And Death Shall Have No Dominion

My post ‘He Got On His Bike and Looked For Work’ named a few of the alumni from Oundle, the school attended by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, the Anglo-Welsh landowner in Llanfrothen/Croesor and friend of Bertrand Russell, who was the magnet for the Welsh Bloomsbury Group so ably served by Dafydd and Gwynne during the middle years of the 20th century. See eg. ‘The Village’, ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’. I need to flag something up, something that I didn’t realise the important of when I wrote that post.
Two other old boys of Oundle were Sir Kenneth Robinson and the 7th Baron Newborough. Robinson was of course Dafydd’s mate, the Health Minister in Harold Wilson’s Gov’t who was also a big player in MIND, a member of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and who was one of those directly responsible for letting Dafydd and Gwynne do whatever they wanted no matter how unlawful or dangerous. See previous posts. Robinson was much younger than Clough, but it will have been the alumni network wot did it. The 7th Baron Newborough was six years younger than Robinson, but Lord Newborough owned vast tracts of north Wales, including areas dominated by the gang. The old boys of Oundle will all have been working together, as will be their descendants, because as we know, the crime was so serious and there are reputations at stake, so death shall have no dominion…
Born the eldest son of Sir Robert Vaughan Wynn, 6th Baron Newborough and Ruby Irene Severne, Robert Charles Michael Vaughan Wynn, 7th Baron Newborough, (24 April 1917 -11 October 1998), was known as Micky Wynn.

In 1935 Wynn was commissioned into the 9th Lancers, then joined the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards and the 16/5th Lancers. He was invalided out of the British Army in 1940.

Legend has it that in May 1940, as a civilian, Micky Wynn was given command of a yacht acting as the Air Sea Rescue boat for the Naval air station at Lee-on-Solent. While British forces were being evacuated from northern France, Wynn sailed to Dunkirk and made five successful trips before being hit by shellfire, but just made it to Ramsgate. Wynn then took command of a Norfolk fishing boat and went to beaches south of Calais where it was thought the Guards were hiding in the sand dunes. Wearing naval uniform in case he was taken for a spy, Wynn searched for, but never found, the Guards. The Royal Navy, recognising his abilities, gave him a commission in the RNVR in July 1941.

Thus Micky Wynn joined the Gwynne the lobotomists, the Professor Geoffrey Chamberlains, the Sir Alec Bingleys and the rest of them in the Royal Navy/RNVR, forever committed to keeping the secrets of Lord Louis Mountbatten, the gay spies in the Admiralty etc. See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’.

Stationed at HMS Hornet, a Coastal Forces shore base in Gosport, Micky Wynn was involved with a plan to attack the German battleships  Scharnhorst and Gneisenau. There seems to have been a great many lies told with regard to the circumstances of the sinking of the Scharnhorst, it was all a bit like the sinking of the Belgrano. A great many lives were lost but of the people who did survive, some dined out on the stories of their heroics and did very well for themselves, one such person being Lord Richard ‘John’ Moran, a British diplomat who caused problems by being very undiplomatic.

No-one was allowed to say anything rude about Lord Moran or give him the sack no matter how disastrous he was because he was the son of another legend, Charles McMoran Wilson, 1st Baron Moran aka Corkscrew Charlie. Corkscrew Charlie was Winston Churchill’s personal physician from 1940 until Churchill died in 1965 and it was Charlie who was the source of the allegations that Churchill had a mood disorder. Others have suggested that Charlie was not honest when recounting Churchill’s medical history and was out for personal gain. Corkscrew Charlie was THE Top Doc who conducted the negotiations with Nye Bevan re Top Docs pay and conditions in order to gain the agreement of the BMA members to support and work in the NHS. Other Top Docs as greedy and dishonest as Charlie were involved as well, but it was Charlie who in person clinched the deal and squeezed a great deal of dosh out of the Gov’t for the Top Docs, hence his nickname. For info re Lord John Moran and Charlie Corkscrew, see post ‘The History, Boys…’

 

The plan re Micky Wynn and the sinking of the battleships involved a modified motor torpedo boat, the MTB 74, which was specially built to house torpedo tubes on its foredeck instead of midships. The mission was to fire the torpedoes over the anti-submarine net in Brest harbour where they would sink to the sea-bed and explode after a time delay. The weapons were nicknamed ‘Wynns weapons’. The MTB entered service in December 1941. However while this experiment was being trialled, the ships made the escape from Brest to the Baltic, the “Channel Dash”. Left without a mission, MTB 74 was instead re-tasked to the St. Nazaire raid in Normandy.

On 28 March 1942, Wynn was to play a decisive part in the raid on St Nazaire, the only port on the Atlantic seaboard in which the newly completed German battleship Tirpitz could be docked. The plan, Operation Chariot, entailed the destroyer HMS Campbeltown ramming the gates of St. Nazaire harbour. The ship was to also carry commandos who were tasked with destroying shore-based installations. The charges in Campbeltown would later explode and hopefully destroy the dock caisson. If this was not successful, MTB 74, commanded Micky Wynn, was to be armed with two delayed-action torpedoes to be fired at the dock caisson. Also deployed to the raid were two destroyers, a motor gun and 16 motor launches.

The Chariot force sailed from Falmouth with MTB 74 towed by Campbeltown. The ships were three miles up the Loire estuary before the Germans opened fire, a battle commenced, descriptions of which would go down well in Boys Own War Picture Library. Campbeltown cut through the torpedo net and rammed the dock gates. Micky Wynn had been successful.

Wynn was ordered to return to England. On the way back he picked up two men who were in danger of drowning on the way and came under German fire, which led to another sequence of events in which Wynn triumphed over adversity, while all around him Gerries and cowards did their best to hinder him. Wynn was taken a POW and ended up in the Marlag Nord POW camp near Bremen. After escaping he was sent to Colditz in January 1943 and was repatriated on medical grounds after feigning illness in January 1945. Hearing that one of the plucky Brits who had saved his life earlier was being held in a German naval camp, Micky Wynn volunteered to join the relieving force and met up with him again.

Subsequently it was Victoria Crosses all round for Micky Wynn and his mates.

While researching for this blog, I have been struck by how many people who spent their time participating in serious crime, lying, cheating and deceiving to ensure that a gang of sex offenders could molest whomever they felt like, did the most heroic things during their war service. After the war, these people showed themselves to be of the most appalling character who were incapable of telling the truth. Why should they have behaved any better during the war? Discussions with people who fought in WW II reveal that some people were considered to have done very brave things; there are also allegations that some people hailed as heroes were complete gits and that history was rewritten.

At that time, the hierarchy in the forces was based on class. Posh people did not join the other ranks, no matter how hopeless they were. Posh people will not all have been hopeless in war by definition, but neither will they all have had the fantastic abilities and war records attributed to them. People of my generation grew up around the old soldiers who fought in WW II and I remember very clearly all the signs of what I now know was class bias. Furthermore the qualities needed as an officer were often very different to the qualities needed in the other ranks. I’m not sure what the prevailing situation is now, but it did used to be the case that the officers usually took the credit no matter how badly they had cocked up. It was probably the parallel of ah the doctors they were wonderful ie. we can’t admit to any other situation…

Some of the most brilliant servicemen just happened to be members of the Royal Family:

  • Because they were members of the Royal Family, toadying being what it is, a great many other people could be relied upon to help them out of difficult situations, as described in previous posts.

The above Guilty Men (see previous posts for their biographies) all knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring as well as Dafydd and the gang and they were all among those who were still concealing it when I and my friends came under attack. They knew that witnesses were fitted up and imprisoned as well as killed…

They’re all dead themselves but where reputations of War Heroes and Giants are concerned, Death Shall Have No Dominion.

Sir Alec Bingley served in WW II on the staff of the Commander-in-Chief, Home Fleet. After the WW II Bingley was appointed Deputy Director of Air Warfare. He went on to be Chief of Staff to the Flag Officer (Air) and then Commander of the aircraft-carrier HMS Eagle in 1952. Bingley was appointed Fifth Sea Lord and Deputy Chief of Naval Staff (Air) in 1954 and Flag Officer, Aircraft Carriers in 1958. He was made Commander-in-Chief, Mediterranean Fleet and NATO Commander, Allied Forces Mediterranean in 1959 and then Commander-in-Chief, Portsmouth and Allied Commander-in-Chief, Channel in 1961.

Sir Alec’s wife Lady Juliet was a personal friend of Dom Mintoff, PM of Malta, 1955-58 and 1971-84. Mintoff was a member of the Maltese Mafia, so there are interesting questions to be asked about Lady Juliet’s activities in Malta which included the organising of the building of a hospital and the provision of other welfare services. I was told a few months ago that Malta is a centre for organised crime and has been for a long time.

It wasn’t only the wives of NATO commanders who were mates with Dom. Harold Wilson’s Secretary of State for the DHSS, Richard Crossman was his friend and so too was Jack Jones, the General Secretary of TGWU. See post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’. Crossman was a member of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, Lady Juliet was a friend of Dafydd’s and facilitated the ring and Jack Jones and his other union baron mates used their knowledge of the ring to gain power for themselves.

There was so much dishonesty on the part of this lot, whoever could know the truth behind the war records of the heroes of yesteryear?

I have turned into the barrister played by Richard Burton in the film ‘The Medusa Touch’ in which he causes ructions in the Court when he goes into his anti-war rant and makes reference to granddad’s medals rusting away in the cabinet and gets himself and his client into a great deal of trouble.

The Medusa Touch - Richard Burtons Court Scene - YouTube

I wasn’t even responsible for a rant as good as Richard Burton’s, I just refused to shag two appalling old men and laughed in Court at a social worker who was a member of a trafficking gang when she forgot her own name in the witness box and then started crying.

 

After WW II, Micky Wynn returned to farming and in 1963 became High Sheriff of Merionethshire. The land of Clough and the Welsh Bloomsbury Group was in Merionethshire. Eric Hobsbawm’s autobiography refers to Cwm Croesor as ‘Clough’s Kingdom’. It could have been ironic but I’ not entirely sure.

Lord Maelor the Labour MP for the constituency which included Croesor, 1951-66, off duty, wearing ladies clothes. Lord Maelor died when he spontaneously combusted in Nov 1984. Lord Maelor’s brother, James Jones, was the Labour PM for Wrexham, 1955-70. See previous posts.

In 1965 Micky Wynn succeeded his father as Lord Newborough and inherited 20,000 acres in north Wales. The family estates included the Rhug estate in Denbighshire and the Glynllifon estate in the Caernarfon area. Lord Snowdon’s family seat was near Caernarfon and Ma’am Darling and Lord Snowdon used to visit. Before he married Ma’am Darling and became the Lord of Snowdon, Lord Snowdon was Tony Armstrong-Jones, the son of barrister Ronald Armstrong-Jones (1899–1966) and his first wife Anne Messel, later Countess of Rosse (1902–1992). Tony Armstrong-Jones’s paternal grandfather was Sir Robert Armstrong-Jones, a Welsh psychiatrist and physician. Tony’s paternal grandmother, Margaret Armstrong-Jones (née Roberts), was the daughter of Sir Owen Roberts, Welsh educationalist and hero of the gwerin. See previous posts.

Lord Snowdon, being descended from good gwerin stock, was born at Eaton Terrace, Belgravia. Lord Snowdon’s barrister father was a member of Inner Temple, along with Mr Jeremy Thrope and the Havers’ clan, Sir Cecil and Lord Michael Havers and Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, all of whom protected and concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts.

Micky Wynn’s Glynllifon estate encompassed the village of Llandwrog. Llandwrog is a village that was built to house the workers of the Glynllifon estate; it is a pretty village with matching cottages and looks more like a village one would find in an affluent part of England. The cottages were sold off and Llandwrog has become very desirable among the gwerin; it is a hot spot for the oppressed, including the S4C crowd and of course impoverished Angels who are being forced into the embrace of foodbanks. I lived in Llandwrog for a while and after a few weeks was subjected to much harassment with was topped off by a wrongful arrest. I was told that the prime suspect was a deeply unpleasant Angel who lived near me, but I later discovered that John Sims, a senior Angel in the Drug and Alcohol Team ie. Dafydd’s domain, lived in the village as well.

SAIN recording studio, the business established by Dafydd’s fan Dafydd Iwan, is just down the road from Llandwrog.

In 1976 Micky Wynn was summoned before the magistrates for allegedly firing a 9 lb cannonball across the Menai Strait. The shot went through the sail of a passing yacht and he was charged with causing criminal damage. Wynn denied the charge, protesting that it must have been someone else. He was found guilty and fined. Wynn died in Istanbul in 1998, during the Waterhouse Inquiry and his ashes were shot out of an 18th-century cannon. He was survived by his second wife, Jennifer Acland (née Allen, married 1971), and his son and two daughters from his first marriage to Rosamund Lavington Barbour (married 1945). Micky Wynn’s son, Robert Vaughan Wynn, born 1949, succeeded him as the 8th Baron Newborough.

The naturalist Sir Peter Scott was Micky Wynn’s contemporary at Oundle. See post ‘He Got On His Bike and Looked For Work’. Peter Scott served in the RNVR during WW II:

Steam Gun Boat MGB S309, under the command of  Lieutenant Commander Peter Scott, underway at sea

Peter Scott was the founder of the World Wildlife Fund, who’s President, 1981-96, was Phil the Greek. There was much controversy at the time because of Phil’s penchant for blasting the world’s wildlife to death by shotgun.
Sir Peter Scott served as Chancellor of Birmingham University, 1973-83. It was during those years that Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass found himself going from strength to strength at Birmingham University. The VC of Birmingham University, 1968-81, was Top Doc, Lord Robert Hunter. Hunter had been Field Marshal Montgomery’s personal physician and had spent much of his career at St Andrews and Dundee Universities, when one Robert Bluglass was a medical student and then a junior doctor at St Andrews and Dundee Universities. Wherever Montgomery’s former personal physician was, there was the whippersnapper Bluglass! Lord Hunter was involved in the raid on St Nazaire which made Micky Wynn a hero.
Montgomery spoke out against the legalisation of homosexuality in the UK, arguing that the Sexual Offences Act 1967 was a “charter for buggery” and that “this sort of thing may be tolerated by the French, but we’re British – thank God”. Monty will have been relieved to know that buggery was so unacceptable to Welsh Nonconformists that after the Buggers’ Charter was on the statute books – thanks substantially to Leo Abse, a close friend of leading Welsh Nonconformist George Thomas – Gwynne and Dafydd continued to torture gay men in consenting relationships in the name of aversion therapy at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. While they ran a paedophile ring which provided young boys for George Thomas, Leo Abse and their friends and many other people as well. Dafydd and Gwynne were offered full protection in the face of numerous complaints by Monty’s personal physician and his sidekick Bluglass.

A comment following my post ‘Theatre Of The Absurd’ explained that those we know and love became particularly over-excited with regard to me complaining about Dafydd and Gwynne because they thought that as a child, I had some sort of link to a posh paedophile ring involving Lord Denning and Jeremy Thorpe et al, having lived near Lord Denning and played with his dog when I was little and then spent my teenage years near Jeremy Thorpe country.
Monty lived in Hampshire on Lord Denning’s turf as well, dear oh dear the gang and Thatch’s Gov’t must have been in overdrive.
Lord Robert Hunter was VC of Birmingham University when a member of staff died from smallpox, as a result of dreadful practices on the part of the world leading virologists there, although a rigged inquiry at Gov’t level cleared Birmingham University, as described in a previous post. When I wrote that post, I presumed that the inquiry had to be rigged because no-one would dare admit that the Top Docs playing with smallpox in the middle of Birmingham were doing things that they should not have been, but I wonder if it was also because Montgomery’s mate and a facilitator of the Westminster Paedophile Ring was the VC and had crap all over him?
Readers will be reassured to know that among his other appointments, Lord Hunter was a member of the DHSS Independent Scientific Committee on Smoking and Health, 1973-80. Just to demonstrate how safe our lives are In Their Hands, previously, following the revelations in 1962 of the thalidomide disaster, Hunter had been appointed to the Committee on the Safety of Drugs and was Chairman of the Clinical Trials Sub-Committee. See previous posts for details of the thalidomide disaster, how people were knowingly put at risk and how some of those responsible were then appointed to Gov’t bodies concerned with health and safety and the regulation of medicines. The thalidomiders were fleeced after the efforts of ‘campaigning journalist’ Marjorie Wallace, who was married to a one of the Top Docs running the Westminster Paedophile Ring; the wholly inadequate financial settlement was a result of a rigged process involving the same politicians and lawyers who cheated the Aberfan victims and concealed Dafydd and Gwynne’s crimes… See previous posts.
In later life, Marjorie became a mental health campaigner and used her campaigning to protect Dafydd and the gang; she also became the mistress of Lord Snowdon. See post ‘One Dangerous Fucker’.
Lord Robert Hunter gets a mention in Richard Crossman’s ‘Diaries’. When Westminster Swinger Crossman was Secretary of State in the DHSS, he had lunch with Hunter and Sir George Godber, the Chief Medical Officer, another man who provided Dafydd and Gwynne with armour plating (see previous posts). Crossman mentioned in his diary that he met Hunter and Godber to discuss his ‘new ideas for hospitals’, but Crossman didn’t detail what those ideas were. He did however explain that they went to the Red Lion, that the food and wine were excellent and that the waitresses were nice.
Sir George Godber was one of the civil servants who in the 1940s was involved with the negotiations re the establishment of the NHS, along with Corkscrew Charlie and Lord Charles Hill, the Top Doc who for years was Secretary of the BMA. See previous posts. Godber was a complete shite who spent his entire life protecting a murderous gang of sex offenders and Lord Charles Hill was a greedy selfish git who led the organisation which opposed the creation of the NHS and only agreed to co-operate if they were given a great deal of money. Charles Hill’s friends and colleagues were running the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Harold Wilson only appointed Hill as Chairman of the BBC to ensure that the BBC was in no danger of broadcasting anything that would upset the Top Docs or lead to the exposing of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Hill also provided added protection to the paedophile ring at the BBC which had links with the Westminster ring. See previous posts.
Thus Godber and Hill have been written into history as saints who Did it For The Poor, in much the same way that Lloyd George gained a great deal of excellent PR as a result of the Old Age Pensions, which completely eclipsed some very worrying things that he and his circle were involved with.
Lord Robert Hunter died of a heart attack in his garden in Birmingham in March 1994. So he was out of the way before Matt Arnold, the Headmaster of Bryn Estyn, died from an ‘unspecified blood disease’ in June 1994, four days before the trial opened of his long time friend and Bryn Estyn colleague Peter Howarth, for the sexual abuse of boys in care in north Wales. See eg. post ‘The Banality Of Evil’.
Sir Peter Scott was a student at Trinity College, Cambridge, where his room mate was John Berry. John Berry worked for the security services in the 1930s  – anyone for the Cambridge spy ring and Eric Hobsbawm?  – and became a well-known zoologist and ecologist. Berry was the first Director of the Nature Conservancy Council for Scotland. The Nature Conservancy Council for Wales hosted many associates of Dafydd’s gang and had close links with the biological sciences at UCNW. John Berry did his PhD at the University of St Andrews, which was where Bluglass trained as a Top Doctor while Lord Robert Hunter held senior academic positions there. Berry was much older than Bluglass, but alumni networks of posh universities like St Andrews are powerful things. Whether there is any connection between John Berry and Dr Colin Berry, Bluglass’s sidekick who assisted Bluglass in concealing the criminality of Dafydd and the gang in 1989 (see post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE), I have yet to clarify.
Sir Peter Scott was, like David Attenborough, a familiar face on the BBC re nature and wildlife programmes, particularly those for children, throughout the 1960s and 70s.
Having mentioned so many paedophiles’ friends upon whom Lilibet has bestowed honours on this blog, I keep remembering one of the fantasies of Brown’s brother when he was a teenager. There was a small time farmer who lived near us in Somerset who was notorious for being rough and ready and there were constant allegations that he stole cattle from Taunton market. On one occasion it went around that he had been caught but not charged, but having been caught he was now out of action. A few months after this, he stopped to give Brown a lift and Brown said ooh thanks and got in and noticed that the car was in a very ropy state and they started chatting. The man said the usual ie. ‘you’re Mrs Brown’s son aren’t you’ etc and asked Brown what he was doing, so Brown explained that he had graduated and now wanted to do a PhD. Being conversational, Brown said ‘and what are you doing yourself at the moment?’ to which the response was ‘well I was in calves but I’ve been put out of business’.
This translation of ‘being caught at Taunton market’ caused a lot of entertainment in the Brown household. Even more mysteriously, this man then came into quite serious money, opened a little restaurant and dressed up in posh gear to do the restaurateur bit in the evening. Brown’s brother thought this was the biggest laugh ever and stated that what needed to happen now was for Fatty Plowright – as he was known – to be awarded an OBE and a knighthood and then to have his arrival at a Royal Ball announced thus: ‘Sir Roger Fatteigh-Plowright OBE’…
I’m going to give Brown’s brother something even more extraordinary to consider now. Remember which year it was when Fatteigh came into all that money Brown’s brother?? How no-one quite understood where it came from and that the story of ‘the lottery win’ wasn’t believed by everyone?? Are you thinking what I have recently been told re the source of the dosh???
Fatteigh hit riches after Dafydd et al came after me. Mrs Brown knew Fatteigh’s children and step-children from her parish work in Stogursey. Fatteigh’s step-children were the grandchildren of the lady who used to clean for my granny and grandpa and they knew the man who’s goats I used to help look after, whom I have been told was a member of the paedophile ring in Bridgwater with links to Dafydd. They used to live in the cottage where the man with the goats subsequently lived. One of Fatteigh’s step-children developed serious mental health problems when he was a young man and spent a long time in Tone Vale, the Denbigh of Somerset. I have heard that he’s doing much better now… I don’t have a problem with him, I used to play with him when we were kids, but if he wants to make a complaint about any Top Doctor or other person, he’s welcome to use info on the blog if it helps.
On one occasion, Mrs Brown discovered Fatteigh and a teenaged girl in what Mrs Brown politely described as a ‘compromising position’. Fatteigh and the then teenager will remember it well.
Mrs Brown was found unexpectedly dead in her house in 2005, after the paedophiles’ friends declared war all over again after Brown and I appeared in print discussing the mental health services. Mrs Brown was frail but she wasn’t ill. Before she died she told Brown that the alarm in her house which was used to summon help in an emergency wasn’t working; it was connected to an NHS helpline. I have since been told that it was working but it wasn’t being answered.
Perhaps Dr MacAdam of Nether Stowey could shed a bit of light on this, he was Mrs Brown’s Top Doc for years.
Mrs Brown lived next door to a girl with whom I was friends at school. She was greatly distressed when Mrs Brown died and I was told by a third party that it was she who realised that Mrs Brown had died and summoned help. She had previously been a patient at Tone Vale and whoops that upset with Mrs Brown meant that the Top Doctors descended upon her once more. I have known her for years and while her experiences with the Top Docs weren’t quite in the league of mine with Dafydd et al, I can identify a catalogue of neglect and abuse when I hear about it. When she was young, she acquired a boyfriend whom she met in Tone Vale. He died, allegedly after an overdose, I think in the ambulance on the way to hospital. There was nothing that anyone could have done…
My friend had these difficulties after I began having problems with Dafydd and Gwynne et al. I never told those we know and love that I was friendly with this young woman, but I did used to ring her up and I know now that our phone was bugged and we were under surveillance. Not so long ago her dad died while in the care of Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton. She noticed that the care was dreadful and he died of complications that were the result of a cock-up by the hospital.
One thing that did surprise me when my friend and I were comparing notes on the mental health services was that my friend, like so many in north Wales, had dealings with the police as a result of a complaint by her CPN. While prosecuting one’s own patients has become increasingly common across the UK after having been successfully pioneered by the paedophile gang in north Wales, my friend was the subject of a complaint to the police for something that would have made Gwynedd Social Services proud: for shouting at the CPN when the CPN was in my friend’s house, after initially refusing to let the CPN into her house because my friend really does not like that CPN. My friend has bipolar disorder. The crime was so trivial that my friend was simply given a caution by the police.
My old school friends in Somerset who knew what happened to me in north Wales seem to have experienced a great deal of distress at the hands of the Top Doctors.
The only surprise is that Miranda didn’t make Fatteigh a People’s Peer. Lord Fatteigh-Plowright of Taunton Market. Here are Lord Tom of Bridgwater, with Lord Paddy of Pantsdown and Lady Callaghan of Nepotism, who All Knew About Dafydd:
Some years before Brown’s brother wanted Fatteigh announced at a Royal Ball, I told my friend at school that my ambition was to hold a luncheon for her at Boodles. I had no idea what Boodles was, but we were reading the Court & Circular column in the Torygraph – a section of the Torygraph which was obviously aimed at schoolgirls in Bridgwater – and there was a notice that Sir Bufton Tufton or Sir Herbert Gusset or someone was holding a luncheon at Boodles and I liked the sound of that. Boodles is of course one of the London gentleman’s clubs where Dafydd’s umbrellas hang out, I expect that Richard Crossman was a regular there. Having found out now how High Society of St James’s actually works, I think I’ll give Boodles a miss and take my friend somewhere else. We’ll go to Greggs, where we can pretend to be Tom King’s wife and have a sausage roll.

Sir Edward Dillon Lott du Cann, KBE, crook and Tory MP for Taunton, 1956-87 (see previous posts):
Du Cann served in the RNVR, like so many… He was a student at St John’s College, Oxford, where he was a friend of Kingsley Amis. Sir Idwal Vaughan Pugh (10 February 1918-21 April 2010) was Permanent Secretary at the Welsh Office, 1969-70 and served as Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration and Health Service Commissioner for England, Scotland and Wales, 1976-Dec 1978. There were no investigations into Dafydd and Gwynne while Idwal was in charge. Idwal was the son of a school teacher from Blaenau Ffestiniog, a town just down the road from Clough’s Kingdom, who grew up in south Wales in George Thomas Central. See post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’ for details of the horrors which Idwal managed to ignore and his links to Dafydd and associates.
Kingsley Amis was pals with du Cann, but even closer to another student when Amis was at St John’s, namely Philip Larkin. My post ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’ discusses the well-known poets with whom Harold Wilson’s wife Mary was friendly, being a poet herself, including John Betjamin, the father of Candida Lycett-Green, one of the founders of ‘Private Eye’ (see previous posts). The founders of the Eye did know about the Westminster Paedophile Ring but never published anything about it. Not even when they were given the Jeremy Thorpe story in the 1960s. Ronnie Waterhouse worked as a libel reader for the Eye.
Philip Larkin for years was the librarian at Hull University, an institution in which senior staff were colluding with the trafficking ring in Yorkshire of which Savile was the ringleader. Larkin’s long-term mistress was Monica Jones (see previous posts) who worked at Leicester University. Monica lived near Brown when he had so much aggro and obstruction as a PhD student at Leicester University. See eg. post ‘Life In Cold Blood’.
Kingsley Amis was a member of the Communist Party, 1941-56, so knew Eric Hobsbawm, E.P. Thompson, Uncle Harry’s nephew’s dad et al as detailed in previous posts eg. ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’. Amis worked as a lecturer at University College, Swansea, 1949-61. Rhodri Morgan’s mum and dad were both students at Swansea and his dad stayed joined the academic staff there. Rhodri’s brother Prys Morgan also ended up on the academic staff at Swansea and became a Professor of History there. Prys Morgan was a student at St John’s College Oxford…

Rhodri’s parents’ time at Swansea overlapped with the years when Dafydd’s mate Saunders Lewis worked there. Saunders Lewis was also mates with J.E.

Saunders Lewis lived until Oct 1995, so not only was he around to assist the gang after the investigations and inquiries had begun, but Saunders was still busy when Carlo was appointed the Chancellor of the University of Wales, in 1976; Swansea was one of the constituent colleges of the University of Wales, as well as UCNW.

During 1958–59 Amis was Visiting Fellow at Princeton University and a visiting lecturer in other north-eastern universities. After 13 years at Swansea, Amis became a Fellow of Peterhouse, Cambridge, 1961–1963. He found Cambridge an academic and social disappointment and resigned in 1963 and moved to London. Peterhouse was an institution where the dons and students had an interesting past-time of partying while dressed in ladies’ clothes and when doing this they went under girls’ names. Michael Portillo went to Peterhouse. See previous posts…

In 1963, Amis separated from his wife Hilary and moved in with the novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard. Amis divorced Hilary in 1965 and married Howard the same year. In 1968 he moved with Howard to Lemmons, a house in Barnet, north London. She and Amis divorced in 1983. In his last years, Kingsley Amis shared a house with his first wife Hilary and her third husband, Alastair Boyd, 7th Baron Kilmarnock.

Alastair Ivor Gilbert Boyd, 7th Baron Kilmarnock (11 May 1927-19 March 2009) was Chief of the Clan Boyd. Boyd was an aristo and served as a pageboy at the coronation of King George VI. He was educated at Bradfield College and King’s College, Cambridge and was commissioned into the Irish Guards, 1946-48. Boyd married Diana Mary Gibson in 1954 but the marriage was dissolved in 1970. He married Hilary in 1977. Boyd lived for much of his life in Andalusia, where he variously ran a tapas bar and a language school. After inheriting his father’s title in 1975, Alastair Boyd took his seat in Lords, eventually joining the SDP. He served as the SDP’s Chief Whip in the Lords, 1983 -86. Boyd was the Deputy Leader of the SDP Peers, 1986–87 and served as the Chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on AIDS, 1987-96.
The Gang Of Four based their whole strategy for electoral success on their knowledge of the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see eg. ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’), of which Woy was a member and Dr Death one of the Top Docs who’s mates were running it, including Death’s pals in north Wales.
Michael Adler was a Top Doc who made his names as a pioneer in the field of AIDS, when rent boys first began dying from AIDS in the mid-late 1980s in London. Adler knew that many of them had become infected after being forced into sex work when they were in care, including many from north Wales. The first AIDS wards were at the Middlesex Hospital, which was where Gwynne had trained; the Middlesex’s network protected Gwynne for the rest of his career. Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain was one of those who worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School who was colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring, as well as Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Chamberlain’s wife Jocelyn worked at the Middlesex, where she was one of those who developed the cervical cancer screening programme, which has Saved Lives and would Save Even More Lives if only those silly women weren’t Refusing Invitations because they are Ashamed Of Their Bodies.
Please wake up everyone, this lot were running a sex abuse ring and faking their data. Do you REALLY believe that they came up with an idea that would involve every woman in the country being ordered to have gynaecological exams lest they develop a condition which is not THAT common and from which some of them will definitely not be at risk anyway and then didn’t bother to publicise the fact that they didn’t have enough staff in the labs to run the programme, simply out of the goodness of their hearts? If they had really wanted to Save Lives, they would have been screaming at the tops of their voices about the laughable pay that was offered to the lab technicians that made in almost impossible to recruit; there would have been the sort of noise that there is at present over the shortage of midwives.
Michael Adler is married to Baroness Margaret Jay, who was also involved with AIDS work. Miranda made the Baroness a Health Minister when he became PM in 1997. The Baroness, like Michael Adler, knew how so many of the AIDS patients became infected. Her dad and mum Jim and Audrey Callaghan colluded with Dafydd’s gang and the Westminster Paedophile Ring and it was Jim and Audrey who, when Jim was Home Secretary, gave Leo Abse all the help that he needed to implement his plan to rewrite the legislation relating to kids in care. This resulted in the Children Act 1975, as a result of which hundreds of kids were sent to children’s homes in north Wales or into the clutches of linked gangs. Dr Death provided the private member’s bill needed to complete the task. See post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’.
Sunny Jim faced accusations of outrageous nepotism when he appointed the Baroness’s first husband Peter Jay as the US Ambassador. It was actually the Foreign Secretary who advised Sunny Jim to do that, one Dr Death. Peter Jay was Dr Death’s friend.
Dr Death was a pal of Crossman’s and was cluttering up the DHSS when Crossman was running it. Death was giving Crossman orders when Death was still a minion. It was Death who advised on merging the Ministries of Health and Social Security to form the super-dept of the DHSS, thus bring everyone who was playing major roles in the Westminster Paedophile Ring into one Dept, which was of course a huge and very powerful one after the merger.
Peter Jay’s mum Peggy Jay knew Crossman and is mentioned in his ‘Diaries’. Peggy Jay was the Labour Chairman of a Regional Health Board, the organisations which ran the NHS until the restructuring of the early 1970s. After the restructuring, the members and Chairmen of the RHBs were appointed as members and Chairmen of the new bodies, the Regional and District Health Authorities. Crossman was friendly with Peggy Jay and her husband Douglas and socialised with them at formal public occasions as well as at dinner parties held by his friends, including Nicholas and Olga Davenport. See post ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’.
After Peggy Jay died, the Torygraph published her obituary in Jan 2008:

Peggy Jay, who died on Monday aged 94, was a grande dame of the Labour movement, known for her good works on a host of local government committees and as the wife of the cabinet minister Douglas Jay.

It could be argued that the second role was the more heroic. She fell in love with her future husband while in her teens and married him when she was 20 – despite his warning that he considered monogamy “a sin”, a belief that he was not slow to put into practice.

Nontheless the marriage produced four children and endured for almost 40 years; and although Peggy Jay suffered much, in later life she was able to say that her former husband remained “the touchstone of my life”.

She was born Margaret Christian Garnett in Manchester on January 28 1913. A year later her three-year-old brother died, to the lasting grief of her parents; that grief, she later speculated, might have been responsible for her “restless, striving spirit, always longing to be recognised and approved of, and above all, to achieve.”

At the time of her birth her father, Maxwell Garnett, was principal of the Manchester Institute of Technology (now UMIST, part of Manchester University). Six years later he was appointed general secretary of the League of Nations Union, and the family moved to Hampstead.

Peggy hated Malvern Girls’ College, and was sent instead to St Paul’s, where she thrived. Douglas Jay’s family lived next door to the Garnetts in Hampstead, and as an undergraduate at New College, Oxford,

New College was a recruiting ground for the British security services; Richard Crossman was a student and a don there and was recruited and then became a recruiter.

he coached Peggy for her matriculation exam. At her coming out party, as she and her “tutor” danced to The Blue Danube, she resolved to marry him.

At Somerville College, Oxford,

Graduates included Thatch and Shirl…

Peggy joined the Labour Party and took a two-year diploma in Economics and Politics. By now Douglas was a Fellow of All Souls. When, in 1933, they married at Hampstead parish church the couple decided to set off for their honeymoon in Italy immediately after the service, leaving Peggy’s parents to host a reception without bride or groom.

In their early married life the brilliant, but difficult, Douglas Jay worked as a journalist; their friends were figures such as the Gaitskells, Nicholas Kaldor, Thomas Balogh and Hugh Dalton.

Kaldor was a mate of Crossman’s and Kaldor’s wife Clarissa was Chairman of a Regional Hospital Board. I hope to cover them in a future post. They were big pals of E.P. Thompson, who had a second home at Croesor. See previous posts. Kaldor and Clarissa, who was a ‘a prominent figure in Cambridge city life’, as was a friend of Thatch and Jimmy Savile who also protected Dafydd and the gang

had four daughters: Penny Milsom, a former London Borough of Islington Labour Councillor; Katharine Hoskyns, who has stood as a Labour candidate for Westminster City Council; Frances Stewart, Professor of Economic Development at Oxford University and Mary Kaldor, Professor of Human Security at the LSE, who has starred in a previous post for her role in hailing E.P. Thompson as the man who saved the world but hasn’t yet been recognised for it.

Anyone else want to laugh at my friend Biggus?

Biggus Dickus (Life of Brian, 1979) - YouTube

Peggy busied herself with voluntary work, and in 1938 was elected to the London County Council as Labour member for Central Hackney. A year earlier she had given birth to their first child, Peter, who would become British ambassador to Washington and economics editor of the BBC.

During the war Douglas Jay worked at the Ministry of Supply and the Board of Trade, and after the Labour victory in 1945 he was appointed an economics adviser to the prime minister, Clement Attlee; the next year he was elected to parliament.

Peggy Jay, meanwhile, continued her career in local government. In 1952 she was returned as Labour member for North Battersea, becoming chairman of the schools’ committee and vice-chairman of the welfare committee; she also served on the children’s committee.

The organised abuse upon which Dafydd’s partner gang in London would build and expand was already present in Battersea in the early 1950s.

In 1964 she was elected to the new GLC. As chairman of the parks’ committee she took a particular interest in the development of the “One O’Clock Clubs” for young mothers. In the same year Harold Wilson formed a new Labour administration, and Douglas became President of the Board of Trade.

The Westminster Paedophile Ring was up and running and about to take off in a major way, because Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson had been appointed Minister of Health.

Peggy Jay lost her seat in 1967. By now her marriage was starting to disintegrate, and she and Douglas Jay divorced in 1972.

Her former husband was created a life peer in 1987,

The year that Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane granted Professor Oliver Brooke of St George’s early release from prison after Ollie had been done for child porn. In 1987, Dafydd and the gang hatched an elaborate plant to frame and imprison me just after the June General Election for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’ but it unravelled when two key witnesses didn’t tell as many lies as they needed to. See eg. post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’

and it seems that Peggy Jay could have sat alongside him in the Upper House. She once revealed: “Wilson was said to have offered me a life peerage. Then Jim Callaghan, who was by then my co-grandparent [his daughter, now Baroness Jay, was then the wife of Peter Jay] said, ‘I’m afraid Harold’s withdrawn the offer because he thinks it would be nepotistic to appoint the wife of an MP.’ And who does he appoint? Barbara Castle’s husband. Bit of a phoney that, don’t you think?”

They were all phonies, worthy of leading roles in ‘Catcher In The Rye’.

In the 1980s Peggy Jay left Labour to join the SDP, principally over the issue of unilateral disarmament.

Peggy found her soul mate, who was a good friend of her son Peter:

She returned to the fold only in July last year, explaining: “I have always admired Mr Brown, and when he became the leader I was extremely pleased. I am so happy to be back with the Labour Party again. It is where I feel I belong.”

Gordon Brown, who’s wife Sarah was a good friend and business partner of Julia Hobsbawm who’s family were resident in Hampstead and Croesor…

As a resident of Hampstead for almost all her life Peggy Jay was much preoccupied with its conservation, as chairman (later life president) of the Heath and Old Hampstead Society. Among the objects of her scorn were a new Tesco Express in the High Street, a McDonald’s and a lap dancing club.

She was chairman of North Camden Community Health Council, taking an interest in psychiatric hospitals and the mentally handicapped. She also served on the Parole Board and as a magistrate.

Oh God, as bad as I feared. The disadvantaged of Camden were preyed on by the trafficking ring operating in the area, with which Dafydd had direct links. In the early years of the millennium, as Rhodri Morgan ignored the carnage at the Hergest Unit in Gwynedd, it was revealed that North West Wales had the second highest rate of suicide among women of any area in England and Wales. Only Camden had a higher rate. Surely Peggy should have been asked to explain this?

Dafydd’s mates Robert Bluglass, Colin Berry and David Mawson were all members of the Parole Board after they had proved themselves by concealing the crimes of Dafydd and the gang. See previous posts.

In 1990 she published an autobiography, Loves and Labours.

Peggy Jay’s 90th birthday party was held at Burgh House, Hampstead, the Queen Anne property which she had helped to save for the local community. At the party her son Peter described his mother as “a dragon descending on officialdom… not a traditional politician, no soft words or kissed babies… but a fighter”.

She was a fucking monster in lipstick. However did that lap dancing club gain the impression that Peggy’s neighbourhood may have provided fertile ground for its growth?

She is survived by her sons, Peter and Martin, and by her twin daughters, Helen and Catherine.

Peggy’s obituary in ‘The Guardian’, written by Illtyd Harrington (see previous posts) told us more:
Peggy Jay, who has died aged 94, was the last of a line of Hampstead middle-class Labour grandes dames whom Herbert Morrison selected, or more likely groomed, to take over the London county council in 1934.
Mandy’s granddad…
After Labour’s national collapse in 1931, this ubiquitous apparatchik knew that County Hall would be winnable in three years’ time, and his plan needed the voice, personality and moderation of the middle classes.
The corrupt abusing middle classes…
Among the recruits to his A-team were Helen Bentwitch, Margaret Cole, Mrs Douglas Bolton (Beatrice Webb’s secretary) and Freda Corbett, later MP for Peckham.
The accessories…

Jay was among his “elect” and her opportunity came sooner than expected. A byelection in Hackney, east London, occurred in 1934. She was thrown into the turbulent and violent world of East End politics, confronting communists and the presence of Sir Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists. In her 20s, she won and arrived before the inevitable Labour LCC victory that year, remaining until its successor, the first Labour Greater London council, was defeated in 1967.

Peggy and co were just as ruthless, it’s why Mandy’s granddad selected them. Neither did they/do they give a damn about the miracle of births among those less fortunate than them. Their granddaughters are hiring  doulas, while in north Wales the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is in special measures because the maternity services were killing mothers and babies.

Peggy was born in London, to the Garnett family, which often served radical causes – an alternative civil service for Labour. In later years, she took pride in her niece Virginia Bottomley’s role in the governments of Margaret Thatcher and John Major.

Virginia the former psychiatric social worker: she concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the gang, lied about Dafydd ‘retiring’ and lied about the North Wales Hospital closing down. See post ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’ Then there are the forged documents that are in my possession, forged by NHS staff and lawyers while Ginny was Health Minister and then Secretary of State. Then there’s the  perjury as well… See previous posts.

Her sister-in-law, Virginia’s mother, became the Tory leader on the Inner London Education Authority. Its predecessor had been inflexibly held by the Labour party.

See previous posts for details of Virginia’s friends and relations, of which there are a great many…

Peggy married the self-assertive economic journalist and later Labour minister Douglas Jay in 1933 and they had two sons and girl twins. Peter shone in his father’s light, as a journalist, TV presenter and ambassador to the US, while Catherine and Helen hit every go button in the swinging 60s. Martin became a designer of seagoing yachts.

Did he know a man called Heath?

Douglas glided along the corridors of power and gave out a brazen and infallible doctrine of social democracy. He was renowned for his parsimony and libido; took his own cornflakes abroad. A member of Clement Attlee’s praetorian guard, he was brought up sharply when he pronounced: “The man in Whitehall knows best.” He represented Battersea North in parliament and Peggy mirrored him as the LCC member for Battersea. She was, at first appearances, haughty, perhaps imperious,

But underneath lay a heart of gold…

but she used the Rolls-Royce efficiency of the LCC to help alleviate areas of poverty, children’s needs and in the field of decent housing for working-class families.

She was just so successful wasn’t she.

Her friendship with Audrey Callaghan

The people trafficker and fundraiser for Great Ormond Street

on the LCC’s children’s committee is still talked about as a partnership of practical compassion for deprived children.

Many of whom will have died young, often in prison or by their own hand, after enjoying Help from Peggy and Audrey’s mates in the children’s social services and mental health system.

Even during the early Harold Wilson years, Audrey and Peggy departed in July for the summer on the Isle of Wight, where they had ancestral cottages, leaving husbands Jim and Douglas in Whitehall.

Nye and Uncle Harry really did do it All For the Poor didn’t they.

Peggy’s marriage ended in divorce in 1972, but she never played the part of the betrayed wife. On one occasion in 1964 it is alleged that Douglas did not want to take her to the state opening of parliament. Peggy, arrayed in formal attire, drove off in his old banger, which “broke down” in Hampstead High Street.

Her friends felt she had been deliberately humiliated;

In which house? The residence in Hampstead? Or the ancestral cottage on the Isle of Wight? Or in Harrods? Or on a yacht somewhere perhaps?

others claim that the offer of a life peerage to Douglas came because of her close friendship with what was left of Hugh Gaitskell’s Hampstead set. The matriarch of the Hampstead Labour party, she left for the SDP after it was formed in 1981, returning to Labour only in the past year or so. She was regal in defending Hampstead Heath and the town from unpleasant encroachment.

Encroachment from the lower orders would that be? Who might have disturbed Michael Foot shagging on the Heath, as he admitted was one way that he passed the time of day?

She was sometimes described as the Queen of Hearts, as in “off with their heads”.

The witnesses to the crimes of Peggy’s friends and colleagues in north Wales were left to die and if they hung around for too long they were murdered.

We became close during the GLC period, and when I pressed for improvements and greater access to the London canal system, she defended me and threw the weight of the GLC’s parks department behind the proposal. Her last County Hall chairmanship, of the arts and recreation committee, was a fruitful three years. Our parks bloomed, events were popular and democratic.

Other people’s kids continued to be sent into the arms of Dafydd and the gang

She coaxed Henry Moore, a difficult man, into supporting sculpture in the parks, particularly in Battersea Park and the spectacular setting of Kenwood, and perhaps most of all One O’Clock Clubs, places where harassed young mothers could bring toddlers for organised activity in the early afternoon.

An invitation from Cruella…

At our last meeting, the funeral of a Hampstead worthy, I told her she reminded me of “the Unsinkable Molly Brown”. A quizzical look and a voice worthy of the headmistress of Roedean replied: “What on earth are you talking about now?” I think she knew. Sadly, no one in our ruling political elite floundering for a definition of community asked her advice.

I can see the horror on her face when I took her to a hostel for the homeless in Stoke Newington. Things changed.

QUE??? I used to live near there, Dafydd sent gangsters after me…

Anyone remember the legendary corrupt and violent coppers of Stoke Newington Police Station? No-one stopped them.

Rhett Butler

Or I can see her encouraging park keepers and gardeners or even, best of all, in recent months staring out a developer who was eyeing up Hampstead Heath. Perhaps that is where she should be buried. She is survived by her sons and daughters

To return to AIDS, a field which benefited from the attentions of Peggy’s daughter-in-law, the Baroness Margaret. Older readers may remember that it was Di who was wheeled out to Shake Hands With An AIDS patient at the Middlesex Hospital to Fight The Stigma. However would a Stigma over such a matter have developed, particularly in Rent Boy Central, north east Wales?
‘Now ewe do realise what it would do to ewe’r standing in the community if ewe’r homosexual tendencies were to become known don’t ewe?’
It is just so sad that so many people allowed themselves to be blackmailed by Dafydd instead of taking a leaf out of Patient F’s book.
‘Ewe lied. Ewe lied.’ ‘I lied – you murdered’.
What was wrong with them all? If Empowered Service Users who’d entered the gates of hell into Risley and the Denbigh Dungeon could roll around laughing at Dafydd, why weren’t those who take themselves seriously in tears of laughter? Every time Dafydd opened his mouth something completely ridiculous came out, it didn’t matter where he was or in what context he was speaking. Meanwhile the Hampstead crowd propped up his empire.

See posts ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’ for accounts of medical services and huge building projects which were funded by Gov’t when the former kids in care from north Wales began dying of AIDS in the 1980s and ruthless local Councillors and politicians in London reminded Gov’t of how those boys cam to be infected with HIV…

 

Sir Kingsley’s son Martin Louis Amis (born 25 August 1949) has spent his adult life under discussion with regard to whether he is as obnoxious and misogynistic as his father. His name was cleared in the eyes of some by having a relationship with Germaine Greer, but in the eyes of those who hate Germaine Greer, this just contributed to the evidence that he was. One of Martin’s novels is ‘Money: A Suicide Note’ (1984). The paedophiles’ friends opened fire on Brown and me big time in 1984, after we complained about Gwynne the lobotomist. Gwynne pegged out in 1986, an attempt to rewrite his place in history was undertaken, the only problem being the existence of people like Brown and I who wouldn’t shut up about him and the gang. My post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’ discusses the many attempts to silence us, including that plan and subsequent attempt to frame and imprison me in July 1987.

In June 1987, the man who’s family and friends ran Swansea University (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’) was elected the Labour MP for Cardiff West, George Thomas’s former constituency.

Martin Amis spent part of his school days at Bishop Gore School aka Swansea Grammar. Bishop Gore has educated many people who later achieved seniority and influence, including Lord Brian Flowers. Flowers was a physicist but in his position as Rector of Imperial College and then VC of London University, Flowers presided over the Top Docs who were perpetrating medical research fraud and running the Westminster Paedophile Ring and allowed them to continue doing it because it resulted in massive amounts of research funding flowing into London University and a seat for Flowers in the Lords. Just to be on the safe side, Flowers also spent a few years as VC of Manchester University, where Dafydd and Tony Francis’s mates had yet another hub. See previous posts for further details re Flowers.

Martin Amis was Professor of Creative Writing at Manchester University, 2007-11.

Amis’s work centres on the excesses of late-capitalist Western society, whose perceived absurdity he often satirises through grotesque caricature; he has been portrayed as a master of what ‘The New York Times’ called “the new unpleasantness”. Amis and his friends would have done anything to have opposed it, except for er, um, er, but I’m a famous novelist, I don’t want live like an Empowered Service User…

All you had to do Martin was to have grassed up this:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

Martin Amis: A Famous Angry Novelist
photograph

Amis was born in Oxford. His mother father Hilary was the daughter of a Ministry of Agriculture civil servant. After Bishop Gore School, he attended Cambridgeshire High School for Boys. There was an elite sex abuse ring in Cambridgeshire, centred upon Cambridge University where Martin’s dad worked for a short time.

Martin graduated from Exeter College, Oxford. After Oxford, he found an entry-level job at The Times Literary Supplement and at the age of 27 became literary editor of the ‘New Statesman’ where he met Christopher Hitchens, then a feature writer for ‘The Observer’, who remained a close friend until Hitchens died in 2011.

For years, the ‘New Statesman’ was entirely dominated by the crowd on the left who had been part of, or were friends with, the Welsh Bloomsbury Group. Eric Hobsbawm, E.P. Thomson and co were regulars in there and the small ads were for the benefit of people who lived in Peggy’s part of London. Richard Crossman was Assistant Editor of the ‘New Statesman’, 1938-55 and was Editor, 1970-72.

When Richard Webster wanted to trash Alison Taylor and tell the world that there were no serious problems with regard to the abuse of kids in care in north Wales or even in Bryn Estyn per se, Webster published his article in the ‘New Statesman’. Alison sued for libel and won; she represented herself and the New Statesman later admitted that it had published the article on the assumption that Alison couldn’t afford to sue, having been unfairly dismissed by Gwynedd County Council. Which seems to be the MO pf Gwynedd County Council. When I went to see the senior managers of Gwynedd Social Services, Glyn Davies and Martin Davidson, accompanied by my legal aided funded solicitor in the aftermath of me being forced out of my teaching job on the basis of allegations that I was a danger to children – allegations which were known at the time to be without foundation – and over matters of a flagrant breach of confidentiality, Glyn Davies told us that yes, Gwynedd Social Services and social worker Keith Fearns had broken the law and breached all policies, no, there would not be an investigation or any action taken by Gwynedd County Council and if I wanted to take the matter further, I’d have to take legal action for which legal aid was not available and as I was now unemployed Glyn didn’t think that I’d be able to do that. He then literally laughed as we left the office. See previous posts.

I later found out that Martin Davidson, the senior manager responsible for mental health, was married to Nonn Williams, the Director of Social Services for Gwynedd and she had appointed him and negotiated his (generous) salary. See previous posts.

Some two years later I was told by two distraught parents that their daughter had been abused by a teaching assistant in a primary school near Caernarfon. When they raised the matter, they were accused of abuse themselves. I was told that the grandchildren of Dafydd Wigley, the former Plaid MP for Caernarfon, were also at the school, that other parents had raised concerns but the matter was being concealed by Gwynedd Education Authority.

I was forced out of my teaching job in a small private school after I reported the abuse of a child at Ysgol Sir Huw Owen, in Caernarfon. Dafydd Wigley’s children went to Sir Huw Owen, where they were taught by Dr Prys Morgan Jones, the Dean of the School of Education at Bangor University until he retired some years ago. I have been receiving info from readers that Prys, while making every apparent effort to remain on good terms with me, was one of the network who fuelled the fire re baseless allegations etc.

I have mentioned many time that Bangor University was bugged by the security services. A mole has sent me a transcript of an incident that I remember clearly. After I had been forced out of teaching, I returned to Bangor to do a PhD, in the School of Education, which was then the cause of WW III and the demands for Merfyn the VC’s head on a plate. I have been told that Prys was involved but I didn’t know that. Prys went on a cross-country ski-ing holiday just after I began my PhD and when he returned he was quipping that he fell over so many times that if a social worker saw his bottom they’d take him into care. To which I replied ‘we are in north Wales, if you’re bottom is damaged it’ll be a social worker who has done it…’

I’m told that my joke constituted the most blatant threat that the ex-teachers who were Dafydd’s mates and littering the School of Education had ever experienced and so it was all systems go to get rid of me, my PhD supervisor, his wife who also worked in Bangor University and Merfyn.

Well they did it, but I think in the wake of this blog perhaps they realise that they probably should have just appreciated that four hardworking people who had all maintained a silence in public with regard to the most disgusting behaviour on the part of a gang of paedophiles might have had something to contribute to the University.

No they won’t, why ever would I think that any of them have seen the error of their ways?They are petty, small minded, vindictive not very bright and many of them remained silent in the face of serious criminality, why would they ever be regretting any of it?

They’re probably too stupid to realise that they’ve been carpet bombed only as a result of their own appalling conduct.

Geoffrey Robinson owned the ‘New Statesman’, 1996-2008, when it published the libellous article about Alison. Robinson has been the Labour MP for Coventry North West since 1976. Robinson is the seriously wealthy businessman who’s financial dealings with Mandelson with regard to Mandy’s mortgage resulted in Mandy’s first resignation from office. The Mandy who’s dad Herbert Morrison was that mate of Peggy’s all those years ago while Westminster and Whitehall Swung but were firmly in denial; the Mandy who worked for LWT which made a fortune out of its light entertainment TV favourite Blind Date, which starred Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain’s personal friend Cilla Black; the Mandy who served as a Lambeth Councillor, while kids in Lambeth were abused, both in Lambeth and when they were packed off to children’s homes in north Wales. The Mandy who served as MP for Hartlepool, 1992-04, on the territory of Dafydd’s partner gang in the North East of England.

Another of Dafydd’s partner gangs ruled Coventry; kids from Coventry were sent to north Wales as well. Bluglass was assisted by Dr Colin Berry of the Walsgrove Hospital in Coventry in concealing Dafydd and the gang’s criminality in 1989.

Richard Crossman was the Labour MP for Coventry East, 1945-74. Walsgrave Hospital was built while he was Secretary of State at the DHSS, but he didn’t attend the Royal Cutting of the Red Ribbon when it was opened, because that took place very shortly after the 1970 election which Wilson lost so Crossman was no longer in Gov’t. See previous post.

Warwick University is at Coventry. Warwick is a university that takes itself seriously and is a member of the Russell Group. It has a famous business school with such affluent people working there that the car park bears no resemblance to any other university car park in the UK. Warwick University was the location of student riots in the early 1970s, after students discovered that the University had kept secret files on them and that the VC, Lord Jack Butterworth, had been involved with dodgy business dealings. Richard Crossman was good mates with Jack and his wife Doris, but their adventures will be the topic of a future blog post.

The Warwick Events of the 1970s starred Merfyn Jones in his role as Chairman of the Socialist Society and resulted in E.P. Thompson leaving his academic post at Warwick in disgust at the conduct of Jack Butterworth.

Richard Crossman, a member and an organiser of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, was good mates with Jack  Butterworth… Jack was doing such atrocious things that the students rioted and E.P. Thompson published a book discussing the questionable practices of Jack.

Coventry was and is represented by Labour politicians. Coventry is in the most terrible state, it is a city with some of the highest levels of poverty in the UK and the worst health outcomes. Warwick University now has a Medical School, which is of course staffed by World Leading Top Docs. They’re just not doing a great deal for the health of people in Coventry.

Something has gone wrong somewhere hasn’t it.

Anyone for some more Events on a rather bigger scale than those at Warwick in the early 1970s?

 

As for ‘The Observer’, the other organ for which Martin Amis’s friend Christopher Hitchens wrote, Norah Beloff and her husband also worked for that publication. Norah was the sister of Lord Max Beloff who was associated with Thatch and her various think tanks and projects and was also a friend of Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council when the paedophile ring was busy within the Council. See post ‘The International Language of Screaming’ for details of the Beloff family and their network. Lord Max’s son Michael Beloff QC is a colleague of Cherie’s and a pal of both Cherie and Miranda. Michael Beloff was the legal adviser who completely suppressed the Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council, 1974-93. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’

Geoffrey Robinson’s predecessor as the MP for Coventry North West was Israel Maurice Edelman (2 March 1911-14 December 1975), who was born in Cardiff. His parents came to Wales in 1905, escaping the pograms in Tsarist Russia and Poland. Living in Cardiff at the time with that history, Edelman will have known Barnet Janner and his son Greville, Leo Abse and his family and through them George Thomas, who also all lived in Cardiff or south Wales.

Edelman’s father was a photographer. Edelman was educated at Cardiff High School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied Modern Languages (French, German and later Russian). He joined the plywood industry in 1931 as a Company Director and at the outbreak of the WW II was engaged in research into the application of plywood and plastic materials to aircraft construction.

Edelman was a prolific journalist and author of several works of fiction and non-fiction. He also produced screenplays for TV during the 1960s and 1970s. During WW II, Edelman worked for ‘Picture Post’ as a war correspondent in North Africa and Italy.

At the 1945 General Election, Edelman was elected as MP for Coventry West and in 1950 he won the new seat of Coventry North. He was a Vice-Chairman of the British Council and Chairman of the Franco-British Parliamentary Relations Committee. Edelman was a founder member of the Council of Europe in 1949. A lifelong Francophile, Edelman was appointed Officier de la Legion d’Honneur in 1960, having previously been awarded Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur in 1954.

Following further boundary changes in 1974, Edelman represented Coventry North West until his death in 1975.

Edelman appeared on the live TV panel show What’s My Line? from New York on 29 April 1962. Lady Isobel Barnett of Leicestershire who was a Top Doc and a magistrate and had been married to a Leicester lawyer and Councillor was a ‘What’s My Line?’ regular in the 1950s and 60s. Lady Isobel was found dead in her house in Oct 1980, having gone mad in later life, taken up shoplifting, been caught and then killed herself at the shame of it all. Except that Lady Isobel herself didn’t seem to be anywhere near dying of shame, she was rather Rhett about the whole matter until she was found dead. Just after Mr Thrope had got off and at the point when Mary Wynch was heading for her lawyers to begin litigation against Dafydd and the gang. Days after Lady Isobel’s death, the ever caring Greville Janner spoke in the House re the problems of nutters who are caught shoplifting. Greville wanted Psychiatric Help for them and named Dr Michael Tarsh, one of Dafydd’s friends – who’s Expert Opinion had, just four years previously, assisted in convicting an innocent man, Stefan Kiszko, for the rape and murder of a little girl  – as a Top Doc who agreed with Greville that the shoplifting nutters should receive Help from Top Doctors. See post ‘Theatre of the Absurd’.

Maurice Edelman was also President of the Anglo-Jewish Association, and an active member of the Friends of the Hebrew University. He died on 14 December 1975 at the age of 64.

Lord Greville Janner was a man who embraced his Jewish heritage and indeed the Jewish community and held many roles within that community, as did and still do Greville’s family.

 

Martin Amis’s first wife was the American academic Antonia Phillips. He had an affair with the writer Isabel Fonseca and eventually divorced Phillips and married Fonseca. In late 2010 Amis bought a property in Brooklyn, New York and in  2012 he wrote in ‘The New Republic’ that he was “moving house” from Camden Town in London to Brooklyn.

In his 20s, Martin Amis had a high profile relationship with Germaine Greer, who was then 37 and a lecturer at Warwick University. Merfyn Jones was a postgrad at Warwick when Greer taught there and E.P. Thompson of the second home at Croesor was a colleague of Greer’s at Warwick.

Two days ago I wrote a substantial piece of text for this post, detailing the many links between Greer and her associates in the 1960s and 70s and their links with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s gang. It disappeared overnight and at present I don’t have the time to rewrite it. So I’ll just ask readers to take a quick look at Greer’s wiki entry and correlate some of the institutions and people with whom she was associated with info re pals of Dafydd’s network in previous posts on this blog. Here’s a few to get you started: Newnham College, Cambridge, Lisa Jardine, Footlights, Viv Stanshall, Oz magazine, Kate Millett et al, the BBC, dinners in Tuscany with Ma’am Darling, Salman Rushie, Harold Pinter, Lady Antonia, it is all there.

Even Germaine Greer was somebody else who was too busy bringing about the revolution to give a stuff about hundreds of women – and men – banged up illegally in the North Wales Hospital by a gang of sex offenders, who really were in desperate need of a revolution, rather more than the folk at elite universities were. Not a word was said, even when Germaine became famous for her books which argued, quite correctly, that the women’s health industry is predicated on scaring women into harmful practices. The people promoting the HRT etc and fleecing fertility patients were the very same people who were running the Westminster Paedophile Ring and protecting Dafydd and the gang.

I can cope with the Little People who are simply far too frightened to challenge Dafydd and the gang, but the well-heeled much feted revolutionaries have a great deal to answer for.

Anyone for an interview with the ‘London Review of Books’? I have a subscription and I enjoy the publication, but gosh there’s a lot that remains unsaid, as Tariq Ali knows.

No-one said a word about life back at the ranch:

THE TRIALS OF GORDON ANGLESEA | REBECCA

  • North Wales Hospital, Denbigh - County Asylums

 

The son of Micky Wynn, the 7th Baron Newborough who was one of those involved with high society Ugandan discussions, is the 8th Baron Newborough, Robert Vaughan Wynn. Lord Robert Newborough spent most of his career in finance, in the global capitalist excesses of the Far East, but in later life he returned to the UK to manage the family estates. As a result of this, Lord Newborough describes himself as a farmer. He owns the Rhug Farm Shop which sells the expensive delicacies, including very expensive stuffed peppers, as described in a previous post.

Farmer Newborough’s main residence was in his house in Shropshire, but he seems to have sold that now, for £12 million. Farmer Newborough produces some excellent PR material to promote his business, which features him, a rather clean and tidy farmer in expensive countryman’s clothes, leaning over a gate chewing the cud or sitting in the cab of a huge, very expensive tractor, ready to go out to do a bit of ploughing. Sometimes Farmer Newborough is photographed in the vicinity of sheepdogs.
Farmer Newborough is an environmentally aware organic farmer who flogs his meat in Borough Market in Camden. I don’t expect that the former residents of Grenfell Tower buy much of Farmer Newborough’s produce, but it’ll go down a treat with the Hampstead crowd, such as Julia Hobsbawm and her mates. I wonder if Tulip Siddiq has ever purchased a bit of Farmer Newborough’s salt marsh lamb? They’re reared on the land on the coastal bit between Caernarfon and Llandwrog. Llanfaglan Church is there, which is the resting place of Merfyn’s late wife Nerys. Who died in 2008, the same year as Peggy Jay, but Nerys wasn’t 94 yrs old like Peggy. Lord Snowdon was placed in the graveyard of Llanfaglan Church as well when he died in 2017, which must have rather spoilt Nerys’s view of the sea. I cannot work out why a man who was born in Belgravia, lived his whole life in Belgravia and died there as well ended up in Llanfaglan Churchyard. It’s almost as if someone wanted to stick two fingers up to Nerys after she died in the care of Dafydd’s mates at the Walton Centre. Or of course piss Merfyn off.
Biggus Dickus (Life of Brian, 1979) - YouTube
I’m still laughing at Biggus Carlo no matter what you have done to us all.
Anyone for a trip to Borough Market for a bit of salt marsh lamb, reared in the killing fields of Gwynedd? I’ll piss on Peggy’s grave while I go to pick up a nice joint.
Do ewe mean mari-jew-ana?
Dr Dafydd Alun Jones
As well as Farmer Newborough’s sheep, that coastal bit is also the meeting place for the class A drug dealers of Caernarfon. I know this because I used to take my dog for walks there early in the morning and I used to watch the young men in their car parked up there waiting for Mr Big or at least Mr Bigger Than Them to arrive from Caernarfon and hand the goodies over. They never hassled me, but by about the fourth time I encountered them I heard them saying ‘it’s that woman with her dog again’ and I thought that they had probably made a note of my number plate so I found a new place to walk my dog. A place which was then visited by a man with a gun.
When I told Someone Who Knows about the class A drug dealers near Llanfaglan and it was agreed that they’d be working for Dafydd, I asked them if Huw Daniel the corrupt judge was being paid off. I was told ‘oh no, he’s terrified of them, they’re killers, they’d kill him as well, he just keeps out of it’.
That’s Huw the No Nonsense Judge Who’s Tough On Young Thugs. As well as on innocent people whom Dafydd’s gang have fitted up.
Snowdonia-Active - News - Activities - Accommodation - The ...
As might be expected of a member of the landed gentry who is an environmentalist, runs a shop which sells expensive organic food and does the farming bit wearing expensive gear while remaining remarkably unsplattered by cowshit, Farmer Newborough is friends with other similar people:
Although Farmer Newborough is now a farmer in north Wales, he does still spend a lot of time in centres of neoliberal capitalism in the Far East. I presume that he goes there to earn the dosh that he needs to do all the environmentally sound innovative things on his farm, because from what I’ve seen of them, they will have cost a great deal of money.
Much to my amusement I’ve been told that Farmer Newborough knows of my existence and furthermore he knew that I was employed at Bangor University on an EU funded project, part of which involved interviews with farmers. Nice to meet you Lord Newborough! I did used to pop into your cafe before I was chased out of Wales at gunpoint. Lest I wish to drop into the farm shop again, could I ask you to reduce the price of your stuffed peppers?
As Farmer Newborough and his Organic chum from Highgrove were, I am told, involved in the war on Merfyn and Bangor University, I’m wondering if Carlo wrote Dafydd the sort of letter that he wrote Bishop Peter Ball after Ball was the subject of a complaint re sex offences. Peter Ball told Carlo that he had made a ‘misjudgement’ and was now being ‘harassed’ by a dreadful person – which was exactly what Dafydd told people about me – and Carlo wrote back to Peter Ball commiserating over the awful pest and offering to help in any way that he could.
Carlo, I didn’t know you cared. I have always considered you to be bonkers as a result of your dysfunctional parents and the torture at Gordonstoun and as you so obviously preferred Camilla’s company to Diana’s I felt quite sorry for you being pushed into an arranged marriage that so obviously wasn’t working. However I think that you really do need to accept that allowing a lobotomist who ran a sex trafficking gang to occupy the Student Health Centre at UCNW when you were Chancellor and joining in the witch hunt against one of those who complained and who would not withdraw her complaint no matter how seriously she was threatened, was not a good idea.
Carlo is not alone. A great many people really have been very, very foolish. They need to stop the How Very Dare Yous, stop the Trying To Get Compensation Then Are Yous and instead do a Christ Almighty What Have We Allowed Ourselves To Get Involved With?
If anyone else wants to laugh at my friend Biggus, let me know.
Biggus Dickus (Life of Brian, 1979) - YouTube
When he was at the DHSS, Richard Crossman used to deal directly with the Chairmen of the Regional Hospital Boards, such as Dame Isabel Graham Bryce and Peggy. See previous posts. Like Bryce, those Chairmen all knew about the abuse and neglect in the long-stay Denbigh-esque institutions in their region and not only were they tolerated, but whenever Crossman dared suggest that their should be an increased investment in those places to improve conditions for the patients, he was met with total opposition from the Regional Hospital Boards and the Top Docs. Crossman makes repeated entries in his diary regarding how bad the long-stay hospitals are, the abuses that he knows that the Top Docs are perpetrating and he does work out budgets which would allow greater investment in the long-stay hospitals. He is met with total non-cooperation. Everyone wants a machine that goes ping, including Isabel and Peggy.
Although Crossman makes a point of telling the Chairs of the RHBs that they can deal directly with him and the Ministers rather than waste their time with the ‘officials’ as well as hosting lavish dinners for them in the best London clubs or other grand places, Crossman doesn’t have a high opinion of all of the RHB Chairmen. Two of those who are not singled out for praise are Audrey Callaghan (see previous posts) and Peggy Jay…
The RHB Chairman were all in post once Crossman had arrived. They had been in their positions when Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson was Minister of Health.
 Crossman does however rate two of the RHB Chairmen very highly, as both being ‘strong, powerful men’. One is Graham Rowlandson and the other is Desmond Bonham Carter.

Sir (Stanley) Graham Rowlandson (25 August 1908-29 January 1986) was a Tory Party member of Enfield Urban District Council, 1934-46, Chairman 1940-2; member of the Greater London Council, Enfield 1964-73, Committee Chair Establishment 2 May 1967, Finance and Scrutiny 28 April 1970, Finance and Supplies 30 September 1969. Rowlandson was High Sheriff of Middlesex, 1958; Liveryman of Worshipful Company of Masons, Master 1964; Liveryman of Worshipful Company of Paviors, Master 1975. Sir Graham was an accountant who founded the RO Group. The RO Group website has the following pics on display:

A charidee is in existence called the Graham Rowlandson Foundation.

On Feb 17 1969, Crossman hosted an ‘expensive and elegant dinner’ for the RHB Chairmen, at which he insisted that Graham Bryce sat one side of him and Sir Desmond the other side. Sir Desmond was an incredibly powerful figure in the NHS at the time. He was Chairman of UCL, which prided itself on being the centre of excellence in terms of research and treatment; previous posts have mentioned some of the high profile Top Docs who trained or worked at UCL/UCH. Some of them were key players in the Westminster Paedophile Ring, including Geoffrey Chamberlain; Dame Josephine Barnes, who was the wife of Ted Heath’s friend and personal doctor Sir Brian Warren; and Marjorie Wallace’s husband, Andrew Skarbek. See previous posts eg. ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’.

Lord Max Rosenheim, who ruled the roost in the medical establishment for years and could make or break medical careers, worked at UCL and was probably the most powerful Top Doc in the place for many years. Lord Max was mates with John Harman, Harriet’s dad. UCL/UCH was located very near to the Middlesex Hospital of Gwynne fame and the medical students and Top Docs of UCL/UCH were good friends with those at the Middlesex. There was a lot of traffick and overlap between the two hospitals. Sir Desmond Bonham Carter knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd and Gwynne. As well as being Chairman of UCL, Sir Desmond was also Chairman of one of the RHB’s in the London area.

When Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson was Minister of Health, Sir Desmond Chaired the Bonham Carter Report, which was the result of the Central Health Services Council establishing in 1966 a Committee to review the role of district general hospitals in the NHS.
Sir Desmond Bonham Carter married Diane Madden. A nursing assistant called Kate Madden used to work at the Hergest Unit; she was a criminology postgrad at Bangor University. Kate witnessed violent assaults on patients by staff and the fabrication of evidence with the intention of securing convictions against patients, but Kate the Criminologist said nothing and joined in the party herself when she was told to. I have no idea whether she was related to Sir Desmond’s wife.
Sir Desmond was the son of General Sir Charles Bonham Carter and Gladys Coddington. Sir Charles was educated at Clifton College and then Sandhurst. He was Director-General of the Territorial Army, 1933-36; Governor and Commander-in-Chief of Malta, 1936-40; Aide-de-Camp General to HM King George VI, 1938-41.
General Sir Charles second wife was Gabriele Fisher and their son, Sir Desmond’s half-brother, was Victor Bonham Carter.

Bonham-Carter also served his fellow authors as secretary of the Royal Literary Fund from 1966 to 1982. The Fund, established in 1790, is a charity that aids professional published authors in financial difficulties. In 1967 Bonham-Carter observed: “We mostly try to help the middle-aged or elderly author who has established his name, but perhaps due to ill-health, or the fact that he has passed out of fashion, has fallen on hard times.”

The son of General Sir Charles Bonham-Carter, who was Governor of Malta from 1936 to 1940, Victor Bonham-Carter was born on December 13 1913. He was educated at Winchester and Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he read Modern Languages in Part I (he was fluent in French and German) before switching to Rural Economics for his Part II. His deep interest in rural matters dated from this period in his life.

After a brief period working for The Countryman, in 1937 Bonham-Carter became a director of School Prints Ltd. The idea behind School Prints was to commission talented artists to create original lithographs, which would be editioned in large numbers and sold cheaply to those schools which were adventurous enough to subscribe to the scheme. Thus schoolchildren would be able to enjoy a direct and continuous contact with good works of art.

Bonham-Carter’s gift for languages determined his course during the Second World War. Having joined the Royal Berkshires he was seconded to the Intelligence Corps, and was based at the War Office. There he assessed information gleaned from the Germans, and was occasionally called upon to question PoWs. After the war he returned to School Prints, remaining there until 1960.

But Bonham-Carter’s great energy never allowed him to concentrate on only one path. From 1947 to 1959 he ran a mixed farm in Somerset. He was also invited, in 1951, to become the historian of the Dartington Hall estate, in Devon, established in the 1930s as a social experiment in resuscitating a rural community. His work there led to his book Dartington Hall, written with WB Curry and published in 1958.

Bonham-Carter wrote a number of books about rural matters, including The English Village (1952), a historical survey of the village up to the modern era; Exploring Parish Churches (1959), described by The Daily Telegraph as “a masterly survey of the whole evolution of the parish church”; Farming the Land (1959), a textbook for secondary school children; The Survival of the English Countryside (1971), an analysis of the historical changes in land use which addressed what would now be described as “environmental” issues; Exmoor Writers (1987); and The Essence of Exmoor (1991).

In 1969 Bonham-Carter (who was president of the Exmoor Society from 1975) started a publishing company at Dulverton called Exmoor Press, which produced 50-page booklets, each written by an expert about life on the moor and some of which remain in print. He sold the business in 1989.

In the field of military history he published Soldier True: the life and times of Field-Marshal Sir William Robertson (1965), and Surgeon in the Crimea (1969), a collection of letters written by George Lawson from the Crimean War in 1854-55.

Among his other books, In a Liberal Tradition (1960) is a history of the Bonham-Carter family using documents dating back to the 17th century, and Authors by Profession (volume one 1978, volume two 1984) is a history of authorship. In 1996 he wrote an autobiography, ‘What Countryman, Sir?’ Bonham-Carter’s last publication was ‘A Filthy Barren Ground’ (1998), the edited letters, written in the 1850s, of the Rev William Thornton, first curate of the parish of Exmoor.

Bonham-Carter was also an able scriptwriter. In 1963-64 he produced scripts for the successful BBC television series The Great War. He also wrote scripts for BBC Radio, and was chairman of a radio quiz programme, County Count.

Victor Bonham-Carter had an enormous capacity for hard work. At their farm in Somerset in the late 1940s and early 1950s the family had no electricity; after a full day’s work on the farm, he would retire with a lantern for several hours to devote himself to his writing.

Although uninterested in national politics, he was much concerned with local issues and was an active member, and chairman, of his parish council.

Throughout his life Bonham-Carter was passionate about music. As a young man he had studied piano under Solomon, and at one time Victor’s mother harboured the hope that he would become a concert pianist.

He married first, in 1938, Audrey Stogdon, with whom he had two sons. The marriage was dissolved in 1979, and that year he married secondly Cynthia Sanford, who survives him.

The Bonham-Carters are of course a famous Liberal Party family. Victor lived on Exmoor, which stretches over West Somerset and north Devon. Jeremy Thorpe was the Liberal MP for North Devon and Norman Scott lived on Exmoor. Andrew Newton, the man who said that he had been paid to kill Norman, confronted Norman on Exmoor, shot Norman’s dog Rinka and tried to shoot Norman.

Helen Violet Bonham Carter, Baroness Asquith of Yarnbury, (15 April 1887-19 February 1969), known until her marriage as Violet Asquith, was the daughter of H.H. Asquith, Prime Minister, 1908–1916. Violet Asquith grew up living in 10 Downing Street when her father occupied it and socialising with the key political figures of her day. She was educated at home by governesses and later sent to Paris and Dresden to improve her languages. Her mother, Helen died of when Violet was four. Her stepmother was Margot Tennant. Violet’s best friend when she was young was Venetia Stanley, who had an affair with her father.

H.H. Asquith was PM at the beginning of WW I and then headed a coalition with the Conservative Party, May 1915-December 1916. The Liberal Party split thereafter between followers of Asquith and of David Lloyd George, who had replaced him as Prime Minister. Ronnie Waterhouse was from a prominent Liberal family and his father was active in the Party when it split; Waterhouse’s father supported Lloyd George. Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies, another very good friend of Dafydd and the gang, after an academic career in engineering in London University, retired to north Wales, was a member of Bangor University Council for many years and was part of the Merfyn Out movement. Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies was the son of Richard Humphrey Davies, a prominent Liberal from Corris in Gwynedd. Richard Humphrey Davies served as Private Secretary to Lord Gladstone in the early years of the 20th century, and later worked closely with both Asquith and Lloyd George in the Treasury and then in the Liberal Central Association. See previous posts…

There was also Richard Davies (29 November 1818-27 October 1896), a Welsh businessman and ship-owner who was the Nonconformist Liberal MP for Anglesey, 1868-86. Davies was born at Llangefni on Anglesey and educated at Llangefni national school. When his father set up subsidiary businesses under the management of his three sons, Richard Davies was assigned to the old ferry-terminal of Porthaethwy, now known as Menai Bridge. This timber importing business developed so successfully that all the family became involved and the business developed into large-scale ship-owning which generated considerable wealth, based to a large extent on guano. Richard’s brother, Robert, was renowned as a philanthropist.

Richard Davies was Anglesey’s first Nonconformist J.P. and was High Sheriff of Anglesey in 1858. He retired from the Commons in 1886, being opposed to the proposal for Irish Home Rule. At one time Davies lived at Bwlch-y-fen, but afterwards at Treborth. Richard Davies was a benefactor to Bangor Normal College, a stronghold of Dafydd and the gang (see post (Thought For The Day’) and to the ‘British’ schools. He was appointed  Lord Lieutenant of Anglesey in 1884.

Davies died at Treborth at the age of 77 and was buried in Llandysilio churchyard. Famously his final words are reputed to be “cannot be fathomed”. I know how he felt. A memorial to him is in the Menai Bridge English Presbyterian Church alongside memorials to other members of the family… The Davies’ family was closely associated with this church, it having been built at Robert’s expense.

 

Violet became a tireless defender of her father and his reputation. She was particularly close to Winston Churchill, a leading member of her father’s (and later Loyd George’s) administration and whom she (successfully) urged her father to promote to the Cabinet in 1908. She was dismayed at his engagement that year to Clementine, whom Violet thought “as stupid as an owl”. In late August, between his engagement and his marriage, Churchill spent a holiday with the Asquith family on the Scottish coast, and later admitted that he had “behaved badly” to Violet, as they were “almost engaged”. Michael Shelden suggests that Churchill’s holiday with Violet may have been the reason for Clementine’s last-minute threat to call off their wedding.

Violet Bonham Carter, Lady Ottoline Morrell, and an unidentified man:

Lady Ottoline Morrell was associated with the Bloomsbury Set and had an interesting sexual relationship with Bertrand Russell, which I was told, involved her giving Russell good thrashings. That info came from the son of one of Gwynne the lobotomist’s Top Doc colleagues, so I presume that it came from a reliable source.

 

Lady Violet was President of the Women’s Liberal Federation, 1923–25 and 1939–45 and was the first woman to serve as President of the Liberal Party, 1945–47. In 1951 she stood for the winnable seat of Colne Valley. As an old friend, Churchill arranged for the Conservatives to refrain from nominating a candidate for the constituency, giving Violet a clear run against Labour. She was nonetheless narrowly defeated. Violet continued to be a popular and charismatic speaker for Liberal candidates, including for her son-in-law Jo Grimond, her son Mark and the then-rising star Mr Thrope. She was a frequent broadcaster on current affairs programmes on radio and TV. Violet will have known Sir Robin Day, a Liberal and broadcaster, who was a big mate of Ronnie Waterhouse and who shared a flat with Ronnie when they were young.

In the postwar years Violet was an active supporter of the UN and the cause of European Unity, advocating for Britain’s entry into the Common Market.

Violet served as a Governor of the BBC, 1941–46 and a Governor of the Old Vic, 1945–69.

On 21 December 1964, Violet was created a life peer as Baroness Asquith of Yarnbury in the County of Wiltshire, one of the first new Liberal peers in several decades. Sir Peter Morrison’s family seat was in Wiltshire, the Morrisons virtually ran the county. Violet was extremely active in the Lords, so she’ll have known Liberal Chief Whip Lord Frank Byers, Lisa Nandy’s grandfather, who intimidated Norman Scott so badly at the Liberal Party’s investigation into Mr Thrope’s behaviour that Norman walked out and made a police statement. Violet will have known Emlyn Hooson, Liberal MP for Montgomeryshire, a crooked barrister and defender of Dafydd’s gang who grew up in Denbighshire and was a friend of Ronnie Waterhouse. Hooson knew that Mr Thrope was threatening and harassing Norman, professed to be appalled but didn’t do anything to stop him or indeed ever admit to anyone outside of the Liberal Party what Mr Thrope was doing. See previous posts.

Violet died of in 1969 aged 81, and was in turd at St Andrew’s Church, Mells, near Frome, Somerset. Violet married her father’s Principal Private Secretary, Sir Maurice ‘Bongie’ Bonham Carter in 1915.

Sir Maurice Bonham-Carter was the 11th child of Sibella Charlotte (née Norman) and Henry Bonham-Carter. He was born in Kensington and educated at Winchester College and Balliol College, Oxford. Bongie was called to the Bar at Lincoln’s Inn in 1909. Bongie played for Oxford University Cricket Club and also played one first-class match for Kent County Cricket Club.

Bonham-Carter served as the Principal Private Secretary to H.H. Asquith, 1910-1916, during Asquith’s tenure as PM. He travelled around the country with Asquith at the start of WW I and accompanied the PM when he visited the frontline at Ypres in 1915. Bongie also visited Italy and, following the Easter Rising, Ireland with Asquith in 1916. When Asquith was replaced as PM by Lloyd George in 1916, Bonham-Carter moved to become Assistant Secretary of the Ministry of Reconstruction and then, in 1918, joined the  Air Ministry and Road Transport Board.

Bongie became a leading figure in the Liberal Party and was a “keen supporter of new ideas and imaginative personalities.” He was a partner in a firm of stockbrokers and also held a number of business directorships with companies including: Aero Engine Ltd, Alpha Cement Ltd, Earls Court Ltd, Blackburn and General Aircraft, Hanworth Securities Ltd, Scophony Ltd, Power Jets Ltd and was a partner with merchant bankers O.T. Falk and Partners and stockbrokers Buckmaster & Moore.

Bongie died in 1960 aged 79 and is buried in the churchyard at St Andrews Church, Mells.

Bongie and Violet had four children together:

  • Helen, who became Mrs Jasper Ridley, the mother of the economist Sir Adam Riley.
  • Laura, who became Lady Grimond, wife of the Liberal Party leader Jo Grimond.
  • Mark, who became Lord Bonham Carter was the father of Jane, who became Baroness Jane Bonham-Carter.
  • Raymond, the father of the actress Helena Bonham Carter.

Violet’s grandson Sir Adam Nicholas Ridley (born 14 May 1942) was a SPAD to the Chancellors of the Exchequer, Geoffrey Howe and Nigel Lawson, 1979-84.

Geoffrey Howe grew up in south Wales and before he entered the Commons was a barrister on the corrupt Chester and Wales Circuit, along with Emlyn Hooson et al. Howe and his wife Elspeth were very friendly with Ronnie Waterhouse and his wife from young adulthood onward. Elspeth as well as Geoffrey concealed the criminality of Dafydd et al. Howe was Chancellor, 1979-83 and was Chancellor while Sir Peter Morrison was a Lord Commissioner of the Treasury. See previous posts for info on the Howes.

Nigel Lawson was Financial Secretary to the Treasury while Howe was Chancellor and served as the MP for Blaby in Leicestershire, 1974-92. Frank Beck, Greville Janner’s social worker pal who was jailed for the abuse of kids in care in Nov 1991 was elected as a Liberal Party Councillor for Blaby in 1983 and was re-elected in 1987. The paedophile ring in Leicestershire was directly linked to Dafydd’s in north Wales and in 1987-88, Dr James Earp concealed the criminality of Dafydd and the gang, while Lawson was Chancellor. Lawson was still Chancellor when Professor Robert Bluglass concealed Dafydd and the gang’s criminality in July 1989. The Welsh Office under Secretary of State Peter Walker, who knew Dafydd and the gang as long ago as the early 1960s, orchestrated the Bluglass cover-up, by appointing Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Owen to investigate, who then appointed Bluglass to Chair a rigged inquiry. See post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’. By that time, Frank Beck and Greville Janner were under police investigation…

When she was at Oxford, Lawson’s daughter Nigella was involved with the Dangerous Sports Club. By the mid-1980s, the DSC had managed to encounter someone in Somerset who knew what was happening to me at the hands of the gang and who soon found himself in possession of a great deal of money. The DSC seemed to bump into that man in 1985-86 and they were soon all good friends and business partners. See eg. ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’.

Nigel’s son Tom is Headmaster of Eastbourne College, in Sussex, at the location of Dafydd’s partner gang. Many of those who colluded with the gang came from Brighton or Sussex, including Keith Best. Best was a crooked barrister who served as the Tory MP for Anglesey, 1979-87, until he was imprisoned for fraud. Best was the first MP whom I approached – in the summer of 1985 – re the wrongdoing of the gang. Not only did Best collude with them, but I’m sure that Dr Tony Francis got to Best before I did, as soon as Francis realised that I was going to make a complaint. See previous posts…

In 1985 Brown began a PhD at Leicester University, having been turned down by the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies at Birmingham University. Brown received no support at all at Leicester, not even a shared computer in an office. He set himself up at home and did absolutely everything himself, although he was in receipt of an ESRC studentship and Leicester received tuition fees for him. I have been told that Brown was shafted by Prof Stuart Hall and his Hall’s Radical Friends at Birmingham, assisted by Guy Cumberbatch, Brown’s former tutor at Aston, to ensure that Brown ended up alone and unsupported at Leicester, an institution run by Greville’s gang. See eg. ‘Life In Cold Blood’.

 

Nigel Lawson was born in 1932 to a wealthy Jewish family of stockbrokers, living in Hampstead. His paternal grandfather, Gustav Leibson, was from Latvia and changed his name from Leibson to Lawson in 1925, having become a British citizen in 1911.

Janner and other members of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, including Leo Abse and his friends and family, ruthlessly used the Jewish network to protect themselves. This was an incredibly successful strategy because of the great number of Jewish people in medicine and law. I have stressed many times that the Westminster Paedophile Ring received protection from across the political spectrum because politicians of all hues were involved in it. Eric Hobsbawm was a Jewish Communist who worked for the security services…

The Bonham Carters had numerous links with the Welsh Bloomsbury Set, particularly among left leaning intellectuals, academics and Top Docs. See post ‘The Vermin Club’.

Lawson was educated at Beechwood Park School, near St Albans, followed by Westminster School in London (following in his father’s footsteps) and Christ Church, Oxford, where he read PPE.

It might be difficult to believe now, but people who were at Oxford with Lawson remember an incredibly handsome man who was much swooned over, in much the same way that Gyles Brandreth said of Ann Widdecombe that she was stunningly attractive as a young woman. I only ever saw one photo, but yes, she was, Gyles was not lying, although people fell about laughing when he reminisced about partnering Doris Karloff in The Season.

Lawson carried out his National Service as a Royal Navy officer, during which time he commanded the fast-patrol boat HMS Gay Charger no less.

  • Lawson began his career as a journalist at the ‘Financial Times’ in 1956. He progressed to the positions of City Editor of ‘The Sunday Torygraph’ in 1961 and then Editor of ‘The Spectator’, 1966–1970. Samuel Brittan, brother of Leon Brittan, worked for the Financial Times. In the summer of 1985, the combined forces of Samuel Brittan and Michael Grade attempted to have my friend sacked from her job at the Edinburgh Fringe. That was the summer that Tony Francis et al declared was in earnest and my friend and her family had given me advice. My friend and the man she later married were hounded out of their media careers completely in the early 1990s. See previous posts eg. ‘The Turn Of The Screw’. Various trails lead to Michael Grade, Sir Paul Fox and others.

Peregrine Worsthorne had a very long association with the Sunday Telegraph, as a journo, Assistant Editor and Editor. Perry went to school and university with and worked with stacks of people who concealed or were part of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Worsthorne married Lucinda Lambton, daughter of Lord Lambton, the Tory Minister who resigned from Heath’s Gov’t when he was caught in bed with two call girls enjoying a joint. It was all consenting, but Lord Lambton knew much about other Ugandan discussions involving the Dafydd’s wider gang which did not involve such a degree of free will. See previous posts.

The Editor of The Daily Torygraph, 1974-86, Bill Deedes, was the Tory MP for Ashford in Kent, 1950-74, a Cabinet Minister in Macmillan’s Gov’t and a close personal friend of Denis and Margaret Thatcher. In the 1990s, the local hospital in Ashford was known to be so dangerous that local people refused to go there, they took each other miles out of their way to avoid it. The state of that hospital never received any publicity at all.

Auberon Waugh wrote for the Sunday Torygraph and The Spectator as well of course for ‘Private Eye’. Bron knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s gang, as did everyone else on The Eye. Sir Clough Williams-Ellis’s father-in-law owned and edited The Spectator in when Clough and his wife were young and there have been many more influential people involved with the magazine who were linked to Dafydd et al.

 

Adam’s grandfather, Sir Jasper Ridley, 1887–1951, was the younger son of Matthew Ridley, 1st Viscount Ridley, Home Secretary in Lord Salisbury’s Gov’t, 1895-1900. Adam’s paternal grandmother was Nathalie von Benckendorff, a daughter of Count Alexander Benckendorff, Russian Ambassador to the Court of St James’s, 1903-17.

Adam Ridley was educated at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford. He graduated in PPE in 1965. After joining the Foreign Office as a civil servant in 1965, Ridley was quickly seconded to the recently established Dept of Economic Affairs, where he remained until 1968. He was a Harkness Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, 1968–69, then returned to the Civil Service. Ridley was with the Treasury, 1970-71, then joined Heath’s new Central Policy Review Staff (or “Think Tank”) and remained there until the change of Gov’t in 1974. Ridley then served for five years as Economic Adviser to the Shadow Cabinets of Heath and Thatch. 

Ridley was a civil servant when Whitehall was colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring because so many mandarins were part of it. See eg. ‘The Naked Civil Servants…’

In 1975, when Thatch wrested the Party leadership from Heath, Adam Ridley was part of her inner circle. Although the Tories were desperate to get rid of Heath, there was not much support for Thatch. One of her key supporters was Sir Peter Morrison. Morrison was one of the first to suggest to her that Thatch ran for the Leadership and played a big role in drumming up support. Morrison’s brother Charles was a big pal of Ted Heath…  Morrison ran Thatch’s unsuccessful Leadership campaign when she was challenged in 1990…

In the summer of 1978, in the expectation of a General Election later that year, a Conservative Party election manifesto was drafted by Adam Ridley and Chris Patten and edited by Angus Maude. Lord Angus Maude was educated as Rugby and Oriel College, Oxford. He became a journalist and author, working on The Times, 1933-4 and The Daily Mail, 1934-9. Maude was the Tory MP for Ealing South, 1950-58 and then for Stratford-on-Avon, 1963-83, succeeding John Profumo in that seat…

Angus Maude was the father of the Tory MP for North Warwickshire, 1988-92 and then for Horsham in Sussex, 1997-2015. Maude was a Minister in Thatcher’s and Major’s Gov’ts, Chairman of the Tory Party, 2005-07 and a Minister in Cameron’s Gov’t. Before becoming an MP, Maude was a barrister who was a member of Inner Temple – along with Mr Thrope and the Havers’ clan who all actively covered up for the Westminster Paedophile Ring – and served as a member of Westminster City Council, 1978-84, while the Council were engaging in illegal practices which resulted in the leader, Shirley Porter, scarpering to Israel to avoid paying millions in a fines and while some of them were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts. Maude was a Westminster Councillor while St George’s Hospital was still located on the Council’s patch and some of the Top Docs at St George’s who were involved with or friends of those involved with the organised abuse facilitated by St George’s were members of the Council.

While in the Shadow Cabinet Maude was accused of hypocrisy by promoting a “family-friendly” image while being the non-executive Chairman of Jubilee Investment Trust plc, which held 21% of American pornographic actress Jill Kelly’s adult DVD business and Chairman of the Mission Marketing Group, which has advertised for WKD drinks and Playboy. Dafydd’s gang were producing porn, including kiddie porn, by coercion. Professor Oliver Brooke at St George’s Hospital was a key figure in a pan-European paedophile ring and trading in child porn.

Francis Maude’s brother, who seems to have disappeared from the wiki entries of Francis and Angus, was gay and quite well-known in the arts. He died from an HIV related condition. It was only after his death that Francis Maude made noises about regretting Section 28 and the homophobia of the Thatcher years. Francis hasn’t yet mentioned regretting ignoring Dafydd’s gang forcing kids in care to work as rent boys and remaining silent when they died from HIV related conditions. See previous posts for more info on Francis Maude and his brother.

 

In 1979, Adam Ridley became Director of the Conservative Research Dept. Matthew Parris worked in that Dept in the late 1970s and wrote about the prevailing culture of a close knit group of gay men, some of whom Parrish maintained were very predatory and would cruise for much younger men around London. Matthew also mentioned summer holidays in a villa in Italy arranged by the Dept for themselves at which rent boys were supplied for excessive living during the holiday.

Following the 1979 Tory victory Ridley was briefly at No 10, before returning to the Treasury as a SPAD to Howe and then Lawson.

In his memoir Inside the Bank of England, Christopher Dow notes that in 1979 only Ridley was brought into the Treasury as a political adviser and that he was trusted even though he was not a monetarist. Thatch made room for ‘wets’ Ian Gilmour and Peter Walker in her Cabinet because they had info about something that constituted a far greater threat to Thatch than being a Tory wet… See previous posts.

Adam Ridley played a leading part in forming the new Gov’t’s policy favouring privatisation. 

Ridley’s final post in the world of Gov’t was as adviser to the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster for part of 1985; that was Grey Gowrie until Sept 1985, then Tebbit. Both of whom knew all about Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring.

In 1985, the year that I raised my concerns re Dafydd’s gang with Keith Best and the year that Mary Wynch won her appeal to the Master of the Rolls re gaining permission to sue Dafydd and the gang, Ridley was knighted and moved into merchant banking. He was a Director of Hambros Bank and of Hambros PLC, 1985-97 and of Sunday Newspaper Publishing PLC, 1988-90, serving as Chairman in 1990. Ridley was also Chairman of the Lloyd’s of London Names Advisory Committee, 1995–96, then a member of the Council of Lloyds and of the Lloyds Regulatory Board, 1997-99. After leaving Hambros, Ridley was a non-executive Director of Leopold Joseph Holdings, 1997-2004, of Morgan Stanley Bank International, 2006-13 and of Hampden Agencies Ltd, 2007-12 and then of several Equitas insurance companies, 2009-date.

Ridley served on the National Lottery Charities Board, 1994-2000, most of that time as its Deputy Chairman and since 2003 has been a member of the Council of the British School of Athens.

In 1970 Ridley married firstly his second cousin Lady Katherine Asquith, one of the daughters of Julian Asquith, 2nd Earl of Oxford and Asquith, but this ended in divorce in 1976. In 1981, Ridley married secondly Margaret Anne Passmore, and they have three sons. He is a member of the Garrick and the Political Economy Club.

The Garrick is a favourite of lawyers, judges and luvvies. Sir William Mars-Jones, one of Dafydd’s most effective umbrellas, used the Garrick as his sitting room. Ronnie Waterhouse was also a member, as was Robin Day. The Garrick was Dafydd’s London-based fan club.

Adam Ridley was a distant cousin of Thatcher’s Cabinet Minister Nicholas Ridley.

 

Adam’s wife’s sister, Violet’s daughter, Laura Miranda Grimond (née Bonham-Carter; 13 October 1918-15 February 1994) was a Liberal politician and the wife of the Liberal Party Leader Jo Grimond. Laura was born in Marylebone, London and married Grimond in 1938.

Laura Grimond was Liberal candidate for the West Aberdeenshire division at the 1970 General Election. West Aberdeenshire was a seat the Liberals had gained from the Conservatives at the previous general election. The Liberal victor James Davidson decided not to defend his seat and instead campaigned for Laura. Her prospects of holding the seat lessened when a SNP candidate intervened in the contest and the Tory candidate won. The Tory won again in Feb 1974, although Harold Wilson won the election. Laura didn’t stand as the Liberal candidate; by 1974, Laura’s husband Jo Grimond will have known that Jeremy Thorpe was at high risk of public exposure in the not too distant future.

If Laura Grimond knew the Aberdeenshire area even fairly well, she will have known that for many years, Sir Dugald Baird had been unlawfully aborting masses of babies of low income families. In the 1970s, the sociologist who had worked for Baird when he was conducting his own brand of class genocide was working with Dafydd’s mate Professor Jerry Morris. See previous posts.

Laura continued to be active in the Liberal Party at a national level. From 1983-85 she was President of the Women’s Liberal Federation. Three times during the mid 1980s she appeared as a Party spokesperson on BBC’s Question Time. Where she will have had a good friend:

Robin Day

Laura was also politically active locally in Orkney. She was a Councillor for Firth & Harray and Chairman of Orkney Islands Council’s Housing Committee. In 1968 Laura co-founded the Orkney Heritage Society.

Laura was still alive and busy when Professor Alexis Jay caused the Orkney Satanic Panic in 1991. It was the result of Dafydd’s wider network using distraction techniques and muddying the waters to conceal their own abuse of children, in north Wales and elsewhere. See post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – The Scottish Play’. Laura did not speak out about the madness which resulted in some innocent adult being accused of ludicrous crimes and some children being separated from the families with no warning, in traumatic circumstances for as long as two years, although there was no evidence that they had been abused.

 

Joseph Grimond, Baron Grimond, (29 July 1913-24 October 1993), known as Jo Grimond, was Leader of the Liberal Party, 1956-67 and again briefly on an interim basis in 1976, after Mr Thrope was obliged to resign. Grimond was a long-term supporter of Scottish home rule. During his leadership, he successfully argued that the Liberal Party support the abolition of Britain’s nuclear arsenal.

Grimond was born in St Andrews, Fife, the town of St Andrews University, which has trained many a Top Doc, including Robert Bluglass. Elite Top Docs often have links with St Andrews even if they weren’t educated there themselves. That is because St Andrews is the home to the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, which is associated with the University and the toppest of Top Docs do like to have a connection to the R&A. Lord Robert Kilpatrick, a Top Doc who was one of the biggest umbrellas for Top Docs who facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s, had strong links to St Andrews and hung out at the R&A. See post ‘Remember Girls – Never Get Into A Car With A Stranger!’

Grimond was educated at Eton and Balliol, where read PPE. He was at school and university with, among others, cricket commentator Brian Johnston and playwright William Douglas-Home, the younger brother of PM Alec Douglas-Home and a cousin of Lord Lambton of the Call Girls and the Joints. Jo Grimond was at Balliol just a couple of years before Heath, Healey and Woy were all there together. Jo Grimond later became a barrister, being admitted to the Bar as a member of Middle Temple, of which Ronnie Waterhouse was a member.

After serving in WW II, Grimond was selected by the Liberal Party to contest Orkney and Shetland. He narrowly missed capturing the seat in 1945 but entered Parliament in 1950 for the constituency. The Liberals and their successors, the Liberal Democrats, have continuously retained the seat to the present day. It is currently held by Alistair Carmichael, who ignored a first hand account of the abuse of Scottish mental health legislation, as well as violence against patients and theft of controlled drugs by staff at Parkhead Hospital in Glasgow some four years ago. See previous posts. Grimond continued to represent the constituency until he retired from politics in 1983.

Norman Lamont was born on Shetland and his father was the islands surgeon. Lamont was part of the Cambridge Mafia, the group of Conservative students at Cambridge who all became part of Thatcher’s Gov’t. Ken Clarke was one of the members. Lamont was the Tory MP for Kingston-upon-Thames, 1972-97. Kingston-upon-Thames was virtually owned and run by Professor Hugh Bentall, who for many years worked as a cardiac surgeon at Hammersmith Hospital. Bentall was involved in research fraud, he received a Chair after one of his colleagues was found dead in mysterious circumstances and after he made a huge financial donation to Hammersmith and he bagged his secretary, who was also his mistress, a place on a degree and then a PhD in anatomy and then wangled her a job as a lecturer. Bentall was part of Dafydd’s network via Bentall’s son Richard, a clinical psychologist who trained and worked with Dafydd’s gang and married the daughter of one of its key members. See previous posts including ‘Interesting Facts’.

St George’s Hospital Medical School merged with Kingston-upon-Thames University in the wake of the cover-up re Professor Oliver Brooke and the gang, but I don’t know why, because the snobbish elites at St George’s certainly wouldn’t have wanted to get into bed with an ex-poly. Ken Clarke knows what was behind it all and it was something to do with Dafydd’s gang, me and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Do tell Ken! Norman Lamont knows as well.

 

The Party that Grimond inherited commanded barely 2.5% of the vote in 1955. By the time that he left the leadership in 1967, the Liberals had once again become a notable political force. It was during his tenure that the first post-war Liberal revival took place: under Grimond’s leadership, the Liberals doubled their seat tally and won historic by-elections at Torrington in 1958 (won by Mark Bonham Carter, the first by-election gain by the Liberal Party for 29 years), Orpington in 1962 (Eric Lubbock aka Lord Avebury, who knew all about Jeremy Thrope and the rest of the ring, as detailed in previous posts) and Roxburgh, Selkirk and Peebles in 1965 (David Steel, who actively concealed organised abuse, including that of Dafydd’s gang and Cyril Smith, as detailed in previous posts, including ‘Man Of Steel’).

The Liberal Party made idiots of themselves by protecting Mr Thrope in the face of his dreadful conduct because he was their Great Hope. The Liberals were always getting excited when I was growing up, because there was so much disillusionment with the Tories and the Labour Party that the Liberals were usually dreaming of sweeping to power at any moment. The West Country was a Liberal stronghold, until I went to university I was surrounded by the Sir Buftons of the Tory Party and the Liberals. Labour voters were thin on the ground. The family of John Pardoe, the Liberal MP for North Cornwall, 1966-79, – who supported Mr Thrope until Mr Thrope was such a liability that he was unsupportable – were solicitors in Bridgwater and Taunton and John Pardoe’s brother Robin is a farmer in the village in which I lived during my teens.

John Pardoe’s niece Rachel went to school at Dartington Hall, where Bertrand Russell sent his children, as did her brother Simon, Rachel then studied sociology at Sussex and Simon went to Aberystwyth. Simon became a teacher in London and held a senior role in ILEA while ILEA was on board with Dafydd’s gang and were sending kids to children’s homes in north Wales. See previous posts.

At about the time that Dafydd’s gang came after me, there was a substantial fire at Robin Pardoe’s farm. He was a chicken farmer and later switched to pheasants, but the birds were housed in big wooden barns. One of the barns went up and hundreds of birds were roasted alive. No-one could work out how the shed had caught fire, there weren’t any fire risks there and it was attributed to arson. I was later told that somebody had made it known that one of my relatives who used to work for Mr Pardoe had done it. I understand that the fur flew because she definitely had not. Because she hadn’t got on with her workmates I just presumed that someone had attributed even worse behaviour to her, but I’ve received info that the fire and the direction in which the finger of suspicion was pointed was something to do with Dafydd and the gang.

Before I left north Wales I mentioned that I and other people who had crossed the path of the gang were receiving bills, reminders and even County Court Judgements with regard to bills that we had paid. Gwynedd County Council excelled at this, we were all repeatedly sent Council Tax bills that had already been paid, taken to Court for non-payment without our knowledge and then fined and then sent further threats for non-payments of fines. Imagine my surprise when one of the final demands to pay a bill in north Wales that I had paid anyway came from Pardoes, the solicitors firm in Taunton, which was the family business of John Pardoe. I never got to the bottom of it. I’m fairly sure that there was a branch of Pardoes in Bridgwater as well.

Perhaps one or both of these people can enlighten me re that demand:

Jo Grimond appealed to all wings of the Party and was especially popular with the Young Liberals. In 1967, having led the party through three General Elections, Grimond made way for Mr Thrope.

Among other posts, Grimond was a barrister and publisher in the 1930s, an Army Major during WW II, Secretary of the National Trust for Scotland, 1947-49 and held the Rectorships of the University of Edinburgh and the University of Aberdeen and the Chancellorship of the University of Kent, 1970-90.

Upon leaving the Commons Grimond was created a life peer as Baron Grimond on 12 October 1983. He remained devoted to his former parliamentary constituency and was buried on Orkney.

I acquired a biography of Grimond a few weeks ago but I haven’t had time to read it yet. I expect to find out much more about him soon…

Jo Grimond married Laura Bonham Carter in 1938. They had four children:

  • (Joseph) Andrew Grimond (26 March 1939-23 March 1966), a sub-editor of ‘The Scotsman’ who lived in Edinburgh until his suicide at the age of 26. I have not been able to find out anything about Andrew.
  • Grizelda “Gelda” (Jane) Grimond (1942-2017), who had a daughter Katherine (b. 1973) by the film and stage director Tony Richardson. Tony Richardson was married to Vanessa Redgrave, 1962-67. Vanessa was part of the activism that some of the Croesor crowd were involved with and was accused of putting up the money to help Pat Pottle and Michael Randle spring George Blake from prison (see previous posts); Richardson’s wiki entry states that he funded the escape. Richardson was bisexual but never acknowledged it publicly until after he contracted HIV. He died of complications from AIDS in 1991. Richardson came from Shipley in Yorkshire which was Jimmy Savile’s turf and Lord Asa Briggs’ early years turf as well. Richardson and Redgrave’s daughter died in a ski-ing accident in 2009.
  • John (Jasper) Grimond (born October 1946), a former foreign editor of ‘The Economist’ as Johnny Grimond, now writer at large for the publication, who in 1973 married Kate Fleming (b. 1946), elder daughter of the writer Peter Fleming and actress Celia Johnson and who has three children with her.
  • (Thomas) Magnus Grimond (born 13 June 1959), journalist and financial correspondent, married to travel author Laura Grimond (née Raison) and who has four children.

 

Violet Bonham Carter’s son Mark Raymond Bonham Carter, Baron Bonham-Carter, (11 February 1922-4 September 1994), was educated at Winchester College and Balliol, where he read PPE. His studies were interrupted by WW II and Mark was commissioned in the Grenadier Guards in November 1941. Bonham-Carter concluded the war by standing as the unsuccessful Liberal candidate for Barnstaple in the 1945 General Election, before returning to finish the last year of his course at Oxford. He then spent a year at the University of Chicago before going into publishing, working for the Collins publishing firm but left as his directors did not agree with his political activities.

In 1955, Mark married Leslie, Lady St Just, the former wife of Peter George Grenfell, 2nd Baron St Just (1922–1984) and the younger daughter of American magazine publisher Conde Nast. Mark Bonham-Carter had three daughters with Leslie: Jane, who became Baroness Bonham-Carter of Yarnbury, Virginia and Eliza Bonham Carter. He also had a stepdaughter from his wife’s former marriage.

Bonham Carter stood as the successful Liberal candidate for Torrington in the 1958 by-election, overturning a 9,000 majority, giving the Liberals their first by-election gain since 1929. Bonham-Carter’s margin of victory was just 219 votes. It was a major boost to the Liberals and the first in a string of by-election victories that would make up the postwar Liberal Revival. Although Grimond was personally hopeful that Mark Bonham-Carter would be his designated successor, at the 1959 General Election Mark lost the seat to the Conservatives. He continued to be a close adviser to Grimond throughout the latter’s leadership but would never again be an MP.

Bonham continued to work as a prominent member of the Collins firm, becoming close friends with the Westminster Swinger Woy Jenkins, reportedly Mark’s wife’s lover and serving as his literary agent. Mark became the first Chairman of the Race Relations Board, 1966-71 and its successor, the Community Relations Commission, 1971-77. Mark was one of the Directors of the Royal Opera House, 1958–82, a Governor of the Royal Ballet, 1960–94 (Chairman of the Board after 1985) and Vice-Chairman of the BBC, 1975–80, being vetoed as Chairman by Thatch.

The Chairman of the BBC, 1973-80, was Sir Michael Swann. Swann was appointed by Ted Heath who admired Swann’s ‘strong leadership’ during student protests at Edinburgh University, which were led by one Gordon Brown. Swann was well networked with the Westminster Paedophile Ring, enjoyed a number of university management positions and had links to the Royal Family. Swann was a cell biologist who early in his career had been a zoologist at Edinburgh and then Cambridge. Swann knew some of the biologists at UCNW who were part of Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts.

The DG of the BBC when Bonham Carter was appointed was Sir Charles Curran, who was succeeded as DG by Sir Ian Trethowan in 1977. Curran was perceived to be a puppet of Lord Charles Hill, the BBC Chairman who, as a Secretary of the BMA, was one of those who squeezed Nye Bevan’s knackers so hard during the negotiations to establish the NHS that Bevan made a pay and conditions agreement with the BMA that left the NHS permanently screwed. In return, Hill has been hailed as one of the Selfless Heroes Who Established The NHS. Charles Hill disliked the BBC as much as the BMA disliked the idea of the NHS, which was allegedly why Harold Wilson appointed him as Chairman, to reign in the BBC. No-one has observed in print that Charles Hill and his mates were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring and there was an elite paedophile ring operating at the BBC which was linked with the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts for info on Hill, Curran and Trethowan.

 

On 21 July 1986 Mark was created a life peer as Baron Bonham-Carterof Yarnbury in the County of Wiltshire. He became Foreign Affairs spokesman for the Liberal Democrats. Bonham Carter’s last campaign focused on granting British citizenship to ethnic minorities in Hong Kong, a measure that was only passed after his death.

Mark Bonham Carter died from a heart attack in Italy on 4 September 1994. Three months after the Headmaster of Bryn Estyn Matt Arnold died of an ‘unspecified blood disease’ and two months after Peter Howarth, his long term colleague and friend, was jailed for abusing boys in care in north Wales. Greville’s mate Frank Beck had died from a heart attack in prison in May 1994. Lord Robert Hunter pegged out from a heart attack in that Birmingham garden in March 1994.

The Indie published an obituary for Mark Bonham Carter, written by Frank Field, who knows a great deal about Dafydd and the gang’s activities (see previous posts.)

TO RECALL the public positions which Mark Bonham Carter filled with distinction is to tell only part of his contribution to public and political life in Britain. He was above everything a political animal, conscious of being the grandson of HH Asquith, Britain’s last Liberal prime minister, and the son of Lady Violet Bonham Carter, the person who, above all, kept alive the spirit of the old Liberal Party during the earlier post-war years. His death on Sunday while holidaying in Italy denies the public stage a gifted player and robs his friends, particularly the younger ones, of a stimulating, ever-encouraging and loyal colleague.

There was never any doubt about Bonham Carter’s liking for younger people. The endless guest-lists to his house tell their own record. But for younger people, particularly politicians, he was a laid-back figure whose war record was one to be recalled with admiration. Events here held the essential paradox which characterised Bonham Carter’s entire life.

Mark Bonham Carter, like his father and grandfather before him, went to Balliol College, Oxford, and then, when the Second World War came, entered the Grenadier Guards. He was taken prisoner and moved to north Italy, but come the fall of the Mussolini regime the opportunity of escape arose for all inmates. Only three disobeyed what was said to be the orders to the British prisoners to stay put. Bonham Carter was one of these. All the remaining prisoners were shot when the advancing German troops reached the camp. Breaking the rules where necessary was only one of Bonham Carter’s unexpected characteristics. Adding to the risks by turning conventional wisdom on its head was another. Instead of heading for the Swiss border Bonham Carter moved south to the British lines and freedom.

This journey was made largely at night and depended usually on the safety of one priest’s house leading to the next. No one who pushed Bonham Carter to recall these events was surprised at his angry outburst when Margaret Thatcher claimed that there was no such thing as society. It was that very web of history, friendship and shared values which provided thesafe route for the young escaping British soldier.

The years out of Parliament were packed with activity. More than two decades were given over to working as a director of the publishing house William Collins. Many an author was the beneficiary of Bonham Carter’s ability for short, massively concentrated bouts of work-reading a manuscript, and trenchantly and constructively commenting upon it. It wasduring these years that Bonham Carter’s range of cultural interests was both developed and enhanced.

His constructive input to public affairs was seen most clearly when Roy Jenkins, the then Home Secretary, appointed him the first chairman of the Race Relations Board. It was due in part to Bonham Carter’s exercise of the opportunities of this office that the Government was led to legislate a stronger legal framework for race relations in Britain. In 1971 he became chairman of the body amalgamating the Race Relations Board and the Community Relations Commission, and what progress has been made in this field is due largely to his efforts, imagination and calm in those early days.

His list of public offices included the vice-chairmanship of the BBC and, from 1958 to 1982, a directorship of the Royal Opera House. Yet the length of the list of his public posts begins to obscure the full impact of Mark Bonham Carter’s personality on public life and conduct. The paradox of being establishment-born but risk-taker extraordinary has been remarked. But Bonham Carter’s true greatness derived from his ability to cope with an array of talents which fitted him for the highest office but which the turn of events denied him.

The political battlefield is littered with politicians angry at the cards fate has dealt them. In many instances bystanders feel that the cards have been not that unduly dealt. Not so with Mark Bonham Carter. Here was someone not merely born to the purple, but showing so many of the qualities which differentiated him from others in public life. His speeches in the Lords on defence and foreign affairs, where he was a Liberal Democrat spokesman, not only have a feel for the great movements in history, but give each individual event its place on the world stage. His lasting contribution to hisparty, probably, was that Liberalism was about an attitude and an approach to politics, not of drawing up shopping lists of policies. To a party wedded to such nostrums as free trade this was no mean feat.
 

It is with the clash of abilities and the limited range of opportunities offered that Bonham Carter’s character showed its truly outstanding quality. It is not merely that no one could ever have felt the deep frustration that musthave burned inside him at being denied the opportunities of exercising fully his political abilities. Rather it is that he took pleasure not merely in the young, but in encouraging them to try to achieve what he was denied. Never a hint here of the failure to gain a rightful reward. Nor ever a sign of a truly vibrant character turning sour upon itself.

He was, fortunately, given impressive compensations, a wife of equal courage, a stepdaughter and three daughters of his own. His links with young people naturally overlapped with his devotion to his daughters. They were an integral part of his social life. Many a party quest, and particularly at Bussento, where he died, would be involved in the most animated of conversations until dawn was approaching. And then, as guests went to bed, it would be Mark who insisted on beginning a dance. Never can a private face have been so different from what some saw as an acerbic public countenance.

Recently Mark Bonham Carter became a grandfather. The pride of knowing that the great chain of being’s next link had been safely forged was a compensation which turned out to be for him of incalculable value.

A glowing tribute there to the man closely linked in numerous ways to the Westminster Paedophile Ring from Frank. I note that Frank Field remembered that Mark enjoyed the company of young people. Richard Crossman mentions Mark in his ‘Diaries’, on May 29 1968, when Crossman goes out to Brook’s with Woy for gulls’ eggs and claret, where Crossman and Woy gossip about Jim Callaghan and Babs Castle and agree that Babs’s price and incomes policy can’t be sustained. Crossman observes that while he and Woy were dining, ‘at the bar down below were Mark Bonham Carter and other willowy young men’…  A footnote in Crossman’s ‘Diaries’ states that in 1976, Bonham Carter became Chairman of the Outer Circle Policy Unit.

David Lloyd George

Lloyd George was famously known as the old goat because of his enthusiasm for discussing Uganda. Fans of Lloyd George were sensitive to his reputation in this sphere and there is an account of one lady saying that she didn’t want to hear anything about Lloyd George because Mr Asquith was much worse. I can only assume that Asquith was positively Dafydd. Not that Dafydd was PM, he just thought that his status as Europe’s Leading Forensic Psychiatrist was as great.

  • Ma’am Darling, having a rather more enjoyable time on Mustique with Roddy from south Wales:

Ma’am Darling acquired her recreational chemicals from Top Docs Anne and Peter Dally, who were protected and assisted by the corrupt Home Office Drugs Branch mandarin Bing Spear, who also protected and assisted Dafydd.

Mr Thrope with his second wife, who was previously married to Lilibet’s cousin. Mr Thrope found happiness with a Royal relative after the unfortunate death of his first wife Caroline Allpass in a road accident. Mr Thrope was devastated by the death of the lovely Caroline, although Caroline’s death detracted from some difficulties in the Liberal Party and Mr Thrope benefited political from the outpouring of sympathy after he was bereaved. After a decent interval of mourning and the erection of a phallic symbol in memory of Caroline, Mr Thrope fell in love with Royalty yet again.

In 2008 Jane Bonham Carter was reported to be partner of Baron Tim Razzall. Bonham Carter declared the relationship in the House of Lords Register of Interests.

Jane Bonham-Carter was educated at St Paul’s School, Hammersmith and at UCL. Bonham-Carter worked in TV before entering the family business as a Peer, spending time at both the BBC and Channel 4, producing programmes such as PanoramaNewsnight and A Week In Politics. Previous posts have mentioned the many media supporters and associates of Dafydd and the network, including Huw Wheldon, Robin Day, Kirsty Wark…

 

In 1996, the year that William Hague announced that Ronnie Waterhouse, a member of a well-known Liberal family, would be Chairing a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, Jane became the Liberal Democrats’ Director of Communications, a role she held through the 1997 election before returning to a career in TV as an independent producer at Brook Lapping Productions, where she produced a number of documentaries for Channel 4, the BBC and ITV, including the award-winning series Maggie: the First Lady.

Jimmy Savile visited Bryn Estyn, where one boy alleged that Savile watched him gang raped. Savile also dropped into Ashworth Hospital when he felt like it, an institution run by Dafydd’s gang.
Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

On 23 June 2004 Jane was created Baroness Bonham-Carter of Yarnburyof Yarnbury in the County of Wiltshire and was appointed Lib Dem Spokesperson for Broadcasting and the Arts.

In 2004, Dafydd’s mate the corrupt judge Huw Daniel expected to be able to imprison me after the gang tried to fit me up for threats to kill. Huw became very angry when the case collapsed on the first day of the trial, which was just before Jane became Baroness Jane.

Baroness Jane has been a member of various House of Lords Select Committees, including the BBC Charter Review set up in 2005 and the Parliamentary Communications Committee. That Charter Review was in the wake of the scrap over Hutton etc. Merfyn was one of the BBC Guv’nors at the time and seems to have politely said nothing while Michael Grade, Ruth Deech et al pompoused, insulted him and others and made idiots of themselves. So someone decided that Jane of the Richard Crossman Ring would make a helpful addition to the Select Committee dealing with the matter. The Secretary of State dealing with the Charter Review was of course ex social worker Baroness Tessa Jowell of the Camden Swingers and Traffickers. See previous posts. The Tessa who was the sister-in-law of Dame Barbara Mills, the DPP who colluded with a mountain of institutional corruption, including that relating to the criminality of Dafydd et al in north Wales. See previous posts eg. ‘A Future Leader of the Labour Party?’, ‘The Mrs Mills Experience’ and ‘Theatre of the Absurd’.

After the formation of the Con-Dem coalition government in 2010, Jane was elected Deputy Convenor of Liberal Democrat Peers and was appointed Co-Chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party Committee for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport, which includes the role of Lib Dem spokesperson on DCMS matters in the House of Lords.

Jane Bonham-Carter has served on the Advisory Committee of the think tank Centre Forum since 2005, and RAPT (Rehabilitation for Addicted Prisoners Trust) since 1999.

Celebrity arrests could soar after police discover Jimmy ...

 

Jane was a Board Member of the National Campaign for the Arts, 2010-12. She is a Vice-President of the Debating Group. On 19 April 2015 it was announced that Bonham-Carter would be a patron of the Studio Theatre, Ashley Road, Salisbury. Salisbury’s most famous former resident is probably Ted Heath, a sour old bugger who lived alone in an enormous house. I marvelled when Ted Heath managed to leave most of his money in his will to himself. I would never have thought that it was possible but Heath did it by leaving a will stating that his fortune had to be used for the purposes of transforming his house into a museum of himself.

Jane Bonham Carter attracted criticism in 2008 when it was revealed that she and her partner, Tim Razzall, had both claimed Lords expenses for a flat that they shared, although it was not claimed that a breach of the rules had occurred. The Lords expenses system was later changed to give peers a flat rate irrespective of their residence.

Edward Timothy Razzall, Baron Razzall (born 12 June 1943) was the son of Humphrey Razzall, a Liberal Party member who stood as Liberal Parliamentary Candidate for Scarborough and Whitby in the 1945 General Election. Scarborough and Whitby was on Savile’s turf and Savile was so ancient that it was even his turf back in 1945.

Razzall attended St Paul’s School, London before going up to Worcester College, Oxford. Lord Asa Briggs was Fellow of Worcester College, Oxford, 1945-55 and Provost of Worcester College, 1976-91.

Razzall qualified as a solicitor in 1969 and worked for Frere Cholmeley (later Frere Cholmeley Bischoff), becoming a partner in 1973 and Chief Executive in 1990, before leaving in 1995 to set up his own corporate finance business (Argonaut Associates).

In 1974 Tim Razzall was elected a Councillor for the London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames, which he represented for 24 years. During that time Tim served as Chair of Richmond Council’s Policy and Resources Committee for 13 years and as Deputy Leader, 1983–96. He was succeeded in both roles by Serge Lourie.

Richmond-upon-Thames Borough Council facilitated a paedophile ring targeting kids in the care of their Social Services. The notorious Elm Guest House which doubled up as a gay brothel staffed by kids in care was close to Richmond-on-Thames. People alleged to have visited Elm Guest house included Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith. Louis Minster, the Director of Social Services for Richmond, was known to be an active paedophile. On one occasion when the police arranged a raid on a property in which kids were thought to be abused, Minster being one of the suspects, they had to notify Richmond Social Services to arrange care for any children that might be found during the raid. The Social Services Shared the information with Minster, who changed his plans. The police raid found no evidence of abuse.

Carole Kasir, co-owner of the Elm Guest House was found dead in 1990. Top Docs attributed her death to suicide. Her friends have always maintained that she was killed. Carol was found dead the summer that the gang made attempts to have me imprisoned on the basis of their perjury in Chester and Cardiff High Courts. See post ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

Alice Levinson, one of the Top Doctors at Springfield Hospital/St George’s nwho was colluding with Dafydd and the gang in 1990-91 later had a private psychotherapy practice at Richmond-upon-Thames.

(Alexander) Serge Lourie (born 22 February 1946) is the former Leader of the Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames, where he was a Councillor, 1982-2010. Serge was Chairman of the UK Housing Trust, Kingston Hospital NHS Trust and Sanctuary Housing Association. He has also been the General Secretary of Help the Aged, an organisation to which many members of Dafydd’s gang have been attracted and a board member of the London Pensions Fund Authority and the Notting Hill Housing Trust.

Lourie was born on 22 February 1946. His mother was Anna Rootchenko. He was educated at St Paul’s School, London and Worcester College, Oxford, 1965-68, graduating in PPE. Lourie qualified as a chartered accountant with Cooper Brothers in 1971 (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) and was a Labour Party member of Westminster City Council, 1971–74 and the Greater London Council, 1973–77, where he was Chair of scrutiny and Vice-Chair of finance.

Margaret Little Nell Hodge worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers when the paedophile ring in the Islington children’s homes which had thrived under Little Nell’s leadership of the Council became too embarrassing even for Little Nell to brazen out. Keith Vaz worked as a solicitor for both Richmond-upon-Thames and Islington Councils, before he set up shop in a Leicester City Council-funded law centre in Leicester. In 1987, after Brown had moved to Leicester to begin his PhD, Keith was elected the MP for the constituency in which Brown lived and by then I as well.

Serge was elected as an SDP-Lib Alliance Councillor for Kew on Richmond-upon-Thames Borough Council in 1982, becoming a Lib Dem following the merger of the SDP and the Liberal Party in 1988. In 1990, he was re-elected as a Liberal Democrat. Lourie spent 14 years as Leader, and also served as Deputy Leader and Leader of the Opposition. He lost his seat in 2010.

In 1989 Serge was awarded a fellowship by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust. From 1990 and 1994 he Chaired the London Boroughs Grants Committee, awarding grants of around £29m to the voluntary sector in London. Serge was a Board member of the London Tourist Board where he deputised for the Chairman, Sir John Egan. He Chaired the Independent Panel on members’ remuneration for the Association of Police Authorities and was a member of the Metropolitan Police Committee.

There is certainly green paint on the Renault in Richmond.

Serge is a board member of Richmond Charities and of Kew Community Trust as well as Chairing Poems in the Waiting Room, a British charity providing poetry cards to Top Docs’ waiting rooms in England and Wales.

Surely this must have been something to do with Poet, Top Doc and facilitator of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, Dannie Abse? See post ‘O Jones, O Jones’.

‘Barley’ (in memory of Dannie Abse) by Gillian Clarke ...

Serge is a Patron of Cultural Co-operation, a charity that runs world music festivals. In 2015, Serge was appointed Chairman of the Charity Appeal Committee of Kingston Hospital to raise £750,000 to improve the treatment of patients with dementia.

Serge lives in Kew, London and is married with two children.

“Je t’aime… moi non plus”
Je t'aime moi non plus by Jane Birkin et Serge Gainsbourg French vinyl Fontana release.jpg
Je t’aime moi non plus
Je t'aime... moi non plus poster.jpg

Plot: The movie is a classic love triangle drama. Frail and love-starved girl Johnny (Jane Birkin) works in a truckstop café in the middle of nowhere. One day enter two gay truckers, manly and worldwise Krassky (Joe Dallesandro) and his lover Padovan (Hugues Quester), young and handsome, but immature and rather a handful. Krassky, tired of taking care of Padovan who keeps getting into trouble, discovers in himself an attraction for this boyish girl, and she falls head over heels for him. They start a relationship; and even if at first Krassky’s body hesitates before the meager feminine graces of curveless Johnny, he ends up being charmed by her naïve and unconditional love. She is ready to accept anything out of love for him, including anal sex, though quite inexperienced at this, so that her screams of pain cause them to be thrown out of several motels… In the end,the back of Krassky’s dirty garbage truck will be the theatre of their union.

‘Don’t Ewe Think I Was Handsome?’

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

Furiously jealous Padovan however, to win Krassky back, will shrink at nothing, including murder… and at the sight of this passionate jealousy, Krassky returns to his first love and leaves with him, abandoning little skinny Johnny in her café, brokenhearted and lonely again.

THE TRIALS OF GORDON ANGLESEA | REBECCA

 

In 1986 Tim Razzall he became joint-Treasurer of the Liberal Party and then Treasurer of the newly merged Liberal Democrats in 1988. He was appointed a CBE  in the  1993 New Year Honours and created a life peer on 22 October 1997, 10 months after the Waterhouse Inquiry opened.

In July 2002, Tim was the best man at the marriage of Charles Kennedy, the then Lib Dem Leader, to Sarah Gurling. The Charles who, along with his colleagues, concealed much crap and who developed one hell of a drink problem which was also concealed by his colleagues. See previous posts. Had they been more honest they would have had a chance of saving Charlie Kennedy’s life but why anybody would have considered that when there were so many troughs to dine at and the vain hope that they might find themselves in Gov’t?

From 2000 to 2006, Tim was Chair of the Liberal Democrats’ Campaigns and Communications Committee. Along with Lord Rennard of Sexual Harassment (see post ‘He Knows Where The Bodies Are Buried’), Tim was responsible for running the Liberal Democrats’ election campaigns. Tim stepped down from this post in May 2006. Tim is a former Lords Liberal Democrat Spokesman on Trade and Industry and Treasurer of the All Party Parliamentary Intellectual Property Group. He now serves on various parliamentary committees.

Razzall married first in 1965 (divorced 1974) Elizabeth and they had a daughter, Katie Razzall, the BBC Newsnight reporter and a son James Razzall. The name Kirsty Wark springs to mind once more.

Through his second marriage in 1982 (dissolved 2003) to Deirdre Martineaunee Taylor-Smith, Tim became step-father to her Deirdre’s sons and two daughters. Then in 2008 Tim became the partner of Baroness Jane.

Violet Bonham Carter’s son Raymond (19 June 1929 – 17 January 2004) was educated at St Ronan’s School, Hawkhurst, Winchester College and Magdalen College, Oxford, graduating in 1952. He then went to Harvard. Raymond held senior posts with the Bank of England, 1958–1963, the IMF, 1961–1963, Warburgs, 1963–1977 and with the Civil Service in the Dept of Industry, 1977–1979.

In 1958, he married Elena Propper de Callejón, daughter of Spanish diplomat Eduardo Propper de Callejon (1895–1972) and his Austrian-French Jewish wife, Helene Fould-Springer. Together, they had three children:

  • Edward Bonham Carter (born 24 May 1960), Vice Chairman of fund management group Jupiter Fund Management.
  • Helena Bonham Carter (born 26 May 1966), the actress who is the constant focus of pointless media articles obsessing about her clothes.
  • Thomas Bonham Carter, who manages a corporate governance agency.

In 1979, the Year of Mr Thrope at the Old Bailey and Mary Wynch’s Unlawful Imprisonment, Raymond  was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Ah the doctors they were wonderful and the brain tumour was removed but whoops Raymond was left quadriplegic and blind. Raymond lived until Jan 2004. The Torygraph provided an obituary:

Raymond Bonham Carter, who has died aged 74, was the last surviving child of the indomitable politician and orator Lady Violet Bonham Carter, and the grandson of H H Asquith, the Liberal Prime Minister; he was also the father of the actress Helena Bonham Carter.

A successful banker who became a director of S G Warburg & Co, Bonham Carter’s career was cut short when, in 1979, an operation to remove a benign brain tumour left him quadriplegic and partially blind for theremaining 25 years of his life.

Raymond Henry Bonham Carter was born on June 19 1929, the youngest of two sons and two daughters of Sir Maurice Bonham Carter (Asquith’s private secretary, known to everyone as “Bongie”) and Violet (Asquith’s daughter), who was later created a life peeress as Baroness Asquith of Yarnbury.

Their illustrious political and intellectual heritage was not lost on any of the Bonham Carter children. Cressida, the eldest, became an archaeologist. Mark won Torrington for the Liberals in 1958 and was Chairman of the Race Relations Board. Laura Bonham Carter continued the Liberal tradition bymarrying Jo Grimond, later Lord Grimond, the leader of the Liberal Party from 1956 to 1967.

For Raymond, however, as the youngest child, the lure of politics (and the pressure from his intensely political mother) was not so strong, although he was justly proud of his Asquith ancestry. He was educated at St Ronan’s Preparatory School and then Winchester, after which he did his National Service in the Irish Guards. At Magdalen College, Oxford, he read PPE and was a keen football player. He was also taught by Harry Weldon, who kept a cask of beer outside his study door and would ask undergraduates to bring him a half – and help themselves while they were at it.

Having graduated in 1952, Bonham Carter won a place at Harvard Business School. The rigours of Harvard, as he later recalled in an article for The Daily Telegraph, came as a shock “after the leisurely pace of Oxford”, but his schooling in international business would stand him in good stead. After graduating in 1954, he returned to England to join J Henry Schroder & Co, where he remained until 1958.

That same year Bonham Carter married Elena Propper de Callejon, the daughter of Don Eduardo Propper de Callejon, the then Spanish Ambassador to Norway, and Helene “Bubbles” Propper de Callejon, the artist, writer and cosmopolitan hostess.

Between 1958 and 1963 Bonham Carter was acting adviser to the Bank of England; and from 1961 to 1963 he was an alternate executive director for the UK at the International Monetary Fund and a member of the UK Treasury and Supply Delegation in Washington.

In 1964 he returned to London to join Warburgs. There his international experience and interest in the human, as well as the financial, side of the business generated both respect and affection. He always combinedmeticulous professionalism with courtesy, charm and humour, particularly when giving clients advice which they may not always have welcomed.

After a lengthy period as head of the banking division at Warburgs, in 1977 Bonham Carter was seconded to the civil service, where he was the Director of the Industrial Development Unit at the Department of Industry.

So Bonham Carter was seconded to the Civil Service one year after Harold Wilson’s resignation, as the Jeremy Thrope scandal gathered momentum, under Edmund Dell as Secretary of State.

Edmund Dell was born in London, the son of a Jewish manufacturer. He served in the Royal Artillery in WW II. Dell was educated at Dame Alice Owen’s School and Queen’s College, Oxford, which is where Ioan Bowen Rees studied; Dell was five years older than Ioan. At Oxford, Dell was a member of the Community Party. He studied history, as did Ioan.

Dell began work for ICI in Manchester as an overseas sales manager, specialising in Latin American trade and eventually rose to Vice President of the Plastics Division. He began to find himself in the difficult position of balancing a career in business with Labour politics. Dell was elected to Manchester City Council in 1953 and served for seven years, while the Councillors colluded with the expanding organised abuse ring being run by Dafydd’s mates in Greater Manchester and Salford.

Dell was elected to Parliament as the Labour MP for Birkenhead and retained the seat until 1979, when Frank Field succeeded him in the territory which Dafydd’s partners in crime in Liverpool had long since colonised. Dell served as PPS to Jack Diamond, then as a Minister  under Wedgie Benn at the Ministry of Technology in 1966 and then in the Dept of Economic Affairs under Peter Shore in 1967. All three of these Ministers knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Peter Shore’s wife, Baroness Liz Shore, was a Lady Doctor who held a very senior role as a medical officer in the Civil Service who was helping run the ring. See previous posts. In 1969 Edmund Dell was moved to the Dept of Employment under dear old Babs Castle, which says it all.

Dell became Paymaster General in 1974, then Secretary of State for Trade and President of the Board of Trade, 1976-78, under Jim Callaghan. Dell resigned his seat in 1979, ‘increasingly disillusioned by Labour’s drift to the Left as he moved sharply to the Right’. Readers can probably guess what happened after this display of Principles.

Yes, Dell joined the new SDP  and, after its merger with the Liberals in 1988, he was a member of the Lib Dems. He served as a Trustee of both the SDP and the Liberal Democrats and served as one of SDP’s three representatives during emergency negotiations with the Liberals in January 1988 when it appeared the two parties’ merger might fall through after the failed launch by David Steel and Bob MacLennan of the joint manifesto, Voices and Choices.

After Parliament, Dell was Chairman of Guinness Peat, founding Chairman of Channel 4 and as a Director of Shell Trading. In 1991-2 he was President of the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Dell was married to Susan Gottschalk for 36 years. Dell pegged out in Nov 1999, three months before the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

 

But in 1979, just before his [Raymond Bonham Carter’s] return to Warburgs, he was diagnosed with a benign brain tumour and underwent a routine operation, from which he was expected to make a full recovery. After complications during surgery, however, he was left severely paralysed.

Bonham Carter bore his disability with remarkable stoicism and courage and, despite an initial prognosis that he would not survive, managed to regain some movement in his arms. Although he had a full-time nurse, his family also helped to care for him, and he had a profound influence on his children, to whom his daily struggles were an inspiration. Helena Bonham Carter continued to live with her parents for many years after she had become a successful actress. Her mother combined looking after herhusband with her work as a psychotherapist.

Bonham Carter’s condition affected neither his intellect nor his power of speech and, having inherited his mother’s precise and inquiring mind, his opinions were always expressed with force and clarity. Before his sight failed completely, he read voraciously, particularly newspapers, and after the onset of blindness he would sit up late into the night listening to the radio.

Latterly he donated numerous family papers to the Bodleian Library in Oxford, and oversaw the publication of a three-volume edition of his mother’s diaries and letters. In the second volume, Champion Redoubtable, Lady Violet wrote of her youngest child: “His temperament is very like Father’s. I have never – except in him – known such stability of keel – such a marvellous ‘temper’ – both intellectual & otherwise – such philosophy and complete lack of introspection, self-pity & irritability.”

Raymond Bonham Carter, who died on January 17, took much delight in his faithful dog, Kes, and his seven grandchildren, the youngest of whom, Billy Raymond, Helena Bonham Carter’s son by the film director Tim Burton, was born three months ago.

His wife, daughter and two sons, Edward and Thomas, survive him.

Raymonds father-in-law Eduardo Propper de Callejón is mainly remembered for having facilitated the escape of thousands of Jews from occupied France during WW II.

Propper de Callejón was First Secretary of the Spanish Embassy in Paris, when France surrendered to Nazi Germany on 20 June 1940. In July 1940, he issued from the Spanish Consulate in Bordeaux, in co-operation with the Portuguese Consul Aristides de Sousa Mendes, more than 30,000 transit visas to Jews, so that they could cross Spain to reach Portugal. When Spain’s Foreign Minister learnt that Propper de Callejón was issuing visas without prior authorization, he had him transferred to the Consulate of Larache in Moracco. Afterwards, Eduardo was posted to Rabat, Zurich, Washington DC, Ottawa and Oslo.

Propper de Callejón’s father was a Bohemian Jew and his mother was a Spanish Catholic. His wife, Hélène Fould-Springer, was a socialite and painter. She was from a notable Jewish French-Austrian banking family and converted to Catholicism after WW II. Her sister was Paris art patron and philanthropist Liliane de Rothschild (1916–2003) of those Rothschilds.

Eduardo didn’t gain public recognition for his heroic acts until after his death in 1972 in London, following an operation. In 2008, he was officially recognised as a Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem, the Holocaust remembrance authority in Israel.

 

Raymond’s daughter Helena was born in Islington. Her mother, Elena is a psychotherapist. Helena and her brothers were brought up in Golders Green and she was educated at South Hampstead High School and completed her A levels at Westminster School. Helena was denied admission to King’s College, Cambridge, not because of her academic performance but because college officials were afraid that she would leave during the course to pursue her acting career.

When Helena was five, her mother had a serious nervous breakdown, from which it took her three years to recover. Upon her recovery, her experience in therapy led her to become a psychotherapist herself. Five years after her mother’s recovery, her father was clobbered badly after the complications during that operation. With her brothers at college, Helena was left to help her mother cope.

Helena famously received no formal acting training, but was nonetheless given a break in 1979, the Year Of Jeremy, Mary Wynch and Helena’s dad being left completely fucked after the ah doctors they were wonderful found that the scalpel slipped and soon became a very successful actress.

In 1994, Helena met Kenneth Branagh and they began an affair, while Branagh was still married to Emma Thompson, whom he had met in 1987 and married in 1989.

The vile research assistant Mandy Leigh who worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School and played the role of School Bully for Dr Cathy Wilson and the other senior staff who were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring there (see previous posts) knew Kenneth Branagh and in 1989 was in hot pursuit of him and seriously pissed off that he was on the verge of getting hitched to Emma. Never mind Mandy, you were on a much higher salary than everyone else because of that fiddle that had been done with the Wellcome, you had sex with the appalling Top Doctor Richard Penketh in the lab during work hours while Penketh told you how much he wanted to shag everyone else in the Dept as well and you were a paid-up member of the gang who forced me out of my job because I wouldn’t keep quiet about what Dafydd et al were doing in north Wales.

Mandy’s father was a retired civil servant – so he knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring before his daughter went to work for the people who had run it as Nice Young Doctors – and her brother Charles was a banker. The corrupt MSF rep David Hole at St George’s was very angry when he found out that Charles Leigh’s bonus was bigger than Hole’s annual salary. Nonetheless Hole obtained a nice little number at St George’s by keeping a lid on the criminality and wrongdoing there, managed to purchase a house in Wandsworth that ended up being worth a great deal of money and busied himself as an SDP Councillor in Wandsworth, the Council that was running the Westminster Paedophile Ring along with St George’s.

Donald Naismith, the Director of Education for Wandsworth, was known to be an active paedophile. David Hole came from Minehead and by the time that I had arrived to begin work at St George’s, he had gone right through my CV and made a careful note of my former addresses, educational institutions, jobs etc and I have now been told that he networked with as many people who knew me as he could who were also concealing serious criminal activity…

Jeremy appeared at Minehead Magistrates Court to be committed for trial at the Old Bailey:

1965 Jeremy Thorpe.jpg

 

Former SBS officer and James Bond character Paddy turned up in Somerset after that business with Mr Thrope at Minehead and the Old Bailey with an unlikely story of having been made redundant and thus he relocated from Geneva to the West Country in search of a job as a youth worker, only to find himself elected as the Liberal MP for Yeovil in 1983. I can see the logic in the security services sending Paddy to the region in the face of Mr Thrope’s activities, but I would have thought that the point of Paddy et al was to put a stop to the Westminster Paedophile Ring, not to collude with it.

 

Emma Thompson’s own background is similar to Helena’s, ie. Hampstead and luvvie. Emma’s mum was Scottish actress Phyllida Law and her dad was Eric Thompson who did the ‘Magic Roundabout’, while no-one knew about Jimmy Savile or the elite paedophile ring at the BBC. Emma went to Camden High School for Girls along with Julia Hobsbawm and Gordon Brown’s wife and then Newnham College Cambridge, where Emma joined Footlights, had a relationship with Stephen Fry and was friends with many of the other budding stars who also knew my two media friends who were shafted by the gang for daring to support me in the face of Dafydd et al.

Stephen Fry of Celebrity Manic Depression – although the latest diagnosis has confirmed that Fry doesn’t have manic depression after all, having pissed off a lot of people who do have manic depression by making those TV programmes which were not that truthful with regard to the Help on offer from the Top Doctors, just when Dafydd and the gang found themselves in need of a bit of good PR once more – has revealed that at Cambridge, Emma was known as Emma Talented, rather than Emma who’s dad had the shit on everyone and you really don’t want it being made public do you, you know Emma would SOOOO like to be an actress and we think that she’s Talented and the School Agrees!

In 1982, as Mary Wynch’s solicitors Birnberg & Co in Camden began legal action against Dafydd and the gang, Emma’s dad died as a result of circulatory problems at the age of just 52. Emma has commented that this “tore [the family] to pieces” and “I can’t begin to tell you how much I regret his not being around”. She added, “At the same time, it’s possible that were he still alive I might never have had the space or courage to do what I’ve done … I have a definite feeling of inheriting space. And power.” Although Emma does now know how Fings Break when the Top Docs become anxious.

    • Here’s Emma Talented Thompson (far left and on screen) speaking at the World Economic Forum in 2008:

Emma with the award she was given during the ‘Presentation of the Crystal Award’ at the Annual Meeting 2008 of the World Economic Forum in Davos, in January 2008:

Following Kenneth’s Branagh’s affair with Helena Bonham Carter, Kenneth and Emma divorced in 1995. Emma developed clinical depression, but while while filming Sense and Sensibility in 1995, she began a relationship with her co-star Greg Wise. Commenting on how she was able to overcome her depression, Emma told Radio 4 “Work saved me and Greg saved me. He picked up the pieces and put them together again.” The couple had a daughter, Gaia, a pregnancy that was achieved through IVF treatment when Thompson was 39.

I absolutely would not wish Dafydd and the gang on Emma, but it would have been so nice if Emma had not kept quiet about this absolute barrel of shit while her friends and colleagues destroyed the lives and careers of my friends and I.

Emma and Greg’s permanent residence is in Hampstead, but they spend a lot of time in Scotland and Emma has declared that she feels Scottish. I don’t expect that they stay in a Travelodge when they are in Scotland. Although I wouldn’t either because they are quite expensive for such soulless dreadful places.

In 2003, Talented Scottish Emma did what all luvvies who also Care enough to speak at Davos do and acquired a Black Orphan, in Emma’s case a Rwandan former child soldier, named Tindyebwa Agaba. They met at a Refugee Council event when he was 16 and Emma invited him to spend Christmas at their home. “Slowly”, Thompson has commented, “he became a sort of permanent fixture, came on holiday to Scotland with us, became part of the family.” Agaba became a British citizen in 2009. Agaba is no doubt grateful which is fine but er Emma, there were many other people suffering and you um have given the friends and associates of a gang of traffickers who murdered witnesses a bit of good PR which made it so much easier for them to denounce the rest of us as lying criminals.

Emma became Dame Emma in 2018.I found out about this the other day when I was reading ‘Hello!’ or something dreadful in the dentists. Emma explained that she doesn’t believe in honours but she decided that she’d accept it anyway, because it’s a nice little badge to add to all of the others and there was a nice pic of her at the Palace. Which could be viewed as doing as much damage to the Royal Family as Carlo’s friend Stephen Fry did when he boasted about snorting coke in Buck House. If Stephen the Not Manic Depressive Any More and Emma Scottish and Talented are part of a Cunning Plan to undermine the Establishment from within, I appreciate the sentiment but it isn’t working. Stephen, Emma and I might be bright enough to have a good laugh at it, but the Top Docs are still withdrawing healthcare from anyone who spills the pints of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and it is Stephen and Emma’s links with the Royals and bankers and the Celebs who do Good Works that is keeping the show on the road.

What we really needed Emma and Stephen was a bit of help in 1986 when we could have exposed the Westminster Paedophile Ring before our friends were murdered and we were fitted up for criminal offences…

In Dec 1986, Oliver Brooke, the Professor of Paediatrics at St George’s, was jailed for the possession of child porn. Ollie was released on appeal when  Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane cut his sentence and compared Ollie’s vast collection of child porn, which occupied the cupboards of his office in St George’s, with a collection of cigarette cards. Ollie’s Top Doctors friends wrote to the Court explaining that Ollie never meant no harm and he was a lovely bloke really. Ollie was the key figure in a pan-European paedophile ring. See post ‘Oliver!’ His mates at St George’s remained in post facilitating the ring. One of Ollie’s friends was Mandy Leigh’s boss, Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain. Chamberlain was also involved in large scale research fraud and as a young Top Doctor had conducted experiments on live late gestation foetuses whom he had unlawfully aborted and then killed when the experiments were over. See post ‘Now Then…’
Chamberlain was mates with the Royal Gynaecologist Sir George Pinker. See post ‘Wimmin’s Wellbeing – the Fortnum and Mason Connection’. Chamberlain had a Wimpole Street practice with rich celebs as patients, one of whom was Cilla. I feel OK about publicising this, because Cilla was a mate of Chamberlain’s as well as his patient and gave interviews to the media about what a good bloke Chamberlain was. I knew when I worked at St George’s that Cilla was his patient and knew them all down there but Cilla only made it public after Chamberlain and his colleague Malcolm Pearce had been exposed in a research fraud scandal. Which was followed by another scandal in their Dept. Then another scandal in the same Dept. By that time the Waterhouse Inquiry was underway and then in 2000, the year that the Waterhouse Report was published, Chamberlain retired from the NHS, moved to south Wales and took up a lecturing job in the history of medicine at Swansea University. He used to tell everyone that he’d never leave London because Harrod’s was the only place where one could find a decent barber, so I wonder how he was tempted over to the University of Rhodri Morgan’s Family.
Surprise, Surprise! Here’s Cilla in the Daily Mail and Cilla on Desert Island Discs, extolling the virtues of Geoffrey Chamberlain…
Cilla Black kept her love for Scottie Road even when she ...
  • Chamberlain’s son was a business partner of Wayne Hemingway of ‘Red Or Dead’ shoe shop fame and Chamberlain ensured that he advertised Red or Dead whenever he could, by mentioning his Rebel Son who wasn’t a Top Doctor tch tch.

Helena Bonham Carter has or had her own fashion line. As of course has Stella McCartney, daughter of Paul McCartney. Paul was a mate of Cilla’s back in Liverpool in the 1960s when Dafydd and the gang found business beginning to boom because of the appetite of Stars for young sex workers and drugs. The McCartneys used to be neighbours of Ronnie Waterhouse’s in St John’s Wood. Brian Epstein, the Beatles’ manager, was gay, used rent boys and recreational chemicals and died in Aug 1967 in questionable circumstances where the Beatles were over in Bangor, at the Bangor Normal College no less, doing their bit with that guru. See previous posts for further details and the many McCartney/Beatles links to Dafydd’s network.

In 1999, after five years together, Helena and Kenneth Branagh also separated. In 2001, Helena began a relationship with American film director Tim Burton. Helena and Tim lived in two adjoining houses in Belsize Park, London. Graham Chapman of Python fame lived in Belsize Park. Chapman abused teenaged boys for years and this was an open secret. Chapman and his partner adopted a 13 year old runaway from Liverpool but told everyone that he was 17. When Chapman first adopted this boy he was interviewed by the police who were a little concerned what with Chapman being an ‘omosexual – no-one used the word ‘paedophile’ outside forensic psychiatry circles in those days – but Chapman reminded the plod that he was a Top Doc and indeed this was a case of
  • Catherine Tate Quotes. QuotesGram
Chapman was indeed a Top Doc, he qualified at Barts but only practised for a few months before becoming a full-time luvvie, having been introduced to that world via Footlights when he was at Cambridge. Barts had facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring for years, stretching back at least to the days when Lady Juliet Bingley’s dad Reginald Vick was a surgeon there. Things were helped considerably with the arrival of Anthony Clare as Prof of Psychological Medicine at Barts and when Clare departed, Dafydd’s mate Linford Rees was appointed to that position, in 1996, the year that William Hague announced the forthcoming Waterhouse Inquiry. Linford and his wife were from south Wales and Linford’s daughter was the 1970s Poldark star, Angharad Rees. Angharad was married to Christopher Cazenove who’s brother was an officer in one of those posh regiments associated with Buck House duties rather than fighting wars. Christopher hit the big time when he became one of the stars of ‘Dynasty’. He died as a result of what sounded to me very much like an HIV related illness or a condition which resulted from the use of a contaminated needle, Angharad died at a not very great age from cancer and one of their sons was killed in a road accident in circumstances which no-one could explain. See post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ for further details.
Jonathan Frappell, one of the Top Docs who worked in Chamberlain’s Dept at St George’s, was married to a former Angel from Barts. She wasn’t very popular because she was rude and insulting to junior docs and often refused to even speak to them on the grounds that she was married to a senior doc herself. The junior docs resented this intensely and referred to ‘the airhead of a Barts nurse who shagged and bagged a doctor’. Presumably Jonathan was working at the Barts of the Ring at the time. Jonathan subsequently was appointed as a consultant in Plymouth and also has a medico-legal practice. See previous posts.
In 2006, Helena and Tim bought the Mill House in Sutton Courtenay, near Didcot in Oxfordshire. It was previously leased by Helena’s grandmother, Violet and owned by her great-grandfather  H.H. Asquith. Helena and Burton have two children together. Helena told  The Torygraph and several other interviewers of her struggles with infertility and the difficulties that she had during her pregnancies. She noted that before the conception of her daughter, she and Burton had been trying for a baby for two years and although they conceived naturally, they were considering IVF.
After Brown and I began publishing about the mental health services from 2004-05 onward, I was struck by how many celebs began talking of how they had IVF, even those whom, it transpired had conceived naturally. I was a bit puzzled by this because although IVF had become big business by then and people were using it, the success rates were low, the business practices unscrupulous and there was much patient dissatisfaction, which was not appearing anywhere in the media. I knew what went on in fertility clinics because I worked in the St George’s one and I knew other people who worked in other fertility clinics at the time and it was not a pretty sight. Then I realised that all these celebs talking of the wonderful ways of IVF were linked into Dafydd’s network. Dafydd et al knew that I used to work in fertility and they knew what I would have found out about.
Did anyone at all in 2004-05 apart from my old buddies like Brown know that I still remembered the scams and bad practice that I witnessed in fertility clinics? One person did; Merfyn, the VC of Bangor University at that time. I’d had a conversation with Merfyn re societal changes during the 1960s and Merfyn of course discussed the contraceptive pill. After the interview – which is what it was, I interviewed Merfyn while I was doing my PhD, as part of a group of people who grew up in Welsh speaking rural Wales and who then moved into careers in public life – I e mailed him to say thanks and I mentioned that I used to work in a fertility clinic years ago and although what was happening in fertility was scientifically amazing, fraud and bad practice was rampant and resources would probably be better invested in other ways. I did not mention any names or breach confidence.
Previous posts have mentioned that by 2004-05 the paedophiles’ friends were trying to force Merfyn out of his job and indeed out of public life altogether, because his late wife Nerys had Challenged The Paedophiles, then Merfyn’s friend, a junior Gov’t Minister had cleared my name after the gang had tried to have me struck off the teaching register and to add fuel to the fire, Merfyn gave me a place to do a PhD in Bangor University.
I have detailed how John McTernan’s brother-in-law stole my computer in 2005, how documents were stolen from my car, how boxes of documents relating to me, F and our battles with those we know and love were stolen from my property and how a box of all the old letters that Brown and I had written to each other when we were young had been stolen. I have in previous posts and comments mentioned that Sue Collick, Merfyn’s PA, accessed Merfyn’s inbox, even the messages that she knew that she was not entitled to read and that she was passing info on. I have also mentioned in previous comments that Andrew Harrison, an undercover officer, registered as a law student at Bangor and harvested staff passwords in order to access staff e mail accounts. Andrew’s ultimate ambition was to hack into Merfyn’s computer. I raised the matter with IT and admin at Bangor University only to be ignored.

Well paedophiles’ friends in Gov’t and the media, I do hope that you enjoyed yourselves reading my e mails and documents. And of course that you found the contents of Merfyn’s computer as interesting. Perhaps Helena of CAMDEN GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL, which was also attended by Julia Hobsbawm and Gordon Brown’s wife Sarah, could now let me know who told her and others to make those vacuous comments about IVF, lest Brown and I began to publish on wrongdoing in the field as well. Whoever read all those confidential documents and e mails will have read the details of the serious criminal offences on the part of Top Docs and others towards me and others. Patients died as a result.

In 2008, Merfyn’s wife Nerys died at the hands of Dafydd’s mates at the Walton Centre. She couldn’t even rest in peace in Llanfaglan Church without Lord Snowdon Of Belgravia Throughout His Entire Life arriving there after he’d died.

But at least Helena is a Star!

In 2013 Merfyn resigned as the Chair of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board after a spate of patient deaths resulting from hospital acquired infections. The Top Docs and others witheld crucial information from Merfyn and the Board, so Merfyn was not able to make the decisions necessary, would find himself at the centre of a scandal and would be forced to resign. I knew about the conspiracy because I was told; well the person concerned screamed it at me, rather than told me. Just as I knew about the conspiracy to force Merfyn out of his job as VC of Bangor University by a huge co-ordinated conspiracy of non-co-operation on the part of staff who were paedophiles’ friends. See posts ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’.

Helena was made a CBE in the 2012 New Years Honours list for services to drama and in January 2014, the PM, Call Me Dave, announced that Helena had been appointed to Britain’s new national Holocaust Commission. Are we talking the Holocaust in Central Europe or Holocaust in north Wales Dave, the Holocaust which in 2014 was the subject of yet another cover-up by Lady Julia Macur?

On 23 December 2014, Helena and Tim announced that they had “separated amicably” earlier that year.

Various Daily Mailesque ‘reports’ consisting of nothing but photos of famous people hugging and kissing each other have reported on the friendship between Helena and Ruby Wax. Ruby has been one of the cheerleaders for Mindfulness, the fraud perpetrated by Dafydd’s former colleague Prof Mark Williams, when Mark worked with the gang in Bangor in the late 1980s. Ruby became a source of PR for the gang after she purchased an Masters in Mindfulness from Oxford, but they told her that it was a Masters in ‘Brain Science’. That enabled Ruby to become an Expert and she was soon rewarded with a Chair in Psychiatric Nursing at the University of Surrey shortly after Operation Pallial re-opened the investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and about the time that Mark Williams former colleague Tony Francis who recommended Mindfulness to a great many people killed himself. Ruby bagging that Chair was extraordinary but having said that, Ruby cannot do more damage as a Professor of Nursing than Fiona Irvine and Chris Burton. See previous posts for info on Ruby, Fiona and Chris…

 

There is a never ending supply of Bonham Carters. Meet a distant relative of Helena’s:

Sir Stuart Bonham Carter
Arrival of Powerful American Task Force To Operate With Home Fleet. 3 and 4 April 1942, on Board HMS Edinburgh, in Mid-atlantic. the Task Force Is Under the Command of Rear Admiral R G Griffen. A9241.jpg

Vice Admiral Bonham-Carter on the bridge of HMS Edinburgh, 1942
Born 9 July 1889 Portsmouth, Hampshire
Died 5 September 1972 (aged 83), Petersfield, Hampshire
Years of service 1904–1945

Vice Admiral Sir Stuart Sumner Bonham Carter, (9 July 1889-5 September 1972) joined the Royal Navy in 1904 and served in WW I as the commander of HMS Intrepid and then HMS Shark. A keen cricketer, he played for the Royal Navy Cricket Club. Sir Stuart was appointed Chief of Staff to the Commander-in-Chief, Africa Station in 1928 and made Assistant Director for Navy Equipment in 1932 before becoming Chief Staff Officer to the Commander of the 1st Cruiser Squadron in 1934. Sir Stuart was given command of the Royal Naval Barracks at Chatham in 1937 and made Naval Secretary in 1939.

Sir Stuart also served in WW II commanding the 3rd Battle Squadron from 1940 and the 18th Cruiser Squadron from 1942. He was made Flag Officer, Malta in 1942 and retired due to ill health in 1943, although he was recalled in 1944 to lead Naval Convoys. In 1933 he married Eve Lloyd; they had one child, Joanna. He is distant relative of Helena Bonham Carter.

One of the people who played a huge part in Richard Crossman’s life when Crossman ran the DHSS for the benefit of the Westminster Paedophile Ring was Tommy Balogh. Balogh was a personal friend of Crossman and Crossman rated his advice, so much so that Crossman spent much time drawing up questionable strategies which would keep Balogh at the heart of Gov’t and enable him to have access to restricted material when Harold Wilson removed Balogh from various roles. Crossman’s ‘Diaries’ detail it all, how Wilson knows what Crossman is up to and explicitly warns him that Tommy is not be given access to certain material or invited to certain meetings. Richard Crossman comes up with the plan to trump all others; if Tommy is given a peerage that will overcome the obstacles that are being placed in his way…
Balogh was indeed given a peerage, but I’m not sure exactly how Crossman twisted Wilson’s arm, although I can guess. Balogh was obviously crucial to the running of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and so were both the people to whom he was married.

Tamás (Thomas) Balogh, Baron Balogh (2 November 1905-20 January 1985) was an economist who was ‘an adviser to Harold Wilson’s Gov’t’. The elder son of a wealthy Budapest Jewish family (his father was head of public transport, his mother the daughter of a Professor), Balogh studied at the city Gymnasium, considered ‘the Eton of Hungarian youth’, then at the universities of Budapest and Berlin. He took a two year research position at Harvard as a Rockefeller Fellow in 1928. Following this, Balogh worked in banking in Paris, Berlin and Washington before coming to England.

After getting British citizenship in 1938, Balogh became a lecturer at Balliol College and was elected to a Fellowship in 1945, then became Reader in 1960. He was also the economic correspondent for the ‘New Statesman’, an economic adviser to Wilson’s Cabinet office following the 1964 Labour Party victory and member of the Secretariat of the League of Nations.

As an adviser in the Cabinet Office, Balogh was a critic of consumption and profit-orientated tax policies, arguing that “profit can be earned not merely by satisfying long felt wants more efficiently and in a better fashion, but also by creating new wants through artificially engendered satisfaction and the suggestion of status symbols”, maintaining that nationalisation was a better means of securing wage restraint and a more equitable tax system as a whole. Balogh was opposed to Britain’s entry of the EEC.

Any readers feeling inadequate today because their neighbour has a better car than them? I had no idea that the materialistic crap that Brown and I spent so much of our young lives fighting was invented by a friend of Dafydd’s gang. No wonder Dafydd’s fan club used to stress that Dafydd had lots of money, a Merc and aeroplanes.

On with the revolution!

The ‘Sussex academic’ website mentions Tommy Balogh and plugs a book about him, ‘The Life and Times of Thomas Balogh, A Macaw Among Mandarins’.

Thomas Balogh (1905–1985) had a conspiratorial nature and deliberately kept to the shadows so that his substantial role in political life has been little known. His predictions were usually right and he looked at economic and political issues from unconventional angles, but he was an exasperating man who thrived on controversy. He made many enemies and had numerous fallings-out, especially with civil servants, and this affected the way his advice was perceived.

This first and only biography covers his life and work: from his youth in Budapest, to his coming to Britain in 1930 and being taken up by Keynes; his advance to being a well known if highly controversial political economist; his reputation as a brilliant though eccentric don at Balliol College, Oxford; his burgeoning interest in politics; and the time of his greatest influence as economic adviser to his close friend Harold Wilson.

Balogh’s interests in North Sea Oil and Gas exploitation and his criticism of governmental failure to exact higher revenue from the oil companies is documented and the analysis is a counterbalance to the official history. June Morris’s interpretation of Balogh’s relationship with Harold Wilson and Marcia Williams and, more particularly and perhaps more controversially, the relationship between Wilson and Williams, does not match those contained in the memoirs of Bernard Donoughue and Joe Haines. And there are correctives to some of the myths surrounding Wilson’s leadership of the Labour Party and his Prime Ministership.

He was married twice: firstly in 1945 to Penelope Noel Mary Ingram Tower (daughter of Rev. Henry Bernard Tower, Vicar of Swinbrook, Oxfordshire, and widow of Oliver Gatty [1907-1940], a Balliol Fellow, by whom she had a daughter, Tirril), a psychotherapist, with whom he had two sons and a daughter; secondly in 1970 to Catherine (née Storr), a psychologist.

 Penelope Balogh wrote ‘Freud, A Biographical Introduction’ in 1972; and also a volume entitled ‘Up With the Joneses’ in 1965. Sir Clough’s wife’s relatives the analysts James and Alix Strachey were the British authorities on Freud (see post ‘The Vermin Club’) and Penny Balogh will have known them and their friends.
Penny Balogh gets a mention on the AGIP (Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy) website:
History of AGIP:

In the late 1960s, there was dissatisfaction amongst some reflective psychoanalytic psychotherapists over current practice, including the rigid divisions then operating between psychoanalytic schools. Penelope Balogh became interested in what the ‘new therapies’ coming from the USA might offer traditional models. Her active enquiry in this area was considered inappropriate by the then Association of Psychotherapists (now BAP) of which she was a founder member. Following debate, she withdrew to work with Joshua Bierer at the British Association of Social Psychiatry (BASP) to create an inclusive training. Other therapists joined her there. This group was subsequently evicted for being ‘too analytic’; whereupon it expanded and formed a weekly training seminar under the auspices of Professor Pond of the London Hospital.

Desmond Pond was one of the key movers and shakers in the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Sir Dessie didn’t just see the patients on the wards and in the clinics, Sir Des came up with all sorts of innovations for Poor People to be told that they couldn’t look after their own kids and thus the kids should be given to Dafydd’s gang to look after; assessment centres, therapy units, residential units so the targets could be scrutinised 24 hrs a day for weeks just to ensure that they will never pass the ‘normal person’ test.

Sir Desmond Arthur Pond (2 September 1919-29 June 1986) was educated at the John Lyon School in Harrow and at St Olave’s Grammar School in Orpington in Kent. He graduated from Clare College, Cambridge and trained as a Top Doc at UCH and at Duke University School of Medicine, North Carolina. From 1948 to 1952 Des was Senior Lecturer in the Department of Neurophysiology at the Maudsley. From 1952 to 1966 he was consultant psychiatrist at Maudsley and UCH. Dafydd ‘trained’ at the Maudsley during that time, while the Top Docs at the Maudsley, including Dafydd’s boss Dr Bob Hobson, were running a big sex abuse ring under the umbrella of community psychiatry and therapy, which was Des’s speciality as well.

In 1966 Des was appointed the first Professor of Psychiatry at the London Hospital. The London Hospital serves Tower Hamlets and Dafydd’s partner gang were running the ring down there. Wendy Savage, the Labour supporting Feminist Top Doc, trained and worked at the London Hospital and her patients were the victims of Dafydd’s gang; Wendy performed as many as 14 or 15 abortions on some of them, explaining to the world that she was dealing with chaotic, dysfunctional, personality disordered women who Made Bad Choices, rather than the targets of a ruthless criminal gang. Wendy was a pal of Geoffrey Chamberlain the facilitator of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See post ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends’. Lord Bob Winston trained at the London Hospital and he too knew what Chamberlain, Savage and Dafydd’s gang were doing. See previous posts.

Desmond Pond was a founder member of the Institute of Religion and Medicine in 1964. His efforts helped to ‘establish the role of psychiatry in general practice and his contributions were recognised by the award of honorary Fellowship of the Royal College of General Practitioners’.

Pond served on the Neurosciences Board of the MRC, 1968-72 and President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, 1978-81, while Dafydd and the gang had illegally imprisoned Mary Wynch. Pond was knighted in 1981. Pond served as Chief Scientist at the DHSS, 1982-85. Which was when I was first propositioned by Gwynne and Brown and I were repeatedly threatened by the gang…

Pond married physician Helen Jordan and the couple had three daughters. Pond died of cancer, in Torquay, in 1986. See previous posts for further info on Pond…

Here’s a man in Torquay who found a dead body, tried to conceal it and ended up in a mess from which he could not extract himself:

 

From this seminar arose two further ventures: the Consortium of Psychotherapists; and the ‘Sunday Group’, which met monthly to learn about the new therapies. This group met in Penelope Balogh’s home, 29 St Mark’s Crescent, NW1.

St Mark’s Crescent is in Primrose Hill, which was where Uncle Harry’s nephews were brought up; they inherited the house when Uncle Harry’s sister and brother-in-law died.

Neighbours - Channel ELEVEN - Network Ten

 

I never watched ‘Neighbours’, but I did know the theme song. When Patient F was still living in Carneddi with the woman who knew Dafydd’s gang and who fleeced him in collusion with other members of the gang (see previous posts), one of his neighbours was a thug. One day F was outside singing the theme song to ‘Neighbours’ and just as he got to the bit ‘that’s when neighbours become good friends’, the window of The Thug’s house flew open and his wife stuck her head out and yelled out ‘will you fucking well shut up’. So F said, ‘Miriam you’ve got a mouth like the Mersey tunnel, I’m only singing’.

F went into his house and then the door flow open and in marched The Thug. He went to hit F and according to F ‘I didn’t plan it, but my foot just flew out in a reflex action and I got him right in the crotch. He yelled and bent over, everyone saw it and were laughing at him. He crept back to his house and I haven’t heard anything from him or bloody Miriam since’.

I remember the sensation in Carneddi when it all happened, a lot of the Oppressed were grateful to F because Miriam and The Thug caused a lot of people a lot of problems. But I wonder if The Thug and Miriam might have subsequently seen their opportunity for revenge? When the row happened, F was the stepdad to his then partner’s children and she hadn’t yet given birth to the baby who was hijacked and brought up by members of the gang after fallacious allegations were made about F. One of the insults that had been yelled at F by Miriam was ‘you’re a bloody hippy and your kids should all be taken into care’. That was why the hippies of Bethesda were so chuffed that a Hippy had crippled The Thug. I know how the gang works. When ammunition is needed against a target, the sex offending social workers of Gwynedd invite people to Share Information In Confidence. All lies are gratefully received. It’s open season, the gang are going to shaft someone, old scores will be settled.

In 1973, the idea of a formal training, both more thorough and more adventurous, was revived and was planned by Penelope Balogh and others. In June 1974, the Lady Balogh’s Psychotherapy Trust was created, with AGIP as an ‘autonomous part’ of it. In September 1974, AGIP took its first intake of students.

 

Penelope Balogh died in June 1975. In Oct 1975, Andrew Netwon shot Rinka, Norman Scott’s dog and then tried to shoot Norman.

AGIP’s Constitution was adopted at the inaugural General Meeting of 24January 1981, held at Burgh House, Hampstead. The first meeting of AGIP Council was held in September 1982, in which year also AGIP was represented at the first ‘Rugby’ Conference for Psychotherapy.

In 1987, following much debate throughout the organisation, the Trustees sold 29 St Mark’s Crescent, which was too expensive to maintain. It was decided to re-invest all the money in another large property, which could be a Trust headquarters for potential use by all the sections of the Trust (by then including ENWLPC, SLPC and the Freegrove Society). The Trustees accordingly bought 1 Fairbridge Road, N19, to which AGIP moved.

During the 1980s and 90s, AGIP members played a prominent part in establishing the United Kingdom Standing Conference for Psychotherapy (the beginnings of the UKCP).

Dorothy Hamilton, AGIP’s then Director, was its Honorary Secretary from 1986 to 1992. In 1989, AGIP was enrolled as a member at the inaugural meeting of the UKSCP and in 1992, AGIP’s training was accepted by the Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Section of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. In 1993, AGIP therapists were enrolled on the UKCP Register.

In 1994, the Trustees provided funding for the Fairbridge Clinic for low-fee paying patients, which was opened and subsequently operated by AGIP.

During the 1990s, it became apparent that AGIP was becoming too large and important to remain a ‘part’ of another organisation, and that it needed its own legal status. In 1996, the Trustees made an offer to facilitate AGIP’s independence from the Trust: a joint Working Party was formed to review the matter. Separation was achieved at the end of 1999, when AGIP became a Company Limited by Guarantee and thus entered a new phase of its history as a fully independent legal entity.

The Waterhouse Report was published in Feb 2000, but those In High Places knew the contents by the end of 1999.

Tommy Balogh’s second wife was Catherine Storr, Top Doc herself and the former wife of Top Doc Anthony Storr. Catherine Storr (born Catherine Cole, 21 July 1913- 8 January 2001) was psychiatrist and an English children’s writer, best known for a series of books about a wolf ineptly pursuing a young girl, beginning with Clever Polly and the Stupid Wolf. She also wrote under the name Helen Lourie.

 

Catherine was born in Kensington, one of three children of a barrister, Arthur Frederick Andrew Cole (1883–1968) and his wife, Margaret Henrietta, born Gaselee (1882–1971). She attended St Paul’s School, where she was taught music by Gustav Holst and became the school’s organist. She went on to study English literature at Newnham College, Cambridge. Catherine then studied medicine, qualifying in 1944. From 1950 to 1963 she worked as a Senior Medical Officer in the Department of Psychological Medicine at the Middlesex Hospital, which was run by Gwynne’s mates, as he lobotomised away up in north Wales. While Gwynne was busy, Catherine wrote children’s books as well as worked as a Top Doctor. Catherine also worked as an Editorial Assistant for Penguin Books, from 1966-early 1970s.

Catherine had met the psychiatrist and author Anthony Storr (1920–2001) during her training and married him in 1942. She had three daughters by this marriage, Sophia, Polly and Emma. They divorced in 1970 and she subsequently married the Tommy Belogh.

Richard Crossman made reference to Tommy’s wife in his ‘Diaries’; it was Penny to whom he referred. Penny, like Tommy, was party to Cabinet information and occasionally turned up for socials and meetings.

Catherine continued writing novels into her 80s. She died at her London flat in January, 2001, the month before Waterhouse published the massive cover-up.

Catherine wrote two series of the ATV series ‘Starting Out’ (1973 and 1976), made to be shown in schools. She had two brothers, one being Hugo Cole, the music critic of ‘The Guardian’.

Anthony Storr (18 May 1920-17 March 2001) was born in London and educated at Winchester College, Christ’s College Cambridge and Westminster Hospital. Leo Abse’s brother Wilfred trained at the Westminster, as did his other brother Dannie. Wilfred and Dannie facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Wilfred was a psychiatrist who spent his early career working in Wales as part of Gwynne and Dafydd’s wider network. See post ‘O Jones, O Jones’.

In 1974, Storr moved from private practice to a teaching appointment at the Warneford Hospital in Oxford, until his retirement in 1984. Previous posts including ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends… and ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’ discussed the existence of an abuse ring in Oxford which was concealed by Oxford University, Oxford Social Services and Oxfordshire Health Authority, Dame Rosemary Rue reaching the highest echelons in medicine after she uncovered the ring. Crossman’s friend Dame Isabel Graham Bryce was the Chairman of the RHB who kept the lid on it all at the top before and during Crossman’s time.

Storr was, as one of his obituarists observed, “no stranger to suffering”. He married twice, to Catherine Cole and then writer Catherine Peters in 1970 after the first marriage ended in divorce.

‘The Guardian’ published Storr’s obituary in 2001, which was written by Anthony Stevens:

Anthony Storr, who has died of a heart attack aged 80, was Britain’s most literate psychiatrist. A prolific author, journalist and radio and television commentator, he was widely respected as a fount of wisdom and good sense in a profession not particularly noted for such qualities. Like other kind and compassionate men, he was no stranger to suffering at formative stages of his life.

Born in London, Storr was a solitary, friendless child, plagued by frequent illness, including severe asthma and septicaemia, from which he nearly died. He was the youngest of four children, separated by 10 years from his closest sibling. His father, Vernon Faithfull Storr, sub-dean of Westminster Abbey, was 51 when Anthony was born, and his mother, Katherine Cecilia Storr, was 44. They were first cousins, and their consanguinity probably accounted for his asthma, from which he, like two of his siblings, suffered for most of his life. He also seems to have inherited from his mother a tendency to occasional episodes of depression.

Growing up in the privileged seclusion of Dean’s Yard, Westminster, as virtually an only child, Storr was particularly affected by the trauma, shared by most boys of his class and time, of being sent away to a boarding prep school at the age of eight. There, and later at Winchester College, he was bitterly unhappy.

Having been deprived of a childhood peer group in which to learn the skills of comradeship, he was ill-prepared for the rigours of boarding-school life. Extremely slow to make friends, and showing little proficiency for games, he was bullied, and made only average academic progress. Though utterly miserable, it never occurred to him to complain to his parents, or attempt to run away, because boarding school was then a fact of life. But the sense of being a loner never left him, and was to affect the course of his career, as well as the content of his books.

What preserved his sanity and emotional equilibrium was a growing passion for music. From an early age, he attended performances in Westminster Abbey of such works as Bach’s St Matthew Passion, and was later allowed to sit in the organ loft, an enormous thrill.

At Winchester, he sang in the choir, played the viola in the orchestra and piano solos in concerts. He always maintained that he would much rather have been a professional musician than a psychiatrist or writer, had he been blessed with the necessary talent and training; he freely acknowledged that his friendship with artists of the calibre of Alfred Brendel, and the musicologist Hans Keller, meant far more than would have equivalent friendships with Freud, Jung or Adler.

Storr’s decision to become a psychiatrist was made soon after he went up to Christ’s College, Cambridge, in 1939. His moral tutor was CP Snow, who became a lifelong friend. “I owed him a tremendous debt,” Storr told me. “He was the first person who made me feel I might be any good at anything. I had disappointed my parents and teachers by not doing nearly as well as I should have. When I told Snow tentatively that I might go into psychiatry, he said, ‘I think you’d be very good at it.’ It was a ridiculous thing to decide one’s future on a chance comment like that. The crucial thing was that he liked me, and thought I could do it.”

After two years at Cambridge, Storr was given a wartime courtesy degree without taking a tripos, and continued his medical studies at Westminster hospital (1941-44), where he won prizes for medicine and surgery. He gained membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 1946.

His asthma precluded military service and, after a period as house physician at Runwell hospital, he went to the Maudsley hospital (1947-50), where he survived the ordeal of being Professor Aubrey Lewis’s first senior registrar on his newly-formed professorial unit. Lewis, an obsessional polymath highly critical of his staff, undermined the confidence of everyone who worked for him.

See previous posts for details of the insanity and brutality of Audrey Lewis and the frank abuse of patients by Lewis and his colleagues.

Storr stuck it for nearly two years, then asked to be moved, thus effectively ruining his prospects for advancement within the psychiatric establishment. “I owed Lewis one thing, at least,” admitted Storr. “Once you had suffered the experience of presenting a case at one of his Monday morning conferences, no other public appearance, whether on radio, TV or the lecture platform, could hold any terrors for you.”

He obtained the diploma of psychological medicine in 1951, and, developing an interest in analytical psychotherapy, went into analysis with Jung’s English friend and colleague, Dr EA Bennet. He later became a member of the (Jungian) Society for Analytical Psychology. He practised psychotherapy privately, and, from 1961, combined his practice with various hospital appointments as a consultant.

Storr’s reputation as a writer and broadcaster began with publication of his first book, The Integrity Of The Personality, in 1960. He was 40, and, up to that point, had not thought of himself as a writer. “I just felt the need to explain to myself what the hell I thought I was doing,” he said. “For me, that is the motive for writing anything. I get intrigued by a puzzle, and writing a book is the best way to solve it.”

During the next six years, 11 other books followed, of which the most notable were The Dynamics Of Creation (1972), Jung (1973), The Art Of Psychotherapy (1979), Solitude (1989), Freud (1989), his favourite, Music And The Mind (1993), and Feet Of Clay (1996).

Although he did a Jungian training, Storr declined to be labelled a Jungian, preferring to remain “an eclectic sceptic rather than a convert”. His books reflected this lack of dogmatism. His love of music and literature, together with his medical and psychiatric training, enabled him to bridge the “two cultures” defined by his friend, Snow.

Storr’s particular gift for rendering difficult concepts accessible, as well as his lucid, immensely readable style, made his books as appealing to lay people as to professionals, and his sales reflected this. All but two of his 12 titles have remained in print and, while sales were steady in the UK, they did particularly well in the United States, where Solitude sold 100,000 copies. The Essential Jung (1983) sold 50,000 worldwide, Freud sold 30,000 and Jung 75,000. The books were translated into 24 languages, including Korean and Malaysian, and Storr was especially charmed when Solitude was translated into Chinese for the republic of Inner Mongolia.

Perhaps as a result of his own unhappiness, isolation and depression, Storr’s work revealed an abiding concern for those trapped in suffering, whether as psychiatric patients, prisoners or victims of oppression and torture. He served as a member of the Parole Board (1976-77) and the Williams Committee on Obscenity and Film Censorship (1977-79), and his need to penetrate the mysteries of deviant or violent behaviour was apparent in his books on Sexual Deviation (1964), Human Aggression (1968) and Human Destructiveness (1972).

At the same time, his understanding of human psychopathology gave him a rich appreciation of the creative possibilities inherent in mental suffering, and the powerful potential for self-healing to be found in artistic and intellectual creativity. This made him impatient with the medical model for psychiatry and its obsession with its symptomatic classification. “I want to show,” he wrote, “that the dividing lines between sanity and mental illness have been drawn in the wrong place. The sane are madder than we think, the mad saner.”

In 1974, Storr gave up private practice in favour of a teaching appointment at the Warneford hospital, Oxford; a post he held until his retirement in 1984. He was very happy in Oxford, enjoying dining rights at Wadham College and becoming a fellow of Green College, where he built his library from scratch.

Dafydd’s mate the Bastard Of Newcastle-upon-Tyne Lord John Walton was Warden of Green College. Lord John Walton’s presence as Chairman of the GMC for years during the 1980s and 90s ensured that no complaints against Gwynne, Dafydd or Tony Francis were ever investigated, although there were many of them and very serious ones. See previous posts.

A number of honours were granted him in appreciation of his contribution to psychiatry and literature. He was elected emeritus fellow of Green College (1984), fellow of the Royal Society of Literature (1990), and honorary fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (1993). The generosity of spirit, so apparent in his writing, was no less evident in his personality, and was freely expressed in the warm support and encouragement he gave to younger psychiatrists, psychotherapists and writers, as well as to the patients who came to consult him from all walks of life…

The Torygraph, March 2001, also provided an obituary for Storr:

ANTHONY STORR, who has died aged 80, made his name as the author of popular and erudite books on psychiatry, and as a broadcaster who was able to tackle the difficult subject of mental illness with lucidity and compassion.

Storr’s subjects ranged from sexual deviation to human aggression and from the individual’s need for solitude to the impulses of creativity. In all his work he revealed a deep sympathy for those trapped in mental suffering; at the same time, he retained an abiding belief in the therapeutic value of artistic and intellectual endeavour.

Although he had been trained under the influence of Jung and was receptive to the theories of Freud, Storr assimilated their ideas without being slavish. He rejected the dogmatic excesses of his profession and was impatient with those who sought to compartmentalise mental illness. He was vehemently opposed to the use of compulsory treatment, once observing that “the sane are madder than we think. The mad saner”.

Like many who have pursued a career in psychiatry, Storr himself was no stranger to mental anguish. His compassion for others was born of his own unhappiness and loneliness as a child and informed by the recurrent bouts of depression that affected him throughout his life. Charles Anthony Storr was born on May 18 1920 and brought up in the shadow of Westminster Abbey where his father, Vernon, was subdean. The youngest of four children by 10 years, Anthony was a chronic asthmatic, frequently plagued by illness. He also inherited from both parents a tendency to depression.

Storr was desperately unhappy at boarding school, where he was sent at the age of eight. Shy, nervous and bad at games, he was bullied and found it difficult to make friends. But he discovered that he could “ingratiate” himself with other boys by listening to their problems, a strategy that allowed him to relate to his peers without exposing himself to ridicule or rejection.

He also found solace in music. At Winchester he sang in the choir, and played the viola and piano. At home, he would often take his gramophone at night to the organ loft of Westminster Abbey and luxuriate as the strains of Bach or Handel reverberated around the empty nave. Later in Music and the Mind (1992) he disputed the Freudian theory that the purpose of music was to sublimate the libido, preferring to see it as creating “order within the mind”.

From Winchester College Storr went up to read Medicine at Christ’s College, Cambridge, where the novelist and scientist C P Snow became his tutor and friend. Snow encouraged his interest in psychiatry and when Storr’s father died in 1940, leaving him with insufficient money to complete his degree, Snow persuaded the college to provide the necessary funds.

Exempted from military service because of his asthma, Storr continued his medical studies at the Westminster Hospital Medical School after leaving Cambridge in 1941, and then became a houseman at Runwell Mental Hospital. He worked subsequently at the Maudsley Hospital where he did postgraduate training in Jungian psychiatry, gaining a diploma in 1951. Soon afterwards he set up in private practice, combining this work with staff appointments at various London hospitals.

In 1960, Storr published an article in the ‘New Statesman’ entitled Torture Without Violence in which he exposed the wartime use of psychiatrists to interrogate and torture prisoners. The ensuing public outcry led to Storr’s being co-opted on to a Government committee charged with formulating rules to outlaw the psychological torture of prisoners.

At that time Storr had no intention of becoming a full time writer. His first book, The Integrity of the Personality (1960), was written not for publication but in order to clarify his own thoughts on the relationship between the psychotherapist and his patient. The book’s popular appeal encouraged him to continue writing and other works followed fast and furiously.

In Sexual Deviation (1964 – part of the Penguin Studies in Social Pathology) he suggested, controversially, that the suffering of children who had been sexually abused “is more the result of adult horror than of anything intrinsically dreadful in the sexual contact itself”.

In Human Aggression (1968), he observed that aggression is a normal aspect of the human psyche and that, rather than suppressing or denying our violent impulses, they should be usefully channelled into competitive sports or in scientific or artistic pursuits. He expanded this theme in Human Destructiveness (1972), a book conceived in horrified response to the newsreels of Belsen he had seen at the end of the Second World War.

Storr saw human creativity as the flip-side of man’s capacity for cruelty and violence, and in The Dynamics of Creation (1972) he argued that artistic creativity has a therapeutic value in helping the artist and his public to achieve a greater understanding of themselves.

In Churchill’s Black Dog and Other Phenomena of the Human Mind (1980) he explored the links between creative genius and mental illness, suggesting in the title essay that it was Sir Winston Churchill’s recurrent bouts of depression that enabled him to express his country’s suffering in wartime and discern gleams of hope in apparently hopeless situations.

Storr retired from his psychotherapy practice in 1974 to take up a teaching appointment at the Warnefield hospital in Oxford. During the late 1970s he served as a member of the Parole Board and on the Williams Committee on Obscenity and Film Censorship. He also became a frequent participant in radio and television discussion programmes and wrote and presented television documentaries for the BBC.

In Solitude: a Return to the Self (1988) he challenged the popular view that happiness lies in human relationships; solitude and reflection, he suggested, are just as vital prerequisites of human happiness, as well as being essential for personal development.

In his final book, Feet of Clay (1996) Storr argued that there are psychological similarities between “crazy” messiahs, such as Jim Jones, the cult leader who led 900 of his followers to mass suicide in Guyana in 1978 and “respectable” religious leaders, including Jesus Christ.

As a writer and broadcaster, Storr cut an authoritative, urbane, almost avuncular figure. Yet throughout his life he remained subject to attacks of depression and self-doubt which he described as a “lot of ups and downs but not enough ups”. Perhaps not surprisingly, psychiatry helped him to cope with his own problems and he remained convinced that his manic periods were a vital mainspring of his own creative energy.

Anthony Storr married first, in 1942, Catherine Cole (the children’s writer Catherine Storr) by whom he had three daughters. The marriage was dissolved and he married secondly, in 1970, the writer Catherine Peters.

Storr was honorary consultant psychiatrist for Oxford Health Authority…
It is a stereotype, but they really all were barking mad and very, very nasty. In the wake of public horror at the conduct of people like Aubrey Lewis and Dr Death’s old boss William Sargant, Anthony Storr’s generation learnt to use the touchy feely language of the emotions to excuse their own abuses and the serious criminality of themselves and their friends. We all watched Tony Francis do it for years. The Storrs and Francis’s weren’t as identifiably mad as Dafydd and Gwynne but the documents in my possession demonstrate that they were fully on board, every bit as dangerous but knew that prison sentences would cometh if a different sort of public image was not created. Their power did not lie in any expertise or successful convincing of senior politicians; they were deeply unpopular and every Minister of Health and PM has privately – and in Ken Clarke’s case publicly – denounced the BMA as absolute bastards who are impossible to deal with. But the BMA know about all that very serious crime that foolish politicians relied upon a corrupt medical profession to conceal.
 The original members of the Westminster Paedophile Ring are virtually all dead now, as are the generation of Top Docs and social workers who led us into an abyss. But Death Shall Have No Dominion because their former students and junior colleagues, children and grandchildren have now taken their place and will do anything rather than admit what went on.

Extracts from a piece published in ‘The Times’ on March 9, 2010 reflecting on the development of public health as a specialism in medicine:

The Creation of the Faculty of Public Health:
A personal reflection by Walter Holland
 Emeritus Professor of Public Health Medicine
 Member Provisional Council/Board,1971-1972
 Member of Faculty Board,1972-1975
 President Faculty 1989-1992
This is a personal account of my experiences and views. A far more
comprehensive document is available which has some details of the
minutes of meetings which took place. This was prepared by Prof Michael
Warren, who was the first Academic Registrar of the Faculty… The Ministry’s first Chief Medical Officer, Sir George Newman, reiterated the Second World War brought on many changes that had an effect on
population health such as improvements in nutrition. The introduction of the National Health Service in 1948 had a major impact on public health. The strength of the public health departments had been evident during the war when the personal authority of MOH’s [Medical Officers of Heath] proved essential to the organisation of the emergency services for civil defence. Services for mothers, babies and school children had been greatly improved and broadened through the activities of public health departments, though with some friction with the general practitioners and not much help from paediatric or obstetric Hospitals.
Foundation of the NHS
The speciality had expected the NHS would be introduced as part of local
government with an expected expansion of the service provided by local
authorities. They were gravely disappointed. Seeds of antagonism between
LA services and the voluntary hospitals had been present for some time, but
public health, not for the first or last time, did not grasp political reality. It
grossly underestimated the power of concentrated lobbying by the BMA, the
Royal Colleges and the voluntary hospitals….
In 1965 the Seebohm Committee…was set up to consider the organisation and responsibilities of the local authority personal social services. Social workers were also anxious to emerge as a separate professional group not under public health control. Prof Jerry Morris was a member of this Committee. When it reported, in 1968, it recommended the establishment of a unified social service department in each major local authority. This was welcomed by the social work profession, although not unexpectedly it was criticised by the MOHs on the grounds that it perpetuated the division between health and welfare services and residential care for the elderly, mentally ill and handicapped and lost another opportunity for integration…
Another group anxious for its independence from public health supremacy at this time was environmental health…was embodied in the National
Health Service reorganisation Act 1973.
Medical education
…the Todd Commission stimulated the change in the
organisation, accreditation, and education in public health. From the service side this was led by Dr Wilfrid Harding, who was MOH of the London Borough of Camden, and a very senior figure in the Society of Medical Officers of Health. He was also a personal friend of Lord Rosenheim, President of the Royal College of Physicians and Professor of Medicine at University College, London. Change was also facilitated by the proposed changes in the structure of the NHS, which envisaged public health becoming part of the NHS. The roles that community medicine would play in the NHS was outlined in the Hunter report… Academics were almost all members of the Multidisciplinary Society of Social Medicine. Many had considerable renown, both nationally and internationally, e.g. cancer of the lung (Hill and Doll), chronic respiratory disease (Reid), coronary heart disease (Morris) and tuberculosis (Alice Stewart). But relations between academe and service were minimal. My department at St Thomas’s Hospital Medical School was one of the few to have working relations with service departments (Kent County Council, London Borough of Harrow). A major concern in the creation of the Faculty by the members of the Society for Social Medicine was the place of non-medical members of the Society in the proposed Faculty. Prof McKeown, of Birmingham, was particularly concerned with this. Membership of the Faculty. Unfortunately, because it was considered essential that we should be closely affiliated to the RCP, and because the majority of those affected by the initial negotiations were medically qualified, we were unable to achieve equal status for the medical and non-medical individuals. The provisional committee was able to ensure that its first honorary fellow was Austin Bradford Hill, a medical statistician. Achieving equivalence for non-medical graduates has taken many years, in spite of support for this from many members, particularly the academics. This difference between non-academics’ and academics’ in
attitude was, unfortunately, common in many matters at the beginning of the Faculty. It has, gradually, disappeared. Another major issue at the beginning was the equivalence of membership of the RCP and of the proposed Faculty. Morris and Harding, encouraged by Rosenheim, expected that members of the Faculty would be able to progress to Fellowship of the College, in the same way as members of the College. One of the senior physicians at St Thomas’s Hospital was John Harman (father of Harriet). We used to meet at lunch at the time of the negotiations for the creation of the Faculty. He was also Senior Censor of the RCP [Royal College of Physicians]. One day, at lunch, we discussed the formation of the Faculty. He was in favour, but was concerned. He emphasised that the College President, Lord Rosenheim, was giving false encouragement to Morris and Harding. There was no chance that the Fellows of the College would approve equivalence. He felt that Comitia (the ruling body of the College) would reject such a proposal….
Tenure of the President
Another piece of advice from Harman was the tenure of the President. At that time (in the early 70s) PRCP’s could serve for many annual terms (Presidents of the RCP are elected annually). Harman pointed out that it was difficult to get rid of a President, if he was elected annually, and gave examples how, in their later years, PRCPs, with long tenure, had outlived their “sell by date”. ..
Nomination of first President
Another interesting issue in the formation of the Faculty, not recorded by
Warren, was the nomination of the first President. In discussions between
many of those involved in the creation of the Faculty it had been considered
that the first President should be a highly prestigious figure, with an
international reputation. Richard Doll was considered an ideal candidate…
At the last meeting of the Provisional Board, before the
inaugural meeting in March 1972, Harding, the Chairman of the Provisional
Board, before the coffee break, announced that he had received a letter from
Doll withdrawing his candidature because of his workload as the new Regius
Professor of Medicine at Oxford University. This was received with great
consternation. Harding stated that we would discuss this after the coffee
break as we had very little time to make other arrangements.
Part 2 Faculty
Several of us (I believe it was George Forwell, Tom Anderson, Archie
Cochrane, Mike Heasman, Ron Lowe and Walter Holland) were extremely
concerned by this turn of events. We thought that as this matter had been
sprung on us at the last possible minute it was likely that the meeting would
propose Harding as its nominee, as he had done so much to promote the
creation of the Faculty and it would be difficult to oppose this nomination. We were very uncomfortable with this. Harding was not popular with academics or the Society for Social Medicine. The five of us discussed the situation for about one minute (as far as I can recollect) and turned to Archie Cochrane and unanimously urged him to agree that we should, immediately after the coffee break, and before Harding as Chairman could start a discussion, put forward Archie Cochrane’s name as the Provisional Board’s nominee for first President. Archie did require persuasion, but agreed that we could do this. Harding was surprised, but it was accepted by the meeting and Harding became our second President.
Membership of the Faculty
Since the Faculty was to be responsible for the professional standards of its
members it obviously had to set an appropriate examination. It was rapidly
agreed that the Faculty would follow in the footsteps of its parent Colleges
and would not accept exemption from this examination because candidates
had relevant academic qualifications such as MD or Ph.D. Initially, for a period of 2 years, registered medical practitioners practising in the UK and fulfilling the following conditions would be eligible for consideration by the Provisional Council of the Faculty for immediate election to membership without examination:
(1) Appropriate higher postgraduate qualification
(2) Five years’ experience in community medicine
(3) Promotion above the basic grade in the relevant field of community
medicine

At the inauguration in March 1972 900 members were elected, of whom 144
were elected as Fellows.
Clinical Responsibilities
In admitting aspirants to the Faculty under the “grandfather” clause two
groups posed problems. It was agreed that that the Faculty should be
concerned with population medicine rather than individual medicine. Part of the concerns were historical – as described many of the first MOHs had been, and were, general practitioners. It was, at the beginning, important that the Faculty should not be in competition with the RCGP, thus general practitioners with an interest in public health were not considered eligible. Clinical and Child Health Medical Officers posed particular problems. There were many exhaustive discussions about individual applicants from this group of practitioners. The question was always the balance between individual medical practice and population responsibility. There was little generation of goodwill between the proposed Faculty and this group.
Allied to this question was whether some academics with the label of Clinical Epidemiology, who often did have responsibility for individual patients, were eligible. Arguments were not as heated as with the Clinical Medical Officer
group. There was little argument of their contribution to Epidemiology rather
than patient care.
Occupational Medicine
It has often been asked why individuals from Occupational Medicine were not
included in the Faculty. Many on the Provisional Board wished them to be
included. Several very senior occupational physicians such as Prof Richard
Schilling, of the LSHTM, Dr PAB Raffle (CMO of London Transport), Dr D
Slattery (CMO of Rolls-Royce) and Prof C McDonald of the LSHTM were in
favour of this, but the great majority of those in occupational medicine
considered themselves to be clinicians rather than population doctors.
They were mostly general practitioners or hospital physicians with part-time responsibilities in occupational medicine. They wanted closer relations to the RCP rather than to one of its Faculties. Thus the Faculty of Occupational Medicine (FOM) was founded. We agreed to support this and established links between the Faculties for mutual endeavours.
Conclusion
Looking back on the foundation of the Faculty it is important to be aware that Public Health, after its 19th century achievements, has always had difficulties in establishing its role and esteem. The dramatic advances in treatment first of infective conditions and later of chronic conditions such as coronary heart disease have always, in the public mind, overshadowed the far more effective public health measures such as vaccination ,or the identification of the hazards of smoking and its prevention, lack of exercise and diet in the control of disease. It is unfortunate that we have never been able to make our subject more “sexy”. But, in addition, we have, as a group, always been concerned with inequalities and alleviation of poverty, which has diminished our appeal to many politicians and powerful financial, commercial and industrial interests.
THEY DID IT FOR THE POOR!

Doctor healed soldiers’ mental scars

PATRICK De Mare, who has died aged 92, was a psychotherapist whose work helped promote the use of group analysis. It was to become a key tool in his chosen field.
Dr De Mare was born in London in 1916. He wanted to be a doctor, and, after leaving St George’s Hospital medical school in 1941, was signed up in the Royal Army Medical Corps.
It was an interesting time to work as a psychiatrist: the First World War had seen ground-breaking work in diagnosing and treating trauma, and with battle casualties arriving home, Dr De Mare had plenty of patients to look after and study.
He served at Northfield Hospital in Birmingham with a group of colleagues who would all make their names in the field of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy after the war.
Northfield became the centre of a series of experiments led by eminent physicians Dr Sigmund Foulkes and Dr Wilfred Bion, which studied how to deal with trauma caused by war.
Dr De Mare was inspired by the experiments and was appointed consultant psychotherapist at St George’s Hospital.
In 1960, Wilfred Foulkes and Dr De Mare set up a private clinic, the Group-Analytic Practice. From this work sprung the Group Analytic Society and then, in 1971, the Institute of Group Analysis. He had moved from Fitzrovia to Redington Road, Hampstead, in the 1960s and away from his work he became known for his love of good food, music and hosting parties.
Dr De Mare was an accomplished accordion, banjo and ukelele player. He would play his accordion at bars and cafés in Hampstead. He also had a love of opera, and would play music at his practice in Baker Street.
Before he died, colleagues were collating his papers to publish in a collection, which will now be done posthumously.
He is survived by his wife Turid, two daughters, six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Bertie, Prince of Wales:

Would Uncle Harry’s nephew be good enough to return my documents please?

 

Uncle Harry’s Friends…

As I continue with the research for this blog, I find that when I revisit people and subjects about which I have previously blogged, I notice things of which I previously did not realise the significance. Such is my workload that I do not have time to revisit as many areas as I would like and I often only end up digging deeper after noticing something interesting by coincidence.

Earlier today I came across a reference to a dreadful old Top Doc who’s biography boasted that she was a former President of the Women’s Medical Federation. Many women’s professional associations are every bit as ruthless as the associations of the professional men who have outraged their female colleagues and those who hold senior office in the wimmin’s  organisations are often not quite what they would like people to believe they are.

The Medical Women’s Federation is the largest UK body of women doctors. The organisation is ‘dedicated to the advancement of the personal and professional development of women in medicine and to improving the health of women and their families in society’. It was founded in 1917, and its HQ is located in Tavistock Square, London, close to their friends the BMA.

The Medical Women’s Federation contained 190 members to begin with and the Federation launched a campaign to promote the role of women in the armed forces. The Federation collected testimonies and excellent records, but despite their petitioning and campaigning the War Office remained reluctant to grant women equal status. Other early focuses included venereal disease, prostitution and maternity and infant welfare. I have previously discussed on the blog how Lady Doctors of this generation were nearly always Posh Ladies who were telling very much more disadvantaged women how to look after their families and indeed themselves. The Lady Doctors viewed their less privileged patients in a rather different way than their social equals. That is not say that the Lady Doctors were entirely destructive, many were genuinely wishing to make a positive contribution, but they were not the creatures portrayed in TV dramas… People are often shocked to discover that Marie Stopes (Stopes was of course a botanist rather than a medical doctor, but she campaigned with Lady Doctors on birth control) was a eugenicist. A great many well educated people of the time were, including huge numbers of Top Docs. See previous posts. It was not unusual to still find practising Top Docs who were eugenicists in the 1960s and during that decade parents of disabled children were told by Lady Doctors as well as male doctors to put their children in an institution and forget about them. Those children were not treated well within those institutions either, they were indeed forgotten about by everyone, including the Top Doctors, Ladies as well as men.

In the 1920s, the Medical Women’s Federation was concerned about the number of organisations which restricted access to women, including medical schools, local authorities and other employers. Several medical schools had reverted to refusing women access and many organisations had marriage bars. An early campaign of the Federation included a 1918 protest against London County Council’s decision to return to a pre-war refusal to employ married women. A standing committee on Married Medical Women followed in 1921. By the 1930s, Stepney and the city of York had appointed women Medical Officers of Health. Stepney and York had not yet become exercised with regard to the organised abuse of children or vulnerable adults, the appalling conditions in long-stay institutions or the systematic discrimination against people in poverty by Top Docs and officials…

The Federation examined varied aspects of women’s health during the inter-war years. Issues included venereal disease, nutrition, lunacy law reform, the fitness of women to pilot commercial aeroplanes, the menopause and guidance on the hygiene of menstruation (a Federation pamphlet on this subject sold 10,000 copies in a single year). The advice was not dispensed in the way in which one would dispense guidance to an equal whom one respected. Another focus during this period was sexual health. In 1921, a subcommittee was appointed to discuss birth control. By 1931, a resolution was passed stating that instruction in the provision of birth control should be included in medical schools’ gynaecological syllabus. They also argued that the Birth Control Investigation Committee ought to include a woman gynaecologist. At the time there were plenty of Top Docs, both male and female, who did not believe that birth control should be available to anyone. Others believed that it should be compulsory, but only for disabled people or poor people.

The Federation achieved several successes in terms of incorporating their concerns into Gov’t policy during WW II. Women served on a number of medical boards and panels of consultants, though not on the Ministry of Labour’s staff. Lady Doctors played a full part in ordering reluctant men to join the Army, in denouncing some soldiers who were seriously ill as malingerers, in managing (or concealing) the fall-out from the war such as increased rates of STIs, sexual assaults and illegitimate births.

During these years, Lady Doctors also played a full part in confining some women to asylums if they become pregnant out of wedlock. Lady Doctors knew that women comprised the majority of patients who were lobotomised. There wasn’t any Campaigning on such matters.

The Federation lobbied Gov’t on issues including equal pay, the birth rate, nursery school provision and the employment of women in the Diplomatic Services. In 1944, the Goodenough Committee strongly advocated changes to medicine including mixed medical schools and called for open competition for all hospital appointments. Its criticism of discrimination against women in hospitals as going against public interest was significant in furthering the aims of the Federation. The Federation will not have lobbied Gov’t with regard to working class women and equal pay and open appointments for them. I don’t mind that the Federation campaigned for the interests of Lady Doctors, but I don’t think that we should believe that they were busy working on behalf of the oppressed.

From the end of WW II, the Federation played an increasingly influential role in British medicine due to its representation on other medical bodies. In 1946, the BMA appointed its first women members and throughout the 1950s and 60s Federation members worked with the BMA and the GMC as well as other official committees. The Medical Women’s Federation were totally at one with the arrogance, the abuses, the unfair practices, the failure to discipline dangerous doctors, the constant blackmailing of the Gov’ts during pay negotiations for senior docs and the gross exploitation of junior doctors. 

In addition to long-standing campaigns to address workplace or educational grievances of women medics, campaign issues during the decades following WW II included: nursery arrangements, care of the child under the NHS, pain in childbirth, the health of schoolgirls, family planning in the NHS, abortion, rape and sexual assault, assisted reproduction and child health. That there continued to be such dissatisfaction with regard to all of these areas by other campaigners and activists suggests that the Medical Women’s Federation was not very effective. Up in north Wales, just look at what Gwynne and Dafydd were doing. No-one heard a word from the Medical Women’s Federation.

In 1970, the organisation became eligible for charitable status and was registered on 16 November as the Medical Women’s Federation Grant Fund. It is now registered with the Charity Commission under its own name. In 2008 the organisation reported having 1,200 members.

The Top Doc who’s Inspirational Life Story drew my attention to the Medical Women’s Federation was Dr Beryl Corner, who served as President, 1968-69. Readers who have been following recent posts and the comments that follow those posts will know that I am currently making my way through the Diaries of Richard Crossman, Harold Wilson’s Secretary of State for Social Services, Nov 1968-June 1970. Dick Crossman presided over a new Gov’t Dept which had been created by merging the Ministry of Health with Social Services. What a lot of fun Dick Crossman’s Diaries are. Crossman’s time as Secretary of State spanned the years when Dafydd and Gwynne not only did exactly what they wanted no matter how many laws were broken and patients died, but the added extra during Crossman’s incumbency was John Allen’s acquisition of the first of his children’s homes in north Wales. It was on Crossman’s watch that John Allen and Dafydd went into business big-time; the conditions for their start-up were particularly conducive because the child molester George Thomas had been appointed Secretary of State for Wales and just as that happened, responsibility for the NHS and Social Services in Wales were transferred to the Welsh Office!

Richard Crossman was the Labour MP for Coventry East, 1945-74. Coventry was ruled by Dafydd’s partners-in-crime and kids in care from Coventry were sent to kids homes in north Wales. When Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass concealed the criminality of Dafydd and the gang in 1989 during the ‘investigation’ of my complaint, Bluglass was assisted by Dr Colin Berry, a Top Doctor from Walsgrave Hospital, Coventry. See post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’. The production line for child sex workers in north Wales really took off after 1974, by which time Crossman had died. He returned to the backbenches in 1970 when Labour lost power and between 1970 and 1972, Crossman edited the ‘New Statesman’. Crossman was a prolific writer but he never wrote about what Dafydd and Gwynne were getting up to or about the enormous incestuous Dept which was the DHSS, in which every Minister, adviser and Civil Service mandarin was a either a mate of Dafydd’s or part of the sex abuse ring which Dafydd et al were facilitating.

Crossman was a graduate of New College, Oxford, a favourite recruiting ground for the security services at the time (see post ‘A Study In Tyranny’) and while at Oxford he had numerous gay affairs. Crossman remained at Oxford after graduation as a Fellow and taught there, before lecturing for the WEA. At the outbreak of WW II, Crossman joined the Political Warfare Executive under Robert Bruce Lockheart, where he headed the German Section. Crossman produced anti-Nazi propaganda broadcasts for Radio of the European Revolution, set up by the SOE.

Crossman eventually became Assistant Chief of the Psychological Warfare Division of SHAEF.

Crossman was probably trying to induce ruptured organs in the enemy by excessive laughter. Unless of course you were a 13 year old being gang raped in Bryn Estyn, but er they weren’t The Enemy were they?? So what was the rationale Dafydd? Or did you and Gwynne think that kids in care were undercover KGB agents?

In April 1945, Crossman was one of the first British officers to enter the former Dachau concentration camp. Crossman became a key participant in the annual Konigswinter Conference, bringing together British and German legislators, academics and opinion formers from 1950 onwards. The conferences were credited with helping to heal bad memories created by the war. Obviously one wouldn’t want the bad memories to remain because it might be difficult to persuade the population to support another war. Denis Healey attended the conference, as did Robin Day. Healey later worked hard to protect Dafydd et al and Robin Day was Ronnie Waterhouse’s closest friend.

Theresa’s Gov’t is going to bring paedophiles to justice! There’ll be no hiding place for them! The police can assure the Victims that they’ll be treated sympathetically. Professor Alexis Jay, a Professor of Social Work who was responsible for the Orkney Satanic Abuse Panic (see eg. post ‘The Scottish Play’), is Chairing the IICSA, that’s how serious the state is about this. Just don’t mention the War or the fact that Dafydd et al received 100% backing from the security services…

When Beryl was President of the Medical Women’s Federation, Crossman was Secretary of State for the DHSS and Sir Kenneth Robinson, Dafydd’s mate, had finished his stint as Health Minister. Dafydd’s mate Lord David Ennals was a Minister under Crossman. Dafydd’s other mate Professor Brian Abel-Smith was knocking around in the DHSS as well and the services of Abel-Smith’s pal Prof Richard Titmuss were also being called upon. Babs Castle was first Secretary of State and Crossman got on very well with Babs and consulted her about many matters. Abel-Smith, Ennals and Babs spent years propping up Dafydd and the gang, as did Crossman while he was around. They knew damn well that Dafydd et al were running a sex abuse ring and everything suggests that Abel-Smith, Ennals and Crossman were part of the wider Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts.

Before she died in 2007, Beryl was the subject of much romancing with regard to media accounts of her career. Beryl’s wiki entry supplies the information that Beryl Corner (1910–2007) ‘specialised in the care and treatment of children and pioneered neonatology. She excelled as a medical student at the London School of Medicine for Women but then had trouble finding a post at institutions like Great Ormond Street Hospital because she was a woman.’

Ah the doctors they were discriminatory!

They let Jimmy Savile into GOSH but not Beryl, so ‘Beryl established a career at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and, for several years, was the only paediatrician in South West England. She was admitted to the British Paediatrics Association in 1945. Corner established a unit to care for newborn babies. With a budget of £100 she was able to halve mortality rates. In 1948 she was the consultant paediatrician who oversaw the first caesarian birth of four quads born at Bristol.’

The Torygraph’s obituary for Beryl fills in the picture further:

Beryl Corner, who died on March 4 aged 96, was the first paediatrician in the south-west of England and one of the British founders of neonatology, the care of newborn babies; she was also the last survivor of a group of women paediatricians whose achievements helped to break down barriers to the advancement of women in medicine.

In the early part of the 20th century children were cared for by adult physicians, and it was not until after the end of the Second World War that paediatrics really began to develop as a separate speciality. Beryl Corner therefore faced resistance from physicians who saw no need for paediatricians; from obstetricians who thought they were able to look after newborns and tried to ban her from the maternity wards; and from the male doctors who controlled hospital appointments and were hostile to the admittance of women to training posts, let alone senior positions. She met these challenges with her exceptional intellectual gifts, unbounded energy, an iron will and a passionate devotion to the care of babies and children.

The real story was that Beryl was not accepted and indeed completely obstructed by what were no doubt appalling old gits and had to put up with this crap and a career that was at the time seen as third rate.

The daughter of a local government officer and his Scottish wife, Beryl Dorothy Corner was born on December 9 1910. Her family had lived in Bristol for four generations, and she was educated at Redland High School for Girls, where she won the form prize every year. She went on to be a prize-winning medical student at the London School of Medicine for Women (Royal Free), qualifying in 1934 and then sailing through her higher medical exams two years later.

In the 1930s, medical students were not allowed to fail so badly that they were removed from the course. They were allowed to retake until they were waved through to qualify as Top Docs. So we can actually deduce nothing about Beryl’s academic ability from this account. Academic standards in medicine then were very different to the standards which have prevailed for the last 30 years.

 

Beryl’s interest in paediatrics was kindled during her years as a student, when she accompanied ward rounds at Great Ormond Street Hospital and was taught by Sir Robert Hutchison.

Although Sir Robert Hutchison refused to employ Beryl after she qualified.

After house officer posts at the Royal Free, the realistic option for her – as a woman doctor – was to obtain a post in general practice or in public health;

The Women’s Medical Federation had not managed to break down many barriers.

and she was about to join a general practice in Bristol when a friend of the family, a surgeon, suggested that she apply for a vacant post as resident medical officer at the Bristol Children’s Hospital.

Beryl’s career was therefore given a boost by that tried and tested method used by Top Doctors: help from an influential Top Doctor friend.

As a young doctor at the hospital she encountered malnutrition, rickets, anaemia, tuberculosis, polio, diphtheria and high death rates among newborn babies; then there were the effects of child poverty and lack of sanitation, the devastating mortality from gastroentertitis and the toll taken by childhood infections in the pre-antibiotic era and before the development of modern vaccines.

Top Docs at the time did recognise how many of their patients were ill because of poverty but that didn’t stop a moralistic orientation towards the patients and a view on the part of many Top Docs that the patients were responsible for their own poverty.

Beryl Corner recognised the importance of meticulous nursing care, good nutrition and the prevention of cross-infection.

Beryl will have been taught this when she was winning prizes at medical school. She was working in the 1930s not the 1980s. They knew about Germs.

She also became convinced of the need for doctors who specialised in the care of children, rather than physicians who dropped in to do rounds.

Beryl may have been genuinely convinced of that, but Beryl was a Doc who was being marginalised and prevented from undertaking work that she was really keen to do. Top Docs are remarkably good at creating opportunities for themselves under such circumstances. Or indeed simply rewriting history decades later.

This brought her into conflict with physicians who saw no need for a paediatrician and with a professor of medicine who seemed to resent her presence, telling her that there was no future in paediatrics.

They will have taken the view that if Beryl was any good – ie. a man – she would have bagged a Proper Job within the structure that was in place.

Seeking further training in paediatrics, Beryl Corner found that she could not apply to Great Ormond Street Hospital, since it had a policy of not employing women house physicians. She applied for a post as registrar at the Westminster Children’s Hospital, only to be told in a letter from Donald Paterson, a consultant and secretary of the British Paediatric Association, that – although she was the outstanding candidate – they could not appoint her because she was a woman.

None of this was Beryl’s fault. It does however give the lie to tales about Beryl’s genius and iron will Overcoming. She couldn’t Overcome, they wouldn’t let her. She had to pander to them; the other option would have been to tell them to take a running jump and use her education in another field where perhaps she could start breaking the walls down. Beryl didn’t do that…

Eventually she obtained a post at the Brompton Hospital in London before returning to Bristol, where she was appointed honorary (unpaid) physician to the children’s outpatients in 1937; in this way she became one of the first full-time paediatricians in Britain, surviving with money she earned from teaching nurses and some private practice.

So the Top Docs valued Beryl so little that she had to undertake a voluntary job. Beryl might have loved doing that and she might have done an excellent job, but Beryl had not become ‘one of the first full-time paediatricians in Britain’. They wouldn’t let her work as a paediatrician. This is no sleight on Beryl, but the fairy story about Beryl overcoming this dreadful establishment needs blowing out of the water. Beryl would have done better to have made it quite clear just how entrenched and meat-headed this lot were and made it clear that people should have told them to stick it, rather than pandering to them and pretending that the Women’s Medical Federation Changed Things.

Determined to improve the care of newborn babies, Beryl Corner ventured on to the maternity wards at Bristol. Told by the obstetricians that her presence was not welcome, she simply ignored them,

That is not true. They will have allowed her there for some reason, no matter how grudgingly. One cannot simply walk onto a ward if one has no role on that ward and stay there treating someone else’s patients if one is told to leave. One can’t do that now and one certainly couldn’t do it then. This tale about Beryl is nonsense.

and was instrumental in improving the medical and nursing care of babies, leading to a reduction in perinatal mortality.

Then she must have been given some sort of official role. Even Dafydd couldn’t stroll onto the the maternity wards at Bristol and treat other Top Docs’ baby patients without their permission, I’ve never heard such nonsense. The most appalling things do go on in hospitals, but they happen because senior members of staff allow them to happen. Dafydd was ‘holding ward rounds’ at 3 am in the women’s dorms because Sir Kenneth Robinson allowed someone to give him a job as a consultant.

In 1942 she was appointed consultant paediatrician, and went on to set up the special care baby unit at Southmead Hospital;

She hadn’t just been putting on a white coat and pretending then, she did have some sort of role and was then promoted. That will have happened because like psychiatry, paediatrics was a very low status speciality and that’s why Beryl was allowed to do it, but not at GOSH, only at Southmead.

 it opened in 1946 and gained an international reputation, providing the example for many other such units in Britain.

It probably didn’t, GOSH will have had the big reputation in the field and they won’t have tolerated usurping from the upstart whom they refused to employ.

She was also a founder member of the Neonatal Society and became an adviser in neonatology to the World Health Organisation.

Neonatology was a new discipline so it won’t have been difficult to have been a founder member of their Society. Furthermore in Beryl’s day, there was not the equipment available to sustain the lives of very premature babies, so Beryl won’t have been doing the impressive hi-tech medicine that neonatologists do today. Beryl will have been taking care of premature babies as best as she could yet all but the strongest, late gestation babies would have died. No-one would have expected otherwise.

As well as meticulous care, Southmead offered the detection and treatment of haemolytic disease in the newborn; incubator care for premature infants; good nutrition; the prevention of cross-infection; a breast milk bank; and outreach health visitors.

Even the North Wales Hospital Denbigh offered ‘meticulous care’. The very worst of Top Docs and Angels only offer the very best at all times. Other things on offer from Beryl were standard in big hospitals.

In 1948 Beryl Corner came to the attention of a wider public when she cared for the Good quads – the first in Britain to be born by caesarean section and survive.

But Beryl didn’t deliver the quads. The exciting bit was done by other Docs, the Docs who had elbowed Beryl out of the way for her entire career.

Between 1942 and 1947 she was the only paediatrician in south-west England, offering her services to help with paediatric problems from Swindon in the east, to the Scilly Isles in the west and Tewkesbury to the north.

I have some knowledge of the state of paediatric nursing in Taunton in the 1950s. It wasn’t anything to boast about and there were more than a few horrors… So the roving Beryl wasn’t doing rocket science.

She initiated one of Britain’s first courses in paediatric medicine for medical students and published many research papers in her career, as well as a widely-read book on prematurity.

A ‘course’ for medical students would have been a small number of lectures, if that. Top Docs of Beryl’s vintage didn’t publish ‘many’ research papers, even Docs holding Chairs didn’t publish prolifically at that time, it was a very different culture.

In 1945 she and four other distinguished women paediatricians were finally allowed to become members of the British Paediatric Association.

So although Beryl was the ‘first full time paediatrician’ in Britain, a few others were also knocking around and they were members of the British Paediatrics Association before Beryl.

Beryl Corner made a tactical decision not to present herself as a feminist;

Very few Lady Doctors did in Beryl’s day. Medicine is and was then a very conservative profession and Simone de Beauvoir would never have been able to tolerate it.

but she was always supportive of women doctors who came to her for help with problems of discrimination.

It will have been a matter of Ladies Having a Heart-to-Heart, discrimination was still entrenched at the time and Beryl and the Women’s Medical Federation didn’t make many inroads.

Short of stature, she travelled around Bristol in a large white Mercedes

Ah she was there for the Poor! This was Bristol, there won’t have been many Mercs zooming about the place.

which could seem driverless until it passed by at speed and her distinctive profile could be seen behind the wheel. She was sociable and charming, loyal and supportive to her extended family, and helpful to young paediatricians who showed commitment; but she did not hesitate to show disapproval at work if she thought her high standards were not met by her staff.

The brutalised Beryl went on to kick others in the chops.

She could be quick to anger, but such displays were never personal and they soon passed.

What did I say…

Most of those who worked for her came to regard her with affection and respect.

Their careers would have stopped had they said anything else.

Towards the end of her life Beryl Corner became something of a television celebrity with the screening of several programmes about her life in medicine. In her 95th year she was appointed OBE.

Beryl died in 2007. Towards the end of her life, Baker and Brown had started publishing about the north Wales mental health services of which a key component was the corrupt GP Dr D.G.E. Wood, who qualified at BRISTOL MEDICAL SCHOOL and who’s father was a Top Doctor FROM BRISTOL.

Paedophiles in distress, paedophiles in distress, D.G.E. Wood calling, D.G.E. Wood calling…

Brown’s mum was found dead in her bed in 2005, some 40 miles south of BRISTOL. Brown’s dad had previously been found dead during the Waterhouse Inquiry at his home in BRISTOL.

She was an accomplished amateur musician, made contributions to the study of medical history, and became “paediatrician” to Bristol Zoo, where she was an innovator in the care of sick newborn primates. On at least one occasion she admitted a premature chimpanzee to the neonatal unit at the hospital along with other babies in incubators.

Wood et al have definitely been at work here. I expect that Beryl did the silly voices that Johnny Morris used to do as well and gave the elephants a hose down. ‘Animal Magic’ was filmed at Bristol Zoo, or at least the bits that weren’t filmed in the studio were. Johnny Morris was a man of far right and mean spirited views, when he wasn’t doing the children’s programmes he used to bang on about wanting to bring back hanging.

Something even weirder about Johnny Morris – who came from Newport in south Wales and worked at the BBC through the Paedophile Years – was the timing and nature of his death. A diabetic, Morris collapsed at his home in Hungerford, Berkshire in March 1999 when he was about to star in a new animal series, Wild Thing, on ITV. Admitted to the Princess Margaret Hospital, Swindon for tests, Morris was discharged to a nursing home in the Devizes and Marlborough district, where he died on 6 May 1999. His wife, Eileen, had died 10 years previously; he had two stepsons. Morris bequeathed his house to his co-host on Animal Magic, Terry Nutkins, a large sum of cash to his housekeeper, Rita Offer and smaller sums to his gardener and his builder but he left nothing to his stepsons, his step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren, possibly due to a failed business partnership which had cost him £500,000.

The Waterhouse Report was published in Feb 2000. Sir Peter Morrison’s family seat was in Wiltshire. Morrison was found dead in his house in July 1995, the month that Dafydd ‘retired’. Morrison’s brother Charles was the Tory MP for Devizes, 1964-92. The Morrison family pretty much ruled Wiltshire and had done for many years. They owned substantial estates, sat on Wiltshire County Council and occupied other influential positions…

It is quite easy to ensure that someone with diabetes dies if you are a Top Doc and you don’t do the right thing. Johnny Morris wasn’t young but he obviously was considered to be in no danger of pegging out imminently because he was about to star in a new TV series…

 

Beryl Corner was a committed Christian and an active member of Christ Church, Clifton. She was unmarried.

Clifton is the posh bit of Bristol, it houses the Top Docs and Bristol University.

The Ground Breaking Beryl:

The BBC News in June 1998, midway through the Waterhouse Inquiry and while the gang were busy trying to get me banged up in a secure institution, also shone the spotlight on Beryl in a feature on the terrible state of children’s care in the NHS in the 1930s, before Beryl revolutionised it. The BBC stated:

Post-war Britain concentrated its medicinal effort on new born babies; Britain’s second premature baby unit was set up at Bristol’s Southmead hospital, under the auspices of a leading paediatrician, Dr Beryl Corner. With a measly budget of £100 – enough for just six cots – Dr Corner and her team halved mortality rates for the babies in their care within a year of being established.

Which makes me wonder what the hospital had been doing to the babies before Beryl’s measly £100, was Dafydd employed?

Dr Corner also won fame and accolades for her profession when she successfully assisted in the delivery of the world’s first quadruplets to be born by Caesarean; the birth of the Good sisters became an international news story.

 

The births were regarded as a triumph for intensive care, especially since the fourth baby was not breathing when she was delivered. We had no resuscitation equipment then such as we know it now. But I had a sucker that I sucked with a rubber tube down the baby’s throat, and after about four or five minutes the baby cried and breathed; and she lived’ says Dr Corner.

OK, Beryl probably saved the baby’s life, that is a worthy action, but she did that in basically the way that it would have been done for decades previously. I’m not underestimating the value of Beryl, just trying to draw attention to the overblown account of Beryl changing the landscape of neonatology and paediatrics at that time. The BBC feature itself admitted that the factor which was most important in reducing the child mortality rate was the 1939 availability of the first anti-bacterial drugs, Sulphonamides, which were effective in cases of pneumonia. In 1944, Penicillin was used in cases of meningitis and in 1947, Streptomycin was available to use in cases of TB. Beryl had bugger all to do with the development of any of these drugs. In 1960, a vaccination to protect against Polio was introduced from the United States. That wasn’t down to Beryl either.

The BBC report starred two other Top Docs of Beryl’s vintage, Dr Leslie Temple and Dr Harold Everley Jones. Harold was ‘one of Britain’s first paediatricians’, who qualified in 1934, so Harold was one of those who gave Beryl such a hard time.

[ image: Harold Everley Jones: houses were hovels]

Harold remembered that ‘Poverty, poor diet and bad living conditions lay at the root of much childhood illness.’
The dosh was spent on Beryl rather than improved housing…

I stood in a house to which I was called and was amazed to see the wallpaper moving due to the bugs underneath. Many of these houses were little more better than hovels.” 

Beryl’s house in Clifton wasn’t heaving with bugs.

Harold Witcomb Everley Jones died in 2001 and his obituary appears on the Royal College of Physicians ‘Lines of the Fellows’ online:

Harold, known to his friends as ‘E J’, was a consultant paediatrician in Wolverhampton, West Bromwich and Dudley. He was born in London, where his father was a consulting engineer. His mother was a musician. He was educated at Winchester House, King’s School, Canterbury, and then St Thomas’s Hospital Medical School.

No bugs under the wallpaper for Harold. Trained at Tommy’s, the most elite of the London hospitals…

After junior appointments at St Thomas’s and at East Ham Memorial Hospital, he was made a consultant paediatrician to Victoria Hospital for Children, Tite Street, Chelsea, in 1938. He joined the Royal Army Medical Corps in 1939 and served in the Middle East, Normandy, Belgium and Germany… Following demobilization he decided to settle in the Midlands. In 1947, before the start of the NHS, he single handedly set up a children’s service, involving Bridgnorth, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Walsall and West Bromwich.

Where the embryonic organised abuse existed which flourished under Dafydd’s partners in the West Midlands, Professor Robert Bluglass and others from the 1960s onwards. See eg. posts ‘The Mrs Mills Experience’ and ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’.

In 1947 he was appointed a clinical lecturer in paediatrics at the University of Birmingham. In 1961, the university appointed him area director of postgraduate education. From 1968 to 1969 he was president of the Midland Paediatric Society.

Er – Bluglass et al were in business by then and by the 1970s kids in care in Birmingham were being sent to children’s homes in north Wales.

He kept fit by cycling. As a student he had played rugby for St Thomas’s. A bachelor, he retired to north Wales.

Well there’s a surprise.

He died of cardiac failure.

Don’t say the gang bumped Harold off as well lest he blabbed. Another obituary of Harold’s mentioned that after retirement he maintained close contact with his former colleagues in the West Midlands. The ones who sent all those kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales.

 

While I was searching for information about Harold, I came across two other Pioneering Lady Doctors who’s biographies caught my attention.

Dr Marcia Hall:

An external file that holds a picture, illustration, etc. Object name is hallm.f1.jpg

Marcia Hall, who died in 2000, worked as a paediatrician at Great Ormond Street Hospital, 1941-69. During those years, Great Ormond Street colluded with the abuse of children which was why Savile found life so good there. Audrey Callaghan was Chair of the Governors of GOSH during the late 1960s/70s and then spent many more years raising funds for GOSH. Jim Callaghan used his position as PM to assist. See eg. post ‘Cry The Beloved Country’.

Marcia qualified from Cambridge/King’s College Hospital in 1934, so she somehow became a paediatrician while being a Lady Doctor in a way that Beryl was unable to do so.

Marcia’s father died when she was young and she was supported at Cambridge by an uncle who would not at first allow her to study medicine. However, after her first year, he relented and she went on to become one of the earliest female clinical students at King’s College Hospital. She elected to join the firm of Sam Hall because he was the least fierce of the teachers.

The Top Docs who would soon be Playing Their Part In Nye’s NHS would all have been fierce.

She subsequently married him.

And nearly all of them assessed their female colleagues in terms of their shagability rather than their clinical skills. While that is an expected consequence of many interactions between colleagues, the Top Docs take the phenomenon to extremes.

During the war she was seconded as a dermatologist to the Canadian Army Hospital in Cuckfield. This post included genitourinary medicine, and her lack of any more than a rudimentary knowledge of dermatology combined with the wild nature of the clientele made this an interesting experience.

I’d like to hear more about this, but we won’t.

Marcia’s particular interest was in chest medicine, especially tuberculosis. She travelled to Scandinavia to study the new BCG vaccine and administered it to the children of the Royal Family. She always had a great interest in country life and especially riding, and retired to Brendon in north Devon where she and her husband did much to organise the building of the village hall.

A Doc to the Royals! Would it have been Carlo, Anne, Andrew and Edward to whom Marcia administered the BCG? It is likely that Marcia knew Wilfred and Dannie Abse, who both  knew Dafydd et al and facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring. They were of a similar vintage to Marcia, trained at King’s College Hospital and Dannie spent his career as a chest physician, specialising in TB. See post ‘O Jones, O Jones’.

Devon was Jeremy Thorpe country. Norman Scott lived in north Devon as well as Jeremy and the locals were fully aware of what Mr Thrope was doing. It was a Top Doctor in north Devon who was involved in ensuring that letters incriminating Mr Thrope which were in Norman’s possession were sold and burnt by someone who wanted to protect Mr Thrope. See post ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’. Top Doctors are very good at knowing what is going on in their localities and they retain close relationships with other Top Doctors after retirement. Marcia never felt the need to comment while mud was being thrown at Norman by the media.

A descendant of Elizabeth Fry and the daughter of a clergyman, she retained a staunch Christian faith throughout her long life.

So Marcia almost certainly disapproved of Norman’s Lifestyle. Whereas Mr Thrope was a married man, the most intelligent, the prettiest politician, who could have become Prime Minister of this country or even President Of The World… Furthermore, Mr Thrope was married to Miriam, the ex-wife of Lilibet’s cousin, who stood next to Mr Thrope throughout his long and unnecessary ordeal…

Predeceased by her husband, [Marcia] leaves three children and seven grandchildren.

They’ll all defend the reputation of one of the first Lady Doctors.

 

Another Pioneering Lady Doctor of Beryl/Marcia’s generation was Margaret Elizabeth Lace (nee Morgan). Dr Lace was born in Dowlais, south Wales and qualified from Bristol in 1938. She was a consultant with the Family Planning Association.

After medical and surgical posts at Bristol Royal Infirmary, she became the general practitioner in Porthcawl during the war years. She then returned to Bristol and worked part time running antenatal and infant welfare clinics.

Dr Lace will have known the Top Docs in south Wales who were colluding with George Thomas’s sex offending as well as with the organised abuse in the region, which had got off the ground even by then. Dr Lace would also have known, or at least known of, the Abse family, because so many of the extended family were Top Doctors

Here she came face to face with the welfare and social problems confronting large families. Birth control became an important issue,

Dr Lace will have been of the opinion that birth control was a good thing for Poor People and might well have taken the view that it should be compulsory for them, but a choice for people of her own social class.

and Betty had further training under the auspices of the Family Planning Association. One of the family planning pioneers in Bristol, she became a member of the FPA Council and a recognised teacher in family planning at Bristol University. She also worked for the Bristol and South West Regional Blood Transfusion Service. Following retirement in 1984, she maintained an active interest in the affairs of her old school.

Betty will have known D.G.E. Wood’s Top Doc father and very probably Wood himself. Previous posts have explained how in the 1970s, the FPA were well aware that ‘family planning’ work involved prescribing the contraceptive pill to girls under the age of consent who were in care being sexually exploited or forced into sex work. The Top Docs dishing out the ‘family planning’ to those girls knew what the situation was. Previous posts have named some of those holding office with the FPA who were part of Dafydd’s network.

She celebrated her diamond wedding anniversary last August. She leaves a husband, Edward; two children; and six grandchildren.

They’ll all be ready to remember Betty’s Pioneering Career During which she Helped and some of them may well be Top Docs themselves. 

 

Dame Albertine Louise Winner (4 March 1907 – 13 May 1988) was a Top Doctor who was President of the Medical Women’s Federation, 1971-72. Winner served in the Dept of Health as its first female Deputy Chief Medical Officer, 1947-67. Here’s Albertine in her horn-rimmed glasses looking Shocked and Disgusted:

A photograph of Albertine Winner

Albertine Winner was born in London in 1907 and her early education was at the Francis Holland School at Clarence Gate in London. Francis Holland remained a popular option for the daughters of The Posh who helped Dafydd et al generations after Albertine. Ronnie Waterhouse ensured that his daughters got through the doors. The Headmistress, 1965-74, while Ronnie’s daughters were there, was Heather Brigstocke, the mum of the comedian Marcus Brigstocke. Heather Brigstocke had excellent knowledge of posh schools in London and she knew some of the people facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Heather received a peerage in 1990, the year in which Dafydd and the gang repeatedly perjured themselves in the High Court in an attempt to have me imprisoned (see post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’). Baroness Brigstocke sat as a Tory peer. Her first husband was a civil servant and her second husband was a Law Lord. In 2004, both Heather Brigstocke and her assistant were killed in Athens by a speeding driver. See previous posts.

Like Ben Elton, the offspring of another of Dafydd’s Little Helpers (see previous posts), Marcus is on the left and makes this clear during his gigs, but his loyalties became clear when he performed at a fund-raising gig for St David’s Hospice, Llandudno, an institution which was established by and is run by Dafydd’s gang, in response to yet another distress flare. See previous posts.

Albertine Winner gained a degree in Physiology from UCL, then studied medicine at UCH. After qualifying, Winner worked at the Elizabeth Garratt Anderson Hospital and the Mothers’ Hospital in Clapton. During WW II, she was promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel in the RAMC.  Winner also served as the consultant to the Women’s Services.

After the end of the war and on the eve of the emergence of the NHS, Winner joined the Dept of Health in 1947 as its first female Deputy Chief Medical Officer, a position in which she served for the next 20 years. So like Uncle Harry, Albertine was there at the very dawn of the NHS to see Nye’s vision put into practice with the Poor Being Helped. By the time that Albertine had stepped down as Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Gwynne had been happily lobotomising away for years and Dafydd was ready to go into business with John Allen and start up the conveyor belt for the production of child sex workers on a big scale. Sir Kenneth Robinson was Minister of Health and was being advised by Abel-Smith…

Sir George Godber was Deputy Chief Medical Officer, 1950-60. and Chief Medical Officer, 1960-73. Godber was yet another person who knew what was going on at the North Wales Hospital. When I wrote my earlier post ‘The Creme de la Creme’ about Godber, I presumed that it was him who was virtually solely responsible for protecting Dafydd and Gwynne, not realising that everyone at the top of the medical establishment and Gov’t was on board with them. Godber was  one of the team who planned the NHS, so like the rest of them he was untouchable and nothing could be said which might suggest that something dreadful had been permitted, let alone built into the NHS.

Listen to the sound of silence Poster | hoon_from_the_moon ...

Godber studied at New College, Oxford, so was highly likely to have been working for the security services. He was partly inspired to pursue public health by his Warden, the historian H.A.L. Fisher, who had been Lloyd George’s Education Secretary. Another of Godber’s mentors was a young New College don Richard Crossman… Godber did his clinical training at The London Hospital and qualified in 1933. He will have known of the organised abuse and the severe poverty in the area served by The London Hospital and dear old Godber just transferred it all over into the foundations of the NHS and left well alone. Godber worked in Birmingham during WW II, so he’ll have got to know many of those we know and love there as well.

Godber’s responsibilities weren’t just to the DHSS. His role as CMO also spanned the Home Office and the Dept of Education and Science and thus included responsibility for approved schools, remand centres, high security hospitals, prisons and other educational institutions. Godber knew about Bryn Estyn, Risley Remand Centre, Ashworth, Broadmoor and Rampton and the other total institutions over which Dafydd and the paedophiles had control, in which vulnerable people, including children, were battered, raped and not infrequently killed. It is a mark of how rotten the NHS is that Godber was still being described as a ‘saint’ until his death in 2009, having reached over 100 yrs old. He was in good nick and active until almost the very end. The great man and his reputation were a big umbrella under which many people sheltered.

As with Godber, Albertine’s responsibilities as Deputy CMO will have included approved schools, secure hospitals, prisons etc. That Lady Doctor did a great job of endorsing a truly appalling regime established by and run for the benefit of the worst sort of male sex offenders imaginable.

In 1967, Albertine Winner became a Dame and was also appointed the Linacre Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, a post she held until 1978. While serving in that position, Winner played a key role in developing postgraduate medical training posts for the Joint Committee on Higher Medical Training.

If Albertine became Dame Albertine, it suggests that Dafydd and Gwynne must have found themselves in the slurry again in 1967-68. Well there had been that business in 1966 with Dafydd summoning a fleet of coaches to the North Wales Hospital, loading a crowd of institutionalised, incredibly vulnerable patients onto them and placing the patients ‘in the community’ in B&Bs on the north Wales coast. The patients were subsequently found starving and covered in lice. Some will have died as well but no-one dared admit that, not even ‘The Times’, which reported the scandal. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Dafydd didn’t bother to warn anyone that he was going to do this, even the patients themselves. 1966.

In 1966, Dafydd was a leading figure in MIND; Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson was the Minister of Health; another mate of Dafydd’s, Professor Brian Abel-Smith who had designed the flawed economic basis of the NHS, was still telling Ministers what to do; Godber was CMO. Lord Cledwyn, the MP for Anglesey and a close friend of the Windbag’s parents-in-law who was another big fan of Dafydd (see previous posts), was Secretary of State for Wales and George Thomas was his Minister. Of course no-one was going to give a bugger about Dafydd’s excesses, even when they’d reached the pages of the Thunderer, although the Thunderer took no interest in the patients who had been lobotomised because they’d refused to shag Dafydd’s rich and influential mates.

I need to introduce here yet another man in a High Place who was happy to allow Dafydd and Gwynne to pursue their life of crime unhindered: Sir Arnold France, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Health, 1964-68, the very same years that Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth was Minister of Health. From 1968, Arnold France served as Chairman of the Board of the Inland Revenue until his retirement in 1973. In 1973, France was Chairman of the Central Board of Finance of the Church of England. There is very little information about Sir Arnold available on the internet; I suspect that somebody who is aware of this blog knew what was coming and has cleansed the world of Arnold’s biographical details, although I do know that Sir Arnold died in 1998. In 1965 Walter Bird photographed Arnold’s for the National Portrait Gallery. Walter made, most appropriately, a ‘bromide print’.

I think that I might have met Sir Arnold’s son and I suspect that Arnold’s son may have been responsible for ensuring that nothing about his dad remains on the internet. Previous posts have described how Professor Duncan Tanner, an historian at Bangor University, died suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 51 yrs at the hands of Ysbyty Gwynedd in Feb 2010, after a minor operation judged to be low risk. Low risk if it’s not being performed at Ysbyty Gwynedd that is. Duncan was a Welsh Labour historian, he was the best in that field and he knew damn well which politicians were involved with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd and Gwynne’s branch of it. I was working with Duncan and I very much appreciated his help, but he was a dark horse and although he never let slip that he knew who was involved, I saw clues and I realised that he had seen clues that I knew something about it as well. The School of History at Bangor employed a number of academics with direct links to those who concealed the criminality of Dafydd’s gang: Professor Andrew Edwards was a policeman in north Wales while the police refused to investigate complaints; Dr Dinah Evans was married to Ron Evans, the crooked lawyer employed by Gwynedd County Council who orchestrated the whole cover-up at the north Wales level; and Nia Griffiths’s dad was a judge who colluded. I have no idea whether Duncan was Of The Paedophiles’ Friends himself, but when a memorial service was held for Duncan at Bangor University, Frances Jones, one of the crooked lawyers who assisted those we know and love, turned up in her capacity as a friend of Duncan. See post ‘The Turn Of The Screw’.

I have described previously how at Duncan’s memorial service, Frances Jones and others insulted Merfyn Jones, the VC, who had been under attack from the paedophiles’ friends since 2004 because he, his late wife and friend had spilt their pints. See previous posts eg. ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’. Like Duncan, Merfyn held a Chair in the School of History.

One person who spoke at Duncan’s memorial service was unknown to us at Bangor because he was a face from Duncan’s past, a friend of Duncan’s from Duncan’s days as a PhD student. This man explained that although he was a Tory and was doing a PhD on Conservative political history and Duncan was a Labour supporter from south Wales doing a PhD on Welsh Labour history, they became good friends. This man was a civil servant; he was a Dr France. I cannot remember his first name, but he talked about his daughter, Lizzie, who was at a posh girl’s school and had impressed the class by telling them that she knew Duncan Tanner, after Duncan’s name appeared in some material that the history class were using.

Would Dr France, Lizzie’s dad, like to make himself known? The Top Doctors have been killing people Dr France because your dad allowed the DHSS to run an elite paedophile ring for years and years. They almost certainly killed Duncan as well, they are still wiping out the witnesses after all this time. If you’re not careful Dr France you won’t be safe in any hospital yourself even if you Go Private. This is a very, very big problem and you should not be concealing evidence, no matter how much loyalty you feel towards your father. I can’t imagine that you would be very happy if Lizzie had her career wrecked and her friends murdered after she refused to have sex with two disgusting old men who were part of the gang who had supplied Richard Crossman and his mates with fresh meat ten years previously would you?

I received an e mail telling me that the man who spoke at Duncan’s memorial service Knows… I wasn’t given his first name, my correspondent probably presumed that I would remember it.

Duncan did his PhD at UCL; I think that his friend Dr France did his PhD at UCL as well. UCL was and is crawling with Top Docs who were involved in the Westminster Paedophile Ring…

After Albertine Winner retired from the medical profession in 1967, Cicely Saunders asked Albertine Winner for financial assistance in establishing the first modern hospice. See previous posts for information re Dame Cicely Saunders and the hospice movement. Winner was initially apprehensive but ‘soon saw its importance’ and helped Saunders establish St Christopher’s Hospice in Sydenham, London, the first hospice in the UK. Albertine supervised its construction and served as its Deputy Medical Director when it opened in 1967. Winner later became its Chairman in 1973 and President in 1985.

Dame Albertine died on 13 May 1988 in London, aged 81.

The Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online of course paid tribute to Albertine:

In her early medical career she worked with and was much influenced by Sir Thomas Lewis and Sir Francis Walshe. Walshe gave her an abiding interest in neurology, which was finally of great help in developing palliative treatment of motor neurone disease at St Christopher’s Hospice when she returned to clinical medicine as a final end to her varied and most distinguished career.

she joined the RAMC in 1940, becoming lieutenant colonel and later consultant to the Women’s Services. This experience revealed her liking and aptitude for administration, and after a brief return to the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital she joined the Ministry of Health. Here she kept her intense interest in patients’ welfare, particularly in the chronic sick.

So she knew exactly how badly neglected and abused patients in long stay institutions like the North Wales Hospital Denbigh were. How did the Ely Hospital Scandal erupt in 1969 with the Dame, Sir George Godber, Sir Arnold France etc all keeping an eye on things?

She became deputy chief medical officer, the first woman to hold that office.

At this time, Sir Max (later Lord) Rosenheim persuaded her to become the College’s Linacre Fellow. She was not quite the first person to occupy this post… but Albertine was the first to serve for any length of time – eleven years -and she certainly set the standard for her successors. As, again, she was the first woman to serve as a College officer, she might be regarded as a feminist ice-breaker; she did break ice, not as a feminist but simply as an extremely competent and reliable administrator who succeeded in getting to the top in what was at the time very much a man’s world.

Let’s stop even being surprised that Lady Doctors of that time were not declaring themselves to be feminists. They were, simply, Posh Women, who had usually attended academic girls schools and often came from medical families. They were some of the most conservative, gender bound people in the UK. It was indeed a man’s world, it was specifically a Posh Man’s world and the Lady Doctors who got to the top did it by playing the posh man’s game by the posh man’s rules which very often involved concealing wrongdoing to make life easy for the posh men. That is what being a ‘competent and reliable administrator’ means in medicine. ‘They’re really good at hiding the shit’. It is that neanderthal. There were a very small number of Lady Doctors who took the men on in field such as obs and gynae and surgery; they succeeded because they were very, very hard women as well as having a good dose of poshness. I will discuss such an example later in this post…

As Linacre fellow, Albertine was responsible for developing the training posts that were to be recognized by the newly-formed JCHMT. She visited most of these posts herself until their number grew too great. She then appointed visiting teams to carry out the task, holding herself in reserve to lean on recalcitrant colleagues who were reluctant to accept the College’s recommendations.

So Albertine told other Top Docs to whom they were going to give those jobs. Nepotism and dirty deals were endemic in medicine long after Albertine’s death, so we can assume that Albertine herself dished out jobs on that basis.

She became DBE in 1967 as she retired, but this was but the beginning of yet another career as deputy medical director of St Christopher’s Hospice.

St Christopher’s will certainly have benefited from that DBE.

This interest began in 1961 when she heard of the plans for St Christopher’s, the first research and teaching hospice, and joined in a ward round at St Joseph’s Hospice. Her clinical acumen and personal interest in people in need was at once aroused

The clinical acumen and personal interest that had given the green light to Dafydd, Gwynne, Ely, etc

and she carried on a quiet campaign of advice and support for the Hospice from then on.

Albertine was busy behind the scenes, calling in favours…

It was typical of her that she should go on a refresher course in medicine before returning to clinical duties. As she said: ‘The moment I began to examine a patient my hands took over and I was back.’

No Top Doc ever admits in public to ‘oh bugger, I’d forgotten…I’m not up to it anymore.’ They do admit to this in private…

Albertine worked at St Christopher’s part-time from 1967-73, helping to establish both its clinical and administrative standards and fill the rest of her time with many other interests. She was on the council of the Disabled Living Foundation;

Oh God. Not that I’m surprised, the Top Docs who have been responsible for the misery and suffering are a must on the organisations and charidees which are now going to Change It because Something Must Be Done.

was one of a group of physicians who travelled to assess Issel’s controversial cancer clinic in Bavaria,

They always have a bit of advice for Johnny Foreigner as well. No-one tells Johnny Foreigner that pockets of that over which the White Man – and White Lady – has presided are as bad as the services provided by Johnny Foreigner.

and was an active member of the Medical Women’s Federation and its president in 1971. She retained her interest in the expansion of hospice work as part of a generally accepted clinical challenge. She was fond of describing it as ‘…just good medicine in a special setting.’

The special setting being one which is 100% run by paedophiles’ friends, not just substantially run by paedophiles’ friends.

She became chairman of St Christopher’s in 1973 and was elected president in 1985, and was also much involved in founding the North London Hospice, with its special Jewish interest and inter-faith connexions. Brought up in a Jewish home, she joined the Christian foundation of St Christopher’s as a ‘sympathetic agnostic’. In later years she returned to the faith of her fathers, fitting in as well as ever in the Hospice ‘community of the unlike’.

Previous posts and comments have discussed how Dafydd et al had many members of the Jewish community protecting them. Not because ‘Jews are child abusers’, but because Jewish people hold medicine and law in high esteem, as well as academia, the civil service etc. A lot of Jewish people are working in these fields and of course in finance, business and the media, as well as in politics. So abusers can have a party if they use their Jewish friends and relatives. An elite paedophile ring couldn’t make much headway if the only people assisting it were labourers or people on benefits… George Thomas had many friendships within the Jewish community in south Wales, although Thomas was a leader in the Methodist Church. The reason why Thomas liked Jewish people was that his pals the Abse family were running a paedophile/trafficking ring and the Abses were a high profile Jewish family full of doctors and lawyers. See post ‘O Jones, O Jones’.

People genuinely interested in inter-faith links discuss the ideological and cultural similarities between different faiths, I have published such material myself. If you’re running a huge international trafficking ring and you want your mycelia penetrating absolutely everywhere, you’ll use the same discourse. Don’t blame the Jews, or the Methodists, or the Catholics or the C of E, or even the Muslims, it’s the network of corrupt professional people who are the problem and the Top Docs are the biggest problem of all, because they’re the ones who ensure that the grass doesn’t get the pain killers or life-saving treatment. Or is declared mad.

Dame Albertine’s interests were as wide as her medical career. A perceptive observer of art, she built up a valuable collection of Japanese prints, and she was an enthusiastic opera lover. She played tennis for the university, and retained her interest in sport and travel.

Mycelia absolutely everywhere.

To some she appeared formidable, but to all she was kind, giving the best in sensitive and utterly reliable moral support.

Like so many, the old cow hid her lovely nature so effectively.

A superlatively good clinician,

She had spent most of her career as an administrator. Top Docs take the piss out of other Top Docs who became administrators, even administrators at the highest levels, because they are usually Docs who for whatever reason cannot do clinical work. I will expand on this further shortly.

she finally became a cooperative and unfailingly courteous patient, much loved by all who had the care of her…

The Top Docs are killing their own now… The Dame knew that if she wasn’t a co-operative and courteous patient, somehow the pain relief would not be sufficient and ooh we didn’t realise that the Dame needed to be taken to the loo or ‘dying luv? don’t make us laugh…’

This is no way to run a healthcare service. Most patients ARE nice people, but even if they are retired Top Doctors who have run a paedophile ring, they should not be denied good care. Yet we now have a situation in which Angels and Top Docs judge as to who is morally worthy of care and support when they are ill or elderly. The judgements are not sound, but they shouldn’t be made at all…

The Dame’s obituary for the Royal College of Physicians was written by Dame Cicely Saunders – who else? – and Sir Raymond Hoffenberg.

 

Dame Rosemary Rue was another Caring Lady Doctor who served as President of the Medical Women’s Federation, 1982-83. By that time, Mary Wynch had begun litigation against Dafydd and the gang and Dafydd’s mate Robert Bluglass was rewriting the Mental Health Act to reassure everyone that It Could Never Happen Again. Tony and Sadie Francis were in the process of being recruited to work in north Wales, along with some other Nice Young Doctors and Ysbyty Gwynedd, a Brand New Hospital for Gwynedd, was being built.

Ah you can’t complain, most of them really are good aren’t they!

As Alexei Sayle might have quipped as part of his famous ‘on-stage rants’ in the 1980s, ‘I’ve just been lobotomised by a sex offender, still, Mustn’t Grumble’.

Elsie Rosemary Laurence was born in 1928 in Hutton, Essex and moved with her family to London in 1933. She was evacuated during the Blitz to stay with relatives in Devon where she contracted TB and peritonitis. While she was convalescing, Rosemary decided on a career in medicine, entering the all-woman Royal Free Medical School in London in 1945. In 1950 Rosemary married Roger Rue, a pilot instructor of Belgian descent in the RAF. When Rosemary told the medical school Dean that she was changing her name, she was told that she could not stay at the Royal Free Medical School if she was married. I discussed in my post ‘Thought For The Day’ the revolutionary Lady Doctors and founders of the Royal Free who read Cosmo and went in hot pursuit of their G spots. Rosemary was instead accepted at Oxford University, qualifying in 1951 after taking the University of London exams.

Rosemary encountered many serious problems after qualifying, so many and so serious that it is extraordinary that Rosemary was ever able to follow any sort of career in medicine at all, let alone one which resulted in her becoming Dame Rosemary. I will discuss Rosemary’s bizarre early career in detail shortly.

In 1960, Rosemary she was named Assistant County Medical Officer for Hertfordshire and worked as a part-time paediatrician in Watford. In the 1980s, I became aware that Top Doctors who became administrators, even administrators at senior levels, were always Top Doctors who could not practice medicine. Gwynne the lobotomist was eventually given an administrative role before somebody employed him as a people trafficker in UCNW, because he was so fucking bad with patients. Gwynne’s obituary described him as a ‘competent and thoughtful administrator’. Just like Dame Albertine! Records were forged by Gwynne to conceal wrongdoing… Once Gwynne was sidelined into the role of Lord Haw-Haw, Dafydd was given responsibility for the patients, which says everything that needs to be said about Gwynne if Dafydd was the preferable option.

Top Docs running Health Authorities were all for some reason unable to work as clinicians, usually because they were hopeless and known to be. Perhaps in Rosemary’s case she was forced into admin because of the rampant bigotry towards her, which would have been even even greater because of her disability than her gender.

It was other Top Docs who refused to accept disabled people as equals. One of the Top Docs at the C&A Hospital in the 1950s and 60s, like Rosemary, had been crippled by polio. He could walk, but did so with a pronounced limp. His son told me that when on a visit to the C&A, the then Health Minister Enoch Powell demanded to know what ‘that cripple’ was doing working in the hospital. I can well believe that Enoch Powell did say that, there was massive hostility towards disabled people at that time, even if the disability was just a ‘gammy leg’ and the medical establishment, including Uncle Harry’s NHS, shared that bigotry.

Now for irony after irony. The disabled Top Doc at the C&A was one of those colluding with patient abuse and the trafficking ring. After the gang declared war on Merfyn, the VC of Bangor University in 2004, the son of that disabled Top Doc was by then a retired member of staff from Bangor University. He was part of the contingent who were busy trying to overthrow Merfyn. While he worked at Bangor University, the Top Doc’s son had served as the AUT rep. He had defended some worthy people, but he had also fought the corner of some members of the gang who should never have been allowed to remain in their posts. This AUT rep was not as dim as the gwerin, he will have known what they were up to. He also maintained that Carlo was bisexual and he should know, what with his dad having facilitated the gang who supplied Carlo’s er friends with sex workers.

Enoch Powell had declared his intention to close down the North Wales Hospital and every asylum in Britain after visiting the place in 1961 because he was so appalled at what he saw. Powell returned to London and made his famous ‘Water Towers’ speech in which he described the oppressive nature of the asylums and the waste of human life within and explained that he would be ordering an asylum closure programme. It never happened. After that speech, Powell never ever returned to the subject of asylums. According to the archivist responsible for the Powell papers, after the Water Towers speech, there are no further mentions of asylums or psychiatry in Powell’s papers.

Powell’s intended asylum closure was part of the wider ‘Hospital Plan’ which was laid before Parliament on 23rd January 1962. This also proposed the development of 90 new hospitals from scratch and the upgrading of 134. The Hospital Plan went out for consultation with the Top Docs and as usual, it was soon realised that it would cost vastly more to implement than at first thought. In 1966 the plan was revised as the Hospital Programme and parts of it went ahead. The part that did not go ahead was the closure of the asylums. But then someone back in the early 1960s when Powell was still Minister of Health told Powell to drop that subject and never return to it.

By the time that the plan had been revised as the Hospital Programme, Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson had become Minister of Health. Powell served as Minister of Health, July 1960-Oct 1063, under Harold Macmillan, during the Profumo Affair. Previous posts have discussed the role of Dafydd and his predecessors in the Profumo Affair.

Powell was succeeded as Minister of Health by Anthony Barber, Oct 1963-64, under Alec Douglas-Home. Barber later served as Chairman of the Conservative Party, 1967-70 and then as Chancellor of the Exchequer, 1970-74, under Heath. Barber had worked for the security services during WW II and was a barrister, a member of Inner Temple. Other members of Inner Temple include Lord Michael Havers, whom it has now been admitted blocked the prosecution of members of the Westminster Paedophile Ring when Havers was Attorney General (see previous posts); Michael Havers’s sister, Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, who’s talents were put to good use when she concealed the havoc that Dafydd’s partners-in-crime caused in Cleveland in 1987 (see previous posts, including ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’); Sir Cecil Havers, the High Court judge and father of Michael and Elizabeth.

Anthony Barber left front line politics in Oct 1974 and received a peerage in January 1975 as Baron Barber. Anthony Barber served as Chairman of Standard Chartered Bank, 1974-87, where future PM John Major was his personal assistant. John Major who was the PM who oversaw the enormous cover-up that was the Waterhouse Inquiry. It was also while John Major was PM that Mary Wynch was finally ruined by Michael Howard at the Home Office, although Mary had proven and won her case. See previous posts.

In 1987, Barber was appointed to be a Deputy Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, part of Jimmy Savile’s crime empire. Barber was also a director of BP, 1979-88. He visited  Nelson Mandela in prison, and was a member of the Franks Committee that investigated the Falklands War (see previous posts). In 1991, Lord Barber became chair of the RAF Benevolent Association’s appeal for the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, which raised £26 million. Barber was one of those who benefited as a result of Macmillan’s ‘Knight of the Long Knives’ in July 1962.

Barber served as the Tory MP for Doncaster, 1951-64 and then for Altrincham and Sale, 1965-74. Doncaster was on the territory of Jimmy Savile Central and Altrincham and Sale was on the north Wales/Cheshire turf of Dafydd’s gang. The bent barrister George Carman QC, who was assisting Dafydd’s gang and Savile, as well as the wider Westminster Paedophile Ring, lived in the Altrincham and Sale area until he moved to London in 1979 after successfully defending Mr Thrope at the Old Bailey. Some of the bent police officers and other corrupt professional people involved with the gang lived in the same area. See eg. posts ‘Top of the Cops’ and ‘A Stalker’s Network’. Barber was Chairman of Redfearn National Glass, 1967-70, with which his wife Jean’s family was connected. Barber’s brothers Noel was a well-known journalist and novelist and his brother Kenneth became Secretary of Midland Bank.

David Wyn Williams, Chairman of the North Wales Business Club, who died a few days ago, was formerly the Regional Director of the Midland Bank in north Wales. I was told for years that Dafydd’s gang had solicitors and bank managers on board and put people out of business who crossed their path. Some five years ago I saw documents in relation to one person who had spilt the paedophiles’ pints who, after years of running a successful business, found themselves in dire straits. This person knew that at least one bank manager had broken the law in his dealings with him, so he took advantage of a commercial lawyer friend who was visiting from Australia. The lawyer friend spent a few hours going through documentation and could only draw one conclusion: that the wrongdoing was so great that everybody involved was on board with it. Those involved were Gwynedd County Council, three different firms of solicitors in Gwynedd and HSBC, formerly known as the Midland Bank.

 

Anthony Barber died in Suffolk in 2005. Suffolk and Essex were the location of a long-standing abuse ring with which Rab Butler colluded. It involved Dr John W. Paulley and his wife Deirdre. The Hervey family seat is in Suffolk and the notorious John Jermyn Hervey aka Lord Bristol who died youngish after a life of class A drugs, rent boys and HIV spent most of his life in Suffolk. John’s brother Nicholas died young while in the care of Top Docs; Nicholas was very different to his brother but he knew names and details. Before John Allen opened his first children’s home in north Wales, he lived in Suffolk. See post ‘The Vermin Club’.

Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson succeeded Anthony Barber as Minister of Health, Oct 1964-Nov 1968. Robinson served as President of the National Association for Mental Health (MIND) during the 1960s/early 70s, although all mention of Robinson has now disappeared from MIND’s website. Robinson succeeded Rab Butler as President of MIND, Rab having been appointed the first President in 1946. The Chair of MIND, 1963-69, was Lord Balniel and the Vice-Chair was Lady Adrian, 1962-66. There was then a vacancy for the position of Vice-Chair until 1967, when Dr David Clark took up the post and remained until 1975. The Chief Exec of MIND, 1951-64, was Mary Applebey. Lady Juliet Bingley was Chair, 1978-84. Tessa Jowell was Deputy Director of MIND, during the 1970s, at the time when paedophiles’ rights activists were giving sessions at MIND conferences. All of these people knew what Dafydd and Gwynne, as well as their colleagues at St George’s, the Maudsley and other hospitals who were running linked gangs were doing. Rab Butler went back such a long way that he colluded with the organised abuse that gave rise to Dafydd et al. I have blogged in detail in previous posts about Rab, the Bingleys and Tessa Jowell, as well as Dafydd’s mate Professor Hugh Freeman who served as Vice-Chair of MIND when Dafydd and Tony Francis were In Need, but I still have more digging to do re  the Ancients such as Lord Balniel, Lady Adrian etc. Of course Dafydd’s pal Lord David Ennals held a number of senior roles at MIND throughout the 1970s and 80s…

 

Powell made the Water Towers speech to the National Association for Mental Health in March 1961, when Dafydd’s mates were well on the way to colonising MIND completely. No wonder Powell dropped the subject and never returned to it. Powell would have had good reason to do so when it was explained to him that MIND was a cover for organised abuse, including the Westminster Paedophile Ring, because Powell has been named as someone who was abusing children/young people. Powell was the maverick MP for Wolverhampton South West, 1950-74, who famously spent time raising his own concerns and those of his constituents re immigration. Immigration of non-white people to be specific. He did not mention the organised abuse of kids and vulnerable people in his constituency, which was carried out by partners of Dafydd’s gang. Powell was notorious for declaring war on his former colleagues in the Tory Party over Europe – he was an anti-European – and he left the Tory Party in 1974. He served as the Ulster Unionist MP for South Down, 1974-87. Powell knew all about the elite paedophile ring at Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast but didn’t mention it, although he’d have finished off all of his political enemies if he had…

So why did Enoch Powell of Suspected Gay Paedophilia, who served as an MP in N Ireland, not breathe a word about the paedophile ring at Kincora which was alleged to involve Sir Anthony Blunt, Lord Louis Mountbatten, senior members of the British Armed Forces as well as Whitehall and Westminster figures, when by doing so he could have landed such an effective blow on so many of those whom he loathed and wanted to see out of office?

Powell in his garden in Belgravia, London, in 1986. Just down the road from Sir Peter Morrison’s house. In the heart of the swathes of Belgravia owned by the late Duke of Westminster, Carlo’s close friend. The Duke owned estates in Cheshire to which boys from Bryn Estyn were taken for ‘work experience’ after which they refused to return. Carlo’s friend the 6th Duke had spent his early years on the family estate in N Ireland, which was the main residence of the 5th Duke, who served as an MP for a constituency in N Ireland. See previous posts. Some months ago I received an e mail informing me that as a child, Sir Peter Morrison had been used sexually by the 5th Duke. The e mail contained information suggesting that the writer had considerable knowledge of the Duke’s family and the Morrisons.
In August 1979 Lord Mountbatten was blown up and killed while at his holiday home in Sligo. It was for years attributed to the IRA targeting a member of the British Royal Family for simply being Royal. More recently there have been allegations that Mountbatten was murdered because of his involvement in the paedophile ring based at Kincora and the murder may not have been the work of the IRA. The involvement of rogue members of the security services are under suspicion. They were fighting like ferrets in a sack, what with some helping Dafydd in their capacity as the Secretary of State for the DHSS while dining on gulls eggs and claret at Brooks’ club, others working hard to get rid of Harold Wilson and eventually replace him with Thatch, some of them planning to overthrow the Gov’t if Wedgie-Benn ever became PM and some suspected of killing people who were abusing children.

NB: C or M or Dickwit. There was only one flaw with your Cunning Plan. As the whole bloody lot of them were too frightened to challenge the Top Doctors who were running the abuse ring, it didn’t really matter whom you installed as PM did it?

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

Powell lost his seat to the Social Democratic and Labour Party in 1987 but remained involved in politics. He supported Thatch’s anti-European stance and on 16 May 1994, Powell spoke at the Bruges Group. Professor Richard Howarth of UCNW, the agricultural economist who worked in the most dysfunctional, incompetent Dept of Agriculture of any UK university but nonetheless became an adviser to Thatcher after Brown and I refused to drop our complaints about Gwynne the lobotomist et al, was involved with the Bruges Group. See previous posts for info re Richard Howarth and his mates Richard Body MP and Professor Terry Thomas.

Enoch Powell suffered from Parkinsons in his final years, but he remained active, engaged and writing. He was hospitalised several times as a result of a succession of falls. A few hours after his final admission to hospital, he asked where his lunch was. On being told that he was being fed intravenously, he remarked, “I don’t call that much of a lunch”. These were his last recorded words. On 8 February 1998 Powell died aged 85 at the King Edward VII Hospital for Officers in Westminster. His study of the Gospel of John remained unfinished.

Powell died two months after Ronnie Waterhouse finished hearing the evidence from former kids in care in north Wales who were denounced as liars by everyone. Ronnie began writing his Report at the beginning of 1998.

The Chair of the Trustees of the King Edward VII Hospital for Officers was/is Lord Simon Glenarthur. (The hospital is now known as King Edward VII’s Hospital Sister Agnes.) Glenarthur was/is a Director of the MDU, the MDU which supplied Dafydd and the Drs Francis with legal advice with regard to obtaining High Court injunctions against me and then seeking to have me imprisoned for allegedly breaching those injunctions although the MDU knew that Dafydd and the Drs Francis were perjuring themselves, forging documents and planting evidence. Simon Glenarthur was a junior Minister in the Dept of Health, June 1983-March 1985, when havoc reigned in north Wales and the security services came after Brown, me and our friends. It was Glenarthur who was responsible for carrying out Thatch’s orders to purchase blood products from the US for NHS use, although the British Gov’t had been told by the Top Docs that these products were infected with Hep B. They were also infected with HIV and thousands of NHS patients became infected as a result, many of whom have now died. Glenarthur might not have understood the consequences of using those blood products, but the Top Docs did and they did not warn the public. They just ensured that they and their families didn’t receive the infected blood products.

Now don’t you worry dear, oops sorry, I mean Mr Powell, we’ll look after you.

  • Death with syringe stock vector. Image of syringe, medical ...

Glenarthur is a Military man who has served as/is the Director of numerous companies and who has held many senior roles in the British Army. I expect rather more of people who hold high rank in the British Army, Simon Glenarthur is a disgrace. See previous posts for the many pies in which Glenarthur’s fingers are to be found and for the bottomless pit of slurry over which he presided at the Dept of Health. After joining in the death and destruction there, Glenarthur was a junior Minister in the Home Office, 27 March 1984- 10 September 1986, while the Home Office colluded with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s gang.

The 6th Duke of Westminster was also a man who held high rank in the British Army and who knew Glenarthur.

Lord Simon, if you know anything about the unexpected and untimely death of Brown’s dad, Col Keith Brown, during the Waterhouse Inquiry, with whom you might well have rubbed noses what with Col Brown having met some pretty disgusting people at events such as Buck House garden parties and TA dos, please let us know. Brown thinks it was the Top Docs wot dun it again, the only way that they could have got Keith would be via the tablets that he was taking for minor conditions. For God’s sake Glenarthur, Col Brown was on an IRA hit list in the 1970s, he hobnobbed with Chief Constables etc and His Own bumped him off.

 

To return to the Pioneering Lady Doctor, Rosemary Rue. Her territory extended to Hertfordshire, which was where Lady Juliet Bingley and her family who did so many favours for Dafydd and the gang lived.

In 1965, Rue was offered the job of Senior Assistant Medical Officer for the Oxford region, running that region’s Health Authority. In the early 1960s ‘new money was allocated by the government to rebuild the crumbling medical system’ in the UK. Dr Rue ‘ensured that Oxford got a fair share’. I very much doubt that Oxford was ever in any danger of not getting a fair share of the dosh from Sir Kenneth Robinson’s Hospital Programme, particularly as Oxford was the location of, you’ve guessed it, organised abuse. The abuse of children in care at Oxford was concealed by senior social worker Barbara Kahan and her husband psychiatrist Dr Vladimir Kahan. Babs was part of a network of people who colluded with abuse and at least two of Babs’s colleagues, Louis Minister and Peter Righton, were abusing children themselves. Babs had been Minster’s manager and between 1975 and 1984, Minster worked for Richmond County Council, becoming Director of Social Services. See previous posts. Peter Righton was a social work academic who worked at Keele University and at institutions in Malta, who used his work to advocate sexual relationships between adults and children. See previous posts. Babs was appointed as a Gov’t children’s social work adviser to Sir Keith Joseph, Secretary of State for the DHSS under Heath and Babs remained as a Gov’t adviser as well as an adviser to children’s charidees etc until into the 1990s. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’.

My post ‘R.I.P. Julia Grant And Many More’ supplied details of the network of paedophiles’ friends who were related to and friends/colleagues of Dr Cynthia Phillips, who ended her own distinguished career as the Principal Medical Officer for Oxfordshire Health Authority. Cynthia was the daughter of Lennox Broster, one of the Top Docs who was instrumental in developing a new speciality for the gang’s branch at Charing Cross Hospital, that of Expertise In Transgender Matters. Broster and his pals were completely insensitive to the distress of patients ill at ease with their gender, but they were really brilliant at selling gender reassignment surgery to patients from across the globe who had a lot of dosh… I haven’t yet accessed the dates of Cynthia’s occupancy of the Top Job in Oxfordshire, but from what I have read, she was probably in that post during the 1970s.  She will have definitely known Rosemary Rue.

In 1972 Rosemary Rue became one of the founders of the Faculty of Community Health (now the Faculty of Public Health), which brought together academic bodies such as the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, community health Top Docs and organisations such as the Public Health Laboratory Services (PHLS). She served as the PHLS Regional Medical Officer from 1973–84, and Regional General Manager from 1984−88.

The PHLS while Rosemary was a Senior Manager for them was in a dreadful state and the general public were never ever told. There was a severe shortage of staff because the pay was so bad – the pay really was bad, much worse than that of Angels – and mistakes were common because chaos reigned. The staff who could bear to stay in the service on a long term basis were members of unions who’s reps were using their knowledge of the wrongdoing of the Top Doctors to exert political muscle and build their own careers. Ken Livingston was a rep of one of the unions involved. The PHLS was in a very sorry state in places like London, Oxford, Cambridge and Bristol; elsewhere it was ludicrous. As ever within the NHS, unions and cadres of staff all blackmailed and bullied each other and rational people just left those jobs when it became clear that this was far more than a little local difficulty.

In her last few years, Dame Rosemary continued to take an active interest in health service matters, despite both breast and colon cancer. She died, aged 76, at her cottage in Stanton St John, Oxfordshire in Dec 2004, aged 76. She was survived by her two sons.

The obituary supplied for Dame Rosemary’s on the Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online also tells us that:

Rosemary Rue had an enormous influence on medicine and the health service, both within the Oxford region (Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire) and nationally.

Rosemary will have known about the neglectful, lying psychiatrists at St Andrew’s Hospital, Northampton, whom many people believe were responsible for a serious miscarriage of justice in 1985 (see post ‘Family Annihilation’).

She stayed at the ORHB when it became the Oxford Regional Health Authority (ORHA) in the mid 1970s, and became regional medical officer. Subsequently, in 1983, she was appointed as its first regional general manager when these posts were created following the Griffiths report on NHS management (1983). She was the only woman and the only doctor to be appointed to one of these 14 powerful positions.

The Griffiths Report led to Thatcher’s ‘reforming’ of the NHS. It simply involved creating a new cadre of highly paid powerful managers, many of whom were the deeply corrupt not very able pen pushers who had previously been called administrators. Their job titles changed, their pay rocketed and the civil war between them and the Top Docs reached new heights. The two groups had never liked each other, but giving Alun Davies and Keith Thomson in Gwynedd huge salaries and grandiose job titles was absolutely not a solution to the criminality of Dafydd and the Docs… See previous posts. If Rosemary Rue was given one of those senior managers jobs that Thatch created in the wake of the Griffiths Report, Rue was definitely being used to cover up an Everest of crap in Oxfordshire. Rue was not the ‘only woman and only doctor’ to bag one of those jobs because she was as Marvellous as the Queen Mother, it was because she was a useful idiot and a bit of good PR, ooh a Lady Doctor too!

Amid the genocide in north Wales, some Nice Young Doctors arrived from Oxfordshire. One was Richard Tranter – his wife Siobhan Tranter, a Lovely Young Nurse arrived with him – and another was Dr Mike Jackson, a clinical psychologist. Richard and Mike Jackson weren’t insane like Dafydd or utterly stupid like so many of the Top Docs in north Wales, but after a few years it became obvious to a number of people, including me, that Richard and Mike were just using their greater ability and nicer manners to conceal the wrongdoing, the abuse and neglect and research fraud even more effectively. Richard scarpered for New Zealand a few years ago when he heard that I had called lawyers in, acquired my records and would be publishing as soon as I could. Previous posts have provided details of Richard, Siobhan and Mike’s activities, including that time when Richard did all that he could to persuade me to take a combination of drugs which he knew were neurotoxic and would have resulted in serious damage to my health and possibly death…

Richard and Mike didn’t know this but there was a student at Bangor University some 10 years ago who’s brother was a clin psy in Oxfordshire and he told her that there was an abuse ring in operation there, it had been in existence a long time and that because all of the ‘professionals’ were concealing it, he was going to resign.

There’s not only the reputation of the Dreaming Spires to consider, but what about these Oxfordshire politicians?

Lord Patten of Barnes is quite used to bombs exploding around him wherever he goes, but can he explain why Oxford University gave a home to Professor Mark Williams after Williams invented Mindfulness when he worked with Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and why Lady Lavender Patten of Barnes was Patron of Mark Williams’s Oxford Mindfulness Centre while her husband was Chancellor of the University employing Mark Williams?

 

Rosemary Rue’s most enduring legacy is almost certainly the changes she brought about which enabled women doctors to develop careers at the same time as having a family. In the Oxford region she set up a variety of part-time training schemes and ‘retainer arrangements’ which allowed women to take maternity leave without sacrificing all hope of returning to a career path.

Bugger the abuse and neglect of patients, it’s our own careers that are important.

In order to do this she had to persuade and cajole local consultants and the medical Royal Colleges to support her.

They won’t have supported her out of the kindness of heir hearts or because she won them over with arguments based on fairness and equity. There will have been dirty deals behind the scenes which will have involved agreeing to remain silent about malpractice and wrongdoing and certain people gaining promotion, people who might even have been working in institutions hundreds of miles away from Rosemary…

These schemes soon gained wider attention, and eventually they became standard practice all over the country. In 1953 Rosemary Rue had lost her job as a doctor simply for being married.

Yes, it was disgusting, but it didn’t result in Rosemary challenging the worst injustices.

Forty years later, not only were such attitudes and practices confined to the pages of history, but largely thanks to Rosemary Rue’s efforts, women medical graduates could chose to pursue any branch of medicine and know that they would not be at a disadvantage.

Try telling that to women in surgery, even today. They are still discriminated against, this is not an issue that has been hyped up by Millie Tants, women have a hard time in surgery. Rosemary also ignored the shocking levels of racism which are endemic in medicine and as for class discrimination, that is so common that it is accepted as part of life.

Rosemary Rue was elected president of the Medical Women’s Federation in 1982.

Another of her legacies is the development of health services for Milton Keynes. Milton Keynes was designated as a ‘new town’ in 1967 and over the next 25 years grew from a green field site to a town with a population of some 200,000. Rosemary Rue’s vision was pivotal throughout this period in planning and implementing appropriate health services for the new town, as well as balancing those in the surrounding areas.

Brown worked in Milton Keynes for a few years. Not only did Brown spot the usual horrors in the health and care services in Milton Keynes but one of his colleagues at Milton Keynes was shafted by one Professor Fergus Lowe, while they were both working on a project for Unilever. Fungus was based at Bangor University for his entire career and he built his empire on overthrowing Dafydd’s influence in the School of Psychology and then blackmailing everyone whom Fungus knew had colluded with Dafydd and the gang. Including some big wigs at Unilever. See eg. ‘Feet In Chains’.

Those who were lucky enough to work with Rosemary will always be grateful for the experience. She had a quiet determination and shrewd political judgement, and usually managed to achieve her objectives.

Dame Rosemary would have been able to explain why so many rather mediocre people became Professors at Oxford University after discovering what Dafydd et al were doing.

The Lord Patten of Barnes
Chris Patten -2008-10-31- (cropped).jpg

She had a broad knowledge of health services, and was equally at home discussing the latest surgical technology or the provision of community mental health services for the elderly.

I’d have liked Rosemary to have shown me that ‘provision’, because in most areas of the UK, that provision consisted of the elderly mentally ill sitting in a room in their own urine being ignored for hours on end. Which was what had happened to them before Dame Rosemary revolutionised healthcare when they were housed in places like Ely Hospital that caused public outrage in 1969 (see post ‘All The Ingredients Of A Scandal’).

The NHS itself expected mental health patients to sit in their own urine. How do I know? Because in the 1990s, every chair for patients in the day centre at the Hergest Unit was one of those chairs coated in very thick brightly coloured plastic to withstand industrial incontinence. My mate with a sense of humour thought that it was hysterical; we used to do our fieldwork in Ysbyty Gwynedd and point out all the surreal things to each other, including the Chairs For The Incontinent. There wasn’t anyone who was incontinent attending the day centre because it wasn’t for elderly people, but we got the Incontinence Chairs anyway. Furthermore, the day centre was part of the Hergest ‘flagship’ Unit, completed in 1993. So a supply of Incontinence Chairs was prioritised. My friend and I were sitting on the Incontinence Chairs laughing at the concept when my friend first saw Dr David Healy. Dr Healy arrived in Gwynedd in about 1991, but my friend didn’t experience life as an Empowered Service User until 1993. David Healy was a Nice Young Doctor with a sort of trendy floppy hair style as opposed to Dafydd and he had quite a following among female patients. So there we were rolling about laughing at the Incontinence Chairs and Dr Healy walked past at speed and my mate yelled out ‘Christ, Cliff Richard’s turned up here now’. I had worked with Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain of the People Trafficking Ring at St George’s Hospital Medical School by then; Chamberlain was mates with Cilla, who was of course mates with Cliff, but I didn’t know about the Cliff connection in those days.

The NHS is not the only institution to follow a policy of ‘one size fits all and it’s incontinence provision’. Aston University did as well, when Brown was an undergrad. All the mattresses in the halls of residence at Aston had plastic covers which could not be removed and Brown used to say ‘oh yes, we students are an incontinent lot’.

 

She worked hard, seldom leaving her office in the ORHA building (now officially called the Rosemary Rue building) before 7.30 pm and often a great deal later. Those who were still in the building would often put their heads around the door later in the evening in the hope of being rewarded with some good conversation about the issues of the day and a glass of cold dry sherry.

Rosemary Rue went on to a very active ‘retirement’ in 1988. At various times she was president of the Faculty of Community Medicine (now Public Health), president of the BMA (from 1990 to 1991),

So Rosemary was President of the BMA while my career was being ruined at St George’s, while another witness from my UCNW days was shafted when he was working for Big Pharma, while the BMA were giving Dafydd, Tony Francis and other members of the gang advice on how to refuse to respond to my complaints and instead prosecute me on the basis of their perjury. See previous posts eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’. Then there were the paedophile rings facilitated by Top Docs in north Wales and St George’s, as well as the Maudsley… the bodies of kids in care and psych patients turning up across north Wales… The hundreds of complaints that were ignored…

Wood that I’d received it. Since I began this blog I received info letting me know that was not a coincidence.

When I lived in Harringay during 1986-87, I volunteered for the Family Welfare Association after seeing adverts locally. The project was supporting women who were recovering from severe depression and I discovered that all the volunteers, like me, had volunteered on the grounds of ‘well I was just abandoned when that happened to me, surely there must be a better way’. The social worker who led the project seemed very nice, not barking mad a la Gwynedd Social Services, but I didn’t continue with the volunteering. Like some of the other volunteers, I found myself hassled by ne’r do wells. I know now that those hassling me at least were linked to a gang in north London which were linked to Dafydd et al. Dafydd had named contacts in Haringey Social Services, which were of course a by-word for abuse and neglect. See previous posts. Of course, the social worker for the FWA will have been well aware of what the NHS and Social Services in Haringey were doing to people. It might have been why she preferred to work for the FWA, but as with those working for charidees in north Wales, she would not have remained in even that job if she had dared blow the whistle on any of it…

 

She was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1989.

A reward for the loyal years of service. In the spring of 1989, I began my job at St George’s, which I have been told recently was a carefully planned trap to lure me in and then get me out of medical research for good.

You’re disgusting really aren’t you Dafydd?

In her last few years Rosemary continued to take an active interest in health service matters, despite having to deal with both breast and colon cancer, which she did with immense courage.

She’ll have had no choice, the research had all been faked for years so the treatment didn’t work and as Rosemary knew herself, the labs were in chaos – she was after all responsible for it – so cancer was often not diagnosed as early as it should have been.

She died at the age of 76, at the cottage in Stanton St John which had been her home for nearly 40 years, supported by her sons and grandchildren, of whom she had always been immensely proud.

Dame Rosemary’s obituary in the Indie provided yet more titbits.

Here’s the summary of her glorious career in white collar crime: Elsie Rosemary Laurence, medical practitioner: born Hutton, Essex 14 June 1928; Assistant County Medical Officer and part-time paediatrician, Hertfordshire 1960-65; hospital doctor, Oxfordshire 1965-73; Assistant Regional Medical Officer, Oxford Regional Hospital Board (later Oxford Regional Health Authority) 1965-71, Senior Assistant Medical Officer 1971-73, Regional Medical Officer 1973-88, Regional General Manager 1984-88; CBE 1977; seconded as Professor of Community Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine 1980-82; President, Medical Women’s Federation 1982-83; President, Faculty of Community Medicine 1986-89; DBE 1989; President, British Medical Association 1990-91; FRCS 1994; married 1950 Roger Rue (two sons; marriage dissolved); died Stanton St John, Oxfordshire 24 December 2004.

she decided on medicine as a career. This desire was fuelled by frequent visits to an aunt who ran a girl guide company among underprivileged children in Hackney…

Hackney had long since been the site of organised abuse and it became part of Dafydd’s business empire from the 1960s onwards… Top Docs, social workers, Councillors and politicians in the East End were fully on board as was Lord Elwyn-Jones, who was the vehicle between Wales and the East End. See previous posts. Peter Shore MP was particularly useful, as was his wife Elizabeth Shore, who was a Top Doc and served as Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England, 1977-84. Dafydd’s mate Lord David Ennals was Secretary of State for the DHSS, 1976-79. See post ‘R.I.P. Julia Grant and Many More’.

She was in a clinic on the day in 1948 when the National Health Service started, and the consultant (male) finished his clinic and announced that he was leaving rather than practice socialised medicine…

Ah the doctors they resigned! Call Uncle Harry, Julian Tudor-Spart, Santo Jeger and the many other pals of Dafydd who were Committed To The Poor. See previous posts.

In Oxford she hit a brick wall as the town’s hospitals didn’t employ married women. She found a job at an out-of-town long-stay hospital in Cowley Road

It will have been a truly grim asylum, or institution for the elderly or learning disabled.

when she didn’t mention the marriage or the baby. She employed a nanny at home to look after her new-born son and shared a flat adjoining the hospital with another doctor, rushing home in her time off to breast-feed.

So Rosemary was the sort of Top Doc who rocked up at the North Wales Hospital; living on the site of a dreadful institution, having taken the job because she couldn’t get anything else and was unable to make any difference to the lives of her patients.

Her flatmate, who was male and Ceylonese, helped her in so far as he could. 

Shades of Denbigh again; entrenched racism in medicine meant that overseas graduates tended to end up working in such places.

The hospital’s senior doctors were inspirationally committed to patients and ruthless at disregarding red tape.

This was Dafydd’s line. All laws were flagrantly breached while he Helped Inspirationally. By illegally imprisoning the victims of a sex abuse ring in a dungeon.

Dr Lionel Cosin got bedridden patients back on their feet, and rehabilitated long-stay patients who had been written off.

I know that this is unlikely to have been true, unless of course Lionel’s patients, in the spirit of north Wales, were not irretrievable and had been refused appropriate care by abusive colleagues. After all, I had manic depressive insanity which only returned when Dafydd’s mates unlawfully imprisoned me. People were gobsmacked at my miraculous recoveries between my bouts of manic depressive insanity, when I completed postgrad degrees and held down professional jobs. Then WHOOPS, my manic depressive insanity reared its head again. Just as I gathered more evidence and made further complaints about Dafydd et al. I will do some digging re Lionel.

He also let Rosemary spend an afternoon a week taking a psychiatry course.

Instead of having her hair done. It sounds like the CBT or Counselling Courses that the Angels do before it is stated that they are Trained.

It all ended when someone spilled the beans about the husband and the baby. She was sacked on the spot. The Ceylonese doctor was hit – by a senior doctor – for his presumption in sharing a flat with a white woman.

Jesus Christ. There wasn’t a prosecution then??? Er – but Rosemary eventually found herself at the top of the medicine tree after all this adversity, a tree in which she ignored the abuse and hardship still experienced by others…

Dr Lionel eliciting amazing recoveries in patients beyond all hope…Rosemary’s Ceylonese friend being smacked in the chops by a racist senior Top Doc employed in the hell-hole? I suspect that Rosemary’s career success was predicated on the method employed by so many whom I have discussed on this blog who knew what happened to me…

‘I’m going to tell… I’m going to tell…’

Ooh now there’s no need to get upset Rosemary, this is just one unfortunate incident, that Ceylonese ‘friend’ of yours has returned to his own country now..

DAME Rosemary here we come!!!

I am interested that although reference is made to ‘Rosemary’s husband’, no details of the husband are supplied anywhere. We know that Rosemary was sharing a flat with a Ceylonese man who was looking after Rosemary’s baby and who was then smacked in the chops by a Top Doc… Was the Ceylonese man Rosemary’s other half who was thumped for shagging One Of Our Women? I’m also wondering whether Rosemary might have been an unmarried mother, which was why she was treated so badly, kept her baby a secret and why no details of her husband are provided anywhere.

GP jobs were hard to find in 1952, but a GP who met Rue on the psychiatry course offered her a job in the industrial part of town.

I bet he did. Rosemary probably had a choice of jobs for the first time in her life. Jobs associated with psychiatry in Oxford, where the psychiatric services were concealing child abuse…

There, in 1954, she contracted polio from a patient. The disease was by then all but eradicated and she was the last person to get it in Oxford.

That was very unfortunate, what with Rosemary have so much crap on them all and just having received a bit of a break for once. Rosemary’s experiences are as bizarre as my own, but I’ve not been given a job running Oxfordshire Health Authority and the title of Dame.

Please Lilibet, if you’re reading this, I DON’T WANT IT!!! I’m not Rosemary, I won’t be keeping quiet in return for a gong.

With one useless leg and barely able to walk with her calipers and crutches, or to carry a medical bag, she briefly taught chemistry and biology in a girls’ school. She applied for medical jobs, drove to the interview, and if she was unable to get up the steps to the front door would phone and say she’d accepted another job.

By then – 1955 – she was separated from her husband and went to live with her parents in Hertfordshire. Their local, single-handed GP had undergone a leg amputation for cancer sarcoma and needed a part-time partner. At the interview he was hopping around on a pylon as he didn’t find his artificial limb helpful,

Although he’ll have known how useless they were when he and his colleagues distributed them to patients.

and he was pleased to find her: together they had two legs. General practice in 1955 was diverse and demanding: people gave birth at home, patients distrusted hospitals,

With good reason. Even Rosemary came to grief at their hands.

and hospitals didn’t want patients aged over 60.

My how things haven’t changed.

She was also medical officer to the RAF at Bovingdon.

Rosemary will have been witness/party to yet more wrongdoing there.

She moved on in 1960, becoming Assistant County Medical Officer for Hertfordshire and part-time paediatrician in Watford. Here, she said, she learned the importance of properly integrated medical and social services

The integration of those services oiled the wheels of organised abuse. Hence social worker Barbara Kahan and her Top Doc husband were able to become a double act.

and spent an academic term at the Institute of Child Health in London… 

Malpractice and abuse had become sufficiently embedded by then that the people teaching in such institutions – as on ‘psychiatry courses’ – were in on it…

She soon realised that all hospitals had basic architectural needs, such as the width of corridors and the gizmo in the panel at the bedheads, and designed basic modules that could be incorporated into every hospital, which cut down on architect bills and meant that the best designs were repeated everywhere.

The best designs which had to be replaced by hospitals of different designs because Rosemary’s best designs weren’t that good. Rosemary wasn’t a builder or an architect, so it is not entirely surprising that the best designs were later scrapped. I was told a curious tale some time ago, of the Top Docs at Ysbyty Gwynedd having a say in the design of the Hergest Unit. Being the Top Docs they all fought among themselves, but eventually Hergest was built. As the Hergest Unit sunk under the allegations of patient abuse and the death rate soared, the gang maintained that the building was at fault, it was All Wrong and Always Had Been. That is not what was said when the Hergest was built, it was the Top Docs’ pride and joy, people were given conducted tours and photos appeared in the press. The abuse at Denbigh was blamed on the building. The abuse at Tawel Fan was blamed on the building. Where had the staff at the Hergest and Tawel Fan been recruited from? Denbigh. Where the building ran a trafficking ring and illegally arrested the victims and then locked them inside of itself.

Milton Keynes was the first modern hospital to be built de novo: entire teams of medical, nursing and ancillary staff had to start from scratch on the same day. The new town was also a marvellous opportunity to build a health service that started from the patients and GPs, with community services and hospitals to support them in an inverted pyramid, rather than working from the top downwards.

Wasn’t Milton Keynes famous for its anomie and thus it was a case of Never Again? Decades down the line, Fungus Lowe was reaping the rewards though.

Rue persuaded the government to fund this by cutting the budgets of the London teaching hospitals, arguing logically that they were having to tout for patients as the capital’s population decreased.

The only way that a Lady Doctor with family responsibilities, a severe disability and a career history like Rosemary’s could have nabbed the dosh destined for the London teaching hospitals would be in the event of Rosemary having some really top class dirt on some top class people…

In Oxford, she had been the first regional medical officer to recognise the public health threat of Aids and to insist that no blood was given for transfusion unless it had undergone the newly developed test for the virus…

So DAME Rosemary knew what Lord Glenarthur had done just before AIDS was flagged up as a public health risk and DAME Rosemary made a point of covering her arse.

…she recently argued that the reason that the Sars respiratory virus outbreak had been effectively stopped was that the director-general of the World Health Organisation, Gro Harlem Brundtland, was public-health trained.

Wasn’t the reason for the non-epidemic of SARS that the predictions were hopelessly inaccurate because fundamental errors were made? I don’t think that anyone stopped the SARS epidemic, it just didn’t happen as expected. If Gro was the person responsible, why did Gro miss so many other public health risks?

She was elected to Fellowship of all the medical college…

The Dame had them all by the knackers.

She was a founding Fellow of Green College, Oxford

Of which Dafydd’s enormous umbrella Lord John Walton, the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne – whom the Dame knew – was Warden, 1983-89. See previous posts.

and she was awarded the Jenner medal of the Royal Society of Health. She wrote papers on ward design, women in medicine, general practice, community hospitals, and individuals requiring security.

The Dame was probably personally advising Dafydd’s gang on the security required by me, it is certainly not impossible. Particularly with Professors Mark Williams and Tom Burns being given Chairs in Cunning at Oxford University after finding out what Dafydd was up to and had done to me in particular. See previous posts…

In an era when many doctors were suspended,

Top Docs are rarely suspended

usually for whistle-blowing

Except for whistleblowers

Rue suspended only one, a man who was subsequently imprisoned for sexually assaulting children…

In the light of how many Top Docs were involved in a huge trafficking ring with which the Dame worked and kept quiet about, I suggest that someone reopens the case of this Top Doc who was imprisoned. He could well have been fitted up by the Dame, in the way that a series of attempts were made by people known to the Dame to fit me up for very serious offences which would have seen me in prison for years had the efforts of Dafydd et al not constantly blown up in their faces as a result of their own fuckwittery. If a ‘service’ has been colonised by serious organised crime, it will not be the criminals who are convicted, it will be those whom the criminals want to ensure will never be listened to again. One very effective way of dong that is to fit them up for sexual assaults on children. It was done in north Wales and I know of cases. It was/is the MO of Dafydd’s gang, but it was difficult for them to do that with me because I’m female and I don’t look gruesome and wear a shell suit a la Vicky Pollard, so other allegations had to be made.

She was respected and loved,

Translate as ‘loathed, but she could really cause us problems…’

and always understated her achievements.

Which is why she was called DAME.

After her retirement in 1988, she was President of the BMA for a year, Vice-President of the Alzheimer’s Society, Chairman of the Wyndham Housing Association in Oxford and of the Margaret Pyke Trust, which is concerned with family planning and sexual health.

Understating her achievements all the way, as the DAME made the tea and emptied the bins. Why am I not surprised that the Dame was concerned with family planning and sexual health at a time when police investigations were beginning right across the country into sex abuse rings targeting kids in care? A Lady Doctor who had dedicated her career to Empowering other Wimmin! Who had some very unsavoury colleagues that she never raised any concerns about, although she knew the sort of things that they did because one of them punched an Indian man in the face for daring to have sex with a White Lady. I have known a lot of Lady Doctors of the Dame’s ilk. They are called ‘accessories’. Their role as accessories was known to the police but no patients were warned.

 

Chitra ‘became the first woman and first South Asian (“Asian” in British English) to head the BBC’. It’s just as well that Chitra’s wiki entry explains that South Asians are ‘Asians’ in British English, because now the other Trustees can do what Ruth Deech did to Merfyn when he stated that the BBC shouldn’t deal in racial or ethnic stereotypes; Ruth banged on about how when Ruth thinks of Wales she thinks of chapels, valleys, singing, Snowdonia and those Welsh women’s hats which are like witches hats with the top cut off, which were never worn by any mainstream Welsh women, they were an invention – along with the rest of the Welsh women’s national dress – of Lady Llanover, who insisted that her servants dressed up in that gear. However, plastic versions of the hats can be purchased from the shops in Rhyl in the summer if Ruth Deech would like one. Ruth Deech got her Welsh stereotypes muddled up, they were an interesting mix of north, south and west Wales. So I need to warn the BBC that ‘Asian’ covers Chinese people as well as people like Chitra.

Baroness Ruth Deech wearing the National Dress of Gresham Professors of Law:

 

Chitra was born in Madurai – not in China Ruth!! – and has lived in the UK since 1972. She was educated at Ewart School, Madras and Christian Medical College and Hospital, Vellore, qualifying as a Top Doc before moving to the UK in 1972. Between 1981 and 2000, Chitra was consultant clinical haematologist at Belfast City Hospital and was Deputy Director of the N Ireland Blood Transfusion Service. She was elected to the GMC in 1999 where she served on a number of panels including Chair of the Fitness to Practise Adjudication Panels.

In the early 1970s, the GMC allowed Dr Morris Fraser, a paedophile child psychiatrist to continue practising. Fraser later sexually assaulted children. Fraser was involved with Kincora Boys’ Home and then left N Ireland to work at Springfield Hospital (the mental health unit linked to St George’s Hospital Medical School) and UCL. Chitra was working as a Top Doc in the UK when the GMC let Fraser practice, although Chitra was not on the GMC at the time.

Chitra was on the GMC and concerned with Fitness to Practice hearings when I made complaints to the GMC about Dr Tony Roberts of the Hergest Unit and his colleague Dr Andy Jones. Roberts had ordered my key worker off of my case against both my and the key worker’s wishes and had appointed himself my Top Doctor although I told him clearly that I did not want him as a Top Doctor. Roberts ordered every other Top Doc not to treat me. In response to me phoning the out of hours GP service one night, the GP contacted the service and ordered them to do ‘Do Nothing’, although the GP had told Roberts that I was ‘suicidal ++++’. I didn’t receive that documentation until years later, all I knew was that a very nice Lady Doctor (yes she was nice amazingly enough) had told me that she would make enquiries and do her best to help but when I phoned back later as requested, a Rude Bastard answered, told me ‘she’s not here, she’s gone, good bye’ and slammed the phone down on me. I now have the documentation compiled by the Rude Bastard. He documented that I had ring back and he had told me that the other GP wasn’t available – although she was just leaving the building when I rang – and that I could always contact Tony Roberts and that the ‘call was then over’. The Rude Bastard is a lay preacher as well as a GP in the Caernarfon area.

While under Tony Roberts’s ‘care’ I was violently assaulted by three healthcare assistants and an Angel and injured. I was prevented from reporting the assault to the police and was kept in a locked ward until the bruises faded. I was then arrested on the orders of Roberts for ‘threatening to kill’ an NHS manager. Eight NHS staff perjured themselves but the charges were withdrawn on the first day of my trial nearly two years later, by which time I had lost my home and my job.

Tony Roberts’s colleague Andy Jones had been my neighbour for a number of years. I knew Andy to be violent and that his previous partner had left him because of this, taking their son and had denied Andy access to him. Andy had remarried and had two young children. Tony Roberts told me that as well as Roberts being my doctor, Andy would be as well. I told Roberts that I did not want Andy as my doctor and furthermore Andy had been my neighbour for years, he couldn’t be my doctor. Roberts quacked at me that Andy was my doctor whether I wanted it or not and waddled off. I later found out that Andy had documented upon my records that I had set fire to the hospital. I have never set fire to anywhere.

I subsequently made representation to the GMC – while Chitra was sitting on it – about Roberts and Andy. The GMC wrote to Ysbyty Gwynedd and received a letter from Keith Thomson, the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust telling them that he had no concerns about Roberts or Andy and that I had made ‘outrageous allegations’ about the staff. The GMC refused to investigate. Years later my lawyer found a forged document in the possession of the GMC purporting to be a letter from me about Roberts and Jones. See post ‘The General Medical Council and Yet Another Forged Document’.

Andy Jones subsequently left his job at Ysbyty Gwynedd after he attacked his wife so violently that she was sectioned as a result of her distress. His children were taken into care on the grounds of serious neglect. I was told by a neighbour that Andy was working as a Top Doc in the US. Andy was finally removed from the Medical Register years later not long before I left Wales, after I told a GP that I knew about Andy’s violence and I knew that he had now lost access to three of his children because of it, that I had documentation demonstrating that the GMC and Ysbyty Gwynedd had known that he was violent and a danger to patients for years and that I would publish this. The GP told me that he would ring the GMC himself.

Ysbyty Gwynedd knew that Andy was unsuitable for employment before he went to Guy’s to begin his medical degree. He spent a year working as a porter at Ysbyty Gwynedd and during that time he was caught on a number of occasions having sex with other staff on hospital premises, during working hours. Andy’s brother worked in the Dept of Psychology at Bangor University and he knew Dafydd. I have been told that Andy was given that place at Guy’s in yet another ‘deal’ to buy the silence of people who knew what had happened to me back in the 1980s re Gwynne the lobotomist and Dafydd.

As for Tony Roberts, so many of his female patients killed themselves that it showed up as a statistical outlier; the highest rate of suicide among women in England and Wales outside of Camden. No-one could understand it because it was a rural area without the usual indicators for suicide. Except that Tony fucking Roberts was there. I was told by another mental health professional that Roberts was incapable of recognising illness or depression in women, he just told them all that they had borderline personality disorders and refused to treat them. They killed themselves in great numbers. Roberts was clinical director of the Hergest Unit. The death rate soared, there were complaints made to the Secretary of State for Wales and patients were even found dead on the wards. Still Roberts was not investigated.

Two very dangerous men Chitra. As a former President of the Medical Women’s Federation while there were demands for a public inquiry into the abuse of children in north Wales and while Dafydd and the gang perjured themselves, forged documentation and planted evidence in their efforts to have me imprisoned, could you explain why a few years later you popped you dreadful little head up at the GMC, where ONCE MORE you protected two members of a trafficking gang?

In 1996 – the year that William Hague announced the Waterhouse Inquiry – Bharucha moved into positions in the media industry, serving on the BBC Broadcasting Council for Northern Ireland until 1999. Chitra was there until just before Ronnie Waterhouse published the cover-up into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, which was linked to the abuse at Kincora Boys’ Home. In April 2001 Chitra was appointed as the N Ireland member of the Independent Television Commission, where she served until December 2003 when the ITC was subsumed into Ofcom and she became a member of the ASA Council in November 2004.

There’s nothing like a safe pair of hands is there Chitra?

In April 2002, Bharucha was appointed Chair of the Advisory Committee on Animal Feedingstuffs for the Food Standards Agency. I really don’t think that Chitra should even be let loose with the animals’ grub. She hasn’t got a very sound track record where Risk Assessment is concerned has she. Chitra is probably the person who OK’d the feeding of dead chickens ground up and mixed with other feed to be fed to chickens and similar practices.

In 2006 Chitra was appointed Lay Member of the Review Body for Judicial Complaints. Surely the appointment of Chitra as the first Woman Top Doc who is a Law Lord cannot be far away?

In October 2006, Bharucha was appointed as Vice Chairman of the BBC Trust. She was to be the Deputy to Michael Grade, the then BBC Chairman. Grade resigned soon after the formation of the Trust on 1 November 2006 and Bharucha became the Acting BBC Chairman, a position that she held until Sir Michael Lyons took over the Chairmanship on 1 May 2007. Bharucha stood down from her role as Vice Chairman of the Trust on 31 October 2010.

In the summer of 1985, Michael Grade and his mate Samuel Brittan, Leon Brittan’s brother, demanded that my friend’s head should roll when she was working at the Edinburgh Fringe’s box office and she refused to do a fiddle to bag Samuel Brittan a ticket and accommodation after the tickets had sold out and all accommodation was fully booked. Leon Brittan was Home Secretary at the time and Brown, I and our friends were under surveillance by the security services, because by that time, my battles with Dafydd’s gang had got out of hand. My friend’s mum and dad had been giving me advice re Dafydd’s gang, because they were health and social care professionals themselves. Then along came Michael Grade… My friend and the man whom she later married did begin careers in the media but they found gangsters after them and they were both forced out of the media in the early 1990s. See previous posts eg. ‘The Turn Of The Screw’. My friends had been at Stirling University with Jack McConnell, who later became FM of Scotland, who I have been told was behind much of the grief that my friends received. See previous posts.

Gordon Brown is pals with Jack McConnell and has been for years. Gordon was very nice to Jack, although he really hated some of Jack’s militant mates. See previous posts. Gordon Brown is married to Sarah, who was previously Sarah Macaulay. Sarah met Gordon via her PR company Hobsbawm Macaulay Communications, which did a lot of work for the Labour Party and trade unions. Sarah established Hobsbawm Macaulay with her friend from Camden School for Girls, Julia Hobsbawm. Julia’s dad Eric was a Marxist historian who, although a Commie himself, supported the Labour Party and unbelievably, the Windbag. Julia ended up as a friends of the PM’s wife! The Hobsbawm’s main residence was in Camden, but they had a second home in Croesor in Gwynedd. Croesor was the centre of the Welsh Bloomsbury Set, a group of radicals, activists on the left and intellectuals who had second homes in the area throughout the middle years of the 20th century. They congregated there because of the presence of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who’s wife Amabel was a member of the Strachey family and of course the presence of Bertrand Russell nearby. The main residences of the Welsh Bloomsbury Set were usually in London, often Camden. See posts g. ‘The Village’, ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’.

The Welsh Bloomsbury Set knew what Gwynne and Dafydd were up to and a number of them made use of their services. Some of them were involved with sexual exploitation and abuse themselves and many more were protecting people who were because they were their friends or relations. They were able to do this very effectively because so many of them were influential well-connected people, including Top Docs, analysts, politicians, writers, journos, lawyers etc.

Merfyn Jones, who later became VC of Bangor University, grew up in the area and his parents ran a pub, the Brondanw Arms, which they rented from Sir Clough’s estate. See previous posts. Merfyn had witnessed Dafydd and Gwynne’s reign of terror at first hand and knew what it was all about: the Westminster Paedophile Ring. That is the reason why so many of those we know and love had a problem with Merfyn.  Now fuck off gwerin, Top Doctors, Miranda, Gordon and everyone else who threw mud at Merfyn and helped hound him out of public life, you have been party to the most dreadful criminality past and present and it has now been exposed on this blog. That is what you get for coming after me you bastards, don’t ever try it again. I’m not as polite as Merfyn and furthermore I spent years witnessing the crimes of your powerbase – the Top Doctors. And then I got my paws on 10,000 documents detailing an even greater conspiracy that I realised…

I’m digging into the Hutton Inquiry at the moment Miranda. I note that the trouble all kicked off when Merfyn was a BBC Guv’nor and gave me that place to do a PhD at Bangor University…

You are a metropolitan twat Miranda, don’t ever underestimate a bumpkin or a sheepshagger…

 

Baroness Ilora Finlay was the President of the Medical Women’s Federation, 2001-02. The Baroness was also appointed President of the BMA in 2014, when the Macur Review, the cover-up of the cover-up which was the Waterhouse Inquiry, began.

Ilora Gillian Finlay, Baroness Finlay of Llandaff, (born 23 February 1949) is an Independent crossbencher in the Lords. Ilora is the only daughter of Professor Charles Beaumont Benoy Downman. Professor Charles Downman was a Prof of Physiology at London University, who served in the RAMC, completed his PhD at Tommy’s and held senior academic posts at the Royal Free Hospital.

Ilora married Andrew Yule Finlay in 1972, with whom she has two children. She is a past President of the Royal Society of Medicine, just like the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Ilora is a Professor of Palliative Medicine at Cardiff University School of Medicine and consultant at the Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff. Cardiff University, particularly the School of Medicine, formerly known as the Welsh National School of Medicine, has for decades concealed serious criminality, including Dafydd’s gang and George Thomas’s sex offending. The two Mr Bigs at Cardiff who concealed organised sexual abuse were Professor Sir William Asscher, who was called to cover the crap at St George’s when Professor Oliver Brooke, their lead paediatrician, was jailed for child porn in 1986 (see post ‘Oliver!’) and Professor Kenneth Rawnsley, Prof of Psychological Medicine at Cardiff. Rawnsley’s wife Dr Elinor Kapp was a child psychiatrist who also concealed organised abuse. See previous posts.

Tony Francis trained with Rawnsley and I have been told that Tony Francis and Baroness Ilora knew each other. Ilora bagged her peerage in 2001, the year following the publication of the Waterhouse Report. That was also the year in which LADY Finlay was appointed President of the Medical Women’s Federation!

Baroness Finlay was appointed a consultant in 1987, the year in which Dafydd, Tony Francis et al hatched an elaborate plan to frame me and have me imprisoned shortly after the June 1987 General Election, but it unravelled when a police officer and nursing officer didn’t tell as many lies as were required (see post ‘Hey, Hey, DAJ, How many Kids Did You Kill Today?’). In 1987 Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane took pity on Oliver Brooke and ordered Ollie’s early release from prison, just before the General Election (see post ‘Oliver!’). Finlay was named Welsh Woman of the Year, 1996-97. Women who’ve helped the paedophile gang often bag that award, it went to Professor Judy Hutchings one year, a clinical psychologist who spent years working with Dafydd’s gang and invented a parenting programme, ‘Incredible Years’, which was yet another way that people who were suffering at the hands of the gang could be blamed for their own problems. See previous posts.

In 2008 Finlay secured the ‘Woman Peer of the Year’ award. I expect Ruth Deech has won that as well. It’ll be the Baroness of Ely’s turn soon.

The Baroness Finlay has not been able to explain why palliative care is still so bad, including in Cardiff, what with her having been a Professor of it for such a long time. As for the Velindre Centre, that was a favourite destination of the meathead Rhodri Morgan for his photo opps, ‘ooh here’s Rhodri with the Angels and Docs at the Velindre Centre!’ Previous posts discuss some of the less well-publicised problems re the Velindre Centre.

In 2003 the Baroness proposed a bill to ban smoking in public buildings in Wales, three years before it was eventually implemented. The Baroness, Mark Drakeford and Julie Morgan, Rhodri’s wife, all have a big problem with other people smoking. Smoking isn’t a good idea, but I do wish that the Baroness, Julie and Drakeford, all of whom worked with people involved with sexual abuse and exploitation and serious criminality, would become as exercised about that as they did about smoking.

In 2007, Lady Finlay introduced a private members bill seeking to change the current system of organ donation from ‘opt in’ to ‘opt out’. Wales has now adopted the ‘opt out’ system, which as I have discussed previously on the blog has a terrifying potential in a nation with an endemically corrupt NHS staffed by people involved with serious organised crime. 

In March 2010, Baroness Finlay sponsored the Sunbeds (Regulation) Bill as it reached the House of Lords for scrutiny. With just weeks before the forthcoming General Election, Baroness Finlay took the MP Julie Morgan’s private members bill through its final stages, to Royal Assent. Rhodri boasted about this in his autobiography, he thinks it’s why Lilibet was so impressed with Julie on the day that they met Lilibet when Lilibet did her ‘Have you come far?’ bit. ‘Only from south Wales, where the Baronesses Finlay and of Ely live like Royalty, along with the Morgans, while everyone else is in’t shoebox in’t middle of t’road being lectured about fucking sunbeds, while the Top Docs preside over the worst mortality rates in Europe, run a trafficking gang and flog class A drugs.’

Baroness Finlay is a Co-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group, which brings together parliamentarians committed to tackling CO poisoning. Lady Finlay also Chairs the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dying Well, which promotes palliative care… Her pal Tony Francis was one of the lead consultant psychiatrists in a region with one of the highest rates of suicide in the UK.

Finlay is a Vice President of Marie Curie (an organisation with a serious work-place bullying problem), Patron of the Trussell Trust’s foodbank network in Wales – Wales has some of the highest poverty levels in the UK, but the Baroness, the Morgans and the Francis’s haven’t experienced this themselves – and the Motor Neurone Disease Association. Ilora Finlay is also Patron of Student Volunteering Cardiff. She was a Founding Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales, a collection of pompous paedophiles’ friends who bestow honours upon each other and is a Member of its inaugural Council. Ilora is Patron of the charidee Students for Kids International Projects. In 2017, she was appointed one of two Patrons of the Royal Microscopic Society, the other being fellow member of the Lords, Baroness Brown of Cambridge. 

In March 2015, Finlay was awarded the Grassroots Diplomat Initiative Honouree for her ‘vigorous championing’ to improving the care of dying patients. The ironies never stop. Did Finlay hear about the circumstances under which Ann Clwyd’s husband died in the University Hospital in Cardiff? Ann Clwyd and her husband were Of Dafydd as well, even they don’t get a dignified death now that Dying is the remit of Ilora Finlay. 

The Baroness’s old friend Tony Francis killed himself in 2012, after Operation Pallial re-opened the investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. I was told that he hung himself. So the Baroness of Palliative Care didn’t ensure that Francis went out painlessly or with dignity then…

 

Now for the Lady Doctor who served as President of the Medical Women’s Federation, 1966-67, back when Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson was Minister of Health and  also working cheek by jowl with Dafydd in MIND and undoubtedly knew that his Ministry was facilitating a paedophile/trafficking ring. It was Josephine Barnes.

Dame Alice Josephine Mary Taylor Barnes (18 August 1912 – 28 December 1999), was the first female president of the BMA, 1979-80. That was the year in which Dafydd illegally imprisoned Mary Wynch. Mary sued, she won, her case made legal history and there was not a word from a Top Doctor, Lady, Man or Hermaphrodite.

Josephine Barnes was born in 1912, the eldest of five. She was born in Sheringham, Norfolk and educated at Oxford High School and Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University. Barnes then studied medicine at UCL. When WW II started Barnes was appointed to a post at the Samaritan Hospital. From 1947 she ran a mobile obstetric team from UCH. Barnes was the first woman consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at Charing Cross Hospital, appointed in 1954. Her colleagues in the Dept of Psychiatry there were part of the trafficking ring and also did some terrible things in the Gender Identity Clinic (see previous post). Barnes will have known about the GIC clinic not only because it was famous, but because of the overlap with gynaecology.

Barnes was also Chairman of the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital Appeal Trust, President of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (known since 1994 as the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women’s Health), 1977-95 and President of the Royal British Nurses’ Association.

Top Doctors are often to be found heading organisations of healthcare professionals who are not Top Docs, which is curious because these professional groups are hostile to each other. I suspect that the presence of a Top Doctor is welcomed because they have a lot more clout than Angels, but the downside is that the Top Doc would then start calling the shots… The Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Dafydd’s friend and protector Lord John Walton, had nothing but contempt for anyone who was not a Top Doc but he acquired high office with the occupational therapists professional association. Walton arrived in that position when it was clear that the one whistleblower employed in the NHS in Gwynedd was not going to be intimidated out of his job; that whistleblower was a senior occupational therapist. He developed MS and found that the neurologist at Ysbyty Gwynedd was hostile and worse than useless. John Walton was a neurologist, neurosurgeon and a psychiatrist. John Walton knew Gwynne the lobotomist and Walton really will not have wanted anyone at all working in north Wales who was listening to patients and raising concerns. The whistleblowing occupational therapist was presenting a problem in Gwynedd, because he had a different line manager who was not Of The Gang, so the Bastard arrived at the top of the whistleblower’s professional association, no doubt waiting for a complaint of professional misconduct that was under development…

Between 1995 and 1996, Barnes was President of the History of Medicine Society at the Royal Society of Medicine. My post ‘The Wrong Set’ discussed how Top Doctors involved with colleagues who were facilitating abuse or indeed doing so themselves, began turning themselves into Historians of Medicine when police investigations were being launched into the organised child abuse in the 1980s. Dafydd’s colleagues in north Wales began rewriting history in the early 1990s. I note that Barnes became President of the History of Medicine Society the year that her colleagues at St George’s Geoffrey Chamberlain and Malcolm Pearce were in the media again. This was as a result of the research fraud scandal in which they had been previously named resulting in Malcolm appearing before the GMC and being struck off in the summer of 1995. Chamberlain’s name was on the journal article of lies as well, but Chamberlain wasn’t even investigated by the GMC, he gave evidence against Malcolm.

Chamberlain was friends with Sir George Pinker, the Royal Gynaecologist who delivered William and Harry and had celebs as his patients including Cilla, so Chamberlain couldn’t appear before the GMC. Josephine Barnes knew Chamberlain and Oinker. When Chamberlain retired from the NHS in 2000, he was given a job at Swansea University – Chamberlain was posh Welsh, he went to Llandaff Cathedral School – lecturing in the History of Medicine. Just in time for the publication of the Waterhouse Report… Rhodri Morgan’s family effectively ran Swansea University… See previous posts.

Years Later:

Appearing on TV discussion programme ‘After Dark’ in 1997. Arrogant sneer and glare still intact…

Josephine Barnes was also a Friend of the English Pocket Opera Company and a Guardian of Westminster Abbey. She was a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, the Royal College of Surgeons of England and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, of which was she sometime Vice-President.

Josephine Barnes’s obituary appears on the Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online:

b.18 August 1912 d.28 December 1999
DBE(1974) BA Oxon(1934) MA BM BCh(1937) FRCS(1939) DM(1941) FRCOG(1952) FRCP(1967) Hon FRCPI(1977) Hon MD Liverpool(1979) Hon DSc Leicester(1980) Hon MD Southampton(1981) Hon DSc Oxon(1990) Hon FRCOG(1994)

Dame Josephine Barnes ranked among the leading obstetricians and gynaecologists of her generation. Outstanding clinical credentials and drive took her to a top teaching hospital appointment, against the grain of male selection, in the 1950s.

It won’t just have been outstanding clinical credentials, Barnes really will have been ruthless and insensitive to have withstood the aggro.

A combination of expertise, glamour and fine advocacy of better women’s reproductive health care soon led to national celebrity,

It was because she was a young woman working in that field, a novelty.

while on the international stage she became a renowned contributor to gynaecological academies and conferences. In 1979 she became the 139th, and first woman, president of the British Medical Association. Membership of three national committees of inquiry further added to her stature.

Josephine was a safe pair of hands. She was at daggers drawn with many colleagues and received no favours from them as a young doctor, but she was never ever going to break ranks and risk the very dangerous ship sinking.

Her fine teaching of clinical students at Charing Cross Hospital Medical School, London, was as meticulous as her surgery and the basis of influential textbooks. It is said that she operated with the incisiveness of Beecham beginning a Schubert symphony.

Top Docs love making comments like this. It reminds them that they are not just Clever Doctors, but they are Cultured as well. Excuse me while I read my latest ‘Take a Break’.

Josephine Barnes had a warm pride in her Yorkshire ancestry. In industriousness, she identified closely with an impressive line of Taylor forebears from which her mother emanated. Her great grandfather, John Francis Taylor, had been a captain of Victorian commerce in York, a founding director of a bank and insurance company, and pioneering chairman of York’s gas and electricity companies. To this family, her mother, Alice Mary née Ibbotson, one of the earliest women accorded fellowship of the Royal College of Organists, added musical distinction.

A Grand Family with loyalties to Savile Central.

Brought up in Exeter, Scarborough and Oxford, the first of five children, Josephine Barnes attended schools along the path of her father’s, the Reverend Walter W Barnes’, Methodist ministry.

Read eg. ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’ and ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’ for discussion of the Methodist network which was involved in the Westminster Paedophile Ring, particularly the Wales arm of it… Not all Methodists were involved, as with Top Docs some will have been horrified, but like medicine, it was group identity and reputation at stake.

Within the exceptional, self-directed learning ambience of Oxford High School for Girls in the 1920s, she took up science, decided on a career in medicine and rejected her family’s long-treasured Methodism stretching back to Wesley.

She will have still been loyal to them even if she wasn’t a practising Methodist.

The hockey skills that were to bring her three Oxford blues also began to develop. As a medical student at Oxford she read natural sciences, before transferring to University College Hospital (UCH) Medical School, London, for clinical training. The beginnings of her surgical career were in the Oxford anatomy department and the tuition of dissection demonstrator Alice Carleton, which propelled her to the primary fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons at 22.

Having trained in surgery at Oxford, Barnes will have known Sir Charles Evans, the Top Doc who served as Principal of UCNW for the best part of 30 years until 1984. See post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’

First class honours in physiology at Oxford and a Goldschmid scholarship for clinical studies added to this early distinction. Fastidious commitment distinguished her medical school career at UCH. Intent on becoming a first-rate clinician and aware of the gender bias then operating against women in medicine, she strove to outclass male contemporaries. But it was not all work and no play: she still managed to read two novels a week, play hockey for a London University team and sing with the London Philharmonic Choir, occasionally under the direction of Sir Thomas Beecham and once under the German musician and composer, Wilhelm Furtwängler.

Barnes will have been able and hardworking, but when she trained, medicine was definitely not as onerous for students as it later became.

She accumulated clinical competence on the firms of Sir Francis Walshe, Sir John McNee, Wilfrid Trotter, Julian Taylor and Clifford White. These were the 1930s – heydays of UCH teaching. The brilliant young registrar Max Rosenheim (later Lord) assisted her early diagnostic skills. Assisting him, she watched “the miraculous first use of Prontosil at UCH”.

Prontosil is Sulphonamide, one of the miracles that Beryl Corner used as detailed earlier in this post. Lord Max Rosenheim went to Shrewsbury School, which is where Sir Charles Evans the Principal of UCNW went to school, then to St John’s College Cambridge and then to UCH. Ronnie Waterhouse went to St John’s College Cambridge and was an enthusiastic networker among the alumni.

Josephine Barnes qualified in 1937, with UCH medals and prizes and keenly focused on a career in obstetrics and gynaecology, a disciple of “the finest tutor” of her training, Francis ‘F J’ Browne, the principal architect of modern hospitalised maternity care. She intended following Browne’s footsteps in advancing antenatal care and safety of childbirth.

The first steps were the trickiest. She ran into male prejudice at UCH in trying to secure the house officer appointments needed on the hospital career ladder. Her first application for a medical house job fell flat, and she needed to divert to the King Edward VII Hospital, Windsor, for surgical experience. Eventually, at UCH she was taken on to the firm of physicians Andrew Morland and John Hawksley and, as a result of Morland’s teaching, became interested in tuberculosis, leading to her 1941 Oxford DM research on TB and pregnancy. Finally, in the months leading up to the Second World War, she fulfilled her ambition to gain a house job in the obstetrics unit of the UCH and qualified MRCP.

She qualified FRCS in 1939 and, advised by the BMA, abandoned thoughts of military service to serve on ‘the home front’,

Even Josephine was being contained by the establishment to which she was so loyal.

filling in for hospital doctors who had been called up. She spent six months as a house surgeon at the Samaritan Hospital for Women, Marylebone, then six months as a resident medical officer at nearby Queen Charlotte’s Maternity Hospital, maintaining high quality maternity care amidst the worst horrors of the London Blitz.

No, the maternity care at the time wasn’t ‘high quality’, it was basic, there was a bloody war on.

She filled a vacancy in the Nuffield obstetrics and gynaecology department at Oxford’s Radcliffe Hospital in 1941, working as first assistant to Chassar Moir, the revered discoverer of ergometrine. In addition to surgical lists and teaching Oxford’s first intake of clinical students, she took charge of the emergency maternity annexe set up at Ruskin College for women evacuated from the industrial towns of the south coast. In this Oxford year she qualified as a member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

Securing the first assistant’s post at F J Browne’s professorial unit took her back to UCH at the beginning of 1942, where, with the staff depleted by military service, she also took took up registrar duties. Her career had begun gaining momentum of a kind possible only in wartime

Particularly for women. The blokes weren’t there to be given priority.

and, swept off her feet by junior UCH house officer Brian Warren, she added marriage to her CV in 1942, before his departure on Army service.

She was to combine marriage, motherhood, senior hospital appointments and research with renowned efficiency.

It wasn’t all a roaring success, as we shall see…

In 1942 she began a 500-case study of the credentials of pethidine as an obstetrics analgesic. Soon after becoming a mother, late in 1943, she embarked on a parallel study investigating and eventually contradicting the view that pregnancy increased women’s long-term risks of hypertension. She also inaugurated a UCH study of postnatal diuresis.

The years 1945 to 1947 were pivotal and career advancing. She slimmed down her commitments at UCH to take on locum consultant duties at the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital, Marylebone, and appointments as visiting gynaecological surgeon at the Marie Curie Hospital, Hampstead, and Hospital for Women, Soho Square. In addition, she set up in private practice in Wimpole Street and began serving on national committees of the Family Planning Association and National Birthday Trust Fund, also as volunteer obstetrician to the Annie McCall Maternity Home charity in Stockwell.

Josephine Barnes will have treated patients who were the victims of sexual assault and abuse, including very young patients. She was also treating the privileged people who had colluded with this or had been party to it. Barnes was treating patients from across the whole spectrum of London life.

Jeffrey Archer worked as a fundraiser for the National Birthday Trust after he graduated from Oxford. See post ‘Tuppence and His Fragrant Wife’.

She also began forging links with obstetricians and gynaecologists on the Continent, with contributions to conferences in France, Belgium and Spain, and membership of the Société Française de Gynécologie in 1946, the first of many international academic bonds.

Her appointment as obstetrics and gynaecology consultant on the staff of the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital in 1947 coincided with the retirement from UCH of her greatest mentor, F J Browne, and the arrival of C W C Nixon as professor, with whom she had a less satisfactory association. Nixon sacking her in 1953, to make way for a prestigious research associate, Cicely Williams of kwashiorkor fame, was a massive blow. This injustice Barnes, now a fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and mother of three, brilliantly transcended in becoming the first female consultant at London’s Charing Cross Hospital in 1954, “while the Nixon-Williams association yielded little”.

So Barnes, despite being so impressive, was kicked out unfairly and dealt with it in the way that people do when they know that they are dealing with a hideous system that is so loaded against them, indeed corrupt; she had a bloody good laugh at the lack of achievement at those who shafted her.

Good evening gwerin and Top Docs! I hope that you are enjoying my blog, which I am delighted to say has built up one hell of a readership…

With this teaching hospital appointment, Josephine Barnes joined the front-rank of obstetrics and gynaecology specialists and began a tour de force quarter century of colossal clinical distinction and eminent advocacy of better women’s reproductive welfare. In 23 years at Charing Cross she never had an operating death. She was a meticulous operator, “spilling little blood, needing little use of diathermy”. And throughout these years she continued on the staff of the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital, which she would save from closure in the 1970s and as visiting surgeon at the Marie Curie Hospital, with additional lists at UCH, where she operated on private patients. The publicity her illustrious career attracted and the keen judgement she wielded made her a leading ambassador of family planning and she was an invaluable supporter of David Steel’s Abortion Bill of 1967.

David Steel’s success with his Abortion Bill was the result of the usual dirty dealing and blackmailing of Top Docs and politicians who had been involved in wrongdoing. The Top Docs didn’t back Steel’s bill out of the goodness of their hearts, most of them were still opposed to abortion in 1967, but some key Top Docs had their arms twisted and thus lent their support to the bill and ordered the minions to follow their lead. See previous posts…

She had seen too many victims of back street abortionists not to want legislative change, but, after successfully campaigning with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists for termination to be within the first 24 weeks of pregnancy, would later regard this as six weeks too long. Her memoirs talk of massive discomfort in undertaking abortion at any stage.

Barnes might well have experienced massive discomfort in undertaking abortion, many Top Docs do. But Josephine Barnes knew that her colleagues at Tommy’s were performing illegal abortions on demand pre-1967 for a fee while turning away women without the money, knowing that those women would risk their lives with an illegal abortion;  she also knew that Sir Dugald Baird in Aberdeen was unlawfully aborting babies of low income families because he didn’t think that Poor People should breed. See previous posts.

She served on the Royal Commission on Medical Education, 1965-68, became an FRCP (a qualification denied her during the presidency of Lord Russell Brain)

Barnes did know that this was not a system based on merit or fair play.

and began long service on the boards of the Royal Free Hospital, the Medical Women’s Federation and Medical Defence Union

The Royal Free which was run by mates of Dafydd’s and offered Duncan Orme a place on the NHS management training scheme in return for his silence about Gwynne the lobotomist and the trafficking gang, which Orme had witnessed while he had been the SU Welfare Officer at UCNW in the mid-1980s (see previous posts). During the 1980s, there were public protests outside of the Royal Free by women who were so angry after their bad childbirth experiences there. There were many, many complaints.

The MDU who knowingly supplied Top Docs involved in very serious crime with advice as to how to prosecute their victims, even when it involved the Top Docs committing perjury and requesting the imprisonment of the victims of their criminality…

in addition to chairing the medical committees of the Marie Curie and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson hospitals, and examining for the universities of Oxford, London and Belfast, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and Conjoint Board of Royal Medical Colleges. Examining took her to Africa, Australia and the Caribbean.

An international network. We’re the paedophiles’ friends and you can’t get us…

International travels, advising and lecturing, took her to more than 20 countries in the course of her long career, “in the interests of better women’s medical welfare”, while in Britain she built an incomparable record of commitment to sexual health charities and agencies in this field, including the Family Planning Association, Women’s National Cancer Control Campaign, and the National Associations of Family Planning Doctors, Family Planning Nurses, and Chartered Physiotherapists in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, over which she presided for 20 years.

Josephine Barnes knew about those trafficking rings. ‘We’re the paedophiles’ friends, we are absolutely everywhere, we control everything and if you begin to publish accounts of our wrongdoing, we’ll become historians and rewrite history.’

Before compulsory retirement from the NHS in 1977, when she felt at her peak and still managing 60 hour weeks, she served on the Lane Committee on the Working of the Abortion Act (from 1971 to 1973)

Barnes knew that until about 1990, all women in north Wales were being unlawfully refused NHS abortions by a conspiracy of Top Docs, who instead were happy to refer them on demand in return for a fee to a dangerous private abortionist in Chester. She knew that women who didn’t have the fee would be referred to Dafydd ‘for assessment’ and knew that they still wouldn’t be offered an NHS abortion. Barnes also knew where all those disappearing babies went. See eg. ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’.

Barnes kept schtum about these matters until she died, throughout every investigation, public inquiry and media debate.

had the honour of becoming a DBE and vice president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 1974, and only missed being elected president in the following year by one vote – “a moment of rare dejection”.

The President of the Royal College in 1974-75 was Sir Stanley Clayton. Clayton was one of the posh old Top Doctors of the genre who were always appointed President at the time. A few years later, Sir George Pinker, the Royal Gynaecologist, served as President. Josephine knew him as well as all the other posh old Top Docs of that era.

But the decade would close on a high note, when she became the first women president of the BMA, with membership of the Warnock Committee on In Vitro Fertilisation and Human Embryology following in its wake (1982 from 1984).

It is now clear that the Warnock Committee did not in any way protect patients from dangerous unscrupulous Top Docs. Mary Warnock had no idea of the sort of things that they were doing, but Dame Josephine knew. She just didn’t tell Mary Warnock. No-one ever asked why Dame Josephine hadn’t piped up when the scams and distressed patients began to emerge…

She continued in private practice until 1995, although delegating surgery from 1987, “a colossal wrench after a career spanning about 80,000 operations”. The deep satisfaction of fine surgery, like the immense joy of midwifery and successes of her children (Penny, Amanda and Anthony), helped overcome the hurt of a broken marriage. She was divorced in 1964 and her former husband went on to become a prestigious private practitioner and was knighted in 1974.

Dame Josephine’s ex was one hell of a Top Doc as we shall see. Her marriage was the first thing that didn’t live up to the Superwoman myth.

“A long life of clinical and social service, revealing to me every shade of what Balzac called the human condition, was a stunning privilege from end to end” is how Dame Josephine concluded her memoirs in 1999″

Social service to the most privileged members of society, including some involved in serious organised crime. A huge cheating exercise on their victims.

The Guardian’s obituary for Josephine was wonderful:

Dame Josephine Barnes, who has died at the age of 87, demurred at being called a feminist,

She would have probably given anyone who asked her if she was one a mouthful.

but devoted her vigorous and distinguished career to the cause of women’s medicine.

No, she devoted her career to the cause of her own career in medicine.

Her death robs us of a neatly built, ever courteous combatant for improved infant mortality, a woman’s right to choose abortion, contraception, and better cancer care for women.

Unless they lived in north Wales. Or were kids in care. Or psych patients. Or disabled. Or had little money. The cock-ups experienced by female private patients at the hands of some of London’s finest Top Docs also tells us that Josephine wasn’t always there to fight on behalf of well-to-do women.

Dame Josephine Barnes – a combatant for the rights of those who had more power than nearly anyone else on the planet!

Her firm belief that women should have their own hospital brought her from retirement to the forefront of a protest march to Downing Street, when Margaret Thatcher, whose party she supported, threatened to close the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson hospital, in north London.

The saga over the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson was, like the case of Wendy Savage, portrayed by the media as a Women’s Choice Battle. It was in reality, like Wendy Savage, a scrap between Top Doctors. See previous posts for an account of the battle over the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson.

She was born in Norfolk and christened with all the family names because her father, a Methodist minister, and her mother, a professional musician, did not expect to have more children. In fact, four siblings followed. Her family moved around the country, although she spent much time at vicarages in Yorkshire and Oxford.

Tony Francis came from Norfolk. My post ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’ discusses the public figures in Norfolk – including Lord David Ennals – who were facilitating organised abuse in the county. Harold Wilson’s wife Mary was born in Norfolk, the daughter of a Congregationalist Minister (see post ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’).

She was educated at Oxford high school, after trying to run away from boarding school several times. After studying physiology at Oxford University, she completed her clinical training at University College Hospital, London, in 1937. It was here that Barnes decided to specialise in gynaecology, giving an inspiring professor, who encouraged her, credit for much of the zeal she went on to demonstrate.

She worked in a number of GP surgeries and hospitals before returning to head the obstetrics unit at UCH (1947-52) and became surgeon to the Marie Curie hospital (1947-67). On paper, her career appears to have progressed effortlessly, but her daughter, Amanda Warren, remembers her mother deducing that being a woman did seem to make things harder at times, although there was never the kind of anger at injustice that feminists voiced.

Josephine won’t have looked at the situation in a Polly Toynbee-esque way. She was a hard, unsympathetic woman who wanted a career in surgery/obs and gynae and consciousness raising will not have been on her radar. She will have been used to dreadful behaviour from her male colleagues, but she will have treated other people in that way herself. The matter of being a woman will only have come to the fore when she had children and physical factors intervened. Even being sacked by Old Gits will have just caused Barnes to take the view of ‘oh fuck you then, I’ll out perform you’.

The toughest obstacle she faced, she once remarked, was convincing her bemused parents that she wanted to be a doctor when she made the decision at the age of 13. It was thanks to the refusal of the British Medical Association (BMA) to take her for war service work that Barnes was able to continue studying long enough to take her FRCS finals, becoming one of the few women surgeons of her time and a role model for female medical students.

She won’t have thought of herself as a role model. She was a Top Doctor.

But, in fact, the war gave her – and other women, she claimed – great opportunities because the men had to go to fight, while women were left to do everything.

Josephine and some other professional women were indeed afforded career opportunities because of WW II. Other women worked as well, but even those who enjoyed their work and wanted to remain there found themselves under pressure to give their jobs up to the men when they returned from the war. Professional women were able to remain in their jobs and many of him had reached senior positions.

She spent much of the war period delivering babies and performing operations during the bombing of London. She later ran an obstetrics flying squad from UCH, a position which brought a conviction that babies should be born in hospital.

Top Docs of her generation always said that, because they saw mothers and babies die in front of them. That’s the bit that they didn’t tell the public. ‘My patient died and I could not save them.’ Chamberlain used to tell staff how as a young man, he watched a new mother bleed to death from a postpartum haemorrhage.

Simultaneously, her concern about infant mortality led her to take the chair of a steering committee for two state maternity surveys, set up between 1948 and 1970, which followed babies through their lives in an attempt to measure the impact on their development of premature birth and, particularly, social class.

Geoffrey Chamberlain was involved with similar work. The people involved with these maternity surveys knew about the dreadful stats and mortality rates for north Wales…

After the war, Barnes was offered a post at the women-only Elizabeth Garrett Anderson hospital, and stayed for 30 years, becoming a consultant after she reluctantly retired from the NHS, aged 67. She was an early campaigner for women’s abortion rights, joining the Abortion Law Reform Association, a position that brought a good degree of public disapproval. But when she believed something was right, she was not to be beaten down.

She later became involved with the issue of cancer screening and president of the Women’s National Cancer Control Campaign, continuing this involvement into her 80s.

Barnes knew that the public were being lied to about that as well.

She was made a DBE in 1974 and became the first woman president of the BMA in 1979.

She married fellow physician Brian Warren in 1942, and within a year their first child, Penny, was born. Amanda and a son, Anthony, followed. The couple were divorced in 1964. Because, when she had her first child, her parents were able to put her and the baby up, Barnes continued working. Likewise, she returned to work two weeks after Amanda was delivered by a difficult Caesarean. Commiserations at how painful it must have been to leave a small baby were swept away as she explained that she was looking forward to going back to work.

Wife, mother and Lady Doctor! Er, shouldn’t that just be ‘Lady Doctor?’

Barnes is remembered by one daughter as having shaped her children’s lives with a routine in which she played her part – conscientious and quick to help if there was a problem, but always busy and with very little free time for playing or just being with them. She was always clear that work was her priority, saying firmly that she wanted to “make herself useful in the outside world”. She reflected in an interview after her children had grown up that she did not believe she had been a good mother, or that she could have stayed at home.

She was a Lady Doctor.

The children were sent to boarding school

A Lady Doctor.

and even then there was only just time, Barnes observed, for her work and the immense list of committees and professional organisations to which she had belonged through the years.

A Lady Doctor working flat out.

In the early days of her career, Barnes went into slum houses to deliver the babies of women whose health during pregnancy had been badly neglected. It angered her to see how low a priority women’s health was, and it sparked a quiet but steely determination that she must do what she could to change the situation.

All Top Docs are obliged to do the Uncle Harry bit… While the Dafydd-blinkers remain firmly in place. Hundreds of women banged up in Denbigh. Josephine – Josephile?? – didn’t give a stuff.

It was this, rather than party politics – she was a Conservative and once considered standing for parliament, although when her husband chose to do so she canvassed for him instead – which made her passionately favour the NHS.

QUE???

It’s not as ludicrous as it sounds readers. The London medical schools are heaving with elitist, privileged Top Docs with dreadful attitudes towards the rest of the world but they are all Passionate About The NHS, even the ones like Josephine with huge private practices. Geoffrey Chamberlain loved the NHS. It gave him an excellent living, let him do exactly what he wanted and someone else was blamed every time that another bomb went off.

She saw that it could make a difference, particularly for women,because before it began men were insured but women did not get free treatment. She is remembered declaring angrily: “If a family was poor, the last thing it afforded was mum going to the doctor.”

There is a degree of truth there, but in most cases, if the family was poor, no-one could afford to go to the doctor. So why did most of Josephine’s colleagues oppose the creation of the NHS then?

Indeed, even in her mid-80s, and troubled with emphysema and other health problems, Barnes was quickly roused to passion and upset at what she saw happening to the health service.

They all are! It’s The Patients Who They Are Worried About! Anyone for Dafydd?

In retirement, she lived in Notting Hill and continued running her long-established private practice, until ill-health meant she had to stop. But although she is remembered for the dedicated attention she gave to patients, she kept her own breast cancer scare in the early 1990s to herself.

Her children were shocked to find out about it only after she had been in hospital to have a benign lump removed. Barnes’s modesty was legendary, but she also had a great appetite for fun and an occasional dose of glamour. Her delight was evident recently when she was invited to tea with the Queen, and afterwards she was full of the conversation she had had with Prince Philip, who sat next to her – an exchange marred only by a dog under the table nibbling her toe.

Josephine was just so angry at what was happening to all the Poor People, especially the women. An anger best expressed by tea at the Palace.

She is remembered also roaring up country lanes in the open sports car she bought herself and drove – she took it for a trial circuit at Brands Hatch – until she gave up driving aged 85.

While thinking about all those Poor People.

Given her commitment to the rights of women to have their particular health needs taken seriously,

So that’s why there is just so much dissatisfaction with women’s healthcare and has been for such a long time…

Dame Josephine has been remarkably little noted as a heroine of the feminist movement, presumably because she did not align herself that way.

It might be because they would find it very difficult to mould a heroine acceptable to them out of Josephine. They had great trouble doing it with Thatch. Jane Hutt couldn’t retain any credibility by unveiling a plaque commemorating Josephine.

But however she chose to describe herself,

She was a Lady Doctor.

she did a great deal to demonstrate that a woman could get to the top of her male-dominated profession, and to improve the healthcare of women in general.

She demonstrated that one well-connected, very hard working extremely determined woman could, while she told as many lies about the ‘healthcare of women’ as her male colleagues did. At no time did Dame Josephine mention the War.

Now here’s a fun thing, the obituary of Sir Brian Warren, Josephine’s ex-husband and the father of her children, as published in ‘The Independent’ on Aug 23, 1996. Just after William Hague announced the forthcoming Waterhouse Inquiry.

Brian Warren was one of the most prominent and fashionable London general practitioners of his day. It was his wit, warmth and no-nonsense wisdom (to which as his son-in-law for 15 years, I was privy) that made him so popular a doctor among his largely well-to-do patients, many of whom also inevitably became his lifelong friends.

Not least among them was Sir Edward Heath, who first became his patient as a young post-war Tory MP, and with whom Warren travelled the world a quarter of a century later as personal physician to the prime minister for four heady years. When Heath visited China in May 1974 it was his doctor and close friend whom he left behind to supervise the safe passage to London Zoo of two giant pandas, in the vain hope that they might breed in captivity.

Josephine’s husband was a friend of and Top Doc to Ted Heath! So Sir Brian concealed and colluded with organised abuse and could have answered those questions about Heath’s own activities; Warren undoubtedly knew everything that was happening…

Political soulmates, who differed only over Heath’s need to lose weight,
Good to know that Heath’s time as a disastrous PM, particularly with regard to N Ireland, was, in Sir Brian’s eyes, completely unproblematic, the biggest problem being Ted refusing to sign up for Fat Fighters.
prime minister and physician also shared a profound passion for music – happily symbolised during the Downing Street years by the after-dinner madrigals laid on by Warren’s other son-in-law, Martin Neary, organist and choirmaster of Winchester Cathedral, then Westminster Abbey.
Meanwhile Josephine became angrier and angrier about the plight of The Poor. Martin Gerard James Neary (born 28 March 1940) was Organist and Director of Music at Winchester Cathedral, 1972-88 and Organist and Master of the Choristers at Westminster Abbey, 1988-98. Neary read theology and music at Cambridge University. As the organist at Westminster Abbey, Neary was the musical director of the funeral service for Diana, for which he was appointed n LVO in 1998.

On 22 April 1998, Wesley Carr, the Dean of Westminster Abbey, dismissed Neary from his position at  Westminster Abbey on the grounds of gross misconduct regarding the finances of a company that he and his wife – Sir Brian and Dame Josephine’s daughter?? –  had set up to administer fees from concerts at the Abbey. Neary petitioned Lilibet, as Visitor of the Abbey, to resolve the dispute. Lilibet appointed Lord Charles Jauncey to be her Commissioner. Lord Jauncey determined that the summary dismissal was justified. The report also stated that Neary’s well recognised musical abilities and the hard work which he and his wife had done on behalf of the Abbey and the choir were not in question. So Neary and his wife were fiddling, but he’d done Di’s funeral and his father-in-law was Ted Heath’s Top Doctor and was involved with the Westminster Paedophile Ring, so no-one could be too rude about the Nearys.

  • The Martin Neary Singers recently made a nostalgic return to Downing Street at the dinner hosted by John Major in honour of Heath’s 80th birthday.
Sir Brian Warren, the Top Doc who hangs out with the PMs who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring… Including John Major who oversaw the massively rigged Waterhouse Inquiry, by which time Sir Brian had died, but Josephine was still appearing on TV.
 
Born in Toddington, Bedfordshire in 1914, the elder son of an East Anglian gentleman farmer, Warren inherited from his mother a lifelong love of the countryside in all its aspects. A countryman at heart, forced to live, work and garden primarily in the city, he could always identify the rarest bird and the most obscure flower. His knowledge of literature and music was as formidable, combining with his personal style to create an elegant gentleman of an unashamedly old school, proud of maintaining immaculate standards in every department of his life.
He might well have been a soldier or a politician rather than a general practitioner. From Bishop’s Stortford School he went to University College, London, to read History, only later transferring to Medicine at University College Hospital. At this time he met the talented young doctor whom he married in 1942, Josephine Barnes (now Dame Josephine, one of Britain’s most distinguished gynaecologists), with whom he had two daughters and a son. She was to be the first of Warren’s two wives; after their divorce in 1964 he married a fellow Westminster councillor, Anne Marsh, with whom he had two more sons before her untimely death in 1983.
Westminster City Council became notorious during the 1980s for endemic corruption, which reached its zenith under the leadership of Dame Shirley Porter. Readers might remember that Dame Shirley was caught bang to rights, fined millions and buggered off to live in Israel in order to evade paying the fine. Dame Shirley quietly returned to the UK a few years later.
The GLC and the Labour Party loathed Shirley Porter, but it didn’t matter how serious the corruption that was revealed, the Dame remained bulletproof. The Dame was a big fan of Thatch. As ever, none who desperately wanted to see the back of Dame Shirley would reveal the one thing that would have got rid of her: that Westminster City Council were colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and had been for years. Before St George’s Hospital relocated to Tooting in 1980, it was located in the constituency of Westminster City Council. There was even a Councillor for St George’s ward. Not a word about the serious wrongdoing. A number of Westminster City Councillors were of course Top Doctors. One of them being Ted Heath’s personal physician.

The majority of Warren’s distinguished war service, which earned him a mention in despatches, was spent on active service as medical officer to the 1st Battalion, Grenadier Guards. Among the first troops to enter Berlin in 1945, he was then transferred to Bonn as Deputy Director of Medical Services with the Guards Armoured Division.

There was probably quite a difference between Warren’s idea of a tumbledown house and most other people’s idea of a tumbledown house; the fact that it was in Belgravia is a bit of a giveaway. The Belgravia of St George’s Hospital, Sir Peter Morrison, the Duke of Westminster, Lord Lucan…

Never too much of a health fanatic, he was more of a common-sense doctor, believing quite literally that a little of what you fancy does you good.
Dafydd takes the same view with his more privileged patients. Kiddie sex, class A drugs, anything goes…
His tirelessly sympathetic bedside manner also helped to turn demanding patients into friends.
They were Prime Ministers living in Belgravia, Warren wasn’t going to run out of sympathy with them, no matter how much they whinged on about minor symptoms. It must have been useful having PMs as his mates as well.
As well as Heath, his early patients included the then editor of ‘The Times’, Sir William Haley and other rising young Tories such as Enoch Powell.
This is looking rather worrying for Warren and his Lady Doctor wife and their children and spouses/ex-spouses who are still with us. Heath has been the subject of a major police investigation and no matter how much ‘The Daily Mail’ and the Torygraph insult the people who made allegations that Heath himself was a child abuser, Heath definitely did conceal some very, very serious crimes against children and others. As for Enoch, well even his biggest fans admitted that he was an odd, difficult man. Less sympathetic people have made serious allegations and whatever the truth with regard to those are, like Heath, Powell concealed serious crime and was persuaded by someone for some reason to leave Dafydd and Gwynne well alone. Brian Warren knew the full story.
With the arrival of the National Health Service in 1948, Warren’s political convictions led him to remain in private practice,
Warren was someone who opposed the NHS then, unlike his wife who was fuming at the plight of the Poor in their slums. Warren was the sort of Top Doc who so angered Uncle Harry, Julian Tudor-Spart and Dannie Abse. The Socialist Medical Association will have had a great deal of dirt on Warren, his wife and those Prime Ministers who were patients of Warren’s. They never uttered a word, although Warren was a Tory who opposed Nye’s creation.
Listen to the sound of silence Poster | hoon_from_the_moon ...
as well as running for Westminister City Council, which he served with distinction for 30 years, many as chairman of the health committee.
Er, remember that paedophile ring which was facilitated by St George’s staff, including Dame Josephine’s colleague Geoffrey Chamberlain?
Warren was a leading long-serving member of a Council notorious for its corrupt practices…
In 1959, after four years as a local councillor, he made his one attempt to become an MP, with an inevitably doomed assault on Marcus Lipton’s Labour stronghold in Brixton.
Previous posts have discussed how the Councillors and MPs in south London facilitated the partner gangs of Dafydd’s gang who were operating in south London, sending kids in care to north Wales children’s homes, who were then trafficked back down to London as rent boys/sex workers. Marcus Lipton was one of those who colluded with it. The south London ring was being facilitated in particular by Top Docs from St George’s, Springfield and the Maudsley Hospitals and Wandsworth, Southwark and Lambeth Borough Councils. Other hospitals and Councils were colluding.

By the 1970s, when his old friend Ted Heath was elected to Downing Street, Warren was already a familiar and popular figure at senior Tory gatherings.

Warren’s old mate had become PM! Warren’s boat had well and truly come in then.

On Heath’s first day in office, he was summoned to attend to a cigarette burn inflicted by a dissident in the crowd as the new Prime Minister arrived at Tory Central Office.

That must have been a trauma for old Ted. I can imagine what would have been said to an Empowered Service User in Dafydd’s Denbigh Dungeon if they had sustained a cigarette burn and demanded that a Top Doc be summoned. Of course Empowered Service Users did sustain cigarette burns, constantly. Not from dissidents, but because Empowered Service Users are nearly all very heavy smokers and at the same time they are completely drugged up with anti-psychotics by the Top Docs, which results in loss of sensation from pain receptors. I used to watch as burning the ash from lit cigarettes would fall onto their fingers and hands and burn them without the Empowered Service Users realising until they had been injured, because they hadn’t felt anything. I saw Angels watching the same thing and I witnessed Top Docs sat in front of those patients who’s hands were covered in burns and said nothing about it.

Empowered Service Users in north Wales were frequently denied any treatment for anything, except of course for their Paranoid Schizophrenia, for which they would be loaded up with anti-psychotics… Kidney stones? Go and lie on your bed and stop making a fuss. Three day migraine? Go and lie down then, on that bed with a bright light directly above it which is switched on for 24 hours a day. Heart attack? There’s no-one in the place who knows what to do although it’s a hospital…

Meanwhile staff are going on Mindfulness retreats to Reduce Anxiety and Stress.

Kids in children’s homes in north Wales who had anal injuries were told by Top Docs that they had ‘piles’. Kids were bashed in the mouth with the buts of guns. Kids had broken bones and were not taken to a Top Doctor, not even one which would diagnose piles in the event of a ruptured anus.

Ooh you do look stressed Prime Minister, is it N Ireland again? Here, have a little sit down and de-stress for a while.

Standard Gov’t Issue Foot Spa, distributed to all Gov’t Ministers, Civil Service mandarins and Top Docs, as laid down by guidelines drawn up under Richard Crossman:

Foot or Heath, it didn’t matter, they were both concealing the crimes of Dafydd et al.

In Brussels, 18 months later, he was again on hand when an assailant threw a pot of printer’s ink at the prime minister as he arrived to sign the Treaty of Accession.

I remember watching that on TV. Since when has a bottle of ink spilt on one’s jacket needed a Top Doc? Wouldn’t a laundry person have been more appropriate?

Knighted in Heath’s farewell honours in 1974,

For services rendered. Josephine became a Dame as well, although she and Brian had been divorced for ten years.

Warren remained characteristically loyal to his old friend during the trials of the Thatcher years, while also maintaining friendships with other senior Tories who survived the transition, notably Lords Whitelaw and Pym.

Whitelaw has featured frequently on this blog. He concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al for decades and decades, including during both of his goes at being Home Secretary, both of his goes at being Lord President of the Council, as Chairman of the Tory Party and as Deputy PM. Willie colluded with the elite paedophile ring at Kincora when he served as N Ireland Secretary. Willie was mates with Trumpers, who in turn was mates with Jimmy Savile and appointed Savile to the general management task force for Broadmoor. See previous posts.

Francis Pym dared dissent from Thatcherism, formed Centre Forward and was never heard of again. I will return to Francis Pym in a future blog post.

Not until the late 1970s did Warren begin to wind down his practice, gradually returning to his first loves of reading and music, gardening and travel…

Harold Brian Seymour Warren, general practitioner: born Toddington, Bedfordshire 19 December 1914; Personal Physician to the Prime Minister 1970-74; kt 1974; married 1942 Josephine Barnes (marriage dissolved 1964; one son, two daughters), 1964 Anne Marsh (died 1983; two sons); died London 18 August 1996.

 

The son-in-law of Sir Brian’s who penned that obituary for Warren was Anthony Holden, known for writing toadying books about the Royals. Anthony Holden was born in Southport, Lancashire and educated at Oundle School and Merton College, Oxford. A number of key people linked with Dafydd et al, including Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, went to Oundle. See previous posts.

Holden worked as a journalist for many years. He began his career as a graduate trainee on Thomson Regional Newspapers’ ‘Hemel Hempstead Evening Post-Echo’. Holden covered the trial at St Albans of the ‘psychopathic poisoner’, Graham Young. Young was in the hands of Dafydd’s mates at Broadmoor, so whoever could know what the truth behind the Graham Young case was? Holden will have known that those proffering their opinions on Young were a gang of sex abusers who regularly lied on oath, forged records and planted evidence.

Holden was named Young Journalist of the Year in 1972 and was on the staff of ‘The Sunday Times’, 1973–79. Ted Heath’s Top Doc’s son-in-law. Holden was commended in the British Press Awards in 1976 as News Reporter of the Year for his work in N Ireland – Ted Heath’s Top Doc’s son-in-law – and won Columnist of the Year in 1977. Holden was Washington Correspondent and US editor of ‘The Observer’, 1979–81, Assistant Editor of ‘The Times’, 1981–82, Executive Editor, ‘Today’, 1985–86 and chief classical music critic of ‘The Observer’, 2002–08.

Ted Heath’s Top Doc’s son-in-law.

In 1999–2000 Holden was an inaugural Fellow of the Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library. Holden was a member of the Board of Governors of the South Bank Centre, 2002–8, during the landmark renovation programme under the Chairmanship of Lord Hollick. Since 2006 Holden has been a Trustee of Shakespeare North Trust.

Holden has also made frequent appearances on TV, presenting such documentaries as Charles at Forty (ITV, 1988), Anthony Holden on Poker (BBC 2, 1991) and Who Killed Tchaikovsky? (Omnibus, BBC 1, 1993). In the mid-1980s Holden presented a weekly BBC Radio 4 chat show, In the Air.

Holden’s papers are collected at Boston University’s Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center.

Can Anthony Holden now tell all with regard to the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the branch of it that destroyed north Wales, which ‘didn’t exist’ throughout all those years that his in-laws Sir Brian and Dame Josephine helped facilitate it?

Perhaps the offspring of Sir Brian and Dame Josephine could add to Anthony’s account…

I didn’t know your in-laws Holden, but I did work with their colleagues and friends and they should never have been allowed near the rest of the human race.

The President of the Medical Women’s Federation, 1992-93, was Wimmin’s Feminist Hero, Wendy Savage, who has featured previously on this blog (see eg. ‘The BMA and It’s Ethics’. Wendy Savage was much feted by wimmin in the 1980s when a huge dust up between Savage and her Head of Dept, resulted in Savage being suspended from work, after allegations of incompetence. There was only one way in which the story was reported in the media; it was a fight between a Woman who was giving other Wimmin choices in childbirth against a Male Medical Establishment that was forcing hi-tech births on Wimmin. The truth was that Savage and her Head of Dept hated each other and he would have done anything to get her out of her job. She won’t have been anymore incompetent than some of her colleagues, the charges will have been trumped up, but there were some very worrying aspects to Wendy Savage that never found their way into the media.
Wendy Savage worked at the London Hospital in Tower Hamlets and Dafydd’s ring were operating on that patch. She knew about it and said nothing. One reason why some Top Docs in London really disapproved of Wendy Savage was that she was known to be giving the same patients repeated abortions. Not just two or three times but 14 or 15 times. I was in the audience of a lecture given by Wendy Savage at St George’s in 1990 when she openly discussed doing this. She was angrily confronted by other Top Docs who told her that was she was doing was completely unacceptable. One female Top Doc was in tears. Another Top Doc walked out. Wendy was unrepentant.
Think of it. Wendy Savage was working with poor, uneducated women who from their early or mid-teens were repeatedly becoming pregnant, although they were in a terrible state and could not have ever cared for a baby; they didn’t even have anywhere to live. Dafydd’s gang were at work in the area. As with Dafydd’s colleagues in north Wales, the problems of these young women were attributed by Wendy to their ‘chaotic, dysfunctional lives’. Those women were in the hands of a trafficking gang, which Geoffrey Chamberlain and colleagues were facilitating at the London end of the business. Wendy Savage was friends with Chamberlain and much was made of Chamberlain’s support for Wendy Savage when WW III began after she was suspended from work.
Wendy Savage isn’t looking like quite so much of a Wimmin’s Champ now is she?
Wendy Savage knew what was going on, she knew all about it and was friends with those involved.
Wendy the Wimmin’s Champ also knew that women in north Wales were being unlawfully denied abortions and were being forced into the hands of a dangerous private abortionist or a sex trafficker. She said nothing.

Savage read medicine at Girton College, Cambridge. She qualified in 1960 and was the first woman consultant to be appointed in obstetrics and gynaecology at the London Hospital. She has worked in the United States of America, Nigeria, Kenya, and New Zealand. In New Zealand she set up an abortion service before the law was liberalised. Does that mean ‘when abortion was illegal’ Wendy?

Wendy was an elected member of the GMC for more than 16 years. As the complaints about Dafydd et al rolled in and were not acted upon, as documentation was forged…

Savage was shortlisted for the BMJ Group Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009.

Savage’s wiki entry tells us that ‘In 1985, she was accused of incompetence by the Professor in her Department (Professor Jurgis Gediminas Grudzinskas) and suspended from her post at the London Hospital Medical College, but she was cleared of all charges and reinstated in 1986 following a high-profile enquiry. A BMJ editorial concluded that a clash of personalities had led to the charges against Dr Savage.

“Mrs Savage’s strongly held and voiced opinions on women’s rights to a say in their method of delivery and in their rights to abortion made her a public and at times controversial figure; rumours of other sources of conflict with her colleagues have ranged from style of dress to private practice.”

Savage herself wrote about her experiences. Her later book, Birth and Power, revisits the issues which her suspension raised’.

Wendy Savage is a publicly elected Governor for Islington in the Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust and was further elected by her fellow Governors to serve on the Remuneration and Nominations Committee, which then chose her as Chair of that Committee. She was also elected by Governors to serve on the Council of Governors’ Steering Committee.

Camden and Islington was not only the stronghold of the Bloomsbury Group and years later New Labour, but the poor parts of that area were notorious for brothels and prostitution. Islington and Camden were host to a paedophile ring with links to Dafydd’s gang and to the Westminster Paedophile Ring. The mental health services in Islington and Camden colluded with the paedophile ring. As in north Wales, the ring in Islington was run by gangsters so nasty that witnesses were murdered.

In 2004, when those terrible Gov’t figures for suicide were released which confirmed that Dr Tony Roberts’s patch in north Wales had the highest suicide rate for women in England and Wales except for one other area, it was explained that the only area with an even higher suicide rate for women was Camden. It won’t have been the residents of Hampstead dropping like flies, it will have been the Empowered Service Users who had the chaotic, dysfunctional lives as they were terrorised by gangsters working with Top Doctors.

In 2017, the Mail On Sunday published a critical article with regard to Wendy Savage’s stance on abortion. The BPAS told the Indie which wrote about the Mail on Sunday’s story that it was “totally appalled” by the Mail on Sunday’s front page “demonising Wendy Savage, a doctor who has devoted her life to supporting pregnant women.” The Indie further quoted the BPAS as saying: “We stand by Wendy Savage and are forever grateful for all she has done for pregnant women over a career spanning decades.”

A vicious international trafficking gang targeting children and vulnerable women as well as men. They killed one of my friends, tried to kill Brown and his brother and tried to kill me because I said no to sex with the two disgusting old Top Docs running the north Wales part of it. Wendy was friends with the people running the bit in London.

When I was working at St George’s, I found out that a lot of medical students, male and female, didn’t like Wendy Savage, but nobody would ever explain why…

 Wendy Savage is a high profile supporter of the Labour Party and God do they like having a Socialist Top Doctor on their side.
When Wendy Savage was battling with her boss back in the 1980s, I had no idea at all that Top Docs in London were involved with Dafydd. I have explained in previous posts that during 1987, Dafydd was ringing me up in Leicester trying to get me to drop my complaint about him. He told me that if I didn’t withdraw the complaint he would have me arrested and imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre. I laughed in his face so he changed tactics and later told me how wonderful I was and that if I dropped my complaint about him he would get me a place at Liverpool Medical School. Dafydd named the Professor who would fix it all up. I was so gobsmacked that I just ended the call. Before Dafydd made his wonderful offer, he told me that I reminded him of Wendy Savage, a ‘robust, clever woman’ and he then said ‘they’ve had to reinstate her, she’s beaten them all, I feel like writing to her and congratulating her’. I asked Dafydd ‘So why haven’t you?’ and Dafydd changed the conversation.
I was always told of Dafydd’s serious criminal associates ‘we all know who they are, but there is never anything on paper’. Not even a letter of congratulation to one of them for getting away with it and being constructed as a Wimmin’s Champ…
Wendy Savage wrote the foreword to Dr Ann Dally’s account of her Own True Story regarding Dally’s ordeal at the hands of the Male Medical Establishment. Ann Dally found herself in hot water in the 1980s after she was found to be flogging class A drugs to anyone who could afford to pay. Like Dafydd, Dally offered a full service, including Reports for the Court and Social Services etc. Dally’s husband Peter was Princess Margaret’s Top Doctor. Wendy was right behind Ann Dally, although Wendy Opposes Private Practice and Ann and Peter Dally were Harley Street Docs who gave up NHS work when they were young. The man who extracted Ann Dally from trouble was Bing Spear, the corrupt Civil Service mandarin who for years was the mandarin at the top of the Home Office’s Drugs Branch. Bing was also the man who looked after Dafydd. Ann Dally was suspended by the GMC but reinstated. See post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’.
Bing Spear died in July 1995, four days apart from the discovery of Peter Morrison’s dead body. Brown was sacked from his job at Aston University in the same month. In north Wales, Tony Francis was planning to have me transferred to a secure unit because of the ‘danger’ that I represented to Dafydd. Dafydd ‘retired’ from the NHS in July 1995… See post ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’
What was the REAL reason for Prof Wendy Savage’s Head of Dept, Prof Grudzinskas, suspending her and fighting tooth and nail to prevent her from teaching again when he was forced to reinstate her? Savage was suspended in 1985. The year that I fell out with Tony Francis and began contacting MPs about the north Wales mental health services.
Prof Grudzinskas, the man who tried to end Savage’s career, now works at St George’s Hospital.

Wendy Savage was Co-chair of the pressure group Keep Our NHS Public. Keep Our NHS Public (KONP) is a campaigning organisation, with local groups across England, committed to reversing the ongoing privatisation of the NHS and its services. The group was founded in 2005 by the NHS Consultants Association, the NHS Support Federation and Health Emergency. KONP has local groups which are involved in campaigns against the closure or reorganisation of local hospitals, such as the Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign. Lewisham Hospital had an appalling safety record and was millions and millions in debt. None of the ‘turn-around’ plans had worked over many years. Lewisham Hospital is located on the turf of the south London gang linked to Dafydd et al. KONP attracted support from many existing health related campaigns such as Save Finsbury Health Centre. Finsbury in Islington that is… KONP has been very vocal in denouncing the use of private health providers to treat patients outside the health service.

The NHS Support Federation is a pressure group, founded in 1989 which campaigns “to protect and improve the NHS, keeping it true to its founding principles.” It is based in Brighton and helped to establish the Keep Our NHS Public campaign. Uncle Harry aka Professor Harry Keen was the President of the Federation and an active member for many years. The NHS Support Federation monitors the NHS tendering processes. Jeremy Corbyn cited the work of the Federation in his re-election campaign in 2016 as showing that £16 billion in NHS contracts had been awarded “through the market” since April 2013. Jeremy is an Islington MP and has also served as a member of an NHS Authority for the Islington and Camden area.

In 2018 Wendy Savage was awarded the BMJ Award for Outstanding Contribution to Health. After I had blogged about her and her colleagues…
If I was you lot, I’d fuck off and keep quiet, never mind giving each other any more silly awards. You have been revealed for what you are.
Say what you like about Uncle Harry and his mates, they were committed to the NHS and they really were determined to save it from the Tories. They did all they could to fight those who wanted to Destroy The NHS With Cuts. Honest, they did…

Stations of the Crass

My post ‘A Message Of Peace For Christmas ‘ discussed how Pat Pottle and Michael Randle, two CND activists who lived at Croesor in Gwynedd for many years and worked for Bertrand Russell and the Committee of 100, helped the double agent George Blake escape from Wormwood Scrubs in 1966, yet weren’t prosecuted until June 1991, shortly after Dafydd’s gang made yet another attempt at imprisoning me on the basis of their perjury. Pat and Michael were prosecuted as a result of pressure from more than 100 Tory MPs. The prosecution occurred when Dafydd and the gang were under pressure as a result of demands that a police investigation should take place into the possibility that a VIP paedophile ring was operating in north Wales/Cheshire. At the same time, the gang was causing havoc at UCNW by launching an offensive against Graham Day, a senior sociologist who was Not Of The Gang, accusing him of racism when making appointments. ‘The Guardian’ assisted by printing a libellous article about Graham. The gang had a field day. See post ‘Badlands’.

My trial too was at the Royal Courts of Justice in The Stand, where Pottle and Randle stood trial, but some two months before theirs. Bertrand Russell and his friends had drawn upon the services of Dafydd et al in a previous generation. See eg. posts ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’.

Among the many rumours surrounding George Blake’s escape were that it had been organised by CND or the KGB, that Vanessa Redgrave had put up the money for it and that Pat and Michael had help from the inside. In ‘A Message Of Peace At Christmas’ I explain why it is fairly clear that the security services themselves, or at least someone linked with them, helped with Blake’s escape. Bertrand Russell’s circle was full of people who had links to the security services and they were assisting Dafydd’s gang because of the presence of prominent members of the British establishment who were directly involved in organised abuse or colluding with it because members of their family and friends were directly involved.

Michael Randle was associated for a long time with the controversial Dept of Peace Studies at Bradford University. Randle did a degree and a PhD with that Dept and then returned to work there as a Research Fellow; he was working in the Dept of Peace Studies before his trial. Randle stepped down when it was confirmed that he would be standing trial, but returned to work at the Dept of Peace Studies at a later date.

The Dept of Peace Studies at Bradford was subjected to an attempt to close it by Thatch and Keith Joseph in the early 1980s, but as we shall see, it not only survived their onslaught but thrived and expanded. The VC of Bradford at the time of the Gov’t row over the Peace Studies Dept was Prof John C. West. Like Sir Melvin Rosser, the former President of Aberystwyth University, the internet seems to have been virtually cleansed of references to John C. West, but I’m not sure when this happened or why. However, Prof West’s portrait appears on a website displaying the work of an artist called Tom Wood, the portrait being dated 1989, so West was still the VC then…

    Lord Ken is a Labour historian of whom the right wing of the Labour Party is fond, but Lord Ken really hates the Marxist historians because they took the piss out of him in public one day. Lord Ken was married to the late Jane Morgan, the criminologist specialising in ‘child victims of crime’ who grew up in Wrexham and during the course of her career passed through Leicester University, when that institution was run by people covering up for the crimes of Greville Janner and his mates and Oxford University when they were keeping schtum about organised abuse as well. See previous posts eg. ‘A Bit More Paleontology’. Abersytwyth University has a long tradition of producing law graduates who evolved into crooked solicitors, barristers and judges who protected serious criminals, including Dafydd’s gang.
  • Sir Michael Thompson, Vice-Chancellor
    Sir Michael Thompson, Vice-Chancellor, Birmingham University (1987-96)

    Sir Michael Warwick Thompson (born 1 June 1931) was educated at the University of Liverpool; his time there overlapped with Dafydd’s, although Thompson was studying physics. His academic work included early research on atomic collisions. The atomic collisions continued when Thompson was appointed Professor of Experimental Physics at Sussex University in 1965. He remained at Sussex until 1980, during which time he served as PVC and acting VC. Thompson was a Sussex big wig under the regime of Harold Wilson’s mate Asa Briggs, the VC of Sussex University, 1967-76, who worked for the security services and concealed the Brighton end of Dafydd and John Allen’s trafficking ring. Asa opened fire on Merfyn Jones when Merfyn was a Sussex student in 1967 and continued the firing when Merfyn became VC of Bangor University in 2004. See post ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’.

    In 1980 Thompson was appointed VC of the University of East Anglia, remaining in post until 1987 when he was appointed VC of Birmingham University, retiring in 1996. Thompson was VC of Birmingham University when Birmingham School of Medicine employed Dafydd and Tony Francis’s mate Robert Bluglass as Professor of Forensic Medicine and also housed Tony Francis’s mate Professor Ian Brockington. See post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’. Bluglass actively concealed the criminal wrongdoing of Dafydd, Tony Francis and the gang while Thompson was VC. See previous posts eg. ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’.

    Thompson was knighted in 1991, which was the year in which I and three other witnesses to the gang’s crimes had our careers destroyed. In Feb 1991, just after I had been forced out of my job at St George’s Hospital Medical School, Lilibet knighted Peter Morrison, the Tory MP for Chester, who was abusing kids in care in north Wales and elsewhere.

    Professor Thompson is a member of the Athenaeum, as was Jimmy Savile. I’m sure that they enjoyed many happy hours in each other’s company.

    Michael Thompson’s son Paul Warwick Thompson is Rector of the Royal College of Art.

    Tom Wood painted Lord Bob Winston. Twice. Lord Bob knew Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain and his colleagues at St George’s who were concealing the crimes of Dafydd and the gang in north Wales as well as the trafficking ring in south London which was linked to Dafydd’s gang. Lord Bob also knew of much research fraud and bad practice in his own institution of Hammersmith Hospital but kept quiet. Lord Bob was very aware of bad practice in IVF clinics other than his own and the most outrageous scams which were relieving patients of money but said nothing about that either. Here’s Lord Bob in casual dress:
  • Robert Maurice Lipson Winston, Baron Winston

    And here’s Lord Bob in gear appropriate to his role as Chancellor of Sheffield Hallam University, 2001-18.

    Lord Robert Winston (b.1940), Chancellor of Sheffield Hallam University from 2001

     

    Lord Bob was succeeded as Chancellor of Sheffield Hallam by St Helena of the Kennedys this year. Like Lord Bob, St Helena for years worked closely with those at St George’s Hospital Medical School who were facilitating the trafficking ring in south London linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales/Cheshire. See previous posts eg. ‘Eve Was Framed – As Were A Lot Of Other People’ and ‘Close Your Eyes And Make A WISH’.

    If any readers know why two of the ‘most respected’ Labour peers who both colluded with a pan-European VIP trafficking gang are cluttering up the highest echelons at Sheffield Hallam University, please do let me know.

     

  • Bradford was the first British university to appoint a Chair of Peace Studies, Adam Curle, in 1973. Charles Thomas William Curle was known as “Adam” after the town where he was born, L’Isle-Adam, north of Paris. Adam Curle was related to members of the Bloomsbury Set, many of whom holidayed or had second homes in Croesor, Gwynedd throughout the middle decades of the 20th century, as a result of Clough Williams-Ellis, a local landowner, marrying Amabel Strachey, a member of the family at the centre of the Bloomsbury Set. See previous posts eg. ‘The Village’, ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’. Adam’s mother was Cordelia Fisher. One of her sisters, Adeline, married the composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, who was a friend of Bertrand Russell. Curle was also related to Virginia Woolf and the artist Vanessa Bell. See post ‘The Vermin Club’ for details of their wider network. Curle was also a relation of the historian Frederic William Maitland and the photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. Curle’s father Richard was a journalist, writer and friend of Joseph Conrad of ‘Heart of Darkness’ fame.
    Curle went to school at Charterhouse and then studied anthropology at New College, Oxford, an institution which the British security services favoured when recruiting (see post ‘A Study In Tyranny’). He married Pamela Hobson in 1939 and the couple had two daughters, Christina and Anna, although they divorced some years later. Curle served in the British Army during WW II and towards the end of his time in the Army, he became closely acquainted with the psychological traumas of conflict when working with prisoners of war in the Civil Resettlement Unit. Between 1947-1950, Curle worked at the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations, London, 1947-50. See previous posts for the rotten foundations of the Tavi and the numerous Top Docs associated with the Tavi, including those who worked with Curle, who concealed organised abuse and trained people who were involved in future scandals.
    Curle subsequently lectured in social psychology at Oxford University and in 1952 was appointed Professor of Education and Psychology at the then University College of the South West of England, which became the University of Exeter. Curle was therefore in Devon during the 1950s, when Plymouth was dominated by Michael Foot’s family, who concealed organised abuse linked to the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See post ‘The Bay Of Pigs Invasion’. Jeremy Thrope was elected the MP for north Devon in 1959 and then the county really saw some action.

    In the later 1950s Curle travelled extensively and while advising the Pakistan Planning Commission on Social Affairs, he met a New Zealand community health worker in East Pakistan, Anne Edie, who became his second wife, with whom he had a third daughter, Deborah. Anne and Adam joined the Quakers while Adam was serving as a Professor of Education at the University of Ghana. In 1962 Curle set up the Harvard Center for Studies in Education and Development at Harvard University and travelled widely, including to Nigeria, Tunisia, Central America and Barbados. Between 1967-70, Curle mediated in the Nigerian Civil War and also in the Pakistan-Indian War.

    In 1973 Curle was appointed as Professor of Peace Studies at Bradford, the Dept being established by Curle and a small number of Quakers. One of the key members of Dafydd’s gang, Owain Gethin Evans, the de facto Head of Children’s Services for Gwynedd County Council throughout most of the time between 1982-95 (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’) while the gang did whatever they wanted to kids in care, was a Quaker in Gwynedd, as was Dr Paul Nickson, a GP in Bethesda who actively colluded with the abuse of children and psych patients. Previous posts have detailed other Quakers and institutions run by Quakers outside of north Wales who had links with Quakers in north Wales. Dafydd himself turned up on a Quakers website a few years ago dispensing his wisdom as a Top Doc.

    After Curle retired from Bradford in 1978, under Quaker auspices his “tools for transformation” (including mediation, problem-solving, negotiation, policy analysis, advocacy and nonviolent activism) were put to work in conflict states such as Zimbabwe, South Africa, N Ireland, Sri Lanka and the Balkans. Curle helped set up the Centre for Peace, Non-violence and Human Rights, an NGO based in Osijek, Croatia during the Balkans Conflict,  1991-95. In 2000 Curle was the recipient of the Gandhi Foundation International Peace Award.

    Besides Quakerism, Adam Curle had an interest in Tibetan Buddhism and the Dalai Lama.

    A great many people involved with Professor Mark Williams’s Mindfulness, which was a research fraud perpetrated by Williams when he worked with Dafydd’s gang in Bangor in the late 1980s (see post ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot’), are involved with Buddhism. However I have noticed that the Buddhist contingent are the very people who soon begin asking questions about Mark Williams and raising concerns…

     

    Adam Curle died in September 2006 in London. He had ‘been ill for about a week with a very virulent leukaemia’. Leukaemia doesn’t usually kill people within a week, it is something which takes a very long time. So it is likely that if Adam did have leukaemia, he had had it for ages and wasn’t told. Or it was something else which killed him. The paedophiles’ friends were beginning to panic again in 2006 because Brown and I had begun appearing in print discussing the mental health services. Over the next three years or so there was an influx of paedophiles’ friends into the Welsh Assembly. See post ‘The Battle Of The Cowshed’.

     Curle’s 2006 obituary in ‘The Guardian’ filled in the picture further:
  • those who knew [Adam] as friends, students, colleagues, peace activists, or simply through reading his books, were inspired by his gentle charisma to spread the values of peace through education and action…he was also innovative and courageous as a peacemaker, pioneering citizen mediation and peace building.

    After the war he worked at the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations in London, helping to resettle British servicemen who had been prisoners of war.

    ...Then came the invitation to lead the new Bradford department – itself the idea of a small group of Quakers.

    Adam retired from Bradford in 1978 but worked on as a peacemaker, often under Quaker auspices, putting into practice the idea that education was concerned with emancipation. This value was also embodied in the principle of “speaking truth to power” asserted by Quakers. 

  • Adam was related to and worked with privileged powerful people who were involved in organised abuse and managed not to speak the truth about this to anyone. He was ‘invited’ to establish that Dept at Bradford in 1973. Bradford was on the turf of a big paedophile/trafficking ring associated with serious organised crime which involved Jimmy Savile; Savile was a visitor to Bryn Estyn and his mates in Yorkshire had close links with Dafydd and the gang in north Wales, who by 1973 were rapidly expanding business. It was in 1973 that Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth relocated from Axwell Park Approved School, part of the ring in the north east of England linked to the Yorkshire ring, to Bryn Estyn. Matt Arnold replaced Peter Burton in March 1973 as Head of Bryn Estyn after Burton had been killed in a road accident, along with his wife, young son and the Deputy Head of Bryn Estyn. Arnold died from an ‘unspecified blood disease’ in June 1994, four days before Howarth’s trial for sexually abusing boys in his care began.
  • In 1973/74, there was a local authority reorganisation in Wales, which was used as an opportunity to increase organised abuse. Ioan Bowen Rees was appointed as County Solicitor for the newly created Dyfed County Council. A ring with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales flourished in Dyfed; in 1980 Ioan was appointed Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council and it was then that the party really began. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’

 

Questions were constantly asked of this lot, it wasn’t as if people were unconcerned about their activities. The response was always the same; after the How Very Dare Yous, concerned people would be reminded that the alleged abusers were Eminent Doctors/Famous Artists/Writers/Posher than the rest of us. Betrand Russell got away with a great deal until the day that he died by simply reminding people that he was Very Clever and also Earl Russell. See previous posts eg. ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’ The same strategy was still being used by Russell’s mates many years after his death. I was introduced to an Alternative Person in Gwynedd some 10 years ago and one of the first things that I was told was ‘she lives in Bertrand Russell’s old house’. It was an interesting talking point, but it was fairly clear from the conversation that followed that the person in question and her mates had no idea about some aspects of Russell’s life. What they did know was that he was a Clever Philosopher and a Peace Activist.

I had this sort of thing thrown at me for years when I raised concerns about people who’s wrongdoing I now know to have been even more serious than I realised. It really is incredibly foolish to believe that someone in possession of a medical degree or who has published philosophy books cannot be involved in wrongdoing. I can certainly understand why people might be gobsmacked to be told that such a person is sexually molesting people on a vast scale and bribing and blackmailing people to keep quiet about it, but when evidence is produced that this is indeed happening and it transpires there have already been numerous complaints of the same nature, an investigation needs to take place. I note with some irony that when Baker and Brown were observed to be Clever and Qualified themselves, everybody DID remind themselves that Clever Qualified people can be Wicked and Manipulative. But not Dafydd obviously.

So in 1973, a PR unit for people involved in organised abuse was set up in Bradford University by Adam Curle, who was supported in this venture by a small group of Quakers.

  •  It is not easy to capture in words the deep affection that people formed for this extraordinary man. He was warm, humorous, modest and wise in equal measure. Visitors were welcomed by him and Anne, whether in America, Yorkshire or, in his later years, in retirement in London. Their hospitality was legendary. Both were avid gardeners and grew the vegetables that graced the dishes cooked by Anne, to the delight of their many guests.

The vegetables will no doubt have been organic and ‘oooh the dinner was lovely and we read poetry over that gorgeous bottle of wine… all of us being committed to peace and justice…’ People renowned for their hospitality are able to cultivate a big network of other people who join in with the How Very Dare Yous in the event of questions being asked…

  • In his early years, Adam played the flute, and maintained a love of music throughout his life.
  • Jeremy Thrope was noted for being an excellent violin player. A love of music is another sign of a Sensitive person who by definition wouldn’t ever do anything unpleasant to anyone else.
  • A deeply spiritual man, remaining a Quaker but influenced also by the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhism in recent years, he was never pious or doctrinaire…He is survived by Anne, his daughters Christina, Anna and Deborah, and several grandchildren and great grandchildren.

The Journal of Conflictology published a tribute to and an account of the life of Adam Curle in 2010, by Tom Woodhouse. Highlights included:

This article presents a biographical account of Adam Curle, focusing especially on the development of his ideas on peace and peace studies and the impact these had on the evolution of the field at the level of theory and of practice. Curle was the founding Professor of the Department of Peace Studies at the University of Bradford in the UK. Appointed to the Chair in 1973, the department launched its teaching and research programmes in 1974.

1974 was the year in which the new County Councils came into being in Wales. 1974 also saw the return of Harold Wilson as PM and Leo Abse and other members of the Westminster Paedophile Ring busied themselves hurrying the Children Act through Parliament which was on the statute books the following year and ensured that hundreds of kids were handed over to Dafydd’s gang, as well of course to other gangs providing ‘care’ for kids. See post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’.

Curle’s influence on the department and his development of a theory and practice of peace and peacemaking is traced and analysed in this article. His theory of peace was based on a synthesis of academic perspectives drawing on psychology, anthropology and development theory, and on the early peace theory of other innovators in the field of peace studies, including Johan Galtung and Kenneth Boulding. His peace practice was based on the experience of large scale conflict in the Nigerian Civil War and the India Pakistan conflict in the 1960s and 1970s, and was distinguished by his use of non-official or track two mediation as a complement to formal diplomacy in such conflicts. His use of mediation was modified later when, in the 1990s, in the context of the civil war in the Balkans, he helped to mobilise support for local people who wished to resist the civil war and to build peaceful communities and cultures of peace. In this way he also pioneered the idea of peace building from below, currently recognised as a leading mode of peacemaking amongst academics and practitioners.

Evidence from Yemen suggests that Adam Curle’s pioneering efforts in terms of peacemaking and conflict resolution have not been very effective.

The man causing the grief in Syria is of course a Top Doctor who undertook his postgraduate training at a London Medical School. See previous posts.
 …In 1935 he went to Oxford to study history but switched to anthropology

in the course of his first year. He conducted field research in various areas of the Middle East for which he obtained a Diploma in Anthropology,

So Adam didn’t complete his degree and left with a booby prize instead…

and then spent six years, from 1939 to 1945, serving in the Army, and in this period became interested in the work of the Tavistock Institute for Human
Relations, particularly in their approach to the sociopsychological problems of post-war reconstruction…

Despite the hype, the Tavi, like the Maudsley, really were not fussy with regard to the students whom they accepted, principally because those institutions and the disciplines which they were promoting had so little status and respect that all comers were welcome.

His first academic publication was for the Human Relations journal and described the special problems of prisoners of war as they adapted to the strains of returning to normal community. He was awarded a postgraduate degree in anthropology in 1947, worked for the Tavistock Institute on a project on rural decay and was appointed lecturer in social psychology at Oxford in 1950.

It was rather like the Masters degree courses which British universities began offering in a big way in the 1980s for which one did not need a first degree before one enrolled. The rationale was that able older people who had experience in other fields should not have to be treated as if they were teenagers who had just left school, but the desire of HE institutions to acquire bums on seats led to some surreal events. The Tavi was desperate so standards were remarkably flexible.

During this time he became interested in the link between social psychology and education policy, and in 1952, at the age of 36, he was appointed to the Chair of Education and Psychology at the University of Exeter.

Except that it wasn’t yet the University of Exeter; it was aspiring to be and Exeter still had a very questionable reputation in the late 1970s…

Between 1956 and 1959 he served as consultant in Pakistan on issues of education and development policy. Between 1959 and 1961 he was Professor of Education at the University of Ghana, and from 1961 until his appointment to the Chair of Peace Studies at the University of Bradford in 1973, he was Director of the Harvard Centre for Studies in Education and Development…

I only know one academic who has been to Harvard and that is someone who did a lot of very interesting things like join the Committee of 100 as a schoolgirl and end up in Holloway after a CND demo because no-one realised that she was only 15. When she was at postgrad level she won a scholarship to Harvard and after a few months she walked out. She maintained that Harvard has been the centre of a massive amount of undeserved hype, it has a tick box culture of the worst and it is full of people who have brought their way in.

So imagine my surprise when I found out that Grace Lewis-Parry, a member of the Betsi Board who had for years been a particularly dozy senior Angel employed in north Wales where she presided over terrible things, including the sexual assault of female patients by staff, births so badly handled that babies had died and mothers had been left seriously injured – Grace has a background in women’s health – somehow got onto a management course at Harvard. Grace would never have even thought of that herself, I’d be most interested to find out how that was arranged. Just take a look at what has happened at the Betsi since Grace was appointed Board Secretary. It’s enough to justify closing Harvard down.

Uncle Harry’s nephew completed a stint at Harvard:

Official portrait of Edward Miliband crop 2.jpg

Grace only zoomed off to Harvard relatively recently, at about the same time that Uncle Harry’s nephew and his associates were trying to cause a great deal of trouble for anyone who dared point to the genocide in the north Wales NHS. Do you know how a hopelessly incompetent, not very highly qualified Angel who managed NHS services with some of the worst mortality rates in Europe was accepted by Harvard Ed? After I gained documentary evidence and a recording of her refusing to address a serious complaint that I had made, involving staff assaulting me, perjuring themselves and then unlawfully refusing me all medical care?

 

…during the intensive and searing experiences of the Biafran War he felt a
compelling need to understand more about why these conflicts
happened…Three major studies in which these changed perceptions are hardened into substantial analyses are Education for Liberation,
Making Peace and Mystics and Militants. Making Peace was written in the course of a sabbatical year spent as a visiting research fellow at the Richardson Institute of Conflict and Peace Research in London in 1969-1970…

His time at Harvard saw him concerned with development in over twenty countries in the Middle East, North and Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean and Asia. He was able to draw from his period as an early staff
member of the Tavistock Institute and from two university appointments in psychology.

The grateful Johnny Foreigners in those developing countries will not have been aware of how flaky Curle and his mentors were; they will have been told that an Expert and a British Expert at that was going to show them how things were done. Exactly the same situation prevails today with some UK academics receiving huge grants to Share Knowledge with people in Hot Countries and very questionable knowledge too. Professor Catherine Robinson received millions to dispense words of wisdom in India with regard to suicide prevention. Catherine is a former colleague of Dafydd’s and has spent her entire career working in north Wales which has one of the highest suicide rates in the UK. Catherine works with the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and has done so throughout the many scandals regarding patient neglect and abuse as well as repeated concerns over the number of mental health patients killing themselves. I was not the only person who’s jaw dropped on hearing the news that someone had given Catherine a lot of money on the basis of her expertise in suicide prevention.

 

…Curle had been deeply involved in the practice of peacemaking. In the 1990s much of this involvement took the form of supporting the activity of the Osijek Centre for Peace, Nonviolence and Human Rights. Osijek, a town in the Eastern Slavonia province of Croatia, was, with the adjacent town
of Vukovar, the site of the most violent fighting of the Serb Croat War. This involvement with the people of Osijek, who were trying to rebuild a tolerant society while surrounded by enraged and embittered feelings caused by the war, motivated a considerable amount of reflection by Curle on the problems of practical peacemaking. It was apparent, for example, that the model of mediation specified in his book, In the Middle, and distilled from his experiences in the conflicts of the 1970s and 1980s was very difficult to apply on the ground, in the confusion and chaos of the type of conflict epitomised by the wars in former Yugoslavia…

One feature of the Balkans Conflict was en masse sexual assault and gang rape. Brits who had Gone To Help found themselves out of their depth because they didn’t realise that women who had been gang raped weren’t actually Sharing about this, so the stupid buggers who’s Help was deemed to be essential didn’t pick up the codes that were being used by people who had experienced sexual assault. Eventually it dawned on everyone that women in the Balkans hadn’t read ‘Our Bodies Ourselves’ in the 1980s or even ‘Cosmo’, they didn’t discuss the pursuit of G spots and no, they were not going to Share as expected. Adam Curle will not have been the best person to have advised in the Balkans.

I’m glad to say that the experiences of women who were raped and murdered in the Balkans were put to good use though. When ‘The Vagina Monologues’ came to Theatre Gwynedd in Bangor, there was a scene in which one of the talking vaginas described being gang raped in Yugoslavia. Not that I saw it myself, I had no intention of spending money on such exploitative crap, but I heard all about it from an Angel who had been Touched by the performance. She was an Angel who knew about Dafydd and the gang and had acquired a number of well-paid NHS jobs that she could not do by blackmailing people over it all. The icing on the cake was that at the time I knew a young Albanian woman living in Gwynedd who had become very depressed after the birth of her baby. The Angels and Top Docs had no idea that she had been gang raped in the Balkans Conflict as a teenager. They had of course completely missed every clue.

Angels and Top Docs: when an Albanian woman told you that she looked out of her farmhouse in Albania after hearing people crying and saw ‘soldiers killing people’ and then the ‘soldiers came into our house and did bad things to us’, surely even you could have worked out what she meant. Or were you too busy telling her that she had to have the correct sort of car seat fitted before she was allowed to take the baby home, as another one of your newly delivered patients told me?

Three years later the maternity services in north Wales were found to be so dangerous that the Betsi Board was placed in special measures and Bangor University withdrew the student midwives from their placements.

Now don’t you worry my dear, we’ll look after you. Never mind the astronomical mortality rate, you won’t be taking Baby home until we’ve approved the car seat.

God knows what they do to the parents who don’t have a car, I expect that their newborns are taken into care by Safeguarders personally appointed by Jane Hutt and handed over to Dafydd’s gang.

 

Adam Curle died in Wimbledon, London, on 28 September 2006. His life and work touched many people worldwide and his academic thinking is now firmly embedded in modern peace theory.

  • Devastating Before-and-After War Images Of Syria's Beloved ...

So Curle retired to Wimbledon. That is the area favoured by the more highly paid staff of St George’s Hospital. Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain lived in Wimbledon, as did George Carman QC, the bent lawyer who was concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Miranda was Carman’s pupil and Cherie shared Carman’s Chambers until 1988. They used to go to his garden parties in Wimbledon, even when Miranda was PM.

Michael Mansfield lived just down the road at Wandsworth, another favourite area for St George’s staff, which is expensive but not quite as expensive as Wimbledon. Michael Mansfield and St Helena worked together at Took’s Court Chambers. In 1993, I wrote to Michael Mansfield about the abuse of the law by Gwynedd Social Services to criminalise patients who had complained. I received a one line reply thanking me for my letter.

 

Adam Curle’s empire lives on. Professor Tom Woodhouse now holds the Adam Curle Chair in Conflict Resolution at the University of Bradford, Department of Peace Studies.

 

James O’Connell was a high profile colleague of Curle’s at Bradford with whom Michael Randle worked. O’Connell died in 2013 and there are tributes to him all over the internet, so I’ll just reproduce a few extracts here.

 

The Guardian’s obituary for O’Connell told us:

Professor James O’Connell, who has died aged 87 after a short illness, saw the department of peace studies at Bradford University through a period of intense attacks from Margaret Thatcher’s government in the early 1980s.

I remember the row well. Questions from Gov’t re the Bradford peace studies contingent had actually been raised in the 1970s.

Such was the extent of the political dislike for “appeasement studies” during the cold war that it was the only department in any British university to be investigated by the University Grants Committee (UGC), after considerable pressure from the then education secretary, Sir Keith Joseph.

I have mentioned in previous posts that when Thatch et al went gunning for HE in the 1980s, their principal targets were UCNW, Aston, Bradford and Salford Universities. There was much confusion on the part of the commentariat at the time, because Aston, Bradford and Salford were all universities who did what Thatch wanted universities to do in that they taught huge numbers of science and engineering students. It just didn’t make any sense. Or at least not to people unaware that the priority of all politicians at the time was to keep the Westminster Paedophile Ring under wraps, particularly after it very nearly all unravelled in 1979 with Mr Thrope’s appearance at the Old Bailey – he was of course supported by his wife Miriam, throughout the long and unnecessary ordeal – and the bawdy humour which followed. Miriam’s status as the ex-wife of Lilibet’s cousin did not go unnoticed.

  • Peter Cook's biased judge sketch and its background - YouTube
  • Peter Cook's biased judge sketch (complete) - YouTube

 

But the resulting assessment was positive, and during his 15 years as head (1978-93), James saw the department treble in size while establishing a worldwide reputation.

The UGC could not find anything at all amiss in the Dept which Thatch and Sir Keith were desperate to close down, which had been founded by an associate of Earl Russell and was on the turf of the paedophile gang led by Jimmy Savile and his gangster friends – Jimmy being a good friend of Thatch as well as of Carlo, the Chancellor of UCNW – which also ran the city of Leeds, where Keith Joseph’s constituency was. Malcolm Pearce, the consultant at St George’s Hospital Medical School who was in the thick of the trafficking gang in south London linked to Dafydd, Jimmy et al (see eg. post ‘Oliver!’) came from Leeds and still had links there.

 

He was born in Cork, where his mother, Agnes (nee Harrington), kept a public house. His father, also James, was away at sea for much of the time, but returned to run the pub when Agnes died in 1935. In November 1942, during the second world war, he was one of 33 crew who were lost when the merchant ship Irish Pine disappeared without trace. Many years later it was determined that the vessel had been torpedoed by U-608, even though Ireland was a neutral state.

James was taught in Gaelic until the age of 16, took his BA and MA degrees at University College Galway and then joined the Society of African Missions, studying at Dromantine College near Newry before being ordained as a Catholic priest in 1952.

James O'Connell joined the Society of African Missions

After further study in Belgium, in 1957 he was awarded a doctorate… and spent the next 18 years in Nigeria. James left the priesthood in 1973 but stayed on in Nigeria as Professor of Government at Ahmadu Bello University.

Before James left the priesthood he’d have found out about the organised abuse in the Catholic Church which spanned entire continents.

By playing a significant role in redrawing the Nigerian constitution in the aftermath of the Biafran war of the late 1960s, James fell foul of some leading political figures and in 1975 was deported at 24 hours’ notice. Earlier that year he had married Rosemary Khawaja, nee Harris, from a Belfast Protestant family, and on returning to Britain they settled in Belfast, where James was Dean of Arts at the Northern Ireland Polytechnic.

When in Belfast, James will have found out about the elite paedophile ring based at the Kincora Boys’ Home at the time and he probably had heard the names ‘Lord Mountbatten’ and ‘Sir Anthony Blunt’ mentioned in connection with it.

It was chaos and chaos in terms of no exams and ‘unusual freedom’ was questioned in those days.
He was still running things which was hardly surprising in the light of what the Peace Studies was concealing
James hit the jackpot. His strategy was to expand the support-base of Peace Studies in Bradford, to include CND and all those numpties who were Supporting Greenham etc but understood that if they wanted their Funding to continue, they had better not say a word about the abuse of kids and vulnerable people in the care of the local authorities who had Funded This Project or at the hands of the social workers who were also active in their local CND branch or the more committed activists who were busy in END, with E.P. Thompson et al. The E.P. Thompson who, along with so many of his fellow Radicals and Peace Campaigners, lived some or all of the time in Croesor in Gwynedd. See eg. posts ‘The Village’ ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’.

Professor Judy Hutchings was awarded an OBE in 2011. Here she is with her husband, Lewis, after receiving the award in February 2011 in London. Where the eyes of those who attended the celebration after the gong was handed over were a very long way from the carnage in Gwynedd, where Judy developed and presides over her ‘Incredible Years’ programme for Troubled Children.

North Wales has Mindfulness! North Wales has DBT! North Wales has Suicide Prevention! North Wales has Incredible Years! It’s also got Dafydd and a bunch of criminals running the whole region but that is never mentioned at the Glittering Awards Ceremonies, the Woman of the Year Dinners and at Buck House when the gongs are dispensed.

Can I invite those who attend these Events to just take a walk around Holyhead, Bangor, Bethesda, Caernarfon, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Wrexham, Rhyl etc and look at what the Award Winners have actually done to their neighbours??

  • British child abuser Sir Jimmy Savile and the Thatcher ...

James…served as President of the Partnership for Theological Education, Manchester, now Luther King House Theological College. 

 

James was highly critical of the structures of the Roman Catholic church but retained his faith to the end. He is survived by Rosemary, his daughters Sanjida, Sheila and Dee, his son Patrick and three granddaughters.

 

A tribute to James O’Donnell on ‘Open Democracy’  included the information:

At the time of the Falklands/Malvinas conflict in 1982 there weren’t many universities or think-tanks in the UK providing independent critical analysis of the progress of the war. One was the department of peace studies at Bradford University, which at the time had but a handful of staff and barely a hundred students. Such was the political mood of the day, though, that a classic bit of graffiti on campus read: “they used to hang traitors – now they give them degrees in peace studies”.

Still no-one mentioned the real problem with the Dept of Peace Studies…

A couple of years later, at the height of one of the most dangerous periods of the cold war,

Which as any fule kno was brought to an end by E.P. Thompson, but no-one realised that at the time. See post ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’.

peace studies at Bradford was again under attack, this time directly from Margaret Thatcher’s government. The education ministry, led by Sir Keith Joseph, was putting serious pressure on the University Grants Committee to investigate what was widely viewed as pro-Soviet “appeasement studies”.

The head of the UGC, Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer, approached the vice-chancellor at Bradford about looking at the department as part of a normal overview of the university, promising an independent and genuine assessment. This was a very unusual request, possibly unique in the 1980s, as the UGC did not normally go into such detail. The Bradford vice-chancellor agreed – but only if the peace-studies staff would go along with it.

As with investigations into Top Docs, they have to agree to the terms of the investigation…

The head of the department at that time was Professor James O’Connell. He discussed the request with his staff and they agreed. Swinnerton-Dyer and a colleague visited the department, looked at examination scripts, publications and other outputs, and gave peace studies a positive assessment. Thatcher and Joseph were reportedly very annoyed, but the UGC was a lot more independent of government that its modern-day equivalents and there was little they could do about it…

Peter Swinnerton-Dyer, who was Chairman of the UGC, 1983-89, had a rethink regarding his intention to completely close down UCNW in 1984. UCNW did lose a few Depts, including maths, philosophy and drama, but the institution lived on. I have known for a while that this was because Swinnerton-Dyer was reminded that the whole of UCNW was a vehicle for Dafydd’s gang which was supplying the Westminster Paedophile Ring, but more recently I have been told ‘it was you sucker, UCNW agreed to ensure that your career would be fucked within a short while and then they kept schtum about your mate Anne Vernon being killed in spring 1986 and your other friends who’s careers were also ruined and who found gangsters coming after them…’ See previous posts.

Police Chief Claims Sir Edward Heath WAS A Paedophile ...

  • Lord Mountbatten Quotes. QuotesGram

Willie’s first go at being Lord President of the Council was between 20 June 1970 and 7 April 1972. Dafydd was in control of the Dept of Psychology at UCNW then, but Fergus Lowe had just arrived and was plotting as to how he would one day overthrow Dafydd and be crowned King of the Paedophiles himself. See post ‘Feet In Chains’.

Willie served as Home Secretary, 4 May 1979 – 11 June 1983, being appointed as soon as Thatch became PM. That was when Willie appeared in public wobbling with excitement at the notion of giving Young Thugs their Short Sharp Shock. The experiment was abandoned because it was demonstrated to be utterly ineffective. Willie was Home Secretary when Mary Wynch was unlawfully imprisoned by Dafydd and the gang and when she began her legal action against them. He was in post when Brown and I were placed under surveillance and undercover officers moved into our house in the guise of house mates etc…

Willie was a big mate of Thatch’s although he was a Heathite wet left over from the regime which preceded Thatch. As with Ian Gilmour (see post ‘Bernard Levin And Jonathan Miller Talk Bollocks’), people marvelled at how these two old pals of Ted’s survived among Thatch’s circle of hard right monetarists. Simple really. Peter Morrison was a mate of Thatch’s and on the right of the Party, but Peter’s brother Charles, the Tory MP for Devizes, was a pal of Ted’s and a wet. Dame Mary Morrison, their sister, was Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to Lilibet. So Dafydd had the whole spectrum of the Tory Party covered. Dafydd’s a One Nation Tory. Like his mate Ken Clark.

Willie Whitelaw and the Tory Party went back a long wavy. He was elected as the Tory MP for Penrith and The Border in 1955 and held his first Gov’t post under Harold Macmillan as a Lord of the Treasury (Gov’t Whip), 1961-62. Willie was where the action was re Profumo, which starred Bronwen Astor nee Bronwen Pugh, daughter of Sir Alun Pugh, a judge who had grown up in west Wales and who sent Bronwen to boarding school in Dolgellau. There was just one year’s difference in age between Bronwen and Ioan Bowen Rees, who also went to school in Dolgellau and who’s dad taught at Dolgellau Grammar School. Ioan himself went to Oxford – he made it big like Bronwen – but his dad and mum both went to UCNW and his dad had held office in the Students’ Union there.

Willie Whitelaw lived in Cumbria for approx 40 years – he was the MP for Penrith and the Border, 1955-83 – and entertained Savile’s mate Trumpers there. Bulletproof windows were installed in Willie’s country seat when Willie was appointed N Ireland Secretary. It is now widely believed that some of the IRA’s targets were killed because they were involved in organised paedophilia and it might not have been the IRA who assassinated them. Mountbatten is alleged to have been one such person, Ian Gow and Airey Neave are two others. There is suspicion that it was the security services themselves who killed them, the security services warring within their own ranks in a way that would have made the gwerin proud.

William Bingley lived in Cumbria. Bingley, who, when he was Legal Director of MIND, then Chief Exec of the Mental Health Act Commission, colluded with Dafydd and the gang, as did William’s mum, Lady Juliet Bingley, when she was a big wig in MIND. Lady Juliet had cut her teeth in colluding with organised abuse when young as as student at the LSE and during her training as an almoner (social worker) on placement with Liverpool Personal Social Services at about the time that dear old Dafydd and Lucille were at Liverpool University. Lady Juliet got off to a flying start, being the daughter of Reginald Vick, a surgeon at Bart’s, an institution facilitating organised abuse. Lady Juliet subsequently hit the jackpot when she married Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, who was Commander-in-Chief of the Mediterranean Fleet and NATO Commander Allied Forces Mediterranean in 1959 and then Commander-in-Chief, Portsmouth and Allied Commander-in-Chief, Channel in 1961 and who served with Lord Louis… Lady Juliet officially joined forces with Dafydd – who was a leading light in MIND – after Sir Alec pegged out in 1972.

Call me old fashioned, but I expect something rather better from the Commander of the NATO Allied Forces than to be a friend of Dafydd’s.

William Bingley died in a fell walking accident in 2011, just as Operation Pallial opened and when there were demands for a review of the Waterhouse Inquiry. Ooh the Top Docs couldn’t save poor old William and he’d just resigned as Chair of North Lancashire NHS Primary Care Trust because he’d been running a scam, after serving as a non-executive Director of Morecambe Bay Primary Care Trust (2000-06) which wiped out all those babies but that was kept quiet for a long time. After William entered the Golden Charidee in the Sky, he was fondly remembered in obituaries as having been a Wonderful Host, along with his wife, a former Angel, at their gorgeous house in Cumbria, where the dinners were legendary and the wine flowed and Important People Met Each Other. I do hope that the veg was organic and home grown.

Peter Swinnerton-Dyer was a man who could get things done, being a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, Master of St Catharine’s College, Cambridge and then VC of Cambridge University, 1979-83. I know someone who was a student of Swinnerton-Dyer’s at Cambridge many moons ago and he maintained that Swinnerton-Dyer propositioned undergrads – male undergrads, ‘there weren’t any women there’ – and used to enjoy walking around Trinity College wearing nought but a little towel wrapped around his nether regions to show off his physique, Greek God-like.

Rab Butler, who spent donkey’s years in Tory Cabinets but never became PM, was Master of Trinity, 1965-77. See previous posts. Trumpers was mates with Rab during much of that time because she was based in Cambridge and was busying herself as a Tory Councillor, magistrate, Lady Mayoress, Helping Unmarried Mothers, prison visitor, sitting on Committees and raising money for Addenbrookes Hospital, because the doctors they were wonderful. See post ’95 Glorious Years!’. There was an elite paedophile ring in operation at Cambridge at the time. Carlo was a student at Trinity College, Cambridge, 1967-70 and Rab was appointed as his personal mentor. See previous posts. Thatch gave Trumpers a peerage in 1980 for being no more than a crooked interfering busybody, but there was Mary Wynch to deal with by then and then between 1985 and 1987, Trumpers served as a junior Health Minister, in which capacity Trumpers gave her mate Jimmy Savile a job on the management task force of Broadmoor. See post ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’ and ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’.

 

To return to the man who made it clear to Swinnerton-Dyer that Bradford’s Dept of Peace Studies had better be allowed to survive, James O’Connell:

…was head of department for fifteen years from 1978-93 and by the time he retired…Bradford had acquired a worldwide reputation as one of the leading university centres for peace research.

James’s background was distinctive. He was born in Cork in the early years of Ireland’s independent statehood, was educated in Gaelic in his early years, ordained a Catholic priest in 1952 and awarded a PhD from Leuven/Louvain in 1957. He was a member of the Society of African Missions and worked in Nigeria for twenty years, including seven years as professor of government at Ahmadu University in Zaria. He left the priesthood but remained a Catholic for the rest of his life. James wasexpelled from Nigeria in 1975, mainly as a result of getting on the wrong side of politicians for his role in redrawing the constitution after the Biafra war, and was then dean of arts at Northern Ireland Polytechnic for two years before coming to Bradford to succeed Adam Curle in 1978.

At Bradford, as well as facing up to intense external pressures James had the difficult task of trying to combine leading a department that had staff and students heavily involved in activism with fulfilling the academic demands of an often suspicious university…

James’s role in all of this was crucial and it stemmed partly from his own background. As a native of County Cork he had a distance from the British establishment that ensured he was never in awe of it.

He had the dirt on it.

Moreover, his quiet demeanour concealed a tough centre and a determination which surprised many who knew him little, ensuring that he played important roles at Bradford not just as head of peace studies but also variously as dean of faculty and pro-vice-chancellor.

James was holding a stick of dynamite, there’d be no worries about promoting him to senior management.

In addition to his university work James played a key role in the development of a particularly effective NGO, the British American Security Information Council (BASIC), as its longest-serving board member: a clear demonstration of his determination to combine scholarship with support for activism…

Expanding the network.

When he arrived there were six staff, by the time he retired there were twenty-one and a student community from at least thirty countries, in an institution that had become renowned internationally for the quality of its work…

Fungus Lowe in Bangor managed a far more impressive bit of empire building in the School of Psychology after he overthrew Dafydd, but then Carlo wasn’t Chancellor of Bradford and Fungus will have worked harder than O’Connell. Fungus did have a strong work ethic but he was a sociopath so the result wasn’t as positive as it could have been.

Bradford University’s website has a tribute to James O’Connell as well:

Professor O’Connell served as Head of Department of Peace Studies from 1978 to his retirement in 1993 and was a leading figure in the development of the University in the 1980s with periods as Dean of Social Sciences and Pro-Vice Chancellor.  James played a major role in ensuring that the University survived the huge cuts imposed by the University Grants Committee in 1981 but his most enduring legacy lies in the development of Peace Studies at Bradford.

The man who’s charm, diplomacy and steady hand on the tiller was credited with helping steer UCNW through the Swinnerton-Dyer storm that nearly rendered it a shipwreck was Professor Eric Sunderland. Eric calmed the waters by being a well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend who pandered to the bastards so effectively that they continued running the place. When Eric retired in 1995 he assisted in operating the strings of Professor Roy Evans, the succeeding VC. Krakatoa erupted in 2004 when Merfyn Jones became VC, who had a track record of spilling the paedophiles’ pints, as did his wife and one of his friends (see post ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’).

The PVC who actually thrashed out the dirty deal between UCNW and Swinnerton-Dyer was Professor/the Rev Alwyn Roberts, who was among other things, a former Methodist Missionary, a BBC Governor and a Gwynedd County Councillor. See post eg. ‘Meet The Gwerin’, ‘The Wind Of No Change’ and ‘There’s Methodism In this Madness’. Alwyn Roberts also used his knowledge of Dirty Dafydd and the gang to twist Thatch’s arm re matters Welsh language campaigning…

UCNW – and indeed the wider University of Wales of which UCNW was a constituent college – was blessed with Carlo as Chancellor from 1976, when it was obvious that Jeremy Thrope’s alleged hiring of a hitman to kill Norman was a story that could not be suppressed any longer and that things might unravel at great speed if people in the Highest Places Possible didn’t rearrange the furniture. See previous posts.

Bradford University couldn’t boast the heir to the throne as its Chancellor, but it came a good second with Harold Wilson as Chancellor, 1966-85. So Harold was Chancellor during the years that he was PM, while he restructured huge swathes of Gov’t in order to conceal the Westminster Paedophile Ring and beyond that, until the year that Mary Wynch made legal history when the Master of the Rolls gave her the go-ahead to sue Dafydd and the gang. 1985 was also the year in which I first contacted MPs and Ministers about the gang in north Wales. I went to see Keith Best, the Tory MP for Anglesey, in the summer of 1985, just after Mary had appeared in the London broadsheets. I had no idea that Best was a Minister in the Welsh Office who was fully on board with the gang and as I have explained in previous posts, I’m fairly sure that Tony Francis had contacted the Welsh Office as soon as I challenged him, before I got as far as contacting Best myself.

Harold Wilson’s biggest problem in Wales in terms of molesters needing to be protected was George Thomas, the south Wales Labour MP who was elected in the mid-1940s, was appointed Speaker of the House in 1976 and in 1983 was given a Viscountcy. For years Thomas had been a huge vote-puller for the Labour Party in south Wales and he was also a big figure in the Methodist Church. See post ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’. Harold’s own wife Mary was the daughter of a Nonconformist Minister. See post ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’. Wilson used to begin his General Election campaigns in south Wales, sharing a platform with George Thomas. Thomas was a friend of Thatch as well, despite their political differences. And a big fan of the Royals… Bradford’s Gentle Folk in the Dept of Peace Studies received an added layer of protection with Harold at the top of the University.

Harold Wilson was pals with Lord Asa Briggs who grew up in Keighley, on the outskirts of Bradford, who after Cambridge and work with the intelligence services during WW II, worked at Leeds University and then spent many years at Sussex University, serving as VC, 1967-76. Not only was Asa concealing the Brighton end of Dafydd’s business, but Asa declared war on Merfyn Jones when Merfyn was still an undergrad at Sussex. Asa mobilised with the knives of many other paedophiles’ friends once more years later when Merfyn was appointed VC of Bangor University. See post ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’).

Harold Wilson was succeeded as Chancellor of Bradford by Sir John Harvey-Jones, 1986-91. Sir Trevor Holdsworth, served as Chancellor, 1992-97; then Baroness Betty Lockwood, 1997-2005 and then Imran Khan, 2005-14. I heard all about Imran Khan from my friend who worked at Bradford, but that’s another story…Bradford University and Bradford the city had some pretty big problems and Imran On Board was a helpful distraction… The huge trafficking ring that operated in Bradford for so long with the knowledge of so many people has become horribly public now Imran. DUH!!

‘Born in Lahore, Pakistan, as a cricketer Imran led Pakistan to numerous victories all over the world before moving into politics. One of his first duties as Chancellor was to lay a foundation stone for the University’s Institute of Cancer Therapies’.

What was happening to psych patients in Bradford, the huge problems in the ‘Health and Warfare’ Dept at Bradford, the con that is the ‘Born In Bradford’ project and the large scale class A drug dealing facilitated by the NHS in Bradford has still to become public. It’s OK though, as Imran confirmed, the doctors they were wonderful.

Imran Khan

 

 

Betty Lockwood, Baroness Lockwood (born 22 January 1924), is well worth a visit as they used to say on Blue Peter. ‘On a national and international level she has been heavily involved in promoting equal opportunities for women’. Reading those words are beginning to fill me with dread these days.

Born in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, the daughter of a coal miner, Betty Lockwood left Eastborough Girls School at 14, then continued her studies at night school. With the support of a Mary Macarthur Scholarship for working wimmin, she studied at Ruskin College. Betty hasn’t clarified exactly when she studied at Ruskin, which is probably quite sensible of her, because Matt Arnold taught Peter Howarth at Ruskin in the mid-1960s before they ran the massive paedophile ring with Dafydd and John Allen in north Wales. Prezza was at Ruskin with Arnold and Howarth. Arnold and Howarth were not the only people at Ruskin involved with organised abuse. See eg. post ‘A Study In Tyranny’.

After Ruskin, Betty became active in the Labour Party as Regional Wimmin’s Organiser for Yorkshire, then moved to London as the National Wimmin’s Officer for the Labour Party, 1967-75. Betty was instrumental in the creation of the Equal Pay Act 1970. Betty served as the first Chair of the EOC, 1975-83 and was Chair of the European Advisory Committee on Equal Opportunities for Women and Men, 1982–83.

So perhaps Betty can tell us all why she, along with all the other Wimmin’s Champs previously outed on this blog, said not a word about the cartel of Top Doctors who until about 1990, conspired to make it virtually impossible for women in north Wales to access NHS abortions, thus sending them into the hands of the dangerous private abortionist in Chester or other abortionists who were even more unlawful and dangerous. Then there were the women who couldn’t afford the fee to risk their health who were told that if they wanted an NHS abortion – although they still were going to be refused one – they had to stay at the North Wales Hospital to be ‘assessed’ by Dafydd. None of them emerged with a baby. Other women and not just girls, had their babies abducted by Top Docs. See eg. post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’. But Betty didn’t mention the large scale sexploitation of girls in care in north Wales or indeed by Savile’s gang in Yorkshire. Betty kept quiet about the forced marriages and ‘honour’ killings as well, it was only the Labour MP for Keighley, Ann Cryer, who had the guts to speak out about that and was called a racist by the rest of the Labour Party. See previous posts.

Betty, ask yourself why the BNP were winning seats on Bradford Council and ask yourself why Gorgeous George Galloway was elected as MP for Bradford West in 2012. You left people behind Betty, just as Little Nell Hodge left them behind in Barking while the local hospital exterminated patients and the BNP began picking up votes there.

We should not be surprised that Betty remained silent about the appalling suffering of some women and girls in north Wales and elsewhere. Because Betty while was Chair of the EOC, 1975-83, this was the Deputy Chair of the EOC, 1975-79:

Elspeth Howe, Baroness Howe of Idlicote

  •  Baroness Elspeth Howe, relation of Carlo’s wife Camilla, wife of Geoffrey Howe, Thatcher’s right hand man until he threw a wobbler at the end of 1990. Before he was an MP and Cabinet Minister, Howe was a crooked barrister working on the Chester and Wales Circuit, concealing the crimes of Dafydd et al. Howe served as Solicitor General, 1970-72, in Heath’s Gov’t, where he continued to hide the crap.

Elspeth and Geoffrey were lifelong friends of Ronnie Waterhouse and his wife. Howe knew Waterhouse when they were young, years before Howe became an MP. They Howes and Waterhouses went on holiday together regularly, they were the best of mates.

  •  Ronnie Waterhouse enjoyed kipping at Dorneywood when Howe was Chancellor of the Exchequer, but he was a bit pissed off when Howe was demoted to Foreign Secretary because the official residence wasn’t up to Waterhouse standards. Ronnie ensured that the rest of the family enjoyed a bit of life at the top too; when his wife couldn’t make it to a Geoffrey and Elspeth Jolly, Ronnie’s daughter ‘deputised’ for his wife. The rest of us would call it ‘getting your daughter into a Cabinet Minister’s freebie’.

Not that the Waterhouses were the only unacceptable things to find their way into official Gov’t residences during Dafydd’s heyday. Savile spent numerous Christmas’s at Chequers with his pal.

Sad Satan - Nejzvláštnější hororová hra - Paraweb

  • No-one can accuse Elspeth of using her husband to get through the doors of the Lords though. Although she became Lady Elspeth after Geoffrey was Sirred and then Lady all over again when Geoffrey became Baron Howe, Elspeth was given a peerage in own right in June 2001, the year following the publication of the Waterhouse Report. Obsequious press reports quipped that the woman who ignored the gang rape and murder of children was ‘Once, Twice, Three Times A Lady’. The Triple Lady had achieved international significance by being, as well as Betty’s Deputy at the EOC, a JP in Inner London, 1964-2002.
  • Would that be the Inner London of the Boroughs which sent so many kids to children’s homes in north Wales throughout the 1970s and 80s, ignored serious complaints of abuse and then kept quiet when the kids returned to London as sex workers, many of them dying of HIV AIDS in the late 1980s? Yes, it would be. Elspeth was Chairman of the Bench at Camberwell Youth Court. Camberwell is on the doorstep of the Maudsley and the Top Docs of the Maudsley, including Dafydd’s boss Dr Bob Hobson when Dafydd passed through the Maudsley before returning to north Wales and becoming a consultant, were facilitating a sex abuse ring in Camberwell. The business bloomed and under various local authority reorganisations, part of the turf became Southwark Borough Council, which sent huge numbers of kids to children’s homes in north Wales, as part of massive corrupt deals carried out by Bermondsey MPs/Councillors. Peter Tatchell tried to challenge the people involved – Lord Bob Mellish and pals – when he stood for Bermondsey in 1983, but was subjected to a homophobic hate campaign organised by Mellish and co, which was joined by all other political parties, as well as the tabloid press. See post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’. Tatchell was beaten up and received death threats. Betty Lockwood was Chair of the EOC at the time. Equal Opps are about men as well Betty…

The kids in care and Empowered Service Users of Southwark were cursed by layers and layers of paedophiles’ friends. Dafydd’s mate Dr Jim Birley from the Maudsley, who was almost as unhinged as Dafydd but managed to hold many roles at the top of the psychiatry establishment nonetheless, set up various charidees for Empowered Service Users and like Dafydd, was involved with MIND. Jim Birley was mates with Lord David Ennals, who as well as having a long and glorious involvement with MIND alongside Dafydd and the Bingleys, served as a Minister in the Home Office in 1967 when Harold Wilson was PM, as a Minister in the DHSS, 1968-70, under Secretary of State Battling Babs Castle and then as Secretary of State for the DHSS, 1976-79, under PM Jim Callaghan. David Ennals knew exactly what Dafydd was up to from numerous sources and he was a big wig in MIND throughout the years when MIND was associated with the NCCL and campaigns for paedophiles’ rights. Ennals was the Labour MP for Dover, 1964-70 and Norwich North, 1974-83, so all will not have been well in Norwich. Norwich is the location of the University of East Anglia, which was presided over by Bluglass’s mate Michael Thompson…

Parts of the old Camberwell Borough Council were subsumed into Peckham and Dulwich. The Labour MP for Peckham, 1982-97 and Camberwell and Peckham from 1997 until the present moment was/is dear old Harriet, who was the legal officer for the NCCL when the NCCL was campaigning for paedophiles’ rights. Tessa Jowell was Labour MP for Dulwich, 1992-97 and Dulwich and West Norwood, 1997-2015. Tessa was a social worker who worked as a child care officer for Lambeth Borough Council, which oversaw kids in care abused in its own homes and sent them into the arms of Dafydd and John Allen. Tessa also worked as a psychiatric social worker at the Maudsley and served as Deputy Director of MIND during the 1970s. Before being elected as MP for Dulwich, Tessa was Chair of the Camden Borough Council’s Social Services Committee, when kids and psych patients were being abused in Camden.

 

On 27 February 1978 Elspeth’s mate Betty was elevated to a life peerage and sat in the Lords until her retirement in May 2017. In 1978, Dafydd and the gang were in hot pursuit of Mary Wynch who had gone into hiding before they found her and illegally imprisoned her and it was obvious that Jeremy Thrope was living on borrowed time.

Betty’s connections with Bradford University dated back to 1983, when she became a member of its Council. So Betty joined just after Thatch and Keith Joseph launched their attack and Professor James O’Connell twisted Swinnerton-Dyer’s knackers and reminded him of what was at stake here. Betty became Chancellor in 1997, the year that Elspeth’s pal Ronnie began the Waterhouse Inquiry. Betty remained as Chancellor throughout many of the Bradford adventures of which I heard and then handed over to Imran in 2005.

Betty is Chair of the National Coal Mining Museum for England.

Here she is, down t’ pit:

Betty is President of the Yorkshire Arthritis Research Campaign. She is also a member of Soroptimist International, of which Lucille Hughes was/is a leading light, along with a lot of Lucille’s friends. Betty is Patron of the Born In Bradford research project. The Top Doctors probably haven’t told Betty that for years they knew about genetically inherited conditions affecting the children of cousins who married, but have only just begun offering a genetic counselling service. The forced marriages and ‘honour’ violence has been admitted now, but the Top Docs are still keeping schtum about the disproportionately high mortality rate among baby girls in some parts of Bradford.

Betty lists her hobbies as enjoying the Yorkshire Dales and opera. Here she is with her friends at La Scala:

Betty was succeeded as Chair of the EOC in 1983 by another battler for the everyday woman, Beryl Catherine Platt, Baroness Platt of Writtle, (18 April 1923 – 1 February 2015). Beryl was a Tory who’s background was in engineering and she worked in aeronautics and aviation safety. She retained a strong interest in science and technology, ‘particularly the advancement of women in these fields’.

Beryl Catherine Myatt was born at Leigh-on-Sea in 1923. Platt was educated at Westcliff High School for Girls in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. When WW II broke out, Platt and her family moved away from the coast and she spent a year at Slough High School for Girls (now known as Upton Court Grammar School) where she initially gained entrance to read Mathematics at Cambridge.

In July 1941, the Gov’t announced a state bursary for engineering undergraduates to help the war effort. Platt wanted the dosh, changed her plans and thus studied  Aeronautical Engineering.

When Platt arrived at Girton College, Cambridge, she was one of five women amongst 250 men studying Mechanical Sciences; she was only the ninth woman to be accepted since her original predecessor in WW I. Wartime meant that the course was reduced to an intensive two years, including for Platt three weeks’ experience on the shop floor of the Hawker Aircraft Company. Platt was of the generation where women were not awarded a degree, no matter how well they’d done, in 1943, they still received a ‘Title of degree’. It was not until 1948, that women were admitted to degrees at Cambridge.

Upon graduation in 1943, Platt was advised by C.P. Snow in his role at the Cambridge University Appointments Board (a sort of careers advisory service) to contribute to the war effort and so Platt chose to return to the Hawker factory. This was the beginning of six years of work as a technical assistant in the aviation industry, 1943-49.

Platt’s first job was at Hawkers Experimental Flight Test Department, where she was one of only three women in the Dept. Platt worked on the testing and production of three of RAF fighter planes. After the end of the war, Hawker’s chief designer Sidney Camm offered Platt a continued role at Hawkers but Platt declined, preferring to move from war planes to investigating air safety for British European Airways.

In 1949, Platt married Stewart Sydney Platt, marking the end of her professional career in aeronautical engineering. Platt became a housewife, and a mother of two children, Hon. Roland Francis Platt (b. 1951) and Hon. Victoria Catherine Platt (b.1953). Both her children are chartered accountants.

Once Platt’s children began school she considered a return to the aircraft industry but there were none to be found within range of Writtle, the village where she lived. So like many posh, well-educated women of her generation, Platt plunged into local politics.

Platt’s political career began through her membership of the Parochial Church Council and she was then nominated for a vacancy on Chelmsford Rural District Council in 1956, a role she held until 1974. In 1965, Platt was elected to Essex County Council and held this role until 1968, when she was appointed to the office of Alderman of the Essex County Council, 1969-74. Platt was also appointed Chairman of the Essex County Council, 1971-80.

Platt was created a life peer in 1981. Platt wasn’t quite the offensive criminal that Trumpers was, but like Trumpers, Platt was given a peerage by Thatcher after doing, at least officially, bugger all. Britain was full of ladies who sat on the Church Council and Chaired the County Council at the time, they didn’t all receive peerages. Excuse my cynicism, but Platt received that peerage for something that does not appear in accounts of her biography. I suspect that it was something to do with the abuse ring in the Suffolk/Essex area, which gave rise to John Allen and Dafydd’s business plan to produce child sex workers in north Wales. Allen was in Suffolk, Rab Butler was the Tory MP for nearby Saffron Waldon, 1929-65 and the aristocratic family, the Herveys, have long since had their family seat in the area. John Jermyn Hervey aka Lord Bristol was famously a drug raddled toe rag who infected numerous rent boys with HIV, but John Jermyn was not the only member of his family to meet a sticky end when not very old. His brother Nicholas did as well, who’s lifestyle was nothing like John’s, but Nicholas suffered very badly at the hands of Top Docs. See post ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’.

The obliging and unscrupulous Top Doc in the Suffolk area keeping the lid on the crap was Dr John W. Paulley, who was one of the founders of the University of Buckingham, Thatcher’s dream of a private university. Thatch became Chancellor after the University of Buckingham came into existence. Lord Max Beloff was also heavily involved with the University of Buckingham and many members of the extended Beloff family bagged senior academic positions at the University. Lord Max was mates with Ioan Bowen Rees and Lord Max’ son Michael Beloff QC was a colleague and friend of Cherie and Miranda’s who ensured that the 1996 Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974 was completely suppressed. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’ Lord Max’s sister Norah Beloff was a journo who worked for Reuters and also ‘The Observer’ for many years. Her husband continued to work for ‘The Observer’ after Norah had fallen out with Donald Trelford and left. See previous posts. For information on Lord Max and his family and the University of Buckingham, see post ‘The International Language of Screaming’.

 

On 24 June 1981, less than a month after joining the Lords Beryl, Platt made her maiden speech on a “subject very close to [her] heart”, that of higher and further education.

Platt was a member of the European Communities Advisory Committee on Equal Opportunities for Women and Men, 1983-88 and became Chair of the EOC in 1983. In 1984, as a result of encouragement from the Finniston Report, the EOC together with the Engineering Council set up WISE – Women Into Science and Engineering. The initiative was spearheaded by Platt and was established to highlight the career opportunities for girls and women in science and engineering professions.

Beryl Platt almost certainly knew Daphne Jackson, who was President of the Women’s Engineering Society. Daphne Jackson was the first female Professor of Physics in the UK and she spent most of her career at the University of Surrey, her early career having been given a helping hand by Lewis Elton, Ben Elton’s dad, who was also an academic at Surrey. Like Platt, Daphne made a great deal of her support for women in science and engineering and she promoted schemes whereby professional women who had taken career breaks could return to work without losing seniority. As with Beryl, Daphne’s Support For Women was in fact Support For Middle Class Women to go further in their careers. Not all of them however. What did Daphne and her mate Wynn Aherne at Surrey do to me? They stole my work, gave it to one of their mates in Newcastle-upon-Tyne University – a woman of course – who published it with her name on it without me having any idea about this, used it to raise further funds for themselves and told me that my funding had run out. I was made redundant. The biggest irony of all was that Daphne died of cancer in 1991, just two years after they did all this. It was ironic because Daphne wasn’t that old and she had been involved in cancer research fraud with the people who plagiarised my work. Daphne’s obits stressed how she succumbed to the disease that she was ‘helping to fight’ to ‘save other people’. Not quite the real story… See previous posts for further details of Daphne Jackson and Lewis Elton fun..

Platt was an active member of the Lords and between 1990 and 2008 she served on a number of Committees relating to science, technology and engineering, including the Select Committee on Science and Technology. Lord John Walton, the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, who protected Dafydd and the gang for their entire careers (see previous posts), was a member of the Select Committee on Science and Technology, 1992-96 and 1997-2000. Lord Bob Winston Chaired the Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology.
  • From October 2010, Platt was on a leave of absence from the Lords and she died on 1 February 2015.

Platt was a member of the council of the City and Guilds of London Institute, 1974-94. She was a member of the Cambridge University Appointments Board, 1975-79. Platt had been awarded numerous of honorary fellowships and doctorates and was a Fellow of the RSA. She was given the Freedom of the City of London in 1988. Platt was also made a liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Engineers in 1988. She was Vice-President of UMIST, 1984-92 and Chancellor of Middlesex University, 1994-2001.
