Slaves, Perfect Slaves

I have noted in previous posts and comments that while Dafydd and Lucille’s gang operated out of Gwynedd County Council, the constituency of Caernarfon – the town which housed the offices of Gwynedd County Council, including the offices of Lucille, her henchmen and the crooked Gwynedd County Council lawyer Ron Evans – was one of the safest Parliamentary seats in the UK. From 1974, Dafydd Wigley was elected for Plaid again and again with huge majorities, which actually increased as the trafficking gang expanded. This, in the face of a wrecked local economy, where the only well-paid secure employment available was with the North Wales Police; Gwynedd County Council in some capacity; the NHS; UCNW (Bangor University); the Normal College Bangor; or the local FE institutions. All of these institutions were fully on board with Dafydd’s gang. Everybody else was in casual, very low paid work, frequently on one of the many laughable Gov’t ‘job creation’ schemes. Failing that, one could work in the children’s homes, care homes or charidees which were all part of Dafydd’s empire. Geddit???

I used to know someone who was a Labour Party activist in Gwynedd but who gave up with that particular past-time after becoming completely disillusioned with the fuckwittery and corruption of the local Labour Party, particularly in the form of one Betty Williams. This person was deeply involved with Gwynedd politics in the 1980s and they told me that Labour supporters at one of the counts (I think it must have been at the 1983 General Election) had to get the hell out of the hall because ‘Wigley’s lot’ were intent on physical violence and damage to Labour activists was feared. When I was told this some years ago, my response was ‘surely not?’ I was very firmly reassured ‘yes, they were nasty, intimidating and notorious’. So I responded with ‘Wigley couldn’t have known what they were doing’, only to be told that Wigley could not have missed what they were doing…

Rather like the paedophile gang that operated under Lord Wigley’s nose of which he knew nuzzing (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’), despite the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council Ioan Bowen Rees – Lucille Hughes was his Director of Social Services – being one of Wigley’s advisers. Ioan had previously been the County Secretary for Dyfed County Council, where there had been a paedophile gang in operation with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ Ioan had also served as an adviser to Gwynfor Evans, the first Plaid MP to be elected, who was the MP for Carmarthen, 1966-70. When Dyfed County Council was formed in 1974, Carmarthen was the main administrative centre for that Council. Gwynfor Evans is really rated by many people, because of his pacifist beliefs and his threat to starve himself to death unless a fourth Welsh language TV channel was launched. Gwynfor knew about the paedophile gang and although he did threaten to fast to his death, the real muscle behind the creation of S4C was a contingent of campaigners who discreetly reminded Thatch of what her Gov’t was concealing in terms of Dafydd, Peter Morrison etc. See previous posts.

I know many people who support Plaid who are nothing to do with Dr Dafydd Alun Jones and his gang, but many members of Dafydd’s gang were actively involved with Plaid, including of course Dafydd himself. I probably should not have been so sceptical when I was told about ‘Wigley’s lot’ by that Labour activist; after all, my own experience for years as an Empowered Service User was to be constantly told that ‘doctors, nurses and social workers would never behave as you allege’. They did. They weren’t supposed to, but they were running a trafficking gang and they were a bunch of monsters. Presumably it was they and their associates who were some of ‘Wigley’s lot’ who put the fear of God into the Labour activists on election nights in the 1980s.

After noticing how safe Dafydd Wigley’s job was, I took a quick look at some other constituencies in Wales which housed the local HQs of the networked trafficking gangs. They too were very safe seats. The constituencies in nearby areas, with electorates which were deeply affected by the trafficking gangs but not 100% dependent upon their activities, were in contrast often highly marginal seats and the centre of a bun fight at every election, with all candidates scrabbling for votes so no-one dared upset any potential voter, including voters who were colluding with serious crime…

No wonder Dafydd did what he bloody well wanted.

 

In 1982, Merfyn Jones published his book ‘The North Wales Quarrymen, 1874-1922’. During the period of time with which that book is concerned, the Liberal Party politically dominated north west Wales; David Lloyd George was of course the MP for Caernarvon Boroughs, 1890-1945.

Welsh Wizard? Or Randy Old Goat?

 

However, Merfyn argues that the Liberals were economically impotent in comparison to the wealthy Tory landlords of what is now Gwynedd and the Liberals’ strategy was therefore to seize the political levers of power through the ballot box and thus undermine the authority of the landlord class. In order to win the battle, ‘an anti-Tory alliance of professional men, Ministers of religion, tenant farmers and workers’ was needed and indeed was constructed. The alliance was not automatic; it needed to be fought for and enforced. Merfyn maintains that the prime example of this process was in the case of the Penrhyn quarrymen of Bethesda.

When detailing the history of the formation of the quarrymen’s trade union in North Wales, Merfyn described in considerable detail the iron grip that Lord Penrhyn, the owner of Penrhyn Quarry at Bethesda, exerted over his quarrymen, including their political activities:

‘By the last quarter of the nineteenth century the slate quarrying areas were a bastion both of the Welsh language and also of a Welsh culture dominated by nonconformity and Liberalism. But until 1874 the Penrhyn quarrymen were also firmly controlled politically by Penrhyn Castle; those who admitted their radicalism could expect very short shrift. In 1865 the Cymdeithas Undebol Chwarelwyr Cymru had been meekly dissolved when Penrhyn had declared that he would not tolerate any attempt “to form a species of Trade Union among the quarrymen”, and that any such attempt would force him to close the quarry, and he “would only reopen it and his cottages to those men who declare themselves averse to any such scheme”.

The effectiveness of Penrhyn’s control over the men was again demonstrated in the 1868 general election…the hold of the Penrhyn family over the Caernarfonshire parliamentary seat was challenged and broken by a Liberal, Thomas Love Jones-Parry. He won the seat with 1,963 votes against the 1,815 votes of Lord Penrhyn’s son, George Sholto Douglas Pennant. In Bangor and Bethesda, however, areas under direct Penrhyn influence, Pennant had a majority. In Bethesda the number of Liberal votes was particularly small, 47 out of 359, and this despite the enthusiastic pro-Jones-Parry meetings held in the town before the election.

Those brave enough to be public Liberals in Penrhyn’s domain were soon made to pay the price…Penrhyn sacked and intimidated many prominent Liberals. In 1870 he purged his quarries of agitators, dismissing “over 80 quarrymen, most of them among the best men in the quarry in character and work…without any reason being given”.

Condemned by the Welsh press, this action was accepted by the Penrhyn quarrymen, who held an apparently well-attended meeting in June 1870 to “protest against the slur cast upon the respected stewards and generous and kind proprietor”. They resented especially the words of a local radical columnist who had castigated them as “white slaves”. On the contrary, the men protested, the sackings had been perfectly justified by the downward turn in the slate trade and even one of the dismissed men maintained that this was so and that he was no radical and had helped with the plans for a union (in 1865) against his own will. Such was Penrhyn’s power.

In 1874 Pennant comfortably regained his seat…the fear of victimisation and a genuine sense of obligation toward their master demanded a vote, not necessarily for Toryism, but for the pennant family…Even prominent nonconformist figures…and a host of deacons sat on Penrhyn’s platform and spoke on his behalf.

The Liberal Welsh press were furious and lashed out at the subservience of the quarrymen. The perceptive ‘Herald Cymraeg’ columnist on Bethesda affairs, wrote: Does Wales know I wonder, that the workers of Chwarel y Cae are slaves, perfect slaves? Ever since the election of 1868 they slip further every year into the hold of servility, until most of them have by now lost the last grain of independence…they will have to be squeezed almost to death before they will shout.’

 

A few observations:

Numerous female staff at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh admitted that they hated Dafydd and his behaviour around women – including them – was gross, but ‘you can tell him that if you want, I’m not going to’.

When I asked Jeff Crowther, the nursing officer/manager at Ysbyty Gwynedd, why none of them would stand up to Dafydd, he replied ‘because we’ve got jobs to keep and mortgages to pay’ and walked off.

Ella Fisk, the Angel who ran the day centre at the Hergest Unit, told me that she felt uncomfortable around Dafydd, that she would never wish to be alone with him, that he was creepy and that she had ‘heard rumours’, but that ‘isn’t evidence’. According to Ella, I didn’t have ‘evidence’ either, because Dafydd ‘had never touched me’. No Ella, because I stopped him!!! Having stopped him in the way that so many other patients did not feel able to, I was then told that I had no evidence.

The ‘Independent Advocacy Association’ which represented psych patients in north Wales told their staff not to support patients or relatives making serious complaints against the mental health services because the NHS funded the Independent Advocacy Association. Some of the complaints concerned deaths.

The Chairman of the IAA was Les Cluclus, a Hergest patient who doubled up as the Service Users’ rep. Cluclus was not democratically elected to any position; he was appointed, but by whom I never discovered. He was dependent upon the Hergest Unit for his care and his benefits. He told all of us that he ‘didn’t handle complaints about staff’. Cluclus attended a Service Users conference and told the assembled company that his job was to ‘do what the NHS wants’. One of the more competent advocates – who was new to north Wales – challenged him. The next week she was dismissed from her role at the IAA.

By 2002, the IAA had been commissioned by the North Wales Police to fulfil the role of the ‘responsible adult’ when vulnerable people were arrested and questioned. So when the Hergest Unit had the patients arrested, the ‘responsible adult’ with the remit to defend the accused’s interests was a member of the IAA. No-one was informed when this bunch of clowns were given that remit. I only found out about it when the Hergest Unit had me arrested and the biggest twat from the IAA that there was walked into the interview room, telling me that he was the ‘responsible adult’. I told him that I was a responsible adult myself and he could piss off. The policeman told me that the idiot from the IAA ‘has to be present’. I explained the law to the policeman who either didn’t know it or thought that I didn’t and I once more told the twat from the IAA to leave. At which point he did.

A secretary of Keith Thomson, the Chief Exec of the North West Wales NHS Trust, stated that he ‘ruled by fear’ and that she hated him but would ‘I would never dare say anything’. An Ysbyty Gwynedd receptionist stated that Martin Jones, Keith’s successor, was ‘alright if you reported something in another dept but you’d be sacked if you reported something in your own dept’. A highly effective method of encouraging ratting but not genuine whistleblowing Martin!

At an event at Bangor University in 2005 or thereabouts, I got chatting to a young woman who asked me if I knew if there were any jobs suitable for Welsh language graduates going in the admin depts at Bangor University. It transpired that she had been working for Gwynedd County Council, but according to her, the ‘bullying there is awful’ and if you’re not part of ‘Dafydd Iwan’s lot’ you’ve had it. She had spent the last few weeks off sick with ‘stress’ and was desperate to find another job. I subsequently met two other people – but young men – in exactly the same position, who were trying to escape the yoke of Gwynedd County Council by becoming teachers of Welsh for adults.

Sir Ronald Waterhouse stated that John Allen ‘only’ sexually abused the children in his care and that there was only evidence of him ‘occasionally’ using violence. Ronnie stated that John Allen was a kind and generous man to the boys, as evidenced by Allen giving some of them thousands of pounds and expensive gifts, such as motorbikes. When Ronnie was told that the other kids called the boys receiving such largesse ‘Allen’s bum boys’, Ronnie remarked that young people often use such language about each other, it means nothing.

  • Bryn Alyn | PRESS GANG

 

Ronnie accepted the explanation of social worker Mari Roberts that she was ‘just being playful’ when she tried to suffocate one boy.

After the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal finally broke, one unidentified social worker was interviewed and remarked that she was desperate to get away from the area, but ‘who ever would employ me? I’ve worked for Clwyd.’

I could continue…

Slaves, Perfect Slaves.

It was by such a process that in 1983, a university lecturer at UCNW was told by an undergrad that her boyfriend was receiving murder threats, only for her to be completely ignored. I wasn’t the only undergrad who told Adrian Bell that some horrific things were happening to me either…

‘We didn’t know.’

‘Brain tumour? Well all the referrals from north Wales go to The Walton Centre. Now don’t you worry my dear, we’ll look after you!’ ‘Ooh. Er, I think I know who this patient is.’ ‘No effective treatment available for this I’m afraid! Just exercising our Clinical Judgement! Bechod…’

We’re the paedophiles’ friends and you can’t get us.

My how things haven’t changed.

Slaves, Perfect Slaves. Or in some cases ‘spineless fucking idiots’.

Yma O Hyd!

Dafydd Iwan

 

After Alison Taylor blew the whistle on the abuse of children in care in north Wales, she never worked as a social worker again.

 

Now let us look at a few of those safe seats in detail to illustrate my point.

 

Caernarfon.

From 1950 to Feb 1974, Caernarfon was led by the Labour MP, Goronwy Roberts, later Lord Goronwy-Roberts.

Roberts was from Bethesda, where his father was a deacon of the Presbyterian Church of Wales. He was educated at Ogwen Grammar School, Bethesda and UCNW (Bangor University). Later he attended London University. While at UCNW, Roberts, together with Harri Gwynn, was one of the founders of Mudiad Gwerin, a nationalist left-wing pressure group.

Roberts served in the British Army, 1940-41 and in the TA until 1944. From 1941 until 1944 he worked as Youth Education Officer for Caernarfonshire and in 1944 was appointed lecturer in youth leadership at what is now Swansea University. So Goronwy Roberts was an early social worker.

Goronwy Roberts was elected Labour MP for Caernarvonshire in 1945, when he defeated the sitting Liberal MP Goronwy Owen, who had held the seat since 1923. Following boundary changes, he was elected to represent Caernarfon at the 1950 General Election, defeating the Liberal candidate by over 10,000 votes. He continued to represent the constituency until February 1974, when he lost his seat to Plaid’s Dafydd Wigley. Plaid have held the seat ever since.

During the 1950s, Roberts was, together with Cledwyn Hughes and others, a stalwart of the Parliament for Wales campaign. Lord Cledwyn was the MP for Anglesey, 1951-79 and a big mate of Glenys Kinnock’s parents. He was Secretary of State for Wales, 1966-68, where his Minister was the child molester George Thomas. Cledwyn Hughes was mates with all the Labour Party big wigs, particularly Jim Callaghan and Woy Jenkins and he provided a substantial boost to the Windbag’s political career. Lord Cledwyn colluded with organised abuse for decades, he was concealing it in the days of Gwynne the lobotomist before Dafydd entered the arena. See post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.

In 1951, Plaid Cymru announced that they would not oppose Goronwy Roberts at the General Election due to his support for the Parliament for Wales campaign . Eventually, Goronwy Roberts presented the final petition to Parliament, bearing more than 250,000 signatures, in May 1956.

Goronwy was a Member of the Commons Panel of Chairmen, 1963-64 and served in Harold Wilson’s Gov’t. Goronwy was Minister of State at the Welsh Office, 1964–66, under the first Secretary of State for Wales, Jim Griffiths. The rot was built into the Welsh Office from its inception and Jim Griffiths set the standard, concealing abuse, neglect and corruption, although when he was Secretary of State the Welsh Office did not have responsibility for Health and Social Services. That followed very soon, when the child molester George Thomas became Secretary of State in 1968. Griffiths was President of the powerful South Wales Miners’ Federation – the Fed – and was the Labour MP for the safe seat of Llanelli, 1936-70. See post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’ for more background on Griffiths.

Goronwy Roberts was then Minister of State, Education and Science, 1966–67, Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, 1967-69, Minister of State for Trade, 1969-70. When Labour lost power in 1970, Roberts became an Opposition Spokesman on Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs.

On his defeat at the Feb 1974 General Election, Roberts was created a life peer. He returned to Government as junior Minister in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, 1974-75 and then as Minister of State in the FCO, 1975-79. Roberts was Deputy Leader of the Lords, 1975-79.

Roberts was a Member of the Court of Governors at what became Aberystwyth University and of the National Museum of Wales and was a member of the Fabian Society. He was appointed FRSA in 1968 and an Honorary Freeman of the Royal Borough of Caernarfon in 1972.

Goronwy Roberts, like Jim Griffiths, knew about the molesting of George Thomas and about the organised abuse in Wales upon which Dafydd later built and expanded. Roberts knew what was going on out at the North Wales Hospital when Gwynne was lobotomising people who complained of being abused. He was still the MP for Caernarfon when Dafydd began to build his empire and he was in the Lords when Dafydd and John Allen’s business began to boom in the 1970s. Goronwy didn’t die until 1981 and he remained silent throughout and about it all, including Harold Wilson’s strategy of building his career as PM on concealing crime and corruption in high and low places. Goronwy was in the Lords when Mary Wynch was unlawfully arrested, imprisoned in Risley and then in Denbigh by Dafydd. He will have known everyone involved in Mary’s case; he’ll have known the ring of crooked lawyers in the Caernarfon area of whom Mary complained who were in league with Dafydd and he will have known that the trafficking gang controlled UCNW, Bangor Normal College and that Aberystwyth University was a production line for crooked lawyers.

Goronwy was in office when the plans to flood Cwm Tryweryn were drawn up and he was a Welsh Office Minister when the Cwm was flooded. This was an event which caused massive resentment in Wales, particularly in the north and the huge protest from local people – including those who were kicked out of their houses and relocated because their whole village was going underwater in order for Liverpool to have a supply of drinking water – was simply ignored by the Labour Party. There are many who argue that the flooding of Tryweryn was the event which propelled the first Plaid MPs into office. It really, really pissed people off and the Labour Party were incredibly arrogant and foolish to show so little regard for people in north Wales.

Here’s Goronwy, looking dapper, his own house not having been submerged:

Goronwy Roberts, Baron Goronwy-Roberts - Wikipedia

 

Goronwy had two children, David and Ann. They will undoubtedly have been influential people in north Wales, but I cannot find out anything about them, except that Ann lived in Pwllheli and died in 2016. The executors of her will were Swayne Johnson Solicitors, 17 Trinity Square, Llandudno. Trinity Square Llandudno is on Dafydd’s turf, the branch of MIND which is run by Dafydd’s gang is located there . David Goronwy-Roberts was still alive at the time of Ann’s death. I suspect that info about them has disappeared from the internet as this blog has become well-known…

Goronwy Roberts held his seat with hefty majorities, some of which were almost as gobsmacking as some of Dafydd Wigley’s majorities. I recognised the names of some of those who challenged Goronwy Roberts; they have previously featured on this blog as paedophiles’ friends. Goronwy was very safe until 1970, when his majority was substantially reduced by Plaid’s Robyn Lewis.

In Feb 1974 Goronwy lost the seat to Dafydd Wigley, but only by 1,728 votes. Articles about Goronwy Roberts mention his deep concern about the way in which he lost his seat and associated events, but I cannot find details of exactly what it was that caused the ructions. Whatever it was, Goronwy didn’t lose his seat because of his tireless support for the Oppressed of north Wales. Sexually assaulted and illegally banged up in Denbigh? It was Nuffin To Do With Goronwy.

 

In 1950, Goronwy had a majority of 28.2% (10,578) over the Tory candidate. Plaid did field a candidate for Caernarfon in 1950, it was John Jones. John Edward Jones, known as J.E. Jones, was born in Melin-y-Wig in Denbighshire. He studied at Bala Grammar School and UCNW. At UCNW, Jones was elected leader of the Students’ Union and conducted a successful campaign to have Welsh made an official language at UCNW, alongside English. Jones was active in Y Tair G, which in 1925 became a component of the new Plaid Cymru. In 1928, he became a teacher in London and he founded a successful branch of Plaid there; as a result, in 1930, he was appointed General Secretary of the Party and returned to Wales. In this role, he was responsible for organising Party conferences and rallies and supporting local branches. J.E. Jones was involved in the campaign against Bombing School in Llyn in 1935 and the flooding of Cwm Tryweryn in 1965 (see post ‘Tan yn Llyn’). He took care of Party press releases and all publicity and occasionally he had to shoulder most of the load in publishing the Party’s papers, Y Ddraig Goch and Welsh Nation . More than a hundred books and pamphlets were published during his term as General Secretary. Jones stood down as General Secretary in 1962, becoming an official adviser to the Party, by which time Dafydd had firmly established himself in Plaid (see post ‘Tan yn Llyn’).

The 1950 General Election was the only time that Jones stood for election. Gwynfor Evans stated that Jones ‘contributed more than anyone to the great feat of keeping Plaid Cymru together during World War II’. WWII was a difficult time for Plaid as a result of allegations by their opponents that ‘Plaid supported Hitler’, an accusation that is still made by some today. It wasn’t quite as simple as that. Some members of Plaid eg. Saunders Lewis and Ambrose Bebb, did have links with fascist movements on mainland Europe, but they grew from interests in Catholic nationalist organisations rather than any great admiration for Hitler. Some members of Plaid were opposed to WWII for a variety of reasons, but then so were many other people in the UK. It has been forgotten how many people in the UK in the years before WWII took the same stance towards the Nazis and the idea of going to war with Germany as some members of Plaid did.

What is rather wore worthy of note is that while campaigning in the 1970 General Election, J.E. Jones was killed in a car accident…

In 1951 Goronwy Roberts had a majority of 24.8% (8,896) over the Tory candidate. In 1955 Goronwy’s majority was 26.3% (9,221) over the Tory candidate

In 1959, Goronwy’s majority was 23.1% (7,942) over the Tory candidate, Tom Hooson. This was the first time that Tom Hooson stood for Parliament; he was subsequently elected as the Tory MP for Brecon and Radnor in 1979 and held the seat until he died of a heart attack in office in 1985 at the age of 52. Tom Hooson was the cousin (and political opponent) of Emlyn Hooson, the Liberal and then Lib Dem MP for Montgomeryshire, 1962-79. Emlyn Hooson was a corrupt barrister on the Chester and Wales Circuit who concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the gang, as well as those of a few others including Jeremy Thorpe. Emlyn Hooson came from Denbighshire and was a big mate of Ronnie Waterhouse. See previous posts.

The Plaid candidate for Caernarfon in 1959 was Dafydd Orwig. Dafydd Orwig was a lecturer at the Normal College in Bangor and by the 1980s was a Gwynedd County Councillor. Dafydd Orwig was involved in the shafting of Patient F (see previous posts) and was known in Bethesda -where he lived – for simply touring the pubs and ordering the Perfect Slaves to support whatever campaign he needed backing for. Dafydd Orwig got the surprise of his life in the 1990s when he robustly supported the building of the Bethesda by-pass, but an opposing campaign driven virtually entirely by English incomers and hippies won the day. The Welsh Office Minister Lord Wyn Roberts, the paedophiles’ bestest friend (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’), really loved those hippies, much to the surprise of the hippies themselves. One of the opponents of the by-pass was Ed Ingram aka Filthy Ed, a minion of Professor Fergus Lowe in the School of Psychology at Bangor University. Filthy Ed not only had the dirt on Dafydd and the gang but he was sexually using school girls and was married to someone who starred in the hard core bestiality porn which was a side-line of Dafydd’s gang. I suspect that somehow Lord Wyn Roberts had been made aware of that. See previous posts.

Dafydd Orwig died in Nov 1996, just before the Waterhouse Inquiry began. Dr D. Ben Rees provided an obituary for the Indie, which was certainly an interesting take on the glorious life of Dafydd Orwig:

Bilingual education in Wales owes a great deal to a handful of local government politicians. In Glamorganshire, to the socialist intellectual Lord Heycock, in Gwynedd to Lloyd George’s nephew W.R.P. George and – in particular – to Dafydd Orwig, who was honoured this year by being chosen as Chairman of the new Gwynedd Council.

The new Gwynedd Council replaced the old Gwynedd Council, which had disappeared in the restructuring of the Welsh local authorities in 1996, as ordered by the Boundaries Commission which was Chaired by the well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend Professor Eric Sunderland, Principal of UCNW, 1984-1994. The local authority shake-up was most useful because it resulted in the disappearance of Clwyd County Council just a few weeks after the Jillings Report, which had investigated the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974. The Jillings Report was completely suppressed, but John Jillings and his team who conducted the Jillings Investigation were good enough to admit that there had been massive very serious abuse of children and it was very, very bad. Jillings also stated that there was evidence of organised abuse of children in north Wales stretching back decades before 1974. John Jillings refused to say whether he believed that there was a paedophile ring in operation in north Wales. John Jillings was the former Director of Derbyshire Social Services. Which had a paedophile gang operating within it which was linked to the gang in north Wales. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake’.

Orwig had done a long stint as an effective councillor. He had been a member of the Caernarfonshire County Council in 1973 and was a member of Gwynedd County Council from 1974 until local government reorganisation in April 1996. During those 23 years he took every opportunity to safeguard the Welsh language of the policy council. He did so with vigour and made sure that the translation service was given plenty to do by speaking always in his native tongue. I salute him for his courage and was always proud to hear him at the University of Wales Court of Governors pleading for his beloved language.

As George Galloway said to Saddam Hussein, ‘Sir, I salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability, and I want you to know that we are with you, hatta al-nasr, hatta al-nasr, hatta al-Quds [until victory, until victory, until Jerusalem]’.

He argued with conviction and his vision was of a bilingual Wales with every child able to speak the language and every student understanding it.

‘Do ewe mean mari-jew-ana? Don’t ewe think I was handsome? I think ewe should be in prrrisson.’

Orwig played an active part in the academic provision of textbooks in his own discipline. He wrote his first book in 1961, Fy Atlas Cyntaf (“My First Atlas”), then he adapted Cyril Midgley’s Looking at the Map for Edrychwch ar y Map (1972) and C. Penrose’s The Landscape of Britain for Tirlun Prydain (also 1972). But his outstanding contribution was as editor of Yr Atlas Cymraeg (“The Welsh Atlas”), published in 1988. It was the culmination of eight years of hard work for him and his team of contributors.

Dafydd Orwig taught at the county school in Blaenau Ffestiniog and the Dyffryn Ogwen High School in Bethesda, before being appointed a lecturer in a teachers’ training college, Bangor Normal College, where he became an effective ambassador among future teachers.

Ceryl Wyn Davies, a teacher from Blaenau Ffestiniog, who trained at Bangor Normal, was repeatedly convicted of sex offences against children – including his pupils – but was allowed by Gwynedd County Council to continue teaching. For one of his court appearances, Ceryl Wyn employed one Emlyn Hooson QC to act for him. See previous posts . Bangor Normal trained numerous teachers who spent their careers in north Wales and quite a few who ended up teaching in other parts of the UK.

Orwig was a very politically minded individual and his support for Plaid Cymru was total. He served the party in every possible sphere, at grass roots in the slate town of Bethesda, in the council chamber and, in a number of general elections, as agent for the nationalist candidate in the Conwy constituency.

Personally he showed the way by deleting his own original surname of Jones,

Could a certain Top Doctor have possibly brought that name into disrepute??

a symbolic act which became popular with so many younger members of the Welsh Language Society.

No of course he didn’t, Dafydd was mates with many of them

The society was proud he was one of its early members.

That well-known breaker of Welsh glass ceilings, Meri Huws aka the Crack Of Doom – a bedfellow of many a Welsh Gov’t Labour Minister, including it is rumoured Rhodri The Ale Twat (see post ‘People With Energy’) – was the first Woman to be Chair of the Welsh Language Society, 1981-83. During the 1980s, Meri was employed as a social worker by Gwynedd Social Services. Meri’s patch covered the Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor, where the children were violently assaulted, forced to work in local business for pitiful or no wages and were sold for sex by their social workers at various locations, including Dolphin Square in London (see post ‘Are You Local?’). The man in charge of Ty’r Felin was Nefyn Dodd, who boasted of being mates with Dafydd. Meri subsequently bagged a lecturing job at the Normal College. Like Dafydd Orwig, Meri was Passionate and Committed where the Welsh language was concerned. Meri Chaired the Welsh Language Board, 2004-12 – despite a row resulting from allegations that she was only given the job because she was shagging yet another Welsh Gov’t Minister, namely Andrew Davies – and in 2012 Meri was appointed the Welsh Gov’ts first Welsh Language Commissioner.

Dafydd Orwig was born in Deiniolen, a hill village near Caernarfon, which certainly by the 1960s was a by-word for disadvantage and hardship. I know of at least one case of someone from Deiniolen who as a six year old in the early 1970s lost his mum to suicide. His dad had great trouble looking after him and he was left to scavenge for food. He began drinking as a teenager and by his mid-20s he had a very serious alcohol problem and suffered with his ‘nerves’. By that time he was living down the road from Dafydd Orwig in Bethesda. He didn’t Bottle It Up like Men Do, he Shared and asked the GP in Bethesda for help. They gave him a prescription for valium and no further appointments. However, when I asked the Bethesda Police for advice after this man’s drinking caused a disturbance at my house – although he had not damaged anyone or anything – they offered to arrested ‘the fat bastard’ for me. I told them that the last thing that he needed was arresting and they said that in that case they couldn’t help. At the time, Dafydd was being paid a lot of money to provide an alcohol abuse service in Gwynedd.

The fat bastard was later the target of malicious allegations by a fucking nightmare of a lodger, Donna Morgan, who moved into my house. The fat bastard and his wife had been very generous to Donna – as had I. They had given her daily lifts in and out of Bangor University, where she was doing a Social Policy degree; they had bought her groceries and purchased toys and clothes for her small boy. To show us how grateful she was, she bounced a cheque for £500 on me and stole everything of any value in my house, leaving me a note telling me that if I went to the police, two of her mates would ‘vouch for’ her and testify that I was mad and a danger to her son. I tracked Donna down and the police ordered me not to go near her, because she was ‘in hiding’. Not from me, but from the father of her son who was a gangster. So I obtained a civil court order against her in an attempt to get my £500. When I served tried to serve it on Donna in the Students’ Union in Bangor University, the Welfare Officer Fran Tate – a paedophiles’ friend who later worked for the CAB where Lucille Hughes was a senior manager – tried to have me thrown out by the security men. They couldn’t chuck me out because I had an order from a judge allowing me access to the building. So they helped Donna get away out of a different entrance. I subsequently bumped into her in Bangor, so I served the order on her there. She gave me look of bovine incomprehension and scarpered. No-one ever heard from  her again.

I later found out that Donna Morgan was a gift from the Social Services. She had grown up in care in Conwy and they knew that I had advertised for a lodger and sent her my way because they thought that I deserved her. She was also shagging some of the police officers at Bangor Police Station – or according to them she was – and they cheerily arrested people at whom she pointed the finger. Which after Donna ran from the Bethesda/Bangor area, included a man whom she accused of raping her. She eventually fessed up that there was no truth in her allegations, but not until he had been arrested and held in custody, after being denied bail.

Donna Morgan also made friends with a man called Barry, who was a transgender mature student at Bangor University. He sounded like a very vulnerable man with quite serious difficulties, so he must have been overjoyed when Donna stuck the knife into him as well.

The fat bastard had a lucky escape; after Donna began to make allegations about him, his wife told the two paedophiles’ friends who were going to Vouch For Her in the event of me going to the police that if Donna continued telling malicious lies, she’d slap her one. The two Vouchers were a cocaine addict/dealer called Malcom Fox and his girlfriend Denise Baker. Denise Baker later worked as a psychologist at the Hergest Unit and at Manchester University, where she was sacked after being deemed to be a risk to vulnerable people. Sadly her boss Prof Louis Appleby, the Westminster Gov’ts Mental Health Tsar, not only didn’t warn anyone about Denise, so she got another job with vulnerable people, but somehow many years after she left his employment she was given a PhD on the basis of her ‘work’ with Appleby’s team. She then metamorphosed into Dr Denise Baker-McClearn,  having married Sean McClearn, a children’s social worker with Anglesey Social Services. Denise’s stepfather was a social worker as well, in the south of England. After being sacked from yet another job, Dr Denise Baker-McClearn gave up being a ‘health psychologist’ and ran a pop-up restaurant, where most of her customers were her husband’s colleagues. Then Denise opened a ‘social enterprise’, a cafe in Bethesda with was run entirely on donations of left-over food from supermarkets and other generous organisations who didn’t realise with whom they were dealing. It ended in much bad feeling when Denise stood accused of harassing and intimidating an Empowered Service User who lived in the flat above the cafe, who after a few encounters with Denise didn’t dare leave her flat. Dr Baker-McClearn has now left north Wales after having helped so many with her ever-giving heart and moved elsewhere after amending her name yet again after her husband kicked her out. See previous posts.

 

So much for Dafydd Orwig’s ambassadorial talents and his toxic mycelia, which penetrated much of Bangor University, particularly after the Normal College merged with the University in 1996. Following the merger, Dafydd Orwig’s associates were to be found in great number in the University, especially in the School of Education. They won’t all have liked him because he was a nasty piece of work, but it will have been the usual story – Fings Break…

Dafydd Orwig died on Nov 10 1996. Nov 10 is my birthday. If I’d have known that he had pegged out, I’d have had a double celebration, particularly as in 1996 those we know and love were working extra hard at pursuing Patient F, as well as me, through the courts.

 

Now for a brief overview of Dr D. Ben Rees, who wrote that hagiography of a deeply unpleasant man. David Benjamin Rees is a Welsh and English-language publisher, author, lecturer and Minister in the Presbyterian Church of Wales since 1962 and leader of the Welsh community in Liverpool. He leads one of Liverpool’s five remaining Welsh chapels. Dr D. Ben Rees’s small publishing house, Modern Welsh Publications Ltd, was established in 1963. From 1963 to 1968 it operated from Abercynon in South Wales. Since 1968 it has operated from Allerton, Liverpool and is the only Welsh language publishing house still operating in Liverpool. D. Ben Rees writes largely on pacifism, ‘Welsh culture’ and theology.

 

In 1964, the year that Harold Wilson became PM, Goronwy Roberts’s majority over the Tory candidate, Shelagh Roberts, was 30.17% (9,862).

Shelagh Roberts was born in Port Talbot and was educated at Milford Haven County School, Ystalyfera School and then St. Wyburn School at Birkdale. After leaving school she started work with the Inland Revenue in Liverpool. Roberts was a member of Kensington Borough Council, 1953 to 1971, while she had a go at becoming the Tory MP for Caenarfon. She was then a member of the GLC, 1970-81. In 1981, Shelagh Roberts was appointed a Dame for her ‘political work’. Which at that point had only ever encompassed losing the election at Caernarfon in 1964 and then sitting on the GLC when the London Boroughs sent hundreds of kids in their care to children’s homes in north Wales where they were abused and trafficked into prostitution; the GLC knew about this but concealed it, continuing to send the kids to north Wales…

Dame Shelagh was a member of Port of London Authority, Basildon Development Corporation and the Race Relations Board. The Dame represented London South West in the European Parliament, 1979-89. Her ‘service’ in the European Parliament was briefly interrupted in 1979 when it was discovered that she held an ‘office of profit’ – Shelagh was a member of the Occupational Pensions Board which was no doubt an office of enormous profit – under the Crown and was disqualified from serving. The Dame then resigned the office of profit and was re-elected as an MEP a few months later. After losing her seat to Labour in 1989, as a booby prize, the Dame was made Chairman of the London Tourist Board, serving until her death. It was announced on 31 December 1991 that the Dame was to be created a life peer – after the careers of the key witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd et al had all been ruined – but she died from cancer in January 1992, aged 67, before she could take her seat in the Lords. Roberts never married.

In 1966 when Harold Wilson took the nation by storm, Goronwy’s majority was 33.95% (10,678) over the Tory candidate. Then in 1970, Goronwy’s majority was slashed to 6.76% (2,296) by Plaid’s Robyn Lewis. Robyn Lewis is the Godfather of the corrupt solicitors of Pwllheli and served as the Archdruid for National Eisteddfod purposes for a long while. Lewis has spent much time in dispute with other paedophiles’ friends and has been active in both the Labour Party and Plaid. See previous posts.

So although Goronwy Roberts made much of the implied dirty tricks at the Feb 1974 General Election, the writing was on the wall by 1970 when Robyn Lewis nearly finished him.

The Marxist historian Eric Hobsbawm was one of those radicals who for years spent his summers at Croesor, in a cottage on the Brondanw estate which he rented off Sir Clough Williams-Ellis (see post ‘The Village’). In his autobiography ‘Interesting Times’, Hobsbawm devoted a chapter to Croesor. He wrote about how he and most of the other summer visitors from England were faced with a great deal of unpleasantness from a contingent of local people in north Wales from the late 1960s/early 70s which became so bad that most of the summer visitors gradually stopped going to Croesor. The real crunch came when Clough’s grandson Robin Llywelyn inherited the estate and cancelled the tenancies of the summer visitors. I spoke to a number of people who, like Eric, had been part of the ‘Welsh Bloomsbury Set’ at Croesor and they all remembered the terrible bad feeling which had saddened a lot of people who had been staying at Croesor for the summer for decades and had been good friends with some of the local people. I was given a variety of reasons as to what the cause was. Robin Llywelyn’s rationale was that he would only let houses to local people, not to second homers. Second home ownership in Gwynedd was causing much bad feeling at the time, understandably so in some cases. Yet the cottages in Croesor were not sought after by local people; people who grew up in Croesor told me that they loved it there but they all wanted to leave and did because there was no employment there. It would be difficult to argue that, in Croesor, second homers were squeezing locals out in the way that they did in places like Abersoch. Other local people told me that there was bad feeling that people like Eric couldn’t understand because he and the other summer visitors were wealthy – Eric et al didn’t perceive themselves to be, but compared to people in Croeser they were – and the summer crowd ‘played’ at chopping wood, living the simple life etc, but it was just playing; they weren’t looking at a lifetime of bugger all money and bad housing. In his writing, Eric attributed the hostility to the summer visitors to the rise of Welsh Nationalist feeling, which he claimed was whipping up hatred unnecessarily. Eric was a central European Jew who had spent his early life in Vienna and Berlin and later moved to London with the rise of Hitler. He was bound to hate nationalism of any kind.

However, Eric told me something which he didn’t mention in his book. He cryptically remarked that the real cause of the aggro at Croesor ‘was to be found in Croesor School’. There were great anxieties in Croesor over the future of the school, which ironically only remained open as long as it did because of a group of English incomers who wanted their children to learn through the medium of Welsh and drove their kids several miles from their homes elsewhere to attend Croesor School. A number of former pupils of Croesor School told me a few other things about the school, but they told me in confidence, so I’m not going to blog about their info.

However Eric knew about Dafydd and that trafficking gang, as did everyone else, locals and visitors, in Croesor/Llanfrothen. They also knew that Dafydd was somehow linked to Bertrand Russell, who in his later years lived near Croesor and was a friend of Clough. Whatever aggro was caused by the dynamics of a Welsh speaking village hosting a crowd of upper middle class Bohemians every summer, as well as the anxieties regarding the future of the school and the rise of Plaid and Robin Llywelyn pledging allegiance to Plaid, the real problem was that bloody trafficking gang, which by the time that Robin kicked all the summer visitors out was running the whole of north Wales…See previous posts.

In Feb 1974, Dafydd Wigley won the Caernarfon seat with a majority of 5.00% (1,728) over Goronwy. Tristan Garel-Jones stood as the Tory candidate and came third. Garel-Jones was elected as the Tory MP for Watford in 1979, retaining the seat until 1997, when he was made a life peer. Following his election to Parliament, Garel-Jones served in various Whip positions positions and also as Minister for Europe, 1990-93. He was seen as an effective Whip who successfully delivered Parliamentary votes in favour of Thatch’s legislation and was considered to be ‘a mixture of Machiavelli and Ivan the Terrible’ by the Thatcherite right-wing. Garel-Jones is said to be the inspiration for the fictional Whip turned PM, Francis Urquhart in ‘House of Cards’. What no-one did while Garel-Jones was doing his ‘You might very well think that; I couldn’t possibly comment’ bit, was to confront him with ‘don’t lean on me you threatening bastard or I’ll blow the whistle on Peter Morrison and the rest of them as well…’

Garel-Jones was a leading pro-European and remained so despite the Conservative Party moving to a more eurosceptic position. Many of the paedophiles’ friends were very keen on Europe, as were Dafydd and John Allen themselves, as they held ‘clinics’ and took children for ‘holidays’ there…

Garel-Jones voted for Thatch in the first round of the leadership challenge by Heseltine, but reserved the right to vote against her if it went to a second round. He subsequently voted for Douglas Hurd. Hurd colluded with Dafydd and the gang throughout Hurd’s time as Home Secretary. Hurd’s uncle was a botanist who had links with the Plant Biology Dept at Bangor University, of which two members of staff were married to members of the trafficking gang and other members of staff were very friendly with them (see eg. post ‘Additional Security Measures’).

After he stepped down from the Commons in 1997, Garel-J0nes was given a life peerage. Garel-Jones is a supporter of Humanists UK and a Vice Chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Humanist Group.

 

In Oct 1974 Dafydd Wigley held the seat with a majority of 8.400% (2,894), over the Labour candidate Emlyn Sherrington. Kremlyn Sherrington spent many years as a lecturer in the School of History in Bangor University, where he was known for trying to cultivate the company of women some forty years younger than himself. Which I always thought was a bit of a joke until someone told me that he did rather more than pursue them, he got as far as exposing himself to them at University functions. I’m sure that they were not that wowed, but Kremlyn obviously didn’t realise. Kremlyn’s colleagues in the School of History included Dinah, who was married to Ron Evans, the corrupt lawyer who was employed by Gwynedd County Council to frame witnesses and who concealed Dafydd’s gang for years and Nia Powell, who I was told has a father who was a judge. I have no idea which judge Nia’s dad was, but whoever he was, it really would be surprising if he didn’t collude with Dafydd et al; he’d have been the only judge who didn’t. Nia was a student at Aberystwyth University when Neil Hamilton, also a student, famously goose-stepped around the institution. The Crack of Doom was also a student at Aber and is of a similar vintage to Nia and Neil Hamilton.

In Oct 1974, the Liberal candidate for Caernarfon was a Dewi Williams. There was a Top Doctor, a GP, in Caernarfon of that name who was on board with the gang and there was another Top Doctor as well with the same name who sat on the Council of Bangor University. I don’t know if either of those Top Docs were the Dewi Williams who stood in Oct 1974, but standing as the Liberal candidate is the sort of thing that a Top Doc might do.

In May 1979 when Thatch thrashed Labour, Wigley’s majority rose to 24.90% (8,724) over Labour’s Thomas Merfyn Hughes. Now that was a curious incident, because Thomas Merfyn Hughes within a few short years was the election agent for the Plaid MP Elfyn Llwyd, a dodgy barrister who was Chair of Gwynedd Law Society and on board with Dafydd et al. Merfyn Hughes was a retired social worker who lived in Croesor. Merfyn came to a nasty end in 2010. His body was found in someone else’s garden in Llanfrothen, at the foot of a steep embankment, concealed from view behind a greenhouse. His body lay undiscovered for 36 hours. Merfyn had the honour of being the subject of the most bizarre inquest conclusion in the history of Gwynedd, which is certainly some honour. The notorious coroner Dewi Pritchard Jones concluded that Merfyn had been walking home from the pub in the early hours, had fallen down the embankment, landed in the other person’s garden and decided to have a nap there. It was a cold winter’s night, so as Merfyn was having 40 winks, he froze to death without noticing. Presumably he also hid his body.

I noted Merfyn’s death because in 2005 I encountered him on the phone. He was at the time a senior manager for Gwynedd Social Services and had the remit of managing the paedophile’s colleagues in the Arfon Community Mental Health Team. They were unlawfully refusing to hand over my file – which they should never have had anyway because I wasn’t and had never been a ‘client’ of theirs – so I rang their manager, who was Merfyn. He pissed me off by calling me a Service User, but to be fair he told me that because Keith Fearns et al were unlawfully witholding documentation, he would physically go down to their office and remove it from them. Which Merfyn did. He then sent it to me and I discovered not only the usual lies and plans to frame me, but mountains of information from various third parties which they should never have had, should never have asked for and should never have been given when they did ask for it. It was mind blowing, even by the standards of the paedophile gang. They had been keeping records for years of my university courses, my job applications, medical conditions unrelated to mental health, my friendships, my housing arrangements, absolutely everything, it was extraordinary. Interspersed with all the info were numerous notes about how they were ‘most concerned’ to hear that I was now doing this course or that job or living at that address and that they would now be ‘sharing information’ to alert everyone to the dangerous nutter at large. All completely unlawful, even if I had have been a dangerous nutter and they had been providing me with any sort of ‘service’.

Merfyn was found dead, aged 63 yrs, in Nov 2010. By that time, Brown and I had begun publishing about the mental health services in north Wales. We had appeared in the broadsheets and were openly discussing our plans to publish a book about my appalling experiences at the hands of Dafydd et al. It was clear that the police would soon be forced to re-open the investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and the need to review the Waterhouse Inquiry was being discussed.

For the full background on Merfyn’s death, see post ‘A Particularly Worrying Death’.

Such was the concern over Gwynne and Dafydd’s habit of banging people up in Denbigh who had crossed the paths of their mates, at one point an issue was made of there being no Welsh speaking psychiatric social worker in north Wales, thus targets were being ‘assessed’ in English, a language which many of them could not speak at all well. The argument was a red herring because Dafydd and Gwynne were first language Welsh – Dafydd was from Bethesda – as were scores of Angels at Denbigh. If anyone had really wanted to stop the gross abuses they could have. However in response to this, a Welsh speaking psychiatric social worker was appointed. I imagine that this simply made it even easier for Dafydd and Gwynne to incarcerate people; ‘ooh but they were interviewed in their mother tongue, OF COURSE the assessment was full and proper and they are definitely MAD’. It was people who lived in Croesor who told me about this, so I am wondering if the Welsh speaking Perfect Slave of a psychiatric social worker who was installed back in the early 1970s was Merfyn Hughes.

I hate to think what was happening to that social worker who once stood as the Labour candidate against Dafydd Wigley for election to the Commons. Fings Obviously Broke.

 

Didn’t any of you wonder what had gone on Windbag/Miranda/Gordon??? Or indeed you Betty Williams, who would have personally known Merfyn Hughes?

Fallen down an embankment in the middle of the night, landed in someone else’s garden, gone to sleep, died and then hidden his own body?

‘You might very well think that; I couldn’t possibly comment.’

MP Betty Williams tells her life story - Daily Post

 

Dafydd Wigley

 

Lord Wigley is still churning out a weekly column for ‘The Daily Post’, perhaps for his next piece he could write a few words about his memories of Merfyn Hughes before Merfyn met his slapstick death.

 

1979 was the year in which Dafydd had Mary Wynch unlawfully arrested and imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre and then the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. By 1979, Dafydd did exactly what he wanted, along with the other rotten Top Doctors and the ring of crooked solicitors in north Wales of which Mary complained. Risley was fully complicit and as Mary later demonstrated, the Treasury Solicitor was also part of the corruption. By 1979 there was havoc at UCNW and there was en masse abuse of children in the numerous children’s homes that were now springing up all over north Wales. The supply of kids and young people to the VIP trafficking gang was well underway.

In 1983 Wigley’s majority had increased to 31% (10,989). Mary Wynch was by now on her way to the Master of the Rolls; Dafydd et al knew that, but the wider public didn’t. Wigley’s nearest rival had been the Tory candidate. Betty Williams, the Labour candidate, came third; Michael Foot was still leader of the Labour Party at the 1983 General Election and had known about Dafydd and the gang for years. Betty Williams studied at Bangor Normal College and served as a Gwynedd County Councillor and the Mayor of Arfon in 1990. In 1997, Betty became the Blair’s babe for Conwy. She held the seat until 2010, throughout it all ignoring complaints about the abuse of mental health patients. Betty knew about Dafydd’s gang and simply kept schtum. See previous posts.

 

Alice Cooper - Elected.jpg

Alice Cooper’s 1972 hit ‘Elected’ was a reworked version of their debut single ‘Reflected’, from their 1969 album ‘Pretties for You’.

Ioan Bowen Rees was appointed Gwynedd County Council’s Chief Exec in 1980 and remained in post until 1991. Lucille Hughes had held a senior management post in Gwynedd Social Services since the mid-1970s. In 1981 Lucille was given responsibility for the children’s section and in Oct 1983, she became Director of Social Services for Gwynedd. Ioan had stood as the Plaid candidate for Conway in 1955 and for Merthyr Tydfil in 1964. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’

In 1987, Wigley’s majority rose to 36.60% (12,812). His nearest rival was the Tory candidate, Felix Aubel. Labour’s David Williams came third.

Felix Aubel was born in Cardiff to an anti-Communist soldier from the former Yugoslavia and a teacher from Aberdare. Aubel has stood many times for Parliament but never won election: he was once described by the Welsh language campaigner Ffred Ffransis as being ‘too honest’ to be an MP. In 1983, Felix stood as the SDP candidate in the Cynon Valley, then again in the subsequent by-election in 1984. Aubel left the SDP in disagreement with their policies on defence and devolution and joined the Conservatives. Aubel’s best performance as a Tory candidate was in the 2001 general election when he came within 750 votes of toppling the Lib Dems in Brecon and Radnorshire. Aubel stood down as a candidate in 2004 and says he is busy enough with his lecturing, media career and Congregational ministry in Carmarthenshire to consider standing again. In a 2010 interview he said that he remained loyal to the Conservative cause.

Here’s Felix campaigning with Jeffrey Archer in Cardigan in 1996:

Felix Aubel and Jeffrey Archer

 

 

 

 

 

By 1987 when Felix was trying his chances in Caernarfon as a Tory, Dafydd’s gang ruled supreme. Patient F had been framed and unlawfully imprisoned in Risley and then Denbigh after he’d told a few too many people that he knew that kids in the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor were being mistreated and the gang had declared all out war on me, Brown, Brown’s brother and our friends who were witnesses. I had been unlawfully arrested and held in Denbigh and my housemate Anne had been killed. Alison Taylor had been suspended from her job and was well on the way to being sacked. The Windbag tried his hardest to ingratiate himself to Tony Francis’s mates in the NHS, but it wasn’t enough to win Paedophilia HQ. The criminality was enormous, but no-one, no-one in authority was challenging it.

The Gang Of Four never fielded an SDP candidate in Caernarfon, although Dr Death personally knew some of the Top Doctors in Dafydd’s gang and Dr D.G.E. Wood was a big fan of Dr Death. Every member of the Gang Of Four knew about Dafydd and his gang and maxed out on this knowledge when they developed their initial election strategy (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’).

 

In 1992, Wigley’s majority increased to 39.90% (14,476). His nearest rival was Peter E.H. Fowler, the Tory candidate. The Labour candidate was Sharon Mainwaring. In the 1990s, Sharon Mainwaring was a Director of several companies, all based in Swansea, one of which was Atebion, . Atebion set up a branch in Bangor, it advertised itself as a ‘training organisation’ for wimmin having a hard time who wanted to return to work. I was one of those lured through its doors. There was only one course offered – word processing/typing. I though oh well it’ll be useful, I can earn a bit of extra cash part-time. I should have known better, it was of course a con. Not a complete con, but certainly not value for money. We all paid well over £100 – everyone being utterly skint and saving up out of benefits – for the privilege of being sat in front of a word processor for a few hours, after being given an instruction book and told to follow it. We taught ourselves while a bint in Next clothes wafted in and out of the room now and then without speaking to any of us. There was no qualification at the end of it. I never used those ‘skills’ again. A lot of people have done very well out of Helping Wimmin, but not the Wimmin who have handed over money to be Helped. Sharon Mainwaring was also a Director of Lliw Valley Women’s Aid, 1992-94, yet another organisation – founded by Jane Hutt – which concealed Dafydd and all the associated gangs while Helping Wimmin. Mainwaring’s name also crops up associated with ‘Care and Repair Cymru’, an organisation which does odd jobs for the needy. ‘Care and Repair’ do do things for people but only the things that would be done under normal circumstances by Housing Associations, Councils etc if they actually did their jobs properly.

Mary Wynch had appeared in a TV documentary in March 1991 and a group of Lib Dems had signed an Early Day Motion in support of her a few days after the TV documentary. Everything went quiet very soon after that; every Lib Dem who signed the EDM subsequently received a peerage, except for the Lib Dem who tabled it, David Bellotti, who instead had his career in Parliament destroyed. See post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’. By 1992, my career and the careers of three other witnesses had been completely wrecked and there had been repeated attempts to imprison me on the basis of the gang’s perjury. The North Wales Police had held an investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile gang in north Wales/Chester and in 1992 had colluded that there was no evidence for one. Alison Taylor had been trashed by everyone. A civil war had broken out in the School of Social Sciences at Bangor University, elicited by the paedophile gang (see previous posts eg. ‘Badlands’). Reinforcements were called in by the gang and there were many TV programmes, chat shows, books and articles about the wonders of psychiatry, ‘Welsh culture’ and its proud traditions in literature, music and arts and a flurry of interest in the history of psychiatry in north Wales, of which not one account contained more than a grain of truth. Dafydd’s Denbigh Dungeon didn’t get a mention, although it was still in operation.

Just days after Dafydd Wigley romped home with his huge majority, the Brighton firebomb killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. The man who allegedly confessed to starting the fire was found dead shortly after and over the next few years a few of the witnesses who had managed to survive the firebomb were found dead. See post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’.

Yma O Fucking Hyd.

In the 1997 General Election, things had begun to take a little turn downward for Lord Wigley. He retained the seat, but his majority was reduced to 21.60% (7,449), over his nearest rival, the Labour candidate Eifion Wyn Williams. It was the General Election of Miranda’s landslide and Betty Williams had been redeployed to Conwy to do her bit for Miranda’s Wimmin. North Wales had begun to look a little tarnished after a steady supply of dead former kids in care and psych patients as well as the Jillings Inquiry – even though Cherie and Miranda’s mate Michael Beloff QC (the son of Lord Max Beloff, a mate of Ioan Bowen Rees) had ensured that the Jillings Report was completely suppressed (see post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake’) – plus numerous allegations that there definitely was a big paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire that was indeed being concealed at the highest levels of Gov’t. The Waterhouse Inquiry had begun and Hergest patients were being arrested constantly for ludicrous reasons, including Patient F and me. The gang were frantically busy behind the scenes – once more – trying to make a case for banging me up in a secure mental hospital.

By 1997 the UK pop scene was becoming overwhelmed by the New Talent from Wales; Cool Cymru was upon us. A great many of the young songsters were the offspring of people who had facilitated or colluded with Dafydd and the associated gangs. Gruff Rhys, who’s band the Super Furry Animals received inexplicable boosts to their careers from Big Names in the music industry, was the son of Ioan Bowen Rees; Gruff used to practice with his band at the end of the terrace where I lived. Cerys Matthews was a former psychiatric nurse who had, for reasons never explained, given that up; her dad was a Top Doctor who had worked in Cardiff and then West Wales, where there were trafficking gangs linked with Dafydd’s lot. Huw Bunford had been a colleague of John Owen, a teacher and TV scriptwriter from south Wales who abused his pupils for years and was found dead in Oct 2001 days before his trial was due to begin. See posts ‘The International Language Of Screaming’ and ‘Yet More Inglorious Bastards’.

In 1999 my friend’s baby  – my friend was a witness to the criminality in north Wales – died as a result of negligence at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton. She was told by a Top Doctor that he knew that the staff were going to lie if my friend took legal action. When I finally received copies of my medical records, there was information about my friend’s baby’s death in there.

Dafydd Wigley did not fight the 2001 General Election. The Plaid candidate was Hywel Williams, a former psychiatric social worker, who shared platforms with members of Dafydd’s gang and had been the Director of Social Work at Bangor University. Hywel won – the constituency was from 2001 known as Arfon – with a majority of 12.10% (3,511), over the Labour candidate Martin Eaglestone. Whom I met a few years ago, at a friend’s house. Martin was very frosty to me and I thought ‘that’s not very good for a candidate on the campaign trail’, but I later realised that Martin probably knew who I was, as did a few other frosty campaigning candidates.

Don’t mention the war! Or indeed Dafydd and the paedophile gang.

 

Between 1997 and 2001, the most enormous punch-up occurred within Plaid over Dafydd Wigley, but I have never found out what it was all about. Wigley stepped aside on the grounds of his heart trouble. He did have heart trouble but there was also a Grade A scrap.Years later Wigley’s wife Elinor Bennett wrote a little bit about it, maintaining that her husband had been treated appallingly after years of loyal service, but there still wasn’t much light shed on matters. Because Hywel Williams had been so fucking rude to me and other Empowered Service Users when we dared raise concerns about the abuse of mental health patients, I just thought ‘oh it’ll have been Hywel and a bunch of thugs causing trouble’, but I now know that Dafydd Wigley colluded every bit as much with the gang as Hywel did. Only Wigley was a better actor. I have a new respect for Hywel – he made it obvious that he didn’t give a fuck about us, he openly had coffee with the people who threatened and assaulted us and appeared on Dr Dafydd Alun Jones’s twitter feed, whereas Dafydd Wigley pretended to be nice to us.

There’s nothing like honesty and transparency in politics. If you’re going to be mates with a gang of paedophiles, then do be seen around Gwynedd supping with them a la Hywel.

Ym O Hyd!

Hywel. His attributes his alopecia to stress. I can understand that.

Hywel held the seat in 2005, with a majority of 18.60% over Martin Eaglestone. The Tory candidate was Guy Opperman. Opperman is now the Tory MP for Hexham, having been elected in 2010. Hexham is near Newcastle-upon-Tyne, the location of a long-standing trafficking ring linked to Dafydd’s gang which supplied both kids and staff junior and senior to north Wales. Opperman was born in Marlborough and was educated at Harrow School. He has a degree in law from the University of Buckingham and a diploma from the University of Lille, France.

Opperman was called to the Bar in 1989 and spent 20 years as a barrister of which 15 years were spent predominantly at the criminal bar. Opperman prosecuted and defended in a number of murder and rape trials. Opperman did many years of pro bono work with the Western Circuit Free Representation Unit and the Bar Pro Bono Unit, providing free legal assistance in hundreds of cases on behalf of Victim Support and CAB. Lucille has been involved with the senior management of CAB for many years. Ronnie Waterhouse also had his fingers in the CAB pie, as does Tal Michael, the son of paedophiles’ and Miranda’s friend Alun Michael, the former First Secretary of Wales who scarpered immediately that the Waterhouse Report was published. See previous posts.

Opperman was awarded the Bar Pro Bono Award by Miranda’s Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith QC, for his voluntary work on behalf of victims in Criminal Injuries Compensation Appeals. Peter Goldsmith was given his peerage just before the publication of the Waterhouse Report and became AG the year following its publication. In 2009, the then Attorney General, Baroness Patricia Scotland QC, presented him with a Pro Bono Hero award in the House of Commons for his work on preventing hospital closures. Patricia is a paedophiles’ friend of the highest order and three previous blog are dedicated to Patricia and her pals.

Opperman was a Councillor in Kennet, Wiltshire, 1995-99.

Opperman led a legal campaign to oppose the closure of the NHS’s Savernake Hospital at Marlborough which he credited with saving his mother’s life from cancer. Although Opperman probably doesn’t know with any certainty that they did, but campaigning on behalf of the Top Docs is a favourite past-time for politicians.

Opperman runs a series of social action projects in the North East. In 2010, he established a work experience scheme based in his Hexham office to give young people an insight into politics and experience in work. Since its inception almost 100 local young people have taken part in the programme. During Christmas 2011, he collected presents for soldiers serving abroad in Afghanistan. In 2012, he coordinated the collection of more than 300 toys for disadvantaged children in north east England as part of the Northumberland Conservatives’ Christmas appeal, “Buy One More Toy”.

This is all good clean fun Guy, but those kids would probably have benefited more from you exposing the horror which passes for ‘children’s social services’ in your neck of the woods.

In September 2012 Opperman was appointed as PPS to Mark Harper, the Immigration Minister at the Home Office. Which is not quite as fluffy as campaigning on behalf of the NHS. Theresa was Home Secretary at the time and oversaw deaths and abuses in immigration detention centres and was responsible for those Vans Of Hate telling darkies to go home. While Home Secretary, Theresa organised the Macur Review of the Waterhouse Inquiry, which, surprise surprise, was another heavily redacted cover-up, that maintained that there was nothing untoward with Ronnie’s original. Not that Theresa would ever want the sordid truth to be revealed, Theresa having been one of the Councillors of the London Borough of Merton, which was served by St George’s Hospital Medical School when St George’s was facilitating the trafficking ring which was directly linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales.

Opperman has previously described himself as “rather on the left” of the Conservative Party and has previously opposed regional pay but supported the Living Wage, regional banks, and industrial activism. He called for his Party to do more to show it supports “the hard working people in our public sector”. Like Angels and Top Doctors!

Opperman’s interests in Parliament include assisted dying and prison reform.  On 8 August 2013, Opperman declared his support for the Living Wage in an article for the New Statesman. In this article he asked: “How and why did we let it become acceptable for a full-time job not to pay enough to live on?”. Fancy making any points about the problems that excessively high pay among some people in the NHS is causing then Guy?

Although he led a campaign to oppose the closure of Savernake Hospital, Opperman has overseen multiple NHS service closures in his constituency, for instance, the shutting of the overnight urgent care services at Hexham hospital. Er – would it be the distressed psych patients who are turning up to use that service?

Guy Opperman was appointed as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department for Work and Pensions on 14 June 2017. He quickly found himself mired in controversy in the national press, when footage from 2013 was uncovered showing him stating that he understood what it was like to live on a zero-hours contract because he once worked as a £250-per-hour barrister. Weeks later, in response to the group Women Against State Pension Inequality, he was quoted as saying that older women who face cuts to their state pension could take up apprenticeships as a route to re-employment. Well people who carry on like me would be quite willing Guy, but there is quite a problem of age discrimination in the job market. Furthermore, the WASPI protesters have paid into their pensions, it’s just that the rules were changed after a few decades of them doing that… Opperman faced criticism in October 2017 for pulling out of a pensions fringe event at the Tory Party Conference in an apparent attempt to avoid a nearby protest staged by WASPI.

Opperman was criticised in the ‘Financial Times’ in September 2017 for being “clueless” about the Lifetime ISA and for following a “line of pensions Ministers with no interest in pensions stretching back to the 1990s”.

In April 2011, Opperman was diagnosed with a brain tumour after suffering from headaches whilst at work in Parliament. He was rushed to hospital on the advice of his fellow Conservative MP and doctor, Dan Poulter and underwent emergency surgery. He recovered fully after several months. Yeah, Guy would have, he’s campaigned on behalf of the Top Doctors. You’re only left to die by The Walton Centre if you and your nearest and dearest have challenged the paedophiles’ friends a la Nerys the Bangor sociologist (see previous posts).

Guy Opperman has raised almost £10,000 for charity including over £4,000 in 2011 for the National Brain Appeal at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery which he credits with saving his life after suffering from a brain tumour. But as Guy is not a neurosurgeon, once again he wouldn’t actually know. The Top Docs would and they also know a useful PR vehicle when they see one. Guy and Labour MP Paul Blomfield, who also had a brain tumour in 2011, walked the first section of the Pennine Way in 2012 to raise money for Headway UK. That’ll be the Headway UK which employed someone whom I know as a manager. He left after a few months because he was rather unhappy about what Headway UK were up to… In 2012, Opperman walked 280 miles from Sheffield to Scotland raising £2,500 for the Great North Air Ambulance.

I presume that Guy Opperman’s view on Health Policy can be summed up by the usual: ‘Ah the doctors they were wonderful’.

Opperman was a Director of his family engineering business until 2009. He is a supporter of Middlesborough Football Club. 

In October 2012, Opperman had his first book published, Doing Time, an examination of the prison service and offender rehabilitation in the UK. In it he offers a consideration of re-offending, prisoner training, drug rehabilitation, prison management and payment by results in the prison system. I haven’t read ‘Doing Time’, but I guess that it does not contain an analysis of the corruption in forensic psychiatry which is resulting in so many people who have experienced organised abuse ending up in prison.

Opperman is a member of the Advisory Board of the High Pay Centre and has co-authored an essay with Green Party MP Caroline Lucas and TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady entitled “Better Business: Moral Matters”. In the essay he contrasts community-focused businesses in his own Northumberland constituency with the lack of responsibility demonstrated by the banking sector. There are great swathes of the Community in the North East who, like great swathes of the Community in north Wales, are going to great lengths to conceal the shameful recent past – which is profoundly influencing the present – of their Community.

 

Hywel remains the Plaid MP for the constituency – now known as Arfon – but he very nearly lost the last election.

 

Wrexham.

Wrexham has been held continually by Labour since 1935, the only blip being in 1981 when Tom Ellis, the Labour MP, defected to the SDP. At the 1983 General Election, normal service was resumed and the Labour MP, John Marek, won the seat. I need to qualify my use of the phrase ‘normal service’ in this context. John Marek provided anything but normal service and later defected to the Tory Party, having created his own Party along the way, of which he was the only member. However Marek did all that after he became the AM for Wrexham. As an MP, John Marek was Labour.

Bryn Estyn was located just outside of Wrexham and was staffed by local thugs. Because of the scale of abuse at Bryn Estyn, it was well worth everybody’s while ignoring what was happening there, although it wasn’t a huge employer per se; it was more a case of the organisations running it – the Home Office until the beginning of the 1970s, then the DHSS until the mid-1970s and then Clwyd County Council. These organisations were huge employers and their reputations needed to be upheld. The abuse of boys at Bryn Estyn stretched back decades – almost certainly to when it was established as a Home Office Approved School in 1943 – but things really started swinging in the late 1960s/early 1970s when Dafydd and John Allen went into business. The arrival at Bryn Estyn of Matt Arnold as Headmaster and his friend and colleague in paedophilia Peter Howarth – they had both relocated from Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead where they had operated a paedophile ring there – was the end for the boys at Bryn Estyn.

John Allen’s empire the Bryn Alyn Community was located just outside of Wrexham. It was a private enterprise which opened at the end of the 1960s, but housed kids in care who were funded by their local authorities. There were kids from north Wales at Bryn Alyn, but most of them were kids from metropolitan areas, such as the London Boroughs, the West Midlands, Manchester and the North East. Bryn Alyn soon became a huge enterprise. Kids were circulated around children’s homes in north Wales, as were staff and indeed the visiting abusers. By the late 1970s, a great many people had a vested interest in ensuring that events at Bryn Estyn and Bryn Alyn were kept very firmly under wraps. In Gwynedd, virtually everyone’s employment depended in some way on Dafydd and the gang; it was not quite as extreme in Wrexham, because Wrexham did have heavy industry which provided much employment. However that industry died during the 1970s and Wrexham was left in a very sorry state. It became notorious in north Wales for being – at least in the eyes of those who weren’t from Wrexham – a dump. There were massive socio-economic problems and the towns council estates, especially Queen’s Park, were infamous. Queen’s Park hosted riots and in 1985 its name was changed to Caia Park, but it was still an area where people would refuse to live even if quite desperate.

Wrexham was a very safe Labour seat until the late 1970s; I presume that the loss of the big Labour majorities will have been because of the severe economic problems faced by the town. The threat to Labour in Wrexham was always from the Tories or Liberals. Plaid fielded candidates but they trailed a long way behind, probably because of the very ‘English’ nature of the town; Wrexham is on the border and one very rarely hears Welsh spoken in the town.

Caernarfon was a safe seat with a consistently high turn out, always around 80%; Wrexham had much lower turn outs, usually about 55% but sometimes only around 45% or so.

From 1935 to 1955 the Labour MP for Wrexham was Robert Richards. Richards grew up in Montgomeryshire and studied at what became Aberystwyth University and then St John’s College, Cambridge. He lectured at Glasgow University, 2009-11, then moved to UNCW where he held the Chair in Economics until 1922. Richards entered the Commons as the Labour MP for Wrexham for the first time in 1922, but was later voted out and then back in again. Robert Richards died in office in 1955 at the age of 70.

In 1950, Richards had a majority of 32.35% (17,925) over the Conservative and National Liberal candidate. In 1951, Richards’s majority over the Conservative and National Liberal candidate was 26.67% (14,635).

At the 1955 by-election held after Richards’s death, Labour’s Idwal Jones won with a majority of 27% (10,926) over the Conservative and National Liberal candidate. James Idwal Jones was born in Rhosllannerchrugog, one of the few Welsh speaking villages in the Wrexham area. He was educated at  Ruabon Grammar School and at the Normal College, Bangor. Idwal Jones became a teacher in 1922 in Holt but then moved to positions in Glyn Ceiriog and Penycae ( in north east Wales, but further away from Wrexham).In 1938 Idwal Jones was appointed as Headmaster at Grango School in his home village of Rhosllannerchrugog.

Idwal will have been networked in with all those in education who spent years concealing organised abuse in north Wales.

Idwal first stood as a Labour Parliamentary candidate in 1951 for the West Denbighshire constituency, but was unsuccessful. After being elected for Wrexham in May 1955, Jones held the seat until he retired from the Commons at the 1970 General Election. He died at Ponciau, Wrexham in 1982, so he was around a long time to join in with the ‘How Very Dare You’ if people raised complaints about Gwynne, Dafydd and the gang.

Idwal Jones was the brother of Thomas William Jones aka Lord Maelor, Labour MP for Merioneth, 1951-66. Merioneth was a constituency in what is now south Gwynedd, which included Croesor, Llanfrothen and the surrounding area, domain of Sir Clough, Bertrand Russell and the local people who were rendered even more vulnerable to Gwynne and Dafydd after the appointment of the social worker who could illegally incarcerate them in their very own language of Heaven.

One of my favourite books is William Blake’s ‘The Marriage of Heaven and Hell’. Blake’s conception of Hell begins not as a place of punishment, but as a source of unrepressed, somewhat Dionysian energy, opposed to the authoritarian and regulated perception of Heaven. Blake’s purpose is to create what he called a “memorable fancy” in order to reveal the repressive nature of conventional morality and institutional religion.

Plate from Marriage of Heaven and Hell; Denbigh Is Unique’ – Dafydd, arguing against the closure of his proud institution circa 1994.

In the most famous part of the book, Blake reveals the Proverbs of Hell. One of which is ‘The Lust Of The Goat Is The Bounty Of God’. Saying this sort of thing got William Blake into a great deal of bother. My how things haven’t changed.

Thomas William Jones, Baron Maelor was born in Ponciau and educated at Ponciau School before becoming a coal miner at the nearby Bersham Colliery. He later attended the Normal College, Bangor and qualified as a teacher. During WWI, Lord Maelor was a conscientious objector, but was granted recognition only to serve in the Army as a  non-combatant. He received a six-month prison sentence by court-martial for refusing to obey orders, on grounds of conscience, which he served at Wormwood Scrubs; under the Home Office Scheme he was transferred to Knutsford Work Centre and then Princetown Work Centre in Dartmoor Prison. 

Jones was Labour MP for Merioneth, 1951-66. He was a poet and a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards, which provides a popular networking opportunity for Dafydd’s mates. Thomas Jones served as President of the International Eisteddford at Llangollen, which provides another networking opportunity for associates of the gang; Ronnie Waterhouse was President of the International Eisteddfod. See previous posts.

Lord Maelor died in an overnight fire at his home in Ponciau in Nov 1984. Which was when it was all kicking off in north Wales – Brown and me refusing to withdraw our complaint about Gwynne the lobotomist and being threatened by D.G.E. Wood et al; Mary Wynch fast heading towards the Master of the Rolls; and Alison Taylor given a formal warning by Gwynedd County Council, then reporting injuries to kids in care to the police, only to be told that her concerns were unjustified. At some point in 1984 George Thomas ended up in hospital because of an STI and there was a panic lest all became public. The Top Docs kept their mouths shut and Leo Abse told a pack of lies to the press as a cover story (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’).

It was concluded that the fire which killed Lord Maelor was begun by a ‘smouldering cigarette’. No evidence for this, just the observation that Lord Maelor was a heavy smoker. The comedian Viv Stanshall, someone else who could have named a few names, also went up in smoke because of a presumed cigarette, in Viv’s case as a result of ‘smoking in bed’. Viv Stanshall died in March 1995, while Nicola Davies QC was reviewing the North Wales Police paperwork – most of which was found to be missing – in order to decide whether an Inquiry should be held into the abuse of kids in north Wales. By 1995 Ronnie Waterhouse had already altered his retirement plans and was on his tour of Wales, dining and staying over with many of the people who’s failures/collusion led to en masse abuse in north Wales/Cheshire. Not that Ronnie knew that he would be Chairing any Inquiry of course…

It may be that it is just about possible to accidentally start a fire big enough to kill one with a lit fag if one carefully drops it into a pile of highly inflammable material. But otherwise it is very difficult. I have shared houses with very heavy smokers – no-one beats Empowered Service Users for heavy smoking – and they certainly burn things but they do not start fires. What happens, even when Smoking In Bed While Tanked Up With Drugs, is that the fag drops onto the bedding and burns a small hole. That is it. I watched this at close quarters for years. It is incredibly annoying because there’s small holes in all the bedding, but it absolutely does not start an inferno from which there is no escape. Cigarettes are not chip pans on fire which have had water thrown over them.

There was a TV advert when I was a teenager which Warned Against The Dangers Of Fires Started By Ciggies. It featured an elderly man with a northern accent coming in at the end of his graft, sitting in his chair and saying ‘Ee it’s been a good day’, as he drops off to sleep, dropping his fag onto the carpet which catches fire and then engulfs him in flames as he slumbers soundly throughout it all. It’s nearly as unlikely as Dewi Pritchard Jones’s explanation for Merfyn the Croesor social worker’s death. That advert was screened at the time of the panic over all those second homes going up in flames in north Wales. Cigarettes or Welsh Nash? Neither, most of it was the trafficking gang and fuckwittery on the part of the security services.

I only know of one example where a discarded lit dog end did start a fire. It was in the drought of 1976 and an old boy in Somerset chucked his lit cigarette butt into a very, very dry hedge. It smouldered away happily as he went off home and turned into a fire a la gorse fires in hot weather and the hedge went up. It was impressive, but even that burnt itself out, it didn’t require the fire brigade. How do I know this? Because it was my grandpa who set that hedge on fire. Not my Tory grandpa who hated Edward du Cann and Tom King, but my other grandpa. My grandmother was appalled at such vandalism and we all were told to keep the identity of the culprit a secret. So if anyone wants to know who was responsible for that blackened hedge in Otterhampton in 1976 it was Grandpa Ford.

I do not believe that these witnesses to the wrongdoing of Dafydd et al who combusted at crucial times had made the sort of mistake that Grandpa Ford did. Hedges and droughts were not involved, people don’t just go up in flames when they’re smoking a fag. Although it would be very convenient for some serious criminals who murdered five witnesses with a firebomb in April 1992 if they did.

 

I’ll take a bit of time to look at the Merioneth constituency at this point, because it did include what later became the tinderbox of the Croeser/Llanfrothen area and Bertrand Russell’s domain.

Between 1852-68, Merioneth was held by the Tories. William Watkin Edward Wynne, (MP, 1852-65) was a landowner and an antiquarian. He was born in Denbighshire, went to Westminster School and Jesus College, Oxford. William Wynne served as High Sheriff of Merionethshire in 1867 and became constable of Harlech Castle in 1874. 

The 1859 General Election was characterised by allegations of coercion against tenant farmers who supported the Liberal challenger David Williams. In 1865, William Wynne’s son William Robert Maurice Wynne, W.R.M. Wynne, succeeded him as the Conservative candidate. The Liberal press in North Wales was optimistic that the Liberals would capture the seat on this occasion and advised Wynne to withdraw. However, the Liberal campaign lacked organisation and very few public meetings were held. W.R.M. Wynne held the seat with a slightly reduced majority, and this has been attributed by the historian Ieuan Gwynedd Jones to ‘a sense of terror’ that had struck the mainly Nonconformist tenant farmers.

In 1868, following the extension of the franchise, some Conservative supporting newspapers believed that the 1867 Reform Act – the Second Reform Act – would actually benefit the Conservatives, especially after a revision of the electoral register resulted in the removal of a large number of electors in the Liberal stronghold of Ffestiniog. Eventually, however, Wynne withdrew rather than face another contest which he was likely to lose.

W.R.M. Wynne made a notable contribution to the cultural life of Wales by donating the Peniarth Manuscripts to the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth.

Following his withdrawal from Parliamentary life, Wynne remained very active within local government. He served as High Sheriff of Merionethshire in 1886 and was Lord Lieutenant of Merionethshire from 1891 until his death. Wynne served as Chairman of the Merionethshire Quarter Sessions, was also a magistrate for Montgomeryshire and Carnarvonshire and served as constable of Harlech Castle. He was also a member of Merionethshire County Council from its formation in 1889 until his death, one of comparatively few Conservative members.

Wynne held extensive estates, totaling over 9,000 acres, primarily in Merionethshire. Although unable to speak Welsh fluently he was said to be on good terms with his tenantry. Some farms on the estate were said, at the time of Wynne’s death, to have been held for forty years without an increase in rent.

Wynne died at Buckingham Gate, London, on 5 February 1909. He was buried in the family vault at Llanegryn and the Dean of Bangor officiated at the funeral service. Tenants from the estate officiated as bearers at the funeral. In a mark of respect for Wynne, the then Liberal MP for Merionethshire, Osmond Williams, cancelled all political engagements in the constituency in the week following his death.

From 1868 until Lord Maelor was elected in 1951, Merioneth was held by the Liberal Party. The Liberal MPs who held the seat were famous names in the history of Wales: David Williams, Samuel Holland, Henry Robertson, T.E. Ellis, Osmond Williams, Henry Hadyn Jones and Emrys Roberts.

 

David Williams was born on the Llyn Peninsula. His younger sister Margaret was married to the notable Welsh preacher, John Breese. Williams stood unsuccessfully as Liberal candidate for Merioneth in 1859 and 1865 before being elected in 1868.

Williams suffered from ill health throughout his time as MP and only attended the Commons to vote on one occasion, for the passing of the Irish Church Disestablishment Bill. Williams died in December 1869 and was succeeded, after a by-election, by Samuel Holland.

David Williams’s eldest son Sir Osmond Williams also represented the seat, 1900-10. David Williams’s youngest son was the noted Top Doctor, Leonard Llewellyn Bulkeley Williams and his youngest daughter Alice Williams was a painter, bard and welfare worker. Alice was the Chair of one of the first British branches of the Women’s Institute at Penrhyndeudreaeth. She died in Chelsea in 1957.

Samuel Holland succeeded David Williams as the MP for Merioneth. Samuel was the son of Samuel, a Liverpool merchant and was born in Liverpool. He was educated in England and Germany and joined his father’s company as an office boy. At eighteen Samuel Holland was made manager of the Rhiwbryfdir quarry near Blaenau Ffestiniog and there conceived the railway from Blaenau Ffestiniog to Porthmadog, then known as Port Madoc.

Holland was appointed High Sheriff of Merionethshire for 1862.

In 1875 Holland was active in setting up the Dr Williams’s School in Dolgellau. He became the first Chairman of the school’s Board of Governors.

 

In 1885 Samuel Holland was succeeded as MP by Henry Robertson. Henry Robertson was a Scottish mining engineer, industrialist and a prolific railway builder; he built railways across north Wales, to transport the products of his industrial concerns. After receiving an offer from a Scottish bank to invest in the North Wales mineral district in 1842, Robertson purchased Brymbo Iron Works and under him it became Brymbo Steelworks, Wrexham. Robertson was co-founder of Beyer-Peacock, a locomotive manufacturer. His son Sir Henry Beyer Robertson was knighted by Queen Victoria for the achievements of his father.

Henry Robertson also served as Liberal MP for Shrewsbury, 1862-65. He resigned his Merioneth seat as a result of his opposition to Gladstone’s Home Rule Bill.

Robertson’s wife was the daughter of a London solicitor. His homes were: 1851: Richmond Place, Chester; 1861: St Mary’s Court, Shrewsbury. In the 1860s, he also bought a large estate in Llandderfel, near Bala, Gwynedd. 1871, 1881: 13, Lancaster Gate, Paddington, London (at the time of the 1871 Census, Robertson was an MP sitting at Westminster). In 1871, he built Pale Hall in Llandderfel, which became his country seat.

 

T.E. Ellis, Tom Ellis, succeeded Henry Robertson as Liberal MP for Merioneth in 1886. Ellis was the leader of Cymru Fydd, a movement aimed at gaining home rule for Wales. He was born near Bala, the son of a tenant farmer. Ellis attended Bala School, where his fellow pupils included Sir O.M Edwards. Owen Morgan Edwards is considered by some to be a hero of Welsh cultural and national life. O.M. Edwards was an historian and educationalist and served as a schools inspector. He was one of a network of people who became very influential in Wales and he wrote prolifically. O.M. Edwards’s son, Ifan ab Owen Edwards, is best known for founding the Urdd Gobaith Cymru (‘Welsh League of Youth’). Both father and son had numerous links with the University of Wales, Welsh literature, poetry and political activism. There is a statue to both of them at Llanuwchllyn, near Bala. See previous posts for details of their extensive network.

 

T.E. Ellis progressed onto what is now Aberystwyth University and then to New College Oxford. On leaving Oxford, Ellis briefly went into journalism and also acted as a private tutor to the son of a South Wales shipping magnate. He then became Private Secretary to Liberal MP, John Brunner. 

After being elected as Liberal MP for Merioneth, Ellis became a spokesman for Welsh concerns and in 1890 in Bala called for a Welsh legislative assembly. Ellis co-operated closely with David Lloyd George and played a major role in the campaign for Welsh disestablishment. When Ellis became a Whip in Gladstone’s Gov’t, he withdrew from Cymru Fydd and the leadership was taken over by Lloyd George and Herbert Lewis (the MP for Flint Boroughs). Ellis became an admirer of Cecil Rhodes, whom he met in Cape Colony.

This is the statue of T.E. Ellis on the main shopping street in Bala:

Will Oxford University Remove Cecil Rhodes Statue?

 

Tom Ellis’s son was the academic Thomas Iorwerth Ellis. Thomas Ellis went to Westminster School and studied at Aberystwyth University and Jesus College, Oxford. He taught at Cardiff School for Boys and then at what became Swansea University. Thomas Ellis was Headmaster of Rhyl County School, 1930-40. In the 1940s he lectured at what became Lampeter and Aberystwyth Universities. Ellis helped to found the New Wales Union in 1941 and was Secretary for 25 years. He served as warden of the Guild of Graduates of the University of Wales for six years and as High Sheriff of Cardiganshire, 1944-45. Ellis was also a member of the Court and Council of the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth and of the National Library of Wales and served as a member of the Governing Body, Representative Body and College of Episcopal Electors of the Church in Wales. He died on 20 April 1970. Ellis moved among all those who kept the lid on Gwynne, Dafydd and the gang. Ellis’s wife Mari was a writer and women’s rights activist. Mari was a graduate of UCNW and later worked at the National Library of Wales.

The MP for Merioneth, 1899-1900, was Sir O.M. Edwards, who was elected unopposed. Edwards did not enjoy Parliamentary life and left the House after one year.

 

Sir Osmond Williams was elected unopposed in 1900 and held Merioneth until 1910. Sir Osmond was the son of David Williams and the brother of Alice. He was born in Ardudwy and was educated at Eton. Osmond married Frances, daughter of John Whitehead Greaves, who was part of the slate industry in north Wales. Greaves worked existing slate deposits in partnership with other entrepreneurs, initially at Glynrhonwy but adding other sites. He used the income this to prospect for new veins which he could exploit exclusively. Greaves opened the Llechwedd Quarry in 1846. His slate won a Class 1 Prize Medal at the Great Exhibition of 1851 and orders flowed in, including a contract to supply Kensington Palace.

 

Sir Henry Haydn Jones succeeded Sir Osmond as MP and retained the seat until 1945, for some of the time unopposed. Sir Henry was born in Ruthin, the son of Joseph David Jones, a schoolmaster in the town and a Welsh musician and composer. After the early death of his father, Haydn Jones was brought up by uncles at Towyn (now Tywyn) where he was educated at the Board School & Academy. In 1903 he married Barbara, the daughter of Lewis D. Jones, a Welsh-born Chicago ironmonger and quarry owner.

In 1889 Haydn Jones was elected as one of the first members of Merionethshire County Council, representing the Towyn Urban District. A year later he was the Chair of the Council. He was eventually elected an Alderman.

In 1909 the Bryn Eglwys slate quarry, the Abergynolwyn estate and village and Talyllyn Railway came up for sale. Aware of the distress which would be caused by permanent closure of the quarry, Sir Haydn bought the lot himself in 1911 for £5250 and became the sole owner of what became the Abergynolwyn Slate and Slab Company. In 1935 he extended his quarry ownership, leasing the Aberllefenni Slate Quarry in the neighbouring Corris district.

The quarrying and slate business did well until the early 1920s when demand fell and the Bryn Eglwys quarry was only kept open by pillaring the easy to obtain slate rather than by digging out new underground chambers. At times there was a three-day week, but the quarry soldiered on until 1941 when Sir Haydn’s lease expired. He continued on a yearly lease until 1946 when a roof fall caused by the continued pillaring closed the quarry for good.

By buying Bryn Eglwys, Haydn Jones had become effectively owner of the Talyllyn Railway built to carry slate from the quarry to Tywyn. After the quarry collapse and closure in 1946, the railway had little reason to continue operating. Haydn Jones declared that the railway would remain open while he remained alive and it continued to run until 1950. After his death his widow reached an arrangement with L.T.C. Rolt and his associates allowing them to lease the railway. Today the railway operates as a tourist attraction.

In 1945 Emrys Roberts was elected for Merioneth and held the seat until 1951. Emrys Roberts was born at Caernarfon and educated at Caernarfon Grammar School, at the now Abersytwyth University where he graduated in law and then Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, followed by the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva. Emrys served in the RAF during WWII, reaching the rank of Squadron Leader. He was called to the bar at Gray’s Inn in 1944. Sir William Mars-Jones, Ronnie Waterhouse’s mate and Dafydd’s umbrella for many years, was a member of Gray’s Inn.

Roberts was sometime Chairman of the Welsh Liberal Party. He was Chairman of the Development Board for Rural Wales, 1977-81 and a member of a large number of other public bodies in Wales including being Chairman of the Eisteddfod Council. He was active in the Parliament for Wales Campaign launched in 1950, Chaired by Lady Megan Lloyd George but by the time the campaign got into top gear both he and Lady Megan had lost their Parliamentary seats. So the other paedophiles’ friends from a previous era, such as Goronwy Roberts, had to take over.

In 1950, Emrys Roberts increased his majority after a campaign invigorated by a meeting addressed by the veteran Liberal, Lord Samuel.

The Plaid Cymru candidate in Merioneth for a number of elections in the 1950s and 60s was Gwynfor Evans. Gwynfor Evans was the first person to be elected as a Plaid MP, for Carmarthen in 1966. Gwynfor knew about the organised abuse in Wales and when he stood as the Plaid candidate for Merioneth he will have known about the activities of Bertrand Russell and some of the summer visitors to Croeser, as well as the rather high price local people paid if they Crossed Gwynne and Dafydd’s Path.

 

The immediate post-war period continued to be difficult for the Liberal Party in terms of political positioning. Together with Lady Megan Lloyd George and Edgar Granville, Emrys Roberts was one of a group of MPs determined to stand up against what they saw as the Party’s drift to the Right under the leadership of Clement Davies and to save its Radical soul. In 1950, Emrys Roberts criticised Davies saying that the party was being badly led and that Davies should be consulting the Deputy Leader (Lady Megan) rather than the Chief Whip on matters of policy in the first instance. As a reward for the pro-Labour leanings of Emrys and Lady Megan (more of which in a minute) and support of the Labour Gov’t in Parliamentary votes, the Conservatives decided to renew their opposition against Lady Megan in Anglesey and Emrys Roberts in Merioneth and their intervention was a critical factor in the loss of these two long-standing Liberal seats. The Conservatives declined to stand candidates in the constituencies held by Clement Davies, Roderic Bowen and Rhys Hopkin Morris, who had the reputation of being more right-wing, all of whom held their seats. After the 1951 General Election, a number of leading Radicals gave up on the Liberal Party with Lady Megan and Edgar Granville defecting to Labour, followed soon after by other former MPs Dingle Foot – Michael Foot’s brother – and Wilfrid Roberts. Dingle Foot QC was Solicitor General in Harold Wilson’s Gov’t, which will have involved concealing much wrongdoing, including that in north Wales.

Emrys Roberts did not join the Labour Party but he largely withdrew from up active politics and devoted himself to a business career. He later became the Director of the Branded Textiles Group. However he did not lose his interest in politics. In 1982 at the height of the difficulties afflicting the Liberal/SDP Alliance over seats negotiations and the dip in support for the Alliance in the polls, Emrys Roberts wrote to The Times proposing that the Alliance parties should have a single, joint, leader for the next general election and that there should be a merger of the parties once the election was over. He reminded readers that in 1951 he and Lady Megan Lloyd George had entered into talks with Mandy’s granddad Herbert Morrison, proposing a working relationship between the Labour Gov’t, with its majority of eight and the Liberal Party which had nine MPs. According to Emrys Roberts, Morrison was well disposed to the idea but Attlee’s decision to dissolve Parliament and call the Oct 1951 General Election put an end to it. Roberts added that the Lib-Lab Pact concluded between David Steel and Jim Callaghan in 1977-78 achieved what he and Lady Megan had been trying to do in 1951.

 

Readers will have noticed that I don’t have to indulge my interest in an earlier geological era for long before I arrive in the sphere of latter day paedophiles’ friends. Emrys Roberts began his life at the knee of the Ancients but well before he died, he was cheek by jowl with Jeremy Thorpe, Cyril Smith, Clement Freud, Dr Death et al. These complete idiots were part of the mass of rocks which could not be shifted when some people tried to get to the bottom of the most dreadful abuse of vulnerable people and associated serious crime in the 1980s and 90s. People died, there were corpses turning up all over north Wales. I am not that old but I knew some of those people; the kids who suffered so terribly in the children’s homes of north Wales were my age. We’re not talking orphanages for Victorian waifs here, we’re talking about people who were kids in the 1970s and young adults in the 1980s. Some of the old crocks who did it are still alive and snuggling down in their comfy chairs in villages across north Wales with the proverbial paned and a slice of bara brith, relying upon the network to get their grandchildren a place at medical school or a job as a social worker. They are not harmless old Taids and Nains, these were vicious bastards who ensured that the most terrible suffering continued because they were making a lot of money out of other old gits who wanted to have sex with children.

Ooh here’s Taid on the dresser, everyone knew Taid:

If anyone disagreed with Taid they were exterminated…

From 1968-1977, Emrys Roberts was Chairman of the Mid-Wales Development Corporation and then Chairman of the Development Board for Rural Wales from 1977–1981. Roberts was a member of the WDA, 1977-81 – who’s reputation for corruption remains unsurpassed to this day (see previous posts) and Director of the Development Corporation of Wales, 1978–81.

The committees upon which Emrys Roberts sat and his interests are reflected in his correspondence and papers, which are deposited in the National Library of Wales. They include those relating to the National Eisteddfod, 1959–76; the Development Board for Rural Wales, 1973–81; and Wales and West North Television. Emrys Roberts was also Vice-President of the Honourable Society of Cymmrodorion, which seems to be simply a group of paedophiles’ friends who give medals to each other.

It would be entertaining to chug over to the National Library if I was still near Aberystwyth and take a look at Emrys’s papers to see if I could spot any mention of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. However I know from previous digging that whereas people were more than happy to drop Dafydd’s name at every opportunity until the mid-1970s, after that he became so embarrassing that no-one would mention him. But they wouldn’t stop his wrongdoing and they didn’t actually tell him to take a running jump when he rang them up/dropped in on them/wrote to them. Instead they took orders from him, having been so deeply compromised as a result of the history that I have been blogging about. This was a relatively small, incestuous collection of silly, vain, pompous people who landed Wales deep in a slurry pit as a result of their grandiose ambitions and corruption.

Emrys Roberts died in October 1990. So he lasted long enough to give Dafydd et al a helping hand right up until the North Wales Police investigation into the possible presence of the paedophile ring was launched.

The combusting Lord Maelor held Merioneth between 1951 and 1966 and faced a number of challenges from Gwynfor Evans as Plaid candidate. In 1964 the Plaid candidate was Elystan Morgan. Elystan Morgan is yet another lawyer who is an Aber graduate who has willingly served Dafydd and the gang throughout his life. Elystan Morgan is nothing if not persistent. He stood as the Plaid candidate for Wrexham twice in 1955 and again in 1959 and after having no luck in Merioneth in 1964, joined the Labour Party and in 1966 was elected as MP for Cardiganshire. He served as a Minister in the Home Office in Wilson’s Gov’t. Elystan Morgan is a member of Gray’s Inn along with the best of Dafydd’s mates. He was Chairman of the Welsh Parliamentary Labour Party, 1971-74. After losing his seat in Feb 1974, Elystan concentrated on his legal career but in 1979 Elystan was back in action, trying to become the Labour MP for Anglesey. Elystan Morgan was given a peerage in 1981, becoming Lord Elystan-Morgan. He was a recorder, 1983-87 and a Circuit judge, 1987-2003. Elystan Morgan was President of Aberystwyth University, 1997-2007. See previous posts for more gen on Elystan Morgan.

 

At the 1966 General Election, Merioneth was won by Labour’s William Edwards, who retained the seat until Feb 1974. William Henry Edwards, Will Edwards, was a lawyer who was born in Amlwch, Anglesey. His father was a tenant farmer and his mother was a seamstress. Will Edwards was educated at the local Grammar School and at Sir Thomas Jones’ Comprehensive School. He read Law at  Liverpool University and was of a similar vintage to those other two well known alumni of Liverpool University, Dafydd and Lucille. Will then studied at the London College of Law. He became a solicitor in Bala and visiting lecturer at Liverpool College of Commerce.

Edwards contested West Flintshire in the 1964 General Election. After his election for Merioneth in 1996, he became PPS to Secretary of State for Wales, the Windbag’s mate Lord Cledwyn. Will Edwards became a front-bench spokesman on Welsh affairs, in a team headed by the molester George Thomas, but he was sacked by Harold Wilson in 1972 over his support for entry into the EEC. Edwards lost his seat in the Feb 1974 General Election to Plaid’s Dafydd Elis Thomas and was unable to regain the seat in the October 1974 General Election.

Will Edwards was then appointed to lead Labour’s campaign in Wales for a “yes” vote in the referendum to remain in the EEC. In 1981, he was selected to fight Ynys Mon (Anglesey), but withdrew in March 1983, shortly before that year’s General Election, in protest at Labour’s policies of withdrawal from the EEC, unilateral nuclear disarmament and closure of US military bases in the UK.

Will Edwards was a member of the Historic Buildings Council for Wales, 1971-76 and began to edit The Solicitor’s Diary for Waterlow’s in 1973. In 1987, a Law Society tribunal struck him off the roll of solicitors for infringing the solicitors’ accounts rules and improper use of clients’ funds. In the light of how solicitors in north Wales were conducting themselves at the time, Will Edwards must have either been very bad indeed or the other paedophiles’ friends turned on him for some reason.

In later life, Will Edwards suffered from diabetes and heart disease. He died in the Wrexham Maelor Hospital in 2007. Will wasn’t refused NHS treatment on the grounds that he Hadn’t Taken Responsibility then. He lived long enough to contribute to the efforts to ensure that matters Dafydd and the trafficking ring remained safely buried.

 

When Will died, an obituary was published in ‘The Guardian’ which painted an interesting portrait of Will who nicked his clients’ money and concealed a paedophile gang. Here are the highlights:

An engaging and talented man… He got into trouble for taking political life seriously, but provoked greater difficulties by not taking it seriously enough…Edwards…was a young solicitor of considerable charm…He became well known in Welsh politics, while his energetic social life made him a popular figure with colleagues and journalists who did not think that Westminster duties were incompatible with having a good time. That attitude raised fewer eyebrows then than perhaps it would today, but combined with a reluctance to suck up to his political superiors meant Edwards was looked on with some suspicion…He was also passionately pro-Europe…There were other problems closer to home. In Welsh-speaking rural Wales, MPs have traditionally been people of a respectable, moderately radical character…But in an area of very conservative social views, Edwards’ displays of affluence – like the personalised car number plates – were considered inappropriate. Disparaging comments were made…there was more than a bit of swagger as he walked down the main street of Bala. Party colleagues reported indications that he was not being assiduous enough.

It would be wrong to suggest that Edwards did not care about his constituents. He argued passionately on their behalf on specific issues, but it was difficult to avoid the impression that he found the details of political life less than wholly absorbing. That played into the hands of a politician who had been enthusiastically canvassing Merioneth… Plaid Cymru’s Dafydd Elis Thomas… Later in the 80s, financial transgressions got him struck off as a solicitor by the Law Society. While still relatively young, he was hit by ill-health, including diabetes and, later, heart disease. It was a sad, premature decline and a contrast to the days when his verve and sense of mischief were at everyone’s service.’

Everyone is rude about Dafydd El shamelessly toadying to Royals, but I don’t think that he has yet been caught stealing other people’s money only to be excused by having the qualities of ‘verve and a sense of mischief’.

Who was the obituarist who considered that helping yourself to your clients’ dosh is just part of life’s rich tapestry and it most post unreasonable of the constituents not to vote for an MP who robbed them, being a bunch of old stick in the muds in Bala? It was the late Patrick Hannan, the Welsh journo and TV/radio broadcaster. Hannan went to school with Sir Anthony Hopkins and then to Aberystwyth University. He worked on the ‘Western Mail’ in the 1960s and joined BBC Wales in 1970. Hannan presented ‘Wales Today’ and then spent 13 years as the BBC’s political correspondent in Wales and had a series on BBC Radio Wales. He broadcast on Radio 4 with his colleague Peter Stead and produced documentary programmes for BBC 2, BBC Wales and HTV. Hannan married Menna Richards, who became Director of BBC Wales. He died in 2009. One of Hannan’s books was published by Gomer Press. Hannan was the son of a Top Doctor in south Wales.

A few observations: Sir Anthony Hopkins came over all Welsh at about the time of the Waterhouse Report and its aftermath. He waxed lyrical about being Welsh and there was much media hype as to Sir Anthony’s Welshness and his work with the Snowdonia Society and other Welsh Things. Sir Anthony’s burst of patriotism didn’t last long. Once the PR job was done, he went to live in the US – where he had spent many years previously – and even took US citizenship. See previous posts.

Among the frantic re-creating of Wales’s image during the 1990s and the early years of the new millennium when there was so much adverse publicity about child abuse in north Wales and even a possible VIP paedophile ring, many Old Favourites written by north Wales writers from yesteryear were republished, particularly by Kate Roberts. Kate Roberts grew up in Caernarfonshire, worked as a school teacher for a while and then married and went to live in Denbigh, where she spent the rest of her life. She and her husband were involved with Plaid and Welsh language campaigning and they owned a small publishing house in Denbigh. It was that publisher, Gwasg Gee, which republished many of Kate’s works and associated literature, as well as Gomer Press. See post ‘Feet In Chains’.

Menna Richards attended the funeral of John Owen, a schoolteacher and scriptwriter for Welsh language TV, who was found dead in 2001, days before he was due to stand trial for a series of sex offences against children. When John Owen was initially charged there was a great deal of How Very Dare You and Standing By Him. After his death, as more and more former pupils and their relatives came forward and said that John had abused them, they had complained but nothing had been done, gradually the How Very Dare You turned into admissions of Er Yes, We Knew. It seemed that a great many people knew about John Owen and many, many complaints had been made about him over decades

Hannan and Menna will of course Not Have Known About Jimmy Savile…

Hannan’s own obits were full of comments about the fearless reporter who was not afraid to take on the powerful. Yet Hannan and Menna couldn’t say one word about a gang of old paedophiles in north Wales who were murdering witnesses.

  • One of Hannan’s own books was A Useful Fiction: Adventures in British Democracy (2009).

 

In the General Election of 1970 the Plaid candidate for Merioneth was Dafydd Wigley. He polled very well, but not enough to topple Emrys.

Dafydd El held Merioneth until 1983, when the seat disappeared in a reorganisation. In 1979, Dafydd El’s nearest rival was, incredibly enough for that constituency at that time, the Conservative candidate Robert Harvey. Robert Harvey was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford. He was foreign affairs leader writer for the Torygraph, 1987-1991 and assistant editor of ‘The Economist’, 1981-1983.

Harvey first stood for Parliament, unsuccessfully, at Caernarfon in Oct 1974, where he was beaten by Wigley. In the Conservative landslide of 1983, Harvey was elected as the MP for Clwyd South West, a constituency that only existed between 1983-97.  It was created from the constituencies of Denbigh, Wrexham and Merioneth and was not a safe seat, it was always up for grabs. Harvey became a member of the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee. He served for one term before his defeat at the 1987 General Election by Labour’s Martyn Jones.  

Clwyd South West was never fought by anyone who was going to say a word about the trafficking gang, although one wonders why an Eton educated Torygraph journo would want to become an MP in north Wales, either in Gwynedd or Clwyd.

Sir Peter Morrison was a personal friend of Thatch and was elected as the Tory MP for Chester in Feb 1974. Morrison’s brother Charles was a Tory MP and Charles was a big fan of Ted Heath. Peter Morrison’s father, Lord Margadale, had been a Tory politician. The Morrisons were a landed family with numerous members of their extended family also active in Tory politics. Peter Morrison abused kids in north Wales, including some at Bryn Estyn.

 

 

To return to events at the constituency of Wrexham in elections. Some familiar faces were circulating. The Plaid candidate for Wrexham in 1955 was Elystan Morgan.

In 1959, Labour’s Idwal Jones had a majority of 24.07% (12,957) over the Conservative and National Liberal candidate. Elystan stood for Plaid again.

In 1964, Idwal had a majority of 25.27% (13,238) over the Conservative and National Liberal candidate. The Plaid candidate was John Richard Thomas.

In 1966, Idwal had a majority of 34.01% (17,443) over the Conservative candidate.

Elystan didn’t rear his head in Wrexham after 1964, because he had of course joined the Labour Party which led to him being elected in Cardigan.

 

In 1970, Tom Ellis was the Labour candidate for Wrexham and won the seat with a majority of 28.23% (15,440) over the Conservative candidate. Ellis was born in Rhosllanennerchrugog and was educated at Ruabon Grammar School. In 1957 he became manager of the nearby Bersham Colliery. Ellis undertook further studies at the Universities of Wales and Nottingham. He was a President of Wrexham Fabian Society.

Ellis first stood for Parliament without success in Flint West in 1966. He was elected for Wrexham in 1970, and re-elected in Feb 1974, Oct 1974 and May 1979. Ellis also served as an indirectly elected MEP, 1975-1979.

Ellis was one of the core handful of Woy-esque Labour MPs who were prepared to leave the Labour Party without the Gang of Three of Dr Death, Bill Rodgers and Shirl. Ellis contemplated joining the Liberals. In 1981, Ellis became one of the founding members of the SDP. Ellis was one of three Welsh MPs to join the new Party and he was elected to serve as the President of Welsh Social Democrats. As a result of boundary changes, Ellis did not contest Wrexham in 1983, instead he stood in the new constituency of Clwyd South West, finishing second to the Tory Robert Harvey. Ellis stood again in Clwyd South West in 1987, finishing third. After the merger of the SDP and the Liberals, Ellis stood for the then Social and Liberal Democrats at the 1989 Pontypridd by-election.

In Feb 1974, Tom Ellis had a majority of 22.32% (13,083) over the Conservative candidate. In Oct 1974, Ellis had a majority of 28.96% (16,366) over his nearest rival which was then the Liberal candidate. In 1979, Tom had a majority of 19.66% (12,149) over the Conservative candidate.

In 1983, John Marek won the seat for Labour, with a majority of 0.9% (424) over the Conservative candidate Cynthia Kay Wood. John Marek held Wrexham for Labour until 2001. Marek stood down after he was elected to represent Wrexham in the National Assembly of Wales in 1999. This was initially for the Labour Party, but he was deselected in 2003 and formed Forward Wales, for whom he was re-elected. In 2004, Ron Davies of the Moments of Madness and Looking for Badgers resigned from the Labour Party, joined Forward Wales, subsequently standing unsuccessfully as a candidate. Marek was defeated at the 2007 election.

Marek lectured in maths at Aberystwyth before becoming an MP. He was elected a member of Ceredigion District Council in 1979 and served until 1983; he was Chair of its finance sub-committee, 1982-83.

Marek joined the Assembly in 1999 and caused much havoc. In 2000, Marek was elected as Deputy Presiding Officer against the candidate preferred by the Labour leadership. This move and his frequent criticisms of the Labour-led Wrexham County Borough led to his deselection as the Labour Party’s candidate for the National Assembly elections of 1 May 2003. Marek then stood as a candidate for the John Marek Independent Party and defeated the official Labour Party candidate, Lesley Griffiths, a former secretary of his and the most loyal paedophiles’ friend. It was later that year Marek formed Forward Wales. He ran for re-election in the 2007 Welsh Assembly election, but was defeated by Lesley Griffiths. On 29 March 2010, Marek joined the Tory Party and he was later confirmed as the Party’s candidate for the 2011 Welsh Assembly election, where he again came second to Griffiths in the Wrexham constituency.

In 2006 Marek was appointed a Vice President of Wrexham A.F.C. by new owners Nev Dickens and Geoff Moss and remained a Vice President until the club passed into the ownership of the Wrexham Supporters Trust.

Marek’s majority over the Conservative candidate in 1987 was 8.3% (4152). Owen Paterson was the Tory candidate for Wrexham in 1992; John Marek had a majority over Paterson of 13.1% (6716). Paterson subsequently became the Tory MP for North Shropshire in 1997, a seat which he currently retains. In 1997, Marek’s majority over the Conservative candidate was 32.3% (11,622).

 

Ian Lucas, a lawyer who grew up in Gateshead and went to New College, Oxford, won Wrexham for Labour in 2001, with a majority of 30.5% (9188) over the Conservative candidate. Ian remains Wrexham’s MP.

In 2005 and 2010, the Liberal candidate for Wrexham was Tom Rippeth, a Professor of Oceanography at Bangor University. Tom Rippeth and one of his friends moved into the house with whom I and other witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd and the gang used to share in 1987 and caused much grief and trouble as Dafydd’s war against us was underway. I have been told that Rippeth knew that I was someone who had been targeted by the gang back in 1987 and Rippeth found that he could do very nicely out of this. See previous posts.

2010 was a good year for unscrupulous bastards challenging Ian Lucas at the polls. The Plaid candidate that year was Arfon Jones, who as a police constable in the 1970s, chauffeured the senior officer Gordon Anglesea to the venues where Anglesea molested kids in care. Arfon is now the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales and has starred in many of my previous blog posts…

 

Denbigh.

The constituency of Denbigh existed between 1918 and 1983. During the years of Gwynne and Dafydd Denbigh didn’t enjoy the huge majorities enjoyed by Dafydd Wigley in Caernarfon, but for decades the sitting Tory MP proved impossible to unseat, although many of those we know and love tried their luck.

Sir Henry Morris-Jones was the MP for Denbigh, 1929-50. Morris-Jones was a Top Doctor who was born in Waunfawr, near Caernarfon. He was educated at Menai Bridge Grammar School, Anglesey and St. Mungo’s College of Medicine in Glasgow. In 1931 Morris-Jones married Leila Paget-Marsland, a widow. They were not blessed with children.

Morris-Jones qualified as a Top Doctor in 1906 from Glasgow, gaining a further licence for surgery from Edinburgh and was for twenty years a GP in Colwyn Bay. During the WWI, Morris-Jones served in the 2nd Battalion of the Worcestershire Regiment as a medical officer in France. He later served as Chairman of his division of the BMA and of the Colwyn Bay Medical Society.

Morris-Jones took an active part in the public life of the town of Colwyn Bay and the County of Denbigh. He was elected a member of Colwyn Bay Urban District Council, later becoming its Chairman. He was High Sheriff Designate of the County, 1929–30 and also served as a member of the County Council. Morris-Jones was also appointed a Deputy Lieutenant of Denbighshire and was a JP. 

At the 1929 General Election, Morris-Jones was nominated to be the candidate for Denbigh and on 4 April he was selected by the local party to stand in succession to the sitting MP, Ellis William Davies, who was resigning on grounds of ill-health. Morris-Jones had a straight fight against the Tory, Captain Alan Crosland Graham of Ruthin, the Political Private Secretary to Lord Balfour. The Liberal party improved its position nationally in 1929, but it did not make the breakthrough it had hoped for under the leadership of a reinvigorated Lloyd George. In this climate and without a Labour opponent in Denbigh, Morris-Jones was able to increase the Liberal majority from 1,421 to 8,189.

While in Parliament, Morris-Jones took a particular interest in public health and agriculture both nationally and as they affected Denbighshire. He was an honorary Treasurer of the Parliamentary Medical Group from time of election in 1929 and was later appointed as a member of the Committee of Trustees set up under the MPs Pensions Act.

In 1931 an economic crisis led to the formation of a National Liberal Gov’t led by Labour PM Ramsey MacDonald, initially supported by the Conservative and Liberal parties. A group of Liberal MPs were concerned to ensure that the National Government had a wide cross-party base and formed the Liberal National Party to support MacDonald’s administration. Morris-Jones joined this group and thereafter sat in the Commons as a Liberal National. At the 1931 General Election, Morris-Jones was unopposed in Denbigh. So on 16 October Morris-Jones retained his Parliamentary seat as one of 65 MPs returned unopposed.

In 1932, Morris-Jones was appointed an Assistant Government Whip and he held that post until 1935. From 1935 to 1937 he was a Lord Commissioner of the Treasury. In May 1937 when Neville Chamberlain succeeded Stanley Baldwin as PM, Morris-Jones was offered the position of Chief Whip to the Liberal National group after the formation of the new Government but preferred ‘for personal reasons’ to return to the backbenches.

As the prospect of another General Election approached, the Liberal Party policy of not opposing sitting Liberal National MPs came increasingly under threat. In Denbighshire there was a willingness to challenge Morris-Jones, who was seen more and more as a surrogate Tory. At a meeting of the Liberal Association on 24 October 1935, it was agreed to adopt John Cledwyn Davies, the Director of Education for Denbighshire and the Lloyd George Coalition Liberal MP for Denbigh from 1922-23. Morris-Jones refused to stand down and the two members of the liberal family fought each other in the General Election in November 1935. The Conservatives supported Morris-Jones and the intervention of a Labour candidate helped take votes away from Davies. Across the country the Liberal National vote remained steady and Morris-Jones held the seat with a majority of over 5,000.

For brief period during the WWII, commencing in February 1942, Morris-Jones decided to leave the Liberal Nationals. In July 1942 he was signatory to a motion which while praising the armed forces indicated a lack of confidence in the Government’s conduct of the war. It was later recorded that Morris-Jones had rejoined the official Liberals; however at the time Morris-Jones described himself as having become an Independent. In the end the political and electoral realities overcame the sense of Liberal family and Morris-Jones rejoined the Liberal Nationals in March 1943, presumably sensing or calculating it would be the safest way to enable him to continue as an MP.

In 1937 Morris-Jones was Honorary Treasurer and Honorary Secretary of the Reception Committee co-ordinating the Royal Visit to North Wales. As part of the coronation celebrations the King and Queen were to visit North Wales in July 1937. They were to open an extension to the National Library of Wales at Aber and and make a ceremonial visit to Caernarfon Castle. At this time Lloyd George was Constable of the Caernarfon Castle and Morris-Jones was involved in discussion and debate with him and others about the arrangements for the visit; some bad-tempered exchanges took place over the choice of music for the Royal programme which Lloyd George felt was not up to the dignity of the occasion.

In 1941-2, Morris-Jones served as Chairman of the Welsh Parliamentary Party. Liberal MPs from Wales had always regarded themselves as a separate Parliamentary entity, certainly from as early as 1886. They saw their role as promoting distinctly Welsh causes and being the party of Welsh nationalism. This role diminished with the decline of Liberalism in Wales during the 20th century and establishment of Plaid Cymru in 1925, but there remained a sentiment at Westminster that Welsh parliamentarians should meet together in the interests of their country.

Morris-Jones was also a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards. He also served as a member of the Governing Body of the Church in Wales, 1950-62.

At the 1945 General Election,  Morris-Jones faced official Liberal and Labour opposition in Denbigh but was supported as the Government candidate by the Conservatives. With the opposition split, he held on. Although he stood down as an MP at the 1950 General Election, Morris-Jones remained loyal to the Liberal Nationals, or National Liberal Party as it became known after 1948. He served as Vice Chairman of the Executive of the National Liberal Party in 1952 and the following year (1953–54) he went on to be Chairman.

The National Liberals again held Denbigh against split opposition in 1950, albeit with a reduced majority. It remained a National Liberal seat until 1959 when a Conservative candidate was put up, successfully retaining it. It then stayed Conservative until the constituency was abolished in 1983.

As a Top Doctor, Morris-Jones took a keen interest in the legislation to set up the NHS. He was not in favour, taking the side of the professional organisations in opposing measures to force doctors into the NHS. By 1948 he was much more closely aligned with the Conservatives and their thinking. That Morris-Jones was a man of traditional views in relation to medical matters can be deduced from his association with the campaign to prevent the sale of contraceptives from slot machines, as a ‘temptation to youth’. Dafydd hadn’t yet arrived at the North Wales Hospital when Morris-Jones was worrying about those slot machines.

In the late 1940s, Morris-Jones wrote to ‘The Times’ expressing his reservations about the creation of the NHS. A year after the introduction of the NHS, Morris-Jones was again writing to ‘The Times’ to highlight what he saw as the decline in status of the GP. He believed that there was evidence to show that after a year of the NHS there had been a deterioration in the art of medicine as practised by GPs, an expansion of their workload, an increase in bureaucracy, difficulties in seeing cases through and getting patients into hospitals.

My how Top Docs complaints haven’t changed.

Although Seriously Grim was de rigueur for asylums at the time, throughout the post-war years the North Wales Hospital seemed to have a reputation for being much grimmer than most. It will have originally been built to help poor wretches, but it certainly lost its way and I suspect that was the case during at least the latter years of Morris-Jones’s time as the MP for Denbigh.

In 1945, the Labour candidate who opposed Morris-Jones was none other than Sir William Mars-Jones, Ronnie Waterhouse’s colleague and friend. Mars-Jones came from a Denbighshire farming family and made it big as a lawyer and then a High Court judge in London. He retained close links with north Wales throughout his life and provided a very big umbrella for Dafydd and the gang throughout his life, assisted by the rest of the Mars-Jones’s in north Wales. See previous posts.

In 1950, after Morris-Jones stood down, Emlyn Garner Evans was elected as the National Liberal MP for Denbigh, having a 2.69% (1209) majority over Glyn Tegai Hughes, the Liberal candidate.

Emlyn Garner Evans was born in Llangollen and read law at Aber. He went onto Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, by which time he was already an active member of the Liberal Party. Evans was President of the Cambridge Union and of the Cambridge University Liberal Club. He stood as the Liberal Party candidate for the City of Chester in 1935 but did not win. In 1936 Evans spoke in a debate with Harold Wilson and in the same year he became President of the Union of University Liberal Societies and was elected to the Liberal Party Council.

Evans became Editor of The New Commonwealth Quarterly, a journal published by the New Commonwealth Society which studied international relations, in 1935. (Churchill was Chairman of the institute’s British section from 1936.) Evans also helped to found the World Youth Congress in 1936, and was elected President of its political section in 1936 and re-elected in 1938. On the outbreak of WWII Evans joined the RAF and served overseas in North Africa and Italy.

At the end of WWII Evans was adopted as Liberal candidate for Denbigh and unsuccessfully fought the seat at the 1945 General Election. He resumed his legal training and was called to the Bar at Gray’s Inn in 1946. William Mars-Jones was a member of Gray’s Inn. When a joint statement of principles of Liberals and Conservatives was published in a pamphlet called “Design for Freedom” in February 1947, Evans was one of the signatories. Although the full merger was not agreed, the Liberal Nationals were reorganised into the National Liberal Party later in 1947, and Evans joined.

When Morris-Jones announced his retirement Evans was selected as his replacement by the local National Liberal Association in April 1948; he then attended several local branches of the Conservative Association (with whom the National Liberals were in alliance) and committed himself to defeating the Labour Government. Evans was adopted as candidate in November 1949.

The election saw some confusion as the National Liberals claimed the official mantle of Liberalism. Evans faced a Liberal opponent and won the seat with a narrow majority of 1,209 over the Liberal candidate Glyn Tegai Hughes.

Glyn Tegai Hughes was a scholar and a literary critic. He was the son of a Welsh Methodist Minister and a Methodist preacher himself. Glyn Tegai will have known George Thomas, who was a very high profile Methodist. Glyn Tegai was educated at Newtown and Towyn County Grammar School, the Liverpool Institute and Manchester Grammar School. After WWII, he went to Corpus Christie College, Cambridge. Glyn Tegai served as President of Cambridge University Liberal Club and was Chairman of the Union of University Liberal Societies. In 1950 Hughes was a founding member of Undeb Cymru Fydd, the all-Party organisation that was created to campaign for a Parliament for Wales. Glyn Tegai served as Chairman of Undeb Cymru Fydd, 1968–70. He served as Chairman of the Liberal Party in Wales and during the 1959 General Election campaign he featured on TV with Robin Day. Day was one of Ronnie Watehouse’s closest friends; Waterhouse himself was of course from an influential Liberal family in north Wales.

In 1967 Glyn Tegai became a Member of the Welsh Arts Council, serving until 1976. In 1971 he was appointed National Governor for Wales BBC and Chairman of the Broadcasting Council for Wales, serving in these roles until 1979. In 1977 Glyn Tegai became Vice-President of the North Wales Arts Association, serving until 1994. In 1980 he became a Member of the Board of the Channel Four Television Company, on which he sat until 1987. In 1981 Glyn Tegai became a member of the S4C Authority, serving util 1987. In 1988 he became Chairman of the Welsh Broadcasting Trust, serving until 1996.

In 1951 Glyn Tegai was appointed as a lecturer in English at Basle University, Switzerland. In 1953 he was appointed as a lecturer in Comparative Literary Studies at Manchester University.  From 1964–1989 Glyn Tegai was Warden of the Gregynog Centre, University of Wales.

 

Garner Evans was re-elected for Denbigh in the 1951 General Election with a majority of 7,915 over the Labour candidate, which was Idwal Jones. 

Glyn Tegai didn’t contest the 1951 election, because he was working in Switzerland at the time.

 

In Parliament Garner Evans was made Secretary to the Parliamentary Committee on Atomic Energy. Dafydd worked at Windscale in the 1950s, where he gained knowledge of wrongdoing and cover-ups at Gov’t level that stood him in good stead (see previous posts). Garner Evans pressed for more help for his constituents: in December 1953 he stated that the best aid the Government could give to agriculture in Wales was a marketing policy and in November 1954 he insisted that the Home Secretary could not manage Welsh affairs without additional Ministerial help and called for new Minister of State in the Lords. Early in 1955, Evans was one of six MPs to visit the British Army of the Rhine and bring back a report calling for National Servicemen to be paid the same as the regular Army.

Meanwhile, hundreds and hundreds of people were locked up in the asylum on the outskirts of Denbigh, in appalling conditions, invisible to the outside world, their deaths at the hands of those ‘caring’ for them going unnoticed and no doubt undocumented.

 

There was some local criticism of Garner Evans. In December 1954 an extraordinary meeting of the Conservative Central Council in the constituency was called to hear a report on a complaint against him: it was alleged that he had addressed a meeting in Llanrwst when “not in a fit condition to do so”. The meeting passed a vote recording its displeasure, but also adopted Evans as its candidate for the next election. A model of business which was applied to Dafydd throughout his entire career, even when Dafydd’s condition was so unfit that it was lethal.

The return of Glyn Tegai Hughes ensured that Garner Evans’ majority was cut in the 1955 General Election to 10.94% (4,641). The Labour candidate for Denbigh that year was Robyn Lewis.

Evans spoke in January 1956 in favour of encouraging the Welsh language through education and broadcasting, arguing that Welsh nationalism was caused by fear of the loss of language and culture. When the Government appointed a Minister with responsibility for Welsh Affairs, Evans echoed Labour complaints about the lowly status of the new Minister and described his powers as “nebulous”.

Continuing concerns at Garner Evans’ political and personal performance both in Parliament and in the constituency prompted a meeting of the Conservative Central Council to be called in May 1958. Despite Garner Evans pleading to the meeting that “I have spent pretty well all my life trying to bring Liberals and Conservatives together”, the delegates passed a motion of no confidence in Evans. The association President then said that he would then move to discuss with the National Liberals how to select a candidate acceptable to both parties. In November 1958 Conservative Central Office reported that Evans had told them he would not be a candidate for re-election. The Conservative Association subsequently selected Geraint Morgan.

This situation put the National Liberals in a quandary as they had not withdrawn support from Garner Evans. In July 1958 Evans issued a statement to his electors pledging continued support for the Government and urging the Conservatives not to take any “hasty action” which might place his and other National Liberal seats in jeopardy. The same month, a meeting of the National Liberals pledged support for him; however the Conservatives undertook prolonged negotiations.

It was only on the eve of the 1959 General Election that a deal worked out by Conservative Chairman Lt-Col. J. C. Wynne-Edwards was agreed, under which Geraint Morgan agreed to run as a ‘Conservative and National Liberal’ candidate. Morgan spoke to the National Liberals and persuaded them to pledge official support to him. During the election campaign, the Liberal candidate attacked the Conservatives for withdrawing support from Evans.

Geraint Morgan QC, the Conservative candidate, won Denbigh at the 1959 General Election and he remained Denbigh’s MP until the constituency disappeared in 1983. Geraint Morgan has featured on this blog before. He was a barrister who had studied at Aber and at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. Geraint Morgan was a member of Gray’s Inn and practised on the Northern Circuit. Morgan spoke several languages and was fluent in both Welsh and English and a ‘Welsh language champion’.

Morgan did very little in Parliament; he rarely spoke in the House and spent most of his time involved with his legal work. However the patient batterers of Denbigh loved him. He replied to all their letters diligently, in Welsh if required. When the A55 was upgraded, Geraint succeeded in bagging his constituents compensation. Which was more than those victims of a trafficking gang illegally imprisoned ever got. Now what political muscle did Geraint exert at Westminster to get those constituents compensation re the A55???

Geraint had only been the MP for Denbigh for two years when Enoch Powell visited the North Wales Hospital and had that row with the reception committee, which ended with Powell saying ‘I will not allow you to do this to people’ and walking out. They’ll have only shown him the best wards as well. Powell of course didn’t carry out his promise, the matter of the horror story which was Denbigh was quietly dropped very soon after he got back to London. See previous posts.

Ironically Geraint was appalled over the Profumo Affair.

The constituency of Denbigh disappeared in 1983; that decision must have been made a few years previously. Mary Wynch was illegally imprisoned in 1979, the year in which Thatch was elected. Mary began litigation as soon as she got out of Denbigh. I wonder if the disappearance of the constituency might have been related to that?

At the 1983 General Election, Geraint Morgan entered the fray re the selection as Tory candidate for the new seat of Clwyd North West which involved a massive punch-up between a Thatcherite friend of Dafydd’s gang, Beata Brookes and a Tory wet friend of Dafydd’s gang, Sir Anthony Meyer. Conservative Party Central office tried to parachute Beata Brookes in as the candidate. I wonder why? Anthony Meyer successfully sued in law to have the imposition of Brookes as the candidate declared unlawful. A new selection meeting was held, where the choice was between Meyer and Brookes. Geraint Morgan’s application to be included was rejected, despite (according to eyewitnesses) his having considerable support from the floor of the public meeting (open to Conservative Party members, who were not permitted a general vote). See previous posts for further details of the chaos and those involved.

Thatch must have been in a real quandry. Three willing facilitators of a paedophile gang, all wanting to be the Tory candidate for Clwyd North West, but the one that she favoured, Beata Brookes, was universally loathed.

After leaving Parliament, Geraint Morgan continued to practise law as a Crown Court Recorder.

 

Some of those others who had a desire to be the MP for Denbigh who, like everybody else, ignored what was happening to hundreds of people in the North Wales Hospital, as well as the wider trafficking gang and associated criminality, have been regulars on this blog. I have provided extensive details in previous posts, so I’ll just give a quick resume here.

Dafydd himself stood for election as the Plaid candidate, twice. In 1959 Dafydd polled 3077 votes and in 1964 he polled 3444.

In 1966 Sir Alun Talfan Davies, a barrister and judge, stood as the Liberal candidate. He was a member of Gray’s Inn and was retained by the NUM. Davies was a counsel to the Public Inquiry into Aberfan. From 1967 to 1990, Davies was Chairman of the Trustees of the Aberfan Fund, which allocated the money raised by public subscription following the disaster. As well as sitting as a Circuit judge in various courts in Wales, Davies was a member of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, 1976-85 and a member of the Court of Appeal of Jersey and Guernsey.

Sir Alun had been a member of Plaid during the 1930s, but he defected to the Liberals, becoming Chairman of the Liberal Party for Wales. Talfan Davies read law at Aber and at Gonville and Caius, Cambridge. His daughter married the Welsh Rugby International Barry John.

Meredith Edwards was the Plaid candidate in 1966. Edwards was an actor and writer who was born at Rhosllannerchrugog and went to Ruabon Grammar School. He worked with the Welsh National Theatre Company and with the Liverpool Playhouse and also starred on TV and in films. Edwards was a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards.

In 1970, Ann Clwyd, who came from the Denbigh area, stood as the Labour candidate. Ann is a Feminist Socialist.

In Feb 1974, Kremlyn Sherrington was the Labour candidate.

In Oct 1974, Paul Flynn was the Labour candidate. Ieuan Wyn Jones stood as the Plaid candidate. Ieuan came from the Denbigh area, his dad was a Nonconformist Minister there and Ieuan subsequently practised as a solicitor at nearby Ruthin. Ieuan must have been really desperate to represent the patient batterers and people traffickers, because he stood as the Plaid candidate again in 1979…The year of the Mary Wynch Scandal Ieuan…

 

 

So that is a small part of the history of the Slaves, Perfect Slaves. It’s been going on for a very long time. One persistent feature of north Wales has been the presence of a great many orphanages and children’s homes, long before Dafydd and John Allen went into business. The numerous homes, which were run by a variety of charities and religious organisations, were a presence in north Wales by the late 19 century, which seems a bit odd because the region wasn’t heavily populated. Many of the children’s homes even used the same buildings that Dafydd’s gang subsequently purchased and used. I can only assume that there was a demand for children’s homes because so many people in north Wales were so poor that they had trouble affording the upkeep of their own children. Then there were the many families who had lost their fathers in industrial accidents… The average lifespan for some grades of worker in the slate quarries was less than 40 years old.

Slaves, Perfect Slaves.

Anyone up for giving the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board another few million?

 

I haven’t had time to follow the news for the past few days, but I did catch a quick glimpse of an article which stated that the North Wales Hospital has finally been purchased by Denbigh Council. There won’t be an excavations of the site now then in pursuit of bodies. Not with everybody knowing Taid…

Holding The Country To Ransom – Part I

My posts ‘Don’t Mess With Daddy’ and ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’ discussed Dr Hywel Francis, Labour MP for Aberavon, 2001-15 and his toadying to Top Doctors in the context of his past membership of the Communist Party of Great Britain and his pride in his dad Dai Francis’s membership of the CP of GB as well as Dai’s position as General Secretary of the South Wales NUM and the Chairman of the Wales TUC. Dai – and therefore Hywel as well – had the dirt on Dafydd and the paedophiles as well as George Thomas going back to the dawn of time as well as the not-quite-so-noble-as-Nye-Bevan-would-have-us-believe-origins-of-the-NHS. Dai and Hywel wielded a great deal of power as a result of being in possession of this gen.

Yet throughout the 1984-85 Miners’ Strike, as Thatch wrecked south Wales, Hywel was one of the many dogs which did not bark. He knew that Dafydd’s gang was supplying kids to Thatcher’s friend and Minister Sir Peter Morrison as well as to others for sex, but he didn’t so much as whimper quietly. He kept as quiet as the Windbag et al. Could that have been because of the necessity to unite against a small group of young people who had found out some of what was going on in north Wales with regard to Gwynne the lobotomist, Dr D.G.E. Wood and the Windbag’s mate Dr Tony Francis and the role that those Top Docs and their associates were playing in concealing the molesting activities of south Wales Labour’s Mr Big, George Thomas aka Viscount Tonypandy and of course all those Labour Borough Councils in London and elsewhere, who were sending hundreds of kids to children’s homes in north Wales, where there were abused and trafficked into sex work? A lot of people were particularly anxious in 1984 when George Thomas was hospitalised with an STI and got into a panic because he thought that everything was about to be blown, but dear old Leo Abse came to the rescue as usual (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’). It was in 1984 when the threats from the Top Docs really began to rain down upon the heads of Brown and me…

What with the collusion of Plaid and Dr Death’s lot as well, Thatch must have been rolling around laughing. They all wanted to Bring Down The Tories, but the whole lot of them were occupying the same sewer…

I have explained in previous posts that the Top Docs began to view Brown as some sort of armed revolutionary in 1984-85, when he was involved with work investigating the way in which the mass media reported the Miners’ Strike and generally publishing the sort of things that Dr D.G.E. Wood didn’t read in his Daily Mail.

 

Brown and I knew quite a bit about the dirty tricks played in the Miners’ Strike, but it is only recently that I have discovered how many of the key players were also involved in concealing Dafydd’s gang, as well as associated gangs and how important the collusion with that cesspit was with regard to events regarding the Miners’ Strike.

Some months ago I read ‘Digging Deeper’, the 1985 volume about the Miners’ Strike edited by Huw Beynon and it was a real revelation. I supplemented it with other reading, including Ian MacGregor’s account of the strike with a view to blogging quite extensively about the links to Dafydd et al of everyone involved, but sadly I’m not going to have the scope for that. However, I will cover some of the major figures with the strongest links over a series of posts.

In this post I’ll explore some of those involved in the run-up to the Miners’ Strike. The Tories themselves have been quite upfront regarding the Thatcher Gov’ts aim to destroy the NUM as part of the wider offensive against the trade union movement in general and how the fight with the NUM was very carefully planned and co-ordinated years before the strike and involved the police, who were effectively turned into a national paramilitary force for the purpose of doing battle with the NUM.

Although Thatcher did conduct a major offensive against trade unions and a very effective one, it is worth pointing out that Thatch went after a certain sort of union in particular and not necessarily ‘militant’ ones. Thatch went for the jugular with regard to unions representing stereotypical ‘workers’, even if they were relatively highly paid ‘workers’. The most powerful union in the country today and when Thatch did battle with the NUM is and was the BMA. The BMA is a union is spite of all the posing and as Ken Clarke observed, the BMA presents the biggest challenge of any union to Gov’ts of all hues. The BMA wins every time. The RCN also does pretty well for itself. Other public sector unions with a high proportion of NHS workers such as UNISON and UNITE don’t have the muscle of the BMA, but they are still very much with us, unlike the ‘workers’ unions which Thatch destroyed.

The Tories found it very hard to take on NHS ‘professionals’; indeed when COHSE had a scrap with Ken Clarke, he split the union by offering the members of COHSE who were Angels more dosh than the other members of COHSE. Those selfless ever-giving Angels took the bait, trousered the cash and poor old COHSE was finished. Ken had the same problems with COHSE that he had with other unions containing Top Doctors and Angels; not only did they have a squeaky clean image – as opposed to miners who hold the country to ransom – but Fings Break in the NHS if the Top Docs et al get cross and the Top Docs and Angels were crucial to keeping the lid on the Westminster Paedophile Ring. David Williams, the General Secretary of COHSE, trained as an Angel at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. They had every Gov’t by the knackers and Ken Clarke et al knew it. See post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’.

Today the trade union movement mainly represents professional or semi-professional public sector workers. That is not coincidental.

The plans to do battle with the unions began back when Thatcher was elected as Tory leader in Feb 1975. Lord Peter Carrington’s first task under Thatch as the new leader was to produce a detailed report on the lessons from the 1973-74 dispute between the NUM and Heath’s Gov’t which brought the Gov’t down. Carrington had briefly been Secretary of State for Energy in 1974. The document compiled was based on discussions with businessmen and former civil servants.

Carrington’s history in the Tory Party went back to the 1940s. He served as First Lord of the Admiralty under Harold Macmillan and he had the dirt on the Profumo Affair as well as whatever it was that Lord Louis Mountbatten and his mates got up to in that era (see post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’). Carrington knew Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, who’s wife Lady Juliet and son William loyally colluded with Dafydd et al’s wrongdoing for decades when they held leading roles in MIND. William Bingley continued doing all that he could for Dafydd and associated gangs when Bingley became Chief Executive of the Mental Health Act Commission. See previous posts. MIND had been serving the purposes of organised abuse on the part of the Top Docs at least as long ago as the 1960s, when Sir Kenneth Robinson, Health Minister in Harold Wilson’s Gov’t, was involved with the National Association for Mental Health (MIND). See previous posts. The collusion was so absolute that it could be argued that MIND was no more than a front for organised abuse.

I have mentioned in previous posts the Bingleys’ strong links with Malta. Sir Alec was stationed there when he was Commander of the Mediterranean Fleet and Lady Juliet – the social worker daughter of a Bart’s surgeon – involved herself with Good Works in Malta, such as establishing hospital services. Lady Juliet was a personal friend of Dom Mintoff, the PM of Malta and retained close links with Mintoff and Malta after the Bingleys left Malta. Again and again paedophiles from the UK were found to have settled or worked in Malta and some of the recent historical prosecutions of paedophiles, including those linked with the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, have involved people extradited from Malta. I wondered why Malta was such a magnet for abusers but I was told yesterday that Malta is a centre of serious organised crime…

Carrington was a member of Heath’s Gov’t and Defence Secretary, 1970-74. Brian Faulkner, N Ireland’s former PM, stated that it was Carrington who was the origin of the policy of torturing detainees in N Ireland in 1971-72. Not only were Top Doctors linked to Dafydd involved with the detentions/torture, but Carrington will have known about the activities at Kincora Boys’ Home as well as the paedophile child psychiatrist Dr Morris Fraser who was allowed to continue practising as a Top Doctor after he was convicted of assaulting a child. See previous posts for further details about Peter Carrington.

Lord Mountbatten has been repeatedly named as one of those involved with the abuse of boys at Kincora and there are allegations that this was the real reason for his assassination. Mountbatten had a home in Eire, just 12 miles from the N Ireland border.

The 5th Duke of Westminster, Robert Grosvenor, spent most of his life at his family seat in N Ireland. Robert Grosvenor was MP for Fermanagh and Tyrone, 1955-64 and later sat in the Lords. Grosvenor also served in the TA for many years. Recently someone e mailed me suggesting that Sir Peter Morrison had been sexually abused by Robert Grosvenor when Morrison was a child and the e mail contained sufficient information to suggest that this was not simply wild speculation. See previous posts for information about Robert Grosvenor.

Robert Grosvenor’s son, Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, was the 6th Duke of Westminster and a close friend of Carlo. Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor was the President of the City of Chester Conservative Association when Peter Morrison was the constituency MP and while Morrison’s child molesting was the subject of open gossip among the constituency party and the constituents. Peter’s sister, Dame Mary Morrison, was HM the Queen Lilibet’s Woman-of-the-Bedchamber for decades from 1960. Throughout it all, Carlo was Chancellor of UCNW, where Dr D.G.E. Wood, Dafydd et al were running a branch of the trafficking ring. Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor spent his early childhood on the family estate in N Ireland.

Boys from Bryn Estyn were taken to Grosvenor’s estate in Chester, at that time one of Grosvenor’s main homes, for ‘work experience’ sessions and refused to return but would not explain why. Gerald Grosvenor’s ancestors donated the land upon which the original St George’s Hospital Medical School at Hyde Park Corner was built and after St George’s relocated to its new site in Tooting, in the 1980s the Duke demanded that the old St George’s building should be given to him. It was a prime piece of Knightsbridge real estate and worth a great deal of money. The Duke was the richest man in the UK at the time. The Tories pretended to put up a fight, with Ken Clarke saying that the Hyde Park Corner site should be sold and the dosh reinvested into the NHS, but what with the barrel of crap which was Peter Morrison, not to mention the rest of the Ugandan activities in high and low places over decades facilitated by Top Doctors – including those at St George’s – which everyone was sitting on, the Gov’t rolled over and Grosvenor was allowed to buy the Hyde Park Corner site for £6k. See previous posts. The old St George’s Hospital is now the incredibly posh Lanesborough Hotel.

The Duke had a thing about posh hotels. When in Jan 1987 Dafydd ordered the Angels of Denbigh to drive me to a railway station and put me on a train to London after telling me that if I ever set foot again in north Wales I’d be arrested, the Duke was Director of Claridge’s! Not that Clwyd Health Authority booked me accommodation at Claridge’s, they just paid for the train ticket to London and then forged documentation which stated that I was still in the North Wales Hospital… After I arrived in London I had repeated encounters with sex offenders and other nasties who came after me (see previous posts).

The Duke had many, many public roles at the time that I was put on that train, including: President of the Spastics Society (Scope); President, National Kidney Research Fund; President, RNIB; and President, North East Wales Search and Rescue Team. Dafydd’s gang were involved in all of these organisations and over the following years, the Duke became involved with yet more organisations dominated by Dafydd and his mates. In Jan 1987 the Duke was also Director of the International Students Trust and Pro-Chancellor of Keele University.

The Duke was President of Scope, 1982-2005. David Hanson, the Labour MP for Delyn in north Wales, began working for Scope in 1982. There were allegations that Scope concealed the abused of vulnerable people. David Hanson served as a Councillor on a number of Boroughs in Cheshire during the 1980s, when Dafydd’s gang were busy in north Wales/Cheshire. David is married to Margaret Hanson, who was also a Councillor in Cheshire and a team family and children’s social worker in Cheshire. Margaret is Vice-Chairman of the lethal and troubled Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. David was elected as the Labour MP for Delyn in 1992. In 2001, Miranda appointed David as his PPS (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part II’). Just the man for the job in the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report!

Hanson (left) speaking to Policy Exchange in 2013:

The Duke of Westminster was appointed Life Vice-President of the NSPCC in 1988, a post which he retained until his death. Esther Rantzen was/is a Trustee of the NSPCC. The Esther who’s charidee Childline ignored calls from kids in north Wales who were being abused and who ignored a letter from me – in 1988 – giving her details of the wrongdoing of Dafydd et al. The Esther who didn’t know about Jimmy Savile; Savile visited Bryn Estyn and one boy claimed that Savile watching him sexually assaulted by a group of men.
The Duke of Westminster was President of the Abbeyfield Society, 1989-95. The Abbeyfield Society, which ‘helps’ elderly people, linked up with the Chester branch of Soroptimist International. Lucille Hughes was a leading light in the Soroptimists in north Wales/Chester. See comments following my post ‘Topsy and Tim’.

Like his dad the 5th Duke, Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor was an enthusiastic member of the TA, reaching the rank of Major General. Gerald was just Major when I was illegally imprisoned and transported from the Colonies of north Wales. Considering that Gerald had only managed to get two O levels despite going to Harrow and spent much of his time with a gang of mad old paedophiles, becoming Major General was quite an achievement. See previous posts for further information on Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor.

Gerald will have of course known of Brown’s dad, who was a Colonel in the TA. Brown’s dad, like Brown’s mum, was found suddenly and unexpectedly dead in bed, but it happened to Col Brown when he was quite a bit younger than Brown’s mum. Col Brown was found dead not long before the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

Col Brown was one of you lot you stupid gits! I’m glad that I’m not one of your friends if you kill them as well, I might as well write this blog.

Peter Morrison’s family were all high Tories and known to Lord Carrington. Morrison’s brother, Charles Morrison, was Tory MP for Devizes, 1964-92 and a loyal Heathite; Peter Morrison, Tory MP for Chester, 1974-92, was one of the key figures who persuaded Thatch to stand for the leadership of the Tory Party.

Charles and Peter’s father was John Morrison, Lord Margadale, the Tory MP for Salisbury, 1942-65. Ted Heath lived in Salisbury from Feb 1985 and his ashes are interred at Salisbury Cathedral. Or should that be ‘in turd’ at Salisbury Cathedral? Talking of turds, in July 1974, Robert Grosvenor, the 5th Duke of Westminster and an ardent Europhile, allowed Heath to rent a property in Wilton Street, Belgravia for an annual rent of £1,250 (just under £10,000 at 2014 prices), a tenth of the market value. The house had three storeys and a basement flat for Heath’s housekeeper and Heath continued to use it as his London home until old age prevented him from climbing the stairs.

Thank goodness that Thatch put an end to subsidised council housing, it really was a scam. If you can’t afford it, you can’t have it that’s what I say. Which is why I’m not living in Belgravia.

 

By the time that Thatch was planning her moves re the confrontation with the union movement, Peter Carrington (who had been Chairman of the Conservative Party, 1972-74) was very well-versed re VIP molesters and those who were colluding with Dafydd et al in order to conceal years of scandal.

After Carrington compiled his report on the basis of the events of 1973-74, Thatch ordered Nicholas Ridley to draw up a plan in order to prepare the ground for a battle with the unions. Ridley was the Tory MP for Cirencester and Tewkesbury, 1959-92. The Royal Agricultural College, which was and still is located at Cirencester, served as a sort of finishing school for very, very posh farmers. Farmers who were so posh that they didn’t do much farming themselves, they employed many other people to do the work on the estates that they inherited or would inherit. Captain Mark Phillips, The Princess Snap’s husband, went to Cirencester, as did Charles Morrison and many more mentioned on this blog and their associates. Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor was greatly interested in land management, being the Vice-President of the Country Landowners Association, Vice-President of the Royal Smithfield Club, President, Holstein UK & Ireland (formerly British Holstein Society) and Life Governor of the Royal Agricultural Society of England. Grosvenor will have had links with the Royal Agricultural College. There were always rumours that a great deal of wrongdoing on the part of the students at the Royal Agricultural College was successfully concealed because of their unbeatable connections.

 

Ridley will have known about the molesters of Westminster and he was a member of the Executive Committee of the National Trust, another organisation which did Dafydd’s gang so many favours (see previous posts).

Both Ridley and his wife came from aristocratic families. They had three daughters: social worker Susanna Rickett, designer and writer Jessica Ridley, and historian Jane Ridley, Professor of History at the University of Buckingham, an institution laden with people who concealed the wrongdoing of Dafydd et al as detailed in previous posts.

 

The Ridley Plan was leaked to ‘The Economist’ in 1978. When Thatch finally went to war with the NUM in 1984, it was clear that Thatch’s Gov’t had followed the Ridley Plan virtually to the letter. The Ridley Plan was a general contingency plan for a confrontation with the union movement per se. The Ridley Plan ordered: the rigging of the return on capital figures so that an above-average wage claim could be paid to the ‘vulnerable’ industries; that the eventual battle ground should be chosen by the Tories in a field which they believed that they could win; that every precaution should be taken against a challenge in electricity or gas – the most likely battlefield ‘will be coal’; that the Thatcher Gov’t should build up maximum coal stocks, particularly in the power stations, make contingency plans for the import of coal, encourage the recruitment of non-union lorry drivers by haulage companies to help move coal where necessary and introduce dual coal/oil-firing in all power stations as quickly as possible. The Ridley Plan suggested that the greatest deterrent to any strike would be ‘to cut off the money supply to the strikers and make the union finance them’. It stated that there should be a large, mobile squad of police equipped and prepared to uphold the law against violent picketing and that ‘good non-union drivers’ should be recruited to cross picket lines with police protection.

The Ridley Plan was a political response to what Thatcher’s Tory Party perceived was the potential power of a mass labour movement. The Tories were determined to elicit a confrontation entirely on their terms in order to cripple the potential of a workforce bringing down the Gov’t.

 

In 1981 the Tories actively avoided a confrontation with the NUM because they considered that the ground for the confrontation with the unions was not yet prepared. The NCB (National Coal Board) at that time was Chaired by Derek Ezra and he announced a major pit closure programme. The south Wales miners went on strike, as did miners in parts of Durham. Thatcher was deeply unpopular at the time, the Tory Cabinet retreated and the pit closures programme was withdrawn. Joe Gormley, the President of the NUM, declared victory and ordered a return to work.

In 2002, the BBC revealed that Joe Gormley was an MI5 informer, who supplied the security services with the miners’ plans for industrial action in the early 1970s. Despite receiving warnings from the top of the union, MI5 and the Government failed to head off the 1972 strike. A Special Branch officer claimed that MI5 told the Government that the strike would not happen; the strike did happen and it brought down the Gov’t. Special Branch claimed that Gormley, a right-winger, was increasingly concerned that the far left was gaining control of the union and agreed to talk to Special Branch. So MI5 sprang into action and continued springing to defend against the Red Threat after Thatch ascended the throne and therefore spent their time hassling my friends and I, because concealing a gang of paedophiles who were murdering witnesses was just so important and one couldn’t possibly have the young adult offspring of mostly Tory families – you stupid old gits MI5 – publishing what they had found out.

Joe Gormley too knew something about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the associated rot which was being concealed by the trade union movement.

It was David – now Lord David – Howell, the Secretary of State for Energy, 1979-81, who’s career was considered to have been damaged by the Tories retreating from a war with the NUM in 1981. David Howell was the Tory MP for Guildford, 1966-97. Howell assisted the Top Docs of Guildford along with their research fraud and plagiarism when they needed a hand (see previous posts).

John Biffen admitted on an episode of ‘Weekend World’ in 1981 that taking on the miners would be suicidal for the Gov’t.

By 1981 Mary Wynch was heading for the Courts with her litigation against Dafydd and the gang.

Thatch prepared for the mother of all battles with the NUM over the next three years. One of her first moves after the Gov’t climb down in 1981 was to order the Civil Contingencies Unit, in the strictest secrecy, to set up a committee, MISC 57, Chaired by civil servant Robert Wade-Gery, which also drew on the skills of the Unit’s secretary, Brigadier Tony Budd. The task of the committee was to examine the files on 1973-74 and prevent the vulnerability arising from low coal-stocks.

Sir Robert Wade-Gery was the son of the Oxford Historian Theodore Wade-Gery. Robert Wade-Gery was educated at Winchester College and New College, Oxford. New College was a recruiting ground for the British security services; MI5 recruited Peter Mandelson via a New College academic when Mandy was at St Catherine’s College, Oxford (see post ‘A Study In Tyranny’). Wade-Gery was a Fellow of All Souls and in 1951 he joined the Foreign Service and began a career as a diplomat. Wade-Gery served at Bonn, Tel Aviv and Saigon. He was Minister at Madrid, 1973–77 and at Moscow, 1977–79. Wade-Gery was Deputy Secretary to the Cabinet, 1979–82, under Callaghan and then Thatch and High Commissioner to India, 1982–87. He left the Diplomatic Service and was a Director of Barclay’s  Capital, 1987–99. Wade-Gery was a member and Treasurer (1991–2005) of the International Institute for Strategic Studies and was Chairman of the Governors of SOAS, University of London (1990–99).

The Torygraph’s 2015 obituary of Wade-Gery told us that he was Very Clever. So that’s why he prioritised the jobs and pensions of a gang of paedophiles and their associates over the lives of witnesses to their crimes. The Torygraph also told us that Wade-Gery joined the Central Policy Review Staff set up by PM Edward Heath, in 1970 to ‘ginger up’ Whitehall.

Wade-Gery got on well with Thatch. When he was sent to Dublin to conduct secret negotiations with the Republic , he was given a choice of travelling under his own name and being met by an armed escort, thus signalling his presence to the IRA, or travelling as an anonymous visitor. He chose the latter, but used a passport under an assumed name, a cloak-and-dagger element ‘that delighted him’. I wonder if Wade-Gery acquired his fake ID from Dafydd, Dafydd’s been doing IDs for years now.

During the Falklands conflict Wade-Gery was joint secretary of the War Cabinet. He was at lunch at Chequers on Sunday May 2 1982 when the decision was taken to attack the General Belgrano. Wade-Gery passed the instruction to the Admiralty and minutes later the General Belgrano was sunk. He ‘always believed it was the right decision’. Pity about all the poor sods on board and the lies that were subsequently told in order to pretend that the Belgrano was somewhere where it wasn’t and presenting a threat when it wasn’t.

It’s the Stigma that’s the problem!

 

Wade-Gery, ‘could be grand in both intellect and manner’. While he was ordering the death of numerous people and concealing a sex trafficking gang with a side-line in drugs and child porn. As well as in fake IDs.

The Wade-Gerys entertained vast numbers of British visitors. On one occasion Sir Robert ‘memorably gave lunch to Norman Tebbit and Rajiv Gandhi, their wives and no other guests, knowing that they were probably the only two senior politicians alive who had begun their professional lives as airline pilots’. Tebbs had been the union rep for the airline pilots as well and a very effective one.

In 1984 the BBC filmed a documentary, ‘With Respect, Ambassador’, in which Wade-Gery was photographed taking tea on the lawn of his Residence. The image appeared on the cover of ‘Radio Times’ and the splendour of the scene, complete with silver and turbaned servants, caused fury in London, where the diplomatic service was under attack for living too luxuriously.

Let them eat Largactil!

Wade-Gery’s ‘mastery of facts, power of expression and willingness to engage in new projects were admired, and he established a role for himself as [Barclay’s Capital] roving emissary to Asia and eastern Europe whenever business opportunities arose. Taiwan was an early prospect, and Wade-Gery was indefatigable in pursuit of connections at the highest level…In the early 1990s, Wade-Gery was closely engaged in [Barclay’s Capital’s] international privatisation work, notably in Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia.’

‘Serious organised crime? That’ll do nicely Sir.’

 

Some of the victims of Dafydd’s gang in north Wales were 11 and 12 years old. Some of those who were fitted up by the gang and imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre were fifteen years old. The deaths of the children in care who’s bodies were found hanging in Risley were recorded in the statistics as deaths of ‘male prisoners’. See post ‘Include Me Out’. They were children who had been abducted by a paedophile gang which was afforded complete protection at the highest levels of Gov’t for decades.

‘Paedophile ring in north Wales you say, concealed by Whitehall and Westminster? But I’m a Fellow of All Souls!’

  • Postcards of the Past - Old Postcards of All Souls College ...
 ‘These young people making the allegations are criminals.’ Yes, they’ve been arrested and convicted for ‘staring at a social worker in Safeways’, the social worker concerned being a colleague of the paedophile ring which doesn’t exist.

 

In 1982 Glyn England’s contract as the Chairman of the CEGB was not renewed; Glyn England was ordered to substitute oil for coal in power stations to accumulate coal stocks. Thatch appointed Sir Walter Marshall, the key ideologist of the nuclear power industry, as Glyn England’s replacement. Glyn England was a founder member of the SDP who subsequently remained loyal to the Lib Dems. Glyn was born in the Rhondda. When he was older, he lived near Bristol and was Chair of the Mendip Society. England and his wife both donated their brains to Bristol University’s brain bank when they died. A fellow traveller of Dr Death who was a pal of Bristol University School of Medicine? Surely Glyn England knew Dr D.G.E. Wood… Glyn England didn’t die until 2013 so he hung around a very long time to cause trouble.

Walter – later Lord – Marshall was Chair of the CEGB, 1982-89. Marshall was born in Cardiff, studied at Birmingham University and joined the AERE (Atomic Energy Research Establishment) Harewell in 1954, where he worked with Lord Brian Flowers. Flowers was from Swansea and spent years covering up all the crap at London University (and Manchester University) caused by Dafydd’s associates. See previous posts. Marshall became Director of the AERE in 1968 and Chairman of the UK Atomic Energy Authority in 1981. Marshall was Chairman of the World Association of Nuclear Operators, 1989-93.

Walter Marshall knew what is was at Windscale that Harold Macmillan’s Gov’t concealed which Dafydd also found out about and subsequently blackmailed people in high places over for years (see post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’).

 

For further information behind the scenes with regard to the 1984-85 Miners’ Strike, particularly the role and activities of Civil Service mandarins in the Dept of Energy, see post ‘That’s Entertainment’.

 

Ian MacGregor was appointed as Chair of NCB on 1 Sept 1983 by Nigel Lawson, Secretary of State for Energy. Lawson was the MP for Blaby in Leicestershire and he knew about the Leicestershire Child Abuse Ring which involved the Labour MP Greville Janner, the social worker Frank Beck who was a Liberal Councillor, as well as many others. The Leicestershire gang was linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales/Cheshire.

MacGregor’s brief was to close pits and reduce capacity. MacGregor was an ‘outside appointment’. He had previously been the Chairman of British Steel, where he reduced the number of workers by half. There had been a similar reduction in the number of workers at British Leyland when MacGregor was on the Board. MacGregor had established himself ‘throughout the west’ as a leader with an anti-union reputation when he was in the US.

It was Eric Varley who introduced Ian MacGregor to state owned industry in Britain re British Leyland. Eric Varley was a right wing Labour politician who was a big pal of the odious Labour politician Gerald Kaufman. After Kaufman died it became clear that he and Varley were even bigger friends than everyone thought, because Kaufperson left absolutely everything to Eric Varley in his will, excluding Kaufman’s children. There was a scrap, although Kaufman’s family didn’t have to work too hard because Varley had died some years previously. The will however came as a big surprise to everyone. See previous posts for more info on Varley and Kaufman.

Ian MacGregor himself had a few links to people who provided an umbrella for Dafydd and the Top Docs before MacGregor got anywhere near the NCB. If I have the scope to do so, I will revisit MacGregor’s background in a future post.

 

Walter Marshall and MacGregor were ready to implement the Ridley Plan.

During the miners’strike, MacGregor used Tim Bell and David Hart as PR people. Tommy Thompson of Opinion Research and Communications carried out polls of miners’ and the general public’s opinions which were fed back to MacGregor.

 

Thatch’s confrontation with the NUM finally happened in 1984 and was the result of deliberate engineering by Thatcher’s Gov’t who were by then ready for it. Thatch was still high in public opinion as a result of the Falklands’ victory. The invasion of the Falkland’s had only occurred because of the gross incompetence of the British Gov’t and the action on the ground hadn’t been quite as glorious as the media portrayed, but the media reporting was all very carefully managed. Furthermore, Thatch’s Gov’t had made diplomatic links with Galtieri shortly after Thatch was elected and the British press weren’t interested in Galtieri torturing and killing his opponents (who were often trade unionists and socialists) or dropping nuns out of helicopters over the ocean until it was useful PR for the British Gov’t.

Killing your political opponents? The British state would never have sunk so low. Killing the witnesses to a gang of sex traffickers in high places? Ooh, that’s different…

On 1 Oct 1983 the NCB announced its pay offer of 5.2% and gave notice of a rapid scheme of pit closures. Thatch denied that there had been any contact between the Gov’t and Ian MacGregor or anyone at the NCB. The Gov’t had actually been in contact with MacGregor constantly via intermediaries and was throughout the strike. Ian MacGregor also maintained private links with Norman Willis, General Secretary of the TUC, throughout the strike. The NUM announced an overtime ban on 23 Oct 1983.  On 1 March 1984, the NCB announced the imminent closure of Cortonwood Colliery in Yorkshire and this was the detonator for the strike.

A Cabinet sub-committee, MISC 101, was established and embarked on twice-weekly meetings. MISC 101 was Chaired by Thatch and composed of: Leon Brittan (Home Secretary); Nigel Lawson (Chancellor); Peter Walker (Energy); Tebbs (Industry); Tom King (Employment); Nicholas Ridley (Employment); and the Attorney General Sir Michael Havers, with Brigadier Budd and David Goodall of the Civil Contingencies Unit in attendance.

All the members of this sub-committee knew about Dafydd’s gang, the related gangs and the involvement of some Westminster and Whitehall figures in organised abuse. All the sub-committee members concealed it. While he was AG, Michael Havers actively blocked the prosecutions of certain people for child sex offences, including the diplomat Sir Peter Hayman and Cyril Smith. See previous posts.

It has been repeatedly alleged that Leon Brittan was a child abuser himself. I have no evidence that he was, but I do have evidence that under Brittan, the Home Office colluded with much criminality, including that of Dafydd et al in north Wales. The Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens gave Brittan a dossier which listed the names of Westminster figures and others whom Dickens claimed were abusing children. Dickens also maintained that the gangs involved were dealing in drugs and child porn. Who ever could Dickens have been thinking of? Brittan later claimed never to have received Dickens’ dossier; then he remembered that he had received it; then he couldn’t remember what was in it or where he had put it. When Brittan was Home Secretary, dozens of files containing information about and details of allegations of the abuse of children by Westminster figures and others went missing and have never been found. See previous posts.

 

Eric Heffer was Chairman of the Labour Party, Oct 1983-Oct 1984, under the Windbag’s leadership. Fatty Heffer wrote the introduction to Beynon’s edited volume ‘Digging Deeper’. Fatty fumes away about the union movement providing insufficient support for the 1984-85 NUM strike and bangs on about how the state apparatus – the police, the law, the judges, the Civil Service and the media – were all used against ‘the workers’. Which is completely true. But the same state apparatus was also used against the victims of a vicious criminal sex abuse gang and there were a few people in north Wales who would have made credible witnesses to that gang and who would have willingly worked with people on the left to bring Thatcher’s lot down. Fatty Heffer et al were not interested in what was happening to us because Fatty and his wife Doris, a former medical secretary, were part of Dafydd’s Liverpool empire. Fatty and Doris were well in with the Top Doctors. Furthermore Fatty and Doris were on excellent terms with Thatch but that was not reported until after Fatty died (see previous posts). The media did Fatty a few favours there; Fatty in his flat at Dolphin Square, the apartment block to which kids from the Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor were being trafficked (see post ‘Are You Local?’).

 

The NCB Area Director of the South Wales Coalfield, 1973-85, was Philip Weekes, one of the Windbag’s ‘boyhood idols’. Which is a bit weird really, because most boys of the Windbag’s generation idolised Biggles or the like.

Weekes’s obituary tells us that ‘Weekes was the last regional NCB boss to join the NCB’s campaign to try to persuade the miners back to work. It was widely believed at that time that only the threat from on high that Weekes’s plans for further investment in the stricken coalfield might be in jeopardy induced him to bow to the NCB’s high command.’ Whoever believed that must have forgotten that the NUM went on strike because Thatch planned to close the coal industry down, including the south Wales coalfield. Although in the end, the strike ‘represented the wreck of his hopes for mining in South Wales, throughout it he worked behind the scenes with the unions to ensure that basic maintenance work on the pits was carried out’. As the Area Director of the South Wales Coalfield, the Windbag’s hero will have known that the ostentatious maintenance work was a con, because Thatch was going to close those pits down…

Philip Weekes was ‘born on the outskirts of Tredegar, the son of a pharmacist who ran the local Boots. He was educated at Tredegar County School from where he went to University College, Cardiff’. So Weekes came from Nye Bevan territory and will have known the Great Man from Tredegar who buggered off to live in the poshest part of south west London when he was able to, because they don’t have a Fortnum and Mason in Tredegar.

‘After graduating in mining engineering, Weekes joined Tredegar Iron and Coal in 1939. In 1942 he joined the RAF with the idea of training as a pilot. Owing to a sight defect this was not to be and by 1944 Weekes was back in the coal industry. By 1946, Weekes was manager of the Wyllie Colliery, near Caerphilly and took it through nationalisation the following year. In 1948 he became manager of Oakdale Colliery, one of the South Wales coalfield’s biggest pits. In 1950 Weekes was seconded to the Colonial Office and sent to Nigeria to assess the situation at the Enugu mines, where miners had been rioting’.

‘Returning to Wales in 1951, Weekes held a number of posts on the ground followed by a spell as Director of Studies at the NCB Staff College in 1964, a period as Deputy Director (mining) in the South Midlands area in 1967. Thereafter he was Chief Mining Engineer and then Director General of Mining at the national HQ in London.’

In 1973 Weekes was made South Wales Area Director. ‘On the horizon, pit closures loomed on a massive scale, with thousands likely to be thrown out of work. The miners’ strike over pay that brought down the Government of Heath in February 1974 was a filip to miners’ morale’, although ‘the tide of closures was irresistible. Wyllie…had already closed in 1968. By the early 1980s, among seven pits on yet another “in jeopardy” list was Oakdale…already by then down to 900 men employed from its peak of more than 2,000. Though he frequently had to steel himself to make blunt pronouncements, Weekes strove where he could to compensate for the closure of uneconomic pits by investing in and developing new projects’.

Weekes knew that the ‘new projects’ in which the Gov’t invested were laughable. Thousands and thousands of people were put out of work and small corners of the coalfield were converted into tourist attractions which employed a dozen or so people on the lowest wages. The tourist attractions are nice to visit but they didn’t replace British industry. I saw a Mr Angry in the audience on a Vincent Kane TV programme say this once and Kane shut him up. Kane was talking to a Gov’t PR vehicle who was boasting about the new investment and all the accompanying Regeneration Of South Wales and Mr Angry stood up and yelled out ‘this is complete crap’ and began reeling off some very embarrassing facts and figures. Vincent Kane told Mr Angry that there was no point in him shouting because he didn’t have a microphone, so no-one would have heard him. Well I did and I wasn’t even in the studio, I was at home watching the tele. Who was given the microphone on so many of Vincent Kane’s shows? Dafydd. See previous posts.

During the 1984-85 strike, Weekes helped to ensure that in South Wales, the strike was policed by ‘local officers’ and not by those brought in from metropolitan areas. It was suggested by Weekes’s fan club that it was because of this that the violent clashes between pickets and police seen in other areas were almost entirely absent from the South Wales area.

Would someone like to explain how the Area Director for the NCB in South Wales managed to wield that sort of influence over policing? It is known that the policing of the 1984-85 strike was being ordered at Gov’t level; Thatch and the Cabinet had that ridiculous Cobra room constructed, which was equipped with hotlines to Chief Constables. Microphones descended from the ceiling to enable Thatch and the Cabinet to direct the troops.

‘Emergency, emergency, students from Bangor with parents who are Tories have tripped over the Westminster Paedophile Ring – get us Dafydd NOW!’

In the summer of 1984, Brown and I attended a public meeting in Bangor which had been called by Cledan Mears, the Bishop of Bangor, 1982-92, to discuss the heroin problem which had hit Bangor and Anglesey. There were teachers in the audience who ALL complained about the removal of local police officers from north Wales to man the picket lines in other parts of the UK. The guest of honour at this meeting who had been invited to address the audience, being an Expert On Drugs, was one Dafydd. It was farcical. See post ‘Amber Rudd, The Miners’ Strike And A Memory Jogged’.

The previous Bishop of Bangor, Gwilym Williams, who also served as Archbishop of Wales, had been fully on board with Dafydd’s gang (see previous posts). As were huge swathes of the North Wales Police, even if they had been redeployed to beat up the pickets at Orgreave. It would have been very difficult for Cledan Mears not to have known what Dafydd et al were up to. Mears went to Abersytwyth University, had served as a curate in Mostyn and in a village near Wrexham, before becoming the vicar of Cwm near Ebbw Vale. From 1959 to 1973, Mears was a lecturer at what is now Cardiff University, after which he became the vicar of St Mark’s Gabalfa, his last position before his ordination to the episcopate.

Weekes’s ‘manifest distaste for the tactics of the NCB under Ian MacGregor inevitably communicated itself to headquarters in London. The last straw was his being summoned to HQ and told by the NCB Chairman to offer redundancy to every miner in the South Wales coalfield. He refused. He retired a few months later.’

Weekes knew what Thatcher’s plan was, he knew why MacGregor had been put in post and Weekes scarpered with his pension intact as Thatch proceeded to destroy south Wales…

Weekes’s had a great time in retirement, as good as any Top Doctor. He gained a private pilot’s licence – even though there had been that problem with his eyesight when he was young – and ‘devoted himself to regeneration projects in South Wales’. He was Chairman of Garden Festival Wales, ‘a project to transform industrial wastelands in Ebbw Vale into gardens, housing, leisure parks and sites for the new industries.’

Can someone let me know where the new industries are? If they’ve replaced the south Wales coalfield, I’ve somehow missed them, as has the Welsh economy.

‘Weekes acted as Consultant when more than 200 men of the Tower Colliery, Hirwaun, closed in 1994, returned the following year to reopen it, and was, from 1994 to 1999, Chairman (unpaid) of the workforce buyout company, Goitre Tower Anthracite, through ‘which the men operate it as a co-operative to this day’.

Tower Colliery was in Ann Clwyd’s constituency and in 1994 Clwyd staged a sit-in to protest against its closure. The world was treated to photos of Battling Ann wearing a hard hat and with black coal dust smudged on her face. Ann is one of many who knew about Dafydd’s gang – Ann grew up near Denbigh and she and her husband were journos – but remained silent until the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal could be concealed no longer in the 1990s. Ann did speak out then, rather more than most other politicians, but she had kept quiet for many decades. See previous posts.

John Redwood was the Secretary of State for Wales who, in 1995, helped the miners buy out Tower Colliery. While he was doing that, Redwood was colluding with the serious criminality of Dafydd and the gang. As Director of Thatch’s Number 10 Policy Unit, 1983-85, Redwood really has to take some responsibility for the carnage in the south Wales coalfield himself.

The much-publicised enterprise at Tower Colliery with which Weekes et al assisted ceased operation in 2008. There are now discussions as to whether the site can be turned into a museum or a tourist attraction. Well they’ll be able to get a grant from the Welsh Gov’t and it’ll provide six jobs through the summer months when a few people on minimum wages are needed to serve the coffees and bara brith to the visitors.

Vincent Kane is dead and this is a blog not a TV programme, so Kane can’t shut me up…

 

From 1992 until recently, Philip Weekes was also Chairman of Silent Valley Waste Disposal. Er, yes, a most appropriate summary for Thatcher’s policy re the Valleys with which Weekes so ably assisted.

In addition Weekes ‘had been for 15 years a governor of the United World College of the Atlantic, was a member of the Prince of Wales’s committee, 1978-89 and a member of the Independent Broadcasting Authority Wales Advisory Committee, 1983-90.’

Well-in with the paedophiles’ friends then.

The Windbag’s friend the Baroness of Ely, who’s dad the Rev Bob was the Labour Leader of South Glamorgan County Council, went to Atlantic College and as an adult the Baroness sat on the governing body, just like Philip Weekes! See previous posts.

Weekes was given an OBE in 1977 and was advanced to CBE in 1993. He’d made someone happy then.

Philip Weekes was survived by his wife Branwen and by a son and two daughters. His younger son was Huw Weekes, an HTV journalist and broadcaster with HTV. Huw was found dead at the age of 43, on a beach near Llantwit Major in Jan 2001. A verdict of misadventure was returned. Huw was said to have drowned and taken an overdose, although it was said that he did not leave a suicide note so no-one could be certain that he had planned to kill himself. HTV newsreader Tara Eugene told Huw’s inquest in Cardiff that she had received a telephone call from Huw hours before he was found dead. She had raised the alarm after Huw had threatened to kill himself. The inquest heard that Huw had been suffering from severe depression for three months. His brother Gareth said after the hearing: “His family and friends were desperately worried and we did our best to help him through, but none of us was aware of how ill he really was. The family always believed that Huw’s death was most probably an accident which occurred when he was in a confused state of mind.” A police officer told the inquest that Huw been found in hiking gear and with an ordnance survey map of the area in his rucksack. The cause of death was given as drowning due to a high level of the tranquilizer Temazepam in his bloodstream. The coroner stated that Huw’s ‘reactions had been altered by the drug in his system and he became immersed in sea water’. Temazepam is addictive but it is mild. One doesn’t lose one’s senses when immersed in sea water, even if one takes a lot of Temazepam. The coroner at Huw’s inquest was Dr Lawrence Addicott, the coroner for Cardiff and Vale, who has a track record of drawing some odd conclusions when faced with the deaths of people whom Top Doctors have neglected.

Huw was born in Newport and began his journalistic career at the age 18 as a reporter on the Weston-super-Mare Mercury. From there he moved onto the Bristol Evening Post before beginning his broadcasting career in 1980 at BBC Radio Newcastle. In 1982 Huw become a presenter at Yorkshire Television and then Tyne Tees Television, before returning to Wales in 1988 to present the HTV news.

So Huw knew a great deal about Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and the associated gangs in Yorkshire and the north east of England. He had also passed through D.G.E. Wood’s family’s manor of Bristol.

Huw died 11 months after the Waterhouse Report was published.

After Huw died, Rhodri The Ale Twat, who was by then FM, expressed his sorrow.

A conference in Huw’s memory was addressed by Jane Hutt, the AM for the Vale of Glamorgan and at that time the Welsh Gov’ts Minister of Health.

The theme of the conference was a very familiar one: the battle to fight the Stigma of depression. Dr Chris Manning, Chairman of the event and of Depression Alliance, ‘the leading UK charity for people suffering from the condition’, explained that: ”Stigma leaves people feeling isolated and unable to talk about their problems. This is why so few people seek medical help until they get too ill. In these cases people will often lose their jobs, and may lose their homes and families as well.’

Chris Manning knew as well as I did that when Huw was found dead, ‘stigma’ was neither here nor there. People in Wales – and in the rest of the UK – were screaming as loudly as they could and there would still be no ‘help’ forthcoming. Huw DID ask for help; that is how he was known to be severely depressed and that is why his colleague Tara ‘raised the alarm’. Presumably no-one bothered to respond. But no-one ever did, I was watching what was happening in the mental health services at the time. Patients were being TOLD to ‘go on and do it then, it’s your responsibility’. If you say that to a suicidal person, many of them will kill themselves.

Whatever a patient’s problem, it was constructed as being their fault, while that smug bitch Jane Hutt sat in the Senedd and bollocked on about Stigma. North West Wales had the second highest suicide rate for women in the whole of England and Wales at the time of Huw’s death and one of the highest rates for men. Was it the Snowdonia climate then Jane? It was often a bit chilly and wet up there and the Stigma probably descended upon the patients along with the mist and the cloud. Then how did I witness one adult man crying and begging for help at the Hergest Unit to no avail, only to be arrested by the police when he became so desperate that he later rang up an Angel and told her that he felt like ‘chopping a gas pipe’? He didn’t even try to do this, he just told an Angel that he felt like it; Tony Francis ordered the Angel to call the police and have the patient arrested. He spent three weeks in Walton Prison, was released to the ‘care’ of Dafydd’s ‘nursing home’ at very great cost to him and his wife and all charges against him were subsequently dropped.

The year after Huw died of Stigma, Alun Davies, the manager of the Hergest Unit, rang the police eight or nine times in one day demanding that I should be arrested, because I had told his secretary, over the phone, that he was a fat idiot. When the police refused to arrest me, Davies phoned them back and said that I’d threatened to kill him. I was arrested. Not immediately, because when Davies made the calls I was sitting in the locked ward of the Hergest Unit, having been sectioned. I was discharged after Davies spent all day ringing the police  and within an hour of arriving home, the police turned up and arrested me for ‘threats to kill’. The case circulated around the courts for nearly two years and the charges were withdrawn on the first day of the trial.

Davies made all of those phone calls from the National Assembly, where he was in a meeting with Jane Hutt and her officials.

All down to Stigma was it Jane?

 
 

 

Kim Howells, an NUM official in Weekes’s era, said: ‘There were many who believed that Phil Weekes, a brilliant mining engineer and communicator, should have been made Chairman of the Coal Board in the early Eighties. If that had come about the story of mining in Britain would be very different.’ It would have also been very different if the whole bloody lot of them had not have been concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring because if someone had piped up about Peter Morrison, Thatcher’s Gov’t would have fallen. As I suspect that Kim Howells knows…

This was the problem Kim:

Thatch appointed Peter Walker as Energy Secretary in June 1983 in preparation to take on the NUM. By June 1983, Brown, me and our friends had been placed under surveillance by the security services and Brown had received his first murder threat.

There was much comment that Walker was an odd choice for Thatch; Walker was a well-known Tory wet who, after the Miners’ Strike, was very critical of Thatch’s economic policies. What Walker did know all about though was George Thomas and Peter Morrison’s molesting, Dafydd’s gang in north Wales as well as a great many other matters.

Walker was the MP for Worcester, 1961-92; there was a paedophile ring in the Hereford/Worcester area, which was publicly admitted in the 1990s by David Tombs, the Director of Herefordshire and Worcestershire Social Services (see previous posts). Tombs maintained that he ‘warned’ people about the Westminster Paedophile Ring but was told by civil servants that he’d never be able to confront it because so many people were involved. However, some months ago I received an e mail which maintained that Tombs was one of the UK Directors of Social Services who had caused major problems by colluding with the gangs and only outed the situation in his own area after many years as investigations and inquiries began across the UK in the 1990s.

Walker was a member of Heath’s Gov’t. In 1970 he was appointed Minister of State for Housing and Local Gov’t; he was Secretary of State for the Environment, 1970-72; Secretary of State for the DTI and President of the Board of Trade, Nov 1972- March 1974. It was Walker holding the latter role during the Miners’ Strike of 1973-74 that people believed was the reason why Thatch appointed him as one of her key people to handle the 1984-85 Miners’ Strike. It is far more likely to have been because Walker knew what was being concealed by all political parties and knew that the Windbag’s mates employed as Top Docs in north Wales were in the thick of it. Mrs Windbag of course came from Holyhead, where her Labour activist parents had kept quiet about Dafydd et al for years. By 1983, the children’s home in Holyhead and Y Gwyngyll, the children’s home in Llanfairpwll on Anglesey, were known to be centres of abuse; events at Y Gwyngyll, the home in Llanfairpwll, really did raise eyebrows and as a result Gwynedd County Council were forced to hold an inquiry in the mid-1980s. The Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council, Ioan Bowen Rees, commissioned his old mates from Dyfed County Council – where Ioan had previously been County Secretary – to investigate and they of course found no serious cause for concern. See previous posts.

 

After Ted Heath’s Gov’t fell, Walker served as Shadow Defence Secretary, Oct 1974-Feb 1975. When Thatch won the General Election in May 1979, Walker was Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. In which capacity he would have dealt with landowners like the Duke of Westminster and Lloyd Tyrell-Kenyon aka Lord Kenyon from north Wales, who’s son Thomas was known to be sexually abusing at least one boy in the care of the social services in north Wales. Among many other things, Lord Kenyon was President of UCNW; Chairman of Clwyd Health Authority; a member of the North Wales Police Authority; a JP; a Director of Lloyds Bank; and the most senior Freemason in north Wales. See previous posts for further details of Lord Kenyon and Thomas’s adventures. Walker would also have known Professor Richard Howarth, the Agricultural Economist from UCNW who by 1982 was dining with Thatcher and somehow became one of her advisers, despite the laughable standards and chaos prevailing in the Agriculture Dept in which he worked (see previous posts). Mary Wynch was working as a secretary in the same Dept when Dafydd had unlawfully arrested and imprisoned her just three years previously. By the time that Howarth was supping with Thatch, Mary was on her way to the Master of the Rolls and people at Gov’t level knew that.

Walker didn’t just have recent dirt on those in High Places, he had dirt going back many, many years. Walker had risen through the Young Conservatives, becoming a branch Chairman at the age of 14 and later National Chairman. He knew Beata Brookes, Tory MEP for north Wales, 1979-89, who was a mate of Dafydd’s and had been a social worker in Denbighshire when she was young. Beata was the daughter of a wealthy farming family in north east Wales, of whom the male members were enthusiastic Freemasons. Like Peter Walker, Beata Brookes was a big wig in the Young Conservatives in the Pre-Cambrian. Walker was one year younger than Brookes.

Here are the two clean-living Young Conservatives:

Rhyl Life: QUIZ ANSWER # 148

 

By the time that north Wales was supplying the Westminster Paedophile Ring in the 1970s, Beata Brookes had as many public roles as Lord Kenyon, but whereas Lord Kenyon’s positions also included senior roles in the world of Museums/Arts, Beata just ensured that she was a leading light in every disability charidee in north Wales, as well as in Clwyd Health Authority and Clwyd Social Services. There was no escaping Beata Brookes if one was ‘in care’ or disabled. Beata’s brother was a leading light in countryside sports/farmers/landowners organisations. For more information about Beata and the story of how she caused a civil war in the Tory Party when she tried to stand for Parliament in 1983, see post ‘The Celtic Iron Lady And Yet More Recent History’. It was Beata’s Parliamentary ambitions which eventually led to Sir Anthony Meyer standing as a ‘stalking horse’ in a leadership challenge to Thatch in 1989 and in my blog post on Brookes, I gave Sir Anthony rather more credit than he deserved; when I wrote it, I presumed that Meyer was so appalled at the trafficking ring being facilitated by Brookes et al that he tried to blow them all out of the water. I found out later that Meyer himself was in it up to his eye-balls, but he just hated Thatch and Brookes and was hoping and expecting Heseltine to stand as the ‘real’ leadership candidate in 1989. See previous posts for the full story of Meyer’s dealings (and Heseltine’s) which were every bit as dirty as Beata’s.

 

Peter Walker was a founder of the Tory Reform Group (TRG). The TRG was formally established in June 1975 from the merger of four like-minded groups: PEST (Pressure for Economic and Social Toryism), two separate London dining clubs – named the Macleod Group and Social Tory Action Group – and a consortium in the North West also known as the McLeod Group led by two Young Conservative activists and parliamentary candidates Steve Perry (PPC Liverpool Edge Hill) and Stuart Lindsay (former PPC Ellesmere Port). Edge Hill and Ellesmere Port were constituencies within Dafydd’s empire. At his home in Westminster, Walker met with the aforementioned Tories and they agreed to come together to form the TRG.

From the start, the TRG was an activist group with membership, as opposed to being a think tank. The TRG hoped to spread its view through publication of pamphlets, discussion with MPs, use of media, and by widening its membership. Weekly lunches were inherited from PEST. London PEST had organized a Tuesday Luncheon Club in local pubs. These lunches provided a programme of speakers as well as opportunities for members to become involved in constituency activities.

In January 1976, TRG released its first publication, entitled ‘Home Run’ by Nicholas Scott MP, the President of TRG, arguing for a nationwide extension of the GLC’s sale of council houses to their tenants. Nick Scott was a well-known drunk who’s alcohol problem eventually became very, very severe. Scott was the Tory MP for Paddington South, 1966-74. The constituency was a wealthy one on the doorstep of St George’s Hospital and was a hub of Top Doctors. The local Labour Party fielded Bertrand Russell’s son Conrad as their candidate against Scott. By the 1970s, Bertrand Russell lived in north Wales and knew all about Dafydd’s gang (see post ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’). Scott also served as the MP for Chelsea, 1974-97.

Everyone involved in the establishment of the TRG had the dirt of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. The President of the Macleod Group was David Knox, the Tory MP for Leek, Staffordshire, 1970-83 and Staffordshire Moorlands, 1983-97. There was a big ring in Staffordshire which eventually revealed itself in the Staffordshire Pin-Down Scandal and the terrible problems in the NHS there; both had been concealed for years. See previous posts.  One Vice-President of the Macleod Group was Robert Carr, the MP for Mitcham, 1950-74 and then Carshalton, 1974-76. There was a trafficking gang in the Mitcham area. Furthermore Carr was a member of Heath’s Gov’t: Secretary of State for Employment, 1970-72; Lord President of the Council, April-Nov 1972; and Home Secretary, 1972-74 and in all of these roles concealed organised abuse. The Lord President of the Council is also the visitor for UCNW. Lynda – now Baroness – Chalker was another Vice-President; Chalker was MP for Wallasey, 1974-92, a constituency within the Liverpool branch of Dafydd’s empire and concealed abuse in her many roles (see previous posts). Vice-President Sir Nigel Fisher was MP for Hitchin, 1950-55 and Surbiton, 1955-83 and from 1951 was PPS to Gwilym Lloyd-George, which placed Fisher at the centre of the action. Nigel Fisher was a big mate of Ian McLeod himself, who was quite mad and at the centre of Harold Macmillan’s Knight of the Long Knives (see previous post), so knowing Ian Mcleod will have been even more exciting than knowing Gwilym Lloyd-George. Fisher’s second wife Patricia was the Ulster Unionist MP for North Down, 1953-55. Patricia’s father Sir Walter D. Smiles had preceded her as the Ulster Unionist MP for North Down. At the time of Sir Walter’s death in 1953, Patricia was living in Cheshire… Patricia’s first husband was the cricketer  Neville Montagu Ford, a descendent of the 4th Lord Lyttelton. Their daughter Sally married Sir Michael Grylls (father of TV pseudo-survivalist Bear). Michael Grylls was one of those involved in the Cash for Questions/Ian Greer lobbying scandal, along with Peter Morrison and Neil Hamilton, as discussed in previous posts. Neville Montagu Ford’s brother Sir Edward was Assistant Private Secretary to King George VI and then to HM the Queen Lilibet. So Patricia and her circle were more people who knew about Ugandan discussions in Royal Places.

 

When Peter Walker was 14 yrs old, he spoke at a Conservative Conference and was invited to meet Leo Amery, who had plotted the overthrow of Lloyd George’s Coalition in 1922. Amery told Walker to become financially independent before entering the Commons, because it would stop him having to be compromised ‘if resignation were necessary’. Obviously an occupational hazard that one must plan for. Walker followed Amery’s advice and went into the insurance business, soon forming a partnership with the future MP for Taunton, the crook Edward du Cann, who not only knew my grandfather (who told me that du Cann was a crook years before du Cann was exposed as, er, a crook and a very big one too), but just before the Waterhouse Inquiry du Cann made a lot of loud noises about ‘having a lot to tell’ and how he ‘was going to tell it’. Du Cann never did reveal all, but he did become very affluent after threatening to tell all, despite being virtually bankrupt at the time when he threatened to land everyone in it. See previous posts.

Tory Party: Do you not think that it would have been a great deal easier to have made friends with Brown and me, rather than pay off all the worthless turds who blackmailed you over us? It would have been much easier, far cheaper and you wouldn’t now have this blog to put up with. We didn’t want money, not being Edward du Cann ourselves; we’d never have voted for you, but we would have been quite happy with appropriate action against Dafydd et al.

 

Peter Walker also invested in property companies and formed a City partnership with Jim Slater, Slater Walker Securities, a scam of an asset stripping vehicle which collapsed in scandal in the early 1970s. Walker worked on JFK’s Primary election campaign team and was PPS to Selwyn Lloyd – who was Chancellor of the Exchequer under Macmillan and a few other things as well – when Lloyd was Lord Privy Seal, 1963-64. Walker and Lloyd remained close friends – Lloyd was godfather to one of Walker’s sons.

In 1965 Walker organised Heath’s leadership campaign.

After retirement from politics, Walker became Chairman of Kleinwort Benson and Thornton and Co. Other business positions Walker held included: Chairman of Allianz Insurance plc; Vice Chairman of Dresdner Kleinwort; non-executive Director of ITM Power plc; Director of Rothschilds; Tate and Lyle; Dalgety and British Gas.

Walker was Chair of the Carlton Club.

Walker was a ‘determined supporter’ of the hospice movement, becoming a Patron of St Richard’s Hospice in Worcester when it was founded in 1984. He campaigned determinedly for greater NHS support for St Richard’s and the wider hospice movement. During a House of Lords debate in 2000, Lord Walker stated: “Anyone who visits hospices and meets the volunteers – the people running them and guiding them – will recognise their unique spiritual and compassionate contribution to the health service.” For some reason the hospice movement is dominated by the paedophiles’ friends, in north Wales and elsewhere as well. The contributions to the Lord debate in 2000 illustrated this. See post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.

 

So what job did Peter Walker bag once he had co-ordinated the defeat of the NUM using his knowledge of Dafydd and Wrongdoing in High Places? He was appointed Secretary of State for Wales of course, where he remained overseeing the charnel house until May 1990 (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’). In 1992, just after the five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal died in the Brighton firebomb (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’), Walker picked up his peerage.

 

So that covers a few of the events and people involved during the time when Thatcher inflicted the most dreadful suffering, particularly on south Wales, yet neither Hywel Francis nor the Windbag barked. Hywel’s reward came in 2001 when he became the Labour MP for Aberavon. The long-term deal was completed in 2015 when the Windbag’s son, the husband of the PM of Denmark, returned from his decades of living abroad and succeeded Hywel in his safe Labour seat, Windbag junior being Committed To The People Of Aberavon. The idea was for Windbag junior to be in place in time to sit in the Cabinet which Ed Miliband was going to form when Ed became PM in May 2015. There was just one problem.

Poor Ed, he was from an impeccable pedigree himself, what with Uncle Harry being a Top Doctor, a paid up member of the Socialist Health Association and working with folk at Guy’s and Tommy’s who had concealed Dafydd’s wrongdoing and dad Ralph being a Marxist academic who also had all the shit on Dafydd and the gang (see previous posts)…

 

I have discussed in previous posts how many of the kids forced into sex work by Dafydd’s gang were the young men who died of HIV/AIDS in the late 1980s/90s. It was known that the kids were being infected with STIs by their abusers, even when they were ‘in care’; Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon died of an AIDS related condition in the early 1990s, by which time he had infected other people. Matt Arnold, the Headmaster of Bryn Estyn died in 1994 from an ‘unspecified blood disease’. My post ‘Include Me Out’ describes how basic medical care and humanity was unavailable to the prisoners in the medical wing of Risley Remand Centre – most of whom were Dafydd’s patients or kids in care – yet one thing that was prioritised was a visiting pox doctor. That will not have been out of any concern for the inmates; it was because the gang didn’t want to get infected themselves…

By the late 1980s, there were so many rent boys in London dying of AIDS – many of whom had been trafficked there by Dafydd’s gang – that in order to ensure that the stories of those dying young men never reached the ears of the wrong people, associates of Dafydd’s gang in London set up a hospice for terminally ill AIDS patients. The Labour MP Peter Shore and the Tory Ken Clarke, then in the DoH, worked together to make funding available (see posts ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’). The young men died in the care of people who knew exactly how they had ended up working as rent boys by the age of 17 and those people ensured that the scandal was kept under wraps. Of course, the Top Doctors knew how those boys had become infected and they kept schtum as well.

A recent issue of the ‘London Review Of Books’ discussed the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 1980s. It was remembered that the number of AIDS cases began to have a real impact in 1985 and after that the numbers just went ever upwards. So those boys were infected from the mid-1970s onwards, under Callaghan and then Thatcher’s Gov’ts… The LRB article mentioned a few familiar names in terms of the Top Doctors who were the Experts re HIV/AIDS eg. Michael Adler at the Middlesex Hospital (Gwynne the lobotomist’s alma mater who protected Gwynne until the day that he died) and Tony Pinching at St Mary’s. To whom is Michael Adler married? One Baroness Margaret Jay, Jim Callaghan’s daughter. Callaghan was instrumental in enabling George Thomas’s mate Leo Abse to rewrite legislation relating to children in care which resulted in hundreds of them being sent to children’s homes in north Wales (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’). Margaret Jay married Adler in 1994; Adler had been Chair of the National AIDS Trust when Jay was its Director. When Miranda became PM, he appointed Jay as Health Minister and Minister for Wimmin. I can only wonder if Miranda did that as a two fingers up to any of Dafydd’s victims who dared to still be alive. In 1997, Tony Francis, Dafydd et al were pushing out all the boats in their attempts to have me banged up in a secure hospital on the grounds of my extreme dangerousness.

In 1996, Miranda and Cherie’s friend and colleague, Michael Beloff QC, served as the legal adviser to Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council (as well as of the North Wales Police) and ensured that the Jillings Report regarding the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974, was completely suppressed and pulped. See previous posts eg. ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake’.

If the Baroness and/or Miranda would like to leave a comment on this blog, I’d be delighted to hear from them.

 

Top Doctors and Angels are not the only people who knew what was happening but kept quiet. Some sociologists did as well. One sociologist who definitely knew – who died in 2012 – was Tony Coxon. I met Tony Coxon a few times at conferences and he was very entertaining but he knew about Dafydd and the related gangs.

Tony Coxon became famous for developing the British Household Panel Survey after he was appointed as the first Director of the ESRC Research Centre, now the Institute for Social and Economic Research, at the University of Essex, in 1989.

Tony was born in Sale, Cheshire and educated at the King’s School, Canterbury and Cheadle Hulme school, Stockport. In his teens Tony Coxon decided that he had a vocation to the priesthood. Initially he trained at the College of the Resurrection, Mirfield, West Yorkshire, from where he was supported as an undergraduate at Leeds University studying sociology and philosophy. However he did not return to Mirfield and after graduation at Leeds continued his studies to complete his doctorate.

There have been allegations of abuse at Mirfield and of course the Leeds area per se was Jimmy Savile’s domain. Ed Miliband’s dad Ralph was Prof of Sociology at Leeds University in the 1970s.

Coxon left the church completely for a time, although he did retain a  commitment to Christian socialism which remained with him for the rest of his life. Coxon was a member of the Third Order of Anglican Franciscans. He was a pacifist and a conscientious objector during national service;  a  member of CND, the Committee of 100 and the Independent Labour Party.

Following lectureships at Leeds (1964-69) and Edinburgh (1969-75) universities, Tony Coxon then joined what was University College Cardiff, becoming Professor in 1975. His research interests included religion, occupations, social networks and male sexuality. He was the Principal Investigator of Project SIGMA, a major longitudinal study of gay men and HIV/Aids which informed Gov’t and World Health Organisation policies at the height of the AIDS epidemic. Some of Coxon’s research involved the study of gay men’s diaries.

Tony Coxon knew exactly what was happening; being based in Cardiff he’ll have known about Dafydd et al and he knew that kids in care were being forced into sex work. He could have named many celebs and ‘VIPs’, including politicians, who were abusing kids. But like everyone else, it was a case of I Know Nuzzing…

In retirement, Tony Coxon returned to Cardiff as a visiting and then honorary Professor.

At Leeds, Tony married and subsequently had three children. He later came out as gay in 1978. In 2005, Tony underwent a civil partnership with Philip Hawkins.

Phil Hawkins is also involved in HIV/AIDS work and one look at Phil’s CV leaves one in no doubt that like Tony Coxon, Phil knew what was going on as well:

While Hywel Francis, the Windbag and others were not barking as Thatch took a wrecking ball to Wales, Thatch’s favourite Council leader, Sir Paul Beresford, led the flagship Tory-led Council, Wandsworth, in south London. St George’s Hospital Medical School relocated to Tooting in a number of stages during the latter half of the 1970s. The elitist grandiosities employed at St George’s still hadn’t recovered from the trauma of being uprooted from their natural habitat in Knightsbridge and replanted in Tooting when I began working at St George’s in 1989. In previous posts I explained how the relocation of St George’s was undertaken as part of Harold Wilson’s Gov’ts ‘democratisation’ of medicine and medical education, the idea being to put the grand new hospital and medical school where the common people were ie. Tooting. It was certainly very convenient for the long standing paedophile ring that had operated in Wandsworth and the surrounding area; the Top Docs of St George’s with their Royal and celeb connections joined in the fun (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’). No-one could touch them, what with them being mates with Top Doctors To The Royals and the Duke of Westminster’s family having an historical link with St George’s…

My documents show that Lucille, Dafydd and Tony Francis had a direct line to St George’s/Springfield Hospitals and to Wandsworth Social Services. Top Docs at St George’s and Springfield admitted in writing that they knew that Dafydd – and they suspected Tony Francis as well – was sexually involved with patients; yet they were nonetheless happy to co-operate with the gang in north Wales. Messages were sent back and forth with phone numbers and bleeps which people very helpfully gave each other to discuss the danger that was me…

Donald Naismith, the Director of Education for Wandsworth, was known to be an active paedophile. See previous posts. Children targeted by the south London ring disappeared and were found dead.

This was Thatch’s exemplar of a Council. Paul Beresford became a Wandsworth Councillor in 1978 and was Council Leader, 1983-92. Bereford was a dentist, but a very posh one; he had a Park Lane practice. I read the other day that most of Thatcher’s Cabinet were patients of Beresford’s.

Beresford was knighted in the 1990 New Year Honours ‘for political and public service’. In 1986, while Beresford led Wandsworth, Oliver Brooke, the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s, was imprisoned for the possession of child porn (see previous posts eg. ‘Oliver!’). Ollie was a key player in a pan-European paedophile ring with connections to Dafydd et al in north Wales. By the time that Beresford bagged his K, Gwynedd Health Authority and Gwynedd Social Services, with the help of a great many people including Andrew Park, the corrupt Welsh Office lawyer, were busy taking me to the High Court on the basis of the perjury of Dafydd’s gang and were making plans to have me banged up (see posts eg. ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’ and ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’).

In the General Election of 1992, Paul Beresford was elected as the Tory MP for Croydon Central, where he succeeded John Moore, who had been one of the Health Secretaries who concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the linked gangs, including the one at Wandsworth (see previous posts). Croydon had its own horror story in the shape of Warlingham Park Hospital, where patients were battered and raped by the staff and found dead in suspicious circumstances, including a family of patients who ended up being sent to live in Bethesda by a group of crooked Top Doctors and lawyers who swindled them out of their inheritance (see post ‘A Trade In People – Between London and North Wales’).

Beresford was elected as the Tory MP for Mole Valley in 1997, succeeding Kenneth Baker. Mole Valley is a Surrey constituency. Patient F from Bethesda, who was framed, imprisoned and fleeced of his property and money, then denied access to his child, by Dafydd’s gang after F found out that boys in the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor were being mistreated by their social workers and challenged the social workers and told other people what was going on, came from Surrey. The father of F’s ex-wife particularly hated F and I have been told was involved with the wrecking of F’s life by Dafydd et al. F’s ex father-in-law was a dentist. A very wealthy Tory supporting dentist. From Surrey. From 1996 onward, Tony Francis et al were making strenuous efforts to have F imprisoned again, once more on the basis of perjury with a bit of help from corrupt police officers. See previous posts.

The London Boroughs of Merton and Mitcham are also served by St George’s Hospital Medical School. The MP for Mitcham and Morden, 1982-97, was another ally of Thatch, Angela Rumbold.

Rumbold was was a graduate of King’s College, London. She qualified as a barrister but never practised. Rumbold’s father was the physicist Prof Harry Jones, who was Pro-Rector of Imperial College until his death. Harry was one of those old fossils at Imperial who will have known the other old fossils Lord Brian Flowers and Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies (see previous posts), who came from Wales and used their academic and political muscle to conceal the crimes of Dafydd et al as well as the wrongdoing of the Top Docs in London University. I have not yet researched Harry Jones, so I don’t know what his origins were.

Angela married solicitor John Rumbold. After raising her children Angela worked as the Chief Executive for The National Association for the Welfare of Children in Hospital. Following that post, between 1974 and 1983, Angela Rumbold served as a Councillor in Kingston-upon-Thames and became Deputy Leader of Kingston-upon-Thames Council. While sitting as a Councillor, Angela Chaired the Council of LEAs, 1979-80 and served as a member of the doctors’ and dentists’ pay review body. The late Professor Huw Bentall, a surgeon at Hammersmith Hospital/Royal Postgraduate Medical School, virtually ran Kingston-upon-Thames, as a result of his ownership of Bentall’s, the upmarket department store in the town. Huw Bentall was involved in dishonesty with regard to ‘research’ and the ‘success’ of interventions at Hammersmith (see post ‘Interesting Facts’). Hammersmith became part of Imperial College in the 1990s, Brian Flowers oversaw the merger.

Huw Bentall had links with north Wales which were strengthened in the 1980s when his son Richard Bentall married the daughter of Eifion Jones, the Dean of Science at UCNW, when Richard was doing his PhD in psychology at UCNW. Richard Bentall is a clinical psychologist who knew all about Dafydd and the gang and he subsequently worked as an academic at UCNW (Bangor University). Richard Bentall has become quite famous and has made a name for himself as a ‘radical psychologist’. He has held Chairs at Bangor, Liverpool and Manchester. Richard’s wife – now his ex-wife – did a degree in Plant Biology at UCNW. The Plant Biology Dept at UCNW was full of people who knew about the trafficking ring, because one of the lecturers in that Dept, Chris Wood, was married to Dr D.G.E. Wood, who was facilitating the trafficking ring. Adrian Bell was one of the lecturers who was mates with D.G.E. Wood. Adrian did his first degree at Kingston-upon-Thames Poly…

During the 1990s, St George’s merged with Kingston-upon-Thames University, which surprised me when I remembered how ludicrously snooty the staff at St George’s were; first they relocate to Tooting, then they merge with an ex-poly… The merger happened when the investigations into a possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Chester were underway. Perhaps Richard Bentall or Adrian Bell could tell us how the plebs at Kingston managed to get hitched to the Snobbiest Top Doctors On The Planet.

When Rumbold was a Kingston Councillor, she also worked at the GLC as a researcher and at Conservative Central Office. Both organisations which concealed the organised abuse of vulnerable people, in north Wales and elsewhere.

Rumbold was Chairman of the Teachers’ Negotiating Committee until it was closed down by Act of Parliament.

Angela Rumbold served as: PPS to the Secretary of State for Transport; as Under Secretary at the Dept of the Environment; Minister of State for Education and Minister of State at the Home Office. In 1992 Rumbold became the Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party. The year that the five witnesses to the crime in north Wales were killed by the Brighton firebomb…Rumbold remained Deputy Chairman of the Party until 1995. She was then Vice Chairman of the Tory Party, 1995-97.

Rumbold’s erstwhile junior colleague Robert Key recalled her advice, delivered with “a wicked smile and that dusky chuckle”, that anger and revenge are very important motives in politics. The deaths from the firebomb didn’t do Angela any harm, she became a Dame in 1992. I hope that she enjoyed an extra-long dusky chuckle. Dame Angela probably had a few more dusky chuckles in the following years, because a few people who had managed to survive the firebomb were subsequently found dead. A sense of humour like that is useful if one is a Minister in an endemically corrupt Home Office which is colluding with organised crime.

In 1994, during the “Back to Basics” row, Rumbold had to resign from a job with a lobbying firm amid a row over the firm’s role in helping to win a £1 billion contract for the construction of a Channel Tunnel rail link station. Was that perhaps one of the firms with a terrible safety record which oversaw the deaths of a few construction workers? Angela will have been chuckling duskily again.

After leaving the Commons in 1997, Rumbold duskily chuckled her way back to many of her voluntary activities. She was Chair of the Governers of both Danes Hill School in Oxshott and Surbiton High School in Kingston-upon-Thames as well as Vice-Chair of the Governing Body of Tolworth Girls’ School, a large secondary modern, also in Kingston upon Thames.

Rumbold was Chair of Governors of Wimbledon High School, a school attended by many of the offspring of the Top Docs and other senior staff of St George’s and a Governor of More House Girls’ School in Knightsbridge. She was Chair of the Court of Governors of Mill Hill School for nine years and set up its Pre-prep School Grimsdells. Angela also Chaired the Minerva Fund for replacement of bursaries in Girls’ Day School Trust schools after the closure of the Assisted Places Scheme.

Rumbold was co-Chair of the Association of Governing Bodies of Independent Schools and Chair of the Finance and General Purposes Committee of the Independent Schools Council. She was a member of the Trust and Governing Council of the United Church Schools Trust and Chair of the United Learning Trust, an Anglican charidee and the largest sponsor of academies in the country. Angela will have had a good dusky chuckle at the complaints of clergy molesting children.

In 1987 I was friendly with someone who’s mum taught at an independent girls’ school which was attended by Angela Rumbold’s children. My friend’s mum loathed Angela Rumbold for her hypocrisy, because while Rumbold regularly lectured the parents of the nation’s children on the necessity of being involved in their schooling, Rumbold never, ever went to parents’ evenings, let alone school plays etc. It was after Rumbold knew the mum of someone who knew me – and who knew what Dafydd et al had done and continued to do to me – that Rumbold was transferred to a job as a Minister at the Home Office.

John Major appointed Rumbold as a Home Office Minister when he became PM – just as I was being forced out of my job at St George’s, when St George’s were facilitating the trafficking ring in south London which was linked to Dafydd et al in north Wales. At the same time, Tony and Sadie Francis made yet another bid to have me imprisoned, although Hempsons, the MDU solicitors, knew that they did not have the evidence for their allegations against me. Hempsons also knew that I had repeatedly reported the serious abuse of patients in north Wales. I had a long telephone conversation with Ann Ball, the Francis’s solicitor from Hempsons and I discussed the abuse of psych patients in north Wales with Ann Ball in detail. Weeks later Ann tried to have me imprisoned on the instructions of the Drs Francis. Ann sat opposite me in the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand, knowing that I had witnessed the very, very serious abuse of patients and had written to just about every authority that I could. Years later I discovered that Ann had advised the Drs Francis not to proceed with their litigation against me. They ignored her advice and Ann represented them nonetheless.

Ann Ball. Hempsons. The MDU. These people are lawyers.

The icing on the cake? At that time, the North Wales Police were mid-way through their investigation into a possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. They concluded that there was no evidence of any such ring.

Former kids in care and psych patients in north Wales were being found dead constantly.

 

This was the Home Secretary at the time; the man who preceded Sir Paul Beresford as the MP for the constituency which housed so many people known to Patient F’s former father-in-law:

In the aftermath of a dusky chuckle following a bout of anger and revenge:

Angela Rumbold BBC.jpg

 

My friend’s mum who taught Rumbold’s children also taught Jimmy Tarbuck’s daughter; I presume that would have been Lisa Tarbuck. In contrast to the Rumbolds, I was told that Mr and Mrs Tarbuck were quite devoted to their daughter and turned up at every school do concerning or involving her.

Rumbold was elected for Mitcham and Morden in 1982 when the sitting Labour MP, Bruce Douglas-Mann, defected to the SDP. Dr Death knew what was going on at St George’s and in north Wales. The whole Gang Of Four knew about Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’). Douglas-Mann resigned as an MP and sought re-election under the SDP banner. The resulting by-election was held during the Falklands War and Rumbold won.

Bruce Douglas-Mann was MP for Mitcham and Morden, 1970-82. Douglas-Mann was born at Bexhill, Sussex, the son of a solicitor, Leslie John Douglas-Mann. Bruce Douglas-Mann was educated Upper Canada College, Toronto, Canada and following national service in the Royal Navy, read PPE at Jesus College, Oxford, 1948-51. Jesus College, Oxford has strong Welsh links and many paedophiles’ friends in Wales studied there, including the corrupt judge Huw Daniel (see previous posts). Douglas-Mann qualified as a solicitor in 1954 and served as a Councillor on Kensington Borough Council, 1962-65 and on the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea from 1964. As a solicitor Douglas-Mann specialised in trade union law and claims over industrial accidents and injuries. He also worked on obscenity cases and briefed barrister John Mortimer on the film ‘Last Tango in Paris’. Douglas-Mann was Chairman of the Society of Labour Lawyers, 1974- 80, a great many of whom did many kind turns for people involved with organised abuse (see previous posts). 

Douglas-Mann was elected MP for Kensington North in 1970, before being elected for Mitcham and Morden in Feb 1974. Douglas-Mann spoke out on the plight of refugees. In 1971, in the East Bengal (now Bangladesh) refugee crisis, he said it was “the worst tragedy the world had known” and the following year, when Idi Amin ordered the expulsion of Asians from Uganda, Douglas-Mann said that returning them would be “like sending Jews back to Hitler in the 1930s”. Douglas-Mann was involved in housing case work as a solicitor and served as Chairman of the Parliamentary Party’s Housing and Construction group throughout the second Wilson and Callaghan Gov’ts. Douglas-Mann worked strenuously with housing associations and knew inside-out the ‘renting and enforcing hell hole’ of North Kensington. Although he was elected for North Kensington in 1970, he was made Minister of State for Housing only in 1974. Following Norman St John Stevas’s introduction of the Parliamentary Select Committees in 1979, Douglas-Mann served on the PSC concerning the environment, because housing was part of its remit.

A number of politicians and lawyers who facilitated or concealed abuse were involved with housing.

 

One of the Tory Councillors for the London Borough of Merton, a neighbouring Council to Mitcham which was also served by St George’s Hospital while the trafficking ring were busy within, did very well for herself. One Theresa May. Theresa was a Merton Councillor, 1986-94, where she was Chairman of Education (1988–90) and Deputy Group Leader and Housing Spokesman (1992–94).

Do you remember a man called Donald Naismith Theresa?

Best of luck with your Blitz on the UK’s ‘epidemic’ of Mental Health Problems Theresa! Somehow I don’t think that you’re going to have much success on that front…The mental health system is still run by those Top Docs at St George’s/Springfield who colluded with a pan-European trafficking ring. They’re on the Gov’t advisory bodies and every committee that there is. They are the Directors of Services, both in the NHS and in the private sector. They are Professors of Medicine who provide the Expert Opinions and the Independent Reports. They sit on the Boards of the drug companies and they run NICE. They tell you what to do and you cannot stop them can you, because they know what you ignored when you were a Councillor in Merton…

 

Thatch’s stated desire to destroy the union movement but leaving those unions which served the most powerful professions who were abusing their positions untouched was far from the only irony of her regime. Thatch stated in the 1980s that ‘we must get rid of the social worker’. Someone will have explained to her that if she did that the supply of kiddies for the Westminster Paedophile Ring would come to a halt. More importantly, if social workers felt like biting back there could be some very embarrassing leaks. I used to wonder why, during the late 1980s and the 1990s, so many MPs had previously been social workers. I know the answer to that now. MPs in a previous era were aristocrats and gentlemen. Then under Thatch the House filled up with businessmen, often rather spiv-like ones. Under Miranda the place became choc full of ‘radical lawyers’ and social workers…

One of the many paradoxes of Thatcher’s administrations, which had been sold to the public on their ability to apply the principles of a grocer’s shop and housewifely thrift to the national economy, was that far from implementing Tory Cuts, public spending rocketed. The 1980s punch-up over rate capping was bugger all to do with reigning in public spending, it was about aiming fire at the Labour Councils. It was Heseltine, in his role as Thatch’s first Environment Secretary, who targeted spending by Councils. I have recently accessed data detailing the spending of Councils during the early 1980s. So details of the spending of those Councils was available to Thatcher’s Gov’t and to Heseltine. Didn’t Tarzan notice how much money certain Councils were spending sending children in care to children’s homes and residential schools in north Wales? Millions and millions and millions of pounds. Bit odd don’t you think Tarzan? Yet you never said a word about it in public, even during the great Rate Capping Rows. Furthermore, it was the Loony Left Councils whom you hated who were the culprits.

The Tories 1983 manifesto committed to abolish the GLC and the Greater Manchester, Merseyside, West Midlands, Tyne and Wear Councils. On the basis of their ‘profligacy’. Not on the basis that they were all spending a bomb filling the bank accounts of a gang of paedophiles in particular. They certainly were profligate but that profligacy would have ended overnight if the Tories themselves had not been concealing what was happening in north Wales. Two other profligate Councils which the Tories identified in the early 1980s were West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire. Anyone for organised abuse with Thatcher’s mate Jimmy Savile at the centre of it?

 

When young black men rioted in the inner cities in the early 1980s, Thatch made some wonderful comments about their ‘animal spirits’. There were certainly plenty of animals about, but they weren’t rioting in the streets.

As the Mental Health Crisis deepens, Theresa has announced the appointment of a Minister for Suicide Prevention. Someone might as well give Princess Middleton the job. She knows as little about it all as the Gov’t and she’s been to exactly the same Summits and Conferences as the Gov’t Ministers, but at least Princess Middleton can go along and have a cup of char with the Empowered Service Users and it’ll be a nice morning for them; they won’t hate her like they do politicians who have for years systematically ignored their complaints of abuse at the hands of the mental health services. It’s Stigma that is the problem! Particularly with Men Who Bottle It Up And Won’t Share.

There was a suicidal patient at the Hergest Unit – a man – who had begged and begged For Help and for someone to Talk to him about how bad he was feeling. No staff would Talk to him; I watched them actively walk away. After God knows how long of this, he staged a dirty protest in his room. It was grim, he covered himself and the walls with turds. As the staff screamed at him ‘why have you done this?’ he yelled back ‘because none of you will talk to me, so I have done something which will force you to talk to me.’ Tony Francis finally paid him a visit and told the patient that if he ever did that again, the NHS would refuse to treat him. That man has spent the last 15 years repeatedly trying to kill himself. Some five years ago, his lawyer finally extracted his records from the NHS. He showed them to me. Back in the early 1990s, Tony Francis had written the most extraordinary letters about him to other Top Docs – this was before the Dirty Protest – stating that he would never treat this patient, no matter how ill he became and no-one would ever be able to make Francis treat him because Francis was exercising his Clinical Freedom. Furthermore, Francis strongly recommended that no other Top Doc should treat this man. Indeed they didn’t, the patient ended up going abroad for treatment. The man in question was well-known in the climbing fraternity of north Wales and was actually very well-liked. He had been in Gwynedd since 1979. Before that he had worked as a trainee social worker and then as a youth leader in north London. He knew about the abuse of kids and vulnerable people in Islington and Haringey and he knew Little Nell Hodge and the Radical Lawyers. He had made the mistake of telling people in north Wales that he had witnessed the lot.

‘Let’s Share Shall We? You Share First.’

Marjorie

 

A UK network facilitating organised abuse involving every Top Doctors’ body and social services organisation in Great Britain. The Final Solution was to deny whistleblowers all healthcare for all conditions. It happened to me and it happened to the man who witnessed the crimes of Little Nell et al. Everyone knew that it was happening. No-one warned us. We were positively encouraged to Share with Top Doctors who wanted us dead. When we flatly refused to see loonies like Dafydd, Top Docs like Tony Francis were wheeled out and whenever we raised our concerns, we would be reassured by everyone that Tony was just having a bad day, or he was in pain or ill and he didn’t mean to have us arrested/put us in danger at all.

Now just let’s see how Theresa will provide a mental health service with that lot in charge.

 

It was reported yesterday that four Lords who are all former N Ireland Secretaries of State have raised concerns about the ‘waste of money’ that will be happen if historical prosecutions of offenders in N Ireland go ahead. The Concerned Lords are Lords Hain, Reid, Murphy and King.

Lord King has a great many questions to answer, as does Lord Murphy. Lord King, is your Lady wife Jane still making one sausage roll last all evening lest she ends up looking like a Somerset farmer’s wife, as was her fear at the Tory party buffets in Bridgwater in the 1970s? I was only 10 yrs old at the time but even I thought that it was bloody ridiculous. Furthermore, will you tell us the truth about the young Irish students who were jailed in 1988 for not actually doing anything to you at all, but who just happened to be camping across the fields from your palatial residence? Planning to murder you? There was no evidence. The mum of one of those jailed was a psychiatrist, so will have known about the gore, about shoot to kill and probably about Kincora as well. Why have ALL references to the trial and convictions of those young people disappeared from the internet?

Tom King – a mediocrity at Thatch’s side throughout the antics of Dafydd and the Paedophiles…

Lord Murphy is a Bachelor who has not been blessed with children. Lord Murphy was far too busy with matters theological, being a devout Roman Catholic. It was Lord Murphy who took receipt of the Waterhouse Report, in his capacity as Secretary of State for Wales and told the world that he was very glad that the abuse of children in north Wales had now been transparently extensively investigated and that there Has Been No Cover-Up.

I too have reservations about historical prosecutions, but if we’re talking waste of money, I’ll remind Lord Murphy the Bachelor that the Waterhouse Inquiry cost £13 million quid. Then there were the millions which Councils paid to send kids to children’s homes in north Wales and the salaries of all those highly paid professional people who facilitated the trafficking gang in north Wales and elsewhere…the cost of keeping the victims in prisons and in hospitals… Historical prosecutions will be just another drop in the ocean Lord Murphy.

Tell you what King and Murphy, if you’re worried about the dosh – God knows you’ve wasted enough of it screwing everybody over – just agree to one last investment. Excavate the grounds of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, recover the bodies of the victims who are buried out there and date the remains and if possible identify them. Because people were murdered out there as recently as the 1980s. When you’ve done that, no-one will ever be able to do the We Didn’t Know bit. Because you all knew. All of you. We told you what was happening so people then tried to kill us as well.

10,000 documents King and Murphy. I’ve only been blogging on the basis of the Top Docs and lawyers documents so far. I still have all the records compiled by Angels, I have stacks of pharmacy records and there are many, many more names on those records of middle layer people whom  I have not yet had time to research; I will do that though, because by now they will be Top Layer people. There is only one of me doing this, but there are a lot of people reading this blog and they have their own various lines of inquiry and are following up names that I might not have realised the significance of… It’s what I’m putting it all up online for, there is no way that I will be able to extensively research everyone, but in true Group Therapy style, I’m Happy To Share! Particularly because I know how many lives have been ruined by this lot.

 

As far as the animals are concerned, as MP Nigel Evans’s friend said when the excessive behaviour of Nigel and others became public during Nigel’s 2013 trial for serial sexual assaults on young men, it is just Crazy Crazy Westminster. Remind me never to take a job as a Parliamentary researcher, I don’t want to wake up in the middle of the night only to find myself being anally raped by my boss.

Yours Truly, Angry Mob

This is a follow up post to my last post ‘I Predict A Riot’, which I hadn’t planned but I am writing because of the information from readers which has come in since I wrote ‘I Predict A Riot’ and added the comments which followed that post. People are very good, I do receive much information but I only have time to include a small part of it on the blog, although it does all get read, stored and put to use regarding background information, future lines of research etc.

My attention has been drawn to something which I have been aware of for a long while, that I have mentioned before on the blog but not maxed out on. That is, the presence of many Top Docs and legal professionals in middle class Jewish families. I have discussed previously how Brown and I first came across Greville Janner named as an abuser on a fascist website, which was so obviously crazed and irrational and banged on about a global conspiracy of Jewish child abusers that we didn’t believe a word of it. Some years ago I was told that terrible things were happening to women and children in the Orthodox Jewish community at Stamford Hill in London. The person who told me that terrible things were happening in that ‘isolated community’ I know had knowledge of Empowered Service Users being abused and has remained silent for years. I used to live near Stamford Hill and enjoyed taking walks through there. I liked the Stamford Hill community and I have no problem at all with communities who wish to ‘isolate themselves’, because very often they are doing that to protect their community, not because they wish to conceal wrongdoing.

My post ‘Dates For Your Diary’ discussed how Vanessa Felz, who was at the time married to a Top Doctor with a direct link to St George’s Hospital Medical School, found herself rocketed to stardom in the summer of 1994, when Dafydd and the Top Docs sent up a distress flare in the midst of the Jillings Inquiry when the Top Docs were desperately in need of good PR, particularly because the Chamberlain-Pearce Scandal had begun to erupt at St George’s. Vanessa and her husband both grew up in professional Jewish families in London.

I don’t believe for one minute that Jewish people are any more likely to abuse or conceal abuse than any other cultural/religious group. The salient issue is that organised abuse has been successfully concealed by professional groups, especially people in law, medicine and politics – particularly those individuals  at the very top of those professions – and those professions are held in high esteem among aspirational Jewish families. Thus names appearing on this blog have included Sir William Asscher, Professor Stuart Stanton, Greville et famille, Leo and Danny Abse etc.

It took an e mail to me from a reader yesterday for me to wake up and realise the worst. My comments after my post ‘I Predict A Riot’ mentioned that Dr Bob Tresman, a man from the Jewish community in London, used to work at the Hergest Unit during the Paedophile Years and was recommended as a Top Doctor for patients who had witnessed the crimes of Dafydd by members of the paedophile gang when those patients had refused to see Dafydd again. I told Bob Tresman myself what I had witnessed Dafydd doing. I also witnessed patient F (see previous posts eg. ‘Killing Floor – I Know Cos I Was There’ and ‘Tan yn Llyn’) who was framed and imprisoned after challenging Gwynedd social workers regarding the abuse of the boys at the Ty’r Felin children’s home, then set up by some predators and fleeced of his property, money and denied access to his child, providing Bob Tresman with full details of all of these events. F also told Tresman about his time in Risley Remand Centre, a time during which I believe that F witnessed a murder in the ‘hospital wing’.

Tresman knew just how bloody bad it had all been, because, in response to F’s frequent comments that he felt that his ‘life had been blessed’ – F remained a remarkably optimistic man in spite of what he had been through – Tresman observed to me that if he had been F, he would have concluded that he had been cursed. F himself used to tell people that when he was in Risley listening to the screams of other patients in the ‘hospital wing’ as they were beaten by the screws, there was a bloke in the cell next to him who was completely psychotic and repeatedly yelled ‘I’m in heaven, I’m in heaven’, to which F yelled back ‘Christ if this is heaven mate I’d hate to see hell’. F related this anecdote to Bob Tresman.

Bob Tresman knew exactly what had happened and was happening to his patients at the hands of Dafydd and the gang.

As I mentioned in my comments which follow my post ‘I Predict A Riot’, Bob Tresman socialised with the paedophile gang and their friends in the Douglas Arms Hotel in Bethesda and was suspended from his job by Gwynedd Health Authority for some months in 1992 or thereabouts, but I never found out why.

Dr Tresman was treated dreadfully by Dr Tony Francis, Francis made no attempt to disguise the fact that he hated Tresman and Dr Tresman did face some appalling anti-semitism from the charmers at the Hergest Unit.

Dr Tresman decided to leave north Wales and return to London during the Waterhouse Inquiry. Just like that.

Tommycooper.jpg

Tommy Cooper was born in Caerphilly, where a statue of him was unveiled in 2008, by Sir Anthony Hopkins, in his capacity as Patron of The Tommy Cooper Society. Hopkins is a man who provided much needed PR for Wales at a time when Dafydd’s gang were getting desperate. After providing this service, the Welsh-born Sir Anthony, who loves Wales and feels Welsher than the most Welsh person on the planet, even Dafydd Iwan, emigrated to California and took US citizenship. See previous posts.

Hannibal Lecter

‘Well Lucille…Have the lambs stopped screaming?’

Tommy Cooper was one of Britain’s best loved Funnymen who entertained the nation until the very end, famously dying on stage. What received lest publicity was that he was a wife-beating piss artist who had a long running affair with a bit on the side.

 

I didn’t know much about Dr Tresman, except that he had been an embryologist before he did a degree in medicine and I think that when he was an embryologist he worked at UCL. He was listed as a Director of Robert Tresman and Associates, a company providing ‘healthcare services’ for some years after he left north Wales.

So there is a Top Doctor who is part of the professional Jewish community in London who knew exactly what was happening in north Wales throughout the 1990s, who listened first hand to numerous witness accounts and who has said nothing in response to the many investigations and inquiries into organised abuse in north Wales/Cheshire.

The vile Dr Giles Harborne, who spent many happy years working with Dafydd et al at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and more recently served as the ‘Chief Of Staff’ for the mental health services in north Wales, in which capacity he insulted and neglected patients and refused to investigate even the most serious of complaints (see previous posts), also seems to be a member of the Jewish community or have very close links with people who are.

When I was doing my MSc at Royal Postgraduate Medical School/Hammersmith Hospital in 1986-87, one of the other students was a dentist called Rosie Szasz, who was a member of the Jewish community in Ealing. I was quite friendly with Rosie and she knew what had happened to me in north Wales. She was also appalled at the staff misconduct at Hammersmith Hospital (see previous posts) but being a healthcare professional herself, Rosie very obviously was not going to challenge anyone about it. Rosie’s dental practice in central London included many HIV/AIDS patients; she was one of the few dentists at the time who was welcoming HIV/AIDS patients. She will have known that many of them were rent boys who had entered that line of work as kids in care.

 

The reason why I have revisited the matter of high profile members of the Jewish community in the professions concealing abuse is that after a reader read my comments about Bob Tresman, I was sent a link to the wiki entry of the political journo Robert Peston, who is the son of the Labour peer Lord Maurice Peston. Lord Peston spent his career as an economist at Queen Mary College, London and advised Labour Gov’ts between the 1960s and 90s. Lord Peston featured in my post ‘I Told You I Was Trouble’ and is close to all those paedophiles’ friends associated with Queen Mary College, including the Top Doctors, who starred in that post.

Here’s another Queen Mary Glamour Puss who has spent a career conducting toadying interviews with politicians whom he knows have done disgusting things, including concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s branch of it:

When old Hennessey interviewed Dr Death, the nearest he got to ruffling Dr Death’s feathers was to imply that Dr Death must have been heart broken never to have become PM. Dr Death went into Top Doctor mode and told Hennessey to stop that nonsense right now. Hennessey, what you should have said was ‘So Lord Owen, could you explain why when you were William Sargant’s research registrar at Tommy’s you assisted him in those illegal, unethical dangerous experiments which resulted in patient deaths? Furthermore Dr Death, which Top Doctor who was facilitating the paedophile ring in north Wales was it whom you knew personally, Dr D.G.E. Wood or Tony Francis? By the way, Sally Baker has told me to tell you that if she ever encounters you in person, she’ll knee you in the knackers so hard that you won’t be walking for a few hours.’ Before winding up with Hennessey’s obligatory ‘Lord Owen, thank you so much for this fascinating insight into your political career.’

 

Roland Rudd is a man who gets around to all the right places which host all the right people. He went to Millfield School, where he was just slightly older than Duncan Orme. When Orme was at UCNW (Bangor University) with me, Duncan Orme took a sabbatical year as the Students’ Union Welfare Officer, during which time he concealed the wrongdoing of Gwynne the lobotomist, Dr D.G.E. Wood and the rest of the trafficking ring. In return, Duncan Orme’s career in NHS management received a wonderful boost from the very beginning. Duncan eventually became the Financial Director for one of the lethal NHS Trusts in Staffordshire, at the time when the NHS in Staffordshire was colluding with a trafficking ring linked to the one in north Wales and wiping out patients. Duncan has moved to other equally senior NHS posts since then and that stint at the genocidal Trust in Staffordshire recently disappeared from his Linked In profile. See previous posts for the full details of the lies that Duncan told and the harm to students with which he colluded. Furthermore Duncan got a Third and, I am told, failed his accountancy exams. Obviously a career in NHS finance at senior management level was inevitable.

The careers service at UNCW in the mid-1980s was famously crap, it was really, really bad. In the second year, we were all invited to fill in a laughingly Mickey Mouse questionnaire, the answers of which were then fed into a computer programme which spewed out a list of about 15 careers ‘suitable’ for one. It was a real laugh because in the case of the students who knew what they wanted to do, the computer told them what they already knew. My list of 15 consisted of about 10 words saying ‘teacher’ and 5 saying ‘lecturer’. Which was at the time what I wanted to do. I then had a short interview with a rather clueless careers officer who said ‘well I think you’d be suited to teaching or academia and I don’t think that something like the police force would accept you.’ And I thought well I haven’t mentioned going into the police force, why ever would I worry if they accepted me or not? Students who didn’t know what they wanted to do rolled around laughing at the truly bizarre suggestions emanating from the computer eg. ‘quantity surveyor’ for a zoology student who had no interest at all in becoming a quantity surveyor. That was the only careers advice that we received from the careers office.

Then in the third year came the crisis for almost all of us. It was 1984, unemployment was sky high and the jobs in academia that I and so many of the people with whom I was friends had aspired to were obviously not going to be there. Students with other interests were even more worried because there were bugger all jobs in other fields. The only students who weren’t lost and/or in meltdown were those who knew precisely what they wanted to do – eg. one girl knew about a supermarket management training scheme, applied and was accepted – or those who entered school teaching, which was straightforward. But not teaching in north Wales of course, there was much unhappiness and students saying that they were not going to continue to teach after they had qualified…

The distress and anxiety of the students was so acute, that the Plant Biology Dept put on special careers sessions for those of us in their Dept, which were very welcome and very helpful. They helped with CVs, chivvied us along with messages like ‘there are not many jobs, but there are some and someone has to get them’. All other Depts left their students to flail, which was hugely resented. People were writing hundreds of job applications and not even receiving a ‘thank for your application’ in return, it was dire. The careers service at UCNW showed not the slightest concern or interest in the hundreds of students who would be facing unemployment after graduation, at least for some period of time. Neither were there any resources in the careers office. It was the front room of a decaying old house on College Road with a few ancient postgrad prospectuses in there and that was it. The students received no help and no advice.

Except for Duncan Orme, who was given one hell of a helping hand. So who fixed it all up for you then Duncan? Was it D.G.E. Wood, because you certainly did him and the people traffickers a few favours?

It has been suggested to me that the shite careers office in UCNW may not have been an accident. The trafficking ring was causing havoc and a few students like me had stumbled across it. If many more students had been encouraged to remain in north Wales after graduation, they would have done what I did anyway – mixed with local people – and begun to realise that some terrible things were happening. There was a contingent of UNCW students who did stay in north Wales, but they tended to be hippyish students who like the area and were not interested in trying to pursue 1980s style yuppyish careers. Furthermore, they tended to involve themselves with charidees or Radical Causes, all of which were controlled by the paedophile gang. English hippyish people working part-time for Wimmin’s Aid knew exactly how rampant the crime and abuse was, but were never going to say a word because their funding depended upon them keeping quiet and under their Radical Carapace, most of them were rather weak. They just fumed loudly about the Tory Cuts, wet themselves when yet another victim of the gang turned up at their door in desperation and made excuses as to why they couldn’t ‘help’.

 

After rubbing shoulders with the tosser Orme at Millfield, Roland Rudd went to Regent’s Park College, Oxford University, where he was President of the Oxford Union. After graduation, Rudd worked as a policy co-ordinator for Dr Death and the SDP. Rudd was the first SDP President of the Oxford Union.

So Rudd probably knew a biology student who was at UCNW with me, Simon Batty, who was active in the SDP. Batty was very friendly and chatty, but he did live up to his name. He drove a green Reliant Robin and trundled off to national SDP conferences and events in it. Batty became famous after he was beaten up at an NUS conference for being a member of the SDP.

After assisting the Gang Of Four – all of whom were up to their necks in concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’) – Rudd worked as a journo on the ‘Sunday Correspondent’ and the FT, where he palled up with Peston. In 1994, Rudd founded RLM Finsbury, which he sold to WPP plc in 2001, earning an estimated £40 million from doing so. In 2011, RLM Finsbury merged with  Robinson Lerer and Montgomery of New York. Rudd remained as Chairman of the merged firm, which in 2014 was rebranded as Finsbury.

Rudd is Chairman of Business for New Europe and a member of the Centre for European Reform’s Advisory Board. Rudd is now a Labour supporter and is such a big pal of Peter Mandelson that Mandy is godfather to one of Rudd’s children. Mandy spent years concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the barrel of crap in north Wales once he became responsible for trying to make the Windbag electable (see post ‘I Warn You…’). Mandy was a Lambeth Councillor when Lambeth Social Services had a dreadful problem with paedophiles in their children’s homes. The gang in Lambeth was linked to the gang in north Wales and kids in the care of Lambeth were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. Paul Boateng and his wife knew much about the abuse of kids in Lambeth and Janet Boateng was both a social worker and Chair of the Lambeth Social Services Committee when Tyra Henry was murdered in the care of Lambeth (see post ‘A Few More Who Might Be Able To Answer Questions’). Esther Rantzen’s sister was a Lambeth social worker and Rantzen appointed her sister’s manager as Chief Exec of Childline, Valerie, now Baroness Valerie, Howarth. Valerie Howarth subsequently was appointed Chair of CAFCASS (Children and Family Court Advisory Service in 2008. In 2008 CAFCASS across the UK was in meltdown. In 2010, a newly appointed CAFCASS officer in Wrexham who had taken the place of a colleague who had experienced a nervous breakdown told me that no-one could ever perform their job in CAFCASS properly as a result of the organisation being in utter chaos, but Gov’t wouldn’t dare admit it because CAFCASS was responsible for the welfare of children.

 

In 1988 I wrote to Esther Rantzen and told her what was happening in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. I did not receive a reply. People who rang Childline complaining of the abuse of children in north Wales allege that they were ignored as well. Savile was involved with the abuse of kids and psych patients from north Wales.

Roland Rudd campaigned for Mandy in Mandy’s Hartlepool constituency in the General Election of 2001, the General Election which was held the year following the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

Rudd was one of the ‘Four Wise Men’ who, in 2007, advised Miranda on life after leaving office. Was it really Rudd who told Miranda to stick his nose deep into the trough provided by some of the world’s most unpleasant regimes? I had always assumed that just came naturally to Miranda.

Rudd has been linked to Ed Balls, Cleggy and Tessa Jowell. Tessa knew a great deal about colluding with organised abuse, having been the daughter of a Top Doctor and the woman who Chaired the Social Services Committee for Camden Borough Council when abuse of kids and vulnerable people in the care of that Council was rampant. Tessa also worked as a psychiatric social worker at the Maudsley with Dafydd’s mates and did a stint as a children’s social worker with Lambeth Social Services. See posts ‘The London Connection’ and ‘Baroness Tessa Jowell – A Tribute’.

Roland Rudd is a Trustee of the Royal Opera House and for the Speakers In Schools programme. Speakers in Schools was founded by Robert Peston.  Rudd is Trustee of the Garden Bridge Trust, a non-executive Director of the Army Board, a Patron of the NSPCC and a Governor of Wellington College. Dafydd has had links with the Army for many years and even managed to wangle Army pensions for people who had only served in the Army for a short time and had then been dishonourably discharged. Dafydd has claimed for many years to be treating Army veterans for PTSD. This is known in north Wales to be a con, most of Dafydd’s ‘PTSD veterans’ are drug addicts or alkies who have got into trouble with the law and availed themselves of the services of Dafydd to escape a prison sentence or to achieve a shorter one. See post ‘Feet In Chains’. The NSPCC employed people involved with the abuse of children and Sir Anthony Seldon, who was for years the Headmaster of Wellington College, has been party to many a scam of the paedophiles’ friends such as Mindfulness, measuring Gross National Happiness and the University of Buckingham (see post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’).

Roland Rudd is a visiting fellow at Oxford University’s Centre for Corporate Reputation, which is part of the Said Business School, an institution in no position to teach anyone anything about upholding reputations.

Roland’s sister is Amber Rudd, who served as Home Secretary under David Cameron.

My post ‘I Predict A Riot’ discussed a man from a crime family in London who somehow acquired a pensioner’s bungalow near Bethesda in the 1990s, at a time when there was a waiting list a mile long and when Gwynedd County Council claimed to be robustly pursuing a ‘homes for local people only’ policy. Previous posts have detailed the links between Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and gangs in other parts of the UK and the traffic in terms of abusive professionals or vulnerable people between big metropolitan areas in England and north Wales. I presume that the same networks were used for this Londoner to acquire a pensioner’s bungalow near Bethesda. Brown has suggested that the process will also have involved a tame Top Doctor writing medical reports stressing/exaggerating/inventing medical conditions/disabilities experienced by the crook from London. The Daily Mail imagine that this sort of thing is done by virtually everyone who accesses benefits or social housing. It isn’t, although it does go on. The lucky winners, at least in north Wales, were always people who were colluding with Dafydd’s gang in some way. They either had knowledge of wrongdoing on the part of the gang which they were agreeing to keep quiet about, or they were dealing drugs on the part of the gang, or were sex offending associates of the gang etc. People playing it straight very obviously did not enjoy such largesse. People who had dared complain about the gang did not even get the basics to which they were legally entitled; others did eventually but after a very, very long wait.

Brown’s comments reminded me of something that I found out about in 1991. I discovered an older man living in a ‘care home’, ‘Lynnewood’, in Llanfairpwll on Anglesey, who had done really well in terms of disability benefits; he had even fulfilled that nightmare of the tabloids, he had acquired a car which was paid for by the DSS. This man had gained the goodies on the grounds that he had serious, advanced heart disease. He was a heavy smoker and although he lied to the Top Docs telling them that he’d ‘given up’, even the Top Docs of north Wales would have known immediately that this was untrue. Not only did he appear around the locality with a fag in his mouth at all times but his fingers were impressively nicotine stained. After enjoying the goodies for quite some time, he was offered and then underwent heart surgery, of the sort that one is not usually offered if one is a smoker on the grounds that it will be ineffective. This bloke got away with everything, quite transparently.

Then I discovered that his ex-wife had formerly worked as Dafydd’s secretary at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. She had told her husband everything; about the sexual, physical and financial abuse of patients, the illegal detentions, Dafydd’s constant sexual harassment of female staff, the lot. Some years after this couple divorced, his wife died, after moving away from north Wales to a city. She fell from the window of a tower block and it was attributed to ‘suicide’. She had never been clinically depressed. I wondered how the gang were going to contain and silence this bloke, because he would have presented a substantial threat to them. The reason I got to know him was that I was working in Lynnewood, where he had been placed to recover from his surgery.

I had been working there a matter of days when I noticed the usual for ‘care homes’ in north Wales. Neglect and abuse of patients. The ‘matron’ of the ‘care home’, Lynn Jones, was a former GP’s receptionist who had achieved a degree of notoriety when in that job, first as a result of shagging one of the Top Doctors who was married to someone else at the time and then by being sacked from the surgery for stealing from the practice. So what could have been more logical than to install her as a warden in a care home.

The man who had the dirt on Dafydd was the only resident who was not a mental health patient. The others were psych patients from Gwynedd and one was an older woman who was quite vulnerable. Lynn Jones told me that she enjoyed belittling and ‘psychologically torturing’ this patient because Lynn ‘hated her’. The female patient whom Jones hated so much told me that Jones was stealing from her. This patient later told me that she had found goods of hers in Lynn Jones’s bags, but that was after I had left the job. The home was owned by a local businessman who was nicknamed Christmas, as a result of having been born on Christmas Day. I think that his surname might have been Jones. As usual, the ‘care home’ charged a great deal of money for a not very good, cheapskate service. The fees were paid by Gwynedd Social Services.

The home was located in the centre of Llanfairpwll, so there were neighbours. One neighbour was a retired matron who was frank in her opinion that the conditions in Lynnewood were completely unsuitable for patients and that Lynn Jones should not have been near vulnerable people. Another old lady who lived nearby was also very worried about the way that the patients were treated. Both of these neighbours urged the residents of Lynnewood to ‘get out of there as soon as you can’. The mental health patients were in no position to do that, they had been placed there by the mental health services.

My post ‘A Possible Reason For All Those Prescriptions’ provides further details of Lynnewood. I said in that post that the residents of Lynnewood were Hergest patients, but I worked at Lynnewood just before Hergest had been finished, they were, to be precise, patients who had been in the old psychiatric wards in Ysbyty Gwynedd, Seiriol and Dwynwen Wards.

The man who had been married to Dafydd’s secretary wasn’t as fragile as the other patients. He was sharp, he didn’t like Lynn Jones and he became very angry when he found that she was keeping ‘clinical notes’ about the residents. He observed, quite rightly, that she did not have the knowledge, qualifications or right to make such notes. At first I told him that basically Lynn Jones was ridiculous and it didn’t really matter what nonsense she wrote about them all, it was meaningless. Then I became a bit more worried. Lynn Jones began asking me what I thought about this man and the circumstances of his ex-wife’s death, because he ‘was not a very nice man’. The speculation mounted. Did I think that he had driven her to commit suicide? I replied that she died years after they divorced. I was told yes, but he really was such a terrible man that he probably caused it all. I could see what was happening here. The man who had challenged Lynn Jones and her abusive behaviour was being constructed as a monster, who had possibly been involved in his wife’s death. Very Dafydd.

Lynn Jones was so vile that I left the job after only a few weeks. I later bumped into the man who had been married to Dafydd’s secretary in Bangor and he told me that Christmas had sacked Lynn Jones after she stole several hundred quid from him and then closed the home because it wasn’t making enough money. Dafydd’s secretary’s former husband was back living in his own house and the other residents had been moved to other homes.

I wondered at the time if Dafydd was something to do with Lynnewood, it had all the hallmarks of a Dafydd enterprise. Furthermore, Lynn Jones would never have been able to access a supply of patients and neither would Christmas, he had never worked in health and social care before yet alone had any qualifications in the field. There was a Top Doctor somewhere who was tapping into a supply of patients for this ‘care home’. Just before I left Lynnewood, a patient from Rampton arrived…

When I was at Lynnewood, after I exchanged Dafydd-experiences with Dafydd’s former secretary’s ex-husband – Dafydd et al were still having me arrested on a regular basis – he said ‘I’m bloody sick of that man’. I later found out that he had rung Dafydd and said to him, in Welsh, ‘What do you think you’re doing to Sally you bastard bach, leave her alone.’ Two years ago, when I was examining my documents, I found a detailed note from Dafydd, which must have been referring to that call. Dafydd was determined to find out who had made the call and what the person who made it knew about me. A note had been circulated by Dafydd, including to the police and Dafydd had observed that whoever made the call had a ‘local accent, probably Bangor’.

I very much suspect that Lynnewood was linked to Dafydd’s business interests in some way and it is likely that Dafydd realised that I was working there and had exchanged anecdotes with his former secretary’s ex-husband. It could well have been why Lynn Jones was gathering ‘evidence’ regarding that man’s ‘nastiness’ and the way in which he might have been responsible for his ex-wife’s death. No doubt ‘evidence’ was being gathered on me as well. Thank God Lynn Jones continued with her thieving ways, was caught and sacked, thus blowing any chances of her and Dafydd getting together and lying to the police about the two dangerous nutters, who knows even murderers, who had got through the doors of Lynnewood.

Lest readers believe that Lynn’s thieving ways led to a totally happy ending with Lynn Jones removed from the sphere of people whom she could enjoy causing as much distress as possible, I have to disappoint you. Lynn Jones got another job – as the live-in warden of the flats for disabled people owned and managed by the North Wales Housing Association in Llangefni. Where there were numerous complaints about Lynn Jones bullying and abusing tenants. Lynn was not removed.

Blow the whistle on criminal conduct in health and social care? You’ll never work again. Get a job as a receptionist, shag a Top Doctor, get sacked for stealing, get another job, abuse patients, steal hundreds from your employer, get sacked again? You’ll be given a properly paid, full-time job with accommodation, ‘looking after’ vulnerable people. Furthermore, you’ll stay in the post in the face of numerous serious complaints.

I have since been told that the GP on Anglesey was not the only Top Doctor who lived on Anglesey with whom Lynn Jones explored Uganda…

No wonder she was bomb proof.

Lynn Jones was busy trying to construct a witness to Dafydd’s wrongdoing as a possible murderer right in the middle of the North Wales Police investigation into the possibility of a paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire.

 

People who have followed this blog from its beginning will know that the North Wales Housing Association equals Gwynedd Social Services where colluding with crime at the expense of the people to whom it supposed to be providing a service is concerned. See previous posts for details. Readers will also recall that the deal struck between the paedophile gang and a predatory woman to fleece F – Bob Tresman’s patient who witnessed abuse of boys in the care of Gwynedd County Council and was rash enough to challenge the social workers over it as well as tell other people what was going on – and deny him access to his child while that child grew up in the care of a family which included two child abusers, involved the North Wales Housing Association. One of the material rewards for the predators were two North Wales Housing Association new builds in Bethesda, one for the mother of the baby who was hijacked and a house next door for her daughter (see post ‘It’s All About Protecting Children’). That NWHA bit of the scam involved Gwynedd Councillor Dafydd Orwig.

Someone else moved into a North Wales Housing Association new build just months later, down the road from the predators – Olga, another predator who had set up the honey trap to snare F in the first place. I need to mention here that at the time – 1993 – social housing was at a real premium in Gwynedd, there was a very great shortage and families with several children waited a long time for housing. So it was obviously fishy when the predators all received NWHA properties in the village of their choice, in close proximity to teach other, when they had been on the waiting list only a matter of weeks.

Olga really landed on her feet because Olga had previously been such a bad tenant that under normal circumstances she would have had great trouble finding someone else willing to let a property to her. While the dastardly plan was being constructed and implemented, Olga lived in a house in Rachub known as ‘The Bakery’, which she rented from, as might be expected, The Baker. Olga’s house was the house next door to the bakery in Rachub, but the bakery had expanded so greatly that it had relocated to a much bigger premises at the end of the road. There was another bakery in Rachub as well, a much smaller bakery which was located in the village square, near the shops. The bakery owned by Olga’s landlord was a massive bakery when considered in the context of the size of Rachub. It was known as Cae Pobty Groes and employed much of the population of Rachub, especially the young people. Every other person seemed to work in the bakery.

I always wondered how that bakery thrived because most other businesses didn’t. Gwynedd had a terrible economic climate, Bethesda was full of shops available at very low rents, so hopeful people would take them on and try to sell crafts, hippy clothes, etc but would be out of business within months having lost a great deal of money. The only shop that seemed to be doing OK and which was sustainable was Spar in Bethesda. Yet the Rachub bakery was really busy, it worked all night and vans would distribute their produce right across Gwynedd. It has become very obvious to me in the past few years that, in the way that if someone crossed the path of Dafydd’s gang they would be put out of business no matter how sound their business was, the only businesses which thrived in the way that Cae Pobty Groes did was if there was some sort of collusion with the gang.

I was always aware of the tales from certain people who, in the 1970s and 80s, had moved to Gwynedd, often to run a little business and who had very, very bad experiences. You would hear of people who had upped and gone, saying that they had never met such vicious malicious bastards and how could people be so unpleasant. The sadness was that it was nearly always blamed on ‘the Welsh’. It wasn’t ‘the Welsh’, it was that sodding trafficking gang, they made everyone’s lives an absolute misery. People who knew the ropes would never, ever dare take them on, they knew what would be coming their way. It was the unsuspecting who, when met with threats and intimidation, would take the view ‘you are not going to do this to me’ and go into battle. They would find that no-one would back them up, no-one, even those who privately would be very sympathetic. Everyone was simply terrified of the gang.

It’s over Dafydd. You might not have realised it yet deluded old git that you are, but you are finished, as are your henchmen.

 

When Olga lived at ‘The Bakery’, she trashed the house and left it in a very bad way. I didn’t know the baker but I was told that he was not happy. It didn’t matter, no-one pursued Olga to cough up for the damage, she just moved straight into that nice NWHA place in Bethesda, her reward for shafting An Enemy Of The Paedophiles.

Records at Companies House name two of the Directors of Cae Pobty Groes as being Marion Williams and Gwyn Williams, who’s addresses are given as Tan-y-Bwlch Road, Llanllechid, which is the location of that bakery. However, the business is registered at a Manchester address…

Whatever is going on re the bakery, perhaps someone would like to provide full details of Olga’s role in fleecing and framing a victim of the trafficking gang and give the names of everyone else involved.

 

 

Recent posts regarding the cartel of Top Docs right across north Wales who got together and ensured that no woman could access an NHS abortion – even years after abortion was legalised – yet were happy to refer any woman who had money for any reason at all to a private abortion clinic in Chester caused someone who was a victim of the gang in the 1970s/80s to e mail me. She has given me the names of schools on Anglesey which she tells me were locations of activity for the abuse gang and she also maintains that staff at Stanley Hospital at St Asaph were involved with the gang. Liz Stables worked at the Stanley Hospital, the Angel who spent years helping D.G.E. Wood facilitate the part of the gang which operated in the Student Health Centre at UCNW. Eirian Llwyd, the wife of the former Deputy FM for Wales, Ieuan Wyn Jones, also worked as an Angel/midwife at the Stanley Hospital in St Asaph (see post ‘Tan yn Llyn’). My correspondent has asked me if I knew the name of the abortion clinic in Chester which had the arrangement with the trafficking gang because she too found out what was going on but was never able to find out the name of the clinic.

Until earlier today, I was in exactly the same position as my correspondent. I know that women were being offered private abortions on demand by Top Docs in north Wales, including by D.G.E. Wood, if they agreed to hand over the dosh. I know women who didn’t even want abortions who were offered abortions in Chester. But I never ever found out the name of the ‘clinic’. However, this afternoon, I received an e mail telling me that the Grosvenor Nuffield Nursing Home in Chester was licensed to perform abortions from 1981. The Grosvenor Nuffield was the private hospital in Chester – Dafydd held ‘clinics’ there until he was thrown out by the Grosvenor Nuffield in the late 1980s/early 1990s.

Looks like abortions in north Wales were pretty much Dafydd’s domain then.

I have come across another phenomenon: Dafydd and the gang telling third parties that women who had complained about them had had abortions when those women most definitely had not. The gang forged documentation as well, so it is entirely possible that these abortions which never took place are appearing on the records of girls and women whom that lot wished to discredit. I know of one woman who was completely baffled when she was told by some relatives that she had had an abortion when she lived in north Wales. Not only had she never had an abortion or even requested one, but she had a liberal view of abortion herself and had supported friends who had had abortions. She would never have hidden the fact or lied if anyone had ever asked her if she had ever had a pregnancy terminated. At the time she just presumed that this was just one more bit of insanity emanating from some relatives who were nuts at the best of times, but as the enormity of Dafydd’s ring and their crimes became evident in the wake of Waterhouse etc she began wondering exactly what it might all have been about.

Tried and tested mid-20th century smears were routinely applied to Women Who Complained. At the Waterhouse Inquiry, Ronnie Waterhouse implied that Alison Taylor had given birth to a child who had been adopted and had given birth to another baby before she was married. A Doubly Scarlet Woman! Neither allegation was true. One of Alison’s children is indeed adopted – she was adopted by Alison – and Alison had been married for some time before her other child was born. Not that it would have mattered if this had not been the case, but while Alison was giving evidence about the most serious crime, Waterhouse was concerning himself with whether she had been married when her baby was born.

This was in 1997. Miranda was PM. Alison was questioned about these matters in public. Where were the Wimmin in the face of this fuckwittery?

The Welsh Language Board was put on a statutory basis as a consequence of the Welsh Language Act 1993. Previous posts (eg. The Cradle Of Filth’) have discussed how the Tory Gov’t were persuaded to pass a Welsh Language Act which they were lukewarm about at very best by that bestest friend of Dafydd and the paedophiles, Lord Wyn Roberts. The Welsh Language Gov’t Bill which led the to Act was introduced to the Lords in Dec 1992; received it’s second reading in Jan 1993; the Report on the Bill was presented to the Lords in Feb 1993; the third reading of the Bill in the Lords took place in Feb 1993. The second reading of the Bill in the Commons took place on 26 May 1993 and was unopposed. The Report and the third reading of the Bill in the Commons took place on 15 July 1993.

In Dec 1992, F’s baby was born at Ysbyty Gwynedd. Within two weeks F had been ejected from the family home, was made destitute and had been denied all access to his baby. In Feb 1993, Jackie Brandt, the Gwynedd social worker who had previously unlawfully detained me, refused to answer any questions about the matter and had subsequently perjured herself in Court in Chester in an attempt to have me imprisoned (see post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’), told the North Wales Police that I had screamed and yelled at her in Safeways in Bangor, such that she thought that I was going to ‘attack’ her. I was with F at the time and I had not said anything to Brandt at all in Safeways. Although Brandt made allegations about both F and me, it was only me who was subsequently charged with causing Brandt ‘fear and distress’ such that she ‘feared the use of immediate violence’. I was charged in March 1993. I pleaded not guilty and my trial took place in July 1993. Brandt admitted that she had lied and began crying in the witness box. She agreed with my solicitor Alwyn Jones that no, I had not said anything to her in Safeways, she had continued with her shopping and had not asked anyone in the busy store for help. There were no witnesses to my potentially murderous attack on Brandt in Safeways. I was found guilty because I had ‘stared at’ Brandt and I had to cough up £60.

The North Wales Police ended their investigation into a possible paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire in 1992 and stated that they had found no evidence to suggest that such a ring existed.

The people who stuffed F over and Brandt were among the many people who were facilitating the paedophile ring which didn’t exist.

Yma O Hyd!

 

At Bangor University’s Student Health Centre, students who became pregnant were offered abortions on demand at the ‘clinic’ in Chester if they paid up. Duncan Orme’s collegue, Fiona Woolmer the Wimmin’s Officer, produced documentation for students who were using the services of Wood’s abortionist pal in Chester, explaining the routine. Not the medical details obviously, although Fiona did explain that any student having an abortion must NOT travel to and back from the clinic by train, they had to get a friend to give them a lift there and back in a car. Why? Because according to Woolmer, after an abortion, travelling on a train is Dangerous, because women can bleed so heavily that they can die and that in the past, students had ‘had serious problems’ coming home on the train.

Now Fiona Woolmer was stupid but I wasn’t. I could not understand WHY girls were being told not to travel on a train post-termination because it was ‘dangerous’. No it isn’t, if a termination is carried out properly and the woman is looked after, there is no danger on trains or anywhere else.

That is IF the abortion is carried out properly. But those abortions at the ‘clinic’ in Chester were not being carried out properly were they Wood/Stables/Orme/Woolmer? You were sending girls to an abortionist who was demanding money from them because every Top Doctor in north Wales had conspired to unlawfully deny women access to NHS abortions and whoever that abortionist was, whether they were at the Grosvenor Nuffield or elsewhere, was known to be putting their lives as risk. Were there not proper facilities at the Grosvenor Nuffield? Because in 1984 no woman should have had to be warned that she might bleed to death after a termination if she sat on a train. You need to explain exactly why those terminations carried out at this mysterious private clinic in Chester were so dangerous.

1984 in Bangor and Chester. Not 1884. Not 1984 in Catholic South America. 1984 in Bangor and Chester.

What did you think that you were all doing? Abortion in Wales was legal, had been legal since 1967 and you were forcing women into the hands of a butcher who charged them for the pleasure of putting them at risk of dying.

 

Furthermore, there was great pressure on students who became pregnant to have abortions, because UCNW were wholly unsupportive to students who became pregnant and wanted to keep the baby. Such students were completely abandoned. I described in a previous post how a couple who graduated in 1984 (the same year as me) chose to keep their baby and wrote about it afterwards in the student magazine, telling of how they were in complete despair because no-one helped them, although they were delighted when their baby was born. One, or it might have been both, of those students, were English students. Peter Field was one of the lecturers in the School of English. Field is an enthusiastic Catholic and when one of my friends began working in the School of English just a few years ago, she was gobsmacked when Field handed her a roll of anti-abortion stickers and told her that she might like to stick them onto students’ course work before returning it after marking. My friend did not avail herself of that opportunity.

Peter Field knew about the trafficking gang and he knew the reasons why they ruined the life of Dave Nunn, one of the lecturers from the School of English, after Dave Nunn had a breakdown. Dave Nunn subsequently became one of the Disappeared during the run up to the Waterhouse Inquiry. See previous posts. Perhaps Field could shed light on this.

Although it was known that there was no support for students who wanted to keep babies if they became pregnant – indeed according to Fiona Woolmer’s Advice For Wimmin, some Depts were actually ordering students to leave UCNW immediately if they disclosed that they were pregnant – in 1983, one student in the Plant Biology Dept became pregnant and was treated very, very differently. She was treated exactly as everyone else should have been. She attended lectures but would have a kip in the junior common room if she needed; when she was very heavily pregnant, staff would arrange the furniture to ensure that she was comfortable and after she had the baby, Olivia, she took the baby into lectures and breast fed her on demand. Which was quite unusual for 1983 and very much at odds with the attitude shown towards other students.

At the time I thought that this student, Ruth Manion, was being treated more respectfully because she was a mature student – she was in her late 30s/early 40s – who did not allow herself to be kicked around like the younger students. Recently I have remembered a few things about Ruth Manion. She did not get on with a lot of the staff and some of them were downright rude about and to her. There was a bunfight in the zoology practical classes involving Ruth because she took issue with animal work. The demonstrators were ordered to pander to Ruth and pretend that creatures used in classes were not destroyed, although as one PhD student cheerily admitted to me ‘what she doesn’t know is that we chucked them all in the bin as soon as she left the lab.’ I’m not talking fluffy bunny rabbits here – they were cut up and chucked in the bin in the Pharmacology Dept at St George’s Hospital Medical School daily – the creatures in the zoology practicals at Bangor were weird little sea creatures. The Animal Liberation Front were not so concerned with their fate, but Ruth Manion was. There were bunnies and bigger mammals used for research at Bangor at the time, but they were secreted from view in the Animal House and were used for ‘research’ by the biochemists at Bangor who were working in collaboration with the Top Docs at Ysbytyt Gwynedd. There were no complaints at all about that from Ruth Manion or anyone else.

Ruth Manion had ended up as a student in the Dept of Plant Biology after she clashed with the Dept of Agriculture in a very big way in her first year. The Agri Dept was famously dysfunctional, was peopled by absolute bastards and grossly incompetent bastards at that, who conducted vicious personal attacks on students (see post ‘Not Seen Since The 80s – Carwyn’). Mary Wynch had been working as a secretary in the Agri Dept when Dafydd and the gang had her arrested and unlawfully imprisoned. Not one of them supported Mary, even when her case made legal history and she was headline news a few years later. The Agri Dept had its own farm at Aber, which was a standing joke among local farmers in Gwynedd as well as the offspring of the landowners who enrolled for Agri degrees at UCNW, because College Farm went bankrupt. It was bailed out by UCNW, rebranded as University Farm because that sounded grander and also because students could be openly heard mocking ‘College Farm’ while doing imitations of J.B. Owen, the tosser of the Head of the Agri Dept. A few years later, University Farm went bankrupt again. The locals absolutely howled with laughter.

Years later, two farmers in the Ogwen Valley told me that Prof J.B. Owen was the problem and that he was nasty, spiteful, grossly incompetent and furthermore was Of Dafydd’s Gang. J.B. Owen was from a landowning family on Anglesey and his forebears had donated the money which founded the Agri Dept at UCNW. He wasn’t in post when Dafydd arrested Mary; J.B. Owen was Called Home from Aberdeen University (see previous posts) as the distress flare was sent up in the wake of Mary beginning litigation.

While all this was happening, Richard Howarth, the Prof of Agricultural Economics, was appointed as an adviser to Thatcher’s Gov’t. Howarth disappeared without trace in the mid-1990s, as the Waterhouse Inquiry approached. See previous posts.

Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies, the old boy who spent much of his career at Imperial College after graduating from UCNW in the Dark Ages and who came from Liberal Party Royalty (see post ‘I Told You I Was Trouble’), served as Chairman of the Finance Committee at UCNW for 23 years, including throughout the serial bankruptcies of the Agri Dept’s farm, so Wynn must have been one of those who was nodding through the millions to bail out the Agri Dept. UCNW was known to have had very serious financial problems for many, many years. The Treasurer of UCNW for eons until he died a few years ago was Elwyn Jones, a bent solicitor from Bangor. Elwyn Jones was a twat of the highest order, he spent most of his time at Bangor Golf Club with the other paedophiles’ friends while his clients were fitted up by Dafydd’s gang. Elwyn Jones did provide an excellent service to one client though – the woman who fleeced F and hijacked his baby.

Elwyn had been her lawyer for years and knew her family. I saw the letters that Elwyn wrote to F and the fallacious allegations within, as well as the constant demands for money, although Elwyn Jones knew that F had been left destitute. As F sat in Ysbyty Gwynedd penniless – he was admitted to the psych ward by Tony Francis because of the concern that the stress would exacerbate his long-standing illness, or at least that was the cover-story – he received a demand from Elwyn and his client that F should sell the only thing that he still owned, a second hand car that he had purchased at the request of his former partner when she became pregnant. After the car was duly flogged, F heard no more. The demands for money began just after F married again when Elwyn began demanding money from F’s new wife… Elwyn was told to fuck off.

Elwyn Jones was the son of another Bangor solicitor and the former Labour MP for Conwy, another Elwyn Jones, but a Sir Elwyn Jones. Not to be confused with another crooked solicitor of a paedophiles’ friends, the Elwyn Jones of a previous era who became the Attorney General, Lord Elwyn-Jones. See previous posts for info on the two bent Elwyn Jones’s. Elwyn Jones the son of Sir Elwyn, as opposed to Lord Elwyn, shared a practice in Bangor with David Jones, the Freemason and at present the Tory MP for Clwyd West, who when he was young, worked as a solicitor in Ruthin, in the same practice as the loyal paedophiles’ friend Ieuan Wyn Jones. Ruthin is the nearest town to Denbigh. Ieuan Wyn Jones was born in Denbigh and his dad was a Nonconformist Minister in the area. David Jones’s wife is an Angel and both David and the Angel are opposed to abortion! Cameron appointed David Jones Secretary of State for Wales when Cameron was organising the Review and whitewash of the Waterhouse Inquiry by Lady Justice Julia Macur. See post ‘The Right Honourable David Jones MP’ for more info on David Jones and his network of paedophiles’ friends.

 

I now realise that Ruth Manion will have gained knowledge of some sort of wrongdoing at UCNW and because she was a woman to make a fuss – a REAL fuss, not just polite complaints a la the monsters Baker and Brown – when she became pregnant, people were very, very careful how they treated her. By the time that Ruth was pregnant, she was a student in the Plant Biology Dept where D.G.E. Wood’s wife Chris Wood worked as a senior lecturer. Furthermore, one of the Profs in the Dept of Plant Biology was Peter Greig-Smith, who knew the Cambridge botanist Prof Edred Henry Corner, who was Douglas Hurd’s uncle (see post ‘Additional Security Measures’). Hurd was one of those in Thatcher’s Cabinet who was concealing the crime in north Wales. Greig-Smith’s son, another Peter, was a Top Doc in Liverpool, another branch of Dafydd’s Empire Of Crime.

It has been suggested to me that the stick that Ruth Manion was wielding was her knowledge of what was happening to me, but I suspect that she uncovered crap in the Agri Dept before she ever knew me. The Agri Dept had some sort of connection with the 5th Lord Kenyon, Lloyd Tyrell-Kenyon, who for decades was the President of UCNW and whose son Thomas was caught sexually abusing a boy in care in north Wales but who faced no charges. Thomas subsequently made allegations of theft against the boy, who was sent to a detention centre. Thomas died of HIV/AIDS in 1993, just weeks apart from his dad. Lord Kenyon was, among many, many other things: a Director of Lloyds Bank; Chairman of Clwyd Health Authority; a Flintshire County Councillor; a member of the North Wales Police Authority; the most senior Freemason in north Wales… See post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’. Lord Kenyon had ‘interests in agriculture and health’.

No-one was going to tangle with Ruth Manion when she fell out with the Agri Dept. After clashing with J.B Owen, Ruth Manion was rescued by Prof John Harper, the other Prof in the Dept of Plant Biology, who recommended that she change course and join the Plant Biology Dept. John Harper was a plant population biologist. So I was intrigued to find that after the paedophiles’ friend in heavy camouflage, Prof Eric Sunderland, became Principal of UCNW in 1984 when the paedophiles in distress sent up yet more flares, he co-authored with John Harper. See previous posts. Eric Sunderland was a social anthropologist and he and Harper worked really hard to find a way of combining their research interests to produce that paper. These days cross-disciplinary research is encouraged, but even now, social scientists and ecologists have only recently begun working together. Eric and Harper might have been changing the academic landscape, but they only did it once, in that paper and no-one noticed anyway.

I was told by a retired biologist from Bangor a few years ago that John Harper was a fraud and plagiarised nearly all of his work from his PhD students and post docs. So who’s work was ripped off by two paedophiles’ friends in senior positions at UCNW then?

The father of Ruth Manion’s baby was a post-doc in the Dept of Zoology called Daniel. After the baby was born, Daniel landed a really plum job out in I think Egypt, when such jobs were virtually impossible to get. Ruth stayed in north Wales for a while and then left the area.

Ruth’s baby Olivia was born with a displaced hip and was operated on as a newborn. Once again, those Top Docs who treated everyone like turds were very, very nice to Ruth. It won’t have made them competent surgeons, but Ruth won’t have been in any position to assess their clinical skills; the point was that they kept smiles on their faces and civil tongues in their heads in front of Ruth, there was no screaming at her to withdraw her complaints or telling her that they felt like throwing her down the stairs.

This all took place in the University of which Carlo was Chancellor. Young women students sent into the hands of an abortionist who was known to be so dodgy that their lives were at risk.

Where does this leave the wisdom of Laurens van der Post?

 

Although women with money in north Wales were able to access abortion on demand from the dangerous sleazebag in Chester, women without money could not, under any circumstances. If they did request an NHS abortion, as explained in recent posts, they were sent to Denbigh to be ‘assessed’ by Dafydd. After which they would still be refused an abortion, no matter what they agreed to do with him. So where did those babies go? I know that some were forcibly and illegally removed from their mothers and handed over for adoption, but there are huge numbers left unaccounted for.

Westminster Gov’ts knew that this was happening. Abortion and birth statistics have been compiled for years and indeed I have recently found the abortion stats for England and Wales from 1971 onward, in ‘The Guardian’  Political Almanac 1993/4 that I purchased recently when I was rooting around in a second hand bookshop. My, that book brought back memories and there are a few interesting things in there. However, the figures for abortions in England and Wales since 1971 were not broken down, only combined figures were provided. Yet Gov’t data sets will have the broken down figures and it will have been known that there were no NHS abortions being performed in north Wales, throughout the 1970s and the 80s. Ministers in every political party will have known it and certainly all politicians with any responsibilities for Wales or the NHS will have known. It will have been why the famously anti-abortion Ann Widdecombe, who knew bugger all about north Wales and cared even less, targeted Anglesey as a suitable seat when she was seeking nomination as a Tory Parliamentary candidate (see post ‘Doris Karloff – Honest About Her Expenses But Not Much Else’). All the County Councillors across north Wales will have known it as well, including this superannuated Blair’s babe who was elected for Conwy in May 1997, as the Waterhouse Inquiry insulted the victims of Dafydd’s gang:

MP Betty Williams tells her life story - Daily Post

 

Not only is Betty a former Gwynedd County Councillor and the former Mayor of Arfon, but she was born in the St David’s Laundry in Bangor (see post ‘The BMA And It’s Ethics’). Betty are you sure that your mum was the person whom you thought that she was, what with all that abducting of babies in the St David’s Laundry? Betty trained with the best paedophiles’ friends at the Normal College, Bangor. Betty subsequently worked in a community centre and for Christian Aid. Betty refused to respond to constituents who told her that they had been abused by the mental health services in north Wales.

The Brothers Grimm knew about the ‘no abortions unless you had over the filthy lucre to the filthy man in Chester’ policy:

Top Doctors in other parts of the UK will have been fully aware of what their colleagues in north Wales were up to, particularly Top Doctors working in Obs and Gynae and Paeds. While I was rooting around in the bookshop where I found ‘The Guardian’ Political Almanac 1993/4, I found another volume by a Top Doc of yesteryear – Dr Hugh Jolly. People who had children in the 1970s will never forget dear old Hugh Jolly, star of TV and radio. Hugh Jolly was the Top Doc to go to at that time in terms of advice re pregnancy, birth and child care. Jolly took over from Benjamin Spock, the guru of the previous generation.

I purchased – for £1 – Jolly’s ‘Book Of Child Care’ (1975), ‘a complete guide for today’s parents’, published by Sphere Books Ltd, of Gray’s Inn Road, London. The book came highly recommended by ‘Women’s Weekly’ – who described Dr Jolly as ‘England’s leading paediatrician – as well as ‘The Times’. There’s a nice photo of Hugh on the back cover, looking pompous but almost approachable, wearing a bow tie and what Viz magazine would call an ‘insincere smile’.

I had a quick flick through the volume and I was glad to find that Hugh was full of sensible advice, reassuring parents not to freak out about nudity, masturbation or other infant habits which can elicit over-reactions. Hugh does however warn his readers that children need to be warned about child molesters and thus one must tell them that they must ‘never accept lifts or go off with strangers because a few mentally ill people wish to harm little children’.

Hugh Jolly died in March 1986, two months before Oliver Brooke, the Professor of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School was jailed for the possession of child porn. Ollie was a key figure in the pan-European paedophile ring of which Dafydd et al in north Wales/Cheshire were a part. Many of Ollie’s colleagues at St George’s knew what he was doing and some of them assisted him.

The Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives Of The Fellows Online’ tells us that Hugh Jolly ‘was born in the Isle of Man, where his father was a Reverend Canon…Hugh was educated at Marlborough College and Sydney Sussex College, Cambridge, where he was in the water polo team, before proceeding to the London Hospital. He used to recall that even as a student he was fascinated by paediatrics, so much so that he would run the two miles from his teaching hospital to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children, Hackney, in order to arrive for the rounds on time – chewing sandwiches on the way.

Children in Hackney were targeted by organised abuse gangs as long ago as the 1950s and during the 1970s and 80s they were sent to children’s homes in north Wales and then trafficked back down to London (see post ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’). The Top Docs of the London Hospital knew what was happening.

[Jolly] qualified…in 1942. This was during the 1939-45 war and post-qualification jobs had to be few before joining the Services. Hugh’s were at the London [Hospital]. He then joined the RAMC, serving in the United Kingdom, Normandy and North West Europe; ending his service with the rank of captain and dermatologist to the Allied Forces in the Netherland East Indies, a speciality he quoted as being invaluable in his subsequent career.

After the war he renewed his acquaintance with paediatrics as house physician to Wilfrid Sheldon, later Sir Wilfrid, the first Royal paediatrician, at the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street. There was immediate empathy between them and they shared an enthusiasm for a clearer understanding of children’s illnesses, as well as a sense of humour and a lifelong love of gardening.

Hugh Jolly realized that to be a ‘whole’ paediatrician he needed a knowledge of paediatric surgery and at considerable personal and financial sacrifice (he was poor in those days) he opted to postpone promotion and become a house surgeon at the same hospital before climbing the usual medical ladder to senior registrar. In November 1951 he was appointed consultant in Plymouth; the first full-time paediatrician in an area which included large parts of Devon and Somerset as well as the whole of Cornwall. There were only part-time paediatricians in Taunton and Truro, between Bristol and Land’s End. For the first three months he elected to become a ‘resident’ again, at the Children’s Hospital, Cincinatti. Back in Plymouth, only a man of his enormous energy could have achieved so much. His new ‘cubicalized’ ward attracted innumerable admiring visitors, even from abroad. He broke the isolation of children in hospital by encouraging parents to live in with their children, as well as by daily visiting.

 

A Top Doctor Who Knew About The Horrors In North Wales Who Was Elected As A Labour MP For Plymouth In 1966, Retaining The Seat Until He Went To The Lords In April 1992, Days Before The Brighton Firebomb Killed Five Witnesses To The North Wales Child Abuse Scandal:

Official portrait of Lord Owen crop 2.jpg

 

Hugh made over 400 domiciliary visits annually, always with the general practitioner (the limit for payment was 200 visits), and he found time to visit prisoners in Princetown gaol to talk to the pre-release groups about the problems they would have to face on return to family life, and also to understand better the criminal mind.

During his first 10 years as a consultant he attended a vast number of medical meetings, where he always made penetrating and usually apposite remarks. In later years they were often more controversial. At this time he also managed to be honorary secretary of the paediatric section of the Royal Society of Medicine. There were no motorways to London then, so he travelled by car in the small hours. He infuriated his junior staff by doing a full ward round at about 4 a.m, with only the frightened night sister, before leaving for London. When the juniors came on duty at the normal time they had to sort out the myriad instructions left by ‘the boss’. They got their own back: Jolly crept in for his usual morning round, but this time he found his whole staff standing strictly to attention in starched white coats, or nurse’s uniforms.

I knew people who worked as Angels, including paediatric Angels, in the West Country in those days. I heard a great deal about the criminal wrongdoing in the NHS similar to that which prevailed in north Wales, but it seems to have been on a smaller scale in the West Country. It was however most definitely there and the people involved had links to Dafydd et al in north Wales.

Small wonder that in 1960 he was invited to join Doyne Bell at Charing Cross Hospital, London. In 1965 he became paediatrician in charge at Charing Cross, a post he retained until he retired in 1983. He turned his energies to the handicapped, and the child development centre at Charing Cross is a fitting memorial. He was also medical adviser to the Chailey Heritage Hospital. Generations of medical students flocked to his ward rounds and outpatients, as indeed did swarms of visitors – including many from overseas.

From 1961-62 he was seconded as professor of child health to University College, Ibadan, Nigeria. This fired his interest in the child health problems of the developing world, which continued until his death.

Jolly was probably the most widely travelled paediatrician. He would often suggest alterations to the running of a service which were clearly common sense, but sometimes his enthusiasm to improve a situation blinded him to local difficulties so that his efforts were counterproductive. Not surprisingly, his ideas would either be so welcome that he was invited to return or the reaction would be ‘Never again!’

Hugh was particularly welcome in Australia where he was a member of the Panel of Assessors, National Health and Medical Research Council, as well as adviser to ‘Parents’ Centres’ and the Nursing Mothers’ Association. His views on bereavement were movingly set out in a broadcast in Sydney in 1977 and later published: ‘Loss of a baby’, Aust.Paediatr. J. March 1978.

In the UK, there is still no support for parents who have lost a baby.

He examined abroad at the Universities of Benin and Nsukka, Nigeria; at Singapore and Riyadh, and at home for the Universities of Glasgow, Liverpool and London, as well as for the MRCP and DCH. As always, he demanded high standards which earned him a hawkish reputation, Other appointments included the Tropical Medicine Research Board, Medical Research Council, the advisory council of the British Society of Music Therapy, the editorial board of Excerpta Medica, the Bureau of Overseas Medical Service, the Down’s Children Association, the National Association for Hospital Play Staff, Nuclear Weapons FREEZE, Family Planning Association, Exploring Parenthood, and the Institute for Social Inventions – all examples of his catholic interest in wide areas of child care which was reflected in his departments both in Plymouth and at Charing Cross. Psychiatrists, psychologists and play therapists (Hugh was one of the first to introduce the latter) cooperated with him to establish a free and happy atmosphere where previously the rigidity of departments geared to adults had been the rule.

His first book, Sexual precocity, Springfield,111.,Thomas, 1955, gave the clearest understanding of the problem at that time and was a culmination of his thesis for MD Cantab, which won him the coveted Raymond Horton Smith prize. There followed a succession of books and articles, nearly all written in the small hours – sleep hardly seemed necessary. His student textbook Diseases of children, Oxford, Blackwell, first appeared in 1964; the fifth edition, in collaboration with M Levene, appeared in 1985 only shortly before his death. Its universal popularity speaks for its clarity and explains why it was translated into other languages. Even more widely successful was his Book of child care, London, Allen and Unwin, 1975, which ran to four editions and appeared in six other languages. His regular column in The Times during the 1970s culminated in collected articles (c.1973) entitled Common sense about babies and children, London, Unwin Paperbacks, 1983 and More common sense about babies, London, Pelham (also Sphere), 1978. Two new books appeared the year before he died: The First five years and The Grandparents’ handbook, London, Pagoda Books, 1985. In his later years he concentrated on bereavement and greatly influenced obstetricians, paediaticians and general practitioners to react more sympathetically to parents of stillbirths and miscarriages.

I’m not sure how Hugh Jolly influenced them because it is acknowledged that the treatment of such parents is still usually fairly brutal.

He also drew attention to the problem of the dying child. It was not surprising that the British Paediatric Association elected him an honorary member in 1985. He was also an honorary member of the section of paediatrics of the Royal Society of Medicine.

Through his numerous writings in medical and lay journals, and in newpapers, and by his appearances on television and his talks on radio, Hugh sought to establish a wider understanding of his patients: of their health, their behaviour, their illnesses and anxieties. This naturally involved parents and he was never happier than when talking through their difficulties. As a parent, it is unpleasant to hear oneself upbraided, but Jolly never spared the feelings of others if he believed he was acting in the best interests of his patient, whether the latter be newly born or a tyrannical teenager. He recognized that this upset parents, even to anger, but he would argue passionately in defence of his stance.

Translates as: ‘An absolute turd who lied about his own expertise and achievements, colluded with and concealed abuse and malpractice and utilised the time honoured method of blaming the patients.

 

Other media friendly Top Docs of the 1970s and 80s will have known of the abattoir in north Wales/Cheshire, including the star of the Mirror’s and ‘TV Times’ magazine’s ‘Dear Miriam’ pages, which so entertained Brown’s brother when he was a teenager:

 

Dr Miriam Stoppard's ultimate guide to anti-ageing ...

 

That’s the Auntie Miriam of Baroness Oona of Diversity and Blair:

 

Oona King

 

For information on Miriam’s links with those who ran the cesspit in north Wales and how she helped to keep it out of the media, see post ‘Comedies Of Menace’. For details of Baroness Oona and her extensive network of Wimmin and People With Radical Consciences, see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’

 

The impossibility of accessing NHS abortions in north Wales had another consequence that showed up as a statistical outlier by the 1990s, after pregnant women and their families began to resist the pressure from Top Docs to be ‘assessed’ at Denbigh by Dafydd – a very high rate of one parent families. ‘The Guardian’ Political Almanac 1993/4 tells us that the 1991 census showed that Arfon (the area of Gwynedd which includes Bangor and Caernarfon, but excludes Anglesey, the Llyn and south Gwynedd) was among the 20 local authorities in England and Wales with the highest proportion of one parent families. The figure for Arfon was exactly the same as the figure for Bradford and all other local authorities in the ‘Top 20′ were inner city areas known for social-economic disadvantage. Arfon is in rural north Wales, with a completely different linguistic and cultural profile. It sticks out like a sore thumb, of course people will have noticed.

Could this be why good sociologists were so unwelcome at Bangor University? Sociologists who could understand data sets and ask the right questions about the glaring anomalies, rather than just spout crap about Wimmin, Diversity and Equality?

Cardiff and Swansea featured in the Top 20 of Shame and Scroungers as well. All other local authorities in the Top 20 have now been revealed to have had a problem with grooming and trafficking gangs. Of course that could never have been the case in Cardiff, Swansea and Arfon, all those investigations and inquiries looked for the evidence but there was none, no evidence at all.

In 1992, the Welsh Office under John Major’s Gov’t published The Patient’s Charter for Wales (in April); the Parent’s Charter For Wales (in Sept) and the Tenants’ Charter for Wales (in Sept). The Secretary of State for Wales at the time was David Hunt, who did everything possible to collude with and conceal the crimes of Dafydd and the gang. The deaths of Empowered Service Users, the abuse of kids in care and Empowered Service Users living in accommodation so bad that someone in Llanberis was reputed to be living in a cave continued apace after the publication of the Charters.

The Angel who was the key worker for the Empowered Service User who was living a cave near Llanberis was a man called Jed (or Ged).

‘We didn’t know.’

 

‘The Guardian’ Political Almanac 1993/4 also contained some data sets concerning the historical clear-up rates for different police forces in England and Wales. In 1979, the North Wales Police had one of the best clear up rates! However did they manage that when Dafydd’s gang had such a grip on the region that in 1978 a respectable middle aged university secretary was arrested, illegally imprisoned, banged up in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh for a year and none of the very serious white collar criminals involved ever stood trial? Clues as to the origins of the exemplary performance of the North Wales Police can be found in my post ‘Top Of The Cops’.

 

The Top Docs are being skilfully edited when they are interviewed in the media at the moment. Yesterday’s guest on Desert Island Discs was the neurosurgeon Henry Marsh, who was gushed over by the hideous Scottish woman who presents that programme. Henry trotted out his Media Narrative – I’ve heard it many times before, Henry has it well-rehearsed. He went to Oxford to do PPE, wasn’t happy, had an ill fated fling with an older lady, had a nervous breakdown, went into therapy at the hands of the Top Docs in Oxford and gosh were they good, Henry made a splendid recovery, landed a job as a porter in a hospital – one of the Top Docs got him the job – and Henry’s utter brilliance was spotted by a surgeon there who invited him into the theatre to watch surgery and at that point everyone realised that Henry Had To Be A Neurosurgeon. Thus it came to pass. As he reassured the Scottish gusher that he wasn’t an arrogant grandiose bastard, Henry selected a couple of Ry Cooder tracks along with the classical music to let us know that he was Down With The Kids. Henry did mention in passing that the problem with Top Docs earning big salaries is that some of them, just the odd few, can become corrupted. It’s not a big problem in the UK though, because they don’t earn enough for that to be happening.

At no point did Henry mention where he now teaches. Henry Marsh teaches at St George’s. Henry did fess up to working at the Atkinson Morley Hospital many moons ago, but he failed to explain that he has spent most of his career at the Atkinson Morley, which was the neurosurgical hospital attached to St George’s. Henry worked at the Atkinson Morley when I worked at St George’s and they were colluding with Dafydd’s gang and still facilitating the massive ring of which Ollie Brooke had been a major part just three years previously.

Professor Tom Burns, now of Oxford University, working alongside Bangor’s own Mindfulness guru Professor Mark Williams who previously worked with Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot), worked at the Atkinson Morley in 1990, when I told him what Dafydd et al were doing. Tom Burns told me face to face that he believed me, that he knew that this was going on, that ‘psychiatry attracts disturbed people’ and it was a big problem. Tom then wrote to Nicky Mitchell-Heggs, the corrupt Occupational Health physician at St George’s and told him that he thought that I had a paranoid personality disorder. In Dec 1991, when Tony and Sadie Francis had me arrested on the basis of their perjury, unbeknown to me Mitchell-Heggs contacted Burns to ask for his ‘help’, but he refused, saying that he ‘had nothing to offer’ me. Burns was outed as an abusive psychiatrist in a fly on the wall Channel 4 documentary not long after I left St George’s and not long after that Burns joined the merry crew at Oxford’s Dept of Psychiatry.

Tom Burns is a Gov’t adviser and he was responsible for the introduction of Community Treatment Orders, which have been imposed on thousands of people who are being forcibly injected with anti-psychotic medication in the comfort of their own homes, if, deemed necessary, while being held down by police officers. Burns was told when he came up with his stroke of genius that this would be the result and he sneered heartily at the suggestion that Top Docs and Angels would ever do such things. Burns has recently admitted that CTOs ‘have not worked as I expected’ and he’s asking for them to be scrapped. They won’t be, because they are bloody well there now and ooh they play an important role in the treatment of loonies who Stop Their Medication.

I have received info telling me that my private meeting with Burns in 1990 was filmed by the security services. Because of Ollie Brooke, MI5 had the whole of St George’s wired. They have footage of me giving Burns the full details of my encounters with Dafydd et al and Burns snapping at me ‘You think I don’t believe you? You think I’m an idiot don’t you? I do believe you, I know that it is going on…’

Then bloody well make a statement about it Burns, because a linked ring was operating in your own place of work. Witnesses and children were murdered.

See previous posts for full details of my Tom Burns Experiences.

I have no idea whether Henry Marsh was one of those colluding with the gangs, but he knew that his colleagues were not behaving as they should. He worked at St George’s throughout the Chamberlain-Pearce Scandal, throughout the Stuart Campbell Scandal and throughout the Rashmi Varma Scandal… (See eg. post ‘Now Then…’) All these were big, big cases involving research fraud, criminal misconduct, patient harm, all at St George’s within a few short years of each other. One of Henry Marsh’s neurosurgeon colleagues from Atkinson Morley used to pop over to visit the lab at St George’s where I worked. He was friends with my former colleague, the dreadful Deb Everard, who was concealing the criminal malpractice in the Obs and Gynae Dept (see previous posts)…

But what could be expected? The Dean/Principal of St George’s was Sir William Asscher, who was headhunted from the University Hospital Cardiff, after Ollie Brooke was jailed and the previous Dean deposed. Asscher had spent his whole career in Cardiff concealing George Thomas’s offending in south Wales and Dafydd and the gang in north Wales. Which is why he was called to help out at Paedophilia Grande in south London when disaster hit. See previous posts.

Desert Island Discs informed us that Henry Marsh’s stint as a porter took place at a hospital in the north east of England, the region which fed staff and children in care to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. He then bagged a place to read medicine at the Royal Free in Hampstead, another stronghold of Dafydd’s mates and the hospital where Stuart Goddard aka Adam Ant was so appallingly treated that his mates got him out of there into a private hospital. Adam tried to talk to the media about the Royal Free, but a court order from a Top Doctor soon stopped that on the grounds that Adam didn’t know his own mind…

Duncan Orme kick-started his career in NHS management after doing all those favours for Dafydd and the traffickers with a training place at the Royal Free back in the 1980s…

So Henry Marsh has dropped in on all of Dafydd’s mates during his education and career. Henry Marsh may not be Of Dafydd, but he definitely knows about him.

 

The chaos in the Labour Party continues. They’ve been holding their conference in Liverpool and Dawn Butler, the Shadow Secretary of State for Wimmin and Equalities, made a speech in which she hailed the Militant-dominated Liverpool City Council of the 1980s, for ‘standing up to Thatcher and refusing to accept rate capping.’ They did indeed refuse to set a rate Dawn, but had the City Council not been part of Dafydd’s Crime Empire (see post ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’) and colluding with the trafficking gang, they could have brought Thatcher down by grassing up Peter Morrison and Jimmy Savile, who were personal friends of hers. Degsy knew about the gang (see post ‘I Warn You…’), Eric and Doris Heffer knew about the gang, John Hamilton knew about the gang, all the Militant Councillors knew about them. Liverpool sent children and vulnerable people to homes in north Wales and exported their drug addicts there as well. The gang also abused kids in institutions in Liverpool, including schools, children’s homes, hospitals and prisons. They ran the city. See previous posts.

When Degsy and two other Liverpool City Councillors were done for financial corruption in 1993, the trial was held in Mold Crown Court and the Presiding judge was Sir Ronnie Waterhouse. Waterhouse ordered the jury to acquit Degsy and pals. The trial was part of a much bigger police operation into civic corruption in Liverpool which collapsed because of the acquittals. See previous posts.

The family of the former Labour MP for Bootle, Michael Carr, might not agree with Dawn Butler that Militant created a paradise on Merseyside. Michael Carr was democratically elected after fighting Militant. Militant ran Walton Hospital, along with Dafydd’s mates. Michael Carr was in office for only 57 days before he died in 1990. He died after seeking help, twice, from Walton Hospital, after suffering a heart attack. Carr was told that he was just anxious, told to make an appointment to see his GP, put in a taxi and sent home. He died shortly afterwards. The conduct of the staff of Walton Hospital was considered to have justified criminal charges against them. The prosecution was blocked by the then DPP, Dame Barbara Mills, the sister-in-law of David Mills, who was married to Tessa Jowell. For the full details of Michael Carr’s slaying for spilling the pints of the paedophile gang, see post ‘News From Sicily’.

Michael Carr died in July 1990. In the middle of the North Wales Police investigation into the possible existence of a paedophile ring in north Wales and Cheshire. It was in July 1990 that four members of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team – two of whom had never met me – perjured themselves in Chester Court in an attempt to have me imprisoned. Fourteen charges against me were thrown out when it was clear that those giving evidence had lied repeatedly. There was no investigation into the perjury. The Court and judge were changed at the last minute and my barrister wasn’t told. She was sent to the wrong court. Documents now in my possession demonstrate that Gwynedd County Council knew about the change of venue and judge well in advance and a handwritten note was sent to the Arfon perjurers by the County Council’s lawyers – most probably by the crooked lawyer Ron Evans, who it is evident from my documents had worked for months to fit me up – providing them with instructions as how to get to the right court. They were also told to introduce themselves to the clerk of the court who would be expecting them and would tell them what to say and do in court and show them the affidavits with which they had to ‘familiarise themselves’. Which suggests that they hadn’t see those affidavits before, which they had sworn and signed a few days previously. For full details and names of the perjurers, as well as the corrupt lawyers and barristers involved, see post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’.

The Presiding judge – who, when the perjurers were caught red handed offered them more time to re-write their affidavits and bellowed at my barrister when she did finally arrive at the right court – was Justice John Roch, a mate of Sir Ronnie Waterhouse. Roch was rewarded for his services to an international trafficking gang by subsequently being appointed a Lord Justice of Appeal.

The Walton Hospital closed down years ago, but the staff were relocated to new hospitals, one of which was The Walton Centre. Which was where Nerys the Bangor sociologist who spilt the paedophiles’ pints back in the mid-1990s was told that there was ‘nothing that could be done’ by the Top Docs for her brain tumour and she died not long afterwards. At about the same time, a member of the trafficking gang developed a brain tumour and was treated by The Walton Centre. All the boats were pushed out and she made a full recovery. Dafydd’s mates ran The Walton Centre. See post ‘In Memoriam – Professor Robert Owen’.

It’s called Serious Organised Crime Dawn, they did not Bravely Stand Up To Thatch, they were gangsters who controlled the High Courts and they murdered people who got in their way.

 

The Baroness of Ely aka Eluned Morgan has got her hopes up with regard to her chances of becoming the next FM of Wales now that Mark Drakeford, the Hot Favourite, has encountered a bit of bad PR after his son was jailed for eight years for a violent rape (see post and comments following post ‘I Predict A Riot’). The Baroness has appeared in the media explaining that it would be outrageous if all the contenders were men. I think that it’s outrageous that all the contenders have colluded with and concealed a paedophile gang. The Baroness is telling everyone who will listen that she wants to be accepted on her own merits.

Readers who have been following this blog for a while will remember the source of entertainment that the Baroness provided some months ago. See previous posts.

Here’s a resume of the highlights of the Baroness who has made it on her own merits:

The Baroness’s dad was the Rev Bob Morgan, who was for years a South Glamorgan County Councillor and the Leader of the Labour group on the Council. Labour Councillors dominated South Glamorgan County Council. The Rev Bob, along with the rest of South Glamorgan County Council, ignored the abuse of children in care in south Wales and kept quiet about George Thomas’s assaults on children. The Rev Bob was involved with some charidee work with George Thomas. The Rev Bob was also one of the Councillors who gave the green light to the massive scam which was the development of Cardiff Bay, which transferred millions and millions of quid from the taxpayer into the pockets of a small number of already rich businessmen who were mates with Nicholas Edwards, Thatcher’s  Secretary Of State For Wales and of course Edwards himself. Other beneficiaries were the Councillors of South Glamorgan County Council. See post ‘Corruption Bay Special’.

After the Baroness pulled herself up by her own bootstraps by attending Atlantic College, she did a degree in European Studies at Hull University. There was a trafficking ring in the Hull area linked with the rings in north and south Wales. Prezza of the Two Jags served as the MP for Hull for years, including when the Baroness was at university there. Prezza was Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and Deputy PM.

After graduation, the Baroness worked as a researcher for S4C, Agenda TV and the BBC. S4C and the BBC knew about the organised abuse in Wales but didn’t mention a word, although they frequently invited Dafydd on TV as an ‘expert’ to give his opinion.

In 1990, the Baroness served as an intern in the European Parliament for the Socialist Group. When the Baroness bagged that post, Llew Smith was the Labour MEP for South Wales East. Llew stood down in 1994 because the Windbag’s wife wanted the job. Llew wasn’t on the streets though, because in 1992, he’d been elected as the Labour MP for Blaenau Gwent, succeeding Michael Foot. The Rev Bob will have heard of him. In 1994, the Windbag came over all European as well and was appointed the European Commissioner for Transport. The lives of Famille Windbag since then are European Gravy Train History.

The Windbag’s son is married to the PM of Demark and their daughter, like the Baroness, went to Atlantic College. The husband of the PM of Denmark tried to keep it quiet, but he was outed online. The Baroness sat on the governing body of Atlantic College.

In 1994 the Baroness Of Ely became the MEP for Mid and West Wales and being the prodigy that she is, when she took her seat, the Baroness was the youngest MEP in the European Parliament. For her maiden speech, the Baroness sung ‘I Did It My Way’. The Baroness was re-elected in 1999 and 2005.

The Baroness was also the Labour Party’s European spokesperson on Energy, Industry and Science. She was responsible for drafting the European Parliament’s response to the Energy Green Paper and also took the lead role in negotiating on behalf of the Parliament the revision of the Electricity Directive. The Baroness stood down at the 2009 European Parliament elections. On leaving the Parliament she worked as the Director of National Development for SSE in Wales (SWALEC) from 2009 to June 2013, where she was responsible for establishing the new SWALEC Smart Energy Centre in Treforest. She was appointed Chair of the Cardiff Business Partnership. The Baroness is unacquainted with the term ‘conflict of interest’.

In Nov 2010 it was announced that the Baroness was to join Lord and Lady Windbag of Outrageous Troughing and Nepotism in the Lords. By Nov 2010 there were loud demands from all quarters for the police to reopen the investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and for the cover-up which was the Waterhouse Inquiry to be reviewed.

In 2015 the Baroness was selected as a candidate for the 2016 Assembly election on the Mid and West Wales regional list. It’s great being on the regional list if everybody thinks that you’re a total idiot who has landed every position that you’ve ever got by being the Rev Bob’s daughter, because you don’t have to win an election to bag a seat.

 

The Baroness attended Atlantic College, which if it isn’t the most expensive public school in Wales, is the second most expensive. The Baroness stressed that she won a scholarship to Atlantic College. Scholarships to Atlantic College were available from South Glamorgan County Council, which was where the Baroness got hers from. When the Rev Bob led the Council.

The Baroness served on the Welsh Labour Party Executive for ten years and was appointed to the Welsh Assembly Advisory Group which was responsible for developing the standing orders of the National Assembly of Wales. She was a founding member of the Yes for Wales Cross Party group which campaigned for the Assembly to be established. So the Baroness created her own future job which certainly showed initiative, although I’m sure that she received a guiding hand from the Rev Bob.

The Baroness is a Fellow of Trinity College Carmarthen, which has long been run by the paedophiles’ friends and trained the Paedophile Of Ponty and S4C, John Owen (see post ‘Yet More Inglorious Bastards’). The Baroness is an Honorary Distinguished Professor and Fellow of Cardiff University. She was Chair of Live Music Now in Wales, a charidee which sends talented young musicians to care homes and special schools and demonstrates the transformational impact of music. Which must be the explanation for the low standards and constant abuse/neglect scandals in Wales’s care homes and special schools.

The Baroness is married to Rev Dr Rhys Jenkins who is a GP and also a non-stipendiary priest. So he concealed organised abuse in his capacity both as a Top Doctor and a Vicar. 

I won’t know whether to roll around laughing if the Baroness becomes FM or to metamorphose into this:

The Public Inquiry into the ‘Tainted Blood’ Scandal has begun, to investigate how thousands of NHS patients were treated with blood products infected with Hep B, Hep C and in subsequent years, HIV. I haven’t had any time at all to research the background of those involved with the Inquiry, but if they want to save themselves a bit of time and bother, they’re welcome to read the posts that I wrote about it months ago.

The first problems began when Dr Death was a junior Minister in the DHSS. He knew that the NHS was using blood which was likely to be infected and talked about the importance of addressing the problem, but being Dr Death, he had far more important things to prioritise, like trying to become PM. The problem became far, far more serious under Thatcher’s Gov’t, because by then HIV had hit the US and people infected with HIV sold their blood, which was then purchased by the UK NHS. Thatch was told that buying blood products from the US was very, very dangerous because they were known to be infected. She ignored everyone on the grounds that buying blood products from the US was cheaper than keeping the UK MRC lab open, which was screening and treating blood products. The MRC lab was shut, infected blood was purchased from the US and thousands of people in the UK were given infected blood. Everyone knew that it was happening, including the Top Docs. No-one was told because we’re not allowed to Talk Down The NHS. The Tory junior Minister most culpable was Lord Simon Glenarthur, who was later a Director of the MDU. Ken Clarke was involved as well when he was at the DoH.

Get over it everyone, the Top Doctors have been given so much power that they kill people and no-one dares admit it was them wot did it. Simon Glenarthur was probably too thick to understand the very real danger of using infected blood products but the Top Docs knew exactly what was going to happen. They did not warn anyone. Thousands of people died.

I Predict A Riot

I mentioned in a comment which followed my post ‘Tan yn Llyn’ that Simon Thomas, who was Plaid AM for Mid and West Wales, 2011-18 and the Plaid MP for Ceredigion, 2000-05, has been charged with making indecent images of children (ie. downloading child porn). Thomas is due to appear in court in October.

Then three days ago a brief piece appeared on BBC News Wales Online stating that Mark Drakeford’s 31 year old son had been convicted of rape. Brown saw a report which stated that he had also been charged with child grooming and assault. Mark Drakeford is currently running for the leadership of Welsh Labour/Carwyn’s successor as FM. Drakeford has the backing of most Labour AMs in his quest to succeed Carwyn.

Presumably those Labour MPs backing Drakeford knew that his son was on trial for rape.

Drakeford believes that he is a feminist, has spent his entire career banging on about empowering wimmin and vulnerable people and is a big mate of Jane Hutt and Julie Morgan, who have also spent decades banging on about empowering wimmin and vulnerable people.

Hutt, Julie Morgan and Drakeford are all former social workers. Julie Morgan and Drakeford worked as social workers for Councils who had a problem with the kids in their care being abused by organised gangs. Morgan was the Assistant Director of Barnardo’s when Barnardo’s staff were involved with child abuse, including in north Wales.

Drakeford was a social worker for Dyfed County Council, when it hosted a paedophile gang with links to the gang in north Wales. Drakeford then worked as a social worker in Cardiff, including as a team leader for a Barnardo’s project, lectured at Swansea and Cardiff Universities and was Professor of Social Policy and Applied Social Sciences at Cardiff University, 2003-13. Cardiff University concealed the abuse of children and vulnerable people for decades, including the crimes of Dafydd’s gang in north Wales.

Drakeford was Rhodri Morgan’s Spad when Rhodri became FM. Drakeford succeeded Rhodri as the AM for Cardiff West in 2011 when the Ale Twat stepped down.

Drakeford was Wales’s Health Minister, 2013-16. I have previously blogged about Drakeford ignoring correspondence from me regarding research fraud and abuses in the NHS in north Wales and of course the Tawel Fan Scandal exploded on Drakeford’s watch as well (see previous posts). Other shameful incidents in Wales’s NHS occurred when Drakeford was Health Minister as well.

Brecon War Memorial Hospital was embroiled in scandal after whistleblowers alleged that an elderly stroke victim was slapped in bed by a carer and visiting families were forced to bring in food to keep their starving relatives alive. It was alleged that falsification of notes at the hospital was ‘routine practice’, that staff were drunk on duty, that Angels were put to bed because they were drunk and then woken up before the day staff arrived. A convicted sex-offender was working as a care assistant.

At Ysbyty Cwm Cynon in Mountain Ash, 10 hospital workers were suspended following the death of an elderly woman who was found with ‘unexplained and serious injuries’ on a ward.

One nurse blew the whistle on the neglect and abuse of patients at the Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend, yet even following her concerns, Lillian Williams, 82, died after a catalogue of neglect as the hospital. In total, two deaths at the Princess of Wales hospital occurred after a review recommended changes in practices which should have ensured patient safety’. Meanwhile, Angels in Bridgend were investigated by police for allegedly drugging elderly and difficult patients to enjoy a quiet night shift.

These were just some of the cases which received media attention. I knew for a fact that while Drakeford was Health Minister, neglect, abuse and serious misconduct were endemic throughout Wales’s NHS and was ignored and/or concealed by Drakeford.

Drakeford was Health Minister when I was unlawfully detained at Wrexham Maelor Hospital after being violently assaulted by a barrister’s daughter, in front of witnesses, in Machynlleth. The assault was never investigated – although I had visible injuries – because I was er, unlawfully detained by a Top Doctor and social workers when I went to the police to report it. After I had been at Wrexham Maelor for 24 hours or so, I was told by the ward manager that because the appropriate paperwork had not been signed at the police station in Aberystwyth, I had been detained unlawfully and I was therefore free to leave. So I did.

Wrexham Maelor immediately reported me ‘missing’, placed adverts in the press along with my mugshot and I was subsequently apprehended by a mental health team in Cumbria, where I was on a walking holiday. They were good enough to compile a report which they sent to Wrexham Maelor stating that I was not an escaped nutter but a woman on a walking holiday. Further newspaper reports appeared in north Wales, placed by Wrexham Maelor, demanding that the escaped nutter that was me should be apprehended. Which I was – when I was in Scotland, continuing my holiday. I was sectioned – again unlawfully – detained in the appallingly abusive Parkhead Hospital in the east end of Glasgow and after many weeks, was transferred to Wrexham Maelor. Where it was yet more months before I was released. Drakeford knew about all of this, because I and friends constantly made representation about what was happening and the laws which were being broken.

The reason that was given by the Top Doctors at Parkhead and then Wrexham Maelor for me being ‘seriously mentally ill’ was that I continually alleged that there had been a paedophile gang operating in north Wales who had targeted me and that there was serious abuse and neglect of patients in the NHS in north Wales. I was sitting in Parkhead Hospital when the BBC reported that John Allen and other members of the North Wales/Cheshire paedophile gang had just been convicted and jailed. A Top Doctor was sitting next to me, in front of the TV, when that was broadcast. I asked her to listen to what was being reported. I was ignored and told that I would be transferred to Wrexham ‘where they know all about you’. I had been sitting in the locked ward at Wrexham Maelor for some two or three weeks when the BBC reported that Tawel Fan Ward at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd had been suddenly closed and the police had been called in to investigate allegations of serious patient abuse. I was still not released… The full story can be read in earlier posts on this blog.

No complaint of mine about this whole bloody nightmare – which lasted over a year, on Drakeford’s watch – was ever investigated.

Drakeford cannot use the excuse that he inherited a mess from previous Health Ministers, although he did inherit a mess in so far that they too simply ignored complaints and concealed criminality. Drakeford has no excuses because Drakeford was Rhodri Morgan’s key adviser on health and social services throughout the Ale Twat’s whole time as FM.

Drakeford is a man most concerned with the Poor and who wishes to Empower Service Users. Which is why, when Drakeford became Health Minister, the BMA issued a statement ‘welcoming’ his appointment. They probably held a champagne breakfast to celebrate, the ultimate paedpophiles’ friend was in post and lined up to fulfil his long held ambition of becoming PM.

Drakeford supports, and has received support, from Jeremy Corbyn. Like Drakeford, Jeremy has spent an entire life maintaining that he is of the left, while ignoring a vicious trafficking gang under his nose at Islington. That gang was linked to the gangs in Wales with whom Drakeford worked and subsequently concealed.

I have enjoyed some of Drakeford’s academic publications and have cited them in my own work. But while publishing about the damage that neoliberalism has wreaked upon the UK and opposing policies such as PFI hospitals which have indeed caused havoc in the NHS, Drakeford, in his capacity as a political adviser and then a politician, systematically colluded with serious organised crime within the welfare services, ignored patient harm and joined forces with some of the most highly paid people in Wales to do this. While he did this, Wales heard nothing but praise from him for the patient-batterers and paedophiles with whom he was colluding.

The Welsh Assembly is stuffed to the rafters with people who either worked or colluded with the trafficking gangs which operated across Wales in the 1970s, 80s and 90s. If there are many more convictions, I suggest that someone takes a leaf out of the book of Peru, where there are now calls to dissolve the Parliament as a result of the endemic, entrenched corruption prevailing.

 

Rhodri Morgan, Drakeford’s buddy and patron, was AM for Cardiff West, 1999-11. He was Leader of Welsh Labour and FM, 2000-09, after another paedophiles’ friend, Alun Michael, resigned (see post ‘News From Sicily’). Alun Michael scuttled off just as the Waterhouse Report was published. Alun Michael was famously imposed upon Wales by Blair. No-one wanted Michael, but Miranda decided that Wales was going to bloody well have him anyway. Once the necessary was done, Michael resigned, getting the hell out of there before the aftermath…

So Wales then got Rhodri, every bit as much of a paedophiles’ friend as Alun Michael, but an Ale Drinking Twat of a paedophiles’ friend who had not aligned himself with New Labour and was known to be disliked by Miranda, which served Rhodri very well in Wales because Wales never embraced Miranda and the Third Way.

However, no matter how much guff was spouted by Rhodri and Drakeford about the ‘clear red water’ between Cardiff Bay and Miranda’s bunch in Westminster, Miranda et al continued to give the orders and because those in the Welsh Assembly were concealing the same criminal activity as Miranda was, they did what Miranda told them, because Miranda was bigger and more powerful than them. Miranda, in turn, did what the likes of Dubya told him.

‘Yo, Blair, what are you doing?’

‘Whatever you are telling me to.’

 

  • Iraq war inquiry blocked in bid to make Bush-Blair 'kick ...
  • Tony Blair made deal with George Bush over military action ...
  • Iraq report to include Blair-Bush talks - POLITICO
  • MI6 and CIA were told before invasion that Iraq had no ...

 

As Tony Benn quipped, you must not commit murder unless George Bush tells you to do so. I enjoyed hearing that, but Tony Benn was someone else who ignored serious organised crime in the NHS/social services, even when I wrote and told him about it (see post ‘No Cuts’).

 

Rhodri had a long and glorious political history which stretched back many years before he became an AM, back into the Dark Ages when as young men he and the Windbag shared a house. It actually stretched back to Rhodri’s childhood, Rhodri coming from a rather more privileged background than his image suggested. See previous posts…

Rhodri was an MP long before he was an AM, he served as the MP for Cardiff West, 1987-01. Rhodri succeeded the Tory Stefan Terlezki, who also knew about the trafficking gangs and was elected in 1983. The previous MP for Cardiff West had been the serial child molester, friend of Thatch, Harold Wilson and the Royal Family, as well as leading light in the Methodist Church, George Thomas, who had held the seat since 1945. George Thomas’s offending was widely known to Parliament, the police and the legal and medical establishment. See post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’. The Top Doctors loved George Thomas because in return for them keeping their mouths shut and treating his STIs, George Thomas ensured that they received the millions necessary to build the flagship University Hospital/Medical School at the Heath in Cardiff by raiding the NHS budget and starving the rest of the NHS in Wales of cash (see post ‘The Great Stink’) and Thomas enthusiastically supported medical charidees.

Dr Elinor Kapp, a child psychiatrist from Gwent, was a leading light in the George Thomas Trust from its foundation. The George Thomas Trust now calls itself the City Hospice, no-one wishing to bear George Thomas’s name now that his offending has been made public. Elinor Kapp was married to Kenneth Rawnsley, the Professor of Psychological Medicine at Cardiff. Rawnsley and I am sure, Elinor Kapp as well, provided a huge umbrella for Dafydd and Gwynne for many, many years (see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’). It was Rawnsley who was responsible for ‘inspecting and maintaining standards’ in psychiatric services across the whole of Wales. Rawnsley knew about the Dafydd’s Denbigh Dungeon full of illegally imprisoned victims of the trafficking gang and the lobotomies which were going on up there, even after it was stated that they had stopped.

The daughter of ‘Davey Crockett’, an Angel who was one of Dafydd’s key henchmen at Denbigh, became a social worker and worked as a senior social worker in the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, a post which was established as a result of Sir Ronald Waterhouse’s recommendations to ensure that It Never Happened Again. Every Children’s Commissioner for Wales has been a senior social worker who worked alongside abusers and remained silent when they did so. Mark Drakeford loves the Children’s Commissioners, he’s been mates with all of them and the current Commissioner, Professor Sally Holland, was one of his colleagues at Cardiff University. For more information about the farce which has been the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, see post ‘Yet More Inglorious Bastards’.

Dr Tony Francis, Dafydd’s colleague who was fully on board with the trafficking gang, trained as a Top Doctor at Cardiff, where he knew the Windbag and then worked as a psychiatrist under Rawnsley et al (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’). Francis knew about George Thomas years before Thomas’s status as a serial child sex offender became public knowledge.

Previous posts (‘Workers’ Play Time’ and ‘Security, Security’) described how Tony Francis, Dafydd and the gang, in collaboration with Risley Remand Centre and the Mental Health Act Commission, drew up an elaborate plan to have me framed and imprisoned for a serious crime in the weeks before the General Election of 1987. The plan was supposed to culminate in my arrest days after Rhodri was elected, but things went pear shaped as a result of nursing officer Jeff Crowther and Sergeant Morgan in Bangor Police Station refusing to tell the lies which were required of them (see eg. posts ‘You Know I’m No Good…’).

I have described how the Top Doctors and the politicians who were colluding with them were at fever pitch in 1987, because the net seemed to be closing in on the gangs all across the UK. The distress flare was sent up in Dec 1986, when Professor Oliver Brooke, the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School, was imprisoned for the possession of child porn. Tony Francis had assisted Dafydd with having me unlawfully arrested and imprisoned in Denbigh some two or three days before Ollie pleaded guilty. The Great British Establishment came to everyone’s rescue in May 1987 – days before the General Election – when Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane released Ollie on appeal, after declaring that the poor Top Doc had suffered enough and that his collection of kiddie porn was the equivalent of a collection of cigarette cards. See previous posts. Ollie was a key figure in a pan-European trafficking gang, of which the gangs across the UK were a part of.

Tony Francis’s desperation to have me declared dangerous and banged up had begun escalating out of all proportion during 1986, as described in previous posts. He was of course livid that I was complaining about what was going on in north Wales, but he will have known that Brooke was under investigation and had then been arrested. The ring in north Wales had a direct link to the ring facilitated by St George’s. After Ollie’s arrest and public disgrace, St George’s reassured the world that of course Ollie was a one-off, ‘we didn’t know’ and that such a thing could never happen again. Ollie’s mates who were facilitating the trafficking ring all remained in post in south London. To demonstrate that Heads Had Rolled, St George’s deposed the Dean and acquired a New Broom. That was Sir William Asscher, a Top Doctor, a kidney specialist, from Cardiff.

Asscher was really rated in Wales’s NHS, because he had been responsible for establishing the nephrology service across Wales, including the service at Ysbyty Gwynedd. Asscher’s kind old heart also led him to establish a kidney research charidee, which in later years evolved into a charidee which robustly supported transplant donation. Asscher’s charidee enjoyed the support of every MP for a Welsh constituency and in June 1990, while I was working at St George’s, those MPs held a bonanza on College Green to give Asscher’s charidee as much free PR as possible, after Asscher’s charidee had announced that it would be expanding its base from kidney research/services and was now going to begin campaigning on organ donation as well (see post ‘The Paedophiles’ Friends of Cardiff North’). Three MPs who were particularly supportive of Asscher’s charidee were David Hunt, then then Secretary of State for Wales, Rhodri Morgan and Alun Michael.

It was in the summer of 1990 that Gwynedd Health Authority tried to obtain a High Court injunction which would have stopped me even writing to them in an attempt to follow up my very serious complaints. During the hearing in Cardiff, in front of Sir Justice Malcolm Pill, the court read numerous documents which detailed the most serious abuse of patients in north Wales. Gwynedd Health Authority did not get the injunction which they had requested, but Pill and every barrister made no comment at all about the catalogue of neglect and abuse of patients that was detailed in the evidence. It was Andrew Park, the crooked lawyer who was employed by the Welsh Office, who had advised Gwynedd Health Authority on applying for that injunction. When GHA didn’t obtain it, Park wrote to Lucille Hughes and the crooked lawyer Ron Evans who was employed by Gwynedd County Council, requesting that they should all ‘share information’ in order for Gwynedd Health Authority to achieve an injunction preventing me from even writing with regard to my complaints. See post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’.

Many Welsh Office Ministers of varying political hues have held the seat of Cardiff North. The constituency includes affluent areas in which many NHS and Social Services staff reside who work for organisations which have been complicit with the abuse of children and vulnerable people. The MP for Cardiff North, 1997-2010, was Julie Morgan. Since 2011, the AM for Cardiff North has been, er, Julie Morgan.

 

Wales led the way in establishing an Office of the Children’s Commissioner and just a few years ago, Wales led the UK once more when the Welsh Gov’t became the first in the UK to adopt an ‘assumed consent’ policy for organ donation. Sir William Asscher’s proud legacy! So if you peg out in Wales, your organs will be harvested unless you have bothered to resister yourself as ‘opting out’. Because the NHS in Wales is endemically corrupt and data is routinely falsified, I’m not sure that the opt out register can be relied upon any way. It was Edwina Hart who tried to become a superstar on the back of this policy which will Save Lives. That’s the Edwina who ignored the serious crime in the NHS of which I sent her documentary evidence, crime committed by those who had been involved in the trafficking gang in north Wales. The Welsh Gov’t have shouted loudly about their flagship policy without exploring the legal and ethical implications for citizenship – if you live in Wales, your body is now the property of the state. Neither did anyone mention that the rates of organ donation were low in Wales not because patients are Selfish Bastards, but because so many people died in the sort of circumstances in which Ann Clwyd’s husband did at the University Hospital in Cardiff and the subsequent distress and bad feeling resulted in Top Doctors knowing that it would probably not be a good idea to then ask the dead person’s nearest and dearest if they could harvest the organs.

The solution? Pass a law enabling the Top Docs to remove the organs without consent and there’ll be no more problems. Perish the thought that we might start addressing the terrible care and distressing death bed scenes which still cause some relatives to cry when they remember them five years later.

 

When Ann Clwyd dared stand up in the Commons and gave an account of the dreadful circumstances in which her husband died in the University Hospital, Cardiff, she was roundly insulted from all angles by those who Love The NHS. Comments relating to Ann’s previous support for the Iraq War appeared on websites, along with observations about her flash car and even her expensive curtains. These matters were totally irrelevant in relation to the circumstances of her husband’s death, it still should never ever have happened. However, with reference to ‘as ye sow, so shall ye reap’, I will remind readers of the following.

 

Ann Clwyd was born in Denbighshire and raised in Flintshire. She was educated at Holywell Grammar School and the Queen’s School, Chester, before graduating from UCNW (Bangor University). Clwyd was a student teacher at Hope School in Flintshire, before training as a journo. She worked for BBC Wales as a studio manager and then became Welsh correspondent for ‘The Guardian’ and ‘Observer’, 1964–79. She is a member of the NUJ and TGWU. Ann first stood for election to the Commons after being encouraged to do so by Huw Thomas Edwards, trade union leader and politician, who felt that there should be more women in Parliament.

Huw T. Edwards grew up near Bangor, where his dad worked as a quarryman. Edwards and his brother worked on farms at Tal-y-Bont, which is just down the road from Bethesda, where Dafydd grew up. When still a young man, Edwards moved to Tonypandy in the south Wales coalfield. After serving in WWI, Edwards returned to what is now Gwynedd, to Penmaenmawr quarry. He joined the Workers’ Union and the ILP (Independent Labour Party). Edwards subsequently joined the Dockers’ Union in around 1920, leaving the Amalgamated Union of Quarryworkers and Steelworkers, which represented most quarry workers. Edwards was dismissed from his job at the quarry because he refused to rejoin the quarryworkers’ union after strike action. In 1923, Edwards became Secretary of the Penmaenmawr branch of the TGWU, which allowed him to meet with other union leaders. In 1927, he was elected to Penmaenmawr Council. Edwards was appointed the first Chair of the Council for Wales and Monmouthshire in 1949. He opposed the decision to flood the Tryweryn valley to create a reservoir to provide water for Liverpool. Dafydd, as a young medical student in Liverpool, was involved in the campaign against Tryweryn and in this capacity, Dafydd made links with Irish Nationalist activists (see post ‘A Network Stretching Back Decades…). At the same time, Dafydd was cultivating the friendship of corrupt English professional people in Liverpool, who later colluded with his criminality and protected him.

In 1956, Huw T. Edwards bought the Welsh-language periodical,’Y Faner’ in order to save it from liquidation. In 1958 he resigned from the Council for Wales and in 1959 he left the Labour Party to join Plaid. The people who provided lifelong protection for Dafydd and the gang were leading Plaid at that time. Huw T. Edwards returned to the Labour fold in 1965. He was the first President of the Welsh Language Society, which evolved from Saunders Lewis’s 1962 radio broadcast, ‘Tynged yr Iaith’. It was Dafydd who recorded that speech. See post ‘Tan yn Llyn’.

Huw T. Edwards married Margaret Owen, a Welsh-speaking woman from Rachub. They had known each other since Edwards was a boy, as she was his sister’s best friend. Rachub was the village in which I lived for many years, while the paedophile gang tried to set fire to my house repeatedly.

 

Ann Clwyd first stood for election to the Commons, unsuccessfully, in Denbigh in 1970. From 1979-84, Ann was MEP for Mid and West Wales. In May 1984, Ann was elected as the MP for Cynon Valley in south Wales, a seat she still holds. Ann was Shadow Minister of Education and Wimmin’s Rights, 1987-88, under the Windbag. The Shadow Minister for Wimmin’s Rights uttered not a word about what was happening at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh at the time and neither did the Windbag. The Windbag knew Tony Francis from their time at Cardiff University. Tony Francis was one of those who was unlawfully imprisoning wimmin in the North Wales Hospital.

 

Ann Clwyd was one of the female Labour politicians of her generation who were considered to be fruity, on the left and Wimmin with Radical Consciences. Others leading the field included the Baroness Windbag, another school teacher from north Wales who knew all about Dafydd and the trafficking gang and the hell hole which was the North Wales Hospital Denbigh but who said nothing.

Ann Clwyd was Shadow Secretary of State for Wales under John Smith, 1992-93 and Vice-Chair of the PLP, 2002-05. She was elected Chair of the PLP in May 2005, but was defeated in Dec 2006 by Tony Lloyd when she sought re-election. One reason for this was Clwyd’s chummy relationship with Miranda. Ann Clwyd served as Miranda’s Special Envoy on Human Rights in Iraq in the run up to the Iraq War.

Clwyd was a member of the Royal Commission on the NHS, 1976-79, the rigged Commission which Barbara Castle and Dr Death appointed Sir Alec Merrison to Chair. See previous posts. One reason given for this decision was that Merrison ‘was supportive of the NHS’. That cannot have been the real reason, because not only did that Royal Commission not lead a halt in NHS Top Doctors practising privately and using NHS facilities and staff for their private patients as Castle pretended that it would, but it paved the way for Thatch’s NHS ‘reforms’. Castle, Dr Death and that Commission knew that there was no way that Labour were going to win another General Election, so that Royal Commission knew that it was making things easy for Thatch. Sir Alec Merrison was not a Top Doctor himself. He was a nuclear physicist who knew what had been concealed at Windscale in 1957. Dafydd had worked at Windscale before going to Liverpool to study medicine and he too knew what had been concealed at Windscale and made very good use of his knowledge of the slurry pit which engulfed those in the highest echelons of Gov’t. See post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’.

Ann Clwyd became a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards, an organisation containing many paedophiles’ friends, in 1991, just as the North Wales Police launched their investigation into the abuse of children in care in north Wales/Cheshire. She is an Honorary Fellow of Bangor University and was awarded an honorary degree by NEWI. NEWI became Glyndwr University and throbs with paedophiles’ friends (see post ‘A Vampire At Glyndwr University!). NEWI was previously Cartfrefle College and in that incarnation it handed out social work certificates and other qualifications  to members of Dafydd’s gang for many years. Staff at Cartfrefle College were known to be identifying potential whistleblowers and contacting Lucille Hughes and Nefyn Dodd to raise the alarm when they had identified them. This is true of many institutions which are ‘training professionals’ but Cartrefle were more blatant and unprofessional about it than most. Standards at Cartrefle College were laughable. When Cartrefle evolved into NEWI and then Glyndwr University, the paedophiles’ friends simply stayed on board, some of them climbing higher within the institution and even joining the governing body (see previous posts). Ann Clwyd also holds an honorary doctorate of laws from Trinity College, Carmarthen, which employed and trained many a paedophiles’ friend and in the case of John Owen, the drama teacher and writer employed by Mid-Glamorgan County Council as well as S4C, a paedophile as well (see post ‘Yet More Inglorious Bastards’). John Owen was found dead days before his trial in 2001 for sexual assaults on his pupils. It was revealed after Owen’s death that his school, Ysgol Gyfun Rhydfelen, Mid-Glamorgan County Council and the WJEC exam board concealed complaints about him abusing pupils. Owen’s colleagues and friends, including those employed in education, media and the arts, later admitted that they knew that he was abusing young people.

Ann was a Member of the Arts Council, 1975–79 and the Vice Chair of the Welsh Arts Council 1975–97. Owen Smith’s dad Dai Smith was appointed Chair of the Welsh Arts Council in 2007, but Dai had already been involved with the organisation for many years.

Ann Clwyd was the MP who supported the Female Genital Mutilation Bill, to prohibit parents from sending, or taking, their daughters abroad for operations such as female circumcision. FGM was outlawed in the UK in 1985. At the time, it was admitted that most FGM in the UK was carried out in Harley Street and that was why it was outlawed. The Top Doctors continued to perform FGM and when I worked at St George’s Hospital in 1989, I was told by one gynaecologist that his friend in Harley Street was performing FGM. I reminded him that it was illegal and I was told by him and a medical researcher that it was better that it was done in Harley Street than by ‘an old woman in an African village with a razor blade which has been sterilised by dipping it in cow shit’. Whether the Old Ratbags in African villages who spend their days slicing through children’s genitalia with razor blades do dip their razor blades in cow shit beforehand I have no idea, but my point that those in Harley Street charging a great deal of money for performing FGM were breaking the law was ignored.

No-one now talks about Top Doctors performing FGM although they are still doing this. These days it’s all a matter of Prosecuting Somalis Because We Know What They Do. With their habits of scurrying about fully veiled and not having much money. There has been only one prosecution brought in the UK re FGM, not so long ago. It was of a Top Doctor at the Whittington Hospital in London. The jury cleared him because they did not understand what he had done. The Top Doc told them that he had performed a repair after childbirth. Which is exactly what some of the Top Docs at St George’s did when infibulated women gave birth when I worked there, 1989-91. The ‘repair’ means that they reverse the surgery that has had to be performed in order to allow the woman to give birth. They did not do this because they, the Top Docs, wanted to do it. They did this because the women asked them to do it. Adult women, with full capacity, asked them to. Those women do not want to be told by Milli Tant and her friends what to do with their own bodies. Neither did Milli Tant et al ever bother to discuss the matter with the women concerned to gain one ounce of understanding about what was happening and why.

So Another Law was passed, by Ann Clwyd et al. A law which has resulted in the stigmatisation and criminalisation of certain groups, particularly low income Somalis, who have been ignored when they have tried to explain that the practice has almost died out and that er no, most of us don’t do this anymore. Because there has been so few Prosecutions, there have been suggestions that the examinations of the genitalia of female children from certain ethnic groups should be Compulsory because they are At Risk of FGM.

Anyone for preventing child sexual abuse?

Another problem. Many Angels and midwives have admitted that they cannot tell if a young girl has undergone FGM or not. This had led to false accusations against innocent families.

So legislating against FGM has worked really well hasn’t it. Go to Harley Street Ann and take a look at who is going into the consulting rooms of the gynaecologists there. Their patients include very rich women, sometimes Royal women, from regions such as the Middle East. Some of them are girls/very young women. Now what do you think they are going in there for? To receive a prescription for the contraceptive pill to empower them to explore their sexual needs? No, that’s what the girls in care in north Wales got from the Top Docs of Gwynedd and Clwyd, to enable them to be shagged by anyone without the embarrassment of girls in care constantly becoming pregnant, which was quite a problem.

In 1963, Ann married Owen Dryhurst Roberts, a TV executive, who pioneered Welsh language TV. Owen grew up in Newborough on Anglesey, where hid dad was Head of the village school. Owen attended Llangefni Grammar School and from there went on to Jesus College, Oxford, where he was a leading light in the Dafydd ap Gwilym Society, which was popular among people who later became Senior Paedophiles’ Friends. After graduation, Owen joined Television Wales and the West (TWW) after being recruited by Lord Wyn Roberts, Thatcher’s mate, who spent his whole career in the media and then in the Tory Party protecting Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’). Wyn Roberts was one of the first paedophiles’ friends who learnt what was happening to me at the hands of Dafydd et al and who colluded with them. For years Wyn Roberts worked as a Minister in the utterly corrupt Welsh Office, while those within lied, perjured, fabricated documents and destroyed evidence relating to the very serious criminality in north Wales as well of course as the related gangs in other parts of Wales. Much of this was planned and co-ordinated by Andrew Park, the corrupt solicitor who worked for the Welsh Office (see previous posts) when Wyn Roberts was a Minister.

By 1970, Owen Roberts was Head of News at HTV Wales; in 1972, he became Head of News and Current Affairs at BBC Wales and then Assistant Head of Programmes. Owen Roberts subsequently occupied senior roles at S4C.

Throughout Owen Roberts’ time in news broadcasting, there were complaints that he concentrated on trivial news items.

Owen’s home village of Newborough is heavily stigmatised by those who are not plebs. There are a lot of people on low incomes there, these days a lot of drugs are flying around and I have heard school teachers who teach those kids making jokes about the ‘inbred’ kids of Newborough. Owen’s dad will probably have been one of those who quipped about the inbreds whom he taught.

In a previous post, I mentioned that when I lived at Malltraeth in 1999 – the next village along from Newborough – I was assaulted by chavs and the police refused to investigate. The assault happened in Newborough. Further along from Newborough village, there is a big area of spectacular sand dunes, Newborough Warren. Newborough Warren is a popular walking and picnicking area for people rather more affluent than the residents of Newborough and the car park and picnic area is plastered in notices warning motorists to lock their cars because thieves operate in that area. I know who those thieves were/are. They are Dafydd’s ‘substance abuse’ patients. When I told one Angel who worked with the substance abuse team based at Llangefni – Dafydd lives at Talwrn, about two/three miles away – that I liked going to Newborough dunes now that I had acquired a car, he cheerily said ‘oh do be very careful, our addicts are always down there breaking into the cars’. He was particularly concerned because on of ‘their addicts’ had carried out a very serious assault on a walker at Newborough Warren.

In north Wales, the mental health ‘service’ was one which committed perjury to imprison patients who had made serious complaint, yet protected and colluded with addicts who were involved with serious crime. As long as the addicts were ‘our patients’. I was told constantly by Angels that there had been many complaints about Dafydd, but he ‘really looked after his addicts’. Indeed he did, he flogged them drugs, wrote them favourable court reports if they did ever get arrested and if necessary, encouraged them to assault other Empowered Service Users who had complained about him.

Now Jeff Crowther, Sian Williamson and John Sims, who knew that Dafydd was doing this, perhaps you’d like to provide the names and details of the various addicts, sex offenders and other nasties who targeted me when I failed to succumb to the threats of the Top Doctors regarding the necessity of me withdrawing my complaints and keeping quiet. By the way, do any of you know who really set fire to the house in Gray Street, Carneddi in the mid-1980s, for which a hippy with a penchant for cannabis and shrooms was arrested, imprisoned and then ruined by Dafydd and the gang, after he told a few too many people that he knew that the kids in Ty Newydd children’s home were being abused by social workers?

 

Owen Roberts, like Ann Clwyd, kept completely silent about Dafydd, Denbigh and the gang, until in 1992 and then again, after the Jillings Report in 1996, when Ann Clwyd did try and ask questions and elicit a discussion in the Commons about the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal but was silenced by the Speaker Betty Boothroyd (see post ‘The Aftermath Of The Jillings Report – In Parliament ‘). In previous posts, I have blogged my appreciation for Ann having tried to elicit the debate. I was rash enough to describe Ann’s record on the matter of the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal as ‘impeccable’. I do apologise for that, I was deceived. Ann did try to have the matter discussed in the House, but she waited a very, very long time before mentioning a word about Dafydd and the gang, although she knew all about them decades ago, as did her husband. She subsequently knew about Mary Wynch, about Alison Taylor and me. She said nothing.

They were murdering witnesses Ann and you remained silent until Feb 1992, when you did try to raise the matter in the Commons, but were blocked by the Speaker Bernard Weatherill. See post ‘The Aftermath Of The Jillings Report – In Parliament’.

After the Jillings Report, every Right Thinking MP expressed their Horror and there was a great deal of We Didn’t Know. In March 1996, there was a flurry of Early Day Motion’s sponsored by MPs who most definitely already knew what had been happening in north Wales, namely Martyn Jones, the Labour MP for Clwyd South and a man called Rhodri Morgan. I recommend readers to return to my post ‘The Aftermath of The Jillings Report – In Parliament’ and read the wording of Rhodri’s EDMs. Oh it’ll bring tears to your eyes, Rhodri was appalled to have learned of the abuse of children in north Wales. He and Julie probably had to cancel a few drinking sessions with the Top Doctors in the wake of that and famille Windbag will have pretended that they’d never met Tony Francis.

Take a look at those who signed the EDMs. The signatures are a roll call of the paedophiles’ friends…

Since that flurry of activity in the House in 1996, Ann Clwyd has been vocal with regard to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. She made public that she had been told by some men who were former kids in care in north Wales that the most terrible abuse had gone on, including bestiality. However Ann only seemed to discuss what happened to the boys in the children’s homes in north Wales. That was indeed worth discussing, because Dafydd’s gang specialised in abusing boys and forcing them into sex work as rent boys, it was their big money spinner.

However, Dafydd and the trafficking ring also targeted girls and young women and it was they who were unlawfully banged up in Denbigh if they refused the wonderful offers of Dafydd and the gang, as I did. Girls – including those being raped or sexually exploited while they were ‘in care’ or at the hands of the likes of Dafydd – and women were also banged up in Denbigh if they had a pregnancy which was inconvenient to somebody else or if somebody other than the mother of the baby wanted that baby and the mother wanted to keep the baby. Previous posts have described how babies of women who were banged up in Denbigh disappeared in great numbers. Some were abducted, but I am sure that some were killed. Furthermore, throughout the 1980s, as I have previously explained, the cartel of Top Doctors across north Wales co-ordinated so as to make it impossible for women to get abortions on the NHS. However, referrals to a private clinic in Chester were available to any women who asked, as long as they had the dosh to pay for one. Women who did not stump up the dosh for the Chester clinic  were told that if they wanted an abortion on the NHS, they would have to go to Denbigh, where they would be ‘assessed’ by dear old Dafydd. No-one told them that they still wouldn’t be given an abortion, but I’m sure that Dafydd had a great time ‘assessing’ them. There was also an illegal abortionist at work in north Wales who was providing the abortions for the women who didn’t have the dosh for Chester and who knew about the ‘being assessed by Dafydd’ con and were certainly not going to say yes to that. Amazingly enough, I never found out who this was, I suspect because of the trail of crap emanating from it which had to be concealed – the very serious injuries or even dead women – will have involved so much more wrongdoing on the part of the Usual Suspects that there was an even bigger wall of silence around that. The Angels and midwives of north Wales know though. See post ‘Tan yn Llyn’.

Ann and the Sisters mentioned not a word about this to anyone when they should have been yelling about it from the rooftops.

One of the Wimmin of Wales who almost certainly knew who the abortionist(s) in north Wales were was Val Feld. Val Feld was born in Bangor and her dad was a dentist. The Top Docs and dentists were good mates in north Wales, Val’s dad will have been a pal of Dafydd, Gwynne et al. Val wasn’t in any danger from Dafydd, she was packed off to boarding school at Malvern. Val worked as a journalist in London and in then in housing advice in Lancashire. She became a local Labour councillor in Chorley, Lancashire, and worked as a social worker. In 1981, Val returned to Wales, founding and becoming the first Director of Shelter Cymru. In her spare time she studied for an MA at Cardiff University and in 1989 was appointed head of the Equal Opportunities Commission for Wales. She held the post for ten years, until her election as AM for Swansea East in 1999. The colluding old cow snuffed it in 2001, just after the publication of the Waterhouse Report. Her sad early death – although not as sad and as premature as the deaths of Dafydd’s victims who were found dead in Risley Remand Centre when they were still in their teens – was mourned by Rhodri as well as the Wimmin. Rhodri stated that: ‘I believe I speak for the whole of Wales when I say that the death of Val Feld is a grievous blow for us all.’

No Rhodri, you did not speak for the whole of Wales, you spoke for the privileged troughers such as yourself who built careers on the bodies of those in north Wales who were found dead, about whom you and the Wimmin didn’t give a stuff.

Jane Hutt was so traumatised at the possibility that Val Feld might disappear from the history books and her enormous achievements would go unrecognised that last year Jane demanded that a plaque be erected on the wall of the Senedd, to commemorate Val:

Someone else who knew who the abortionist in north Wales was and almost certainly knows what happened to the babies born in Denbigh is Ella Fisk, a former senior Angel at the Hergest Unit. Before she trained as a psych Angel, Ella was a midwife and at one point Ella worked in midwifery in Chester. Wimmin who had money – like Val and her mates – who lived in north Wales just had to wave the dosh and they’d be referred to a private clinic in Chester if they wanted an abortion. I presume that there was a business arrangement between the traffickers of north Wales and their branch in Chester and I bet that Ella and every other midwife in Chester knew the details of that arrangement. The power base of Dafydd’s gang was located in Chester, the home of Sir Peter Morrison, the home of all those bent lawyers and judges and just down the road was the Duke of Westminster…

I don’t think that Ella would have ever abused patients herself – she never did at the Hergest Unit, we liked Ella, but she was ruthlessly used by the gang of whom I imagine she was so afraid that she took orders from them. Ella knew what Dafydd et al were doing because we told her.

 

Having been allowed to do whatever they wanted to the dispossessed throughout their entire careers, in the end, the Top Doctors and Angels came for Ann Clwyd and her husband.

Owen Roberts died in utterly degrading circumstances in UHC in 2012. Ann was deeply distressed, she rightly kicked up one hell of a stink and was roundly denounced for Talking Down The NHS. It is standard practice, if one Talks Down The NHS, to be subjected to a vicious personal character assassination from multiple angles.

In 2013, after the Stafford Inquiry Report, Ann was appointed by Cameron to advise on complaint handling in the NHS. I wrote to Ann about the dreadful state of the NHS and she wrote me a nice e mail back. I was grateful Ann, but they had tried to kill Brown and me years ago and just two years after you were elected and were doing your best Milli Tant bit, they killed my closest female friend from Bangor. They also made damn sure that the newborn baby of another close friend of mine who was a witness didn’t survive.

The old lefties used to be keen on quoting the following classic:

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out –
     Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out –
     Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out –
     Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.

 

The old lefties sent each other cards with this printed upon them, they quoted it in political speeches and used it in their publications. While they ignored everything that was happening to us in north Wales, even when people like Mary, Alison and me, who were articulate, well-educated and had witnessed events at first hand, wrote and wrote and wrote and produced heaps of evidence and witness accounts.

By the time that they came for Owen Roberts there was no-one left to speak for him. Ann did and was trashed.

So Cameron, to show his Commitment, appointed Ann to act as his NHS complaints adviser. The Cameron who’s Gov’t repeatedly attacked the ‘Welsh NHS’, the Cameron who popped over to Wales and told the world that he ‘didn’t like what I saw’. The Cameron who’s senior colleagues and political mentors were every bit as responsible for the carnage in north Wales as were the Windbag, Ann Clwyd etc. They all knew what was happening in north Wales and in the areas where the linked gangs were operating and they stood back and let it happen. When Mary, Alison and I were making a racket, Thatcher was in Gov’t. In north Wales/Cheshire, it was Thatcher’s personal friend and Minister, Sir Peter Morrison, who was the Big Cheese who was deemed to be worthy of such protection that the gang murdered witnesses. Then there was Jimmy Savile, another friend of Thatch’s, who was involved with Dafydd’s gang.

Morrison and Savile were protected because of their Royal connections/friendships, as described in previous posts. When Cameron decided that he fancied being leader of the Tories, there was that phone call from an unidentified person in Buck House, informing the appropriate senior Tony that they were about to meet ‘a most remarkable young man’.

Once Cameron and Sam – famed for that tattoo of a dolphin on her ankle which resulted from a particularly wild moment when she was at Art School at Bristol Poly and her stunning abilities at designing expensive notepaper – were safely in the bunker at No 10, Debbo the Duchess of Devonshire was telling the journos from the broadsheets who conducted ingratiating interviews with her that Sam and Cam were doing ‘an awfully good job don’t you think?’

Debbo was of the finest bloodstock, being one of the Mitford sisters. Like Sam of the empty head and dolphin tattoo, Debbo had loads of aristocratic relatives (see previous posts). One of her daughters married the son of the man who owned Mustique when Princess Margaret and Roddy Llewellyn cavorted and snorted there at the taxpayers expense in the late 1970s and another daughter married Sir Peter Morrison’s nephew.

 

I do not know why Ann Clwyd agreed to act as Cameron’s adviser. Although Cameron paid lip-service to problems in the NHS in England, he constructed the whole situation as being a problem which largely affected Wales and it’s left-leaning NHS, which had so foolishly not embraced PFI and private medicine to the extent that it should. Not a mention that Ken Clarke, as a Tory Health Minister and then Health Secretary, had, when Cameron was young and getting pissed with Michael Heseltine’s daughter and other Champagne Charlies (see post ‘Tan yn Llyn’), done a sordid deal with Carlo’s mate the Duke of Westminster, to conceal the patient harm and trafficking ring being facilitated by St George’s Hospital. This not only left the agents of serious organised crime running a leading London teaching hospital, but also resulted in the Duke of Westminster (then the richest man in Britain) being allowed to buy the old St George’s building at Hyde Park Corner, a piece of prime Knightsbridge real estate worth many millions, for £6000. It is now the grandest, most expensive crash pad in London – the Lanesborough Hotel. See previous posts.

The roots of the problems in the NHS in Wales lay not with a bunch of lefties – although their weakness and utter lack of integrity certainly did not help – but with Thatcher’s Gov’t, who knew what Morrison, Savile and their associates, including their associates in Royal places, were doing; instead of stopping it, they used the security services and full forces of the British state to silence and even try and kill those of us who would not keep quiet.

It was a political decision Dave. Because the right of Peter Morrison – a member of White’s club when your old dad was responsible for the membership of that establishment – to have sex with young boys who did not want to have sex with him, was considered a higher priority than our lives.

Furthermore, although the Mid-Staffs Scandal may have blown up on the watch of the New Labour Gov’t and while Alan Johnson and Andy Burnham did themselves no favours at all by refusing over 80 requests to hold a Public Inquiry as the death rates soared, I know when things began to go wrong at Mid-Staffs, because it was recorded in Hansard. It was under Thatcher. By the time that John Major was PM, there were questions in the House concerning the by then very worrying state of the NHS in Staffordshire and Major flatly refused to investigate. Why were there such problems in the NHS in Staffordshire? Er – it was because there was a big trafficking gang operating in the region, which was being concealed by the NHS, the Social Services, Keele University and the West Midland Serious Crime Squad. The child abuse prevailing in Staffordshire did become public in the 1980s and resulted in the Staffordshire Pindown Inquiry. The subsequent Report admitted that there was a problem, but concealed the extent of it and the authors certainly never fessed up that, as in north Wales, the infrastructure of the whole region, including the NHS, had colluded with it.

The Inquiry into Pindown was Commissioned by Thatch’s Gov’t. The Co-Chairs of the whitewash were Allan Levy QC, a corrupt lawyer who had concealed child abuse (see previous posts) and Barbara Kahan. Barbara Kahan had worked for many years in a senior role in Oxfordshire Children’s Services. Babs and her husband, child psychiatrist Dr Vladimir Kahan, concealed organised abuse in the Oxford area and then when Babs was appointed as a Gov’t adviser re Children’s Social Work, she concealed organised trafficking across the whole of the UK. The person who first appointed Babs as a Gov’t adviser – back in the days of Heath’s Gov’t – was Sir Keith Joseph, the man whom Thatch considered her political mentor, the man said to have ‘invented’ Thatcherism and who was a key member of her Gov’t. Babs dispensed wisdom to Gov’ts throughout the 1970s and 80s, working with some notorious paedophiles while doing so. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’.

Not only did Call Me Dave’s dad know Peter Morrison, but Call Me Dave’s mum probably knew Barbara Kahan as well, because Dave’s mum served as a magistrate in Oxford, the site of the organised abuse which was concealed by Babs for years. The Kahans were based in Oxford. I have never spoken to anyone who knows Mrs Cameron, but I was friendly with the sister of a clinical psychologist based in Oxford, who told me some five years ago that abuse was being concealed by all agencies there. Just before that, I met a young man who’s family lived in Oxfordshire and who’s sister was involved with a charity for young people and she knew about the organised abuse as well. Furthermore, her charity had invited the local MP, a man called David Cameron, to an event held by her charity. She was gobsmacked to find that after the event, Dave had used the work of the charity as an example of the Gov’ts investment in Social Services. The charity had not received one penny from the Social Services or Gov’t. The young man who told me this said that he wanted to see a media article expose it all, under the headline ‘Cameron – The Liar’.

The media wouldn’t publish Cameron’s lies about organised trafficking and the NHS, they were never going to publish that.

Have this one on me! My informant will know who he is if he is reading this blog…

 

Who Chaired the Inquiry into the Mid-Staffs NHS Scandal? One Sir Robert Francis QC. Sir Robert was the MDU barrister who acted for the Drs Francis in 1991 when they attempted to have me imprisoned on the basis of their perjury. The MDU, the MDU solicitors Hempsons and specifically the Hempsons solicitor Ann Ball and Sir Robert Francis all knew that the Drs Francis had perjured themselves. I was not imprisoned, but there was no investigation into the perjury. See post ‘The Sordid Role Of Sir Robert Francis QC.’

P.S. Dave and Sam: Lest you believe that I am some sort of Deirdre Spart of the Neasdon South London Greenham Poly for Wimmin, who’s ‘alternative voice’ columns for ‘Private Eye’ were so loved back in the 1980s, I am not. I do not have a problem with you being posh, enjoying yourselves or even Sam being a bit dim and designing expensive notepaper. What I do have a very big problem with is your arrogance and you rigging the machinery of Gov’t so that it served you and your mates and shafted everyone else. Furthermore, when you were given the opportunity to shed light on the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal years after so many got away with so much and died in luxury while the bodies of their victims remain secreted in the grounds of the North Wales Hospital, you and Theresa once more ensured that there was yet another cover-up. They were my friends you bastard and their bodies have not yet been recovered.

 

Is it possible that Ann Clwyd accepted Cameron’s offer of an adviser’s role because of the rapidly escalating shit storm in north Wales, involving one Sally Baker and her friends, which by that time had resulted in armed police threatening a witness in his own home, days before he was told by Dyfed Edwards, the leader of Gwynedd County Council, that we weren’t going to ‘win this’, that the Chair and Chief Executive of the newly formed Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, Merfyn Jones and Mary Burrows, who were desperately trying to confront the paedophile gang still running amok, were going to ‘lose’ and be ‘taken out’ no less and when they did ‘lose’, our lives weren’t going to be worth living?

The Betsi Board had succeeded the North West Wales NHS Trust, which became such an embarrassment that even the Welsh Gov’t had to dissolve it. The Chairman of the NW Wales NHS Trust was Elfed Roberts, who had previously been a senior officer in the North Wales Police. Elfed had been obliged to leave the force after allegations of serious corruption. So Rhodri gave him a job as Chair of the NW Wales NHS Trust, which meant that Elfed had an automatic seat on the Council of Bangor University. The VC at the time was Merfyn Jones. While Merfyn was VC, his wife died after the paedophiles’ friends who ran and staffed The Walton Centre found that they could do nothing for her tch tch. I worked at Bangor University while Elfed was Chair of the NW Wales NHS Trust. During that time, I was threatened and abused by NHS/Social Services staff, I was repeatedly unlawfully arrested and I was unlawfully refused all NHS care. Every time that I attempted to access NHS treatment, I was greeted by Angels screaming at me to get out or they’d call the police and making false allegation that I’d abused and threatened them. CCTV which recorded Angels doing this was destroyed on the orders of Martin Jones, the Chief Executive of the NW Wales NHS Trust, after my lawyer requested it. See previous posts.

The harassment was so severe that I began carrying a voice recorder at all time – as did at least one other witness who was being threatened and refused NHS care unlawfully. The other person concealed his voice recorder, but I decided to inform NHS staff that I was recording them, lest that was then used as further evidence of my wicked ways – OOH she secretly recorded us.

On one occasion, I rang Ysbyty Gwynedd A& E seeking help. I was insulted and threatened by a Senior Angel, Stephen Gallagher and his sidekick, Angel Andrew Parry and told that I would not be treated if I arrived at the hospital. The phone was repeatedly slammed down on me as I rang again and again seeking advice. I rang a friend who rang the hospital herself to explain that she was worried about me. She too was insulted and abused. She explained that she had recently lost a daughter to suicide and could not believe that someone in distress was being unlawfully refused NHS care. Gallagher told her to stop ‘manipulating’ him. She revealed that she was a member of staff at Ysbyty Gwynedd who was appalled at what was going on and would blow the whistle on this. Stephen Gallagher, the Senior Angel, told her that she would be sacked if she did. She told Gallagher that she ‘didn’t give a shit’ if she was, she would be raising her concerns. Gallagher told her that she was now abusing him and he would report the matter. I was refused all NHS care that evening and told that if I arrived at Ysbyty Gwynedd I would be arrested.

This happened in 2008, on the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the NHS. The Welsh Gov’t celebrated that anniversary on the day that I and my friend received so much grief from the Angels of Ysbyty Gwynedd. The Welsh Gov’t had ignored all previous concerns of mine and the events of that day were never investigated either. I later learned that Gallagher had previously been subjected to disciplinary action after a Top Doctor complained about him and a note had been placed on his file stating that his integrity and competence could not be relied upon.

When my friend arrived at Ysbyty Gwynedd for work the following morning, she was greeted by a posse of senior managers, who accused her of ‘plotting’ with me to ‘get at’ Elfed and Martin. She was subjected to a full scale interrogation.

The evening before, Gallagher had told my friend that it had been recorded on my file that I was a danger to staff and was not to be treated but was to be arrested if I arrived at Ysbyty Gwynedd. So the following day, I went to the A&E at Ysbyty Gwynedd, with my voice recorder, told them that I was recording the conversation and asked for copies of the documentation which stated that I was dangerous and was to be refused treatment and arrested if I arrived at Ysbyty Gwynedd. I was told that no such documentation existed. I repeated what my friend had told me the previous evening. A Top Doctor emerged from an office, shrilling that no such documentation existed, I had never been refused treatment and never would be, everyone Wanted To Help. As she shrieked at me, I witnessed Elfed Roberts leaving the building at high speed before driving away in his penismobile. Before Elfed reached his penismobile, I left the A&E building and headed towards him with the voice recorder. The Top Doctor ran after me yelling that she was here to help, I had not been refused treatment, never would be and no documentation ordering that existed.

Just before all this went on, I was told by a senior colleague that Martin Jones had sent copies of confidential NHS records concerning me to the authorities at Bangor University. I don’t know if Martin sent them to Merfyn the VC or to Dr David Roberts the Registrar, I wasn’t told and I didn’t ask. I was told that the University were deeply embarrassed and were pretty horrified that Martin had felt able to do this. I was asked if I would be happy not to make a formal complaint but to let the University reply to Martin informing him that they could not be in receipt of such documentation. I was told that the excuse that Martin had used to send the documentation was to complain about me using my Bangor University e mail address to e mail an attachment to the Trust, which was a formal letter of complaint. The University asked me if I could set up a different e mail account to communicate with the Trust so that Martin would never have an excuse to do this again. I was happy to do that.

So as Elfed got into his penismobile and the Top Doctor stood in front of me shrieking that I’d never been refused NHS treatment, I switched off my recorder – for her sake actually – and told her that Martin had sent confidential information about me to the University authorities and was attempting to lean on the VC. I then left the grounds of Ysbyty Gwynedd.

Within two days, Martin was firing off furious letters to all and sundry, including to me and to the senior managers of Bangor University. Martin wrote a fuming account regarding me, my voice recorder and carefully explained that before leaving the hospital, I had turned the voice recorder off and told the Top Doc that Martin had been trying to lean on the VC.

My lawyers eventually obtained copies of the documentation that we were told by the Top Doc didn’t exist. It stated that I was a danger to NHS staff and if I turned up at Ysbyty Gwynedd, I was indeed to be arrested.

I recognised the Top Doc who had lied her arse off when she told me that no such documentation existed. She was the A&E consultant, Dr Vanessa Poeppinghaus. I had first met her many years before in Dec 1991. I had left St George’s earlier that year, was back living in Rachub and Tony and Sadie Francis’s repeated attempts to imprison me on the basis of their perjury had failed. I did not have access to my records in those days, so I had no idea how hard the Francis’s had been working to try and bring this about, how much perjury had been committed and how many people had colluded, in north Wales, London and elsewhere. I had been told by GPs, my then solicitor Alwyn Jones and an ‘independent second opinion’, Dr David Mawson, that Tony and Sadie had genuinely been frightened of me, that it had all been a terrible misunderstanding, that everyone wanted peace to break out and that Gwynedd health Authority wanted to offer me care for what was by then a serious bout of depression. I had no idea that Alwyn was on board with Dafydd’s gang – I only discovered that in the last couple of weeks – and I didn’t know that David Mawson was either (see post ‘Doctors Who Disappeared From The Medical Register’). I wrote to the Francis’s and told them that I really was very sorry that they had ever believed that I was any sort of danger to them. I went to see them and they gave every impression of accepting my apology, making friends with me and told me that they would like to offer me a ‘service’ and we could just put everything else behind us.

Records in my possession show that it was an elaborate trap, set up for Gwynedd Health Authority to be seen to be ‘caring’ for me. There is a letter among my records signed by Alun Davies, the NHS manager, which was CCd to a number of other GHA senior staff, telling them that it was very useful that I’d agreed to see Tony Francis, because if the Health Authority were seen to be taking a ‘caring’ attitude (Davies put the word in inverted commas), towards me, they would have more chance of securing a conviction ‘the next time that we prosecute her’. There were indeed a number of prosecutions over the following years, accompanied by explanations of how hard they had all tried and how caring the Top Docs had been towards me, but really a secure mental hospital was now the only option…

Not long after the ‘peacemaking’, I was admitted to the old psychiatric ward, Seiriol Ward, in Ysbyty Gwynedd – the building of the Hergest Unit had not yet been completed – for serious depression, under the care of Tony Francis. The North Wales Police investigation into the abuse of kids in care had begun but I was barely aware of that. The paedophile gang had also geared up to do battle at UCNW, the battle in which the gang was ably assisted by ‘The Guardian’and involved fallacious allegations of anti-Welsh racism against the senior sociologist Graham Day and in which the lady who later married Merfyn was used as a football. See post ‘Badlands’. Merfyn’s wife died years later when I was working in the School of Social Sciences as a sociologist after Dafydd’s mates at The Walton Centre found that there was just no treatment for her…

I had been admitted to Seiriol Ward some time before Christmas 1991 and Brown was coming up to spend Christmas at my house, so it was arranged with Tony Francis that I’d spend Christmas at home with Brown. Brown arrived, collected me and we went back to Rachub. The next morning, I woke to find Brown groaning on the floor, asking me to call an ambulance because he was in agony, couldn’t move and thought that an organ must have ruptured. I went next door to the neighbours to borrow their phone, they came over to help and we waited for the ambulance. It didn’t hurry itself, although my neighbours and I had explained that whatever was wrong with Brown, it was nasty. After a long while the ambulance arrived. It wasn’t the sort of full blown ambulance equipped for people who needed lifting and stretchering, it was a sort of sub-ambulance for ferrying elderly people to hospital appointments. The ambulance man – there was only one of them – came in and told Brown that he could get into the ambulance. Brown explained that he was in so much pain that he couldn’t move and asked if he had a stretcher. No. Neither was the ambulance man going to ring for back up. Brown had to get up off his bed (or actually the floor) and walk outside into the ambulance. After a saga which involved my neighbours and I – not the ambulance man, he stood by watching – we got Brown into the ambulance. We arrived at Ysbyty Gwynedd. No real help to move Brown, although this time a wheelchair appeared. As soon as we got into A&E an Angel prioritised Brown, because he was in a worse state that anyone else. Then the Top Doc arrived. It was Vanessa Poeppinghaus. I didn’t know her, but I knew someone who did, so I knew of her. She prodded Brown about a bit and after she finished I said ‘so what’s wrong with him then?’ Vanessa gave me a big grin and said ‘I have no idea.’ So I asked if they were going to open him up. She said ‘ooh no that’s the last thing that we’ll do’ and buggered off. We stated in A&E for the next three hours. After two hours Brown was still in agony so Brown, for the one and only time in his life, asked for opiate painkillers.Vanessa told Brown that he couldn’t have any pain relief until another Top Doc had seen him. So we carried on waiting. After we had waited three hours, another Top Doc arrived. He asked Brown what the pain felt like, Brown said exactly what he had said to Vanessa and the Top Doc said immediately ‘kidney stone, give him lots of pethidine and admit him to the ward.’ The Top Doc disappeared.

Vanessa reappeared. Brown did not get lots of pethidine. He didn’t get sufficient to even touch the pain and that was obvious. Vanessa stayed nearby shrieking at Angels not to give anymore pain relief. After a long wait Brown was given a very bumpy ride up to the kidney ward. Where he received no pain relief and no treatment. The next day – Christmas Day – Brown passed the kidney stone, 18th century style.

After Christmas, I discussed kidney stones with the Angels on Seiriol Ward. One Angel, John Thomas, told me that kidney stones are known to be agony, that his wife had one and the Angels ensured that she had plenty of opiates. Medical textbooks that we consulted after Brown had the Vanessa Poeppinghaus Experience all said the same thing – very painful,  generous amounts of pethidine, as the patient needs.

The kidney service at Ysbyty Gwynedd responsible for Brown having, er, no treatment was the flagship service which had been not so long ago established by paedophiles’ friend Sir William Asscher, who was by then the Dean of St George’s. Just one year before Brown was clobbered with that kidney stone, Asscher had been very busy indeed, along with his staff,  forcing me out of my job and then colluding with Dafydd, the Drs Francis and Lucille Hughes in the series of attempts to have me imprisoned on the basis of their extensive perjury. See previous posts.

I have been told that Vanessa Poeppinghaus had been informed of who her patient was; the man who had raised his concerns over the past few years at events in north Wales and who had heard the phone calls during which Dafydd had tried to threaten and then bribe me into dropping my complaints and who had written to Gwynedd Health Authority about that as well.

This was not a one off. Years later I knew another Hergest Unit patient who had as much trouble with the gang as I did and was also eventually unlawfully refused all NHS treatment. He too had a kidney stone – when he was actually an in-patient at Hergest. His requests for medical help were met with Angels telling him to go and lie on his bed and be quiet. He too eventually piddled out a kidney stone many hours later. No pain relief, not even a cursory examination of any type.

I know of many other examples of people who have spilt the pints of the paedophiles who have subsequently found themselves denied healthcare, even in life-threatening situations and have detailed a few such cases in previous posts.

I knew one man who lived near Bethesda who’s mum killed herself when he was in infancy; his dad didn’t do a very good job of looking after him and other people told me that as a child, in the 1970s, he lived rough and scavenged for food in bins. Gwynedd Social Services were nowhere to be seen. As an adult, this man developed a very serious alcohol problem and as is often the case, after a drinking session he would get incredibly depressed; all Top Doctors know that alcohol is a depressant. After he got married, this man’s wife got very worried about his drinking and his depression and after much badgering on her part he went to Bethesda surgery and asked for help with his ‘nerves’. He was given a prescription for valium and no follow up appointment. Some weeks later, he arrived at my house pissed and caused much trouble, but didn’t damage anyone or anything. The next day he arrived in tears and said that he was really very sorry, but his drinking and depression was completely out of hand. I rang Bethesda Police Station and told them that I was concerned about this man, who was out of hand when drunk but clearly was very distressed. They offered to come over and arrest the ‘fat bastard’ for me. I told them that the last thing that the fat bastard needed was arresting. They told me that there was nothing that they could do then and put the phone down on me.

At the time, Dafydd was the ‘drugs and alcohol specialist’ for north Wales and was regularly appearing on TV and in the press, proffering his expert opinion and being robustly promoted in this capacity.

 

Vanessa Poeppinghaus herself has been in receipt of much NHS care, very expensive care as well, indeed so much care that Vanessa was featured on the TV! Because Vanessa, a few years after Brown’s encounter with her, had a multiple organ transplant! Bugger me if Vanessa wasn’t one of the first people to have one, a Brave Young Life Saver Herself Who Cared and of course who just wanted to Get Back To Work And Help Patients after her pioneering op! My God, Vanessa’s multiple organ transplant did wonders for that scandal ridden trafficking gang in north Wales and their Ysbyty Gwynedd with some of the worst clinical outcomes in the UK.

The Medical Miracle that was Vanessa continued. Within a few short years, Vanessa’s Wedding was headline news! Brave Vanessa was still alive! Soon after the Wedding, Vanessa Opened Her Heart to the media once more and explained that she Wanted Babies! She bloody well got them as well. Vanessa the Medical Miracle was soon being touted as I think it was the first recipient of a multiple organ transplant to Have Babies.

Goodness knows how much of this was true, yes the sadistic bitch did stay alive and she did have children, but knowing that lot I would not be in the least surprised if there had been a few porkies and a bit of research fraud along the way, because my God did that trafficking gang need a bit of good PR on many occasions. I seem to remember that Vanessa’s Multiple Miracles occurred in conjunction with King’s College London.

Vanessa is renowned for her style and fashion! Vanessa, I was told, has ‘shoes to die for’. I thought that Vanessa’s shoes were rather dull, they were the sort of things that Theresa May used to wear at the Tory conferences which set the knees of the old boys in the hall trembling. Utterly boring but with a dangerous patch of leopard skin on the toe. However Vanessa’s shoes are very expensive, very much more expensive that the footwear of other folk in Bangor.  Owen Smith received a bollocking from Wimmin when he was attempting to become Leader of the Labour Party after he stated that ‘we ought to smash Theresa May back on her kitten heels.’ Which I thought was hilarious, I am sure that Oily wasn’t really encouraging violence towards wimmin. Oily, if you fancy taking a principled stand at any point for a refreshing change, there’s a grade A cow of a paedophiles’ friend working at Ysbyty Gwynedd sporting kitten heels…

We’re the paedophiles’ friends and you can’t get us. We get multiple organ transplants and expensive shoes, you don’t even get a fucking aspirin when you’re got a kidney stone. If you have a brain tumour you can bloody well die because we remember 1993…

Ah, your life in their hands! Or should you dare complain about a gang of paedophiles or their mates, it’ll be your death in their hands.

 

The lifestyles of the paedophiles’ friends were a source of considerable resentment in Gwynedd, the bastards were so loathed that one could hear them being discussed in public. I was in one of the more expensive shops in Caernarfon in pursuit of a special pair of boots one day – hardly Jimmy Choos but not the ones for £5 in the baskets outside the really cheap shops either – and I was bending over trying on the boots and I heard a voice saying ‘are you a fucking social worker?’. So I looked up and said ‘no, but if you hate them I’ll understand why’. And the lady said ‘ooh I am sorry, all I saw was your blonde hair and you’re trying on expensive boots and I thought you were that fucking social worker’. So we had a good chat and yes, she was yet another Empowered Service User who had been screwed over by those who Help.

There was a shop in Bangor which was actually known as ‘the social workers shop’, it was very, very pricey, so only the social workers and the S4C twats were regulars in there. I think its real name was Morgans or something, but because it was trying to be so posh it didn’t actually have its name on the door. I saw what looked like interesting clothes in the window so I went in and found out that not only had they put the only good clothes that they had in the window, but the clothes were all really badly made, although they were priced in the hundreds. I saw a pair of pink Doc Martens and I asked ‘have you got these in a size 7?’ and they looked at me like I’d murdered their grandmother, so I thought oh fuck off then and left.

Then I found out that one of my mates who worked at Bangor University had a friend who worked as a sales assistant in the shop and who told her  that dealing with the stream of rude, demanding social workers was bad enough, but even worse were the S4C twats. According to my friend, the S4C twats would occupy the changing rooms and when they were trying on clothes, they wouldn’t actually speak to the lower caste shop assistant, an arm would just emerge from the cubicle, which was the signal that More Clothes Were Required and my friend’s mate was expected to go off and select more gear in the taste and size of the S4C twat to keep the supply up, a sort of intravenous drip of over-priced clothes.

S4C twats: lest you haven’t noticed, you are not in Knightsbridge, you are in Bangor and your pretensions entertained many of us.

Imagine how I laughed when one day I was sitting on the steps of Top College in Bangor and Meri Huws walked past me trying to rub it in that of course she hadn’t actually noticed riff raff like me sitting on the steps and Meri was clad from head to toe in the very outfit which only the previous week had been on display in the social workers/S4C twats shop. Even better was when Meri sported what Brown called ‘her George Melly jacket’ ‘which looks like its been made out of pair of curtains’. The height of entertainment was reached when the fashionista which was Meri turned up in a photograph in ‘The Bangoriad’, obviously pissed, wearing a jumpsuit made of bacofoil stuff which was undone rather too low for the occasion, which was one involving the Bangor University gerontocracy, who were also in the photograph looking a little shocked. I told one of my mates that the latest copy of ‘The Bangoriad’ had the best photo of Meri imaginable, so I was sent back to grab a whole load of Bangoriads to distribute to the oppressed, but the pile of Bangoriads had gone. Probably because someone in the organs of Gov’t at Bangor heard that word had been sent out re that photo of Meri.

 

Vanessa Poeppinghaus and her Multiple Medical Firsts were not the only source of good PR that Dafydd and the gang received. I have mentioned in previous posts that Dafydd and his associates turned up in the most extraordinary media places, as a result of the gang’s many fingers in media pies. Dafydd took the biscuit when he rang up the James Whale Radio Show in the early hours, told James Whale that he was a psychopath and discussed the consequences of this with James Whale live on air (see previous post). I have just been having a cringe and old clips on You Tube of that most hideous of 1970s TV programmes from which Brown and I derived so much entertainment when we were in our teens, ‘Ask The Family’, presented by the horribly smug Robert Robinson and his comb over. Imagine my surprise when I found the Grand Final from one series which was going to determine ‘who was the cleverest family in the land’ no less, which featured a family from Llandudno, the Griffiths. Mrs Arlene Griffiths was a Teacher and Mr David Griffiths was an Office Manager. Arlene and David looked seriously grim, which was hardly surprising because Arlene will have known something about the abuse of kids in north Wales and no doubt David did as well, because being an Office Manager in Llandudno will have meant that he almost certainly worked for one of Local Authorities, which were facilitating the gang. Not a word about the massive trafficking ring in operation ever found its way into the media until the 1990s, but folk from north Wales employed in professions which facilitated that gang popped up everywhere.

Would you know anything about why this was Ann Clwyd?

 

When the gang got really desperate they would arrange an Event and, if possible, invite a VIP and always journos and cameras of course, such as the 2005 Awards Ceremony  which I discussed in my post ‘Tan yn Llyn’ in which Awards were given to staff of the mental health services who had done so much to conceal serious crime by a senior Angel who had concealed a great deal of crime herself, including a suspicious death on Seiriol Ward (see post ‘Inside Information About A Hergest Unit Death’).

The building of the Hergest Unit provided many opportunities for PR Events. I have discussed in previous posts how, as it became very obvious by about 10 years ago that the Hergest Unit was both very dangerous and irretrievable and as the death rate soared and then even the staff began killing themselves, the problems were blamed on the building. The building was crap and had always been crap and that was the problem. Exactly the same excuse was used for the dreadful state of affairs when the North Wales Hospital was in use. The Betsi Board even managed to blame Tawel Fan on the building. It is not the buildings that are screaming at suicidal patients to ‘go on and do it then’, assaulting them, having them arrested after lies have been told to the police or unlawfully denying them treatment. It is the staff and it is the same staff who have been doing that for many, many years.

Contrary to what is now being said about that crappy old Hergest Unit, when that Unit was opened, the staff were really proud of it and were offering people guided tours. It was certainly much better than what went before ie. Dafydd’s Denbigh Dungeon (although that did of course stay open for years after Hergest came into being, although people were told lies about that as well) and Seiriol and Dwynwen Wards in Ysbyty Gwynedd. However, the Top Doctors were scrapping with each other during the development phase of Hergest. None of them could agree on what the best plan would be.

Something Had To Be Done however, certainly after Mary Wynch began heading for the Master of the Rolls in the early 1980s. Ysbyty Gwynedd had of course been planned, built and then opened in 1984, with its two psychiatric wards, but whoops, there were deaths, patient harm and serious complaints. Everyone knew what the problem was, it was Those Wards In That Building. In March 1989 there was havoc in Gwynedd Health Authority, with questions in the House regarding the massive amounts of money which had inexplicably disappeared, the gross mismanagement and the arrival of a hit squad from the Welsh Office, who had presided over the fuckwittery for years themselves and lied to any patient who dared raise concerns. See post ‘A Visit To Gwynedd Archives’. By the time of that bunfight in the Commons, I and Brown had been raising our deepest concerns for five years only to be told by the Welsh Office and Gwynedd Health Authority that everything was absolutely fine, I was mad and Brown was a Git.

In March 1989 there were questions in the House about Gwynedd Health Authority. In May 1989 I was offered that job at St George’s which was used to end my career in medical research and nearly resulted in me serving a prison sentence.

It is interesting to note that in the Commons and in the documentation compiled by Gwynedd Health Authority at that time, there are frank admissions with regard to the appalling state of the mental health services, as well as the Obs and Gynae services in Gwynedd. So there would be Investment and New Buildings. Peter Walker was Secretary of State for Wales at the time and David Hunt was the Welsh Office Minister charged with dealing with Gwynedd Health Authority.

The Hergest Unit opened in 1992 and it was a Flagship Unit. The best in Europe no less, as Sir Ronnie Waterhouse was told by Rob Evans at the Waterhouse Inquiry five years later, Rob having served as Assistant Director of Gwynedd Social Services, with responsibilities for children’s homes and then for mental health (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing’).

After the Hergest Unit had been opened for a while, so it must have been sometime in 1993, there was a Grand Opening during which a carved stone celebrating the occasion was unveiled. The Grand Opening was attended by a VIP; it was someone from the Welsh Office, but I don’t know if it was a Minister or the Secretary of State. Why don’t I know? Because every patient who had ever complained about the gang was very carefully kept away from that Event and one of those was of course me. I was later told that the Event was Marvellous and the VIP was very impressed with the caring Angels and Top Doctors and their Patience with the Nutters. That opinion was reinforced by the actions of one patient who had been shagged by the staff at Denbigh, assaulted and generally neglected who did manage to get through the security for the Event and who, just as Mr Important was about to pull the cord that lifted the curtain to unveil the stone, leaned over, pulled the cord and unveiled the stone herself. It was explained that she was Mentally Ill, not that she had a serious condition which was being mismanaged and had been dumped in Denbigh years ago by her well-to-do and actually very famous family who never mentioned in any of their many media appearances that they had left her to rot in the hands of Dafydd. This patient was one of those who became destitute when the Day Centre was closed down during the Waterhouse Inquiry.

The Secretary of State for Wales at the time will have been either David Hunt or John Redwood and the Health Secretary would have been former psychiatric social worker Virginia Bottomley. See previous posts for Virginia’s vast network of friends and relations who are nearly all paedophiles’ friends.

Throughout the years of chaos, Andrew Park, the crooked Welsh Office solicitor, encouraged mental health staff to perjure themselves in an attempt to imprison witnesses to serious wrongdoing, fabricated documents and destroyed evidence. During the same period of time, the Welsh Office’s Social Services Inspection Unit failed to respond to complaints of serious abuse of children in care, even on the occasions when staff had been convicted and imprisoned and failed to even conduct inspections of children’s homes, even those homes where there had been complaints of serious abuse.

Dafydd’s gang did whatever they wanted and no-one ever responded to any concerns, not even to deaths or to the complaint that one boy at Bryn Alyn had been forced to have sex with adult men at gunpoint.

The Menai Day Centre finally closed its doors in the late 1990s as described in previous posts, but bits of the Hergest Unit began closing not long after the Unveiling Event with the VIP. The first bit to close was the Heidi Humphreys Mother and Baby Unit, another Flagship initiative which was opened with a media circus. That Unit was named after an Angel who had worked on Seiriol Ward who was killed in a crash on her way home to Pwllheli one day. Another death of a witness. The Heidi Humphreys Unit lasted just months and had hosted about six or seven patients before its doors were locked. Just on a temporary basis, because ‘there wasn’t enough staff’. No more staff were employed and the Heidi Humphreys Unit was never opened again. The pretence was kept up for a bit, in that the furniture stayed in there on the grounds that the Unit would soon be back in action. Then a a few unwanted bits and pieces were stored in there. Then it became The Place to dump anything that wasn’t wanted. Then it was converted into a junior doctors’ socialising room. See post ‘The Sad Story Of The Heidi Humphreys Unit’.

There were no journos and TV cameras present when the Heidi Humphreys Unit closed. Or when all the other bits of the Hergest Unit began closing not long after the Flagship Unit, the Best In Europe, had opened.

The Flagship Unit opened its doors during the North Wales Police investigation into the possible VIP paedophile ring being concealed in High Places which was feared to be operating in north Wales/Cheshire. The investigation ended in 1992, when the police declared that there was no evidence of any paedophile ring. The VIP from the Welsh Office which was concealing the paedophile ring that the North Wales Police hadn’t found any evidence of, although some of their officers were members of the gang, rocked up for the Unveiling at the Hergest Unit after the All Clear had been declared and to reassure the world that we were all happy in our madness.

I’m not sure that we were all happy in our madness, Dafydd and the traffickers did all that they could to destroy our lives, but as regular readers will know, Dafydd et al may have been dangerous criminals but they were so ludicrous that we did derive much entertainment from them. It was little wonder that VIPs were kept well away from Empowered Service Users, because one would hear Angels saying ‘well you’ve had your appointment with DA, how did it go?’ And they would be met with responses like ‘I thought he was a bit of a twat’ or ‘I’m not seeing him again, he’s a big wanker.’

 

I have described elsewhere how the patients got so sick of complaints being ignored that they took the piss by doing things like walking up to an Angel in Ysbyty Gwynedd while carrying a rubber plant and saying ‘It wasn’t me who murdered Mary Wynch’s mother and this rubber plant wasn’t the murder weapon, it was Dr Dafydd Alun Jones wot did it with an overdose of barbiturates’. The Angel said ‘Yes dear’ and walked off, leaving us pissing ourselves laughing, because Mary Wynch’s mother had died inexplicably in one of Dafydd’s homes, with the symptoms of barbiturate poisoning. There was no investigation because Dafydd had Mary unlawfully arrested and imprisoned.

One patient responded to TV adverts urging viewers to report crime to ‘Crimestoppers’ by ringing up ‘Crimestoppers’ and providing them with full details of some of Dafydd’s crimes. The murder of Mary Wynch’s mother of course but he also gave the name and details of one of Dafydd’s dealers/distributors, what he was selling, where he was selling it and who he was selling it to. ‘Crimestoppers’ told him that they were treating his calls as hoaxes and there would be no further action of any sort. One patient reported the activities of a sexually aggressive psych patient in the local community to ‘Crimestoppers’. Again full details were provided. The caller was told that this call would be ignored. See previous posts for details of the ‘Crimestoppers’ incidents.

As well as the ‘Crimestoppers’ adverts, there were also all the adverts in the media demanding that people blow the whistle on the suppliers of the duty free tobacco which was flooding into Britain at the time. Every Hergest patient I knew who smoked roll ups had a good supply of rolling tobacco. It was for sale absolutely everywhere. The patients – apart from me – smoked like chimneys and many of them were seriously short of money. Many north Wales patients were not even getting the benefits to which they were entitled because no-one had told them about this and then if they did find out the Arfon Community Mental Health Team would snap that they weren’t going to ‘help’ them. The applications for benefit had to be supported by evidence from the thugs in the Arfon CMHT, so people didn’t bother to apply for their benefits. Thus cheap tobacco was hugely popular. Supplying the duty free tobacco also provided a useful income for Empowered Service Users and others who were being deprived of their benefits by the gang.

Were any of us ever going to grass up people who were supplying the tobacco to our friends when we were arrested if we tried to report assaults on us by a people trafficking gang?

The main baccy dealer in Rachub was a pensioner who lived in one of the old people’s bungalows. I don’t know how he secured one of those, because he was from London, Gwynedd County Council claimed to have a policy of prioritising local people and everyone was on the list for years. It was hilarious, he was receiving shipments – big shipments as well – from his son in London through the Royal Mail. The word would go out to the Empowered Service Users that a shipment would be arriving the next day and the postie would arrive with several enormous parcels and the old boy would cheerily yell ‘oh its the shipment’, the postie would unload the shipment and over the next few hours there would be a steady stream of Empowered Service Users to the pensioner’s bungalow, who left with a load of baccy.

The parcels of baccy would then be taken into the Hergest where they would be divided into smaller parcels and flogged off to other Empowered Service Users in the Day Centre when the staff were far too busy in the Angels’ office to take any notice of what was going on in the main lounge.

The Rachub pensioner was the main supplier for a long while, but then a new dealer arrived on the scene. This man offered a very good service, because he brought the baccy into the Day Centre and flogged it off on the premises. How was he able to do this? Because he was an Empowered Service User himself. Not one who’s life was being wrecked by Dafydd et al, this man was a former member of an Outlaws Bike Gang who had been chopped in the head with an axe by a fellow biker, had incurred a serious injury which left him partially paralysed and ended up in the arms of Hergest by being a PTSD patient, so I presume that he was something to do with Dafydd. I was certain that he was something to do with Dafydd when it transpired that the Shop – as it was openly called – began flogging dope (‘do ewe mean mari-jew-ana?’) and then a variety of other recreational chemicals…

Was the purveyor of drugs ever arrested, banned from the Hergest, described as dangerous, served with High Court injunctions etc like me? Of course he wasn’t, because he was Of Dafydd. He received far more benefits than other patients because he wasn’t being shafted by the gang and had a very pleasant time during his visits to the Day Centre. God knows what the Angels and Top Docs thought were in all the very full bags which accompanied him to the Hergest Unit or why they never noticed that after he arrived the lounge would be inexplicably full, with patients going in and out with bags full of something, thanking him. The Hergest Unit then arranged for the dealer to undertake an Art degree at Coleg Menai for ‘rehabilitation’ purposes. He was not the only Empowered Service User who did this, there was a small group who did so, but they were all the people who hadn’t Upset People ie. complained about Dafydd and the gang. There was me and at least four other Empowered Service Users with postgrad qualifications who failed to receive responses from Hergest staff when we asked about returning to college or work. One man with a PhD in biochemistry gave up trying to get any sense out of the Hergest Unit and went to see the Disability Resettlement Officer in Bangor Job Centre and told him that he’d like to get back to work. The Disability Resettlement Officer told him that they didn’t have any jobs for anyone, let alone Hergest patients.

While this was happening, the north Wales newspapers boasted constantly of all the ‘help’ that Empowered Service Users were given, the many ‘work projects’ and all the ‘funding’ that was going into such schemes. The only one that we ever actually encountered was a community pottery in Bethesda run by a really nice man called Dave. No Angel or Top Doctor told us about it, one Empowered Service User discovered it and spread the world that we could do two days in the pottery and earn a small amount of extra money. The pottery filled up and was massively popular. Most people in the pottery were the Empowered Service Users who had been frozen out of everything by Dafydd’s gang. After we had all been going to the pottery for some two months, Dave told us that sadly the pottery was closing. His funding had been withdrawn. Well the pottery wasn’t run by Dafydd and the gang, it was enjoyable, very popular and we liked Dave because he didn’t threaten us or have us arrested. Of course the pottery had its funding withdrawn, why ever would it have been tolerated? The building which housed the pottery remained locked with all the pottery gear in there and unused for a very long time after Dave had his funding withdrawn.

This will be difficult for readers outside of north Wales to understand, but Dafydd’s gang ran everything, absolutely everything, in north Wales. The economy was wrecked and all there was were very low paid often part time jobs and secure jobs were unheard of unless one worked in the NHS, the County Councils, the police, in education or the law. All of which were the domain of the paedophile gang. Who owned the care homes which provided so many of the other jobs? Er, the paedophile gang and their friends. They ran the charidees, the ‘Gov’t initiatives’, even the pubs and restaurants, they ran everything. Nearly everyone I knew had been in north Wales for years, so had got used to this, but I did meet a few people new to the area who all commented that they had never seen such appalling employers as those in north Wales. They could be appalling, there were so few jobs that if someone was unlawfully sacked or walked out, there’d be another desperate person along within a few hours. It was why people worked in the dreadfully abusive ‘care homes’ or in the kids’ homes. I asked Brown the other day if he thought that the economy of north Wales was deliberately kept wrecked, because it was only that which ensured that Dafydd and the gang were able to run hundreds of ‘homes’ in which kids and vulnerable people were grossly abused and trafficked. Brown reckons that it was more a situation of hopeless greedy people with mates in Gov’t who wanted what money there was for them and their friends. I have always known that to be true, but know I’ve gained a bit of an understanding as to which levers were controlling the economy in north Wales, I do wonder if it was indeed a deliberate policy to ensure that north Wales stayed well and truly shafted…

 

To return to the man who ran the Shop in the patients’ lounge in the Hergest Unit from where goodies could be purchased. Some years later I met a retired academic from England who had undertaken the Art course at Coleg Menai when the man who ran the Shop had been on that course. The retired academic told me that the Art course had taken a contingent of ‘rather odd’ people, who had caused great problems, particularly one man, who on a field trip to Amsterdam had defected from the student group to conduct business with some big time drug dealers in Amsterdam… The ‘odd people’ were the Empowered Service Users who had been deemed worthy of Help because they hadn’t Upset People. I also knew that to access Help, one of the Coleg Menai students had taken part in a benefits fraud with a social worker…

 

The pensioner who lived in the old people’s bungalow in Rachub who flogged the baccy for died back in the late 1990s. I know someone who went to his funeral in London. They met his family and reported back that they were very unpleasant. Serious criminals who reminisced at the funeral about the Good Old Days when they were in the NF and hassled the ethnic minorities.

So how did Gwynedd County Council manage to give one of their old people’s bungalows to a man from a crime family in London while Ioan Bowen Rees proudly ran Fortress Gwynedd, Homes for Locals?

Yma O Hyd!

The Rachub bus stop was another site at which baccy and other goods were bought and sold among Empowered Service Users and others. My post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ described the neglect and abuse that Empowered Service Users and others were experiencing in Rachub and Bethesda, on the doorstep of Ioan Bowen Rees, the then Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council, who lived in Rachub, but in a grand Plas down a lane, hidden from the view of the proles by beech trees. Ioan served as an adviser to Dafydd Wigley. Ioan never waited at the bus stop, he could afford a car and an expensive one as well, but Ioan must have known what was going on at the bus stop because his teenaged children – one of whom evolved into International Rock Star Of The People Gruff Rhys (see post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’) – were too young to drive and they will have known people who went on the buses even if Ioan chauffeured them about himself.

The Empowered Service Users were often approached at the bus stop and asked if they wanted to sell their medication or swap it for goods. The trade was fuelled substantially by ‘Dafydd’s addicts’ who were all au fait with selling their drugs, because they only ever wanted Dafydd as a Top Doctor because he gave them huge quantities of any drugs that they requested. Dafydd was famous for this, that’s why he came highly recommended by the criminals, no-one else wanted to see the mad old bugger. Because Dafydd’s addicts told other ne’r-do-wells that Empowered Service Users never had any money and had prescription medication as well, people would ask them if they wanted to sell their tablets.

In the 1990s there was also a man who went around Bethesda and the surrounding villages in a van hiring out videos, which he would swap for prescription medication. I didn’t realise for some time that under the seats were the Grumble Vids, which could be exchanged for particularly sought after medication. By chatting to this man, I discovered that when he was young, he had been a patient of Dafydd’s. When he had children, there was of course a Referral to Dafydd. Once more, it was another family who over more than one generation, had been screwed over by Dafydd who ensured that they remained trapped in what Blair called the underclass. This man and his family were targeted by the gang – they had tried running little businesses, renting shops after saving up a bit of money etc but things had unravelled. Another family labelled as having a lot of ‘bad luck’ or not being very capable. Well if Dafydd’s gang hadn’t have forced them back into dealing in prescription drugs and the grumble vids, they’d have had a bit more of a chance at getting back on their feet.

 

I’d like to clarify something at this point. For years now, it has been put around by Top Docs and those who collude with them that Empowered Service Users are ‘stigmatised’. The only people who stigmatise the Empowered Service Users are the Top Doctors, they are by far the worst most bigoted offenders. I have mentioned that previously. What I have not stressed is why Empowered Service Users were told that people would stigmatise them if they ‘know that you’ve been in Denbigh’. Oh excuse me, the patients in Denbigh were friends with each other, looked out for each other to the extent that such profoundly vulnerable people could ever look after each other, the patients in Denbigh had no problem chatting about having Been In Denbigh. It was the rest of polite society who needed to ensure that the patients shut up about Being In Denbigh because it was known that what was being politely ignored and concealed out there was just so gross that no-one dared risk it becoming known.

You ran a paedophile gang and an empire of serious crime you bloody hypocrites and you did that while you banged on about playing harps and eating the bara brith. And don’t you ever dare tell me that it was all about language and nationality – my friends in Denbigh were Welsh, as Welsh as Ioan Bowen Rees was and he, Dafydd and Lucille made a killing out of their vulnerabilities. Literally.

I received an e mail from someone last summer who told me that he wished he’d seen the ‘corrupt little faces’ of the paedophiles’ friends when I turned up at Bangor and completed the speediest PhD in the history of the University of Wales. Yes, it was quite entertaining, they all had to pretend that they hadn’t noticed. Not that Bangor is 100% paedophiles’ friends, there are some very, very nice people at Bangor; I could usually tell who was a paedophiles’ friend because they’d start gurning in distress if I was too near them, but there were a few who were very well camouflaged who got under my radar.

 

With regard to Rhodri, Ann Clwyd, Martin Jones and the other MPs Of Compassion who sponsored and signed the EDMs in the Commons in March 1996. The cause of the rage and the EDMs were the actions of the Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council, who upon legal advice totally suppressed the Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd, 1974-95. It was known that the most terrible abuse had happened, but Municipal Mutual ordered the Report to be made available to no-one but their own lawyers; the Councillors themselves were not given access to the Report and Municipal Mutual told Clwyd that if anyone did get hold of that Report and disclose any of the contents, the Council’s insurance cover would be withdrawn and the Councillors themselves would be made personally liable for compensating any former kids in care who sued and this would lead to the Councillors being declared bankrupt and losing their homes. In the event of Councillor Malcolm King – who was considered a bit of a loose cannon having asked rather too many awkward questions about what was happening to those kids – getting his paws on a copy of the Jillings Report and breathing one word, Municipal Mutual demanded that he should be sacked. Malcolm King Chaired Clwyd County Council’s Social Services Committee. For full details see posts ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake’ and ‘The Aftermath Of The Jillings Report – In Parliament’.

Municipal Mutual were also the insurers of the North Wales Police.

Municipal Mutual acted at all times on the advice of their legal adviser, Michael Beloff QC, it was he who ensured that no-one was ever going to get to the truth of what had gone in in the children’s homes in Clwyd. Michael Beloff is a colleague of Cherie and a personal friend of Cherie and Miranda. When Miranda became PM, Beloff was entertained at Chequers. When Beloff advised Municipal Mutual, Miranda was the Leader of the Labour Party.

Any Labour MPs up for sponsoring and signing an EDM condemning that naughty insurance company?

When Rhodri was busy with EDMs condemning Municipal Mutual for following the legal advice given to them by a close friend of the leader of his own Party, Rhodri was the Opposition Spokesman on Welsh Affairs. He had previously worked alongside Miranda in the Shadow Energy team.

The year after Rhodri made his public display with the EDMs, Julie Morgan was elected as the MP for Cardiff North, voted in by all those middle class constituents who knew about the barrel of crap in north Wales.

Rhodri’s former bedfellow, Meri Huws aka the Crack Of Doom, in the 1980s worked as a social worker for Gwynedd County Council and her responsibilities included the children’s homes in Bangor, where kids were being abused and trafficked. See posts ‘Are You Local?’ and ‘People With Energy?’

When Merfyn Jones was appointed as VC of Bangor University, there was one fuck of a row and the fur flew because he made Meri Huws a PVC. People were frank in their opinions that Meri was completely unsuitable for such a position and Professor Dylan Jones-Evans, who hated Meri and had recently left Bangor under a huge cloud for pastures new at Glyndwr University, paid a visit to Bangor and enjoyed himself by asking people how it felt to be working in a university ‘with Meri fucking Huws as a PVC’. Dylan observed that Meri must be the first women to close the gender gap by opening her legs. I’ve got news for Dylan, that is a tried and tested way for those who break the glass ceiling and then boast about it, I’ve been mapping the phenomenon for years.

The reason why Dylan was having such a dig – part from the fact that he is Dylan of course – is that Meri’s appointment was accompanied by much bullshit about Meri being the first women PVC at Bangor. Yes Meri and what a bloody insult it was to every other woman in the place. The dirty deed was blamed on Merfyn ‘because he wants to pretend that he’s a feminist’. There were also rumours that Meri and Merfyn had been discussing Uganda together; one of my colleagues who had Inside Knowledge remarked that she felt sorry for any male boss of Meri’s because it would be automatically assumed that they had slept with the old slapper. The appointment was not Merfyn’s idea. I am sure that he is bright enough to know damn well what a bloody disaster Meri was going to be – which indeed she was. Merfyn was directly ordered to give Meri that job by the Welsh Gov’t, as part of their Wimmin’s Agenda.

The FM at the time was Rhodri Morgan. Who slept with a member of a trafficking gang, then years later ordered Merfyn to give her a job for which she was unqualified and unsuitable and then blamed Merfyn when everything that Meri touched turned to dust. It was the Crack of Doom who was responsible for the series of early disasters relating to the Pontio Arts Centre…

 

Neither do the two Plaid members who signed the EDMs re Municipal Mutual, Dafydd Wigley and Elfyn Llwyd, have any excuses. Apart from the fact that they were at the heart of the paedophiles’ friends in just about every way possible, Michael Beloff’s dad, Lord Max Beloff, got on very well with Ioan Bowen Rees and provided a glowing review of one of Ioan’s volumes. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ Ioan was an expert on democracy and local government.

Jesus Christ.

Max Beloff was one of the movers and shakers involved in the founding of the UK’s first private university, the University of Buckingham, which was closely associated with Thatcher and her mates from the IEA. See post ‘The Bloody State We’re In’ for further information on the Beloff clan.

 

Just 14 months after Miranda and Cherie’s mate Michael Beloff saved everybody’s bacon, Miranda became PM!

 

My post ‘The Bloody State We’re In’ provided details of Stuart Errington, one of the Directors of Municipal Mutual at the time of the Jillings Investigation and Report. Another Director was Sir John Lovill. John Lovill is listed as having been the Director of 43 companies and his address is given as one in Lewes, East Sussex. John Allen owned brothels in Brighton, to which he trafficked kids in care from north Wales. Yet another Municipal Mutual Director at the time was Lord Merlyn-Rees.

  • Blakey | britishtvsitcoms

 

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

Merlyn Rees was President of the Video Standards Council from 1990, when John Allen and the gang were busy making huge quantities of porn using the kids from children’s homes in north Wales. Rees was the first Chancellor of the University of Glamorgan, 1994-02.

 

Recent news reports reassure us that things at the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board are getting worse, which is quite some achievement. The BBC reported that the A&E waiting times at Wrexham Maelor Hospital are now the worst that have been recorded of any hospital in Wales since targets were introduced. All targets missed at all times. The waiting times at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd are the second worst in Wales and are ‘getting worse’.

 

The Proud Legacy Of The Top Docs Of North Wales
Veradrakeposter.jpg

 

There has been another baby death at the Betsi which should not have happened. The Betsi solicitor, Patricia Gaskell, was wheeled out to apologise and reassure the world that everyone really was very sorry and it Won’t Happen Again. That’s the Patricia Gaskell who used to be the Ysbyty Gwynedd solicitor and who pretended to deal with my complaint about Ysbyty Gwynedd in 2002, part of which was me being assaulted and injured by an Angel and three healthcare assistants. Gaskell did an excellent imitation of being a decent woman who wanted to resolve the matter by mediation. The only Top Doctor who agreed to attend the mediation walked out after three minutes without contributing and refused to return when Gaskell asked him to. The mediation was suggested by Gaskell and paid for by the NW Wales NHS Trust. I then received a letter from Keith Thomson, the then CEO of the Trust, telling me and my lawyer that the mediation had broken down because of me, that I had now been classed as a ‘vexatious complainant’ and that no more letters of mine would be answered. My complaint was never ever investigated.

There were subsequently more complaints from patients who said that they had been assaulted who named the very people whom I had named.

When my lawyers eventually took Thomson to the High Court and he was threatened with imprisonment if he did not hand over the records which he was unlawfully witholding, among the records were letters from Gaskell to the staff who had assaulted me telling them that they did not have to answer questions or attend the mediation. There was also a memo from Gaskell to a manager asking for ‘more nurses down the police station please’ to make statements about me ‘threatening to kill’ a manager. The trial collapsed on the first day because the Angels had perjured themselves. There was no investigation and now Gaskell is apologising for dead babies. She probably congratulated the midwives and drank champers with them when the baby’s parents weren’t around.

The news reports re the dead baby whom Gaskell probably had a good laugh over stated that a Top Doctor had suggested that perhaps the baby would have lived if he had been treated at Arrowe Park in Liverpool, rather than the Special Care Baby Unit in north Wales. The public of north Wales BEGGED for that Unit, there was a campaign led by Top Doctors, abuse and threats were hurled at Merfyn Jones and Mary Burrows at a public meeting when they were still leading that Board and trying to restrain the paedophiles’ friends because people feared that they might say no to the Unit. Now the paedophiles’ friends have got exactly what they demanded. A Special Care Baby Unit, in north Wales, for which Carwyn stumped up. But oooh, this baby’s death, ooh it won’t be the staff guvnor, its that fucking unit, ooh, if only this baby had been at Arrowe Park…

There was one Gwynedd Top Doc who wanted neonates treated at Arrowe Park. It was Dr Lyndon Miles, whom I recently found out is a well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend. Lyndon is mates with Edwina Hart and was the Chair of the Gwynedd Local Heath Board. The Gwynedd Local Health Board refused to correspond with me when I was unlawfully arrested by Elfed and Martin and unlawfully refused treatment. Arrowe Park is part of the Liverpool empire of the paedophiles’ friends.

Lyndon, do you know anything about this Top Doc who is suggesting that Arrowe Park would have been a better option?

Never mind Vaughan, give them all a pay rise and tell those bastard patients to stop Talking Down The NHS! Perish the thought that anyone might go in and arrest these lying, perjuring, murdering bastards, who never ever stop screaming, demanding more and blaming everyone else for their cock-ups, even when they have been given exactly what they have asked for at a cost of many millions.

 

I mentioned previously on this blog that my former colleagues and I recently won an award for academic excellence, on the basis of the last journal article that we published together. We wrote this article after I had been made redundant, unlawfully detained in Parkhead and Wrexham Maelor and the paedophile gang had wrecked my life yet again. One of my co-authors, Professor Howard Davis, attended the ceremony in Toronto where a plaque with our names engraved upon it was due to be awarded, but the plaque wasn’t ready, so Howard received the public congratulations and was told that the plaque would be sent on to him. We have now heard that the plaque has been dispatched and Howard is organising a get-together, so that we can celebrate.

I am looking forward to catching up with my friends/former colleagues/fellow award winners. They are: Howard, who was described by a member of the paedophile gang as a ‘cold male academic’; Graham Day, the man who came under attack from ‘The Guardian’ as a result of false allegations on the part of a paedophile gang; and Marta Eichsteller, who was identified as being one of the best twenty young sociologists in the world but who was told by the paedophiles’ friends that she should not be employed at Bangor University because she is not Welsh. I am sure that Bangor University will be delighted to issue a press release informing the wider academic community of this Event.

More Dogs That Did Not Bark

Just a few days ago John McDonnell announced that the Labour Party were going to back the trade unions to protect workers in the gig economy. John McDonnell has obviously noticed – but not admitted – that for many years now, the trade union movement has dismally failed to protect the lowest paid or insecure workers. Instead the trade unions have been dedicated to helping the semi-professional or professional middle classes – Angels, teachers, university lecturers etc. Not people with bankers’ salaries, but not people who are anywhere near the bottom of the heap; people who believe that they are ‘low paid’ because they are on £40k pa. I acknowledge that £40k pa in central London doesn’t get you very far if you have children, but nonetheless there are people in London who are working for far, far less, whom the trade union movement has only recently noticed even exist.

I treasure the memory of Eileen Tilley, the corrupt UCU rep at Bangor University, planning a march of ‘her members’ through Bangor, to highlight their oppression. They were obviously going to go down through the High Street, past all the empty shops, the pound shops, the charity shops, past the Job Centre where there were very few jobs offering anything above the minimum wage, marching past the many people who had gone into Bangor to do their shopping on the bus because they didn’t have a car. Do you know stressed Tilley, that some lecturers with years of experience were only on £40k pa? Er, yes. Do you know that some of those lecturers  – not all but some – did absolutely nothing and gave their teaching and marking to the PhD students and post-docs to do (who were not paid for it) and enjoyed full protection from Tilley and UCU when they behaved appallingly towards their colleagues? Do you know that when Tilley was planning to march on Bangor, the average annual income in Gwynedd was less that £18k? See previous posts for more Eileen Tilley-related lies and laffs.

It was Lord Clive Jenkins, he who was substantially responsible for ensuring that the Lord Windbag ended up as leader of the Labour Party – that went well didn’t it –  who declared that his big achievement had been to unionise the middle classes. Many of the now unionised middle classes are employing those whom the unions are not interested in as their cleaners. For the background on the over-indulged twat that was Clive Jenkins, see post ‘I Warn You…’.

The ‘Morning Star’ devoted much coverage to John McDonnell’s ‘pledge’. The ‘Morning Star’ is excited about the TUC beano which I think is being held  at the moment or is about to be held, so all the old favourites have been given space in the newspaper over the past few days – UCU, Len McCluskey and Len’s union UNITE etc.

 

Mark Serwotka, the General Secretary of PCS, the Public and Commercial Services union, the union for civil servants, has been in the ‘Morning Star’ as well and Mark was also the lead story on the ‘Today’ programme yesterday. Mark is the latest figure in the firing line re the allegations and counter-allegations of anti-semitism that are currently destroying the Labour Party. Mark Serwotka is loved by many on the left, although the ammo fired at him by his critics has received much coverage, such as his salary of well over £100k pa.  Mark has also provided the Top Doctors with a bit of free PR. In 2013 Serwotka was fitted with a battery-powered ventricular assist device after picking up a viral infection from the family dog. He was readmitted to hospital on 30 August 2016, when the ventricular assist device developed a clot and his doctors then placed him on the urgent transplant list. In December 2016 Mark had a heart transplant at Papworth Hospital.

As any fule kno, whistleblowers find that somehow they just never receive effective treatment from the Top Doctors, no matter how serious or disabling their conditions. I had yet another e mail from a target yesterday; someone who worked as an Angel in Manchester, relocated to north Wales years ago and complained about Dafydd. She has certainly paid a high price – sectioned, discredited and refused treatment for a number of serious conditions which she subsequently developed. She ended up losing a leg and is now in a wheelchair, having not worked for many years. She told me that this had happened because she challenged the north Wales NHS over their malpractice. Doing that won’t have helped, but I was able to reassure her that where Dafydd and the mental health services were concerned, no-one is safe. I spent 30 years observing at close quarters and there is undoubtedly  a ‘culture’ (more accurately described as an ‘evil’) within the mental health services in which patients are all seen as the Enemy. Whatever their background, patients are viewed as Manipulative, time-wasters, fakes, lazy, benefit scroungers and liars and are pathologised by the ‘services’. I have reassured many people that there was nothing that they could have done to have elicited appropriate care and treatment. The ‘services’ were running a trafficking ring and no decent members of staff who did join them ever lasted more than a few months, they just walked away. Some of those staff did try to raise concerns about the abuse of patients, serious misconduct and severe workplace bullying but were ignored. They then found that their lives were destroyed and that they could no longer obtain jobs or effective medical care. Word got around and now no-one dares blow the whistle.

As the General Secretary of PCS, Mark Serwotka will have received a warm welcome from the Top Docs. Mark’s union contains many people who, by keeping their mouths shut, have ensured that the sort of criminality which prevailed in north Wales continues. Even Mark’s members in junior positions such as those who work in the benefits offices are witness to the wrongdoing – they see the paperwork compiled by the NHS/social services staff, they also interview the claimants and they do notice that there are discrepancies, sometimes major ones.

In the late 1990s the benefits agency threatened to prosecute me for fraud. I was called in for a recorded interview with two Interrogators, after being given a caution that this was a criminal investigation. I stood accused of claiming disability benefits while working. I explained that I had indeed done that, but I was legally allowed to work under the then ‘therapeutic earnings’ scheme. They snapped at me that I should have received permission from a Top Doc and the DSS before I undertook the work. I told them that Dr Tony Francis had told me to go ahead and begin the part-time job that I’d been offered – it wasn’t a post as Chair of ICI, it was a part time job in the notorious chicken factory in Llangefni, Grampian Meats, where I witnessed a few things that almost equalled the practices in the NHS, but that’s another story. I was accused of lying and it was observed that as someone with a Masters degree – someone had told them that as well – of course I ‘knew the rules’ and a prosecution against me would now be mounted.

The benefits agency made one mistake. During the interrogation, they pompously opened my file and leafed through the documents. I caught a glimpse of a letter from Tony Francis to them, regarding my application to undertake part-time work. I pointed it out to them – then I saw ANOTHER letter from Tony Francis, dated a few months later, once again re the therapeutic earnings scheme. So they had TWO letters from Tony Francis informing them that I was applying to undertake part-time work, as I was legally allowed. I did not receive any communication from them giving me permission but no-one told me that I should have. Francis told me that I could go ahead and get a job. So I did.

When I spotted the two letters from Tony Francis, I challenged the officious gits. They blustered and did the ‘rules are rules’ bit and ‘this time we won’t prosecute if you agree to pay us the dosh back’. The dosh involved was not much – I had only been earning an extra £40/week as allowed for a few weeks. So I said OK. I then received a letter demanding more than £1000k that I had ‘defrauded’. I asked what was going on, pointing out that we were talking about £40 per/week for a few weeks. I was told that because I had ‘broken the rules’, I had to repay ALL the benefits that I received for the few weeks that I had worked and I was now barred from claiming benefits having been caught fiddling.

I had no option but to get a job, although according to the mental health services I was ‘seriously ill’. I wasn’t in a good state, but that was because they kept having me arrested. So I did get a job despite the mental health services telling me that I wasn’t fit for full-time work. I got a job in an old folks home. It went fine for a week until the owner of the home was asked if he knew that he was employing a Dangerous Mental Patient…

So I got another job. The same thing happened again….

This proved to be a pattern which persisted until the day that I left Wales.

Years later I found out who had reported me for fraud back when I was working at the chicken factory in the late 1990s. It was an employee of the mental health services…

This was just my experience re the collusion of the benefits agency with wrongdoing which was the tip of yet another iceberg involving the paedophile gang. Because I am not Eileen Tilley and I was mates with people who really were having a hard time, I heard other stories of the benefits agency shafting people who had been targeted by those we know and love. More recently, one of my more middle class friends who’s daughter is the manager of a benefits agency section in an industrial northern town told me that there is a massive problem with organised gangs using false IDs and then claiming disability and other benefits. My friend’s daughter was working with a big police investigation into this type of crime.

Dafydd has been involved with false IDs for many years now. I have been shown the documents and have heard people boasting of the favours that Dafydd had done them. Years ago Dafydd was obtaining British Army pensions for people who had not served in the Army (see previous posts) and he was also very helpful to people who should not have had driving licences either…

Serious organised crime.

‘There is no evidence that Dr Jones has ever behaved in an unprofessional manner.’

 

Mark Serwotka has been General Secretary of the PCS since 2002, so he wasn’t in that particular post when the benefits agency in north Wales was colluding with the paedophile gang. The PCS has a complex and rather troubled history and Serwotka only became General Secretary after a civil war within the union.

Serwotka stood on the left wing ticket against the ‘moderate’ incumbent, the General Secretary  Barry Arthur Reamsbottom, who had also been General Secretary of the CPSA (Civil and Public Services Association), the PCS’s predecessor.  

Reamsbottom is from Aberdeen and lived in a children’s home run by Catholic nuns, Nazareth House, from the age of 7 to 14. He started his career in the DHSS in Aberdeen, before becoming a full-time trade union employee and eventually Press Officer for the CPSA, 1987-92.

Reamsbottom was elected General Secretary of CPSA in 1998 on the Moderate ticket. In 1999, Reamsbottom oversaw the merger of CPSA and the Public Services, Tax and Commerce Unions (PTC) to form the PCS. As part of the merger, there was an agreement that Reamsbottom could continue as General Secretary until 2004.  However, in a union members vote, 97% ordered a fresh election. Reamsbottom decided not to stand for re-election on the proviso he stood down in 2002, but would continue to be paid until 2004.

Reamsbottom’s wanted Hugh Lanning to take over as General Secretary of the PCS, not Mark Serwotka. An election was held in 2000, in which Lanning lost to Serwotka. Lanning accepted the result, but Reamsbottom, rather than retire as agreed in 2002, instead continued in the post claiming that the election had been invalid. At a meeting of the Moderate-dominated PCS Executive in May 2002, a motion was carried reversing the election of Serwotka. Reamsbottom said afterwards, ‘I have been through a hard school… I would rather go out in a box’.

While Barry Reamsbottom was General Secretary of the union representing people who were colluding with a gang of traffickers in north Wales – and no doubt elsewhere as well – people I knew in north Wales did go out in a box.

After Serwotka took office, Reamsbottom and Serwotka proceeded to countermand one another, with Reamsbottom ordering Serwotka’s staff and secretary to stop working for him.  In late 2002, a High Court judge confirmed that the election had been carried out properly and Reamsbottom had no further claim to the office.

So in spite of all the crap which has been thrown at Serwotka, the ‘moderate’ Reamsbottom seems to have been colluding with serious organised crime and was prepared to do anything to hang onto his job, even after he and his mate Lanning were very firmly voted out by their own members.

Baz Reamsbottom became Vice President of the NATO-sponsored think tank, the Trade Union Committee for European and Transatlantic Understanding.

In Nov 2000, the ‘Mail On Sunday’ published an article about Reamsbottom which included the information that Reamsbottom had ‘revealed he organised a breakout by 60 children from a notorious home where they were beaten and abused by nuns during the 1960s…lived at Nazareth House….repeatedly struck and humiliated by staff in the Catholic Church-run order. In September, nun Marie Docherty, also known as Sister Alphonso, was found guilty of cruelty by beating and force-feeding children during a period between 1965 and 1980…’

Reamsbottom provided this heart-breaking interview during the year in which the PCS voted for Mark Serwotka rather than Reamsbottom’s mate Hugh Lanning, which caused Reamsbottom to break the agreement that he would stand down himself and hand over in 2002. The tear-jerking interview was provided 10 months after the publication of the Waterhouse Report, when people were still yelling loudly that the Waterhouse Inquiry was a massive cover-up and that some very serious criminals leading a huge paedophile ring had not been touched at all.

 

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

 

Reamsbottom told the ‘Mail On Sunday’ all about those cruel nuns at Nazereth House, but he didn’t mention a word about the Top Docs in north Wales slowly but surely framing those who had Dared Complain, let alone neglecting them so badly that they were found dead.

Tony Francis, who was one of those facilitating the trafficking ring in north Wales, used to tell his patients that although he grew up in East Anglia in a middle class family, his mum was very troubled, suffered with severe depression throughout her life and had been unable to look after him when he was a child. Francis used to tell us that his mum had been a devout Roman Catholic although as a child, she had been horribly abused in an institution run by the Catholic Church. Francis talked about this years before anyone openly discussed child abuse in the Catholic Church or indeed acknowledged the existence of the gang that he was facilitating himself. He did say the same things over a period of many years though, so I suspect that he was telling the truth about that.

Tony Francis also told us that his wife Sadie’s mother had been a doctor, but became an artist rather than work as a Top Doctor. Sadie’s mother had been pressurised into entering medicine by her own mother, who had been one of Britain’s first women doctors. I remember Francis telling me that Sadie’s family lived in the Yorkshire area – her artwork was that of industrial landscapes. So Sadie grew up in a medical family in Yorkshire and probably a very grand and possibly famous one if her grandmother had been one of the first women doctors, because they didn’t let just any women into medical schools in those days. Furthermore, Yorkshire was at the heart of that big paedophile gang which was facilitated by the Top Doctors, starred Jimmy Savile and had links to Dafydd et al.

If I’d been Sadie the last thing that I would have done is to have become a Top Doctor and moved to north Wales. However, a possible explanation as to why this happened has occurred to me. Tony Francis arrived to work in north Wales in the early 1980s from Manchester University (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’), where he had been working with Dafydd’s mate Dr Bob Hobson, who had facilitated the earlier abuse ring at the Maudsley and relocated to Manchester in 1974, where he facilitated another ring there (see post ‘The Mentor’). Tony Francis arrived in north Wales as part of the reinforcements in the wake of Mary Wynch embarking on her historical litigation against Dafydd et al, which by the time that Francis arrived at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh to work was on its way to the Master Of The Rolls (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’).

That lot knew that they could be in very deep trouble. Although Mary subsequently won her case, those who were ordered to pay compensation refused and simply demanded that Mary return to court to enforce payment. Mary did take further legal action and also tried to follow up other criminal wrongdoing. Again she proved her case. However in 1994, Michael Howard, who was by then Home Secretary, chewed Mary up and spat her out, leaving her elderly, penniless and with a compensation payment that would not have covered her legal fees yet alone anything else (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’).

Michael Howard had grown up in Swansea, where there was an abuse gang operating linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Howard was a barrister himself. In 1975 he married Sandra Paul, who in the 1960s was a ‘model’ and knew much about the Ugandan activities of Swinging London at the time. Sandra Paul’s first husband was Robin Douglas-Home, the nephew of the former PM Sir Alec Douglas-Home. At the time of his divorce from Sandra in 1965, Robin was discussing Uganda with Princess Margaret. Who had already discussed Uganda with Jeremy Thorpe. Thorpe used to boast that he had discussed Uganda with Ma’am Darling and her husband Lord Snowdon and it was partly because of this that various events in Thorpe’s history were not raised at his 1979 Old Bailey trial for inciting the murder of his former partner Norman Scott (see post ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’). Lord Snowdon enjoyed the services of rent boys, as well as a variety of other people and had links with north Wales, his grandfather being Top Doctor psychiatrist Sir Robert Armstrong-Jones, who grew up in the region and studied at UCNW (Bangor University). See post ’95 Glorious Years!’

Robin Douglas-Home killed himself in 1968, after suffering serious depression. Which is a fate that has met many people who could have acted as witnesses to the activities of Dafydd and his associates.

For more details regarding Michael Howard, Sandra Paul and Robin Douglas-Home, see eg. post ‘The Crucible’.

 

I have previously discussed how, in the mid-1980s, a collection of Nice Young Doctors arrived in north Wales in an attempt to pretend that Things Had Changed. These Nice Young Doctors were not obviously barking mad like Dafydd and they often had much better bedside manners than those Top Docs who had inflicted themselves on the population previously, but they frequently turned out to be no better and they certainly didn’t stop the serious abuses and crimes of their colleagues.

When Tony Francis arrived in north Wales, Sadie was advertised as that lovely young wife of his who was also a Top Doc, but not a consultant, just a junior Top Doc at the North Wales Hospital, Denbigh with the dreadful Dafydd. I was told that Sadie was desperate to get away from Dafydd and Denbigh and sure enough she subsequently turned up as a Top Doc at Ysbyty Gwynedd. Like the Little Women who lied about being attacked by Dangerous Patients in court in order to secure convictions against complainants and witnesses, Sadie was robustly touted as a Caring Lady Doctor. She was working with a paedophile gang, she knew it and furthermore she had known that she would be working with them when she and Tony relocated from Manchester. But Sadie was from a medical family who worked with the related gang in Yorkshire. Presumably Sadie was every bit as much a part of the reinforcements sent in to help Dafydd et al post-Mary Wynch as Tony was, if not more so.

Sadie coming from Medical Royalty might explain why she somehow was appointed a consultant in the late 1980s/early 1990s after she had been a clinical assistant. I have explained previously how no Top Doc ever wanted a job as a clinical assistant because it was categorised as a ‘non-career’ position, one in which a Top Doc could not become a consultant no matter how much they redeemed themselves. I have known for years that a fiddle was done on the part of Gwynedd Health Authority to enable Sadie to bag that post, but the fiddle must have been known to the GMC as well, because they hold details of Top Doc’s CVs and posts. Because they were all so dishonest at Ysbyty Gwynedd, the patients were unaware of Sadie’s very junior status when she arrived in north Wales and I don’t think that any other patient but me knew that Sadie should never have been appointed as a consultant. Yet by 1991, Sadie was appearing on documentation as a ‘consultant psychiatrist’. So the sleight of hand took place at some point in the late 1980/early 1990s.

Sadie was legally barred from becoming a consultant. But there she was, a consultant psychiatrist in Gwynedd, registered with the GMC. While she repeatedly perjured herself, along with her husband, in the early 1990s in successive attempts to have me imprisoned, with the MDU and the MDU’s solicitor, Ann Ball, for Hempsons, knowing that perjury was being committed. See previous posts. Ann Ball and Hempsons had advised the Francis’s not to take legal action against me. The Francis’s ignored that advice and Ann Ball and Sir Robert Francis QC (see post ‘The Sordid Role Of Sir Robert Francis QC’) still went ahead with the cases against me.

The prosecutions were authorised by the then Attorney-General Sir Patrick Mayhew, a corrupt barrister who had previously worked for the MDU and who, some years previously, had been responsible for ensuring that the paedophile Top Doctor Dr Morris Fraser continued to practice after being convicting of molesting a boy. Mayhew served as N Ireland Secretary, 1992-97, under John Major, during the North Wales Police investigation into the possibility of a paedophile ring operating in north Wales and the first part of the Waterhouse Inquiry. The North Wales/Cheshire ring was linked with the N Ireland ring based at Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast, which was alleged to have involved Lord Mountbatten and Anthony Blunt.

Dr Morris Fraser had ‘treated’ boys at Kincora and later worked at Springfield Hospital, the mental health unit attached to St George’s Hospital Medical School and then UCH. I was working at St George’s when the Francis’s mounted the first prosecution for contempt of court against me and by the time that they mounted the second one just weeks later, I had been forced out of my job, after a period as a patient in Springfield Hospital. The Top Docs at Springfield were, without my knowledge, directly in touch with Dafydd, Tony Francis and Lucille Hughes and everyone was agreed that I was ‘extremely dangerous’ and should be placed in a secure hospital (see previous posts).

Three years before I began work at St George’s, their Professor of Paediatrics, Oliver Brooke was jailed for the possession of child porn. Ollie was a key player in a pan-European paedophile/trafficking ring.

The Chair of the GMC when Sadie was perjuring herself and probably when she was given that job as a consultant was Robert – later Lord – Kilpatrick. Kilpatrick was a Scottish Top Doctor, who before he was appointed Chair of the GMC, was Dean of Leicester University Medical School (see post ‘Remember Girls – Never Get Into A Car With A Stranger!’). Leicester University was fully on board with the paedophile ring in Leicester, as were the NHS and other welfare services in Leicester. See previous posts. In 1987, Dr James Earp, a Top Doctor in Leicester, colluded with Dafydd and the gang when Earp was asked to provide an ‘independent’ opinion after Dafydd et al mounted a prosecution against me (see post ‘An Expert From England’).

When Sadie and Tony were doing everything possible to have me imprisoned, one Greville Janner, then the MP for Leicester West, had recently been interviewed by the police as part of an investigation into sexual assaults on children in care in Leicester. Janner was never charged, although many years later the DPP admitted that he should have been and was unable to explain why he wasn’t. Janner’s mate Frank Beck, a Leicestershire social worker, was charged, convicted and subsequently received several life sentences for many, many sexual and physical assaults upon children in care in Leicestershire. See previous posts. Beck always maintained that he took the blame for crimes committed by High Society others who got off Scot free. Which was exactly what the bottom-feeding social care/social workers who were jailed as a result of the ‘exhaustive’ investigations in north Wales and Cheshire said.

When Greville Janner next appeared in the Commons after being interviewed by the police for offending against children, he received a round of applause from the public spirited bunch that cluttered up Westminster. The Speaker at the time was Bernard Weatherill, who had succeeded the child molester George Thomas in 1983. Which was about the time that Tony and Sadie arrived in north Wales. Tony had studied and trained at Cardiff, where the whole medical and political establishment were concealing George Thomas’s offending and also knew what Dafydd et al were doing in north Wales. Tony Francis told his patients that when he was at Cardiff University, he knew the Windbag.

When Frank Beck was jailed, Tony and Sadie knew where a great many bodies were buried. Literally.

I have no idea who Sadie’s mother was, let alone her history-making grandmother, but Sadie’s name always appeared on the Medical Register as Sadie Bentz Francis, so presumably Bentz was a family name, possibly a maternal one.

‘We Didn’t Know’

 

Lord Robert Kilpatrick was asked to become Chair of the GMC in 1989. Did he respond to a distress flare as well? By 1989, I was writing to the GMC raising my deepest concerns about the conduct of Top Docs in north Wales, Mary had been featured in the London-based media and Alison Taylor wouldn’t shut up either.

Sadie was not the only Top Doctor at Ysbyty Gwynedd who should not have held a position as a consultant. Quasim Ijaz was given a position as a consultant psychiatrist when he should not have and followed it up with a truly disastrous record of patient harm. See previous posts. In the mid-1990s, Ysbyty Gwynedd hit the headlines when one of their cardiologists, Dr David Thomas, drove his car off the edge of a mountain pass in a suicide attempt. He was sectioned and detained in the Hergest Unit; the other patients liked him and felt very sorry for him. However, he should never have been treated there, because his confidentiality was breached in every way. David Thomas had tried to kill himself after it was discovered that he’d lied about his qualifications and should never have been given a job as a cardiologist. The senior managers of Gwynedd Health Authority ranted away in the media about how they’d never have the lying bastard back and I watched it all knowing that David Thomas was not the only Top Doc who had lied and shouldn’t have had a job as a consultant.

The Medical Director of Ysbyty Gwynedd was Terry Maxwell, a heart and lung specialist. Maxwell was a graduate of Liverpool and was on such good terms with them that Liverpool Medical School rang his daughter Sonia up BEFORE she had applied to medical school and offered her an unconditional place to read medicine, because as one of Sonia’s close mates told me ‘they know her dad’. Sonia Maxwell subsequently went to a London medical school, so two fingers up to Liverpool, but later rocked up working as a GP in Llanberis. Where she refused to treat a Hergest Unit patient who had complained…

When David Thomas was in the news, Tony Francis told me that the senior managers of Gwynedd Health Authority were trying to force Sadie out of her job because of her support for David Thomas. Those senior managers knew that, like Dr Thomas, Sadie should not have had her job. It was they who had appointed her. Terry Maxwell was the Medical Director who gradually closed the mental health services in Gwynedd down in the run up to the Waterhouse Inquiry and throughout it. Scores of patients became destitute and a number died. Maxwell was given a bonus by the Health Authority for doing it.

Maxwell won’t have put the boot into the mental health services because they were facilitating a trafficking ring, because he was fully on board with that anyway. Terry Maxwell was known as a complete bastard who lined his pocket from his private work, he had no principles. The grade A scrap between Maxwell, David Thomas, Sadie, Tony and Uncle Tom Cobley and all will just have been another example of the paedophile gang and their friends scrapping, which they did constantly. They exceeded even the description of the infighting between the ancient Greeks, as described on Melvyn Bragg’s ‘In Our Time’ yesterday.

For more about Terry Maxwell, see post ‘ Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’.

 

 

 

Interestingly enough, Mark Serwotka was adopted from a Catholic orphanage in Cardiff, by a Polish-born British father and a Welsh mother. In 1979, aged sixteen, Mark joined the Civil Service and started work as a benefits clerk, joining the union on the first day at work. Serwotka became a union representative in 1980 and a personal case officer in 1995.

After Serwotka won his battles with Reamsbottom and Lanning to become General Secretary of the PCS, in 2005 he was elected unopposed for another term. No other candidates were allowed to stand as Serwotka was the only candidate with the required 25 branch nominations. In 2009, Serwotka was re-elected for a five year term, gaining 37,866 votes against Rob Bryson’s 21,883. In 2014, Serwotka was elected unopposed for a fourth five-year term.

In the 2000 General Secretary election, Serwotka pledged that if elected he would only accept the equivalent of an average civil servant’s wage. Serwotka returns around £8,000 of his annual salary to the union. In 2011, his total package was worth £126,258 including pension contributions of £27,860.

How many ‘average civil servants’ earn £100k? I look forward to Mark Serwotka joining Eileen Tilley on her next March For The Oppressed through Bangor. Perhaps Tilley should choose Blaenau Ffestiniog for her next Jarrow March of the Middle Classes, they’re having an even harder time in Blaenau Ffestiniog than they are in Bangor and they didn’t even have a cash point in the town until a few months ago after Liz Saville Roberts, the local Plaid MP, led a campaign . At least now the merchant bankers over there can take out a few fivers for their essentials. Let UCU take the fight to the Fat Cats!

Serwotka was a member of Socialist Organiser in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He caused controversy during a speech at the 1985 Annual Conference of the Civil and Public Services Association when he described part-time workers, many of whom were trade union members, as ‘Scab Labour’. He was later a supporter of the Socialist Alliance and then Respect.

In February 2013, Serwotka was among those who gave their support to the People’s Assembly in a letter published by ‘The Guardian’ newspaper. Serwotka attempted to vote in the 2015 Labour Leadership Election, but was among those who had their vote rejected by the Party. Not that the attempts to rig the voting worked, Jezza was still elected.

It all rather reminded me of the spoof article allegedly written by Carol Thatcher which ‘Private Eye’ published years ago, in which Carol wrote that ‘the family were all at the count and dad made everyone laugh by ripping up all the slips which didn’t have a cross next to mum’s name’.

 

In March 2016, Serwotka rejoined the Labour Party after being expelled from it over 25 years earlier. He wrote in ‘The Huffington Post’: ‘Jeremy [Corbyn] is the first Labour leader in a generation who unequivocally supports the unions and his opposition to the trade union bill has been crucial.’ He added ‘I have joined to support Jeremy in transforming the party. And I want as many people as possible to join Labour, and to get involved in the fight against cuts where they live. This is our chance to build a social movement and form a government that can offer hope to the millions of people that deserve so much better than these contemptible Tories’. 

Those will be the contemptible Tories who were re-elected throughout the 1980s and the first half the 1990s because no-one on the left was prepared to blow the whistle on what exactly was going on in Thatch’s and Major’s Gov’ts.

This Baroness grew up on Anglesey and her parents were good friends with Lord Cledwyn, the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-70. Lord Cledwyn first met Sunny Jim Callaghan in the Baroness’s parent’s house in Holyhead in 1949. Lord Cledwyn, years later, provided a substantial boost to the Windbag’s political career. Lucille Hughes was the Children’s Officer for Anglesey, 1966-69.

Serwotka is married, an avid Cardiff City fan and lives in Chipstead, Surrey. Ahead of a visit by Pope Benedict XVI in September 2010, Serwotka was named as one of the hundred most influential Catholics in Britain by ‘The Tablet’. 

 

Amidst the almighty noise concerning organised abuse in the Catholic Church, the BBC are now banging on about what the Catholic Church did in Chile in terms of sexual abuse, there was a programme about it recently on Radio 4. What the Catholic Church did in Chile was certainly not very nice, but there was an elephant in the room which was carefully ignored by Radio 4 – a man called General Pinochet. After overthrowing a democratically elected leader, Augusto Pinochet murdered thousands of people while the British Gov’t had diplomatic links with him and supported his regime.

In October 1998, an elderly Pinochet was indicted for human rights violations – including 94 counts of torture of Spanish citizens, the 1975 assassination of a Spanish diplomat and one count of conspiracy to commit torture – committed in Chile, by a Spanish magistrate who obtained an international arrest warrant; the idea was to extradite Pinochet to Spain to face trial. Pinochet was placed under house arrested while in a private clinic in London six days later and held in London for a year and a half – first at the clinic, then at a privately rented house – before finally being released by the British Gov’t in March 2000.

While in London, Pinochet had tea with his old mate Thatch, who was outraged at the attempt to put the old bastard on trial and described him as a ‘good friend of Britain’. The then Home Secretary Jack Straw tied himself up in knots in his efforts not to have the murdering git handed over to the Spanish authorities. When Pinochet was initially placed under arrest he didn’t realise  – in the luxury of his surroundings with his every need attended to by the best Top Doctors that blood money could buy, he assumed that the police officers had been placed there to protect him. Which turned out to be the correct assumption. No-one got in to assassinate him and the Top Doctors provided evidence that the poor old General was on his last legs and was far too frail and near to death’s door to stand trial. Jack kindly accepted the word of the Top Docs and used it to overturn a Law Lords decision to extradite him.

Thatcher’s mate was loaded into a wheelchair and onto a plane, where he flew back to Chile. Upon arrival in Chile, Pinochet got up out of his Magic Wheelchair, having made a splendid recovery during the flight home and walked over to his waiting family, where he was warmly welcomed. Thatcher’s friend lived for another six years.

I will soon be blogging about the expensive Top Docs and the private London hospital who assisted and hosted the old torturer; he had gone all the way to London in the first place to have an operation on his back.

The identities of the Top Docs who lied in their evidence to Jack in order to save a war criminal from trial were not made public.

I can reassure everyone however that for once Dafydd was not involved. I knew the Hergest patient who, when Spain wanted Pinochet extradited, rang Dafydd, pretending to be from the Spanish Embassy, addressed Dafydd as ‘Senor Jones’ asked Dafydd if he would certify Pinochet as being ‘fit for trial’. Dafydd slammed the phone down. Which was unusual for Dafydd, he usually said yes to anything, no matter how illegal or ridiculous, once the magic words ‘money is no object Dr Jones’ had been uttered. Perhaps by then Dafydd’s ‘self-esteem’ had taken such a battering that he was no longer prepared to believe that world leaders were in need of his services. Unless of course Dafydd had already supplied the expert opinion to Jack Straw stating that Pinochet was NOT fit for trial and had to be released and  flown back home first class….

Wife of a VC who has challenged a paedophile gang needs life-saving treatment for a brain tumour? Oh fuck off. Now where’s my next patient, the elderly Chilean gentleman with the bad back? Ooh don’t worry sir, you’ll be well-looked after here…

I do keep stressing this – the RC Church might have much to answer for, but the Top Docs are at the bottom of every scandal. They provide the dishonest medical opinions for courts; they get the early retirements and pensions for people who have been caught doing nasty things to people in their care and others; they section the dissenters and declare whistleblowers unfit for work; and when they get really desperate, they fail to provide effective treatment for life-threatening conditions. The Top Docs are at the bottom of every slurry pit. Without the Top Docs, the sex abuse rings which the world is now fretting about could never have operated. The media have not mentioned a word. Of course not, no-one wants to die slowly and painfully or find that they ‘cannot be revived’ after a heart attack, like poor Michael Carr, the MP for Bootle, who took on both the paedophiles’ friends as well as Militant (see post ‘News From Sicily’). No wonder Mr Carr lasted only just over 50 days as the MP for the constituency which included Walton Hospital, which was run by Militant.

When I was an undergrad at UCNW in the early 1980s, there was a Chilean girl in the Dept of Plant Biology who was either a PhD student or a post-doc, Catalina. She was a big fan of General Pinochet and was from a family who were connected to his regime. One evening, the BBC screened a programme about the disappeared in Chile and Catalina was furious at the bad PR that resulted. She explained to us that the disappeared were just gypsies and other low-life who didn’t matter anyway, so what did the BBC think they were doing making such a documentary. My mate Anne Vernon was particularly gobsmacked by Catalina’s comments. Three years later the paedophile gang killed Anne. Well she was a witness to what had happened to low-life like me wasn’t she, so we won’t worry about that death…

In the Good Old Days of Pinochet’s regime in Chile and General Galtieri’s regime in Argentina, I remember that in the UK, the left made a great deal of the Brave Priests and Nuns who Resisted those murderous regimes. Which indeed some of them did, not everybody colluded. When Thatch went to war with Galtieri, the right wing press finally began publishing how deeply unpleasant Galtieri’s regime was, although the Tories had previously established diplomatic links with Galtieri. Shortly after Thatch won the General Election, Geoffrey Howe popped over to Argentina and made a speech in which he stated that the British people had recently elected a Gov’t with similar views to the Argentinian junta. (Look this up if you don’t believe me.) After war was declared, the tabloids in the UK suddenly began running articles on Galtieri’s men dropping nuns out of helicopters over the ocean.

Geoffrey Howe had been a barrister based in Wales and he and his wife were close friends of Sir Ronnie Waterhouse. See previous posts for more info on Geoffrey Howe, as well as his deep and meaningful friendship with Ronnie. Both of the Howes concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring, including the branch run by Dafydd et al in north Wales. Lady Elspeth Howe served as Deputy Chairman of the EOC,  1975 -79 and in various other capacities from 1980. She was later made Chair of the  Broadcasting Standards Commission. Elspeth is the daughter of the writer Philip Morton Shand by his fourth wife, Sybil Mary Shand. As such, she is a half-aunt to Camilla, Carlo’s wife, whose father, Bruce Shand, was son of P. Morton Shand by a previous marriage. Elspeth Shand was educated at Wycombe Abbey and the LSE.

Gotcha

 

There was a Catholic priest who worked as a Chaplain to Cardiff University in the 1980s who had been tortured by either Galtieri or Pinochet’s regime, I’m not sure which. I was friends with a Cardiff medical student at the time who was involved with the Catholic Church and she used to tell me that she could not imagine how a priest could be such a wicked man. Clare never actually told me what it was that he was up to, but she really did not like him. Clare told me a lot about the wrongdoing at Cardiff University and in particular the Welsh National School of Medicine and in 1984, she came up to stay with Brown and me on Anglesey. I introduced her to Liz Stables, the Angel at the Student Health Centre at UCNW, because in those days I had no idea what Liz Stables, D.G.E. Wood and co were up to. Liz had a lovely chat with Clare and extracted lots of info. The last time that I saw Clare was when she was working as a house officer in Cardiff in 1987. She told me that things were very, very grim. I never heard from Clare again. She is now a consultant surgeon and the last I heard she was working in Herefordshire.

I have been told that the Gang made it clear to Clare that she had better stop listening to what I and others were telling her was going on in north Wales.

I imagine that the horrible priest in the Catholic Chaplaincy in Cardiff was concealing exactly the same sort of serious crime that Clare ended up concealing along with the rest of her colleagues.

Before Clare cut me off, she told me that all Cardiff students were being told by the older students and junior doctors not to take a job in north Wales under any circumstances…

 

The other people Who Were Known To Have Resisted the fascist regimes in Argentina and Chile were of course Top Doctors. It was a standing joke that in the late 1970s the liberal elite in London were employing Top Doctors from Argentina as cleaners. Some of those Top Docs-turned-cleaners gave interviews about how the regimes hated Doctors because Doctors Helped People. The regimes really did hate the Top Docs who stood up to them and many Top Docs did flee the country. But there were plenty of Top Docs who did exactly what Galtieri and Pinochet told them to. Top Docs tortured people to death particularly effectively because they had the knowledge to do that, they delivered the babies of opponents of the regimes – usually murdering the mother and father in the process or shortly afterwards – and they stole those babies and handed them over to ‘suitable parents’, who supported the regime which had murdered the birth parents and occasionally had been involved in the murder of their adopted baby’s parents themselves.

One Argentinian Top Doc who went to London to start a new life was Dame Julia Polak. Polak worked among the fraudsters and criminals at Royal Postgraduate Medical School/Hammersmith Hospital when I was doing my MSc there and I was told by the seriously pissed off wife of an honest member of staff that Polak was the worst of the lot. Dame Julia later made medical history herself by undergoing a heart-lung transplant, surviving longer than nearly anyone else who had undergone such a procedure had and then Discovered A Cure for her own condition! These miracles were carried out at Harefield in collaboration with Sir Magdi Yacoub. Please see post ‘I Don’t Believe It’ for the many holes in Julia and Magdi’s story and for the reasons why I think that it was all another massive research fraud.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful!

Your life in their hands!

When Clare Cheek was a student at Cardiff, the medical students were particularly entertained by Dr Roy Mottram, a big strapping physiology lecturer who was Cardiff’s celebrity transvestite. Roy Mottram featured in TV documentaries and in the press and the students would scream with laughter at the film footage of Dr Mottram going shopping in his dress. I didn’t have a problem with Dr Mottram being a transvestite at all, but I later found out that Dr Mottram was a leading light in the Beaumont Society, which as well as campaigning for tolerance of transvestites, was also involved with some very much more worrying people with links to Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘The Paedophiles’ Friends Of Cardiff North’).

Totally harmless and a matter of choice:

Rhodri’s wife Julie Morgan, Labour MP for Cardiff North, 1997-10 and AM for Cardiff North since 2011, is the former Assistant Director of Barnardo’s and a former social worker in Barry. Barnardo’s employees were involved in the paedophile gangs of the last thirty years, including Dafydd’s gang. A couple of days ago, the BBC reported that an investigation into historical abuse in Barry revealed that in the 1980s, children attended a sex party held on a boat at which police officers were present.

The police are explaining to the world that the historical investigations are difficult because the Victims won’t come forward because they’ve been involved in petty crime. Well some in north Wales were because they sold drugs for Dafydd’s gang, but the main reason why they won’t ‘come forward’ is that for years, they complained and complained and complained. The police shouted at them, swore at them, told them to get out of the station or they’d arrest them and if the victims still persisted, they were indeed arrested themselves. Many of the police officers who did that are still serving. The Top Docs and social workers who fitted the victims and witnesses up and who in some cases assaulted them are also still working, many in very senior positions. Why would any of the witnesses ever, ever co-operate with those bastards?

The man who phoned Dafydd pretending to be from the Spanish Embassy certainly had fun with Dafydd and on one occasion he entertained the Hergest Unit patients by ringing Dafydd up, told Dafydd to get ready for his arrival and to ‘answer the door wearing your baby doll nightie and nae panties’ (the caller was supposed to be a gay Scotsman who had the hots for Dafydd). It was me who subsequently received a visit from the police and I was told that if there was one more call to Dafydd I’d be arrested.

North Wales Police: It wasn’t me who made those calls and you knew it, although I did certainly enjoy them. However, may I suggest that the person who did make the calls, who provided much light relief for the victims of a man who was running a trafficking gang with whom you colluded every inch of the way, is given a Good Citizen Award of the sort that David Blunkett gave to the horrible old cow in Cwm-y-Glo who intimidated the local mental health patients, Dee Edwards. The Dee Edwards who was subsequently given an MBE for her charidee work. By which time one of her relatives had been banged up for raping a six year old girl, but we didn’t hear much about that and I was told by a Top Doctor and his lady wife to keep quiet about it.

 

When I was working at Bangor University, I was told about a Wimmin’s Labour Party event being held at Llandudno. It was organised by one Julie Morgan who had invited her Big Mate, Harriet Harman. The Harriet who’s dad was a Harley Street Top Doctor. See previous posts for the gen on Dr John Harman and his network, as well as for the gen on Harriet and her network…

Being utterly hopeless, Harriet couldn’t do the Gov’t jobs to which she was appointed, so she was given an adviser who did them for her – Ed Miliband. The Ed who’s Uncle Harry was a Top Doc at Guy’s and Tommy’s, working alongside the Top Docs there who were colluding with Dafydd and the gang.

This man studied at Tommy’s and worked as a Top Doc there alongside the notoriously mad and dangerous William Sargant, as well as those colluding with Dafydd and the gang in north Wales until he was elected to the Commons in 1966; he now clutters up the Lords and was a personal friend of some of the Top Docs facilitating the trafficking ring in north Wales:

Hugh Lanning, whom Barry Reamsbottom tried to crowbar into the job as General Secretary of the PCS in preference to Mark Serwotka, was the Deputy General Secretary of the PCS until May 2013. Lanning has been the Chairman of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign since 2009, and in 2013 was named a Vice Chair of the group Unite Against Fascism (UAF).

In 2015, Hugh stood as the Labour candidate for the Canterbury and Whitstable constituency, in Kent.

Lanning has played a major role in persuading trade unions in Britain to declare solidarity with the Palestinians and to support the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement. During his tenure at PCS, Lanning was active in the effort to keep people he considered ‘fascists’ or ‘racists’ out of the union and out of union workplaces. Lanning has given speeches at many labour and anti-racism rallies and has been a frequent contributor to the ‘Morning Star’.

Hugh Lanning worked for the civil service trade unions for over 30 years, starting with the Civil Service Union and all the subsequent merged unions. As Deputy Chairman of PCS, he served on the National Trade Union Committee and was responsible for negotiations with the Cabinet Office on jobs, pensions and personnel management issues.

Lanning spoke at an April 2006 “rally against racism and fascism” in Trafalgar Square organized by the National Assembly against Racism. At Voices for Lebanon and Palestine rally in Trafalgar Square in July 2006, organized by PSC with the help of CND, Stop the War Coalition, British Muslim Initiative, Lebanese Muslin League, Lebanese Welfare Community and Friends of Al-Aqsa, Lanning spoke alongside actor Corin Redgrave and others, saying that ‘the British trade union movement has a good record on many international issues, but not on Palestine.’

Corin Redgrave was a lifelong activist in leftist politics. With his elder sister Vanessa, he was a prominent member of the Workers’ Revolutionary Party (WRP). After the collapse of the WRP, Corin was involved with the Marxist Party, which the two siblings founded. Although I’m not sure which was the Judean Peoples’ Front and which was the Peoples’ Front of Judea.

  • The Anti-Trump hysteria; what I think it means.

 

Lanning spoke at an evening event sponsored by the SWP-led Love Music Hate Racism and Unite Against Fascism at the Trades Union Congress in Brighton on 9 September 2007. At the PCS annual conference in May 2008, ‘an executive motion demanding justice for Palestine won overwhelming support,’ reported the ‘Morning Star’. Lanning stated that ‘There is no free Palestine – it doesn’t exist. The occupation is all there is and it is up to us to help a free Palestine become a reality.’ He rejected arguments that Israel was at war. ‘Israel will not gain security without peace, certainly not by building walls, and there is only one way that Israel will have peace and that’s with a free and independent Palestine.’

Lanning told attendees of the Progressive London conference in February 2010 that the “seismic” change that had resulted in widespread trade-union support for the Palestinian cause must be expanded into a mass movement.

Lanning went to Liverpool in May 2010 to address workers who were striking to protest changes in public-sector pensions.

In May 2010, at the annual Nakba rally outside 10 Downing Street, organized by Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, Stop the War Campaign, CND and the British Muslim Initiative, Lanning said: “We want to hold this new government to account on international law and we want the Lib Dems to fulfil the pledges they made to us before the election on fighting for the human rights of Palestinians.”

At the time, the demands for a new investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal were becoming louder and louder. Hugh Lanning and the other dogs that didn’t bark didn’t hear them.

Lanning addressed anti-Government protesters in York in February 2011 as part of a local campaign against budget cuts. During a U.S. visit in 2011, Lanning was the keynote speaker at the ninth annual convention of Al-Awda, an organization allegedly linked to pro-terrorist groups. His speech was entitled “The Role of Trade Unions and Solidarity Campaigns in the Struggle for the Liberation of Palestine.”

Meanwhile, in north Wales – you get the picture…

Hugh Lanning spoke at the annual rally outside 10 Downing Street in May 2011, telling the audience that “The Arab Spring brings us hope but also means real challenge to ensure UK government changes its policy. We must keep the pressure up until there is a free and independent Palestine.”

At a conference in June 2011, Lanning called for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian problem. In an October 2011 article for the Morning Star, Hugh Lanning promoted the forthcoming Celebrate Diversity, Defence Multiculturalism conference, praised British diversity, deplored “the growth of Islamophobia,” and explained that PCS “sees its role to defend [the] anti-fascist tradition by teaming up with others in the trade union movement to voice the alternatives to the rise of the extreme right.” PCS was campaigning, he explained, “to have fascists banned from the Civil Service’, but not criminals who had colluded with a paedophile gang who murdered witnesses.

On 15 October 2011, Lanning spoke at the Unite Against Fascism-sponsored One Society Many Cultures national convention, a “one-day national convention bringing together a broad alliance celebrating diversity, rejecting Islamophobia and fascism.” An October 2011 article by Lanning in the Morning Star described the British media coverage of the Israel-Palestinian conflict as unbalanced. “Solidarity with Palestine,” Lanning wrote, “is born and bred on anti-racist principles, of distaste for a people being oppressed by virtue of their race, of the dishonour that is done to those who hold dear the values of their religions.”

 

On 29 October 2011, Jimmy Savile turned his toes up. His body lay in state in the Queen’s Hotel Leeds and he then had a lovely funeral. Crowds lined the street a la Princess Di. Everyone was reminded of what a lovely old boy he was and how much work he did for charidee. My friends and I were busy phoning each other, delighted that the man whom we knew was a sex offender had snuffed it at last.

‘We didn’t know’.

I was told by two different medical researchers in 1988 that Savile was a child molester. I was told in 1989 by the relative of someone who worked in Stoke Mandeville that everyone hated Savile, he was a ‘twat’. I was told in 2000 by a former NHS Angel who had worked in Wales that millions of the pounds raised by Savile for Stoke Mandeville had, at Savile’s insistence, been spent on The Jimmy Savile Dining Room. This person also told me that Savile was loathed by staff at Stoke Mandeville.

I knew that in the 1980s and 90s, Dafydd used to hold ‘clinics’ at the Queen’s Hotel in Leeds. I have never been to the Queen’s Hotel in Leeds but I’m wondering what sort of hotel is used to display the corpses of sex offenders and doubles up as a ‘clinic’ held by Dafydd.

Dafydd was famed for his ‘sex therapy’ clinics. ‘Dr DA’ – as he demanded to be called and demanded that I should call him that as well (can readers guess what my response was?) – held clinics across the UK. His usual mode of transport was his much boasted about Mercedes or his gold coloured Range Rover (Savile probably went one better with that pink Rolls Royce that he bored everybody with), but at one point Dafydd had himself transferred between clinics by helicopter. Not his NHS clinics of course. Dafydd didn’t usually bother to show up for those.

‘I’m a Private Patient of Dr DA’s, I’m here for my appointment.’

‘Oh, the clinic’s through here, do come in.’

In a January 2012 op-ed, Lanning accused the Israeli Supreme Court of racism after it upheld a law denying Israeli citizenship spouses of Israeli citizens who are Palestinians from the West Bank or Gaza Strip or from designated “enemy states.” As a result, Hugh Lanning identified two firms, Ahava and Veolia, to be boycotted.

Lanning spoke at the Unite Against Fascism Conference on 28 February 2012. “If history has taught us anything, it’s never to turn our back on the threat posed by fascism,” Lanning told Labour Research in April 2012. “Trade unionists must never de-prioritise the anti-fascist struggle… There is never a time for trade unionists to be silent, or lower their voices on this issue.”

On 12 May 2012, Lanning addressed about 500 demonstrators who had gathered outside 10 Downing Street to commemorate the anniversary of the Nakba. Lanning, who said he had just returned from Palestine, said that “every day in Palestine is Nakba Day. The Palestinians are being encircled, imprisoned, colonised, driven off their land.” He accused Israel of “arresting people with no charge, no trial and no justice” and said that “If this was happening anywhere else on this planet it would be on the front page of every newspaper and on the daily news night after night. But it is being ignored because it is happening to the Palestinians.”

Lanning was a speaker in September 2012 at the Love Music Hate Racism 10th Anniversary Event.

Lanning addressed meetings held at the Labour Party conference in Manchester in October 2012 by Palestinian Solidarity Campaign and Unite Against Fascism.

After the British Gov’t sought “to cut the amount of time civil servants can spend on union activity,” Lanning said in a letter to the Cabinet Office it was “unacceptable” that civil servants and their union representatives should be “left to learn of their employer’s decision, which has personal implications for some of them, through national newspapers and statements at the Conservative party conference.” He described the policy shift as “a political attack on the democratic processes of trade unions” and warned that “this is going to fundamentally rupture industrial relations in the civil service….We will be asking Acas to intervene on this issue as well as challenging your decisions in the courts….The independence of the civil service from political pressure and interference in its role as an employer is a dangerous line to cross.’”

It must have been in 2010 that a law graduate from Bangor University made a claim against The Management Centre, a private company owned by Bangor University, for disability discrimination, when he was working at The Management Centre. He was an epileptic and he went into work one day, was told that his colleagues want to show him something, so he went into a room as invited and was treated to a video playing footage of someone having a grand mal seizure, while his colleagues screamed with laughter and said ‘that’s you that is’. He raised a complaint with Lyn Meadows, the HR Director of Bangor University. Meadows tried to cuddle him and told him that there was no harm done. This man, a former soldier, walked out of the room and took advice from elsewhere. He was advised to contact Acas, which he did. Lyn Meadows rang him up at home, in the evening, having accessed his file with personal details and told him that he was not to speak about this case to anyone. He laughed and hung up. Not long afterwards, he was offered a job as a lecturer in law at Bangor University in return for dropping his case. The person who made this offer was Aled Griffiths, aka the Buffet Slayer, who’s sister Gwenan Carrington was the Director of Gwynedd Social Services, who’s wife Joanna was Director of Conwy Social Services and who’s brother Huw was a hopelessly incompetent solicitor who in the 1980s and 90s had sat in the courts of north Wales and watched as I and other targets of the gang were fitted up. See previous posts for more info on the Buffet Slayer and his Mafia. The law graduate refused to engage with the Slayer regarding this bribery attempt.

Within a few days of this generous offer, I was in The Management Centre when I stumbled upon a little conference consisting of Lyn Meadows, the Slayer and Professor Colyn Gardner, the manager of The Management Centre. By that time The Management Centre was known to be deeply in debt and there had been many informal complaints about the work-place bullying there. Colyn subsequently departed after rumours of a stand-up row between him and the newly appointed VC, Professor John Hughes. See previous posts for more Colyn laffs and his previous before he ever got near Bangor.

Acas subsequently advised the law graduate to accept the (low) compensation offered, on the grounds that although they accepted that a great of unacceptable behaviour had occurred, they ‘knew’ that the witnesses to the events at The Management Centre were going to lie on oath because ‘they are frightened of Lyn Meadows and Colyn’.

Dafydd Wigley at the time was on the Board of The Management Centre. Elfed Roberts, the former North Wales Police senior officer who was kicked out of the police for corruption by Chief Constable Richard Brunstrom when Mr Brunstrom arrived and tried to clean up that endemically corrupt force, was one of those involved with The Management Centre. Elfed was subsequently appointed as Chair of the North West Wales NHS Trust and he thus automatically was given a seat on the Council of Bangor University. While in those roles, Elfed had me arrested three times. On one occasion for having pink hair and calling his car a penismobile; on another for ‘making hoax calls’ when I had rung an ambulance in an emergency; and on another for sending ‘reams and reams’ of e mails to the Trust. I was trying to pursue my very serious complaints which were simply being ignored. When the Health Minister Edwina Hart finally dissolved the North West Wales NHS Trust because even the Welsh Gov’t could stomach the scandal and embarrassment no longer, Elfed was appointed to the Board of the Welsh Ambulance Trust, although I and other witnesses had given Edwina enough documentary evidence for Elfed himself to have been arrested. Elfed remained on the University Council and was appointed Chair of the Fair Practice Committee.

Many moons ago, Elfed was the Sgt at Llangefni Police Station and was known to be corrupt then. Dafydd lives about three miles outside of Llangefni and was mates with them all in that station.

Lyn Meadows previously worked as a senior manager for the Welsh Ambulance Trust and had served on the Board of an NHS Trust on the Wirral, during which time she was named in Hansard and on Frank Field’s blog as having colluded with three Top Doctors who defrauded the Trust. There were no prosecutions. See previous posts.

Lyn Meadow subsequently became a member of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

The law graduate who became embroiled in all this was a friend of mine, was known to be a friend of mine and had been for quite some time. He knew what had happened to me at the hands of Dafydd et al.

Now here’s a strange thing. After my friend walked out of the job at the Management Centre, he was a few weeks later offered a job as an employment lawyer in a firm in Menai Bridge, which certainly gave us a good laugh. He never discussed his case against the Management Centre with his employers. Shortly after Acas advised him to settle, he was made redundant from the company in Menai Bridge. He was the only lawyer who was made redundant.

 

  • Strange but true

 

The Buffet Slayer grew up on Anglesey – his father was a Minister of religion there – and lives in the next village along from Menai Bridge.

 

Once Lyn Meadows was appointed as HR Director at Bangor University, there was a whole spate of cases of work-place bullying and unfair dismissals of the more junior staff, cases which People’s Champ Eileen Tilley failed to take up. But then Tilley was friends with Meadows and I was told that a deal had been done between them, in the efforts for Tilley to achieve her aspiration of bagging a seat on the National Executive of UCU.

The law graduate who worked in The Management Centre was not the only person whom I had been friendly with who was unfairly dismissed by Meadows. When I was doing my PhD I shared an open plan office with a number of other people, many of whom knew what was happening to me at the hands of the paedophile gang and their friends, because it was all becoming very, very public. People close to me – like the law graduate and some of those in our office – saw some of the highly incriminating documents which my lawyers had by then begun to obtain. They were well aware of just how serious the wrongdoing was. One of those who knew what had gone on and what was continuing to go on was running a project that wasn’t an academic one, but was funded by Gwynedd County Council and was aimed at promoting entrepreneurship in Gwynedd. Unlike many who bang on about ‘entrepreneurship’, this young woman came from a business family herself, helped run the business and knew how to develop and sustain a successful business. Gwynedd County Council claimed to be desperate to promote SME business development. My colleague’s project was really, really successful. Even Gwynedd County Council had to admit that it was really successful.

Previous posts have described how my PhD supervisor and his wife, who was also an academic at Bangor, were both forced out of their jobs as a Punishment Beating by Professor Fergus Lowe, after my PhD supervisor accepted me as a student. My supervisor received the standard poisonous call from someone in the mental health services – I don’t know who – and was told that he had just accepted a Dangerous Nutter as a postgrad. He took the view that this was an outrageous thing for someone to be doing and refused to engage with the caller. He didn’t tell me about this until after I’d finished my PhD. What that caller didn’t know is that my supervisor and his wife had previously supported other people whom the gang had targeted and knew how some of the gang conducted themselves.

Fungus, in collaboration with Prof Lew Hardy, Professor Colin Baker (who’s wife worked at Ysbyty Gwynedd) and Professor Tom Corns (who’s wife had recently retired as a social worker from Conwy Social Services and who’s son was a Top Doctor) worked long and hard to force my supervisor and his wife out of their jobs. Eventually they could bear the constant harassment no more and they took early retirement. My supervisor was then offered a job at Oxford and his wife took up a job as an Educational Consultant for the Trinidadian Gov’t. Which entertained other victims of Fungus and Corns. The Curse Of Tom Corns – anyone who suffers from the Curse will find that riches and success will come their way…

My supervisor had not only read some of my incriminating documents, but he made a witness statement regarding the gang and their associates, as at a later date did his wife.

When my PhD supervisor retired from Bangor, as far as he could he arranged follow up positions for everyone. However there was a period of a few weeks before people had relocated, when they were all still sharing the old office, but our boss was no longer there. It was during this time that John McTernan’s brother-in-law, who had recently left his job at Bangor University, turned up at the office and stole my computer. The young woman who was running the entrepreneurship project was alone in the office at the time and witnessed him removing it. She challenged him and he told her that our former supervisor had given him permission do this. She didn’t believe him, so after he had left with the haul, she rang the university authorities and reported the matter.

My computer was recovered, although James Dawson, the thieving relative of Blair’s right hand man, was not prosecuted. Instead, the Head of the School of Education, Janet Pritchard, told the world that my supervisor had put Dawson up to this theft and that he had given James Dawson the code to the building’s lock. No he hadn’t. The code had never been changed, because Janet et al made it quite clear that they were glad to see the back of John and his wife and we could all just fuck off out of it. No-one sorted the office out, no-one even went over there. It was just left open to all comers. The young woman who was running the entrepreneurship project had been receiving more and grief from those at Gwynedd County Council who were ‘supporting’ it and was left in tears by their conduct on a number of occasions. Gwynedd then told the University that they were terminating the funding for the project.

Because my former colleague had by now been employed by the University for a certain length of time, they were legally not allowed to terminate her contract, although Lyn Meadows did try that. The young woman’s father’s lawyer briefed her as to her rights – there wasn’t any point her consulting Tilley and UCU – and the University admitted that they had an obligation to continue to employ her. She was rehoused in another part of the School of Education in an inhospitable inappropriate office, alone. No-one ever went in to see her or even discussed her work with her. A few months later she became pregnant. Janet Pritchard actually responded to the news with ‘oh God, we’ll have to pay you maternity leave now’. Within weeks, my former colleague’s contract had been terminated. She subsequently sued the University for unfair dismissal and won.

After Gwynedd County Council terminated the funding for the entrepreneurship project, Iwan Trefor Jones, the senior member of Gwynedd staff responsible for overseeing the work, was at the centre of a scandal in which he had, in his capacity as a Gwynedd CC employee, handed a cheque for £20k over to a business which collapsed weeks later. Iwan Trefor was a mate of the businessmen concerned and no-one was able to explain where the money had gone. Iwan Trefor simply subsequently rose ever higher with Gwynedd CC (see post ‘Sleeping With The Fishes’).

The other person responsible with Iwan Trevor for overseeing the entrepreneurship project was a man called Dewi, who ran the Post Office and shop in Penrhyndeudraeth. Some months later Dewi was arrested for embezzling thousands from the PO. He went to prison.

My former colleague’s project was called ‘Get On In Gwynedd’. Well if you’re a member of, or an accessory to, a paedophile gang or a thief or a conman, your prospects are great.

 

Anyone now like to make a public apology to Drs John and Della Fazey, for the mountain of crap that was thrown at them for daring to support me? Or the other people who were sacked from their jobs because they had sight of my documents and unlike so many others, didn’t thrash out a comfortable deal with the paedophiles’ friends in return for their silence?

 

So what happened to the career of James Dawson, John McTernan’s brother-in-law, who made off with my computer? Well Dawson certainly fell on his feet. After leaving Bangor under a very big cloud indeed, BEFORE he nicked my computer that was – I was told that the cloud involved a serious complaint about James by a female student – James was appointed to the senior management team of Glyndwr University, an institution peopled by even more paedophiles’ friends than Bangor University (see post ‘A Vampire At Glyndwr University!’). James had never been a senior manager of anything before and had spent quite a long time doing nothing very much after that business with my computer, so exactly why he was deemed suitable for a job helping to run Glyndwr University I do not know.

Regarding Gwynedd County Council wrecking people’s careers, one didn’t have to work for or be funded by Gwynedd County Council for that to happen. There is a farmer in the Ogwen Valley who some years ago was mercilessly harassed by a the combined forces of Gwynedd County Council and the Snowdonia National Park until he virtually lost his business. He is a local man who grew up in Bethesda and from what I saw, his life bore all the signs of someone under serious attack by the paedophiles’ friends. I don’t know what he did to piss them off though. How did I get to know him? He is a friend of my former PhD supervisor and his wife, who also farm in the Ogwen Valley.

‘We’re the paedophiles’ friends and you can’t get us’.

 

While Lyn Meadows and Fungus ran riot at Bangor University, Eileen Tilley revelled when the THES listed Bangor as being one of the worst universities in the UK for workplace bullying. Tilley had a truly wonderful time telling everyone that it said all that needed to be said about the VC. While there was a bullying problem at Bangor, it was concentrated very obviously in only a few Depts: Psychology; Healthcare Sciences; Education; The Business School; Theology.

What did these Depts have in common? They all hosted a heavy load of paedophiles’ friends. Not only did Tilley and UCU collude with what was happening, but Tilley knew as well as I did that the problem could not have been anything to do with the VC. Because the cases which were used to identify Bangor as a ‘bullying university’ were collected when the VC had taken an extended period of compassionate leave, while his wife was seriously ill and then died. At the hands of the paedophile gang’s associates at the Walton Centre in Liverpool. It was Fungus who was running the University throughout the outrages, not the VC. It was also Fungus who appointed Lyn Meadows, the toxic cow of a former NHS senior manager and Fungus knew exactly what he was going to get when he did that. He got what he and Eileen Tilley wanted – a paedophiles’ friend of the highest order who was going to cause chaos and blame it all on everyone else. Particularly the VC who had dared challenge a fucking paedophile gang, for which his wife paid with her life.

Perhaps this man would like to tell us all why his adviser’s brother-in-law made off with a PhD student’s ancient, third-hand computer, worth about 50p, in 2005:

Hugh Lanning spoke at an anti-EDL event in Walthamstow in October 2012 that was organized by the groups We Are Waltham Forest and Unite Against Fascism and attended by more than 1,000 people. Lanning said: “The EDL wanted to come to Walthamstow to intimidate Muslim and other communities including trade unionists. They have been given a resounding no. Let’s celebrate this victory together and united.”

By 2012, Operation Pallial re-opened the investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. Tony Francis killed himself. I was threatened with a gun, after another witness was threatened with a gun and I fled north Wales, for the first time, although I did return to live there again.

 

Hugh Lanning insisted in a 2013 speech that “Israel is ALWAYS the aggressor” and that Israel had banned 180 life saving medicines from Gazan hospitals “because they might save lives.” In the same speech he announced a Palestinian Solidarity Campaign conference on 13 April that would involve “an open dialogue with the people of Gaza and their leaders” – in other words, Hamas.

Lanning spoke at a March 2013 conference in London held by the Morning Star, “to discuss the crisis of political representation in parliament” and consider the possibility of forming a new working-class party. The Morning Star reported on 14 April 2013 that Lanning had told a conference on the previous Saturday “that activists must urge the government to end Israel’s ability to breach international law with ‘impunity.” Lanning was quoted as saying that “The policy of governments including our own not to talk to the legitimate representatives of Palestinians is wrong and short sighted.”

Lanning resigned from his position with the PCS in May 2013.

Lanning met with senior BBC executives in June 2013 to discuss BBC coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which Lanning felt was too Israel-friendly. The Israeli National News reported that the BBC had “come under fire” for having held “consultations” with Lanning, who was identified as “a senior member of…an anti-Israel group which openly supports Hamas, Hezbullah and other extremist organisations.”

Should I have demanded a meeting with BBC executives to discuss their lack of coverage of the crimes of Dafydd or indeed until he was dead and buried, Jimmy Savile?

I haven’t ever demanded a meeting with BBC executives, but being the Mary Whitehouse that I am, I have raised concerns with the BBC on a few occasions. I was one of many who complained about the appalling interview in April 1991 during which the stupid old git Terry Wogan baited David Icke, because Wogan obviously thought that David Icke was psychotic. Did Wogan ever insult the assortment of offensive old idiots, some of whom were later revealed to be sex offenders, with whom he appeared on TV? Of course not. Wogan went for David Icke’s jugular and continued writing his Torygraph column.

When Wogan had a go at David Icke in 1991, stressing to him that everyone thought that he was nuts and were laughing at him, the second attempt by Tony and Sadie Francis to have me imprisoned for being a Dangerous Nutter had just failed. A number of the things that Wogan said to David Icke on TV were word for word some of those that Dafydd and members of the gang had yelled at me not so long before. Previous posts have detailed just some of Dafydd’s many connections to the BBC.

For many years, Jimmy Savile took part in ‘Children In Need’, until Sir Roger Jones, the then BBC Governor for Wales banned him, because Sir Roger found Savile’s conduct so ‘creepy’.

So what was wrong with the rest of them at the BBC?

  • Esther Rantzen calls for Terry Wogan statue on the roof of ...
  • ESTHER RANTZEN - INVITED KIDS TO SEX PARTIES.BEN FELLOWS ...

 

‘We didn’t know.’

Esther knew about Dafydd because in 1988 I wrote and told her what he was doing.

 

Years later I raised my concerns with the BBC over a drama which gave a highly inaccurate and misleading picture of ‘mental health care’ for young women – they were ‘disturbed girls’ who were in a Denbigh-like institution but it was in really good condition with nice furniture and lovely gardens, long after all the asylums had closed down and the girls were being tended to by intelligent and caring psychoanalysts, all on the NHS. There was a serial killer on the loose in the local area and of course everyone knew it was one of those girls wot dun it. I wrote to BBC Wales and listed the numerous factual errors in the drama – I don’t know who their medical consultant was but they obviously weren’t very competent – and also explained that the NHS does not provide such facilities for such patients, anywhere in the UK. I received an arsey letter from a Karl Davies, who failed to answer any of my points.

I later found out that Karl Davies was a Plaid activist and had stood for Plaid unsuccessfully in one General Election for a north Wales constituency . In 2001, Karl Davies was Plaid’s Chief Executive.

Being involved with Plaid in north Wales, Karl will have known about Dafydd’s gang and all those folk in Plaid who colluded with them. In 2014, Karl Davies appeared on a website entitled ‘All About Trans’, after Karl had ‘had coffee with a group of trans volunteers’.

How about a coffee morning with the theme ‘All About The Paedophiles’ then Karl?

Here’s Karl, looking dapper:

My other letter to the BBC was challenging their decision to broadcast a party political broadcast on behalf of the BNP. I can accept that the BNP, as a party fielding candidates, have the right to a party political broadcast along with the other parties; my point was that the BNP should not have been allowed to tell lies about immigrants in their broadcast. Karl wrote back effectively telling me to piss off, we’re the BBC and we can do what we want.

‘We’re the paedophiles’ friends and you can’t get us.’

 

Hugh Lanning was a speaker at Unite Against Fascism’s national conference in March 2013. Andrew Gilligan, in a June 2013 article in the Torygraph, noted Lanning’s position with Unite Against Fascism and recounted that UAF members had climbed on London’s main war memorial, “squashing…flowers that mourners had placed there, then trying to remove half of them altogether and ‘jeering’ other visitors as they paid their respects.”

In March 2017, days after the Knesset passed Amendment No. 27 to the Entry Into Israel Law, which allowed known supporters of the BDS movement to be banned from entering Israel, Hugh Lanning became the first British national to be refused entry to Israel under this law. After landing at Ben Gurion Airport, Lanning was detained and refused entry. He claimed he was interrogated for eight hours. He was subsequently put on a flight back to the UK and informed that he would need to apply for permission to enter Israel in the future.

If Hugh Lanning is this vexed about the activities of Israel, one wonders why he has not maxed out on Professor Stuart Stanton, who worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School alongside Professor Oliver Brooke and all the staff there who were colluding and concealing organised child abuse. Stanton is a visiting Professor at Hadassah Hospital (Jerusalem) where he travels every three months to lecture, see patients and operate. He is a founder member of the South London Israel Forum (SLIF) which meets monthly to hear speakers on Middle East politics and Israel’s achievements in the Arts and Sciences, is also a Trustee for Hadassah UK and a Patron of the British Friends of Hebrew University.

Stanton also appears on the website of the Jewish Medical Association UK. The section entitled ‘Israeli Medical Students’ tells us about the 2011 Israeli Student Attachment programme and that ‘the past four weeks have been incredible. Dr. Alan Naftalin welcomed us with a lovely dinner at his house and took care of all our needs during our stay. In addition, he made sure we learn a lot about medicine and the way it is practised in the UK by arranging meetings with well experienced doctors such as Prof. David Katz, Prof. Stuart Stanton and Dr. Mike Peters of the BMA.’

See post ‘The Cry Of The Lunatic’ for more information on Stuart Stanton.

Surely this is an open goal for Hugh Lanning, particularly as Stanton was in some of the same societies as Greville Janner…

Lanning and Richard Norton-Taylor wrote a 1992 book, ‘A Conflict of Loyalties: GCHQ 1984-1991’, about 14 employees of the UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) who refused to obey a new directive requiring that they resign from their unions. In a review for ‘The Guardian’, Lord Wedderburn called it “a valuable source for those who seek to understand the place of the GCHQ victimisations in the general and continuing assault upon trade union rights in Britain.”

It was GCHQ who listened to our phone calls for years as Dafydd and the gang ran their crime empire and tried to kill us. The security services had Tp Docs surgeries, hospitals, universities etc wired as well. GCHQ heard the lot. No wonder that these unions exerted so much elbow power.

There were of course two high profile cases in the 1980s of civil servants leaking information on the grounds that they had a higher duty to the employers, the Gov’t – the cases of Sarah Tisdall and Clive Ponting. Sarah Tisdall leaked documents in 1983 regarding the date that American cruise missiles would be arriving in Britain. The Editor of ‘The Guardian’, Peter Preston, didn’t fancy going to prison himself, so he fessed up to the authorities as to the source of the leak and Sarah went to prison instead. In July 1984, Clive Ponting leaked documents concerning the sinking of the Belgrano. He stood trial and was acquitted, which came as a surprise to all, he and everyone else expected him to be imprisoned. See previous posts for details of the Tisdall and Ponting cases.

Sarah and Clive did take on a Gov’t that they knew to be corrupt, but neither they, nor anyone else, leaked anything about the very serious crime which was associated with the gangs supplying the Westminster Paedophile Ring. The only dog who did bark was the Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens, who was faced with universal ridicule and hostility.

 

Sheldon was educated at West Leeds High School. So John Sheldon was someone else who grew up in the location of Savile and his gang.

John Sheldon presided over a period of successive public sector trade union mergers during the 1980s and 1990s.

John Sheldon was elected General Secretary of the CSU in 1982, following service as Deputy General Secretary. During this time Sheldon and the CSU were amongst those active in opposing Thatch’s Gov’ts  ban on trade union membership at GCHQ and the subsequent legal challenge in 1984. All those non-barking dogs listening to Dafydd et al…

Sheldon described the government’s £1000 tax compensation for GCHQ workers as “Judas Money”.

The corrupt civil servants who were colluding with Dafydd and associated gangs will have benefited by far more than £1000. When Thatcher’s Gov’t paid the ‘Judas Money’ to the GCHQ workers who left their union, it was argued at the time that all Thatch had done was cream off the civil servants who were capable of being corrupted and for quite modest sums as well, but it is clear that those who stayed in the unions and  colluded with the Top Doctors over the following years were corrupt as well.

 

In 1988 John Sheldon oversaw the subsequent merger with the Society of Civil and Public Servants to form the NUCPS and served as its General Secretary from 1993. When NUCPS merged with the IRSF (Inland Revenue Staff Federation) in 1996 to form the PTC, Sheldon continued as Joint General Secretary along with the IRSF’s Clive Brooke.

The IRSF, in an earlier incarnation, was the National Association of the Taxes Assessing and Collecting Services and the Valuation Office Clerical Association. The future PM Jim Callaghan was its Assistant Secretary from 1936 until World War II.

Clive Brooke, as the man who led the union which in its former days had employed the man who, along with so many others, was concealing the mound of crap which was organised abuse by people in high as well as low places, will have wielded a great deal of political muscle. George Thomas didn’t die until Sept 1997,  Callaghan didn’t die until March 2005 and there will have been a great deal at stake.

The Westminster Paedophile Ring of course involved a number of civil servants, some of them in very senior positions.

 

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe:

Brooke was educated in Thornes House School, Wakefield. From 1964 to 1982, He was Assistant Secretary of the IRSF, 1964-82 – through the duration of Sunny Jim’s premiership; Deputy General Secretary, 1982-88; and General Secretary, 1988-95. In 1996 Brooke became Joint General Secretary of PTC and held this post until 1998. He was member of the General Council of the TUC, 1989-96 and between 1993 and 1996, he was a member of the TUC Executive Committee. Brooke is a member of the PCS, the successor to the civil service union that he led.

Clive became Lord Brooke in August 1997. One month before George Thomas died and after Ronnie Waterhouse had spent a few months listening to former residents of children’s homes in north Wales describe how they were beaten, raped, starved and forced to work in local businesses for no pay. For people like whoever used to run the fish gutting business down near the harbour at Bangor, who enjoyed the free labour of the teenagers from the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor, teenagers who told two people known to me that their social workers would beat them up if they refused to do the job. Ty Newydd was the children’s home in which Alison Taylor worked when she first made allegations that children were being abused. Alison of course was trashed by Nefyn Dodd, the manager of Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor and the man then made responsible for the oversight of all the other Gwynedd Social Services children’s homes.

Nefyn Dodd used to boast to third parties was a good mate of Dafydd’s.

What happened to one of the people who found out what was happening to the boys in Ty Newydd? After he confronted the social workers – and told people that he could not believe that they were social workers, they were just thugs – he told quite a number of people what was happening to the boys. He was subsequently visited by the Drug Squad, fitted up for the possession of class A drugs which were planted on him and his wife, arrested, punched in the face by a senior officer at the police station, held in Risley Remand Centre on further trumped up charges, unlawfully transferred to the North Wales Hospital to the care of Dafydd, where he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and detained there, again unlawfully, for a year. Some years later he became involved with a woman who’s family – unbeknown to him – had links to the gang. He had a baby with her and days after the baby was born was ejected from the family by his partner, assisted by her family. Gwynedd Social Services deemed him to be a risk to his child and he was prevented from ever having access to the child. The child grew up in his mother’s family, which included two sex offenders against children.

The whole of Bethesda knew the details of this and it was openly discussed. Someone who had witnessed it all at close hand was killed by a lorry just before the Waterhouse Inquiry began.

Now then Dafydd, when McDuff arrives – he wants you to answer the door, wearing your baby doll nightie and nae panties…

As your caller noted Dafydd you murdering old bastard, ‘now Dafydd knows what it’s like to be sexually harassed’.

Dafydd does not however know what it is liked to be repeatedly sexually assaulted in his early teens, sold for sex to a variety of celebs/politicians/civil servants and others, end up being murdered by the gang who did this and then have his body strung up, to enable a transparently untruthful verdict of ‘suicide by hanging’ to be returned by the corrupt coroner.

Where else but in Gwynedd could a man who ran a paedophile gang for decades demand that someone who heard one of his victims taking the piss out of him be arrested?

The British Hotel also got themselves a bargain when an Empowered Service User with learning disabilities was forced to wash up the dishes for 30p/hour by her social workers.

 

Clive Brooke sits on the Labour benches. In 1997, as well as bagging a peerage, he became a Trustee of the IPPR, the ‘think-tank’ established by the Windbag which serves as a job creation scheme for the offspring of New Labour big wigs. Brooke has been a Trustee and Council member of Community Service Volunteers (CSV) and is a Trustee of Action on Addiction. Clive Brooke served as a non-executive director of NATS (formerly National Air Traffic Services), 2001-06.

I have only ever known one person who worked for Air Traffic Control and that was Michael Grunwell, a student at Bangor who was friends with my friends in Bangor Bird Group. Michael Grunwell was a wildly enthusiastic twitcher and got a job in Air Traffic Control solely because one of the perks was very cheap air travel, which meant that he could get to exotic locations to go twitching. Michael was friends with Anne whom the gang murdered as well as the people whom I have now been told did deals to keep quiet about what was happening to bag jobs and other goodies. Michael Grunwell has an internet presence, he seems to be living in Shanghai now and has put up many of his birding photos online.

 

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe has been married to Lorna Hopkin Roberts since 1967.

 The General Secretary of the IRSF, 1976-88, who preceded Clive Brooke was Lord Tony Christopher. Christopher was General Secretary while Jim Callaghan was PM, presiding over a deeply unpopular Gov’t with Thatch snapping at its heels and a Labour Party about to implode into civil war. That’s what I call leverage Lord Christopher…

From 1944 to 1948, Christopher served in the RAF and from 1948 to 1957, he worked for the Inland Revenue, leaving to work full-time for the Inland Revenue Staff Federation.

In 1981, Christopher became Director of the TU Fund Managers LTD and in 1983 he was appointed Chairman. In 1983, he was also elected auditor of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions and in 1988, Christopher began working as an Industrial and Public Affairs Consultant.

Christopher worked for paedophiles’ friends NACRO (see previous posts), 1956-98; he was a member of Council from 1956 and from 1973 was Chairman. He was member of the  TUC General Council, 1976-89 and its Chairman in 1988-89. Christopher was Director of the Civil Service Building Society, 1958-87 and Chairman, 1978-87. Lord Christopher was a member of the Inner London Probation and After-care Committee, 1966-79, of the Tax Reform Committee, 1974-80 and of the Royal Commission on Distribution of Income and Wealth, 1978-79. Christopher was also member of the IBA, 1978-83, of the Council of the Institute of Manpower Studies, 1984-89 and of the ESRC, 1985-88.

Brown was applying for funding from the ESRC during those years, years when Dafydd and the gang were illegally arresting and detaining me, attempting to frame me for serious crime etc. It was known that Thatcher’s Gov’t had ordered the ESRC to severely constrain funding for social science research and instead divert the funding into economic projects which would demonstrate the superiority of monetarism. Lord Christopher would have been happy to oblige.

Between 1983 and 1986, Christopher was Chairman of the Tyre Industry Economic Development Council and between 1985 and 1990 he was Vice-President of the Building Societies Association. In 1987 and 1988, Tony Christopher was Director of the Birmingham Midshires Building Society. Then Christopher really arrived – he was a member of the GMC, 1989-94, when they failed to take action against Dafydd  et al during those years of Peak Paedophilia, Savile running Broadmoor etc. Christopher was a member of the Audit Commission, 1989-95 and of the Broadcasting Complaints Commission, 1989-97.

Lord Christopher was a Trustee of the Commonwealth Trades Union Council Charitable Trust, 1985 -89 and of the Save the Children Fund, 1985-90. He was on board with the Windbag’s baby, the IPPR, for which he was a Trustee, 1989 -94 and Treasurer, 1990-94. Since 1981, Christopher was also appointed a Trustee of the Trades Union Trust Charitable Trust in 1981 and of the Douglas Houghton Memorial Trust in 1998. Douglas Houghton did many a favour for Dafydd and his criminal associates himself (see previous posts).

Tony Christopher was appointed a Fellow of the RSA in 1989, which has provided a home for many a paedophiles’ friend. On 30 July 1998, after Ronnie Waterhouse had heard the witness accounts of what the gangsters whom Lord Christopher had spent decades colluding with had done to kids in north Wales and then denounced them all as lying gits in pursuit of money – not like Ronnie and Tony Christopher! – Christopher was created a life peer. He took the Labour whip. Bless.

 

John Sheldon served on the General Council of the TUC, 1992-98. Which spanned the years of the investigations into the abuse of kids in care in north Wales and the first year of the Waterhouse Inquiry.

In yet another merger, in 1998, PTC joined with the CPSA to form the PCS. Sheldon continued as Joint General Secretary of PCS, alongside the CPSA’s Reamsbottom. Sheldon’s right to continue to hold the position of General Secretary without election for more than five years was challenged under section 55 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, but the complaint was dismissed. Sheldon retired on his due date 31 July 2000, leaving Reamsbottom as sole General Secretary. That year, the year that the Waterhouse Report was published, Sheldon was awarded the OBE for his service to trades unionism.

Following retirement, Sheldon remained active in trade union affairs, and chaired the Civil Service Appeals Panel. In 2005, Sheldon was invited to lead several independent internal trade unions investigations on behalf of PCS, the FBU and ASLEF. The FBU formerly hosted Ann Jones, the Labour AM for the Vale of Clwyd, who grew up among the Dafydd’s gang and does everything possible to assist them. Ann continues her fine work by refusing to say a word about the genocidal NHS in north Wales but lavishing praise on it when yet another scandal or avoidable death hits the headlines.

 

More recently, John Sheldon attended a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the GCHQ campaign.

 

When researching this crew who so ably assisted the Top Docs and the trafficking gangs which the Top Docs facilitated while banging on about solidarity with the oppressed, I discovered another treasure of the Labour movement, Ada Maddocks.

Ada Maddocks was born in Felixstowe, grew up in Walthamstow and was educated at Walthamstow County High School before working in a laboratory for the Co-operative Wholesale Society. She became active in the co-operative movement, then began working for the NALGO in 1961. In 1976, Ada assumed lead responsibility for NHS employees in NALGO and remained in that position until 1992. Ada was elected to one of two women-only seats on the General Council of the TUC. She served as President of the TUC in 1990, actively supporting the ambulance workers’ strike. The ambulance workers who unlawfully delivered all those people abducted by a gang of paedophiles to the North Wales Hospital Denbigh in the middle of the night. Ada retired in 1992. Thank God for that. So Ada decided to wave good-bye to NALGO in the middle of the North Wales Police investigation into the possibility of a paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. Once the careers of I and three other witnesses had been safely ruined the previous year. Thanks Ada!

NALGO was one of the unions to which some of those who abused kids in north Wales and elsewhere belonged. In north Wales, a NALGO rep was allowed to retire after it was admitted that he abused kids in his care. The NALGO rep was permitted to begin drawing his pension earlier than usual after a psychiatrist wrote a letter in support of him. I can only wonder whether that psychiatrist was wearing his baby doll nightie and nae panties when he wrote the letter.

NALGO is now part of UNISON.

When Ada the Loyal Abusers’ Friend pegged out in 2007, Dave Prentis, the General Secretary of UNISON, wrote her obituary for ‘The Guardian’. Dave, a paedophiles’ friend who has received much good press what with him being caring and representing so many saints who work in the NHS (see post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’) told us that:

Ada Maddocks….was one of the leading women trade unionists of her day…She served on the TUC general council from 1977 until 1991 and in 1990 became only the fifth woman to hold the office of president. Her time on the TUC coincided both with a growth in the prominence of women in the trade union movement and the unions’ battle against their most formidable woman opponent, Margaret Thatcher.

The bitter ambulance workers’ dispute of 1989-90 occurred during Ada’s year as TUC president and she gave unstinting support to all union members involved. She went to London’s Smithfield market one cold winter’s morning, long before dawn, to win the meat porters’ support for the ambulance workers. They even let her stand on one of their barrows – an honour previously given only to the Queen Mother…

She joined the staff of Nalgo in 1961 as a secretary in the electricity section and moved to the health section in 1966, becoming a negotiating officer. Ten years later, she became the national officer responsible for the health service, and then staff side joint secretary of the general Whitley council. [The Whitley Council was the body which for decades kept the pay of groups of workers in the NHS who were not Top Doctors or managers very low. Angels only received a big pay hike when the Whitley Council was no longer responsible for determining their pay. The Whitley Council was hated by NHS workers. See previous post.] When she joined the TUC, she was one of just two women (the other being Marie Patterson, of the T&G) elected in the seats traditionally reserved for women to ensure that the council was not an all-male club. By the time she left, she was one of 15 women on the 50-member body, and the slogan that “a woman’s place was in her union” was one with which few trade unionists would disagree.

Her many friends and former colleagues remember Ada as a woman whose feet were firmly on the ground – she never let high office affect her judgement or the way she dealt with people. Many junior staff, and especially younger women in Nalgo, benefited from her friendship and encouragement, and went on to gain the promotion she was sure they would get. In 1982 she was awarded an OBE.

In retirement, Ada remained active in her local community. She was the chair of Redbridge Voices of Experience, which helped to produce the report Foundation for Change (2005), a health and social care strategy for older people and their carers in Redbridge and was an active supporter of Age Concern.

I never got to bottom of a mystery in 2001, the year that I qualified as a teacher at Bangor. Redbridge Council absolutely bombarded newly qualified teachers from Bangor with promotional literature, begging us to go and work as teachers for Redbridge Council. They even sent a man up to give interested people a lecture on how great being a teacher in Redbridge was. None of us had even heard of Redbridge; the trainee teachers at Bangor consisted of a proportion of Welsh speakers who wanted to teach in Wales through the medium of Welsh and a wider group of us who weren’t Welsh speaking but who had lived in Wales or done degrees at Bangor. There were only a few stragglers who didn’t have strong links to north Wales. Why on earth was Redbridge targeting newly qualified teachers from Bangor? I asked one of the lecturers at the School of Education why this was and she breezily said ‘oh they’re probably short of teachers there’. Then she went back to sleep again. At that time, the whole of the south east of England was short of teachers, the inner London boroughs were truly desperate. They didn’t all beat a path to one of the Welshest Schools of Education in the UK, to tell rural Welsh teachers that what they really needed was a career in Redbridge.

Like Ada, many of the paedophiles’ friends in north Wales/Cheshire have held senior positions in Age Concern. Including Margaret Hanson, the Vice-Chair of the Betsi Board, who was Chief Executive of Age Concern in North East Wales, at about the time when Redbridge Council were begging Welsh teachers to go and work for them. Margaret is a former children’s social worker who worked in Cheshire and she doubled up as a Cheshire Councillor as well. Margaret is married to David Hanson, the Labour MP for Delyn in north Wales, who was appointed as Blair’s PPS in 2001, in the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part II’).

Ada – yet another Little Woman, who demonstrated that the union movement Cares.

I shall have to add Ada’s name to the list of those upon who’s graves I really must dance.

 

Here are Ada’s mates protesting against The Cuts:

 

A few days ago, the ‘Morning Star’ quoted a veteran of the trade union movement as remembering how he and his mates had opposed Thatch every step of the way, in those dark days in the 1980s. He named 1988 as having been a particularly bad year and listed a whole series of sins of Thatch, which I remembered well. Had anyone blown the whistle on the activities of Sir Peter Morrison and Jimmy Savile, both close friends of Thatcher’s, Thatch would have been dead in the water immediately, along with her Gov’t. But no-one did. Not even Ada and the Caring Wimmin. They were far too busy benefiting from the trafficking gang of which Savile and Morrison were key members.

 

Now for a bit about the man who intends to ensure that the trade union movement speaks for the working classes and for those working in the gig economy.

John Martin McDonnell was appointed the Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer in September 2015. He has been the Labour MP for Hayes and Harlington since 1997. McDonnell has served as Chair of the Socialist Campaign Group in Parliament and the Labour Representation Committee and was the Chair of the Public Services Not Private Profit Group. He is also parliamentary convenor of the Trade Union Co-ordinating Group of eight left wing trade unions representing over half a million workers. McDonnell attempted to stand for the position of Labour Party leader following Blair’s resignation in 2007, but was unable to gain sufficient nominations. He was a candidate for Party leadership again in 2010 following Gordon’s resignation after Labour’s electoral defeat, but withdrew in favour of Diane Abbott. 

John McDonnell was backed in his leadership ambitions by the eccentric Rachel Webb (see post ‘Badlands’).

Alongside Jezza, McDonnell has been seen as a key figure on the left-wing of the party. When Jezza and John achieved eminence, one former Welsh MP observed that ‘two old Trots’ were never going to be able to lead the Labour Party to victory. However, the two old Trots are proving to be highly entertaining.

 

 Born in Liverpool, the old Trot McDonnell moved with his family to East Anglia when he was very young; his father became a bus driver and was a branch secretary of the TGWU.  McDonnell attended Great Yarmouth Grammar School. McDonnell began training to be a Catholic priest, attending St Joseph’s College, Ipswich, a Catholic boarding independent school, then for boys, before deciding against that vocation. The Catholic Church is not receiving the best of publicity at the moment.

Upon leaving education, McDonnell held a series of unskilled jobs. After marrying his first wife, he studied for A-levels at night school at Burnley Technical College and at the age of 23, he moved to Hayes in Greater London, attended Brunel University and completed a bachelor’s degree in government and politics. During this period, McDonnell helped his wife run a small children’s home in Hayes and was active on behalf of his local community and for NUPE.

Like NALGO, NUPE was one of the unions to which many of those involved with the trafficking rings which infiltrated the UK’s children’s homes belonged.

After completing his Master’s in politics and sociology at Birkbeck, University of London, McDonnell became a researcher and official with the  NUM, 1977–78, and later the TUC, 1978–82. From 1985–1987, McDonnell was Head of the Policy Unit at Camden Borough Council, then Chief Executive of the Association of London Authorities, 1987–1995 and the Association of London Government, 1995–1997.

Camden Borough Council was a stronghold of those who later became key figures in New Labour – including Tessa and John Mills. They resolutely ignored the paedophile gang operating on their doorstep. As in north Wales, Camden allowing gangsters to run their NHS and social services left its legacy. In 2004, it was revealed that, out of all areas in England and Wales, only one area had a higher suicide rate for women than north west Wales – Camden. See previous posts for details on the Camden crowd and their mates, some of whom were involved with the Association of London Authorities and the Association of London Government and were therefore still cluttering the place up during the first part of the Waterhouse Inquiry, as Blair looked forward to becoming PM.

Tough On Crime, Tough On The Causes Of Crime!

In 1981, McDonnell was elected to the GLC as the member for Hayes and Harlington. He became the GLC’s Chair of Finance and was Red Ken’s Deputy Leader. In an interview for ‘The Guardian’ McDonnell described his role during this time as being “to translate policies into concrete realities on the ground”. He further discussed his performance by indicating, “I was a fairly hard-nosed administrator. We set in train policies for which we were attacked from all sides but are now accepted as mainstream: large-scale investment in public services; raising the issue of Ireland and arguing for a dialogue for peace; equal opportunities; police accountability. We set up a women’s committee, an ethnic minorities committee”.

Under Red Ken, hundreds of kids from London Boroughs were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. They were being seriously abused and there were complaints about this to the Boroughs which had sent them to north Wales. The trafficking continued. Red Ken knew about this and was one of the signatories to an Early Day Motion in 1992, opposing the closure of Garth Angharad, a hell hole near Dolgellau, which was owned by Paul Hett, a now struck off solicitor who had previously owned schools and children’s homes where children were abused. Even Ronnie Waterhouse had to say a few harsh words about Paul Hett. Garth Angharad functioned as a prison for Dafydd’s gang. See posts ‘More On Those Prisons For Folk Who Dared Complain’ and ‘More On Those Who Signed That Early Day Motion’.

John McDonnell knew that those kids from London were being sent to north Wales. Furthermore, the ‘placements’ in the children’s homes run by Dafydd’s gang did not come cheap. The local authorities were paying substantial sums of money to have the ‘troubled children’ ‘looked after’ by gangsters. John Allen, who is now serving his third prison sentence for child abuse, became a millionaire within just a few years of opening the Bryn Alyn Community.

I cannot understand how John McDonnell, who would have seen the millions of pounds being transferred into the bank account of John Allen and others, could ever have been so stupid. There wasn’t just one complaint about abuse in those homes, there were hundreds. In July 1986, Ian Muir, the Deputy Headmaster of the ‘school’ for the Bryn Alyn kids, went to prison for six months for having sex with a girl in her early teens.

 

Following the abolition of the GLC, McDonnell was employed as Head of the Policy Unit at Camden London Borough Council. In 1987, McDonnell became Chief Executive of the Association of London Authorities (eventually the Association of London Government), where he represented all the London Boroughs in their relations with central Gov’t and Europe. McDonnell fought for his home constituency of Hayes and Harlington at the 1992 General Election, but was defeated by the Conservative incumbent Terry Dicks, by 53 votes. During the campaign, Terry Dicks sued for libel over critical material in McDonnell’s campaign leaflets; McDonnell settled and paid Dicks damages of £15,000 plus legal costs of £55,000.

As the MP for Hayes and Harlington, John McDonnell has been involved in several local community campaigns, including one opposing the expansion of Heathrow. He opposed New Labour policies on the Iraq War, foundation hospitals, student top-up fees, trust schools and anti-terror laws.

McDonnell voted against the 2003 Iraq War. In October 2006, McDonnell was one of 12 Labour MPs to back Plaid and the SNP’s call for a parliamentary inquiry into the war in Iraq.

In May 2003, McDonnell said of the IRA ‘It’s about time we started honouring those people involved in the armed struggle. It was the bombs and bullets and sacrifice made by the likes of Bobby Sands that brought Britain to the negotiating table. The peace we have now is due to the action of the IRA’.

Just to remind you John: In 1972, Jean McConville, a widow with 10 children, was dragged screaming from her house in Belfast at gunpoint by four wimmin, in front of her children, after being wrongly accused of passing information to British forces. She was shot in the head a few hours later. For three weeks after her abduction, her seven youngest children lived alone in the house, looked after by their 15 year old sister. Mrs McConville’s children were eventually taken into care by the social services and split up. One of them was housed in a children’s home already notorious for the sexual and physical abuse of children and was severely abused himself there. Most of Mrs McConville’s children developed serious difficulties and have led troubled lives. Dolours Price has admitted being involved in transporting Jean McConville after she was abducted.

Michael Mansfield acted as a defence barrister for Dolours Price. I wrote to Michael Mansfield in 1993 and told him some of what was happening to me at the hands of Gwynedd Social Services. He ignored it. At that time, the much publicised North Wales Police investigation into a possible paedophile ring in north Wales/Chester which was being concealed at the highest levels was coming to an end, with the police concluding that there was no ring. Hundreds of complaints had been made during the investigation, a file was sent to the DPP, but there were no prosecutions.

 

How would a widow with 10 children ever have time to be working for the British forces? But then how would Sadie Francis, a consultant psychiatrist – even though she shouldn’t have been – and three social workers employed by a gang of paedophiles, ever have been in fear for their lives because I walked into a room ‘carrying a rolled up newspaper’? But they were so terrified that they rang the police citing this as evidence of my dangerousness and demanded that I be arrested immediately. The newspaper won’t even have been a BNP publication, it will have been ‘The Guardian’ or the Indie.

 

Threatened with expulsion from the Labour Party, McDonnell went on to offer a rationale for his comments re the brave freedom fighters who murdered widows with 10 kids in an article written for The Guardian in June 2003 (“Expulsion would be an odd reward for telling hard truths”), stating:

 

McDonnell, in his study at Hayes, has a plaque which was presented to him by Gerry Kelly, dedicated to the “H-Block Martyrs 1981”, referring to those who died during the 1981 Irish hunger strikes. 

According to a report in ‘The Times’ published in November 2015, McDonnell in 1985 made similar comments at a Labour Committee on Ireland meeting, before the start of the Northern Ireland peace process. The Deptford Mercury asserted at the time that McDonnell had suggested there was a role for “the ballot, the bullet and the bomb” in bringing about a United Ireland, and joked about “kneecapping” the “gutless wimp” Labour Councillors who had declined to join the meeting.

The real gutless wimps are a bunch of well-paid professional people who did the bidding of a trafficking gang because they did not dare take on the Top Doctors of the NHS.

McDonnell is a leading member of a number of all-party groups within Parliament, including groups representing individual trade unions, such as the PCS, the RMT, the FBU, the NUJ and justice unions such as NAPO. He is also a leading member of groups on a wide range of issues such as Britain’s Irish community, the Punjabi community, endometriosis (does John McDonnell have much knowledge of the research into this – I don’t question his membership of the group on the grounds that he is in possession of testicles, more that I suspect that John knows bugger all about this condition) and Kenya. McDonnell is a member of the Labour Land Campaign, which advocates introducing a land value tax.

John McDonnell has consistently opposed the privatisation of public services and Chaired the Public Services not Private Profit Campaign launched in 2006 and supported by sixteen trade unions linking up with students, pensioners, health campaigners and the World Development Movement. 

The children’s homes in north Wales to which McDonnell’s mates in London sent kids were all privately owned. The associated prostitution, child porn and drugs business which Allen et al ran were also private enterprises. John Allen and Dafydd became millionaires and most of the other key figures in the gang did very nicely for themselves as well. Some of the ‘low paid’ former Angels of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh own yachts, second homes in Florida and multiple properties which they let out to holidaymakers or other tenants. They are far, far wealthier than most of the rest of north Wales.

I unknowingly moved into a house in Cwm-y-Glo a few years ago which was owned by a lady from Llanberis called Mo. The house was ropey, but I had two dogs and it was difficult to rent somewhere with pets, so I took it. The house turned out to be even ropier than I thought, in fact I found out that it had been condemned as being unfit for human habitation. Then the back door fell off its frame, the whole structure being rotten. Mo’s husband arrived and nailed the back door shut. At this point my PhD supervisor told me that he’d lend me the money to move somewhere else, because the house at Cym-y-Glo was now frankly dangerous, particularly as the paedophiles’ friends had a track record of trying to set fire to my houses. When I told Mo that I was moving out she asked me if I had any friends ‘perhaps with children, overseas students?’ who might want to rent it. I explained slowly and carefully to Mo that the house was dangerous and that she was breaking numerous laws by letting it out in that condition.

Mo herself lived in a nice house in really good nick in Llanberis. I was told that Mo was actually very affluent, although she was seen around the village looking a bit down at heel.

Mo was close friends with an Angel from the Hergest Unit who was abusing his kids. Mo knew about this and at one point asked me to stop telling people what had happened to me at the hands of the Hergest Unit.

There was one blessing when I lived at Berwyn Mount. The house was so damp that the paedophile gang would never have been able to set fire to it. Which must have been why they threw dog crap at my door, told the neighbours that I was a Dangerous Nutter, broke into my car, accused my dogs of being vicious and sent a heavy around who claimed that I owed him money when I didn’t. A retired policeman lived just down the road one side of me and a Top Doctor who had previously worked at the Hergest Unit lived the other side of me. They knew who was behind the harassment and intimidation but refused to tell me. Oh yeah and while I lived at that house, a drug addict smashed my car to bits, in broad daylight, in front of a crowd of witnesses, in Llanberis High Street. She was not charged, the police told me that it was my fault because my dogs had barked at her. Her partner was a big time dug dealer from Liverpool, who days before had fled Llanberis after guns were waved around. The addict herself worked as a care assistant in an old folk’s home in Penisarwaun, which was also employing traffiicked labour from Albania.

So if Helen Thomas would like to leave a message for me on the blog explaining how she will pay me some of the profits from her partner’s drug dealing business to compensate me for my car that she wrote off, I’ll be delighted to hear from her. I presumed that Helen’s unprovoked attack on me was not a one-off, because while it was happening one of her kids was screaming ‘stop it mum or you’ll get arrested again’.

I did mention to the police that there was probably a child protection issue, what with terrified kids, Helen being an insane, violent, drug addict and her boyfriend being Mr Big, but no, the policeman told me very firmly that there was No Problem. The problem was my dog who, unlike all the other dogs named in this post, did bark. He barked at Helen Thomas because she was screaming abuse at him and smashing up my car, while he was in the car with my other dog, who because she was elderly and deaf, didn’t bark.

They are a vicious criminal gang, not Caring Angels and they should have been put out of action a very long time ago O SPINELESS COLLUDING GITS.

 

Mo was also working a scam with her WEA classes, perhaps someone should investigate that, yet another way in which the Empowered Service Users of Gwynedd are so often helped.

It was when I was living at Cwm-y-Glo that David Blunkett awarded my fellow villager, Dee Edwards, with her Good Citizen’s Award. Meanwhile, Dee wrote letters to newspapers about the dangers of Black Mentally Ill people and held fundraising activities for her ‘victim’s charity’ – ‘Mothers Against Murder and Aggression’ no less – on the field which was located next to the car park, the bus stop and the main road into the village. When Dee was holding a fundraiser, it wasn’t a matter of you choosing to stroll over, join in and donate; instead as one appeared from whatever direction, one would be surrounded by a bunch of Dee’s supporters who would glower at you and tell you that you wanted to donate didn’t you, after all this was a charity collecting money to fight murderers and nutters. No of course I didn’t donate, which was probably why I had dog crap thrown at my house.

That woman intimidated half the village Blunkett you idiot, people could not believe it when she then picked up a sodding MBE. Dee Edwards arrived in north Wales from Liverpool, but no-one quite knew why.

 

McDonnell is ““not supportive of PFI schemes”, declaring that has “opposed every PFI scheme that was proposed”. In 2006, during the parliamentary debate on the Budget Resolutions, John McDonnell warned against PFIs, calling for an inquiry:

“There are numerous examples. I refer hon. Members to the work of Alison Pollock and to the publications by Unison in recent months, which contain example after example in the public services, health and education where PFI has been used to exploit the public purse, has failed to deliver and has delivered large bonuses and profits to individual company directors. That is why I regret that the Chancellor is going along that line. I would welcome a Government inquiry into PFI, which would probably echo the work done by the Public Accounts Committee on individual PFI schemes, which has demonstrated their lack of deliverability and cost effectiveness.”

 

 

If John McDonnell cares to read my post ‘More Summer Reading’, he can acquaint himself with the many scams from which many highly paid people have done very nicely that Alyson Pollock has robustly supported on the grounds that they are Of The NHS and thus Helping The Poor. They are helping Alyson Pollock and her mates a great deal more than The Poor.

Who do you think waved so many of the NHS PFI schemes through John? It was the NHS itself, many, many people in the NHS loved those schemes, all they saw was the dosh that would be provided to satisfy their endless demands. PFI was actively sold to them on the grounds that now ‘the NHS will get the investment that it needs’. They didn’t bother to read the small print, all they saw was another trough of plenty coming their way.

In 2015, McDonnell’s name appeared on a letter calling for the armed police and MI5 to be disbanded. He claimed that he had not signed the letter, which was produced by the Socialist Campaign for a Labour Victory but he was photographed holding a copy of the letter, although he later said that he did not know that the demand was on the letter.

 

During a hustings for the GMB on 7 June 2010 when McDonnell was pursuing his Party leadership bid, he was asked what single act he would do to improve the world if he could travel back to the 1980s. His off-the-cuff reply was that “I was on the GLC that Mrs. Thatcher abolished, I worked for the NUM and we had the NUM strike, I think I would assassinate Thatcher”.

All that you needed to have done John was to have made public what this man was doing:

 

Peter Morrison

 

You had all the evidence John: you were sending kids from London to the children’s homes in north Wales and were paying the paedophile gang handsomely, you were receiving the complaints that the kids were being abused and you were also mates with the NALGO and NUPE reps who worked for the unions which numbered the abusers among their members and provided legal advice for the abusers when they were the subject of complaints. It wasn’t rocket science.

 

In Sept 2016, McDonnell was appointed to something which I heard called The Queen’s Privy the other day, so now he can use the title The Right Honourable. So now John’s in The Queen’s Privy along with Trumpers and the many others who concealed Dafydd and the gang.

 

In the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire, McDonnell said that those who died were ‘murdered’ by political decisions. He’s quite right, as were the kids in care and Empowered Service Users in north Wales. Just as well for John that they were – if those political decisions had not been made, a great many people would have gone to prison, including a few of those who are currently in The Queen’s Privy.

No-one warned us John. No-one ever came up to Brown and me, not even any of the many undercover officers who were around Bethesda posing as hippies and said ‘for God’s sake don’t go near the Top Doctors, every one of them is involved in a massive trafficking ring which stretches to Europe, they targeted Sally and because you’ve both complained they’re trying to kill you.’ For years and years, people were ‘referred’ to that bunch of gangsters. If, like me, they decided that they really didn’t want to be propositioned by horrible old psychiatrists, they were arrested and sectioned. Parents who were OK but struggling had their kids removed from them and given to paedophiles; Empowered Service Users who refused to answer their doors and locked the paedophile gang out of their houses found that their doors were broken down by the police and they were forcibly taken to Denbigh or Hergest or other such places; any young person with vulnerabilities whom the Top Docs thought that the traffickers might like the look of was ‘referred’. And once you were ‘referred’ you never, ever got away. Not even if you moved to London. Because you and Jeremy were in London weren’t you John…

It was entirely a political decision. MI5 were recording everywhere. In the early 1990s, Tony Francis chased me along a main road in north Wales, in daylight, accompanied by a Staffie bull terrior, hurling insults at me. (Years later, this was just one of the many Tony-related incidents which Tony’s colleague Ella Fisk told me to attribute to Tony’s mood disorder.) I walked into a police station located on that road and said to the Sgt ‘have you seen what this man is doing?’ The Sgt told me to get out of the police station or he’d arrest me. I asked him what I was supposed to do in the face of someone behaving like this. He told me that for all he cared I could chuck myself off the suspension bridge, he was here to protect decent people. Decent people threw a petrol bomb into a building and killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal not long after this incident.

The other day I received a blow by blow account of that incident with Francis; a transcription of everything that Francis said, a detailed description of the clothes that I was wearing, the lot. It was indeed as I remembered it. Even the bit where Tony Francis got a camera out and took a picture of my bum. I was told that the whole scenario had been filmed by someone and bloody hell were they worried when they saw it.

But no-one stopped any of it.

A political decision John.

John McDonnell managed Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership campaign. The Jeremy who previously worked for NUPE, who remained friends with them all in NUPE and NALGO, the Jeremy who’s election agent’s business partner went to prison for a series of sex assaults on schoolboys, the Jeremy who was surrounded by the paedophile gang which operated in Islington, a gang with links to Dafydd et al. Jeremy sat on an NHS body which covered Hariney/Islington/Bloomsbury when Dafydd had direct links to the NHS and social services in those areas. After Jeremy was elected as an Islington MP, he was told by Dr Liz Davies, the Islington whistleblowing social worker, that kids were being horrifically abused in the Islington children’s homes. Jeremy didn’t respond. Some of the Islington kids were murdered. See my previous posts for details of this cesspit.

No wonder they all love Jeremy in his local authorities. The whole bloody lot of them colluded and Jeremy will never say a word about any of it. They’ve been colluding for decades as well – the Bloomsbury set were crossbred with the Anglo-Welsh aristocracy in the first part of the 20th century when Amabel Strachey married Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and subsequently settled at Clough’s family seat at Llanfrothen/Croesor. Sir Clough then let out the cottages on the estate to their bohemian friends from England (see post ‘The Village’).

 

 

Obviously I need a bit of political balance a la the BBC on this blog, so I’ll now pay a bit of attention to a man whom I meant to cover weeks ago but have been too busy to do so, a man much in the news at present – the Tory MP, David Davies, or ‘DD’ as he styled himself on the T shirts worn by his young female supporters some years ago when he was standing for something or other. Probably the leadership of the Tory Party.

David Michael Davis has been the MP for Haltemprice and Howden (in Yorkshire) since 1997 and served as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, July 2016-July 2018. Davis was previously elected to the Commons for Boothferry (in Yorkshire) in 1987 and was re-elected in 1992. Davis squeezed into The Queen’s Privy along with the rest of them in the 1997 New Years Honours, just before Sir Ronnie began hearing the witnesses evidence in public…

Born to a single mother, Betty Brown, in York on 23 December 1948, Davis was initially brought up by his grandparents there. His father, whom he met once after his mother’s death, is Welsh. After his mother married Ronald Davis, the family moved to London, where they lived initially in a flat in Wandsworth which Davis has described as “a terrible little slum”. Later, after his half-sister was born, the family moved to the Aboyne council estate in Tooting, his stepfather being a shop steward at Battersea Power Station. Davis attended Bec Grammar School.

When Davis were a lad, St George’s hadn’t yet relocated to Tooting, but Springfield Hospital was there as was the notoriously dreadful Tooting Bec Hospital, which was so bad that even the paedophiles of Springfield wouldn’t work there; Tooting Bec Hospital was closed down at the time of Peak Paedophilia in Tooting. However, the paedophile ring in the Tooting/Wandsworth area was in existence and at some point in Davis’s life – certainly during his political career – Davis will have been made aware of it. The one-time Director of Education for Wandsworth, Donald Naismith, was known to be a paedophile and involved with the gang (see previous posts).

On leaving Bec Grammar School in Tooting, Davis worked as an insurance clerk and joined the TA’s 21 SAS (Artists) Regiment. He then went to Warwick University where he completed his degree. Whilst at Warwick, Davis was one of the founding members of the student radio station, University Radio Warwick and he founded a men’s choir. He went on to London Business School (1971-73) and later to Harvard University, (1984-85).

Davis met his wife, Doreen, at Warwick. They married on 28 July 1973 and have three children.

Whilst a student, Davis was active in the Federation of Conservative Students, becoming national Chairman in 1973.

Davis worked for Tate & Lyle for 17 years, rising to become a senior executive, including restructuring its troubled Canadian subsidiary, Redpath Sugar.

Davis was Conservative Party Chairman, 2001-02 and Shadow Secretary of State for the Office of Deputy PM, when IDS was Leader of the Tories.

Davis used his first interview as Shadow Home Secretary in November 2003 to state his personal support for a reintroduction of the death penalty for people convicted of multiple murder ‘where there is clear evidence and no doubt’ surrounding the offender’s guilt, citing Peter Sutcliffe and Ian Brady as examples of offenders who would fall into this category. This interview came almost 40 years after the abolition of the death penalty for murder. Furthermore Davis ignored the reality that the criminal justice system is so corrupt that it is quite difficult to maintain that in almost any case there is ‘no doubt’. Sutcliffe and Brady were both in the hands of ‘professionals’ whom I know were thoroughly corrupt and had stitched up innocent people; to what extent that went on in the cases of Sutcliffe and Brady I am not sure, but one couldn’t rely upon what was said by those who proffered their opinions.

Between 2003 and 2008, Davis was the Shadow Home Secretary in the Shadow Cabinets of both Michael Howard and David Cameron. Davis had previously been a candidate for the leadership of the Conservative Party in 2001 and 2005.

At the time of the 2005 Conservative leadership contest, David Davis was Shadow Secretary of State for the Home Department. His Campaign Manager in the leadership contest was Conservative MP and Davis’s Deputy as Shadow Home Secretary, Andrew Mitchell (who in 2010 became Secretary of State for International Development in Cameron’s Cabinet).

On 12 June 2008, Davis unexpectedly announced his intention to resign as an MP and was immediately replaced as Shadow Home Secretary; this was in order to force a by-election in his seat for which he intended to seek re-election by mounting a specific campaign designed to provoke wider public debate about the erosion of civil liberties in the UK. Following his resignation as MP, Davis became the Conservative candidate in the resulting by-election, which he won a month later. In 2012, together with Liam Fox, he founded the Tory pressure group Conservative Voice to amplify the voice of grassroots members, which Davis thought was getting lost in the party.
