The Vermin Club

My post ‘Thought For The Day’ and the comments which followed it discussed a Jan 1997 episode of ‘Kilroy’ in which the studio audience launched angry attacks on Max Clifford. Max was appearing on ‘Kilroy’ after he had been behind media reports which named Jerry Hayes, the then Tory MP for Harlow, as having a clandestine extra-marital relationship with a man. Max was busy being shocked and disgusted at Jerry’s ‘unprotected casual sex with men’, but Kilroy’s studio guests were unanimous in their condemnation of Max, no matter from what angle they approached the story. Some residents of Harlow maintained that they had voted for Jerry and Max had no business sticking his nose in like this. Other people maintained that Max’s scoop had damaged Jerry’s wife.

As well as members of the public, Kilroy’s guests included a few old lags, including the PR guru Julia Hobsbawm and Torygraph journos Annabel Heseltine and Boris. Annabel was livid at Max for destroying the life of a good man. Annabel’s dad Michael Heseltine destroyed the lives of many more people than one good man in his desperation to become PM. As described in previous posts eg. ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’ and ‘Tan yn Llyn’, Heseltine built his entire strategy for Becoming PM on exploiting his knowledge of the barrel of crap in north Wales and its links to the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Heseltine in particular had known about it all for decades, as someone who grew up in Swansea, in the area of another gang with links to Dafydd et al in north Wales and then served as the Tory MP for Tavistock, 1966-74, while Jeremy Thorpe’s activities were widely gossiped about, both in the west country and in Parliament. See previous posts.

Max repeatedly stated on ‘Kilroy’ that his rationale in exposing Jerry Hayes was his desire to damage the Tory Party, because of the damage that they’d done to the NHS. Max was upfront: he wanted to help the Labour Party win the next election. Julia gave Max a lecture on ethics and told him that PR was a business involving integrity and that Max was a pariah in the PR world. Julia did not mention that her business partner in Hobsmawm Macaulay, her own PR company, was her old school friend Sarah Macaulay. Sarah Macaulay became Sarah Brown when she got married in 2000, which meant that in 2007 she became the wife of the PM . When that Kilroy programme was screened, Sarah’s Teddy Bear was expecting to become Chancellor of the Exchequer after the next election and his partner in crime Miranda was preparing to be PM. No-one was in any doubt that this was going to happen, as John Major’s Gov’t lurched from crisis to crisis. Julia’s dad Eric Hobsbawm was the Marxist historian who had spent most of his life involved with the by then old boys who had in the 1950s spawned the New Left. Eric was a regular in publications such as ‘Marxism Today’ in the 1970s and 80s and even managed to make supportive comments about the Windbag. Another big name in the New Left was Ralph Miliband, the dad of Uncle Harry’s two nephews. Between 1994 and Miranda’s election win in May 1997, Uncle Harry’s nephew Ed was working for Sarah’s Teddy Bear in the Opposition Treasury team; the Teddy Bear allowed Uncle Harry’s nephew time off from work to study for a Masters at the LSE. Uncle Harry’s nephew Ed was appointed as the Teddy Bear’s SPAD when the Teddy Bear became Chancellor of the Exchequer in May 1997. Uncle Harry’s other nephew, David, at the time of the ‘Kilroy’ programme, was Miranda’s Head of Policy.

The New Left were always scrapping among themselves but they were united in their desire to kick out the Tories as well as in their desire to see their offspring and the friends of their offspring in influential positions, preferably in Cabinet. Readers will remember that when the Teddy Bear resigned as Leader of the Labour Party and was photographed looking like death – literally, Gordon had the appearance of one who had been preserved in formaldehyde – the only two serious contenders to succeed him were Uncle Harry’s nephews who then went for each others jugulars in the battle. Ed won and once Ed was leader, Ed’s political strategy for Becoming PM was predicated almost entirely on waxing lyrical about Uncle Harry’s loyal service to the NHS. The Uncle Harry who had worked with Top Docs who knew Dafydd et al and were colluding with them, as well as some of the millionaires of Harley Street; although of course Uncle Harry’s expressed loyalty was to the contingent of Top Docs who were in the Socialist Health Association and Loved The NHS, many of whom were also concealing Dafydd and the gang eg. Julian Tudor Spart, Brian Gibbons, John Dunwoody (see previous posts)…

No-one mentioned that Eric and Ralph had known about the Westminster Paedophile Ring as long ago as in the days when they were busy with the New Left, that they had worked in universities alongside people who were concealing it as well as colluding with the regional abuse gangs such as those in Yorkshire, Leicester, north Wales/Cheshire, Cambridge, Oxford, and the north east. No-one mentioned that Eric had for decades had a second home in Croesor in north Wales, that as a girl Julia spent a lot of time there and that the locals were suffering very badly at the hands of the gang in north Wales. See previous posts eg. ‘The Village’. Not that Eric and his friends were ever targets of the gang; indeed Dafydd et al actually proved very helpful to Eric’s circle, which included Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and Bertrand Russell. Awkward customers who blabbed or who were gestating foetuses which were proving embarrassing to other more powerful people were dealt with by Dafydd and before Dafydd, Gwynne the lobotomist. See previous posts.

Julia and Ed were never at risk of being gang raped in a children’s home and found dead when they complained and they never breathed a word to anyone else that this was what was happening to the kids of people who’s parents had not been big wigs in the New Left.

Just to be sure that the info never escaped, Ralph, Stuart Hall and other Towering Lefties did all that they could to hinder Brown’s career because Brown was known to be mates with some Empowered Service Users near Bethesda who were witnesses to and targets of Dafydd et al. See previous posts eg. ‘Life in Cold Blood’ and ‘O Jones, O Jones’.

Then the Teddy Bear and his mate Lord Jack McConnell – who was later FM of Scotland, 2001-07 – got together to stuff over my best friend from school who knew what was happening to me, who had been at Stirling University with Lord Jack and rebuffed him after such events as Lord Jack turning up uninvited in her bed. So Lord Jack and the Teddy Bear stuffed her husband over as well while he was working at the BBC… My friends also found themselves pursued by gangsters as their careers in the media were destroyed (see previous posts eg. ‘The Turn Of The Screw’).

 

The discussion on ‘Kilroy’ also extended to a previous client of Max’s, Mandy Allwood, the woman who in the mid-1990s became pregnant with eight babies after fertility treatment, all the babies subsequently dying. Mandy had recently given media interviews in which she claimed that Max had done her no favours at all and had caused her much distress, which I can believe. Press reports of Mandy’s case concentrated on her less than ‘Hello!’ lifestyle, on her alleged numerous casual men friends and how some of Mandy’s mates even had the temerity to live in council houses. One member of the ‘Kilroy’ studio audience was a young woman who wasn’t famous but who had been targeted by the tabloids to which Max flogged stories and she confirmed that her life had been nearly destroyed by it all.

The audience unanimously agreed that Max was a scumbag. They also unanimously agreed though that like Max, they Supported The NHS and the Top Docs ah they were wonderful. Nobody asked which Top Docs had treated Mandy, who had allowed her to continue with a pregnancy of eight foetuses, why they were not there in terms of supporting her when all the babies died…

I worked in fertility clinics in the late 1980s and early 90s and practices were terrible; patients were lied to, deceived and knowingly flogged treatments that didn’t work. See post ‘Every Sperm Is Sacred – Particularly In Scotland’. That was in the Top Clinics in London and in university hospitals. Fertility clinics in places like Ysbyty Gwynedd had no idea at all what they were doing and I also heard first hand accounts from NHS services in Taunton which suggested that they were equally clueless. I knew other people who worked in fertility clinics who drew the same conclusion as me ie. that the field was full of sharp practice at best, con men at worst. I know of one Top Doctor who’s treatment of one patient was so disrespectful that her husband punched him in the face. There was no prosecution because Mr Jack Glatt really didn’t want the publicity, lest the rest of his patients who had also been insulted and brutalised came forward…

The go-to man for Ethical IVF was Lord Bob Winston at Hammersmith Hospital. Who knew exactly what some of his colleagues were doing. Lord Bob knew how to deal with problems, he passed them on to another team. That’s why when Lord Bob found out that his junior doctor Richard Penketh was a relentless sexual harasser, Lord Bob gave him to Lord Bob’s pal Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain at St George’s Hospital Medical School, where Chamberlain and his colleagues were perpetrating research fraud and facilitating a paedophile ring in south London, as well as colluding with Dafydd et al in north Wales (see post ‘Now Then…’) and in addition the Top Docs at Cardiff University, who had concealed the molesting of George Thomas and co for years, as well as helping Dafydd et al out of course (see previous posts  eg. ‘Oliver!’). The Dean of St George’s overseeing all this was Professor Sir William Asscher, who was a member of the south Wales Jewish community and who, before arriving at St George’s in 1988, had spent his career in Cardiff concealing the organised abuse in Wales (see previous posts). When Chamberlain found that Penketh was too much of a liability even for St George’s, it was said that Penketh would be sent to Wales, because ‘that’s what we do with all the really bad doctors’.

Richard Penketh is now a consultant at the University Hospital in Cardiff and also has a private practice at the Spire Hospital. Dr Brian Gibbons of the People Traffickers gave Penketh an award for excellence when Gibbons was the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister. Whether Penketh has repeated his St George’s extravaganza of having sex with a research assistant in the lab during working hours in Cardiff I don’t know. Unless that is what Gibbons gave Penketh the award for. Not that Penketh held the St George’s record for Ugandan discussions, that was held by one of the female registrars who had sex with I think it was seven men, whom she had never previously met, in one weekend. That was a topic of discussion even at St George’s. I don’t mind that she did that, but she was one of an extended number of dipsticks who were keeping quiet about patient harm and serious wrongdoing. I am delighted to say that she is now featured in women’s magazines as an FGM expert and she also dispenses advice as to whether teenagers need cosmetic surgery on their nether regions. Thinking of a designer vagina, 18th burfday coming up and you might be offered cosmetic surgery as a treat?? Then just go to the former colleague of a bunch of people traffickers and she’ll set you straight…

 

One particularly voluble supporter of the NHS on ‘Kilroy’ who was highly critical of Max was this blog’s friend Little Nell Hodge. Little Nell, as ever, was allowed to mouth off at length about everyone else’s shortcomings without anyone interrupting her and saying ‘can you explain why, when you were the leader of Islington Council, the children’s homes in Islington were infiltrated by a vicious paedophile ring, that you were told about this but ignored it and that some children were murdered and one social worker disappeared?’

Little Nell was of course the woman who identified Miranda as being a man with great potential and worthy of being the Leader of the Labour Party after the unfortunate death of John Smith in the care of the Top Docs at Bart’s, on 12 May 1994. On 9 June 1994, the Head of Bryn Estyn Matt Arnold died from an ‘unspecified blood disease’; Arnold died four days before the opening of the trial of his colleague and friend Peter Howarth and another man, Paul Wilson, for the sexual abuse of boys in care in north Wales. Howarth was convicted and sentenced to ten years, Wilson was cleared on all charges.

Howarth died ‘from a heart attack’ – like John Smith – in HMP Wakefield on 24 April 1997. The Waterhouse Inquiry had opened at the beginning of 1997 – pretty much when the ‘Kilroy’ programme was screened – but soon after the Inquiry opened, there was a break because Sir Ronnie Waterhouse was in desperate need of a holiday in Hong Kong. The need for a holiday came upon Ronnie towards the end of March, so he was away for April. While he was in Hong Kong, Ronnie bumped into Derry Irvine, he of the expensive wallpaper and they had lunch. Ronnie knew Derry because he had previously worked with him on a city fraud case, along with Derry’s delightful two junior barristers, Cherie and Miranda.

When the Kilroy programme was screened in Jan 1997, Little Nell had not yet been given the Gov’t jobs that Miranda eventually bestowed upon her, eg. junior Minister for Employment and Equal Opportunities, 1998-2001; Minister of State for Universities, 2001-03; Minister of State for Children, 2003-05…

At the time of her appearance on the ‘Kilroy’ programme, Little Nell was the Labour MP for Barking, having succeeded Jo Richardson in the seat in June 1994, after Richardson died. Jo Richardson was on the left of the Labour Party’s and their Wimmin’s Champ, who knew about the unlawful denial of NHS abortions in north Wales, the lives being put at risk by the private abortionist(s) in Chester, the disappearance of the babies of patients in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and of course the numerous other crimes of Dafydd’s gang. Richardson said nothing and carefully failed to follow up with enquiries even when the info was staring her in the face. See eg. post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’.

While Little Nell was selected to stand for, and then elected to, Jo Richardson’s former seat, Dafydd and the gang were complaining bitterly about me and the danger that I represented to their lives and limbs, particularly after, in the early summer of 1994, I and Patient F made representation to two Mental Health Act Commissioners and told them that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that serious complaints against him were not being investigated. The Commissioners admitted to us that they had heard such complaints about Dafydd many times before and one of the Commissioners later told a nurse manager at the Hergest Unit, Jeff Crowther, who sat in the office with us as we talked to the Commissioners, that she head first heard these complaints about Dafydd in the 1960s. Joyce Kaye of the Mental Health Act Commission subsequently wrote to the Gwynedd Community Health Trust on a number of occasions asking for a response to our allegations, but they did not receive one. Instead, letters between Dafydd, Tony Francis et al and the senior managers of the Trust began circulating, stating that I was extremely dangerous and steps had to be taken to Protect Dafydd because everyone knew that I would soon carry out a murderous attack on him… See post ‘The Banality Of Evil’.

There is another person in north Wales who was hated as much as I was by the Top Docs and like me, was arrested repeatedly and unlawfully refused all NHS care. He arrived in Snowdonia in the late 1970s and before that had begun training as a social worker at the North London Poly but withdrew after he raised concerns about the abuse and neglect of clients by Haringey and Islington Councils which he witnessed on placement. His tutors told him that students were not allowed to criticise the Councils. He made the mistake of telling people in north Wales about this, not realising that Dafydd’s gang was linked to the gangs in other regions of the UK, including Haringey and Islington. He also knew Little Nell in London because he was a Labour Party activist, although he gave up with that after he moved to north Wales because he couldn’t bear the corruption any longer. Particularly that of Betty Williams, who was welcomed into the Commons in 1997 as a rather elderly Blair’s babe. See previous posts.

Er -I wonder… I always presumed that in being selected to fight the Conwy seat, the hopeless Betty was rewarded at last for her valiant colluding with the people traffickers of Gwynedd, after all she was a Gwynedd County Councillor while the gang enjoyed themselves in Gwynedd County Council’s children’s homes. She was hardly what Miranda/Millbank/Mandy wanted though, Betty was sad and a figure of fun. One couldn’t Follettise Betty, the nylon slacks would get in the way. Don’t tell me – Betty capitalised on what she knew had happened to this man in Islington and Haringey and his friend (me) in north Wales and London… Come on Betty, fess up, did you bag your seat on the back of the attacks on us by Dafydd and the gang???

 

In 1992, the ‘Evening Standard’ reported yet more allegations of abuse in the Islington children’s homes, having previously reported on this matter. Its initial report was slated by Little Nell as a “sensationalist piece of gutter journalism”, although she subsequently apologised, claiming that her officials had given her false information. In 1995, the White Report into sexual abuse in Islington children’s homes confirmed that the Council had failed to adequately investigate the allegations, claiming that its doctrinaire interpretation of equal opportunities created a climate of fear of being branded homophobic. The White Report was damning, but like Waterhouse and all the other Reports into the abuse of kids in care, it still played down just how bad things were. Ian White was one of the Directors of Social Services at the time who played musical chairs, moving from troubled authority to troubled authority, colluding with the worst abuses, yet capitalising on his reputation as the Man Who Exposed Islington. A genuinely critical social worker was removed from White’s Inquiry team because she really was confronting the worst of the criminality. See previous posts.

I note that White reported in 1995. So Little Nell was selected for a safe Labour seat and bagged her place in the Commons well before before the contents of the White Report confirmed at least some of what had happened in Islington children’s homes when Little Nell was captain of the ship then. Nice timing Millbank.

In 2003, following Little Nell’s appointment as Minister for Children, Demetrios Panton went public with his allegations that he had been the subject of abuse in Islington Council care and that although he had repeatedly raised the matter, he had got nowhere. Demetrios had first complained about what had happened to him as a kid in the care of Islington Council in 1985 but he was ignored. Panton identified Little Nell’s complacency as being ultimately responsible for the abuse that he alleged that he had suffered. Liz Davies, the Islington whistleblowing social worker, simultaneously went public regarding the concerns that she had previously raised while working for the Council. Following a media campaign by several national newspapers calling for Little Nell to resign from her new post, Little Nell wrote to Panton, apologising for referring to him as “an extremely disturbed person” in an earlier letter to the BBC Chairman Gavyn Davies, which had been broadcast on Radio 4’s ‘Today’ programme. A formal apology to Panton was made in the High Court on 19 November 2003 by Little Nell’s barrister, together with a financial settlement of £30,000.

Gavyn Davies was one of the casualties of the Hutton Report when he resigned as BBC Chairman in Jan 2004. Readers will remember that Hutton was widely perceived to be an all-out attack on the BBC Governors by Miranda and Alastair Campbell. There was one Guvnor who refused to resign and a lot of people frothed at the mouth over his refusal to jump; it was Merfyn Jones, the VC of Bangor University who was at the time under attack from the combined forces of the gwerin and the paedophiles’ friends, assisted by Miranda and Gordon. See previous posts eg. ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’. Gavyn is a very rich banker who’s wife is a pal of Gordon’s and she worked as Gordon’s Private Secretary. Gavyn previously worked in Harold Wilson’s Policy Unit, 1974-76 and was an economic adviser to James Callaghan, 1976–1979. Callaghan’s daughter Baroness Margaret Jay was appointed a Health Minister by Miranda, in which role she concealed all the crap in north Wales. See previous posts. When Gavyn was appointed to the BBC, by Miranda, there were accusations of cronyism…

Gavyn went to St John’s College, Cambridge, which is where Sir Ronnie Waterhouse studied, as did a number of Ronnie’s mates and one of Ronnie’s children, Ronnie being an enthusiastic member of the alumni…

Gavyn could resign from the BBC and it wouldn’t make a jot of difference to him. He is filthy rich and a mate of the Gov’t which pretended to sacrifice him. But Merfyn – er, if Merfyn had lost his public positions in 2004, he wouldn’t have been on the streets, but he wouldn’t have carried on living it up a la Gavyn…

Merfyn grew up in Llanfrothen, where Eric Hobsbawm et al had their second homes. Merfyn knew about the gang and he knew about the homicidal regional NHS and he suffered personally in 2008 when his wife died in the care of Dafydd’s colleagues at the Walton Centre. Merfyn’s late wife had previously spilt the paedophiles’ pints herself and she was never forgiven (see previous posts, eg. ‘Badlands’). Furthermore, Merfyn’s late wife’s first husband was the US sociologist Orlando Patterson, who publishes right-on things much admired by the US elite who have links to Miranda and Cherie (see previous posts eg. ‘Right To Reply’ and ‘The Bay Of Pigs Invasion’).

Merfyn’s late wife did her first degree at the LSE. I’ve never seen a copy of Nerys’s CV but from what I can work out, Nerys will have been at the LSE at about the same time as Little Nell and a few other hypocrites who later occupied roles where they were able to conceal the fact that disadvantaged people were being trafficked by the social services or exterminated by the NHS.

So Miranda and Alastair, I’ll be doing a bit more digging with regard to that BBC scrap. I do hope that it wasn’t the first onslaught against Merfyn, before the final one in which Top Docs and others conspired to allow patients to die while he was Chairman of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board in order to force his resignation and retreat from public life… See post ‘The Point Is To Change It’.

 

I have in my possession a copy of a letter written by Dr Tony Francis in the late 1980s which describes me as ‘extremely disturbed’ because of the ‘allegations’ that I was making about ‘doctors’, ‘even deceased doctors’. My allegations were that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and that Gwynne the lobotomist had propositioned me. That letter was sent to numerous people including members of the BMA and I only learned of its existence a few years ago when my lawyers finally acquired copies of my files.

I am waiting for the BMA and everyone else to comment and, I presume, a settlement far bigger than £30k… Can you pass the hat around Little Nell?

I was always a little chilled by Hobsbawm’s support of murderous regimes as long as they were Revolutionary and Communist. He drew the line at Peru’s Shining Path Guerrilla Army but that’s how bad one had to be for Eric to think that you’d gone a bit far. I shouldn’t really be that surprised that he kept his mouth shut about what was happening to us at the hands of Dafydd’s gang because our sacrifice was Worth It for the Bigger Quest. That’s the Eric who lived in Hampstead – people in Gwynedd kept telling me that Eric’s second home in Croesor was better than the only homes that most locals in Llanfrothen/Croesr had – and always enjoyed an acceptable level of treatment from the Top Docs, who died in the Royal Free hospital at a grand old age, in the care of the dear old NHS, as all the boats were pushed out for him…

Meanwhile in north Wales:

Oh well, Eric Hobsbawm’s daughter is a friend of Uncle Harry’s nephew isn’t she, of course her dad wasn’t going to be dumped naked on a bed and left to die in his own turds and urine a la Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. Uncle Harry’s nephew dispensed words of kindness and admiration when Eric died, stating that Eric was “an extraordinary historian, a man passionate about his politics … He brought history out of the ivory tower and into people’s lives”. Which suggests that Uncle Harry’s nephew has never read one of Hobsbawm’s books; they are by any standards very ivory tower. Although ‘The New Century: In Conversation with Antonio Polito’ was of course serialised in ‘Take A Break’ magazine.
Hobsbawm was cremated at Golders Green Crematorium and his ashes were interred in Highgate Cemetary. In turd might have been a more symbolically appropriate place to have put those ashes.

Little Nell’s second husband was Sir Henry Hodge, the solicitor who was one of the first solicitors to be appointed a High Court judge, in 2004. Little Nell married Sir Henry in 1978, which was the same year that she divorced her first husband, Andrew Watson, whom Little Nell married in 1968. Little Nell’s and Andrew’s daughter, Lizzie Watson, is a BBC journalist who was appointed Deputy Editor of BBC News at 6 pm and 10 pm in February 2018. By Feb 2018 this blog was gathering quite a readership. One of the many things that I have blogged about was my linking up with two social work lecturers at the Royal Holloway College in London when I worked at Bangor, who, like Brown and I, had found that Service User Involvement was being used to hide serious abuse of patients. My friends at Royal Holloway told me that in London, as in north Wales, there was a huge conspiracy of silence and a massive bullying problem if anyone dared speak out. Both of them have since left the Royal Holloway. 

Little Nell looks worried.

The ‘Kilroy’ programme was screened in Jan 1997, just as the Waterhouse Inquiry opened. The Waterhouse Inquiry had been announced by William Hague in 1996, the same year in which the Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974 was submitted. No-one but the Council’s insurers and their lawyers ever got to read the Jillings Report at the time, not even the Councillors, because the legal adviser for Municipal Mutual, the Council’s insurers – Municipal Mutual were also the insurers of the North Wales Police – instructed that the Report should be made available to no-one at all and if the contents were leaked, Municipal Mutual should withdraw the Council’s insurance cover, leaving the Councillors themselves to personally foot the bill for compensation if any of the former kids in care sued. The Council was also told that if Malcolm King, the Chair of the Social Services Committee who had asked a few too many questions about kids being abused, did get hold of any part of the Jillings Report and divulge the contents, he should be sacked. All known copies of the Report were later pulped. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’

Shining Path Hammer and Sickle.svg

 

Municipal Mutual’s legal adviser who ensured the total suppression of the Jillings Report was Michael Beloff QC, a colleague of Cherie’s and a friend of both Cherie and Miranda. Beloff was a visitor to Chequers when Miranda was President of the World. Except for America of course. Michael Beloff’s dad Lord Max Beloff was a friend of Ioan Bowen Rees, who was Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council throughout the years when the gang enjoyed themselves in the Council’s children’s homes unhindered. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ A number of people directly involved with the north Wales child abuse scandal were LSE graduates. Before Ioan was Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council, he was County Secretary for Dyfed County Council. Where a paedophile ring operated with the collusion of the welfare services and NHS which had links to the gang in north Wales.

Lord Max was a mate of Thatch’s associates in the Institute for Economic Affairs and was one of the movers and shakers behind the creation of the University of Buckingham, of which Thatch subsequently became Chancellor. See previous posts.

Shortly after the Jillings Report was completed in 1996, Clwyd County Council disappeared after a shake-up recommended by the Local Gov’t Boundary Commission, the Chairman of which was Professor Eric Sunderland, who in 1995 had retired as Principal of Bangor University, although he was fit, healthy, lived another 20 years and continued to hold a number of roles in public life and was deeply involved with Bangor University until shortly before he died.

 

Shining Path Hammer and Sickle.svg

 

John Jillings and his team admitted that what they had uncovered in north Wales was horrific, that kids had been terribly abused since Clwyd County Council was created in 1974, that the abuse was widespread and known about by all agencies at all levels but no-one had made any effort at all to protect the kids. Jillings speculated that there had been organised abuse in north Wales as far back as the 1940s at least. Jillings flatly refused to comment on whether the panel thought that a paedophile ring was at work in north Wales.

In 2013, someone found a copy of the Jillings Report and after all those years it was made available. It was so heavily redacted that it was virtually meaningless, even to people who knew the region and the people who had been involved in the paedophile ring which of course had never existed.

 

Cherie and Michael Beloff QC are well-networked into the circle of London-based Radical Barristers who knew about Dafydd’s gang but kept schtum, one of which is Michael Mansfield. Michael Mansfield remained schtum even after I wrote to him about the abuses of Gwynedd Social Services in 1993. Another member of the Mansfield Community is St Helena of the Kennedys, who worked extensively with Professor Nigel Eastman of St George’s Hospital Medical School. St Helena acknowledged Nigel in her book about the injustice suffered by Wimmin at the hands of the British Criminal Justice System, ‘Eve Was Framed’ (see post ‘Eve Was Framed – As Were A Lot Of Other People’). Nigel Eastman was one of the Top Docs who ‘assessed’ me at St George’s Hospital Medical School in 1991, was told by his own colleagues in writing that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and that they thought that Tony Francis was as well, that I wasn’t psychotic but that I had been suicidal entirely as a result of what had been happening to me at the hands of Dafydd and the gang. Eastman told me to go back to north Wales because ‘they know you there’. I was not offered any sort of follow up care or any further appointments. See previous posts.

Some years ago Julia Hobsbawm held a do at the Portmeirion Hotel in Gwynedd, at which St Helena was one of the guests of honour.

‘Do you know, I think that Stalin probably got it basically correct, but ooh the Shining Path, well, no they wouldn’t get my vote. Now tell me Helena, what case are you working on at the moment? I am so glad that the Poor have someone to champion their cause. Have you met Sarah’s Teddy Bear? Oh of course you have, he and his mate Lord Jack been shafting Sally and Brown’s closest friends since 1986…’

 

The Portmeirion Hotel is lovely and it has the poshest bogs in the whole of Gwynedd and when I went there, a harpist was strumming away as well. Unfortunately though, it really was a case of me not being able to understand anything on the menu; not because it was French, I can do a bit of schoolgirl French, it was the nature of the food, I had never encountered such matter before, so I just randomly selected a few things. I’m sure that Julia and St Helena will not have found themselves faced with the same difficulty at the Portmeirion Hotel, they’ll probably have had more trouble deciphering the menu at the Penguin Cafe in Bangor, not being used to such places.

 

Max Clifford of course is dead now, having died while serving a prison sentence for sexual assaults on young women. I’m sure that Max was an awful man, but Julia and Annabel concealed things just as bad as Max’s crimes.

When the ‘Kilroy’ programme in question was screened, John Birt was DG of the BBC. The John Birt who was very good mates with Mandelson. Birt and Mandy had both worked at LWT together. In the early 1990s, Cilla was the biggest light entertainment star on LWT and Cilla’s ‘Blind Date’ alone was so successful that it reversed the fortunes of LWT after a difficult time. Cilla was a close friend of Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain of St George’s Hospital Medical School who was colluding with Dafydd’s gang as well as others. Chamberlain grew up in south Wales, where his dad was Secretary to the Lord Mayor of Cardiff. Chamberlain went to Llandaff Cathedral School and returned to Wales after he retired from the NHS in 2000, when he bagged a job lecturing in the history of medicine at Swansea University, despite having been involved in a major research fraud scandal at St George’s and his Academic Unit being closed after another scandal erupted shortly after the research fraud. Following that, dear old Chamberlain’s colleagues were in the news once more after one of them, Rashmi Varma, was caught coercing NHS fertility patients to donate eggs to private patients… See previous posts eg. ‘Now Then…’

In Jan 1997, William Hague was still Secretary of State for Wales; Hague had orchestrated the cover up which was the Waterhouse Inquiry.

 

As for Kilroy-Silk, the host of the Jan 1997 show, well Kilroy-Silk invited Dafydd onto one of his shows as the star guest in the mid-1990s. Dafydd was wheeled out as an expert on PTSD. Michael Mansfield appeared on ‘Kilroy’ as well, but not in the same programme as Dafydd. The real laugh though is that before Dafydd decided that he needed a slot on ‘Kilroy’ was that Brown appeared on ‘Kilroy’ and a lot of people in north Wales saw him on there…

Kilroy-Silk and Dafydd’s gang go back a lot further than the mid-1990s. Before Kilroy-Silk became a TV star, Robert Kilroy-Silk was the Labour MP for Ormskirk, 1974-83 and then Knowsley North, 1983-86. Both constituencies were strongholds of Dafydd’s gang’s Merseyside branch. Kilroy-Silk left the Commons to present ‘Kilroy’, 1986-2004, then returned to politics. He then served as the MEP for the East Midlands, 2004-09. Having been elected as a UKIP candidate, Kilroy-Silk left in 2005 to found a new party which he called Veritas. He resigned as its leader later the same year and sat as an independent MEP for the rest of his term. Kilroy-Silk’s adventures with UKIP and Veritas were entertaining, but being in UKIP, Kilroy-Silk will have known Beata Brookes, a former Denbighshire County Council social worker who for years was a high profile Tory politician in Wales. Beata Brookes was a fully paid up member of Dafydd’s gang and for decades ruled supreme over the NHS and Social Services in north east Wales, as well as all the charidees for disabled people in the region. Beata was of a similar vintage to Dafydd and Lucille, she had been involved with the procuring of young people from Wales to provide sexual services in people England, including in Liverpool and London, since Macmillan’s era. See previous posts.

When Kilroy-Silk was in the Commons, he was known as someone who was constantly ingratiating himself to Sir Ray Powell, the Labour MP for Ogmore, 1979-2001, who served as an Opposition Whip. Kilroy-Silk was widely believed to be picking up tips and advice from Powell. Ray Powell was someone who built his power base on his knowledge of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the trafficking gang which supplied it, including those in Wales. See previous posts for more information about Ray Powell and Kilroy-Silk’s toadying to him.

Kilroy-Silk grew up in Birmingham and attended the LSE at about the same time as Little Nell et al… After graduating, Kilroy-Silk worked as a lecturer in politics at the University of Liverpool, 1966-74. Dafydd’s mates ran Liverpool University during those and the succeeding years and not just the Medical School either. See previous posts.

 

 

My post ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’ explained that after Miranda had been elected, between Nov 1997-Jane 1998, the Select Committee on Health, with regard to children being looked after by local authorities, took evidence from a substantial list of people working in the social care system and representatives of local authorities who had already been involved with the system which had long been riddled with serious abuse and neglect. I haven’t got time to review all the people and Boroughs which were listed, although I might return to them in a future post.

The Select Committee also took evidence from the then Parliamentary Under-Secretary at the DoH, Paul Boateng MP and DoH officials. Boateng has featured many times previously on this blog, as has his wife Janet. Boateng knew about the gang in north Wales; he was a solicitor working for Birnberg & Co when Birnberg & Co acted for Mary Wynch when she took legal action against Dafydd and the gang in the 1980s. Boateng became the Labour MP for Brent South in 1987, where children were neglected and abused in care. His wife Janet worked as a social worker for Lambeth while that Borough was sending kids to children’s homes in north Wales and while they were being abused in Lambeth homes as well. Janet Boateng doubled up as the Chair of the Social Services Committee, which left her deeply compromised when Tyra Henry was murdered while in the care of Lambeth. See previous posts. Esther Rantzen’s sister was a social worker in Lambeth and Esther’s sister’s boss Valerie Howarth was later appointed Chief Executive of Childline. Valerie is now Baroness Valerie. One of the Boatengs’ sons was convicted of rape a few years ago. Allegations have been made that Paul Boateng was very closely involved with child abusers in Lambeth. See previous posts.

 

Hansard states that in February 1998 – by which time Waterhouse had finished hearing evidence in public from former kids in care in north Wales, some of whom collapsed when they recounted the beatings and gang rapes, while they were denounced as liars only after compensation – the Select Committee on Health held a joint evidence session with the Education Sub-Committee of the Education and Employment Committee, at which evidence was taken from David Blunkett MP, Secretary of State for Education and Employment. Blunkett, memorably the father of the Little Lad which led to a great deal of trouble and Blunkett’s eventual resignation, disgraced himself in many ways when he was in Gov’t. Blunkett for years led Sheffield City Council and he knew about the organised abuse and police corruption in Yorkshire. He also knew about the gang in north Wales and presumably the gangs elsewhere and as Home Secretary oversaw the continued criminality in north Wales on the part of the gang.

Hansard informed us that in 1997-98, the Select Committee on Health utilised a number of Specialist Advisers, who were: Professor Jane Aldgate, Chair of Social Work and Director of the School of Social Work, University of Leicester; Mrs Rosemary Arkley, formerly Inspector in the Social Services Inspectorate, Department of Health; and Mr Chris Davies, Director of Social Services at Somerset County Council.

 

Professor Jane Aldgate obviously just had to be a Specialist Adviser on ‘Looked After Children’, holding the Chair of Social Work at the University of Leicester, being an institution which in 1998 was colluding with the trafficking gang in Leicestershire which had links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. The gang in Leicester was facilitated principally by the Social Services and the NHS, but the City Council, the police and the legal/criminal justice system were fully on board with it as well. See previous posts. In 1987-88, Dr James Earp, a Top Doctor in Leicester, concealed the criminality of Dafydd’s gang. See post ‘An Expert From England’.

Jane Aldgate features on the website of the ‘Centre for Confidence and Well-Being’, which is ‘working for cultural and social change’:

The Scottish social work services contribution to the event was led by Professor Jane Aldgate who set out the ‘Getting It Right for Every Child’  aims and programme with updates from the Highland Pathfinder Project. Jane argued that effecting the changes was still a long road ahead for all professionals involved but already clear results from innovative practices could be seen; such as 75 per cent drop in referrals from Police to the Reporter in one pilot area. Jane spent some time outlining a useful way to think about resilience. She also argued for the importance of providing special protection for vulnerable children.

One can download Professor Aldgate’s Powerpoint presentation ‘Better Support for Vulnerable Children’ from the website but it is so banal that I wouldn’t advise anyone to bother.

I’m not sure when this event starring Jane Aldgate actually was, but Aldgate had served as an adviser to the Scottish Gov’t. Lord Jack McConnell is not the only link between Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and Scotland. Ioan Bowen Rees, the former Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council was an expert on local democracy no less – that’s how he got to know Lord Max Beloff – and had many links with scholars in Europe theorising on local government, democracy and politics. Some of these were Scottish and Ioan had links with Scottish Nationalists being a Plaid activist. See post ‘Events, Dear Boy, Events’.

An online announcement by the Open University boasting of their staff who have picked up gongs, informed us that in 2007, the OU’s Professor of Social Care Jane Aldgate, ‘who is also a Gov’t adviser on Child Welfare’ was awarded an OBE for services to Children and Families. Upon receipt of her gong, Aldgate said: ‘It is very exciting news. It feels like recognition of 30 years of work. The research I do contributes to developments in policy and improving practice for children in need and in care and their families. It is an area where there is still a great deal to do. I hope this honour will help me to continue to make a difference in the lives of children and their families. The OU’s Faculty of Health and Social Care specialises in research about users of health and social care services so in a way, this honour reflects the work of the whole faculty.’

By 2007, Brown and I had begun publishing about the mental health services in north Wales.

I haven’t heard any comments from Jane with regard to the historical investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal or the Westminster Paedophile Ring or the IICSA or indeed the trafficking gangs which are now operating across the UK, targeting kids in care; most UK Social Services Depts are now being investigated by police as a result. 30 years of Jane’s contribution!

The OU website also states that: Jane has been with the OU since 1999 when she joined from Leicester University. Her main area of research is Children in the Care System and in Foster and Kinship care. Since 2004, she has acted as an adviser to the Department of Health and the Scottish Executive on policy in these areas. Jane has also designed the conceptual framework for the post-qualifying Award in Child Care for social workers in England.

It has recently been admitted by the Westminster Gov’t that the training for social workers in England, particularly re child protection, is woefully inadequate and it is currently being overhauled.

 

Jane’s brief biography which accompanies an online advert for a speaking engagement explains that Jane works at: The Open University and holds honorary posts at the University of Edinburgh and Queens University, Belfast. She has researched and written about a wide range of child welfare and social work issues including children’s development, family support, and services for kinship care and looked after children. Jane is currently a Professional Adviser to the Scottish Government. She is Patron of the charity, Kinsfolk Carers Edinburgh. Jane was awarded an OBE in 2007 for services to children and families.

In Nov 2007 Aldgate gave a seminar in the Glasgow School of Social Work Research Seminar Series; a recording of the seminar is available online and on the webpage there is text telling us that: ‘Professor Jane Aldgate OBE (The Open University). ‘Getting It Right For Every Child’ is an integrated system of getting the right help to children at the right time in their lives through agencies working together to provide a coherent, evidence based system of assessment, planning and recording. It aims to cut down bureaucracy and help children get the service they need when they need it. It is founded on understanding how children develop to reach their full potential and the fundamental value of children’s and families’ participation in assessment and planning’.

The year previously, 2006, Jane’s reputation as an Expert became yet greater after the publication of her volume which was co-authored with Jane Tunstill and Marilyn Hughes:

Improving Children's Services Networks: Lessons from Family Centres PDF (Adobe DRM) download by Jane Aldgate

The blurb which accompanied the book told us that ‘Professor Jane Tunstill is Visiting Professor of Social Work at the Social Care Workforce Research Unit of Kings College, London and Director of the Implementation Module of the DfES commissioned National Evaluation of Sure Start. Jane Aldgate OBE is Professor Emerita at the Open University and Honorary Professorial Fellow at the University of Edinburgh.’

Jane Tunstill was a member of the Jillings Inquiry panel in north Wales and is Emeritus Professor at the Royal Holloway College, London…

Note the title of the book co-authored by Aldgate and Tunstill – ‘Improving Children’s Services Networks’; Networks are indeed the issue. The networks are not being used to provide services or to ‘share best practice’; the networks are being used at worst to facilitate abuse and at best to protect professionals who are culpable. Furthermore Little Nell seems to be a presence in most of the networks.

Jane Aldgate has also co-authored many journal articles with Wendy Rose, an OU academic who was previously a senior civil servant advising Gov’t  on children’s policy. Aldgate and Rose co-authored the 2010 volume ‘Improving Outcomes for Children and Families’.

Er, Rotherham? Rochdale? Telford? Oxford?

When I first discovered the joys of Prof Jane Aldgate, there was a very useful profile of Jane online which outlined her whole career and named some particularly mad Top Doctors in Scotland with whom she trained and worked when she was young; however that profile has disappeared from the internet since I mentioned in my post ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’ that I would be blogging about Jane. I am really going to have to stop giving any clues as to whom I am investigating… Unfortunately for Jane and whoever is trying to photo shop her career history, I can remember the names of some of the mad old Top Doctors with whom Jane worked.

At the start of her career, Jane Aldgate was based in Glasgow. Dr Sam Galbraith, the neurosurgeon whom the Windbag lovingly embraced as a member of the Labour Party and was then fast-tracked into a safe Labour seat and Ministerial posts but who sadly was a complete shitbag and not the saviour that the Labour Party had hoped that he would be, was a Top Doctor in Glasgow and had spent his whole career there. Dr Sam arrived in the Labour Party when Mary Wynch, Alison Taylor and I just would not shut up about Dafydd and the gang. See previous posts for further information on the catastrophe that was Dr Sam and his misuse of Ministerial perks.

 

Jane Aldgate was one of the people who learned at the knees of John Derg ‘Jock’ Sutherland and his pals. John Derg Sutherland (23 April 1905 – 14 June 1991) was a Scottish Top Doctor, psychoanalyst and theorist, notable for his role as Medical Director of the Tavistock Clinic, 1947-68, while the Tavi was concealing organised abuse. Jock was born in Edinburgh and studied Medicine at both Edinburgh and Glasgow Universities. As a psychiatrist in Edinburgh, Sutherland undertook a training analysis with W.R.D. Fairbairn.

William Ronald Dodds Fairbairn (11 August 1889 – 31 December 1964) was a central figure in the development of the object relations theory of psychoanalysis. Ronald Fairbairn was born at the Red House, Cluny Gardens, Edinburgh, the only child of Cecilia and Thomas Fairbairn. Thomas Fairbairn was President of the Edinburgh Architectural Association. Ronald was educated at Merchiston Castle School and Edinburgh University, where he studied divinity and Hellenic Greek. In WW I Fairbairn served under General Allenby in the Palestine campaign. On his return home Fairbairn began medical training at Edinburgh. After qualifying, Fairbairn lectured in psychology at Edinburgh University and also independently practised analysis. In 1931 Fairbairn was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Fairbairn was Consultant Psychiatrist to the Ministry of Pensions, 1941-54. Fairbairn was an associate member of the British Psychoanalytical Society. He died in Edinburgh at the age of 75.

One of Ronald Fairbairn’s best known works was ‘Psychoanalytical Studies of Personality’ (1952), a collection of previously published papers. The table of contents includes:

Part Two: Clinical Papers: Chapter I: Notes on the Religious Phantasies of a Female Patient (1927); Chapter II: Features in the Analysis of a Patient with a Physical Genital Abnormality (1931); Chapter III: The Effect of a King’s Death Upon Patients Undergoing Analysis (1936).

Part Three: Miscellaneous Papers: Chapter IV: The Treatment and Rehabilitation of Sexual Offenders (1946).

The son of this giant of analysis who pronounced on religious phantasies of female patients, on patients with genital abnormalities, on patients affected by a King’s death and on the rehabilitation of sex offenders, was the father of one of the most notorious MPs who’s presence has ever graced the House, Nicholas Fairbairn. Readers may remember my previous posts which featured Fairbairn and even if they don’t, older readers with an interest in politics will never have forgotten Nicky Fairbairn.

Fairbairn was a barrister and the Tory MP for Kinross and Western Perthshire, October 1974-83, then for Perth and Kinross until his death in 1995. Fairbairn succeeded Sir Alec Douglas Home in the seat.

.As a student at Edinburgh University and during much of the rest of his younger life, Fairbairn was a promiscuous bisexual and a very heavy drinker, but was described flatteringly as flamboyant and charismatic. As he aged it became obvious that Fairbairn was an aggressive drunk and there were instances of him being violent towards women. He lived in a castle, turned up to the Commons dressed head to toe in tartan and completely pissed to boot and was renowned for his extra-marital mistresses, one of whom tried to commit suicide by hanging herself in a public place in central London in 1981. No-one asked why this lady had resorted to such drastic measures and there was much sympathy for ‘poor Nicky’ who had been embarrassed by this madwoman.

Poor Nicky also reached his career zenith in 1981, when Krakatoa erupted after Thatch had been stupid enough to appoint him Solicitor General for Scotland in 1979. Thatch had wanted to make Fairbairn Lord Advocate, but she was told by people who knew Poor Nicky in no uncertain terms that he was completely unsuitable for high office, so Thatch gave Fairbairn the next best job and appointed Lord James Mackay of Clashfern as Lord Advocate, who wasn’t even a member of the Tory Party but Scottish Tories were a rare species at the time. Nicky found himself the centre of one hell of a row as a result of the Glasgow Rape Case, in which three young men grabbed a woman unknown to them who was minding her own business walking home through the east end of Glasgow, raped her, slashed her to bits with a razor and nearly murdered her in the process. She only survived because she was discovered and helped. The men made a full confession to the police. Fairbairn dropped the prosecution because the victim of the rape had ‘received psychiatric treatment’. She had in fact received counselling only because of the attack on her and Top Doctors then declared that she would not make a credible witness. It is standard practice to refer victims of sexual assault for counselling or psychiatric treatment and this is always used to discredit them should they make a formal complaint. The wider public were not aware of this until the Glasgow Rape Case and there was one hell of a row. For years when I was younger, like many other people at the time, I found it very upsetting that Top Doctors who had treated the victims of sex crime were always used to discredit them; there was clearly a major problem that was presented as being just an aspect of the cold heartless legal process. The legal process has to be cold, it’s a legal process not a pink pussy cat and furthermore the introduction of heart-warming victim impact statements has not proved to be a good idea. However, I continued to wonder why no Top Docs ever spoke out about the way in which their evidence was ALWAYS used. I now know that their evidence was and is designed to be used to conceal sexual abuse, it is what the psychiatric establishment has been doing from its earliest days and that is why Top Docs are inevitably involved with witnesses. It is the ultimate fix.

 

Nicholas Fairbairn ended up resigning but only because he breached protocol by discussing the Glasgow Rape Case with a journalist. After a media campaign, a private prosecution was brought by the victim in 1982 under ancient Scottish law. It was known as the Carol X case. All three of the perpetrators were convicted, with one sentenced to 12 years in prison. Although the Glasgow Rape Case brought public attention to the blatant and deliberate abuse of psychiatry in cases of sexual assault, sadly Carol X fared very badly. She became an alcoholic and ended up destitute and died a few years later.

Nevertheless, Fairbairn was knighted in 1988. Which was the year that Dafydd and the gang got even busier behind the scenes as I refused to withdraw my complaint. In 1988 the gang planted one of Tony Francis’s psychiatrist mates, Peter Macguire, in a Royal Marsden Hospital cancer research team funded by Cancer Research Campaign, just after I embarked upon a career in cancer research, funded by the CRC. Max Clifford raised a great deal of money for the Royal Marsden. Sadly for Macguire, it all backfired rather badly because Macguire and chums were perpetrating a research fraud which was exposed in 1991. It resulted in the suicide of their colleague Prof Tim McElwain, but Macguire et al didn’t give a stuff and other members of the team went on to become big names in cancer research and one of them in mental health research. See posts ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’.

I have recently been told that Dr Adrian Bell and Professor Fergus Lowe from Bangor University had a hand in formulating that particular plan to stymy my career.

 

Fairbairn’s immediate boss, Lord Mackay of Clashfern, was a strict Scottish Presbytarian, who consistently appointed people who had concealed organised abuse, including by Dafydd’s gang, to senior legal positions. See previous posts. Baroness Patricia Scotland, who was one of the lawyers employed at the Waterhouse Inquiry to insult the former kids in care who gave evidence and also accuse them of lying, was appointed a QC by James MacKay, he was a big fan of hers. See previous posts for details of Patsy Scotland’s career of shame and the careers of shame of many of her mates.

During a Commons debate in 1994 regarding equality of age of consent for same and mixed-gender couples, Fairbairn was called to order by the Speaker Betty Boothroyd after starting a description of the “perverse mechanics” of sodomy. Fairbairn should have asked Sir Peter Morrison, Greville Janner, Cyril Smith, Norman St John Stevas and George Thomas to have assisted him, they all had plenty of experience, including with non-consenting minors. Betty probably knew rather more about the perverse mechanics of sodomy than she let on as well, Betty having concealed the child molesting of all of the previously named politicians and who at that very time was, along with the rest of Parliament, ignoring the havoc which the criminality of Dafydd et al was causing in north Wales. See previous posts for info on Boothroyd. Fairbairn voted against equality between the genders re the age of consent in 1994, although earlier in his career Fairbairn had been a supporter of the Scottish Minorities Group. It was three members of the Scottish Minorities Group who formed PIE (Paedophile Information Exchange) in Oct 1974.

Screen Shot 2015-03-09 at 13.49.53 

PIE became affiliated to the NCCL, with which many people who later became New Labour big wigs were involved eg. Paul Boateng, Harriet Harman, Patricia Hewitt, Little Nell’s husband Sir Henry Hodge etc. See previous posts. Keith Hose, a leading light in PIE, subsequently held an NCCL session at a MIND conference on paedophiles’ rights, while Tessa Jowell was Deputy Director of MIND.

One of the ways in which one Hergest patient entertained himself in the 1990s was by ringing up Dafydd pretending to be a gay Scotsman, Donald MacDuff, who was in love with Dafydd. The gay Scotsman claimed to have been at Liverpool Medical School with Dafydd and before Dafydd finally realised that this was a patient having a laugh at his expense, Dafydd told MacDuff that he remembered him from Liverpool. MacDuff’s creator invented a whole fantasy world for the benefit of Dafydd, including a doctor’s surgery in Edinburgh where he worked – in Queen’s Street of course – and all the jolly japes that he and Dafydd had got up to in the dorms at Liverpool. I’ve just had a look at archive material from the Scottish Minorities Group and I note that it references remarkably similar things to MacDuff’s world; a gay centre in Queen’s Crescent (but in Glasgow rather than Edinburgh) and all sorts of people and places in Edinburgh.

There was of course a paedophile/trafficking ring in Scotland in the 1970s and 80s; Tam Paton, the manager of the Bay City Rollers and an Edinburgh-based gangster, was part of it and it stretched over into Glasgow as well. The ring involved Top Doctors and lawyers and the members were so well-protected that when complaints were made – including by a member of the Rollers – they went nowhere. In 2000, Derek Longmuir, the former drummer of the Rollers who was now in middle age, was charged with offences relating to child porn; he was working as an Angel at the time at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary where he had worked since 1993, having volunteered at the Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh before he began training as an Angel in 1990. Longmuir was found guilty but got off remarkably lightly and was allowed to continue nursing. See previous posts ‘eg. ‘Remember Girls – Never Get Into A Car With A Stranger!’.

I had no idea about all this when MacDuff was ringing up Dafydd, but it might explain why Dafydd thought that he might have known MacDuff from the past or at least thought that it was worth pretending that he knew MacDuff… When Dafydd was giving evidence to Parliamentary committees with regard to his ‘expertise’ (see post ‘Feet In Chains’), I note that Dafydd listed all the ‘clinics’ which he held across the UK, including some in Scotland.

 

Towards the end of his life, Fairbairn came to be seen as totally obnoxious, particularly with regard to his comments about victims of sexual assault, whom he denounced at one point as ‘tauntresses’, receiving the backing of his wife. However, after the old bastard died of drink (cirrhosis of the liver) at the age of 61 in 1995, his wife revealed that he had been ferociously violent, that she had lived in terror of him and one of his favourite past-times had been to stamp on her hands in an attempt to break her fingers. Some years ago a woman came forward who claimed that Fairbairn, who was a friend of her father’s, had molested her when she was a pre-pubescent. She maintained that her father and Fairbairn were part of a paedophile ring and her father had handed her over to Fairbairn. There were the usual ‘how very dare yous’ from people whom it was known had been mates with Fairbairn, including, er, Esther.

Esther had, when younger, been one of Fairbairn’s high profile bedfellows. As with all the molesters to whom Esther is close, not only was it a matter of Esther Not Knowing – just like old Savile then Esther! – but Esther only ever thought that ‘Nicky’ was ‘utterly charming’. How Esther meets so many ‘utterly charming’ men when all anybody else meets when they bump into the same people are revolting old creeps I can’t imagine. Not only that, but the revolting old creeps are Utterly Charming and Know How To Treat A Lady in that pseudo-posh voice of Esther’s and while she gives that insincere look and clutches at that bit between her cleavage and her neck.

Here’s the violent wife-beating maniac with whom Esther had sex and found Utterly Charming:

 

Nicholas Fairbairn married twice. First in 1962 to Elizabeth Mackay, the daughter of the 13th Lord Reay. They divorced in 1979. Elizabeth’s brother was Hugh William Mackay, 14th Lord Reay, Baron Mackay (19 July 1937-10 May 2013), a Conservative member of the Lords. Hugh MacKay was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford. Lord Reay succeeded to the title upon his father’s death in 1963. He sat as an appointed MEP, 1973-79. Lord Reay subsequently was appointed as a Lords whip in 1989 by Thatch. In 1991, he was moved by PM John Major to the DTI as a junior Minister, but he left the Gov’t at the 1992 General Election.

With the passage of the House of Lords Act 1999, Lord Reay lost his automatic right to sit in the Lords. It was OK though because he was one of the 92 elected hereditary peers who remained in the Lords thanks to Miranda’s fudge, most of whom played a key role in concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Lord Reay was the hereditary Clan Chief of Clan Mackay and Lord of Ophemert and Zennewijnen in the Netherlands.

Lord Reay was married twice. His first wife Tessa, (née the Honourable Annabel Terese Fraser), was a daughter of Lord Lovat; Tessa later married Henry Keswick and they feature in my post ‘Running The Country – And All That Jazz’). Lord Reay and Tessa had two sons and one daughter. With his second wife Victoria Isabella, youngest daughter of the late 1st Baron Bruntisfield, Lord Reay had two daughters.

An elderly Lord Reay with Lady Victoria Reay. Yes, she is his wife, not his daughter:

 

Here are extracts from a website which seems to have been created by an admirer of Lord Reay:

Lord Reay was a dapper man who always took pride in his appearance. Although not often in Mackay country, he cut a dashing figure in full highland dress. At official dinners, he wore the kilt with a specially made green jacket to complement the green, blue and black of the Mackay tartan. He attended the Gatherings in Edinburgh in 2000 and 2009. At the former, Lord Reay, with his wife the Lady Victoria, walked down the Royal Mile in the parade in Mackay tartan with a grand cockade in his glengarry. In 2009 he visited the Mackay tent in kilt and glengarry and spoke enthusiastically of the work being done at the Clan Mackay Room at the Strathnaver Museum in Sutherland.

Lord Reay said in a speech: “I have always had soft spot for Edinburgh, the place of my birth and still managing to hold its place as, in my opinion, the most beautiful city in the United Kingdom. I feel honoured to be amongst you. Clansmen, Clanswomen. I ask you to raise your glasses to the Clan Mackay.”

Lord Reay spent much of time between, London, the Netherlands and Lancashire. He was a keen angler and especially enjoyed fishing the Tweed. He was also an excellent shot. Lord Reay was a man of dignity and charm who combined the various disciplines of clan chief, politician and environmentalist with much grace.

 

Lord Reay was not much more Scottish than I am. He just had a really big dressing up box with a tartan theme.


A drappie o’ the real MacKay

 

Lord Hugh Reay was succeeded in the title by his elder son, Aeneas Simon Mackay, Master of Reay (born 20 March 1965), a banker, who married, on 14 January 2010 Mia Ruulio, elder daughter of Markus Ruulio of Helsinki. No doubt this Lord Reay wore tartan at the wedding between two true noble Scots. Lord Reay’s heir is his son the Honourable Alexander Shimi Markus Mackay (born 21 April 2010). Savile Row will be kept in business as a result of orders for expensive tartan suits from Highland chieftains who double up as bankers who live in London and marry women from Scandinavia for many years yet.

 

In 1983 Nicholas Fairbairn married his second wife, Suzanne Mary Wheeler aka Lady Sam Fairbairn, who was for 14 years the chatelaine of the 13th century Fordell Castle in Fife.

Whilst still married to her first husband, Sam first encountered Fairbairn in Edinburgh. Soon after Fairbairn’s death she learned that he had an illegitimate son, conceived during the early days of their marriage. She subsequently sold Fordell Castle and burnt Fairbairn’s wardrobe of clothes-for-dressing-up-as-a-Scotsman. Later Lady Sam was in dispute with Fairbairn’s three daughters from his earlier marriage, whom, on his deathbed, he had cut out of his will. Her response was to give the children, including the “love-child”, £10,000 apiece and their pick of the castle’s contents – and then disappear into hiding. In November 2007 Fordell Castle was sold for £3,850,000.

 

To return to Nicholas Fairbairn’s eminent psychoanalyst dad’s protege. In 1935, aged only 30, Jock Sutherland was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and by this time he was networked with a whole collection of impressively mad Top Doctors and analysts. I would love to blog about them all in detail because they really are splendid, especially for those of us who encountered Dafydd. One only has to read the works of Jock and his mates in a Dafydd voice and the memories of patients screaming – often with laughter – at Dafydd’s insanities and the desperate shifting of goal posts whenever a Top Doc was caught bang to rights come flooding back. Jock’s mentors are historical figures but this lot didn’t go in for evolution. Their ideas were preserved in aspic and Dafydd et al were still regurgitating this ‘classic work’ in the 1990s, I suspect because it was so useful for discrediting witnesses to serious wrongdoing. However, I am going to have to restrict myself to blogging only about the Top Docs most closely linked to the people associated with Dafydd et al.

At the onset of WW II, Jock Sutherland moved to work in a psychiatric unit in Glasgow, expecting a wave of mentally scarred soldiers. In 1941 he briefly joined the RAMC. In 1942, Sutherland joined a team of Top Docs, predominantly from the Tavi, to develop a War Office Selection Board for Officers. Jock played a significant role in the design and methodology of material used by the Selection Board and was a major influence on the group as a whole. It is good to know that someone that mad who later protected Dafydd et al wielded made the decisions as to who became officers. It does however explain a lot in terms of nasty, not very able pieces of work like Dr Dannie Abse, whose elder brother Wilfred was a psychoanalyst who would have known Sutherland et al, becoming Army officers with huge responsibilities either during WW II or after, while they did National Service. Most of the Abse family facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring and colluded with Dafydd and the gang. See post ‘O Jones, O Jones’.

Jock’s work with the crowd from the Tavi resulted in him serving as its Director, 1947-68. By the 1940s, the Tavi had become adept at concealing organised abuse by using psychoanalytic theory to tie themselves and everyone else up in knots, the Tavi having been built on rather rotten foundations from the beginning (see post ‘Thought For The Day’). In 1948, Sutherland decided that the Tavi should play its part in Nye’s new NHS, along with Dannie Abse, Uncle Harry, Julian Tudor Spart and the rest of those who spent their careers providing an umbrella for Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring while they dedicated themselves to The Poor. See previous posts.

Bevan famously said at a Labour Party rally in 1948: “… no amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party… So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin…’

Bevan’s comment inspired the creation of the Vermin Club by angry Conservatives, who attacked Bevan for years for the metaphor. This blog demonstrates that the Vermin Club extended to rather more than those Tories whom had displeased Nye Bevan.

  • Nye Bevan contended that his Welsh mining constituency did not send him to Parliament to “dress up” and thus declined to wear formal attire at Buckingham Palace functions. Presumably, Bevan’s Welsh mining constituency did send him to Parliament to attend Buck House functions, go shopping in Harrods and live a notoriously self-indulgent life in the most expensive part of London.

In 1952 Bevan published ‘In Place of Fear’, “the most widely read socialist book” of the period, according to Anthony Crosland. Crosland, like Nye’s widow Jennie Lee, concealed paedophile gangs with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. See previous posts.

 

From 1968 to 1974, Jock Sutherland worked at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, contributing to the training of young psychiatrists. In 1970, with Professor John Spencer, Sutherland embarked on developing advanced education and training for welfare professionals that integrated psychoanalytic theory. This led in 1972 to the formation of the Scottish Institute of Human Relations, SIHR, which became a sister ‘outpost’ of the Tavistock Clinic in Scotland and was sometimes referred to as the ‘MacTavi’. The SIHR had offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow and was finally dissolved in 2013 after over forty years of operation as a professional body.

Professor Jane Aldgate as a young welfare professional was based in Glasgow and trained/worked with the SIHR, where she learnt some dangerous nonsense.

I do not believe that absolutely everyone involved in analysis is mad and up to no good, I have been friendly with two people who were analysts. Analysis can be fascinating and insightful, but the sheer number of people involved who were/are using it as a cover for abuse is terrifying and one of my analyst friends told me that this was indeed a big problem. It is still not widely discussed in the lay press.

Sutherland published on object relations theory, group therapy and had an extensive private practice; his work in the United States played a significant part in opening up ego psychology to the object relations tradition. Sutherland will have known Wilfred Abse who knew Dafydd and Gwynne the lobotomist and who facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see post O Jones, O Jones), as well as Freud’s pal the Welsh psychiatrist Ernest Jones, who got into trouble when he went a bit too far with female patients and managed to kill his first wife soon after their marriage by chloroform poisoning when he and a friend carried out abdominal surgery on her themselves at her parents’ home in south Wales (see previous posts). Ernest Jones was the father of Mervyn Jones, a friend of Michael Foot and Foot’s biographer (see post ‘The Wind Of No Change’). Sutherland will also have known many of the other Top Docs named on this blog who colluded with Dafydd et al.

Jock Sutherland died in Edinburgh on 14 June 1991, so he was alive and kicking – and he will have been kicking – until after the first police investigation had begun into the possibility of a paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. Jock was one of the many burying the evidence and witnesses.

 

Among the colleagues that Jock worked with and whose careers he fostered, were Harry Guntrip, Charles Rycroft and R.D. Laing. I have discussed Laing previously on this blog; the counter-culture guru famous for his opposition to mainstream psychiatry was responsible for a good deal of patient neglect and abuse himself.

At one point, Dafydd and his pals at the North Wales Hospital became Laingians, as did the people traffickers of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team; as with every other theory that the gang got their paws on, the Laingian phase of those we know and love was put to good use, abusing patients and concealing serious criminality. One man who was, in the words of his family, ‘left to rot’ by Dafydd in Denbigh had a wife who never stopped fighting for her husband. The Top Docs loathed her, absolutely hated her and bolstered the image of her as being nuts and an impossible woman. She was very stressed but when one knew what was happening to her husband her anxiety was understandable. Dafydd the Laingian declared that she was the cause of her husband’s problems and banned her from visiting him. So the one person looking out for this man’s interests while he was banged up in Denbigh invisible to the rest of the world and being mistreated was no longer observing and documenting what was going on… I was told by another lady who’s seriously ill adult son had been abandoned by the ‘services’ that before they finally threw her son in the dustbin, Dr Neil Davies had told this lady that she was the cause of her son’s psychosis. Neil Davies was far more credible and pleasant than Dafydd, but Neil worked with Dafydd and was fully on board with the criminality and the trafficking gang. See previous posts.

Laingian ideas of ‘let us look at who is around this patient and what they are doing to the patient’ are valuable in so far as many patients are indeed mistreated or abused by those close to them; however if the Top Doctors are running a trafficking ring and concealing abuse, Laingian notions mean that it’s party time. Genuinely caring people concerned for the patient can be named as abusers whereas those colluding with the Top Doctors are just So Concerned and Know All About the patient and are the only people who are genuinely well-motivated. Dafydd has a long and glorious history of colluding with abusive family members, I came across examples again and again.

There was a patient at the Hergest Unit who had worked with R.D. Laing and he used to tell me about his Laing-related experiences. Like all the patients at Hergest, this man was neglected and his difficulties were addressed with idiocies such as exercise classes which weren’t exercise classes or Mindfulness sessions which were making Prof Mark Williams famous, as the patients around us committed suicide at a terrifying rate. For years I thought that the negligent fuckwits at Hergest hadn’t realised who this man had been when he was younger, but I’ve recently had a rethink when, looking back, I realised that the key scoundrels eg. Dafydd, Tony Francis, Neil Davies et al ALL kept tabs on well-educated potential whistleblowers and did their best to ensure that they never recovered or returned to professional careers. Most of the Angels won’t have even known who R.D. Laing was, but Francis et al did and they knew that man had the dirt on Laing, which was probably why, when he became ill, he was abandoned and left to live in poverty and isolation in Gwynedd. See previous posts.

I have been told that some patients – including Patient F and me – were considered to be such a threat to those we know and love that everything that we were doing was being observed and noted. Previous posts have described how the senior managers of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust refused to give the Hergest Unit whistleblower a phone for his office to prevent patients contacting him, so F rang BT, told them that he was John Mullen, the CEO of the Trust and ordered a phone for the Hergest whistleblower’s office and it arrived days later. There was no discussion of invoices, or signatures, all F was asked by BT was ‘will this be on the special arrangement Mr Mullen?’ so F said ‘ooh yes please’. When we told Brown, Brown immediately said ‘you’ve uncovered a massive scam’ and pointed out that no way should BT have been distributing phones on the basis of one phone call from John Mullen, that the ‘special arrangement’ was a code for a fiddle and what was almost certainly happening was that NHS staff were charging their personal phone bills to the NHS via the ‘special arrangement’. Everyone knew that Alun Davies, the manager of the Hergest Unit, was reputed to be corrupt and Brown said ‘Alun Davies et al are probably buying cars and carpets and all sorts for themselves and charging it to the Trust’. So then F rang a Mercedes specialist, told them that he was Alun Davies and guess what?? They seemed to know who Alun Davies was… Although F didn’t actually order the Merc, he just ordered the brochures.

Because no Top Docs etc ever confronted us over any of this, I just assumed that the Trust was so chaotic that those we know and love didn’t realise what was going on, although the patients all knew what F had done. Recently I have been asked ‘why do you think that you AND F were arrested a few months after F rang BT???’ Although the serious aggro began in 1994 after we both told the Mental Health Act Commission – the CORRUPT Mental Health Act Commission who’s CEO William Bingley was mates with Dafydd – that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that serious complaints were not being investigated, my informant is correct, we were actually arrested soon after we found out about BT and the Special Arrangement. John Mullen’s name is all over my documents; as CEO he was failing to investigate complaints or even reply to correspondence, even after Brown sent him a letter testifying that Brown had heard Dafydd trying to bribe me. Then the man who had previously tried to kill Brown went looking for Brown again. See previous posts eg. ‘The Banality Of Evil’ and ‘A Solicitor’s Letter From North East Wales MIND’.

The security services had us all under surveillance at the time, so they knew about the Special Arrangement as well. I have also been told that those we know and love were accessing details of our bank accounts and much else besides. All our personal data and Brown’s as well  – because Gov’t corruption was involved – was made available to the paedophiles’ friends.

The PMs at the time were John Major and then Miranda and much of the action was happening in the run-up to the time when the Select Health Committee was preparing to take, or taking, evidence from Experts. The Experts who knew about the chaos in north Wales and in some cases were overseeing it.

 

Jock Sutherland’s mate Harry Guntrip, Henry James Samuel Guntrip (29 May 1901 – 1975) was known for his major contributions to object relations theory and school of Freudian thought. Jock described Harry as ‘one of the psychoanalytic immortals’. Harry was a Fellow of the British Psychological Society and a psychotherapist and lecturer at the Department of Psychiatry, Leeds University. Not only was Leeds University part of Jimmy Savile’s HQ at the time, but William Kerr and Michael Haslam, the two psychiatrists from Yorkshire who, throughout the 1970s and 80s raped and sexually assaulted patients with the full knowledge of their Top Doc and Angel colleagues yet were never stopped (see post ‘All The Ingredients Of A Scandal’), were known to be doing this by senior staff at Leeds University. One Professor at Leeds was outraged about the situation but was told to shut up about it or he’d lose his job. A senior Angel in the region who did complain about Kerr and Haslam was demoted. People at Leeds University also knew about the wider paedophile ring in Yorkshire involving Savile, as did Uncle Harry’s nephews’ dad Ralph, who held a Chair at Leeds University, 1972-78. See previous posts.

Guntrip, being immortal, was a prolific writer and organised, critiqued and synthesised the theories of major psychoanalysts. Although he accepted many of Freud’s theories, Guntrip also advanced his own ideas and criticised Freud. He famously argued that ‘the regressed ego exerts a powerful effect on life’ and he viewed ‘the schizoid sense of emptiness as reflecting the withdrawal of energy from the real world into a world of internal object relations’. Guntrip’s personal symptoms led him to be psychoanalysed by both Ronald Fairbairn and D.W. Winnicott. Although helpful, the therapy did not cure his problem.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

Guntrip worked extensively with schizoid patients who were ‘detached, withdrawn and unable to form meaningful human relations’. He delineated the following nine characteristics of the schizoid personality: introversion, withdrawnness, narcissism, self-sufficiency, a sense of superiority, loss of affect, loneliness, depersonalisation and regression.

Withdrawnness: Only a small portion of schizoid individuals present with a clear and obvious timidity, reluctance, or avoidance of the external world and interpersonal relationships. Many fundamentally schizoid people present with an engaging, interactive personality style. Only Dafydd et al can Tell The Difference. And furthermore when they say no they mean yes.

Such a person can appear to be available, interested, engaged and involved in interacting with others, but he or she may in reality be emotionally withdrawn and sequestered in a safe place in an internal world. And they really meant yes, even though they said no.

The patient’s observable behaviour may not accurately reflect the internal state of their mind. Indeed, when they said no, they meant yes. One should not mistake introversion for indifference, or no for yes and one should not miss identifying the schizoid patient due to misinterpretation of the patient’s defensive, compensatory, engaging interaction with external reality.

Guntrip defines narcissism as “a characteristic that arises out of the predominantly interior life the schizoid lives. His love objects are all inside him and moreover he is greatly identified with them so that his libidinal attachments appear to be in himself”.

David Owen

Guntrip observed that a sense of superiority accompanies self-sufficiency.

David Owen

Guntrip saw ‘loss of affect as inevitable, as the tremendous investment made in the self interferes with the desire and ability to be empathic and sensitive toward another person’s experience. These things often seem secondary to securing one’s own defensive, safe position. The subjective experience is one of loss of affect’. Dafydd diagnosed loss of affect in numerous people, it was one of his favourites. Along with a brief miniskirt and smokey grey stockings, as Dafydd explained to his secretary. Who later fell to her death from a tower block after she left Wales.

Some patients experience loss of affect to such a degree that the insensitivity becomes manifest in the extreme as cynicism, callousness, or even cruelty. The patient appears to have no awareness of how his or her comments or actions affect and hurt other people.

  • Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

Guntrip describes depersonalisation as a loss of a sense of identity and individuality. ‘Depersonalisation is a dissociative defence, often described by the schizoid patient as “tuning out”, “turning off”, or as the experience of a separation between the observing and the participating ego’. Tony Francis was keen on this, but because he never explained what any of it meant, no-one had a clue as to what he was talking about.

Guntrip defined regression as “Representing the fact that the schizoid person at bottom feels overwhelmed by their external world and is in flight from it both inwards and as it were backwards to the safety of the metaphorical womb.” Such a process of regression encompasses two different mechanisms: inward and backwards. Regression inward ‘speaks to the magnitude of the reliance on primitive forms of fantasy and self-containment, often of an autoerotic or even objectless nature’. Regression backwards ‘to the safety of the womb is a unique schizoid phenomenon and represents the most intense form of schizoid defensive withdrawal in an effort to find safety and to avoid destruction by external reality, which has been conflated with the challenging parental models faced by the subject following exit from the womb upon physical birth. The fantasy of regression to the womb is the fantasy of regression to a place of ultimate safety’.

I have never encountered anyone who has even got anywhere near to feeling like this. Perhaps on one occasion one person told Harry Guntrip that they did and he wrote it all down. Probably Jock Sutherland or Nicholas Fairbairn.

Harry published a great deal of psychoanalytic theory as well as lighter tomes, such as: Psychology for Ministers and Social Workers (1949); You and Your Nerves; Mental Pain and the Cure of Souls; Middle Age (with L.J. Tizard).

Harry Guntrip also doubled up as a Congregationalist Minister and a Methodist lay preacher; Guntrip founded a new evangelical movement. The child molester George Thomas was Britain’s most famous Methodist throughout the middle years of the 20th century and in 1959 George Thomas was Vice-President Designate of the World Methodist Conference. Thomas was also a lay preacher who preached in virtually every town in Britain. My post ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’ detailed how Methodists across Wales, where Methodism was a dominant influence throughout the 19th and the first half of the 20th centuries, facilitated and concealed Dafydd’s gang. Harold Wilson’s wife Mary was the daughter of a Congregationalist Minister which helped things along considerably, because it was under Wilson’s Gov’ts that Dafydd’s gang rapidly expanded business. George Thomas and Harold Wilson were friends and George Thomas became Secretary of State for Wales under Wilson as PM. Because Methodism is international, there were links between Methodists in the UK who were concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring and those in other countries and on other continents, including in the US (see post ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’ and ‘The Bay Of Pigs Invasion’). Methodism was also strong in the north of England and although Ronnie Waterhouse’s immediate family were located in north Wales, his father’s family had originated from the north of England and there were many relatives of Waterhouse living in Lancashire and Yorkshire.

 

Another big figure in analysis who was influenced by Ronald Fairbairn and D. Winnicott was Charles Frederick Rycroft (9 September 1914 – 24 May 1998). Rycroft studied medicine at UCL and worked briefly as a psychiatrist at the Maudsley. The Maudsley was full of quite mad Top Docs facilitating abuse even by the time that Dafydd arrived there to ‘train’ before returning to Wales in the mid-1960s and the Maudsley crowd colluded with Dafydd and his gang for the rest of Dafydd’s career. See eg. posts ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ and ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ Dafydd’s boss at the Maudsley, Dr Bob Hobson, facilitated the abuse of children and patients in London and when Hobson relocated to Manchester in 1974, he did exactly the same there. See post ‘The Mentor’. The children’s homes in north Wales took many kids from the West Midlands, Inner London, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Manchester areas.
It was from 1975 onward that the children’s homes in north Wales really filled up as a result of the Children Act 1975, which was the result of lobbying by George Thomas’s friend, the south Wales Labour MP and crooked lawyer Leo Abse, who was given a free reign to lay the groundwork by Jim Callaghan when Callaghan was Home Secretary, 1967-70. There was a delay when the Labour Gov’t were voted out in 1970, but as soon as they were returned in 1974, Dr Death gave Abse a hand by using a Private Member’s Bill to get the Children Act onto the statute books in 1975. The Houghton Committee which led to the drafting of the Act took evidence from Dafydd’s associates; Dr Death personally knew some of the Top Docs who facilitated the ring in north Wales and of course Dr Death knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring. For the details of Abse’s huge scam to ensure that there would be a plentiful supply of children to be placed in the homes which Dafydd’s associates had already opened in north Wales, see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’.
I have mentioned previously that the Baroness of Ely’s dad the Rev Bob Morgan was Labour Leader of South Glamorgan County Council while the Council ignored organised abuse and waved through the huge scam which was the development of Cardiff Bay (see post ‘Corruption Bay Special’) while Nicholas Edwards was Secretary of State for Wales; Old Nick then resigned and re-emerged later as a Director of one of the companies which benefited from the millions of pounds of public money that funded the development of Cardiff Bay. I have only recently found out that the Rev Bob – who was a social worker before he became a clergyman – was encouraged to stand as a local Councillor by one of his churchwardens, who was also the Chairman of the constituency Labour Party for Cardiff West. The Labour MP for Cardiff West at the time was George Thomas. The churchwarden couldn’t have not known that Thomas was molesting kids, everyone around Thomas knew that, people had to keep extracting him from trouble. The Rev Bob was encouraged to go into local politics in time to be elected as a Councillor for Cardiff City Council as well as South Glamorgan County Council in 1974. Which was when George Thomas’s mate Harold Wilson was returned as PM and Leo Abse began beavering away again on the Bill that would result in the Children Act 1975.
The Rev Bob was involved in charidee work with George Thomas; the whole of the medical community in Wales kept quiet about George Thomas assaulting  children and in return George Thomas carried out charidee work and Supported The NHS. The Rev Bob’s daughter the Baroness is married to a Top Doctor from south Wales.
Mark Drakeford, who worked as a social worker in Ely, the Rev Bob’s parish and who also sat on South Glamorgan County Council, now that he has become FM of Wales has just appointed the Baroness as the Welsh Gov’ts Cabinet Minister for International Relations and the Welsh Language.
For most of his career Charles Rycroft had a private psychiatric practice in London. Rycroft was the second son of Sir Richard Rycroft 5th Baronet (1859–1925) and Emily Mary Lowry-Corry. Emily was the granddaughter of the 3rd Lord Belmore. The family seat of the Earl of Belmore is in County Fermanagh. County Fermanagh was the location of one of the estates of the Duke of Westminster. The 5th Duke of Westminster, Robert Grosvenor, lived at the family seat in County Fermanagh and his son Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, the 6th Duke, spent his childhood there. Gerald the 6th Duke later based himself at the family’s estate in Cheshire. Gerald was the President of the City of Chester Conservative Association while Peter Morrison was the constituency MP and Gerald was involved with numerous organisations which colluded with Dafydd et al. Boys from Bryn Estyn were taken to Gerald’s estate for ‘work experience’ and refused to return but wouldn’t explain why. Gerald was a good friend of Carlo. See previous posts for the numerous links between Gerald Grosvenor and the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and St George’s Hospital Medical School.
The Duke of Westminster owns most of Belgravia. Until St George’s Hospital Medical School relocated to Tooting in 1980, St George’s was located at Hyde Park Corner in Knightsbridge and was the local hospital for Belgravia. St George’s was endemically corrupt and had a tradition of getting posh people out of trouble and even played this role with regard to Lord Lucan (see post ‘Yes, There Is Still Green Paint On The Renault…’). St George’s Dept of Psychiatry had colluded with organised abuse for years and years; Dr Desmond Curran seems to have been the person who really got the ball rolling and Curran attracted other Top Docs with the same agenda to St George’s (see post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’). Desmond Curran ‘treated’ Norman Scott when Jeremy had given Norman such a hard time that Norman had a breakdown, many years before Jeremy ended up in the dock in 1979.
Nye Bevan lived in Belgravia when dear old St George’s was at its poshest and Serving The Community. It was not a private hospital; St George’s was part of Nye’s and Uncle Harry’s NHS. The Top Docs within just hated the plebs…
After I began this blog I received an e mail telling me that Peter Morrison had almost certainly been abused as a boy by the 5th Duke of Westminster. The e mail contained information which suggested that whoever wrote it did have knowledge of the people involved and wasn’t just naming a few rich and famous people who’s names they’d seen in the media.
Charles Rycroft grew up in Dummer, Hampshire, where his family owned most of the village and his father was “the local representative of both Church and State”. Charles’s elder brother, Henry Richard Rycroft (1911–1985) served as a Commander in the Royal Navy during WW II and after the war worked at the RNVR training establishment at Hove as an instructor. Commander Rycroft will have known – or at least known of – Lady Juliet’s husband Admiral Sir Alec Bingley and many of the other people in the Royal Navy and RNVR who kept schtum about Lord Louis Mountbatten, the Kincora Boys’ Home, the gay spies in the Admiralty etc, as discussed in my post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’. Gwynne the lobotomist and Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain of St George’s Hospital Medical School both served as ships surgeons in the Royal Navy/RNVR.

Charles Rycroft was educated at Wellington College and then studied at  Trinity College, Cambridge. He became interested in psychoanalysis and on applying to study analysis with Welsh psychiatrist Ernest Jones, he was encouraged by Jones to study medicine. Rycroft studied at UCL and trained at the Maudsley. He underwent analysis firstly with Ella Freeman Sharpe and then after her death with Sylvia Payne. Ella Freeman Sharpe was a leading figure in the early development of psychoanalysis in Britain and was among the most influential of the first British training analysts. Sharpe taught at the Hucknall Pupil Teachers Training College 1904-16, before moving to London to undertake analysis with Edward Glover’s brother James. In 1923 Sharpe became a member of the British Psycho-Analytical Society and had a second analysis, postwar, with Hanns Sachs.

In the 1920s Sharpe, like most of the London analysts, supported the more experienced work of Melanie Klein against the newcomer Anna Freud and Sharpe continued to show Kleinian influence into the early thirties. However, as British analysts began scrapping among themselves, during the early 1940s a series of meetings were held, the ‘controversial discussions’ and a tripartite division of training in the British Psychoanalytical Society emerged after WW II: Kleinians, Anna Fruedians and the Middle Group (later called the Independent Group). Sharpe became increasingly aligned to the Middle Group, of which Ronald Fairbairn, Donald Winnicott and others discussed in this post were also members.

Now for the fun bit. Sharpe argued in her papers ‘on sublimation for a continuous thread between compulsive symptoms indicating penance, and creative sublimations of childhood sadism. Investigating female patients who used artistic performance as a form of identification with the phallus, she also pointed out the problematic aspects of that incorporation in phantasy’.

I have discussed in previous posts how the people traffickers of north Wales not only maintained that they were carrying out cutting edge research – Mindfulness, DBT, research into ‘hearing voices’, into SAD etc – but would mention to the patients wonderful things which were ‘on offer’ to patients, but if ever patients responded by saying that they would be interested in taking up the offer, the ‘therapy’ or ‘intervention’ would either never materialise or if it did, it was in no way what had been described. When I first encountered Tony Francis, because I continually rebuffed his best efforts to discuss sex with me, he told me that I obviously didn’t feel very comfortable with him and if I wanted I could be referred to a ‘female Kleinian therapist’. At the time I had no idea at all that Francis was fully on board with the trafficking gang, but I was very angry that my complaint against Gwynne the lobotomist had not been investigated, that Brown and I were being overtly threatened and I had been on the receiving end of Dr D.G.E. Wood yelling at me to ‘drop it or you will find yourself in trouble’. Francis at that stage had not conducted himself in the same manner – that came later – but he did keep trying to discuss sex and after the Gwyyne and Wood experience I thought this was a little insensitive. What Francis wouldn’t do was discuss what had happened with Gwynne and the threats that Brown and I were receiving from Francis’s colleagues. So I used to chat about politics and culture with Francis instead which is how I found out how many politicians that the gang had personal links with…

I refused the offer of a female Kleinian therapist because I thought that I really did not need a Lady Doctor now refusing to discuss Gwynne and the threats with me and telling me that I had a problem with those in possession of testicles; it was so obvious that would be the next stage. After all, Wood and Francis had already declared that I had a problem with ‘elderly male doctors’, a diagnosis which was further confirmed when I refused to participate in the party with Dafydd. No, I have a problem with perverts who lie about me when I refuse their offers. Gwynne and Dafydd were in that category as well as being elderly male doctors, so the analysis was becoming blurred. The research design was deeply flawed, the young women of north Wales were not being given the option of an elderly male doctor who was not part of a trafficking ring…

When I finally realised that none of them actually knew their arses from their elbows – except for Dr David Healy who was undertaking an admirable battle against Big Pharma and the associated research fraud but didn’t ever intervene on his doorstep although he knew what was happening to us – I used to wonder who the female Kleinian therapist was whom Francis had mentioned in 1985. Because I never saw anyone approaching such a thing throughout the many years that I endured that lot and I don’t know any other patients who did either.

It was probably Dafydd in drag. By saying no to the female Kleinian therapist I missed out on a rich seam of research material and much entertainment but I won’t have missed any meaningful assistance.

Ella Sharpe’s attention to the role of symbolism in life and psychoanalysis has made her appear as a precursor of Jacques Lacan, who would himself pay tribute in Ecrits to “Ella Sharpe and her very relevant remarks…She is far from ordinary in the extent to which she requires the analyst to be familiar with all branches of human knowledge”. Nevertheless, ‘her sense of the concrete, the body and the material behind sublimation and the symbolic differentiates her from the more linguistic elements of the Lacanian turn’.

Jacques Lacan is so impenetrable that there has been serious debate as to whether he was simply satirising the whole field.

Ella’s pal Hanns Sachs, one of the earliest psychoanalysts, was a close personal friend of Freud. Sachs was a Jewish lawyer who attended Freud’s lectures at the University of Vienna and who subsequently spent much of the duration of WW I helping Freud continue to produce psychoanalytic journals. From 1920 onwards Sachs practised analysis in Berlin from 1920 onwards. With the rise of Hitler, Sachs moved to Boston in 1932, but remained in close contact with Freud himself. Ernest Jones considered Sachs his closest friend among the Viennese circle.

Sachs’ first analytic publication in 1912 was on the subject of dreams. Sachs’ later 1920 study on ‘The Community of Daydreams’ ‘explored the role of relieving guilt feelings provided by the sharing of daydreams in children, and of art experiences in adults’.

Sachs’ study of Caligula emphasised the shifting characters of those dominated by fleeting and unstable identifications; ‘his work on the female superego stressed the importance/difficulty of desexualising the superego incorporation of the father’.

I always thought that the biggest problem with Caligula was that he killed people, having been raised in a rather brutal culture, where that sort of thing was the norm. Whatever the truth of the matter, Mary Beard probably knows a lot more about it than Hanns Sachs did.

A caligula sandal. As worn by Adrian Bell actually, he was known for them…

The other day Brown – the real Brown, not the Teddy Bear – quipped that if the paedophiles’ friends find out where I am I’ll have to take up residence in the Equadorian Embassy, along with Julian Assange. They wouldn’t have me though; I’ve grassed up the worst of the Top Docs, the Embassy staff would know that if I was kipping in there, should the Ambassador need emergency medical care it would be a case of ‘ooh, I’m not sure that we’ve got a bed, tch tch, it’s the Tory Cuts, the waiting list is long but ooh now don’t you worry my dear, we’ll look after you….’

Dr Edward Glover, the brother of Ella Sharpe’s analyst James, was a psychoanalyst who first qualified as a Top Doctor; it was James who attracted Edward towards psychoanalysis. Both brothers were analysed in Berlin by Karl Abraham. Edward Glover then settled in London where he became an influential member of the British Psycho-Analytical Society. Edward Glover was close to Ernest Jones.

Edward Glover has had a lasting influence on the combined field of psychotherapy and criminology, as well as psychoanalysis. Glover was co-founder of the Psychopathic Clinic, which was renamed the Portman Clinic in 1937. The Portman Clinic has been responsible for much dangerous fuckwittery, as discussed in previous posts. Glover was also co-founder of the Institute for the Study and Treatment of Delinquency; the joint founder of ‘The British Journal of Criminology’ – he was co-editor until his death – and co-founder of the British Society of Criminology. Glover was one-time Chairman of the medical section of the British Psychological Society.

Criminology is not in quite such a sorry state as social work or the psy disciplines, but it is a mixed bag. The people who become big names in criminology have nearly all colluded with organised crime, including the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Because the Home Office for so many years has been at the heart of this, criminologists receiving Home Office funding really do have filthy hands and Rab Butler’s close very long association with Trinity College, Cambridge certainly assisted Dafydd and the gang. See post ‘Rab, High Table And The Founding Fathers’.

Previous posts eg. ‘Badlands’ discussed the chaos which broke out in UCNW/Bangor University in the early 1990s after the gwerin launched a full-frontal assault on a senior sociologist at UCNW when urgent distractions were required because of that North Wales Police investigation into the possibility of a paedophile ring in the region. Merfyn’s late wife was caught in the cross-fire and spilt many paedophiles’ pints in the process. One of the Professors of Sociology at UCNW at the time was Roy King, who then metamorphosed into a Professor of Criminology with his own  Criminology Unit. Roy King had waved a fond farewell to Bangor by the time that I was working with the sociologists there, but he was remembered by many. I was only ever told the same things about Roy King: that he was a total scumbag and a ferocious bully who destroyed many of the people around him. No-one ever told me that King was colluding with Dafydd’s gang but I worked out that he must have been from some of the activities of former criminology students, some of whom had undertaken projects with sex offenders and were placed in potentially very dangerous situations. One could not have supervised criminology projects, let alone research into sex offenders, in north Wales and not have been colluding with Dafydd’s gang because they ran and still run the whole region. Roy King left Bangor for a Chair at Cambridge… See previous posts.

 

Dr Edward Glover the Big Influence On Criminology studied at Glasgow Medical School. It is reported that as a student he was prominent in socialist politics and was involved in a revolutionary move to propose Keir Hardie as Rector of the university. There followed several years of academic medicine, Glover working first in Glasgow with the Professor of Medicine and Paediatrics and then in pulmonary medicine in London. With the outbreak of WW I Glover was appointed medical superintendent of a sanatorium for the treatment of early chest diseases in Birmingham.

Between 1924 and 1939, Glover published his first book as well as some eighteen articles on psychoanalytic subjects ranging from “Notes on Oral Character” through “The Screening Function of Traumatic Memories” to “A Note on Idealisation”.

Glover once [1931] wrote a very interesting paper in which he investigated the ways in which incomplete or inexact interpretations, and also other psychotherapeutic procedures, influence the patient’s mind…[as] artificial substitute symptoms, which may make the spontaneous symptoms superfluous. Lacan would make use of Glover’s findings to support his exploration of “The function and field of speech and language in psychoanalysis” on more than one occasion: ‘Mr Edward Glover in a remarkable paper…[suggests] not only is every spoken intervention received by the subject in terms of his structure, but the intervention takes on a structuring function in him in proportion to its form’. Thus ‘Glover…finds interpretation everywhere, being unable to stop it anywhere, even in the banality of a medical prescription’.

Glover’s “Lectures on Technique in Psychoanalysis”(1927–28) would seem to have offered a dry, neutral, asceptic classical psychoanalysis. Thus on the question of whether analysis should close with a “cooling-off” period, he followed the classical line ‘that “to the very end we continue the analytic process”, as the English analyst Edward Glover wrote in The Technique of Psychoanalysis, first published in 1928 and revised in 1955. Glover sternly continues, “In the first session we laid down the association rule, and this remains in force to the last minute of the last session 2’.

Similarly on the question of the early “deep interpretation” favoured for example by Klein, Glover argued: ‘Once the analyst departs from sparing, provisional interpretations, he not only disturbs the listening situation but has made it difficult to re-establish it’.

Glover was a ‘combative intellectual personality’ – he conducted personal vendettas against a number of colleagues – who took a ‘principled stand’ on many of the variegated controversies of the first psychoanalytic half-century, promoting a ‘pure Freudianism’.

In the late 1920s, when Freud made something of a minority stand in support of lay analysis, ‘some of the British psychoanalysts, among them Edward Glover and John Rickman, saw no harm in non-medical therapists conducting analysis, provided one kept therapy “sharply divided from diagnosis: the latter must be left to medically qualified persons”‘. Because they of course know best. Even if they are Dafydd or Gwynne.

Glover worked with Ernest Jones in the BMA in obtaining the so-called “Psycho-Analytical Charter” – ‘Edward Glover and myself had for over three years fought at heavy odds against our twenty-five bitter opponents’.

So I wonder how and why Glover and Jones triumphed over the combined forces within the BMA; Top Doctors who are not psychiatrists and analysts are very hostile to them because they know what psychiatrists and analysts are doing.

From 1934 onwards, it was Glover who led the hostility to Melanie Klein within the British Psycho-Analytic Society’, of which Glover was the Scientific Secretary. The hostility lasted for the best part of a decade until the ‘vituperative opposition from Edward Glover and Melitta Scmideberg had vanished when Glover gave up his membership of the British Psycho-analytical Society the 24th January 1944, confirmed the next 1st February’. At that point, Glover declared that ‘The British Psycho-Analytical Society is no longer a Freudian society’. The following year, the fundamental Kleinian position paper by Susan Sutherland Isaacs on “Phantasy” was publicly ‘attacked by Glover (1945)’, in the first volume of The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child, where he described what he called “the Klein System of Child Psychology” as ‘a bio-religious system which depends on faith rather than science…a variant of the doctrine of Original Sin’.

In the following decade, Glover turned his fire from Klein to Jung. In his book, ‘Freud or Jung? (1956) Glover argued (incidentally) for the firm conceptual separation of art and psychopathology: “Whatever its original unconscious aim, the work of art represents a forward urge of the libido seeking to maintain its hold on the world of objects…not the result of a pathological breakdown’.

In the 1960s, Glover aroused the ire of Lacan by way of his attack on Franz Alexander’s concept of the corrective emotional experience: ‘When I read in the Psychoanalytic Quarterly an article like the one by Mr Edward Glover, entitled Freudian or Neo-Freudian, directed entirely against the constructions of Mr Alexander, I sense a sordid smell of stuffiness,…Alexander being counter-attacked in the name of obsolete criteria’.

Edward Glover died in 1972. I have included a bit of background on Edward Glover here because this is someone who influenced and trained scores of professionals who were subsequently responsible for matters such as: removing people’s children from them, detaining people in psychiatric hospitals for years on end and writing Court reports which would determine whether they went to prison, a psychiatric hospital or a high security hospital for the rest of their lives. The word of this lot had people prosecuted or not prosecuted for criminal offences. It was they who dominated the welfare services to such an extent that by the 1970s when a huge pan-European trafficking organisation had developed via the UK’s NHS and welfare state with which they colluded, no-one, no-one at all, felt able to stop them. Many of them were mad and criminal; this was known and quietly acknowledged but they could not be stopped. Even senior academics who dared take them on were threatened into silence or destroyed.

Children in care in north Wales were gang-raped, forced to have sex with animals while they were filmed, taken to mainland Europe and forced to have sex with adults in places like Amsterdam and the south of France and many of them were found dead as young adults after they had told people what had happened to them. Others died in Risley Remand Centre as young as 14 yrs old. The Risley Remand Centre which couldn’t stop kids from being found dead on the hospital wing but did employ a visiting pox doctor. See post ‘Include Me Out’.

The lambs to the slaughter were led to believe that they would be getting this:

Psychoanalysis
Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpeg

What they got in reality was gross abuse facilitated by all those professionals. I know of a 12 year old girl who was trapped in one of the gangs who, when she was reluctant to have sex with a man in his 60s, was told that she was a ‘revolting white slug’. The insults and denigration continued until she decided that she would have sex with him after all. She was someone who later turned up as a student at Bangor University and told Linda Evans, the ‘student counsellor’, what had happened to her at the hands of that gang. Linda Evans’ response ensured that the student didn’t return for any more ‘counselling’ sessions.

But then Linda sat in that counselling room telling witnesses and victims of Dafydd’s gang that she couldn’t see people who were or had been psych patients and then wrote letters to her friend Dr Sadie Francis mentioning the name of the whistleblower and asking Sadie if they could meet for lunch…

Charles Rycroft practised as a psychoanalyst from 1947 but became disillusioned because of the rivalry between the Kleinian and Freudian factions. Rycroft was influenced by Ronald Fairbairn and D.W. Winnicott and also developed his own views.

Like many high profile Top Docs and analysts, Donald Winnicott lived in Hampstead. He was a neighbour of the family of Bronwen Pugh, who later married Lord Astor and found herself at the centre of the Profumo Affair. Bronwen’s dad was Sir Alun Pugh, a judge from west Wales, who was a leading figure in the London Welsh organisations at the time. Bronwen went to boarding school in Dolgellau, when Ioan Bowen Rees’s dad taught in the grammar school in that town. Bronwen and Ioan were very close in age and Ioan went to school in Dolgellau as well. See previous posts for info re Bronwen and Sir Alun.

 

Charles Rycroft was a critic of contemporary psychoanalysis, believing it to be rigid and formulaic. He believed that the ideal of rationality proposed by modern psychiatry alienated the adult from his or her creative inner processes. His work with dream analysis stressed the positive aspects of imagination and thought imagination could be beneficial to psychic development. In 1968 he resigned from the British Psychoanalytical Society, feeling that “the real power in the Society belonged to people of whose values I did not approve…their ways of conducting business and engaging in controversy were entirely alien to me”.

Rycroft was a consultant psychoanalyst at the Tavi, 1956-68 and for a period of time was an Assistant Editor of the ‘International Journal of Psychoanalysis’ and a training analyst with Laing. Rycroft was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 1973.

Rycroft wrote extensively in a wide range of lay publications, including ‘The Observer’, ‘The New York Review of Books’, the ‘New Statesman’ and ‘New Society’. Previous posts have discussed Leslie Gore the Offensive Therapist and Naomi Grunfell the Mad Teacher, whom Brown met via ‘New Statesman’ in the mid-1980s and who caused us to waste much energy, time and money. I was recently told that Leslie and Naomi were both working for the security services and targeted us, what with us being lefties who would not collude with the Top Docs and their trafficking gang. John Allen advertised for staff for the north Wales children’s homes in ‘New Society’. During the 1970s and 80s most Social Services Depts in the UK became infiltrated by organised paedophile networks and they linked up to form a massive trafficking network which then branched out into Europe. By the 1980s it was a major problem and it impacted on mental health social work because psychiatry dutifully diagnosed people who complained as psychotic or maintained that they had really been abused by other people and had named Top Docs or welfare staff as a consequence of ‘transference’ and ‘projection’. Psychoanalytic theory was a gift to abusive professionals. ‘New Society’ was a publication aimed at social workers and the journos and editors were well-aware of the ghastly reality on the ground but there was simply never a word published about any of it, as there was not in the more recent social worker’s journal, ‘Community Care’.

The Indie’s obituary for Charles Rycroft stated that he went to school with the poet Gavin Ewart and they were lifelong friends. Gavin Buchanan Ewart (4 February 1916 – 25 October 1995) studied at Christ’s College, Cambridge after his time at Wellington College. He saw active service as a Royal Artillery Officer during WW II and worked in publishing and with the British Council before becoming an advertising copywriter in 1952. Ewart lived at Kenilworth Court in Putney and a blue plaque at Kenilworth Court commemorates this.

Ewart’s poetry was first printed when he was 17, in Geoffrey Grigson’s New Verse. He followed it up with other works such as Phallus in Wonderland. WW II disrupted Ewart’s development as a poet and he published no further volumes until 1964, although he did write the English lyrics for the “World Song” of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. From 1964 Ewart produced many collections, which included No Fool Like An Old Fool (1976)

  • Dafydd Iwan - Emynau - Music - Sain Records - Music from Wales

and All My Little Ones (1978)

‘The intelligence and casually flamboyant virtuosity with which he framed his often humorous commentaries on human behaviour made his work invariably entertaining and interesting. The irreverent eroticism for which his poetry is noted resulted in W.H. Smith banning of his The Pleasures of the Flesh (1966) from their shops’.

As an editor Ewart produced numerous anthologies, including the Penguin Book of Light Verse (1980). He was the 1991 recipient of the Michael Braude Award for Light Verse. Ewart was Chairman of the Poetry Society, 1978-79. Gavin Ewart knew all the giants of poetry of the era, including Dannie Abse (see post ‘O Jones, O Jones’). He will have known Harold Wilson’s wife Mary who was introduced to Poets by her friend John Betjeman (see post ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’) and Ewart knew Philip Larkin, who worked at Hull University for many years where staff were concealing the abuse ring operating in Yorkshire. Larkin’s mistress of many years Monica Jones worked at Leicester University in the thick of the academics there who concealed the Leicestershire paedophile ring starring Greville Janner, which had links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Monica and her mates were doing everything that they could to obstruct Brown when he was doing his PhD at Leicester University in the late 1980s. See previous posts eg. ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’. Dafydd’s old mentor Bob Hobson doubled up as a poet, as did Dafydd’s mate and umbrella Lady Juliet Bingley who colluded with Dafydd et al for the many years that Lady Juliet held senior roles at MIND.

Because so many middle class socialites style themselves as poets, I didn’t take much notice of Bob Hobson’s and Lady Juliet’s poetic interests until I realised how busy Dr Dannie Abse was in poetry networks, many of whom were as close to Dafydd et al as Dannie was. Dr Cathy Wilson of St George’s Hospital Medical School who was one of those concealing wrongdoing at that institution was a member of an elite literary group in central London and hung out with all the best, including Salman Rushdie and Angela Carter. Of course I do not believe that all these people were molesting kids themselves. My point is that they knew people who were and they did favours for their mates even when those mates were doing things that they should not have been doing. I watched them at work. Dafydd and the gang had access to a vast influential network of people holding senior roles in the Arts and they used that network.

How very dare you? We are Talented and related to, and friends with, even more Talented People!

I remain impressed with how badly Sensitive Poets can conduct themselves and still retain their place in polite society. Ruth Padel is described as ‘one of our national treasures,’ in whose work ‘the journey is the stepping stone to lyrical reflections on the human condition. Padel is known for her explorations through poetry of homelessness, migration and refugees and science; for her involvement in wildlife conservation, Greece and music and for her belief that poetry ‘connects with every area of life’ and ‘has a responsibility to look at the world.’ Padel is Trustee for conservation charidee New Networks for Nature, has served on the Board of the Zoological Society of London (see previous posts for the list of offenders who have also had that honour) and broadcasts for Radio 3 and 4 on poetry, wildlife and music. In 2013 Ruth took up the Chair of Poetry at King’s College, London.

What do I remember Ruth Padel for? Her involvement in the smear campaign against fellow poet Derek Walcott because Ruth Wanted A Job. In 2009, with 297 votes, Padel became the first woman to be elected Oxford Professor of Poetry. She was elected in a media storm, triggered by photocopied pages from a university publication describing sexual harassment charges against her rival Walcott, who withdrew his candidacy. Padel denied connection with them, but commentators alleged her involvement and she resigned, saying she did not wish to do the job under suspicion. Public comment attributed treatment of Padel to a gender war, or misogyny,  a media which unfairly denigrated Padel, “justly held in high regard for her poetry and teaching.” Oxford had “missed out for the worst of reasons on an inspirational teacher; Walcott removed the decision from the electorate by his own choice; Padel should not have been made to pay for his decision to confront neither his accusers nor his past.” On Newsnight Review, poet Simon Armitage, elected to the Oxford Chair in 2016, expressed regret at her resignation. “Ruth’s a good person. I don’t think she should have resigned, she would have been good.”

The good person Padel smeared a rival because she wanted a job. But Padel comes from an impeccable background with regard to doing unscrupulous things in pursuit of personal gain while the world lauds ones goodness. Padel is daughter of psychoanalyst John Hunter Padel and is a great-great-grandchild of Charles Darwin. Her brother is historian Oliver Padel, cousins include prison reformer Una Padel, sculptor Phyllida Barlow, mathematician Martin T. Barlow and biographer Randal Keynes; her uncle is neuroscientist Horace Barlow. Padel was born in Wimpole Street where her great-grandfather Sir Thomas Barlow practised medicine. Geoffrey Chamberlain had a Wimpole Street practice, it’s where he saw the likes of Cilla, the ordinary working class girl who had a lorra lorra love for Liverpool, particularly when she lived in that Buckinghamshire mansion.

Ruth Padel’s Marvellousness continued as she evolved, Darwin-like, into an Incredible Human Being. She attended North London Collegiate School, studied Classics at Lady Margaret Hall Oxford where she sang in Schola Cantorum of Oxford, wrote a PhD on Greek poetry and was the first Bowra Research Fellow at Wadham College, Oxford aka Wadham and Gomorrah, which altered its Statutes for Ruth to accommodate female Fellows. Ruth was among the first women to become Fellows of formerly all-male Oxford colleges. She taught Greek at Oxford and Birkbeck, University of London – Eric Hobsbawm was President of Birkbeck –  taught opera in the Modern Greek Department at Princeton University, has lived extensively in Greece – which just confirms how talented Ruth is –  and studied at the Sorbonne in Paris, where she sang in the Choir of Eglise Saint-Eustache Paris. Ruth’s publishing career began in 1985, while she was teaching Greek at Birkbeck College, with a poetry pamphlet.

My God, I wish that I could start a career like that by writing a pamphlet…

Ruth then left academe and writing pamphlets to support herself – so who was supporting her previously?? – by reviewing and she published her first collection (1990). From 1984 to 2000, Ruth was married to philosopher Myles Burnyeat. In 2013, she rejoined academic life when King’s College London opened their arms to this multi-talented relative of so many of those who had/have links with the many umbrella’s of Dafydd, as Operation Pallial began prosecuting elderly members of Dafydd’s gang who had previously enjoyed life-long full protection from Eric Hobsbawm’s mates in MI5 and as the Macur Review of the Waterhouse Inquiry loomed…

Being a descendent of Darwin, the choral singer, poet and pamphleteer Ruth knows all about Science. Which is why:

‘engaged in relating poetry and science, Padel has written on cell migration for The Scientist, was a judge for the 2012 Wellcome Trust Science Book Prize and the 2005 Aventis Science Prize for the Royal Society, has written poems on genetics and zoology and her book on migration is said to connect micro-level cell migration with macro-level social migration. An interest in combining poetry, science and religion is reflected in poems on genetics debates on poetry and prayer with Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury [who knows about Dafydd et al – Ed], lectures at the Royal College of Surgeons and a residency at the Environment Institute, UCL. Her poems on Charles Darwin (2009) employ Darwin’s writings, letters and journals in an unusual form of biography, addressing his life, family and science. They were received as innovative work by scientists [which scientists would they be? Sarah Jayne Blakemore perhaps? – Ed] and by the literary community as a “new species” of biography in verse, whose emotional centre is the Darwins’ marriage, shaken by divergent religious belief and the death of a daughter. The book’s staging by the Mephisto Stage Company, Ireland, was described as intensifying the musicality of the verse and dramatic interplay between the scientific and the spiritual that permeates this collection. Since Padel is a Darwin descendant, the book was also a family memoir. Her preface illuminates the role of Padel’s grandmother, Nora Barlow, who in editing Darwin’s Autobiography restored a passage in which Darwin said he did not see how anyone could wish the doctrine of hell to be true; this had been deleted by the first editor, Darwin’s son Francis, at his mother’s request. Padel’s poems connected Darwin’s loss of his mother as a child with his passion for collecting; and linked his early scientific writing with his taxidermy teacher in Edinburgh John Edmonstone, a freed slave from Guinea. Ruth inherited the art of stuffing sentient beings from her famous ancestor…

PhD students ploughing through enzyme kinetics: Don’t bother with all that nerdy stuff! Just get yourself born in Wimpole Street and years later, at a time when the Top Docs are being horribly exposed by an upstart who lived in north Wales, you too can be a Better Scientist Than Real Scientists, after publishing a poetry pamphlet. I recommend: ‘I must go down to the sea again to the lonely sea and the sky, I left my shoes and socks there I wonder if they’re dry’ along with ‘Look at all those monkeys jumping in their cageWhy don’t they all go out to work and earn a decent wage?’ You will have to throw shit at a lot of people along the way as well, but Derek Walcott is barely spoken of any more so it’s obviously a winning strategy.

Gavin Ewart died in Oct 1995, so he lived long enough to add to the numerous ‘how very dare yous’ when the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire was mentioned. Ewart also pegged out before the Waterhouse Inquiry was announced – although by early 1995 Ronnie Waterhouse seemed to know that he would be Chairing that Inquiry – so Gavin wasn’t around to name names had he ever felt like doing so. I don’t know the circumstances of Ewart’s death, but Sir Peter Morrison and Bing Spear, the corrupt civil service mandarin who facilitated Dafydd’s dealing of class A drugs, both died in July 1995 within four days of each other; Brown was forced out of his job at Aston University in the same month and Dafydd et al stepped up their efforts in their construction of a case against me as being so phenomenally dangerous that I needed to be incarcerated in a high security psychiatric hospital…

Dafydd ‘retired’ in July 1995, although he didn’t, he retired from NHS work but left clutching the contract for providing ‘substance abuse services’ for north Wales and the general public was told that the North Wales Hospital had closed, but it hadn’t, there were still patients incarcerated out there but no-one was ever told how many and Gwynfryn, the ‘mother and baby unit’, was still open. See previous posts eg. ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’

 

Gavin’s pal Geoffrey Edward Harvey Grigson (2 March 1905-25 November 1985) was a poet, writer, editor, critic, anthologist and naturalist. In the 1930s he was editor of the influential magazine New Verse, and went on to produce 13 collections of his own poetry as well as compiling numerous anthologies, among other published works on subjects including art, travel and the countryside. At various times Grigson was involved in teaching, journalism and broadcasting.

Grigson was born at the vicarage in a village near Looe, Cornwall. His childhood in rural Cornwall had a significant influence on his poetry and writing in later life. As a boy, his love of things of nature (plants, bones and stones) was sparked at the house of family friends at Polperro who were painters and amateur naturalists.

The Top Doctor and psychoanalysts Robin Skynner grew up in Cornwall. Skynner was good friends with John Cleese and co-authored with Cleese. Skynner too fancied himself as a poet. Robin Skynner and his Top Doc wife concealed organised abuse. Cleese fellow performer Graham Chapman was known to be abusing teenaged boys for many years and in the early 1970s adopted a 14 yr old runaway from Liverpool, John Tomiczek, who then lived with Chapman and Chapman’s gay partner. Police inquiries about the nature of Chapman’s relationship with John were brought to an end when Chapman reminded the police that he was a Top Doctor. See previous posts. Chapman had trained at Barts, which employed Dafydd’s mates Professors Anthony Clare and Linford Rees and before that a previous generation who concealed abuse, including Lady Juliet Bingley when she was still a social worker and her father, the surgeon Reginald Vick (see post ‘The Wind Of No Change’). Chapman was personally known to people in Somerset who knew some of what was happening to me at the hands of Dafydd and the gang (see previous posts eg. ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’). Chapman allowed John to do pretty much what he wanted and he, like Chapman, became an alcoholic. Chapman died in Oct 1989; John died ‘from a heart attack’ – like so many of the witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd et al – in 1992, the year in which the North Wales Police closed their investigation into the alleged paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire, stating that there was no evidence of any such thing. Graham Chapman had links to north Wales via his frequent climbing trips to Snowdonia.

Cleese and Chapman were part of the Footlights group of performers who’s network included many people who were keeping quiet about organised abuse, including those like  Top Doc and self-appointed polymath Jonathan Miller – son of child psychiatrist Dr Emanuel Miller – who were called in as reinforcements to help Dafydd et al out when the police investigations began in north Wales (see previous posts).

John Cleese was also a very enthusiastic member of the SDP and they used him to front their party political broadcasts. The Gang Of Four were all fully aware of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s gang. They built their political strategy upon their knowledge of it and yet further collusion. See eg. post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’

 

Geoffrey Grigson was educated at St John’s School, Leatherhead and at St Edmund Hall, Oxford University. After graduating from Oxford, Grigson took a job at the London office of the ‘Yorkshire Post’, from where he moved on to become literary editor of the ‘Morning Post’. He edited New Verse, 1933-39During WW II, Grigson worked in the editorial department of the BBC Monitoring Service near Evesham, Worcestershire and at Bristol. Dr D.G.E. Wood, who was facilitating Dafydd’s gang, grew up in a medical family in Bristol where his father was a Top Doctor and a whole network of Top Docs and others in Bristol protected the gang in north Wales.

In 1946 Grigson was one of the founders of the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London. Among the many people associated with the ICA was the zoologist Dr Desmond Morris, who was Director of the ICA, 1967-68, the year before John Allen took out the lease on the building which was to become the Bryn Alyn Community. Desmond Morris is best known to the general public for his socio-biological theorising which caught the imagination in the 1970s, particularly after Morris wrote his 1967 book ‘The Naked Ape’, although it has rather gone out of fashion now. However, Morris, being a high profile zoologist who undertook his PhD at Oxford, after his first degree at Birmingham University, will have known the zoologists at UCNW who colluded with Dafydd’s gang, particularly as Morris was originally an ethologist (animal behaviourist) and there were a few ethologists at Bangor. Morris specifically studied fish behaviour for his PhD and there was a fish behaviourist at UCNW, Dr Tony Pitcher.

Pitcher was deeply unpopular with his PhD students because he constantly shafted them, except for the girl whom he cohabited with. I was very friendly with one of Pitcher’s PhD students and he knew much about what happened to me at the hands of Dafydd et al. He was the partner of my friend Anne Vernon who was killed by the gang in April 1986. He shared a house with another one of Pitcher’s students, George F. Turner. George was involved in a Serious Incident as a PhD student but he wasn’t kicked out because of Pitcher’s seriously provocative conduct. Imagine my surprise when many, many years later, George returned to Bangor University as a Professor who had been headhunted by Prof Fergus Lowe, just when Brown and I had started publishing about the mental health services. Fungus was so desperate to get George to work at Bangor that a huge salary was negotiated and a job created for George’s partner, which caused much bad feeling on the part of other staff. It was only later that I was told that Fungus wanted George back at Bangor because George was a witness to what had happened to me and of course George knew about Anne as well. Fungus was the Professor of Psychology who had overthrown Dafydd’s influence in the late 1980s and had built his own equally toxic empire on the basis of his knowledge of the criminality of Dafydd et al. Fungus wasn’t as small minded as the gwerin in Bangor University, Fungus knew that Dafydd Iwan wasn’t the big fish, the big fish were those Professors of Paediatrics, Psychiatry and Obs and Gynae in the London Medical Schools who were linked to Dafydd; the Professors that Fungus knew that I’d worked with when I was a medical researcher in London after the gang killed Anne. Fungus knew that I was planning to publish the whole story one day and Fungus was also trying to overthrow Merfyn Jones, the VC of Bangor University because Merfyn was not Of Them and Merfyn had spilt the gang’s pints, as had his wife and one of his close friends. See previous posts eg. ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’.

Desmond Morris has a side-line as a surrealist artist and in the 1950s he produced zoology programmes for both Granada TV and BBC 2. Morris lived in Malta between 1968 and 73, which was the favoured destination for a number of the members of Dafydd’s gang, both for holidays and subsequently retirement. Lady Juliet Bingley had strong links to Malta ever since she and her family had been based there in the 1950s when her husband Sir Alec was Commander of the Mediterranean Fleet (see post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’). Lady Juliet was a personal friend of the former PM of Malta, Dom Mintoff.

From 1973 to 1981, Desmond Morris was a Research Fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford. In 1979 Morris undertook a TV series for Thames TV, The Human Race, followed in 1982 by Man Watching in JapanThe Animals Road Show in 1986 and then several other series. National Life Stories conducted an oral history interview with Desmond Morris in 2015 for its Science and Religion collection held by the British Library.

Dessie concealing the activities of Dafydd and the gang apart, I’d be interested to know how he ended up being the go-to media zoologist in the first place. Morris wasn’t the most famous ethologist academically, his colleague Niko Tinbergen was a much bigger name. Did Dessie get himself on TV in the same way that so many other media-friendly academics and naturalists managed to elbow everyone else out of the way in that very over-crowded market ie. by having knowledge of the dreadful things that were being done in order to conceal the Westminster Paedophile Ring??

Desmond grew up in Wiltshire, where Sir Peter Morrison’s family seat was. Morrison’s father, John Morrison aka Lord Margadale, was the MP for Salisbury for many years and Morrison’s brother Charles was the Tory MP for Devizes, 1964-92.

Dessie: You might have been at the scene of the Morrison’s crimes re Wiltshire, but I note that your lucrative media contracts continued after 1986, although you were rather old hat by then. 1986. The year that Anne was killed. I’ll look forward to the cheque from you Dessie, because my career was wrecked because of your pals in north Wales. Thanks Des!

In July 1952, Desmond Morris married Ramona Baulch; they had one son, Jason. In 1978, Morris was elected Vice-Chairman of Oxford United F.C.

  • David Bellamy, who loves children and even adopted some more in addition to those whom he already had:
  • What Happened To David Bellamy? | Vaccination Information ...
  • Bellamy the Children’s Favourite worked at Durham University, an institution concealing the trafficking gang in the north east which supplied children and staff to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Professor Eric Sunderland arrived from Durham University as Principal of UCNW in 1984, when Dafydd et al were in need of a more tactful and better camouflaged paedophiles’ friend than the confrontational Sir Charles Evans. The autumn term which followed Prof Sunderland’s arrival at UCNW saw a truly dreadful undergrad arrive on the forestry degree at UCNW, Louis Standen. Standen was only offered the place because his mum, Val, was a botanist at Durham who was friends with Bellamy and had contacts at UCNW. Standen moved into our house and caused absolute havoc (see previous posts). I have since been told that Louis was a gift from those we know and love.
  • Many years later Louis received much media coverage after he was arrested during a particularly bizarre anti-nuclear protest; when he appeared in Court Louis gave his occupation as David Bellamy’s chauffeur. Louis’ dad was quite a famous novelist, Michael Standen; Louis’ mum and dad were both Labour Party activists who were mates with Tony Benn and high profile figures in the world of literature and poetry. Michael Standen was also a leading figure in the WEA in the north of England. He died in 2008, I saw his obituary in ‘The Guardian’, but Louis’ mum is still alive. So perhaps she’d like to tell me why she thought that I deserved to be inflicted with the excesses of her dysfunctional son whom it transpired had raped a girl before he ever got as far as UCNW, simply because Brown and I made complaint about the lobotomist at Bangor who was part of the ring with which her family and mates were colluding. I look forward to hearing from you Mrs S. Meanwhile, I expect that you’ll be Marching for Peace or Against Racism or In Support Of The NHS Against The Tory Cuts or one of the many other Causes Close To Your Hearts that I remember your family being Passionate about. By the way, when Louis joined the hunt sabs, his idea of sabbing was to drive his Land Rover very speedily in the direction of hunt supporters in an attempt to hit them. Perhaps your fellow native of Durham who also knows all about the trafficking ring, Bryan Ferry, could employ his fuckwit of a son Otis, a Hunt Master prone to assaulting sabs, to enter a different sort of ring with Louis and we’ll all buy tickets for the Big Match. Louis can scream and swear and get completely out of control in the way that I remember so well and Otis can thrash him with a riding crop.

In 1951 Geoffrey Grigson curated a touring exhibition of drawings and watercolours drawn from the British Council Collection. Later in life Grigson was a noted critic, reviewer (for the ‘New York Review of Books’ in particular) and compiler of numerous poetry anthologies. He wrote on travel, on art (and also had a volatile friendship with the painter John Piper), on the English countryside, and on botany, among other subjects. In 1951, he was General Editor of the 13-volume About Britain series of regional guidebooks published to coincide with the Festival of Britain. After the repression of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, at the initiative of Stephen Spender, Grigson joined a group of British writers and artists who applied for visas to visit dissidents in Hungary. The visas were refused.

Many of those who protested against the repression of the Hungarian Revolution or those on the left who had bitter arguments with their former friends over the issue – it caused rifts in the Communist Party of Great Britain – knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and a few years later were the same people who colluded with Dafydd et al…

Grigson in his later life lived partly in Wiltshire and partly in a village in the Loir-et-Cherdepartement in France. He died in 1985 in Broad Town, Wiltshire, and is buried there in Christ Church Churchyard.

Grigson was the youngest son of Canon William Shuckforth Grigson (1845–1930), the vicar of Pelynt, near Looe. The inscription on Canon Grigson’s slate headstone in Pelynt Churchyard is the work of Eric Gill, 1931.

Eric Gill was a sculptor, typeface designer and printmaker who was associated with the Arts and Crafts Movement. Gill is well-known for his religious views and subject matter. Gill produced sculptures for the stations of the cross in Westminster Cathedral; a carved a statue of the ‘Virgin and Child’ for the west door of the chapel at Marlborough College; The Creation of Adam, three bas-reliefs in stone for the Palace of Nations, the League of Nations building in Geneva. Gill was made a Royal Designer for Industry by the RSA and became a founder-member of the Faculty of Royal Designers for Industry when it was established in 1938. In April 1937, Gill was elected an Associate member of the Royal Academy.

Gill’s only complete work of architecture was St Peter the Apostle Roman Catholic Church in Gorleston, built in 1938–39.

Eric Gill was adamantly opposed to fascism and was one of the few Catholics in Britain to openly support the Spanish Republicans. Gill became a pacifist and helped set up the Catholic peace organisation Pax. Later Gill joined the Peace Pledge Union and supported the British branch of the Fellowship of Reconciliation.

Gill became a Roman Catholic in 1913 and worked primarily for Catholic clients. In 1921 he started a Catholic artists community called The Guild of St Joseph and St Dominic and became a lay member of the Dominican Order.

In recent years Eric Gill has become a controversial figure after it became public in 1989 that his personal diaries revealed that he had several extramarital affairs, incestuous relationships with his two eldest teenage daughters and with his sisters and participated in sexual acts with his dog. In the wake of all that, some people didn’t quite know what to do with the religious art.

 

Geoffrey Grigson and his first wife, Frances, had one daughter, Caroline, a zoologist, who was married to Colin Banks. Banks was a designer who co-founded Banks & Miles, designers and typographers in 1958 with John Miles. Major clients of the partnership included the Consumers’ Association, the Post Office, British Telecom and London Transport.With John Miles, Colin Banks was the Production Editor of ‘Which?’and associated magazines, 1964-93. Banks was President of the International Society of Typographic Designers, 1988-93 and 2000-02. With his second wife, Berta Emma Kunert, Griegson had two children, Anna and Lionel Grigson. Lionel Grigson is a jazz musician, so he probably knew George Melly who was keen on underaged boys. Grigson’s third wife was Jane and their daughter is Sophie Grigson, the cookery writer. The political scientist Giacomo Benedetto is the son of Grigson’s daughter, Anna.

Giacomo Benedetto is a British Italian political scientist and holds a Chair at Royal Holloway, University of London. He previously lectured at Manchester University. Benedetto is an expert in European Union politics and has researched and published extensively on the European Parliament, Euroscepticism and the EU Budget. He has been invited to provide oral evidence on Brexit and the EU budget by the Lords EU financial affairs sub-committee of the select committee on the EU.

 

 

Dr Charles Rycroft was in the Communist Party when he was at Cambridge, where he knew Virginia Woolf’s brother Adrian Stephen; it was Stephen who stimulated Rycroft’s interest in analysis. Charles Rycroft lived until May 1998, by which time Ronnie Waterhouse had heard the evidence from the former residents of the children’s homes in north Wales and Ronnie and the world had called them lying bastards. Charles was There For Dafydd et al for many years, including throughout many of the gang’s attempts to frame me and have me banged up. Charles died soon after one of the attempts to imprison me – along with Patient F – had failed when we were acquitted in Court despite the best efforts of NHS perjurers. See post ‘A Solicitor’s Letter From North East Wales MIND’.

Adrian Stephen and his wife Karin were among the first British psychoanalysts. Stephen was the youngest of four children and the death of his father Leslie Stephen in 1904 resulted in the four siblings moving to Bloomsbury and their house there became the nucleus of the Bloomsbury Set. Stephen was also a half-brother of George and Gerald Duckworth, both of whom Virginia Woolf and her sister Vanessa Bell later accused of sexually abusing them when they were children and teenagers.

George Duckworth’s grandson Anthony Nicholas George Duckworth-Chad of Pynkney Hall, near King’s Lynn, Norfolk, is a landowner and City of London businessman. He is Chairman of the Governing Body of Gresham’s School, Holt, Vice-President of the Anglers’ Conservation Association, Trustee of the Country Land and Business Association Charitable Trust and Trustee of the Rudhams Playing Fields Trust. In 1992, Duckworth-Chad was appointed High Sheriff of Norfolk and serves, or did serve, as Deputy Lieutenant of Norfolk.

Duckworth-Chad’s great-uncle Gerald Duckworth founded the London publishing firm of Duckworth & Co. Duckworth-Chad agreed to become the heir of his great-uncle’s widow with the stipulation that he would add her maiden name, Chad, to his own.

In 1970, Duckworth-Chad married (Elizabeth) Sarah Wake-Walker, a granddaughter of the seventh Earl Spencer. They have three children, James Anthony de L’Etang Duckworth-Chad (born 1972), William George Christopher (1975) and Davina Alice (1978). Duckworth-Chad’s wife, Elizabeth Wake-Walker, was a first cousin of Diana, Princess of Wales and he is also reported to be a close friend of Carlo. His son James was Equerry to Lilibet, 2001-04 and his daughter Davina is a friend of her second cousins William and Harry, both of whom attended her marriage to Tom Barber at Pynkney Hall on 25 September 2004.

 

  • Princess Diana crash: New book claims Queen said ‘someone ...
  • Anyone feel like publishing a book about Lord Thomas Scott Baker, the judge from the Family Court with links to Dafydd and the gang who served as the coroner for the inquests of Di and Dodi, even though he’d never conducted an inquest before (see previous posts)? Well I challenge you to try and get a contract from a publisher for such a book. The nearest anyone can get is the serial ‘Heir of Sorrows’ written by Dame Sylvie Krin, in ‘Private Eye’.

 

Anthony Duckworth-Chad was a cousin of Auberon Waugh, Bron having written for the Eye himself back in the days when it was dominated by Tory public schoolboys – Shrewsbury School, where Sir Charles Evans, Michael Heseltine and many other paedophiles’ friends were educated – Richard Ingrams and John Wells, as well as their pal Candida Lycett Green, the daughter of John Betjeman and who employed Ronnie Waterhouse as a libel reader. Candida, her family and network of friends and colleagues contained numerous people who knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring, including some very posh people. Betjeman was of course big in the Church of England as well as being a friend of Harold Wilson’s wife. See post ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’ for details of the wider network.

 

Adrian Stephen was educated at Westminster School. Among his romantic liaisons was his affair with the artist Duncan Grant, which led to Grant’s introduction to Stephen’s sister Vanessa Bell, with whom he would eventually have a (rather unusual) romance. Adrian attended Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1914 Stephen married Karin Costelloe, by then a Fellow of Newnham College, Cambridge.

Stephen was a conscientious objector during WW I, like many other members of the Bloomsbury Set and, with Costelloe, lived out the war working on a farm in Essex. Early in the war Adrian Stephen was active in the Union of Democratic Control, then later was Honorary Treasurer of the National Council Against Conscription.

Towards the end of WW I, Adrian and Karin became interested in psychoanalysis. They trained after contacting Ernest Jones and were both analysed initially by James Glover; Adrian and Karin qualified in the late 1920s. Adrian completed his analysis with Ella Freeman Sharpe.

Adrian Stephen became deeply involved in anti-Fascist activity in the 1930s. In WW II Stephen became so angered by the Nazis’ brutality and anti-semitism that he abandoned his pacifist stance of the previous war and volunteered to become an army psychoanalyst in 1939, at the age of 57. Active in promoting reforms in the British Psychoanalytical Society, 1942-44, Stephen became Scientific Secretary of the Society (1945–47) and took over the job of Editor of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis from James Strachey in 1946. Adrian Stephen died in 1948, but north Wales bore the brunt of the legacy of his friend and colleague James Strachey, along with Adrian’s family and network.

James Beaumont Strachey (26 September 1887, London – 25 April 1967) was a member of the Middle Group of analysts. Strachey, along with his wife Alix, translated the works of Freud into English and it is this that made Strachey so influential. His influence continued after his death, he was a huge figure in analysis.
James Strachey was the son of Lt-Gen Sir Richard Strachey and Lady (Jane) Strachey. His parents had thirteen children, of whom ten lived to adulthood.

James was educated at Hillbrow prep school in Rugby and at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he took over the rooms used by his older brother Lytton Strachey. At Cambridge, Strachey fell deeply in love with the poet Rupert Brooke, who did not return his affections. He was himself pursued by mountaineer George Mallory, conceding to Mallory’s sexual advances. George Mallory died on Everest in 1924, but his fellow climbers who lived longer influenced the next generation of mountaineers (see post ‘Dr Adrianne Reveley – A Loving Tribute’), which included Top Doctor Sir Charles Evans, the Principal of UCNW (Bangor University), 1958-84, while UCNW facilitated Dafydd’s trafficking gang. Charles Evans’s friend Anne McCandless was another Top Doctor who, like Sir Charles, was rather more interested in mountaineering than she was in being a Top Doctor; Anne McCandless knew about the paedophile/trafficking ring as well, as did many of her colleagues and friends (see post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’).

James Strachey had an affair with economist John Maynard Keynes.

Strachey was a conscientious objector during WW I. He was Assistant Editor of ‘The Spectator’ – the Editor was the father of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis’s wife Amabel – and a member of the Bloomsbury Set. James married Alix Sargant Florence in 1920. Alix was born in Nutley, New Jersey in the US. Her brother, Professor Philip Sargant Florence, became an economist and married the birth control activist Lella Faye Secor. Philip lectured at Cambridge University and then became Professor of Commerce at the University of Birmingham where he remained until his retirement in 1955. By the 1970s, the University of Birmingham housed Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass and was part of the hub of civic corruption in the West Midlands. Philip lived until 1982 to fight on behalf of the network of corruption.

Philip Sargant Florence was a friend of Robert Dudley Best, the British manufacturer deeply involved with the Modern design movement in and immediately after the interwar years. Robert took over Best & Lloyd, his father’s light industrial engineering works in Birmingham, having previously trained as a metal designer at art school in Dusseldorf. Robert Best designed the Bestlite, an iconic Bauhaus-styled desk lamp that remains in production and was used by Winston Churchill in Whitehall. Best was an early apostle of the posture therapist F.M. Alexander of the Alexander technique, campaigned for better art-school education for industrial apprentices, and was a founder of the Common Wealth Party in 1942. Best’s social circle included a group of Birmingham artists and intellectuals associated with Birmingham University.

Previous posts discussed Trevor Tunstall, an architect who worked on the Bull Ring in Birmingham and who’s later years were wrecked by Tony Francis and Dafydd’s gang. Previous posts eg. ‘The Wind Of No Change’ have provided a bit of background on some of those in public life in Birmingham who managed to not notice a great deal.

Robert Best was alive until 1984 to keep the flag of Dafydd et al flying. He mentored the economist Hilde Behrend, known for her research into industrial relations and the motivational differences between workers. Hilde Behrend was born in Berlin to a Jewish family. In 1936 Behrend moved to London and in 1941 she began studying at the LSE, graduating in 1944.

Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law Ralph studied at the LSE just before WW II. During the 1940s and 50s, the LSE hosted people like Professors Richard Titmuss and Brian Able-Smith who designed the post-war British welfare state, including the NHS. See previous posts. Their design served the most disadvantaged citizens very, very poorly, it was no more than a charter for serious abuse and neglect but no-one ever dared admit this and most people still won’t, unless they are on the right and want to use it to justify privatisation.

 

 

After graduating, Hilde taught German and French at a grammar school, before starting work as a research assistant for Philip Sargant Florence. Behrend completed her PhD at Birmingham University, before moving to Edinburgh University in 1954, to take up a post at the new social sciences research centre led by Professor John Macmurray. Hilde remained at Edinburgh for the whole of her academic career.

Behrend’s research focused primarily on labour and industrial relations, in particular the interrelationships between economics and psychology in understanding how people operate at work. She also came up with the ‘blue Monday index’ which measures the difference between Monday’s and Friday’s absence rates and how these voluntary absence varied by types of worker.

Charles Evans (mountaineer) - Wikipedia

Sir Charles Evans – famous mountaineer who was indeed a member of the first team to conquer Everest. He was working as a neurosurgeon on Merseyside at the time and Evans spending far more time exploring the Himalayas than being in the operating theatre was a standing joke. Evans eventually was forced to give up neurosurgery because he had done so little operating he was dangerous. So he was transferred to another surgical speciality instead. Charles continued his adventures up mountains. And with his job as a Top Doctor even though he often wasn’t there. Evans’s friend Anne McCandless had a similarly relaxed attitude to her day job as a Top Doctor.
Another highly paid person on good terms with Sir Charles, who never even pretended to fulfil his NHS contract because he knew that he didn’t have to, no-one was ever going to take any action. Dafydd wasn’t exploring the Himalayas, he was holding ‘private sex therapy clinics’ among other things. Including giving evidence to Parliamentary Committees on matters healthcare (see eg. post ‘Feet In Chains’), while investigations and inquiries were being held into the organised abuse in north Wales which he was facilitating:
Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

 

Hilde pegged out in Jan 2000, one month before the Waterhouse Report was published, so she was around for many years to let us all know how to motivate the labouring classes, while she and her mates took a day off whenever it pleased them because they all had tenured posts in universities which made it nigh on impossible to sack them no matter how seriously they disgraced themselves.

 

Alix Strachey attended Bedales School, as did Dafydd’s mate the corrupt Top Doctor Adrianne Reveley, numerous other Top Docs and alumni who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring and of course Ma’am Darling’s children (see post ‘Dr Adrianne Reveley – A Loving Tribute’). After Bedales, Alix studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and Newnham College, Cambridge.

James and Alix moved to Vienna, where James began a psychoanalysis with Freud, of whom he was a great admirer. Freud asked the couple to translate some of his works into English, and this became their lives’ work. Looking back forty years later at this turning-point, Strachey commented in a ‘disarming passage’ to his fellow analysts on his then qualifications as a psychoanalytic candidate, as compared to modern times: ‘A discreditable academic career with the barest of B.A. degrees, no medical qualifications…no experience of anything except third-rate journalism. The only thing in my favour was that at the age of thirty I wrote a letter out of the blue to Freud, asking him if he would take me on as a student’. James continued by saying that, having spent a couple of years in Vienna, “I got back to London in the summer of 1922, and in October, without any further ado, I was elected an associate member of the [Psycho-Analytical] Society. … A year later, I was made a full member. So there I was, launched on the treatment of patients, with no experience, with no supervision, with nothing to help me but some two years of analysis with Freud”.

It was Freud who decided that “the Stracheys should become members (full) of the Society. … To be sure their conflicts have not been decided, but we need not wait so long, we can only instigate the processes which has to be fed by the factors of life”.

Freud’s enthusiasm in embracing the Stracheys is interesting. Freud certainly did embrace people who weren’t Top Doctors unlike some other analysts who were also Top Doctors themselves, but there must have been a positive stampede in the direction of Freud at the time when the Stracheys approached him. It was the Stracheys whom Freud was keen to have on board and whom he fast-tracked though. The Stracheys of the Bloomsbury Set, a circle choc full of influential, well-connected people yet who were considered by many to be rather disreputable…

James and Alix thus both become practising analysts; James subsequently began publishing his own original articles; and the two of them (in collaboration with Ernest Jones and Joan Riviere) began translating Freud’s works in earnest, as well as writings by a number of other European psychoanalysts. Their translation of Freud’s works remains the standard edition of Freud’s works to this day.

While the Stracheys were instrumental in encouraging Melanie Klein to come to England to pursue her analytic discoveries, both remained loyal to Freud at the same time and stood as part of the Middle Group between the proponents of Melanie Klein and of Anna Freud.

While accepting that “Strachey’s translation was also an act of interpretation and it has not been hard to find spots where he went astray”, the fact remains that “Freud was delighted with the work Strachey succeeded in doing”; whilst even into the 21st century “the German editions have relied on Strachey’s editorial apparatus, which should be a testimony to what he accomplished”.

James is mentioned in the text of Michael Holroyd’s biography of Lytton Strachey and in the introduction to the 1971 Penguin edition and the 1994–95 revised edition. James was the literary executor for his brother Lytton, so Holroyd saw James and Alix frequently over the five years from 1962 that he was researching and writing the first edition (published in 1967–68) of his biography of Lytton.

 

Sir Clough Williams-Ellis of Llanfrothen/ Croesor married Amabel Strachey. The Stracheys are a huge family and many have very similar names so trying to get to grips with the whole network is taking me quite some time. However, they all held influential positions in art/culture/literature/politics, they were on hand to assist each other and in turn they were friends with/sexual partners of/married to numerous other people who held influential positions in the arts, politics etc.

Lytton Strachey was the founder of the Bloomsbury Set and it was Lytton who was famously excessive sexually, although quite a few of Lytton’s friends and relatives worked hard to keep up with Lytton in that particular field. Not so long ago Radio 4 ran a comedy series satirising the Bloomsbury Set, ‘Gloomsbury’ and a friend of mine remarked that ‘Gloomsbury’ was ridiculous and infantile; however another friend who was au fait with what the Bloomsbury Set got up to loved it and maintained that it was spot on in terms of the excesses and petty jealousies and squabbles of a hugely self-indulgent network of people.

Amabel had immediate links to some of the Stracheys with a saner reputation than Lytton; her father John St Loe Strachey ws the Editor of ‘The Spectator’ which is how Amabel got a job writing for that publication and her brother Evelyn John St Loe Strachey aka John Strachey was a Labour MP and Minister in Clement Attlee’s Gov’t. However some of the extended family were involved with the organised abuse of children and vulnerable people and the family’s influence ensured that there were no repercussions, including for their associates in north Wales. Members of the Bloomsbury Set also attended universities famous for recruiting spies during the pre-WW II years who later were outed as double agents, including Cambridge. Previous posts have provided specific details of some examples, including those reaching right into Dafydd’s gang eg. Goronwy Rees, who served as Principal of Aberystwyth University in the 1950s.

The presence of Clough, Bertrand Russell and their friends in south Gwynedd undoubtedly was hugely advantageous to Dafydd and the gang. The original stars of the show in Croesor from the 1950s/60s have virtually all died now, but their children and grandchildren are still with us doing the ‘how very dare you’ bit should anyone try to expose the extent of the fuckwittery…

Patient F who was targeted in a major way by Dafydd et al came from a middle class family in Surrey and spent his young life with artists, rockers and alternative people, some of whom later became famous…

I have only just discovered that the Stracheys began as Somerset nobility before their mycelia found its way into the rest of the UK.

About @ Plas Brondanw

 

Sir Clough studied at the Slade School of Art; as did Alix Strachey and Sir Kyffin Williams, Anglesey’s eminent artist who never married and wasn’t blessed with children.

 

 

One of the Specialist Advisers to the Select Health Committee in 1997-98 was Chris Davies, Director of Somerset Social Services. Not only did Somerset contain a number of people who knew what was happening to me in north Wales at that time along with a group of Tory and Lib Dem MPs who capitalised on it politically eg. Tom King, Paddy Ashdown, John Biffen etc (see previous posts), but there was also a trafficking ring operating in the Bridgwater area with links to Dafydd’s gang. Somerset Social Services was in a very bad way and not long after Chris Davies served as the Specialist Adviser, things began to fall apart and Somerset had to give up any pretensions that it was running a functioning social care or mental health service. I knew that there were major problems in Somerset when Chris was dispensing his advice; I knew of unsuitable people who had been passed to provide paid care for vulnerable people, I knew of Top Doctors who were concealing wrongdoing and abuse, I knew of psych patients who were being abused and neglected and I knew of a child sex offender who seemed to enjoy protection from high places, despite the police being in hot pursuit of him.

 

I need to nominate another person as a member of the Vermin Club, a man who had escaped my attention until someone e mailed me the other day. Introducing Professor Peter Elwood, an epidemiologist of Cardiff University. Peter Elwood goes back many years, he was a colleague of Archie Cochrane who featured in earlier blog posts. Archie Cochrane worked in south Wales when Dafydd’s gang was embryonic and he was a colleague of Professor Kenneth Rawnsley, who held the fort at Cardiff University for decades, reassuring everyone that standards and care in Dafydd’s Denbigh Dungeon were good and that Dafydd et al were providing high quality training for Top Doctors and Angels. See post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ Kenneth also loyally trained numerous mad, abusive Top Docs himself, including Tony Francis. Whenever I become forgetful and compare what Rawnsley said was happening in psychiatry in Wales with what everyone knew was happening and ask myself ‘how did they get away with this?’, I soon remember the words ‘George Thomas’. It explains a great deal. Including this:

Archie Cochrane promoted robust science but for some reason he did not ensure that his junior colleagues followed his recommendations. Rawnsley et al continued to make it up as they went along. Archie also publicised the fact that rigorous analysis had demonstrated quite clearly that in the case of the younger people in a patient population under study, Top Docs were definitely doing something that was killing them. Very wisely, no other Top Doc dared follow up Archie’s surprising finding, although no-one demonstrated that he was wrong on this matter. See previous posts for further details re Archie Cochrane.

A 2016 online article published by Cardiff University boasted of the many achievements of Peter Elwood:

Elwood specialises in preventative medicine; from heart disease to stroke, and recently cancer. Implementing the first set of randomised clinical trials and evidence based medicine has been the backbone of his scientific research. In an extraordinary study, the effects of aspirin on platelets (cells in the blood) and heart disease was investigated in Caerphilly. Pioneering evidence based medicine, a long term study involving over 2,500 men was set up. The study lasted 35 years and provided data on a variety of factors affecting health and disease and was published in the Lancet.

The study was majorly successful and hit the headlines. Elwood was part of the team that found that a low dose of aspirin has beneficial effects for patients whom have had a heart attack or stroke, providing many indicators of health and disease. 

Hasn’t someone just demonstrated that low dose aspirin doesn’t confer such benefits after all??

Going beyond the study of cardiovascular diseases, it has relevance for nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, coining the phrase, ‘better than any pill.’ The study highlight the importance of following a healthy lifestyle: resulting in a 60 per reduced risk of heart disease and stroke. Since the release, this work has attracted much attention in medical science. Prof Elwood led the Medical Research Council in Wales and has contributed immensely to our current understanding of epidemiology and medical practice.

Informing the public on health promotion brings a chance to improve the health of this generation. How to a healthy life is a widely discussed topic in the media, and these studies have provided information on factors which affect a healthy life. Elwood strives to prolong disease free survival. By studying the mechanisms of disease and conducting randomised evidence based trials, it has been possible to explore factors which impact health and disease.

The British Medical Journal featured the study as one of the 50 most quoted medical research articles. The data collected is used by the team, and also collaborating colleagues. To build upon this knowledge, genetic analysis can be carried out and UK BIOBANK has been set up, which aims to ‘improve the health of future generations.’

Elwood continues to work on elucidating important factors of health and disease. Currently, he is working on cancer and dementia. Our society still has questions about epidemiology which ensure research continues.

Clinical practice relies on evidence to advance the study of medicine. Trials utilising the principals of evidence based medicine, which were first introduced by Prof Elwood and colleagues, provide immense understanding of epidemiology.

 

Perhaps Peter could answer a few questions that I’ve had for some time and which if answered will provide immense understanding of the endemic corruption in medicine and in particular the uniting of even very eminent Top Docs in the face of Any Challenge To Dafydd.

Peter, your name appeared as someone who ‘provided helpful advice and support’ to the authors of the paper ‘Gastric Cancer In Gwynedd. Possible Links With Bracken’: O.P. Galpin; C.J. Whitaker, Rh. Whitaker; and J.Y. Kassab, which was published in the ‘British Journal of Cancer’, 1990; 61, pp 737-740.

You will remember that the authors of that paper claimed to have made a massive breakthrough re gastric cancer and that upon publication the paper was the centre of worldwide media attention. Days later, it was quietly admitted that there were ‘flaws’ in the research and no-one mentioned the paper again. As I explained in my post ‘They Think It’s All Over – It Is Now’, the ‘flaws’ were indeed mighty; a sample size of THREE for the control group and not all members of the sample had gastric cancer…

The authors of the paper were associates of Dafydd’s who worked at UCNW and Ysbyty Gwynedd. Some of them were responsible for teaching stats to undergrads and postgrads at UCNW/Bangor University and some of them went on to become leading healthcare researchers and clinical trials leaders in Wales. After they had published this load of cobblers. One of the authors was the father of a Top Doctor at Ysbyty Gwynedd.

As if this wasn’t enough, Sir Richard Doll had ‘advised’ on this heap of manure and had not spotted the ‘flaws’ or that the ‘team’ were a gang of fools closely linked to a gang of paedophiles.

Would you please tell me Peter, why one of the biggest names in epidemiology in the world – Richard Doll – was prepared to be associated with this and why no-one asked him that after the paper was discredited? Can you also explain how this rubbish ever made it through the peer-review process to publication?

Previous blog posts discuss the backgrounds of everyone involved in this sorry affair – except for Peter Elwood, because I couldn’t find out who he was when I was writing those posts – including the editors of the ‘British Journal of Cancer’.

That paper was published and received world wide media attention at the very time that Tony and Sadie Francis had perjured themselves – with the full knowledge of the MDU and their barrister Sir Robert Francis QC (see post ‘The Sordid Role Of Sir Robert Francis QC’) – in an attempt to have me imprisoned. As a result I was forced out of my career in medical research, which had never involved publishing lies and subsequently appeared in a press article, as the subject matter of ‘Scientist In Court’. That’ll have been HONEST scientist in court as a result of perjury, who’d blown the whistle on a whole pyramid of abuse and crime facilitated by Top Doctors…

‘The British Journal of Cancer’ maintained that the original article was submitted in 1988. Is that true Peter? If so, when it was returned for redrafting, why did the bullshit remain in the article? Or was that article hastily concocted and published to coincide with the Scientist Appearing In Court?

Thatch had just been deposed when that journal article appeared and I was on the verge of being carted off in a Black Maria… Remember the Tory leadership contest?? All contenders were concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s part in it. John Major triumphed…

After I left my job at St George’s, the people who helped force me out were caught in a huge research fraud scandal. Including Geoffrey Chamberlain, who was a pal of Sir George Pinker, the Royal Gynaecologist who delivered William and Harry, who ignored Diana’s distress during her pregnancies and who nearly fucked up William’s delivery in a big way. See previous posts.

Diana knew about Sir Peter Morrison and a lot more besides…

 

August 31, 1997, during the Waterhouse Inquiry:

  • Car Crash: Princess Diana Image Car Crash
  • New conspiracy claim in Princess Diana death sparks talk - CNN

 

Yesterday there were reports that the IPPR and Dame Someone Or Other who held senior roles in NHS England has told Theresa that the extra £20 billion that has been vomited up for NHS England on top of the usual dosh Isn’t Enough To Avert A Crisis. I didn’t think that it would be.

I’ve got an idea Theresa. Why don’t you give me an Arts Council grant to form a Wimmin’s Theatre Company and I will tour the UK with my performance of Identifying With The Phallus? It’s what the founders of psychiatry used as the keystone of the whole discipline and I cannot possibly do more damage than they have done. I’ll be a great deal cheaper, I won’t kill witnesses to serious crime or give people soft tissue infections or produce iatrogenic illness. Neither will I run a trafficking gang. It’ll be a Wimmin’s Theatre Company because we all know that Wimmin Share and Don’t Bottle Things Up, but I’m not exclusionary, men will of course be welcome as will intersex people. There is however one man whom I would prefer to give us all a very wide berth: Uncle Harry’s nephew, who worked for the IPPR as did many of his mates…

Uncle Harry’s legacy Ed. Truly a Vermin Club. Not too impressive is it?

O Jones, O Jones

‘O. Jones, O. Jones’ is the title of a 1970 novel by the Welsh Top Doctor and poet Dannie Abse. Among Abse’s many other works was the 1990 collection of poems, ‘Remembrance of Crimes Past: Poems 1986-1989’.  Dannie Abse achieved much greater fame as a poet than he did as a Top Doctor, although he worked as a Top Doctor in a chest clinic for much of his life. Dannie was  the younger brother of Leo Abse, the Labour MP for Pontypool and then Torfaen, 1958-87 and the psychiatrist Wilfred Abse, who emigrated to the US when still quite a young man.

Leo Abse has already featured a great deal on this blog. The Abses were a Jewish family from Cardiff and a great many of the extended family were Top Doctors and lawyers; Leo’s own father Rudolf was a solicitor who owned and managed a small cinema in a slum area of Newport. Leo Abse was a bent lawyer who was a very, very unpleasant man. He was bright and had a lot of energy but he was the George Carman of south Wales in that people feared him and did not tangle with him. Leo Abse was a close friend of George Thomas and boasted of his success in ‘persuading’ people to drop complaints about Thomas’s sex offending by either paying them off – in one case Abse paid a witness to begin a new life in Australia – or threatening to stitch them up and have them imprisoned. Abse also ensured that bad PR re George Thomas did not hit the media. When in 1984 George Thomas was hospitalised with an STI and in despair because he feared that he was about to be exposed, he summoned Abse to the hospital in the middle of the night and Abse arranged for the press to be told that Thomas had ‘waterworks’ trouble. I don’t know which hospital was caring for Thomas, but the Top Docs colluded with Abse’s media management; the whole of the NHS  in Wales were colluding with George Thomas anyway, it was why there was such a cosy relationship between the Top Docs and George Thomas which manifested itself in Thomas’s medical charidee work. See previous posts eg. ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’ and ‘The Great Stink’ for further details of George Thomas and the scale on which Top Docs and others rearranged the furniture in order to ensure that Thomas’s offending, even his rape of a 10 year old boy, never led to charges or even became public.

George Thomas was known to frequent small backstreet independent cinemas for sexual liaisons with young men and boys, whether they were consenting or not.

It was in 1984 that Dr D.G.E. Wood began overtly threatening Brown and me to withdraw our complaint about Gwynne the lobotomist. Gwynne, Dafydd, Wood et al were part of George Thomas’s network, as was Professor William Assher, the Top Doc from Cardiff who, after Professor Oliver Brooke of St George’s Hospital Medical School was jailed for the possession of child porn in Dec 1986, was called upon by the big boys in London to take over as Dean and then Principal of St George’s. Ollie was a key figure in the pan-European paedophile ring which that lot were part of and the distress flares were going up everywhere. The Dean of St George’s in post when Ollie was convicted was deposed and the public were reassured that Ollie was one lone sad git and The Matter Had Been Dealt With. Ollie’s mates were all still at St George’s running the gang and Asscher, Mr Big in south Wales, was recruited to ensure that the gang was able to carry on business as usual in south London.

In April 1986 the gang killed my house-mate Anne.

In 1986 Cherie Booth was working as a barrister in George Carman’s Chambers. Her husband Miranda, a former pupil of Carman’s, had been elected as the Labour MP for Sedgefield in June 1983, when Mary Wynch was getting ever closer to the Master of the Rolls with her legal case against Dafydd and the gang. Sedgefield was a constituency in Durham, which was the location of a trafficking ring in the north east of England with links to Dafydd’s gang and who supplied Dafydd’s gang with staff and children.

It was in 1983 that Dafydd’s mate and umbrella Professor Robert Bluglass wrote the new Mental Health Act to reassure everyone that after Mary Wynch’s case, It Could Never Happen Again. So when I complained about Dafydd doing it all over again in 1986-87, despite Bluglass’s brand new Mental Health Act, it was Bluglass whom the Medical Ombudsman for the Welsh Office – Professor Robert Owen, another mate of Dafydd’s – asked to investigate my complaint. Bluglass failed to investigate most aspects of my complaint and er concealed Dafydd’s criminality. See post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’.

 

Leo Abse knew Greville Janner, the Cardiff-born barrister and Labour MP for Leicester North West and then Leicester West, 1970-97, who was involved with the paedophile gang in the Leicester area, which had links with Dafydd’s gang and was being concealed by the Top Docs as well as many others. Greville’s dad Barnett Janner had preceded Greville as the MP for the constituency. Barnett was a Jewish lawyer who was originally from south Wales and knew the Abse family. See previous posts.

After Brown and I refused to succumb to the threats of the Top Docs, from 1984 onwards a great deal of conspiring behind the scenes went on to nobble our career progress. Professor Stuart Hall and his chums ensured that Brown ended up doing his PhD with the Centre for Mass Communication Research at Leicester University rather than with Hall’s old mates at the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies, Birmingham University. Thus Brown ended up on the manor of Greville which led to much obstruction and many adventures. See post ‘Life In Cold Blood’. I went to live with Brown in Leicester after I finished my MSc at Hammersmith Hospital/Royal Postgraduate Medical School in May 1987. Unbeknown to Brown and me, the Top Doctors at Hammersmith were of course part of the net, so I when I was at Hammersmith, I was offered what seemed at the time a good number with the Cancer Research Campaign at Nottingham University. However the labs were run by Professor Robert Baldwin, whom was known by all senior figures in cancer research to be mistreating staff and running a research fraud racket with an American drug company. See post ‘Oh Lordy, It’s CR UK!’. Because I had been offered the job at Nottingham, I moved into Brown’s house in Leicester, where we were placed under surveillance by MI5 and were targeted by those we know and love…

Just after the General Election of 1987, Dafydd et al had me arrested and charged when they invited me to north Wales on the pretext of discussing my complaint with me. They not only refused to discuss my complaint, they also made statements to the police alleging that I had tried to stab a junior doctor. The case fell apart because Jeff Crowther, a nursing officer from Ysbyty Gwynedd and Sgt Morgan at Bangor Police Station, didn’t tell as many lies as they were required to tell, so I was charged with a public order offence instead – under the legislation introduced by Thatch to criminalise striking miners, one could be prosecuted for pretty much anything – and my solicitor Alwyn Jones commissioned a Court report from Dr James Earp in Leicester (see post ‘An Expert From England’). Who was concealing the crimes of Greville et al and colluded with Dafydd and the gang in north Wales.. Alwyn I have now been told was Of The Gwerin, but he would have been deeply compromised anyway because his wife was employed as a lawyer with Gwynedd County Council. See previous posts.

 

Leo Abse attended Howard Garden’s High School in Cardiff and then the LSE where he studied law, in the late 1930s or early 1940s. Having joined the Labour Party in 1934, Leo clandestinely visited Spain during the closing months of the Spanish Civil War in 1939.

During WW II Leo Abse served in the RAF. He was in Cairo in 1944 when some of the British military personnel stationed there set up a “Forces Parliament” in which they debated the structure of society that they wanted to see in the post-war world. Abse’s left-wing views were fully in tune with the majority opinion among the lower ranks at its meetings, but the existence of the “Parliament” disturbed the senior officers. When Abse moved a motion supporting nationalization of the Bank of England he was arrested and the Forces Parliament was forcibly dissolved.

After the end of the war Abse set up in practice as a solicitor in Cardiff. In 1951 he established his own law firm, Leo Abse & Cohen, which eventually grew to be the biggest in the city. Leo Abse was also elected as Chairman of Cardiff Labour Party for two years from 1951, relinquishing the post when he was elected to Cardiff City Council. Cardiff City Council was riddled with corruption of which George Thomas and the Top Doctors were a part and this remained a serious problem years later, when the tentacles of corruption permeated the National Assembly for Wales. See eg. posts ‘More Than Politics And Local Government’, ‘The Battle Of The Cowshed’ and ‘Criminals Are Getting Away With It’.

Leo Abse and his mates networked among the Jewish community, among the Top Doctors and of course among the legal profession, no matter what their politics. Leo Abse knew Tory barrister Michael Howard, who was Home Secretary, 1993-97. Howard was born Michael Hecht in Gorseinion, Swansea and was the son of Bernat Hecht, who was born in Romania and came to Britain in 1939. Howard’s mother, Hilda (Kershion), lived in Wales from the age of 6 months. Both of Howard’s parents were from Jewish families. It was Michael Howard who as Home Secretary finally ruined Mary Wynch, although Mary had by then won every part of her legal case (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’). In 1975 Michael Howard married the former ‘model’ Sandra Paul who had previously been at the centre of the celebs who were sexually exploiting the kids and young people provided by Dafydd’s gang. Sandra’s first husband was the jazz pianist Robin Douglas-Home, the nephew of former PM Alec Douglas-Home. At the time of his divorce from Sandra, Robin was having a relationship with Lilibet’s sister, Ma’am Darling. Robin later killed himself after suffering from serious depression.

‘Now don’t you worry my dear, we’ll look after you. Unless you are in a position to name names of course. Past bedfellow of Ma’am Darling you say? Ooh how glamorous! Er, do you know I think that there’s a bit of a waiting list for Care at the moment. You’ll be OK though, I can see that…’ ‘Next patient please…’

The Lord Howard of Lympne

Prison works! But not for bent lawyers and Top Doctors running sex abuse gangs obviously, that is why Dafydd et al were never charged, convicted and jailed, although anyone who found themselves making complaints about them was arrested or found dead having ‘committed suicide’. I was repeatedly arrested and charged when Michael Howard was Home Secretary. Those members of Dafydd’s gang who made allegations against me were demonstrated to have perjured themselves but no action was ever taken against any of them, although throughout it all there were various investigations and inquiries underway with regard to a possible ‘VIP paedophile ring’ operating in north Wales/Cheshire.

Mr Howard – can I have my compensation cheque please? Unlike the Bryn Estyn boys who made those scurrilous allegations about those who tried so hard to help them, I am not a ‘drug addict’ and I have never been in prison. I have 10,000 documents demonstrating perjury and conspiracy on the part of the NHS, the police force, the CPS, the judiciary, the criminal justice system, the social services and other people. You owe me a great deal of money Howard, even in terms of the paltry offers made to those who have been the victims of state abuse, believe me, you owe me millions… Cough up you worthless corrupt bastard and when you do, remember all of those who died at the hands of a criminal gang whom you actively assisted. Furthermore tell your ageing dipstick of a wife, the former ‘model’ who tried to resurrect her career in the 1990s by promoting sad clothes for M&S – who have enjoyed a very cosy relationship with the Top Doctors who facilitated Dafydd and the gang –  to make a statement about all those young people who were forced to provide sexual services to predatory celebs and aristos by Dafydd et al.

  • But Sandra’s so glamorous!
  • ‘Ewe know Dr DA tried to help them, ooh he tried ewe know, so many people tried, but…’

    See previous posts for further details of the vile Lord and Lady Howard and the very comfortable lives that they led while the bodies of the gang’s victims littered north Wales. Do they know anything about the deaths of Bing Spear, the corrupt Home Office mandarin who was in cahoots with Dafydd and Sir Peter Morrison, just four days apart in July 1995? See previous posts…

Leo Abse entered the Commons after winning a by-election in 1958, as a result of the then Labour MP for Pontypool, Granville West – who like Abse was a solicitor – being awarded one of the first life peerages in 1958, when Clement Attlee was PM. Unusually for a town in the South Wales valleys at that time, the NUM was not in control of the nomination of West’s successor as Labour candidate, since Pontypool was a centre of the railway industry. Abse won the candidature and then won the seat.

Daniel Granville West, Baron Granville-West established a successful solicitors’ practice, guided by Welsh Baptist principles and became a leading socialist after WW II. Baptised at the Tabernacle English Baptist Church, Monmouthshire, West remained a dedicated member all his life. Prominent in the Labour Party in opposition during the Gaitskell period in the 1950s and early 1960s, he remained ‘committed to law and order in Wales’ – like a friend of Silvio Berlusconi’s who was Tough On Crime And Tough On The Causes Of Crime! – and the nationalisation of the rail industry. Granville was horrified by the legacy of Imperial decline which he blamed for growing unemployment in the valleys.

Granville West was educated at Newbridge Grammar School and studied law at the University College of Wales, which became Cardiff University. Early in his years as a solicitor, West worked in a successful practice in Newbridge and Pontypool, Chivers and Morgan Solicitors and this acted as a financial and legal springboard for his political career. A strong Baptist tradition continued to have a significant presence in the Liberal and Labour parties during the early part of the 20th century. Granville West was an advocate of Nonconformist education as a Sunday School superintendent and in his practice he was the solicitor to Monmouthshire Welsh Baptist Association. West gained political experience between the wars on Aberdarn Urban District Council, 1934-38 and when WW II broke out, Granville West was already a prominent local personage, serving as a Councillor on Monmouthshire County Council, 1939-47. During WW II, West served in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, being promoted to Flight Lieutenant.

After the war ended Granville was demobilised and returned to the legal profession. He was rejoined by partner Emrys Morgan, forming the firm Granville West and Morgan. Encouraged by the Attlee Gov’t to seek a seat in Parliament, West alighted on Pontypool because his solicitors’ practice had taken over Harold Saunders’ practice in 1943, providing a unique opportunity in a safe Labour area.

West was elected as MP for Pontypool in a by-election in July 1946. He was appointed PPS to James Chuter Ede, then Home Secretary under Attlee, in 1950, but the next year Labour lost the General Election.

James Chuter Ede was a school teacher who was active with the NUT after WW II. George Thomas was also a school teacher who was active in the NUT after WW II. James Schuter Ede was the Labour MP for South Shields, 1935-64, on the territory of the ring in the north east of England who by the early 1970s were supplying Dafydd’s gang with staff, including Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth and children.

In 1965, Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth met at Ruskin College; Arnold was a part-time tutor and Howarth a student. Prezza, who ended up as Miranda’s Deputy PM, was a Ruskin student at the same time. See post ‘A Study In Tyranny’. By 1966 Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth were both working at the Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead. Children were abused at Axwell Park. In May 1973 Matt Arnold was appointed Head of Bryn Estyn. Peter Howarth was appointed to the staff of Bryn Estyn in Nov 1973. On 9 June 1994 Matt Arnold died of an ‘unspecified blood disease’. Howarth’s trial for sexually abusing boys in care in north Wales opened at Chester Crown Court on 13 June 1994 and on 8 July 1994 Howarth was found guilty and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. His co-defendant Paul Wilson was cleared on all charges.

The glamorous Sandra’s husband Michael Howard was Home Secretary at the time.

Miranda became Leader of the Labour Party on July 21 1994, the previous Leader John Smith having died at Bart’s on 12 May 1994, after Dafydd’s colleagues there ‘failed to revive’ Smith after a heart attack. Prezza, the former Ruskin student who had been the MP for Hull East since 1970 after gaining a degree at Hull University in 1968 and who originally came from Denbighshire in north Wales, was appointed Deputy Leader of the Labour Party on July 21 1994. A trafficking gang linked with Dafydd et al operated in Yorkshire and the gang had many links with Hull University. As any fule kno, Miranda only appointed Prezza, an Old Labour stalwart, as Deputy PM to placate the old school in the Labour Party. Or at least that was the official explanation for this ignoramus who couldn’t string a coherent sentence together being at the top of Gov’t.

Strange but true for March

No doubt a lot of people were a little surprised when the Fool On The Hull was selected as a Labour Party candidate in the first place, but they’ll need to ask Harold Wilson why that was. The Harold Wilson who was a big pal of Leo Abse’s mate George Thomas.

The Lord Prescott

After that business of Tracy Temple and then the autobiography in which Prezza discussed his eating disorder, it was assumed that his days as anything other than a light entertainment star were over. So imagine my surprise when on 21 Feb 2015 Prezza was appointed as SPAD to Uncle Harry’s nephew, who was at the time the Leader of the Labour Party.

Strange but true for March

Uncle Harry’s nephew’s dad Ralph had been a leading light in the New Left, along with many of those who taught at Ruskin; during the 1940s Ralph had studied at the LSE and he subsequently taught there, alongside so many others who later concealed Dafydd’s crimes and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. In 1972 Ralph was appointed Professor of Politics at the University of Leeds. I was told yesterday that Ralph was one of those leftist academics who assisted Stuart Hall et al in obstructing Brown’s career. See previous posts for more info about Ralph.

Numerous people at Leeds University were concealing Jimmy Savile and the gang in Yorkshire. Jimmy Savile was a visitor to Bryn Estyn. One boy alleged that Savile watched him gang raped. Uncle Harry was a Top Doctor at Guy’s who worked with many of those keeping schtum about Dafydd et al.

James Chuter Ede was closely involved in the drafting of the Butler Education Act and the Criminal Justice Act 1948 and he established the Lynskey Tribunal in 1948 to investigate allegation of corruption among Ministers and civil servants. In 1964 James Chuter Ede left the Commons and was created a life peer as Baron Chuter-Ede, of Epsom in the County of Surrey. Just as the Scourge of Corruption In High Places bagged his peerage, this man was given a job as a consultant psychiatrist at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and was given responsibility for the women’s wing of the institution which at the time had hundreds and hundreds of female patients:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

‘Ewe know he tried so hard to help them but they did keep smoking mari-jew-ana and it wasn’t good for them…’

Dafydd’s boss at Denbigh was Gwynne the lobotomist, who continued carrying out lobotomies on patients long after most other institutions had ceased the practice and after the general public were told that lobotomies were no longer being carried out on patients at Denbigh. Most of those lobotomised at Denbigh were women. Of the medical records from Denbigh that are available, it is clear that the decision to carry out a lobotomy was based on the patient’s behaviour as documented by the records made by Angels. My own records from Denbigh, some of which were compiled by Angels who were employed there as long ago as the 1960s, repeatedly documented that my ‘behaviour’ was a problem, that I was ‘paranoid and aggressive’ and ‘hostile’ to Dafydd. No-one recorded that Dafydd turned up to see me at gone midnight when I was in bed. One Angel did make extensive notes expressing her concern that I had been unlawfully arrested and imprisoned by Dafydd after a ‘deal’ that he had struck with Superintendent Roberts at Bangor Police Station and that she did not want to be part of this. The Angel noted that she was told by Dr Neil Davies that she hadn’t broken the law, he and Dafydd had, all she had to do was to refuse to let me out. That Angel’s notes were ignored by everyone who ‘investigated’ my complaint and I only found out about them myself about five years ago. The Angel is now dead, she died in early middle-age, suddenly and unexpectedly in the care of Ysbyty Glan Clwyd in 2002, just after Dafydd and the gang were trying to have me imprisoned for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’ on the basis of the perjury of some eight NHS staff. The case later collapsed; there was no investigation into the extensive perjury.

Before working in north Wales, Dr Neil Davies had previously worked in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. When I later asked why Dafydd had ever been appointed as my Top Doctor – because I had stated quite clearly that I wanted nothing to do with him – I was told that Tony Francis had ‘referred’ me to him. I was referred to Francis after I made a complaint about Gwynne the lobotomist. Many years later I found that Francis had documented to third parties that I was ‘dangerous’ and ‘very disturbed’ because of the ‘allegations’ that I had made about Gwynne Williams, ‘a deceased doctor’. My allegations were that Gwynne had propositioned me and I made the allegations when he was still alive. Everyone whom I approached, including the GMC, flatly refused to investigate my complaint about Williams, even the part re Williams lying and then rewriting medical records. The Chair of the GMC at the time was Lord John Walton, a psychiatrist and neurologist from Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Tony Francis, Neil Davies and Dafydd all worked in north Wales, at the North Wales Hospital. In the 1980s, if a patient requested a second opinion, they were referred to Dafydd, Tony Francis or Neil Davies.

They were running a sex trafficking gang and all of their colleagues knew it, as did those at the top of the GMC and the BMA.

I am waiting for an explanation British state. You had a great deal to say about Brown and me previously, I am waiting for your comments now. Twelve year old boys gang raped, children filmed while they were forced to have sex with animals…

WELL???

As for ‘ooh there’s a Lady Doctor available now’, the Wimmin were fully on board with this as well, the Lady Doctors, the Angels, the social workers, the housemothers at Bryn Estyn, the Wimmin’s Champs in the Labour Party, except of course for that Angel who objected to Dafydd’s Deal, who was ignored and later died at the hands of her colleagues.

WELL??

‘Ewe know, some of my colleagues would rrrap me on the knuckles for saying this, but if ewe drop that complaint about me, I would only have to have a word with my friend at Liverpool Medical School and I am sure that ewe would be offered a place.’

There were many quips made at the time by my friends and I that Dafydd’s colleagues wouldn’t have rapped him on the knuckles, they’d have had him struck off, but O Jones how naive we were! MI5 listened in to that call in 1987, they knew what Dafydd was doing as indeed did all those colleagues whom Dafydd thought might rap him on the knuckles and Dafydd is still on the Medical Register today. Years later when we began to realise some of what Dafydd was involved with, Patient F used to enjoy himself with suggestions that some of Dafydd’s colleagues would slap him on the buttocks… the bare buttocks…when Dafydd was wearing his baby doll nightie…

MI5 listened to that as well.

The Night of the Hunter

Er – anyone out there still listening in want to comment??? You haven’t done that brilliantly really have you M or C or X or Dame Stella Rimington or whatever you call yourself at the moment? Try TF – for TOTAL FUCKWIT. I don’t care how many of them there were TF, Brown and I could have done better than you lot, in fact we did, we told many people what we thought was going on and everything that we suspected turned out to have been correct. Although we didn’t know about the little boys and the involvement of Carlo, obviously. MI5 need to hurry up with that statement of theirs that they are very sorry…they’ve failed…they are on a journey because they are a learning organisation…

Next time MI5, instead of surrounding me with dipsticks in various disguises to waste my time and energy, please send someone compos mentis in possession of all that money that you owe Brown and me. And I’ll still never forgive you.

Dafydd will be no doubt be settling down with his original of ‘Octopussy’ and a slice of Bara Brith as I write. I’ll be starring in a new Bond film myself soon, ‘From Llangefni with Love…’

 

Glanville West was President of the South Wales and Monmouthshire branch of the Probation Officers Association. It was common knowledge in north Wales in the 1980s and 90s that the Probation Service were on board with Dafydd’s gang, but the Waterhouse Report details the backgrounds of some of the Ancients who were involved with Gwynedd and Social Services while the gang did whatever the pleased and some of the Ancients had worked with the Probation Service decades previously. The career of Geoffrey Parkinson in the Probation Service in Inner London (see post ‘Only One Died’) suggests that there was a substantial problem with corruption in the Probation Service as long ago as the 1950s.

Glanville West also served as Chairman of the Advisory Council on Civil Aviation in Wales. During the Suez Crisis he was strongly in favour of supporting Israel’s stance against Egypt proposed by the Eden Gov’t. In the House, Glanville West persistently asked questions about employment, the levels of unemployment, the jobless statistics and how the valleys might benefit from Development areas. He sought compensation for miners, their tenancies and National Assistance for pensioners.

On 12 January 1937 Glanville West married Vera, daughter of J.Hopkins of Pontypool. They lived in Abersychan, Pontypool and had a son and a daughter.

In 1958 West was one of the first three Labour nominees chosen by Hugh Gaitskell to be created a life peer. Lord Granville-West’s maiden speech on 26 November 1958 tackled the issue of the Welsh language in schools. He was a strongly committed Welshman, passionate about ‘Welshness’ and the rights of countrymen.

As was Dafydd, while he was procuring children to provide sexual services for English High Tories.

  • Christine Keeler was one of many protagonists in Cliveden ...

An advocate of industrial expansion in the South Wales valleys, Glanville-West opposed decline, promoting the cause of railway maintenance to the British Transport Commission. He hoped to attract new industries in the ‘white heat of technology’, having opposed the Beeching cuts. During 1970s industrial decline was accompanied by a shortage of decent housing. Lord Granville-West evolved into a moderniser supporting the enfranchisement of leaseholders to allow more working-class people to aspire to own their own home. Now who made that one of their flagship policies decades later?

The high profile Baptist Baron Granville-West died in Pontypool aged 80, in Sept 1984. In 1971 Dafydd made a speech to the Annual Meeting of the Welsh Baptists’ Union in which he told them that learning Bible verses in Welsh as a child can protect against a serious moral collapse in later life. See post ‘A Serious Moral Collapse’. Penrallt Baptist Church in Bangor was and still is a hot spot for Bangor University staff, Top Doctors and social workers. See previous posts. I know some very nice people who attend Penrallt but in the 1980s there were a great many people in that Church who were working and colluding with Dafydd and the gang and they undoubtedly knew how serious the criminality was.

Here’s an extract from the website of Glanville-West, Chivers and Morgan:

The firm was founded by Harold Saunders in 1904. In 1924, D. Granville West joined this practice to serve his articles. By 1929, D. Granville West had set up a practice on his own account in Newbridge. In 1943 he then took over Harold Saunders’ existing practice in Pontypool. Immediately after the War, Emrys Chivers returned to the firm from serving in the R.A.F., as a partner. We then became known as D. Granville West & Chivers.

Around 1950, D. Francis Dunford joined the practice, forming D. Granville West, Chivers & Dunford. The latter left the firm in 1962 to become a judge and in 1966, Ronald E.Y. (Ron) Morgan returned to the practice as a partner, having trained with us in the 1950s. The practice then gained the name by which it is known today – Granville-West, Chivers & Morgan. The hyphen in Granville-West was added when D. Granville West, who had been the Member of Parliament for Pontypool, became one of the first Life Peers, Baron Granville-West of Pontypool.

The Risca Office was established in 1980, with the Abertillery Office following in 1987. In the same year, Ron Morgan retired from the practice, but continued to practise separately as Chivers & Morgan until his death in 1998.

So Glanville-West’s pal Ron was around until after the Waterhouse Inquiry had heard evidence from the lying criminals of the children’s homes of north Wales to uphold the reputation of a network of old paedophiles who’s mycelia had penetrated all parts of polite society in the UK as well as much of polite society in other parts of the world.

Granville-West, Chivers & Morgan has taken over the practice of G. Edward Williams & Son in Blackwood to further enhance its presence in the Gwent Valleys. Granville-West, Chivers & Morgan has a proud tradition of service to the community. We act free of charge or at greatly reduced rates for a number of charities, churches and other institutions.

So that’s the potted history of Sue, Grabbit and Runn of south Wales.

Leo Abse is remembered for his natty dress sense and of course for the leading role that he played in the decriminalisation of homosexuality. In 1957, the Wolfenden Report had recommended that the law be changed to decriminalise consenting male gay sex, but the Gov’t had taken no action. Abse began to promote a Bill to put Wolfenden’s recommendations into law in February 1962. He kept pressing the issue and, after Humphrey Berkeley, the Tory MP for Lancaster, lost his seat in 1966, Abse became the main sponsor for the legalisation.

Humphrey Berkeley’s father, Reginald was the Liberal MP for Nottingham Central, 1922-24 and a noted playwright. Humphry Berkeley attended Malvern College followed by Pembroke College and was President of both the Cambridge Union Society and Cambridge University Conservative Association in 1948. His studies were interrupted when he was excluded for two years as a result of a practical joke in which he impersonated ‘H. Rochester Sneath’, the Headmaster of a rather odd public school, and wrote hoax letters to public figures. Berkeley knew Rab Butler, who arranged a job for him at Conservative Central Office during this time; Butler also advised Humphrey to keep the hoax letters and their replies safely, and publish them a quarter of a century later (the ‘Rochester Sneath letters’ were duly published in 1974).

Berkeley established his own PR company and became Head of Publicity and PR for a group of civil engineering companies. As a strong supporter of European union, Berkeley was Director-General of the United Kingdom Council of the European Movement, 1956-1957. In 1959, he was elected as the Tory MP for Lancaster.

Berkeley was a strong internationalist who supported the work of the UN; his father had supported the League of Nations. He served on the Parliamentary Assembly of the Western European Union and the Council of Europe from 1963. Berkeley was a member of the Howard League for Penal Reform and from 1965 the honorary Treasurer. That year he also drew up the new rules for election of the Leader of the Conservative Party. They might have been the rules under which Ted Heath was elected Leader in July 1965…

In 1965, Berkeley introduced a Bill to legalise male homosexual relations along the lines of the Wolfenden Report. According to a 2007 article published in ‘The Observer’, Berkeley was well known to his colleagues as a homosexual and not much liked. His Bill was given a second reading on 11 February 1966, but fell when Parliament was dissolved soon after. Unexpectedly, Berkeley lost his seat in 1966 and ascribed his defeat to the unpopularity of his Bill on homosexuality.

Out of Parliament, Berkeley took a job as Chairman of the UNA (United Nations Association). In this capacity he employed Jeffrey Archer to organise the UNA’s flag day collection. Despite barely increasing the previous year’s total, Archer was promoted to organise a dinner at 10 Downing Street, which raised over £200,000. Berkeley would later accuse Archer of having made false expenses claims whilst he worked for the UNA.

The former Deputy Principal of Bangor Normal College was an enthusiastic member of the UNA and was also involved in penal reform. Her family were leading Liberals in Wales and she personally knew Lady Megan Lloyd George. Just after I finished my PhD, this lady and her colleagues in the UNA organised a discussion day on the Dangers Of Drugs. The keynote speaker was Dafydd. Dafydd was scheduled to speak in one of the lecture theatres at Bangor University and I raised my concerns with the University authorities about the presence of Dafydd on the premises because of the misrepresentation of Dafydd’s position and experience on the UNA promotional material. The event was eventually cancelled by the UNA, but not before I received an e mail from a man called Tegai, who was a member of the UNA branch, which contained information about me which was not known to anyone in Bangor University and could only have come from Dafydd. It wasn’t anything horrifically sensitive which was why Tegai will have made the mistake; he had no idea that I would have known that the info could only have come from one person…

I am sure that dear old Dafydd told Tegai and co many more Interesting Facts about me which Tegai didn’t mention…

I’ve been told that the business of Dafydd’s proposed guest appearance under the umbrella of the UNA  on that occasion was a team effort on the part of the gwerin. There’s a post coming soon in which you’ll all be named! Please don’t panic gwerin, I’m not Of You so I won’t be blogging the info that I was given about you under conditions of confidentiality, even if you used confidential information about me. Or indeed simply made up a pack of lies. Are you enjoying your coating of green slime? At least people will be able to see you coming in future, it’s certainly never going to wash off. As for that comment re what you were all going to do to the VC of Bangor University Merfyn Jones once his wife had died… How Lowe can you get? Well-dressed men? You haven’t got a clue, you might as well have all taken a leaf out of the book of Dr Duckula Morris and dressed in nylon slacks. You probably all agree with her that ‘Althusser is just a load of old rubbish really’.

In 1968 Humphrey had resigned from the Conservative Party, largely in opposition to its stance on Vietnam. In 1970, Humphrey joined the Labour Party and stood unsuccessfully as a Labour candidate in 1974. He then spent time working as a roving ambassador of the now defunct Republic of Transkei, until he was abducted one night in February 1979 while dining at the Umtata Holiday Inn, and assaulted on the side of a road, put into the boot of a car and dumped over the border at Kei Bridge.

Humphrey Berkeley found his true home in 1981 when he joined Dr Death in the SDP. He fought Southend East for them in 1987. In 1988 with the SDP splitting over whether to merge with the Liberals, Humphrey rejoined Labour.

 

Although with the Labour landslide of 1966 there was a majority for Leo Abse’s Bill to decriminalise homosexuality, it was still vulnerable but Abse persuaded Woy Jenkins to give the measure Gov’t time, which eventually saw the Bill through onto the statute book. Abse knew that Woy was a bisexual swinger who was colluding with Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring and may have been part of it himself.

In 1968 Abse was appointed to a Home Office Advisory Committee on the penal system. He was elected Chairman of the group of Welsh Labour MPs in 1971. Abse was chosen as Chairman of a Select Committee on abortion, 1975-77. His report advocated restrictions on abortion, including a lowering of the time limit within which abortion was legal from 28 weeks. Abse fought in the House of Commons for the enactment of his Committee’s recommendations and continued the fight in 1980 when the Conservative MP John Corrie proposed a Bill along similar lines; Abse refused to compromise on a limit of 24 weeks.

Abse was one of the ‘Gang Of Six’ group of Welsh Labour MPs who were opponents of devolution when it was proposed in the late 1970s. Another member of the group was the Windbag. There was a great deal of enmity between these MPs and the pro-devolution MPs. See post ‘News From Sicily’. One of the reasons why Abse opposed devolution was that he thought that some in Wales, whom he called “fanatics”, wanted to use it to promote the use of the Welsh language. George Thomas also had a major problem with anyone who dared speak Welsh. Although their mate Dafydd is first language Welsh and his minion Meri Huws was Chair of Cymdeithas, then Chair of the Welsh Language Board and is now the Welsh Language Commissioner.

# No fucking principles at all. Just a gang of paedophiles.

Abse was briefly Chairman of the Welsh Affairs Select Committee when it was first set up, but resigned in November 1981. Abse added to his reputation for taking maverick stances by strongly urging that British forces be withdrawn from N Ireland. He opposed nuclear power and weapons and criticised Thatch for insisting that Argentina unconditionally surrender over the Falklands. Abse supported British membership of the European Communities. His support for liberal divorce laws led him to propose a new ‘child-centred’ divorce reform in the early 1980s; the Bill was piloted by Martin Stevens, Conservative MP for Fulham.

What has received rather less publicity than the noble hero Leo Abse fighting for gay rights and divorce law reform is Abse virtual single-handedly achieving the Children Act 1975, which resulted in hundreds of kids in care being placed in children’s homes in north Wales. Abse began preparing the ground for the Children’s Act in the late 1960s, just as John Allen took out the lease on the building which became the Bryn Alyn Community. Abse wined and dined with Jim Callaghan, the then Home Secretary and Callaghan’s wife Audrey, who were both colluding with organised child abuse, including that carried out by Abse’s pal George Thomas. It was as a result of Abse’s efforts that the Houghton Committee was set up to ‘review’ matters re kids who were not cared for by their families. The Houghton Committee took evidence from Dafydd’s friends and colleagues and on the basis of this recommended a change in the law re kids in care. Because Labour were out of office between 1970 and 1974, Abse was delayed a little with regard to successfully changing the law, but once Labour was elected in 1974, Dr Death very kindly sponsored a Private Member’s Bill at old Abse’s request and the Children Act 1975 came into being. See post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’ for further details.

The kids who were placed in the hands of a gang of paedophiles as a result of the Children Act 1975 were dependent upon the Welsh Office to ensure that standards and care in the children’s homes were acceptable. The Waterhouse Report admits that there was a total dereliction of duty on the part of the Welsh Office with regard to this; the Welsh Office failed to regularly inspect most of the children’s homes in north Wales, even when staff were convicted of assaults on children and the most serious complaints were made. The Welsh Office became responsible for the health and social services in Wales when George Thomas was Secretary of State for Wales, 1968-70.

That is why this is categorised as serious ORGANISED crime…

John Allen took the lease out on the building which became the Bryn Alyn Community in 1968, which was when Leo Abse got busy with children’s legislation.

Carlo became Prince of Wales in 1969. George Thomas was a big fan of the Royals Gawd Bless ‘Em and although Thomas was no longer Secretary of State at the time of the Investiture, it was Thomas who organised the song and dance that accompanied it.

  • Prince Charles Investiture July 1969 Investiture of Prince ...
  • Investiture Of H. R. H. Prince Charles Royalty

The British state were so grateful that Carlo wasn’t blown sky high by Welsh Nash – although there was an attempt to do that – that the Top Cop who organised the policing, Sir Philip Meyers, was subsequently rewarded with the post of Chief Constable of North Wales, 1974-82. Myers presided over a deeply corrupt force who colluded with the organised abuse and criminality of Dafydd’s gang. After this triumph Myers then served as HM Inspector of Constabulary. See previous posts eg. ‘Top Of The Cops’.

One of the men who was involved in the plan to bomb the Investiture was banged up in Denbigh. He subsequently became friends with Dafydd and in the 1990s made TV appearances calling himself Rev, stating that Dafydd was the only person who knew how to deal with the Drugs Crisis In North Wales and that under no conditions should the North Wales Hospital Denbigh be closed because ‘Welsh boys and girls are going to prison in England’ for want of a hospital bed. Indeed, Welsh boys and girls were killing themselves in prisons in England because Dafydd et al had fitted them up, but the Rev, who wasn’t a Rev at all although he did acquire a dog collar which he wore on TV, didn’t mention that. Neither did the Rev mention that most of Dafydd’s ‘substance abuse patients’ were English men and women whom Dafydd had positively invited to north Wales from big English cities to buy drugs off of him (see eg. post ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’).

The Rev’s daughter subsequently qualified as a social worker from Coleg Menai in approx 2004, although two members of Coleg Menai staff were so concerned at her false allegations and lies about being a social worker and demands to have people arrested and sectioned when she was a student that they declared that they would prevent her from qualifying. Their concerns were ignored on the grounds that the Rev’s daughter was a Welsh speaker and there is a shortage of Welsh speaking social workers. The Rev’s daughter became a social worker. Top Doctor Graham Thomas, a leading light in the BMA in Wales, admitted to me that he knew about the problems that the Rev’s daughter was causing in her capacity as a social worker what with her penchant for having innocent people arrested and sectioned.

# It’s the gang again.

The person who carried the bomb which was designed to blow Carlo to smithereens was also Referred to Dafydd and she later had her newborn baby unlawfully abducted by the staff of St David’s Laundry. I made friends with her in 2000 and Christ were there fireworks from the gwerin. She was found dead in her house not long afterwards when the gang were in the process of fitting me up for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’.

Strange but true for March

 

# Yes it’s them again.

Oh just deal with them someone. It’s a job for TF if he can only get his arse in gear and stop helping Dafydd.

Leo Abse wrote a number of books following retirement which drew very heavily on psychoanalysis. His volume Margaret, Daughter of Beatrice (1989), is a “psycho-biography” of Margaret Thatcher. In The Man Behind the Smile: Tony Blair and the Politics of Perversion (1996), Abse highlighted some of the aspects of Miranda that were later to be cited by Miranda’s opponents on the left. In Fellatio, Masochism, Politics and Love (1997), Abse drew attention to the fact that fellatio had been unspoken of a generation before but had since come to be seen as an essential part of casual sexual relationships. He analysed the tendency for men to engage in risky behaviour by placing their trust in women whom they barely knew and linked it to political developments.

Abse does make some interesting observations in his books – he argues convincingly that Thatch was substantially influenced in her values and politics by her grandmother with whom Thatch and her family lived for much of Thatch’s youth, something that no-one else really paid attention to – but his writing is at the same time terrifying. Abse is clearly a man who excels at using discredited psychoanalytic theory to excuse his own very worrying sexual interest in children as well as many other unpleasant aspects of his character and to analyse the most benign actions of other people in order to smear them. See post ‘A Peer, More Top Docs And News Round Up’. As I read Abse’s work I was reminded of some of the ‘medical records’ that Dafydd and Gwynne wrote about me. It was strikingly similar material.

Leo Abse has been investigated for historical abuse.

After Abse retired from the Commons his nomination for a seat in the House of Lords was vetoed by Margaret Thatcher. I have no idea why, she should have been very grateful to him because Abse’s involvement in the Westminster Paedophile Ring was one of the reasons why it didn’t all blow up in Thatch’s face.

A bust of Abse was unveiled at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff on 22 October 2009. The sculpture was funded by the firm of solicitors he founded, Leo Abse and Cohen and was made by Abse’s second cousin, the sculptor, Luke Shepherd.

Luke Shepherd’s website is currently advertising the work that he does re the training of surgeons. Luke holds courses for Top Doctors at Marylebone Road and in Devon. The ‘International Journal of Surgery’ published a paper by Luke which Luke publicises on his website. Luke’s website contains many other gems. He spent the first part of his life in south Wales but relocated to Dartmoor, where I think he still is. Luke has been commissioned to sculpt busts of Old Nick Edwards, Rhodri Morgan and George Thomas, as people whom Wales wishes to remember. Surely a double bust of Dafydd and Meri will soon appear in the Senedd? Luke has also created sculptures of Shiva, the Buddha and that other well-known deity, Billy Connolly. Luke set up a Tai Chi School in Exeter. There are ripe pickings in the Exeter region, because there’s a lot of Spiritual people in Devon these days, rather than farmers. Exeter University was one of the first institutions to collaborate with Professor Mark Williams’s Mindfulness fraud. Mark Williams is a former colleague of Dafydd’s (see post ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot’).

Luke’s website boasts of his links with the Welsh Arts Council and the Saatchi Gallery.

 

When Leo Abse stood down from the Commons, his seat was succeeded by Paul Murphy. Murphy was Secretary of State for Wales, 1999-02 and 2008-09 and it was in that capacity Murphy took receipt of the Waterhouse Report on 30 Sept 1999. When the Waterhouse Report was published on 15 Feb 2000, Murphy stated that he was delighted to be reassured that there was no VIP paedophile ring in north Wales, never had been and that the matter had been subjected to an exhaustive, transparent investigation.

Before becoming an MP, Paul Murphy had been a Torfaen Councillor – he was elected to Torfaen Council in 1973 – and knew Leo Abse well. Paul Murphy is a committed Roman Catholic and a Bachelor who has not been blessed with children himself. See previous posts.

 

Leo Abse married Marjorie Davies in 1955. They had two children: Tobias, who is a Marxist historian and Bathsheba. Marjorie died in 1996. Abse’s second marriage was to Ania Czepulkowska, in 2000, when Abse was 83 and Czepulkowska 33. Abse died on 19 August 2008. According to a newspaper report, he left his £1.2m estate to his second wife, with no financial provision for his children or grandchildren. Media interviews with Ania suggested that she was rather vulnerable when she met the elderly predator whom she later married and that Abse dominated her. Although she did bag all the dosh. See previous posts.

Dr. Tobias Abse was a history lecturer at Goldsmiths College, London University, 1994-16. Toby Abse has written extensively about the rise of the Fascist Right in Italy prior to WW II. He has been a member of the Socialist Alliance National Executive, the Alliance for Green Socialism National Committee, the Socialist History Society committee and the ‘Revolutionary History’ editorial board and is a regular contributor to UK socialist newspapers and magazines. Toby was educated at William Ellis School, Highgate and Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where he graduated in 1978. Whether Toby was on board with his dad I don’t know, he might have hated the old git and there was probably a very big scrap after the Last Will and Testament was read.

 

Leo’s brother Dannie’s autobiography ‘A Poet In The Family’ describes how one day in 1958 as a Nice Young Doctor, Dannie met up with the newly elected MP for Pontypool in London, his brother Leo. My how they marvelled at what the two boys from Cardiff had become!

Dannie Abse was born in Cardiff and attended Marlborough Road Primary School, where George Thomas was his teacher. In his autobiography Dannie remarked that George Thomas, despite being a high profile Methodist, ‘favoured’ Jewish children although Dannie does not suggest why that might have been. The Abse family were proud of their Jewishness but certainly had plenty of friends and contacts among other communities. Not only were they pals with George the Methodist, but Dannie then went to St Illtyd’s College, a Roman Catholic School in Cardiff and made lifelong contacts there. Paul Flynn, the Labour MP for Newport West since 1987, also went to St Illtyd’s. Paul Flynn stood as the Labour candidate for Denbigh in Oct 1974 and in the 1990s he appeared on ‘The Kane Debates’ on TV with Dafydd. Paul Flynn did contradict the rubbish that Dafydd was spouting about reefer madness but Paul Flynn has never spoken a word about Dafydd’s far more serious crimes. See previous posts for more on Paul Flynn.

Dannie Abse studied medicine. Dannie had no interest in this but at the age of 13 his older brother Wilfred, a Top Doctor and psychiatrist, ordered Dannie to do medicine and Wilfred put Dannie’s name down for Westminster Hospital Medical School, which was where Wilfred had trained. Before ‘walking the wards’ at Westminster ie. undertaking the clinical part of his training, Dannie undertook pre-clinical studies at the Welsh National School of Medicine in Cardiff and then at King’s College, London.

By Dannie’s own account, he didn’t do that well academically as a medical student and he couldn’t cope at all with pathology cases and the gory bits. However he grit his teeth – although at one point he planned to leave medicine, but his family, particularly Leo, pressurised him into remaining partly by reminding Dannie how much it had cost his father to keep him in London studying – and he qualified. During his years as a medical student, what Dannie did do a lot of was to write poetry and he found considerable success in the field.

Dannie might not have been a hot shot as a medical scientist, but he did what virtually all Top Doctors do at medical school, he made influential friends and contacts. Dannie made even more influential friends and contacts through his poetry and writing. Dannie also joined the Welsh Society at King’s College.

As a student at Westminster, Dannie was on the firm of Sir Adolphe Abrahams, who is considered to be the founder of British sports science. Abrahams was born in Cape Town in 1883, the son of Isaac and Esther Abrahams. He was educated at Bedford Modern School, 1891-99, at Bedford School and at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. Abrahams was the medical officer in charge of the British Olympic teams, 1912-48. He was also President of the British Association of Sports and Medicine and a fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine.

The Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives Of The Fellows’ Online supplies more information about Sir Adolphe. Some extracts:

…Abrahams’ clinical training was undertaken at St Bartholomew’s Hospital

Bart’s was a site of wrongdoing and the concealing of wrongdoing in the generation of the Top Doctors who trained Dafydd et al, ie. Sir Adolphe’s generation. One such Top Doctor was the father of Lady Juliet Bingley who was a surgeon at Bart’s; Lady Juliet worked as an almoner (social worker) at Bart’s. Lady Juliet and her son William Bingley colluded with Dafydd and the linked gangs throughout their entire careers but particularly so when they were in senior positions at MIND during the 1970s and 80s and in William’s case when he was appointed CEO of the Mental Health Act Commission in 1990; a Director of Morecombe Bay Primary Care Trust, 2000-06; then Chairman of North Lancashire NHS Primary Care Trust and Professor of Mental Health Law and Ethics at the University of Central Lancashire, 2000-04. Bingley ran an NHS consultancy which flogged ‘expertise’ to the NHS. His conflict of interest resulted in him having to resign as Chairman of the North Lancashire NHS PCT. Bingley was killed in a fatal accident when out fell-walking three weeks later, in 2011. With his wife Helen, William Bingley was also co-founder of the Abaseen Foundation, a charidee developing health care in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, formerly the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan. S

Lady Juliet was married to Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, who after WW II served as Deputy Director of Air Warfare. He went on to be Chief of Staff to the Flag Officer (Air) and then Commander of the aircraft-carrier HMS Eagle in 1952. Bingley was appointed Fifth Sea Lord and Deputy Chief of Naval Staff (Air) in 1954 and Flag Officer, Aircraft Carriers in 1958. He was made Commander-in-Chief of the Mediterranean Fleet and NATO Commander Allied Forces Mediterranean in 1959 and then Commander-in-Chief, Portsmouth and Allied Commander-in-Chief, Channel in 1961. Sir Alec retired in 1963. Bingley was one of those who served close to Lord Louis Mountbatten and knew about the associated scandals as well as the Gay Spies in the Admiralty etc. See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’.

After qualification he undertook postgraduate study in Vienna. 

Vienna was a hot spot for the Top Doctors of that era who had an interest in psychoanalysis who used their positions as psychoanalysts and psychiatrists to conceal organised abuse. Whether Sir Adolphe was doing anything related to psychoanalysis in Vienna I don’t know, but he will have met analysts while he was there.

Abrahams served in the RAMC as a medical officer, 1915-20, attaining the rank of Major. He was appointed to the consultant staff of Westminster Hospital in 1920 and was also for a time consultant physician to Hampstead General Hospital and to the Royal Chest Hospital. He became Dean of Westminster Hospital Medical School shortly before the opening of the new Westminster School in Horseferry Road, in 1939, at which time he was knighted. 

Some months ago I read an historical account of a Westminster medical student who had been arrested after breaking into the nurses home, sexually harassing – and possibly indecently assaulting – one of the Angels within and helping himself to someone else’s purse. The lawyer representing him, one Ronnie Waterhouse, ensured that the Nice Young Doctor’s career was not adversely affected by a prosecution by thrashing out a deal with the Dean of Westminster Hospital Medical School. I am not sure if the helpful Dean was Sir Adolphe, but this is by no means the only anecdote that I have heard regarding appalling behaviour on the part of medical students of Dafydd’s vintage who should have been identified as far too irresponsible or indeed frankly dangerous to have been allowed to qualify. In that era, academic standards in medical schools were laughable – although that had changed by the 1980s – and once a medical student had begun training there really was almost nothing that they could do which would result in them not qualifying, although they were ferociously bullied and brutalised during their training.

Sir Adolphe was a general physician with a special interest in gastroenterology. He was also deeply interested in athletics and the training of athletes and was consulting medical officer to the British Olympic team on numerous occasions between 1912 and 1948. Abrahams’s written work was largely on gastroenterological subjects, exercise, physical fitness and the training of athletes. In his early years he was also interested in photography, especially that of moving objects, and in motoring.

Photographs eh?? Sir Adolphe could well have been photographing many things, but Dafydd’s mate Professor Linford Rees who held a Chair at Bart’s in the 1990s was renowned for livening up his lectures with photographs of ‘bathing beauties’ who happened to be his patients. See post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent…’. Whichever grim institution the bathing beauties will have had the misfortune to have been detained in will not have invested in bubble bath to have enabled the suds to have acted as a fig leaf a la TV adverts. The bathing beauties may not even have had the privilege of hot water and almost certainly were bathing in a communal area in full view of other people, as well as Linford and his camera.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful!

In 1928 Abrahams was Arris and Gale Lecturer of the Royal College of Surgeons and some years later Lumleian Lecturer, as well as Censor, of the Royal College of Physicians. For a time he was examiner in medicine in the Universities of Cambridge, Liverpool and London and President of the British Society of Gastroenterologists, as well as of the Section of Medicine, Royal Society of Medicine.

He was a physician of the old school to whom a detailed history and clinical examination were of basic importance and of more importance and interest than the results of laboratory investigations, which came last to confirm or refute the clinical diagnosis.

Sir Adolphe wasn’t one to worry about science…

His ward rounds were often enlivened by vivid, and sometimes caustic, comments to students but his detachment perhaps made rapport with patients less easy.

There’s the confession. He was a complete bastard who intimidated the students and was so cold and contemptuous that the patients hated him.

He was certainly an unforgettable figure, elegantly dressed in tail coat, monocled on occasion,

God knows what the patients thought.

  • never in a hurry, and with an almost eighteenth century grace and charm; his knobbly hands in marked contrast to the rest. His face had a Dickensian look about it. He wrote his medical notes and opinions in microscopic script, always lucid and well phrased. A great reader, he once remarked how much he would enjoy a few weeks in prison, away from all distractions, so that he could devote himself wholeheartedly to reading.

If only someone had been willing to arrange it

  • He did not care for holidays, which interfered with his well ordered life and reading and writing.
  • Sir Adolphe the Gentleman Thug must have been the eccentric Top Doctor who rang Denbigh in the 1990s trying to get hold of Dafydd. When Dafydd’s secretary told him that Dafydd was on holiday, the caller replied ‘A holiday? A holiday? I’ve never heard of such a thing. I’m on duty 24 hours a day 7 days a week’.
  • He was an excellent after dinner speaker and a considerable judge of food and wine, of which he partook sparingly.

So how did Raffles ever gain the expertise necessary to be a considerable judge of food and wine? Is this code for Raffles throwing hissy fits if he had been supplied with food which wasn’t up to his liking? It wasn’t that Raffles was the most dreadful old bugger, it was simply Raffles having a discerning palate.

The brother of a renowned athlete, he was no mean performer himself, and was often seen in middle age running round Regent’s Park. At a scientific meeting he showed a section of one of his own arteries, perhaps to emphasize the dissociation between structure and function.

Did Raffles perform an on the spot self-dissection??

In later years his hearing became impaired but even this, he said, had its compensations.

It was even easier to ignore the screams of horror and the many complaints.

On retirement from hospital work, his interests remained unabated and he spent a good deal of his time browsing in medical libraries. On Christmas Day he turned up regularly at his old hospital wards, impeccably dressed as usual, to watch with detached amusement his former junior colleagues, dressed in crazy garb, carve the turkey. ‘I could never do that’, he remarked.

Everyone would have known that Raffles and they probably wished that you’d stopped turning up to blight their Christmas.

He married Adrienne Walsh in 1922 and had one son and one daughter. His younger brothers were Sir Sydney Abrahams, PC, for many years Chief Justice in East Africa and Ceylon, who predeceased him, and Harold Maurice Abrahams, the Olympic athlete.

Raffles died in 1967, so he lived to see Dafydd launch his glorious career at the North Wales Hospital. Raffles will have known Admiral Sir Alec Bingley’s father-in-law, the surgeon at Barts…

 

Raffles acquired some interesting relatives via his younger brother Harold Abrahams. Harold Maurice Abrahams (15 December 1899 – 14 January 1978) was Olympic champion in 1924 in the 100 metres sprint, a feat depicted in the 1981 movie ‘Chariots of Fire’.

Harold Abrahams served as a lieutenant in the British Army. He attended Bedford School, Repton School and then Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, 1919-23. Abrahams then trained as a lawyer. At Cambridge, he was a member of the Cambridge University Athletics Club (of which he was president 1922–1923), Cambridge University Liberal Club, the Pitt Club and the Gilbert and Sullivan Society. Abrahams was also a member of the Achilles Club, a track and field club formed in 1920 by and for past and present representatives of Oxford and Cambridge universities. 

At the 1924 Summer Games, Abrahams won the 100 m in a time of 10.6 seconds, beating all the American favourites, including the 1920 gold-medal winner Charley Paddock. In third place was Arthur Porritt, later Governor-General of New Zealand and Queen’s Surgeon. See previous posts for information relating to Arthur Porritt’s collusion with Top Doctors’ crimes and the role that his son Jonathan Porritt played in colluding with Dafydd et al. The Paris Olympics 100 m dash took place at 7 p.m. on 7 July 1924, and Abrahams and Porritt dined together at 7 p.m. on 7 July every year thereafter, until Abrahams’s death in 1978. 

In May 1925, Abrahams broke his leg while long-jumping, ending his athletic career. He returned to his legal career. In 1928, he was team captain of the British Olympic team at Amsterdam and Editor of the Official British Olympic Report for the same games. Subsequently he worked as an athletics journalist for forty years, becoming a commentator on the sports for BBC radio. In 1936, Abrahams reported the Berlin Olympics for the BBC. Later in his life, Abrahams also became President of the Jewish Athletic Association, and served as Chairman for the Amateur Athletic Association(AAA).

Although not an official timer, Abrahams was present when Roger Bannister broke the four-minute mile in 1954. See previous posts.

In early 1934, Abrahams met D’Oyly Carte Opera Company singer Sybil Evers. They wed in December 1936. Sybil Evers could not have children, so they adopted an eight-week-old boy, Alan, in 1942 and a nearly three-year-old girl, Sue, in 1946. During the Nazi regime and war, the Abrahams’s also fostered two Jewish refugees: a German boy called “Ken Gardner” (born Kurt Katzenstein) and an Austrian girl named Minka.

Evers died in 1963 at the age of 59 and Harold set up two awards in her name: the Sybil Evers Memorial Prize for Singing (1965–1995), an annual cash prize awarded to the best female singer in her last year at the Webber Douglas School of Singing and Dramatic Art and the Sybil Abrahams Memorial Trophy, presented each year from 1964 onward at Buck House by Phil the Greek, President of the British Amateur Athletics Association to the best British woman athlete.

Harold Abrahams was a keen Freemason. 

Abrahams was inducted into the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 1981 and into the England Athletics Hall of Fame in 2009.

Abrahams has been recognised with an English Heritage Blue plaque at his former home in Golders Green which was unveiled by his daughter Sue and nephew Tony Abrahams:

A plaque from the Heritage Foundation was unveiled at Harold Abrahams’s birthplace, Rutland Road in Bedford, on 8 July 2012. This coincided with the Olympic torch relay passing through the town.

In July 2012, plans were announced to erect a memorial to Abrahams in Telford to recognise that before the 1924 Olympics he won a gold medal in the 100-yard sprint at the Midlands Area AAA championships at St George’s Recreation Club ground. The memorial, in the form of a plaque, was unveiled by Abrahams’s daughter Sue in October 2014 in the lounge of the club, which now possesses the medal that he won at the event.

Abrahams’s daughter Sue married Pat Pottle. Pat Pottle was a founding member of the Committee of 100, an anti-nuclear group which broke away from CND. In 1962, at the height of the Cold War, Pottle was jailed for 18 months for conspiracy (as one of the Wethersfield Six) to organise the Committee of 100 demonstrations at the nuclear base USAF Wethersfield in Essex. In Wormwood Scrubs, Pottle met the Communist spy and double agent George Blake and Pat’s outrage at the “vicious” sentence imposed on Blake led Pat and two others, Michael Randle and Sean Bourke, help Blake to escape in Oct 1966. It was a few months after Blake had escaped that Pottle met and married Sue.

For most of his working life Pat Pottle was a printer, running his own Stanhope Press in the 1960s, working as printer for the Peace Pledge Union in the early 1990s and running his own Pottle Press in the late 1990s.

Pat died in Oct 2000 and his obituary in The Torygraph stated that:

‘Though Pottle and his co-conspirator Michael Randle were suspected [of helping Blake escape], the security services decided not to prosecute on the grounds that it might be seen as “persecution – that the big fish had got away so they were taking it out on the little fish”. The pair were only charged with aiding and abetting Blake’s escape in 1991, after they had written a full account of their involvement, ‘The Blake Affair – How We Freed George Blake – and Why’ (1989), and after Conservative MPs had demanded that the case be reopened.

Blake, a British intelligence officer, was found guilty in 1961 of supplying information to the Soviet Union. He was sentenced to 42 years in prison, one year for each British agent thought to have been killed through his treachery. It was the longest specified sentence in modern times.

Pottle and Randle met him and an Irish criminal called Sean Bourke in Wormwood Scrubs where they were serving sentences imposed in 1962 for conspiracy following the occupation of an American air base at Wethersfield, Essex, by supporters of the Committee of 100 (a breakaway group from CND).

In May 1966, after their release, Bourke approached them about springing Blake. In October Blake was helped over the wall by Bourke using a rope ladder. He was then hidden in various London flats by Pottle and Randle. In December he was smuggled to Berlin in a compartment hidden under the bunk of a camper van driven by Randle; he later surfaced in Moscow.

For years it was assumed that Blake’s escape had been masterminded by the KGB, but in the run-up to their trial Pottle and Randle secured the disclosure of MI5 papers which showed they had been suspected from the beginning.

In 1970 these suspicions were confirmed when Sean Bourke wrote a book about the affair in which he thinly disguised the names of the other participants as “Pat Porter” and “Michael Reynolds”. In 1987, Pottle and Randle were named in press reports as having been involved in the breakout. Still no action was taken.

At their trial at the Old Bailey, Pottle and Randle who represented themselves, argued that their motives had been humanitarian and that since the security services had known of their involvement but had done nothing until MPs demanded their prosecution, the trial was political. They were unanimously acquitted by the jury…

In 1960 he joined the Committee of 100, a breakaway group dedicated to using civil disobedience to advance their cause. The following year he took over from Randle as secretary of the group after Randle had been jailed for his involvement in an anti-nuclear demonstration. Pottle participated in a number of demonstrations including a four-hour sit-in at the Soviet embassy.

In December 1961, when he was wanted by the police after the occupation of the air base at Wethersfield, he went into hiding. Only in February 1962, when he appeared at a press conference at Kingsway Hall in London, was Pottle arrested by Special Branch men. He defended himself and attempted to use the trial as a platform for his political beliefs. He, Randle and four other defendants were jailed for 18 months.

After his release, Pottle became secretary to the philosopher and disarmament campaigner Bertrand Russell. In 1964 he was put on trial in China and deported for “inciting the Chinese people to overthrow the state”. Later the same year he was deported from Greece after joining anti-nuclear demonstrations. Months later he was deported from Malta for organising an anti-nuclear demonstration there.

He co-founded the Vietnam Information Group in 1967, to help American deserters and draft dodgers reach Sweden on false documents. A year later he was arrested demonstrating in London against the Colonels’ coup in Greece. Later he organised demonstrations against the Soviet occupation of Czechoslovakia.

In 1969, Pottle seemed to have grown tired of civil disobedience and with his family moved to Wales. There he went into business as an antiques dealer and ran the Pottle Press, printing leaflets for the anti-nuclear movement. Ten years later they returned to London.

 

Pat and Sue lived in Croesor and were friends with many of the radicals and bohemians who were there during the 1970s and 80s, as described in previous posts eg ‘The Village’. They were friendly with local people as well as with the ‘Welsh Bloomsbury Set’ and they will have known about Dafydd’s gang, who were making the life of the locals very difficult. Pat must have known that Bertrand Russell was an abusive man who was utilising the services of Dafydd’s network to put anyone who raised concerns about Russell’s conduct out of action (see post ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’). Sue and her friends did know about the con of appointing a ‘Welsh speaking social worker’ in the late 1960s for language equality purposes, who ensured that Gwynne and Dafydd found it even easier to bang up anyone who had spilt the gang’s pints, because they’d been assessed in their first language so OF COURSE the assessment was fair and yes they are definitely nuts and need to be locked up in Denbigh for decades without trial…

In 2011 Thomas Merfyn Hughes, a retired social worker who lived in Croesor, was found dead in someone else’s garden. His body was concealed from view and Mr Hughes had been dead for many, many hours before his body was found. I do not know if Mr Hughes was the Welsh speaking social worker of legend who simply made it even easier for Dafydd et al to abduct and imprison people who had spilt their pints, but in approx 2005, Mr Hughes was the manager of the thugs of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team and when they refused to hand over their file on me – which they should never have had because I had never been a ‘client’ of theirs – Mr Hughes kindly went to their office and retrieved it, giving me a copy. See previous posts eg. ‘A Particularly Worrying Death’. Mr Hughes had previously served as the election agent of Elfyn Llwyd, a solicitor and barrister who was the Plaid MP for Meirionydd Nant Conwy, 1992-2010 and Dwyfor Meirionnydd, 2010-15. Elfyn Llwyd was President of Gwynedd Law Society, 1990-91. It was always believed in north Wales that Elfyn Llwyd was an even bigger crook than the other lawyers in the region.

Yma O Hyd!

As Elfyn will know, because his wife Eleri is a Welsh songster. Did Eleri sing at Mr Hughes’s funeral then Elfyn? ‘Calon Lan’ perhaps? Or ‘I Am the Mob’ a la Catatonia?

I did know about Pat Pottle being put on trial for helping George Blake escape years after Blake had got away and Pat’s trial was famously farcical, but I’ve only just noticed the year that Pat was put on trial at the Old Bailey. It was 1991. The year that I and my friends who were witnesses to Dafydd’s criminality had our careers wrecked and the year in which the gang made two consecutive attempts to have me imprisoned on the basis of the perjury of Tony and Sadie Francis. One of my court appearances was at the Royal Courts of Justice at The Strand. So I was down from the Bethesda, in the Royal Courts of Justice, on ludicrous charges and Pat Pottle, who had only recently moved from Croesor, was up in the Old Bailey on ludicrous charges…

In Feb 1991 Lilibet knighted Peter Morrison.

Pat Pottle was someone whom it would have been known was aware of a great deal of what Bertrand Russell and his friends got up to and who assisted them. In 1991 the North Wales Police were midway through their investigation into the possible presence of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. The Chief Constable of North Wales refused to co-operate with the investigation and in 1992 the investigation stopped when the North Wales Police announced that there was no evidence of any paedophile ring.

The Westminster Paedophile Ring experienced a major panic in 1990, because Greville Janner and his mate the Leicestershire social worker Frank Beck – a Liberal Party Councillor – were hauled in and questioned by the police regarding the abuse of children in care. Janner’s solicitor Sir David Napley was so convinced that Janner would be prosecuted that he retained George Carman QC, George having established his reputation when he got Jeremy Thorpe off charges of incitement to kill and conspiracy in 1979. Beck was charged and remanded in custody. Janner was not charged and when he reappeared in the House of Turds after being interviewed under caution he was given a round of applause. In Nov 1991 at Leicester Crown Court Frank Beck was sentenced to five life sentences in prison and an additional 24 years for the physical and sexual abuse, including the rape, of more than 100 children in his care. Years later the DPP admitted that Janner should have been charged as well and no-one was able to explain why he wasn’t.

Frank Beck always maintained that he had been scapegoated for the crimes of people more famous and with more clout than he had. Peter Howarth said exactly the same thing when he was jailed in 1994. Beck was found dead in Whitemoor Prison ‘from a heart attack’ on 31 May 1994, aged 51, just over two weeks after John Smith died ‘after a heart attack’. Howarth was found dead in Wakefield Prison on 24 April 1997. So neither Frank Beck and Peter Howarth were around to name names at the Waterhouse Inquiry, particularly as Ronnie Waterhouse suddenly decided that he would be taking a holiday in Hong Kong shortly after the Waterhouse Inquiry opened. Ronnie popped off on holiday for a few weeks in March 1994. While Ronnie was in Hong Kong he met up and dined with Derry Irvine, who just happened to be in Hong Kong as well! On another occasion Ronnie was most impressed with two junior barristers of Derry’s whom Ronnie encountered – a Cherie Booth and a Tony Blair…

While Pat Pottle and I were appearing in Britain’s most famous Courts, it was all kicking off at Bangor University. It was in the early 1990s that Dafydd’s gwerin declared war on a senior sociologist at Bangor and he was wrongly accused by the gwerin – and by ‘The Guardian’ – of discriminating against Welsh speakers when appointing staff. One person caught in the cross-fire was Nerys, Merfyn’s late wife, who years later died after Dafydd’s mates at the Walton Centre found that there was no treatment for her, just after Dafydd and the gang had declared war on Merfyn and were openly telling anyone who would listen that they would get him out of his job as VC of Bangor University (see post ‘Badlands’).

Nerys became ill not long after the brother-in-law of Miranda’s policy adviser John McTernan nicked my computer.

I am currently reading more about the George Blake case and I might return to it in a future blog post.

The Home Secretary when Pat Pottle and I were making guests appearances at the Old Bailey and the Royal Courts of Justice was Ken Baker. In previous posts I have explained why I think that Ken Baker may have had something to do with the framing of and wrongful imprisonment and detention in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh of Patient F.

The DPP when I and Pat Pottle were prosecuted at the Royal Courts of Justice and the Old Bailey respectively was Sir Allan Green.

  • Godfather Horse's Head Cake | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

 

Sir Allan David Green (born 1 March 1935) was DPP, 1987-92. He was called to the Bar in 1959 and rose to become a recorder in 1979. Sir Allan resigned as DPP in October 1991 when he was spotted kerb-crawling in King’s Cross, London. He claimed that he was holding discussions with them but about what he did not explain. Sir Allan’s wife committed suicide in 1993. Or rather she was found dead and it was claimed that she committed suicide, but there were a great many things about that suicide which did not add up. See post ‘A Future Leader Of The Labour Party’.

Sir Allan continued with his career however, both prosecuting and defending in important cases, particularly murders. Between 2000 and 2004 he represented 10 British soldiers in the 1972 Bloody Sunday Inquiry. Sir Allan had been paid £1.5 million for his work on the Inquiry. Just three words:

Kincora Boys’ Home.

Sir Allan is a member of Inner Temple and remained a practising barrister in London until his retirement in 2013. Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss is a member of Inner Temple. Butler-Sloss was responsible for concealing the chaos that Dafydd’s associates in Cleveland caused in 1987-88 (see post ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’). Butler-Sloss is the sister of Lord Michael Havers who spent a lifetime colluding with Dafydd et al and as Attorney General under Thatcher, blocked the prosecution of Westminster and Whitehall paedophiles such as Cyril Smith and Sir Geoffrey Hayman. See previous posts.

After Sir Allan resigned as DPP, Dame Barbara Mills was appointed and then Dafydd et al really celebrated. Mrs Mills’s daughter has just been appointed Chair of the Parole Board. Is it not extraordinary that Dafydd is now nearly 90 years old and all public appointments still have to be made with him in mind?

 

Dannie Abse’s good friend at King’s College was Russell Barton. Russell Barton was one of the 96 British medical students who spent a month in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp two weeks after its liberation in 1945 to help survivors. Barton later became a psychiatrist and in 1968 his comments about Bergen-Belson caused an enormous row when Barton wrote about the medical students’ experiences and his understanding of Belsen based on his time there, in an invited article in Purnell’s History of the Second World War. As well as stating that Bergen-Belsen was ‘not so bad’, Barton proffered the following reasons for the conditions found there:

Most people attributed the conditions of the inmates to deliberate intention on the part of the Germans in general and the camp administrators in particular. Inmates were eager to cite examples of brutality and neglect, and visiting journalists from different countries interpreted the situation according to the needs of propaganda at home.

For example, one newspaper emphasized the wickedness of the “German masters” by remarking that some of the 10,000 unburied dead were naked. In fact, when the dead were taken from a hut and left in the open for burial, other prisoners would take their clothing from them …

German medical officers told me that it had been increasingly difficult to transport food to the camp for some months. Anything that moved on the autobahns was likely to be bombed …

I was surprised to find records, going back for two or three years, of large quantities of food cooked daily for distribution. I became convinced, contrary to popular opinion, that there had never been a policy of deliberate starvation. This was confirmed by the large numbers of well-fed inmates. Why then were so many people suffering from malnutrition?… The major reasons for the state of Belsen were disease, gross overcrowding by central authority, lack of law and order within the huts, and inadequate supplies of food, water and drugs.

In trying to assess the causes of the conditions found in Belsen one must be alerted to the tremendous visual display, ripe for purposes of propaganda, that masses of starved corpses presented.

One thing that really outraged people about Barton’s article were his perceived parallels between the regimes controlling Belsen and NHS psychiatric hospitals; he noted similar harmful psychological consequences for those held within and commented that the public appeared to turn a blind eye to both. Claire Hilton, in a June 2018 article published in ‘Contemporary British History’ which reviewed the row over Barton’s 1968 article, stated that ‘While some of his interpretations of Belsen were incorrect, his experience there connected intimately with his passion and persistence to provide humane and dignified treatment and care for patients and to improve hospital facilities’.

Russell Barton failed with regard to his attempts to do that and although he did speak out regarding psychiatry he did not ever raise the matter of the psychiatric system being used to conceal organised paedophile rings, although he knew that was happening, as did his old friend Dannie Abse and Dannie’s brothers Leo and Wilfred.

Holocaust deniers cited Barton’s article on Bergen-Belsen, most famously in Did Six Million Really Die? The Truth At Last, a pamphlet allegedly written by NF member Richard Verrall under the pseudonym Richard E. Harwood and published in 1974 by neo-Nazi propagandist Ernst Zundel, another Holocaust denier and pamphleteer. In 1983, Holocaust survivor Sabina Citron began a private prosecution under s.181 of the Canadian Criminal Code against Zündel, charging him with spreading false news. Citron was subsequently joined in her proceedings against Zündel by the Gov’t of Ontario. The Supreme Court concluded in the 1988 trial that “The pamphlet Did Six Million Really Die? does not fit with received views of reality because it is not part of reality.” Russell Barton was called as a witness for the defence in the trial of Ernst Zundel.

I haven’t yet worked out what was happening here. Barton – someone who was a personal friend of a man involved with the Westminster Paedophile Ring who was from a Jewish family and using Jewish networks to conceal the offending – made anti-semitic comments in 1968 and combined them with a critique of the dreadful abuses in psychiatry but didn’t mention Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. However his comments re psychiatry caused outrage and his anti-semitic comments were taken up by Holocaust deniers a few years later. In 1988 fire rained down on Barton once more as a result of the Ernst Zundel trial; in 1988 Dafydd et al were busy putting the boot into Mary, Alison Taylor, me and my friends, including Brown who was living in Leicester, Greville’s manor. The Greville who was mates with Leo Abse, who were both part of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and both linked to Dafydd. By 1988, I had made a formal complaint about Dafydd and the gang and it was obvious that I wasn’t going to withdraw it or go away. It was at about this time that someone tried to fracture Brown’s skull. Was someone trying to shaft Barton because of his links with organised abuse? Or was someone trying to shaft him lest he ever went one step further re his critique of psychiatry and blew the whistle on the Top Doctors who were using psychiatry to conceal the Westminster Paedophile Ring?

 

Dannie Abse’s fellow students at Westminster on Raffles’s ‘firm’ were Neville Stotesbury, Eric Trimmer and Norman Kreitman. Neville Stotesbury is described in Dannie’s autobiography as a Tory who was opposed to the establishment of the NHS and argued with Dannie about this. Dannie remained loyal to Nye Bevan of course and explains in ‘A Poet In The Family’ how he knew that the NHS would Help The Poor. Including those Poor who complained about Dannie’s brother’s mates sexually assaulting children. After Army service and GP experience in Wiltshire, in 1951 Neville Stotesbury joined a group practice in East Bristol (doctors Duerden, Plant, Glendinning, Dowling, and Jahans). In 1964 the group, with the exception of Dr Duerden, moved into the new St George Health Centre in Bristol. Stotsebury died in 2010.

Sir Peter Morrison’s family seat was in Wiltshire. Morrison’s father John Morrison aka Lord Margadale was the Tory MP for Salisbury, 1942-65. Peter Morrison’s older brother Sir Charles was the Tory MP for Devizes, 1964-92. Dr D.G.E. Wood, the Bangor GP who was facilitating Dafydd’s gang in the 1980s and 90s came from a medical family in Bristol; Wood’s father was a Top Doctor in the Bristol area and Wood went to Bristol Medical School. Lord David Hunt spent his time as the Tory MP for the Wirral and then Wirral West, 1976-97 and as a Welsh Office Minister and then Secretary of State for Wales, 4 May 1990-27 May 1993 and 26 June 1995-5 July 1995, colluding with Dafydd and the gang. Hunt is a lawyer who did his degree at Bristol University at about the same time that Wood was a student there. In Lilibet’s 1973 burfday honours Hunt received an MBE for ‘political services in the west of England’.

I’d love to know what those services were. Anything to do with that paedophile ring in Bridgwater targeting kids from my school then Hunt, the gang which had links to Dafydd’s gang and thrived under Tom King when he was the Tory MP for Bridgwater, 1970-92?

The Lord King of Bridgwater
Official portrait of Lord King of Bridgwater crop 2.jpg

An unprincipled git who did anything necessary to bag a place in the Cabinet and someone who has questions to answer, including about that drowning of a party goer at a Tory shagfest in the Polden Hills in the early 1970s.

Hunt is now Chairman of the law firm DAC Beachcroft’s financial services division and is regarded as a major figure in the world of insurance and financial services. DAC Beachcroft carries out work for the MDU. David Hunt grew up in Glyn Ceiriog in Denbighshire, although he went to school at Liverpool College. Hunt’s father was Alan N. Hunt, a Royal Naval Reserves Officer. One of the Sir Alec Bingley-Lord Mountbatten network then. See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’. When David Hunt was young he joined the Young Conservatives. So he’ll have found out about Dafydd’s gang from his the big wigs in the Young Conservatives in that era, Beata Brookes and Peter Walker (see previous posts eg. ‘On The Occasion of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’)…

I don’t know whether he is any relation to the Dr Duerden who worked with Wood’s network in Bristol, but a Martin Duerden used to be the Deputy/Acting Medical Director of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board when Merfyn was Chairman and the Top Docs conspired to withold vital information and cause patient deaths to create a scandal and force Merfyn to resign. See previous posts eg. ‘The Point Is To Change It’. Martin Duerden was a smug arrogant bastard who used to do everything possible to trip Merfyn up in Board meetings and he blocked all suggestions for improvement.

‘We’re a self-regulating profession Professor Jones.’

They’re a bunch of fucking criminals who are killing patients.

I note from Duerden’s entry on the Medical Register that he qualified from Dafydd’s mates stronghold, Newcastle-upon-Tyne Medical School, in 1982 and at present Duerden has not got a license to practice.

Oh what has happened Martin? Don’t tell me that you are under investigation for very serious crimes? Or have you suddenly decided that medicine is no longer for you? It’s not as though you’ll have been hounded out for whistleblowing is it…

 

Dannie’s friend Dr Eric Trimmer died in 1997. He worked as a GP for 25 years and also became a well-known medical journalist. Trimmer’s books included books on baby care, childbirth, on rejuvenation, relaxation techniques and healthy eating and specifically ‘Live Long, Stay Young’, ‘A Young Man’s Guide To Medicine’, ‘What Every Woman Should Know About Her Body’ – I’d better order that one, I’ve been in ignorance for years and Eric published that in 1966 – and the intriguingly titled ‘A Visual Dictionary of Sex’ (1971)…

Dannie’s other big medical school pal Norman Kreitman was a psychiatrist who fancied himself as a poet. After graduating in 1949, Kreitman worked at a TB hospital on the Isle of Wight before training as a psychiatrist at the Maudsley, pretty much at the same time as Dafydd was ‘training’ at the Maudsley. As an older and well-known Top Doctor, Kreitman spoke about his application and selection for ‘training’ at the Maudsley and was quite frank about the laughably lax entry requirements, the bizarre interview and the fact that the Maudsley accepted all comers because psychiatry was such an unpopular speciality and the Maudsley wanted as many trainees as possible to give the institution credibility. Kreitman relocated to Edinburgh in 1966 and became the Director of the MRC Unit for Epidemiological Studies in Psychiatry. Like all the big names in psychiatry of his generation, Kreitman concealed extensive wrongdoing, including that of Dafydd et al and actually received a very poor training. Norman Kreitman is credited with coining the term ‘parasuicide’. For further info re Kreitman and his hopeless, abusive, mad colleagues at the Maudsley and elsewhere, see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’.

When Professor Mark Williams worked in Bangor with Dafydd’s gang, there was quite a problem with patients in north Wales injuring themselves but not fatally, which was how Williams became an expert on parasuicide and wrote his book ‘Cry Of Pain’. My own belief is that there was such a problem in north Wales because patients were abused, provoked and tormented by the staff constantly and a lot of injuries were out of sheer frustration. I only know one person who was referred to Mark Williams for ‘parasuicide’ and this person knew of no-one else either, so we’ve always wondered where Williams’s data came from, just as we wondered where all the people in north Wales who recovered from depression by using Mindfulness are. We were patients throughout those years and we saw no evidence of the miracles or indeed the clinical trials.

My friend who was referred to Mark Williams ended up self-injuring more while he was ‘in therapy’ with Williams because he found Williams so difficult and obstructive. Williams was attempting to use a staged plan to reduce this man’s self-harming but the plan didn’t work and Williams acknowledged this but didn’t change the plan. So my friend continued injuring himself and Williams would then order him to Start Again. So my friend never finished the plan, it was just months and months of escalating self-harm. My friend gave up with Mark Williams in the end, but before he did, he found out that Mark was writing ‘Cry Of Pain’ in which he promoted the theory which had failed so dismally with my friend. Some five years ago my friend wrote to Mark Williams and told him in some detail that he believed that Mark had caused him quite serious damage. He was still self-harming 20 years after Mark’s ‘therapy’. My friend asked to see Mark’s data re the successful parasuicide outcomes. Mark told him that he no longer had the data. Williams bagged himself a Chair at Oxford supposedly on the basis of that data, along with his Mindfulness success. And he didn’t keep the data???

Did Mark Williams perhaps bag that Chair at Oxford on the basis of his knowledge of er Dafydd et al and what was done to a group of junior academics and media professionals in the early 1990s who had found out some of what was going on?

There is a substantial problem now with young people self-harming, many years after Mark Williams developed an effective strategy to address this. Over to you Mark!!!

 

Although Dannie Abse and his family maxed out on Dannie’s status as a Top Doctor at every opportunity, Dannie’s real influence lay with all the folk whom he knew from his literary and artistic circles. Even when still a student, Dannie clocked up many worthwhile contacts. Among them were Dylan Thomas, Stephen Spender and Herbert Read. Dannie knew the painter Fred James and he knew Leo Solomon who was very friendly with Leo. Dannie was friendly with Denise Levertov, a poet who had previously worked as an Angel. Denise’s mum was Welsh and her dad, Dr Paul Levertoff, was Jewish. Denise emigrated to the US. Dannie wrote theatre reviews as well as poetry and rubbed noses with luvvies. He was friends with the actors Theo Bikel, Michael Flanders and Miriam Karlin.

Dannie’s Abse’s girlfriend, who became his wife, was Joan Mercer from St Helen’s, Liverpool. When she was still at school, Joan was Secretary of the local Independent Labour Party. Joan went to the LSE; she was there while Ralph Miliband was there and like Miliband she was a big fan of Harold Laski, the man who’s influence enabled Miliband to serve in the Royal Navy, although Miliband wasn’t a British national (see post ‘What’s Left? The Politics Of Social Justice?’). Joan then worked in the library of the ‘Financial Times’.

Dannie Abse certainly knew how to pick his contacts, he knew Noa Eshkol, the daughter of Levi Eshkol, PM of Israel, 1963-69. Dannie knew Noa when she was a trainee with Ballet Jooss at Swiss Cottage. Dannie and his wife were friends with Emanuel Litvinoff, who was at their wedding.

Dannie even met T.S. Eliot when he was a student. I presume that Dannie didn’t mention that business of T.S. Eliot having his wife Viv banged up in an asylum for years, but nonetheless OK’d it with Bertrand Russell to go into the asylum on a regular basis and have sex with Viv. Bertrand will have been pulling a few strings with the Top Doctors again because in those days asylums were segregated by gender and the only men allowed into the women’s wing to sexually exploit the patients were the Angels and Top Doctors. And Bertrand Russell.

  • Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell, OM FRS was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic, political activist, Nobel laureate and associate of Gwynne and Dafydd.

Dannie’s autobiography includes a few of the highlights during his time at medical school, other than the names of all the famous people whom he hung about with. He mentions the medical student from Cardiff who shot himself dead because he feared that he had made a cinema usherette pregnant. Dannie’s girlfriend at the time – his girlfriend before Dannie met Joan Mercer – simply said ‘oh well tough shit’ when she heard about the young man’s death. Dannie didn’t ever get near to shooting himself but he did do a great deal of shagging a great many people and was encouraged in this by every male member of his family. Wilfred however, his older brother who was already working as a Top Doctor, a psychiatrist, did warn Dannie to ALWAYS use a condom. Not lest he made an usherette pregnant, but to protect against catching syphilis, which Wilfred knew was quite likely with Dannie’s sexual habits.

After qualifying as a Top Doctor, in 1950 Dannie returned to south Wales and took a job as a locum in Cardiff. By 1950, Dannie’s former teacher George Thomas was the Labour MP for Cardiff Central.

Dannie undoubtedly knew that George Thomas was molesting boys and he will have known about the trafficking of teenaged girls from Wales to England in the years leading up to the Profumo Affair (see ‘On The Occasion Of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’).

Dannie served in the RAF for his National Service, working in a chest clinic; Dannie Abse spent his entire medical career as a chest doctor, concerned quite often with TB. Dannie’s National Service included a stint in a clinic in central London, near the BBC. Dannie of course had mates who worked at the BBC and they no doubt served him well in later years whenever anyone threatened to go public on the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Dannie was also posted to N Ireland.

Dannie describes serving under the most appalling Wing Commander while he did his National Service. The Wing Commander didn’t violently assault Dannie or the other junior officers, but he was rude and bullying. Dannie explains in his book how he wreaked his revenge on the Wing Commander when Dannie was responsible for carrying out medicals on all the officers, including the Wing Commander, a non-medic. Dannie took delight in repeatedly demanding of the Wing Commander ‘have you ever had syphilis?’ and revelling at the Wing Commander’s uncomfortable silence.

This is just so Top Doctor, I witnessed this sort of thing constantly when I worked in medical research. There’s Dannie, terrified of catching a dose himself and being very, very careful because he knows exactly what the consequences will be if he does – ‘ooh Dannie Abse has the clap’, the topic of ribaldry and shaming – so he really maxes out when he guesses that someone of whom he is not very fond is hiding the yellow star of syphilis. The Wing Commander should have said ‘yes I have, so what and I’ll remind you that your job is to treat people not to pass judgement’.

There was a very unpopular consultant’s wife at St George’s who was indeed the most ridiculous snotty old cow, but no-one ever actually challenged her over her rudeness and vacuous snobbery. No, they found out from their colleagues that she’d had surgery for a uterine prolapse and pissed themselves laughing.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful!

Very often they are not, they are narrow-minded and spiteful and have the mentality of the 18 year old medical students that they once were. There often isn’t much evolution evident.

When Dannie was in middle age he knew that kids in care in north Wales were contracting syphilis, because his brother’s acquaintances were infecting them. Dannie also knew that catching syphilis is not always linked to massive promiscuity, obviously one’s risk escalates if one conducts business like Danny or Leo, but anyone at all can catch syphilis from one sexual encounter with one infected person.

Methinks the Abse Protesteth Too Much:

  • Derek at the men's health clinic - The Catherine Tate Show ...
  • ‘How Very Dare You. Just because my surname is Abse you think that I’m facilitating a pan-European paedophile gang. How Very Very Dare You. I’ve been a Top Doctor since my brother put my name down for Westminster Medical School when I was 13 and my dad owns the little cinema in Newport that George Thomas likes to visit and just because my brother is a crooked lawyer who is concealing Dafydd’s crimes and is a friend of Greville Janner and you think that… I’ve never been so insulted in all my life. I’m leaving. And anyway it’s time for my penicillin. FOR MY TOOTH ABSCESS’.
Dannie Abse

CBE FRSL

Dannie Abse.jpg

As someone who had knowledge of the symptoms of syphilis which remained untreated, Dannie Abse will have realised that Bertrand Russell almost certainly had it.

After taking sadistic pleasure in making senior officers believe that Dannie was never at risk of catching syphilis himself, that had only happened to them, Dannie was appointed Medical Officer directly responsible to Air Vice Marshal Sir Aubrey Rumball.

The Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives Of The Fellows’ Online tells of Sir Aubrey:

Campion Aubrey Rumball was the third and youngest child of Frederick William Rumball, an engineer who headed the family business, and Jane (née Watson).

As a child his curiosity was boundless, encompassing all forms of engineering, chemistry and biology. He was at Dulwich College and had little interest in orthodox sporting activities though later in life he enjoyed and did well at tennis and squash. His inventiveness showed itself very early on. Examinations were never a difficulty for him. From Dulwich he went to Guy’s, qualifying first in Dentistry in 1926 and in Medicine with the Conjoint diploma in 1930. After house appointments at Guy’s he was commissioned in the medical branch of the RAF in 1932. He soon found himself serving in the Middle East and developed an interest in tropical medicine which led to his taking the diploma in 1937. Joining the RAF was a deliberate act for him; he foresaw conflict in Europe and perhaps elsewhere, and wished to be poised to give professional help. He soon became aware of the need for training and experience in psychological medicine to enable an individual to care effectively for aircrew and assist them with their problems. This led to a period of study at the Maudsley Hospital and the acquisition of the DPM.

So Sir Aubrey was one of those who knew that the Maudsley as well as the rest of the psychiatric establishment were concealing the organised abuse of children and vulnerable people. The Maudsley and its network protected Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring for their entire careers. Sir Aubrey was a very powerful figure in that network and he didn’t die until 1975…

With this background and his own personal qualities and dedicated application to this work, he was well equipped to play his part when hostilities broke out. His first wartime posting was to RAF Hospital, Matlock (designed to be an Aircrew Psychiatric Rehabilitation Centre) and then in May 1940 as officer-in-charge of the Medical Division and Neuropsychiatrist at No. 2 Mobile Field Hospital with the Advanced Air Striking Force in France.

On the fall of France, as ‘Officer-in-charge of Transport’ he spent eighteen days crossing France with a convoy of vehicles, using all sorts of ruses to avoid capture and escaping eventually through Nantes. He was specialist in Neuropsychiatry at the Officers and Aircrew Hospital, Torquay, and later at Rauceby where his work brought him in close touch with Air Marshal Harris (“Bomber Harris”, later Marshal of the Royal Air Force, Sir Arthur Harris, Bt.). Harris valued Rumball’s work very highly and is said to have remarked that it was “worth more than a bomber squadron to him”.

See previous posts for Bomber Harris’s links to those we know and love.

While at the RAF Hospital Cairo, he published with others a paper on sternal puncture in the diagnosis of malaria, a contribution of great value. His knowledge of tropical diseases stood him in good stead in this posting, and subsequently when his work took him to Aden, Singapore and Cyprus.

Rumball succeeded Sir Alan Rook as Senior Consultant in Medicine on 1st May 1948, the chief physician post in the Service, which he held till his premature retirement in the rank of Air Vice Marshal in 1966. His time as Consultant in Medicine was a very active and productive one, though the overall numbers in the Service were dwindling and National Service came to an end in 1959. Early on he saw the need for the artificial kidney and through his recommendation a unit was set up at Halton, one of the earliest to be established in the country. Among his other achievements was the bringing into being of the unit for investigation and treatment of hypertension at RAF Hospital Cosford.

In the College he was elected MRCP in 1947 and FRCP five years later. He was a member of the panel of examiners for the MRCP. Honours and awards came to him in good measure. He had a mention in despatches in the Palestine Rising in 1933, was made OBE in 1945, CBE in 1954 and KBE in 1964. He was awarded the Lady Cade Medal of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1956 “for outstanding contributions to Medicine in the RAF”. He was honorary physician to HM King George VI from 1948-1952 and to HM Queen Elizabeth II from 1952-1966.

They don’t come posher than Dafydd’s mates!

In 1969 he was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, having given invaluable service as Treasurer for a number of years. At various times he was Consultant Adviser in Medicine to BOAC and BEA, to the Air Line Pilots Association and the Ministry of Transport (Ministry of Civil Aviation) and after retiring from his post as Consultant in Medicine, Honorary Consulting Physician to the Ministry of Defence (Air).

With hair which turned white early in life, he was invariably neatly dressed whether in uniform or in civilian clothes.

So Sir Aubrey didn’t wear ill-fitting George Melly suits and have a liberal smattering of dandruff a la Dafydd.

His patience was well nigh inexhaustible and he was always concerned for the problems of his physicians…

As opposed to showing one jot of concern for patients. Sir Aubrey will no doubt have been on hand with a helpful letter or character reference on every occasion that a serious complaint was made about Dafydd…

and did all he could to fit in their postings conveniently when it was possible. In retirement he lived near Hastings. He was very skilful with his hands and did much construction work in his home himself. His inventiveness was well exemplified by his axis deviation calculator. At Hastings he had a most unfortunate accident falling from a ladder while doing something to the roof. He was unconscious and damaged an ankle and the effects of this injury dogged him for some time. One of the last contributions which he made to the College was the submission of an important collection of evidence to the Committee sitting to consider the cardiovascular fitness of airline pilots.

 

When I was researching Rumball, I came across the obituary of another Top Doctor who had died at approximately the same time as Rumball, in Dec 1975. But this Top Doctor, Pierre Turquet, had been killed in a car crash in France.

Pierre Maurice Turquet (13 December 1913 – 27 December 1975) was born in Wandsworth and worked as a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst at the Tavistock Clinic. Turquet had a special interest in group relations. He was also a British Olympic fencer.

Pierre Turquet was the son of André Turquet (1869-1940), French-born director of the London Diplomatic Service crammer ‘Scoones’, and Gladys, (c.1889-1977), Head of French at Westfield College, London and Professor of French at Bedford College. Pierre was educated at Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he switched from history to science before completing medical training at the London Hospital. By the early 1970s, Dafydd’s gang were conducting their trafficking business on the patch of the London Hospital.

During WW II, Pierre was a Major in the RAMC, helping to develop the War Office Selection Boards. He married Clare Hunter in 1940. Pierre was subsequently seconded to SHAEF and the French War Office. After the war he was Research Psychiatrist at the MRC Social Medicine Research Unit, researching the interpersonal and intrafamily relations of young people with duodenal ulcers, before becoming a consultant psychiatrist at the Tavi in 1952. He worked as a group analyst. From 1968 to 1973 Pierre was Chairman of the Adult Department of the Tavistock. 

Pierre knew the names and details of those involved with Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring and he’ll have had the dirt on everyone in the previous generation as well. Pierre was killed the year that Leo Abse finally saw his rewriting of the legislation re children in care come to fruition. Three months before Pierre was killed, Andrew Newton had made a bungled attempt to kill Norman Scott but had failed, killing Norman’s dog instead. Norman had turned up at a police station explaining that Jeremy Thorpe had hired a hit man to kill him. Newton was arrested on charges of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life…

Jeremy’s lovely young first wife Caroline had been killed in a car crash in 1970, the last time that Jeremy began panicking seriously… See post ‘Only One Died’.

 

Dannie Abse edited a poetry anthology with Howard Sergeant. Dannie knew A. Alvarez, Sylvia Plath and Ann Sexton; there’s irony for you, Alvarez wrote a famous study of suicide and Plath and Sexton were both wimmin poets who suffered at the hands of Top Doctors, found no resolution to their distress by following the advice of the Top Docs and subsequently killed themselves.

Dannie worked at Central Medical Establishment, which was located opposite the Middlesex Hospital, where Gwynne the lobotomist trained. Gwynne was slightly older than Dannie; Gwynne was of a similar vintage to Wilfred, Dannie’s brother, but the Middlesex concealed Gwynne’s crimes until the day that Gwynne pegged out in 1986 and continued to preserve his reputation years after he snuffed it. Dannie will have been popping in and out of the Middlesex to visit his pals in there.

Dannie Abse lived at Ogmore-by-Sea in south Wales for the last part of his life, but for 30 years he lived in north London/Hampstead area in the thick of the Top Doctors, analysts, writers, comedians, luvvies, BBC folk and Labour Party politicians such as Michael Foot. Dannie will have known about the cottaging and outdoor sex on Hampstead Heath which was infamous, in which Michael Foot participated.

‘Syphilis, syphilis, you’ve got syphilis, Dr Abse told me!’ The whole damn lot of them were at high risk of syphilis.

Hampstead was choc full of professional influential people who knew about Dafydd et al and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Bronwen Pugh, the daughter of Welsh judge Sir Alun Pugh, who later married Bill Astor lived at the family home in Hampstead when she was not at boarding school in Dolgellau. Bronwen’s family lived near Donald Winnicott, the famous analyst! When the Profumo Affair erupted, Bronwen was ousted from polite aristocratic society and denounced as a Welsh slapper who had set out to bag a rich man (see previous posts). So if Bronwen was so unsavoury, why were Sir Alun and his wife invited to Buck House in 1959?

Dannie was in the midst of them throughout it all and Dannie was a leading light in the London Welsh community…

 

 

When Dannie first went to London as a student, he lived in Wandsworth, but only for a short time. If the networker Dannie didn’t know then that Wandsworth was a centre of organised abuse, he’ll have found out at a later stage and he’ll certainly have known by the time that Professor Oliver Brooke of St George’s was busy there by the 1970s, along with Cynthia Payne down the road at Streatham (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’). Dafydd’s mate John Tilley, the Wandsworth Councillor and Council leader who served as the Labour MP for Lambeth Central, DATES, arrived in Wandsworth in the mid-1960s to begin organising on behalf of Dafydd’s gang (see post ‘Lord Snooty The Third). Tilley knew Leo Abse.

After his brief stay in Wandsworth, Dannie moved into London University students’ accommodation at Swiss Cottage, where he lived for the next few years as he frantically cultivated the company of the grander and more famous down the road in Hampstead. After Dannie married, he lived in Belsize Park/Highgate, which is where Graham Chapman lived for years along with his gay partner and John Tomiczek. John was a 14 year old boy in care from Liverpool who had run away when zany Python Graham met him and took him in, although Graham told everyone that John was 17. On paper Graham spoke about his fatherly feelings towards John but people who knew Graham maintained that no, the attraction wasn’t fatherly. Chapman had been picking up underaged boys for sex for years and it was this that was the cause of all those references to Graham being ‘outrageous’ and upfront re being gay. Chapman was a Top Doctor who trained at Bart’s and openly admitted that he exploited this when he was interviewed by the police re his relationship with John. Chapman was an alcoholic who allowed John to drink as much as he liked and John too developed an alcohol problem. John died in 1992. See previous posts.

Graham Chapman died in 1989. After he died, a private memorial service was held at Bart’s, attended by the other Pythons. Including John Cleese, who has taken a keen interest in psychoanalysis for years and is a personal friend of many of the London analysts, including those with links to St George’s Hospital Medical School. See previous posts. The John Cleese who was a fellow traveller of Dr Death’s in the SDP…

Graham Chapman was friendly with David Kirke, a twat of the highest order who was a member of the Dangerous Sports Club – who later went to prison for swindling – and they both knew someone known to me in Somerset who found himself in the possession of a great deal of money in the late 1980s/early 1990s when Dafydd and the gang were in pursuit of my friends and I. See previous posts eg. ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’. Dannie’s circle would have extra cause to worry because by then Patient F had told me much that he remembered from his youth in the 1960s and 70s among rock stars, hippies and artists in Surrey and London. David Hockney! Francis Bacon! Hendrix! Brian Jones! See previous posts.

He’s Sir Mick. His children went to Eton and Mick et al now mix with the best:

Mick Jagger Knighted - Rolling Stone

 

Throughout the 1980s and 90s there was an Empowered Service User, R, in Bethesda who was half starving and half destitute who used to tell us all that she had previously been a groupie who had sex with Mick Jagger. Gwynedd Social Services told concerned citizens who telephoned them desperately worried that one day R would be found dead that R the Empowered Service User was a nuisance and that they couldn’t be bothered with her. I watched R admitted to Ysbyty Gwynedd and then cheerily sent on her way when she very obviously couldn’t look after herself and was homeless anyway. F rang Bethesda Surgery when he witnessed R in distress in Bethesda High Street throwing herself in front of cars. Bethesda Surgery responded with ‘yes we know all about her’. R was left to carry on chucking herself in front of cars.

Wiki estimates Mick’s wealth as $360 million. Translated into Bethesda currency, that is a great deal of money. Can you spare a few pence for R Mick, that is if she is still alive? The social workers who worked for your fellow rocker Gruff Rhys’s dad Ioan Bowen Rees and were paid to look after R treated her appallingly. It was observed that it was as if they were waiting for her to be found dead. Along with all the others. All the others who talked about having sex with famous people. Since when has being a nuisance and talking about one’s ‘delusions’ that one was forced by people known to Dafydd into having sex with famous people been deserving of a death sentence?

R was not called as a witness to the Waterhouse Inquiry. If the rest of us barely knew that it was happening, R definitely won’t have known. That Inquiry took place in Flintshire while the key witnesses sat in the Hergest Unit raising complaint after complaint about the abuse of them and their friends by Gwynedd Social Services and the Top Doctors, only to be repeatedly arrested for ‘harassing’ the thugs who ran the VIP paedophile ring which Ronnie Waterhouse assured everyone did not exist…

Dannie later moved from Belize Park to Golders Green, where his next door neighbour was Bob Monkhouse! Dannie made sure that everyone knew that he lived next door to Bob Monkhouse. The slimeball Bob Monkhouse who had a long-running affair with Diana Dors who was part of ‘gangland culture’ a la Babs Windsor ie. the moll of the sort of gangsters who caused such grief in north Wales. One of the many things that I and other targets of the gang did for light entertainment was to write to Esther’s ‘Hearts Of Gold’ TV programme and ask if Dafydd could appear on ‘Bob’s Full House’ with some patients. We pretended that the letter was from Dafydd’s mole, the Bitch of Bryn Golau, Sister Janice Davies, who told lies about the patients to the police as ordered by Dafydd. Imagine my surprise when I received copies of my medical records years later and there was a copy of our ‘Hearts Of Gold’ application in there. See previous posts.

Ah well Jimmy Savile visited Bryn Estyn and witnessed the sexual abuse of boys there and he also dropped into Ashworth Hospital which was run by Dafydd’s mates whenever he felt like it.

I wrote to Esther supplying her with details of Dafydd and Denbigh before we entered Dafydd for ‘Hearts Of Gold’. I wrote to Esther when she launched her Mental Health Campaign. I did not receive a reply. See post ‘The Compassion Centre’.

I wrote to Marjorie Wallace as well, the ‘mental health campaigner’ who in the late 1980s launched SANE, a charidee dedicated to stopping the closure of asylums. I wrote to Marjorie to tell her that her support for asylums was misguided and dangerous and I gave her details of Dafydd’s crimes. Marjorie did not reply. I had no idea at the time that Marjorie was a friend of Dafydd’s gang, that she was married to a Top Doctor, was shagging numerous paedophiles’ friends on the side and that she only launched SANE to save Dafydd’s bacon as the police at the time were closing in on the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See post ‘One Dangerous Fucker’. Marjorie later hit the jackpot when she had an affair with Ma’am Darling’s ex, Lord Snowdon, the bisexual drug user and client of rent boys who was from a high profile Welsh family containing Top Doctors and lawyers (see previous posts).

Honest police who did move in but who were screwed by establishment corruption: Next time that you almost make it but are faced with a backlash from the gwerin, just contact Brown and I. As two key witnesses who would have cheerfully kicked that lot to death, we would have been delighted to have assisted your investigation. It makes more sense than not warning us that we have been targeted by a gang of killers and repeatedly sending me back into their embrace when Brown and I are continually saying that we really don’t like what is going on and that we’re sure that something terrible is behind it all. You could also stop the gangsters giving people known to me huge quantities of money while I am pushed into destitution. Thanks Police! You know for next time now. Oh but there can’t be a next time, they’ve all died in comfort…

Ah the doctors they were wonderful! And Mrs Mills’ daughter is Chairman of the Parole Board! Bechod!!

 

Dannie’s circle of friends became ever wider. His autobiography mentions that he was pals with Peter Vansittart, the historical novelist who works include ‘Voices From The Great War’ and ‘Voices From the Revolution’ and John Watkins from the LSE.

By the time that Dannie was working as a Nice Young Doctor who was far more interested in making friends with Famous Arty People than doctoring, his sister Huldah was living in New York and his brother Wilfred had also emigrated to the US. Leo was an MP.

A gang of sodding traffickers, not just in this country but around the world, as Nicholas Parsons always stresses re the listeners of ‘Just A Minute’. Which for years starred Clement Freud, a Liberal Party Political Molester and Kenneth Williams who was seriously weird as well.

Now Clement, can you talk for one minute on the subject of ‘How Very Dare You, Of Course There Is No Wrongdoing In High Places, I’ll Sue If You Print A Word..’

Now here’s an interesting extract from David Abse’s biography:

[David’s mum] moved to London as a young woman where she met David’s dad, Dannie. After bringing up three kids, she became a renowned art historian. David’s maternal grandfather (Jack Mercer) had a profound effect on David’s life: He worked as a shop steward for years in the Pilkingtons’ glassworks in St Helens,

Pilkington’s at St Helen’s had strong links with Dafydd’s gang but Pilkington’s subsidiary at St Asaph in north Wales was almost an integral part of Dafydd’s north Wales branch. See previous posts.

but after he retired he went to art school every day for 30 years. He died over 20 years ago, aged 99, still a communist, determined not to get a telegram from the queen.

Despite David’s father’s determination that David should get a “proper job”, David went to Art school in Wolverhampton, and worked for many years in the voluntary sector in the UK – including several years as a union representative, and more years as CEO of Islington Voluntary Actiion Council (IVAC).

Oh dear God, the Abses got together with Margaret ‘Little Nell’ Hodge et al…

After leaving IVAC in 2005 David set up a freelance consultancy business, Toosh, that would still be thriving if not for the bizarre decision of the UK populace to put the Tories in charge of ruining the country.

Do you think that might have had something to do with the nation having had a bellyful of Miranda David? Furthermore, if your dad and his family/mates/whole profession had not been concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring the Tory Party would have imploded in the early 1980s. But then your Uncle Leo would have probably gone to prison along with many others. Including Little Nell.

Throughout these years David continued drawing and painting part time. Six years ago David moved to France, and returned to painting, drawing and printmaking full time.

David didn’t suffer too badly under the yoke of Lord Snooty then.

Plus a bit of writing.: David writes occasionally for L’Artiste and has a regular column in The Hérault Times – and the Aude Times too. He also writes a fascinating blog.

David now lives with his family and cats and dog in a small house in the beautiful village of Bize-Minervois in the Aude. He still thinks of himself as half English, half Welsh, half Jewish and as a Londoner too.

Who happens to live in France.

It is no surprise then that many of David’s paintings focus on issues of identity. Amazingly, David’s son Marley is a maths whizz.

 

The ever-talented Dr Dannie also worked as a medical journalist and wrote in this capacity for the Express. One of Dannie’s scoops was his interview with Prof Paul Niehans and Dr Ana Aslan, for which he travelled to the Eastern Bloc. Niehans and Aslan had claimed to have developed a ‘rejuvenating treatment’ which involved injecting ineffective solutions into people’s faces. Dannie exposed the scoundrels and marvelled at the list of the Rich n Famous – including European Royalty – who had fallen for the scam. At no point in his 91 years, did Dannie Abse ever speak out about the research fraud that he knew so many of his colleagues were conducting, let alone about Dafydd’s ‘sex therapy clinics’ which were a cover for the activities of the sex abuse gang which Dannie’s brother Leo was facilitating.

Dannie was involved with the writers’ organisation PEN and was one of the movers n shakers behind the Poetry and Jazz concerts that were held throughout the 1960s. Wendy Savage the Top Doctor who was famously involved in a civil war with her colleagues at the London Hospital in the 1980s was married to a jazz musician. Wendy knew about Dafydd’s gang and she was friends with Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain who was friends with Ollie Brooke and colluding with the gang in south London as well as with Dafydd’s gang. Wendy was a supporter of the Labour Party and a Feminist. So one wonders why she kept quiet about north Wales, including the unlawful refusal of the Top Docs to provide women with NHS abortions throughout the 1970s and 80s, yet referring any woman who had the dosh to a butcher in Chester who was putting lives at risk and ordering women without money to stay in Denbigh for an ‘assessment’ by Dafydd? See previous posts. Wendy Savage sat on the GMC for years. The years that the GMC failed to take action against Dafydd in the face of so many complaints, the GMC which forged documents to discredit complainants…

 

Anyone remember George Melly, who like Graham Chapman was such a card, ooh he’s honest about his bisexuality you know? In fact Graham Chapman came out as gay on George Melly’s TV show in 1972. George Melly made comments in public regarding his enthusiasm for very young boys and when he stayed in Bangor after doing a turn at Theatre Gwynedd, George Melly offered an underaged boy money in return for sex. How did I know? Because the boy concerned told F, who told me as well as a lot of other people, because F was of the opinion that George Melly should be asked a few questions about that incident. No wonder F encountered such difficulties at the hands of Dafydd and the gwerin. The boy in question was the son of a prison officer whom he hated. He maintained that his father was violent and corrupt and when the boy was a young man he developed a serious drug problem. He was Referred to Dafydd. Of course he was. By the time that this man was in his 30s he was unpleasant by anyone’s standards. F used to avoid him and tell me to avoid him. So we did, but it was another example of a witness who developed such problems that he was isolated and eventually not believed…

I am seriously impressed at the number of witnesses to Dafydd’s wrongdoing who developed drug problems, clocked up criminal records and who encountered friends and partners who gave them endless grief. There are also more than would be expected who found themselves approached by potential suitors with STIs. Nasty STIs as well, HIV and Hep B. How on earth was it happening Dafydd???

‘This service is totally confidential.’

Oh no it isn’t, there is no confidentiality at all in the NHS and social services in north Wales, absolutely none.

 

Dannie knew Jeremy Robson and Boris Pasternak’s sister Lydia Slater. He knew Spike Milligan and Stevie Smith and Laurie Lee, the list of Dannie’s Famous Friends was endless…

In terms of Dannie’s pals who were in the theatre, we should remember that Ronnie Waterhouse had many friends who were luvvies and that the Garrick, one of the hubs of corruption which concealed Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring, was particularly popular with lawyers, judges and luvvies. Ronnie was a member of the Garrick, as was dear old Robin Day and Sir William Mars-Jones and many, many more…See previous posts.

Dannie Abse was a passionate supporter of Cardiff City F.C. He first went to watch them play in 1934 and many of his writings refer to his experiences watching and lifelong love of the team known as “The Bluebirds”. Another finger in another PIE…

Dannie Abse won the Welsh Arts Council Award in both 1971 and 1987 and the Cholmondeley Award in 1985. He was a Fellow of The Royal Society of Literature from 1983. In a foreword to Collected Poems 1948–1976, Abse noted that his poems are increasingly “rooted in actual experience,” both domestic and professional and many display a reconciliation between Jewish and Welsh themes and traditions. While he lived in Hampstead and assisted a pan-European trafficking gang.

For several years Dannie wrote a column for the ‘Hampstead and Highgate Express’. These articles were subsequently published in book form.

In 2005, Dannie’s wife Joan was killed in a car accident, while Dannie suffered a broken rib. Joan went the way of so many who could names names then. Dannie and Leo didn’t die in car crashes or unexpectedly peg out while in the care of the Top Doctors. Dannie lived to 91 years and Leo and Wilfred both hit 90.

Dafydd and Lucille are still going. Unless they’ve pegged out and no-one’s told me.

The Presence’, Dannie’s memoir of the year after his wife died, was published in 2007; it won the 2008 Wales Book Of The Year Award. Bechod!

‘The Presence’ was later dramatised for BBC Radio 4. I expect that Libby Purves reviewed it. And it was probably featured on ‘A Good Read’. Give it a few years and Dannie Abse will be the subject of ‘In Our Time’ with Melvyn Bragg, the MIND ambassador…

Dannie was awarded the Roland Mathias prize for Running Late.

In 2009 Dannie received the Wilfred Owen Poetry Award. Today We Have The Naming of (yet more) Parts, including Dannie Abse. Dannie was a judge for the inaugural 2010 Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine, the ironies of which I blogged about in post ‘The Great Stink’. I didn’t realise when I wrote that post that one of the judges was Mr Big, although I should have predicted it. If Harold Shipman wasn’t six foot under he would be presenting Dannie with his award at the Glittering Ceremony with a Royal guest.

Dannie Abse died on 28 September 2014. ‘Good riddance to bad rubbish’ as F always maintained should be engraved upon Dafydd’s tombstone.

 

There was of course yet another Abse brother whom I have not yet discussed in detail, Wilfred, the man who told Dannie to become a Top Doctor and qualify at Westminster Medical School because ‘Westminster is the best medical school in the world’. Ah the Abses were committed socialists who were right behind Nye! Wilfred, who dispensed crucial advice re syphilis so that the rest of the clan could point at other people saying ‘neh neh neh, you’ve got the pox’…

‘Ewe know some of those kids in the homes were wild oooh ewe know there was one there who had VD at 15, ooh Dr DA was good to them ewe know, no-one else would have had time for them…’

 

David Wilfred Abse (15 March 1915 – 4 November 2005) was born in Cardiff. He did of course go to Westminster Medical School. During and after WW II, Wilfred served in the RAMC. God help anyone who had caught a dose. In 1941, Wilfred participated in the examination of the Rudolf Hess – oh the ironies just never stop – who had been captured in Scotland during an unsuccessful peace mission. Wilfred was later stationed in India, eventually rising to the rank of Major.

After Westminster, Wilfred became a psychoanalyst. Dannie’s book mentions that Wilfred worked at Pen-y-Fal Hospital at Abergavenny. Pen-y-Fal was the asylum at Abergavenny and like all the asylums at the time, Pen-y-Fal contained a good many patients who had pissed off the big wigs as well as patients who for various reasons could not look after themselves. Dannie describes visiting Wilfred at Pen-y-Fal with their mum – like many asylum docs at the time Wilfred lived on site – and Mrs A being horrified at the language used by many of the patients and marvelling that her Wilfred could ever tolerate being among such animals. I’ve got news for Mrs A. A great deal of swearing does go among Empowered Service Users, but the Top Docs and Angels swear like troopers as well, but not in front of people like Mrs Abse.  Empowered Service Users also get to the stage where They Don’t Give A Stuff after years of complaining through the appropriate channels about being abused and assaulted, only to see their complaints investigated by the friends of those of whom they have complained and dismissed as lies of the delusions of a lunatic. There is also a variant of Empowered Service User who Takes The Piss. I was one of them and I was friends with others. One such person was Peter Webb in Denbigh. Like the rest of us, Peter had been illegally imprisoned after a previous stint of being illegally imprisoned. Peter was a good friend to me in Denbigh and reassured me that ‘it is too late for crying’, we needed to torment these bastards. So we did.

Peter rang the police from the only patients’ pay phone and told them that we were being abused and were illegally imprisoned. The police rang the Angels who stormed the room with the phone in it – Peter and I were still in there playing dominos – and they threw us out and locked the room. By that time, another patient, Stephen, had found some loose tablets lying around on the floor in the phone room, so Stephen took the tablets.

‘There are the strictest precautions taken at all times with medication.’

No there aren’t, when F was in Denbigh he purchased class A drugs from a patient who had been given the drugs by Dafydd. F was flogged the drugs in full view of the Angels.

So there we were on the loose in the day room. Peter swore mildly and the Charge Nurse Mike Williams told Peter that he wouldn’t tolerate bad language. While Mike assisted a gang of paedophiles in illegally imprisoning their victims. Then some visitors of a highly offensive petit bourgeois patient arrived and Peter heard them remark that he looked like a tramp. Of course he did, Peter had been illegally imprisoned for three weeks and had not been offered a change of clothes. I witnessed Peter repeatedly ask the Angels if he could have a clean shirt and they simply replied that they didn’t have any spare clothes. So Peter walked up to the petit bourgeois visitors and said to them very politely ‘Why don’t you all fuck off?’

Mike Williams attacked Peter and dragged him into the male dorms, locking him in there. The petit bourgeois ones looked on, marvelling at the Appalling Behaviour Of The Loonies. The petit bourgeois woman was only in Denbigh for 36 hours or so, none of us knew who she was but she was vile. She hurled abuse at us all and pointed at Stephen and screamed at an Angel ‘you needn’t think that I’m staying in here with people like THAT’. So I said to the petit bourgeois woman ‘you’re very petit bourgeois aren’t you?’. She screamed at me that I was a bitch and a slut no less and another patient said to me ‘ooh are you a Marxist?’ Stephen then walked up to the petit bourgeois woman with a packet of cigarettes and said ‘do you want a fag luv?’

The petit bourgeois woman kept telling people that she was a ‘personal friend of Dr Dafydd Alun Jones’s former wife’ and I sat there marvelling that anyone would ever boast of any such link with Dafydd. Which ex-wife I have no idea, Dafydd has been divorced four times so there are quite a few of his ex-wives cluttering up north Wales. Being a friend of Dafydd’s ex-wife was obviously useful in north Wales though, because the petit bourgeois woman was released very quickly with Angels toadying to her and ignoring the poisonous insults and threats to which she was subjecting the rest of us.

 

Wilfred Abse was just a few years older than Gwynne the lobotomist and Wilfred knew Gwynne and Dafydd. Wilfred knew about the trafficking ring and was fully on board with it and there will have been victims of the gang languishing in Pen-y-Fal Hospital. No wonder they were swearing. I am wondering if Rudolf Abse and his cinema were already involved up to their necks with organised abuse in south Wales which was why George Thomas was so nice to the Abse boys and their circle of Jewish friends when he taught them. Dannie tells stories of family life when they were young and of his parents saying ‘Leo will be Prime Minister one day’. All families of course have such memories but the Abses took themselves very seriously and were rapacious with it. Wilfred ordered Dannie to study medicine and then arranged a medical school place for Dannie years in advance; when Dannie wanted to leave medical school, Leo and dad were livid and pressurised him to stay. Dannie wasn’t just overwhelmed by a sudden whim, he was not interested in medicine or in his patients and he wasn’t any good at it either. He nearly failed most exams but was allowed to pass because in that era, everyone was allowed to pass. Dannie was a luvvie and he liked hanging out with luvvies especially famous ones. But the Abses wanted doctors and lawyers and politicians in their family. Such people are very useful if there is a rapidly expanding trafficking ring and crime syndicate to be serviced.

Wilfred didn’t remain on his home turf with Gwynne and Dafydd for long. Wilfred the Psychoanalyst hit the big time when he emigrated to the US to become Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Wilfred spent the greater part of his career as Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia, 1962-80. Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Wilfred as known for his work in group therapy and hysteria and contributed to the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease.

Wilfred’s work in group analysis was influenced by S.H. Foulkes (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’), who was in London at the same time as Wilfred Abse, along with a wider group of analysts who all used their work to conceal their own wrongdoing and to discredit anyone who raised concerns. It was Brown critiquing this discredited nonsense after I raised concerns about Gwynne that upset the Top Doctors so much. This was Gwynne and Dafydd, even if the theory had not have been discredited – which it most certainly had – those two could hardly have been relied upon to have known how to use it to assist their patients. Talk to honest, thoughtful analysts and they will admit that there is and has been a very big problem with analysts abusing and exploiting their patients and also their trainees. Gwynne, Dafydd and the Abses ran a trafficking ring and that was their only interest.

I invite readers to have a laugh at Wilfred’s Great Works:

The diagnosis of hysteria (Williams and Wilkins, Baltimore, 1950); Speech and reason: language disorder in mental disease (John Wright, Bristol, 1971); Clinical notes on group-analytic psychotherapy (University Press of Virginia, Charlottesille, 1974); Marital & sexual counselling in medical practice, edited by D. Wilfred Abse, Ethel M. Nash, Lois M.R. Louden (Harper & Row, Medical Dept., Hagerstown, 2nd edition, 1974); Hysteria and Related Mental Disorders : an approach to psychological medicine (Wright, Bristol, 1987).

Ooh Dr Wilfred, my wandering womb is playing up, what do you suggest?? Sex with Dafydd probably, knowing that lot.

I look forward to hearing Hillary or Michelle on the ‘Today’ programme next week.

Get out of this one then Cherie.

As Cerys Matthews, the daughter of a Top Doctor who was In On All Of It, sung in the midst of the huge co-ordinated attempt to eclipse the Waterhouse Inquiry with Patriotic Welsh Rock (see post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’), ‘Everyday when I wake up I thank the Lord I’m Welsh’. I carried on hanging out with Welsh people long after Cerys had pissed off to the US. Along with so many others who were maxing out on their Welshness when they lived in Hampstead or America… Er, anywhere other than Bethesda Cerys and Gruff??? Because Gruff’s dad has destroyed the place… Gruff’s dad died in 1999, just before the Waterhouse Report was published. Bethesda still hasn’t recovered from Ioan Bowen Rees and the Top Doctors.

 

O Jones, O Jones. But which Jones?

Raising a Flag Over the Reichstag’, by Yevgeny Khaldei.

Britain In Agony

I have recently read Alan Watkins’s book ‘A Slight Case Of Libel: Meacher v Trelford and Others’, about the 1988 libel trial that resulted when Michael Meacher sued ‘The Observer’ over an article that they had published about Meacher in October 1983. Meacher sued ‘The Observer’ because they published a piece written by Alan Watkins which questioned Meacher’s claim to be the son of a farm labourer and told the readers that Meacher’s father was an accountant. It transpired that Meacher’s father had been an accountant, but had at one point indeed worked on a farm, but that farm was a farmed owned by famille Meacher. Meacher lost the libel case, appealed, but subsequently dropped the appeal.

Michael Meacher has featured on this blog before (see post ‘A Vintage Crop’). In the 1980s he was the darling of much of the left of the Labour Party and was perceived to be a potential credible leader from the left. Tony Benn had been savaged so badly and for so long by the media that he had been quite damaged in the process, although he did have a following. Meacher was framed as being a Sensible Rational MP on the left ie. not mad with staring eyes like Wedgie Benn.

Meacher’s special interest was in welfare and he was a most enthusiastic griller of Tory Ministers in this area. I explained in my post ‘A Vintage Crop’ that Meacher knew about Dafydd and the associated gangs, he knew about the serious criminality in north Wales and he never uttered a word. Meacher was a graduate of New College, Oxford, a favourite recruiting ground for the British security services and an institution that has produced many people on the left in political life who concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al and the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see post ‘A Study In Tyranny’), as well as the LSE. Scores of people who colluded with Dafydd et al and who were even directly involved in the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal or who concealed it, were themselves LSE graduates.

Before being elected as MP for Oldham West in 1970, Meacher lectured in  Social Administration at York University and then at the LSE.  He also served as the Chairman of the Hull branch of the ASTMS, the union led by Clive Jenkins. ASTMS represented many professional and managerial staff in the NHS who were not Top Doctors and it evolved into MSF. See eg. post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’. It was a deeply corrupt union and I witnessed at first hand when I worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School how the MSF reps concealed and colluded with criminality and patient harm and used their knowledge of this for personal benefit, even their knowledge of the trafficking gang linked to Dafydd et al in north Wales which was facilitated by St George’s. See previous posts. Jenkins was hated by many for being the ultimate in trade union baron hypocrisy; when I was growing up among Tories in Somerset and hearing all about the sins of trade union leaders with their snouts in the trough it was Clive Jenkins who was usually being discussed. Jenkins wasn’t very popular on the left either, but he was very successful in mobilising middle class people. Jenkins boasted that one of his hobbies was organising the middle classes and I suspect that the reason why the union movement today represents the oppressed Top Doctors, Angels, social workers, teachers, lecturers and public service managers rather than people on zero hours contracts or those cleaning offices at 2 am is at least partly a result of the efforts of Lord Clive Jenkins. He was a smug twat, a smug twat from south Wales and furthermore he was the smug twat who was substantially responsible for the Windbag becoming Leader of the Labour Party. Jenkins knew all about the victims of Dafydd et al and he knew about those who were really dispossessed but he wasn’t interested in them. See previous posts eg. ‘I Warn You…’ for more information on Clive Jenkins.

Hull was on the patch of a trafficking ring with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales, so with Meacher being Chairman of Clive Jenkins’s Hull outpost, Meacher was a man who could have expected to go far.

In 1969 Meacher wrote a pamphlet for the Fabian Society, ‘The Care Of Old People’. The institutional care of the elderly at the time was a disgrace and indeed the brutal, dehumanising abuse of the elderly at Ely Hospital, Cardiff erupted in a national scandal in 1969. In its defence Ely Hospital stated that things were even worse at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh but no-one was complaining about that… See previous posts eg. ‘All The Ingredients Of A Scandal…’.

After writing that Fabian Society pamphlet, Meacher never returned to the subject of the care of the elderly again, because he knew just how grim the situation was throughout the entire UK and he did not dare blow the lid off. Michael Meacher certainly wasn’t going to expose Dafydd or let anybody else expose Dafydd either. Meacher had plenty of opportunities to take a shot at Dafydd and the gang, particularly as he was a junior Minister in the DHSS under Barbara Castle, 1975-76, Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Social Security, 1983-87 and Shadow Secretary of State for Social Services, 1989-92. Instead Meacher, like those other Health Ministers under Castle, David Ennals and Dr Death and indeed Castle herself, colluded with Dafydd et al. See previous posts. Dr Death personally knew some of Dafydd’s Top Doc pals in north Wales and elsewhere.

When the Windbag became Leader of the Labour Party in Oct 1983, Meacher ran as a candidate for the Deputy Leadership. The others who ran for the Deputy Leadership were also all concealing Dafydd’s criminality: Fattersley (see post ‘I Warn You…’), Denzil Davies (see post ‘How Much Greater Is A Man than A Sheep?’) and Gwyneth Dunwoody (see previous posts). Dafydd’s colleague Dr Tony Francis knew the Windbag from their time as students in Cardiff and of course the Windbag’s wife had grown up in Holyhead, where her parents and parents’ friend the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79, Lord Cledwyn, had kept the lid on Dafydd and Dafydd’s predecessor Gwynne the lobotomist since the Dark Ages. See previous posts eg. ‘The Cradle Of Filth’ and ‘How Much Greater Is A Man Than a Sheep?’. The abusive social workers of Gwynedd and Clwyd must have been delighted at the prospect of their old mucker Meacher from the LSE being Deputy Leader of the Labour Party with the Windbag as Leader. No wonder they constantly explained the dangers of The Cuts to everyone, while delivering kids in care to provide sexual services to Fatcher’s friends and Gov’t Ministers in Fatcher’s Britain.

The union NUPE, which represented many social workers and and other staff involved with the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and other child abuse scandals, supported the Windbag for the leadership and Meacher for the deputy leadership. One social worker whom NUPE refused to support although she was a paid-up member was Alison Taylor. Jeremy Corbyn had worked for NUPE before he was elected as the MP for Islington North in 1983 and Jezza remained on excellent terms with NUPE after he became an MP; Jezza sat as a member of Haringey Council, 1974-83. Dafydd’s gang had links to the trafficking gang that was operating in Haringey Council as well as in Islington’s children’s homes at the time.

In 1983 Mary Wynch had begun suing Dafydd et al and Brown began receiving murder threats from the gang. When I told my tutor at UCNW and Dr D.G.E. Wood, the GP in the Student Health Centre at UCNW – who was facilitating Dafydd’s gang but I didn’t know that then – about the threats to Brown I was ignored. I knew of other students who were being targeted by the gang who told tutors at UCNW as well as Wood and they were ignored too.

Previous posts eg. ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’ and ‘A Local Boy Made Good’ described how Brown and I had bizarre and distressing experiences with people whom Brown had met through the small ads in ‘New Statesman’, to which Brown had responded when he was in search of a bit of extra work. I have been told that these people were members of the security services who had targeted us, the security services having placed us under surveillance. The ‘New Statesman’ at the time was required reading for people interested in Labour politics and it was the butt of ‘Private Eye’ spoof articles with titles like ‘Whither The Town Halls?’ and ‘Town Halls In Crisis’. I never bothered with the ‘Whither The Town Halls?’ articles in the ‘New Statesman’ because I thought that they were mind-numbingly boring, but had I realised that the Town Halls were in crisis because so many local politicians were  partners in a people trafficking business with those from whom we were receiving so much grief in north Wales, I’d have taken rather more notice of them.

Brown, I and our friends did try getting involved with leftist politics when we were young, but we all gave up because the whole field seemed to be dominated by such unpleasant mad people who were doing anything but working on behalf of those having a hard time. They were of course being led by those whom I have named on this blog…

‘New Statesman’ was dominated politically by people like Meacher – indeed when Richard Crossman was Editor, he grumbled about being assailed with unsolicited articles from Michael Meacher and his wife Molly. People like the sociologist Peter Townshend were on the Board of ‘New Statesman’ in those days; Townsend and Brian Abel-Smith had followed in the footsteps of Richard Titmuss at the LSE as left-leaning academics researching disadvantage and poverty (see previous posts). They all knew about the organised abuse and neglect of people at the very bottom of the heap by the welfare state but they refused to ever publish a word about it, even when gangs of organised criminals preying on kids in care and vulnerable patients became a huge problem in the 1970s. One was not allowed to level one word of criticism at the NHS and social services, even if one was a witness to the most serious wrongdoing.

The other group of people who wielded great influence over the ‘New Statesman’ was the cultural arm of the left, whom Brown had much contact with because of his academic interests. Since I began this blog, I have been given information that even the most Revered and Right-On of those cultural critics – and the most powerful – Professor Stuart Hall, worked very hard to shaft Brown because Brown was frighteningly able, was a witness to what was happening in north Wales and wouldn’t abandon Empowered Service Users. See post ‘Life In Cold Blood’.

It was the ‘New Statesman’ who in 1996 published Richard Webster’s libellous article about Alison Taylor, ‘Can A Whistle-blower Be Wrong?’ At the time, the ‘New Statesman’ was owned by Geoffrey Robinson, who has been the Labour MP for Coventry West since 1976. It was Robinson who in 1998 had to resign from his Gov’t post, along with Mandy, over the business of that loan for Mandy’s mortgage. Dafydd’s gang had links in Coventry and Dr Colin Berry, a Top Doctor from Walsgrave Hospital, Coventry was involved in covering up Dafydd’s criminality in 1989. Alison Taylor successfully sued the ‘New Statesman’ – she represented herself – and it was admitted that they had published Webster’s article after assuming that Alison would not be able to afford to sue them for libel. See previous posts.

 

In spite of all his efforts, Michael Meacher didn’t become Deputy Leader of the Labour Party. Fattersley triumphed instead and thus the nation was offered the chance of voting for the Dream Ticket in the next General Election. Which was in June 1987. This was the result:

 

Former British PM Margaret Thatcher dies at 87 | Globalnews.ca

 

In June 1983, a barrister called Tony Blair was elected as the Labour MP for Sedgefield. Miranda had been a pupil barrister of George Carman QC, who knew about Dafydd et al and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Carman had defended Jeremy Thorpe when Thorpe stood trial for incitement to kill and conspiracy in 1979. Miranda’s wife Cherie was a barrister who worked in Carman’s Chambers until 1988. Cherie grew up in Crosby in Liverpool, an area with a sizeable Catholic population where many of the corrupt professional people who colluded with Dafydd’s empire in Liverpool lived. See post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’. Cherie and her family were/are faithful Catholics. There was a major problem in Liverpool with organised abuse in children’s homes and other institutions, including those run by Liverpool Catholic Social Services. Many of those involved in the abuse had links to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. See previous posts eg. ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’.

Cherie’s dad was the actor Tony Booth, the Scouse Git who hung out with the famous faces of stage and screen of the 60s and 70s and eventually married Elsie Tanner of ‘Coronation Street’ fame. Tony Booth was active in the Labour Party  and was also notorious as a shagger. Dafydd’s gang had links to the circle that Tony Booth hung out with. See previous posts eg. ‘Workers’ Play Time’ and ‘My Arse – It’s Tatifilarious’. Cherie’s friend and colleague Michael Beloff QC was the son of Lord Max Beloff, who was mates with Ioan Bowen Rees, the County Secretary of Gwynedd County Council, 1974-81 and Gwynedd’s Chief Executive, 1981-91, while the paedophile gang made merry in the children’s homes in Gwynedd. In 1996, Michael Beloff was the legal adviser for Municipal Mutual, the insurers of both Clwyd County Council and the North Wales Police and it was Beloff who ensured that no-one except lawyers and insurers saw the Jillings Report into the abuse of children in care in Clwyd when the Report was completed in 1996. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’

One of the Directors of Municipal Mutual at the time was Lord Merlyn-Rees. See post ‘I Predict A Riot’. Merlyn Rees was born in Pontypridd, south Wales, was elected as the Labour MP for Leeds South, 1963-83 and then Morley and Leeds South, 1983-92. At the heart of the land of Savile, a corrupt police force and a huge paedophile gang with links to the gangs in Wales. Merlyn Rees was Secretary of State for N Ireland, 1974-76, under Wilson and then Callaghan, in which post Merlyn Rees concealed the VIP paedophile ring which was based at Kincora Boys’ Home, which, it has been repeatedly alleged, included Sir Anthony Blunt and Lord Louis Mountbatten. Rees was Home Secretary, 1977-79, under the Windbag’s mate PM Jim Callaghan. In which capacity Merlyn Rees concealed all that serious crime caused by Dafydd and the gang.

 

Michael Meacher’s first wife Molly – they divorced in 1987 and Michael Meacher married again in 1988 – was educated at York and London Universities and qualified as a social worker in 1980. She then worked as a social worker in north London. Molly Meacher was Director of Information for the National Association of Citizens Advice Bureaux; Lucille Hughes has been involved with the senior management of the CAB for years and Ronnie Waterhouse was also involved with the CAB (see previous posts). Molly Meacher subsequently married Lord Richard Layard, the LSE Professor who was behind the ‘happiness nation’ idiocy, which goes neatly in hand with Professor Mark Williams’s Mindfulness, which was invented by Williams when he worked with Dafydd’s gang in Bangor in the 1980s (see previous posts).

Destitute and suicidal? It’s your own fault suckers, you’re not thinking in the right way and furthermore you are responsible for your own happiness!!! No, there is no key worker available this week, they’re all at a Mindfulness retreat doing their Training, at the agreeable Trigonos Centre in Cwm Nantlle, at the edge of the lake, eating healthy nutritious meals of organic veg, followed by a lovely glass of wine in the evening. So it’s your choice if you kill yourself in your hard-to-let flat on the council estate in Caernarfon or Bangor, you must Take Responsibility. When the key workers have finished their Mindfulness Training at Trigonos, they’ll be off to Dr David Crossley’s All Wales Psychotherapy Network Training Session, held at a nice hotel someone where in mid-Wales, where they will receive lectures and seminars on Compassionate Therapy.

Want to know why the outrageous scam that was David Crossley’s Training Sessions came to an end??? Because when Merfyn Jones was Chairman of the Betsi, he and his CEO Mary Burrows stopped the NHS funding for those troughing bastards’ jollies, so the freebies in hotels for the associates of a gang of paedophiles ended. Crossley et al told everyone that Merfyn and Mary had placed Clients In Danger by Cutting Essential Training.

Baroness Molly Meacher has been/is: Board member, Deputy Chair and then Acting Chair of the ineffective Police Complaints Authority, 1994-2002; Chair of the East London and City Mental Health Trust from 2004; Chair of the Clinical Ethics Committee of the Central and North West London NHS Trust, 2002-08; Chair of East London NHS Foundation Trust, 2007-12; President of the Haemophilia Society; Chair of Dignity in Dying; Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Drug Reform Policy. Molly Meacher has also worked for the Mental Health Foundation. So Molly has spent many years in the bosom of the abuse and neglect of Empowered Service Users. But Molly was off to a flying start early in her career. In 1979 Molly authored ‘New Methods of Mental Health Care’. Well those new methods worked a treat didn’t they. Most appropriately in 1991 Molly authored ‘The Mentally Disordered Offender’ – presumably when she noticed all those mentally ill people in prison for bizarre and trivial offences. Or having simply been framed. It was in 1991 that Tony Francis and Dafydd and the gang worked so hard to try and have me jailed; I even had to go all the way down to the Royal Courts of Justice at The Strand from Bethesda (see previous posts). Documents now in my possession show that the MDU and Tony Francis’s lawyers knew that Francis et al had perjured themselves.

Meet the gangsters’ Moll:

The Baroness Meacher aka Lady Layard
Official portrait of Baroness Meacher crop 2.jpg

 

After Michael Meacher and the Moll divorced in 1987, Michael Meacher married again in 1988, during the libel trial, to Lucianne Sawyer, a physiotherapist. The Meachers have certainly done well out of the NHS.

 

Alan Watkins’s book concentrates on the intricacies of Meacher’s attempt to sue ‘The Observer’ for libel, but there is much interesting information in Watkins’s book about Meacher and others. By the time of the libel trial, Meacher had ended up in hot water as a result of a questionnaire that Meacher had sent out to all the Labour members of District and Regional Health Authorities in the UK in Aug 1984, when Meacher was Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Social Services, ie. the Labour Party’s chief spokesman for health and social services.

By Aug 1984 Brown and I had raised our deepest concerns with regard to the conduct of Gwynne the lobotomist and I had written to the GMC and Professor Eric Sunderland, the Principal of UCNW. The Chair of the GMC at the time was the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Lord John Walton, who was fully on board with Gwynne and Dafydd’s gang (see previous posts) and Eric Sunderland was a well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend who was also a fully paid-up umbrella of Dafydd et al, but I didn’t realise that until recently. See previous posts. By Aug 1984, Mary Wynch was on her way to the Master of the Rolls re her legal case against Dafydd and the gang. Alison Taylor had blown the whistle on the abuse of kids in care in Gwynedd and had already appeared before one formal disciplinary hearing.

 

Meacher had written to all the Labour members of Health Authorities regarding the ‘blatant political bias’ within the membership of some District Health Authorities and Regional Health Authorities – Meacher maintained that the Tories were packing Health Authorities with their mates – and he also complained about the Top Doctors lobbying. Top Doctors do indeed lobby, they ruthlessly dictate to Gov’ts of all hues what that Gov’t will do and make it clear that if orders aren’t followed, Fings Break. The Top Docs were busy fighting Thatch and Ken Clarke (Minister of Health under Secretary of State Norman Fowler at the time) and how the Windbag wanted the support of the Top Doctors!!! The Windbag knew as well as I did that although a few Top Doctors are a pale shade of pink – as long as they remain highly paid that is – a great many of those at the top of the profession are True Blues and very, very greedy. They were not going to vote for the Windbag and furthermore many of them were/are the most ferocious social and intellectual snobs. Thick Windbag, the boyo from the Valleys? No, they weren’t going to go for that, no matter how far the Windbag pushed the boat out to help Tony Francis et al.

It was around the time that Meacher sent those questionnaires out and in the following months that much of the ‘evidence’ of the degenerate Stormy Daniels-style life led by me, Brown and my friends was collected by Dafydd’s gang, as detailed in previous posts and the comments following posts eg. ‘Meet The Gwerin!’ and ‘On The Occasion Of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’. The orgies, the drugs, etc. One wonders how we had time to do well in our finals and pursue postgrad work.

By Aug 1984 I had been referred to Dr Tony Francis who, while doing everything possible to reassure me that he was supportive, was actually in on everything that Dafydd’s gang were doing and had only relocated to north Wales in the early 1980s from the team of Dafydd’s associates at Manchester University in response to the distress flares being sent up by Dafydd and the north Wales contingent in the wake of Mary Wynch’s litigation. Francis too was collecting ‘evidence’ to demonstrate that I – as well as other witnesses – could not be believed.

Does the Windbag know anything about the smear campaign that was conducted by his mate Tony Francis against complainants re the criminality in north Wales?

Michael Meacher, despite being of the left, voted for the Windbag in the Labour leadership election of 1983, not for Eric Heffer, the left wing candidate. Although Heffer and his wife Doris were doing Dafydd’s gang a great many favours themselves over in their constituency of Walton, Liverpool (see post ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’).

 

Meacher’s questionnaire and accompanying letter asked the recipients to liaise with other Labour supporters on the Health Authority; perform an analysis of how The Cuts had affected the NHS in their area; gather politically useful case histories – how about the case history of that young woman and her mates in north Wales who’d complained about a lobotomist who was running a paedophile gang then Meacher??? – and to provide the contact details of one Labour member of the authority with whom Michael Meacher could liaise regularly. Meacher urged Labour Health Authority members to ‘develop socialist principles for health care’.

I have provided many examples on this blog of the paedophiles’ friends being at each others throats in spite of having the capacity to unite in the face of the enemy ie. the Empowered Service Users. One such paedophiles’ friend who hit the roof when he received what he considered to be the highly intrusive and inappropriate questionnaire from Michael Meacher was the Chairman of Islington Health Authority, Eric Moonman, who had previously been a Labour MP.

Eric Moonman (29 April 1929 – 22 December 2017) was the Labour MP for Billericay, 1966–70 and Basildon, 1974–79. Moonman was educated at Liverpool and Manchester Universities and became a senior research fellow in the Department of Management Science at Manchester University. He was a Councillor on Stepney Borough Council, serving as Council Leader until 1965 and then on the London Borough of Tower Hamlets from 1964.

There was organised abuse of children in Stepney as long ago as the 1960s and when Dafydd went into business big time, kids from Tower Hamlets were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. This was concealed by numerous politicians and others in public life, including Ian Mikardo, Peter Shore, Sir Robin Wales and Lord Elwyn-Jones See previous posts.

Moonman contested Chigwell in 1964 without success and was elected for Billericay in the 1966 General Election, losing the seat four years later. He then was elected for Basildon at the February 1974 election, but again lost his seat in 1979. After his second electoral defeat, Moonman pursued an academic career and became Professor of Management at City University, London and a visiting Professor at the University of Liverpool.

Dafydd trained at Liverpool Medical School and Liverpool University was heaving with members of Dafydd’s network who were fully on board with him, particularly those people working in medicine, law and the social sciences.

Moonman was Chair of Poale Zion (Great Britain) and President of the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.

Eric Moonman was born in Liverpool in 1929. He attended Rathbone School in Liverpool, leaving at the age of 13 to begin a seven-year apprenticeship at WJ Pugh Printers and then the ‘Liverpool Echo’. After WW II, Moonman undertook his national service in the King’s Liverpool Regiment, 1951-53, during which he took courses in military studies as well as evening classes in subjects such as public speaking. In 1954 he gained a place at the University of Liverpool to study for a Diploma in Social Science which he was awarded in 1955.

Dafydd and Lucille were students at Liverpool University in the mid-1950s. Lucille did her social work training at Liverpool University.

At Liverpool, Moonman edited the University magazine and became Chairman of the Labour Society.

In June 1967, the Foreign Secretary George Brown made a speech to the UN General Assembly on the Israel-Arab Conflict. Moonman was one of a number of Labour MPs to accuse Brown of “taking sides” against Israel. At a Jewish ex-servicemen’s rally in Southend, Moonman called Brown’s speech a “serious embarrassment” and said he had “aggressively departed” from the Gov’t’s neutral policy, giving “harsh and arrogant advice” to the Israelis.

In 1972 Moonman was at the World Jewish Congress in Switzerland. He approached Stephen Roth, then Director of the European Jewish Congress and told him that changes had to be made in the way that Israel represented itself abroad. Roth accordingly gave him permission to start up a commission on Israel. In 1974, Moonman convened the first gathering of Jewish professionals to work out propaganda strategies.

Stephen John Roth (April 21, 1908 – July 11, 1974) was a US District Judge of the US District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. Roth studied at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Michigan Law School. He entered private practice in Michigan, 1935 -37 and would subsequently return to private practice in Michigan, 1939-41, in 1943, from 1945-48 and from 1950-52. He was an Assistant Prosecutor in Genesee County, Michigan, 1937-38. Roth was the Prosecutor for Genesee County, 1941-42. He served as a second lieutenant in the US Army, 1942-45. He was the Attorney General of Michigan, 1949-50. He was a Judge of the Michigan Circuit Court, 1952-62.

Roth was nominated by President John F. Kennedy on April 19, 1962, to a seat on the US District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. He was confirmed by the US Senate on May 1, 1962, and received his commission on May 7, 1962. His service terminated on July 11, 1974, due to his death.

Milliken v. Bradley (1974) was a significant case heard by Roth. A suit by the NAACP charging that the Detroit, Michigan public school system was racially segregated as a result of official policies was filed against Michigan Governor William Milliken. After reviewing the case and concluding the system was segregated, Roth ordered the adoption of a desegregation plan that encompassed eighty-five outlying school districts. The US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit affirmed the metropolitan plan.

I note that Stephen Roth was born in Hungary in the early years of the 20th century. I am fairly sure that he is a relative of the psychiatrist Sir Martin Roth – a brother perhaps? – who was born in Hungary in 1917. Martin Roth ended his career as Professor – and then Emeritus Prof – of Psychiatry at Cambridge University, but Roth had previously enjoyed many other roles in which he proffered lifelong protection to Dafydd and the gang. Martin Roth, in the early 1970s, single-handedly raised the funds for the newly created Royal College of Psychiatrists to acquire a grandiose building in Belgravia as their home, when the Royal College had barely two pennies to rub together. It is known that Roth raised the dosh by somehow persuading Marks and Spencer to give them a huge loan on very favourable terms. The Royal College quietly moved out of the palatial Belgravia residence some years later, having encountered serious financial problems. I have not found out why M&S were so generous to a man and his colleagues who were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring, but the fact that Roth et al were concealing wrongdoing in high places was undoubtedly the explanation for the generosity of M&S. A possible candidate being the key to this is Woy Jenkins, who not only concealed Dafydd et al and the Westminster Paedophile Ring but was Chancellor of the Exchequer, Home Secretary (twice), President of the European Commission and Chancellor of Oxford University. He was Home Secretary when Bryn Estyn was run by the Home Office. Woy was from south Wales and known to be a bisexual swinger who admitted this in interviews but refused to name those with whom  he was having affairs. Had Woy been an honest man, I would argue that his privacy should have been respected, but Woy was concealing serious organised crime and a pan-European trafficking ring which targeted children and murdered witnesses. One doesn’t really want that in a Home Secretary. See post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’ for more info about Woy.

Miranda always maintained that Woy was his mentor.

See post ‘The Newcastle-upon-Tyne Connection’ for further details re Martin Roth.

Here’s the man to whom they were all so indebted:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

 

The group of Jewish professionals convened by Moonman subsequently met twice every year, once in Europe in the summer and once in Jerusalem in the autumn. Moonman was “the founder and guiding light” of the organisation which became the West European Public Relations Group for Information on Behalf of Israel. The group was initially funded by the World Jewish Congress which later withdrew its funding. From 1980 it was funded instead by the World Zionist Organisation and from 1985 also by the Israel Foreign Ministry. The Register of Members’ Interests 1975/6 records that Moonman visited a conference in Brussels in February 1976, which was probably the winter meeting of the West European Public Relations Group for Information on Behalf of Israel. The register records that Moonman was there as a representative of the Parliamentary Committee for the release of Soviet Jewry.

By 1975, Moonman was Chairman of the Zionist Federation of Great Britain. In August that year Moonman met with the Home Secretary Woy Jenkins to protest against the planned visit to London by two members of the Palestinian National Council (the political wing of the PLO). Moonman criticised the visit as “an attempt to become respectable”. He added “we demean ourselves as human beings if at a convenient point of time we overlook the track record of these people”. 

Anyone for looking at the track record of Dafydd and Woy? Or indeed of Islington Health Authority, the members of whom knew what was happening to the kids in children’s homes in Islington.

Jeremy Corbyn was a member of a District Health Authority before he became an MP, but I don’t know which one.

 

In June 1977, ‘The Sunday Times’ published a front-page story and a four-page ‘Insight’ investigation reporting the alleged torture of Palestinian prisoners in the occupied territories. The Israeli Embassy in London called the assertions a “vicious slander as it is insulting to the only democracy and free judiciary in the area”. Moonman made three complaints about the reports to the Press Council, complaining that unproved accusations were reported as facts, that the paper misled readers with unsubstantiated quotes and headlines and that Israel was denied the opportunity to comment before publication. His complaints were rejected.

In 1981, a broadcast by the Israeli Radio Peace and Progress (summarised by the BBC) referred to Moonman as one of several “leaders of the Zionist organizations in Britain”; although it is not clear if this referred to the West European Public Relations Group for Information on Behalf of Israel or another organisation. The broadcast reported that Moonman had “explained his” opposition to  Menachem Begin in an article in The Jewish Chronicle, wherein Moonman argued that: “We must support Israel, but we must give consideration to the image of the Israel which we support. It is clear that Israel’s Western allies are less and less interested in supporting Begin’s Israel”.

In 1985, Moonman forced the Editor of the ‘Jewish Quarterly’ to resign. According to his successor Colin Shindler: “The offence had been caused by a ‘Jewish Quarterly editorial which questioned the actual dangers of anti-Semitism today as popularly viewed by Jewish leadership”.

A 1986 report in ‘The Guardian’ refers to Moonman as “chairman of the research committee of the Board of Deputies of British Jews” and Moonman’s profile in Debrett’s People of Today states that that year he was appointed senior Vice-President. At this stage, Moonman was also a board member of the British-Israel Public Affairs Committee (BIPAC) where he worked on a publication called EEC Monitor. In 1987, however Moonman was forced to resign from BIPAC after a financial scandal which he considered the result of a campaign against him. Below is an extract from The Guardian explaining the circumstances of Moonman’s departure from BIPAC:

An unusual advert has just appeared in ‘The Jewish Chronicle’, asking anyone who knows about a campaign of malice against the former Labour MP Eric Moonman to send the information to a box number. It has been placed, of course, by Moonman himself, who is senior vice-president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, and chairman of the Islington Area Health Authority in London. Until recently he was also a board member of the British-Israel Public Affairs Committee (BIPAC), but he resigned at the last meeting following what might be called the Alexander Keddie Affair. Keddie doesn’t actually exist, although he was once described as a recluse in Essex who didn’t like taking phone calls; the name was simply used over a period of about four years to steer payments to a variety of people, including Moonman, who worked on a BIPAC publication called EEC Monitor. An accountant’s report into the affair was prompted by Monty Summary, a prominent Jewish businessman and fundraiser, and it concluded that Moonman had left people confused about the Keddie arrangement. Moonman denies this, and is now intent on unmasking his putative tormentors. ‘I do think there is a campaign against me,’ he said this week. ‘There have been anonymous letters and phone calls as well.’”

By 2001, Moonman had joined the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland. In mid January 2002, the ‘New Statesman’ reported that he headed the Zionist Federation’s Media Response Unit, organising email and letter writing campaigns against journalists perceived to be antisemitic or critical of Israel. A week after the publishing of that article, Moonman had reportedly become President of the organisation.

Moonman’s emergence as a terrorism expert seems to have stemmed from his involvement in an organisation called the Centre for Contemporary Studies, a think-tank which published material on football hooliganism and race relations, as well as terrorism. The Centre appears to have been founded by Moonman who ‘seems to have been affected by the Brixton riots and anxious about the possibility of societal breakdown’. The Public Inquiry into the 1981 Brixton riots was Chaired by Lord Scarman, who was a personal friend of John Tilley, the Labour MP for Lambeth Central, 1978-83. Tilley was one of the key organisers of the trafficking gangs in Wandsworth and Lambeth which were linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales (see post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’). Kids from these areas of south London were being sent to children’s homes in north Wales and were then trafficked back down to London to work in the sex industry. Brixton is located in the area covered by Lambeth Borough Council. Scarman knew about Dafydd’s gang and the associated gang working in Lambeth and concealed their crimes. See post ‘Only One Died’.

In May 1981, the Centre for Contemporary Studies published a report called “The Nazis are in the Playground”. According to the BBC’s Nationwide programme, it “claims extreme right-wing groups are recruiting school children and authorities are unable to control the situation”. The BBC interviewed Moonman on this on Nationwide. BBC archive records state that he “discusses young racism increasing 50% in 2 yrs; subtle strategies used; importance of process for future of the National Front; accuses the NUT of indifference and gives Centre’s proposals”. Later in 1981, a further report on the role of neo-fascist groups in music led to an interview with Joan Bakewell on ‘Newsnight’.

Joan Bakewell had a long-running affair with Harold Pinter. Harold knew about Dafydd et al from several sources, including from his wife Lady Antonia Fraser, who was the daughter of Lord Longford. Lord Longford did a truly splendid job of allowing himself to be seen as a national joke during a lifetime of visiting offenders in a whole variety of institutions who were the victims of, or witnesses to, the Westminster Paedophile Ring and gathering info from them. Lord Longford knew exactly who had the evidence on whom and in which institution they were banged up. See post ‘Comedies Of Menace’. Harriet Harman is a member of Lord Longford’s extended family…

 

According to the BBC’s archives Eric Moonman welcomed a “declaration” by the pop group ‘Madness’ that they had nothing to do with the NF and the British Movement, because the extreme right saw pop concerts as a potential market for their magazines.

In 1985, ‘Madness’ was part of a collective of musicians who formed Red Wedge, a rather lame attempt to raise support for the Windbag among the Yoof of Britain. It failed dismally. The only person involved with Red Wedge who was politically literate was Billy Bragg, but he came across in the media as being rather Dave Spart and he alienated a lot of the people to whom Red Wedge were trying to Reach Out. Billy Bragg stood up on stage strumming and singing his song ‘Between the Wars’, which just caused many an alternative comedian to include a bit in their gig in which they adopted a Cockney accent and yelled ‘I was a miner’.

The leader of Red Wedge was Tom Robinson, who was quite a bit older than the Yoof and was most well-known for his gay rights activism. I only found out a few days ago that for six years when he was an adolescent, Tom Robinson lived in the therapeutic community of Finchden Manor. Finchden was a therapeutic community which was established by George Lyward. It housed young people who had not coped at all well at school. The teens at Finchden were not brutalised like the kids in Bryn Estyn were because a lot of the Finchden residents were from privileged families; there were ex-public school boys there and Tom Robinson himself was from a middle-class family in Cambridge. Tom Robinson maintains that George Lyward saved his life after a terrible time as a boy when Robinson realised that he was gay. I am in no position to tell Tom Robinson that this isn’t true, Tom was there and I wasn’t, but Lyward was networked into all those other people like Dafydd and Dafydd’s mate Dr Bob Hobson (see post ‘The Mentor’) who also claimed to be running ‘therapeutic communities’ and who were sexually abusing/exploiting young people.

Can the Windbag tell us if his pal Tony Francis had anything to do with someone in the Labour Party finding a rock star who was grateful to one of Dafydd’s network to launch Red Wedge, at a time when a group of leftie young people working in academia and the media had such damning evidence about Dafydd’s and Tony Francis’s gang?

 

When the General Election was called in 1987, Red Wedge also organised a comedy tour featuring Lenny Henry, Ben Elton and Phil Jupitus  among others. Lenny Henry was married to Dawn French who went to Holyhead School – as did the Windbag’s wife – and was happy to have her name used as PR for that very troubled institution which ignored the abuse of children. Ben Elton’s dad Lewis Elton was a Prof at Surrey University and knew Prof Vincent Marks, the brother of Dr John Marks who as President of the BMA concealed the serious criminality in north Wales and on the turf of linked gangs. Lewis and Ben also had numerous other links with those who colluded with Dafydd (see post ‘The Rakes’ Progress’) and Lewis Elton was also a big mate of Professor Daphne Jackson, someone else who ignored the wrongdoing of people associated with Dafydd (see post ‘Jennifer’s Diary’).  Phil Jupitus more recently performed at a fund-raising gig ‘The Giddy Goat’ organised by and for the benefit of St David’s Hospice in Llandudno, an establishment founded and run by Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts.

The comedians of Red Wedge also published an election pamphlet, Move On Up, with a foreword by the Windbag. After the 1987 election produced a third consecutive Conservative victory, many of the musical collective drifted away. Yes Indeedy, because Mrs Thatch won yet again, in spite of Ben’s best efforts at assisting the associates of a paedophile gang.

In his writings, Eric Moonman focused in particular on the influence of media and television. He published a report in October 1981 on the riots that summer called “Copycat Hooligans”, which argued that: “Youths imitated television film of violence in Northern Ireland when they rioted in more than 20 British cities last summer… Eric Moonman, the Centre’s director and author of the report entitled Copy Cat Hooligans, said the rioters knew what to do because they had seen it on television.

There was much research carried out at the time – including by some of the academics who later did everything possible to shaft Brown – with regard to Copy Cat Violence. Most of the more robust research suggested that there was no such problem, but the researchers who claimed that there was enjoyed much higher media coverage. One such man was the Rev Brian Brown who just spouted nonsense. The Rev Brian Brown was the reason why Brown published some of his early work under his middle name of John, because being confused with the Rev caused great difficulties. Actually, I need to ask Brown a few things – it has just occurred to me that the Rev Brian Brown appeared on the scene publishing in exactly the same area as Brown when the security services were in hot pursuit of us…

Brown would have made a better Rev than so many who were ordained by the Anglican Church if only he were not an atheist, because he did manage to keep his hands off of underaged kids and other people’s bank accounts… A few more people should try it.

 

In 1987, Moonman published a book called The Violent Society which included contributions from prominent terrorologists Paul Wilkinson and Richard Clutterbuck. Paul Wilkinson was identified in the contributors notes as a member of the Advisory Board of the Centre for Contemporary Studies. Insight, the Alumni magazine for Liverpool University, wrote that The Violent Society ‘was well received and, surprisingly for Eric, marked another chapter in his life’. The article states that after the publication of The Violent Society Moonman ‘began to take on consultancy work for ITN as an expert in counter-terrorism’.

Paul Wilkinson (9 May 1937 – 11 August 2011) was Emeritus Professor of International Relations and Director of the University of St Andrews Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence (CSTPV). Dubbed “Britain’s leading academic specialist in the study of terrorism”, Wilkinson was a frequent commentator in the British media and an advisor to the UK Gov’t.

Born in Harrow in 1937, Wilkinson was educated at John Lyon School in Harrow. Wilkinson studied for a BA in Modern History and Politics at University College Swansea, followed by an MA.

Swansea University was pretty much run by Rhodri Morgan’s family; Rhodri’s brother Prys was an historian who spent his career at Swansea University. Swansea was the home town of Lord Brian Flowers, a nuclear physicist who was a big wig at Imperial College and then in the wider University of London. Flowers concealed and colluded with the crimes of Dafydd et al in Wales as well as with Dafydd’s Big Mates in the London Medical Schools, who were facilitating abuse and perpetrating research fraud like there was no tomorrow. Just to ensure that he had all angles covered, Brian Flowers also served as VC of Manchester University. See previous posts.

After serving six years as an education officer in the RAF, Wilkinson began his academic career at the University of Wales, Cardiff as an Assistant Lecturer in Politics in 1966. He became Senior Lecturer and then Reader in Politics at Cardiff before moving to the University of Aberdeen, where he was appointed as the first Chair in International Relations in 1979.

Cardiff University, particularly the Welsh National School of Medicine, was Command and Control HQ in Wales in relation to concealing Dafydd et al and of course the child molesting of George Thomas. Aberdeen University supplied the dreadful Professor J.B. Owen to the Agriculture Dept at UCNW after Mary Wynch began her litigation and reinforcements were required (see post ‘Not Seen Since The 80s – Carwyn’). Aberdeen had a few other interesting people as well, such as Sir Dugald Baird, a Prof of Obs and Gynae who pioneered aborting babies for ‘socio-economic reasons’. Not only did Dugald manage to abort babies if he judged that the women gestating the foetuses were too short of money for his liking – Dugald had a big family himself, he didn’t have a problem with wealthy people having a lot of children, it was just the plebs who had to be ordered to have abortions – but Dugald did this on a very big scale and before the 1967 Abortion Act. All Top Doctors in British Obs and Gynae knew what Dugald was up to, but not only was he left to get on and do it in peace, but Top Doctors at Tommy’s who were performing illegal abortions looked to Dugald as their role model and constructed him as a Wimmin’s Champ (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’). Dr Death was working at Tommy’s while his colleagues were modelling themselves on Dugald.

Dugald Baird also set up the Aberdeen MRC Sociology Unit led by Raymond Illsley, which was linked to his extermination of low-income foetuses Dept. Raymond Illsley’s Unit was commissioned by the Home Office Research Unit which, under various Home Secretaries, including Woy, conducted some questionable research while studiously ensuring that no-one noticed the en masse physical and sexual abuse of people living in units and institutions which the Home Office was running. See post ‘Rab, High Table and the Founding Fathers’. Of course Dugald Baird had links with Dafydd’s network, how could Dugald not have heard of his fellow travellers in north Wales???

Testament Of Fuckwittery:

British Politics | First Draft

 

Aberdeen has hosted more fuckwittery since Dugald’s death in 1986, in the form of Sir Ian Diamond, Principal and VC of Aberdeen University, 2010-18. Sir Ian David Diamond is a Policy Network Chair of  Universities UK. His previous appointments include Chief Executive of the ESRC – it was Sir Ian who was CEO when Professor Fergus Lowe and a few others with knowledge of Dafydd’s wrongdoing were given a great deal of money to set up an ESCR Centre into Bilingualism at Bangor University; Chair of the Research Councils UK Executive Group and Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Southampton, another institution which housed some of Dafydd’s umbrellas, eg. Sir Donald Acheson (see post ‘Professor Prestigious And His Associates’); Chair of Lloyds Banking Group Foundation for England and Wales; Visiting Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford; Chair of British Universities and Colleges Sport, Chair (Ex Officio) of the Mitchell Hospital Trust; Deputy Chair of UCAS and Interim Deputy Chair of the Department for International Development Research Advisory Group, 2017.

Sir Ian is also Trustee of the Iona Cathedral Trust and the Population Investigation Committee.

Sir Ian received his K in the 2013 New Year Honours for services to social science and higher education. Tony Francis was safely dead then and the cover-up of the cover-up that was the Waterhouse Inquiry which was the Macur Review was safely in hand.

Sir Ian is also a qualified football referee and was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant of Aberdeen in 2013.

In 2016 Sir Ian led a review of University finance in Wales which was commissioned by the Welsh Assembly Government, which recommended that grants towards tuition fees should be replaced with support for living costs instead. Sir Ian’s advice was followed by the Welsh Gov’t, who’s previous system of student funding had been designed by Professor Merfyn Jones.

Miranda and Sir Ian: I do hope that you’ve noticed the mess since Sir Ian announced that Merfyn’s model of student finance had to be ditched, because students in Wales certainly have.

The Diamond Geezer was born in Kingkerswell, Devon. He obtained his Bachelors degree from the LSE in 1975 and his Masters degree from the LSE in 1976. In 1981 the Diamond Geezer received his PhD from the institution dominated by the most elite of Top Docs, St Andrews University. Why are we not surprised? See previous posts for further gen re the Diamond Geezer.

 

In 1989 Paul Wilkinson was appointed to the first Chair in International Relations at the University of St Andrews and served as the Director of the Research Institute for the Study of Conflict and Terrorism, 1989-94. In 1994 Wilkinson co-founded Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence (CSTPV) with its first Director, Bruce Hoffman. 

Bruce Hoffman is a tenured Professor at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, where between 2010 and 2017 he was the Director of the Center for Security Studies and Director of the Security Studies programme. Hoffman is the second longest-serving Director in the Center. He is also visiting Professor of Terrorism Studies at St Andrews University, Scotland.

Hoffman received a BA in Government and History from Connecticut College in 1976. He studied international relations at Oxford University, where he earned a B.Phil. in 1978 and a D.Phil. in 1986. Hoffman is a political analyst who specialises in the study of terrorism, counter-terrorism, insurgency and counter-insurgency. 

In 1981, Hoffman joined the RAND Corporation in Santa Monica, California. He left RAND in 1994 to relocate to St Andrew’s, where he co-founded (with Wilkinson) and was the first Director of the CSTPV at St Andrews; Hoffman was also Chairman of the Department of International Relations, 1994–1998. Hoffman left St Andrews at the end of 1998 to return RAND as Director of RAND’s Washington Office, 1998–2006, Vice President for external affairs at RAND, 2001–2004, and Acting Director of the Center for Middle East Public Policy , 2004. He also held the RAND Corporate Chair in Counter-terrorism and Counter-insurgency, 2006–2006. Hoffman served as a Commissioner on the 9/11 Review Commission, which examined the FBI’s ability to counter terrorism, radicalization and cyber crime. The Commission’s report was released on March 25, 2015. He was scholar-in-residence for Counter-terrorism at the Central Intelligence Agency, 2004-06; an Adviser on counter-terrorism to the Office of National Security Affairs, Coalition Provisional Authority, Baghdad, Iraq in 2004 and from 2004 to 2005, an Adviser on counter-insurgency to the Strategy, Plans, and Analysis Office at Multi-National Forces-Iraq Headquarters, Baghdad. Hoffman was also an adviser to the Iraq Study Group (2006).

Hoffman is currently Shelby Cullom and Kathryn W. Davis Senior Visiting Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and was a Visiting Fellow at All Souls College, Oxford University in 2009. Hoffman has been a public policy fellow and a distinguished scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C. and is currently a Global Wilson Fellow. He was also a visiting Professor at Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Singapore, where he was the S. Rajaratnam Professor of Strategic Studies for 2009 and the William F. Podlich Distinguished Fellow and visiting Professor of Gov’t at Claremont McKenna College in 2016. Hoffman has been teaching at the International Institute for Counter-terrorism at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel, since 2006.

Hoffman’s mate Paul Wilkinson was a Visiting Fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge, 1997-98. He is co-founder and was co-editor of the academic journal Terrorism and Political Violence, 1989–2006 and was Director of a research project funded by the ESRC on the UK’s preparedness for terrorist attacks. Wilkinson also served as Advisor to Lord Lloyd of Berwick’s “Inquiry into Legislation Against Terrorism” and authored its second volume, “Research Report for the Inquiry”, published in October 1996.

In 2004 Dafydd gave evidence to the Independent Inquiry on Gulf War Illnesses conducted by Lord Lloyd of Berwick. Dafydd’s nonsense which was submitted as evidence can be read in my post ‘Feet In Chains’.

Lord Lloyd of Berwick aka Anthony Lloyd is a retired judge. He was educated at Eton, served in the army and then read law at Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1955 Lord Lloyd was admitted to the Inner Temple as a barrister. Lloyd was Attorney General to Prince Charles, 1969-77. Oh well Charles was mates with Jimmy Savile… Lord Lloyd was a High Court judge, a Law Lord and a Privy Councillor and in 1996 he reviewed anti- terrorist legislation using Paul Wilkinson as an advisor. Then in 2004 Lord Lloyd relied upon the word of Dafydd…

Lord Lloyd is still alive. Can he explain what he was doing exactly?

 

In August 2007, Wilkinson was appointed Emeritus Professor of International Relations and retired from serving as the Chairman of CSTPV’s Advisory Board, but remained active in academia and policy circles.

Throughout Wilkinson’s career, which spanned the five decades that saw the rise of the IRA bombings to the September 11 2001 attacks, Wilkinson was a strong opponent of terrorism but adamant that democratic responses to it always be guided by the rule of law. For example, he publicly opposed attempts to increase the period permitted to detain terrorism suspects without trial in the UK and condemned the George Dubya Bush administration’s approach to counter-terrorism, such as Guantanamo, which he criticized as flouting “international law and criminal justice”.

Indeed, Wilkinson said that liberal democracy was what sparked his interest in his subject, stating that he had become “interested initially in the mid-1960s in why terrorism had been effective in some conflicts and not others. Then, with the burgeoning of modern international terrorism in the 1970s, I became interested in the politics of democratic and international response”. Wilkinson appreciated it as a multi-disciplinary and “ever-changing” research topic that was especially rewarding because he was a part of “a small band of pioneers in this almost totally neglected field” in his early career.

As Dafydd has been so often. Dafydd with a history of hobnobbing with terrorists.

 

Richard Clutterbuck (22 November 1917 – 6 January 1998) was a pioneer in the study of political violence. In his lifetime he was both a professional soldier and academic.

Clutterbuck was commissioned into the Royal Engineers in 1937 after graduating in mechanical sciences from Cambridge. After Dunkirk, he went through both the Western Desert and Italian campaigns. The Army sent Clutterbuck to different hotspots, including Palestine (1947) during the Irgun Zvei Leumi’s terrorist campaign. In 1956, up against Chinese communists, Lt. Col Clutterbuck shed his rank badges to go on patrol as an ordinary soldier. As Chief Engineer Far East, 1966–68, Brigadier Clutterbuck put into practice in northeast Thailand the counter-terrorist philosophy he was gradually evolving. His next job after Thailand was the top one, as Engineer-in-Chief, 1968–70 at the Ministry of Defence. While in the Far East, however, Clutterbuck had started to read for a PhD in politics. In 1968, Clutterbuck enrolled at London University.

Clutterbuck looks like the sort of mad old bugger who worked for the security services who was ready to organise a military coup if Tony Benn became PM…

 

Clutterbuck’s last Army post was back in the specialisation that he had created for himself, as Chief Army Instructor of the Royal College of Defence Studies, devoted to peacekeeping or “low-intensity Operations” as they were now termed. On retirement in 1972 he became Dr Clutterbuck, and marched straight into the post of lecturer in political conflict at Exeter University.

One thing that Clutterbuck will have known much about is the elite paedophile ring which was based at Kincora Boys’ Home which was alleged to include Sir Anthony Blunt and Lord Louis Mountbatten and the links between that ring and Dafydd’s gang in north Wales/Cheshire.

In 1978, Richard Clutterbuck published a volume entitled ‘Britain in Agony’. It certainly was by 1978, Parliament contained a proportion of active paedophiles who became so worried that they were all about to be exposed what with Jeremy Thorpe being charged, that the whole establishment went collectively mad. More agony was to follow as a great many innocent people in north Wales lost their lives.

 

Despite the overblown claims of Eric Moonman being the go-to man when the media wanted expertise on terrorism for decades, Eric Moonman’s media presence as a terrorism expert does not seem to have taken off until after the millennium. The television archive contains only one item in the 1990s listing Moonman as a terrorism expert and the note does not contain an exact date. With the exception of that item, Moonman’s first appearance seems to have been on a Channel Five Lunchtime Bulletin on 18 July 2002, after which he appeared dozens of times on UK television.

In 1998, Moonman was appointed as a member of the Advisory Board of the Centre for Counter Terrorism Studies at the Potomic Institute for Policy Studies. He appeared at an ‘Executive Luncheon’ hosted by the group on 26 November 2001. The panel was chaired by Yonah Alexande
