The Price Is Right

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

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

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

‘How did they get away with this?’

Even with a powerful accomplice.See the source image

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Duchess is a supporter of UNICEF.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Have You Come Far?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

She was called “Melons” in the popular press.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lady Helen and her husband have four children:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is Paola a Satirist of huge proportions by any chance?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tom remained silent.Image result for professor tom burns images

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Paul Bowden

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See previous posts for Dr Mawson details…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A pity about Isabella and McQueen though.

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tony Francis was demanding a Strategy Meeting…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Just a few examples.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Professional Memberships:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Names Of More Witnesses:

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

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

 

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

12 Nov 1991 – Mawson wrote to Dr Paul Nickson…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

More names of witnesses:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

THEY FITTED HIM UP.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See the source image

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That’s how little Alun Davies knew about me!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Sally Baker baker.sally1@googlemail.com

Thu, Oct 24, 2019, 8:45 AM

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

My post ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ discussed some aspects of the Theatre of Cruelty in north Wales that Ronnie Waterhouse detailed in his Report that Ronnie either dismissed with a few throwaway comments or decided not to worry about anyway. I explained in that post that there were so many horrors detailed in the Waterhouse Report that I do not have the capacity on this blog to reproduce most of them, but I did promise to revisit the Theatre of Cruelty in a follow-up post.

So here are a few more details directly related to some of the actors who starred in the Theatre of Cruelty as discussed in ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ and a few other aspects of the Theatre of Cruelty that blows out of the water the notion that Top Docs and other people of far higher status than bottom feeding, minimally qualified (or unqualified), care workers ‘didn’t know’ what was happening in the Theatre of Cruelty.

‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ – introduced the home known as ‘Tanllwyfan’, which like so many children’s homes in north Wales was the site of organised abuse and employed a senior member of staff who later went to prison for assaults on children.

Tanllwyfan was a former farmhouse at Old Colwyn. It was opened as a children’s home in 1916 by the Boys and Girls Welfare Society, whose HQ moved from Manchester to Cheadle. Under the Children and Young Persons Act 1969 Tanllwyfan was categorised as an ‘assisted community home with education on the premises’ ie. a ‘CHE’ and it was operated by the Boys and Girls Welfare Society with Denbighshire County Council and then Clwyd County Council. Obviously there was a very long-standing association between the Boys and Girls Welfare Society and the Gang in north Wales.

Tanllwyfan was located near the children’s and adolescent mental health unit Gwynfa, in which children were raped, buggered, battered, dropped out of the window on their heads, made to wear dog collars and led around on leads… Gwynfa Unit was managed by Nigel Mannering Berry, a former North Wales Hospital Denbigh Angel and the Top Doc responsible for Gwynfa Unit was Dr Barry Kiehn, a mate of Dafydd’s.  Although Gwynfa Unit was located in Clwyd, most of the young patients were referred from Gwynedd. Tony Francis and his colleagues will have been doing the referring. The abuse of the children at Gwynfa was known about by teachers, social workers and clinical psychologists. They all ignored complaints. See eg. ‘Don’t Be Silly, He’s Nice’.

Tanllwyfan was designated in 1971 as a special home available for use of all  the North Wales counties. Some children were also admitted from English Local Authorities in the north west, ie. the Liverpool and Manchester region. The Top Docs in those cities had for years colluded with Dafydd and Gwynne’s criminality, as had the politicians.

Denbighshire Education Committee at that time provided teaching facilities on the premises at Tanllwyfan, but some children attended local schools. ‘Psychiatric oversight and treatment were provided at a nearby child guidance clinic and a psychiatric social worker attended weekly.’ I presume that this is a reference to the notorious Gwynfa Unit.

Gwynfa was so indefensible that it was closed not long before the Waterhouse Inquiry was announced, no doubt because events at Gwynfa would never have withstood scrutiny. There was not even the excuse that the Gwynfa kids were ‘delinquent children in care’; most of the kids at Gwynfa were not in care, they were kids with childhood depression, eating disorders etc…

In the 1979 Regional Plan, Tanllwyfan was available for the use of all Local Authorities within the Welsh region. The educational provision was one teacher and one classroom and there were re-stated provisions for psychiatric, psychological and medical services. However, the future of the home was not very clear from the document because a note stated that it was to close as a CHE in 1980-81, whereas another section of the plan showed it as continuing to be a community home intended to accommodate up to 18 mainly older boys and girls with the same educational provision as before and available to Gwynedd as well as Clwyd. In the event it seems to have accommodated children in the age range of six to 16 years and it eventually closed on 31 December 1984.

So like Bryn Estyn, Tanllwyfan was a children’s home that was closed in the wake of Brown and me refusing to keep quiet about Gwynne during 1984.

On 18 Nov 1984, Lord Maelor aka Thomas Jones, who had served as the Labour MP for the constituency containing Bertrand Russell and Clough’s set at Cwm Croesor, 1951-66, spontaneously combusted in a fire at his home. Lord Maelor was a former schoolteacher who had trained at the Normal College in Bangor, an institution run by Dafydd and Gwynne’s mates; when he was off-duty Lord Maelor relaxed by wearing ladies’ clothes. One longstanding member of Coleg Normal staff from the 1950s, who ended up as Deputy Principal, was Menai Williams, who was a personal friend of Megan Lloyd-George. Menai was also mates with Dafydd et al. See eg. ‘Thought For the Day’. Lord Maelor’s brother Idwal Jones served as the Labour MP for Wrexham, 1955-70. Both Thomas and Idwal grew up near Wrexham. See previous posts…

The 1979 Regional Plan epitomises the confusion that pervaded the welfare services in north Wales; even the official documentation produced by Gov’t was unclear and contradictory, so little wonder that the Gang used any facility for pretty much any purpose that suited them. Hence Dafydd’s ‘Young People’s Personality Disorder Unit’ at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh was a chaotic ward of young people unlawfully detained who were encouraged to have sex with each other while Angels watched the live floor show. See ‘Include Me Out’.

Although Bryn Estyn and Tallwyfan were closed in 1984, kids and staff were relocated to other homes in the region and the abuse of the kids continued in the same vein as before. The world was thus told that the theatre of cruelty had closed down…

I have been told that it was Prof Eric Sunderland, Principal of UCNW, who was responsible for beating the jungle drums and ensuring that a cosmetic exercise was undertaken to ‘clean up’. All senior staff at UCNW were facilitating the ring in north Wales. The Rev Prof Alwyn Roberts, a former Methodist missionary (see previous posts eg. ‘Meet The Gwerin!’ and ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’), was a member of Gwynedd County Council and numerous members of staff at UCNW were training ‘professionals’ in eg. teaching, social work, psychology, theology, who joined the Gang after graduation. Dafydd pulled the strings in the Dept of Psychology. Gwynne sat in the Student Health Centre and his accomplice Dr DGE Wood was married to a Senior Lecturer in the Dept of Plant Biology. In 1984, Nice Young Doctors Dr Evans, Dr Chris Tilson and Dr Lyndon Miles arrived to work in the Student Health Centre; they were all on board with the Gang but were not as grotesquely obvious as Gwynne.

Management of the day-to-day running of Tanllwyfan was vested in a local Committee (managers), including three Local Authority (Clwyd) members, which met monthly at Tanllwyfan. A representative of Clwyd Social Services Dept attended these meetings: Veronica Pares  – Veronica starred in my post ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ as being one of those staff identified by senior officials in Clwyd who was so hopeless that managers of children’s homes were not expected to follow her instructions – attended in the early years when she was Principal Residential and Day Care Officer and later Gordon Ramsay (Principal Social Worker, Children) attended regularly. Gordon Ramsay was a very culpable man re the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. A great many things escaped Gordon’s notice, even violent sex offenders whom Gordon knew of old being promoted or given excellent references to get the hell out of Clwyd and work in senior roles with children in other regions.

The General Secretary of the Boys and Girls Welfare Society also attended the monthly management meetings.

The managers were responsible for the appointment of staff at Tanllwyfan and they reviewed admissions and discharges of children (it was usual for two or three members of the Committee to attend case conferences). It was the practice for a member of the Committee to make a separate visit to Tanllwyfan each month. There was also an ‘independent visitor’ living locally, who was appointed by the General Secretary of the Boys and Girls Welfare Society. An independent visitor living locally would be a member of the Gang, no-one else would have been allowed to occupy that role and there was no shortage of local people happy to help the Gang, it was the only route to success in north Wales. Dafydd was the only game in town.

The Officer In Charge (Warden) of Tanllwyfan when Clwyd County Council took over its part of the shared responsibility for Tanllwyfan was Mr D. Shepherd, whose wife was the housekeeper. The Shepherds resigned in July 1976 and were succeeded by Mr and Mrs Groome with effect from 7 August 1976.

Richard Francis Groome was introduced in ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ as someone who was eventually jailed for child abuse, but only after he had left Tanllwyfan and worked in a very senior position at Clwyd Hall School.

Groome was 36 years old when he took over as Warden of Tanllwyfan, with four years’ experience of full-time social work. Before that Groome had served as a musician in the Royal Marines for 13 years and had then had also served with the NAAFI in South America. Groome had done some part-time work with youth clubs before working as an RCCO (Residential Child Care Officer) for Northamptonshire County Council from June 1972 and served subsequently as manager of a children’s home in Kingston-upon-Thames and then Team Leader for two years at an assessment centre in Hertfordshire. He had also attended the prequalifying in-service training at Ewell College in 1973 and qualified for the CRCCYP ( Certificate in Residential Child Care and Young People) in 1976 at Havering College.

The Leicestershire social worker Frank Beck who was a mate of Greville Janner’s and who received several life sentences in Nov 1991 for the rape and abuse of hundreds of kids in his care had previously worked in Northamptonshire. Beck, with others, is also suspected of having murdered a boy in care; the boy’s death was officially attributed to ‘suicide’ after he ran away from care, but the circumstances of his death suggest that suicide was an unlikely explanation. See previous posts.

Rob Evans spent years during the 1980s and 90s as a senior manager in Gwynedd Social Services. Rob Evans was initially a senior manager of children in care and was then given domain over community mental health teams. Wherever Rob Evans went, clients were abused and found dead. Rob Evans was a graduate of Leicester University and also worked in Northamptonshire. See eg. ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ At one point Evans worked in the Aberconwy social work team with Terence James. In 1986, Terence James was the social worker who arrived in the North Wales Hospital without letting me know who he was or what he wanted. I was being held unlawfully at the time and the next day I was due to appear at Bangor Magistrates Court after a junior doc lied to the police about me attacking him. When I arrived at the Court, I found that the charges against me had been dropped but I was taken straight back to the secure unit at Denbigh because James had sectioned me the day before, either 30 or 31 Jan 1987.

Harold Macmillan, who’s son Maurice swindled and bankrupted my father the year that I was born, died on 29 Dec 1986. I was suddenly released from Denbigh days after Mac’s funeral. I had no access to newspapers in Denbigh and the TV usually was tuned to soaps and I don’t remember hearing that Macmillan had died when I was in there.

I’ve been told that Tom King had something to do with letting the Gang know that I had to be kept under lock and key until Mac’s funeral and the Tributes were out of the way. Tom King was Secretary of State for N Ireland at the time, so he had Kincora and all that depended on Kincora being concealed to think about.

Terence James sectioned me in collaboration with a deeply unpleasant, aggressive Top Doc called Ramiah Ramiah. No-one told me his name either, I discovered their names by sneaking a look at paperwork. I made a note of Terence James’s name and Ramiah’s and also jotted down dates, quotes and other facts on a bit of paper and left it on my bed. It disappeared. When my lawyer finally obtained my medical files in 2005, there was a copy of my piece of paper with notes re the wrongdoing in there.

Re Groome managing a children’s home in Kingston-upon-Thames; Kingston was ruled by Hammersmith surgeon Hugh Bentall. Bentall was a very rich man who owned Bentall’s, the posh department store in Kingston. Brown’s aunty worked in Bentall’s and she and her family (Brown’s mum’s brother Barry Dent and their daughters Katie and Gabrielle) lived in Kingston-upon-Thames. Katie went to Tiffin Girls’ School, was rejected for a place to read law at Oxford in the 1980s and was instead offered a ‘reserved place’ that the school had to read theology at Pembroke College, Oxford. Oxford denied that reserved places still existed in those days. I have more recently been told that Katie’s place at Pembroke was a deal for keeping quiet about my encounters with the Gang. At Oxford, Katie became an official for the Lesbian and Gay Soc and caused a scandal in Kingston when she had a relationship with one of her former teachers from Tiffin. After graduation Katie worked for Gay Switchboard, Centrepoint and the last I heard she was working for Merlin. Katie seems to have changed her name, Brown and I have not heard of her for a long while. Gabrielle went to Bristol University and became a teacher.

Hugh Bentall’s son Richard is a clinical psychologist who trained with Dafydd’s Gang at UCNW and was working there in the 1980s. Richard was married to the daughter of Eifion Jones, the Dean of Science at UCNW. She did her degree in the School of Plant Biology and then trained as an Angel.

Hugh Bentall was perpetrating research fraud himself and only secured his Chair at Hammersmith Hospital after a colleague of his was found dead in the hospital in questionable circumstances and Bentall made a generous financial donation to Hammersmith. Bentall’s secretary doubled up as his mistress and in return she received a degree and a PhD in anatomy and then a lecturing job. See eg. ‘Interesting Facts’.

Adrian Bell, my former tutor in the School of Plant Biology at UCNW, did his degree at Kingston Poly.

Ollie Brooke pleaded guilty to child porn offences at Kingston Crown Court on 18 Dec 1986, four days after Dafydd had me wrongfully arrested and unlawfully imprisoned. The Court at Kingston were not told of the enormity of Ollie’s offending and they were told lies about his academic record and status; the Court knew that they were being lied to as well. See eg. ‘Oliver!’ and ‘Too Many Pills’.

Norman Lamont served as the Tory MP for Kingston-upon-Thames, 1972-97. Lamont was the Minister for Defence Procurement when Ollie was jailed. Ollie’s appeal against the length of his sentence (he didn’t appeal against his conviction, he pleaded guilty) was heard by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane in May 1986 and Ollie’s sentence was reduced; Lane ordered Ollie’s release and Ollie was quietly let out of prison in June 1987. There was of course a General Election held in June 1987 and Thatch won with a landslide. The Windbag had convinced himself that he was going to win and Dr Death believed that his chances were excellent as well. No polls predicted the extent of Thatch’s victory.

Most promotions for Tory Ministers were made immediately after Thatch won once more in June 1987. Yet Norman Lamont was appointed Financial Secretary to the Treasury – it eventually led to Lamont becoming Chancellor under John Major, in which role Lamont crashed the economy – on 21 May 1987. Some two weeks before the General Election that no-one expected Thatch to win, yet the Tories themselves always seemed to approach in a very blasé manner.

Norman Lamont grew up in Shetland, he was the son of the islands surgeon. Lamont and his family knew Sir Douglas Black, who also grew up in Shetland. Black spent much of the middle years of his career in Manchester, working as a Top Doc with the Docs who throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s, concealed the crimes of Gwynne the Lobotomist. Manchester was a real centre of rot but a far more powerful one than was made public. People know about the London and Edinburgh medical elbows, but not many people talk about those in Manchester, which were lower profile but packed a punch because, I suspect, of Gwynne. Lord Robert Platt ruled supreme in Manchester medical circles for decades; Platt wasn’t from a medical family, Platt’s relatives were influential in High Culture, opera, music, theatre etc…

The surgeon husband of Dame Isabel Graham Bryce worked in Manchester until he retired in the 1960s and they relocated to Oxfordshire. Dame Isabel had held senior roles in NHS governance in Manchester, including of the children’s hospital there, but after they moved to Oxfordshire, Dame Isabel became Richard Crossman’s right hand woman re keeping the lid on the NHS abuses and the VIP abuse ring in Oxfordshire. It brought Dame Isabel great influence and was a highly effective method of keeping a great deal of wrongdoing among the dreaming spires quiet. See previous posts…

Dame Isabel was the daughter of Prof James Lorrain Smith (1862–1931), a Professor of Pathology in Belfast and his wife, Isabella. Dame Isabel’s father knew the father of Sir Donald Acheson, Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate who served as Chief Medical Officer, 1985-90, having been appointed, I am told, because I refused to shut up about the Gang…

The daughter of Bertrand Russell’s and Clough’s mate Patrick Blackett who had a second home at Croesor was married to a Manchester surgeon. They knew Eric Hobsbawm who was batting for the Windbag. The Windbag was pandering to Tony Francis; Tony Francis had worked with the Manchester crowd immediately before relocating to north Wales in 1983. His wife Sadie had trained at Manchester Medical School.

Douglas Black publicly wore his Socialism on his sleeve, but an austere Scottish learned Socialism. He was appointed the Gov’ts Chief Scientist at the DHSS in the 1970s and in that role Black Chaired the Black Inquiry into Inequalities. Thatch was PM by the time that the Black Report was finished and she literally threw it straight in the bin. The Top Docs and a lot of social scientists were seething that Thatch had ignored the Great Man’s words of wisdom, but she didn’t give a stuff. See previous posts…

Douglas’s son Andrew is a psychiatrist who has worked with many whom we know and love as discussed in previous posts.

Previous posts eg. ‘Hey, Hey, DAJ How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’ discussed some of what happened to me during 1986-87, including the Gang’s Cunning Plan to frame me for a serious offence and imprison me shortly after the June 1987 General Election. The documentation in my possession demonstrates that the elaborate plan was hatched in early 1987 and involved Clwyd and Gwynedd Health Authorities, the police, the Home Office (Douglas Hurd was Home Secretary), Risley Remand Centre, the Mental Health Act Commission and many people who worked with these organisations… The Leaders of the Tories, Labour and Plaid and Dr Death’s crew knew about it and all hoped to benefit at the polls from Keeping Quiet About The Gang. The one person apart from Thatch who did win from the arrangement was Ieuan Wyn Jones, who got his big break and became the Plaid MP for Anglesey. Ieuan was a bent solicitor who was friends with my solicitor. Ieuan was born in Denbigh where his dad had been a Methodist Minister; he married a girl from a village on the outskirts of Denbigh who worked as an Angel and midwife… It couldn’t have been better for them really could it??? See previous posts for further details of Ieuan, his now deceased wife and their cesspit.

I can work out pretty much what happened at Gov’t level during the first six months of 1987 after Ollie was jailed, but I’m confused as to how the other Party Leaders didn’t realise that only Thatch was going to benefit from the Silence re the Top Docs and the Cunning Plan to frame and imprison me. I think that it was in 1987 that the polls were proved to be completely wrong re predictions of the election results.

I am wondering if the polls were rigged; I am fairly certain that the word went out, but quietly, to all senior Top Docs and others who desperately needed the criminality of the Gang and Ollie’s mates not to unravel to vote for Thatch no matter what they told other people they were voting, but I’m impressed that the pollsters completely missed what was going on. I suspect that the polls must have been rigged; June 1987 was famous for the ‘people too ashamed to admit they voted for the toxic Tories’ effect but pollsters somewhere must have realised what was happening…

It Woz The Trafficking, Murdering Top Doctors Wot Won It!

With a little help from their friends:

 

June 1987 saw the influx of Loony Left MPs into the House, at least in constituencies that returned a Labour MP, although there weren’t many of them… The Loony Left MPs had all previously been Councillors in Local Authorities that were sending kids to children’s homes in north Wales or were hosting rings linked to Dafydd and the Gang…

Brown believes that the security services worked very hard to ensure that the Labour Party remained unelectable throughout the 1980s and much of the 1990s. The security services were keeping a lid on the Gang and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Eric Hobsbawm worked for the security services, as did many others in what had been Bertrand Russell’s crowd.

Well that went well didn’t it Windbag.

Uncle Harry’s nephew understandably became very upset when the Daily Mail published this a few years ago:

Which newspaper found fame for metamorphosing into what Brown described as an ‘abuse sheet’ directed at the Windbag in the run-up to June 1987? Er, the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail should be writing thank you letters to Uncle Harry’s nephew and paying tribute to his security services-linked old dad and his mates, because their desperation to conceal the horror that was Gwynne and Dafydd, with whom so many on the left had colluded kept Thatch in Gov’t, enabling the neoliberal revolution that has done so much damage to so many but not the Daily Mail…

Meet one of the movers and shakers behind Soho’s famous Partisan Coffee House, hub of the New Left:

Gwynne’s mate Sir Donald was so influential that Miranda recovered him from the tomb in which he had lain after that embarrassing business re the lies to the general public about BSE and gave Sir Donald Health Inequalities to play with. Health Inequalities have widened since Donald was let loose on them. Donald lied about HIV/AIDS as well… Donald knew that many of the victims of the Gay Plague had contracted HIV from the NHS knowingly using infected blood products on them, rather than their Loose Ways With Rampant, Unprotected Sex. Thus were so many witnesses to Gwynne and Dafydd’s crime empire exterminated, blamed for their own deaths but the Top Docs who killed them enjoyed acres of good PR re their Non-Judgemental Compassion for the dying degenerates. It did wonders for Big Pharma in the long term though, all those lovely expensive drugs that powerful lobbying groups demanded should be made available on the NHS, including Prep….

See eg. ‘Captain Swing and His Crew’, ‘Life In Cold Blood’ and ‘Their Trade Is Fuckwittery’ for details of how the Radicals ensured that the medico-legal complex remained 100% toxic, dominated by serious organised crime and global capitalism prevailed.

 

Richard Groome’s time working at an assessment centre in Hertfordshire took him to the county that was home to Gwynne and Dafydd’s mates Admiral Sir Alec and Lady Juliet Bingley. Lady Juliet was the daughter of Bart’s surgeon Reginald Vick and had trained as a social worker at the LSE. After a career as a Posh Man’s Wife, Lady Juliet felt the call of Good Works once more and became a leading light in MIND. The Bingley’s son William was appointed Legal Director of MIND while his mum was Chair and William later went on to become Chief Exec of the Mental Health Act Commission, Chair of NHS Trusts in the north west of England and Prof of Mental Health Law and Ethics at the University of Central Lancashire. Bingley also worked for Cumbria University, ran a consultancy  and set up a charidee helping Oppressed Wimmin in the Pakistan/Kashmir region. Bingley died in a fell walking accident in 2011, some three weeks after he was obliged to resign as Chair of an NHS Trust when it was found that his consultancy had been flogging its services to the Trust of which he was Chair. William ran his consultancy and the charidee with his wife, a former psychiatric Angel.

Not to worry, Lady Juliet was a personal friend of Dom Mintoff, who served as PM of Malta but was also a senior figure in the Maltese Mafia. Juliet was mates with Gwynne and Dafydd’s pal Richard Crossman, who was also friends with Dom. As was the trade unionist Lord Jack Jones… See previous posts.

Lord Balniel was a big figure in MIND and a pal of Dafydd and Gwynne’s when Lady Juliet first entered the MIND arena. Lord Balniel served as a Hertfordshire MP. His seat was succeeded by Dr Death’s friend Shirl. Shirl covered up Gwynne and Dafydd’s crimes for years, as a Home Office Minister, as Education Secretary and of course as part of the Gang Of Four. Shirl’s first husband Bernard was an Oxford don who worked for the security services, as of course did Dafydd. See previous posts.

The Groomes remained at Tanllwyfan until 11 November 1982 and continued to live in Colwyn Bay until April 1984. From Tanllwyfan, Richard Groome went immediately to work at Clwyd Hall School as Head of Care and then Principal but he left in or about April 1984. It was in April 1984 that I had the operation under general anaesthetic that didn’t need the general anaesthetic at the C&A Hospital, weeks after complaining about Gwynne, as discussed in comments following recent posts. I have been told that I was deliberately given a blood transfusion to infect me with Hep B/HIV. It’s OK, it’s the Gang that we are talking about here, I didn’t become infected. Although knowing how the world works, other people will have instead…

Clwyd Hall School was discussed in my post ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ Kids were abused there…

After leaving Clwyd Hall School, Groome’s next venture was to found a ‘therapeutic community’ for young people, Milverton Court at Ludlow, Shropshire which occupied Groome from 1984 to 1990. Milverton Court is mentioned in a number of blogs and internet discussions re organised abuse in Shropshire. There was an exchange of staff between Milverton Court and the Bryn Alyn Community. Yet the Shropshire child abuse scandal that received media coverage was that of Castle Hill School, not Milverton Court; the Headmaster of Castle Hill, who played a substantial role in public life in Ludlow, was imprisoned in the 1990s for abusing boys at the school. See eg. ‘The Mentor’.

In June 1989 Yorkshire Television approached Alison Taylor with regard to making a documentary on child abuse in Gwynedd. On 12 Sept 1989, Yorkshire TV filmed Alison extensively for the proposed documentary. In the autumn of 1989, Tony Francis worked very hard to arrange a Case Conference while I was at work at St George’s. I knew nuzzing about this until some four years ago when I obtained yet more documentation that had been withheld from me for decades. The Case Conference was held by Dafydd’ mate Dr Chris Hunter of whom I had never heard until four years ago and evidence about my Dangerousness was provided by people of whom I had never heard as well as Jackie Brandt and Keith Fearns, two Gwynedd social workers. Brandt had unlawfully detained me in the autumn of 1986. Brandt and Fearns went on to perjure themselves repeatedly from 1990 onwards in their attempts to have me imprisoned. Dr Chris Hunter concluded, by November 1989, that I was Extremely Dangerous, Homicidal and he offered to write a Court Report saying this. I was not facing any charges when Hunter made that offer, although I was arrested not long afterwards after the Gang perjured themselves. See post ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’.

In Feb 1990, Yorkshire TV abandoned the Gwynedd documentary for a documentary about Castle Hill School, which was broadcast on 7 May 1991. Castle Hill was bad, but it was not a patch on what happened to kids in care in north Wales.

In Feb 1990, Gwynedd County Council obtained a High Court injunction against me after Keith Fearns and Jackie Brandt perjured themselves. The case was heard at the High Court in Leeds, although all parties concerned lived in Gwynedd. Sir John Kay issued the injunction. See eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

Think Yorkshire, Leeds and TV stars.

Re Groome setting up a ‘therapeutic community’. The Gang loved the idea of therapeutic communities. In 1990/91, Dafydd told Dr Robin Jacobson of Springfield Hospital that he had treated me in a ‘therapeutic community’. When I told Brown that Dafydd had told a barefaced lie to Springfield and they had never checked it out with me (Springfield refused to treat me on the grounds that ‘everything that can be tried has been tried, she even had a place in a therapeutic community’), Brown, as usual, was ahead of me and commented that Dafydd WILL have been referring to Bryn Golau (the locked ‘medium secure’ unit at Denbigh), he’ll have been telling people for years that it is a Therapeutic Community and furthermore they will know that it is a grim facility without the basics yet alone a therapeutic community, but no-one will bother to admit it…

The Therapeutic Community that was Bryn Golau had been subjected to a very damning inspection report just before I was enjoying the Therapeutic Atmosphere there, a report so damning that it was suggested that the Therapeutic Community should be closed asap. The Therapeutic Community was still there 10 years later…

John Allen banged on about Bryn Alyn being a therapeutic community and of course Frank Beck, the senior social worker in Leicestershire who received five life sentences in Nov 1991 for the abuse of over 100 kids in his care, used Therapy as his cover. Beck did truly bizarre things to kids in the name of Therapy and was viewed by colleagues as a charismatic man who was ahead of the game and Could Get Through To Those Kids. I noticed in north Wales that the most extraordinary things could/can be done in the name of Therapy and Professionals never question it. Members of the public do if they get to hear about it, because they haven’t been immersed in the insanity of the world of Therapy and they will ask aghast ‘How on earth is doing that to them ever going to help?’

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Ooh it’s All Different Now, people think we still use straitjackets!

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Ronnie’s Waterhouse Report stated that ‘Since 1990 Richard Groome has been a volunteer worker for SSAFA and director of a leisure company and he has also served as a member of the complaints committee of a regional health authority. We have not investigated the short period of about two years following the Groomes’ departure from Tanllwyfan until it closed because we have not received any complaint in respect of that period’…

The SSAFA referred distressed people to Dafydd for ‘treatment’ for PTSD. See post ‘Feet In Chains’. Field Marshal Lord Edwin Brammall was/is Patron of the SSAFA. Edwin Brammall’s brother Ashley Brammall was a Labour politician who for years held various leading roles in ILEA, while ILEA was sending children on placement to children’s homes in north Wales. See previous posts.

Ronnie’s Report commented that there was some anxiety on the part of Welsh Office inspectors about conditions at Tanllwyfan at the time when it became an assisted community home and there were three inspections between 17 September 1973 and 19 November 1975. The first inspection was triggered by a request by the Boys and Girls Welfare Society for a grant towards the cost of work done on the home, but Welsh Office Social Work Inspector O’Brien was critical of the condition of some of the toilet facilities, ground floor accommodation and bedrooms. Other concerns were “breaches of the corporal punishment regulations” and the need to increase the number of care staff.

‘Breaches of corporal punishment regulations’ will have meant severe on-the-spot violence, often unprovoked. At various points in the Waterhouse Report, when Ronnie was forced to admit that kids had been subjected to the most appalling violence resulting in injury, Ronnie used the phrase ‘corporal punishment’. I always interpreted ‘corporal punishment’ to mean ‘six of the best’, ‘the slipper’, ‘the cane’, or in Scotland, the ‘tawse’. I am not aware that even Dr Rhodes ‘Whacko!’ Boyson translated ‘corporal punishment’ as giving a 14 year old girl two black eyes or smashing a kid’s head against a hard surface, sustaining injury.

Peter Thomas was Secretary of State for Wales, 19 June 1970-5 March 1974.

Peter Thomas, Welsh Secretary 1970-74

Peter John Mitchell Thomas, Baron Thomas of Gwydir (31 July 1920-4 February 2008) served as Chairman of the Conservative Party, 1970-72 and the first Conservative politician to serve as Welsh Secretary.

Thomas was born in Llanwrst, where his father was a solicitor. Llanwrst was a hub of the Gang and also Masonic activity. I have no idea why Evil reigned at Llanrwst, it is a lovely town in a lovely valley, but there was much Gang activity there. Peter Higson and his sister Ruth Hussey both grew up in at went to school at Llanwrst. Higson was Dafydd and Gwynne’s ‘research psychologist’ at Denbigh, until he became manager of the North Wales Hospital, shortly after my complaint had not been investigated. Documents in my possession written and signed by Peter acknowledge that Dafydd was flouting the law but no, Peter didn’t get to the bottom of it. Peter was then promoted to regional manager of the North Wales psychiatric services and a few years later Peter became Chief Exec of HIW, Health Inspectorate Wales. Peter was the first and only CEO of HIW and when it was deemed as not being fit for purpose after years of Peter being at the helm, Peter was appointed Chairman of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. Why was there a vacancy? Because Merfyn Jones had been forced to resign after Peter had written a report condemning Merfyn. While Peter was Chairman of the Betsi, the mortality rate soared, the Board was placed in special measures, there was scandal after scandal, the Board sank deeper and deeper into debt, litigation went through the roof and the Board would have been declared bankrupt if it wasn’t a Health Board that was bailed out with millions of taxpayers money every time the Top Docs screamed ad screamed until they are sick. In Jan 2019 Peter was appointed as a member of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority. Peter also runs a psychology consultancy.

Peter’s sister Ruth Hussey is a Top Doc who trained at Dafydd’s alma mater, Liverpool University. Ruth worked as GP and then as a Public Health Doc. Ruth spent years as the Senior Public Health Doc responsible for the North West of England as Dafydd and the Gang drowned the region in Class A drugs and ran the ring there, sending kids and psych patients to abusive homes in north Wales. Ruth’s reward for overseeing that was a job in Whitehall with the Dept of Health. Ruth then became the Welsh Gov’ts Chief Medical Officer and was touted about as a role model for Wimmin. Ruth was recognised with, among other things, a honour from Bangor University. Peter was on the governing body at the time of her nomination.

See eg. post ‘Topsy and Tim’ for more details re Peter and Ruth. I didn’t write that post THAT long ago, but Peter and Ruth do so many disgusting things so often, that there have been yet more Peter and Ruth-related events since I finished that post…

Lord Peter Thomas was educated at the village school in Llanwrst and then Epworth College in Rhyl before reading law at Jesus College, Oxford. Many senior Gwerin studied at Jesus College, Oxford, it was their HE institution of choice eg. Archbishop of Wales Gwilym Williams, corrupt judge Huw Daniel, Huw’s dad theologian Prof JE Daniel, Prof Gareth Roberts who was Principal of the Normal College, an advisor to Gwynedd Education Authority and then Prof of Education at Bangor University and many more…

The Gwerin were particularly fortunate in that Harold Wilson studied at Jesus College, Oxford. Harold was there when Gwilym Williams was at Jesus College and Peter Thomas followed hot on the heels of Gwilym and Harold.

Peter Thomas joined the RAF on the outbreak of WW II. He spent four years in prisoner-of-war camps in Germany, moving from Stalag Luft VI to Stalag Luft III and then at Stalag XI-B.

After WW II, Thomas became a barrister and was called to the Bar in 1947 at Middle Temple. Ronnie Waterhouse and Greville Janner were both members of Middle Temple. Thomas practised on the endemically corrupt Wales and Chester Circuit. He became Deputy Chairman of Cheshire Quarter Sessions in 1966 and then of Denbighshire Quarter Sessions in 1968, serving in both offices until 1970. Thomas was a Crown Court recorder, 1974-88 and also sat as an arbitrator on the Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris.

Peter Thomas was an enthusiastic Eisteddfodwr, using the bardic name Pedr Conwy. Lord Maelor who spontaneously combusted in Nov 1984 was an Eisteddfodwr during Peter’s era.

In 1947, Pedr Paedophilia married Tessa Dean, the daughter of actor and film and theatrical producer Basil Dean and his wife, Lady Mercy Greville. Tessa died in 1985 and Pedr Paedophilia outlived both of their two sons; he was survived by his two daughters upon his death in February 2008 at the age of 87.

Pedr Paedophilia was elected as MP for Conway in 1951, winning a narrow majority in the marginal seat over the Labour incumbent Sir Elwyn Jones. Sir Elwyn was a bent solicitor who had a practice in Bangor, who’s son Elwyn was also a bent solicitor who took over his father’s practice.

When Sir Elwyn’s son died some years ago, High Court judge Eifion’s Roberts Paid Tribute to Sir Elwyn’s son, (Huw) Elwyn Jones, in Bangor University’s newsletter. Eifion Roberts was a member of Gray’s Inn, along with the Gang’s Big Mate, Ronnie Waterhouse’s former pupil master, senior colleague and friend, High Court judge Sir William Mars-Jones. Mars-Jones was President of UCNW, 1982-94. Eifion Roberts was the brother of Lord Wyn Roberts, one of the bestest friends of the Gang, who served as Tory MP for Conway, 1970-97 and was Thatch’s poodle in the Welsh Office. See eg. ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.

I have only just realised that Gwynne and Dafydd’s friend Lord Wyn was appointed Minister of State for Wales after the June 1987 General Election, while the Gang were busy re their Cunning Plan to frame and imprison me. Even more intriguingly, Wyn succeeded Sir John Stradling Thomas as Minister of State for Wales. So Sir John knew about the serious criminality of Dafydd and the Gang. Sir John Stradling Thomas was found dead in his apartment in Dolphin Square on 29 March 1991. Sir John made it known that he intended to give a speech regarding some aspect of the Westminster Paedophile Ring; he died hours before he was due to give his speech.

The Drs Francis took me to the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand in April 1991. The MDU represented them, although the MDU and their solicitor Ann Ball, knew that the Drs Francis had perjured themselves. Ann Ball was present at the Court case, although she said nothing to me or anyone else. I was unrepresented in Court and I have explained in a comment after a recent post that two people who had swindled someone out of thousands had their case heard before me. They were unrepresented as well and the judge explained many points of law to them and allowed them to leave the Court free people in order to prepare further for a future appearance. The judge did not explain any points of law to me, although I was later told by Alwyn Jones, my solicitor in Bangor that they are legally obliged to do that if a defendant is without legal representation. However the judge didn’t roar and bellow at me a la John Roch or Huw Daniel. He didn’t imprison me although it was clear that lies had been told about me by the Drs Francis.

On 7 May 1991 not long after my guest appearance at the Royal Courts of Justice, the Castle Hill School documentary was screened.

On the day that I appeared at the Royal Courts of Justice, St Helena Kennedy, a friend of Prof Nigel Eastman – one of the Top Docs at St George’s/Springfield who had conspired with Dafydd and the Drs Francis AFTER Eastman had received a letter from his colleague Robin Jacobson stating that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and Jacobson thought that Francis probably was as well – was taking a test case re Domestic Abuse and Wimmin in the neighbouring Court to me. St Helena is a member of Gray’s Inn, as was one of Gwynne and Dafydd’s bestest friends, William Mars-Jones.

Nigel Eastman is a barrister as well as a Top Doc. So which Inn are you in then Nigel? Who was your pupil master?

I have many documents in my possession from that time, including letters that Ann Ball had written to the Drs Francis telling them that they did not have the evidence for their allegations against me and advising them to drop their case, causing Sadie to write an angry letter back reminding Ann that they were Experts and were all agreed that I was Extremely Dangerous. The MDU and Ann Ball went ahead with the case nonetheless. What I cannot find anywhere is a copy of any documentation related to the hearing at the Royal Courts, although St Helena will remember events at the Royal Courts of Justice on that day, St Helena and the Wimmin supporting her via that protest outside the Royal Courts when St Helena was trying to set a legal precedent.

St Helena lost the case that day, but being St Helena, she went back to Chambers and had a bit of a think. St Helena took exactly the same case back to the Court at a later date and St Helena won! Consolidating her reputation as a Champ for Oppressed Wimmin!

Here is an extract from the wiki entry for the Sara Thornton case:

Thornton appealed the conviction, but it was rejected in 1991. The original trial had been largely ignored by the media, but Thornton’s case was taken up by Justice for Women, who were pressing for a change in the way cases of domestic violence are dealt with by the courts; the group, founded by Harriet Wistrich and Julie Bindel, began life as the “Free Sara Thornton campaign”.

[It was Justice for Women who stopped me, on my way out of the Royal Courts of Justice, if I would support their cause. Being me, I wished them all the best because I had heard a bit about the case. Let me know why you never managed to utter a word about Dafydd and the abuses in north Wales when you’re good and ready then Harriet and Julie!]

Following the high-profile campaign, Thornton was eventually granted leave to appeal. At a hearing at the Court of Appeal in December 1995, lawyers argued she was a victim of “battered woman syndrome” as a result of her husband’s repeated violence, something which had resulted in her losing control and killing him. Her murder conviction was quashed, and a retrial ordered for the following year.

[In Dec 1995, Nicola Davies QC announced that after reviewing the matter, a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal would not be in the public interest. This was part of a charade; Ronnie Waterhouse knew by then that he would be Chairing an Inquiry into that very matter. Nicola making that statement allowed The Hague to give the impression that public concern had caused him to have a think and Wise William had realised that an Inquiry leaving no stone unturned was needed. Nicola is now Dame Nicola. I have been told that Nicola and St Helena knew each other and had a little chat…]

Thornton faced her second trial in May 1996, and the twelve-day hearing took place at Oxford Crown Court. The prosecution presented evidence that Thornton had talked of killing her husband to a colleague, but psychiatrists successfully argued that Thornton suffered from dissociation – a personality disorder that causes an individual to react inappropriately to events.

[It was in May 1996 that The Hague stated that there would be a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. The Hague named Ronnie Waterhouse as the Lucky Lady who would be Chairing the Inquiry in the autumn of 1996. BTW, Tony Francis loved the idea of people dissociating, but he did not use the notion in any way that benefited the patients.]

She was convicted of manslaughter, and sentenced to five years imprisonment. However, she was released from custody as a result of time already served. Speaking shortly afterwards, Thornton said that she believed her sentence was fair. “I am not saying that every woman should be sent to prison, but for me it was fair. I took a life at the end of the day”.

Which was far more than many of those incarcerated for life or lobotomised by Gwynne and Dafydd did.

Despite the high-profile campaign, the verdict at Thornton’s trial did little to resolve the issue of how the courts should deal with such cases. However, in 2008 the Labour Gov’t of Gordon Brown put forward proposals to look at the issue as part of a planned reform of the laws governing murder.

Jennifer Nadel‘s acclaimed non-fiction book about the Sara Thornton case, Sara Thornton: The Story of a Woman Who Killed (1993) [the year that I wrote to St Helena’s friend Michael Mansfield with whom she shared Took’s Court Chambers!] ,highlighted the ways in which the legal system discriminates against victims of domestic violence. Nadel’s book was subsequently adapted into the film, Killing Me Softly (1996), which aired on BBC 1 within six weeks of Thornton’s release in July 1996.

The drama, written by Rebecca Frayn and starring Maggie O’Neill and Peter Howitt, appeared under the Screen One strand. The case inspired the song “Woke Up This Morning” by the British band Alabama 3. The song was later adopted as the theme song to The Sopranos.

There is no reference on any of my documents to the name of the Judge who presided at the case at the Royal Courts of Justice. I don’t know at what point the info was removed from my file or whether it was never placed in there.

Because of the nature of the case, it will have needed the approval of the Attorney General to proceed. The AG at the time was Paddy Mayhew, who was a member of Middle Temple, as was Ronnie Waterhouse.

Nicola Davies grew up in Wales, is a member of Gray’s Inn and practices medical law. Nicola has defended some pretty disgusting Top Docs, including Harold Shipman. In 2018, Nicola was promoted to the Court of Appeal. It’s amazing what being named on this blog can do for one’s career, Mark Drakeford became FM.

Re Sir John Stradling Thomas being found dead at Dolphin Square hours before his proposed speech about the Westminster Paedophile Ring, kids from Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor were trafficked to Dolphin Square, as well as to other venues. Nefyn Dodd, the thug who was the officer in charge of Ty’r Felin, used to boast that he was friends with Dafydd. Ty’r Felin was on the Maesgeirchan estate, Bangor and the kids there were registered with local GPs, including D.G.E. Wood.

During the North Wales Police 1991-93 investigation into the abuse of children in care, there were over 100 complaints about the abuse of kids, most of them relating to Ty’r Felin. The CPS sent a file to the DPP, but there was not one prosecution mounted re Ty’r Felin. Nefyn Dodd and his wife June were appalling, their violence towards children was well-established yet they never faced any sanctions. The Waterhouse Report makes reference to a forged letter in support of the Dodds purporting to have been written by a former resident who had complained about them; the letter was sent from Risley. Ronnie declared that he accepted that it was a forgery, so the Inquiry ignored it and made no further comment. Obviously I should just forget about the forged letter purporting to be from me that was found in the possession of the GMC and the many other forged documents that were present in my files, they’re of no consequence at all.

Nefyn Dodd had previously worked at Bryn Estyn and in spite of serious concerns about his mistreatment of kids and staff at Ty’r Felin was appointed as oversight manager of other children’s homes run by Gwynedd County Council as well as Ty’f Felin.

Dame Babs Mills was DPP at the time that nobody felt it worth their while bringing any prosecutions re Ty’r Felin or the Dodds.

See the source image

The Gang and their accomplices always used distraction techniques, such as the Shock Horror TV expose re Castle Hill School, where abuse was serious but nothing as compared to north Wales. In the same spirit, there were many Inquiries into asylums but never one into Denbigh. I have speculated before that because so much attention was focussed on Clwyd when north Wales did come under the spotlight that the real action will have been in Gwynedd. Ron Evans, the bent solicitor who worked for Gwynedd County Council, was definitely the lawyer behind the ring in north Wales. As an adult, Ron’s daughter became a lawyer, a civil servant and by 2010 was Peter Mandelson’s right hand aide.

Is it possible that the kids from north Wales being procured for the elite were not in any of the Clwyd homes, but were in Ty’r Felin? It is known that the kids there were sold at local venues and at Dolphin Square; were they also transported abroad? It might be why the dodgiest estate agent in Bangor, Tony Myers, ‘very English and ex-Navy’, took to selling over-priced houses in France in the late 1980s. Ironically, the only people in north Wales I knew who had second homes in France were Gwerin involved with that Gang.

At about the same time, social workers of the Gang began making links with their mates at Bangor University who were conducting collaborative projects with European academics. I knew those social workers, they were abusive, ignorant and had no interest in academic study. Sadie Francis also managed to become involved with the European scholars…

Dafydd was popping over to France to ‘hold clinics’ and he presented at European psychiatry conferences…

Previous posts have discussed the very inappropriate people who had been employed at Ty’r Felin, who suddenly couldn’t remember anything when the Waterhouse Inquiry opened and who then found themselves leading lifestyles of affluent professional people after decades of benefit-level subsistence. Splendid opportunities came the way of their young adult children as well. Keith Fearns, the highly abusive Leader of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team who terrorised colleagues and Empowered Service Users alike, decided that his true vocation was in social work when he was still living on Maesgeirchan and working as the milkman there. Fearns for years now has been the manager of a Ladies Football Team in Bangor; the Ladies are nearly all social workers or probation officers and the Team travels to unlikely parts of the world, including the former Eastern Europe. The Bangor Ladies Football Team are known locally as ‘Fearns’s Harem’.

In the wake of all the bellyaching over the VIP paedophile ring in north Wales that never existed, Ty’r Felin eventually closed and business came to an end. The Gang never stop completely, they simply move business to another location under a different guise. Could this be the explanation for so many members of the Gang becoming involved in Wimmin’s Charidees in South Asia and the Stahns when those kids homes closed? The Gang are heavily involved with rescuing very poor Wimmin from Prostitution and Trafficking these days. Call me old fashioned but the Gang haven’t got a very strong track record in that area…

Then there’s Meri Huws, the barking mad former Gwynedd social worker who’s patch covered Maesgeirchan who, as the years passed by, bagged senior job after senior job that she simply could not do. It’s amazing where one ends up after a stint with Ty’r Felin in the 1980s. But then former Gwynedd social worker Anne Coffey ended up as Miranda’s PPS.

It was just before my case at the Royal Courts of Justice that Alwyn, my solicitor in Bangor, looked through the huge amount of paperwork that was accumulating re the attempts of the Gang to imprison me and said rather disapprovingly, ‘This is costing the CPS a fortune’. Alwyn, I knew. I could not understand why no-one was asking why the same people were being allowed to repeatedly perjure themselves in Court and be exposed doing that, yet there was never an investigation mounted. They would simply do it all again a few months later, making even more florid allegations.

Where were the CPS? Where were the NHS and Social Services accountants? What was the MDU doing? Why were there never any questions asked at any time re the constant perjury on the part of ‘trusted’ professionals in senior positions and the conduct of the MDU? As for the AG…

Alwyn’s wife was married to a lawyer who worked for Gwynedd County Council. His father-in-law was a retired policeman who was a Freemason in Bangor. Alwyn was active in the Round Table; the Round Table carried out charidee work with the kids from Ty’r Felin…

Mrs Mills was part of the Camden New Labour crowd. She was married to John Mills, a very rich businessman who was one of New Labour’s biggest donors. John’s brother was David Mills, the lawyer who was convicted of accepting a bribe from Miranda’s mate Silvio. David was married to Tessa Jowell. Tessa was a social worker who in her mid 20s was Chair of Camden Social Services Committee. Tessa worked as a child care officer for Lambeth and then as a psychiatric social worker at the Maudsley. Tessa also served as Deputy Director for MIND. Wherever Tessa was, there were Dafydd and Gwynne’s partners in crime. See eg. ‘The London Connection’, ‘Tower Hamlets, Paul Boateng and Tessa Jowell’ and ‘Baroness Tessa Jowell – A Tribute’.

St Helena is a Labour peer who married surgeon Iain Hutchison in 1986, the year that Ollie Brooke went to prison. St Helena bagged her seat in the Lords in 1997, the year that Ronnie began his Inquiry.

One of Camden’s finest was President of the BMA, 1985-86, when Tony Francis began writing furious letters about my Insanity, my Dangerousness and the BMA helpfully provided Francis with free advice as to how to ensure that none of my complaints were investigated and to have me arrested for offences that everyone, including the BMA, knew that I had not committed. Meet Lord David Pitt; he featured in an earlier post, but I didn’t realise when I wrote that post how crucial to the Gang their partners in Camden were.

David Thomas Pitt, Baron Pitt of Hampstead (3 October 1913-18 December 1994) was a Labour Party politician, a GP and political activist. Born in Grenada, Pitt was the second peer of African descent, to sit in the Lords.

Born in St David’s, Grenada, Pitt won a scholarship in 1933 to study medicine at Edinburgh University where he was an active member of Edinburgh University Socialist Society. In 1936, Pitt joined the Labour movement.

Pitt returned to the Caribbean to begin his medical career, founding his own practice, and in 1943 married (Lady) Dorothy (née Alleyne). In Trinidad in 1941, Pitt had been elected to the San Fernando Borough Council and then in 1943, he became a founding member and leader of the West Indian National Party (WINP), a socialist party whose main aim was to deliver political autonomy across the Caribbean. Under Pitt, the WINP demanded self-government for Trinidad and Tobago, constitutional reform and the nationalisation of commodities industries such as oil and sugar.

After decades of campaigning, the people of Trinidad and Tobago were granted universal adult suffrage by the British Parliament in 1945. The first elections took place in 1946. WINP and others formed the United Front with Pitt as one of the candidates. He was not successful but he continued his activism and in 1947 led a group of WINP members to Britain to lobby the Attlee’s Gov’t for Commonwealth status for a Federation of the West Indies.

In 1947, Pitt again travelled to Britain and settled in London. He opened a medical practice in Euston, London. In the 1959 General Election, Pitt was the first person of African descent to be a Parliamentary candidate, standing for the Labour Party for constituency of Hampstead. From the mid-1950s, Pitt had become involved in local politics. After delivering a speech at the 1957 Labour Party Conference, Pitt was asked by Roy Shaw OBE, the then Treasurer of Tribune, if he would stand for Parliament. Footie worked for Tribune for years and some of the Tribune crowd were working for the security services, sometimes as double agents. Pitt was defeated by the Tory candidate, Henry Brooke.

Henry and his wife Baroness Barbara Brooke (Barbara was the daughter of a Minister from south Wales and was a Posh Lady who ran swathes of the NHS and social care system in Hampstead and in other parts of London) gave rise to a Tory dynasty, one of whom was Peter Brooke. Peter Brooke was a loyal lackey of Thatch and served in various capacities, including as Chairman of the Tory Party, 13 July 1987-24 July 1989 and then as Secretary of State for N Ireland, 24 July 1989-10 April 1992. Peter Brooke succeeded Tom King in the N Ireland Office and preceded Patrick Mayhew.

Take a look at the dates that Brooke served as Chairman of the Tory Party and then as N Ireland Secretary and compare them to what was happening to me at the hands of the Gang. It was when Brooke was Chairman that the Bridgwater contingent found themselves bumping into the Rich n Famous (see eg. ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’), including friends of Graham Chapman. Chapman who abused boys for years, regularly stayed in Snowdonia and knew them at the C&A Hospital, who trained as a Top Doc at Bart’s and for years worked closely with John Cleese, who grew up in Weston-Super-Mare, as did Tuppence Archer.

Tuppence won damages for libel against the Daily Star after the July 1987 trial. Tuppence and the Fragrant Lady Mary perjured themselves – Tuppence was jailed in 2001 for that perjury, although the Fragrant Lady Mary was never charged. – Monica Coghlan due to give evidence at Tuppence’s trial for perjury but Monica died one month before the beginning of Tuppence’s trial after a stolen car driven by an addict hit her car. Monica died in a hospital in Jimmy Savile Central in Leeds after the Top Docs did their best. My post ‘Tuppence and His Fragrant Wife’ details Tuppence and Mary’s many links with Dafydd’s network, as well as the underlining in ink by an unknown hand of a joke that I made about one of the witnesses at Tuppence’s 1986 trial who had been one of the many to whom my correspondence to Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authority was passed.

Cleese is a friend of Top Doc Robin Skynner. Robin and his Top Doc Prue facilitated organised abuse for decades. Prue was good friends with the St George’s/Springfield crowd. Springfield named their therapy unit after Prue. Dr Death is of course to be found in this toxic brew, both as a Top Doc who knows the Gang but also as the former leading light in the SDP, of which Cleese was an enthusiastic member. Cleese was so dedicated to Dr Death’s cause that he featured in party political broadcasts for the SDP.

I have long wondered whether Ollie Brooke was one of Peter Brooke’s relatives; Peter Brooke’s sister married a Top Doc from St George’s…

See previous posts for further details of the Tory Brooke dynasty.

 

During the course of the election campaign against Henry Brooke, David Pitt received racist death threats, as did his family. Pitt subsequently founded the Campaign Against Racial Discrimination. Two years later, in 1961, Pitt was elected to the London County Council (LCC) as member for Stoke Newington and Hackney North and served on the LCC and its successor, the GLC, until 1975. Pitt was the first minority candidate to be elected to this position in local government. Pitt was Deputy Chair of the GLC, 1969-70 and in 1974 he was the first black person to become Chair of the GLC. The GLC were willing partners to numerous kids from Inner London boroughs being sent to children’s homes in north Wales.

Pitt’s second attempt to be elected as an MP came in 1970 when he was the Labour Party candidate for Clapham. This had been seen as a Labour safe seat for Labour, but the Conservative William Shelton was elected. Racism was considered a factor in this election defeat as well, with an anonymous leaflet circulated during the campaign featuring the slogan: “If you desire a coloured for your neighbour vote Labour. If you are already burdoned [sic] with one vote Tory.”

In 1975, the PM, Harold Wilson, recommended Pitt’s appointment to the Lords as a life peer and he was created Baron Pitt of Hampstead on 3 February 1975, the second peer of African-Caribbean heritage after Sir Learie Constantine. (See previous posts.) As a member of the Lords, Pitt played a leading role in campaigning for the Race Relations Act 1976.

Pitt was a leader in the movement against apartheid in South Africa, with protest meetings being organised from the basement of his surgery in North Gower Street, London. Pitt’s surgery was located close to the Middlesex Hospital, Gwynne’s alma mater, from which a sex abuse ring was run, encompassing Soho before Soho became cool and trendy. Pitt was described as a black radical for suggesting that more ethnic minorities should apply to become police officers; this, ironically, angered many in the black community who felt that the police were institutionally racist. Lord Pitt is quoted as saying: “Some black people regard me as an Uncle Tom, while some whites regard me as a Black Power revolutionary. So I imagine I got it about right.”

Pitt described his Presidency of the BMA as his most valued honour.

In 2004, Pitt was named as one of “100 Great Black Britons”, as part of Black History Month.

In 2009, the annual “Lord David Pitt Memorial Lecture” at City Hall in London was initiated by Jennette Arnold in collaboration with the British Caribbean Association. A plaque at 200 North Gower Street in Camden, London, commemorates the building where Pitt worked as a doctor from 1950 to 1984.

David Pitt died on 18 Dec 1994, the month after Dafydd secured that High Court injunction against F and me from Liverpool High Court on the basis of an affidavit truly bizarre even for Dafydd; the MDU knew that perjury had been committed yet again…

Nelson Mandela unveiling the plaque to Ruth First and Joe Slovo in Camden Town, as Frank Dobson looks on

Gut politics key to defeating the evil of apartheid regime

To mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Anti Apartheid Movement, Frank Dobson explains how Camden provided its birthplace and inspiration for the struggle

TOMORROW, Friday June 26, it will be 50 years to the day that the Anti Apartheid Movement was founded here in Camden at a public meeting in Holborn Hall (since demolished) on the corner of Gray’s Inn Road and Clerkenwell Road.
The main speaker was Julius Nyerere, later President of Tanzania, together with Tennyson Makiwane representing the African National Congress, Vella Pillay, representing South Africa’s Indian Congress, Michael Scott and Trevor Huddleston.
Only the wildest optimist that day could have believed they were present at the inception of the most effective moral and political campaign in modern British history.
Opposition to apartheid had been building up for more than a decade.
In Britain the Committee of African Organisations (CAO) worked in collaboration with the Movement for Colonial Freedom, National Council for Civil Liberties (now Liberty), Christian Action, trades unions, the Labour Party and the Communist Party.
The Holborn Hall meeting called for a boycott of South African goods. The very first pickets and petitions were at Camden Town Tube station in conjunction with St Pancras & Holborn Trades Council and at Hampstead Tube station with the Hampstead Peace Committee organised from the CAO office in the basement of Dr (later Lord) David Pitt’s GP surgery in 200 North Gower Street.
The AAM was forced to leave North Gower Street after it was fire-bombed by right-wing extremists when everybody was out demonstrating against South African Prime Minister Hendrik Verwoerd.
It found a temporary home in Endsleigh Street, Bloomsbury, and then operated for many years from Charlotte Street in Fitzrovia before moving finally to Selous Street, renamed Mandela Street, in Camden Town.
Ruth First, murdered by South African state terrorists, and Joe Slovo, later in Mandela’s first cabinet, lived in Camden Town.
Our area set an early example of “Think Global, Act Local”.
Throughout 1959 and early 1960 the boycott campaign was building up with a lot of financial and organisational help from trades unions.
The Labour Party nationally stepped up its involvement after the 1959 general election defeat.
In February 1960 Labour leader Hugh Gaitskell addressed a rally in Trafalgar Square which was harassed by Oswald Mosley and his blackshirts – the forerunners of the BNP.
Then on March 21 1960, South African police shot dead 69 unarmed protesters at Sharpeville.
This shocked public opinion and galvanised the campaigners.
How come the British establishment and big business were propping up such a murderous regime and allowing them to remain part of the Commonwealth?
For the next 35 years the Anti Apartheid Movement organised up and down this country to do everything possible to build up what proved to be an unstoppable campaign to bring about the overthrow of the racist regime.
This was all done in collaboration with the African National Congress and others in South Africa who were impoverished and denied their basic rights as citizens and exposed to harassment, imprisonment and death when they demanded a fair deal in their own country.
The Anti Apartheid Movement organised boycotts, marches, protest meetings, publicity campaigns and petitions all over the country with particular help from trade union and Labour Party branches who organised leafleting.
Many, including a Glasgow union branch organised by Michael Martin (later Speaker of the House of Commons) raised funds to help their fellow workers in South Africa.
Some of this money was shifted to South Africa by the Defence and Aid Fund led by Canon John Collins – by devious means which would now break international rules against money laundering.
As time went by more and more people became involved and public opinion shifted.
By the time international and internal pressure forced the South African government to release Nelson Mandela and his colleagues it had become difficult to remember just how widely accepted the apartheid regime in South Africa had been 30 years before.
That consensus acceptance of apartheid hadn’t drained away of its own accord.
It had fallen victim to the stoicism and heroism of black, coloured and Asian and white people in South Africa and the support of decent people the world over, organised by the Anti Apartheid Movement here and similar, though less significant, organisations in other countries.
Having been involved on and off in the campaign since I attended protest rallies about the Sharpeville massacre as a student, I sometimes wondered whether we were doing any good.
Boycotting Outspan oranges, Cape apples and South African wine, getting wet through on marches, sweltering in the crowd at big rallies, shouting protests outside South Africa House, delivering petitions to 10 Downing Street, attending protracted planning meetings or going to New York to address the UN Special Committee on Apartheid. Did it help?
Did anyone notice?
Since apartheid was overthrown, I have had the privilege of talking about such things with Nelson Mandela and other heroes of the struggle.
They all say they knew what we were doing. That it helped sustain their hope.
That it chipped away at the edifice of apartheid.
That it helped make possible their bloodless revolution.
So to be in Westminster Hall with my wife when Nelson Mandela addressed both Houses of our Parliament as President of the new, democratic, non-racial South Africa was one of the proudest and happiest moments of my life.
The Anti Apartheid Movement harnessed the spontaneous outpouring of disgust at the horrors being perpetrated in South Africa. It involved all sorts of people – decent people.
Trade unions, human rights and political activists, students, people of all religions and no religion.
It wasn’t the politics of triangulation or of think tanks of compromise or consensus. It wasn’t the politics of big business or press barons.
It was gut politics – the politics of right and wrong.

• Frank Dobson is Labour MP for Holborn and St Pancras

Dobbo has a long and glorious history of colluding with Dafydd and the Gang’s network. See ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The Word – Part IV’.

Lord David Pitt’s pal Ruth First (4 May 1925 -17 August 1982) was born in Johannesburg. She was killed by a parcel bomb addressed specifically to her in Mozambique, where she worked in exile from South Africa.

Ruth First’s Jewish parents, Julius First and Matilda Levetan, emigrated to South Africa from Latvia in 1906 and became founding members of the Communist Party of South Africa (CPSA), the forerunner of the South African Communist Party (SACP). Ruth First, like her parents, joined the Communist Party, which was allied with the ANC.

First attended Jeppe High School for Girls and then the University of the Witwatersrand in 1946. She was involved in the founding of the Federation of Progressive Students, also known as the Progressive Students League and got to know, among other fellow students, Nelson Mandela, and Eduardo Mondlane, the first Leader of the Mozambique freedom movement FRELIMO.

After graduating, Ruth First worked as a research assistant for the Social Welfare Division of the Johannesburg City Council. Ruth First then became the Editor-in-Chief of the radical newspaper The Guardian, which was subsequently banned by the state. In 1949 she married Joe Slovo, a South African anti-apartheid activist and Communist, with whom she had three daughters, Shawn, Gillian and Robyn.

In addition to her work with The Guardian and its successors, in 1955 Ruth First assumed the position of editor of a radical political journal called Fighting Talk. However, journalism was not the only outlet for her political activism against apartheid. First and her husband Slovo were also members of the African National Congress, in addition to the Communist Party. She also played an active role during the extensive riots of the 1950s.

Ruth First was one of the defendants in the Treason Trial of 1956-1961, alongside 156 other leading anti-apartheid activists who were key figures in the Congress Alliance. After the state of emergency that followed the Sharpeville massacre in 1960 she was listed and banned. In 1963, during another government crackdown, she was imprisoned and held in isolation without charge for 117 days under the Ninety-Day Detention Law.

In March 1964 First went into exile in London, where she became active in the AAM. Many of the leftist network around Gwynne and Dafydd were members of the AAM, including Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate David Ennals, who facilitated organised abuse for decades in his capacity as a Labour MP, Gov’t Minister, campaigner and senior figure in MIND and as Callaghan’s Secretary of State for the DHSS. David Ennals was Chairman of the AAM, 1960-64; Ennals’s brother John was Chairman of the AAM, 1968-76. Ruth was a Research Fellow at Manchester University in 1972, and between 1973 and 1978 she lectured in Development Studies at Durham University.

Manchester University, including the parts of Manchester University that were not of the Medical School, hosted many of the Gang’s network, including a number of Bertrand Russell’s friends, such as social anthropologist Isobel Emmett – Isobel married a man from Croesor – and Dorothy Emmet, a philosopher. See post ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’ Durham University was a stronghold of Dafydd’s partner ring in the North East. Eric Sunderland spent most of his career at Durham University; Eric was an anthropologist who was also mates with the anthropologists at Manchester University…

Two substantial figures who worked at Manchester University with Gwynne and Dafydd’s mates during the 1950s, until they left for the US in 1962, were Top Docs Mervyn Susser and his wife Zena Stein. Susser and Stein were South African and had been founders of the anti-apartheid movement in S Africa. See previous posts…

Ruth First also spent periods on secondment at universities in Dar es Salaam and Lourenço Marques (Maputo).

In November 1978, First took up the post of Director of Research at the Centre of African Studies (Centro de Estudos Africanos), Universidade Eduardo Mondlane in Maputo, Mozambique. She was assassinated by order of Craig Williamson, a Major in the South African Police on 17 August 1982, when she opened a parcel bomb that had been sent to the University. Bridget O’Laughlin, an anthropologist working with First, was in First’s office when she was murdered and testified to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

First’s book 117 Days is her account of her arrest, imprisonment and interrogation by the South African Police Special Branch in 1963. It was first published in 1965. The memoir provides a detailed account of how Ruth endured “isolation and sensory deprivation” while withstanding “pressure to provide information about her comrades to the Special Branch”.

Ruth’s daughter, the writer Gillian Slovo, published her own memoir, Every Secret Thing: My Family, My Country, in 1997. It is an account of her childhood in South Africa and her relationship with her activist parents. The film A World Apart (1988), which has a screenplay by Ruth’s daughter Shawn Slovo and was directed by Chris Menges, is a biographical story about a young white girl living in South Africa with anti-apartheid activist parents. The film Catch a Fire (2006), about the activist Patrick Chamusso, was written by Shawn Slovo and Ruth First is portrayed in the film by another daughter, Robyn Slovo, who was also one of the film’s producers.

In March 2011, Gambia issued a postage stamp in Ruth First’s honour, naming her as one of the Legendary Heroes of Africa.

Now I am so aware of how close so many AAM activists were to Dafydd and the Gang and how they seek to influence the cultural landscape whenever that Gang looks like it might be in difficult, I have just remembered the film ‘Cry Freedom’ that swept the UK in 1987 and mentioned many high profile anti-apartheid activists, including Ruth First.

Cry Freedom is a 1987 British-South African epic drama film directed by Richard Attenborough, primarily shot on location in Zimbabwe and in Kenya due to political turmoil in South Africa at the time of production. It was nominated for multiple awards, including Academy Award nominations for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Original Score and Best Original Song. It also won a number of awards including those from the Berlin International Film Festival and the British Academy Film Awards.

A joint collective effort to commit to the film’s production was made by Universal Pictures and Marble Arch Productions. It was commercially distributed by Universal Pictures cinematically, and by MCA Home Video for home media. Cry Freedom premiered in cinemas nationwide in the United States on 6 November 1987 grossing $5,899,797 in domestic ticket receipts. The film was at its widest release showing in 479 cinemas nationwide. It was generally met with positive critical reviews before its initial screening in cinemas.

South African authorities unexpectedly allowed the film to be screened in cinemas without cuts or restrictions, despite the publication of Biko’s writings being banned at the time of its release.

‘Following a news story depicting the demolition of a slum in East London, South Africa, liberal journalist Donald Woods (Kevin Kline) at the advice of a black medicine doctor a woman who presents to him as Dr. Ramphele saying to him that Steve Biko was one of the few people who could still save South Africa…’

Just don’t mention Gwynne or Ollie Brooke…

On 18 Nov 1987 the fireball ripped through King’s Cross Station that resulted in a great many deaths, for which the cause was never identified. I was due to pass through the station at the time of the fire but I was delayed. It was after I began this blog that I was told that the fire was supposed to have killed me. I had read on an internet site before that there was a suspicion that the fire was an attempt to kill ‘a witness to a paedophile ring’ but I didn’t realise that it was me.

Ruth’s husband Joe Slovo (born Yossel Mashel Slovo; 23 May 1926 -6 January 1995) was a Marxist-Leninist, a long-time leader and theorist in the South African Communist Party (SACP), a leading member of the ANC and a commander of the ANC’s military wing Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK).

A South African citizen from a Jewish-Lithuanian family, Slovo was a delegate to the multiracial Congress of the People of June 1955 which drew up the Freedom Charter. He was imprisoned for six months in 1960, and emerged as a leader of Umkhonto we Sizwe the following year. Slovo lived in exile from 1963 to 1990, conducting operations against the apartheid régime from the UK, Angola, Mozambique and Zambia. In 1990 Slovo returned to South Africa, and took part in the negotiations that ended apartheid. After the elections of 1994, Slovo became Minister for Housing in Nelson Mandela‘s Gov’t. He died from cancer on 6 Jan 1995.

David Ennals died from pancreatic cancer on 17 June 1995. Dafydd’s mate Bing Spear the corrupt Home Office Drugs Branch mandarin died on 9 July 1995 and Peter Morrison was found dead in his house on 13 July 1995. Brown was forced out of his job at Aston University at the end of July 1995. The world was told that Denbigh closed down in the summer of 1995 but it didn’t. Neither did Dafydd ‘retire’ in July 1995; he agreed to retire as an NHS consultant in return for none of the complaints about him being followed up. Dafydd’s Brucie Bonus was that he was given the contract to provide Substance Abuse Services for the whole of north Wales; that expanded to most of Wales. See eg. ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’ Then there were Dafydd’s PTSD clinics, the care homes that he owned, the Expert Witness work and his later move into the supported accommodation sector, employment support, work placements, sex education for children. Dafydd is nothing if not creative.

Virginia Bottomley was Health Secretary at the time, so she’ll be able to explain this unique retirement of Dafydd’s.

Other 1995 deaths of witnesses included Peter Cook, Viv Stanshall and in December, Sir Charles Evans…

Slovo was born in Obeliai, Lithuania  to a Jewish family that emigrated to the Union of South Africa when he was eight. Slovo left school in 1941 and found work as a dispatch clerk. He joined the National Union of Distributive Workers and, as a shop steward, was involved in organising a strike.

Slovo joined the South African Communist Party in 1942. Inspired by the Red Army ‘s battles against the Nazis on the Eastern Front of WW II, Slovo volunteered to fight in the war. He served as a Signaler in combat operations for the South African forces in North Africa and Italy, and on his return to South Africa he joined the Springbok Legion, a multiracial radical ex-servicemen’s organization. Between 1946 and 1950 Slovo completed a law degree at Wits University and was a student activist. He was in the same class as Nelson Mandela and Harry Schwarz. In 1949 he married Ruth First.

In 1950, the SACP was banned and both First and Slovo were listed as communists under the Suppression of Communism Act and could not be quoted or attend public gatherings in South Africa. He became active in the South African Congress of Democrats (an ally of the ANC as part of the Congress Alliance) and was a delegate to the June 1955 Congress of the People organised by the ANC and Indian, Coloured and white organisations at Kliptown near J’burg, that drew up the Freedom Charter. Slovo was arrested and detained for two months during the Treason Trial of 1956. Charges against him were dropped in 1958. Slovo was later arrested for six months during the State of Emergency declared after the Sharpeville massacre in 1960.

In 1961, Slovo and Abongz Mbede emerged as two of the leaders of Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK), the military wing of the ANC, formed in alliance between the ANC and the SACP. In 1963 Slovo went into exile and lived in Britain, Angola, Mozambique and Zambia. In his capacity as Chief of Staff of MK Slovo codetermined its activities, like the 1983 Church Street bombing. In 1982, Ruth First was assassinated in Maputo. In 1984, Slovo, an ANC and SACP member, was forced to leave Mozambique in terms of the Nkomati Accord between the Marxist People’s Republic of Mozambique and apartheid South Africa. In 1984, Slovo was elected  General Secretary of the SACP in Lusaka, Zambia, and in 1985, he became the first white member of the ANC’s National Executive.

Slovo was a leading theoretician in both the SACP and the ANC. In the 1970s he wrote the influential essay “South Africa: No Middle Road”, which argued that the apartheid Gov’t would be unable to achieve stability, co-opt significant sections of the small but growing black middle class, or democratise: the only choice was between an insurrectionary overthrow of apartheid, centred on MK, or ever greater repression.

At the time the SACP’s orthodox pro-Soviet and two-stage view of change in South Africa – “national democratic revolution” first, socialism later – was dominant in the ANC-led liberation movement. Slovo’s 1988 “The South African Working Class and the National Democratic Revolution” defended the two-stage conception, insisting that “national democratic revolution” would “implement economic measures which go far beyond bourgeois-democracy” and so “erect a favourable framework for a socialist transformation but will not, in themselves, create, or necessarily lead to, socialism”.

In 1989, Slovo wrote “Has Socialism Failed?” which acknowledged the weaknesses of the socialist movement and the excesses of Stalinism, while at the same time rejecting attempts by the left to distance themselves from socialism. Slovo insisted on having a “justified confidence in the future of socialism and its inherent moral superiority”, and pointing to “the failures of capitalism”, although he now rejected the one-party state model.

In 1990, Slovo returned to S Africa to participate in the early “talks about talks” between the Gov’t and the ANC. Ailing, he stood down as SACP General Secretary in 1991 and given the titular position of SACP chairperson. Slovo was succeeded by Chris Hani, who was assassinated two years later by a white right-winger. Slovo was a long-demonised figure in white South African society, widely misrepresented as a KGB Colonel or Russian secret agent and attracted a great deal of press after his return. He was in fact one of Dafydd’s network and Dafydd did deals with anyone.

See the source image

In 1992, Slovo secured a major breakthrough in the negotiations to end apartheid in South Africa by presenting the “sunset clauses” developed by the ANC/ SACP leadership: a Coalition Gov’t for five years following democratic elections, guarantees for civil servants, including the homelands and armed forces, and an amnesty process. These were intended to head off right-wing coups and destabilisation. However, Slovo specifically rejected any compromise on full majority rule, and any agreement that “constitutionally prevented permanently” a new government “from effectively intervening to advance the process of redressing the racially accumulated imbalances in all spheres of life”.

After the elections of 1994, Slovo became Minister for Housing in Nelson Mandela‘s Gov’t, until his death in 1995.

Slovo’s funeral was attended by the entire high command of the ANC, and by most of the highest officials in the country, including both Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki, and he was buried in Avalon Cemetery, Soweto.

In 2004 Slovo was voted 47th in the Top 100 Great South Africans.

Joe Slovo appears as a character in two films for which Shawn Slovo wrote the screenplay. In the award-winning 1988 movie A World Apart, he is depicted as “Gus Roth” (played by Jeroen Krabbé). He is played by Malcolm Purkey in the 2006 film Catch a Fire. A song in tribute to him was written by Scottish singer-songwriter David Heavenor and appeared in 1993 on the album Private The Night Visitors.

 

(Huw) Elwyn Jones was, like his dad, a bent solicitor in Bangor. Elwyn Jones acted as the solicitor for the predators who fleeced F of his property, money and child in Dec 1992/93. Elwyn Jones spent most of his time at Bangor Golf Club socialising with other members of the Gang. He served as Treasurer of UCNW/Bangor University for years and no-one ever thought to ask Elwyn where the millions were going; Bangor’s coffers were permanently empty no matter what was flogged off to bail the institution out. See previous posts.

I used to see Elwyn in action in Bangor Magistrates Court and he really did treat his clients with contempt. He could barely bring himself to speak to them. Elwyn was known as a hanger and flogger among the solicitors in Bangor.

 

Pedr Paedophilia served as PPS to Sir Harry Hylton-Foster a barrister who was a member of Inner Temple and served as Solicitor General, 1954-59 and as Speaker, under Macmillan, Douglas Home and Wilson.

Pedr was a member of the Council of Europe from 1957 to 1959, and sponsored the Private Member’s Bill that became the Eisteddfod Act 1959.

Pedr Peadophilia served as Parliamentary Secretary at the Ministry of Labour, 1959–61, taking charge of the measures that abolished the requirements for employees to be paid in cash and the maximum wage for professional footballers (£14 per week in November 1960).

My how things have changed:

Beckswimbledon.jpg

Pedr Paedophilia was a junior Minister at the Foreign Office in 1961, travelling to Moscow with Alec Douglas-Home in 1963 to sign the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. Alec’s son David, who succeeded his father as Earl Home, married into the Gang in 1972, when he was spliced with Jane Williams-Wynne. See previous posts.

Pedr was promoted to  Minister of State for Foreign Affairs in 1963 and was sworn of the Privy Council in Brenda’s Birthday Honours of 1964, but left office when the Tories lost the 1964 General Election.

At the Foreign Office, Pedr worked under Foreign Secretaries Alec Douglas-Home and then Rab Butler, both of whom concealed Dafydd and Gwynne’s criminality and organised abuse. Rab Butler used his position as Mr Tory Party for decades to do this and then his role as Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, 1965-77. When Carlo was a student at Trinity College, Cambridge, Rab was his Special Mentor/Counsellor. Rab was friends with Trumpers who served as Mayor of Cambridge (see post ’95 Glorious Years!’) and after her arrival in the Lords thanks to Thatch and then elevation to the post of Health Minister, appointed Jimmy Savile to the general management task force for Broadmoor Hospital in 1987, thus enabling Savile to be appointed as Broadmoor’s general manager the following year. See ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’ and ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’.

Rab and Trumpers were also of Tuppence’s and Lady Mary’s circle, Tuppence and Lady Mary being part of High Society in Cambridge. See eg. ‘Tuppence and His Fragrant Wife’ for details of the Archers’ links to the Gang.

Rab is credited with doing liberal and compassionate things, such as reviewing the legislation re attempted suicide and with regard to psychiatric patients, but he pushed at an already open door re suicide attempts and all his ‘liberal suggestions’ re mental health legislation were ignored; Rab didn’t mention this to anyone. Rab established the Home Office Research Unit that funded junior researchers in Dafydd’s network, some of whom became Profs of Criminology and other disciplines at Oxbridge, when they studiously ignored the criminality of Dafydd et al as they repeatedly tripped over it during their research. See post ‘Rab, High Table and the Founding Fathers’.

Dafydd was promoted to the level of consultant in 1964, the year that Pedr was sworn of the Privy Council, but lost his place in Gov’t. The deed itself ie. Dafydd’s promotion might not have occurred until Harold Wilson became PM in October and appointed Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson as Health Minister, but Dafydd and Gwynne were mates with the previous Health Minister as well, Anthony Barber, who was every bit as toxic as Kenneth Robinson and a good deal more powerful. Barber ended up as Grocer Heath’s disastrous Chancellor of the Exchequer, 1970-74. See previous posts.

The recommendation for Dafydd’s promotion will have been made before Wilson and Robinson arrived in office. Dafydd was supported through Liverpool Medical School by the security services anyway, they spotted his potential as a suitably dangerous idiot who would do anything at all and therefore would make an excellent accomplice and eventually successor for Gwynne. Lord Charles Hill aka Charlie Corkscrew almost certainly had something to do with Dafydd’s promotion. Charlie Corkscrew was a Top Doctor who had worked for the Gov’t as a propaganda merchant during WW II, under the cover of the ‘Radio Doctor’ who dispensed Good Advice to housewives. See eg. ‘BMA Calling, BMA Calling…’

Charlie Corkscrew became a Gov’t Minister but was kicked out of Macmillan’s Cabinet in July 1962 in the Night Of The Long Knives, along with other friends of Dafydd and Gwynne who were causing havoc (see previous posts). Unfortunately Charlie Hill had been given so much power and being the Charlie Corkscrew who had squeezed Nye Bevan’s knackers until Nye took orders from him re exactly what the Top Docs wanted before they agreed to work in the NHS, Charlie was therefore also a Saint who had Helped Bring The NHS Into Being and Macmillan was obliged to give him a peerage as soon as he’d kicked him out of the Cabinet.

Harold Wilson subsequently appointed Charlie Hill Chairman of the BBC to Clean Up The Filth, in which role Charlie ensured that the organised abuse at the BBC expanded. See previous posts. Jimmy Savile thrived at the BBC once Charlie became Chair, Jimmy with his numerous Top Doc friendships and Voluntary Work for the NHS.

Charlie Corkscrew lived until Aug 1989, so he was very much alive when Jimmy Savile became a member of the Atheneaum in 1984, after being nominated by Cardinal Basil Hume. The Atheneaum is the club favoured by Top Docs and Vice Chancellors. Basil came from a medical family in Newcastle-upon-Tyne; they were members of Dafydd and Gwynne’s partner ring in the North East run by Lord John Walton, who in 1984 was Chairman of the GMC and refusing to investigate my complaint about Gwynne.

Basil’s brother John Hume had been the Top Doc who permanently damaged Anthony Eden’s health as a result of such a basic and serious error that it was almost certainly deliberate. Hume did that when Eden was Foreign Secretary, but Brenda had the knives out for Eden (literally) even then; the damage inflicted by Hume contributed to Eden’s later resignation as PM, allowing him to be succeeded by Brenda’s choice, Macmillan. See previous posts.

Basil Hume’s sister Madeleine’s first husband was Sir John Charles, who served as the Gov’ts Chief Medical Officer. Her second husband was Cabinet Secretary, 1973-79, Lord John Hunt of Tanworth, who came from Minehead and went to school near Bath. John Hunt was Cabinet Secretary in the run up to the case that resulted in Mr Thrope Walking Free From The Old Bailey. David Hole, the crooked MSF rep who worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School for Geoffrey Chamberlain, grew up in Minehead and still had family down there long after he settled in London. See previous posts.

John Hunt was Cabinet Secretary for the last half of Ted Heath’s time as PM. Hunt was I am fairly sure, Cabinet Secretary when Thatch had that lunch at the Clarence in Bridgwater…

Charlie Corkscrew will have built his security services links during WW II if not before.

Pedr Paedophilia narrowly lost his Conway seat to Labour’s Edfyned Hudson Davies at the 1966 General Election. Edfyned, like Pedr, had celeb friends and relatives. Edfyned was one of those in the Labour Party who ran into the arms of Dr Death in 1981, although by then Edfyned had relocated to Caerphilly, land of Ron ‘I was looking for badgers’ Davies. See previous posts.

Pedr returned to the Commons as MP for Hendon South at the 1970 General Election, holding the seat until he retired in 1987.

Pedr Paedophilia succeeded Sir Hugh Vere Huntly Duff Munro-Lucas-Tooth, 1st Baronet (13 January 1903-18 November 1985), (born Hugh Vere Huntly Duff Warrand and known as Sir Hugh Vere Huntly Duff Lucas-Tooth, 1st Baronet, from 1920 to 1965), as the Tory MP for Hendon South. I can’t quite work out why Welsh Pedr Paedophilia was selected as the candidate for Hendon South. I’ve never been to Hendon but it seems to be a rather dull part of North London and Pedr’s constituency included Golders Green. Golders Green is just a bit further down the road from Thatch’s former turf of Finchley; I always knew of Golders Green as an affluent Jewish area. A Jewish relative of a friend of mine mentioned a few years ago that Golders Green has a lot of Israelis resident there. The only even vague direct link between another Gang member and that part of London that I have spotted is that Archbishop Gwilym Williams was born in Finchley, although his family were wealthy landowners in north Wales.

Hugh Lucas-Tooth was Scottish with aristocrats on all sides of his family. Lucas-Tooth was a barrister, having been called to the Bar at Lincoln’s Inn in 1933. Lord Denning (born in 1888) became a member of Lincolns Inn in 1923.  Because of Lord Denning’s presence in Lincoln’s Inn, it was an even better Inn to be a member of than Gray’s Inn. I don’t know how barristers end up in which Inn, but there must have been some good fights to get into Lincoln’s. George Carman was a member of Lincoln’s and he was the most seriously criminal barrister in the UK; Carman’s junior colleagues Cherie and Miranda are also members of Lincoln’s Inn.

Hugh Lucas-Tooth was Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department  February 1952-December 1955, so his time in that office saw Brenda’s coronation. The Home Secretary, 1951-54, was Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate David Maxwell Fyfe aka Lord Kilmuir.

Lucas-Tooth held his post in the Home Dept jointly with Sir David Treharne Llewellyn (17 January 1916-9 August 1992), the third son of the Welsh industrialist Sir David Llewellyn, 1st Baronet. Sir Rhys and Sir Harry Llewellyn were his elder brothers. Sir David Treharne Llewellyn sat as the Tory MP for Cardiff North, 1950-59. Sir David married Joan Anne Williams OBE (1916-2013), who was head of the wartime Cabinet Office cypher office. They had two sons and one daughter. See ‘The Paedophiles Friends Of Cardiff North’ for further details of Sir David and his family, as well as other posts for info on his sons Roddy – who famously partied away on Mustique with Ma’am Darling, Mick Jagger, David Bowie and others – and Roddy’s dreadful brother Dai, ‘the seducer of the valleys’.

Cardiff North is a constituency hosting many affluent professional people employed in Cardiff University and other jobs in which facilitating or concealing organised abuse and criminality in an essential part of the job and thus all candidates for the seat, as with eg. Conwy, will be paedophiles’ friends. Anyone who isn’t doesn’t get a look in. It is why Julie Morgan, Rhodri’s wife, managed to get in there. See ‘The Paedophiles Friends Of Cardiff North’.

Julie the former social worker and Assistant Director of Barnardos goes back years with the Gang. As a first year student at King’s College, London, Julie returned to Cardiff to campaign for one of the granddaddies of organised abuse in south Wales, Sunny Jim. Sunny Jim’s success depended upon George Thomas being allowed to have his wicked way with boys unhampered. Sunny Jim’s wife Audrey was Chairman of Guv’nors of Great Ormond Street Hospital for years, while Jimmy Savile dropped in at will to ask 4 year old girls if they would be his girlfriend. Not that anyone saw through Clever Manipulative Savile, who would persist with his line of questioning as the kids curled up with embarrassment and didn’t know what to say, so just laughed.

There had been organised abuse at GOSH stretching back decades, Savile just brought Celeb Glamour and Sunny Jim’s reputation as a PM Who Cared was sealed when he publicised his Fund-Raising Efforts for GOSH. As Home Secretary, Sunny Jim did all that he could to assist George Thomas’s mate the crooked lawyer Leo Abse to rewrite the legislation re kids in care with the ‘advice’ of Dafydd and his mates, that resulted in thousands of kids after the mid-1970s being ‘taken into care’ by the Gang and linked rings. See previous posts eg. ‘Cry, Beloved Country’.

Here’s the link everyone: Glenys from Holyhead who’s mum and dad were mates with Lord Cledwyn who as the MP for Anglesey had spent years colluding with Dafydd and Gwynne, including with the organised abuse that they oversaw on Anglesey, was married to the Windbag from south Wales who’s mum was a district Angel, the Top Docs and Angels in south Wales keeping a lid on George Thomas specifically but also George’s pals in north Wales who were expanding the ring. It was Lord Cled who introduced Glenys’s new boyfriend to Sunny Jim, the Windbag didn’t have the sort of connections to the Labour Party big wigs in south Wales that Glenys did. There was longstanding serious organised abuse on Anglesey, including in the children’s homes there, one of which was in Holyhead.

See the source image

Blogs with interests in politics are dishing a great deal of dirt Ancient and Modern on the Windbags. I knew that the Windbag was hated in north Wales, but he doesn’t seem to have been too popular in south Wales either. None of this dirt which would have been enough to have sunk the Windbag back in the 1980s ever appeared or appears in the right wing press that hated/hates the Windbag. Perhaps Mr Charles Moore can tell us why. Or indeed the Digger and Kelvin MacKenzie.

Alexander David Frederick Lloyd, 2nd Baron Lloyd (30 September 1912-5 November 1985), was another who shared the position of junior Minister in the Home Dept with Lucas-Tooth. Lloyd was the only son of George Lloyd, 1st Baron Lloyd, and his wife, Blanche Isabella (née Lascelles). He succeeded his father in the barony in 1941 and took his seat on the Conservative benches in the Lords. Lloyd served under Winston Churchill (a close political associate of his father) as a Lord-in-Waiting (Gov’t Whip in the Lords), 1951-52 and as Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department from 1952 to 1954, and under Churchill and later Sir Anthony Eden as Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies from 1954 to 1957.

Lord Lloyd married Lady Victoria Jean Marjorie Mabell Ogilvy, daughter of David Ogilvy, 12th Earl of Airlie, in 1942. They had one son and two daughters:

  • The Hon. Davinia Margaret Lloyd (b. 13 March 1943)
  • The Hon. Charles George David Lloyd (4 April 1949 – 1974)
  • The Hon. Laura Blanche Bridget Lloyd (b. 7 March 1960)

Lord Lloyd died in November 1985, aged 73. As his only son had predeceased him, the barony became extinct upon his death. Pedr Paedophilia also had two sons predecease him, there’s a lot of prematurely dead heirs around.

The Lord Mancroft also got a look in at the Home Dept, 1954-57.

Political party Conservative

Stormont Mancroft Samuel Mancroft, 2nd Baron Mancroft (27 July 1914 – 14 September 1987), born Stormont Mancroft Samuel, was the son of Arthur Michael Samuel, 1st Baron Mancroft, and Phoebe Fletcher. He was educated at Winchester College, Christ Church, Oxford, obtaining a law degree and Bonn University, where he studied music. In 1938 Mancroft became a barrister at the Inner Temple. Mr Thrope was a member of Inner Temple as were/are the Havers clan – Sir Cecil, Lord Michael and Lady Elizabeth Butler-Sloss – who between them did an excellent job of assisting Dafydd and Gwynne and the Westminster Paedophile Ring, as discussed in previous posts. Mancroft served in WW II in the British Army.

After the war, Mancroft served in the Tory administrations of Churchill and Eden as a Gov’t Whip, 1952-54 and as Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department from 1954 to 1957. When Harold Macmillan became PM in January 1957, Mancroft was appointed  Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Defence, Duncan Sandys, a post he held until June 1957 and was then Minister without Portfolio, 1957-58.

Duncan Sandys was Churchill’s son-in-law. His place in Gov’t was widely viewed as the result of shameless nepotism. Sandys was friend and patient of Stephen Ward, the osteopath who was a welcome addition to the excesses at Cliveden but was scapegoated (and died as a result) by everyone when the Profumo Affair blew up in 1963. Gwynne and Dafydd were involved in the Profumo Affair, but their names were kept out of it completely. Sandys himself dropped Ward like a hot cake as the scandal unfolded. Sandys was mate of Edward du Cann, they both served as Directors and Chairman of Lonrho, including during the time that it was dogged by scandal and branded as the unacceptable face of capitalism by Grocer Heath. See previous posts.

 

Lord Mancroft married Diana Lloyd, daughter of Lieutenant-Colonel Horace Lloyd, on 8 May 1951. They have three children:

  • Hon. Victoria Lucinda Mancroft (7 March 1952), married Prince Frederick Nicholas of Prussia (son of Prince Frederick of Prussia) on 27 February 1980.
  • Hon. Jessica Rosetta Mancroft (10 May 1954), married Simon Dickinson on 15 October 1983.
  • Benjamin Mancroft, 3rd Baron Mancroft (16 May 1957), married Emma Louisa Peart on 20 September 1990.

As a young man Benjamin Mancroft ended up in serious scraps from which his dad extracted him with the help of Ronnie Waterhouse and his mates. Benjamin also developed drug problems and subsequently ‘worked for addiction organisations’. Benjamin Mancroft tried to raise concerns about poor NHS care in a hospital in the West Country some years ago. He was drowned out by loud shouts about him being a Tory Toff and a former addict. See previous posts. I have witnessed Angels behaving exactly as Benjamin Mancroft alleged…

Benjamin made the speech about the mediocre NHS staff when I was beginning to publish on the excesses of the NHS myself. I wondered at the time whether Benjamin had been set up by mischievous ‘advisers’ because the point that he was making was an important one but the way in which he did it left him very vulnerable to attacks from Those Who Care And Oppose The NHS Cuts. They really went for Benjamin’s jugular and I wondered what was going on…

Benjamin’s mother Diana Lloyd was previously married to Richard Bridges St. John Quarry. They have a daughter Miranda, Countess of Stockton (b. 1947), who married Alexander Macmillan, son of Maurice Macmillan, son and heir of Supermac, the Maurice Macmillan who swindled my father which resulted in his bankruptcy shortly after I was born, as discussed in previous posts.

Pedr Paedophilia served as Welsh Secretary – although he was by then MP for an English constituency, Hendon South – throughout the whole of Grocer Heath’s premiership.

Bryn Estyn saw much action while Pedr was Welsh Secretary, above and beyond the routine abuse of the boys there. In 1971, an inquiry was held after a complaint was made about David Ursell, the Headmaster’s methods of upholding discipline. In 1972, Ursell was suspended over those methods. Peter Burton took over as Head. In March 1973, Burton, his wife and his 7 yr old son were all killed in a car accident in Cheshire. The Deputy Head of Bryn Estyn also died in the crash.

Matt Arnold was appointed Head of Bryn Estyn in May 1973. Bryn Estyn became a ‘Community Home With Education’ in Oct 1973, rather than an Approved School. Peter Howarth appointed to the staff by Arnold in Nov 1973. Arnold and Howarth had previously worked at the Axwell Park Approved School, Gateshead and were part of the ring in the North East facilitated by Gwynne and Dafydd’s partners in crime led by Lord John Walton. Miranda’s pal Ernest Armstrong concealed the abuse at Axwell Park when he was a Sunderland Borough Councillor and then a Labour MP in County Durham. Ernest’s daughter Hilary succeeded him in his Commons seat and became one of Miranda’s inner circle. See previous posts.

Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth met at Ruskin College in the mid-1960s; Arnold worked as a part-time tutor there and Howarth was one of his students. Two Jags was at Ruskin at the time and was President of the Ruskin Students’ Union, so I’m sure that Prezza noticed Arnold and Howarth. See post ‘A Study In Tyranny’.

With regard to David Ursell and his alleged shortcomings and suspension as Head of Bryn Estyn, I have not found any details re the accusations, but even if I had, this is the Gang at work, we cannot assume that there really was a problem with Ursell’s methods of upholding discipline. Matt Arnold was Head of Bryn Estyn from 1973 until 1984 and what went on under him was appalling, yet suspension was never mentioned.

What can be concluded is that in the early 1970s, someone wanted two of the key paedophiles of the North East ring facilitated by Gwynne’s friend Lord John Walton at Bryn Estyn. John Allen had opened the Bryn Alyn Community in the late 1960s and the production line for child sex workers in north Wales had begun in earnest.

Dr Neil Davies and Dr Bob Woods are a psychiatrist and clinical psychologist who both followed Arnold and Howarth to join the Gang in north Wales after Davies and Woods worked in Newcastle. Neil Davies and Bob Woods were two of the big players in north Wales, but they both had much nicer manners than Dafydd and Gwynne. I always found Neil Davies very pleasant but I have some very damning documentation in my possession now written and signed by Neil Davies. He was fully on board with Dafydd’s criminality and I know that Mr Nice Guy Lay Preacher Bob Woods was as well. Bob Woods’ function in Bangor University was to get rid of clin psy students who looked as though they would blow the whistle on the neglect and criminality in the mental health services while pretending to be supporting them. I have been told that the teacher training tutors at Bangor University filled the same role re schools.

If someone in Heath’s Gov’t was in a position to ensure that Dafydd and Gwynne could expand their business in north Wales unhampered, Pedr Paedophilia in the Welsh Office was that man. Thatch was Heath’s Education Secretary at the time, so she took care of the schools as it were. Heath’s close friend and personal physician Sir Brian Warren was a Top Doc and Westminster Councillor who was facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring; Warren was married to Dame Josephine Barnes, a obstetrician and gynaecologist at Charing Cross, who was also facilitating the Ring, but unlike Sir Brian, Barnes agreed to undertake NHS work. Barnes was a leading light in Wimmin’s Doctors Organisations and she also called the shots on the Warnock Committee later in the 1980s. See eg. ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends’.

Keith Joseph at the DHSS took care of the rings in England facilitated by the NHS and Social Services and was ably assisted in this by his Expert Adviser on children’s social work Barbara Kahn, who had spent years concealing organised abuse in Oxford along with her husband, Top Doc Vladimir Kahan. Babs didn’t go when Joseph plummeted, Babs remained very influential in social work for more than another 20 years. See ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’.

Pedr Paedophilia was Secretary of State during a period of ‘violent Welsh language activism’, including bombings and a campaign by the Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg to remove English road signs and whenever Pedr is discussed, much is made of this, Ooh the poor man. Regular readers will know that many of those involved in that activism were of the very Gang that Pedr was and it served as a useful distraction to the organised abuse that so many people were facilitating, no matter what their political hue.

It was Saunders Lewis who’s Feb 1962 radio broadcast ‘Tynged yr Iaith’ led to the formation of Cymdeithas a few months later. Who was mates with Saunders and recorded his lecture and was a language activist? Dafydd. Who stood as the Plaid candidate for Denbigh in the late 1950s and in 1964? Dafydd. Who was one of the early members of Plaid and was mates with Saunders and Dafydd? Prof J.E. Daniel, father of the corrupt judge Huw Daniel, who worked as a barrister and then a judge on the Chester and Wales Circuit with Pedr. See ‘Tan yn Llyn’.

Dafydd was selected by the security services to work for them because of his credentials as a Welsh speaking Bethesda boy, an educated man but of the common people, not the English elite, who could infiltrate Plaid and violent Welsh activists. MI5 needed someone to get close to Saunders et al; in the mid-1930s, Saunders Lewis, Lewis Valentine and D.J. Hughes CHECK NAME had set fire to a bombing school on Pen Llyn and the British establishment became even more concerned when there was huge public support in north Wales for The Three after they were released from Wormwood Scrubs. They were not the stereotype of Thugs, they were three literary gents with much credibility among a certain sort of Welsh speaking middle class person. Saunders Lewis was, even his allies admitted, a snobbish elitist with rather extreme views on some matters, but Lewis Valentine was a Methodist Minister and COMPLETE HERE

I have been told that the panic re Saunders et al in the 1930s was directly related to the Abdication Crisis. For some reason the anxieties of those around Brenda et al went through the roof just before Brenda was crowned and as discussed in previous posts, the early 1950s saw Churchill’s Gov’t doing everything possible to provide armour plating for Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist at Denbigh and into the bargain MI5 trained up Dafydd to assist and eventually succeed him. Dafydd ended up ratting on everyone for whom he was working and running a massive crime syndicate. I presume that Dafydd was Chosen because of his proximity to Lord Patrick Blackett et al of Bertrand Russell’s/Sir Clough’s set at Croesor, but I don’t know how Dafydd migrated over from the Bethesda  underclass to Patrick Blackett’s circle in the first place.

J.E. Daniel died on 11 Feb 1962 as a result of a car crash in rural Flintshire; Daniel died two days before Saunders and Dafydd did their Tynged yr Iaith bit…

During the years of the cottage burning in north Wales, it was often alleged that most of the fires were the work of the security services, acting as agent provocateurs. I suspect that was indeed true. It was a serious mess in north Wales, with members of the security services facilitating that sex abuse ring because of the involvement of people like Lord Snowdon, Peter Morrison and Bertrand Russell. Dafydd and others were posing as Defenders Of The Common Welsh People while they lobotomised, banged up or killed the victims of celebrity sex offenders. There were and are people who are committed to and passionate about the Welsh language, but Dafydd and his mates were/are not among them. As a medical student in Liverpool, during the Tryweryn campaign, Dafydd popped over to Ireland and learned violent activist methods at the knee of Republican terrorists.

What did Churchill, David Maxwell Fyfe aka Lord Kilmuir and other people responsible for overseeing MI5 (see previous posts) think was going to happen when they let Dafydd into the hallowed circle? DUH!!! How fucking stupid could the Intelligence Services have been? Hey, Dafydd’s joined the Secret Services! Not that Dafydd can keep a secret, the mad old bugger has no confidentiality or principles at all…

So when Grocer Heath’s Gov’t was torturing interned terrorist suspects, as approved by Lord Carrington and using one of Dafydd’s psychiatrist colleagues to advise on torture methods as discussed in previous posts, Dafydd was mates with some of those who definitely were terrorists. Not that anybody stopped Dafydd because of that, I mean there was the ring at Kincora Boys’ Home to prioritise, because Anthony Blunt, Lord Mountbatten and a few others Who Could Not Be Touched were enjoying themselves there and the Kincora ring was linked to the Gang in north Wales…

Paddy Mayhew was the MDU barrister who, in the early 1970s, ensured that the paedophile child psychiatrist Dr Morris Fraser who was involved with Kincora was not struck off the Medical Register. Fraser then relocated to mainland Britain and worked at St George’s/Springfield and UCL, before running a children’s charidee in Cornwall offering sailing adventures. See previous posts. Paddy Mayhew was the Attorney-General who authorised the prosecutions of me in the High Court during 1990 and 91 requesting that I be jailed, on what Paddy knew was the perjury of members of the Gang. The MDU lawyers documented themselves that there was not the evidence for the very serious allegations against me, yet went ahead with the cases. See ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

On 10 April 1992, Mayhew’s time as AG ended when John Major appointed him as Secretary of State for N Ireland; Mayhew remained in that post until 2 May 1997.

Lord John Hunt – Sir Henry Cecil John Hunt, Baron Hunt, (22 June 1910-7 November 1998) – had a considerable influence on British policy in N Ireland, particularly with regard to policing. Hunt was best known as the leader of the successful 1953 Everest expedition; his Deputy was Sir Charles Evans, Principal of UCNW, 1958-82, Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate. Hunt was a Military Intelligence officer.

After Everest, Hunt returned to active duty in the British Army, being posted as Assistant Commandant of Sandhurst. Following his retirement from military service in 1956, Hunt became the first Director of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, a post he held for ten years. In Brenda’s 1966  Birthday Honours, Hunt was created a Life Peer for his work with young people, he and his friends having so successfully facilitated an international trafficking ring  that murdered young people who were witnesses.

Hunt was also the first Chairman of the Parole Board, which by the 1990s was choc full of the Top Docs who had concealed the criminality in north Wales after I complained about Dafydd et al. Every key player was on that Board: Robert Bluglass, Colin Berry, David Mawson, Chris Hunter, as well as other people who’s names I recognised as having been involved in their capacity as leading colluding organisations.

John Hunt’s advisory work on policing in N Ireland led to the Hunt Report with its recommendation for the disbanding of the B-Specials and creation of a purely military reserve force, which was created as the Ulster Defence Regiment. In 1974 Hunt was appointed to the Royal Commission on the Press. Lord Hunt died on 7 November 1998 aged 88 in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.

 

MAC (Mudiad Amddiffyn Cymru, Movement for the Defence of Wales) was a Welsh nationalist direct action group that carried out the bombing during Tryweryn campaign – overview – Owain Williams’s book ‘Tryweryn: A Nation Awakes’ – members of MAC were drawn substantially from south Wales, very few people from north Wales among them – according to Owain, MAC had virtually died a death by 1959. Owain’s book has morsels of info about MAC that I didn’t know about before; I’ll be following a few things up and hope to blog more about some of those involved.

What I have known for a number of years is that as a medical student Dafydd was involved with the Tryweryn Campaign and travelled to Ireland to learn direct action at the knee of Republican activists. They won’t have realised that Dafydd was working for the British security services and was ratting on everyone…

I have received info suggesting that Tony Francis might have been playing exactly the same game as Dafydd; in which case I can only marvel that the security services chose two such dangerous, mad, ultimately disastrous Top Docs to work for them. One would have thought that they had learnt their lesson after the Dafydd Experience. If Tony Francis did have security services links – presumably via Dafydd – one can only wonder who was using the Windbag and his wife and how. Francis knew the Windbag from their days at Cardiff University and maxed out on that, but then Francis was also using Dafydd Wigley, Dr Death and goodness knows how many other unscrupulous, vain, daft politicians.

During their bombing campaign, MAC received free legal advice from Bronwen Astor’s dad, High Court judge Sir Alun Pugh, who had grown up in Carmarthenshire. Sir Alun kept his advisory role to MAC quiet for years because he knew that he’d be finished socially as would his family if this became known. Neither did MAC boast about receiving free legal advice from Sir Alun, it would have rather damaged their credibility. However the matter is discussed in ‘Bronwen Astor, Her Life and Times’, the biography of Bronwen written by Peter Stanford.

Bronwen was married to Lord Bill Astor and was the chatelaine of Cliveden during the Profumo Affair. As well as Gov’t Ministers, Russian spies and the call girls, Bronwen and Bill Astor entertained Royalty. In her autobiography, Trumpers describes being a regular at Cliveden in the run-up to Profumo – Trumpers’s friend Sarah Norton was Bill Astor’s first wife – and meeting Brenda there at a dinner. Trumpers discusses unsavoury guests having to be hidden from Brenda; the unsavoury guests included cockney teenaged girls who were swearing…. See ’95 Glorious Years!’ Phil the Greek’s name has been constantly mentioned as someone who had been a regular at Cliveden and who’s name had to be kept out of the Profumo scandal…

Bronwen was of course abandoned by Bill Astor in the wake of the Profumo Affair. She was kicked out of Cliveden by the Astors, along with her small children and began a new life in Surrey, as discussed in previous posts.

Bronwen went to boarding school at Dolgellau, the home town of Ioan Bowen Rees, CEO of Gwynedd County Council during the excesses of the Dafydd and Gwynne’s ring. Ioan’s dad was a Master of the Grammar School in Dolgellau and there was only a difference of one year between the ages of Ioan and Bronwen.

Although Bronwen boarded in Dolgellau, the family home when she was growing up was in Hampstead, among so many of those we know and love, including those who had second homes in Cwm Croesor or were friends with those who did.

During the 1950s, Bronwen Pugh followed the standard route of many young women like her who wanted to build on their looks, have a career as a model and then make a good marriage, but Bronwen was much more successful than most of her contemporaries. Bronwen really hit the big time and ended up hanging out with the best in Paris and even became a BBC TV presenter. What was particularly interesting about Bronwen’s career was the PR that accompanied it. Bronwen was ruthlessly promoted as ‘Our Bronwen from Wales’; there was shades of Our Cilla from Scottie Road in Liverpool there. Bronwen’s Welsh roots and The Common Touch was emphasised. While it was true that her dad was Welsh, that he taught Bronwen Welsh and she boarded at Dolgellau, the Pughs were not plebs, they were a family that were so posh that they had almost left the Welsh elite. Then Bronwen married Bill Astor, which rather outdid anything that Ioan Bowen Rees’s family got up to and they were privileged compared to their neighbours…

While Bronwen was joining the Anglo-American Seriously Rich Upper Classes, Ioan Bowen Rees went to Queen’s College, Oxford, made powerful contacts and became a solicitor. Ioan soon returned to north Wales and worked as solicitor for Denbighshire County Council, the HQ of the Gang at that time (late 1950s/early 60s). The key players of the 1980s all cut their teeth in that era. Lucille Hughes and Beata Brookes were social workers from north Wales of a similar vintage who both did degrees at UCNW; Peter Walker was busy in the Young Conservatives with Beata and met Edward du Cann’s mates there; Dafydd went to Liverpool University to study medicine at pretty much the same time as Lucille was at Liverpool doing her social worker training; Mervyn Phillips, who became CEO of Clwyd County Council, was at Liverpool University studying law at much the same time.  David Hunt, who grew up in Denbighshire, joined the Young Conservatives when Beata and Walker were leading figures in that organisation, Hunt being a bit younger than them. Then Hunt studied law at Bristol University, after having been to public school in Liverpool. Thatch was busy on the Young Conservatives circuit at the same time and made her first splash at a conference in Llandudno. Bill Deedes was active in the Tory Party and a contemporary of Thatch and became very friendly with her and Denis. Nigel Lawson was a friend of some of Walker and du Cann’s friends and business partners…

This was the ruthless inner circle re the Gang who scratched each other’s backs during the 1970s and 80s and protected very serious criminals in the process. The hangers-on and others who vied for power were often barristers or businessmen who had grown up in Wales and had knowledge of the enormity of the criminality eg. Michael Howard, Geoffrey Howe, Heseltine.

Ioan Bowen Rees went into circulation after his early stint with Denbighshire County Council, he dropped in all over Wales (as well as into Lancashire), making contacts, until he arrived back in Gwynedd to run the Council in the early 1980s. Huw Thomas, the crook who served as CEO of Gwynedd Health Authority when Ioan ran the County Council, followed the same path in NHS management; after graduating from an elite university, Huw worked as an NHS manager in a whole variety of places that involved concealing crime that could prove embarrassing, including in the West Country, before returning to Gwynedd to put all that experience to good use…

Ioan’s parents were both UCNW graduates; his father was President of the Students’ Union and his mother was one of the first women graduates from UCNW. That will have set Ioan in good stead, his parents will have known many of the people who ran the region.

Someone drew my attention a few days ago to Debra Bowen Rees who is now CEO of Cardiff Airport. My informant assumes that Debra is one of THE Bowen Rees’s, of Ioan, who grew up in Llanllechid, where I lived during the 1990s. Here’s the spiel that accompanies Debra’s photo on Cardiff Airport’s website:

Deb retired from her role as Group Captain within the Royal Air Force in 2012 after a successful 28 year career, during which time she headed up the Air Traffic Control operation and was held in high regard as one of the RAF’s notable senior female officers. She joined Cardiff Airport as Operations Director in May 2012 where she held the position until September 2014, before stepping in as Interim Managing Director for just over one year. In December 2015 Deb was announced as Cardiff Airport’s Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer. In February 2017 Deb was announced as Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Deb is a member of the Board of the Airport Operators’ Association, Vice Chair of the Regional and Business Airports Group (RABA); Councillor of CBI in Wales; a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society and a Member of the Institute of Directors.

Cardiff Airport is owned by the Welsh Gov’t. I note that Deb was promoted to CEO six months after I began this blog. Being a Bowen Rees from Wales and having held high rank in the RAF, I presume that Deb bumped into Prince William when he lived on Anglesey and got to know the Great Guys at Ysbyty Gwynedd through his work with the Mountain Rescue team, a leading light of which for many years was Tony Jones, a Bangor University  marine geologist who was Bangor’s answer to Ollie Reed and a big mate of the Gang, including corrupt police officers.

Deb will have known the mad and violent Andy Jones who worked at RAF Valley in the 1980s and bagged himself a place at Guy’s and Tommy’s medical school, thanks to assistance from the Gang. Andy was my neighbour in Rachub and like me, he lived in the terrace next to the hall where Ioan Bowen Rees’s son Gruff Rhys used to practice with his rock band that became the Super Furries. Andy’s craziness and domestic violence were well-known. One partner of his fled and stopped him seeing their son because of Andy’s violence; Andy remarried and had two more children. His wife was sectioned for her own safety and his two kids were taken into care because of serious neglect. Andy continued to work as a psychiatrist in the Hergest Unit throughout it all. Then there were Andy’s violent attacks on animals that resulted in serious injury and a threat from a vet to prosecute him and Andy’s sex with colleagues on Ysbyty Gwynedd premises during working hours.

Other Top Docs and NHS staff knew about all this, as did the police. So how exactly was Andy able to terrorise two successive partners and present a substantial risk to three children over a period of years while continuing to work as a psychiatrist at the Hergest Unit? Andy was friendly with the Rev Wynne Roberts, the former vicar who was sacked for having an affair with a parishioner while they were both married to other people, who then found an opportunity as a chaplain at Ysbyty Gwynedd, where he told everyone what an excellent doctor Andy was, on the grounds that Andy has been a ‘service user’ himself and ‘understands schizophrenics’. The Rev Wynne sat on Mental Health Review Tribunals, Ethics Committees at Ysbyty Gwynedd and Bangor University, on the Service Users Consultation Committee, was then promoted to senior management level and given a role with regard to international links with developing countries. The Rev Wynne was also described as a music therapist after he began impersonating Elvis. Should readers unacquainted with the ways of the NHS in north Wales find this difficult to believe, read my post ‘Music Therapy Anyone?’ for the full extraordinary story of the Rev Wynne.

In 2002 the GMC refused to act on my complaint about Andy Jones after Andy had written on my medical records that I had ‘set fire to the hospital’ and done a number of other unacceptable things. Keith Thomson, the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust, wrote to the GMC telling them that I had made ‘outrageous allegations’ about NHS staff. Andy remained working at Hergest until his wife and kids were rescued from him by the emergency services, at which point he left north Wales but continued working as a Doc elsewhere and remained on the Medical Register. Andy only finally disappeared from the Medical Register after I confronted a rather better GP than many in north Wales and reminded him of exactly what I knew Andy had done and named all the Top Docs whom I knew had witnessed Andy’s excesses but had not acted.

 

Trefor Beasley was in the MAC, the organisation that secretly received legal advice from Bronwen Astor’s dad. Trefor, who with his wife Eileen, became revered as True Welsh Freedom Fighters.

Elieen Beasley with her husband Trefor

This is what wiki says about Eileen: Eileen Beasley (4 April 1921-12 August 2012) was a Welsh teacher who, along with her husband Trefor, conducted a campaign of civil disobedience in the 1950s against the Rural District Council of Llanelly in a demand for council rate bills in the Welsh language. Her stand has led Welsh language campaigners to describe her as the “mother of direct action” and her protest helped to lead to the creation of Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg

Catherine Eileen James was born in 1921. She was one of two children, she being the youngest. She attended University College Cardiff and became a teacher. She met Trefor Beasley at Plaid Cymru gatherings and they were married on 31 July 1951. The couple moved to Llangennech near Llanelli in 1952.

Eileen and her husband Trefor became leading campaigners in the right to use Welsh in the 1950s, as at that time the Welsh language had no official status in Wales: no forms by public bodies were issued in the Welsh language and there were few bilingual road signs. The Beasleys refused to pay their tax bills until they were written in Welsh, as at the time they were written only in English. This refusal led to the couple being taken to court 16 times over the course of eight years, along with many personal belongings being taken by bailiffs. Trefor spent a week in prison. After numerous court appearances the couple won their battle in 1960, at which point Llanelli district council agreed to print tax bills bilingually in Welsh and English Both Eileen and Trefor were elected as local councillors in 1955 for Plaid Cymru on Llanelli district council. Eileen Beasley is known as the “mother of direct action” in Wales and the “Rosa Parks of Wales”. In April 2015 Llanelli Community Heritage unveiled a commemorative Blue Plaque at the Beasley Family home in Llangennech.

In 1962 Saunders Lewis a prominent Welsh nationalist and a founder of Plaid Cymru, gave a radio speech entitled Tynged yr iaith (The Fate of the Language) in which he predicted the extinction of the Welsh language unless action was taken. This speech led to the creation of Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg (the Welsh Language Society). During this speech he directly praised the actions of Trefor and Eileen Beasley for their campaign for Welsh language tax bills.

May I call your attention to the story of Mr. and Mrs. Trefor Beasley? Mr. Beasley is a coal-miner. In April 1952 he and his wife bought a cottage in Llangennech near Llanelli, a district where nine out of every ten of the population are Welsh-speaking. All the councillors on the rural council which controls Llangennech are Welsh-speaking: so too are the council officials. Therefore when a note demanding the local rates arrived from ‘The Rural District Council of Llanelly’ Mrs. Beasley wrote to ask for it in Welsh. It was refused. She refused to pay the rates until she got it. She and Mr. Beasley were summoned more than a dozen times to appear before the magistrates’ court. Mr. and Mrs. Beasley insisted that the court proceedings should be in Welsh. Three times did the bailiffs carry off furniture from their home, the furniture being worth much more than the rates which were demanded. This went on for eight years. In 1960 Mr. and Mrs. Beasley received a bilingual note demanding the local rates from (Cyngor Dosbarth Gwledig Llanelli, the Welsh on the bill being just as good as its English. It is not my right to say what was the financial cost of all this to Mr. and Mrs. Beasley. Friends, including solicitors and barristers, were very loyal. Their trouble became the subject of the country’s attention, and the newspapers and radio and television plagued them continually. The court cases were interesting and important. For example, the rating officer’s reply to Mr. Wynne Samuel: ‘The Council is not under any obligation to print rate demand notes in any language except English.’

Saunders Lewis, “Tynged yr iaith

Lewis took the Beasley case as a model for future action, but significantly added “this cannot be done reasonably except in those districts where Welsh-speakers are a substantial proportion of the population”. He proposed to make it impossible for the business of local and central government to continue without using Welsh”. “It is a policy for a movement”, he said, “in the areas where Welsh is a spoken language in daily use” it would be “nothing less than a revolution”.

Eileen Beasley died on 12 August 2012 of pancreatic cancer. Language campaigners have said that Eileen and Trefor’s courage inspired a generation to take up the fight and led to crucial milestones in the protection of the Welsh language, such as the creation of S4C and bilingual road signs.

Bob was loathe to leave Dafydd and Gwynne’s mates behind but it was just as well that Prof Bob did decide to join the Big Wigs in Liverpool, because Dafydd and Gwynne had vastly expanded their crime syndicate, Mary Wynch and others were causing problems and all political parties were staking their hopes on the barrel of crap being concealed. So Prof Bob nipped over to Liverpool, where he could be of most help, occupying a prestigious Chair and the position as Welsh Office Ombudsman, duping people like me into believing that he had standards and was a cut above Dafydd and Gwynne, when he was mates with them and had spent years working with them until he was needed to go under cover as an Honest Competent Prof in the face of complaint.

Prof Bob was Honoured by Brenda in 1990. By Nov 1990 it was obvious that I was going to be forced out of medical research by the Gang’s mates at St George’s, just as Thatch was deposed by her previously-loyal henchmen. Prof Bob was only given an OBE, memorably described by Michael Winner as the honour for those who clean public toilets. Which I suppose is what Prof Bob did. See eg. ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’ and ‘In Memoriam – Professor Robert Owen’.

‘Now don’t you worry my dear, we’ll look after you.’

Prof Bob died not long after I began this blog. I didn’t think that the two events might be related at the time, but I have noticed that those Professionals who Lied To Protect Dafydd have all began dropping since this blog was born. They weren’t young, but they did vary in their ages and health status, yet scores of them have suddenly been overwhelmed by serious illness that their colleagues have been able to do so little for…

The Top Docs are now eating each other.

Wynne Islwyn Samuel (1912–5 June 1989) was born in Ystalyfera, and became an orphan at an early age. He studied at Ystalyfera Grammar School and then became a deacon and lay preacher in the Baptist Church. In the 1970s, Dafydd addressed the Welsh Baptist Union and explained that learning Bible verses in Welsh as a child can save one from a ‘serious moral collapse’ in later life. See ‘A Serious Moral Lapse’.

These two Persons Of Low Morals (to use the term employed in an FBI report about them) obviously went to the wrong school and indeed Church; Uncle Dickie and Edwina on their wedding day:

LAF.L.8876.tif

Although Samuel was given an opportunity to play with Glamorgan County Cricket Club, he was dissuaded by his aunt and instead became a clerk for Swansea Town Council. In WW II, he was a conscientious objector.

Samuel joined Plaid Cymru in the early 1930s and became active in the Party when he lost his job, following its policy of neutrality in WW II. He was the party’s South Wales organiser from 1940 until 1950, also editing The Welsh Nation, its English-language magazine, and gaining election to Pontardawe Rural District Council. He established a base in Ystalyfera, recruiting sufficiently that it was home to the Plaid’s largest branch in South Wales, and he was the Party’s first Parliamentary candidate in the south, taking second place in the 1945 Neath by-election. Samuel stood unsuccessfully for Plaid on several further occasions, including in Neath at the  1945 General Election, Aberdare at a 1946 by-election and in 1950 and Pembroke in 1970.

In 1954, Samuel was the Secretary of the National Eisteddfod in Ystradgynlais In 1960/1, he was President of the Baptist Union of Wales.

In later life, Samuel studied law with the University of London External System, and then obtained a doctorate from the National University of Ireland, following which he became a barrister and law lecturer at Chester Technical College. The rot was already rooted in legal circles in Chester and Wales by that time. Samuel also set up Cymdeithas Bro a Thref Cymru, an organisation bringing together the town and community councils of Wales.

Wynne Samuel was Vice-President of Plaid, 1962-64 –  who was Pres??

The Welsh Dictionary of Biography provides the following info for Samuel:

Name: Wynne Islwyn Samuel
Date of birth: 1912
Date of death: 1989
Gender: Male
Occupation: local government officer, Plaid Cymru activist and organiser
Area of activity: Politics, Government and Political Movements; Public and Social Service, Civil Administration
Author: John Graham Jones

He was born at Ystalyfera in 1912, orphaned and then brought up by his maternal grandfather, the Revd William Jones of Soar Baptist chapel, Ystalyfera, and his aunt. He received his education at Ystalyfera Grammar School. He became a deacon at the age of twenty-two and was a prominent local lay-preacher. He joined Plaid Cymru at the beginning of the 1930s at a public meeting at Ystalyfera at the same time as a group of committed local coal miners and tin-plate workers. He was offered a position with the Glamorgan Cricket Club, but his aunt was opposed to his accepting the post, and he had then become an audit clerk at Swansea town hall in about 1928. Samuel was a committed pacifist, and after the outbreak of the war he was responsible for organising a great public meeting to oppose military conscription, a meeting addressed powerfully by Samuel himself and the miners’ leader, Arthur Horner. He was dismissed from his post in 1940 as a result of his refusal to sign a statement declaring complete support for World War II. He consequently appeared before the South Wales Conscientious Objectors Tribunal in September 1940 and then registered unconditionally as a conscientious objector. For the next ten years, until 1950, he worked as an organizer for Plaid Cymru and also acted as the editor of the party’s English language monthly publication The Welsh Nation; he also contributed regularly to Y Ddraig Goch. In these positions he helped to shape the Plaid Cymru of later years, and his undoubted gifts as an organizer helped to sustain Plaid Cymru during the difficult days of World War II when many party stalwarts believed that Wales should stand aside totally from the conflict. Using the Plaid Cymru branch at Ystalyfera as a base, he arranged a large number of public meetings in the area and was unfailingly a captivating and powerful speaker. The Ystalyfera branch became the largest in the whole of south Wales. During the war Samuel called for opposition to the movement of Welsh workers to munitions factories east of Offa’s Dyke. He was to organise and spearhead a number of important nationalist campaigns during the post-war years, not least the campaign to keep open the coal mine at Cwmllynfell on which so many local families depended.

Wynne Samuel was one of the first Plaid Cymru councillors in the whole of south Wales. He was a member of the Pontardawe RDC for a large number of years. He also stood as the Plaid Cymru candidate for Neath in the 1945 by-election, winning 6,290 votes (16.2 per cent of those cast, and thus saving his deposit), and the 1945 general election (thus becoming the first ever Plaid Cymru candidate in south Wales), and for Aberdare in the 1946 by-election and the general elections of 1950 and 1951. At Aberdare in 1946 he won twenty per cent of the vote, a respectable poll for a nationalist in one of the Labour Party’s rock-solid seats. Samuel was also the Plaid Cymru organiser in the Ogmore by-election of June 1946 when the party candidate Trefor Morgan polled an impressive 5,684 votes (29.4 per cent of the total poll). These spirited campaigns proved invaluable to Plaid Cymru in helping to put down roots in the south Wales valleys which had previously proved rather impenetrable. He also contested Pembroke in 1970. His six (all inevitably unsuccessful) attempts to win a seat at Westminster bear witness to an extraordinarily persistent and tenacious character. He had also been chosen Plaid Cymru candidate for Merthyr Tydfil in the general election of 1964, but he was compelled by ill-health to withdraw his name.

Dafydd Wigley and Ioan Bowen Rees both unsuccessfully stood for Plaid for Merthyr in that era. Merthyr was considered by Plaid to be a Labour rotten borough and Plaid targeted the seat.

He was the secretary to the Ystradgynlais National Eisteddfod, 1952-54, playing a leading organisational role.

So Samuel will have got to know many an Eisteddfodwr across Wales, including all those mates of Gwynne and Dafydd.

Samuel was in the employ of the Pontardawe UDC, 1947-56. He studied, too, for an external Diploma in Public Administration and also gained external law degrees (Ll.B. and LL.M.) from the University of London) in middle-age. He was awarded a doctorate by the National University of Ireland for a thesis on the native Welsh laws of Hywel Dda, a subject which had attracted his attention since his youth. He gave a number of public lectures on the standing of women in the Welsh laws.

The laws of Hywel Dda are considered by many to be far fairer in many ways that much present day legislation. Sadly Wynne Samuel’s mates didn’t act within the spirit of the laws of Hywel Dda.

He was called to the bar from Grays Inn in 1956,

So Wynne Samuel joined William Mars-Jones at Gray’s Inn.

and was offered a post with the UNO at Geneva. He was appointed lecturer in law at Chester Technical College in 1964 and became town clerk of Tenby, the unofficial capital of Pembrokeshire, in 1965. He served, too, as legal adviser to the South Pembrokeshire County Council.

The longstanding ring in West Wales linked to Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang included on its turf Pembrokeshire. The Gang members circulated around Wales – as well as regions of England – and many leading lights in the Gang in north Wales in the 1980s and 90s had passed through Pembrokeshire.

He was president of the West Glamorgan Baptist Association in 1950 and of the Baptist Union of Wales in 1960-61, the youngest person ever to hold this position.

I know Baptists who are absolutely OK, but the Gang infiltrated most Churches, including the Baptists.

He worked as a legal advisor to the Dyfed County Council from its inception in April 1974 until his retirement.

Ioan Bowen Rees held a senior role in Dyfed County Council before moving north to run Gwynedd County Council. Mark Drakeford, Wales’s FM, was a social worker in Dyfed. The Labour MP Nia Griffith was married to a Dyfed social worker.

He was also a member of the Welsh Council of the BBC.

The Gang had a good supply of members in the BBC, at all levels.

He was also a founder member of Cymdeithas Bro a Thref Cymru (The Society of Welsh Town and Community Councils) where he successfully co-ordinated the activities of hundreds of mini-parliaments in the Principality, a role which some considered his prime achievement. It became an enduring monument to his work and energy. He was married with one daughter. Samuel died at his Cardiff home on 5 June 1989 and was cremated at Thornhill Crematorium, Cardiff. He had made an immense contribution to local government in Wales and to the development of Plaid Cymru.

Nearly everyone in Wales agrees that local gov’t in Wales is rotten through and through. I don’t have the experience of local gov’t in England (or Scotland) to know whether local gov’t in those nations is any less corrupt than in Wales. I suspect that as with the NHS and Universities, the corruption in English local authorities is simply carried out by much more powerful people than Wynne Samuel et al and is more effectively denied or concealed. After all, the bent Councillors in English boroughs end up as MPs, even if they have been caught red-handed in close proximity to serious crime. As Little Nell and Jack Straw know.

 

On 29 Sept 2012 the Indie published an obituary for Eileen Beasley written by the man who has written many hagiographies of the Gang’s friends and relations, Meic Stephens

The Rosa Parks of the language movement in Wales was a polite but steel-willed housewife who, with her husband, refused to pay rates on their house in Llangennech, Carmarthenshire, while Llanelli Rural District Council issued demands in English only.

In this Eileen and Trefor Beasley had, at first, the support of nobody but themselves. They reasoned that as they lived their lives through the Welsh language, and their village was Welsh-speaking, as were the majority ofCouncil members, it was reasonable that they should be able to use the language in their dealings with officialdom.

 But the Council, like most others in Wales in the 1950s, had never thought of providing services in Welsh. They flatly refused to comply with the Beasleys’ request, continuing to communicate with them in English only. In this they greatly underestimated the couple’s strong wills. Bailiffs began calling at their home and removing household goods such as chairs and tables, and then the family’s piano, the carpets, the bookcases and even food from the larder, distraining goods to the value of the rates that remained unpaid. Having bailiffs in the house was, for the law-abiding Beasleys, a distressing experience, especially as they would arrive without warning and, without consultation, take items of furniture that had been wedding presents.
 
 Legal proceedings for the non-payment of rates were taken against theBeasleys on 12 occasions but still they would not accept demands in English. They could hardly afford to pay the fines, especially as they lived on a coal-miner’s wage and had two small children, and they stoutly refused to do so as a matter of principle.

The campaign that had begun in 1952 came to an end in 1960 when the Council grudgingly issued a Welsh form and the Beasleys promptly paid their rates.

The Beasleys’ campaign began the year that Churchill made MI5 answerable to the Home Secretary, Dafydd and Gwynne’s friend David Maxwell Fyfe aka Dai Bananas aka Lord Kilmuir. Maxwell Fyfe was a lawyer who was happy to act for Gang members in petty local disputes even after he had occupied roles such as Home Secretary and Lord Chancellor, lest anyone forgot their place in the pecking order… People in north Wales quaked at the idea of taking on Dai Bananas, Gwynne and their mates, they knew that it would lead to ruin.

In 1958 Eileen was elected as a Plaid Cymru member of the same District Council, where she continued to press for a degree of official status for the language.

MI5’s eccentric and excessive plant Dafydd qualified as a Top Doc in 1957…

Bertrand Russell made his permanent home near Cwm Croesor in the mid-1950s and senior positions across north Wales were rapidly filling up with Safe Pairs of Hands. The landscape was being prepared for north Wales to become the organised abuse capital of the UK and the main production line for child sex workers, particularly boys.

Meanwhile, Our Bronwen was becoming an international star!

In 1962 their determination proved a stimulus to the activities of Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg (the Welsh Language Society), especially as Saunders Lewis, in his famous radio broadcast of that year, Tynged yr Iaith [The Fate of the Language], singled out the Beasleys for praise and urged supporters to emulate their civil disobedience.

By Order Of The Pinnacle Of The British Establishment.

The challenge was taken up instead by the Cymdeithas which, over the last half-century, has played a leading role in the achievement of many important goals in such areas as broadcasting, education, the law, and local government, while Plaid Cymru has been left free to concentrate on its political agenda. Today the language is much more visible and used in an ever-increasing variety of contexts.

It’s called Cultural Domination. Merfyn Jones levelled that accusation at the  Welsh Nonconformist Elite of the 19th century, who, Merfyn claimed, reconstructed the image of Wales by their control of published material. Merfyn maintained that although that cohort never operated the economic levers, they exerted a very strong influence on exactly the fields listed above as being influenced by Cymdeithas.

My how things haven’t changed.

See the source image

Don’t you agree Merfyn?

Look at who occupies the senior jobs in those fields; it is not the plebs or children of plebs… Furthermore, many of those jobs are filled by people who find less than perfect Welsh, or indeed simply forms of Welsh used by young people, very distressing. They alienate many young or less privileged Welsh speakers by banging on about their ‘terrible Welsh’. There are roles in which it is necessary to know grammatically correct Welsh to a high standard, but watching the ‘purists’ berating young Welsh speakers reminds me of people who would bellow at me when I was a teenager ‘To whom does that belong?’ if I said ‘Who’s is that’s?’

The Beasleys’ stand inspired a generation of young Welsh Nationalists tochallenge the law, for which many were fined and some imprisoned, and they remained heroes of the movement ever after. Trefor spent a week in prison for refusing to acknowledge an English-only fine for the non-payment of road tax. Like her husband, who was the very type of a cultured miner, widely read, politically aware and radically inclined, Eileen was highly literate; she published a selection of her short stories as Yr Eithin Pigog (The prickly gorse) in 1997.

The Rosa Parks of Wales hit the bookshelves the year that the Waterhouse Inquiry opened then. There was indeed a great flurry of activity at that time to remind everyone that Wales was a nation of artists, poets, novelists, harpists, even rock musicians (think Gruff Rhys, son of Ioan Bowen Rees; Cerys Matthews, daughter of a Top Doc from West Wales; Huw Bumford, a teacher from a school in Pontypridd who’s colleague drama teacher John Owen spent years sexually abusing the pupils and who was found dead just before his trial opened…). See eg. ‘Feet In Chains’ and ‘The International Language Of Screaming’.

At the recent National Eisteddfod, held near Cowbridge in the Vale of Glamorgan, there was an empty stall representing the Beasleys’ living room stripped of its furniture, which was meant to be a tribute to the courage and dignity of a couple who were well-liked and generally admired. It was a poignant reminder of what sometimes has to be done to persuade officialdom on a point of principle whenever it is a question of the public use of the Welsh language.

Catherine Eileen James, teacher and Welsh language campaigner: born Henllan Amgoed, Carmarthenshire 4 April 1921; married Trefor Beasley (died 1994; one son, one daughter); died Henllan Amgoed 12 August 2012.

Eileen Beasley
Mrs Beasley was described as the “mother of direct action”

See the source image

Tributes have been paid to a woman credited with leading the way in fighting for the right to use Welsh in the 1950s. Eileen Beasley, who died at the age of 91, refused to pay council rates until she received a demand in Welsh. Many of her possessions from the family home in Llangennech near Llanelli were removed by court bailiffs as a result.

She has been described as the “mother of direct action” by Welsh language campaigners. Teacher Mrs Beasley and her husband Trevor took on the fight with the Rural District Council of Llanelly after it refused to issue them with a bill in the Welsh language. The language society said at the time 90% of the local population near their home spoke Welsh, as did councillors on the local council, and council officials.

When a letter arrived from the council, Mrs Beasley wrote to ask for it in Welsh. It said the couple appeared before magistrates dozens of times, and insisted the court proceedings should be in Welsh.

Former chair of Cymdeithas yr Iaith (Welsh Language Society) Angharad Tomos said Mrs Beasley’s fight “persevered for a decade at a time when such action was unheard of in Wales. Alone, the Beasleys lit the flame of hope,” she added. The society said the family’s stand was the first such act of “civil disobedience” in Wales in support of the Welsh language.

The family won their battle for a Welsh language rate demand in 1960. The couple can be heard speaking about their experiences on a Welsh-language BBC resources for teachers web site.

Mrs Beasley recalls the time saying: “The bailiffs came 10 times. In 1959, in particular, they cleared the parlour of the carpet, the piano, the oak bookcase, and a mirror. Some of them were wedding presents.” Mr Beasley added: “We’d started the fight so we had to see it through.”

Cynog Dafis was a family friend, and a founding member of the Welsh Language Society.

Cynog Dafis won his Commons seat on 9 April 1992 after doing a deal with the Green Party; Dafis tried to construct himself as a Plaid Green but soon both Plaid and the Greens began denouncing him as unprincipled. The seat had previously been held by Liberal MP Geraint Howells, who had been one of the MPs who had signed an Early Day Motion in support of Mary Wynch. That MP fared rather less well than the others who signed the EDM who all suddenly stopped raising concerns about Mary, only to find themselves in the Lords when they forgot about her. Geraint did get his peerage, but Cynog’s dealing with the Gang caused a bit of bother. David Bellotti, the Liberal MP who tabled the EDM, lost his seat at the next election, never returned to the Commons and was not given a peerage. See previous posts…

Geraint Howells’s daughter Gaenor is a newsreader with BBC World Service. She’s never read any news out about the Gang, although her dad was mates with some of them, while being tripped up by others.

 

[Cynog Dafis] said the Beasley’s stand had been an “extraordinary confrontation” with the district council. Mr Dafis said the couple had won their case “partly because they marshalled support from here, there and everywhere”.

He added that Saunders Lewis in his “fate of the language” radio lecture used the couple as an “example or model for the pattern of civil disobedience that he proposed in response to the almost entire absence of official recognition that Welsh then had”.

“She was a remarkable kind of person… Welsh rural radicalism at its most progressive. An unyielding supporter of Welsh Nationalism,” he said.

‘Wales Online’ Paid Tribute in the wake of the death of the wife of the man who received free legal advice re the bombing campaign from the father-in-law of Lord Astor:

For her followers her courageous stand in early 1950s Britain in braving bailiffs and court appearances to demand a Welsh language tax bill made her the Rosa Parks of Wales. And after 16 court appearances Eileen Beasley was left with little but an empty house to show for her fight to put Welsh on an equal footing with English. But Mrs Beasley, who died of pancreatic cancer aged 91 on Sunday, has been described as the “mother of direct action” in Wales, whose protest led to the creation of Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg (the Welsh Language Society).

Language activists yesterday paid tribute to Mrs Beasley, saying her courage alongside fellow campaigner and husband Trefor inspired a generation to take up the fight and led to crucial milestones like the creation of S4C

Thatch renegaded on the promise of the creation of S4C. She was only persuaded to keep to the original agreement when Willie Whitelaw received a visit from three Gang members – including Archbishop Gwilym Williams and the UCNW PVC the Rev Alwyn Roberts – who reminded Thatch of the service that Dafydd was providing to Peter Morrison, George Thomas etc. I have also been told that they knew that I was lurking in the depths of UCNW as a student and my friend was up in Stirling University and had already been noted to be a political activist; senior managers at UCNW had a close link with Stirling and of course Brown was at Aston University, studying in the Dept that was carrying out research into dyslexia with Dafydd’s mates in the Dept of Psychology at UCNW. I understand that Tom King let Willie Whitelaw know that things could get tricky if S4C didn’t materialise.

So S4C wasn’t the work of the Rosa Parks of Wales, it was the unwitting work of three young adult offspring of Tory families from Somerset whom Tom King viewed as traitors beyond the pale.

and  bilingual signage.

Mrs Beasley, from Llangennech, near Llanelli, eventually won her battle with her local rural district council for a tax demand in Welsh. But her eight-year stand beginning in 1952 saw bailiffs remove all the couple’s possessions right down to treasured wedding gifts.

Former Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg (Welsh Language Society) chair Angharad Tomos said: “I would call her the founder of Cymdeithas yr Iaith because what she did in 1952 in asking for a Welsh form – nobody had ever done that before.”
The couple juggled with a young family as well as fighting to advance the language – their children Delyth and Elidyr were born in the midst of their struggle for a bilingual form. Ms Tomos added: “They (the bailiffs) even took the carpets and it was just an empty living room. The only thing they left was some jam her husband had made.”
I do not believe that it was acceptable for the Beasleys to lose their furniture just because they wanted the right to communicate with officialdom in their first language, but the irony is that decades later Gwynedd County Council – led by Plaid and containing many personal friends of Delyth Prys, Eileen’s daughter – sent targets of the Gang Court orders for the non-payment of Council Tax that had been paid. There were no warnings, just er bailiffs after the Court hearing that the targets did not know had happened. For a real treat, if targets had seriously pissed the Gang off, demands for money and bailiffs would come raining down thick and fast.
Gwynedd favoured using a particularly unpleasant bailiff, a fat ginger scouse covered in bling who stank of naff aftershave and drove an unmarked van, calling himself ‘Mr Jones’ who wasn’t above physically threatening people who did not owe money. He seized the microwave of a single parent with a disabled child from Llanberis. A few months later, a young woman was found hanging dead in Deiniolen. It transpired that she had been on the receiving end of Mr Jones. Mr Jones’s activities were widely discussed in the Llanberis area. He wasn’t stopped.
Delyth Prys and her husband and adult children lived just down the road at Rhiwlas. I didn’t ever hear about Mr Jones bothering them after Gwynedd County Council ‘had made a mistake’ with the billing… I do know that at the time, Delyth was on such good terms with Alun Ffred, the AM for Arfon, that he was dropping into her house for coffee. Alun Ffred was a former Gwynedd Councillor. His brother Dafydd Iwan was the Leader of Gwynedd County Council for years. Their father was a Minister who either trained or worked at the Bala-Bangor Theological College with Prof J.E. Daniel…

The Society paid tribute to the Beasley family at a public meeting and in a special stand on the National Eisteddfod maes last week. The stand, aside from a selection of jams, was left empty to symbolise the parlour of the Beasleys’ family home.

Jam-towncalledmalice1.jpg

Each pot was designed to represent milestones for the Welsh language, including S4C and bilingual road signs.

Jam-thatsentertainment1.jpg

Elidyr Beasley, 60, said his mother, who as well as her two children is survived by six grand-children, enjoyed robust health until she was diagnosed with cancer just weeks ago.

Elidyr is better known as Meirion Prys. I have never before seen/heard Elidyr use the name Elidyr Beasley, he is always known as Meirion Prys. Meirion Prys who for years was the Chief Exec of the Welsh Language Board, when Meri Huws was Chair.

His mother, who as well as her political activity worked as a teacher, returned to her childhood home in Henllan Amgoed, Whitland, Carmarthenshire, before her death. Mr Beasley said: “She’s had outstanding health until very recently. “She’d been in Glangwili (Hospital) and once it was diagnosed there was very little that could be done.

It’s what the Top Docs told them and the Beasleys had no idea as to how true it was. Eileen died in 2012, the year that Tony Francis was found hanged and the year that I fled Wales at gunpoint and went underground.

“She was fortunate in coming back to her own home to survive for another week and a half.” Mr Beasley said beyond her political work his mother was devoted to her children. “She was a very caring mother, who did her best for us and tried to get us interested as young children in everything of value.”

That fun parlour game ‘Bugger your neighbour’ perhaps Meirion? I mean Mr Beasley?

Adam Phillips, chairman of Balchder Cymru (Pride of Wales), said Mrs Beasley’s contribution to the Welsh language bears comparison with Rosa Parks’ efforts for the civil rights movement in America when she refused to stand up on a bus for a white passenger.

Did Rosa Parks’s grandchildren tell outstanding overseas university staff that they shouldn’t have been given their jobs because the jobs should be reserved for Welsh people? Because that is what Eileen’s grandson Cynog Prys told the young Polish academic with whom he shared an office. After he had failed his PhD and utilised the help of two English senior academics to rewrite it, both of whom had spent years being insulted by Gang members. The Polish girl who shouldn’t have been employed at Bangor on racial grounds won a prize after her PhD was identified as being among the best 30 PhDs in sociology submitted IN THE WORLD that year.

Until he resubmitted his PhD, Cynog was lucky enough to have a researcher’s salary to live on. His salary was the result of a research idea of mine that had been plagiarised by the Welsh medium Expert who was Cynog’s PhD supervisor, who screwed up so badly that Cynog failed his viva. She was a former Gwynedd social worker who was given a job as a lecturer that she could not do, by a Gang member. One who was facilitating the ring.

He said: “To have bailiffs come into your house and take everything you own because you refuse to pay on a point of principle – imagine the shame of that in those days with people looking down their noses at you.

Some of us became very used to people looking down their noses at us. Including the award winning Polish postdoc and she only shared an office with Cynog for about 12 months. Cynog stopped speaking to her in the end what with her being racially unacceptable.

“It’s people like these activists that make things happen. She and her husband did it peacefully, but suffered for it.”

Although they were ever found hanging dead after a visit from Mr Jones collecting non-existent debts.

Her funeral will be held on Thursday morning at Henllan Amgoed Chapel and the family have asked for donations to go to Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg.

There are close links between Cymdeithas and the Welsh Language Board of which Elidyr Beasley aka Meirion Prys was Chief Exec. Might that be why Meirion called himself Mr Elidyr Beasley for the purposes of that newspaper interview, to avoid accusations that the family had asked for donations to go to themselves?

 

Eileen’s grandson Cynog who doesn’t like Polaks – or indeed other races – working at Bangor University, provided an obituary for Gangster Granny which was published in The Guardian’s ‘Other Lives’ section:

My grandmother, Eileen Beasley, who has died aged 91, was a pioneering campaigner for the Welsh language. Along with my grandfather, Trefor, she will be best remembered for their campaign of civil disobedience during the 1950s, to obtain a bilingual rates demand notice from their local council. Their action is credited with kick-starting the Welsh language movement.

Born and raised in rural Carmarthenshire, south-west Wales, she was educated at University College Cardiff (now Cardiff University) during the second world war, before finding work as a schoolteacher. My grandfather was a coalminer and union activist. They married in 1951.

When they received their first rates demand in their new home in Llangennech, Carmarthenshire, in 1952 from the Llanelli rural district council, they decided not to pay until they received a bilingual version. This was during the time when English was the sole language of the state in Wales – even in their area, where 90% of the population spoke Welsh.

My grandparents were summoned to court 16 times during their eight-year struggle. The bailiffs visited their house on several occasions. The piano was the first of their possessions to be taken, followed by their wedding gifts from family and friends. By the end of their campaign the carpet on the floor had been raised, rolled up and carried out of the front door. For years, the couple and their two young children, Elidyr and Delyth, lived with only a table, four chairs and their beds.

As a part of their campaign, my grandmother was elected to the county council in 1958, the only female councillor, and a rare example of a woman in public office at that time.

Cynog, it wasn’t rare for middle class women to be Councillors at the time, it was exactly what they did. If women were really posh, they sometimes even became MPs. Such as Nancy Astor, the mother-in-law of the daughter of the High Court Judge who provided your grandfather with free legal advice. Have you not heard of Megan Lloyd-George? There were other examples, but those two are virtually related to you…

There wasn’t even a women’s toilet in the building.

There may well not have been. In that era, there was often one bog for everyone. I spent years of my youth in a village hall or some such building where there was ‘the toilet’. One for everybody, only one person went in at a time so it didn’t matter that it wasn’t a ladies or a gents. It was just a bog.

My grandparents worked tirelessly to use the media to amass backing for their campaign, receiving letters of support from around Wales, the UK, Europe and America. In 1960 the district council produced its first bilingual rates demand notice.

Their method of non-violent civil disobedience provided both an inspiration and a successful campaign model for language activists in Wales, to the present day. Their contribution to the language movement was honoured in this year’s National Eisteddfod, where an empty stall symbolised their sacrificial commitment to the language.

Trefor died in 1994. Eileen was a loving mother to Elidyr and Delyth, and a wonderful grandmother to her six grandchildren; they all survive her.

Robert Mugabe, Loving Husband to Grace…

Trefor died in 1994, the year of Massive Trauma for the Gang with people going to prison for the sexual abuse of kids in care in north Wales and other people turning up dead and WW III breaking out at Bangor University. The principal target being Graham Day. Guess who assisted Cynog with the rewrite of his PhD? Yes, it was Graham. Graham who for years had been on the receiving end of verbal abuse and slander from Dr Delyth Morris, the former social worker who had been Cynog’s supervisor and provided such poor supervision that he had to rewrite…

I saw Cynog’s Tribute to his grandmother in ‘The Guardian’ when I was in hiding and I dropped him an e mail offering my condolences, having been introduced to his grandmother and, in her presence, thanked by Cynog’s mother and father – Cynog’s father is a social worker – for helping Cynog with the rewrite of his PhD. I received a one line e mail from Cynog in response to mine saying ‘We are all very proud of her’. I don’t think Cynog even began with a ‘Dear Sally’ or finished off with a ‘Diolch, Cynog’. I saw Cynog in a café some two years later, he was sitting on the table next to me. He ignored me. I didn’t think that it was worth me trying to say hello.

Delyth’s other two sons also have full-time, permanent well-paid jobs in Bangor University, one of them in the Language Technologies Unit of which Delyth is Head. I wonder if extra mentoring from Englishers and help from Merfyn was needed to bag them their jobs as well, or did they manage it entirely on their natural brilliance inherited via the Pure Carmarthenshire DNA after hundreds of years of in-breeding?

BBC star Huw Edwards came from the same village as the Rosa Parks of Wales and Huw’s dad, Prof Hywel Teifi Edwards, was an academic who was an enthusiastic supporter of Plaid and a Llangennach Councillor. Prof H.T. Edwards campaigned hard for Plaid candidates, including those who stood in the Flintshire and Denbighshire region. See previous posts…

 

Pedr Paedophilia’s traumas at the hands of Violent Welsh Language Activists were a fantasy, Pedr was mates with some of those Violent Activists, they had the ring in common…

It was Pedr Paedophilia who in February 1971, announced the plans to replace the existing 181 local councils in Wales with 7 new County Councils and 36 District Councils. An extra County Council was added later, for Cardiff.

Pedr Paedophilia served as Chairman of the Conservative Party, 1970-72, when Heath was PM and Edward du Cann was a very powerful figure in the Tories. Pedr left the front bench when Thatch became Party Leader in February 1975. Pedr became active on backbench committees. Du Cann was for years the Chairman of the 1922 Committee, representing Tory backbenches.

Pedr Paedophilia was also President of the Conservative Friends of Israel which is explicable in terms of Pedr representing Golders Green.

Pedr Paedophilia retired from the Commons at the 1987 General Election and was given a life peerage in the same year, thus became Baron Thomas of Gwydir.

1987 – Cunning Plan – Ref – Stephen Bagnall – ‘Hey, Hey, DAJ How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’ Ollie’s sentence cut by LCJ Geoffrey Lane on appeal in May 1987. See ‘Oliver!’.

John Marshall succeeded Pedr Paedophilia as the Tory MP for Hendon South. John Leslie Marshall (born 19 August 1940) was educated at Harris Academy in Dundee, Glasgow Academy and the St Andrew’s University, a favourite institution for the education of aspiring Top Docs from posher families (Bluglass trained at St Andrews). Marshall then became a university lecturer.  In 1964 and 1966 he contested Dundee East, but was beaten by the Labour incumbent George Thomson, the first time as a Liberal National, and the second time in Conservative colours. Marshall fought Lewisham East in the Feb 1974, coming second to Labour’s Roland Moyle.

Marshall served as a Councillor in Aberdeen, 1968-70 and then in Ealing, 1971-86. He was MEP for London North, 1979-89.

Marshall was later selected for Hendon South and was elected as the MP for that seat at the 1987 General Election. He served as PPS to Tony Newton, when Newton was Leader of the Commons. NEWTON _ COVERED UP RE NORTH WALES – ALISON WROTE TO HIM

Boundary changes led to Marshall standing for a new constituency; he won the selection contest on 1 November 1995, but went on to lose the seat unexpectedly to the Labour Party candidate Rudi Vis at the 1997 General Election, where the Conservatives experienced their worst electoral defeat in 91 years.

In May 1998 Marshall was elected to Barnet London Borough Council for a ward in his old constituency and following the Conservative victory in local elections in 2002, he has served in the Cabinet.

Among other roles, Marshall served as Cabinet Member for Investment in Learning, responsible for implementing the Primary Schools rebuilding programme (known as PSCIP), and the Libraries Strategy, which modernised library provision across the Borough. He was an unsuccessful candidate for the leadership of the Conservative group in 2005.

John Marshall was Mayor of the London Borough of Barnet, 2008-09.

 

North Wales High Society socialite Lord Baz Jones didn’t hold back with his tribute to Pedr Paedophilia in an interview that Lord Baz gave to the Daily Post in 2016. Lord Baz aka Barry Jones went to school in Flintshire, trained as a teacher in Bangor and subsequently became the President of Flint County NUT. Lord Baz served as the Labour MP for East Flintshire, 1970-83 and then for Alyn and Deeside, 1983-92. Lord Baz served as a junior Minister in the Welsh Office, 1974-79 as well as Shadow Secretary of State for Wales under the Windbag. In 1999, months before the Waterhouse Report was published, Lord Baz joined Brenda’s Privy.

Pedr nearly equalled Dafydd in being all things to all men. Pedr the boy from the village school in Llanwrst! Pedr the Eistedfoddwr! Pedr of Jesus College, Oxford! Pedr of Conway and then Hendon! Pedr the Posh Tory Grandiosity in the Lords! Pedr who used every position that he held and every member of his network to ensure that a gang of old sex offenders remained in business.

 

According to the Waterhouse Report, new staffing arrangements were implemented at Tanllwyfan in 1974 and Welsh Office Social Work Inspector Smith noted that the other previous recommendations had been dealt with by the time that he visited Tanllwyfan on 24 September 1974. However, there had been considerable problems between the Shepherds and the rest of the staff, including a `walk-out’ because of Shepherd’s “autocratic and rigid regime”, as described by the staff. According to Inspector Smith, the `walk-out’ did not appear to have damaged the children, domestic order was satisfactory and that the home provided a reasonable degree of comfort.

Smith made a further visit on 19 November 1975 to follow up matters raised on his previous visit. Smith noted that the staffing structure left little room for manoeuvre in case of sickness etc and he regarded the day rooms as “bare and cheerless”. But, otherwise, Smith was ‘favourably impressed’ by the home and he noted that staff/children relationships were ‘very good’. He felt that the home was providing good care and operating effectively. Smith was informed by the General Secretary of the Boys and Girls Welfare Society that new furnishings for the day rooms had been ordered and were delivered shortly after his visit.

The Secretary of State for Wales when Inspector Smith wrote that glowing report re Tanwllyfan was John Morris.

The Lord Morris of Aberavon
Lord Morris.jpg
Attorney General for England and Wales
Attorney General for Northern Ireland
In office
2 May 1997 – 29 July 1999
Prime Minister Tony Blair

PLEASE NOTE: Miranda appointed John Morris as Attorney General for most of the duration of the Waterhouse Inquiry, as the corpses of former kids in care and Empowered Service Users constantly turned up in north Wales and elsewhere.

While such huge improvements were being noted by Welsh Office Social Services Inspectors, the Waterhouse Report documented that a ‘major concern about this period is that we are aware that six former boy residents have complained since that they suffered sexual abuse by Kenneth Andrew Scott at Tanllwyfan. Kenneth Scott was a care assistant at Tanllwyfan, 1974-76 and received promotion when he worked there. Scott was still a very young man whilst he worked at Tanllwyfan. Scott had left school at 16 years to work for the National Coal Board for two years and had then become an Assistant Warden for the YHA (Youth Hostels Association) for a similar period. This was followed by two years as a barman and about one year as a care assistant for Wandsworth Borough Council before Scott’s appointment to Tanllwyfan.

Wandsworth -1972-73 – here -Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate John Tilley – See post ‘Lord Snooty the Third’.

Scott had no formal training but did attend a one year course at Bangor Technical College, gaining an In-Service Certificate of Attendance from the CCETSW, whilst he was at Tanllwyfan and he says that he “did day release some week-ends”.

Bangor Tech!!

Kenneth Scott appeared before the Crown Court at Leicester on 28 February 1986 when he was sentenced to a total of eight years’ imprisonment, having pleaded guilty to two offences of buggery and three offences of gross indecency. The victims of these offences were three boys, aged between 14 and 16 years, and the offences had been committed between 1982 and 1985 at the children’s home in Leicestershire of which Scott had been Officer In Charge from 1 May 1978 until his arrest on 29 July 1985, at his own home and on holiday. His predecessor at the home, but only for a short period of less than three months as Acting Officer In Charge, was Frank Beck.

Scott -worked in Leicester for seven years – Frank Beck – Greville – Earp and Leicestershire ring – Scott was part of it – Scott arrested in July 1985 – CHECK DATES – WHEN WAS BROWN OFFERED PHD PLACE IN Leicester?  Brown began his PhD at Leicester University in Sept 1985 after St Stuart Hall, Guy Cumberbatch, Eric Hobsbawm et al conspired to keep Brown out of the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies at Birmingham University and ensured that he ended up on Greville’s manor with no support but much hostility. See eg. ‘Life In Cold Blood’.

I was referred to Dr James Earp, a senior forensic psychiatrist based in Leicester in 1987 for the purposes of Earp writing a Court Report re me after I was charged with a non-offence at Bangor Police Station after the Cunning Plan to frame and imprison me fell apart. Earp was a Top Doc who was concealing the ring in Leicestershire; Earp knew Dafydd et al in north Wales, from Gwynne’s heyday. Earp subsequently concealed the Gang’s wrongdoing in 1987/88. See ‘An Expert From England…’

1987 – David Kirke and the celebs began arriving in Bridgy and the Cottage Inn

1987 – Prof Mark Williams discovered the Miracle of Mindfulness when he was working at UCNW with the Gang

In the early 1990s, by which time Earp was the Director of Forensic Services for the whole of the Trent Region, Earp was at the centre of a scandal re James Rudman, a murderer who had escaped from Earp’s secure unit. The scandal seems to have been far worse than was reported in the media, there being a possible conspiracy between a number of bent lawyers, Top Docs and the judge to ensure that the murderer was sent to Earp’s unit rather than prison, before the murderer then received inside help from Earp’s team to ‘escape’. See post ‘Gwlad y Menig Gwynion’.

In Oct/Nov 1981, George Carman was persuaded by an unknown person for an unknown reason to change his plans re accepting a job as a Judge in the Far East in favour of remaining in the UK working as a barrister. It was in the following years that Carman became very famous, very rich and the barrister of choice re libel for VIPs. Carman was staying in Leicester at the time of his sudden change of mind, representing Dr Leonard Arthur the Leicester Top Doc who was presented at Leicester Crown Court and in the media as a Gentle Giant when he was in fact an accessory to the ring in Leicester and was on trial for the attempted to murder of a healthy baby with Down’s syndrome, John Pearson. Arthur was cleared; the baby died as a result of Arthur’s ‘care’ nonetheless, although Arthur was charged with attempted murder rather than murder.

Dafydd and Gwynne’s longstanding accomplice Sir Douglas Black from the nest of vipers at Manchester University provided Expert Evidence in support of Leonard Arthur at the trial.

Here’s a few facts to reassure everyone:

As a junior paediatrician, Leonard Arthur worked in Birmingham, London, Newcastle and Plymouth. He then took jobs as a Senior Registrar in Ibadan, Nigeria and Bristol. In 1965, before Arthur worked in Leicester, he was appointed as a Consultant Paediatrician in Derby. Arthur was Chair of Derbyshire County Council’s Advisory Committee on Children at Risk from Non-Accidental Injury. Arthur was also Chair of the Trent Regional Advisory Sub-Committee in Paediatrics and held roles on other medical committees as well.

Arthur died in Dec 1983, at the age of 57. No doubt his Top Doc colleagues Did Everything That They Could, being Ah wonderful.

By Dec 1983, D.G.E. Wood was getting very angry because Brown and I were so reluctant to take his advice re me seeing the Expert (Gwynne) whom Wood had in mind for me.

 

I was told months ago after blogging about the Leonard Arthur case that Carman was persuaded to stay in the UK because it was known that I had arrived at UCNW and had been targeted by the Gang, but because of the nature of my friends and I, the Gang realised that we might mount a challenge at some point – I didn’t believe this because I knew nothing about the Gang in 1981, but corroborating info had been sent to me…

Nigel Lawson was the MP for Blaby in Leicestershire; before Frank Beck was arrested he had, since 1983, served as a Liberal Councillor for Blaby.

Ollie -jailed Dec 1986 – Wandsworth – St Gs – Ollie under investigation by the time that Scott was jailed – Cynthia Payne too – Dates?? – See ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part ???’ – second raid on Cynthia’s place in 1986?? 87?? didn’t lead to another prison sentence for Madam Cyn – the St George’s consultants used Madam Cyn’s brothel to network with others in the Westminster Paedophile Ring, even if the activities in the brothel itself were among consenting adults – the Top Docs were never mentioned in any media report, although they were caught in the 1978 CHECK police raid – peers, clergymen, lawyers were mentioned but not Top Docs although there were a number of them in the brothel when the police raided  –

After the 1987 raid on Madam Cyn’s place, Madam Cyn became a celeb – on TV chat shows, including that appearance with Rudolph Nureyev – the two films – ‘Wish You Were Here’ and ‘Personal Services’- See previous posts.

Screaming Lord Sutch lived with Madam Cyn (platonically) at Ambleside Avenue for a number of years – Lord Sutch was found hanged on 16 June 1999. ‘Suicide’. David Sutch had been severely depressed but the Top Docs did their best, as discussed in previous posts. David Sutch lived in the catchment area of St George’s/Springfield and was found dead eight months before Ronnie’s Report was published, but just after Ronnie had told People Who Mattered what was in the initial draft.

Lord John Morris was Attorney General.

John Morris was  the Labour MP for Aberavon, 1959-2001. John Morris was a barrister who was educated at Aberystwyth and Cambridge Universities and was a member of Gray’s Inn, so he ticked exactly the same boxes as William Mars-Jones. Lord Elwyn-Jones, an equally faithful member of the Gang was a barrister who was educated at Aber and Cambridge, served as a Labour MP in the same geological period as John Morris and made it as far as Lord Chancellor…

Since 2015, the seat of Aberavon has been held by the husband of the former PM of Denmark.

After leaving Tanllwyfan, Kenneth Scott had remained briefly in the employment of the Boys and Girls Welfare Society as Deputy Warden of Belmont House, Cheadle and had then served as a housemaster at a boarding school for children with special needs in Ipswich.

John Allen lived near Ipswich before he arrived in north Wales in the late 1960s – hopeless drug addict and excessive user of rent boys Lord Bristol’s family seat nearby – Herveys etc See post ‘The Vermin Club’.

Ronnie stated in his Report that he was ‘perturbed to record also that, following [Scott’s] release from prison, he was employed between 1991 and 1993 as Warden at a youth hostel for the YHA. The complaints against Scott in respect of his conduct at Tanllwyfan were not made until the major North Wales Police investigation, 1991-93. The first of two witnesses at the Waterhouse Inquiry who was at Tanllwyfan, Jan 1975-Sept 1976, said that Scott would examine his bare body when he returned from home visits, purportedly to check for any bruises or abrasions. Then, after he had sustained injuries requiring sutures in a go-kart accident and his dressings had to be changed periodically, Scott started to touch his private parts, ‘accidentally’. This progressed to regular masturbation and on one occasion Scott inserted a finger in the boy’s anus. As a result he started wetting the bed and developed a rash, to which Scott applied cream.’

The Welsh Secretary at the time was barrister John Morris, a member of Gray’s Inn, like so many good friends of the Gang:

Woy was Home Secretary:

Roy Jenkins 1977b.jpg

‘The second witness was at Tanllwyfan, October 1972-June 1976 and said that Scott touched him indecently on one occasion only, on the last night of a camping holiday at Morecambe. The witness was required to sleep near Scott in the tent on the last night as a punishment for talking. After he had been asleep for some time he awoke to find that Scott’s hand was on his penis. He froze and kept still. Scott whispered his name twice but he did not reply: Scott was stroking his penis and whispering and he did not know how to handle the situation. He made a waking up gesture, disturbing Scott, who removed his hand. The witness pulled his sleeping bag tighter round him and feigned sleep. On his return to Tanllwyfan he didn’t have the courage to tell Mrs Shepherd what had occurred.

Scott denied the allegations of both these witnesses in his statement to the Inquiry made on 21 January 1997 and in 1993 he had denied to the police the allegations in relation to Tanllwyfan that had been made against him at that time.’

Ronnie: ‘It must be stressed, however, that Scott did not have any criminal record before or during the period when he served at Tanllwyfan. There have been very few other complaints relating to this period from former residents and three of the five of which we know were made against unidentified persons. We accept that Shepherd did impose a strict regime in the early part of the period giving rise to some anxiety in the Welsh Office but that had been ameliorated by 1975, when the third inspection to which we have referred took place.’

Lord Morris.jpg

‘There was one further Welsh Office inspection of Tanllwyfan during the period of Richard Groome’s wardenship, again by Inspector Smith, on 13 April 1978 when there were 14 boys and four girls in residence, in the age range of eight to 15 years. There were 11 care staff in post, including a qualified teacher and eight of them were resident on the premises. Five members of the staff had a professional qualification in working with children, another had an Angels qualification and all the rest had undertaken formal in-service training. There had been, however, a total turnover of staff, save for two, since the previous inspection in 1975. Support was provided by the equivalent of five full time domestic staff, including a gardener. Two members of staff slept in to provide an `on call’ duty system. Five of the children presenting special difficulties and requiring intensive remedial teaching were being taught on the premises whilst the rest were attending one or other of five local schools.

Inspector Smith was impressed by what he saw. In his opinion, the home “demonstrated further advance under the new leadership of Mr Groome and in all aspects of its operation Tanllwyfan was seen to be offering a good quality of care to the residents and a useful service to the local authorities using it” (Clwyd, Gwynedd, Liverpool, Stockport, Sefton and Trafford at that time).’

John Morris was still Secretary of State for Wales in April 1978. The Local Authorities who sent children to Tanllwyfan also exchanged staff at junior and senior levels with the Gang in north Wales.

‘It was claimed that there had been no absconding for 18 months despite the fact that some of the resident children had long histories of truanting and absconding. Behavioural problems also were said to be rare and were dealt with by admonition, being sent early to bed or reduction of pocket money to no less than 50% of entitlement. The home ‘looked well cared for and there were no signs of damage or neglect’.

John Morris must have been reassured.

‘Of the eight known complainants who were at Tanllwyfan in this period five have made allegations against Richard Groome himself. Ronnie – received evidence from two. The first of these was at Tanllwyfan, 7 August 1979-22 May 1981 and, when he was interviewed by the police in 1992, he said expressly that he had no complaints about the way he was treated at Tanllwyfan, although he made serious allegations about what had happened to him at Bersham Hall earlier.

In his statement to the Waterhouse Inquiry dated 22 October 1996, this former resident said that he wished to add the following: “I have never said this before but whilst I was at Tanllwyfan Richard Groom(e) who was a housemaster found out that a boy called “A” had been messing about with the younger boys and because of that he made myself and about seven other boys give “A” a hiding in the gym.”‘

Ronnie: ‘We know no more about the alleged incident than that’.

‘The other witness, X, who was 12 years old when he began an almost four year stay at Tanllwyfan on 8 September 1981, told the police in October 1992 that he had problems with Groome on a couple of occasions. He alleged that he told another boy that Groome’s new leather jacket was PVC, whereupon Groome smacked him on the side of the head with the result that his head hit a door. On another occasion X was taken from the school on the premises by Groome to the latter’s office because he had been blamed for something. When X told Groome that he had not done anything, Groome smacked him on the side of the head and told him to shut up. X added “Mr Groome when he was nice you couldn’t wish for a better person but if he got upset you steered clear of him. The only injury I ever received from him was a slight bump when my head hit the door but I don’t want to make a complaint about anything that went on while I was in Tanllwyfan”.  X said of the general regime at Tanllwyfan “I would like to say is that I don’t think that they were very caring . . . at all and they just let the children run the place. They used to let the kids run riot at times and they never bothered to come around and check you at night or anything”.

This witness lost an eye as the result of an accident at Tanllwyfan. Two other boys were throwing darts at each other late at night as the witness made his way to the lavatory. On hearing one of the others call his name, he looked around and a dart hit his right eye. He was awarded financial compensation for the loss of his eye. He told the Waterhouse Inquiry  that there should be better trained staff running children’s homes and also a way of helping children who come out of care, “as it appears they are just left to look after themselves and many can’t do this”.

Richard Groome’s response to X’s comments was to say that it was not a true description of Tanllwyfan during his period as Warden

See the source image

and that X’s injury occurred after Groome had left and when he was working at Clwyd Hall School, that is, on 9 January 1983. He recalled that he and his wife provided meals, accommodation and transport for X’s family to help them to visit him in hospital because the Groomes were still living in Colwyn Bay.’

Professor Robert Owen lived at Colwyn Bay and decades after he co-ordinated the 1988-89 cover up into the Gang’s criminality after I complained, my medical records were released to me (having been withheld illegally) and documentation showed that Prof Owen was receiving correspondence about me at his home address as well as telephone calls at home about me from D.G.E. Wood, who was no longer my GP and had not been named in my complaint.

There was always a great deal of breaching professional boundaries at Colwyn Bay. The former bent North Wales Chief Constable Philip Myer lived there and throughout his career Myer received visitors for business and professional purposes at home. Many senior Top Docs, lawyers, Council officials etc lived in the area and a great deal of gossip and dealing went on out of working hours and off of work premises. Colwyn Bay Masons were also a considerable problem. Nigel Mannering Berry, the violent, abusing former Denbigh Angel who managed the Gwynfa Unit, was listed as a Director of Colwyn Bay Mason Hall. Berry lives/lived in Colwyn Bay. See ‘Don’t Be Silly, He’s Nice’.

If the Groomes did provide meals, accommodation and transport for X’s family after they were no longer employed at Tanllwyfan, why did they and why didn’t Tanllwyfan do that?

Groome denied ever smacking X and he denied equally firmly setting boys upon A as the other witness alleged.

See the source image

Groome said that there was a policy of encouraging residents to confront a resident whose behaviour was unacceptable but to do so in a non-violent way in the presence of a member of staff or with one nearby. Ronnie stated ‘It is readily understandable that X should be critical of the supervision at Tanllwyfan in view of the injury that he sustained but it occurred after the Groomes’ departure and the information before us indicates that X stayed on there for two years after they left. It may be, therefore, that his criticisms relate more accurately to that final period of Tanllwyfan’s history…’

Throughout the Waterhouse Report, Ronnie dismissed many allegations of serious abuse and criminality on the basis that the records showed that the complainant had not been resident at the home on the date concerned or even that no such member of staff had ever worked in that particular institution. Ronnie did know that this lot were forging documentation yet he simply ignored it. My own records demonstrate the most extraordinary practices, including a discharge summary from a Top doc of whom I had never heard claiming to have discharged me from Denbigh on a date some two weeks after I had left Denbigh… Documentation was forged, amended, rewritten and staff regularly misrepresented themselves, thus it was not a case of people Lying. I was accused of Lying by Jeff Crowther on one occasion when I told him that Keith Fearns had dragged me along a corridor and threatened me. Jeff replied ‘Keith Fearns is not at work today’. I had actually been assaulted by Slob Ingham who had told me that he was Keith Fearns. I hadn’t met either of them before so Slob was able to tell me that and then stand back and wait for me to be ‘caught making false allegations’.

I was told in writing on other occasions that no such person had existed when I tried to trace a social worker who had seen me in Bangor Police Station in Dec 1986 and a clinical psychologist in Denbigh in Jan 1987. Years later when I received my medical records, there was documentation naming both of these people, accompanied by memos ordering people to tell me that they had no knowledge of them…

Monolingual English kids with literacy problems would not have been able to pronounce the name of the home in north Wales which they stayed, let alone spell it. They would very likely not know if they were in Bryn Estyn or Bryn Alyn, they would have just known that they were in Bryn something. They probably won’t have known the full names of the staff, it was just chaos.

There was an inbuilt advantage re the chaos because, in the fine tradition of the old Englisher’s joke, ‘they’re all called Jones’. Dafydd is listed on the Medical Register as David Alun Jones. One of the Toppest Docs re administration of the psychiatric services was a David Jones. A surgeon in Gwynedd was David Jones. A senior manager in Gwynedd Social Services was David Alun Jones. My solicitor was Alwyn Jones, or more properly R. Alwyn Jones, but everyone called him Alwyn. Another Bangor solicitor was Elwyn Jones, he was the son of a solicitor (and Labour MP) called Elwyn Jones. Then there was the barrister and Labour MP who was of the Gang but at a very senior level, er Elwyn Jones, who eventually became Lord Elwyn-Jones. This syndrome caused me interest but a degree of confusion, even by the time that I was searching archive material for this blog. A 14 year old from England would simply not know what was going on.

Ronnie commented that ‘It is likely that there were some defects in the overnight supervision throughout on the basis of the arrangements explained in [Inspector] Smiths’ 1978 report. As for the specific complaints against Groome, they were expressed in restrained terms and ‘it would be surprising if he did not lapse on occasions from his own stated standards when dealing with turbulent children in provocative situations’. We do not consider that the evidence that we have received is of sufficient weight to justify a finding that Richard Groome himself physically abused children at Tanllwyfan or that he encouraged such abuse.’

Image result for young mr grace you're all doing very well images

Richard Groome later went to prison for his assaults on children…

As with the Gang’s ‘records’ on Empowered Service Users, Waterhouse emphasises again and again how ‘difficult’, ‘disturbed’ and ‘turbulent’ the kids were and how those poor staff sometimes were driven to distraction. Some of the kids in care, like some of the Empowered Service Users, could be difficult. But from what I saw over years, most of them weren’t, they really were not marauding axe murderers.

What did strike me, particularly when I first encountered the psychiatric Angels of north Wales, was that although some of them were friendly with good patients skills, an awful lot of them weren’t and there was a contingent who were very crass, crude and thuggish. The really worrying thing was that the worst ones would behave appallingly – including threatening or assaulting patients – in front of the much better ones and they would never be challenged, even by staff more senior than them. I confronted the better staff about this on a number of occasions and said things like ‘You have just SEEN what he/she did, will you please record it?’ On most occasions, I would receive soothing platitudes and be told to ‘Just forget about him/her’. Sometimes staff would look straight at me and deny that they had witnessed anything untoward. On occasions they’d behave aggressively themselves or leave the room.

It was virtually impossible to complain about welfare staff in north Wales, no matter what they did or who witnessed it. I have always presumed that it was because things were so bad that even senior staff were far too frightened to admit to seeing any bad practice. The Gates of Hell would be unleashed in their direction…

F and I took the piss no end out of the ‘Users Forum’ that was established at the Hergest Unit in the early 1990s because we were told by the Users’ Rep that he ‘wasn’t allowed to investigate complaints’. What he was allowed to do was to receive feedback on matters such as the quality of the lunches. F termed it the Losers Forum and told the Angels that the only thing ever discussed was the temperature of the lunches at the Day Centre. Which was quite true. Yet patients were being unlawfully detained, taken to Court on the basis of staff perjury, occasionally assaulted by staff, refused basic support and benefits to which they were legally entitled, it was farcical.

I know that on several occasions, members of the public wrote letters to NHS managers in Gwynedd raising concerns about the mistreatment of Empowered Service Users and at least three letters were sent about Dafydd’s conduct towards me. I was only told that the letters had been received because Alun Davies accused me of inciting them, but when he realised that I knew nothing about them, he refused to reveal the contents. Although they were about Dafydd and what he had done or was doing to me.

Davies received those letters in 1993/94. I still do not know what was in them. There were no copies of them in my medical records, although there was a copy of a letter labelled as being from me although it wasn’t. It was an unsigned letter from someone claiming that Dafydd had entered their room at nights and had been having sex with them.

For God’s sake, how many Welsh Office and NHS lawyers were given my files to look for evidence that I was ‘dangerous’ while this was all happening?

 

Re the Groomes, Ronnie noted in his Report that ‘We should add that such evidence as we have received about Mrs Groome, who became known as the Domestic Bursar, has been positive and favourable.’

See the source image

The Waterhouse Report further explained that ‘One other former resident of Tanllwyfan gave oral evidence before us in support of his complaint that he was struck by a member of the care staff (Z). [Ronnie does not explain why the staff member was anonymised.] This witness (Y) had been in care for ten years when he arrived at Tanllwyfan in August 1980 at the age of 11 years; during his period in care he had been placed in three children’s homes, including three months at Bersham Hall and he had been fostered by the Saints.’

Bersham Hall featured in my post ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’. It was a children’s home in Clwyd in which children were badly abused and it was the recipient of staff who had been transferred from other homes in Clwyd, including Bryn Estyn, where they had abused children. Because the level of violence and multiple sexual assault at Bersham Hall was slightly lower than at Bryn Estyn, Ronnie Waterhouse highlighted children’s positive comments about Bersham Hall. ‘The Saints’ is a reference to Roger Saint and his wife, a wholly unsuitable couple in north Wales who were allowed to foster numerous children and received a healthy income for doing this – including children sent to north Wales by Tower Hamlets Borough Council – in spite of the Saints’ extraordinary conduct and rationale for that conduct. See post ‘Tower Hamlets, Paul Boateng and Tessa Jowell’.

 

‘Y’s stay at Tanllwyfan lasted four years and his general description of it was “not too bad”. Y’s specific complaint is that ‘he was punched in the face by Z with the result that he had a cut lip and bruising near his right eye (he referred only to a sore eye)’, as opposed to a missing eye a la X.

This incident occurred on 16 November 1982, in the week following Groome’s departure and after it happened Y ran down to the latter’s private house, from which he was collected by the Acting Officer In Charge. The background circumstances were that Y, who subsequently threw the dart that injured X, had attacked X and had been fighting with him. Z – the member of care staff – had intervened twice and, according to his own account, he ‘thought that Y was about to strike him: he therefore struck out first to forestall Y and he thought that he had probably cut Y’s lip. X confirmed that Z had struck Y but said that it was definitely Y’s fault’.

So X had been in care since he was a baby, his experience of ‘care’ included Bersham Hall, the Saints and Richard Groome; are we surprised that it didn’t occur to him that a member of care staff should not have ‘struck out’ at Y at all, certainly in such a manner as to have cut his lip? X’s comment that Y was responsible for causing his own injury at the hands of a member of care staff tells us much about day to day life in care in north Wales…

He nailed my ear to the floor but I deserved it…

Third parties clearly didn’t take the view that it was Y’s fault. Z attended a disciplinary hearing at Tanllwyfan on 25 November 1982 before a panel of three, comprised of the Chairman of the Managers, the Acting Officer In Charge and the General Secretary. Z chose to represent himself and gave a full account of the incident. The unanimous decision of the panel was that he had been guilty of gross misconduct meriting dismissal but that he should be paid one month’s salary in lieu of notice rather than summarily dismissed. There was no appeal from that decision and Z’s contract of employment terminated on 31 December 1982.

If a Committee composed substantially of employees of Clwyd Social Services staff at that time believed that Z was guilty of gross misconduct, the incident with Y was very much more serious than this account suggests. Unless of course Z had raised concerns over a serious matter himself and had indeed been forced out over an incident that was accidental or fabricated. It’s the Gang! We cannot be sure…

It is interesting that Z was not named in the Waterhouse Report, that he wasn’t represented by a union rep at his disciplinary hearing (the seriously violent and sex offenders in north Wales were routinely represented by NUPE or NALGO reps and very effectively; some of the worst abusers WERE NUPE or NALGO reps) and that he wasn’t actually dismissed but was paid a month’s salary in lieu of dismissal. Something obviously needed to be concealed without a fuss being made, but whether that was wrongdoing on the part of Z or wrongdoing on the part of someone else, we cannot be sure. It’s the Gang, they never told the truth under any circumstances…

Old Nick was Thatch’s Welsh Secretary, May 1979-June 1987. Old Nick is most famous for being the Cabinet Minister who assisted in the plans for the development of Cardiff Bay, waved the scheme through, stood down as Welsh Secretary and then re-emerged a few short years later as a Director of some of the companies that were then given the contracts to carry out the very lucrative work developing Cardiff Bay. The development was funded by public money, cost billions and Old Nick and his mates made a fortune, it was so obviously a stitch-up between Old Nick and some of his mates. Cardiff Business Club seemed to play a major role and Old Nick himself had many conflicts of interest that didn’t receive the scrutiny that they should. See ‘Corruption Bay Special’.

Decades after Old Nick et al became millionaires from taxpayers money, angry critics point out that Cardiff Bay is lovely for tourists to visit and provides restaurants and wine bars for the politicians and officials who worked in the Welsh Gov’t buildings located there, but the poverty in the valleys just a few miles up the road has barely been touched. Like other much publicised ‘regeneration’ schemes of that era, Cardiff Bay didn’t regenerate anything; it resulted in a nice area of Cardiff for well-heeled people to enjoy and millions in taxpayers money being transferred into the pockets of some already wealthy business people who designed and rubber stamped the ‘regeneration’. That happened amidst much berating of the plebs for their workshy habits and ‘benefits culture’ and of course the annihilation of the coal industry for being ‘uneconomic’.

Of course Old Nick et al got away with it all because they were sitting on the knowledge of what George Thomas and others in the Labour Party were doing, as well as Dafydd and the Gang in north Wales. Old Nick was Welsh Secretary when Mary Wynch was imprisoned and then released and when the brutality towards children in care and Empowered Service Users was so bad that even sympathetic ears in England who heard about the tip of the iceberg wondered whether it could really be that bad. Old Nick was in charge when I was unlawfully detained at Ysbyty Gwynedd and then at Denbigh. I have discussed extensively that when I dared raise concerns about the most serious criminality, I realised that these were people who were not used to being challenged and had done exactly what they had wanted for many years. The Top Docs in London hospitals were appalling, but they did know what they were supposed to be doing and pretended in public to do doing it. They knew the right noises to make re patient care, ethics etc. In north Wales most of them didn’t, there was a very obvious vacuum re mentoring and training.

Old Nick stood down as an MP at the June 1987 General Election, just as the Gang’s Cunning Plan to frame and imprison me was moving into the final stages before it blew up in their faces and another Cunning Plan had to be hastily cobbled together, requiring the assistance of James Earp…

Bryn Golau, the ‘medium secure unit’ at Denbigh in which I and everyone else was unlawfully detained and which was fully equipped with hidden cameras for the Peep Show starring Empowered Service Users as previously described on this blog was hastily built in 1982 with a remarkably low budget – £200k – for such a unit. The excuse was that it would only be in use for a short time. Bryn Golau was in use for another 15 years at least, depending on what lies were told about the date on which it closed down. It was planned, designed and built on Old Nick’s watch, immediately after Mary Wynch got out of Denbigh and began legal action.

In true Gang style, there were two wards at Denbigh called Bryn Golau. The medium secure unit called Bryn Golau had a plaque on its outside wall commemorating its opening by Gwynne the Lobotomist. I was told by an Angel in Bryn Golau that I had never met Gwynne.

Bryn Golau was in a separate building away from the main North Wales Hospital building and was situated such that people entering and leaving Bryn Golau could not be seen from the main hospital. Which was no doubt very useful in those cases of abduction and unlawful imprisonment. I have mentioned before that I and everyone else I knew at Bryn Golau were taken there late at night under cover of darkness, by ambulance not police car, although we’d all been wrongfully arrested. Not only are ambulances less obvious that police cars but they can be disguised as person-friendly and Caring…

Bryn Golau had a heavily guarded back door; although all doors were locked, the back door was much more heavily guarded than the front main entrance. Patients disappeared from Bryn Golau without leaving the main entrance; they could only have been taken out of the back door, although that was allegedly only for bringing the food in and out.

So someone carefully designed Bryn Golau to film patients in the bath, nude etc and to imprison them and indeed despatch them without sight of any external observers at all. From what I can gather, Gwynne had a major say in designing Bryn Golau.

1982. It is not the 19th century in which one expected such Gothic horrors is it?

Meet the Home Secretary in office when Bryn Golau was planned, designed and built:

Willie was Lord President of the Council and therefore the visitor for UCNW, 11 June 1983-10 Jan 1988, which was when D.G.E. Wood and his mates at UCNW began their shenanigans proper in my direction. Eric Sunderland arrived as Principal on Willie’s watch and made that arrangement with Carlo, the UGC and Thatch permitting UCNW to remain open in return for my career being wrecked. Willie must have given the Gang one hell of a short sharp shock because they killed my friend Anne, a PhD student at UCNW, in April 1986. See ‘A Trail Of Blood’.

Willie was one of the players in Thatch’s successful Tory Leadership campaign in 1974; Willie refused to stand as a candidate himself, thus making it easier for Thatch, in fact a shoe-in for Thatch once Keith Joseph backed down as well and Edward du Cann was publicly denounced as a crook by people rather more powerful than my grandfather. Willie will have remembered the rumpus that my grandfather caused re Edward du Cann before bigger people in the security services used the same strategy to get their poodle Thatch where they wanted her…

Airey came to grief in March 1979, just weeks before Thatch’s big day.

The Irish were blamed, although sources who don’t blame the Irish for everything have stated that Airey was killed by rival security services agents, possibly helped by US agents.

Willie lasted longer than Airey, Willie died on 1 July 1999, a few days after David Sutch Committed Suicide.

Old Nick was MP for Pembrokeshire since 1970. Pembrokeshire was on the turf of the longstanding ring in West Wales. In the 1990s revelations re practices re children in care and local authority corruption pointed to longstanding rot in Pembrokeshire as in north Wales. Both regions were similar in that the same small group of influential people had run everything for years  and dominated senior roles, including those on the local Police Authority. Conditions in Pembrokeshire re children in care were described as ‘worse than Victorian’ many years after old Nick had stepped down as the MP. So how did old Nick miss that then? A scandal re Local Authority corruption years after Old Nick had scarpered revealed a Chief Exec paying himself a huge salary and perks, as well as his mates, bribes, sweeteners and conflicts of interest all over the county, including in the direction of the Police Authority. Such a situation could not have arisen over only a few years.

The Welsh Office Social Service Inspectors who ‘didn’t know’ what was happening in the children’s homes were promoted social workers who had known the abusers and those who facilitated the abuse for decades. The fuckwittery and denial re the Social Services/social care system in Wales is discussed in ‘The Reality Is, There Is No Problem’.

No wonder Old Nick found that the Welsh Office’s regeneration schemes and other business programmes worked so well for him, he’d only have to hint at what he knew was going on in Pembrokeshire over so many years and no-one would have risked pissing him off.

See posts ‘The Cradle Of Filth’ and ‘Old Nick Bites The Dust’ for further details of Old Nick’s background and career…

When barrister Ian Murphy acted in a big child abuse trial in Pembrokeshire some years ago, he commented re some of the allegations that ‘children live in a world of fantasy’. This is not entirely true as Ian Murphy knows; kids can make up bizarre fantasies but it isn’t true that they all do all the time. Children can be reliable witnesses. I remembered Ian Murphy; he acted for me in the High Court in Cardiff on two occasions. One of those occasions was in May 1990, in front of Sir Malcom Pill, when Gwynedd Health Authority had unsuccessfully tried to secure a High Court injunction against me preventing me from even writing to them to pursue my complaints.

Ian Murphy prevented that from happening for which I was grateful, but he, Malcolm Pill and Crispin Masterman, the barrister acting for Gwynedd HA, all had copies of the stacks of letters that I had written, that Gwynedd HA claimed constituted ‘harassment’. Those letters contained details of the abuse of patients and serious criminality; I provided names, dates, venues, the lot. No reference was made to the crimes against me or other patients, even by Murphy. Indeed, at one point, Crispin Masterman read out passages from one of my letters that described how Dafydd had tried to set a Rottweiler on me; I knew how to defend against a dangerous dog, but the police didn’t. Dafydd’s Rottie (well Doberman to be precise) attacked the police and they locked themselves in their car until Dafydd and his ‘housekeeper’ (a patient with whom he was cohabiting) physically retrieved the dog. Crispin read the letter out as evidence of how poor Dafydd needed police assistance…

Malcolm Pill grew up in Cardiff, went to Trinity College, Cambridge and was a member of Gray’s Inn…

See eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

After that case in front of Pill, Ian Murphy, told me frankly that what had happened to me constituted abduction and unlawful imprisonment and he offered to take a case for me against Dafydd. I said yes but somehow it never happened. Ian Murphy knew them all in north Wales; Alwyn’s junior partner in his practice Meleri Tudur told me that ‘Ian Murphy is completely ruthless’ and ‘he wants to be a judge’, after Ian offered to take a case for me…

My documents show that Andrew Park the crooked lawyer at the Welsh Office was ringing Alun Davies to brief him on everything as soon as the hearing finished.

Ian Murphy practiced in Chambers in Swansea, as did Crispin Masterman, who acted for Gwynedd Health Authority. A deal was obviously made, which involved Ian telling me that he would help me sue them and go for their jugular but ensured that he would in the end not do anything. Meanwhile everyone would be warned, including the biggest wigs in London and reinforcements could be brought in from all directions.

Ian and Crispin both became judges; it was the ‘gentleman’ Crispin rather than the ruthless Ian who achieved Greatness in Judging, which suggests that there were many lies and deals done when Ruthless Ian and Considerate Crispin were pitched against each other re my case in May 1990. Ian Murphy and Crispin presided over the big child abuse cases 20 years later when everyone was Shocked and Disgusted and wanted to help – after the Waterhouse Inquiry. Crispin built a reputation as a specialist in child abuse and sex offences… See previous posts…

The Pembrokeshire ‘Satanic Abuse’ ring was all blamed on parents not professionals, yet Ian Murphy knew that none of the ‘professionals’ or officials could be believed.

As with the absence of documents re my April 1991 case that was held at the Royal Courts of Justice, I appeared in the High Court in Cardiff on another occasion following the May 1990 case in front of Pill, but there is not a mention of it in my documentation. Gwynedd Health Authority had tried to have me imprisoned and called Jeff Crowther as a witness. Ian Murphy defended me; I cannot remember who the presiding judge was, or Gwynedd HA’s barrister, but I can remember it being suggested that Jeff might be having a questionable relationship with me and the judge making a very Justice Cocklecarrot-like joke about it, the barristers laughing obsequiously and GHA’s barrister getting Jeff to emphasise that his relationship with me was entirely above board…

After I began this blog, I received info that the Gang had tried to obtain a Court Order condemning me to a secure hospital at Brenda’s pleasure with possible added lobotomy. There was one occasion after a Court case in which I arrived at Ysbyty Gwynedd to once more ask for answers, only to be greeted by Ella repeating ‘What are you doing here? Didn’t the judge say anything to you?’ and a male Angel saying to Ella ‘They didn’t get it’. It was obvious that Gwynedd HA had tried something that had backfired because Ella commented to the Angel that Jeff would find that funny. When I blogged about this the other day I thought that it must have happened in the late 80s, but I’m fairly sure now that the conversation with Ella and the unidentified male Angel was after the Court case in Cardiff with Cocklecarrot joking about Jeff. There wasn’t any other High Court cases after which I returned to Ysbyty Gwynedd the very next day and asked when they were going to investigate my complaint.

The Gang were at fever pitch at the time because Greville Janner had been interviewed and Frank Beck had been arrested and charged in April 1990; the Gang and the Leicestershire ring were linked. It would explain why no documents re the Cardiff case with Cocklecarrot are in my files, they might lead to some very worrying practices on the part of those who were the biggest legal wigs of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. That Cardiff case was held at some point between June and Oct 1990.

Malcolm Pill was at Whitchurch Grammar School with Rhodri Morgan. When I appeared in front of Pill, Rhodri was the Labour MP for Cardiff West – the former constituency of the child molester George Thomas – and Shadow Environment Spokesman, as well as Opposition Front Bench Spokesman on Energy. Miranda was part of the Opposition Energy team as well. The Miranda who, before becoming the Labour MP for a constituency that was on the patch of the ring in the North East of England which was linked to Dafydd’s gang, had been a barrister and a pupil of George Carman QC. George Carman was a bent barrister who was colluding with Dafydd’s gang and the wider Westminster Paedophile Ring; when Greville Janner was hauled in for questioning by the police in 1990, Janner’s solicitor Sir David Napley was so sure that Janner would be charged that he had Carman at the ready. Napley and Carman had been the Winning Team for Mr Thrope at the Old Bailey in 1979.

George Thomas was given a seat in the Lords just as Miranda entered the Commons in 1983. D.G.E. Wood began banging on about me seeing ‘an expert’ weeks later…

Miranda and Cherie: can you help me track down the Man Who Knew, the Angel who told Ella ‘They didn’t get it?’ He arrived to work at Ysbyty Gwynedd as a psych Angel with Ella in the late 1980s and he left soon after that case with Justice Cocklecarrot. He was in his late 20s or 30s, English, dark hair and beard, wore jeans and casual Down With The Kids clothes and sported glasses with purple frames. It was me you have to thank for becoming PM Miranda, so the least that you can do is use your many resources to let me know who that Angel was. Or of course send me the documentation re the case that was heard by Justice Cocklecarrot and the application to send me to live with Mr Savile that was unsuccessful.

Cough Miranda!

Old Nick was the MP for Pembrokeshire during Heath’s time as PM; he was adopted by the Pembrokeshire Conservative Party as the candidate for Pembroke in 1968, so the Grocer had something to do with old Nick’s political career and that custom built prison at Denbigh for the abducted targets of a VIP sex abuse Gang.

Desmond Donnelly preceded Old Nick as the constituency MP and Gwilym Lloyd George was the constituency MP before him. Gwilym was known to be a corrupt lawyer and influenced cases, as Waterhouse’s autobiography makes clear…

 

Ronnie concluded in his Report that ‘The overall picture that we have received of Tanllwyfan is rather less favourable than that given by the Inspector in 1978 but it does appear that the Boys and Girls Welfare Society did achieve some success between 1974 and 1984 in caring for an appreciable number of quite disturbed children over long periods’. Ronnie admitted that the presence of Kenneth Scott on the staff ‘is a cause for grave concern but the Society did not have any information about him at the time to put them on their guard and no complaint was made about his activities whilst he was at Tanllwyfan’.

See the source image

‘Other complaints against other identified members of the staff have been comparatively few and we accept that, in general, corporal punishment was effectively prohibited. On the few occasions when physical force was used ‘it was usually in very provocative circumstances and the degree of force was moderate.’

Just a bit of lashing out now and then, resulting in kids sustaining injuries…

Ronnie noted that there ‘have been a very small number of allegations of sexual abuse against individuals (apart from those against Scott)’ but the Inquiry didn’t receive any complaints about them. When Ronnie wrote his Report, Richard Groome was awaiting trial for a number of alleged sexual offences against boys, one of whom was resident at Tanllwyfan at the time.’

Not too dire then Ronnie! Just a ‘very small’ number of allegations of sexual abuse against an unknown quantity of care staff – apart from the staff who found themselves in Court on serious charges of sexual assault that is – but the Inquiry did not receive any complaints about them. Ronnie’s Inquiry that was very carefully not given that much publicity before it opened, even in north Wales.

Ronnie’s Inquiry was such a well-kept secret that I sat in the Hergest Unit with former kids in care and other witnesses throughout the Inquiry and we barely knew that it was taking place. The first time that we became fully aware of it was when Ronnie’s Report had been published in Feb 2000 and that evening Lucille appeared on TV and snapped at the journo that she wasn’t resigning, she was ‘retiring’. I was watching with F and said ‘Look, it’s Dafydd’s mistress, she’s been blamed for that investigation into the abuse of the kids in children’s homes…’

Ronnie’s Inquiry was hardly discussed in north Wales. There was media coverage during 1997 that highlighted the accusation that the former kids in care were constantly denounced as liars and criminals, but everything then went very quiet until Feb 2000 when Lucille’s mug appeared on TV. Furthermore, what little media coverage there was in north Wales placed much emphasis on kids in care in CLWYD, particularly Bryn Estyn, ‘which was all in the past, it closed down years ago…’

It didn’t even really hit me that the Waterhouse Inquiry was very much about Lucille and Ty’r Felin, the children’s home in Bangor, until the Report was published. Ty Newydd, the Bangor children’s home in which F’s first wife had worked in the early 1980s when she and F found out that the boys were being made to labour for no pay and were being ‘beaten up’ by the social workers, closed in 1984 (another closure in 1984 after Brown and I made a fuss about Gwyyne) and the local media in north Wales really did present the Inquiry as being about Ancient History In Clwyd. There was no publicity given to how many kids had been found dead over the many years and even the Brighton firebomb that killed five witnesses (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’) was barely mentioned. As the Gang dominated the media in north Wales, that was unsurprising.

See the source image

The Gang dominated the media on a UK wide basis as well. This is Ronnie’s best mate from the days when as young graduates they shared a flat:

See the source image

Then there was Huw Wheldon, Mr BBC Arts before Botney; Huw went to Friar’s School, was a governor of UCNW (as well as the LSE) and was on excellent terms with the Gang. BBC Wales, ITV Wales and S4C were entirely the domain of the Gang. ‘Panorama’ employed Margaret Jay – Jim Callaghan’s daughter and the wife of Dr Death’s best mate Peter Jay – and one of Dafydd’s friends from Llangollen, Elwyn Parry was for years Deputy Editor of ‘Panorama’ and responsible for ‘Rough Justice’ and other exposes of injustice… Ann Clwyd grew up near Denbigh and stood as a Labour candidate for Denbigh in the 1970s – after receiving backing because the Labour Party needed More Women MPs! – and married a man from Newborough, who’s dad was a Headmaster. Ann’s husband became a TV exec. As did Lord Wyn Roberts after he left university but before he became an MP.

No-one in the media would touch anyone who had evidence of serious wrongdoing. The Losers Forum got themselves on TV in mid-1990s, but not to discuss any serious wrongdoing. I was also interested to see that when the Users’ Rep was granted a ‘sympathetic’ interview on Wales TV news, throughout the interview, there was a caption underneath reading ‘psychiatric patient’. Now F or I could probably have coped with someone doing that to us, because we would have taken the piss, but the man who appeared on TV boldly labelled ‘psychiatric patient’ was not one for Nutters Lib and had repeatedly tried to kill himself after having a breakdown, losing his job and being told by too many people that he was just a nutter. When the tame Users Rep was described as a ‘psychiatric patient’ by prime time TV, the same news programme constantly entertained the idiocies of Dafydd and how patients would die en masse should his Substance Abuse Service not continue to receive huge quantities of public money.

Anyone for stigma? Nutters are not stigmatised by the man/woman in the street, they are stigmatised by Top Docs and their mouthpieces because what is happening to patients is so grim.

It is difficult to explain just how little coverage there was of Ronnie’s Inquiry until it was over; there certainly was no great effort to publicise it before it began among the cohorts of people who were witnesses, indeed there were explicit restrictions on how the Inquiry should be ‘advertised’ in north Wales in the months before it opened. As if that wasn’t farcical enough, the children’s homes in north Wales had filled up with kids from right across the UK who were then trafficked back to English cities; most of the ones who were still alive would have had no idea that the Inquiry was taking place.

After Lucille appeared on TV insulting the journo, I constantly told Hergest Unit staff ‘Dafydd must have been involved, he must have been, she’s his mistress and she’s been accused of knowing about a paedophile ring targeting boys who ended up in Risley…’ I was repeatedly told ‘It is nothing to do with Dafydd, it was all about the children’s homes, years ago, Dafydd was nothing to do with any of it’. When I was working at Bangor University in approx. 2008, I told Ella Fisk, the Angel who ran the Day Centre in the Hergest Unit for years that Dafydd WILL have had something to do with the scandal of the children’s homes. Ella responded with: ‘No, he was definitely nothing to do with it. Dafydd has never been a child psychiatrist’.

Ella, Dafydd RAN THE RING and before he died, so did Gwynne. They gave the orders to the people who did interact with the kids face to face – Dafydd was mates with Dr Barry Kiehn, who oversaw the rapes, buggery and battering at the Gwynfa Unit – and Dafydd, Gwynne et al in their capacity working in adult psychiatry, trashed the parents of those kids, removed the kids from the care of their own families and handed them over to the Gang. If the kids told anyone what happened, as soon as they hit 18 years old, they were referred to Dafydd as Disturbed, Dangerous and Psychotic!

They were in Denbigh with me and some of them were in Hergest, YOUR PATIENTS ELLA!!! Mandy C who repeatedly tried to kill herself, she had grown up in care, was fostered by Brian and Blodwyn, two Gwynedd social workers who dropped her like a hot cake when she was a young adult and then Tony Francis refused to treat her, ordered everyone else not to treat her and arranged for her to ‘start a new life’ in the south of England -DURING THE WATERHOUSE INQUIRY – where she knew no-one. Within weeks of being ‘transferred’, Mandy jumped off a bridge and broke her back. She is probably dead by now. Stephen Bagnall from Wrexham: died in Denbigh, almost certainly killed by the staff sometime in 1987 (see post ‘Hey, Hey, DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’). Stanley Wynn from Maesgeirchan, who was in Denbigh with me…

Then there were the former kids in care from other parts of the UK who were sent to north Wales and ended up as psych patients there: Louise from Robert Bluglass’s clinic in Birmingham, who jumped off the multi-storey car park and was left crippled; Foxy who was found dead in 2000, ‘choked to death’ in a ‘nursing home’, where he was supposed to have been checked every 20 mins, that’s why his body lay undiscovered for an hour; then those young people who were found dead in the homeless hostel in Bangor…

See the source image

There will have been many more whom I did not personally know because the former kids in care were usually ‘Dafydd’s drug addicts’ and I didn’t know the drugs patients…

Jeff Crowther, Ella’s friend and colleague ended up working in the Anglesey drugs team, the domain of Dafydd; Jeff transferred to that team in the mid-90s just before the Waterhouse Inquiry and was then appointed as F’s keyworker, although Jeff was a personal friend of the predators who had fleeced F of his property and money and made fallacious allegations in order to deny him all contact with his baby within three weeks of the baby’s birth. Jeff was friends with other ‘professionals’ involved in that conspiracy, including Dr Heinersdorff of Bethesda…

F also knew some of the former kids in care from Risley, as well as the boys at Ty Newydd…

I lodged with a former kid in care in 1982, Frank Jones in Port Dinorwic. Frank’s house spontaneously combusted twice, his dog was shot, he was obsessed with porn (see previous posts) and I was told just a few weeks ago that Frank had died. He emigrated to mainland Europe years ago to get away from the constant aggro but returned to the UK at a later date. Frank was in Scotland when he died a few months ago. He was about 60, which is a ripe old age for those who grew up in care in north Wales.

 

Ronnie continued re Tanllwyfan: ‘It is, of course, much more difficult to assess the quality of care provided by this home more generally and we have not received a sufficiently wide range of evidence about it to reach any confident conclusion. Such pointers as we have do, however, suggest that the quality of care at Tanllwyfan compared favourably with that provided by Local Authority community homes of similar size and purpose in North Wales.’

They were even worse…

It should be remembered that Tanllwyfan did not house Disturbed and Delinquent Young Criminals. The kids at Tanllwyfan were as young as six, seven, eight, nine and ten years old… They were losing eyes, getting smacked about and injured and were the subject of sexual assault from Scott, Groome and the other unidentified staff whom Ronnie didn’t even consider a problem.

The Waterhouse Report discussed Cherry Hill, a home located in Borras Park Road, Wrexham. I’ll reproduce some of Ronnie’s comments about Cherry Hill here, because it was yet another home through which staff passed who had been previously identified as abusive, but everyone was very relaxed about the matter. Cherry Hill was discussed briefly in a previous post, in the context of one particularly abusive member of staff who was circulated around north Wales children’s homes, leaving a wake of injured kids behind him.

Cherry Hill was opened by Denbighshire County Council on 1 January 1971 as a community home. It came under the aegis of Clwyd County Council from 1 April 1974. After 1979, Cherry Hill accepted kids as young as eight years old. Residents in Cherry Hill attended local schools (although the home was able to accommodate children with learning difficulties) and were encouraged to ‘play a part in the local community’. At the time of the Waterhouse Report, Cherry Hill ‘remains open and it is now managed by the Looked After Children Team Manager of Wrexham County Borough Council, which took over responsibility for the home on 1 April 1996. It is now described as a six bedded unit for young people between the ages of 14 and 17 years, most of whom present different forms of challenges’.

One Wrexham County Borough Councillor became the Labour AM for Wrexham and then the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister, during which time she failed to even acknowledge e mails from me detailing how I was being wrongly arrested, threatened, unlawfully refused all NHS treatment etc. Before she became an AM, Lesley Griffiths was a medical secretary in Wrexham Maelor Hospital. That was the hospital to which kids in care were taken with serious injuries or STDs only for Docs to maintain that there was no problem. Griffith’s work at Wrexham Maelor was concerned with patients with STDs.

Some time after I was ignored by Lesley Griffiths, I was unlawfully sectioned, for months, in Wrexham Maelor Hospital. When Griffiths was Health Minister, there was still a longstanding problem with the deaths of newborn babies but no-one knew why. The midwives were so upset about the number of deaths that they requested an investigation to identify the cause. The senior managers of Wrexham Maelor refused an investigation because they feared bad publicity. Babies continued to die.

Wrexham Maelor surpassed itself when a patient died in the A&E waiting area, after being ignored by staff for hours. The corpse slumped over and the security guard On Duty To Protect Staff From Being Attacked By Dangerous Patients went over to the corpse and sat him upright after giving him a bollocking for slumping. The security guard did not notice that the patient was dead. After another 10 mins or so, another patient told the security guard that the patient seemed to be dead. When the guard ascertained that the patient had indeed died, he gave the waiting room a bollocking for not helping the patient. Not one Doc or Angel had helped the patient and the guard himself had told the corpse off for slumping.

An account of this extraordinary incident appeared in the local papers in north Wales. Not one Councillor, AM or MP questioned what on earth had happened and there was no comment from any of the usual People Who Care eg. the BMA, RCN, UNITE, UNISON. A man died in the A&E waiting area of Lesley Griffith’s former employer and his corpse received a good dressing down from a security guard. Then the other patients did as well. An Everyday Story Of North Wales NHS Folk.

Lesley was Health Minister when a young man from Anglesey was jailed for masterminding a major drugs distribution business. The local paper reported that the judge had received a letter from a Top Doctor explaining that the young man was from a Good Family; the judge took this into account and gave the young man a lighter sentence than expected. The Doctor who Vouched for the Family of the jailbird was Dr P.W. White from Menai Bridge. The defendant was Dr P.W. White’s own son. The judge didn’t mention that.

Dr P.W. White is friends with Dr D.G.E. Wood and I was told by the son of a Top Doc Gang member that a particular GP who for years was a partner in P.W. White’s practice raped a patient. I was told that he was guilty and although the patient complained, he was cleared. I complained to the GMC and the Mental Health Act Commission about the same GP in 1987 but no action was taken. He was a friend of Dafydd. He died not long after I began this blog.

The founding partner of P.W. White’s practice was Dr Gunter Poeppinghaus. His daughter Vanessa has for years been a Top Doc in Ysbyty Gwynedd A&E, where she refuses to treat targets of the Gang, lies on medical records, ignores her colleagues if they mistreat or threaten patients and spearheaded the Get Merfyn Out campaign. Vanessa has benefited from a multiple-organ transplant, for which she went to Kings in London. Vanessa would never risk her own neck or indeed any other part of her anatomy with her criminal colleagues in north Wales.

Gunter knew Gwynne and Gwynne was alive and kicking for the first two years of Vanessa’s career. Vanessa qualified at the Welsh National School of Medicine, Cardiff, in 1984. She began medical school the year that Dafydd and the Gang unlawfully imprisoned Mary Wynch. The year that Vanessa qualified, her dad’s colleagues at the C&A Hospital gave me an unnecessary blood transfusion with infected blood products. And failed to record that I had received a transfusion on any records. I keep being told that far worse things than I know about also happened while I was under general anaesthetic, but as no-one will actually tell me what it was, I am none the wiser.

Not that it matters; if no-one was able to actually respond to hundreds of complaints about these psychopaths from patients, relatives and even members of the public re what they were witnessing happening to patients, what happened to me in the dead of night in the C&A Hospital with five unidentified fully gowned and masked surgeons who performed an unnecessary operation and transfused me with infected blood after I had been lied to and Brown had been lied to, is not going to make any difference to anyone. Corpses get told off by security guards in the north Wales NHS, patients are refused treatment by Vanessa’s colleagues at Ysbyty Gwynedd A&E, are ordered off the premises and are later found dead in the Cathedral Gardens after a snowy night but their body has no snow on it and no questions are asked. Even though the last Angel to see that man alive had threatened me, lied to the police and after a complaint about him by a Top Doctor was admitted by HR to be someone who’s ‘integrity and competence cannot be relied upon’. See ‘Two Very Dishonest, Dangerous Nurses’.

If that wasn’t enough, months after P.W. White’s drug dealing son received a light sentence as a result of his own dad telling the judge that the Whites are a Nice Family,

P.W. White gave an interview to the Daily Post demanding that kids who’s parents allow them to become ‘obese’ should be taken into care. Is P.W. White keen on Exercise and Salads? No. P.W. White is absolutely enormous, so enormous that even his indulged, drunken, high living Top Doc colleagues joke about P.W. being huge.

Ronnie told us that Wrexham County Borough Council ‘placed particular emphasis during 1997 on developing and strengthening its services at Cherry Hill: an outside consultant has been engaged and “a dedicated programme of training for staff” provided.’

In 1997, one Wrexham County Borough Councillor was the brother of Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon. In the late 1970s, Thomas was known to be sexually exploiting either a kid in care or an Empowered Service Users (there is some confusion re the sort of ‘care’ that the teenaged boy was in receipt of) and it was recorded on the boy’s social services file that he was in a homosexual relationship with Thomas. Thomas spent the night with the boy and took porn Polaroid pics of them together. The next day Thomas reported the boy to the police, claiming that the boy had robbed him. Thomas was clear why he had spent the night with the boy. The police recovered the ‘stolen’ property, which included the porn pics. The police destroyed them for being ‘indecent material’. The boy was sent to a detention centre for theft. Thomas was charged with no offence, although the boy was underage and Thomas was years older. Thomas’s dad was Lord Kenyon, President of UCNW from the late 1940s until 1982, JP, member of the North Wales Police Authority, the most senior Freemason in north Wales, Chairman of Clwyd Health Authority and much more… Thomas’s brother who served as a Wrexham Councillor inherited his father’s title when Lord Kenyon died in the spring of 1993. Thomas died at the beginning of 1993, from HIV/AIDS.

In 1970, Thomas appeared in Court in Birmingham after he set fire to a YMCA hostel in Birmingham, in which Thomas was living at the time. Thomas was bailed to the secure ward at the North Wales Hospital instead of prison. Gwynne was still the Top Doc there then, although obviously Dafydd was busy as well. I don’t know whether that was Thomas’s first encounter with Gwynne and Dafydd, or whether he was a regular by then. Thomas was a well-known sewer dweller, but he has been almost written out of history and there is very little info available on his immediate family either, although they are a famous aristocratic line.

F and I were arrested and charged on the basis of the perjury of Jackie Brandt, a Gwynedd social worker in 1993; she made her statement to the police about us some two weeks before they interviewed and arrested us. She made that statement while Thomas was I think dying; we were arrested after he was dead. The first hearing re the case occurred just before Lord Kenyon died. Our trial was set for a few months into the future; Lord Kenyon was safely dead a few weeks after our initial Court appearance.

Aled Roberts, a Wrexham solicitor who grew up in Wrexham was also a Wrexham Cllr and also served as Mayor. Like Lesley, Aled became an AM, but for the Lib Dems. When Aled was an AM he refused to respond to complaints about the psychiatric services, even if a patient’s life was at risk. Aled is now the Welsh Language Commissioner and recently announced a drive to ensure that more staff in the NHS in Wales can speak Welsh to improve patient care. It would help if they stopped killing the patients in any language Aled.

 

Ronnie Waterhouse’s Report stated that ‘We have not received directly any complaints of child abuse at Cherry Hill and it would not have been necessary to devote a separate chapter to it ‘but for events that occurred there in the aftermath of the disclosures of Stephen Norris’s abuse at Cartrefle’.

Cartrefle was a children’s home in north Wales that became one of the more notorious ones because of the serious abuse over years of kids by a member of care staff called Stephen Norris. Stephen Norris served two prison sentences for the most appalling abuse of boys in care in north Wales over years. Norris was so unpleasant that even other staff didn’t like spending time with him and the Clwyd Social Services manager responsible for children’s homes didn’t visit the home in which Norris worked because he loathed Norris.

As is par for the course, there were more than ‘clues’ about Norris, everyone who had anything to do with him and the kids whom he was assaulting knew what was going on. Complaints about physical violence towards the kids at Cartrefle resulted in the ‘Cartrefle Inquiry’, an investigation set up by Clwyd County Council. Those who played key roles in the Cartrefle Inquiry (who failed to notice how serious the abuse of the kids was at Cartrefle) included Irene Train, an Angel who held one of the most senior roles in Public Heath in Clwyd Health Authority and Gareth Jones, the Headmaster of Ysgol John Bright in Llandudno, who eventually served as the Plaid AM for Aberconwy, as well as a Councillor before and after his stint as an AM. Irene Train in retirement was a mover and shaker at the St David’s Hospice, Llandudno and also ran an consultancy that flogged its services to the NHS. The Cartrefle Inquiry, which was carefully rigged by Clwyd County Council and those involved are discussed in previous posts.

Norris only ever removed from his job (and subsequently imprisoned) after one boy in care would not be deterred and complained. Clwyd’s method of dealing with this was to hold meetings at which Feelings Were Shared about Norris, to which Norris’s victims, other boys in care and staff discussed Norris’s sexual assaults. Lest those assaulted weren’t sure of what had happened to them at the hands of Norris, ‘education’ was provided and the meetings discussed oral sex, buggery and bestiality. There was also a discussion as to whether the boy who complained about Stephen Norris was Right Or Wrong. See post ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’.

Waterhouse continued: ‘These events have not been the subject of oral evidence before us, because of their nature, but the documentary evidence has been sufficient to enable us to summarise what occurred…

According to a police report dated 24 July 1990, there were nine boys, in the age range of nine to 16 years, resident at Cartrefle at the time of Norris’ suspension. Of these, two disclosed that they had been sexually abused by Norris and were transferred immediately, on 20 June 1990, one to Cherry Hill… Two other boys, who were brothers, were transferred shortly afterwards to Llwyn Onn, another north Wales children’s home (see previous posts). One of them alleged much later that he had been raped by Norris and the other said for the first time in 1992 that he had witnessed sexual abuse at Cartrefle. The other five Cartrefle residents, one of whom subsequently, in 1996, alleged that he had been sexually abused by Norris, remained at Cartrefle and received the limited “counselling”….’ [That ‘counselling’ was the ‘sharing feelings’ meetings at which the sexual assaults that Norris’s victims had suffered was discussed in front of other kids who expressed their disgust…]

‘The four boys transferred from Cartrefle – two of them were at Cherry Hill in 1992. One of the two brothers arrived there on 8 January 1992 (probably from Llwyn Onn); the other boy had gone to Cherry Hill in 1990 for only five days, then to Tapley Avenue for a month, followed by Pentre Saeson (part of the Bryn Alyn Community) for nearly two years before returning to Cherry Hill in May 1992.

Whilst at Pentre Saeson the other brother had been co-resident with this last mentioned boy from 11 September 1991. A child protection conference on 5 November 1992 recorded that an investigation was taking place into a boy’s admission that he had “done things” with other boys at Cherry Hill; and the minutes of a meeting held at Cherry Hill on 25 March 1993 disclosed the outcome of that investigation. It revealed that three boys (A, B and C) at the Children’s Centre (as it was now known) were actively engaged in sexual activity between each other and that one of the trio (B) was the ex-Cartrefle boy who had returned to Cherry Hill in May 1992. Moreover, another member of the trio (A) had disclosed sexual involvement with a fourth and a fifth boy (D and E), who had both left Cherry Hill. A had also been seen touching a boy’s penis in the public swimming baths and had received a caution for exposing himself to B. D was known to have a history of sexual abuse and had been “linked with a local paedophile ring”.

WHEREVER COULD THAT HAVE BEEN HIDING?

‘C had made allegations of sexual involvement with two males but there was uncertainty about his credibility on the subject.

See the source image

Waterhouse continued to explain that very little progress had been made in dealing with any of the matters concerned by the date of the meeting in March 1993 and ‘the decisions taken then lacked any sense of urgency’. Further information was to be sought; “Longer term aims and goals regarding specific work with the boys would be open for further discussion”; and the staff group were to start to work immediately with Linda Butler, described as “Principal Child Therapist”, who was attached to the Division’s Child and Family Services.

Linda Butler provided on 17 June 1993 a report in which she outlined possible treatment needs for A, B and C and training for the Cherry Hill staff but pointed out that it was important to remember the needs of the other young people involved in the situation. She warned also of the high cost in terms of time and resources of the work that she recommended but emphasised that the costs of not doing it would be “higher in terms of future life for the young people, the level of risk they present to others, the increased difficulty in breaking patterns of behaviour the more established they became and costs to future victims”.

F and I went on trial at Bangor Magistrates Court after Brandt perjured herself, in either July or Aug 1993. I wrote to Michael Mansfield in Oct (or perhaps Sept) 1993…

‘Meanwhile, the Officers In Charge of Cherry Hill and the Deputy Director of Social Services Gledwyn Jones had expressed to the Director of Clwyd Social Services, John Jevons, their grave concern about the procedure that was being adopted to investigate the allegations. They thought that the Department’s Child Protection procedures were not being followed and that insufficient urgency was being shown.’

Nearly all involved were old timers re Clwyd Social Services; Jevons had been Deputy Director of Social Services before he became Director. Gledwyn had cluttered up Social Services in north Wales for years as well.

After the row over the suppression of the Jillings Report in 1996, John Jevons, who had presided over Clwyd Social Services for so long, was appointed as Director of Cardiff Social Services. Julie Morgan was one of the Cardiff Councillors who welcomed him with open arms.

‘On 25 May 1993, [Lord Kenyon died on 16 May 1993] Jevons wrote a memorandum to the Child Protection Co-ordinator, David H. Davies and the Assistant Child Protection Officer, Paul Richards, requesting them to carry out an investigation into the history of the alleged incidents going back to November 1992 and how they were dealt with.’

It was in Nov or Dec 1992 that F’s baby was born; the Gang bribed the predators to make false allegations, kick F out and refuse him access to the baby…

Jevons ‘required advice also as to whether there were grounds for concern about how the matters had been handled, whether other action was necessary to protect children and whether there were lessons for all to be learnt from what had happened’.

Waterhouse observed that ‘The response to Jevons’s memorandum was far from satisfactory. On 18 June 1993 Paul Richards replied, explaining that certain practical matters had been recommended to secure the protection of the children but that finance was required and the cost was being investigated. Richards did not feel that any further investigation by him would provide further useful information: in his view the matter ought to be dealt with within the Division.’

‘Richards had two concerns that, he thought, should be addressed. The first was the perceived lack of communication between teams and of feedback to the home. The second was that the investigation had taken too long. Other comments by him were that a strategy meeting (including the police) should have been held at the very beginning and that it would be prudent for case conferences to be held so that any decisions as to abuse and protection would be the responsibility of an inter-agency group and not just the Social Services Department.

David Davies, who had left the investigations to Paul Richards, followed up ten days later with a memorandum of his own to Jevons, in which he made a number of indecisive comments and posed a number of questions, not all of which were very pertinent to the matters. Examples are: (i) Providing treatment is difficult and the outcome is uncertain. (ii) The emphasis on containment and vigilance, with limited therapy, may place staff in increasingly confrontational roles. (iii) There had been six child protection conferences arising from Cherry Hill children complaining about physical restraint between October 1989 and June 1993. (iv) Is there a case for a policy that allegations against staff should always be independently investigated by another division? (v) I am not clear whether the current enquiry is an assessment of the problems in order to plan therapeutic service or is social services carrying out its duty to investigate under Section 47 of the Children Act 1989?

Jevons’s response to Paul Richards’ memorandum preceded this last memorandum and made no comment on the finance required for therapeutic treatment of the children involved. Jevons said, in his own memorandum of 25 June 1993 to the Divisional Director (South), that he accepted the advice that there was little point in continuing to investigate the matter from the centre. He said also that he had been unable to discuss with Paul Richards the latter’s view as to the wisdom of sharing his report in full with the individuals whom he had interviewed because of Richards’ absence on leave. The Divisional Director (South) was left to address the two concerns identified in Paul Richards’ report, namely, communication between teams and the delay in progressing the investigation after the initial report coupled with the failure to convene case conferences.

The Divisional Director (South), Glynn Ridge, was “bemused” about the communication issues because he thought that there had not been any failures in this area. By 3 August 1993 he understood that case conferences had been convened and that they would ensure that the up-to-date information would be received and that the need for any protection measures or further investigation would be identified.

The Division’s Team Manager for Child Protection, John Roberts, was much less sanguine. In his response to the Divisional Director dated 11 August 1993, Roberts made the following points about communication between teams: “There have been problems of communication in the way this matter was initially handled which subsequently developed into problems of interpretation and unwillingness to reach any consensus view on resolving issues raised. Strategy meetings which have taken place have been plagued by polarised views which, not having been clearly resolved, have been perpetuated outside of the meetings. I have no doubt that practitioners involved in work with the boys concerned have been “caught in the cross fire” and their effectiveness lessened as a result.”

Roberts accepted that case conferences for each child involved should have been held at an early stage and that the reasons why this had not been achieved needed to be closely examined. But he added: “As matters have evolved, I am not unhappy that conferences were delayed on these particular boys for there was/is a real danger that arbitrary decisions may be made in distinguishing between `victim’ and `perpetrator’. Even now, with conflicting statements the matter is still open to professional interpretation and far from being clear cut, with no obvious criteria such as the use of `force’, `coercion’ or `inducements’ we are left with subjective interpretation of the individual’s power of influence over others. Regardless of any conference decision, we are still left with a serious problem in Cherryhill (sic). The sexual activity which has come to light is both totally inappropriate and illegal and all of the boys concerned need extensive input to reduce future risk to themselves and others. The major decision ought to be whether this is done on a group basis within Cherryhill or whether they should be split-up in an attempt to break the pattern and treated as individuals. If they remain at Cherryhill equally attention should be given to functioning and culture of Cherryhill as well as individual work with these boys. If they are split-up, intensive preparation would be required to ensure that similar patterns do not emerge in that placement.”

Absolute chaos then, staff having sex with children for years on end, no-one stopping them and then the kids all having sex with each other. Layers and layers of total fuckwits spending months reciting policy and procedures that they obviously do not understand, using social worker-speak, only to fail to do anything. Not that they could; Clwyd had one hell of a problem and the group sex on the part of the boys whom Norris had been allowed to assault daily for years was the just tip of the huge iceberg.

Stephen Norris was an an utter degenerate. Concerns had been raised about him repeatedly, including by a member of the public who went to the police in 1985, but the police simply told the complainant that they couldn’t act without evidence. Which was what I was told by the police every time that I approached them re the Gang.

I went to see my then MP, Keith Best, in the summer of 1985, re the mental health services. Mary Wynch won her appeal to the Master of the Rolls and received full coverage in the London-based broadsheets in July 1985.

Norris was left by these idiots sending memos to each other for years to molest and bugger boys in his care. When some of Norris’s victims continued the lifestyle to which they had been introduced by Norris, this lot had no idea what to do and were rather more exercised about their communication difficulties than kids who had developed a seriously damaged sexuality at the hands of Norris and were now assaulting other kids.

Oh and there were allegations of a ‘local paedophile ring’ as well but no-one could be certain that such a thing existed, even Ronnie, who was Chairing a Judicial Inquiry after years of public outrage re repeated claims that a big paedophile ring was operating in the north Wales/Cheshire region and had been for years but was being concealed at the highest levels of Gov’t.

That memorandum indicates that much remained to be done in August 1993, nine months after ‘the problem’ had first been recognised. The much bigger problem that was F and I – two people who had repeatedly complained about the abuses and criminality of the Gang – was very rapidly dealt with, a social worker lied her arse off to the police, then in the witness box, admitted that she’d lied, began crying in the witness box while she was on oath and I was found guilty for ‘looking at her’ and causing her alarm and distress…

Re the sexual excess of Norris’s victims, Waterhouse continued: ‘In our judgment Roberts summarised clearly the issues that had to be addressed but we do not have any direct evidence as to how matters progressed thereafter. This history was the subject of critical comment by the Jillings Independent Panel, which carried out its own investigations between March 1994 and December 1995, and we have before us a copy of a memorandum from Brian Stickels, Children’s Services Manager for the South Division dated 5 January 1996, in which he provides responses to some of the Panel’s criticisms.

So one of the other investigations into child abuse in north Wales happened upon this chain of sexual assault as well. Jillings himself refused to be drawn on whether a paedophile ring was in existence in north Wales, which might have been because the ring that was linked to a ring in Derbyshire and John Jillings was the former Director of Social Services in Derbyshire. See ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’

Ronnie observed: ‘It is sufficient for our purposes to quote his response to the second criticism with which he dealt, namely, “Given past experiences of abuses within the children’s residential sector in Clwyd, the Independent Panel feels that the organisational response to this situation was less than satisfactory”. Stickels wrote: “The `abuses’ involved inappropriate sexual activity between male residents at Cherry Hill, no adults were involved or implicated.’

Not even Stephen Norris, who had been employed by Clwyd for years, who inducted the kids into behaving like this and was at that time serving his second prison sentence – check – for gross indecency, buggery etc

Ronnie’s High Court Judge’s Legal Brain continued to consider the evidence: ‘The disclosure of information was piecemeal and over a six to nine month period before the pattern and extent of behaviour began to emerge. From February 1993 it became clear that it was a major group management issue, involving a significant number of previous and existing residents, – ie. molested children – from that point the following action was taken: (i) Multi-Agency Planning Group established, Chaired by the Child and Family Social Work Manager (South Division), which included membership from North Wales Police and Clwyd Health Authority.’

The members of the Multi-Agency Planning Group had refused to stop Norris molesting kids for years, had failed to investigate serious complaints, had obstructed investigations at every opportunity and had also covered up for numerous other people behaving as Norris did. Dafydd and his mates ran Clwyd Health Authority and William Mars-Jones’s sister-in-law, a local busybody in Denbighshire who was married to a high profile Freemason and Councillor, was unlawfully CC’d into correspondence about me from Clwyd Health Authority officials after I had complained about Dafydd. When all this with the boys who Norris had wrecked was going on, I was STILL trying to get answers from Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities and was simply met with the Gang perjuring themselves in the High Court in a series of attempts to have me jailed…

[The group of numpties appointed by Clwyd to ponder on the problems presented by Norris’s victims] met throughout 1993 and completed its work January 1994. (ii) All matters thoroughly investigated and Child Protection Conferences convened. Police involved and consulted throughout and decided with CPS against prosecutions.

In 1993 F and me were prosecuted on the basis of Brandt’s perjury. The DPP at the time was Dame Babs Mills of Middle Temple, a la Ronnie Waterhouse and Greville Janner…

(iii) Assessment of risk and intervention plans for all children carried out with the assistance of an independent Consultant with many years experience of work with young people who are sexually aggressive. . . .

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

(v) Staffing levels enhanced and support provided to Care Staff to increase levels of awareness and vigilance. (vi) A block imposed on all male admissions to Cherry Hill from March ’93 to October ’94. (vii) All parents kept fully informed of concerns, information shared and joint action agreed. (viii) All children offered health counselling and support.”

Ronnie maintained that: ‘In our judgment, however, this response obscures Clwyd’s failure to tackle the central problems referred to in the Roberts’ memorandum of August 1993. Moreover, it was merely a repetition of what the Independent Panel had already been told. Thus, (iii) corresponds with what Jevons described as the situation “as of February 1993”. On (v), the Panel had already commented, “We have been told that this support, provided by two specialist workers, was considered by residential staff to be the most useful input of all that was offered. It was, however, time limited due to financial constraints. The input of one of these workers was withdrawn after two sessions, the reason for which is unclear”. As to (vi), as the Panel pointed out, Paul Richards said in his June 1993 memorandum that the block on admissions would not have provided any respite because Cherry Hill was full. The Panel had already criticised (vii) and (viii) also, saying that staff had told them of delays of up to six weeks in informing some parents and commenting on the counselling “Health counselling is indeed vitally important for all young people in residential care. However, it cannot be considered sufficient to impact on sexual offending behaviour”.

Although we have some sympathy with Clwyd Social Services Department because nationally there was little by way of professional experience or practice guidance to assist in addressing such a situation, there were serious deficiencies in the Department’s response to the
serious problem that had arisen at Cherry Hill. In the end, technical procedural considerations are far less important than the actual effectiveness of the steps taken to protect from further harm the children involved and from future harm other children who might subsequently be affected.’

Ronnie identified breaches of good practice! ‘The consequences of these breaches of good practice were that senior managers failed to tackle the central issues affecting the welfare of the children involved and became preoccupied with procedural matters of marginal relevance. The residential care staff were given limited assistance. Discussion was bedevilled by misguided emphasis on the question whether the boys’ conduct had been “consensual” and they did not receive any professional treatment despite the advice that was received from Linda Butler.’

So none of this lot could do anything to stop the huge ring that they had all facilitated for years. But then neither could Ronnie Waterhouse.

 

There were three children’s homes in north Clwyd that hosted impressive degrees of criminality that was met with equally impressive degrees of fuckwittery when matters were brought to the attention of the authorities. These three homes were located in the former parliamentary constituency of West Flintshire and linked in the sense that they catered for similar children in the same broad geographical area.

Swinging Sir Anthony Meyer was the Tory MP for West Flintshire (which evolved into Clwyd North West), 1970-92. Swinging Sir Anthony’s grandmother Adele Meyer was a good friend of Bertrand Russell’s first wife and they established the forerunner of mother and babies clinics in St Pancras, as discussed in eg. ‘International Women’s Day! Let’s Celebrate with Jane…’. Swinging Sir Anthony had previously served as the MP for Eton and Slough, 1964-66, but after losing that seat and spending a few years in the wilderness, Lord Rhyl aka Nigel Birch ensured that Sir Anthony was a shoe-in for his seat when Lord Rhyl stood down. Lord Rhyl and Sir Anthony were both Of Gwynne And Dafydd, although Sir Anthony hated Beata Brookes, another Tory member of the Gang and the mother of all internal Gang wars between them in 1983 nearly destroyed the constituency Tory Party. Sir Anthony was a mate of Heseltine’s and they had two goes at colluding with each other and the Gang in an attempt to bag Heseltine the leadership of the Tory Party. See previous posts.

The homes were Upper Downing in Whitford, near Holywell; South Meadow and Park House, both in Prestatyn.

Upper Downing was opened in 1948 as a home registered under the National Assistance Act 1948 for 48 older boys and girls. The home was administered by the former Flintshire County Council and in the 1971 Regional Plan the intention was that it should be replaced in 1973 by homes in St Asaph and Prestatyn. In the event it survived the transfer of responsibility to Clwyd County Council for nearly three years until 31 January 1977 and it was described latterly as a reception centre. The resident children attended local schools.

We are aware of only five complainants who were resident at Upper Downing after 1 April 1974. Of these, three complained of sexual abuse by a gardener/driver at the home, who is now dead. An account was given to the police in July 1992 by one of the three, who had been taken into care at the age of 15 years in 1974. Whilst at Upper Downing between 2 March and November 1976 and aged 17 years (after placements at Cartrefle and Rhiwlas children’s homes in north Wales) she was permitted to work at a cafe in Holywell, travelling there and back by minibus. On Saturday 6 March 1976 the driver took her to a public house to watch a darts match on the pretext that other girls and a female member of staff would be there. She drank seven or eight cherry brandies at the public house and was then taken to the house of a friend of the driver, where she passed out after a couple of further drinks. She came to on the floor, finding the gardener performing oral sex upon her whilst his friend fondled her upper body. She ran from the house and was seen at 2.35 am by a policeman, crying and apparently drunk. She told him what had happened and was taken to the police station, where she alleged that the gardener had had intercourse with her. she did not make a written statement at that point. She was later taken to Rhiwlas before being returned to Upper Downing.

We have seen numerous documents recording subsequent developments in the matter. The girl declined to lay a complaint if it would involve her appearing in court as a witness but she did not want the gardener to “get away with it”. He denied any form of sexual assault or other impropriety, claiming that the girl had had permission to go to the public house with him and that she had behaved bizarrely later because she had made herself drunk. The Deputy Director of Social Services (Gledwyn Jones) and the Principal Social Worker (Children) (Gordon Ramsay) both attended at Upper Downing on 7 March 1976 and statements were provided by the relevant social services staff. Prosecution of the gardener was not considered to be appropriate but he was suspended from duty without pay on 8 March 1976 at a meeting that day with the Director of Social Services (Emlyn Evans) and others. The following day the Personnel Sub-Committee accepted a recommendation to dismiss him for gross misconduct in: (1) taking the girl out of Upper Downing without the consent of the Officer In Charge or his Deputy; (2) using a County Council vehicle without authority; (3) taking the girl to two public houses, where she had consumed intoxicating liquor; and (4) his subsequent behaviour in relation to the girl.

The subsequent behaviour presumably being sexually assaulting/exploiting the girl…

There followed an appeal to the appeals committee, which was dismissed on 16 June 1976. The gardener, who was a shop steward of NUPE, applied to an Industrial Tribunal for compensation on the ground of wrongful dismissal. The girl failed to appear to give evidence at the hearing and the Industrial Tribunal ruled in the gardener’s favour on 9 December 1976 on the grounds that (a) the allegation of sexual interference had been excluded on 8 March but had still been put before the Personnel Sub-Committee on 9 March and (b) other procedural unfairness. The Industrial Tribunal also found that the applicant had contributed to his dismissal and reduced the assessment of his loss by 50%. The award to the 56 year old gardener was £507.20. He was not re-employed by Clwyd County Council.

In 1976 Gen Sec of NUPE was Alan Fisher (20 June 1922-20 March 1988), who was born in Birmingham and spent his entire working life at NUPE, serving as General Secretary, 1968-82. This was a period of rapid growth for NUPE and included the Winter of Discontent. In 1981, Fisher served as President of the TUC.

Jezza Corbyn worked for NUPE while Fisher was General Secretary. When Wedgie Benn challenged Denis Healey for the Deputy Leadership of the Labour Party in 1981, NUPE were solidly behind Wedgie Benn. Previous posts have discussed how Wedgie Benn, like the politicians whom he loathed, colluded with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd and Gwynne and tried to use that for his own benefit, as well of course as his Support For The NHS and tete a tetes with those at Tommy’s. Then there was that arrangement in which Eric Varley stepped down from his Chesterfield seat to take up a senior position with Coalite plc – and a seat in the Lords – allowing Wedgie Benn to replace him in Chesterfield, a seat on the site of the Derbyshire ring that exchanged staff with the Gang in north Wales just when the Gang needed reinforcements. I wrote to Wedgie Benn re the mental health services in north Wales after he stepped down as an MP; I received a one line reply a la Michael Mansfield and then within a short while Wedgie Benn made a guest appearance at Galeri in Caernarfon…

John Jillings who was Chair of the Jillings investigation into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council from 1974 was the former Director of Derbyshire Social Services. The Fearless Jillings was commissioned by Clwyd County Council themselves and Jillings launched the investigation in early Feb 1994, when the Gang knew that they might be in serious trouble… The Jillings Panel reported back in the spring of 1996; their Report was famously completely suppressed on the legal advice of the QC retained by Clwyd’s insurers, Municipal Mutual, who also insured the North Wales Police. The QC concerned was Michael Beloff, colleague of Cherie and good friend of both Miranda and Cherie. Beloff’s dad Lord Max was a friend of Ioan Bowen Rees. Lord Merlyn-Rees was a Director of Municipal Mutual at the time. It’s all detailed extensively in previous posts…

 

A biography of Fisher tells us that Alan Wainwright Fisher, died on 20 March 1988 in Gwynedd no less. Fisher it is claimed ‘improved pay for workers in local government, sanitation and sewage, and the NHS’.

In March 1988 I began my job with Vincent Marks’s team at Surrey University. Vincent’s brother John Marks was Chairman of the BMA at the time and was in battle with the Tories and Ken Clarke in particular and I was used as the football. The BMA were providing ‘advice’ to Dafydd and his colleagues re the ‘problem’ that was me. The job with Vincent was yet another trap laid by the Gang…

Alan Fisher’s fellow trade union baron David Williams was the Gen Sec of COHSE, 1983-87. David Williams had Trained as an Angel at Denbigh when Gwynne was at his lobotomising best. Williams was a member of the Labour Party’s NEC, 1981-83.

Fisher left secondary school in 1939 to join the local office of NUPE as a junior clerk, later becoming a district organizer (1953) and General Secretary (1968–82). Under his leadership, membership grew from 150,000 to more than 700,000, making NUPE the fifth largest union in the TUC. He was known as a fiery speaker and a well-organized strategist who planned the “dirty jobs” sttrike of 1971 and made controversial appointments. He presided over the 1978–79 “winter of discontent,” when NUPE staged a series of disruptive strikes in an attempt to force the government to increase earnings beyond the 5 percent limit that had been established in July 1978...

So the gardener who doubled up as the NUPE shop steward and assaulted a 14 year old girl under circumstances that suggested a high degree of planning on the part of him and his mates bagged £500 in Dec 1976. I presume that the girl received nothing but I can imagine what her medical and social work records say about her… I wonder how she has fared in life?

Let’s seen how Ronnie summed up this horror of the molesting gardener who was only paid half of what he should have been for the trauma of sexually assaulting the 14 year old girl: ‘We are not in a position to reach any conclusion about the veracity of this complainant’s allegations of sexual abuse by the deceased gardener in March 1976. It is right to record, however, that there were two other girl residents who complained of less serious sexual interference by him in April 1975 but who were not believed by the woman officer then in charge, who left in November 1975’.

‘By the time that complainants were interviewed by the police in the course of the major police investigation the man in question had died’.

The sexually predatory gardener was dead, like so many of the people who’s names were on my records who were party to such serious crimes by the time that my lawyers managed to obtain those records, more than 20 years after I first asked for them. Dafydd, D.G.E. Wood etc are still with us, but I imagine that if I did ever say that I wanted to press charges I’d be told that the statute of limitations applies and ooh dear these offences were committed so long ago…

Of course no-one knew what that gardener was doing to the kids in care. Even the gardener was at it, but then as everyone else, including the Top Docs were, why on earth would he have restrained himself? Furthermore, as the NUPE shop steward, the gardener would have the gen on everyone else who was assaulting the kids, including those in rather more senior positions than him. Such as Sir Basil and Lady Rosemary.

As a result of the publicity associated with the Industrial Tribunal hearing the Chairman of an organisation called “Clwyd Watchdogs” wrote on 31 December 1976 to the Chairman of Clwyd Social Services Committee suggesting that the “affair” had revealed a number of very grave weaknesses in the running of community homes, notably: (a) the lack of clear, written instructions to staff (it seemed that there was only one slim document, which (he said) provided “the very minimum of enlightenment”); (b) inadequate provision for in-service training; and (c) no guidelines for staff with respect to children leaving the premises.

Had ‘Clwyd Watchdogs’ forgotten the rather more pressing matter of the kids being constantly sexually assaulted by anyone who felt like it who then received a bit of cash or a promotion if the kids complained and actually managed to demonstrate the validity of their complaint?

Another complaint also came to light in March 1976. The dismissed gardener had reported to Geoffrey Wyatt (Principal Officer) that Heather Lynn, then aged 24 years, who was serving her probationary period as a housemother at Upper Downing that started in October 1975, had been allowing a boy resident (K), aged 15 years to spend a lot of time in her bedroom and that K had been seen leaving her bedroom on one occasion at 7 am. It was alleged also that Lynn had begun drinking heavily. By the time of this report K had been transferred to Little Acton Assessment Centre but concern had been expressed by the staff there and a social worker that K was receiving frequent letters from Lynn, some with sexual connotations, and that their relationship “appeared to be very involved”. Little Acton Assessment Centre was the scene of yet more crimes and such a tangle of lies on the part of so many people that it was difficult to ascertain exactly who were the most serious offenders. See previous posts.

The report was treated as an official complaint and K and Lynn were interviewed. They both denied that there had been anything improper in their relationship.

See the source image

K said that he never went alone to Lynn’s bedroom but that he sometimes took her tea in the morning at 7 am or knocked on her door in case she had overslept. Lynn confirmed that boys did go into her bedroom. She said also that she was inexperienced in child care, admitting that she had become “over involved” with K, which might have been avoided if she had had more guidance.

None of the letters referred to were available at the time of the investigation, ‘except for an unsigned note in code’. That was highly convenient, although the unsigned note in code could well have read ‘K: See you tonight, in my bedroom, for hours of steamy sex and booze. Dr DA has offered Class As if we want them. The gardener will be dropping in as well, the gardener who doubles up as the NUPE shop steward and who is also shagging the kids. With deepest, passionate love, Heather Lynn, Probationary Housemother at Upper Downing’.

Lynn admitted writing letters to K, including the note, but could not remember the circumstances in which she had written the coded note and “was unable to explain its contents”, according to Wyatt’s subsequent memorandum to the Director of Administration dated 22 March 1976. K, on the other hand, strenuously denied that the note was from Lynn and alleged that it was from a girl in Rhyl; but Wyatt formed the opinion that he was “covering up”.  The Disturbed Kids did that constantly, when they had time to fit in the Covering Up around the Telling Lies To Get Compensation, where could they have learnt it from?

Wyatt concluded that the lack of any substantial information to corroborate the complaints made it difficult to pursue the matter further but he recommended that Lynn’s probationary period should be extended by six months on the ground that her first period of employment had not been entirely satisfactory. Thus offering more opportunities to have sex with the boys in her care. Which is indeed what Heather Lynn did, as discussed in ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’

This recommendation appears to have been agreed earlier with Emlyn Evans (one-time Deputy Director and then Director of Clwyd Social Services) and Peter Gibson of the Legal and Administration staff who, jointly with Wyatt, interviewed Lynn on 11 March 1976 in the presence of a NUPE representative.

See the source image

In her written evidence Lynn maintained her denial of any improper association with K. He, however, gave oral evidence before us, confirming his earlier statements, beginning in May 1993, in which he had given a very detailed account of how sexual intercourse between him and Lynn had begun in her bedroom at Upper Downing and had developed quickly, at Lynn’s instigation, into a very regular occurrence. He had been at Upper Downing for only a short period from 20 October 1975 to 12 January 1976, when there were about 16 children at the home, of whom half were very young. Subsequently, when he had been interviewed whilst at Little Acton, he had not told the interviewers what had occurred because he had thought that he would not be believed and that he would get into trouble. Later, he had been at Cartrefle from 4 June 1976 to 5 July 1977 and Lynn had been transferred there from 20 December 1976: he alleged that she had tried then to renew the relationship but that he had avoided her, staying out of her way, except on two occasions when she had taken him out in her parents’ car and he had had sex with her.

In the course of his oral evidence the coded note was produced to K, to his manifest surprise. He explained the childishly simple numerical code that had been adopted and translated the note as follows: “A is 1 Superman Dear (K) I love you more than anything in the world and if that is what you want it’s okay by me. I’m not free and easy so you must realise how special you are to me. We must be very careful tonight though. Encyclopaedias Forever XX.”

Ronnie commented that ‘In the light of all the evidence before us we are fully satisfied that K has given us an essentially truthful account of his relationship with Lynn. We accept that he had no previous experience of sexual intercourse at the time and, in our judgment, her conduct did amount to serious sexual abuse of him.’

A constant theme throughout the Waterhouse Report that was ignored by people commenting on the evidence given by those who were Lying To Get Compensation, that rather than malicious lies, the kids stated repeatedly that they did not want to get people into trouble. Which is very much my memory of the Empowered Service Users’ line of thinking. People did not want to get other people ‘into trouble’ if they thought that there might have been a chance that they had misinterpreted a benign act. F and I repeatedly decided not to make formal complaints about Tony Francis when he was doing some very odd things because we were told by other members of staff that ‘Tony is ill’, ‘he is in severe pain’, ‘he is very stressed’ etc. It was all true, but no-one told us that Tony had been doing dreadful things to us and other Empowered Service Users for many, many years, that he had organised and planned traps and fit-ups with third parties, that he’d lied about us, encouraged other people to lie about us and that it was he who was 100% behind trying to force me into the arms (so to speak) of Dafydd…

Since beginning this blog I’ve been told that Tony was behind much of the aggro that Merfyn the VC experienced after he refused to force me out of Bangor University. Tony registered for a Masters degree in History, in Merfyn’s own Dept and at the time I presumed ‘Oh, he’s trying to creep to Merfyn, probably to smear me’. I’ve been told that it was the very opposite; Tony was busy befriending people who didn’t like Merfyn and between the lot of them they created a very toxic mix…

Things weren’t too bad at Upper Downing Ronnie was relieved to know: ‘The only other relevant complaint of which we are aware was made by a former girl resident who was at Upper Downing for about seven weeks in the summer of 1976. Her allegation was that she was punched in the face by a young male member of the staff, with the result that she knocked over a settee, sustaining a black eye and a very swollen finger. Her injuries were seen by a social worker and a woman member of the residential staff but she did not wish to make a formal complaint. The man who struck her was not regarded as a suitable residential care worker. He was employed at Upper Downing for a comparatively short period and left to work as a postman.’

So a girl received a punch in the face from an adult male member of staff, the injuries were too severe to be denied but the girl decided not to make a formal complaint. I bet she didn’t want to make a formal complaint, she knew that she was going to be stuck there with him and would get another punch in the face or worse. It was of course the responsibility of the social worker and woman member of residential staff to get that girl out of the way of the bloke who punched her in the face, ring the police and have him arrested. But no, the girl was asked while no doubt still dripping in blood if she’d like to make a formal complaint about him.

I can only ever remember being asked once if I wanted to make a formal complaint; it was about Dafydd and Alun Davies asked me. It was in the mid-1990s, years after I had made my initial complaints about Dafydd. My records were still being unlawfully withheld from me and I had no idea that they contained detailed descriptions written by other staff of Dafydd’s law breaking and documentation compiled by Top Docs in London stating that Dafydd had told them that I was ‘attractive and seductive’ and that the Top Docs believed that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and they thought that Tony Francis was as well.

After yet another endless discussion with Ella in which she emphasised that Dafydd hadn’t touched me so there was nothing to complain about (I’d got away from Dafydd, he didn’t get the chance; he had still unlawfully arrested me, illegally imprisoned me, turned up in the dorm in Denbigh at midnight to ‘see me’, hit me in front of witnesses on one occasion, as well as the bog standard constant perjury, lies, forging of documentation, conspiracy, breach of confidence etc) and after F and I had been arrested God knows how many times in the previous few weeks, I had got so fed up that I’d started crying. At that point, Alun Davies appeared in the doorway and asked me for the first time EVER ‘Well do you want to make a formal complaint about Dafydd?’ I just said ‘No, I don’t think that I do’. Well I had only written what must have been over 100 letters to a whole variety of Official Authorities over the previous eight years with details, dates, venues, names of witnesses etc…

I rather got the impression that my ‘formal complaint’ would go nowhere, as Ella had indeed implied that it would…

In the 1970s, Ella had worked as a midwife in Chester. She will have known that Top Docs across the whole of north Wales had unlawfully conspired to prevent any woman in north Wales from accessing NHS abortions on any grounds, yet would refer them on demand to a ‘private abortionist’ in Chester who was so dangerous that he was putting lives as risk. Ella will have known that Gwynne and Dafydd were ‘treating’ patients from Cheshire for homosexuality and no doubt other Serious Illnesses. She almost certainly had at least heard about the organised abuse in Cheshire that was linked to the organised abuse in north Wales. The were Much More Respectable in Cheshire than the sheepshaggers were over in north Wales, but Cheshire used north Wales as their latrine and the Posh of north Wales did their shopping and socialising in Cheshire.

Years later, when I told Ysbyty Gwynedd that I wanted to make a formal complaint about a violent male healthcare assistant who, with three of his female colleagues had inflicted injuries on me – I was kept in a locked ward and denied contact with the police until my injuries had healed and then immediately arrested for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’ after Davies and eight NHS Angels had perjured themselves – the CEO Keith Thomson ordered the North Wales Police to video my interview. As I was leaving the hospital to go to the police station, I was told by a mole that Thomson and the police had made an arrangement to mount a prosecution against me for wasting police time or even perjury if the charges against my assailant didn’t stick.

My injuries had healed, I was faced with a load of lying NHS staff in cahoots with lying police officers so I told them to forget about it. I later found out that four other female patients had made complaints about the same male healthcare assistant that I had. Like me, they had all woken up in the middle of the night to find him in their rooms, unaccompanied, over their beds, pinning them down….

There really is nothing wrong with the NHS in north Wales that millions more quid from Drakeford won’t put right, along with yet another news item about Angels Being Attacked By Patients.

 

Here’s Ronnie’s conclusion re Upper Downing: ‘As far as we have been able to ascertain, there were few complaints about Upper Downing in relation to the period when Clwyd County Council managed it (and before). The former residents whose evidence we have seen have, in general, described their time in the home as happy: it seems that a genuine effort was made to create a homely atmosphere, even though most of the residential care staff were untrained. The two serious matters that did arise in 1976 came to light quite quickly and were then investigated with a proper sense of urgency at a high level within the Social Services Department. We do not think that it would be appropriate to criticise the procedural steps then taken because these were the early days of implementation of the provisions of the new employment legislation beginning with the Employment Act 1972. The failure to dismiss Heather Lynn then was however highly questionable, despite K’s denials of any improper association with her; the coded note could have been deciphered by anyone with an elementary knowledge of the subject and would thus have thrown a clear light upon the truth. As it was Lynn survived and failed to learn from the experience, as her eventual conduct at Cartrefle demonstrated.’

Heather Lynn carried on having sex with the boys in her care when she was transferred to Cartrefle…

Previous posts have discussed how at the Waterhouse Inquiry, it was revealed that Geoffrey Wyatt, a senior manager for Clwyd Social Services, excused himself re the Bryn Estyn excesses by stating that although he was the line manager of Matt Arnold, the Head of Bryn Estyn, Arnold was paid more than him, ignored everything that Wyatt said and simply rang the Welsh Office directly whenever Arnold required something.

South Meadow Community Home South Meadow, in Ffordd Ffrith, Prestatyn, was also a long established children’s home. It was a large house in the centre of a residential area and it was opened by Flintshire County Council, probably on 1 January 1967, as a home for up to 12 children. In its grounds was a cottage providing accommodation for some of the staff but latterly this was used to provide residents with training for independence. The resident children of appropriate age attended local schools. South Meadow survived for 16 years from 1974 under the management of Clwyd County Council until its functions were transferred on 14 September 1990 to Cefndy Hostel, Rhyl, formerly an adult hostel for the physically handicapped, which became known thereafter as New South Meadow. Similarly, Park House closed in August 1991, when its functions were transferred to New South Meadow. The new amalgamated unit then lasted only two years before closing in October 1993.

I wrote to Michael Mansfield about the abuses of Gwynedd social workers in either Sept or Oct 1993. MM sent me a one-line reply. I have since been told that MM sent up the distress flare and all Radical Lawyers were warned not to take a case for me against the Gang if I approached them.

See the source image

Ronnie continued: ‘As we have said earlier, we have not received any complaint about New South Meadow and we deal here, therefore, with the history of South Meadow itself as a community home in the 16 years period referred to in the preceding paragraph. We know of five complainants who were resident there before 1974 and who complain of being abused there by one or both of a married couple then on the staff but these complaints refer to alleged incidents long before the takeover by Clwyd and therefore outside our terms of reference.

1974 to 1981: the regime of Joan Glover. The Officer-in-Charge of South Meadow for about the first half of the relevant period was Joan Glover and she has been the main target of the complaints of which we are aware. She had become a housemother at South Meadow on 1 October 1969, at the age of 22 years. She remained there until the end of 1972 and up to that point she had not received any training: she had lived in Staffordshire previously, working in the packing department of a Royal Doulton factory, teaching at Sunday School and doing voluntary work in youth clubs.’

Staffordshire was the location of another big ring linked to the Gang, that was concealed by all the local MPs – including Jennie Lee, widow of Nye – the NHS and Keele University. Michael Mansfield is a graduate of Keele, as is Alun Michael, who was named by Gang member David Hunt as taking orders from NUPE. See ‘The Paedophiles Friends of Cardiff North’. Sir Clough Williams-Ellis of Swinging Croesor had a daughter who married a man from Stoke-on-Trent and who moved to the area to live, to assist the Williams-Ellis family business. Which as any fule kno is Portmeirion pottery.

‘However, in 1973 [Joan Glover] took a year’s course for RCCOs (the CRCCYP) at Salford Institute of Technology before returning to South Meadow as senior housemother or Officer-in-Charge from 1 January 1974.

Although Joan Glover had apparently had an unblemished record as a housemother at South Meadow and had received a letter from Flintshire’s Director of Social Services thanking her warmly for her service in that capacity (when she left in 1973 for her training course), there were difficulties soon after she returned and became Officer-in-Charge. She received a copy of a memorandum from the Director of Social Services (Emlyn Evans) dated 20 June 1974 and addressed to “Staff in Residential Establishments for Children and Young People”. This read: “Corporal Punishment in Residential Establishments for Children and Young People 1.Revised Community Home Regulations are to be published at an early date. These regulations follow the policy of both former Authorities that no member of staff will inflict corporal punishment on any child or young person in any circumstances (Corporal punishment to include striking, slapping, pushing etc.). 2.The Children & Young Persons Act (Community Home Regulations) 1972 states that `The control of a Community Home shall be maintained on the basis of good personal and professional relationships between staff and the children resident therein’. 3.The above Clwyd County Council policy decision is drawn to the attention of all staff employed in the appropriate Homes in order that there can be no unfortunate misunderstanding or misconduct, and any infringement of this policy will be viewed with the utmost gravity. Please ensure that every member of your staff is aware of this regulation.”

Despite this clear instruction, Glover was involved in an incident on 26 August 1975 with a girl resident, then aged 13 years, in the course of which Glover caught hold of the girl from behind, turned her round and slapped her across the face. The girl in question (M), who had been at South Meadow for only about seven weeks, had undoubtedly proved to be particularly difficult and had been bullying other girls persistently; on the occasion when she was slapped, she had herself just slapped an eight year old girl across the face, knocking her over. Moreover, there had followed further difficulties with M, which had been resolved in the course of the next day or so. Nevertheless, a serious view of the matter was taken and it was investigated by Veronica Pares, then Principal Residential and Day Care Officer, at least to the extent of a full discussion with Glover.

In her oral evidence to the Tribunal, Glover admitted “losing her rag” with M because the latter had been very troublesome. The upshot of the matter was that she was required to meet formally with the Deputy Director and Pares on 29 September 1975, following which she received a written warning and reprimand by letter dated 3 October 1975 from the Director.

We do not know of any further reports or complaints about Joan Glover until 1979 but by that time the other members of the staff at South Meadow had become very restive about her conduct towards the children and her temperament generally. Geoffrey Wyatt (Principal Officer), W.P. Grant (Staffing Officer) and the Area Officer (Mrs E G Griffiths) all became involved in the matter and a number of meetings took place between officials, with the staff and with Glover herself. The matter came to light when, on 21 June 1979, members of the residential care staff at South Meadow told the Area Officer of their concern about Glover’s behaviour, which (they said) had become more noticeable over the past few months. They reported that Glover was shouting at the children, extremely irritable and very tense, impatient and intolerant; and their concern was said to be for the children, who were becoming frightened by this behaviour. It was said also that the RDCO had commented on this behaviour pattern. The Area Officer commented on this report that, to her knowledge, Glover had no outside interests and was very insular. She said also that Glover was not delegating work to her staff and that communication and staff relationships were breaking down.’

The day to day conduct of staff in the children’s homes was so dreadful – and the kids were used to truly appalling conduct – that for Glover’s conduct to have been described as such, it must have been very bad indeed. In health and social care speak, ‘communication and staff relationships breakdown’ translated as ‘all out war between people who hated each other, after many years of very bad behaviour breaching the law’.

Waterhouse continues: ‘There was no improvement in the following month, although Glover was undergoing treatment from her own doctor and the County’s Occupational Medical Officer was consulted. She claimed to have been unaware of anything amiss until she learnt from her doctor of the Occupational Medical Officer’s interest in her condition.’

So a GP and the Occupational Medical Officer knew about this violent loony who was at war with her colleagues and worked with kids. I note that throughout the Waterhouse Report, not one Top Doc was named. It is traditional in medicine to grant anonymity to patients rather than Top Docs. In north Wales, there was no confidentiality for patients, but in every official investigation or inquiry, the names of the Top Docs treating the crazy abusive staff, even those Top Docs assisting them in retiring early with access to pensions after they had been convicted of assaulting children, or treating (or failing to treat) injured or abused kids were never ever provided.

Dr James Davies, the Tory MP for the Vale of Clwyd, 2015-17, used in his campaigning material his status as a Top Doc from Prestatyn, who’s father and grandfather had been Top Docs in Prestatyn. Dr James’s father and grandfather will have known about Dafydd and Gwynne and his dad will have known about those Sex Therapy Clinics with party music and drinks that Dafydd ran from a house that he owned in Prestatyn. Dr James Davies went to WHICH school in Chester.

Anyone for Uncle Harry or Harriet’s dad? Or indeed Tessa Jowell’s dad? Sister Hutt’s dad? They all Knew About Dafydd and Gwynne.

Waterhouse mentioned how Joan Glover ended up Under The Top Doctors: ‘Eventually, however, one of the housemothers, on behalf of the staff and children, confronted her with these anxieties and advised her to seek medical help.’

Was Joan Glover so excessive that it was feared that an event so serious would occur that police involvement and public scrutiny could not be avoided?

‘The result of these developments was that on 14 August 1979 Wyatt and Grant held meetings, firstly with the staff and then with Glover and six days later it was agreed that she would take four weeks leave from 1 September 1979. It seems to have been agreed also that she would become non-resident Officer-in-Charge, initially for a two months’ trial period; and she lived out from 1 September 1979, at Meliden, for the last 18 months of her period as Officer-in-Charge. Unfortunately, there was little, if any, improvement in Glover’s behaviour when she resumed her work at South Meadow after her holiday. Anxiety was being expressed again by the staff at the home in November 1979 and was being repeated in the following two months. The main problem was that Glover was said to be hitting children still and subjecting them to harsh treatment; she was said to be quite paranoid and it was alleged that she had not really changed since her holiday. There was also confusion for the resident children because Glover’s attitude contrasted strongly with that of another member of the staff when left in charge, who was so kindly that the children were sometimes uncontrollable in the evening.’

I can only imagine what Glover was doing if she was considered ‘harsh’ by the standards of children’s homes in north Wales. ‘Paranoid’ as applied to a member of the Gang will have meant seriously mad; it could well have been Ronnie-speak for Glover making seriously weird accusations about the children. The ‘kindly’ member of staff will have been someone who let the kids run riot after whatever Glover had done to them before the kindly member of staff arrived on duty. Or that might have just been Ronnie’s excuse for traumatised, injured, rioting kids after a few hours in Glover’s care.

‘We are not aware of any steps taken to remedy the situation in the following 12 months but it then resolved itself because in February 1981 Glover applied successfully for a post as a housemother with the Pentecostal Child Care Association.’

Presumably with glowing references… There was a Pentecostal Church in Bangor. They were very cliquey but used to hold singing sessions in the town centre. The singing sessions were brilliant, people used to join in for entertainment because it was very happy clappy. However, there was an underbelly to the Pentecosts, at least those in Bangor. I knew an Empowered Service User who went to the Pentecostal Church who was clearly experiencing serious emotional damage at their hands. They kept telling her that she wasn’t ‘getting better’ because she wouldn’t put her problems at the feet of Jesus. I knew this girl quite well; she had grown up as a kid in care in north Wales from the age of six, she had been fostered by two Gwynedd social workers who had violently attacked her and she constantly tried to kill herself. She really couldn’t cope with adult life at all and adopted the style of a small child of about six, although she was in her 20s. F and one of my friends used to observe ‘She needs a mother not a bloody psychiatrist’. She was treated very callously by the Hergest staff who labelled her an attention seeker – she was, but she was desperate – and then Tony Francis ordered that she was not to treated. She was discharged and attempted suicide in the car park of Ysbyty Gwynedd, so was readmitted hours later after the ambulancemen found her…

The distressed Empowered Service User kept trying to talk to the Hergest staff about her experiences with the Pentecosts. They refused to discuss it, even the distress that the Pentecosts were causing, ‘because we’re not allowed to give advice on spiritual matters’. (Although Ysbyty Gwynedd employed chaplains who were friends with Dafydd.)

The saga with the Pentecosts continued; they were the main social support for the Empowered one, because Hergest refused to provide support…

There was a German woman who lived in Water Street in Rachub in the 1980s and 90s who was active in the Pentecostal Church in Bangor. She kept very much to herself and her family, apart from her Church activities, although I always found her very pleasant superficially, at the bus stop etc. She must have known the Empowered Service User who had suffered at the hands of the Gwynedd foster carers though. At one point, a particularly mad, offensive resident of Rachub tried to befriend the German Pentecost but the German Pentecost wouldn’t have anything to do with her. I thought that the German Pentecost must have simply had far more sense than to involve herself with that person; it was only after I began writing this blog that I realised that the mad, offensive person who tried to befriend the German Pentecost had worked in the Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor and after years of telling everyone how appalling Nefyn Dodd, the manager, was, suddenly, during the Waterhouse Inquiry, couldn’t remember Dodd ever abusing the kids. It was during the Waterhouse Inquiry that she tried to befriend the German Pentecost.

Joan Glover left South Meadow to take up the appointment with the Pentecostal Child Care Association on 27 March 1981. Ronnie observed ‘It lasted for about two years, until she was made redundant, and she has been employed as a family support worker since then.’

So Mad Joan continued working with vulnerable people and kids then and was still doing so well into the 1980s at least. I note that Ronnie didn’t mention WHO employed Joan Glover as a family support worker after she parted company with the Pentecostal Child Care Association in 1983. Joan will have been working for them when I complained about Gwynne and then found myself at War with the Gang…

Ronnie discussed Glover further: ‘Two former child residents of South Meadow confirmed the general picture that we have given of Glover’s behaviour during her period as Officer-in-Charge. The witness (X) who gave oral evidence about her was particularly clear and impressive. He was there from the age of five to 14 years, that is, from December 1968 until 1977; and he was there with two brothers because their parents’ marriage had broken down. He described Glover as a “Jekyll and Hyde” character, a split personality. He was bedwetting about twice a week for a time and he alleged that Glover “took against him” for this reason and would push his face into the wet bedclothes. Assaults on one or other of the children by Glover were a daily occurrence. X himself was smacked on the head or legs; she would grab him by the back of his hair; and she would crack him with her “clogs or Scholls” (which she always used to wear).

He referred also to a particular girl resident, who suffered this kind of treatment every couple of days but who, on other occasions, would be hugged by Glover and praised as if she were Glover’s own child. His older brother, who was more interested in football than in schoolwork, was also, for example, “whacked” on the back of his head with a shoe because he had not done his homework.

In more general evidence about South Meadow X said that he had respect for the way in which it was run but the children were not treated with respect by Glover specifically.

‘Ah give us a cuddle dear’.

Image result for 1970s scholl sandals images

There were other members of the staff who sympathised and were approachable and he mentioned particularly a part-time member of the staff who used to take children to tea at her house for a break. She would also stay around if there was “an atmosphere” in order to protect the children.’

‘An atmosphere’ is another north Wales euphemism. A member of the Mental Health Act Commission in the 1980s stated that the Commission was worried about Denbigh because ‘of the atmosphere’. Robert Bluglass, in his 1988/89 cover-up of the criminality of the Gang noted in his Report that staff witnesses from Denbigh had told him that the ‘atmosphere’ in Bryn Golau Ward was ‘oppressive’. Bryn Golau was a kitchen, a day room, a smaller day room and two dorms for sleeping and the only facilities were a billiard table, a TV and a ping pong table accompanied by one ping pong ball which was not replaced after it broke when I spent two days playing with it. Every patient was held there illegally and some of them had been there for a year. One young man who had been at a university in the north of England before he Went Mad just slept on the floor of the billiard room all day – patients weren’t allowed in the dorms during the day ‘because if we let them do that, they just sleep all day’ – because, as he said to me, ‘there is absolutely nothing else to do here, nothing’. 

There was only one bath in Bryn Golau, that was in a locked room and if you actually used it, Angels would crash into the bathroom and offer to ‘help’ one to have a bath. The other alternative was a wash at the sinks that were in the communal bogs. I have recently blogged about how hidden cameras filmed the patients everywhere, including in the bath and at those sinks and the footage was used as wanking material by staff and was offered to punters who were bidding for the sexual services of identified patients.

The Top Docs responsible for Bryn Golau at the time were Dafydd, Tony Francis and Neil Davies. 

Other oppressive aspects of the atmosphere in Bryn Golau were the violent SEN Steven Rose, Dafydd’s midnight ward rounds in which I was the only patient ‘reviewed’, the lies told by staff to provide excuses for the transfer of patients to Risley Remand Centre and the staff accessing confidential info about patients and then using it to cause them as much upset as possible. If the staff were lucky, young men who had been buggered in the children’s homes would respond to sexual slurs (such as calling the victim of the old paedophiles a ‘nonce’) by threatening to or actually smacking the male Angel in the mouth, which justified multiple Angels beating the Empowered Service User to a pulp.

F was in Denbigh in 1986, but I didn’t know him then because he was on a different ward. The male Angels insulted him constantly and ordered him to ‘take off your clothes’ for no good reason; F refused, the Angels yelled louder, ‘take off your clothes’. F didn’t even respond with the obvious, QUE???, he simply asked them to say ‘please’. On F’s ward the Angels were wearing the quasi-Military uniforms of those who Cared and F flipped one of the epaulettes and said ‘Who are you then, Field Marshal?’ F was dragged down a corridor, jabbed in the buttocks and was out cold for a few hours. I bet that was documented as a ‘violent attack’ on the Angels as well.

Ooh there was a bit of an atmosphere…

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Waterhouse noted that ‘Most of the staff would have seen what was happening but only a couple of them would stand up to Glover. Other members of the staff did on occasions slap children but they did so very rarely.’

Business as usual then, a la Steven Rose. The other staff didn’t drag me down a corridor and tell me that it was tempting to beat me up, but they did watch Rose do it, fail to intervene and later when I challenged them told me to ‘just forget about him’. Many months after I left Denbigh, the final response to my complaint about Rose – after a few letters were completely ignored – was that all staff who worked with Mr Rose never saw him behave in an unprofessional way on any occasion. Staff had testified that I was Paranoid And Extremely Disturbed At The Time. Although they did admit that I had been detained unlawfully. Furthermore I now had to piss off and shut up about Steven Rose because he was no longer working at Denbigh, he had been transferred to Park Lane Hospital. Park Lane and Moss Side Hospitals on Merseyside made up Ashworth Hospital. In the 1990s there were two Inquiries into Ashworth, because there was an atmosphere at Ashworth too. Part of one Inquiry was into the death of a patient at the hands of the Angels. One Prof Robert Bluglass investigated that murder, assisted by a Senior Angel from his own clinic in Birmingham and one of Dafydd’s Senior Angels…

Waterhouse stated that ‘X was also asked about his relationship with his social worker. In response, he said that he had mainly one social worker, who was “useless”. He saw his social worker very rarely, just once every couple of months: he would speak in confidence to this social worker, who would then disclose what had been said. X made a plea for much stricter confidentiality because a child’s social worker should be a proper lifeline and should have greater influence on how the child is treated. The other former resident whose evidence we heard was the girl (M) mentioned in paragraph 17.22 as “an eight year old girl”, for whom Glover had special affection. In her statement M said that Glover treated her like her own child but became ever stricter with her, spanking her (for example) on the bottom with hand and slipper. She had been in care with her two sisters from the age of two years and was at South Meadow from 1969, when she was three years old, until 1982; and the result was that she thought that being smacked all the time was natural. But Glover was the only member of the staff who struck her.’

That girl didn’t just think that being smacked all the time was natural, she thought that being smacked all the time by the crazed Joan Glover in between breaks in which she was treated with ‘special affection’ by the unhinged Ms Glover armed with the Dr Scholl Weapons for Cracking Heads was natural.

Glover was obsessed with her and she said, “Although I loved her and was loved by her, I was very frightened of her”.

Wake up Ronnie, Joan was a lesbian with a thing about young girls…

In the course of her statement to the police in September 1992, M described numerous specific incidents of abuse by Glover, which continued until she was 14 years old, and she said that they were usually followed by apologies. She said also that she had often run away from South Meadow to the local police station and told them what was going on but they had done nothing to help and would merely telephone the home for someone to collect her.

When I escaped from Bryn Golau after being illegally imprisoned there, the police were called. I was returned to Bryn Golau, illegally, where I was held illegally all over again.

The Home Secretary at the time:

‘It is right to record that M did go on, at her own request, in 1982 to live at a hostel in Clevedon, Avon, run by the Pentecostal Child Care Association, of which Glover was then Officer-in-Charge.’

Clevedon near Bristol. Still considered by traditionalists to count as Somerset. The domain of the Top Docs of Bristol, including the father of D.G.E. Wood.

The MP for that constituency since DATE has been dear old Liam Fox, who dines out on his status as a Top Doc. When Joan Glover was the most senior member of day to day staff at the Pentecostal Child Care Association’s hostel in Cleveden, the constituency MP was Arthur Paul Dean, Baron Dean of Harptree, (14 September 1924-1 April 2009).

Paul Dean was born in Northwich, Cheshire, England, on 14 September 1924, and was educated at Ellesmere College and Exeter College, Oxford. He served with the Welsh Guards during the Second World War, being commissioned in that regiment on 28 January 1944. He fought with the regiment’s 2nd Battalion, part of the Guards Armoured Division under Major General Allan Adair, in the Battle of Normandy where he was wounded. Shortly after the end of World War II in Europe Dean served in Germany with the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR) as aide-de-camp (ADC) to the General Officer Commanding (GOC) I Corps, initially Lieutenant-General Sir John Crocker and then Lieutenant-General Sidney Kirkman before Lieutenant-General Ivor Thomas took over from September 1945. Dean retired from the army in 1949.

Dean was MP for North Somerset from 1964 to 1983, and after boundary changes, for Woodspring from 1983 until his retirement in 1992, preceding Liam Fox. Dean was a junior Minister for Health and Social Security during the 1970-1974 Conservative Gov’t, while brutality and chaos presided in north Wales. Health and Social Services were devolved to the Welsh Office, but the DHSS knew what was happening because of the linked rings in other parts of the UK and the Top Docs in the London medical schools who were providing the big umbrella.

Sir Keith Joseph was Secretary of State for the DHSS, 1970-74. Joseph – Leeds MP – Savile HQ – Joseph went back to Macmillan’s Gov’t – knew about Gwynne and Dafydd then. Joseph was part of the scrapping and charades which led to Thatch becoming Leader of the Tory Party on DATE. Edward du Cann, his war with my grandfather and the associated shenanigans in the West Country Tory Party were involved. See eg. ‘The Milk Street and Other Mafias’.

Keith Joseph appointed Barbara Kahan as his adviser for children’s social work when he was at the DHSS – Babs and her husband Dr Vlad – Oxford for years – Babs and Allan Levy QC co-chairs of Inquiry into Staffordshire Pindown Scandal – Reported in DATE – covered up the worst – longstanding ring in Staffordshire linked to the Gang in north Wales

Staffs ring went back as far as 60s CHECK – Jennie Lee – also concealed by Keele University – Peter Righton – Babs

Michael Mansfield and Alun Michael are graduates of Keele

ring was also the cause of the terrible events in the NHS in Staffordshire that were concealed for decades until they erupted on Miranda’s watch. Levy – undertook work for the GMC

Sir Robert Francis QC – Chaired Mid-Staffs NHS Inquiry – Francis was retained by the  MDU to act for the Drs Francis in early 1991 when they tried to have me imprisoned yet again.

When Babs was still a social work manager, one of her social workers was Louis Minster – paedophile who became Director of Richmond-upon-Thames Social Services –

Keith Joseph was appointed Education Secretary on 11 Sept 1981 just before I arrived at UCNW for Freshers’ Week. Joseph remained in post throughout my time at UCNW, indeed until 21 May 1986, the month after my friend Anne Vernon was killed.

From 1982 until his retirement, Paul Dean was a Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons firstly under George Thomas and then Bernard Weatherill. He was knighted in the 1985 New Years Honours.

In 1993 Dean became Baron Dean of Harptree, of Wedmore in the County of Somerset.

Gary Glitter lived at Wedmore – that prison governor who lived nearby on the Somerset Levels who Chaired the Inquiry into the 1989 Risley Riots – Michael Mansfield etc – Ned Sherrin’s family farmed on the Levels –

Molesting clergy who migrated to the Somerset Levels included Rev J.F. Rigg and Carlo’s friend Bishop Peter Ball – See previous posts.

In Jun 1990, Paul Dean ‘as Chair, used his casting vote’. Hansard, 21 June 1990 provides a record of the context, which was an amendment to the NAME OF BILL re abortion law reform:

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Sir Paul Dean) : In accordance with precedent I cast my vote to leave the Bill as reported from the Committee, and accordingly my vote is with the Noes, so the Noes have it. Question accordingly negatived.


Column 1221

Order for Third Reading read.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke : I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

The last vote symbolised the fact that we have talked ourselves to exhaustion with just five minutes left on the Bill. I should like to thank the officials, doctors and lawyers in my Department who helped me and a number of hon. Members during the passage of the Bill. The Government introduced the Bill because of the need to have legislation on the important matter of embryo research. The House has always agreed that we need to have a Bill either banning research or regulating it. The House took advantage of the Bill to introduce law reform, and there was general agreement that we should take this opportunity to resolve the outstanding issues on abortion law to demonstrate to the public that we could come to a conclusion and settle the issue for some years.

It has been agreed throughout that once the House had made its clear decision in a free vote on all the ethical matters under consideration, it was our duty to present legislation to settle matters in the country so that the medical profession, the public and all those who hold strong views would know where they stood on these important matters. We have now resolved all the issues on embryology and abortion and I hope that we can end on a non-controversial note by giving a Third Reading to a Bill that is obviously needed to resolve this issue for some time.

Ms. Richardson : I think that this is the first time that I have seen the Whips so mixed up. I suppose that was because we had a dead heat in the vote on the last amendment. There seemed to be some confusion, but there has been understandable confusion throughout the passage of the Bill.

I should like to add my thanks to those of the Secretary of State for Health for the help that his officials have given us in drafting. We are grateful for that. I should also thank the many people on both sides of the argument who have sent us many letters and much information. All our debates and consideration have made us better informed than we were when the Bill started on its way, and that is because of the attention that outside bodies have given to the House. They gave us the information that we needed to make up our minds. Proceedings in Committee were meticulous, correct and enjoyable and I am grateful to the Minister for Health for her help. I do not think that I have ever had the last word in the House at the closing stage of a Bill. I hope that I shall have the opportunity on future Bills to have the last word again.

Mr. Michael Jopling (Westmorland and Lonsdale) : I am sorry to disappoint the hon. Member for Barking (Ms. Richardson), but I too want to have perhaps the last word by expressing my warmest thanks to my right hon. and hon. Friends in the Government for the way in which they have responded to a point that I made on Second Reading.


CLARKE –  – Sec State of Health was WHO?? – Jopling??

Jo Richardson was the Labour MP for Barking, yet another Wimmin’s Champ of the left who took no crap from Men but who remained silent about Gwynne, Dafydd and the associated horrors, as discussed in previous posts. Richardson died in office on 1 Feb 1994, leaving an opportunity for Miranda’s friend from Islington, Little Nell, to stand for election. Little Nell became the MP for Barking on 9 June 1994, the day that Matt Arnold, former Head of Bryn Estyn died ‘from an unidentified blood disease’.

The Beast of Bolsover as well as Two Jags was at Ruskin College when Matt taught there and Peter Howarth was his student.

Aug 1990 – after COURT CASE RE ME – Peter Morrison n Thatch

The Guardian’s obituary for Paul Dean was written by Andrew Roth and published on 2 April 2009:

Lord Dean of Harptree, who has died aged 84, was a former Commons deputy speaker and the Conservative MP for Somerset North, and then Woodspring, Avon, for 28 years. The epitome of the gentlemanly, old-fashioned Conservative – tall and slow-speaking – he held firmly to slow-motion reform of the House of Lords. In his half-dozen active years in the upper chamber, to which he was elevated in 1993, he resisted a rapid cull of hereditary peers and too wide a register of their outside interests. Although he was pro-Europe, he was very much a traditionalist, adhering to principles such as Sunday-is-sacred and capital punishment.

Apart from his term as a junior minister at the department of health and social security (1970-74), he maintained his business interests; he was a director of Charterhouse Pensions and the brewers Watney-Mann and Truman, consultant to Grand Metropolitan and Antony Gibbs Pension Services, a governor of Bupa and deputy chairman of the PR firm Roward Panton.

THE MISSING SHARES??

ANY RELATION TO WING COMMANDER IAN PANTON of Dafydd’s gang??

Dean was a religious man – he was on the governing body of the Church of Wales – but his deepest commitment was to the Conservative party. It began at school, Ellesmere College, Shropshire, and continued at Exeter College, Oxford, where he became President of the Conservative Association and the Oxford Carlton Club.

Church in Wales – Archbishop Gwilym Williams and the Gang

Ellesmere College – ??

He served with the Welsh Guards during the second world war, during which he was wounded in the leg. After the war, he abandoned his family’s farms in Cheshire and North Wales to become, in 1952, a tutor at the Swinton Conservative College in North Yorkshire, where he met his first wife, Doris Webb.

Gwilym Williams’s family were wealthy farmers in north Wales – as were the Sandbach family, the Brookes, the Mars-Jones’s – Gwynne’s era

North Yorkshire – a ring affiliated to the Gang in north Wales – Richmond?? – Peter Howarth’s student placement when he was at Ruskin was in Richmond, Yorkshire –  Leon Brittan – succeeded as the constituency MP by  The Hague

Sadie’s family – her mother and grandmother were Top Docs – were from Yorkshire,

He worked in the Research Department at Conservative Central Office from 1957 to 1964,

The notorious gay predators in that Dept

standing in a 1962 by-election in the hopeless Pontefract constituency. He then went on to succeed Sir Ted Leather as MP for Somerset North in 1964.

In most ways, Dean showed himself to be socially sensitive, favouring tax relief for the blind and larger child allowances, but backed private health and pension schemes. From the outset, he was a supporter of Edward Heath, then leader of the opposition, backing entry into the EEC and the end of resale price maintenance. In 1969, he became Heath’s deputy spokesman on social security.

After the Tories’ election victory in 1970, he was made under-secretary for social security. He was a parsimonious minister, opposing, for example, the abolition of tax on pensioners earning less than £2,000 a year. He proudly introduced the 1973 Social Security Act and attacked Barbara Castle for “vicious political vandalism” when, on Labour’s return to office the following year, she delayed implementation of parts of it.

However, his Europhilia ruled him out as a minister in Margaret Thatcher’s first administration. Instead, he became assistant deputy speaker of the Commons (1982-92). He was mentioned as a possible speaker but, because he could sound pompous, he could not match the popularity of genial Bernard Weatherill, who was elected in 1983.

In 1987, Dean became the first deputy chairman of the ways and means committee and deputy speaker. In that role, his most dramatic intervention was to give his casting vote for the status quo when the anti-abortionists failed to make it more difficult to secure late abortions for foetal abnormalities in a tied vote on an amendment on the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill.

The Gang’s poodles Dafydd Wigley and Noreen Edwards (the Chair of Gwynedd Health Authority) sat on the Warnock Committee that deliberated re that Bill. Even Mary Warnock was a stooge; the person calling the shots was Top Doc Dame Josephine Barnes, who along with her husband Ted Heath’s mate Sir Brian Warren (see ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’), had been facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring for years. See previous posts.

In 1992, Dean stood down from Woodspring (to which he had switched during boundary changes in 1983).

Alan Calaminus, the teacher who taught me at Chilton School who’s father was a clergyman who knew the molesting Rev Rigg of Bawdrip, lived in the area of Woodspring District Council. Alan Calaminus’s brother was a Detective Inspector and his nephew Paul is a senior NHS manager who has held roles at the Maudsley, as detailed in previous posts. Alan Calaminus was in touch with the Gang and was passing on info about me to them. See previous posts.

He had been knighted in 1985 and was made a privy counsellor in 1991. Though he sat on a number of committees in the Lords, he spoke rarely. He opposed Lord Nolan’s recommendation of a strict register of members’ interests and backed the retention of almost 100 hereditary peers.

Doris died in 1979, and the following year he married Peggy Parker, who died in 2002.

To return to Waterhouse’s account of the girl M who had moved from north Wales to the Pentecostal Church’s Child Care institution in Dean’s constituency in Clevedon suffering the excesses of Joan Glover:

‘M’s explanation was that she had visited Glover there in the interim and thought that Glover had changed. The move was not successful, however, and she considered that she was mentally abused by Glover with the result that she took an overdose of tablets; a week later she was moved to Park House, with which we deal next, and later to Bersham Hall until she was discharged from care.

In her oral evidence, Joan Glover accepted that she had “lost her rag” from time to time. She had usually shouted on those occasions and had sometimes slapped children but only one across the face (in the 1975 incident). In her view slapping had been permitted until 1974. Her explanation for slapping after the prohibition was that sometimes she did not know what else to do and she added that it had not happened on more than two or three occasions when she had been very stressed. She had not had as much time off as she should have had. She accepted that by 1979 her relations with some other members of staff were strained and she was shouting a lot: she was aware that things were not right, that she was not feeling well and that she was not coping.

She denied, however, ill-treating X: she said that he was not a difficult child and she did not remember ever having to discipline him. His bed wetting was not a disciplinary matter: everything was tried and eventually it just stopped suddenly. As for M, the latter had serious behavioural problems and would go into uncontrollable rages with the result that she had to undergo therapy for several months.

The bed wetting, serious behavioural problems and uncontrollable rages were highly likely to have been something to do with the excesses of Joan Glover and her colleagues. No doubt the Therapist diligently attributed it all to the Inexplicable Disturbed Mental State Of Those Turbulent Children.

See the source image

Ronnie’s insights included: ‘Our conclusion is that the staff concerns about Joan Glover’s behaviour towards the children at South Meadow were fully justified and that the account of her conduct that we have summarised, in terms of comment at the time and the evidence to the Tribunal of two complainants, gives a fair picture of the extent to which she abused children. We accept that her aspirations for the children in her care were high and that she retained strong fundamental religious beliefs but she had serious temperamental or character defects, which disabled her from carrying out her work as Officer-in-Charge in an appropriate manner.

The Social Services Department acted promptly in 1975 by issuing a written warning and it is to the credit of the residential care staff that they made their concern known in 1979.’

Those care staff remained blissfully unaware of Joan and the Dr Scholls/Affectionate Cuddles not only until that written warning but for four years afterwards as well then. Until the year that Mary Wynch was illegally imprisoned by Dafydd and Mr Thrope Walked Free From The Old Bailey. Anxieties were a little high on the part of the Gang at the time; I wonder if the bottom feeders were given a nudge by someone in a senior position who knew that if things got any worse re Joan Glover, there could well be more fingers of suspicion pointing in the direction of Dafydd and Gwynne?

Ronnie’s view: ‘But, in our judgment, there should have been closer monitoring of Glover’s performance in the intervening period. It is unlikely that there was a sudden lapse in her performance at about Easter 1979 and it is highly probable that there ought to have been intervention by the Department before then. Moreover, the response by the Department in 1979 was unsatisfactory when measured against the evidence available then and the fact of the earlier written warning. There is no persuasive evidence of any immediate improvement in Glover’s behaviour on her return from her break. On the contrary, the anxieties of the staff survived, at least between October 1979 and January 1980, although David Nicholas Evans, who was appointed Deputy Officer-in-Charge from 1 November 1980, did say in evidence that he could not think of any criticism of Glover and that he overlapped with her on duty often. In our judgment, it is regrettable that the problem caused by Glover’s behaviour was not tackled more boldly and that the situation was left to fester for another year (a significant period in a young child’s experience).’

The Chief Exec of Clwyd County Council from its establishment in 1974 until 1977 was T.M. Hadyn Rees. Hadyn Rees was not only a friend of Ronnie’s but he had been a friend of Ronnie’s dad as well. Hadyn Rees was a revered figure in north Wales and well-known for his public spirited ways. Two of Hadyn Rees’s babies were the complex that housed Mold Law Courts, which made Mold the principal legal centre in north Wales and Theatr Clwyd. Hadyn Rees’s dad worked at the old Mold Court… When Ronnie was Chairing the Waterhouse Inquiry, during the week Ronnie stayed in the accommodation that came with Mold Law Courts. At weekends he either stayed at his country house in Herefordshire or at Gray’s Inn. Ronnie’s friend and for years, senior colleague as well, William Mars-Jones, lived at Gray’s Inn.

My post ‘Heart of Darkness’ discussed how Ronnie suddenly decided to alter his retirement plans in such a way that resulted in him conducting a farewell tour of his former Circuit, the Chester and Wales Circuit and wining and dining with all of his old mates who presided over so many of the organisations that were responsible for the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, into which Ronnie would be Chairing an Inquiry from Jan 1997, not that Ronnie knew that, he thought that he had retired until he was asked to do one last favour ie. Chair the Inquiry….

See the source image

One of those with whom Ronnie hobnobbed during his farewell tour was Hadyn Rees.

Hadyn Rees was Clerk to the North Wales Police Authority, 1967-77 and served on the Mold Magistrates’ Bench from 1977, becoming Chairman in 1985. Hadyn Rees was educated at Swansea Business School and had worked as a solicitor for the old Caernarfonshire Council back in the late 1940s and 50s. Hadyn Rees did the rounds in north Wales and was at the top of Flintshire County Council before it merged with Denbighshire CC and evolved into Clwyd County Council in 1974…

Hadyn Rees also held senior roles with the Welsh Arts Council and many other public bodies.

Meet Professor Dai, big wig of Welsh Arts Council and the BBC:

See the source image

Professor Dai’s son Oily worked for the BBC when his old dad did and then became a very senior Marketing Man with Pfizer, when Pfizer was fined a great deal of money for their business practices.

See the source image

Oily knows Uncle Harry’s nephew and I suspect that Oily, or indeed Professor Dai, might have bumped into Tony Francis, what with Tony being a Top Doc who took early retirement and then completed a degree in history at Bangor University with people who knew Professor Dai, an historian.

See the source image

Has it occurred to the Windbag and Professor Dai that Prof Duncan Tanner died in the ‘care’ of Ysbyty Gwynedd after a routine, virtually risk-free cardiology procedure and soon after that Tony Francis was found dead? Then old Rhodri bit the dust! Who’s your GP Windbag? Not that it will matter, you’re so dim that you’d never know how lethal or otherwise they were.

Hadyn Rees married a Marion Beer, who I think might have been a related to the Beer family who gave rise to Dr Bill Beer, a Top Doc at the C&A Hospital…

Hadyn Rees was succeeded as Chief Exec of Clwyd County Council by Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate Mervyn Phillips, who served as Chief Exec, 1977-DATE. Mervyn was a solicitor who trained at Liverpool University and was big in the Methodist Church in north Wales. As were Ronnie’s family. Bill Beer and his wife were Nonconformist Missionaries. William Mars-Jones’s family in Denbighshire were active in the Methodist Church. Mervyn Phillips served as the Clerk to the North Wales Police Authority, DATES.

See eg. ‘Ain’t Nothing Clean, Not Even The Welsh Calvinistic Methodists’.

He didn’t mention his mates who were rather culpable re Joan Glover, but Ronnie did state: ‘We have noted also with disquiet that in February 1981 Glover was provided with a reference, in the name of the Director of Social Services, to her prospective new employers in which no explicit mention was made of her serious shortcomings as Officer-in-Charge of South Meadow.

Ronnie dealt with the events at South Meadow following the departure of Joan Glover swiftly:

1981 to 1990:.. Other relevant matters in relation to South Meadow can be dealt with quite briefly.
