The Price Is Right

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

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

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

‘How did they get away with this?’

Even with a powerful accomplice.See the source image

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Duchess is a supporter of UNICEF.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Have You Come Far?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

She was called “Melons” in the popular press.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lady Helen and her husband have four children:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is Paola a Satirist of huge proportions by any chance?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tom remained silent.Image result for professor tom burns images

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Paul Bowden

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See previous posts for Dr Mawson details…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A pity about Isabella and McQueen though.

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tony Francis was demanding a Strategy Meeting…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Just a few examples.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Professional Memberships:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Names Of More Witnesses:

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

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

 

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

12 Nov 1991 – Mawson wrote to Dr Paul Nickson…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

More names of witnesses:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

THEY FITTED HIM UP.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See the source image

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That’s how little Alun Davies knew about me!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Sally Baker baker.sally1@googlemail.com

Thu, Oct 24, 2019, 8:45 AM

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

Putting Things Right – Perfick

I mentioned in a previous post that I had recently written to Sister Hutt about just some of what had happened to me at the hands of the NHS and Social Services in Wales when Sister Hutt was Welsh Gov’t Health Minister. I provided only an outline, having at the time complained to the North West Wales NHS Trust (who then managed the facilities concerned), the Gwynedd Community Health Council, the GMC and the North Wales Police, yet got nowhere, not even a full investigation into my complaint. Some years later, having finally received copies of my medical records that had been unlawfully withheld from me, I found documentation demonstrating a conspiracy and serious crime far greater than even I had suspected and as the harassment, intimidation and wrongful arrests continued, I wrote to Peter Hain, then Miranda’s Secretary of State for Wales, about matters. I am aware that a number of other people had experiences so bad with the NW Wales NHS Trust that they too wrote to Peter Hain. I did not receive an acknowledgement or a response of any sort from Peter Hain or anyone else.

This is the text of my e mail to Sister Hutt, sent on 24 Oct 2019:

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

 

Some one hour after I sent the above message to Sister Hutt (using the e mail address for her supplied on her Welsh Gov’t webpage), I received this e mail from Vaughan Gething’s automated reply service:

Dear Dr Baker,

Thank you for your e-mail of 24 October to Jane Hutt AM regarding your alleged assault at the Hergest Mental Health Unit. Your correspondence has been passed to Vaughan Gething AM, as the Minister responsible for Health and Social Services and I have been asked to respond.

I was sorry to read about the situation you describe. However, I hope you will understand that neither the Minister nor his officials are able to intervene in an individual case or complaint as these are matters which must be dealt with by the medical providers responsible in this instance Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

I note from your email that you have previously contacted the health board to raise your concerns and you have taken the correct approach in contacting those involved in your care. The NHS operates a procedure for raising concerns which is managed independently. Therefore, if you remain dissatisfied with the reply from the health board, you may wish to raise your concerns through the ‘Putting Things Right’ process. I have attached a copy of the leaflet which explains the process in more detail.

You may also find it helpful to know a network of Community Health Councils (CHCs) exists in Wales. CHCs provide free, confidential advice and support to patients who have a complaint about NHS services. If you would like to discuss your concerns with the Betsi Cadwaladr CHC, you should contact Geoff Ryall-Harvey, the Chief Officer as follows:

Bangor Office Unit 11 Chestnut Court Parc Menai Bangor Gwynedd LL57 4FH Telephone: 01248 679284 Email: admin@waleschc.org.uk
Wrexham Office Unit 1B and 1D Wilkinson Business Park Clywedog Road South Wrexham LL13 9AE Telephone: 01978 356178 Email: admin@waleschc.org.uk

Yours sincerely

Peter Jones Deputy Director of Operations

 

Readers may like to read the leaflet ‘Putting Things Right’ and consider the contents of this leaflet in the context of the matters about which I e mailed Sister Hutt. However if they wish to scream with laughter and/or cry at the leaflet that is sent to NHS patients in Wales who have been on the receiving end of serious criminal activity on the part of NHS staff, they’ll have to ask the Welsh Gov’t for a copy, because it was sent to me in pdf form so I can’t copy and paste the contents and it won’t download and allow me to attach it to this blog post.

That’s a terrible shame because the leaflet is just wonderful. It would be flattering to describe it as having been written for primary children; most of the leaflet consists of Welsh Gov’t and NHS logos and the business part of the leaflet is a series of boxes filled with two or three sentences of large type, telling you to Discuss It With Your Doctor, the Health Board, or the CHC.

In smaller font at the end of the leaflet, the address of the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales is provided, but there is no guidance at all explaining the severe limitations of the Ombudsman’s role, his vast discretionary powers re refusing to investigate or the fact that he is the son-in-law of a couple on Anglesey who over decades have played a key role in the Services about which so many people are now raising concerns with the er Ombudsman.

The FM of Wales at the time:

The FM’s SPAD for the NHS and Social Services at the time:

BBC News has reported today that although there is not a Welsh Assembly election looming, but a General Election and because Health is devolved in Wales no-one in Dec 2019 will be voting for any politician who is responsible for the NHS in Wales, the NHS in Wales is a hot potato in this General Election and Westminster politicians are planning to descend upon Wales to Campaign. There are of course kith and kin of Westminster politicians and others with political influence outside of Wales in the Welsh Assembly and The Hague’s sister-in-law is (or was) the Chief Exec of the Welsh Assembly.

Step back from the barefaced lies Campaigners and take a long, hard look at the NHS in Wales. It is an absolute disgrace and the spectre of highly paid people from England who are not in any danger from the catastrophe that is the NHS in Wales fighting over How Many More Billions It Needs and Ooh that’s just to catch up after The Cuts (WHAT CUTS??? There haven’t been any Cuts to the NHS, look at the figures) is insulting to the many people in Wales who have now suffered – or watched their families and friends suffer – serious harm, only to be fobbed off with the stupidities exemplified in the responses to my attempted correspondence with Sister Hutt, to which Sister Hutt herself will not condescend to reply.

Not only are we getting more of ‘Holby City’ and ‘Casualty’ but the BBC have announced that they are resurrecting ‘The Darling Buds Of May’ after 30 years! Catherine Zeta-Jones everyone, the pretty one from Swansea!! Swansea!!! Catherine who married the famous Hollywood actor and is WELSH, WELSH, LOVES HER HOME COUNTRY although she has lived in the US for many years, ooh but her little boy is called Dylan, a WELSH name. Not that Welsh, I mean Dylan has to live in America, so he’s not called Prysor or Gwynfor or Gwyndaf or Goronwy, but Dylan, thus the Americans can say ‘Gee are you WELSH???’ rather than ‘WHAT did you say your name was??’ 

Swansea. Edwina Hart is part of the Swansea Mafia, Val Feld plaque.jpgEdwina who as Health Minister screwed up as badly as Sister Hutt when Gangsters came after me but just lied about it instead of refusing to communicate at all. Rhodri Morgan’s family have run Swansea University for generations and after a career of research fraud and running the Westminster Paedophile Ring at St George’s Hospital Medical School in London, in 2000 Bodger Chamberlain then took up a lecturing job at Swansea University and moved to the Gower. Oily’s dad Professor Dai has much to do with Swansea as well and ooh they’ve got the Richard Burton Centre there now… [That’s enough propaganda -Ed.]

What more do politicians need to remain deeply in denial re serious organised crime and the NHS? Perfick!

 

The Wizard War

My post ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’ discussed the collection of Clever Scientists who worked in institutions such as Cambridge University (in particular the Cavendish Laboratory), Imperial, King’s College London and Birkbeck during the middle decades of the 20th century who in reality built their reputations on the back of their knowledge of organised abuse and serious wrongdoing in High Places, some of which they were directly responsible for themselves. Many of them worked for the security services or had friends/relatives/colleagues who did and as a result a great many people joined in the party. It is obvious that the sacks of honours, awards and even Nobel Prizes accumulated by this group was the result of deals thrashed out to keep people quiet or as rewards for their own collaboration. The trail led directly to Dafydd and Gwynne in north Wales as a consequence of people like Lord Patrick Blackett who had a second home at Croesor being of this group; then there were people like Eric Hobsbawm who worked alongside these folk and also had homes/friends with homes at Croesor or were part of the wider Bloomsbury Group.

Much has been written about the way in which Rosalind Franklin was mistreated by Crick and Watson, exposed to gross sexism and never received the credit for her work that she should have during her lifetime. Much less has been written about the widescale cheating, plagiarism, research fraud and disgraceful behaviour in general that prevailed among this group of academics/scientists. Rosalind Franklin won’t have been the only person who was shafted by them; she is just the most well-known name. Once Crick and Watson had stuffed Franklin over, the bandwagon could not be stopped and goodies had to be handed out to everyone who knew to ensure that they never exposed the travesty.

The situation was compounded by the close relationships that some of these scumbags had with politicians or their own roles as political advisors to people like Winston Churchill, who’s reputations just could not be sullied. Science and academia is international so the problem spread across the globe as the crowd moved between the most prestigious institutions in Europe, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

One person involved was Dorothy Hodgkin, Thatch’s tutor at Somerville College, who slept with a whole variety of people, including her PhD supervisor John Bernal, the Communist spy who was part of the deal to shaft Rosalind Franklin and ensure that Crick and Watson lapped up the credit for her work. Dorothy subsequently received her own rewards, including a Nobel Prize in 1964 and when Thatch became PM, favours were being called in everywhere. See ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’.

There were just so many people cashing in that I have not yet had (and will not have) time to discuss everyone and to the degree that they deserve to be discussed, but to illustrate the enormity of this problem and how it still dominates science/academia today, I’ll discuss a few more of those who benefited from this tawdry, sordid process in this post.

 

Reginald Victor Jones (29 September 1911-17 December 1997) was a physicist and military intelligence and expert who played an important role in the defence of Britain in WW II.

Reginald Jones was born in Herne Hill. He was educated at Alleyn’s School, Dulwich and Wadham College, Oxford. He graduated in 1932 and then completed his DPhil in 1934 in the Clarendon Laboratory at Oxford University. Subsequently, Jones took up a Skynner Senior Studentship in Astronomy at Balliol College, Oxford.

Ted Heath, Denis Healey and Woy were all at Balliol when Reg held his Senior Scholarship but they were undergrads on arts courses.

In 1936 Jones took up a post at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, a part of the Air Ministry, where he worked on the problems associated with defending Britain from an air attack. In September 1939, the British decided to assign a scientist to the Intelligence section of the Air Ministry. No scientist had previously worked for an intelligence service. Jones quickly rose to become Assistant Director of Intelligence (Science) there. During the course of WW II, he was closely involved with the scientific assessment of enemy technology and the development of offensive and counter-measures technology. Jones solved a number of scientific and technical intelligence problems during World War II and is known today as the “father of S&T Intelligence”.

R.V. Jones was briefly based at Bletchley Park in September 1939, but returned to London in November, leaving behind a small specialized team in Hut 3 at Bletchley who reported any decrypts of scientific or technology nature to “ADI Science”. Jones’s first job was to study “new German weapons”, real or potential. The first of these was a radio navigation system which the Germans called Knickebein.

At Jones’s urging, Winston Churchill ordered up an RAF search aircraft on the night of 21 June 1940 and the aircraft found the Knickebein radio signals in the frequency range which Jones had predicted. With this knowledge, the British were able to build jammers whose effect was to “bend” the Knickebein beams so that German bombers spent months scattering their bomb loads over the British countryside. Thus began the “Battle of the Beams” which lasted throughout much of World War II, with the Germans developing new radio navigation systems and the British developing countermeasures to them. Jones frequently had to battle against entrenched interests in the armed forces, but, in addition to enjoying Churchill’s confidence, had strong support from, among others, Churchill’s scientific advisor F. A. Lindemann and the Chief of the Air Staff Sir Charles Portal.

Lindemann aka Viscount Cherwell was discussed in my post ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’; Cherwell ended up at loggerheads with many people, including those Of Gwynne and Dafydd, but he remained influential and yet another person who couldn’t actually ever be ignored because of what he had been party to. See post ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’. Lindemann was R.V. Jones’s PhD supervisor.

R.V. Jones, with Joan Curran, were later instrumental in the deployment of “Window“: strips of metal foil, cut to a length appropriate to the radar’s wavelength, and dropped in bundles from aircraft, which then appeared on enemy radar screens as “false bombers”. R.V. Jones also served as a V-2 rocket expert on the Cabinet Defence Committee (Operations) and headed a German long range weapons targeting deception under the Double-Cross System.

In 1946 Jones was appointed to the Chair of Natural Philosophy at Aberdeen University, holding the Chair until his retirement in 1981. The bisexual Westminster Swinger Lord Bob Boothby who was involved with serious organised crime while he had a decades-long fling with Harold Macmillan’s wife Dorothy sat as a Tory MP for an Aberdeen constituency, 1924-58, which will have had a knock-on effect in the Aberdeen area.

Aberdeen University also hosted the Top Doc Sir Dugald Baird who pioneered aborting babies on the grounds of the poverty of their parents decades before abortion was legalised under certain circumstances in 1967. Dugald was so effective at aborting the foetuses of the poor that it impacted upon the socio-economic composition of the area for which he was the responsible Top Doc. Dugald’s practices were known at the highest levels of the medical establishment and across the UK; Dugald was so notorious that when the Top Docs at Tommy’s wanted to justify their brisk business in illegal abortions in the 1950s and 60s they held Dugald up as a role model and constructed him as a champ of Wimmin’s Rights. See post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’. No, Dugald just didn’t like plebs. Dugald later branched out into a terrifying variety of sociology, establishing an MRC-funded unit at Aberdeen led by Raymond Illsley, who in turn was affiliated to Dafydd’s mate Prof Jerry Morris. See eg. ‘Rab, High Table and the Founding Fathers’.

After the Dept of Agriculture at UCNW was given a shake in the wake of the unlawful imprisonment of one of their secretaries, Mary Wynch, a new Prof arrived from Aberdeen University, the dreadful J.B. Owen. J.B. Owen was hardly a New Broom, he was the son of the north Wales family who had supplied the dosh that had founded the Dept of Agriculture at UCNW and was a paid-up member of the Gang. Presumably Owen had been Called Home as part of the reinforcements. See previous posts.

Aberdeen University also supplied other staff to UCNW, such as the earth scientist Sinclair Buchan, who was a good mate of marine geologist Dr Tony Jones, the racist South African, leading light of the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team, friend of corrupt police officers and excellent mate of the Gang, the Ollie Reed of Bangor. Tony Jones starred as Michael Aspel’s guest on ‘This Is Your Life’ in Jan 1993 when the Gang were in need of PR and was constructed as a real hero with thousands of people who owed their lives to him. Opinion of Tony Jones in north Wales was somewhat different. See previous posts…

R.V. Jones did not want to stay in Intelligence under the proposed post-war reorganisation. During his time at Aberdeen, much of his attention was devoted to improving the sensitivity of scientific instruments. His book Instruments and Experiences details much of his later work in some depth.

Jones was appointed CBE in 1942, for the planning of a raid on Bruneval to capture German radar equipment. Churchill had proposed that Jones should be appointed a Companion of the Order of the Bath (CB) but the Head of the Civil Service Sir Horace Wilson threatened to resign as Jones was only a lowly Scientific Officer and the CBE was a compromise. Jones was subsequently appointed CB in 1946; and Companion of Honour (CH) in Lilibet’s 1994 Birthday Honours.

Sir Horace John Wilson (23 August 1882-19 May 1972) was the mandarin who was Head of the Home Civil Service, 1939-42. He graduated from the LSE at the very end of the 19th century and joined the Civil Service in 1900. Under the Premiership of Stanley Baldwin, in 1935, Wilson was afforded a secondment described as ‘for service with the Prime Minister’. This continued with ascent on Neville Chamberlain to the office in 1937. Horace was reputed to have huge influence over Chamberlain and Chamberlain’s biographer Robert Self noted that the two men “enjoyed the sort of unparalleled intimacy only possible among truly kindred spirits.”

Wilson was the British Gov’t official who had a key role in Chamberlain’s Gov’t re the appeasement period just prior to WW II.

Sir Horace in a car with Neville Chamberlain, Munich, 23 Sept 1938

Horace Wilson also liaised with the press, meeting newspaper owners to gain support for appeasement. He warned the BBC to exercise self-censorship in relation to Germany. Wilson was referred to in the book  ‘Guilty Men’ by Michael Foot, Frank Owen and Peter Howard (writing under the pseudonym ‘Cato’), published in 1940 as an attack on public figures for their failure to re-arm and their appeasement of Nazi Germany. Wilson stated in 1962 that, “Our policy was never designed just to postpone war, or enable us to enter war more united. The aim of our appeasement was to avoid war altogether, for all time.”

Wilson reverted to his role as Permanent Secretary to the Treasury until August 1942 when he retired, having reached the age of 60, then the pensionable age for the Civil Service. In January 1944 Wilson was appointed by Henry Willink, the Minister of Health, to act as Chairman of the National Joint Council for Local Authorities’ Administrative, Professional, Technical and Clerical Services. The Council was engaged in matters of pay and conditions of those in local government as well as supervision of recruitment and training provision.

Horace Wilson acknowledged having felt out of his depth in dealing with Nazi Germany and it has also been reported that he showed little interest in the fate of Germany’s Jews during the negotiations with Hitler. Speaking to another journalist, Colin Cross, in 1968 – 23 years after the liberation of Auschwitz – Wilson, by then well into his 80s, is quoted as saying that he understood Hitler’s feelings about the Jews. “Have you ever met a Jew you liked?” he asked Cross. Horace Wilson died in Bournemouth on 19 May 1972.

Sir Henry Urmston Willink (March 1894-20 July 1973)

 is best known for his service as the Tory Minister of Health, 1943-45 in Churchill’s Coalition Gov’t. Willink proposed many of the bases of the NHS later taken up by the Labour Party and dear old Nye.

Willink was born in Liverpool and educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge. Before he took his Cambridge degree, Willink volunteered for service in the Royal Field Artillery during WW I. Willink was 22 years old when he served as a commanding officer  at the 1916 Battle of the Somme.

Image result for battle of the somme
The Battle of the Somme took place between 1 July and 18 November 1916. More than three million men fought in the battle and one million men were wounded or killed. The first day on the Somme was, in terms of casualties, also the worst day in the history of the British Army: 57,470 casualties.

After Willink’s stint as one of the commanding officers in what is acknowledged as the worst cock-up in the history of any war in which Britain was involved (or indeed of any war at all), Willink received the Military Cross and Croix de Guerre. Post-war, Willink became a barrister, being called to the Bar by the Inner Temple in 1920, was appointed KQ in 1935 and became a Bencher in 1942. Mr Thrope became a member of Inner Temple during Willink’s lifetime as of course did Sir Cecil Havers, Cecil’s Michael Havers and Michael’s sister Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, all of whom played a valiant role in concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the crimes of Dafydd and Gwynne, as discussed in previous posts. Willink himself was still around to assist Dafydd and Gwynne when Mary Wynch first tangled with them and Willink was even around when Patient F first messed with Dafydd and Gwynne’s partners in crime when F was a young man living in Surrey.

While discussing all of these unscrupulous scumbags who were mates with Gwynne and Dafydd and concealing their serious criminality, I have forgotten to mention that Patient F’s dad had been in the RAF. After WW II, he settled in Woking in Surrey with F’s mum whom he had met in South Africa and spent the rest of his life as a Surrey businessman. F’s dad was also an enthusiastic Freemason and I’ve noted in previous posts that while F was undoubtedly sheltered a great deal by his family and their financial resources, the Gang came after him big time shortly after his father died. I suspect that after his dad was 6ft under, F was dead meat as the expression states. For a long time I just presumed that once the family money had run out and F’s dad and then his mum had died, F was simply alone in the world without the wealthy, influential people to help him that he had always been able to rely upon. The information that has come in since I began this blog suggests something far, far nastier which became even more nasty when F refused to shut up about the various abuses and crimes that he had witnessed, both in Surrey/London and then in north Wales.

In the way that I had no idea that the corrupt West Country politicians and professionals of whom I had knowledge were closely linked to the Gang in north Wales and had been for years, F won’t have realised that some of what he had witnessed had been concealed at Gov’t level and would have caused ructions if ever anyone had taken any notice of what he was saying. F experienced a rather different youth to me, he was part of 1960s rock/hippy/counter-culture and then in the 1970s he moved in the art world. By the 1990s people like Mick Jagger were hanging out with Royals, Cabinet Ministers and media barons. F knew that some of the people whom he had known when he was younger had become very rich and very famous and although he never would have thought of flogging a story to the media because he hated the media, Mick didn’t know that.

 

Sir Henry Willink – Doing It For The Poor With Nye and Uncle Harry!

Willink served as the Tory MP for Croydon North, 1940-48. In 1940 Willink was appointed Special Commissioner for the homeless in London.

Willink was made a Privy Counsellor in 1943, the year that he became Minister of Health. Meanwhile at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh…

Willink, with John Hawton, was responsible for the 1944 White Paper which followed the Beveridge Report ‘A National Health Service’. It proposed the creation of a fully comprehensive, universal healthcare system, free of charge and available to all citizens irrespective of means. When Labour came into office in 1945, it presented its own plan in preference to Willink’s, although Labour had supported Willink’s plan. The principal difference was that Willink’s plan talked of a “publicly organised” rather than a “publicly provided” service and Labour’s plan brought hospitals into full national ownership. Nye however, made concessions to GPs.

The man who grabbed Nye by the knackers and squeezed harder and harder until Nye followed every order from the BMA was Lord Charles Hill aka Charlie Corkscrew, a pal of Gwynne and Dafydd’s who ended up in Macmillan’s Cabinet, was ejected in the Night of the Long Knives after causing such trouble, caused yet more trouble so was given a peerage and caused trouble – including in his capacity as Chairman of the BBC after Harold Wilson realised that a total shite with dirt on everyone would be a useful ally even if he was a Tory  – until the day that Charlie died on 22 Aug 1989. See previous posts.

Willink kept his seat at the 1945 General Election by just 607 votes over Labour’s Marion Billson. Turnout was low and there were rumours of sacks of servicemen’s votes left uncounted in the Town Hall basement. Labour’s David Rees-Williams – later Baron Ogmore – had taken the other Croydon seat. See previous posts for info on David Rees-Williams, who was of course another friend of the Gang.

Lord Ogmore certainly knew how to go forth and multiply with maximum effect; he married Alice Alexandra Constance Wills and they had three children. His daughter, Elizabeth Rees-Williams, married the actors Richard Harris and Sir Rex Harrison, the businessman Peter Aitken and more recently Jonathan Aitken, the former Tory MP. Lord Ogmore’s grandsons are actors Jared Harris and Jamie Harris and Director Damian Harris. The network arising from Elizabeth Rees-Williams, her multiple husbands and their multiple spouses/partners and children is truly impressive on its own, as discussed in previous posts. Elizabeth’s network interlinks with the Gang in numerous ways; as a young man, Jonathan Aitken worked for Selwyn Lloyd, who among other things was Chancellor of the Exchequer in Macmillan’s Gov’t and later Speaker of the House. Lloyd, a Tory MP for a Wirral constituency, was a big pal of Dafydd and Gwynne. See previous posts.

Willink resigned from Parliament on 29 January 1948,

For many years the disgrace that was Warlingham Park Hospital existed near Croydon. Patients at Warlingham Park were battered and sexually assaulted, died in suspicious circumstances and were fitted up for criminal offences if they complained. Business as usual for many institutions. Unusually, there was in the end a major investigation at Warlingham Park and a number of Angels went to prison. At least some Top Docs at Warlingham Park had an arrangement with the Gang in north Wales.

My post ‘A Trade In People – Between London and North Wales’ discussed a family of Empowered Service Users from south London who were fleeced of their money and property by Top Docs at Warlingham Park in collaboration with unscrupulous lawyers and were then relocated by their Top Doc to Bethesda in the late 1980s. They had never even visited north Wales before, but that’s where they were packed off, with the promise from their Top Doc at Warlingham that ‘the lovely Welsh air will make you all better’. They knew that it was bollocks but they had no money and no choice. It was Bethesda for them. They were neglected so badly by the Top Docs in Bethesda and at the Hergest Unit that one of them died in the year that the Waterhouse Report was published.

 

Willink continued to serve in public positions. He served as Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge, 1948-66. So during the Eden, Macmillan and Douglas-Home years of suppressed and not so suppressed Scandal In High Places as discussed in previous posts, much of which could be traced to the door of Gwynne and Dafydd, one of those with a vested interested in assisting in keeping the lid firmly nailed down was dining at High Table. Willink was at High Table when Gwynne and Dafydd’s colleagues Lord Horace Evans and Basil Hume’s brother John Hume were inflicting serious damage upon Anthony Eden’s health (see previous posts) and when Clement Price Thomas et al performed that successful surgery on Lilibet’s dad who never recovered and died just a few months later. See post ‘Successful Surgery On King George VI!’.

Image result for magdalene college cambridge images

From 1953 until 1955 Willink was also VC of Cambridge University, so there’ll have been a great deal of dining at High Table. Willink was Chair of the steering committee that led to the formation of the Royal College of GPs, beginning in 1952. Willink later described his role as Chairman of that steering committee as “one of the very best projects with which I have ever been involved in my life.”

Image result for magdalene college cambridge images

Sir Henry got the Royal College of GPs off on such a sound footing that after D.G.E. Wood had spent a few years facilitating the trafficking ring in north Wales and breaching confidence/lying about me, the Royal College appointed him Treasurer and made him responsible for GP training across the whole of north Wales. Wood used to inspect other GP surgeries as well, right when he was coercing me into seeing Gwynne and then threatening Brown and me. Wood couldn’t be contacted at one point when Brown tried because he was ‘inspecting a surgery in Bridgend’. No wonder there has been since the 1980s a serious shortage of GPs in north Wales if it’s Wood setting the standard. If one is a good GP, would one ever tolerate being inspected by a friend of the Royal Lobotomist who had concealed corpses at Denbigh?

Chicken or egg Wood? Did you rise to high office in the Royal College because you blackmailed them or was it your reward for a job well done?

See the source image

Wood used to be rude about people on benefit. He once told me that ‘people like that’ ‘pull the wool over the doctor’s eyes and know how to get all that they can out of the social security, every cent’. While they lived on Maesgeirchan and their kids were trafficked by Wood and his mates. When I first knew Wood he lived in a bourgeois bungaloid on Cichle Hill at Llandegfan and he used to sit on his garden furniture in the front garden and drink his wine in the evening. Then in 1984 he moved to a huge house in the more exclusive part of Llandegfan, a modern palatial place with, I was told, designer ceilings. The house was called IX Ranch and Brown and I had been having a good laugh every time we went past and asked ourselves ‘Who lives in a house like this?’. One day the sign IX Ranch was replaced with a slate engraving saying ‘Tydden Hen Farm’, so we realised that vulgar people who were pretending that they weren’t vulgar had moved in. It was Wood, we laughed even more. A few years later Wood moved over to the Conwy area where I was told he had an even grander house, called something or other Court. After I began this blog I was told that he now uses a Cheshire address, although of course Wood opened for business in Cyprus a few years ago.

There will not be a Scrounger in Gwynedd who has milked the public purse as successfully as D.G.E. Wood. He was like something out of Bertolt Brecht re that dodgy abortionist in Chester, telling the plebs of Maesgeirchan that they had enjoyed themselves getting pregnant so now they could live with the consequences, while in the Student Health Centre student after student was cheerfully offered a trip to Chester in return for a fee. Girls who said that they wanted to keep the baby were considered to be quite mad and there was no support forthcoming. See previous posts eg. ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf!’.

‘The Threepenny Opera’ also went under the name of ‘A Penny For The Poor’. Every cent for those on Maesg; IX Ranch and millions for Wood.

 

In 1957 Willink served as Chairman of the Inter-Departmental Committee on the Future Numbers of Medical Practitioners and Intakes of Medical Students.

In Jan 1957,  Anthony Eden resigned as PM, on ‘medical advice’, his heath having been seriously compromised by the Top Docs (see post ‘Holding The Country To Ransom – Part II’ and in the autumn of 1957, Dennis Vosper, MP for Runcorn and Gang supporter who had only been Minister of Health since Eden’s resignation, suddenly resigned ‘on medical advice’ himself, lay low for a while and then emerged in the Home Office in time to help manage the Profumo Affair. Vosper’s resignation was something to do with Gwynne but I’m not sure what, or the joint enterprise of Gwynne and Dafydd, Dafydd having qualified as a Top Doc in the summer of 1957. See previous posts. The Swinging at Croesor on the part of Bertrand Russell and Patrick Blackett’s other mates continued.

Willink’s Steering Committee concluded that too many doctors were being trained and proposed a 12% reduction. That was soon realised to be a misjudgement. I do enjoy it when the Top Docs have a crisis over medical student/Top Doc numbers. As they are interviewed in the media about the Crisis, whether it is not enough Top Docs in training or too many, none of them ever inform the general public that the Top Docs themselves dictate the numbers of training places to be made available; Sir Henry and his ilk sit on the Committees, but they are told by the Top Docs how many places are needed. The Top Docs base their needs re training places on one criterion: to ensure that there are not so many Top Docs trained that their salaries go down.

As long as there are not enough Top Docs to provide the ‘services’ that are on offer, Top Docs’ salaries will remain high and if the Gov’t dare steps out of line, there will be an almighty stamping of feet and screaming and a Strike will be threatened, accompanied by wall to wall Top Docs in the media talking about the Crisis, explaining that Babies Will Die, that the NHS is Underfunded and it is all so intolerable that Top Docs are leaving the UK in huge numbers because they Don’t Have To Put Up With This. If any PM tries to hold out, a well-known senior Top Doc in a provincial area with a Hospital Under Threat and a not very popular sitting MP will announce that he/she is Going To Stand For Election To Defend The NHS and the PM will back down immediately.

Here’s Glanfa Surgery, where Wood, the ’eminent GP’ sat in one of the upstairs rooms for so many years outraged by Scroungers; Glanfa was even more of a dump when Wood was the senior partner there, they’ve tarted the place up a bit:

From 1955 to 1971, Henry Willink held the office of Dean of Arches, the judge who presides in the provincial ecclesiastical court of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Arches Court of Canterbury. The Arches Court hears appeals from consistory courts and Bishop’s disciplinary tribunals in the province of Canterbury.

Henry Willink missed a few things during those years as Dean of Arches, but Prof Alexis Jay is now leaving no stone unturned in her exposure of Sexually Abusing Clergy. It does at least mean that Alexis doesn’t have time to pay much attention to social workers who facilitated so much of the organised abuse on the part of the C of E. The two groups work closely together and some clergymen have worked as social workers as well eg. the Rev Bob Morgan, father of the Baroness of Ely. Always a charitable man, the Rev Bob assisted Methodist Westminster molester George Thomas with George’s charidee fundraising.

The Baroness is married to a Top Doc herself:

The Baroness and her husband are People Of Faith, as were Thatch and George Thomas. The archive of the Margaret Thatcher Foundation contains the text of a speech that Thatch gave on Jan 17 1990 to the National Children’s Home, as the inaugural George Thomas Society Lecture. The George Thomas Society was founded by the NCH for the purposes of tackling child abuse. Thatch explained in her lecture that the basis of her and George Thomas’s charitable feelings towards children was their shared Christianity. Esther and others known for their charidee were in the audience. See post ‘An Expression Of Their Faith’.

It was in 1990 that the Gang began using the High Court in their pursuit of me, the first case being brought in Feb 1990. See post eg. ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

In 1990, the allegations of a big VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire would not go away and the North Wales Police launched their first investigation…

 

Prof Alexis Jay may know of the various charitable initiatives spearheaded by R.V. Jones’s mate Joan Curran and her husband Sam, what with Sir Sam ending up as VC of Strachcylde University, because Alexis’s early career in social work got off to a flying start in Strathclyde no less. I’ll discuss the Currans’ charidee work shortly. Alexis’s husband – although he was someone else’s husband at the time, Alexis was his bit on the side – was a senior manager of Strathclyde Social Services and he gave Alexis a job as a social worker in his Dept. See eg. ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – The Scottish Play’.

Henry Willink was made a baronet of Dingle Bank in the City of Liverpool, in 1957, that year in which Gwynne did something appalling and Dafydd qualified as a Top Doctor from Liverpool University, having bagged his place there some years earlier via Sir James Chadwick, Sir John Cockcroft and other nuclear physicists who knew Lord Patrick Blackett. See ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’.

Readers may have noted an interesting sequence of events. In 1951 Cymro 007 aka Geraint Morgan QC, the bent barrister who worked for the security services and who’s remit was to protect the Gang from the consequences of their criminality, decided that his destiny lay as a Tory MP in darkest north Wales and stood as the Tory candidate for Merioneth, the constituency embracing Croesor. See ‘Cymro 007′. Shortly afterwards, Bertrand Russell’s friends Rupert and Elizabeth Crawshay-Williams found Russell the perfect home just down the road from Croesor and Russell took up residence in 1955. In 1951 Thomas Jones aka Lord Maelor, a local school teacher who relaxed in ladies’ clothes when off duty, defeated Geraint Morgan and became the Labour MP for Russell and the Welsh Bloomsbury Set. Thomas’s brother James Jones was the Labour MP for Wrexham, 1955-70. Lord Maelor died on 18 Nov 1984, after spontaneously combusting. Bryn Estyn, near Wrexham, was closed in 1984, the year that Brown and I complained about Gwynne. Lord Maelor spontaneously combusted at about the time or just after I was offered a place to do medicine at the Welsh National School of Medicine.

Dafydd must have decided that it would be a Top Doctor’s life for him at the time that Cymro 007 first stood for election in north Wales, because Dafydd left his job at Windscale and began the degree in medicine at Liverpool in 1952.

In 1952 PM Churchill ordered that the DG of MI5 was to be directly answerable to the Home Secretary rather than the PM. Churchill had appointed David Maxwell Fyfe aka Dai Bananas aka Lord Kilmuir as Home Secretary in 1951. Dai Bananas was also given the remit for Welsh Affairs. Dai Bananas was a bent barrister who served as Home Secretary, 27 October 1951-19 October 1954 and Lord Chancellor, 18 October 1954-13 July 1962. Previous posts have discussed how Dai Bananas was such a good personal friend of the Gang that in 1955, Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate George Brookes, a north Wales farmer and father of Gang member Tory MEP Beata Brookes, hired Dai to represent him in a trivial local dispute which if Brookes won would not have been worth Dai Bananas’ fee. The case went to appeal and because Dai wasn’t available, George made to with Quintin Hogg aka Lord Hailsham. See post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’. It reminded the plebs that We’re The Paedophiles’ Friends And you Can’t Get Us. Dai Bananas died in 1967, but as we know, Death Shall Have No Dominion. Previous posts have discussed how successive Hoggs – Quintin, son Douglas, daughter-in-law Sarah and granddaughter Charlotte – have all loyally served the Gang. It isn’t simply because of an attachment to the Establishment, Quintin was friends with Gwynne’s mate George Brookes.

Quintin Hogg, Baron Hailsham, in 1990

Dai Bananas was famously homophobic – as was Quintin – and enjoyed making public pronouncements about ‘buggers’ and ‘vice’ and a ‘plague’. Fyfe’s assumption of office as Home Secretary heralded a reign of fear for male homosexuals. He dramatically increased arrests of male homosexuals through police surveillance and entrapment via the use agents provocateurs, tapped telephones, forged documents and the absence of warrants. From 1,276 prosecutions in 1939 for actual or attempted sodomy or gross indecency, a year after Dai had assumed the office of Home Secretary prosecutions had soared to 5,443.

Dai Bananas was as confused as Gwynne over homosexuality. He was bezzie mates with the people who ran a paedophile/trafficking ring targeting boys and set up the Wolfenden Committee, which led to the decriminalisation of male homosexuality, while taking an ‘over my dead body’ attitude in public. Yet Dai knew what the Wolfenden Committee would recommend and it was he who appointed John Wolfenden as Chair. John Wolfenden’s son Jeremy was a high profile out gay and flaunted it. Jeremy Wolfenden hung out in gay clubs and if he knew that his venue for the night was likely to be staked out by Dai’s Bananas-inspired police, he used someone else’s name when signing in. Not a pseudonym, the name of someone else who was known to be gay, so they were arrested instead. Jeremy Wolfenden worked for the security services. John Wolfenden was the Headmaster of Uppingham School, 1934-44 and Shrewsbury School, 1944-50. He was appointed VC of Reading University in 1950. In 1962 the Privy Council appointed John Wolfenden as Chairman of the Council for the Training of Health Workers and the Council for the Training in Social Work, two bodies established by the Health Visiting and Social Work (Training) Act 1962. As with the training of Dafydd as a Toc Doc, it won’t have been a coincidence that John Wolfenden was appointed to those bodies. It happened when Macmillan was PM and the Cabinet was full of Dafydd and Gwynne’s mates, including Dai Bananas, at a time when Macmillan et al knew that the Profumo Affair would become public knowledge imminently.

In 1969, John Wolfenden was appointed as Director of the British Museum, a post from which he retired in 1973.

See previous posts for info on both Wolfendens.

Dai Bananas seemed to occupy a similar position to Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate Sir William Mars-Jones, the homophobic High Court judge who was a loyal supporter of the Gang as were Mars-Jones’s extended farming family who were based in Denbighshire. William was the father of Adam Mars-Jones, the gay novelist who has written about his father’s homophobia. William believed that Adam could be cured by having sex with women. The same allegations have been made about Carlo’s older male relatives when Carlo was younger.

Whatever these mad old gits thought about the causes of homosexuality, they knew that abducting and sexually assaulting children and young people was wrong, as was fitting people up in Court and murdering witnesses. I await some of those who were on board with them to explain themselves. Dai’s methods of ‘catching’ gay men were the very methods that were used against me and my friends. They didn’t even have the excuse that I was a lesbian who could be cured by sex with Gwynne and Dafydd. They were gangsters, no more, no less, gangsters sitting in clinics, in surgeries, in lawyers officers and Courts. Gangsters.

Previous posts have discussed how letters from Gwynedd Health Authority concerning me after I complained about Dafydd were CC’d to Mars-Jones’s sister-in-law, Dilys, who was busy in local public life in north Wales, including in the chapel and on Conwy County Council. William Mars-Jones was President of UCNW, 1982-95 and was Ronnie Waterhouse’s senior colleague and friend.

When Dai Bananas and Mars-Jones were in their hayday, the security services routinely used the methods mentioned above. By the 1980s they maintained that they didn’t do that sort of thing anymore. My documentation shows that they did and furthermore the Top Docs et al were doing it as recently as six years ago and they still will be doing it. The GMC knows as well as I do that they should not be forging letters purporting to have been written by me. NHS staff and others should not perjure themselves in Court. And if I don’t want to have sex with a disgusting old man covered in Brylcreem and his mates I won’t.

Can I just let the Gang and the Gwerin know that if Brown and I wanted, we too could forge documents, lie and perjure and try and force people to shag us when they have made it clear that they are not interested, but we don’t, although not being as thick and as incompetent as you, we would probably make better criminals. We too could plagiarise, leech ideas off other people and then claim it as our own work. I could spout shite about Caring and As A Woman give my biased, dangerous opinion and use it to manipulate people who are not as confident as me. I could form some hideous charidee For Wimmin or Service Users and make much of Wanting To Help while building my entire career on the back of it. I don’t. I could make nasty comments at the rest of the world constantly, I could spend my time trying to make everyone else feel inadequate, blame people having a hard time for their own plight and refuse to be friends with people who’s lives have been destroyed by the Gang on the grounds that they have Baggage and Problems. But I don’t. Because I am not a scumbag and that is the difference between you and me. As I have told many of you when you have shrieked at me ‘Well they’ve got more money than you have’, I could be wealthy if I became a gangster but I don’t want to.

Get it straight Gang, you have been sniping, undermining, threatening and doing much worse to me for years now. I STILL consider you to be thick unscrupulous idiots and I will not be changing my opinion.

 

The co-ordinated events re Lord Kilmuir, Geraint Morgan, Lord Maelor, Bertrand Russell, Dafydd et al was not coincidental but who planned it all I have not yet worked out; by the early 1950s someone definitely decided to make north Wales the organised abuse capital of the UK. There really is no other explanation as to why this nightmare was allowed to unfold during the first few years of the 1950s. Particularly when one considers the appointment of 1953 Everest Hero Sir Charles Evans, a Liverpool-based Top Doc who was lifelong mates with other Top Docs facilitating organised abuse (see eg. ‘Meet The Gwerin!) as the Principal of UCNW in 1958, the year after Dafydd qualified as a Top Doc from Liverpool University.

Brown maintains that this was not just a matter of Dafydd wanting a place at medical school and spotting his opportunity for blackmail; Dafydd was knowingly trained as Gwynne’s successor by the security services. In 1950 or thereabouts, the security services decided to make north Wales a fortress for organised abuse and identified Dafydd as a suitable candidate to receive the baton from Gwynne. They knew that Dafydd was dangerous, would do anything at all for money and had no sense of morality but that was exactly what was needed to silence people who had been sexually assaulted by aristos and members of the Royal Family if they were making a fuss. The blame definitely lies with Churchill’s administration. Every disastrous decision re this matter was made by Churchill when he was PM.

The security services must have been delighted when Dafydd made links with violent Irish Republican activists in the 1950s (see post ‘A Network Stretching Back Decades…’) and took his place as a Plaid activist/Parliamentary candidate as well, as discussed in previous posts. Brown keeps joking to me when I bang on about the state supporting Dafydd’s criminality that ‘Dafydd was the state’. He certainly was when they put him through Liverpool University and then sent him to the Maudsley to meet the Mr Bigs of organised abuse down there, but I think that the security services realised that they had made some rather big mistakes by the 1980s but they couldn’t rein Dafydd in because the reputations of people like Churchill would have been at stake had anyone actually done enough digging into the roots of the international people trafficking and Class A drugs network.

Anyone for Shotgun Ronnie’s War On Drugs?

In terms of the security services in the 1950s, Richard Crossman was a very senior officer by then and allowing that to happen was not a good idea.

God Save The Lilibet!!

Henry Willink was awarded an honorary LLD the University of Melbourne in 1955, which leaves one wondering what favours Willink did Australia. Anyone for thousands of child migrants from poor British families sent to Australia over decades to be used as free labour?

Image result for child migrants to australia from britain images

Ah bechod, off to a New Life, far away from their plebeian parents who bred like rabbits and lived in slums. The kids have all got their macs on, lest it is raining in Oz. The macs worn by the British State who knowingly sent those kids to lives of slavery and sexual abuse and did everything possible to ensure that the parents and kids never found each other again were rather more effective than the school macs worn by those children.

We didn’t know! There really was a great deal that No-One Knew about. How one misses thousands of kids being exported from Britain, thousands of victims of sex offenders illegally locked up in the Clwydian Hills and a few of them murdered, as well as all the molesting priests, social workers and goodness knows who else in a bureaucratic state I cannot understand. I’m not a huge state bureaucracy and even I noticed a few things amiss.

Willink’s papers are held at Churchill College, Cambridge.

R.V. Jones was elected FRS in 1965 and received an honorary DSc from the University of Aberdeen in 1996.

It was in 1996 that The Hague announced the Waterhouse Inquiry and of course in 1996 there was yet another attempt to frame and imprison Patient F and I on the basis of the perjury of an Angel, Bridget Lloyd. See previous posts.

Image result for william hague

R.V. Jones married Vera Cain in 1940 and they had two daughters and a son.

Jones’s autobiography, Most Secret War: British Scientific Intelligence 1939–1945, (published in the USA as ‘The Wizard War’) formed the basis, pre-publication, of the BBC 1 TV documentary series ‘The Secret War’, first aired on 5 January 1977 and narrated by William Woollard, in which Jones was the principal interviewee. The historian A. J. P. Taylor described Most Secret War as “the most fascinating book on the Second World War that I have ever read” and, more generally, it has acquired almost classic status.

In 1981, Jones became a founding member of the World Cultural Council. My post ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’ discusses many of the research fraudsters, spies and Commies who doubled up as Great Men Of Science who established the World Cultural Council in 1981. In the same year R.V. Jones delivered the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures on ‘From Magna Carta to Microchip’.

The World Cultural Council was established by the grander friends of Dafydd and Gwynne in the same year that Dr Death et al launched the SDP, which was undoubtedly an attempt by Dr Death to become PM on the back of the panic that followed the trial of Mr Thrope and Mary Wynch making her way to a lawyer. Dr Death et al  personally knew members of the Gang. See previous posts. There were fears that the Westminster Paedophile Ring was going to become horribly public. I wonder if the World Cultural Council was yet another Gang-related initiative to cover their tracks?

In 1993 R.V. Jones was the first recipient of the R.V. Jones Intelligence Award, which the CIA created in his honour and, logically, awarded to R.V. Jones.

Jones died on 17 December 1997. George Thomas had died on 22 Sept 1997. During 1997 Ronnie Waterhouse had heard evidence, in public, from former kids in care in north Wales. As they collapsed while giving evidence, began crying, vomited etc Ronnie and the lawyers who had been paid a great deal of money to represent everyone but the former kids in care reminded the world that this lot could not be believed because they were Criminals, Drug Addicts and Mentally Ill. There were more witnesses sitting in the Hergest Unit at the time who had not been told that their medical records would have provided solid evidence that organised abuse was a substantial problem in north Wales. My records alone would have confirmed that Lucille Hughes and Ron Evans, the crooked Gwynedd County Council lawyer, were ordering staff to perjure themselves in attempts to have complainants imprisoned. Ron was one of the lawyers who appeared at the Waterhouse Inquiry to defend against allegations of abuse on behalf of Gwynedd Social Services.

Ronnie Waterhouse: a good mate of T.M. Haydn Rees, CEO of Clwyd County Council, 1974-77 (see post ‘Ain’t Nothing Clean, Not Even The Calvinistic Methodists’). Ronnie’s dad was a good mate of Haydn Rees as well.

Patsy Scotland represented the Welsh Office at the Waterhouse Inquiry. As a young barrister Patsy was a housing lawyer helping the Poor and knew all the other ‘radical’ lawyers in London who have spent their entire careers carefully ensuring that they did nothing to piss off Dafydd and Gwynne or the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts for extensive details of Baroness Patricia Scotland’s many friends and colleagues as well as Patsy herself and the cosy relationships that they have enjoyed with the Gang’s network. Patricia Scotland was given a life peerage by Miranda during the Waterhouse Inquiry.

Previous posts have discussed another Radical Lawyer and a Wimmin’s Champ to boot, St Helena Kennedy (see eg. ‘Eve Was Framed – As Were A Lot Of Other People’ and ‘Close Your Eyes And Make A WISH’) and how St Helena knew about Dafydd, Gwynne and Jimmy Savile and kept schtum. I mentioned that St Helena’s book ‘Eve Was Framed’ contains a thank you to Prof Nigel Eastman of St George’s Hospital Medical School/Springfield. In 1991, Eastman was told by his colleague Dr Robin Jacobson that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that Jacobson thought that Tony Francis was as well. I had no knowledge that Jacobson had done this until I later obtained some of my records. Jacobson referred me to Eastman after refusing to treat me himself. Eastman told me to go back to north Wales because Dafydd was my doctor and ‘they know you there’. I was refused any sort of support in London and left effectively destitute, facing yet more criminal charges on the basis of Tony Francis and other members of the Gang. See eg. ‘Some Very Eminent Psychiatrists From London…’.

In April 1991 when the Gang made yet another attempt at having me imprisoned on the basis of their perjury at the Royal Courts of Justice at the Strand no less, St Helena was leading a test case in a Court next door to me, in which she was trying to have Sara Thornton released from a prison sentence, after Sara had killed her husband. As I left the Court, St Helena’s supporters were protesting outside and asked me to support them.

St Helena’s book with it’s thank you notice to Nigel Eastman, whom St Helena tells us has taught her so much and helped in so many of her cases, was published in Oct 1993. In the late summer of 1993 I was convicted by Bangor Magistrates Court of a Public Order offence after I had ‘looked at a social worker’ in Safeways. Jackie Brandt, the social worker concerned, had alleged that I had screamed and yelled at her and she had feared immediate violence. Brandt cried under cross-examination and admitted lying to the police and on oath. She admitted that I had not said anything to her at all, but I’d looked at her. That was the third time that Brandt had perjured herself in Court in attempts to have me imprisoned. See eg. ‘The Bitterest Pill’. Brandt was never investigated for perjury. After I had been convicted for looking at Brandt, I wrote to Mr Radical Barrister, Michael Mansfield, to tell him that social workers in Gwynedd were abusing their position and using the law to do so. Michael Mansfield at the time was based at Tooks Court Chambers with St Helena. I received a one-line reply from Mansfield. It was in Sept or Oct 1993 and the North Wales Police had recently closed their investigation into a possible paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire having found no evidence of any such thing.

Mansfield, St Helena and the rest of the Radical Barristers had an arrangement with the Top Docs that the Top Docs would provide expert witness reports for them in other cases as long as the Radical Lawyers didn’t act for us against Dafydd et al. It is how the Birmingham Six etc managed to overturn their convictions. Of course I am glad that the Birmingham Six were released; however although there was that agreement between the Top Docs and the Radical Ones, many of the same people were involved in framing the Birmingham Six et al as in framing us in north Wales. Michael Mansfield represented the Price Sisters who admitted planting a bomb in central London, but he wouldn’t represent people who had been abducted and unlawfully imprisoned by Dafydd.

Dafydd’s mate William Mars-Jones was a member of Gray’s Inn. As was Michael Mansfield. As was St Helena.

Documentation now in my possession demonstrates that people in Wandsworth Social Services knew Lucille Hughes, Dafydd’s mistress and the Director of Gwynedd Social Services, by name. Nigel Eastman worked with Wansdworth Social Services. Michael Mansfield lived in Wandsworth. Dafydd’s partner gang had been operating in Wandsworth since at least as far back as 1966-67. ‘See eg. Lord Snooty The Third’. Just for good measure, Donald Naismith, the Director of Education for Wandsworth, was an active paedophile who was abusing kids in care. See previous posts.

 

R.V. Jones is buried in Corgarff Cemetery, Strathdon, Aberdeenshire. His papers are held by Churchill College, Cambridge.

The Indie obituary for Professor R. V. Jones was published on 19 Dec 1997 by M. R. D. Foot

 

R. V. Jones was one of the main wizards during the secret war against Hitler, became a pillar of scientific education and wrote some notable books.

Jones-Woolsey-deClarens.gifR. V. Jones (left) with R. James Woolsey Jr. (Director of Central Intelligence) and Jeannie Rousseau (French WWII spy), 1993

[R.V.’s] father was a sergeant-major in the Grenadier Guards, and from him he learnt both patriotism and a sense of order.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones
He went to Alleyn’s School at Dulwich, from which he won an exhibition at Wadham College, Oxford, where he distinguished himself so much that he was encouraged to stay on, to take a doctorate in physics and to research under the future Lord Cherwell in the Clarendon Laboratory. He specialised in infra-red rays, and spent the years 1934-36 at Balliol, as Skynner Senior Student in Astronomy; but then moved over to deal with the more pressing problems of the German menace. He was made a scientific officer at the Air Ministry in 1936, and was seconded for a year to the Admiralty in 1938-39. In both departments he applied a first-class scientific intellect to practical problems of warfare.
When the Second World War began, he became MI6’s principal scientific adviser; keeping up his Air Ministry connection for cover. His first important task was to discover how Luftwaffe pilots navigated when they overflew England by night, during the Battle of Britain and the blitz. He unravelled the Lorenz beam navigation systems they were using, and was sometimes able to jam, sometimes to divert their beams. On the night of the Coventry raid in mid-November 1940, Jones guessed correctly which wavelength they would be using; a clerical error transmitted the guess wrongly to the jamming stations, and so helped to account for the raid’s success.

Thank goodness that it was a ‘clerical error’ that caused the decimation of Coventry and not R.V. Jones Getting It Wrong. The clerical error was probably made by Trumpers and blamed on someone else who wasn’t mates with so many aristos.
 

It was Jones who briefed the RAF expert who dropped by parachute on to the Bruneval radar site, in February 1942, to dismantle a German radar device and bring it back for inspection. It was Jones who, after years of struggle, convinced Bomber Command that pilots who left their IFF (identification friend-or-foe) sets switched on over Germany guided German night fighters on to themselves. It was Jones who played a leading part in discovering what the V-1 and the V-2 were, and how they might best be countered. Several times over, he found himself confronted by Winston Churchill, in meetings of ministers and experts; even Churchill’s personality was not so strong that Jones fell silent in his presence. By standing up to him, he helped to persuade him to give orders on which the nation’s safety turned; though of course he earned enemies for himself among the bureaucrats of Whitehall.

Jones could not work usefully unless he was privy to every secret.

He was cleared to receive messages from the ultra secret decipher service at Bletchley Park; he was cleared to read spies’ reports, as they were received, not in the laundered form in which they reached lesser intelligence officers; he knew a great deal both about impending operations

and about the current organisation of the armed forces, the air force in particular. He knew work was in progress on an atomic bomb. He was a large man, broad- shouldered and over six feet tall, with a strong voice when he cared to raise it. Moreover, he had a disconcerting habit of usually being in the right, as well as displaying admirable manners when he was in the wrong – as of course he sometimes was.

Someone at Aberdeen University must have really hated Coventry

where he spent 35 years as Professor of Natural Philosophy, teaching generations of undergraduates and research students who appreciated his wit, his knowledge, and his enormous fund of common sense. He was fond of quoting Crow’s Law – “Do not believe what you want to believe until you know what you ought to know.”

But you won’t know what you ought to know until you know it…

When Churchill came back into office in 1951, he tried to recall Jones to Whitehall; an embarrassed year in 1952-53 as director of scientific intelligence at the Ministry of Defence resulted.

Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate Dai Bananas was presiding over MI5 then, so I wonder what the embarrassment was.

Long afterwards, Jones explained that intelligence could not usefully be organised in committees of fairly senior officers who knew nothing about the subject in detail; and he left official life for academia. He did notable work for the Royal Society, and belonged to institutes and academies for the promotion of electronic research, almost without number. He wrote numerous scientific papers, and papers on the history of science, as well as two remarkable studies in the practice of his wartime craft: Most Secret War (1978, called in America ‘The Wizard War’); and Reflections on Intelligence (1989).

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

They are much the best and fullest books ever to have appeared on the wartime secret service’s workings.

At the age of 80, he lost in a fortnight his wife of over 50 years and one of his daughters;

That was in 1991, the year that my career was destroyed, as were the careers of at least two other witnesses. Peter Morrison was given a K by Lilibet in Feb 1991 and a few other paedophiles’ friends bagged honours as well. Conversely there were a few deaths of insiders, at least some of which were very obviously the result of Top Docs who would not attend to people who were clearly seriously ill.

he went on writing learned articles all the same, a model to younger scholars of devotion to even temper, good-humour and scientific truth.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

R.V. Jones’s colleague Joan Elizabeth Curran (nee Strothers) (26 February 1916-10 February 1999) was from Swansea! Joan Elizabeth Strothers was the daughter of an optician, Charles William Strothers and his wife, Margaret Beatrice. Joan was educated at Swansea Girls’ High School and in 1934 won an open scholarship to Newnham College, Cambridge. She gained a physics degree but it was not awarded because when Joan passed her finals, Cambridge would not let Ladies graduate. In her 70s, in 1987, Joan was honoured with the degree of Doctor of Laws honoris causa by the University of Strathclyde.

At one point Joan was named in a media article as being one of 900 Cambridge Wimmin who finally attained Equality. The University of Strathclyde in 1987 would never discriminate against Ladies, in particular the Lady who was married to the VC of the University of Strathclyde, 1964-80, who happened to be one Lady Joan Curran.

The Men Who Made Joan’s Equality Possible:

Royal College Personalities

Sir Samuel Curran, Lord Reith and Sir Andrew McCance about to present awards to students at the Royal College of Science and Technology, 1963.

Samuel Curran (left) was an eminent scientist who had worked on the atomic bomb Manhattan Project and with the Atomic Energy Authority before becoming Principal of the Royal College of Science and Technology in 1959. He played a major role in the establishment of the University of Strathclyde, and served as its first Principal from 1964 until his retirement in 1980, when the Curran Building was named after him.

John Reith (centre) was educated at Glasgow Academy and graduated as an engineer at the Royal Technical College. As founding Director-General of the BBC from 1922 to 1938, he exerted a major influence on the early years of broadcasting, emphasising standards and a high moral tone. The annual Reith Lectures were established by the BBC in 1947 in his honour. He was elected Rector of the University of Glasgow, 1965-1968.

Lord Reith was famous for being seriously weird and seriously intimidating. While he was DG of the BBC, imploring it to educate and inform, the BBC VIP paedophile ring was in its embryonic stages.

Andrew McCance was a distinguished metallurgist and businessman, who was Chairman of Colvilles. A graduate of the Royal Technical College, he was the College’s last Chairman of the Board of Governors, 1950-1964. His role in the transformation of the College into the University of Strathclyde was recognised in the naming of the McCance Building.

Joan Strothers was awarded a Gov’t grant to study for a higher degree and elected to go to the Cavendish Lab at Cambridge, where she joined the man whom she later married Sam Curran in a team under the direction of Philip Dee.

My post ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’ discusses the cheating, research fraud and plagiarism that took place at the Cavendish Lab, including that of James Watson who bagged the Nobel Prize for elucidating the structure of DNA.

Prof Philip Ivor Dee CBE (8 April 1904-17 April 1983) was responsible for the development of airborne radar during WW II. Glasgow University named the Philip Ivor Dee Memorial Lecture after him.

Dee was born in Stroud, Gloucestershire, the son of Albert John Dee, a schoolmaster. He was educated at Marling School and then studied at Cambridge University where he graduated MA in 1926. Dee thereafter took on research roles, initially as a student of Charles Thomson Rees Wilson at the Cavendish Lab, during which time Samuel Curran worked under him.

Dee was elected FRS in 1941 and won its Hughes Medal in 1952. During WW II, he initially worked in the Ministry of Aircraft Production and in 1940 moved to the Telecommunications Research Establishment. Dee led the team which developed the Village Inn radar system.

In 1945, Dee became Professor of Natural Philosophy at Glasgow University. He was created a CBE in the 1946 Birthday Honours, having already been appointed an OBE in the 1943 Birthday Honours. In the same year Dee received Gov’t funding to build equipment to investigate particle physics and placed Glasgow University as a world authority in that field during the 1950s.

In 1946 Philip Dee was also elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. His proposers were Thomas Alty, John Walton, Edward Provan Cathcart, and Sir Robert Muir. He was awarded the Society’s Gunning Victoria Jubilee Prize for 1958-1962 in recognition of his work on nuclear physics. By which time thanks to Philip Dee’s wider network, this man had retrained as a Top Doc after a ‘career as an atomic scientist’, following his early years migrating around Bethesda when he/his family were moved on by the bailiffs and then being thrown out of a chemistry degree in disgrace:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

Philip Dee retired in 1972 and received an honorary doctorate (DSc) from Strathclyde University in 1980, the year that his mate and former junior colleague Sam Curran retired as VC of Strathclyde. Dee died in Glasgow on 17 April 1983. His obituary was written by Sir  Samuel Curran FRS.

Dee married Phyllis Elsie Tyte in 1929.

Another online biography supplies a few more details re Philip Dee:

Philip Ivor Dee… was educated at Marling School, Stroud and Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, where he gained the degree of MA. In 1929 he married Phyllis Elsie Tyte, and had two daughters. From 1930 until 1933 he was Stokes Student at Pembroke College, Cambridge, and from 1934 until 1943 he was Lecturer in Physics at Cavendish Laboratory and Fellow of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. At the Cavendish Laboratory he worked closely with Charles Thomson Rees Wilson (1869-1959), Professor of Natural Philosophy. Under Wilson’s direction he became responsible for the development of the 1 million volt H T set and with the direction of its experimental programme. From 1939-1945 he was Superintendent of the Telecommunications Research Establishment at the Ministry of Aircraft Production, at Swanage and Malvern, and was responsible for the development of the use of the magnetron for centimetric radar… In 1943 he was appointed Regius Professor of Natural Philosophy at the University of Glasgow, becoming Professor Emeritus on his retirement in 1972. Soon after his appointment he secured funds from the University and the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research for the purchase of an HT set similar to that at Cambridge, and later for a 300 MeV electron synchrotron. He personally supervised the design and construction of the synchrotron, which was completed in 1954. In the mid-1960s the synchrotron was replaced by an electron linear accelerator, which was installed at the Kelvin Laboratories at East Kilbride. He was a member of the Advisory Council of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research from 1947-1952…

Observations: Harold Wilson’s mate Asa Briggs who kept the lid on the Brighton end of Dafydd and Gwynne’s operation when Asa worked as Sussex University was an alumnus of Sidney Sussex, Cambridge. Asa went to war on Merfyn who later became VC of Bangor University when Merfyn was an undergrad in 1968, after Merfyn and his mates staged an anti-Vietnam protest. Asa bore a lifelong grudge and was happy to swing into action again when Merfyn became VC of Bangor decades later. See eg. ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’. Asa graduated from Sidney Sussex in 1941 and was an Honorary Fellow from 1968. Briggs served in the Intelligence Corps, 1942-45 and worked at Bletchley Park. While there, he became friends with Howard Smith, who in 1979 became Director of MI5. Asa was one of those who used the security services to conceal serious crime.

Philip Dee sat on the Advisory Council of the Dept of Scientific and Industrial Research during the premiership of Clement Attlee.

In 1939, Philip Dee proposed that the team spend a month at the  Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough Airfield. They arrived on 1 September 1939. Two days later, Britain declared war on Germany, and Britain entered WW II. Instead of returning to the Cavendish Lab, the team moved to Exeter where Dee and three others worked on developing rockets as anti-aircraft weapons, while Joan Strothers and Sam Curran joined a group under John Coles working on the development of the proximity fuse. Strothers was based at Leeson House and Durnford School. Joan and Sam Curran developed a workable fuse, which was codenamed VT. Britain lacked the capacity to mass-produce the VT fuse, so the design was shown to the United States by the Tizard Mission in late 1940. The Americans perfected and mass-produced the fuse. In due course, these proximity fuses arrived in the United Kingdom, where they played an important part in the defence of the kingdom against the V-1 flying bomb.

Strothers married Curran on 7 November 1940. Soon afterwards they were transferred to the Telecommunications Research Establishment (TRE) near Swanage. It was with this group, at Swanage and later at Malvern, that Joan devised the technique that was codenamed Window, also known as chaff ie. radar reflectors that could be scattered from bombers, thus disrupting the enemy’s radar.

R.V. Jones later declared: “In my opinion, Joan Curran made an even greater contribution to victory, in 1945, than Sam.”

See the source image

In early 1944 the Currans were part of a group of British scientists invited to go to the US to take part in the Manhattan Project, the Allied project to develop an atomic bomb. They joined the British Mission at the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory, California, headed by Mark Oliphant, an Australian scientist who Joan knew from the Cavendish Laboratory. Oliphant also acted as de facto deputy to Ernest Lawrence, the Director of the Radiation Laboratory.

Mark Oliphant was one of the biggest names in terms of the Famous Scientists with Gwynne and Gwynne connections via Patrick Blackett et al, as discussed in my post ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’.

While at Berkeley, Joan gave birth to her first child, a daughter, Sheena, who was born severely mentally handicapped. The Currans later had three sons, all of whom went on to complete a PhD.

After the war ended, Sam took up an offer from Philip Dee to take up a Chair at Glasgow University. In Glasgow, the Currans, together with a few friends, set up the Scottish Society for the Parents of Mentally Handicapped Children (Enable), which eventually grew to 100 branches and more than 5000 members. Later, when Joan was a member of the Greater Glasgow Health Board and the Scottish Special Housing Association, the needs of the disabled were always at the forefront of her mind and she did much to promote their welfare. So why the disabled, including those with what were then called mental handicap and people with mental health problems, were so badly abused and neglected one can only wonder. Joan was a member of the Greater Glasgow Health Board when R.D. Laing Made A Stand with regard to the dreadful treatment of psych patients and others. Previous posts have discussed how Laing’s desire to hang out with those from the counter-culture, including Bertrand Russell’s mates from Croesor, rather got in the way of Laing’s reforming zeal. It inspired Dafydd though, at one point Dafydd was a Laingian. See previous posts.

Dafydd had a whole collection of mates who hampered Joan Curran’s liberation of the disabled in Glasgow because as any fule kno, THEY transformed the care of the oppressed! There was for example Prof Jerry Morris, Kay Carmichael, Janey Buchan, David Donnison and at a later date Sam Galbraith! Many of the crowd doubled up as Labour politicians and Janey was mates with Nelson Mandela. See eg. ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’. Those in the Gorbals were in bloody clover, the best health and social care in the world.

Where would they have been without Joan?

As well as her roaring success in other domains, Joan Curran took a close interest in the work of the Council for Access for the Disabled and helped improve the range of facilities, especially for disabled university students, which will have been why even in the early 1980s, facilities for disabled university students were virtually non-existent.

Sam Curran worked at the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment at Aldermaston on the development of the British H bomb, 1955-59.

Here’s Bertrand sitting in the road in Feb 1961, protesting about nukes, in particular Aldermaston:

Image result for bertrand russell aldermaston march images

Bertrand leading this protest in Feb 1961 and he and his mates in CND becoming particularly militant at about this time might be the cause for the mystery discussed in previous posts, ie. that of Minister of Health Enoch Powell making a big thing of visiting the North Wales Hospital in early 1961, telling them that he was horrified at what they were doing to people and would not allow them to do it any longer. He returned to London and made his well-publicised speech to the National Association of Mental Health (MIND), which was run by Dafydd and Gwynne and announced the closure of every mental hospital in the country. Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate Lord Robert Balniel, a leading light in MIND and a Tory politician, was in the audience. Powell didn’t close any asylums and his ‘Hospital Plan’ was quietly rewritten with this proposal dropped. Powell never returned to the subject again although he remained Minister of Health throughout the Profumo Affair with which Dafydd and Gwynne were involved in some way. See previous posts…

For a long while I presumed that someone had leaned on Powell and told him to leave Gwynne and Dafydd alone. Then I realised that Powell’s Denbigh visit and his much publicised horror were part of an elaborate charade in response to something that had happened with regard to Dafydd and Gwynne but I didn’t know what.

I presume that it was Bertrand Russell; there he was fomenting revolution and leading marches which ended in confrontations with the police and people being jailed when there were more than a few people who knew that Denbigh was the Final Solution for anyone who dared complain about his sexual exploits/assaults on people, along with those committed by his mates and others in High Places.

Since the Westminster Paedophile Ring has become a topic of discussion, one name that has been repeatedly suggested as having been a member is Enoch Powell. Powell was certainly an odd man who had difficulty in his relationships with women and as a young man had very close relationships with other men which could well have been sexual. That does not mean that Enoch Powell was a child molester or having sex with people who did not want to have sex with him, but it does place him as yet another Cabinet Minister/public figure who was part of an overtly homophobic establishment that was excluding and jailing some gay men, ‘treating’ them for homosexuality, yet concealing Dafydd and Gwynne who ran a paedophile ring targeting boys.

I will correlate the dates of Russell’s revolutionary fervour and re-read information about Enoch Powell etc and return to this in a future post.

Bertrand Russell’s anti-nuclear activities might also explain why Harold Macmillan visited Denbighshire in the early 1960s for a bit of spontaneous campaigning on behalf of the Tory Party and why Cymro 007 aka Geraint Morgan QC, the Tory candidate for Denbigh, was assisted in winning the seat in 1959 by  help from the National Liberals. See previous posts eg. ‘Cymro 007’.

Previous posts including ‘Captain Swing and His Crew’ and ‘A Message Of Peace At Christmas’ discussed Bertrand Russell’s mates in CND, the Committee of 100 etc, some of whom were working for the security services. When I interviewed people in the Croesor area a few years ago, a number of them mentioned someone called Ralph Schoenman, an American activist who acted as Bertrand Russell’s Secretary and became General Secretary of the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation. A number of people didn’t like Schoenman but wouldn’t expand on why. Russell publicly repudiated his relationship with Schoenman in December 1969 and had him removed from the Board of the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation. Schoenman then renamed the American branch of the foundation the American Foundation for Social Justice and continued to promote hearings into alleged American atrocities in Vietnam.

Recently I received info that Schoenman might have had something to do with rather worrying Bertrand Russell-esque sexual activities. Whether he was directly involved or not, Schoenmen was in north Wales long enough to know about Gwynne and Dafydd. See previous posts for info re Schoenman.

 

Now readers mustn’t worry that Gwynne and Dafydd may have had divided loyalties, the beauty of Dafydd and Gwynne was that they provided services to unscrupulous offenders across the political and cultural spectrum. In the way that Dafydd became a Laingian while Gwynne lobotomised, Dafydd and Gwynne were happy to provide services to Bertrand and pals who were on the Aldermaston marches as well as to those building and dropping bombs, as discussed in ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’.

Dafydd let it all hang out at times what with his Beatles connections:

Sam Curran returned to Glasgow in 1959 as Principal the Royal College of Science and Technology. When it became the University of Strathclyde in 1964 Sam became its first Principal and Vice Chancellor. While her husband was Principal, Joan founded the Strathclyde Women’s Group and became its President. I am glad that Joan received that honorary Doctor of Laws from Strathclyde because of her own contribution to Strathclyde and not because she was married to the VC.

During WW II, the Polish 1st Armoured Division had been based in Scotland, establishing ties between the community and Poland. Joan promoted a special relationship with the Technical University of Lodz, and also devoted care and attention to the children’s hospital of that city.

Lodz soon benefited from Joan’s Midas Touch:

Image result for lodz children's hospital images

Later Joan established the Lady Curran Endowment fund for overseas, particularly Polish, students.

Sir Sam Curran died on 25 February 1998. While gravely ill with cancer in 1998, Joan unveiled a memorial plaque in Barony Hill, Glasgow, to commemorate her husband and it was announced that the walled garden at Ross Priory, on Loch Lomondside, was to be named in her honour and that the Joan Curran Summer House would be built there. That told those who had Lied To Get Compensation at the Waterhouse Inquiry the year previously where to go.

Dogs and Cats » 60g Tub

Previous posts have discussed the extraordinary upturn in the fortunes of a jobbing Top Doc who used to work at the Hergest Unit, Gwen Jones-Edwards, who made a rapid exit from north Wales during the Waterhouse Inquiry and re-emerged a few years later as Clinical Director of Southern General, the enormous flagship neurosurgery hospital in Glasgow, one of the best in Western Europe. Gwen wasn’t even a neurosurgeon so one can only marvel at her good fortune. Gwen was last heard of living in style in a splendid house on the banks of Loch Lomond.

Joan Curran died on 10 February 1999. Her daughter, Sheena, three sons and three grandsons survived her.

So Sam and Joan were both safely out of the way by the time that Ronnie Waterhouse showed the draft of his Report to Insiders before it was published in Feb 2000. There were of course the plaques and buildings to remind us of their achievements in the face of all those who were Lying To Get Compensation.

Tam Dalyell aka Sir Thomas Dalyell of the Binns, Richard Crossman’s pal who worked for the security services and could never inflict the damage on Thatch that he desired because he was so busy concealing the Labour Party’s role in the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see previous posts), wrote Joan Curran’s obituary for the Indie, which was published on

IN THE summer parliamentary recess shortly after I was elected as MP for West Lothian in 1962,

The security services ensured that Tam O’ the Binns was in the Commons when the Profumo Affair was brewing and in the year that Macmillan was obliged to throw so many of Dafydd and Gwynne’s mates out of the Cabinet during the Night of the Long Knives because they were causing so much trouble. See previous posts.

Tam O’ the Binns, such a principled man, he never stopped snapping at Thatch’s ankles re the Belgrano:

Tam Dalyell 1991.jpg

I was invited to lunch by Sam Curran, then the Principal of the Royal College of Science and Technology in Glasgow, as a new Scottish MP interested in science. On the right-hand side of our hostess, opposite me, was placed R.V. Jones, the Assistant Director of Intelligence – and from 1946 to 1952 Director of Intelligence – at the Air Ministry. Our seemingly reticent hostess listened politely to Jones’s conversation, spattered as it was with technical illusions. She said little and nodded sagely. After lunch Jones said to me, “I saw you wondering. No mere dutiful wife she! In my opinion, Joan Curran made an even greater contribution to victory, in 1945, than Sam.”

The dinner party book cover.jpg

Judy Chicago’s ‘The Dinner Party’ is considered an epic feminist installation work. I know that Tam O’ the Binns was at a luncheon party rather than a dinner party, but if you come from the mean streets of Somerset, luncheon was dinner. Not that it will have been for Tam O’ the Binns, he went to Eton, so he could well have experienced luncheon ladies rather than dinner ladies. Or very probably luncheon men.

As M.R.D. Foot put it, opening Jones’s own obituary [19 December 1997], “R.V. Jones was one of the main wizards during the secret war against Hitler, became a pillar of scientific education, and wrote some notable books.” Jones was in a position to know.

As I got to know the Currans better, Sam never missed the opportunity to point out that Joan had indeed made a greater contribution than he had in his work previous to or during the Manhattan Project, and was a formidable scientist in her own right.
Image result for millie tant images
In old age the way in which they looked after each other in their Glasgow Anniesland flat was rather sweet. When I was writing an obituary in a hurry of their friend Sir Nevill Mott [12 August 1996], I phoned Sam and he said, “I cannot talk to you until after half an hour; I’m doing my morning bathing of Joan’s eyes.”
Joan’s own care was every bit as good as that enjoyed by the citizens of the Gorbals who’s welfare she had transformed, even after being hindered by the rest of Dafydd’s mates because they were so busy transforming the lives of The Poor as well.
Joan Strothers was born in Swansea, the daughter of an optician…She had the scientific equivalent of gardening green fingers which she would modestly attribute to her father’s interest in her education. From Swansea Girls’ High School she went up to Newnham College, Cambridge, on an open scholarship in 1934.
Swansea and the Gang’s contacts in Swansea will have made maximum use of Joan the Lady Bomber, including in later years when her husband was VC of Strathclyde University.
Encouraged by the Newnham tutor A.C. Davies, after graduation she went to the Cavendish and was assigned to a group working under Philip Dee. In this group was the young Sam Curran with whom she had a romance which was to end in 58 years of supremely successful marriage.
On the outbreak of war the group went to Swanage and then to the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough, where other physicists included Philip Dee, Bernard Lovell and Alan Hodgkin.

R.V. Jones, in his book Most Secret War (1978), identifies the “two major possibilities” for their counter-measures against the Luftwaffe as “jamming and spurious reflectors”… Spurious reflectors would be simpler, and contained an element of hoaxingThey did not get the immediate go-ahead for the use of the reflectors, however. It was not until 1941, as their knowledge of German radar grew, that Jones persuaded Churchill’s adviser Frederick Lindemann to allow trials. These were undertaken, in late 1941 and early 1942, under Robert Cockburn’s direction at Swanage by Mrs Joan Curran. “Her results were all that we expected,” Jones recalled, and she tried various forms of reflector ranging from wires to leaflets, each roughly the size of a page in a notebook, on which, as a refinement, propaganda could be printed… The material was produced and made up into packets each weighing about a pound, and the idea was that the leading aircraft in a bomber stream would throw them out at the rate of one every minute or so, to produce the radar equivalent of a smokescreen, through which succeeding aircraft could fly. So much progress was made, after the years of delay, that by April 1942 enough material had been produced for it to be used by Bomber Command. It was given the code name “Window” by A.P. Rowe, the superintendent of [the Telecommunications Research Establishment] TRE.

The scheme was sanctioned by the chiefs of staff on 27 April 1942. It was the scattering of clouds of this foil by British bombers that confused the German gun-laying radar and provided a measure of protection against flak for the night raids of Bomber Command. Perhaps the greatest success of the work of Joan Curran and her team was its use where foil was dropped with great precision by the Lancasters of 617 Squadron, to synthesise a phantom invasion force of ships in the straits of Dover on the night of 5-6 June 1944. This kept Von Runstedt and his commanders unsure of whether the brunt of the Allied assault would fall on Normandy or in the Pas de Calais.

Early in 1944 Sam Curran was sent to the United States to work on the highly secret Manhattan Project. His wife helped him in his work on the invention of the scintillation counter – a device for measuring radioactivity that is still in use in many scientific laboratories…

As a member of the Greater Glasgow Health Board, Joan championed the needs of the disabled; and as a Scottish constituency MP I know how much she did on the Council for Access for the Disabled, especially helping the disabled to get to university.

Tam O’ the Binns didn’t notice the continued absence of facilities at universities for the disabled after Joan had transformed the landscape.

Among her other interests was the relationship between Strathclyde University (as, under the guidance of Sam Curran, the Royal College of Science and Technology became) and the Technical University of Lodz in Poland…In later life, this distinguished scientist had played a wonderful role in welcoming the families of new staff to Strathclyde University. She played a major part in the outstanding success of Strathclyde.

Strathclyde University not only hosted colleagues of Alexis Jay, but also the media academic Colin MacCabe who held a Chair there,  1980-85, as discussed in my post ‘I Spit On Your Grave’. MacCabe has passed through many places where the more powerful members of the Gang’s network can be found, including Cambridge University, Exeter University and Birkbeck. Colin did very well out of his connections with academics at Stirling University and people there who knew what the Gang got up to in my direction. Colin spent a number of years in a senior position at the BFI (British Film Institute). Since 1986 he has been a Prof at the University of Pittsburgh and is currently visiting Professor of English at UCL and at the Birkbeck Institute.

Lord Alexander Todd, a chemist who was a Gov’t adviser and one of those in grandiose Cambridge academic places who Knew About Dafydd and Gwynne, was appointed Chancellor of Strathclyde University in 1970. See post eg. ‘The Two Culture Of Organised Abuse’.

 

Joan Curran was also the subject of an obituary published in the Herald Scotland:

IT is difficult to separate the lives of Joan and Sam Curran. Although they were of very different temperaments, they made a superb team and partnership and were devoted to each other. Nevertheless, it is very important (and Sam always emphasised this) to note that she was a considerable scientist in her own right and in the dark days of the Second World War she, as did Sam, played an important part in the survival of this country...

When Sam was Principal of Strathclyde University he had a very willing helpmate at his side… And she did an enormous amount for many people behind the scenes. Many of us are grateful for many kindnesses, always done without fuss.

Wales Online wheeled Joan out in an article on 8 Jan 2015 as someone from Swansea who should be remembered. Lord Brian Flowers was of course Lord Science who grew up and went to school in Swansea and forever after made himself useful to the Gang and Gwerin.

Image result for edwina hart images

Brian Flowers was a nuclear physicist but reached senior management positions at Imperial and then in the wider London University, serving as VC of both Manchester and London Universities. Flowers concealed en masse research fraud, patient harm and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts.

Sir Samuel Crowe Curran (23 May 1912-25 February 1998), was the first Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Strathclyde University, the first of the new technical universities in Britain. To date, Curran remains the longest serving Principal and Vice Chancellor of the University of Strathclyde, holding the post for a total of 16 years. Samuel Curran was born on 23 May 1912 at Ballymena in N Ireland, the son of John Hamilton Curran (from Kinghorn in Fife) and his wife Sarah. The family moved to Scotland soon after for his father to work as foreman of a steelworks near Wishaw. Sam had three brothers, Robert, Hamilton and John. After Wishaw High School, Sam completed his first degree in maths and a PhD in physics at Glasgow University, before taking a second PhD at the Cavendish Lab as a member of St John’s College, Cambridge. Dafydd and Gwynne’s Clever Nuclear Scientist friend Sir John Cockcroft was an alumnus of St John’s College, Cambridge, as was Maurice Wilkins, who shared the Nobel Prize with Francis Crick and James Watson for the work that Rosalind Franklin had carried out. See post ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’. Ronnie Waterhouse passed through St John’s College Cambridge and was an enthusiastic member of the alumni association; Ronnie was also in the RAF…

At the start of WW II, Sam Curran and Joan Strothers went to work at the TRE on radar  development. In 1944, Curran moved to the University of California, Berkeley, to participate in the Manhattan Project. After the war Curran worked at the University of Glasgow and at the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment at Aldermaston.

In 1947 Sam Curran was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. His proposers were Thomas Alty, Philip Dee, Robert A Houston and James W Cook. In 1953 Curran became FRS.

In 1959, Curran took up the position of Principal of the Royal College of Science and Technology in Glasgow which he led to full university status in 1964 as Strathclyde University. Curran was knighted in 1970. He remained at the University until his retirement in 1980, when he was succeeded in the role by Graham Hills.

Sam was the recipient of at least five honorary doctorates including an LLD from both Glasgow and Aberdeen Universities. Curran was the recipient of the 1976 St Mungo Prize, awarded to the individual who has done most in the previous three years to improve and promote the city of Glasgow.

Following the birth of a handicapped daughter, the Currans set up the Scottish Association of Parents of Handicapped Children, now known as ‘Enable’, with Samuel Curran serving as its President, 1964-1991. That will explain why provision for handicapped children throughout those years was just so dire. The norm was for them to be institutionalised in establishments in which abuse and neglect was rampant and continued even when parents and others did everything possible to flag it up. Handicapped children were often targeted by abusers who knew that they could do anything and would not be held to account. Jimmy Savile knew which side his bread was buttered.

Samuel Curran died on 15 February 1998 in hospital in Glasgow, aged 85.

 

Curran’s colleague Sir Alfred Charles Bernard Lovell (31 August 1913-6 August 2012) was the first Director of Jodrell Bank Observatory, 1945-80. Lovell was born at Oldland Common, Bristol. Lovell had a Methodist upbringing, as did Thatch, George Thomas, Harold Wilson’s wife Mary and so many of the Gang, the Gwerin and their network, because of the political and cultural domination of Nonconformity in north Wales. Former Methodist missionaries with international connections were also members of Dafydd and Gwynne’s support network eg. the Rev/Prof Alwyn Roberts at UCNW and Top Doc William aka Bill Beer and his wife Joan Beer. See previous posts eg. ‘Meet The Gwerin!’, ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’ and ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’.

Bernard Lovell attended Kingswood Grammar School, Bristol. Lovell studied at Bristol University, obtaining his first degree in 1934 and his PhD in 1936. Lovell was a keen player of the church organ and when at Bristol University he also received organ lessons from Raymond Jones, a teacher at Bath Technical School and later organist at Bath Abbey. Previous posts have discussed the problem of organised abuse among clergy in Somerset which during the 1960 and 70s at least was concealed by the Bishop of Bath and Wells.

Lovell worked at Manchester University until the outbreak of WW II, during which he worked for the TRE developing radar systems for aircraft. In June 1942 Lovell was involved in the recovery of a highly secret cavity magnetron from the wreckage of a Handley Page Halifax that had crashed killing a number of his colleagues, including EM engineer Alan Blumlein, while on a test flight.

At the end of WW II, Lovell attempted to continue his studies of cosmic rays with an ex-military radar detector unit, but suffered much background interference from the electric trams in Manchester. He moved his equipment to a more remote location, one which was free from such electrical interference and where he established the Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire. It was an outpost of Manchester University’s Dept of Botany.

Prof Peter Greig-Smith who spent years as a Prof in the Dept of Plant Biology at UCNW spent his earlier career after Cambridge Universty in the Dept of Botany at Manchester. Greig-Smith was a member of the Gang’s support network and he was friends with the Cambridge botanist Edred Henry Corner, who was Douglas Hurd’s uncle. See eg.’Additional Security Measures’.

With Manchester University funding, Bernard Lovell constructed the then-largest steerable  radio telescope in the world, which now bears his name, the Lovell Telescope. Over 50 years later it remains a productive radio telescope, now operated mostly as part of the MERLIN and European VLBI Network interferometric arrays of radio telescopes.

In 2009, Lovell claimed that he had been the subject of a Cold War assassination attempt during a 1963 visit to the Soviet Deep-Space Communication Centre. Lovell alleged that his hosts tried to kill him with a lethal radiation dose because he was Head of the Jodrell Bank space telescope when it was also being used as part of an early warning system for Soviet nuclear attacks. Lovell wrote a full account of the incident which, at his determination, was only published after his death.

In 1958, Lovell was invited by the BBC to deliver the annual Reith lectures, a series of six radio broadcasts called The Individual and the Universe, in which he examined the history of enquiry into the solar system and the origin of the universe.

In 1965 Lovell was invited to co-deliver the Royal Institution Christmas Lecture on Exploration of the Universe.

In 1975 Lovell gave the Presidential address (In the Centre of Immensities) to the British Association meeting in Guildford.

Lovell won numerous awards, including:

  • 1946 – OBE, for his work on H2S
  • 1955 – Elected FRS
  • 1960 – Royal Medal
  • 1961 – Knight Bachelor

Lovell was a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

Lovell has a secondary school named after him in Bristol, which he officially opened. A building on the QinetiQ site in Malvern is also named after him, as was the fictional scientist Bernard Quatermass, the hero of several BBC TV science-fiction serials of the 1950s, whose first name was chosen in honour of Lovell.

Just days ago it was announced that Jodrell Bank has now been awarded UNESCO status.

In 1937, Lovell married Mary Joyce Chesterman (d. 1993) and they had two sons and three daughters. In later life Lovell was physically very frail; he lived in quiet retirement and died at home in Swettenham, Cheshire on 6 August 2012.

Bernard Lovell’s son Bryan is a geologist who is featured on the webpages of Cambridge University’s BP Institute for Multiphase Flow: ‘The University of Cambridge BP Institute was established in 2000 by a generous endowment from BP, which has funded faculty positions, support staff and the Institute Building, in perpetuity. The Institute research focuses on fundamental problems in multiphase flow and is highly interdisciplinary, spanning six University Departments.’

Research
Plumes or hotspots are significant features of Earth’s convecting mantle. Their behaviour may be studied by analysing their control of elevation of Earth’s surface. Specifically, they have notable effects on regional sea-levels. These changes in relative sea-level may be measured in the sedimentary record preserved on the margins of continents. These studies throw light on two main areas of Earth Science: ◾ flow in mantle plumes
◾ the mechanism of control of high-frequency changes in sea-level, especially in non-glacial times.

Bryan’s webpage also provides details of some of his publications; interested readers can therefore discover with whom Bryan has worked and of course other webpages provide details of Bryan’s colleagues at the part of Cambridge University bankrolled by BP. BP have obviously given Cambridge a lot of money, there’s quite a crowd working at the BP Institute.

The Head of the BP Institute for Multiphase Flow is Prof Andy Woods. Andy spent a few years as Prof of Applied Maths at D.G.E. Wood’s alma mater, Bristol University, which hosted that network of Top Docs and other academics who were facilitating the south west arm of Wood’s trafficking business, including statisticians who had access to the confidential data of thousands of vulnerable people as discussed in previous posts. It was in 2000, the year that Ronnie Waterhouse published his Report, that Andy was appointed Head of the BP Institute. Andy is a Professorial Fellow of St John’s College, Cambridge, Ronnie’s old college.

Another one of the crowd was Sir Alan Lloyd Hodgkin (5 February 1914-20 December 1998), a physiologist and biophysicist who shared the 1963 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Andrew Huxley and John Eccles. Hodgkin was born in Banbury, Oxfordshire. He was educated at The Downs School near Malvern, Gresham’s School, and Trinity College, Cambridge.

During WW II, Hodgkin volunteered on Aviation Medicine at Farnborough and was subsequently transferred to the TRE where he worked on the development of centimetric radar, including the design of the Village Inn airborne gun-laying system.

As WW II ended in 1945, Hodgkin joined the Physiology Department in Cambridge University. He was the Foulerton Professor of the Royal Society, 1951-69. Hodgkin served on the Royal Society Council, 1958-60 and on the Medical Research Council, 1959-63. He was foreign secretary of the Physiological Society, 1961-67, when Gov’t Ministers, including Enoch Powell, very firmly sat on the outrage that was Dafydd and Gwynne and were amply assisted by Top Docs crowing about their Expertise and refusing to expose Gwynne and Dafydd’s criminal blundering idiocy.

Hodgkin was appointed the John Humphrey Plummer Professor of Biophysics at Cambridge University in 1970.

Hodgkin also held additional administrative posts including Chancellor, Leicester University, 1971-84 and Master, Trinity College, Cambridge, 1978-85, succeeding Rab Butler.

Greville Janner was elected as the Labour MP for Leicester North West in June 1970. The Leicestershire ring had been in operation for decades and was concealed by among other institutions, Leicester University. One part of Leicester University that was particularly culpable was the Medical School, the Dean of which for many years was Lord Robert Kilpatrick. Kilpatrick was a Scottish Top Doc who before Leicester served as Dean of Sheffield Medical School. In 1989 Kilpatrick was headhunted by the GMC to become their Chairman, as the police investigation into Frank Beck, Greville Janner and others in Leicestershire was underway. Kilpatrick was in place at the GMC in time to conceal the leading role played by Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain in the wrongdoing at St George’s Hospital Medical School. Even in retirement, Kilpatrick was working his butt off to conceal the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the Top Docs’ considerable role in it. See post ‘Remember Girls – Never Get Into A Car With A Stranger!’. Other parts of Leicester University were also colluding with the ring, including the social scientists, educationists, humanities and media academics. See eg. ‘Radical Leicester and Other Free Radicals’ and ‘Life In Cold Blood’.

Cambridge was the location of an elite ring and Trinity College in particular educated/employed many people who concealed it. Rab Butler was one of those who colluded for years, as Master of Trinity but also in his many other roles. Matters were considerably assisted by Bertrand Russell’s association with Trinity and so many people who worked for the security services. And of course Carlo’s presence there, 1968-71. See previous posts.

With Andrew Huxley, Alan Hodgkin developed an action potential theory of nerve impulse transmission, the ‘voltage clamp’.

Image result for ann elk brontosaurus theory images

The experiments started at Cambridge University in 1935 with the frog sciatic nerve and Huxley and Hodgkin continued their work using squid giant axons at the Marine Biological Association Laboratory in Plymouth. In 1939, reporting work done in Plymouth, Alan Hodgkin and Andrew Huxley published a short paper in ‘Nature’, announcing their achievement of recording action potentials from inside a nerve fibre. Research was interrupted by WW II but after resuming their experimental work in Plymouth, Hodgkin and Huxley published their theory in 1952 in a series of publications.

Image result for ann elk brontosaurus theory images

Hodgkin and Huxley established the propagation mechanism of nerve impulse and in addition their findings led them to hypothesize the existence of ion channels on cell membranes, which were only confirmed decades later leading to a Nobel prize in 1991 for Erwin Neher and Bert Sakmann, and in 2003 for Roderick MacKinnon.

Image result for ann elk brontosaurus theory images

Erwin Neher began the work that led to his Nobel Prize when he was at Yale University in the late 1970s. In 1983, Neher became a Director at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Gottingen and led the Department for Membrane Biophysics. He has been an Emeritus Director of the Institute since 2011. Neher is also a Professor Emeritus at the University of Göttingen and a Co-chair of the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, Gottingen. Erwin is married to Dr. Eva-Maria Neher (née Ruhr, born 22 November 1950). She founded the Göttingen Xlab and has been its Executive Director since 2000. The Göttingen Xlab is an experimental laboratory for training young people from student to scientist level.

Bert Sakmann is a Top Doc who after completing his medical exams at Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, became a medical assistant in 1968 at Munich University, while also working as a scientific assistant (Wissenschaftlicher Assistant) at Munich’s Max-Planck-Institut für Psychiatrie, in the Neurophysiology Department under Otto Detlev Creutzfeldt. In 1971 Sakmann moved to UCL where he worked in the Department of Biophysics under Bernard Katz. In 1974, he completed his medical dissertation in the Medical Faculty of Göttingen University. Sakmann then returned to the lab of Otto Creutzfeldt, who had meanwhile moved to the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Gottingen. Bert Sakmann was Professor at Heidelberg University and is an Emeritus Scientific Member of the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg, Germany. Since 2008 Sakmann has led an Emeritus research group at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology. On 2 June 2009, Dr. Peter Gruss, the President of the Max Planck Society, announced that Sakmann would serve as the Scientific Director of the Max Planck Florida Institute, the organization’s biomedical research facility at Florida Atlantic University in Jupiter, Florida.

Roderick MacKinnon is co-inventor with his friend and scientific collaborator, neurobiologist Bruce Bean of Harvard Medical School of a dietary supplement for treating and preventing muscle cramps; they tested it in clinical trials and are co-founders a company to commercialize their invention, Flex Pharma. Christoph Westphal and Jennifer Cermak were co-founders as well. The company undertook drug development of a formulation of supplement as a drug candidate for neuromuscular disorders like ALS, and raised a $40 million Series A round. The company had a $86 million initial public offering in 2015. In 2016, the company launched “HotShot” as a dietary supplement for endurance athletes. In June 2018 the company halted clinical development of the drug candidate due to tolerability issues, cut its workforce and said it was considering its strategy. In July 2018 MacKinnon resigned from the board of Directors.

Roderick MacKinnon shared the Nobel Prize with Peter Agre.

Peter Agre (born January 30, 1949) is a Top Doc and molecular biologist, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Director of the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute.

In 2009, Agre was elected President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Agre is a Lutheran. He and his wife Mary have three daughters, one son, and two young granddaughters. Agre is an Eagle Scout. Two of Agre’s brothers, also Top Docs and his son Clarke, a public defender, are Eagle Scouts as well.

While serving from 2009 to 2011 as President and Chair of the Board of Advisors of AAAS, Agre became very active in the AAAS Center for Science Diplomacy. Working with AAAS Chief International Officer, Vaughan Turekian and former Scientific Advisor to the U.S. Secretary of State, Norman P. Neureiter, Agre led a series of science diplomacy visits to countries with adversarial relationships to the U.S.

In November 2009, Agre made the first of six trips to Cuba when he led a group of scientists from AAAS to Havana. Two years later, Agre led an extensive series of visits to the Cuban Academy of Sciences and leading Cuban scientific institutions including ELAM (Latin American School of Medicine) Cuba. Invited to lecture at the University of Havana, Agre also met with Fidel Castro. Agre subsequently led another AAAS visit and served as Honorary President of Biotecnologia Habana 2012 and Plenary Lecturer at Quimcuba 2015.

After North Korea aka DPRK rebuffed requests for entry by US organizations, working through the DPRK Ambassador to the UN, an invitation was issued to the Nobel Laureate-led AAAS team in partnership with CRDF Global for a visit hosted by the DPRK State Academy of Sciences in December 2009. Requests to visit 15 research institutes, universities, the Grand People’s Study House and a hospital were all granted. Potential future scientific collaboration in the life sciences such as medicine development and agricultural research received extensive and enthusiastic discussion. A follow up visits by DPRK scientific leadership to the AAAS – CRDF team occurred 15 months later at the Carter Center in Atlanta.

Peter Agre visiting the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology in 2009.

A meeting occurred with the leadership of the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST), a private university founded by a Korean-born American businessman. Agre provided keynote plenary lectures to the 1st International Science Symposium at PUST in 2011 and the 3rd symposium in 2015. Invited to participate in a tour of multiple DPRK universities by four Nobel Laureates in 2016, Agre was unable to attend due to a hospitalization.

A visit by Agre and the AAAS Science Diplomacy team to Myanmar occurred in April 2010. Travel was made to the new capital, Naypyidaw, for formal meetings with the Ministry of Forestry and Ministry of Health to discuss malaria. A meeting with faculty of University of Yangon was also held. Despite continued existence of the junta, meetings with the opposition were arranged in Yangon. Although Aung San Suu Kyi was unavailable as she was still under house arrest, her release occurred six months later.

Meetings with Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi at the New York residence of the Iranian Ambassador to the UN resulted in a June 2012 visit to Tehran by Agre and Norman P. Neureiter. Salehi, a PhD graduate of MIT and former Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, arranged for lectures in multiple universities in Tehran where Agre was appointed Visiting Professor at the Sharif University of Technology and a private meeting was held with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The Nobel-winning globe trotting Mr Big of US medical science is nevertheless uncomfortable in that role. Peter Agre said in an interview with ‘Scouting’ magazine: ‘I identify more with Huckleberry Finn than with Albert Einstein’.

Alan Hodgkin also discovered the cell membrane depolarisation sequence now known as the Hodgkin cycle.

Alan Lloyd Hodgkin, Andrew Fielding Huxley and John Carew Eccles were jointly awarded the 1963 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine “for their discoveries concerning the ionic mechanisms involved in excitation and inhibition in the peripheral and central portions of the nerve cell membrane”. Hodgkin was knighted in 1972 and appointed to the Order of Merit in 1973. He was elected President of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom in 1966.

UCNW/Bangor University has long been proud of its Marine Sciences bit and it is one area in which Bangor has always been considered excellent. Marine Sciences seemed to begin to take off in the 1960s.

Hodgkin was elected FRS in 1948 and served as President of the Royal Society, 1970-75. It was during those years that UNCW saw the expansion in its Marine Biology Dept and the growth in status. After Prof Eric Sunderland made that arrangement in 1984 with Carlo, Thatch and the UGC to let UCNW live to see another day in return for shafting my friends and I (see previous posts), it was the Dept of Psychology and Marine Sciences that blossomed into world-famous empires. I know why Psychology benefited, it was because Fergus Lowe overthrew Dafydd’s influence and then blackmailed and threatened everyone whom he knew had colluded with or concealed Dafydd’s criminality (see eg. ‘Feet In Chains’), but I always wondered who had the Midas touch in Marine Sciences.

The Royal Society awarded Hodgkin its Royal Medal in 1958 and Copley Medal in 1965. Hodgkin was also elected to the American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Philosophical Society, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters, Deutsche Akademie, and Indian National Science Academy. Hodgkin was elected a Foreign Associate of the National Academy of Sciences in 1964.

Sir Andrew Fielding Huxley (22 November 1917-30 May 2012) was a physiologist and biophysicist, born in Hampstead, of the famous Huxley family. See previous posts.

Bertrand Russell’s friend Rupert Crawshay-Williams was the grandson of Marian Huxley, who in turn was the daughter of Thomas Henry Huxley, the T.H. Huxley who was Darwin’s friend and supporter, ‘Darwin’s Bulldog’. Tom Huxley was a Top Doc, naturalist and all rounder who did many extraordinary things and knew many extraordinary people. Institutions with which he was associated such as Charing Cross Hospital (where he trained as a Top Doc) and Imperial College (where Tom Huxley lectured, although it was still known as the School of Mines at the time), max out on their association with Huxley.

Tom Huxley was off to a flying start as a medical student. At Charing Cross, he was taught by Thomas Wharton Jones, Professor of Ophthalmic Medicine and Surgery at UCL. Jones had been Robert Knox‘s assistant when Knox bought cadavers from Burke and Hare. The young Wharton Jones, who acted as go-between, was exonerated of crime, but thought it best to leave Scotland. In 1845, under Wharton Jones’ guidance, Tom Huxley published his first scientific paper. Later in life Huxley organised a pension for his old body snatching tutor…

It was Rupert Crawshay-Williams and his wife Elizabeth who found and recommended to Russell the house near Cwm Croesor where he lived from 1955 until his death in 1970, enabling him to make use of the services provided by Gwynne and Dafydd.

Rupert Crawshay-Williams went to school at Repton and then studied at Queens College, Oxford. Repton educated a number of the grander supporters of the Gang, as discussed in previous posts. Ioan Bowen Rees, the CEO of Gwynedd County Council while the Gang made merry in the Council’s children’s homes, went to Queen’s College, Oxford.

Rupert’s sister Gillian’s second husband was Arthur aka Tony Greenwood, Lord Greenwood. Tony Greenwood was a Labour MP who was a pal of Richard Crossman. Arthur William James Anthony Greenwood, Baron Greenwood of Rossendale, (14 September 1911-12 April 1982) was the son of Arthur Greenwood (Deputy Leader of the Labour Party under Clement Attlee). Tony Greenwood was born in Leeds, educated at Merchant Taylors’ School, and then read PPE at Balliol College, Oxford, where he held the posts of Chairman of the Labour Club and, in 1933, President of the Oxford Union.

Greenwood was part of the Woy/Tony Crosman circle who dominated the Labour Party under Harold Wilson and was well-acquainted with Westminster Swingers/Hypocrites such as Michael Foot and his mates (see eg. post ‘The Bay Of Pigs Invasion’) who lived longer than Richard Crossman and were still getting Dafydd and the Gang out of trouble until very recently.

After Oxford, Greenwood continued with political work, which included debating trips to the USA and some freelance journalism. He began, but did not complete, studies for the Bar at the Middle Temple. Early employment consisted of a spell as economic secretary to an industrialist and then, in 1938-9, work for the National Fitness Council. From 1939 to 1942 Greenwood worked at the Ministry of Information where, in 1941, he became Private secretary to the Director-General Walter Monckton (see eg. The Joys Of Propaganda’ for info re Monckton and his network, including his granddaughter Rosa, who is married to Nigel Lawson’s son Dominic and was close mates with Diana Princess of Wales), with whom he travelled to Russia and the Middle East. In the summer of 1942 Greenwood joined the RAF and in February 1943 was commissioned as an Intelligence Officer. In December 1944 Greenwood was seconded to the War Cabinet Offices, to work with Monckton on an inquiry into the Mulberry harbours.

Greenwood joined the Labour Party at the age of 14 and led the Labour group on Hampstead Borough Council, 1945-49. Greenwood knew the grand old bags who sat on Hampstead Borough Council who were married to Labour Party big wigs eg. Baroness Peggy Jay, Bea Serota etc, who, as discussed in previous posts, were political groupies of Richard Crossman and were manipulated and mobilised by Mandy’s granddad Herbert Morrison to seize control of Hampstead. They all knew about the organised abuse of vulnerable people who were carefully excluded from Hampstead and contained at the wrong side of the tracks in the slum accommodation at St Pancras. The Labour MP for St Pancras North, 1949-70, was Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson, who served as Harold Wilson’s Minister of Health, 1964-68.

The Hampstead crowd knew much about Dafydd and Gwynne’s Gang through the Welsh Bloomsbury Set, many of whom were their friends and neighbours. Kenneth Robinson went to Oundle, the same school as Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, although Robinson was younger than Clough. Previous posts have discussed members of the Oundle network who supported the Gang, which included Harriet Harman’s dad the Top Doc John Harman, Sir Peter Scott (who served as Chancellor of Birmingham University when Dafydd’s mates, including Robert Bluglass ran the place), Lord Newborough aka Micky Wynn and the loony who doubled up as Dean of the Institute of Psychiatry at the Maudsley, David Lewis Davies.

Greenwood entered Parliament as member for Heywood and Radcliffe in Lancashire in Feb 1946. Following boundary changes, Greenwood moved to represent Rossendale in Lancashire, 1950-70. Greenwood was Vice-Chairman of the PLP, 1950-1 and was in the Shadow Cabinet, 1951-52 and 1955-60. Greenwood also served on the Labour Party’s NEC, 1954-60.

Greenwood was the left wing challenger to Hugh Gaitskell in the 1961 leadership election. He served as Secretary of State for the Colonies, 1964-65; Minister of Overseas Development, 1965-66 and Minister for Housing and Local Gov’t, 1966-69, under Wilson. Greenwood succeeded Richard Crossman in the latter post.

On 22 September 1970, Greenwood was created a life peer. From 1977 to 1979 he was Chairman of the Lords Select Committee on the European Communities and Principal Deputy Chairman of Committees.

While in the Lords, Greenwood held a number of business directorships. He remained a member of the Commonwealth Development Corporation Board until 1978; was a Director of the Britannia Building Society from 1972 until his death in 1982 as well as Chairman, 1974-76; Chairman and a Director of Weeks Natural Resources (UK) Ltd., an oil exploration company; Chairman of Greenwood Development Holdings Ltd; Chairman of Integrated Professional Development Service and a Director of Pochin Ltd.

Tony Greenwood also held several public service appointments, such as Chairman of the Local Government Training Board and Staff Commission, President of the Association of Metropolitan Authorities, President of the District Heating Association, President of the Cremation Society of Great Britain, was a member of the Maplin Development Authority Board and Central Lancashire Development Corporation and he became involved in several housing organisations. Greenwood was Pro-Chancellor of the University of Lancaster, 1972-78 and financial adviser for the University of Guyana’s UK appeal. Greenwood became Chairman of the Anglo-Israel Association in 1972, was a Trustee of the Jerusalem Educational Trust and the first Chairman of the Labour Friends of Israel. He gave support to many charitable organisations and was a founding member of CND, an organisation in which Bertrand Russell and his friends/colleagues who lived in the Cwm Croesor area, including Pat Pottle and Michael Randall, played key roles. See post ‘A Message Of Peace At Christmas’ and ‘Stations Of The Crass’.

Previous posts have explained how I noticed that in north Wales no-one involved with CND, no matter how ‘radical’, would do anything to help targets of the Gang. I had always attributed this to the presence of the huge numbers of compromised social workers and Guardian reading classes in CND, I hadn’t realised that it had its origins in Bertrand Russell and E.P. Thompson etc (see ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’).

How did they expect to deal with the threat of nuclear obliteration if they couldn’t deal with Dafydd and Gwynne?

It was madness but if you daft buggers had backed my friends and I up when we gained evidence against Dafydd and Gwynne, the trail would have led to Thatch and she and all of her mates including Shotgun Ronnie would have fallen flat on their faces.

I do apologise, I forgot that you all needed your Funding from Gwynedd County Council/the GLC etc.

Tony Greenwood was Gillian Crawshay-Williams’s second husband; Gillian worked as an Artist. Tony Greenwood died in April 1982 aged 70. In 1982, Gwynne was sitting in the Student Health Centre in UCNW…

The Greenwoods had two daughters, Susanna and Dinah. Dinah Crawshay Greenwood married David Murray and became Dinah Murray. Dinah Murray can be found on the website of the National Autism Project, listed as a Strategy Board Member:

Dinah Murray is an independent researcher and campaigner, former tutor for Birmingham University’s distance learning courses on autism (adults) and former support worker for people with varied learning disabilities, including autism. Tutoring involved reading and critiquing hundreds of practitioner research projects. Her work has been published in Autism, in Good Autism Practice, in a number of books and on-line; she has presented at numerous conferences (world-wide) on varied themes related to autism, including several years of Autscape, an annual conference cum retreat run by and for autistic people. Her autism-related research interests have included: medication and its impact on quality of life; information technology for people who don’t use speech; the ethics of autism research; the nature of the human being, with a particular focus on interests. She has been assessed as on the autism spectrum, and if growing up today would certainly have attracted an autism diagnosis.

Dinah, while having not pursued any solid academic career, seems to have been very influential in the field of autism, including in the liberation of huge quantities of money to fund ‘research’ into autism. Previously on this blog – in comments as well as in posts – I have discussed the vast expansion of the definition of ‘autism’. The reason why in the early-mid 1960s autistic children had such terrible prognoses was that the diagnosis of autism was reserved for children who had a severe but little understood developmental disability. Unless the diagnosis was incorrect, those children often never learned to talk or use the bog etc. It was at a later date that the definition was expanded to include huge numbers of children, some of whom it could be argued were no more than eccentric or even simply responding to extremely stressful situations.

I know parents of autistic children who fall into the severely disabled category who have become very frustrated at the notion that their children must be like Dustin Hoffman in ‘Rain Man’ and can be taught in mainstream schools by people who do not accept that their children have severe limitations, cannot cope in those circumstances and have no understanding of the support that their children need. I have previously discussed some of the very questionable research into autism, including that of Aspergers’ syndrome carried out by Dafydd’s mate at the Maudsley, the clueless Professor Lorna Wing and research by Simon Baron Cohen which relies heavily on quaint notions of gender. Baron Cohen and his colleagues at UCL have enjoyed close professional relationships with academics in the School of Psychology at Bangor University.

While all this expertise in autism/Aspergers abounded, the parents of children with diagnoses on the autistic spectrum, including those in north Wales, were tearing their hair out over the lack of understanding and provision for their kids and a great many withdrew their kids from state schools on the grounds that the damage being inflicted could not be allowed to continue after their pleas for help had been ignored by teachers and educational psychologists.

There was one specialist school for autistic children in Denbighshire of which every parent I met spoke very highly and were keen to send their kids to. I met the Headmaster in 2002 and he gave the impression of being a very knowledgeable, pleasant and competent man. Imagine my surprise when I saw him hit the Welsh media a few years later in the midst of allegations that he had abused children. He was removed as Head and although charges were never brought, I think the school closed. Some time after that I saw his name mentioned in much lower profile information about corruption and malpractice in Denbighshire County Council and Education Authority. He was thanked for his evidence against people who were obliged to resign and it was noted that he had behaved with a great deal of dignity after having been subjected to a smear campaign. It was also noted that he had agreed not to speak to the media about some dreadful practices within Denbighshire County Council for the sake of the privacy of the families involved.

Was it the old story then? Competent person who caught the paedophiles’ friends out subjected to a high profile slander campaign, sacked from his job and a few years later was thanked in the small print for not behaving as disgustingly as everyone else? Or was there substance to the allegations made about him? It was never clear.

I met this Headmaster when I was doing a Masters at the School of Education at Bangor University. It was known that I had enjoyed his lecture, found him interesting and the Gwerin overheard me asking him if I could visit his school and they heard him saying that he’d be delighted… Gwerin also knew that for one of my projects I had interviewed lots of parents who had nothing positive to say at all about SEN provision for their autistic children as provided by Gwynedd Education Authority. I wonder???

Gwerin, do you not understand that no matter how much difficulty you caused for that man, the real losers were the children who lost the one Head who might have known how to make disabled kids comfortable at school? I found it very hard to ascertain what the truth actually was as the shit flew back and forth; did that Head ever do things that he should not have done? Or was he, like me and so many others, the victim of a witch hunt? Are you surprised that no-one will work in north Wales? What is certain is that a gang of sex offenders have dominated the region for decades and it is highly likely that should one cross their path one will find oneself under attack and no-one will ever be able to work out what the hell the truth is.

Denbighshire County Council and their Education Authority were in deep, deep trouble at the time, money disappeared from coffers and there was a spate of resignations. What was known was that the ‘services’ were, as is traditional in Denbighshire, a joke.

 

Perhaps Dinah Murray, daughter of one of the Westminster Swingers who protected Dafydd and Gwynne, might know what the bunfight in Denbighshire was all about.

He taught English and Comparative Literature at the University of Warwick, before returning to Glasgow where he became Professor of English Literature, Dean of the Faculty of Arts, and Senior Vice-Principal. He was then successively Principal of Royal Holloway and Bedford New College and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Liverpool. He has been involved in business and University interaction and in economic regeneration as a member of the CBI’s Science and Innovation Committee, as Chair of the Northern Innovation and Industry Group, and as Chair of the Liverpool ‘European Capital of Culture’ Company. From 2008 to 2011 he was a consultant on internationalisation to universities in the UK and overseas. He chairs the i-Graduate Group and within that the Observatory on Borderless Education. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.

I and my friends derived great entertainment from Drummond when he was VC of Liverpool University. Drummond drives racing cars, is a friend of Miranda and was constantly the subject of flattering profile articles in the ‘Times Higher Education Supplement’ and ‘The Guardian’. We knew someone who worked at Liverpool who told us that things were not quite as Drummond would have us all believe.

Here’s Drummond, the Rock Star among Vice Chancellors:

With Drummond as VC and Dr Death as Chancellor, what could ever have gone wrong at Liverpool University? Meanwhile Liverpool’s finest alumni/affiliates Dafydd and Prof Robert Owen were causing ructions in north Wales and in 2008 their colleagues at the Walton Centre managed to kill Merfyn’s wife.

Never mind, here’s another article about Drummond zooming around in his racing cars and how Liverpool was where it was all at.

Surprise, Surprise!

Here’s another Liver Bird, whom Drummond probably knows quite well:

Personal details
Born 20 May 1943
Political party Liberal Democrats

Iain David Thomas Vallance, Baron Vallance of Tummel (born 20 May 1943) is a Lib Dem politician. Vallance was educated at the Edinburgh Academy, Dulwich College and the Glasgow Academy. In 1965 Vallance graduated from Brasenose College, Oxford. In 1963, Jeffrey Archer enrolled at the Oxford University Dept of Continuing Education for a Diploma in Education and became a member of Brasenose College. There were allegations that Tuppence lied about his qualifications to gain entrance to Brasenose, but as with everything Tuppence, it was robustly denied although Tuppence never managed to provide evidence that he had not told porkies. See my post ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’ for further details of Tuppence and Lady Mary and the ways in which their paths have crossed with those of the Gang’s network.

In 1972, Iain Vallance graduated from the London Business School with a Masters in Business Admin. Vallance worked for the Post Office, 1966-81, including as Director of Central Finance, 1976-78, as Director of Telecommunications Finance, 1978-79 and as Director of the Materials Department, 1979-81. In 1981 Vallance moved to the soon to be privatised British Telecommunications, for which he worked until 2002. After a period in finance, Vallance became Chief of Operations in 1985 and Chief Exec, 1986-95, then Chairman from 1987 until, with many investors calling for his head on a plate, his resignation as Chairman in 2001. Vallance finally served as President Emeritus of BT, 2001-02.

In 1999 Iain Vallance made a speech to the Telecoms Managers Association, which led to him being called the lollipop man:

Iain Vallance: When it comes to the mass deployment of new technology across our network, BT has the unenviable task of the lollipop man. His job is to restrain the over-exuberant children from dashing across the road at will, and to ensure that the crossing is made safely and in an orderly fashion.

In 1995 Vallance was a member of the Greenbury Committee which produced a report Greenbury Report at the behest of the CBI, into executive remuneration. His appointment to the Committee came despite previous controversy over his own pay at BT.

Since 2003 Vallance has been member of the Supervisory Board of Siemens.

Vallance was made a Knight Bachelor in 1994 and was created a life peer on 22 June 2004.

Vallance also received an Honorary Doctorate from  Heriot-Watt University in 1995.

  • It was in 1995 that Patient F and I accidentally discovered that the senior managers of the NHS in north Wales, including the CEO of Gwynedd Community Health Trust John Mullen, had a ‘special arrangement’ with BT. The Special Arrangement meant that the senior managers could ring BT’s sales dept and order anything at all and charge it to the NHS without being invoiced or providing ID or order numbers, a signature or indeed any of the usual formalities. All one had to do was tell BT that this was ‘on the Special Arrangement’ and the goods would be provided. As usual, it was Brown who explained that this Special Arrangement will have meant that NHS senior managers were having their home BT services charged to the NHS and that if they had a Special Arrangement with BT, they’ll have had a Special Arrangement with other people as well and were no doubt buying cars, carpets, electrical goods, furniture etc and charging them to the NHS.
  • At the time of the Special Arrangement, the Chairman of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust was the crooked Freemason who lived in Blaenau Ffestiniog, Hefin Davies. Hefin was/is a Director of a number of slate companies. Which might explain why I was told by a neighbour in Rachub in the 1990s that when three senior managers of Penrhyn Quarry were caught nicking tons of slate – the lorries were taking the slate out of the quarry without going over the weighbridge, it was a really big swindle – two were up in Court but the third, Geoff Drake, not only was never charged but then was offered a ‘seat on the Board at Ysbyty Gwynedd’. My neighbour couldn’t understand it. I could. See previous posts for info re Hefin and his consulting of NHS and Welsh Office lawyers asking them to prosecute me for anything, anything at all, they had to find something to prosecute me for. In Jan/Feb/March of 1995…

This was the Welsh Secretary at the time:

Anne is married to Leighton Andrews, the former Welsh Gov’t Education Minister. Anne and Leighton graduated from UCNW in the 1970s when the Gang ran the institution. Leighton used to make very entertaining speeches which I always appreciated and wasn’t afraid to say that the governance of Wales’s HE was mediocre and that University Governors in Wales were nothing more than a load of old farts who were related to/friends with the right people. As was Leighton’s wife, but Leighton avoided mentioning that. See previous posts.

Here is a BBC News piece from 26 April 2001:

Vallance resigns from BT

Sir Christopher Bland

Sir Christopher Bland is to take over at British Telecom

Sir Iain Vallance has resigned as chairman of British Telecom and will be replaced by Sir Christopher Bland, the chairman of the BBC. Many investors had been calling for both Sir Iain and chief executive Sir Peter Bonfield to resign, following the plunge of BT’s share price by more than 60% during the past 16 months, and the company’s massive debt problems.

The news was not met with approval by the financial markets, though. BT’s share price at first rose sharply, only to fall back again in later trading. The shares closed down 30p at 550p. One reason for the slide in the share price were reports that Sir Iain’s resignation had paved the way for a “rights issue”, worth a record-breaking £5bn ($7.2bn), according to the news agency Reuters. This means that BT will issue new shares and use the money to cuts its staggering debt burden. Analysts also expect the company to cut the dividend it pays out to shareholders. Both moves are certain to drive down the value of BT shares.

Vallance as ‘president emeritus’

The surprise announcement came in the morning on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. “I will resign from the board,” Sir Iain confirmed, although he stressed that he would not leave BT completely – the company has offered him a role as “president emeritus”. “With all the media stuff, I was thinking to myself it’s something I’ve wanted to do for some years and by staying on as president emeritus my experience will be available to Sir Christopher.”

Sir Iain will step down on 1 May after 12 years in the role and after a 35-year career with the company. He was due to depart in July 2002 and attention will now turn to how long chief executive Sir Peter Bonfield will remain at the helm. Asked if he would keep Sir Peter as chief executive, Sir Christopher Bland said “the relationship is something we’ll have to work at”.

Sir Iain Vallance

Sir Iain Vallance had been under pressure to resign.

Sir Christopher told BBC News Online that he was very sorry to be leaving the BBC after having a “terrific” time, but that he was looking forward to dealing with the challenges facing the UK’s largest telecoms company. Sir Iain’s resignation follows a board meeting on Tuesday, where the company was again considering its options for tackling its debt crisis.

BT’s troubles

Sir Iain’s departure from BT comes as the company struggles to cope with a £30bn debt mountain. Its financial difficulties partly stem from spending £10bn on acquiring next generation mobile phone licences in the UK and Germany. BT has promised shareholders to wipe £10bn off its debt by the end of this year – and needs to do so quickly in order to satisfy credit rating agencies. The detail of how the company intends to reduce its debt will be revealed when it reports its annual results on 17 May.

Investor revolt

With the telecoms sector under increasing pressure, the state of BT’s balance sheet has become the overriding concern for investors. And weary BT shareholders have seen the company’s share price slump from a peak of £15.13 last year to just £5.80 at the start of trading on Thursday. BT’s troubles are not all home grown. The company’s fall from grace has coincided with wider stock market gloom, which saw leading shares in the US and the UK fall heavily since March 2000. Amongst the hardest hit have been former state phone monopolies who, in virtually every western European country, have seen similar plunges to BT in their share prices.

Conflict of interest

Sir Christopher is the current chairman of the BBC board of governors and will continue in this role until a suitable replacement can be found. Sir Christopher said there would be no conflict of interest between the jobs. As BBC chairman he said he had no influence on the corporation’s journalistic output and would continue to guarantee editorial independence.

UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and Culture Secretary Chris Smith are reported to be happy with Sir Christopher continuing his role at the BBC when he takes up the BT appointment. The government on Wednesday appointed Sir Iain as a deputy chairman of the Financial Reporting Council.

Sir Iain is also the current president of the Confederation of British Industry.

 

Iain Vallance was rewarded for outstanding performance then.

I have blogged about Iain and Elizabeth Vallance previously and speculated that Patrick Vallance, who trained and worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School and who knew me when I was there and who last year was appointed the Gov’ts Chief Scientific Officer and then became Sir Patrick, might have been something to do with them. I have however found out that Patrick is not their son, but perhaps he is related in some other way.

Christopher Bland was appointed Chairman of BT in April 2001 – one month before I finished teacher training at Bangor University – when the plot to fit me up re false allegations and get me out of teaching was already underway…

Merfyn Jones served as Guv’nor of the BBC, 2003-06. Merfyn was appointed VC in 2004, but was acting VC from 2003 and was effectively running the University before that because of the then VC Roy Evans’ ill health. The Gwerin in the School of Education particularly hated Merfyn.

 

Because we were under surveillance, the security services knew that F and I had found out about the BT swindles by senior managers of the NHS in Gwynedd. They also knew that Brown told us how big and serious the swindle was.

Christopher Bland and his son Archie have been the subject of previous posts, but I’ll revisit them again now.

Sir Francis Christopher Buchan Bland (29 May 1938-28 January 2017) was Deputy Chairman of ITA (renamed IBA), 1972-80; appointed Chairman of  LWT in 1984 – Mandy worked for LWT and was mates with Bland – and of the BBC, 1996-2001. He took up the position as Chairman of BT in 2001. Bland left his position with BT in September 2007. Before leaving BT, he became Chairman of the Royal Shakespeare Company, in 2004.

Bland held many concurrent chairmanships and directorships, including chairman of Century Hutchinson Group (1984), the Edinburgh-based Canongate Publishing, the National Freight Corporation, (NFC PLC) (1994), and Life Sciences International PLC (1987) and Directorship of National Provident (1978) and Storehouse PLC (1988) among others.

Bland had a long-standing interest in the cultivation of wine and in 1995 bought a 19th-century house with a large wine cellar containing alcoves to accommodate 1,000 bottles of Bordeaux, 100 bottles of Champagne, and 120 bins of white Burgundy. Two years later, he bought a small vineyard next to his home in Gascony in France, producing about 1,000 litres of wine a year. Bland was Chairman of Leiths School of Food and Wine, which he bought jointly with Caroline Waldegrave in 1994.

William Waldegrave was Secretary of State for Health, 1990-92 and for Agriculture, 1994-95. The Waldegrave’s family seat is in Somerset. Waldegrave was a Director of Coutts, one of who’s customers supplied some of the money to the person in Somerset who became flush when the Gang were after me in the late 1980s/1990s. See eg. ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’.

Waldegrave’s sister Lady Susan Hussey was married to Marmaduke, Thatch’s hatchet Chairman at the BBC. Susan Hussey was/is a Lady-in-Waiting to Lilibet and is godmother to Prince William. See previous posts for info on the Waldegraves/Husseys.

 

Christopher Bland was born in Japan, where he lived for his first two years. His father worked for Shell and moved around the world; Bland and his younger brother were largely brought up by relatives in Northern Ireland.

Sir William Asscher, the Grand Facilitator of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, had a father who worked for Shell. Asscher was turned down for every medical school until his dad had a word with a friend at the London Hospital and they ensured that Asscher was offered a place. I’m fairly sure that Sir Henry Tizard and his son Peter, a London paediatrician, were the clue to Asscher’s success at the London Hospital. See previous posts.

Bland was educated at Sedbergh School, and Queen’s College, Oxford. Bland was at Queen’s College at about the same time as, or very shortly after, Ioan Bowen Rees was a student there. While Bland was at Oxford he was a member of the Irish Olympic fencing team in 1960; he captained the Oxford University Fencing and Modern Pentathlon teams. Bland spent his National Service with the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards and afterwards became involved in Tory Party politics.

Together with Christopher Brocklebank-Fowler Christopher Bland wrote a pamphlet in 1964 on immigration, urging fewer controls over entry and more effort to integrate immigrant communities. He worked as a management consultant with Booz Allen Hamilton.

Bland served as a member of the GLC for  Lewisham, 1967-70 and became Chairman of the Schools Committee of ILEA. The GLC and ILEA were on board with Dafydd, Gwynne, John Allen, Ioan etc, sending numerous kids to children’s homes in north Wales. See previous posts.

Bland was elected Chairman of the Bow Group think tank on 10 April 1969 to 1970 and also edited its magazine Crossbow.

Bland ran the construction and engineering firm Beyer Peacock and printers Sir Joseph Causton & Sons. Bland was critical of changes made by Thatch to Conservative Central Office staff shortly after her election as Leader in 1975. In 1976, Bland put his name to a supporting statement issued by the National Campaign for Electoral Reform.

In 1981, Bland married Jennifer Mary Denise May, now known as Lady Bland (from 1963 to 1981 Jennifer was married to Viscount Enfield aka 8th Earl of Strafford, when she was titled Lady Enfield) and the daughter of William May, the former Ulster Unionist Party MP for the Ards constituency in County Down, 1949-62 and Minister of Education for N Ireland, 1957-62. May would known about Kincora if the VIP ring at Kincora was in existence in May’s time. William May died on 2 March 1962. J.E. Daniel, Gang member and father of the corrupt Judge Huw Daniel, was killed in a car accident in Flintshire on 11 Feb 1962 at the age of 59. J.E. Daniel was an early member of Plaid, along with Saunders Lewis, Ambrose Bebb et al and of course Dafydd. Saunders Lewis made his radio broadcast ‘Tynged yr Iaith’ on Feb 13 1962. Dafydd was at his side, recording the lecture. See ‘Tan yn Llyn’.

No wonder the Gang give Huw Daniel orders and he follows them. Fings Break.

The Bland family, consisting of the couple, their son, Archie Bland, and four stepchildren, lived at Abbots Worthy House, the home of Lady Bland and her former husband, later the Earl of Strafford, in the village of Abbots Worthy in Hampshire with a London flat in Catherine Place, near St James’s Park moving their main residence to Blissamore Hall  near Andover also in Hampshire), in 1998.

Lord Denning and his brother Sir Norman Denning, for many years the most senior figure in Naval Intelligence, in the UK both lived in the Whitchurch/Overton area of Hampshire, the village in which they grew up. The Dennings concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring throughout their entire lives and the associated serious crime. See previous posts.Hampshire hosted many other people who did the same, because of its proximity to Navy HQ at Portsmouth. Southampton Medical School was a hotspot for the same reason (see ‘Professor Prestigious And His Associates’). Fergie’s dad the massage parlour frequenting Major Ron farmed in Hampshire… I used to know someone who told me that Major Ron was known to have a taste for underage girls and this was so well known that one day this person and her pals all turned up to a polo match where Major Ron was playing a leading role wearing badges saying ‘Major Ron’s Kiddie Sex Club’ and no-one dared say a thing to them… See previous posts for info on the Fergie family, including the death of Fergie’s mum, Susan Barrantes, in that car crash in Argentina on 19 Sept 1998, mid-way through the Waterhouse Inquiry.

From 1 January 1982, Christopher Bland joined the board of LWT (Holdings) and on 1 January 1984 succeeded John Freeman as Chairman of the main board of LWT.

Bland was also a Director of ITN and GMTV, and Chairman of Century Hutchinson, then an LWT subsidiary. When, after the 1993 franchise renewal, LWT was taken over by Granada in a hotly contested hostile bid, Bland became a millionaire. See previous posts.

From 1982 to 1994, Bland was Chairman of the Hammersmith and Queen Charlotte’s Hospitals NHS Special Health Authority subsequently chairing Hammersmith Hospitals NHS Trust, including Charing Cross Hospital, 1994-February 1997.

Bland was in post when I was at Hammersmith Hospital, 1986-87 witnessing the wrongdoing on the part of Dafydd’s mates there… Charing Cross Hospital hosted the notorious Gender Identity clinic where for years patients were treated appallingly by some truly bizarre Top Docs with peculiar notions of appropriate female behaviour. The patients began voting with their feet and going abroad when that became an option. Charing Cross then became very much more accommodating, so much so that they began approving gender change surgery for anyone with the dosh to pay for it. At least one of the Charing Cross patients was butchered so badly re surgery that it nearly killed them but no Top Doc was ever held to account. See ‘R.I.P. Julia Grant and Many More’.

Dame Josephine Barnes was the obstetrician/gynaecologist who ruled the roost at Charing Cross for many years. Dame Josephine was married to Sir Brian Warren, Ted Heath’s close friend and personal physician and both the Dame and Sir Brian were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See eg. ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’

Bland was knighted for his NHS work in 1993, the year that I was convicted of staring at social worker Jackie Brandt in Safeways although her statement had accused me of rather more serious offences.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Bland was Chairman of the RSC, 2004–11, during which time the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford upon Avon was rebuilt at a cost of around £113 million. Bland held other public sector roles: as Chairman of the Private Finance Panel 1995-96 and as a member of the Prime Minister’s Advisory Panel on the Citizen’s Charter. I remember it well! The Empowered Service Users got hold of the Citizen’s Charter re the NHS and we howled with laughter at the gulf between what we were told we could expect as citizens and the way in which Alun Davies just insulted us whenever we tried to raise concerns or bellowed that he would have us arrested. It was during the Citizen’s Charter farce that F and I found out about the swindle that the senior NHS managers in Gwynedd were running with BT.

Bland was a senior adviser at Warburg Pincus (a private equity firm).

Bland was the father of print journalist and former Deputy Editor of the Indie, Archie Bland, and from 1981 became stepfather to four children, who include the author Lady Georgia Byng, and the Managing Director of the Edinburgh-based publishing house Canongate Books, Jamie Byng, following Bland’s wife’s earlier marriage to Viscount Enfield (1963–1981).

Bland’s death was announced by his son Archie on Twitter on 28 January 2017. He had been suffering from prostate cancer. Sir Christopher had obviously Not Attended For Screening.

Sir Peter Bonfield was Chief Exec of BT when Alun Davies’s colleagues (and probably Davies as well) were working their huge fiddle with BT. Sir Peter Leahy Bonfield (born 3 June 1944) has led a number of companies in the fields of electronics, computers and communications. He probably listened to that phone call that F made when F found out about the BT fiddle. Currently a director of several companies in the USA, Europe and the Far East, Sir Peter was formerly Chief Executive of ICL and more recently of BT Group. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the British Computer Society, the Chartered Institute of Marketing, the Marketing Society and the Royal Society of Arts. Bonfield is a Liveryman of The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists, Freeman of the City of London, Honorary Citizen of Dallas, Texas and Member of The Pilgrims of Great Britain.

The third son of an engineer and his Welsh wife – bechod, he married a lovely little Welsh girl, Dafydd would be delighted to hear it!! – Bonfield was brought up in Baldock, Hertfordshire and educated at Hitchin Boys’ Grammar School. Bonfield graduated from Loughborough University. Loughborough, like Leicester University, concealed the Leicestershire ring. See previous posts.

Peter Bonfield began his career with the United States company Texas Instruments, in their Bedford (England) semiconductor plant, where he held various design, manufacturing and management roles. In 1984, on its takeover by STC plc, Bonfield was appointed Chairman and managing director of ICL plc. He remained as Chief Executive of International Computers Limited until the end of 1995, seeing the company through a period when STC sold most of its stake in the company to Fujitsu.

In 1996 Bonfield was appointed CEO and Chairman of the Executive Committee of British Telecommunications plc, where he served until early 2002. During Bonfield’s tenure the share price went from £4 to £15, and back again to £5. Bonfield’s salary to 31 March 2001, was a basic of £780,000 (increasing to £820,000) plus a £481,000 bonus and £50,000 of other benefits including pension. He also received a deferred bonus, payable in shares in three years’ time, of £481,00 and additional bonuses of £3.3 million. So Bonfield did nearly as well out of BT as the senior managers of the NHS in Gwynedd did.

Dr Peter Higson was the regional manager for NHS mental health services in north Wales when BT had the Special Arrangement with them.

Earlier this year Peter was appointed as a member of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority. See previous post.

Peter’s sister is Dr Ruth Hussey. I would love to know if Ruth married a relative of Marmaduke and Lady Susan, perhaps readers could let me know if she did. Ruth was Chief Medical Officer for Wales, 2012-March 2016 and as such was named as a Role Model for Wimmin. Ruth and Peter were born and brought up near Llanwrst, in the hub of north Welsh Freemasonry and the Gang. Ruth, like Dafydd, qualified as a Top Doc from Liverpool University. Ruth Hussey was a previous Committee Member and is an Honorary Life Member of the Liverpool Medical Students Society. Ruth was previously Regional Director of Public Health and Senior Medical Director at NHS North West. She also served a stint at the Dept of Health in Whitehall. They only take the best there!

Meet Keith Best, barrister, former MP for Anglesey and Welsh Office Minister who concealed the crimes of the Gang when Ruth’s brother Peter was managing the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. See eg. ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.

Ruth Hussey was appointed Companion of the Order of the Bath (CB) in the 2016 New Year Honours. Lilibet knows how to pick ’em!

In 2017-2018, Hussey chaired a panel of experts that looked at ways to improve the Health and Social Care system in Wales. The panel proposed far reaching changes to the system, which Hussey said was in need of a ‘revolution’. The revolution needed is the removal of Ruth and her extended circle of family and friends from all positions of responsibility.

See previous posts eg. ‘Topsy and Tim’ for Peter and Ruth’s previous.

When BT had the Special Arrangement with the NHS in Gwynedd, Virginia was Health Secretary and The Hague was Secretary of State for Wales.

Re matters autism and Dafydd’s friends: the blockbuster ‘Rain Man’ was released in 1988 and involved Stephen Spielberg. Since then Dafydd’s mates have done very well Researching Autism and expanding the category to include very many people. They’ll all need an Assessment and a Care Plan! Could ‘Rain Man’ have served the same purpose as the Prize Winning psych nurse from Savile Central, Paul Sayer, who wrote ‘The Comforts Of Madness’ at about the same time, as discussed in ‘The Joys Of Propaganda’? Then there was the more recent 2003 book that took the world by storm, Mark Haddon’s ‘The Curious Incident With The Dog In The Night-Time’, which Did A Lot For Autism, just as I began my PhD.

 

Andrew Fielding Huxley was Tom Huxley’s grandson, the youngest son of Tom’s son the writer and editor Leonard Huxley by Leonard Huxley’s second wife Rosalind Bruce. Leonard was Marian Huxley’s brother, Marian who was the grandmother of Bertrand Russell’s friend Rupert Crawshay-Williams. Thus Marian was Andrew Huxley’s aunty. Leonard’s other children, Andrew’s half-brothers, were Aldous Huxley and the biologist Julian Huxley

Sir Julian Sorell Huxley (22 June 1887-14 February 1975) was Secretary of the Zoological Society of London, 1935–42, the first Director of UNESCO, a founding member of the World Wildlife Fund and the first President of the British Humanist Association.

Julian Huxley was well known for his presentation of science in books and articles, and on radio and TV. He directed an Oscar-winning wildlife film. He was awarded UNESCO’s Kalinga Prize for the popularisation of science in 1953, the Darwin Medal of the Royal Society in 1956 and the Darwin–Wallace Medal of the Linnaean Society in 1958. Julian was also knighted in 1958.

In 1959 Julian Huxley received a Special Award of the Lasker Foundation in the category Planned ParenthoodWorld Population. Huxley was a prominent member of the British Eugenics Society and was its President, 1959-62. Previous posts have mentioned many Top Docs, including those at the Maudsley who Trained Dafydd, who were active in the British Eugenics Society. Eugenics was of course in no way a minority sport until recent decades, Marie Stopes was famously a eugenicist as were many other birth control campaigners. Their enthusiasm for birth control wasn’t usually about Exploring Sexuality, it was far more often about stopping the lower orders from reproducing. The other end of the spectrum involved Top Docs assisting people in securing high quality gametes in order to produce the best offspring possible, as discussed in my post ‘The Case Of The King’s Sperm’.

Lord Robert Platt, the kidney specialist Top Doc who ruled supreme in Manchester for much of the middle of the 20th century and who had an exceedingly low opinion of psychiatrists but none the less propped Dafydd and Gwynne up, was one Top Doc who articulated his eugenicist ideals after his colleagues realised that it was wiser to keep quiet about that in public. See previous posts.

Julian Huxley was born on 22 June 1887, at the London house of his aunt, the novelist Mary Augusta Ward, while his father was attending the Jubilee celebrations of Queen Victoria. Huxley grew up at the family home in Surrey, where he was given lessons in nature/biology by his grandfather, Thomas Henry Huxley.

T. H. Huxley with Julian in 1893

At the age of thirteen Julian Huxley attended Eton. Years previously, his grandfather had influenced the school to build science laboratories. In 1905 Huxley won a scholarship to study Zoology at Balliol. In 1906, after a summer in Germany, Huxley took up his place at Oxford, graduating in 1909 and spending that July at the international gathering for the centenary of Darwin’s birth, held at Cambridge University.

While at Oxford, Julian developed a friendship with the ornithologist William Warde Fowler.

Huxley was awarded a scholarship to spend a year at the Naples Marine Biological Station where he developed his interest in developmental biology. In 1910 he was appointed as Demonstrator in the Department of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy at Oxford University and started on the systematic observation of the courtship habits of water birds. Huxley helped devise systems for the surveying and conservation of birds. Huxley’s particular interest was bird behaviour and his 1914 paper on the great crested grebe was a landmark in avian ethology.

In 1912 Huxley was asked by Edgar Odell Lovett to take the lead in setting up the new Department of Biology at the newly created Rice Institute (now Rice University) in Houston, Texas, which he accepted, planning to start the following year. Huxley made an exploratory trip to the United States in September 1912, visiting a number of leading universities as well as the Rice Institute. At T. H. Morgan‘s fly lab (Columbia University) Huxley invited H. J. Muller to join him at Rice. Muller agreed to be his deputy, hurried to complete his PhD and moved to Houston for the beginning of the 1915–1916 academic year.

Before taking up the post of Assistant Professor at the Rice Institute, Huxley spent a year in Germany preparing for his new job.  In 1913 Julian Huxley had a nervous breakdown and rested in a nursing home. His depression returned the next year and he and his brother Noel Trevennen (two years his junior) ended up in the same nursing home. Sadly, Trevennen hanged himself. As in Bertrand Russell’s family, a number of Huxleys struggled with depression and what used to be called nervous disorders. Tom Huxley’s father died in Barming Asylum and Tom’s brother George suffered; their brother James, a well known psychiatrist and Superintendent of Kent County Asylum, was at 55 “as near mad as any sane man can be”. In the next generation,Marian – who subsequently died of pneumonia in her mid-20s – also suffered.

In September 1916 Julian Huxley returned to England from Texas to assist in the war effort. He was commissioned in the Royal Army Service Corps on 25 May 1917 and was transferred to the General List, working in the British Army Intelligence Corps from 26 January 1918, first in Sussex and then in northern Italy. Huxley was advanced in grade within the Intelligence Corps on 3 May 1918, relinquished his intelligence appointment on 10 January 1919 and was demobilised five days later, retaining his rank. After the war he became a Fellow at New College, Oxford and was made Senior Demonstrator in the University Department of Zoology. New College was a recruiting ground for the British security services and they won’t have been able to have resisted Julian Huxley. Richard Crossman joined the security services when he was at New College a few years after Huxley; Crossman’s dad the High Court judge Sir Charles Stafford Crossman was also educated at New College. Herbert Albert Laurens ‘HAL’ Fisher was a New College graduate who became a don during the 1890s. Fisher was the Liberal MP for Sheffield Hallam and served as the Secretary of the Board of Education, 1916-22, in David Lloyd George’s Coalition Gov’t and was mates with the Bloomsbury Set, including those who hung out in north Wales. See previous posts eg. ‘The Vermin Club’.

In 1919 Julian Huxley married Juliette Baillot (1896–1994). Juliette was a French Swiss girl whom Huxley had met at Garsington Manor, the country house of Lady Ottoline Morrell. Ottoline was a central figure in the Bloomsbury Group and enjoyed S&M sessions with Bertrand Russell. See previous posts eg. ‘International Woman’s Day! Let’s Celebrate With Jane…’.

The newly-wed Huxleys’ life together included students, faculty wives, grebes and another depressive breakdown, a serious one. From Juliette’s autobiography Huxley’s illness seemed to have been a variant of bipolar disorder. It took a long time for Huxley to recover, but it is claimed that despite this he left a legacy of students who admired him, and who became leaders in zoology for the next three or four decades. E. B. Ford always remembered Huxley’s openness and encouragement at the start of his career.

It is fascinating reading about Huxley and his proteges, because during the decades in which they dominated zoology and evolutionary genetics, there was always much theorising yet much disagreement between them. As an undergrad I was exposed to many of the debates that had engulfed them and I was left with an impression of lots of Big Names (such as Julian Huxley) with whom the plebs were simply not allowed to disagree, yet their theories and work could be pulled apart by other Big Names. By the time that I was reading their work in the 1980s it was clear that they had got a lot of things badly wrong but dissent just had not been tolerated. Then it had become clear that some of them had fabricated their research…

My post ‘A Trail Of Blood’ discussed some of this, including how E.B. Ford and some of his students/colleagues forged research or produced very poor quality research, yet went unchallenged for years. These were influential people who had taught and worked with some of the biologists who taught me at UCNW. ‘A Trail Of Blood’ discussed Sir Cyril Clarke, an Oundel-educated Top Doc based in Liverpool who knew Dafydd and who, as well as Top Doctoring, also researched moths and almost certainly knew Gavin Gatehouse, the PhD supervisor of my friend Anne Vernon who was killed by the Gang in April 1986. It is fairly clear from reading Clarke’s work – or indeed the lack of it in terms of raw data and evidence – that he didn’t perform much of the research that he claimed to have. Yet Clarke clocked up the awards and the honours, interestingly enough in the years after Anne’s death, at times crucial for Dafydd’s reputation. Sir Cyril Clarke and his mates had been protected from the consequences of their outrageous research fraud and malpractice by the towering figure on the Liverpool medical scene for so many years, Lord Henry Cohen aka Lord Birkenhead. Henry Cohen was at the top of the medical establishment during the middle decades of the 20th century and served as an advisor to the Minister of Health when Enoch Powell held that position. Cohen will have had much to do with Dafydd being accepted for Top Docs’ training by Liverpool University with the encouragement of the security services and Cohen will have been yet another person who ensured that Gwynne continued lobotomising and occasionally killing.

Even after Henry Cohen was dead – he died on 7 Aug 1977 –  his reputation would have needed defending, which is how I imagine such an impressive cess pool developed on Merseyside. See ‘A Trail Of Blood’.

Since beginning this post (I’ve been working on it since I initially posted it up days ago) I have received info that Clarke and Gatehouse or at least some of the zoologists at Bangor were acting as peer reviewers for each others research grant applications. Which interested me because of the way in which Anne began her PhD with Gavin Gatehouse. Anne had for ages said that she didn’t want to do a PhD because she was so worried that she wouldn’t be able to get a job afterwards. Jobs as academics in the natural sciences were becoming very hard to get in the mid-1980s and although that was obviously what Anne wanted to do, her parents in Surrey, an accountant and a teacher, were very keen for her to lead a bourgeois life on a high income, not the life of a naturalist in penury. Anne’s dad had even been sending her job adverts, there was a lot of pressure on her and she was feeling very anxious about it and this was well-known. At a time when Anne was feeling very, very desperate, she was asked, by Gavin Gatehouse, if she would like to do a PhD with him because he had just received a studentship for a project on noctuid moths (Dafydd’s mate Cyril Clarke’s sideline) and he did not have anyone interested in it. I don’t think that Gavin Gatehouse even advertised that studentship, Anne was actively sought out and asked if she wanted to take it, although she had not ever specialised in noctuid moths at any time…

 

Huxley with his two sons, Anthony and Francis.

In 1925 Julian Huxley moved to King’s College, London as Professor of Zoology, but in 1927 he resigned his Chair to work full-time with HG Wells and his son G. P. Wells on The Science of Life. For some time Huxley retained his room at King’s College and continued as Honorary Lecturer in the Zoology Department. From 1927 to 1931 he was also Fullerian Professor of Physiology at the Royal Institution, where he gave an annual lectures series. Huxley had by that time, come to the end of his life as a university academic.

In 1929, after finishing work on The Science of Life, Huxley visited East Africa to advise the Colonial Office on education in British East Africa (for the most part Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyika). Juliette wrote about Huxley falling in love with an 18-year-old American girl on board ship (when Juliette was not present) and then presented Juliette with his ideas for an open marriage: “What Julian really wanted was… a definite freedom from the conventional bonds of marriage.” The couple separated for a while; Julian travelled to the US, hoping to land a suitable appointment and, in due course, to marry Miss Weldmeier. He left no account of what transpired, but he was evidently not successful and returned to England to resume his marriage in 1931.

As the 1930s started, Huxley travelled widely and took part in a variety of activities which were partly scientific and partly political. In 1931 Huxley visited the USSR at the invitation of Intourist, where initially he admired the results of social and economic planning on a large scale. Later, back in the United Kingdom, he became a founding member of the think tank Political and Economic Planning.

In the 1930s Huxley visited Kenya and other East African countries to see the conservation work, including the creation of national parks in the few areas that remained uninhabited due to malaria. From 1933 to 1938 Huxley was a member of the Committee for Lord Hailey’s African Survey.

Huxley lights a cigarette under his grandfather’s portrait, c.1935.

In 1935 Huxley was appointed secretary to the Zoological Society of London, and spent much of the next seven years running the society and its zoological gardens, the London Zoo and Whipsnade Park, alongside his writing and research. There was much dissatisfaction with Huxley’s performance in that role. Huxley was not a skilled administrator; his wife said “He was impatient… and lacked tact”.

Previous posts have discussed Ronnie Waterhouse’s role as a Trustee/Director of the London Zoo and the research that St George’s were carrying out with the London Zoo when I worked there. Very cruel research that caught the attention of the media, so St George’s and London Zoo simply issued a press release stating that the research had stopped although I had not. The St George’s researcher involved was a friend of Virginia McKenna’s family, Virginia of the ‘Born Free’ foundation… See previous posts.

In 1941 Julian Huxley was invited to the United States on a lecturing tour, and generated some controversy by saying that he thought the United States should join WW II: a few weeks later came the attack on Pearl Harbour. When the US joined the war, Huxley found it difficult to get a passage back to the UK and his lecture tour was extended. The Council of the Zoological Society, unhappy with their Secretary, used this as an opportunity to remove Huxley. This they did by abolishing his post “to save expenses”. Since Huxley had taken a half-salary cut at the start of the war and no salary at all whilst he was in America, the Council’s action was widely read as a personal attack on Huxley. A public controversy ensued, but eventually the Council got its way.

In 1943 Huxley was asked by the British Gov’t to join the Colonial Commission on Higher Education. The Commission’s remit was to survey the West African Commonwealth countries for suitable locations for the creation of universities. There Huxley contracted a disease, went down with hepatitis and had a serious mental breakdown. He was completely disabled, treated with ECT and took a full year to recover. He was 55.

Huxley got involved in the creation of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and became the organization’s first Director-General in 1946. His term of office, six years in the Charter, was cut down to two years at the behest of the American delegation. It is likely that Huxley’s left-wing tendencies and humanism were likely factors. There were many conservative opponents of his scientific humanism. Huxley’s idea of restraining population growth with birth control was anathema to both the Catholic Church and the Comintern/Cominform.

Huxley’s internationalist and conservation interests also led him, with Victor Stolan, Sir Peter Scott, Max Nicholson and Guy Mountfort, to set up the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature under its former name of the World Wildlife Fund). Previous posts have discussed the many links with the Gang that the WWF had/has; Phil the Greek was their Patron for years. Peter Scott was one of the Oundle old boys and served as Chancellor of Birmingham University when Bluglass et al ran the institution.

Another post-war activity was Huxley’s attack on the Soviet politico-scientist Trofim Lysenko, who had espoused Lamarckian theories, made unscientific pronouncements on agriculture, used his influence to destroy classical genetics in Russia and to move genuine scientists from their posts. In 1940, the leading botanical geneticist Nikolai Vavilov was arrested, and Lysenko replaced him as Director of the Institute of Genetics. In 1941, Vavilov was tried, found guilty of ‘sabotage’ and sentenced to death. Reprieved, he died in jail of malnutrition in 1943. Lysenko’s machinations were the cause of his arrest. Lysenkoism not only denied proven genetic facts, it stopped the artificial selection of crops on Darwinian principles and this may have contributed to the regular famines that resulted from the Soviet agricultural system. Huxley, who had twice visited the Soviet Union, was originally not anti-communist, but the ruthless adoption of Lysenkoism by Joseph Stalin ended his tolerant attitude. Lysenko ended his days in a Soviet mental hospital and Vavilov’s reputation was posthumously restored in 1955.

In the 1950s Huxley played a role in bringing to English speakers the work of the French Jesuit palaeontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, whom he believed had been unfairly treated by the Catholic and Jesuit hierarchy. Both men believed in evolution, but differed in that de Chardin was a Christian, whilst Huxley was a non-believer. Huxley wrote the foreword to The Phenomenon of Man (1959) and was bitterly attacked by his rationalist friends for doing so.

In addition to his international and humanist concerns, Huxley’s research interests covered evolution in all its aspects, ethology, embryology, genetics, anthropology and to some extent the infant field of cell biology. Julian’s eminence as an advocate for evolution and especially his contribution to the modern evolutionary synthesis, led to his awards of the Darwin Medal of the Royal Society in 1956 and the Darwin–Wallace Medal of the Linnaean Society in 1958.

Huxley was a friend and mentor of the biologists and Nobel laureates Konrad Lorenz and Niko Tinbergen, (see previous posts for discussion of those in the Gang’s support network who tried to apply Lorenz and Tinbergen’s work to human beings) and taught and encouraged many others. Huxley’s interest in progress and evolutionary humanism runs through much of his published work. He was one of the signers of the Humanist Manifesto.

Huxley and the biologist August Weismann insisted that natural selection was the primary agent in evolution. Huxley was a major player in the mid-20th century modern evolutionary synthesis and was a prominent populariser of biological science to the general public.

  • In the early 20th century Huxley was one of the minority of biologists who believed that natural selection was the main driving force of evolution and that evolution occurred by small steps.
  • Although Huxley’s time as an academic was quite brief, he taught and encouraged a number of evolutionary biologists at the University of Oxford in the 1920s. Charles Elton (an ecologist), Alister Hardy (a marine biologist) and John Baker (a cytologist) all became highly successful and Baker eventually wrote Huxley’s Royal Society obituary memoir.

The ecologists at Bangor will have known of Charles Elton and his work and Sir Alister Clavering Hardy has close links with Bangor and Wales per se. Hardy was the first Professor of Zoology at Hull University, 1928-42; Professor of Natural History at Aberdeen University, 1942-46 and Linacre Professor of Zoology at Oxford University and Fellow of Merton College, 1946-61.

In 1940, Hardy was made FRS and he was knighted in 1957.

1957: Macmillan reshuffled his Cabinet because of something Gwynne-related and Dafydd qualified as a Top Doc and headed straight for Denbigh.

Like Clough Williams-Ellis, Peter Scott, Harriet’s dad et al, Alister Hardy went to Oundle School; he was some 13 years younger than Clough. Hardy had a lifelong interest in spiritual phenomena, but was aware that his interests were likely to be considered unorthodox in the scientific community. Apart from occasional lectures Hardy kept his opinions to himself until his retirement from his Oxford Chair. During the academic sessions of 1963-4 and 1964-5, Hardy gave the Gifford Lectures at Aberdeen University on the evolution of religion, later published as The Living Stream and The Divine Flame. These lectures signalled his wholehearted return to his religious interests.

In 1969 Hardy founded the founded the Religious Experience Research Centre at Manchester College, Oxford. The Centre began its work by compiling a database of religious experiences and continues to investigate the nature and function of spiritual and religious experience. The Centre was located at Manchester College Oxford, 1969-1989 and from 1989–1999 at Westminster College, Oxford. In 2000 the Centre relocated to the University of Trinity St David at Lampeter. The Directors of the Centre are currently Greg Barker, Bettina Schmidt and Sally Wilkinson.

Bettina Schmidt used to work at the School of Theology at Bangor University and was one of those discussed in earlier posts who caused such bad feeling that an enormous sigh of relief was breathed when she left Bangor for Lampeter.

Much more interesting is the fact that Mike Jackson, a clinical psychologist who since the late 1980s has worked with the Gang in north Wales, did his PhD at Hardy’s Centre, when it was still based at Oxford. Mike used to be a neighbour of mine and he knew exactly what was happening to me and other Empowered Service Users. Mike knew about Dafydd and the trafficking ring, the research fraud, the serious abuse and neglect of Empowered Service Users and that Empowered Service Users were going to prison because Mike’s colleagues were perjuring themselves. Mike has never said a word about any of it and when he heard that my lawyers had taken possession of my medical records and I bumped into him in Morrisons, he was good enough to yell that he knew that I’d suffered but he hoped that I never won a case against the NHS.

I never understood why Mike Jackson ever went to work in north Wales. He wasn’t grossly incompetent or the child of one of the Gang so I’m intrigued as to why he ever thought that it would be a suitable habitat for him. He moved in two doors down from me a few months after I bought my house in Rachub, when I was still working at St George’s. After I began this blog, I was told that Mike was someone who had been told that a medical researcher at St George’s had found out about Gwynne and Dafydd and she was not going to keep quiet about them, so Mike assisted with the collective effort to ensure that the Gang remained in business. The Gang are of course linked to a ring in Oxford, which was facilitated by Top Docs, clin psychs etc at Oxford University. Mike arrived in Bangor in the late 1980s; in 1987, Prof Mark Williams at Bangor discovered the Miracle Of Mindfulness which eventually bagged him a Chair at Oxford. See post ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot’.

Mike’s wife Sonia grew up in Somerset near to where I had gone to school. Although I didn’t know her in Somerset, it is likely that Sonia knew people who knew me.

In the 1990s, Nice Young Doctor Richard Tranter arrived to join the Gang at Bangor from Oxford. Richard emigrated to New Zealand a few years ago unexpectedly. He decided to leave the UK after Brown and I began publishing about the mental health services in north Wales, after Operation Pallial was launched and just after Tony Francis killed himself. See previous posts for info on Tranter and his wife Siobhan, a Lovely Young Angel who, like her husband, was concealing abuse and criminality.

When Tony Francis died, it was noted that there were no media reports or even obituaries. It is believed that Francis hung himself but no-one knows where or who found his body. Brown remarked that Francis must have been in a terrible state because Top Docs don’t usually hang themselves; they know that it is not a nice way to go and they have access to drugs which provide an easier farewell. Loads of kids in care and Empowered Service Users in north Wales ‘hung themselves’. Some of us believe that as with all those patients of Dafydd’s on the hospital wing in Risley Remand Centre who Hung Themselves while being regularly observed by Angels (see eg. ‘Include Me Out’), many of the former kids in care and Empowered Service Users were murdered.

The other day I had a visit from someone who told me that he believed that, like Michael Mansfield’s daughter who Hung Herself not long ago, Tony Francis could well have been murdered and he asked me if I thought that Tranter had feared that he would be next and that’s why he emigrated. I have no idea, but I do definitely believe that many of the suicides in north Wales and Risley were murders. Some of the inquests have barely bothered to conjure up credible explanations for the death, it’s not as if anyone ever asks the obvious questions.

 

In 1973 Alister Hardy met with A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and other devotees of the Hare Krishna movement and discussed Vedic literature, the divine flame and Rabindranath Tagore.

Hardy’s biological approach to the roots of religion is currently shared by a number of other researchers (cf. Scott Atran, Pascal Boyer) but unlike them Hardy did not wish to be reductionist, seeing religious awareness as having evolved in response to a genuine dimension of reality. For his work in founding the Religious Experience Research Centre, Hardy received the Templeton Prize shortly before his death. Previous posts have discussed the eccentricities of the Templeton Prize – which is worth a great deal of money – and those involved with reviewing applicants. One of them is Andrew Davidson Briggs, who holds a Chair at Oxford and is the brother of Ann Atkins, the erudite but rather condemning regular on Radio 4’s ‘Thought For the Day’. Ann Atkins is the cousin of Mr Porter, who owned and was Headmaster of Hillgrove School in Bangor, where I used to teach. Mr Porter was part of the conspiracy to level fallacious allegations against me and force me out of teaching, although he had a great deal of encouragement from the Gang. See eg. ‘Thought For The Day’…

Ann Atkins’ entire family have held positions in the Anglican Church and affiliated institutions for so long that they must have had knowledge of clerical abuse. See previous posts.

Alister Hardy was alive and kicking until 22 May 1985, so he was around to assist Gwynne with the How Very Dare You when I complained about him.

The Gang experienced the loss of another powerful friend when Anthony Eden’s son Nicholas Eden resigned from his Ministerial job in Thatch’s Gov’t on 27 March 1985 and died from HIV/AIDS on 17 Aug 1985. See previous posts…

 

Perhaps the most significant of Julian Huxley’s proteges was Edmund Brisco Ford, – who gave rise to a number of researchers who fabricated research, as discussed in my post ‘A Trail Of Blood’ – who founded the field of ecological genetics. Another important disciple of Huxley was Gavin de Beer, who became Director of the Natural History Museum. E.B. Ford and de Beer had attended Huxley’s lectures, later became his collaborators and then leaders in the field in their own right.

  • In an era when scientists did not travel so frequently as today, Huxley was an exception; he travelled widely in Europe, Africa and the United States. Huxley was therefore able to learn from and influence other scientists, naturalists and administrators. In the US he was able to meet other evolutionists at a critical time in the reassessment of natural selection. In Africa Huxley was able to influence colonial administrators about education and wildlife conservation. In Europe, through UNESCO, he was at the centre of the post-WW II revival of education. In Russia, Huxley’s experiences were mixed. His initially favourable view was changed by his growing awareness of Stalin’s murderous repression and the Lysenko affair. There seems little evidence that Huxley had any effect on the Soviet Union and the same could be said for some other Western scientists.
  • Huxley was one of the main architects of the modern evolutionary synthesis which took place around the time of  WW II. The synthesis of genetic and population ideas produced a consensus which reigned in biology from about 1940.
  • Huxley’s first ‘trial run’ was the treatment of evolution in the Science of Life (1929–30) and in 1936 he published a long and significant paper for the British Association
  • Huxley’s book Evolution: The Modern Synthesis was written whilst he was Secretary to the Zoological Society and made use of his remarkable collection of reprints covering the first part of the century. It was published in 1942.
  • Huxley’s main co-respondents in the modern evolutionary synthesis are usually listed as Ernst Mayr, Theodosius Dobzhansky, George Gaylord Simpson, Bernhard Rensch, Ledyard Stebbins and the population geneticists J. B. S. Haldane, Ronald Fisher and Sewall Wright.
    However, at the time of Huxley’s book several of these had yet to make their distinctive contribution. Huxley, E.B. Ford and his co-workers were important; and Cyril Darlington was a notable source of facts and ideas.
  • Some of Huxley’s last contributions to the evolutionary synthesis debate were on the subject of ecological genetics and polymorphism, the field in which Sir Cyril Clarke and others who fabricated their research published. See post ‘A Trail Of Blood’.

Huxley had a close association with the British rationalist and secular humanist movements. He was an Honorary Associate of the Rationalist Press Association from 1927 until his death, and on the formation of the British Humanist Association in 1963 Huxley was appointed President, to be succeeded by AJ Ayer in 1965. Huxley was also closely involved with the International Humanist and Ethical Union. In 1962 Huxley accepted the American Humanist Association‘s annual “Humanist of the Year” award. Huxley also presided over the founding Congress of the International Humanist and Ethical Union and served with John Dewey, Albert Einstein and Thomas Mann on the founding advisory board of the First Humanist Society of New York.

Julian Huxley took interest in investigating parapsychology and spiritualism. He joined the Society for Psychical Research in 1928. After investigation, Huxley found the field to be unscientific and full of charlatans. In 1934, Huxley joined the International Institute for Psychical Research but resigned after a few months due to its members’ spiritualist bias and non-scientific approach to the subject.

After attending seances, Huxley concluded that the phenomena could be explained “either by natural causes, or, more usually by fraud”. Huxley, Harold Dearden and others were judges for a group formed by the ‘Sunday Chronicle’ to investigate the medium Harold Evans. During a séance Evans was exposed as a fraud, masquerading as a spirit in a white nightshirt.

In 1952, Huxley wrote the foreword to Donovan Rawcliffe’s The Psychology of the Occult.

Huxley was a prominent member of the British Eugenics Society, serving as Vice-President (1937–1944) and President (1959–1962). Huxley thought eugenics was important for removing undesirable variants from the human gene pool, although after WWII he believed that race was a meaningless concept in biology and its application to humans was highly inconsistent.

Huxley was an outspoken critic of the most extreme eugenicism in the 1920s and 1930s (the stimulus for which was the greater fertility of the ‘feckless’ poor compared to the ‘responsible’ prosperous classes). He was nevertheless a leading figure in the eugenics movement (see, for example, Eugenics manifesto). Huxley gave the Galton memorial lecture twice, in 1936 and 1962. In his writing he used this argument several times: no one doubts the wisdom of managing the germ plasm of agricultural stocks, so why not apply the same concept to human stocks?

Huxley was one of many intellectuals at the time who believed that the lowest class in society was genetically inferior. In this passage, from 1941, Julian Huxley investigates a hypothetical scenario where social darwinism, capitalism, nationalism and the classed society is taken for granted:

If so, then we must plan our eugenic policy along some such lines as the following:… The lowest strata, allegedly less well-endowed genetically, are reproducing relatively too fast. Therefore birth-control methods must be taught them; they must not have too easy access to relief or hospital treatment lest the removal of the last check on natural selection should make it too easy for children to be produced or to survive; long unemployment should be a ground for sterilization, or at least relief should be contingent upon no further children being brought into the world; and so on. That is to say, much of our eugenic programme will be curative and remedial merely, instead of preventive and constructive

Here, Huxley does not demean the working class in general, but aims for “the virtual elimination of the few lowest and most degenerate types”. The sentiment is not at all atypical of the time and similar views were held by many geneticists and by other prominent intellectuals. However, Huxley did advocate a completely different alternative, in which the lower classes are ensured a nutritious diet, education and facilities for recreation:

We must therefore concentrate on producing a single equalized environment; and this clearly should be one as favourable as possible to the expression of the genetic qualities that we think desirable. Equally clearly, this should include the following items. A marked raising of the standard of diet for the great majority of the population, until all should be provided both with adequate calories and adequate accessory factors; provision of facilities for healthy exercise and recreation; and upward equalization of educational opportunity. … we know from various sources that raising the standard of life among the poorest classes almost invariably results in a lowering of their fertility. In so far, therefore, as differential class-fertility exists, raising the environmental level will reduce any dysgenic effects which it may now have

Concerning a public health and racial policy in general, Huxley wrote that “…unless [civilised societies] invent and enforce adequate measures for regulating human reproduction, for controlling the quantity of population, and at least preventing the deterioration of quality of racial stock, they are doomed to decay …” and remarked how biology should be the chief tool for rendering social politics scientific.

Huxley shared the science journal Nature’s enthusiasm for birth control and ‘voluntary’ sterilization.” Huxley’s enthusiasm for centralised social and economic planning and anti-industrial values was common to leftist ideologists during the inter-war years. Towards the end of his life, Huxley himself must have recognised how unpopular these views became after the end of WW II. In the two volumes of Huxley’s autobiography, there is no mention of eugenics in the index, nor is Galton mentioned; the subject has also been omitted from many of the obituaries and biographies. An exception is the proceedings of a conference organised by the British Eugenics Society.

In response to the rise of European fascism in the 1930s, Huxley was asked to write We Europeans with the ethnologist A. C. Haddon, the zoologist Alexander Carr-Saunders and the historian of science Charles Singer. Huxley suggested the word ‘race’ be replaced with the phrase ‘ethnic group’. After WW II, he was instrumental in producing the UNESCO statement The Race Question.

Huxley won the second Anisfield-Wolf Book Award for We Europeans in 1937.

In 1957, Huxley coined the term ‘transhumanism’ for the view that humans should better themselves through science and technology, possibly including eugenics, but also through the improvement of the social environment.

In 1934 Huxley collaborated with the naturalist Ronald Lockley to create for Alexander Korda the world’s first natural history documentary The Private Life of the Gannets. Huxley and Lockley won an Oscar for the film, which was shot with the support of the Royal Navy around Grassholm off the Pembrokeshire coast. Huxley had given talks on the radio since the 1920s, followed by written versions in ‘The Listener’. In later life, Huxley became known to an even wider audience through television. In 1939 the BBC asked Huxley to be a regular on the radio programme  ‘The Brains Trust’ and in the 1950s he was a regular panelist on the BBC quiz show Animal, Vegetable, Mineral? .

In 1937 Huxley was invited to deliver the Royal Institution Christmas Lecture on Rare Animals and the Disappearance of Wild Life.

 

Julian Huxley was a friend of Bertrand Russell and Julian’s sons Anthony and Francis both knew Russell as children.

Anthony Huxley was a botanist. David Wheeler’s Indie obituary for Anthony was published on 4 January 1993:

WITH ANTHONY HUXLEY’s death the garden world has lost one of its most distinguished and knowledgeable servants, who earned his reputation more by his pen than his spade. Born in 1920, Anthony Huxley spent much of his childhood at London Zoo in Regent’s Park where his father, Sir Julian Huxley, was secretary. He was educated at Dauntsey’s School and Trinity College, Cambridge, spending 10 post-Cambridge years as a ‘boffin’ with the RAF and the Ministry of Aircraft, and a short spell with BOAC. In 1949 he began a 22-year association with the mass-selling weekly Amateur Gardening, resigning as its editor in 1971 in order to concentrate more on his own writing.

Huxley’s name is synonymous with erudition and correctness. His books reflect an unquenchable interest in travel (as much for plants as for nature) although at home he remained a devoted committee man, journalist, editor, lecturer and general horticultural factotum – talents fully recognised by the Royal Horticultural Society’s highest awards. He brought a botanist’s mind to the garden and indulged himself in the encyclopaedic world of plants. Seeking directions to his house in suburban London several years ago, I was told to ‘proceed along Villiers Avenue until you come across a front garden resembling a Douanier Rousseau painting’. There was no mistaking the jungle of tropical-looking Gunnera manicata – never commonplace inSurbiton.
 
Huxley wrote, co-wrote or compiled almost 40 books. In 1978 he published Plant and Planet, an immensely readable exposition of the botanical kingdom and its essential bearing on all human activity. This was exactly the sort of text, an equivalent perhaps to David Attenborough’s television programmes – scientific in approach yet accessible to the layman – which has done so much to highlight global problems and focus necessary attention on them. He was in the vanguard of the conservation movement, being quick, for instance, to discourage the plunder of wild bulbs in the wild. An article he wrote for an early issue of Hortus entitled ‘Leave the Trowel at Home (take camera instead)’ sounded a timely warning in theacquisitive 1980s when ‘botanical tours’ were becoming abundant: ‘Patience is what needs exercising, and it is a pity that a handful of growers, mostly cactus and orchid fanciers, should find themselves lacking in this, continuing to create a demand for plants taken from the wild.’

Wild flowers (with cacti and what we have come to call house plants) were a passion with Huxley. He enjoyed writing about them as much as he wrote about cultivated plants. With his friend Oleg Polunin he wrote Flowers of the Mediterranean (1965), with Dr William Taylor there was Flowers of Greece and the Aegean (1977), and with Paul and Jenne Davies he brought out Wild Orchids of Britain and Europe (1983).

There is no doubting that his last great publishing commission, as general editor of the massive four-volume New Royal Horticultural Society Dictionary of Gardening, sapped a great deal of Anthony’s energy during hislast illness. Although he did live to see its publication this year he made no secret of the angst its preparation caused him. Two years ago I asked him if he would write for Hortus an account of this remarkable book’s genesis. His reply, dated December 1990, says, ‘A discourse on how the job was achieved might be refreshing but probably libellous . . .’

Despite the dictionary’s flaws (he was exasperated by errors which could have been corrected), it stands as a permanent memorial to a man whose marshalling of people and plants was seemingly easy and equally efficient.

Julian’s son Francis’s obituary was published in ‘The Guardian’ on 20 Dec 2016 and was written by A. David Napier, Prof of Medical Anthropology at UCL, who completed his undergrad and postgrad degrees at Oxford:

In the early 1950s the anthropologist Francis Huxley, who has died aged 93, undertook pioneering fieldwork among the Urubu people of the Amazon basin. The resulting book, Affable Savages (1956), adopted a new, “reflexive” approach to the study of culture in which the author’s encounters with the “other” are reflected as much in personal reactions as in objective descriptions.

Francis was a pioneer of this form of anthropological writing – a style that much suited his lifelong interest in shamanism and the altered states of consciousness often experienced by religious healers. While this novelesqueway of writing was largely shunned by his contemporaries, eventually it became commonplace.

Francis was also an activist for the indigenous peoples he studied and loved. A Sunday Times article by Norman Lewis in 1969 had pointed to the killing of the native peoples of the Amazon basin and the taking of their land, prompting Francis, along with several other anthropologists and the explorer Robin Hanbury-Tenison, to found Survival International, an NGO devoted to protecting the rights of indigenous peoples worldwide. Over the years Survival International has provided a platform for exposing genocide,violence, slavery and exploitation.

Although Francis and his family were happy to allow themselves to be used to conceal such things in the UK.

Cosmic serpent.jpg

Since 1960 Robin Hanbury-Tenison has farmed over 2000 acres of hill farm on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall with sheep and cattle, diversified with Angora goats, red deer and wild boar from Russia, and later farming energy from wind, solar, water and biomass. In 1982 and 1983 Hanbury-Tenison organised Capital Radio’s Venture Days in Battersea Park. From 1995 to 1998 Hanbury-Tenison was CEO of the British Field Sports Society, now the Countryside Alliance. He organised the Countryside Rally, which brought 130,000 people to Hyde Park in July 1997, and the Countryside March when 300,000 marched through London in 1998. Previous posts have discussed how the Countryside Alliance and Countryside March  were organised and driven by people with interests in the City who promoted themselves as being concerned with Miranda and his metropolitan Gov’ts neglect of rural matters. Miranda’s administrations were clueless and uninterested in farming and the countryside but the Countryside Alliance weren’t representing those who were suffering as a result.

In 1972 Francis was a member of a four person mission sponsored by the Aborigines’ Protection Society and aided by the Brazilian Gov’t to investigate the plight of Native South American tribes. Their report, ‘Tribesof the Amazon Basin in Brazil’ (1973), identified groups threatened by Brazilian economic expansion and described the sad impact on their religious, spiritual and psychological health and wellbeing.

Born in Oxford, Francis was the son of Julian Huxley, the noted biologist and first director general of Unesco, and his Swiss wife, Juliette (nee Baillot), a writer and sculptor. He joined a remarkable dynasty that included Julian’s brother, the author Aldous Huxley, and half-brother, the physiologist and Nobel laureate Andrew Huxley. Francis was also the great-grandson of Charles Darwin’s friend Thomas Henry Huxley, and as a child knew such luminaries as Bertrand Russell and TE Lawrence.

TE Lawrence worked for British Military Intelligence. He was born in a house at Tremadog, not far from where Bertrand Russell, Sir Clough etc hung out in the Cwm Croesor area. Lawrence’s family left Tremadog when he was a young child, but no-one in north Wales ever forgot that he came from Tremadog, there is an engraving and a plaque…

Educated at Gordonstoun, the school in Moray, Scotland founded in 1934 by the educationist Kurt Hahn after he left Germany, Francis joined the Royal Navy in 1943 as assistant navigating officer on HMS Ramilles. In 1946 he went to Balliol College, Oxford, where he gained a degree in zoology, working under Peter Medawar, who regretted that Francis did not continue in that field.

In 1958, while undertaking an anthropological study of Weyburn hospital, Saskatchewan, Francis participated in Humphrey Osmond’s research on the therapeutic value of LSD for alcohol addiction. Indeed, Francis was the family’s true pioneer of the psyche, counting the radical psychoanalyst RD Laing amongst his closest friends. As director of studies at Laing’s London-based Philadelphia Association (1972-82), Francis acted as teacher, supervisor, therapist, and writer. In 1984 he returned to Oxford to give a well received lecture on Psychoanalysis and Anthropology.

Previous posts have discussed LSD therapy, Laing, the Philadelphia Association, Joe Burke etc. They were connected with the Gang and at one point Dafydd became a Laingian. Some of the Croesor crowd knew Laing and Francis Huxley will have known Isabel Emmett, the social anthropologist at Manchester University who married a local man from Croesor. Isabel wrote the famous 1964 community study of Cwm Croesor/Llanfrothen, ‘A North Wales Village, A Social Anthropological Study’ and she mentioned in the book that certain Top Docs and lawyers were so powerful that local people didn’t dare cross them. I suspected that she was referring to Dafydd and Gwynne when I first read Isabel’s book and I wondered why she wasn’t braver in print, because she undoubtedly knew about the North Wales Hospital. See post ‘How No-One Knew About Dr Dafydd Alun Jones’. I didn’t know until recently that Isabel was Of Those who utilised Dafydd and Gwynne’s services. See ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’ Isabel knew Eric Sunderland who was an anthropologist and I am sure that Eric would not have missed the opportunity of ingratiating himself to Francis Huxley.

Huxley retired to New Mexico in 1990, and to California in 2006. ‘The Mutual Self’, his last unfinished book, is a musing on the fact that: “We swim in a sea of mutualities whether we like it or not, and mutuality changes us as we change each other.”

Though his third marriage, to Adele Getty, ended in divorce – as did his first two – she looked after him throughout his final decade. Above all, Francis will be remembered for his insatiable desire to know things and for his wholesome and robust laugh.

The biologists at Bangor will have been cowed by the very mention of Julian Huxley’s name and a number of them might well have known him.

From such stock did Andrew Huxley arise. After Westminster School, Andrew Fielding Huxley went to Trinity College, Cambridge where he joined Alan Hodgkin studying nerve impulses. Soon after the outbreak of WW II, Huxley was recruited by the British Anti-Aircraft Command and later transferred to the Admiralty. After WW II, Huxley resumed research at Cambridge University, where he developed interference microscopy, suitable for studying muscle fibres.

In 1952, Andrew Huxley was joined by German physiologist Rolf Niedergerke. In 1954 they discovered the mechanism of muscle contraction, the ‘sliding filament theory’, the foundation of modern understanding of muscle mechanics. In 1960 Huxley became Head of the Department of Physiology at UCL. Huxley was elected FRS in 1955, served on the Council of the Royal Society, 1960-62 and was President of the Royal Society in 1980. The Royal Society awarded him the Copley Medal in 1973 for his collective contributions to the understanding of nerve impulses and muscle contraction.

Huxley was conferred a Knight Bachelor by Lilibet in 1974 and was appointed to the Order of Merit in 1983.

Andrew Huxley was a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge until his death.

Having entered Cambridge in 1935, Huxley graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 1938. In 1939, Alan Hodgkin returned from the US to take up a fellowship at Trinity College and Huxley became one of his postgraduate students. Beginning in 1935 in Cambridge, Hodgkin had made preliminary measurements on frog sciatic nerves suggesting that the accepted view of the nerve as a simple, elongated battery was flawed. Hodgkin invited Huxley to join him researching the problem. The small size of most neuron made it extremely difficult to study them using the techniques of that time. They overcame this by working at the Marine Biological Association laboratory in Plymouth using the giant axon of the longfin inshore squid, which have the largest neurons known. In 1939, Hodgkin and Huxley jointly published a short paper in ‘Nature’ reporting on the work done in Plymouth and announcing their achievement of recording action potentials from inside a nerve fibre.

Then WW II broke out and Huxley and Hodgkin abandoned their research. Huxley was recruited by the British Anti-Aircraft Command, where he worked on radar control of anti-aircraft guns. Later Huxley was transferred to the Admiralty to do work on naval gunnery and worked in a team led by Croesor second homer Patrick Blackett. Alan Hodgkin, meanwhile, was working on the development of radar at the Air Ministry. When he had a problem concerning a new type of gun sight, he contacted Huxley for advice. Huxley did a few sketches, borrowed a lathe and produced the necessary parts.

Huxley was elected to a research fellowship at Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1941. In 1946 Huxley took this up and resumed his collaboration with Hodgkin on nerve signal transmission and continued their work in Plymouth. In 1952, Huxley and Hodgkin published their theory of how action potentials are transmitted and also described one of the earliest computational models in biochemistry. This model formed the basis of most of the models used in neurobiology during the following four decades.

By 1953, with the assistance of Rolf Niedergerke, Huxley began to elucidate the mechanism underlying muscle movement. Around that time, Hugh Huxley and Jean Hanson made similar observations. Authored in pairs, their papers were simultaneously published in the 22 May 1954 issue of Nature. Thus these four people introduced the sliding filament theory of muscle contractions. Andrew Huxley synthesized his findings and the work of colleagues into a detailed description of muscle structure and how muscle contraction occurs and generates force and published this in 1957.

1957 again. Anthony Eden forced out of office by Top Docs in Gwynne and Dafydd’s wider circle, Gwynne doing whatever it was that caused Macmillan to reshuffle his Cabinet, Dafydd qualifying as a Top Doc.

In 1966 Andrew Huxley’s team provided the proof of the sliding filament theory and it has remained the basis of modern understanding of muscle physiology.

In 1953, Huxley worked at Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Huxley gave the Herter Lectures at Johns Hopkins Medical School in 1959 and the Jesup Lectures at Columbia University in 1964. In 1961 Huxley lectured on neurophysiology at Kiev University as part of an exchange scheme between British and Russian professors.

Andrew Huxley was an Editor of the ‘Journal of Physiology’, 1950-57 and also of the ‘Journal of Molecular Biology’.

Huxley held posts in Cambridge until 1960, when he became Head of the Department of Physiology at UCL.  By 1960, UCL had been facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring for decades. UCL hosted the daddy of so many abusive Top Docs, Lord Max Rosenheim (see previous posts), as well as Marjorie Wallace’s husband Top Doc Andrew Skarbek. Previous posts discussed how staff from UCL were evacuated to UCNW during WW II and formed lifelong bonds with the Gang, including a high profile very influential mathematician as well as others… Lord Henry Woolf was a law student at UCL and in his later career made himself useful to the Gang (see eg. post ‘A Trail Of Blood’). Prof Eric Sunderland did his PhD at UCL. Much more recently, psychologists at UCL, including Sarah-Jayne Blakemore, have worked closely with members of the Gang, particularly from the School of Psychology at Bangor University. See previous posts.

In 1969, six years after Huxley won the Nobel, he was appointed to a Royal Society Research Professorship, which he held in the Department of Physiology at UCL.

In 1980, Huxley was elected as President of the Royal Society, a post he held until 1985. In his Presidential Address in 1981, he chose to defend Darwin’s theory of evolution as his ancestor T. H. Huxley had in 1860. Although T. H. Huxley defied the bishops of his time, Andrew Huxley flew the flag for a possibly even more unpopular cause; in 1983, Huxley defended the Royal Society’s decision to elect Thatch as a fellow on the grounds of her ‘support for science’ even after 44 fellows had signed a letter of protest.

Oxford University and the Royal Society were terribly conflicted over Thatch. They hated her for her philistinism and they regarded her claim to be a scientist herself as a travesty. Thatch bagged a mediocre degree in chemistry, she wasn’t very good at it and as soon as she could she trained as a barrister, which was what she had intended to do for years. However there was that matter of Dorothy the bedfellow of so many Communists working for the security services having been Thatch’s tutor at Oxford, the whole lot of them concealing the same slurry pit and then from the spring of 1984, Brown and I refusing to shut up about Gwynne et al and us coming from Tory families who knew some of the people in the Cabinet. I never told the Top Docs that, but the security services knew.

So as with Ken Clarke and the BMA, the battle between Thatch and those supping from what Tebbit memorably described as ‘the well-stocked wine cellars’ of Oxbridge ended in stalemate. Thatch won another election, the wine cellars remained well-stocked and it was everyone else not involved with the crime who was screwed because no-one, left, right or Humanist, would support me and my friends when the gangsters of the Westminster Paedophile Ring came after us.

In 1984, Huxley succeeded his longtime collaborator Alan Hodgkin as Master of Trinity College.

Cosmic serpent.jpg

Huxley’s appointment broke the tradition that the office of Master of Trinity alternates between a scientist and an arts man, although it continued the tradition since the election of Rab Butler in 1965 that the Master of Trinity Knows About Dafydd and Gwynne.

Cosmic serpent.jpg

Huxley was Master of Trinity until 1990 and was fond of reminding interviewers that Trinity College had more Nobel Prize winners than did the whole of France. This is a result of there being fewer people in France who knew about Dafydd and Gwynne as there are people at Trinity who knew about Dafydd and Gwynne, because Bertrand Russell was an alumnus and Fellow of Trinity. This is my theory and mine alone.

See the source image

Huxley maintained up to his death his position as a fellow at Trinity, teaching in physiology, natural sciences and medicine. Huxley also became a fellow of Imperial College in 1980. A great many people at Imperial knew about Dafydd and Gwynne, for one reason because Patrick Blackett’s presence at Imperial was what gave it such an excellent reputation. Blackett’s mates at Imperial knew about Dafydd and Gwynne as did other people such as Prof Wynn Humphrey Davies, the son of a Liberal MP from north Wales and a UCNW graduate who subsequently worked at Imperial and then in retirement spent an era on the Bangor University Council, including as Chair of the Finance Committee. Every decision that Prof Wynn Humphrey Davies made was made with the welfare of Dafydd and Gwynne prioritised, as discussed in previous posts.

From the 1980s, Dafydd greatly benefited from the heroic attempts of Lord Brian Flowers – originally from Swansea but who found himself Rector of Imperial and then VC of London University – to transform every London medical school to serve the purposes of the Gang. Just for good measure, Flowers also served as VC of Manchester University. See previous posts.

Together with the Swiss physiologist Robert Stämpfli, Andrew Huxley also provided evidence of the existence of saltatory conduction in myelinated nerve fibres.

In 1976–77, Huxley was President of the British Science Association.

In 1947, Andrew Huxley married Jocelyn “Richenda” Gammell (née Pease), the daughter of the geneticist Michael Pease (a son of Edward R. Pease) and his wife Helen Bowen Wedgwood, eldest daughter of the first Lord Wedgwood (see also Darwin-Wedgwood family). They had one son and five daughters: Janet Rachel Huxley (born 20 April 1948), Stewart Leonard Huxley (born 19 December 1949), Camilla Rosalind Huxley (born 12 March 1952), Eleanor Bruce Huxley (born 21 February 1959), Henrietta Catherine Huxley (born 25 December 1960) and Clare Marjory Pease Huxley (born 4 November 1962).

Andrew Huxley died on 30 May 2012. He was survived by his six children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His wife Richenda, Lady Huxley, died in 2003, aged 78.

John Eccles won the Nobel Prize with Huxley and Hodgkin.

Sir John Carew Eccles (27 January 1903- 2 May 1997) was an Australian neurophysiologist and philosopher. Eccles was born in Melbourne, initially attended Warrnambool High School (now Warrnambool College) , then completed his final year of schooling at Melbourne High School. He studied medicine at Melbourne University. Eccles graduated in 1925 and was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to study under Charles Scott Sherrington at Magdalen College, Oxford University, where he received his PhD in 1929.

In 1937 Eccles returned to Australia, where he worked on military research during WW II. During this time Eccles was the Director of Kanematsu Institute at Sydney Medical School he and Bernard Katz gave research lectures at Sydney University, strongly influencing its intellectual environment.

After WW II, John Eccles became a Professor at the University of Otago in New Zealand. From 1952 to 1962 Eccles worked as a Professor at the John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR) of the Australian National University. The Eccles Institute of Neuroscience has its HQ in a new wing of the JCSMR building; it was constructed with the assistance of a $63M grant from the Commonwealth Government and completed in March 2012.

In the early 1950s, Eccles and his colleagues performed the research that would lead to his receiving the Nobel Prize.

Until around 1949, Eccles believed that synaptic transmission was primarily electrical rather than chemical. Although he was wrong in this hypothesis, Eccles’ arguments led him and others to perform some of the experiments which proved chemical synaptic transmission.

Eccles was appointed a Knight Bachelor in 1958 in recognition of services to physiological research ie. for being wrong.

Eccles won the Australian of the Year Award in 1963, the same year in which he won the Nobel Prize.

Where would we have been if Eccles had not been wrong for such a long time, causing everyone to realise that he was wrong and thus setting the world on the path to the truth.

In 1964, Eccles became an honorary member of the American Philosophical Society, and in 1966 he moved to the United States to work at the Institute for Biomedical Research in Chicago. Unhappy with the working conditions there, he left to become a Professor at the University of Buffalo from 1968 until he retired in 1975. After retirement, Eccles moved to Switzerland and wrote on the mind-body problem.

In 1981, Eccles became a founding member of the World Cultural Council.

In 1990 Eccles was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) in recognition of service to science, particularly in the field of neurophysiology.

John Eccles died on 2 May 1997 in Tenero-Contra, Locarno, Switzerland. Ronnie Waterhouse opened his Inquiry in Jan 1997 and suddenly suspended it in March, announcing that he was off to Hong Kong for a short holiday. While in Hong Kong, Ronnie bumped into Derry Irvine and they met for a meal, knowing that within a few weeks Derry would be Lord Chancellor.

On 24 April 1997 while Ronnie was in Hong Kong, Peter Howarth died in HMP Wakefield, three years after being sentenced for the abuse of boys in his care at Bryn Estyn. Heart attack. Ronnie returned from Hong Kong after Howarth’s death.

Cyril Höschl (born 12 November 1949) was, after the Velvet Revolution the first freely elected Dean of the third Medical Faculty of Charles University (1990-97) and from 1997-2003 Hoschl served as Vice-Dean for Reform Studies and International Relations at the same Faculty. He was the Director of the Prague Psychiatric Centre, 1990-2014 and Head of the Department of Psychiatry and Medical Psychology of the Third Faculty of Medicine of the Charles University in Prague. On 1 January 2015 the Prague Psychiatric Centre was transformed into the National Institute of Mental Health in Klecany, the Czech Republic.

From 2007-2008 Hoschl served as President of the Association of European Psychiatrists, and then from 2008-2009, President of the Federation of European Academies of Medicine (FEAM). Hoschl is a founding member of the Czech Learned Society and from 2004-2011 he was also President of the Czech Medical Academy. Hoschl is a member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts and was a member of the European Brain Council (until Jan 2015). Since 1996 Hoschl has been a Member, and since 2003 a Fellow, of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, UK.

Dafydd and the Gang involved themselves with European psychiatry from the early 1990s. During the Waterhouse Inquiry they used their links with European practitioners as evidence of the excellence of the mental health services in north Wales and Dafydd was described in media articles in north Wales as ‘Europe’s leading forensic psychiatrist’. We thought that it was such a laugh that F rang Dafydd pretending to be a long lost friend from Liverpool University who had read about Dafydd being Europe’s leading and was getting in touch to congratulate him. Dafydd was very suspicious at first and kept interrogating re what years were you at Liverpool medical school etc, so F just went straight in there and said ‘I hear that you’re Europe’s leading forensic psychiatrist Dafydd, I’m so proud to have known you’ and Dafydd immediately dropped his guard and admitted that yes he was Europe’s leading. We told Tony Francis that Dafydd was so mad he believed his own lies, such as that he was Europe’s leading and Francis tried to whitewash it all and went on about everyone believing myths about themselves, so we laughed even more and then Francis told us that Dafydd has ‘had a lot of pain in his life’. So has everyone who has ever encountered him.

Furthermore, not only is Dafydd not Europe’s leading anything, he is not actually a forensic psychiatrist, Dafydd is a general psychiatrist, but everyone was happy to back up the bare-faced lies published in the media about him when the Gang were busy building their business interests in the rapidly expanding EU, including with people at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, an institution which numbered Angela Merkel’s brother Marcus Kasner as one of those who earned his Habilitation there in 2002. See eg. ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’.

 

In The Understanding of the Brain (1973), John Eccles summarises his philosophy: “Now before discussing brain function in detail I will at the beginning give an account of my philosophical position on the so-called ‘brain-mind problem’ so that you will be able to relate the experimental evidence to this philosophical position. I have written at length on this philosophy in my book Facing Reality…. you will be able to see that I fully accept the recent philosophical achievements of Sir Karl Popper with his concept of three worlds. I was a dualist, now I am a trialist! Cartesian dualism has become unfashionable with many people. They embrace monism to escape the enigma of brain-mind interaction with its perplexing problems. But Sir Karl Popper and I are interactionists, and what is more, trialist interactionists!…

Despite these words, in his book How the Self Controls Its Brain, Eccles proposed a dualistic mechanism of mind.

Eccles had nine children. Eccles married Irene Eccles in 1928 and divorced in 1968. After his divorce in 1968, Eccles married Helena Táboríková; a fellow neuropsychologist and M.D. of Charles University. The two often collaborated in research and they remained married until his death a few days after Peter Howarth pegged out. Eccles was buried in Switzerland.

Now for Sir Bernard Katz, Eccles’s junior colleague. Bernard Katz (26 March 1911-20 April 2003) was a German-born Australian Top Doc who shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1970 with Julius Axelrod and Ulf von Euler. Bernard Katz’s obituary that appeared in ‘The Guardian’, written by Anthony Tucker, tells us much:

World renowned for his investigation of the biochemistry of the nervous system and of the function of the mysterious pineal gland in the brain, Sir Bernard Katz, who has died aged 92, was one of the brilliant young German physiologists who sought sanctuary in Britain after Adolf Hitler came into power in his homeland in 1933.

Katz’s discovery in the 1950s of the “quantum” character of nerve junction biochemistry transformed scientific perception of the nature of signal processing in the nervous system. For this work he received a knighthood in 1969 and, in 1970, shared the Nobel Prize for physiology of medicine with Julius Axelrod of America and Ulf von Euler of Sweden.

By the 1950s, unravelling the regulation and transmission of nerve impulses and the biochemistry of hormones controlling brain function had become key areas of research. Two major extrinsic factors were driving this forward: the need to understand the effects on the central nervous system of organochlorine and organophosphorus compounds, the basis of nerve gases and the emerging pest control compounds; and the possibility that detailed understanding would bear rewards in new areas of medicine.

Medical optimism was rather prematurely emphasised in the 1970 Nobel citation delivered by Professor Uvnas of the Karolinska Institute. “It is my belief that in the near future this research on chemical transmission will lead to a better understanding of the intimate nature of mental disease and psychical disturbances. Through these new ways treatment will be opened.” While Axelrod and von Euler worked primarily on the role and storage of noradrenalin as a transmitter substance at nerve ends, Katz studied the biochemical cycle in neuromuscular function of acetylcholine, a substance whose role as a neuro-transmitter had been confirmed in the 1930s by Sir Henry Dale and his colleagues.

Lethal paralysis resulting from the blocking of the acetylcholine cycle is one of the effects of organophosphorus nerve agents. The choice made by Katz in the immediate postwar years was influenced strongly by the department head, Professor Hill, who was not only a great physiologist but also served as wartime cabinet scientific adviser under Winston Churchill and remained an informal adviser in Whitehall’s corridors of governmental power for many years. Uppermost among the mysteries of neural signal transmission was how discrete electrical impulses travelling along a nerve fibre as a sequence of similar “spikes” whose frequency related directly to their resulting physical function could somehow cross the large gap observed at each nerve junction, very quickly and without being changed. Dale had shown that transmission could not be electrical and that acetylcholine was involved. Katz unravelled the detailed biochemistry of the dynamic cycle that carries signals across the gap in the wiring between nerve endings and the “effector” cells in muscle which they control.

Katz’s contribution was built upon the work of many other scientists, but he unravelled the central role of acetylcholine and its key enzymes, going on to show that even when a nerve is inactive, the acetylcholine cycle at junctions continues to tick over, transmitting a tiny reassurance bleep that tells the system that the connections are working. His major discovery was that this “resting” signal depends, not on individual molecules, but on the release of small packets (quanta) of transmitter substance, each of several thousand molecules. When these cross the junction after release from cellular storage vesicles, they release a capacitor-like electrical signal stored on the opposite side of the gap. The underlying enzyme cycle, involving production and inactivation of transmitter substances crucial to normal nerve function, was revealed as highly vulnerable to disruption.

Katz went on to show that the single “packet” of molecules, characteristic of the resting signal, is the minimum amount that can produce a corresponding signal in the receiving nerve cell. As signal strength rises through increased frequency of impulses, this is mirrored rapidly by a stepwise increase in the release of acetylcholine packets across the junction. Katz proved the first perception of neural function at the molecular interaction level, the basis of modern psychopharmacology.

In his later years, Katz sought to unravel the biochemistry of the pineal gland, investigating in particular the biochemical mechanism leading to the production of melatonin, first identified in the pineal gland in 1948. In frogs and other amphibia the pineal acts as a third eye, responding directly to light and controlling skin colour and several other functions. In humans, however, its role remains obscure.

With others, Katz showed that in some mammals pineal production of melatonin is triggered indirectly by light by means of signals from the retina. Like others, he was unable to demonstrate the biochemical pathways of the pineal’s apparent role in early sexual development, in circadian rhythms and in subjective brain function such as mood. However, his interest in brain function and its control remained with him throughout his life.

Katz’s schooling was at the Albert Gymnasium in Leipzig. He then went on to the University of Leipzig, where he graduated in medicine in 1934. In 1935, he left Germany because the Russian-Jewish origin of his family meant certain persecution under the Nazi regime. He chose AV Hill’s laboratory at UCL because of its strong research tradition in physiology, particularly in muscle structure and function.

In 1938, after gaining his PhD, he was awarded a Carnegie Fellowship in Australia as a medical research fellow at Sydney Hospital under Sir John Eccles. There he stayed until 1942. Naturalised in 1941, he joined the Royal Australian Air Force in 1942 and, until the end of the war, he worked on radar in the south-west Pacific.

Shortly before returning to Hill’s laboratory at UCL in 1947 as assistant director of research, he married Marguerite Penly from Cremone, New South Wales. In the immediate postwar era, although based at UCL, Katz spent much of his time working at Cambridge and at the Marine Laboratory, Plymouth, with Sir Alan Hodgkin and Sir Andrew Huxley. They were then engaged in research that unravelled the electrochemical transmission of signals within squid nerve fibres, for which they shared the 1963 Nobel Prize for physiology of medicine.

The Hodgkin-Huxley work on signal transmission in the giant nerve axon of the squid had been made possible by the work of the outstanding British physiologist JZ Young, carried out – like that of Henry Dale – in the 1930s. All the stars in the brilliant postwar neurophysiology group in Britain, of which Katz was a member, were thus truly apprentices to earlier genius.

‘My grandfather was PM when Queen Victoria was on the throne you know’.

Katz was reader in physiology at UCL from 1950 to 1951. He became professor of biophysics and head of the biophysics department at the college in 1952. He was to remain there until 1978, when he became emeritus professor and honorary research fellow.

His publications included Electric Excitation Of Nerve (1939), Nerve Muscle And Synapse (1966) and The Release Of Neural Transmitter Substances (1969). Among awards from America, Germany, Japan and many other parts of the world, he received the Royal Society’s coveted Copley Medal in 1967. He was the biological secretary and a vice president of the Royal Society from 1968 to 1976 and, after his retirement in 1974, remained active in research council and other science administration.

Katz was an intense and intensely private man who played life like a game of chess, a game that, characteristically, he played fiercely and remarkably well. His wife predeceased him in 1999. He is survived by their two sons.

Bernard Katz was knighted in 1969.

Katz married Marguerite Penly in 1945. He died in London on 20 April 2003, at the age of 92. He is survived by his two sons, David and Jonathan. Jonathan is Public Orator of Oxford University.

David Katz has featured previously on the blog. He is an immunologist and when I met him in 1987 he was based at UCL which was in the process of merging with Gwynne’s alma mater the Middlesex. David Katz was a big mate of the cheats and fraudsters at Hammersmith Hospital who were at the time taking phone calls from Dafydd about me which breached confidentiality and God knows what else without my knowledge. David Katz was himself involved with behind closed doors deals and favours with regard to Hammersmith. I had an interesting conversation with David Katz; at the time the Top Docs were Rising Up Against Thatch and the BMA’s  battle with Ken Clarke had begun. David Katz was very cross with Thatch and he told me that the Gov’t was ‘after the London consultants because they don’t like what we do; we look after the poor’. David Katz assured me that Thatch did not know what she was taking on, they would win, hands down, they had their plan ready….

You might have had the decency to tell me that wrecking my career was a central plank of the plan David!

I’ll wait for Dr Katz, Top Doc in UCH/UCL where his dad Sir Bernard – Nobel Prize winner, one of that collection of neurophysiology geniuses, worked for so many years – to contribute to my compensation, seeing that unlike his colleagues I haven’t Told Lies to get it… Dr Katz sat up there with the many other scumbags who were killing patients, trafficking them, fabricating their data, including with Jocelyn Chamberlain, wife of Mr Big of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, for years…

David’s dad Bernard’s senior colleague Prof. A.V. Hill really was something else; a mate of Bertrand Russell’s no less!

Notes
He is notably the father of Polly Hill, David Keynes Hill, Maurice Hill, and the grandfather of Nicholas Humphrey.

Archibald Vivian Hill (26 September 1886-3 June 1977), known as A. V. Hill, shared the 1922 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Hill was born in Bristol, educated at Blundell’s School in Devon and graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge as third wrangler in the mathematics tripos before turning to physiology. Hill was Of Bertrand Russell’s circle…

Hill took the Chair in Physiology at the Victoria University of Manchester in 1920. In 1923 Hill succeeded Ernest Starling as Professor of Physiology at UCL, a few years later becoming a Royal Society Research Professor there, where he remained until retirement in 1951. My post ‘The Great Stink’ discussed the role of Starling and his colleagues in the Brown Dog Affair at UCL, the huge row which erupted over the torturing to death in public of a dog in the cause of a demonstration to medical students. It was cruel even by the standards of the day and it resulted in a riot, protests and fist fights between medical students, suffragettes and anti-vivisectionists.

In 1933, Hill became, with Lord Beveridge and Lord Rutherford, a founder member and Vice-President of the Academic Assistance Council (which in 1936 became the Society for the Protection of Science and Learning). By the start of WW II, the organisation had saved 900 academics (18 of whom went on to win Nobel Prizes) from Nazi persecution. Hill prominently displayed in his laboratory a toy figure of Adolf Hitler with saluting arm upraised, which he explained was in gratitude for all the scientists Germany had expelled, some of whom were now working with him. Hill believed that “Laughter is the best detergent for nonsense”.

In 1935 Hill served with Patrick Blackett and Sir Henry Tizard on the committee that gave birth to radar. Henry Tizard was the father of Peter Tizard, the London paediatrician who was a big cog in the Westminster Paedophile Ring; Peter Tizard’s brother Richard Tizard was a Cambridge academic, a founding Fellow of Churchill College, who had a very great desire to involve primary school children in the JCR. Their brother David was a GP. See previous posts, including ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’. Hill was also biological secretary of the Royal Society; William Henry Bragg (see previous posts for details of the father and son Bragg team, who were also part of the same network) was President.

When WW II broke out, Hill led a campaign to liberate refugee scientists who had been interned. He served as MP for Cambridge University  1940-45. In 1940 Hill was posted to the British Embassy in Washington to promote war research in the still neutral United States. He was authorized to swap secrets with the Americans…

After the war Hill carried on his research at UCL. In 1951 his advocacy was rewarded by the establishment of a Biophysics Department under his leadership. In 1952 Hill became head of the British Association for the Advancement of Science and Secretary General of the International Union of Scientific Organizations. He was President of the Marine Biological Association 1955-60. In 1967 Hill retired to Cambridge. He died “held in the greatest affection by more than a hundred scientific descendants all over the world”.

Hill died five months before Andrew Newton shot Norman Scott’s dog dead and then tried to kill Norman because he had been paid by an agent of Mr Thrope to do so. See previous posts.

In 1913 Hill married Margaret Keynes (1885-1974), daughter of the economist John Neville Keynes, and sister of the economist John Maynard Keynes and the surgeon Sir Geoffrey Keynes.

Sir Geoffrey Keynes was a slightly earlier version of Sir Charles Evans, a mountaineering Top Doc. Geoffrey Keynes worked as a Top Doc at Barts, climbed regularly with George Mallory (see previous posts) and it is claimed that he saved Virginia Woolf’s life after an overdose. Geoffrey Keynes married Margaret Darwin, granddaughter of Charles Darwin and they had five children who all became eminent Top Docs, scientists, writers etc:

Geoffrey and his extended family spent their lives in the bosom of those we know and love, the extended network of grand people who propped up Dafydd and Gwynne… Barts was of course the hospital in which Lord Snowdon’s grandfather Robert Armstrong-Jones trained as a Top Doc and of which his father Ronald Armstrong-Jones was a Governor. Furthermore, Dafydd and Gwynne’s pal Lady Juliet Bingley worked as a social worker at Barts and her father, Reginald Vick, was a Barts surgeon who wielded great influence there for decades and continued to do so after his retirement. See previous posts…

A.V. Hill and Margaret had two sons and two daughters:

  • Polly Hill (1914–2005), economist and social anthropologist who married K.A.C. Humphreys, registrar of the West African Examinations Council. Polly never held down a mainstream salaried job as a social anthropologist but she’ll have known all the right people, the Francis Huxleys, the Isabel Emmetts and the Eric Sunderlands will have ensured that they toadied as well.
  • David Keynes Hill (1915–2002), physiologist and graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge who married Stella Mary Humphrey
  • Maurice Hill (1919–1966), a Cambridge oceanographer who married Philippa Pass. Their daughter is the Cambridge astrophysicist Julia Riley.
  • Janet Hill (1918–2000) child psychiatrist who married the immunologist John Herbert Humphrey.

The Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives Of The Fellows’ online has an obituary for John Herbert Humphrey. Here are the highlights:

John Herbert Humphrey

b.6 December 1916 d.25 December 1987
CBE(1970) BA Cantab(1931) MB BChir(1940) MD(1947) FRS(1963) FRCP(1971)

John Humphrey was born in West Byfleet. His father was one of seven children of the town clerk of Finsbury, London, who attended the Finsbury Technical College and became the chief engineer and later the consulting chemical engineer to ICI.

Finsbury was part of the big north London ring that encompassed the Bloomsbury Group contingent

One of his aunts was also an industrial chemist. John himself was the senior scholar (aulae praefectus) at Winchester and subsequently a governor. His interest in science, his desire to study medicine – and not engineering – as a humanitarian activity, and his concern for the welfare of others, were established there and were much influenced by R L M (Dick) Synge. He went to Trinity College, Cambridge, and obtained his BA in 1937. Like many of his generation, he was moved by the desire for a better society to join the Communist party, but left at the time of the German-Russian pact in 1939. He met his wife, who later became a child psychiatrist, at University College Hospital, her father was the Foulerton research professor of physiology at University College and a Nobel Laureate. Her maternal grandfather, a Nobel prize winner, was J N Keynes; she was a niece of Sir Geoffrey Keynes and a great niece of Sir Walter Langdon-Brown. John Humphrey became a close friend of his father-in-law, A V Hill…

John worked with Charles R Harington, as a medical student… He graduated from University College Hospital medical school in 1940 and was so fascinated by research that he boasted that he did the minimal work necessary to pass. He was a houseman at the Hammersmith Hospital, and was the Jenner research student at the Lister Institute, 1941-42… He was assistant pathologist at the Central Middlesex Hospital from 1943-46, covering all branches of pathology, and was in sympathy with the medical director, Horace Joules…His MD thesis, 1946, was on ‘The aetiology of pneumonia in North West London 1942-44’. He joined the external staff of the Medical Research Council as a bacteriologist at University College Hospital in 1946….

John then joined the National Institute of Medical Research at Hampstead (division of biological standards) where he established, with J W Lightbown, many international standards for antibiotics. He then moved to the Mill Hill site and founded the division of immunology in 1957. He regarded a division which started with two scientists, (Dr B A (Eta) Askonas and Dr Brigid Balfour, who had also been at Cambridge) two technicians and space for 1-2 visiting workers as large enough to be viable. There was no need to submit a detailed scientific programme to the MRC as the philosophy was to support good scientists. He was deputy director of the NIMR, 1961-76, and acting director following Sir Peter Medawar’s (q.v.) stroke in 1969. The substantive post was given to a ‘tougher’ man. In 1975, John was professor of immunology at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School, Hammersmith, and emeritus professor in 1981. He… also supervised the department of haematology.

So John Humphrey knew all about the research fraud, criminality, Hugh Bentall, etc…

The postwar era was an outstanding time at the NIMR. There was a renaissance of immunology and John embodied the pioneering feeling of the period…By way of example, studies with K F (Frank) Austen… work with Stephen Black showed that the erythema of the tuberculin skin reaction could be inhibited by hypnotic suggestion.

This work may now be discredited; at one point the Top Docs attempted to demonstrate that a great many physical conditions were psychosomatic and could be resolved by psychological methods. While such conditions do exist, the Top Docs took matters to extremes and a lot of seriously ill people paid a very high price.

His interest in the localization of antigen in germinal centres led to collaboration with Michael Sela of the Weizmann Institute, Israel…A visiting worker interested in genetics, Hugh O McDevitt, followed up this observation which led to his pioneering work on immune response genes…. Overall, John Humphrey was intellectually generous, did not seek credit for himself and encouraged openness in those around him. He liked medically trained workers and had a flair for collaboration.

A Top Docs’ closed network with extra cronyism then…

As head of division, he helped members of the department to look for important questions and elegant approaches. The number of papers wasentirely unimportant.

That could have been because there weren’t many.

He helped scientists find and develop their own areas of interest, and their own approaches, rather than learn a set of techniques or contribute to the long term themes of the department.

Do want you want, as little as you want, you’re my mates and no-one is going to touch us.

He enjoyed and elicited lively discussion, often over coffee at the bench, but had little liking for regular departmental presentations… 

They didn’t even do the obligatory seminars then.

John’s advice to members of the department who wanted to know what to do next was – to experiment and find out. For him science was fun, both intellectually in designing elegant experiments and discussing exciting ideas, and practically as he enjoyed working with his hands and was a gifted experimentalist. His approach was not primarily theoretical and he emphasized the role of serendipity in biology, i.e. observations made casually at the bench.

While dossing about aimlessly

He had an enormous breadth of knowledge. John was one of the last of the ‘general’ immunologists able to work usefully in many areas of immunology and proud of his range. He was an excellent discussantat meetings and went out of his way to talk to and advise young scientists.

So Humphrey did the jollies with the free buffet and wine and had a good chat to everyone although not much got done back at Hammersmith

The financial stringency and the changing political scene of the ’70s made this general approach less popular, but it is not clear that the more directed ‘value for money’ research of the ’80s provides a better method for studying natural phenomena.

No, it didn’t work as it should, but that’s because the likes of John Humphrey just sang ‘We’re going to tell, we’re going to tell…’ every time that it looked as though the gravy train might come to an end. The whole of UCNW did it en masse, thousands of them and it proved a highly successful strategy… After all, John Humphrey looked like a Clever Scientist:

John Herbert Humphrey.jpg

His scientific standing was recognized by the Royal Society in 1963, by the College in 1971, and by the US National Academy of Science in 1986. He was an honorary member of several societies including the South African Society of Pathology, 1975; the Purkinje Medical Society of Czechoslovakia, 1977, and the Hungarian Society for Immunology, 1981.

John Humphrey regarded the advancement of immunology as very important. Together with Robin A Coombs, he started the British Society for Immunology as a splinter group from the Pathological Society.

Which will have made him seem busy and ensured that no-one was over him to scrutinise.

He was co-editor and assistant editor of Immunology for 10 years. His interest in Eastern Europe facilitated the meeting on the Mechanisms of Antibody Formation in Prague, 1959. His international interests also led him to serve on the WHO expert committee on biological standardization and immunology.

See the source image

He was president of the International Union of Immunological Societies, and chairman of the organizing committee for the Second International Congress of Immunology in Great Britain, 1974. He was also chairman of the advisory board of the Basle Institute for Immunology. He served as secretary of the standing committee on safeguards of the pursuit of science of the International Council of Scientific Unions.

See the source image

John placed great value on his work for peace, but he was not a pacifist. He took part in the second Aldermaston March, and other activities of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND).

‘Just mention my name…’

He was also president of the Medical Campaign against Nuclear Weapons, and wrote against bacteriological and chemical warfare. He repeatedly wrote and acted on behalf of Russian, South American, and other scientists and doctors who had been badly treated.

See the source image

John had developed pulmonary tuberculosis during the war and… severe deafness… Fortunately he had a robust constitution and would work indefatigably even when he had a fever. He was at peace with himself, and had time for many things and for many people. Some time after his brother’s death he became a ward of his nephew and niece, and later brought up his nephew with his own five children. He remained active until two days before his death on Christmas Day, continuing to work with a technician… John’s strong feeling for the world in which we live, his effective desire to help other people, and his sophisticated straightforwardness, provided a model of proper behaviour.

  • John Humphrey died on 25 Dec 1987. So he lived long enough to see Ollie Brooke released early from prison on appeal, after hundreds of Top Docs sent letters to Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane, reassuring Lane that Ollie was a Really Great Bloke. See eg. ‘Oliver!’.

I have not been able to find out anything about John Humphrey’s child psychiatrist wife Janet, other than she died in 2000, the year that the Waterhouse Report was published. Janet trained at UCL which was one of the institutions that facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Marjorie Wallace’s husband Andrew Skarbek worked as a psychiatrist there, so Janet learned alongside the very best. See eg. post ‘One Dangerous Fucker’.

 

Bernard Katz’s fellow Nobel laureate Julius Axelrod was born in New York City, the son of Jewish immigrants from Poland. He received his Bachelor’s degree from the College of the City of New York in 1933. Axelrod wanted to become a Top Doc, but was rejected from every medical school to which he applied. He worked briefly as a laboratory technician at New York University, then in 1935 he got a job with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene testing vitamin supplements added to food. While working at the Department of Health, Axelrod attended night school and received his master’s in sciences degree from New York University in 1941.

In 1946, Axelrod took a position working under Bernard Brodie at Goldwater Memorial Hospital.Brodie launched Axelrod’s research career. Brodie and Axelrod’s research focused on how pain-killers work. During the 1940s, users of non-aspirin drugs were developing the blood condition methemoglobinaemia. Axelrod and Brodie discovered that  acetanilide, the main ingredient of these pain-killers, was to blame. They found that one of the metabolites was also an analgesic and recommended that this metabolite,  acetaminophen (paracetamol), be used instead.

In 1949, Axelrod began work at the National Heart Institute, forerunner of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). He examined the mechanisms and effects of caffeine and during this time Axelrod also conducted research on codeine, morphine, methamphetamine and ephedrine, and performed some of the first experiments on LSD. Realizing that he could not advance his career without a PhD, Axelrod took a leave of absence from the NIH in 1954 to attend George Washington University Medical School. Allowed to submit some of his previous research toward his degree, Axelrod graduated one year later, in 1955. Axelrod then returned to the NIH and began some of the key research of his career.

Axelrod’s work on MAO inhibitors in 1957 led to him conducting the research that laid the groundwork for the development of SSRIs, such as Prozac.

Image result for let them eat prozac

Some of Axelrod’s later research focused on the pineal gland and the role of melatonin in the body’s circadian rhythms. It was upon this research that some members of Vincent Marks’s research team at the University of Surrey were building, led by Jo Arendt and Prof Debra Skene. Vincent was the brother of Dr John Marks, the then BMA Chairman who was doing battle with Ken Clarke. No wonder that team containing Jo and Debra went from strength to strength, I was working in the lab next door, we all shared a tea room and they knew some of what was happening to me at the hands of the Gang. See previous posts for info on Debra et al.

Julius Axelrod was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1971. He continued to work at the National Institute of Mental Health at the NIH until his death in 2004.

Axelrod and Katz shared the Nobel with Ulf Svante von Euler (7 February 1905-9 March 1983). Ulf S. von Euler was born inn Stockholm, the son of Hans von Euler-Chelpin, a Professor of Chemistry and Astrid Cleve, a Professor of Botany and Zoology. Hans was German and the recipient of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1929 and Ulf’s maternal grandfather was Per Teodor Cleve, Professor of Chemistry at the Uppsala University who discovered the elements thulium and holmium.

Ulf’s great-great-great-great grandfather was Leonhard Euler (15 April 1707-18 September 1783), the Swiss mathematician, physicist, astronomer, logician and engineer, who made important and influential discoveries eg. infinitesimal calculus and graph theory, and pioneering contributions to topology and analytic number theory. Leonhard Euler also introduced much of the modern mathematical terminology and notation, particularly for mathematical analysis, such as the notion of a mathematical function. Leonhard is also known for his work in mechanics, fluid dynamics, optics, astronomy and music theory. Euler was one of the most eminent mathematicians of the 18th century and is held to be one of the greatest in history. He is also widely considered to be the most prolific mathematician of all time. Euler’s collected works fill 92 volumes.

Ulf studied medicine at the Karolinska Institute At Karolinska, after his medical training, Ulf subsequently undertook research into vasoconstriction and presented his doctoral thesis in 1930. He was appointed as Assistant Professor in Pharmacology in the same year, with the support of G. Liljestrand. From 1930 to 1931, Ulf undertook post-doc studies abroad. He studied with Sir Henry Dale in London and with I. de Burgh Daly in Birmingham. von Ulf then studied with Corneille Heymans in Belgium and with Gustav Embden in Frankfurt. Euler returned to London and worked with A.V. Hill in 1934 and G. L. Brown in 1938. From 1946 to 1947, Ulf worked with Eduardo Braun-Menéndez in the Instituto de Biología y Medicina Experimental in Buenos Aires.

Ulf’s nose for sniffing out the best mentors was demonstrated when Dale, Heymans, Hill and Houssay went onto receive the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.

In 1981, von Euler became a founding member of the World Cultural Council.

From 1930 to 1957, von Euler was married to Jane Sodenstierna. They had four children: Hans Leo, scientist administrator at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, U.S.A.; Johan Christopher, anaesthesiologist, Serafimer Hospital, Stockholm; Ursula Katarina, Ph.D., curator at The Royal Collections, the Royal Court, Stockholm, Sweden; and Marie Jane, Chemical Engineer, Melbourne, Australia.

In 1958, von Euler married Countess Dagmar Cronstedt, a radio broadcaster who had during WW II worked at Radio Königsberg, broadcasting German propaganda to neutral Sweden.

In 1939 von Euler was appointed Full Professor of Physiology at the Karolinska Institute, where he remained until 1971. From 1953 von Euler was very active in the Nobel Foundation, being a member of the Nobel Committee for Physiology or Medicine and Chairman of the Nobel Foundation, 1965-75.

Von Euler served as Vice-President of the International Union of Physiological Sciences from 1965 to 1971. Among the many honorary titles and prizes von Euler received in addition to the Nobel, were the Gairdner Prize (1961), the Jahre Prize (1965), the Stouffer Prize (1967), the Carl Ludwig Medaille (1953), the Schmiedeberg Plaquette (1969), La Madonnina (1970), many honorary doctorates from universities around the world, as well as the membership to several erudite, medical and scientific societies.

 

Re Everyone’s Big Mate, A.V. Hill, there is of course a plaque:

On 9 September 2015 the English Heritage Blue Plaque was erected at Hill’s former home, 16 Bishopswood Road, Highgate, where he had lived, 1923-1967. Since then the house had been divided into flats and owned by  Highgate School, where Hill was a Governor, 1929-60. In Hill’s time, according to his grandson Nicholas Humphrey, regular guests at the house included 18 exiled Nobel laureates, his brother-in-law, the economist John Maynard Keynes, and friends Stephen Hawking and Sigmund Freud. After-dinner conversations in the drawing room would inevitably involve passionate debates about science or politics. “Every Sunday we would have to attend a tea party at grandpa’s house and apart from entertaining some extraordinary guests, he would devise some great games for us, such as frog racing in the garden or looking through the lens of a (dissected) sheep’s eye.”

A.V. Hill’s grandson ie. John Herbert Humphrey’s son:

Nicholas Keynes Humphrey (born 27 March 1943) is an English neuropsychologist, based in Cambridge, who is known for his work on the evolution of primate intelligence and consciousness. Humphrey studied mountain gorillas with Dian Fossey in Rwanda, he proposed the celebrated theory of the “social function of intellect” and he is the only scientist ever to edit the literary journal ‘Granta’.

Humphrey played a significant role in the anti-nuclear movement in the late 1970s and delivered the BBC Bronowski memorial lecture titled “Four Minutes to Midnight” in 1981.

Humphrey has been the recipient of several honours, including the Martin Luther King Memorial Prize, the Pufendorf Medal and the British Psychological Society’s book award. He has been lecturer in psychology at Oxford, Assistant Director of the Subdepartment of Animal Behaviour at Cambridge, senior research fellow at Cambridge, Professor of Psychology at the New School for Social Research, New York and Professor at the LSE.

Humphrey married the anthropologist Caroline Waddington, daughter of C. H. Waddington, in 1967 (they divorced in 1977). Being married to Conrad Hal Waddington’s daughter will have sent Nicholas Humphrey straight in the Gang’s direction. Conrad Hal Waddington attended Clifton College and Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. In 1928, Waddington was awarded an Arnold Gerstenberg Studentship in the University of Cambridge, the purpose of which was to promote “the study of Moral Philosophy and Metaphysics among students of Natural Science, both men and women.” He took up a Lecturership in Zoology and was a Fellow of Christ’s College until 1942. His friends included Gregory Bateson, Walter Gropius, C. P. Snow, Solly Zuckerman, Joseph Needham, and John Desmond Bernal  In other words, many of the crowd who knew Patrick Blackett et al and were discussed in ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’.

During WW II Waddington was involved in operational research with the RAF and became scientific advisor to the Commander in Chief of Coastal Command, 1944-45.

In 1947, Waddington was appointed Professor of Animal Genetics at Edinburgh University. He stayed at Edinburgh for the rest of his life with the exception of one year (1960–1961) when he was a Fellow on the faculty in the Center for Advanced Studies at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. In 1972, Waddington founded the Centre for Human Ecology at Edinburgh University.

Nicholas Humphrey’s first wife is now Professor Dame Caroline Humphrey aka Lady Rees of Ludlow. Dame Caroline’s mother was her father’s second wife, Margaret Justin Blanco White (daughter of the writer Amber Reeves); she has a younger sister, the mathematician Dusa McDuff and an elder half-brother, the physicist C. Jake Waddington, by her father’s first marriage.

The Dame received her BA in Social Anthropology from Girton College, Cambridge. Her PhD, completed in 1973, was entitled Magical Drawings in the Religion of the Buryat. She received the Rivers Memorial Medal in 1999 and, in 2003, an Honorary Doctorate from the National University of Mongolia. The Dame was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the University of Bolton in 2017 for her outstanding Contribution to the field of Anthropology.

The Dame has conducted research in Siberia, Nepal, India, Mongolia, China (Inner Mongolia), Uzbekistan and Ukraine. In 1966, the Dame was one of the first anthropologists from a western country to be allowed to do fieldwork in the USSR. Her PhD (1973) focussed on Buryat religious iconography and ensuing research topics have included Soviet collective farms, the farming economy in India and Tibet, Jainist culture in India, and environmental and cultural conservation in Inner Asia.

Between 1971 and 1978, the Dame undertook research and official fellowships at Girton College, Cambridge and at the Scott Polar Research Institute. From 1978 to 1983 the Dame lectured at the Department of Social Anthropology at Cambridge University, before becoming a Director of Studies in Archaeology and Anthropology in 1984-89, and 1992-96. The Dame has held the posts of University Reader in Asian Anthropology, University of Cambridge, 1995–98; University Professor of Asian Anthropology, 1998–2006; Visiting Professor at the University of Michigan, 2000; and Rausing Professorship of Collaborative Anthropology, 2006–10.

The Dame co-founded the Mongolia and Inner Asia Studies Unit (MIASU) in 1986 at Cambridge. She retired from her post as Sigrid Rausing Professor of Collaborative Anthropology at Cambridge University to become Voluntary Research Director of MIASU in October 2010. The Dame has been a Fellow of King’s College, Cambridge since 1978.

In 2010, the Dame completed a monograph, jointly authored with Hurelbaatar Ujeed, entitled A Monastery in Time: the Making of Mongolian Buddhism. The book was the culmination of much fieldwork and visits, from 1995, to Mergen Monastery in the Urad region of Inner Mongolia (China), where a distinctive form of Mongolian-language Buddhism has been upheld since the 18th century.

In the 2011 New Year Honours, the Dame was appointed a Dame (DBE) ‘for services to scholarship’.

In 1986, the Dame married Martin Rees and became Lady Rees after Martin was appointed a Knight Bachelor in 1992. Martin became Lord Rees in 2005, so Caroline must now be Dame Lady Lady Professor Caroline. Readers will have heard of Martin, EVERYONE has heard of Martin Rees, he’s That Famous Astronomer.

Martin Rees has been Astronomer Royal since 1995, was Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, 2004-12 and President of the Royal Society, 2005-10.

Martin became Astronomer Royal the year that Bing Spear and Peter Morrison were found dead, the year that Brown was sacked from Aston University and the year that the world was told that the North Wales Hospital Denbigh had closed down and Dafydd had retired when neither was true…

Rees was born in York and his family eventually settled in a rural part of Shropshire near the border with Wales. There, his parents founded Bedstone College, a boarding school based on progressive educational concepts. Rees was educated at Bedstone College, then from the age of 13 at Shrewsbury School, as were so many supporters of the Gang. See previous posts. Rees studied maths at Trinity College, Cambridge and then completed his PhD at Cambridge. After holding postdoc positions in the United Kingdom and the United States, Rees taught at  Sussex University and Cambridge University where he was the Plumian Professor until 1991 and the Director of the Institute of Astronomy.

From 1992 to 2003, Rees was Royal Society Research Professor, and from 2003 Professor of  Cosmology and Astrophysics. He was Professor of Astronomy at Gresham College, London, in 1975 and became FRS in 1979. Rees holds Visiting Professorships at Imperial and at Leicester University. He is a fellow of Darwin College, Cambridge and an Honorary Fellow of King’s College, Clare Hall and Jesus College, Cambridge.

Rees believes that the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence is worthwhile, although the chance of success is small.

Rees has written and spoken extensively about the problems and challenges of the 21st century, and the interfaces between science, ethics and politics. He is a member of the Board of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, the Oxford Martin School and the Gates Cambridge Trust. Martin Rees co-founded the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk and serves on the Scientific Advisory Board for the Future of Life Institute. Rees has been a Trustee of the British Museum, the Science Museum and that job creation scheme for the children of Labour Cabinet Ministers and insiders, the IPPR. Martin is a member of the Labour Party.

Among Martin’s millions of Gold Medals, Awards, Honours etc he was awarded the Order of Merit by Lilibet in 2007 and he won the Templeton Prize in 2011.

As ever, a great many paths seem to lead to a rather less prepossessing creature:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

From 1977 to 1984 Nicholas Humphrey was the partner of the English actress who epitomised the Swinging 60s, Susannah York. I’m not even going to try to map Susannah York’s network in this post. In 1994 Nicholas married Ayla Kohn, with whom he has two children, Ada (born 1995) and Samuel (born 1997).

 

Sir Ralph Kohn who proposed the Blue plaque for A.V. Hill said: “The Nobel Prize winner A. V. Hill contributed vastly to our understanding of muscle physiology. His work has resulted in wide-ranging application in sports medicine. As an outstanding Humanitarian and Parliamentarian, he was uncompromising in his condemnation of the Nazi regime for its persecution of scientists and others. A.V. Hill played a crucial role in assisting and rescuing many refugees to continue their work in this country.”

Sir Ralph Kohn (9 December 1927-11 November 2016) was the recipient of the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement for his work on the part of Big Pharma. Sir Ralph was born in Leipzig. Raised in an Orthodox Jewish family with three other siblings, the Kohn family fled to Amsterdam upon the rise of Hitler in 1933. The Kohns, in May 1940, arrived as refugees in Manchester, via Wigan on the last boat that carried Jewish refugees from Holland to England.

Sir William Asscher, the Top Doc Mr Big of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, who was one the key links between the London medical schools and Cardiff, was a child of a Dutch Jewish family who escaped to England from Holland. See previous posts.

Educated at Salford Grammar School, Sir Ralph won a scholarship to Manchester University, where he obtained a Bachelors degree and a PhD in pharmacology. After completing his PhD, Sir Ralph pursued postdoc studies in Rome with Professor Ernst Chain (whom I will discuss shortly) and at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. Sir Ralph, after a successful stint at Smith, Kline & French, set up Advisory Services, a company ‘that conducted independent drugs trials for the pharmaceutical industry’.

Dafydd’s pals at Hammersmith Hospital had a cosy relationship with Smith, Kline & French. See previous posts…

In 1991, Sir Ralph set up the Kohn Foundation, which supports research and innovation in science and medicine, as well as the arts and education. 1991, the year of destruction for my friends and I, the year that Peter Morrison bagged his K and other paedophiles’ friends did very nicely for themselves, while the desperate scrabble to construct the Gang and all who sailed in her as scientific and cultural giants began…

See the source image

The Kohn Foundation endows several prizes for young scientists and musicians. It supports the Royal SocietyKohn Award for science broadcasting and the Royal Academy of Music Bach Prize and the Royal Academy of Music/Kohn Foundation Bach Cantata Series.

Sir Ralph was elected an Honorary FRS in 2006 in recognition of his contributions to science via the Kohn Foundation. He was also an Honorary Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences.

Sir Ralph was knighted in the 2010 New Year Honours for services to science, music and charity.

Sir Ralph married Zahava Kanarek in 1963 in Amsterdam. Lady Kohn is a Holocaust survivor and lecturer. The couple had three children; Hephzibah (a medical researcher), Michelle and Maxine.

Sir Ralph was a long-serving member of Golders Green Synagogue and an attendee and benefactor of Shomrei Hadath. His main interests were music and singing (as a baritone), chess and studying Talmud. In 2004, he was a guest on Sue Lawley’s BBC Radio 4 ‘Desert Island Discs’.

Ralph Kohn financed John Eliot Gardiner’s Bach Cantatas project:

We should give them [artists] the sort of means which will allow them to lead a reasonable existence where they can devote themselves with heart, soul and body to their work”, Kohn says. “But the patron should not be their possessor. As Clifford Curzon once said: ‘Isn’t it nice that we can give something to young artists so that we can lift them closer to the stars.’ That’s all it’s about.

Ralph Kohn died on 11 November 2016, aged 88.

I’ll just remind everyone of a little something:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

Altogether now:

 

Alan Hodgkin married Marion Rous in 1944, whom he met while at the Rockefeller Institute in 1938. Marion “Marni” Hodgkin, Lady Hodgkin (28 November 1917-11 March 2015) was an American children’s book editor, regarded as one of the most notable and influential children’s book editors of the 1960s.

Born in New York, Marni was the eldest of three daughters of the American Top Doc, pathologist Francis Peyton Rous, winner of the 1966 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine and his wife, Marion de Kay. Marni studied at the Dalton School in New York City and Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania.

Marni Hodgkin’s career as a children’s book editor started in New York, working for Viking Press. She then worked for Rupert Hart-Davis in London. Hodgkin became Children’s Book Editor at Macmillan Publishing Company, which she joined in 1966. Until her arrival, Macmillan had never had a children’s literature department, even though its authors included Lewis Carroll and Rudyard Kipling.

Picture books edited by Marni included Kevin Crossley-Holland‘s The Green Children (1969) and Graham Oakley‘s Church Mouse series. Marni rejected Roald Dahl‘s work twice.
