The Price Is Right

As promised in my comment that followed my post ‘Vichy Warwick’, I have been inspired to write this post by the media coverage of John Allen’s latest jail sentence for the sexual abuse of kids in his care in north Wales. Allen received 14 years, but he was already serving a lengthy jail term at the time of the trial and Allen had served I think two prison sentences before that for sexually abusing kids in care. My point is that there was very little media coverage and the coverage that there was portrayed John Allen as a lone Filthy Pervert rather than one of the key figures in a multi million pound international trafficking gang that ran north Wales; Gwynne and Dafydd were two other key figures…

I have spent a day perusing some of my 10,000 documents as well as documents that others have sent me and given me permission to use, and I will name some of the many people named on my documents who have not yet starred on the blog who knew that the problem in north Wales was a lot greater than one Filthy Pervert. Some of these people subsequently reached senior roles after passing through north Wales years ago and they have no idea that I have documents mentioning their names…See the source image

Some old favourites will be discussed again in this post because after another read of documents that I had only previously had time to flick through quickly, I am left with an even greater sense of:

‘How did they get away with this?’

Even with a powerful accomplice.See the source image

I have a number of other blog posts under development that need further work, so I’ll ask readers to bear with me if I don’t provide full background details to all the events to which I refer in this post. They have virtually all been discussed in detail in previous posts, sometimes more than once. Regular readers will be well-acquainted with the basics; I want to simply flag up just how many people knew that something was terribly wrong in north Wales (and in the other areas in which linked rings/gangs were operating) and that it was so much more than one Filthy Pervert.

I’ll kick off with events from 1988, when I was working in the Cancer Research Campaign team at Surrey University, led by Prof Vincent Marks, brother of the then BMA President/Chairman Dr John Marks. John Marks was a barrister as well as a Top Doc and at the time was doing battle with Ken Clarke at the Dept of Health. Marks and Ken hated each other but they came to an arrangement whereby they’d attack me in collaboration because they were both concealing the same very serious criminality and they couldn’t beat each other…

When I was working with Vincent, the BMA were providing Tony Francis and the self-styled ‘BMA psychiatrists’ – the Gang had arranged themselves into a pressure group to lobby for my incarceration – with advice re how not to respond to my serious complaints and to instead have me convicted and imprisoned for offences that had not been committed.

Previous posts mentioned that after encountering a dreadfully offensive GP in Surrey near Witley, a Michael Hudson with whom I gave up after one 20 min encounter, I registered with Dr Nigel Baldock at Grayshott Surgery on the Surrey/Hampshire border who was much more pleasant. Unfortunately Dr Baldock soon mentioned that my previous GP from Bangor, Dr Wood, had rung him up and what a nice chat they had…

Hudson was struck off some time before I began this blog; after I began blogging, Dr Baldock voluntarily relinquished his licence to practice. During the latest perusal of my documents, I discovered a short letter that Wood had written to a Top Doc in Surrey dated 11 July 1988, but the name and address of the Top Doc cannot be read on the copy due to the poor quality of the copying. This was obviously Wood’s first approach to any Top Docs in Surrey, where I had been working since Spring 1988. As was characteristic of Wood et al, the letter was written without my knowledge, not in any official capacity and was sent from Wood’s home address, at the time Tyddyn Hen Farm, Llandegfan.

Prof Peter Greig-Smith of the Dept of Plant Biology, UCNW and a colleague of Wood’s wife Chris Wood, was a neighbour of the Woods at Llandegfan. Llandegfan was a very popular village with UCNW staff and the better paid NHS workers. See ‘Our Man In Llandegfan’.

The village was choc a block with Top Docs and academics; Lord Wyn Roberts, the Tory MP and Welsh Office Minister, the Gang’s bestest friend, came from near Llandegfan and his huge extended family lived around every corner. Wyn Robert’s father was a Methodist Minister and the family were the sort of family in which many members were in influential positions; Wyn’s brother Eifion Roberts QC was a barrister/judge. Wyn et al basically just intimidated the plebs. Wyn worked for the security services, as did Greig-Smith…

Greig-Smith was a former colleague of Douglas Hurd’s uncle, the Cambridge botanist Edred Corner (see ‘Additional Security Measures’). Hurd worked for the security services himself and served as Home Secretary, 2 September 1985-26 October 1989, during the years of enormous criminality on the part of the Gang, including in my direction. Douglas Hogg, a barrister, was Hurd’s Home Office Minister, 10 Sept 1986-26 July 1989; Hogg’s father Quintin aka Lord Hailsham had been assisting with the Gang’s criminality for decades, particularly throughout that little local difficulty the Profumo Affair. Previous posts have discussed how the whole Hogg family – including Douglas’s sister Dame Mary, his wife Sarah and their daughter Charlotte – have served the Gang loyally.

I have only just noticed that Douglas Hogg’s predecessor as junior Minister at the Home Office was Lord Simon Glenarthur, 27 March 1984-10 Sept 1986. When he was junior Minister at the DHSS, 11 June 1983-26 March 1985, Glenarthur was the Minister responsible for closing down the British lab that treated blood products to be used by the NHS that ensured they were free from infection. After Glenarthur closed that lab and ordered that ALL blood products used by the NHS should be purchased from the US, thousands of NHS patients have died from HIV, Hep B etc that they contracted from infected NHS blood products. Glenarthur was told very clearly that this would result; he went ahead nonetheless. See the source imageTop Docs are now stressing that Glenarthur was warned; yet the Top Docs didn’t tell the public either. They just ensured that blood products used by them and their families weren’t infected.

Simon Glenarthur was succeeded as junior Health Minister by Trumpers who appointed Savile to the Broadmoor task force… Trumpers also succeeded Simon when he served as the Chief Whip in the Lords, 27 May 1982-10 June 1983. Simon and Trumpers were obviously some sort of double act, foisted upon the nation by Thatch in order to inflict maximum fuckwittery and harm to the plebs. Simon has numerous business appointments, most of them concerned with aircraft/arms/military/security, but he’s been a Director of Imperial Tobacco as well.

Simon combines these with his keen interest in Healthcare. Simon became a governor of the Nuffield Hospitals in 2000. Since 2001, Simon has been Commissioner of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and since 2002 Director of the MDU. Since 2010, Lord Glenarthur has been governor and a Trustee of King Edward VII’s Hospital Sister Agnes.

Hurd’s favourite teacher at Eton was Alan Barker, who was married to Trumpers. Barker too worked for the security services. Trumpers was Thatch’s junior DHSS Minister, 30 March 1985-13 June 1987 and it was in that role that Trumpers appointed Jimmy Savile to the management task force of Broadmoor. In 1988 Savile was appointed General Manager of Broadmoor; his mate Alan Franey, an NHS senior manager at Leeds General Infirmary, was appointed as CEO of Broadmoor. Savile had been of the Gang for decades and his sex offending was widely known; he was mates with Trumpers. The appointment of Savile and Franey to Broadmoor was endorsed by DHSS Civil Service Mandarins who were mates with Savile themselves, including Brian McGinnis and Clifford Graham, both people with histories of worrying conduct. Clifford Graham lived on the Somerset Levels.

Savile absolutely did not slip through any nets; the mental health system had been colonised by organised crime, in particular paedophilia/sex abuse and Class A drug dealing, for decades and every senior person in the DHSS colluded.

The Gang had been operating a staff exchange scheme with Yorkshire for decades and in 1983, Gren Kershaw, an NHS manager from Yorkshire/Leeds, arrived in north Wales. Gren eventually become CEO of the North East Wales NHS Trust aka the Conwy and Denbighshire NHS Trust and then Chairman of the Welsh Risk Pool (the body that determines negligence payments to those harmed by the NHS). Gren is a complete crook…

Ken Clarke was appointed Heath Secretary on 25 July 1988; he was promoted from his job as a Minister in the DHSS. When the DHSS was split into two Depts in the summer of 1988, Ken became Health Secretary and John Moore became Secretary for Social Services. Moore lived in Wimbledon, on the turf of St George’s Hospital Medical School and many of his neighbours were the better paid staff of St George’s/Springfield Hospitals, including one of the Mr Bigs of the Westminster Paedophile Ring Bodger Chamberlain. Bodger grew up in south Wales, where his dad was Secretary to the Lord Mayor of Cardiff. Bodger had a direct link to Cardiff MP Westminster Molester George Thomas, who after serving as Speaker, 1976-83, was elevated to the Lords as Viscount Tonypandy. Thomas was mates with Gwynne, Dafydd et al and used services provided by the Gang. Other members of Bodger’s family were based in Leicester a la Greville Janner. Greville’s dad Barnett began life as a dodgy lawyer in south Wales; Greville was born in Cardiff. This lot had been linked with each other for a very long time.

It was George Thomas’s good mate and protector Leo Abse, bent lawyer and Labour MP from south Wales, who was Brains behind the Cunning Plan in 1987 to fit me up and imprison me that unravelled in July 1987. See the source imageLeo’s brother Wilfred was a psychiatrist who knew Gwynne and Dafydd and who emigrated to the US to become Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Abse spent the greater part of his career in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he was a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia, 1962-80.

Leo’s other brother Dannie Abse was the poet and Top Doc…

Lord Michael Havers was the Tory MP for Wimbledon, 1970-June 1987. Havers served as Grocer Heath’s Solicitor-General, Nov 1972-March 1974, See the source image Thatch’s Attorney General for England, Wales and N Ireland, 1979-June 1987. It has now been admitted that Havers as AG actively blocked the prosecution of VIP sex offenders, including paedophiles Sir Peter Hayman (a diplomat and very senior security services officer) and Cyril Smith. Thatch appointed Havers as Lord Chancellor on 13 June 1987, but Havers stood down on 26 Oct 1987 on ‘medical advice’ re health grounds. Havers continued to live for a few more years after being too ill to take the strain of being Lord Chancellor, dying on 1 April 1992. Havers was, with Nicholas Edwards – Old Nick was the Welsh Secretary, 1979-June 1987 – two of the key movers and shakers in Leo Abse’s Cunning Plan re me in 1987. Old Nick stood down as an MP in June 1987 ‘on medical advice’ because he too was at death’s door. Old Nick bounced back as a millionaire businessman within months and lived until 17 March 2018. Old Nick standing down as an MP allowed him to make a huge amount of money as a Director of companies that were given big contracts for the development of Cardiff Bay, a taxpayers funded programme that was pushed through at Gov’t level by the Welsh Office when Old Nick was Secretary of State…

I’ve now received info that both Old Nick and Havers suddenly came over all ill to ensure that they were not at the scene of the crime when the Cunning Plan re me came to fruition. The Cunning Plan was supposed to result in my imprisonment in July 1987; so Old Nick got out in June 1987. Havers scarpering was even more worrying; it seems that the Cunning Plan was relying on Havers being Lord Chancellor by the time that I was imprisoned in Risley and my dead body as a result of ‘suicide’ was discovered. I didn’t end up in Risley in July; instead Brown listened in to the phone call in Aug 1987 and heard Dafydd trying to bribe me, thus Brown raised his concerns with Alwyn Jones my Bangor solicitor and with Gwynedd Heath Authority, and I told MIND (run by Dafydd’s mates but I didn’t know that at the time) as well.  Then I placed the small ad in ‘Private Eye’ asking for info on Dafydd. So another plan was hatched to kill me, which I have been told was the King’s Cross Fire in Nov 1987. As usual with the Gang’s brainwaves, that didn’t get me but it did kill a lot of other people. I’ve had info that Havers was warned to step down and get the hell out before the Big Event.Image result for lord michael havers images

I have the names of the Top Docs who pretended that Old Nick was at death’s door, suffering from a serious but unfathomable terminal illness and I’ll be blogging about them soon, but I haven’t yet found out who declared Havers to be so ill that he had to stand down as Lord Chancellor. It was probably Bodger. Perhaps Lord Havers’ son Nigel the luvvie See the source image can let us know if his dad had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer or needed an emergency hysterectomy that was incompatible with being Lord Chancellor.See the source image

Lord Havers’s sister Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss was busy herself in 1988. Gwynne and Dafydd’s partners in crime in the North East had caused such havoc that it had culminated in the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal and Lord Elizabeth was appointed to Chair the Public Inquiry necessary to conceal the havoc, the result of Lord John Walton, Butler-Sloss’s friend Prof Israel Cohen and other mates of Dafydd’s. Walton was President of the GMC, 1982-89, had refused to investigate my complaints about Gwynne and Dafydd and there was now an eruption on his own manor, so help from the highest quarters was needed. See the source image

Michael Havers, Butler-Sloss and their father Sir Cecil Havers, a High Court judge who was Of The Gang in the Olden Days, were all of Inner Temple. As was Ronald Armstrong-Jones, Lord Snowdon’s dad, the barrister son of Robert Armstrong-Jones, the Top Doc/psychiatrist from north Wales who had studied at UCNW before qualifying as a Top Doc at Bart’s. Mr Thrope was also of Inner Temple.

One of those who constantly maintained that the depraved old sex offenders of the North East in business with Dafydd were Caring Doctors and Social Workers was paediatrician Jane Wynne, who was based in Leeds… Jane was happy to double up as the Independent Second Opinion when anyone dared question the sex offenders of the North East.

Jane Wynne was born in Leicester, the elder daughter of John and Margaret Wynne, a family of lefties. Her father was an agricultural economist who moved to Leeds University in the 1950s, and Jane qualified as a Top Doc from Leeds University. Jane went into paediatrics and became a registrar in Nottingham. She married neurologist Simon Currie in 1976 and worked at Leeds University as a Lecturer in Medicine.

Wynne ran clinics for disabled children and joined Dr Michael Buchanan, the ‘Leeds pioneer in the field of child abuse’. Wynne was appointed as one of the ‘new breed’ of consultant community paediatricians in 1984 at the Leeds General Infirmary, her colleague and Expert In Spotting Child Abuse Chris Hobbs joining St James’s University Hospital soon after. See the source imageJane gradually became more involved in child abuse work, while a local celeb and his mates ran the NHS in Leeds.See the source image

Meanwhile in Nottingham, City Of Ken Clarke, the Nottingham Satanic Abuse Scandal had kicked off. The social workers at the centre of the Nottingham Satanic Abuse Scandal were so crazed and ridiculous that their moral panic fell apart at the seams within weeks as the nation collapsed into laughter at the allegation that a Mr Poo Pants – as described by a small child – was at the centre of the Satanic Abuse Ring in Notts, in which late-term foetuses were eaten. Sadly no-one returned the kids who had been removed from their families speedily or pointed to the dreadful state of the local Social Services, the lunacy in Nottingham University’s Dept of Social Sciences/Social Work or the criminality prevailing in the NHS in Nottingham, backed up by the Queen’s Medical Centre and Nottingham Medical School. A local Tory MP being a crooked barrister who was concealing all this shit in his Ministerial positions in the DHSS/Dept of Health didn’t help.

Mr Poo Pants I Presume?Image result for ken clarke images

Butler-Sloss completed and submitted her laughable whitewash of a Report in July 1988. At the time, my complaint about the Gang to the Medical Ombudsman at the Welsh Office was finally being processed. I had no idea that Robert Owen, Prof of Orthopaedic Surgery at Liverpool University, the Medical Ombudsman appointed by the Welsh Office to organise the investigation, was a mate of Dafydd’s, lived in Colwyn Bay, had until recently worked as an orthopaedic surgeon in north Wales and was Of The Gang himself.

On 8 Aug 1988, Wood wrote to Nigel Baldock at Grayshott Surgery; this letter was sent from Wood’s surgery, Glanfa Surgery, in Bangor. At the time the surgery’s headed notepaper named Wood, E.W. Owens and George V. Kurian as practice partners. Like so many Insider witnesses, Ellis Wynn Owens has died prematurely; he qualified as a Top Doc at Cardiff in 1976. George Kurian is now practicing at Bro Dawel, Garth Road, Bangor. Kurian qualified in 1974 at Bombay University (he also clocked up membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, 1976 and of the Royal College of Physicians, 1976). Kurian has worked as a GP in Bangor since at least 1984.

Glanfa Surgery’s patch included Maesgeirchan, the big disadvantaged council estate on the outskirts of Bangor. Not only was the Ty’r Felin children’s home on Maesgeirchan, but some of the Gang’s henchmen as well as their victims lived on Maesg. There were teenaged sex workers on Maesg, I presume because of Ty’r Felin and the Gang, which probably accounted for the big drugs problem on Maesg as well. Maesg had one of the highest crime rates in Wales and it will have been the Gang’s work, yet that was never mentioned amidst the tut-tutting re Maesg. One part of Maesg was much rougher than the rest of the estate and had such a fearsome reputation that people on the council house waiting list would refuse offers of accommodation at the rough end.

Owens and Kurian, like Wood, knew the full explanation for the drugs, violence and presence of teenage ‘slags’ on Maesg…

Wood’s letter of 11 July 1988 to Surrey made very serious allegations about my father that were completely untrue and that I had told Wood were untrue when Wood literally confronted me with them in 1983 and again in 1984. In his letter, Wood stated his allegations as fact and indulged in pure speculation re the ‘considerably damaged personality’ of mine that had resulted from all this. Wood went on to explain in the letter that I was conducting ‘a vendetta against the local psychiatric services’.

Wood’s letter of August 1988 to Nigel Baldock was much lighter in style, stressed how he was just trying to help, told Baldock that if Baldock wanted, Wood would obtain ‘hospital letters’ [from north Wales] and invited Baldock to phone him if he wanted. Wood always had a great time on the phone, his kind offers to make himself available by phone to third parties whom I had just met were the source of much conspiracy and criminality. I can only imagine the scale of what was happening by the few lines referring to the contents of such phone calls that appear in my documentation… Baldock did not document the contents of the call, he simply noted that he had phoned Wood as invited…

I discussed in previous posts my encounter with Michael Browne, a psychiatrist at Brookwood Hospital in Surrey and Browne being so out of it and uninterested in patients that I presumed that he was either ill himself or perhaps had a serious drink problem. Just a few years later, Browne was named in a scandal involving the death of a seriously ill prisoner at Wormwood Scrubs just after Browne had left the cell after having assessed the prisoner as being fine. Browne continued to practice, although that was a high profile case with the Scrubs angrily denouncing Browne and asking how they could ever look after prisoners if, when they are that ill, the screws beg the Doc to act and he just walks away… In Court, Browne could give no explanation for the medical notes that he had made about the prisoner; Browne had lied about the prisoner’s dire clinical state.

Before I saw Michael Browne MD FRCPI FRCPEd FRCPsych DMP on 24 Aug 1988, Vincent Marks had told my senior colleague that Michael Browne was ‘excellent’. I never ever understood why Vincent had said that, but then I had no idea that Vincent was as unscrupulous as the rest of them yet alone that he was up to his neck in a Ken Clarke-Gang-Marks Brothers huge conspiracy.

The paperwork compiled by Browne gives his addresses as Brookwood Hospital, Woking and Farnham Road Hospital. Just during the year that I was in Surrey, there were a number of suicides and a scandal at Brookwood, it was clearly dreadful. When I met F two/three years later, F, who had grown up in Woking and gone to art college at Farnham, told me that Brookwood had a terrible reputation. Being near London, there was also a major Class A drug dealing and distribution scene in the Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire psych hospitals.

A huge swathe of Surrey reaped the benefit of Michael Browne’s skills and did so for decades as well as Wormwood Scrubs and no doubt a few other places. He was lethal, dishonest and still not stopped when he made media headlines. Vincent will not have been the only Top Doc assuring the unsuspecting that Michael Browne was excellent…Image result for ken clarke images

Jeff Crowther, the Psychiatric Nursing Officer who appeared in Ysbyty Gwynedd in the early/mid 1980s and who colluded with so much, grew up in Guildford.

After the Michael Browne experience, I kept one more appointment at Brookwood when I was told that it would be with another doc; Browne having been the Important One who had now ‘seen’ me and passed me onto his junior doc. Unlike Browne she didn’t have the appearance of a corpse preserved in formaldehyde, she was actually alive, but she was the sort of junior doc who is to be found in bad UK psych hospitals: overseas junior doc who almost certainly was working there because she was considered not up to much and hadn’t been able to escape. I didn’t bother to make another appointment.

On 6 Sept 1988 I was admitted to Ysbyty Gwynedd suicidal – I had been staying in Gwynedd – and was discharged on 7 Sept 1988. The ‘discharge’ letter to Baldock – written on 26 Oct 1988 – was seriously weird, a strange cod-psychoanalytic account of my wicked criminal plan to bring down the Caring Top Docs of the Gang that had backfired on me. I remember the junior doc who ‘assessed’ me on that occasion; he told me that I wasn’t depressed, I was just an ‘extreme’ person. The negligence and criminality that was evident of the part of others was not mentioned; by this time Brown had written to Gwynedd Health Authority raising his concern at Dafydd’s Aug 1987 attempt to bribe me into dropping my complaint in return for a place at Liverpool Medical School.

Baldock was never unpleasant but had I been a GP I would have been wondering why, in such a situation, I had not been informed of the discharge for nearly two months and why so much dreadful practice and shocking misjudgements were being ignored by so many.Image result for ken clarke images

On 5 Dec 1988 I had a walking accident in the Devil’s Punchbowl near Hindhead. I injured my ankle quite seriously and some friendly people in a nearby cottage drove me back home – I couldn’t walk – and the next day my whole leg was an impressive black/blue and hugely swollen. My housemates took me to hospital in Guildford where I was told that nothing could be done because I hadn’t actually broken my ankle, I’d torn tendons/ligaments. I was told after I began this blog that there was a great deal more that could have been done and had they done that, I would not still have a serious weakness in that ankle. It seems that the word was out that I was not to be given effective NHS treatment under any circumstances…Image result for ken clarke images

The names of the Consultants running that A&E proudly emblazoned on the documentation re my ankle are G.G. Bodiwals; M.J. Allen; D.N. Quinton. Allen and Quinton have both voluntarily relinquished their licences to practice.

On 23 May 1989 the Prudential sent a form to Nigel Baldock to complete after I made an application for life assurance as part of the mortgage that I was applying for, on the first house that I bought in Rachub, near Bethesda. I had just begun working at St George’s but not liking the south of England/London I spent as much time as possible in north Wales. Once I began this blog, info arrived telling me that the Gang even had a hand in my house purchase/mortgage; they didn’t do anything as transparent as blocking the mortgage – although had Baldock wanted he could have regurgitated the rubbish that he had been told by Wood et al and stopped me from receiving the mortgage/life assurance (instead Baldock was helpful, signing the Pru form on 12/6/89) – but I’ve been told that a spanner was thrown in the works in more subtle ways. The most obvious being a Cunning Plan to give me a permanent contract at St George’s, thus enabling me to feel that it was OK to purchase a house, the Gang knowing that I was going to be forced out of my career within little more than a year, leaving me with a mortgage to pay and no job.

I’ve also received a lot of info about people who lived near me in the Rachub area who were considered to be quite dangerous. I knew about some of this years ago, but I always viewed the Bethesda area as being rather like the part of Somerset in which I grew up. There were a lot of people around who had endured harsh and unpleasant experiences from their earliest years – at the hands of the Gang in Gwynne’s generation – and it had left its mark. I have deliberately not banged on about my former neighbours who were petty criminals on this blog because the real criminals were Gwynne, Dafydd – who came from Bethesda and had a lot of henchmen there – Ioan Bowen Rees (who lived in a grand Plas in Llanllechid, hidden from the rest of us plebs by trees), Huw Daniel (who was also in a tree-hidden Plas about one mile down the lane) etc.Image result for ken clarke images

There was one man in Llanllechid who had previously worked as a teacher in Manchester and served a prison sentence for having sex with one of his pupils. After he came out of prison he moved in with his former pupil, they had two children and moved to Llanllechid, where they ran the Rachub Post Office. The former teacher was on the sex offenders register and was known to all police, Top Docs, social workers etc, as well as many local people. I only found out about this family’s situation years later. In no way do I think that their privacy should have been breached and I’m not suggesting that any police officer should have popped over to my place for a cup of char and had a good gossip. However while unfounded rumours were spread around Llanllechid and Bethesda about me, F and other people, the history of the man who ran the PO was widely known, including by the people who were having a go at us.

Two people in Rachub who were actively harassing us, Malcolm Fox and his then girlfriend Denise Baker, were friends with the Post Office family. Fox and Baker will only have established the friendship in order to extract info and cause trouble, as indeed they did, highly effectively. Fox began a relationship with the wife of the PO man, Fox and Denise had a huge public punch-up and it was then revealed that Denise had been having an affair with a social worker down the road. The PO woman left her husband and kids to move in with Fox and Denise moved in with the man who worked as a children’s social worker on Anglesey. They lived in style, in one of the best houses in Rachub, their daughter went to an independent school at Llandudno and their cars were suitably flash. Denise completed a degree in psychology at UCNW and became a psychologist, working with Vulnerable Wimmin! She was sacked from job after job and at one point was declared to be a danger to vulnerable people. Denise’s career with vulnerable people continued for a few more years until it did finally grind to a halt, although she somehow picked up a PhD on the way – although I know that she did not do the work needed for that PhD – and became Dr Denise Baker-McClearns. Then she accused a vulnerable man in Rachub of sexually abusing her daughter. He denied the offence, there was no evidence, but the man’s wife left him and he was later found dead. Denise rode on, opened a café in Bethesda and was accused of harassing the Empowered Service User who lived above the café, as well as abusing her staff.

Denise’s ex, Malcolm Fox, took up dealing cocaine. This was no secret, but Fox still yelled abuse at F and I in public so he obviously didn’t fear a visit from the plods and the discovery of his stocks in the event of us complaining.

It really wasn’t the plebs in Bethesda who were the problem. It was an utterly rotten local ‘professional’ class who behaved appallingly, colluding with vindictive, dangerous people and were able to successfully intimidate others because people knew how difficult their lives would be if they stood up to Dafydd, Ioan, Huw Daniel and their mates. The criminals in highish places had 100% support from the criminals in the highest places, in Whitehall and Westminster. Including longstanding Gang member crooked lawyer David Hunt from Denbighshire, Minister at the Welsh Office in the late 1980s, before serving as Welsh Secretary, 4 May 1990-27 May 1993, then returning for a brief visit in the same role, 26 June 1995-5 July 1995, to sort out a little local difficulty involving Dafydd…

Hunt is a law graduate of Bristol University who was there at the same time as Wood. He is now Lord Hunt and was senior partner at the law firm Beachcroft Wansbroughs (now DAC Beachcroft) between 1996 and 2005. Hunt is now Chairman of the firm’s financial services division and is regarded as a major figure in the world of insurance and financial services. DAC Beachcroft handle work on behalf of the MDU.See the source image

People in the Rachub area who were paid/forced to do nasty things to me have DIED after the Ah the doctors they were wonderful found that they’d ‘missed’ serious illnesses, as indeed have some of those who were very supportive to me. (Lord David Hunt is, most appropriately, the Vice-President of the Holocaust Educational Trust.) Doing favours for gangsters did not get my foes very far although they feared what would happen to them if they said no to Big Dafydd. I refuse to be intimidated by corrupt, thick Top Docs, crooked officials/Councillors and spiteful little Angels.

My point as ever is where were the authorities, because the info coming into this blog indicates that the authorities knew exactly what was going on.See the source image If people can be the subject of murder plots and no-one at all helps, that suggests to me that the problem is rather greater than the petty criminals…

I have been told that the Gang had people in every bank, building society and insurance company. Including the Prudential, who did sell me expensive, worthless policies, but they didn’t just do that to me. See the source image

My former neighbours were not members of the Gov’t refusing to regulate such activities. 

Nigel Lawson served as Thatch’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, 11 June 1983-26 October 1989. Lawson went back as far as the early 1960s with the Gang’s financiers, including Edward du Cann’s old mates Jim Slater and Peter Walker. Lord David Hunt made friends with them in his youth, as well as with the Tory Gang members local to north Wales such as Tory MEP Beata Brookes.

Edward du Cann also stood down from Parliament in June 1987, but remained alive and kicking, living in style, swindling people and in business with other Gang members/associates until Aug 2017… du Cann could not possibly have not been on board with the 1987 Cunning Plan in my direction, he would never have been able to resist the temptation.

Frank Beck, the Leicestershire social worker whom Greville Janner didn’t really know that well at all once they were both questioned by the police for sex offences against children, served as a Liberal Councillor for Blaby, Lawson’s constituency, from 1983 until quite some time after Beck was placed under investigation by the police. Had Beck not been charged and subsequently jailed, his career in local politics could well have lasted decades.

The Gang had excellent diplomatic links with the Leicestershire ring. Kenneth Scott arrived from Wandsworth to work in a children’s home run by Clwyd County Council in the early-mid 1970s, undertook bugger all training in social care/work at Bangor Technical College (later known as Coleg Menai), survived complaints of abuse against him and rocked up in Leicestershire in the mid-1980s, working in a children’s home that had just waved goodbye to Frank Beck as the manager. Scott was subsequently convicted of child sex offences in the 1990s. Ronnie Waterhouse’s Report stressed that there was no link to Beck because Beck had left the home as manager some three weeks before Scott had been employed…

Ronnie didn’t account for the notion that a RING was in operation, a ring that by definition involved members mingling… But Ronnie couldn’t have worked on the basis of such a theory, because one of the Rules of the Ronnie’s Inquiry was that it would only be restricted to investigating events in venues in north Wales. Very useful if the region was the hub of an international ring, which transported children from north Wales to venues in England, Europe and even the US… The gang rape of a boy who was driven from Wrexham to a house in Chester and then returned to Wrexham was beyond Ronnie’s remit, as was the appearance of kids from Bangor in Dolphin Square, yet alone the holidays in France for the kids provided by John Allen etc.

So Ronnie was not in the least bit interested in Kenneth Scott’s travels from Wandsworth to Clwyd to Leicester, let alone my ‘assessment’ ordered by Bangor Magistrates conducted during 1987/88 by Second Opinion Dr James Earp of Leicester, who had previously visited Denbigh but Didn’t Know Dafydd. Earp had known Gwynne but forgot to tell me that. Neither would Ronnie have been interested to know that the MIND rep in Leicester told me in Aug 1987 that he had heard about Denbigh, ooh it’s terrible up there, there’s a corrupt Welsh Doctor and it’s all mixed up with Freemasonry but James Earp, he’s absolutely fine, and that William Bingley, Legal Director of MIND at their London HQ, said exactly the same but forgot to mention that he and his mum were both good friends of Dafydd and had been mates with Gwynne as well.

Ronnie did mention in his Report that Rob Evans, Lucille’s Assistant Director of Social Services for Gwynedd, had completed his degree at Leicester University, had also worked in Northampton and had been a Team Leader in Dorset before receiving a warm welcome from Lucille. Ronnie didn’t comment that Beck had worked in Leicester AND Northampton, that Paddy Ashdown of MI6 had been a Youth Leader in Dorset at the same time as Rob Evans, Paddy who knew folk who knew me, that Paddy bagged his seat in Yeovil in June 1983 as the Gang moved in on Brown and me AND that Paddy’s predecessor in Yeovil was the Tory Lord John Peyton who knew my grandpa, Edward du Cann, Tom King et al… Ronnie definitely didn’t mention that Rob Evans headed for Gwynedd and Lucille just as the 1984 Gwynne Row erupted and that for years Rob stood by and watched his henchmen/women threaten and intimidate me and perjure themselves in the High Court in attempts to have me imprisoned. Ronnie knew the presiding judges as well.

Here’s one for Ronnie in the Afterlife. John Peyton not only knew grandpa, Tom King and du Cann et al but Peyton worked with Sir Walter Turner Monckton, 1st Viscount. Walter attended Harrow School and then studied at Balliol College, Oxford. He was elected President of the Oxford Union. Monckton was called to the Bar at the Inner Temple. He served as advisor to Edward VIII during the abdication crisis and his Royal connections led to Walter’s appointment as constitutional advisor to the last Nizam of Hyderabad.

Walter worked in propaganda and information during World War II See the source imageand became Solicitor General in Winston Churchill’s 1945 caretaker Gov’t, although he refused to join the Conservative Party. After the 1945 General Election, Monckton returned to legal practice and also continued to serve as advisor to the Nizam of Hyderabad.

Walter finally joined the Tory Party after WW II and became MP for Bristol West in 1951. He was Churchill’s Minister of Labour and National Service, 1951-55. Walter was Anthony Eden’s Minister of Defence 1955–56, but was the only Cabinet Minister to oppose Eden’s Suez policy and was moved to Paymaster-General 1956–57. In 1957 Walter picked up his peerage, Dafydd qualified as a Top Doc and Walter joined the Board of Midland Bank. Lord Monckton was Chairman of Midland Bank (1957–64), President of the Marylebone Cricket Club (1956–1957), President of Surrey County Cricket Club (1950–52 and 1959–65), Chairman of the Iraq Petroleum Company (1958) – the Oil Industry was bankrolling the London Hospital, an institution run by the Gang’s mates who were in business with East End gangsters including the Krays, Lord Bob Boothby et al – Chairman of the Advisory Commission on Central Africa (1960) and Chancellor of the University of Sussex (1961–65).

Walter died in 1965 so he wasn’t at Sussex to be Shocked and Disgusted along with Asa Briggs at Merfyn and his mates throwing red paint over the VIP from America as an anti-Vietnam protest (see ‘The Wizard War’), but no doubt the grudge had already been genetically inherited by Walter’s son Gilbert.See the source image

In 1960 Walter headed the Monckton Commission that concluded that the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland could not be maintained except by force or through massive changes in racial legislation. It advocated a majority of African members in the Nyasaland and Northern Rhodesian legislatures and giving these territories the option to leave the Federation after five years.

Walter’s second wife was Bridget Monckton, 11th Lady Ruthven of Freeland, CBE, the wartime Head of the ATS counterpart in India, the Women’s Army Corps (India) and also of the Women’s Royal Indian Naval Service (WRINS).

Walter was succeeded by his son Gilbert, born of his first marriage. Gilbert was the man who genetically inherited the grudge against Merfyn, which spelt trouble for Merfyn in the next generation, because Gilbert Monkton’s daughter – who also inherited the grudge, the Gang’s grudges being dominant where genetic transmission is concerned – is Rosa, who married Dominic Lawson, Nigel’s son. See the source imageRosa was a close friend of Diana, and Rosa and Nigel’s daughter Dominica was one of Di’s bridesmaids. If I was Rosa I’d be none too happy that my mate had hit a tunnel at speed and lies were told, but Rosa still seems to be civil to Brenda, Carlo et al.

See previous posts for gen on the Moncktons and Lawsons; they are an interesting network with lots of charidee work and links with the grander associates of the Gang as well as Royals. Rosa and Dominic are high profile Catholics.

 

The address on the Prudential paperwork in my possession isn’t the rented flat in which I lived in London, it is my family’s house in Somerset. I remember having some strange conversations with the Prudential man in Bangor who kept finding all the options for my address in London unacceptable in terms of ooh you haven’t lived there long enough etc. That man worked very hard to ensure that I used the Somerset address on my application. I’ve been given info that someone in the Prudential wanted that address in an official capacity for no constructive purpose.

Mr Bridgy Celeb had tripped over Zany Python Graham Chapman, Tommy Leigh-Pemberton (son of Robin, the Governor of the Bank of England, 1983-93), etc, some two years before Prudential wanted to offer me a mortgage. Mr Bridgy Celeb’s celeb friends were all acquired as a result of him bumping into David Kirke of the Oxford Dangerous Sports Club. Nigella Lawson was mates with people from the Oxford DSC when she was at Oxford in the late 1970s/early 1980s.

Graham Chapman sexually abused boys throughout his adult life and simply reminded the one plod who dared question him that he was a Top Doc and he was never troubled again. Chapman, the son of a Leicestershire policeman, had Trained at Bart’s so enjoyed the Armstrong-Jones Family Umbrella. Before Bart’s, Chapman undertook his pre-clinical years at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. Tom King is an Emmanuel alumnus, as were/are a disproportionate number of others in the Gwynne and Dafydd support network. Chapman knew the climbing contingent in Snowdonia well; he lived in Hampstead, but was a keen climber and spent many weekends in Snowdonia. Chapman was good mates with a lot of the Top Docs at the C&A Hospital in Bangor and at Ysbyty Gwynedd, many of whom at the time were Bart’s grads, because of the Armstrong-Jones influence.

Graham Chapman developed one hell of an alcohol problem when he was still quite young and it nearly killed him. He and his mates were always frank about this, but I’d be very surprised if Zany Graham didn’t max out on Class As too; his mates did and his mates like Keith Moon were so excessive that no-one who wasn’t in the Class As scene themselves could have tolerated their company. Even when not out of his head on booze/drugs, Chapman himself was usually deeply offensive and it is a matter of wonder that he didn’t ever find himself confronted by someone who was not going to stand by and watch violent sexual abuse of vulnerable people wrapped up as Zany Pythonesque banter. I’m not sure that Chapman quite plumbed Savilesque depths, but he was on the way there. I can only presume that his knowledge of and close connections to the Toppest of Top Docs central to serious organised crime and Bing Spear, Dafydd’s corrupt Home Office Drugs Branch Civil Service Mandarin mate, left Chapman untouchable by the law.

Thatch had won the General Election in June 1987 with a bit of help from Tony Francis dealing with as many corrupt politicians as poss, while the DSC crowd found themselves befriending Mr Bridgy Celeb. Tony Francis had qualified as a Top Doc in Cardiff at George Thomas Central, knew the Windbag from his student days and was playing all politicians off against each other. Thatch came out on top of course because Tom King had a direct line to the folk who mattered as it were… Even poor old Dr Death, a member of the Gang from his student days at Tommy’s, couldn’t triumph over Thatch.See the source image

What a collection of total idiots. Thatch and Ken Clarke won the day.

See post ‘Jennifer’s Diary’ for an account of the bizarre changes in my father’s employment from the late 1980s onward that resulted from the inexplicable interest of a Nottingham businessman – the Uncle Richard of Neil Tennant of Pet Shop Boys fame –  in purchasing a small, ailing factory in Bridgy. The trail leads to Ken Clarke and friends. On the Bridgy level, I have received info from readers that legislation was flouted that will have needed the collusion of town planners, Councillors etc in Bridgy.

Peter Morrison served as Minister of State for Employment, 13 June 1983-2 September 1985 and for much of that time, Tom King was Employment Secretary. Morrison then served as Minister of State in the DTI, then he was Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party (under Tebbs as Chairman), 10 September 1986-11 June 1987, then Minister of State at the Dept of Energy with responsibility for Oil, 11 June 1987-23 July 1990 and Thatch’s PPS, 23 July 1990-28 Nov 1990. When Thatch first became PM, Morrison was Lord Commissioner in the Treasury under Chancellor of the Exchequer Geoffrey Howe.

Re my 1989 mortgage application, I’ve been told that because the Big Boys Of The Gang were busy committing such serious crime behind the scenes, the Gang didn’t want to risk anything leading back to them. The address that the Pru wouldn’t accept on my application ie. my ‘real’ address, was in Tooting, on the territory of Wandsworth Borough Council, who were in business with St George’s/Springfield as well as Dafydd and the Gang. It seems that Wandsworth And Friends knew that they’d be called upon before too long to Share Information re my Insanity and Dangerousness. See the source imageWandsworth was Thatch’s favourite Borough led by the Tory Sir Paul Beresford, High Society dentist… If serious organised crime is on the cards, it’s important that the Biggest Mr Bigs aren’t caught. Which is probably why people have been so keen for me to name locals from Bethesda on this blog…

Can’t everyone concentrate on the real baddies?See the source image

The Pru rep who organised my mortgage application was a man called Dylan who was the mortgage advisor at Reeds Rains estate agents in Bangor. The manager of Reeds Rains lived at Llandegfan; I remember him very well, he was Gareth. His assistant whom I also got to know well was Karen. Imagine my surprise when as my life became increasingly hampered by the Gang, Karen left Reeds and Rains to begin a degree in archaeology at Bangor University. Then Karen bagged a First and stayed on for a PhD. I met Karen again when I began and then finished my PhD at Bangor. Karen was quite frosty and cold towards me which was odd because she had always been very pleasant in Reeds and Rains and I had got to know her over a period of years. Karen’s good mate in the Dept of History and Archaeology at Bangor was Dinah Evans. Dinah is married to Ron, the (now retired) crooked Gwynedd County Council solicitor who for years was the mover and shaker behind the conspiracies to imprison me. Ron was the man who when the investigations re child abuse began told everyone that they must never ever tell anyone what they had all done because it was so serious and so inexcusable…

Alwyn Jones, my Bangor solicitor who did the conveyancing for me re house purchases, was until about 1990 married to one of Ron’s colleagues, a lawyer who worked for Gwynedd CC. She was the daughter of a local policeman who busied himself in the Freemasons. See the source image

Come on the petit bourgeois criminals of Gwynedd, you’re going to have to squeal on the Mr Bigs behind you all… I’m not interested in rigged exam marks by stupid old gits in Bangor University 20 yrs ago or your bungalows and caravans, I’m intrigued as to who perceived me to be such a threat that High Court judges ended up being nobbled.

Fess up Karen!!! I want Huw Daniel, Lords Malcolm Pill and John Roch arrested,  I can’t be bothered with a craven former estate agent who wanted a part-time job teaching archaeology at Bangor, you’ve been a real chump doing the work of an international murdering paedophile gang and you won’t recover from that anyway…See the source image

‘OOH PROFESSOR JONES, I’d SO like a few hours a week teaching in the School of History, please, ooh I’ll do anything…’

Except er um oh they’ve killed Nerys you say???

Well of course we  NEVER LIKED Merfyn, ooh he was a shocker and as for that friend of his, the Philanderer… And you needn’t think that we’re impressed with him being the Guv’nor of the BBC either…

I’m out of here, I’ve heard that there’s a job going at Glyndwr University…See the source image

Along with Ken Clarke, John Moore and Trumpers in the sewer that was the DHSS, was Edwina Currie, a junior Minister, 10 September 1986-16 December 1988. Edwina Didn’t Know about Savile either. Edwina was in the throes of her extra-marital fling with John Major when she was at the DHSS. After leaving the Commons, Edwina made it public that when she was in politics it had been widely known that Peter Morrison was abusing children. Edwina was the MP for South Derbyshire, June 1983-April 1997. The Gang had an exchange scheme with abusive staff in Derbyshire and longstanding links to the ring in that county. Lord Wyn Roberts was friends with Spencer Le Marchant, Tory MP for High Peak, 1970-83, who was alleged to have been a member of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Spencer died at the age of 55 yrs on the Isle of Wight on 7 Sept 1986. Spencer was born in Edmonton, which is where Deb Everard the obnoxious technician of Bodger’s lived who had some sort of hold over Bodger and got away with a great deal. Everard was a Tory Councillor in Edmonton and the Gang utilised all possible networks. Previous posts have discussed the MPs of Edmonton who Served The Gang; Spencer’s Edmonton connections may have been long ago, but the Gang utilised absolutely everything…

Spencer’s wife Lucinda Gaye Leveson-Gower, was daughter of Brigadier General Hugh Nugent Leveson-Gower and his first wife, Avril Joy Mullens. Joy was later the fourth wife of Ernest Aldrich Simpson, himself the second husband of Wallis, Mrs Simpson. Gwynne and Dafydd could never have refused to work a dodgy deal with a shag-relative of Mrs Simpson as it were…

Spencer and Wyn were mates with Colin McEvedy, a psychiatrist who was mates with Gwynne and Dafydd… McEvedy’s daughter Allegra now runs the LEON chain of restaurants with Henry Dimbleby, son of David of the BBC. See the source imageMcEvedy advised his daughter on her restaurant business before he ‘committed suicide’ on 1 Aug 2005.See the source image

Edwina Currie was born into a Jewish family in Liverpool, went to the Liverpool Institute High School for Girls where she was Deputy Head Girl. Edwina will have known many of the big wigs who assisted Dafydd’s Gang in Liverpool and probably knew Lord Henry Cohen CHECK. Currie studied at St Anne’s College, Oxford. While there, Edwina lived next door to Mary Archer, Ann Widdecombe, and Gyles Brandreth‘s wife Michèle Brown. Subsequently, Edwina gained an MA from the LSE.

Edwina was a Councillor in Birmingham, 1975-86, when the Gang and Birmingham’s Mr Big, Robert Bluglass, were in business together. Numerous children from Birmingham were sent to children’s homes in north Wales; that and the associated criminality in Birmingham were such a big phenomenon that Birmingham Cllrs could not have missed all of it.

The St George’s staff Top Doc, who’s job was to get rid of whistleblowers and protect criminals was Nita Mitchell-Heggs MRCP MFOM ‘District Consultant Occupational Physician’. Nita was a psychiatrist who had trained at the Maudsley and knew the Gang. Nita wrote to Nigel Baldock on 26 Sept 1989 (Nita dictated her letter on 19 Sept 1989), asking Nigel if he thought that I was Dangerous. Nigel replied that he didn’t think I was. It didn’t reassure Nita and there was a telephone conversation between Nita and Baldock on 6 Oct 1989….

Graham Chapman died on 4 Oct 1989. David Kirke of the DSC asked Mr Bridgy Celeb to visit Chapman in hospital just before he died, so relations between everyone were well-cemented by Oct 1989. Chapman was ‘in a posh hospital in London’. I never found out which posh hospital, but the news of Chapman’s death will have travelled through Top Docs’ High Society like wildfire.

Chapman was mates with many with Gang connections, including of course fellow Cambridge Footlights Top Doc Jonathan Miller, who’s son William worked with my friend at the BBC before my friend was forced out of his job there in the early 1990s. Python Terry Jones was born in Colwyn Bay and spent his early years there, before moving to Surrey, where he attended the Royal Grammar School in Guildford, then St Edmund Hall, Oxford. The Royal Grammar in Guildford was THE place to send your sons if you weren’t going really posh eg. Charterhouse. Vincent Marks’s colleagues were prepared to kill to get their kids into the Royal Grammar School. Eric Idle came from Durham and his mum was a health visitor, on the turf of the Gang’s partner ring in the North East…

The connections go on and on, including Bill Oddie, who, being a keen birder, knew some of the birders in north Wales who knew me, Graeme Garden, who qualified as a Top Doc but never practised…

The colleague of Chapman’s squarely in the picture is John Cleese, from Weston-Super-Mare, who went to Clifton College and then Downing College, Cambridge. Cleese was friends with psychiatrist Robin Skynner, who along with his wife Prue were accomplices of the Gang. The Skynners were facilitating organised abuse and Robin was concealing abusive clergy in his Therapy Group for Clergy and their Spouses. Prue Skynner was such a good mate of the St George’s/Springfield lot that they named their Therapy Wing after Prue. Cleese was also mates with Dr Death; Cleese campaigned for the SDP and starred in party political broadcasts for them. D.G.E. Wood was a big fan of Dr Death and the SDP.

Readers might remember from previous posts that in Nov 1989, the month following Mitchell-Heggs’ letter to Baldock and Chapman’s death, Dr Chris Hunter, a mate of Dafydd and Tony Francis’s, held a Case Conference about me which culminated in Hunter declaring me to be Homicidal, Extremely Dangerous and in need of being sent to live with Mr Savile on Broadmoor. Hunter offered to prepare a Court Report saying this although I wasn’t facing any charges at the time. See the source imageI was arrested a few weeks later…

I knew nothing about any of this until I obtained the paperwork some four years ago. I had never heard of Chris Hunter or of most of the people who Gave Evidence at the Case Conference. Two names that I did recognise were those of Gwynedd social workers Jackie Brandt and Keith Fearns, who subsequently perjured themselves repeatedly. At the time of the Case Conference I had never met Fearns and had met Brandt at most two or three times, when she had unlawfully detained me in the psych ward at Ysbyty Gwynedd on 17 Aug 1986, which resulted in my first encounter with Dafydd…

It was Tony Francis who orchestrated the Case Conference and he began firing off letters organising it in the month before Bluglass ‘investigated’ my complaint… It was Bluglass who told Dafydd immediately after his investigation that he thought that I was a psychopath who would end in a ward for the criminally insane. Indeed, Bluglass’s mates were doing all that they could to arrange it. See ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’.

I was touched to notice that letters from Nita and her colleagues written on Official St George’s Hospital Medical School Paper loudly advertise the Patrons of St George’s: Brenda Image result for hm the queen knighting bruce forsyth imagesand HRH Duchess Of Kent. The Duchess’s husband the Duke of Kent is Brenda’s cousin. He is President of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club and presents the trophies to the Wimbledon champion and runner-up. Bodger’s house was right next to the All England Lawn Tennis Club and he had doings with them.

The Duke of Kent is famed for his high profile in Freemasonry; since 1967 the Duke has been Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England.

The Duchess of Kent aka Katharine Lucy Mary Worsley was born at Hovingham Hall, Yorkshire, daughter of Sir William Arthington Worsley, 4th Baronet, and his wife, Joyce Morgan Brunner. Worsley’s mother was the daughter of Sir John Brunner, 2nd Baronet, and granddaughter of Sir John Brunner, 1st Baronet, the founder of Brunner Mond, which later became ICI. Worsley’s godparents were her maternal uncle Sir Felix Brunner, 3rd Baronet, Major Sir Digby Lawson, 2nd Baronet, her paternal aunt Lady Colegate, and Margaret Fife of Nunnington Hall.

Katharine did not receive any formal education until the age of 10. After that, she was educated at Queen Margaret’s School, York, and at Runton Hill School in Norfolk, but obtained no formal qualifications. The Duchess worked for some time in a children’s home in York and at a nursery school in London. Katharine followed her brothers to Oxford – where they were at the University – to study at Miss Hubler’s Finishing School, 22 Merton Street, devoting much of her time to music. At Miss Hubler’s, Katharine was one of only eight pupils and was instructed by three different teachers: the Principal herself, Miss Hubler, taught French literature, painting and history; a French woman taught cookery; and a Viennese lady taught music.

I had no idea that the Patron of the World Famous St George’s Hospital Medical School was educated at a Dame School, Bodger never mentioned it. See the source image

Katharine met Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, the eldest son of Prince George, Duke of Kent, and Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark, while he was based at Catterick Camp. They married in 1961 at York Minster; the best man was Prince Michael of Kent. Princess Anne was a bridesmaid. Guests included actors Noël Coward and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. as well as members of the British, Greek, Danish, Norwegian, Yugoslavian, Romanian and Spanish royal families.

HRH and her husband Big Mason have three children: George Windsor, Earl of St Andrews (born 26 June 1962); Lady Helen Taylor (born 28 April 1964); and Lord Nicholas Windsor (born 25 July 1970).

Katharine had an abortion in 1975 due to her contracting German measles and in 1977 gave birth to a stillborn son, Patrick, a loss that caused her to become severely depressed, about which she spoke publicly. “It had the most devastating effect on me,” HRH told The Daily Telegraph in 1997. “I had no idea how devastating such a thing could be to any woman. It has made me extremely understanding of others who suffer a stillbirth.”

Bodger will have milked Katharine’s trauma for all that it was worth. Cilla gave media interviews on the subject of Her Heartbreak at the birth of her own premature baby who did not survive, when Bodger was in need of good PR. I’m not suggesting that Katharine or Cilla did not experience distress re these events; neither am I suggesting that they were not deserving of sympathy. It’s just that they knew that very serious complaints were made about St George’s, including the Dept of Obs and Gynae, that the Dept had been the centre of three high profile national scandals and that their Opening Of Hearts was needed to whitewash a dangerous, troubled hospital that would not get its act together no matter how low it sunk.

The Duchess of Kent converted to Catholicism in 1994, with the approval of Brenda. The Duchess explained in an interview on the BBC: “I do love guidelines and the Catholic Church offers you guidelines. I have always wanted that in my life. I like to know what’s expected of me. I like being told: You shall go to church on Sunday and if you don’t you’re in for it!”See the source image

Basil Hume, then Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, warned the Church against triumphalism over the Duchess’s conversion. Basil’s brother was the Top Doc John Hume, part of the Royal Docs’ team who managed to cock-up a very simple operation of Anthony Eden shortly after Eden had pissed off Brenda’s family, damaging Eden’s health permanently. Basil was a good mate of Jimmy Savile and was the man who bagged Savile membership of the Athenaeum, favoured club of Top Docs and VCs, during the throes of the Gwynne Row.

Basil’s sister Madeleine’s first husband was Sir John Charles, Chief Medical Officer – one of the many who Helped Nye Bring The NHS Into Being – and Madeleine later married Lord John Hunt of Tanworth, Cabinet Secretary, 1973-79. John Hunt’s Service To The Nation paralleled that of Robert Armstrong who served as Cabinet Secretary to Thatch, 1979-87. Armstrong served as Principal Private Secretary to the PM, 1970-75 (Grocer Heath and then Wilson) and as Permanent Secretary at the Home Office, 1977-79, when the dreadful Merlyn Rees was Home Secretary. Rees, born in south Wales but later a graduate of the LSE who then worked as a teacher in Leeds and held a Leeds Commons seat for decades, was in the thick of Gwynne and Dafydd. Merlyn Rees even found himself a Director of Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council and the North Wales Police, in 1996, when Municipal Mutual hired Cherie and Miranda’s mate Michael Beloff QC to ensure that no-one ever found out the truth behind the extent of the abuse of kids in care in north Wales. See eg. ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’See the source image

Michael Beloff’s dad Lord Max was a mate of both Ioan Bowen Rees and Thatch. The Beloffs are a big family with fingers in many of the Gang’s pies; Max’s sister Norah was a journo who worked for Reuters and then the Observer, another sister Lady Anne – who died in Dec 1991, just after Cap’n Bob went overboard – was the biochemist who married Nobel winning biochemist Sir Ernst Chain… See previous posts.

John Hunt is famous for being the first Cabinet Secretary who was a Roman Catholic. He covered up huge heaps of manure, even by Cabinet Secretary standards, because he had Harold Wilson’s wrongdoing to deal with as well as Grocer Heath’s, Sunny Jim’s and Thatch’s. Hunt’s colleague Robert Armstrong was the man who became famous for admitting that he was ‘economical with the truth’, admitted that he knew that Peter Morrison was molesting children but there were no national security issues, knew that Sir Peter Hayman was an active paedophile and also warned Thatch that giving Savile a K could result in ’embarrassment’ because of Savile’s ‘private life’.See the source image

Robert Armstrong knew about Gwynne and Dafydd’s ‘private’ lives as well. Image result for north wales hospital denbigh imagesThey abused and killed people Armstrong you dork, there was nothing private about any of it. Official portrait of Lord Armstrong of Ilminster crop 2.jpg

Armstrong has strong links to Somerset and when he bagged his peerage in Feb 1988 – I was offered the job with Vincent Marks in Feb 1988! – Armstrong took the title Lord Robert Armstrong of Illminster in Somerset. This is the man who is the problem, not the petty criminals of Bridgy or Rachub…

Can I have my money please Robert? Get out of this one now you old bastard…

Basil was a one-off in his family being a priest; the Humes were a medical family from Newcastle. Basil is now most remembered for concealing all that organised abuse in the Catholic Church. No-one’s mentioned that Basil’s powerbase lay not in the RC Church but in his family who ran the NHS in the North East and were of Royal Doc status.Spamalot poster.jpg

The Duchess of Kent with Sir Walter Campbell and Lady Campbell in Brisbane, 1992

In 1978, the Duchess was hospitalised for several weeks due to “nervous strain”. I presume that HRH was not admitted to Springfield or Denbigh. Reports by the BBC stated that the Duchess suffered from coeliac disease and Epstein–Barr virus, whose symptoms resemble those of ME. She stepped down from her role as head of the ME Society in the UK and has since ‘energetically’ worked with various charities and schools.

The Duchess of Kent decided in 2002 not to use the style “Her Royal Highness” and to reduce her Royal duties. Since then she has been informally known as Katharine Kent or Katharine, Duchess of Kent, although her formal style (e.g. in the Court Circular) remains HRH The Duchess of Kent. Despite her decision to stay away from public life, the Duchess continues to appear at major events including Kate and William’s wedding and other big Royal shindigs.

In keeping with her withdrawal from full Royal duties in 1996, the Duchess took a position as a music teacher in Wansbeck Primary School in Kingston upon Hull. She also gave piano lessons in a rented studio flat near her official residence at Kensington Palace. The Duchess of Kent has served as the President of the Royal Northern College of Music,

The Royal Northern College of Music know how to choose their big wigs, Sir Idwal Pugh served as their Chairman from 1988 to 1992. Sir Idwal was the corrupt Civil Service Mandarin who was a good pal of Gwynne and Dafydd, as well as George Thomas. Sir Idwal was born in Blaenau Ffestiniog but was brought up in south Wales. He went to Cowbridge Grammar School, as did Bodger and Sir Anthony Hopkins. Sir Idwal was able to do so much for the three turds – Gwynne, Dafydd and George – in particular during his time as Permanent Secretary at the Welsh Office, 1969-71, when George Thomas and then Peter Thomas aka Pedr Paedophilia were successively Secretary of State. After he left Pedr Paedophilia behind at the Welsh Office, Idwal served as one of the Top Dogs at the Dept of the Environment under Grocer Heath’s Secretary of State one Peter Walker, one the Gang’s City slickers.

Sir Idwal served as Parliamentary Ombudsman and Health Ombudsman, April 1976-Dec 1978. In that post, Sir Idwal entered into a ruse with Jack Ashley MP and staged a Case to show that the Mental Health Act could not be abused again after a lady who was unlawfully detained for a matter of days was Defended by Sir Idwal and received compensation and sympathy. Within minutes of Idwal stepping down from that post, Dafydd illegally incarcerated Mary Wynch for more than a year and Mary never ever received justice. Could it have been that Idwal knew that the Gang would move in on Mary the minute that he was out of the door? They had been in pursuit of her for ages, Mary had gone into hiding and was persuaded to emerge, only to be unlawfully arrested, detained in Risley and then incarcerated in Denbigh…

In Idwal’s retirement the world was still not free of Sir Idwal’s poison. He moved from Cardiff to Oxford and became a Fellow of St John’s College, Oxford, Idwal’s old alma mater, other alumni including Edward du Cann, Kingsley Amis, Philip Larkin, David Lewis Davies the Dean of the Maudsley and, in a later generation, Miranda. Idwal enjoyed a late career in the City, assuming a number of Directorships, including that of the Halifax and Standard Chartered Bank.

Sir Idwal managed to notice that I had received a mortgage offer from the Halifax which would enable F and I to move to Scotland in 1998. It’s all in the documentation that I’ve been recently perusing, Forensic Angel Jackie Ehlen noted everything. The Gang hated me but they didn’t actually want me to wave goodbye to their manor, so Sir Idwal’s influence was utilised… Read about Idwal in eg. ‘The Naked Civil Servants’.

Jackie Ehlen even noted that my friend’s baby had died and I was being ‘remarkably supportive’. Of course I was Jackie, I’d known my friend since we were 12, she was Remarkably Supportive to me when the Gang were in pursuit and paid for it by being forced out of her media career by Michael Grade and Paul Fox and then her baby died at the hands of Musgrove Park Hospital in 1999, due to the gross negligence of Top Doc Robert Fox (a relation of Sir Paul? Or a relation of Dr Liam? Who knows…).

My friend’s film script was plagiarised by Stephen Spielberg as well, beat that. It was admitted, my friend was told that Spielberg had done this to many other unknown scriptwriters but Spielberg was So Big that my friend would never win in Court against him. She was told the same re Robert Fox and the dead baby, the dead baby that caused her much more distress than Spielberg plagiarising her work. See the source image

The film received poor reviews. Had my friend been allowed to use her own script, the film would have been much better. But then I saw a really mediocre book on sale in the academic bookshop in Aberystwyth that I know was plagiarised from a proposal written by Brown and me by Profs Kirsti Bohata of Swansea University Professor Kirsti Bohataand Katie Gramich Professor Katie Gramich BA (Wales) MA (London) PhD (Alberta)of Cardiff University.See the source image

For God’s sake Swansea and Cardiff, if you’re going to plagiarise my ideas, do find someone competent to undertake the work.

The Duchess was the Director of National Foundation for Youth Music, 1999-2007. In March 2004, Katharine became Patron of national charity, Making Music aka the National Federation of Music Societies, an umbrella organisation for amateur and voluntary music groups. Katharine is among the co-founders of Future Talent, a charity that helps young children with low-income backgrounds pursue a career in music.

In August 2016, the Duchess became an ambassador for Samaritans after a volunteer at the Teesside branch contacted her; the Duchess had previously been its Royal Patron, 1971-99.

There was serious trouble with regard to the Sams in Gwynedd as a result of the Sams being run by the Gang and refusing to help psych patients. Some of us had known about this for years and although some Sams volunteers had resigned in disgust and representation was made to the highest authorities at Sams HQ, no effective action was taken and not a word appeared in any media outlets re the dysfunctional crisis-ridden Bangor Sams for years. The only hint of adverse publicity emerged in approx. 2013/14 when a Young Persons Mental Health Story In The Media mentioned that they had attended Ysbyty Gwynedd A&E when suicidal, spent 20 hours left alone in an empty room and were then discharged by an Angel who told them that the psych services would not treat them but gave them the phone number of the Sams. Who refused to offer them help on the grounds that the Sams aren’t Trained to deal with psych patients.Spamalot poster.jpg

The Duchess is a supporter of UNICEF.

The Duke and Duchess’s eldest son George Philip Nicholas Windsor, Earl of St Andrews (born 26 June 1962), was educated at Eton and Downing College, Cambridge. A former diplomat, the Earl is a Trustee of the SOS Children’s Villages UK charity and a Patron of the Association for International Cancer Research. In April 2012, the Earl also became a Trustee of the Next Century Foundation, a charity working throughout the Middle East. The Earl is a Trustee of the Global eHealth Foundation and Patron of the Welsh Sinfonia. On 30 March 2017, the Earl was installed as Chancellor of the University of Bolton.See the source image

On 9 January 1988, St Andrews married Sylvana TomaselliSylvana Palma Windsor, Countess of St Andrews (née Tomaselli, previously Jones; born 28 May 1957), a Canadian-born academic and historian. She is usually known professionally as Dr Sylvana Tomaselli. Tomaselli was born in Newfoundland and educated in Canada and England. Sylvana married Earl St Andrews on 9 January 1988.

Tomaselli is an academic based at Cambridge; she became a Fellow of St John’s College, Cambridge in 2004. She specialises in French and British political theory in the 18th century, especially the history of womanhood. See the source imageSee the source imageSee the source imageSee the source image

Tomaselli is the translator of Book II of the Seminar of Jacques Lacan, The Ego in Freud’s Theory and in the Technique of Psychoanalysis. See the source image Tomaselli is a founding member of the European Centre for the Philosophy of Gender, Siegen, Germany and is currently Director of Studies in History Part I and Social & Political Sciences at St John’s College, Cambridge and also acts as a pastoral tutor for students of Natural Sciences at St John’s College.See the source image

Tomaselli has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.

Earl St Andrews and Sylvan have three children, ie. the grandchildren of Big Mason and HRH Katharine: Edward Windsor, Lord Downpatrick, Lady Marina Windsor, and Lady Amelia Windsor.

Edward Edmund Maximilian George Windsor, Lord Downpatrick (born 2 December 1988), known professionally as Eddy Downpatrick, is the co-founder and creative director of the British fashion label FIDIR. Lord Downpatrick.jpgDiana was Downpatrick’s godmother, but she died before he got to know her well. 

Downpatrick is close to his third cousin Princess Beatrice of York and to his younger sisters, Lady Marina and Lady Amelia Windsor. His great-grandmother Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, Phil the Greek’s cousin, was the Royal family’s fashion icon in the post-war era, although I suspect that as ever with the Royals – and Kirsti Bohata and Katie Gramich – Princess Marina was seriously talked up.Beautiful Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent wearing her Bow Brooch. | Marina, Duchess of Kent's Royal Diamond Bow Brooch Prince Edward, Prince Phillip, Casa Real, Royal House, Royal Life, George Duke, Greek Royal Family, Prince Michael Of Kent, Royal Diamond

After Eton, Downpatrick enrolled at Keble College, Oxford, alma mater of Sir Peter Morrison and Keith Best. At Oxford Downpatrick was the President of the Bullingdon Club. Cameron and Boris were famously members of the Bullingdon and Call Me Dave had difficulty dealing with the bad PR when this was made public, the Bullingdon being notorious for its sole purpose of existing to enable its members to smash up bars and restaurants, members being rich enough to pay their way out of criminal prosecution. Boris has never suffered the sort of embarrassment that Call Me Dave did, probably because Boris’s other activities eclipsed his youthful adventures with the Bullingdon and he never even attempted to dissociate himself from it all.

Downpatrick wanted to join the British Army after Oxford, but had not recovered from rugby injuries.

Downpatrick seems to be a rather unlikely fashion designer. He first had the idea to launch a fashion brand while hiking in Scotland in 2009, but decided to first focus on his studies and career as a financial analyst at JP Morgan. However the pull of silk and taffeta eventually overcame the ex-Bullingdon, Rugger playing, Army aspiring, City financier Downpatrick and he left JP Morgan and began working as a fashion designer in 2016. Downpatrick launched fashion label FIDIR with Justine Dalby in 2017. The brand is a collection of outdoor-wear and accessories. Rugger Bugger Downpatrick designs handbags, wallets, sweatshirts, wash bags, and T-shirts. His designs are inspired by the Scottish Highlands.

Downpatrick’s gran’s position as the Patron of the hospital dominated by Bodger et al could have stood Downpatrick in good stead re his Fashion Label. One of Bodger’s sons was the business partner of Wayne Hemingway of Red Or Dead and Bodger sporting his Red Or Dead Doc Martens at graduation ceremonies and Top Docs’ dinners did wonders for Red Or Dead, as of course did Bodger’s friendship with Cilla and her circle. Bodger’s role in an international trafficking ring supplying meat to the Film Industry won’t have done any harm to business either. See the source image

Bodger died in Oct 2014 and I began this blog in 2016. I’ve been flattered to discover that there were people keeping tabs on me after I left my job at Bangor, was unlawfully detained in psych hospitals for many months  etc and that when word was out that I was a free woman and publishing with my former colleagues again, people knew that it was only a matter of time before I Published The Story…

I wonder if Bodger’s bereaved family needed a boost at that time what with the Don having Passed Over? Downpatrick would have already made the Big Money friendships useful to a Fashion Brand during his time at JP Morgan.

Downpatrick’s sister Lady Marina has a low profile, but his other sister Lady Amelia Sophia Theodora Mary Margaret Windsor (born 24 August 1995) is quite a megastar of a fashion model. Lady Amelia’s paternal great-great grandparents were George V and Mary of Teck. King George V’s wife Mary was the sister of Prince Alexander of Teck aka the Earl of Athlone. The Earl was Chairman of the Middlesex Hospital and Chancellor of London University; Gwynne Trained at the Middlesex and received his medical degree from London University when the Earl was Chancellor…

This sort of thing matters, not to me, but it matters to these grandiose institutions who splash the names of Royals over their headed notepaper and their PR material. It has now blown up in their faces in a very big way, yet still everyone continues to issue silly press statements of lies. What was needed was a frank admission, many years ago, that things had gone very wrong at St George’s, the Middlesex etc and steps to cleanse those institutions of criminals should have been taken. Murdering witnesses, destroying the careers of whistleblowers and appointing Royals as Patrons of yet more charidees run by these scumbags was not the answer. Neither was en masse plagiarism of other people’s work.

In 2013 Lady Amelia was presented to society at the le Bal des débutantes.

Lady Amelia is signed with Storm Model Management. In 2016 she was the cover girl for Tatler. See the source imageIn February 2017 Lady Amelia walked the runway for Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week and also walked in Dolce & Gabbana’s 2019 Spring collection. She was featured on the August 2017 cover of Vogue Japan. In 2018, Lady Amelia released a collaboration with Penelope Chilvers for a line of shoes, and modelled for the line in a video campaign in Spain. 20% of the proceeds from Lady Amelia’s shoe collection were donated to War Child,. Lady Amelia has worked for Chanel, Azzedine Alaia, and interned at BVLGARI.

Azzedine Alaia was a huge name in fashion, entered the business in the 1950s and I don’t have the capacity to discuss him extensively here. What did leap out at me was the info that Alaia was close to Naomi Campbell and she considered him to be a father figure to her from the age of 16. Naomi grew up in Streatham, on the turf of St George’s and in the vicinity of Madam Cyn’s brothel at Ambleside Avenue, Streatham. Madam Cyn’s establishment served as a networking venue for the more senior members of Dafydd’s Gang’s south London branch. St George’s consultants were found on the premises in every police raid but they were never mentioned, the world instead had a good laugh at the procession of peers, lawyers, judges, clergy etc who were always dug up in the raids on Ambleside Avenue.

The usual celebs have Worn Alaia, but one name difficult to surpass as an advert is Michelle Obama a regular Alaïa client. When First Lady, Michelle wore a formal black knit sleeveless dress with a ruffled skirt designed by Alaïa to the NATO dinner with heads of state in Strasbourg, France, on 3 April 2009. Also in 2009, Michelle Obama wore an Alaïa dress to the American Ballet Theatre‘s opening-night Spring Gala in New York. Michelle’s choice of fashion by Alaia, a Tunisian couturier, broke with the tradition of American First Ladies who had worn only the clothes of American designers to such events.

Have You Come Far?

Alaia was a close friend of US painter and film director Julian Schnabel, who in turn was one of Andy Warhol’s/Lou Reed’s crowd.

Matt Moulding (February 1972) is founder of THG. Moulding was born in Burnley, Lancashire – constituency MP Babs Castle, succeeded by Jack Straw –  and attended Fisher More High School in Colne. Moulding studied industrial economics at the University of Nottingham before going on to qualify as a chartered accountant. His father was a tarmac contractor and his mother was an antiques trader.

Matt went on to work at the Caudwell Group, where he became finance director of the distribution business, working directly with John Caudwell.

In 2004, Moulding founded The Hut Group, originally inspired from buying a CD online. He said that he recognised that selling online could be “fundamentally so much cheaper”. After investing £500,000 in the company, it took the business three years to break even, initially selling CDs online from the Channel Islands to avoid VAT. Moulding persuaded Sir Terry Leahy and Sir Stuart Rose to become early investors. Following the launch of the iPhone and rising in digital music streaming Moulding shifted his focus to selling other products online, and acquired a number of other e-commerce businesses, including IWantOneOfThose.com, Lookfantastic, MyProtein, Zavvi, and Illamasqua. In 2014, KKR bought a 20 percent of the business. As of 2016, THG operated 100 e-commerce websites. As of 2018, the company operated 166 websites. In 2018, it was announced that Moulding would be stepping down as CEO to become Executive Chairman.

Moulding lives in Northwich, and has four children. In 2015, Moulding signed a letter supporting the Conservative Party in the 2015 General Election. According to The Sunday Times Rich List in May 2019, Matt has a net worth of £600 million. In an interview Moulding gave to The Sunday Times in July 2019, he said he earns “about £1 million” a year. Matt is a supporter of the Seashell Trust.

Matt’s former business partner John David Caudwell (born 7 October 1952) is a British billionaire businessman and philanthropist who co-founded the mobile phone retailer Phones 4u. He also invests in fashion, real estate and other industries, and Chairs Caudwell Children, a children’s charity, and Caudwell LymeCo, promoting the health of Lyme disease sufferers in the UK. Caudwell is known for being the UK’s largest taxpayer, but has taken many steps to avoid paying tax.  According to the Sunday Times Rich List in 2019, Caudwell is worth £1.576 billion. On the Forbes 2016 list of the world’s billionaires, he was ranked #722 with a net worth of US$2.4 billion.

Caudwell was born in Birmingham but moved with his family as a baby to Stoke-on-Trent and was raised in Shelton, Staffordshire, and with his brother Brian attended Shelton Church of England School, and then Berry Hill High School. Caudwell become an apprentice at Michelin, and worked for several years there as an engineering foreman while gaining an HNC in mechanical engineering. Whilst working at Michelin Caudwell also ran a corner shop and started a mail order business selling clothing to motor bikers, both of which were successful.

In 1986 Caudwell became aware of the first of the then new mobile phones and discovered that there were large profit margins possible, so contacted the American handset maker Motorola to see if he could do a deal. With his brother Brian, in 1987 Caudwell registered Midland Mobile Phones as a mobile phone wholesaler, taking 26 Motorola mobiles at £1,350 each The company made a loss every month for the first two years of operations. As the company developed from a small dealership to a wholesale distributor, turnover expanded to £13 million in 1991, making it the UK’s largest independent distributor of mobile phones. Turnover increased from £13 million in 1991 to over £1 billion in 2000. In 1996 and 1997, the Caudwell Group was named the UK’s fastest-growing company for two years in succession.

Caudwell’s aggressive expansion with Phones 4u into the retail space created a professional rivalry with Charles Dunstone who built the other UK mobile phone powerhouse, Carphone Warehouse. Dunstone’s success was forged in the retail side of mobile, but the Caudwell empire was built on the success of wholesaling with 20:20 Distribution – which became one of the largest handset distributors in Europe – and Singlepoint, an airtime reseller for Vodafone. The dominance of 20:20 in the fast-growing UK mobile market paved the way for aggressive expansion into retail and accessories, with the development of Phones 4u and Dextra. By 2003, the Caudwell Group employed over 8,000 people worldwide and was selling 26 phones every minute.

In 2003 Caudwell sold Singlepoint to Vodafone for £405m (then $648m). Caudwell completed the sale of the wider business on 26 September 2006, when it was revealed that the Caudwell Group had been sold for a £1.46 billion to private equity firms Providence Equity Partners and Doughty Hanson. Caudwell made use of a tax allowance on the sale which limited his tax liability, stating had this not been available, he would have found loopholes to avoid paying anything.

Caudwell is also the owner of the South African F1 Powerboat racing team Caudwell Racing which has competed in the championship since 2012.

In 1999, Caudwell was appointed as the President of the North Staffordshire branch of the NSPCC and became the regional representative for the Full Stop campaign. Of the appointment, he says: “I was initially approached by the NSPCC to sponsor a cricket match. As is my way I got stuck in, took the whole thing over and was determined to raise as much money as I could.”

Caudwell founded the charity Caudwell Children in 2000. It became a national charity in 2006 and as of 2016 Caudwell is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Of the charity, he said: “I wanted to make sure that every penny that was raised would be put to the best use and spent on the children that needed it. My family puts about £2 million a year towards Caudwell Children. In addition I put in a lot of my time and I do a lot of networking. [But] the truth is my fortune isn’t enough to help all the children that need help.”

Caudwell Children has proved controversial because it promotes unproven and dubious health practices and has aligned itself with anti-vaccinationists. The National Autistic Society asked Caudwell’s charity to remove claims from its website that it had the society’s support.

In October 2011, John Caudwell made a “significant” six-figure donation to Middleport Pottery (one of the last working Victorian pot banks in Britain) in Stoke-on-Trent, through The Prince’s Regeneration Trust. Image result for jimmy savile and prince charles imagesIn October 2012, Caudwell was one of three principal private donors for the London’s Bomber Command Memorial Appeal.

In February 2013, Caudwell became one of the first Britons to sign up for Bill Gates and Warren BuffettsGiving Pledge, which calls on billionaires to commit at least half their wealth to charity during their lifetime. Image result for jimmy savile and prince charles images

As of July 2013, Caudwell Children has raised £27 million since its inception in 2000. As a result of his charitable work and his financial success, John Caudwell now plans to give away at least half his wealth when he dies.

Caudwell key charitable pursuit is supporting Caudwell Children; See the source imagehowever, he is also a significant and regular contributor to and supporter of a number of charitable causes including the Prince’s Regeneration Trust, Marie Curie, the Elton John AIDS Foundation, ARK (Absolute Return for Kids), Great Ormond Street Hospital and The Carers Trust, amongst others.

Caudwell still donates to the NSPCC, and undertakes regular 1,000-mile charity bike rides to raise funds for many children’s charities. On one fundraising bike ride from Lands End to John O’Groats in 2012, he raised £58,021 for Caudwell Children.See the source image

Caudwell has been awarded accolades for his philanthropic efforts. On 8 December 2012 at The Noble Gift Gala, he was presented with The Noble Gift Philanthropreneur Award by Hollywood actress Eva Longoria for his dedication to charity work.

Caudwell Properties Limited is involved in property acquisition, management and development. While much of the Caudwell portfolio is solid commercial real estate, more recently he has acquired property in Mayfair in London, the core of which is Audley Square Car Park and some surrounding buildings.

In April 2010, Caudwell donated £2,000 to Conservative MP Bill Cash‘s General Election fund. The Bill Cash who has concealed organised abuse and associated wrongdoing. See previous posts.

In 2019, Caudwell was reported to have donated £500,000 to the Conservative Party ahead of the 2019 UK General Election. John Caudwell also gave interviews stating that he and many other wealthy individuals would leave the UK if the Labour Party gained power. You have nothing to worry about John, even if the Labour Party are re-elected at any time, you’ll only have to explain that you are Connected To Bodger’s Friends The Top Docs and the Labour Party will roll over to have its tummy tickled by a donor to the Tory Party such as you. And they won’t mention the tax evasion either.See the source image

Caudwell was married to Kate McFarlane for 25 years, ending in 2001, and they had three children. He then had a relationship with violinist Jane Burgess, with whom he had a daughter. Caudwell was then in a long term relationship with Claire Johnson for 15 years, with whom he has a son. They separated in 2014.

In 2015, Caudwell claimed that 11 family members including himself, his ex-wife Kate McFarlane, their two daughters Rebekah and Rhiannon, and his son Rufus had been diagnosed with Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a tricky one but I’m fairly sure that it is not that prevalent, it’s not as if it’s the common cold where everyone in the house comes down with it.

The Hut Group sued Oliver Cookson over the sale of Myprotein in 2011. Cookson was sued for £15 million, with The Hut Group claiming overestimation affected the valuation of the company when they bought it. Cookson counter sued for £12.7 million claiming a breach of warranty and fraudulent mis-representation. The matter went to the High Court in London in October 2014 and after a month-long trial judgement was given by William Blair in November 2014 giving Oliver Cookson an overall net result win of £6.5m in damages. William Blair is the brother of that well-known billionaire philanthropist Miranda.

At the costs hearing in December 2014, the judge awarded a payment of just under £7.5 million to be made by The Hut Group to Cookson and the Trust in respect of all of the claims and counterclaims in the action and one third of the costs incurred by Mr Cookson and the Trust. Oliver Cookson and the Trust appealed the court’s decision to award The Hut Groups damages. The court of appeal dismissed the appeal on 22 March 2016.

 

After graduating from St Mary’s School, Ascot, Lady Amelia spent a gap year in India and Thailand before studying French and Italian at the University of Edinburgh. Lady Amelia was named in the Vanity Fair International Best Dressed List in 2017. She was dubbed “the most beautiful member of the royal family” by Tatler. In 2011 Lady Amelia attended the wedding of her cousin Prince William of Wales to Kate.

One thing that interests me now that I know how huge Bodger’s wrongdoing was and that it was all linked to the Fashion, Modelling and Film Industry, was the contract that St George’s Hospital had with a Cosmetics Company, who purchased the placentas of the women who delivered at St George’s. Being a medical researcher I was never squeamish about things like placentas and I also knew that for some years the more expensive skin care products had often contained placenta. Rubbing placental cells on one’s skin won’t make a bit of difference, but a la the Active Liposomes and other pseudo-biological advertising material utilised by the Beauty industry, the placenta in skin cream was a seller, although women did giggle about ‘where are the placentas coming from??’ Even I wondered that, until I worked at St George’s…

The midwives at St George’s, like me, thought that the Beauty company buying the placentas was not that mind-blowing, but I bet those midwives and the Top Docs had a greater awareness than I did that St George’s would have incurred bad publicity from certain quarters if it ever became public that the placentas from new mothers were being chucked into huge chest freezers and flogged without patients’ knowledge or consent. (If there were any Magic Ingredients in placental cells that did wonders for one’s skin, the process of freezing those placentas will have destroyed them. Cells don’t like being frozen, it seriously buggers them up.) I also suspect that whichever company purchased the placentas were paying a great deal of money for them because I can’t imagine that many hospitals would have agreed to it. It had to have been Bodger’s links with the Fashion and Beauty industry that resulted in that contract…

If any readers know which company was paying Bodger good money for other people’s placentas, do let me know. Was it L’Oreal?? I think that they were one of those who pioneered placenta in their skin care products…

Readers!! The BIGGEST problem wasn’t just Bodger playing fast and loose with other people’s placentas, it was that Bodger knew as well as I did that the placentas will have made no difference at all to anyone who was purchasing expensive skin care products on the grounds that Clinical Trials had shown that this Reduced The Appearance Of Fine Lines or whatever lies were told… It was yet another research fraud endorsed by the Top Docs. Because they were making money flogging those placentas… 

Now Then. Questionable research has ‘demonstrated’ that injecting cells from foetuses into the brains of patients with certain neurodegenerative disorders effects improvement. We were told about this research when I was at Hammersmith in 1986-87; it was taking place in I think Sweden. Malcolm Alison, our course tutor at Hammersmith, told us that there was no way that anyone in the UK would ever get such research or treatment past an ethics committee… I am fairly sure that recently such ‘treatment’ for some neurodegenerative conditions has begun in the UK. What’s the betting that the mothers of the foetuses used have no idea?

This is in no way an anti-science stance. Sadly it is this gross abuse of patients that has led to the crisis of confidence in medical science, the rise of the anti-vaxxers etc. People also need to know that it is not usually the Clever Scientists who say and do anything to pursue their work; it is the Top Doctors who are more easily able to lie to patients, offer false reassurances etc, because it is so much an everyday part of their work. Scientists are much more poorly paid than Top Docs, have far less patient contact and tend to be much more anxious if it is suggested that all they need to do is lie their arses off to the patients.

Big Mason and HRH the Duchess of Kent’s  daughter Lady Helen Marina Lucy Taylor (née Windsor), was born at Coppins, a country house in Iver, Buckinghamshire. Lady Helen was educated at Eton End School in Datchet then at St Mary’s School, Wantage, and Gordonstoun. At Gordonstoun, Lady Helen was one of 20 sixth form girls at Gordonstoun.

She was called “Melons” in the popular press.

“I was slightly chubby, it was the boys at Gordonstoun who called me that. I think there are only about two people who call me that now. The original context has long gone” …”If having a pint of Tennents in the woods at Gordonstoun could be considered wild, then I was. The trouble with me and parties is I like to be in bed at 10.30. I did used to smoke but I was always terrified of drugs.”

So the ‘boys at Gordonstoun’ took the blame for the years of crude comments about Lady Helen in the British media. Good to know that teenaged boys were to blame when Helen was well into adulthood. Where’s the Campaign then Sister Hutt?

After Lady Melons – rhymes with Lady Helen, Geddit?? well no, it doesn’t, but it does if you’re a Sun Editor –  left Gordonstoun (where she had art classes), she was desperate to go to London and earn money, starting in 1984 at Christie’s auction house in their Contemporary Department.

1984, the year of the Gwynne Row! Phew, What A Scorcher! Gwynne was much worse than the mythical boys at Gordonstoun, but that was never mentioned in the tabloids. Sam Fox turned up to open the Octagon nightclub in Bangor in 1984, the venue in which Gwynedd social workers sold the kids from Ty’r Felin children’s home for sex… See ‘Local Accessories’ and ‘Are You Local?’. Then there was Conwy’s own Paula Yates, wife of St Bob who began her career as a ‘groupie’ and model for a soft porn mag…

Did the ‘boys at Gordonstoun’ force the kids from the children’s homes in north Wales to pose for porn with animals? Or was that someone else perhaps?

Lady Helen worked with the art dealer Karsten Schubert between 1987 and 1991, behind the front desk and was later credited with discovering Rachel Whiteread and Gary Hume, but confessed in a TV interview that she had turned down representing artist Damien Hirst. As Dafydd would say ‘Interesting, interesting’. I wondered who was behind the sudden success of the YBAs, including Rachel Whiteread. Lady Helen would not have the sort of knowledge or spotting skills to ever ‘see potential’ in Rachel Whiteread et al, so who was really propelling them to fame and fortune?

For 17 years, Lady Helen was a fashion ambassador and muse to Giorgio Armani. It’ll have been those boys at Gordonstoun up to no good again.

At 19, Lady Helen met Timothy Verner Taylor (b. 8 August 1963), an art dealer and the eldest son of Commander Michael Verner Taylor, RN and Susan Geraldine Percy. They married at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on 18 July 1992. The bride wore a Catherine Walker design, inspired by the boys at Gordonstoun. Giorgio Armani provided an outfit for Lady Helen’s wedding. In 1998, Lady Helen’s husband contracted Hodgkin’s disease and the Ah the Doctors they were wonderful.

Lady Helen and her husband have four children:

  • Columbus George Donald Taylor (born 6 August 1994)
  • Cassius Edward Taylor (born 26 December 1996)
  • Eloise Olivia Katherine Taylor (born 2 March 2003)
  • Estella Olga Elizabeth Taylor (born 21 December 2004)

Lady Helen is a Patron of the CLIC Sargent children’s cancer charity and a Trustee of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. I did say that the Ah the Doctors they were wonderful. Does Lady Helen know that the Royal Marsden were part of the big CRC/ICRF funded research fraud begun in 1988 when I was working for Vincent Marks, that involved Vincent’s mates and one of Tony Francis’s friends? It was exposed in 1990 and shortly after scandal, Prof Tim McElwain, one of those involved, was found dead. ‘Suicide. The Shame and Disgrace of it all’. Everyone else who lied, cheated and conspired, went on to hold senior positions in the NHS, cancer research or academia, except for one junior researcher who changed career. A lot of people knew those involved in that huge conspiracy, so it’s just as well that Tim McElwain isn’t alive to tell all or a lot of careers could be finished. Readers can find out more from my posts ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’. Obviously so many people built their careers on the back of that fraud and by keeping schtum about who organised it that not all the guilty parties are named in my posts…

Lady Helen’s younger brother – Big Mason and HRH’s third child – is Lord Nicholas Charles Edward Jonathan Windsor (born 25 July 1970). Lord Nicholas Windsor was born at King’s College Hospital, London. He was baptised at Windsor Castle and his godparents included Carlo and Donald Coggan, at the time Archbishop of York and later Archbishop of Canterbury. Windsor was educated at Westminster Under School and then Harrow School. Lord Nicholas later attended Harris Manchester College, Oxford,

In a private ceremony in 2001 Lord Nicholas was received into the Catholic Church. On 14 July 2011, Nicholas became an Honorary Vice-President of the Friends of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, an Anglican Ordinariate within the Catholic Church. He has voiced strong views on the issue of abortion, which he has stated is, as a societal threat, “worse than al-Qaeda“.

Lord Nicholas, you might like to have a word with your mum’s pals at St George’s on that particular matter. Bodger has Passed On now, but I’ll remind you that the Bodger whom your family launched so many lifeboats to protect, as a Nice Young Doctor working in Washington DC in the mid-1960s, conducted live experiments on late gestation foetuses, whom Bodger then killed. Bodger acquired the foetuses by carrying out illegal abortions on women in late pregnancy whom he told were in need of a hysterectomy. Most of them will have known that they were pregnant, so I assume that lies were told about the baby being dead or the women being so ill that the baby was a gonner anyway, etc. Bodger then made merry with the foetuses, who, even in those days, would have had some chance of survival if they had been cared for as premature babies rather than experimental material for Bodger to kill once he’d finished with them.

None of this was a secret Lord Nicholas, Bodger published it in one of the biggest Obs and Gynae journals in the world. He then returned to the UK and became a Leading Doctor. BTW, the stated purpose for Bodger’s experiments in Washington was his interest in developing an artificial placental system. What was Bodger still banging on about when I worked for him in 1990? Er, how he was trying to develop an artificial placental system. If Bodger was, I never saw him or indeed anyone else busy doing that.

See ‘Now Then’ for full details of Bodger’s glorious moments…

Nicholas Windsor met his future wife, Paola Doimi de Lupis Frankopan Šubić Zrinski, at a party in New York City in 1999 to mark the Millennium. They married on 4 November 2006 in the Church of St Stephen of the Abyssinians in the Vatican and Paola became Lady Nicholas Windsor. Nicholas was the first member of the English Royal family to be married there since the Reformation. As required by the Royal Marriages Act 1772, the Brenda consented to the marriage. If Brenda had said no, would the boys at Gordonstoun have been blamed?

Lord and Lady Nicholas Windsor had their first child, a son, Albert Louis Philip Edward Windsor, on 22 September 2007 at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London, Bodger’s former place of employment. Albert is the eighth grandchild for the Big Mason and HRH Duchess of Kent. See the source image

Lady Nicholas gave birth to the couple’s second child, Leopold Ernest Augustus Guelph Windsor, on 8 September 2009 at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Leopold was baptised by Angelo Cardinal Comastri in St. Peter’s in the Vatican on 29 May 2010. A third son, Louis Arthur Nicholas Felix Windsor, was born 27 May 2014.See the source image

In 2011, Windsor was appointed to the Pontifical Academy for Life. He is co-signatory of the San José Articles which promote the protection of the unborn child.

In 2007, Windsor accepted the invitation to become Patron of Bromley Mind. The position is a public statement of his support for its work and he makes a practical contribution from time to time by supporting special events and fundraising campaigns. If this blog hasn’t finished off the reputation of MIND for good, Nicholas becoming Patron of the Bromley branch has.

Nicholas, Meet Bodger, at an Important Meeting, with his friend a Famous Paediatrician:

Bodger was a good friend of Brave Wendy, who was also in attendance at the Important Meeting. Brave Wendy is an abortionist who has flouted the law on abortion since her days as a med student at the London Hospital; Brave Wendy performs numerous abortions on women who have been trafficked by her friends/colleagues. Brave Wendy boasts of performing over 20 abortions on the same woman ‘if needed’.

Nicholas Windsor has worked for the Refugee Council in London, the DePaul Trust for the homeless and in a school for autistic children. He was a Visiting Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Centre in Washington DC. See the source imageNicholas is a Trustee of the Catholic National Library UK and The Right to Life Charitable Trust, an educational body whose goal is the full protection of the unborn child. Windsor is the Royal Patron – along with his wife Paola – of the Christian Heritage Centre at Stonyhurst, a charitable endeavour to make the historic collections of Stonyhurst College and the story that they tell more widely accessible to young people in the surrounding areas.

Nicholas Windsor wrote for the American journal First Things on the subject of abortion, an article which was entered into the United States Congressional Record by Congressman Chris Smith. He has written in the Telegraph and The Catholic Herald on pro-life issues.

Lady Nicholas Windsor (born Paola Louise Marica Doimi de Lupis) is the daughter of Louis, Prince Frankopan, Count Doimi de Lupis, born in Split, Croatia. Lady Nicholas’s father is a member of the old Croatian and Italian nobility and came to England after WW II when the family fortune was seized by the Yugoslavian Communist Gov’t. Prince Frankopan went to school in the UK and then to Oxford University. Prince Frankopan is a barrister, a member of Middle Temple, along with Ronnie Waterhouse, Paddy Mayhew, Greville Janner, Dame Barbara Mills and others who have been so very helpful to the Gang.See the source image

Lady Nicholas’s mother, Ingrid Detter, is a distinguished Professor Emeritus of International Law at Stockholm University.

Lady Nicholas herself attended Cambridge under her birth name of ‘Paola Louise Marica Doimi de Lupis’ (in 1989); by 1993 her entry includes the added ‘Frankopan Šubic’, while parenthetically including her original name for clarification. The announcement of Lady Nicholas’s marriage refers to her parents as ‘Don‘ and ‘Donna’. She has one sister, Christina and three brothers, Peter, Nicholas, and Lawrence.

Paola Windsor was educated at St Paul’s Girls’ School and at Wycombe Abbey, Paola read Classics at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge and took a Diplôme d’Etudes Approfondies (M.Phil. equivalent) at Paris IV, La Sorbonne, submitting a thesis entitled L’autorité de l’État (English: “The authority of the state”). See the source image

Paola: Next time that you feel inclined to write something on that subject, do send me an e mail because there are just so many people that I could introduce you to who have felt the boot of the state in the form of your family in their chops. Many of them died as a result, but I can find a few survivors as it were…

Paola, as Paola Frankopan, has written for The Tatler, where she is a contributing editor and for Vogue USA.

Is Paola a Satirist of huge proportions by any chance?

Paola has published an introduction to the history of the Sanctuary of Trsat (Trsatska Sveta Kuća in Croatian).

Paola’s brother Peter is having an even bigger laugh than Paola.

Peter Frankopan (born 22 March 1971) attended Eton College, then completed his first degree at Jesus College, Cambridge before getting his D.Phil at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. Peter is a senior research fellow at Worcester College, Oxford and Director of the Oxford Centre for Byzantine Research.

In 2002, Frankopan and his wife Jessica opened Crowley Manor, a boutique hotel and spa on a historic estate in the Cotswolds. They have since expanded their hotel chain, called ‘A Curious Group of Hotels’, to include the Portobello Hotel in London, Canal House in Amsterdam and L’Hotel Paris in Paris. The restaurant in L’Hotel Paris has been awarded a Michelin star.

Peter has served as President of the Croatian Cricket Federation and has played for the Croatian national team.

Peter and his wife Jessica, daughter of Tim Sainsbury, have four children and live in Oxford. Together, they oversee a £14 million trust funded by Jessica’s family’s supermarket fortune.

Tim Sainsbury is the youngest son of Lord Sainsbury and his wife Doreen. His elder brothers are Lord Sainsbury of Preston Candover, a former Chairman of Sainsbury’s, and the late Simon Sainsbury. Lord Sainsbury of Turville, the former Labour Minister for Science, is a cousin. Tim’s great-grandparents, John James Sainsbury and Mary Ann Staples, established a grocer’s at 173 Drury Lane in 1869 which became the British supermarket chain Sainsbury’s.

Tim Sainsbury was Conservative MP for Hove, 1973-97 and served as Thatch’s junior Minister in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, 24 July 1989-23 July 1990, (under Foreign Secretaries John Major and then Douglas Hurd) and held a number of Ministerial posts in Major’s Gov’t, including Minister of State for Trade (1990–92) and Minister for Industry (1992–94). Tim was President of the Hove Conservative Association from 1998 until 2002 and was President of the Conservative Friends of Israel from 1997 until 2005. Tim is a Patron of the Tory Reform Group.  In 2019 Tim announced his intention to vote Liberal Democrat at the General Election.

Sainsbury and his two brothers funded an extension to the National Gallery at a cost of around £50 million, which opened in 1991 as the Sainsbury Wing. Tim was Chairman of the Somerset House Trust, 1997-2002 and was President of a £25m campaign for Worcester College, Oxford. He was appointed as a Trustee of the Victoria & Albert Museum on 17 December 2003 and was re-appointed on 17 December 2007. Tim Sainsbury is Chairman of the V&A’s International Council, which aims to secure major donations for the FuturePlan.

Tim has two daughters, Camilla (born 1962) and Jessica (born 1970), and two sons, James (born 1962) and Alexander (born 1968). Camilla was married until late 2015 to Shaun Woodward the MP who defected from the Tories to Labour, under circumstances that favoured the Gang, as discussed in previous posts.

Tim Sainsbury joined Sainsbury’s in 1956. In 1959 he became Deputy to Fred Salisbury (the first non-Sainsbury Director of the company). Tim was appointed Director of Estates, Architects and Engineers in 1962. When the Company listed on the London Stock Exchange on 12 July 1973, as J Sainsbury plc, his family at the time kept control with an 85% stake. Whilst his cousin, David Sainsbury, inherited his father Robert Sainsbury‘s entire 18% shareholding, Tim Sainsbury had to split his father Alan Sainsbury’s 18% stake with his brothers JD Sainsbury and Simon Sainsbury, and so they held 6% each. It is believed that Sir Robert Sainsbury gave David Sainsbury his entire shareholding (rather than split it between David and his three daughters) so that David would have more votes at the table. David only joined Sainsbury’s Personnel Department when he did not get the grades needed to pursue his ambition to become a scientist.

Tim Sainsbury stepped down from the Board in 1983 to further pursue his career in politics. In 1992 his brother JD Sainsbury retired and was succeeded as Chairman and Chief Executive by his cousin, David Sainsbury. Tesco overtook Sainsbury’s to become the UK’s largest supermarket chain in 1995. As a result, it is believed that JD Sainsbury asked Tim to re-join Sainsbury’s as a Non-Executive Director in 1995 to support David. David stepped down in 1998 to pursue a career in politics and in 1999, Tim stepped down as Non-Executive Director, meaning no member of the Sainsbury family now works for the Company. At the time Tim vowed “to remain a major and committed shareholder.” On 13 January 2006, the company was notified that Sir Timothy Sainsbury no longer has a notifiable interest in the company’s issued share capital, such interest now being below 3%. His wife, who had held the other half of his 6% stake, dropped her interest in Sainsbury’s below 3% the previous week.

When Sainsbury’s was the target for takeover bids during 2007, it is believed that Tim was unwilling to sell his remaining stake at any price, wanting to keep the company independent, as opposed to David Sainsbury, who indicated he was willing to let the Sainsbury’s Board open its books for due diligence if someone offered him a price of 600 pence per share or more. As of August 2009, Tim Sainsbury together with his wife were still thought to own just under 3% of the retailer. The Sainsbury family as a whole control approximately 15% of Sainsbury’s.

In the Sunday Times Rich List 2008 Tim’s family fortune was estimated at £1.3 billion.

Lord David Sainsbury of Turville stars in previous posts, which provide substantial details as to Lord David’s acquiring a peerage and then a job as Science Minister in the New Labour Gov’t after he donated an enormous sum to the Labour Party; how Lord David established the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health that curiously promoted New Labour’s policies and was shamelessly plugged throughout NVQ training material for mental health courses in the years around the millennium (students were told repeatedly in the course literature that they could acquire information and resources from the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health); how Lord David closed the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health and began funding whole wings of research institutes carrying out ‘independent’ research into neuroscience/neuropsychology; and how Lord Sainsbury was appointed Chancellor of Cambridge University after giving a massive bung to that institution. UK Health/Science Policy – as ordered by David Sainsbury!

In the heyday of Thatch’s Gov’t, a radio phone in to Cecil Parkinson included a call from a young woman who quoted a few figures re Tim Sainsbury’s family fortune and asked Cecil how someone from such a background could ever understand the Ordinary Voter. Cecil pompoused away about how brilliant it was that Tim Sainsbury who would not need to work at all if he didn’t want to was prepared to Serve on a miniscule Ministerial salary, such was Tim’s commitment to the Man In The Street.

I would not suggest that a rich person could never be an effective, genuine MP/Minister or that a rich person would never want to serve in public life for noble reasons. However evidence re the Sainsbury family per se suggests that there was nothing selfless about their Desire To Serve; indeed they shamelessly purchased their political careers and in the case of David, bankrolled policy that they promoted as Ministers when they had no understanding or knowledge of the field at all. If David had worked at bagging the credentials for a career in science and learned some science, he would know that the nonsense promoted by his Centres and Institutions will never work as Health Policy.

 

Ken Clarke stood down as Health Secretary on 2 Nov 1990 and was appointed as Secretary of State for Education and Science.

With regard to my adventures as a patient at Springfield after I had been effectively hounded out of St George’s once Bodger and the BMA had colluded with Howe, Heseltine, Hurd et al and deposed Thatch, and I had been arrested shortly after on serious charges as the Drs Francis perjured themselves on a scale as never before, I was admitted to Springfield on 16 Jan 1991, after receiving a home visit from Robin Jacobson, a Springfield consultant, on 15 Jan 1991. I was discharged from Springfield on 7 Feb 1991.

One thing that I remember Jacobson telling me during that visit after I told him of the rampant abuse and criminality in north Wales was that Springfield had a reputation for excellence and there was even an office in Springfield with a patients’ right lawyer. I have mentioned this before on the blog, but I’ll flag it up again here: Springfield was SO BAD that if anyone is serious about investigating the Westminster Paedophile Ring or indeed any serious crime re organised abuse and Class A drugs in south London stemming from that time, they need to trace the lawyers staffing that ‘lawyers office’ and ask them how they managed not to raise the alarm re what was happening.

I might have stated in previous posts that I was admitted to Daffodil Ward in Springfield; it was actually Crocus Ward, I’ve re-checked the paperwork…

Atkinson Morley/Springfield Consultant Psychiatrist Tom Burns had ‘assessed’ me six months before this admission, after Nita Mitchell-Heggs, the St George’s Occ Health Physician, insisted that I see the ‘loveliest man that I know’. Tom’s manner was very different to the usual unpleasant not very bright psychiatrist and we had a nice chat. As I was telling him about Gwynne, Dafydd et al, imagine my surprise when Tom interrupted me and snapped angrily ‘You think that I don’t believe you? You think that I’m naïve don’t you? Well I do believe you, I’m not naïve and I know that this sort of thing is going on.’ Tom went on to tell me that psychiatry attracts ‘disturbed people’ and it was causing big problems. Tom reported back to Nita that I wasn’t psychotic but probably had a Paranoid Personality Disorder.

In Dec 1990, when the Drs Francis had me arrested, Tom told Nita that he didn’t think that he had anything to offer when she asked him if he’d help out. After being arrested on the basis of the lies to the police – backed up by the MDU – told by the Drs Francis in Dec 1990, just after Thatch resigned and Major became PM, my first Court appearance in north Wales after being charged with threatening to kill and threatening to commit criminal damage was scheduled for 29 Jan 1991. I’ve only just noticed from my documents that Robin Jacobson was ringing Alwyn Jones my solicitor, who told Jacobson that because I was in hospital I wouldn’t need to attend the Court hearing. Because so many lies had been told, the charges against me were changing virtually every day and Jacobson noted this on the records. Not that Jacobson acknowledged that the charges were changing because no-one could produce the evidence of my crimes. Jacobson documented that the Drs Francis were so terrified of me that they didn’t dare substantiate their allegations.See the source image

So great was their fear that the Drs Francis just made up another load of cobblers that was then faithfully documented by the MDU, Top Docs, etc although those allegations couldn’t be substantiated either…

Tom Burns remained silent throughout it all.Image result for professor tom burns images

All serious charges disappeared once I had been forced out of my job at St George’s, refused all care and support and I’d returned to live in north Wales full time. Then some more charges appeared and in April 1991 I was back in London for my guest appearance at the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand!See the source image

Tom remained silent.Image result for professor tom burns images

As soon as I arrived at Springfield, Jacobson’s Senior Registrar Ruth White told me that I would not be staying at Springfield because I was a member of staff at St George’s, thus I would be transferred to the Maudsley. Ruth White was a close friend of a Top Doc in Bodger’s team whom I knew well. That Top Doc was one of the saner Docs who used to hint darkly to me that Bodger was involved in terrible things and was not the cuddly old bloke whom many people believed him to be. There were many ways in which this Top Doc would have known about the Gang; as a student she had been involved with the Anti-Nazi League and the Anti-Apartheid Movement and she was also training as an analyst. I have always presumed that she was one of the few sane people who was doing her best amidst the madness; I never ever saw her conducting herself in the way that some of her colleagues did and she was very much more level headed than most of them. She had only ever mentioned Ruth White in passing, but White was rude and hostile to me from our first meeting. I wondered if White feared that I had sensitive info about her but when I subsequently  acquired documentation and read about the cosy phone calls that White and Jacobson had held with Dafydd, Tony Francis and even Lucille Hughes before any Springfield staff had even met me, White’s unpleasantness became understandable. Springfield was in business with the Gang anyway…Image result for professor tom burns images

Angela Pumfrey, Robin Jacobson’s secretary, pp’d letters from Jacobson to D.G.E. Wood on 16 Jan 1991, although I had not been in contact with Wood for years. Angela also pp’d a letter from Jacobson to Lucille Hughes on 16 Jan 1991. Tony Francis had at some point recommended during a phone conversation to people at Springfield that if Jacobson needed evidence of my Dangerousness, he should contact Lucille. I have never met Lucille and had only ever spoken to her once in the late 1980s. I rang her and told her that I had evidence that she and Dafydd were involved with very serious crime. Lucille cackled down the phone and said ‘Crime?? Well you’d better go to the police then’ and hung up on me.

Anyone for a Top Secret Case Conference held by Dr Chris Hunter?

When the Dean of St George’s William Asscher was widowed, elderly and resident in the Vale of Glamorgan on a permanent basis, he acquired a New Lady In His Life, a long-standing family friend, Zylvia Pumfrey. See ‘A Charming Uplifting Sound…’ and previous posts. I presume that Zylvia was a relation of Angela.

I hung around Springfield for days with staff refusing to speak to me on the grounds that ‘You’re going to the Maudsley’. The Top Doc from the Maudsley eventually turned up to ‘assess’ me and explained that he had hoped to have visited me days ago but there had been a suicide on the Maudsley ward where I was due to be transferred and so the ward had been closed for the week.

The Maudsley Top Doc in question was Paul Bowden and he arrived to interview me with ‘his’ charge nurse. Bowden was OK to talk to, he wasn’t a Ruth White and at the end of the interview he told me that he didn’t think that I should be transferred to the Maudsley because I had now been at Springfield for a week, I had made friends with other patients and he thought that was important and positive.

Yet that was not what Paul Bowden told his colleagues at Springfield. There is no copy of any letter or paperwork written by Bowden in my files, but Alice Levinson wrote down what Bowden had said (Alice’s notes read as though she had transcribed a letter or a dictation from Bowden) in her notes about me…

All of these records were withheld from me until 2005, when my lawyer took Keith Thomson, the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust, to the High Court in Cardiff where he was threatened with imprisonment for unlawfully withholding my medical records. However, a great many other people had been given access to my medical records and had even received copies/extracts. 

Bowden declared me to be Dangerous and in possession of a ‘Severe Paranoid Personality Disorder possibly at times Borderline’. I work by ‘splitting and projection’, no treatment had ever made a jot of difference to me – not even my stay in Dafydd’s Therapeutic Community that Dafydd told Jacobson all about – and no treatment would ever work on me. Furthermore, if I was given Therapy I would use that Therapy to cause even more damage to the world. Bowden stated that under no circumstances was I to be sectioned under the Mental Health Act no matter what happened to me or anyone else, although there was of course a danger that I would carry out a murderous attack on a third party at any point.See the source image

Bowden also told the Springfield contingent that St George’s had admitted that my confidence had been breached in so far as when I was in Springfield someone from St George’s had rung my relatives in Somerset without my knowledge ‘to see if they knew what was going on’. Bowden had told the Springfield contingent that if I complained about this breach of confidence I would lose my job. See the source imageI don’t remember complaining about it, so many unacceptable things had happened by then that it seemed to be pointless complaining about anything, but at that time, one of the Bridgy contingent snapped at me that Brown had rung them telling them that I had attempted suicide. I hadn’t but I could barely believe that Brown would ever have rung them without telling me; Brown absolutely assured me that he had not rung them and never would. There was then a row with one of the Bridgy contingent yelling at me that Brown was lying, it was definitely him who had rung.

After I began this blog I was told that the call was something to do with the security services; they’d been bugging us for years and it is alleged that a fake recording/impersonation of Brown was made, assembled from spliced previous recordings. That incident nearly caused a serious rift between Brown and me, which I presume was the rationale, Brown being the one person who always supported me in the face of the Gang and supported me as crap rained down on my head at St George’s. Brown and I also suspect that the call was preparing the ground for my body to be found thus reducing the possibility of questions being asked. Shortly after the call I appeared in the press in south London and north Wales as the star of a news story about a Scientist at St George’s Harassing Top Docs, See the source imagealthough by the time that the story was published I’d been forced out of my job anyway.

Tom still didn’t say a word even with me making headlines.Image result for professor tom burns images

Brown and I suspect that had I been found dead, it would have been against a background beloved of people like Paul Bowden and Bluglass. Mad but clever person who Could Not Be Helped by the Caring Top Docs conducts a Terrible Vendetta against the Caring Top Docs, commits crimes, is sacked from a Good Job that she had bagged as a result of her Cunning Ways and then kills herself…See the source image

Perhaps Sir Robert Francis QC, who for some years now has been the British NHS Patients’ Champ, would like to explain these events in his capacity as the MDU barrister who starred in that particular case against me. See the source imageSee the source imageMy documents demonstrate that the MDU’s own solicitor Ann Ball told the Drs Francis that they did not have the evidence to support their claims and advised them to drop the case against me. The MDU were also well aware that I was demonstrating serious criminality on everyone’s part but mine. I also had a long phone conversation (approx. 30 mins or more) in which I told Ann pretty much everything re the abuse of patients that I had witnessed in north Wales. Ann told me that the Drs Francis knew nothing about any of my ‘allegations’. Sadie wrote Ann a letter in reply telling Ann that they were Experienced Top Docs who knew a Dangerous Nutter when they saw one. See the source imageThe MDU then agreed to go ahead with the case although they had still not been presented with the evidence of my crimes…Image result for professor tom burns images

The latest perusal of my documents shows that Ann Ball was based at the MDU’s Manchester office. Despite being based in Manchester, Ann did manage to make it down to the case in April 1991 at the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand in person.

Paul Bowden’s comments are very typical of psychs who claim to be dealing with Dangerous Manipulative Patients. Bowden was a famous forensic psych who worked on a lot of high profile cases, including that of serial killer Dennis Nilsen. Nilsen died in prison on 12 May 2018. Paul Bowden died in 2014, when the Macur Review was on the way.

I have a mass of documentary evidence demonstrating that Bowden was a liar who knowingly colluded with Top Docs and others whom he knew were guilty of very, very serious offences. Bowden’s motives were to demonise and discredit me and to ensure that I received no healthcare or support whatever although he knew that I would shortly be homeless and jobless. I don’t think that Bowden believed one word of what he was saying. My concern is that Bowden will have done this to other people who unlike me are not in a position to expose this chain of gangsters who had the entire mental health system rigged Image result for professor tom burns imagesto silence witnesses to serious crime perpetrated by their mates.

Now Then. I have looked again and again to ensure that I’ve got this right, but Alice Levinson’s detailed notes written under the sub-heading ‘Dr Bowden’s Opinion’ are dated 8/1/91. I was not admitted to Springfield until 16 Jan 1991. Jacobson did not pay me the domiciliary visit until 15 Jan 1991. I might even have still been in Gwynedd when Alice faithfully recorded Dr Bowden’s opinion on 8 Jan 1991. From what I remember, I was arrested in London by the Burnside and Ted Roach style detectives, detained in Streatham Police Station for what I am sure was an unlawful length of time, driven to north Wales, interviewed by police, appeared before Caernarfon Magistrates Court and then bailed to live at my shared house in Streatham, signing on bail daily at a police station in Tooting, which according to Alice’s notes was Earlsfield Police Station.

Earlsfield Police Station is located in Garrett Lane, which at least when I lived in the area, had the reputation of being the least desirable part of Tooting. I have discussed in previous posts how a Top Doc at St George’s discussed one of the patients ‘from a really scummy family in Garrett Lane’. The Really Scummy Police at Earlsfield Station must have been either as corrupt as buggery or really frightened of the serious organised crime underway in the World Leading Teaching Hospital just down the road.Image result for lavender hill mob images

I signed on bail with the Lavender Hill Mob for just a few days as Alwyn Jones, my solicitor from Bangor, tried to get me a bed in Springfield. I eventually went to the GP’s surgery with which I was registered on 14 Jan 1991 and the GP arranged the home visit from Jacobson. I’ll return to the GP concerned later in this post. Alwyn had tried to secure me a bed in Springfield before my appearance at Caernarfon Magistrates Court, but Springfield stated that there was no bed available.

I was nowhere near Alice until 16 Jan 1991 or Paul Bowden until a number of days after the 16 Jan 1991, particularly with the Maudsley suicide holding everything up. See the source image

So how DID Paul give that opinion in time for Alice to document it on my medical records dated 8/1/91? Even if Alice had meant 18/1/91 – which I think is probably what Alice meant to write, because Alice’s notes re Bowden’s opinion appear after her notes about me on admission and the ‘Plan’ dictated to Alice by Jacobson re my brief presumed time at Springfield before transfer to the Maudsley – Paul had proffered some very firm opinions about me before he had met me and before anyone at Springfield had any chance to meaningfully assess me either.See the source image

Paul Bowden

The 2014 Grauniad obituary for Paul Bowden, written by his friend and colleague of many years, Alec Buchanan, Honorary Prof of Forensic Psychiatry at the Maudsley, was informative but terrifying. Alec’s day job, or at least it was in 2011, is Professor, Division of Law and Psychiatry, Yale University Department of Psychiatry, New Haven, CT, USA. Alec and his colleague Michael A. Norko, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Division of Law and Psychiatry, Yale University Department of Psychiatry, New Haven, CT, USA, wrote this definitive textbook, published July 2011: The Psychiatric Report

The written report is central to the practice of psychiatry in legal settings. It is required of mental health professionals acting as expert witnesses in criminal cases, civil litigation situations, child custody proceedings and risk assessments. This book provides a theoretical background to psychiatric writing for the law and a practical guide to the preparation of the report. The first section addresses practical and ethical concerns, including the conduct of the forensic psychiatric evaluation, conflicts of interest, record keeping and confidentiality. The second section contains practical and detailed advice on preparing various types of report, including reports for use in criminal and civil litigation, civil commitment hearings and child custody proceedings. A final section covers special issues arising during report preparation including the use of psychological tests and the detection of malingering. This is an essential guide for anyone required to write a psychiatric report.

Other offerings from Bowden’s friend and mentor Alec include:By Alec Buchanan - Care of the Mentally Disordered Offender in the Community: 1st (First) EditionPsychiatric Aspects of Justification, Excuse and Mitigation in Anglo-American Criminal Law (Forensic Focus)Care of the Mentally Disordered Offender in the CommunityCompliance With Treatment In Schizophrenia (Maudsley Series Book 37)

Readers can while away a happy hour or so looking up other contributions to the World Of Psychiatry made by Alec and his colleagues and co-authors, who all learnt at the knee of Experts and Shared Best Practice. Paul Bowden

On what date did you assess that patient did you say Paul? Was that before or after the Suicide of your other patient? Or was it before the patient who was Assessed by you had been assessed by ANYONE other than the personal friends of a man whom the referring psychiatrist admits is sexually abusing his patients or indeed the abusing psychiatrist himself?See the source image

See previous posts for details of Buchanan’s career and others in his and Bowden’s circle…

Here’s Alec’s memories (presumably not false memories or repressed ones!) of Paul the Clairvoyant:

The career of my friend and colleague Paul Bowden, a forensic psychiatrist at the Bethlem Royal and Maudsley hospitals in London, was remarkable for its breadth and quality. The criminal courts made extensive use of his expertise, often in high-profile trials. His experience, interests and personality helped make Paul, who has died aged 73, an effective teacher who shaped the skills and outlook of many of the senior figures within British forensic psychiatry. He was born in the Potteries, in Stoke-on-Trent. His father, Sidney, was the manager of a chemical works, his mother, Winifred (nee Sammons) a teacher. At St Joseph’s college in Stoke, Paul led the school orchestra; music, in most of its forms, remained important to him throughout his life. In 1965 he graduated in medicine from Guy’s hospital, and then trained in psychiatry at the Maudsley. He took up his first consultant post in 1977 at St George’s hospital, London, before moving back to the Bethlem Royal and Maudsley where he was to work until his retirement in 1999. Paul’s clinical responsibilities included an out-patient clinic, in-patient wards, adolescent offenders at Stamford Lodge children’s home and adults at Brixton prison. He trained doctors of all grades most of whom, like me, were learning the care of mentally disordered offenders. He was a perceptive teacher who asked the right questions and encouraged us to learn while making our own decisions. As well as being clinically extremely astute, Paul was funny and could be waspish. He made sure he was there during difficult moments, when people had to hear things they did not want to hear, or told to do things they did not want to do. With Robert Bluglass, he edited the UK’s first major text on his subject, Principles and Practice of Forensic Psychiatry (1990). Paul wrote six of the 153 chapters himself. The Journal of Forensic Psychiatry, which he founded, appeared in the same year; he ran the journal pretty much singlehandedly before I became editor in 1996. When I was his assistant, Paul would periodically put his head round the door and tell me I was doing nothing, but more colourfully. This was not true, irritated me and probably made me try harder. He was a stimulating and provocative source of original ideas.

Paul spent his retirement with Judith, his second wife, collecting books – modern first editions mostly – art and Staffordshire china. Judith, whom he married in 1997, survives him; as do the three children, Elizabeth, Thomas and Emily, of his first marriage, to Ann, which ended in divorce; and four grandchildren.See the source image

 

Briefly: Bowden spent his entire life in the bosom of the Gang and their mates. Stoke-on-Trent was on the patch of the big Staffs ring; all local Councillors and politicians concealed that ring, the highest profile MP doing that being Jack Ashley, the dad of Jackie Ashley the political journo who is married to Andrew Marr. Another colluder is Baroness Llinos Golding, who was the Labour MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffs, July 1986-May 2001. The Baroness is qualified as a radiographer, worked in the NHS and is currently the Patron of the Society of Radiographers. The serious problems in the NHS in Staffs are a direct result of the ring in the region; Staffs NHS was in terrible trouble as long ago as when John Major was PM, but discussion of it in Parliament was squashed and calls for investigations went unheeded. Official portrait of Baroness Golding crop 2.jpg The Baroness inherited the seat from her husband John Golding, who was elected as the Labour MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme in 1969. John was educated at Chester City Grammar School, Keele University and the LSE. After some time working in the Civil Service John Golding took up a research job with the Post Office Engineering Union. Golding served in the Govts of Harold Wilson and Jim Callaghan, as PPS to Eric Varley as Minister of Technology, a Labour Whip in opposition, and Minister for Employment. Eric Varley, along with his close friend – they were closer than anyone realised – Gerald Kaufperson, kept the lid on the Westminster Paedophile Ring/Gwynne/Dafydd. John Golding claimed to hate Wedgie Benn, but Eric Varley accepted a job as Chairman of Coalite plc in 1983 in order to resign his Chesterfield (Derbyshire seat) to make way for Wedgie Benn. Wedgie Benn had lost his Bristol seat and was in need of a safe Labour seat but he was needed in Derbyshire because the Gang were in pursuit of Brown and me by then. The link – or one of the links – is Penelope Piercy, daughter of Lord Gnome, my distant relative by marriage. Penelope was a Civil Service Mandarin who was Wedgie Benn’s right hand woman when Wedgie Benn was Minister of Technology in 1968. Penelope bagged a CBE in the same year. Lord Gnome was definitely colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and I suspect that he may have been rather more than colluding with it… Many female members of Lord Gnome’s family went to St Paul’s School for Girls and then Oxford, usually Somerville.

John Golding was a key figure in opposing the entryist Militant group, and especially in mobilising moderate trades union leaders to exercise their block votes to achieve this end. After he died, his writings were published under the title Hammer of the Left: My Part in Defeating the Labour Left by John Golding and Paul Farrelly, who succeeded Baroness Llinos as the MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme. In 1986 John Golding left Parliament to take up the post of General Secretary of the National Communications Union. He held this post until 1988. Golding had served as a member of the Council of the TUC. John Golding died on 20 Jan 1999. John Golding won the seat when his predecessor Stephen Swingler died unexpectedly in office on 15 Feb 1969. Swingler was one of Richard Crossman’s circle and Crossman’s diaries record the shock of Swingler’s sudden death. Swingler served in the DHSS as a Minister of State for Social Services under Crossman when the entire team were in cahoots with Gwynne and Dafydd. Swingler’s death meant that Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate David Ennals took over his Ministerial job.

Swingler was the son of Rev. H. Swingler, and was educated at Stowe and New College, Oxford, where he graduated in 1936. Like so many New College grads – including Crossman and Trumpers’ husband Barker – Swingler was recruited by the security services at Oxford. Before entering politics Swingler was a lecturer for the WEA. In the Labour landslide at the 1945 General Election, Swingler was elected as MP for the previously Conservative-held seat of Stafford. When the constituency was abolished at the 1950 General Election, Swingler contested the new Stafford and Stone seat, but was defeated by Hugh Fraser. At the 1951 General Election Swingler was returned as MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme. Hugh Fraser was Lady Antonia’s first husband, the one whom she dumped for Swearing Harold Pinter. Lady Antonia was the daughter of Lord Longford, most of who’s extended family were concealing Gwynne, Dafydd et al, that’s what the prison visiting and Christian forgiveness was all about. Lady Antonia was also a good mate of Bertrand Russell’s son, Earl Conrad Russell. Lady Antonia lives near Bodger’s mate Cathy Wilson, who was supposed to be supervising my PhD at St George’s. Cathy will know Lady Antonia; Cathy wasn’t just part of High Fuckwitted Society, she considered herself literary, believed that she was a leftie, was loaded and a terrible snob. She won’t have been able to resist Lady Antonia’s company.

Swingler played an interesting but minor part in the serial killer Top Doc John Bodkin Adams affair. On 8 November 1956, the Attorney-General Reginald Manningham-Buller handed the Scotland Yard report into Adams’ activities to Dr McRae, Secretary of the BMA. The prosecution’s most valuable document was then copied and passed to Adams’ defence Counsel. After a tip-off from a Daily Mail journalist, on 28 November Swingler (in conjunction with MP Hugh Delargy) addressed a question to the Attorney-General to be answered in the Commons on 3 December regarding Manningham-Buller’s recent contacts with the GMC. Manningham-Buller was absent on the day in question but gave a written reply stating he had “had no communications with the General Medical Council within the last six months.” M-B avoided referring to the BMA directly (despite it being named in Delargy’s question) and therefore avoided lying, though it could be argued, deliberately misled the House.

Adams was eventually acquitted of the murder of Edith Alice Morrell but was suspected by Home Office pathologist Francis Camps of killing 163 patients. Harriet Harman’s dad Harley Street Top Doc John B. Harman – who knew Gwynne and Dafydd and was the brother of Lord Longford’s wife Elizabeth – gave evidence as an Expert in defence of Adams, although Harman had no personal experience of the area in which he gave evidence. Harman was an old boy of Oundle School… When Harman retired in 1972, he became the President of the MDU. Harman was the son of two Harley Street Top Docs himself.

Harman was in the same class at Oundle as Sir Cyril Clarke, the Liverpool Medical School Top Doc who knew Dafydd. In his spare time, Clarke studied moth genetics and like all Top Docs, Clarke was such a polymathic genius that he Broke New Ground with those moth genetics. Liverpool University have proudly collected Clarke’s papers but have not explained why there are no records at all of Clarke’s data or accounts of the experimental work that led to his Breakthroughs. Clarke worked with others in the field who were exposed as lying about their research results in a big way; some of the lies have become famous in zoology as research fraud and other researchers’ work is now accepted as sounder than that of Clarke’s colleagues. Cyril Clarke knew Gavin Gatehouse, the UCNW zoologist who was my friend Anne’s PhD supervisor when she was killed by the Gang in April 1986. Anne became Gavin’s PhD student after Gavin spontaneously offered her the PhD studentship on noctuid moths; Anne had not applied for the studentship or even asked Gavin if she could complete a PhD with him. I have been told that this was a ruse to keep Anne in Bangor while the Gang worked out what to do with my friends and I, and that Cyril Clarke was something to do with the PhD studentship that Gavin bagged from NERC. See ‘A Trail Of Blood’.

Stephen Swingler was married in 1936 to Anne (née Lily), daughter of John Matthews, of Mitcham, formerly of Newcastle upon Tyne. Mitcham is in the neighbouring Borough to Wandsworth, near to St George’s and Springfield. The Swinglers had four children: Robin, Nicholas, Clare and Oliver. Anne Swingler worked in the Labour Research Department and later volunteered for Shelter Housing Aid. Both of those organisations were of Richard Crossman’s/Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law’s and their friends’ circle…

Baroness Llinos was a safe pair of hands for the Newcastle-under-Lyme seat. Not only was she the wife of John Golding, but her dad was The Right Honourable Onesimus Edwards (5 April 1897-3 May 1968), aka Ness Edwards. Ness Edwards was born in Abertillery, Monmouthshire. He started work at the Penybont colliery on 5 April 1910, his 13th birthday. By the age of 17 Ness was working at the Arriel Griffin colliery filling the role of Chairman of the local miners lodge. A trade unionist, Ness was imprisoned in 1917 as a conscientious objector. Ness was elected  as MP for Caerphilly at a by-election in 1939 and remained in the seat until his death in 1968. At the beginning of World War II Edwards was instrumental in helping Czech miners escape the Sudetenland. An associate of Aneurin Bevan and Jim Griffiths, Edwards was Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour and National Service, 1945-50 and Postmaster General, 1950-51. In 1925 Ness Edwards married Elina Victoria Williams, one of six children of Richard Williams, a county court bailiff, and his wife Anne, of Bridgend. Ness Edwards died at Caerphilly Miners’ Hospital on 3 May 1968, aged 71. 

Ness’s mates Nye and Jim Griffiths were instrumental in not just protecting Dafydd and Gwynne but positively encouraging them… Griffiths, the MP for Llanelli, was the first Secretary of State at the Welsh Office and seeded the rot there…

The MPs for Stafford have also long since kept schtum about the organised abuse in Staffordshire, including Tory Bill Cash. See previous posts…

The ring in Staffs erupted in the form of the Staffs Pindown Scandal in the late 1980s, the extent of which was concealed by the Co-Chairs of the subsequent Public Inquiry, Allan Levy QC and Barbara Kahan. Babs was a social worker who was married to Oxford child psychiatrist Vladimir Kahan and they had both colluded with organised abuse. Babs had been the manager of paedophile social worker Louis Minster who became Director of Social Services for Richmond-upon-Thames. The ring at Richmond run by Minster and his mates was concealed by, among others, Keith Vaz, when he was the Borough’s solicitor and Baroness Jenny Tonge. Tonge is a Top Doc, the daughter of two Staffordshire schoolteachers. Tonge’s career in medicine as a mature Doc substantially concerned ‘family planning’ and health services in Ealing. Jenny Tonge was married to another Top Doc, Keith Tonge, a consultant neuroradiologist at Tommy’s. One of the Tonges’ adult children died as a result of ‘accidental electrocution’ in 2004. Babs Kahan was then appointed as children’s social work adviser to Keith Joseph, when Joseph was Grocer Heath’s Secretary of State for the DHSS. Joseph was the MP for a Leeds constituency and colluded with Gwynne et al from Joseph’s early days in Gov’t under Macmillan. Joseph was part of the Tory Party scrapping and dealing that resulted in Thatch becoming Leader. When Joseph was taking advice from Kahan, Thatch was Education Secretary, having lunch at the Clarence and both Thatch and Tom King were ignoring the terrible problems in the Bridgwater schools, as well as those in the schools in north Wales and other regions where branches of the Gang were at work…

Babs was a big name in social work for years after the Heath Gov’t and worked at the NCB (National Children’s Bureau) with the paedophile social work academic Peter Righton, who bagged a job at Keele University. Keele is in Staffs and had quite a problem with staff and students who were Gang accomplices. Michael Mansfield is a Keele graduate; Mansfield lived in Wandsworth when I lived just down the road.

Bowden was a Guy’s graduate, as were a whole cluster of Gang members/supporters. Prof Robert Owen was an orthopaedic surgeon, a Guy’s man and by the time that I encountered Bowden, Owen had concealed the Gang’s crimes by utilising Bluglass to Chair the July 1989 ‘investigation’ into my complaint about the Gang. Bluglass is a St Andrew’s grad but after working in Scotland, by the early 1970s Bluglass was the Next Big Thing in Psychiatry at Birmingham University. His mentor at Birmingham was Bill Trethowan, into who’s shoes Bluglass stepped. Trethowan was a Guy’s graduate, as was his dad and his mum. The Trethowans ran the place. Trethowan’s dad was an orthopaedic surgeon at Guy’s who almost certainly taught/trained Robert Owen.

Sister Hutt’s dad Michael Hutt was a Tommy’s graduate but in later life held a Chair of Pathology at Guy’s. Uncle Harry held a Chair at Guy’s.

Bill Trethowan was an old boy of Oundle School, as was Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and a whole cluster of those who were Of The Gang, including Harold Wilson’s Minister of Health Sir Kenneth Robinson. Robinson’s dad was a Top Doc and his mum was an Angel. Sir Peter Scott, who served as Chancellor of Birmingham University when Trethowan/Bluglass were running things in the Dept of Psych there, was an old Oundle boy, as was David Lewis Davies, the Dean of the Maudsley when Dafydd, Bowden and many others Trained at the Maudsley.

It was a nice arrangement at Birmingham, because after Tony Francis relocated from Manchester to north Wales, his old boss/mentor from Manchester Ian Brockington relocated to Birmingham to take up a Chair alongside Bluglass! Brockington was in place just before Bluglass ‘investigated’ my complaint about the Gang!

Bowden Trained at the Maudsley just after Dafydd had Trained there. Bowden Trained at the Maudsley when Dafydd’s old boss and mentor Dr Bob Hobson was still in full swing at the Maudsley, running a huge sex abuse ring under the umbrella of community psychiatry/therapy. Robin Jacobson made a point of letting everyone know before they met me that Dafydd had Trained with Bob Hobson at the Maudsley in those happy days! See the source image

So Paul Bowden had heard the alarm blasting away very loudly. I don’t know if Bowden’s ward really had to close because of a suicide thus preventing him from arriving at Springfield to Assess me when he initially agreed, but if a convenient suicide had not occurred, this lot would have been capable of murdering a patient to ensure that they had a suicide on que.

Nita Mitchell-Heggs, the whistleblower shooter at St George’s, Trained at the Maudsley as well. So did most of the psychs who worked at St George’s/Springfield and dear departed Adrianne Reveley who was hired by the Welsh Gov’t to provide an Independent Opinion when I began litigation against the NHS some years ago. Adrianne knew many who’s names littered my medical records, she’d worked with friends of Dafydd and Tony Francis and her dad was a Top Doc who knew Gwynne’s circle. Adrianne’s dad was a Top Doc in er Staffordshire. Adrianne’s husband was a psychiatrist in Leicester. Adrianne’s former junior doc was Ben Goldacre who exposes bad science and has doubled up as a Gov’t adviser…See the source image

In 1977, when Paul Bowden took up his first consultant post at St George’s, St George’s and Springfield had already been working together in the trafficking and Class A dealing/distribution business for nearly 10 years, the arrangement having been forged by St George’s psychiatrist Peter Brett Storey in the late 1960s. St George’s was located in Knightsbridge until the early 1980s, but the Gang went into business proper with Wandsworth Borough Council, on who’s turf Springfield was, in the late 1960s, Storey establishing the link needed. St George’s already had a well-established reputation for protecting very posh criminals, as exemplified by their role in the 1960s re Jeremy Thorpe and Norman Scott. Then they hit the jackpot with Lord Lucan in 1974. Lord Lucan will have paid someone at St George’s a great deal of money to declare Lady Lucan Mad and In Need Of Sedation when she turned up with head wounds while a dead nanny lay in the basement See the source imageand Lord L scarpered.

In 1977 Bowden joined a team of psychiatrists at St George’s who were already quite mad and experienced criminals (see ‘Meet The Gwerin!’). Two psychiatrists who worked with Bowden at St George’s were Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Sex Therapist Jim Watson and his wife Sex Therapist Christine. Jim and Christine subsequently moved on to Guy’s where they established a Sex Therapy clinic. Jim and Christine taught Sex Therapy as well as practised it. One could be reassured that Jim was a Real Sex Therapist because he wore a bow tie: See the source image

By 1977, the other Depts at St George’s were coming along nicely, as well as Psychiatry. Ollie Brooke had his feet under the table in the Dept of Paediatrics and Bodger had arrived – or his arrival was imminent – in the Dept of Obs and Gynae…

Upon hitting the big time at St George’s, Bowden offered his services to Stamford Remand Home in London. Stamford Remand Home was the subject of constant allegations that the boys within were being seriously sexually and physically abused, even in an era when such matters were not discussed as frequently as they are now. Hansard records discussions in the House re events at Stamford Remand Home that caused a national scandal in the earlier years of the 1960s. The complaints continued to pour out of Stamford Remand Home as the years passed. A stint at Stamford Remand Home was the key to professional success for staff; not only did Bowden make it big, but Peter Clarke, the first Children’s Commissioner for Wales – an Office that was established on the Recommendation of Ronald Waterhouse to ensure That It Never Happened Again (although as Waterhouse emphasised, not much did happen) – began his social work career at Stamford Remand Home! Peter Clarke came from Llandudno, as did Gwynne. It’s the Sea Breeze. See the source image

Stamford Remand Home was located not a million miles away from the old BBC TV Centre at Shepherd’s Bush.See the source imageSee the source image

The psych system in which Bowden had risen to the very top was primarily run to assist criminality in high places, especially the Westminster Paedophile Ring. The Maudsley led the fray in terms of psychiatry because it had built a reputation as the leading training institution for psychiatrists. Whilst it was true that most of them passed through the Maudsley, the discipline was in such a sorry state that the reputation of the Maudsley was pure myth, there was no expertise, just a great deal of malpractice and criminals sticking together like glue.

Forensic psychiatrists were as much the business of the Home Office as they were the DHSS. Both Gov’t Depts were as rotten as psychiatry and the Top Docs knew that no-one at the Home Office was ever going to question them let alone rein them in. They did whatever they wanted but then as the business of the Home Office was also concealing or indeed perpetrating state-sanctioned crime, we should not be surprised that the Home Office enjoyed such a good relationship with a rotten medical profession, in particular the psychiatrists and pathologists.

If it is true that Leon Brittan, Home Secretary, June 1983-Sept 1985, was a child abuser himself, that epitomises the scale of the problem. However even if the allegations about Leon are untrue, he and every other Home Secretary undoubtedly concealed very grave crimes on the part of the Gang in a way that cannot be excused. For everyone like Norman Scott or in a lesser way me, who’s cases became known to the public, there were many more people who spent their entire lives languishing in some hell-hole like Denbigh or Broadmoor who were absolutely not the people that these state-bankrolled crooks like Bowden and BluglassSee the source image declared them to be. Dangerous people do exist, including dangerous people in the psychiatric system, but the judgements of Bowden et al could not be relied upon in any way. Furthermore, Once They Have Spoken, the target will not be able to persuade any Top Doc to disagree with them on an official basis, even if, a la my experience with Tom Burns, they hold a private conversation with the target in which they coolly admit that they know what the target is alleging is indeed true. It will be a case of the Price Is Right but in addition Tom et al don’t want to die and they don’t want their families to die and they know that is the bottom line.

What can be done if M See the source imageand C See the source image on Brenda’s Secret Service are personal friends with Gang members or for whatever reason will not take action against them?

After the party games with Paul Bowden, Jacobson Referred me to Prof Nigel Eastman, Image result for professor nigel eastman imagesbarrister, Top Doc and friend of St Helena’s. Or at least I encountered Eastman after I encountered Bowden. So many lies were told by so many people, I’m not sure of the exact sequence of events. Certainly Eastman received a letter from Jacobson about me either very soon after Jacobson arrived at my house on 15 Jan 1991 or it may have even been drafted before… They seemed very certain that I was not going to receive any support no matter what happened and everyone involved was happy to accuse me of being paranoid/dangerous/deluded while admitting in writing that Dafydd had described me as being ‘attractive and seductive’ and that Dafydd and, they suspected Tony Francis as well, were having sex with patients…

Nigel Eastman Image result for professor nigel eastman imageshad been told by Jacobson in a letter dated 16 Jan 1991 that Bluglass had declared me to be ‘a criminal psychopath who would end in special hospital’. Jacobson had written to Bluglass on 16 Jan 1991, but they also seemed to have had a phone conversation as well. Again I’m wondering whether all these spectacular quotes and opinions were ones that they’d prepared earlier, See the source imagebecause as far as I can see, Jacobson wasn’t faxing letters, so how could a letter to Bluglass from Jacobson dated 16 Jan 1991, result in Bluglass providing information and florid comments in time for Jacobson to include them in his letter to Eastman, also on 16 Jan 1991?  I didn’t know about these matters until I obtained my records. Furthermore Bluglass had previously told Dafydd that I would ‘end in ward for the criminally insane’, which Dafydd thought was ‘chilling’.See the source image

Although Nigel Eastman was, like Paul Bowden, one of the Biggus Dickuses who’s Opinion was sought re me because poor old Jacobson needed the advice of Someone Senior With Expertise, See the source imagethere does not seem to be a copy anywhere in my files of anything written by Eastman about me, beyond a copy of the letter from his Dept inviting me to the one and only appointment that I had with him.

I have copies of notes compiled by Alice Levinson stating that I will be discharged from Springfield Hospital with no further contact except for a ‘double appointment’ with Jacobson (a double appointment being the sum total of 30 mins) that Alice wrote very soon after Bowden met with me. Alice was a registrar but was clearly acting on instructions from someone else. Although the decision had been made to discharge me and then refer me ‘to Forensics for containment’ no less (Forensics being Nigel Eastman, the appointment with him taking place after I had been discharged with no job, nowhere to live etc), no-one told me that for a number of days, and a series of events were constructed by Springfield Hospital which seemed to have been designed to provoke me into signing myself out or providing Springfield with an excuse to throw me out.See the source image

One such occasion was the theft of my shoes by another patient, a seriously crazy elderly West Indian bag lady, who was brought in by the police as being in need of care and safety, who was left in a day room by herself overnight and utterly ignored by the staff. She disappeared of her own accord early the next morning and my shoes went with her. I didn’t complain about theft per se because I took the view that the Angels’ ‘care’ of that bag lady was so bad that theft was neither here nor there. I did press the hospital to provide me with another pair of shoes, as they were the only shoes that I had. There was much arse-iness and surliness and after a few hours I was grudgingly given a small credit note with which to buy the cheapest pair of shoes in the notorious Springfield shop, selling ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’ clothes at which the patients marvelled and asked ‘Are such clothes still being made and if so who is making them and WHY??’

I found documentation in my files a few days ago relating to that incident; I note that I ‘alleged’ that my shoes had been stolen. It was stressed at the time that Springfield Took No Responsibility, I left those shoes in the day room when those shoes should have been with me, being My Responsibility. So a pair of not exactly Jimmy Choos but OK shoes disappeared into thin air to be replaced by Institutional ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest Shoes’. When I arrived back at my place I found a letter from St George’s effectively sacking me. I had to settle up re rent, bills etc so there was not going to be any spare cash to buy some shoes good enough for the interviews that I was going to need to attend. Brown understands such games on the part of Those Who Help and thus I didn’t spend too long in Institutional Shoes…

Another event that nearly resulted in me leaving Springfield before I knew that there had obviously been no intention at all to ever provide meaningful help or support was The Time That I Attacked Another Patient. See the source imageSee the source imageNo of course I didn’t, she (mildly) physically attacked me and received a mouthful from me. That was my Attack. This patient’s name is written on my documents but I’m not repeating it here, she wasn’t served any better by Springfield than the rest of us were. She was a young Asian woman who came from a middle class family locally who were, it was said, friendly with Top Docs in St George’s. She was unhappy and distressed about something but she was the sort of patient who caused Angels to mutter angrily ‘She’s not ill, she shouldn’t be here, she’s faking it’. Unlike any other Malingerer, this young woman was given the time of day because her family knew the Top Docs and she had begin to do things in her community that were causing much embarrassment, such as stripping off, asking passers-by to shag her etc. She was certainly risking it doing that in Springfield…

As well as stripping off and hurling obscenities at the other patients, she also enjoyed pulling bed covers off of people and generally pissing them off. Top Docs like to pretend that all psych patients behave like this See the source image but they don’t, it is relatively unusual.

After two or three other patients had discharged themselves as a result of this patient, the Angels rearranged the ward to ensure that her bed was next to mine… When I was accused by Ruth White of Attacking this girl, I explained what had happened and mentioned that it was unrealistic to expect all to go smoothly if a person behaving thus was next to me constantly yelling obscenities, stripping off, pulling my covers off etc. According to my medical notes Ruth White explained to me that psychiatric wards can be noisy and disturbing places. See the source imageWhat happened in reality was that Ruth White et al maintained that I had carried out a Violent Assault and that as I was potentially So Dangerous, if there was one more Incident with this patient I would be discharged immediately. Other patients were told by the Ward Manager that I was Dangerous. See the source imageThey defended me and said no, it isn’t Sally who is attacking people. The Ward Manager then shouted at everyone that he wasn’t going to listen to this and walked out of the meeting that had been called by the patients to discuss the chaos prevailing.

So far, I have found only the initials of the Angels who manned that ward on my documentation, with the exception of one Angel’s signature, an S Walton. Other Angels just signed records with an indecipherable squiggle or initials. I will keep looking, because all Angels on that ward and in particular the two ward managers – a foul mouthed Ozzie called Stephanie and her mate, an older South Asian man who’s name we were only given in passing and which I can’t remember – were witness to the crime that pervaded that hospital. Which will be why they didn’t sign the records properly… The Top Docs were barely ever actually on the wards, in the event of death and an inquest, police investigation, Public Inquiry etc, it is Angels who are summoned to provide Evidence of the Patient’s Mental State, whether they had complained about anything etc. See the source imageI have read accounts of Coroners, judges etc simply accepting a hospital’s statement that signatures are illegible and they just can’t ascertain who was on duty at that particular time.See the source image

The names of Springfield staff on my documents that are clear include Mrs Dee McEvoy, Assistant Manager, Control Services. Mrs Dee handled the request for my replacement shoes.

As for the Official Paperwork used by Springfield, I note that the Standard Documentation headed with ‘Springfield Hospital’, included a tick box re ‘Mental Category’ with the following categories: ‘Mentally Ill’, ‘Psychopath’, ‘Subnormal’, ‘Severely Subnormal’. This was in Jan 1991. The Clinical Director of Springfield Hospital was Rachel Perkins, who ‘retired’ on the grounds of ill-health after a series of rapes and murders at Springfield, then constructed herself as Service Users’ Champ, bagged a seat on the St George’s NHS Trust Board as the Service Users’ Rep and subsequently joined the EHRC as the Disability Commissioner. In my case none of the boxes had been ticked by any Angel or Top Doc.

Rachel: Mentally Ill, Psychopath, Subnormal or Severely Subnormal? 

After leaving Springfield, I attended the appointment with Nigel Eastman Image result for professor nigel eastman imagesand his colleague Dr Bartlett, a female Top Doc, on 20 Feb 1991. Peter Morrison was knighted in Feb 1991 and my friend was forced out of her job at the Royal Television Society in Feb/March 1991…

I have never been able to find out who Dr Bartlett was. Eastman told me to go back to north Wales because Dafydd knew me and was my doctor… See the source imageAlthough I was alleged to have been plotting to murder Dafydd et al in cold blood, they were all terrified of me in north Wales and I had ‘brought the psychiatric service in north Wales to its knees’. See the source imageAnd one unidentified Top Doc in north Wales was threatening to resign because of me.See the source image

Eastman qualified as a Top Doc from Bristol University in 1979; I think that he qualified as a barrister before reading medicine. Eastman is of Gray’s Inn a la William Mars-Jones and Lord Elwyn-Jones – two of the biggest friends of the Gang – and St Helena and Michael Mansfield.

So the essential Springfield documentation relating to the most guilty is either missing or unsigned. See the source imageAs two Attorney Generals – Michael Havers and Paddy Mayhew – a number of High Court judges and goodness knows how many Cabinet Ministers, as well as Thatch, Major and a few Lord Chancellors were on board and of course Carlo, we cannot be surprised that there is no paper trail leading to the doors of the most guilty. Because as any fule kno, Fings Break.

The various plants really were lacking weren’t they. Fings Broke for my friends constantly and Dafydd et al were never put out of action. They are gradually dying of old age now but that’s because the plants were so bloody hopeless. An awful lot of Fings Broke while the plants did sod all worrying that Fings Might Break.

The plants might as well have not been there. I can’t think of much that they saved me from. Obviously someone threw a spanner in the works re the lobotomy plan, but had the plants dealt with Gwynne and Dafydd when they should have, no-one would have dared even try the lobotomy plan.

PLANTS! Gwynne shouldn’t have been there! And if you plants were being ignored by your bosses in Gov’t, the sodding Gov’t shouldn’t have been there. Now do me a favour and deal with these people.

I have discussed in previous posts how, because I was being refused all help by Springfield, I visited the GPs surgery  in Trevelyan Road, Tooting with which I was registered, only to be met with a totally offensive GP whom I had not met before. Bile was heaped upon me and she snapped that she would certainly not be treating me and would Discuss Me With Springfield. I was so fed up by now that I revisited her on 26 Feb 1991, removed the documents from her desk from which this insulting cow was gaining her Insights about me and walked out of the surgery with them. The cow pursued me down the road, all friendliness, begging me to bring the documents back. I returned to Wales permanently days later, taking the documents with me and I hid them. Little wonder there was a panic, the documents were written by Robin Jacobson and he had admitted in writing that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and he suspected that Tony Francis was as well.See the source image Although despite the written admissions re Dafydd, the conclusion of Springfield was that I had ‘Personality Problems’ and suffered from ‘Paranoia’. It’s Official, signed by a ‘JR’. (Yet another diagnosis by an unknown Springfield hand added after I left was Bipolar Disorder.) That was how I knew just a little of how serious the conspiracy was years before I obtained my records in 2005…

The lies and conspiracy simply escalated back in north Wales after 26 Feb 1991, that lot just could not meet patients in an open and transparent way, their criminality was far too serious.

Previous posts have discussed two GPs at Trevelyan Road, Penny Smith and James Le Fanu. Le Fanu is famous, he’s a media doc and for years Le Fanu was the Torygraph’s medical correspondent. See the source imagePenny Smith is still practicing but I note that Le Fanu has recently voluntarily relinquished his licence to practice. Why Us? By James Le FanuPenny Smith had a very nice manner, she wasn’t the appalling cow with whom I was in dispute, but Penny did know that her colleagues were serious criminals and that patients were in danger. My recent perusal of documents show that Penny wrote to Tom Burns on 14 Jan 1991; that was almost certainly because I visited her when I returned from north Wales and told her that I was feeling rough. Jacobson arrived for the home visit the next day. Penny did the correct things for a GP with a distressed patient, but she knew that she was working with a broken system completely infiltrated with serious crime. Image result for professor tom burns imagesWhy Us? By James Le Fanu As with GPs in north Wales, Penny Smith knew that no patients were being helped no matter how many referrals were made.

I have found the name of the other partner in the practice at Trevelyan Road, whom I did meet once but I had forgotten his name; it was E. Tod. As well as being the most senior partner in the practice, Tod also held a senior academic post at the Dept of General Practice at St George’s. Tod seems to no longer have a licence to practice.See the source imageWhy Us? By James Le Fanu

Here’s a few gems from my 1991 documents, re the adventures when I returned to Gwynedd after my ‘assessment’ by Eastman and Bartlett, jobless and with no income; no-one had told me about sickness benefits etc. I found out about sickness benefits when F told me, having met F on the Bethesda to Bangor bus and joined the group of Empowered Service Users who used to go to his house in Bethesda for coffee and Survival Advice.

My friendship with F was noted on my medical notes by Paul Nickson, the Bethesda GP, on 5/8/91, alongside the comment that I was ‘still making accusations of Dr D.A. Jones raping patients’. On 20/9/91, Nickson documented on my notes that he had telephoned Alwyn, my solicitor and Alwyn ‘will phone Dr Mawson on 23/9/91’.

Dr David Mawson was the consultant psych whom Alwyn had contacted when I returned from London to Gwynedd and no mental health ‘professional’ in any part of north Wales would agree to have contact with me because I was just so Dangerous. Dr Mawson, I was told, was based in Yorkshire. He had actually just left his job at Ashworth, with Chris Hunter et al… Mawson had resigned after the dreadful media headlines resulting from the first Inquiry into Ashworth, Chaired by Louis Blom-Cooper QC, who recommended that Ashworth be closed in the wake of the murders, rapes and beatings there. Blom-Cooper had known about that for years; in his role as Chairman of the Mental Health Act Commission, St Louis had ignored all complaints about Ashworth and of course about Dafydd, who was pulling the strings at Ashworth.

When I did eventually meet Dr Mawson, he was very pleasant and entertaining. He really was good fun and easy to talk to. He discussed with me at length the serious problems at Ashworth and attributed them entirely to the POA. The POA were bloody dreadful, but David Mawson never mentioned to me that Dafydd et al ran Ashworth… Dr Mawson disappeared off of the planet a few years after I met him; he moved to Broadmoor not long after I encountered him, starred on a TV show, was appointed to the Parole Board and was subsequently removed from the Medical Register and that was it…

Years later when I worked as a sociologist at Bangor University, I found that two of my colleagues, Catherine Robinson and John Bailey, being psychologists who trained at UCNW, knew Dr Mawson. John Bailey, a clinical psychologist, had worked with Mawson at er Ashworth. John told me that he didn’t know why Mawson disappeared but he was known to have developed an alcohol problem and severe depression.

See previous posts for Dr Mawson details…

David Mawson was of course fully on board with the Gang but had a much nicer manner. Mawson declared me to have Schizophrenia and to be in need of long-term anti-psychotics, although he flagged up that I was a clever, pleasant, likeable young lady. Not a word about Danger or Violence, but I have now realised that the Cunning Plan was to not make a total idiot of himself as his colleagues had, get me on board with a ‘This has all been a terrible cock-up but now it’ll be sorted’ line, hand me back over to the Gang, while Mawson left the scene and then the Gang would do their worst after a polite interval.

I knew that Mawson must have known about Dafydd and Gwynne, but I keep forgetting that the entire network had been warned that I had possession of those incriminating documents that I took from Trevelyan Road Surgery and they really had to work at this one…

My interest now is not in Mawson’s deceit or his role in the Cunning Plan but why the Gang shafted him. He was certainly no worse than the rest of them. Info has been sent my way telling me that the involvement of the Independent Dr Mawson was just another Cunning Plan worked out on a collective basis because of the panic ensuing after I had gained those few highly incriminating documents from Trevelyan Road, wasn’t talking about them to anyone and had secreted them… Brown and I were under surveillance so the security services knew that those documents were in my house and that Brown knew the contents.

I am told that Tiny Rowland was the ultimate mover and shaker behind events because his mega-empire was bound up with the Top Docs’ trafficking ring. Tiny owned shrinks. As well as a few other people.See the source image

Previous posts have discussed Tiny’s biography and activities in some detail, as well as those of his son Toby and Toby’s wife Plum Sykes, whom Toby married in 2005. Just to briefly recap, Toby is a ‘businessman’. Toby didn’t establish his first business until 1999, the year after his dad died. Toby’s business activities seem to be primarily online gambling, unless he has diversified… But it was online gambling – including the site king.com – that made Toby well-known.

There is at present much trauma re the cheap n cheerful explosion in gambling now that people can just take advantage of businesses of the sort run by Toby, enabling less advantaged people to gamble themselves into the gutter, as opposed to the Good Old Days when one had to be Lord Lucan, Sir Jams Goldsmith, John Aspinall or another of the Mayfair Set and have enough dosh to spend all night in Gentlemen’s Clubs frittering away the family fortune. See the source imageEven George Carman QC found that gaming left him in dire financial difficulties which is why the Barrister to the Westminster Paedophile Ring didn’t have quite the fortune that he would have had he not spent so much time blind drunk or at the tables.

Toby’s wife Victoria “Plum” Sykes (born 4 December 1969) is a fashion journalist, novelist and socialite. Victoria Sykes was born in London, one of six children including a twin sister, Lucy, and grew up in Sevenoaks, Kent. Among her friends at Ide Hill Church of England Primary School was Rowan Pelling, who became the Editor (or “editrice”) of the Erotic Review. From there Plum went to a private secondary school, Walthamstow Hall and subsequently to Sevenoaks School, an independent boys’ school that had begun admitting girls to the sixth form. In 1988 Plum went up to Worcester College, Oxford. Plum published a short memoir of her first term at university (Oxford Girl, 2011).

Sykes’ mother Valerie Goad, a dress designer, separated from Sykes’ father Mark while Plum was at Oxford. Plum’s grandfather, Christopher Sykes (1907–1986), whom she knew as “F.G.”, was a friend and official biographer (1975) of the novelist Evelyn Waugh and son of the diplomat Sir Mark Sykes, (1869–1919), associated with the Sykes–Picot Agreement of 1916, by which Britain and France carved up the Ottoman Empire after WW I, with negative consequences. See previous posts. Plum’s 18th century forebear Sir Christopher Sykes (1749–1801), was a major figure in the enclosure movement that seized ownership of common land for private use, forcing peasants off their land, thus ensuring a supply of workers for the industrial revolution…

Plum’s grandpa’s pal Evelyn Waugh was of course the father of Auberon, right-wing journo and satirist of ‘Private Eye’ fame. Bron lived at Combe Florey near Taunton; he inherited the house from Evelyn. The Waughs were Catholics and Tory. Bron lived in du Cann’s constituency and although Bron robustly took the piss out of many things, including Mr Thrope, Bron’s loyalty remained to the Tory establishment and he never published a word about many matters of which he knew, including du Cann’s criminality, Gwynne, Dafydd, the Westminster Paedophile Ring etc. See the source imageI don’t actually know, but I suspect that Bron was mobilised against my grandfather and subsequently me. As my career was being wrecked, as well as the careers of my friends, Bron’s daughter Daisy published her First Novel to rave reviews from Bron’s colleagues and it was stressed that Daisy was a Bright Young Thing From Taunton. I was always told that Daisy went to Bishop Fox’s School – Brown’s mum used to teach there – but biographies of Daisy’s state that she went to Taunton School. As did the boy who was one of my best friends at Bawdrip Infants School…

Bron also starred in the NUS newspaper just after I graduated when the Gang was gearing up for serious war. It was at the time that the disgusting Phil Woolas became NUS President on the back of his knowledge of the Gwynne Row. Phil got as far as a Home Office Minister using his knowledge of Gwynne et al and me, as discussed in previous posts.

So Plum’s family and friends could have well been cashing in on the eruptions between the Gang and me to an even greater extent that Phil Woolas.

In 1993, Plum became a fashion assistant at British Vogue. She was featured that year, with, among others, designer Bella Freud and model Stella Tennant in Babes in London, in a photographic shoot by the American Steven Meisel (responsible in 1992 for the singer Madonna‘s controversial collection, Sex), which was produced by the rising fashion guru Isabella Blow (1958–2007). Isabella ‘committed suicide’ after severe depression and clinical negligence on the part of expensive private Top Docs that would have done Hergest proud. Isabella’s close friend fashion designer Alexander McQueen subsequently ‘committed suicide’ after er severe depression and not receiving the care that he needed. See previous posts for details.

Isabella, McQueen and Plum all knew Bodger’s son and colleagues and very probably Bodger as well.

In 1997, the year in which Ronnie Waterhouse opened his Inquiry and Diana crashed in a tunnel, Plum Sykes became a contributing editor on fashion for American Vogue, of which Anna Wintour, also British, had been Editor-in-Chief since 1988. I wonder if Nuclear Wintour knew Bodger?? This period at Vogue  inspired Lauren Weisberger‘s 2003 novel The Devil Wears Prada. Sykes soon became a familiar figure on the New York social scene, being frequently described as an “It girl”.

A decade later, at 38, Sykes reflected that “when you hit 30 you lose your edge”: invited by the Times to comment on the late-1990s trend for ultra-high heeled shoes, she observed that “these weird space-age shoes look cool and trendy and are a way of getting back to some degree”, but that “this type of trend is not a classic version of beauty. Men want women to be sexy. They’d be happy if we were all [the model] Gisele Bündchen, but that’s just not fashion”.

Which were rather condemning comments of Plum’s industry. Dunno about you Plum, but I’m 57 and I don’t feel that I’ve lost my edge at all, although Bodger et al did their best to ensure that I ended up dead. Thank goodness I got away from them.

The world of New York fashion was the setting for Sykes’ first novel, Bergdorf Blondes (2004), which was one of the most successful examples of “chick lit” (or “chic lit” as some dubbed Sykes’ writing) and sold a quarter of a million copies worldwide. It took its title from the Bergdorf Goodman store in Upper Manhattan.

A second novel, The Debutante Divorcée, was published in 2006. Sykes publicised it with an array of personal appearances at stores in New York (Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Frederic Fekkai, Ferragamo, Neiman Marcus and Oscar de la Renta). The Debutante Divorcée appeared in paperback in 2007.

Some have seen Sykes’ books as lying in natural succession to Sex and the City, Candace Bushnell‘s column in the New York Observer, which was the inspiration for a highly successful television series (HBO 1998–2004). Others remarked that the story was no less than the kind of offensive vapid claptrap you would expect from a dead-eyed rich girl. Despite their satire, others have regarded them as too rooted in Sykes’ own Park Avenue “set” to be reflective more generally of women’s lives in post-9/11 Manhattan.

Having some knowledge of what underpinned Plum’s Scene, I take the view that it is seriously sad, sordid and vacuous, but Plum is not the most culpable. It’s the Top Docs everyone, they’re monsters in disguise. No-one expects anything more from Nuclear Wintour and her mates, but there is still no acknowledgement that Bodger and pals were running an international trafficking ring…

Here’s Anna, with her Problem Area on display:

Anna is allowed to display her Problem Area because she’s the Boss. In the way that Bodger was allowed to have a huge belly and bad breath or indeed be killing and torturing prem babies, and Bodger’s colleagues could Assess me without ever having met me and declare me to be Dangerous and in need of living with Mr Savile, perjure themselves in Court etc.

In 2005 Plum Sykes married British entrepreneur Toby Rowland, son of businessman “Tiny” Rowland, at Sledmere House, her family’s ancestral home in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Her dress, with an eight-foot train and hand-sewn roses, was designed by Sykes’ friend and protégé of Isabella Blow, Alexander McQueen. Plum was sometimes described as a muse of McQueen; she modelled for some of his earliest catwalk shows, as well as for photoshoots of his designs. Before her wedding, Plum wrote an article for Vogue about shopping for suitable lingerie for her wedding night, an article that included reference to a “$900 bra”. Six years later some fashion journalists – anticipating correctly the chosen designer See the source image – claimed that Kate Middleton had been inspired by Plum’s wedding dress to choose Burton to design hers for her marriage to William, although others suggested that the inspiration was that of Sara Buys to William’s stepbrother, Tom Parker Bowles.

A pity about Isabella and McQueen though.

Plum and Rowland had their first child, Ursula, in October 2006 and their second child, Tess, in June 2010.

Sykes’ twin sister Lucy, who moved to New York in 1996, became fashion director of Marie Claire, and later a designer of children’s clothes. Sykes later joked, with reference to the heiresses Paris and Nicky Hilton, that “Lucy and I were Paris and Nicky without the sextape”. Lucy Sykes married Euan Rellie, a New York-based investment banker, in 2002.

In the April 2012 issue of Vogue, Sykes writes of her three-year struggle with anxiety disorder and agoraphobia after the birth of her children, a condition which rendered her unable to work or to maintain her social life. Sykes admitted “I had visited doctors and consultants and had tests, procedures and scans, but no one could tell me what was wrong… I felt terrified, mentally and physically I was jelly. I was afraid to do anything. “Take some Xanax”, said one doctor, ‘it’s anxiety”. Sykes attended an anxiety recovery programme developed by anxiety expert, Charles Linden, which she cites as the solution that returned her to working for American Vogue and a full and active social life. In the article, Sykes says ‘I started The Linden Method… and felt better almost immediately… I took the girls to the park and pushed them on the swings, something I hadn’t been able to do for two years… now more than a year later, the anxiety has not returned.”

I do hope that Charles Linden found that business boomed after this advert starring Plum.See the source image

 

Now Then. Tiny Rowland died on 25 July 1998, from cancer, aged 81, midway through the Waterhouse Inquiry. The Ah the Doctors they were wonderful etc.  By July 1998, F and I were experiencing very serious grief constantly from the Gang, after we had been acquitted by Caernarfon Magistrates Court in the wake of the Gang prosecuting us following Arfon Community Mental Health Team CPN Bridget Lloyd’s lies to the police and perjury.

I must apologise to readers. Throughout this blog I have stated that we were acquitted at trial in Jan 1997; no, it was Jan 1998. The confusion arose because so many of the ‘summaries’ of events in my files compiled by lawyers etc have errors on them. Furthermore, because the Gang were constantly lying, forging, supplying false dates, names etc on documentation, it is very easy to become confused. Whilst perusing the 10,000 documents a few days ago, I found a whole batch of letters that I – and a letter that F – had written to Top Docs and NHS managers at the time and our dates and chronologies are very clear. We were acquitted by Caernarfon Magistrates in Jan 1998, not Jan 1997.

Just a few highlights. On 4 Feb 1997, Alun Davies wrote a letter in response to complaints from F and I about the constant harassment and false accusations on the part of the Gang. F had written in his letter that he didn’t want to get staff into trouble, but this was becoming ridiculous. I had mentioned in my letter that we were so sick of this that I had raised the matter with Dafydd Wigley, the MP for Caernarfon. Davies’s letter to me, dated 4 Feb 1997, actually suggested that as F didn’t want to get staff into trouble, I might like to bear that in mind with regard to my communication to Dafydd Wigley. The Waterhouse Inquiry opened in Jan 1997.See the source image

One of Dafydd Wigley’s political advisors was Ioan Bowen Rees, Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council throughout the 1980s. Prior to arriving at Gwynedd CC in 1980, Ioan had been the County Secretary of Dyfed CC. There was a ring in Dyfed directly linked to Gwynne and Dafydd. When complaints of abuse of kids in care in Gwynedd could be ignored no longer in the mid-1980s, Ioan commissioned an Independent Team to investigate, who gave Gwynedd CC a clean bill of health. The Independent Team were Senior Officers from Dyfed CC, Ioan’s former colleagues. Mark Drakeford worked as a social worker for Dyfed CC. See the source imageIoan advised on the establishment of the Welsh Assembly, being an Expert on Local Gov’t and Democracy. Ioan died on 4 May 1999, two days before the first batch of AMs were sworn in.

Throughout 1997, Ronnie took evidence in public from witnesses. Former kids in care who described the beatings, rapes etc were denounced by the world, as well as by Ronnie, as Lying Criminal Drug Addicts. All ‘professionals’ who agreed to give evidence were granted immunity from prosecution and were represented by lawyers. One such lawyer was the bent Gwynedd CC solicitor Ron Evans. One of Alwyn Jones’s colleagues was another. Another is now Judge Niclas Parry. Patricia Scotland QC, who was representing the Welsh Office, became Baroness Patricia, one of Miranda’s People’s Peers, just a few months after the Inquiry opened.See the source image

Ronnie suspended the Inquiry suddenly in the Spring, just for four weeks or so, declaring that he needed a holiday. He nipped over to Hong Kong, where he bumped into Derry Irvine and they had lunch together, marvelling that within two or three weeks Derry would be Lord Chancellor. On 24 April 1997 while Ronnie was in Hong Kong, Peter Howarth, the Bryn Estyn member of staff who on 8 July 1994 was sentenced to 10 years for the abuse of kids in care, died from a heart attack in HMP Wakefield. Howarth’s long-term friend and colleague, Matt Arnold, Head of Bryn Estyn, had died ‘from an unidentified blood disease’ on 9 June 1994, four days before Howarth’s trial opened at Chester Crown Court.

On 6 Aug 1997, a M. Jones based at 26 College Road, Bangor (the offices of the Arfon CMHT, a joint venture between Gwynedd Social Services and Gwynedd NHS), made a handwritten note stating that I had been complaining about Bridget Lloyd and Dafydd sexually abusing patients.

On 16 Aug 1997 I wrote to Alun Davies re our recent arrest and I told Davies, once more, that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients.

On 26 Aug 1997, Nerys Owen (Director of Nursing Services, Gwynedd Community Health Trust) wrote to Tony Francis, thanking him for the copy of the letter that I had written to Alun Davies. Nerys stated that F and I had written to her re a number of complaints that had not been pursued ‘one because it is unjustified and the other because they make reference to times which are out of date in terms of the policy’.

Problem solved, just Arrest Them!Image result for peter cook biased judge images

Tony Francis was demanding a Strategy Meeting…

On 31 Aug 1997 there was a crash in Paris.Image result for diana car crash images

On 13 Sept 1997, F wrote a letter to John Mullen, the CEO of Gwynedd Community Health Trust, that I do not remember ever reading before. This letter could not have been clearer. F reiterates to John Mullen that our complaints were not being investigated, that my complaints about Dafydd never were investigated, yet in Nov 1994, Dafydd was able to perjure himself in Court and even secure an injunction against us from Liverpool High Court thus. F wrote that Dafydd was known for preying on female patients, that F knew that numerous complaints had been made about Dafydd sexually abusing patients, that F knew women who had told F that Dafydd had behaved indecently towards them but no action was ever taken. In his letter, F explained to Mullen that not long previously, I had given F details of my Dafydd experiences, among them the time when I was unlawfully detained at Ysbyty Gwynedd by Jackie Brandt on 17 Aug 1986 and physically dragged into a room containing Dafydd by Bridget Lloyd, because I was refusing to see him. F mentions that I had told him that Bridget had left my arm bruised, such was the force used. Of course F also stated that once I was in the room, I was left alone with Dafydd who proceeded to Talk Sex… F’s letter explains that he was so angry at what I told him – I hadn’t previously supplied F with full details of that encounter – that he rang the Arfon CMHT and swore at a male colleague of Bridget’s. F goes on to explain that hours later we were arrested for ‘threatening Bridget’. F’s letter of 13 Sept 1997 tells Mullen that ‘we are now nervously awaiting trial’. Image result for derry irvine imagesOnce more, F asks for a full investigation from Mullen.

Mullen’s response to F’s letter seems to have been to immediately sound the alarm with a view to covering up all over again. On 22 Sept 1997, a fax marked URGENT was sent to Alun Davies re F’s letter, with the covering note of ‘urgent comments please, JFM needs to reply before Wednesday’. JFM being Mullen. There is no copy of the content of Mullen’s fax to Davies, but it comprised a number of pages…

On 22 Sept 1997 George Thomas aka Lord Tonypandy, the most notorious of the Westminster Paedophiles died.

On 11 Nov 1997 Robin Holden, Head Of Mental Health Nursing at Gwynedd Community Health Trust, took our phone call re Dafydd sexually abusing patients, refused to identify himself but logged all of our ‘allegations’ and Shared them with everyone else.

Robin Holden wrote a File Note on 13 Nov 1997. Holden had held a meeting with Tony Francis, Jackie Brandt, Sheila Jenkins, Helen Hughes and Sarah Horton. I have no idea who Helen Hughes is. Sheila Jenkins was a highly abusive Gwynedd social worker, a member of the Arfon CMHT, who was married to a Bangor University academic. Their daughter Sarah Jenkins was on the psychology degree at Bristol University with Gordon Brown’s wife Sarah. After graduation, Sarah Jenkins shared accommodation on Anglesey with a girl whom I knew well from UCNW, rented from D.G.E. Wood and located in the extensive garden of his house at Llandegfan. The Jenkins’ family were big Labour Party supporters. Sarah Horton was an Occupational Therapist in the Arfon CMHT. She was a good friend of a neighbour of mine in Rachub who tried to speak to Sarah about the constant intimidation that I was receiving at the hands of Sarah’s colleagues. Sarah refused to discuss the matter on the grounds of confidentiality. Sarah’s friend from Rachub showed considerable public spirit when she continued to raise her concerns with regard to two other Empowered Service Users in Rachub who were very obviously being left to die by Gwynedd Social Services. Then she obtained a job looking after learning disabled adults and was horrified at what she witnessed. She also knew of a case of one of her clients who was neglected/abused at the Hergest Unit and she was well aware of how bad the Bethesda GPs were… Sarah Horton subsequently set up a charidee on Anglesey…

The meeting was held ‘in response to a request that we review the outcome of last Thursday’s meeting at Bron Afon’. Holden noted that there was confusion because there had been two meetings last Thursday… Holden noted that Tony Francis was incredibly rude to them all, asking ‘Why don’t you use your IQ a bit?’, ‘You’re more naïve than I thought you were’ and ‘You don’t seem to know your own GNC code of practice’.

Holden noted that ‘as the meeting progressed, he seemed to settle’.

Bechod! Holden used his Nursing Experience and Skills to Settle The Consultant Psychiatrist! See the source image

Robin had a terrible time with His Patient in that meeting, ‘initially he [Tony] was adamant that he would not be RMO [Responsible Medical Officer] to her [me]’. The Patient subsequently agreed that he would remain my RMO ‘until such time as another consultant took over, but I advised that this was putting him under a great deal of stress’.Image result for male nurse with elderly patient images

I do hope that Robin told Prof Mark Williams about His Patient’s distress, Tony Francis practised Mindfulness and was mates with Mark, but still became hooked on opiates…Image result for professor mark williams images

Shortly after Mark Williams relocated from Bangor to take up a Chair at Oxford’s Dept of Psychiatry, that Dept welcomed another new Prof, one Tom Burns from Springfield Hospital. Image result for professor tom burns images

 

Robin Holden noted that at no time in the meeting were any new threats by me revealed, although there was a feeling by Dr Tony Francis that my ‘insulting manner always seems threatening’. Image result for professor mark williams imagesRobin stated that he would be meeting with Tony and Sadie in the morning. He later added a P.S. to his file note explaining that the meeting was subsequently cancelled following a phone call from Sadie.See the source image

Shortly after this, a notice appeared in the Hergest Unit announcing that the Mental Health Act Commission would be visiting Hergest on 21 Nov 1997 and that patients could raise matters of concern with the Commissioners if they wished. Previous posts have explained that when this had last happened in Spring 1994, F and I had complained to the MHAC about Dafydd, yet no action was taken and Robin Holden had even refused to document that we had alleged that Dafydd had sexually abused patients on the grounds that to do so would be libelling Dafydd. Days after we met with the MHAC in 1994, Dafydd planted a brick, claiming that I had thrown it through his glass door in the early hours and the police recorded this as fact. An alarm system was installed to Protect Dafydd From Me, meetings with the North Wales Police were held about the Danger that I presented Image result for paul bowden imagesand in Nov 1994, Dafydd obtained his injunction from Liverpool High Court after perjuring himself telling them all about me throwing that brick. The police and the MDU knew within days of the brick being planted that I could not have done it, I was seen miles away at the time…

On 31 May 1994, Frank Beck ‘died from a heart attack’ in HMP Whitemoor, Cambridgeshire. Labour Leader John Smith had pegged out some two weeks previously. Letters about F and I making representation to the MHAC had begun flying back and forth by April 1994.

So in Nov 1997, F and I didn’t bother to meet the MHAC. We graffitied the poster, noting that all complaints about Dafydd would be ignored. F made a supplementary notice explaining to patients that if they were feeling suicidal, they needed to tell Alun Davies and ‘he will help you do it’.

On 20 Nov 1997, Dr Chris Jones, Forensic Psychiatrist (based in Wrexham) sent a memo to Alun Davies. Chris Jones stated that further to their discussions on 8 Nov 1997, he wanted to make it clear that Tony Francis remained my Top Doc and Jackie Ehlen my keyworker ‘purely because of the difficulties with College Road [the Arfon CMHT]. I do not accept that at the current time she [me] requires treatment in conditions of medium security, nor that she is a person who meets the criteria for the Forensic Service.’ Chris Jones tells Davies that the Forensic Service will be billing the Hergest Unit for the Forensic input… Chris Jones’s letter was signed pp PA Williams and was CC’d to Tony Francis and Jackie Ehlen.

On 27 Nov 1997, Robin Holden, ‘Head Of Mental Health Nursing/Lead Manager – AMI [Adult Mental Illness]’, wrote an internal memo to Jackie Ehlen thanking Jackie for her first assessment interview with me. After F and I were arrested, Tony Francis et al banned the Hergest Whistleblower and Ella Fisk from speaking to us and we were told that the Forensic Team were taking over our ‘care’, us being so Dangerous. Jackie was the Senior Angel with the Forensic Team. Holden told Jackie ‘I was very impressed with the quality. Please feel free to seek me out if you require support with this difficult case’.

My post ‘Inside Information About A Hergest Unit Death’ discusses how Jackie, Sadie and Sadie’s junior doc Colin Flood (Colin Qualified in 1986 at the University of Dublin; he is still on the Medical Register with a licence to practice and works as a GP in Llandudno) all lied at the inquest of Dorothy Griffiths, a patient who inexplicably died on the psych ward at Ysbyty Gwynedd in 1987/88. The Coroner acknowledged that the truth had not been told, but the matter was never followed up…  I only found out years later that they ALL knew that I knew that they had lied and I had evidence that was never presented in Court…Image result for paul bowden images

Jackie’s Report of her Assessment Interview with me was dated 17 Nov 1997. She noted that F and I had just appeared before the Magistrates and pleaded not guilty. I had told Jackie ‘in a very angry, forthright and absolute way that she [I] was assaulted by Bridget [Lloyd] whilst a patient on Seiriol Ward in 1985. [It was Aug 1986.] It was on this occasion that Sally was then taken to Denbigh and was ‘placed into the hands of Dr DA Jones’. [No, I was taken to Denbigh after Jones ordered me to be wrongly arrested in Dec 1986.] Sally is quite clear in her own mind that Bridget contributed to the alleged abuse by Dr DA Jones… Discussing these events since August [our arrest] I understand that Sally received a letter from the Welsh Office stating that they were not going to proceed with investigating the complaints that she was making against DA Jones…’

The Welsh Secretary at the time that letter was written was either Ron ‘I was looking for Badgers’ Davies Rondavies1998.jpg who was at the time married to barrister Christina, Official portrait of Christina Rees crop 2.jpgnow the Labour MP for Neath, or it may have been Alun Michael, AlunMichael crop.jpgnow Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales; Alun’s son Tal is now CEO of Gwynedd CAB, Lucille Hughes being on the Senior Management Board of CAB! See the source imageThe shift re Welsh Secretary changed as it were on 24 Oct 1998 and guess what? There does not seem to be a copy of that letter from the Welsh Office in my files…

The Welsh Office at the very time that they were refusing to investigate my complaints were paying good money to Baroness Patricia Scotland to represent them at the Waterhouse Inquiry which they had set up under the previous Gov’t when The Hague was Welsh Secretary. Patsy aggressively cross-examined the former kids in care who gave evidence, causing some to throw up and one to collapse. If only they’d maintained their Mindfulness Practice.See the source image

Mark Williams discovered the Miracle Of Mindfulness in 1987 and his first book on the subject thanked Keith Fearns and the Arfon Community Mental Health Team. 1987 was the year of the Cunning Plan to fit me up and imprison me and it was either in 1987 or 1988 when Dorothy Griffiths ‘drowned herself in the bath’ while Jackie Ehlen was in charge of the ward and those porkies were told at the inquest…See the source image

Jackie observed in her Report that F and I were on conditional bail until our next Court appearance in Dec 1997, after our arrest when George Thomas WAS ON HIS DEATHBED.

Robin Holden had written a letter to Bridget Lloyd dated 12 Nov 1997, confirming that Bridget was being given ‘5 days special leave on the grounds of urgent personal need to absent yourself from the area until after they [F and I] have attended Court on 17 Nov 1997. Please contact me on your return so that we can review the situation.’ Holden CC’d the letter to Alun Davies, Nerys Owen and Bruce Stephens.See the source image

The Gang certainly maxed out on Bridget’s trauma at our trial. The Court heard how Bridget was so terrified that I would attack her and ‘her young children’ that she had been issued with a personal alarm to carry with her at all times AND a safe house had been organised for her if I was acquitted.

I have a document written by Bridget that she sent to a senior NHS manager in Gwynedd just after we were arrested stating that she was not frightened of me, had only ever met me once, years ago and she was confident that I would not recognise her if I saw her.See the source image

On 16 Dec 1997 a Strategy Meeting re F and I was held in the Board Room at the Trust HQ. In attendance were: John Mullen, Nerys Owen, Tony Francis, Tony Lane (the Trust’s lawyer, based in Caernarfon), Jackie Ehlen, Keith Fearns, the Hergest whistleblower, Dr Jeremy Corson (Medical Director of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust), Robin Holden, Sadie Francis, Bridget Lloyd, Dr Chris Jones, Ella Fisk (Sister who ran the Day Centre at Hergest), Bruce Stephens (Nurse Manager of the Hergest Unit). See previous posts for details on this crowd…

Ronnie Waterhouse stopped taking evidence from witnesses in the latter months of 1997, just as Jackie Ehlen carried out her first Assessment on me with which Robin Holden was so impressed. Rob Evans, Assistant Director of Gwynedd Social Services with Responsibility for Mental Health, gave evidence at the Waterhouse Inquiry and told Ronnie that the Community Mental Health Services in Gwynedd were among the best in Europe. See ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ No-one cross-examined Rob causing him to collapse, although he was telling whoppers. Rob had consistently flatly refused to take any action against Fearns, Brandt et al for harassing/threatening F and I or perjuring themselves. Before Rob held the remit for Mental Health, Rob ran the Children’s Services for Lucille…

A handwritten note attached to the guff about the Strategy Meeting mentions that our trial at Caernarfon Magistrates Court will be held on 2 Jan 1998. Our trial was held on 20 Jan 1998; this was another error in the records…

In Jan 1998, I wrote a series of letters to Alun Davies reiterating that Dafydd was sexually harassing/abusing/exploiting patients. In response, Mullen wrote to Alun Davies and asked ‘Should we deal with it as a formal complaint?’

This was the CEO of the Trust writing to the Senior Manager responsible for Gwynedd’s Psychiatric and Learning Disability Services during a Public Inquiry into the serious abuse of children in care in north Wales over decades. The Director of Gwynedd Social Services was the mistress of the man whom I was constantly naming as sexually exploiting patients. The Public Inquiry investigated the abuse of children in the child and adolescent psychiatric unit in Colwyn Bay, Gwynfa Unit and admitted that it had been serious. The children were mostly referred to Gwynfa by psychiatrists in Gwynedd and Gwynfa was managed by an Angel who had Trained at Denbigh… See eg. ‘Don’t Be Silly, He’s Nice’.

So what did Alun Davies do when Mullen wondered if perhaps he should treat my letters as a formal complaint? Er, Davies wrote to Tony Francis to ask him if he thought that I might have ‘felt down over the New Year’…

On 21 Jan 1998 the day after our acquittal, I wrote to Jackie Ehlen and absolutely laid it on the line, but no, I didn’t ‘threaten’ or use ‘unacceptable language’ etc. I did mention in my letter to Jackie that Alun Davies had yelled and roared at us after the case when we simply said ‘NOT GUILTY Mr Davies, do we get an apology?’ Tony Francis yelled at F as well when F asked for an apology…

On 16 Feb 1998, Alun Davies wrote to me in response to my letter of 13 Feb 1998 on the subject of er Dafydd sexually exploiting/abusing patients, saying ‘The matters you raise are not new, I am satisfied that procedures within the mental health services in Gwynedd give more than adequate safeguards to the subject of sexual abuse of patients. I am copying your letter to Dr Tony Francis who is currently off sick.’

Tony Francis was by then in the throes of obvious serious illness, physical and mental. I am told that he became addicted to opiates, as a result of the treatment from his friend and colleague, another Gang member who dates back to the Glorious Reign Of Gwynne, Dr Christine Evans, the crude old bag who revelled in being known as the ‘Dick Doctor’. Dr Chris doubled up as charidee worker, community pub manager, local Councillor and as the net closed in, Dr Chris found herself the Chair of the North Wales Community Health Council. See eg. ‘A Charming And Uplifting Sound…’

On 27 Feb 1998, a Mrs A.G. Lloyd, ‘Headquarters Services Manager’, wrote to Alun Davies and told him – in response to my fury at our arrest and the refusal of anyone to apologise when we were acquitted – that Davies could tell me that I could always request an Independent Review under the NHS complaints procedure. That was the procedure that served me so well in 1989 when Robert Owen and Buglass got together and failed to address the serious criminality…

On 18 Feb 1998 – BEFORE A.G. Lloyd wrote to Alun Davies See the source image– John Mullen wrote to me telling me that if I was this unhappy with matters I could request an Independent Review by writing to Mr J. Mercer, Convenor of Complaints, Trust HQ, Bryn-y-Neuadd. Mullen helpfully explained that Mr J. Mercer ‘is a Non-Executive Director of the Trust Board’.

On 2 April 1998, Sharon Thompson – at that time Tony Francis’s secretary – documented that I had ‘threatened to stab Jackie Brandt’. Tony told Sharon not to worry about it.See the source image

On 8 April 1998, I wrote a letter to Bruce Stephens making a further complaint with regard to Dafydd, the sexual harassment, Jackie Brandt’s and Bridget’s key roles in my first encounter with Dafydd and the non-stop aggro and false accusations to which I had been subjected from then on.

On 22 June 1998, Alun Davies wrote to John Mullen telling him not to address a formal complaint that F and I had made ‘reiterating issues’. Er, guess which issues we were reiterating?? Copies of the correspondence were passed to Jackie Ehlen, Case Manager… F and I remained with the Forensic Team even after we had been acquitted of all charges, there was a flat refusal to treat as us Non-Dangerous.

It is striking just how many times during the first two years of the Waterhouse Inquiry, 1997 and 1998, that F and I wrote, phoned or simply said to senior figures in the Gwynedd Community Health Trust ‘Dafydd is sexually abusing patients and NO-ONE ever investigates any complaints about him’.

My post ‘An Error Of Judgement’ discusses how Lord Snowdon’s long term mistress, Ann Hills, was found dead, on the roof of her London penthouse, in a kneeling position, dressed in party gear, in the last hours of 1996/first hours of 1997. Ann’s dad Dr Elliott Philipp was an Obs and Gynae who was one of those facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring; he was a cousin of Sigmund Freud. Ann’s death was declared to be ‘suicide’ by the Westminster Coroner, the notorious Paul Knapman, See the source imagealumnus of St George’s and, I was told when I worked in London, ‘corrupt’. Any toxicologist or Top Doc would have known that Ann could not have died in the way suggested in the timescale suggested, it simply could not have happened, even Knapman, St George’s (1968) then barrister of Gray’s Inn (1972), will have known that.

I’ve only just noticed that Knapman went to Epsom College, the public school known for producing Posh Doctors, many of whom were Of The Ring. Previous posts eg. ‘I Am Passionately Committed…’ discussed Epsom School governor Dame Kathleen Raven, Britain’s Chief Nursing Officer from the late 1950s until 1972, who found herself CNO after working at Leeds with Jimmy Savile, who concealed Gwynne and Dafydd’s crimes and so much more. As Matron in Leeds, Dame Kathleen pioneered Beau Parlours, ‘comfortable rooms where a Nurse may entertain her Gentleman Friends’. Dame Kathleen’s brother went to Epsom School and became a Bart’s surgeon – Kathleen trained as an Angel at Bart’s herself – and her husband was the Prof of Dermatology at Durham. The Dame and her brother Trained at Bart’s, where Lord Snowdon’s grandfather had Trained as a Top Doc and psychiatrist. Ronald Armstrong-Jones, Lord Snowdon’s barrister father who kept a country home near Caernarfon as well as his main residence in Belgravia, was a governor of Bart’s.

After years of aggro and substandard bollocks from Bethesda Surgery, F and I changed GPs. I see from my documents that we were accepted as patients at Bron Derw Surgery in Bangor on 30 May 1997. See the source imageI have blogged previously about Dr Lauren Kraaijeveld at Bron Derw, how I always found her very pleasant, how she had admitted to me that Dafydd was ‘a ‘sick wicked man’ and ‘a crook’ and that she had actually seen documentary evidence of a huge embezzlement from the NHS scam perpetrated by Dafydd, ‘I saw his signature on the cheque’.Image result for peter cook biased judge images Lauren was like Penny Smith in Tooting; she didn’t, to my knowledge, mistreat patients herself, but she undoubtedly knew that they were not safe and that her colleagues were involved with serious crime.Image result for professor tom burns images

Dr Lauren is still listed on the Medical Register as having a licence to practice and she now seems to be based at the GPs surgery in Penmaenmawr in Conwy. Penmaenmawr is near Llanfairfechan, the site of Bryn-y-Neuadd Hospital, the now closed long-stay institution for the severely learning disabled, that also received patients lobotomised by Gwynne who were completely buggered but hadn’t actually died. Bryn-y-Neuadd was seriously grim, the location of as much cruelty, dehumanisation and abuse as Denbigh and Llanfairfechan was a village in which nearly every resident’s livelihood depended upon the grisly reality behind the Happy Place that was Bryn-y-Neuadd never being admitted. After Bryn-y-Neuadd closed, some of the Angels there bagged jobs as tutors in what became the School of Nursing at Bangor University. The building itself served as the HQ of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust and then the new medium secure psych unit was built there, Ty Llewllyn. There are still patients in Ty Llewellyn who were incarcerated on the advice of Dafydd and Gwynne decades ago and as the years passed were transferred Back To Their Home Area. Guess who wields power over their lives?? See previous posts.

Dr Do Nothing Roberts tried to have me transferred to Ty Llewellyn after I Attacked Angels in Taliesin Ward, but Ty Llewellyn refused to accept me, stating that I was not a Dangerous Patient. I only know about this because I now have the documentation… I suspect the real rationale was for the Cunning Plan to swing into action and me to be Imprisoned, having been deemed Dangerous But Not Mad Enough For Ty Llewellyn. Nobody would really want me in Ty Llewellyn, not with my letter-writing habits and powers of observation.

The Penmaenmawr/Llanfairfechan area is a hotspot for Care Homes of varying quality. During the Great Genocide of the Waterhouse Inquiry/Report years, after the Day Centre at the Hergest Unit closed down and Empowered Services Users were gradually rendered destitute and turned up dead, an Empowered one whom F and I knew, Delyth, was rehoused in an old folk’s home in Penmaenmawr. No-one knew why, because she wasn’t from Penmaenmawr or even elderly, she wasn’t dementing, she just had terrible tardive dyskinesia from the Medication That Helped Her So Much, thus she looked weird and was targeted by thugs. But if you listened to what she was saying it was totally rational. She died not long after, in the Care Home. I have no idea how, someone just told me that Delyth had died in the Care Home but no-one knew details.

Not long after Delyth Passed Over, Philip Jones, with whom I had been mates in Denbigh, was found dead in Penmaenmawr, in his Supported Accommodation. George Carman and the Digger knew all about Phil, I used to write to Brown about him when I was in Denbigh and my letters were among those stolen from my house in Rachub by the builders and flogged to Carman and the Digger.See the source image

Carman and the Digger also ended up with the letter that I wrote to Brown the evening of the day that my friend Anne was killed by the Gang.

Dr Lauren Qualified as a Top Doc at Manchester University in 1985. Tony and Sadie worked at Manchester University until they relocated to north Wales in 1983; Sadie qualified as a Top Doc at Manchester. As did the genocidal Dr ‘Do Nothing’ Tony Roberts, Clinical Director of Hergest, who boasted the highest suicide rate among his female patients of any Top Doc in England and Wales except for someone in Camden. Do Nothing won that award repeatedly for many years. The Lady Killer qualified from Manchester University in 1984.

I have only recently found letters from Tony Francis to one of Lauren’s partners at Bron Derw, Dr A.R. Vaughan. My memory might be playing up here, but I don’t ever remember seeing Dr Vaughan in his capacity as a Top Doc. I know who he is because some years before I had a part-time job cleaning at that surgery, so I knew who the docs were, but I’m sure that I didn’t ‘see’ Dr Vaughan, it was always Lauren.

Francis wrote to Vaughan on 1 July 1997 and on a number of occasions afterwards. Vaughan must have known that Francis was a dangerous doctor, even I can see that from these letters… Dr A.R. Vaughan was Dr Antony Rathbone Vaughan, who qualified at London University in 1972. Dr Vaughan has voluntarily relinquished his registration with the GMC. So Dr Vaughan’s Good Name Remains and should anyone forward the documents in my possession to the GMC with an accompanying note along the lines of ‘Howz About That Then??’, the GMC will respond with an arsey letter explaining that this ain’t their problem.

On 10 Nov 1998, Tony Francis wrote to Dr Lauren telling her that F and I had decided not to move to Scotland. That was because Sir Idwal Pugh, Mr Big at the Halifax, had ensured that the mortgage offer that had been previously made on a cottage on the Isle of Ling was withdrawn… See previous posts. I didn’t tell Francis why we didn’t move, but then I had no idea that the Gang knew why we didn’t and were the reason for it. They needed us in north Wales – Idwal didn’t block a subsequent mortgage offer for a house on Anglesey – because more prosecutions would be coming our way. See the source imageTiny was dead and remaining irritating witnesses had to be kept under the jackboot.

Once we were living on Anglesey, Drs Richard and Medwyn Williams of Parc Glas Surgery, Bodorgan, ignored the madness at the Hergest Unit, although Medwyn Williams was honest enough to admit that the problems there were so great that patients were not being helped. Richard W. Williams was just unpleasant and not interested in his patients. The last letter that Tony Francis wrote about me to a GP in his capacity as my Top Doc seems to have been to Richard Williams on 12 April 1999. By 9 Aug 2000, Tony Francis had resigned – Tony left his job pretty much as the Waterhouse Report was published, but then Alun Michael (born on Anglesey) decided that he didn’t want to be FM any longer just as the Waterhouse Report was published as discussed in ‘News From Sicily’ – and Sadie had taken over as my Top Doc, Sadie writing to Richard Williams on that date.

Medwyn Williams turned up on the Community Health Council and made a lot of noise about the shite cardiology service in north Wales, but no-one would tackle the maddest and most dangerous, the sodding psychiatrists and social workers. At the time, the Drs Francis lived at Dwyran on Anglesey, not far from Bodorgan. Sadie was the consultant psych providing ‘services’ for Anglesey, so Anglesey GPs certainly knew her. Then there was the havoc in Llangefni, a small rural market town, caused by Class A drugs. Well the Drugs Team was based in Llangefni and ultimately controlled by Dafydd, who lived at Talwrn, some three miles away from Anglesey…

The house that Idwal did allow us to buy was not far from Llangefni and a few weeks after we moved in we began to experience aggro from local people involved with Class A drugs. I never linked it to Dafydd, although I knew why Llangefni was awash with heroin and coke, but I’ve received info recently that the Gang wanted me within reach of Dafydd’s addicts…

ALL local politicians knew about the crime, the chaos and the cause. As did politicians who had originally come from Anglesey but made it big in Tufnell Park. Image result for glenys kinnock images

Dr Richard Wyn Williams qualified at Liverpool University in 1972 and has voluntarily relinquished his registration with the GMC. Dr Medwyn Williams qualified at Liverpool University in 1981 and has also voluntarily relinquished his registration. I am only glad that their Good Names Remain.

The Drs’ Williams Practice Nurse knew about the Hergest, she discussed the chaos presiding there with F.

As for my complaints ‘reiterating issues’, previous posts have blogged in detail about the forged documentation, constant lies, wrongful arrests, fallacious allegations, breaches of confidentiality or simply fantasies about other patients as well as me that were sent to third parties; there was very little let-up. I won’t repeat everything here, readers will have to do a bit of cross referencing to previous posts, but the issues were reiterated because complaints were just NEVER dealt with and very often followed by another arrest of the complainant…

Just a few examples.

On 4 July 1994, Ian Rickard, Senior Nurse at the Hergest Unit, wrote to Tony Francis to ask him if he thought that I should be assessed by a Forensic Psych. I’d been Complaining again, to the MHAC and there was that Brick that I’d thrown through Dafydd’s glass door.

On 6 July 1994, Tony Francis wrote to Rickard and told him that he did not feel that me seeing a forensic psychiatrist would be helpful – after all I’d seen forensic psychiatrists before…See the source image

On 8 July 1994, Peter Howarth, a key member of staff at Bryn Estyn, was sentenced to 10 years for the abuse of boys in care in north Wales.

On 18 July 1994, Dafydd wrote to Ian Rickard, (Location Manager, Senior Nurse) re me ‘screaming abuse’ at Dafydd and ‘interfering with his car’ no less. This letter was stamped as having been received on 20 July 1994.

On 13 Sept 1994, Tom Harney (Harney was a CPN with the Arfon CMHT and was known to Empowered Service Users as ‘the alcoholic alcohol counsellor, who runs that pub near Conwy’; Harney went to work for Dafydd’s charidee CAIS when he retired from the NHS) sent a note to Alun Davies stating that ‘a female who refused to identify herself by name’ had rung complaining about Brandt at 11-15 am. Olwen W. Olwen, Senior Secretary at the Arfon CMHT, added that at 11-40 am ‘a similar phone call’ was made in which the caller accused Jackie Brandt of ‘treating patients like shit’. I can’t remember making these calls but I share the caller’s sentiments. Harney’s note was stamped as being received by Biggus Dickus on 19 Sept 1994.

On 16 Sept 1994 Rob Evans, Assistant Director of Gwynedd Social Services (address Pencadlys, Caernarfon) Image result for dafydd wigley images received from Keith Fearns, a ‘self-explanatory report from Bridget Lloyd, FYI’. Fearns noted to Rob ‘You may feel this has a bearing on our recent discussions and upon the legal position with regard to Mrs Brandt’. Fearns  CC’d it to Janet Hughes, Legal Dept, Social Services.

At the time, no-one would investigate complaints from F, me or indeed other Empowered Service Users, of intimidation from the Arfon CMHT. Brandt had by then perjured herself in the High Court twice, then in Bangor Magistrates Court and even after that tried to have F and I arrested again. Brandt then refused to go to the Hergest Unit if we were there, claiming that she could not be put in Danger. Gwynedd Social Services and their lawyers backed Brandt all the way. It was then stated that F and I were ‘preventing the mental health staff from carrying out their work’. We were not the only people who had made serious complaints about the Arfon Community Thugs and Perjurers, there were many, including about Brandt.Image result for walk on by the stranglers images

On 11 Oct 1994, Dafydd wrote a particularly mad letter to John Mullen regarding my alleged crimes towards Dafydd’s car (the famous Gold Range Rover), telling Mullen that he had asked the MDU to raise an injunction against me. Dafydd CC’d his letter to Keith Thomson, NHS manager. Thomson was not at the top of the tree in those days, but he became CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust a few years later, after his colleague Barry Shingles who was Tipped For The Top ‘committed suicide’ in 1999. Image result for walk on by the stranglers imagesThomson was in a league of his own, as discussed in previous posts. Thomson was a local Bangor boy who went to Friar’s School who spent a time working in NHS management in Stirling, where he got to know Lord Jack McConnell, possibly Prof Alexis Jay and other fun people…Image result for medical defence union slogan images

Dafydd had previously CC’d one of his crazy letter to the MDU, written to Ian Rickard on 7 June 1994, CC’d to Tony Francis and Dr Devakumar as well. The letter was a classic, referring to a ‘disturbance’ caused by me ‘about a month ago’ and the trauma that I had caused Dafydd ‘today’. In the letter, Dafydd reminded everyone that Prof Bluglass had predicted that I would end in a ward for the criminally insane. See the source imageImage result for medical defence union slogan imagesDafydd was certainly busy on 7 June 1994 because he wrote Rickard two letters, one of which addressed Ian Rickard as ‘Manager, Hergest Unit’. Dafydd mentioned his letter to the MDU and that he’d spoken to Sadie Francis; Dafydd’s letter referred to the Drs Francis own dealings with the MDU. This second letter of Dafydd’s to Rickard was CC’d to Sadie, Tony Francis, Devakumar and the er MDU.

What did the MDU think was going on??? Ah well, Bodger and Malcolm were in the midst of the Huge Research Fraud that would unravel during the last months  of 1994, the MDU are a very tolerant organisation re Top Docs.Image result for medical defence union slogan images

On 28 Oct 1994, Alun Davies sent a letter to Dafydd concerning my ‘allegation’ that Dafydd had tried to bribe me in Aug 1987. The letter was CC’d to Tony Francis and Ella Fisk.

On 9 Dec 1994, Laurie Wood – the former manager of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh who had become the Chief Exec of the Clwydian Community Trust – wrote telling me that in 1989 Dafydd had been ‘interviewed’ by the Medical Director of Clwyd Health Authority (Dr M. Jeffries) about the matter of a voluntary patient being kept in a locked ward ‘and stated that similar problems had not occurred since’. Laurie maintained that ‘evidence to support allegations of sexual harassment had not been produced [by me], despite being asked for on several occasions. I do not therefore feel that this should be pursued further’.Image result for professor nigel eastman images

Laurie continued re a blatant breach of confidence about me by Dafydd in public in Nov 1994 was the ‘subject of legal consideration’. Indeed it was, the law was broken ON THE ADVICE OF THE MDUImage result for medical defence union slogan images and everyone just ignored it. Laurie admits that ‘One outstanding matter relates to Dr Brown’s letter dated 6 Feb 1995 which supports the allegation of admission to medical school being used as a bribe to drop complaints in 1987. Mr Alun Davies has written to you on 28 Oct 1994, 15 Dec 1995 with a copy of Dr Brown’s letter and 9 May 1995 asking for comments on this allegation and has received no reply.’See the source image Gypsy Petulengro had been in action once more, readers will notice that NONE of the dates on Laurie’s letter are consistent!! I will return to my documents to double check, but again and again there are clues everywhere that many of the documents in my files, particularly those relating to responses to complaints, were forged and full of errors.

Among the documents is a handwritten letter re my complaints about Dafydd marked ‘For the attention of Mr Simpson’. No other info is provided, who knows who sent it and who Mr Simpson was. Perhaps it was this Mr Simpson.See the source image

On 3 Jan 1995, ‘Dafydd’ wrote a furious letter to Alun Davies after Dafydd had arrived at the Hergest Unit and seen me sitting on a chair in the foyer, telling Davies ‘I find this completely unacceptable’. The letter was signed pp B.M. Jones. The letter was CC’d to Miss Ball, Hempsons; Mr A.D. White (I have no idea who he is); Medical Director, Gwynedd; Medical Director, Clwyd; R. Hefin Davies (Chairman of Gwynedd Community Health Trust).

I suspect that what Dafydd really found completely unacceptable was my graffiti on a notice stating that Dafydd ‘was a sexually abusing git who should have been struck off years ago’. A copy of the graffitied notice was in my files.

Dafydd also wrote to Tony Francis on 3 Jan 1995 and amidst the details of the Trauma to which F and I were subjecting him re phone calls, used the forever cherished sentence ‘…[a call] ‘to my home when no-one spoke but there was a noise obviously intended to simulate a flatus’.See the source image

The Llangefni police were alerted to the Phantom Raspberry Blower giving Dafydd such a fright Image result for male nurse with elderly patient imagesand the call was traced to a phone box Image result for red phone box images in the Bangor area. Dafydd CC’d his letter about the Phantom Raspberry Blower to Hefin Davies, Ann Ball and Hempsons, John Mullen and the Medical Directors of Gwynedd and Clwyd.

It was in the mid 1990s that the Gang declared war on Graham Day, the Senior Sociologist at Bangor University and sociologist Nerys Patterson, who later married Merfyn, was caught in the crossfire. ‘The Guardian’ published an article libelling Graham, stating that he was a racist and was discriminating against Welsh people when he made appointments. Graham received abuse, grief, telephone calls from journos in London making unfounded accusations and was forever a marked man as far as the Gang were concerned. As was Nerys. Or rather a marked woman. See eg. ‘Badlands’ and ‘Murder In Samarkand’.See the source image

Peter Preston See the source imageand the Gang went back a long way… See previous posts.

On 9 Jan 1995, Peter Cook, ex-Footlights and friend of Zany Graham et al as well as the owner of ‘Private Eye’ for years, died while still in his 50s after some years of heavy drinking and not being as productive as some people thought that he should have been. Cook himself assured everyone that he was quite happy…

On 17 Jan 1995, (but dictated on 12 Jan 1995), Alun Davies sent a letter to John Mullen in response to a letter from Dafydd, that was a real gem, even by Dafydd’s standards. Dafydd had gone absolutely apeshit that Pat Capper, a receptionist at the Hergest Unit, had not Warned Him About Me. What had I done? I had no less had a dream in which I had killed Dafydd. Indeed I had, I remember saying to F ‘Christ I dreamt that we murdered Dafydd and we had to get rid of his body’. (The biggest problem in my dream was what we were to do with Dafydd’s blood. There was a lot of it and I didn’t want it splashing everywhere, so I was wondering how we could store it as they do in hospitals, because of course in Rachub we didn’t have the appropriate equipment etc.) Anyway, there was much taking the piss of ‘Ooh Sally dreamt that she murdered DA’ on the part of the patients and F thought it a truly impressive dream. A Meeting was held and Pat Capper – who had heard about the Dream – was absolutely hung out to dry for Not Warning Dafydd.

Pat Capper had however mentioned the saga to Tony Francis, who told Pat and his colleagues that he would carry out an Emergency Assessment of me at home. What was Tony’s Emergency Assessment? It was him crashing around our back garden in the dark that night, shining his torch into our bedroom window. He didn’t knock, we just heard a rumpus in the garden and saw a flashing torch, so we went out and found Tony. F said ‘Oh it’s Tony, do come in’ and he came in and had a cup of tea. Tony Francis didn’t mention anything about Assessments, he just said that he had wondered if I was OK and was passing, so had called in. His main conversation was about our stonework. We lived in a quarryman’s cottage that had previously endured naff rendering and Brown et al had uncovered the stonework underneath. Tony told us that he had recently purchased a second home at Trefor (on the Llyn Peninsula) and his stonework wasn’t as good as ours. So the Dangerous Patients invited the psychiatrist in for tea and biscuits when we found him in our garden, shining a torch into our bedroom window. We later heard that there had been a conversation at the Hergest on the part of other staff along the lines that it was a good job that we didn’t complain about that or Tony could have been in a lot of trouble…

Tony’s adventures in our garden in the dark was another incident that is logged in my files as having occurred on a number of different dates. Careful reading of Dafydd’s rant and demands for Pat Capper’s head on a platter makes it clear that the chronology is as in the above paragraphs.

Since I blogged about this story in earlier posts, I’ve been told that Tony had been in our garden for hours, that he was a voyeur and have been asked do I remember the patient who claimed that Tony had arrived at her room in the Hergest Unit late at night when she was sectioned and exposed himself to her? Yes, she was denounced as mad by everyone and although she and her parents made a very big fuss, the subsequent Investigation cleared Tony. John Mullen et al declared that Tony wasn’t in the building when the Alleged Incident happened. Furthermore the reason for this young woman’s Delusions About Tony was that her ex-boyfriend was called Tony.See the source image

Police, I am not interested in doing the job that you failed to do for years. There were HUNDREDS of complaints about this lot, HUNDREDS. Image result for red phone box imagesWe were all called liars, mad, criminals and some of us were arrested. If you knew that Tony was doing this sort of thing you should have told us, not arrested us. Why is it that now I’ve begun this blog, I’ve found out that so many people Knew? Tony said and did strange things when I first knew him and I didn’t complain because he lied about it when I challenged him and I couldn’t prove that he was lying.See the source image So I complained about matters that I could prove and I was met with a bunch of gangsters, forged documents, perjury etc. See the source imageI’m fed up with corrupt old tossers who have been embarrassed by this blog asking me to Open My Heart and Tell Everyone What Happened. You were NOT interested before OK and now I’m not interested in wasting my time with hypocrites. It is rather more important that someone finds out who is killing witnesses, including Tony Francis, Michael Mansfield’s daughter, Roger Scruton, Neil Innes etc. Because they are being eliminated…

After the panic re My Dream, Alun Davies had A Meeting with Tony Francis, Madeleine Osborn and Pat Capper. Jeremy Corson ‘was also involved in the discussions’.

Madeleine Osborn was a Consultant Psych at the Hergest who scarpered during the Waterhouse Inquiry. I told her that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and I know that the Empowered Service User who ‘alleged’ that Tony exposed himself to her was then handed over to the ‘care’ of Osborn because the Transference was causing problems. See the source imageThis Empowered Service User observed to me ‘I hate Madeleine Osborn and her bloody fuck-me shoes’. Because of these sort of comments, the Empowered Service User was dismissed as a Madwoman who was Obsessed With Sex. No, it was the STAFF who were obsessed with sex, it was why we were taking the piss out of them re such matters. While the staff ponced around talking about Uninhibited Manic Patients – which can happen – they were running a sex abuse ring that had a sideline in child porn and Class A drugs. The psychology students at Bangor University knew about this lot, THEY were laughing at the depraved old psychiatrists and clinical psychologists, but they didn’t commit their comments to paper as the patients did…

People DID know what this lot were doing, it’s how I have received so much extra info since I began the blog. It’s the oldest trick in the book; because some psych patients sometimes have some delusional beliefs, it is a free-for-all. Anyone can do anything to them and it will be attributed to Delusions. Unless the Gang want to frame a subject of gossip/rumour, then the Empowered ones are led up the garden path by the Gang and all utterances of the Delusional ones are suddenly believable. This was what underpinned the False Memory Row, how does anyone know WHAT and WHO to believe when distressed people are being told lies by people who’s word is taken as the unproblematic Truth or are the subject of lies told by those who are telling the Truth, when the Truth tellers are involved in very serious crime?

Madeleine Osborn was one of the Leaders at the Hergest and when I confronted her and said ‘Do you realise that Dr DA Jones is having sex with patients?’, she looked at me over her glasses and said ‘If I had evidence of that I would be APPALLED’. Then she strutted off in her fuck-me shoes.

Madeleine Frances Osborn is currently registered but without a licence to practice. She qualified at Edinburgh University in 1970. Which puts Madeleine and her fuck-me shoes at the centre of the action; Edinburgh was the location of the big ring facilitated by Dafydd’s mates Prof Henry Walton and Sula Wolff, who became multimillionaire collectors of Art Treasures on their NHS salaries. The ring embraced Tam Paton, manager of the Bay City Rollers and was linked to the rock crowd in Glasgow via Tam Paton’s protégé Midge Ure… The psychoanalysis bit in Edinburgh sprung from Ronald Fairbairn and his circle, Gwynne’s contemporary, father of violent, alcoholic, sex abusing Tory MP and lawyer, Sir Nicholas Fairbairn, one-time bedfellow of Esther and Thatch’s Solicitor General for Scotland.See the source image

Take a long, hard look at the Meaning Of Those Shoes:

Ronald Fairbairn was central figure in the development of the object relations theory of psychoanalysis. Fairbairn’s Psychoanalytical Studies of Personality (1952) is a collection of papers previously published in different reviews. The book is divided into three parts, the first being mostly theoretical, the second one clinical, and the third one concerning more general problems. The first four articles contain the largest body of the most innovative Fairbairn concepts. The table of contents entails:

  • Part One: An Object-Relations Theory of the Personality
  1. Chapter I: Schizoid Factors in the Personality (1940)
  2. Chapter II: A Revised Psychopathology of the Psychoses and Psychoneuroses (1941)
  3. Chapter III: The Repression and the Return of Bad Objects (with special reference to the ‘War Neuroses) (1943)
  4. Chapter IV: Endopsychic Structure Considered in Terms of Object-Relationships (1944)
  5. Chapter V: Object-Relationships and Dynamic Structure (1946)
  6. Chapter VI: Steps in the Development of an Object-Relations Theory of the Personality 1 (1949)
  7. Chapter VII: A Synopsis of the Development of the Author’s Views Regarding the Structure of the Personality (1951) See the source image
  • Part Two: Clinical Papers
  1. Chapter I: Notes on the Religious Phantasies of a Female Patient (1927)
  2. Chapter II: Features in the Analysis of a Patient with a Physical Genital Abnormality (1931)
  3. Chapter III: The Effect of a King’s Death Upon Patients Undergoing Analysis (1936)See the source image
  • Part Three: Miscellaneous Papers
  1. Chapter I: The Sociological Significance of Communism Considered in the Light of Psychoanalysis (1935)
  2. Chapter II: Psychology as a Prescribed and as a Proscribed Subject (1939)
  3. Chapter III: The War Neuroses—Their Nature and Significance (1943)
  4. Chapter IV: The Treatment and Rehabilitation of Sexual Offenders (1946)See the source image

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

Dafydd’s letter to John Mullen of 21 Dec 1994 following the business of My Dream excels. Dafydd cannot convey his ‘dismay and disbelief’. He reminds Mullen that on 11 Oct 1994, Dafydd experienced a ‘threatening intrusion’ by F and me ‘into my office’ ‘this very disturbing episode which occurred’. Dafydd ‘was appalled to understand Sally was ignored with a possibility that I might have been put in hazard. I had that very morning replied to a letter from Messrs Hempsons Solicitors concerning an injunction application in total ignorance of the events occurring that I replied there was no problem.’

Until I had that Dream about murdering Dafydd!!Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpeg‘It was Dr Osborn at 6 pm which [sic] informed me of the event’. (My Dream.) She of the fuck-me shoes asked Dafydd if he wanted the police involved. ‘I wished them to be informed because they are aware of the menace which [I] poses to me and they are alert to any emergency call that I may make from my home.’

HILARIOUS!! So that’s why dissenters have been sending me transcripts of the piss-taking calls that F and I made to Dafydd, asking me if I remember them! Dafydd’s phone was Monitored Lest I Threaten Him, ready for the MDU and Forensic Experts to swing into action and cart me off to live with Mr Savile. Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpegWhen I realised that someone had recorded our calls, I knew that they would have also recorded all the other calls to Dafydd from Peter Morrison et al, asking Dafydd to rescue them from police stations etc.

Dafydd’s letter continues to grumble about my ‘increased activity’ and the ‘possible menace it caused’. Dafydd was told that Tony Francis would be visiting me later that evening to Assess me. He ended up in the garden and then came in for a cup of tea. ‘It appears that there were doubts raised whether I should be informed at all of this occurrence. [My Dream.] I found this appalling in the light of past events. I would therefore explicitly request that you ascertain what discussion took place as to whether I should be warned or not and who expressed reluctance on this point.’ Dafydd emphasises that My Dream was a ‘situation of potential hazard’ and bangs on at length about his concern that I do not always seem to be accompanied by Clinical Members Of Staff when he is in the building, on occasions he has noted that mere Administrative Members of Staff were accompanying me and this could not have been right. Dafydd CC’d his letter to the Medical Director of the NHS Trust and to the Chairman Of The Unit (whoever that might have been).

So that is what happened when a receptionist heard my friends joking about me dreaming that I’d murdered Dafydd and did not ring Dafydd, the police, Uncle Tom Cobley and all immediately to Report a Dangerous Incident.

This is why the whole of the NHS in north Wales wet themselves in terror as we yelled at them ‘He is shagging the patients you idiots, he has threatened us, he has hit us, he has joked about us having sex with animals, DO SOMETHING ABOUT HIM’.

They just would not investigate any complaints about Dafydd, yet they entertained this utter idiocy from him. Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpegI await the MDU’s explanation… Image result for medical defence union slogan images

On 15 Feb 1995, Sharon Thompson – then Alun Davies’s secretary – on behalf of Alun Davies, sent Dafydd a copy of the letter that Dr Brown, a Lecturer in Psychology at Aston Business School, had written re Dafydd’s attempt to bribe me in Aug 1987.

Brown was unlawfully dismissed from his job at Aston in July 1995, days after Bing Spear and Sir Peter Morrison were found dead.

On 19 Feb 1995, Ronald Fairbairn’s son Nicholas, Esther’s old bedfellow, died of drink as they used to say in Somerset, as opposed to ‘alcohol related causes’. See the source image

On 5 March 1995, Viv Stanshall, friend of Zany Graham, Neil Innes et al – Viv had been diagnosed with manic depression years earlier and had been an in-patient in a psych hospital in the Good Old Days, so had witnessed much – spontaneously combusted at home in bed. Viv was alone in the house at the time.

On 16 March 1995, John Mullen wrote to Dafydd re my complaint of a breach of confidence. Mullen tells Dafydd that he will be ‘most grateful for the information in your latest letter from the MDU’.Image result for medical defence union images

On 7 April 1995, Mullen wrote to Dafydd to tell him that ‘We have allocated funds to improve the personal attack alarm system in the Hergest Unit’. Indeed, Ron Evans the crooked Gwynedd CC solicitor thought up the ruse of £20k being needed to Protect Dafydd From Me, I have the documentation! Dafydd could not produce one scrap of evidence that he was in danger from me or anyone else, but letters flew back and forth about that Brick – the one that the MDU knew was not my doing – and the MDU Demanded That The NHS Protect Their Client.

On 17 June 1995, Gwynne and Dafydd’s old mate David Ennals, one of the Bigguses who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring for decades, died suddenly and unexpectedly of pancreatic cancer. (There were a number of Insider deaths throughout 1995, I’m just mentioning a few in this post.)

On 21 June 1995 I received a letter from Sharon Thompson, on behalf of Alun Davies, that was CC’d to John Mullen, referring to my letter of 14 June 1995 re Dafydd sexually abusing patients. There was no investigation.

My former boss Malcolm Pearce of St George’s was struck off by the GMC in the week of the 21 June 1995. Bodger, Malcolm’s partner in crime re the research fraud, gave evidence against Malcolm and wasn’t even disciplined. No-one dared, Bodger was not just one of the Mr Bigs in the Westminster Paedophile Ring, Bodger was mates with Royal Docs and friends of Royals. Malcolm was kept sweet by finding him a job in a barristers Chambers advising on er medical negligence, See the source imagelest he ever was tempted to grass anyone upSee the source image in return for dosh… The research fraud had been published by the British Journal of Obs and Gynae, a journal of which Bodger was the Editor, in 1994 at the height of the headlines re Peter Howarth’s imprisonment, when the MHAC were refusing to investigate the complaint that F and I made about Dafydd, when the brick was planted and Dafydd rushed off to the MDU and subsequently Liverpool High Court. See ‘Now Then…’See the source image

Malcolm Pearce Trained/worked at Leeds, which was from where the Ysbyty Gwynedd Consultant Gynaecologist Simon Leeson (see previous posts and comments) was working before Simon turned up in Gwynedd in the 1990s. Leeson Qualified at Manchester University in 1984 a la Do Nothing. At Leeds, Leeson worked with some real scumbags, including the Top Doc who gave a glowing reference to a gynaecologist who later starred in a major scandal re numerous botched operations on women; it had been known for years that this Top Doc was dangerous but no-one at Leeds raised concerns. Leeson is very likely to have known Malcolm, because even after Malcolm relocated to St George’s, he was a regular visitor to his old mates in Leeds and was Proud To Be A Northerner in the poncy southern elite circles of St George’s.

Jimmy Shroff, a junior doc in Bodger’s team when I was at St George’s, had previously been a trainee GP in D.G.E. Wood’s practice after Training at Bart’s. Jimmy ended his days – he died youngish of pancreatic cancer, unexpectedly in the summer of 2004 – as a Consultant Obs and Gyae in Leeds. Jimmy’s widow works for the Betsi Board. See previous posts; I have erroneously spelt Jimmy’s name as Schroff in some earlier posts. He was to be precise Jimmy Foden Shroff.

Two Top Docs who worked with Simon Leeson at Ysbyty Gwynedd in 1997/98 did not know their arses from their elbows – I now have documentation to demonstrate this. One was Ashok Damodar Harshey, ‘Associate Specialist’ to Simon. Ashok Qualified at Nagpur University in 1976 and has voluntarily relinquished his registration with the GMC, as has a Sheila Harshey, who qualified at Indore in 1972. A Ravi Harshey who qualified at Nottingham University in 2008 remains on the Medical Register. All Top Docs who read documentation compiled by Harshey knew how clueless and dangerous he was, including Simon, Tony Francis, Dr Lauren and Dr Antony Vaughan. There will have been many more… Mair Martin at the Drug Information Dept consulted by Harshey et al at Ysbyty Gwynedd will also have known how bloody hopeless they were but for some reason Mair wasn’t providing them with the best info that was available at the time. Why was that then Mair?

Previous posts have discussed Old Favourite John Chawner, an Obs and Gynae Consultant who cluttered up Bangor in the Good Old Days, when newborns were abducted from women as a result of collusion with Dafydd and Gwynne – and not just in the case of Unmarried Mothers either – and when all women in north Wales were unlawfully refused NHS terminations for any reason, but were referred on demand by the Top Docs – if of course the women paid – to the Private Abortionist in Chester who was so dangerous that Warnings Were Issued To Students who might end up in his hands (see eg. ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf!). Chawner was in business during the years of Peak Paedophilia and was a colleague of the Obs and Gynae Consultant O.V. Jones, who doubled up as a member of UCNW Council and served as Vice-President of UCNW for some years (see ‘Meet The Gwerin!’). O.V. was busy governing UNCW when Gwynne was sitting in the Student Health Centre and when D.G.E. Wood was putting a great deal of business in the direction of the dangerous Private Abortionist in Chester…

Chawner is now very elderly indeed and has voluntarily relinquished his licence to practice but makes a nuisance of himself whenever possible. His last splash was in 2015 when Chawner and other Retired Top Docs presented a United Front in the Daily Post maintaining that the Ladies Of Gwynedd would not tolerate some new-fangled idea that was being proposed. Chawner, the Ladies of Gwynedd loathed you and your mates, but they didn’t dare speak out in public that you had abducted their babies, forced them into the hands of a dangerous private abortionist, trafficked them into sex work or sexually/physically assaulted them because they lived in an environment in which you and your criminal pals ran north Wales and they knew what would be coming their way – and the way of anyone who dared support them – if they blew the whistle on your charnel house.

Chawner was still working at Ysbyty Gwynedd in 1995 and two of his Accomplices from that era, his Senior Registrars Geraldine McSweeney and David Chui, are at present working as Top Docs. Geraldine, who Qualified at the National University of Ireland in 1983, is currently a Gynae Consultant employed by Hywel Dda Health Board and is based in Carmarthen. David Kwan Chi Chui Qualified at Leicester University in 1984. David stars on the East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust:

Profile: Mr Chui is a Consultant Gynaecologist with over 16 years experience. His subspecialty interest is in Reproductive Medicine including treatments of IVF and other advanced assisted conception therapies.

Professional Memberships:

  • Member of BMA
  • Member of British Fertility Society
  • Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

David sees Private Patients too. He advertises his presence at the Esperance Hospital, Eastbourne and at Longevity Wellness in Monchique on the Algarve as well! So like his old colleague D.G.E. Wood, David’s Gone To The Med. Interestingly enough, although I’m not a globetrotter, I do know Monchique. Back in my days as an Empowered Service User, when Brown used to give/lend F and I the money for cheap off-season holidays, we went to Monchique repeatedly, because in winter it becomes very cheap and it’s warm and there are nice rural bits. We used to go to Monchique during the mid-1990s… The Hergest Unit knew because F and I used to chat to our friends about it and F used to visit the YG pharmacy to stock up on Tablets when we were going away.

If David of the Med wants to let us all know why he never raised concerns about the organised abuse and other criminality facilitated by his colleagues in Gwynedd, a lot of us would be interested to hear the Lame Excuses. Should David Chui wish to send me a pompous letter from the MDU of a How Very Dare You nature, I’d welcome the opportunity to Share Documentation with David, the MDU and anyone else who wishes to go down the How Very Dare You route, because I really do think some answers are needed. 

F liked Portugal so much that he used to tell Tony Francis and Ella that he’d like to live there. It was me who kept saying to F ‘We can’t move to Portugal, we haven’t got heaps of dosh to sustain ourselves in Portugal for the rest of our lives… ‘ Tony Francis, Ella et al knew that F is someone who lives a much riskier existence than me and if he thought that moving to Portugal would be a nice thing to do, he’d do it…See the source image

Malcolm Pearce had a series of wives/partners – as well as all the additional more casual Ugandan discussions – a number of whom were Top Docs and all of whom knew about the very unacceptable activities at St George’s. Malcolm caught Hepatitis when I worked for him and the junior docs were entertained when it was attributed to an ‘unhygienic person’ with whom Malcolm had ‘come into contact’ when he had been to Portugal for the weekend…

Dafydd used to hold Clinics in Yorkshire, in particular at the Queen’s Hotel in Leeds of all places. Savile used to hang out there, it was where his body Lay In State after he died. I found out about Dafydd’s Clinics at the Queen’s Hotel, Leeds in the late 1980s and I took the piss at length. I realised that whatever Dafydd was doing it would not be Holding A Clinic in any mainstream sense, but I didn’t twig as to Savile’s involvement. See the source imageSo a lot of NHS staff in north Wales knew that I knew about the Queen’s Hotel Clinics and I even rang Dafydd when he was there on one occasion. The security services knew that I knew about those Clinics as well.See the source image

On 26 June 1995, John Redwood See the source imagestepped down as Welsh Secretary and was succeeded by David Hunt, the Gang’s very old, loyal friend. Hunt was known to be sleeping in his office during the few days that he served as Welsh Secretary in the summer of 1995, such was the pressure of work and matters that needed to be attended to.

On 5 July 1995, David Hunt’s few days as Welsh Secretary ended and he was succeeded by The Hague. Image result for william hague images Also on 5 July 1995, Virginia Bottomley – a former psychiatric social worker (educated at St Paul’s Girls’ School and the LSE, both establishments favoured by Lord Gnome’s family – who, along with her husband Peter, had numerous links to the Gang dating back years (see previous posts), stood down as Health Secretary and Stephen Dorrell succeeded her in that post. Bottomley had been lurking around in the Dept of Health for years, she had been Minister of State in the Dept, 28 Oct 1989-9 April 1992 and was then appointed Secretary of State. As Minister of State, Virginia was responsible for providing Community Care Facilities for psych patients. She very obviously did not do this… Bottomley’s numerous influential relations include her aunt, Camden Labour big wig Baroness Peggy Jay – mother of Dr Death’s mate Peter Jay, mother-in-law of Margaret, Sunny Jim’s daughter – and wife of Baron Douglas Jay, Richard Crossman’s mate and Labour big wig in Harold Wilson’s era. The Jays and Callaghans were on board with the Gang.Official portrait of Baroness Bottomley of Nettlestone crop 2.jpg

By 5 July 1995, Dafydd had ‘retired’ clutching the contract to provide substance abuse services for north Wales along with an agreement that none of the very serious complaints against him would be followed up. See ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’

In retirement, Dafydd vastly expanded his business and although patients were told that he now had no NHS work at all, in the forthcoming years, most of Dafydd’s ‘private work’ was commissioned by the statutory services, including the NHS. The world was also told that Denbigh had ‘closed down’ in the summer of 1995. It hadn’t, there were still patients there in 2000 and maybe beyond; no-one has ever provided transparent answers to matters Denbigh.

On 5 July 1995, Alun Davies wrote to me, CC’ing the letter to Ella Fisk, re my phone call to Davies on 4 July 1995 asking to meet Davies; Davies told me in his letter that he still hadn’t received replies to his letters to Dafydd re my complaints, so Davies had written to Dr M. Jeffries to ‘expedite matters’.

On 6 July 1995, ‘Alun Davies’ wrote a letter to Dr Jeffries, Medical Director, Clwydian Community Health Trust, but the letter was signed pp S Thompson. (Sharon Thompson, Davies’s secretary.) The letter states that Davies has written to Dafydd several times re my outstanding complaints but has received no response.

Bing Spear died on 9 July 1995. Peter Morrison was found dead in his house on 13 July 1995. Tiny Rowland Passed Over on 25 July 1995. Brown was sacked by Aston University in the same month; he received the letter at the end of July, but offering to pay him until Sept 1995.

On 31 Aug 1995, Alun Davies wrote to Ann Ball of the MDU solicitors Hempsons, at 75 Mosley Street, Manchester, telling Ann that he wanted my files back asap ‘which were sent to you by this office’.

I don’t know whether to flag up the breach of confidence or the thousands of documents that the MDU read – and indeed compiled themselves – that were evidence of such serious crime.Image result for medical defence union slogan images

A letter dated 6 Sept 1995 from Dr Jeremy Corson (then the Medical Director for Gwynedd Community Health Trust) to me confirmed that Clwyd NHS held Dafydd’s contract – people complaining about Dafydd were always bounced between Gwynedd and Clwyd, both refusing to accept responsibility – the letter was CC’d to Jeffries, Mullen and Davies. My complaints were still not dealt with…

On 5 Dec 1995, Sir Charles Evans, Everest Hero, Principal of UCNW, 1958-84 and mate of Gwynne and Dafydd, died.

On 19 Dec 1995, John Mullen wrote to me regarding my complaints. I was not told that ‘silent copies’ of Mullen’s letter had been sent to Dafydd, Jeremy Corson, Alun Davies and a Dr J Gib [rest of name illegible] of the MDU.Image result for medical defence union slogan images

On 17 Jan 1996, John Mullen wrote to me re my letters of 2 Sept 1995 and 21 Dec 1995 in which I had discussed physical assaults on me by NHS staff and sexual harassment from Dafydd. No, there was no investigation, but Mullen CC’d his letter to Alun Davies and sent a ‘silent copy’ to Dafydd…

The names of those refusing to investigate very serious complaints throughout the 1990s remained the same. Jeremy Corson, Robin Holden, Nerys Owen, Hefin Davies, John Mullen, Alun Davies. Keith Thomson and Martin Jones were moving up the ranks from within gathering the dirt on everyone as they went, to become the Dons of the NHS in north Wales post-millennium.

Jeremy David Corson qualified in 1979 from Bristol University. Just like Professor Nigel Eastman of St George’s AND Gray’s Inn, Prof Eastman the International Expert who flies to the US, South Africa etc to provide his Learned Opinion.Image result for professor nigel eastman images Jeremy’s name remains on the GP register and on the Specialist register ie. Public Health. Previous posts have covered Jeremy’s career in some depth; I’m delighted to report that Jeremy is still in Cardiff running his Private Consultancy, Corson Diaz Consulting Ltd, that Jeremy established in June 2001:

Public Health Consultancy and GP Locums for the last 18 years, UK and International. Previously 22 year NHS career including Director of Public Health and Trust Medical Director.

Jeremy will be raking it in providing the locum GPs across Wales in the GP desert that Wales now is, every even vaguely good GP having run screaming in terror as far away as they can because of the activities of Jeremy and all those whom he refused to take action against in the 1990s. The Pink Blancmange is quite happy for Jeremy to consume such a large proportion of the Welsh Gov’ts budget, it is a symbiotic relationship. Corson concealed the crap with which the Pink Blancmange was deeply involved himself and now the wobbly one is FM, Corson gets commissioned! The wobbly one has exactly the same business relationship with Dafydd and Lucille via their charidee CAIS.

And of course Corson knows Biggus Eastman Image result for professor nigel eastman imagesand he knows that Biggus received that letter from Robin Jacobson stating that Dafydd had described me as attractive and seductive, that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and that Jacobson thought that Tony Francis was too. Jacobson also received information that I had Harassed an Eminent GP, who was also ready to supply Springfield with Evidence about me. Who was this eminent GP? D.G.E. Wood, who Qualified at Bristol University some 10 years before Corson and Biggus Eastman, who’s dad was an Eminent Doctor in Bristol.

Oh dear oh dear oh dear, if Jeremy Corson Falls, it’ll be the biggest game of dominoes that British medicine has ever seen… Indeed World Medicine dominoes, Paul Bowden, Bluglass and Biggus are International. But then Gwynne was the Royal Lobotomist.

Neither must we forget another Esteemed St George’s Trained Top Doc and member of Gray’s Inn.See the source image

Corson’s equivalent in Clwyd during those happy years, Dr M. Jeffries, I’m fairly sure is Dr Mervyn Jeffries who has voluntary relinquished his registration. Mervyn must have been as old as the hills, he qualified in 1953 from Dublin. The other possibility is that M. Jeffries was Milton Jeffries, who also qualified in 1953 in Ireland and has voluntarily relinquished his registration. The north Wales mental health services employed a good number of people from Ireland, which is worrying when one considers what the ‘services’ were doing rather than looking after their patients.

In 1995, Hefin Davies, Chair of Gwynedd Community Health Trust, was merely Hefin Davies MBE. By Oct 2004, when Hefin was Chair of the NW Wales NHS Trust, he was Hefin Davies  MBE OStJ JP and Deputy Lieutenant.

John Mullen, CEO of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust, was John Mullen MSc, MHSM, Dip HSM. Yet he didn’t know what to do with a number of letters clearing stating that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and providing dates, venues and circumstances of the offences…Image result for professor nigel eastman imagesSee the source image

Names Of More Witnesses:

A Sharon Price wrote to Alun Davies on 29 Sept 1994, telling him that ‘a call had been received’ from me on 28 Sept 1994, complaining about ‘Bridget treating patients like shit’. Sharon’s letter was CC’d to Rob Evans, who as any fule kno, was managing one of the best Community Mental Health Services in Europe.

Dr Ian Williams, Tony Francis’s SHO, who wrote a letter to Dr Nickson about me on 27 Oct 1994, days before Dafydd obtained his injunction by banging on about a brick that had been planted.

 

At the time of my first meeting with David Mawson -Sep/Oct 1991?? – the meetings took place in Alwyn’s office, me being so Dangerous that Gwynedd Health Authority wouldn’t let me onto their premises – Dr David Mawson DPM FRC Psych was still based in Liverpool, but not Ashworth. He was working as an independent consultant, using the address of the Cunard Building.See the source image

12 Nov 1991 – Mawson wrote to Dr Paul Nickson…

On 17 Dec 1991 Mawson wrote to Tony Francis. Negotiations had begun, kicked off by David Mawson observing that these consultations with a Private Doc like Mawson were costing Gwynedd NHS a fortune and there was no need for it, after all I wasn’t dangerous and Dr Mawson would be happy to advise Francis that I actually had Schizophrenia and could easily be Treated by Francis, if only Gwynedd NHS would stop refusing to treat me. I had been admitted to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Oct/Nov 1991 with serious depression, but that was only because my neighbour had rung the Bethesda GPs and said surely this tale that I was telling about being refused all NHS treatment and arrested if I went on NHS premises couldn’t be true…

OF COURSE IT WASN’T, OOH NO WE NEVER DID!!! NO, NO, THE NHS DOESN’T DO THAT… My neighbour was witnessing the whole mess, so IN FRONT OF MY NEIGHBOUR, the NHS was overcome with Caringness and I was admitted to Ysbyty Gwynedd. David Mawson was MD at a distance but I didn’t realise that another Cunning Plan was underway; See the source imagebeing Paranoid/Suspicious/Criminally Insane and Hostile with Bipolar Disorder/Schizophrenia/Personality Problems/Sometimes Borderline, Image result for paul bowden imagesSee the source imageSee the source image

I believed the Drs Francis when they told me that peace had broken out, apologised for all the High Court cases and assured me that it had all been a terrible misunderstanding.

On 14 Feb 1992, Tony Francis wrote to Mawson, who was by then based at Stockton Hall, Stockton-on-the-Forest, Yorkshire. Stockton Hall is a medium secure psych unit that at present is run by the Priory Group, commissioned by the NHS. Robin Jacobson left Springfield to work for the Priory Group, as did many of his colleagues. Stockton Hall was categorised by the CQC as ‘requiring improvement’. That can only mean that it is dreadful, the CQC consistently under-rates the degree of danger and chaos in ‘services’. Sir Robert Francis QC has sat on the CQC.

Name Of Another Witness: Dr R Kumar, Registrar to Tony Francis, wrote to Nickson about me on 12 May 1992. Dr Kumar was one of the junior docs whom Francis treated dreadfully, Angels used to joke about Francis screaming and yelling at the junior docs. One much-enjoyed anecdote was that of Francis yelling ‘Where’s that bloody house officer?’ and beginning to throw the chairs around, when a little voice piped up saying ‘I have been a registrar for three months now’. Dr Kumar I presume…See the source image

My documents state that my next admission to Ysbyty Gwynedd (with Francis as my Top Doc) was on 25/3/92; I was discharged on 5/5/92. Peace had never really broken out, it was just non-stop aggro, with various NHS staff doing a Good Cop Bad Cop routine and at the same time pursuing their own civil wars with each other.

Previous posts have provided many details and names of the Guilty over the years of me being an Empowered Service User, so I’d like to move onto the names that I have seen on the latest perusal of documents that I haven’t mentioned in previous posts or flagged up as much as I should.

New Name: A letter written to Alun Davies on 8 Dec 1994 from G. Greg?? (signature hard to decipher) of Clwyd NHS states that after Bluglass ignored the Gang’s serious criminality in July 1989 and busied himself with trivia, one of those at the time to whom the matter was Referred for Action was Dr J.L. Williams, CAMC Of Clwyd.

Now for further names on documents compiled under the reign of Keith Thomson as CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust, after I had been assaulted by staff, wrongfully arrested etc. It should be remembered that Sister Hutt was Welsh Gov’t Minister for Health and Social Services, 12 May 1999-2005. The Secretary of State for Wales, 28 July 1999-24 Oct 2002 (throughout the Waterhouse Inquiry and the aftermath) was Paul Murphy; Murphy was succeeded by Peter Hain, 24 Oct 2002-24 Jan 2008.

‘Mary’, Dr Neil Davies’s secretary at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd was mentioned on a note written by Sandra Phillips, Alun Davies’s side-kick, on 21 March 2003.

Caroline Frain (Complaints Manager at NW Wales NHS Trust) wrote to Sandra Phillips on 20 Dec 2002 regarding the letter from my solicitor highlighting the many laws and policies that had been flouted. Frain tells Phillips that ‘Trish [Gaskell, the NW Wales NHS Trust solicitor] reckons we should just send her a copy of the Finance Conduct Policy, even if it isn’t relevant’. My solicitor AND the Mental Health Act Commission had written to Phillips and Thomson and this was the Trust’s idea of addressing such a serious complaint.

Liars who were part of the picture, as demonstrated by my documentation, include Patrick Crossfield, ‘Senior Nurse on call’ on the night that I was assaulted in Hergest by four staff and was stopped from contacting the police. Crossfield was rung and told that I had been assaulted and was asking for the police. The Trust told me and my solicitor throughout that Crossfield was not aware that I had made a complaint of assault. He was, it was his advice not to give me access to a phone to ring the police. Alun Davies wrote to Caroline Frain on 4 Dec 2002, confirming that Crossfield was Senior Nurse on call. Everyone had access to the documents demonstrating this, including Rita Thomas, the Trust’s Claims Co-ordinator, Litigation.

Sheila V. Owen, Assistant Complaints Manager and Secretary to Investigating Officer, Nursing and Quality, wrote a memo to Alun Davies on 3 Jan 2003 and CC’d it to Patricia Gaskell, Caroline Frain, Sandra Phillips. The subject of Owen’s memo was another patient who made a very similar complaint to mine about some of the same people. NHS staff asked each other how I found out about this patient’s complaint and how long I’d known her. The Trust paid her off eventually after she had them bang to rights on so much law-breaking, wrongful arrest etc…

Sue Turner, Administration Officer, Complaints and Deaths, Mental Health Act Commission, wrote a letter to Patricia Gaskell on 14 Jan 2003. The MHAC stopped responding to me as Thomson and Gaskell flouted more and more policies and legislation. The MHAC subsequently told me that they had lost my file; copies of cosy letters between  the MHAC and the NW Wales NHS Trust are in my medical file…

Keith Thomson had written to Sue Turner on 19 Dec 2002 at Maid Marian House, 56 Hounds Gate, Nottingham.

On 10 April 2003, Paramjit Thamu, Administrator, Complaints Unit, MHAC, wrote to Gaskell; Thamu mentions her phone call to Gaskell on 27 March 2003.

E mails dated April 2003 from Caroline Frain to Jeff Pye, Head of Information Management and Technology for the Trust, demonstrate that Jeff Pye had been alerted to an e mail that I had sent to the Complaints Dept re a member of staff on duty that night among the group of those who assaulted me. My e mail had been read by Colin Ashton, Senior Engineer – Web Dept, who took the e mail out of circulation because of the allegation of assault and alerted those higher up the food chain. It was noted that my e mail was sent from my Bangor University e mail address. I’d just begun my PhD.

The Occupational Therapy student who was forced to make a statement to the police about me claiming that I’d threatened him was Michael Williams. Michael had spoken to me on the phone after I was banned from talking to the Hergest Whistleblower; the transcript of the call shows a friendly call, me upset, Michael trying to cheer me up. I was arrested hours later, charged with threatening to kill Alun Davies on 2 Nov 2002 and bail conditions ordered me not to contact Michael, Alun Davies, Alison Parry (the violent Angel who was Taliesin Ward Manager) or Sadie. The signature of Sgt P.L. Jones is on the paperwork. The case was scheduled to be heard by Bangor Magistrates on 11 Nov 2002; it eventually went to the Crown Court, but collapsed on first day of the trial due to the perjury. Michael Williams had left north Wales by then, I never saw him again.

Taliesin Ward staff involved in ‘restraining’ me on 29 Oct 2002 who’s names were kept from me and thus not mentioned in earlier posts include Peter Davies, Mark Colclough, Hannah Roberts, Nicola Griffiths. No-one would give patients their full names and just declared themselves to be ‘nurses’, although on some shifts there weren’t any qualified nurses on duty, it was 100% healthcare assistants (HCAs). The wards were being run illegally and Thomson knew it. All staff knew that patients were being assaulted and that staff were being told to perjure themselves.

Dr Stephen Parry, on 28 Oct 2002, documented that I assaulted a Dr Steven. This probably meant that I had ‘assaulted’ Dr Stephen Parry; the liars and perjurers compiling the records constantly misspelt their own colleagues names, used abbreviations/nicknames etc. Countersigned by Lena Henry (Senior Nurse, Manager of the Hergest) on 30 Oct 2002.

Jane Jones, HCA, on 26 Oct 2002 documented ‘violence’ on my part. Countersigned by Lena Henry on 30 Oct 2002.

Sian Ruth Lloyd, Angel, documented ‘verbal threats and aggression’ on 25 Oct 2002. Countersigned by Alison Parry on 28 Oct 2002 and Lena Henry on 30 Oct 2002.

Gwen Bethan Roberts, HCA, documented ‘verbal abuse and hostile behaviour’ on 25 Oct 2002. Countersigned by Alison Parry on 28 Oct 2002 and Lena Henry 30 Oct 2002.

Michael Davies OT Student (the same person as Michael Williams OT student!) documented ‘verbal violence’ on 24 Oct 2002, but also noted that I was ‘suicidal and light hearted and reflective’. Who on earth was giving Michael Williams/Davies his orders?? No wonder they didn’t even know his name. Michael’s Manager JE ‘Jan’ Roberts countersigned this on 24 Oct 2002. It was further countersigned by Mark Colclough on 25 Oct 2002 and Lena Henry on 30 Oct 2002.

As Lena went through all these ‘incidents’ days later and signed them off, it was documented that the police must now be called. Just to be sure, another incident witnessed by Laurel Knight was signed by Alison Parry on 23 Oct 2002 and countersigned by Nurse Manager Mark Colclough on 25 Oct 2002.

That’ll be the Laurel Knight who began crying when she saw me in Morrisons and asked me not to tell anyone that I’d stopped to chat with her because she was being threatened by NHS Senior Managers.

Dr Antonio Portoles was one of my Victims in one documented incident. Dr Antonio stabbed himself to death in the heart some nine years later, in his bedroom, while his children ate breakfast downstairs. Dr Antonio believed that he had cancer and had been going home to Spain for consultations because he didn’t trust British docs. Kenny Midence, clinical psychologist, told Dr Antonio’s patients that it wasn’t a ‘real suicide’, Dr Antonio was a ‘hypochondriac’. It was probably more accurately described as a murder. At least they couldn’t pin it on me by then.

After the incident with Dr Antonio in 2002 – Alison Parry and others jumped upon me from a height and pinned me to the ground because I was ‘in Dr Antonio’s personal space’ – it was documented that I was arrested for breach of the peace.

Now Then. Paperwork just prior to that is really interesting. On 28 Aug 2002 it was documented that I had committed ‘arson’. The original form documenting my arson was signed by C.J. Jones, who was described as an Acting F grade Angel. Porter Kevin Roberts was mentioned as a witness to my arson. Because I hadn’t committed arson, at a later date, the documentation was altered by Anne Ward (Senior Nurse) and signed on 5 Sept 2002. Anne had put a line through all the previous names and categories of ‘risk’ on the original paperwork, replaced the names with hers and the title Ward Manager and systematically upgraded all the risk categories. ‘Severity of incident’ was amended by Anne from 1 to 4/5; ‘Likelihood’ was amended from 2 to 2/3; ‘Rating’ was amended from 2 to 8-15.

Nice one Anne, preparing the landscape for the forthcoming arrest of me for threatening to kill Alun Davies!!

Dear old Lena Henry countersigned Anne’s forgery on 6 Sept 2002.

My arson was committed when Paul Murphy was Secretary of State for Wales. By the time that documentation was being forged re my arson and other matters, Peter Hain had arrived on duty.

The police were called after my arson, but as the police found that I hadn’t committed arson or indeed committed any offence at all, they refused to arrest me. Just as well that Anne and Lena forged all the documentation after the police refused to play ball. G. Jones and Philip Jones, Fire Officer, also witnessed me not committing arson.

The arson came hot on the heels of my previous crime on 8 July 2002, when I ‘attempted to break down the door of the junior doctors room’. This crime was documented by G. Roberts and Dr Do Nothing Roberts and CC’d to All Junior Doctors, the Hergest Whistleblower, Eifion Williams, Sheena Knowles, Derlwyn Roberts and the Porters.

Sheena Knowles was the highly aggressive Nurse Manager of the Hergest Unit who told me that she had a PhD in Psychology although she didn’t. Sheena Knowles was quite mad – in the words of a polite colleague, ‘seriously ill’ – and on one occasion sized up to hit me. The Hergest Whistleblower saw it coming and got me out of the way… Sheena arrived at work some weeks later, began crying and couldn’t stop and had to be driven home by a colleague. She never returned to work. Lena Henry was then appointed to Sheena’s job! Lena had been a Student Angel at Denbigh in 1986…

Sheena Knowles was bloody awful, but her appointment indicated the scale of the problem even in 2002. No rational person would work at the Hergest and all New Blood a la Knowles, had nervous breakdowns after a few weeks. The only staff who stayed were Of The Gang. No-one else could cope with working with the Gang, they had breakdowns and killed themselves yet there was no Inquiry.

Derlwyn Roberts, I’m fairly sure was the Manager sent in to deal with the Arfon CMHT, in particular Keith Fearns, only Derlwyn went native and joined them. Of course he did, they were gangsters, people either joined them or had breakdowns and were found dead.

The document re the Circulation List after I attempted to break down the door of the junior docs room was signed by Susan J. Owen, Deputy Ward Manager on 7 July 2002. Susan Owen was killed in a car crash soon after I began my blog. Her family Raised Money for the NHS in Susan’s memory. Susan had worked as an Angel at Ysbyty Gwynedd since before the Hergest was built and had witnessed a great deal of crime. Susan Owen was usually much nicer than some we know and love, but on one occasion after Alun Davies had demanded that I be arrested, Susan told the police, in my presence, that I had to pack my bags myself ‘because she accuses nurses of pinching her things’. I have never accused Angels of Pinching My Things, I’ve stated that Angels have been guilty of much else, but I have never accused any Angel of Pinching My Things. Probably because the Angels had far more Things than I did and much more expensive Things as well.

The Circulation List re my attempt to break down the door of the junior docs room signed by the Angel who believed that I accused Angels of Pinching My Things was  drawn up following consultation with Dr Chandron and Dr Chakrabaty, as well as on-call consultant Dr Chesterman. See previous posts for Chesterman, a Forensic Psychiatrist. Chesterman Assessed me in Caernarfon Police Station one night and declared me to Not Be Showing Any Signs Of Depression, although I have never ever met Dr Chesterman in my entire life. But he has met and Assessed me and I have the documentation to demonstrate it. See the source imageGypsy Chesterman has been at the centre of three high profile scandals and miscarriages of justice in various parts of the UK after he gave Expert Evidence, so he’s doing quite well. At one point Gypsy Chesterman held an honorary academic post in the School of Psychology at Bangor University. Gypsy Laurence Paul Chesterman qualified in 1979 at London University and at present is not registered with the GMC ‘for administrative reasons’.

Following the Consultation between Gypsy Chesterman, Chandon and Chakrabaty, it was documented that I was arrested and charged with criminal damage and threatening behaviour. I wasn’t. I was arrested and taken to the police station, where I remained for hours. The police didn’t charge me because the Hergest Unit could not show that I had damaged anything, including the door of the junior docs’ room. Neither had I threatened anyone, so I wasn’t charged with that either. Or if I was, the charges quietly went away as they so often did.

Never mind, there were lots of witnesses, it was recorded that it was all witnessed by HCA Yvonne Lloyd and that was countersigned by Cheryl H.A. Williams on 7 July 2002 and Susan J. Owen on the same date. This documentation was revisited by Anne Ward at a later date and amended as well, bumping up all the risk categories.

It was after this that Chesterman visited and Assessed me in Caernarfon Police Station using his Gypsy ways. The one person who did meet me in Caernarfon Police Station that night was a totally offensive social worker, Barbara Williams, who insulted me, yelled at me when a particularly unpleasant man under arrest began hurling obscene insults at me and I told him to shut up, and also ignored a prisoner who was seriously ill in the station but denied medical help. But then Barbara was ignoring much wrongdoing in my own case. Barbara told the police that I should not be given any medical care, the police refused to arrest me because I hadn’t committed any crimes, so I left the station late at night. I had been made homeless days previously when the Arfon CMHT told my landlady’s sisters that I was a Dangerous Nutter, so I spent a few nights at the Youth Hostel in Ogwen Valley before I found somewhere to live.

Other witnesses names who appear on documentation about me (and indeed other patients who were Hergest patients in Aug 2002), include Elwyn Jones, ‘Senior Nurse on call’ and B.J. Davies. PC Dewi Wyn Thomas is documented as arresting me. Hergest patients tended to like Dewi, we all knew that he was being ordered to arrest us for ridiculous reasons by Top Docs and Angels. On one occasion in Feb 2003 after I ‘disturbed a meeting held by Mrs M. Clarke’, Dewi arrested me, drove me off of Ysbyty Gwynedd premises, let me go on the road outside saying that he was ‘de-arresting me’, but told me not to return to the Hergest Unit because they’d just tell him to arrest me again. Dewi later completed a Masters degree and I bumped into him after I finished my PhD. I asked him if he realised that things were now even worse at the Hergest Unit and he physically scarpered.See the source image

I have found a document stating that on 25-26 Oct 2002, Dafydd rang the Hergest Unit, claiming that I’d rung him from the payphone in the Hergest Unit. Dafydd ‘was fearful for his safety’. The Hergest advised Dafydd to contact the police. It transpired that there was no evidence that I had rung Dafydd from the Hergest payphone, but Dafydd Had Spoken. It might explain the huge efforts that followed to have me charged with any crime possible. Dafydd gave his phone number to the Hergest staff to be passed onto Alun Davies. 01248 371398.Image result for open all hours images

My documentation contains written admissions of staff refusing to identify themselves to patients. On 27 Oct 2002, M Stanley – I think that is Ria (or Rea?) Stanley, the Nurse Manager of the Hergest Unit, documented that there was ‘very low’ staffing levels on Taliesin Ward and that M. Stanley had ‘resorted to desperate measures to secure more staff’. The efforts were unsuccessful, so ‘Steve Edwards will have to cover Taliesin Ward, so there is only emergency cover re the bleep holder’.

Taliesin was the Intensive Care (locked) ward and at the time there were constant complaints of staff aggression and assault – the same staff were named repeatedly – so staff then refused to identify themselves; there were serious mistakes re medication, the ward was dangerous and it was chaos. Keith Thomson and Patricia Gaskell stalled constantly and failed to investigate serious complaints. A number of people wrote to the Secretary of State for Wales,  to which Thomson’s response was that they were ‘attention seekers’.

I have found some particularly interesting documents re my arrest for threatening to kill Alun Davies. Previous posts explained that Alun Davies rang the police some eight or nine times when he was in a meeting with Sister Hutt’s officials – and I think Sister Hutt herself – complaining that I’d told his secretary, over the phone, that he was a fat idiot and demanded my arrest. The police told the Fat Idiot that it would be ridiculous to arrest me for such an offence, so the Fat Idiot then rang the police telling them that I’d threatened to kill him and he was terrified. I was locked in Taliesin at the time, still injured from the Angels not assaulting me, so the Fat Idiot was clearly in immediate danger. Do Nothing released me immediately that my bruises had faded and as I walked through the exit, Do Nothing smugly told me that the police would be arresting me imminently for threats to kill…

My files contain paperwork compiled at Sister Hutt Central on the fateful day, 31 Oct 2002! A 35 page fax was sent about me to Trish Gaskell from Sister Hutt Central, accompanied by a memo timed 2 pm telling Trish that the Fat Idiot would be available on his mobile until 5-45 pm, the number being 079000 51662.Image result for derry irvine images

Christmas Came for the Fat Idiot and Sister Hutt when on 24 Nov 2002, Mr Bridgy Celeb managed to kill Kostadin Yankov, an Oxford University student, after firing him from a medieval catapult. Kostadin sustained serious injuries, was flown to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol but died shortly after arrival. No wonder the charges of me Threatening To Kill didn’t disappear into thin air as everyone believed that they should have done…

The Home Secretary, 8 June 2001-15 Dec 2004:David Blunkett MP Where Next for Welfare.jpg

Mr Bridgy Celeb was interviewed on the TV news after the accident; a friend rang me and told me that I ought to ring him because surely he’ll be in a terrible state. I thought ‘You don’t know Mr Bridgy Celeb’. Anyway she carried on, ooh he’ll be upset, so against my better judgement I rang him. Mr Bridgy Celeb told me that the deceased was ‘a Bulgarian student who didn’t have one living relative in the UK’ and he really didn’t think that anyone would be too worried about that death.

My trial at Mold Crown Court arrived before that of Mr Bridgy Celeb’s at Bristol Crown Court for manslaughter, but the Threats To Kill charges were withdrawn on the first day of the trial and replaced with the lowest category of Public Order Offence. The bent Judge Huw Daniel, old friend of the Gang as was Huw’s dad Prof J.E. Daniel, roared and bellowed with fury when the prosecution told him that the Threats To Kill charges had been withdrawn. Sentencing was adjourned for Psychiatric Reports, which Daniel insisted had to be provided by the Hergest Unit, but the silly fuckers didn’t ever receive the instruction, so when I returned for sentencing Daniel roared and bellowed again but was told that this seemed to the fault of the Hergest Unit not mine, Daniel having threatened to jail me if I did not ‘co-operate with the Hergest Unit’.

So that blew up in the corrupt old bastard’s face. Did anyone actually imagine that Davies et al would be able to carry out the simplest task, even when ordered by Biggus Daniel?

Biggus Daniel sentenced me to the maximum that he could for the very minor offence, over 100 hours community service. He also issued a legally invalid restraining order against me, but no-one dared mention that in Court. Then Daniel told the journos lies about my Victims that the journos faithfully published in the local press. Mr Bridgy Celeb’s case came up at Bristol Crown Court shortly after on 7 May 2004. The Nice Lady Judge Justice Heather Hallett stopped the trial and ordered the jury to acquit, on the grounds that the accident could not have been foreseen. Heather didn’t mention that there had already been a series of accidents with the catapult, one person had broken an arm, another had broken her pelvis and Mr Bridgy Celeb was warned that he could kill someone. He did not long afterwards, but he had the good fortune to know someone who had been at the hands of the Gang for years, he had done deals with people to keep schtum about that back in the days when Zany Python Graham was still alive, then all through the St George’s years and beyond…

So Gypsy Bridgy Celeb was quite right back in Nov 2002, See the source image no-one gave a stuff about a dead Bulgarian student. David Blunkett MP Where Next for Welfare.jpgNot even Sister Hutt. But especially not Heather. See the source image

On 12 June 2003, there had been a change of shift re Lord Chancellor. Derry had clocked off and the next Lord Chancellor – Miranda’s old flatmate in their Wandsworth days – had taken over duties:

Heather: If you don’t mind me saying, now that Gypsy Bridgy Celeb is over 60, you’re the sort of Older Lady whom he might choose to have a fling with if you get my meaning Heather. Gypsy Bridgy Celeb used to boast to his mates that he ‘liked them a bit tarty’. Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpegHaving Shared A Lady With James Hewitt, I’m sure that Gypsy Bridgy Celeb would be delighted to discuss Uganda with a High Court Judge. Particularly one who stopped him from going to prison.

Heather is now Baroness Heather. Of course she is. Anyone remember this graduate of Bristol Medical School?See the source image

Heather Hallett is the daughter of Hugh Victor Dudley Hallett QPM (1919-1991), Assistant Chief Constable and Secretary General of the International Police Association. She was educated at Brockenhurst Grammar School, in the New Forest, and at St Hugh’s College, Oxford. The Baroness is a member of Inner Temple a la the Havers family, Ronald Armstrong-Jones and Mr Thrope. The Baroness is at present Vice-President of the Criminal Division of the Court of Appeal.

Huw Daniel, you have questions to answer you old fool, as does the MDU. Then there’s the other outstanding unresolved matters, including the illegal amending of the PNC immediately after the case re Threats To Kill collapsed to record a conviction for ‘violent disorder’ against my name and the forged certificate of indictment for ‘violent disorder’ found in the possession of Chester Crow Court, the failure of the North Wales Police’s Legal Dept (or indeed anyone else) to deal with this… The failure of every agency in possession of forged/inaccurate documentation re my Criminal Offences to amend the inaccuracies etc. Details are in previous posts.

I’ll wait to hear from Derry and Charlie Falconer then…

More names of witnesses:

19 Sept 2002: Sheena Knowles mentioned Bleep Holder Carol Jones, also a Peter Barry, in relation to my arson.

A Dr Inda chose to sit in a meeting re my arson and criminal damage although she knew that I worked as a teacher at her children’s school. Dr Inda raised concerns that she might meet me at a parents evening. My lawyer raised concerns re Dr Inda’s conflict of interest and breach of confidentiality. Concerns were ignored by the Trust. Virtually every member of staff in the Hergest Unit was invited to the meeting, it was an open invitation to all interested parties. Fearns personally rang the parents of two pupils – who were police officers – to Warn Them about me.

I also Threatened two junior docs, Dr Chandran and Dr Chakraborty (Nice Lady Doc).

A document was compiled on Aug 2002 stating that it was not in my best interests to be given access to my medical files.

9 Oct 2002: I was asking for explanations again; Caroline Frain was told by Sandra Phillips that ‘it will take a while to think up what we’re going to say to her’.

On 30 Sept 2002 Sandra Phillips faxed Gaskell 6 pages FAO ‘Claims Assistant – Legal Services, NW Wales NHS Trust’.

Alun Davies wrote to me on 10 Sept 2002 telling me that I had been granted access to my Denbigh notes (no, they’d withheld those detailing the Cunning Plan cooked up between Superintendent Roberts of Bangor Police Station, Dafydd and Neil Davies to wrongfully arrest and detain me). Once more Alun Davies refused to pursue the matter of Dafydd sexually harassing/exploiting patients, on the grounds that the alleged incidents happened many years ago and have been the subject of prolonged correspondence… Davies had ‘nothing further to say’ on the subject.

One of the assaultive HCAs Michelle Shaw worked for Central Nursing Agency, NW Wales NHS Trust. Shaw worked shifts in the Hergest and at Ysbyty Penrhos Stanley. Michelle Shaw and her partners in crime provided signed statements about their assault on me – I’d Attacked them – on 15 Jan 2003. The assault – or my Attack – occurred on 25 Oct 2002. Keith Thomson simply ignored repeated correspondence about the matter for weeks. Keith Thomson and his successor as CEO of the Trust, Martin Jones (previously the Trust’s Finance Director), were known to rely on agency nurses for the Hergest, who were told that if they ever raised concerns, they’d not be employed again. The agency staff were costing a fortune and there was widespread suspicion that Keith and Martin had a financial interest in the agency.

In Jan 2003, the Assistant Director of Nursing for the NW Wales NHS Trust was Mrs Eleri Hugheston-Roberts. Eleri now seems to work for Anglesey County Council. By Nov 2011, Eleri was the Acting Business Manager of the Gwynedd and Anglesey Local Safeguarding Children Board. Until May 2011, the Welsh Gov’t Minister for Health and Social Services was Edwina Hart; she was succeeded by Lesley Griffiths who Helps The Mums (see ‘History Repeats Itself, First As Tragedy, Second As Farce).

I’ve received info that Eleri bagged her job as the Acting Business Manager after a deal with Edwina, who had ensured that none of my increasingly serious complaints re the constant intimidation, wrongful arrests, unlawful refusal to treat me etc on the part of the NHS in north Wales were being acted upon, although Edwina pretended that they were. The Counsel General for Wales at the time was Carwyn Jones, who subsequently became FM. Yesterday the BBC announced to the world that Carwyn has just been appointed Prof of Law at Aberystwyth University. Carwyn stated that his appointment is a ‘great honour’. Carwyn Jones Alwyn Jones and so many of the local solicitors and barristers who colluded with the Gang or were key members of the Gang – including Sir William Mars-Jones and Lord Elwyn-Jones – were Aber grads. No hard feelings Carwyn, you have a wife and children and you don’t want them to die on any operating tables in the future or find that although the Ah Doctors are wonderful, there’s nothing that they can do a la Nerys. So I’m giving these absolute bastards a kicking, they’ve been after me for decades and all I did was complain about a lobotomist who ran a paedophile ring; I didn’t even complain about the worst aspects of Gwynne’s conduct, just the libel and forged documentation…

In May 2011, Edwina became the Welsh Gov’t Minister for Business, Enterprise, Technology and Science. In that role, Edwina entertained the citizens of Anglesey by providing a business support grant to a man on Anglesey in return for sexual favours from him. Did Ugandan discussions underpin Eleri Hugheston-Roberts’s appointment in any way? I think we should be told.

A Justin Hugheston-Roberts in a barrister of Gray’s Inn who works on the Midland Circuit from Chambers at 3 Temple Gardens.

Dr Varadarajan Srinivasan was a 2002 witness. There is a curious brief scribbled note (undated) among my documents with Dr Srinivasan’s name next to the initials GMC. I suspect that this is a reminder to Gaskell or someone to get on to the GMC to cover arses. Previous posts have discussed how many Docs working for the Trust (including Sadie) were working in roles or at a senior level when they did not fulfil the legal criteria re qualifications; the GMC knew about these cases and colluded. It was likely that Dr Srinivasan should not have been working in his job and that it was feared that I might have found out and be intending to raise the matter, so the GMC were alerted… There were also staff employed by the Trust with serious criminal convictions who had not been CRB checked, it was chaos.

Original nursing notes written on 25 Oct 2002 signed by Alison Parry were scribbled out and rewritten by an unidentified person. The rewrite mentioned Dr Srinivasan and also that I ‘was pounding a glass door with such effort that I [the unknown scribe] was afraid that it would collapse.’ On 15 Jan 2003 Dr Sirinivasan signed a statement maintaining that I had made no complaint of assault to him. No wonder the GMC were alerted…

On 14 Feb 2005, I came across a Top Doc with Traditional Rural Rosy Red Cheeks working in Ysbyty Gwynedd A&E under the name of Dafydd’s son Dr Dyfrig ap Dafydd. Applecheeks treated me – very unusually, at the time I was being met with aggression and threats of arrest when I went near the NHS, that’s why Applecheeks left an impression one me – and signed the records as Dyfrig ap Dafydd. The Doc who treated me and who was wearing Dyfrig’s ID badge was DEFINITELY NOT Dyfrig ap Dafydd! I have no idea who he was, a young Welshman with a north Wales accent, friendly and pleasant, but not Dyfrig. Applecheeks had rosy cheeks, blond hair and was quite tall and well-built. This is Dyfrig as featured on the CAIS website See the source image they were not the same Doc. I think that Applecheeks was much younger than Dyfrig as well. Dyfrig Morgan ap Dafydd is on the Medical Register as having a licence to practice and being on the GP register. Dyfrig works as a GP on Anglesey; he Qualified from Newcastle in 2002, on the manor of Gwynne’s mate Lord John Walton, where anything goes. I wonder if Dyfrig actually passed any exams?? Dyfrig’s wife Tracy, who also Qualified from Newcastle in 2002, is on the Medical Register and is a GP. There is another Dr ap Dafydd on the Medical Register, Derfel Morgan ap Dafydd, who qualified at the University of Wales in 2005 and is listed on the Medical Register as a Clinical Radiologist. One of Dafydd’s kids when he was about 10 had very blond hair. I wonder if Applecheeks is Derfel who was still a student when he was On Shift in YG in Feb 2005 who wanted to earn extra dosh so an arrangement was made with Keith Thomson?

Dr Derfel Morgan ap Dafydd stars on the website of the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, as their Consultant Radiologist and Training Programme Director:

Dr Derfel ap Dafydd is a Consultant Radiologist with a special interest in imaging of the Head & Neck and imaging of the urological system. Dr ap Dafydd obtained  his medical degree at Cardiff University in 2005. As an undergraduate he also obtained a 1st class degree in Medical Genetics. He completed his general physician’s training and MRCP at Bart’s and the Royal London. After concluding his radiology training at Imperial, he obtained further sub-specialty training in oncological imaging at the Royal Marsden. He was appointed as a consultant in 2016 and is now the imaging lead for the Head and Neck unit and Renal unit, and performs ultrasound guided biopsies of the neck and of soft tissue sarcomas. As Training Programme Director, he is the educational lead for the Royal Marsden Radiology Training Programme. He is the principle trial radiologist for the Head and Neck and the Renal research units. Particular areas of active research include intra-oral ultrasound guided Trans-oral Robotic Surgery, Ultrasound guided intra-tumoral injection of Immunotherapy and post radiotherapy MRI evaluation of the prostate and pelvic floor.

 

So Derfel specialises in Brains and Genitalia and has a big interest in computer software. If Derfel is anything to do with Dafydd, that’s quite worrying. Derfel has a heavy internet presence, he’s all over the web; Derfel undertakes much private work and advertises his presence at Chelsea and Kingston-upon-Thames.

Perhaps Dr Pauline Cutting who Led the YG A&E Dept with its crazy, violent, perjuring Angels (see eg. ‘Two Very Dangerous, Dishonest Nurses’) could enlighten us re Applecheeks. Particularly as Applecheeks’s notes about me on 14 May 2005 were written on Official NW Wales NHS Trust/Ysbyty Gwynedd Notepaper with Pauline Cutting’s name printed on it.

Pauline Cutting Qualified at Liverpool University in 1976. Like Dr Chris the Dick Doctor, Pauline has undertaken much charidee work in war-torn countries Abroad. Pauline was congratulated for this on TV by Jimmy Savile. When I met Pauline Cutting I asked her what Savile was like in real life; this was before he died and the Sort Of Truth began to emerge. Pauline told me that he is ‘a very, very odd man, but he is genuine about his charity work’.

There’s a lovely photo online of Pauline and Savile cuddling two Children From The War-Torn Middle East, but one has to pay to use it, so if I post it here it’ll just disappear. In true Gang-style, Pauline began her charidee work and received good media PR at times of crisis for the Gang: Dr. Pauline Cutting, OBE FRCS, … a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons since 1983, Pauline Cutting obtained widespread experience working in hospitals in Liverpool and London. In November 1985, she volunteered to work in a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon…’

So Pauline leapt into the role as Humanitarian Hero as the Gwynne War was underway, I’d begun communicating with the Welsh Office and the first explosion from Tony Francis followed by lies had recently occurred; Mary Wynch’s case had received national media coverage in the summer of 1985.

In April 1987, Pauline’s dad Alan Cutting starred on TV: Press interview with Alan Cutting, father of Pauline Cutting, British surgeon, who has returned to the UK following breaking of a siege by Lebanese Shi’ite Amal gunmen in the Bourj Al-Barajneh Palestinian refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon where she had been trapped for five months.

This interview came hot on the heels of this: Report on a meeting between UK Foreign Secretary, Geoffrey Howe, and Amine Gemayel, President of Lebanon, at the Dorchester Hotel, London. Press interview with Howe and Gemayel’s political advisor…

That’s the Geoffrey Howe, Welsh barrister who had concealed the criminality of the Gang for decades and was a close friend of Ronnie Waterhouse…

So Pauline was on a Party political mission as well as a generally political one. Peter Morrison was Deputy Chairman of the Tory Party, 10 September 1986-11 June 1987.See the source image

On 2 Jan 1988, Pauline’s book was released:

In Feb 1988, I was offered the job with Vincent Marks’s CRC team at Surrey University. Peter Morrison served as Energy Minister with responsibility for Oil, 11 June 1987-23 July 1990.

Pauline starred in the March 1992-March 1993 Granada TV series ‘Extraordinary People’ (see previous posts for details of the friendships between the Gang and big wigs of Granada, in particular Sidney Bernstein):

Series 1 Episode 2 “Return To The Camps” 17 March 1992 Pauline Cutting
Part one of surgeon Dr. Pauline Cutting’s visit to the Lebanon and the Gaza Strip’s Palestinian refugee camps.
Series 1 Episode 3 “Return To Gaza” 24 March 1992 Pauline Cutting
Part two of surgeon Dr. Pauline Cutting’s visit to Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.

Spring 1992: when I was stuck in the psych ward of Ysbyty Gwynedd for weeks making friends with other patients who had been grossly abused by the Humanitarian Hero’s colleagues, including the girl who had been passed around the junior gynaes for sex who arranged her two abortions that followed themselves and the young gay man whom Dafydd was trying to persuade to undergo gender realignment surgery. I had also become friends with F…

Pauline’s mate, UCNW marine geologist Anthony Stewart Gervaise Jones, an RAF Team Mountain Rescue Hero who was always ready with a bit of PR for Pauline et al in the A&E at Bangor, was the unlikely star of Aspel’s ‘This Is Your Life’ in Jan 1993; Tony Jones was filmed with Aspel at the very end of 1992. Tony Jones was an overtly racist South African who enjoyed referring to niggers in the presence of black students and was Bangor’s answer to Ollie Reed, getting drunk with The Lads and having his buttocks tattooed, wrestling naked in mud etc.

Jones was famously unable to cope with girls and women but I never knew whether that was just because he genuinely lived in a world in which the only women were tomboys/sporty or whether something more worrying was at work. Jones’s close relationships with young male students were the subject of gossip, although as Aspel explained ‘he’s like a father to them’. Not if Tony didn’t take a shine to the male students he wasn’t; Tony Jones was famed for his vindictive campaigns against certain students and I knew one student very well who was hounded out of hall (Jones was Senior Warden) for no good reason by Tony Jones. Then there was the time that Tony Jones, ‘for a laugh’, persuaded some of his bent copper friends to wrongfully arrest a student and keep him in the cells overnight before releasing him without charge.

I never knew whether Tony Jones was just odd or whether the more worrying allegations were true; he was undoubtedly friends with a Gang of sex offenders, but after I began my blog I was told that Tony Jones WAS sexually abusing boys… Tony Jones died shortly before I began this blog. Cancer, but Ah his old mates the Doctors – Pauline’s colleagues at Ysbyty Gwynedd – were wonderful…

Tony Jones did enjoy being photographed/starring in the media.

This episode of ‘Extraordinary People’ followed Pauline’s mini-series:

Series 2 Episode 2 “On A Knife Edge” 16 March 1993 Terence Lewis
Heart surgeon Terence Lewis of the Royal London Hospital’s work is followed, as well as the NHS in general.

So Pauline’s adventures were followed by the adventures of Brave Wendy’s colleagues! In the month that F and I were charged after Jackie Brandt told a pack of lies to the police… The Royal London Hospital was pretty much run by the Oil Industry…See the source image

Pauline I’m fairly sure knew Zany Graham Chapman as well, Chapman was mates with the A&E Docs in Bangor in particular. Pauline’s been the stalwart in A&E in Bangor for years now.

My post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’ discussed the ‘Taking Liberties’ programme screened by BBC Two on 5 March 1991,’Who Will Listen To Mary Wynch?’. The producer was Rhonda Evans and the series producer was Elizabeth Clough, who until recently was the partner of Jeremy Paxman.

So the media interest that followed Mary winning her case before the Master Of the Rolls in July 1985 was eclipsed by the Gang’s propaganda.

 

Dave Wood HCA, who was one of those who assaulted me on Taliesin, said in his statement that he’d worked at Hergest for 10 yrs. There were numerous complaints about Wood, in particular from female patients who found Wood in their rooms in the middle of the night. He had previously been obliged to leave a job with children/young people after he flushed one of the kids heads down the bog. For a laugh like. 

Dr Srinivasan qualified in 1996 from Bangalore. He is currently licenced to practice and is on the GP register. Perhaps the GMC could let me know why the Trust needed to have a word with them about Dr S in 2003…

Those who conspired with Keith Thomson not to investigate my complaint after I, once more, tried the Independent Review NHS complaints route, included Lay Reviewers and Lay Advisers, ‘selected from a list approved by the Welsh Govt’. The Independent Review Secretariat Officer was Mrs Margaret Roberts, PO Box 125 Mold. Margaret’s phone number was 0170 411514015; I wasn’t ever given Margaret’s number, but it was given to staff at the NW Wales Trust who were on excellent terms with Independent Margaret. When I first contacted Independent Margaret’s outfit, Lay Reviewer Mr T.N. Davies suggested that before I went down the Formal Route, Mediation (aka local resolution) should be tried. My solicitor and I agreed; previous posts have detailed how the first Mediation (on 7 May 2003) by a Professional Mediator (Steve Hindmarsh), arranged and funded by the Trust, collapsed because all staff refused to attend Mediation – on the advice of Gaskell – except for Do Nothing, who walked out of the Mediation after approx. 3 mins before contributing, refusing to return. The Mediator announced the situation unmediatable. After yet more abuse, aggression etc from the Trust, my lawyer was referred back to Independent Margaret for yet more negotiations. The Lay Reviewer once more suggested Mediation to my lawyer and I. We actually agreed (God we were mugs). Keith Thomson then told us that all staff had refused to co-operate with the Mediation. My lawyer’s jaw hit the floor at this point.

If only I had possession of these documents then, I could have told my lawyer that it was Avril Davies, a member of NW Wales NHS Trust staff, who TOLD THE LAY REVIEWER to advise us to go for mediation… Independent Margaret had ASKED THE TRUST what they wanted to do.

Avril Davies was an old lag, Avril had for decades worked as the Mental Health Act Senior Administrator for Hergest and she was in that role before Hergest was built. It was Avril who knew how flagrantly the Act was being flouted/misused, Avril who told the lies in the face of complaint etc. Re Dafydd’s fuming mentioned above about ‘the intrusion’ of F and I into his office; it starred Avril. F and I had received so much crap and were so fed up of the refusals to investigate Dafydd, that one day when he arrived we followed him into his office and Occupied The Office. Dafydd sat there buzzing his alarm shouting ‘Assistance Assistance, Security Security’ and we were reciting as many of his crimes as we could think of, following each one with ‘BASTARD’. ie. Mary Wynch – BASTARD. Mary Wynch’s Mother – BASTARD. Margaret Richards – BASTARD. We managed to list some six crimes and yelled BASTARD after each one before Avril burst into the Office, shouted at F and me ‘THAT IS ENOUGH, GET OUT NOW’, so we left the office but then began laughing because we wondered which crimes Avril Davies feared that we were going to end up mentioning in public before she shut us up. The police were called and Avril provided a wonderful statement describing how we were ‘towering over Dr Jones’ and he was ‘looking pale and terrified’. Avril also claimed that F had said to me ‘He’s nothing but an old shit’. No, F didn’t say that, it must have been Avril Projecting Her Own Feelings Onto Others (as F subsequently told her), Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpegwhat F did say to me was ‘Come on Sally, he’s an old man looking at his grave, let’s go’.

On 14 Feb 2003 ‘Reet’ aka Rita Thomas, the Trust’s Complaints Co-ordinator, Litigation, documented that Anne Louise Ferguson (lawyer) had advised that if a High Court injunction was ‘needed’ against me, documentary evidence would be required. Ferguson gave the successful example of another patient whom I knew years ago who had a really bad time at the hands of the Gang after daring to complain about Dafydd when he was banged up in Denbigh. This man was in Court as often as I was and there were constant attempts to imprison him. He opted for jury trial on one occasion when the Gang really went in for the kill and cried with joy when they returned a verdict of not guilty and shook hands with every juror. The Daily Post maxed out on the Nutter Who Got Away; well Daily Post, that man was under attack for YEARS from the Gang, they put him through hell. So you go and ask Anne Louise Ferguson  to fess up why they did what they did to him, because I’ve got documentary evidence here.

THEY FITTED HIM UP.

Anne (she’s actually Anne-Louise) can be found on the NHS Wales website:

After Gaskell left her role as NW NHS Trust solicitor, she was appointed to a senior position at the Welsh Risk Pool. The Chief Exec of the Welsh Risk Pool was Gren Kershaw, Gren Kershawformerly the CEO of the North East Wales NHS Trust. Gren arrived in north Wales in 1983, an NHS manager from Leeds, Savile Central.

Reet also consulted Morwen Edwards, ‘out of hours solicitor’ re me on 14 Feb 2003 See the source imageand Kate Elis-Williams was consulted too. Elis-Williams was a member of the NW Wales Trust Board. Elis-Williams ended up as the Finance Director of the Trust and when the NW Wales NHS Trust finally sank and was replaced by the Betsi Board, it was rumoured that the Board members were at each others throats and Elis-Williams knifed all of them. It was alleged that Elis-Williams ran off with what was left of the Trust’s funds. Then Elis-Williams’s son registered for the law degree at Bangor University.

Other witnesses to my Crimes at Ysbyty Gwynedd in Feb 2003 which culminated in PC Dewi Thomas arresting me but who have not previously been named on this blog included a Liz Madine and John Potts.

On 8 Sept 2003 an e mail conversation took place between Gaskell, ‘Trish’ and Reet: Trish e mailed Reet and said ‘I have prepared the letter and disclosures for Kevin to collect, subject to Cenwydd confirming that the letter is OK (will be tomorrow). Please amend if necessary and can you ring Kevin to come and collect the letter and copies – tell him to park properly this time!!!!!’

Reet replied to Trish: ‘I have left a message earlier re Case Ref as he is not available today- I’ll ring him tomorrow with this if that’s OK and yes I will remind him to park properly!! Cheers [At this time, there were constant problems with patients (including me) being subjected to heavy fines if their cars were even parked ay Ysbyty Gwynedd improperly even in a minor way. I found out that not only were Enemies Of The Gang being targeted, but the two parking attendants employed by the Trust were running a racket and pocketing the money, after striking a deal with the Gang to harass Enemies by fining them constantly.]

Trish to Reet ‘re Sally Baker, Police Request’ – Cheers, Jan is copying the documents and if you can print out the letter, I’ll sign it, pending Cenwydd’s approval’ [I don’t know who Cenwydd is, perhaps they could  drop me a line and introduce themselves, having rifled through my undies.] Reet replied with ‘No probs, will do.’

Other names on the documents dated in 2003 include Reet’s colleague Janice Lee-Williams, Claims Legal Assistant, Legal Services.

Hillary Challen, Mental Health Occ Therapist, is named as is Hillary’s colleague June Edwards.

A Dr Oberholzer was consulted about me without my knowledge on 23 Oct 2003. Oberholzer has been the subject of a number of serious complaints and at one point was suspended by the GMC. He returned to work, only to play a central role in the death of an in-patient at the Hergest Unit. The negligence was dreadful, the patient was a popular local man and his parents were interviewed in the media re the possibility of legal action against the NW Wales NHS Trust. It didn’t go anywhere and Wayne Morris was just another Schizophrenic who died in the care of the Hergest Unit. At one point Wayne lived opposite F; it was after they had been neighbours that Wayne’s dead body was found on the railway tracks after he had left Hergest ‘to go for a walk’. Wayne grew up in Birmingham and insisted that he was a witness to a big paedophile ring targeting teenage boys in Birmingham; it was those Delusions that caused Wayne to be diagnosed with Schizophrenia. Wayne was loaded up with anti-psychotics but the Delusions didn’t go away, much to the chagrin of the Hergest staff.

Dawid Johannes Oberholzer Qualified at the University of Pretoria in 1971, although he didn’t obtain his full registration until 1980. Oberholzer is currently in possession of a licence to practice. The three other Oberholzers on the Medical Register all for various reasons to do have licences to practice.

On 23 Sept 2003 Gaskell wrote to Paramjit Thamu at the MHAC and told her that my complaint was being handled under the New Welsh NHS Complaints Procedure!

On 15 Dec 2003, T.N. Davies wrote to my lawyer apologising for the delay but explaining that ‘the Secretariat was endeavouring to engage an independent psychologist to undertake mediation re my complaints… a significant number are of a non-clinical nature. I therefore propose to engage an Independent Senior NHS Trust Administrator to mediate on the particular complaints in order to progress the matter in some way. Mrs Gaskell has agreed to this proposal. The appointed person will meet separately with your client and Trust staff.’

A fax was sent to Gaskell from Margaret but there is no copy of the fax in my files.

Alun Davies wrote Gaskell a letter dated 19 Jan 2004, thanking her for sending him copies of letters from me of 12 and 13 Jan 2004. Davies wrote ‘I am as I am sure you are, rather concerned at the terms of the restraining order imposed by the Court on 5 Jan. [Davies is referring to the legally invalid order issued by Huw Daniel, after the Threats To Kill charge was withdrawn. Daniel issued an order stating that I should be arrested if I entered NHS premises. It was invalid, the whole Court knew this, but I had no legal aid, couldn’t afford a lawyer to fight the nonsense and was by that time fed up with Judges breaking the law in open Court, the Gang being caught perjuring themselves and assaulting me with impunity, so I just thought sod this, one day I’ll publish the lot.] Because of the terms she now obviously feels able to resume her campaign… ‘

I was being harassed, threatened, followed around Bangor, Caernarfon, Llanberis and catcalled by Davies’s sodding henchmen/women, and my medical records were being sent to third parties while colleagues of mine at Bangor University were receiving phone calls from NHS staff telling them that They Knew All About Me And I Was Dangerous, that’s why  my ‘campaign’ continued.

On 5 Feb 2004, Alun Davies wrote to Gaskell demanding that the Top Doc at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd (in the neighbouring NHS Trust, managed by Gren KershawGren Kershaw) should ‘promptly’ return my medical records to the NW Wales NHS Trust for ‘filing’. The NW Wales NHS Trust had refused to treat me, declared me Vexatious yet they demanded the right to keep my files, because in Davies’s opinion ‘in view of the outstanding complaint and outstanding issues as the notes are obviously an important reference point’. Yes and they can pop in and out and remove documents or rewrite them or add a few more forged ones…

Sadly the Top Doc at YGC, Neil Davies, agreed to Alun Davies’s law-breaking and conspiracy but then Neil Davies was fully on board  with Dafydd and had been back in Dec 1986 when I was unlawfully imprisoned in the Bryn Golau Peep Show. When Denbigh closed, Neil Davies relocated to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. I didn’t know that Neil Davies was Dafydd’s paid-up accomplice because the documents written by Neil Davies clearly demonstrating this were unlawfully withheld from me…Gren Kershaw

For much of the time, Alun Davies kept my medical records at home with him; Davies documented this. Just unbelievable.

On 11 Feb 2004, Gaskell wrote to Alun Davies, CC’ing her letter to Tony Jones, Exec Nursing Director and Bethan Nickson, District General Manager. Tony Jones’s PA was Roz Pegler, yet another witness to so much crime. Gaskell thanked Davies for his letter of 6 Feb 2004 and confirmed that she’d written to Anne Louise Ferguson seeking her advice after I had turned down the ‘offer’ of mediation – although Gaskell admits that Sadie and Do Nothing had both refused to attend mediation, so it was fairly obvious why I’d refused to waste my time with it once more – and told Gaskell that I was taking a complaint to the GMC…

On 25 Feb 2004, Keith Thomson declared me to be a Vexatious Complainant and as such would not respond, beyond a simple acknowledgement, to any more complaints from me. Nothing at all had been properly investigated, let alone resolved. The Official Vexatious Complainant’s documentation was completed and signed by Gaskell and Bethan Nickson, District General Manager (Quality and Clinical Assurance) on 24 Feb 2004 and countersigned by Thomson and R.A. Jones, Nursing Director on 25 Feb 2004.

I don’t know Bethan Nickson, but it’s almost certain that she was something to do with Dr Paul Nickson. Nickson’s wife when I knew Nickson in Bethesda in the 1990s was Jenny, but she might have had a different ‘official’ name. I heard years later that Jenny left Paul Nickson and he married again, so Bethan might have been his new partner. I think Nickson’s children were too young to have joined the Gang in a senior capacity by 2004 and I only remember him having a son, Harry.

Gaskell had kickstarted the Vexatious Complainants Procedure on 18 Feb 2004 by sending a request to Invoke The Procedure to Thomson, R.A. Jones and Bethan Nickson. All of whom had very good reasons not to want any complaint of mine investigated. Gren KershawAlthough Gaskell had already on 11 Feb 2004 written to Alun Davies and Sandra Phillips attaching a draft copy of a letter to me classifying me as a Vexatious Complainant.

Sadie Francis was on board as well. She sent an internal memo to David Prichard, Executive Director of the NW Wales NHS Trust on 13 Feb 2004, thanking Prichard for sending her a copy of correspondence addressed to Gaskell re my phone calls and letters from me. ‘I write to inform you that on 9 Feb 2004 I was contacted by the police…I have had no further communication from her [me] since the e mail of 29 Jan 2004 and a telephone call on 2 Feb 2004 which was possibly from her. Thank you to everybody for help in this matter’. The letter was stamped as received by the Trust on 19 Feb 2004 and CCd to Thomson, Gaskell, Alun Davies, Do Nothing.

David Prichard was for years the Clinical Director of Ysbyty Gwynedd/the NW Wales NHS Trust. When I finally obtained my medical records in 2005, there was a note stuck to the top of them signed by Prichard simply saying ‘This patient must be stopped’. Image result for the godfather images

Prichard retired suddenly as I finished my PhD. He left north Wales and no-one knew where he went, which surprised everyone because Prichard had been such a central figure in the North Wales NHS. David Robert Prichard has voluntarily relinquished his registration with the GMC. What a Great Loss to Medicine! Prichard Qualified at Edinburgh University in 1973.See the source imageSee the source image

Why did I e mail and phone Sadie in the midst of the saga? Because she had bumped into me in public, was as friendly as could be, told me that she had heard that I was well on the way with my PhD, asked if I had got back together with Brown or were we just good friends, told me that she had retired and said that she was glad that everything had worked out so well and she was very sorry that it had ended badly with Hergest. THEN Sadie said that she had heard that Brown and I were planning a book on the mental health system and she guessed that ‘we will be in it’. So I wrote her a friendly e mail (dated 30 Jan 2004) when I got home, apologising for ever having thought badly of her and Tony. I then did try to ring them – THEY had given me their home number – and I was only saved from the Trap because when Sadie answered the phone, the recording device that they had wired up was malfunctioning and I heard whirring and whistling and Tony saying in the background ‘Is it her? Is it her? Make sure that thing’s working’. So I hung up…

The copy of the e mail that is in my files and was given to the police is so friendly and chatty AND includes references to Sadie extending the hand of friendship to me, that for the police to be Warning People about me because of that e mail should probably have been a cause for an investigation into conspiracy by itself. My e mail also mentions the terrible problems that F was encountering, although I failed to mention that he had been ABANDONED BY THE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES COMPLETELY AND WASN’T COPING. I sent my e mail to Sadie’s NHS e mail address – she was still doing some locum work – and Sharon, a secretary, forwarded it to Sadie’s own e mail address. So Sharon read the Terrifying E Mail as well…

A Rob Lewis was sent a copy of my e mail to Sadie.

The last contact that I had with Sadie before I bumped into her and then sent her the Terrifying E Mail, was a letter that she had sent me via my lawyer on 2 April 2003 after I notified Keith Thomson that his ‘service’ was too dishonest and dangerous to use and I wanted a referral to another Trust. Sadie wrote to my solicitor saying ‘I should be grateful if you could give Sally my sincere best wishes for her in the future’.

Another witness to the Brewing Of The Plot in Jan 2003 was a Nikki Frandinand (or a similar surname); Nikki sent a fax to my lawyer on behalf of Keith Thomson.

A document simply dated Jan 2004 written by Caroline Frain notes that Gaskell ‘spoke with Alun Davies yesterday regarding SB’s recent letter about there being an orchestrated campaign to try to get her put in prison. Alun denied that there was any orchestrated campaign or that there was the feeding of any info into any channels. He stated that there was no evidence of this. Although he pointed out that there was evidence that staff generally were scared of SB and when they saw her they would complete several incident forms if she approached them or harassed them in any way’.

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

On 1 March 2004, my solicitor received a letter from Lay Reviewer pp T.N. Davies, stating that unless the Independent Review Secretariat hears directly from me, no further action will be taken. CC’d to Lay Advisor and to CEO NW Wales NHS Trust.

On 24 March 2004 Tony Jones (R.A. Jones, Nursing Director) wrote a note to Gaskell on the matter of Independent Margaret and told Gaskell ‘I have just made one or two minor amendments’.

On 24 March 2004, Independent Margaret wrote to me about my request for an Independent Review re the North East Wales NHS Trust (my request related to the North West Wales NHS Trust, but there are errors everywhere in my files). Independent Margaret thanked me for my letter of 13 March 2004 re my request for an Independent Review with regard to my complaint against the North West Wales NHS Trust and told me that ‘Mr T.N. Davies was the Lay Reviewer considering your original request for an Independent Review and he referred the matter back to the Trust for further local resolution which unfortunately did not prove successful.’ Indeed not, due to 100% non-cooperation from the NW Wales NHS Trust. ‘I have therefore appointed another Lay Reviewer Mr K. Naughton and Mr B. Jones as Lay Adviser to consider your complaint… I enclose a leaflet on how a complaint may be referred to the Ombudsman… I am now seeking your permission that all relevant documentation can be disclosed to the new Lay Reviewer and Lay Adviser. If your complaint contains clinical issues, copies of the same documentation will need to be sent to an Independent Clinical Adviser who will be selected and appointed from the Welsh Assembly Gov’ts approved list…’

I might as well have told Independent Margaret to ask the Windbags, George Carman, Rupert Murdoch or indeed any one of the hundreds of people with whom my medical records, including the lies and the forged bits, had been shared. Independent Margaret gained permission from me to send the records to even more Gossips of the Parish.

An O. Brookes was witness to the lunacy from Independent Margaret et al; on 22 Jan 2004, O. Brookes wrote to my lawyer on behalf of Lay Reviewer T.N. Davies, thanking her for her letter of 20 Jan 2004… My lawyer had written to T. Neil Davies thanking him for his letter of 16 Jan 2004 advising that mediation could now be arranged through Gaskell and asks if T.N. Davies if he could treat this as a matter of urgency. On 16 Jan 2004 T.N. Davies wrote to Gaskell recommending Independent Mediation. Davies CC’d his letter to Richard Jones, Lay Adviser; Thomson and Paramjit Thamu, Admin, Complaints and Deaths Unit, MHAC.

Independent Margaret’s letter continued ‘Please note… free independent support at this next stage of the NHS complaints procedure from your local CHC… the Chief Officer’s name is Mr D.G. Owen and he can be contacted on 01286 674961.’

Previous posts discussed Mr D.G. Owen and his Independent Support. I discovered Glanville Owen sitting in his office in Pepper Row, Caernarfon. He told me that Gwynedd CHC was not responsible for complaints about hospitals. I then found out that it was, so I returned to Glanville and he denied ever having told me that the CHC was not responsible for complaints about hospitals. Glanville was subsequently as obstructive as possible while handling my complaint and after more than a year of utter fuckwittery of Independent Support involving Glanville and his minions, Glanville stated that there was nothing further that he could do to investigate my complaint.

Years later I discovered that Glanville’s previous job had been Deputy Director of Gwynedd Social Services from the mid-1980s onward, with direct responsibility for managing children’s homes. (See eg. ‘I Know Nuzzing…’) Glanville was Lucille’s right hand man. At the Waterhouse Inquiry, Glanville told Ronnie that it was everybody else’s fault, he might have been the Senior Manager responsible for children’s homes but that didn’t mean that he was to blame and anyway he was leaving his job and he wasn’t ever going to work again. Glanville was recycled as Chief Officer for Gwynedd CHC soon after he Gave Evidence to Ronnie. When Gwynedd CHC metamorphosed into the Brand New Betsi Cadwaladr/North Wales CHC, imagine my surprise to find out that one of the members of the New CHC was er Glanville. Glanville was still up and running when Dr Chris the Dick Doctor became Chair of the CHC years after the Waterhouse Inquiry, although Glanville was by then an elderly man equipped with two hearing aids.

Glanville was one of the Ancients from Pwllheli and a graduate of Liverpool University, before completing postgrad work at Nottingham University and then a late career Management Course at Birmingham University, to enable him to be parachuted in as Lucille’s henchman in the mid-1980s when Alison Taylor was blowing the whistle.

Independent Margaret told me in her letter that ‘The Lay Reviewers’ response at this stage is to decide whether an Independent Review Panel should be convened. This is done in consultation with the Lay Adviser and after seeking appropriate clinical advice’.

Independent Margaret’s letter was CC’d to Chief Exec, NW Wales NHS Trust; K. Naughton, Lay Reviewer; B. Jones, Lay Adviser.

See the source image

One of my documents dated 1 March 2004 notes a telephone call from Independent Margaret’s senior colleague Eileen Habbijam re me in which Eileen told an unknown person that ‘neither the Secretariat or the Lay Reviewer should take any further action unless we hear direct from the complainant’. There was also a handwritten unsigned note supplying the names of Independent People, including Abigail Charles, Health Services Ombudsman; Abigail’s phone number is supplied, 029 20 394621.

On 24 March 2004, Independent Margaret also wrote to Keith Thomson telling him of my request for an Independent Review of my complaint. My letter to Independent Margaret’s Independent Secretariat asking for an Independent Review was dated 13 March 2004; it was stamped by the Independent Secretariat on 16 March 2004. The complaints process saga had begun in Oct 2002…

On 13 March 2004 I sent Thomson copies of the letters that I’d sent to the GMC. That was how the GMC found themselves in possession of a forgery purporting to be my letter of complaint about Do Nothing dated 17 July 2003. I must congratulate the GMC, it was a very high quality forgery, but certain clangers gave the game away (see ‘The General Medical Council – And Yet Another Forged Document’). Furthermore the copy of the forged letter held by the GMC was not signed by me or anyone else.

The forged letter from me was compiled months after the Reforming President of the GMC Sir Donald Irvine (who Trained at Durham/Newcastle) stood down, Sir Donald who had given the GMC a damn good shake-up after a series of scandals, the biggest and best being Harold Shipman. After Sir Donald, Standards Had Been Raised and It Could Never Happen Again! The apology to the victims of Harold Shipman was still on the GMC’s website when the GMC refused to investigate my complaints and one of their minions told me on the phone that they were far too busy to waste time with the likes of me.Image result for General Medical Council Logo

I wrote a further letter to the GMC on 6 March 2004. Of course nothing at all was done at any time, although when cars were trying to run me off the road and a gun was waved at me a few years later I e mailed the dear old GMC repeatedly.Image result for General Medical Council Logo

On 31 March 2004 Kenneth Naughton, Lay Reviewer, wrote to me to introduce himself and tell me that he had received my case papers on 25 March 2004 and that ‘I have been selected from a list of independent lay people held by the Welsh Assembly Gov’t and have no connection with any of the parties referred to in the complaint. I will be consulting with another independent person called a Lay Adviser from the same list. I will contact you again once I have had an opportunity to consider the papers and discuss them with the Lay Adviser’. CC’d to Chief Executive NW Wales NHS Trust; Lay Adviser.

On 2 April 2004, Independent Margaret wrote to Keith Thomson, acknowledging his letter of 29 March 2004 and telling Keith ‘I have forwarded a copy to Mrs Eileen Habbijam, Manager of the Independent Review Secretariat in Wales for her attention. I have also copied your letter to Mr K. Naughton, Lay Reviewer and Mr B. Jones, Lay Adviser, for their information’. CC E. Habbijam, K. Naughton, B. Jones.

On 29 Nov 2004, I wrote to Abigail Charles, of the Heath Service Ombudsman’s Office, not knowing that Abigail was on excellent terms with Independent Margaret and the NW Wales NHS Trust.

Another witness’s name is that of Mrs Rhonwen Lloyd Lewis, who’s name appears on a document dated 3 Nov 2004. I have no idea who she is.

Manon Gwilym, Investigating Officer for Litigation and Complaints knows all about the wrongdoing, Keith Thomson wrote to Manon re my ‘lengthy correspondence’ in Oct and Nov 2004.

I was not the only person to notice unsuitable staff employed at the Hergest Unit. Not only was I insulted in Safeways café by Michelle Shaw and her mate Gwen Bethan Roberts AFTER they dumped a whole tray of used crockery on my table and sat next to me, following them entertaining themselves by telling the girl on the till that I was a Nutter (I hadn’t even made a complaint about them, I was having lunch), but on 6 Aug 2004, I saw Hergest HCA Neville screaming and hurling abuse at a customer in Safeways car park because the customer had parked in a disabled space. Neville didn’t need the space himself, he didn’t have domain over the car park, he just yelled abuse at another customer. A group of chavs gathered round and began taking the piss calling their mates over to come and watch this bloke going mad in the car park. Neville was the member of Thomson’s staff who at one point supplied a statement to the police about me, after grabbing hold of my coat and trying to drag me along when he saw me in Tesco…

The conduct of Hergest staff was a matter of wonder openly discussed in the Bangor area. They were unhinged thugs who harassed people in the community when they were off duty.Image result for General Medical Council Logo

On 20 April 2004 Keith Thomson wrote to me telling me that he had disclosed all case notes to me, there were no more. Keith was concealing about 15 box files of my notes, he was forced to hand them over in 2005 or face being imprisoned for contempt by the High Court in Cardiff.

On 20 April 2004, Pat Capper sent a message to Sheila Owen CC’d to Sandra Phillips confirming that ‘all correct, is there anything you want me to do now?’, in response to a communication from Sheila on 20 April 2004 asking Pat to write to me telling me that all case notes had been disclosed to me, there were no more. Someone had even helpfully drafted the reply for Pat.

On 21 April 2004, ‘Sheila’ (perhaps Sheila V. Owen??) sent a 4 page fax to Independent Margaret, with a covering note describing it as an ‘unsigned letter from SB (me) from 2/11/02’. I have no idea what this document was or if it was from me, because there’s no copy provided in my file.

On 21 April 2004 Kenneth Naughton, Lay Reviewer, wrote to me refusing to convene an Independent Professional Review, suggesting that I write to the Health Service Ombudsman for Wales. I did and it was spectacularly unfruitful. The Health Service Ombudsman at the time was Adam Peat, but Adam’s side-kick whom I dealt with, Geraint Jones, was as good as the rude offensive staff of the General Nursing Council who snapped at me down the phone that When Sian Ruth Lloyd’s name had been cleared,See the source image the documentary evidence that I had provided ‘in support of my complaint’ ‘would be destroyed’. See previous posts for details of Rashida Conroy and her team at the General Nursing Council… Geraint Jones the Investigator and Adam Peat’s Office conducted business in a similar manner. Correspondence was ignored for weeks on end, if I phoned Geraint just stalled and when I finally confronted Geraint re the very serious nature of the wrongdoing at the North West Wales NHS Trust, Geraint was so unpleasant and threatening that I only wished that I had recorded the call. Not that it would have mattered, MI5 were bugging my phone, they heard Geraint in action, as well as Rashida and her colleagues. After many, many months I received a letter from Biggus Peat telling me that an investigation into my complaint ‘would not be in the public interest’. Biggus didn’t deny the scale of criminality that had been demonstrated, Gren Kershawhe merely decided that it wasn’t in the public interest to investigate the activities of a scandal ridden Trust with sky-high mortality rates on the part of patients, one of the highest staff sickness rates of any NHS Trust in the UK, huge bills for locum and agency staff and staff regularly topping themselves. It was well into 2005 by the time that the Ombudsman’s Office and I had finished with each other.

Before his appointment as Ombudsman, Adam Peat had previously served as a Welsh Office civil servant. See the source imageAfter his stint as Ombudsman – it was revealed that Adam was only investigating a small proportion of complaints, although one could only approach the Ombudsman if one’s complaint had been deemed serious enough for Keith Thomson et al to have pushed out all boats to blow it out of the water – Adam became the Big Boss of Magna Housing, a huge Housing Association covering much of the West Country. Image result for heather hallett imagesMost online references to Adam disappeared after he starred on this blog.

Geraint outlived Adam in terms of Ombudsmen, Geraint was still in the New Style Ombudsman’s Office recently. The New Style Public Service Ombudsman for Wales, Nick Bennett, is the son-in-law of a Gang member from Anglesey who has been giving loyal service for decades now. There is much dissatisfaction with Nick Bennett as Ombudsman and it has been noted that Nick receives more complaints about the NHS in north Wales than any other matter. See previous posts for details of Adam, Geraint, Nick and Nick’s in-laws.See the source image

On 24 Sept 2015, Geraint, as an Officer of the Ombudsman’s Office, produced a Factsheet for the General Public re Health Inspectorate Wales (HIW). HIW was created in the early years of the millennium and the first CEO was Dr Peter Higson. Higson readers may remember was a psychologist who Trained at UCNW, then spent years as a Research Psychologist at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, before becoming General Manager. Peter then became General Manager of the whole of the metal health services in North Wales before becoming CEO of HIW. Peter Higson failed to investigate my complaints (as well as those of many other people) as General Manager of Denbigh, as Regional Manager of the psychiatric services and as CEO of HIW.

In 2013, Peter was called upon by the Welsh Gov’t to Investigate the Deficits of Merfyn Jones in his capacity as Chairman of the Betsi. Peter wrote a damning Report and Merfyn resigned. Peter Higson was then announced as the new Chairman of the Betsi. Immediately after the announcement, HIW was, it was admitted by the Welsh Gov’t, not fit for purpose. Peter was the only CEO that HIW had ever experienced. Previous posts (and frequent news items) chartered the way in which the Betsi fell over the edge of a cliff in Peter’s safe hands. Not that Peter was ever worried, he was appointed as a governor of Bangor University, continued with his work as Director of Cartrefi Cymru (a housing and support charidee for the learning disabled), continued running his Psychology Consultancy and continued working as an Expert Opinion. For years Peter was a member of the North Wales Health Authority. Peter stood down as Chair of the Betsi not that long ago. Last year Peter was appointed as a member of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority.

Can anyone let me know if Peter Higson is on the GMC yet? Surely such an appointment is only a matter of time See the source imageif it hasn’t happened already. Peter’s sister Dr Ruth Hussey Trained as a Top Doc at Liverpool, Qualifying in 1979, worked as a GP, then specialised in Public Health rising to the Very Top re Public Health in the North West of England. Ruth subsequently spent time as a Gov’t Top Doc in Whitehall at the Dept of Health, only to return to Wales as the Welsh Gov’ts Chief Medical Officer in 2013. Gren KershawRuth was Honoured by Bangor University while her brother sat on the governing body of that institution. Ruth has been held up as a Role Model For Wimmin in Wales. See previous posts eg. ‘Topsy and Tim’ and ‘A Celebration Of Dafydd’s Medical Training’ for further details of Peter and Ruth.

There will surely be fuck-me shoes sported, but I can’t find any full length pics of Ruth. Here’s a pic of Ruth Being Honoured by Swansea University: Image result for dr ruth hussey images

On 28 Sept 2004, Alun Davies wrote In Confidence to Mr S. Atkinson, Child Protection, Dept Education and Science, Mowden Hall, Staindrop Road, Darlington DL3 9BG. Davies thanked Atkinson for his letter of 26 Aug 2004 who had asked Davies for information about my work, having been told by an Unidentified Gossip that I was a Dangerous Mentally Ill Teacher. Davies told Atkinson that his info about me was ‘very limited’ and ‘hearsay’ – that’ll be why Davies and his mates personally rang parents of my pupils, rang my PhD supervisor and sent my medical records to Merfyn the VC, because they just knew so little about me and it was all hearsay – and that ‘Our understanding is that she worked as a teacher in Hillgrove School around 2001 and as a Lecturer at Coleg Menai more recently. She may also between times have worked at a secondary school in the Rhyl area’.

Where was I when Davies sent this info to S. Atkinson? I was doing my PhD in Bangor University, sharing an open plan office with Dee Jones aka Gray, Dee’s two colleagues Esther and Christos (as well as with other people), who were undertaking a Risk Management project in collaboration with NHS Wales. Dee’s partner leading the NHS side of the project was one Patricia Gaskell and Biggus Dickus of the project was Gren Kershaw. Gren KershawTheir Project Meetings were held in our office and the drinks and nibbles would be laid out on the table immediately next to my desk. Trish’s colleague John Bowles, the Risk Manager for Ysbyty Gwynedd, used to leaf through documents on my desk, read the contents on my computer screen etc in order to try to intimidate me. Trish radiated iciness as she walked past me, refusing to even say hello…

One of the secretaries in the Dept in which I did my PhD was Lena Henry’s sister. One of the Profs in the Dept was married to someone who worked at Ysbyty Gwynedd. The Dept also ran an MSc that was popular with er employees of the NW Wales NHS Trust. One morning I arrived for work to find an Angel who had years ago insulted and threatened me having a cup of coffee with my PhD supervisor after dropping in to ask him for advice re the bullying that she had received from her NHS colleagues. Indeed she had, they gave her a terrible time but a gang of sex offenders aren’t very nice really and she’d worked with them since the late 1980s. Gren KershawShe subsequently married Kenny Midence and continued to work for the NHS in Gwynedd. Some of my PhD sessions re IT, stats etc were group sessions with Angels doing degrees at Bangor. Jackie Ehlen was one of them.

I was surrounded by NHS staff from the day that I began my PhD, they suddenly all decided that they wanted advice from my PhD supervisor or to do a postgrad course with him/his colleagues and no, it wasn’t ever me that was rude to them. Their rictus grins were plastered onto their faces as they greeted me. ‘Hello!! I hear that you’re doing a PhD now! Gosh, you have done well!’ Then they’d trot off and tell a few more people that They Know All About Me. The rudest I ever became was after too many comments of ‘Gosh fancy you DOING A PhD!!’ was to simply remind them that once I had walked away and escaped from their fucking criminal, crazy colleagues, I had simply returned to what I had been doing – a PhD – in 1990, before their mates had ruined my life… It was no great mystery.

That’s how little Alun Davies knew about me!

When Steve of the DES wrote to Alun Davies, the Secretary of State for the DES was dear old Charles Clarke. CharlesClarke2014.jpgSee previous posts for info re the Pig Clarke; his dad was a Civil Service Mandarin in the Days Of Gwynne and Charles was Chief of Staff of the Windbag’s Office, Feb 1981-92, when Tony Francis was sending the Windbag’s Office confidential documentation – fact/fiction/fantasy/forged – about me.Image result for general medical council logo images Come on Clarke, fess up, all absolutely unacceptable and furthermore the Windbag never even became PM, because Tony Francis was doing deals with Thatch’s pals in Somerset at the same time. Gren KershawIn Dec 2004, Clarke became Home Secretary and what a mess there was. Clarke was a Hackney Councillor, on the turf of the London Hospital, with Brave Wendy and Gwynne and Dafydd’s other partners in crime facilitating the trafficking ring there.

The letter that Davies received from Steve Atkinson was addressed to the NW Wales NHS Trust, Hafod Las, Llangefni, which was the Anglesey Team’s HQ, an odd address to use. It was the office of Ella Fisk, with whom I was still on good terms.

Steve’s e mail was provided: Stephen.Atkinson@dfes.gsi.gov.uk and his phone number: 0870 0012345  Steve told Davies that the Sec of State CharlesClarke2014.jpghad received a report from the North Wales Police about me following a conviction for pursuing a course of conduct which amounted to harassment [my conviction was for a lesser charge, a Gossip had got it wrong] Image result for general medical council logo imagesand that I had received psychiatric care for approximately 18 years. The DES had to consider action under Sec 142 of the Education Act 2002…

A handwritten addition on Steve’s letter reads ‘open to Kenny Midence, psychology, 2002’. I knew much about Midence but he was never involved with all that Care that I received.

I was touched to note that the DES Logo was ‘Creating Opportunity, Realising Potential, Achieving Excellence.’CharlesClarke2014.jpg

Charles Clarke et al wanted to strike me off the teaching register, me being Dangerous and Mentally Ill, although I demonstrated clearly that porkies had been told about me by er criminals. It was Merfyn’s friend the Philanderer, then a junior Education Minister, who cleared my name. I only worked out that the Philanderer had been the Name In The Frame when he was denounced on BBC News as having let a paedophile remain on the teaching register. I had no idea that the Philanderer was a mate of Merfyn’s, but when I worked out that he was the man who had cleared my name, I wrote to say thank you to him and told him that if the Final Decision had been left to Social Services and Top Docs, I would never have been cleared. I told the Philanderer that I did appreciate my name being cleared, although I was now doing a PhD and looking to an academic career. The Philanderer wrote me a nice letter back, saying that he was glad that things were going better for me, but he didn’t mention that he knew Merfyn.

Shortly after the Philanderer cleared my name, Miranda’s Gov’t announced that Ministers would no longer have any responsibility in assessing the suitability of those with Mental Illnesses re working with Vulnerable People in eg. teaching. The responsibility now lies entirely with a panel of Social Workers, who may take advice from Top Docs. When I heard that I realised that I had experienced a very lucky escape but felt for anyone else in teaching whom the Gang went after. Within a few years, the New Labour Gov’t announced that ALL jobs involving Contact With Vulnerable People – Including Adults – will be subject to the guidance re school teachers. Then it was announced that ALL university lecturing jobs would fall into this category because by definition, ALL university students were now classed as Vulnerable People.

Anyone out there who has ever blown the whistle on organised abuse facilitated by Top Docs and Social Workers? Miranda and Gordon have ensured that you will never work in a professional job again. Take a look at job adverts these days for professional positions; virtually all of them have refence to Vulnerable People, even the most unlikeliest ones. Neither will you be able to work in a low paid job as a care assistant, support worker etc. You’ll be able to get a job as a cleaner, on the tills, in a burger bar etc.

I have a BSc, an MSc, a PGCE and a PhD as well as a good publication list. I am available for dog walking should anyone wish to employ me. I have no regrets at all Miranda and I never ever will. You unleashed a nightmare upon the UK that is now rebounding across the globe. I invite anyone who has ever had trouble with that sodding Gang and their network to use my blog for background info. Lest people fear ‘they’ll pulverise me in Court if I try to take a case against them’, indeed they will try to. But you can take it from me that if you dig, you will uncover lies, bribery, corruption, conspiracy, forged documentation, conflicts of interest, evidence withheld, the lot. If anyone has genuinely told the truth about that lot and has been under attack and smeared, be my guest, go for their jugular, because it is they who are the lying criminals not their victims. But don’t fall for any nonsense about Going For Help to Get Over The Trauma. The well is poisoned, there is no-one in the Helping Professions who will stand up to them without being ruined themselves.

What an irony; I told the Philanderer that things were all OK, because I’d left teaching and begun a PhD. The Gang then moved into Bangor University with me. The Top Docs are now killing them.

On 21 Dec 2004 Rita Thomas, the Trust’s Complaints Co-ordinator, Litigation, received a telephone call from DC Baker of the North Wales Police (phone number 370333 ex 2301) telling her that there was insufficient evidence to charge any staff with offences against me.

On 5 Jan 2005 Kenneth Naughton declared that ‘my concerns were matters for the police and the Trust’s determination to class me as a vexatious complainant was in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Welsh Gov’t.’

Someone else who witnessed so much fuckwittery in Ysbyty Gwynedd whom I remember well was Mrs Gillian Jones, the Trust’s FOI officer. My documents detail Gillian’s letter to me of 14 Jan 2005 re Access To Health Records thanking me for my e mail dated 13 Jan 2005. Mr C. Griffiths, Caldicott/Data Protection Officer, was also party to communications. By the time that I was in touch with Gillian re accessing my files, I was met with lies, more lies and yet more lies, but that was so obviously on the orders of Keith Thomson. When I arranged to meet Gillian to be told the lies made up by Keith Thomson, I was told that I had to be accompanied by PC Dewi Thomas at all times, me being so Dangerous. So I sat in a few meetings with Gillian being told lies while I tried to be polite and ignore the idiocy of the situation. Chit chat with Gillian revealed that she was a graduate of Bangor University who had obviously enjoyed some good Gossips about me. I subsequently found out that like everyone who worked for Keith Thomson, Gillian had been threatened and intimidated, was terrified of Thomson and was desperately looking for another job. I then found Gillian online, networking with other NHS workers on a Gissa Job basis.

Gillian et al knew about the request from the GMC’s Rebecca Townsley, Caseworker, Fitness To Practice Directorate – e mail rtownsley@gmc-uk.org – asking for my medical notes pertaining to my treatment at the Hergest Unit from Jan 2002 until the date of Rebecca’s request. The request was sent to Ysbyty Gwynedd’s Medico-Legal Dept and the notes were requested by 13 Sept 2004. I had signed the consent form to release the records – to be leaked/amended/copied and sent to any interested parties – on 6 March 2004. Of course there was no action taken against any Top Doc. Not even Dr Andy Jones, who was a violent wife beater, caught repeatedly having sex with other members of staff on hospital premises and while he was working as a psychiatrist in the Hergest Unit lost his children to the care of the Social Services on the grounds of extreme neglect and his wife was taken into care for her own safety. Andy had been very violent to a previous partner, who left him and banned him from contacting their son. I knew all about it because for years I lived next door but one to Andy. So he was appointed my Doctor by Sadie Francis when Andy worked as her junior doc after I was sectioned, to ensure that Andy’s story re my Dangerousness was the Official One. Andy was only quietly struck off years later when I told a GP that I had the lowdown on the fate of Andy’s second wife and children…

Andy worked at Hergest alongside another SHO who worked for Sadie, JoeJohn Vattakatuchery. JoeJohn witnessed everything. A Dr Sudhalan’s name is also on my records of 2 July 2002. Dr Babu Hussein was SHO to Sadie in July 2004 and in Nov 2002 was SHO to Do Nothing. Dr Hussein had a habit of quietly appearing on the ward when a patient was about to get a kicking; his presence was appreciated because it stopped the violence. I met Dr Hussein at a later date and asked him why he didn’t grass his colleagues up. He told me that he was a junior overseas doc and Do Nothing and Keith Thomson would have destroyed his career. He will have been right. Dr Hussein is now working as a GP I think and he is a senior doc. Time for Dr Hussein, who seemed so much better than his colleagues, to come forward. Do Nothing and his colleagues were killing people.

Docs more guilty than Dr Hussein include Dr Alwyn Parry, out of hours GP on call on 7 Jan 2003, who refused to treat me after speaking to Andy Jones and Do Nothing. Dr John Morris Jones, out of hours GP on 7 Jan 2003, was told that I was ‘suicidal ++++’ and slammed the phone down on me when I gave my name; documents show that Andy had told Morris Jones had I had ‘set fire to the Hergest Unit on my last admission’ and Do Nothing sent one message if I rang the out of hours GPs: Do Nothing. John Morris Jones is a lay preacher and was the GP in Penygroes. Morris Jones was on duty with GP Dr Karine Oldale who was much nicer than Morris Jones. Karine was the Doc who assessed me as ‘suicidal ++++’ but handed My Case over to Morris Jones and was on her way out of the office when he slammed the phone down on me. Karine was told by Andy not just that I’d set fire to the Hergest, but that I had injunctions  out against me ‘from one consultant psychiatrist, two medical directors and the Arfon CMHT’, and I was not to be treated by anyone. John Morris Jones noted ‘advised to take no action, as known troublemaker’. He went off duty on 8 Jan 2003 at 00-53 am. The message that I was ‘suicidal ++++’ was passed to colleagues at 7-21 am. Even then the advice was ‘Not to follow up’.

Dr Alwyn Parry Qualified at the University of Wales in 1988; Dr John Morris Jones Qualified at Cardiff in 1983. They both Trained at Cardiff when the place was run by George Thomas’s mates and every Top Doc and academic there was concealing organised abuse, as well as that of Gwynne and Dafydd. Most med students at Cardiff dreaded going on placement in north Wales and told each other never to take jobs there. Gren KershawAlwyn Parry and John Morris Jones were highly unusual; whatever could have attracted them to working in a region run by a Gang of murdering old paedophiles?See the source image

Dr Alwyn Parry is a GP at the Llanberis Surgery. That place is notorious, people were going all over the area to escape that practice. I know another person who, like me, gained documentary evidence of serious organised crime at Hergest, only to be called to a meeting with the entire Llanberis practice and told that only one GP there would agree to treat him. This was later denied when the practice was faced with a lawyer. There are also allegations that for years, Llanberis Surgery was involved with massive scams re prescribed drugs.

One of the senior partners at Llanberis is Sonia Maxwell. Her dad was the appalling Terry Maxwell, Clinical Director of the North Wales NHS Trust for years, friend of Gwynne and Dafydd, but one of those who drove Tony Francis to a breakdown; not that Maxwell did it to protect patients, it was a personal feud. Maxwell was a heart-lung specialist and was at the centre of a series of scandals re the wrongdoing of his colleagues, but he never took collective responsibility. See the source imageMaxwell was a Liverpool University graduate and they rang Sonia up and offered her a place to do medicine there ‘because they know her dad’ before she even applied to university. Not that Sonia wanted the place, she went to either the Middlesex a la Gwynne or UCH, a la Bodger. I’ve been told that Sonia has quietly made things difficult for people who supported me; See the source imageshe should be grateful that I’m not a vindictive bitch like her, because one member of her family has massive vulnerabilities because of people like Dafydd don’t they Sonia?

Sonia’s mum was one of the famous Two Old Trollops who provided such entertainment to those of us who lived in the Llandegfan area in the 1980s. How I laughed when I was working at Bangor University years later and someone rang me and told me to go to the Management Centre NOW because one of the Two Old Trollops was in there having coffee ‘and she looks exactly the same as ever’. She did too, it was like Groundhog Day, the same variation on a beehive, the red lipstick and sour look, shiny red sandals that were too dated to even pass as fuck-me shoes…

Both Old Trollops and Terry Maxwell have Passed Over in recent years. Sort of since I began this blog. Terry, loving husband of an Old Trollop.

See previous posts for Maxwell clan information and how Sonia’s sister was the only waitress not to be swindled out of her wages by the landlord and landlady of the Gazelle Hotel on Anglesey, because Terry knew that the ring was in action down there and that the landlord Ken Moulton was flashing at the schoolgirls who were waitressing, so when they tried to fiddle Sonia’s sister, Terry threatened to sue them… When Ken and Barbara Moulton swindled me, Tony Francis told everyone that it was my fault because I was so unpleasant.See the source image

Karine Oldale Qualified at London University in 1994. She is a partner GP in D.G.E. Wood’s old practice in Bangor. Karine arrived in Bangor AFTER all the dreadful media headlines about an alleged paedophile ring operating in the region. See the source imageNorth Wales was obviously the place for Karine, as she filled Wood’s boots. As well as her own no doubt.

John Morris Jones made headlines in 2017 when he announced his Retirement and local celebs – including Hywel Williams, Plaid MP for Arfon and a former psychiatric social worker who originated in Pwllheli and detained people in Denbigh in the Good old Days when Gwynne and Dafydd were busy – were pictured with Vaughan Gething, Welsh Gov’t Health Minister, looking miserable because now that Jones had Retired, there was no Welsh speaking GP in Penygroes. Of course there should be access to be Welsh-speaking GP, most of Penygroes speak Welsh as their first language, but John Morris Jones was so dangerous that the village would be better off with a Foreigner who didn’t leave them to die. After my encounter with him, I enquired about Jones and I was told that he is an absolute bastard and Penygroes was full of people who had lost relatives because of him. No good GPs will work in north Wales because of the presence of John Morris Jones and his mates. See the source imageAnyway, Jones is still on the Medical Register with a licence to practice, so if Hywel Williams MP wants to consult a dangerous sadistic doctor who refuses to treat people in an emergency, then be my guest Hywel, perhaps you can tempt Jones out of retirement if you ask the Pink Blancmange to offer GPs even more than £100k pa and a huge tax free pension pot available at the age of 55. Hywel has a much younger wife and small children and from what I know of Hywel’s wife she’s far too competent to risk her kids’ well-being with Docs like John Morris Jones and I don’t blame her.

A Dr Peter Jones, out of hours GP, on 8 May 2003, noted that there was to be ‘no follow up’ when I rang…

Neither could I gain treatment at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, even once my ‘care’ had been transferred there. As Dr Paul Wright SHO to Dr Neil Davies on 7 Nov 2003 found out. Paul was actually very nice, as was his SHO colleague. After chatting to me, they went off to make arrangements. Dr Wright and his colleague returned looking terrified and told me that they were very sorry, ‘this was not an ideal situation’, but they had been told that the only Doc who could take decisions re me was Do Nothing, although Dr Wright did realise that my care had been transferred to his own boss, Dr Neil Davies. I was told, but very nicely by Dr Wright and his colleague, that I had to leave, because they had been ordered by Do Nothing not to treat me under any circumstances. I explained that I had not had sleep for some 36 hours and they were asking me to drive 30 miles back home. They just looked terrified. See the source imageI drove back home putting myself and everyone else in danger.

This is why there was such a high suicide rate in north west Wales. It really was not Only Me. This was how they treated people and it showed up in the death rates.See the source image Nobody put a stop to it.

 

I don’t know where Gillian Jones and so many of her colleagues are now; if they kept schtum they’ll have reached High Office in the Public Sector. They all knew how serious the criminality of their senior colleagues was and that people were dying. See the source imageWhen Thomson appeared before Cardiff High Court later in 2005 and was threatened with jail for unlawfully withholding my records, his workplace victims knew that they had hit the jackpot.

Awight Gillian! Don’t tell me, a sexually injured corpse was found in Keith Thomson’s swimming pool and ever since it’s been a case of ‘I’m going to tell, I’m going to tell…’ if your promotions and salary rises don’t keep coming.

It was Social Worker D. Owen who took me to Taliesin Ward on 25 Oct 2002…

What was I dealing with throughout these Crazee Days? Among other things, the Ghost of Professor Michael Hutt Past of Guy’s Hospital, a colleague of Uncle Harry, Gwynne and Dafydd’s mates Sex Therapist Jim Watson and Child Psychiatrist Gerard Vaughan and so many more…

Here is the text of an e mail that I sent Jane Hutt on 24 Oct 2019; I have still not received a reply or a reply to subsequent e mails that I have sent to Jane with further information:

Sally Baker baker.sally1@googlemail.com

Thu, Oct 24, 2019, 8:45 AM

to Jane.Hutt
Dear Ms Hutt
Can you please explain why, during your period of service as Health Minister for the Welsh Gov’t, I was: assaulted and injured by four NHS staff whilst detained in a locked ward in the Hergest Unit; denied access to the police to report the assault; arrested and charged myself for ‘threatening to kill’ Alun Davies, the manager of the Hergest Unit, him being in a meeting with your officials in your office when he made numerous calls to the police demanding that I be arrested because of the imminent threat to his life. At least eight NHS staff perjured themselves. The threats to kill charge was withdrawn on the first day of my trial.
While you were Health Minister, I was unlawfully denied access to my medical records. My lawyer subsequently obtained them by summoning the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust before the High Court in Cardiff and among the 10,000 documents released is evidence of serious organised crime, including conspiracy, throughout my many years of dealing with the NHS in Wales and in other regions of the UK. There is also written confirmation that those who repeatedly sectioned me, including when you were Health Minister, were facilitating sexual assaults on patients.
None of my complaints were appropriately investigated at any time.
Should you wish to discuss this with me in person, I would welcome the opportunity, particularly as, so far, the GMC have refused to meet me. So I have had no explanation at all from anyone so far Jane.
After so many years of waiting for answers, I trust that you will reply to this e mail speedily.
regards,
Sally Baker

Previous posts have discussed a number of Top Docs who were either officially Top Docs to the Royal Family or who, such as Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain, were good mates with Top Docs to the Royal Family (see ‘Wimmin’s Wellbeing – The Fortnum and Mason Connection’) and were part of Dafydd and Gwynne’s network, very effectively protecting them from investigation, yet alone prosecution. Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist seems to have been the man with the direct connections/friendships with Royal Docs, Dafydd having spent his career blackmailing people and reminding them just how much wrongdoing will be revealed should any complaints be followed up. That is not surprising, as the rot seems to have been in an advanced state at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh years before Dafydd arrived there to assist.

It seems that Gwynne did something so dreadful in 1957 that it needed the despatching of a few Gov’t Ministers to conceal it including Dennis Vosper the Minister of Health. This was followed by another Gov’t reshuffle not long afterwards and eventually Macmillan’s Night of the Long Knives to then kick Gwynne’s mates out of the Cabinet. See previous posts’. Dafydd qualified as a Top Doc in 1957 and promptly arrived at Denbigh to join Gwynne’s party, being touted as the Nice Young Doctor who was a Radical Welsh Nationalist. Dafydd cared about Little Welsh People!

My post ‘Cymro 007’ discussed how reinforcements in the shape of a security services officer in the guise of Geraint Morgan QC targeted north Wales in 1951; Geraint finally got himself elected as the Tory MP for Denbigh in 1959 and retained the seat until 1983, when the constituency disappeared in a reorganisation. That itself seems to have been yet another exercise in armour plating Gwynne and guess what, more candidates for election queued up who were just as keen as Geraint to ensure that no questions were ever asked about the North Wales Hospital at all.

Previous posts have discussed how much effort was being put into ensuring that Bertrand Russell in particular as well as his friends who lived in the Croesor area were provided with services from Gwynne and later Dafydd. However Russell didn’t relocate to the area until 1955. Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and his wife Amabel, the centre of the Welsh Bloomsbury Set, had lived at Llanfrothen/Cwm Croesor since the early years of the 20th century and were undoubtedly something to do with the bomb proofing of Gwynne and his predecessors. People have been asking me if I think that Clough conducted himself in the manner of Bertrand Russell re serious sexual exploitation; I have no idea, but some of his network did. In these situations, it is always difficult to work out whether someone themselves is participating in organised abuse or whether they are protecting friends/family who are. I suspect that much of the problem is a result of people protecting others…

‘Cymru 007’ described how heavyweight MPs protected Denbigh and Cwm Croesor as far back as the later years of the 19th century and how Denbigh, an asylum in a Welsh speaking area that in those days was isolated and difficult to reach, had a high number of patients being funded by English local authorities even in the 19th century. Then there was Queen Victoria’s financial contribution to the building of the North Wales Hospital; it would not have been built without that because the Welsh authorities claimed that there was insufficient need for such an institution and refused to cough up. See post ‘Cymro 007’.

It would appear that from its very establishment, the North Wales Hospital was inexplicably receiving patients who were not from north Wales, in the way that a century later, the children’s homes of north Wales were full of kids from English metropolitan authorities who were forced into sex work and then returned to their place of origin, after being trapped by the Gang.

I do wonder if Dafydd popped off down to the Maudsley for his ‘training’ after he qualified at Liverpool in 1957 in order to make the right contacts. The Maudsley had a long history of facilitating organised abuse by then (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’) and Dafydd went to work with ‘community psychiatrist’ Dr Bob Hobson, the ultimate in running wards and clinics that doubled up as knocking shops. See post ‘The Mentor’. I can’t imagine that Dafydd had any interest in learning anything or in postgrad study and he certainly wouldn’t have needed that to bag a job at Denbigh. Dafydd was already part of the ring in north Wales/Cheshire before he qualified as a Top Doc, so the most likely explanation is that ambitious plans were laid well before Dafydd qualified and once that happened, the boat was pushed out and Dafydd was sent to the Maudsley to drum up business…

As a medical student Dafydd had become involved with the more violent side of Welsh nationalist activity, making links with Irish Republican activists and visiting them to learn techniques (see eg. ‘A Network Stretching Back Decades…’) and in 1959 he stood as the Plaid candidate for Denbigh. So Dafydd and those supporting him had great ambitions for Dafydd, a sort of Dr Death of north Wales.

So imagine my surprise when I was just doing a bit of reading about the circumstances of Lilibet’s accession to the throne when I happened upon a whole collection of Royal Top Docs, a number of whom were Welsh as well, yet more of whom were colleagues/friends of Dafydd and Gwynne’s Gang. These Top Docs were more who carefully prepared the ground in the London medical schools for the en masse sexploitation of vulnerable people, using their reputations as Royal Top Docs of distinction as a cover. This crowd were at the high status end of Top Doctoring as well, some of them were cardiac surgeons…

I realise that people who saw the film ‘The King’s Speech’ will know about this; I didn’t see it, I don’t watch many films and I don’t bother to watch romantic slush about the Royal Family, although obviously I did miss out here…

So here we go, once again, they are myriad, they are legion. The key player re Gwynne and Dafydd from this de luxe selection box was Sir Clement Price Thomas (22 November 1893-19 March 1973), the ‘pioneering Welsh thoracic surgeon’ most famous for his 1951 operation on King George VI. After qualifying at Westminster Hospital Medical School, Clement Price Thomas was posted to the Middle East at the onset of WW I. He resumed his surgical training on returning to Britain and was ultimately elected onto the surgical team of the Westminster Hospital. Price Thomas was encouraged to pursue thoracic surgery by one of those with a towering reputation in surgery in the first half of the 20th century, Tudor Edwards,

Price Thomas’s reputation in surgery for pulmonary tuberculosis led to the decision that he would undertake lung surgery on King George VI in 1951. Price Thomas was less well known for cardiac surgery, although he also introduced surgery for coarctation of the aorta to the UK, a procedure he learnt from Clarence Crafoord

Clement Price Thomas’s mentor Arthur Tudor Edwards was another Great Man of Medicine who was Welsh to boot. Tudor Edwards taught Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist when Gwynne was at the Middlesex Hospital. Previous posts have discussed Sir William Gilliatt, the Royal Top Doc who delivered Carlo and Princess Anne, who taught at the Middlesex when Gwynne was a student there. Sir William’s son the neurologist Professor Roger Gilliatt was a student at the Middlesex who was just a bit younger than Gwynne. Roger Gilliatt was a close friend of Anthony Armstrong-Jones aka Lord Snowdon and Gilliatt was Snowdon’s best man when Snowdon married Ma’am Darling, the other potential best men Jeremy Thrope and Jeremy Fry both being vetoed because of their ‘private lives’. The private lives in question being Mr Thrope’s previous affairs with both Armstrong-Jones and Ma’am Darling and Jeremy Fry’s prosecution for opportuning for gay sex. See previous posts. Gilliatt, Friend of Gwynne and Dafydd, was actually considered a more acceptable choice for best man.

Dafydd qualified in 1957, suggesting that he enrolled at Liverpool University in 1952, the year after Clement Price Thomas became world famous for operating on King George VI. King George VI didn’t last long after Price Thomas’s heroism and died on 6 Feb 1952, making way for Lilibet. Dafydd went to Liverpool University as a mature student, his arrival there was not the usual one of the result of a boyhood ambition. The timing and circumstances of Dafydd embarking upon a career as a Top Doc are beginning to look rather intriguing…

Arthur Tudor Edwards (7 March 1890-25 August 1946) was a thoracic surgeon who worked at the Westminster Hospital, the Royal Brompton Hospital and Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehampton and pioneered lung surgery. Edwards was born in Swansea on 7 March 1890. Edwards was educated at Mill Hill, London, St John’s College, Cambridge and at the Middlesex Hospital, where he qualified as a Top Doctor in 1913. Edwards was subsequently appointed house surgeon and surgical registrar at the Middlesex Hospital.

Edwards served in the RAMC in WW I. He was the first Director of the Department of Thoracic Surgery at the London Hospital. The London Hospital – known for many years as the Royal London Hospital – is located in Tower Hamlets and by the middle of the 1950s was training the medical students and junior docs who by the 1970s were the big figures in the facilitation of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Gwynne and Dafydd’s partner gang in the East End worked out of the London Hospital from at least the late 1960s. Kids from Tower Hamlets were sent to children’s homes in north Wales and Tower Hamlets was one of those boroughs which decades later did very well out of ‘regeneration’ investment as a result of dirty deals done by those who colluded with the ring. See eg. post ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’.

See the source image

Sir William Asscher was one of the Mr Bigs facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring during his years in Cardiff in the 1960s,70s and 80s and after his return to London as Dean/Principal of St George’s Hospital Medical School in 1988, in the wake of Ollie Brooke the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s being convicted for child porn offences, jailed and released early (see eg. Oliver!’). Asscher was a medical student and junior doc at the London Hospital during the 1950s/early 60s. Lord Bob Winston trained there and spent the rest of his career remaining schtum and Socialist Feminist and Wimmin’s Champ Wendy Savage, one of the facilitators at the Tower Hamlets end of Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang, spent her working life at the London Hospital. See post ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’.

My post ‘Oliver’s Army’ discussed the hub at the London Hospital that was so central to the network that two of those involved, Profs John Ellis and Clifford Wilson, in the late 1960s were given the remit for postgraduate medical training across the whole of London University. The degree of organisation of this network was terrifying; it was Ellis, Clifford and their colleagues who were responsible for placing junior docs in hospitals across the whole of the south of England for decades. One of their main men was Anthony Jackson, who had connections across Bristol/the West Country. Dafydd’s accomplice in north Wales, Dr D.G.E. Wood, trained at Bristol University; Wood’s father was a Top Doc in Bristol. One of the network’s contacts in Taunton was Dr Brian Webb.

The big boys at the London Hospital wielded such power over the careers of juniors that one could either join their circle – medical students and junior docs were cultivated through the Drama Society at the London Hospital and through the usual dinner parties, jollies etc – and do very nicely for oneself, or one could have one’s career ruined. See ‘Oliver’s Army’. I have no idea how many of this lot were actually molesters themselves and how many just kept quiet about those who were. The wall of silence and terror is so high and so solid that I have only worked out a clear picture re a few docs.

The international trafficking ring only really took root in the 1960s/70s, but it was undoubtedly built upon organised abuse that had existed at institutions like the London Hospital, the Middlesex and St George’s for decades. If the roots had not been there, Asscher and his mates could never ever have done what they did. Like the London Hospital which treated the disadvantaged East Enders on its doorstep, the Middlesex had a good supply of prey nearby in the form of Soho. The Middlesex was also located near Bloomsbury, a district of affluent, often bohemian people, a number of whom were known for casual sexual liaisons, sometimes with underaged people who had to be forced into such liaisons.

The presence of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and his wife Amabel – Amabel being a member of the Strachey family at the centre of the Bloomsbury Group – in Llanfrothen/Croesor in north west Wales led to scores of the Bloomsbury Group and their friends spending much time in Cwm Croesor, where they rented cottages from Clough as second homes, so many that they constituted the Welsh Bloomsbury Set. See eg. ‘The Village’, ‘Captain Swing and his Crew’ and ‘The Vermin Club’. Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang serviced the Welsh Bloomsbury Set: sex workers supplied, complainants incarcerated, lobotomies performed etc. I presume that Gwynne met some of those necessary for business when he was at the Middlesex.

Dafydd qualified and joined the party two years after Bertrand Russell made his permanent home down the road from Cwm Croesor.

Arthur Tudor Edwards was responsible for the training of other surgeons as well as Clement Price Thomas who also became leaders in the field, including Harvard surgeon Dwight Harken and Sir Russell Brock.

Tudor Edwards was born in Swansea on 7 March 1890, the elder son of William Edwards of Glamorgan, Chairman of Edwards Limited and Mary Griffith Thomas. Following studies at St John’s College, Cambridge and medical training at the Middlesex Hospital, Edwards was appointed as a dresser (assistant) and house-surgeon to Sir Gordon Gordon-Taylor.

Sir Gordon was born William Gordon Taylor, in Streatham, London, but moved to Aberdeen in 1885 after the death of his father. Sir Gordon was educated at Gordon College and Aberdeen University. The family returned to London and Gordon trained at the Middlesex. After working as a surgeon at the Royal Northern Hospital in north London, Gordon was appointed Assistant Surgeon at the Middlesex Hospital.

During WW I, Sir Gordon served in the RAMC and fought in the Battles of the Somme and Passchendaele. He later acted as consulting surgeon to the 4th Army. After returning to England in in Dec 1916, Sir Gordon established a worldwide reputation as a surgeon, pioneering the techniques of blood transfusion.

During WW II, Sir Gordon served as a Surgeon Rear-Admiral in the Royal Navy. Gwynne served as a Top Doc in the Royal Navy at about that time, as did Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain and others we know and love. They all gained knowledge of whatever it was that Lord Mountbatten was doing that had to be kept quiet, the scandals involving gay spies in the Admiralty, John Vassall etc. It kept them in demand for the rest of their careers. See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’.

They also all knew or knew of Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, who’s wife Lady Juliet and later his son William became paid up members of the Gang. Lady Juliet’s father was Reginald Vick, a surgeon at Bart’s for decades, who knew everyone worth knowing, including Lord Snowdon’s father, Ronald Armstrong-Jones, a barrister who was a Governor of Bart’s as well as Lord Snowdon’s grandfather, Sir Robert, a Top Doc and psychiatrist who grew up in north Wales, studied at UCNW and then Bart’s. The Armstrong-Jones family kept a country house near Caernarfon. See previous posts.

Lady Juliet trained as a social worker at the LSE in the late 1940s, when the LSE was peopled by King of the Westminster Swingers Richard Crossman’s crowd in terms of both staff and students eg. ‘Houseparty’. Crossman appointed loads of his mates from the LSE to advisory positions at the DHSS when he was Secretary of State, 1968-70. It was fun in the DHSS when Richard Crossman ran it, if one knew him and one worked at the LSE, one just turned up to official meetings at the DHSS with one’s mates and their wives and Crossman was delighted to see one.

Harold Wilson became so concerned at Crossman sharing confidential Gov’t documents with people whom Harold had kicked out of the inner circle eg. Crossman’s pal the economist Tommy Balogh – Tommy’s wife Penny was a psychotherapist in Primrose Hill, so Crossman was particularly pleased to have her on board – that Crossman devised ways by which those whom had been ejected could still read the classified stuff. In the case of Tommy Balogh, Crossman ensured that he was given a peerage; it was OK after that, Balogh was back in the inner sanctum and Harold Wilson couldn’t do anything about it. See previous posts.

Lady Juliet worked as a social worker at Bart’s and in middle age ‘got involved’ (took over) at MIND, which was run by Gwynne and Dafydd’s mates anyway and was a front for facilitating organised abuse. After Lady Juliet became Chairman of MIND, her son William, a solicitor, became Legal Director. From there, William became CEO of the Mental Health Act Commission. Throughout it all, the Bingleys protected Dafydd and the Gang.

William later became a Director of Morecombe Bay PCT, the Trust which hit headlines after it was revealed that the idiocy, incompetence and arrogance of three lethal midwives styling themselves ‘the Three Musketeers’ had led to the deaths of a number of babies at the Trust and that the misconduct of these midwives was known about yet concealed. The scale of the negligence and deception only became public as a result of the efforts of James Titcombe, the father of one of the dead babies (his wife nearly died as well). James faced the usual barrage of abuse and hostility from the NHS and as the bad PR threatened to overwhelm everyone, a cordial invitation was extended to James to sit on the CQC. James soon resigned having found the hostility of members of the CQC and bodies such as the RCM impossible to work with. He concluded that there is no desire at all in the NHS to improve patient safety, all that matters is image.

William Bingley also Chaired an NHS Trust in Lancashire and was forced to resign when it was revealed that his management consultancy was flogging its services to the Trust. William died three weeks later when fell walking, at about the time that Operation Pallial was launched. Before he died in 2011 at a most convenient time for anyone trying to eliminate witnesses, William was given a Chair in Mental Health Law and Ethics at the University of Central Lancaster, also held a role at Cumbria University and set up a charidee assisting women in the Pakistan/Kashmir region. Terrifying isn’t it.

 

Sir Gordon was elected President of the Medical Society of London 1941-42, the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland 1944-45 and the Royal Society of Medicine 1944-45.

Sir Gordon met an unfortunate end on 3 Sept 1960 after he was run over by a lorry outside Lord’s cricket ground. When Sir Gordon was run over, Macmillan’s Gov’t was finding it increasingly difficult to conceal the stench of the wrongdoing on the part of so many and there had been a few rounds of musical chairs in an effort to conceal whatever Gwynne was doing at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. Dafydd was I think undertaking his postgrad ‘training’ at the Maudsley at about the time of Sir Gordon’s death. In Sept 1960, Dafydd’s and Gwynne’s mates who were eventually kicked out of the Cabinet in July 1962 in the Night of the Long Knives were still in there causing havoc. Macmillan had reshuffled his Ministers in July 1960 and Enoch Powell had been appointed Minister of Health.

In previous posts I have explained why I believe that Powell may have been part of an elaborate deception on the part of Macmillan’s Gov’t in that Powell ensured that Gwynne and Dafydd would be left well-alone by making a public display of horror with regard to conditions at Denbigh in 1961, then giving a well-publicised speech to the National Association of Mental Health (MIND), which was completely run by Gwynne and Dafydd’s mates, stating that he would close every asylum in the country, but quietly dropped that plan and never returned to the subject. Powell subsequently remained silent throughout the Profumo Affair, with which Gwynne and Dafydd were involved but escaped without a mention.

Conditions at Denbigh remained atrocious, this was known, but Dafydd and Gwynne were left completely untouched, even after Dafydd hit the front page of ‘The Times’ in 1966, at the centre of a serious patient neglect and abuse scandal. Nothing changed and there was no investigation or inquiry into Denbigh. Denbigh has never been the subject of a Public Inquiry in the way that so many other institutions of that type were during the 1970s and 80s. Yet conditions there and the naked criminality of the staff were known to be far worse than in other institutions such as Ely, which was the subject of the first such Inquiry in 1968. The Welsh Hospital Board that ran Ely also ran Denbigh. In their defence, staff at Ely, after being caught punching patients, dragging them down corridors and hosing them down outside naked with cold water, said that things were much worse at Denbigh but no-one was complaining about that. See previous posts.

The molester George Thomas was a member of the Welsh Hospital Board, as was the MP Lord Prys-Davies. They were both mates with Dafydd and Gwynne and by the time that the Ely Inquiry was being planned, Health and Social Care had been devolved to the Welsh Office, the Secretary of State being one George Thomas by then. See previous posts.

 

Ma’am Darling and Lord Snowdon had married on 6 May 1960, four months before Sir Gordon was killed. My post ‘Holding The Country To Ransom- Part II’ discussed the sudden decision of Ma’am Darling to marry Lord S, a decision made after Ma’am Darling’s Deeply Held Christian Beliefs prevented her from marrying Captain Peter Townsend, him being divorced and therefore Ma’am Darling would not be able to receive Communion if she were to marry him. Ma’am Darling publicly announced her engagement to the class A drug snorting, rent boy using Tony Armstrong-Jones – who used to stay at his grandfather’s country home near Caernarfon – on 26 Feb 1960. Ma’am Darling reportedly accepted Tony’s proposal the day after learning from Peter Townsend that he intended to marry a young Belgian woman, Marie-Luce Jamagne.

Ma’am Darling’s marriage to Tony didn’t run smoothly but she found solace in her Strongly Held Christian Beliefs.

Here’s Ma’am Darling, about to receive Communion, something that would not have been possible had she married a Divorced Man:

After Communion:

  • Ma’am Darling’s partying on Mustique with Roddy Llewellyn, David Bowie, Mick Jagger and Charlie Tennant – a heroin addict who succumbed to HIV and Hepatitis in 1996 so that was another witness out of the way before the Waterhouse Inquiry opened soon afterwards – and others is discussed in previous posts, as is Roddy’s dreadful brother Dai, the self-styled Seducer Of The Valleys. The valleys of south Wales that is, the south Wales from where the clutch of Royal Medical Heroes discussed in this post emanated.
  • My post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’ discussed Drs Ann and Peter Dally, dealers to the stars, their empire being facilitated by the corrupt Home Office Drugs Branch mandarin Bing Spear, who was also a great help to Dafydd. Ann Dally was suspended by the GMC after finding herself the subject of a police investigation in the 1980s, but the GMC very soon changed their mind about Ann’s unfitness to practice when it became public that Ann and Peter Dally had Patients Who Were Royals. The GMC’s change of mind might have been assisted by the Chairman at the time being Lord John Walton, Gwynne’s mate, who had refused to investigate all complaints made to the GMC by me about Gwynne and Dafydd. Bing and the rest of the Dally support network won’t have missed the blackmailing opportunity.

Ann Dally later wrote a book about her Ordeal, which was prefaced by a statement of support from Wendy Savage, another Woman Doctor who found herself Fighting The Male Medical Establishment. There was no explanation of why Socialist Feminist Wendy who hated the Tories was giving her support to Harley Street and Royal Doc Ann, who could get patients out of any mess at all but only if they paid her a lot of money. Ann, like Dafydd, did find herself at the centre of drama quite inadvertently. Before she became a dealer to the stars, Ann tried her hand at Sex Education and found herself investigated by the Obscene Publications Squad.

As a medical student at Tommy’s in the late 1950s Ann had been keen to help with the illegal abortions that she admits were taking place routinely. Ann told her readers that the abortions weren’t illegal. Yes they were Ann, it is why women could only get them if they paid you and why Tommy’s and your mate Sir Dugald Baird et al at Aberdeen University were the only two teams of Docs admitting to performing abortions under such circumstances. For some reason Dugald wielded power over Gov’t as did the docs at Tommy’s… See previous posts. Other docs certainly broke the law by performing abortions in return for cash, but on a smaller scale and they didn’t wave it under people’s noses; illegal abortions were freely available in north Wales and Chester for those with dosh. See previous posts.

Sir Dugald and his team aborted babies on ‘socio-economic grounds’ ie. because the parents of the babies were poor. Sir Dugald had no problem with wealthy people having big families, indeed he had a big brood himself, but he did not like poor people having kids. So he gave them abortions. Sir Dugald was so enthusiastic about his that the effects of his practice showed up in statistics. Everyone in medicine knew what Dugald was doing and he was doing it decades before the passing of the 1967 Abortion Act. I’m wondering if Sir Dugald did what he wanted for years in Aberdeen because of Bob Boothby’s presence as a constituency Tory MP in the area for such a long time. Bob who had an affair with Harold Macmillan’s wife Dorothy for decades, Bob who was also keen on rent boys and had a relationship with Ronnie Kray. Bob who became Lord Bob, Bob of serious organised crime in high places including among the Stars. See previous posts.

Richard Crossman’s ‘Diaries’ discussed the abortion legislation both before and after the 1967 Abortion Act being widely flouted by  ‘private nursing homes’, but Crossman admitted that the Gov’t didn’t dare take on the Top Docs.

  • Although many accounts of Sir Gordon’s death state that he was hit by a lorry, the Royal College of Surgeon’s Plarr’s ‘Lives of the Fellows’ states that it was a car:
  • A keen cricketer and member of the MCC, he was a regular attender at Lords, and it was one evening on leaving the ground that he was struck down by a motor car, sustaining injuries from which he died. A touch of irony, as he was an inveterate walker and detested motor cars, and never had any desire to drive one; having sold his Rolls at the outbreak of war in 1939, he never subsequently owned a car.

    Uncle Harry, who, along with his colleagues, Did It For The Poor:

    It must be obvious to any reader of this tale of achievement that this was no ordinary man: indeed he was rightly regarded as the doyen of surgery of his generation. Few men, if indeed any others have inspired such universal respect, admiration and affection. Pre-eminent as a surgeon himself, he performed over one hundred hind-quarter amputations, his joy was to educate, instruct and help young surgeons from all over the world. In Australia his was a name to conjure with, and at the Middlesex out of his forty house surgeons twenty-five achieved consultant status, and of these, twelve at the Middlesex itself.

    He never forgot a face and, more important, the name that went with it. Christmas cards, penned in his own florid handwriting, were sent every year to surgeons all over the world. He lived for surgery and to keep himself fit always walked and became an expert ballroom dancer. He delighted to entertain visiting surgeons in the Oriental Club or his beloved Ritz, and, although abstemious himself, he was a connoisseur of food and wine.

    His dapper, trim figure in double-breasted jacket, hatless and with bowtie and wing collar, complete with the pink carnation in the button hole, brought a thrill of excitement to any surgeon lucky enough to encounter him and to be recognised immediately and addressed by name.

    Image result for professor harry keen images

    He was indeed, as Sir Arthur Porritt, the President, described him in his funeral oration quoting Chaucer’s words, “a very parfit gentil knight”…

    Sir Arthur was a towering Top Doc of a Very Posh nature and a previous era, the father of ecologist and Green Party politician Jonathan Porritt. See previous posts for info on both Porritts.

    He died in the Middlesex Hospital following an accident on 3 September 1960. He was cremated at Golder’s Green on 8 September, D H Patey reading the lesson. A memorial service was held in All Souls, Langham Place on Thursday 13 October 1960, conducted by the Vicar and by the Chaplain of the Middlesex Hospital. The oration was delivered by Sir Arthur Porritt, who was supported by the Council of the College. The lesson was read by T Holmes Sellors, and the church was filled by representatives of many learned societies and Sir Gordon’s colleagues, friends and patients…

    At the outbreak of WW I, Arthur Tudor Edwards was assigned to the RAMC where he worked under Sir Cuthbert Sidney Wallace . We are told that Edwards’s ‘evolving new surgical practices in war victims left a vast impression on military medicine’. Translated, that means that Tudor Edwards experimented upon soldiers who had been injured. I am someone who accepts that new techniques must be tried and thus ‘experimentation’ is inevitable, there is no way around this and experimentation does not have to be unethical. However in Edwards’ day it nearly always was not.
    The general public are largely unaware of the contempt in which the Top Docs held their patients, it really was atrocious. ‘Your body is ours, we will not consult you or inform you, even in the event of you sustaining serious harm, even that leading to death and one word of dissent and you will be met with an entire profession screaming How Very Dare You and lying through their teeth’. This matters even today. Gwynne was of that era and although most of his colleagues in 1984 were not, when I raised concerns, no-one could cope with it at all, no-one, the crap to be concealed re Gwynne was just so great that the entire medical profession went into meltdown every time that I mentioned his name.

Furthermore in Arthur Tudor Edwards’ day, class bias was enormous and taken for granted; Officers were afforded a degree of respect that just was not evident in Top Docs’ dealings with Other Ranks.

After WW I, Tudor Edwards took a post as assistant surgeon to Gordon-Taylor at the Westminster Hospital and surgeon to the Brompton Hospital, where he was assisted by Clement Price Thomas. The interwar years were occupied with ‘pioneering intense surgery’. The treatment of war injuries, taught by surgeons Pierre Delbet and G E Gask, was applied to peacetime diseases. Edwards investigated the surgery of pulmonary tuberculosis, bronchiectasis and lung tumours and became an acknowledged expert in the area, with the backing of his colleague the physician R. A. Young and his anaesthetist Ivan Magill.

Sir Robert Arthur Young, (6 November 1871-22 August 1959), known as R. A. Young, was a TB specialist. Young was born in the village of Hilborough, Norfolk. His dad was a labourer and his mum was illiterate, signing the registration of RA’s birth with her mark. Somehow RA ended up at Westminster City School and then King’s College, London, graduating in physiology before training as a Top Doc at the Middlesex. RA also became a Licentiate of the Society of Apothecaries. He was elected Member of the Royal College of Physicians and Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians.

RA carried out postgraduate work in Vienna. Although RA wasn’t a psychiatrist, if he studied in Vienna at the turn of the century he will have undoubtedly encountered the Fruedian contingent there because they were so dominant in medicine, exerting an effect on disciplines outside of psychiatry. Some of them at least caused havoc as their work was imported into the UK over the following years, as it provided a perfect excuse for organised abuse and the concealing of the associated criminality.

Amabel Williams-Ellis’s relatives James and Alix Strachey were the two Freudian analysts who translated the complete works of Freud into English and their text remains the standard text today. See eg. post ‘The Vermin Club’. Ernest Jones, the psychiatrist from south Wales who managed to kill his new wife Morfydd Llwyn by chloroform poisoning while he performed DIY abdominal surgery on her in his parents-in-law house in south Wales but didn’t have to answer any difficult questions, was the doc who was substantially responsible for introducing Freud’s work to Britain.

Ernest Jones had died by the time that Dafydd entered the fray proper, but he did influence Gwynne and Gwynne was still using Ernest’s techniques to excuse himself when Brown and I complained about Gwynne in 1984. In Brown’s letter of complaint to D.G.E. Wood, he referred to Gwynne’s use of ‘discredited psychoanalytic theory’. Straight from Ernest in the 1940s…

Ernest Jones was mates with Kate Roberts, the Welsh novelist who grew up near Caernarfon, trained as a teacher at UCNW, then married and moved to Denbigh, where she spent the rest of her life. Kate was either seriously unhappy or clinically depressed and her husband was gay, although that has only been acknowledged relatively recently. Kate outlived her husband by decades; she died on 4 April 1985, after a lifetime spent as a Welsh language and Plaid activist, campaigning for Plaid and publishing literature in support of the party using Gwasg Gee, the publishing house at Denbigh that Kate owned.

Kate’s many novels of the Duw It’s Hard variety don’t mention how much harder it was for people incarcerated in Denbigh and their families, one has to read ‘Un Nos Ola Leuad’ (‘One Moonlit Night’) by Caradog Prichard for that. It is one of my favourite books, but the Gang put it to good use! One Moonlit Night was broadcast in Radio 4’s ‘Afternoon Play’ series on 28 March 1996. Just before The Hague announced that there would a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse scandal. It was in spring 1996 that the Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974 was submitted to Clwyd County Council and completely suppressed, then pulped, on the basis of legal advice given to the Council’s insurance company, Municipal Mutual, from Michael Beloff QC. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’

Michael Beloff is a colleague and friend of Miranda and Tony and a Human Rights lawyer. Michael’s dad Lord Max was a friend of Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council when the ring in north Wales enjoyed themselves in the children’s homes run by the Council. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ Ioan lived in Bethesda, which was where Caradog Prichard grew up and set his novel. I l was living in Bethesda in 1996. Dafydd grew up in Bethesda too!

Ooh no-one knew if Caradog’s novel was based on reality or was all the imagination of the mentally ill central character ewe know, the sexual assaults, the transvestism, the murder, his mother being dragged away to Denbigh and never seen again for decades, the underaged sex ooh all set in Bethesda, ooh well it was The Old Days wasn’t it, bechod…

When the investigations and inquiries into a possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire began, the Welsh Cultural World rediscovered Kate Roberts’s work and there was much media coverage of The Queen Of Our Literature. Kate’s novels were all republished by er Gwasg Gee, the publishing house that Kate had owned, even those novels that she herself had not considered worth publishing when she was alive. Someone in the US also robustly promoted Kate’s work at the time. See post ‘Feet In Chains’.

As a young woman, Kate had spent a few years teaching in south Wales. At the same time as this friend/customer of Gwynne and Dafydd’s who doubled up as a leading Methodist:

Furthermore George Thomas was active in the NUT…

After his time in Vienna, RA Young returned to London to work as a junior doc at the Middlesex and Brompton Hospitals and also later at the King Edward VII Sanatorium near Midhurst, Sussex. RA’s students at the Middlesex Hospital included renowned neurologist Paul Sandifer. RA Young established a Harley Street practice, continuing there long after his retirement from the Middlesex Hospital in 1936, which made him a very wealthy man.

They Do It For The Poor!

RA advised on King George VI’s lung cancer in 1951. At various times RA also served as lecturer, Warden of the Middlesex Hospital Medical College, pathologist and museum curator at the Middlesex Hospital.

RA Young chaired the National Association for the Prevention of Tuberculosis.

RA died on 22 Aug 1959, by which time Gwynne’s crimes were causing ructions in Macmillan’s Gov’t.

Supermac will hold another reshuffle shortly! Best of all on 8 Oct 1959, Geraint Morgan QC was elected as the Tory MP for Denbigh; Geraint won as a result of the Liberal Party co-operating with him at a Time Of National Crisis. See previous posts and ‘Cymro 007’.

Gwynne had his famous slightly older peer Paul Sandifer to provide scaffolding for a while, but ooh dear, Professor Paul didn’t make old bones, like so many…

Paul Harmer Sandifer (25 April 1908-29 December 1964) is considered one of the early founders of paediatric neurology in Great Britain.

The Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online tells us:

Paul Harmer Sandifer

b.25 April 1908 d.29 December 1964
DPM Eng(1937) MRCS LRCP(1934) MRCP(1936) FRCP(1950)

Paul Sandifer, son of Dr Henry Stephen Sandifer, M.D., a Kensington general practitioner, 

Dr Henry will have been Doing It For The Poor in Kensington

and of Evelyn Lee, was educated at Mill Hill School. His medical school was the Middlesex Hospital, where he excelled himself in athletics, being at one time victor ludorum as well as captain of the Rugby football team. After qualification he served at the Middlesex Hospital as house physician to Dr Douglas MacAlpine in the neurological department, to Sir Alan Moncrieff in the department of paediatrics, and to Sir Robert Young and Dr G. E. Beaumont. At the Brompton Hospital in 1935 he became house physician to Dr Beaumont and Dr Clifford Hoyle. He returned to the Middlesex Hospital in 1936 as casualty medical officer. The following year he held a residency at the Maudsley Hospital, which helped him to attain the diploma of psychological medicine.

At this time academic standards at the Maudsley were laughable and the institution was dominated by some impressively mad, offensive Top Docs, such as Sir Aubrey Lewis. Some of the senior docs at the Maudsley during that era had connections with the German Top Docs who later took part in the Holocaust. One Maudsley Top Doc had attended a conference – and published – with one of the Nazi docs who was one of the Brains behind the gas chambers. Some of those docs were still at the Maudsley when Dafydd ‘trained’ there. See previous posts eg. ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ and ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’

With this impressive clinical background he went to the National Hospital, Queen Square, where, up to the outbreak of the War, he served first as house physician, and later as senior resident medical officer.

The National Hospital at Queen Square was where Roger Gilliatt made his reputation. According to Roger Gilliatt’s obituarists, the National Hospital at Queen Square was nowt but a tin shed staffed by a few incompetents until Roger arrived and transformed it into a Global Leader during the 1960s. See previous posts. So what did Paul Sandifer learn at Queen’s Square if what we are told about Roger is true?

During the Second World War he was appointed initially neurologist to Sector 5 of the Emergency Medical Service. He then entered the Royal Air Force as a neuropsychiatrist, and rose to the rank of wing commander. He continued as civilian consultant in neuropsychiatry in the R.A.F, from 1946 until 1951.

It was the neuropsychiatrists who were enthusiastic about psychosurgery. Paul Sandifer was of the generation of neuropsychiatrists who practised during the years of Peak Lobotomy.

In 1946 he was appointed assistant physician to the Maida Vale Hospital for Nervous Disorders, and also to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. Two years later he became neurologist to the Mount Vernon Hospital and Radium Institute. From 1948 until 1953 he was also neurologist to the Oxford Regional Hospital Board.

Previous posts have discussed the Oxford Regional Hospital Board and how for years during the 1960s and 70s it was Chaired by Richard Crossman’s pal Dame Isabel Graham Bryce. Dame Isabel’s husband was Alexander Graham Bryce, who worked as a thoracic surgeon in Manchester during the 1930s and 40s. Pre-WW II, Dame Isabel sat on various NHS Boards in Manchester, including that of Manchester Children’s Hospital. Dame Isabel and her husband were part of high society, they’ll have known the big wigs in Manchester at the time who were concealing organised abuse and criminality, including that based at the North Wales Hospital and the activities of the Welsh Bloomsbury Group at Cwm Croesor. Then the Dame and her husband moved south and she began running the NHS in the Oxford area, as well as sitting on numerous bodies concerned with health and welfare, including regulatory and training bodies. See post ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’

Although there was an elite university down the road, Oxford hosted the Cowley Road Hospital, a long-stay institution in which patients were so scandalously neglected and abused that once Rosemary Rue – a Top Doc with a physical disability who faced such bigotry from The Profession that as a young Top Doc she was rendered virtually unemployable – discovered what was going on there in the late 1960s her career rocketed skywards. Rosemary had added ammunition as well as the standard ‘I witnessed what state those patients were in’: Rosemary’s friend was punched in the face by a Top Doc who worked at Cowley Road. Why? Because Rosemary’s friend was a Darkie and the Top Doc at Cowley didn’t think that a Darkie should be sharing a flat (and I suspect a bed) with a White Lady Doctor.

Rosemary ended her career as Dame Rosemary Rue, one of the most senior women in NHS management/governance after Ken Clarke Reorganised The NHS in the 1980s. Thanks to Ken, Dame Rosemary was the Boss Lady of the Regional Health Authority serving Oxfordshire and the neighbouring counties. There was a sizeable problem with class A drug use and sexual exploitation in Oxford and Oxfordshire which continued unhindered by the Dame, but she received accolades nonetheless. See post ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’

Rosemary Rue

Oxfordshire also hosted the notorious Littlemore Hospital, an asylum which Richard Crossman visited as an Oxford City Councillor in the 1930s and never forgot the gothic spectacle that greeted him. Crossman returned to Littlemore when he was Wilson’s Secretary of State at the DHSS, by which time Dame Isabel had chaired the Regional Health Board for some years and was delighted to see that Littlemore had been transformed, with a lick of paint and new curtains. See ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’. Yet other entries in his ‘Diaries’ make it clear that Crossman rated Isabel so highly because she was highly effective at concealing the serious abuse of patients at Littlemore and other institutions.

The caring professionals of Oxfordshire didn’t just sexually exploit and neglect vulnerable adults, they had fun with children in care as well. The ring of child abusers in Oxfordshire was facilitated for many years by social work manager Barbara Kahan and her husband, child psychiatrist Dr Vladimir Kahan. Babs was the manager of social worker Louis Minster, who, when he later became Director of Social Services for Richmond-upon-Thames, was discovered to be an active paedophile who was abusing kids in care. The notorious Elm Guest House was located near Richmond, the venue for a collection of VIP child abusers, including it is alleged Cyril Smith and Leon Brittan.

At one point the police planned a raid on a B&B where Louis Minster was expected to attend a kiddie sex session. Because it was predicted that children would need to be taken to a Place Of Safety, the police gave the Social Services advanced warning of the raid and asked for social work presence. The Social Services Shared The Information with Louis, him being the boss and he changed his plans. The raid went ahead, nothing suspicious was found and the world was reassured once again that allegations of en masse abuse of kids in care by the Safeguarders themselves was all stuff and nonsense.

Mind how you go Mr Minster Sir!

Babs Kahan was appointed a Gov’t children’s social work adviser to Keith Joseph, Heath’s Secretary of State for the DHSS. Babs served as Joseph’s adviser throughout Heath’s term of office and hung around as a Gov’t adviser long after Heath had gone.

Keith Joseph was in the thick of the Ministers who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring, Dafydd, Gwynne et al. Joseph was an MP for a Leeds constituency in Jimmy Savile Central and among his many roles, he was Secretary of State for the DES, 11 Sept 1981-21 May 1986. So Joseph was in post from approx. two weeks before I arrived at UCNW for Freshers’ Week until shortly after my friend Anne, a PhD student at UCNW was killed by the Gang. Gwynne was sitting in the Student Health Centre when Joseph was appointed, remained there through much of Joseph’s incumbency and died a few months after Joseph stepped down from the DES. I was the student who kicked up the biggest fuss about Gwynne, but there were many other complaints and the whole institution was being used as a vehicle for the Gang anyway.

Before Keith Joseph entered politics he was involved with the family business, the construction company Bovis and trained as a barrister. Joseph was, like Ronnie Waterhouse, a member of Middle Temple. From 1959, Joseph served in a number of junior posts in Macmillan’s Govt and then during the Night Of The Long Knives, Macmillan appointed him Minister for Housing and Local Government. Joseph replaced Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate, the dreadful Top Doc Lord Charles Hill, who had been ejected from the Cabinet along with a few other mates of Gwynne and Dafydd’s. Joseph was Minister for Housing and Local Gov’t, 13 July 1962-16 Oct 1964, serving under Douglas-Home after Macmillan stood down.

Therefore Joseph not only knew about Dafydd and Gwynne’s criminality, but he knew who concealed it and how and then he too had to keep a lid on it after Macmillan had kicked Dafydd and Gwynne’s mates out of the Cabinet during the Night Of The Long Knives.

Joseph was in Gov’t along with Edward du Cann when my grandfather was denouncing du Cann as a crook and when Maurice Macmillan was swindling my father. See post ‘Shurely Shome Mishtake’.

Keith Joseph was of course considered to be the intellectual origin of Thatcherism but blew his own chances of becoming Tory Leader in 1975 by making a speech in which he expressed his concerns that the poor were breeding like rabbits and would soon outnumber Nice People, thus causing an imbalance in society. Or that is the official line. They were all such vipers that the real reason may have been very different. Thatch wanted to be Leaderene and she had been encouraged to stand and was then robustly supported by none other than Sir Peter Morrison, who by then had become the MP for Chester and was using the services of Dafydd and Gwynne. Thatch knew about the Gang and was personally friends with three of the members, Morrison, George Thomas and Savile. It is entirely possible that Morrison and his mates themselves blackmailed Joseph and forced him to drop his leadership ambitions to make way for Thatch and the eugenics-themed speech was used as an excuse…

It was Edward du Cann who had organised the attempted overthrow of Ted Heath as Leader because du Cann wanted that particular job. du Cann had to forget about that ambition after the collapse of one of his companies which in characteristic du Cann style left many people out of pocket but not du Cann. See post ‘The Milk Street and Other Mafias’.

My grandfather was denouncing du Cann as a crook long before it became clear that du Cann was indeed a crook. I have previously discussed on this blog the info that I have received informing me that I was targeted because of my grandfather challenging du Cann, who was involved in businesses with some of Dafydd and Gwynne’s network. There is a hint that my grandfather’s voluble denouncing of du Cann’s dishonesty may have been one of the reasons why du Cann eventually found himself tripped up and his Tory leadership plans scuppered. I doubt that my grandfather would have had the power to have done that, but somebody else may have used the info to shaft du Cann.

Previous posts have mentioned that whereas my grandfather and father were rude about Tom King, the Tory MP for Bridgwater who succeeded Gerald Wills, the Tory for whom my grandfather campaigned, maintaining that King was an unprincipled git, other relatives of mine were not so hostile to Tom King and worked for the constituency Tory Party during the 1970s. One of them had lunch with Thatch as well when Thatch was Education Secretary; Thatch will have already had leadership plans by then no matter how often she affected her ‘Ooh no there’ll never be a woman Prime Minister in my lifetime’ line.

I suspect that those working on behalf of King and dining with Thatch were all ruthlessly manipulated by a load of unscrupulous politicians on the make who were prepared to collude with a gang of paedophiles in order to get into Gov’t. For years Brown and I presumed that Bridgwater remained a town with economic and social problems compared with so much of the rest of Somerset because Tom King wasn’t actually interested in Bridgwater, neglected his constituency and wouldn’t make an effort to improve matters. It seems to have been rather worse than that. The picture that I am building up is that of Lord King and his wife Jane of One Sausage Roll All Evening actively colluding with the shafting of Bridgwater and its constituents -and in particular Brown and me – in return for King bagging ever more impressive Cabinet posts. Commentators and comedians such as ‘Spitting Image’ always noted King’s mysterious rise through the Tory Party based on an obvious lack of ability or achievement. The mystery can be solved when one considers that a branch of Dafydd and Gwynne’s business operated in the Bridgwater area and that Brown and I challenged the Gang, both of us coming from Tory families in the Bridgwater area. It did wonders for Tom King’s career. Furthermore my grandfather had died when I was 13 so he wasn’t around to do battle with King et al.

Now here’s something interesting. King became MP for Bridgwater after Gerald Wills died suddenly while in office. My grandfather was suddenly put out of action not long afterwards; he didn’t die until I was13, but he had a big stroke which left him paralysed down one side not long after Gerald Wills died. Grandpa was still the Chairman of his company in Bridgwater and busy with the Tories. There was a major panic and attempts to effectively hold Board meetings with grandpa in hospital after a few days when he (unexpectedly) lived and even managed to say a few words.

Immediately after his stroke my grandfather was in Frenchay Hospital in Bristol and then he was transferred to Musgrove Park in Taunton. I can’t remember in which hospital it happened, but he nearly pegged out all over again in hospital. Firstly because he fell out of bed, sustained an injury and the Angels ‘didn’t realise’ and then because his alarm button was placed on his paralysed side so he couldn’t reach it…

The rationale that the Angels gave for not knowing that grandpa had fallen out of bed was an interesting one. It was because he was a private patient in a private room so ooh if only he’d not been a private patient… At that time the NHS unions were giving Ted Heath’s Gov’t a hard time (although it had been the BMA who had effectively won Heath the election in 1970 by making a point of supporting him not Harold Wilson) and one of the flashpoints was private beds within NHS hospitals…

For what its worth I’m firmly of the opinion that patients are at risk from Top Docs and Angels involved in crime whether they are NHS or private patients.

Then there was the row between my grandfather and the Top Docs at the Nuffield Hospital in Taunton after my grandfather alleged that the Angels were running a prostitution racket there. The Top Docs declared grandpa to be mad and threatened to section him if he was not taken home, although they still charged him for the weeks that he’d booked in advance. I was later told that there was indeed a prostitution racket in the Nuffield, it was an outpost of the prostitution racket in the NHS hospitals in Taunton. See previous posts.

Dafydd held ‘clinics’ at the Grosvenor Nuffield Hospital at Chester. Carlo’s friend Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, the 6th Duke of Westminster – who was President of Chester Constituency Conservative Association while Peter Morrison was the constituency MP – was a Committee Member of Nuffield Hospitals from 1995 until his death in Aug 2016. Richard Crossman’s ‘Diaries’ mention that the Abortion Act 1967 was routinely flouted by the Nuffield Hospitals and the Gov’t were impotent in the face of the medical profession. Previous posts eg. ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’ discuss how until about 1990, every Top Doc in north Wales was part of an unlawful conspiracy to deny all women NHS abortions, although women were referred on demand to a ‘private clinic’ in Chester, which was known to be so dangerous that in the past, women’s lives had been put at risk. At least one private facility providing terminations in Chester was the Grosvenor Nuffield Hospital.

In the wake of the late 1980s Staffordshire Pindown Scandal, Babs Kahan was appointed to Co-Chair the subsequent Public Inquiry, along with Sir Allen Levy QC. Babs and Levy found Terrible Abuse of children in Staffordshire, but as with the Jillings Report, they didn’t fess up just how terrible, that it was directly linked to organised abuse rings in other parts of the UK and that it had impacted on the local NHS leading to disaster and that had been concealed by everyone as well. Allan Levy has worked with the GMC and Top Doctors. See previous posts.

Babs’s CV also boasts of Babs’s work with Peter Righton, the social work academic who was convicted of child sex offences. Babs explained that Righton was a Cunning Paedophile who had Duped her and that she hadn’t wanted to stigmatise him for Being Gay. Babs worked with the NCB (National Children’s Bureau). Sir Paul Ennals, son of Dafydd’s mate Lord David Ennals, served as the CEO of the NCB.

See previous posts for info on Minister, Levy, Ennals, Righton and eg. ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’ for gen on Babs.

From 1949-67, Dr John Fisher Owen aka JOF Davies was Senior Administrative Medical Officer to the Oxford Regional Hospital Board. JOF was yet another Middlesex trained Top Doc who was a mate of Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist. From 1961-63, JOF was seconded to the Ministry of Health as Senior Principal Medical Officer. So Gwynne’s mate was called to the highest echelons in the Ministry of Health when Enoch Powell was Harold Macmillan’s Health Minister, when Macmillan knew that the Profumo Affair might become horribly public and JOF remained in post as the Profumo Affair subsequently splattered Macmillan’s Gov’t. It was in 1961 that Powell visited Denbigh, made the publish display of ‘I’ll close you lot down for this’, returned to London, made one public speech in which he repeated his plans to close every asylum in the country and then backed off and remained silent for ever more. There are no references as to why in the Powell papers, or so the archivist responsible told me, but perhaps I ought to take a look at those papers myself before I take their word for granted. Although one has to book an appointment to rifle through Powell’s papers, HOLD ON EVERYONE, SALLY BAKER’S ON HER WAY, LET’S REMOVE ALL REFERENCES TO GWYNNE AND DAFYDD…

For many years post-WW II, Dr John Owen Fisher aka ‘JOF’ Davies was the most senior administrative Top Doc in the Oxfordshire Regional Health Authority. JOF was also seconded to work in a senior capacity in the Ministry of Health. In 1965 JOF was made an honorary Doc to Lilibet and given a CBE.

JOF qualified at the Middlesex and was yet another buddy of Gwynne’s. JOF’s BMJ obit curiously stated that it was JOF and his colleague John Ravens (another senior Top Doc who held roles in NHS Governance in that era, including as Chair of the Wessex Regional Health Board) who ensured that Enoch Powell’s 1961 Hospital Plan (the document which proposed the closure of the asylums) was ‘made possible’ by implementing it in their own regions. But it is a matter of historical fact that the 1961 Hospital Plan was rewritten with the bit re closing the asylums omitted, the Hospital Plan then simply being one of Investing In New Hospitals! It was a winner!!

So Gwynne’s mate JOF found himself at the top of the Ministry of Health under Macmillan, while the shit hit the fan re Profumo and Gwynne continued lobotomising and Dafydd continued shagging at Denbigh. JOF was in fact one of those who ensured that the asylums, particularly Denbigh, were not closed…

The Chief Medical Officer when JOF was at the top of the Ministry of Health was the old crook Sir George Godber, who when Deputy CMO had helped Nye establish the NHS. See previous posts. Godber’s brother I am sure was Joseph Godber who was the Tory MP for Grantham as Thatch rose up through the Tory Party. The Godbers went to Bedford School, a sort of training ground for future members of the security services, along with Geraint Morgan QC. See post ‘Cymro 007!’

JOF qualified at the Middlesex in 1931, probably a few years before Gwynne. After qualification, JOF was Deputy Medical Officer of Health to the Borough of Willesden and Principal Assistant Medical Officer to Middlesex County Council. He was later Deputy Senior Administrative Medical Officer to the North West Metropolitan Regional Board and then in 1949, JOF took up the senior role with Oxford Regional Hospital Board. The North West Metropolitan Regional Board will have covered Hampstead/Camden area. As discussed in previous posts, many of those who facilitated organised abuse were the affluent professionals (including Top Docs) and politicians from across the spectrum living in the Hampstead area and those being exploited slummed it on the other side of the tracks at St Pancras/Holborn.

The Labour MP for St Pancras North, 1949-70 was Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson, who succeeded Powell as Health Minister. Sir Kenneth was a leading light in MIND and covered up a mountain of crap in the NHS but was the subject of contempt from Richard Crossman because as far as Crossman was concerned, Robinson was a limited little pen-pusher who didn’t know how to cover things up properly, Robinson’s strategies were too transparent. Richard Crossman, being a senior officer in the security services knew how to cover up the grossest abuses of the state without being caught, which will have been why Harold Wilson put him in charge of the NHS in 1968 AND gave Crossman responsibility for merging the Ministries of Health and Social Services to form the new mega-dept, the DHSS, which gobbled up money and was the most powerful Gov’t dept. As well as the one that facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring and could not control criminal Top Docs, but was highly effective at controlling the Lower Orders and providing well-paid jobs for middle class people who Did It For The Poor.

Eric Hobsbawm and Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law lived in Hampstead/Primrose Hill. As of course did Eric’s pal Michael Foot. Harold Wilson was resident in the area, so was Hugh Gaitskill and many more of those who loved the NHS because Gwynne and JOF Did It For The Poor.

When the Council for the Professions Supplementary to Medicine was formed in 1961, JOF was one of the members. In 1967 JOF became Secretary of the Central Committee on Postgraduate Medical Education and in 1970, when the Council for Postgraduate Medical Education was formed, he became the first Secretary.

JOF’s major achievement though must surely have been keeping the Tories in power after the Profumo Affair. JOF was there in the Ministry of Health with Enoch Powell and George Godber, concealing the Himalayas of crap, which included leading Tories shagging rent boys and hanging out with the Krays.

The Krays were running the East End and the rent boy/prostitution rackets when Dafydd and Gwynne’s partner gang based at the London Hospital were facilitating organised abuse. Elwyn Jones – later Lord Elwyn-Jones and Lord Chancellor under Wilson and Callaghan – was the bent lawyer from West Wales who doubled up as the MP for an East End constituency for years and was one of the Gang’s key legal links between Wales and the East End. See previous posts for info on Elwyn, his Artist wife Pearl aka Polly Binder who Loved The People Of the East End and their son Dan, social worker and Artist, who also Loves The East End.

Dafydd Hated the English and Helped Welsh People.

Yma O Hyd!

Harold Macmillan resigned on 18 Oct 1963 and Sir Alec Douglas-Home succeeded as Leader and as PM on 19 Oct 1963, as a result of what was alleged to have been an old Etonian stitch-up with Lilibet’s blessing. I mentioned in ‘Cymro 007’ that Sir Alec’s son and heir David married Jane Williams-Wynne, a member of the Williams-Wynne family who have been very influential in north Wales for many years. ‘Cymru 007’ discussed the MPs who had represented the various constituencies in which the North Wales Hospital was located, one of whom was Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn, the Tory MP for Denbighshire, 1841-85.

JOF died in early 1978. When JOF pegged out, Mr Thrope knew that he was sooner or later going to be standing trial for a very serious offence. Mr Thrope was subsequently committed for trial at the Old Bailey at Minehead Magistrates’ Court later in 1978. Mr Thrope whose family were friend with the Lloyd George’s and who had grown up with the Lloyd George children as playmates.

 

But it is as the pioneer of British paediatric neurology that Paul Sandifer will be most vividly and affectionately remembered. Although a few neurologists in this country had at an earlier date evinced some special interest in the nervous disorders occurring in children—notably F. E. Batten, James Taylor and W. G. Wyllie— there were no recognised and established paediatric neurologists in the North American meaning of the term. When in 1953 the Board of the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, created a department of neurology, Paul Sandifer was the obvious choice. This was his greatest hour in the professional sense, for he threw himself into this new sphere of activity with characteristic enthusiasm. His previous training under Moncrieff proved invaluable, for he had a conspicuous ability to understand the sick child and command its trust and affection.

Note: ‘Its’ trust and affection..’ ‘Command’ as well, rather than ‘gain’ or ‘engender’. This lot are a real bundle of fun aren’t they.

His many hours of hospital service, particularly at Great Ormond Street, involved an exhaustive but gentle study of his patients,

Commanding the trust and affection of these inanimate objects as he went

followed by the writing of most conscientious and detailed reports or correspondence. Patients and staff were intrigued by his elegance and youthful charm.

Do we actually know this? In one interview with the ‘North Wales Weekly News’, Dafydd was described as being ‘attractive to women’. I sat in a psych ward in Ysbyty Gwynedd while two (male) psych Angels read that interview and screamed with laughter, pointed at the accompanying photo of Dafydd in the paper and said ‘Yes they’ve captured the dandruff, he’s covered in it as usual’.

At the time I just thought ‘God what an insult from the ‘North Wales Weekly News’ in view of the sheer number of complaints that female patients have made about Dafydd and as for the rumours swirling around north Wales re his appalling conduct towards staff, ex-wives, mistresses…’. There really was no way that the journos hadn’t heard about Dafydd.

Once more I have been rather slow. That ‘profile’ of Dafydd appeared in the ‘North Wales Weekly News’ while I was an inpatient in Ysbyty Gwynedd, my alleged symptoms being my ‘delusions’ about Dafydd having behaved indecently towards me and many other female patients.

Would Jeff Crowther and John Thomas, the two Angels who just roared with laughter at that ‘profile’ of Dafydd and took the piss out of the Sex God’s dandruff, green teeth etc and who KNEW that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients like to tell all that they know? Including who arranged that interview and article when the dangerous nutter who had made ‘allegations’ about Dafydd and who I understand was also working as a prostitute (how I had time to do that in addition to committing my many other crimes I do not know) was sitting in Ysbyty Gwynedd being told that her complaints re Dafydd would not even be documented because they were ‘delusional’?

Previous posts have mentioned that my NHS files contained personal notes from journos working on the local papers in north Wales to Dafydd about me and about letters that I wrote to newspapers and even clippings of newspaper reports featuring me after the Gang had me framed in Court. My file also contained newspaper clippings of reviews of art exhibitions held by Patient F and even academic articles that I published more recently about the mental health services.

Then there was Elizabeth Carter, a local journo from north Wales, who was admitted to the Hergest Unit with depression after suffering from cancer. Elizabeth was in hospital on one of the occasions when I was, she certainly received much better ‘care’ than anyone else; some two weeks later, an article appeared in the local paper, written by Elizabeth, re Ah the doctors they were wonderful. If they had been, Elizabeth would have done a fine job by publicising it, but when Elizabeth wrote that article, the ‘service’ really had begun to implode, complaints were mounting up, the better staff were leaving, there had been well-publicised deaths etc. Elizabeth’s article appeared as the investigations into the possible paedophile ring were underway. See previous posts.

 

His arresting manner of teaching, at times so informal in terminology as to be startling, delighted his students.

Er, I think that I can read between the lines here. Medical students always enjoy it when academic Top Docs behave as they shouldn’t, whether it is showing them photos of female patients in the bath as Dafydd’s mate Prof Linford Rees used to (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’), or saying ‘cock’ instead of ‘penis’ as I suspect that Paul Sandifer did. One of our lecturers when I was doing that MSc at Hammersmith turned up to the lecture so drunk that he couldn’t actually give the lecture, he tried to but he was so pissed that he kept getting confused. His flies were undone as well. It was interesting but even we took the view ‘We have a lot to get through on this course and we need to know this subject’. There were  quite a few of us who were self-funding and had parted with much dosh to hear the drunken one. He had come over as a guest lecturer from UCL…

Such an introduction to the manifold and obscure nervous disorders of childhood made him a pioneer within a terra parve cognita.

For years he was intrigued by the diverse and progressive cerebral syndromes of infancy and early childhood, including, for example, subacute sclerosing encephalitis. Perhaps his principal interest lay in an attempt to unravel the mystique of such untidy syndromes as the ‘floppy’ infant and the ‘spastic’ child.

I used to babysit a ‘floppy’ child after I graduated from UCNW, just before I went to Hammersmith. I got to know his mum and dad well. His mum had been treated badly when in labour at St David’s Hospital, Bangor and subsequent complaints from her and her husband were ignored. They kept telling the Top Docs that they thought that something was seriously wrong with their son. They were told that he was just a ‘floppy’ baby. When he was three, it was admitted by the Top Docs that he had serious brain damage, was intellectually intact but had no muscle control over any part of his body. He had been delivered by the same obstetrician who had either seriously damaged or killed the baby of a local policeman during the delivery.

At that point the obstetrician left the employ of Gwynedd Health Authority and bagged a senior job in Australia. The policeman and his wife began legal action against Gwynedd Health Authority. The parents of the little boy for whom I babysat attempted to do so themselves but they were refused access to the medical records and told that there was no evidence that the fuss that Christopher’s mum and her husband had made about the management of the birth had any basis.

By that time, I had made friends with a secretary at St David’s Hospital. She told me that the place was lethal, there had been stillbirth after stillbirth – including her own baby – and that there was one particular senior midwife who was allocated to speak to parents who’s baby had been injured or died on the basis that she was just so intimidating that most distraught parents would not continue with the complaint after encountering her.

My post ‘The BMA and It’s Ethics’ provides further details of the Everyday Story Of St David’s Folk eg. the unlawful abduction of newborn babies from vulnerable women – not even just young unmarried women either -as a result of collusion between abusive family members and Top Docs, including Dafydd and the hostile ‘care’ given to women who experienced miscarriages after they stood accused of – on the basis of no evidence at all – carrying out abortions on themselves.

Meanwhile, the Top Docs across the whole of north Wales had all made an agreement to refuse all women NHS abortions whatever their circumstances, which almost certainly led to some women procuring their own abortions and therefore staff suspected any woman who was miscarrying. Of course though any woman could be referred, on demand, to the ‘private clinic’ in Chester for an abortion, as long as they paid. All politicians knew about it, as did Wimmin’s Aid. No-one said a word. See previous posts, including ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’.

Is there anyone more hypocritical than the Top Doctors and Angels? Putting women who are miscarrying a much wanted child through THAT because they are running an illegal abortion racket?

Ieuan stood unsuccessfully as the Plaid candidate for Denbigh, but had better luck in 1987 when he was elected as the Plaid MP for Ynys Mon. Ieaun later became the AM for Ynys Mon as well and then Deputy FM! See previous posts.

As for Christopher, the ‘floppy baby’ whom I used to babysit in 1986, he’ll be in his mid-30s by now. His surname was Owen. I lost touch with his parents because my friend Anne was killed by the Gang during the months that I was babysitting Christopher and I stopped babysitting him a few weeks after that. I have since been told that the Top Docs told Christopher’s parents that I was A Danger To Their Children (Christopher had a sister, Helen). It’s one way of dealing with  someone who constantly found evidence of serious misconduct and crime on the part of D.G.E. Wood, Dafydd and their mates.

Sandifer firmly held that the diplegias of childhood were essentially problems of paediatric neurology. Unfortunately he contributed little to contemporary literature; his premature death left unfinished his projected monograph* on paediatric neurology, so that his many original ideas have perforce been transmitted merely by the recollection of his clinical lectures and demonstrations.

Well fancy that! The Founder of Paediatric Neurology in Britain and the man who established the Dept of Neurology at Great Ormond Street didn’t leave a trace of the written word behind him. The font of knowledge is entirely the matter of myth years after the great man’s demise.

His interests outside medicine ranged from travel in out of the way regions, the ballet, musical appreciation and haute cuisine, to indoor gardening and fast cars.

In 1939 he married Dr Sheila Anderson, daughter of Herbert Anderson, J.P.; she was anaesthetist to Great Ormond Street. They had no children.

This tribute to the Founder Of  Paediatric Neurology who never managed to put pen to paper was written by Richard Trail, who wrote a lot of hagiographies of Top Docs who had close connections to criminals and abusers for the Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online. Readers may have noticed that a number of the Top Docs’ names dropped by Trail in the above tribute have appeared in previous posts, including that of another Founder Of British Paediatrics and of the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, Alan Moncrieff. They were members of the group of Top Docs who trained and/or worked with Oliver Brooke et al who then ran the international trafficking ring during the 1970s, 80s and 90s. They were part of a huge network of Top Docs who had facilitated abuse in the heart of the ‘world leading’ London hospitals, including GOSH. That is how Jimmy Savile was able to drop in at will and how ‘no-one knew’.

With Audrey Callaghan as Chair of GOSH and Sunny Jim helping with the fundraising (see previous posts) what ever could go wrong?

Lest readers try and comfort themselves with the idea that Moncrieff and co were all a long time ago and GOSH will have upped their standards since those days, in 1987 I met a girl on a train who was a clinical psychologist at GOSH. She was a UCNW graduate, had trained as a clin psy at Bangor, knew about Dafydd, had been sexually harassed by him and told me that it was horrific at Denbigh, ‘everyone just gets out of there as soon as they can’. She was not Dafydd, but she knew about him, she was working in the World Leading GOSH, was a witness to organised abuse and serious crime in north Wales and was saying nothing. It was a reference from Dafydd’s Gang that bagged her the job at GOSH. She was the same age as me and will still be working in child psychology, probably holding a Chair or a very senior position in management/governance by now.

Paul Sandifer studied law for a brief period before deciding to change to medicine. Sandifer syndrome was named in his honour by his former student, Marcel Kinsbourne. Marcel Kinsbourne (born 1931), who will no doubt have happy memories of Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist’s pal saying ‘cock’ in lectures, is an Austrian-born paediatric neurologist and cognitive neuroscientist who was an early pioneer in the study of brain lateralization. Kinsbourne obtained his M.D. and D.M. degrees at Oxford University, where he served on the Psychology Faculty as of 1964 before relocating to the US in 1967. Kinsbourne has held Chairs in both Neurology and Psychology at Duke University and the University of Toronto and headed the Behavioural Neurology Research Division at the Shriver Center in Boston, Massachusetts. Kinsbourne also served as President of the International Neuropsychological Society and the Society for Philosophy and Psychology.

Kinsbourne has published around 400 articles in multiple areas of cognitive neuroscience, including brain-behaviour relations; contralateral brain organization; consciousness; imitation; laterality among normal and abnormal populations; memory and amnestic disorders; unilateral neglect; attention and ADHD; autism; learning disabilities; intellectual disability and dyslexia.

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

 

It was in 1936 that Arthur Tudor Edwards was appointed as first Director of the Department of Thoracic Surgery at the London Hospital, which meant him giving up general surgery at the Westminster Hospital. Edwards remained a consulting surgeon to King Edward VII’s Sanatorium at Midhurst and to Queen Alexandra’s Hospital, Millbank. Edwards was surgeon under the Ministry of Pensions to Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehampton. He also oversaw the London County Council’s Thoracic Clinic at St Mary Abbott’s Hospital, Kensington.

The London County Council had a long and glorious history of facilitating organised abuse and of allowing Top Docs to do whatever they wanted, no matter how many patients were killed. The London County Council did make a token effort to rein in Dr William Sargant in the 1950s, but although Sargant was a lethal embarrassment – Tommy’s equivalent of Dafydd who has now been written out of medical history re the standard texts – the LCC were so ineffective that Dr Death was working as William Sargant’s research registrar in the 1960s, prior to Dr Death entering the Commons. See post ‘Dr Death’. The whole medical world knew that the hated Dr Death had been as culpable re those poor sods who died in the ‘care’ of William Sargant, but no, in Dr Death’s long and illustrious career in politics, no-one has ever done a ‘Now then…’ on Dr Death and mentioned the matter of those horrific experiments conducted on William Sargant’s ward at Tommy’s which killed so many. The wall of ‘Ah the doctors they were wonderful’ remains in place.

See the source image

Between 1938 and 1939, Tudor Edwards suffered two severe illnesses, following which he continued as a civilian consultant with the RAF, adviser for thoracic casualties to the Ministry of Health and civilian adviser to the War Office throughout WW II. He structured the response facilities for thoracic casualties under the Emergency Medical Service. Instituting a School of Thoracic Surgeons in Great Britain, Edwards became a leading mentor. During the years of war he provided intensive courses of instruction for service thoracic units, visiting these units all over the country.

Despite serving numerous hospitals, the Brompton was Edwards’s most desirable place to operate. He was assisted at the Brompton by Price Thomas and anaesthetist Ivan Magill. The number of heart and lung operations at the Brompton rose from 49 in 1908 to 252 in 1928 and 1054 in 1938.

Descriptions of Tudor Edwards’s work load and his attitude to his colleagues suggest that Edwards played fast and loose in the operating theatre, so fast and loose that most would describe him as seriously reckless. No-one stopped him, after all he was Tudor Edwards.

On the international platform in his 40s, Edwards became an honorary fellow of the American Society of Thoracic Surgeons and President of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons in Great Britain. In the ultimate years of his life, Edwards was nominated the first President of the new Association for the Study of Diseases of the Chest and contributed a survey of 1000 operations for bronchial carcinoma to the first number of the journal Thorax.

Edwards married Evelyn Imelda Chichester Hoskin, daughter of Theophilus Hoskin, MRCS, of London and Cornwall on 13 April 1920. They were not blessed with children.

A ‘shy and private person, sometimes seen as cold and arrogant’, Edwards was feared amongst juniors. Russell Brock had declared himself to be “much junior to him so could not necessarily expect a warm friendliness but it was rare to see him warm and friendly although he could be so”.

Here’s Tudor Evans, all bashful:

Arthur Tudor Edwards.jpg

On 25 August 1946, Edwards was spending his holiday in St Enodoc, Cornwall. Known to be recurrently unwell, his sudden death was still felt as a surprise. Edwards died at 56 years old, which isn’t much of a testament to his own profession. Tudor Edwards was buried at St Enodoc’s Church. Lord Horder delivered an obituary oration at a memorial service in London.

Lord Horder was one of the Great Men Of Medicine who was around before the NHS and then for a long time after its establishment. Some weeks ago I found an short publication written by Lord Horder in a second hand bookshop. I did not gain the impression that Lord Horder Did It For The Poor, indeed I don’t think that Lord Horder liked the poor very much. See previous posts.

Thomas Jeeves Horder, 1st Baron Horder, was born on 7 January 1871. He was educated privately and at the University of London and Bart’s. Horder studied at Bart’s just a few years after Lord Snowdon’s granddad Sir Robert Armstrong-Jones studied there.

Horder began his career at Bart’s and, when still quite young, successfully made a difficult diagnosis on King Edward VII which made his reputation. His patients included every British monarch from Edward VII to Elizabeth II (except Edward VIII). They also included two PMs, Ramsay MacDonald and Bonar Law, and Labour Leader Hugh Gaitskell.

Lord Horder was involved in many official committees including advising the Ministry of Food during WW II, so he worked with Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate, Lord Charles Hill aka the Radio Doctor. See previous posts. After the war Horder opposed many of Nye’s plans for the NHS and may have helped modify some of those less palatable to the Top Docs.

Horder held the positions of Deputy Lieutenant County of Hampshire; Extra Physician to the Queen (formerly Extra Physician to King George VI); and Consulting Physician to St Bartholomew’s Hospital (1912–1936). Horder worked at Bart’s with Lady Juliet Bingley’s father, the surgeon Reginald Vick. Knighted in 1918, Horder was created a Baronet in 1923. He was raised to the peerage as Baron Horder, of Ashford in the County of Southampton on 23 January 1933

Horder served as President of the British Eugenics Society  1935-49 and as President of the Cremation Society of Great Britain from 1940 to his death in 1955.

Lord Horder was President of The Peckham Experiment in 1949.

In 1902 Horder married Geraldine Rose Doggett (1872-1954), of Newnham Manor, Hertfordshire, whose maternal grandfather was James Smith Rose of Arley House, Bristol who in 1873 was the Mayor of Totnes. Their son was the publisher Mervyn Horder (died 1997). Their daughter Joy Horder was mother to British architect Edward Cullinan and married to a chief physician at Bart’s.

Lord Horder lived for many years at near Petersfield, Hampshire – Lord Denning country (see previous posts) – where he died on 13 August 1955.

 

Tudor Edwards’s wife died five years later on 13 May 1951 – so she didn’t last long either – and left £5,000 to the Royal College for the promotion of surgical science.

Numerous students and trainees trained under Edwards. Even if they all loathed both Tudor Edwards and Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist, they’ll have stuck together like glue in the face of complaint. Gwynne will not have been the only one who learnt to lobotomise people who either complained or objected to being coerced into sex work. Mr Harvard Heart Surgeon Dwight Harken was alive until 1993 and the Top Docs would have had his reputation in mind as well in the event of questions raised about Gwynne. As one of my friends suggested back in the late 1980s, as the Gang resorted to ever-increasing desperate measures to silence me, it’ll be a case of Dafydd (Gwynne having died by then) saying ‘If I go down I’ll take you all down with me’. It works every time because the obvious question in the face of a Gwynne or a Dafydd is ‘What were the rest of you doing watching this and saying nothing?’

It’s why no Top Docs want to work in north Wales, why no Top Docs wanted to take on a patient of Gwynne’s or Dafydd’s or now, so I hear, Tony Francis’s. Gwynne, Dafydd and Tony were all at one point the New Nice Young Doctor.

Everyone wants to be able to say ‘I didn’t see anything, I didn’t hear anything, I don’t know anything’. This is how No-One Knew about the industrial production of child sex workers in north Wales over decades and victims of the Gang kept in a dungeon at Denbigh, while witnesses disappeared or were found dead.

Tudor Edwards was known as the “operator of supreme skill and beautiful technique”.

Another one of Tudor Edwards’s trainees, Sir (from 1954) and then Lord (from 1965) Russell Brock will have been invaluable re protecting Gwynne. Russell Claude Brock, Baron Brock (24 October 1903-3 September 1980) was one of the pioneers of modern open-heart surgery. He was born in London, 1903, the son of Herbert Brock, a master photographer and his wife, Elvina (née Carman). Russell Brock was the fourth of eight children. He was educated at Haselrigge Road School,  Clapham and then at Christ’s Hospital, Horsham, where he later became an Almoner (governor). Russell Brock entered  Guy’s Hospital Medical School, qualified in 1927 and was appointed demonstrator at Guy’s after qualifying. Brock was awarded a Rockefeller travelling fellowship and worked in the Surgical Department of Evarts Graham at St Louis, Missouri, 1929-30. There he developed an interest in thoracic surgery. Brock returned to Guy’s as surgical registrar and tutor in 1932 and was appointed research fellow of the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland.

Brock’s appointments included consultant thoracic surgeon to the London County Council, 1935–46; surgeon to the Ministry of Pensions at Roehampton Hospital, 1936–45; surgeon to Guy’s and the Brompton hospitals, 1936-1968. During WW II, Brock was also thoracic surgeon and regional adviser in thoracic surgery to the Emergency Medical Service in the Guy’s region.

Robert Owen, the Prof of Surgery at Liverpool University who was appointed by the Welsh Office in 1988 to co-ordinate the cover-up of Dafydd and the Gang’s criminality in the wake of my complaint (see post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’), was a farmer’s son from the Llyn Peninsula who trained at Guy’s. As a boy Robert Owen had wanted to become a vet but because he was one of the cleverer boys at Pwhelli Grammar School, a local Top Doc who had a mate at Guy’s Hospital told Owen that he should study medicine and of course go to Guy’s. Thus a surgeon and facilitator of the paedophile/trafficking ring was born. See eg. ‘In Memoriam – Professor Robert Owen’. Of course many careers are built on foundations this haphazard, it is inevitable with people choosing careers when they are so young, but it was the root of a huge problem in a region and in a profession which was run by what was organised crime even in those days.

Robert Owen was a fully paid up member of the Gang but with much more credibility than Dafydd, yet I suspect that if Robert Owen had ever wanted to get off the merry-go-round, it would have been very difficult. Many of his mates from school and the area were involved with the same Gang and their network. Owen will have known people like Lord Mervyn Davies and Robyn Lewis and other local boys made pompous as discussed in previous posts and once he arrived at Guy’s, Owen was surrounded by the network of grandiose Top Docs with connections to the Royal Family. There are people who can turn their backs on it all when they are sufficiently sickened, but it is surprising how few they are. The pressure to remain in a world of Nice Young Doctors is immense.

Uncle Harry was a Prof at Guy’s; Sister Hutt’s dad the pathologist Michael Hutt held a Chair at Tommy’s. See previous posts. Guys and Tommy’s merged in 1982 to form the United Medical and Dental Schools. The merger took place while Uncle Harry and Sister Hutt’s father were still in post.

The end of WW II provided opportunities for surgeons with war experience to turn their attention to unsolved civilian problems. The surgeons who made their names thus included another Middlesex surgeon who was a member of the Gwynne Protection Society, Thomas Holmes Sellors (1902–1987). Holmes Sellors was a contemporary of Russell Brock and US cardiac surgeons Horace Smithy (1914–1948) of Charlotte, Dr Elliott Cutler of the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital , Charles Bailey (1910–1993) at the Hahnemann Hospital, Philadelphia and Dwight Harken

It is maintained that this group of surgeons all started work independently of each other, within a few months and together created ‘an entirely new therapeutic tradition’.

See the source image

Many thousands of ‘blind’ valve operations pioneered by this group of surgeons were performed until the introduction of the heart bypass made direct surgery on valves possible.

Inspired by exchange visits between himself and Dr Alfred Blalock of Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, Russell Brock also introduced new developments, notably hypothermia and the heart-lung machine.

My post ‘Interesting Facts’ discussed the World Leading Cardiac Surgeons at Hammersmith Hospital/Royal Postgraduate Medical School who during the post-WW II years made many Amazing Discoveries, pioneered a New Operation which needed Special Equipment, invented the machines that went ping to perform the New Operation and flogged the machines across the world after a much-publicised trip to the USSR during the Cold War to demonstrate British medical miracles to the Ruskies. The leading light of this crew was Prof Hugh Bentall who was only given a Chair at Hammersmith after his colleague was found dead in the hospital in worrying circumstances and Bentall had made a substantial financial donation to RPMS. Bentall could afford that, he was a wealthy man, from the family that owned Bentall’s, the posh department store in Kingston-upon-Thames. Bentall virtually ran Kingston-upon-Tames, as well as Hammersmith Hospital.

‘Interesting Facts’ discussed data that I accessed indicating that Bentall and co lied about the success of their New Technique and ignored patient deaths. Other highlights of Hugh Bentall was his secretary, who doubled up as his mistress, being given a place on an anatomy degree, then a place to complete a PhD, then a lecturing job in anatomy.

See the source image

There was much bad feeling towards Hugh Bentall at Hammersmith.

Hugh’s son Richard is a clinical psychologist who ‘trained’ with Dafydd and the Gang at UCNW in the early 1980s and has held Chairs at Bangor, Manchester, Liverpool and I think is now at Sheffield… See previous posts.

Richard Bentall Knew About Gwynne and he knows that I knew! Happy days Richard!

Richard Bentall was a Prof of Psychology at Bangor University in 2008 when the Gwerin and Richard’s colleagues in the School of Psychology were doing all that they could to force Merfyn Jones out of his job as VC of Bangor University. I was forwarded some very interesting e mails written by Richard, which confirmed that he knew that psych patients in north Wales were being abused by his colleagues and that he and his colleagues were lying about the success of their Interventions In Mental Illness. Richard was appearing on TV at the time, being touted about as a Radical Psychologist who opposed the old farts, their abuses, machines that go ping etc…

I can’t remember the name of your dad’s mistress Richard, but I do remember her very well. A stout lady with a plummy voice, a 1950s hair style and much red lipstick, who tried to pass herself off as a paediatric surgeon. That’s how I found out that she was your dad’s mistress: the person who also met her mentioned to a Top Doc at Hammersmith that presumably she was part of the surgery team, only to be met with howls of laughter and the information that ‘the old tart’ was a secretary who became Bentall’s mistress and now rolled up to medical school dinners talking about ‘we in surgery’. She also wrote an angry letter to a colleague with whom she had clashed, reminding him that she was a ‘licensed lecturer in anatomy’. The recipient of the letter rolled around laughing and noted that ‘Well none of the rest of us are one of them…’

I detailed some of the excesses that I witnessed at Hammersmith in letters to a number of people in north Wales who were posing as my friends and supporters. Imagine my surprise when my lawyers obtained my medical records and there were copies of the letters in there, having been passed on to Top Docs in north Wales, who had passed them onto their advisers in the BMA, the MDU, the Welsh Office and numerous lawyers. The letters also contained details of attempted sex attacks on me and my friends, violent assaults on Brown and others, abuse and neglect of patients…

We didn’t know!

Oh yes you did and you knew even more than I knew that you knew. You knew that I was documenting the serious criminality of a vast network of Top Docs in the highest places and scores of lawyers and even High Court judges read those letters. I won’t worry about the deceit and betrayal here, the important matter is that so many people KNEW and had possession of copies of those letters during the North Wales Police investigation into the alleged VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire AND during the Waterhouse Inquiry…

This was Lord High Chancellor during the Waterhouse Inquiry:

Russell Brock was ‘an outstanding diagnostician, a conscientious teacher and meticulous in the care of his patients. He was not an easy man to know well. He was strict in handling his juniors but meticulously fair and very supportive of those who gained his confidence. Likewise he could not tolerate slackness in those who worked with him and suffered fools badly. He was very much an individualist, found his own solutions to problems and was not always good at accepting the solutions of others’. 

Lord Russell just didn’t ever mention the organised abuse, criminality and research fraud.

See the source image

John Kirklin said that when he (Kirklin) had just performed his first operation at the Mayo Clinic using the Mayo-Gibbon oxygenator and was about to do his second, Brock phoned, asking to come and watch. Knowing that Brock was supposed to be a difficult man with a big reputation, Brock was offered the chance to scrub up and stand in the theatre but he said, “No, no, no. I don’t want to bother you”. Brock sat and watched inconspicuously in the gallery. Perhaps this tells us that Brock felt that he had a mission to serve patients, did not like having precious time wasted but came humbly to learn when he sensed a master at work.

It is far more likely that it is just another example of the everyday story of Top Doctor folk who know that their colleagues are as equally, if not more, unscrupulous than they are and an essential part of life is to trot along to watch each other in action, while trying to work out what the latest scam is. The scams are openly gossiped about among Top Docs but never, ever outside those circles, even when patients are at risk. I once commented on this insanity at St George’s and someone snapped ‘God you are naïve, it’s all part of the game’. As was the trafficking ring facilitated by Prof Chamberlain, he who was the life and soul of the party at graduation who entertained the newly qualified Top Docs’ parents with his anecdotes of life on the high seas when Chamberlain had been a ship’s surgeon, with his Doc Martens ‘from Prof’s son’s shop, Red Or Dead!’ and his custom-made tankard with ‘Bodger’ emblazoned on it, ‘Prof’s Welsh and that was his rugby nickname!’. The graduates’ parents would have gone apeshit if they had known some of what was happening at St George’s.

The Lady Doctor enjoying refreshment is Bodger’s pal (and, I rather got the impression, Dafydd’s pal as well) Wendy Savage, Socialist Feminist and fellow traveller of Uncle Harry.

Bodger and the crew will of course have known the surgeons who are the main subject of this post; surgeons consider themselves superior to obstetricians and gynaecologists, but obs and gynae involves surgery and the two groups know each other.

Russell Brock died in Guy’s Hospital on 3 September 1980.

Among other things, Russell Brock was the Assistant Editor and later the Editor of Guy’s Hospital Reports 1939-1960. He served on the Council of the Royal College of Surgeons, 1949–67, as Vice-President 1956-58 and President 1963-66 and as Director of the Royal College of Surgeons’ Department of Surgical Sciences, which was established during his Presidency.

Lord Russell Brock was also:

President: Thoracic Society of Great Britain and Ireland in 1952; Society of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland in 1958; Medical Society of London in 1958.

Elected fellow: Thoracic Society of Great Britain and Ireland; Royal College of Physicians of London in 1965. ROSENHEIM??

Elected Honorary fellow: American College of Surgeons, 1949; the Brazilian College, 1952; the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, 1958; the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, 1965; the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada; and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, 1966.

Russell Brock will have known about the wrongdoing and research fraud on the part of Professor Hugh Bentall and his mates at Hammersmith Hospital and he’ll have known about the dreadful track record of the notorious surgeons in north Wales. He will have known about the organised abuse. Brock just didn’t think that it mattered that much and anyway with folk like Lord Max Rosenheim, Sir William Gilliatt et al in the midst of it, no-one could afford to say a word.

Lord Brock was in receipt of numerous academic prizes etc, including:

Awards: Julius Mickle prize of London University (1952), Fothergillian Gold Medal of the Medical Society of London (1953) Cameron prize of the University of Edinburgh, Gold Medal of Society of Apothecaries (1955), Gold Medal of West London Medical and Chirurgical Society (1955), International Gairdner award, 1960-1, Lister medallist and orator, 1967.

Honorary degrees from universities: Hamburg (1962), Leeds (1965), Cambridge (1968), Guelph and Munich (1972).

We are told that outside Brock’s professional work ‘he had considerable knowledge of old furniture and prints and history, especially local and medical history’. There is myth here, Brock simply did not have enough hours in the day to have done all of this to an Expert level. A certain variety of Top Doc does like to believe that they are just wonderful at everything, even an occasional hobby. The reality is that Top Docs who do make a mark in fields such as surgery usually have to spend so much time being surgeons that they don’t have the time to become adept at anything else.

The only way that Brock may have had time to follow other pursuits was if he had been the sort of Gentleman Surgeon that Sir Charles Evans was. Evans was far more interested in mountaineering than in surgery and he was known to have spent more time in the Himalayas than in theatre on Merseyside, for which he was being paid handsomely. Sir Charles went unchallenged because none of them ever were challenged, but he was eventually stopped from performing neurosurgery because he had lost such a degree of skill from lack of practice. Patients will have been maimed and killed before Evans was relegated to general surgery only. By the mid-1950s, Evans’s multiple sclerosis had advanced such that he couldn’t stand for the lengths of time needed to operate, so someone appointed him Principal of UCNW and he took up the appointment in 1958. There was already wrongdoing and organised abuse at UCNW. Sir Charles was quite used to such things, from his days as a medical student and junior doc his close friends such as Ann McCandless were docs who were at best ignoring, or at worst facilitating, abuse. See post ‘Meet The Gwerin!.

See the source image

When Sir Charles was appointed Principal of UCNW, Lloyd Tyrell-Kenyon, the 5th Baron Kenyon, had been in place as the President of UCNW since 1947. Lord Kenyon remained as President until 1982, when the Gwerin overthrew him. The corrupt judge and member of the Gang Sir William Mars-Jones (see previous posts eg. ‘Cymru 007’) replaced Lord Kenyon as President. Lord Kenyon had served the Gang very well even if he was posh and English. He had friends in all the right places and was, among other things, a Director of Lloyds Bank, a member of the North Wales Police Authority, the most senior Freemason in north Wales, Chairman of Clwyd Health Authority, a JP and much more besides. Lord Kenyon also had interests in fine art and prints. The sort of things that Lord Brock was alleged to be keen on when he wasn’t saving lives by performing pioneering surgery. See eg. ‘A Bit More Paleontology’.

Lord Kenyon’s son Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon, by the late 1970s, was known to be sexually abusing a boy in the care of the Social Services. Their ‘relationship’ was even recorded on the boy’s Social Services file. The matter was resolved when, after spending the night with the boy, Thomas reported him for theft and had him arrested. Among the stolen items were Polaroid porn pics of the boy with Thomas. The North Wales Police destroyed the pics on the grounds that they were indecent and the boy was sent to a detention centre. Thomas faced no charges although he was much older than the boy and the boy was underage. See previous posts. Thomas died from HIV/AIDS in the early months of 1993; Lord Kenyon died not long after Thomas, on 16 May 1993.

Patient F and I were arrested and charged shortly after Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon died, after Jackie Brandt, a Gwynedd social worker, made a statement to the Bangor police stating that I had screamed and yelled abuse at her in Safeways in Bangor, such that she believed a violent assault from me was imminent. As far as I can work out, Brandt made her statement to the police just days after Thomas died, but no-one told us or interviewed/arrested us for some two/three weeks after Brandt made the statement. Our trial wasn’t until later in the summer of 1993, at Bangor Magistrates’ Court. In the witness box, Brandt admitted that she had lied to the police, that I hadn’t even spoken to her and then she began crying. I was found guilty of causing her ‘alarm and distress’ for ‘staring’ at her and I had to part with £60. F was found not guilty.

Brandt had previously unlawfully detained me in Ysbyty Gwynedd, where Dafydd had turned up and tried to Talk Sex with me, refused to answer any questions about her role in that unlawful detention and then perjured herself in two different cases in the High Court in attempts to have me imprisoned. See post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’. At no point was there ever an investigation into Brandt’s repeated perjury. She was eventually asked a few questions by the Mental Health Act Commission re my unlawful detention in the autumn of 1986. She lied in her replies, it was demonstrated that she had lied, yet the matter was dropped. I later got to know another person who had been unlawfully detained by Brandt not long after me. This young woman’s mum and dad refused to let the matter drop and Brandt was eventually summoned to answer questions. I was told ‘it was lie after lie after lie’. Business as usual then.

My conviction at Bangor Magistrates’ Court was forever after used as evidence of the danger that I presented to Brandt’s life and limb and was mentioned constantly in statements etc when other members of the Gang made fallacious allegations against me.

 

Sir Charles Evans remained as Principal of UCNW until 1984. The institution was a vehicle for the trafficking ring run by Evans’s pals and when Gwynne could no longer be tolerated at even the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, Gwynne parked his bum in the Student Health Centre at UCNW and business continued from there. After Sir Charles reached the top of Everest in 1953 with Edmund Hilary et al, he was untouchable, as were the gang of sex offenders who sheltered under Evans – although they hated him – at UCNW. See post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’. The Gang should have loved Sir Charles, as with Lord Kenyon there could have been some rather difficult questions asked about UCNW if those two had not held such senior posts.

The Everest team held reunions, sometimes in the presence of admirers:

Team Leader Lord John Hunt worked for the security services and was the officer in charge of Sandhurst for many years (see previous posts). No wonder Gwynne and Dafydd were never ever held to account no matter how great the catastrophe.

 

A lesser known aspect of Lord Brock’s career was his ‘dedication to the complementary interests of private medicine and the NHS, for he served on the governing body of Private Patients Plan and was Chairman (1967–77) before becoming its President’. This hobby of Lord Brock’s will not have been a well-kept secret by chance. Although the Top Docs were overwhelmingly opposed to the NHS in the 1940s which is why Nye had to give them all so much dosh and promise to let them do whatever they wanted without ever explaining themselves to anyone but The Profession in order to get them to agree to work in the NHS, by the time that Lord Brock of Heroes Of Heart Surgery was Chairman of Private Patients Plan, the Top Docs were doing very well indeed out of the NHS and successfully deflected questions about crime and patient deaths by yelling along with Uncle Harry ‘We’re doing it for the poor’. Had Lord Brock’s side line been widely known, the image would have been tarnished.

Lord Brock was Chairman of PPP while Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson was Minister of Health and then when King of the Westminster Swingers Richard Crossman was Secretary of State for the DHSS, ensured that Dafydd and Gwynne were bombproof and did all that he could to ensure that the DHSS was as much a vehicle for the Westminster Paedophile Ring as UCNW was. Crossman loathed the Top Docs but couldn’t touch them; in return they held him and Harold Wilson over a barrel at every opportunity and repaid Crossman’s 100% protection of the Westminster Paedophile Ring as well as of Gwynne and Dafydd – which included rigging a Public Inquiry into the serious abuse of patients at Ely Hospital and setting a litigation trap for the Church of Scientology, who’s members had discovered the enormity of Gwynne and Dafydd’s criminality, as discussed in previous posts – by the BMA organising a strike immediately before the June 1970 General Election and appearing on TV supporting the Tories. See previous posts.

It was the BMA wot won it!

They did honestly, look it all up if you don’t believe me…

Furthermore, Ted Heath’s bestest friend and personal Top Doc Sir Brian Warren remained opposed to the NHS throughout his entire career. Like his one-time wife Nice Lady Doctor Dame Josephine Barnes, Brian Warren was facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Dame Josephile was however happy to facilitate organised abuse on the NHS. Dame Josephine was the mover and shaker on the Warnock Committee when Thatch’s Gov’t didn’t know what the hell to do about IVF and the potential for yet more exploitation. So they appointed the clueless old bat Mary Warnock to Chair the Committee and Josephile as a member and Josephile gave the orders. See previous posts, including ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’

Josephile ruled the roost at Charing Cross Hospital, where for years the Top Docs in the Gender Identity Clinic who held some seriously weird ideas about What Real Women Are Like, psychologically tortured and inflicted great damage upon patients who were uncomfortable with their gender and who dared ask advice. The Top Docs of Charing Cross enjoyed refusing to recommend gender realignment surgery for nearly all patients until they realised that a lucrative market had opened up and then they threw their doors open to all comers.

One of Charing Cross’s most famous patients, Julia Grant, was the subject of two TV documentaries in the 1990s in which Julia was filmed being insulted, intimidated and belittled by a Top Doc who’s face was shielded from the camera; he was subsequently identified by other patients who knew him to be notorious. Julia was, after being put through hell, finally offered surgery which was carried out by a pal of the Bastard Of Charing Cross. The surgery was a major cock-up and resulted in Julia collapsing in public and nearly dying from blood loss. She was accused by the hospital who treated her in this emergency of having executed an abortion on herself. Julia explained that she was actually a transwoman. How the Docs who accused her of inducing a miscarriage missed the fact that Julia wasn’t in possession of a uterus in which to gestate a foetus to abort I can’t understand. No-one made any comment re why or how the surgery by the Highly Recommended Top Doc had ended in such catastrophe. Julia was left permanently damaged. The Highly Recommended Surgeon continued to carry out gender realignment surgery. See post ‘R.I.P. Julia Grant and Many More…’

The TV documentaries on Julia’s Journey seemed to have been planned as yet another bit of PR for the Ah the doctors they were wonderful after those allegations of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales would not go away, but the Charing Cross Top Docs and their colleagues were actually so dreadful that the Cunning Plan backfired.

 

Where these events, including the BMA ensuring that Ted Heath won the 1970 General Election, left Uncle Harry I don’t know, I suspect that very little changed for him:

Image result for pig troughing images

Nothing at all changed for Dafydd and Gwynne, Ted Heath was surrounded by all of their mates, Hailsham, Anthony Eden, Alec Douglas-Home, Selwyn Lloyd, Reggie Maudling, Maurice Macmillan, Willie Whitelaw, Lord Carrington, Peter Walker, even Thatch, all the old crowd were there. The wind of no change, it might as well have been 1962.

 

Before Lord Russell Brock finished his stint at Chairman of PPP, Crossman had been succeeded as Secretary of State for the DHSS by Keith Joseph, then Babs Castle and then David Ennals. All were on board with Gwynne and Dafydd and none of them dared take on the Top Docs, although Babs mouthed off about getting rid of pay beds. She solved the problem by a huge fudge, which ensured that plenty of private practice remained within the NHS and set up a Royal Commission under Safe Pair of Hands Sir Alec Merrison, which she knew would not Report until 1979, by which time Babs knew that it would be the problem of another Gov’t, almost certainly a Tory one, who would leave private practice well alone. See previous posts.

In 1927, Russell Brock married Germaine Louise Ladavèze (died 1978). They had three daughters. In 1979, he married Chrissie Palmer Jones.

 

Russell Brock’s contemporary Sir Thomas Holmes Sellors has featured in previous posts, but he’s worth revisiting here. The Royal College of Surgeon’s Plarr’s ‘Lives Of The Fellows’ online provides this account of Sir Thomas’s life:

Thomas Holmes Sellors, the only son of Dr Thomas Blanchard Sellors, a general practitioner and of Anne Oliver Sellors (née McSparron) was born on 7 April 1902, at Wandsworth. A few years later his father moved his practice to Southend-on-Sea and Tom, as he was always known, went to Alleyn Court Preparatory School at Westcliff-on-Sea, before moving to Loretto School, Musselburgh,

Loretto School educated a few notorious people, including the son of Shetland surgeon Norman Lamont, Alistair Darling, Andrew Marr and the crazed,violent, alcoholic, alleged child molester and former bedfellow of Esther Rantzen Sir Nicholas Fairbairn (son of Top Doc/analyst Ronald Fairbairn) and others. See previous posts.

and then to Oriel College, Oxford. He secured a university entrance scholarship to the Middlesex Hospital and qualified there in 1926. Following resident medical and surgical appointments at the Middlesex and Brompton Hospitals, he was surgical registrar to Gordon Taylor at the Middlesex. During this period he was the first recipient of the G.H. Hunt Travelling Scholarship, awarded by Oxford University in 1928, and was able to spend some time at surgical centres in Scandinavia. After a thorough grounding in general surgery, during which period he later recorded his indebtedness to Sir Gordon Gordon-Taylor, R.V. Hudson, Tudor Edwards and the physicians R.A. Young and Evan Bedford, he decided to specialise in chest surgery. He was an excellent technician and, with the contemporary rapid developments in anaesthesia, he was keen to devote himself to the specialty. He surprised some of his seniors when his book Surgery Of The Thorax was published in 1933.

In the early 1930s few of the London teaching hospitals, or the large general hospitals, offered opportunity for the newly emerging surgical specialties. But opportunity came with his appointment to the staff of the London Chest Hospital in 1934, followed by further appointments to the Royal Waterloo Hospital and Queen Mary’s Hospital, Stratford. He also secured appointments at various London County Council hospitals and sanatoria, and started chest units at the Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford, and at Leicester Royal Infirmary which entailed much travelling by car and an immense workload. Such was the peripatetic and scattered character of thoracic practice in a period when tuberculosis was principal preoccupation of a chest surgeon.

On the outbreak of the second world war he was appointed adviser in thoracic surgery to the North West Metropolitan Region, based on Harefield Hospital, Middlesex, where he worked most happily and productively until his retirement. Shortly after the war, in 1947, he was appointed thoracic surgeon to the Middlesex Hospital where he developed close and cordial relationships with the cardiologists Evan Bedford and Walter Somerville, to whose skilful assessment of cardiac problems he always paid warm tribute. From this time onwards, both at Middlesex Hospital and Harefield, cardiac surgery progressively displaced most of his earlier pulmonary and oesophageal work. As a result of this, in 1957, he was appointed as consultant surgeon to the National Heart Hospital when cardiac surgery became a rather belated function of that institution. In the second half of his surgical life he set up open heart surgery units at these last three hospitals. But he never allowed cardiac surgery at the Middlesex to threaten the work of other departments, such was his concern for the interests of his colleagues.

Not for Sir Thomas the all too familiar empire building which involved the shafting of other depts as the empire builder insisted that the lion’s share of institutional resources should be sent in their own direction…

A number of the other hospitals to which he had previously been attached provided opportunity for several of his trainees to establish thoracic and cardiac surgical centres.

Sir Thomas placed members of his network in hospitals which owed him one.

Ever courteous in the operation room, he was superb craftsman and a master of sharp dissection. He was never known to raise his voice, nor did he ever blame anyone else when things went wrong.

If ever I have time I’ll look up Great Disasters On Sir Thomas’s Watch and review that blame game that followed.

A clumsy assistant might received his favourite admonition “Juggins!”.

Oh Fiddlesticks the patient’s died on the operating table.

But he had a devoted and enthusiastic band of trainees, some of whom became internationally renowned and several of whom predeceased him.

That sounds worrying.

To all of them he was affectionately known as “Uncle Tom.” He was up at daybreak, or earlier, often visiting a ward before the residents or day staff were around. His gentlemanly style and good manners ensured excellent rapport with nursing staff and gave immense confidence to his patients.

The patients will have been absolutely reassured by ALL staff whom they encountered before they met Sir Thomas that he was excellent. Uncle Tom only had to remain on his best behaviour for the few minutes that he was in the presence of the patient and they will have believed that he was great. I have NEVER been told by a Top Doc who referred me to another Top Doc ‘they are a useless incompetent criminal bastard but I’ll refer you’.

As a member of staff in universities and medical schools I have been told by other people, including Top Doc colleagues ‘Don’t ever accept a referral to see them’ and I have of course exchanged views on Docs with friends and other patients. I was reassured by every member of NHS staff whom I met before Gwynne and Dafydd that they were excellent with sound track records; the same was said to me about Tony Francis, but unlike Gwynne and Dafydd, for much of the time Tony Francis could be nice enough in his manner for people to think that he was a good doc. After Gwynne and Dafydd had caused havoc/made themselves a laughing stock, I was told repeatedly by other Top Docs that I might not like them but other people did and other people ‘had a right’ to benefit from them no less, so I should piss off and shut up.

I have only ever heard the Top Docs in north Wales criticise one other Doc to me in my capacity as a patient: Dr David Healy. The other Top Docs do not like him and they will tell patients that Healy is a ‘maverick’ and ‘arrogant’. I have been rude about David in earlier posts because I and other patients would have appreciated David speaking out about the dangerous people trafficking nutters with whom he worked in the way that he spoke out about Big Pharma. To be fair to David I now suspect that he knew that if he had, his career would have been finished and his family would have been at risk. So David didn’t ever expose the criminal scumbags, he just rigorously criticised the worst practices of Big Pharma, but he is however the only Top Doc whom the others will be rude about to patients. All other dangerous idiots come highly recommended.

He worked with deceptive rapidity and economy of effort, seldom wasting time with idle chatter,

Juggins!

so much so that an astute trainee – anxious to secure his shrewd advice under rather pressing conditions – once hopped into his car and took an unplanned trip from Harefield to London with him.

No, Sir Thomas would have demanded the trainee’s presence in his car for that trip, no trainee would ever have ‘hopped’ into any senior Doc’s car uninvited, the suggestion that they did is ludicrous even by the standards of a Plarr’s tribute to a deceased Great Man.

Despite being in the forefront of cardiac surgery in this country, he showed a healthy conservatism in avoiding frankly experimental procedures.

That’s the great thing about Plarr’s ‘Lives of the Fellows’, if a Top Doc carries out numerous frankly experimental procedures even if the patient dies as a result, they are brave pioneers who did all they could. If they only ever treated patients as they were taught at medical school 40 years previously, they were healthily conservative.  Dafydd was recommended for ‘difficult cases’ that needed ‘unorthodox approaches’. Yet Dr James Earp of Leicester who was concealing the ring in Leicester as well as Dafydd’s Gang (see eg. ‘An Expert From England’), was ‘a good conservative psychiatrist’. Patients really are never told the truth about other Top Docs, even if they are lethal and have sex with patients before killing them.

Nevertheless, having set out to do a Blalock operation, which proved quite impossible due to dense lung adhesions in a man with bilateral pulmonary tubercule, and noting the tightness of the valvular obstruction, he calmly borrowed a tenotomy knife from a nearly orthopaedic theatre and did the first direct operation for the relief of pulmonary stenosis.

Does this not count as an experimental procedure of the sort that Uncle Tom healthily avoided?

It is worthy of report that, on hearing of this operation, one of his rivals then emulated him and got into print first. He learnt his hypothermic technique from Henry Swann and then closed some five hundred atrial septal defects, in which procedure his results were unrivalled at that time. He next unashamedly learnt his cardiopulmonary by-pass technique from John Kirklin, by which time his rapid technique became relatively less essential to a successful outcome.

It is impossible to work out what really happened from this account, who plagiarised who’s work and who achieved the most successful outcomes.

He had retired before coronary artery by-pass was established and later frankly admitted that he had believed the successful anastomosis of such small vessels to be impracticable.

From the inception of the National Health Service in 1948 he was active in the medico-political field.

So many of the Big Men (and Women) of Medicine were. The establishment of the NHS had a remarkable effect on so many non-political Top Docs who only ever had the welfare of their patients at heart.

This was almost an inadvertent development, surprising in a man who was so deeply involved in his surgical work, but largely due to his public spiritedness and readiness to serve his colleagues.

What did I just say…

He was chairman of the North West Metropolitan Consultants’ and Specialists’ Committee for some years; was a member of the Central Consultants’ Committee form its inception and its chairman for five years.

These Committees kept senior Top Docs incomes high, ensured that they remained ‘judged by their peers’ and no-one else and that they could do anything that they wanted under the umbrella of ‘clinical judgement’.

He was elected to Council of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1957. The following year he became Chairman of the Joint Consultants’ Committee in succession to Lord Brain, a demanding task which he undertook for eleven years, having received the accolade of Knight Bachelor in 1963.

The Joint Consultants’ Committee ‘link the BMA with representatives of the Royal Colleges’ and appointed the Top Docs who formed panels of investigation in the rare event of a patient’s complaint being investigated under the NHS procedure for serious complaints. When my complaint against Dafydd and the Gang was finally investigated under this procedure (nearly three years after my original complaint, I was simply ignored repeatedly while members of the Gang behaved such that it constituted yet another part of the eventual very serious complaint), the Joint Consultants Committee appointed Robert Bluglass and Colin Berry to investigate my complaint. See post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE.’ Bluglass was a friend of Dafydd’s and led the partner gang of Dafydd’s in Birmingham and Colin Berry led the partner gang of Dafydd’s which operated in Coventry. The most serious aspects of my complaint were dealt with by Bluglass and Berry by simply not investigating them.

Colin Berry was a consultant psych at the Walsgrave Hospital in Coventry. King of the Westminster Swingers and senior MI5 officer Richard Crossman was the Labour MP for the constituency; the Walsgrave Hospital was a flagship hospital built while Crossman was Secretary of State for the DHSS. In that role Crossman protected Dafydd and Gwynne and their partner gangs.

Robert Bluglass was probably the most influential Top Doc in the West Midlands for years. He was a native of Warwickshire, went to Warwick School and as an adult was part of Warwickshire High Society, in later life owning Compton Verney, one of the finest art galleries in Europe, located in Warwickshire. See previous posts. Crossman was also part of High Society in Warwickshire although his constituency was in downtown Coventry. One of Crossman’s good mates was Lord Jack Butterworth, the VC of Warwick University. Butterworth was never friends with plebs, his mates were the Arts and Culture crowd in Warwickshire and industrialists, particularly those in the midlands, as well as in the US. See previous posts.

In 1970, Jack Butterworth was found to have been involved in unscrupulous deals with businessmen and industrialists in exchange for financial support for Warwick University as the result of a group of students occupying the Registry at Warwick University – the Warwick Events – and raiding the place, finding documentary evidence of Jack’s dodgy deals as well as secret files that Jack had kept on politically active students. One of the students was Merfyn Jones, a postgrad, who later became VC of Bangor University and found himself in the firing line from the Gang and their network once more.

Had I known that Dafydd and Gwynne were running a paedophile ring rather than just trying their luck with young women, I would have staged some Events myself. Eric Sunderland got off very lightly there. I have discussed previously how Eric was a PVC at Durham University when UCNW begged him to be their Principal in the wake of the trouble that Gwynne left wherever he went. Eric had spent most of his career at Durham, having joined the staff of Durham in 1958, but it has only just dawned on me who Eric’s Big Mate was; it was Gwynne’s pal Lord John Walton of course, the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Newcastle University was part of Durham University until the early 1960s and the two institutions were very closely linked. The huge ring run by Dafydd and Gwynne’s partner gang in the North East of England was facilitated by Lord John Walton and other Top Docs at Newcastle, assisted by stooges from other disciplines at Durham and Newcastle. Brown’s mum was a Durham graduate and his father was a Newcastle graduate which made them vulnerable re surveillance.

The ring in the North East sent numerous kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales and also supplied staff to the Gang, years before Eric Sunderland was sought out to replace Sir Charles Evans as Principal of UCNW. Another key player in the Newcastle/Durham ring was Dafydd’s Top Doc mate Prof Israel Kolvin (see previous posts), but Lord John Walton was the main man. Walton was a neurologist, psychiatrist and brain surgeon, so he knew Dafydd, Gwynne AND Sir Charles Evans.

In 1984 I wrote to Eric Sunderland re Gwynne and then to the GMC. The Chairman of the GMC was er Lord John Walton.

Huge paedophile ring killing witnesses? No problem, those two were on hand!

I want to know why Eric Sunderland never got the K that he wanted and expected. I didn’t realise that Eric was in camouflage when I wrote my post ‘A Vampire At Glyndwr University!’ and suggested that he missed out on a K because he wasn’t enough of a paedophiles’ friend. Now I know that he was an even bigger and better paedophiles’ friend that most of the others, I want to know why Eric Was Overlooked.

Lilibet Ma’am! Mrs Sunderland was deeply upset that Eric wasn’t knighted! She commented to friends that Eric was so hurt by the snub! Surely Ma’am, in view of Eric destroying my career and my friends being murdered in return for UCNW not being closed down by the UGC, some sort of post-humous recognition should be considered for Prof Sunderland?

Can Dr Adrian Bell also be honoured? I have received info that he said the most appalling things about me and wrote me references so terrible that it was inevitable that I’d eventually find getting jobs very difficult, yet he was always so pleasant to my face! Perhaps Lord Bell of Llandegfan would be appropriate?

Don’t forget Prof John Farrar Ma’am! A bad tempered swearing shitbag who shagged the students whom he wasn’t spitting abuse at! It was thanks to Prof Farrar’s successful exploitation of his knowledge of what Lord Bell of Llandegfan was up to that Farrar built his plant physiology empire that led to the Award Winning Eco-Centre, which was opened by Gordon Brown himself when Gordon was PM and gunning for Merfyn!

Farrar’s ex would love to be Lady Stel; despite the dreadful state of diplomatic relations between her and Farrar, Stel ensured that she referred to ‘my John’ in every situation from which she would benefit.

Arise Lady Stel, it is what you have dreamed of! As well as constantly boasting of your non-achievements and those of My John and trying to make everyone else feel inadequate at all times under all circumstances , you can now insist on being addressed as Lady!

Dish out the honours Lilibet you ungrateful old bat, the coterie above sweated blood for you…

 

A year after demitting office as chairman of JCC, and having been Vice-President for one year, [Sir Thomas Holmes Sellors] was elected President of the Royal College of Surgeons from 1969 to 1972.

Uncle Tom was the one protecting the legendary lethal surgeons at the C&A Hospital in Bangor then.

Earlier at the College he had been Tudor Edwards and Gordon-Taylor lecturer, and was then Bradshaw lecturer in 1968 and Hunterian Orator in 1973. He also served as President of the British Medical Association and was awarded its Gold Medal.

The BMA who over years protected Dafydd and the Gang in every way that they could, although the BMA representatives and advisers were fully aware of the degree of criminality.

Did Uncle Tom award the Gold Medal to himself in his capacity as President?

After demitting office at the Royal College of Surgeons he was elected a College Patron and an Honorary Fellow of the Faculty of Dental Surgery. He was also a member of the Board of Trustees of the Hunterian Collection and ultimately its Chairman.

Despite his intensely busy surgical life he travelled widely abroad, lecturing and demonstrating in Europe, India, Russia and South America.

British Top Doctors, the Best in the World!

See the source image

He also visited the United States, Canada, Japan and South Africa, becoming an honorary fellow of the surgical colleges of South Africa and America, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. He was elected to the FRCP London and to honorary membership of the European Cardiological Society, the Academy of Medicine in Rome and the Royal Academy of Medicine in Belgium. Whilst giving a number of eponymous lectures in the course of his travels he received honorary degrees at Groningen, Liverpool and Southampton, as well as the Medaille de la Reconnaissance Française, and became an officer of the Order of Carlos Finlay, Cuba. He had a strongly international outlook

and did much for the generality of surgery and in particular for the International Society of Surgery, of which he was President from 1977 to 1979.

Those surgeons at the C&A were still killing people then.

Well after retirement from hospital and private practice he supported many good causes. He was Chairman of the Royal Medical Benevolent Fund for five years; Chairman of the National Heart Foundation; Chairman and later President of the Medical Council on Alcoholism.

Dafydd’s speciality was alcoholism and substance abuse…

Apart from the publication of his textbook at an early age, he wrote many papers and edited a number of other cardiothoracic works. He had a capacity for graceful living and was a keen gardener and a proficient painter in water colours. Few were privy to the personal tragedies he suffered during a long life of service. In 1928, aged 26, he had married Brenda Lyell, who died of appendicitis a few weeks later. In 1932 he married Elizabeth Cheshire by whom he had a son and a daughter; but, when both children were in their ‘teens their mother developed a stroke and hypertension. She died in 1953 when Tom was at one of the most demanding periods of his life.

Brenda’s sudden demise is worrying. The bride dying after only weeks of marriage beats the record of Gwynne’s mate Dr Ernest Jones who killed his wife after one year of marriage when he carried out DIY abdominal surgery on her in her mum and dad’s house in south Wales. As for Elizabeth, Uncle Tom was far too busy to ensure that she received the sort of excellence that Uncle Tom dispensed to patients at all times.

He married his secretary, Marie Hobson,

Image result for reggie perrin and joan images

in 1955, a union which was to last thirty years. Ironically, as the non-smoking wife of a thoracic surgeon, she developed lung cancer and died nearly two years before him. When he died on 13 September 1987 he was survived by his daughter, Susan, and by his son, Patrick, who is a fellow of the College and Surgeon-Oculist to Her Majesty the Queen.

A service of thanksgiving was held at St Clement Danes Church, on 2 December, 1987 when the address was given by Sir Reginald Murley, PPRCS.

Sir Thomas outlived Gwynne by one year, so was always on hand with a How Very Dare You.

See the source image

Patrick Holmes Sellors studied at Oriel College, Oxford and the Middlesex Hospital, like his father. He became an ophthalmologist and due to his general marvellousness he was appointed as a consultant at St George’s when he was just 31. Sir Patrick was also a consultant at the Royal Marsden Hospital and had an extensive private practice.

The Royal Marsden was involved in a substantial research fraud which was exposed in 1990 and resulted in the (presumed) suicide of one of those who participated in the fraud, Prof Tim McElwain. See post ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’. Another Top Doc who took part in the fraud was Tony Francis’s former colleague from Manchester, Dr Peter Macguire. The fraud involved an oncology study yet Macguire was a psychiatrist with no experience of cancer research. Despite this, Macguire had been funded by the Cancer Research Campaign, as were a number of other people involved in the fraud. The fraudulent study had begun in 1988, when I was working for the Cancer Research Campaign at Surrey University under Vincent Marks, brother of John Marks the Chairman of the BMA who was in combat with Ken Clarke while the BMA provided advice to Tony Francis et al as to how to frame me for criminal offences.

Patrick Holmes Sellors was honorary consultant to the King Edward VII Hospital for Officers and for St Luke’s Hospital for the Clergy. In 1974 Sir Patrick was appointed Surgeon Oculist to the Royal Household and in 1980 to Lilibet herself. In 1980 Mary Wynch had finally got out of Denbigh and began legal action against Dafydd and the Gang. Mr Thrope, who was married to the former wife of Lilibet’s cousin, had been acquitted of conspiracy and incitement to murder in 1979.

Sir Patrick’s obituaries tell us that his ‘main skill’ lay in ‘medico-legal work’. He must have been very skilled indeed if that eclipsed his Royal duties; his obits mention how Top Doctors would consult Sir Patrick for ‘help’. Sir Patrick was so good at getting Top Doctors out of trouble that he joined the Council of the MDU in 1977 and remained there until he retired in 2003, whereupon the MDU made him an honorary fellow. Throughout those years the MDU provided Dafydd and Tony and Sadie Francis with legal advice and representation, including in cases in which they tried to have me imprisoned in the knowledge that perjury had been committed in every case by their clients and that I had made very serious complaints about their clients that were never investigated.

Sir Patrick retired in 2003. At the time of his retirement I had just been charged with ‘threatening to kill’ Alun Davies, the manager of the Hergest Unit, on the basis of numerous NHS staff lying in police statements about me. The police who arrested me said that if I was found guilty I’d be looking at a prison sentence of seven years. The case collapsed two years later when it became clear that I hadn’t threatened to kill anyone (see post ‘Interesting Happenings In The Legal System’). There was no investigation as to why so many people had lied to the police and had turned up to Court to lie in the witness box.

Some two years ago I found out that after the case, the PNC had been unlawfully accessed to record a conviction of ‘violent disorder’ against my name and a certificate of indictment had also been forged, stating that I had been found guilty of ‘violent disorder’ (see post ‘Even More Confusion Regarding Those Legal Conundrums’ and ‘An Update On Those Legal Conundrums’). I wrote to the North Wales Police’s legal services about this and am still waiting for their explanation.

Sir Patrick died in St Thomas’s Hospital after being taken ill at an MDU celebratory dinner in 2010. What they were celebrating I do not know but he died after his colleagues’ efforts at medical treatment proved unsuccessful. Which seems like natural justice after Holmes Sellors’ career of ensuring that dangerous, lying, criminal doctors got away with framing innocent people and refusing people treatment even in life threatening situations as well as running an international trafficking ring.

See post ‘The Crème de la Creme’ for further information on Thomas and Patrick Holmes Sellors and the conspirators.

 

When Russell Brock’s senior colleague Arthur Tudor Edwards resigned his post at the Westminster Hospital to take up the position of Director of Thoracic Surgery at Pauper Kiddie Sex Central over at the London Hospital, it was Tudor Edwards’s protege Clement Price Thomas, the King’s Surgeon, who succeeded Edwards at the Westminster.

Clement Price Thomas was born in Abercarn, Monmouthshire, the youngest child of a family of nine children and they lived on Islwyn Street. His father William Thomas was a grocer and his mother, Rosamund Gertrude, was a clergyman’s daughter. Clement Price Thomas attended Newport High School before going to a boarding school in Surrey, Caterham School at the age of 13 years. He then studied at the University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire, which became Cardiff University. Although Price Thomas’s ambition was initially to become a dentist, he was subsequently awarded a scholarship to study medicine at the Westminster Hospital Medical School.

Cardiff didn’t provide clinical training for aspiring Top Docs in those days and it was very common for Welsh students to study at Cardiff initially and then undertake their clinical training elsewhere. My post ‘O Jones, O Jones’ discussed the career of Top Doc Dr Dannie Abse, his older brother Top Doc Wilfred, their friends, as well as Dannie’s brother, lawyer and Labour MP Leo Abse. Dannie and Wilfred both trained at the Westminster Hospital and they were taught by the Top Docs under discussion in this post. Dannie’s autobiography mentions some of the younger Docs under discussion in this post by name, he was mates with them.

The Abses were all facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring – their father probably facilitated organised abuse in the previous generation – and George Thomas was a family friend, having taught the boys when they were at school. Leo Abse was the Labour MP for Pontypool, 1958-83 and then for Torfaen, 1983-87, after the constituency was reconfigured and Leo single-handedly orchestrated the Children Act 1974, which resulted in so many kids being taken into care and handed over to Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang, as well as to linked rings. It was Jim Callaghan as Wilson’s Home Secretary who allowed Leo Abse to get the ball rolling for that particular venture. See post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’.

Dannie Abse was a hopeless Top Doc, wasn’t interested, wanted to leave when he was a student at Westminster and failed his exams constantly. His autobiography makes it clear that he only did medicine after being coerced into it by Wilfred and Wilfred even ordered him to go to Westminster, no other med school. Wilfred was older than Dannie and had trained at Westminster. Wilfred became a psychiatrist, worked at the asylum near Abergavenny in the late 1950s – Wilfred knew Gwynne – and then emigrated to the US (as did the Abses’ sister) and became a Prof of Psychiatry there. Dannie was the least motivated of the family, he really was only interested in poetry, for which he became famous. Yet Dannie worked as a lacklustre Top Doc for his entire life. A chest physician, specialising in TB before that was no longer a public health problem.

The extended Abse family wanted family members to be lawyers and Top Docs and they were delighted when Leo became an MP. It was excellent for the family business.

I presume that Wilfred knew this contingent of famous Top Docs from south Wales who dominated the Westminster Hospital and that’s why he went there and insisted that Dannie did as well. Their career paths are so similar that it can’t be a coincidence.

Leo Abse has been the subject of historical abuse investigations. He was close mates with George Thomas and admitted bribing people who had threatened to expose Thomas’s sexual assaults, including paying one person to begin a new life in Australia. Abse also threatened to frame and imprison another complainant if they did not shut up. See post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’.

Sounds familiar. I was threatened repeatedly and when I was at UCNW, I knew two other students who encountered the Gang. D.G.E. Wood’s wife, a senior lecturer in the Dept of Plant Biology at UCNW, secured one of them a plum job in America (well her dad worked for ‘The Daily Telegraph’, she couldn’t just be threatened and screwed over like the rest of us) and D.G.E. Wood then organised a job in Australia for the other girl. She didn’t want to go, refused and crumbled. Wood announced that he wouldn’t be ‘treating’ her again, there was no helping her. She was having a breakdown, had been terrorised by the Gang and they were trying to pack her off to Australia against her wishes… See post ‘Just A Language Divide?’.

 

Westminster Hospital in the mid-1920s. The hospital was demolished in the early 1950s; this is now the site of the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre.

Although Clement Price Thomas was introduced to thoracic surgery by Tudor Edwards, he was also influenced by Ernest Rock Carling and G. T. Mullally. In addition, encouragement in chest surgery came from J. E. H. Roberts and Morriston Davies.

Sir Ernest Rock Carling is remembered by the Royal College of Surgeon’s Plarr’s ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online:

Born on 6 March 1877, the third son of F R Carling JP of Guildford, he entered the medical school of the Westminster Hospital in 1895; in 1900, while still a student, he volunteered for the South African war, serving with the Imperial Yeomanry Field Hospital and returning to qualify in 1901. The following year he obtained honours and a gold medal in the London MB examination. After a series of house appointments and a period as demonstrator of anatomy, he was appointed to the staff of the Westminster Hospital in 1906. He was also appointed to the Seamen’s Hospital at Greenwich and served as consulting surgeon to Chislehurst, Watford, and Hornsey Hospitals. Later he became consultant to King Edward VII Convalescent Home for Officers at Osborne.

In the war of 1914-18 he was mobilised as Captain, RAMC(T), with the 4th London General Hospital, later proceeding to Belgium and France as surgical specialist with the rank of Major. After the war he was a pioneer in the use of radium and in 1928 established a radium centre at the Westminster Hospital, setting up there with the help of his son, Francis Carling, the two original radium bombs.

Readers will be impressed with the story of the radium bombs. No, Sir Ernest and his son didn’t drop a radium bomb on anyone per se, but they inserted a radium ‘bomb’ into the vaginas of a number of their patients in an attempt to treat what they believed were tumours in the pelvic area. The dose of radium was substantial and later discussions of Sir Ernest’s radium bombs described them as ‘doing more harm than good’. Sir Ernest wrote about his radium bombs most enthusiastically in the BMJ in 1929. He maintains that he used radium bombs on 13 patients, but by his own admission, he wrote to the BMJ before he knew how these patients would fare from the ‘treatment’.

However, Sir Ernest did know how four of the patients fared by the time that he wrote to the BMJ: they’d died. As a result of the radium bombs. Whoops, Ernie went overboard on the gamma rays! One patient described in the BMJ Ernie realised could not be ‘cured’, even with a radium bomb because the cancer was too far advanced, but Ernie treated her with a radium bomb anyway on the grounds that it would reduce her pain. Whoops! Ernie got it wrong again, Ernie noticed that after the bomb the tumour had not reduced at all and the patient was ‘obviously not too well’. He said no more about that patient. A third patient described in the article developed problems with wound infection after the radium bomb, but she ‘left hospital in a fair condition’.

This was 1929, oncology was very different then, but four out of 13 patients dying as a direct consequence of the treatment very soon afterwards is not a good sign. What was Ernie’s conclusions re the radium bomb, from this trial of 13 people, four of whom died almost immediately, the rest who’s prognosis was unknown because Ernie hadn’t, by his own admission, observed them long enough to know?

Ernie concluded that: ‘Since it has been proved beyond doubt that radium will entirely eradicate carcinoma in the cervix and vagina, it is logical to try and extend the influence of the radium to the growing edge of the tumour by means of intra-abdominal radium. The cases so far treated show that this method is not attended by any undue risk to the patient and the small series treated in 1923-24, show sufficiently good results to justify us in investigating further this line of treatment’.

My immediate response to this is ‘take your pick, vaginal mesh or radium bomb?’, but I am puzzled why, if Ernie shoved radium bombs up the fannies of 13 patients in 1923-24, by 1929, he did not know how successful the bombs had been. That’s five years, oncologists often work on the basis of five year survival rates and in 1929 there was not the pressure on journals that there is now, it’s not as if Ernie’s article would have been in press for two years…

There is therefore something that Ernie did not tell us. As he had cheerily admitted to shoving radium bombs up people’s nether regions, killing four of them almost on the spot, I can only wonder what Ernie omitted from his BMJ article.

This talk of intra-vaginal radium bombs in the hands of one of Gwynne and Dafydd’s mates has brought back another memory. In 1988, I was working at Surrey University in the Cancer Research Campaign team led by Prof Vincent Marks, brother of the BMA Chairman Dr John Marks. John Marks was doing battle with Ken Clarke at the time, while leading the organisation that was providing Tony Francis, Dafydd and their colleagues with free advice on how to refuse to answer my complaints and to bring charges against me, although the Welsh Office lawyer Andrew Park admitted that Francis didn’t have the evidence for the violent attacks on my part that he alleged. The BMA were nevertheless encouraging Francis to document these violent attacks as fact.

One day I sent an envelope to Gwynedd Heath Authority sealed with the radioactive warning tape that is found in labs; like Sellotape but it is yellow with a pattern on it. I used it to seal an envelope that wouldn’t stick. I remember making a comment in the enclosed letter that lest any more ridiculous allegations were made about me, no this was not a letter bomb. Imagine my surprise when, the following year, I received a copy of Bluglass’s Report into my complaint. Bluglass had written in the Report – along with the rest of the speculation and rumour pointing to my ‘dangerousness’ – that I had ‘sent a radioactive package’ to Gwynedd Health Authority which was a clear indication of how dangerously irresponsible I was. Bluglass at no time asked me about this event and neither did anyone else. There was no evidence that anyone had run a Geiger counter over that envelope sealed with the radioactive tape to see if it was radioactive and of course my comment re ‘no more false allegations please’ had been ignored. The BMA advised on the compiling of the ‘evidence’ re me sending radioactive packages to Top Docs.

Dr John Marks is a barrister as well as a Top Doctor. I’m not sure of the details, but after the lengthy period of mutual hatred between Ken Clarke and the BMA, the basis of the truce between them was the arrangement that my career and that of Brown and other witnesses would be ruined. My contract at Surrey expired after a year and was not renewed because Vincent told me that the funding had run out and we hadn’t been given anymore. I found out only last year that Vincent had given my data to Prof Nicola Curtin at Newcastle-upon-Tyne University and she published my work under her name and used it to raise further funding for her and others. See eg. post ‘Apocalypse Now’.

Anyone for a radium bomb inserted rectally into a few lying Top Docs?

Uncle Harry personally knew these people Ed.

Would Ed like to comment?

 

1929 [Ernest] published a book of instruction on radium practice in association with J Paterson Ross, and he was made a member of the Medical Research Council and of the Radium Trust. In 1930 as dean of the medical school he rendered most valuable service in the planning and development of the new Westminster Hospital.

So Sir Ernest was the man who was Dean of the Westminster Medical School and presided over the development of an institution that for some reason became very attractive to a group of Top Docs from south Wales who were systematically and rapidly building up a trafficking ring.

With the outbreak of war in 1939 he was appointed consultant adviser to the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Home Security and after the war took part in the Ministry’s survey of the Hospital Services. He was deeply interested in the social aspect of medicine, being a member of the executive council of the Institute of Almoners, and was associated with the Nuffield Provincial Hospital Trust.

Private medicine again; yet Sir Ernest was a key figure in the provision of NHS facilities and training of medical students for the new NHS…

He was a member of a number of committees connected with atomic energy, being chairman of the International Commission on Radiological Protection and the Radium Commission of the Central Health Services Council.

Atomic energy! My post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’ explained how after Dafydd was thrown out of university when he was studying chemistry, he bagged a job at Windscale, where he somehow found out about wrongdoing in High Places, both in terms of sex scandals in Gov’t but also re safety breaches at Windscale and the concealing of this at Gov’t level.

Dafydd somehow gained a place and funding to read medicine at Liverpool when he worked at Windscale; having been kicked out of one degree already, he would not have been an attractive applicant for Liverpool Medical School, yet they accepted him. I realised that Dafydd made an important contact at Windscale and will have done a deal with them, but I didn’t know who it was. Dafydd left Windscale before the fire in Oct 1957 (Dafydd qualified as a Top Doc in 1957), so that wasn’t the scandal which propelled him into Liverpool University, it was something some five or six years previously. Unless of course Dafydd qualified as a Top Doc and then caused the Nuclear Accident, nothing is beyond Dafydd.

The Windscale Fire took place on 10 Oct 1957. Dennis Vosper, Macmillan’s Minister of Health who was facilitating the Gang, suddenly stood down on ‘doctor’s advice’ – although Vosper wasn’t that ill and reappeared as a junior Minister in the Home Office in time to handle the Profumo Affair – and resigned in Sept 1957. Macmillan had only appointed Vosper in Jan 1957, when Macmillan took over as PM from Anthony Eden. Vosper’s resignation was something to do with Gwynne and Denbigh. Vosper was given a peerage in 1964 and was dead two years later, at a not very great age. See previous posts.

Did Dafydd know Sir Ernest via the embryonic Wales trafficking network?

 

[Ernest] was a wise and experienced examiner,

He knew how to move goalposts unjustly, such a process was the only way in which Dannie Abse eventually qualified by Dannie’s own admission and I very much doubt that Dafydd covered himself in glory at medical school.

having examined at London, Sheffield, and Edinburgh Universities. As a member for ten years and sometime chairman of the Court of Examiners his clinical acumen and administrative ability were universally acknowledged by his colleagues. He was vice-president of the Section of Surgery of the BMA in 1934 and a member of the Association’s Fracture Committee. In 1942 he was elected vice-president of the Westminster Hospital in recognition of his services, with special reference to the rebuilding of the Hospital.

Word had got around sex abuse circles in south Wales that the Westminster was the place to train if you wanted to be a Top Doc. The best hospital in Europe according to Wilfred Abse.

He was a popular and kindly man, despite his highly critical outlook, inspiring deep affection in all those who worked in association with him. He married Petra, daughter of the Rev E D Rock of Creeting St Peter, Suffolk, by whom he had two sons; she died in January 1959. He died suddenly at his home 49 Hallam Street, W1 on 15 July 1960. A memorial service was held in St Margaret’s, Westminster on 3 October 1960.

Another Top Doc at the centre of Those Who Propped Up Gwynne et al who suddenly pegged out in 1960; Sir Ernest popped his blogs days before Macmillan appointed Enoch Powell as Minister of Health. Ma’am Darling had married Roger Gilliatt’s mate Lord S two months previously. Sir Ernest keeled over in July and then in Sept, Sir Gordon went under the wheels of that vehicle outside the Lords cricket ground.

As well as his responsibilities at the Westminster, The King’s Top Doctor Clement Price Thomas remained the predominant chest surgeon at the Brompton Hospital. He also served as consultant in thoracic surgery to the British Army and RAF.

Wilfred and Dannie Abse both worked as chest physicians in the Forces.

Price Thomas became consultant at the King Edward VII Sanatorium, Midhurst and at the Royal National Hospital for Diseases of the Chest, Ventnor. In addition, he had responsibilities at the Welsh National Memorial Association South Wales. Through Price Thomas’s contacts and reputation, he became advisor to thoracic surgery for the Ministry of Health.

Price Thomas had been appointed Tudor Edwards’ assistant surgeon in 1932 and they performed the first case of lobectomy of the lung for bronchiectasis in the same year. This was the start of a particularly close friendship over many years. It was inevitable that Price Thomas should comfortably fit into Tudor Edwards’ position in thoracic surgery at Westminster Hospital once Edwards resigned. Later, during a Tudor Edwards Memorial Lecture, Lord Brock commented that no-one knew Tudor Edwards better than Price Thomas.

Clement Price Thomas was known to operate mostly on tuberculosis and lung tumours and became very well known by the 1940s, performing a number of successful ‘firsts’. Price Thomas was considered to be fortunate to have one of the best anaesthetists to assist, Ivan Magill. Magill was the anaesthetist who attended when Price Thomas operated on the King’s lung.

Sir Ivan Whiteside Magill (23 July 1888-25 November 1986) was an Irish born Top Doc famous for his involvement in much of the innovation and development in modern anaesthesia. He helped to establish the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland. Several medical devices are named after Ivan Magill. Originally a GP, Magill accepted a post at the Queen’s Hospital, Sidcup in 1919 as an anaesthetist. Magill, working with plastic surgeon Harold Gillies, was responsible for the development of numerous items of anaesthetic equipment but most particularly the single-tube technique of endotracheal anaesthesia.

Following the closure of the Queen’s Hospital and the diminishing numbers of patients seen from the war era, Magill continued to work with Gillies in private practice but was also appointed to the Westminster and Brompton Hospitals. Lilibet gave Magill a K in 1960, the year that Sir Ernest of the Vaginal Radium Bombs suddenly pegged out days before Ma’am Darling married Lord S and then a few months later Sir Gordon went under the wheels of something or other outside of the Lords cricket ground .

Magill was closely involved in the establishment of the Faculty of Anaesthesia of the Royal College of Surgeons where he developed the Diploma in Anaesthesia.

In 2010, a plaque marking Magill’s birthplace was unveiled in the town of Larne, N Ireland.

Magill trained at Queen’s University, Belfast, so he knew something about the elite paedophile ring based at Kincora Boys’ Home, with which Anthony Blunt and Lord Mountbatten are alleged to have been involved. The ring at Kincora was directly linked to the Gang in north Wales. The Belfast paedophile child psychiatrist Dr Morris Fraser worked with boys at Kincora. When Fraser left N Ireland – after the GMC in the 1970s permitted him to continue practising although Fraser had been convicted of child sex offences – he obtained jobs at Springfield Hospital and UCL. See previous posts.

Robert Grosvenor, the 5th Duke of Westminster, lived at his estate in N Ireland and for the first few years of his life so did Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, the 6th Duke, Carlo’s close friend. See previous posts for details of the 6th Duke’s numerous links with the Gang’s network, including St George’s Hospital and many charidees and other organisations. The 6th Duke was President of the City of Chester Conservative Association when Peter Morrison was the Tory MP for Chester. Morrison’s sex parties with kids in care from north Wales and elsewhere were widely gossiped about, both within Chester and the Chester Tory Party.

Some months ago I received an e mail alleging that as a boy, Peter Morrison had been sexually abused by Robert Grosvenor, the 5th Duke and it was suggested this was why Morrison’s own sexual development had been so disrupted.

 

Ivan Magill pegged out in Nov 1986, just a few weeks after Gwynne turned his toes up. Ollie Brooke was due to stand trial for kiddie porn offences the following month and I was on that MSc at Hammersmith, while my complaints about Jackie Brandt unlawfully detaining me in Ysbyty Gwynedd where Dafydd then tried to Talk Sex with me were being ignored. Dafydd and co had already hatched a Cunning Plan re how to have me banged up in Denbigh when I next arrived in north Wales. I have recently been told that Hammersmith Hospital were fully aware that they had the person who was blowing the whistle on the partners-in-grime in north Wales on their MSc but discreet planning behind closed doors was taking place, rather than overt threats a la Wood and Dafydd, that having already backfired in a major way.

Top Doctors! I have frequently observed that next time, just investigate serious complaints instead of resorting to increasingly serious crime in your attempts to stop a whistleblower who is not easily intimidated. It’s OK now, I understand why you didn’t. The crime was just so serious, involved so many Important People, went back so many years and led to the door of Buck House, so you could not do anything else other than murder witnesses and try and have me incarcerated in a high security hospital or indeed lobotomised.

You’re in a bit of a mess now aren’t you?

Clement Price Thomas is described as having been a ‘valuable expert counsellor’, being President of the Medical Protection Society for many years.

The phrase ‘expert’ (or ‘wise’) counsellor is Top Doc speak for ‘someone who is able to tell us how to get out of serious trouble’. After Gwynne died, a little obituary in an internal staff newsletter produced by Clwyd Health Authority described Gwynne as a ‘sensitive and wise counsellor and administrator’. Gwynne lobotomised witnesses to serious crime, but unlike Dafydd wasn’t actually found without his trousers in the female dorms in the early hours of the morning. Gwynne was every bit as bad as Dafydd, but instead he simply lied, forged documentation and gave a good impression of a poor old man who had been misunderstood by yet another nutter. His track record suggests everything but this. Thus Gwynne was a sensitive and wise counsellor.

Lie your arses off boys – and of course get at least one female Angel to do so as well, that’s essential – I’ll fabricate the documentation, we’ll gather evidence from other criminals who could also go to prison if anyone ever believes this witness and present it as ‘evidence’ that they’re so crazed and dangerous that they need psychosurgery. Not that we’ll mention the word lobotomy, that’s had rather a bad press, we’ll use the phrase ‘new treatment’ or cingulotomy or something… Problem solved. Our public and united response will be:

The Medical Protection Society, like the MDU, is an insurer of Top Doctors and provides them with legal advice. I have no problem with Top Docs being insured and receiving legal advice, but the MPS and the MDU have for many years consistently defended Top Docs whom they know to have maimed and killed patients, who were undoubtedly dangerous and whom they know have been involved in serious crime. Everyone deserves legal representation if accused, including to assist if they are guilty, but the MDU and MPS have gone way beyond that. My documents alone show that the MDU supplied Tony and Sadie Francis, as well as Dafydd, with legal advice over many years re how to refuse to respond to complaints, then have me prosecuted with a view to imprisoning me. The MDU knew that the Drs Francis and Dafydd had perjured themselves in every case, yet still they acted for them. The MDU at one point wrote to the Drs Francis advising them to drop their legal action against me because they did not have the evidence for their allegations. The Drs Francis refused to do this, so the MDU went ahead anyway and asked for my imprisonment for supposedly breaching a High Court injunction which had itself been obtained on the basis of perjury, with the MDU representing Tony Francis. See eg.’The Sordid Role Of Sir Robert Francis QC’. The MDU were also fully aware of the serious nature of my complaint and they read detailed accounts provided by me of serious crimes carried out against patients in north Wales, naming perpetrators and institutions, dates etc.

The MDU did not respond. Some of those cases against me backed by the MDU took place during investigations and inquiries into a possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire involving Top Docs, the North Wales Police and the Social Services. The MDU and MPS have no excuse for their actions.

After the ‘rogue surgeon’ Ian Paterson went to prison a few years ago following his maiming of scores of patients, having carried out unnecessary operations on them for financial gain, Paterson’s insurers (it was either the MDU or MPS) refused to compensate the women/ their families, on the grounds that by not doing what a Top Doc should be doing, Paterson was in breach of his contract and therefore they would not be stumping up. The women remained maimed and dead.

My post ‘Gwlad y Menig Gwynion’ discussed many of those who have held senior roles in the MPS and MDU. They were/are often Docs and others who have concealed criminality and patient harm themselves, including Sir George Godber, for years the Gov’t CMO who moved mountains to ensure that Gwynne and Dafydd were able to continue in their own sweet way, and Lord Simon Glenarthur, who as Thatch’s Minister for Health was personally responsible for purchasing all that infected blood from the US to be used on NHS patients, from which thousands of people contracted hepatitis and/or HIV. See previous posts.

Price Thomas was a founder President of the Medical Council on Alcoholism; Thomas Holmes Sellors followed him as President as a later date. The Winter 1973 issue of the journal ‘Alcohol and Alcoholism’ (Vol 8, Issue 1, 11 Dec 1973) Paid Tribute to Price Thomas as Founder of the Medical Council on Alcoholism and mentioned that even after Clement had ‘relinquished’ this office in 1973, he was a ‘friend and mentor’ to the organisation. The article explained that at the inaugural meeting of the Council in April 1967, Price Thomas’s opening address maintained that there was an urgent need for such a body which ‘he believed would usher in a new phase in the approach to the medical and medical-social aspects of alcoholism in Britain’. We were told that although ‘for some time illness had prevented Clement from attending meetings of the Council, he had been persuaded to remain in office and he’d continued to keep in close touch with its affairs and to give his  counsel on many an important occasion’.

Regular readers will know that the biggest alcohol/drugs charidee in north Wales – and probably in the whole of Wales by now as well – is Dafydd’s charidee CAIS. Dafydd established CAIS in the mid-1970s, because guess what, Dafydd Identified A Need. Back at the birth of CAIS, the Need identified by Dafydd was primarily that of Booze. The explosion in class A drugs in north Wales didn’t happen until 1984, which coincided with CAIS declaring a Problem with Cannabis Psychosis while the CAIS workers flogged class A drugs to the people who had been diagnosed with Cannabis Psychosis. See previous posts eg. ‘Amber Rudd, The Miners’ Strike and A Memory Jogged’.

Not only did Dafydd Identify A Need re booze back in 1977 or thereabouts but Dafydd pioneered a rather different approach to alcoholism than that popularised by AA ie. public confession and the mantra that once an alkie always an alkie and that the only answer is never to touch another drop again. Dafydd promoted Moderate Drinking In Alcoholics. Which as any fule kno – or at least everyone in north Wales knew – was because Dafydd, an alcoholic, liked a wee dram himself and had no intension of giving up. It was such a laugh in the 1990s when Dafydd’s Battle Against Cannabis spilled over onto Welsh TV, including onto the Kane Debates (see previous posts) and there would be Dafydd sitting in the studio audience with a huge red alcoholic nose. Vincent Kane would say things like ‘I have never puffed a joint because it is illegal’ and the blowers of dope in the audience would argue with Kane and then Dafydd would be given the last word on the matter by Kane, Dafydd being an Expert who specialised in Drugs. Meanwhile Dafydd’s Drugs Patients – Dafydd used to tell them that he loved them and they were paid to appear on TV and say that they would be dead without Dafydd – would be in Bangor High Street or even in the Royal Oak in Rachub flogging class A drugs.

I always presumed that Dafydd invented the business of moderate boozing for alcoholics because he wanted to use that excuse himself, so imagine my surprise when I was researching for this blog and I found out that this was actually an idea promoted by David Lewis Davies, the Dean of the Institute of Psychiatry at the Maudsley back in Dafydd’s era of Being Trained at the Maudsley. David Davies established himself as the UK Expert on alcoholism and its treatment and published a journal article that Reconfigured The Field, in that it demonstrated that alcoholics could indeed drink moderately yet not slip into serious drinking. Sadly Davies subsequently discovered that most of his sample (which was tiny, seven people) were not actually alcoholics. Davies’s ‘research’ was ludicrous, it would have been inadequate as an undergrad project yet alone the ‘clinical trial’ upon which the Dean of the Maudsley was to base his treatment approach. Not that it did David Davies any harm; on the back of this research, he became an Expert, raised funding and established an Alcohol Education Centre at the Maudsley which quietly imploded after a few years. Davies also served as the President of the Society of Addiction and was on the Editorial Board of the ‘Journal Of Addiction’. David Davies was alleged to have inspired other Top Docs who established their names on the back of their success in treating alcoholics, such as Max Glatt, who don’t seem to have had much more of a solid base for their reputations than David Davies. See previous posts.

David Davies went to Oundle School, as did Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Sir Kenneth Robinson, Dafydd and Gwynne’s friend and protector and the first Minister of Health under Harold Wilson also went to Oundle. There was just a few years difference in age between Davies and Robinson. Lord Newborough aka Micky Wynn, another umbrella for Gwynne, Dafydd and the Gang, went to Oundle at a similar time to Davies and Robinson. See post ‘And Death Shall Have No Dominion’. A number of other Oundle old boys were members of the Gang’s wider support network, such as Sir Peter Scott. See previous posts.

After Oundle, David Davies went to St John’s College, Oxford before training as a Top Doc at Manchester University. There were a number of alumni of St John’s College, Oxford who were of direct assistance to the Gang, such as the corrupt mandarin Sir Idwal Pugh, who served as Permanent Secretary in the Welsh Office and then as Parliamentary and Health Ombudsman, ensuring that the Gang’s criminality could continue and indeed expand unhindered. See post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’. Other St John’s alumni who are of the Gang’s network include Edward du Cann, Kingsley Amis and Philip Larkin. See eg. ‘The Milk Street and Other Mafias’.

Dafydd did pretty much the same thing in north Wales, but with CAIS rather than a Centre. Dafydd received funding from Gwynedd County Council and from other sources and CAIS grew from there. People in north Wales continued to experience serious problems with alcohol and such was the dissatisfaction with Dafydd and CAIS (Dafydd was eventually appointed as THE Top Doc for those with alcohol and drug problems, so there was no escaping him if you fell into that category) that people went to AA instead. I have described in a previous post how a former patient and friend of Dafydd’s, in the 1990s called himself Rev, wore a dog collar and was given access to the wards, offices and patients of the Hergest Unit, although he was not a ‘real’ Minister. The Rev appeared on TV as well, Supporting Dafydd. Then turned up at AA in Bangor, where his status as a Minister was questioned by someone known to me who was a regular at AA. That man was then barred from AA meetings. See previous posts.

Dafydd’s Gang just ran everything in north Wales, everything. If they weren’t running something, they soon ensured that they were.

Dafydd metamorphosed into Wales’s Leading Substance Abuse Expert who was afforded wall to wall media coverage after I refused to withdraw my complaints about the Gang and began to be dragged through the Courts by them constantly. The ante was upped yet more from spring 1994, after Patient F and I met with the Mental Health Act Commission and told them that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that serious complaints were not been investigated.

F, when young, had used drugs, but cannabis and psychedelics rather than class A addictive substances. He knew that Dafydd was selling drugs to the addicts in his ‘clinics’ at the Hergest Unit and F confronted the Hergest Unit staff about this. See ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’ F and I were then banned from the Hergest Unit on the grounds that we were a Danger To Dafydd. Particularly me.

As Dafydd got serious about his drugs business in north Wales in the early-mid-1980s, he also had a helping hand in the Commons, in the form of John Tilley, the Labour MP for Lambeth Central. There are records in Hansard of Tilley urging the Gov’t to provide much more funding for Top Docs and charidees who treated alcoholics and drug addicts. See previous posts.Had there been evidence that those Top Docs and charidees were in the least bit effective or helpful, that would have made sense, but the evidence was just not there.

Neither was it just Dafydd who was running drugs charidees and wards where drugs were openly flogged by docs, Angels and other patients; I was always told by F that it was standard practice. The material that I have read since beginning this blog confirms everything that F used to tell me; that NHS and private clinics were and are crawling with people who constantly urge patients to buy drugs from them. F, as a young hippy in hospital in the south of England in the 1970s after experiencing what was probably an LSD-elicited psychosis, was offered heroin. By the consultant psychiatrist who had sectioned him. I have always believed F re that anecdote, he supplied me with much detail and I double checked. F maintained that this psych was making a fortune by knowingly encouraging patients to become addicted to heroin and cocaine; that Top Doc does not seem to have been alone in doing that.

As for John Tilley’s lobbying for increased Gov’t funding for drugs and alcohol services, John Tilley was the man who suddenly arrived in south London in 1968, joined Wandsworth Council and in 1971 found himself Council Leader. Wandsworth was the location of the ring run from St George’s/Springfield Hospital/Wandsworth Social Services and that ring also dealt in class A drugs. Tony Francis’s former Top Doc colleague from south Wales, Prof Hamid Ghodse, led the Drugs team at St George’s/Springfield and they were selling class As to clients. See post ‘A Galaxy of Talent’.

Previous posts have discussed how the Top Docs at Springfield, the psych unit affiliated to St George’s, knew Dafydd’s former boss at the Maudsley, Bob Hobson and that Tony Francis wrote to Springfield Top Docs and told them to contact Lucille Hughes at Gwynedd Social Services for information re my dangerousness. Wandsworth Social Services also rang and wrote to Lucille and Tony Francis re information that I presented to the life and limb of everyone. I have never had any contact or ‘service’ from Wandsworth Social Services, was never offered one and never asked for one. I was unaware of these communications until my lawyers finally managed to obtain my records years later. Neither have I ever been a client of Gwynedd Social Services, although they were always happy to perjure themselves in their attempts to imprison me.

It was a huge trafficking and drug dealing ring run by Top Docs and Social Services.

Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, 6th Duke of Westminster, was, among many other things, President of the Drugs and Alcohol Foundation, 1987-97 and President of the Life Education Centre for Drugs Prevention, 2000-12. Gerald was also President of the National Kidney Research Fund, 1985-97, a charidee set up by Sir William Asscher when he was based at the Welsh National School of Medicine (the charidee has had several changes of name and I think now calls itself Kidney Wales). Previous posts have discussed the central role that Lord Peter Walker played in Dafydd and Gwynne’s enterprise. Peter Walker was the Tory MP for Worcester, 1961-92. Gerald Grosvenor was President of the Worcestershire Cricket Club, 1984-86. Gerald lived at his estate in Cheshire.

John Tilley arrived in south London months before John Allen opened his first children’s home in north Wales in 1968. Tilley was elected as the Labour MP for Lambeth Central in 1978, serving as the MP until 1983, when the seat was abolished. Tilley didn’t return to Parliament but he was later Chief Economic Adviser to the London Borough of Hackney. Where Dafydd’s partner gang sent kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales. There was a big ring in Lambeth, facilitated by the Maudsley. It merged with the ring in Wandsworth and Lambeth sent numerous kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales…

John Tilley was friends with Lord Scarman and Tilley was Lord Scarman’s adviser and tour guide when Scarman was appointed to dispense wisdom after the 1981 Brixton riots, as discussed in previous posts.

Clement Price Thomas ended up leading the team that removed the cancerous left lung from King George VI after the King had been unwell in 1951 and was advised by his physicians Sir Daniel Davies, Sir Horace Evans, Geoffrey Marshall and Sir John Weir, to return to London from Balmoral and confine himself to his room. He was described as having ‘catarrhal inflammation’ and that rest might improve it. However, the King did not improve and was considerably weak, thin and pale with little exercise tolerance due to intermittent claudication, a painful condition that arises from peripheral vascular  disease, often as a result of heavy smoking.

The King’s peripheral vascular disease came in handy when an explanation was needed from Price Thomas’s support group as to why the King fared so badly after his successful operation and then died. One thing that would seem evident is that the King did not have catarrh.

Horace Evans starred in a previous posts. Horace was yet another Top Doc from south Wales, Dowlais, Merthyr Tydil precisely. Lord Horace is seen as one of the Great Doctors of his time, along with Lord Dawson of Penn and Lord Horder, but as with Lord Dawson of Penn who admitted to hastening the death of King George V (see previous posts), Lord Horace’s patients didn’t always benefit from Horace’s clinical efforts as they would have wanted. It was Horace who in 1953 directed Anthony Eden, then Churchill’s Foreign Secretary, the way of John Hume, Cardinal Basil Hume’s brother, for a routine gall bladder operation. John Hume made a major elemental error that nearly killed Eden and from which he never fully recovered. Horace blamed Churchill for ‘intimidating’ Hume before the surgery. Lilibet was known to dislike Eden and his wife Clarissa and Eden made his view known that the Royal Family should not exert influence on the political decisions of Gov’t. Horace had been appointed Physician to Queen Mary in 1946, Physician to King George VI in 1949 and became Physician to Lilibet in 1957.

Eden’s performance and health when PM was adversely affected by him developing an addiction to Benzedrine. It was prescribed by Horace Evans who was Eden’s Top Doc and Horace Evans was fully aware of the effect that it was having on Eden, yet did not warn Eden or try to reduce his dependence. See previous posts.

Eden’s health problems were used as part of the ammo against him before his resignation as PM in Jan 1957. 1957 was the year in which Gwynne did something so grim that in the autumn Macmillan, who had succeeded Eden as PM, reshuffled his Gov’t to conceal it. Dafydd qualified as a Top Doc in 1957 and joined the party at Denbigh before popping off to the Maudsley to make business contacts. Horace became Lord Horace in 1957.

Lord Horace spent his early years in Dowlais but the family moved to Liverpool when his father was offered the job of conductor of the Liverpool Welsh Choral Union, so Horace ended up a pupil at Liverpool College, the school attended by a few of Dafydd’s Gang, including Lord David Hunt. Lord Horace’s family, like Lord Platt’s were Musical and Horace studied at the Guildhall School of Music from the age of 12. At the age of 18 he decided to pursue a career in medicine instead and became a student at the London Hospital. Horace remained at the London Hospital for much of his career, becoming a consultant there. He was a good mate of John Ellis and Clifford Wilson, who became the two Profs leading the facilitation of the Westminster Paedophile Ring by the 1960s. Horace will have known William Asscher at the London Hospital as well. Horace did not see the glorious creation of the international trafficking ring which was murdering witnesses by the 1980s, because sadly Horace died at the age of 60 on 29 Oct 1963, 11 days after Macmillan resigned as PM. Horace’s wife died in 1963 as well. There wasn’t much left of famille Evans by 1963 because Horace’s daughter had been ‘electrocuted in a tragic accident’ as a child, I think in the family home. Horace had another daughter as well, but being female she couldn’t inherit the peerage, so it died with him.

See previous posts for further details of Horace, Baron Evans of Merthyr Tydfil, who spent a lot of time in er Monaco. Perhaps he knew Princess Grace who met an unfortunate end herself?

 

A series of X-rays of the King’s lungs were reviewed which, reported by Dr Peter Kerley, a Westminster Hospital radiologist, – Abse’s colleague – suggested a tumour.

After Sir Horace Evans consulted Clement Price Thomas, a bronchoscopy was organised. The bronchoscopy and biopsy were performed on 16 September 1951 and the result confirmed lung cancer. The diagnosis was kept secret from the King, who was sent for surgery to remove a blockage.

Now you don’t worry my dear we’ll look after you…

It was ‘not customary for the public to need to know too much detail’. That is understandable, but if you’re a King with lung cancer, you probably would like to know.

By 11 am on Sunday 23 September 1951, the operation on the King’s lung was being performed by Price Thomas and his assistants Mr Charles Edwin Drew and Mr Peter Jones in Buck House. Following surgery, the King was moved back into his own bedroom. Drew and Jones stayed overnight to supervise his early recovery. Distracted on his way home from Buck House on the day of the operation, Price Thomas collided with another car, an accident that the police refused to prosecute him for.

It was not customary for the public to need to know too much detail.

‘Mind how you go Sir’:

Image result for noddy and big ears mr plod blyton images

Despite injury to the left recurrent laryngeal nerve and an effect on the King’s voice, the cancerous lung was successfully removed.

The King died on 6 Feb 1952 five months after that successful operation performed by Clement Price Thomas.

 

In 1925, Price Thomas married Ethel Doris, whose father was Mortimer Ricks from Paignton in South Devon. Price Thomas’s son Martyn Price Thomas FRCS (1935–2000) was also a surgeon.

Price Thomas lived in St John’s Wood and ‘was very welcoming and deeply religious’. St John’s Wood housed another Royal Top Doc, the phenomenally violent Arthur Dickson Wright, dad of Clarissa. See post ‘Arthur Dickson Wright – An Appreciation’. Some years later Ronnie Waterhouse lived in St John’s Wood and was a leading light in the St John’s Wood Society. Ronnie’s celeb neighbours included a selection of senior lawyers and judges as well as Paul McCartney. Top Tosser Jonathan Miller also resided in St John’s Wood as did Vanessa Feltz… Many supporters of Dafydd’s network were to be found there.

Price Thomas was ‘dedicated to his wife and sons. He retained his Welsh accent as well as his Welsh patriotism’. Even in St John’s Wood. I have come to realise that what people like Price Thomas who haven’t lived in Wales for years and who have become very much part of the English London-based elite, particularly those who rub noses with Royalty, mean by ‘retaining their Welsh patriotism’ is ‘maintaining close connections with all the other crooks who also have links to Wales’.

Ah bechod, I’m dedicated to the London Welsh Centre (see previous posts) it’s hiraeth. Recent Presidents of the London Welsh Trust include:

 

As cardiac surgery expanded and became more complex in the 1950s, Price Thomas decided to leave that to his junior colleagues. Charles Drew went on to research hypothermia and cardiac surgery whilst Peter Jones carried on with thoracic surgery. They have both know Bentall and the crew at Hammersmith…

Price Thomas was a chain-smoker himself, carrying at least 50 cigarettes in his pocket, and consequently he suffered from lung cancer. His caricature in Ellis’s Operations That Made History, 1996, shows a suited Price Thomas with numerous cigarette stubs at his feet. So in 1996, the year of the suppression of the Jillings Report and the announcement of the Waterhouse Inquiry, someone reminded everyone of Clement Price Thomas and the King’s operation…

In 1964, Price Thomas underwent a lobectomy for lung cancer himself, performed by Charles Drew, who had assisted him in the King’s operation in 1951. Price Thomas fared rather better than the King had when Price Thomas and Drew performed exactly the same operation on him, although Price Thomas smoked like a chimney. No intermittent claudication for Price Thomas! Or even catarrh. Despite his ill-health, Price Thomas remained active…re his presidencies of numerous bodies and he lived for another nine years, dying at the age of 79, on 19 March 1973…

Price Thomas was President of the Travelling Surgical Club, as it was known from 1952 to 1972. Now known as the Travelling Surgical Society of Great Britain, the Price Thomas Travelling Fellowship was established in the memory of Price Thomas and his surgeon son Martyn.

The operating table used in the operation on King George VI’s lung is on display at Westminster Hospital. Dr Cyril F. Scurr donated the ECG machine to the British Oxygen Company Museum at the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain.

Clement Price Thomas’s thoracotomy on King George VI was re-enacted in Stephen Daldry‘s TV series The Crown in 2016. ‘The highly realistic and accurate model of the King complete with surgical incisions was donated to the Gordon Museum of Pathology as an educational aid’.

The controversies over the cause of the King’s death were also touched on in the film The King’s Speech. As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I never watched that film. But I will now. ‘The King’s Speech’ was made in 2010. The year before Operation Pallial was launched as more and more people discussed the huge cover-up that was the Waterhouse Inquiry.

In 2010 the crap really rained down on the head of Merfyn Jones the VC of Bangor University, as described in previous posts. At that time, it was coming from the direction of one Gordon Brown in particular. Who was a mate of Eric Hobsbawm, the Hobsbawms being really chuffed to be mates with a PM at last. They must have suffered dreadfully through the years of Footie, the Windbag etc, not Being Friends With The PM.

Unlike Merfyn I never knew the Hobsbawms, Clough, Bertrand Russell, EP Thompson etc but my best mate from school and her husband were shafted by Gordon’s pal Lord Jack McConnell who used his knowledge of what was happening to me at the hands of Dafydd’s Gang to become FM of Scotland. My other claim to a place in the Hall Of Lame is that Sheila Jenkins, a bitch of a people trafficking social worker who worked for Gwynedd Social Services, slandered and libelled me, broke confidence (or rather just made things up which she disguised as Sharing Information ie GOSSIPING) and tried to have me thrown out of Ysbyty Gwynedd by the police by making fallacious allegations about me, although I had been invited there for an appointment with a Top Doc (ooh we never unlawfully denied Sally Baker NHS care, we just made things so fucking difficult by lying through our teeth that she was arrested every time she walked through the door). Sheila was the mum of Sarah Jenkins, who was on the psychology degree at Bristol University with Gordon’s wife Sarah, who was Eric Hobsbawm’s daughter Julia’s schoolfriend and later business partner, in their PR company which took on much work from the trade unions and the Labour Party. In 1984-85, Sarah Jenkins shared accommodation with Christine Lippai, a girl with whom I had been at UCNW; Sarah and Christine rented their place from DGE Wood! See previous posts.

Clement Price Thomas is of course remembered by the Royal College Of Physicians ‘Lives Of The Fellows’ online:

Clement Price Thomas…In 1927 he was appointed to the staff of the Westminster which he served until his retirement….He served on the Court of Examiners of the Royal College of Surgeons from 1948-1952 and was elected to the Council of that body in 1952, ultimately becoming a Vice-President from 1962-1964. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 1960…

Lord Robert Platt was the President of the Royal College of Physicians, 1957-62. Lord Platt was one of the Biggest Top Doctors in Britain during the 1950s and 60s. Lord Platt was a renal specialist, as was William Asscher, Mr Big re facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring during the 1980s. Lord Platt held the Chair of Medicine at Manchester University and for many years was Head of the Central Manchester Health Authority. He will undoubtedly have known about the abuse ring at Manchester with which Dafydd and Gwynne were linked and under which they received protection. Lord Platt was famously insulting about psychiatrists although his wife was one. Lord Platt will have probably thought that the fate of psych patients or kids in care was not worth worrying over, but his wife must have been part of the group of Top Docs that were facilitating the ring in Manchester. I have not yet managed to find details of Mrs/Lady/Dr Platt.

Although Lord Platt concerned himself with far more important things than psychiatry, such as Real Medicine, there were what I now realise were chinks in the armour which were always written off as Lord Platt being an eccentric old bugger. Lord Platt was President of the Eugenics Society, as were many of the Top Docs at the Maudsley and remained a eugenicist long after it had become unfashionable. Platt was also President of the Family Planning Association (FPA). The FPA always dressed itself up as being about ‘planned parenthood’ but previous posts have named many leading lights in the FPA who were facilitating the Gang and other abusers; it was because ‘Family Planning’ covered equipping underaged girls (or indeed people of any fertile age) who were being abused or forced into sex work with contraception or dealing with the pregnancies that resulted. It was an excellent cover, because like Therapists who are involved with organised abuse it could be constructed as being the interest of a liberal, caring person. Baroness Audrey Houghton was concealing the abuse that her husband Douglas Houghton facilitated and she was involved with the FPA in the name of Fighting For Wimmin and Dr John Dunwoody who colluded with organised abuse both as a Top Doctor, politician and NHS senior manager – his wife the Labour MP Gwyneth Dunwoody concealed the Gang as well and even daughter Tamsin launched a career as a Labour politician in the Welsh Assembly on the back of it all – was an FPA big wig. See previous posts.

Something odd was going on with the anti-smoking group ASH as well. Lord Platt and John Dunwoody were leaders in that organisation and I’ve found some archives naming other Defenders Of Dafydd and Gwynne who played key roles in ASH but I haven’t had time to blog about that yet.

Another perceived eccentricity of Lord Platt’s was his support for the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital in the face of Camden Health Authority’s plans to close it in the 1980s. When I wrote my earlier piece about Lord Platt in the post ‘The Crème de la Creme’, I attributed noble motives to him for supporting the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital in the face of his colleagues maintaining that it was not a ‘progressive’ cause. I have revised my view.

The Elizabeth Garrett Anderson famously was a hospital for women staffed entirely by female Top Docs. There was a near riot when Camden tried to close it and the opposition to closure was led substantially by Wimmin’s Champs, including Wendy Savage. Camden was the site of a big ring linked to Dafydd and Gwynne and the connection went back many years because of the presence of so many from Camden/Hampstead among the Welsh Bloomsbury Set and their friends. So it would make sense that women patients might be keen to be treated by female staff. Except that as in north Wales, in Camden the women were completely on board with the ring and provided a most excellent cover. But ALL the staff are women! That does not mean that they are not assisting a gang of male sex offenders; indeed as in north Wales, some of the Wimmin’s Champs in Camden were married to the offenders or their mothers, daughters etc… Or just good mates with them or knew that they could do very nicely if they colluded with this. As demonstrated by Baroness Peggy Jay, Baroness Tessa Jowell, Baroness Barbara Brooke and so many more previously featured on this blog.

Or by Camden Wimmin of a younger generation.

Anyone for a radium bomb?

Whether Lord Platt was simply on board with organised abuse because it was his wife’s bread and butter, whether he was on board because Gwynne and Dafydd and the rest were Fellow Members Of The Profession and Lord Platt couldn’t bear to not stand shoulder to shoulder with them or whether Lord Platt was in the thick of it I don’t know. But the support of Lord Platt and his wife being Of The Gang will have provided even better armour for Dafydd and Gwynne than the presence of Sir Douglas Black at Manchester University. See post ‘The Logic Of Medicine’.

Of course Manchester University was host to Isabel Emmett and Dorothy Emmet, pals of Bertrand Russell. Dorothy was also a pal of George Thomas. See post ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’ Lord Platt and his Wide Cultural Interests will have found enjoyable company in such circles.

Here are a few Interesting Facts about Lord Platt:

Platt was born in St Marylebone, to a family unconnected with science or medicine, but infected with ‘music, the stage and the wanderlust’. His father, William Platt, with his wife Susan Willis, founded a co-educational boarding school in Grindleford, Derbyshire. Susan Willis was the first woman to become one of HM Inspectors of Schools. An uncle was a close friend of Keir Hardie.

Robert was educated at King Alfred’s School, Hampstead; at his parents’ school at Grindleford and at Sheffield University, where he qualified as a Top Doc.

Robert Platt was created Baronet in 1959, the year that Geraint Morgan QC, a barrister who worked in Chambers in Manchester, was elected the Tory MP for Denbigh. Robert Platt had homes in London and Buckinghamshire. Geraint Morgan’s parents were farmers from Carmarthenshire who moved to farm in Buckinghamshire.

Platt was appointed assistant physician to the Royal Infirmary Sheffield in 1931 and full physician in 1934, rapidly acquiring a considerable private practice.

Platt served in the RAMC, 1941-44, in Britain, North Africa and Italy.

Platt was a socialist and enthusiastic supporter of the NHS. He resigned from the BMA in 1947 and never rejoined.

Platt was a member of the MRC and later Chairman of its Clinical Research Board; a Member of the Royal Commission on Medical Education; Chairman of the first joint working party of the profession and the health departments, set up to review the medical staffing of hospitals; Chairman of the Merit Awards Committee; President of the National Society for the Abolition of Cruel Sports.

Platt’s support for women in medicine was ‘well-ahead of its time’. Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain was supportive of women in medicine.

In 1967 Platt became a life peer and attended regularly in the Lords for the next eleven years. He sat on the cross benches, in order, as he said, to be able to speak for medicine rather than to represent a party point of view. Platt spoke often and on many subjects, including the NHS, health education, divorce, pornography and voluntary euthanasia.

Outside medicine, Platt’s greatest interest was music, in particular playing the cello in string quartets. Platt served on the Committee of the Hallé Concert Society, 1947-53 and was a member of the Council of the Royal Manchester College of Music. From 1952 to 1965 Platt was Chairman of the Manchester Chamber Concerts Society.

Platt defended hereditary representation in the Lords.

The Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online tribute asked of Platt ‘how did a man with such a background and such ideas come to exert the influence he did on a traditionally conservative body like the RCP?’

Here’s a clue:

See the source image

Platt’s first marriage in 1922 to Margaret Irene Cannon, a psychiatrist, produced a son and two daughters. The marriage was dissolved in 1974 and he married secondly Sylvia Jean Haggard (née Cavely) ARCM (viola).

Lord Platt’s son, Sir Peter Platt, was born in Sheffield, one of the hubs of Jimmy Savile’s crime empire, which was ignored by, among many in Sheffield, David Blunkett (see post ‘The Big Questions’) and became Professor of Music at the University of Sydney. Sir Peter died on 3 Aug 2000, seven months after the publication of the Waterhouse Report. By Aug 2000, Julia Hobsbawm’s friend Sarah’s husband Gordon was Chancellor of the Exchequer. Julia’s dad Eric was a pal of Gordon’s and Gordon used to pop over to Eric’s for dinner.

The month after Sir Peter Platt died, Gordon’s mate Jack McConnell, who had been at Stirling University with my two friends who also found themselves under attack from gangsters after they supported me and wanted to make a TV documentary about north Wales (see eg. ‘The Turn Of The Screw’), became the Scottish Gov’t Cabinet Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning. My friends’ first baby had died shortly after birth as a result of clinical negligence at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton in 1999. A Top Doc who knew them socially told them not to bother to sue because he knew that the staff were all going to lie about the circumstances of Angel’s death. As a result of their distress over Angels’ death my friends were unable to resume their work as film scriptwriters for a few years. They had built that side of their work up after having been forced out of their jobs at the Royal Television Society and the BBC at the same time as I was forced out of medical research. See previous posts.

On 22 Nov 2001 Jack McConnell became Scotland’s FM. I had qualified as a teacher in May 2001, but the Gang were already putting their latest dastardly plan into action to ensure that I was out of teaching within a year on the basis of lies, gossip, rumour and a failed attempt to frame me for ‘threats to kill’ on the basis of the perjury of some eight NHS staff. David Blunkett was Home Secretary at the time…

 

Lord Platt died on 30 June 1978 and although it is tempting to observe that a keystone of the Pyramid of Gwynne had been removed, as any fule kno Death Shall Have No Dominion. In fact after a criminal Top Doc has snuffed it, as I have found, should one say ‘Can I remind you of what he actually did?’, one is met by an even bigger

Well he didn’t defend himself when he was alive, he lied, forged documentation and Got His Mates Onto Me, which suggests that my ‘allegations’ may have had substance.

Image result for lord denning

Lord Denning was a member of Lincoln’s Inn, as was George Carman QC, the corrupt barrister who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the criminality of Dafydd and Gwynne as well as that of Jimmy Savile. Miranda was George Carman’s pupil and Cherie worked in Carman’s Chambers until 1988. Cherie and Miranda were members of Lincoln’s Inn.

Though Price Thomas was primarily a general surgeon at the Westminster Hospital his career was principally concerned with thoracic work, where he was internationally recognized as a pioneer and leader. In the early days most of his work was concerned with pulmonary tuberculosis, where the development of surgical techniques played an important part in treatment. His skill in the selection of suitable patients for operative procedures was remarkable

He stuffed up with that King though.

and technically he was acknowledged a master. He was well known for having introduced into this country the operation of selectiveupper thoracoplasty pioneered by his friend Carl Semb of Oslo, and remained a dominant figure in this field as long as tuberculosis created the demand.

He was responsible for introducing the operative treatment for coarctation of the aorta to this country. He invited Clarence Crafoord from Stockholm to demonstrate the technique and ensured that his colleagues could share theexperience. He withdrew from the developing field of cardiac surgery owing to the pressure of work in the pulmonary field.

At the end of his career he was afflicted by one of those chest conditions for which he had so often given relief and in spite of a successful operation he became increasingly incapacitated and died at the age of 79.

At least Price Thomas’s successful operation saw him through another nine years of life, whereas the poor old King…

His marriage to Ethel Doris Ricks (Dorrie) in 1925 was extremely happy and they had two sons; one now a surgeon, the other an architect.

Clem was one of the most dominant and exciting figures of his day: a smallish man, full of vitality and with real humanity and warmth. He had no enemies and all who knew him had the greatest admiration and affection for him. In spite of his fame, and his ebullience, he was an extremely modest man without any sign of pomposity. As a surgeon he was superb, but he will be best remembered as a pioneer and a teacher. He taught informally, with many reminiscences and anecdotes, and his ward rounds were attended to overflowing. With his sense of humanity, judgment and humour, he was the ideal ‘operating-physician’.

Clement features in the Dictionary of Welsh Biography as well:

Clement Price Thomas… after a series of training posts at the Westminster Hospital in 1927 he was appointed to the consultant staff of the hospital as a general surgeon, where he came under the influence of another Welshman, Swansea-bornArthur Tudor Edwards,already acknowledged as a leader in thefield of thoracic surgery.

The physicist Lord Brian Flowers who spent much of his career at Imperial College, who served as VC of Manchester and London Universities and was one of the most senior academics at London overseeing the research fraud and crime in the London medical school which accompanied the trafficking ring, grew up and went to school in Swansea. There is a Swansea mafia – Rhodri Morgan’s family and Edwina Hart were/are part of it – and Flowers was as well, even when he was at the top of the tree in academia and in the Lords. See previous posts eg. ‘A Bit More Paleontology’.

After Edwards’s resignation from the Westminster Hospital in 1930 to organise a department of thoracic surgery at the London Hospital, Price Thomas took over direction of the thoracic surgery work at the Westminster.

…During the 1930s and beyond [Price Thomas] played a leading role intransforming the discipline from one viewed with much apprehension to one enjoying widespread acceptance… Price Thomas’s reputation was such that patients came from all over the world to consult him and when, in 1951, it was decided that King George VI required surgical treatment for a diseased lung it was Clement Price Thomas who was invited to perform the operation… The immediate outcome of the thoracotomy was encouragingand as one of his first acts on resuming full sovereignly duties the King conferred the KCVO upon Price Thomas at Buckingham Palace on 14 December 1951. Sadly the King never fully recovered after the operation and died at Sandringham on 6 February 1952.

No problem, Price Thomas got his KCVO, the King prioritised that before dying two months after Clement bagged his K from a grateful but not very healthy King.

Westminster Hospital of the Trafficking Abses and Their Mates really dined out on their Clement having performed that operation on the King. I would imagine that the Westminster became untouchable after 1951  because of Clement. If no-one would accept a complaint about Gwynne, they were certainly not going to accept anything less than fawning praise for the hospital which numbered Clement on their staff.

I keep wondering why no-one noticed that the King didn’t sort of live for very long after Clement had got going on that lung. If I’d added to a King’s demise I would expect to have some explaining to do. Or didn’t it matter because that particular King was always seen as being a bit substandard, what with being left-handed and having the temerity to have a stammer?

Oh well, at least when that left-handed stammering King was out of the way, the path was clear for a Glorious Succession:

 

As the 1950s advanced, Price Thomas chose to leave specialist thoracic work to a new generation of surgeons but continued to practice general surgery until the turn of the 1960s. Throughout his career he was universally recognised by medical students, surgical trainees and his more senior colleagues as a fine teacher…

And of course as ‘That surgeon who operated on the King’.

Enjoying the affection of his colleagues as he did it was hardly surprising that his services were in great demand among a wide range of professional and academic bodies.

Don’t mention the King. I might have mentioned him once or twice but I think I’ve got away with it.

In relation to the Royal College of Surgeons of England he served as an examiner between 1948 and 1952, as a member of the College Council from 1952 to 1964, acting as its vice-president between 1962 and 1964…

Anyone remember that patient of Clement’s, that um sort of King??

Among many honours that came his way were the presidencies of the British Medical Association, the Thoracic Society, the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, the Association of Surgeons, the World Medical Society, the Medical Protection Society and the Royal Society of Medicine. Honorary degrees were conferred on him by the universities of Wales, Belfast, Paris, Lisbon, Athens and Karachi.

Nothing to do with the KING of course. Anyway we Do It For The Poor as any fule kno.

An accolade which gave him as much pleasure as any in his later years was his election as President of the medical school where he had commenced his studies, the Welsh National School of Medicine, a position he held from 1958 to 1970.

That was because Clement retained his Welsh accent and his Welsh patriotism. It was NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING ELSE.

He came to meetings of the Council and to degree ceremonies and other events as often as he could and took an active interest in the affairs of the School. Indeed the Provost of the time, Alan Trevor Jones, noted in his diary not long after Price Thomas had started his presidency that he ‘is very interested, almost too interested in everything’. The fact was that, despite periods of indifferent health including a thoracotomy for a cancerous lung in 1964, his presidential years coincided with what a later Provost, Patrick Mounsey, characterised as ‘one of the most exciting and productive periods in the school’s development, the success of which owed much to his inspiringleadership, enthusiasm and wise guidance’. It was during the 1960s that plans to build a new state-of-the-art medical teaching centre came to fruition at Heath Park in the north of Cardiff, incorporating the University Hospital of Wales, a new dental school and hospital and also the Tenovus Institute for Cancer Research, the foundation stone for which he laid in 1965.

There was much malpractice and wrongdoing at the Welsh National School of Medicine for decades, a considerable amount of that arising from the institution concealing organised abuse, including that of Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang which was inextricably linked with George Thomas’s crimes. William Asscher was a malevolent presence at the institution for years, as was Kenneth Rawnsley. They were both key figures in the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Rawnsley was responsible for box ticking re psychiatric services in Wales and he was happy to tick the box that care and standards were good at Denbigh and that the institution was acceptable for training. While the abducted victims of a gang of sex offenders were imprisoned in a dungeon. See previous posts.

Rawnsley was appointed Chair of Psychological Medicine at Cardiff in 1966, the year that George Thomas was appointed Minister of State in the Welsh Office, under Secretary of State Lord Cledwyn, the Labour MP for Ynys Mon and a long-standing friend of famille Windbag as well as of Dafydd and Gwynne of course (see eg. post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’). Eric Hobsbawm had been a vocal supporter of the Windbag when the Windbag was Labour Leader. Rawnsley had previously been a leading light at Manchester University, in the ring there that was affiliated to Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang (see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’) and was oiled by people such as Lord Platt, Dorothy Emmett, the philosophy lecturer who knew Bertrand Russell and Isabel Emmett, the social anthropologist who was married to the Welsh Speaking Social Worker at Croesor… See post ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’

Rawnsley’s wife Dr Elinor Kapp was a child psychiatrist who worked in south Wales and was a founder member of one of the medical charidees established by George Thomas. See previous posts.

Earlier posts eg. ‘The Great Stink’ discussed how the flagship University Hospital in Cardiff was built after George Thomas, then reigning supreme at the Welsh Office, plundered the NHS budget that NHS economist Richard Crossman’s friend Brian Abel-Smith had allocated for the whole of Wales. The big Labour vote was in south Wales – George Thomas’s own constituency was a Cardiff one, as was Sunny Jim Callaghan’s – so although Abel-Smith had explicitly stated that hospitals in rural parts of Wales (such as the north…) were utterly sub-standard and should be rebuilt as a matter of priority, George Thomas took no notice and nicked the money to build the Best Hospital In Wales, in Cardiff. Thomas lived in a bungalow with his mum next to the University Hospital.

It was a symbiotic relationship: the Top Docs in Cardiff kept quiet about the serious organised crime of which George Thomas was a part, George Thomas got them a brand new hospital and medical school and concealed their incompetence, research fraud and wrongdoing.

I cannot remember the name of the Dean concerned, but in 1984, I met a woman on the medicine degree at Cardiff who told me that there were a number of reasons why she did not fulfil the criteria for entry to the medicine degree, but it was OK, she was a friend of the Dean, so she was offered a place. She was in her late 40s/early 50s and had worked as a clinical psychologist for many years, so she will have known a lot about George Thomas, Dafydd and Gwynne – which might have been the clincher re that place on the medicine degree even if she was mates with the Dean – and she wanted a Top Doc’s qualification to bag a specific very senior job, but I cannot remember what it was exactly… Chief Medical Officer for Wales probably, I must ask Mark Drakeford who she was.

Mark Drakeford is bound to know, what with him having spent so many years as a social work academic and then Prof of Social Work/Social Policy at Cardiff University, the institution which concealed the sex offending of George Thomas and Dafydd and Gwynne’s Gang and that ring operating in Dyfed, when Mark Drakeford worked as a social worker for Dyfed Social Services. That was before Mark worked as a social worker/probation officer in Ely, where the Baroness of Ely’s dad – the Rev Bob Morgan – and one of his clergyman colleagues knew George Thomas. The Rev Bob who, before he was ordained, worked as a social worker. See previous posts.

The Provost of the Welsh National School of Medicine Alun Trevor Jones has an entry in the Dictionary of Welsh Biography:

Trevor Jones was born in Pengam, Glamorgan 24 February 1901 and educated at Lewis School, Pengam where his father, Roger Williams Jones, was headmaster.

A number of people in public life in Wales, including politicians and Top Docs, went to Lewis School, Pengam, which David Lloyd George once called the Eton of the Valleys. The Windbag went to Lewis School, as did George Thomas’s mate Julian Hodge aka the Userer Of The Valleys, as well as Jonathan Evans the Tory politician, Philip Williams the Plaid politician and Thomas Jones the founder of Coleg Harlech, all of whom have been discussed on this blog. One old boy of Lewis School who has not been named in previous posts is Top Doc David Rocyn-Jones who was President of the Welsh Rugby Union.

He undertook his preclinical medical training at the University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire. However, in 1921, rather than pursue his clinical training in Cardiff in order to obtain the medical degrees of the University of Wales – as he later observed, ‘an unnecessary exhibition of patriotism to those of us who were content with the easier and less arduous London Degree’ – he proceeded to University College Hospital, London, obtaining the MB BS Lond. in 1924.

After being a houseman to the distinguished Welsh physician, Sir Thomas Lewis, Trevor Jones held a series of hospital appointments in London and the provinces which equipped him to obtain the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians and the London MD in 1927 and the Diploma in Public Health in 1929. Between 1927 and 1929, as medical officer in charge of general medical beds and deputy superintendent at St Marylebone Infirmary, working under Dr Basil Hood, he acquired a particular interest in the minutiae of medical administration which never left him.

Trevor Jones thus held a senior Top Doc post in the Harley Street area of London. This would have provided him with valuable contacts when he was running the Welsh National School of Medicine full of staff facilitating serious organised crime, as well as giving Dafydd et al wonderful blackmailing opportunities.

In 1929, hoping eventually to obtain a position on the consultant staff of ahospital in Wales, Trevor Jones took the position of medical superintendent of the Swansea General Hospital where he combined clinical and administrative duties. After little more than a year he moved to Carmarthen to join a busy general practice headed by Dr Arwyn Davies, whose wife was Trevor Jones’s mother’s older sister. This position also allowed him to engage in hospital clinical and public health work – as medical officer ofhealth – in the town.

Previous posts have discussed the history of the ring in Carmarthenshire and some of those who grew up in Carmarthenshire/the wider West Wales region who facilitated or concealed the ring, including Lord Elwyn-Jones, Gwynfor Evans, Plaid’s first MP (Gwynfor was elected for Carmarthen in 1966, see previous posts) and Sir Alun Pugh, father of Bronwen who married Lord Bill Astor and found herself in the middle of the Profumo Affair. See previous posts. Geraint Morgan QC aka Cymro 007 and MP for Denbigh grew up in Carmarthenshire, as did Prof Eric Sunderland, Principal of UCNW, 1984-1995. Eric who was well-camouflaged yet was the main man who saved the Gang’s skin and ensured that Bangor University remained a safe haven from them and indeed remained open after the UGC wanted to close it down in the mid-1980s…

Thank God I and my friends were there to have our lives ruined! What other currency would Eric have had as Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer of the UGC advanced with his axe?? See previous posts.

Sir Henry Peter Francis Swinnerton-Dyer, 16th Baronet,(2 August 1927 – 26 December 2018) was a mathematician specialising in number theory at Cambridge University. As a mathematician Swinnerton-Dyer was best known for his part in the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture and for his work on the Titan operating system.

Swinnerton-Dyer was a mathematician of Trinity College, Cambridge. As was Bertrand Russell.

Number theory: There’s a lot of us and not many of Sally Baker and her friends.

 

By 1935 [Trevor Jones’s] medical experience was sufficiently varied for him to receive an invitation to apply for a post of medical officer in the Welsh Board of Health in Cardiff. He spent much of the first two years in this position evaluating projects to be undertaken in the depressed areas of south Wales which both alleviated unemployment and improved health facilities. In 1937, under the government’s Emergency Medical Services Scheme to plan for the impact of approaching war, he was appointed Hospital Officer for Wales, the only Hospital Officer of any region in England, Scotland or Wales to survive in post from first appointment in 1937 until the end of the ‘emergency’ in 1947. Trevor Jones’s initial priority was to review Wales’s health-care facilities and ensure that they were fit to deal with air-raid casualties, displaced civilians and the other health-related consequences of war.

They weren’t fit to do anything other than facilitate sexual exploitation and assault.

However, as the government began to plan for the post-war introduction of a national health service Trevor Jones, Professor J. A. Nixon (University of Bristol) and Professor Ralph Picken (Welsh National School of Medicine) undertook a fundamental review, published in 1945 as Survey of Hospital Services of South Wales, which would have a major impact on the pattern of hospital services in the principality, emphasising in particular the need for a large new medical teaching centre in Cardiff.

George Thomas was elected as the Labour MP for Cardiff Central in 1945, so they were going to be OK…

Appointed in 1947 as Senior Administrative Medical Officer of the new Welsh Regional Hospital Board, he played a key role in the implementation of the National Health Service Act in Wales.

The Welsh Regional Hospital Board! The Guilty Party who ran Ely and tolerated appalling abuse and tolerated even more appalling abuse at Denbigh…

Recognising the vital importance for Wales of training more doctors – and dentists – and specialists of all kinds, he became increasingly interested in the work of the Welsh National School of Medicine and its leadership role in the future health service in Wales. When, in 1954, the opportunity arose to apply for the post of Provost, soon to become vacant, he seized it with confidence arguing at his interview (as he wrote in his diary) ‘that a Provost with general experience of all sides of medicine was able to contribute something to a school, which the teachers, with their very narrow interests, could not bring’. However, several months were to elapse before Trevor Jones was appointed, owing to the reservations of a few of the senior academics, notably Harold Scarborough, the professor of medicine, but in the event his time as provost, from 1955 to 1969 – the only Welsh-speaking provost in the School’s history – proved to be outstandingly successful.

Wales! Can you not learn from these many years of experience? You have a decades old serious problem in not being able to attract Top Docs and dentists to Wales. They won’t come because much of the country’s health and welfare sector has been dominated by a criminal gang of corrupt professional people, dating back to the late 19th century. Giving responsibility to a senior member of that Gang’s network for recruitment, education and training of healthcare professionals is not going to solve the problem! I know that if you give such a role to Alun Trevor Jones or Rawnsley or Asscher or Gwynne or Dafydd or Wood or Mark Drakeford, the Gang will benefit greatly but the NHS in Wales won’t. As Drakeford has now found out. So have the public in Wales. They have a dangerous NHS that is killing them and now no docs at all will work there, at least in the north.

A companionable man, he formed an excellent rapport with the staff and the medical students, many of whom he had personally interviewed for admission, and under his leadership the School flourished.

Well it did the Gang a lot of good, but the consequences were evident eventually. The Welsh National School of Medicine has been plunged into scandal after scandal since the 1980s and applications from students dropped off and so the answer was to bribe weaker applicants to apply, oh God here we go again, no-one wants to be a Doc in Wales so we’ll take the crap ones and pay them a fortune and not say anything when they kill their patients or embezzle NHS funds or shag children…

It was able to attract and retain academic staff of the highest calibre, some of them having strong personalities.

No, not really of ‘highest academic calibre’. For ‘strong personalities’, read ‘criminal or nuts or obnoxious or all three’. Kenneth Rawnsley, William Asscher, Roy Mottram…

Not the least among them was the formidable professor of pathology, Jethro Gough, whose overbearing manner not even the provost was able to control, according to Professor Archie Cochrane, himself not the easiest of colleagues.

Jethro:

The Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online tribute is rather more positive about Jethro:

Jethro Gough

b.29 December 1903 d.16 February 1979
BSc Wales(1924) MRCS LRCP(1926) MB BCh(1927) MD(1930) FRCPath(1963) FRCP*(1967)

Jethro Gough was born in Mountain Ash, Glamorgan, the son of Jabez Gough, a hay and corn merchant, and of Ellen Matilda, the daughter of Eli Mortina, a baker and shopkeeper. He went to school in Mountain Ash and then on to the University of Wales at Cardiff, and the Welsh National School of Medicine. He was one of the first group of students to qualify from the new clinical school. His student career was noteworthy for distinctions in physiology, pathology, obstetrics and gynaecology and for winning theAlfred Sheen prize and McLean medal.

He went to Manchester as demonstrator in pathology under Shaw Dunn, returning to Cardiff in 1929 as lecturer in pathology. He became senior lecturer in pathology under JB Duguid at Cardiff, and when Duguid moved to Newcastle in 1948 Gough succeeded him as professor.

Jethro Gough took a keen interest in the problems of clinical medicine, and in early years often joined senior teaching rounds. His interest in clinical pathology was responsible for the development of the excellent postgraduate training of clinical pathologists at Cardiff, as witnessed by the success of these consultants in Wales and many countries. He demanded a high standard of diagnostic histopathology. All this did not lessen his devotion to research and academic pathology.

During the 1939—1945 war, he remained in Cardiff, having the evacuated students of University College London under his care, and additional responsibilities in the blood transfusion service and in the control of infection in war wounds.

Between 1929 and 1939 he published a number of papers on various topics in clinical pathology; then in 1940 came the first of the series of brilliant papers on pneumoconiosis of coal workers, in the paper Pneumoconiosis in Coal Trimmers. With Mr Wentworth, a senior member of the technical staff, Gough developed the Gough-Wentworth large lung section technique now in world-wide use in the study of many organs. The method was described in 1949 and greatly advanced knowledge of pneumoconiosis and of manylungdisorders.

Why wasn’t Jethro’s opinion sought re the King and his tumour?

Gough’s work on coalworkers’ lung disorders led, in 1969, to his being invited to give evidence before the Committee on Labor and Public Welfare of the United States Senate, a distinction of which he was most proud. He was called to assist the State of West Virginia to establish legislation on compensation for coalminers. In Wales his work was especially recognized by the National Union of Mineworkers and many associated bodies, and by the establishment in 1974 of the Jethro Gough prize in pathology, to be awarded annually in his own medical school.

Jethro Gough was one of the founders of the Royal College of Pathology and was a council member and vice-president. He was responsible for the expansion of the Institute of Pathology in Cardiff and, until his retirement in 1969, was active in the planning of the new University Hospital of Wales.

A pal of George Thomas’s then.

He was particularly helpful to other research workers in the school, to the Pneumoconiosis Research Unit (MRC) at Llandough Hospital, and the Asthma Research Unit at St. Davids and Sully Hospitals.

These trailblazing units have been discussed in earlier posts. Much of the research produced by them was as much as a joke as David Lewis Davies’s ground breaking research on alcoholism on his sample of seven, most of whom were not alcoholics. Kenneth Rawnsley conducted some research in collaboration with the Unit at Llandough and concluded that the health of miners living and working in the poorest villages of the valleys was so much worse than that of non-miners living in the affluent area of the Vale of Glamorgan because of psychological differences in the attitudes of the two groups to health and well-being. Those bloody miners never stopped moaning and coughing and spluttering and they really bellyached when that coal tip fell on the school in Aberfan.

Anyone for Mindfulness and being at one with the breath and living in the moment? The social workers of Gwynedd found it so helpful that they all booked time off (paid) for regular Mindfulness retreats but their clients continued to kill themselves.

The only factor that saved the bacon of the numpties at the Pneumoconiosis MRC Unit at Llandough was of course their association with Prof Archie Cochrane, who became famous for promoting the use of rigorous scientific methodologies in clinical trials. Nonetheless, one of the numpties, Top Doc Prof Peter NAME, ended up with a Chair at Cardiff University and was touted as a World Leading Epidemiologist.

See previous posts for coverage of Rawnsley’s efforts at social anthropology as applied to medicine – Prof Ken studied the Mating Choices Of The Human Female at one point – and for the crowd at Llandough who were also involved in research fraud.

He took a practical interest in studies of pulmonary heart disease. His advice was sought by many European centres working in the field of pulmonary disorders, and he participated in a number of Ciba Foundation symposia.

The Ciba Foundation grew from a Big Pharma-founded series of Brainstorming sessions organised by Top Doc Sir Gordon Wolstenholme, which brought together some genuinely credible and even outstanding scientists with the biggest spivs that one could imagine. The Ciba Foundation grew and grew and did wonders for Wolstenholme’s career, but nothing very solid re science or medicine resulted. The grand building was the site of the Brainstorming, but the Brainstorming has stopped and the building now does weddings and civil partnerships. See previous posts.

Jethro Gough’s work was also his hobby, which perhaps was a pity for a man with such a sharp inquiring mind. He was survived by his wife, who gave him devoted care over a long period of failing health. They had two sons, one an academic physicist and the other a pathologist in Jethro’s own school, the University Hospital of Wales.

One AJ Thomas wrote these kind words about that bastard Jethro who tested the patience of everyone.

* Elected under the special by-law which provides for the election to the fellowship of “Persons holding a medical qualification, but not Members of the College, who have distinguished themselves in the practice of medicine, or in the pursuit of Medical or General Science or Literature..” 

There’s the get-out clause then, I wondered what the actual criteria used to justify the awarding of FRCP was to people who, even by the broadest definition, know nothing about and have made no contribution to the field of pathology.

Jethro is also the subject of an entry in the Dictionary of Welsh Biography, which provides a few more snippets:

Keen from the outset to pursue an academic career Gough’s first substantive appointment was as a demonstrator in the Department of Pathology at the Welsh National School of Medicine in the autumn of 1927. At this time there was growing tension between the authorities of the School and some of the clinicians at the Cardiff Royal Infirmary over the clinical teaching arrangements, and relations deteriorated to such an extent that clinical teaching ceased for the 1928/29 session, forcing a whole cohortof Cardiff students to complete their undergraduate training elsewhere.

Yet another example of the excellence and impeccable personal conduct that pervades medicine and always has.

Jethro Gough, like some other academic staff, found the situation uncongenial and he chose to take up a junior post at Manchester University. As he explained to the School Secretary in January 1929, ‘I deeply regret the circumstances which have led me to take this step, but I feel that I can make better progress elsewhere’. Fortunately for all concerned normal service at the School was soon restored and by the autumn of 1929 Gough was back in Cardiff having successfully applied for the post of assistant lecturer in his old department. The report of the selection committee to the School authorities could not have been warmer in its tone. ‘His work while on the staff of the pathology Department of this School was characterised by such originality and promise as to stamp him a man of outstanding merit and one who will go far; thus confirming the indications given by his brilliant undergraduate career’.

Jethro found out about something or someone then when he was working at Manchester University.

In 1930 he became the third person (after Daniel T. Davies and J. W. Tudor Thomas) to obtain the MD of the University of Wales, for his thesis on ‘Mitochondria’, and three years later his status was upgraded from assistant lecturer to lecturer in pathology.

During the 1930s Gough’s main research interests related to the metabolism of Vitamin C and the histology of brain tumours, but as his post mortem work brought him into constant contact with the health problems of the south Wales miners, he became increasingly interested, from the late 1930s, in the study of pulmonary pathology in general and coalworkers’pneumoconiosis in particular. The war years were extremely busy for the Department of Pathology. It took on substantially increased responsibilities, overseeing the development of new pathological laboratories in the main hospitals throughout Wales and providing suitable training for their staff. From 1944 the department also became responsible for the distribution of penicillin to hospitals in Wales and training hospital doctors and general practitioners in its use, particularly in the treatment of those wounded in battle.

Penicillin was also considered a real blessing because it was effective against syphilis. Accounts of Top Docs who worked in asylums during the 1940s and 50s often contain references to the high number of patients who were in the later stages of syphilis and in a dreadful state. It was greatly feared by Top Docs themselves because they knew what happened in such cases. Wilfred Abse instructed Dannie on the necessity of using condoms at all times when Dannie was in his teens, not to avoid causing unwanted pregnancies but to avoid syphilis. Dannie gloated in his autobiography at enjoying discovering that one of his commanding officers who Dannie loathed (Dannie was doing his National Service at the time and working as a TB doc) had once contracted VD and causing as much embarrassment to the officer as he could. Dannie with his pocket full of condoms to equip him for his many causal encounters with people who might have syphillis…

‘Ah they’re wonderful aren’t they, nothing ever shocks them and it’s all confidential anyway’. The St George’s tea room let alone the bar could often rival any teenagers’ get-together.

...During the 1930s it had been generally accepted that silica, encountered underground, was the cause of pneumoconiosis among workers in the coal industry. However, Gough’s studies…led him to conclude that it was coal dust rather than silica which caused pneumoconiosis among workers in the coal industry, a discovery which gained Gough an international reputation. Indeed, his work in relation tocoalworkers’ pneumoconiosis would prove to be the basis of workmen’s compensation legislation in Britain and abroad, especially in the United States, where he gave evidence to various bodies on the issue…The National Union of Mineworkers in Britain celebrated Gough’s pioneeringwork by establishing, in the Welsh National School of Medicine, the Jethro Gough Prize in Pathology in 1974 ‘in acknowledgement of the contribution made by Jethro Gough to the wellbeing of the miners of the world’.

Any putative contributions to the ‘wellbeing of miners’ would be politically very advantageous in south Wales. The wellbeing of the south Wales miners was of course generally scandalously neglected even after the end of the famous big pit explosions which killed numerous miners. Previous posts have discussed how the tip at Aberfan was known by local Labour Councillors and at least one Labour MP to be unstable and in danger of falling onto the village, but because of their fears that if this was made public, the pit would close, driving up unemployment, the danger that the tip represented to the village was concealed.

After the 1966 Aberfan disaster, the entire handling and investigation of the disaster was carefully stage-managed by Harold Wilson’s Gov’t, with advice taken from the same civil servants and lawyers who were colluding with the criminality of Dafydd and Gwynne. I have been told that many of them were still alive in 1984 and proffered their opinion on what to do with me after I refused to drop my complaint about Gwynne.

Forged documentation? Transfusion with blood known to be infected in the C&A Hospital in Bangor? Framed for criminal offences? Undercover surveillance, splicing of recordings of conversations between my friends and I in order to put a different slant on the matters under discussion? Interception of the Royal Mail re my post?

Even the compensation re those who lost children in Aberfan was rigged. People not only had to jump through hoops to prove that they had been genuinely emotionally attached to their dead children and weren’t just Lying To Get Compensation, but the compensation paid was derisory. The Mayor of Aberfan famously collected donations for the Aberfan Disaster Relief Fund the days after the tip fell on the school, but George Thomas as Secretary of State for Wales then demanded much of the money donated to pay for making the rest of the tips above Aberfan safe, because the NCB refused to fund it and so did the Labour Gov’t.

At the Aberfan Inquiry, Chaired by Lord Edmund-Davies, the blame for the catastrophe was placed publicly and firmly on Alf Robens, a Labour politician who was the Chairman of the NCB at the time. People felt that Someone had been Held To Account. Lord Robens remained as Chancellor of Surrey University, remained in public life and was later appointed to lead the Health and Safety Executive when it was established. Lord R became Babs’ Castle’s go-to man on Health and Safety.

A great deal of thought went into the managing of the Aberfan disaster, by the people who were ensuring that George Thomas could continue molesting without fear and that the Labour Party in south Wales and the coal industry didn’t implode as a result of Aberfan. It worked! No-one was prosecuted or even lost their jobs. No politician resigned and even George Thomas’s career wasn’t hindered after he plundered the Disaster Fund quite openly. Ah the Doctors they remained wonderful, Wales remained the land of song and of Nye. And Gwynne and Dafydd’s killing machine continued.

Some Interesting Facts about Lord Edmund-Davies:

The Lord Edmund-Davies
Lord Edmund Davies.jpg
Lord of Appeal in Ordinary
In office
1981 – 1 October 1974
Personal details
Born 15 July 1906
Mountain Ash, Glamorgan, Wales
Died 26 December 1992 (aged 86)

Herbert Edmund Edmund-Davies, Baron Edmund-Davies of Aberpennar, born Herbert Edmund Davies at Mountain Ash, was the third son of Morgan John Davies and Elizabeth Maud Edmunds. Davies was educated at Mountain Ash Grammar School. Jethro was born in and went to school in Mountain Ash; Jethro was three years older than Edmund-Davies.

Edmund-Davies studied at King’s College, London and Exeter College, Oxford. He was called to the Bar at Gray’s Inn, as was Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Sir William Mars-Jones. Edmund-Davies worked as examiner and lecturer at the LSE in 1930 and 1931. During WW II, he served in the Army Officers’ Emergency Reserve and in the  Royal Welsh Fusiliers. Edmund-Davies was Recorder of Merthyr Tydfil, 1942-44, of Swansea, 1944-53 and of Cardiff, 1953-58.

Between 1953 and 1964, Davies was Chairman of the Denbighshire Quarter Sessions.

In 1958, the year after Gwynne did whatever he did that caused a Gov’t reshuffle, Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate David Maxwell-Fyfe aka Dai Bananas the Lord Chancellor aka Lord Kilmuir appointed Edmund-Davies a High Court Judge of the Queen’s Bench Division (as Mr Justice Edmund Davies), a post that Edmund-Davies held until 1966. Davies’s name almost immediately attracted public attention when it fell to him to try a German named Guenther Podola, who had shot and killed a police sergeant; Podola was convicted of capital murder and hanged in November 1959. A reading of the details of the Podola case suggests that there was a miscarriage of justice with a supply of people who were willing to perjure themselves and the usual suspects only to happy not to notice this in their desire to hang that Pole, as detailed in previous posts.

Invested to the Privy Council in 1966, Edmund-Davies was a Lord Justice of Appeal (as Lord Justice Edmund Davies), 1966-74. In 1967 he was appointed by the then Secretary of State for Wales – Lord Cledwyn, the Windbags’ mate – as Chair of the Tribunal that inquired into the Aberfan Disaster. On 1 October 1974, Edmund-Davies was appointed a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary (a “Law Lord”) and was raised to the Peerage as Baron Edmund-Davies.

Following very severe problems with the recruitment and retention of police officers in England and Wales because of chronically low pay, which had by then fallen far behind the pay for comparable occupations, in August 1977 Edmund-Davies was appointed by Labour Home Secretary Merlyn Rees MP – another rock-solid ally of Dafydd and Gwynne, a man from south Wales who was the MP for a Leeds constituency; Merlyn Rees was a Director of Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council when Michael Beloff QC advised the Council to withhold and pulp the Jillings Report, Municipal Mutual also being the insurers of the North Wales Police (see previous posts) – to Chair a Commission of Inquiry into the negotiating machinery for police pay and conditions. Edmund-Davies’s terms of reference were enlarged in December 1977 to include the levels of pay. His report was published in July 1978 and recommended a substantial increase in pay for police officers – of the order of 45%.

Edmund-Davies’s recommendations were implemented in full in 1979 by Thatch’s incoming Gov’t and the essential elements of the Edmund-Davies pay regime have remained undisturbed ever since. The Edmund-Davies review has become a cornerstone for police pay and the Police Federation of England and Wales – the representative body for police officers up to and including the rank of Chief Inspector – has tenaciously held onto the Edmund-Davies regime.

The Police Federation supported former senior North Wales Police officer Gordon Anglesea throughout his long ordeal following the Wicked Lies told by former kids in care that he had sexually abused them in the 1970s. Gordon won a libel case in 1994 after these Wicked Allegations were broadcast and appeared in print. Gordon was awarded nearly £400k compensation.

Some weeks after Gordon won the case, Mark Humphrys, one of the people who had named Gordon and given evidence against him, was found dead, hanging from the stairwell in the block of flats in Wrexham where he lived.

Suicide. It was because Mark was upset that people didn’t believe his Wicked Lies.

See posts ‘Y Gwir Yn Erbyn Y Byd’ and ‘Y Gwir Yn Erbyn Y Byd – A Few Additional Comments’.

In 2016 Gordon Anglesea died in prison, just weeks after receiving a long sentence for the historical abuse of boys in care at Wrexham. At the time of his death, the Police Federation were supporting his plans to appeal and lawyers were giving their services pro bono. The Police Federation turned out in force at Gordon’s funeral to give Gordon a good send-off. See previous posts.

Gordon’s widow Sandra received Gordon’s police pension, in spite of him dying a convicted sex offender, because of an oversight on the part of Arfon Jones, the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales, who made an admin error that could not be rectified. As a young copper, Arfon used to chauffeur Gordon to the building where Gordon molested youngsters. Arfon’s Deputy as Police and Crime Commissioner is a former Gwynedd social worker who worked with the Gang for many years, including those when Gwynedd social workers were perjuring themselves in Court re me. See previous posts.

In 1981, Edmund-Davies retired as a Law Lord. From 1974 to 1985, he was Pro-Chancellor of the University of Wales. In 1984, when I encountered Gwynne and was subjected to threats, UCNW was a constituent college of the University of Wales. UCNW had been hosted that trafficking ring for the entire duration of Edmund-Davies’s term as Pro-Chancellor of the University of Wales. Not that things were running much more smoothly in the other constituent colleges of the University of Wales.

Edmund-Davies was President of the London Welsh Trust, which runs the London Welsh Centre, 1982-88, before Dafydd and Gwynne’s other mate Sir William Mars-Jones was President.

Anyone for Welsh Wimmin’s Aid?

In 1935, Edmund-Davies married Eurwen Williams-James. They had three daughters.

In 1948, when J. B. Duguid moved from Cardiff to take up the chair of pathology at the University of Durham,

An early exchange of Top Docs between the two big rings in Wales and the North East.

Jethro Gough was appointed in his place, becoming the first former student of the Welsh National School of Medicine to occupy one of its professorial chairs. In the same year his research credentials led to his appointment as a member of the Industrial Pulmonary Disease Committee of the Medical Research Council. In the years that followed he enhanced the standing of his department in other ways too. In collaboration with J. E. Wentworth, a senior member of his technical staff, he developed what came to be known as the Gough-Wentworth large lung section technique, a major advance in the study of pulmonary pathology, which again earned for the department a world-wide reputation. Indeed, the School’s annual report for 1949/50 proudly stated that ‘the work of the department on pathological aspects of pneumoconiosis and large section technique continues to attract wide interest and brought visitors during the year from many distant parts of the world’. During the 1952/53 session for instance the department welcomed visitors from Australia, Canada, South Africa, the United States, Norway, Rhodesia, New Zealand, Holland, India, New Guinea and Switzerland. Gough was equally in great demand as a speaker at overseas conferences during the post-war years, being a particularly regular visitor to Harvard and other universities in North America.

Miners continued to develop pneumoconiosis, including miners in south Wales, where Jethro he was wonderful.

His high standing in the profession and, indeed, his forceful personality, soon established Jethro Gough as a leading member of the School of Medicine, in the mid fifties being referred to by Provost Trevor Jones in his diaries as ‘a first-class fellow … achieving a reputation and also bringing credit to the Medical School’.

I thought that they all hated the bastard?

He served as Vice-Provost between 1954 and 1956 and was one of a small group of colleagues to whom Trevor Jones looked to for advice on matters relating to the development of the School.

Oh God, Jethro was appointed to one of the most senior roles in the Welsh National School of Medicine.

He was undoubtedly a major influence in the advance of his specialty in post-war Wales and was one of the founders of the College of Pathologists in 1962 (it was awarded a royal charter in 1970). Elected as a member of the Council of the College from 1963 to 1966 he served as one of its vice-presidents from 1966 to 1968 when he resigned due to ill health. In 1967 he was made an honorary fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of London

By use of the get-out clause

and two years later he finally retired from the Welsh National School of Medicine.

Not that anyone could sleep easily after that. Like so many others, Jethro was not going to go quietly.

In 1934 Jethro Gough had married Ann Thomas, a fellow pupil at Mountain Ash Grammar School and, a strong support during his professional career, she provided devoted care during his last years of failing health. After his death on 16 February 1979, he was cremated at Thornhill, Cardiff following a service conducted by the minister of Bethel Baptist chapel, Whitchurch where his wife was a member. They had two sons, one of whom followed in his father’s footsteps as a pathologist at the Welsh National School of Medicine.

Jethro’s son Dr John Gough, a pathologist at the Welsh National School of Medicine, does not have the internet presence of his dad. Perhaps Dr John Gough decided that it might be wiser to keep a low profile after the huge scandal in the Dept of Pathology at what used to be called the Welsh National School of Medicine some years ago. There was a huge rumpus, it seriously damaged the reputation of the institution and the ripples hit other universities in other countries… John Gough was there in the midst of the action.

Ah they’re wonderful!

Another formidable Professor, Roy Chubby Brown:

Re Archie Cochrane, he is famous, he was a rigorous scientist who promoted such an approach but sadly his colleagues – including Kenneth Rawnsley – didn’t follow Archie’s advice. Archie himself wasn’t as stupid as the rest of them and Archie must have known about the research fraud and molesting but he just ignored it all. Archie had links with the MRC and Maudsley, so anyone who worked with Archie was set up for life really, even if they were Of The Gang or indeed just hopeless. Having Worked With Archie was enough. Archie carried out a rigorous analysis that demonstrated a positive correlation between the number of Top Docs in a population and the mortality rate among younger people. In other words Archie showed that for some unknown reason, younger people were more likely to die if there were a higher number of Top Docs practicing. Archie was fascinated by this and did not keep it a secret, in fact he was quite worried by it. The rest of the world ignored it. No-one ever followed it up.

Could the detrimental effect exerted on young people by Top Docs in south Wales during those years have been related to those Docs running a trafficking ring targeting young people? I have long since been of the opinion that the best thing that young people in north Wales can do for their well-being is keep a very long distance indeed between them and a Top Doctor.

See previous posts for info re Archie Cochrane, his paradoxes and the numpties whom ended up working for him for a free lunch.

 

Cochrane acknowledged, however, in his book One Man’s Medicine, that Trevor Jones was ‘an exceptional medical administrator’ and, closely involved from the 1940s in the planning of the medical teaching centre concept in Cardiff, his priority as provost was to implement the plans. In the words of Owen Wade, at the time professor of therapeutics in Belfast, Trevor Jones was ‘just the right man’ to see the medical teaching centre project through to completion on its 53 acre site at Heath Park in the north of Cardiff.

Even that splendid new development in Cardiff that left the rest of Wales devoid of NHS facilities didn’t stop Gwynne. In fact it helped Gwynne considerably by giving him the official stamp of Welsh Excellence.

Anyone for Kincora in Belfast and a VIP paedophile ring linked to Wales?

First to be built was the Dental School and Hospital, opened by the Duke of Edinburgh in 1966.

Only the second best VIP could have done the job.

Construction of the 800-bedded University Hospital of Wales and medical school buildings commenced in the same year, the complex, integrating the functions of teaching, research and clinical care in a manner unparalleled in the United Kingdom at that time, being officially opened by the Queen in 1971.

The Biggest Name! While George Thomas molested and Gwynne lobotomised, but Lilibet knew about that…

By then Trevor Jones had retired as provost though he continued to serve on the main committees of the hospital for some years.

They do not go away. They daren’t, the whole lot of them would end up in prison if genuine new competent blood ever got a look in.

Among the accolades which gave him particular pleasure at the time of his retirement was the School’s decision to have his portrait painted by the popular Newport artist, Thomas Rathmell – it hangs in the School of Medicine’s main committee room at Heath Park. However, as he wrote in his diary, ‘the most gratifying thing of all was an Honorary LLD given to me by the University of Wales,when I was presented before the Court at Swansea with a very complimentary speech by Patrick Mounsey, who could not have been more generous to his predecessor’. During his speech Mounsey referred to Trevor Jones’s abiding belief in the essential role of the University in inculcating a spirit of independent thought and enquiry, as important for doctors as for anyone else.

Was that why the junior docs in Cardiff were livid that they were being ordered to provide sub-standard care to patients, particularly the women in labour in the University Hospital, that they KNEW was sub-standard, but was Hospital Policy? They had absolutely no clinical freedom at all. This is Hospital Policy, you are NOT to do anything else.

In his (limited) leisure time he himself took great pleasure in reading – Dickens and historical works – and he was an active member of the ‘Fortnightly’, a literary club in Cardiff made up mainly of academics and other professional people.

No chavs.

After one meeting he wrote in his diary: ‘A very good dinner and very good conversation, as one would expect from a crowd of this kind. I like it very much’.

My fellow white-collar criminals.

In 1931 he married Gwyneth Evans, and they had a son who became a consultant paediatrician and a daughter who became a nurse.

Bechod! Trevor and Gwyneth’s children even remembered their gender stereotypes.

‘Don’t ewe think I was handsome??’

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

He died on 10 June 1979 and, though a staunch Presbyterian throughout his life, he was buried in Gelligaer churchyard where his parents had gone before him.

Alun Trevor Jones’s Top Doc paediatrician son is Dr Roger Verrier Jones. Dr Roger has an internet presence. He was featured in a BBC News Wales online report of 19 Nov 2011 – think Operation Pallial!! – on the subject of University of Wales Hospital 40 Years On:

Four decades on, the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff has maintained its original vision, says the son of one of its founding fathers. Consultant paediatrician Dr Roger Verrier-Jones said UHW is the still the leader in medical training in Wales.

By that time many students from Wales were opting for Liverpool or London because there had been so much bad publicity re Cardiff.

He also believes it is among the best in the UK.

Roger wouldn’t dare discuss the parlous state of affairs; his dad was responsible and then Roger himself worked there in a senior role for years. Just look at what was happening in the NHS in Wales in 2011…

It is a Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research Centre of Excellence and earned a reputation in dermatology, haematology and nephrology.

Then why did that patient a few years ago have the wrong kidney extracted, the one functioning kidney, leaving them with no working kidney because the other one was wrecked?

Dr Verrier-Jones’ father, Alan Trevor Jones, was part of the team which helped make the hospital a reality. Plans for the flagship teaching hospital were first revealed in 1951, but it was not until 20 years later that it finally opened.

They had to wait for George Thomas to become Minister of State in the Welsh Office to divert most of the NHS budget in Wales into the Flagship.

Dr Verrier-Jones said: “It was one of the first hospitals to be built which was both a hospital and a medical school combined. In fact, it was originally going to be called the Medical Training Centre. Yes there was St Bartholomew’s and Guy’s hospitals but they had their medical school stuck on them.

If we’re going to be all Top Doctor about this, it is called ‘a long tradition and evolution’, as opposed to George Thomas bribing the electorate and buying the Top Docs’ silence.

The Heath was the first because it was designed specifically as a teaching hospital.”

As a bribe.

Dr Verrier-Jones, who is now retired, began his career at UHW in 1971.

When Lilibet rocked up to open the Flagship, when Gwynne was lobotomising, when George Thomas was molesting, when Tony Francis had just qualified and was working in south Wales for Rawnsley, when the children’s homes in north Wales were filling up, when the paediatrics service in Gwynedd was so dangerous that there was an arrangement between Top Docs that their own children would never be treated there, when medical students from Cardiff dreaded being sent on placement to Bangor and when junior docs in Cardiff told each other to never under any circumstances take a job in north Wales…

Dr Roger Verrier-Jones
Dr Roger Verrier-Jones was a consultant paediatrician at UHW and retired 10 years ago’
 
He said: “Over the years it’s developed as the primary teaching hospital in Wales. Yes, there’s a graduate training hospital in Swansea but UHW was – and still is – the main teaching hospital in Wales.” Dr Verrier-Jones believes the hospital will carry its legacy into the future. He said: “UHW is as good and anywhere where in the UK. I think the concept originally envisaged for treating patients; teaching students and doctors has been upheld.” Dr Verrier-Jones said his father would be proud of the hospital 40 years on. “I think he would be fascinated by its development because he was a visionary. “I would expect the only thing he would not like is the parking,” he added.

 

A guaranteed supply of kiddies for George Thomas and his mates, no questions asked!

By 2011, Brown and I had a few months previously published our first article in which we mentioned Denbigh and my presence there in 1986-87. We were very restrained re what we mentioned but it was enough to worry a few people who in the face of the usual Not Knowing obviously remembered that I had known quite a bit and furthermore they didn’t know exactly how much I knew… What they did know was that my lawyers had finally obtained my medical files.

See the source image

Dr Roger can also be found on the website of the Cardiff and Vale Health Board, giving a very similar interview, under the title ‘UHW Is A Family Affair For Paediatrician’.

See the source image

Dr Roger also stars on the website of Noah’s Ark, a Welsh children’s hospital charidee. Dr Roger wants your dosh:

Roger Verrier Jones is a retired doctor from Cardiff, where he worked from 1969 to 1999 as a consultant paediatrician.

Dr Roger graduated from Cardiff in the same year as Tony Francis! So like Tony Francis, Dr Roger was a med student when the Windbag was the President of the NUS at Cardiff!

On retirement he became a trustee of the Noah’s Ark Appeal. His medical training took place at Cambridge University, University College Hospital, London and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. When he was first appointed as a paediatrician he found himself looking after sick children in 6 different hospitals in Cardiff, and became convinced that a single children’s unit would ensure better care for the children and their parents. Years of frustration and delay followed but eventually, with the help of the Noah’s Ark Appeal, the Children’s Hospital for Wales built. 

George Thomas was not only a central figure in medical charidees in Cardiff, but he was also Patron of the NCH (National Children’s Home). On one occasion, Thatch, who was also involved with the NCH, gave a lecture in honour of George Thomas and his selfless work for children. Esther was in the audience and Thatch gave her a mention as well. But then George Thomas was a close friend of Thatch. See previous posts.

Now for the other Provost of the Welsh National School of Medicine, Patrick Mounsey. I’m glad to say that as usual, the Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online provides us with background on John Patrick David Mounsey:

b.1 February 1914 d.21 February 1999
MA Cantab(1940) MRCS LRCP(1944) MB BChir Lond(1945) MRCP(1948) MD(1950) FRCP(1962) Hon LLD Wales(1980)

Patrick Mounsey was provost of the Welsh National School of Medicine. He was educated at Eton where he captained the Oppidans and, as head of the school, was always proud to have introduced compulsory baths.

I know what the rationale behind that sometimes is if it is young people to be compulsory bathed. It’s the oldest trick in the book Patrick.

He went on to read classics at King’s College, Cambridge. Being a good artist and draughtsman he trained as an architect. He later decided to change course and qualified in medicine at the age of 30, attending King’s College Hospital Medical School in London.

As well as the Westminster Hospital, one of the Abses undertook some of their training at King’s College Hospital.

After a spell as a Sherbrook Research Fellow in cardiology at the London Hospital from 1951 to 1960,

Mounsey was at the London Hospital when those who later became Lords of the Ring were students and junior docs there, including William Asscher.

he moved to the Royal Postgraduate Medical School as a lecturer and consultant cardiologist. In 1962 he was promoted to senior lecturer and sub-dean.

RPMS is attached to Hammersmith. So Mounsey was one of Hugh Bentall’s team of cardiologists who perpetrated that big research fraud after which one of their colleagues was found dead in his room at Hammersmith… See post ‘Interesting Facts’. Hugh Bentall’s son Richard trained as a clin psychologist at UCNW when Dafydd’s influence dominated the Dept of Psychology and Richard married the daughter of  Eifion Jones, the Dean of Science at UCNW. Richard’s  wife’s first degree was in plant biology – she did that at UCNW in the early 1980s, when the Dept of Plant Biology was staffed by friends and relations of the Gang, including D.G.E. Wood’s wife – and then she trained as an Angel.

Now this is interesting. I was offered a place on the medicine degree at the Welsh National School of Medicine in 1984 and Prof Geoff Sagar, the Head of the Dept of Plant Biology wrote my reference. Geoff Sagar was also the PVC of UCNW and of course knew about the Gang and Gwynne, although I never raised the subject of Gwynne with him or any other member of staff in the Dept of Plant Biology. My post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’ mentioned that one of the members of Council at UCNW for years was a local obstetrician, OV Jones. Who would have been one of the key members of the Gang, facilitating sexual assault and exploitation, the unlawful conspiracy to deny all women in north Wales NHS abortions, thus forcing them into the hands of the dangerous private abortionist in Chester or have their babies abducted by Dafydd and the Gang etc…

I have received info that Sagar was part of the Cunning Plan to ensure that I was offered a place at the Welsh National School of Medicine lest my suspicions re unfair practices were raised, the Cunning Plan being a longer-term one.

Gwynne knew that I had that place. He mentioned it to me, straight off. I asked him who had given him the info, mentioning that not only was it a breach of confidence but this meeting was supposed to be to discuss my concerns re his previous conduct. He refused to tell me who told him that I had the place to do medicine so I asked Wood who told him. Wood yelled at me that he didn’t know. I said that I would make a formal complaint about that as well, because this was becoming increasingly outrageous as every day passed. Wood yelled ‘it’s not a breach of confidence’.

Yes it was Wood and you knew it. I had not discussed it with anyone except Brown and close friends. But then you were running a fucking trafficking ring, so what’s a breach of confidence between criminals?

In 1967 he moved with Sir John McMichael to the British Postgraduate Medical Federation and in 1969 he was appointed provost of the Welsh National School of Medicine in Cardiff.

1969: John Allen took out the lease on the building which became the Bryn Alyn Community in 1968. George Thomas was appointed Secretary of State for Wales in 1968 and Health and Social Services in Wales became the responsibility of the Welsh Office. What better than a Posh Old Etonian with dirt on/friendships with the Lords of The Ring in London to be installed as Provost at the Welsh National School of Medicine? Mounsey couldn’t stand accused of Welsh Windbaggery or being a sheep shagger or be the subject of the comment ‘They’re all related to each other and called Jones, that’s the problem’.

The appointment of such a thoroughbred Englishman to this post caused surprise and even some criticism. He soon confounded his critics by learning the Welsh language sufficiently well to conduct official ceremonies in that language.

Image result for bruce forsyth didn't he do well images

His early contributions to cardiology mainly concerned the nature of Ebstein’s malformation of the heart. He published seminal papers on this topic and served as assistant editor of the British Heart Journal.

His task in Wales was daunting. The move of the school of medicine to the then newly integrated University Hospital of Wales Medical Teaching Centre required him to delineate the respective areas of responsibility for the medical school and hospital. He accomplished this task with his great diplomatic skills.

Fings break…

As a somewhat distant and shy man with an outsize intellect and knowledge base, he was awe inspiring to his staff. But, once the barriers were overcome, there was a warm hearted man with a dry sense of humour who was generous not only in spirit but in deeds. His major areas of interest were music (he played in the Glyndebourne orchestra at the age of 14) and linguistics.

Ooh did he know Randy Andy Radford, the Prof of Linguistics at UCNW during the 1980s, who boasted of the undergrads whom he shagged, in particular on Newborough beach? There was a lot of concern over Radford’s Ugandan discussions when it became clear that there was a positive correlation between students who had been entertained at Newborough and those who received Firsts. The parents of one linguistics student complained after she suffered a breakdown. Tony Francis concealed Radford’s activities. Radford completed his degrees and postdoc work at Trinity College, Cambridge. See previous posts.

I expect that Patrick Mounsey knew David Crystal as well, another big name in linguistics. David Crystal was based at London University for many years but then Radford’s old Dept – Radford having departed by then – came up with an honorary Chair for David Crystal. David Crystal has recently been involved with Community Projects in Holyhead. See previous posts.

Upon retirement he was awarded an honorary doctorate in law by the University of Wales for his services to the University. He moved to Wotton under Edge, where he painted and gardened and rediscovered his tenor voice, joining the local church choir. He was married to Sallie (née King), who predeceased him in 1990. They had two children.

This post is so long already that I won’t follow up the junior Mounseys here. Readers might like to do that; they won’t be working in Macdonalds, not even Macs in Wooton-under-Edge.

The person who wrote these kind words about Patrick Mounsey was Sir William Asscher…

Patrick Mounsey died in April 1999. Ioan Bowen Rees died on 4 May 1999. George Thomas had died back in Sept 1997. So they were all nicely out of the way before the Waterhouse Report was published.

 

In 1925 Clement Price Thomas married Ethel Doris Ricks…they had two sons, one of whom, Martyn Price Thomas, became a consultant surgeon in south Wales. I wonder if Martyn knew who that clinical psychologist who was Friends With the Dean at the Welsh National School of Medicine was?

Clem and Dorrie, as they were affectionately known, were a devoted couple whose home in St John’s Wood was an hospitable place for a wide circle of friends and colleagues.

See the source image

See the source image

Sir Clement died on 19 March 1973 aged 79 and was buried in the grave of his parents in the New Bethel chapel cemetery, Mynyddislwyn, now in the County Borough of Caerphilly.

Here’s Ron, one time Labour MP for Caerphilly and Secretary of State for Wales but resigned after a moment of madness on Clapham Common with someone called Boogie. Ron entertained the nation once more a few years later when he went Looking For Badgers near Bristol (see eg. ‘The Cradle Of Filth’):

Rondavies1998.jpg

On 29 May 1973 a well-attended memorial service was held in Westminster Abbey.

The Royal College of Surgeons Plarr’s ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online has a tribute to Sir Clement. A few extracts:

Clement Price Thomas was born on 22 November 1893 at Abercam, Monmouthshire, where his father was a merchant…

Or a Grocer?

thoracic surgery which was to become the specialty in which he excelled, and which ultimately gained him world-wide recognition, as evidence by the numerous honorary degrees awarded by universities at home and abroad…

George VI in the uniform of a field marshal

Such clinical appointments constitute but one area of activity in his remarkable career, another of which included his contributions to many academic bodies…These honours came to him partly, of course, because of his capability as a leader, but also because of his innate modesty and natural good humour which endeared him to all who knew him well.

George VI in the uniform of a field marshal

In 1925 he married… he and Dorrie were a devoted couple whose warm friendship was enjoyed by Clem’s colleagues and acquaintances. They had two sons, one of whom became a Fellow of the College.

George VI in the uniform of a field marshal

In what little spare time he had he enjoyed a game of golf and was interested in photography and reading. Latterly he suffered from the lung disease for which he had treated so many patients, and which he bore for several years with exemplary courage and patience…

The Top Docs are usually saints when the are afflicted themselves, unlike the demanding, unreasonable, Angel-attacking patients. As Sir Clement fared rather better than his Royal patient after undergoing the same operation and lived decades longer in spite of his chain-smoking habit, perhaps Clement didn’t have that much to bear with exemplary courage and patience.

Letters to The Editor, Daily Torygraph, 12 Feb, 2002, in the fine tradition of Sir Herbert Gussett and Sir Bufton Tufton:

At the time of the operation, I was 23. Some days before it, I was given a specimen, taken by my father during a broncoscopy, to take to Dr Rawlinson, the pathologist at Brompton Hospital. The specimen was labelled with a pseudonym, such was the security, but I believe Dr Rawlinson was pretty certain who the patient was.

Someone might just have dropped a few clues.

His diagnosis confirmed that of my father.

Thank God for that, things could have been very difficult if it didn’t.

The removal of the lung took place in one of two operating theatres set up in adjoining rooms at the front of Buckingham Palace, in case of any unforeseen emergency. My father told me that it occurred to him almost at the last minute that the Changing of the Guard would take place just outside the windows when he was operating. The Guard was switched to St James’s Palace.

My father’s medical secretary took down his verbatim commentary on the operation, in which he was assisted by two of his registrars, Charles Drew and Peter Jones. After the operation, the diseased lung was examined and the tumour shown to be contained.

I feel that current opinion unjustly reflects on my father’s memory, implying that he failed in his efforts. His efforts, in the knowledge of the King’s circulatory problems, took some courage. The chance of his patient dying on the table was not a remote one. On the other hand, he knew a decision not to operate would inevitably result in the King eventually dying of cancer. As a result of my father’s skill, the King, though still weak, was able to enjoy a quiet life with his family and even go out shooting the day before he died – not something that a person dying of cancer would have been able to do.

Not something that someone in the very final stages of the illness which did allegedly kill the King would probably have been able to do either, so someone’s told a few porkies somewhere.

As a footnote, it might surprise many in today’s materialistic climate that my father refused to take any fee, regarding it a privilege to have been of service to his King.

From what I understand, Docs did not ever charge their Royal patients and I imagine that they still don’t. As Clement Price discovered, one doesn’t need to, the toadying and business that will come one’s way once one has had a Royal patient will keep one in clover until the day that one dies and one’s children can reap the benefit as well. Even if, as seems rather clear from the case of King George VI and his lung, that one’s patient did not fare very well and died not long afterwards. So many lies are told to so many people, including the Royal patient themselves, that people are not usually able to assess how effective the treatment was and if anyone does raise questions even years later, there’ll always be someone like Brian Price Thomas – Clement’s son, who was also a surgeon and spent his life dining out on his father’s status as that bloke who SUCESSFULLY operated upon the King – on hand to do the How Very Dare You bit.

Brian Price Thomas worked as a surgeon in south Wales but he wrote that letter after he had retired and gave his address as Cromer, Norfolk. My post ‘The Science Of Animal Behaviour’ discusses the ring in Norfolk with which so many known to Gwynne and Dafydd were involved, including Lord David Ennals and Lord Jim Prior.

Brian Price Thomas rushed to defend his father’s reputation shortly after the publication of the Waterhouse Report. John Allen had at the time served two prison sentences for sexual assault on boys. When Brian Price Thomas’s letter was published by the Daily Torygraph, the Editor was Max Hastings, who’s glorious biography as well as the biographies of his nearest and dearest are discussed in a previous post.

Sir Clement:

On Nov 28 2013, The Journal of Medical Biography published a research article online entitled ‘The King’s Anaesthetic’:

King George VI underwent an operation for pneumonectomy in September 1951. Part of the operation anaesthetic record has survived. With conjecture, on a typical scenario of a 55-year-old male undergoing pulmonary resection for carcinoma in the early 1950s and other facts in the public domain, the King’s anaesthetic has been reconstructed to give an approximation of the events that in the last few months of his life caused his speech to change from that achieved by his personal voice coach and recently portrayed on celluloid in the film ‘The King’s Speech’. The popularity and success of the film ‘The King’s Speech’ brought to mind that King George VI died of bronchogenic carcinoma, a result, not recognised at the time, of the cigarette smoking habit that is a prominent feature of the story in celluloid.

Author biography:

Dr ID Conacher MD, FRCP(Ed), FFARCS qualified MB ChB at St Andrews in 1971

St Andrew’s has trained a lot of Top Docs who consider themselves a bit posher that other Top Docs, including Robert Bluglass.

and obtained an MD by thesis at Dundee in 1989. His thesis was on the significance of the paravertebral space for relief of pain of thoracic surgical origin. For 30 years he worked at Freeman Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne, becoming Consultant Anaesthetist with a special interest in thoracic anaesthesia in 1980. He wrote widely for the next 25 years on aspects in the field, including on its history. The topic has continued to interest into retirement.

Dr Conacher was a colleague of Gwynne’s old mucker Lord John Walton. Walton died on 21 April 2016, so he was alive and kicking when all this slushy PR about the Top Docs who saved the life of the King who died not long after they had saved his life was planned and produced. Walton was one of those who knew that either a book or a blog on the subject of the mental health services was on the way from me.

 

A contribution to the Science Museum blog by Selina Hurley on 4 Nov 2016 (some three months after I began this blog) reads:

In the first episode of The Crown, a new Netflix drama series looking at the life of HM Queen Elizabeth, showed the George VI’s lung operation carried out by surgeon Sir Clement Price Thomas (1893-1973) on a Sunday morning, 23 September 1951. The news made headlines all over the world.

For The Crown, a group of practicing surgeons and theatre staff from Guys and St Thomas’ Trust came together to re-enact the operation in what is thought to be a television first.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful and such good sports as well.

For the operation in 1951, an operating theatre was set up within the private confines of Buckingham Palace, complete with staff from Westminster Hospital. The operating table used in the operation, made by the Genito-Urinary Manufacturing Company Limited, was gifted to the Science Museum in 1984

from Westminster and Roehampton Hospital and has a small plaque commemorating the operation:

“To record with gratitude the recovery of His Majesty King George VI from an operation performed by C. Price Thomas F.R.C.S., Anaesthetist Dr. Robert Machray, Assisted by Theatre Sisters Miss S. Minter and Miss V. Ream and Staff Nurses Miss A. Patterson and Miss H. Ross when this table together with all the necessary theatre equipment was lent by Westminster Hospital, 23rd September 1951”

This plaque got me interested on the lives of the staff after the operation.

Bechod, Angels who looked after the King who will now be old ladies… That’ll tug a few heart strings.

Long-time readers of this blog will remember Katie Dabin’s blog post which featured an interview with Sarah Minter, Senior Theatre Sister, who was present at the operation.

Clement Price Thomas is considered one of the pioneers of thoracic surgery. Legend has it that Price Thomas only agreed to operate on the King if he could treat the monarch like any other patient.

That’ll be why the King was not told of his own diagnosis. Presumably the King was told that there was a Zero Tolerance Policy in place re Violence and Aggression and if the King was Violent Towards Staff he would be prosecuted. After the operation the King was told lies about the success of the operation. The King’s initial complaint about matters with which he was unhappy was ignored. The King wrote two more letters which were acknowledged some weeks later with a reassurance that people were very sorry to hear that the King was unhappy with his care, that the safety and dignity of patients are everyone’s highest priority and that an investigation would be held. The eventual investigation revealed that all staff involved in the King’s care behaved in a professional manner at all times but if the King had any further concerns he was entitled to contact the Community Health Council. By the time that letter had been sent, the King had died, but not as the result of anything to do with his successful operation.

Charles Drew (1916-87) and Peter Jones (1917-84) assisted Price Thomas, closing up the King at the completion of the operation, following the patterns that echoed their normal operating practice. The surgeon in charge [Price Thomas] is said to have said “I haven’t stitched up a chest for 25 years and I’m not going to start practising today!”

Jones (1917-1984) spent three weeks living in Buckingham Palace, monitoring the King’s progress and went onto to follow his mentor in thoracic surgery. Drew went on to pioneer profound hypothermia for open heart surgery and we also have his equipment in the collections. In a profound twist of fate, Drew would perform the same operation on Price Thomas as Price Thomas performed on George VI.

With a rather better outcome that the King had experienced.

Cyrill Scurr, junior anaesthetist, was also present at the King’s operation and has recounted his experiences on the Anaesthesia Heritage Centre blog and also donated the ECG machine that was used to the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland.

Four nurses, Audrey Patterson, Hilda Ross, Vera Ream and Sarah Minter, assisted in the operation. A further four nurses did shifts during the King’s convalescence. Sister Janet Cleminsen and  Ruth Beswetherwick took the night shifts and Sister Doreen Pearce and Sister Kathleen Norman took the day shifts. They all found themselves named and pictured in the Illustrated London News in October 1951.

The George VI operating table is not the only royal item in the collection. We also have the operating table that was used to remove an abscess on Edward VII’s appendix in 1902, two days before the monarch’s coronation. The operation was carried out by Frederick Treves (1853-1923).

From royal births to hospital visits, our fascination with the medical treatment of royalty continues today.

It’s certainly shoved down our throats every time that the Royals or the Top Docs are in need of good PR.

 

Some of the other players in this drama:

Katie Dabin’s blog post (2 Oct 2013) told us that:

Katie Maggs, Curator of Medicine blogs on a rather special surgery performed at the Palace.

One of the amazing things about working at the Science Museum is the number of extraordinary people you get to meet who give a unique insight into our collections. A few days ago I made a trip to the South Coast to interview Sarah Minter – a retired nurse and spritely 96 year old. Not only has she lived through some incredible changes within medicine during her career, she played a vital role in a high-profile operation performed on this table displayed in our Health Matters Gallery – more than 60 years ago.

[Image omitted] Adjustable operating table by the Genito Urinary Manufacturing Co., London, 1950s. At the time this operating table was the latest model for chest surgery [shurely shome mishtake if it was made by the Genito-Urinary Manufacturing Co?- Ed]– multiple attachments helped to better position the patient during surgery. Image  credit: Science Museum.

In September 1951, Sarah – then Senior Theatre Sister at Westminster Hospitalwas about to go on holiday when Clement Price-Thomas (later Sir) a renowned Chest Surgeon came into her office. After carefully closing the door, he informed her that he had to perform a major chest operation on King George VIand at the Palace’s insistence the operation would take place at Buckingham Palace. Sarah was tasked with coordinating the equipment and nursing team that would be needed for the operation. Cancelling her holiday, Sarah set to work. Absolute secrecy was essential.

Medical treatment is of course completely confidential, particularly for Royal personages. Which is why the gynae records of a member of the Royal Family who had pissed The Firm off were being passed around the London hospitals to much sniggering in the late 1980s.

[Image omitted]. Sarah Minter and her fellow nursing team being thanked by Westminster’s Matron Lavina Young in 1951 for their role in the King’s operation. Sarah started training as a Probationer Nurse at Westminster Hospital in 1939, on a salary of £20.00 paid quarterly. Her responsibilities gradually expanded until she became Divisional Nursing Officer in the 1960s. She retired in 1977.

From sterilising to lighting apparatus – Sarah selected what equipment she could from Westminster’s surgical theatres including the operating table, in order to create a replica theatre inside the Palace. Part of the challenge was to ensure enough of the right surgical equipment remained at the hospital so that operations could continue uninterrupted by what was happening at the Palace.

I’m glad that Sarah remembered to get that bit in. It probably wasn’t true though, because we are also told that two operating theatres were set up at Buck House at the insistence of Clement lest disaster befall one of them, in the way that much high tech delivery equipment was installed in the Royal Residence before William’s birth, although in the even, Di gave birth in Lindo Wing, St Mary’s. Although unused, the gear in the Royal Residence was more impressive than that found on a lot of NHS labour wards. If Sarah had nabbed enough equipment to create two fully functioning operating theatres at Buck House, there won’t have been much left behind in the Westminster Hospital for the plebs. At the time, the Westminster Hospital won’t have had that many of the most expensive bits and pieces needed to construct a top of the range operating theatre.


Crowds awaiting news of King George VI’s operation outside Buckingham Palace, 1951. The King’s operation began around 10am on the 23rd September 1951. Sarah recalled the thrill of looking out at the crowds from a window in the Palace, as a press notice about the operation was posted to the gates. Image Credit: BBC.

King George VI recovered from the surgery but died later in Feb 1952.

From causes ENTIRELY UNRELATED to that successful operation from which the King made a full recovery although he was forever after in quite a bad way.

The operating table went back to the hospital into normal usage. Sarah received a signed photograph of the King and Queen thanking her for her part in the procedure. Her name is listed with the members of the surgical team on a stained glass window commemorating King George VI

Who did not die as a result of that operation or the condition for which the operation was performed. Let’s get that clear.

in the chapel of Westminster Hospital.

Speaking with Sarah, I gained a real sense of the professionalism shown by nurses like her and an insight into the conditions in which she was working and the operation which took place. 

Professionalism in the face of the rapidly expanding trafficking ring that was operating under Sarah’s nose at the Westminster Hospital and which was so notorious that traffickers from south Wales were enrolling as med students at the Westminster because they’d heard that’s where the action was.

Whilst proud of her part in such notable surgery, it was medical advances Sarah recalled – such as the first dialysis machine used at Westminster Hospital or the shift from being a voluntary to an NHS Hospital – that made more of an impact on her and the patients she cared for.

In private, discussions with Sarah re her work will have made it clear that what she remembered most was just how much the Top Docs at the Westminster were getting away with, but she’ll only have said that in the presence of people whom she’ll never have imagined would be in a position to publish such things one day. That’s how Brown and me got to heard about it all as teenagers, which is why the Gang took ‘evidence’ from some of those who told us re my dangerousness and insanity.

Cyril Frederick Scurr (1920–2012), the anaesthetist at the King’s successful op was Dean of the Royal College of Anaesthetics. Cyril is buried at St Andrew’s Church, Totteridge, London. Totteridge was where Vanessa Feltz grew up and the constituency MP was Reggie Maudling, bent Tory politician who was a Director of a business owned by John Poulson, himself a business associate of T. Dan Smith, the Mr Big of civic corruption in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, who’s empire stretched as far as Wandsworth and Southwark Councils. See previous posts.

Every Council with which T. Dan Smith did business deals was sending kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales. The Poulson-T. Dan Smith scandal resulted in T. Dan Smith and Andy Cunningham going to prison for a short while during the 1970s but their lives were soon back on track when they came out. The scandal was a big one but only a fraction of the crime involved was ever investigated. The trafficking ring was never mentioned. Andy Cunningham’s son Jack became a Labour MP for a constituency in Cumbria and at one point it looked as though Lord Jack Cunningham would become Leader of the Labour Party… See previous posts.

Willie Whitelaw worked very hard to ensure that Gwynne and Dafydd were never investigated yet alone arrested. Willie as Home Secretary was particularly enthusiastic about Young Thugs Receiving A Short Sharp Shock. Such as being repeatedly buggered by people known to Dafydd and Gwynne – and indeed Willie – and then murdered in Risley Remand Centre by the screws. Willie served as the visitor for UCNW at times when the Gang were most in need. See previous posts.

The only person who really came unstuck was Reggie Maudling, who back in 1962 had replaced Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate Selwyn Lloyd as Chancellor of the Exchequer when Macmillan kicked Dafydd and Gwynne’s mates out of the Cabinet in the Night of the Long Knives. A decade later Reggie had to resign as Heath’s Home Secretary after being named as a Director of one of Poulson’s companies, as was one of Reggie’s sons. Reggie was publicly disgraced, developed a serious alcohol problem with which the Experts could not help and died of kidney and liver problems in the care of Dafydd and Gwynne’s network at the Royal Free Hospital on 14 Feb 1979, while Mr Thrope was waiting to stand trial for conspiracy to murder and when Mary Wynch had been wrongfully arrested and imprisoned. See previous posts.

Jethro Gough Of Caring For Miners and the Welsh National School of Medicine died from his own long term failing ill health two days after Reggie.

Reggie’s son William was found dead at the bottom of a block of flats in north London in June 1999, seven months before the Waterhouse Report was published, but after Sir Ronnie had shown People Who Matter drafts. William had committed suicide by throwing himself off a balcony after years of drug addiction as a result of the Shame of his father’s disgrace. No-one had the slightest bit of evidence that those were the circumstances of William’s death, but it’s what a copper told a journo and that’s what appeared in the media.

Cyril’s BMJ Obituary:

Cyril Scurr, who has died aged 91, was a pioneering anaesthetist whose former colleagues and family have variously described as laconic, shy, and taciturn. He did not talk about his work or achievements, even refusing to discuss the time that he attended an operation at Buckingham Palace.

Scurr was working as an anaesthetist at Westminster Hospital when in 1951, together with senior anaesthetic and surgical colleagues, he set up an operating theatre in Buckingham Palace and performed a lung operation on King George VI. Scurr provided continuous electrocardiogram monitoring throughout the procedure, and the monitor is now on display in the museum of the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland. Scurr attended a reception at the palace and was awarded lieutenant of the royal Victorian order.

Scurr had two careers, as a practising anaesthetist, pioneering a scientific approach to his specialty, and as a medical politician. He was born in north London, studied at King’s College and Westminster Hospital …

Cyril Scurr’s obituary from ‘The Times’, July 25 2012:

Anaesthetist who set his discipline on a scientific basis and was influential in medical professional bodies:

Scurr: he was alert to the dangers that unfit doctors posed to their patients
Scurr: he was alert to the dangers that unfit doctors posed to their patients

Then explain this Cyril:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Cyril Scurr was one of the luminaries of modern anaesthesia. He was appointed in 1949 to the consultant staff of Westminster Hospital where he provoked new research and encouraged a scientific approach to a field hitherto considered an art with a purely empirical basis.

In September 1951, with his senior colleague Robert Machray, he attended King George VI for a lung operation by Sir Clement Price-Thomas, the surgery taking place in a drawing room at Buckingham Palace. Scurr provided continuous electrocardiographic monitoring…

An extensive detailed account of Cyril’s biography can be found on the website of the Anaesthesia Heritage Centre:

Dr Cyril Scurr qualified at Westminster Hospital at the age of just 21. He was pioneering in his use of new technologies and techniques, though rarely discussed his achievements. He later became Dean of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and the President of the AAGBI. In this except, Dr Scurr discusses his experience in the Royal Army Medical Corps during World War Two and what it was like to work on the troop ships heading out to the Middle East.

Cyril Scurr, AW.097, P22 Cyril
Dr Scurr as President of the AAGBI

In 1938, I got into Westminster Hospital in the old building… I was a first year clinical student. We had a great year you see, we had a most enjoyable year. It was like my first year at university… And everybody was having a great time in 1938, you know the hospital ball and all that sort of thing.

I couldn’t qualify until I was twenty-one. I could have qualified by passing the exams when I was twenty, but the GMC wouldn’t allow it and so I had to wait for another term…

When people are learning anaesthetics they sit in on and give a hand to someone who is actually giving the anaesthetic and then there’s a bit of a hand-over takes place. And they’ll stand over you while you’re doing all the manoeuvres if you take on another case. So I’d had quite a lot of really well-known people: with Sir Ivan Magill, he wasn’t a Sir then of course, with Geoffrey Organe… with Robert Machray who anaesthetised the King later, with Ronnie Borad and Michael Nosworthy. All very well known anaesthetists at that time.

I don’t think we knew [what was coming]. But we should have known because we’d had the Munich thing in the year 1938 when my brothers were evacuated down to Somerset and I was still up in London.

And of course when the Blitz came later, we did a lot of it, and resuscitation and so on. We all had to do fire-watching whether you were a medical student or not, but of course when the causalities came in one was often working through the night at Westminster.

I had one idyllic interval really and that was just after Christmas 1940. They were looking for student house surgeons at Salisbury which is a most delightful city as you know and I went down there for about six months…

Once I was called up I was out of hospital and into the Royal Army Medical Corps. I suppose the bombing and the casualties [were the major experiences], getting hands-on experience I suppose you might say were enormously valuable. When I went into the RAMC… they posted me to troop ships for which they were asking for men over the age of forty, so I realised that the higher command in the RAMC was a bunch of idiots in many respects.

There were two, four thousand on this troop ship which was The Batory, the famous Polish ship, four thousand troops going to Algiers. And the second medical officer was a very elderly psychiatrist who know nothing about anything except psychiatry, so I had to do it all myself. And I had to decided when we were in convoy what were the surgical emergencies that arose that I could or could not cope with. I thought I could cope with the odd appendix and things, but things that I had to cope with were mainly dental extractions which I’d had not training in at all, so that wasn’t much fun… 

Here come the Top Docs in their Battleship. Seek Out and Destroy!


IWM Batory

We had quite a good gang of other ranks to do all the hard work of cleaning and staging the thing, but I was the only doctor that could do anything. The old psychiatrist had seasickness all the time and he filled himself up with Luminal and wasn’t really of much use. The other thing is that being an American theatre of war, it was a dry ship and so there was no drink. And this was a great handicap and hardship to a lot of people on the ship I think. But coming back or course all was let loose, because we only had the ships staff of about half a dozen officers and drinks ad lib which was very nice…

I saw in the papers when I got back to my parents’ place that I’d come back through the worst hurricane in fifty years. And it used to cheer me up because the ship was so up and down that I reckon any torpedoes would go well underneath. It was really rough, it was absolutely frightening. Fortunately I wasn’t seasick, but we did lose one or two escort vessels. Coming back through Gibraltar I saw one afternoon at teatime, the sharp end of destroyer out of water as it was going down… You [didn’t] stop and pick up survivors… you were like a bat out of Hell… that was for the Royal Navy to deal with, not for the civilian ships.

We were behind the lines, but we took enormous numbers of casualties to treat. Again I was anaesthetising for a long time, and eventually I got graded as a specialist anaesthetist in the army when I was in Tunis. But the day I was graded I got diphtheria which we caught from soldiers with desert sores which were in fact caused by malignant diphtheria organisms. And so I was ill for two or three months, during which period they quite kindly posted me to Anzio beach-head which was a real Hell-hole, so I missed that by virtue of having diphtheria.

We had Pentothal, ether, we had Oxford vaporisers, we had a field service patent Boyle machine which was capable of giving gas, oxygen and ether, and we had spinals. We had a very poor selection of local anaesthetics, the RAMC was very bad on that, and of course the relaxants didn’t come in until really after the war. We didn’t have relaxants at any time during all the time I was working on battle casualties until 1945.

With hindsight, if we had had curare and so on it would have been much better than having to give deep ether anaesthesia for abdominal procedure… head injuries of course, they were the things that killed.

That’s why someone smashed Brown’s head against a pavement repeatedly.

[My prime role with the Indian army] was dealing with casualties. I was with an Indian surgeon and I was the anaesthetist… And I got posted to Greece because we had the British Army in Greece to try and keep the Communists out while they had their elections…

Reds under the bed and all that. Is Jeremy Corbyn sure that he wants to support this bunch of bastards under all circumstances simply because they have been given a degree in medicine?

I was five years altogether in the RAMC of which two years were after the war was over. By that time I was a specialist. I was a major specialist anaesthetist in the RAMC. You were pretty well guaranteed a job when you were demobbed from that situation and you got a thing called a supernumerary registrar’s job at £650 a year. I took the opportunity then to pass the DA because I hadn’t been able to sit any exams while I was abroad.

I wondered who was rash enough to agree that Dafydd should qualify.

Then I got a job back at Westminster as a registrar… but within a year there was a consultant post which I was appointed and I was there ever after until I retired.

Robert Machray… was a great thoracic anaesthetist who… eventually came to anaesthetise the King, and I went along with him which was another leg-up really that I received. [We] operated on the King in Buckingham Palace [and took] all the equipment there on a Sunday morning. All these things happen on a Sunday morning!

I anesthetised Attlee, on numerous occasions.. When he had a mortal illness he was distinguished by all the people in his brood, and they never said thank you for anything that you did for them. Never ever. He was a miserable character I thought. But I got a lot of the politicians. I anaesthetised for the cancer expert of the time, Sir Stanford Cade, eventually. And this is why we got Brendan Bracken and Attlee. Being at Westminster which was next to the Houses of Parliament, we got all the parliamentarians. For example, Lady Churchill I anaesthetised twice because she fell down and broke her hip more than once. She was a bit confused! When I used to go to see her she used to say “Hello Randolph”. I’m not sure that was the thing to do really.

Check out that celeb patient list. This is why politicians just will not say ‘no’ to a Top Doctor. Fings Break…

With the King, I sat with him while he was waking up from his anaesthetic until he came round and looked after him entirely on my own for about two or three hours. But he died before I saw him again. I was due to have had a private investiture and he died just about a year later. I think the most touching thing was that when we went to put him to sleep in the morning, he had all the Sunday papers around him and they all had grisly details of the operation that he was likely to have. They were all hazarding a guess that he’d got carcinoma of the lung. And I thought as he was a timid sort of person who I think was very apprehensive of the operation- more perhaps than most people- because he had a biblical quotation in his own hand on his bedside table, ‘Put your trust in the Lord’ and that sort of thing.

The Oxford Brookes archive holds Dr Cyril Scurr’s interview with Lady Wendy Ball: Part 2:

In the second part of this interview Dr Scurr focuses on his ‘political’ career and his role in the emergence and evolution of the specialty of anaesthesia. Encouraged by Geoffrey Organe he was elected onto the major organisations in British anaesthesia where he played an influential role. Dr Scurr discusses his work at the Faculty of Anaesthetists at the Royal College of Surgeons where he was on the board from 1961 to 1977, and served as dean from 1970 to 1973. He outlines debates about the way that anaesthesia should develop, the setting up of the Scottish committee to ensure better representation of Scots, and establishing reciprocal arrangements over anaesthetist qualifications with anglophone countries. Next, he speaks of his time with the Association of Anaesthetists, particularly his work with the epidemiologist Archie Cochrane to re-establish the inquiry into perioperative mortality associated with anaesthesia, which became an ongoing concern, and setting up the ‘sick doctor’ – a confidential service for talking about doctors deemed unfit to practice.

The ‘sick doctor’ service is a real laugh. The essence of the sick doctor service is to ignore doctors who are genuinely struggling with serious health problems but instead offer complete protection to dangerous doctors when their excesses can no longer be ignored or excused by the usual methods. Dafydd was a Sick Doctor, in that he suffered from a ‘nervous illness’ for which he consulted a ‘Doctor in England’. I have yet to find out who that was. Roger Gilliatt perhaps. The Sick Doctor service in north Wales was run by Dr Devakumar, one of the many Sick Doctors who worked at the Hergest Unit. Deva was on board with Dafydd and the Gang and was one of the self-styled ‘BMA psychiatrists’ who was happy to contribute to the evidence that I was insane and dangerous and should be sent to a high security hospital. See previous posts for details of the Sick Doctor that was/is Devakumar. Deva’s service failed to prevent the suicides and of a number of Sick Doctors in north Wales, including Tony Francis.

Following this Dr Scurr reflects on his work with other important organisations. He describes his work with the Joint Consultants Committee from 1979 to 1981 – while serving on this he helped set up the Professional Linguistic Assessment Board to examine anaesthetists wishing to practice in the UK on the basis of an overseas qualification, his role in establishing the European Academy of Anaesthesiology with Jean Lassner, and serving on the Health Service Board from 1977 to 1980. The discussion moves on to the influence of Dr Scurr’s strong religious faith on his work, and his main publications. At the end of the interview he reflects on a long and varied career and states that his ‘political’ work has had the more on-going effects. He talks about the future of anaesthesia and his hope for a reduction in post-operative pain.

Charles Edwin Drew (15 December 1916-31 May 1987) was the surgeon who assisted Clement Price Thomas with the King’s pneumonectomy in 1951. It was Charles who later performed the same operation on Clement himself, with so much better results than the poor old King experienced.

Drew conducted pioneering research on profound hypothermia in cardiac surgery and what came to be known as the ‘Drew technique’.

Drew died from throat cancer at the age of 70 in 1987, leaving his wife Maureen and two children. He outlived Gwynne and was always on hand to hold an umbrella.

Born in Lambeth on 15 December 1916, the eldest son of Edwin Frank Drew, an accountant and Eunice (née Lloyd-Davies), Drew started his education in Stockwell and went on to Westminster City School. During WW II Drew became a Top Doc in the RNVR in 1942, one year after he graduated. Drew completed his junior surgical posts at Westminster Hospital, where he also formed close associations with G T Mullalley and Sir Clement Price Thomas.

Upon removal of the King’s tumour, it was Drew and his colleague Peter Jones who closed the King’s chest, Clement being too grand for such a mundane task.

Drew was the first to use the technique of profound hypothermia in open heart surgery. The body temperature was lowered to such a point where cardiovascular arrest could just about be tolerated for the time necessary to carry out the heart operation. He continued to use this technique for the remaining 22 years of his surgical career.

Charles Drew will have known about the research fraud and crime at Hammersmith Hospital on the part of Hugh Bentall and his colleagues as discussed in my post ‘Interesting Facts’.

Drew was convinced that much of the high mortality in cardiac surgery was due to a problem with the oxygenator systems. He proved a technique, ‘the Drew technique’, which involved two concepts: to provide circulatory support without an artificial oxygenator, and to repair the heart under conditions of circulatory arrest. Converting an old billiard room on the 6th floor of Westminster Hospital into a research laboratory, Drew observed

“A small number of experiments was sufficient to show that, using simple apparatus, it is possible to induce profound hypothermia in a dog, followed by complete circulatory arrest for 30 minutes, and then to rewarm it with recovery.”

This became the basis of his ‘Drew technique’ in following cardiac operations. Success was recorded in cardiac operations with arrest lasting up to 45 minutes. He emphasised that cold was cardio-protective. Respiratory complications, so often seen when oxygenators were used, were not noted with the Drew technique.

Drew enjoyed sailing and water polo. He was also interested in croquet and football and he rowed for London University.

Charles Drew married Maureen Pittaway in 1950. She was a sister at Queen Alexandra Royal Naval Nursing Service. They had two children.

Extracts from the Royal College of Surgeon’s Plarr’s ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online:

Charles Edward Drew…secured an open scholarship in 1935 to King’s College, London, and Westminster Hospital Medical School… After graduating in 1941 and doing his first resident appointments he joined the Navy in 1942 as Surgeon-Lieutenant RNVR. The following year his ship was sunk in the Mediterranean whilst he was below deck tending the wounded and he escaped by swimming out through a porthole. He was eventually picked up and continued his service until the end of the war…

It’s an impressive story but can one believe anything at all that this lot say about themselves, each other or anyone else?

Drew then became… surgical chief assistant at the Brompton Hospital before appointment as consultant surgeon to the Westminster and St George’s Hospitals.

Why are we not surprised that Charles Drew ended up affiliated to St George’s?

It was in 1952, during the early years of his consultant life, that he assisted his senior colleague Sir Clement Price Thomas with the pneumonectomy operation on King George VI for lung carcinoma. 

Charles Drew was a highly original thinker who was occasionally out of step with his less enterprising colleagues. Although somewhat handicapped by doing too much of his early work in one of the smaller centres, he was the first to use profound hypothermia for open cardiac surgery and did many successful operations by this technique. He published important papers on the clinical use of hyperbaric oxygen and on heart transplantation and was appointed consultant in thoracic surgery to the Royal Navy, honorary consultant in thoracic surgery to the Army, and honorary consultant thoracic surgeon, King Edward VII Hospital, Midhurst.

Among the well-educated Empowered Service Users whom I knew in north Wales who’s previous careers were unknown by most of the uninterested staff, there was a man who had previously worked at Manchester University as a researcher in hyperbaric medicine. I first met him in the North Wales Hospital and I would come across him at intervals over the next 25 years. He was fluent in German, very able, had done amazing things, but he had severe manic depression that was never ever managed competently. This man had been a witness to a great deal of wrongdoing in the North Wales Hospital, in ‘the community’ and at Hergest. As with most Empowered Service Users he was rendered virtually invisible after he had been Cared For after two years or so and only I, the Hergest whistleblower and a few other people knew some of what this man knew. He’s dead now, he was found dead in his flat some 10 years ago. Heart failure brought on by the ‘side effects’ of medication.

The Hergest whistleblower raised concerns repeatedly that this man was so over-medicated that his life was at risk. The Hergest whistleblower documented his concerns. He was ignored.

The one Professional apart from the Hergest whistleblower who was very aware of what the now deceased Empowered Service User had witnessed was Dafydd. In 1986-87, when we were in Denbigh together, this man was, like me, one of the Empowered Service Users whom Dafydd told people that he would take a ‘special interest in’. A witness to crime, of course Dafydd would be taking a special interest in him.

One of the Top Docs who was responsible for the medication regime of the Empowered Service User when he died was the genocidal Dr Tony ‘Do Nothing’ Roberts. Do Nothing trained at Manchester University and then worked with Dafydd at Denbigh.

Philip Jones from Dolgellau. Cleverer than any of the fuckwits who gradually poisoned him with prescribed drugs. And of course Philip knew and remembered me from 1986/87, as well as Stephen Bagnall the former kid in care who died while in the care of Dafydd a few months after I left Denbigh. When people were trying to kill Brown’s brother after he had witnessed the state that Stephen was in when we went out to Denbigh with the camera. See post ‘Hey, Hey, DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’

At the Royal College of Surgeons he was Hunterian Professor in 1961, Price Thomas Medallist in 1962; member of the Court of Examiners from 1970 to 1976, and Tudor Edwards Lecturer in 1961. He also served on the editorial committee of the British journal of surgery…

Peter Henry Jones (1 March 1917-30 July 1984), was born in Monmouth and after assisting Clement Price Thomas to perform the pneumonectomy on King George VI, Jones remained professionally close to Price Thomas, pursuing a career in cardiothoracic surgery. The Royal College of Surgeons Plarr’s ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online:

Peter Henry Jones was born in Monmouth on 1 March 1917 and educated at Haberdashers’ Aske’s West Monmouth School in Pontypool. He studied medicine at the Westminster Hospital and qualified in 1939.

Peter Jones also studied at King’s College London before Westminster. Leo Abse, whose brothers studied at Westminster Hospital and knew Peter Jones, served as the Labour MP for Pontypool…

After house appointments at the Westminster Hospital he served in the RAMC from 1942 to 1946 as Regimental Medical Officer to a field artillery regiment in North Africa and Italy. He took part in the Salerno landing and the assault on Monte Cassino, being mentioned in despatches. Typically, he refused promotion in order to remain with his regiment, which he did for four years, and this selfless attitude was characteristic of him. On demobilisation he decided to train in surgery, and took his FRCS in 1948. Subsequently he went to the Brompton and Westminster Hospitals training in thoracic surgery under Sir Clement Price Thomas, whom he assisted with a thoracotomy on King George VI, spending three weeks living in Buckingham Palace. For this he was awarded the MVO. In 1955 he was appointed thoracic surgeon to Baguley and Davyhulme Hospitals and in 1960 to Manchester Royal Infirmary. The same year he spent six months with Dr Frank Gerbode at the Presbyterian Hospital in San Francisco learning the new techniques of open heart surgery. In 1962 he was invited to join the staff of the Westminster Hospital as thoracic surgeon, where he remained until his early retirement. He was made Hunterian Professor in 1958 giving his lecture on sleeve resection of the bronchus, and he was founder-member of Pete’s Club, a travelling thoracic surgical club, whose only rule was that “no member should report any case which reflects credit upon himself”. Pomposity and insincerity were abhorrent to him.

No need to even tell us that really, we can take it for granted.

He retired early because of coronary artery disease, and pursued his interests in fishing and antique clocks. He bore his final illness, which deprived him of his voice, with courage and humour, raising many laughs with sign language.

Not your usual selfish, miserable, demanding Patient Who Attacks Angels.

When he died on 30 July 1984 he was survived by his wife Monica, herself a doctor, and their son and daughter and four grandchildren.

Peter Jones pegged out as I refused to withdraw my complaint about Gwynne and advanced skulduggery was underway behind closed doors after Eric Sunderland’s arrival at UCNW as Principal…

The BMJ October 1984:

Mr P H Jones, formerly thoracic surgeon to Westminster Hospital, London, died on 30 July after a long illness…He…served with the first army in north Africa, took part in the Salerno landing in Italy, and spent three months at Monte Cassino. He was mentioned in dispatches. Although offered promotion and secondment for training as a graded surgeon, he refused because he thought it important for a unit to have continuity of medical care. He remained with the same unit for four years. This selfless attitude was characteristic of him.

Not a trace of greed or ruthless self-interest was ever detected at any point during his saintly existence and never even mild irritation towards anyone who spilt his pint.

…in 1963 he became the first thoracic surgeon to be appointed to the staff of Westminster Hospital: his predecessors in thoracic surgery had all been appointed as general surgeons. With Sir Clement Mr Jones was a pioneer in sleeve resection of the bronchus and he gave a Hunterian lecture on this subject. Most lecturers fill the allotted hour with as much material as can be mustered; his lecture was probably the shortest ever. This was typical of him, for he hated to be a bore...

So Peter Jones said the bare minimum, delivering the shortest lecture in the history of the world lest the audience fell asleep. Which was no doubt worthy of a Special Medal from the BMA itself but being so unselfish, Peter Jones would not have wanted such an honour and that was the sole reason for it never being offered.

BBC: On This Day 23 Sept 1951:

1951: King has lung operation

Crowds have gathered outside Buckingham Palace for news of King George VI following an operation to remove part of his lung.A bulletin on the King’s health posted on the gates of Buckingham Palace this afternoon said “anxiety must remain for some days” but “his immediate post-operative condition is satisfactory”.

The statement was signed by the five doctors who have attended the King and spent last night at the palace prior to the operation.

The decision to operate was taken on Friday after doctors noticed “structural changes” in the King’s lung, which were giving cause for concern.

Queen at the palace

Nurses moved into the palace on Friday night and oxygen cylinders and other medical equipment arrived during the day yesterday.

The operation began at around 1000 today (Sunday) and took most of the morning.

The Queen was at the palace and she was the first to hear from the doctors how the King had withstood the surgery.

News of the King’s condition was then telephoned to Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh at Clarence House and to Queen Mary and other members of the royal family at Marlborough House.

The King was apparently moved to the comfort of his own bedroom immediately after the operation. He is being attended by nursing staff round-the-clock.

The Princess and her husband spent more than an hour at the Palace this evening. Queen Mary had left after visiting for nearly an hour a little earlier.

Princess Margaret flew in from Scotland to join her parents. She drove direct to the palace from London Airport.

Prince Charles and Princess Anne are the only members of the royal family remaining at Balmoral.

The Prime Minister Clement Attlee, who had also flown back to London from Scotland, has been kept informed of the King’s progress at Number 10.

Special prayers are being said in churches throughout the country for the King’s recovery.

Crowds gathered outside the palace and filed passed the railings where the bulletin on the King’s health had been pinned. Police officers kept the crowd moving.

The King is recovering from the operation at Buckingham Palace



In Context

The King appointed five Counsellors of State, including the Queen and Princess Elizabeth to deal with matters requiring the Sovereign’s approval during his illness.But he never made a complete recovery and died in February 1952, when it was revealed he had been suffering from lung cancer.

He became King on the abdication of his elder brother, Edward VIII, to marry the divorcee Wallace Simpson.

George VI’s refusal to leave Buckingham Palace during the years of World War II won him the respect of the British people.

It is thought the traumatic times through which he led his country left him physically exhausted and contributed to his failing health and early death at the age of 56.

 

Re Gwynne and whatever he did in 1957 which so worried Harold Macmillan. Now that Phil the Greek is on his last legs – he’s 98, he’s had a good innings! – and Lilibet is talking about delegating her own duties, surely it is time for them to tell us What Gwynne Did In 1957, before the memory is lost to the world for ever. Come along Ma’am, solve the mystery for the nation! What Did Gwynne The Royal Lobotomist Do In 1957 that was worth someone’s while killing Lord Dennis Vosper in 1966, the Health Minister who stood down because of it?

Lastly, I’ll just remind readers of a short piece that was published in the ‘New Statesman’ on 8 May 2013, which recounted how appalled Dr Death and his wife Debbie were by Thatch’s attitude to people with mental illness when they discussed the matter with her many years ago. The ‘New Statesman’ published this the year after Tony Francis killed himself, while I was unlawfully detained in a psych hospital and as Operation Pallial was arresting old codgers who were alleged to have abused kids as members of the ring in north Wales that included Dr Death’s mates. Uncle Harry’s nephew was Leader of the Labour Party and thought that he was soon going to be PM. Readers will notice that at the end of the article, there is a little advert for Dr Death:

In the early 1970s, Margaret Thatcher invited a psychiatrist to dinner in the House of Commons. At the time, she held the position of Secretary of State for Education (during which time she removed free milk from all children over the age of seven). Another MP who had been a neurology and psychiatric registrar at St Thomas’s Hospital, David Owen, passed by in the corridors of the house and recognised the psychiatrist. After a little small talk, Mrs Thatcher invited David and his wife to join her for coffee. The couple accepted.

[Mrs Thatcher] was sufficiently concerned about a constituent’s worries over her teenage son’s health to bother, when she was exceptionally busy, to arrange to meet the doctor who was treating him. Yet it soon became apparent that she neither accepted nor wanted to understand that any adolescent could be depressed. For her, it was all due to a lack of personal drive, effort and will.

As the conversation went on, her voice grew firm. She refused to hear any argument that might suggest the boy was having difficulties – that the state of his mental health, might be taking its toll. Owen’s wife, usually chatty and engaged, fell silent. She was staggered by Thatcher’s incomprehension.

As we rose to leave, Thatcher, right in front of her, said to me: “Is your wife always so quiet?” I have never forgotten that conversation. It showed Thatcher conscientious to a fault yet insensitive to someone she perceived as a non-achiever. This became ever clearer over the years in her attitudes towards poverty, social problems and the ethos of organisations such as the NHS.
