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…’

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!

    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 Investiture of Prince Charles, Prince of Wales | HubPages

 

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.

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

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.

Yes, There Is Still Green Paint On The Renault…

While watching vintage TV clips of ‘Have I Got News For You’ yesterday to remind me of what was headline news and the subject of media comment at the various different times when Dafydd et al feared exposure and called in reinforcements, I watched the Ghost Of Labour’s Wit Past, the late Tony Banks. During his years in politics, Tony Banks was lauded as a highly entertaining fun guy with the best one liners in the Commons. In terms of his public performance, this was true. Yet Tony Banks knew about some truly terrible matters re the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and not only did he remain absolutely silent about it all, he provided useful distractions and a supply of weapons to help out Dafydd and the gang at crucial moments.

Anthony Louis Banks, Baron Stratford (8 April 1942 – 8 January 2006) was the Labour MP for Newham North West, 1983-97 and West Ham, 1997-2005. He served as Minister for Sport, 1997-99.

Children in the care of Newham Borough Council were among those sent to kids’ homes in north Wales and then trafficked back down to London as sex workers. There were complaints about the abuse of kids from Newham but no-one took any notice and the supply of children to Dafydd’s gang continued. Another person who knew about the business arrangement between Newham and Dafydd’s gang in north Wales was the Labour politician and Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales (see post ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’).

 

Tony Banks was born at the Jubilee Maternity Hospital, Belfast, the only son of a sergeant in the Royal Army Service Corps. The family returned to England after the birth and Banks grew up in Brixton and Tooting. He was educated in London at St. John’s School, Brixton, Tenison’s School in Kennington, the University of York and the LSE.

There were long-standing paedophile gangs operating in Lambeth – Brixton is in the Borough of Lambeth – and in the Borough of Wandsworth, which covers the area of Tooting and it was on the back of these gangs that Dafydd, John Allen et al built their business which involved the industrial scale abuse and trafficking of children from the late 1960s onward. John Tilley, the Labour MP for Lambeth Central, 1978-83, arrived in south London in the mid-1960s, made links with those in local authorities, became a Wandsworth Councillor in 1971 and subsequently Leader of Wandsworth Council and throughout it all drummed up trade for Dafydd’s gang. Once in the Commons, Tilley continued to bat for Dafydd et al via Tilley’s interests in alcohol and drug abuse and demands that there should be more Gov’t funding for Top Doctors specialising in such matters. See post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’.

When Harold Wilson’s Gov’t planned the building of a new flagship medical school/teaching hospital in London under the auspices of ‘taking medical expertise into the community where the people were’, the project chosen was to relocate St George’s Hospital at Hyde Park Corner, Knightsbridge, to a splendid new building in Tooting. The staff at St George’s, who could hardly be bettered for social snobbery, had no interest at all in being based on the mean streets of Tooting, but Wilson’s and then Callaghan’s Gov’t pushed ahead with the relocation which was complete by the early 1980s. Thus St George’s of Knightsbridge, a hospital staffed by Top Doctors who saw their job as tending to the needs of the very privileged and who often had many close connections to the very privileged themselves and which had developed a Dept of Psychiatry led and staffed by a small group of truly malignant Top Doctors who consistently discredited the victims of privileged criminals, was plonked on the territory of Wandsworth, which had a well-developed paedophile/trafficking gang. The prime mover and shaker behind the merger of the trafficking gang of Wandworth and the elitist criminals’ friends of St George’s was Sir Paul Storey. A very convenient arrangement for people wanting to conceal the Westminster Paedophile Ring, such as Harold Wilson and Jim Callaghan who knew what a big vote puller in south Wales the child molester George Thomas was and who also had others such as Greville Janner to consider. See post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’.

Lest anyone who hasn’t read all my previous blog posts thinks that I’m in the realms of an over-developed conspiracy theory here, just think of the following St George’s highlights:

When Norman Scott became so distressed at the activities of Jeremy Thorpe that Norman had a breakdown, Jeremy’s circle as an act of kindness assisted Norman by finding him help from Desmond Curran, the man who established the Psychiatry Dept at St George’s and who, along with his colleagues, was facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring.

After Lord Lucan murdered his children’s nanny and tried to kill his wife, Lady Lucan was taken to St George’s Hospital where, despite having head injuries, she was treated as though she was mad; such was the chaos and delay in Top Doctors and others waking up to what Lord Lucan had done that Lucan disappeared and almost certainly fled the UK, assisted by others. Lady Lucan had previous with regard to being nuts: as Lord Lucan gambled away the family fortune and subjected Lady Lucan to domestic violence and extreme emotional abuse, he paid for Top Doctors to help his insane wife. When his insane wife’s condition did not improve, Lord Lucan left his insane wife and paid Top Doctors for their opinion that his children should not be allowed to live with his wife, what with her being insane. The judge at the custody hearing took a rather dim view of Lord Lucan’s occupation being that of a ‘professional gambler’ and ordered that the children should live with the insane Lady Lucan, as long as she employed a nanny to help her. Nannies didn’t stay long at lady Lucan’s household and Lady Lucan alleged that her husband and his associates were harassing and manipulating them. One nanny with whom Lady Lucan did get on with well was Sandra Rivett. Who was murdered by Lord Lucan. After Lord Lucan disappeared, Lady Lucan lost custody of her children to one of Lord Lucan’s friends on the grounds that she was insane. Lady Lucan always maintained that the Top Doctors who ‘looked after’ her drugged her into oblivion, lied to and about her and were working for the benefit of her husband, not her. Because the evidence given by the Top Doctors re Lady Lucan was with regard to divorce and custody hearings, I have not been able to access details of the evidence or the names of the Top Docs involved, but I do know that Lady Lucan was treated by Top Docs at The Priory and at St George’s. The names and signatures of Top Docs working at The Priory and St George’s, along with details of their criminal conspiracy with Dafydd et al in north Wales to have me declared ‘extremely dangerous’ and banged up without trial, are on documents in my possession. Some of those named were working at St George’s when Lady Lucan was encountering serious problems.

I was told yesterday that Dafydd was linked to the Lucan case. I cannot say that I am entirely surprised; by the time that Sandra Rivett was found dead, Dafydd had built up a well-established reputation in England as well as in Wales as being a Top Doctor who would do anything, anything at all, if one paid him enough. I’d be interested to know who paid Dafydd and how much with regard to what he did – and tried to do – to me, because Dafydd would never have bothered to do all that in return for his NHS salary.

John Bingham, 7th Earl of Lucan

The Director of Education for Wandsworth Borough Council, Donald Naismith, was an active paedophile who was abusing kids in care (see previous posts).

Professor Oliver Brooke, a key player in a pan-European paedophile ring who was imprisoned for the possession of child porn in Dec 1986, was the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s and had been working at St George’s for some 10  years before he was jailed. See previous posts eg. ‘Oliver!’

Cynthia Payne’s celebrity brothel at Ambleside Avenue – which when it was raided by the police in 1978 famously contained 58 men including a peer of the realm, an MP, solicitors, company directors and a number of vicars within busy at a sex party – was in Streatham, just down the road from St George’s Hospital Medical School. There were Top Doctors from St George’s present at the party when Cynthia’s brothel was raided, but that received no publicity at all. See post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’.

 

Tony Banks remained a London-based politician throughout his entire career. There was no way that he did not hear about Madam Cyn’s brothel and about the imprisonment of Ollie Brooke; Banks knew the full horror story behind those supposedly isolated, unconnected incidents. A massive trafficking ring involving some of the most privileged people in the UK targeting some of the most disadvantaged, facilitated by Top Doctors in collaboration with the Social Services…

 

Tony Banks worked as an Assistant General Secretary for the Association of Broadcasting Staff union, which represented staff in the BBC and other broadcasting organisations. Jimmy Savile/Stuart Hall/Rolf anyone? There were many more at the BBC, including a number of managers and executives who’s names were not familiar to most viewers; Savile wasn’t allowed to clutter up the BBC for decades by accident. Everyone who worked at the BBC knew at least something about it even if they weren’t part of the shagfest. The Association of Broadcasting Staff later merged with other unions to form BECTU (Broadcasting, Entertainment, Cinematograph and Theatre Union). For several years Banks was responsible for freelances.

Sexual exploitation which often constituted frank sexual abuse was/is rampant in the entertainment/luvvies business, absolutely rampant. It was so rampant that if one was felt to be sufficiently distant from the shenanigans that one could possibly turn up as a whistleblower one day, one was frozen out, as my two friends who worked in the media in the 1980s were. One of my friends was offered a ‘wonderful opportunity’ in Zimbabwe, refused to shag a horrible old movie director and found herself out of a job days later; when she returned to the UK she was unlawfully dismissed from her job with the Royal Television Society for wanting to make a film about north Wales and then her husband was forced out of the BBC after he refused to accept a bribe. My friends committed so many crimes in terms of not behaving like turds that I’m still not sure how much of the aggro that they received in their media careers was because of their friendship with me and how much was because they were not corrupt and exploitative.

Even the most right-on and seemingly pleasant, genuine celebs/luvvies, including those working-class radicals in Mike Leigh’s circle, knew about the sexploitation and the procuring of underaged kids by Savile, Dafydd’s gang and others.

Miranda’s father-in-law:

Tony Booth: 'Can Miliband Win? In Your F***ing Dreams'

 

Not everyone was in entertainment/the world of luvvieinvolved in actively abusing those youngsters but they knew what was happening and have kept quiet ever since, in the way that the whole BBC loathed Savile but remained schtum. The freelancers represented by union rep Tony Banks would have been in particularly vulnerable positions.

 

Tony Banks unsuccessfully stood for the Liberal Party in the 1964 first elections to the new London Boroughs. He later joined the Labour Party, and during the 1970s and 1980s was a prominent Labour member of the GLC, representing Hammersmith, 1970–1977 and Tooting, 1981–1986. Banks was Chairman of the GLC from 1985 until its abolition in 1986.

The whole of the GLC, as well as Red Ken, leader of the GLC, 1981-86, knew about Dafydd’s gang (see previous posts). Red Ken was one of those who signed an Early Day Motion in 1992 opposing the closure of Garth Angharad, a ‘hospital for mentally abnormal criminals’ in Dolgellau (see post ‘More On Those Who Signed That Early Day Motion’). Except that Garth Angharad wasn’t a hospital for mentally abnormal criminals or anyone else, it was an isolated building in Snowdonia that was owned by Paul Hett, a solicitor who was later struck off for embezzling clients’ funds. The mentally abnormal criminals contained within were victims of Dafydd’s gang, who had been rash enough to complain about what had happened to them. Paul Hett owned and managed three schools/children’s homes in north Wales in which children were abused. Even Ronnie Waterhouse couldn’t find anything positive to say about Paul Hett.

Garth Angharad is mentioned in my documentation. A case conference was held there about me – while I was sitting in a London Medical School as a postgrad – by Dr Chris Hunter, of whom I had never heard until I received the documentation relating to all this some three years ago. Dafydd and Tony Francis gave evidence at the case conference, as did Gwynedd social workers and other people whom I had never met. Chris Hunter concluded that I was extremely dangerous and needed to be incarcerated in a high security hospital. Hunter offered to compile a Court report saying this. I was not facing any charges at the time, but soon after the case conference I was arrested on the basis of the perjury of Tony Francis et al. See post ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’.

Chris Hunter was a forensic psychiatrist who worked at Whitchurch Hospital in Cardiff, at the Caswell Clinic in Bridgend and at Ashworth Hospital, Merseyside. Hunter was responsible for Lawrence Ward, the ‘Personality Disorder Unit’ at Ashworth, which was hit by scandal after scandal and, after a patient was battered to death, was the subject of a Public Inquiry, The Fallon Inquiry, in the 1990s, just a few short years after the Committee of Inquiry into Complaints about Ashworth Hospital was Chaired by Louis Blom-Cooper QC, who knew what had been going on at Ashworth but kept quiet. See previous posts.

Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass was a member of the panel for the Fallon Inquiry and it was Bluglass who was tasked with investigating the murder of the patient. To assist him in this, Bluglass employed the services of a senior Angel from the unit of which Bluglass was himself Clinical Director, the Reaside Clinic, Birmingham and a senior Angel from Clwyd Health Authority who was a mate of Dafydd’s. See previous posts eg. ‘Security, Security’. Bluglass had concealed Dafydd’s criminality in 1989 when Bluglass was appointed to investigate my own complaint about Dafydd et al. Part of my complaint was an assault on me by an Angel employed at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, Stephen Rose. The only response that I ever received was the assurance that I was completely mad at the time and that I had misinterpreted events with Rose. Other Angels made statements that Rose acted professionally at all times. When I presented further evidence, Rose was transferred to a job at Park Lane Hospital, which merged with Moss Side to form Ashworth. Where the Angels, who behaved professionally at all times, murdered a patient.

The conclusion of the Fallon Inquiry was that Dangerous Patients had ‘taken over’ Lawrence Ward, were out of control and were telling the Top Doctors and Angels what to do. The solution was a Tougher Regime for Dangerous Nutters. There were indeed things going on in Lawrence Ward that should not have been happening, such as quantities of hard core porn stashed on the ward and at least one child in social services care being taken into the ward ‘to visit paedophiles’, but everyone forgot to mention that Lawrence Ward was established and run by a gang of paedophiles who were working as Top Doctors and Angels. It was admitted that one Angel had been a little bit lax when he was conducted a search of a Dangerous Nutter’s room and during the search sat on the bed, read the porn that was in the Dangerous Nutter’s room and ticked it off on the list of property checked during the search.

Hard core porn and children in the care of Bradford Social Services? Present and correct.

The Fallon Inquiry was the result of an Ashworth patient who escaped abroad, telephoned back to the UK and stated that he would happily hand himself in if it was agreed that there would be an Inquiry into Lawrence Ward, because this man alleged that terrible things were happening there. The patient’s family were the constituents of the Labour MP for Halifax, 1987-2005, Alice Mahon. Mahon went to school in Halifax and then worked in the NHS as a nursing auxiliary for ten years. In 1979, Mahon gained a BA in Social Policy from the University of Bradford and taught Trade Union Studies at Bradford College, 1980-87. Meanwhile, Mahon was a Councillor on Calderdale Council. When the Fallon Inquiry reported, Alice was particularly voluble about the necessity of Security for Dangerous Patients. See previous posts ‘Security, Security’.

Dr Brian Gibbons, the Labour AM for Aberavon, 1999-2011, who served as the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister, 2005-07, moved from his home country of Ireland to Calderdale to train as a GP in 1976. Gibbons colluded with Dafydd and the gang throughout his time as an AM and when I wrote to Gibbons and told him that I had evidence of serious criminal activity in the NHS and social services in north Wales, Gibbons sent me a reply telling me that this correspondence was over.

There was a paedophile/trafficking ring operating in Mahon’s area, with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Mahon has been involved with many left wing causes and Supports The NHS. When Mahon was unable to access an expensive drug for her own non-life threatening condition on the NHS, she took legal action against her local NHS. No getting beaten to death by an Angel for Alice. She’s got the Stop The War marches to go on with Jezza after all.

The escapee from Ashworth made his phone call demanding an inquiry in 1996. In 1996 the man who had previously tried to kill Brown went in search of Brown again. The Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974 was completed in the summer of 1996, but Cherie Booth’s friend and colleague Michael Beloff QC, in his capacity as the legal adviser to Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council and the North Wales Police, ensured that the Report was witheld from everyone, including Councillors, except for lawyers and insurers. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’ Michael Beloff’s dad Lord Max Beloff was a friend of both Thatch and Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council. See previous posts.

 

 

Can Red Ken explain why the leader of the GLC who subsequently became the Labour MP for Brent East, 1987-2001, was so keen to stop the closure of one of Dafydd’s personal prisons in the back end of beyond in Dolgellau???

Ken Livingstone.jpg

Has Red Ken ever even been to Dolgellau? Theresa goes to Dolgellau but that’s because Theresa likes hill walking. When Theresa visits Snowdonia she stays in the Penmaenuchaf Hall Hotel, which is just down the road from what was Garth Angharad. Perhaps all MPs should pay a visit to Garth Angharad and lay a wreath in remembrance of those who died screaming for help upon whom the entire Palace Of Westminster turned their backs. Except for those Members – literally – who were shagging them of course.

‘Well, Clarice… have the lambs stopped screaming?’

Tony Banks was elected Labour MP for Newham North West, after defeating his predecessor, Arthur Lewis, who had been deselected as Labour candidate. Arthur Lewis was educated at Borough Poly and began work as a fitter with the City of London Corporation. Lewis was an official of the National Union of General and Municipal Workers, 1938-48. He signed the first trade union agreement with the catering industry and gained 20,000 new trade union members in the West End London. Lewis was MP for Upton, 1945-50, for West Ham North, 1950-74 and then for Newham West. In 1983, after 38 years as an MP, Lewis was deselected as Labour candidate by his local constituency Labour Party, which he said had become “100 per cent Trotskyist, Militant, Communist and IRA supporters’. By this time Lewis was refusing to attend local party meetings or hold “advice surgeries” for his constituents. The en masse trafficking of kids in care to north Wales from Newham began when Arthur Lewis was in the Commons. He didn’t manage to mention it anymore than the Trotskyite, Militant, Communist and IRA supporters did.

Lyrics To The Sound Of Silence | AZ Lyrics

 

Banks was elected in June 1983. The General Election of 1983 was yet another one where the Labour Party was thrashed but before being thrashed had desperately kept the lid on the criminality in north Wales which was at risk of becoming public because by then Mary Wynch was heading for the Master of the Rolls with her litigation against Dafydd et al. Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass rewrote the Mental Health Act in 1983 to show that Things Had Changed and Dafydd’s other mate William Bingley of MIND wrote the Code Of Practice which accompanied it to make absolutely sure that Things Had Changed and That It Could Never Happen Again. Brown had begun to receive murder threats by June 1983, no-one at UCNW would respond to this and Trishles had moved into our house on Anglesey and was causing havoc; no-one at UCNW would respond to that either, although Trishles was a member of their staff. I now know that Trishles was one of the gifts from the security services to us. See posts ‘He Got On His Bike And Looked For Work’ and ‘A Local Boy Made Good?’.

Dr Death and the Gang of Four were trying their luck by 1983 and Dr Death personally knew some of the Top Docs involved in the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. The molester George Thomas stood down as Speaker of the Commons in June 1983 and Thatch made him a Viscount. People in high places were obviously frantically shifting the furniture about, so the emergence of Tony Banks in the Commons might well have been part of that.

Following a 1995 boundary review, Newham North West was expanded and renamed West Ham for the  1997 General Election. Banks represented that seat until the 2005 General Election when he stood down. Tony Banks hung around until the Waterhouse Report was published and the many loud accusations that it was a huge cover-up had died away.

After Labour’s 1997 election victory Banks was appointed a Minister in the Dept for Culture, Media and Sport, under Secretary of State Chris Smith, MP for Islington South and Finsbury, 1983-2005. Chris Smith was educated at George Watson’s College in Edinburgh and Pembroke College, Cambridge. He attended Harvard and was President of the Cambridge Union Society. Before he was elected to the Commons, Smith worked for a housing charity and became a Councillor in the London Borough of Islington. In 1984, Chris Smith was the first MP to come out as gay and received a standing ovation from the audience to whom he announced this. Then in 2005 Chris Smith told ‘The Sunday Times’ that he has HIV and first knew that he was infected in 1987. There was a paedophile/trafficking gang operating in Islington children’s homes with links to Dafydd’s gang. Chris never mentioned them. However Chris has spoken about being able to live a long life with HIV. But then Chris doesn’t have Dafydd as his Top Doctor.

Chris became Lord Chris Smith in 2005! Which was when things began hotting up at Bangor University and the brother-in-law of Miranda’s policy adviser John McTernan nicked my computer.

 

While he was Minister for Sport, Banks called for foreign players in the English Premiership to become eligible to play for England (“can you imagine seeing Cantona and Giggs swapping the Red of Manchester for the White of England?”). He also caused consternation by suggesting the football teams of the four constituent parts of the UK merge to compete in the Olympic Games, which eventually occurred for the 2012 Olympics.

Among other Ministerial responsibilities of Banks’s were listed buildings and Banks approved controversial additions including the 1930s Three Magpies pub in Birmingham and numerous redundant NHS buildings. He was also responsible for Grade I listing the Severn Bridge. 

After two years in office, Banks stepped down to become Miranda’s envoy for England’s failed bid to host the 2006 FIFA World Cup. The bid failed, Germany winning the nomination.

What do you mean, bribery and money laundering?

From then until the 2005 General Election Banks remained a backbencher, though he made a failed bid to become Labour’s candidate in the 2004 election for Mayor of London. Red Ken won the nomination and was re-elected as Mayor. Tony Banks was in no position to yell ‘but Ken colluded with the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal…’

A vegetarian, Tony Banks was one of Parliament’s staunchest supporters of animal rights, often speaking against fox hunting and vivisection and he was a Vice-President of the League Against Cruel Sports. Banks was regarded as on the left of Labour, being staunchly republican, an opponent of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and a member of the Socialist Campaign Group. The Socialist Campaign Group contained many Caring Socialists who knew about the criminality of Dafydd et al but throughout all the Caring and Socialism they remained very quiet indeed. Just some of those previously named on this blog are Dennis Skinner, Eric Heffer, Bernie Grant, Tony Benn, Stuart Holland, John Tilley, Llew Smith and the Defender Of The Citizen Against Dangerous Nutters, Alice Mahon.

Tony Banks’s only speeches regarding the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan were to request Gov’t money and the help of the Royal Navy for the animals of the Kabul Zoo, particularly for Marjan, the elderly lion who needed air-conditioning for his rheumatism. While I am sure that it wasn’t much fun being a lion in Kabul Zoo, a great many people suffered every bit as badly as Marjan as a result of the invasion of Afghanistan and life for the victims of Dafydd’s gang wasn’t a bed of feathers either. Alan Clark, the ruthless Thatcherite sexual harasser, was unusual for a Tory in that he too was passionate about animal rights and was on occasions filmed being moved to tears by cruelty to animals. People on the left used to enjoy commenting that Clark abhorred cruelty to all animals except human beings, upon whom he quite enjoyed inflicting suffering. Yet no-one ever maxed out on the same inconsistencies in Tony Banks’s character. Tony was always an all round good bloke, even if his wit was a little too scathing at times.

On 21 May 2004, Banks proposed an Early Day Motion in the 2003–04 session of Parliament,  in response to newspaper reports revealing that MI5 had proposed using pigeons as flying bombs during WW II. The motion condemned the proposal, describing humans as “obscene, perverted, cruel, uncivilised and lethal” and proposed that the House “looks forward to the day when the inevitable asteroid slams into the Earth and wipes them out thus giving nature the opportunity to start again”. It was signed by only two other MPs, Jezza and John McDonnell. Banks’s description of the human race on that EDM certainly captured the nature of some of the Top Doctors, Angels and social workers who enthusiastically worked with Dafydd, but I’m not sure that it was an accurate description of the kids of 13 who were forcibly removed from their homes in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle-upon-Tyne or even Wales and sent to live with the gang in north Wales…

Banks is a supporter of the arts and Chaired the Commons Works of Art Committee, which had responsibility for historic paintings and sculptures in the Palace of Turds.

Banks was known for outspoken and often colourful comments. At the 1997 Labour Party conference, he described Tory leader William Hague as a “foetus”, adding that Conservative MPs might be rethinking their views on abortion. That particular comment caused a bit of a row. If Banks had really wanted to do damage to Hague, he could have mentioned that at the time, Ronnie Waterhouse and a pack of highly paid lawyers were repeatedly accusing people who were describing, in public, how they had been gang raped and beaten for years when they were resident in children’s homes in north Wales, as lying criminals who were after a bit of compensation. Some of the witnesses collapsed while giving evidence and others were unable to walk out of the building unaided.

In 1990, responding to a speech by Conservative MP Terry Dicks opposing Gov’t funding for the arts, Banks said Dicks was “living proof that a pig’s bladder on a stick can get elected to Parliament”. He described Nicholas Soames as “a one-man food mountain”. Fatty Soames was Carlo’s friend and adviser. There were a great many more effective things that Banks could have said about Soames than simply calling him a fat bastard.

Banks referred to Canadians as “dickheads” for culling seals. One reason why the seal cull in Canada continued with a vengeance was that the Canadians were very angry at what they felt was criticism from ignoramuses in other countries. I too would have wanted to stop the seal cull if I could but people tend to take entrenched positions if they feel that cheeky sods from other countries are trying to give them orders. China adopted such a position when Stephen Fry took to the media to tell them not to execute a mentally ill Brit who had been caught in possession of a huge quantity of class A drugs. They told Fry to mind his own business and sped up the process of execution.  Nice one Stephen! Jesus Christ, you were dealing with China and that poor bugger was in their hands…

 

Banks crossed his fingers when he took the oath of allegiance to Lilibet during a new session of Parliament. Banks could have made it public that Lilibet’s Woman-of-the-Bedchamber Dame Mary Morrison had a brother who was abusing kids in care in north Wales and elsewhere, particularly when Lilibet knighted Peter Morrison in Feb 1991, when I was facing yet another attempt to imprison me on the basis of the perjury of the Top Doctors et al…  But no, the republican Banks crossed his fingers and explained that the crossed fingers were him wishing himself luck in his new job as Minister for Sport.

Once, during a live debate on UK teatime chat show ‘Richard & Judy’, Banks called for the video game ‘Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas’ to be banned and declared that “Some video games are worse than child pornography”. Some video games are indeed unsavoury, but the making of those games has never involved kids in care in north Wales being forced to have sex with adults and indeed animals while they were filmed, if necessary by threatening them at gunpoint.

Banks was a keen supporter of Chelsea F.C. and regularly attended matches. Whether Banks the footie fan knew about the cases of young people being sexually exploited by their sports coaches and others in sport which have now become so public I don’t know. I didn’t know about it, but I did spend years wondering why Keith Fearns, a member of Dafydd’s gang who worked for Gwynedd Social Services, ran the Bangor Ladies Football Team and took the Bangor Ladies – who were nearly all student social workers – across Europe, particularly to the former Eastern Bloc. When I remarked upon this to someone else I was met with the suggestion ‘a prostitution racket probably’. Then Martin Jones, the former CEO of the North West Wales NHS Trust, began volunteering to coach a local boys football team on Anglesey and I realised that something odd was definitely happening with regard to football in north Wales. There is no part of Martin Jones at all that would be interested in, or make him suitable for, coaching an under 11s football team.

Banks was a member of the British Humanist Association, as were/are many other paedophiles’ friends who have been named on this blog.

On 23 November 2004, Banks announced he would not stand at the next General Election and that he would retire from the Commons. On 26 November, in an interview with Robin Oakley on Radio 4, he said “To be honest I found it intellectually numbing, and tedious in the extreme. I most certainly won’t miss the constituency work. I’ve got to tell you that honestly. It’s 22 years of the same cases, but just the faces and the people changing. It might sound a little disparaging to say this about people’s lives and their problems and we did deal with them … but I got no satisfaction from this at all. I really didn’t. And all you were was a sort of high-powered social worker and perhaps not even a good one at that. I will miss being Chairman of the Works of Art Committee . . . because I was having so much intellectual enjoyment and indeed just straightforward fun, out of reorganising our collection and that kept me in touch with history.”

The reason that all those dreary constituents of Banks’s were turning up on his doorstep with their many problems was that their lives were very difficult thanks to Banks and the rest of the political class not giving a bugger about them and stitching everything up for themselves. The infrastructure of Britain had been allowed to collapse, the ‘services’ didn’t work and in Newham people’s kids were being sent to live with a gang of paedophiles in north Wales for years who forced them into sex work which left more than a few of them infected with HIV.

When the former kids in care began dying in the late 1980s, those caring sharing politicians and NHS professionals who had watched the abuse and trafficking in silence twisted Ken Clarke’s arm to extract dosh to establish an AIDS hospice in the East End, where the victims of John Allen and Dafydd’s gang died, hidden from view, without anyone knowing how they had become infected with HIV and why they had no families to look after them as they lay dying. The cover story was that their families had ‘rejected them because they were gay’. No, some families had rejected them because they were rent boys, but the real problem was that they had been taken away from their families when they were kids and handed over to Dafydd’s gang who ruined them. They returned to London a few years later, drug addicted, mad and infected with HIV. See post ‘Apocalypse Now’.

As for being no more than ‘a high powered social worker’, Norman Tebbit used to complain of exactly the same thing. ‘We are MPs and MPs are here to hold the executive to account, we are not social workers.’ Well if the Executive have turned the welfare system into one huge crime syndicate and social workers are trafficking their clients, MPs are going to find a lot of distressed desperate people knocking at their doors.

But it’s so much more fun being Chairman of the Works of Arts Committee, the food and wine is excellent and guess who I met the other day???? No, it wasn’t an AIDS-raddled destitute kid of 15 who was working as a rent boy, it was Lord St John of Fawsley!!!

On 24 March 2005 Tony Banks made his final speech in the House of Commons. A week after the General Election, on 13 May 2005, it was announced he would be created a life peer and on 23 June 2005 the peerage was gazetted as Baron Stratford of Stratford in the London Borough of Newham. Which must have been the last almighty dump that Tony Banks took on the heads of the People Of Newham.

On 7 January 2006, it was reported that Lord Banks of the Proles had collapsed two days earlier, after suffering a major stroke while having lunch on Sanibel Island in Florida, where he was on holiday. He therefore went out in the manner to which he was accustomed. He was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Fort Myers and died on 8 January without regaining consciousness. PM Miranda described Banks as “one of the most charismatic politicians in Britain, a true man of the people.”

But then Miranda thought that the UK had a People’s Princess who supported Causes Close To Her Heart, such as expensive shopping sprees in Paris, New York and London and messing about on yachts in the Mediterranean.

Yo Blair, I feel the hand of history upon my shoulder, but it’s not a day for soundbites.

Car Crash: 1997 Car Crash Princess Diana

 

Sometime before that business with the tunnel and the white Fiat Uno, Fatty Soames, who didn’t like Diana, was said to have told her that accidents can happen you know. There didn’t seem to be any dispute regarding this comment until Diana crashed in a tunnel after which Fatty Soames maintained that he made no such comment. Ever.

The obituary for Tony Banks published in ‘The Guardian’ mentioned that some time after the ‘food mountain’ comment, Banks became friendly with Fatty Soames and ‘at a time when the heir to the throne was trying to reshape his public image, Banks was drafted to help with suggestions on appropriate issues Prince Charles might consider supporting. This relationship foundered, predictably, over the issue of hunting’.

‘The Guardian’ also stated that Tony Banks was close friends with a number of other Tories, including Ian Gow and David Mellor. Gow was the MP for Eastbourne and Thatcher’s mate, who was blown up in June 1990. See previous posts. Gow’s assassination was attributed to the IRA but Gow is one of those whom it is suspected might have been targeted because of his role in the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Gow was the son of Alexander Gow, a Top Doctor based at Bart’s and Harley Street. Alexander Gow would have known Lady Juliet Bingley’s surgeon father from Bart’s and Lady Juliet herself, both of whom were concealing organised abuse, including the activities of Lord Louis Mountbatten. See eg. post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’ and comment following post ‘Dr Victoria Winckler v Dr Sally Baker: Update’.

David Mellor colluded with Dafydd and related gangs in his various Gov’t roles, including as Minister of State for Health, July 1988-Oct 1989 and as Minister of State for Home Affairs, Oct 1989-July 1990. In 1983, when Mellor was first appointed to the Home Office, he was involved in the pioneering PACE Act 1984, in the establishment of the CPS and the significant vivisection “laboratory testing of animals” welfare legislation the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986. Although the police made much of calling PACE the ‘protection of criminals act’, it didn’t afford any protection to the victims of Dafydd’s gang who continued to be fitted up in north Wales and the CPS was endemically corrupt and a very good friend indeed to Dafydd et al as well as to Cyril Smith and Greville Janner. The Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act was prepared by a coalition of animal welfarists and scientists led by Sir Andrew Huxley (see post ‘On The Occasion Of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’) and was jointly launched by them, Mellor and campaigner Dr Michael Balls – father of Ed Balls MP  – gave the UK ‘what is still the most advanced framework for the protection of laboratory animals’. Lab animals in the UK were certainly not treated in the way that they were in for example Japan, but that is more a function of a different view of animals in Britain as a whole. There are some researchers who ignored the legislation concerning lab animals – it wasn’t as if anyone was going to ever check up or hold them to account – and when I was an MSc student at Hammersmith Hospital/RPMS, 1986-87, some of the other students fell out with a student called Cyril Rooney because he was so cruel to research animals. Rooney is now a Top Doctor in Ireland (see previous posts). The Institute of Psychiatry continued to conduct cruel experiments of questionable value on primates.

Michael Balls studied zoology at Oxford University, graduating in 1960, so he will have known some of the zoologists at UCNW who colluded with Dafydd et al in the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Balls conducted research for a DPhil from Oxford at the University of Geneva, 1961-64. After post-doc research at the University of California, Berkeley, CA, and at Reed College, Portland, OR, 1964-66, Balls lectured in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of East Anglia. During that time he taught at Eton for a term. In 1975, Balls moved to the University of Nottingham Medical School as a senior lecturer in the Department of Human Morphology. Balls became Reader in Medical Cell Biology in 1985 and was promoted to Professor of Medical Cell Biology in 1990. Since 1995, he has been an Emeritus Professor at Nottingham. So Michael Balls knew about the massive research fraud being conducted by Professor Robert Baldwin and his colleagues at the CRC Labs at Nottingham University in the 1980s (see post ‘Oh Lordy, It’s CR UK’).

Michael Balls bagged his job at the University of East Anglia through his friend Ian Gibson, who was Labour MP for Norwich North, 1997-2009. Gibson resigned from the Commons in June 2009 after he was barred by the Labour Party from standing as their candidate for the seat in the 2010 General Election, following his behaviour during the parliamentary expenses scandal. 

Ian Gibson was educated at the Dumfries Academy before attending Edinburgh University where he acquired a degree in genetics and a doctorate. He continued his studies in the US at Indiana University and the University of Washington. Gibson worked continuously for UEA from 1965 until his election 32 years later. He became the Dean of the School of Biological Sciences at UEA in 1991 and an honorary Professor in 2003.

Gibson was a member of the Executive of MSF, 1972-92 and joined the Labour Party in 1983 after seven years in the SWP. He unsuccessfully contested Norwich North at the 1992 General Election. Gibson was the coach of the cross-party parliamentary football team.

Ian Gibson was most recently a member of the Select Committee on Innovation Universities Science and skills. He was a member of the Science and Technology Select Committee from 1997 and served as its Chairman, 2001-5. Gibson was chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer. Whilst he was the Dean of Biology at UEA Gibson was the head of a cancer research team and was awarded a ‘Champion’ award by Macmillan Cancer Relief for his work in support of people with cancer.

Gibson attracted controversy in August 2006 after claiming inbreeding in his constituency may have played a part in its rising number of diabetes cases. However, he did later apologise for these remarks, stating he did not mean to cause offence. Gibson should have also apologised for being so ignorant about the science with regard to that matter.

In May 2009, Gibson became embroiled in the MPs’ expenses scandal when it was reported that he claimed for a flat in which his daughter lived rent-free before selling it to her for half its market value. Subsequently, he was barred from standing in the next general election by a disciplinary panel of the Labour Party.

Gibson has been married to Elizabeth Frances Lubbock since March 1974. They have two daughters. Ian Gibson is a supporter of Norwich F.C.

Perhaps Ed Balls’s dad’s friend can explain why he has remained silent about the research fraud in cancer research, both at his pal Michael Balls’s employer Nottingham University and on the part of the big boys at Hammersmith Hospital, Imperial College and other places. I’m also wondering if Ed’s dad’s mate can tell us all why he said nothing about the MSF reps at St George’s Hospital Medical School concealing the branch of the Westminster Paedophile Ring which was being facilitated by St George’s as well as colluding with serious misconduct and patient harm. Was the decision of Ed’s dad’s friend to begin a career in Labour politics in the early 1990s after so many years in science at all related to what happened to me at St George’s in 1991, after I witnessed what was going on there and the involvement of the MSF reps (see previous posts)?

Presumably because he has been cluttering up Norwich for so long, Ian Gibson will have known a previous MP for Norwich North, Lord David Ennals, who was mates with Dafydd and Dafydd’s mate Dr Jim Birley and who spent his entire career concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts. As Ed’s dad’s mate is a supporter of Norwich F.C. he will know the Labour Party activist and former Chairman of Norwich F.C. who was a pal of Lord Ennals and whom Ken Clarke reappointed as Chairman of Anglia Regional Health Authority ‘because he was such a good Chairman’ rather than because he knew all about Dafydd and organised abuse in High Places when Ken Clarke was desperate to keep the lid on it all. See post ‘Britain In Agony’.

After all these years, can Ed’s dad’s friend shed any light on his decision to leave the SWP and join the Labour Party in 1983, the year that Miranda was elected to the Commons, the Miranda who’s wife knew a great deal about Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring because her dad was in the thick of Dafydd’s associates as a Labour luvvie in Liverpool and her barrister colleagues with their Radical Consciences in the Mansfield community were concealing it all (see post ‘Britain In Agony’)?

Following her husband Tony Banks’s death, Lady Stratford – yes, there is one, she’s Lady Sally no less – vowed to continue Banks’s animal rights work, leading a campaign against the culling of seal pups in Canada. That will have gone down a treat in Canada after Lord Banks insulted them all. Lady Stratford is also a Patron of the Captive Animals Protection Society, CAPS, a charity campaigning for an end to the use of animals in circuses, zoos and the exotic pet trade.

Sally Banks, Lady Stratford:

sally Banks

Your hair dye has been tested on animals Lady Stratford. How do I know? Because by law it has to be…

‘Lady Stratford’s strength of feeling about animal protection issues led to the formation of the Sally Banks Seal Campaign, to campaign against the horrific annual slaughter of harp seals in Canada. Recently retired from her work as a senior social worker, Sally is now a freelance consultant in health and social care.’ Would Sally like to make a police statement?

Lady Stratford is a Trustee of the Newham branch of Age Concern. Age Concern holds a magnetic attraction for people who have colluded and concealed organised abuse, they flock to Age Concern eg. Margaret Hanson, wife of Labour MP David Hanson. Margaret was formerly the leader of a team of family and children’s social workers in Cheshire when Dafydd’s gang were busy in Cheshire. Margaret also served as a Councillor in Cheshire as did her husband. Latterly Margaret served as Vice-Chairman of the Betsi Board, after the Chairman Merfyn Jones and CEO Mary Burrows had been kicked out by the paedophiles’ friends. See previous posts.

Sally Banks sits on the board of Directors of the Theatre Royal Stratford East, ‘which has a strong tradition of working with young people from ethnically-diverse local communities’. Predators target youth theatre, it’s a favourite hunting ground of theirs. The young people don’t say a word because they are desperate to make it big in acting and it’s a competitive business. They are in the same position as those freelances at the BBC whom Sally’s husband represented when he was a union official years ago, one word out of place and they’re finished.

‘Two rescued cats share Sally’s east London home, together with a 70-year-old tortoise, who has lived with the family for many years’. Obviously Sally runs a sort of social services and branch of Age Concern for animals, having screwed up so spectacularly in her day job with people.

Others involved with CAPS include:

Mike Hancock CBE MP:

Mike Hancock CBE MP

Mike was the Liberal Democrat MP for Portsmouth South, 1997-2014. Hancock formally resigned from the Liberal Democrat Whip in early June 2014, until a civil court action brought against him by a female constituent alleging improper conduct was resolved. An out-of-court settlement with the woman, known only as ‘Annie’, was reached later in June 2014, in which Hancock admitted that he “crossed the line” into inappropriate behaviour. ‘Annie’ was an Empowered Service User who had sought Hancock’s advice in his capacity as her constituency MP. Hancock resignation was announced on 18 September 2014 and he then sat as an Independent MP until he left the Commons in 2015.

Hancock was previously the SDP MP for Portsmouth South, 1984-87. Dr Death and most of his followers knew about Dafydd and the related gangs. See posts ‘Dr Death’ and ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’

In between his two periods of time in the Commons, Hancock was a Director of BBC Daytime and a District Officer for MENCAP. Mike has been Chair of the southern region of the NSPCC since 1989. The has been abuse of clients of MENCAP and the NSPCC colluded with the organised abuse of children in north Wales and elsewhere.

Mike has a very keen interest in a wide range of animal protection issues, including those relating to animals in circuses and zoos. Mike has tabled many Early Day Motions relating to animal issues and signed many more. He has been a Patron of CAPS for many years.

Mike Hancock is quoted on CAPS website as saying ‘I wish CAPS well in the future and hope that it will go from strength to strength as many animals are relying on it to speak up for them when they can’t.’ This is a common sentiment expressed by animal rights activists and not one that I have a problem with except in the cases when the people saying it add ‘people can speak up for themselves, animals can’t’. They should have tried speaking up as a kid in care or Empowered Service User in north Wales. No-one would listen, no matter how often you spoke up and how loudly. There really was no getting through to anyone, not even to animal rights activists.

Honestly readers in England, it really did not matter what happened to someone in north Wales in the 1970s, 80s and 90s, one only had to utter the words ‘they’re from one of the homes for naughty boys’ or ‘they’ve been in Denbigh’ and whatever had happened to someone would be completely ignored, no matter how bad it was. This was how people were found shot dead or hanging dead from unlikely places and there were no investigations.

Mike Hancock’s sexual impropriety with an Empowered Service User was only one of a number of highlights in a very impressive career in public life. Matyas Eorsi, a Hungarian member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, said of his colleague Hancock in August 2010: “He is the most pro-Russian MP from among all of the countries of western Europe. You just have to read his speeches. When it came to debates on Putin, freedom of the media or the war with Georgia, Michael always defended Russia. Among the Liberal bloc in Strasbourg we were all stunned by his position. According to him, Russia really is a fully-fledged democracy.”

Hancock said that he would act to defend the Gov’t of Azerbaijan in Westminster. He said that he disapproved of criticism of President Ilham Aliyev’s regime and has stated that, in particular, he disapproved of the democratic opposition movement within Azerbaijan. In 2013 Hancock voted against a critical report on political prisoners in Azerbaijan.

Hancock has stated that he does not believe that the Armenian Genocide actually happened, describing it as a “so-called genocide” based on “dubious historical” claims; in March 2010, he said: “Armenia is like a headless chicken that runs around in circles. They really do not know where to run.”

Hancock is a supporter of homeopathy, having signed several early day motions in support of its continued funding on the NHS, as is that loyal servant of Dafydd’s gang, Sir Alan Meale. See post ‘Britain In Agony’.

On 8 August 2010, one of Hancock’s parliamentary aides, Russian national Katia Zatuliveter and her friend were questioned at Gatwick Airport on returning from celebrating her 25th birthday in Croatia. Hancock had met Zatuliveter in Strasbourg where she worked for the Council of Europe. She started working as an aide to Hancock in 2008, after having been an intern at the House of Commons for a while and undergoing security vetting. Until Hancock was ousted as chairman of the All-Party Group on Russia in June 2010, Zatuliveter had been the All-Party Group’s secretary, giving her direct access to all MPs with the greatest interest in Russia and legitimate reason to liaise with the Russian authorities; according to sources at Westminster, Zatuliveter had access to Hancock’s private emails and virtually ran the UK-Russia group.

Reportedly, Zatuliveter had been identified by MI5 when surveillance linked her to another person with close links to the Russian Embassy in London; the latter was suspected of working for the SVR, Russia’s foreign intelligence service.

On 4 December 2010, it was reported that Zatuliveter was facing deportation in Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre, after she was arrested by the Met on behalf of MI5 and the Border and Immigration Agency on 2 December 2010, on suspicion of espionage, the police action having been approved by Home Secretary Theresa May. The incident happened in the wake of the uncovering and expulsion of ten Russian sleeper agents in the US in June 2010, including a young woman who had British citizenship, Anna Chapman. 

On 5 December 2010, Hancock confirmed the detention of Zatuliveter and advised the media that she was appealing against her potential deportation. In subsequent interviews on the same day, he called the espionage accusations “absolutely ludicrous” commenting further: “I have no reason to believe she did anything but act honourably during the time she was working for me. She is determined to fight her corner and she genuinely believes, and I back her 100%, that she has nothing to hide and has done nothing wrong. If she has, the (security) services are right. But they need to prove their point now.”

The media quoted some of Hancock’s former Council of Europe’s liberal group colleagues as saying that in the 2000s Hancock would usually come to their regular private gatherings alongside a series of young Russian and Ukrainian women – in spite of protests by some of those; Hancock’s former colleagues said they had witnessed his assistants using the computers of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe, the liberal group secretariat, which were supposed to be protected by a password; apparently his assistants knew the password. Hancock denied claims by Matyas Eorsi that he had failed to declare all of his visits to Russia, saying that he did not know exactly how many trips he had made to Russia, as his passport had “fallen into the sea”. It was also reported that Hancock had allegedly agreed to help another Russian national, a 25-year-old Ekaterina Paderina, stay in Britain after she ran into visa problems in the late 1990s.

On 7 December 2010 Russia’s Foreign Ministry described the affair as “vaudeville based on a threadbare spy plot” being whipped up by the UK media, which could “only be regarded with pity”.

On 9 December 2010, Katerina Zatuliveter filed an appeal against arrest and deportation to Russia; in a statement released by her lawyer Tessa Gregory, Zatuliveter said British authorities had failed to provide evidence of her work not being “conducive to national security”; of MI5 she said: “I fully cooperated with them when they questioned me. I have nothing to hide and was only doing my job as a parliamentary researcher.” Also on that day, Alexander Sternik, Russia’s charge d’affaires said of Hancock: “Mike Hancock is one of those people who are known to have a balanced objective and sympathetic approach towards the modern Russia and its foreign policy.” Sternik also said that the Russian view of the affair was that Hancock was being targeted because he was a parliamentarian who “showed sympathy and understanding for the modern Russian state”; of Zatuliver’s detention he said: “We have not received, although we insisted on this, any clarification as to the motives and the reasons that this detention was made.”

At a Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) hearing on her case begun on 18 October 2011, Zatuliveter admitted to having had a four-year affair with Hancock. She also admitted that she had had affairs with a NATO official, a Dutch diplomat and a senior UN official.

On 29 November 2011, the SIAC delivered its ruling that allowed the appeal; the SIAC’s Open Judgment concluded: “Our conclusion, at least on the balance of probabilities, is that she was and is not a Russian agent. […]”. The 2011 SIAC’s ruling on Zatuliveter’s appeal noted of her relationship with him: “The relationship with Mr Hancock was enduring and genuine on both sides.”

In October 2010 a complaint was made against Hancock of indecent assault, which Hampshire Police announced would not be pursued in December 2010 due to insufficient evidence. In February 2013, a civil suit against Hancock over the same complaint was filed. In September 2013 the police reopened their investigation, asking that a report for Portsmouth City Council, be handed over. Hancock was then still a Portsmouth councillor, as well as an MP for the city. The report was an investigation into whether Hancock had breached the Councillors Code of Conduct for Portsmouth City Council, the council suspended any action as a result of the report until all other proceedings have concluded. The Police decided after considering the report that Hancock would face no charges in relation to the complaint.

In January 2014, Hancock was suspended from the Liberal Democrats after the party nationally reviewed the report commissioned by Liberal Democrat run Portsmouth City Council, which had found “prima facie evidence of his unwelcome sexual approaches” to his constituent. The report, which has not been officially published, had become available to The Guardian in December 2013.

The civil case was scheduled to come to trial in mid-June 2014, but a settlement between the parties emerged on 11 June. A week later, when details of the out of court settlement became public knowledge, Hancock apologised to his constituent (known only under the pseudonym of Annie) via a statement issued by the complainant’s solicitors at the High Court in London. Any compensation paid to the complainant was not made publicly known. In part, his statement says: “I understand that you felt degraded. I did not treat you with sufficient respect. I made you feel deeply uncomfortable and discriminated against, and I crossed the line.”

A psychiatric report on Hancock, who was undergoing treatment at the Priory Hospital in Southampton, confirmed that he was freely able to make such a statement. So after indecently assaulting an Empowered Service User, Hancock metamorphosed into an Empowered Service User himself. Tony Francis sought shelter by becoming an Empowered Service User and Dafydd has been using the strategy for so long that he was doing it in the days when the term used was that ‘Dafydd suffers from a nervous illness’. It was certainly a rare condition, it caused Dafydd to do the most extraordinary things… . Hancock resigned from the Liberal Democrats in September 2014 before a disciplinary hearing. The news was disclosed in The Independent on 18 September.

Hancock has been married to Jacqueline Elliott (also a former member of Portsmouth City Council until losing her seat in the 2014 elections) since 1967 and has a son and a daughter.

Hancock has been the Vice-Chairman of Portsmouth Dock since 1992. 

 

Dr Edgar Mann. Edgar has been a patron of CAPS for many years. He has been a Top Doctor – a GP – and a longstanding member of the ancient Isle of Man Parliament, the Tynwald, where, over the years, he held major positions in the Manx Government. At the same time he has been involved in most of the Manx animal charities and has chaired the Pets Aid League, the Manx SPLG and is currently the Chair of the Home of Rest for Old Horses. Edgar was also involved in the formation of the Manx Cat Sanctuary. He negotiated the end of the annual auction of the retiring old tram horses, who now live out their lives in peace at the Home of Rest for Old Horses, just outside Douglas, on the Isle of Man.

There was a very nice secretary at St George’s Hospital Medical School when I worked there, 1989-91, who had moved to London from the Isle of Man. She wasn’t nuts like most of the other people at St George’s and she worked as the medical secretary for the loathed Professor Stuart Stanton, who was alleged to be involved with something very big and very nasty but no-one quite knew what (see previous posts). This secretary told me that she would never have been a patient of Stanton’s under any circumstances. One day I discovered that she had been forced to leave the Isle of Man after a scandal and that was why she was stuck at St George’s, although she obviously thought that they were complete twats. I don’t know what the scandal was but those we know and love knew and they’ll have used it to squeeze her as hard as they could…

Brian Sewell:

Brian Sewell

Brian Sewell was best known as that art critic of the London Evening Standard with the very posh strangulated vowels, which ‘Private Eye’ took the piss out of. Sewell was a prolific broadcaster across news, arts and documentary programming on both radio and TV. Brian Sewell raised funds for the rescue and re-homing of abandoned and ill-treated domestic pets and deliberately developed his London garden as a haven for wildlife.

Sewell was educated at the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School, Hampstead. He then studied at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London University, where his tutors included Anthony Blunt, who became Sewell’s close friend. Blunt has been named as one of the VIP paedophiles’ who visited the Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast. The ring at Kincora had links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales, to the ring at St George’s Hospital Medical School and to UCL.

Sewell graduated in 1957 and worked at Christie’s auction house and subsequently became an art dealer. He completed his National Service as a commissioned officer in the Royal Army Service Corps. 

In 1979, after Blunt’s exposure as the fourth man in the Cambridge spy ring, Sewell assisted in sheltering him in Chiswick. Blunt was outed in 1979. The year that Mary Wynch was illegally imprisoned by Dafydd et al, the year that Jeremy Thorpe stood trial for incitement and conspiracy to kill and the year that there was panic and high drama at UCNW (see post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’). Presumably Blunt’s exposure was related to the net almost closing in on the Westminster Paedophile Ring…

In Dirty Dalí: A Private View on Channel 4 on 3 June 2007, Sewell described his acquaintance with Salvador Dali in the late 1960s, which included lying in the foetal position without trousers in the armpit of a figure of Christ and masturbating for Dalí, who pretended to take photos while fumbling in his trousers. I’ll say that for Dali, he can always be relied upon. The Hergest patient F hated Salvador Dali; F maintained that Dali was an ‘exhibitionist who kicked a blind man down the road in the name of art’.

In a TV programme broadcast on Channel 4 on 24 July 2007, marking the 40th anniversary of the passing of the Sexual Offences Act 1967 which partially decriminalised homosexuality in England and Wales, Sewell said, “I never came out… but I have slowly emerged”. Sewell was described as bisexual but also described himself as gay, saying he knew he probably was homosexual at the age of six. He had chastised himself for his attraction to men, describing it ‘as an “affliction” and a “disability” and told readers, “no homosexual has ever chosen this sexual compulsion”‘. In the first episode of The Naked Pilgrim Sewell alluded to the loss of his virginity at the hands of a 60-year-old French woman “who knew what she was doing and was determined”; Sewell was 20 at the time. In his autobiography, Sewell indicates that he lost his virginity at the age of 15 to a fellow pupil at Haberdashers’ Aske’s School.

Despite all the sexual confusion – and Sewell’s appalling attitude to the lower orders and people who lived oop north – at least Sewell liked fluffy furry things.

 

Angela Smith, Baroness Smith of Basildon :

Angela Smith

Angela took a seat in the House of Lords in 2010 after 13 years as the Labour MP for Basildon and East Thurrock. Although supportive of all animal protection issues, Angela has been a particularly strong opponent of circuses which use animals. As Patron of CAPS, she has written articles for the Labour Animal Welfare Society, in which she reiterated the call for a ban on all species of animals in circuses. Angela is quoted on the CAPS website as saying “CAPS should be congratulated as one of the most active and effective animal protection groups in the country. Its campaigns are well researched and there is a scientific base for its actions, which means I know I can use its campaign materials with confidence.”

Now for some gen on Angela that doesn’t appear on the CAPS website. Angela Evans Smith, Baroness Smith of Basildon was the Labour Co-operative MP for Basildon, 1997-2010. Smith attended Pitsea Junior School and Chalvedon Comprehensive (later Chalvedon School) in Basildon, before reading Public Administration at Leicester Poly, at the time that Frank Beck and his mate Greville Janner were busy with that paedophile ring in the Leicester area, which had links to Dafydd’s gang. In 1978, Angela married Nigel Smith, who has written a number of history books for secondary school pupils. From 1982 to 1983, Smith was a trainee accountant with the London Borough of Newham, 1982-83 and then worked for the League Against Cruel Sports, 1983-95, becoming the head of Political and Public Relations. So Angela called in at all the right places before she worked as a political researcher, 1995-97. Angela Smith was a member of Essex County Council from 1989 and a member of the Fire Authority for the County of Essex.

Angela was selected to stand for election through an all-woman short-list, being at such a disadvantage by possessing ovaries. It was clearly outstanding talent that propelled Angela into the Lords, despite her being held back by her gonads.

Angela was appointed a Gov’t Whip in 2001 – so Miranda knew that she had dirt on someone –  before being promoted to a junior Ministerial post for N Ireland in Oct 2002. In 2006 she was moved to the Dept for Communities and Local Gov’t, with responsibility for Fire Services. On 28 June 2007, Smith was appointed as a PPS to the new PM Gordon, entitling her to attend Cabinet. That was when Gordon’s agents were creating havoc at Bangor University. Angela left her junior ‘let’s sink Merfyn’ role at the reshuffle of June 2009, to enter Gov’t in the Cabinet Office at the rank of Minister of State, when she was sworn of the Privy Council and progressed to a senior ‘let’s sink Merfyn’ role. In the Queen’s Privy as well, there’s posh for you.

Prince Charles (@Charles_HRH) | Twitter

As Minister of State in the Cabinet Office, Angela’s role incorporated the offices of Minister for the Third Sector and the appropriately titled Minister Social Exclusion.

Angela obviously knocked them dead re her expertise in social exclusion in Lilibet’s Privy, because was created a life peeress on 7 July 2010. In the Lords, Smith was Labour Spokeswoman for Energy and Climate Change, 2010-13, N Ireland, 2011-12 and the Home Office, 2012-15. She also served as Opposition Deputy Whip in the House of Lords, 2012-15. On 27 May 2015, Smith was elected unopposed as Labour’s Leader in the Lords and so joined Harriet Harman’s Shadow Cabinet, which is not really something to boast about. 

In June 2009 Smith had to repay over £1,000 for wrongly claimed Council Tax expenses and service charges for her second property in Elephant and Castle. A review by Sir Thomas Legg uncovered further monies over-claimed by Baroness Smith making a total of £1,429 which she later returned.

 

CAPS also campaigns against the use of animals in the audio-visual industry, which surely includes child porn featuring beastiality.

 

Tony Banks had a celebrity friend, the American singer-songwriter Aimee Mann. Banks’s wiki states that Aimee became a close friend of Banks after meeting him in London ‘in the early 1990s’ and the song “You’re With Stupid Now” on her 1995 album ‘I’m With Stupid’ was inspired by ‘their discussions of British politics’.  An interview published in The Indie in May 1996 explains that Aimee Mann was in the UK ‘doing a tour two years ago’ when someone from her record company called and said that a fax had arrived from an MP who wanted to have tea with her at the Commons. None of this made any sense to Aimee because she didn’t know anyone, or have any interest, in UK politics, but her record company encouraged her to go and even sent someone from the record company along with her to join the party. The MP concerned was Tony Banks and it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Aimee Mann began her career in the early 1980s and has won two Grammy Awards. She was called a “lyric genius” by KCRW and was named one of the world’s top 10 greatest living songwriters by NPR in 2006. One of Aimee’s early bands was the Boston punk band the ‘Young Snakes’. In 1983, the band released the EP ‘Bark Along With The Young Snakes’. In 1983, Mann co-founded the band ‘Til Tuesday’ in Boston with her boyfriend Michael Hausman (who later managed Mann’s solo career). In 1987, Mann sang vocals on the single “Time Stand Still” by rock band Rush from their 1987 album ‘Hold Your Fire’. She also appeared in the music video for the song.

In 1988, ‘Til Tuesday released ‘Everything’s Different Now’, their third and final album. The album contained the song “The Other End (Of the Telescope)” which Mann wrote and sang with Elvis Costello. ‘Til Tuesday broke up in 1990 when Mann left to start her solo career.

In 1993, Mann released her debut solo album, ‘Whatever’, which sold modestly but met with critical praise. In 1995, Mann released ‘I’m With Stupid’ through Geffen Records, which, like her debut, garnered positive reviews but modest commercial success. In 1999, Mann recorded original material for the soundtrack to the Paul Thomas Anderson film ‘Magnolia’, which earned both Academy Award and Grammy Award nominations for the song “Save Me”. She negotiated a contract release from David Geffen and co–founded her own label, SuperEgo Records with manager, Michael Hausman.

In 1997, Mann married songwriter Michael Penn whom she met in the 1980s. They courted while Mann was recording Whatever. Mann had previously been in a relationship with XTC guitarist David Gregory. Penn met Mann during the recording of her album ‘I’m With Stupid’ (to which Penn contributed), the two struck up a friendship, which blossomed into romance and their December 29, 1997, marriage. Together with manager Michael Hausman they formed United Musicians, an independent music collective founded on “the principle that every artist should be able to retain copyright ownership of the work he or she has created and that this ownership is the basis for artistic strength and true independence.” Penn and Mann live in Los Angeles.

Michael Daniel Penn (born August 1, 1958) is noted for the 1989 single “No Myth”, a top 20 hit in the US and successful in several other countries. Prior to the release of his 1989 debut album ‘March’, Penn was a member of the Los Angeles band Doll Congress, was one of two musical guests on Saturday Night Live October 24, 1987 (as a solo artist, with his brother Sean Penn hosting), and had appeared as an extra on a few TV series, including ‘St Elsewhere’. 

I cannot find any explanation of why, in 1994, Tony Banks, a Labour MP unconnected with the US music industry, decided to fax Aimee Mann’s record company requesting tea at the Commons with her, why her record company encouraged her to go for tea with him and why they sent a representative along with her. Furthermore, Aimee’s career wasn’t really going very far until she had tea at the Commons with Banks, but after that things perked up quite a bit for Aimee.

Another rocker who wasn’t going very far who also found that his career was suddenly going places in the mid-1990s was Gruff Rhys, who made his name with the Welsh band Super Furry Animals. Gruff’s dad was Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council! Things were looking rather bleak for Gruff’s dad in 1994, because there was a great deal of noise being made about a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire which had allegedly been covered-up at the highest levels of Gov’t. There were demands for a Public Inquiry into the matter and although William Hague didn’t make the decision to hold the Public Inquiry until the summer of 1996, Sir Ronnie Waterhouse knew that he’d be Chairing it back in 1994-95, because he altered his retirement plans to enable him to spend 1995 wining and dining with many of the people who had concealed the VIP paedophile ring which didn’t exist. See post ‘Heart Of Darkness’.

The sudden inexplicable rise and construction of Gruff Rhys as a superstar during the course of the Waterhouse Inquiry was described in my post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’. Gruff wasn’t the only Welsh musician to find fame and fortune at the time, there was a whole cluster of Cool Cymru performers. Nearly all of them had parents or friends with parents who were linked to Dafydd’s gang. Gee the kids of a gang of people traffickers were just so talented! No-one had said that about any of them before 1993-94, they were marginalised and ignored, because for a start Gruff et al sung in Welsh and the UK music industry told them firmly that they really did not want to know. Gruff and his mates were very popular in Bethesda, but they were cold-shouldered even over in Liverpool, until that Public Inquiry was being arranged…

Michael Penn’s label is Sony. Sony gave Gruff Rhys a very, very good deal when Gruff was in no position – or seemed to be in no position – to thrash out such a favourable contract.

I wasn’t a rock star in the mid-1990s, although I did live in the terrace at the end of the building where Gruff used to practice with his mates before he became a superstar. In fact, when Tony Banks was faxing Aimee Mann out of the blue, Dafydd and the gang – helped by Ioan Bowen Rees’s crooked Gwynedd County Council lawyer pal Ron Evans – had embarked on an elaborate plan to try and have me banged up on the grounds of my dangerousness. The plan had really taken off after I and patient F had held a meeting with two people from the Mental Health Act Commission and told them that serious complaints against Dafydd, including those of him sexually exploiting female patients, were not being investigated. Brown had written to the managers of Gwynedd Community Health Trust – again – explaining that he had listened in to the phone call during which Dafydd had told me that he’d get me a place at Liverpool Medical School if I dropped my complaint about him. Brown did not receive a reply. I was told that Brown’s letter had not been received. Among the documents released from my lawyer years later was a copy of Brown’s letter with a handwritten message on it saying ‘what shall we do about Dr Brown’s letter?’ and with a message underneath saying ‘do not reply’.

The plans of Dafydd et al reached a high point when in the autumn of 1994, Dafydd planted a brick which he said I had thrown through his glass door of his house in the early hours of the morning. While I was unaware of this accusation, Dafydd held a number of meetings with the North Wales Police about the brick that they all knew that I had thrown through the door, wrote to the MDU about that matter and the MDU obligingly documented my brick throwing activities as fact. In Nov 1994, Liverpool High Court issued an injunction against me on the grounds of the danger that I represented to Dafydd. The evidence in Dafydd’s affidavit consisted of the details of a number of phone calls that F had made to Dafydd, including one in which F had blown a raspberry down the phone at him and an account of me throwing that brick through Dafydd’s glass door. Dafydd’s affidavit did not detail one other incident of any sort between Dafydd and I. But he obtained an ex-parte injunction from a High Court judge on the basis of it and then further plans to demonstrate that I was becoming a greater and greater danger to Dafydd’s life were laid…

See posts ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’ and ‘The Banality Of Evil’.

On 9 June 1994 Granville Bernard ‘Matt’ Arnold, the Head of Bryn Estyn, died of an ‘unspecified blood disease’. On 13 June 1994 the trial of Peter Howarth, Arnold’s friend and colleague and Paul Wilson, on the sexual abuse of boys in care charges began. In July 1994 Richard Williams was found dead in a car aged 18. He was alleged to have suffered maltreatment whilst in care in north Wales. On 8 July 1994 Peter Howarth was found guilty of child sexual abuse at Chester Crown Court and was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. Paul Wilson is acquitted of all charges. In Nov 1994, Craig Wilson, a former Bryn Estyn resident, hanged himself aged 16…

But Gruff and Aimee would soon be stars!

Aimee’s husband Michael Penn is the brother of actors Sean Penn and Chris Penn. Sean Penn was married to Madonna. Sean Penn has appeared in more than 50 films and won many awards during his career as an actor and director. He has won two Oscars for Best Actor for ‘Mystic River’ (2003) and ‘Milk’ (2008), and was nominated three more times in the same category for ‘Dead Man Walking’ (1995), ‘Sweet and Lowdown’ (1999) and ‘I Am Sam’ (2001). He also received a Directors Guild of America nomination for directing ‘Into the Wild’ (2007).

When Tony Banks was a whippersnapper back in 1975, he became political adviser to the late Judith Hart, Minister for Overseas Development, returning to the trades unions as Assistant General Secretary of the Association of Broadcasting and Allied Staffs in 1976, where Banks then remained until he became an MP in 1983.

Constance Mary Hart, Baroness Hart of South Lanark (née Ridehalgh; 18 September 1924 – 8 December 1991), known as Judith Hart, served as a Minister in Harold Wilson’s Gov’ts during the 1960s and 1970s before entering the Lords in 1988.

Hart was educated at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School, the LSE and the University of London. She married Anthony Bernard Hart in 1946. Judith Hart was a lecturer at a teacher training college, a member of the Fabian Society and a branch Secretary of the Association of Scientific Workers, the union which represented many NHS scientists and technicians which eventually evolved into MSF…

After joining the Labour Party aged 18, Hart stood unsuccessfully as a Labour candidate twice and was then elected as member for Lanark in 1959, holding the seat until 1983. Thereafter she sat for Clydesdale until 1987.

Hart held Ministerial office as joint Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Scotland, 1964-66, Minister of State, Commonwealth Office, 1966-67), Minister of Social Security, 1967–68, Paymaster General (with a seat in the Cabinet), 1968-69, and as Minister of Overseas Development, 1969–70, 1974–75 and 1977-79.

In opposition, Hart was front bench Spokesman on Overseas Aid, 1979-80. She was Govt Co-Chairman of the Women’s National Commission, 1969-70. Within the Labour Party she was a member of the NEC, 1969–83, serving as Vice-Chairman, 1980–81 and as Chairman, 1981-82.

Hart was appointed to Lilibet’s Privy in 1967 and appointed a DBE in 1979. The year that panic broke out and Mary Wynch was unlawfully imprisoned. On 8 February 1988, when Alison Taylor and I were refusing to shut up, Hart was created a life peer. Hart died of cancer at the Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehamton in 1991, aged 67.

The gwerin are featuring in the media and the news so often at present that I have not got time to do justice to their activities on the blog. In the last few days Judge Huw Rees did not imprison a north Wales man for the rape of a girl under 12 years old many years ago on the grounds that this man was of good character. Except for that lapse with the girl under 12 obviously. Most NHS Trusts, in England as well as in Wales, are missing all targets and warning that This Winter Will Be Even Worse Than Previous Winters. NHS big wigs from Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Manchester Universities want more money to Help The Poor of the north of England. Ann Coffey and Julie Bindel are arguing that juries should be scrapped in rape trials because juries can’t be trusted. Neither in my experience can judges or indeed Ann Coffey, who in the early 1970s was employed as a social worker in Gwynedd (see previous posts) or Julie Bindel, who has spent years campaigning for justice for wimmin but who never mentioned Jimmy Savile or the abuse of wimmin by the mental health services and other parts of the welfare sector (see previous posts). Ann and Julie aren’t really gwerin by nature, but in times of crisis, the gwerin welcome anyone on board.

 

When Brown and I were teenagers and crazy things were happening all around us, I used to say to Brown ‘this can’t continue, something is going to happen soon’ and Brown cheerfully said ‘oh it can continue and it will’. He was quite right. The expression we always used in the face of the insanity continuing was ‘Is there still green paint on the Renault? Yes there is still green paint on the Renault.’ This stemmed from an incident at Brown’s school when he was 14, in which the Boys From 5C – the notorious ‘bottom set’ who were about to leave school – splashed green paint over a Renault owned by one of the teachers, the Renault and the teacher being a bit of a joke. The teacher then drove the Renault around for years without doing anything about the green paint and Brown and his friend were monitoring the situation and would regularly ask ‘Is there still green pain on the Renault?’ to which the reply would always be ‘Yes, there is still green paint on the Renault’. I used the ‘green paint on the Renault’ example in a letter to the Top Doctors years ago with reference to Gwynne the lobotomist forging medical records: ‘Is Gwynne still forging people’s medical records? Yes, Gwynne is still forging people’s medical records. And there is still green paint on the Renault’. And the Top Doctors got very angry with me for taking the piss.

So I am delighted to announce that, in the face of the latest activities of the Top Doctors and their friends the gwerin, yes, there is still green paint on the Renault…

Lord Snooty The Third

My post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’ discussed the shenanigans in the Bermondsey Labour Party in the 1980s and the homophobic hate campaign against Peter Tatchell, which was orchestrated by a group of people who were not gay rights activists like Tatchell, but who were instead sending numerous children in the care of Southwark Borough Council – Southwark Borough Council covered Bermondsey as well as Peckham and Dulwich – into the embrace of Dafydd’s trafficking gang in north Wales and who continued to do this even in the wake of the most serious complaints about the abuse of Southwark children while they were in children’s homes in north Wales.

A trafficking racket was not the only criminal activity facilitated. Bob Mellish, the Labour MP for Bermondsey, 1946-82, was also involved in large scale civic corruption and was a business associate of the notoriously crooked former Leader of Newcastle-upon-Tyne City Council, 1960-65, T. Dan Smith, who’s empire was originally in the North East of England but who caused havoc across much of the UK during the 1960s and 70s as his empire expanded (see previous posts). T. Dan Smith specialised in corruption with regard to planning and building in local authorities and ended up going to prison. Bob Mellish’s Ministerial responsibilities brought him into contact with the Civil Service mandarin Dame Evelyn Sharp who oiled the wheels of such corruption in the fields of planning and construction, as well as a number of Ministers and Secretaries of State who concealed the organised abuse and associated crime of Dafydd and linked gangs. Mellish was networked with other MPs, some of whom such as Simon Hughes were not in the Labour Party themselves but who joined in the bashing of Tatchell for their own benefit and who also kept quiet about the organised abuse and local authority corruption.

I also explained in ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’ how Mellish, who was styled as the Authentic Voice Of The Working Class Cockney, did Thatcher’s Gov’t a massive favour by accepting Michael Heseltine’s offer of an appointment as the Vice-Chairman of the LDDC (London Docklands Development Corporation) in 1981. The Labour Party was opposed to the LDDC but Friend Of The Common People Mellish was happy to help Thatch out nonetheless. The LDDC decimated the lives and opportunities of the disadvantaged citizens of Mellish’s constituency and the surrounding area.

My post ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’ described the role of local politicians in Tower Hamlets such as Sir Robin Wales in the development of Docklands, again resulting in very little benefit to the local people. Dafydd’s gang operated in Tower Hamlets as well as Shoreditch (see posts eg. ‘Tower Hamlets, Paul Boateng and Tessa Jowell’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’) and a number of Top Doctors/NHS personnel ensured that they picked up more than a few crumbs from the table as Thatcher’s Gov’t bought off everyone who knew about the trade in disadvantaged children and young people between London and north Wales. One person who did very nicely out of it all was Sir Sam Everington, who as a young Top Doctor in the 1980s – Everington is a barrister as well – gained himself a reputation as the BMA’s in-house radical, raising concerns about the hours and working conditions of junior Top Doctors and racism in medicine. Sam was a leading light in the BMA when the BMA was providing Dr Tony Francis and Dafydd et al in north Wales with advice and support with regard to having me framed for serious crimes and transferred to a high security psychiatric hospital. Not only did Sam not mention a word about this or the abuse of vulnerable people which was being facilitated by those we know and love, but Sam evolved into exactly the sort of complacent, privileged old BMA fart whom he once pretended that he wanted to cleanse medicine of.

The Chairman of the LDDC was Sir Nigel Broackes, the founder of Trafalgar House, one of the UK’s largest contracting businesses. Broackes was born in Wakefield, Yorkshire – Jimmy Savile country – and was educated at Brambletye School, Sussex and Stowe School. Broakes joined Stewart & Hughman, a firm of Lloyd’s underwriters, upon leaving school. He then did his national service and was commissioned into the Royal Armoured Corps in 1953. 

After completing his national service, with the support of Eastern International, a small finance house, Broackes started buying up bomb sites in London. Eastern International became Trafalgar House and Broackes took a 21% stake in the business when it was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1963. In 1964 the company took a 49% stake in Bridge Walker, a construction company owned by Victor Matthews. Broackes and Matthews subsequently worked together to build Trafalgar House into a huge business. Trafalgar House owned the Cunard Line, 1971-98, although Broackes resigned in 1992 following heavy losses associated with a diversification into offshore activities.

Broackes was appointed Chairman of the LDDC in 1979. He resigned from that post in 1984 and in the same year was knighted for his role at the LDDC.

1984 was the year that the threats from the Top Doctors began to reign down upon Brown and I. Mary Wynch was on her way to the Master of the Rolls by then and Dafydd and the paedophiles had sent up distress flares, resulting in the arrival of reinforcements both in UCNW (Bangor University) and the local NHS, in the form of people such as Professor Eric Sunderland, Tony and Sadie Francis and Dr Lyndon Miles (see previous posts). In 1984 Alison Taylor had begun to blow the whistle on the abuse of children in care in north Wales and had been called to a disciplinary hearing by Gwynedd County Council. In Oct 1984, Alison’s concerns about the welfare of children in care in north Wales were denounced as ‘unjustified’ by Detective Inspector Gregson.

The security services had Brown and I under surveillance by 1984 (see previous posts), but nobody thought to tell us the level of concern that there was regarding the activities of the health and social care sectors in north Wales. Instead, MI5 watched Gwynne the lobotomist and Dr D.G.E. Wood forge medical records and lie about us to third parties. They watched those we know and love do that to other witnesses as well. We are now being told by Gov’t and the police that it was difficult bringing that gang to justice because ‘the witnesses were not considered credible’. Of course we weren’t, MI5 watched in silence as we were smeared and fitted up for crimes to ensure that we could be denounced as, er, not credible.

There was a piece on The Guardian Online yesterday about an activist group called ‘Sisters Uncut’ who are going apeshit about witnesses/victims of sex offenders being forced to hand over personal information such as counselling and medical records to the police in the event of their (alleged) assailants being prosecuted. The info is made available to the defence and to their alleged assailants and is used to discredit the complainants. This has been standard practice for years. It is why so many ludicrous things were written about me on my medical records, without my knowledge and it is why it took me more than 20 years and a High Court case to obtain copies of my own records. Which of course contained evidence of serious wrongdoing on the part of everyone who had fitted me up.

Sisters Uncut: I do believe that people accused should have fair trials. The answer, in terms of defending yourselves if you are the complainant, is to not go near a counsellor or a Top Doctor. They are not there to help you. They are corrupt to the core and they are there to assist a corrupt state apparatus which has abused thousands of vulnerable citizens. Please, no matter how bad you feel, keep away from them until those professions have been completely cleaned up (which is going to take a very long time). The biggest mistake that I ever made was to have anything to do with the vile perjuring bastards. Dafydd and Gwynne the lobotomist were recorded undercover trying to get their legs over me and others and they then received 100% protection and support from the state and their proud ‘profession’ when we complained. By the way, Dafydd et al also used their positions to extract information from patients about people who were a risk to those patients and Dafydd et al then contacted those people and did deals with them; they are 100% toxic.

Rebel police people who are banging on at me to name more Somerset folk from years ago whom you claim gave info to Dafydd et al in order to smear me: No. You knew what they were doing at the time – it is how you are able to give me details now all these years later – everyone was under surveillance but the info was used to attack Brown and me and our supporters. You chose to do that, you didn’t want us, you wanted a gang of criminals. That’s what you have got. If you want to mount prosecutions against them, then tell the security services to release the undercover recordings.  I’m not interested in constantly arguing the toss and defending myself against ludicrous allegations which everyone knew were untrue at the time. I’ll make the same comment to you as I always did to that silly old twat Dafydd and his minions when they demanded that I give them ‘my side of the story’ after they had made things up about me and written it down as fact: No, piss off. You’ve know what lies you have told and I am not interested in the insanities of Top Docs or Top Cops who’ve now got egg on their faces. A lot of people told the most disgusting lies about Brown and me to protect a gang of paedophiles and you went along with them. Live with it.

 

Nigel Broackes married Joyce Horne and they had two children. Whether Joyce Horne is any relation to Bangor University’s Professor Pauline Horne, the long-standing mistress of Prof Fergus Lowe and someone who knew all about Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘Feet In Chains’) I do not know. Broackes died in Chelsea, in Sept 1999, five months before the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

 

So Dafydd and the gang had Mr Big of the LDDC and Trafalgar House to help cover their arses throughout the many cover-ups. Although Mr Big was yet another person who could have named names who pegged out just before Ronnie Waterhouse finished the job.

Ioan Bowen Rees, Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council while the paedophile gang made merry in the Council’s children’s homes and who was County Secretary of Dyfed County Council when a gang linked to Dafydd’s gang operated in the Social Services in Dyfed, died in May 1999. Lord Max Beloff, Ioan’s friend, died in March 1999. Lord Max was one of the movers and shakers behind the private University of Buckingham, Thatch’s favourite University of which Thatch became Chancellor (see previous post). Lord Max was the dad of Michael Beloff QC, Cherie’s colleague and pal of both Cherie and Miranda. It was Michael Beloff QC who was the legal adviser to Municipal Mutual, the insurers of the North Wales Police and Clwyd County Council and who ensured that the Jillings Report of 1996 into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974, was not made available to anyone at all, not even to Clwyd’s Councillors (see post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’).

 

Albert Joseph Ward, known as Reg Ward, was the first Chief Executive of the LDCC, 1981-88. Reg was the son of a miner and was born in the Forest of Dean. He went to the East Dean Grammar School, Cinderford, Gloucestershire. Reg joined the RAF and when working as a pilot, he was encouraged to apply for university. He subsequently went to Manchester University and after graduating joined the Inland Revenue as a Tax Inspector.

In his mid-30s Ward had a third change of career, leaving the Inland Revenue for a job as administrator of the architecture department at Lancashire County Council. Ioan Bowen Rees worked as a solicitor for Lancashire County Council for a period of time from the mid-late 1950s. So Reg’s time working for Lancashire CC will have overlapped with Ioan’s and they will have been of about the same seniority in the Council.

A series of local government appointments followed, culminating in Reg becoming Chief Executive of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and later of Hereford and Worcester County Council.

The Borough of Hammersmith was responsible for the management of Stamford House Remand Home in Shepherd’s Bush, which during the 1960s and 70s was the focus of successive scandals regarding the sexual abuse of the young people housed there; at that time such complaints very rarely saw the light of day, so it is likely that, as the inmates of Stamford House alleged, the abuse was serious (see post ‘The Case Of The King’s Sperm’).

One of those working at Stamford House at the time of the complaints was Peter Clarke. Peter Clarke was appointed as the first Children’s Commissioner for Wales, 2001-08. Wales was the first nation to install a Children’s Commissioner and was particularly proud of leading the world in this. The Children’s Commissioner was appointed on the recommendation of Sir Ronnie Waterhouse to ensure That It Never Happened Again, although of course according to Ronnie, not very much did happen. Before becoming Children’s Commissioner, Peter Clarke dropped in to do a stint with many other favourite organisations of the paedophile gang, such as being a community care adviser with the Spastics Society (SCOPE) (abuse of clients in the care of SCOPE has been alleged) from 1985 – paedophiles’ friend and Blair’s former PPS David Hanson worked for SCOPE at the time and the Tory Tim Yeo, who ignored organised abuse in various Ministerial roles, was Chief Exec of SCOPE, 1980-83. Clarke was Director of the mental health charidee Rethink – who ignored a letter from me about the gang in north Wales – from 1991. Clarke followed that up with a post as Director of ChildLine Cymru from 1995, when there were allegations that ChildLine Cymru ignored calls from kids in care from north Wales reporting abuse.  Before undertaking senior roles with charidees which colluded with Dafydd and the gang, Peter Clarke worked as a social worker in London and Brighton, which were the locations of the brothels owned by John Allen to which children were trafficked. Peter Clarke studied at the Universities of Sussex and Warwick (you’ve guessed it…) and he originally came from Llandudno, as did Gwynne the lobotomist and many other key facilitators of the north Wales gang. For more on Peter’s glittering career, see post ‘Yet Mote Inglorious Bastards’.

Of course Peter Clarke was going to be Wales’s first Children’s Commissioner, Ronnie probably tailored the job spec especially for him.

  • BBC News | WALES | Guidelines for sex abuse inquiries

With regard to Hereford and Worcestershire County Council, it was David Tombs, who was once their Director of Social Services, who in 2014 made headlines when he told journos that in the 1990s he had acquired a list of VIP paedophiles, some of whom lived in Herefordshire and Worcestershire and was told by officials in the DoH that he’d never get anywhere if he tried to deal with this matter, because there are ‘too many of them over there’, allegedly a reference to Westminster crawling with child molesters. After I began writing this blog, I received an e mail from a retired Director of Social Services in England who told me that David Tombs had for years colluded with child abuse in high places and only went public recently when he feared that it was all going to unravel. The social work academic Peter Righton, who in his published work promoted sex between adults and children, lived in the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Social Services area (see previous posts). When Ronnie Waterhouse retired, he bought a house in Herefordshire; he was living there by the time that the Waterhouse Inquiry began. Morris le Fleming, one of the panel members for the Waterhouse Inquiry, had previously worked for the Hereford and Worcestershire Local Authorities.

 

Reg Ward was a ‘surprise choice’ by Secretary of State for the Environment Michael Heseltine to lead the new Docklands body on its inception in 1980 and for nine months was the only member of staff during its “shadow period” of operation. However this period ‘gave Reg the opportunity to walk extensively through Docklands, drawing pictures of the old warehouses and imagining what possible redevelopments could take place’. A story told by ex LDDC staffers was that Reg’s first work for the organisation took place using a bucket for a seat and an old upturned tea chest as a desk.

Tea chests virtually died out many years ago, but I’ll tell you who had lots and lots of tea chests in his houses – Dafydd. I have no idea what was in them, but Dafydd had tea chests everywhere long after they had largely disappeared off the face of the earth.

 

It is alleged that there were no concrete ideas regarding how the Docklands should be developed when Ward was appointed. Ward’s wiki entry tells us that ‘Ward’s genius was to be open to new ideas, and to seize opportunities which came along, rather than to create reports and paperwork. Ward said if he had created some grand plan…”we would still be debating and nothing would have got built. Instead, we have gone for an organic, market-driven approach, responding pragmatically to each situation.”‘

Ward invited Michael von Clemm of Credit Suisse First Boston to Docklands to look for a site for a food factory. When von Clemm suggested that the Canary Wharf site might be suitable for offices to house bank trading floors, Ward ‘leapt upon the idea and helped sell it to Gov’t’.

At the LDDC, Reg Ward was responsible for progressing the ideas of Docklands Light Railway, London City Airport, Canary Wharf and he helped Iain Shearer on the ExCeL Exhibition Centre.

Ward’s ‘forthright style’ did not sit well with his colleagues in central Gov’t, in particular Nicholas Ridley, who replaced Heseltine as the Secretary of State for the Environment in 1986. Ward had a total disregard for Civil Service protocol and rules and Ward is said to have once avoided answering phone calls from the Secretary of State for several days because he knew that the call was to say that one of his road projects would be cancelled.

Ward was eased out of his job shortly after the deal on Canary Wharf was signed. However, he is now viewed as the main driver in Gov’t behind the development of London Docklands. Reg Ward went on to work in Barcelona and Sydney on major regeneration projects before being appointed to head the regeneration of St Kitts in the Caribbean. In his later years, Reg ran his own consultancy company and was a regular contributor to debates on urban regeneration and the future of the Thames Gateway.

Ward’s wife Betty pre-deceased him in early 2010. They had two children.

Ward’s Torygraph obituary in Jan 2011 stated that: ‘Ward put Docklands on the map with a cheeky advertising campaign…and a rumbustious approach to getting things done that brooked little role for Left-wing neighbouring boroughs, or indeed for Whitehall protocol. Within five years Ward and his equally ebullient chairman, Sir Nigel Broackes, had confounded LDDC’s critics by achieving a remarkable transformation of one of the most run-down areas in Britain, turning 8.5 square miles of dereliction into a place where people wanted to live and work. His admirers have even claimed that London would never have won the bid for the 2012 Olympic Games had not Ward battled vigorously for better transport links in the East End.

Tessa Jowell was famously given responsibility for the 2012 Olympics and it involved a serious cock-up with security. The bunch of shysters which are G4S were given the contract, having screwed up so many huge Gov’t contracts on previous occasions and true to form, G4S couldn’t fulfil the contract and therefore the British Army were brought in to do the job.

The 2012 Olympics were kicked off with that over-the-top display of All That Is Good About Britain which featured a tribute to the NHS, in which Peter Pan-themed Angels bounced up and down on giant beds with their young patients. I did notice that the bad news NHS stories which I knew were in the pipeline didn’t see the light of day until that hackneyed rubbish had passed. Who was behind that opening scene? Danny Boyle. Danny Boyle was at the time the most hyped graduate of UCNW (Bangor University) (see previous posts). Danny studied at UCNW in the mid-1970s, when UCNW was completely under the control of Dafydd’s gang, who at the time of the 2012 Olympics had unlawfully detained me – yet again – in Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

‘Ward’s greatest achievement was to persuade hard-nosed City and property investors that Docklands revival was going to work. By 1986, the LDDC had spent around £300m of public money, but had succeeded in attracting £1.4 billion in private investment.

His approach was to seize opportunities whenever and wherever they arose. When the American banker Michael von Clemm visited West India Docks looking for a factory site, he became interested instead in the idea of building offices. Ward jumped on this and the resulting scheme became the Canary Wharf development. After several hiccups a contract was eventually signed with Paul Reichman, of the Canadian property developers Olympia and York, in 1987. “You could say that Docklands is a ‘happening’, a happy coincidence of opportunity and accident,” Ward explained.“There have been no master plans or detailed development frameworks.”

But Ward’s style was controversial. The Greater London Council under Ken Livingstone refused to acknowledge the LDDC’s existence and the affected boroughs were furious at having an unelected body within their midst that had sole authority for planning approval. Within the Isle of Dogs Enterprise Zone the LDDC could do virtually whatever it wanted – including offering generous tax breaks to developers…’

Red Ken would have loved to have chucked a spanner in the works of the LDDC, but he couldn’t blow the whistle on Bob Mellish and his mates sending all those kids in care to a trafficking gang in north Wales, because Ken and his accomplices at the GLC were colluding with Dafydd’s gang as well (see previous posts).

‘Moreover, the LDDC faced growing criticism that local people had not benefited from the new development. Unemployment in the area remained above the national average, and beyond the shiny new office blocks, deprivation and grim housing continued to be the norm. Local residents led rallies in protest at the noise, pollution and lack of job opportunities.’

These were the Common People who’s interests Bob Mellish and his crew only ever had at heart.

‘Ward remained unrepentant, protesting that if there had been some grand plan, “we would still be debating and nothing would have got built. Instead, we have gone for an organic, market-driven approach, responding pragmatically to each situation.” A sense of local identity, he argued, could only emerge once the buildings were up.’

I am a little suspicious of the notion that the Docklands development was ‘organic’ and just sort of grew spontaneously as Reg jotted down a few ideas on the upturned tea chest. We are talking millions and millions of public money here and it is interesting to see what exactly sprung up at Docklands. It was a global centre for banking, which I suspect is rather what Thatcher wanted in London. Furthermore, it is now many years since the development of Docklands. I have heard of no sense of local identity existing down there, in fact doesn’t Docklands boast that it is highly cosmopolitan? One of the most cosmopolitan places in the world? You don’t see many Pearly Kings hanging around Canary Wharf. Or many Nans.

‘Ward stepped down from the job of chief executive in September 1987, shortly after signing the contract for the development of Canary Wharf. Though he was held in great regard by those who worked for him, one commentator observed, “the corns he has stepped on would fill more shoes than even Imelda Marcos possessed”….

While Michael Heseltine was a great admirer of his gung-ho approach (as, apparently, was the Duke of Edinburgh), Nicholas Ridley, who became Environment Secretary in 1986, was less enthusiastic….’

The Duke of Edinburgh is not someone known for his sense of local identity, in fact he is famous for managing to be mixed race, an immigrant and a racist old bastard all at once.

‘In 2004 Ward and his wife Betty celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a lunchtime party at their home in Stow-on-the-Wold attended by many of the LDDC’s original staff….’

I don’t know who went to the knees-up but it won’t have been the cleaners who scuttle around Docklands in the small hours in return for a pittance. Stow-on-the-Wold is a Pretty Place In The Cotswolds. At one time the Cotswolds contained a lot of poor people who worked on farms.

The above resident of the Cotswolds grew up in Cheshire while Dafydd’s gang, including Sir Peter Morrison, were busy there. The President of Morrisons Constituency Conservative Party, the Duke of Westminster – a close friend of Carlo – lived on his estate just down the road. This Cotswolds resident later married an actor who starred in East Enders. Some of the East Enders cast support the work of the Mildmay, the HIV/AIDS centre which sprang up in Shoreditch in the mid 1980s. The Mildmay was founded by NHS staff and politicians who were concealing the activities of Dafydd’s gang and remained schtum when the Mildmay functioned as a hospice for the rent boys controlled by Dafydd’s gang when they began dying of AIDS. See post ‘Apocalypse Now’.

Here’s her boss on his wedding day:

This bridegroom struck a deal with Thatch: if she wrote the legislation to break the unions, he’d pioneer the strategy and in return his newspapers would give their complete support to Thatch’s Gov’t. That is one reason why never a word about Dafydd and the gang has been published in the press. See previous posts.

Rebekah’s friend who lives near her in the Cotswolds famously resigned as PM hours after the nation had voted for Brexit because he didn’t want to do ‘all the hard shit’. He subsequently purchased a very expensive ‘shepherd’s hut’ for his back garden in the Cotswolds, in which he wrote a book which has not received much publicity if indeed it has been published yet. Cameron was so taken by his garden shed that he purchased another £25k ‘shepherd’s hut’ for the back garden of his second home in Cornwall.

Here’s a bit more detail regarding the mind-blowing success which was Canary Wharf:

After Michael von Clemm came up with the idea to convert Canary Wharf into a back office, it was further discussions with G Ware Travelstead which led to proposals for a new business district and included the LDDC developing the Docklands Light Railway. The project was sold to the Canadian company Olympia & Yorke and construction began in 1988, master-planned by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill with Yorke Rosenberg Mardall as their UK advisers and subsequently by Koetter Kim. The first buildings were completed in 1991, including 1 Canada Square, which became the UK’s tallest building at the time and a symbol of the regeneration of Docklands.

Londres 097..jpg

Canary Wharf Skyline 2, London UK - Oct 2012.jpg

 

By the time that 1 Canada Square had opened, the London commercial property market had collapsed and Olympia and York Canary Wharf Limited filed for bankruptcy in May 1992.

‘£300 million of public money’ was ‘invested’ in the LDDC…

Initially, the City of London saw Canary Wharf as an existential threat. It modified its planning laws to expand the provision of new offices in the City of London, for example, creating offices above railway stations (Blackfriars) and roads (Albans Gate). The resulting oversupply of office space contributed to the failure of the Canary Wharf project.

In Oct 1995, an international consortium that included investors such as Alwaleed, bought control for $1.2 billion. Paul Reichmann was named Chairman and Canary Wharf went public in 1999. The new company was called Canary Wharf Limited and later became Canary Wharf Group.

In 1997, some residents living on the Isle of Dogs launched a lawsuit against Canary Wharf Ltd for private nuisance because the tower interfered with TV signals. The residents lost the case.

Recovery in the property market generally, coupled with continuing demand for large floorplate Grade A office space, slowly improved the level of interest. A critical event in the recovery was the much-delayed start of work on the Jubilee Line Extension, which Miranda’s Gov’t wanted ready for the Millennium Dome celebrations.

Readers may remember that there was chaos at the Millennium Celebrations, because of problems with the Jubilee Line Extension. It didn’t get people to the Dome and New Labour politicians and spin doctors were at each other’s throats. Lilibet really didn’t look as though she was enjoying herself when they all did the countdown to midnight either.

 

In March 2004, Canary Wharf Group plc was taken over by a consortium of investors, backed by its largest shareholder Glick Family Investments and led by Morgan Stanley using a vehicle named Songbird Estates plc.

Storm over foul-mouthed BBC comedy Catherine Tate's Nan ...

 

There were media reports yesterday stating that Cameron wants to make a political come-back, possibly as Foreign Secretary. ‘Private Eye’ had a great time with their ‘Lord Snooty and His Pals’ column when Cameron was PM. In 2009, when Cameron was Leader of the Opposition, the Torygraph published an article comparing him to Lord Snooty, a ‘toff’ befriending the poor. However, the Torygraph questioned whether Cameron was the original Lord Snooty, a pleasant boy wanting the best for his friends, or Lord Snooty the Third, a creation of ‘The Beano’ in 2008, a ‘repulsive’ boy who laughs at those less fortunate. Lord Snooty the Third was the grandson of Lord Snooty and had a butler called Parkinson.

I remember him well:

  • The Falklands War
  • Cecil Parkinson did not believe he was father of secretary ...
  • Lord Cecil Parkinson dies after cancer battle his family ...
  • BBC stop the blackmail – it's wrong to bully people into ...

 

I think that it was Yvette Cooper who pertinently commented that Cameron has done quite enough damage already. Sadly Yvette, I suspect that Lord Snooty the Third’s arrival in the House some 17 years ago was a good deal more sinister than that of an entitled twat thinking that he had a right to be PM. When Lord Snooty the Third was beginning his upward climb, I think it was Conservative Central Office who were said to have received a phone call from Buck House telling them that they were about to meet a ‘most remarkable young man’. Then when Cameron became Tory leader, the Daddy of the LDDC, Heseltine, gave an interview to a broadsheet explaining that Call Me Dave would be gweat as PM and that the first time that Heseltine met Camewon, Camewon was unconscious on Heseltine’s floor, suffering from the after-effects of a party thrown by Heseltine’s nauseating daughter, Annabel, a pal of Dave’s.

Heseltine knew about the paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire, he knew what they were doing to my friends and I and he tried to gain as much political capital from it as possible (see previous posts eg. ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’ and ‘A Legend Lives’).

Heseltine was behind the multi-million pound fleecing of the taxpayer which was the LDDC, as well as the similar but smaller scale ‘regeneration’ scams eg. the development of Cardiff Bay (see post ‘Corruption Bay Special’). Heseltine personally appointed crooks like Bob Mellish and Reg Wade to the most senior roles on the LDDC. Would anyone, looking at what was going on in Southwark Borough Council, have put Bob Mellish in charge of anything???

Being a courtier is a long-term commitment. Dame Mary was cluttering up Buck House for decades, throughout the many happy years when Morrison was molesting kids in care in north Wales, when Dafydd was illegally imprisoning victims of the paedophile gang in the Denbigh Dungeon and when other victims were found dead.

Carlo and Prince William are members of White’s.

Lord Snooty the Third was elected as the MP for Witney in June 2001. The year after the Waterhouse Report was published, the month after I qualified as a teacher and just as Dafydd’s gang began yet another all-out attack on me in their desperation to ensure that anything that I said would never be taken seriously. I have a lot more evidence that I haven’t yet put up on this blog Snooty III and some of it leads to you and your network.

Snooty III’s mother was a magistrate in Oxford. There was a long-standing abuse ring in Oxford and some of Dafydd’s associates – including Profs Mark Williams, from Bangor University and Tom Burns, from St George’s Hospital Medical School – rocked up with Chairs at Oxford in the wake of me adding to Alison Taylor’s whistleblowing. See previous posts for the names of the many people who colluded with Dafydd’s gang who ended up with jobs at Oxford.

Lord Snooty the Third became Tory Party Leader in Dec 2005. Just a few months after I’d been awarded my PhD and when all-out war was declared upon my PhD supervisor and the VC of Bangor University. Miranda was involved, as was Gordon Brown – and so was Snooty III.

It was Snooty III who on 4 Sept 2012 appointed David Jones MP as Secretary of State for Wales, just as the crucial decisions regarding the Macur Review of the Waterhouse Inquiry were being taken by Gov’t. David Jones is a solicitor from north Wales who spent years sharing a practice with the crooked solicitor Elwyn Jones, Elwyn Jones being responsible for wrecking the life of patient F, another victim of Dafydd’s gang who dared tell people that he knew that kids in care in north Wales were being abused (see eg. post ‘How Much Greater Is A Man Than A Sheep?’). Before that, David Jones shared a practice with Ieuan Wyn Jones, another bent solicitor from north Wales, who also shafted Dafydd’s victims, as did Ieuan’s wife, Eirian Llwyd and and even Ieuan’s father (see previous posts). David Jones is a big pal of Tory MP Antoinette Sandbach, who’s family are landowners from north Wales and concealed the wrongdoing of Dafydd and the gang (see previous posts). For the full sordid details of David Jones, see post ‘The Right Honourable David Jones MP’.

You big twat Snooty, you really should not have built your career on the back of concealing Dafydd’s gang. Just retreat into your shepherd’s hut and stay there, along with your dipstick of a wife, who is related to a few more who concealed the wrongdoing of Dafydd et al in previous generations (see previous posts).

It was Snooty who appointed Theresa as Home Secretary; Theresa who served as a Merton Borough Councillor, 1986-94, on the patch of the paedophile gang that was facilitated by St George’s Hospital Medical School/Springfield Hospital/Wandsworth Social Services. Theresa then appointed Lady Justice Julia Macur to conduct the Review of Waterhouse. Julia produced yet another heavily redacted cover-up of a Report.

 

I know someone from Bethesda who met Snooty III when he was still Leader of the Opposition. It was a teenager who used to live in the same village as me. She was the daughter of the first wife of patient F who had his life destroyed by Dafydd’s gang. Radio 1 held a phone-in competition and the prize was a trip to London to meet Lord Snooty the Third. The teenager won the competition and the BBC sent a posh car up to Bethesda to collect her. She hadn’t told her mum anything about any of it and cheerily got into the BBC car and went off to London where she was filmed talking to Lord Snooty the Third about climate change. Hilarious, WW III had broken out in Bethesda, because the BBC didn’t realise that the prize winner was under 16 and no-one even knew that she was in London meeting Snooty until everyone saw the media reports…

I thought that it was fantastic, but Brown said that he imagined that the BBC had kittens when they realised what they had done.

 

 

Perhaps the most important People’s Champ in sahf London with regard to Dafydd’s gang hitting the big time was John Vincent Tilley. Tilley was born and raised in Derby. There was a long-standing trafficking ring in Derby with links to Dafydd’s gang. Staff were exchanged between the two gangs and I suspect that the reason why the Top Doctors refused to provide treatment for the alcoholism of Kevin Lloyd – the actor from ‘the Bill’ – which resulted in his death, was because of his knowledge of organised abuse in Derbyshire, as well as that of linked gangs. Kevin’s brother Terry was a ITN journo who also died in unfortunate circumstances in 2003. See post ‘That’s Entertainment’. Kevin and Terry’s father was a police officer from North Wales who relocated to Derbyshire. He was killed in an unfortunate accident when his sons were young. Kevin died as the result of being abandoned and left to stew by the Top Doctors in May 1998. Midway through the Waterhouse Inquiry.

John Jillings, who led the team which carried out the Jillings Investigation and wrote the Jillings Report, was the retired Director of Social Services for Derbyshire. Jillings stated that dreadful abuse of children in north Wales had gone on for decades, probably as far back as the 1940s, but refused to comment on whether a paedophile ring with links to other areas of the UK was at work.
John Tilley read history at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. He then became a journalist at the ‘Newcastle Journal’. There was a trafficking gang in the North East with links to Dafydd, which sent the gang in north Wales staff and children. Tilley moved to London as industrial and later diplomatic, correspondent of ‘The Scotsman’.
In 1971, Tilley was elected to Wandsworth Council, where he became Council Leader. Not only were Wansdworth Social Services facilitating a trafficking gang, but Donald Naismith, the Director of Education for Wandsworth, was an active paedophile who was known to be abusing kids in care. See previous posts.
John Tilley was chosen by the Labour Party as their candidate in the by-election in Lambeth Central in 1978, which was caused by the death of the Labour MP Marcus Lipton. Jim Callaghan was Leader (and PM) by then, but Tilley had previously stood for election as a Labour candidate when Harold Wilson was Leader. There was a terrible problem with the abuse of children in Lambeth children’s homes and furthermore Lambeth was yet another Borough trading with Dafydd’s gang. Numerous children from Lambeth were sent to north Wales children’s homes. Tessa Jowell worked as a children’s social worker for Lambeth – Tessa also worked as a psychiatric social worker at the Maudsley and was Deputy Director of MIND when both the Maudsley and MIND were run by Dafydd’s mates who colluded with him – and Paul Boateng’s wife Janet was a Lambeth social worker. Janet was also a Lambeth Councillor and Chaired the Social Services Committee when Tyra Henry died in the Care of Lambeth in 1984. Esther Rantzen’s sister Priscilla Taylor worked as a social worker for Lambeth and Esther subsequently appointed Priscilla’s boss Valerie Howarth as CEO of ChildLine. Paul Boateng was a solicitor working for Birnberg & Co when that firm acted for Mary Wynch in her litigation against Dafydd and the gang. See previous posts for further details…
The Labour Party would have needed a very safe pair of hands to take over from Marcus Lipton, particularly as by 1978 and at the time under the leadership of Lesbian Feminist Black Woman Linda Bellos (see previous posts), Lambeth Borough Council were a laughing stock and the Labour Party feared that it would have a real battle on its hands at the by-election. They selected the best. John Tilley won and the abuse of children in the care of Lambeth continued apace on an even greater scale, both in Lambeth and in north Wales and John Tilley didn’t utter a word.
John Tilley served on Labour’s Opposition front bench, but resigned in 1982 over Michael Foot’s support for the Falklands War. As MP for the Brixton area, Tilley worked with Lord Scarman after the 1981 Brixton Riots ‘for a better understanding of social problems’.
 It was John Tilley who proposed a bill to amend the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act 1976 to make rape in marriage illegal in 1983, Tilley being someone who Spoke Out and took a firm line on sexual violence.
John Tilley was a founding member of the Socialist Campaign Group in 1982, which was packed with Labour Party Radicals who said not a word about Dafydd and the associated gangs but who undoubtedly knew about them.
By 1982, Mary Wynch was on her way to the Master of the Rolls regarding the activities of Dafydd and the gang and Dafydd et al were sending up distress flares.
Tilley’s constituency seat was abolished for the 1983 General Election and he was selected to fight Southwark and Bermondsey instead. The Liberal Simon Hughes had won the seat in the by-election earlier that year by keeping quiet about Dafydd’s gang, about Bob Mellish and his appalling corruption and condoning the homophobic abuse directed at Peter Tatchell, although Hughes was having gay relationships himself. Hughes held the seat until 2010. See post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’. Tilley never returned to Parliament. Not that Tilley was put out of action.
Tilley subsequently worked as Chief Economic Adviser to the London Borough of Hackney, which was one of the Boroughs busy with Dafydd’s people trafficking arrangement. John Tilley spent 11 years as Parliamentary Secretary to the Co-operative Union. From 2000 to 2002, he headed the Parliamentary office of the Co-operative Group.
Tilley’s first marriage ended in divorce, after a daughter, Cleo. He married again in 1982 to Kathryn Riley, a Brixton teacher and Labour activist, who was later appointed a Professor at the Institute of Education, University of London, where she retains that post. They had a daughter, Jo. John Tilley died of cancer in 2005.
Fattersley wrote an obituary for John Tilley in ‘The Guardian’. Fattersley told us that:
‘For two years in the early 1980s, John Tilley and I worked together as members of the Labour opposition’s Home Office shadow team…’
Well there’s an admission from Fattersley. Fattersley was of course the MP for Sparkbrook in Birmingham, 1964-97 and knew that kids in care in the West Midlands were being abused and placed in children’s homes in north Wales where they were abused. Fattersley also knew about the corrupt-as-fuck West Midlands Serious Crime Squad – who fitted up Ali Khan from Caernarfon as well as the Birmingham Six and many others – but poor old Fattersley was keen that Labour should not be seen as anti-police, so he ignored all of this. See previous posts.
After all, from 1983 to 1992, Fattersley and the Windbag were the ‘dream ticket’, while one half of the dream ticket was bestest mates with the man who ensured that Dafydd’s empire in south Landon grew bigger and bigger.
Gotcha
The Windbag has always blamed Labour’s failure to win power throughout the 1980s on the activities of the ‘loony left’, people like Linda Bellos and Ted Knight, the man who succeeded her as Leader of Lambeth Borough Council. They didn’t help, but just look at what was going on among Labour’s old guard: a water-tight arrangement that allowed Dafydd to run a trafficking gang which expanded into Europe.
‘Tilley…dealt with every difficulty with the calm certainty that characterised a man of principle…’
Well that’s one euphemism for a man who colluded with a murderous people trafficking gang.
‘The incident I remember best occurred during the committee stage of the nationality bill. During one, not very important, impromptu speech, I referred to “British subjects”. He asked for a word outside. “For heaven’s sake,” he said, “not British subjects. British citizens. That is what we are arguing for. The rights of citizenship.’
Targeted by Dafydd et al? No rights at all I’m afraid, we had no citizenship rights because the Windbag wanted to be PM and after Mary Wynch began her legal action, the whole of the political class got together and stuck together.
‘It was during that time that Tilley struck up a fruitful – but in some ways unlikely – partnership with Lord Scarman (obituary, December 10 2004), author of the inquiry into the 1981 Brixton riots. Their mutual admiration was the result of the passion they shared for creating a genuinely multiracial society.’
No Fattersley, Mary Wynch was putting the wind up the whole rotten corpse, including the corrupt judiciary who for years colluded with Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. You all began making friends with each other, despite the many civil wars being conducted and poor old Di was the Royal Family’s idea of a bit of PR because they too were involved in this.
  • PRINCESS DIANA
  • Prince Harry condemns paparazzi who photographed Diana as ...
Di crashed on 31 Aug 1997. Anyone remember what Ronnie Waterhouse was going in Aug 1997? He and numerous lawyers at the Waterhouse Inquiry were calling the victims of a murderous criminal gang a bunch of liars. In Aug 1997, Dafydd, Tony Francis et al were still beavering away with a great many others on The Final Solution re me, ie. planting evidence and carefully documenting things that had never happen in preparation for a case conference – to be held in complete secret of course – that would conclude that I was so phenomenally dangerous that I should be sent to Broadmoor to live with Mr Savile.
‘In the days immediately following the disturbances, Tilley took Scarman round Brixton and helped him to understand what life was really like for the people living there. As its author gladly confirmed, the report was undoubtedly better for John’s illustrations of the area’s social conditions…’
Tilley kept those witnesses to Dafydd and the gang out of the way during that Tour of North Korea.
‘He…entered the Commons as an acknowledged member of London’s municipal left; he had strong reservations about some aspects of the Callaghan government’s policies, but he never doubted the importance of Labour gaining – and retaining – power to achieve the objectives which he regarded as its purpose…’
Yes, they were really bloody desperate. Mary didn’t begin her legal action until after 1979, but her battle with Dafydd and the gang was well underway by the time that John Tilley entered the Commons; she wasn’t unlawfully imprisoned until 1978 because she went on the run and it took them a while to find her…
Labour did gain power – eventually, once the Windbag and all traces of him had been erased – and Miranda and then Gordon in his wake made efforts as heroic as any of those before them to conceal the mountain of crap relating to Dafydd and the gang.
‘… the effects of the Tatchell byelection – one of the dirtiest campaigns in modern political history – were too much to overcome. In the 1983 general election, Tilley lost and parliament was denied a man who would have made a continued contribution to the democratic life of multiracial Britain.’
Fattersley has forgotten to mention that the dirt thrown at Tatchell in the by-election was thrown by other members of the Labour Party, deeply corrupt members, who were sending disadvantaged kids to north Wales where they were sexually assaulted at gunpoint. There was nothing democratic about John Tilley.
Tony Belton added to Fattersley’s obituary: ‘John Tilley and his first wife, Tracey, appeared on the south London political scene in 1966 at a St Mary Park ward meeting in Battersea – and found themselves in the middle of a maelstrom. They lived at 25 Bullen Street, part of a ramshackle Victorian terrace, which many, including leading municipal politicians, considered to be a slum. The future of the Home Road area became one of several issues John was to get involved with, the other major controversies being about Battersea’s halfway houses: the Dickensian Durham Buildings and Victoria Dwellings.
John was part of the St Mary Park team organising marches, press campaigns and lobbying. Then, in 1968, he threw himself into the ward local election campaign. Despite a Tory landslide in Wandsworth and across the country, this marginal ward became one of only four that Labour won that day.
The St Mary Park team stuck together and, within a dozen years, seven of them were members of the radical Wandsworth council; two, including John, were to become council leaders, and others became committee chairmen. 
So they were responsible for the growth of the trafficking ring in Wandsworth, which thanks to the presence of Professor Oliver Brooke who worked down the road at St George’s Hospital, in the 1980s was a key part of Dafydd’s pan-European paedophile ring.
John Tilley was one of the main people behind Dafydd’s gang’s London branch and Tilley had been involved from the very beginning. In 1968 when Tilley ‘threw himself’ into local politics, John Allen took out a 21 yr lease on the property which would become the Bryn Alyn Community and would house children from 42 different local authorities.
Only two months ago, John confessed to me that the most fulfilling part of his political life had been that period from 1966-78…’
Business boomed! Furthermore, ‘the most fulfilling part’ of Tilley’s political life pretty much reflects the rise and fall of Harold Wilson. I bet that Tilley could have told us why Wilson made that shock resignation as PM in 1976…
‘As the organisational genius behind the Wandsworth team…’
Shouldn’t that read ‘behind the criminal gang’?
‘…he was not always the most immediately approachable of men, perhaps because beneath the surface there was a rather shy working-class boy.’
Not really an absolute bastard, John Tilley was just so shy and working-class that he simply gave the impression of being one…
‘He did, however, have a wicked sense of humour…’
I pissed myself laughing when Dafydd’s gang murdered my housemate, tried to murder Brown and then killed my friend’s baby! Then there were all those times that they perjured themselves, had me arrested and tried to ensure that I ended up in prison! As for all those jobs from which they had me sacked, it was a laugh a minute…
His formal, as opposed to social, contacts with Wandsworth and Battersea finished in 1978 but in this last year a project he has been much involved in was a history project about Battersea, where his interest in working-class movements came very much to the fore.’
The Man Of The People remained mates with them all at Wandsworth and Battersea long after he left political life then. Which is hardly surprising, they’d have all ended up in prison if they hadn’t have all stuck together and formed a tight bond with politicians from all other parties with regard to concealing exactly the same wrongdoing. Being a student of working-class movements, John Tilley would have noticed that it is a very long time since Wandsworth and Battersea were populated by working-class people. Those areas are choc full of middle-class professionals who have out-priced everyone else; Wandsworth was and is a popular residential location for the staff of St George’s Hospital. Michael Mansfield QC, the Radical Lawyer who knew about Dafydd’s gang but kept quiet even when I wrote to him about them in 1993 (see previous posts), lived in Wandsworth.
John Tilley pegged out the month that Cameron became Leader of the Tory Party!
So admired for his Principles was John Tilley that Tam Dalyell also wrote an obituary, which appeared in the Indie:
‘John Vincent Tilley, journalist and politician: born Derby 13 June 1941; member, Wandsworth Borough Council 1971-78; MP (Labour) for Lambeth Central 1978-83; chief economic adviser, London Borough of Hackney 1983-88; Parliamentary Secretary to the Co-operative Union 1998-99; Head of the Parliamentary Office, Co- operative Group 2000-02; twice married (two daughters); died London 18 December 2005.
..there is little to match a shared adversity to the prevailing view within a political party in bringing together MPs who might not otherwise be close colleagues. Apart from canvassing with John Tilley in the crucial by-election in Lambeth in 1978, in which he triumphed in the most difficult circumstances, when the government majority had dwindled to minus one, I had scarcely talked to him since he had been industrial correspondent of The Scotsman newspaper in the early 1970s. That changed in April 1982 as we both stridently opposed the Falklands War. Thus we incurred the displeasure of the party leader Michael Foot and the wrath of some senior members of the Parliamentary Labour Party who had committed themselves to supporting Margaret Thatcher’s military reaction to the Argentine occupation of the Falklands.
 
Tilley’s stance was particularly admirable. After only four years in the Commons he was already on the front bench and was making his mark in the strong Home Affairs Opposition team, powerfully led by Roy Hattersley. But for Tilley, principle took place over parliamentary advancement. Moreover, unlike a number of opponents on the left, he had really thought through the issues and had mastered the detail, both military and diplomatic.
In fact, had Tilley survived the boundary redistribution in which his constituency, Lambeth Central, was abolished in 1983, I believe he would have become one of the major figures of the Labour Party. This was also the opinion of Hattersley, who came from a very different wing of the party than Tilley’s London-left background.
It didn’t matter that Tilley and Fattersley came from ‘different wings’ of the party. Tilley was the main organiser of the London arm of a massive trafficking ring, with which Fattersley and the rest of them at the top of the Labour Party were colluding.
‘Tilley was born in Derby and had happy memories of his boyhood. He was taken to football matches by his father, who worked in engineering both for Rolls-Royce and for the railway workshops, when Derby County was one of the great forces in English club football. The Baseball Ground in Derby was an unusually compact stadium where the physical circumstances engendered tremendous togetherness. Tilley told me that his passionate belief in community and collective action was conceived, perhaps, in a curious way, at those early football matches.
From grammar school he won a scholarship to Trinity Hall, Cambridge, where he read History. His first job in 1968 was with a Newcastle journal and in 1970 he became industrial correspondent, based in London, of The Scotsman. It is often the case that local MPs develop very close relations with correspondents covering their own area, and thus it was for me and Tilley – my area contained the huge British Motor Corporation truck and tractor division at Bathgate which was then the largest concentration of machine tools under one roof in Europe.
Both Members of Parliament and members of the Joint Shop Stewards Committee received a very fair hearing from Tilley. However, as James Naughtie, his former colleague on the Scotsman and now presenter of the BBC Radio 4 Today programme…’
 
Now there’s a pearl of information – Tilley had a mate on Radio 4’s main daily news programme, a programme with a strong political angle…
…says: “It was difficult for John, we thought, to combine both the labour and industrial correspondent position of The Scotsman in London with that of the leadership of the Wandsworth Council.” Tilley had been elected as a councillor for Battersea in 1968, winning the ward against the trend in that year’s Tory landslide. He was made council leader by 1971.
So while Tilley was in south London and organising politically there he landed a job as a journo in Newcastle, on the patch of the gang which fed Dafydd’s gang both staff and children. Then Tilley worked on Scotland’s principal broadsheet while he was busy in Wandsworth with Dafydd’s London paedophile gang. Throughout it all, John Tilley was making friends with influential people in the London-based media.
Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth, two friends and colleagues who worked at Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead, relocated to Bryn Estyn in 1973. Howarth was jailed for the sexual abuse of kids in care in north Wales in July 1994. Matt Arnold died of an ‘unspecified blood disease’ on 9 June 1994. Howarth’s trial began on 13 June 1994.
Arnold became Head of Bryn Estyn in May 1973, after the previous Head Peter Burton, along with his wife and seven-year-old son, were killed in a road traffic accident near Crewe, Cheshire in March 1973. The Deputy headmaster of Bryn Estyn was also killed in the accident. Peter Burton had taken over as Head of Bryn Estyn after the previous Head, David Ursell, was suspended in 1972 following a number of complaints regarding the way that he instilled discipline at Bryn Estyn Approved School. The inquiry into David Ursell began on 15 March 1971. Ursell himself had taken over as Head in 1967, after the previous Head, Harold Bennett, retired after 26 years.
So the action at Bryn Estyn began in earnest when John Tilley became Leader of Wandsworth Council.
“John had an understanding of the kind of development which was going on in the trade union and industrial world,” Naughtie says. In journalistic terms, we thought that he had accurate and good stories and he was certainly rigorous. He understood as a practitioner how politics actually worked. He also had the capacity to stand back and see, on occasion, what was happening as absurd.
In 1974, Tilley was chosen to stand in the hopeless seat of Kensington & Chelsea. He was then “rewarded”, if that is the right word, by being handed what many thought was the poisoned chalice of an extremely difficult by-election in central Lambeth in 1978. However, to the delight and relief of the Labour Party, he got 15,101 votes, to the 9,125 for Jeremy Hanley, later chairman of the Conservative Party, with the Liberal picking up 2,339, the National Front 830, and Corin Redgrave for the Workers Party 152.’
The People Champ and Trafficker won the day. The Redgrave Revolutionaries knew something about organised abuse as did Jeremy Hanley, who also knew all about Peter Morrison and openly took the piss out of Morrison’s gay ways and penchant for young boys (see previous posts)…
‘No MP could have had a warmer baptism of fire in his constituency. In 1981 came the Brixton riots. Tilley had the great good sense to form a friendship with the distinguished High Court judge Lord Scarman, who was appointed to conduct an inquiry into the riots…’
A friendship with a High Court judge? In particular Lord Scarman, a towering figure. Yes, Dafydd’s gang excelled at expressing ‘great good sense’ in that way. I find Lord Scarman’s friendship with a mate of Dafydd’s so worrying that I’ll be blogging more about Scarman soon. The Scarman who was loved by liberal society and was the subject of many a column in ‘The Guardian’ re his Wisdom And Humanity and ability to Heal Rifts In Society.
‘Tilley’s parliamentary interests mostly centred on London and I will never forget his informed speech of 9 February 1979, made in an adjournment debate initiated by his friend Albert Stallard (now Lord Stallard). He said “South-east London, including the Borough of Lambeth . . . is known to have a high proportion of men and women who are in desperate need of help with the problem of alcoholism. Anyone who knows the area must be aware of the large number of people who live, or barely exist, on those streets, usually with inadequate clothing and food and often sleeping rough in all weathers.”
Most of the homeless alcoholics at that time were former psych patients and of them, a great many were former kids in care. Affluent people of course do end up with drink problems, but they usually have enough of a cushion not to end up on the streets. That is the treat that Empowered Service Users have in store for them. Furthermore Dafydd was the alcohol and drug abuse ‘expert’ in north Wales for decades and indeed he still is, at the age of nearly 90. Dafydd’s charidee CAIS has the contract to provide ‘substance abuse and alcohol services’ across the whole of north Wales and he’s branched out across the rest of Wales as well.
Dafydd learnt his techniques for the treatment of alcoholics at the knee of the Master, namely David Davies at the Maudsley. David Davies was the Dean of the Institute of Psychiatry/Maudsley, 1950-66 and had a reputation for admitting staff and students to the Institute of Psychiatry/Maudsley on the basis of very unsound rationale. Davies was Dean when Dafydd was admitted to and ‘trained’ at the Maudsley.
In 1962 Davies’s ‘international reputation in this field [alcoholism] was borne overnight’ when Davies published a short paper on seven alcohol addicts who all allegedly returned to normal drinking. This was a ‘revolutionary claim’ because until then it had been believed that ‘once an alcoholic always an alcoholic’. There was a snag though. Not only did subsequent research suggest that some of Davies’ s findings ‘were faulty’, but not all of his sample were alcohol dependent. So Davies drew erroneous conclusions from a sample of seven some of whom didn’t fit the sampling criteria – thus was his international reputation established overnight.

On the basis of his international reputation, Davies then set up the Alcohol Education Centre – which was, for reasons unexplained, ‘short lived’ – and became the President of the Society for the Study of Addiction as well as a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Addiction.

For more info on the grandiose idiot which was David Davies, as well as his colleagues, see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’

Dafydd set up CAIS in 1977 and at the time stated that CAIS wasn’t about promoting abstinence, it was about normal drinking. I just presumed that was Dafydd’s excuse to carry on boozing – he was widely reputed to be an alcoholic – but obviously Dafydd was taking his cue from the centre of excellence and those with international reputations.

Tilley was one of the most eloquent of MPs in urging the government to tackle the problem of down-and-outs and also one of the most prescient in asking Parliament to pay serious attention to the drugs problem, then in its infancy…
Dafydd set up CAIS, a charidee for ‘substance users’ as well as alcoholics, the year before his mate Tilley bagged a seat in the Commons and two years before Tilley began imploring Parliament to ‘do something’ about the ‘down and outs’ and ‘addicts’. The something which Tilley will have wanted done will have involved giving Dafydd a great deal of Gov’t money.
In north Wales, once Dafydd was given total responsibility for substance abuse services, the drug dealers’ business boomed and the drugs problem in north Wales exploded. There was a very clear correlation. But then thanks to Bing Spear, the corrupt mandarin in the Home Office’s Drugs Branch, the drug problem got well out of hand in London and across the rest of the UK as well (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’). Further assistance in Wales was provided by Carwen Howell, one of the Welsh Office’s most senior civil servants with responsibility for pharmaceuticals. Carwen’s mate, a Top Doctor who also held high office in the Welsh Office, was a leading light in Soroptimist International, as was Lucille Hughes.
Previous posts eg. ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’, ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ and ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ detail how swathes of Top Doctors working in the area of ‘substance abuse’ did and still do little more than sell drugs to their patients and not always while taking care of their health, no matter how much they claim that attention is paid to this. Most Top Docs are absolutely not interested in treating addicts, they really do not like them, so addicts tend to be left to the mercy of the unscrupulous and crazy, such as Dafydd.
The business model in the children’s homes in north Wales was to give the kids drugs when they were very young and very silly eg. early teens, get them addicted and then get them to pay for their habit by entering the sex industry. The psy professions knew that this was happening and numerous other people who have observed that many prostitutes are only working in dangerous conditions because they are addicts also know how the sex workers became addicted, but that bit goes unmentioned.
‘Apart from supporting Roy Hattersley, who became something of a mentor as well as a great friend to his junior colleague on the front bench in the diverse but critically important Home Office legislation of the time…’
 
The Home Office was riddled with corruption and successive Home Secretaries colluded with Dafydd and the gang…
‘Tilley raised a host of pertinent issues. They included British nationality, school meals, asbestos dangers, inner London colleges, training opportunity schemes, fuel costs assistance and the Police Complaints Board. He was a really useful member of the House of Commons and it was Parliament’s loss that he ceased to be an MP in 1983.
From 1983 until 1988 he eked out a living in the interesting position of economic adviser to the London Borough of Hackney and between 1989 and 1999 he was Parliamentary Secretary to the Co-operative Union, ending up as head of the Parliamentary Office of the Co-operative Group. Part of his legacy is a really excellent book, Churchill’s Favourite Socialist: a life of A.V. Alexander (1995), about the wartime First Lord of the Admiralty who was one of the patron saints of the co-operative movement.’
 
A.V. Alexander aka Viscount Alexander was one of the Ancients who knew about organised abuse in a previous era, the abuse which involved People in Such High Places that when Dafydd came along in later years he was able to build his power base concealing it all, because so many of those involved were Elder Statesmen or Nobles and Royals who were still convincing the world that they were Different From Us (see post ‘What’s Left? The Politics Of Social Justice’). It was A.V. Alexander who gave Ralph Miliband the name of the Vice-Admiral at the Admiralty who would fix up Ralph’s entry into the Royal Navy in 1943. Ralph’s entry into the services wasn’t straightforward because Ralph was a Polish national, so Ralph asked Harold Laski at the LSE for help and Ralph subsequently received a letter from Viscount Alexander, then the First Lord of the Admiralty.
Just two ordinary boys who went to a comprehensive school and loved their Uncle Harry!

John Tilley’s wife Kathryn Ryan is a Professor at the Institute of Education, which is now part of UCL. Ryan has also served as ‘an elected member of the Inner London Education Authority (the ILEA) and been a local authority Chief Officer’. She ‘headed up the World Bank’s Effective Schools and Teachers Group in Washington for two years’ and ‘carried out projects for UNICEF and the OECD’.
ILEA colluded with the abuse of children and many members of ILEA knew about Dafydd and associated gangs (see previous posts).  ‘Private Eye’ used to really take the piss out of ILEA – along with Gerald Kaufperson – and when the Eye had that feature ‘Clerihew Corner’ in the 1980s, someone wrote in with:
‘Frances Morrell
Has done very well
To become head of the ILEA
Without being black or working class or gay’

 

The Tories of ‘Private Eye’ would have known – if only because at one point the Eye employed Ronnie Waterhouse as a libel reader – that Frances Morrell could indeed have become Head of ILEA  without being black or working class or gay, but she wouldn’t have if she’d blown the whistle on Dafydd’s gang.

 

My favourite Clerihew, as any fule kno, was the classic ‘Sara Keays/Was Hard To Please/When She’d Been Laid/By The Minister For Trade’.

 

One of John Tilley’s neighbouring Lambeth MPs was Stuart Holland, Labour MP for Vauxhall, 1979-89. Holland succeeded George Strauss, who’s excesses were discussed in my post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’. Stuart Holland studied and taught history and political theory at Oxford University, then became an adviser to Harold Wilson on European affairs and gained the consent of Charles de Gaulle for a second British application to join the European Community. Holland resigned from 10 Downing Street when Wilson did not follow this through, including the proposal for a European Technology Community and for mutual currency support and then gained an economics PhD at Oxford. He subsequently drafted what in the early 1970s became the economic programme of the British Labour Party when researching and teaching at Sussex University. 

Holland’s case for state holding companies in energy and industry led to the creation of the British National Oil Corporation and a National Enterprise Board. His proposals for regional development agencies led to the creation of the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland Development Agencies and the Greater London Enterprise Board (now London Enterprise).

Holland was the Windbag’s Shadow Minister for Development Cooperation, 1983-87; drafted the 1985 Global Challenge report for the Socialist International; and led the first Labour Party delegation to China since Attlee in 1952. Holland then served as Shadow Financial Secretary to the Treasury before leaving Westminster to help Jacques Delors shape EU policies for economic and social cohesion.

Well they’ve worked a treat haven’t they.

Holland’s proposals to Delors for US New Deal style bonds to offset the deflationary Maastricht debt and deficit conditions resurfaced during the Eurozone crisis. His case to Delors on the case for a New Bretton Woods Conference was endorsed by Bill Clinton at his first G7 in Naples but not followed through by European Governments.

Holland’s more recent case that the G20 should constitute the governing body of a World Development Organization also has attracted high level interest from the Permanent Representatives to the UN of China, Japan, India, South Africa, Brazil and Mexico.

Holland earlier advice to Andreas Papandreou, backed by Francois Mitterand, prompted the first revision of the Rome Treaty, with commitments to both an internal market and to economic and social cohesion in the 1986 Single European Act.

Holland’s later advice to Portuguese PM Antonio Guterres included a cohesion and convergence remit for the European Investment Bank to invest in health, education, urban regeneration and new technology without this counting on national debt. In 1997 the European Council endorsed this as did employer and trades union representatives on the Economic and Social Committee of the EU in 2012.

In 2010, Stuart Holland co-authored A Modest Proposal with Yanis Varoufakis.

Holland resigned his Vauxhall seat in 1989 in order to take up a post at the European University Institute, Florence. He has held teaching and research posts at the universities of Oxford, Sussex, the European University Institute, the universities of Roskilde and Coimbra and has published widely on economic theory and policy, international trade, economic integration, regional theory and policy, social policies, development economics and global governance. Holland currently is a Visiting Professor at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Coimbra and a Senior Scholar of the Institute of Social and European Studies, Köszeg, Hungary.

I presume that the many people who have been on the receiving end of Stuart Holland’s advice had no idea that for ten years between 1979 and 1989, a pan-European trafficking ring which targeted disadvantaged kids and young people in his constituency operated under his nose. Holland will have known about it, because there were constant complaints about the abuse and deaths of kids in care in Lambeth.

Here’s Stuart, looking all important:

Modest Proposal | Yanis Varoufakis

 

 

Now for John Tilley’s predecessor as Labour MP for Lambeth Central, Marcus Lipton, who held the seat when the en masse abuse in Lambeth and the trade in people with Dafydd’s gang began. Marcus Lipton was the son of Benjamin and Mary Lipton of Sunderland and was educated at Hudson Road Council School and Bede Grammar School in the town. Miranda’s mate Ernest Armstrong who was Labour MP for North West Durham, 1964-87, concealed the gang in the North East with links to Dafydd as long ago as the 1960s, when Ernest was a member of Sunderland Borough Council, by using his friendship with Tony Crosland (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’).

Lipton won a scholarship to Merton College, Oxford. He graduated in history, then studied law and was called to the Bar at Gray’s Inn. So he knew Dafydd’s mate and umbrella Sir William Mars-Jones, a leading figure in Gray’s Inn (see previous posts). Lipton first entered politics when he contested the London County Council elections as Liberal Party candidate for the Stepney division of Mile End. In 1934 he was elected to Stepney Borough Council and then served as an alderman of Lambeth Metropolitan Borough Council, 1937-59.

Shortly before the outbreak of WWII, Lipton enlisted in the TA of the Royal Army Pay Corps. He was commissioned as an officer in the Army Educational Corps.

Lipton was elected as the MP for Brixton in 1945 and retained the seat until it was abolished at the Feb 1974 General Election. He was subsequently elected as MP for the successor seat of Lambeth Central, remaining in the Commons until his death.

Lipton used parliamentary privilege to question PM Anthony Eden about the alleged Third Man, Kim Philby. Philby used the press and the law to force Lipton to withdraw his comments, although Philby was subsequently unmasked as a Soviet spy.

So Lipton had a bit of inside knowledge that he had probably been sitting on for a long time; the most likely reason for that is that Lipton had links with the security services.

MI5: I have told you before, you really do need to amend your recruitment criteria to exclude friends of Dafydd’s.

 

In his last years, Lipton was often critical of the form that the pop and rock music industries had developed by the 1970s. On 2 June 1975, he attacked the “mass hysteria deliberately created by the promoters of pop concerts” following scenes at Bay City Rollers shows. Someone should have told him that the Rollers’ manager Tam Paton was a gangster who used and procured rent boys in Scotland (see post ‘Remember Girls, Never Get Into A Car With A Stranger!’), Lipton would have calmed down then. Later, in response to the Sex Pistols’ insults aimed at the Royal Family, Lipton argued that “if pop music is going to be used to destroy our established institutions, then it must be destroyed first”.

A youth centre in Lambeth is named after Lipton, who looked on as so many lives of youths in Lambeth were ruined. A further service to the UK was provided when in the 1950s, Marcus Lipton gave a tour of Parliament to a 13-year-old constituent, John Major, sparking a political ambition that led Major to becoming Conservative Prime Minister, serving as a Councillor in Lambeth on the way. The year before Major lost the May 1997 General Election to Miranda, Major’s Secretary of State for Wales William Hague orchestrated the huge cover-up which was the Waterhouse Inquiry.

 

Since leaving my comments after a recent post – which followed my conversation with a man who was a patient in the Gwynfa Unit in Colwyn Bay for children and adolescents, who told me that he had been physically assaulted by Angels in that Unit, but like the rest of us he barely knew that the Waterhouse Inquiry was taking place, let alone gave evidence – I have received an e mail from the person who is referred to as ‘P’ in the Waterhouse Report.

P was raped by one of the staff at the Gwynfa Unit. She wrote: ‘I didn’t know anything about the Waterhouse Report at the time. I had been visited by the police but at the time didn’t feel strong enough to go to court. I went to court in 1996/7. It was after my abuser was convicted that I was asked to attend the Waterhouse Inquiry. I think they only asked me 3 questions so it felt like a tick box exercise more than anything else.’
P has supplied me with some details about her case that are not in the public domain that simply add to the horror of it all, but she hasn’t given me permission to supply further information here, only that she had to give evidence at three different trials, as the Angel who raped her used various ploys to stop successive trials. P has given me a great deal of info about the way in which she believes that her ‘care’ at Gwynfa left her completely wrecked.
‘I lived in Wrexham but was sent to Gwynfa for treatment. Gwynfa changed its name and premises after my court case. Gwynfa is now called Cedar Court. I do recognise some of the names you have mentioned.’
I have blogged about Cedar Court previously. Cedar Court received a glowing inspection from Estyn – the Welsh Gov’ts Schools Inspection Service –  which was shortly followed by complaints from patients and an investigation which led to a report so damning that Cedar Court was closed down. No-one ever explained why Estyn had been so impressed by Cedar Court.
Cedar Court was run by one of Dafydd’s ex-wives. Gwynfa Unit was run by the Top Docs who were Dafydd’s friends and colleagues and the Senior Nurse there was Nigel Mannering Berry, an Angel who trained and worked at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh in the pre-Cambrian. See post ‘Don’t Be Silly, He’s Nice’.
‘We Didn’t Know.’ They knew so little that after every assault, after every rape, after every death and every investigation, the same solution was found – we’ll put Dafydd in charge all over again…
Dafydd’s influence never waned. I have blogged a great deal about the constant aggro that I received from Dafydd’s network, particularly the thugs of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team. In about 2007-08, I was in the Lodwig Villa Dental Practice in Bangor, paying at the reception desk after having a tooth yanked out. My jaw was still numb from the anaesthetic injection, I had a gob full of cotton wool and blood all over my chops. As I was paying there was a commotion behind me. A man was hurling insults and waving his fist at me. It was Andrew Brandt, the husband of Jackie Brandt, who Gwynedd social worker from the Arfon CMHT, who many years before had repeatedly perjured herself in attempts to have me imprisoned. I hadn’t seen or had any contact with Andrew Brandt or the dreadful Jackie for at least ten years. Yet he was in the dentist’s waiting room threatening me. I asked the receptionist to call the police. At that point Andrew Brandt started yelling at the receptionist – and the dentist who had come into reception after hearing the racket – and the waiting patients that I was a dangerous mental patient who should not be allowed into the dentist’s surgery. The dentist got me out of the back door away from Brandt.
I rang the police and reported the matter. I never heard back. The dentist refused to take the matter further as well. Lodwig Villa was the most expensive dentist in Bangor; it was also notorious because it did cosmetic surgery and penis extensions no less (the dentist’s wife being a Top Doctor), which led to a great many quips on the part of my friends about what Brandt’s husband might have been waiting for. The standing joke in Bangor was that when someone went into Lodwig Villa, they should have been asked by the receptionist ‘Teeth, tits or todger?’
I subsequently found out that the dentist and his wife were friends with one of the leading lights in the BMA in north Wales, who had previously worked as a Top Doctor in the Hergest Unit and that is why it was fine for me to be insulted and threatened by someone married to a member of a trafficking gang.
So here’s an Interesting Fact about Dr Sam Farambar who finds it acceptable for his patients to be threatened while they are parting with good money for dental treatment because he is friends with a member of the trafficking gang: Dr Sam Farambar, according to his mates in the BMA, is known to charge patients for examinations and treatments that are not needed. That is why the BMA man and his family did not use the services of Dr Farambar for their own dentistry. I don’t expect that those men paying to have their penes extended need that ‘treatment’ either but they’ll be reassured that they are Not As Other Men and all will be well if they hand the dosh over.
Sam and his wife were alleged to be making a great deal of money from those penis extensions.
Paddy  Ashdown has just announced that he has bladder cancer. Politicians and celebs are all going public with their diagnoses of serious health problems these days, particularly since I began detailing medical research fraud on this blog. The diagnoses are inevitably accompanied by tweets about the ‘FANTASTIC NHS’.
Paddy’s tweet read ‘I have been so moved by all the lovely comments here. But PLEASE this does not merit a fuss. Many go through this. The NHS guys in Yeovil Hosp. are BRILLIANT. I have the best of people and the best of friends to fight this with, which makes me, as so often in my life, very lucky’.
If it does not merit a fuss Paddy, then why have you announced it to the world and its media? Furthermore, how do you know that the NHS guys in Yeovil hospital are BRILLIANT? You will be able to judge whether they are friendly, polite or whether the hospital is clean, but you are completely unable to judge their clinical skills. You won’t even know whether your bladder cancer had been diagnosed slowly or speedily or at this stage whether it has even been misdiagnosed. To be blunt Paddy, you know sod all about bladder cancer and you are in no position to judge whether the treatment that you are receiving is brilliant or fucking hopeless. The Top Docs could tell you anything and you’d probably be none the wiser. But because you’re a tweeting politician, the BMA are going to be very, very friendly and nice to you, because they don’t want any questions raised about them in the House of Lords do they? As a former SBS man Paddy you will have good knowledge of life-saving skills in the face of injury, but bladder cancer research? Er, no, they don’t do that in the SBS.
One of the UK leads for the bladder cancer screening programme is the fragrant Lady Mary Archer. That does not fill me with confidence. Lady Mary, her husband Tuppence and Paddy have all kept quiet about the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts, including ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’, which provided details of the unfortunate death of a prostitute with whom Tuppence had sex – although Tuppence and his fragrant wife both perjured themselves in 1987 when they stated that Tuppence had not had sex with her – just before she was due to give evidence against Tuppence at his 2001 trial for perjury. The sex worker concerned, Monica Coghlan, died in April 2001 as a result of a road accident that was not her fault.
2001 – the year following Waterhouse’s enormous cover-up. Lord Snooty the Third entered Parliament two months after Monica was killed.
In July 1987, when Tuppence sued the ‘Daily Star’ for libel, committed perjury and as a result bagged £500k in damages, he was represented by Robert Alexander QC. See previous posts. Robert Alexander became Lord Alexander in 1988 and sat as a Conservative in the Lords. He was a member of and later Treasurer of Middle Temple, as was Ronnie Waterhouse. Alexander was educated at Brighton College (of which he was later President) – as was Keith Best, who as the Tory MP for Anglesey and a Welsh Office Minister, concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the gang (see previous posts) – and at King’s College, Cambridge.

Robert Alexander served as Chairman of the Bar Council, 1985–86. He retired from the Bar in 1989 and served as Chairman of the NatWest bank, 1989–99. He was also a Director of a number of other companies, a member of the Government’s Panel on Sustainable Development and Chairman of the Royal Shakespeare Company, 2000-04. Alexander was President and Chairman of the MCC, an institution favoured by John Major. Alexander was Chancellor of Exeter University, 1998–2005; Chair of JUSTICE, the human rights and law reform group, 1990–2005; and served on the Wakeham Commission into the reform of the Lords. John Wakeham had been Sir Peter Morrison’s boss when Morrison was Minister for Energy.

Robert Alexander was born in Staffordshire, where a long-standing paedophile ring linked to the one in north Wales existed and he died in Lambeth. Alexander died in 2005, so he was very much alive when Tuppence was found guilty of perjury in 2001 and jailed. No-one asked Alexander whether the former Chairman of the Bar Council should have been given a peerage the year after he defended someone who had lied his arse off in the witness box; Alexander did not offer any explanation as to why Lady Mary Archer was never charged with perjury and no-one at all commented on the very convenient death of Monica Coghlan just before she was due to give evidence at Tuppence’s trial. Before she died, Monica had talked of how Tuppence had completely destroyed her life.

 

To return to the latest advert for the qualities of Tuppence’s fragrant wife: Paddy, do you take artificial sweeteners such as aspartame in your drinks, rather than sugar? Because at one point, Top Docs warned patients who did so that aspartame was linked with bladder cancer. That had actually only been demonstrated in rats, so a few years later, the Top Docs told everyone not to worry after all. When I was at Hammersmith doing my MSc, we did the link between aspartame and bladder cancer. The people who taught us about it were the Top Docs who were involved in cancer research fraud. One of them, Professor Nick Wright, is now Sir Nick and for many years was the Head Honcho at CR UK. Who also funded his research.
Wow guys, you’re a great bunch. I just know that I’m gonna fight this and come through it… Er, which clinical trials are we going to make public then??? And er which data sets??
Tweeting about the greatness of those guys in the NHS Paddy is not going to improve the health outcomes of the population of the UK.

Over in Wales, the Baroness of Ely has announced that if she becomes FM, she might renounce her peerage, because she thinks that the people of Wales might not want an FM with a peerage. So why did Citizen Morgan ever accept a peerage in the first place? More importantly, what everyone always wanted to know when I lived in Wales was WHY Citizen Morgan was ever offered one??

How Much Greater Is A Man Than A Sheep?

My post ‘Slaves, Perfect Slaves’ mentioned the plight of the quarrymen who worked at the Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda in the late 19th century and the way in which they were obliged to give their political support to their employer who’s politics were not consistent with their own welfare. The way in which the quarrymen were held over a barrel caused them to be described by one commentator in the press as ‘Slaves, Perfect Slaves’.

The Bethesda quarrymen, despite living and working in dreadful conditions, were famous for their caban (a sort of canteen) in which intellectual pursuits such as Bible study, the writing of verse and quizzes were followed that surprise many people today when they find out about them. On one occasion in the caban at the Penrhyn Quarry, the men discussed the question of ‘How much greater is a man than a sheep?’

That the answer might not be as obvious as presumed is illustrated by an exploration of some more of those who sat in Parliament, or aspired to, while No-One Knew about the criminal activity in north Wales carried out by Dafyd et al.

 

 

Denzil Davies, the former Labour MP for Llanelli, died on 10 October, but I was too busy blogging about other matters to write the obituary that Denzil so richly deserved. There were of course tributes to Denzil in the press, memories of this man who, like all recently deceased politicians, was known for his fine qualities, including his integrity and service to the community. It was mentioned that poor old Denzil never obtained the Cabinet position that he richly deserved but of course it was not mentioned that Denzil’s constituency hosted the west Wales paedophile/trafficking ring which had links to Dafydd et al in north Wales. The gang in west Wales have received much less publicity than the gang in north Wales – the gang in north Wales were the main production line for fresh meat, particularly in terms of under-aged boys – but there was certainly activity in west Wales and the two gangs scratched each other’s backs and helped each other out when reinforcements were needed.

 Here’s Dame Babs having a good laugh at the criminalising of the victims of a vicious trafficking gang as she picks up yet another honour:
  • Dame Barbara Mills, British barrister, Director of Public ...
Previous posts (eg. ‘The Village’) have described how, throughout the middle years of the twentieth century, Croesor in north Wales was a favourite location for visits and extended stays from the Bloomsbury Set – who lived near Denzil’s Chambers – as a result of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who owned the Brondanw estate at Llanfrothern/Croesor, being married to Amabel Strachey, daughter of John St Loe Strachey, who owned ‘The Spectator’.
So Denzil Davies’s Chambers were at the centre of the action.

Davies served as a Treasury Minister in Callaghan’s Gov’t. It was Callaghan who allowed himself to be used by Leo Abse to ensure that the legislation regarding children in care was rewritten in the form of the Children’s Act 1975, which resulted in hundreds of kids in care being sent to children’s homes in north Wales. Callaghan and his wife Audrey concealed organised abuse. Audrey Callaghan was appointed Chair of the Governors of Great Ormond Street Hospital in 1969. Audrey was Chair throughout the years that Savile popped in and out of that institution assaulting the patients. See post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’. Abse was a bent lawyer who was the subject of an historical abuse investigation himself and was also the best pal of the child molester George Thomas. Abse boasted of threatening and paying off people who threatened to expose George Thomas. See post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’.

Denzil Davies was a Eurosceptic who opposed the creation of the National Assembly for Wales.

Davies served in a number of Opposition posts after Thatch was elected in 1979. He was Shadow Secretary of State for Wales, March 1983-Oct 1983, in Foot’s Shadow Cabinet; Dafydd et al were busy then, their activities were known to Foot and his Shadow Cabinet and Mary Wynch was on her way to the Master of The Rolls. In June 1983, George Thomas, the long-serving Labour MP for Cardiff West and the Speaker of the Commons, retired and was elevated to the Lords as Viscount Tonypandy. George Thomas was a Labour MP but he was very friendly with the one person who benefited greatly from Dafydd’s crimes:

Denzil of Complete Integrity then served as Shadow Secretary of State for Defence, Oct 1984-June 1988, under the Windbag. Like John Silkin – Denzil’s predecessor as Shadow Defence Secretary and someone else who knew all about Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see previous posts for information on Labour Party Royalty famille Silkin) – Denzil resigned from the front bench in June 1988 in protest at the Windbag’s ‘management style’. The trigger for Denzil’s resignation was the Windbag’s announcement, without reference to Davies or the Shadow Cabinet, of a change in Labour’s defence policy, from unilateral nuclear disarmament to multilateral nuclear disarmament and then back to unilateral nuclear disarmament, over a period of three days.

 

In a tank Herr Thatchler leads the charge; Jock Steel and Doc “Killer” Owen are helplessly entrenched; and “Fatty” Heffer looks cynically on as “Taffy” Kinnock leads the retreat.

In 2005 ‘Wales Online’ reported on a TV programme which had discussed these events. In the programme the Windbag denied that he kept Denzil in the dark about the changes to defence policy. Describing Denzil’s resignation as “a devastating surprise”, the Windbag stated that he regretted it if his actions had led to Denzil’s resignation.

The Windbag commented: ‘Propriety would have required that, in a perfect world, I should have had a chat with Denzil Davies, at the very latest on the Saturday night. But I didn’t observe this propriety, and if I subscribed to what I regard to be quite a tragic end to a potentially hugely fruitful political career, then I deeply regret that.’

Propriety would have required Windbag that you should have blown the whistle on a bunch of gangsters who were running an international trafficking gang and killing witnesses, but because some of the key movers and shakers were mates with you, Glenys and had even been mates with Glenys’s parents, you tried to use their crimes for your own ends, as did Michael Foot before you.

In June 1988, the Windbag’s mate Dr Tony Francis was in hot pursuit of me, along with the BMA and because I was by then working for the Cancer Research Campaign, Francis was even using his network to infiltrate the Cancer Research Campaign. It blew up in his face when Francis’s mate Dr Peter Macguire chose to involve himself in a research fraud which became public in 1990 and sadly led to the presumed suicide of one of the other cancer researchers involved, Prof Tim McElwain (see posts ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’).

In June 1988, Alison Taylor, Mary and I were refusing to shut up about Dafydd’s gang and there was trouble in store for Dafydd’s associates in Cleveland as well, because Elizabeth Butler-Sloss was near to completing her Report on the chaos that they had caused up there (see post ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’).

The Windbag’s gross incompetence re a defence policy would have been neither here nor there in the face of what would have happened to the whole lot of them in Parliament had anyone had listened to Alison, Mary and me.

Denzil would have good reason to fear an expose himself. Not only was his constituency on the territory of the gang which was linked with Dafydd’s gang, but Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council, 1980-91, who allowed Dafydd’s gang free reign in the children’s homes of Gwynedd, had served as County Secretary of Dyfed County Council, 1973/4-80 and the staff of Dyfed County Council were facilitating the gang in Denzil’s neck of the woods. Prior to that Ioan had worked as a solicitor for Cardiff Council and Pembrokeshire Council, while organised abuse prevailed in those areas. Wherever there was Ioan, there was abuse; he got off to a good start by beginning his career as a solicitor’s clerk in Denbighshire County Council back at the dawn of time.

There were so many complaints about the happenings at the children’s home in Llanfairpwll on Anglesey, that in the early 1980s Ioan was obliged to hold an investigation into the abuse of children in homes run by Gwynedd County Council. Who did Ioan commission to investigate? ‘Senior officers from Dyfed County Council’ – his old mates who were facilitating the gang operating on Denzil’s patch. Ioan’s mates from Dyfed reassured everyone that there was nothing to worry about. One of the children’s homes run by Gwynedd County Council was in Holyhead, the home town of Baroness Windbag, who’s parents had been Holyhead Councillors for years and who were also mates with Lord Cledwyn, Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79. Lord Cledwyn had served as Secretary of State for Wales, 1966-68, under Harold Wilson, when a Minister called George Thomas served under Cledwyn. Lord Cledwyn’s abilities were called upon when Paedophiles In Distress flares were sent up in 1995; Lord Cledwyn was appointed President of UCNW in that year when Sir William Mars-Jones stepped down and Cledwyn remained in the role until 2000, spanning the period of time covering the row over the suppression of the Jillings Report and then the duration of the Waterhouse Inquiry. See post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.

See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ for more details of the Ioan-related fun.

Denzil was inducted into the art of colluding with organised abuse as soon as he began his journey up the ladder in the Commons. In 1974 Denzil was appointed PPS to the Welsh Secretary, barrister Lord John Morris, who has been a loyal paedophiles’ friend throughout his long life. As Welsh Secretary, 1974-79, under Wilson and then Callaghan, John Morris oversaw some real horrors, including: the massive expansion of Dafydd’s gang and John Allen becoming a millionaire as more and more children in care were sent to north Wales children’s homes; kids in care and psych patients being found dead in Risley Remand Centre; chaos at UCNW (Bangor University); Mary Wynch fleeced of her property, unlawfully arrested and imprisoned and the most appalling abuses at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. That gang were out of hand pre-1974, but as a result of John Morris, they ended up running north Wales.

Lord John Morris, legal adviser to the abusive state:

Lord John Morris - Aberystwyth University

 

 

John Morris was brought out of mothballs by Miranda to serve as Attorney General for England and Wales as well as AG for N Ireland, 1997-99. Miranda obviously needed a particularly safe pair of hands at the time, what with the Waterhouse Inquiry underway and the horrors of Kincora needing to be kept under wraps because dear old Mo Mowlam with her Wimmin’s Compassion was steering everyone through the Peace Process.

Brave Mo, All Heart, Both Before And After:

  • Mo Mowlam | History TV
  • Mo Mowlam | Autographs Mad

Mo did of course lie about the extent to which that brain tumour was affecting her health and her Top Doctor knew this. For much of her time in the N Ireland Office, Mo was too ill to perform properly. There were a number of incidents which Miranda has kept quiet about. But then Miranda kept quiet about the trafficking gang in the north east of England with links to Dafydd that Mo also remained silent about and of course Miranda kept quiet about Kincora.

 

To continue with tradition, Denzil succeeded the Parliamentary seat of Jim Griffiths, the first ever Welsh Secretary, who presided over the corruption that had been built into the Welsh Office from its very creation.

See post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’ for further info on John Morris and Jim Griffiths.

Denzil Davies made an unsuccessful bid against Fattersley for the Labour Party Deputy Leadership in 1983.  Dear old Denzil fell flat on his face and the Labour Party ended up with the ‘dream ticket’ of the Windbag and Fattersley, who were known to hate each other and provided much entertainment for the readers of ‘Private Eye’.

Roy Hattersley: Birmingham MP and Labour deputy leader ...

 

Denzil was one of the few Labour MPs with Ministerial experience remaining after Miranda’s 1997 landslide, because Labour had been out of power for so long. However Denzil didn’t like Miranda and was described as, until Denzil stood down in 2005, ‘a thorn in Blair’s side’ and a backbench rebel re Britain’s membership of the EU. Denzil could have been a rather greater thorn in Miranda’s side had he exposed the wrongdoing of Ioan Bowen Rees, because Ioan was mates with Lord Max Beloff, the father of Cherie’s colleague Michael Beloff QC, who was a pal of Cherie and Miranda and a visitor to Chequers. But as Michael Beloff had helped to conceal the abuse and criminality in north Wales himself, Denzil didn’t dare say a word.

Denzil was described in his obituaries as having a ‘brilliant mind’ – a lot of those who concealed Dafydd’s wrongdoing were/are reputed to have ‘brilliant minds’ rather than being unscrupulous unprincipled old gits who’d do anything for the votes of Top Docs and others with vested interests – but ‘volatile’. One of his obits described in detail how Denzil’s resignation was planned to cause maximum damage to the Windbag and was part of a plot with others. Not that a great deal of planning would be needed to damage the Windbag…

Denzil Davies married Mary Ann Finlay in 1963. They had a son and daughter and divorced in 1988. In 1989, Davies married Ann Carlton, ‘the journalist and author who had previously worked as a member of Labour Party research staff’. Denzil and Ann’s marriage was described as blissfully happy and fruitful.

Ann Carlton wrote a very interesting article for ‘The Spectator’ in 2013, in the wake of the insulting media comment about Ralph Miliband and his alleged Hatred Of This Country. Carlton maintains that Ralph didn’t Hate Britain, but he did want to transform Britain into a communist state, that he would have preferred that to Harold Wilson’s Britain and that Ralph chose to ignore the abuses of the Soviet regime. So far so standard for Marxists of Ralph’s generation and circle. However, Carlton does produce a few gems. How did she know Ralph? She was his research assistant at the LSE, 1964-65 and was supposed to be using the work that she did with Ralph for her PhD.  Ann describes Ralph as an unreasonable and callous boss who made her redundant after six months through no fault of her own.

The very week that Ralph made Ann redundant, the Labour Party advertised for a research assistant on housing policy – the topic of Ann’s intended PhD. She was offered the job and was asked by the Chairman of Labour’s interviewing panel: ‘You are married, so presumably you would be willing to accept the lowest pay grade?’ Ann wrote: ‘I swallowed my pride and feminism and said yes, because I needed the job. But I was learning that those who pontificate most loudly about the rights of the workers en masse are often those who, faced with an individual worker, can be less than perfect in their treatment of that worker.’

You are quite correct Ann, I’ve seen a lot of that myself. I am also acutely aware of Wimmin who are Feminists who know that other Wimmin were/are being abused and terrorised by eg. Dafydd’s gang in north Wales but who did not say a word. Ann Carlton was one of those Wimmin. Not only was Ann married to Denzil Davies who was one of those concealing the most serious crimes, but previously Ann had been a SPAD to Tony Crosland and John Silkin and was local government officer for the Labour Party, 1966-74. Tony Crosland knew about Dafydd and the related gang in the north east of England as long ago as the mid-1960s and kept it all quiet and John Silkin had all the crap on Dafydd et al as well. See previous posts.

Ann Carlton stated in her article in ‘The Spectator’ that Ralph genuinely wanted to see an end to the privileges of the bourgeoisie. So that must be why the whole extended family maxed out on their closeness to Uncle Harry Of The Privileged Top Doctors at Guy’s and Tommy’s and why Ralph’s dreadful offspring, Ed and David, both felt that they had a God-given right to a job as Leader of the Labour Party and PM. After Ed won the scrap to become Leader of the Labour Party, what did Ed use as his USP as a potential future PM? Uncle Harry’s love for and dedication to the NHS of course. I and another witness to wrongdoing in the NHS were threatened at gunpoint and by the time that Ed was advertising Uncle Harry and his service to the Poor, the NHS had wrecked my life yet again. But then in the 1970s and 80s when Denzil, Footie and the Windbag were ignoring Dafydd’s gang, kids in care in north Wales were being sexually assaulted at gunpoint.

Ann Carlton mentioned in ‘The Spectator’ that she never got her PhD. Well I got mine Ann. Because I had John Fazey as a supervisor, not Ralph fucking Miliband and the Labour Party. Although John Fazey and his wife were bullied out of their jobs at Bangor University as a punishment beating by Professor Fergus Lowe because I finished that PhD. But then the Vice-Chancellor’s wife died at the hands of the Top Doctors.

Denzil Davies was succeeded as the Labour MP for Llanelli by Nia Griffith, who did teacher training at UCNW. Who also knows about Dafydd’s gang and knew about them long before I did (see previous posts). Nia was formerly married to a social worker from Dyfed. But now she’s a lesbian, so she’ll be OK among the Wimmin.

I mentioned above that the Windbags’ longstanding friend Cledwyn Hughes aka Lord Cledwyn was the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79. Lord Cledwyn was a solicitor from Holyhead who was Mr Labour Party in north Wales for years until his – and his Party’s – influence on Anglesey waned during the late 1970s and became almost non-existent during the years when the Windbag Transformed The Labour Party and spread that silly rumour around that when he and Glenys had been the stars of what became Cardiff University, they had been known to other students ‘The Power And The Glory’. It really wasn’t true was it Windbag? You were known as nothing more than a drunken wally and Glenys was a future primary school teacher, not a fucking astronaut.

In my post ‘Slaves, Perfect Slaves’ I described how some constituencies which housed the hubs of the trafficking gangs – such as Caernarfon – were for the years of the gangs’ dominance very safe seats. The gang owned everything and everyone, including the politicians and the electorate were indeed Perfect Slaves. Other constituencies on the edges of the gangs’ HQs were often highly marginal and every vote was fought for, including of course the votes of those professionals involved in serious organised crime.

Anglesey – later renamed Ynys Mon – evolved from one of the very safe seats to one of the highly marginal ones dominated by allegations of dirty tricks and corruption. In recent years Anglesey has become famed for its nightmare of a County Council, which is riddled with serious corruption and has seen some Councillors go to prison, but being Anglesey they resumed their roles as Councillors when they came out of prison. If one doesn’t actually live on Anglesey and have to tolerate the consequences of a smouldering wreckage of a Council which cannot run anything, the shenanigans of Anglesey County Council – with its Council officers who are dogging locally but who are not prosecuted because they drive the only top of the range Merc sports in Llangefni so the police knew who was doing the dogging and said nothing -are very funny and a source of wonder. However for those who have doings with them all out at Llangefni, it is more often a case of ‘it’s those bastards on Anglesey again’. When I lived in north Wales I enjoyed many a conversation with others as to whether Anglesey really was the most corrupt Council in north Wales or whether Gwynedd or Conwy or indeed Denbighshire or Wrexham were simply better at concealing their wrongdoing. Then I discovered that there were some pretty exemplary corrupt Councils in other regions of Wales as well.
The corruption in Anglesey County Council has a long and glorious past, it was one of the first things that I was told about when I moved there in 1983 and I was only a student at the time. I have since found out that the local authority corruption went back decades, as of course did the abuse of children and vulnerable people on Anglesey. Lucille Hughes being a children’s social worker there, 1966-69 and Dafydd carrying out ‘research into incest’ on Anglesey in the late 1950s/early 60s weren’t good signs.

Anglesey was held by Lady Megan Lloyd George for the Liberals from 1929 and until 1945 it was a safe seat for Lady Megan. In 1945 Cledwyn Hughes, as the Labour candidate, came close to taking the constituency; Cledwyn polled 11,52 and Lady Megan 12,610 votes. Cledwyn had another go in 1950; he polled 11,759 votes to Lady Megan’s 13,688.

It was in 1951 that Cledwyn won Anglesey by a narrow margin, polling 11,814 to Lady Megan’s 11,219, although I don’t know to what extent Cledwyn’s win was a result of wider national trends or whether there were over-riding local factors for Cledwyn’s gradual dominance on Anglesey. Cledwyn was a big pal of Glenys Kinnock’s parents who were both active in the Labour Party in Holyhead/Anglesey.

In 1955 Cledwyn polled 13,986 as compared to the Liberal candidate’s 9,414 votes. Lady Megan was no longer the Liberal candidate for Anglesey, that year it was John William Hughes. John William Hughes was the Known Homosexual who had tried it on with Ronnie Waterhouse when poor shocked old Ronnie was poor shocked young Ronnie. Ronnie was out campaigning with That Awful Man when Hughes propositioned Ronnie and, at least according to Ronnie’s autobiography, Ronnie Didn’t Tell His Father; Ronnie came from a well-known Liberal Nonconformist family in north Wales and Ronnie’s dad was a leading figure in the Liberal Party. Ronnie stated that Hughes became ‘well known’ for his propositioning of other men. Hughes propositioned Ronnie before Hughes stood for Anglesey, so whether Ronnie really didn’t tell his dad or not I don’t know. What is clear is that the Liberal Party fielded a candidate who certainly by 1955 was known for trying his luck with young men, while Gwynne was locking men up in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and even lobotomising some of them for being gay.

The 1955 General Election saw Plaid field a candidate on Anglesey, a J. Rowland Jones, who polled 2,183 votes, coming behind the Tory candidate.

 

Cledwyn was safely home and dry on Anglesey by 1959. In 1959, Cledwyn polled 13,249, his nearest rival being the Tory candidate, O. Meurig Hughes, with 7,005. The Plaid candidate was R.Tudor Jones who polled 4,121. Like Cledwyn, R. Tudor Jones was a friend of Dafydd and the gang who blighted the earth for a long time; Jones didn’t peg out until July 1998, by which time Ronnie Waterhouse was at an advanced stage with the cover-up.

Robert Tudur Jones was ‘one of the country’s leading theologians. His nationalistic stance, combined with Calvinist doctrine, created an integrated vision that was significant to the religious life of Christian Wales in the later half of the 20th century.’

So that’s why there was a network of people traffickers known to R. Tudor Jones operating across the whole of Wales throughout that time!

Jones was born at Tyddyn Gwyn, Llanystumdwy, north Wales but soon the family moved to Rhyl. Christian faith was the foundation of family life as his parents experienced the spiritual zeal of the 1904-05 Welsh Revival. The family were members of the local Welsh Congregational Church and while other children recited verses on the Sunday morning, as it is a tradition in Nonconformist churches, Jones would recite a whole chapter. In 1971 Dafydd told the Annual Meeting of the Welsh Baptist Union that learning Bible verses in Welsh as a child could protect against a ‘serious moral collapse’ in later life (see post ‘A Serious Moral Collapse’), so presumably R. Tudur Jones was armour plated against such an eventuality.

Though Jones was raised as a Christian, it is said that the turning point in his life was at an evangelistic crusade at Rhyl Pavilion where he believed he encountered God. Rhyl now has a massive heroin problem thanks to Dafydd; Rhyl is not the sort of place where one would expect to find God, although I do know that God is not supposed to be that fussy. In fact God is so unfussy regarding where he encounters people, that I know one chaplain in north Wales who used to boast of meeting God ‘on the toilet while having a good crap’.

Who is this chaplain who equated to the joke clergyman of ‘Not The Nine O Clock News’ fame, who wanted to allow Satan into the Church? It is of course the Rev Wynne Roberts, the chaplain at Ysbyty Gwynedd, who kept quiet about the abuse of patients and the suicides that he witnessed and who only got a job as the chaplain at Ysbyty Gwynedd because he was kicked out of his C of E parish when he had a fling with one of his parishioners, both Wynne and his flibbertigibbet being married to other people at the time. Wynne was subsequently given a senior manager’s job with the NHS in north Wales and in recent years he has taken to impersonating Elvis to cheer everyone up on the wards, which the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board passes off as ‘music therapy’. See post ‘Music Therapy Anyone?’. Wynne Chairs – or at least he did and he probably still does – the Ethics Committee at Ysbyty Gwynedd and Bangor University’s School of Healthcare Sciences. Wynne’s son was a student nurse at Bangor while Wynne Chaired the Ethics Committee.

 

R. Tudur Jones’ interest in ecclesiastical history began when he was a pupil at Rhyl Grammar School. His history teacher there, S.M. Houghton, taught Jones about the Puritans and he read New Testament Greek with the Headmaster.

S.M. – Sidney Maurice – Houghton was a prolific writer on theological matters, but certainly an interesting inspirational figure for a teenaged boy:

Sidney Maurice Houghton (1899-1987) was born in Salford, Manchester to Joseph and Edith (née Edge) Houghton. Both his parents were ardent Methodists, and at one time it was thought their son would enter the ministry of that denomination. He had an early interest in books, inherited from his father.

He served in the Army for the last year of the First World War, involved in administrative and clerical duties in a Searchlight Unit on the Somme in France. Returning to England, he was much influenced by the lives of his wife-to-be’s parents (Strict & Particular Baptists) and family life, and came to love the ‘doctrines of grace’. After completing degrees at Manchester University, in 1925 he obtained a post teaching History in Rhyl Grammar School, where he was to remain for the next 35 years.

From 1960 until his death in 1987 he was the chief literary and editorial advisor to the Banner of Truth Trust. His ‘Reminiscences’ are published by the Trust in My Life and Books. S. M. Houghton is also the author of the Trust’s ‘Sketches From Church History’. 

 

 

After Rhyl Grammar School, R. Tudur Jones won a Scholarship to Jesus College, Oxford, but his father insisted that he attend the University of Wales instead. Jones therefore went to UCNW, graduating in philosophy in 1942 and afterwards completed a Bachelor’s degree in Divinity at Bangor. Jones then left Bangor for Mansfield College, Oxford to do his PhD.

Returning from Oxford in 1948 and now married, Jones was ordained as minister of the Seion Welsh Congregationalist Chapel, Aberystwyth. After only two years he left Seion to pursue an academic career. In 1950 Jones was appointed as tutor in Church History at the Bala-Bangor Theological Seminary, Bangor, north Wales and by 1965 he had risen to be the Principal of Bala-Bangor, a post he held until the Welsh Congregationalists merged their two colleges, Bala-Bangor and the Memorial College, Aberystwyth in 1988.

J.E. Daniel, the father of the corrupt judge Huw Daniel, was a fellow and then Professor at the Bala-Bangor Theological College. J.E. Daniel was President of Plaid, 1939-43 and knew Dafydd when Dafydd was a young Plaid activist and standing as a Plaid Parliamentary candidate himself. The father of Dafydd Iwan, the one time Leader of Gwynedd County Council and Alun Ffred, who was also Leader of Gwynedd County Council and the Plaid AM for Arfon, 2007-16, also either trained or worked at the Bala-Bangor Theological College. See post ‘Tan yn Llyn’. J.E. Daniel died in a road accident in 1962. R. Tudur Jones was Vice-President of Plaid, 1957-62 and he knew Dafydd through Plaid if not through other ways as well.

 

After his semi-retirement in 1988 R. Tudur Jones accepted a post as an honorary lecturer in the Theology Department of the UCNW, a post he held until 1997. The Theology Dept at UCNW was famously mad and carried out vindictive attacks on students. Theology at Bangor attracted some very able students because theology was a highly esteemed subject in the eyes of certain circles in Wales, but some of the best students would change course to escape the crazed theologians, although they would only admit to their friends that this was why they were changing course. It was even more confusing because on the surface the theologians often had the appearance of friendly old boys.

When Brown lived with my friends and I on Anglesey in 1984, he used to spend a lot of time in the library in UCNW and he told me about a lovely old chap who would always stop and chat. All that Brown knew about him was that he was someone from Theology and that he always wore his academic gown which had dog turds on it. Years later I mentioned the elderly theologian who had dog turds on his gown to some friends and I was greeted by ‘oh that’ll have been the old Professor of Bible Studies, he was a real bastard’ and it was explained to me that ALL the theologians were real bastards, they hated each other and they hated the students. Then I became close friends with a number of theology students who confirmed that yes, they were all real bastards up there…

The Bangor tradition of Bastards In The Theology Dept continued until just a few years ago, when two of the Bastards, Densil Morgan and Catrin Haf Williams, relocated to the University of Trinity St David. Their arrival precipitated an exodus from Trinity St David. See previous posts.

Densil and Catrin Haf’s colleague from Bangor, Robert Pope, who wasn’t a Bastard, also relocated with them. Robert Pope wrote the 2003 volume ‘A Giant of Welsh Protestantism – R. Tudur Jones 1921–1998′.

 

The dysfunction which characterised the theologians in Bangor may have been related to the major role that some of them past and present played in concealing Dafydd’s gang.

 

Most of R. Tudur Jones’ publications were of an historical nature. Nevertheless, his theology and his opinions on doctrine would surface regularly in his work. Jones was a firm Calvinist and although it is tempting to classify him as evangelical (see also his fellow Welsh Christian scholars Bobi Jones and R. Geraint Gruffydd), Jones distanced himself from the evangelicalism that rose from the ashes of the 1904–1905 Welsh Religious Revival.

R. Tudur Jones opposed liberal theology and feared humanism’s effect on the people of Wales. He didn’t have had anything to worry about, previous posts have named loads of people who were/are leading lights in the British Humanists who also concealed the wrongdoing of Dafydd and the gang. Wales remains safely in the iron grip of Dafydd and the paedophiles, despite those pesky humanists who didn’t learn their verses in Welsh when they were children.

Jones was also involved in Cymdeithas yr Iaith (the Welsh Language Society). Many of whom were associates of or even worked with Dafydd and the gang eg. Meri Huws, formerly of Gwynedd Social Services.

 

In the 1955 General Election, the Liberal candidate for Anglesey, Rhys Lloyd, polled 3,796, rather better than R. Tudor Jones. Rhys Gerran Lloyd, Baron Lloyd of Kilgerran was the son of James G. Lloyd of Kilgerran, Pembrokeshire and he studied at Sloane School and Selwyn College, Cambridge, before taking a teaching post at Bembridge School on the Isle of Wight, where he involved himself in the trusteeship of various organisations relating to John Ruskin. He became a barrister at Gray’s Inn in 1939, specialising in patent law. During WWII, Lloyd served as a Gov’t scientific researcher.

Rhys Lloyd was made a JP for the county of Surrey (by 1983 he lived at Esher) in 1953.

Geoffrey Howe was a barrister from south Wales who practised in Wales along with Ronnie Waterhouse et al while they all concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the gang. Howe continued concealing the gang when he served as the Tory MP for Bebington (on the Wirral), 1964-65, for Reigate, 1970-74 and then for East Surrey, 1974-92 and of course in his numerous Gov’t posts. Howe’s wife Elspeth also concealed the activities of Dafydd et al. The Howes were lifelong close friends of Ronnie Waterhouse and his wife. See previous posts for further information on the Howes.

 

Rhys Lloyd was President of the Welsh Liberal Party, 1971-74 and of the British Liberal Party, 1973–74. In 1973 he was given a peerage. So Lloyd was in the Lords by the time that Jeremy Thorpe stood trial in 1979, although Thorpe’s activities were known to people in the Liberal Party – including Emlyn Hooson in Wales – by the time that Lloyd was President of the Welsh Liberal Party. Lloyd would also have known about Cyril Smith’s abuse of children; it was publicised in a local paper in Rochdale in 1979 and David Steel asked the crooked barrister George Carman QC to ensure that it never found its way into the tabloids and broadsheets because Steel feared that the Cyril Smith story would damage Jeremy Thorpe’s chances in court as well as the Liberal Party. From 1977 to 1983, Rhys Lloyd was joint Treasurer of the Liberal Party, with Monroe Palmer. 

Lord Lloyd died aged 83 in 1991; his wife Phyllis outlived him, dying on 11 September 2006 aged 99. So Phyllis may have been doing the honours and suppressing scandal for many years after Lloyd died.

In March 1991, David Bellotti, Lib Dem MP for Eastbourne, tabled an Early Day Motion asking for a full investigation into Mary Wynch’s case. Everyone who signed the EDM – apart from Dafydd Wigley – were Lib Dems, although mostly very obscure ones. Like Dafydd Wigley, many of them had colluded with Dafydd Alun Jones and the gang for years anyway. Shortly after the EDM was signed, everyone lost interest in Mary’s case – except for Alex Carlile, who asked a question in the House in 1995 only to be told to piss off and then he remained silent for ever after as well -and Mary wasn’t mentioned again. David Bellotti lost his seat in 1992 and never returned to Parliament. Every other person who signed the EDM was given a peerage, even those who had made no real contribution to Parliamentary life by any standards.

One of those who signed the EDM was Geraint Howells. Howells had been a leading Welsh Lib Dem and had been his party’s spokesman on Welsh affairs, 1979-87. Yet the year after signing the EDM he unexpectedly lost his seat to Plaid Cymru. In the 1992 election when they won the seat, Plaid moved from their previous position of fourth place to first. They did this by forming an alliance with the Welsh Green Party and thus picked up a lot of non-Welsh speakers votes. (The alliance broke down in 1995 – the year of the last mention of Mary’s case in the House or indeed anywhere else.) The man who won the seat for Plaid was Cynog Dafis, who served as the Plaid MP until 2000, as well as an AM in the National Assembly of Wales between 1999 and 2003. Interestingly enough, although he was elected in an alliance with the Wales Green Party, Cynog Dafis is on record as saying that he did not consider himself the ‘first Green MP’ – although he remained a robust campaigner on matters relating to the Welsh language. Geraint Howells’ bacon was saved however because he did of course bag a peerage in return for forgetting about that EDM.

For the full details of what happened to whom with regard to the EDM in support of Mary Wynch, see post ‘A Few Of The Relevant Politicians Re Mary Wynch’s Case’.

 

It was Geraint Howells who succeeded Rhys Lloyd as President of the Welsh Liberal Party in 1974.

Rhys Lloyd’s predecessor as President of the Liberal Party was Trevor Jones, who was President of the Liberal Party, 1973-74. Sir Trevor Jones was born in Denbighshire and later served as a member and the Leader of Liverpool City Council. Trevor Jones was Leader of Liverpool City Council, 1981-83, but he served on the Council during the 70s, 80s, the 90s and then again, 2003-10. Liverpool was part of the empire of Dafydd and the gang. Trevor Jones’s widow, Lady Doreen Jones, is a former Lord Mayor of Liverpool. His daughter-in-law Mia Jones was a Liberal Democrat Councillor for Chester City Council. For more on Trevor and his colleagues, see post ‘He Knows Where The Bodies Are Buried’.

In the General Election of 1964, Cledwyn romped home as ever, polling 13,553 votes. John Eilian Jones the Conservative polled 7,016, the Liberal candidate E. Gwyn Jones polled 5,730 and R. Tudur Jones had another go for Plaid, polling 1,817.

In 1966, Cledwyn won with 14,874 votes; John Eilian Jones for the Tories, Cledwyn’s nearest rival, received 9,576 votes.

The General Election of 1970 on Anglesey was described as being ‘a difficult one’ for Cledwyn Hughes, ‘who was heavily criticised by Plaid Cymru supporters’ and it was said that ‘at the count there were unpleasant scenes’. I have not found out what Cledwyn Hughes was accused of by Plaid or what happened exactly at the count. If Plaid were accusing Cledwyn of ripping up the ballot papers which did not have an X by his name, he must have been a busy man, because in 1970 Cledwyn won by a good margin. Cledwyn polled 13,966, John Eilian for the Tories polled 9,220, Plaid’s John Lasarus Williams polled 7,140 and Winston Roddick for the Liberal Party raked in 2,013.

John Lasarus Williams (29 October 1924 – 15 June 2004), known as John L, was born in Llangoed on Anglesey, but lived most of his life in nearby Llanfairpwll. In his youth, he was a keen footballer and he also worked as a teacher. His activism started when he campaigned against the refusal of Brewer Spinks, an employer in Blaenau Ffestiniog, to permit his staff to speak Welsh. This inspired John L to become a founder of Undeb y Gymraeg Fyw, and through this organisation, he was the main organiser of Sioe Gymraeg y Borth (the Welsh show for Menai Bridge).

John L was a long-serving Councillor on Gwynedd County Council and he later worked at Bangor Normal College, lecturing in Welsh. Bangor Normal was a hotbed of paedophiles’ friends and the institution trained a few people who were later convicted of abusing children. One Bangor Normal lecturer who was also a Gwynedd County Councillor and, like John L stood as a Parliamentary candidate for Plaid, was Dafydd Orwig. Dafydd Orwig was directly involved in the shafting of a Hergest Unit patient who discovered that children in the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor were being abused and then challenged people over this. The Hergest patient was subsequently fitted up by the drugs squad, assaulted when at the police station, fitted up for arson, imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre, unlawfully held by Dafydd in Denbigh for a year and soon after that fleeced of his money and property by a group of predators. Then he was denied access to his own child who, with the blessing of Gwynedd Social Services, was brought up by the predators who had at least two sex offenders in their immediate family. A witness to the theft of the child was found dead at about the time of the Waterhouse Inquiry. Read more about the delightful Dafydd Orwig in eg. post ‘Slaves, Perfect Slaves’.

 

The Liberal candidate for Anglesey in 1970 was Winston Roddick, who was the Counsel General for Wales, 1998-03 and served as the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales, 2012-16. Roddick was Chairman of the Welsh Liberal Party in the early 1980s. Roddick grew up in Caernarfon, served as a police officer in Liverpool, subsequently qualified as a barrister in 1968 and practised among the corrupt barristers in Wales who protected Dafydd and the gang. Roddick was Counsel General for Wales during the last part of the Waterhouse Inquiry, at the time that the Waterhouse Report was published and during the aftermath. That cannot have been a coincidence. Roddick knew Ronnie Waterhouse, both through Liberal Party and legal circles. See previous posts for more information about Winston Roddick.

 

In the General Election of Feb 1974, Cledwyn received 14,652 votes, the Conservative Thomas Vivan Lewis received 8,898, dear old singing Dafydd Iwan for Plaid received 7,610 and the Liberal candidate received 3,882.

I cannot find any trace of a Thomas Vivan Lewis, but Thomas Vivian Lewis is a solicitor’s firm in Bangor. There is also a record of a Thomas Robin Arwel Vivian Lewis as a Director of Legal Assistance (Warwickshire) Ltd, but I do not know if these two Thomas Lewis’s are the same person. I presume that it was Thomas Vivian Lewis the solicitor who stood for the Conservatives on Anglesey in Feb 1974.

Whoever Vivan or Vivian was, it does sound as though the poor sods on Anglesey didn’t have much of a choice when it came to voting for an MP; they could vote for a friend of Dafydd (Lab), or a friend of Dafydd (Con), or a friend of Dafydd (Plaid) or a friend of Dafydd (Lib). The electorate probably were greater men than sheep but they were firmly shackled.

Were things any better in the General Election of Oct 1974 for Anglesey? Not really. They could vote for Dafydd’s friend Cledwyn (13,947 of them did), or Dafydd’s friend Vivan Lewis (7,975 were tempted), or Dafydd’s friend Dafydd Iwan (6,410 fell for that) or for a bit of variety, the Liberal candidate Mervyn Ankers (5,182 felt like a change).

 

 

Cledwyn Hughes did not stand as a candidate in the 1979 General Election, he stood down shortly before the big day. I haven’t yet found what seems to be an honest account of why Cledwyn was shoved overboard, although as an enthusiastic devolutionist, Cledwyn was ‘hugely disappointed’ when Wales voted against devolution in March 1979. The devolution vote caused a lot of friction within the Labour Party in Wales. Cledwyn was desperate for a Welsh Parliament, but the Windbag and some others in south Wales were vehemently opposed to this, including Leo Abse and the molester whom he protected, George Thomas. So was Cledwyn slaughtered by the Windbag’s Big Mates? I wouldn’t have put it past the Windbag to have sold the man who gave him his big break politically – introducing him to Jim Callaghan – down the river.

Cledwyn didn’t end up in’t shoebox in’t middle of ‘t road though, that was just for Empowered Service Users. Cledwyn was given a peerage in 1979, so he still had access to dining facilities.

When Captain Cled was slaughtered, Cled’s old mate Elystan Morgan aka Lord Elystan-Morgan stood as the Labour candidate. Lord Elystan-Morgan is another Welsh barrister who served Dafydd and the gang loyally for many years (see previous posts). The Tory Keith Best won Anglesey. Best polled 15,100, Elystan Morgan 12,283, John L – who was back again as the Plaid candidate – polled 7,863 and John Gwynedd Jones for the Liberals polled 3,500.

Keith Best was a barrister from Brighton, where John Allen owned brothels to which he trafficked kids in care from north Wales. Best was a hard right Thatcherite who supported capital punishment. Despite this firm law n order stance, when Best was involved in a road accident, in which his personal assistant was killed, shortly after Best’s election to the Commons – Best was driving at the time – Best was not executed or even imprisoned. Best was cleared of all responsibility…

Best soon became a Minister at the Welsh Office where he played a full part in concealing the crimes of Dafydd and the gang, which Best was happy to continue doing when I went to see him in 1985 re the north Wales mental health services. Best was small and grey with a round face and he wore a blue blazer and I must have spent no more than 3 mins in his office. Best spent more time introducing me to his research assistant – who was also wearing a blue blazer – than he did listening to my account of the problems that I was having with the mental health services. I wish that I could remember the name of Best’s assistant, because that Tory boy will have been in it up to his eye-balls as well.

I’m fairly sure that Best knew that I would be going to see him, which might explain why he didn’t need to listen to the details of my complaint and that he seemed to know exactly what he would be doing with my complaint before I had opened my mouth. When I had the confrontation with Tony Francis which led to me paying a visit to Best’s surgery, Francis had yelled at me ‘you can complain to whoever you want, you can even write to the Secretary of State’. The Secretary of State at the time – the summer of 1985 – was Nicholas Edwardes (see previous posts eg. ‘The Cradle Of Filth’ and ‘ Corruption Bay Special’) and Francis knew damn well that the whole bloody Welsh Office were fully on board with the gang. I imagine that Francis got to the Welsh Office before I did, they probably drew up the action plan with him, particularly because in the summer of 1985 Mary Wynch won her appeal to the Master of the Rolls which received widespread coverage in the London-based press.

 

At the 1983 General Election, Keith Best held Ynys Mon, as the constituency was now called. Best polled 15,017, but faced a strong challenge from the Plaid candidate, Ieuan Wyn Jones, the corrupt solicitor who was from Denbigh, as was his Angel wife Eirian Llwyd (see previous posts). Ieuan was mates with Dafydd – indeed Ieuan’s Nonconformist Minister dad had been mates with Gwynne and Dafydd – and Ieuan had stood as the Plaid candidate for Denbigh in Oct 1974 and 1979. Ieuan polled 13,333, the Labour candidate Tudor Williams polled 6,791 and the SDP candidate David Thomas netted 4,947. The Gang Of Four all knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and their knowledge of it informed the their target seats (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’). Dr Death personally knew some of the Top Docs in north Wales who facilitated Dafydd’s gang.

Poor old Anglesey.

Best didn’t stand in the 1987 General Election, because he was embroiled in scandal after being charged with fraud; in Sept 1987 Best was convicted of fraud with regard to his applications for BT shares and was imprisoned. The Tory candidate for Ynys Mon in 1987 was barrister Roger Evans. Dafydd’s ancestral pal Ieuan Wyn Jones polled 18,580, Roger Evans polled 14,282, Labour’s Colin Parry polled 7,252 and the SDP’s Ieuan Wilson Evans bagged 2,863.

During the 1987 General Election campaign, Dafydd et al were carrying out a carefully co-ordinated plan to fit me up for a serious offence which was supposed to result in my incarceration in Risley Remand Centre days after the General Election. Risley Remand Centre were on board with the plan, as was the Mental Health Act Commission, as well as Gwynedd and Gwynedd Health Authorities. It backfired when Sgt Morgan at Bangor Police Station and Jeff Crowther, a nursing officer at Ysbyty Gwynedd, didn’t tell as many lies as were required. However Dafydd et al didn’t realise that Sgt Morgan had Rebelled and I now have copies of letters sent to the Mental Health Act Commission from Clwyd Health Authority explaining that I was now in Risley Remand Centre after attacking a junior doctor with a knife. Even better, David Ewart of the Mental Health Act Commission’s Liverpool Office wrote back to Clwyd Health Authority thanking them for letting him know that I was in Risley Remand Centre, so he would of course be sending a brief response to my complaint about Dafydd et al to my address at Chepstow Road in Leicester, knowing that I would not receive it. It gets better. Unbeknown to David Ewart, I WAS at Chepstow Road, I lived there with Brown and my friends between May 1987 and April 1988 and no, Ewart did not send any replies to me there re my complaint about Dafydd et al.

Lie after lie after lie, accompanied by perjury and conspiracy. Douglas Hurd was Home Secretary at the time; Norman Fowler was Health Secretary when Dafydd et al planned the dirty deed but John Moore was Health Secretary by the time that they actually had me arrested and started writing to each other telling themselves that I was in Risley. See previous posts eg. ‘Security, Security’ and ‘Additional Security Measures’ for further details.

I now know that all the Ynys Mon candidates who stood in the 1987 General Election knew what was happening to me. Ieuan Wyn Jones was a friend of Dafydd as well as of Alwyn Jones, my solicitor in Bangor – who was married to a lawyer who worked for Gwynedd County Council; Roger Evans was mates with the crooked barristers who were part of it; the Windbag knew Tony Francis who had called the police and reported that I had ‘tried to stab a junior doctor’ and demanded my arrest; the SDP candidate knew the other Top Docs involved.

The result of this cross-Party, interdisciplinary Plot? It was this:

Anyone for watching some vintage clips of that ridiculous old Windbag telling everyone how much he wants to rid the UK of the evil of Thatcher? Not if it involved helping a group of young lefties expose the wrongdoing in north Wales, including the abuse of kids in care by Thatch’s friend and Minister Peter Morrison though eh Neil?? Because Glenys and her mum and dad and their mates had been concealing it for decades.

If I was the PM of Denmark I’d dissociate myself from those in-laws and quickly.

Roger Evans subsequently served as the Tory MP for Monmouth, 1992-97, throughout the years of the flat denials from the North Wales Police that there was a VIP paedophile ring operating in north Wales/Cheshire which was being concealed at the highest levels of Gov’t, as well as throughout the duration of the Jillings Investigation and the launch of the Waterhouse Inquiry. Days after Roger was elected, the Brighton firebomb killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’).

  • Remember Me - AbeBooks

 

Roger served as a junior Social Services Minister, 1994-97, under Secretary of State Peter Lilley. While the cover-up re the escalating wrongdoing in north Wales continued, while lies were told about Dafydd ‘retiring’ and the North Wales Hospital ‘closing down’ and while the Head of Bryn Estyn Matt Arnold, Dafydd’s mate the corrupt Home Office mandarin Bing Spear and Peter Morrison were found dead. And of course as some people were imprisoned for the abuse of children in north Wales, but only social workers and teachers, not anyone important.

 

Ieuan won the day again at Ynys Mon at the General Election of 1992, as the body count regarding those who had Spilt The Pints of the gang mounted up. Ieuan polled 15,984. His nearest rival was the Tory candidate Gwynn Rowlands (14,878). The Labour candidate polled 10,126 and the Lib Dem 1,891.

 

Ieuan continued to reign supreme. In May 1997, after the Waterhouse Inquiry had begun and when things could only get better – but obviously not while Miranda was in Number 10 – Ieuan netted 15,756 votes. Labour’s Owen Edwards polled 13, 275 and the Conservative Gwilym Owen polled 8,569. The Lib Dem candidate, Deric Burnham, received 1,537 votes.

I suspect that Deric is a relation of the wonderful Eleanor Burnham, known for her red lipstick and a splendid public performance at a meeting of the Court of Bangor University some years ago, in which she hurled insults at the VC and Lord Dafydd Elis-Thomas, the then Chancellor and accused them of being Men. Not only that, but they were so guilty of being Men that Eleanor did not believe that they had allowed any Wimmin to sit on the University Council. Dafydd El confirmed that there were Wimmin on the Council and the VC tried to lighten the rather fraught atmosphere by telling everyone that he had attended the first Wimmin’s Liberation Conference in Oxford. That was not a good idea, Eleanor just blew, she screamed ‘and look what happened to you’ and exited the room at speed. I had no idea who the angry lady in red lipstick was but I later discovered that she was Eleanor Burnham, a Lib Dem AM.

  • What are Eleanor’s credentials for advancing the cause of Wimmin? Er, Eleanor worked as a ‘social services manager’ in north Wales and sat on Mental Health Tribunals for the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. So she didn’t notice all the illegally imprisoned victims of the paedophile gang sitting in Denbigh or the pregnant women who’s babies disappeared without explanation then.

After losing her seat in the Welsh Assembly, Eleanor became a leading light in the North Wales Community Health Council, where she campaigned vigorously for things that she needed – such as joint replacements – and ignored the slaughter of mental health patients. See previous posts.

[That’s enough Eleanor – Ed.]

 

Ieuan didn’t stand in the 2001 General Election on Ynys Mon. This was not because the crooked bastard had been outed as an accomplice of a gang of traffickers, it was because in 1999 Ieuan became the AM for Ynys Mon. In 2001, 22 years after Cledwyn was decapitated, Albert Owen won Ynys Mon back for Labour. Albert polled 11,906 Eilian Williams polled 11,106 for Plaid and the Tory Albie Fox polled 7,653 votes.

Albert Owen has a cheeky little grin and appears in the local papers supporting Community Things, but Albert knows as much about the crime and corruption on Anglesey as anyone. Albert grew up in Holyhead and went to Holyhead School. In 2001, I was living on Anglesey – and as ever was being threatened and harassed by the gang – and undertook a teacher training placement in Albert’s old school. That school had very serious problems which were clear to the student teachers, known to the tutors at Bangor University and hundreds of kids had been withdrawn from Holyhead School by their parents and were sent to schools in Bangor. The problems at Holyhead School were entirely the result of the fuckwit of the Headmistress Margaret Chantrelle and her sidekick, Deputy Head Gerald Hewitson. The classroom teachers – most of whom were doing a good job – were in despair and no-one at County Council or Assembly level would listen to the teachers or the parents as Chantrelle destroyed the place and Hewitson just insulted people. See previous posts. Albert didn’t mention a word, but instead was happy to advertise himself as a Successful Old Boy. Bugger the kids who were suffering under Chantrelle then Albert; I used to hear the classroom teachers fuming and openly saying that the kids were being ‘cheated out of an education’ by Chantrelle.

There was also a massive heroin problem in Llangefni by 2001. Thanks to the local ‘drugs team’ – which were the domain of Dafydd. Dafydd lives about four miles outside of Llangefni.

 

Albert held Anglesey in 2005. He polled 12,278, and the Plaid candidate Eurig Wyn (see previous posts) polled 11,036. Albert has held Anglesey at every General Election since, although only by just over 200 votes in 2015. Having fallen from grace and stepped down as the AM for Ynys Mon in 2013, Ieuan attempted a come-back in 2017 and stood again as the Westminster candidate. Albert beat him, but by less than 200 votes.

Anglesey has been in crisis now for years and it does not get any better. There have never really been many functioning ‘services’ on Anglesey, but there did used to be a few old folks homes run by Anglesey County Council, at least of one which was very good. They were flogged off- including the very good one -to the private sector a few years ago. The person who led Anglesey into such a crisis that they couldn’t even run an old folk’s home was the Director of Community Services, Gwenan Carrington. Gwenan had previously been Director of Gwynedd Social Services and had been obliged to move on to pastures new after Gwynedd Social Services received the worst imaginable inspection report some years ago. The inspectors stated that Gwenan did not understand the policies which she was supposed to be implementing and that under her ‘leadership’, the Services would be incapable of improvement. Not that Gwenan left immediately, she hung on until, as the inspection report predicted, the ‘Services’ were no more. Gwenan was faced with a lot of hostile media coverage and a TV expose and she announced her retirement. But Dafydd-like, that retirement involved moving down the road to an equally senior post arranged for her by her mates.

Anglesey Community Services have functioned as a dustbin before. Rob Evans, who was Gwynedd Social Services senior manager responsible for children’s homes while the paedophile gang made merry in them, was subsequently given responsibility for mental health services. It was Rob Evans who in the mid-1990s, was called upon to resolve the problem of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team constantly threatening me and having me arrested for ludicrous reasons. Rob did meet with me and he gave me a lecture on Changing Social Work Practice. I’m not sure why, but at least it meant that Rob did not have to discuss the outrageous misconduct and criminality of the Arfon CMHT. I now have the document which Rob compiled after I met him. Rob wrote that before meeting me, he asked Keith Fearns, the psychopath who ‘led’ the Arfon CMHT, what Fearns wanted ‘done’ with me. Fearns replied ‘lock her up’. Rob told Fearns that was not possible. Fearns repeated ‘lock her up’. Rob noted that he was ‘leaving this job tomorrow’ and could see no resolution to the problems between the Arfon CMHT and me.

I only found out much later where Rob had gone. He had been appointed as the Director of Community Services on Anglesey! Rob gave evidence at the Waterhouse Inquiry. He told Waterhouse that the community mental health services in Gwynedd were ‘probably the best in Europe’. Rob also told Waterhouse that yes, he had been responsible for children’s services when the kids had been battered and abused, but he wouldn’t be working for much longer because ‘changes in the service’ meant that Rob would not be able to find suitable employment in north Wales.

Rob Evans was still employed at a senior level in the social services in north west Wales in 2012. I bumped into him in Tesco and asked him if he felt that he should have done more to help me in the face of Fearns’s constant aggression. Rob told me that if I didn’t stop ‘arrassin him, he’d call the police. As I left Tesco, Keith fucking Fearns appeared from behind and ‘arrassed me.

I had the meeting with Rob Evans in the mid-1990s because Ella Fisk, the Angel who ran the Day Centre at the Hergest Unit, was trying to resolve the constant problems with the Arfon CMHT. I always liked Ella, as did many of the other patients, but she was undoubtedly intimidated by those we know and love and did not feel able to challenge them. Her husband was a senior technician at Ysbyty Gwynedd and they knew how serious the wrongdoing was. Ella was also very obviously not allowed to use her abilities to their full potential. She was just told what to do by the gang and was used to silence serious complaint. Ella’s Day Dentre was closed down by Alun Davies – the corrupt manager of the Hergest Unit – at the behest of the Arfon CMHT during the Waterhouse Inquiry and a great many patients became destitute and died. Which was one way of dealing with witnesses. Ella was given a new job, in the Anglesey Community Mental Health Team. Ella did not drive and her new role involved visiting patients at home now that the Day Centre had closed. So Ella spent most of her time travelling between client’s houses on the rather inadequate bus service across Anglesey. Ella saw about three clients a day. Everyone, including Ella, knew that it was grossly inefficient. Who was ultimately responsible for Community Services on Anglesey at the time? Rob Evans.

When Rob gave me his lecture on Changing Social Work Practice, he told me that when he took children to children’s homes he used to take their shoes away to stop them running away. When some of the people involved in the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal were finally prosecuted for sexual assaults on children, the former kids in care told the court that they had run away after the first sexual assaults but then the social workers had taken their shoes away so that they couldn’t escape.

Rob Evans worked in a number of different regions before North Wales. He did his social work training in Leicester in the 1970s (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’). Where a big paedophile ring operated in the children’s homes which was linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales.

North Wales Police who found No Evidence Of A Paedophile Ring: Rob Evans was a monster, a real monster. Didn’t you notice what happened wherever that man went? Clients were threatened, sexually assaulted, battered or found dead. He ran every fucking service where this consistently happened, do you think that there might have been a clue there?

There was a problem with the police at Llangefni Police Station on Anglesey in that many of them were mates with Dafydd, who was running his crime empire from his house down the road. In the 1970s, Elfed Roberts was the Sgt at Llangefni. Years later Elfed was obliged to leave the North Wales Police after the Chief Constable Richard Brunstrom – who desperately tried to clean up a totally rotten force – had a conversation with Elfed about the perks and privileges that Elfed was enjoying and his affluent lifestyle which was beyond the means of a police officer. The police were using the slogan  ‘If You See Bling, Give Us A Ring’, at the time, so they obviously followed their own advice and made enquiries about Elfed’s bling. Elfed did have a lot of bling, his penismobile for a start, but he also owned houses everywhere, bungaloids, which he let out. People openly joked about Elfed’s wealth and asked ‘how the hell can he afford that on a police officer’s salary?’

Elfed used to enjoy staying at an hotel in the Loire in France, Chateau de Cop Choux.

After Elfed left the North Wales Police under the major cloud, he was appointed Chair of the North West Wales NHS Trust. Obviously the ideal job for an bent ex-copper. Elfed also fed the ‘Daily Mail’ stories about Richard Brunstrom and told the Mail how hated Brunstrom was, although some of us were very grateful to Mr Brustrom for kicking Elfed out of the police force, but the ‘Daily Mail’ never printed that. That’s why the Mail kept reporting on Mr Brunstrom’s alleged insanity and how he was known as ‘the Mad Mullah of the Traffic Taliban’. Which wasn’t what Richard Brunstrom was known as at all, Elfed and his racist old mates probably just made that one up down at Bangor Golf Club over the gin.

Elfed spent a number of years as Chair of the NW Wales NHS Trust – which came with an automatic place on the Council of Bangor University – during which time he absolutely disgraced himself, including by having me arrested for ridiculous offences, such as having pink hair and calling his car a penismobile.

Elfed became such an embarrassment that Edwina Hart the then Health Minister was finally forced to restructure the NHS in north Wales and Elfed was not given a place on the new Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. I presumed that Edwina had realised how totally unsuitable Elfed was for any public appointment, but no, my trust was once again misplaced. Edwina quietly gave Elfed a place on the Board of the Welsh Ambulance Trust. Which of course is in bits, with people dying while they wait four hours for an ambulance.

Despite bagging yet another public appointment that he should not have had, Elfed decided to declare war on the newly created Betsi Board, mainly because he hated the new Chairman, the former VC of Bangor University and the new CEO, Mary Burrows. Elfed’s battle was over the source of sandwiches which were sold in the WRVS cafe in Ysbyty Gwynedd. The WRVS had changed their order and instead of buying the sandwiches from the Menai Deli in Menai Bridge, the WRVS dared buy them from Ginsters in Leicester. Elfed began WW III: ENGLISH sandwiches on sale in a WELSH hospital, the Menai Deli, a local Welsh firm losing business. Elfed organised a protest, a march, intimidation of WRVS HQ, he rang all the newspapers, he appeared on TV, there was hate mail sent to the Betsi Board…

Elfed did not mention a crucial factor re the Menai Deli. It was owned by his friends – it might even have been his son-in-law- but that Deli was definitely owned by a mate of Elfed’s from Bangor Golf Club. As with everything when Elfed had Chaired the NHS Trust, the contract for the cafe sandwiches had been given to one of Elfed’s mates. Elfed’s wife worked in the WRVS cafe and TOLD the other volunteers to boycott the Leicester sarnies. So I went in and purchased a Leicester sandwich and was subjected to an attempt to threaten me. Until another old bag behind the counter realised who I was and there was much trauma.

While Leading The Protest In Defence Of A Small Welsh Business, as Elfed manned the barricades, he tried to rent out one of his bungaloids to another protester. There’s commitment for you.

The Betsi Board and WRVS HQ stood their ground and the Menai Deli were not asked to supply the Ysbyty Gwynedd WRVS cafe again. Then someone discovered that the WRVS contract was the only contract that the Menai Deli had. Small local business Elfed? Or another scam brought to the folk of Gwynedd by Elfed Roberts? I’m the Chair of the Trust, would one of my friends or relatives like to set up a Deli which will be guaranteed a contract from the WRVS cafe at Ysbyty Gwynedd?

After Butty Wars – as the Daily Post termed the saga starring the Menai Deli – there was an attempt at a repeat performance, this time involving a Lovely Little Welsh Company, Blas ar Fwyd,  who supplied the snacks for the patients’ trolley on the wards at Ysbyty Gwynedd. The Lovely Little Welsh Company were heart-broken when they were told that they too would have to competitively tender for the contract. There was press coverage which explained that the Little Company was Welsh, located in the Heart Of Welsh Wales In Llanrwst, that the products were Healthy, Nutritious and Organic – actually they’ve got even more sugar than Mr Kripling cakes – and the owner of the company was appalled that a Welsh Hospital couldn’t support a Lovely Little Welsh Company. Who owned the Lovely Little Welsh Company? One Deiniol ap Dafydd. Dafydd’s son. Dafydd set Deiniol up in business years ago, with his Bistro in Llanwrst and the Deli. One of my mates has longed believed that Blas ar Fwyd is one of Dafydd’s money-laundering companies and someone else thinks that it might have a sideline in flogging recreational chemicals. Either way, Dafydd is at the root of it. There was a Facebook campaign to turn Deiniol into a TV star a few years ago as well, but that flopped.

One constituency that flip flopped between various paedophiles’ friends as Dafydd’s mates of different political hues scrapped between themselves was Conway. Conway was formed in 1950 from the old constituencies of Caernarvon Boroughs and Caernarvonshire and lasted until 2010, when it became Aberconwy. The constituency of Conway included Bangor – and thus of course UCNW – Llandudno and Llanfairfechan. Llanfairfechan was the location of Bryn-y-Neuadd, the old hospital for the ‘mentally handicapped’ and was part of Dafydd’s domain. Llanfairfechan was a hotspot for Dafydd’s gang because the staff of Bryn-y-Neuadd all lived there. So Conway constituency included a lot of professionals who were abusing clients or keeping quiet about that abuse. It also included Bethesda, an area which housed a lot of the victims of the gang. That always really pissed Bethesda off; Bethesda people would remark with incredulity that they were in with Llandudno which is why we kept getting Thatch’s poodle Wyn Roberts as our MP.

For much of its existence Conway was a marginal seat. In 1950 Sir Elwyn Edwards won Conway for Labour. Jones polled 15,176 and his nearest rival, the Tory David Price-White, polled 14,373. Emlyn Hooson for the Liberals received 9,937.

Sir William Elwyn Edwards Jones aka Sir Elwyn Jones (4 January 1904 –1989) was a solicitor who served as town clerk of Bangor, 1939-69. 

Sir Elwyn was the son of the Rev Robert William Jones, a Minister with the Calvinistic Methodists at Bootle and Elizabeth Jane, his wife. Sir Elwyn was educated at Bottle Secondary School, Ffestiniog Grammar School and then UCNW and after that London University.

Elwyn Jones qualified as a solicitor in 1927, was appointed clerk to the Bangor magistrates in 1934. Jones was a member of the Caernarfonshire County Council1945-69. Lucille worked as a children’s social worker for Caernarfonshire County Council. Many of the older senior managers and social workers who ended up in Gwynedd County Council in the 1970s,80s and 90s had served in various capacities with Caernarfonshire County Council. Sir Elwyn served as a member of the National Parks Commission1966-68 and of the Countryside Commission for Wales, 1968-71. Sir Elwyn was a member of the Court and Council of UCNW from 1943, serving as Treasurer from 1970 and then Vice-President, 1977-82.

Lord Lloyd Kenyon was President of UCNW when Sir Elwyn was involved with that institution. Lord Kenyon’s son Thomas was known to be sexually abusing boys in the care of the Social Services and on one occasion in 1978 Thomas admitted it. At the same time, Thomas reported the boy for theft. The boy was sent to a detention centre. Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon faced no charges. Part of Thomas’s complaint was that the boy had stolen Polaroid porn photos of them both together. Thomas died of AIDS in the early 1990s. Lord Kenyon, among many other things, was a member of the North Wales Police Authority, Chairman of Clwyd Health Authority, the most senior Freemason in north Wales and a Director of Lloyd’s Bank. See previous posts.

 

Part of Mary Wynch’s case was her assertion that there was a ring of corrupt solicitors in the Caernarfon and Bangor area who were all working together to shaft everyone else.

 

 

Elwyn Jones married, in 1936 to Dyddgu, the daughter of Rev Dr E. Tegla Davies. Edward Tegla Davies was a Wesleyan Minister who was born in Denbighshire and later served as a Minister at a variety of locations across north Wales, including at Denbigh. Elwyn Jones and his family lived at GlyngarthMenai Bridge (the posh bit of Menai Bridge). He died in July 1989, so he was around to help Dafydd out for a long while.

Sir Elwyn Jones had one son and two daughters. Sir Elwyn’s son, also Elwyn, took over his father’s solicitor’s practice in Bangor. I don’t know whether Sir Elwyn was one of the ring of corrupt solicitors named by Mary Wynch, but I do know that his son Elwyn was corrupt. Elwyn Jones was the solicitor who acted for the predators who fleeced the Hergest patient mentioned above who was also victimised by Dafydd Orwig – Dafydd Orwig sat on the old Caernarfonshire County Council, as well as the post-1974 Gwynedd County Council. I saw the letters that Elwyn Jones wrote to the patient who was taken to the cleaners and I know that Elwyn Jones knew that he was acting for a bunch of lying, thieving abusers. I always wondered why Elwyn Jones did act for them, because they spent all the dosh that they had liberated from the Hergest patient, they didn’t have any money to pay Elwyn and I know that on some occasions Elwyn Jones didn’t actually charge them for his services. I suspect that Elwyn was simply providing a service to Dafydd’s gang; after all the Hergest patient under attack had witnessed what was happening to the boys in Ty Newydd, he had possibly witnessed a murder in Risley and he had much info about the wrongdoing of Dafydd as well as white collar crime committed by Top Docs in Surrey before he ever moved to north Wales.

I used to see Elwyn Jones in Bangor Magistrates Court in the late 1980s and 1990s, looking on as victims of Dafydd’s gang were fitted up. Elwyn Jones would be representing some of them and he did not give a stuff. He would turn up to Court seconds before their cases began, he would chat to the other solicitors about how he would be going onto the golf course as soon as Court finished and he’d be out of the door as soon as his clients were sentenced. Elwyn was the most boring old fart imaginable, although he might have led a more exciting life than I thought because in those days I didn’t realise that Bangor Golf Club was a meeting place for the traffickers. Elwyn could well have been raking in the ill-gotten gains, but if he was I don’t know why he was spending his days in Bangor wearing a nylon suit. If I was a gangster I’d want more than that.

As well as inheriting his dad’s solicitor’s firm, Elwyn Jones also inherited his dad’s job as Treasurer of UCNW, Elwyn held that post for years. UCNW always had very serious financial problems, so someone should probably have relieved Elwyn of that role, the dosh might have been going towards a supply of nylon suits and drinks at Bangor Golf Club. Trebles All Around, paid for by UCNW.

The Tory MP for Clwyd West, the solicitor David Jones, used to work in Elwyn Jones’s practice and David Jones has a great deal of knowledge regarding the wrongdoing in north Wales (see post ‘The Right Honourable David Jones MP’).

The Conway Tory candidate who came a close second to Sir Elwyn in the 1950 General Election, David Archibald Price-White, was also a solicitor. Price-White was the Tory MP for Caernarvon Boroughs, 1945-50, ousting the Liberal MP Seaborne Davies who had only recently succeeded David Lloyd George in the seat. His father, Price Foulkes White (1873–1952) was a Welsh international footballer. David Price-White was educated at Friars School – a training ground for the paedophiles’ friends of Bangor -and then at UCNW, before qualifying as a solicitor in 1932. During WW II Price-White served with the British Army.

In 1934, Price-White married Gwyneth Harris, daughter of James Lewis Harris of Caernarvon.

 

Emlyn Hooson, the Liberal candidate for Conway in 1950 was yet another corrupt barrister who worked in Wales/Chester. Hooson was a big mate of Ronnie Waterhouse and served as the Liberal MP for Montgomeryshire, 1962-79. Hooson was originally from Denbighshire and went to Denbigh Grammar School. When Hooson died in 2012, Ieuan Wyn Jones waxed lyrical about their long friendship and how Hooson never lost touch with people in Denbighshire.

 

In the 1951 General Election, the Tory candidate Peter Thomas took Conway from Sir Elwyn. Thomas polled 17,115, Sir Elwyn 16,532 and Emlyn Hooson 5,791.

Peter Thomas served as Secretary of State for Wales, 1970-74, under Ted Heath. Thomas was the son of a Llanwrst solicitor. Peter Thomas went to school in north Wales, then read law at Jesus College, Oxford, a popular destination for the grander paedophiles’ friends; the crooked judge Huw Daniel read law at Jesus College, Oxford. Thomas worked for the security services during WWII and became a barrister. Like Ronnie Waterhouse, Thomas was a member of Middle Temple. Thomas sat as a Crown Court Recorder, 1974-88.

Peter Thomas was bilingual and a member of the Gorsedd.

Thomas accessed a useful network re oiling the wheels of corruption when he married Tessa Dean, the daughter of actor and film and theatrical producer Basil Dean and and his wife, Lady Mercy Greville. Like Ronnie Waterhouse, Peter Thomas had many contacts in showbiz and in the theatre. Thomas died in 2008, yet another accessory who hung around on earth throughout many an investigation and Inquiry, who ensured that there was no danger of the truth emerging.

Peter Thomas became Baron Thomas of Gwydir, after the 1987 General Election. He probably thought that I’d be in prison by then, but whoops that plan went pear-shaped. Like Peter Thomas, Dr Peter Higson grew up in Llanwrst. Higson was a clinical psychologist at the North Wales Hospital and then became the manager of that institution at some point in the mid-1980s. Higson was one of those who knew about the plan to frame and imprison me shortly after the 1987 General Election. Higson has recently stepped down as Chair of the Betsi Board. Higson’s sister Ruth Hussey spent a number of years as Chief Medical Officer for Wales. See post ‘Topsy and Tim’.

For further details of Peter Thomas, see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.

 

Peter Thomas held Conway in the General Election of 1955, polling 18,705 votes to Sir Elwyn’s 13,881. The Liberal candidate was Herbert Mostyn Lewis (3,217) and the Wales-wide paedophiles’ – and Lord Max Beloff’s – friend Ioan Bowen Rees brought up the rear for Plaid with 3,019. After Ioan graduated from Queen’s College, Oxford and began his career as a solicitor working for County Councils in Wales which allowed paedophile rings to operate within their children’s homes, Ioan stood unsuccessfully as the Plaid candidate in Conway in 1955 and 1959 and then in Merthyr Tydfil in 1964. Just to ensure that he was fully networked, Ioan also worked as a solicitor for Lancashire County Council.

In 1959, Peter Thomas polled 17,795 votes against Labour’s Silvan Jones’s 13,260. Ioan stood for Plaid again. Peter Thomas prevailed again in 1964, receiving 18,753 votes against Gwilym Roberts for Labour who polled 15,234. The Plaid candidate was Gwilym Hughes.

Gwilym Edffrwd Roberts was educated at Brynrefail Grammar School and the University of Wales. He lectured in scientific management techniques and served as a Councillor on Luton Borough Council from 1965, before serving as the Labour MP for South Bedfordshire, 1966-70. Gwilym Roberts then served as the Labour MP for Cannock, Feb 1984-1983. There was a trafficking gang operating in the Cannock/Staffordshire area with links to Dafydd’s gang.

Gwilym remained very much in business following his Westminster defeat in 1983. He became Leader of Cannock Chase District Council, although he eventually lost his seat in 2002. Gwilym then served as a Labour councillor on Staffordshire County Council, retiring from membership of the County Council in 2010. Like all good paedophiles’ friends, not only did Gwilym Roberts not mention the abuse of children in Staffordshire – which became public in the 1980s with the Staffordshire Pindown Scandal – or the local genocidal NHS, but Gwilym was an enthusiastic supporter of that corrupt, dangerous NHS and was always happy to be involved in ensuring that the neglect and abuse continued. See post ‘The Human Stain’ for more background on Gwilym who died earlier this year.

 

In the General Election of 1966, Ednyfed Hudson Davies won Conway for the Labour Party, polling 18,203 votes against the 17,622 votes of Peter Thomas, the Tory.

Ednyfed Hudson Davies was born in Llanelli, the son of a Minister of religion. The family moved to Bangor when Ednyfed was a child. Hudson Davies went to Dynevor Grammar School in Swansea, Swansea University and then Balliol College, Oxford. He worked as a lecturer and broadcaster. He was the Labour MP for Conway, 1966-70 and was elected as the Labour MP for Caerphilly in 1979. Hudson Davies ran away and joined Dr Death’s crew in 1981.

Hudson Davies was another MP with links to showbiz and other exotic folk as a result of his marriage to Amanda Barker-Mill in 1972. Hudson-Davies remained active in public life after he left politics as Chairman of a museum trust in the New Forest. His first marriage ended in divorce in 1994 and in 2016 he married Sue Owen. Hudson Davies died on 11 January 2018, aged 88, serving the paedophiles’ friends until the end. See previous posts for further information.

 

It was in the General Election of 1970 that the paedophiles’ bestest friend the dreadful Wyn – later Lord – Roberts began his reign over Conway. Wyn Roberts won the seat with 16,927 votes, over Ednyfed Hudson Davies, the Labour candidate, who polled 16,024. Lord Dafydd Elis-Thomas – later the Plaid MP for Meirionydd Nant Conwy, 1974-92 and at present the Plaid AM for Dwyfor Meirionydd – stood for Plaid.

Wyn Roberts held Conway until he retired in 1997 and was given the obligatory peerage to loyal paedophiles’ friends at Westminster. Wyn Roberts was truly toxic. He became a Welsh Office Minister under Thatcher and remained so for many years. Thatch always treated Roberts as a minion, but it is interesting to note when he did get his titbits. Wyn Roberts was promoted to Minister of State at the Welsh Office after the 1987 General Election and he picked up his knighthood in 1990, the year that members of Dafydd’s gang repeatedly perjured themselves in High Court cases with regard to me.

Roberts had a background in the security services and in broadcasting and for years he deflected every complaint about Dafydd’s gang. Roberts really maxed out on being a Welsh speaker and was Thatch’s token Welshman who was wheeled out when someone Welsh was needed to tick a box which would result in consequences seriously detrimental to the Welsh and everyone else. Wyn Roberts wasn’t the Welsh rural pauper who’s English was a bit shaky as he liked to pretend, he was born into, by north Wales standards, an influential family on Anglesey who were comfortably off. Wyn Roberts’s family were a fairly typical example of the dominant elite of north Wales at the that time, Liberal Nonconformists, Wyn Roberts’s father being a Minister of religion.

In the early 1990s, to the surprise of everyone, Wyn Roberts was incredibly helpful to a group of English hippies and other alternative people who were successful in stopping the building of a by-pass around Bethesda, although the by-pass was fully supported by local people and influential Councillors on Gwynedd County Council. The hippies believed that they had won everyone over with their arguments re preserving the oak woodland at Bethesda. Er, no. One of those leading the Stop The Bethesda By-pass campaign was Ed Ingram, a part-time stats tutor in the Psychology Dept of Bangor University, who was sexually abusing school girls and married to a porn queen who had starred in a grumble vid called ‘The Farm’, which included scenes of bestiality. Filthy Ed, as he was known, could have named a great many people involved with Dafydd’s gang. Furthermore, although Filthy Ed had long been a degenerate, but he was of Posh Origins, from an upmarket family in Hampshire and when Wyn Roberts was helping Filthy Ed’s campaign, Filthy Ed’s upper crust mum was still alive and was on occasions spotted in Bethesda.

One other point. I was one of those who attended the early meetings of the Stop The Bethesda By-pass Campaign. At the same time I was writing to Wyn Roberts and others about Dafydd’s gang. Oh and the North Wales Police investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring operating in north Wales/Cheshire was drawing to an end, which by 1992, had ‘found no evidence of a paedophile ring’ in north Wales/Cheshire. What better than dear old Wyn showing a bunch of hippies WHO KNEW ME – but not very well – that of course there was no serious wrongdoing in high places and that he was an OK man?

The cauldron was stirred by two of the wimmin who were on the fringes of the Alternative Crowd in Bethesda who worked for Dafydd’s gang: Alison Greenaway, who ran the MIND Centre in Bangor and who later became a psychiatric social worker and Rosie Waite, another social worker. Alison and Rosie knew exactly what was happening to kids in care and psych patients. Rosie was a rather better actor then Alison, Rosie herself discussed the abuse of patients with me and stated that her friendship with Alison was being seriously affected because of Alison’s role in the abuse and neglect of psych patients. I had many chats with Rosie about those we know and love and named names, providing details of exactly what I had witnessed. In turn Rosie told me about a teenaged client of hers who had developed a very inappropriate relationship with Dafydd and who was staying nights and weekends at Dafydd’s house and was being told by Dafydd that he loved her. Rosie was working for Conwy Social Services at the time – in 1999 – and told me that she was leaving social work because she could not bear to be part of what was going on any longer.

In 2002, when the paedophiles’ friends were in full cry once more and trying to imprison me,  Rosie Waite cut off all contact with me, except for a rude letter in which she demanded that I repay her £100 which had been lent to and spent by someone else. Rosie then bagged herself a job as a social work trainer. In Conwy. I imagine that every bit of info that I gave Rosie re the abuse of clients was fed straight back to someone senior at Conwy Social Services. Conwy Social Services ran the Inspection Unit which ignored the serious abuse, physical harm and even the disappearance of clients of Prestwood People Trafficking Ltd (see previous posts eg. ‘A Convenient Arrangement With The Private Sector’). When I reported my concerns about Prestwood Homes to the Inspection Unit, I was asked what I did for a living and then threatened. I went to see that Unit not long before I was arrested for ‘threats to kill’ and forced out of my teaching job at Hillgrove School on the basis of gossip and rumour from Keith Fearns and the Arfon Community Mental Health Team (see previous posts).

Rosie is Lesbian Feminist Who Is An Empowered Older Woman!

Before Rosie Waite qualified as a social worker at Coleg Menai – where she commented upon the dreadful standards and the qualifying of some very unsuitable students as social workers – she worked in Bangor University’s library, which for some reason, although I never found out why, was a hot spot for supporters of Dafydd’s gang. Nothing will have escaped Rosie’s eyes and ears when she worked there, all info will have been added to her armoury.

Rosie now works as a humanist funeral celebrant, but what rich pickings there are for her in that line of work I cannot imagine.

 

In Feb 1974 Wyn Roberts held Conway with 16,763 votes, against the 12,214 votes of paedophiles’ friend the Labour candidate D. Ben Rees. The Plaid candidate was Michael Farmer.

David Benjamin Rees, Dr D. Ben Rees, was born in Ceredigion in west Wales, has been a Minister in the Presbyterian Church of Wales since 1962 and is a leader of the Welsh community in Liverpool. D. Ben Rees leads one of Liverpool’s five remaining Welsh chapels His small publishing house, Modern Welsh Publications Ltd, was established in 1963 and until 1968 it operated from  Abercynon in south Wales. Since 1968 it has operated from Liverpool. Being a paedophiles’ friend, D. Ben Rees is of course a Man Of Peace and has published extensively about pacifism and pacifists. See previous post for more information about D. Ben Rees.

Michael Farmer, the Plaid candidate in Conway in Feb 1974, was a judge; Farmer died in 2011. His obituary in the Torygraph told us that:

His Honour Judge Michael Farmer

His dedication to the language was recognised in the invitation, in 2009, to join the Welsh Bardic Circle as a Derwydd (Bard). His Bardic name was Ustus o’r Glyn (Justice from “Glyn” — a reference to his childhood home at Glynllifon, north Wales). He was due to give the main address for the Law Society of Wales at the National Eisteddfod in Wrexham in August this year.

As a judge, Farmer could be impatient with lawyers, believing that they were highly paid people who ought be capable of doing their jobs properly – and those who did not got short shrift. But he displayed the utmost patience and kindness to litigants.

Pryce Michael Farmer was born on May 20 1944 and educated at Ysgol Dyffryn Nantlle, Pen y Groes… He… won a place at King’s College, London, where he read English before deciding that his future lay elsewhere…

In order to raise the funds for his legal studies he taught English for four years at St David’s College, Llandudno , then studied at Gray’s Inn.

There was abuse of some of the pupils at St David’s College and as a member of Gray’s Inn, Michael Farmer knew Dafydd and Ronnie Waterhouse’s Big Mate Sir William Mars-Jones.

He was called to the Bar in 1972, and began practice on the then Wales and Chester Circuit, having accepted an offer of pupillage and later tenancy at Sedan House, Lord Hooson’s chambers in Chester.

So Michael Farmer joined the endemically corrupt Wales and Chester Circuit, in the Chambers of Ronnie’s mate Emlyn Hooson, who concealed Dafydd’s gang for decades and defended some of them when they were finally charged…  Michael Farmer will have known ’em all, including Dafydd’s pal Huw Daniel.

From 1973 to 1995 he practised common law in north Wales and Cheshire and was involved in many high profile cases in both the civil and criminal jurisdictions; he also chaired numerous public inquiries . In 1993 he became an assistant recorder, and two years later took Silk. Instead of pursuing his career in London, however, Farmer elected to remain in Chester as head of Chambers at Sedan House , which he established as north Wales’s leading provider of Welsh language advocates.

Also in 1995, Farmer was appointed a Recorder of the Crown Court, a post he held until he was elevated to the Circuit bench in 2001. In 2004 he was appointed the Designated Family Judge for North Wales as well as deputy Liaison Judge for the Welsh language on the Wales and Chester Circuit.

A Family Judge?? Right in the thick of it, all those parents standing accused and judged by social workers who were part of a trafficking gang.

In 2004 he was appointed Deputy Senior Judge for the Sovereign Base areas of Dhekelia and Akrotiri in Cyprus and regularly spent several weeks a year on the island…

Dr D.G.E. Wood, Dafydd’s accomplice, has been holding ‘surgeries’ on Cyprus for a few years now.

Farmer was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant for Clwyd in 2010. A devout Roman Catholic who converted to the faith in his teenage years, he considered it a great privilege to be asked to read a bidding prayer in Welsh during the papal visit to Britain in September 2010 at Cofton Park, Birmingham…An enthusiastic player and supporter of rugby, he was president of his local rugby club, Clwb Rygbi Yr Wyddgrug, from 2001 to 2005.

Wyddgrug is the Welsh name for Mold. Ronnie Waterhouse’s stronghold…

Michael Farmer is survived by his wife, Olwen (née Roberts), whom he married in 1975, and by their son and daughter, both practising barristers at their father’s old chambers in Chester.

Michael Farmer also had an obit published in the ‘Cheshire News’, in which he was described as ‘the best legal mind in Wales’. Most dead judges suddenly become the best legal minds of their country; I look forward to Huw Daniel dying and his obit telling us that he was as thick as yak shit, had zilch biological knowledge which he used to good effect when he prosecuted the Rev Emyr Owen for offences which were a physiological impossibility (see previous posts), achieved his job solely as a result of his father’s position and was corrupt.

 

Dr Laurence Chesterman – Behind The Facade – Service ...

I’ll be paying tribute to you on this blog as well Huw!

Michael Farmer died at 66 yrs old, of a suspected heart attack. He died just as Operation Pallial opened and as it became clear that there would be some sort of Review of the Waterhouse Inquiry undertaken soon.

Farmer’s son is Sion ap Mihangel and his daughter is Mair ap Mihangel and both are Chester-based barristers, working from their father’s old chambers. I see Sion’s name a lot in press reports of criminal trials, but not Mair’s.

I have never encountered Michael Farmer or his children. Michael Farmer might have been a really nice bloke who was appalled at the conduct of his colleagues; after all, I used to work in the same Bangor University Dept as some of Dafydd’s mates. However, Michael Farmer knew what his colleagues were doing, he spent his whole career among them. They were so bent that there was no way that it could have escaped his notice. He personally knew Huw Daniel, John Roch, Malcolm Pill, Crispin Masterman, Ian Murphy and all the others whom I watched ignore the most damning evidence of serious organised crime while they were in Court and their names are on even more damning documents in my possession (see previous posts). Michael Farmer spent a career in Chambers and on the Bench in Wales/Chester during the years when the entire legal system in that region dedicated itself to the facilitation of a massive trafficking gang.

 

 

The same candidates stood for Conway in Oct 1974: Wyn Roberts (15,614), D. Ben Rees (12,808) and Michael Farmer.

In 1979, the year of Thatch’s landslide, Wyn polled 18,142 and the Labour candidate Gerson Wyn Davies 12,069. The Liberal candidate was Roger Roberts and Emyr Price stood for Plaid.

Roger Roberts is a leading figure in the Methodist Church in the Llandudno area and is a paid-up paedophiles’ friend who for no explicable reason became Lord Roger Roberts in 2004. Roger went to school in Llandudno and studied at UCNW and the Handsworth Methodist College in Birmingham. For many years he was the President of the Welsh Liberals and then the Welsh Liberal Democrats. Roberts served as a Councillor on Aberconwy Borough Council and has tried to become the MP for Conway five times. See previous posts.

 

Emyr Price, who died in 2009, was born in Bangor in 1944 and brought up in Pwllheli and Porthmadog. His family was ‘staunchly radical’, one side of his family supporting the Liberal Party and, on his father’s side, supporting the Independent Labour Party. Educated at UCNW, Price took his first job as Head of the history department at Ysgol Brynrefail in Llanrug, staying there until 1973 when he was appointed as a lecturer at the Normal College in Bangor. Price also at some point studied at the LSE.

Emyr Price edited the Transactions of the Caernarfonshire Historical Society, 1981-84. In 1983 Price was appointed Editor of ‘Y Faner’ (‘The Flag’), the Welsh-language newspaper, though Price continued to hold classes under the auspices of the WEA and the extramural department at Bangor. In 1984 ‘Y Faner’ took a lead in collecting money for the Welsh Language Centre at Nant Gwrtheyrn, on the tip of the Llyn Peninsula and for the striking miners of south Wales. Price’s editorship of ‘Y Faner’, however, coincided with the nadir of the paper’s fortunes: he stayed only three years and, losing readers, the weekly folded shortly after the Arts Council withdrew its subsidy.

Emyr Price then found work as a producer and scriptwriter of current affairs programmes for HTV, notably ‘Canrif y Werin’ (‘The People’s Century’) and documentaries about such luminaries as Gwynfor Evans and Cledwyn Hughes, Leaders of Plaid Cymru and the Labour Party in Wales, both of whom he admired greatly. Price was also a scriptwriter for S4C.

Price was active in Plaid in north west Wales, ‘but found himself sympathising with the Labour Party, too. A percipient critic of the nationalists from a left-wing point of view and of Labour for its reluctance to deliver devolution, he deplored the fact that Plaid Cymru had consistently failed to make common cause with the quarrymen of north Wales and the miners and steelworkers of the south, which, Price believed, would have brought forward self-government for Wales by decades’.

It might have escaped Price’s attention, but when Wales was given a National Assembly, it did not contain quarrymen or steelworkers and it still doesn’t. It is full of ex-social workers and/or Councillors who served on notoriously corrupt Councils which had paedophile gangs operating within their children’s homes.

 

Emyr Price was also a Trustee of the Lloyd George Museum. Price is the father of Angharad Price of Bangor University’s School of Welsh. I was told by two high achieving first language Welsh academics who grew up in north Wales and who were both forced out of Bangor University by the paedophiles’ friends that standards at the School of Welsh were terrible, but it was a hub of the well-connected in north Wales, so no-one dared touch them and they spent their entire time giving each other prizes and medals and writing glowing reviews of each others books. Shortly after I was told this, the School of Welsh in Bangor was ranked the worst performing Celtic Studies Dept in the UK; it was deemed to be worse than Cambridge University’s Celtic Studies, which is based in England.

I had the pleasure of meeting Angharad once. It was surreal. I was chatting to a friend in the University one lunch-time – one of the high performers who was forced out of her job at Bangor for being a little too excellent and making a few too many others look embarrassingly mediocre – when a woman arrived, ignored me and started talking to, or rather ordering around, my friend. After issuing instructions, the woman asked after my friend’s little boy. She then literally began a 10 minute conversation about nappies and how lovely little babies are, conducted in the tone that one uses when talking to toddlers and ignored all attempts by my friend to return to matters academic. The vacuous idiot walked off and did not acknowledge me at any point. I said to my friend ‘who the fuck was that?’ My friend replied ‘That is a woman of no substance.’ My friend explained that the vacuous idiot was indeed a vacuous idiot but a very sharp-elbowed one and the reason why she held a conversation about lovely little babies with my friend was that it was the woman of no substance’s way of telling my friend that all that would be discussed with her were babies. Nothing intellectually taxing, because my friend was not worthy of inclusion in such conversations. My friend observed that the woman of no substance had no ability but her dad was very influential and it was accepted that a Chair would be on its way to the woman of no substance very soon.

The woman of no substance was of course Angharad Price. Angharad et al successfully elbowed my friend out of her job a few weeks after I witnessed the exchange about babies. Angharad is now Professor Angharad and she has won lots of prizes and awards after being judged as brilliant by her dad’s mates. The School of Welsh is still performing very badly on a UK-wide basis. Angharad went to Jesus College, Oxford.

Plus ca change…

There really is nothing radical about this bunch who rely on nepotism and cronyism for absolutely everything. It is ironic that some of them did have grandparents or great-grandparents who fought long and hard battles and who were admirable people. One looks at their complacent entitled descendants who plagiarise and shaft everybody else and have been told since they were 10 years old that of course they will one day have a Chair at a Welsh university and one just feels very sad really. If I was one of the freedom fighting rebels of a previous generation I’d be ashamed of the line…

 

 In 1987, the year that the Windbag got his hopes up and an unholy alliance colluded with the attempt to imprison me shortly after the General Election, Thatch’s lapdog Wyn romped home again with 15,730. Roger Roberts polled 12,706 and the Labour Party wheeled out the dreadful Betty Williams, who drummed up 9,049 votes. Plaid fielded Rhodri Davies.
Betty finally made it through the doors of the Commons as one of Blair’s babes in 1997. Betty’s previous included serving as a Gwynedd County Councillor and as Mayor of Arfon. Betty knew all about Dafydd’s gang which was probably why, when she did become an MP, she had me thrown out of Tesco for asking her about the abuse of psych patients when she was campaigning in 2005 and ignored letters from other Empowered Service Users detailing abuse and neglect of patients. Betty’s brother farmed in the Nantlle Valley and he had a reputation for approaching people who weren’t quite on his land but quite near by and reminding them that he was Betty’s brother. He came across me in a disused quarry near Talysarn and he interrogated me as to who I was. He finished off with ‘my sister’s Betty Williams, she’s an MP’. I felt like telling him that he probably shouldn’t advertise that, Betty was a standing joke.
Betty’s vintage tells us that she will have known about George Thomas and his child molesting.
Like many paedophiles’ friends, Betty was vulnerable to their abuses herself; she has a son with learning disabilities who later became too much for Betty and was placed in a ‘care home’. Betty told people that he had become ‘socially unacceptable’ which of course gave rise to observations that so was Betty.
I used to know someone who was friends with Betty’s other son, who told me many interesting anecdotes, including Betty sending him and her son out to buy condoms for her when the boys were teenagers, while Betty was having an affair with a local man. Betty, it is not a good idea to ask 15 year old boys to buy condoms for you, they will never forget it and will derive much entertainment from the memories when they are adults. On a rather sadder note I was told that Betty didn’t know how to best deal with her learning disabled son, so she would lock him in his room where the poor bugger just howled and cried for hours. Well Betty couldn’t call on the expertise of the Top Docs or Gwynedd Social Services could she, they didn’t have any and were far too busy running a trafficking gang to acquire any.
It is not easy being the parent of a young man with learning disabilities but you Betty could have at least tried to fight his corner for him instead of joining a Council full of abusers because you fancied a seat in the Commons you dipstick.
It was for the 1987 General Election campaign that Mandy concocted the PR video ‘Kinnock – The Movie’, which maxed out on Kinnock’s Welshness and his lovely wife Glenys and those two nice children of his and a few of his older relatives. There was much footage of the Windbags walking along the Great Orme in north Wales. Neither of them has ever lived in the Great Orme area, but it is of course part of the Conway constituency. Which fielded Betty of the Abusers as their Labour candidate in 1987. In 1987, the Windbag particularly stressed his Love Of The NHS and his mum’s job as a District Nurse. Indeed Windbag, that’s how you knew that the Top Docs in south Wales were instrumental in concealing George Thomas’s sexual assaults on children and young people.
In Dec 1986, Oliver Brooke, the Professor of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School, was jailed for the possession of child porn. Ollie was a leading figure in a pan-European paedophile ring, of which Dafydd’s gang were a part. Ollie had his sentence reduced on appeal by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane, who compared Ollie’s habit of collecting child porn to collecting cigarette cards. Ollie was released just before the General Election of 1987. Ollie’s Top Doctor colleagues at St George’s who had concealed the ring remained in their posts.
At the 1992 General Election, Betty had another go in Conway. She came third; Wyn polled 14,250, Roger Roberts polled 13,255 and Betty netted 10,883 votes. Rhodri Davies for Plaid came fourth.
Days after the 1992 General Election, five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal were killed by the Brighton firebomb (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’). In 1992 the North Wales Police ended their investigation into child abuse, maintaining that there was no evidence of a paedophile ring. During their investigation, more than 100 complaints were made about children at the Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor – which was in the constituency of Conway – being seriously sexually and physically abused. A file was sent to the DPP, Dame Barbara Mills. There were no prosecutions. Ty’r Felin was run by Nefyn Dodd and most of the complaints were about him. Nefyn Dodd was a friend of Dafydd’s.
I have been told that Nefyn Dodd and his wife June had a daughter who was as callous as her parents and who had a relationship with one of the sons of Mr Porter, the Headmaster of Hillgrove School. I was told that Mr Porter’s son was mistreated by the Dodd’s daughter and that the whole Porter family suffered at the hands of the monstrous Dodds. Which could well have been used as one of the levers to ensure that Mr Porter forced me out of my teaching job at Hillgrove years later, after I raised concerns about Prestwood People Trafficking Ltd. I had previously presumed that only the standard threats would have been used, although I knew that Mr Porter had two close relatives who were in the clutches of the mental health services and of course there were the children of the Top Docs and social workers who were pupils at Hillgrove who were being abused at home…
People of north Wales: You really shouldn’t take this sort of shit from the gang. I can understand how vulnerable you feel when your own relatives are in their clutches, but you might have observed that there is no more respect or care shown to people who do the bidding of Dafydd, Keith Fearns et al. Everyone is abused because Dafydd and the gang don’t know any other way of conducting themselves. 

 

  •  In 1997, Things Could Only Get Better because unfortunately Betty won Conway, with 14,561 votes. Roger Roberts polled 12,965 and David Jones for the Tories polled 10,085. Rhodri Davies for Plaid came fourth. The vile Wyn had been kicked upstairs to the Lords, so David Jones, the nasty solicitor pal of Elwyn Jones, stood as the Conservative candidate.
Although Betty seriously pissed off a lot of people around Bethesda and Caernarfon, she won Conway again in 2001 with 14,366 votes against the Tory David Logan’s 8,147.
In 2005 – when Betty had me thrown out of Tesco in Bangor for Taking the Name Of The NHS In Vain – Betty polled 12,479. Guto Bebb for the Tories drew in 9,398 suckers and Gareth Roberts for the Lib Dems received 6,723 votes. Plaid’s Paul Rowlinson polled 3,730. I met Paul Rowlinson, he was campaigning in Tesco a few days after Betty had me thrown out of there. So I raised the matter of the abuse of mental health patients at the Hergest Unit with Paul. It was a matter of ‘um, er, well, um, I, er…’. Paul Rowlinson stood as the Plaid candidate for Delyn in 2016; in an interview he named Bethesda as his home town. Then he will have known what was happening to the victims of Dafydd’s gang in Bethesda and will know about the Perfect Slaves.
In 2004, Conwy had the highest rate of suicide among women in England and Wales, with the exception of Camden. Conwy is a relatively affluent, rural area. An NHS professional admitted to me that the suicide figure was solely because the consultant psychiatrist for Conwy, Dr Tony Roberts, refused to recognise depression in women and diagnosed them as having borderline personality disorders and refused to treat them. In 2002 Dr Tony Roberts diagnosed me with a borderline personality disorder and ordered every other Top Doc not to treat me. When an on-call GP asked for Roberts’s advice after assessing me as ‘suicidal ++++’, Roberts sent a note back saying ‘Do Nothing’. Roberts formerly worked at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. He was unhinged and dangerous and was the Clinical Director of the Hergest Unit while complaints of patients being assaulted by staff poured in and the death rate soared. The GMC refused to even investigate my complaint against Tony Roberts and I now have a copy of a forged document which was found in the possession of the GMC, purporting to be a letter from me about Tony Roberts (see post ‘The General Medical Council And Yet Another Forged Document’).
Tony Roberts remained working at the Hergest Unit until about four years ago. There was suicide after suicide after suicide.
This was what Betty Williams and everyone else ignored. A genocide.
Guto Bebb was a Tory by 2005 – indeed he still is – but before becoming a Tory, Guto was Chair of Plaid in Caernarfon. Guto’s grandfather was Ambrose Bebb, one of the early founders of Plaid and a mate of Dafydd’s from the Good Old Days. Ambrose was interesting because he was one of the early members of Plaid who had links with fascist groups in Europe, which later left Plaid vulnerable to accusations of ‘Plaid supported Hitler’. It wasn’t quite like that, I think that it was more a case of Ambrose et al being part of that generation who were often attracted to either fascism or communism and in the case of Ambrose, the attraction was tied up with an interest in the Catholic nationalism of some European countries. I’m not convinced that Ambrose was out in Germany goose-stepping with the best of them.
Guto grew up in north Wales, his family are from north Wales and Guto studied at Aberystwyth University. Even Guto didn’t miss that trafficking gang which has conducted business around him for his entire life. See previous posts for more information about Guto Bebb.
In 2010, the constituency of Conway became the constituency of Aberconwy. Aberconwy is centred on Llandudno, Conwy town and associated suburbs such as Deganwy and Penrhyn Bay, along with the Conwy Valley. Bangor is not part of the Aberconwy constituency. Aberconwy is a mostly affluent constituency and very ‘English’, except for the Conwy Valley, which is affluent but Welsh. The paedophiles’ friends have an historical stronghold in the Llanwrst/Conwy Valley area.
Guto Bebb is the Tory MP for Aberconwy, he has held the seat since 2010, although in 2017 the Labour candidate Emily Owen only polled some 600 votes fewer than Guto.
I suspect that Dr Chris Hunter and his Tarots may have had something to do with the highly disturbed pregnant teenager being transported to the Deep South or others like her.
‘Neath Farm School’ is correctly known as Glamorganshire Farm School. It was originally established in 1858 as Glamorganshire Reformatory School; in 1933, under the 1933 Children and Young Person’s Act, it became an Approved School. It housed up to 70 boys between 14 and 17 years old at the time of their admission and provided ‘instruction in farming, gardening and carpentry’. In 1973, Glamorganshire Farm School became a ‘Community Home with Education’, under the control of West Glamorgan County Council (later Neath Port Talbot County Council). Most of the original buildings were demolished during the early 1990s and since 1996 the site has been occupied by the Hillside Secure Children’s Home, which was in the news just weeks ago after a 14 year old boy died there.
In 2006, Wales Online reported that as a result of Operation Goldfinch, an extensive police investigation into the abuse of children and young people in children’s homes and Approved Schools across south Wales, including at Neath Farm School, a total of nearly £3 million had been paid in compensation to 162 claimants across south Wales. As a result of Operation Goldfinch, 17 people were convicted of abusing children.

Operation Goldfinch was highly controversial for its method of ‘trawling’ for witnesses and evidence. In 2002, the Home Affairs Select Committee pointed out that it and similar operations run by more than 30 police forces across England and Wales ran the ‘unusually high’ risk of causing miscarriages of justice. One reason for concern was the opportunity to apply for compensation.

It may be the case that some people do jump on the bandwagon if/when they hear that an investigation is underway into the abuse of residents at institutions in which they were housed. Some people will do pretty much anything for money. However, I suspect that the iceberg really involves the opposite; that huge numbers of people who were abused by the state while in ‘care’ contexts not only never apply for compensation but don’t even  know that an investigation is underway, if indeed an investigation is ever held. I have heard of no investigation into Denbigh. The only person who ever sued Dafydd and Denbigh was Mary Wynch and just look what she had to go through; after Dafydd et al fessed up and agreed compensation, they then simply refused to pay, telling Mary that she would have to return to court to enforce payment. Mary did try and pursue her case. She was completely stuffed over by Home Secretary Michael Howard and left ruined, as an old lady.

The Waterhouse Inquiry was deliberately not widely advertised in north Wales. Most of the hundreds and hundreds of kids who had passed through children’s homes in north Wales – of those who were still alive – had no idea that it was even happening. I was barely aware of it, until Ronnie published his report and Lucille Hughes appeared on the TV, snapping ‘I am not resigning, I am retiring’ and we all yelled ‘look, it’s Lucille, Dafydd’s mistress’. I spent much of the time during the Waterhouse Inquiry sitting in the Hergest Unit with people who had been kids in care in north Wales. No-one even discussed that Inquiry, let alone asked if anyone wanted to give evidence.

One former kid in care whom I knew, Mandy Currie, constantly seriously injured and tried to kill herself and in the end Hergest refused to admit her because she was ‘manipulative’. She was, but she was also desperate. Tony Francis then arranged for her to ‘begin a new life’ in the south of England, where she had never lived and didn’t know anyone. We later heard that Mandy had been in the south of England for three weeks when she threw herself off of a bridge and broke her back. Mandy had been in children’s homes in north Wales and had then been fostered by two social workers who lived near Caernarfon, Blod and Brian. According to Mandy they violently assaulted her.

I don’t remember anyone mentioning the forthcoming Waterhouse Inquiry to Mandy. Instead, just before it began, Tony Francis transported her to England where he must have known that she would try and kill herself within days.

What I do remember doing during the late 1990s, was campaigning with other patients against the retraction of services of the Day Centre in the Hergest Unit and then against its total closure. It did close, in spite of Empowered Service Users repeatedly overwhelmingly voting to keep it open. The Day Centre was at one point the only part of the ‘service’ which was any good, everyone went there because they were trying to avoid the thugs of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team and their laughable ‘service’. Who wanted the Day Centre closed? The Arfon Community Mental Health Team. Because it provided an alternative to them and hundreds of people voted with their feet and opted for the Day Centre, not for a gang of sociopaths.

After the Day Centre closed down, numerous patients became destitute or died.

There was, years later, an investigation into the Arfon CMHT and three of them were dismissed for neglecting patients. No-one told the Empowered Service Users that those bastards were under investigation, we’d have queued all night to give evidence if necessary. And no-one was ever invited to apply for compensation because of what they experienced at the hands of Keith Fearns and his henchmen.

Keith Fearns, Maggie Fookes and Julie Evans were dismissed from the Arfon CMHT. They all immediately set themselves up in business as therapists. They are all still working as therapists.

 

If the police have been trawling for evidence and offering compensation, they’ve never dragged their net in my direction or in the direction of anyone whom I know.

When the Home Affairs Select Committee were expressing their concerns about the police going on fishing expeditions, I was under attack once more by the gang in north Wales and had been arrested and charged with ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’ on the basis of the perjury of Davies and some eight or nine Angels. Davies made eight calls to the police in one day demanding that they arrest me. He was sitting in the National Assembly with Jane Hutt, the then Minister for Health and her officials at the time and I was sitting in a locked ward in the Herget Unit, having been injured by four Angels who had assaulted me. Tony Roberts refused to give me access to the police to report the assault. As soon as the bruises faded, Roberts waddled in and stated that he would be discharging me because I had a Borderline Personality Disorder. I told him that I’d report the assault upon me to the police. Roberts snapped that I might as well not leave immediately because the police were on their way to arrest me. I told him to take a running jump and I hitch hiked back home before I was assaulted by Angels again. Within an hour of me arriving home, two police officers turned up and arrested me for threatening to kill Alun Davies.

The case finally came to Court more than a year later. The charges were withdrawn on the first day of the trial, when it became clear that industrial scale perjury had taken place. By which time I had been forced out of my job at Hillgrove School and had lost my home.

 

Trawling??? Compensation?? Don’t make me laugh, most of us never get anywhere near it.

In response to the fears of the Home Affairs Select Committee, Carol Floris, advice and support manager of Voices From Care Cymru, stated that she ‘believes compensation was an important part of the healing process for many of the alleged victims’.

Voices From Care Cymru was established upon the recommendation of Ronnie Waterhouse. The Patron of Voices from Care Cymru was one Sir Ronald Waterhouse. Voices From Care Cymru ended up in the middle of a scandal after one of its officers, Steve Messham, stole the funds. Steve was the former Bryn Estyn resident who wrongly named Lord McAlpine as being one of the men who abused him at Bryn Estyn, which resulted in the most almighty BBC scrap and McAlpine suing a few folk for libel.

So Steve Messham was involved with Ronnie’s charity. I don’t know anyone else who’s life was ruined by that gang who was. No wonder Steve got invited onto the TV, he could be relied upon to name the wrong people and cause a row which would result in allegations that the Bryn Estyn kids were all lying criminals and there was no abuse. There was, but no-one asked the real victims who could provide details. Instead they did all that they could to ensure that they weren’t still alive by the time that the Waterhouse Inquiry began.

 

There is a Facebook group for the former residents of Neath Farm School. It is clear from the comments that they didn’t really know what Operation Goldfinch was about and only one of them mentioned being interviewed. Here are two of the photos that former residents of Neath Farm School put on Facebook:

Peter Hain was the Labour MP for Neath, 1991-2015, but by the time that Lord Hain held the seat, Neath Farm School was pretty much gone. However, Lord Hain’s predecessor knew all about Neath Farm School.

Donald Richard Coleman (19 September 1925 – 14 January 1991) was the Labour MP for Neath, 1964-91. Coleman was born in Barry, the son of a coal miner. Coleman was educated at Cadoxton Boys’ School and Cardiff Technical College. He later attended what became Swansea University as a mature student between 1950-54. Coleman held a number of technical positions at laboratories at Cardiff and Swansea before securing an appointment in 1954 as metallurgist to the Research Department of the Steel Company of Wales, Abbey Works, Port Talbot, in which position he remained until his election to Parliament in 1964. Coleman had joined the Labour Party in November 1948 and became a member of the Co-operative Party in 1955. He had also stood as a Labour candidate for Swansea Borough Council in 1960.

Until the 1960s, Neath was regarded as a predominantly coal mining constituency, as a seat where the nominee of the NUM would have a considerable advantage at the selection. Both of Coleman’s long-serving predecessors had been NUM nominees. However, Coleman, against expectations, was chosen at the fourth ballot and thus inherited one of the safest Labour seats in the whole of Britain. I’d be interested to know how that happened.

Coleman served as PPS to the molester George Thomas, Secretary of State for Wales. Coleman also worked for Protector of the Paedophiles Baroness Eirene White (see previous posts) and the Windbags’ mate – or their mate until they knifed him – Lord Cledwyn.

Coleman was an Assistant Opposition Whip, 1970-74, Lord Commissioner of the Treasury, 1974-78, Vice-Chamberlain of the Household, 1978-79 – which involved writing a daily parliamentary report for Lilibet – an Opposition Whip in 1979 and Opposition Spokesman on Welsh Affairs, 1981–83. Coleman also served as delegate to the Council of Europe, 1968-73.

Coleman was regarded as being on the right wing of the Labour Party and in September 1983 he backed Peter Shore rather than the Windbag for Party leader and Denzil Davies for Deputy Leader. Following the Windbag’s election as Leader, Coleman did not hold another front bench position.

Coleman announced in early 1990 that he intended to stand down from Parliament at the next General Election.

Coleman was especially prominent in the public life of Neath, Swansea and West Glamorgan and his leisure interests included membership of the chorus of the Welsh National Opera. He was also involved with the Swansea Amateur Opera Company.. He was a member of the Select Committee on Overseas Aid and was Parliamentary Adviser to the Institute of Medical Sciences. In 1984 Don Coleman was appointed a member of the Panel of Chairmen of the House of Commons, a notably powerful body at Westminster.

Coleman had been appointed a JP for the County Borough of Swansea in 1962. He was appointed Deputy Lieutenant for West Glamorgan in 1985.
