The Wretched Of The Earth

When the Forces Of Oppression at Bangor University – in the form of Professor Fergus Lowe, Lyn Meadows and Stephanie Marriott  (see previous posts) – became particularly intolerable, one of my colleagues symbolically borrowed a copy of Frantz Fanon’s volume ‘The Wretched Of The Earth’ from the University library. This man’s life was indeed being made wretched by the aforementioned oppressors, but like me, he was on good terms with a few Empowered Service Users and knew that their lives were even more wretched.

There are a few ends that need to be tied up following recent posts re details of the lives of the wretched and the names of those who made their lives so wretched, so in this post I’ll cover a few such matters and people.

Previous posts eg. ‘Professor Prestigious And His Associates’ discussed how in the 1980s, Thatch was only ever persuaded to allow the public health campaign re HIV/AIDS when one of Dafydd’s umbrellas, the then Chief Medical Officer Sir Donald Acheson, explained very clearly to Thatch and her Ministers that AIDS was incurable, affected gay men in particular and that some of her Ministers and associates who were having promiscuous gay sex (eg. Peter Morrison) were going to die from this along with the rent boys if they did not change their behaviour. It was then that dear old Norman Fowler, the Secretary of State for the DHSS, 1981-87, who was also concealing the activities of Dafydd and the gang, got on board with the ‘Don’t Die Of Ignorance’ campaign and agreed to one of those leaflets being shoved through the letterbox of every household in the Britain.

Previous posts eg. ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ‘The Bodies Under Canary Wharf’ explained that the political class knew that many of the young men who died from AIDS in the 1980s and 90s were rent boys who had been forced into sex work as kids in care, often while in children’s homes in north Wales. That is why there was so much attention paid to ‘confidentiality’ and not identifying those patients when Princess Di went to visit them; those young men were witnesses to a huge scandal and them effectively dying in conditions of secrecy was just another part of the cover-up. Top Docs knew the score, as did all the Angels, counsellors and other people who worked with AIDS patients, including Top Docs Professor Michael Adler and Tony Pinching, as well as Adler’s wife Baroness Margaret Jay, who was the daughter of Jim Callaghan and was appointed as a Health Minister by Miranda in May 1997 (see post ‘Holding The Country To Ransom – Part I’).

The first NHS wards for the treatment of AIDS patients were at the Middlesex Hospital; it was to those wards that Di made her much publicised visit in 1987 to Fight The Stigma. It did not escape my notice that Gwynne the lobotomist trained at the Middlesex and enjoyed lifelong protection from the alumni network of that institution. However, I missed something obvious that, as ever, suggested that the conspiracy and mutual back-scratching may have been worse than I thought.

The Middlesex was shut down in 2005 and was subsequently demolished, but it was located just down the road from Soho. The district served by the Middlesex was Bloomsbury. It was Sir Clough Williams-Ellis’s friends from the Bloomsbury Set who were the visiting bohemians to Croesor in north Wales in the summers throughout the middle years of the 20th century who hung out with Bertrand Russell et al, some of whom made use of Gwynne and later on Dafydd to deal with awkward customers (see previous posts). Clough married Amabel Strachey, the daughter of John St Loe Strachey, the Editor of ‘The Spectator’, for which Amabel wrote (see previous posts). Amabel’s brother John – Evelyn John St Loe Strachey – was a Labour politician, serving as Minister for Food and then Secretary of State for War under Clement Attlee (see previous posts). At Oxford, John Strachey was friends with Lord Bob Boothby, who later became known for being a bisexual Tory who used rent boys and was mates with some unsavoury people, including the Krays (see previous posts). The Stracheys’ extended network spanned a whole spectrum of influential people; fascists, communists, pacifists, members of the Tory, Labour and Liberal Parties, psychoanalysts, Top Doctors, writers, artists, radicals, suffragettes etc. People tangled with them at their peril and many of the extended network spent time in the Croesor area. They weren’t at the mercy of Gwynne and Dafydd, but the people who pissed them off were, as of course were local people.

 

In 1987 ‘AIDS Britain 1987’ a film about the various Gov’t funded programmes which were being set up in the UK to combat the spread of HIV and AIDS was made; this film is now part of the London Screen Archives collection. The initiatives featured in the film included counselling, specialist hospital wards, a public education strategy, charity work and a clean needle programme for drug users. Experts in each field were interviewed about their work. The Middlesex Hospital featured, as did Professor Michael Adler, who explained how HIV is contracted and passed on, as well as how it cannot be passed on. Adler stated that a national strategy was needed and that the NHS and social services need to be aware of what was required of them. Tony Newton, Minister of State for Heath, 1986-88, explained what the Gov’t was doing in terms of public education. Alison Taylor wrote to Tony Newton in Feb 1988, describing a brutal assault that she had witnessed. Thatch then appointed Newton as Secretary of State for Social Security in 1989 and he remained in the post until 1992. Tony Newton was Lord President of the Council, 1992-97. One of the roles of Lord President of the Council is to serve as the visitor for UCNW (Bangor University). So Newton was in that post during the frantic years when the demands for a Public Inquiry into the abuse of children in north Wales became louder and louder, when the Jillings Investigation took place and when the cover-up which was the Waterhouse Inquiry was planned and launched. Throughout these years, former kids in care and psych patients were found dead constantly and five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal were killed by a firebomb (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’). Newton could be relied upon to keep quiet and not investigate any of it, that had been demonstrated after Alison wrote to him.

Someone else starring in ‘AIDS Britain 1987’ was Professor Robin Weiss, who was interviewed about how research into HIV and AIDS was progressing and in what directions it needed to progress.

Robert Anthony “Robin” Weiss was Professor of Viral Oncology at UCL and a member of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics. His research has focused on retroviruses, initially as a means of understanding T-cell leukaemia and other cancers. His breakthrough discovery was in 1971 and involved demonstrating that the retroviral genome in chickens follows the rules of Mendelian inheritance. Because HIV/AIDS only came to prominence in the west in the 1980s, Weiss, like all the other researchers who became well-known for their work on HIV, didn’t have previous experience of HIV per se, although HIV is a retrovirus.

So what was Robin Weiss doing before his work on HIV? He was the Director of the Institute of Cancer Research at the Royal Marsden Hospital no less, 1980-98. So Weiss was at the Institute of Cancer Research/Royal Marsden at the time of the research fraud perpetrated by the Institute of Cancer Research/Royal Marsden that was exposed in 1990, involving Dr Tony Francis’s former colleague Peter Macguire and which resulted in the death – presumed to be suicide – of Professor Tim McElwain (see posts ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’). When Peter Macguire, a psychiatrist from Manchester, suddenly decided to become a cancer researcher and obtained funding from the Cancer Research Campaign to do this, I was working for the Cancer Research Campaign at the University of Surrey in a team led by Professor Vincent Marks, brother of the President of the BMA Dr John Marks. See previous posts.

John Marks was in an all-out war with Ken Clarke at the time, they really loathed each other, but the priority was to keep a lid on Dafydd et al. Not only were the BMA providing Tony Francis and the other self-styled ‘BMA psychiatrists’ in north Wales with free advice in terms of how to have me framed and banged up without trial in a secure unit (see eg. posts ‘Gwlad y Menig Gwynion’ and ‘Criminals Are Getting Away With It’) but I was told by Vincent Marks et al in Surrey after a year that there was no more funding for my post to continue. It was only a few months ago that I discovered that while I was still working at Surrey, my data was given to Nicola Curtin at Newcastle-upon-Tyne University, who published it under her name without my knowledge (see previous posts). Curtin’s funding did continue – partly as a result of my work – and Curtin is now Professor Nicola Curtin. Curtin was not part of our team at Surrey nor one of our research partners and I had never heard of her until I found that paper with my name on it along with hers, some months ago.

In the 1970s, Robin Weiss worked for the Imperial Cancer Research Fund. The ICRF were also involved with the research fraud starring Peter Macguire which ended in the death of Tim McElwain.

Readers might also remember that other laughable bit of cancer research conducted by Dafydd’s mates at Ysbyty Gwynedd and UCNW and published in the ‘British Journal of Cancer’ in Dec 1990, which was hailed as a scientific first in the world’s media but had to be quietly forgotten about days later, when it was pointed out that the research was flawed (see post ‘They Think It’s All Over – It Is Now’). Deeply flawed – it was based on a control sample of three and one of the controls did not have the illness under investigation. It is worth noting here that the published paper stated that it had originally been submitted to the journal in 1988 but was returned for redrafting. As I explained in previous posts, Dafydd’s gang were in desperate need of good PR in 1987-88, so it is quite possible that they did decide to construct themselves as World Leading Cancer Researchers at that time. However, Dec 1990 was a very busy month for Dafydd and the gang. I had just about been forced out of my job at St George’s Hospital Medical School – I now know as a result of me refusing to keep quiet about Dafydd et al – and in Dec 1990 Drs Tony and Sadie Francis tried to have me imprisoned on the basis of their perjury.

That article in the ‘British Journal of Cancer’ appeared at a very convenient time for Dafydd and the paedophile gang. Everyone involved was so dishonest that it wouldn’t be beyond probability if that paper had not been drafted in 1988 at all, but had been a quick effort timed to appear when I was marched off to the slammer and if I protested it would then have been my word against the word of World Leading Cancer Researchers. That would certainly explain why such a shoddy effort at fabricating research appeared to have escaped the attention of the peer reviewers who ‘advised on the redrafting’.

It was around 1990 that fireworks began to go off in the School of Social Sciences as well, which resulted in a hate campaign against a senior sociologist and an article in ‘The Guardian’ falsely accusing him of discriminating against Welsh people when making appointing staff (see previous posts eg. ‘Badlands’). The whole thing was cooked up by Dafydd’s gang as a distraction in the wake of the North Wales Police beginning their investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire.

 

Who was Editor-in-Chief of the British Journal of Cancer until 2005? Robin Weiss. His successor, A. L. Harris, stated that Weiss showed “clear vision in developing the British Journal of Cancer into [a] multidisciplinary journal with a focus on research that aims to deliver benefits to cancer patients.” Presumably by publishing crap written by the colleagues of a gang of traffickers. Who is A.L. Harris? None other than Professor Adrian Harris of Oxford University, who was mates with Vincent Marks et al at Surrey and unlike Nicola Curtin, was one of the partners on the project that I was working on (see previous posts).

The ‘British Journal of Cancer’ might well have a vested interest in publishing crap written by people who have been involved in research frauds funded by the Cancer Research Campaign; the journal was owned by the CRC (now known as CR UK).

For details of more fraudulent research conducted by people funded by/associated with the CRC and CR UK, see previous posts eg. ‘Oh Lordy, It’s CR UK’.

San and Tray and Professor Robin Weiss:

 

A few Interesting Facts:

My immediate boss at Surrey, Dr Wynne Aherne, came from the Carmarthen area and in 1988 still had friends and family there. One of my colleagues at Surrey, Wynne’s friend, was Anthea Hardcastle, who was originally Anthea Jones and came from Cricieth. Anthea also had friends and family still in north Wales and two of her closest friends was at that time was the Principal Biochemist at Ysbyty Gwynedd and his wife 

Tony Francis knew the Windbag, who in 1988 still had delusions that he was going to be the next PM, despite this scene in June 1987:

  • Former British PM Margaret Thatcher dies at 87 | Globalnews.ca
  • File:UK General Election, 1987.svg - Wikipedia

 

Although traditionally there were plenty of Tory Top Doctors, by 1988 the Top Docs generally and of course the BMA in particular had fallen out with the Tories big time (Ken Clarke believed that John Marks was ‘very left wing’), as a result of Thatcher’s contempt and hostility towards the professions and even more saliently because of the new management structure which Thatch was imposing on the NHS. In the late 1980s, Top Doctors were gravitating towards the SDP – Dr Death, who personally knew some of the facilitators of the trafficking ring in north Wales, was the big pulling factor – or, particularly in Wales, the Labour Party. I never saw much evidence of any great commitment to socialism on the part of the majority of Top Doctors, but they did know that the Windbag would do whatever they told him, in the way that the BMA love Mark Drakeford because he takes orders from Top Doctors and gives them money when they ask for it. A case of a well-heeled Oliver (Brooke) who wants some more. The Labour Party has always enjoyed support from the Socialist Health Association and the Top Doctors who have doubled up as Labour MPs are usually members of this organisation.

Could the Windbag let us know if he has any info about this mass outbreak of research fraud in the late 1980s/1990 on the part of associates of Dafydd and the gang who also had links with people who worked with me?

 

Robin Weiss is now described as a molecular biologist, but his first degree was in Zoology from UCL in 1961 and then he was awarded his PhD in 1969. So Weiss could well have known some of the Zoologists at, or associated with, UCNW during the years that Dafydd’s gang ran UCNW.

In the 1970s, Weiss spent some time working with Peter K Vogt in the USA. Vogt discovered oncogenes that play important roles in human cancers and has has received numerous awards, including the Bristol-Myers Squibb Award (1989), the Charles S. Mott Prize (1991), the Szent-Gyorgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research (2010), the Pezcoller Foundation-AACR International Award for Cancer Research (2013), the IHV Lifetime Achievement Award for Scientific Contributions (2016) and the AICF Prize for Scientific Excellence in Medicine (2017). Vogt has been elected to several academies, including the National Academy of Sciences USA, the American Philosophical Society, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the German National Academy of Arts and Sciences Leopoldina and the American Academy of Microbiology. Vogt has served on several scientific advisory and editorial boards, e.g., the National Foundation for Cancer Research and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, USA (since 2000). 

 

In 1977, Robin Weiss was elected a member of the European Molecular Biology Organisation. In 1997, the year that the Waterhouse Inquiry began, Weiss became a Fellow of the Royal Society. Robin Weiss returned to work at UCL in 1999 and in the same year became an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. In November 2001, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences awarded Weiss the M. W. Beijerinck Prize for Virology, noting especially his work on retroviruses. In the same year, Weiss delivered the Leeuwenhoek lecture. Weiss was elected to the American Philosophical Society in 2018.

Professor Weiss has pioneered aspects of our understanding of HIV and AIDS, particularly on the identification of CD4 as the HIV receptor and on the analysis of neutralizing antibodies. He has also conducted research on AIDS-associated malignancies and on pig viruses in relation to xenotransplantation. He has been President of the British Association for Cancer Research and he is currently President of the Society for General Microbiology.

In 2007 Professor Weiss was awarded the prestigious Ernst Chain Award by Imperial College, in recognition of his pioneering work on HIV/AIDS. Robin Weiss is currently leading a $25 million international research consortium, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, in HIV vaccine discovery.

An interview with Robin Weiss which shed further light on his greatness can be found on the i-Sense EPSRC IRC Early-Warning Sensing Systems for Infectious Disease website. i-Sense started in October 2013 as a five-year, £11 million Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration (IRC), funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). i-Sense describes its objective as ‘to build a new generation of digital sensing systems to identify and prevent outbreaks of infectious disease and antimicrobial resistance, much earlier than ever before. Early detection and accurate diagnosis is key to helping patients gain faster access to care and protecting populations from disease. Our mission strongly aligns to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and the Global Challenge Research Fund. We work in partnership with end users in low and middle-income countries, to build innovative digital technologies that meet their needs.’

The i-Sense website states that:

‘Professor Robin Weiss is a leading researcher whose discoveries transformed our understanding of HIV during its early years in the 1980s. This work paved the way for changes in HIV testing and treatment that saved lives. Robin has been a key collaborator and mentor of i-sense researchers working on the development of HIV diagnostics. During this interview, Robin shares with us his remarkable career spanning 50 years; working on various retroviruses before applying his vast knowledge to HIV, and how his research is now being applied across several pathogenic infectious diseases like Ebola. Robin reminds us how far we’ve come, but also the obstacles we still face, in reaching the ultimate goal of eradicating HIV and AIDS.’

According to Robin: ‘I have spent almost all of my research career working with retroviruses, particularly HIV. For the first 18 years, I was working with retroviruses that cause cancer in chickens, and then in 1980, the first human retrovirus was discovered by Robert Gallo in the US, which causes a form of leukaemia. It was then that I switched to human retroviruses and a few years later HIV was discovered.

At the time of the HIV discovery, I was Director of the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) and we were one of the few labs in the UK with genuine expertise in retroviruses. We dived right in, were able to obtain the virus in 1984, and found we could grow it to high titre. With Richard Tedder, clinical virologist at UCL, we developed the first really good diagnostic test. This test detected antibodies produced by the body in reaction to the virus. It was based on a radio-immunoassay and was converted into the then novel ELISA method. The test went into blood donor screening in 1985, across most countries in the British Commonwealth.

Radioimmunoassay was the specialism of the team led by Vincent Marks at the University of Surrey. Wynne Aherne in particular developed radio-immunoassays for many purposes; my job at Surrey was developing a radioimmunoassay. I don’t know Robin Weiss, but I do remember a woman who worked in Vincent Marks’s team in 1988 who was working on HIV. Because Thatcher’s Gov’t – and the Top Docs – were in such a panic over HIV/AIDS and it was known that it was going to devastate some African nations, Thatch’s Gov’t had ordered everyone working on HIV to co-ordinate and work WITH each other, not AGAINST each other, which is what so often happens in science. The woman at Surrey used to rave about how great it was that funding was secure and that people therefore shared their results with each other and that collaboration was the order of the day. The only dissenter was an Australian scientists who pissed everyone off by claiming that HIV did not cause AIDS and he offered to inject himself with HIV to demonstrate this.

Robin Weiss will have known that researcher at Surrey and although collaboration was allegedly the order of the day, because Weiss was the senior researcher, he will have been credited with being the Man Who Discovered Things. So Weiss knew Vincent Marks et al who, at least by 1988, were concealing the crimes of Dafydd et al in north Wales…

The i-Sense interview with Weiss continues:

also in 1985 – You made an even bigger scientific discovery that same year, one that many feel is one of the most significant breakthroughs in our understanding of HIV. Can you tell us a little more about it?

Yes, we identified the cell surface receptor that HIV uses to dock onto human cells, known as CD4. I think that’s what I’m best known for. In 1986, we published a paper reporting that while the CD4 antigen is a component of the HIV receptor, it was not sufficient by itself for the virus to enter cells; it needed an extra unknown factor. It took another 10 years before the second factor was identified as a chemokine co-receptor was discovered by Ed Berger at NIH. With hindsight, our predictions were quite smart!’

In 1986, I was still a postgrad at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School/Hammersmith Hospital; Dafydd et al were busy sticking the knife into me via their contacts there, but I didn’t realise that at the time. I did however find out about a great deal of wrongdoing and questionable research (see posts eg. ‘A Cause Close To Our Hearts’ and ‘I Don’t Believe It!’). So whatever Weiss published in 1986 won’t have been anything to do with me being a witness to Dafydd et al’s crimes. But Weiss didn’t actually set the world on fire in 1986; Weiss claims to have PREDICTED something that somebody else discovered 10 years later; then claims the credit for being Mystic Meg. Weiss and the bodies for which he was working and which funded him had in the meantime been exposed as frauds and liars. A member of the team had even committed suicide – at least that’s what his death had been attributed to – as a result of the disgrace. Can we believe anything that was said by Weiss et al, especially predictions of discoveries made by other people ten years later? It’s not as if anyone was going to contradict Weiss over these claims; he was riding high by then, had a Chair at UCL and Waterhouse was on the horizon, no-one was going to rock that boat, no matter how pissed off with him they might have been. Up in north Wales, Dafydd, Tony Francis et al were in the final stages of yet another more plan to fit me up and lock me up.

 

A pioneering breakthrough and very ahead of its time! How was it you came to discover this?

Our retrovirus lab collaborated with a very good immunology lab at UCL led by Peter Beverley and he had all the monoclonal antibodies known in 1984 to T-cell surface antigens that we needed. We screened all 160 of them all blind and picked out 14 that blocked HIV infection.  When we deciphered the code each of those 14 was an anti-CD4 antibody –  a clear-cut result!

What was it like in the early days of HIV research?

It was exciting and a little bit frightening! We didn’t know how to handle this virus in the lab. Every six weeks we would screen everyone in the lab with our provisional diagnostic test as we didn’t want to become infected or give it to our partners; it was always a nervous day when the results came out. We couldn’t send it off or receive results anonymously – there were only five of us and we were the only ones with the test.’

I remember it well. No-one knew anything about HIV, everyone was equally in the dark and many researchers refused to work with the virus such was the anxiety. So Weiss and his four colleagues were the only ones who knew what was going on in their lab…

‘Yet scientifically it was exciting. The CD4 discovery came quickly, the following year we published on neutralising antibodies (ones that block infection) and proved that although people living with HIV showed high levels of antibodies, they only have very low levels of protective antibodies, which was very different to other human retroviruses we knew about. This still remains a major challenge in vaccine development.

There was also a lot of fear and we had a role in trying to inform behavioural understanding. As some of the only spokespeople in the UK for HIV, we received a lot of queries.’ 

Told you so. Robin Weiss was the word of God. There was no-one to question him or his results.

‘My most recent work before my lab closed a few years ago was applying all the work I had learned about HIV envelopes to other viruses: Rabies, SARS, H5N1 influenza, and two of my former postdocs have done this with Ebola. It is useful for high throughput and because the pseudotypes themselves do not require high containment.’

Weiss could churn them out…

‘This might be quite difficult to pin down, but what for you has been your greatest accomplishment?

For me, my biggest discovery was actually one I made when I was still a PhD student at UCL, when I was able to deduce that some retroviruses are inherited in as viral genomes integrated into host chromosomal DNA. Now we know that ~8% of the human genome derives from ‘fossil’ retroviruses. I was the first to see this and it was my first ever virus paper published in 1967, so last year we celebrated 50 years since this discovery! Working together with a chicken geneticist, Jim Payne, we later proved through crosses between two breeds of chicken that the endogenous retroviruses are inherited as individual Mendelian loci.’

So for some reason Weiss is not credited with earth-shattering breakthroughs with HIV.

 

Robin Weiss’s family show the same pattern of inheritance as Colin Blakemore offspring in that Weiss’s children have inherited the gene for being Famous Scientists as well.

‘For example, during the Ebola epidemic my daughter, who is an epidemiologist at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, went to Sierra Leone where people were doing contact tracing with bits of paper to try and track who was likely to develop the virus. She went there and converted this process to mobile phones’.

That will be the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine who offered me a place to do an MSc in Medical Microbiology which was suddenly, inexplicably and unlawfully withdrawn after Dr D.G.E. Wood found out about the offer. Wood had contacts at the LSHTM. See previous posts. It was the withdrawal of the place at the LSHTM that was the reason why I did the MSc at Hammersmith instead. The traffickers of north Wales didn’t know that I had that place, so they couldn’t throw a spanner in the works until they found out that I was actually on the course. So while I was on the course, Dafydd had me unlawfully arrested and imprisoned.

 

Robin Weiss is a devoted dad and granddad:

‘Without a doubt, my most rewarding role has been acting as a mentor to young scientists. I am very proud of my scientific children and grandchildren, so to speak. To see young scientists come up and do well is a great feeling.’

Particularly when they’re members of your own family Robin!

Robin continues:

‘I was Director of the Institute of Cancer Research in London, with 600+ employees for 10 years. I think I did a pretty good job, so that is also satisfying.’

600+ employees. Involved in research fraud. Their careers all continued in spite of the 1990 scandal which led to the death of Tim McElwain. Terrifying isn’t it.

The scandal didn’t hold Robin back:

Since retiring from laboratory research, I’ve served on international advisory committees, such as the chairing the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative and being a founder member on the Board of the new Africa Health Research Institute (AHRI). While I still possess my mental marbles it’s rewarding to be able to offer advice and expertise on research and management, especially in Africa, where TB and HIV epidemics are most alarming. Currently, I advise the Indian HIV Translational Antibody Research laboratory and I’m a member of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics. Not least, I enjoy being affiliated to i-Sense owing to my expertise on llama single-chain antibodies, sometimes called nanobodies.’

Ralph Oxley, one of the lecturers in the Dept of Plant Biology at UCNW who was a colleague of D.G.E. Wood’s wife Chris Wood and who was married to Isobel Hargreaves, a Gwynedd social worker who worked with Dafydd’s gang, kept llamas. This lot are so bloody incestuous that I wouldn’t be surprised if Ralph and Isobel supplied the llamas for Weiss’s research. Ralph and Isobel kept their llamas at their home in Tregarth which also doubled up as a tourist attraction called ‘The Joys of Life’. There were lots of fascinating anecdotes circulating about life chez Oxley. On one occasion Isobel got so angry when the alarm clock woke her up that she threw it through the window. The Oxleys also became famous for having their electricity disconnected because they didn’t pay the bill and the llamas caused much complaint because they spat at people. None of these matters constituted serious offences and I take a liberal view of such chaos, but had one of Isobel’s Empowered Service User clients (many of whom were destitute) been the subject of such tales, it would have been documented everywhere that they were ‘chaotic and personality disordered’. Ralph and Isobel however, being in receipt of two salaries which at the time made them affluent by Gwynedd standards, were just pleasantly eccentric.

The Oxleys eventually moved to Menai Bridge and Ralph died of a heart attack some years ago. I presume that this was not yet another suspicious death, although Ralph was Someone Who Knew who pegged out just as Operational Pallial was launched and when it was clear that a Review of the Waterhouse Inquiry would be taking place. Everyone was very sad because the Oxleys were ready for a glorious retirement, having purchased a castle in Spain which they were renovating.

Incredible isn’t it. Everyone who worked with that gang did really, really well for themselves even in the face of extreme fuckwittery. Which for Ralph began when he was young. The reason that Ralph didn’t have a PhD was because he left his thesis on a bus before the viva and he didn’t have a second copy. Not that it ever held him back…

 

The i-Sense website is emblazoned with the logos of the i-Sense partnership: EPSRC; UCL; Imperial College; London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine; Newcastle University; University of Surrey; and Public Health England. That’s the Public Health England which have just persuaded Theresa May’s Gov’t to add folic acid to all the flour for consumption in the UK on the basis of some not overwhelmingly convincing evidence (see comments following my post ‘Slaves, Perfect Slaves’).

I am not the only person who is less than convinced by the claims of Robin Weiss. There is an extensive account available on the web, denouncing Weiss as ‘Professor of Virology, Doctor of Spin’, which is ‘Edward Hooper’s response to Robin Weiss’s “Concluding remarks” at the 2001 Lincei conference on “Origin of HIV and Emerging Persistent Viruses”. It is explained that ‘This article is part of a collection of material on Polio vaccines and the origins of AIDS which in turn is part of Brian Martin’s website on suppression of dissent’ and ‘In his concluding speech at the Lincei conference of September 2001, later published under the title ‘Emerging Persistent Infections: Family Heirlooms and New Acquisitions’ [Weiss, 2003], Professor Robin Weiss devoted a section to the origins of AIDS debate. However, like his other interventions in this debate at the Royal Society conference on “Origins of HIV and the AIDS epidemic” and in the pages of Nature, this paper contained many observations that were flawed, misleading, or simply untrue.’

After this introduction, there follows a complete destruction of some of Robin Weiss’s work.

 

Robin Weiss mentions in his interview that two of his colleagues who were part of the Story Of HIV were Richard Tedder and Peter Beverly.

Richard Tedder was Head of the Department of Virology at the UCL Medical School and he now works as virologist at Public Health England.

Richard Tedder is the youngest son of Marshal of the Royal Air Force, Lord Arthur Tedder.

Arthur Tedder was a pilot and squadron commander in the Royal Flying Corps in WWI and he went on to serve as a senior officer in the RAF during the inter-war years when he served in Turkey, Great Britain and the Far East.

At the outbreak of WWII in 1939, Tedder’s department was transferred to the newly created Ministry of Aircraft Production, but Tedder was unable to form a good working relationship with the Minister, Lord Beaverbrook and consequently with PM Churchill; on 29 November 1940, Tedder became Deputy Air Officer Commanding in Chief, RAF Middle East Command with the acting rank of Air Marshal. Tedder directed air operations in the Mediterranean and North Africa, including the evacuation of Crete and Operation Crusader in North Africa. His bombing tactics became known as the “Tedder Carpet”. Later in the war Tedder took command of Mediterranean Air Command and in that role was closely involved in the planning of the Allied invasion of Sicily and then the Allied invasion of Italy. When Operation Overlord  – the invasion of France -came to be planned, Tedder was appointed Deputy Supreme Commander at Supreme HQ Allied Expeditionary Force under General Eisenhower.

However Tedder developed an antipathy towards the British General Montgomery and during the Battle of Normandy and later, he was a critic of Montgomery’s performance and advocated Montgomery’s removal from command. In the last year of the war, Tedder was sent to the Soviet Union to seek assistance as the Western Front came under pressure during the Battle of the Bulge. When the unconditional surrender of the Germans came in May 1945 Tedder signed on behalf of General Eisenhower. He was promoted to the substantive rank of Air Chief Marshal on 6 June 1945. Tedder was awarded the Soviet Order of Kutuzov (1st class) on 28 August 1945 and promoted to Marshal of the Royal Air Force on 12 September 1945.

I was about 10 yrs old when I realised that parts of the history of WWII were politely not discussed any longer. I discovered this when I read an old book for children that I found in my grandpa’s house called ‘The Empire Youth Annual’ which had been published after WWII to ‘celebrate victory’; grandpa had purchased a copy for my father and uncle. There were a series of photos inside of ‘The Heroes Who Helped Us Win The War’, one photo of which was of course of Stalin. Who was a very popular man in Britain immediately after WWII.

Tedder took over from as Chief of the Air Staff on 1 January 1946. In that role he advocated increased recruiting in the face of many airmen leaving the service, doubled the size of Fighter Command and implemented arrangements for the Berlin Airlift in 1948.
Tedder was granted a peerage as Baron Tedder of Glenguin on 8 February 1946 and received the American Distinguished Service Medal on 14 June 1946. He become Chairman, British Joint Services Mission in Washington in January 1950 before retiring in May 1951. In 1951 Tedder accepted an invitation to Chair the Royal Commission on University Education in Dundee which ultimately led to the creation of the Queen’s College Dundee as a college of the University of St Andrews. Tedder’s son John, Richard’s brother, would later be a Professor at both the University of Dundee (as Queen’s College eventually became) and at St Andrews.
Dafydd’s mate/umbrella/partner-in-crime Professor Robert Bluglass (see previous posts) studied medicine at St Andrews, remained part of its alumni network and will have known Prof – later Lord – John Tedder and probably knew the other Tedders as well, Bluglass being someone who shamelessly ingratiated himself to useful people.

Lord Arthur Tedder served as Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, 1950-67. His election to that office was after a huge scrap and much bad feeling. Tedder was considered to be the ‘establishment candidate’ and a group of others entitled to vote – including Bertrand Russell, R.A.B. Butler, E.M. Forster and Lord Louis Mountbatten – supported the name put forward by another group of dons, Pandit Nehru, then India’s PM. The atmosphere became so unpleasant that eventually Nehru asked to be nominated. In the end, just under 200 people voted, during drizzling rain. After half an hour of voting, the Senior Proctor announced that Tedder had been duly elected, without giving any figures. Who knows, around the back of the sheds there could have been a litter bin with the contents smouldering away…

Lord Tedder also served as Chairman of the Standard Motor Company, 1954-60 and as Vice-Chairman of the Board of Governors of the BBC.

 

Arthur Tedder’s seniority and activities during WWII meant that he undoubtedly knew about the shenanigans in High Places, including Royal Places, described in my post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’. Tedder would also have known people like Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, who was also party to those shenanigans and who’s wife Lady Juliet and son William spent the rest of their careers in MIND – and in William’s case as Chief Exec of the Mental Health Act Commission as well – concealing those shenanigans and on into the next generation re Those Who Knew ie. Dafydd et al. The fact that Tedder fell out with people like Churchill and Montgomery and lived to fight another day and pick up a peerage as well suggests that he was wielding a great deal of power over the highest levels of Gov’t and the Military for some reason…

No wonder Cambridge University had to ensure that Tedder became Chancellor.

Arthur Tedder died in 1967. So he was around long enough to help Dafydd early in his career as well as Gwynne the lobotomist. After that of course Arthur Tedder’s sons were there to keep the flag flying…

 

One of the best ever cartoon strips in ‘Private Eye’ was ‘Battle for Britain’, part of their ‘War Picture Library’ collection. It was a satirical presentation of the struggles of the Labour Party opposition led by the Windbag against the Tory Gov’t led by Thatch.

 

In a tank Herr Thatchler leads the charge; Jock Steel and Doc “Killer” Owen are helplessly entrenched; and “Fatty” Heffer looks cynically on as “Taffy” Kinnock leads the retreat.

 

 

Arthur Tedder’s youngest son Richard Tedder was educated at Dauntsey’s School, Cambridge University and the Middlesex Hospital. Tedder was Research Assistant to Professor Richard Harrison at the London Hospital Medical School and then worked with Dr J. D. H. Slater at the Middlesex Hospital, 1973-74. Following that, Tedder worked with Sir Anthony Grabham at Kettering General Hospital for a year. Tony Grabham was one of the Top Doctors leaders whom Ken Clarke did battle with and loathed when Clarke was in the DoH. Well Ken, Brown and I and a few others had evidence which could have jailed some of the BMA bastards but you were prioritising Sir Peter Morrison’s career and liberty weren’t you.

Grabham was a surgeon and a British Army officer, who was active in medical politics. He was Chairman of the BMA in the late 1970s to early 1980s and was a member of the GMC for twenty years.

Grabham was born in 1930 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and his father was a police inspector. Born into the heart of those who concealed the longstanding abuse gang in the north east who had strong links with Dafydd et al by the late 1960s then…

Grabham qualified from the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, so he will have known Dafydd’s other big mate, the Bastard of Newcastle, Lord John Walton, who also cluttered up the BMA and GMC during the 1980s (see previous posts).

In 1954, Grabham served with the RAMC, 1954-56 and was then transferred to the TA. He ended his military service in 1957. Grabham wrote on medico-politics for the BMJ.  

Grabham was given a K in the New Years Honours of 1988. That will have been some sort of reward for keeping the lid on the heap of dung which was Dafydd et al in north Wales; in 1988, Dafydd and Tony Francis’s mates were in the middle of those research frauds with the CRC and ICRF…

Grabham’s 2015 obituary – yes, he was here until recently, nailing lids firmly shut – in the Indie told us a few interesting things:

Frustrated at the BMA’s poor performance, Grabham decided to do something about it. He was elected Chairman of the Central Committee for Hospital Medical Services in 1975, the Council of the BMA in 1979 and the Joint Consultants Committee (JCC) in 1984. The JCC is made up of representatives of the BMA and the Medical Royal Colleges and negotiates with the Government on all hospital matters, except pay and terms and conditions of service. The committee had always been chaired by someone from the royal colleges; Grabham was the first BMA person to fill the role.’

The JCC also appointed the ‘Independent’ Top Doctors who Chaired Professional Reviews in the wake of serious NHS complaints. It was the JCC who appointed Dafydd’s mate Bluglass and the also fully-on-board-with Dafydd Dr Colin Berry as ‘Independent’ opinions to investigate my complaint about Dafydd et al in 1989 (see post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’). Thanks Grabham!

 

A major highlight of his career came in 1975. Harold Wilson’s government published a consultative document on the separation of private practice from the NHS. The BMA described this as “perhaps the greatest threat to the independence of the medical profession since the controversy associated with the introduction of the NHS 30 years ago.”

But their hearts lie with the NHS!

Grabham helped to put together an alliance of the BMA and 15 other medical and dental organisations. They hired Lord Goodman, who arranged a meeting with the Prime Minister.

Lord Arnold Goodman was Harold Wilson’s solicitor. Goodman was widely suspected of being a crook. Lord Goodman represented Jeremy Thorpe for the first part of Thorpe’s case when Thorpe was charged with incitement to murder Norman Scott (see previous posts). So Grabham went straight to the top for help to fight his corner then.

Lord Goodman advised that although Grabham was the junior member of the alliance only he should speak at the meeting. A compromise, known as the Goodman proposals, was reached: private beds would not be phased out of NHS hospitals where there were no adequate private facilities close by. Threatened sanctions and industrial action were averted.

Barbara Castle said that negotiating with Grabham was like being “shot at with silver bullets” and that, although he was greedy and arrogant, he was “the best negotiator I have ever dealt with and a huge force in committee meetings.” In her diary she wrote. “Grabham made all the running. He is by far the ablest (and toughest) negotiator they have got.”

Babs meant that Grabham had the shit on all of them and made it clear that he would use it. Brave Battling Babs the Flame Haired Fearless Socialist didn’t grab Grabham by the knackers and say ‘do your jobs you callous pompous bastards’ because there was that little matter of George Thomas… and Greville… and so many more… And of course Babs Who Hated Private Medicine had Gone Private herself for her fertility treatment and what would have happened to Babs’s credibility if anyone had found out about that?

When they sat next to each other at a dinner 10 years later she said, “You’re the Tony Grabham?” When he agreed that he was, she retorted, “You were a bugger.”

I’d have kneed him in the groin so hard that he’d have needed the assistance of his colleagues.

Barbara Castle was not the only minister to cross swords with Grabham. When the Conservative government planned to radically reform the NHS in 1990 some members of the House of Lords feared the reforms might harm patient care. So the Health Secretary, Kenneth Clarke, set up the Clinical Standards Advisory Group to explore alternatives, but he specified that the group should not include the BMA, particularly the JCC chairman, whom he regarded as “one of the cleverest and most difficult negotiator he had ever come across.” But the President of the Royal College of Surgeons, Sir Terence English, refused to take part unless the BMA was involved.’

It just goes on and on doesn’t it. Stupid vain politicians who are so compromised that they are repeatedly blackmailed by greedy equally compromised Top Doctors in a battle of who blinks first. The politicians know what the ultimate manoeuvre will be: a Top Doctors’ strike and in the events of the first patient to die, the Gov’t will fall. So a criminal gang ran north Wales unhindered.

A second highlight came in 1979 when Grabham was persuaded by leading general practitioners to stand as chairman of the BMA council against the incumbent, James Cameron, another general practitioner. He won at a time when the membership of the association had fallen to about 50 per cent of British doctors.’

Even the other Top Doctors were sick of the grandiose old masons who were running medicine and bullying the junior doctors into the ground. In 1978, Dafydd Wigley had asked Shirl, Callaghan’s Education Secretary, to hold a Public Inquiry into Sir Charles Evans’s management of UCNW, such was the havoc. There was no Inquiry, which I think was just as well for Dafydd Wigley’s sake actually, because everyone knew what the problem was: Dr Dafydd Alun Jones and the gang, whom no-one would reign in. See previous posts eg. ‘Slaves, Perfect Slaves’. In 1979, Dafydd had Mary Wynch unlawfully arrested and imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre and then in Denbigh. Grabham said and did nothing. He just took over the BMA.

Under his leadership the BMA introduced regional services and industrial relations officers to help doctors in their disputes with employers. Membership increased to 75-80 per cent of doctors, and the largest increase in membership of the association came while Grabham was council chairman.

So the decent Top Docs who were becoming disillusioned and concerned were sunk and outnumbered by the greedy bastards encouraged by Grabham.

He illustrated his financial acumen by starting BMA Services, which helped members with their financial affairs. This tied in members, who lost the services if they resigned. BMA Services was eventually sold for £500m. He was a business leader manqué.

But our hearts are with the NHS! All we are concerned about is patient care… Ooh I was a young doctor before the advent of the NHS and I remember Typhoid Mary well… And Florence Nightingale… Do you know my nephew Ed, he wants to be PM…

Grabham was a member of the General Medical Council for 20 years, running twice unsuccessfully for President.

So Grabham was one of those batting all the complaints about Dafydd re sexual impropriety, illegal imprisonment and patient deaths into the long grass. An even bigger bastard will have been elected President.

In 1993 he became Chairman of the journal committee of the BMJ Publishing Group. Thanks in part to his business knowledge the group’s turnover rose from £12m in 1991 to £55m in 2004.

But our hearts are with the NHS! (shurely shome mistake – Ed)

In 2002 he was elected president of the BMA. In his presidential address he said that he was “a child of the NHS”, but criticised the service’s chronic underfunding.

I told you – Typhoid Mary, Florence etc etc, he remembered it well. The only problem all those centuries later was that the Top Docs didn’t have enough money, despite those figures quoted in previous paragraphs. In 2002, Miranda was PM and Miranda was known for throwing billions at the Top Doctors in return for complete suppression of whistleblowers eg. Mid-Staffs, North Wales…

He said that a third of the NHS was of the highest quality, a third reasonably good, and a third verging on Third World medicine.

Thanks to Dafydd et al receiving complete protection from Tony Grabham and his mates…

Although he knew that it was against BMA policy he suggested looking at other healthcare systems rather than relying on a tax-based healthcare system.

But our hearts are in the NHS!

Grabham loved foreign travel, particularly to Egypt and the Caribbean. He was interested in antiques and enjoyed good food.

Somehow I thought that he would. Empowered Service Users lived rough, even some in Bethesda, let alone in big metropolitan centres.

Some colleagues and opponents found him arrogant and ruthless,

Never???

but he was always polite and dignified.

So was Bluglass actually, but just look at what he was doing…

He and his wife, Pam, who was a staunch supporter throughout his medical and political careers, were kind and thoughtful.

Bless!

Their first child, Sarah, who has Down’s Syndrome, always came first when they were making travel or social arrangements.

Yes, Grabham will have looked after his own. While thousands of other Down’s syndrome people were systematically neglected by the NHS, resulting in them having an average life-span some 25 years shorter than other people. In Bryn-y-Neuadd, Gwynedd, people like Grabham’s daughter were Helped To Explore Their Sexual Needs and Supported In Their Sexual Relationships by Dafydd’s colleagues…

‘Even after he developed spindle cell sarcoma last year they found time to send me flowers after I had had an operation.’

Grabham bothered to sent flowers to the writer of this obituary (Linda Beecham) because she was worth knowing. I’d like to have seen the details of his flowers orders; I can predict who will have been on the receiving end of those flowers.

 

Now here’s a few extracts from Grabham’s Torygraph obit:

‘The Association was then at a low ebb, almost moribund in the view of some doctors. Its image was still bruised by its opposition to the introduction of the NHS, and many doctors saw its only priority as increasing the pay of GPs. One senior physician was heard to remark: “The BMA is just about one four letter word: CASH.” As a result only about half of doctors belonged to the organisation and hospital doctors were obviously discontented. The Association’s problems were compounded by demoralised staff and a lacklustre team of chief officers.

Then, in 1979, the exception to this, Jim Cameron, the chairman of the BMA Council and a popular and successful GP negotiator, reneged on a promise to serve for only three years despite the fact that, given his age (74) and his preoccupation with general practice, many regarded him as unfit to continue. In a dramatic turn of events some GPs lobbied Grabham to oppose him and he was overwhelmingly successful in the subsequent election.

Fortunately Grabham’s start as chairman coincided with the election of new chief officer colleagues of a different calibre. The new-look Association began by concentrating on serving the whole of the profession as well as taking a public stance on scientific and ethical questions. As a result the membership of the BMA reached its highest level ever under Grabham’s chairmanship, while its image was polished by a revamped public relations department.

Some of the increase in membership may have reflected his introduction of BMA Services, an attractive scheme of benefits for members which Grabham copied from Canada. He became its director, as he did of Private Patients Plan, which the BMA adopted two years later.

Grabham retired from the BMA chairmanship in 1984 but his experience as a negotiator continued to serve him well in the final phase of his career. This included a year as president of the BMA and the chairmanship, from 1995, of the British Medical Journal Group, masterminding its transition into an independent body, though linked to the BMA. Its new status freed the BMJ of the need to report the humdrum detail of BMA activities and allowed it to enhance its reputation as a professional journal of international importance. The group itself developed electronic publication and expanded its range of specialty journals, with both financial turnover and profitability increasing to levels that justified Grabham’s hands-on approach.

Grabham’s devotion to his patients and his profession meant that he neglected to develop other interests, preferring instead to go for long holidays in the sun and buying bibelots after prolonged bargaining which could verge on the embarrassing. He always carried a hand lens to detect flaws with which he cajoled many a jeweller to slash the asking price .

He was a private man whose immediate courtesy and charm concealed the ambition and even ruthlessness in some of his political and business dealings. But his real nature came out in his deep devotion to his family.

 

A few extracts from the BMJ’s obit to shed yet more light on this misunderstood Top Doctor who was all heart:

Barbara Castle, who was secretary of state for health, was proposing to phase out private practice from NHS hospitals and change the consultant contract to favour full timers over part timers. Consultants opposed this strongly as they felt it betrayed the contract they’d agreed with Aneurin Bevan at the start of the NHS.

At the time Grabham was the chair of the Central Committee for Hospital Medical Services (CCHMS, the “consultants’ committee” of the BMA), and he put together a “grand alliance” of the BMA, the royal colleges, BUPA, and a member of the Hospital Consultants Association (HCA), a body that then threatened the BMA’s pre-eminence in representing consultants. For £20 000 (about £90 000 now) the alliance hired Lord Goodman, a friend of Wilson and the fixer of his day. He arranged a meeting of the group with Wilson and with a single phone call ensured an editorial supporting the consultants in a leading newspaper.

Goodman’s advice was that only Grabham speak in the meeting despite him being the most junior. Grabham expected Wilson to be a “rough diamond,” but he was dressed smartly and smoking a big cigar when the doctors arrived. Surrounded by older and grander men, including the presidents of the royal colleges, Grabham put the consultants’ case in what we can be sure was his clear, precise, polite, but firm manner. Wilson asked the then president of the Royal College of Surgeons what he thought, but, following Goodman’s advice, the president said that only Grabham would answer for the profession. The meeting was a success in that a compromise was found..’

Tony Grabham was given his knighthood for ‘his work in Chairing the JCC’. That 1988 knighthood. My complaint about Dafydd et al took so long to meander through the system and was subject to so many delays that although Bluglass didn’t perform the cover-up until the summer of 1989, my original complaint was made early in 1987. I have documentation demonstrating the numerous lies that were told to me, the number of documents that were forged/amended/post-dated etc. Tony Grabham was almost certainly still Chairing the JCC or very heavily influencing it when someone decided that Bluglass and Berry would need to be mobilised.

Grabham married, in 1960, Pamela Rudd, who survives him with their two sons and two daughters; two of his children are doctors.

Sir Anthony Grabham, born July 19 1930, died February 21 2015; 

A Truly Malignant Influence.

After his stint learning the ropes at the knee of Sir Anthony Grabham, Richard Tedder was appointed as Assistant Lecturer/Senior Registrar at the Middlesex Hospital Medical School, 1975-76. From 1977 to 1979 he was Wellcome Research Fellow at Middlesex in the Department of Medical Microbiology and a Lecturer in the same department, 1980-81. Tedder was appointed a Senior Lecturer at UCL Medical School in 1981; was Head of the Division of Virology, 1982-95, in 1991 being appointed Professor of Medical Virology. He became Head of the Department of Virology in 1995.

Tedder’s first published work was on Hep B, with later work on the diagnostic development and treatment of HIV and Hep C. He also has interests in chronic viral infections of the liver. Tedder is a consultant virologist to the National Blood Service and a member of several DoH, Royal College of Pathologists and Strategic Health Authorities working parties and groups in the fields of virology and pathology. 

Richard Tedder is also:

  • Honorary Consultant, Department of Microbiological Reagents, Public Health Laboratory Service, Colindale, 1981-
  • Short term external Consultant, Global Project on AIDS, World Health Organisation, Geneva, Switzerland, 1987-
  • Director of Virology Service, UCL Hospitals 1991 onwards
  • Honorary Consultant Microbiologist, North London Blood Transfusion Centre, Colindale, 1981 onwards
  • Department of Health Advisory Group on Hepatitis
  • Consultant Virologist to the National Blood Service, 1995 onwards
  • Head of Blood Borne Virus Unit at the Centre for Infections, Health Protection Agency, Colindale
  • Standing Advisory Committee on Transfusion Transmitted Infections
  • Advisory Committee on the Safety of Blood, Tissues and Organs (SaBTO)
  • Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians
  • Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists and Council Member
  • Society for General Microbiology
  • European Association for the Study of the Liver
  • European Rapid Viral Diagnosis Group

 

Richard Tedder’s older brother, Lord John Tedder, spent 15 years lecturing in chemistry at Birmingham University and then was appointed to the Roscoe Chair in Chemistry at the University of Dundee. Tedder became Purdie Professor of Chemistry at St. Andrews University in 1969, and held the post until 1989. He then served as Emeritus Professor, 1989–94.

Bluglass was not only an alumni of St Andrews, but he held the Chair in Forensic Psychiatry at Birmingham University for many years as well.

Tedder succeeded his father as Baron Tedder and served in the Lords. Although he was apparently reluctant to perpetuate the title, he was persuaded by colleagues that the peerage system could benefit by the presence of a scientist and educator. He served on the House of Lords Committee on Hazardous Waste, and contributed to discussions in the House about matters of science and tertiary education. He was also honoured by his election to a Fellowship of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.

In 1981, Tedder became a founding member of the World Cultural Council.

One of Lord John Tedder’s ‘time-consuming and abiding interests’ was the development of the Open University. The OU was a Harold Wilson initiative, the development of which Harold left to Jennie Lee and Lord Arnold Goodman to play with. Many paedophiles’ friends of an earlier generation were involved with the OU in its early days (see previous posts).

 

Richard and John Tedder’s grandfather, Sir Arthur Tedder, spent a life in the financial service of the Crown. He was Chief Inspector from 1906 to 1911 of Customs and Excise and above all others was the official responsible for the organisation of the machinery of the first old-age pension scheme in the world. Working directly for both Asquith and Lloyd George as Chancellor, Sir Arthur Tedder was an imaginative innovator who became one of Lloyd George’s favourite senior officials. Arthur Tedder occupied the key post of Commissioner of Customs and Excise from the watershed budget of 1909 with its tax on property until the end of the WWI.

So famille Tedder have been telling people in Gov’t what to do for generations.

 

There is very little trace of Robin Wesiss’s colleague Peter Beverley on the internet, although Beverley’s name occasionally crops up here and there. He can be found on the ResearchGate website, listed as an Emeritus Professor at Imperial College. Here’s his mugshot:

 

Peter Beverley

 

Beverley’s qualifications indicate that he was a Top Doctor as well as a scientist. Beverley also gets a mention in the biography of Professor Mala Maini, Professor of Viral Immunology in the Division of Infection & Immunity, Faculty of Medical Sciences, UCL:

‘I am Professor of Viral Immunology in the Division of Infection and Immunity at University College London, also working as a Consultant Physician in a viral hepatitis clinic. My research has always been closely informed by the patients I see in my clinics and the samples they generously donate for our work.

I obtained my specialist medical accreditation in 1995 and my PhD, funded by an MRC Clinical Training Fellowship, in the lab of Peter Beverley (ICRF, London) in 1998. A unifying theme in my research training has been the T cell immunology of persistent viral infections in humans (from EBV to HIV and then HBV). Whilst funded by the Edward Jenner Institute to work on HIV-2, I joined forces with Antonio Bertoletti and became increasingly focused on HBV immunopathogenesis, starting my own group in this field in 2002. After an MRC/Academy of Medical Sciences Clinical Scientist Fellowship, I moved into a tenured position at UCL and a personal chair in 2009. In 2013 I obtained a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award.

Other positions I currently hold:

  • Deputy Head of the Department of Immunology
  • Chair of the Athena Swan team, Division of Infection and Immunity
  • Deputy Post-graduate tutor, Division of Infection and Immunity
  • UCLP Theme Leader for Immunity/Immunotherapy of Chronic Infection

 Research Summary
  • Our research programme is focused on dissecting the immune correlates of viral persistence and liver damage in order to allow the development of novel immunotherapeutic strategies for hepatitis B virus (HBV).
  • As well as being of great medical importance in its own right, HBV provides a useful model to provide insights into liver immunology, which has relevance for other hepatotropic infections and malignancies, liver transplantation and autoimmunity.
  • We have become fascinated by how the liver utilises multiple specialised cell types and pathways to maintain a uniquely tolerant immunological environment. Defining the mechanisms of hepatic tolerance is critical to understanding how three of the most prevalent and devastating human pathogens, HBV, hepatitis C virus and malaria, take advantage of this niche in which to replicate and/or persist.
  • We are also interested in how hepatic immune responses mediate and regulate the liver damage that drives fibrosis, ultimately leading to the complications of liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) that still kill an estimated 600,000 people a year with chronic HBV infection. This is of particular interest in patients co-infected with HBV and HIV who have ongoing high mortality from accelerated liver fibrosis.
  • Existing therapies are rarely able to cure HBV or complications like HCC so our goal is to develop tailored boosting of antiviral immunity. The rationale for this approach is based on the fact that many adults control HBV through their natural immune response without overwhelming liver damage. 
Teaching Summary

I have made substantial contributions to various teaching programmes over the years and have acquired extensive experience in teaching through seminars, interactive tutorials, and one on one in the lab or clinic. I have taught medical students and junior doctors, BSc and MSc students, nurses and physiotherapists, and post-graduates on an Advanced Immunology course. 
Currently I teach on the Immunology BSc and Virology BSc courses and supervise undergraduate and postgraduate students in the laboratory.

Here’s Mala, who’s PhD was supervised by a cheat and a liar who remained silent even when one of his colleagues was found dead:

 

The Bloomberg website tells us that Peter Beverley ‘serves as Professor at Jenner Institute for Vaccine Research. Prof. Beverley served as head of the Imperial Cancer Research Fund’s Tumour Immunology until 1995. He served as Scientific Head of the Jenner Institute for Vaccine Research. His research interests include tumour immunology and the understanding of the memory T-cells of the immune system. He serves as Member of the Scientific Advisory Board at MNLpharma Ltd. Prof. Beverley has served on numerous UK Government research committees and has published over 150 scientific papers in the field of immunology.’

So Beverley held a senior role at ICRF, when the ICRF was one of the bodies at the centre of the 1990 research scandal which resulted in the death of Tim McElwain. Could that be the reason why Peter Beverley has largely disappeared from the internet? Furthermore, just look at the address provided for Beverley in his capacity as a Member of the Advisory Board for MNLpharma Ltd:

Corporate Headquarters

Aberystwyth, Dyfed SY23 3EBUnited Kingdom

Phone: 44 1970 823 201

Now there’s a surprise.

Plas Goggerdan is the address of IBERS (the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences) at Abersytwyth University.

It was claimed that:

MNLpharma (‘MNL’) is a private UK drug discovery and development company focused on the exploitation of imino sugar therapeutics for the prevention and treatment of disease. The company’s in-house programmes focus on cancer, and infectious diseases. MNLpharma has discovery and development programmes in the areas of immunomodulation and direct acting antivirals with a number of compounds showing promise against several key viral pathogens where effective treatments are currently lacking.

MNLpharma’s lead compound (MNLP462a) is an imino sugar immunomodulator which has demonstrated impressive protective and therapeutic effects in in vivo cancer models. As a broad spectrum immunotherapeutic MNLP462a is anticipated to be developed for use in a wide range of diseases including infection and as such has great commercial value and potential. This candidate will enter the clinic in 2006.

Whether that candidate did enter the clinic in 2006 or whether that was just another load of spin by some chancers with links to Dafydd et al I do not know.

In addition to imino sugars, the company has a unique chemistry platform of pure, novel, drug-like natural compounds called Phytopure. This collection is being exploited in a limited number of highly targeted collaborations. Whilst its own imino sugar therapeutics are being developed in-house, MNLpharma seeks to exploit Phytopure through a limited number of alliances with companies that are leaders in specific fields.

Phytopure wasn’t the only thing that was being exploited.

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

 

Phytopure led the the establishment of a company called PhytoQuest, also located at IBERS at Aberystwyth and which is very much still alive.

PhytoQuest’s website – which carries the logo of Aberystwyth University – tells us that PhytoQuest ‘owns science to innovate natural ingredients and compounds in the high-margin healthy-living products emerging from the convergence of food, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. PhytoQuest traces its history back to 1999 when Prof. Robert Nash founded MolecularNature Limited (MNL) as a spin-off of the UK’s Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research (IGER). In 2006, MNL was bought by Summit Plc and in 2009 an MBO allowed for the formation of PhytoQuest Ltd.

Director
Dr. Nash leads PhytoQuest and is a global leader in the field of phytochemistry. He spent the first decade of his post-doctoral work focused “on anti-viral agents with the Medical Research Council AIDS-Directed Programme” at King’s College London and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He then moved to IGER as the head of its chemistry group, and was a founding director of MNL and founded its holding company, MNL Pharmaceuticals Ltd. Dr Nash has published over 200 scientific publications and patents, and he was awarded the 1st Pierre-Fabre Award of the Phytochemical Society of Europe in 2001. Robert gives many international conference presentations and media interviews.’
The other staff of PhytoQuest are: Dr Barbara Bartholomew, Biochemist.
Dr. Bartholomew is an experienced biochemist and is responsible for bioassays and project management. Dr Jackie Hollinshead, Organic Chemist.
Dr. Hollinshead is a synthetic chemist by training and expert in structural elucidation and purifications. Hazel Sharp, Natural Products Chemist. Hazel has extensive commercial experience in compound purification and IT data management. Yana Penkova, Business Development. Yana is an agronomist who specialised in herbal medicines and food plants. She has long business experience in the chemical industry utilising her masters in Organic Chemistry.
PhyoQuest’s website’s ‘news’ section tells us that ‘PhytoQuest is conducting a number of clinical studies to support the health benefits of iminosugars in new retail products. Some new molecules are being pursued as novel pharmaceuticals for glucose control and reducing inflammation. PhytoQuest receives Biotechnology award as Global Leader in Phytochemistry from AI Global Media.’
PhytoQuest have worked with BEACON, who spoke most highly of PhytoQuest, which is not surprising, because BEACON is another Aberystwyth University-associated company, the Biorefining Centre of Excellence:

‘The BEACON Biorefining Centre of Excellence is a partnership between Aberystwyth, Bangor and Swansea Universities, working in the field of conversion of biomass into biobased products.  Led by Aberystwyth University, it is backed with nearly £8 million from the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government. BEACON helps Welsh businesses develop new ways of converting feedstocks (e.g. rye grass, oats, miscanthus) and waste streams into products which have applications in the pharmaceutical, chemicals, fuel and cosmetic industries.

BEACON will build on research already underway at Aberystwyth University’s Institute of Biological Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) to produce fuels from energy crops such as high-sugar grasses like rye. It will also enable Swansea University to focus on developing their expertise in using bacteria and fungi to digest, or ferment, plant matter within the bio-refining process.

Bangor University will build on work to develop new materials from plants which can be used to develop innovative products, having recently discovered that compounds found in some local plants can be used to control problems like potato blight.

We are seeking to:

  • Establish links between the business community and academia within Wales
  • Develop new products and processes that will support economic growth
  • Create highly skilled jobs in the area of green biotech
  • Support inward investment
  • Promote science excellence from Wales

BEACON offers businesses with interests in the biorefining sector access to the research, expertise and knowledge base of universities in Wales.
We can help:

  • Companies in the construction, packaging and manufacturing industries by developing new biocomposite materials
  • The bioscience industry – for example, developing new microbial or enzyme systems and technologies for the processing of biomass
  • The chemical industry by providing new sources of ‘green’ chemicals
  • Fuel producers by offering ‘green’ fuels, impacting on the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) and reducing carbon emissions
  • Rural communities by applying biorefinery technology to the processing of non-food crops

This encompasses a huge range of businesses in areas as diverse as: Agrochemicals, Bio Fuels, Coatings and Adhesives, Cosmetics and Personal, Essential Oils, Lubricants, Nutraceuticals, Pharmaceuticals, Speciality Polymers, Surfactants, Water and Effluent Treatment, for example.

The BEACON partners can undertake:

  • Formulation of new biocomposites
  • Extrusion / bioplastics
  • Novel chemistries / applications
  • Metabolic engineering of yeasts
  • Protein modelling such as new enzymes, e.g. for food industry or bioprocessing
The Institutes with which Robert Nash is associated at Aberystwyth University are part of the Agricultural Sciences/Plant Biology bits of Aber. One of the plant biology academics at Aber is the son of ‘Davey Crockett’, an Angel who spent many years working at the North Wales Hospital, Denbigh, manning Dafydd’s Dungeon. Davey Crockett’s real name was I’m fairly sure Jones, so his son will be one of the academics called Jones featured on the IBERS webpages. Davey Crockett’s daughter is a social worker who ended up with a job as a senior social worker in the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for Wales. See previous posts. They all loathed Dafydd but were very frightened of him and called for his assistance in the event of emergencies. Not that Dafydd always delivered…
The Agri Sciences/Plant Biology bits of Aberystwyth were closely linked to the same Depts at UCNW (Bangor). Both the Plant Biology and the Agri Dept at UCNW were very closely associated with Dafydd and his gang. Mary Wynch was working as a secretary in the Agri Dept when Dafydd had her unlawfully arrested and imprisoned and not one of her colleagues raised a concern. The Agri Dept was massively dysfunctional (see post ‘Not Seen Since The 80s – Carwyn’) and I believe that Mary discovered something appalling there, which was why she was targeted by Dafydd. Whatever Mary discovered I suspect had something to do with Lord Lloyd Kenyon, who was President of UCNW for many years and who’s adult son Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon was caught sexually abusing a boy in the care of the social services in the late 1970s. Thomas made a complaint of theft against the boy – among the items which the boy was alleged to have stolen were pornographic Polaroid photos of him and Thomas together – and the boy was sent to a detention centre. Thomas faced no charges. Lord Kenyon’s special interests were agriculture and health. He held many appointments, including with the North Wales Police Authority and Clwyd Health Authority. Lord Kenyon sat as a magistrate, was a Director of Lloyds Bank and the most senior Freemason in Wales and much else besides (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’).
Professor Richard Howath, an agricultural economist at UCNW, somehow ended up as one of Thatch’s advisers during the 1980s, despite the standing joke which was the Agri Dept. Howarth was a man of right wing and anti-European sentiment who disappeared off the face of the earth during the mid-1990s. He was last heard of running a B&B. See previous posts.
A paedophiles’ friend who was a student and then a member of staff in the Agric Dept at UCNW was Dr John Perkins, who later became the Academic Registrar at UCNW. John Perkins did all that he possibly could to stop me from getting a PhD. Firstly he pushed the boat out so far in terms of not registering me when I first began my PhD but failing to tell me this that I had already written my first journal article when my PhD supervisor received a phone call from the University authorities telling him that I hadn’t registered so obviously I would be withdrawing from my PhD. My supervisor explained that I was sitting at the desk next to him, I had written my first chapter and drafted a journal article and I had registered weeks ago. In the end it took a series of visits and phone calls to Perkins and an order from my supervisor to register me. It was even more fun when I finished my PhD and passed my viva. Perkins just could not find it in him to sign the bit of paper necessary to send to the Registry at the University of Wales HQ to enable me to actually receive my PhD. Phone calls and visits from my supervisor and I were ignored. After weeks of this I paid yet another visit to Perkins’s office only to be told that he wasn’t there. I found him in a corridor and told the bastard that if that piece of paper wasn’t signed within the next couple of days I’d begin legal action against the University. I received my PhD within two days.
Lest readers think that I spend all my time threatening to take legal action against people, no, I honestly do not. I had however learned from decades of bitter experience that it was the only thing that will sometimes shift the paedophiles’ friends. It isn’t always successful even then, because they’re a load of perjuring bastards with an extensive network of bent lawyers and the whole lot of them break the law with impunity constantly.
I have received an e mail from someone today who’s mother died at the hands of the paedophiles’ friends and after smelling what she thought was a small rat, she investigated and uncovered a mountain of corruption leading to the doorway of Dr Brian Gibbons, former Welsh Gov’t Health Minister. It didn’t surprise me. My correspondent observed that perhaps she had been very silly being so open and transparent with that lot. No she hadn’t. They are such a bunch of maggots that being more honest than they are is about the only thing that will save you. They always interpret honesty as naivety or stupidity or that you are someone who can be easily intimidated, because the concept of fair play is just completely alien to them. Honest = idiot in their eyes. They spend their entire time knifing each other and only unite in the face of the Enemy ie. those who are Not Of Dafydd’s Gang. The glue that binds them together is their own serious criminality; they blackmail each other with their own wrongdoing constantly to get what they want. If you are not a serious criminal they can’t do that to you.
I spent decades having that lot face me with allegations of ludicrous crimes: ‘ooh you swore at Dr DA’, ‘ooh you shouted at an Angel’, ‘ooh that social worker was terrified, she thought that she was going to be murdered’, all the way through to stupid, fantastical allegations about me being a potential mass murderer and a danger to children and God knows what and they told absolutely everybody else that I was as well. I now have 10,000 documents, demonstrating the most dreadful crimes on the part of the whole lot of them, all the way up to High Court judges. People have spent years ‘discussing’ matters with them, sending in task forces and management consultants and turnaround senior managers, holding inquiries and investigations and asking them if they would do things differently faced with the same situation. Of course they wouldn’t, they were and are a gang of criminals and they should have been dealt with in 1979 when they wrecked Mary Wynch’s life. I have now kicked them hard and there is more to come. Those bastards have had this coming for a very long time. People have been good enough to send me e mails thanking me. They don’t need to and contrary to some comments I am not ‘brave’ either. I just got fucking sick of them and sick of no-one dealing with them as the bodies mounted up.
You shouldn’t have done it tossers, not to me or anyone else. You had this coming to you. You have killed my friends, killed my friend’s baby, harassed and threatened me, swindled me, lied about me, tried to kill Brown, tried to have me imprisoned repeatedly, paid people to lie about me, terrorised people who supported me and had me sacked from nearly every job that I have ever had, yet plagiarised my work to gain further funding because you couldn’t do it yourselves. You are completely incapable of responding to anything positive at all, you just can’t do it. So I’ve gone public on the whole lot because I know how many other people you have done this to who have just quietly been destroyed by you.
I’ll remind the caring Angels of the Hergest Unit of the lady with heart problems whom they dragged out of her bad, naked, while she was having a heart attack, screaming at her that she was a fat lazy bitch. Not very nice was it Angels? It nearly fucking killed her as well, a Top Doctor was eventually called and she ended up in intensive care. Loads of people knew about that incident but no-one, no-one blew the whistle. That patient has been too frightened ever to return to Ysbyty Gwynedd.
Just carry on planting a few more Good News PR stories in the media Angels and Top Doctors, because there are more blog posts to come.
By the way, a BBC journalist knew about the lady who had a heart attack while lying naked on the floor with the dulcet tones of Angels swearing at her ringing in her ears, but no, we never heard anything about it did we… Just the usual, ‘Ah The Doctors They Were Wonderful’…
As for those assisting with the Empowered Service Users Group at the North West Wales NHS Trust, one was Ann Perkins, wife of John Perkins. Ann is involved with the church in Menai Bridge. She uttered not a word about the serious abuse of patients and the deaths. Her colleague on the same Empowered Service Users Group was the Rev Wynne Roberts, a former Church in Wales vicar who was sacked for shagging one of his parishioners – they were both married to other people at the time – and then given the job of the Chaplain in Ysbyty Gwynedd. Wynne witnessed the abuse and deaths of psych patients and said nothing. He served the NW Wales NHS Trust so well that he was given a job in senior management with them and he also sat on the Ethics Committee. Wynne’s son is an Angel who trained at Bangor University while his dad was sitting on the Ethics Committee and part of the Trust management. Wynne took a special interest in mental health and ended up sitting on Mental Health Review Tribunals. In recent years, Wynne has been raising the spirits of the Empowered Service Users and indeed raising money for the NHS by dressing up and impersonating Elvis. If readers unfamiliar with the North Wales NHS cannot believe that it really does employ a singing Elvis-impersonating vicar who shags his parishioners, read more in my post ‘Music Therapy Anyone?’.
 There has been excitement at Aberystwyth University over the past couple of weeks as a result of the new Bovine TB Institute that either has opened or will soon be opening there soon. Wales’s Chief Veterinary Officer Professor Christianne Glossop was on hand to say a few words. Christianne Glossop was appointed Wales’s first CVO in 2005. She might have found that she has a task on her hands.
Think that a gang of paedophiles and people traffickers could not possibly have domain over vets? Think again. Empowered Service Users who dared complain about Dafydd and the gang subsequently found it very hard to get treatment for their pets. Even customers of the vets who had been known to the practices for years and had always paid their bills, after Challenging The Paedophiles’ Friends, would find that somehow their pets would not be treated. If you took your pet in as an emergency, there would be a row about payment before your pet was treated and then whatever the situation, a refusal to treat the pet, even if it was in agony. I witnessed Peter Jones of Treborth vets refuse to treat the pet dog of a customer whom he had known for a good 15 years who had always paid, after the Word From Dafydd had been sent out. When I watched the scene I just thought that Peter Jones must be a really nasty piece of work, which was confirmed when I heard two other people allege that he had injured their pets while treating them. A few years later, I discovered that Peter Jones was in the same Bible study group (yes it’s unbelievable isn’t it) as a Top Doctor who had worked at Hergest and who was the Chair of the BMA young GPs group…
There is another vet in Bangor called Evelyn to whom no-one would go because he was so unpleasant, although Evelyn seemed to be offensive to everyone, not just to Empowered Service Users. Evelyn’s finest hour came when a terrier was hit by a car in Tregarth and his owners took him to Evelyn. The terrier’s owners were new to the village and went to Evelyn because they had seen the massive ‘Veterinary Surgery’ notice outside of his house. As they were walking up his path with their bleeding injured terrier in their arms, Evelyn was just about to close the surgery. They asked ‘our dog’s been run over, can you treat him?’ and Evelyn replied ‘if you’re asking me if it’s surgery hours no it isn’t, I’ve just finished.’ So the terrier’s owners replied that they weren’t asking him if it was surgery hours, they were asking him if he’d treat their dog. After an argument, Evelyn finally agreed.
Then there was Hubbards vets in Caernarfon. The vets in Hubbards were very nice, so to compensate they employed Bethan the Fat Spotty Cow on reception, who took a leaf out of Peter Jones’s book. Long-standing customer who always paid bills on time? Ill or injured pet in pain in an emergency? Fuck off. In the case of the Fat Spotty Cow, I was told that it was definitely personal to Enemies Of The Paedophiles, including me. I used to have five dogs and for a long time the nearest vets to my place was Hubbards. I gave up with Hubbards when for the third time that I took in an ill or dying dog the Fat Spotty Cow screamed at me in front of the whole waiting room that what with it being me, That Dog Will Not Be Treated Until You’ve Paid. I challenged the Fat Spotty Cow on each occasion, pointing out that I had never not paid, so what exactly was the point of the Public Warning? Each time the Fat Spotty Cow very quietly admitted that yes I had always paid and of course the vets would treat my dog. The last straw came when my dog with cancer was on painkillers to make things easier for him for his last two weeks before I and the vet had agreed that he’d be put down and as I went to pick up the tablets – which the vet had OK’d an hour previously – the Fat Spotty Cow placed them high on a shelf behind her with the 100 decibel Public Warning ‘Not Until They’ve Been Paid For In Advance’. At that point Hubbards lost my custom. I never understood why they didn’t just sack Bethan the Fat Spotty Cow on the spot, she must have cost them a fortune in lost custom. But then Mrs Hubbard the Senior Vet was a close friend of Dr Lynda Dykes, the A&E Top Doc in Ysbyty Gwynedd; they would go riding together through my village…
The A&E in which Angels regularly threatened me and other Empowered Service Users and refused point blank to treat us.
  • Rock Star Academy & Landmarks : Bathroom Wall, T-Shirts ...
In the face of the Psychopathic Vets, Empowered Service Users were very grateful when a wonderful vet was discovered in Llanfairfechan, Dr Katz. Word got round that Dr Katz was a really nice man and for the Empowered Service Users who couldn’t afford bills, he trusted them enough to wait until they’d saved up or he would let them pay by instalments. Dr Katz soon found himself in great demand. I think that his wife taught at St Gerard’s School in Bangor. One day Dr Katz was gone. I was told by someone a few years later that he had been faced with a shameful hate campaign and his life had been made so unbearable that he had left north Wales. This person thought that it was racism, Dr Katz being Polish. Another source told me that it was our old friends Dafydd’s gang. It had been discovered that Dr Katz had broken the Mafia Code and had been treating the pets of the Enemies Of The Paedophiles for which Dr Katz paid dearly.
Dr Katz would have been particularly vulnerable in Llanfairfechan, it is a stronghold of Paedophiles’ Friends. Bryn-y-Neuadd Hospital was in Llanfairfechan, which was for years the hospital for the ‘mentally handicapped’ where Dafydd and Dr Michael Craft carried out their ‘research’ into ‘incestuous families’ while Ann Craft helped the patients Explore Their Sexual Needs and Supported Them In Their Sexual Relationships (see post ‘The Old Devils’). At the same time, the senior managers of Bryn-y-Neuadd referred to those Exploring Their Sexual Needs with Ann as ‘vegetables’ and ‘cabbages’. Perhaps it was events at Bryn-y-Neuadd which led to Esther Rantzen of ChildLine and Mental Health Campaigning Fame taking such an interest in root vegetables shaped like genitalia.
Ann Craft ended up with a senior academic post at Nottingham University and was a leading light in the charidee world.
Dafydd and Lucille’s mate Cledwyn Williams Led the Services for the Mentally Handicapped when they Explored Their Sexual Needs with Ann:
Cledwyn Williams
 From 1983 to 1996 Cledwyn was Assistant Director of Social Services, responsible for mentally handicapped services and for the all-Wales strategy for people with learning disabilities. He was responsible for developing services for people with learning disabilities for the education, health & social services group. After this, he became Director of Social Services for Conwy. Cledwyn is now Vice-Chair of Dafydd’s charidee, CAIS.
Don’t worry world; children, the mentally ill and learning disabled, they were all preyed upon by the trafficking gang. Everybody knew it, including the Top Doctors, Angels, Social Services, North Wales Police, Magistrates, Lawyers, Judges etc, but if you’re a vet who treats the animals of someone who’s complained about it all, you’ll be run out of town.
The Angels of Bryn-y-Neuadd – and some of the Angels of Dafydd’s Denbigh Dungeon – used to insist on being called ‘Mr’, at least by the vegetables who could talk. The unqualified or at best semi-qualified thugs were called Mr by the people whom they battered and sexually assaulted. Everyone knew that this was happening.
Ah The Doctors And Nurses They were Wonderful!
  • Folkestone: That's life presenter and charity campaigner ...

One of the Angels from Bryn-y-Neuadd ended up as a Senior Lecturer at the School of Healthcare Sciences at Bangor University. He told one of the receptionists not to let me into the building because I was a dangerous loony who attacked people with knives. It certainly baffled her because as far as she was concerned I was someone’s PhD supervisor.

 

Two Angels from Dafydd’s Denbigh Dungeon also became Academics in the School of Healthcare Sciences. One was Ruhi Behi, ‘Mr Behi’ – he thought that he still worked at Denbigh – who ended up as Head of the School and the other is now grand-sounding Dr Seren Roberts:
Seren Roberts small
‘I am a registered mental health nurse and health services researcher. Following clinical nurse training, I studied psychology to PhD and later studied for a Masters in Public Health and Health Promotion at Bangor University. I am a Lecturer in Mental Health in the School of Healthcare Sciences, Bangor University, and have honorary research roles within the School of Medicine in Swansea University and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. My role includes working closely with two research networks across Wales; Mental Health Research Network Cymru (MHRNC) and Wales Dementia and Neurodegenerative Diseases Research Network (NEURODEM Cymru). I have a broad interest in mental health research with active involvement with several research projects, often as chief or principal investigator. To date my research activity has largely focused on two main themes; treatment for depression and physical health of people on antipsychotic medication. I am a Principal Investigator for a large NIHR HTA funded multicentre trial of antidepressant treatment, I convene a Wales-wide research development group (ATHRAM), funded by MHRNC which aims to generate research ideas and proposals on the physical health of people taking antipsychotic medication. I am actively involved with and sit on a range of local and national committees including the Wales Mental Health in Primary Care Network.’
Slob Ingham, the drunken thug of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team who’s favourite ‘client’ dealt in drugs in the Royal Oak in Rachub – ‘anything, I can get you anything you want’ – lived in Llanfairfechan as did the harridan of a Top Doctor Marie Savage.
After Bryn-y-Neuadd was emptied of vegetables exploring their sexual needs in the 1990s, it served for a time as the administrative HQ of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust. The corrupt manager Alun Davies had his office there, along with his equally corrupt side-kick Sandra Phillips. It was a convenient arrangement, because most of the Empowered Service Users didn’t drive and it was very difficult for most of Gwynedd to get to Llanfairfechan on the bus, so Davies and Phillips setting up shop there certainly cut down the options for complaining about the ‘service’. Some of the Empowered lived some forty miles away from the Complaints Office and it was a two day bus journey to get there as a result of the bus timetables. But then there were patients on the north of Anglesey who also faced a two day bus journey to get to Ysbyty Gwynedd for a twenty minute appointment.
Thank God Professor Mark Williams organised all those three day Mindfulness retreats for the mental health staff down in that nice Trigonos centre, by the lake in Nantlle. Duw It’s Hard.
‘Retreat at Trigonos, Snowdonia’

‘I’ve just spent a restorative week on retreat at the Trigonos centre in Nantlle, North Wales. The natural scenery and wildlife were stunning. For me, the highlight was an early morning practice on the lakeside as the sun rose from behind Snowdon. The mountain (in the centre of the picture)2016-04-09 19.05.13 was a constant presence during the retreat. I had the luxury of time to notice how, from minute to minute, the landscape was subtly or sometimes dramatically transformed by the ever-changing light and weather.

The retreat was organised by the Mindfulness Network CIC especially for mindfulness teachers. I’m grateful for the support and guidance of the highly skilled facilitators, Trish, Bartley and Elaine Young. I learned so much from the experience and I’m incorporating these insights and approaches into my own practice and teaching.’

I always wondered if the mental health staff claimed for aromatherapy massages on expenses or those foot spa things that are coloured pink and swirl people’s feet with hot water. Or they could have gone on an away day to Chester, where there was one of those establishments where people had their feet nibbled by fish.
Here’s Mark, all spiritual and living in the moment:

Mark Williams

Mark Williams set up a collaborative project with Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore, who like Robin Weiss, works at UCL. Dafydd’s gang has links going back years with UCL. Professor Pauline Horne, Fungus Lowe’s side-kick in the School of Psychology at Bangor was in a previous life an MSc student at UCL (see post ‘Feet In Chains’) and in the 1990s, Dr Tony Francis referred a patient of his to an endocrinologist at UCL for ‘specialist help’. I heard a lot about this endocrinologist and she sounded quite bonkers. She also very obviously made the condition of the Hergest patient much worse.
Another part of Bryn-y-Neuadd was developed into Ty Llewellyn, a medium secure psychiatric unit. It still contains some of those who were fitted up by Dafydd and the gang nearly thirty years ago, including a man who when he was 15 yrs old was sentenced for the ‘unprovoked murder’ of the vicar of Llanberis. The official story is that the vicar was a kindly man who spent his time helping local boys and that this psycho repaid him by murdering him with intent to rob. The boy’s story has always been that the vicar tried to sexually assault him and that he did not mean to kill him but was fighting him off. I didn’t know either the vicar or the boy, but when I asked a local person about the case years later, the first thing that I was told was ‘oh that vicar was a paedophile’.
Who could ever tell where the truth lay.

 

Someone who became a Champion of CR UK and promoted its work after her own life was touched by cancer was the agony aunt Claire Rayner, who began advertising the wonders of these research fraudsters in 2002. I don’t know whether Claire Rayner knew of the details of the frauds with which CR UK had been involved, although of the many celeb supporters of CR UK, Claire would be in a better position than most to acquire knowledge of and see through the scams.

Rayner was from a London Jewish family and was educated at the City of London School for Girls. In 2003, Rayner discussed a childhood of physical cruelty and sexual abuse at the hands of her parents. Her family emigrated to Canada and following that, in 1945, Claire was placed in a psychiatric hospital by her parents. Claire Rayner received much credit for Speaking Out and she was frank that she had endured a very hard time. Claire Spoke Out after quite a few other people had begun Speaking Out, but before the en masse Speaking Out.

All I could think was why hadn’t Claire Spoken Out about a few other things? When I began working in biomedical research in the late 1980s, Claire had long since established her reputation as an agony aunt and an expert on matters Angels and the NHS and would be invited onto ‘serious’ TV programmes as well as lighthearted quiz shows. On one occasion I was watching a lighthearted show starring Claire in which the guests had the chance of Living Out Their Dearest Fantasy. One old lech stated that he wanted to be given a bed bath by ‘three dolly nurses’. Everyone in the studio was bowled over by this Carry On notion and there were many Babs Windsor-esque jokes; to Claire’s credit she did make a comment to the effect that nurses are ‘not there for that’. But that was the only comment that she did make. The old lech was duly prepared for his bed bath on screen and then three butch male Angels arrived on stage. We pissed ourselves laughing in our house because we presumed that was the punchline. It wasn’t. After all the grimacing and mock horror, the male Angels left the stage and three absolute Barbara Windsors were paraded on, complete with ludicrous hats, mini-dresses and suspenders and gave the old lech his bed bath.

Claire joined in the fun and there were no more comments about Angels’ roles in real hospitals.

I don’t want to come over all Milli Tant here, but there was – and is – quite a serious problem with Angels being sexually harassed at work. This blog has documented cases of Angels running prostitution rackets in hospitals and shagging their way up the promotion ladder like there’s no tomorrow, but I have also been friends with Angels who have told me that because there is so much of that going on, life for Angels who are not involved can be very difficult. One Angel went as far as to tell me ‘sometimes I can understand why nurses are seen as such slags because many are and it means the rest of us aren’t taken seriously at work’. The same Angel made some very insightful comments about gender roles and gender stereotyping in the healthcare and why such a toxic situation had arisen. These matters were being discussed by Angels at the time yet Claire Rayner, while pretending to be the sort of Thinking Angel who took an interest in such debates, would join in the fuckwittery with only a quick passing comment.

There was so much that Claire Rayner could have discussed eg. the organised sexual abuse of children and vulnerable patients, the dreadful workplace bullying in the NHS, research fraud and dangerous practice, the culture of simply lying when harm to patients had occurred, the cronyism and nepotism that underpins the whole system. Claire could also have blown the whistle on Jimmy Savile because she bloody well knew about him and I think that she knew about Dafydd and the associated gangs as well.

Not a word.

Rayner did know. She trained as an Angel in the UK in the 1950s at the Royal Northern Hospital and then Guy’s in London. In 1957 Rayner married her husband, the actor Desmond Rayner. She continued nursing in London and worked as a midwife and nursing sister. Rayner knew all about the matters of which I have provided details on this blog. She personally knew some of those who provided a lifelong umbrella for Dafydd. Like everybody else, she kept quiet because Claire wanted to make it big as a Sensible Nurse and she wasn’t going to do that by being honest about the crime and corruption. So it was debates over natural vs caesarean births – but only when that became widely discussed – for Claire and similarly non-controversial but topical subjects.

So how did Claire begin her journo/writing career? By a letter to ‘Nursing Times’ in 1958, on nurses’ pay and conditions. She then began regularly writing to The Torygraph on themes of patient care or nurses’ pay. She began writing novels soon after her marriage and by 1968 had published more than 25 books.

Nurses in the 1950s saw some shocking behaviour on the part of healthcare staff. Rayner didn’t mention the worst excesses.

After the birth of her first child in 1960 Rayner focused on a full-time writing career. Initially writing articles for various magazines and publications, in 1968 she published one of the earliest sex manuals, People in Love, which brought her to national attention. Describing the “explicit content”, the same reviewer commended Rayner on her “down-to-earth approach to the subject”.

But Claire did not write about the organised abuse rings which were then a feature of the welfare system and were concealed by the Top Docs, particularly psychiatrists.

By the 1970s, writing for ‘Woman’s Own’, Rayner had established herself as one of four new and direct “agony aunts”. Her advice in the teenaged girls’ magazine ‘Petticoat’ caused controversy. In 1972 she was accused of “encouraging masturbation and promiscuity in prepubescent girls”. I never read ‘Petticoat’, so whether Rayner did encourage such things I do not know. Although I’d have thought that masturbation was harmless enough and not anyone else’s business.

Rayner’s direct and frank approach led the BBC to ask her to be the first person on British pre-watershed television to demonstrate how to put on a condom and she was one of the first people used by advertisers to promote sanitary towels. I remember it well, it caused my friends and I much entertainment and was also the beginning of Brown’s analysis of the medicalisation of sanitary protection: ‘Dr Whites’, ‘Lil-lets were designed by a doctor’ etc. Lil-lets were probably designed by a greedy old sod who saw a market. As did Claire Rayner.

The BBC’s sex education/Dr Whites’ expert did not mention the elephant /paedophile in the studio/dressing room/caravan at the time:

 

Jimmy Savile abuse scandal: judge-led inquiry would be ...

 

After beginning to appear on Pebble Mill at One in 1972, Rayner started an agony column in ‘The Sun’ in 1973, but left to join the ‘Sunday Mirror’ in 1980, when she also made her second television series of Claire Rayner’s Casebook. She left the Sunday Mirror shortly after the appointment of Eve Pollard as Editor – did Claire fall out with that particular Glenda? – and joined the ‘Today’ newspaper for three years. Rayner was named medical journalist of the year in 1987.

1987. Peak Dafydd and Savile! Mary Wynch had won the first part of her case and Alison Taylor and I wouldn’t shut up… Savile was also in the process of becoming the General Manager of Broadmoor at that time (see previous posts).

Rayner was probably best known as an agony aunt on TV-am in the late 1980s and early 1990s. She made it her personal aim to reply to every letter she received. This was an unfunded project by the station. So Claire will have been one of the agony aunts of that generation who later admitted receiving letters from the victims of sexual assault who’s letters were never mentioned because the names of some well-known people had been given in some of those letters. By the time that Claire was on TV-am, I had written to Esther about Dafydd et al. Esther did not reply. Esther received at least one letter about Savile which was ignored.

Rayner became President of the Patients Association – which was dominated by Top Doctors rather than patients who were not Top Docs as well – and through her extensive charidee work and writings was awarded an OBE in 1996 for services to wimmin’s health and wellbeing and to health matters. Well that was a nice gift in the year that William Hague announced that the Waterhouse Inquiry would be held.

 

Rayner had a very personal reason for supporting Sense’s Older Person campaign, wearing hearing aids in both ears and also having AMD, a sight loss condition common in older people.

Between 1993 and 2002, Rayner was one of the Patrons of the Herpes Viruses Association and Chaired a Press Briefing in June 1993 aimed at destigmatising genital herpes. When tendering her resignation, Rayner cited the fact that she was Patron of 60 organisations as the reason for trimming the list. I knew a man in Bethesda at that time with herpes. He was so Destigmatising about it that he gave it to quite a few other people, including I suspect those who attended the sex parties along with him in Chester. This man was bisexual but he was very condemning of those who had sex with children; however he was having sex with rent boys and at least one former patient of Dafydd’s and I don’t think that it would ever have occurred to him to ask himself why they were having sex with the likes of him for money…

Rayner was appointed to various UK Gov’t committees on health and was the author of a chapter in The Future of the NHSDespite being President of the Patients Association, Rayner used private health care. She wasn’t going to risk her own neck was she. She was a member of the PM’s Commission on Nursing and the Labour Gov’ts Royal Commission on the Care of the Elderly. In 1999 Rayner was appointed to a committee responsible for reviewing the medical conditions at Holloway Prison, at the direction of Paul Boateng, who was then the Minister for Prisons. The recommendations of this committee ‘led to far reaching changes in the provision of medical care within Holloway.’

Holloway was notorious for housing numerous women who were so severely mentally ill that the other prisoners identified them as being ‘muppets’. The muppets also had a terrifyingly high rate of self-harm and suicide. Most of those muppets had been abused as children in care or in the psychiatric system. The plight of the muppets did eventually receive widespread media coverage and everyone felt a warm glow around their hearts when the muppets were transferred to long-stay secure mental hospitals. Back into the arms of those who had turned them into muppets in the first place…

Paul Boateng would have known a lot about the muppets. Boateng’s wife Janet was a Lambeth social worker and was Chair of Lambeth Social Services when Tyra Henry was murdered in the care of Lambeth in the 1980s. Lambeth had a massive problem with a paedophile ring which had infiltrated its children’s homes and that ring was linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Children in care from Lambeth were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. Esther Rantzen’s sister Priscilla was a social worker for Lambeth and Priscilla’s boss Valerie – now Baroness – Howarth was appointed Chief Exec of ChildLine. Before Paul Boateng was an MP, he was a lawyer working for Birnberg & Co. Who when Boateng worked for Birnberg, acted for Mary Wynch when she sued Dafydd et al. See previous posts.

No wonder Paul Boateng put a safe pair of Savile-friendly hands like Claire Rayner on that Holloway committee.

 

Rayner was a lifelong Labour Party supporter until 2001, when Rayner resigned from the Labour Party and joined the Lib Dems for fear of the changes to the NHS proposed by Miranda. Claire was a prominent supporter of the British republican movement, although admitted her dual standards on accepting her OBE in 1996. Dame Helen Mirren succumbed as well, but her excuse for accepting after a lifetime of saying that she never would was ‘that it was for her parents’. Who I think were dead by then.

Lilibet: It’s OK, you don’t have to worry. When my gong arrives, I really will send it back to you. Thanks for the thought anyway!

 

Rayner was Vice-President (and formerly President) of the British Humanist Association, a Distinguished Supporter of the Humanist Society Scotland and an Honorary Associate of the National Secular Society. In the weeks leading up to her death, Rayner had the following to say about Pope Benedict’s XVI’s state visit to the United Kingdom:

Pots and Kettles Auntie Claire. Furthermore, Savile met Popes and picked up gongs from the Catholic Church.

Rayner, whilst a Patron of the Down’s Syndrome Association, had her position promptly terminated after labelling parents as “selfish” for having a disabled child:

 

We can’t waste valuable NHS resources on useless eaters like that.

  • Arbeit macht Frei | Scrapbookpages Blog
  • North Wales Hospital, Denbigh - County Asylums

 

Rayner and her husband had three children together: writer and food critic Jay Rayner; electronics reviewer, angling and motoring journalist Adam Rayner and events manager Amanda Rayner.

Thank God none of them are disabled and they are therefore able to labour for their food and contribute usefully to society by writing about the sort of food that a lot of people cannot afford, expensive hobbies and by managing Events. Claire was no doubt proud of them.

Claire suffered from Grave’s disease.

Anyone for euthanasia, post-Credit Crunch?

 

Rayner never recovered from the emergency intestinal surgery that she received in May 2010 and died in hospital on 11 October 2010. She told her relatives she wanted her last words to be: “Tell David Cameron that if he screws up my beloved NHS I’ll come back and bloody haunt him.”

Ah, Claire she was wonderful! Along with the doctors.

Claire Rayner was a prolific author of fiction and her output was nearly as impressive as that of Barbara Cartland. Some of her titles were:

  • Soho Square (1976)
  • Flapper (1988)
  • Blitz (19
  • First Blood (1993)
  • Second Opinion (1994)
  • London Lodgings (1994)
  • Paying Guests (1995)
  • Lady Mislaid (1968)
  • Death on the Table (1969)
  • The Meddlers (1970)
  • The Running Years (1981)
  • The Enduring Years (1982)
  • The Virus Man (1985)
  • Children’s Ward, the Lonely One, Private Wing (1988)
  • Dangerous Things (1993)
  • The Final Year (1993)
  • The Doctors of Downlands (1994)
  • Children’s Ward (1995)
  • The Private Wing (1996)
  • The Legacy (1997)
  • The Inheritance (1998)
  • The Murdering Old Psychiatrist (unfinished)

Among Claire’s ‘non-fiction’ titles is a volume called ‘What Happens In A Hospital’, although I suspect that should probably have been listed under ‘fiction’.

 

 

The self-promotion in relation to the Welsh Labour leadership campaign continues. Mark Drakeford was ‘delighted’ to receive the support of UNISON, which in the light of Drakeford’s Health and Social Services policy simply consisting of asking the NHS how much money they would like and how often followed by an assurance that there will be no action taken against anyone no matter how great the scandal/wrongdoing/disaster, was nor surprising.

I was sent an article from the ‘Western Mail’ in which the Baroness of Ely styled herself ‘A Socialist For The Digital Age’ and most entertainingly stressed that she is worthy of being FM because she is ‘not an insider’. Full details of the Baroness’s biography and doings can be read in previous posts, but here’s a very brief resume:

The Baroness’s dad was the Rev Bob Morgan, who was Labour leader of South Glamorgan County Council. The Rev Bob was mates with all the Labour big wigs and movers and shakers and was also involved in charidee work with the molester George Thomas, aka Viscount Tonypandy, a long-serving south wales Labour MP and one-time Speaker of the House. The Baroness knew many of these big wigs at a young age and joined the Labour Party when she was barely out of nappies. The Baroness became actively involved in Labour Party politics in her teens and is a friend of the Windbags. When the Baroness was elected as the MEP for mid and west Wales in 1994, she was the youngest MEP to take her seat. I have found out that a few people in the Labour Party in Wales were not too happy with the way in which the Baroness obtained the nomination for that seat. The Baroness served on the Welsh Labour Party Executive for 10 years and was a founding member of the Yes for Wales Cross party group which campaigned for the Welsh Assembly to be established. So the Baroness knows Ron ‘I was looking for badgers’ Davies, former Secretary of State for Wales, very well indeed. As well as everybody else in the Labour party in Wales, in Westminster and in the Lords. What with not being an insider.

In 2003, there was a big row and accusations of cronyism when the Windbag’s former long-serving SPAD Jan Royall was appointed as Head of the European Union’s office in Wales  at a salary of nearly £90k pa. The job was not advertised externally and there were complaints from the Tories, Plaid and politicians from European parties. Hans-Gert Poettering, leader of the European Christian Democrat and Conservative group, raised the matter with Romano Prodi, the then President of the EU Commission, on the grounds that the move was “an inappropriate political appointment.”. The Vice-President of the European Commission at the time was the Windbag, who stated that:

“I was not involved in the appointment in any way since such procedures and posts are not in my portfolio. I understand that there were other applicants for the post and, in accordance with all the proper rules, Jan Royall was appointed on merit.”

Among the melee, there was one person who defended Royall’s appointment: one Eluned Morgan, now the Baroness of Ely. The Baroness said that Royall ‘had been appointed on merit and maintained that an individual’s affiliation to a political party should not be a reason for excluding them from applying for jobs.’

The two main opposition parties in the Assembly, however, were concerned that Ms Royall’s high profile connections with leading Labour politicians, including the Windbags, would be a barrier to impartiality in the job.

They were particularly concerned that it would be a factor in the run up to the following year’s European elections and repeated their demand that Ms Royall should step down immediately.

Ms Royall, who was expected to represent the EU in Wales and Wales in Brussels, refused to respond to the demands for her resignation and turned down all requests for interviews.

Where is Jan Royall now? She’s in the Lords of course, along with both Windbags and the Baroness of Ely. Jan was Secretary General of the British Labour Group in the European Parliament (1979-1985) and Policy Adviser/Personal Assistant to the Windbag as Leader of the Opposition. Jan became a member of the latter’s Cabinet when he was European Commissioner for Transport (1995-1999) and Vice President of the Commission (1999-2002). Jan was then responsible for the Commission’s relationship with the European Parliament before becoming Head of the European Commission Office in Wales (2003-2004). Jan joined the Lords in 2004 and became a member of the Privy Council in 2008. Having served a Government Whip and Government Spokesperson for Health, International Development and Foreign and Commonwealth Office (2005-2008), she became Government Chief Whip in the Lords in 2008.  Jan entered the Cabinet in 2008 as Leader of the Lords (2008-2010) and held the titles of Lord President of the Council (2008-2009) and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (2009-2010). She was elected as Leader of the Opposition in the Lords in May 2010 and became a member Ed Miliband’s Shadow Cabinet at the same time.

So Jan Royall was Lord President of the Council, 2008-09 and therefore the visitor to Bangor University during that time. Er, would you know anything about the havoc prevailing at Bangor University then Jan, with that massive effort by the paedophiles’ friends to overthrow the Vice-Chancellor via highly questionable means, including that plan to fit him up for a criminal offence? A plan which was largely orchestrated by one Prof Fergus Lowe, who was as nasty as the other paedophiles’ friends but not so thick and he didn’t knock off at 3-30 pm either as was the habit of so many, so Fungus was rather more capable than most of them. See previous posts…

 

Here’s Tony Francis’s friend, delighted that another one of his cronies has bagged a senior position, while Romano Prodi elbows him out of the way:

The ‘Western Mail’ also published the Baroness’s economic policy for Wales. It can be summed up by ‘er, um, er, well, I would increase employment and encourage growth sort of, er, I think’.

How the Baroness will increase employment and encourage growth when all she has ever known is that well-known model of business among Wimmin who tick all the right boxes in the Welsh Labour Party which consists of ‘applying for a pot of money’ she did not explain.

Readers in England who don’t believe me, you have missed out. It was hilarious, wherever you went throughout the 1980s and 90s in Wales there would be a Woman who was Empowering Someone who would explain that they would be applying for a pot of money, which would fund the Co-ordinator and the Support Workers for This Project. Not only would the jobs never be advertised, but when the pot of money was being applied for, there would be an open discussion among the Wimmin with reference to the named Wimmin who’s jobs the pot of money would be funding.

When I finished my PhD, I really thought that I had waved good-bye to the world in which everyone was in hot pursuit of a pot of money. So imagine my surprise when I finally bagged a post-doc job and word got around that I was quite keen on community-things and I began receiving phone calls from Wimmin (who had previously refused to come near me what with me having Complained About The Paedophiles’ Friends) asking me if I had a pot of money that they could apply for. It was funny, but I did draw the conclusion of ‘Christ no wonder we’re all in such a mess’. I even received requests for a pot of money when I was between contracts working for no pay myself. I was friends with a PhD student who knew what was going on and had an excellent sense of the ridiculous, who would also be rolling around with laughter at the notion of the pot of money.

One day a social worker became very angry with me because I did not have access to a pot of money with which to give £300 each to a number of Service User Representatives to enable them to attend a Service Users’ Conference. I explained to the Service User Representatives – who had been told by the social worker that of course there would be a pot of money – that no, I had bugger all money myself, I wasn’t even getting a salary for my work at that time. They snapped at me ‘we really cannot believe that’. My PhD student friend with the sense of humour – who was living in’t shoe box in’t middle of t’road himself – commented that the VC was obviously sitting upstairs in his office lighting his cigars with the £50 notes which had been earmarked for the proverbial pot of money…

Someone should have taken a leaf out of the rocker Bill Drummond’s book and set fire to one million. Jane Hutt would be horrified, that would keep Chwarae Teg going for at least three months.

 

The Baroness raised concerns about the sexist behaviour of one in possession of testicles the other day, namely Sir Roderick Evans. The crime for which the Baroness was castigating Roderick Evans was but very trivial, certainly in comparison to the rest of Sir Roderick’s life’s work, but the Baroness failed to comment on that.

Sir Roderick Evans, or the Honourable Mr Justice Roderick Evans to use his legal title, was called to the Bar in 1970 and was appointed a Queen’s Counsel in 1989. He became a circuit judge in 1992, serving as resident judge for the Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court from 1994 to 1998 and as resident judge for Swansea Crown Court from 1998 to 1999. In 1999 he was appointed a Senior Circuit Judge and Honorary Recorder of Cardiff. Sir Roderick was appointed a High Court Judge of the Queen’s Bench Division in 2001 and between 2004 and 2007 he was Presiding Judge for Wales. He retired from the High Court in April 2013.

Sir Roderick joined Dafydd’s mates as a member of the Gorsedd of Bards in 2002 and since 2011 he has served as a member of the Parole Board. Bluglass and Colin Berry served on the Parole Board. Sir Roderick holds Honorary Fellowships and Awards from Aberystwyth (2003), Swansea (2007) and Bangor (2010) Universities. In 2015, he was elected a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales.

Sir Roderick Evans is Pro-Chancellor of Swansea University Council and is also a member of the Swansea University Court.

So not only has Sir Roderick worked with the maggots who have crawled all over the criminal justice system in Wales for the last four decades while they concealed a network of organised abuse and associated serious crime, but he was Presiding Judge for Wales when Judge Huw Daniel broke the law in court re my own case in 2004 and when that certificate of indictment was forged stating that I had pleaded guilty to a charge of violent disorder at Caernarfon Crown Court when I had not even been charged with such an offence. Ever.

In 2004 Rhodri Morgan was FM. Who’s friends and family run Swansea University.

Sir Roderick: Do you remember that case in the late 1990s in which Dafydd got a rapist off of a prison sentence by giving evidence that the rapist had PTSD? I think that it was at Swansea Crown Court. Your Court Sir Roderick! The rapist was later revealed to have a string of convictions and he assaulted the TV journos on camera after the case. The rapist worked as a solicitor. He left the court as a pillion passenger on his mate’s motorbike without wearing a crash helmet.

 

Since March 2016 Sir Roderick Evans has been Standards Commissioner for the National Assembly of Wales. The Standards Commissioner is an independent person appointed by the National Assembly for Wales, to safeguard standards, to uphold reputations, and to address the public’s concerns about the collection of ex-social workers and Councillors who ignored a vicious paedophile ring for many years.

Meet the Commissioner Sir Roderick Evans:

 

The Baroness’s biggest problem with him? That’s Sir Roderick didn’t find much wrong with a You Tube clip made by UKIP’s Gareth Bennett about Labour’s Joyce Watson ‘which featured Ms Watson’s face superimposed on a woman in a low-cut top’.

In the last few weeks, Simon Thomas, who was until very recently a Plaid AM and before that a Plaid MP, was found guilty of producing indecent images of children and is currently awaiting sentence. The adult son of the Baroness’s colleague and Labour leadership rival Mark Drakeford – Drakeford is a former social worker and Councillor – was jailed for eight years for the violent, prolonged ‘punishment’ rape of a young woman. He also groomed an underaged girl online.

Sir Roderick is investigating a spoof You Tube clip and the Baroness actually thought that it was worth her while bothering to comment about it.

The Baroness’s husband is a GP in south Wales. There is currently an investigation underway into the deaths of 26 babies in the care of Cwm Taf Health Board. I had heard that the maternity care in that Heath Board was dangerous six years ago. Did the Baroness’s husband know about this as well?

 

Here’s another one for the Senedd and the Baroness’s husband. In the late 1990s, one of the UK’s Experts in ‘Control and Restraint’ in Mental Health nursing was one Mike Williams. He was paid a lot of money to go all over the country sharing his expertise. Mike Williams worked as an Angel in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh for decades. He was the charge nurse in Bryn Golau Ward when I was illegally imprisoned there in 1986/87. Mike witnessed Dafydd turning up at gone midnight to ‘visit’ me, when I was in bed. Mike knew that I had been unlawfully arrested and imprisoned. He did not let me out. Mike was told by another Angel to put me in the Dungeon but he realised that I had a brain and he was treading carefully.

Mike had worked at the North Wales Hospital since the mid-1960s. He knew about the lobotomies, the abducted babies, the disappeared, the forged documentation, the trafficking gang and of course that dungeon. Mike knows about the murder of Stephen Bagnall as well (see post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’).

One of the UK’s ‘experts’. It wasn’t a coincidence. Everyone who had the gen on that trafficking gang flourished. They are also the people who are Upholding The Standards.

Tan yn Llyn

Beth am gynnau tan fel y tan yn Llyn?

(Why not light a fire like the fire in the Llyn?)

Tan, Tan, Tan, Tan

(Fire, Fire, Fire, Fire)

As sung by Plethyn

The lines above are from a song about the Penyberth Fire on 8 Sept 1936. Saunders Lewis, D.J. Williams and the Rev Lewis Valentine set fire to the RAF bombing school in Pen Llyn, in what is now Gwynedd, to draw attention to the crisis in the Welsh language and to highlight their beliefs in pacifism. The men were three of the main figures of Plaid Genedlaethol Cymru (The National Party of Wales), now known as Plaid and were intent on damaging the property of the bombing school.

This action has come to be seen as a significant one in the history of the Welsh language. Opposition to the presence of the bombing school in Pen Llŷn was widespread in Wales at the time. Many objected on pacifist and environmental grounds but for Lewis, Williams and Valentine, the school represented the oppression of the English over the Welsh and the imposition of English warmongering and violence on the peaceful Welsh countryside.

All three were notable members of the Party, but they were frustrated at Plaid Cymru’s failure to act since the RAF had announced their intentions in August 1935 and they therefore decided to take matters into their own hands.

Having confessed their crime at Pwllheli Police Station, Lewis, Williams and Valentine were put on trial at Caernarfon on 13 October 1936. The jury were unable to reach a decision and the trial was transferred to the Old Bailey in London, where the three men were sentenced to nine months in prison.

The ‘Fire in Llŷn’ aroused strong feelings. By the time of the second trial in London, Saunders Lewis had been dismissed by his employers at University College, Swansea.  This, the decision to move the case to London and the judge’s scornful treatment of the case at the Old Bailey angered many in Wales.

Following their release from prison on 27 August 1937, Lewis, Williams and Valentine were greeted at Caernarfon pavilion by a crowd of around 12,000.  Such displays of support were seen across Wales, demonstrating the impact the event had on contemporaries, particularly the Welsh-speaking community.

The fire at Pen Llyn made Saunders, Valentine and Williams three of Wales’ most notable political activists.

Saunders Lewis was an academic at what is now Swansea University. Lewis taught Rhodri Morgan’s parents and when Rhodri Morgan’s father began working at Swansea University, Saunders Lewis was one of his senior colleagues. By the mid-1950s, when Dr Dafydd Alun Jones was a medical student at Liverpool University, he was involved with Plaid and Welsh nationalist activism and had forged links with Irish Nationalists to advance this cause (see post ‘A Network Stretching Back Decades?) It was Dafydd who was on hand to record Saunders Lewis’s 1962 ‘Tynged yr Iaith’ speech, the speech which led to the formation of Cymdeithas yr Iaith (the Welsh Language Society). Like Dafydd, Saunders Lewis was a Liverpool graduate. Saunders Lewis was President of Plaid Cymru, 1926-39.

Saunders Lewis was preceded as President of Plaid by Lewis Valentine, who served as Plaid’s first President, 1926-39. Lewis Valentine was born near Conwy and began studying at UCNW but his studies were curtailed by WWI. Valentine became a Baptist Minister, was involved in the Baptist Church across north Wales and edited the Baptist magazine Seren Gomer, 1951-75. In July 1971, Dafydd gave a wonderful speech to the Annual Meeting of the Welsh Baptist Union in which he told them that learning Bible verses as a child in Welsh could well save someone from ‘a serious moral collapse’ in later life (see post ‘A Serious Moral Collapse’). It was years ago that another Empowered Service User observed that Dafydd was the best straight man that he’d ever encountered, although I never worked out who the funny man was, because all the Top Docs who were facilitating the trafficking ring in north Wales played the straight man, they just weren’t as obviously mad as Dafydd, it was Dafydd who always managed to come out with the best lines.

What are the names of your witnesses?’ ‘I’m not going to tell you Dafydd.’ ‘Why not?’ ‘Because you’ll nobble them.’ ‘Don’t be so ridiculous.’

The witnesses were subsequently found dead.

 

Saunders Lewis was succeeded as President of Plaid by Professor J.E. Daniel, 1939-43; Daniel had previously served as Vice-President, 1931-35. J.E. Daniel was a theologian at the Bala-Bangor Theological College and also a schools inspector for north Wales. Daniel was born in Bangor, went to Friars School in Bangor and then Oxford University. J.E. Daniel was the father of Huw Daniel – the corrupt judge who, like his father, came from north Wales and went to Oxford – who was so looking forward to sending me to prison for a long stretch in 2004 on the basis of the perjury of Alun Davies, an NHS manager, a variety of Angels and others (see post ‘Interesting Happenings In The Legal System’).

 

Lewis Valentine died in March 1986; Saunders Lewis in Sept 1985; and D.J. Williams in Jan 1970. So Valentine and Lewis, who knew Dafydd and had links with UCNW, were still alive when Brown and I complained about Gwynne the lobotomist and received threats from Top Doctors in return. Gwynne was from Llandudno (near Conwy) himself and died just a few months after Lewis Valentine; they will have known each other. J.E. Daniel died in a road accident in Flintshire in 1962, but Dafydd will have known him and of course knows his bent judge of a son.

Dr Laurence Chesterman – Behind The Facade – Service ...

My recent post ‘You Know I’m No Good…’ mapped some of the shenanigans in Plaid at the time of the Waterhouse Inquiry and in the aftermath. I had so much to cover in that blog post that I decided to hold my comments relating to one key Plaid figure on Anglesey over until a later post. I am talking about Ieuan Wyn Jones, who was the Plaid MP for Ynys Mon (Anglesey), 1987-01 and the AM for Ynys Mon, 1999-13. Ieuan Wyn Jones was Deputy FM, 2007-11 and served as the Leader of Plaid, 2000-12.

Ieuan Wyn Jones was forced to resign as Plaid President after Plaid’s poor showing in the Welsh Assembly elections in May 2003. He initially issued defiant statement, stating that ‘I’m a fighter not a quitter’, a statement popularised by Peter Mandelson, another politician who remained silent about the organised abuse/trafficking of vulnerable people, but the Party soon forced him to step down as President.

When Ieuan was first elected as the Plaid MP for Ynys Mon at the General Election in June 1987, it was a case of the General Election of High Stakes as a result of the opposition parties believing that there was everything to play for because of the unpopularity of Thatch. That General Election for me was characterised by Dafydd et al laying careful plans in the weeks before to frame me for a serious crime and then attempting to put their plan into action days after Thatch was returned as PM (see posts ‘Workers’ Play Time’ and ‘Security, Security’).

Ieuan was the lucky winner on Ynys Mon partially as a result of Keith Best, the previous Tory incumbent, being imprisoned after pursuing unlawful practices regarding his applications for BT shares. Ieuan will have known what Dafydd et al had tried to do to me in the summer of 1987, because until Ieuan was elected, he worked as a solicitor in north Wales and he was friends with the man who was my solicitor at the time and my battles with Dafydd et al were a topic of open discussion in north Wales. Ieaun will have known that by the time that he stood for Ynys Mon, I had already been unlawfully imprisoned twice by the gang, once at Ysbyty Gwynedd and then at Denbigh. When I was living on Ynys Mon…

Ieuan knew that I was far from alone in having been unlawfully arrested and imprisoned by the gang, but I was the one who was doing a Masters at a London medical school with a partner who was doing a PhD and we would not shut up about it.

Ieuan knew Dafydd and the gang well; he was born in Denbigh himself and his dad was a Minister of religion. I do not know what denomination Ieuan’s father was, but the Nonconformist Ministers in north Wales all know each other and they knew Gwynne the lobotomist, Dafydd and the gang and what they were doing. Dafydd himself, unbelievably, was a big hit with those right across the religious spectrum in north Wales.

Ieuan studied law at Liverpool Poly and then London. He returned to north Wales and worked as a solicitor in Ruthin, just down the road from Denbigh. Ieuan first stood as a Plaid Parliamentary candidate in Denbigh in the 1974 General Election and again for Denbigh in 1979. Denbigh was a town in which virtually every working person was employed either at the North Wales Hospital or in a business which was dependent upon the hospital. There were a huge number of adults of voting age banged up in the North Wales Hospital but they didn’t have votes. Ieuan was not going to worry about them. When Ieuan stood for the 1979 General Election, Mary Wynch was one of those illegally imprisoned in Denbigh, where she watched the Angels enjoying themselves at the live sex shows which Dafydd encouraged the young patients in his ‘personality disorder unit’ to stage.

Ieuan’s late wife Eirian Llwyd is described as a Welsh artist. Eirian didn’t begin her career as an artist. Eirian used to be an Angel! Eirian was born in Prion, which as well as being a protein particle found in the brain when someone has CJD or BSE, is a village very close to the North Wales Hospital. It is likely that somebody in Eirian’s immediate family worked there; even if they did not, they would have been friendly with people who did and would be well-acquainted with at least some of what was going on.

After nursing in Liverpool between 1969-73, Eirian worked as a midwife at St Asaph Hospital. So Eirian was working with the Top Doctors of north Wales who had collectively got together to ensure that it was virtually impossible for women to access abortions on the NHS, although they were always happy to refer women with money to the private clinics in Chester for one. Eirian will have known that women requesting abortions for mental health reasons were sent to Denbigh to be ‘assessed’ by Dafydd, only to be refused one anyway, because no-one could get an abortion on the NHS in north Wales. See post ‘The BMA And It’s Ethics’. Eirian will also have known about the kids in care and vulnerable adults in ‘care settings’ becoming pregnant after they had been sexually exploited or raped by those who were caring for them. Eirian will have known about the most goriest aspect of life in north Wales, a whole aspect of existence of which remained completely unspoken.

In 1974, Eirian married Ieuan and was supportive of his political career, colluding with his silence during the years in which he worked as a lawyer as well as a politician. Llwyd was described as a ‘proud nationalist’ and campaigned alongside Cymdeithas yr Iaith (the Welsh Language Society) between the 1960s and 1970s. So Eirian will have known that breaker of glass ceilings who became the first woman to lead Cymdeithas, the Crack of Doom aka Meri Huws.

Meri is an enthusiastic feminist and after graduating from Aberystwyth University, her life of sisterly solidarity during the 1980s involved Meri working as a social worker for Gwynedd Social Services alongside the paedophile gang when girls at Ty’r Felin, the children’s home on the Crack of Doom’s patch in Bangor, were being raped, sexually assaulted and beaten by the staff and forced to work as prostitutes (see post ‘Are You Local?’). The boys in Ty’r Felin were being physically and sexually abused as well, as were the boys at Ty Newydd, the home for boys at Bangor which was also run by Gwynedd Social Services. Meri knew the appalling Nefyn and June Dodd, about whom hundreds of complaints were made but who never faced any charges. But then neither did Meri, even in more recent years when she worked at Bangor University and was known to be committing driving offences regularly, everything from drink-driving, to speeding, to using her mobile phone as she speeded along pissed. Some of the officers of the North Wales Police had sex with the kids in care as well as with the social workers who were abusing those kids.

Nefyn Dodd used to boast of being friends with Dafydd.

The Crack of Doom subsequently embarked upon her career of shagging men who were big names in Welsh politics. Her former bedfellows include Alun Pugh, the Labour AM for Clwyd West, 1999-07 and Andrew Davies, the Labour AM for Swansea West, 1999-11 and, it is rumoured, Rhodri. See post ‘People With Energy’. Meri professed to be a Labour Party supporter for many years, but caused conversation when some years ago she was reported in the media to be considering switching her allegiance to Plaid. If Ieuan knew which Plaid Minister Meri was shagging at the time, please could he tell us, because we were certainly curious.

The Crack of Doom probably knows quite a lot about the numerous times that I was arrested by her mates in the North Wales Police at the behest of her former colleagues in the trafficking gang.

Eirian Llwyd, like Meri, was full of Wimmin’s love for her sisters, ‘promoting women’s positions in politics and helped reconfigure Plaid’s constitution in the 1980s to secure women in Plaid’s major committees.’ Along with her charidee work, Llwyd established the Rhyl branch of Women’s Aid in the 1970s/80s. Where once more she kept completely silent about the organised abuse and trafficking of girls and women. Rhyl was where Dafydd’s addicts lived as well, so Eirian will have colluded with the massive drug trade that emanated from Dafydd, as well as with the sexual abuse. It will have been those wimmin with no money in Rhyl who were particularly vulnerable to the no-abortions policy in north Wales and to being led up the garden path by the Top Docs who ummed and aahed and talked to them about abortion being a life-changing decision which should not be taken lightly, so it would be for the best if they went to stay at the North Wales Hospital where they could be ‘assessed’ and ‘helped’ by the experts. Dafydd and the traffickers. Well they couldn’t get more pregnant could they?

It was always a real laugh when the Top Docs and Angels talked to patients about them being Helped. Particularly when Dafydd did so. I witnessed patients who had been treated appallingly, absolutely dreadfully – but because they had received no education after the age of 16, or if they were former kids in care had received no education at all, so they had no idea of how many laws had been broken – receiving lectures from Angels about how they were never going to be able to be Helped if they behaved like this (ie. showed clinical symptoms or even just distress). I hit the jackpot, in 1987, days after the General Election, I got Dafydd, at gone midnight in Bangor Police Station, crashing into my cell, where I was being held illegally of course and telling me ‘I don’t think Denbigh really helped ewe last time’. I told Dafydd that being unlawfully arrested, illegally imprisoned and assaulted by a thug doesn’t usually Help anyone and asked him if he really thought that Denbigh was Helping anyone. Dafydd stood up and said ‘well I am not going to offer ewe any Help tonight, I think ewe should be in prrrison’ and flounced out.

A few hours later – no charges against me yet, but there I was still sitting in a police cell – my solicitor, Ieuan Wyn Jones’s mate, Alwyn Jones, turned up and said ‘they’ve told me that DA’s been to see you, what did he say?’ So I repeated to Alwyn, ‘I think ewe should be in prrrrison’. And Alwyn laughed. But Alwyn didn’t address the many laws which had been broken over the previous 12 hours and neither did he address the subsequent perjury of the gang as they desperately tried to secure a conviction against me. Alwyn did find me an independent expert opinion for the court case which followed – from Dr James Earp of the Towers Hospital, Leicester. Earp was one of those who was concealing the trafficking ring in Leicester which included Greville Janner and Frank Beck and was linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Earp of course colluded with Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘An Expert From England’).

Since I began writing this blog, I’ve been told that Alwyn had a lovely manner but he was in with Dafydd’s gang 100% – Alwyn’s then wife was a lawyer who worked for Gwynedd County Council and her father was a police officer with the North Wales Police and a Freemason (see post ‘It’s Just Another Gold Digger’). However, by that time, virtually every Top Doctor in the UK was colluding with Dafydd and the linked gangs, so even if Alwyn had wanted to, he wouldn’t have been able to have found a Top Doctor who would not have concealed the crimes of Dafydd’s gang.

There are so many people who should be in prrrison as a result of all this, that HMP Berwyn is never going to have room for them all. However, may I suggest that they prioritise places for the most serious offenders, such as this man:

Ieuan Wyn Jones
Ieuan Wyn Jones 2011.jpg
Deputy First Minister for Wales
In office
11 July 2007 – 13 May 2011

 

Yma O Hyd!

As Ieuan’s wife is no longer with us, perhaps Ieuan would like to answer the following questions:

What happened to all the babies of the patients who were banged up in Denbigh after becoming pregnant, or indeed the babies of the girls/women who became pregnant while they were in Denbigh? Were they sold or killed? If they were killed, are they in the grounds of Denbigh or elsewhere?

I know of one Denbigh patient who gave birth at St David’s Hospital in Bangor in the mid-1970s who’s baby was unlawfully removed and given to a family in Cheshire, so whoever was involved in this trade in abducted babies was part of Dafydd’s gang’s regular network.

Who was it in north Wales who performed the illegal abortions and what happened to the women who were harmed or died as a result?

I knew about the private clinic in Chester for the women with sufficient funds, but there was someone in north Wales who was carrying out unlawful abortions on women who knew about the ‘Being Helped By Denbigh’ scam and didn’t fall for it. Amazingly enough for me, I never, ever found out who it was, so there must have been something really, really sordid going on for that to be such a well-kept secret. I imagine that the stakes were high because of the women who died and the chain of corrupt professionals who were then involved with concealing that.

Vera Wyn Jones – A BAFTA Winning Movie

When Ieuan was in politics, his special interests were health and education.

Jane Hutt, another Wimmin’s Champ, may be able to help answer my questions. Jane founded Welsh Wimmin’s Aid and will have been Big Sister to whom Eirian and the Wimmin in Rhyl deferred whenever it looked as though the shit bomb was going to explode.

Jane Hutt, a former social worker and the daughter of a Top Doctor, was Wales’s Minister for Health, 1999-05, under Rhodri as FM. Ieuan Wyn Jones later served as Deputy FM under Rhodri, but Jane had been removed as Health Minister by then, as a result of being utterly hopeless. She was replaced by Top Doctor Brian Gibbons, who also concealed the trafficking gang.

Jane Hutt AM (28136581466).jpg

 

Jane has been good mates with Rhodri’s family for years. Rhodri’s wife Julie is another Wimmin’s Champ who worked as a social worker.

Julie Morgan AM (28066509352).jpg

 

Julie’s husband Rhodri used to share a house with the Windbag, when they were nought but Lads enjoying a Few Pints. The Windbag knew what was happening to me at the time of the 1987 General Election as well, he knew Tony Francis when they were at Cardiff University. Tony Francis was the Top Doctor who had rung the police demanding that I should be arrested for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’ days after the Windbag had lost the election anyway.

Cheers! We’re bloody useless and all that toadying to the Top Doctors didn’t even win us the election throughout which we remained silent about Thatcher’s mate Peter Morrison molesting kids in care, because it was Dafydd’s gang who were supplying the kids and we’d been concealing that lot for decades.

Days after the April 1992 General Election, someone decided on a Final Solution and witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal were invited to a party in a building in Brighton and when the party was underway, someone chucked a firebomb into the building. Five people died. Days later, the man who had allegedly confessed to starting the fire was killed when he was hit by a lorry. A few more people who had been at the party were found dead over the following years. See post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’.

 

In 2001, after the publication of the Waterhouse Report, Eirian Llwyd gave up being a Wimmin’s Champ and took up a new vocation, which was probably very wise, what with Eirian needing to distance herself and Wales needing to show that it was a Land of Cultured People rather than child abusers (see post ‘Feet In Chains’). Eirian became an Artist. She graduated at Cardiff Institute, specializing in print. Thereafter she was regularly exhibited in Wales and abroad. Eirian’s success helped co-establish a gallery, The Original Print Place, to promote a number of other Welsh artists.

Llwyd died at Ysbyty Gwynedd in 2014 after a short battle with cancer. In January 2015 it was announced that a Memorial Fund would be set up in her name to provide grants for new Welsh artists that specialize in printmaking.

 

My recent post ‘You Know I’m No Good…’ discussed Sir Anthony Meyer, the Tory MP for Clwyd North West, 1970-92, who in 1983 did battle with the dreadful Beata Brookes, when Beata and her supporters tried to oust Sir Anthony from his seat to enable Beata to succeed Sir Anthony. Beata Brookes was a hard-right Thatcherite, who was a key facilitator of Dafydd’s gang; she had formerly worked as a social worker for Denbighshire County Council and cluttered up many an NHS and Social Services committee in north Wales, as well as charidees for the disabled. Brookes was from a wealthy farming family in north Wales and her male relatives were enthusiastic Freemasons. Her brother held leading roles in the FUW and other organisations concerned with landowning and rural pursuits. Accounts of the Brookes family business interests have a strong whiff of dirty dealings with the local authorities. Brookes served as a Tory MEP, 1979-89 but when she was elderly she gave up with the Tories and joined UKIP. For more details on the deeply unpleasant Beata, see post ‘The Celtic Iron Lady And Yet More Recent History’.

The all-out war which took place in the Tory Party in the Clwyd North West constituency in 1983 was a wonder to behold, even by the standards of politics in Wales; those involved deserved some sort of Lifetime Achievement Award. Sir Anthony Meyer eventually triumphed, but he had a battle on his hands with rigged ballots, much unpleasantness, appeals to Cecil Parkinson at Conservative Central Office to sort the mess out and legal action.

Clwyd North West is a bit of a hot potato because, as described in previous posts, it covers an area where many of the more senior people who facilitated or concealed Dafydd’s gang lived/live: corrupt police officers/lawyers/Top Docs/senior figures in the local authorities. By 1983, Mary Wynch and her litigation against Dafydd and his accomplices were on their way to the Master Of The Rolls, Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass had rewritten the Mental Health Act and Dafydd’s other mate William Bingley had written the accompanying Code of Practice to reassure the world that It Could Never Happen Again and there were now Safeguards Against Mad Old Doctors. Meanwhile the show had to go on, that trafficking ring needed to stay in business and the North Wales Hospital Denbigh was still full of the gang’s victims who were illegally incarcerated in Dafydd’s Denbigh Dungeon.

Cherie and the Radical Lawyers were busy in London developing their Consciences as their mates sat on the Inner London Borough Councils, the GLC, the ILEA etc developing their careers in the Labour Party and everyone remained schtum as the Inner London Boroughs sent hundreds of kids to the north Wales children’s homes (see post ‘More Dogs That Did Not Bark’)…

I mentioned in previous posts how towards the end of 1993, I wrote to Michael Mansfield and his Radical Conscience regarding what was happening to me at the hands of Gwynedd Social Services. At the time, the London-based media were reporting that a North Wales Police investigation had found ‘no evidence’ to support allegations of a paedophile ring in the region at all, yet alone one being concealed at the highest levels of society. Michael Mansfield wrote me a one line reply thanking me for my letter but made no comment on what had been happening to me. I heard no more. I realised many years later when it dawned on me how huge the collusion with the wrongdoing in north Wales had been, that Michael Mansfield probably got on the phone to his mates the minute that he received my letter to send up the Lefties In Distress flare. Doh! He wouldn’t have even needed to have waited for my letter; I had been given Michael Mansfield’s address by my solicitor in Bangor, Alwyn Jones, after I told him that I was bloody sick of Dafydd et al and that I wanted to let Michael Mansfield know what was happening to people in north Wales.

Illumination flares being used during military training exercises

 

A conventional flare pistol. This particular model uses 26.5 mm flares (manufactured by Patel Ballistics. Perhaps by Dr Rashmi Patel, the oppressed junior doctor who worked for Rashmi Varma, latterly of St George’s Hospital Medical School, before Rashmi Varma returned to India after that appearance in front of the GMC as a result of Varma demanding that NHS fertility patients donate eggs to private patients or you won’t be getting any treatment luv).

 

Varma was doing a fiddle with the semen supplies as well but I never worked out what it was. She did all that she could not to build up a sufficient supply of sperm donors at St George’s and used the ‘shortage’ of donors as an excuse to buy very expensive semen samples in from one of the private hospitals; I think it was the London Bridge. Or the London Bridge might have been the hospital that Varma fell out with, thus resulting in the order being given to another private hospital. Whichever private hospital was supplying that semen, the bill was being footed by the NHS.

Perhaps someone could also let us know why Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain footed the bill for Deb Everard, an idiot without a degree who couldn’t make it into the lab most days, but who knew about the paedophile ring which Chamberlain and his colleagues were concealing, to attend expensive fertility conferences at which she ingratiated herself to this man:

YOUR LIFE IN THEIR HANDS

And didn’t I fucking know it, it’s why I’m in hiding

 

 

 

Regular readers will know that I have always been most grateful to Sir Anthony Myers for preventing Beata Brookes from entering the Commons and for his challenge to Thatcher’s leadership in 1989, when he stood as a ‘stalking horse’ against her. He was widely ridiculed at the time and his challenge of course failed, but Sir Anthony did pave the way for the later subsequent successful challenge to Thatch and her departure in Nov 1990, a merciful release for Britain – or so we thought.

Where’s that barrel of wine, we’re celebrating:

Margaret Thatcher: The tantrums, the tears and the ...

 

I have now been digging further and as is usually the case, things were much, much worse than I thought and although Sir Anthony’s battles with Beata Brookes and Thatch were much appreciated, the welfare of the victims of the trafficking gang was definitely not one of Sir Anthony’s concerns.

Sir Anthony did have political concerns; he did his best to protect his constituents from Thatcher’s economic policies which were wrecking Wales. Sir Anthony voted against the closure of the Shotton steelworks and he also supported the production of the Airbus A300B, the wings of which were made in his constituency at the British Aerospace factory at Broughton.

Sir Anthony’s other concern was Europe. He was out of step with the Thatcherite contingent of the Tory Party, not only because he was a ‘wet’, but because he was very, very pro-Europe, indeed European integration was his main interest.

By the time that Sir Anthony fought Beata Brookes in 1983, I had not yet encountered the dreadful Gwynne, but I was in the hands of Dr D.G.E. Wood, the GP at the Student Heath Centre at UCNW, who was facilitating the gang from that location. I didn’t know this at the time, but the gang had already targeted me because of me sharing a house in Port Dinorwic with Frank Jones, a man who had grown up in care in north Wales and who was under the control of the gang. They had seen ‘the English girl’ with weird hairstyles coming and going at Frank’s house and had been on my trail. Then, as I described previously, the gang had clocked Brown and me going to the Arts Lab in Birmingham, which had a contingent of gender benders who were regulars. We’d gone to see the film ‘Pink Flamingo’ which the Arts Lab were screening and because it starred Divine, there was a whole load of transvestites out in force that evening. The gang got overexcited at seeing Brown and me there and I am told targeted me.

Dafydd’s gang in north Wales/Cheshire had strong links with the West Midlands. A great many children in care in the West Midlands were sent to children’s homes in north Wales and people who tried relocating to north Wales to escape the West Midlands branch of the gang found themselves ruthlessly destroyed if they were witnesses to the wrongdoing of the gang. There were/are a great many Brummies in Barmouth, but there was a family from Birmingham in Hen Llandegfan, the village where I used to live on Anglesey, who’s lives were ruined by Dafydd’s gang (see post ‘Amber Rudd, The Miners’ Strike And A Memory Jogged’).

I didn’t know anything about the paedophile gang when I moved into Frank’s house. Frank had a very difficult life, his house caught fire – it caught fire again at a later date – his dog was shot and he constantly got the sack from jobs without any explanation. I wondered if he had done something or was doing something that I didn’t know about, but it was of course the gang. Every time I asked Frank’s girlfriend or his mates why all these things were happening, they just used to say that people ‘didn’t like him’ because ‘he’d grown up in care’ and he was ‘having a lot of bad luck’. Years later as the gang systematically wrecked the lives of my friends and I, we too were described as having a lot of bad luck and third parties were told that people didn’t like us.

When Brown and I found out about the paedophile gang it all slotted into place, as did something else – Frank’s obsession with porn. I never worked out why Frank had an orientation to porn more like that of a 14 year old boy than an adult man with a partner…

Years later, one day in Llangefni, I bumped into Gwenllian, who had been Frank’s girlfriend when I lodged at his place. We recognised each other and she told me that Frank had gone abroad where his ‘bad luck’ stopped and as far as she knew, he was now leading a happy life. The problem then, I have been told, was that Gwenllian may well have been approached by the gang. Gwenllian was living and working in Llangefni, which at the time – 1999/2000 – was totally controlled by Dafydd’s drug dealers. Dafydd lived about three miles away. I was back living on Anglesey as well at that time, at Malltraeth. One of Dafydd’s drug addicts, who was also a dealer, was the daughter of the man who mowed my lawn and lived in Malltraeth as well. The mental health services were still constantly hassling me and my documents show that behind the scenes they were frantic and desperate to show the world just how dangerous I was. Of course they were, the Waterhouse Report was about to be published.

It was when I was living at Malltraeth that I was threatened and assaulted by some chavs, a case that the police refused to investigate. I was then investigated myself by the DSS for fiddling benefits, which was the result of another carefully planned stitch-up by those we know and love (see post ‘More Dogs That Did Not Bark’).

OK then Top Docs. Chew on this. As I explained in my post ‘More Dogs That Did Not Bark’, when I was accused of fiddling the DSS, I had been told that it was legal for me to work a certain number of hours per week under the therapeutic earnings scheme and that’s what I was doing. I previously mentioned that I was working in the notorious chicken factory at Llangefni, Grampian Meats (usually known by its former name of Chucky Chickens). Not a place that an Angel or a social worker would be seen dead in, after all they’ve been Trained, but as an Empowered Service User with an MSc who knew what those worthless scumbags in the mental health services did to people, I did not run away screaming from others who worked in places like Chucky Chickens. The workers in Grampian Meats of course showed the Spirit of the Blitz, they were all having a hard time and were really friendly. So I found out how many laws were being broken in Grampian Meats. Although I could hardly miss it – because the machines were being run without the appropriate guards on them, workers were constantly getting injured and sometimes quite seriously. This was such a common occurrence that there were notices on the factory floor, with a list of the compensation that workers would be paid if they were injured. And it was not very much. As I remember it was £1000 for losing a finger and DEATH, DEATH, was £10k to your relatives. Totally inadequate, but who working at Grampian Meats could ever have afforded the legal representation necessary to sue the company?

The Top Docs knew what was going on, because accidents at Grampian were so common that there was an injured worker taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd at least every week. Serious injuries as well, the Grampian workers weren’t sensitive flowers like those in the paedophile gang, they didn’t have to go on a Mindfulness retreat at Trigonos every three weeks for a bit of Me Time and they didn’t ring the police if someone said ‘bugger’ in front of them, as Dafydd did when I said bugger. And wanker as well, we mustn’t forget that. Bugger and wanker, according to Dafydd and Bluglass, that meant that I was ‘mentally  abnormal’ and, Bluglass assured Dafydd, I would ‘end in a ward for the criminally insane’, which Dafydd Alun Poe dutifully recorded upon my records was a ‘chilling prediction’.

I was only at Grampian for about five weeks and sure enough, someone lost a finger when I was there. We used to sit in the canteen on our break and whatever injury had occurred the previous day would be discussed.

 

Some years ago, a member of staff at Ysbyty Gwynedd slipped on a floor. They had a nasty fall but nothing was broken. I was told that the North West Wales NHS Trust coughed up £15 k in compensation. Of course they did, claims from staff were usually settled generously and quickly if the staff concerned reminded the Chief Exec Martin Jones how much wrongdoing at that hospital they knew about.

Another person I know of sued the Arfon Community Mental Health Team for invading his privacy, on the grounds that he was filmed by some CCTV cameras without his consent. He wasn’t an Empowered Service User, his partner was. He was violent towards her, he knew how badly the Arfon CMHT had neglected her and furthermore, before she was incapacitated, she had been a sex worker. Now I wonder who put her up to that? I was told that the wife beater/pimp was the lucky winner of several thousand quid.

Somebody else who hit the jackpot with the NHS in north Wales was the serially sacked Angel, Dee Jones aka Dee Gray (see post ‘Little Shop Of Horrors’).

 

 

Like Ysbyty Gwynedd, Grampian Meats was a very ruthless employer, I was told how even senior managers disappeared overnight without explanation. When I was there, I used to clean the office of a senior manager called Hadyn, who was very popular with the workers and used to chat to me as I cleaned his room. I went in one day and someone said ‘oh well Hadyn’s gone now, he was ordered to clear his office yesterday’. Indeed Hadyn had gone, he was never accused of any wrongdoing, he just went. Shortly after, the secretary of the new man who replaced him – a man from London called Dave – started making trivial complaints about my work.

‘It has been drawn to my attention that you did not dust the skirting board yesterday.’

Well no-one needed to draw it to my attention that you were a dim little woman wearing sad clothes who moved in on me the minute that Hadyn was out of the door. It was at the same time that someone from the mental health services told the DSS that I was unlawfully working at Grampian, after Dr Tony Francis told me that he’d OK’d it with the DSS for me to start a part-time job there.

Machines without guards. Workers losing fingers. Laughingly small compensation payments for serious injuries. Managers sacked at a moment’s notice.

What was going on then Mafia?

Perhaps the Top Docs at Ysbyty Gwynedd could tell us why they didn’t draw attention to the constant injuries being incurred by Grampian workers. Or indeed Anglesey County Council, because they knew what was happening at Grampian. I’m sure the man who was both the MP and AM for Ynys Mon at the time did as well:

His special interests were health and education. He was Leader of Plaid while workers at Grampian Meats were losing fingers and while Llangefni and Holyhead were run by Dafydd’s drugs gang.

‘We didn’t know.’

 

 

So Sir Anthony Meyer slayed the dragon that was Beata Brookes, shortly after the gang had clocked my presence in north Wales and were in hot pursuit. Furthermore, D.G.E. Wood knew that Brown and I were meeting people who had been damaged and abused by the Top Doctors. Whether Sir Anthony had any idea of that I do not know. But when Sir Anthony moved in to take a shot at Thatch in 1989, he definitely would have known about me, because I, Brown and other witnesses were well under attack by then. Our friend Anne Vernon had been killed and our two friends working in the media in London were also under attack from gangsters (see post ‘The Turn Of The Screw’) .

We were being arrested, threatened and harassed by the Top Doctors and befriended and/or hassled by all these crazy characters whom I have described in previous posts eg. Patricia Margaret Edwards, Naomi Grunfell, Leslie Gore etc, who were undercover MI5/police officers. Those in Somerset who knew what was happening to me were beginning to receive huge sums of money in return for their silence (see post ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’), except for my father, who had been ousted from his job in Somerset, relocated to Nottingham and was being worked to death (see post ‘Jennifer’s Diary’) and had been told a la Michael Carr MP (see post ‘News From Sicily’) that he ‘definitely hadn’t had a heart attack’ by the odious Dr Matthews of Nether Stowey, when he most definitely had.

My post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’ discussed how the career of Janet Mitchell, a female engineer from Somerset with whom I used to play with when we were young, took a sudden upward turn after the Westland Crisis and the subsequent weakening of Thatcher caused by Heseltine resigning from the Cabinet. Janet worked for Westland until she moved onto grander things…

So imagine my surprise when I read that Sir Anthony Meyer was friends with Michael Heseltine and only stood as the stalking horse against Thatch because he expected Tarzan to step in as the REAL candidate. The Sir Anthony who had been so supportive of the British Aerospace factory at Broughton in his constituency and their manufacture of the wings for the Airbus300B.

Tarzan. Who came from Swansea. Who had served as the Tory MP for Tavistock, 1966-74, when Jeremy Thorpe was busy in north Devon inciting the murder of Norman Scott. Or not. As the case may be, as Peter Cook observed. Tarzan who was a leading light in Thatch’s Gov’t, when Sir Peter Morrison was in that Gov’t. Tarzan’s daughter Annabel was at Durham University in the 1980s, when Durham University was full of people who were concealing the gang in the north east which was linked to Dafydd et al, which supplied children and staff to Dafydd’s gang. Annabel might not have noticed if she was a normal student, but she had a father who was desperate to be PM and the whole family were as equally desperate for that to happen as well. Annabel Heseltine became a journo. Furthermore, Anabel likes the world of celebs and parties, she was featuring in gossip columns when she was at Durham, in articles with titles like ‘The Cabinet Ministers’ Beautiful Daughters’ and there would be a photo of a pissed Annabel, wearing a ballgown, at somewhere near floor level because she’d fallen off a piece of furniture.

Just after Cameron became leader of the Tories, all the old Thatcherites came out of the closet in which they had secreted themselves for years and marvelled over how Dave was going to bring the Tories into a new dawn. One such person to give an interview was Michael Heseltine who chortled away as he remembered his first meeting with Cameron. Cameron was comatose at the time, flat out on Heseltine’s floor after Anabel had held one of those parties for which the Cabinet Ministers’ Beautiful Daughters were famed.

Dwunk! Ho ho, but I’m sure that he’ll be an excellent Pwime Minister.

It wasn’t just booze that your daughter’s chums enjoyed Heseltine, have you forgotten about your colleague Paul Channon’s daughter and the circumstances of her death at the dreaming spires, along with the prison sentences that were subsequently handed down? See post ‘Is The Party Over Yet?’

Annabel is not Kate Adie, she is a fashion journalist.

 

In 1984, Durham University gave Professor Eric Sunderland to UCNW as the Principal, because there was such trouble on Sir Charles Evans’s watch at UCNW. The Eric who was a well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend, as equally well-camouflaged as Sir Anthony Meyer.

Readers will know that I didn’t realise that Eric Sunderland was in camouflage until recently, but I have been told that Eric knew all about me and that he never forgot the undergrad who wrote to him about Gwynne the lobotomist. I met Eric many years later, when I was doing my PhD, because Professor Sunderland was doing the polite chit-chat and glasses of wine bit with the people who were attending the function that I was at. I am told that Eric found out that it was me whom he had met. That was just before all hell broke out at Bangor University, when the paedophile gang launched a full scale attack on the VC then in post in an attempt to remove him from his position, what with him, his wife and one of his mates having spilt the pints of the paedophile gang. The gang then then really went for the jugular after the VC’s wife died while she was in the ‘care’ of the paedophiles’ friends at The Walton Centre. See previous posts eg. ‘More Dogs That Did Not Bark.’

I know that that the services of Eric Sunderland were definitely being requested to remove Merfyn Jones from his job, although I don’t know what was said to Eric and what he did in response. The person who wanted to seek the assistance of the well-camouflaged one was the retired Head of IT at Bangor University, a man called Terry. Terry was from Anglesey and his dad had been a Top Doctor at the C&A Hospital in Bangor. Furthermore when Terry had worked at UCNW, he had been one of the AUT reps and it was Terry who had defended one of the paedophiles’ friends in the face of disciplinary action after allegations of unfair practice, one Professor Glyn Williams. Glyn Williams was remembered as the most frightful bully who made the lives of certain people utterly miserable. He was the umbrella for Dr Delyth Morris, the corrupt former Gwynedd social worker who bagged a job as an academic at UCNW, a job which she very obviously couldn’t do. I was told that Dr Duckula Morris owed her career and her PhD to Glyn Williams. Like Duckula, Glyn hated English people, particularly those who owned second homes in Gwynedd. Like Duckula, Glyn Williams had a second home in France. See post ‘Badlands’ for more Duckula-related memories.

It was Glyn Williams and Duckula who led the charge against the senior sociologist Graham Day at UCNW in the early 1990s on the basis of allegations of anti-Welsh racism which they knew to be wholly untrue. Dafydd and the gang had been obliged to swing into action because of the North Wales Police investigation into the paedophile gang causing such bad PR for the gang and their accomplices in UCNW (see post ‘Badlands’).

There ain’t nothing like a Dame Esther. To whom I wrote in 1988, supplying full details of the abuses of Dafydd et al at the North Wales Hospital. Esther didn’t reply; she was too busy ignoring the calls to Childline from kids in north Wales, marvelling over suggestively shaped root vegetables and getting those young men with curly hair on ‘That’s Life’ to Ring The Gas Board.

‘First, Dr Dafydd Alun Jones ran a trafficking gang.’

‘So we rang the Gas Board. Who said: We’re sorry. This has nothing to do with us.’

‘Then, Dr Dafydd Alun Jones unlawfully arrested and imprisoned Mary Wynch.’

‘So we rang the Gas Board. And they said: We’re sorry. This has nothing to do with us.’

‘Then, Dr Dafydd Alun Jones unlawfully arrested and imprisoned Sally Baker.’

So we ran the Gas Board. And they said: ‘We’re sorry. This has nothing to do with us.’

Then Dr Dafydd Alun Jones tried to bribe Sally, when Brown was listening to the call.’

‘So we rang the Gas Board. They said: We’re sorry, this has nothing to do with us.’

‘Then someone tried to kill Sally, having already killed Anne.’

‘So we rang the Gas Board. They said: We’re sorry, this has nothing to do with us.’

‘Then someone tried to kill Brown.’

‘So we rang the Gas Board. They said: We’re sorry, this has nothing to do with us.’

‘Then someone tried to kill Brown’s brother.’

‘So we rang the Gas Board. They said: We’re sorry, but this has absolutely nothing to do with us.’

 

Could any of this possibly have been to do with this man, rather than the Gas Board?

Now… Cyril:

Would that be Smith or Fletcher?

 

‘That’s Life’ in the mid-1980s might have been interested to know that on Anglesey, there was a connection between the Gas Board and Dafydd’s gang. When my friends and I lived in our shared house at Hen Llandegfan, there was a rather unpleasant family who lived in a sizeable ostentatious bungaloid behind us. Both the parents were NHS administrators for Gwynedd Health Authority. I don’t know what their names were, but they worked at the addresses which appeared at the top of the letters which Gwynedd Health Authority used to send me, refusing to investigate my complaints or release my medical records. The documents extracted by my lawyers many years later also have those addresses on, but are far, far more incriminating, detailing serious crime. One of the addresses was Eryldon, which was a Gwynedd Health Authority building in Caernarfon and the other was Preswylfa, a Gwynedd Health Authority building in Bangor.

The two NHS administrators drove expensive but boring cars and never mentioned a word to us about my battles with the NHS, but they became more and more hostile to everyone in our house, so much so that my house mates started wondering why our neighbours were so horrible. The pen pushers of the paedophile gang had a young adult son who worked for the Gas Board who was a total wanker, who used to drive very dangerously around Anglesey, as well as a younger teenager, Susan. There was one hell of a mushroom cloud when it transpired that Susan was pregnant and either hadn’t realised or hadn’t felt able to tell anyone. Susan was a school girl and she won’t have had the money for the private abortion clinic at Chester. Susan was growing a very visible bump and it eventually dawned on Mr and Mrs Pen Pusher what the situation was and for the last months of her pregnancy Susan was placed in purdah and wasn’t seen again until she was pushing the baby around the village.

It was grim and sad and not how someone should be treated when pregnant and it was more like 1955 than 1984, but that was the sodding Top Doctors for you. At least Susan wasn’t sent to Denbigh to be Helped by Dafydd, Mr and Mrs Pen Pusher weren’t going to let that happen, that was for Other People.

Mr and Mrs Pen Pusher were living next door to us because our house was a former vicarage and our landlords had built bungaloids over the extensive vicarage garden and then flogged them off. I always liked our landlords and I haven’t seen them for years, but yes, I’ve been told that the gang went after them. They would have been vulnerable to being threatened, blackmailed or bribed, because they were an Anglesey family and their elderly frail parents lived next door to us, while our landlords worked in the Middle East as academics.

Dr Gwilym Parry-Jones, the father of the family, had previously been a physics lecturer at UCNW and his wife Jean had taught at Bangor Technical College, which she freely admitted was a terrible institution. It became Coleg Menai in about 1986 and was ‘refurbished’ but because the paedophiles’ friends were still managing the place, there was of course no improvement and the local teenagers began an exodus to other colleges.

The Parry-Jones’s had four children. David went to school at Rydal and then I think went to UCNW to do a degree; Gwen went to Penrhos College, did physics at Manchester and then got a job at Wylfa, the nuclear power station on Anglesey. Gwen received massive UK-wide publicity at one point because she went on a round the world yacht race and I think that Wylfa sponsored her.

How were they persuaded to do that then Dafydd?

The two younger children, Adrian and Arthur, went to Rugby School. Adrian did medicine and now features on  Manchester University’s website, which tells us that:

Dr Adrian Parry-Jones is an NIHR Clinician Scientist and Senior Lecturer in Vascular Neurology in the Division of Cardiovascular Sciences and is an Honorary Consultant Neurologist at the Greater Manchester Comprehensive Stroke Centre, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.

Adrian trained in Medicine at the University of Manchester and undertook clinical training in the North West and London. He was awarded an MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship to undertake his PhD investigating the role of brain temperature in interleukin-1 mediated ischaemic brain injury. He completed his training in Neurology and Stroke Medicine in the North West and in Melbourne, Australia and commenced his current NIHR Clinician Scientist Award in March 2015.

Tony and Sadie Francis, who assisted Dafydd in facilitating the trafficking gang, both worked as Top Doctors at Manchester University and Sadie is a Manchester graduate. Adrian Parry-Jones was training/qualifying as a Top Doctor during the Waterhouse Inquiry. At Manchester, Adrian is part of the Lydia Becker Institute of Immunology and Inflammation, which includes a Centre funded by Wellcome.

 

The village in which we lived, Llandegfan, was a popular spot for Top Docs. D.G.E. Wood lived there, as did the corrupt Terry Maxwell, the Clinical Director of Ysbyty Gwynedd and the Drs Francis didn’t live a million miles away either.

 

With that lot breaking out across north Wales, there was no way that Sir Anthony Meyer would not have got wind of it all. Particularly as Sir Anthony was a member of the security services.

Sir Anthony was the son of Sir Frank Meyer, who was the Tory MP for Great Yarmouth and the Vice-Chair of De Beers. Sir Anthony’s grandfather was Sir Carl Meyers, who worked for Rothschilds and later for De Beers and was the Governor of the National Bank of Egypt. Sir Carl was given his baronetcy for his huge donations to found a National Theatre in Britain.

Sir Anthony went to Eton – like his father and grandfather before him – and inherited the baronetcy at the age of 15, when his father died in a hunting accident. Sir Anthony spent a year at New College, Oxford, but withdrew. After serving in WWII he joined the Treasury and worked mostly on winding up the affairs of the Polish Gov’t in exile in London. Sir Anthony once observed that the greater part of his work had consisted of visiting Polish people in mental asylums. So Sir Anthony knew who were in asylums during the middle years of the 20th century and he knew that it wasn’t only people who were hopelessly mad.

There was a Polish community in north Wales. I met one the older members in the Hergest Unit in about 2001. The Hergest whistleblower and his colleague – who was forced out of her job before he was – discovered that this elderly Polish lady was not ‘mentally ill’, although she’d been sectioned. She had simply spent her whole life in the Polish home at Pwhelli and couldn’t speak English. Her distress at not being able to communicate with a Top Doctor had resulted in her being sectioned. That wasn’t a one off either. At about the same time, the Hergest hosted an elderly French lady who couldn’t speak English. There she was surrounded by Angels who were shouting at her to stop being so nasty to them ooh and she has long finger nails as well, she might scratch us, so we’ll cut them. She hadn’t ‘scratched’ anyone, she was an 80 year old lady and no-one could speak the same language as she did. Well one person could chat to her when he was on duty – the Hergest whistleblower. He is half French and is fluent, so he sat down and chatted away to her. She didn’t scratch him either, but no doubt the potential scratching of Angels had already been recorded as a Violent Attack on an Angel by a Dangerous Patient.

Whenever the North West Wales NHS Trust received a complaint from an Empowered Service User, Martin Jones, the Chief Exec, would invariably send a reply in which the complainant was told that they had had been ‘threatening and aggressive’. Martin used this phrase so often that eventually reading letters from him was like encountering a particularly dysfunctional parrot who just squawked ‘threatening and aggressive, threatening and aggressive’ repeatedly.

I’m delighted to say that with Martin’s departure from the north Wales NHS – Martin has now been given responsibility for leading the investigation of NHS complaints on a Wales-wide basis – the Angels, or at least the Angels of Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, have identified a new source of trauma from the Empowered Service Users. That is, speaking to an Angel in an Abrupt Manner. I had an e mail from an Angel at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd yesterday who was very angry after reading one of the cases featured on this blog. It was a case that caused a major scandal and even found its way onto the main BBC and the London-based media, but as the Angel who wrote to me explained, she was on duty at the time and she could tell me that not only was the lady who’s case had been featured in the UK media Abrupt In Her Manner to Angels, but furthermore this lady had Been Aloof when she was a patient. The Angel told me that this lady could have afforded to pay for private treatment and that is what she should have done if the NHS wasn’t good enough for her.

The Angel who wrote to me doesn’t seem to have noticed that she is working for a Health Board in special measures after it hosted Tawel Fan, the worse patient abuse scandal that there has ever been in the UK. Don’t want to be left crawling around naked on a floor covered with faeces and urine while the Angels swear at you and discuss their sex lives? Well bloody well go private then; as the Angels used to snap at everyone in Denbigh ‘it’s not a holiday camp you know’. No it was a dungeon full of the victims of a trafficking gang.

Dafydd and the Top Docs own and manage virtually all the private care in north Wales, so it’ll be out of the frying pan into the fire if one does go private. You’ll pay thousands a week to be abused and neglected as opposed to getting it all free on the NHS.

 

After Sir Anthony Meyer waved a fond farewell to visiting people in asylums who should not have been there, he joined the diplomatic service. He was appointed to the British Embassy in Paris, 1951-56 and then was posted to Moscow. Sir Anthony really hated it in Moscow, the food and drink and culture wasn’t what it should have been for a man of nobility and taste. Fortunately for Sir Anthony, the British Gov’t flew him and his family home after he reported that the Ruskies has attempted to compromise him. Sir Anthony was ‘lured into a cab’ by a femme fatale and as soon as he was in there, he was joined by a KGB officer. Or that was Sir Anthony’s account at least.

Sir Anthony then worked for the Foreign Office, concerning himself mainly with softening up the British public to accepting entry to the Common Market, 1958-62. Sir Anthony was a very keen European and in 1962 he resigned from the Foreign Office and went to work – unpaid because he had a private income – for the Common Market Campaign led by Liberal peer Gladwyn Jebb.

Sir Anthony decided to enter politics, but was torn between the Liberals and the Tories. In the end he plumped for the Tories because of his admiration for Harold Macmillan. At the time Supermac was embroiled in the Profumo Affair as well as the fall-out from other scandals pivoting around spies and sex. See post ‘In Memoriam – Bronwen, Lady Astor’.

Sir Anthony was elected as the Tory MP for Eton and Slough – home from home there then – in 1964, but lost the seat in 1966. He began looking for another seat but his extreme liberalism had made him almost untouchable in the Tory Party. Eventually a fellow old Etonian, Nigel Birch, came to Sir Anthony’s rescue and recommended that Sir Anthony should succeed him in the constituency of West Flintshire, which later became Clwyd North West. Sir Anthony was elected for West Flintshire in 1970.

In 1970, John Allen had just opened the Bryn Alyn Community and the long-standing abuse ring in north Wales was going into business big time. Published accounts tell us that Sir Anthony got to know his prospective constituency well and spent much time in the area studying every aspect of the community. He will have known about Dafydd and the paedophiles. Furthermore, Sir Anthony’s father-in-law was a barrister who knew the corrupt lawyers who were colluding with Dafydd. Sir Anthony could not have missed what was going on in West Flintshire.

 

Nigel Birch, who was the only Tory prepared to give Sir Anthony a break, is considered to have been one of the key people who put the boot into Macmillan, weakening him to such an extent that Macmillan didn’t recover and his Gov’t fell a few years later. It seems a little odd that Sir Anthony, who claimed to be a big admirer of Macmillan, would have accepted such a kind offer from the person who laid the first deathly blow on Macmillan. So someone probably told porkies somewhere.

Nigel Birch – later Lord Rhyl – had the dirt on those in high places, which preceded the dirt of Dafydd et al, although Dafydd et al built their empire on the dirt which Nigel Birch had knowledge of. Nigel Birch had served as Secretary of State for Air, 1955-57, under PMs Anthony Eden and then Macmillan and was married to Esme Glyn, the daughter of the 4th Baron Wolverton, Frederick Glyn. Glyn was a Tory peer who had served in the Tory administration of Arthur Balfour as Vice-Chamberlain of the Household, 1902-05. So Nigel Birch’s wife’s family were aristocrats who were close to the Royal Family and Birch had served in Gov’t with responsibilities regarding the MoD while Lord Louis Mountbatten was First Sea Lord… See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’ for further details of the Naughtiness in High Places which swirled around Mountbatten when he was First Sea Lord.

A brief perusal of Nigel Birch’s life and career throws up many of the names with whom Trumpers was associated (see post ’95 Glorious Years’). The Trumpers who as a junior Health Minister did the dirty deed of appointing Jimmy Savile to the task force which ran Broadmoor. Edwina and Ken Clarke knew what Trumpers had done and didn’t block or undo it, but Trumpers was the culprit although she kept a very low profile when the Savile scandal erupted and let Edwina Currie take the blame (see posts ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’ and ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’.)

 

Nigel Birch and Sir Anthony would have known another Posh Man in north Wales who was both a friend of the paedophile gang and the father of one of them – Lloyd Tyrell-Kenyon, the 5th Baron Kenyon. Lord Kenyon’s son Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon was known to be sexually abusing at least one boy in the care of the social services but was allowed to continue doing this. Thomas eventually made a complaint that this boy had stolen from him after they’d spent the night together. The boy was sent to a detention centre. Thomas did not face any action, although he had been quite upfront about why he had spent the night with the boy. Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon died from HIV/AIDS in 1993. Thomas and his father died just weeks apart.

Lord Kenyon was President of UCNW; Chairman of Clwyd Health Authority; a Flintshire County Councillor; a member of the North Wales Police Authority; a Director of Lloyd’s Bank; the most senior Freemason in north Wales; and had responsibility for the Flintshire Record Office, ie. access to the personal data of a great many people. Lord Kenyon held many other positions as well, many of them connected with arts/literature/museums. See previous posts, including ‘A Bit More Paleontology’.

 

Sir Anthony became a wealthy man in the early 1960s after he received his inheritance from his mother. He became a Lloyds underwriter in 1961 and received a substantial income from that.

Sir Anthony served as the PPS to his friend Maurice Macmillan, 1970-74, who was at the time the Chief Secretary to the Treasury. In the early 1960s, Maurice Macmillan, son of Harold, held a senior position in a pig farming investment business which resulted in a lot of farmers being fleeced. The business was widely viewed as being a major scam run by crooks, one of whom was Maurice Macmillan, who used his status as the PM’s son to persuade people that it was sound.

At the Feb 1974 General Election, Sir Anthony came up with a stroke of genius. He called for a coalition led by Woy Jenkins, the bisexual swinging paedophiles’ friend who had spent much time and effort concealing not just Dafydd’s gang, but the very serious crime associated with it and the corruption in the Home Office which made it all possible. See post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’

It was in 1974 that Sir Anthony resigned from the Bow Group after their magazine published an attack on Ted Heath, of whom Sir Anthony was a strong supporter.

During the Westland Affair, which began in April 1985 and continued until the early months of 1986, Sir Anthony urged Thatch to resign. Thatch didn’t, although Westland resulted in the resignation of Tarzan and then the resignation of Leon Brittan. Had the degree of dishonesty on the part of Thatch and members of the Cabinet been known at the time, Westland would have brought down Thatch’s Gov’t and at the time, Thatch et al did think that it might be curtains for them at one point. Details of the Westland Affair and the Somerset politicians who jumped on the bandwagon and knew people in Somerset who knew what was happening to me can be read in my post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve ‘.

Just to refresh everyone’s memories, here’s a quick resume. Nearly everyone involved has appeared many times on this blog with regard to their role in colluding with Dafydd and the gang.

 

The Westland Affair revolved around the fate of Westland Helicopters,  a company in Somerset, for which Janet Mitchell, whom I knew before I went to university, worked. Westland was considered a small concern by the Mr Bigs of industry, but it was a big deal in Somerset and a number of Somerset MPs, including some known to people in Somerset who knew what was happening to me at the hands of Dafydd et al, had a lot resting on the future of Westland. Westland had been ailing for years and in 1985-86 Thatch’s Gov’t was involved in a major scrap regarding the rescue package which would be offered to Westland.

Initially, Heseltine, the Defence Secretary, didn’t give a stuff about the fate of Westland when it was deemed to be in need of a rescue package. However, Heseltine’s ears pricked up in Nov 1985, when the Chairman of Westland, John Cuckney, proposed that Westland merge with United Technologies Corporation, of which the US company Sikorsky was a subsidiary. Heseltine opposed this plan after realising that Westland would probably become responsible for assembling the Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk, which the Ministry of Defence would then be under great pressure to buy. Heseltine preferred for Westland to go into receivership so that British companies GEC and British Aerospace could buy the viable parts of the business.

British Aerospace had a factory at Broughton in Meyer’s constituency, which was a political hot potato because of the lack of highly skilled well-paid jobs in the area. The Broughton factory is now known as Airbus.

In mid-October Heseltine had suggested that a European consortium should rescue Westland. Leon Brittan, who had replaced Tebbs as Trade and Industry Secretary in Sept 1985, at first urged Thatcher to consider a European option (Heseltine later claimed Brittan preferred this option, although Brittan denied this). The Gov’t was officially neutral (i.e. arguing that it was a matter for Westland Directors and shareholders) but by November Heseltine was lobbying hard for the European option. In late November Peter Levene, Chief of Procurement at the Ministry of Defence, had a meeting at the Ministry with his French, West German and Italian counterparts (the National Armaments Directors or NADs) and the representatives of the consortium, and agreed to “buy European” for certain classes of helicopters. If Westland went ahead with Sikorsky, its helicopters, under this new agreement, would be unable to be bought by the four Gov’ts. Thatch, who only learned of the meeting through John Cuckney, was displeased, as were Brittan and the Treasury, who thought the US option might be cheaper, although Thatch and Brittan kept to their official pretence of neutrality.

On 5 and 6 December 1985, Thatch had two ad hoc meetings with Heseltine, Brittan, Tebbit, Willie Whitelaw (Deputy PM), Geoffrey Howe, (Foreign Secretary) and Nigel Lawson (Chancellor of the Exchequer).

Brittan argued that the NADs’ opposition should be set aside, but Howe and Tebbit were not unsympathetic to Heseltine’s proposed consortium, and the decision was deferred to the Cabinet Economic Affairs Committee (E(A)) on Monday 9 December 1985. Cuckney and a Westland financial adviser were invited to attend the E(A) meeting. Cuckney said that it was the Westland’s management’s view that the Sikorsky option was the best one. A majority of the E(A) meeting agreed to dismiss the NADs’ opposition. Thatch, who complained that three hours had been spent discussing a company with a market capitalisation of only £30m, allowed Heseltine until 4 pm on Friday 13 December to submit a viable proposal for a European deal.

Heseltine did submit a proposal (with British Aerospace and GEC now part of his consortium), but Westland’s Directors rejected it and chose Sikorsky. Heseltine had expected that there would be a second meeting of E(A) to discuss his consortium, but no such meeting was called; Thatcher later claimed that the Monday meeting had agreed to leave the decision to Westland to take, but it later emerged that Ridley and Lord David Young had placed such a meeting in their diaries and had been told by No 10 that it had been cancelled. Heseltine threatened resignation for the first time.

At Cabinet on Thursday 12 December 1985, Heseltine had an angry exchange with Thatcher about the allegedly cancelled meeting (Thatcher claimed that no such meeting had ever been scheduled). Westland was not on the Cabinet agenda that day and Thatcher refused to permit a discussion on the matter, arguing that Cabinet could not do so without the necessary papers. Heseltine asked for his dissent to be minuted, and this was not done, although Cabinet Secretary Robert Armstrong (see post ‘Lord Robert Armstrong’)  claimed that this had been an error and added it himself.

On Monday 16 December Brittan told the Commons that the decision was up to Westland; on Wednesday 18 December Heseltine won the backing of the Commons Defence Committee for the European Consortium’s latest bid. On Thursday 19 December the matter was discussed at Cabinet for ten minutes: Cabinet approved leaving the decision to Westland and Heseltine was ordered to cease campaigning for the European option.

Over Christmas, Thatcher discussed with close colleagues the option of sacking Heseltine, as Brittan had urged her to do (Chief Whip John Wakeham cautioned against), but – as Thatch later admitted in her memoirs – she shrank from doing so as he was too popular and weighty a political figure. Thatcher and ministerial colleagues spent two and a half hours writing three successive drafts of a letter threatening Heseltine with the sack, but did not send it because her press adviser Bernard Ignham advised that Heseltine might use it an excuse to resign.

By now the political row was being discussed in the media. Cuckney wrote to Thatcher, at her behest, asking for reassurance that the Sikorsky deal would not damage Westland’s business prospects in Europe. Heseltine was not satisfied with Thatcher’s draft reply when he saw it and consulted Sir Patrick Mayhew (Solicitor-General) and acting Attorney General, because Sir Michael Havers, the AG, was ill) on the grounds that the Gov’t might be legally liable for any incorrect advice. Heseltine supplied extra material about the risk of losing European business, which Thatcher did not include in her reply to Cuckney. Thatcher replied to Cuckney to the effect that the British Gov’t would continue to support Westland in gaining orders in Europe.

In early January 1986, Heseltine then wrote to David Horne of Lloyds Merchant Bank, who was advising the European consortium (in reply to planted questions from Horne which had been dictated to him over the phone by one of Heseltine’s staff), giving him the advice which Thatch had declined to include in her letter to Cuckney. Contradicting Thatch’s reassurances to Cuckney, Heseltine claimed that the Sikorsky deal would be “incompatible with participation” in European helicopter projects. Heseltine’s letter was leaked to ‘The Times’. This was a blatant challenge to Thatcher’s authority as Heseltine had not consulted Downing Street, the DTI or Mayhew before writing to Horne.

Heseltine’s letter to Horne, on Thatcher’s request, was referred to the Solicitor-General, Patrick Mayhew. Mayhew sent a reply to Heseltine, noting “material inaccuracies” in Heseltine’s letter, and asking Heseltine to write to Horne again, correcting them. Mayhew’s letter of rebuke to Heseltine – marked “Confidential” – reached Heseltine at lunchtime on Monday 6 January and was immediately and selectively leaked to the Press Association by Colette Bowe, Chief Information Officer at the DTI, at Brittan’s request. There was controversy over whose orders Colette Bowe was following. The Attorney-General Michael Havers, took a stern view of leaks, especially of confidential legal advice, and threatened to resign if an official inquiry was not set up to look into it. Thatcher agreed to do this.

Cabinet met on the morning of Thursday 9 January 1986, with Thatch already having agreed her position with close colleagues at Chequers that weekend and arranged that Scottish Secretary George Younger should take over as Defence Secretary if Heseltine resigned. Westland was first on the agenda and Heseltine and Brittan were permitted to put their cases. Heseltine had won the moral high ground over the leaking saga, but Lawson recorded that he seemed obsessive at Cabinet and attracted little sympathy. Thatcher then reiterated her position, which had already been endorsed by the Cabinet, that Westland’s future was a matter for Westland to decide, and announced that as this was a time of business negotiations all answers to questions about Westland must be cleared through the Cabinet Office. Heseltine agreed.

However, in response to a question by Nicholas Ridley, Thatch then confirmed that this also applied to statements which had already been made. Heseltine argued that he should be allowed to reaffirm statements he had already made but Thatcher disagreed, arguing that Cabinet collective responsibility should be observed. Heseltine protested that there had been no collective responsibility and left. Heseltine then walked out of Downing Street and announced his resignation to the media.

Thatcher then adjourned the Cabinet for a brief break. George Younger was then offered and accepted the office of Defence Secretary, which Heseltine had just relinquished. The PM’s office then requested Malcolm Rifkind to take up Younger’s previous job, Scottish Secretary, which he accepted. Cabinet then resumed.

At 4 pm that day at the Ministry of Defence (rather than waiting to make a statement to the House of Commons when it resumed four days later) Heseltine delivered a resignation statement detailing his grievances. He blamed Thatcher’s intransigence. Tarzan may well have prepared this earlier, although his Private Secretary Richard Mottram says not. To Thatcher’s fury, Defence officials had helped him throughout the crisis and in preparing this document. Thatcher sent a letter to Heseltine, as is customary on these occasions.

On 13 January 1986, Thatch held a meeting with Whitelaw, Brittan, Younger and Wakeham to decide what should then happen. The conclusion was that Brittan, rather than Thatch, should reply to Heseltine’s statement on that day.

In his resignation statement in the Commons Heseltine accused Brittan of pressuring Sir Raymond Lygo, CEO of British Aerospace, to withdraw from the European Consortium. In response to questions in the House from Heseltine, Brittan denied that he had received a letter from Lygo, but later had to admit that he had received a letter from Sir Austin Pearce, Chairman of British Aerospace; he had not disclosed it, he claimed, because it was marked Private and Strictly Confidential. He was forced to return to the House a few hours later to apologise.

Robert Armstrong held an inquiry into the leaking of Mayhew’s letter and reported his findings to Thatch on 21 January. Armstrong concluded that Brittan had told Bowe to leak Mayhew’s letter through a telephone conversation to Roger Mogg, Brittan’s Private Secretary. Thatcher is said to have asked Brittan four times: “Leon, why didn’t you tell me.” Havers, who demanded the inquiry, later claimed: “Unless the PM is the most marvellous actress I’ve ever seen in my life she was as shocked as anybody that in fact it was on Leon Brittan’s instructions.” At the time, Brittan claimed he had misunderstood Thatcher’s wishes but later (on the television programme The Thatcher Factor on 7 April 1989) admitted that he had acted on the “express” instructions of Charles Powell and Bernard Ingham, Thatcher’s two senior advisers. On 23 January, Thatcher had to make a speech to the Commons on Armstrong’s inquiry.

Brittan was being heavily criticised because of the fall-out from the leak of the Mayhew letter and because of his lack of candour about the letter from British Aerospace. A meeting of the 1922 Committee Conservative back-benchers, demanded Brittan’s resignation. On 24 January therefore Brittan resigned.

On 27 January 1986, Labour set down an adjournment motion. Whitelaw, Howe, Wakeham, John Biffen and Douglas Hurd helped Thatcher draft her speech for this occasion. Ronald Miller, one of Thatch’s friends, was asked to help revise the speech and Thatch remarked to him that she might not be Prime Minister by six o’clock that evening if things went badly.

The Windbag was thought to have made a poor opening speech. Heseltine was frustrated at the Windbag’s failure to exploit the moment and claimed that Thatch’s statement brought “the politics of the matter to an end” and that he would support the Gov’t in the lobby.

Sikorsky then bought Westland, aided by mysterious prior purchases by mystery buyers, suspected by Cuckney and others, although without clear proof, of being an illegal concert party. 

 

Westland damaged Thatcher’s reputation and made her look anti-European for the first time. It has been suggested that Thatcher’s keenness on American control of Westland may have been linked to the Al-Yamamah arms deal, or that the US might have wanted Westland to sell Black Hawk helicopters to Saudi Arabia in circumvention of Congressional rules which prevented US arms sales to that country at the time.

Brittan’s behaviour was thought in part to have been motivated by resentment at his demotion from Home Secretary to Trade and Industry Secretary in September 1985. However, he also thought Heseltine’s mooted European consortium to be monopolistic and anti-competitive.

Apart from his clash of personalities with Thatcher, it was thought that Heseltine, concerned at having to take responsibility for Defence cuts which had been put back until 1986 and worried that Thatcher was unlikely to promote him further, was looking for an excuse to resign. Resigning would put him in good stead to be elected Party leader after, as seemed likely at the time, the Conservatives lost the next election due by summer 1988.

Heseltine retired to the back benches and spent nearly five years conducting an undeclared campaign for the party leadership. Although Thatch was re-elected in 1987, Heseltine eventually challenged Thatch in November 1990, polling well enough to hasten her resignation.

 

Now here are a few observations that you won’t find in any other accounts of the Westland affair, as well as of course, the observation that some of those involved were known to me and to people in Somerset who knew me.

All of the politicians involved as well as the civil servants, knew about Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and that Peter Morrison was part of it. They also knew about the wider Westminster Paedophile Ring. In July 2015, the Mail Online reported that in 1986, the then head of MI5 Sir Antony Duff wrote to Armstrong and told him that an MP had a ‘penchant for small boys’. Armstrong’s response was that ‘at the present stage…the risks of political embarrassment to the Government is rather greater than the security danger’. It is accepted that the MP concerned was Peter Morrison. It was Armstrong who warned Thatch about Jimmy Savile’s sexual tastes and told her that embarrassment could result if he was given a K. Thatch carried on lobbying for him to have one and he got one. It was Armstrong who, in the Spycatcher trial, coined the phrase ‘economical with the truth’.

Lord Armstrong gave years of loyal service to PMs who concealed organised abuse. He was PPS to Ted Heath, 1970-75 and Cabinet Secretary to Thatch, 1979-87.

What was Sir Peter Morrison’s own position while the huge fight was happening? He was Minister of State for Trade and Industry throughout much of it, Morrison was in that post between Sept 1985-Sept 1986.

No wonder Tarzan saw his opportunity and mayhem prevailed, with lies being told from all quarters.

There have been constant allegations that Leon Brittan was involved in organised abuse himself. He had certainly really pushed the boat out to collude with and to conceal it when he had been Home Secretary just before the Westland Affair blew up, including claiming that he could not remember being given the dossier of Westminster and other VIP child molesters by Geoffrey Dickens MP, then remembering that he had been given the dossier after all and then managing to lose it. See previous posts.

Michael Havers, during his time as Attorney General, is known to have blocked the prosecutions of Westminster and Whitehall figures whom it is now admitted were known to be abusing children. Havers was the MP for Wimbledon, so a number of the staff of St George’s Hospital Medical School who were facilitating and concealing the trafficking rings, including Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain, were among Havers’s constituents. See previous posts for information about Havers and his sister, Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, who was called upon to Chair the Inquiry into the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal in 1988, which was a result of the activities of Dafydd’s Friends In The North and whitewashed that.

Patrick Mayhew, just a few years after the Westland Affair, when he had become Attorney General, authorised a number of prosecutions of me which were accompanied by requests that I should be imprisoned, on the basis of what Mayhew and the lawyers presenting the evidence knew was perjury. See post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’. Before Mayhew was elected as an MP, he had worked as a barrister for the MDU and was the man responsible for ensuring that the paedophile psychiatrist Dr Morris Fraser continued to practice, even after he had sexually assaulted a child. Fraser was a Top Doctor based in Belfast and was involved with children from the Kincora Boys’ Home, which was the centre of a trafficking ring, linked with Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and other rings on mainland Britain. Lord Mountbatten and Anthony Blunt are two of the names which have been consistently linked with the allegations regarding Kincora. Peter Morrison’s sister Dame Mary was Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to Lilibet and Carlo was the Chancellor of UCNW while Dafydd and his mates used the college to facilitate their gang.

Morris Fraser subsequently left Belfast and relocated to London, where he worked at Springfield Hospital, the mental health unit attached to St George’s and UCL.

Mayhew was eventually appointed Secretary of State for N Ireland.

John Wakeham, later Lord Wakeham, some two years after Westland became Sir Peter Morrison’s boss in the Dept of Energy.

At the time of Westland, Douglas Hurd was Home Secretary. In which role he was colluding with the serious criminality in north Wales, much  of which was aimed at my friends and I. Hurd was also the nephew of a colleague of Prof Greig-Smith, the Professor of Plant Biology at Bangor, a senior member of staff in the Dept which employed D.G.E. Wood’s wife. See post ‘Additional Security Measures’. Before becoming Home Secretary, Hurd had been N Ireland Secretary.

I notice the running theme that was Lloyds Bank as well.

Throughout the Westland Affair, Heseltine was constantly batting on behalf of British Aerospace’s interests, in any way that he could, using whatever justification. The British Aerospace which had that factory in Sir Anthony Meyers constituency; Myers gained Brownie points by ‘supporting’ British Aerospace. Sir Anthony was a very keen European, as was Tarzan. Tarzan also wanted to become PM very, very badly. For further details of Tarzan’s Struggle, see post ‘A Legend Lives’.

Sir Anthony knew that Brown, me and our friends had realised that something very serious and very criminal was happening in north Wales, because by then the security services had us all under surveillance and Sir Anthony was Of MI6. We knew that whatever was going on was related to criminal conduct on the part of Top Docs and we knew that it involved sexual misconduct and drugs, but we didn’t realise that it was a pan-European trafficking ring involving Westminster and people associated with Lilibet. We knew that it was something big however, because the Top Docs were just quite mad and very, very nasty. Even the most hopeless plod in the world would have taken one look at them and concluded that ‘they’ve got something to hide Sarge’.

By the time that the Westland Affair had begun, the Top Docs were clearly prepared to do pretty much anything to block all complaints and shut us up.

After acting as a stalking horse in Nov 1989 and thus allowing the real challenge to Thatcher’s leadership a year later, from which Tarzan hoped to benefit – Meyer supported Tarzan in the leadership campaign which John Major eventually won – Meyer’s constituency party and the tabloid press turned on him. He was deselected and stood down at the 1992 General Election. Events were spiced up when the tabloids revealed that Sir Anthony had been having an affair – which lasted approx 25 years – with a former model and blues singer, Simone Washington. His wife knew and was unconcerned. I’m of the opinion that it was a matter for Sir Anthony, his wife and Simone, but when reading about Sir Anthony, I picked up a few clues that Simone and Sir Anthony’s wife might not have been the only people with whom Sir Anthony was discussing Uganda.

Meyer arrived in north east Wales in 1970 knowing that there was a VIP paedophile/trafficking ring already in place and he knew that they had plans to expand their business in a very big way in the near future. I cannot help suspecting that Sir Anthony might have been one of those attending Dafydd’s ‘clinics’ or even calling in at Dafydd’s Prestatyn knocking shop which I described in my post ‘You Know I’m No Good…’. Whatever was going on, Sir Anthony was as desperate as the rest of north Wales, Westminster and Whitehall and the legal and medical establishment to ensure that Dafydd and the gang were not put out of action, even if people had to die to keep the show on the road. Everybody was at each others throats, a few daft old men and one daft old women thought that they had a God-given right to a job as a Prime Minister and even more daft old buggers wanted to have sex with people who didn’t want to have sex with them. Even if the objects of desire were 12 years old, a refusal was not accepted.

Everyone involved in the Westland scrap will have been aware that what was happening were sordid political deals being done in desperation because a small group of young academics and media professionals had realised that something terrible was going on in north Wales and that it was Top Doctor-related. Why couldn’t the Windbag make a better speech when Thatcher was on the ropes? Partly because he’s hopeless, but partly because his mate Tony Francis was in it up to his eye-balls and Francis et al weren’t just serving up fresh meat to horrible old Tories. There were horrible old members of other parties involved as well. Including one who wasn’t so old.

To return to the 1987 General Election and the plan by Dafydd and the gang to get me up to north Wales from Leicester, where I was then living, days after that election and frame me for a serious crime – attempting to stab a doctor (see posts ‘Workers’ Play Time’ and ‘Security, Security’). My documents show that Risley Remand Centre and David Ewart of the Mental Health Act Commission were on board with the plan, along with Dafydd, Laurie Wood, the manager of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and Tony Francis and his colleagues at Ysbyty Gwynedd. The letter to Ewart saying that I had been arrested and was in Risley Remand Centre had actually been written at the North Wales Hospital and sent to Ewart. However the plan backfired because Jeff Crowther, a nursing officer at Ysbyty Gwynedd, didn’t tell as many lies as he was expected to tell and Sgt Morgan of Bangor Police Station refused to let D.G.E. Wood into the police station – Wood had no legal right to be there anyway. Neither would Sgt Morgan take statements over the phone from Angels from Denbigh who were ringing the police station while I was sitting in front of Sgt Morgan, telling him that I had threatened them.

I returned to Leicester the next day. Brown and I subsequently asked my solicitor if we could bring charges of perjury but he said that would not be possible. No complaints of mine were being investigated by the NHS, so I persisted with trying to get answers over the phone. I told Alun Davies that it would appear that he and his colleagues were guilty of conspiracy and perjury and that Sgt Morgan had told me that ‘they are all conspiring against you up there’. Davies bellowed down the phone ‘we’ll be putting in a complaint about him’. Sgt Morgan was subsequently arrested and charged with indecently assaulting a 14 year old girl in custody, on the grounds that he had put his hand into the back pocket of her jeans when he was searching her. He was found guilty and sacked. Jeff Crowther seemed to know that Sgt Morgan was going to be found guilty weeks before his trial.

Sgt Morgan’s colleagues were colluding with a gang who repeatedly buggered and raped children as young as nine. They beat them, they framed them for trivial as well as serious offences and they murdered some victims and witnesses.

Because so many transparent lies were told to me when I was trying to follow up my complaints in the autumn of 1987, on one occasion when yet again I was told that Dafydd ‘wasn’t available’, that no-one knew where he was or when he would be available, I told the secretary to tell Dafydd that I was due to speak to a tabloid newspaper about the mental health services in north Wales the next morning. Dafydd rang me within 20 mins and offered me a place at Liverpool Medical School if I dropped my complaint about him. I did not take up the generous offer.

On 18 Nov 1987, a fireball at King’s Cross Station killed 31 people. I was due to be passing through the station at the time of the fire. I had been delayed so I missed it. I have been told that the fire was supposed to have killed me.

The Professor of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School, Oliver Brooke, had been imprisoned for the possession of child porn just days after I was unlawfully arrested and imprisoned in Denbigh by Dafydd in Dec 1986. Brooke was a key player in a big pan-European paedophile ring, of which Dafydd’s gang were a part. Ollie Brooke had his sentence cut and was released on appeal by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane just before the 1987 General Election.

 

Sir Anthony Meyer once said of his wartime service that ‘Of the dozen closest friends of my youth, ten were killed in the war – a tragic waste of life.’

Hundreds and hundreds of kids passed through the north Wales children’s homes in the 1970s, 80s and 90s and many disappeared, never to be seen again. Of all the patients that I was illegally imprisoned with in Denbigh in the winter of 1986/87, I think that I am the only one who is still alive. Only about three of them were in late middle age at the time.

 

Readers might remember that the one thing that Heseltine still receives credit for is his role in the regeneration of Liverpool in the early 1980s. He channelled funding into areas like Liverpool 8. At the time Dafydd’s gang virtually ran Liverpool. Liz Stables, Dafydd’s mate who worked as the Angel at the Student Health Centre at UCNW from 1983, was formerly a teacher in Liverpool 8. Liz kept in touch with her former pupils, some of whom were sex workers and prostitutes and Liz visited Liverpool 8 on a frequent basis. Dafydd’s ‘drug clinics’ in north Wales were full of addicts from Liverpool. Dafydd’s neglectful and abusive ‘nursing homes’ also swelled with numbers of vulnerable people who had been dumped in north Wales by Liverpool City Council who considered them expensive, troublesome citizens. Dafydd made a fortune out of them and it was OK by Liverpool, because after I think it was six months, they then became the financial responsibility of the County Councils in north Wales.

There is an Angel called Mal Hendy who arrived at Ysbyty Gwynedd from Liverpool back in about 1985. Mal is very pleasant himself, but he has worked in north Wales for decades now and has witnessed patients violently assaulted, illegally detained, fitted up, threatened and abducted by the gang. He knows just how serious the crime is but like all of his colleagues, Mal hasn’t said a word about any of it.

 

Regarding the constant attempts of Dafydd and the gang to fit me up for serious offences. One person who knew exactly what was going on was Sgt Tim Evans of the North Wales Police. Tim was a neighbour of Mary Wynch’s and would have known that she had been wrongfully arrested and illegally imprisoned. When the Top Doctors were constantly demanding my arrest in the late 1980s/throughout the 1990s, it was often Sgt Evans who was called upon to arrest me. Jeff Crowther, the nursing officer at Ysbyty Gwynedd,  told me that Tim Evans had told Jeff that he thought that the situation was ‘farcical’ in that there was a hospital full of highly paid people claiming to be Experts, but they continually demanded the arrest of one ‘mischievous young woman’ whom the police could see was not dangerous and had not committed the crimes which were being attributed to her.

Tim Evans knew about the attempt to frame and imprison me in 1987. Still no-one asked any questions. In the early 1990s, Tim Evans was called upon by the Top Doctors to arrest me constantly. At one point I was told by Jeff Crowther that Tim told the Top Doctors quite frankly that I had rights as well and they could not simply demand that I be arrested when there was no evidence that I had committed any crime. In response to this Tony Francis wrote to the Chief Constable, complaining about Sgt Evans and explaining that I was very dangerous, that the Top Doctors’ complaints about me were not being taken seriously and explaining that as Top Docs they knew better than plods. The Chief Constable to whom Francis wrote was David Owen, who famously refused to co-operate with the investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, 1991-93.

Tim was asked to arrest me again within days of Francis writing to the Chief Constable. When I challenged Tim, he simply said that when he was sacked I would not be able to get him his job back. I was taken off to the police station for yet another interview about a non-crime. There were no charges brought against me.

I later heard that Tim was promoted to the rank of Inspector and was one of the officers whom it was suspected didn’t co-operate with the investigations into the abuse of children in north Wales. At one point, Tim Evans went ‘undercover’ in Cheshire. Dafydd’s gang operated in north Wales and Cheshire, everyone will have known who Tim Evans was…

 

 

Another familiar name who also was thought not to have tried too hard in terms of investigating child abuse in north Wales was Jo Bott, a former WPC with the North Wales Police who later became the Child Protection Officer for Gwynedd. It was Jo Bott who was involved in the case detailed in my post ‘It’s All About Protecting Children’. Jo Bott was asked to review the case of a young baby who’s father was being unlawfully denied any access after being asked to leave the family home days after the birth of the baby. The father was deeply concerned because the 18 year old son of his former partner – her son from a previous relationship – had abused two ten year old boys. After Bott’s initial visit to the baby’s father – which was requested by the baby’s father himself – Bott made a return visit to the baby’s father and told him that his former partner had admitted that her eldest son had abused two 10 yrs olds but Jo Bott ‘wasn’t worried’ about this, because the mother of the baby had told the 10 year olds not to visit the family home again. Jo Bott told the baby’s father that there would be no case conference. There were still no arrangements made for the father to visit his baby.

Some three weeks later, two neighbours told the baby’s father that the 18 year old son of his former partner had been caught once more abusing boys whom he offered to babysit. The baby’s father contacted the GPs in Bethesda with his concerns once more. Jo Bott arrived at the baby’s father’s house and told him and his new wife that there were absolutely no concerns about the family and told his new wife to ‘leave [his former partner] alone’. She had not had any contact in any way with her husband’s former partner since the relationship broke up.

I later found out that a deal had been done between the Bethesda GPs, Jo Bott, Gwynedd Social Services and the mental health services to maintain that it was the baby’s father who was a ‘risk’ to the baby in the face of no evidence that this was so. He was never aware that this deal had been done. He never did gain access to his baby, the baby is now an adult and his father has never met him. The baby grew up in a house with a paedophile. Just before the Waterhouse Inquiry, one person who witnessed the ‘deal’ being thrashed out because he lodged in the family home at the time was killed by a lorry.

Many years ago, the father of the baby in this case had witnessed the abuse of children in the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor and confronted the social workers responsible. He and his then wife received a visit from the Drug Squad a few days later, who planted Class A drugs on them; his wife had also witnessed the abuse of kids in Ty Newydd. At the station this man was punched in the face by a senior officer. He was left to walk home. He had a psychotic episode, set fire to his house, was re-arrested by the police, detained in Risley Remand Centre where he heard inmates on the ‘hospital wing’ wing beaten up by the screws every night and was then unlawfully transferred to Denbigh, where he was unlawfully detained for a year. The charges against him were dropped somewhere along the way.

This man always told me that he set fire to his house. The exact details were that he was hearing the voice of God and hallucinated a massive spider. He told me that he then heard a voice saying ‘raze this house’, so he lit a gas stove, turned it on its side presuming that it would set fire to the house and went up into the mountains, where he was arrested hours later, after being told that he was now going to be charged with arson and endangering life, thus it was off to Risley…

I received a message today telling me that all these years, a myth has been spun. I have been told that it wasn’t that man who set fire to the house at all. After he threw the stove on its side and went up into the mountains, somebody else went in and set fire to the house…

Til, who used to work at S4C and lived next door to that man in Gray Street, Carneddi and really hated him: do you happen to know who it was who did set fire to that house?

 

This was the Home Secretary in post when it all kicked off in Carneddi/Bangor Police Station/Risley/North Wales Hospital:

  • Douglas Hurd so hungover on Irish trip he had to be walked ...

 

 

I have made previous references to the good PR coverage that the paedophile gang are careful to ensure that they receive when exposure threatens. North Wales has been entertained over the past two years or so to see that, while things have got really seriously grim at the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, the Betsi is constantly giving itself awards or even picking up awards from other organisations which are as questionable as the Betsi is. The awards are always accompanied by a pic of Top Docs, Angels and the presence of a journo ensures that a little piece will appear in the local paper.

I saw an article in the local press in north Wales concerning some Award Winners just after I had finished my PhD. Dafydd’s gang were getting very stressed indeed at the time, after their failure to stitch me up for a serious crime. They had told everyone that I’d be getting at least five years in prison before the trial had even started. Then Brown and me started appearing in the broadsheets and then we made it clear that one day we would be publishing about matters north Wales.

So imagine my surprise when in the midst of the Paedophiles’ Panic, I saw a few faces that I recognised staring out at me from the newspaper, Award Winners all. They were people whom I had known well through my years of battle with Dafydd et al. The person receiving a Extra Special Lifetime Achievement Award was Mike Williams, who was the charge nurse on Bryn Golau Ward when I was illegally held there by Dafydd, along with all the other witnesses/victims to the wrongdoing of the gang. Mike Williams witnessed Dafydd turning up after midnight to ‘visit’ me. Mike Williams knew that I had been detained illegally. Mike Williams was there when orders came from Dafydd that I was suddenly to be driven to the nearest railway station, put on a train to London, told to ‘shut my mouth about DA’ and that if I ever came back to north Wales I’d be arrested. Mike Williams was also there when he was asked if I should be put in the dungeon. That was when he started being nice to me. I’d Heard and he knew it.

Mike was nice to me for the rest of my time in Denbigh. I was told by another Angel years ago that Mike Williams was the only Angel there who wasn’t afraid of Dafydd. So I always wondered how he’d managed to keep his job at Denbigh. When I saw Mike receiving his award in the paper, I wrote to him and told him that I remembered him. I didn’t hear back, but I thought well it is a very long time ago and he’s 70 now.

The other Award Winners were an Angel called Ella Fisk, whom I had known for years at the Hergest Unit and a nursing assistant called Rosina Peglar from the Hergest, whom I also knew. The person dispensing the Awards was also known to me, a forensic Angel called Jackie Ehlen. Since then I have read my medical records in detail – the NHS was still unlawfully witholding them when those Awards were dispensed. It is clear from my records that everybody who won an Award on that occasion as well as Jackie, who handed out the Awards, was party to the most serious wrongdoing regarding my own case. They had all lied, or gained knowledge of perjury with the intent to frame me for offences of which they knew that I was not guilty. All of them knew that I’d been assaulted and that Dafydd had behaved highly improperly towards me and others. So the whole crew were flagged up as Award Winners before Brown and me published anything else and before my lawyers got hold of those records.

As for Mike Williams, it has been made clear to me recently that he was actually the worst of Dafydd’s henchmen, but he knew that I had a brain and that Brown and I were exchanging letters daily…

Hard luck Mike, I never ever forgot the suggestion that you should put me in that dungeon. So where are the bodies buried?

Mike has been well-rewarded for his help in running a paedophile gang who murdered witnesses. Mike has a yacht and once he officially retired he had a great time going off on the high seas.

Jackie Ehlen: About time that you told the truth about the death of Dorothy Griffiths isn’t it? Found dead on the ward after her parents refused to let her go to Denbigh? All those lies that you, Dr Sadie Francis and Dr Colin Flood told at the inquest, none of your stories were consistent and because you all swore blind that you were telling the truth and stuck to your stories, no-one knew who was telling porkies. Although it might have been all three of you, because the lab results said something different again…

Ella and Rosina: you worked at Ysbyty Gwynedd for years, you watched patients being abused, you watched staff lie to get themselves out of trouble and you were told by patients repeatedly of abuse and neglect. You also knew about that trafficking gang…

You Know I’m No Good…

My last post ‘More Dogs That Did Not Bark’ discussed General Pinochet’s arrival in Britain in 1998, his stay at a private hospital in London and his subsequent arrest and detention in London after the Spanish authorities obtained an international arrest warrant. Spain wanted to extradite Pinochet and put him on trial for war crimes, but some helpful Top Doctors provided medical evidence that Pinochet was unfit to stand trial and thus the then Home Secretary Jack Straw overturned a Law Lords ruling that Pinochet should be extradited and Pinochet was flown back to Chile. Pinochet made a remarkable recovery the minute that he hit the tarmac in Chile and lived for another six years.

There was outrage, particularly as it was perceived that the Top Docs had done Pinochet a massive favour.

Now for a few more details with regard to those very helpful British Top Doctors.

When General Pinochet was placed under house arrest, he was staying at The London Clinic. The London Clinic touts itself as a leading ‘private hospital’ and is of course registered as a charity, but it also seems to provides hotel accommodation for the very rich elderly and frail.  Ian MacGregor’s volume on the 1984-85 miners’ strike discusses a meeting that MacGregor had with John Paul Getty II, which culminated in Getty giving a donation of £100k to the National Working Miners. MacGregor mentions that Getty was staying at The London Clinic, which was where Getty usually ‘lived’ when he was in the UK. One of the Trustees of The London Clinic, 1994-2002, was Thatcher’s Cabinet Minister John Biffen (see post ‘A Local Boy Made Good?’). For further details about the London Clinic and those involved with it, see post ‘A Legend Lives’.

I have not yet discovered which Top Doctor(s) operated on Pinochet’s back, which was the main reason for Pinochet’s visit to the UK, but after Pinochet was placed under house arrest, medical opinions regarding Pinochet’s fitness for extradition and trial were supplied by Prof Sir John Grimley Evans, Professor of Clinical Geratology at the University of Oxford; Dr Michael Denham, Consultant Physician in Geriatric Medicine at Northwick Park Hospital in London and Professor Andrew Lees, Professor of Neurology at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London. Dr Maria Wyke, a Consultant Neuropsychologist at London’s Devonshire Hospital, provided an additional report.’

I provided full details of the background of Professor Sir John Grimley Evans in my post ‘A Few More Who Might Be Able To Answer Questions’.

Dr Michael Denham stars on the website of the London North West Healthcare NHS Trust, which provides the following information:

Dr Michael Denham recently retired as Consultant Geriatrician at Northwick Park Hospital having been both Secretary and later President of the British Geriatrics Society. He hosted the MRCP Examinations on several occasions, and features in the MRCP PACES video. He has recently successfully completed a PhD.

 

In may 1997, The Indie reported that Michael Denham had Chaired the Royal College of Physicians working party which had just published a Report concerning the serious problem of unnecessarily drugging elderly people in ‘care homes’. Denham made some damning comments about the practice, which he admitted was widespread. The Indie told us that:

The practice of “switching the patients out with the lights” is causing increasing concern among medical and charitable organisations, according to the report by the Royal College of Physicians. More than 90 per cent of residents of the homes are prescribed drugs, and nearly half are taking major tranquillisers and other sedatives. Dr Michael Denham, consultant geriatrician at Northwick Park Hospital and chairman of the working party that produced the report, said there had been a six-fold increase in places in private and voluntary homes since 1983, fuelled by a 30 per cent decline in NHS long-term care, which had placed a severe burden on local GPs.

“I fear that in some homes these drugs are being used like a chemical ball and chain to keep patients quiet. These are very frail physically and mentally ill people and virtually the entire lot are on medication, with a large proportion on sedatives. It is a growing cause for concern.”

National guidelines on prescribing drugs in the homes should be reviewed and closer monitoring introduced, possibly by giving overall responsibility to one or two GPs for each home, the report says…

The report, Medication for Older People, says that the over-65s are being prescribed 50 per cent more drugs than a decade ago. The annual number of items prescribed to older people has risen from 14.6 on average in 1985 to 21.8 in 1995. The cost of each prescription rose from £4.10 to £7.55 and accounted for almost half the increase in health authority drugs bills over the decade. Although older people make up 18 per cent of the population they receive 45 per cent of all prescriptions dispensed.

Dr Denham said doctors under pressure tended to have a reflex response to certain conditions such as dizziness in older people and prescribe a tranquilliser without investigating further. “If you leave them on tranquillisers they may end up with symptoms of Parkinsonism … There is a tendency to treat the symptom rather than the disease.”

However, underprescribing is also a problem, driven by some doctors’ ageist approach to treatment. The report says there is evidence that older people benefit more from drugs for heart conditions and high blood pressure than younger people, yet they are less likely to receive them.

“It is sad to note that … the attitudes of some doctors [remain] fixed to the concept of chronological age rather than biological age – the capacity of an individual to benefit,” it says.

 

That Report was published in 1997. It was an update of a previous one published in 1984.

When I was doing my A levels in 1980, my best friend worked in an old folk’s home in Bridgwater, the Drummier Nursing Home. The Drummier was famed throughout Bridgwater for being appalling. My friend, an A level student, told me that the old dears were told that she and other staff were ‘nurses’ and all of the residents were loaded up to eye-balls with a chemical cosh. The Drummier was owned and run by a woman called Johnson, who had previously worked as an Angel in the hospitals in Taunton and Bridgwater. Nurses who had worked with ‘Johnny Johnson’ told of how abusive she had been to the patients in the hospitals.  The Drummier remained up and running for a long time after we left Bridgwater to go to university.

In the summer of 1984, I applied for a job as a care assistant in an old folk’s home in Menai Bridge. I didn’t ever work there because those running it all turned out to be a bit bonkers. It was owned by a man who was an alcoholic and the woman running it, an Angel called Wendy – although that wasn’t her real name – had been sacked from her job at the C&A Hospital in Bangor for having sex with a patient on the ward. Dr D.G.E. Wood had patients in that home. I was told by one of Wood’s colleagues that of course, Wood wouldn’t ever put one of his own relatives in that place. ‘That place’ was located directly opposite the house where Top Doctors Tony and Sadie Francis lived.

Wood and the Drs Francis were facilitating the trafficking ring in north Wales, along with Dafydd, who owned old folk’s homes himself. By 1987, there had been many complaints to the GMC about the neglect, abuse and deaths in Dafydd’s homes, but no action was taken. Mary Wynch always maintained that her mother had been killed unlawfully, probably by a barbiturate overdose, while in one of Dafydd’s homes, but because Dafydd had Mary unlawfully arrested and sectioned, she was never able to prove it (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’).

In the early 1990s, I worked at Ceris Nursing Home, near Menai Bridge. Virtually all the residents were well drugged up. The woman who owned and ran Ceris, Mrs Murphy, was an SEN, not an SRN, which meant that Mrs Murphy was not qualified to take control of prescription medication, so Mrs Murphy was legally obliged to employ other SRNs/RGNs to do that. At least one of those registered nurses employed by Mrs Murphy had been sacked from a local hospital.

I worked in old folk’s homes in Gwynedd and Anglesey again during 1999. Every home that I worked in, except for one, was drugging the residents up. In one case, an elderly man was drugged with anti-psychotics when he complained about not being allowed to sit next to his wife during the day – the sitting rooms were separated on the grounds of gender, so a married couple who had been together for 50 years were separated. The old man protested, a tame GP was told how ‘difficult’ he was and out came the prescription pad. Not that the GP who prescribed for him and the other residents ever saw his patients, the order for the drugs was put in over the phone by the monstrous old bag who ran the home, Mrs Moffat, a former Angel of course and the prescriptions were sent over. This home also housed former North Wales Hospital Denbigh patients, including a lady who had been lobotomised. Furthermore she had been lobotomised years after Dafydd and Gwynne had stopped lobotomising awkward customers, or at least they had according to the journal articles and the books telling the history of the North Wales Hospital.

‘We didn’t know.’

Well how did I keep coming across the evidence then?

The lobotomised witness to the wrongdoing was hidden away in the Bryn Ceirios home at Pentraeth on Anglesey for years. Dafydd’s son Dr Dyfrig ap Dafydd works as a GP on Anglesey. I understand that Moffats are no longer at Bryn Ceirios; if they were I would suggest that someone disguises themselves as a transgendered elderly person and watch the confusion as everyone tries to work out whether they should be ordered to sit in the Men’s sitting room or the Women’s sitting room.

Elderly people are still being drugged up by Top Doctors at the request of Angels who run homes for the elderly and some of the offending homes are owned by Top Doctors. There was an EMI home on Anglesey, St Tysilio, owned by one of the Top Docs at Ysbyty Gwynedd. There were reports of abuse at St Tysilio. Dafydd’s mate Dr K. Shah, who was involved in my illegal detention in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh (see post ‘Hippocratic Oath Or Hypocritic Oaf?’), owned the Brig-y-Nant old folk’s home in Bethesda, where patients were abused and neglected, according to one of the care assistants there. Shah’s wife, an Angel, managed the home.

The drugging of the elderly residents of care homes is pretty much routine, no matter how many Top Docs Speak Out. When the Top Docs do Speak Out, the message is always the same – ooh, the GPs are becoming pressured by this and it’s putting a burden on the NHS. The GPs very often own the bloody homes, they’re making a packet out of mediocre or neglectful/abusive ‘care’ of the elderly.

For some of the details of the abuse and neglect that I witnessed while working in homes for the elderly, see post ‘Are There Dark Forces At Work – Again?’.
In many badly managed hospital wards for the elderly, patients are also drugged. The EMI patients who were abused in Tawel Fan at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd were inappropriately drugged. See previous posts. North Wales has hosted for many years one of the UK’s leading experts in EMI care – Professor Bob Woods. Bob Woods is one of many who ignored the trafficking ring and ignored the abuse of elderly patients. Bob Woods was far too busy concerning himself with being an Expert to give a bugger about them. Bob’s own colleague, Professor Clare Wenger, an expert in the care of the elderly herself, blew the whistle long and loudly a few years ago after she was horrified by what she witnessed passing for ‘elderly care’ in Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. She was denounced as a stuck up old cow by Ysbyty Glan Clwyd and the media. Every one of her colleagues remained silent. See previous posts. Well they’d spent years telling the world that they were experts in care for the elderly. Indeed, Bangor produced the Angel who became the first Professor of Gerontological Nursing, Professor Mike Nolan, a former teacher in north Wales who was years later given the Chair in Gerontological Nursing at Sheffield University (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’). Nolan used to run the day centre for the elderly at Ysbyty Gwynedd, where he ignored the abuse of patients. Mike Nolan’s day centre, the Deiniol Day Centre, was located next door to the Menai Day Centre, which was the forerunner of the larger Menai Day Centre which was located in the Hergest Unit when that was subsequently built. So we would go next door and watch Mike Nolan’s patients being abused and neglected and Mike Nolan and his colleagues would keep quiet about what was happening to us.
Did Mike Nolan also keep quiet about what was happening to kids when he worked as a teacher?
For a long while, the consultant psychogeriatrican for Gwynedd was the appalling Dr Devakumar, one of the self-styled ‘BMA psychiatrists’ who’s name and signature is all over my documents, demanding that I be sent to a secure hospital on the grounds of my insanity and dangerousness (see previous posts). Other Devakumar highlights included him swearing at Empowered Service Users – including me – and rolling his sleeves up in a ward round and threatening to have a fist fight with an Empowered Service User (not me amazingly enough).
Dr Devakumar ran the service for sick doctors in north Wales. They didn’t come much sicker than Devakumar and his colleagues…
It was hardly surprising that the Angels in north Wales had no idea how to care for elderly people, because they had never ever been taught how to. Not only were those responsible for ‘training’ the Angels in north Wales frequently clueless and unpleasant, but I watched what happened to student nurses in the hospitals and they were left to flounder. My first experience of this was in 1984, when I was admitted to the A&E at the C&A Hospital in Bangor with a serious injury. There was a student nurse left with me who was pleasant but clearly terrified of the blood spurting out of me, had no idea what to do and was barked at by a passing Angel to fill the documentation in regarding my details. So this poor teenager sat next to me, floundering with the paperwork, saying ‘I’m sorry, I’m new, I’m a student’ and no-one helped her or even told her what she should be doing. At one point, someone said to me ‘I know what you’re thinking but please don’t say it’. I thought, no I’m not going to say a word about this girl not knowing her arse from her elbow, because I can see that no-one is even trying to teach her anything.
I have since been told that the C&A knew that they were being called upon to treat that cow of a UCNW student who was creating uproar re Gwynne the lobotomist, so I wasn’t going to have the benefit of an Angel who knew what she was doing.
Dim problem Top Docs, I am on the side of that Angel – she was a nice girl who was being shafted by you. As were the rest of us you worthless turds.
Now, here’s an interesting story. Liz Stables, the Angel who worked at the Student Health Centre at UCNW in the 1980s and helped facilitate Dafydd’s trafficking gang, trained as an Angel in north Wales and had worked in all the local hospitals in the region. She told me an anecdote involving one newly qualified Angel who was sacked from Llududno Hospital back in the 1980s, because when a Top Doctor told her to warm up some blood, she opened the bag of blood, emptied it into a saucepan and put it on the cooker ring.
I wouldn’t do that to warm up blood and Liz Stables wouldn’t, because someone has familiarised us with the way in which blood is warmed up for clinical use, but what’s the betting that no-one had ever taught that fresh-faced Angel how to warm up blood? If I know anything about the NHS in north Wales, that Angel will have been set up after having been identified as needing to be removed from the inner sanctum of the Angels and Top Docs. That lot screwed up on an hourly basis and people died; furthermore the whole lot of them were running a sex trafficking gang. The newly qualified Angel will almost certainly have raised a concern about some aspect of very serious wrongdoing and the rest of them will have been just waiting for their chance…
Liz Stables was a friend of Dafydd’s. That’s how careers were built, it was entirely unrelated to one’s clinical skills.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

 

Sir Ronnie in action:

  • SILENT WITNESS | REBECCA
In the Waterhouse Report, Ronnie explained that although he was given evidence that John Allen did serially sexually abuse many of the boys in his care at Bryn Alyn and that there were boys who were known to the other kids as ‘Allen’s bum boys’, there was no evidence that John Allen was violent – except for those occasions on which he lost his temper of course, when the temporary loss of control resulted in extreme violence – and furthermore John Allen was a kind and generous man who gave certain boys at Bryn Alyn many thousands of pounds and expensive gifts, such as motorbikes and stereos. Dafydd too was a kind and caring man who was harassed by me mercilessly, as Dafydd’s friend Professor Bluglass confirmed in another Report, compiled in 1989, which was when the kind and generous John Allen was giving his bum boys thousands of quid and motorbikes.
Three years after Dr Mike Denham raised his deepest concerns about the practice of drugging elderly people which the whole of his profession silently endorsed and continue to endorse, Dr Mike was of very great assistance to the old war criminal from Chile.

Andrew John Lees, Professor of Neurology at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London and UCL, helped old Pinochet out by providing medical evidence. In 2011 Lees was named as the world’s most highly cited Parkinson’s disease researcher.

Lees studied medicine at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, which was on the patch of one of the trafficking gangs linked to the north Wales gang. Lees then trained as a neurologist at the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, Paris, UCH and at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

Lees was Director of the Reta Lila Weston Institute of Neurological Studies at UCH, 1998-2012. From 2002 to 2012 Lees served as Director of the Sara Koe PSP Research Centre funded by the PSP Association to conduct research into progressive supranuclear palsy.

In 2006, Lees received the American Academy of Neurology Movement Disorders Life Time Achievement Award. In 2012, he was awarded the Dingebauer Prize by the German Society of Neurology. In 2014 he was awarded the Jay Van Andel Award for outstanding research in Parkinson’s disease. This prize is awarded by the Van Andel Institute which was created by Jay Van Andel co-founder of Amway and a Parkinson’s disease patient.

Jay Van Andel might well be motivated to fund a research institute if he suffered from Parkinson’s himself, but not only do I suspect that the co-founder of Amway would not have the knowledge to decide which the most promising lines of research to follow would be, but the profits from Amway was not exactly clean money. I remember Amway really well, it swept north Wales in the early 1990s and friends in Somerset told me that Amway had arrived there as well. Amway was a pyramid selling con which involved flogging expensive detergents and soaps to people who probably didn’t need them. Amway gripped regions of the UK where there was a lack of secure well-paid work – it was why Amway took north Wales by storm – and it also appealed to better off ruthless money grubbers who thought that they could add Amway to their portfolio and make a quick buck.

In 2015 Lees was awarded the Association of British Neurologists Medal. He received the Bing Spear Award for outstanding contributions towards Saner drug policies in 2016.

Bing Spear was a corrupt civil service mandarin who spent decades at the top of the Home Office Drugs Branch; Bing was Deputy Chief Inspector and then Chief Inspector and what a gift he was to Dafydd and other Top Docs who flogged any drugs requested to anyone who had the dosh to pay for them. From the information available, it seems likely that Bing was an addict himself and involved with serious organised crime (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’). Bing was found dead four days before Sir Peter Morrison was in July 1995, days before Dafydd ‘retired’, clutching in his paws the contract for providing ‘substance abuse services’ for the whole of north Wales (see post ‘The Evolution  Of A Drugs Baron?’) and before the Tory Gov’t told lies about the North Wales Hospital Denbigh now having closed. By that time Ronnie Waterhouse’s ESP had let him know that he would be Chairing the Waterhouse Inquiry, although William Hague didn’t announce it for another year. Meanwhile, Ronnie got on with his tour of Wales, wining and dining with many people who should have asked questions about the activities of Dafydd and the gang but didn’t (see post ‘Heart Of Darkness’).

Throughout 1994 and 1995, the mental health services were, once more, frantically planning and implementing plans in an effort to have me banged up in a secure hospital without trial (see post ‘The Banality Of Evil’).

 

Andrew Lees has also been awarded the Parkinson Canada’s Donald Calne Award and Lectureship for 2017.

Lees has delivered various keynote lectures and memorial lectures worldwide including the UK, Thailand, Budapest and Dublin. Other of his achievements include: Council Member for the Academy of Medical Sciences, UK, National Institute for Health Research Senior investigator, Co-founder and past President of The Movement Disorder Society, Former Co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal ‘Movement Disorders’, UK Government NICE Guidleline Development Group for Parkinson’s Disease (2016-2019), Visiting Professor to the University of Liverpool, Visiting Professor to the Hospital Sao Rafaele, Salvador Brazil, Honorary overseas member of the Academia Nacional de Medicina, Brazil.

In addition to his academic career, Lees has written a book about the  city of Liverpool and co-authored the authorised biography of footballer Ray Kennedy, with Kennedy himself. Ray Kennedy played for Arsenal and Liverpool in the 1970s and early 80s and in Jan 1982 joined Swansea City, but his career ended not long after due to Parkinsons, although he was still a young man. Kennedy was particularly high profile in terms of being a Liverpool player.

Andrew Lees was a longstanding friend of Oliver Sacks, who went to school with Jonathan Miller and remained a close lifelong friend of Miller. Sacks trained at the Middlesex Hospital, Gwynne the lobotomist’s alma mater, an institution which provided Gwynne with lifelong protection. Miller was a Top Doctor, as was his father and Jonathan Miller made some very helpful TV programmes about Madness and how helpful Top Doctors are in the face of Madness in the early 1990s, just when Dafydd and the paedophiles really needed a bit of good PR. Jonathan Miller’s son William worked at the BBC with one of my friends who knew what happened to me in north Wales and was forced out of the BBC soon after Jonathan made those programmes on Madness. Miller and Sacks were big mates with Eric Korn, who was a marine zoologist and had links with UCNW. See post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’ for information on this charming trio and their numerous links to Dafydd and the gang.

Oliver Sacks, like Andrew Lees, also trained at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square and Lees was acknowledged in the preface of Sacks books ‘Awakenings’, a story about treatment of lathargica, which was made into a film starring Robin Williams and ‘The Island of the Colour Blind’, which deals with Parkinsonism.

Robin Williams was found dead in 2014; it was assumed that he’d hung himself, although the reason why was unclear. He had previously experienced drug and alcohol problems as well as depression, but his suicide was attributed to early stage Parkinsons causing his depression.

In his memoir “Mentored by a Madman” Lees explains that his career was influenced by Conan Doyle’s character Sherlock Holmes and by the self-experimentation of William Burroughs.

William Burroughs was famous for his ‘counter-culture’ books detailing his lifestyle, which revolved around an aggressive brand of gay sex accompanied by misgyny and excessive consumption of heroin. What I remember most about William Burroughs’ writing is his description of a corrupt, decrepit old incompetent Top Doctor whom Burroughs and his mates use for their supply of heroin or to patch up the wounds when someone gets shot, but whom they refuse to go anywhere near if one of them is actually ill. I have known since the mid-1980s that north Wales has a Top Doctor of that variety. Unbelievably, he is still there.

 

One of the UK’s leading neurologists of the generation before Andrew Lee, in whose footsteps Lee followed, was Lord John Walton. John Walton was the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and dedicated his life to protecting Dafydd and the gang, which Walton was in an excellent position to do holding numerous powerful roles, including President of the BMA, 1980-82; President of the GMC, 1982-89; Warden of Green College, Oxford, 1983-89; President of the Royal Society of Medicine, 1984-86. Walton was Mr Newcastle-upon-Tyne, when that city supplied the gang in north Wales with both children and staff. See post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’ for more info on John Walton.

In a House of Lords debate in 2015.

 

Enemy Of The Paedophiles in need of treatment for a brain tumour? Ooh, we’ll just give Lord John Walton a ring and see what he thinks.

Lest anyone accuse me of ‘surely this can’t happen’, it can and it does. When D.G.E. Wood and Tony Francis lost their tempers with me when I first raised concerns about Gwynne the lobotomist, they both screamed at me that if I didn’t withdraw my complaint my career would be ruined and no Top Doctor would ever treat me. I have 10,000 documents in my possession which demonstrate that is exactly what they worked very hard to achieve and they were able to nobble every other Top Doc whom they approached, even Top Docs who didn’t like them. Because they were involved with a bunch of gangsters.

Francis has killed himself but Wood is still with us. I haven’t needed life-saving surgery yet Wood, but I know damn well that I wouldn’t get it if I did, so before that ever happens, you’ve got this blog to deal with you worthless criminal murdering bastard. It is well past the time when someone should have dealt with you and your massive network of criminal associates. Higher pay? I’d cut your fucking pay and pensions by half and then have most of you marched out of your sodding consulting rooms in handcuffs and detained until full confessions are made.

Andrew Lees, a Top Doctor with strong links to Merseyside  and the University of Liverpool, knows them all over at The Walton Centre, who find that their clinical skills are so ineffective when called upon to treat Enemies Of The Paedophiles. Andrew probably knows Dr Death, who served as Chancellor of Liverpool University, 1996-09 and was of course a neurologist and psychiatrist himself before he decided that he was destined to become PM (see post ‘Dr Death’).

Gee Dr Death, come and join our party, you’re a Top Doc from Tommy’s who has the full gen on the Westminster Paedophile Ring and can con the electorate into believing that you’re a caring man with principles who Supports The NHS. We don’t want to die Dr Death, please, not us, we like a drink, we live comfortable lives, we’re all developing type II diabetes, we’re at risk of heart attacks, we’ll do whatever the BMA say, not us, please, it’s not as if we are Empowered Service Users who need to be refused NHS treatment or banged up in Risley Remand Centre because Dr DA says so.

Andrew Lees’s expertise in combating Parkinsonian symptoms has had little effect on the prescribing practices of his psychiatrist colleagues, who continue to wield the prescription pad with alacrity with regard to anti-psychotics, although those drugs not infrequently lead to irreversible Parkinsonian symptoms, resulting in Empowered Service Users visibly twitching and grimacing involuntarily until the day that they die, even if they stop the medication. Some Top Docs are acutely aware of this and only prescribe anti-psychotics when they really do feel that there is no other option, but many more, including dear old Dafydd and his mates of course, really enjoyed prescribing ‘medication’ for unknowing patients without giving them any clue as to what could happen to them.

Brown always told me that if you are Dafydd and you need to ruthlessly exclude your victims from society, anti-psychotics are great because if the patients develop tardive dyskinesia, they look like nutters and even if what they are saying is entirely rational no-one will take them seriously. I saw a few prime examples of this.

There was a lady who used to go to the day centre at Hergest called Delyth, who was really nice and very popular with other patients. Delyth had very severe tardive dyskinesia, so severe that when she was on the bus, members of the general public used to give her a wide berth. When Terry Maxwell and Alun Davies elicited the Great Genocide in the run up to the Waterhouse Report and withdrew virtually all facilities for mental health patients including insisting on the closure of the Menai Day Centre, Delyth was one of those who didn’t survive for much longer. She was placed in some sort of old folk’s home in Penmaenmawr, although she wasn’t elderly and she died not long afterwards. Delyth had had the Denbigh Experience, so there was probably a good reason why she had to be marginalised and finished off at such a critical time.

The world leading Springfield Hospital attached to St George’s Hospital Medical School also had a surprisingly high number of patients with tardive dyskinesia, I would see them wandering around clad in clothes purchased from the hospital shop (see previous post), twitching like there was no tomorrow and bloody hell did they look weird. But then so would I had I ever followed the advice of the Top Docs. Not the sort of weird that upset the Top Docs so much and was lovingly documented as evidence of my Dangerousness – pink hair, untoward hats and hairstyles, Doc Martens etc – but really weird. The sort of weirdness that Empowered Service Users exude when they have been left to die after the attentions of the Top Docs.

Here’s Professor Lees, from who’s expertise General Pinochet benefited even if no-one else has:

 

Andrew Lees

 

 

Dr Maria Wyke who provided an additional report on Pinochet seems to have a limited recent internet presence, although she is mentioned in some articles discussing Pinochet’s case. I have found some old journal articles with her name on, including one published in Dec 1987 with Simon Baron-Cohen and Colin Binnie, in ‘Perception’ about synaesthesia. Wyke’s affiliation was given as the Department of Clinical Psychology, at the Institute of Psychiatry. In 1987 the Institute of Psychiatry was heaving with Top Docs who were concealing the crimes of Dafydd et al in north Wales as Alison Taylor, Mary Wynch and I refused to keep quiet. Many of the gang in north Wales had passed through the Institute of Psychiatry themselves during the course of their ‘training’. The Institute of Psychiatry at the time was located at the Maudsley, also heaving with Dafydd’s mates, which was given as Colin Binnie’s affiliation. Baron-Cohen stated his affiliation as the Dept of Psychology, UCL.

Wyke also published an April 1993 article on synaesthesia with Baron-Cohen, John Harrison and Laura H. Goldstein. Harrison’s affiliation was given as the Academic Unit of Neuroscience, Charing Cross Hospital. By April 1993, Dafydd’s gang had pressed charges against me for staring at a social worker, Jackie Brandt, in Safeway’s and I subsequently appeared in Bangor Magistrates Court later that summer. Brandt, who had previously illegally detained me and then refused to answer any questions about the matter, had told the police that I had screamed and sworn at her in Safeways, such that she believed that I was going to attack her. When cross-examined in the witness box she started crying and admitted that I hadn’t said anything to her at all, but I had looked at her. For further details see previous posts, including ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’. My solicitor told me after the case that I would have been found not guilty had I not started laughing when Brandt began crying. This was a woman who was a member of a paedophile gang, who had goose-stepped into the Court glowering at me, got her own name wrong when asked by the magistrates – ‘Jackie Muriel Billings’ – who then perjured herself and had to retract. Of course I laughed, it was ludicrous.

Did this case set a precedent – in the case of transparent perjury, a guilty verdict will be returned if the defendant laughs? Perhaps we should ask the Chairman of the Bench who presided over that case, Gwynfor Evans. Gwynfor was a retired bank manager from Holyhead. God knows what he did when he was in charge of that bank.

It was subsequently recorded upon my medical records by Dr Sadie Francis that I ‘stormed out of the Court, ranting and swearing’. No, I was far too busy laughing, which was why I had been found guilty…

Jackie, it cost me £60 thanks to a bent Bench, but that was a performance of a lifetime, it was memorable. You were trotting around Gwynedd sectioning witnesses and victims of a paedophile gang, you rang the police and had them break somebody’s door down because they hated you and wouldn’t let you in, Gwynedd Social Services were under investigation by the North Wales Police because of allegations of a huge paedophile ring and you forgot your own name. And I was found guilty because I laughed at you.

The North Wales Police concluded in 1993 that there was no evidence of a paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. Lucille Hughes, Dafydd’s mistress and Jackie’s boss, was delighted. The London-based media reported on the investigation into a possible paedophile ring in north Wales.

Meanwhile, at Bangor University, the paedophile gang was causing havoc by levelling fallacious allegations of anti-Welsh racism at Graham Day, a senior sociologist. ‘The Guardian’ provided full coverage of Graham’s wicked ways but forgot to mention that those who were causing the problems included some former social workers employed in Gwynedd. See post ‘Badlands’. At the time Bangor University was still completely under the control of Dafydd’s gang.

 

Laura H. Goldstein who co-authored with Mari Wyke is now Professor of Clinical Neuropsychology at King’s College, London and Honorary Consultant Clinical Psychologist at the Lishman Unit, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. Goldstein’s books include:

  • Goldstein, Laura H; McNeil, Jane E (2004), Clinical neuropsychology : a practical guide to assessment and management for clinicians, Wiley.
  • Cull, Christine; Goldstein, Laura H (2002), The clinical psychologist’s handbook of epilepsy : assessment and management, London.

Goldstein also co-authored ‘Frangou, Sophia, Stuart Donaldson, Michael Hadjulis, Sabine Landau and Laura H. Goldstein. “The Maudsley Bipolar Disorder Project: executive dysfunction in bipolar disorder I and its clinical correlates.” Biological psychiatry 58, no. 11 (2005): 859-864.

Bipolar disorder is still on average not diagnosed until approx 15 years after the condition has developed, is frequently misdiagnosed and very often so poorly managed that the patient’s life is disrupted to a far greater degree than it should be. The best attentions of the Maudsley et al seem to be having very, very little impact on the lives of most people with this condition. David Healy recently published some work which demonstrated quite clearly the sorry state of affairs with regard to bipolar disorder and there has been much comment recently on the way in which bipolar disorder has become an acceptable, even fashionable, illness among high profile people. Try having bipolar disorder when you’re living in north Wales; your lifestyle will not be that of Stephen Fry and you won’t be cultivated in the way that Mr Fry is either. It was noted by people having the Empowered Service User Experience that Stephen Fry went to the US for treatment, although he was happy to make documentaries about bipolar disorder which provided much good PR for the UK Top Doctors.

Stephen Fry is not a stupid man, he knows exactly what life is like for most people with bipolar disorder in the UK and he did not touch on those harsh realities when he was enthusiastically raising awareness and educating the public. A friend recently told me that Stephen is no longer touting himself as a celebrity manic depressive, having been told by a Top Doc that he doesn’t have bipolar disorder after all. This rather proves my point about the Top Doctors and their expertise, but Stephen’s change of status has received very little publicity. There has been no massively promoted BBC series entitled of ‘The Secret Life Of The Incompetent Top Doctors, Who Have Got It Wrong Yet Again’.

 

There are references to another co-author of Wyke’s, John Harrison, a neuropsychologist, in both the UK and the US; I have not had time to find out whether they are the same person or two people working in the same field.

 

I could spend time trawling through everything that these folk have published and who they have published it with, but I have enough here to make the point that when they were early career researchers, they worked with and were mentored by people who were concealing a trafficking gang and perpetrating research fraud.

Simon Baron-Cohen is of course now world famous, he established his reputation in the field of dyslexia and used to turn up as a guest at the School of Psychology at Bangor University when Professor Fergus Lowe ruled over that domain (see previous posts for more info on Baron-Cohen). The Fungus who built his empire entirely upon blackmailing and threatening people in high and low places who had colluded with Dafydd and the gang (see posts ‘He’s Not The Messiah, He’s A Very Naughty Boy’ and ‘Feet In Chains’).

The parents of children whom I know with dyslexic kids are still reporting that they are having terrible trouble getting help from the state school system. There was a quip on Radio 4 the other day from a not very old comedian remembering his terrible school days as a kid with dyslexia and how little understanding or support there was. He observed that the difference between kids who got support and those who didn’t was £400. He was spot on. Parents battle for ages, get nowhere but are told that if they consult a psychologist privately, their child can be assessed and once that happens, the doors to ‘support’ will open. Well they will if their child is at the right sort of school. If they are at a school which still is incapable of supporting dyslexic kids, those with more money give up and send their kids to a private school. I used to work at Hillgrove School in Bangor, a small private school, which was packed with lovely kids who had encountered terrible problems in the local state schools because they were dyslexic and the schools just couldn’t deal with it.

Bangor University’s School of Psychology was a centre of excellence with regard to dyslexia. This reputation was built upon the work of the late Professor Tim Miles, who was a pioneer in the education of dyslexic children (see post ‘Sleeping With The Fishes’). Tim’s pioneering work was carried out among children on Anglesey in the mid-1960s. At the time, Lucille Hughes worked as a social worker on Anglesey, precisely as the Children’s Officer. Dafydd himself was conducting a ‘community health’ project with another member of the gang on Anglesey.

Tim Miles must have seen at least some clues as to what was happening to some kids on Anglesey.

Tim the Enchanter:

  • LE VIDEO SHELF: Tim The Enchanter

The MP for Anglesey at the time was Cledwyn Hughes, later Lord Cledwyn, who spent his career concealing Dafydd’s gang (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’). Lord Cledwyn was a big mate of the parents of one Glenys Kinnock, a girl from Holyhead who became a teacher and had a Windbag of a boyfriend from south Wales, who’s later career as a Professional Windbag received a considerable boost from Lord Cledwyn. The Windbag knew one Tony Francis when they were at Cardiff University.

When I was working at Hillgrove School, Tim’s colleague Anne Cook got very angry with me when she heard me telling one of my friends that I had a lot of dyslexic children in my class at Hillgrove. Ann snapped at me ‘and have you completed the MSc in dyslexia?’ I explained that no I hadn’t, but I had completed some of the SEN modules on the MEd and I had never told anyone that I had completed specialist dyslexia training, presuming that I was being accused of misrepresenting my experience. Cook walked off in silence, with a distinctly frosty aura.

I wondered for ages what is was that had riled Anne Cook that day. I can’t be sure, but I am wondering whether Anne Cook was angered to have come up against evidence of her failure. There she was, Bangor University’s dyslexia expert, yet Hillgrove School was full of kids with dyslexia who’s parents had withdrawn them from the local state schools in despair. The state schools which were providing the training for the student teachers at Bangor University and the subject material for that centre of excellence re dyslexia that was the School of Psychology. The reason why the dyslexic kids coped better at Hillgrove was really very, very simple. There were eight or so kids in the class, so the teacher had much more time to address whatever difficulties the children had. It is not rocket science, this is quietly acknowledged by nearly all teachers and it is often the main reason why parents who’s children encounter difficulties with academic work send them to a private school. If kids are bright and happy and have no problems, they are fine in a class of 30. They are not if they have problems learning.

Whatever expertise Baron-Cohen et al believe that they have, it is not being felt by huge numbers of children with dyslexia in many state schools. Few people will admit that and no-one will admit the rotten roots from which the dyslexia experts have arisen: Dafydd et al in north Wales and Lord Brian Flowers et al in the University of London. See previous posts.

 

Before Professor Simon Baron-Cohen became Mr Big in dyslexia, another name one would hear a great deal about in dyslexia circles was that of Dr Margaret Newton, who worked in the Dept of Psychology at Aston University. Tim Miles was a big pal of Margaret Newton. In the 1970s, Bangor and Aston were the only universities carrying out any research into dyslexia and even in the 1980s, Bangor and Aston led the field. London University didn’t get a look in. Brown knew Margaret Newton, she taught him when he was an undergrad. She was a little old lady who rode a massive motorbike and like Tim Miles, she endeared herself to many people. Like the endearing Tim, the endearing Margaret worked alongside some very unpleasant people.

There was Professor Elwyn Edwards for a start, who invited male freshers to his room for a welcome drink, only to greet them dressed in nought but a silk dressing gown and would then try and seduce them (see post ‘A Vintage Crop’). Above Elwyn Edwards, at the top of Aston University, there was Thatch’s favourite VC, Sir Freddie Crawford, who was as corrupt as they come and had a criminal son who relied upon his dad to get him out of trouble. Crawford junior was found dead in an hotel in Israel, allegedly from a drugs overdose, but that was one of the ways that witnesses to the wrongdoing of Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring tended to go. Then there was Aston’s student doctor, the dreadful Philip Cauthery, who doubled up as a sex therapist, was on the Editorial Board of ‘Forum’ magazine when the small ads were colonised by paedophiles and presided over the highest student suicide rate of any UK university. See previous posts for details on Philip Cauthery, who like Dafydd, was protected from scandal as a result of being a Top Doc.

Freddie Crawford was subsequently appointed Chair of the Criminal Cases Review Commission, which caused a huge row because Crawford was an active Freemason. Freddie Crawford was a big name in Birmingham civic life, which at the same was highly corrupt, partly as a result of the West Midlands Serious Crime Squad. A trafficking gang linked to Dafydd’s also operated in the West Midlands and many kids from the region were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass reigned supreme over the NHS in Birmingham and he was subsequently joined by Tony Francis’s mate Professor Ian Brockington (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’).

I have no idea how much Margaret Newton knew about the serious crime swirling around her, but with Sir Charles Evans and then Professor Eric Sunderland at Bangor along with Fungus and Dafydd and then Freddie Crawford at Aston, nothing will have been clean. I’d be interested to know how Lord Brian Flowers wangled things to ensure that London University was able to start touting itself around as being a centre of excellence in dyslexia.

London University: I know that you’re all big and posh and grand but perhaps you could drop me a line and let me know exactly what the deal was between the Gov’t and the Universities of London, Bangor and Aston re the whistleblowing students from UCNW and Aston who in the 1980s tripped over the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Thanks London!

 

I used to know someone who kept getting my name wrong and calling me Sally Butler. She explained that she kept making this mistake because she knew that my name was the name of one of the Education Acts, either the Baker Act or the Butler Act, but she couldn’t remember which one.

Altogether now, from assorted politicians and people in various universities who take themselves rather more seriously than they deserve to be taken:

An article in ‘The Guardian’ dated 13 Jan 2000, published the week after the ‘six hours’ of ‘medical tests’ which were performed on Pinochet at the Northwick Park Hospital in order to determine his fitness to stand trial, stated that Andrew Lees is a fluent Spanish speaker and that the tests were conducted in Spanish, ‘Pinochet’s native tongue’.

Lees’s status as a medical adviser to the British Boxing Board of Control is mentioned in ‘The Guardian’ article. In which case Lees might like to explain why the BMA mysteriously dropped their opposition to boxing, which in the late 1980s they were determined to outlaw; Dr John Marks, the then President of the BMA really had the bit between his teeth on that matter. The BMA won just about every battle with every Gov’t, but they didn’t win that one. We haven’t heard anything about the dangers of boxing from the BMA for a very, very long time now and boxing is now being advertised as a healthy past-time for young men in danger of going off the rails and even as Empowering for young women. The medical evidence with regard to boxing isn’t in any way controversial; being repeatedly hit on the head is not a good idea and if you’re really unlucky, you can die after one punch, which is still on occasions happening in boxing matches.

So then BMA, what shut you up? Er – perhaps Andrew Lees’s knowledge of the slurry pit which was Dafydd and the gang, which became deeper and deeper and deeper and with which you are intimately involved? It can’t have been the favour that Andrew Lees did for Blair’s Gov’t regarding Pinochet because you’d gone silent with regard to the dangers involved in boxing before then.

 

‘The Guardian’ told us that Maria Wyke was also a fluent Spanish-speaker and ‘specialises in studying brain behaviour relationships… in evaluating and treating people thought to have something wrong with their nervous system.’

Press reports from 2000 stated that Maria Wyke worked at the Devonshire Hospital, London. I don’t think there is a Devonshire Hospital, London, but there is a Devonshire Unit, which is a huge wing of The London Clinic. I assume that is what the press reports are referring to. The London Clinic in which Pinochet was placed under arrest, after arriving there for his back surgery…

The Top Docs can cater to one’s every need when they feel so inclined.

 

It is obvious that these Top Docs of ‘outstanding national and international reputation’ as Jack Straw described them got it completely wrong with regard to their assessment of Pinochet, which can only mean that their tests do not work, or they were seriously incompetent or they knowingly produced misleading reports.

The additional report by Dr Maria Wyke caused particular controversy, as her work was criticised in detail in July 2000 in a report written by Dr Nimisha Patel, Head of Clinical Psychology at the London-based Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture.

 

I was so busy blogging yesterday that I didn’t have time to dig out the names of the Top Doctors who provided the reports on Pinochet, a helpful reader e mailed me the names last night. However, he told me that he couldn’t find the name of the Top Doc who carried out the operation on Pinochet’s back anywhere. Pinochet was placed under house arrest at The London Hospital within days of his arrival there. Pinochet was not a man to go unprepared, he arrived in London with armed bodyguards, who were with him in The London Clinic. Pinochet will have known that the Spanish authorities wanted to put him on trial and were in hot pursuit of an extradition order. So it was certainly convenient that The London Clinic had a Spanish speaking neuropsychologist – Maria Wyke – available to provide an additional report on Pinochet.

Did Pinochet actually have any surgery on his back at The London Clinic? Is it possible that The London Clinic knew that the General might need a helpful neuropsychological medical assessment conducted by an expert fluent in his native tongue – you can’t argue with that! – before he arrived at the clinic with his lumbago? If General Pinochet had tried to claim social security on the basis of that bad back of his, he’d have been accused of swinging the lead.

  • Cold War Killer File: Augusto Pinochet – The Red Phoenix

 

Augusto Pinochet’s regime was responsible for various human rights abuses during its reign, including murder and torture of political opponents. According to a Gov’t commission report that included testimony from more than 30,000 people, Pinochet’s Gov’t killed at least 3,197 people and tortured about 29,000. Two-thirds of the cases listed in the report happened in 1973.

Professor Clive Foss estimates that 1,500–2,000 Chileans were killed or ‘disappeared’ during the Pinochet regime. In October 1979, the ‘New York Times’ reported that Amnesty had documented the disappearance of approximately 1,500 Chileans since 1973.  Among the killed and disappeared during the military regime were at least 663 Marxist MIR guerrillas. The Manuel Rodríguez Patriotic Front, however, has stated that only 49 FPMR guerrillas were killed but hundreds detained and tortured. According to a study in Latin American Perspectives, at least 200,000 Chileans (about 2% of Chile’s 1973 population) were forced to go into exile. Additionally, hundreds of thousands left the country in the wake of the economic crises that followed the military coup during the 1970s and 1980s. Some of the key individuals who fled because of political persecution were followed in their exile by the DINA secret police, in the framework of Operation Condor, which linked South American military dictatorships together against political opponents.

According to Peter Kornbluh in ‘The Pinochet File’ “routine sadism was taken to extremes” in the prison camps. The rape of women was common, including sexual torture such as the insertion of rats into genitals and “unnatural acts involving dogs.” Detainees were forcibly immersed in vats of urine and excrement, and were occasionally forced to ingest it. Beatings with gun butts, fists and chains were routine; one technique known as “the telephone” involved the torturer slamming “his open hands hard and rhythmically against the ears of the victim,” leaving the person deaf. At Villa Grimaldi, prisoners were dragged into the parking lot and had the bones in their legs crushed as they were run over with trucks. Some died from torture; prisoners were beaten with chains and left to die from internal injuries. Following abuse and execution, corpses were interred in secret graves, dropped into rivers or the ocean, or just dumped on urban streets in the night. The body of the renowned Chilean singer, theatre director and academic Victor Jara was found in a dirty canal “with his hands and face extremely disfigured” and with “forty-four bullet holes.”

The practice of murdering political opponents via “death flights”, employed by the juntas of Argentina and Chile, has been the subject of numerous alt-right internet memes, with the suggestion that political enemies be given “free helicopter rides.” In 2001, Chilean President Ricardo Lagos informed the nation that during Pinochet’s reign, 120 bodies had been tossed from helicopters into “the ocean, the lakes and the rivers of Chile”.

 

Margaret Thatcher’s friend. Treated to tea on the Commons terrace. Given the best treatment that the British medical establishment could rustle up which also got him off torture and murder charges :

Now for more background on someone else introduced to readers of this blog in my last post ‘More Dogs That Did Not Bark’, Karl Davies, the Plaid activist who at one point worked for BBC Wales and sent me inadequate replies to my letters to the BBC. I mentioned that I remembered reading that Karl had stood as a Plaid candidate in north Wales in an election back in the 1980s. I have discovered that Karl stood for Plaid in Clwyd North West in the 1987 General Election, on the 11 June. That was the General Election in which everything was up for grabs and the dirty tactics were even dirtier than usual. The Windbag really thought that he was in with a chance and he was out and about in Llandudno and on Anglesey with Mrs Windbag, where he did actually kiss babies and children. Plaid got their hopes up as ever and wanted a good showing across Wales rather than just in their traditional stronghold of the north and the west. After all the effort and everyone keeping quiet about the paedophile gang in north Wales, Thatch romped home.

Documents in my possession show that before that election, Dafydd et al had very carefully planned to get me up to north Wales (I was living in Leicester at the time) a few days after the election, where once I was there, I would be fitted up for a serious offence and imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre. I have evidence that Risley Remand Centre and the Mental Health Act Commission were colluding. It went pear-shaped when a nursing officer didn’t tell as many lies as he was required to do so and by the refusal of Sgt Morgan at Bangor Police Station to play ball. See eg. posts ‘Workers’ Play Time’ and ‘Security, Security’. The nursing officer’s wife later died in the care of Ysbyty Gwynedd at the age of 40 years or so and he subsequently went into hiding after receiving death threats. Sgt Morgan was found guilty of indecently assaulting a teenaged girl in Bangor Police Station and was sacked. The nursing officer who found himself been bitten by the hand of the paedophile gang whom he had politely ignored if not actually fed, seemed to know that Sgt Morgan was going to be found guilty immediately after Sgt Morgan was charged, long before his trial.

Alun Davies, the NHS manager at Ysbyty Gwynedd, had previously bellowed down the phone at me ‘we’ll be putting in a complaint about him’ after I reminded Davies that Sgt Morgan had admitted that ‘they’re all conspiring against you up there’.

Karl Davies polled the least votes out of the four candidates who stood in Clwyd North West in June 1987. Sir Anthony Meyer, the sitting Tory MP held the seat.

Clwyd North West was a very fraught constituency. It covered an area which was/is a paedophiles’ friends’ stronghold and included part of the Colwyn Bay area, which as I have previously described is a favourite location for the higher paid paedophiles’ friends to reside, as well as many police officers, due to the HQ of the North Wales Police being sited there. Dafydd’s umbrella Professor Robert Owen lived at Colwyn Bay (see post ‘In Memoriam – Professor Robert Owen’), as does the former Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council, Huw Vaughan Thomas (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing’) and his wife Enid Rowlands (see post ‘Dirty Rotten Scandals’) and many, many more. Gwynfa Unit, the children’s mental health unit where children were raped, buggered and beaten, was sited at Colwyn Bay and the Angel who ran the Unit, a former Denbigh Angel called Nigel Mannering Berry, lived at Colwyn Bay and in later life was the Director of Colwyn Bay Masonic Hall. Dr Barry Kiehn, the Top Doctor who was attached to the Gwynfa Unit, also lives in Colwyn Bay. See post ‘Don’t Be Silly, He’s Nice’.

In 1983, a civil war broke out in Clwyd West when that bestest of paedophiles’ friends, former Denbighshire social worker and Tory MEP Beata Brookes, did dreadful things in an attempt to become the Tory candidate for Clwyd North West (see post ‘The Celtic Iron Lady And Yet More Recent History’). Sir Anthony, the sitting Tory MP for Clwyd North West, did battle and prevented the corrupt old cow from achieving her ambition, for which we should be forever grateful. Sir Anthony then memorably stood as the stalking horse in a leadership challenge against Thatch in 1987. Sir Anthony was widely ridiculed but it was this action which resulted in Thatch facing a stronger leadership challenge and being ousted in Nov 1990. I very much suspect that Sir Anthony took the view that this really was too much, corrupt fucking police officers trying to fit up the target of a trafficking gang and then stitching up the police officer who protected her. How do I know that Sir Anthony knew about it? Because MI5 had my phone bugged, they’d wired up the hospitals, the police stations etc etc as I have previously described and they knew what was happening to me in 1987.

The security services knew exactly what was going on and it was getting very, very out of hand. Sir Anthony was the sort of old upper crust gent who would have had links with the security services.

On 18 Nov 1987, a fireball at King’s Cross Station killed 31 people. I was due to be travelling through there at the time of the fire, but I was delayed. Since beginning this blog, I have been told that the King’s Cross Fire was supposed to kill me.

MI5 shouldn’t have replaced the Gov’t, they should have obliterated the medical establishment. I and my friends had the evidence which would have allowed them to do that, but they stood by while we all had our lives and careers destroyed.

 

On 9 April 1992, the General Election was held. Once more, the Windbag got his hopes up.

 

ISPs are being pressured to block piracy websites

 

John Major was returned as PM and Rod Richards was elected as the Tory MP for Clwyd North West. Rod Richards is one of those who later admitted that Thatcher knew that Sir Peter Morrison was molesting children.

Peter Morrison stood down at the 1992 General Election.

Some two weeks after the 1992 General Election, a firebomb was thrown into a building in Brighton where a party was underway, to which a number of witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal had been invited. Five people died. See post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’. The man who was alleged to have started the fire was killed when he was hit by a lorry a few days later. A number of other party-goers were found dead in the following years.

The year 1992 saw a flurry of peerages handed out to paedophiles’ friends. Dr Death was one of the lucky winners.

 

To return to Karl Davies, who wanted to enter the fray in Clwyd North West in 1987. Karl Davies was brought up in Abergele, just down the road from Colwyn Bay. North Wales was entertained when back in the 1990s, Abergele was named in the media as being somewhere with a vigorous swinging scene. Dafydd owned a house just down the road in Prestatyn. What did Dafydd do in that house? He held clinics of course. Very odd clinics, because from what I heard when I listened into one of those clinics, there was loud music being played, drinks were being dispensed and there was much noise and raucous laughter. That house was in very bad nick as well, it wasn’t maintained and if I had turned up there for a clinic, I would have left immediately. However, the house was a substantial size and would have been just right if one wanted to hold a party without anyone complaining or indeed even watching what was going on.

Knocking Shop Sticker Pack – Wheel Whores

 

Karl Davies studied law and history at Aberystwyth University, alongside so many who found work with the corrupt lawyers of north Wales. After failing to become the Plaid MP for Clwyd North West, between 1990 and 1993, Karl worked as Parliamentary Editor for BBC Wales, responsible for producing two weekly television programmes and organising all political news coverage for BBC Wales. So Karl was in that post during the 1991-93 North Wales Police investigation into the possible paedophile ring, which drew a complete blank. No evidence found of any such thing. Neither did any of the chaos and craziness which surrounded Dafydd et al ever find its way onto BBC Wales or indeed any part of the BBC.

Karl had worked for the BBC prior to 1990, but I’m not sure when; he had produced the BBC Radio Cymru programme ‘Heddiw’.

In 1993, Karl became Chief Executive of Plaid, remaining in post until 2002. In May 2002, Karl’s career took a new direction. The enthusiastic Plaid activist who had even stood for Parliament, took up the post of Director of the Welsh branch of the NAHT (National Association of Head Teachers).

In 2002, I was forced out of my teaching job after Keith Fearns, the leader of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team, paid a visit to the Headmaster of Hillgrove School and told him that I was a dangerous nutter who ‘carries knives in her handbag’. I didn’t have a handbag at the time, with knives or anything else in it. The Headmaster told Fearns that he had never had any concerns about me, whereupon Fearns left. Over the next few days, the Headmaster and his wife received numerous telephone calls from the parents of children, who had been told that one of the teachers was a dangerous loony. The person who had told them this was another parent, who was employed as a psychiatrist at the Hergest Unit. I told Hillgrove that I’d stand down to save them any more grief. It wasn’t sufficient, the paedophile gang carried out a further attack on Hillgrove School, which caused very much more trouble than Fearns’s lies about me had (see previous posts).

I will be blogging more about this soon, but at this stage I’ll make the following observations now that Hillgrove has closed, although I won’t provide full details of events, because I do not want the former pupils to be identified. At Hillgrove, there were two children of social workers whom it was believed were being sexually abused at home. One of those children, some five years later, as a teenager, carried out a serious sexual assault on a little girl. A Hergest Unit assessment maintained that he posed no risk. There was one child of a Top Doc at Ysbyty Gwynedd who was being sexually abused by a relative. There were two children of police officers who were known to be subjected to serious physical violence at home. There were two children who’s parents were known to be involved with serious crime, mainly drug dealing and one of the children told me that he had been threatened with a gun by his mum’s boyfriend. There was one child who’s mother was a sex worker. She is now employed as an Angel at Ysbyty Gwynedd. I don’t know how, because although she began training as an Angel years ago in Derbyshire, I’m fairly sure that she didn’t qualify.

None of these serious child protection issues were ever reported. Hillgrove School knew exactly what would have come their way if they had ever pointed a finger at a Top Doctor, a social worker or a police officer. I would not be surprised if these abusive criminal parents in professional positions were used as a stick to beat Hillgrove with when they employed me.

Now, the other staff at Hillgrove. One was the wife of Peter Field, the former Head of the School of English at Bangor University. Peter Field worked at Bangor University when the paedophiles’ friends ran the institution and he knew all about them. He also knew that Dave Nunn, one of his colleagues, had been destroyed by the gang after a period of illness. I knew Dave from the Hergest Unit. Dave disappeared from north Wales a few weeks after reading the laughable affidavit concerning my alleged crimes that Dafydd swore into Liverpool High Court at the end of 1994 and telling the Top Doctors, including some Top Doctors from outside of north Wales who were requested to section him but refused, what was in that affidavit. See previous posts. Another Hillgrove teacher was Sally Atkinson, who’s father was John Webster, who had been a lecturer at Bangor Normal College, at the hub of the paedophiles’ friends. Sally Atkinson had regular socials with Gwynedd social workers, including Judith and Macolm Stammers, who had worked with Dafydd at Denbigh and with everyone at the Hergest Unit. Sally Atkinson waxed lyrical about how Hillgrove School was failing to adhere to child protection procedures. So were Sally Atkinson and all her mates in the trafficking gang… Another teacher had been the neighbour of one of Dafydd’s victims when they had both lived near Bethesda back in the 1980s and she knew about much of the wrongdoing involved in his arrest and imprisonment. Another teacher was the neighbour of Adrian and Alison Bell, two retired members of staff of the Plant Biology Dept at Bangor University who, like Peter Field, knew all about the trafficking gang. Adrian was one of those who simply ignored me when I told him that Brown was receiving death threats. Adrian also ignored the pleas for help from two other students whom he knew were being targeted by the gang and were being seriously harassed by the Drug Squad. Another teacher at Hillgrove was married to someone who worked at the Hergest Unit and knew how badly the patients were treated.

I was not the only teacher at Hillgrove who was targeted by the gang. I was friends with another teacher who was living with a violent man and this was known; she was sporting bruises. He threatened to kill her if she tried to leave. I knew her well and she was very frightened. One day, she summed up the courage and told him that she was off. He contacted Hillgrove School and told them that she was a drug addict. Her GP confirmed this. She was sacked. The drugs to which she was addicted were benzodiazepines, which had been prescribed by the GP who knew that she was living with a man of whom she was terrified. They lived in Llandudno – Dafydd’s territory.

There is very much more that I could say regarding the criminal methods used by the low-life employed as Top Docs, Angels, social workers and police officers who caused such chaos in order to force me out of my job at Hillgrove, but I am not going to compromise other targets and victims.

There was another Hillgrove parent of two of my former pupils whom I need to mention. She used to work as an Angel in Denbigh and she staffed Bryn Golau Ward when I was illegally imprisoned by Dafydd in the winter of 1986/87. She was one of the nicer nurses and she spent time telling me of at least some of the laws which Dafydd had broken. The documents in my possession are covered in her protests regarding what was happening to me; she recorded it all and provided full details of the laws which were broken, the ‘deal’ that Dafydd struck with Superintendent Roberts at Bangor Police Station to have me wrongly arrested and illegally imprisoned and of how Dr Neil Davies was also part of it. Her children had no idea that I had known their mum before they were born. Her daughter did tell me that long ago her mum worked at a ‘terrible, terrible hospital in Denbigh’ and that she left because it was so bad.

That nurse is now dead. She was taken ill very suddenly, at about 40 yrs old and died in the care of Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. She died just a few weeks after I was forced out of my job at Hillgrove.

Wendy Gough-Hughes – another witness who is now dead. All the patients who were in Bryn Golau Ward with me are dead and so is the one honest Angel who dared raise concerns about what was happening.

Dafydd and Fearns, you have a great deal of explaining to do.

 

Do you wish that perhaps you hadn’t started all this Top Doctors?

Back to Karl Davies!

Upon being appointed as Director of NAHT in Wales, Karl stated that he had only ever intended to stay with Plaid Cymru in the short term: ‘I don’t see myself as moving out of the political process: I will be involved in politics in a different way. It might be more satisfying: being involved intensively in one area’. Karl stated that education ‘is the most important political field in Wales at the moment. And Jane Davidson, Assembly Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning, is keen to work with unions to develop a Welsh agenda’.

Jane Davidson is from Birmingham and has a background in education herself. When she was Minister for Education, Jane found herself in the middle of a scandal after it was realised that Jane had authorised the transfer of £2 million from ELWA,  a ‘learning and training organisation’, which slipped through ELWAs hands into the hands of another company who could not explain where the dosh had gone. Neither had Gov’t accounting procedures been followed and other irregularities had not been disclosed when requested.

The Chair of ELWA at the time was Enid Rowlands. Enid is a ‘proud north Waleian’ who refused to relocate to south Wales when appointed as Chair of ELWA, nearly all of whose staff were in south Wales. Enid is married to Huw Vaughan Thomas, who was Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council when the paedophile gang were busy within. Huw was then appointed as Auditor General for Wales, after the previous Auditor General for Wales, Jeremy Colman, was imprisoned for the possession of child porn.

It gets better.

After the £2 million fiasco and the redundancy of nearly 100 staff, Enid refused to resign as Chair of ELWA. An interim Chief Exec had been appointed – Dr Peter Higson. Higson was an Executive Director of the North Wales Health Authority when one Enid Rowlands was the Chair. Enid Rowlands is the former Chair of Victim Support; served on the GMC for 8 years; has served as a member of the North Wales Police Authority, as a member of the S4C Authority and has been/is a member of the BUPA Council. Enid is the former Chair of Education and Skills Wales, which was responsible for all post-16 education and training in Wales outside HE.

The icing on the cake is that Enid was and might still be the Chair of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority.

Enid has a degree in psychology. What’s the betting that degree was undertaken in the Dept of Psychology at Bangor, under the watchful eye of dear old Dafydd and the paedophiles’ friends?

After ELWA imploded, Dr Peter Higson bagged himself a new job, as Chief Exec of the newly created HIW (Health Inspectorate Wales). After some nine years at the helm, Higson left HIW, to become Chair of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. Higson’s early career had been as a clinical psychologist in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and then as the manager of that institution, while Dafydd kept the victims of the trafficking gang in the dungeon out there. HIW was declared as not being fit for purpose immediately after Higson departed.

See post ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ for more information on the putrid network of this little bunch.

 

 

To return to Karl Davies. When joining NAHT as Director, Karl explained: ‘Coming from politics, I would be in a good position to assist NAHT in their reaction to policies and in the lead they give to change in Wales’.

No-one seems to have mentioned the words ‘conflict of interest’ to Karl, but then no-one mentioned them to Peter Higson and Enid Rowlands either. They are not words that one hears as often as one should, particularly in north Wales. Indeed, Karl’s huge conflict of interest was positively embraced by his new employers: ‘I chose Karl Davies because he has enormous experience at putting over a message, both through the media and through politics,’ said David Hart, General Secretary of the NAHT. (I do not know if this David Hart is the mad right wing figure who used to lurk in the shadows and advise Thatcher.) ‘He has substantial political connections, with a particularly Welsh dimension. His Plaid Cymru background will enable him to make effective representation at the Assembly level.’

Neither had Karl long left his political ambitions behind. Karl had stood for selection as the Plaid Parliamentary candidate for Ynys Mon (Anglesey) at the previous General Election, ie. 2001. Ynys Mon was won that year by Albert Owen, the Labour candidate.

There was a little local difficulty in terms of education on Ynys Mon at the time, in the form of Holyhead School. It was in meltdown, as a consequence of the gross incompetence of the Head, Margaret Chantrell and her fuckwit of a Deputy, Gerald Hewitson. I undertook one of my teacher training placements at Holyhead School in 2001 and had nothing but aggro from Gill Dennis, the students’ mentor and Hewitson, the ‘senior mentor’. I was not alone – Dennis and Hewitson maintained that all the trainee teachers but one were so terrible that we should all be failed. They worked particularly hard to fail one student within days of him arriving. We never worked out what it was that he was supposed to have done that was so terrible, but Dennis told us all how much she hated him within days of our arrival. Dennis claimed that he was ‘unprofessional’. Er, OK Dennis, pots and kettles come to mind. Hewitson’s golden good-bye to one student teacher was to sexually harass her on her last day. Bangor University received constant representation from student teachers at Holyhead School regarding unfair practice on their placements.

The parents of Holyhead were not happy with Chantrell either. The train into Bangor in the morning was full of kids who’s parents had refused to send them to Holyhead School. Chantrell and Hewitson’s response to this was to berate the citizens of Holyhead for ‘not supporting’ them. I witnessed the way in which Hewitson spoke to the children’s parents and he spoke to them in exactly the same way as he spoke to their kids – very rudely.

On the last day of my placement, Gill Dennis told me that she hated Holyhead School and only volunteered to be a mentor for the student teachers in order to elicit a glowing reference from Hewitson, to enable her to find a job at another school.

Gill Dennis was pretty much a one-off among the classroom teachers at Holyhead, most of them were very nice and very friendly. The school was only in bits because of the senior managers. The staff had no confidence in Chantrell and Hewitson and Chantrell was hardly ever in the school anyway. She spent most of her time ingratiating herself to the officials in the Welsh Assembly because she wanted a job there. Presumably Chantrell was on good terms with Jane Davidson.

Chantrell did not get her job in the Assembly and she disappeared from Holyhead School after it could no longer be denied that she was the problem and the number of children at the school fell by half as hundreds and hundreds of them were withdrawn by their parents.

For more details of the mismanagement of Holyhead School, see previous posts.

As for all those ‘unsuitable’ student teachers whom Holyhead School demanded that Bangor University should fail, they all went on to teach without doing anything dreadful, although of course I faced serious allegations from the paedophile gang within a year of qualifying. Most of the people whom I did teacher training with at Bangor did leave teaching within a few years, because teaching is basically in a mess. Many of them moved into jobs with universities. I only know of one of my peers who came unstuck. He didn’t undertake a placement at Holyhead and he was never flagged up as being a cause for concern while he was a student. This young man bagged a job at at school near Colwyn Bay and was later obliged to resign after a sexual relationship with a sixth former, but I don’t know the details. That young man was offered his job after I was shortlisted for the same job. I have been recently told that I didn’t get that job because just before the interview, the school received a phone call warning them that they had a dangerous nutter sitting in the interview room…

 

Karl Davies knows the man who was the Plaid Parliamentary candidate for Ynys Mon at the 2005 General Election, Eurig Wyn. Eurig didn’t win the seat, the Labour MP Albert Owen retained it. However, Eurig Wyn was an old hand at politics, he had served as the Plaid MEP for north Wales, 1999-04. So Eurig was in that seat at the time of the publication of the Waterhouse Report and its aftermath. One would have thought that having previously worked as journalist for the BBC, Eurig Wyn might have had a few thoughts on the Waterhouse Inquiry…Prior to his selection as the Plaid candidate in 2005, Eurig Wyn had spent about a year building up a profile in Ynys Mon; the seat was one of Plaid’s target seats for 2005, but Labour held on.

Eurig was the region’s MEP when Holyhead School was sinking like a stone. He didn’t say a word, but then neither did Albert Owen. Instead Albert was happy to provide a bit of PR for Holyhead School, he proudly told everyone that he was an old boy. Holyhead School has hosted a bigger star than Albert in the dim and distant past though – Baroness Windbag is a former old pupil of Holyhead!

Glenys, that school and indeed the residents of Holyhead could have really done with your help at the time. The Baroness must have had her hands full with other duties. What was she busy with precisely? Well, between 1999-09, Glenys was an MEP for Wales! Prior to that, Glenys had been the MEP for South Wales East, 1994-99. Little wonder she missed the Waterhouse Inquiry into child abuse on her home patch, although she could have always have asked the Windbag’s mate Tony Francis if he knew anything about it all. Ooh – the child molester George Thomas had spent decades as a Labour MP in south Wales, the Windbags knew him very well… South Wales also hosted Ron Davies who has some interesting past-times. Ron was still a Labour MP and indeed Secretary of State for Wales when Glenys was an MEP for South Wales East.

Glenys might have noticed something else on her home patch of south Wales at the time of the Waterhouse Inquiry though. The huge scandal involving John Owen, a drama teacher at Ysgol Gyfun Rhydfelen in Pontypridd. Owen was a big name in Welsh language children’s writing and drama for young people and wrote/directed the S4C teenagers series ‘Pam Fi Duw’ (Why Me God). John Owen had been sexually abusing his pupils and it transpired young people in theatres, music festivals etc as well for decades. There had been serious complaints about him at least as far back as the early 1980s and Mid-Glamorgan County Council, the WJEC exam board and of course Ysgol Rhydfelen, had ignored or concealed every one of them. Ron Davies had been employed as an education adviser by Mid-Glamorgan Education Authority while John Owen worked at the school.

John Owen was finally arrested and charged and he killed himself – at least it was presumed that he had died by his own hand – just before his trial in Oct 2001. After his death, as more and more former pupils and their parents came forward, all those people who had stood by John Owen swearing that he was innocent admitted gradually that yes, er, we did know. Including his girlfriend. After John Owen was charged, HTV continued working with his material. Menna Richards, a senior exec with BBC Wales, was one of many who attended Owen’s funeral.

I do not think for one second that John Owen’s friends and colleagues should have abandoned him and demanded that he be buried in unconsecrated ground. But they did know what he was doing, they lied their arses off and told the kids who were trying to escape his attentions that they were the liars.

For the full story on John Owen, see post ‘Yet More Inglorious Bastards’.

 

After Karl’s change of career in 2002 and his burning ambition to become Director of the NAHT in Wales, what with him realising how important education was in Wales, people must have been a little surprised when in 2003 Karl was up and off again, after having found himself a new job! On 1 August 2003 the BBC issued a press release stating that Karl had been appointed as the Secretary for BBC Wales. As the mad mother in the horror film ‘Carrie’ said ‘the Devil has returned to his own…’

Here’s what the BBC said:

BBC Wales has named Karl Davies, Director of the National Association of Head Teachers in Wales, as its new Secretary.

The new post – which involves leading the accountability process for BBC Wales and supporting the Broadcasting Council for Wales – is key to the success of BBC Wales in fulfilling its obligations to viewers and listeners.

For Karl, who spent nine years as Plaid Cymru’s Chief Executive, it is a return to his roots.

He spent three years as Parliamentary Editor for BBC Wales from 1990 to 1993, responsible for producing two weekly television programmes and organising all political news coverage for BBC Wales, and previously produced the BBC Radio Cymru programme Heddiw.

Brought up in Abergele, he studied law and history at University of Wales, Aberystwyth, and in the 1980s stood as a parliamentary candidate in Clwyd North West.

Karl is delighted to return to BBC Wales.

“I worked there for four years and it was one of the happiest periods of my life,” he said.

“It’s an organisation in which I believe very strongly and I’m glad to be coming back and contributing at a particularly exciting time.

“The BBC, of all organisations, is the one that has risen to the challenge of devolution in the widest sense, and it’s an exciting time to be involved.”

Professor Merfyn Jones, the BBC’s National Governor for Wales who chairs the Broadcasting Council for Wales, said: “I am delighted to welcome Karl Davies back to BBC Wales.

“He has all the skills that this very demanding job as The Secretary requires and I look forward to working with him in this rapidly changing world of broadcasting.”

And BBC Wales Controller Menna Richards said she was pleased to be welcoming Karl to the team.

“Karl’s vast experience in the many institutions of Welsh public life has equipped him with the qualities needed to lead our accountability process in this period of change, with the establishment of the new media regulator Ofcom and our first steps in the formal process of reviewing the BBC’s Royal Charter,” she said.

PRINTABLE VERSION

 

What was I doing by the time that Karl decided that the BBC were in need of his talents once more and that he remembered how happy he was when he had worked there all those years ago, before he tried to enter Parliament and then gave up politics and decided that it was the arena of education for him? I had by then begun a PhD at Bangor University, the institution of which Merfyn Jones was then VC. I had left teaching after the paedophiles’ friends caused havoc and tried to have me struck off the teaching register. That hadn’t actually happened, because a junior Gov’t Minister had cleared my name. That Minister was a friend of Merfyn’s.

Karl, how ever is it that wherever I went, there, high above me in the superstructure, was you? I suspect that Merfyn might have asked himself the same question. Indeed, before I knew anything about Karl Davies, one of my colleagues at Bangor University who was under fire from the paedophiles’ friends himself noticed the aggro that Merfyn was getting and said to me ‘have you noticed how Merfyn always seems to be surrounded by these very difficult people wherever he goes?’ The same man later cited Karl as being one of those very difficult people….

I notice that in the small print, on the BBC press release, there are the words ‘printable version’. Would someone like to send me the unprintable version of the press release when it was realised that Karl fucking Davies was back?

 

After Ron Davies finally had to bow out of the Labour Party following the Moment of Madness on Clapham Common and then that business of Looking For Badgers, he joined Plaid. See post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.

 

Karl Davies was succeeded as Chief Executive of Plaid by Dr Dafydd Trystan Davies, who was Chief Exec, 2002-07. Dafydd Trystan Davies is a Welsh academic and politician and since 2013 has been Chair of Plaid. Dafydd Trystan Davies was born in Aberdare and now lives in Grangetown, Cardiff. He went to school at Ysgol Rhydfelen and was there when John Owen worked there and was abusing his pupils. Dafydd then went onto Aberystwyth University, gaining a doctorate for his work on Globalisation and the Welsh economy.

Dafydd Trystan Davies was Plaid’s Parliamentary candidate for the Cynon Valley at the 2010 General Election and was the Party’s candidate for the Welsh Assembly for the same constituency the following year. In July 2013 he was selected as Plaid’s Welsh Assembly candidate for the Cardiff South and Penarth seat, for the elections which took place in 2016.

I’m fairly sure that Merfyn has now stepped down from all public positions and has retired. What will Karl and Dafydd Trystan do with themselves??? Someone asked me last year if I knew where Merfyn was now living and I said that I didn’t. He’s probably gone to the fucking moon to get away from this lot.

One more snippet. My post ‘I Told You I Was Trouble’ described the Graduation Ceremony of Dysfunction that took place at Bangor University after Merfyn had stepped down as VC. I mentioned that Sir Simon Jenkins was the guest of honour that year. Sir Simon did of course double up as the Chairman of the National Trust for many years. Previous posts have described the numerous links that very senior figures in the National Trust had with Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Lucille Hughes took up voluntary work in her old age. Lucille volunteers with the National Trust at Penrhyn Castle near Bangor, which back in the 1980s employed all those victims of the paedophile gang in minimum wage, summer time jobs (see post ‘That’s Entertainment’)…

Sir Simon Jenkins is best known as that towering figure of journalism, a former Editor of ‘The Times’. Sir Simon owns a second home (although there are allegations that it may be his third home) at Aberdyfi in Gwynedd.

I Told You I Was Trouble

My post ‘A Discovery Of Witches’ mentioned the many unfortunate events which befell the former MP Denis MacShane and his former partner newsreader Carol Barnes, as well as Carol’s children. Carol knew a great deal about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the branch of it run by Dafydd and John Allen’s gang when she lived with Denis MacShane. Denis MacShane was the only MP who was imprisoned as a result of the Parliamentary expenses scandal, although his fiddling was not on a greater scale than that of some other MPs. MacShane was sentenced for fraud – he spent part of his sentence in HMP Belmarsh, a high security prison used for those convicted of terrorist offences, among others – by Justice Nigel Sweeney in 2014.

Sir Nigel Hamilton SweeneyMr Justice Sweeney, studied law at the University of Nottingham. Ken Clarke practised as a barrister in Nottingham before he was elected for a Nottingham constituency. Nigel Sweeney was called to the Bar in 1976 at the Middle Temple, where he was made a Bencher in 1997. Sir Ronnie Waterhouse was a leading light in Middle Temple; Ronnie was a Bencher and also served as Treasurer for some years.

Prior to being appointed a High Court judge, Sweeney practised as a barrister from 6 King’s Bench Walk. As a barrister, Sweeney was prosecuting counsel in a number of notable criminal trials, including those of the perpetrators of the 1984 Brighton bombing and Michael Stone, who was convicted of the 1996 murders of Lin and Megan Russell. The Russells were murdered in Kent, where they had lived for just three weeks after having moved there from Gwynedd. There was no forensic evidence against Michael Stone; he was arrested after a Top Doctor rang the police and told them that Stone fitted the ‘profile’ of the person whom the police believed committed the murder. Stone was an addict who had grown up in care where he had been sexually and physically assaulted. Before Lin and Megan were killed, a secure psychiatric unit refused to treat Michael Stone because they believed that he was ‘dangerous’. When Lin’s husband Shaun Russell revealed this on Radio 4, the NHS organisation concerned denied it. Shaun was later proved to be correct.

Sir Robert Francis QC, the barrister who acted for Drs Tony and Sadie Francis when they tried to have me imprisoned in 1991, Chaired the Inquiry into the care and treatment of Michael Stone. Robert Francis found serious ‘failings’ but as is standard practice in such cases, Francis played down just how utterly useless the NHS and social services were. See previous posts.

Michael Stone has always denied killing Lin and Megan and his sister also maintains that he is innocent. Stone and his legal team believed that the forensic examination of a shoelace that was found at the scene of the crime could clear his name. The shoelace was ‘lost’ in transit between the police and another agency.

After Lin and Megan were killed, Shaun moved back to north Wales with Josie, his daughter who was badly injured by whoever killed her mum and sister. Shaun is a biologist who works at Bangor University – I’m fairly sure that he worked at the University before the family moved to Kent.

Shaun’s family were attacked by someone who bludgeoned them over the head – in July 1996, the month after William Hague announced the Waterhouse Inquiry. Paul Bates, the man who threatened to kill Brown in 1983 – my requests for help from Dr D.G.E. Wood, the GP who ran the Student Health Centre and Dr Adrian Bell, my tutor in the School of Plant Biology were ignored – some years later tracked Brown down and tried to kill him by bashing his head against the pavement. Bates went looking for Brown again in 1996 but Brown had covered his tracks well.

Excuse me police – can you wake up from that very deep slumber of yours please? You’ve been snoring for so long that you’re now in competition with Sleeping Beauty, the central character in the fairy tale which was later adapted by the Brothers Grimm.

As a High Court judge, Sir Nigel presided over the 2013 trial of the former Lib Dem MP and Secretary of State for Energy and Change Chris Huhne and his ex-wife, Vicky Pryce, for perverting the course of justice (see post ‘A Discovery Of Witches’). Denis MacShane is the former partner of Vicky Pryce. Sweeney was the Presiding judge in the trial of Rolf Harris for various counts of indecent assault dating back to the 1960s.

In Feb 2015, Nigel Sweeney wrote an article for ‘The Sunday Times’, on the theme of ‘justice must always be seen to be done’.

I don’t need to comment.

 

 

Bangor University publish a magazine called the ‘Bangoriad’, for Bangor alumni. I was introduced to the joys of the ‘Bangoriad’ by a friend of mine when I worked at Bangor. The obituaries in the ‘Bangoriad’ are wonderful, a great many of them are so obviously obits of paedophiles’ friends. One man who’s obit appeared in the ‘Bangoriad’ was Professor Wynn Humphrey  Davies, who died in June 2007.

Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies was described in the ‘Bangoriad’ as ‘a remarkable man who dedicated his life to the service of Bangor University after a distinguished academic career spanning 40 years. He had graduated from Bangor in the 1930s, spent a short period as a member of staff before becoming a Lecturer, then Reader at Imperial College and finally Professor of Electrical Engineering at Queen Mary College, London. He became a member of the University Council in Bangor in the mid-1970s and served on it for 29 years, chairing the University’s Finance Committee for 23 years. He was instrumental in establishing the University’s Development Trust (for fund-raising purposes) during the centenary in 1984 and he Chaired the Trustees for 16 years until 2000. He was awarded an honorary doctorate of the University of Wales in 1985, and was made a Freeman of the City of London in 1996. He received an MBE in 2002.’

Dr David Roberts, the University Registrar, was quoted as saying: ‘Wynn was a man of immense intellectual energy, a profound thinker about higher education policy, and he had a restless drive to get things done. He will be missed by all who knew and worked with him.’

Dr David Roberts was an admirable figure, who was known to be performing valiant work with regard to defusing the bombs that the paedophiles’ friend planted around the University, but sadly there were so many paedophiles’ friends planting so many bombs that Dr Roberts couldn’t always get there in time. We used to marvel that Dr Roberts looked in such good form considering the stress that he must have incurred heading off the paedophiles’ friends at every turn. One of my friends observed that Dr Roberts looked in such good nick in compared to most of the other senior staff at Bangor. He commented that David Roberts had sparkling eyes and was the picture of health, whereas most of the others looked a bit rough and had very obviously attended too many University buffets.

I only ever saw David Roberts look worried on one occasion and that was when Sophie Wessex aka Mrs Prince Edward was on a visit to Bangor University. The Lord Lieutenant of Gwynedd was at that time Huw Daniel, the corrupt judge who was involved in the attempt to stitch me up for ‘threats to kill’ in 2004 (see post ‘Interesting Happenings In The Legal System’) and Huw Daniel was in the party accompanying Sophie. I was walking past just as the fat crook emerged into the car park with Sophie and Dr Roberts. David Roberts went pale when he saw me – everybody knew what Daniel had been involved in and they also knew that my office wall was covered in newspaper clippings of Daniel, accompanied by satirical comments – and looked seriously worried. Sorry about that Dr Roberts, I honestly wouldn’t have said a word to the bent bastard on University premises, I was waiting for the right time to expose him by the might of the pen. Or indeed the keyboard.

One fat crook dressed up like General Pinochet, presenting a cut glass something or other to a lucky prize-winner:

 

Dr Laurence Chesterman – Behind The Facade – Service ...

 

When Huw Daniel thought that he was going to be sending me to prison for ‘threats to kill’ – before the case against me collapsed – he was very rude about Bangor University in open Court in Caernarfon. He was very cross that they had given me a place to do a PhD and that my PhD supervisor wrote a letter in support of me.

Huw, do you happen to know why there was an organised attempt to undermine the VC of Bangor University who was in post when I was undertaking my PhD and for the following few years? Indeed, did you know anything about the plan by some of the paedophiles’ friends to frame him for a criminal offence? Huw, did you know that after you failed to have the opportunity to imprison me on the basis of the perjury of the staff of the Hergest Unit, that someone tried to have me struck off the teaching register nonetheless, but that the junior Gov’t Minister who cleared my name was a friend of the VC of Bangor University?

After the charge of ‘threatening to kill’ was withdrawn, Huw Daniel praised the conduct of the staff of the Hergest Unit. He also told the press that Alun Davies – the corrupt manager of the Hergest Unit who had perjured himself – as well as his family no less, were ‘victims’ of mine. Huw Daniel was the judge with responsibility for Mental Health Tribunals in Wales.

Huw Daniel’s father, J.E. Daniel, was one of the early members and Presidents of Plaid, along with Saunders Lewis. Dafydd was friends with Saunders Lewis when Dafydd was a junior Top Doctor.

I think that there has only been one case in which a British judge has been convicted and imprisoned. Hey Huw, do you think that Wales can provide the second case? I know a great many people who’d be delighted to wave you off in the meat wagon. Including all those poor sods who when they were kids in care were buggered, beaten to a pulp and then fitted up by Dafydd and the paedophile gang.

Don’t bend over in the showers to pick up the soap Huw, Mr Big might be standing behind you…

One of the Hergest Unit patients who had been illegally imprisoned by Dafydd used to have a great time ringing him up and saying that sort of thing and Dafydd used to go apeshit. This man used to tell me that Dafydd seemed to be really homophobic and hated any jokes about homosexuality. So of course Dafydd was on the receiving end of quite a lot of them. One day poor old Dafydd couldn’t take it any more and he screamed down the phone ‘if you make any more offensive and obscene calls to this house I’ll report you to the police’. Only Dafydd screamed that at me. When it very obviously wasn’t me making the calls. Not that it held old Dafydd back. He then compiled an affidavit of fiction for the High Court in Liverpool in which he claimed that I was ringing him up making the calls (see post ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’)…

When those calls were being made, everyone knew that Dafydd was shagging female patients, but the person who made those calls and I had no idea that Dafydd was running the paedophile gang which targeted the boys in the children’s homes in north Wales. I didn’t realise that all the abuse and trafficking in north Wales was the work of one gang – Dafydd’s. I knew that Dafydd targeted female mental health patients and I also knew that girls in care and women with learning disabilities were being abused as well as boys in care, but I thought that it was the work of different groups of predators who were going for different groups of victims. No, it was a free for all.

On one occasion, years after the Waterhouse Report but not long before Operation Pallial, I told Ella Fisk, a senior nurse at the Hergest Unit, that I was convinced that Dafydd was involved with the paedophile ring in some way but I didn’t quite know how and Ella absolutely assured me that I was wrong, saying ‘Dafydd’s never been involved with child psychiatry’. No, but his colleagues were and his mistress, children’s social worker Lucille Hughes, was Director of Gwynedd Social Services. Furthermore, Dafydd would ‘treat’ the parents of the children targeted: deem those parents incapable of looking after their kids, thus ensuring that the kids would be taken into care; diagnose them as psychotic if they complained about what was happening to their kids; or that old staple, maintain that it was they who had abused their children, no-one else. Dafydd’s main function however was to enter the arena when the kids were young adults and declare them ‘schizophrenic’ if they ever told anyone what had happened to them in the children’s homes. Just to ensure that no-one would ever take a witness statement from them, Dafydd and the gang would then fit them up for a criminal offence.

I think that they must have gone really bonkers when they decided to try the same thing with a Vice Chancellor. Dafydd  – a man who cut his teeth on former kids in care, the learning disabled and mental health patients, then he graduated onto postgrads studying in London Medical Schools and then he planned to go for the jackpot and frame a VC who’d been Governor of the BBC.

 

Weird But True!

 

Dafydd, you are truly crackers, as is everyone who let you get away with it all.

Lord John Walton of Detchant, the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne:

  • Appointment with the Dean - City Church Newcastle

 

Dr David Roberts will be forever remembered for presiding over the Graduation Ceremony of Dysfunction after the VC, who was the target of a full blown onslaught from the paedophile gang and their friends, retired (see post ‘A Discovery Of Witches’). Because the VC had departed, there was a hiatus before a new VC arrived and the paedophiles’ friends ran riot in the way that kids do if the teacher has to leave the classroom. The paedophiles’ friends did everything possible to cause problems at the graduation ceremony. The paedophiles’ friends believed that they had triumphed because the University had recently made an announcement saying that the VC wasn’t going to work out his notice as planned, he was leaving immediately. As any fule kno, that was because he had been appointed as a Spad to the Welsh Gov’ts Education Minister and he felt that it would be a conflict of interest to serve in both roles. One of the paedophiles’ friends put a rumour around that the VC had been caught helping himself to the University funds and that’s why he’d suddenly left. Which is of course the reason why so many paedophiles’ friends have had to leave posts in a hurry. A nice bit of projection there Dafydd’s friends! You pillocks.

Thus Dr Roberts was called upon to do the bit at graduation. It was certainly a bizarre ceremony. Huw Daniel and his wife were sitting in the audience at the front alongside some other paedophiles’ friends glowering at me and that bestest of paedophiles’ friends Aled Griffiths aka the Buffet Slayer (see previous posts) had done a fiddle with some other paedophiles’ friends to ensure that he was awarded a Teaching Fellowship (an honour for excellence in teaching). The Slayer didn’t usually bother to turn up to give his lecturers and there had been many complaints about him by the students. Furthermore, on one occasion he broke into the office of another lecturer and removed books without his permission and that lecturer was sitting next to me as the Slayer was given his Teaching Fellowship at the ceremony by one of his mates, after this mate made a 40 minute speech extolling the achievements of the Slayer. After the ceremony, at the graduation lunch, students could be heard shrieking ‘Aled fucking Griffiths has been given a Teaching Fellowship, what is going on?’ Not that the Slayer minded, the whole Griffiths Mafia turned up – a paedophiles’ friend every one of them – armed with bottles of champagne to celebrate the occasion. Furthermore, the Slayers’ mate spent so long waxing lyrical about the attributes of the Slayer that there was no time for that year’s guest of honour, Sir Simon Jenkins, to make a speech. Sir Simon just made a little quip about people being in need of lunch and that was it.

The Slayer is known to be immune to embarrassment. Among all the complaints about him and the constant scandals which enveloped the members of his family who were running Gwynedd and Conwy Social Services, somehow he managed to ensure that one of the prizes given to the law students was the Griffiths Cup, not realising that the usual procedure is to wait until one is dead before a cup is awarded in one’s name. The brighter law students were rolling around laughing at the idea of winning the Griffiths Cup and one Professor asked if there was a saucer to go with it.

It was much to Dr Roberts’s credit that, apart from the law students who were well-acquainted with the excesses of the Slayer, the graduates and their guests didn’t realise that a paedophile gang had tried to wreck the graduation ceremony.

 

I met Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies on a few occasions, as a result of him, at a ripe old age, touring the University with regard to his fundraising efforts. He turned up at the open plan office where I did my PhD on a few occasions and I and my colleagues entertained him until our boss was available. We gave Professor Davies cups of tea and fed him biscuits and doughnuts. He later told our boss that he had trained us well and we provided the best hospitality in the University.

So it was with some sadness that I have to report that the lovely old boy who used to come and visit us was almost certainly a paedophiles’ friend of the highest order.

Wynn Humphrey Davies worked at Imperial College until 1956. He was there alongside Sir Owen Saunders, a mathematician and engineer who spent most of his career at Imperial College and seems to have been the reason why Imperial thrived and expanded enormously during the middle years of the 20th century. Saunders became an incredibly powerful man and served as VC of London University, 1967-69. Before his time ruling over Imperial, Saunders worked in numerous places and with numerous people, including in Gov’t, which left him in a position to gain knowledge of naughtiness – and criminal wrongdoing – in high places, including in The Admiralty, when scandals involving Russian spies and gay sex between people who pretended that they had no interest in such matters prevailed there. Saunders will have known that the Top Doctors in the London Medical Schools were facilitating organised abuse, as well as that organised by Dafydd et al and Saunders remained highly influential years after he retired. See post ‘The White Heat Of This Revolution’ for further information on Sir Owen Saunders.

Wynn retained links with Imperial after he left. He will have still been in touch with them all down there when the physicist Lord Brian Flowers, who had also been a big wig at Imperial – and grew up in Swansea – was concealing the most appalling practices at the University of London, including at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School/Hammersmith Hospital and St George’s Hospital Medical School, practices including of course organised abuse of children and vulnerable people but also large scale research fraud (see previous posts). As part of his remit, Brian Flowers provided an umbrella for Dafydd and the gang in north Wales. Flowers became an even bigger wig than Sir Owen Saunders, Flowers made it into the Lords (see previous posts).

The deal between Hammersmith Hospital and Bangor University was symbolically sealed with the marriage of Richard Bentall, the son of cardiac surgeon Sir Hugh Bentall who ruled the roost at Hammersmith (see post ‘Interesting Facts’) and the daughter of Eifion Jones, the Dean of Science at UCNW/Bangor. Eifion’s daughter – she is called Rhian or Rhiannon, I can’t remember which – became an Angel, but her first degree was in plant biology. She studied in the Plant Biology Dept at Bangor which employed Dr Chris Wood, the wife of the corrupt GP Dr D.G.E. Wood and Ralph Oxley, who’s wife Isobel Hargreaves worked as a social worker for Gwynedd Social Services. The rest of the staff in the Dept of Plant Biology were pretty much aware of what was going on too. One lecturer, John Wilson, was known to be picking up local school girls for sex himself and another lecturer, the vile John Farrar, was having an affair with one of the students. It was with her full consent and they subsequently married, but things did look a little grubby when she was given a job as a research assistant with John Farrar as soon as she graduated. The helpful link continued into Stel Farrar’s later life. Years later, she was given a job teaching Welsh for adults in the Dept which was headed by Meri Huws, who had previously worked as a social worker for Gwynedd Social Services, along with Isobel et al… What was Richard Bentall when he married Eifion Jones’s daughter? Er, student in the Dept of Psychology, which at that time was dominated by Dafydd.

Richard Bentall was a student in Psychology alongside Dafydd’s daughter Dwynwen, who’s degree results were too poor for her to have been offered a place to do a PhD under normal circumstances, so Dafydd had a word in a few ears…

It was in 1983 that the crazy Trishles aka Patricia Margaret Edwards, a trainee technician at Bangor University, moved into our student house and caused havoc, relieving us of money, stealing from us and making a fallacious rape allegation against a young man in Bangor (see posts ‘He Got On His Bike And Looked For Work’ and ‘A Local Boy Made Good’). Dr D.G.E. Wood and the staff of the University were fully aware of Trishles’s excesses but refused to help us. I have recently been told that Trishles was probably one of the undercover officers who was sent to bother us when we had been placed under surveillance because of the fears that Brown and I would publish something about Wood and Gwynne the lobotomist.

The shenanigans of Trishles would have demonstrated quite clearly to the security services that not only was there a trafficking ring operating in UCNW, but profoundly vulnerable ‘trainees’ on the Manpower Services Commission employment scheme were being given no training and no pastoral care either. Furthermore, the Trishles saga also showed that undergrads were being blamed for the serious dereliction of duty of care on the part of senior staff, but all of this was ignored by MI5 or Special Branch or whoever it was who sent Trishles our way.

 

Wynn Humphrey Davies became a member of UCNW Council in the mid-1970s and remained on it for 29 years. So Wynn was on the Council when Mary Wynch, a secretary in the Agriculture Dept, was unlawfully arrested and imprisoned by Dafydd and not one member of staff said one word in her defence; Wynn was there throughout Peak Paedophile years; he was there when Dafydd worked the fiddle to get Dwynwen the PhD place that she should never have had and when Dafydd tried to embezzle money from the University; he was there for the nuptials of Richard Bentall and the Daughter of the Dean; Wynn was there when the paedophile gang caused havoc in the School of Social Sciences (see posts ‘Badlands’ and ‘A Discovery Of Witches’); and he was there when Lord Kenyon, who’s son Thomas was sexually abusing boys in care, was President of UCNW (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’). Wynn was there throughout all of it and oversaw the very questionable practices detailed in posts such as ‘He’s Not The Messiah, He’s A Very Naughty Boy’, ‘Not Seen Since The 80s – Carwyn’, ‘Sleeping With The Fishes’ and ‘Pets Win Prizes’.

Most saliently, Wynn was sitting on the Council in 1984, when Thatcher’s henchman Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer tried to close UCNW down. The reason that didn’t happen was that it was made clear to Swinnerton-Dyer that the College was packed to the rafters with people facilitating a key branch of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, the branch of which Sir Peter Morrison, Thatcher’s friend and adviser, was a member (see previous posts). Sir Peter’s sister Dame Mary Morrison was Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to Lilibet. Lilibet’s son Carlo was Chancellor of UCNW.

One can only wonder why Wynn was only rewarded with an MBE. Likewise, the well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend Professor Eric Sunderland, the Principal of UCNW, 1984-95, didn’t get the K that he always wanted. I can only presume that the big wigs in High Society in London don’t have a great deal of respect for the Little People in north Wales who do the dirty work. It was Brian Flowers and his mates who bagged the peerages.

The Right Honourable
The Lord Winston FMedSci FRSA FRCP FRSB FREng
Lord Winston 2011 (Portrait).jpg
Personal details
Born Robert Maurice Lipson Winston
15 July 1940 (age 78)
Political party Labour

Lord Winston trained at the London Hospital Medical College and for many years worked at Hammersmith Hospital, which became part of Imperial College, when Lord Flowers brought all the paedophiles’ friends together. Winston is now Emeritus Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial.

Lord Bob developed a towering reputation as an IVF specialist. Which was ironic because when Patrick Steptoe and Bob Edwards were carrying out the research which led to the birth of Louise Brown, the world’s first ‘test tube baby’, Lord Bob opposed them all the way and was one of the Top Doctors who tried to stop their work. Patrick Steptoe never forgave Lord Bob. Steptoe died before Bob Edwards and he were really accepted into respectable society, long before anyone even discussed giving out a Nobel prize for the work. Bob Edwards is an alumni of UCNW/Bangor University. UCNW wouldn’t admit to having had Bob Edwards as a student for years, but more recently, Bob Edwards’s name replaced Roger Whittaker’s name on the Bangor literature as a famous old student.

For some reason, Lord Bob decided to embrace IVF and indeed make it his own specialism, after having tried for so long to put Steptoe and Edwards out of action. Lord Bob embraced IVF just when the paedophiles’ friends really needed a hand in the 1980s, what with Mary Wynch, Alison Taylor and me all making a racket.

Lord Bob is a member of the Garrick – as was Ronnie Waterhouse and Waterhouse’s friends Sir Robin Day and the High Court judge from Denbighshire and President of Bangor University, Sir William Mars-Jones. Lord Bob is also a member of the Athenaeum, as was Jimmy Savile. See previous posts for further information about Robin Day, Mars-Jones and of course Lord Bob.

 

There were and are staff at Bangor who are excellent and do make the student experience valuable, but there are swathes of the institution that are very dysfunctional and have been for decades. Wynn Humphrey Davies must have either failed to rectify that or have been part of the problem himself. I and my friends always joked about the old gits who were known to exercise a vice-like grip on Bangor University – ‘the Welsh gerontocracy’ as Brown called them – and Wynn was one of them. If he’d presented a challenge to them they’d have got rid of him.

As for Wynn Chairing the University’s Finance Committee for 23 years, UCNW has been in a parlous financial state for many, many years. The Bangor solicitor Elwyn Jones was Bangor University’s Treasurer for many years. Elwyn Jones was a crook and acted for a woman who was linked to the paedophile gang who fleeced a man after he had been targeted by Dafydd et al, left him destitute and then colluded with the paedophile gang to have him branded a risk to children himself and prevent him having access to his own child. The boyfriend of this woman’s daughter was killed when he was hit by a lorry near Bethesda shortly before the Waterhouse Inquiry was opened. Elwyn Jones was assisted by Dafydd Orwig, a Gwynedd County Councillor and lecturer at Bangor Normal College; the GPs at Bethesda Surgery; the staff of the Hergest Unit; the Arfon Community Mental Health Team; Gwynedd Social Services and Jo Bott, a police officer who doubled up as a ‘child protection officer’.

When the victim of all this tried to raise his concerns about what had gone on, he was told by all of these people to ‘move on’. His child was living with a gang of paedophiles about a mile down the road and was regularly wheeled past him in the pushchair while Elwyn Jones’s client sneered at him. When he re-married, his new wife was told by Jo Bott to ‘leave [his ex-partner] alone’. She hadn’t had any contact with her husband’s ex-partner since the day that their relationship ended. Although she did pay a great many of her husband’s former partner’s bills, which had been run up by his ex-partner in his name…Nearly £1000 to be precise. Brown was a witness to all this as well, he was dispensing advice. Then Paul Bates tried to track him down again…

I used to see the tosser Elwyn Jones in Court, patronising his clients, failing to defend them effectively and telling the other solicitors that he couldn’t wait to get onto the golf course as soon as Court had finished. Slob Ingham of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team was a regular at Bangor Golf Course, as was Elfed Roberts, who later became the Chair of the North West Wales NHS Trust and repeatedly had me arrested for ludicrous ‘offences’. When Elwyn Jones was stitching up the Hergest Unit patient and giving his child to a gang of paedophiles, Elfed was still a Superintendent in the North Wales Police, not having yet been thrown out for corruption by Chief Constable Richard Brunstrom. Elfed used to be the Sgt at Llangefni Police Station. Dafydd lived just outside of Llangefni and was mates with them all in there. Elfed also sat on the Council of Bangor University – he was Chair of the Fair Practice Committee – and after the embarrassment that was the NW Wales NHS Trust was abolished by Edwina Hart, instead of having Elfed arrested on the basis of the mountains of evidence that I and others sent her, Edwina gave Elfed a place on the Board of the Welsh Ambulance Trust.

For the full story re the paedophile gang who robbed someone blind and stole his son, being ably assisted in this by the professional classes of Bangor, see post ‘It’s All About Protecting Children’.

Elwyn Jones’s father was Sir Elwyn Jones, a solicitor who doubled up as the Labour MP for Conway. David Jones, the Tory MP for Clwyd West whom Cameron appointed as Secretary of State for Wales just as Operation Pallial was launched and in the run up to the Macur Review, is a solicitor who used to work in Elwyn Jones’s practice. See post ‘The Right Honourable David Jones MP’.

Wynn Humphrey Davies was instrumental in the foundation of the fundraising arm of Bangor which was established in 1984. I can remember that, it was the year that I graduated. I and all the other new graduates were asked to donate and many of us did. Not very much, because many of us were planning to undertake postgraduate work so we were broke, but a lot of us gave what we could. And the gerontocracy ended up colluding with a paedophile gang against us. Who killed one of us and ruined the careers of a few more of us. Just before I fled north Wales, I received a phone call from the Bangor University alumni office asking me if I’d like to donate to their fund.

What can be said of people like this?

 

 

Wynn left Imperial and took up a Chair at Queen Mary, University of London in 1956. QMUL dates back to the foundation of London Hospital Medical College – Lord Bob Winston’s alma mater -in 1785. Queen Mary College was admitted to the University of London in 1915 and in 1989 merged with Westfield College to form Queen Mary and Westfield College. In 1995 Queen Mary and Westfield College merged with St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College and the London Hospital Medical College to form the School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Bart’s was ruled by Dafydd’s mate, south Wales-born Professor Linford Rees, he of the celebrity family which included his daughter, actress Angharad Rees and her husband Christopher Cazenove (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). Dafydd’s gang procured young people for celebrity sex work – as did Jimmy Savile. In a previous generation, Bart’s was ruled by the father of Lady Juliet Bingley, who was a surgeon there. Juliet worked as a social worker at Bart’s and married Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, who served in the Royal Navy with Lord Louis Mountbatten (see post ‘The Defence of The Realm’). Lady Juliet and her son William Bingley spend many happy years in senior positions at MIND colluding with Dafydd et al and William carried on the good work when he became Chief Exec of the Mental Health Act Commission and no doubt also in his later role as the Chair of a scandal-ridden NHS Trust in the north of England and as the Professor of Law and Ethics at Cumbria University.

William Bingley died in a hill walking accident in 2011, just as it was obvious that Operation Pallial and the Macur Review would be taking place. In his obituary, ‘The Guardian’ described William as someone ‘who fought for the rights of mentally ill people’. After Dafydd illegally imprisoned Mary Wynch, things got a bit embarrassing and thus the Mental Health Act was updated, with Added Protection From Mad Old Doctors. The new Mental Health Act 1983 was written by Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass and the Code of Practice which accompanied it was written by William Bingley. After Dafydd had illegally imprisoned me in the winter of 1986/1987 – along with a ward full of other people who had also been illegally imprisoned – and I complained, my complaints were ignored. I refused to give up and eventually in 1989, my complaint was investigated – by Bluglass. Who failed to investigate any of my concerns relating to Tony Francis and Gwynedd Social Services and concluded that Dafydd was a caring man who had been harassed to distraction by me, although Bluglass admitted that Dafydd’s ‘clinical standards’ needed to be raised. See post ‘Enter Robert Bluglass CBE’.  William Bingley had told me in person that if I went back to north Wales I would be arrested.

Some three years later, Robert Bluglass was a member of the Fallon Inquiry into serious abuse at Lawrence Ward in Ashworth Hospital, which was run by Dafydd and Tony Francis’s mate Dr Chris Hunter. Hunter was the man who, just before the Fallon Inquiry, had held a case conference about me while I was at work in a London medical school, took evidence from a number of people who had never met me and declared me to be extremely dangerous and in need of banging up in a secure hospital. Hunter offered to provide a Court report about me. I was not facing any criminal charges at the time, but it wasn’t long before I was… See post ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter. I did not know that this case conference had ever taken place until my lawyers obtained my medical records many, many years later. I had never heard of Chris Hunter.

Bluglass’s role in the Fallon Inquiry was to investigate the murder of an Ashworth patient by the staff. To aid him in his investigation, Bluglass commissioned a senior nurse who worked with Dafydd and one of his own senior nurses from the Birmingham clinic of which he was Clinical Director, the Reaside Clinic. The conclusion of the Fallon Report was that the patients at Ashworth were absolute bastards who needed higher levels of security. See post ‘Security, Security’.

 

William Bingley was married to an Angel and they loved entertaining and having lots of important people to dinner. I hope that the guests were given tea and cake in the afternoon as well.

 

The main campus of QMUL is in Tower Hamlets. It has other campuses in Holborn, Smithfield and Whitechapel. Dafydd’s gang had a reciprocal agreement with Tower Hamlets – Dafydd and the gang were sent kids in care, who were then returned to the East End as sex workers. See post ‘Tower Hamlets, Paul Boateng and Tessa Jowell’. When the sex workers started dying after developing AIDS in the 1980s, Ken Clarke and other public spirited politicians arranged for some crumbs from the table to look after them in secrecy and ensure that no-one ever found out how those young men contracted HIV (see post ‘Apocalypse Now’). More public spirited people then built Canary Wharf on the remains of that part of humanity and now no-one ever speaks of what went on in the Tower Hamlets area before Docklands sprang up (see post ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’).

  • Strange but true for March

 

Wynn Humprhey Davies’s obituary in ‘The Times’ told us that he was born in Tufnell Park, London, to a Welsh speaking family. Wynn’s father was Richard Humphrey Davies, who came from Corris, a quarrying village in what is now Gwynedd. Richard Humphrey Davies was a prominent Liberal who was Private Secretary to William Gladstone, the Liberal PM. Gladstone was born on Merseyside, but had strong links to north Wales and died at Hawarden Castle, Flintshire. Gladstone bequeathed £40,000 (equivalent to approximately £4.24 million today) and much of his 32,000 volume library to found St Deiniol’s Library in Hawarden. Richard Humphrey Davies also worked with H.H. Asquith, who was Liberal PM, 1908-16 and also with David Lloyd George in the Treasury and the Liberal Central Association. Lloyd George was Liberal PM, 1916-22. Not only was Lloyd George still alive when Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies was working at Imperial College, but Lloyd George’s descendants and their friends are very well represented among those who have provided an umbrella for Dafydd and the gang (see previous posts.

Lloyd George’s family were friends with Jeremy Thorpe and his family (see post ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’) and with Trumpers, who as junior Health Minister appointed Jimmy Savile to the Broadmoor management task force. See posts ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services in the 1980s’, ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’ and ’95 Glorious Years’.

Ronnie Waterhouse came from a high profile Liberal family in Flintshire. Ronnie’s family were friends with the Lloyd Georges – that was why Ronnie found Jeremy Thorpe socially acceptable. Ronnie’s father was a Liberal MP and Ronnie and many members of his immediate family were active in the Liberal Party, some of them – including Ronnie at one point – having ambitions to enter Parliament.

In 1984, the year that Wynn founded the UCNW charitable fund, Wynn was appointed a Fellow of Queen Mary, University of London. Queen Mary has made a great number of people Fellows, but the names of a few of them really do jump out at me in terms of those who have provided a particularly good service re concealing the crimes of Dafydd and his associates. The list of Fellows contains many names which have previously featured on this blog including:

Sir Adolf aka William Asscher, Dean of St George’s Hospital Medical School, 1988-96, when so much criminal activity was taking place there; Lord Peter Brooke, who served as Chairman of the Tory Party and as Secretary of State for N Ireland during Peak Peadophilia; Lord Thomas Bingham, a mate of Ronnie Waterhouse’s who became Master of the Rolls, Lord Chief Justice and Senior Law Lord.

Asscher was made a Fellow of QMUL in 1998, by which time the research fraud perpetrated at St George’s by Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain and Malcolm Pearce had caused a major scandal. By 1998 the Waterhouse Inquiry had taken evidence in public and denounced the former kids in care as liars who were only after money. In 1998, Dr Tony Francis and the gang had recently failed to have me incarcerated in a secure hospital after perjuring themselves.

QMUL made Peter Brooke a Fellow in 1996, the year that William Hague announced that the Waterhouse Inquiry would be held, although Ronnie knew that he would be holding that Inquiry at least a year before Hague announced it. In 1996, Dafydd, Tony Francis and the gang were carefully planning and co-ordinating yet another attempt to have me banged up in a secure hospital, which subsequently fell apart.

Thomas Bingham was appointed a Fellow in 1992, the year that he was appointed as Master of the Rolls. In 1992 the North Wales Police were in the middle of their investigation into the possible existence of a paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. David Owen, then the Chief Constable of North Wales, refused to co-operate with the investigation. Although hundreds of complaints about kids in care being assaulted were made and a file was sent to the CPS, the DPP did not bring any charges. In 1993 the North Wales Police closed the investigation and stated that they had found no evidence of a paedophile ring.

When these folk became Fellows of QMUL, former kids in care from north Wales were regularly turning up dead. Thomas Bingham became a Fellow in the year in which five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal were killed by a firebomb (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’).

Sir Roger Bannister, the neurologist who was the first man to run the four minute mile, became a Fellow in 2010, when the demands for a re-investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal could not be ignored any longer. Roger Bannister will have known the neurologist Lord John Walton; Walton was just seven years younger than Bannister. Walton ran Newcastle-upon-Tyne, where the trafficking gang which supplied Dafydd with both staff and children operated and Walton provided an armour plated shield for Dafydd et al for decades, particularly when Walton was President of the GMC, BMA and the Royal Society of Medicine.

Roger Bannister was Warden of Pembroke College, Oxford 1985-93. At the beginning of Bannister’s term as Warden, there were allegations that Oxford still operated a reserved place scheme for certain schools. Oxford denied this. In the year of the robust denials, Brown’s cousin was offered a reserved place at Pembroke College (see post ‘Conference At Cold Comfort Farm’). This may be a coincidence, but Katy’s reserved place was provided by her school, Tiffin Girls’, in Kingston-upon-Thames. Sir Hugh Bentall pretty much ran Kingston-upon-Thames and Katy’s mother worked in Bentall’s, the upmarket department store owned by Sir Hugh. Katy was offered the reserved place after Brown and me refused to keep quiet about Gwynne the lobotomist and began receiving threats from the Top Docs. Katy’s place was for a theology degree – she had applied to study law.

Lord John Walton was Warden of Green College, Oxford at pretty much the same time as Roger Bannister was Warden of Pembroke College, Oxford.

Sir Martin Harris, who became VC of Manchester University and Chancellor of Salford University, was a Governor of Queen Mary, University of London, 1979-89 and Chair of Council, 1989-95. Sir Martin became a Fellow in 1997, another gift given during the Waterhouse Inquiry and amidst those plans to fit me up. Sir Martin came from a village near Wrexham and his early career was spent at that bastion of paedophiles’ friends, Leicester University.

Lord Robert Winston, Professor of Fertility Studies, Imperial College, 1987-05. Winston became a Fellow of QMUL in 1996 – the year that Hague announced the Waterhouse Inquiry. Winston personally knew some of those whom I worked for when I was at Hammersmith and St George’s, including Chamberlain and Pearce. Winston bagged his peerage in 1995, the year in which Ronnie Waterhouse altered his retirement plans and conducted a tour wining and dining with the grandest paedophiles’ friends in Wales before he Chaired the Inquiry which he had no idea was going to be announced by Hague in 1996.

Lord Randolph Quirke, VC of University of London, 1981-85, (see previous posts) became a Fellow of QMUL in 1986. Which was the year that I was unlawfully detained by Dafydd’s gang – twice – and began my MSc at Hammersmith. Quirke not only kept the lid on the wrongdoing at London University, but he was also a friend and colleague of Professor David Crystal, who is an Honorary Professor at Bangor University, grew up in Holyhead, lives in Holyhead and is involved with ‘community life’ in the Bangor/Holyhead area (see previous posts). Randolph will have known Lord Brian Flowers and Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies.

Baroness Lynda Chalker has been the most wonderful paedophiles’ friend on a generic basis for many years (see post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’) and she became a Fellow of Queen Mary in 1998.

Jack Profumo, who of course starred in the Profumo Affair with the call girls, Russian spies, Stephen Ward – the osteopath who later died in worrying circumstances – and it was rumoured members of the Royal Family who’s names were kept out of it all, became a Fellow in 2000. The year that the Waterhouse Report was published. Jack Profumo was a good mate of Trumpers, who also attended the knees-ups at Cliveden and admitted being on the scene when swearing cockney birds had to be kept out of the way of Lilibet. See post ‘In Memoriam – Bronwen, Lady Astor’.

Baroness Barbara Brooke, the mother of Lord Peter Brooke and a Tory politician herself, was a loyal paedophiles’ friend who held senior positions in the NHS in London for many years and knew what was right for the proles. Baroness Brooke became a Fellow of QMUL many years ago, before the Waterhouse-related rush.

Another Fellow of Queen Mary is Baroness Murphy of Aldgate, Prof of Old Age Psychiatry at Queen Mary University of London, 1995-06; Chairman of the Council at St George’s Hospital Medical School, 2009-12. Elaine Murphy was a Health Service General Manager, 1984-90 which included the post of District General Manager for Lewisham and North Southwark Health Authority. That was on the territory of the trafficking gang facilitated by Dafydd’s mates at the Maudsley. Murphy was the first Professor of Psychiatry of Old Age in the UK, at Guy’s. Where Dafydd’s mate the sex therapist Professor Jim Watson found himself. Along with Ed Miliband’s Uncle Harry. Murphy took on non-executive roles after retirement and was Chair of North East London Strategic Health Authority until 30 June 2006. She was a Visiting Professor at Queen Mary University of London, Vice-President of the Alzheimer’s Society and and was a non-executive member of Monitor (Independent Monitor of NHS Hospitals).

Elaine was appointed a Fellow of Queen Mary in 2008. Well Elaine, not only have you never explained why you kept quiet about that trafficking gang in south London with links to Dafydd, but you’ve never explained why EMI care is still so bad in the UK, including in your next of the woods, more than 20 years after you bagged your Chair in the speciality. Neither has Monitor ever done its job properly. Elaine netted a peerage in 2004, the year that Huw Daniel expected to imprison me…

In 1996, the year that the Waterhouse Inquiry was announced, Queen Mary made Roger Henderson QC, a Fellow. Henderson became a Recorder of the Crown Court in 1983 and a Deputy High Court judge in 1987. He was a Governor, London Hospital Medical College, 1989-96; a Member of Council of Queen Mary, 1993-2005 and Chairman of the Council, 1993-96. So Roger probably had a say in making so many paedophiles’ friends Fellows. Then he became a Fellow himself. Furthermore, not only was Roger one of those Governing the London Hospital Medical College when that institution was colluding with the trafficking gang on it’s doorstep, but Henderson was also a Governor at the time of the civil war at the London Hospital which took place over Wendy Savage (see post ‘The BMA And It’s Ethics’). Wendy Savage was a friend of Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain and knew a great deal about young, dispossessed women becoming pregnant again and again when they didn’t want to be.

Roger Henderson was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Chambers Bar Awards 2012, which were held at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane.

In 2012 Operation Pallial was re-investigating the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and the Macur Review was underway, which covered the whole scandal up all over again. Tony Francis killed himself in 2012. After Tony Francis killed himself, his wife Sadie told third parties that it was my fault.

The last time that I saw Tony Francis had been some five years earlier when Sadie and Tony were sitting in the cafe of a garden centre in Bangor, where I had gone for a cup of coffee with Ella Fisk. Ella asked me about my publication plans re the north Wales mental health services and I told her that Brown and I were in the process of preparing a manuscript for a volume. Tony stared straight ahead and ignored me. Sadie came up and told me that she was so glad to have heard that my career was going so well and she looked forward to reading our book, even if she was in it.

Tony Francis used to tell his patients that he knew the Windbag when they were both at university in Cardiff. Tony Francis was also a big fan of Dafydd Wigley.

Yma O Hyd!

Oh, my poor old calon breaks when I sing of the heroes of Wales such as Macsen as well as our legends…But my spirit soars when I sing that tribute song to Dr Dafydd Alun Jones that I wrote. Then I entertain everyone with the humorous number about MI5 bugging the Ciosg Talysarn…

Dafydd Iwan

 

Dafydd Iwan also wrote a song about Carlo, taking the piss out of Carlo’s inherited privilege and his dependence upon the position of his father. Read about the career of Dafydd’s Iwan’s son Llion in post ‘A Demand From Gwynedd County Council’. ‘Carlo’ berates Carlo for playing polo ‘with daddy’. When Dafydd Iwan recorded Ciosg Talysarn, Llion was still quite young and the video features Llion as a little boy running around wearing a policeman’s helmet, the theme of the video being the fuckwittery of the police and the security services. Well they weren’t trying very hard to catch you were they Dafydd Iwan, they were far too busy arresting us.

 

I hope that Sadie is enjoying this blog, I’ve been able to say far more on here than any publisher would ever have allowed me to.

 

In 1991, Queen Mary made Professor Lord Peston a Fellow. That was the year in which I and three other witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd et al had our careers ruined and in which Tony and Sadie Francis made two attempts at having me imprisoned after perjuring themselves. Their second attempt took place at the Courts of Royal Justice in The Strand. 1991 was the year in which the North Wales Police investigation into a possible paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire opened. Lord Peston was Professor of Economics and the founder of the Department of Economics at Queen Mary University of London (1965-88). He was Robert Peston’s dad.

Other lucky Fellows of Queen Mary, University of London, include: Grocer Heath; Fattersley; Ronnie Waterhouse’s mate Lord Patrick Jenkin; and Dr Gwyn Owain Jones, Director, National Museum of Wales, 1968-77, Professor of Physics, University of London and Head, Department of Physics, Queen Mary University of London, 1953-68. Paedophiles’ friends the lot of them.

 

I’m beginning to understand why he who conducts so many toadying interviews with clapped out politicians of yesteryear who never became PM despite doing as many favours for Dafydd as humanly possible, Professor Peter Hennessey, was given a home at Queen Mary, University of London.

Professor Duncan Tanner, the late Professor of History at Bangor University, passed through the hands of Queen Mary. Duncan knew about Dafydd and the gang and Duncan knew the identities of all the politicians who sheltered Dafydd. Duncan died, suddenly and during a routine minor procedure, in the ‘care’ of Ysbyty Gwynedd in 2010. Just when the paedophiles’ friends were getting really, really desperate and were causing ructions at Bangor University. Duncan was the Director of Research when he died and was working with my colleagues and I. He personally knew Frances Jones, who was one of those who was involved in preparing the ‘evidence’ that was used in an attempt by the paedophiles’ friends to frame and imprison me back in the early 1990s, but whether Duncan knew that I have no idea.

At Duncan’s memorial service, Frances Jones sat behind me with her mates and they were bemoaning the state of Bangor University and maintaining that it was all the result of the ‘research strategy of the Vice Chancellor’. No Frances, the chaos was the result of the sabotage strategy of the paedophiles’ friends.

 

 

Now to someone else Who Knew at the Control Centre that was St George’s. Previous posts have discussed the dreadful Dr Cathy Wilson, society airhead and friend of Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain, who along with her colleagues was concealing a mountain of crap. Cathy was good mates with an endocrinologist at St George’s, Saffron Whitehead and Cathy and Saffron would often meet up during the long hard working day for a coffee or a lunch at a restaurant. According to Saffron’s Linked In profile, she now has a Chair at St George’s. She was just Dr Saffron when I knew her, so she’s obviously behaved herself. Saffron’s Linked In provides the following information:

‘Professor at St George’s Hospital Medical School; BSc Physiology, UCL, 1967-70; PhD, McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada.’

In about 1994, Tony Francis mismanaged the care of one ‘schizophrenic’ young woman at the Hergest so badly that it was fairly clear that he made her condition much worse. One really bizarre thing that he told her was that she suffered from a very extreme form of PMS and he sent her down to UCL to see an ‘expert’ in this, an elderly lady whom I seem to remember was a Professor Ann someone, who sounded quite mad. The elderly lady told Francis’s patient that she had a ‘little bit of schizophrenia’, but very, very severe PMS. The old lady didn’t recommend hormonal treatment but instead maintained that this young woman’s PMS could be managed by a special diet which involved the young woman eating a tin of Ambrosia creamed rice every two hours, as well as her usual grub. The young woman took a supply of Ambrosia everywhere that she went to keep her blood levels of Ambrosia up. She put on about four stones in weight and the Hergest Unit then told her that she needed cookery lessons re preparing healthy meals. So she’d go in the kitchen with an occupational therapy assistant and much time and trouble would be spent calculating calories and nutritional value and weighing out the precise amounts of healthy ingredients and a nice healthy meal would be prepared and consumed. But because the instructions of the mad old bat at UCL also had to be followed, a tin of Ambrosia had to be consumed as well.

This young woman had been sent back home to north Wales by her GP and into the hands of Francis after she had been working with Marco Pierre White in London and claimed to have had some very distressing experiences while in his employment. She was sectioned by the same social worker who unlawfully detained me in 1986, Jackie Brandt and her parents maintained that the law had been broken and that their daughter had been treated in a degrading, insensitive way. They also alleged that after they complained, the mental health services told ‘lie after lie after lie’. Thus a 1980s yuppie was transformed into a paranoid schizophrenic. Who then became homeless after the same social worker, some years later, ordered the police to break the door down to gain entry to her house when she refused to answer the door to the social worker, whom she hated. Her landlord evicted her because of this.

It became clear to the staff just how mad this young woman was when she alleged that Tony Francis arrived at her room late one night when she had been sectioned and exposed himself to her. She gave me full details of this incident, which to my regret I too always put down to her distress. When my lawyers finally got hold of my records – more than 20 years after I first requested them – I read the quite mad things that Tony Francis had written about me, as well as the comments by those at St George’s who were concealing Dafydd et al’s crimes that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that they thought that Tony Francis was as well.

My lawyers had to take Keith Thompson, the Chief Exec of the North West Wales NHS Trust, to the High Court – where he was threatened with imprisonment for contempt – before those records were handed over.

Hundreds of people read those records after those comments were written by St George’s staff. Except of course my lawyers and I.

‘There is no evidence that Dr Dafydd Alun Jones ever behaved in any way  unprofessionally.’

Saffron tells us on her Linked In that:

‘For over thirty five years I have been teaching medical students, biomedical students and other health care professionals. I have run an active research team which has been supported by the MRC, Wellcome Trust, Nuffield Foundation and other funding bodies resulting in an extensive bibliography. I have written three endocrinology text books and have a large portfolio of free lance journalism. I have been editor of Physiology News and The Endocrinologist and am currently involved in public engagements activities for the British Endocrine Society. I have featured several times on Woman’s Hour (BBC Radio 4) and recently appeared in a television documentary on BBC 4, the Fantastical World of Your Hormones. Interests and hobbies include tennis, golf, photography and travel.’

Jenni Murray and Jane Garvey: Saffron spent her career in an institution which for years facilitated a paedophile ring on its doorstep and concealed the ring in north Wales with which the south London ring was linked. Saffron was a good friend of one of the people who was instrumental in facilitating/ concealing the abuse.

Linked In states that Saffron is a School Governor at Oak Lodge School and in 2013 was a Volunteer for the Shaw Trust, ‘helping the unemployed get back to work’…

 

When I was supposed to be doing a PhD at St George’s under the supervision of Cathy Wilson and Malcolm Pearce, not only would Cathy just not mentor me or help me in any way, but it became obvious that she had no experience at all in one of the key experimental techniques that I was supposed to be using ie. organ baths. After realising that I was on my own with this PhD and had a mad, unpleasant supervisor into the bargain, I tracked down someone in the University of Glasgow who had much experience in organ baths – using the umbilical artery as well, which was what I was trying to do –  and she invited me up to meet her and spend a week learning. She was really nice and very helpful, but one thing I remember her telling me was that she couldn’t bear the social snobbery which prevailed in Glasgow Medical School. She had recently got married to a man who had set up his own small business on the back of his redundancy package – he had previously been a miner. One of her Top Doc colleagues had said to her when she got engaged ‘surely you can do better for yourself than an ex-miner’. Which was the sort of thing that Cathy Wilson would have said.

Glasgow Medical School is charged with providing ‘expertise’ to some of the most disadvantaged people in Europe. After years of the Top Docs developing their research interests in health inequalities, the life expectancy for the most disadvantaged Glaswegians is still approx 20 years less than the professional classes who work in Glasgow, but who choose to live somewhere nicer. Such as on the banks of Loch Lomond, like Dr Gwen Jones-Edwards, who left the Hergest Unit in a hurry as the Waterhouse Inquiry approached and who some five years ago had inexplicably became the Clinical Director of Southern General Hospital, the leading centre for neurology/neurosurgery in Europe. Gwen is not even a neurologist, she is merely a former colleague of a branch of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. While Gwen was Clinical Director, Southern General underwent a massive expansion programme, billions was invested and virtually all other medical specialities for Western Scotland were transferred to Southern General as well. See previous posts for more gen on Gwen.

Sir Kenneth Calman, surgeon and oncologist, is a graduate of Glasgow University and spent much of his career there. Calman was Chief Medical Officer of Scotland, 1989-91 and for England and Wales, 1991-97, throughout the police investigations into child abuse in north Wales and the beginning of the Waterhouse Inquiry, when so many witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd et al were found dead and when the gang were busy fitting me and others up. Sir Kenneth was Warden and VC of Durham University, 1998-2006 and was then appointed Chancellor of Glasgow University, a post he still holds. Durham University, like Newcastle University, was choc full of staff who concealed the trafficking gang in the north east which had close connections to Dafydd’s. Professor Eric Sunderland had spent most of his career at Durham before he was appointed Principal of Bangor University in 1984. Eric was an anthropologist. Mo Mowlam studied anthropology and sociology at Durham and later worked at Newcastle University. No wonder Blair appointed Mo N Ireland Secretary, what with all those links between Kincora’ Boys Home and the trafficking gangs in mainland Britain, particularly in north Wales.

Kenneth Calman became VC of Durham University while Mo was N Ireland Secretary. A man called Tony Blair held the nearby constituency of Sedgefield. The region was well-supplied with MPs who were loyal mates of Blair, such as Hilary Armstrong, who’s dad Ernest had used his influence with Tony Crosland back in the 1960s to conceal the gang which later sent staff to join Dafydd et al in north Wales.

The MP for the City of Durham, 1987-2005, was Gerry Steinberg. Steinberg grew up and went to school in Durham. He gained a Teachers Certificate at Sheffield College of Education (now Sheffield Hallam University) and later a DipEd of Backward Children (now called SEN) at Newcastle Poly. Steinberg started teaching at Hexham Camp School in 1966, then moved to Elemore Hall in County Durham in 1969. From 1975-87 he was at Whitworth House Special School in Spennymoor where he became Head Teacher. He joined the Labour Party in 1969 and became election agent for Durham MP Dr Mark Hughes in 1973. In May 1975 Steinberg was elected to Durham City Council. He was secretary of the Labour Group on the city council from 1981 to 1987 and Co-Leader of the Council from 1983-87. Gerry Steinberg was married to another teacher, Margaret.

The children targeted by the gang in the north east were frequently SEN children.

Brown’s mum and dad came from County Durham. Brown’s mum went to Durham University and his dad went to what is now Newcastle University. Brown’s mum grew up in Spennymore. I have previously blogged about Col Brown’s death which Brown and I realised was suspicious, but although Brown’s mum was older than his dad when she died, I have now been told that her death is worth asking questions about as well. Before she died, Brown’s mum had an emergency buzzer fitted in her house which raised an NHS alert if she needed help. She kept telling Brown that the buzzer didn’t work, but Brown thought that she was lonely and perhaps was telling him that to get him down to Somerset to look at the buzzer. She was found dead in her bed shortly after. No reason, she just died.

I have now been told that Mrs Brown’s buzzer did work, but that it was not being answered… Mrs Brown died just after I finished my PhD, when Tony Francis et al were getting so vexed about the prospect of Brown and I publishing the full story regarding my experiences with the mental health services.

Sir Kenneth Calman is an SNP supporter and had served as an adviser to the Scottish Gov’t. He Chaired the Calman Commission on devolution. See previous posts for further information on Kenneth.

Sir Ken is the father of Radio 4 favourite, Funnywoman Susan Calman, who’s act is centred around jokes about her being a short plump Glaswegian lesbian who lives with her cats and has self-esteem problems. Before Susan Calman went into comedy she worked as an international lawyer. When Susan appears on the ‘News Quiz’ and such, she usually gets in a few comments to emphasise that unlike many other Radio 4 comedians, she is not posh and ex-Footlights.

Sir Ken knew about the crimes of this man, who visited Bryn Estyn, many years before they were admitted publicly:

Another daughter of a Top Doc rose to stardom at about the same time as Susan Calman, but in the field of rock music rather than comedy – Cerys Matthews. Cerys’s dad was a Top Doc in the Cardiff area and when he was older he relocated to west Wales. Both areas hosted paedophile/trafficking rings linked with Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. The gang in west Wales thrived when Ioan Bowen Rees was County Secretary of Dyfed. Ioan Bowen Rees was later appointed Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council and while he was in post, the gang which was already there expanded. It was Ioan who appointed Dafydd’s mistress Lucille Hughes as Director of Gwynedd Social Services (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’). Ioan Bowen Rees was the dad of Gruff Rhys, who found international stardom with his band Super Furry Animals, during those years in the run up to the Waterhouse Report, when Sir Ken was CMO. Cerys became famous then as well. Se post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’ for information on all those stars who made up the Cool Cymru phenomenon, which reached it’s zenith when the Waterhouse Report was published. Blair was PM and he used ‘Cool Britannia’, of which Cool Cymru was a part, to promote Britain. The Minister with responsibility for this was Derek Fatchett, who died suddenly and unexpectedly of a massive heart attack at a relatively young age, in 1999. Just before the Waterhouse Report was published. Derek Fatchett had been the MP for Leeds Central before Hilary Benn and knew a great deal about Jimmy Savile, the paedophile ring in the region with links to Dafydd and the gang, police corruption etc. Fatchett began his Journey as a ‘bearded Marxist’ but made friends with the Windbag who knew Tony Francis from university and thus Fatchett came over all modernising (see post ‘Badlands’).

 

Before Amy Winehouse died, because her lifestyle was so excessive, her mates were concerned that she would peg out and they kept telling her not to join the 27 Club, which I understand is a reference to the rockers who died at the age of 27. Amy did of course join the 27 Club. Presumably middle aged politicians have the ‘New Labour Fatal Heart Attack Club’, which has as members the following:

John Smith
Winehouse looking to the side

 

Derek Fatchett
Winehouse looking to the side

 

Robin Cook
Winehouse looking to the side

 

Amy Winehouse recorded songs including ‘In my Bed’, ‘You Sent Me Flying’, Help Yourself’ and ‘You Know I’m No Good’. A DVD was entitled ‘I Told You I Was Trouble’ and she sang cover versions of ‘It’s My Party’, ‘The Wanted’ and ‘Ghost Town’.

 

Cerys Matthews began training as a psychiatric nurse, but the little songster left and took up busking instead. Like Jo Brand, who gives the Posh Boys A Bollocking on ‘Have I Got News For You’, who worked as a psych nurse (and is married to one), Cerys doesn’t talk that much about her time as an Angel. Jo worked as an Angel in Cefn Coed, a rather troubled psych hospital at Swansea, which has just been the centre of some rather bad publicity after an Angel killed herself because, it is alleged, of ferocious workplace bullying at the hands of her colleagues.

Swansea University and the NHS in that area have strong links with Bangor University and the north Wales NHS and there is traffic in staff between the two institutions. Edwina Hart, the former Welsh Gov’t Heath Minister, was perceived to be batting for Swansea by Top Docs in north Wales who were so angry about this that they were telling their patients to write to the Welsh Gov’t and complain. Which I thought was a little odd, because I gave Edwina Hart enough evidence to have those bastards arrested but she refused to act on it. But then if it wasn’t for Carlo, Dafydd Iwan and his associates would have been removed from their well-remunerated positions and some of them would have gone to prison.

Despite the young woman at Glasgow University being so helpful regarding the organ baths, after one visit to Glasgow, Cathy Wilson produced one of her friends to mentor me. Who didn’t scream abuse at the research staff and throw things around the lab like Cathy did, but she was married to Ian Smedley, the Head Technician of the Pharmacology Dept at St George’s and she was well-networked into the London paedophiles’ friends. The equipment that I was using to conduct my experiments was sited in the Pharmacology Dept. The temperature regulation system broke down and despite me reporting it several times, it was never repaired. So I stopped the experiments and Cathy hurled abuse at me for being lazy and told me to start work again. Still the temperature regulation mechanism wasn’t fixed, although old Smedley would drop by and put his hand on my knee regularly – he did this to the female medical students as well, it was why they didn’t like him. So I was forced to work with broken equipment. After two days of this, Patrick Vallance, one of the physicians and pharmacologists who was also involved in my project, found out that I was working with broken equipment, gave me a bollocking and never spoke to me again. A medical student with whom I was friends heard Patrick Vallance telling other pharmacologists not to work with me.

After making his name as a stern critic of the pharmaceutical industry and it’s scams, some years ago Professor Patrick Vallance sent shock waves through medicine when he left academia to take up a senior position with Big Pharma. Patrick was President, R&D, of GSK, 2012-18. Since March 2018, Patrick has been the Chief Scientific Adviser to the UK Gov’t.

As someone who was a student at St George’s and who then spent years working there, Patrick knew about the crime which was being concealed at that institution and he will have known about the research fraud there.

When I knew him, Patrick was big mates with the pharmacologist Salvador Moncada, now Sir Salvador. Patrick told me that Salvador was ‘brilliant’ and ‘Spanish’, which was what the whole of London and medicine was told about Moncada. Salvador Moncada is actually a former guerilla leader who was kicked out of El Salvador when he was much younger for terrorist activities – some of Savador’s targets were innocent civilians caught up in the civil war – who, for reasons which I have not yet uncovered, was invited to London by a Top Doctor mate of his and was sponsored by the Royal College of Surgeons to begin a new life as a world-leading pharmacologist. Salvador was writing papers within weeks, although he couldn’t speak English. Brown has observed that somebody else has obviously been writing Moncada’s papers for years, but who it is we do not know. Moncada was expected to win a Nobel prize a few years ago but missed out. His friends told the media that Salvador didn’t make a fuss because he’s a true gent. If he had have made a fuss, it is highly likely that someone in El Salvador might have noticed who the lucky prize winner was, although I presume that Moncada was given a new ID when he arrived in Britain all those years ago…

For the lowdown on Moncada and Patrick Vallance, see post ‘The Trabant That Wants To Be A Ferrari…’

Before I went up to Glasgow to stay with the physiologist/pharmacologist who had Married Beneath Her, I had met a few more Scottish medical researchers. In 1987, I applied for a job with a team of neurologists at Edinburgh University. I was invited for an interview and although the interview took place in the vet school at Edinburgh University, it was actually some Top Doctors who were leading the research. The work was taking place in the vet school because the experimental work was being conducted on cats. They even had a special operating theatre for the cats who were used for the work. The research wasn’t actually directly linked to the work that Professor Colin Blakemore had been involved with which had resulted in him receiving death threats and in attempts to blow him up (see previous posts), but Blakemore will have definitely known the cats people at Edinburgh. While I was with them, I concluded that the work was interesting scientifically, but as many were saying about Blakemore’s work at the time, it couldn’t be justified and neither could the sacrifice of the cats. However I got on well with the interviewing panel and they indicated that I was going to be offered the job – so I went home worrying about how I was going to say no without causing offence.

I needn’t have worried. I didn’t hear from them within days as promised, so after a few weeks, I contacted them. They were very apologetic and told me that I hadn’t got the job and that they’d written to me the day after my interview.

Many weeks later, I received the rejection letter, which was dated the day after the interview, looked as though it had done a few rounds in a boxing match and furthermore had been obviously opened and resealed.

 

  • Weird But True!

 

Many years later, when my lawyers extracted the first batch of my medical records, there were notes written by Alun Davies and Laurie Wood, the then manager of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, describing the unlawful methods that they were using to track my home addresses throughout the late 1980s and 90s. These methods included asking one of their friends at St George’s to access confidential data to find out my home address as well as asking people to intercept my mail.

My mail was intercepted years later when I worked at Bangor University. My lawyer was writing to me at the University, after the mail left by the postie in the box in my garden disappeared on two occasions. When I picked up my post from my University pigeon hole, every letter from my lawyer had already been opened. So I asked my lawyer to write to me at a friend’s address. Every letter was opened and resealed by the time that it arrived at my friend’s address. One day I caught the postie as he was arriving – a letter from my lawyer had already been opened and resealed by the time that he handed it to me.

 

Earlier posts have discussed the wide variety of people who befriended me, Brown and other witnesses to Dafydd and the gang’s wrongdoing whom I have now been told were members of the security services, who had placed us under surveillance. Some of those people simply hassled us from day one, but others posed as our friends and then caused havoc and bled us dry.

One such person was Hilda King, with whom I shared a flat in Sellincourt Road, Tooting when I worked at St George’s. Hilda became my friend and months later turned on me, got nasty for no apparent reason and made me homeless. Before she did that however, Hilda was tremendously entertaining. Hilda was an Angel at Friern Barnet, the asylum in north London which by then was gradually closing down. She told me about the abuse of patients which she had witnessed, how she reported it to her nursing tutors and how she was withdrawn from the placement but no action was taken against the abusers. Hilda told me about the en masse shagging between the Top Docs and the Angels and fessed up that she had been involved with a man called Dr Pilgrim.

Hilda came from Liverpool and told me that she knew a nursing tutor up there who ‘knows Denbigh hospital and said it is terrible’. Hilda was one of those who enjoyed ringing Denbigh, presenting them with ludicrous situations and listening to them flounder.

Then there was the man who lived in the house on one side of us whom we would hear beating his girlfriend up and the family on the other side which featured a completely toxic woman who assaulted her kids and her husband almost daily. All of this on the patch of one of London’s finest teaching hospitals, where the local GPs held academic posts at St George’s and trained GPs. The local social services and NHS were facilitating a trafficking gang and everyone working in health and care knew it. Down the road at Streatham was Ambleside Avenue, the brothel owned by Cynthia Payne, which achieved notoriety when it was raided because the clients within included a peer, a bishop, lawyers and police officers. Top Docs from St George’s were also found in the brothel during the raids but that was never mentioned in the media. See post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’.

The Principal of St George’s, Sir William Asscher, had spent his previous career in Cardiff, among those who concealed the child molesting of the Speaker of the House, Thatcher’s friend George Thomas aka Lord Tonypandy. Asscher arrived at St George’s from Cardiff two years after the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s, Oliver Brooke, was jailed in 1986 for the possession of child porn. In 1987 Brooke was released early on appeal by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane in May 1987. Brooke was a key player in a pan-European paedophile gang.

Cynthia’s brothel was used as a networking opportunity between professional people, some of whom were not only interested in sex with adults.

Hilda told me much about her family in the north east of England. She maintained that they were all rather crazy and hadn’t been able to look after her and her sister very well. Hilda’s sister came to stay with us and was as entertaining as Hilda. I was told many stories about Avril, a cider drinker who was having an affair with Hilda’s dad. Avril had a daughter called Tracy, who laced Avril’s cider with corn remover in an attempt to poison Avril. Avril tasted the cider and said ‘ee this cider tastes like corn remover’ but she still drank it. Brown and me knew people who did this sort of thing when we were teenagers in Somerset, so I thought that the Avril stories were hilarious. Then there was the man whom Hilda’s mum was having an affair with, Mr Womack, who lived with his mother, so they were known to Hilda and her sister as ‘Womack and Womack’.

 

  • cover326x326.jpeg

 

Mr Womack was, according to Hilda and her sister, a molester and dishonest. Mr Womack worked as a postman…

If Hilda was working undercover, I have no way of knowing how much of what she told me was true or even if her sister really was her sister. However, they had obviously been designed to be suitable people to befriend me and who took the piss out of the sort of things and people that I did.

I shared a house with Hilda in 1989. So MI5 knew exactly what was going on at St George’s, at Friern Barnet and what the Top Docs and social services were ignoring/colluding with. MI5 also knew that Dafydd’s gang were trying to kill me and Brown.

It won’t have escaped MI5’s notice that all these years later, I am in hiding, having fled Wales, after it simply became too dangerous for me to stay there any longer. Dafydd is still on the medical register and is Chairing CAIS, the biggest substance abuse charity in Wales.

This can never, ever be excused or justified.

 

Yesterday, Mark Drakeford, who hopes to become Wales’s FM when Carwyn stands down in December, announced that when he becomes FM, the Welsh Gov’t will give ‘baby boxes’ to all new parents in Wales. Mark Drakeford is a former social worker who worked in Dyfed when Dyfed Social Services facilitated a paedophile ring. Drakeford also worked as a youth worker in Cardiff, when everyone was keeping schtum about George Thomas and others. Drakeford was Rhodri Morgan’s adviser on health and social care while Rhodri ignored the havoc in the north Wales NHS/social services. Drakeford was Health Minister when the Tawel Fan Scandal exploded in his face (see post ‘The Tawel Fan Scandal’). No-one was disciplined as a result of Tawel Fan, except for the nurse who blew the whistle, who was sacked and struck off. Some of those who were filmed abusing the patients on Tawel Fan Ward were subsequently caught abusing patients on Bryn Hesketh, another EMI ward (see previous posts).

I’m sure that for low income parents, a baby box with a few basics in it is a nice little goodie, but a functioning health and welfare system is much more important. The Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is in special measures because the mental health services and maternity services were deemed to be dangerous. Mothers and babies were among those who died.

Drakeford, you are an idiot.

 

This morning it has been announced that complex heart surgery at St George’s Hospital has been stopped after the death of five patients as a result of the ‘toxic’ relationships between the surgeons there. So why are people only being warned now? When Oliver Brooke was jailed, people stated that they would not take their children to St George’s. They were reassured by St George’s and the Gov’t that there was absolutely no problem, Brooke was a one-off and anyway he never abused patients. Brooke was not a one-off, his mates were all still there running the pan-European gang of which he was a leading member and I do not believe that Brooke never targeted his patients. Brooke’s offices at St George’s contained thousands and thousands of child porn pics. I knew the technician who found them – every cupboard in several offices was crammed full. No-one was ever told that, the impression given was that Ollie just had six or seven naughty pictures.

I always wondered why Jackie, the technician who found Brooke’s collection, wasn’t hounded out of her job in the way that I was. Then I remembered something the other day. Jackie kept having miscarriages. The obstetricians at St George’s ‘looked after’ her and just couldn’t find out what the problem was or why those miscarriages kept happening…

 

It’s OK everyone, the problems in the heart surgery unit at St George’s were identified and the rest of the hospital is fine, even though it is in special measures and has been for some time. Only five patients have died as a result of the crazed Top Docs. Honestly, only five of them. And they probably didn’t matter anyway, they won’t have been private patients and they might even have lived at Garrett Lane, as did the patient when I worked at St George’s who was described by a Top Doc as being ‘from a really scummy family in Garrett Lane’.

MI5: When the NHS has been completely colonised by serious organised crime, it is not a good idea to lie to the public to save the reputation of the NHS. It is a stupid, dangerous, lethal path to follow. By the time that Brown and I were 24 years old we could have given you the evidence that would have imprisoned Dafydd, D.G.E. Wood, Tony Francis, Sadie Francis and a few of their accomplices. Instead, although you were filming and recording what was going on, you stood to one side and watched as they destroyed our reputations and lives, as well as those of the other witnesses….

Theresa May, the UK’s PM, served as a Councillor for Merton, 1986-94. St George’s serves the Merton area.

 

BBC News Wales Online reported that ‘job cuts’ at prisons are to blame for the ‘drugs epidemic’. Europe’s largest prison, HMP Berwyn, located at Wrexham, was opened in Feb 2017 and has a major drugs problem. The UK Gov’t has recently ‘invested’ millions in a prison building programme. HMP Berwyn has filled up with Empowered Service Users and addicts, which was exactly what the Gov’t was told would happen. David Hanson, Leanne Wood and Hywel Williams begged for that prison because they believed that it would ‘regenerate the economy’. Prison’s don’t do that, but David, Leanne and Hywel wouldn’t listen.

 

Glyn Davies, the Tory MP for Montgomeryshire, has said that the proposal to cut the number of MPs in Wales is ‘undemocratic’, although he acknowledged that some members of the public don’t like MPs. Why ever would that be Glyn? Glyn was a pal of Emlyn Hooson and his wife Lady Shirley. Lord Emlyn for many years was the Liberal MP for Montgomeryshire. Emlyn was a barrister who concealed organised abuse for the whole of his career. Emlyn and Shirley were good mates with Lord and Lady Waterhouse.

I heard more about the proposed Boundary Commission changes that will remove the constituencies of more than a few MPs on the radio last night. Glyn might be worried, but it is the Labour Party who will suffer most, they will lose 30 seats. Including Jeremy Corbyn’s. That’s a bit of a coincidence isn’t it? Mind you, Thatch abolished the GLC to get rid of Red Ken and he rocked up in the Commons. Radio 4 made a reference to the ‘independent’ Boundary Commission. That’ll be as independent as the Boundary Commission that was Chaired by Ronnie Waterhouse, or the one that was Chaired by the well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend Professor Eric Sunderland which ensured that Clwyd County Council turned into a pumpkin in 1996, days after the Jillings Report was published, which confirmed that children in the care of Clwyd Social Services had been horrifically abused since the Council was established in 1974 and that there was a ‘culture’ of organised child abuse in north Wales stretching back to before WWII.

That was in the days of Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies and Huw Daniel’s proud father Professor J.E. Daniel, who was an Inspector of Schools and a theologian. Professor J.E. Daniel’s fellow founder of Plaid, Ambrose Bebb, was the grandfather of Guto Bebb, the Tory MP for Aberconwy, who has been mouthing off in the media recently regarding Brexit (see post ‘A Discovery Of Witches’). See previous posts for more info on Guto.

Operation Pallial was proud to announce the conviction of another historical sex offender from north Wales. The news report mentioned that he was ‘quite young’ when he committed the (small) number of offences. He shouldn’t have done it and I’m sure that it wasn’t a pleasant experience for whoever was on the receiving end, but lest everyone’s forgotten, Dafydd, Lucille Hughes, Dr Peter Higson, D.G.E Wood, Dr Sadie Francis, Grace Lewis-Parry, Huw Daniel, Mark Drakeford and many, many more ignored and concealed the mass abuse of children when they were grown adults holding professional positions. They are all free and living affluent lives.

 

In my post ‘A Legend Lives’, I reported that Sir Norman Bettison, a senior officer who was involved with the Hillsborough disaster and then went on to become the Chief Constable of Merseyside and then of West Yorkshire, had been told that all charges against him in relation to Hillsborough have been dropped. It has now been reported that another police officer involved with Hillsborough, David Duckenfield, will face a trial on 95 charges of gross negligence leading to manslaughter. Presumably Duckenfield doesn’t have as many mates in the highest echelons as does Bettison. After all, Sir Norman was Chief Constable of two of the forces which colluded with the North Wales Police for years with regard to the serious organised crime which stemmed from a trafficking gang who murdered witnesses.

The Cry Of The Lunatic

My post ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’ supplies a few details regarding the mental health system of the wider UK in the 1980s, when the British Gov’t was actively colluding with Dafydd and his gang’s activities in north Wales, which had by then got completely out of hand and were dominating the whole region. Since I wrote that post I have found out far, far more regarding the reasons why Dafydd et al were allowed to involve themselves in serious organised crime unhindered. It was of course because they were supplying the Westminster Paedophile Ring and were part of an international trafficking network.

They were so many people who protected Dafydd, let alone the wider gang across the UK, that I still have more people to name and events to correlate, but it is very obvious that by the mid-1980s, when Mary Wynch, Alison Taylor and I would not shut up about crimes against vulnerable people in north Wales, Dafydd’s mates in high places really pulled out all the stops to save the bacon of the gang.

Jimmy Savile was appointed to the Broadmoor task force in a non-executive role from Jan 1987. Professor Oliver Brooke of St George’s Hospital Medical School, a big name in the pan-European ring of which Dafydd et al were a part, pleaded guilty to child porn offences on 18 Dec 1986 at Kingston Crown Court. Savile had of course been involved with ‘volunteering’ at Broadmoor since 1968, but it was after Ollie was arrested and convicted that the Dept of Health under Secretary of State Norman Fowler and then Ken Clarke gave the man who was known to be a serial sex offender a leading role in the management of Broadmoor, Baroness Jean Trumpington being the genius of a junior Health Minister who actually did the deed (see post ’95 Glorious Years!’). Jimmy Savile is known to have procured children for the sexual use of ‘VIPs’. Broadmoor housed a great many ‘dangerous patients’ who had dared complain about being molested in various care settings. The institution was completely lawless and run by the POA, who were not only battering and molesting the patients but were also working massive swindles and embezzling huge quantities of money from the hospital coffers. Thatch’s Gov’t could not reign the POA in, obviously because those members who staffed Broadmoor – and of course Ashworth and Rampton – knew damn well that scores of their ‘dangerous’ patients had been banged up simply because they were witnesses to serious crime, including that committed by people at the highest levels of society.

It was on 11 May 1987 that Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane released Oliver Brooke from prison on appeal and compared Ollie’s extensive collection of child porn, some of which he had acquired from Amsterdam and Copenhagen, to a collection of cigarette cards. Geoffrey Lane referred to the numerous testimonials to Ollie’s good character that he had received, although I have not been able to discover who provided those testimonials or indeed who Ollie’s defence team were.

In early 1987, the DHSS mandarin responsible for mental health, Brian McGinnis, left his post. McGinnis was later barred from working with children after concerns about his conduct toward them (see post ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’). McGinnis was replaced by Cliff Graham, a close friend of Jimmy Savile, who then ensured that Savile was given a leading role in the Broadmoor management team. Cliff Graham was even more successful at ensuring that the UK’s mental health system doubled up as a people trafficking organisation than McGinnis had been (see post ‘The Old Devils’). It was Cliff Graham who as part of his ‘reforms’ recommended the establishment of the SHSA (Special Hospital Services Authority). Everything that Graham did served to make Dafydd et al even more untouchable.

It was from 1987 onward that people in Somerset who knew what was happening to me in north Wales found themselves befriended by the rich n famous with links to leading Tories (see posts ‘These Who Are Ready To Serve’ and ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’) and subsequently in receipt of a great deal of dosh.

After years of chaos and Savile-inspired crime at Broadmoor, in 1994 Cliff Graham was succeeded by Clive Wilson, who remarked on the lack of paperwork relating to previous events at the DHSS/DoH. In rather the same way that in 1995 when Nicola Davies QC was employed to conduct a review of the paperwork of the North Wales Police relating to the abuse of children in care in north Wales, Nicola – now Dame Nicola (see post ‘This Is What Happened To Nicola, Niclas, Merfyn, Joan and Kathryn’) – discovered that all the paperwork from the last ten years was missing.

The DHSS was a major and crucial Gov’t Dept. How exactly did it find itself devoid of paperwork while a gang of paedophiles were given free range within it? Perhaps some could ask former Secretaries of State Norman Fowler, Ken Clarke, William Waldegrave and Virginia Bottomley.

 

Let’s look at a few more of those who were given responsibility for Broadmoor while a gang of sex offenders were allowed to use it as a prison for their victims as well as witnesses to their crimes.

 

Sheila Drew Smith was the Chair of the Broadmoor Special Health Authority. Sheila was a member of the Committee on Standards in Public Life, 2012-18. In 2015, Sheila Drew Smith was commissioned by Home Secretary Theresa May to conduct an independent review of governance proposals made by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) in response to the Triennial Review of the IPCC.

Sheila also served and might still serve as the Chair of the National Approved Letting Scheme from 2013 and as a Committee Member of Safe Agents. Her previous roles have included: Board Member of the Housing Corporation, 2002-08; Board Member of the Audit Commission, 2004-10; Board Member of Infrastructure Planning Commission, 2010-12 and Office of the Regulator of Social Housing (Tenant Services Authority), 2008-12; Member of the Selection Panel, Network Rail, 2010-present; Member of the Appointments Panel, Bar Standards Board, 2010-present.

Sheila has also been a Director of Circles Services Ltd, Circle Anglia Foundation Ltd and the Centre for Economic Policy Research.

Sheila’s early career was as an accountant with PwC, 1984-95. She was a Board member and then the Chair of Tower Hamlets Housing Action Trust, 1999-04 and has been a Board member of the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation since 2009. So Sheila knows a great deal about the development of Canary Wharf which involved a number of those Tower Hamlets Councillors who had concealed the trafficking of youngsters between the East End and Dafydd’s gang in north Wales, as well as about the efforts of Sir Sam Everington, a Top Doctor and leading light in the BMA and Lord Andrew Mawson in concealing the same heap of crap. See posts ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’.

 

The junior Minister in the DoH with responsibilities for Broadmoor, 1988-90 – when Savile had free reign and Dafydd and his mates banged their victims up in there – was the Tory Roger Norman Freeman, Baron Freeman, MP for Kettering, 1983-97.

Freeman was born on the Wirral and educated at Whitgift School, Croydon and Balliol College. When he was at Oxford, Freeman was the President of the Oxford University Conservative Association, 1964. Before entering Parliament, Freeman was an accountant for an investment bank.

Freeman was a junior Minister for the Armed Forces (1986–88) and then moved to the DoH to collude with Dafydd and the paedophiles. Between 1990 and 1995, he was Minister of State for Public Transport and in that post he was responsible for steering through the Commons the Railways Bill, providing for the privatisation of British Rail and enacted as the Railways Act 1993.

In Lilibet’s 1993 Birthday Honours – by which time the North Wales Police had ‘failed to find any evidence’ of the paedophile ring which Roger Freeman was concealing, a leading light of which was Sir Peter Morrison, the brother of Dame Mary Morrison, Woman of the Bedchamber to Lilibet – Freeman became a Privy Councillor. 

On 26 June 1995, Freeman was brought into the Cabinet by John Major as Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and in this role, Freeman made a Ministerial visit to Lancaster Royal Grammar School, who’s most famous old boy is probably Cecil Parkinson, who also concealed Dafydd’s gang (see previous posts).

Freeman also inaugurated the process of privatisation of HMSO, though as a former Minister for MoD Procurement, one of HMSO’s major customers, he could be adjudged to have had a conflict of interest. He misjudged the effect of privatisation on HMSO, which, rather than preserve the business as a whole and protecting jobs, hastened the already-established process of splitting the business into its various parts, resulting in the destruction of some and the sale of others to foreign owners. The loss of jobs was massive and the old office building in Norwich is derelict. The National Audit Office later denounced the whole process as a debacle.

Freeman was narrowly defeated in the 1997 General Election and was rewarded with a peerage, just as Sir Ronald Waterhouse was calling the former kids in care who gave evidence at the Waterhouse Inquiry a pack of liars.

Lord Freeman was the chairman of the Charity SkillForce, 2004-16. He is now Patron of SkillForce and the Independent Transport Commission. His wife, Jennifer Freeman, is a former Secretary of the Victorian Society and is a specialist developer of architecturally historic buildings.

Savile’s mate Alan Franey, who was appointed General Manager of Broadmoor after Trumpers gave the green light for Savile and his friends to colonise the management of the institution, took early retirement in July 1997, after the depths to which Broadmoor had sunk were so low that it could not be concealed any longer. Jo Sheehan was appointed as an interim manager. Jo had previously been the HR Director at Broadmoor, so she was well-acquainted with the thugs of the POA who violently assaulted the victims of the paedophile gang that were incarcerated in there and also kept schtum about Jimmy Savile sexually assaulting them, although it has now been admitted that two female patients are thought to have killed themselves as a result of Savile. Complain about Dafydd and his mates assaulting you? You’ll be banged up in Broadmoor where Savile will then enjoy himself. St Helena Kennedy and the Friends Of The Oppressed Wimmin will not say a word and should you complain everyone will be reminded that you are a Dangerous Mental Patient (see post ‘Close Your Eyes And Make A WISH’).

After Jo, a new CEO was appointed to Broadmoor – Dr Julie Hollyman. Hollyman had previously worked as a Top Doctor at Springfield Hospital, the mental health unit attached to St George’s, when the Top Docs at St George’s and Springfield and their social work colleagues in Wandsworth Social Services were colluding with Dafydd et al in north Wales as well as with the paedophile gang on their own doorstep (see posts ‘Some Very Eminent Psychiatrists From London…’ and ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’). When I worked at St George’s I had a run-in with Julie Hollyman. I had rung her secretary up with the results of a pregnancy test for a Springfield patient and the secretary had been incredibly rude to me. I challenged the secretary regarding her dreadful manner and then Hollyman rang me, told me that her secretary was never been rude to anyone and then launched an attack on me. So I told Hollyman that her secretary had indeed been very rude and I wasn’t going to bandy words with Hollyman who had not heard the exchange. I suspected that Hollyman was going to make a complaint about me, so I told my senior colleagues what had happened. It transpired that they knew Hollyman, I was told that she was a bloody nightmare and Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain quipped that Hollyman should be a patient not a Top Doc. Which was all deeply ironic because the whole lot of them were colluding with Hollyman and her colleagues with regard to concealing organised abuse, although they clearly loathed her.

While Julie Hollyman worked at Springfield, patients and staff were murdered and a number of female patients were sexually assaulted, raped and became pregnant. At Broadmoor, there had been a scandal revolving around a female member of staff having a lesbian relationship with a patient – who had been transferred to Broadmoor from Springfield. The patient was transferred back to Springfield and the relationship with the member of staff from Broadmoor continued.

So Julie Hollyman as well as her Springfield colleagues had a very cosy relationship with Broadmoor before Hollyman was ever appointed CEO. When Hollyman was in post at Broadmoor, public statements were made regarding Hollyman ‘turning around’ Broadmoor and greatly improving things there. It later became clear that these statements were lies. But then when Hollyman was at Springfield, Springfield was being touted as a centre of excellence. For more information on the awful Hollyman and the many senior roles which she has held in the NHS, see post ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’.

 

Thomas Strachan Heppell was another mandarin in the DoH with responsibility for Broadmoor when it was run by a pan-European paedophile gang. Strachan Heppell served in the UK civil service, 1958-95 and worked on health and social services policy, as Deputy Secretary in the DHSS, 1986-95. Heppell was subsequently a Visiting Fellow at the LSE; Chair of the Family Fund Trust for Families With Severely Disabled Children, 1997-03; Board member of the Broadcasting Complaints Commission; Chair of the European Institute for Health, 2007. Strachan Heppell also served as a Director of Tor Bryan Residence in Essex.

 

The concerns regarding patients in special hospitals being subjected to extreme violence by the staff – and occasionally being killed by them – really took off after allegations were made of serious abuse of patients at Rampton in a 1980 Yorkshire Television documentary. People were shocked at what was revealed but there was no awareness at that time that many of those patients were not even ‘dangerous criminals’, yet alone victims of vicious sex abuse gangs which were being facilitated by the biggest names in British forensic psychiatry, including Prof Robert Bluglass of Birmingham University, Dr Paul Bowden of the Maudsley and Prof Nigel Eastman of St George’s/Springfield, all of whom were mates with Dafydd and who feature on my documents.

It was Sir John Boynton who was asked in 1980 to Chair the Inquiry into the abuse of patients at Rampton.

John Boynton was born in Carlisle and attended Glasgow Academy and Dulwich College, before taking a degree in law at London University and qualifying as a solicitor in 1939, undertaking his articles with the town clerk of Lambeth . In 1940 he joined the 15th Scottish Reconnaissance Regiment and served in France, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. 

Boynton served as a military magistrate in Germany after the end of the WWII, before returning to England where he worked as a solicitor for Derbyshire County Council. There was a long-standing paedophile ring in Derbyshire with links to Dafydd et al in north Wales. Boynton then served as Deputy Clerk of the Peace in Berkshire. In 1964 he moved to Cheshire, where he became Clerk of the Council and, after local government reorganisation in 1974, the first Chief Executive of the newly constituted Cheshire County Council, a post he held until 1979. Dafydd’s gang in north Wales extended as far as Cheshire. Cheshire Social Services colluded with the gang in north Wales/Cheshire. Lucille Hughes back in the mists of time had worked as a social worker in Cheshire, as did Margaret Hanson who is currently Vice-Chair of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. Margaret is married to David Hanson, the Labour MP for Delyn, who was appointed as Blair’s PPS in 2001, in the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part II’). Both Margaret and David Hanson were Councillors in Cheshire when kids in care of Cheshire County Council were abused. The Chair of the Betsi Board is Dr Peter Higson, who was a clinical psychologist at and then manager of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh when Dafydd was unlawfully imprisoning victims of the paedophile gang in the dungeon there.

Boyton was instrumental in establishing the Society of Local Authority Chief Executives (SOLACE), and became its founding President in 1974. He was also elected President of the Royal Town Planning Institute in 1976 and was a member of the Economic Planning Council for North West England. 

Upon Boyton’s retirement from local government, he was appointed by the British FCO to oversee new national elections in Rhodesia following the Lancaster Health Agreement, involving the rival guerrilla organisations led by Robert Mugabe and Joshua Nkomo. Despite evidence of intimidation of voters and candidates, Boynton concluded that the elections – which resulted in Mugabe’s ZANU-PF party securing a majority of seats – had been ‘a reflection of the wishes of the people’.

Boynton’s Inquiry found problems relating to Rampton’s isolation, lack of leadership and focus on containment rather than therapy. He definitely did not find that a good proportion of the patients were distressed people who had been witnesses to a trafficking gang and who had been fitted up by Top Doctors when they complained about this.

However, Boyton’s Report was highly critical of an internal complaints procedure under which not one of 178 complaints regarding Rampton over a four year period had been upheld. Boyton’s recommendations led to the formation, in 1983, of the Mental Health Act Commission, to oversee conditions under which mental patients were detained.

Throughout its entire existence, the MHAC was led by a series of people who all colluded with Dafydd and the gang, as detailed in previous posts. In 1987, the MHAC were fully on board with the efforts of Dafydd et al to frame and imprison me for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’. The plan unravelled when a nursing officer didn’t tell as many lies as required and when a police sergeant at Bangor Police Station refused to take phone calls from Angels who rang up claiming that I had threatened them as well and then stopped Dr D.G.E. Wood from coming into my cell. Dafydd and the MHAC didn’t realise that things had gone pear shaped and among my documents are letters from a David Ewart of the MHAC to the mental health services in north Wales confirming that I was now in Risley Remand Centre. See post ‘Security, Security’.

In 1994 I and another Hergest Unit patient made representation to the MHAC that Dafydd was behaving improperly with female patients and that complaints about him were not being investigated by the NHS. The MHAC admitted that there had been allegations of this nature against Dafydd stretching back to the 1960s. I heard no more from the MHAC and documents now in my possession show that after I raised concerns with the MHAC, the Chairman and CEO of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust failed to respond to communications from me or indeed the MHAC, but instead consulted lawyers to ask if there was ‘anymore that could be done’ to prosecute me (see post ‘The Banality Of Evil’).

Sir John Boynton was appointed Deputy Lieutenant of Cheshire in 1975 and was knighted in 1979. By that time, Sir Peter Morrison was the Tory MP for Chester and was abusing kids in care in north Wales, Cheshire and elsewhere.

Boyton married first, in 1947, to Gabrielle Stanglmaier, whom he met during his time in Germany. He married secondly, in 1979, to Edith Laane, who came from The Hague.

 

Boynton’s obituary in ‘Focus’, the newsletter of SOLACE, told us that Boynton ‘raised the profile’ of SOLACE as a body ‘which was respected by senior civil servants’ ‘to consult on government proposals for legislation and administrative changes’. When questioned by the press on the need to hold the SOLACE Annual Dinner at the Savoy, Boynton replied that ‘Claridges was fully booked’. At least Boynton and his mates could catch up with Ronnie Waterhouse at The Savoy, Waterhouse virtually lived at the Garrick and the Savoy.

 

Baroness Lucy Faithfull was someone who knew a great deal about the young lives of some of those who ended up in the clutches of the secure hospitals. Faithfull was born in South Africa, the daughter of an Angel and an army officer. When her father was killed in WWI in 1916, her mother returned to England. Lucy was educated at Bournemouth and studied then at the Sorbonne, which she financed by work in a nursery in Paris. At some point Faithfull also gained a degree in social sciences from Birmingham University. After her education, Faithfull worked at Birmingham Settlement for three years until 1935 as a social worker, running clubs and acting as a caseworker. She subsequently worked in the Education Dept of the London County Council as a care committee organiser. Child abuse was concealed by the London County Council. During WWII and until 1948, Faithfull served as a regional welfare officer for the evacuee programme. In the following decade Lucy Faithfull became employed as an Inspector in the Children’s Dept of the Home Office, which at the time colluded with the abuse of children.

Faithfull joined Oxford City Council in 1958 as one of the first children’s officers and she was appointed its Director of Social Services in 1970, retiring in 1974. There was a substantial problem with child abuse in the Oxford area, which was concealed by the Oxford City Council’s Social Services, including by Oxford social worker Barbara Kahan and Barbara’s husband, child psychiatrist Dr Vladimir Kahan. Barbara Kahan became a social work adviser on children in care to Sir Keith Joseph in Ted Heath’s Gov’t and remained on hand to advise Gov’t and organisations concerned with the welfare of children throughout the 1980s. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’. Lucy Faithfull knew Barbara Kahan as well as Lord Longford, Longford being someone who spent decades colluding with the serious abuse of children, prisoners and psych patients (see post ‘Comedies Of Menace’).

It was Thatch who offered Lucy Faithfull a seat in the Lords – Faithfull was a Tory, although when she was offered her peerage, people claimed not to know that. Faithfull refused but soon gave in and accepted a peerage when Thatch asked her again. Faithfull was the first social worker to sit in the Lords, so she had obviously been very useful to someone. In the Lords, Faithfull was instrumental in the passing of the Children Act 1989, which seems to have done as little for vulnerable children as every other bit of legislation alleged to ‘protect’ them has. Faithfull helped to establish and from 1995 Chaired the All Party Parliamentary Group for Children, which has acted as a magnet for the paedophiles’ friends in Parliament.

Lucy Faithfull was a ‘vociferous opponent’ of Home Secretary Michael Howard’s Criminal Justice and Public Order Bill of 1994 which proposed the establishment of secure ‘training centres’ in the grounds of adult prisons for children aged between 12 and 14, arguing that locking up children is ineffective and that the huge cost of these could be better spent intervening with families at an earlier stage. Faithfull remained silent about Michael Howard’s ruination of Mary Wynch which had occurred the year previously but became known to Parliament in 1994 (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’). Faithfull did of course keep schtum throughout all those investigations and inquiries during the 1980s and 90s into the abuse of children in care as well.

Faithfull was Trustee of a number of voluntary organisations, notably the Caldecott Community and Bessels Leigh Schools. She was involved with the NSPCC, was the Vice-President of the National Association of Voluntary Hostels from 1978 and of Barnardo’s from 1989. Barnardo’s was yet another organisation which colluded with the abuse and trafficking of children in its care. Rhodri Morgan’s widow Julie is the former Assistant Director of Barnardo’s. Julie and Rhodri kept quiet about organised child abuse throughout their careers and were pals with Jim Callaghan, who along with his wife Audrey also concealed child abuse, Audrey having done so when she served on the London County Council (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’).

Faithfull was one of the founders and President of the NCB (National Children’s Bureau), with which Barbara Kahan and the paedophile social work academic Peter Righton were also involved.

In 1993 Faithfull founded the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, which works ‘as a child protection agency helping sexually abused children and their families’. The Lucy Faithfull Foundation has received much good PR as being ‘the only organisation which works with paedophiles who want to change their behaviour’. Interestingly enough, the Lucy Faithfull Foundation does no such thing. Two of my friends were supporting a man who had served a prison sentence for the possession of child porn who was genuinely keen to change his behaviour, after receiving no ‘therapy’ in prison, although that prison told the world that it did provide therapy for sex offenders. My friends contacted the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, only to be told that they did not offer any sort of counselling or therapy for offenders and could not recommend anyone who did. However the Foundation did subsequently recommend that my friends should purchase two self-help manuals on porn addiction – which wasn’t actually the problem of the man whom they were supporting. By this time he was back in prison for breaching his parole conditions. So my friends asked me if I would take the books into him because he did want to read them and the Governor of the prison had given permission for him to read the books in the prison library. I took the books in, only to be told by the prison officers in reception that I was not allowed to give him the books, even if the Governor had given permission and anyway they knew nuzzing. So I visited the man without the books. As far as I know Stafford Prison still has the books. Stafford Prison advertises itself as a prison for sex offenders which helps them address their offending behaviour etc, but then the Lucy Faithful Foundation tells the world that it offers help to sex offenders.

Lucy Faithfull of Tall Stories died unmarried in London in 1996, so didn’t live long enough to participate in the cover-up which was the Waterhouse Inquiry.

 

 

Baroness Lucy Faithfull knew Baroness Beatrice Serota. Beatrice Serota was brought up in the East End of London, the daughter of Jewish refugees from central Europe. She was educated at John Howard School and at the LSE. Serota joined the Civil Service in 1941 and worked in the crucial Ministry of Fuel and Power throughout WWII until 1946.

Serota became a member of the Hampstead Borough Council immediately after WWII and subsequently served successively on the London County Council as the member for Brixton and the GLC as the member for Lambeth. Investigations into the paedophile ring in Lambeth which during the 1970s, 80s and 90s was linked to Dafydd’s gang revealed that organised abuse in Lambeth reached back as far as the 1940s.

Serota chaired the LCC children’s committee for seven years and was a member of the Central Training Council for Child Care for at least nine years. The LCC concealed child abuse. Serota became a Chief Whip when she was on the GLC. Serota was Vice-Chair of ILEA, 1964-67. Members of ILEA colluded with organised child abuse for years, even before it became notorious as a bastion of the ‘loony left’ in the 1970s.

It was Serota’s ‘distinguished career in local government and the work that she did for children’ which in 1967 brought her a seat in the Lords as a ‘recognised authority on the subject’. Just like Lucy Faithfull!

Harold Wilson appointed Baroness Serota as a Gov’t Whip almost immediately that she was through the door of the Lords and then proposed her for the post of Deputy to Richard Crossman, having refused to promote Fattersley, whom Wilson suspected of disloyalty. Thus Serota was Crossman’s Minister of State, first at the Department of Health in 1968 and then in the combined DHSS the following year. Serota knew what Dafydd and Gwynne the lobotomist were getting up to in north Wales in those days and she’ll have known that huge swathes of the rest of the mental health system, including the ‘flagship’ that was the Maudsley, were facilitating the abuse of vulnerable people (see posts ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ and ‘The Mentor’).

Serota’s obituary in ‘The Guardian’ commented that her time as Deputy to Dick Crossman ‘proved to be her only period of office as a government minister and yet she spent a lifetime in politics’ and that ‘Until the end of her life she was devoted to the London suburb of Hampstead, where she lived as an adult and cut her political teeth as a young married woman’. Hampstead housed numerous Top Doctors and members of the political class who were, like Serota, keeping a lid on the organised abuse of children and vulnerable people. ‘The Guardian’ tells us that Serota ‘was widely respected and liked in the Lords as a capable and competent person. She was conscientious, she got on with things and yet, as Dick Crossman identified early on in her political career, she was not going to challenge others because of personal ambition. She perhaps lacked decisiveness, that was what he thought. But this did not prevent her from having a very busy life, involving many decisions about the lives of others.’

What a bloody nightmare – an interfering old bag of a useful idiot who wielded power over The Poor while she lived among the best in Hampsty and looked after their interests.

 

Hansard, March 1969, records an account of the Lords discussion regarding the Report of the Committee of Inquiry into the Ely Hospital, Cardiff. The Committee of Inquiry was set up in 1967 by the Welsh Hospital Board at the request of Sir Kenneth Robinson, the then Minister of Health and one of the bestest friends that Dafydd and the paedophiles have ever had (see previous posts), to investigate allegations of severe ill-treatment of patients. The Committee was Chaired by one Geoffrey Howe QC. The Ely Hospital Scandal resulted from a whistleblowing nursing assistant who was discredited and smeared in every way possible, although his allegations that patients were being appallingly abused were found to be true. In its defence, Ely Hospital maintained that matters on their patch weren’t as bad as at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. There was no investigation into Denbigh despite this line of defence being used by Ely.

Serota made a statement to the Lords about the Committee of Inquiry into Ely in her capacity as the Minister of State for the DHSS. Even old Howe, who before being elected to the Commons had worked as a barrister on the corrupt Chester and Wales Circuit and had been a close friend of Ronald Waterhouse since they were both at university, had to admit that things at Ely were very, very bad, what with staff grossly abusing their positions, stealing from the hospital and ill-treating patients. By the time that Howe Chaired that Inquiry, he had been the Tory MP for Bebington on the Wirral, 1964-66, so will have known that the empire of Dafydd et al reached as far as there. Howe was to spend many more years in the Commons and then in the Lords colluding with Dafydd et al and I do wonder if Howe may have had a role in the destruction of F, the north Wales mental health patient who had witnessed very serious crime on the part of professional people, both where he grew up in Surrey – Howe was an MP for a Surrey constituency from 1970-92 – and later when F moved to Bethesda (see previous posts).

Serota fessed up that Howe’s Report on Ely made it clear that ‘Responsibility for serious deficiencies in standards of medical and nursing services and of administration is attributed to the senior staff of the hospital, to the Hospital Management Committee and to the Welsh Hospital Board. The Committee also criticises the present procedures for dealing with complaints in the hospital service as a whole.

‘We didn’t know’.

The poor old Lords was deeply shocked by Howe’s Report and there was a great deal of ‘never againing’, while stressing that it was only CERTAIN WARDS of Ely Hospital which had been roundly condemned and many comments about the need to think long and hard about this Report before anyone made any rash comments or decisions. Many of the Lords reassured themselves that Ely was an isolated case. Within just a few years it became clear that virtually every long-stay hospital had problems as bad as Ely, if not worse.

Lord Brooke of Cumnor told the Lords that ‘most of us would agree with what the noble Baroness said about not generalising from this lamentable case, but, instead, extending our support and appreciation to the devoted staff who work in many other long-stay hospitals—sometimes, I am sorry to say, under almost soul-destroying conditions. As to what is wrong, the responsibility of Ministers is involved, as well as of Regional Hospital Boards and hospital management committees. Do the Government recognise that the whole of the hospital service is critically short of money and that, while hospitals for the mentally subnormal are in the greatest need of all if they are to satisfy modern requirements, their needs cannot be rightly made good by simply twisting more tightly still the financial screw on other hospitals?’

Thank God that the staff of Ely weren’t a bunch of violent psychopaths, they were simply working in soul-destroying conditions with not enough dosh. As indeed the Angels have been on every occasion on which they have been caught red-handed battering the living daylights out of the vulnerable or helping themselves to NHS funds.

 

Lord Brooke of Cumnore was Henry Brooke, who survived Harold Macmillan’s Night of the Long Knives to become Home Secretary, 1962-64. Brooke is considered by some to have been one of the worst Home Secretary’s of the 20th century. Before entering Parliament, Henry Brooke worked in the Conservative Research Dept under the Chairmanship of Neville Chamberlain. Brooke was the Tory MP for Lewisham West, 1938-45, then served on the London County Council, 1946-51, for much of that time as Leader of the Conservatives on the LCC. Brooke also served on Hampstead Borough Council until 1955. Brooke returned to Parliament in 1950, serving in various roles including as Minister for Welsh Affairs in Macmillan’s Gov’t.

It was Brooke who, as Minister for Welsh Affairs, caused fury throughout north Wales through his crucial support of Liverpool Council’s bid to secure Westminster’s approval of an Act of Parliament to flood Cwm Tryweryn in Meirionydd to build a reservoir to provide water for Liverpool – drowning the village of Capel Celyn in the process – and thus by-passing Welsh local authority opposition to the scheme. However, largely in response to the protests over Tryweryn, Brooke subsequently attracted investment to Wales, including such projects as the Severn Bridge, the steelworks at Llanwern and the Heads of the Valleys Road. I note that the beneficiaries of Brooke’s investment which resulted from the fury over Tryweryn though were those in south Wales. North Wales lost a Welsh-speaking village and a valley and everyone was told to stop bellyaching because the scousers needed water.

Dafydd built up much of his power-base among Plaid supporters as a result of Tryweryn. Dafydd was still a medical student at Liverpool University when the anti-Tryweryn activism was happening and Dafydd travelled to Ireland in order to learn techniques at the knee of Irish republican activists (see post ‘A Network Stretching Back Decades…’) So after convincing Welsh activists that he was Of Them and would even resort to violent activity to defend Language and Nation, Dafydd busied himself cultivating the company of the corrupt professional classes of Liverpool who’s co-operation he would soon put to good use in building up a trafficking ring to supply celebs and politicians of all colours with young people for sex, as Henry Brooke, Baroness Serota et al knew by the time that they were spouting off in the Lords about the caring Angels of Ely Hospital.

Henry Brooke was given a peerage in 1966. He married Barbara Brooke, who was the daughter of a Welsh Minister and was given a peerage in her own right after her loyal service concealing the crimes of Dafydd and other Top Docs. Barbara Brooke was a member of Hampstead Council, a seat she held between 1948 until 1965; she also was a Joint Vice-Chairman of the Conservative Party, 1954-64. Barbara was active in a number of health organisations in her lifetime, including being a member of the North West Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board from 1954–66; Chair of The Queen’s Institute of District Nursing from 1961–71; and the North London Hospital Management Committee from 1963-66.

Baroness Brooke was really impressed with the Seebohm Report (see post ‘The Great Stink’) and I think that she might have been a member of the Seebohm Committee. Seebohm’s recommendations that new personal Social Services Depts should be established within local gov’t and take over children’s services, as well as the care of the mentally ill and handicapped, were despised by Dick Crossman but nonetheless accepted and were put into action from 1971 onward, by which time Ted Heath was PM. Barbara stated that ‘What the Seebohm Committee wants is a family service geared to meeting as many as possible of the needs of the family’. It was the Seebohm Report which led to the dysfunctional Social Services Depts which were run and colonised by paedophiles who then used the role of those Depts as a ‘family service’ to destroy the families of their victims if they complained about what was happening to their kids.

Here’s Babs, ready to dispense advice to the lower orders:

 

 

Barbara was a Dame and a Baroness.

Henry and Babs Brooke had four children:

Peter Brooke was the Tory MP for the Cities of London and Westminster, 1977-2001. Peter Brooke was, among other things, the Chairman of the Tory Party, 1987-89 and Secretary of State for N Ireland, 1989-92. Guess who concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al when Dafydd was in middle age, as well as the Kincora Boys’ Home elite paedophile ring? Brooke was rewarded with a peerage in 2001, when the outrage over the cover-up which was the Waterhouse Report had died down a bit.

Henry Brooke was a judge and Lord Justice of Appeal.

Honor Brooke, who married Dr Thomas Nigel Miller

Margaret Brooke, who married Dr James Pulfer.

During the Lords debate regarding Ely Hospital, Lord Amulree stated that ‘I should like to associate myself with what the noble Lord, Lord Brooke, said about the staff of these hospitals. Like him, I have had considerable experience of the conditions under which they work and of the marvellous work they manage to do under those deplorable conditions. One wants to pay the biggest tribute one can to the devotion to duty which they show…The first comment I would make (possibly it is unwise, but I should like to make it) is that it is the attitude of the senior staff that really lays down the attitude in the whole hospital, from the senior doctor down to the junior member of the ward staff. I am pleased to see that the Minister is to consider some way of changing the form of complaint, and possibly to introduce some form of inspection—I do not mean that in a pejorative way at all, but in a general, friendly and hopeful kind of way…’

Lord Amulree need never have worried about an inspection system which would be in any way ‘pejorative’, that will absolutely never happen. No matter how serious the crimes of Top Doctors and Angels and how many people they kill, all they ever get is indeed a few words ‘in a general, friendly and hopeful kind of way…’

That’s why there are bodies buried out at Denbigh which no-one will recover…

Lord Amulree was of course a Top Doctor, Basil Mackenzie, the 2nd Baron Amulree. Furthermore Lord Dr Baz was a ‘leading advocate of geriatric medicine’ and it was the EMI patients in Ely Hospital who were being abused, so it really should have been Lord Dr Baz who was most condemning rather than wanting a few friendly hopeful words to be had with the patient bashers.

Amulree was born in South Kensington and was educated at Lancing College and Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. Upon graduating Amulree joined the Ministry of Health, initially working on the delivery of cancer services, but left in 1949 to become physician in charge of the geriatric department
