Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?

I have been very rude about Dr David Healy on this blog because since the early 1990s, David has worked cheek by jowl with the traffickers of north Wales yet he has not mentioned a word about their criminal misconduct and abuse of patients. David certainly doesn’t waste his own time with them and he has made it obvious for years that he thinks that they are complete tossers, but he has never blown the whistle on any of them.

What David has done however is to very effectively expose the dreadful practices of Big Pharma. I received an angry comment months ago from a fan of David’s asking me ‘Do you actually read David’s blog?’ Of course I do! David Healy is a Top Doctor who knows his science and his statistics which is rather more unusual than people outside of the field would imagine. I don’t have time to read all of his associated outputs, but yes, I do believe what David publishes about clinical trials and the efficacy or otherwise of drugs and I would be happy to rely on him for info regarding that. My problem with David is that he is the one really clever Top Doctor that Gwynedd has – believe me, most of the others are so bad that they would simply be nothing but immensely entertaining if they weren’t so dangerous – and he cannot possibly have failed to notice what has gone on around him, but he hasn’t said a word…

However, I must thank David, because his latest blog post has reminded me of something that I should have followed up by now but I haven’t. David’s latest post mentions Richard Doll and Doll’s colleague Austin ‘Tony’ Bradford Hill, as well as Archie Cochrane. David Healy will know a great deal about their work because they were epidemiologists and medical statisticians, indeed the fathers of those disciplines. Those three really are considered to be giants of medicine. Sir Richard Doll of course made his name when he demonstrated the link between smoking and lung cancer and Sir Austin Bradford Hill was involved with some of that work as well.

My post ‘They Think It’s All Over – It Is Now’ discusses an absolutely laughable piece of ‘research’ which was published by some Top Doctors and medical statisticians from Bangor in the ‘British Journal of Cancer’, Dec 1990: ‘Gastric Cancer In Gwynedd. Possible Links With Bracken.’ The authors are: O.P. Galpin; C.J. Whitaker, Rh. Whitaker; and J.Y. Kassab. Galpin’s and Rh. Whitaker’s affiliation is given as Ysbyty Gwynedd and C.J. Whitaker’s and Kassab’s affiliation is given as the Centre for Applied Statistics, UCNW.

The authors of this paper claimed to have found an association between people who grew up in Gwynedd and drank buttermilk as children and the development of gastric cancer in later life. The theory was that cows in Gwynedd ingested much bracken while they grazed and that carcinogens from bracken passed into the cows’ milk…

For some unexplained reason, the geniuses from Bangor had been assisted by Sir Richard Doll in the early stages of the research and this was stated on the paper. Someone really hyped up this ground-breaking paper as soon as it was published and it was given much coverage in the media across the world.

Days later questions were asked about the research and shortly there was an admission that the study was fundamentally flawed and people quietly stopped discussing it. In my post ‘They Think It’s All Over – It Is Now’ I explain that the study was SO fundamentally flawed – one reason being that the control sample consisted of a grand total of three and the sample also included someone who didn’t actually have gastric cancer – that I cannot understand why the journal ever accepted it for publication.

How and why Sir Richard Doll ever agreed to be associated with this dog’s breakfast I never understood.

However, the paper was published and the global leaders from Bangor received worldwide acclaim – before they became a laughing stock just days later – in Dec 1990, when Dafydd et al (it was Dafydd’s mates who wrote and advised on the paper) really needed good PR. Allegations of linked paedophile gangs across the UK involving High Society figures were beginning to surface, police investigations and inquiries were being launched and Lord Greville Janner had been interviewed under police caution.

It was in Dec 1990 when I was finally forced out of my job at St George’s Hospital Medical School and there was yet another attempt by Dr Tony and Sadie Francis to have me imprisoned on the basis of ‘evidence’ which their own lawyers knew was fabricated.

By Dec 1990, Dafydd, Drs Tony and Sadie Francis, Gwynedd Health Authority and Gwynedd Social Services were dragging me through the High Court constantly (see previous posts eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’) on the basis of their extensive perjury. The legal actions was being co-ordinated by the MDU, the MDU’s solicitors Hempsons, Andrew Park (the crooked lawyer who worked for the Welsh Office) and Ron Evans (the crooked lawyer who worked for Gwynedd Social Services) among others. The prosecutions brought for contempt of court in the attempts to imprison me were authorised by the Attorney General, Sir Patrick Mayhew, who before he became a Tory MP, was a bent barrister who worked for the MDU. Mayhew was responsible for ensuring that Dr Morris Fraser, a paedophile child psychiatrist, was allowed to continue to practice after he had been convicted of sexually assaulting a child in the 1970s. Fraser had been based in Belfast but left there to work at Springfield Hospital, the mental health unit attached to St George’s Hospital Medical School and then UCL. In 1989 I had begun working at St George’s and at the very beginning of 1991 I was admitted to Springfield Hospital, only to later discover that Springfield had a hotline to Dafydd, Tony Francis and Lucille Hughes and were colluding with them (see post ‘Some Very Eminent Psychiatrists From London’). Wandsworth Social Services were also involved and wrote to Lucille telling her that if she wanted a friendly chat with them she only had to ask. I have never had any contact with Wandsworth Social Services and the first that I knew of all this was some two years ago when my lawyer forwarded me the rest of my medical records.

At the time a big paedophile/trafficking ring was operating in south London which had links to the gang in north Wales (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’). Donald Naismith, the Director of Wandsworth Education Authority, was known to be a paedophile (see previous posts). One of the corrupt MSF reps at St George’s, David Hole, lived in Wandsworth, was an active member of the local SDP and I think might have been a Wandsworth Councillor.

 

The ludicrous journal article written by Dafydd’s mates was written long before it was published. The original version of the paper was submitted in Oct 1988, the referees gave advice and it was revised and accepted for publication in Dec 1990 (yet still no-one noticed the sample of three and in the inclusion of someone who didn’t have the illness under investigation.)

I know some of the people who co-authored that paper and I doubt that they wrote even the horse shit that they did write very speedily. It will have taken them at least a year and probably longer for someone to devise the dastardly plan, get that lot to get their act together, stop their infighting and actually write the first draft of the paper. So I suspect that someone sent up the Paedophiles In Distress Flare at some point in the summer or autumn of 1987 and for some reason Richard Doll agreed to help out.

 

On 11 June 1987 there was a General Election. It was the one which the Windbag really believed that he was going to win but he lost spectacularly. The polls had famously predicted a Windbag landslide and by June 1987 Mandy had allegedly transformed and ‘modernised’ the Labour Party, as well as the Windbag, by putting a picture of a red rose wherever he could find space for one. Sadly for Mandy,  thousands of images of a red rose were no substitute for a competent leader and the poor old Windbag was caught unawares when he lost the election.

The Windbag and his wife spent much time and energy campaigning in north Wales in the run up to June 1987. The Windbag knew Tony Francis from their days at Cardiff University and Mrs Windbag was from a family of Labour Party activists in Holyhead. Mrs Windbag’s parents were so well-connected to the Labour hierarchy through people such as Lord Cledwyn, MP for Anglesey and former Secretary of State for Wales under Harold Wilson, that they had enjoyed a hotline to the very top of the Labour Party as long ago as the 1960s (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’).

In 1985 Tony Francis told me that the Tories would never win another General Election and that the Windbag would be the next PM. I told him that the Tories would win again.

A few other people got their hopes up in 1987 as well:

Gang of Four line-up

 

In 1985 or thereabouts Dr D.G.E. Wood told me that Dr Death ‘had guts’. Fortunately for the rest of us, Dr Death might have had guts but he never managed to acquire many seats. Dr D.G.E. Wood was a big fan of Dr Death. Brown observed at the time that Wood was closing ranks with ‘shits in his own profession again’. Dr Death personally knew some of the Top Doctors in north Wales who were facilitating the paedophile/trafficking ring. For further details of the Gang of Four and their many links to those we know and love, see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’.

Prior to the 1987 General Election, Sir Peter Morrison had been Deputy Chairman of the Tory Party; after Thatch won the election, he was appointed Minister of State for Energy. Throughout it all Morrison was abusing kids in care, including those in north Wales and Cheshire.

Previous posts have detailed the well co-ordinated plans on the part of Dafydd and the Drs Francis et al to have me framed and imprisoned for a serious offence in 1987; the plans were formulated in the weeks running up to the General Election and it was presumed that I would be in the slammer very shortly after the General Election. David Ewart of the Mental Health Act Commission and Risley Remand Centre were fully on board with it all, as were the managers of Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities. Andrew Park at the Welsh Office will have no doubt had a hand in it all as well.

Douglas Hurd was Home Secretary throughout this en masse corruption involving the criminal justice system. Hurd was the nephew of the botanist Professor Edred Henry Corner, who knew the botanist Professor Greig-Smith, a leading light in the Plant Biology Dept at UCNW (Bangor University) where I had completed my first degree three years previously. D.G.E. Wood’s wife Chris Wood was a lecturer in the Plant Biology Dept and the Woods were mates with many of the other staff at Bangor, in the Plant Biology Dept as well as other staff. Another Plant Biology lecturer, Ralph Oxley, was married to Isobel Hargreaves, who was a social worker employed by Gwynedd Social Services and a colleague of the paedophile gang.

At that time, Dafydd still called the shots in the Psychology Dept at Bangor and of course huge swathes of the institution’s infrastructure, including the Principal Sir Eric Sunderland, were on board with Dafydd’s gang and their network.

Dafydd and the paedophiles had been getting quite anxious because in Dec 1986, a big player in the wider ring, Professor Oliver Brooke of St George’s Hospital Medical School, had been jailed for the possession of child porn and the police – or at least a contingent of honest police – were closing in on them all. Distress flares were being sent up all over the place and in May 1987 Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane came to the rescue and Ollie Brooke was released on appeal, on the grounds that he’d suffered enough and that Ollie’s vast collection of kiddie porn was no more worrying than a collection of cigarette cards. See previous posts eg. ‘Oliver!’

Lord Brian Flowers, a nuclear physicist, was a big hitter in London University at the time. Flowers spent years as Rector of Imperial College and served as the VC of London University as well as the VC of Manchester University. Flowers not only spent years concealing the serious misconduct and research fraud on the part of Top Doctors in London University, but Flowers was also concealing the trafficking ring of which St George’s/Springfield and other London University hospitals were part. Flowers came from and went to school in Swansea and was loyal to his old pals in Wales (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’). There were many connections between Bangor and the crooks of London University, but one of the most useful was Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies, a former lecturer at Bangor who had subsequently spent much of his career at Imperial College along with Brian Flowers and who then retired to the Bangor area, where he spent many happy decades on the Council of UCNW making damn sure that the trafficking ring was not worried unduly (see post ‘I Told You I Was Trouble’). Wynn Humphrey Davies was from a well-known Liberal family in north Wales.

 

My documents suggest that an order to Get Her was sent in my direction in about May 1987 when Ollie was let loose on the world once more.

Thanks Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey!

‘Be ye ever so high, the law is above you’ as Lord Denning famously said. Although Lord Denning knew that was not true and confirmed this when he dismissed the appeal of the Birmingham Six stating that if their convictions were overturned, it would point to such serious corruption within every layer of the criminal justice system that such an ‘appalling vista’ could never be allowed. When the convictions of the Birmingham Six were overturned in March 1991, Lord Denning famously remarked that if they had been hung there wouldn’t have been all this bloody fuss.

Yes and if Dafydd and the numerous Top Doctors who lied, perjured themselves, destroyed/forged/planted evidence had got away with it, I would now be sitting in Broadmoor with the world being reassured that I was phenomenally dangerous, so much so that I should never be let out. All because I complained about a disgusting old Top Doctor who unbeknown to me was facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring and had spent his career lobotomising anyone who dared complain. The irony is that Gwynne the Lobotomist died in the latter part of 1986, but so many other people had hitched their cart up to his fortunes and joined in with his crimes that the wagon kept rolling for decades after Gwynne was pushing up the daisies.

Gwynne’s abuse ring originally involved little more than the north Wales region. By the mid-1980s it had expanded into a pan-European trafficking ring, including hundreds of children’s homes and it also had a very profitable booming side-line in child porn and drugs.

The Royal Courts of Justice, where Denning sat, 1944-56, in the High Court and Court of Appeal and again, 1962-82 as Master of the Rolls. I appeared there myself in the spring of 1991, after Tony and Sadie Francis perjured themselves and requested my imprisonment. I travelled down from Rachub, Bethesda on the bus to Bangor, then on the train to London. I did not have a lawyer with me. No questions were asked by anyone, although Wimmin’s Champ Baroness Helena Kennedy was involved in a Wimmin’s Rights Test Case in a neighbouring court to the one in which I appeared and as I left the Royal Courts of Justice I was waylaid by a Wimmin’s Protest asking for my support. St Helena was defending Sara Thornton who had murdered her husband. Sara’s case was one involving domestic violence and Sara received huge support from the Wimmin’s campaigners of the Labour Party, including Jo Richardson (see post ‘ It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’).
  • Strange but true for March

 

As explained in previous posts, Dafydd et al’s Dastardly Plan backfired because Sgt Morgan and a nursing officer, Jeff Crowther, didn’t tell as many lies as were required and I was not charged with threatening to stab anyone. So Tony Francis then rang Sgt Morgan and told him that he was sending a Top Doctor over to the Bangor Police Station to section me. Sgt Morgan told Francis that the Top Doctor would not be allowed into the police station. Then D.G.E. Wood arrived at the station and demanded to see me. Sgt Morgan refused to let him in. I had still not been charged with any offence yet was in Bangor Police Station after midnight when Dafydd came crashing in. No-one told Dafydd to bugger off. Dafydd spent about three minutes in my cell and said ‘Well I won’t be offering ewe any help tonight, I think ewe should be in prrrison’.

Then Alwyn Jones my solicitor turned up, told me that the police had told him that Dafydd had been to see me and asked me what Dafydd had said. So I replied ‘I think ewe should be in prrrison’. Alwyn laughed and said ‘he’s saying that because you’ve made a complaint about him’.

I was released from Bangor Police Station the next morning after being charged with a minor public order offence after Francis et al admitted that no I hadn’t tried to stab anyone but ooh we were terrified, please charge her with something at least. I then returned to Leicester where I was living at the time.

After I finished my MSc in May 1987, I had moved in with Brown at his place in Leicester, where I lived until April 1988. We had no idea at the time, but Leicester was another hub of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and by 1987 the police were finally taking an interest in the Leicestershire social worker Frank Beck and his mate Greville Janner. When Dafydd et al trumped up the charge against me in the summer of 1987, Alwyn sought an ‘independent’ expert report regarding me from Dr James Earp, a Top Doctor at the Towers Hospital in Leicester (see post ‘An Expert From England’). Earp colluded with the gang in north Wales and I now know that Earp and his colleagues were part of the professional network in Leicestershire who were concealing that part of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts. Earp himself was at the centre of a big mental health scandal in 1993 which involved the murderer James Rudman; the case suggested massive corruption in the criminal justice system, the police and the NHS in Leicester (see post ‘Gwlad y Menig Gwynion’).

 

After I narrowly escaped being fitted up by Dafydd, Francis et al for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’ just after the 1987 General Election, I went to see MIND in Leicester as well as William Bingley, the Legal Director of MIND HQ in London, to discuss events in north Wales. The man in Leicester MIND told me that he knew of serious problems caused by a ‘Mafia’ in north Wales which were alleged to be ‘tied up with Freemasonry’ and centred upon a ‘Welsh doctor who’s been up there for years and has everything stitched up for himself’.

It was the man from Leicester MIND who sent me to London to see William Bingley. Bingley discussed Dafydd’s crimes at length with me, described Dafydd as a ‘charming psychopath’ and told me that if I ever returned to north Wales I would undoubtedly be arrested by Dafydd and the gang. I found out years later that Bingley and his mum Lady Juliet Bingley and probably his dad Admiral Sir Alec Bingley as well were part of Dafydd’s network and had been since the mid-1960s (see previous posts). The man from Leicester MIND was also fully on board with the gang. I imagine that the man from Leicester MIND and William Bingley rang Dafydd as well as a few other people and had a lovely chat with them as soon as I left their offices.

 

After the failed attempt to imprison me, Dafydd told me during a phone call that if I dropped my complaint about him he’d get me a place at Liverpool Medical School and he even gave me the name of the Professor who would fix it all up. I declined the offer and told my solicitor Alwyn Jones, who was based in Bangor, that Dafydd had tried to bribe me and that I was going to start recording my phone calls. Alwyn told me that if I managed to record Dafydd ever saying any such thing again I should take the recording to the police. Dafydd never tried to bribe me over the telephone again.

Probably because Dafydd had been warned that I was recording the calls… But then so were MI5 and they protected Dafydd not me.

Alwyn’s then-wife worked as a lawyer for Gwynedd County Council. Her father was a policeman with the North Wales Police and was also a Freemason. Alwyn’s junior solicitor, Meleri Tudor, assisted on some of my cases. Meleri’s dad was a Nonconformist Minister and I think that Meleri’s brother was as well. Meleri’s sister was a Welsh language activist who had served time in Holloway.

 

Brown, who had been listening in to Dafydd’s phone call, subsequently wrote to Gwynedd Health Authority about the matter detailing exactly what he had heard Dafydd saying. Brown did not receive a reply. He wrote again a few years later and again did not receive a reply. Years later when I received copies of my medical records, Brown’s letters were in there. An unsigned handwritten note was attached to one of them, saying ‘what shall we do about Dr Brown’s letter?’ with the answer ‘Do not reply’.

Bribery, corruption, conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. Solution? ‘Do not reply’.

The ultimate solution was for someone to attempt to murder Brown.

Brown’s brother was also the subject of at least one very serious murder attempt and two others almost as worrying. Brown’s brother was a witness to Dafydd’s wrongdoing as well, because after Dafydd tried to bribe me and no-one would respond to my concerns about this, Brown’s brother rang Dafydd disguised as an investigative journalist, ‘Hugh Bailey’, interested in my case. Brown’s brother detailed a number of Dafydd’s crimes against other people of which we knew and then told Dafydd that he’d been given a written account of my experiences which included ‘this young woman wrongly arrested and illegally detained in a locked ward…this is all rather worrying Dr Jones’. Dafydd put on his best manners and said ‘now ewe know that I cannot discuss patients’ cases’. So I yelled down the phone ‘it’s OK Dafydd, I’m here and you have my permission to discuss the whole lot’. Dafydd just blew, he exploded – well he can only manage the charming bit for a few minutes, then it’s just the psychopath portion that takes over – and went into a very impressive rant, which began with ‘I spoke to you for nearly 40 minutes the other day’ [yes and I still didn’t accept the bribe] and ended with ‘I will not have my fon abused in this way, goodnight Mr Bailey’, whereupon Dafydd slammed the phone down so hard that he probably did it serious damage.

We just fell about laughing and provided Brown with the details of the exchange.

Then Hugh Bailey the Roving Reporter and I hired a car (because we didn’t own one) and went up to the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. We didn’t tell anyone that we were going to do this except of course Brown, but since beginning this blog I have received mountains of evidence that we were under surveillance by the security services and that our phones and houses were bugged. Our plan was to catch the liars and perjurers unawares, ask our questions and record and photograph them as they responded. Or not.

So imagine my surprise when as we pulled up outside Denbigh, Alun Davies appeared in his car and parked directly behind us. We got out and were greeted by a lady who had rushed out of the main entrance with a rictus grin on her face shrieking ‘which newspaper are you from?’ Brown’s brother breezily replied ‘Oh I’m freelance’. We asked for Dafydd and the lady told us that Dafydd wasn’t on the premises, they didn’t know when he next would be and there was no-one at all with whom we could discuss my complaint.

So we walked into the building with the lady pursuing us saying ‘please don’t photograph the patients, it’s a breach of their privacy’. We were quite happy to agree not to photograph the poor sods who had been unlawfully imprisoned. But I knew one of them anyway. As we walked down a corridor, we met Stephen Bagnall, the boy who had been in care in Wrexham with whom I had made friends when Dafydd illegally imprisoned me – and Stephen – in 1986/87 (see post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’). Stephen recognised me and came over. He told me that as soon as I had been released from Bryn Golau Ward, Dafydd had sectioned him for a year. So Stephen had at the time that Brown’s brother and I met him been in the ‘care’ of Dafydd for some seven or eight months. He looked terrible, absolutely dreadful. Stephen did not look the picture of health when I first met him in Dec 1986, but he had really gone downhill since then. His face was covered in bruises, he was skeletal and his hands were raw and bleeding because he couldn’t stop chewing them. Stephen was not chewing his hands when I met him in Dec 1986 in Bryn Golau. He was a young man who could barely read and write who had spent years sniffing glue and taking drugs but he had recently become involved with some ‘church people’ who knew Dafydd and for the first time in years, in Dec 1986 Stephen had not taken drugs for a few weeks.

So why was Stephen covered in bruises when he was being ‘cared for’ in Denbigh and who had done what to him which had driven him to chew his hands out of anxiety and terror?

A young man who had been in the Wrexham children’s homes. Illegally imprisoned in Denbigh.

How and when did Stephen die Dafydd? Is his body one of those concealed in the grounds of Denbigh? Or was Stephen found dead after he was ‘released, having been helped by the mental health services’?

Stephen Bagnall. Born about 1965, lived on the Queen’s Park Estate at Wrexham. Openly insulted by the staff of Bryn Golau Ward who told each other how much they hated him. When I challenged them about their dreadful attitude, they told me that Stephen was ‘lucky’ to have Dafydd because no-one else would waste their time with him.

When Dafydd was trying to bribe me on the phone he mentioned that he knew that Stephen was one of the people whom I had named as a witness to the wrongdoing in Denbigh.

As Brown’s brother and I drove away from Denbigh, Alun Davies tailed us all the way out of the grounds and down the lane for quite some distance.

On 18 Nov 1987 a fireball ripped through King’s Cross Station. Thirty-one people died. I was due to be passing through King’s Cross at the time of the fire but I was delayed so I missed it. The cause of the fire was never definitively identified. Just after I began this blog I was told that the King’s Cross Fire was supposed to have killed me.

 

Two other people who suffered as a result of the police moving in on Ollie Brooke in the spring of 1986 were my housemate Anne Vernon, who knew what was happening to me at the hands of the Top Doctors and who was killed in a car crash in April 1986 and Patient F, who had told a few too many people what he had found out was happening to the boys in Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor. In 1986 F was fitted up for the possession of Class A drugs, violently assaulted by a senior officer at the police station, then fitted up for arson, imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre where I believe that he heard a murder being committed and was unlawfully imprisoned in Denbigh by Dafydd for a year. F was subsequently fleeced of his property, money and child as a result of an unholy collusion between a few local predators, Gwynedd Social Services, a Gwynedd County Councillor, the North Wales Police, the Hergest Unit, Bethesda Surgery and the North Wales Housing Association. See previous posts.

 

As well as having Sir Peter Morrison’s needs to tend to, Dafydd and the gang were also providing services to George Thomas, Labour MP for Cardiff Central and then Cardiff West, 1945-83; Secretary of State for Wales, 1968-70; and Speaker of the House, 1976-83. George Thomas was the highest profile Methodist in the UK and was friends with Harold Wilson, Thatch and the Royals. In 1983 Thatch made him Viscount Tonypandy. In recent years it has been admitted that, as in the case of Peter Morrison, George Thomas’s sex offending was very, very widely known. Many people in the Labour Party loathed George Thomas, but he was one hell of a vote catcher in south Wales and what would have happened to the Labour Party if they had lost the support of south Wales?

The Top Doctors did very well out of George Thomas. In return for keeping quiet about his child molesting and STIs (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’), George Thomas diverted a massive proportion of the Welsh NHS budget to ensure that the Top Doctors got their flagship hospital/medical school in Cardiff (see post ‘The Great Stink’) and Thomas also robustly supported medical charidees. They loved old George down at the Welsh National School of Medicine and the wheels were oiled by Professor Kenneth Rawnsley, who from 1964 until 1985 held the Chair in Psychological Medicine at Cardiff and was responsible for providing the most enormous umbrella for Gwynne and Dafydd et al. Rawnsley never mentioned the Denbigh Dungeon full of the victims of the paedophile gang when the mental health services in north Wales were ‘inspected’ and approved as being of a suitable standard (see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’). Rawnsley held leading roles in the Royal College of Psychiatrists and other bodies, he assisted with the Mental Health Act which was written by Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass and which Dafydd repeatedly broke with impunity and throughout his career Rawnsley complacently reassured everyone that all was well with psychiatry in Wales. Rawnsley’s wife was the child psychiatrist Elinor Kapp, who was a founding member and keen supporter of one of George Thomas’s medical charidees. Tony Francis trained with Rawnsley, both as a medical student and a junior doctor.

In June 1983, another time bomb who had to be protected by the Top Docs and everyone else for decades was elected as the Labour MP for Caerphilly, one Ron Davies (see post ‘Cottaging At Castle Gate’).

 

So by the time that Richard Doll was supplying advice to the authors of that laughable journal article which finally saw the light of day in the ‘British Journal of Cancer’ in Dec 1990, the stakes were very high for Dafydd and the gang and the many people directly involved with them as well as the myriads who were feeding off them…

 

In south Wales, it wasn’t only people like the Windbag and his missus who had already made it as far as Westminster who would have gone tits up if Dafydd et al had been exposed. There were those on South Glamorgan County Council as well, some of whom, including Jane Hutt, Mark Drakeford and Julie Morgan, had big ideas for their own futures. The Rev Bob Morgan, Labour leader of South Glamorgan County Council, didn’t just have his own interests to consider when he became involved with George Thomas’s charidee work; the Rev Bob had his little daughter, Eluned, to think of as well! I mean there was that South Glamorgan County Council scholarship to foot the bill for Eluned’s school fees at Atlantic College, there was that friendship with the Windbags and goodness knows what else. Eluned was never going to be offered the job of the Baroness of Ely when she grew up if the Rev Bob squealed.

Rhodri The Ale Twat, the former housemate of the Windbag, was elected as the MP for Cardiff West himself at the June 1987 General Election. Jane Hutt is a long standing good friend of Julie Morgan and was a big pal of Rhodri’s.

 

After Professor Ollie was arrested and imprisoned, the cracks at St George’s Hospital Medical School needed papering over, so the Dean of St George’s head rolled and in 1988 a New Broom was appointed. The New Broom was the filthiest one that could possibly have been found, unless someone had actually appointed Dafydd himself as Dean of St George’s; it was Professor Sir William Asscher, a nephrologist from Cardiff University, who was a hero in north Wales for having secured them their rather inadequate kidney service. Asscher had been at the heart of the rot in south Wales for years and he was a real bastard as well, so obviously he was St George’s first choice as Dean. Asscher remained in post at St George’s until 1996, as bombs went off under him constantly.

After Asscher took the job at St George’s, he continued to keep a home in the posh bit of Glamorgan and he returned to live there full-time when he retired. So Asscher was in situ in 1999, when Jane Hutt was elected as AM for the Vale of Glamorgan. Hutt did stand as the Labour candidate for Cardiff North, a constituency with many Top Docs and other affluent professionals, in 1983 but lost to the Tory Gwilym Jones, who was just as much of a good friend to Dafydd and the gang as Jane et al. There was a happy ending for Cardiff North in 1999 when Julie Morgan was elected as their MP, succeeding Gwilym Jones. In 2011 Julie was elected as the AM for Cardiff North, although by that time they had dispensed with her services as their MP (see post ‘The Paedophiles’ Friends of Cardiff North’).

Jane Hutt had many reasons to never want to see Dafydd et al exposed, apart from her own political ambitions. Jane’s dad Michael Hutt was a pathologist who was educated at Eastbourne College and then Tommy’s. Michael Hutt worked in Uganda, 1962-70, then returned to the UK to become Chair of Geographical Pathology at Tommy’s, where he remained until he retired in 1983, at which point he became Emeritus Chair. Michael Hutt knew those crooked Home Office pathologists who were based at Tommy’s as well as at other institutions who systematically lied in cases of suspicious deaths in which the rich and famous were implicated, pathologists which included Iain West, Keith Mant and Keith Simpson. Michael Hutt would also have known Professor Austin Gresham, the Cambridge pathologist who worked for the Home Office when Douglas Hurd was Home Secretary. Gresham came from and went to school in Wrexham  (see post ‘Oh No! It’s The Pathetic Sharks’).

Adrian Bell, one of the lecturers at UCNW’s Plant Biology Dept who was a friend of Dr D.G.E. Wood, had previously worked as a forensic scientist in a service which, he used to admit to the students, was totally corrupt.

 

Michael Hutt served on the MRC’s Tropical Medicine Research Board, 1972-76.

Tommy’s was crawling with Top Doctors who were concealing the wrongdoing of Dafydd and his associates, including Dafydd’s mate the Sex Therapist Professor Jim Watson, who had been a Sex Therapist at St George’s before he set up shop at Tommy’s (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). Dr Death had trained and worked at Tommy’s before he was elected to the Commons. Dr Death was research registrar to William Sargant, a butcher so notorious that psychiatry today is doing all that it can do to forget that he ever existed. Sargant literally tortured his patients and carried out ridiculous and brutal experiments on them killing quite a few in the process. Sargant’s career in a previous branch of medicine had ground to a halt after his excesses had resulted in him landing in trouble; Sargant had a nervous breakdown and then was advised to do what every Top Doctor is advised when they have revealed themselves to be a major liability – to go into psychiatry. Sargant enjoyed himself a great deal with recreational chemicals, which are thought to have caused him to become rather madder than he was originally. See post ‘Dr Death’.

Although Tommy’s is the ultimate bastion of privilege and many of the Top Docs there are the London docs who are making a fortune from their Harley Street practices, there are a few who enjoy casting the illusion that they are Of The Common People, like Ed Miliband’s Uncle Harry. Uncle Harry was a leading light in the Socialist Medical Association (it later changed it’s name to the Socialist Health Association).

The Socialist Medical/Health Association provides a valuable network for Top Docs and many of the seriously guilty have been/are members. Dr John Dunwoody, Labour MP for Falmouth and Camborne, 1966-70, when West Country politicians were well aware of what Jeremy Thorpe was doing, was a member. After losing his seat, Dunwoody returned to medicine in London and among his various roles he served as Chairman of the Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster Area Health Authority, 1977–82, Chairman of the Family Planning Association, 1981–87 and Chairman of the Bloomsbury District Health Authority, 1982–90. From 1996 he was Vice-Chairman of the Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth Local Medical Committee. Dunwoody could not have held those roles without knowing a great deal about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and organised abuse.

John Dunwoody was married to Gwyneth Dunwoody, a leading light among Labour Party Wimmin for many years and the MP for Exeter, 1966-70 and Crewe and Nantwich, 1974-2008. Gwyneth’s parents were two high profile people in the Labour Party in an earlier generation and were mates with Nye Bevan. Dunwoody’s father was Morgan Phillips, the General Secretary of the Labour Party, from south Wales. Gwyneth concealed the Cheshire branch of Dafydd’s gang. Gwyneth and John’s daughter, the terrible Tamsin, was the Labour AM for Preseli Pembrokeshire, 2003-07. See previous posts for more information on the Dunwoodys.

Dr Julian Tudor Hart, a Communist Top Doc of the poshest origins who worked for 30 years as a GP in West Glamorgan, was President of the Socialist Health Association (see post ‘In Memoriam – Dr Julian Tudor Hart’).

Here’s Tudor Spart wearing his revolutionary cap:

Julian Tudor Hart 2007-01-19.JPG

 

In 1986, Dr Brian Gibbons joined Tudor Spart as a partner in the practice. Gibbons too was busy in the Socialist Health Association. Gibbons of course was the AM for Aberavon, 1999-2011 and served as the Welsh Gov’t Health and Social Services Minister, 2005-07, succeeding Jan Hutt in that role. Gibbons was every bit as toxic as Hutt and concealed the criminality and carnage in the NHS in north Wales. When no more excuses could be made for Gibbons, Lesley Griffiths took over as Health and Social Services Minister. Then Edwina Hart had a go at concealing and denying the wreckage – Edwina, being a female Labour politician in Wales had previously done the obligatory stint with Hutt’s ‘gender equality’ charidee, Chwarae Teg (see post ‘Don’t Mess With Daddy’) – and then Mark Drakeford took over as Health and Social Services Minister. Like Jane Hutt and Julie Morgan, Drakeford is a former social worker who served as a South Glamorgan County Councillor and concealed organised abuse. See previous posts.

Tudor Spart conducted epidemiological research with Richard Doll and Archie Cochrane. Richard Doll went to Westminster School and then Tommy’s, graduating in 1937. Doll graduated just a few years before Jane Hutt’s dad did. Tommy’s has a highly effective alumni network, Michael Hutt will have known Richard Doll. I don’t know who Jane Hutt’s mother’s family were, but Hutt’s biography states that her grandparents were Welsh speakers who were from north Wales. Michael Hutt’s biography states that he was born in Shrewsbury to Dorothy nee Peck and Arthur Cyril Hutt, an engineer. It is possible that they were Jane’s Welsh speaking grandparents from north Wales, but I think it more likely that they will have been her maternal grandparents. Despite all the guff talked about social mobility, there is not much of it about, particularly among Wimmin who Campaign on behalf of Wimmin. Someone of Hutt’s vintage who trained as a social worker will almost certainly have been descended from professional people on both sides of her family. Social work was a popular career choice for the not very bright rather drippy girls from middle class families, particularly medical families, in Jane’s day. Which suggests to me that whoever Jane’s Welsh speaking grandparents from north Wales were, they will have been the sort of people who were ignoring what the professional classes were doing to the plebs. No-one in Hutt’s extended family will have wanted Dafydd and the gang exposed. Furthermore, Dafydd’s gang were linked with a gang in Shropshire by the 1970s.

 

Richard Doll’s own father was a Top Doctor. Richard Doll was one of the significant figures in the Socialist Medical Association. The Socialist Medical/Health Association campaigned for the creation of the NHS and Nye Bevan is their hero. The Nye from south Wales who in reality lived it up in Chelsea with his wife Jennie Lee; both Nye and Jennie concealed the neglect and abuse of vulnerable people by the welfare services and because of this, the neglect and abuse of the very poorest was built into the NHS from the start, in contrast to the propaganda. Nye designed the NHS entirely for the benefit of the Top Doctors; he had to, because nearly all of them were completely opposed to the NHS (see previous posts). The Socialist Medical Association wasn’t, but they simply would not ever admit what was happening to some people at the hands of the NHS because the last thing that they wanted to do was give ammunition to their political opponents.

 

Richard Doll joined the Royal College of Physicians after the outbreak of WWII and served for much of the war as part of the RAMC on a hospital ship as a medical specialist. So Doll probably found out about all the Royalty/Lord Louis Mountbatten/sex/spies scandals that so many other Top Docs and other officers discovered when they served on ships in WWII (see post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’).

After the war, Doll returned to Tommy’s. In 1948 he joined a research team under Dr Francis Avery-Jones at the Central Middlesex Hospital run under the auspices of the statistical research unit of the MRC. Over a 21-year career in the unit, Doll rose to become its Director.

Francis Avery Jones was a Welsh Top Doctor – he was born in Carmarthenshire – who was educated at the Sir John Leman High School in Suffolk. He undertook his medical training at Bart’s Hospital Medical School – which is where Lady Juliet Bingley had worked as an almoner (social worker) and where her father had been a surgeon. Avery Jones was born in 1910, so he will have been of the vintage to have known both Lady Juliet and her father. Professor Linford Rees, who concealed the criminality of Dafydd et al in north Wales for many years, worked at Bart’s (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). Avery Jones worked at the Central Middlesex until 1974. He was also consultant to St Mark’s Hospital, 1948-78 – Lady Juliet also worked at St Mark’s – and to the Royal Navy, 1950-78. So Avery Jones knew about the shenanigans of Lord Mounbatten et al in the Royal Navy and Avery Jones will have known Admiral Sir Alec Bingley and that other surgeon in the Royal Navy, Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain of St George’s Hospital Medical School, a friend of Ollie Brooke. Chamberlain came from south Wales; his father had been Secretary to the Lord Mayor of Cardiff. When Chamberlain retired from the NHS in 2000, he was given a job as a lecturer at Swansea University, an institution virtually run by Rhodri Morgan’s friends and relatives. Just in time for the Waterhouse Report!

Avery Jones Chaired the King Edward VII Hospital Fund Development and Emergency Bed Service Committee – that’s the posh hospital for Royals, of which Lord Simon Glenarthur is/was Chairman. Simon Glenarthur was for years a Director of the MDU. Glenarthur also served as a junior Health Minister under Ken Clarke. It was Simon Glenarthur who was substantially responsible for the ‘tainted blood’ scandal, which resulted in thousands of NHS patients being given infected blood products which caused the death of many people. The Inquiry into the Tainted Blood Scandal has just opened. No-one needs bother with an Inquiry, it is a matter of record who was responsible. It was Dr Death, when he was a junior Health Minister, who knew that using the infected blood products was incredibly dangerous. Dr Death did tell people this but then he didn’t put a stop to it because he was far too busy wanting to be Foreign Secretary and hopefully PM. Simon Glenarthur then oversaw an even greater use of infected blood products on the orders of Thatcher. Glenarthur might not have known what the dangers were, but the Top Doctors did, all of them. Did the BMA campaign? Any  adverts explaining the dangers? No. Not a word. The BMA campaigned very, very loudly on a great many other matters, but there was not one word about thousands and thousands of NHS patients being given infected blood products. It was in the medical press, that’s how I found out about it, but it was nowhere else.

I’ll tell you who else knew about the Tainted Blood Scandal. Red Ken Livingstone. Because Red Ken used to be a medical lab technician and he led their union and Red Ken knew that the MRC lab which screened and treated blood from UK donors to ensure that it was infection free was closed down by Thatch and that infected blood was being purchased from the US for use by the NHS. But then Red Ken knew about Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring from his time at the GLC when all those kids in the care of London Borough Councils were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. See previous posts.

Here’s Ken at Trafalgar Square on an Anti-War Protest:

Ken Livingstone - Anti War Protest - Trafalgar Square ...

 

All the NHS unions knew about the Tainted Blood…

Simon Glenarthur was hanging around in the DoH whilst Jimmy Savile was appointed to the management team of Broadmoor.

 

Francis Avery Jones was on the DHSS’s Advisory Committee on Medical Records. Avery Jones knew that his colleagues were libelling patients as well as forging medical records, so presumably it was dear old Avery Jones who ensured that the decision as to whether to give patients access to their own records had to be made by the Top Doctors ‘with the best interests of the patient’ in mind. Which enabled Dafydd and the paedophiles to simply repeat for nearly 20 years that it was not in my best interests to have access to my records. Because if I did I would have found out that they had detailed their own criminality as well as their plans to frame me and have me imprisoned or banged up in a secure hospital.

Francis Avery Jones was a gastroenterologist. My post ‘Gwlad Y Menig Gwynion’ described how a copy of a 1988 application of mine for a research job in gastroenterology turned up in my medical records. The application was not for a job in Wales, so I wonder how the paedophiles’ friends got their paws on it.

Francis Avery Jones died in Chichester in 1998. Chichester is 28 miles away from Brighton, the scene of the firebomb attack in 1992 which killed five witnesses to the criminality of the paedophiles’ friends in north Wales. John Allen owned brothels in Brighton to which the kids in care from north Wales were trafficked.

The Central Middlesex Hospital borders Brent – the location of a paedophile ring as well as a hub of neglect and abuse in the mental health and children’s services (see post ‘Mary Turner – An Appreciation’). Red Ken was elected as the Labour MP for Brent East in June 1987. Three months after the publication of the Waterhouse Report, Ken became the 1st Mayor of London!

Paul Boateng was elected as the Labour MP for Brent South in June 1987. The Paul Boateng who was a solicitor for Birnberg & Co when they handled the first part of Mary Wynch’s litigation against Dafydd and Clwyd Health Authority. The Paul Boateng who’s wife Janet was a social worker in Lambeth when that Borough was sending kids in it’s care to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Janet doubled up as the Councillor who Chaired the Social Services Committee as well and was in that post when Tyra Henry was murdered while in the care of Lambeth Social Services. Paul and Janet’s son was convicted of rape, so Boateng has that in common with the man who is currently the favourite to become Wales’s next FM:

Mark Drakeford - National Assembly for Wales.jpg

 

Paul’s colleague Harriet Harman used to work at Brent Law Centre, as did Harriet’s husband Jack Dromey, a trade unionist who later became a Labour MP. Harriet’s dad John was a Harley Street Top Doctor. Dr John B. Harman studied at Tommy’s and later became a consultant there. John Harman served in the RAMC during WWII. When he retired in 1972, John Harman became President of the MDU. John Harman went to Oundle School, which has many famous alumni (see previous posts), including Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Sir Clough married into the Bloomsbury Set and he owned the Brondanw estate at Llanfrothen/Croesor, where throughout the middle years of the 20th century he hosted many members of the Bloomsbury Set during the summer. They were joined by a sizeable group of intellectuals, radicals and political activists and Clough’s aristocratic friends, including Bertrand Russell. Most of them knew about Dafydd and the gang but because it was usually only the locals who were having their lives ruined by Dafydd et al, no-one was that bothered. Dafydd proved useful on one occasion when the wife of one of Clough’s circle had a pregnancy which was inconvenient to her partner once he ran off with another woman. She was banged up in Denbigh and didn’t emerge until the mid-1980s, when she was housed near Betws-y-Coed, at a very safe distance from Croesor and well away from anyone who might have remembered what happened to her. See post ‘The Village’. Betrand Russell himself made good use of Top Doctors to declare members of his family mad when they accused him of being a wicked old bugger who was doing some very unsavoury things. See post ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’

Jonathan Miller, the Top Doctor, Opera Director, Polymath and Top Tosser, worked for Avery Jones when Miller was a junior Top Doc in the late 50s/early 60s. Miller’s dad Emmanuel Miller was one of the first child psychiatrists. Many of Jonathan’s vast network of BBC people, Top Docs, celebs, intellectuals and others assisted in concealing the wrongdoing of Dafydd and those associated with Dafydd. Jonathan himself was involved with a most helpful series of TV programmes entitled ‘Madness’ in 1991, which was another bit of good PR for the Top Doctors, just as the North Wales Police had begun an investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. One of my media friends who was hounded out of his job at the BBC in the early 1990s when his wife wanted to make a film about what was happening in north Wales worked with Jonathan’s son William Miller at the BBC in the 1980s. My friend used to maintain that William was ‘really fucked up’ as a result of living in Jonathan’s shadow. Years later William Miller gave media interviews in which he said pretty much the same thing himself. Despite being So Clever that even Robert Robinson would be impressed, Jonathan somehow missed the presence of Jimmy Savile at the BBC and as Savile mingled among the Top Doctors. Savile visited Bryn Estyn as well and one boy maintained that Savile witnessed him sexually assaulted by a group of men there. But Jonathan is far too important to have worried about minor details like that. For more info on Jonathan and the many friends of his who have many questions to answer, see previous posts eg. ‘The International Language Of Screaming’.

 

Richard Doll’s pal Francis Avery Jones didn’t die until 1998, so he was around until well into the Waterhouse Inquiry to assist Dafydd et al in their hour of need.

In 1950, Richard Doll, along with Sir Austin ‘Tony’ Bradford Hill, undertook with a study of lung cancer patients in 20 London hospitals and found that tobacco smoking was the common link. The findings were published in the BMJ in 1950 and Doll famously wrote that:

The risk of developing the disease increases in proportion to the amount smoked. It may be 50 times as great among those who smoke 25 or more cigarettes a day as among non-smokers.

I have not done a David Healy and revisited this study, so the work may be absolutely sound as far as I know. However I am struck by the very quick turnaround. A study undertaken, written up AND published all in the same year? Things might have been different in 1950 – indeed they were, Gwynne killed people with his lobotomies and the figures weren’t even recorded – but that still strikes me as surprising.

Four years later, in 1954 the British doctors study, a study of some 40 thousand doctors over 20 years, confirmed the suggestion, based on which the Gov’t issued advice, that smoking and lung cancer rates were related.

In 1955 Doll reported a case controlled study that firmly established the relationship between asbestos and lung cancer.

Let us take a look at Doll’s colleague Sir Austin. Son of Sir Leonard Erskine Hill, a ‘distinguished physiologist’, Hill was born in London and was educated at Chigwell School, Essex. Hill was associated with the medical statistician Major Greenwood and, to improve his statistical knowledge, Hill attended lectures by Karl Pearson. When Greenwood accepted a Chair at the newly formed London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Hill moved with him, becoming Professor of Medical Statistics in 1947.

Hill had a distinguished career in research and teaching but he is famous for two landmark studies. He was the statistician on the MRC Streptomycin in Tuberculosis Trials Committee, work which is generally accepted as the first randomised clinical trial (RCT). The second study was more precisely a series of studies, those with Richard Doll on smoking and lung cancer. Doll and Hill’s conclusions from their British Doctors study was severely criticised from 1957 onward, in published work and in academia by Sir Ronald Aylmer Fisher. 

Fisher was the statistician and geneticist who had pioneered many of the statistical techniques used by Doll and Hill. Fisher’s work in statistics led to him being described as “a genius who almost single-handedly created the foundations for modern statistical science” and “the single most important figure in 20th century statistics”. In genetics, Fisher used maths to combine Mendelian genetics and natural selection; this contributed to the revival of Darwinism in the early 20th-century modern synthesis revision of the theory of evolution. Fisher has been called “the greatest of Darwin’s successors”.

Fisher looks like he knew what he was doing:

Sir Ronald Fisher FRS
Youngronaldfisher2.JPG

 

However, Sir Austin Bradford Hill wore a bow tie like the Top Doctors did so he might have been more convincing:

Austin Bradford Hill
Austin Bradford Hill.jpg

 

Hill was made a fellow of the Royal Society in 1954 and perhaps surprisingly, Fisher was actually one of the proposers. The certificate of election read

Has, by the application of statistical methods, made valuable contributions to our knowledge of the incidence and aetiology of industrial diseases, of the effects of internal migration upon mortality rates, and of the natural and experimental epidemiology of various infections, for example of the risks of an attack of poliomyelitis following inoculation procedures and of the risk of congenital abnormalities being precipitated by maternal rubella in the pregnant woman. Since the war he has demonstrated in an exact and controlled field survey the association between cigarette smoking and the incidence of cancer of the lung, and has been the leader in the development in medicine of the precise experimental methods now used nationally and internationally in the evaluation of new therapeutic and prophylactic agents.

I have not yet had time to dig into why Fisher proposed the man who’s work he considered so flawed to the Royal Society. There was no doubt skulduggery involved. Hill certainly did OK for himself though.

In 1950–52 Hill was President of the Royal Statistical Society. On Hill’s death the medical statistician Peter Armitage wrote, “to anyone involved in medical statistics, epidemiology or public health, Bradford Hill was quite simply the world’s leading medical statistician.”

In 1965, Hill suggested several aspects of causality in medicine and biology, which have remained in use by epidemiologists to date.

What with Austin Bradford Hill being an all-round statistical genius and working with Richard Doll, one would have thought that Sir Austin would have noticed a few worrying things about Wales as he number crunched his way through medicine. Hill died in 1991 so he was alive and kicking when that laughable paper written by Dafydd’s mates on which Richard Doll advised was published in the ‘British Journal of Cancer’.

Surely Hill noticed that sample of three, even if it escaped Richard Doll’s attention?

In 1966 Richard Doll was elected to the Royal Society himself. The citation stated:

Doll is distinguished for his researches in epidemiology, and particularly the epidemiology of cancer where in the last 10 years he has played a prominent part in (a) elucidating the causes of lung cancer in industry (asbestos, nickel & coal tar workers) & more generally, in relation to cigarette smoking, and (b) in the investigation of leukaemia particularly in relation to radiation, where using the mortality of patients treated with radiotherapy he has reached a quantitative estimate of the leukaemogenic effects of such radiation. In clinical medicine he has made carefully controlled trials of treatments for gastric ulcer. He has been awarded the United Nations prize for outstanding research into the causes & control of cancer & the Bisset Hawkins medal of the Royal College of Physicians for his contributions to preventive medicine.

Dafydd’s friends. A sample of three. One of whom did not have the disease which was under investigation.

In 1969 Sir Richard Doll moved to Oxford University, as the Regius Professor of Medicine. Initially, epidemiology was held in low regard, but in his time at Oxford Sir Richard helped reverse this.

More than 20 years later: A sample of three. Well two actually, because one person in the sample of three had a different condition.

Richard Doll was the primary agent behind the creation of Green College, which was founded in 1979. Doll was appointed the first Warden of Green College, from where he retired in 1983. Doll was succeeded as Warden of Green College by Dafydd’s mate, the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Lord John Walton. Walton was a Top Doctor who pretty much ran both Noewcastle-upon-Tyne University and the city itself, throughout the decades when a trafficking ring which sent kids in care and staff to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales operated in the north east of England. John Walton kept Dafydd and his associates out of trouble throughout his career, particularly in Walton’s capacity as President of the BMA, 1980-82; President of the GMC, 1982-89 (as the very serious complaints about Dafydd’s criminality came in by the sackful but were all ignored); and President of the Royal Society of Medicine, 1984-86. Walton received a peerage in 1989. What can someone have been so grateful to him for?

In 1992 Walton became a member of Parliament’s Science and Technology Committee, leaving in 1996, returning in 1997 and leaving again in 2001. Walton tended to be on that Committee every time that there was a bit of high drama with Dafydd and the gang then. From 1993-94, Walton was Chair of the Medical Ethics Committee. He was Secretary of the Rare Diseases Group from 2009 until his death. Walton was a member of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. He was Patron of The Little Foundation, Honorary Life President of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, Vice President of Parkinson’s UK and Honorary Chairman of the United Kingdom Medical Students’ Association (UKMSA).

Walton died in 2016. He remained silent throughout every investigation and inquiry relating to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. He said not a word about the scandals involving organised abuse in other parts of the UK, not even about the Sunderland and Cleveland Scandals which happened just down the road from his turf. He was sitting in the Lords when that joke of a paper based on the sample of three as advised by Richard Doll was touted in the media as being the work of ground-breakers leading the field.

John Walton scowled his way throughout it all:

The Lord Walton of Detchant Kt

Richard Doll also helped found the National Blood Service and was key in avoiding a system of paying donors for their blood, as had been adopted in the US. Yet Doll was one of the mass of Top Doctors who remained silent when Thatch closed down the MRC lab and ordered the purchase of infected blood from the US…

Doll continued work at the Imperial Cancer Research Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, working as part of the Clinical Trial Service Unit, notably including a study undertaken with Sir Richard Peto, in which it was estimated that tobacco, along with infections and diet, caused between them three quarters of all cancers, which was the basis of much of the WHO’s conclusions on environmental pollution and cancer.

Sir Richard Peto is Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology at Oxford University. He attended Taunton’s School in Southampton and subsequently studied the Natural Sciences Tripos at Queen’s College, Cambridge, followed by a Masters in Statistics at Imperial College.

Peto’s career included collaborations with Richard Doll which began at the MRC Statistical Research Unit in London. Peto set up the Clinical Trial Service Unit (CTSU) in Oxford in 1975 and is currently Co-director. Peto’s paradox is named after him. That particular paradox isn’t half such a paradox as all these world leading medical statisticians who missed a trafficking gang publishing utter rubbish after being advised by Richard Doll.

Peto was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1989 for his contributions to the development of meta-analysis. He is a leading expert on deaths related to tobacco use. Richard Peto was knighted for his services to epidemiology and to cancer prevention in 1999, just before the Waterhouse Report was published. Peto received an honorary Doctor of Medical Sciences degree from Yale University in 2011.

Richard’s brother Julian Peto, with whom he has published work in mathematical statistics (e.g. on the logrank test), is also a distinguished epidemiologist. The Peto family run a Thai restaurant in the Covered Market, Oxford, of whose parent company Richard Peto is a Director.

 

When he was young, Richard Doll considered himself a socialist, but by the 2005 General Election he was a supporter of the Lib Dems.

Throughout his entire career, like Air Austin Bradford Hill, Sir Richard Doll remained schtum throughout the investigations and inquiries into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, in spite of his links with some of those at the scene of the crime. Sir Richard didn’t die until 2005, so he had plenty of opportunities to ask a few salient questions.

After Richard Doll’s death, some controversy arose over aspects of his research funding when his papers, held at the Wellcome Library, indicated that for many years he had received consultancy payments from chemical companies whose products he was to defend in court. These include US$1,500 per day consultancy fee from Monsanto Company for a relationship which began in 1976 and continued until 2002. During this period Doll wrote to a Royal Commission in Australia investigating whether the Monsanto-produced herbicide Agent Orange, which was used during the Vietnam War, was carcinogenic, claiming that there was no evidence that it caused cancer.

Richard Doll received £15,000 from the Chemical Manufactures Association, Dow Chemicals and ICI for a review published in 1988 that concluded that workplace exposure to vinyl chloride did not increase the chance of contracting cancer, with the exception of angiosarcoma of the liver, contradicting two previous reviews by the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer. Some donations, including a £50,000 gift from asbestos company Turner and Newall, were given in public ceremony to Green College, Oxford, but most fees and payments remained undisclosed to the public, Oxford University and colleagues until Doll’s death.

Doll’s defenders point out that his connections to industry were widely known by those in the field, that he did his work before formal disclosure of commercial interests became commonplace and that on occasion, he came to conclusions that were unpalatable to the companies who consulted him. His own view, as reported by Richard Peto, was that it was necessary to co-operate with companies for access to data which could prove their products to be dangerous.

Doll co-operated with a murdering trafficking gang as well Peto, but it didn’t prove that their products were dangerous. It made them a laughing stock when someone pointed out that sample of three, but they all merrily continued on their way; one of them spent the next two decades as the Stats Guru of the School of Psychology at Bangor University and another one led NWORTH, the Clinical Trials Unit at Bangor University. They now run a consultancy together. See post ‘They Think It’s All Over – It Is Now’.

Some controversy arose over the fact that Doll did not publish a paper on ‘A tentative estimate of the leukaemogenic effects of test thermonuclear explosions’ in the Journal of Radiation Protection in 1955 which stated that ‘there is no threshold [radiation] dose below which no effect is produced’ in humans. He withdrew it on advice from the Sir Harold Himswoth, Secretary of the MRC, who in turn was advised by the Atomic Energy Authority not to publish because it would be contrary to their interests. It was only published in 1996 when this kind of view was more acceptable view to the Nuclear Industry.

Before Dafydd began his degree in medicine at Liverpool University, he worked at Windscale. Dafydd worked there just before the nuclear accident at Windscale in 1957, which involved a cover-up on the part of Macmillan’s Gov’t. Dafydd knew about much wrongdoing at Windscale and used it to his advantage for a very long time. See post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’. It is no coincidence that every time British Gov’ts have tried to reign the Top Docs in, they have appointed nuclear physicists to do this eg. Sir Alec Merrison and Lord Brian Flowers (see previous posts). Nuclear physicists have told as many lies to the nation as Top Docs have and are just about the only professional group who can get the Top Docs by the knackers; it will have helped that Dafydd was involved with whatever was going on at Windscale in the 1950s.

 

So what of Archie Cochrane, who worked with Doll et al? I discussed Archie Cochrane in my post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ Archie Cochrane was a Scottish Top Doctor who was famous for advocating the use of randomized control trials (RCTs) to make medicine more effective and efficient. His advocacy of RCTs eventually led to the development of the Cochrane Library database of systematic reviews, the establishment of the UK Cochrane Centre in Oxford and the international Cochrane Collaboration. Archie Cochrane is known as one of the fathers of modern clinical epidemiology and evidence-based medicine and is considered to be the originator of the idea of evidence-based medicine in the current era.

Cochrane was born near Galashiels, Scotland. He attended Uppingham School and then studied at King’s College, Cambridge. Cochrane completed his medical training in 1938 at UCH and UCL. 

During the Spanish Civil War, Cochrane served as a member of a British Ambulance Unit within the Spanish Medical Aid Committee. In WWII he joined the British Army and was captured during the Battle of Crete and subsequently worked as a Medical Officer at Salonika (Greece) and Hildburghausen, Elsterhorst and Wittenberg an der Elbe (Germany) PoW camps. His experience in the camp led him to believe that much of medicine did not have sufficient evidence to justify its use.

Cochrane said, ‘I knew that there was no real evidence that anything we had to offer had any effect on tuberculosis, and I was afraid that I shortened the lives of some of my friends by unnecessary intervention.’ As a result, he spent his career urging the medical community to adopt the scientific method.

After WWII Cochrane studied for a Diploma in Public Health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and and spent a year at the Henry Phipps Institute in Philadelphia on a Rockefeller Fellowship.

Cochrane then joined the MRC’s Pneumoconiosis Unit at Llandough Hospital, a part of the Welsh National School of Medicine, now Cardiff University School of Medicine, in 1948. Here Cochrane began a series of studies on the health of the population of Rhonda Fach, studies which pioneered the use of RCTs.

Dafydd’s mate Kenneth Rawnsley, who began his career working with the maddest of the mad Top Doctors at the Maudsley and who also worked with Dafydd’s mad mates at Manchester, worked with Archie Cochrane on Cochrane’s community studies in south Wales. Rawnsley seemed to ignore everything that Cochrane was teaching about RCTs and the scientific method, but that didn’t stop Rawnsley ending up as Head of the MRC Unit in south Wales, under the Director, the crazed Sir Aubrey Lewis from the Maudsley.

For a detailed account of Rawnsley and the many other quite mad and highly abusive Top Doctors who were mates with and worked with Dafydd and who subsequently circulated around London, Manchester and south Wales, spinning myths about their own ‘excellence’ while Dafydd did whatever he wanted in north Wales, see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ Archie Cochrane may have pursued scientific rigour but he most definitely did not ensure that those with whom he worked did.

Cardiff University has released an online video of the Rhondda Fach studies. The video shows some archive footage of the community study. Cochrane describes what he was looking for in the surveys. Somehow Cochrane missed the obvious…

In 1960 Cochrane was appointed Professor of Tuberculosis and Chest Diseases at the Welsh National School of Medicine and nine years later became Director of the new MRC’s Epidemiology Research Unit at 4 Richmond Road, Cardiff. His groundbreaking paper on validation of medical screening procedures, published jointly with fellow epidemiologist Walter W. Holland in 1971, became a classic in the field.

Cochrane’s 1971 Rock Carling Fellowship monograph Effectiveness and Efficiency: Random Reflections on Health Services, first published in 1972 by the Nuffield Provincial Hospitals Trust — now known as the Nuffield Trust, was very influential. To quote from the book’s summary :

“An investigation into the workings of the clinical sector of the NHS strongly suggests that the simplest explanation of the findings is that this sector is subject to severe inflation with the output rising much less than would be expected from the input”. According to a review in the British Medical Journal, “the hero of the book is the randomized control trial, and the villains are the clinicians in the “care” part of the NHS who either fail to carry out such trials or succeed in ignoring the results if they do not fit in with their own preconceived ideas”.

Maintaining this challenge to the medical care system as Cochrane saw it, in 1978, with colleagues, he published a study of 18 developed countries in which he made the following observations: “the indices of health care are not negatively associated with mortality, and there is a marked positive association between the prevalence of doctors and mortality in the younger age groups. No explanation of this doctor anomaly has so far been found. Gross national product per head is the principal variable which shows a consistently strong negative association with mortality.” 

So Cochrane knew that somehow the Top Doctors were killing people, but he didn’t speculate further.

This work was selected for inclusion in a compendium of influential papers, from historically important epidemiologists, published by the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO/WHO) in 1988.

Cochrane promoted the randomised trial and is a co-author with Professor Peter Elwood on a report on the first randomised trial of aspirin in the prevention of vascular disease. He also promoted the cohort study and was a key adviser in a highly detailed cohort study: the Caerphilly Heart Disease Study, which was based on a representative population sample of 2,375 middle-aged men, with a response rate of 89%.

Archie died in 1988, the year that the ridiculous paper written by Dafydd’s mates was submitted to the ‘British Journal of Cancer’.

Like so many others with whom he worked, Archie was another Great Man and Founding Father who knew about Dafydd and the gang and the associated serious criminality. Archie knew that by the mid-1980s the cancer caused by that gang had spread throughout the whole of the UK medical establishment and that there was no Top Doctor or barely any lawyers or politicians who would take them on.

How could so many people have been so weak and so stupid?

For his “gallant and distinguished” services in PoW camps, Archie was awarded an MBE; for his contributions to epidemiology he was later awarded the CBE. If Archie had raised even one concern about a gang of paedophiles he’d have received neither.

One Man’s Medicine: An Autobiography of Professor Archie Cochrane was published in 1989 and co-authored by Max Blythe. The book was out of print for a number of years but a paperback edition was published by Cardiff University in April 2009 to celebrate the centenary of Cochrane’s birth. The Archie Cochrane Archive is held at the Archie Cochrane Library, Cardiff University.

Oh for God’s sake when Dafydd snuffs it why not give him a state funeral and then erect a statue of him in Westminster?

 

Just to recap on a few things that have been detailed in previous posts which were happening between Dafydd’s pals beginning their ludicrous ‘research’ on bracken, buttermilk and gastric cancer and it being published in the ‘British Journal of Cancer’.

During those years, I and three other witnesses to the criminality in north Wales were systematically hounded out of our careers. Two of those people, my best friend from school and her husband, literally found themselves under attack by gangsters (see post ‘The Turn Of The Screw’).

When the bracken/gastric cancer paper was being planned, I had just begun a career in cancer research myself. I working in the Cancer Research Campaign team at the University of Surrey for Professor Vincent Marks who was the brother of Dr John Marks, the President of the BMA. At the time, the BMA were providing Tony Francis and the gang in north Wales with legal advice with regard to having me charged and imprisoned, although the BMA knew about the trafficking gang in north Wales and knew that Francis et al had no evidence for their very serious allegations against me. The BMA were in an all out war with Ken Clarke at the DoH at the time. No-one won because the whole lot of them were concealing Dafydd et al and none of them would use the evidence that I and my friends had to arrest and charge Dafydd and his associates.

While I was working at Surrey, Dr Peter Macguire, a former psychiatrist colleague of Tony Francis’s, suddenly decided that he was going to become a cancer researcher. Macguire and some colleagues extracted funding from the Cancer Research Campaign and the ICRF (Richard Doll worked with the ICRF) and perpetrated a research fraud which was exposed in 1990 and resulted in the suicide of one of the members of their team, Prof Tim McElwain (see post ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’). None of this held the careers of the other people involved in the fraud back, they went on to become high profile names in cancer research, except for Clair Chilvers, the lead author of the dodgy paper, who metamorphosed into a mental health researcher and also became Chair of an NHS Trust (see post ‘Apocalypse Now’).

Those we know and love had another close shave soon after Ollie was released from prison in May 1987. Jeffery Archer, one of Sir Peter Morrison’s colleagues in Thatcher’s Gov’t, who had found himself the centre of a tabloid expose maintaining that he had paid a prostitute for sex, sued the Star for libel. The libel trial was in July 1987. Jeffrey and Lady Mary perjured themselves during the trial, but it paid off and they won the case. That libel trial took place while Dafydd’s gang were in the process of trying to stitch me up and imprison me. Jeffrey and Mary were of course later exposed as having lied in their evidence and Jeffrey was subsequently charged and jailed in 2001. Monica, the prostitute involved in the case, was due to give evidence at Tuppence’s trial but was most conveniently killed in a car crash shortly before the trial opened. Lady Mary was never charged with perjury herself, she continued running Addenbrooke’s Hospital and swathes of the Cambridgeshire NHS. For the links between Tuppence, Lady Mary and Dafydd and his associates, see post ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’.

I mentioned that by 1987, the police were beginning to take an interest in Frank Beck and Greville Janner in Leicestershire. Someone who knew all about Dafydd and the gang as well as most of the rest of the Westminster Paedophile Ring was the barrister George Carman QC, who acted for Jeremy Thorpe and was retained by Greville Janner and Jimmy Savile. Carman was a violent alcoholic who was also corrupt and hung around with gangsters, bent coppers and sex workers. Carman was based in Manchester throughout the 1960s and 70s and lived in Cheshire. He made his name when he successfully defended Jeremy Thorpe in 1979 and at that point he moved to London. However by the early 1980s Carman was fed up with the UK and was about to take up a judicial appointment in Hong Kong. He changed his mind at the last minute when he was staying in Leicester in 1981 as a result of defending a Top Doctor, Leonard Arthur, who was on trial for murdering a baby with Down’s syndrome after an Angel blew the whistle. Carman never explained what it was that happened during his weeks in Leicester which caused him to stay in the UK, but over the following years Carman’s reputation grew and grew, he became very rich as well as the best known libel barrister in the UK. When Carman was dying, he was visited in person on a number of occasions by Professor Gordon McVie, who persuaded Carman to part with dosh for the Cancer Research Campaign. McVie will have known even more than I did about the large scale research fraud in cancer research. George Carman was such a heavy drinker that he had his own Top Doc on call who was known to have set up drips for him in Court after he had collapsed. For the last part of his life, Carman lived in Wimbledon. He was a neighbour of Geoffrey Chamberlain and other Top Docs at St George’s. See previous posts for more information on George Carman.

Despite having George Carman on tap, people in Leicester must have got a little jumpy because reinforcements were called in. A young lawyer, Keith Vaz, who was eager to help, relocated to Leicester and was subsequently elected as the Labour MP for Leicester East at the 1987 General Election! Keith had previously been the senior solicitor for Islington Borough Council, where a paedophile ring with links to north Wales operated and before that, Keith had been a solicitor for Richmond-upon-Thames Council – where a paedophile ring with links to north Wales had operated! Keith didn’t trudge up to Leicester all alone. Keith took his mum with him who subsequently sat on Leicester City Council. When Frank Beck was jailed in 1991 for hundreds of sexual assaults on kids in care over a period of years, Leicester City Council were accused of being complicit with Beck’s crimes. As were the police and the Social Services. I know for a fact that the Top Doctors and Leicester University were fully complicit as well. See previous posts.

George Carman had a pupil barrister who later became famous. A man called Tony Blair. Miranda was elected as MP for Sedgefield in Co Durham – on Lord John Walton’s manor – in 1983. Cherie continued to work in Carman’s chambers until 1988. When George Carman held his garden parties at Wimbledon years later, Miranda and Cherie were kind enough to drop in, although Miranda was PM by then and Cherie was ‘juggling’, as she explained when she was caught out doing those crooked property deals with Carole Caplin’s boyfriend.

When that nonsense about bracken and buttermilk was being penned by Dafydd’s mates, Miranda was part of the Windbag’s Shadow Energy team along with Rhodri The Real Ale Twat. It was when Miranda was in that team that his ‘talents’ were spotted and from then on the sky was the limit for Miranda. Who was one of the Minister’s whom Miranda shadowed in Energy? Sir Peter Morrison…

Miranda touched my own life in 2005 when the brother-in-law of Miranda’s No 10 policy adviser John McTernan stole my computer. See previous posts.

 

As for the cauldron in south Wales, with its mixture of thick opportunistic politicians and privileged abusive Top Doctors boiling away, all claiming to be working on behalf of the Oppressed while they stood by and watched the Oppressed slaughtered, there are two more characters whom I mentioned in my post ‘Don’t Mess With Daddy’ to whom I shall briefly return here: Dr Hywel Francis, who was Labour MP for Aberavon, 2001-15, before he handed the seat over to the Windbag’s son and Hywel’s dad Dai.

I mentioned previously how Hywel Francis, an academic who was a student at, and who was then was employed as, an academic at Swansea University, is a man who prides himself on he and his dad’s Communist Party pasts and waxes lyrical about miners and trade unionism and hard labour but who writes columns for ‘The Guardian’ and ingratiates himself to the Top Doctors. The secret of Hywel’s paradoxes lies in his dad’s biography.

Dai Francis (1911–1981) was a Welsh trade unionist, best remembered for his leadership of the South Wales NUM during the 1970s. Dai was a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards, as are Hywel and many of Dafydd’s mates. Dai Francis was born near Neath. He became the first officer of the South Wales Miners’ Union in 1959 and in 1963 became its General Secretary. In 1974 Dai became the first Chairman of the Wales TUC. So although Dai got much kudos from being a miners’ leader when the miners did battle with Ted Heath and brought him down, Dai’s role as Chairman of the Wales TUC will have given him the most powerful muscle of all – his knowledge of what the NHS/social care trade unions were concealing. Dafydd and the associated gangs…

Dai also knew that the beginnings of the NHS were rather more sordid than we are told, because he was involved with the miners’ welfare associations before the NHS came into being. Dai will have known about Nye and Jenny buying off the Top Docs while Nye and Jenny shopped at Harrods. They didn’t hang around south Wales for long.

Dai retired in 1976 and in the same year unsuccessfully challenged Carlo in the election for Chancellor of the University of Wales. I don’t know who ensured that Carlo won, but if Dai had became Chancellor, his main responsibility of course would have been to make sure that the whole of UCNW continued to double up as a major branch of Dafydd’s trafficking gang. Of course, by 1976, Sir Peter Morrison had become MP for Chester and what with Sir Peter’s sister Dame Mary being Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to Carlo’s mum, someone probably thought that it was less risky to have Carlo overseeing UCNW than a Communist with the dirt on everyone who also had an ambitious son.

The paedophiles’ friends being what they are, they never stop scrapping among themselves. There was so much infighting at UCNW that in 1979, Dafydd Wigley, then the Plaid MP for Caernarfon who’s constituency office was just around the corner from Paedophilia HQ at the offices of Gwynedd County Council, asked Shirley Williams, in her capacity as Secretary of State for Education in Jim Callaghan’s Gov’t, to hold an Inquiry into the management of UCNW by the then Principal, Sir Charles Evans, Top Doctor and 1953 Everest Hero. There was no Inquiry which was hardly surprising, because everyone involved knew that the havoc prevailing was because the College had been taken over by a trafficking gang and furthermore Carlo was the Chancellor. Why Dafydd Wigley even pretended that he wanted an Inquiry I do not know, because if that gang had ever been exposed, Wigley would have lost his seat which was one of the safest in the country, what with just about every professional person in Gwynedd colluding with that gang. 1979 was the year in which Mary Wynch was unlawfully imprisoned by Dafydd; Mary worked as a Secretary in the Dept of Agriculture in UCNW. Was that something to do with the request for an Inquiry? If an Inquiry had have happened, the results of any Inquiry would only have shouldered the responsibility for the chaos onto the least guilty party…

 

While Dafydd’s pals at UCNW were writing their paper for the ‘British Journal of Cancer Research’, Alison Taylor wrote to Carlo and told him that children in care in north Wales were being abused. Carlo’s office wrote back to Alison and said that Carlo couldn’t get involved. Which is a little odd in that many of the staff at UCNW were facilitating the gang which abused the kids and furthermore Carlo has a well-established reputation for getting involved in all sorts of things. Including getting involved in lending money and supplying accommodation to Bishops who have been caught sexually abusing young people.

Gwynedd County Council had sacked Alison in Dec 1987 so Carlo probably thought that Lucille had found the best way of dealing with it. Now there just needed to be a Final Solution for my friends and I…

 

Hywel Francis’s claim to fame is that he is the first in his family for five generations not to go down the mines. Of course you didn’t Hywel, your dad had all the shit on the Top Doctors, George Thomas and much more besides. I’m only surprised that you weren’t given a peerage as soon as you hit 21 yrs old.

 

When I googled Dai Francis, I got lots and lots of results for another Dai Francis. One of the Black and White Minstrels no less.

David Healy arrived in north Wales shortly after the ‘British Journal of Cancer’ published the idiocy of Dafydd’s mates. So finally north Wales had a Top Doctor who could count and add up.

There is one Top Doctor in north Wales who is pretty much hated by nearly all the other Top Doctors and there have been a number of serious attempts to stop him practising. It is not Dafydd. It is David Healy.

 

How does medicine ever come back from this?

 

 

 

Mỹ Lai Massacre

South Vietnamese women and children in Mỹ Lai before being killed in the massacre, 16 March 1968. According to court testimony, they were killed seconds after the photo was taken. The woman on the right is adjusting her blouse buttons following a sexual assault that happened before the massacre.

An unidentified man and child who were killed on a road.
‘The villagers, who were getting ready for a market day, at first did not panic or run away, and they were herded into the hamlet’s commons. Harry Stanley, a machine gunner from Charlie Company, said during the US Army Criminal Investigation Division inquiry that the killings started without warning. He first observed a member of 1st Platoon strike a Vietnamese man with a bayonet. Then, the same trooper pushed another villager into a well and threw a grenade in the well. Next, he saw fifteen or twenty people, mainly women and children, kneeling around a temple with burning incense. They were praying and crying. They were all killed by shots in the head.’
‘A large group of approximately 70–80 villagers was rounded up by 1st Platoon in Xom Lang and led to an irrigation ditch east of the settlement. All detainees were pushed into the ditch and then killed after repeated orders issued by Lieutenant Calley, who was also shooting. PFC Paul Meadlo testified that he expended several M16 magazines. He recollected that women were allegedly saying “No VC” and were trying to shield their children. He remembered that he was shooting into women with babies in their hands since he was convinced at that time that they were all booby-trapped with grenades and were poised to attack. On another occasion during the security sweep of My Lai, Meadlo again fired into civilians side-by-side with Lieutenant Calley.’

Don’t Mess With Daddy

Readers will know from my post ‘Dr Victoria Winckler Threatens To Sue Dr Sally Baker’ that Victoria Winkler, the Director of the Bevan Foundation, a ‘social justice organisation’, has recently sent me a highly irregular letter from her solicitors, Harding Evans, which alleges that I have made a number of allegations about a number of people in this blog which I have not in fact made. Someone had also unlawfully accessed a database which contained the personal information of two friends of mine in order to find a contact address for me which they then gave to Harding Evans.

A number of readers left comments after that post with information and advice and a few more people have e mailed me privately with further information and advice. People also supplied a bit of background on the Bevan Foundation, which was established in 2001 by a number of Labour politicians, in the immediate aftermath of the Waterhouse Report. Since then, there has been much internal scrapping at the Bevan Foundation with little things hitting each other and resignations. Victoria however has been CEO since 2002. The Bevan Foundation is £66k in debt.

Many people have passed through the Bevan Foundation on their travels – including the Usual Suspects – far too many to cover in detail on this blog, but I did think that it would be worth blogging further about a few of the more high profile people.

 

A reader helpfully sent me a link to information provided by the Bevan Foundation about themselves. It states that ‘The Bevan Foundation develops ideas that change Wales and improve people’s lives‘ and that ‘the inaugural Bevan Prize for Health and Well-being‘ was awarded ‘in Westminster to celebrate one individual and organisation who have made an outstanding contribution to health and well-being in their field in the past year (1st January 2012-31st December 2012). The presentation event, held in the Attlee Room at Portcullis House, was hosted by Dr Hywel Francis MP, attracted around 90 guests from across England and Wales, and included nominees, nominators, MPs, peers and other interested parties. Prizes were awarded by Baroness Ilora Finlay of Llandaff, Christina McAnea, Head of Health at UNISON and Jaselle Williams, Trustee of the Bevan Foundation and Secretary of the Aneurin Bevan Society, representing the judges…Our Director is Dr Victoria Winckler, who has more than 30 years experience in public policy in the public, private and third sectors. She is supported by a small staff team.’

Dr Hywel Francis was one of the founders of the Bevan Foundation who later resigned among the hissy fitting. Hywel Francis was the Labour MP for  Aberavon, 2001-15. He was preceded in the seat by Lord John Morris, corrupt barrister; Secretary of State for Wales, 1974-79, under Harold Wilson and then Jim Callaghan; and Attorney General for England and Wales, as well as for N Ireland, 1997-99, under Miranda. John Morris was one of those who provided much protection for Dafydd and his gang as well as old favourites like George Thomas (see previous posts).

Hywel Francis was succeeded as MP for Aberavon by the Windbag’s son, who is so famously committed to Wales that he grew up in London, went to Queen’s College, Cambridge University and then to the College of Europe in Bruges; lived in Brussels, Russia, Sierra Leone, Geneva and then London again. Windbag junior describes himself as coming from a ‘Labour and Trade Union family’. Well what with having two parents in the European Parliament and the House of Lords and being married to the Prime Minister of Denmark, how else would he describe himself?

Hywel Francis studied at what is now Swansea University, an institution pretty much run by Rhodri Morgan’s friends and relations. Highlights of Hywel’s political career included a stint as SPAD for Paul Murphy, Secretary of State for Wales, who in that capacity took receipt of the Waterhouse Report in 2000. Murphy stated that he was delighted that the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal had now been extensively and transparently investigated, that there was no VIP paedophile ring in north Wales concealed by those in High Places and would everybody now please shut up about it all, even though nothing very much happened to anyone anyway.

Paul Murphy is someone who knows a great deal about the paedophile ring which never existed, having succeeded Leo Abse as Labour MP for Torfaen. Leo Abse was a crooked and very unpleasant lawyer who concealed the sex offences of George Thomas and Dafydd’s gang in north Wales (see previous posts); Paul Murphy was a Councillor in Torfaen when old Abse was threatening and paying off complainants. Paul Murphy also served as Secretary of State for N Ireland, 2002-05, so he knows all about the Kincora Boys’ Home and the elite paedophile ring with links to the rings in north Wales and other places on mainland Britain which operated at Kincora. Murphy was Secretary of State for Wales, 1999-02 and 2008-09 and Secretary of State for N Ireland, 2002-05. Just to reassure readers that trusted hands are on the tiller, Murphy was Chairperson of the Intelligence and Security Committee, 2005-08. I can only hope that the spies didn’t actually tell him what they were getting up to, the information might well have been misused. Particularly as Murphy’s tenure straddled both Miranda’s and Gordon’s time as PM.

Paul Murphy is a devout Roman Catholic who has never married or been blessed with children.

Hywel Francis’s dad was Dai Francis, who led the South Wales NUM throughout the years of industrial unrest in the 1970s. Like his dad, Hywel was a member of the Communist Party of Great Britain. So Hywel and Dai knew all those other members of the CP of GB who knew about George Thomas, Dafydd’s gang etc, including those English radicals/intellectuals who spent their summers in Llanfrothen/Croesor and had the best gen of all re Dafydd and Gwynne the lobotomist, including the gen on Bertrand Russell. See previous posts, including ‘The Village’.

Hywel Francis worked at University of Wales Swansea (now Swansea University) as a Professor in Adult Continuing Education prior to being elected to the Commons in 2001. At the University of Wales, he founded the South Wales Miners’ Library. Francis also was the chair of the Wales Congress in Support of Mining Communities. He is a Welsh speaker and has been a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards, along with so many mates of Dafydd’s, since 1986. Hywel Francis is Honorary Parliamentary Patron of the adult learners’ body, NIACE (National Institute of Adult Continuing Education). He is a Trustee of the Paul Robeson Trust and the President of the South Wales Miners’ Museum.

Hywel Francis co-authored ‘The Fed: A History of the South Wales Miners in the Twentieth Century’ (1980) with Dai Smith. Dai is the dad of Owen ‘Oily’ Smith, Labour MP for Pontypridd. Before Oily was elected to the Commons, he worked for the BBC as a journo, while his dad Dai had a senior role at the BBC. Then Oily worked as a SPAD for Paul Murphy and after that as a lobbyist/senior marketing manager for Pfizer. Dai Smith has held a number of academic posts, including Chairs at Cardiff and Swansea Universities and he was PVC at the University of Glamorgan.

 

Hywel Francis really maxes out on being all working class and Miners and Communists and Duw It’s Hard, but what Hywel really enjoys doing is writing articles for ‘The Guardian’ and ingratiating himself to the Top Doctors. Hywel has been Vice-President of Carers UK, but has been strangely silent on how carers have really been shafted and sold down the river by the Top Docs. In 2014 Hywel Francis became Chair of Byw Nawr, an organisation set up by the Dying Matters Coalition.

Dr Hywel Francis knows as well as I do how bloody unscrupulous the Top Docs are and the gross abuses which are taking place, but you won’t hear a word from him about it. Hywel has suggested that Wales could have a Carers’ Commissioner that could be based on the Children’s Commissioner. Hywel hasn’t mentioned that every Children’s Commissioner for Wales has been a senior social worker and at least two of them worked alongside paedophile/trafficking gangs earlier in their careers (see post ‘Yet More Inglorious Bastards’). The daughter of one of the Angels from the North Wales Hospital Denbigh who manned Dafydd’s Dungeon for years was a senior social worker in the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for Wales.

Here’s Baroness Ilora Finlay, one of those who awarded the prizes at the Bevan Foundation’s do in Parliament House:

Ilora Gillian Finlay, Baroness Finlay of Llandaff, is a Top Doctor who sits as an Independent crossbencher in the Lords. Born the only daughter of Professor Charles Beaumont Benoy Downman, Ilora married Andrew Yule Finlay in 1972, with whom she has two children.

The Baroness is a past President of the Royal Society of Medicine and Professor of Palliative Medicine at Cardiff University. Finlay is a consultant at the Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff.

The Baroness is a Vice President of Marie Curie, Patron of The Trussell Trust’s foodbank network in Wales and of the Motor Neurone Disease Association. She is also Patron of Student Volunteering Cardiff. Ilora Finlay was a Founding Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales and is a Member of its inaugural Council. The Learned Society of Wales is a real laugh, it is a group of rather pompous people who identify as being Cultured and Welsh who got together and made each other members of their Learned Society. My post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’ names many of the members of the Learned Society of Wales. Ilora Finlay is Patron of the charidee Students for Kids’ International Projects.

In March 2015, Finlay was awarded the Grassroot Diplomat Initiative for her vigorous championing of improving the care of dying patients.

Baroness Finlay is a Top Doctor and has been for her entire career. The fact that so many people still have such dreadful experiences when dying is entirely the fault of the Baroness and her colleagues. The conditions for a peaceful, pain-free death achievable by most people have been known for many years. There are a few people who get clobbered with conditions where pain relief and other matters do make a peaceful death tricky, but not many of them. The problem is that as with so many things Top Doctors, no-one bothers to do what they know is necessary and every account from a distraught bereaved relative is met with ‘How very dare you? We are the NHS and everyone knows that we are Selfless, Low Paid and Worked To Exhaustion.’ Thus nothing ever changes.

The Baroness picked up her peerage in 2001, the year after the Waterhouse Report. Well, she was/is a leading light at Cardiff University’s School of Medicine, in which virtually every Top Doctor was concealing the sex offending of George Thomas and the crimes of Dafydd and the gang.

 

So who is the President of the Bevan Foundation? It is the Windbag of course, someone else who knew all about George Thomas, Dafydd and the gang and much, much more. The Windbag who knew Dafydd’s mate Dr Tony Francis when they were at Cardiff University and who is married to Glenys, the school teacher from Holyhead, whose parents were active in the Labour Party, parents who concealed the crimes of Dafydd’s gang in a previous era and were friends with the likes of Lord Cledwyn, who was Bigger and Better at concealing the same crimes (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’).

One famous example of the Windbag’s oratory (ie. drunken ranting) was that speech he made just before the 1987 General Election, which included the following: ‘Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? Why is Glenys the first woman in her family in a thousand generations to be able to get to university?’

Well Windbag, I was the first person in my family ‘in a thousand generations’ to go to university and unlike you I got a good degree, but when you were making that speech, your mate Tony Francis and his colleagues were in the midst of formulating that elaborate well co-ordinated plan with David Ewart of the Mental Health Act Commission, Risley Remand Centre and Clwyd Health Authority, to have me framed and imprisoned for a serious crime (see previous posts), because I was the first in my family for a thousand generations to have tripped over the branch of the Westminster Paedophile Ring which your mate Francis, along with Dafydd et al, was facilitating in north Wales…

So why is Stephen Kinnock the next Kinnock of that thousand generations who has not become Labour PM, no matter how hard he and his parents have tried?

Perhaps because we have all had quite enough of the famille Windbag, their hypocrisy, troughing and massive sense of entitlement…

Of course he has to be given a safe Labour seat! Ooh I hear that Hywel will be retiring soon…

 

As of June 2015, the Chair of the Bevan Foundation was Vivienne Sugar. Sugar was appointed Chair of the Welsh Consumer Council in 2003 and then of Consumer Focus Wales in Jan 2008, where she remained until April 2014 when the UK Government transferred its functions to the CAB, the CAB being one of the domains of Lucille Hughes. Consumer Focus (now known as Consumer Futures) was an executive non-departmental public body of the Dept of Business, Innovation and Skills and represented consumers across regulated markets. The Secretary of State for the Dept of BIS, 2009-10 and its predecessor, the Dept of Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform, 2008-09, was Mandy.

I have mentioned in previous posts that one of Mandy’s civil servants and right hand women was a local star from Anglesey, the daughter of Ron Evans. Ron was the crooked lawyer who worked for Gwynedd County Council and was the Brains behind the attempts to imprison me on the basis of the perjury of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team (see post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’). Documents in my possession demonstrate that Ron was acting on the orders of Lucille Hughes. Ron was also offering his services to Gwynedd Health Authority and when that body became Gwynedd Community NHS Trust in respect of their attempts to imprison me, although Ron was employed by Gwynedd County Council not the NHS.

Mandy spent many years trying in vain to transform the Windbag into a PM. It was during those years that Ron Evans repeatedly tried to have me stitched up and imprisoned. Mandy is a former Lambeth Councillor, Lambeth being a Borough who’s children’s homes were infiltrated by a paedophile gang with links to Dafydd and Lucille’s gang in north Wales. Children in the care of Lambeth were sent to children’s homes in north Wales.

 

Vivienne Sugar was born in Gorseinon, Swansea and studied at Leeds University. She held positions at Newport Borough Council and Cardiff City Council; Sugar was Director of Housing in both Councils. In 1995 Sugar was appointed Chief Executive to the City and County of Swansea, where she remained until 2003.

So not only was Vivienne in the thick of the scoundrels in Newport Borough and Cardiff City Councils, but she presided over Swansea during those years when the enormous problems in the Social Services in Swansea were, as usual, ignored, concealed and denied, until the explosion which followed the murder of the baby Aaron Gilbert in 2005, by which time Vivienne Sugar had scarpered from the wreckage. The Inquiry and investigations that followed Aaron’s death confirmed what many people had known for years, that Swansea Social Services were negligent fuckwits who had no idea what they were doing. Aaron’s murder was one of those cases of ‘Christ, however was any of this allowed to happen?’ There was a bit of a scrap after Aaron’s death, because someone from Swansea Social Services was actually sacked. However, they bravely fought back in a way that only a health and welfare professional caught out after the death of a Service User can and they were subsequently reinstated. I also seem to remember that the progress up the ladder of a senior person involved was temporarily halted, but after a short interval, once the media had lost interest in the scandal, they were promoted to an even more senior position.

It was however all a bit embarrassing for Swansea Social Services, who pioneered the excuse of ‘it wasn’t social workers who killed Aaron’ accompanied by comments that there ‘will always be’ ‘wicked’ and ‘evil’ people who murder children and the people responsible for Aaron’s death were now in prison. Which indeed they were. They were two troubled young people who had been in the ‘care’ of the ‘services’ themselves, who could not look after Aaron but had been left to stew nonetheless. It was revealed that the neighbours had been deeply concerned about the welfare of Aaron and one of them had rung Swansea Social Services and told them that he was being neglected. Unfortunately because the neighbour concerned told the Social Services that Aaron’s mum was behaving like a tart and was hanging around with junkies, Swansea Social Services refused to act on the information as a result of the ‘inappropriate’ and ‘judgemental’ language used by the caller. So when Aaron was murdered by the casual addict boyfriend of his mum, Swansea simply denounced the tart and the addict as ‘evil’, being so non-judgemental themselves.

The tart herself had not played any part in the murder of her baby, but she was jailed for the newly-created crime of ‘familial homicide’; it was the first such prosecution in Wales, on the grounds that the tart had ‘allowed’ the crime to happen. She had not conducted herself in a particularly sensible manner, but she was 21, had grown up in care and was terrified of the man who did kill her baby. She was not in the house when her boyfriend killed Aaron.

‘Familial homicide’ was introduced in the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004 to deal with parents who keep silent or blame each other for fatal injuries involving children. I am waiting for similar legislation to be passed with regard to all those well-paid professional people who have kept quiet about the abuse of vulnerable people in Wales and elsewhere.

After Aaron’s mother and her boyfriend were jailed, NSPCC Cymru/Wales Director, Greta Thomas, said ‘Without this new law it is likely that Rebecca Lewis and Andrew Lloyd would have joined a long list of couples who have been acquitted or not even brought to trial for murdering a child.’

NSPCC Cymru – and the wider NSPCC – were among many who knew about the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and other gangs carrying out organised abuse but who remained silent, even when their own staff were involved in the abuse. It was the NSPCC who established the Helpline to ‘support’ those who gave evidence at the trials of some of the few who were prosecuted for abuse in north Wales. Very few people would agree to give evidence because they feared reprisals. The managers of the Helpline were former social workers in north Wales who were colleagues of the abusers. One of the few people who dared avail themselves of the support provided by the Helpline was found dead. The NSPCC stated in response that they had followed policy and were fully covered by their insurance. See previous posts.

 

A few other Social Service Dept’s have taken a leaf out of Swansea’s book since Aaron’s death and after monumental cock-ups they have simply observed that it wasn’t the social workers wot did it. Er no, the social workers weren’t the ones who actually bludgeoned the victims to death, but lest anyone has taken their eye off the ball, I will remind everyone that Social Services Depts were established and are run – at the cost of many millions – to prevent such events happening. That is why the senior managers are paid high salaries, why everyone in the Dept is actually employed and why legislation is in place which gives them enormous power over birth parents, foster and adoptive parents and other family members/carers. If they are simply going to wash their hands of everything entirely, let’s just sack the lot of them, shut the Social Services down and save the taxpayer a great deal of money. At the same time, we can close the police force down because it is after all the robbers wot do it not the police and shut down the schools, because it’s the kids who fail their exams, not the teachers. Why not just destroy the whole of society Swansea Social Services, after all it’s not working very effectively is it?

In 2005 – Aaron Gilbert was murdered in May 2005 – Vivienne Sugar was appointed as Wales Adviser to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and also became Pro-Chancellor of Swansea University, a position that she held until 2012. The Bevan Foundation has commissioned the JRF to carry out work. Another person who has had a go at being Wales Adviser to the JRF is Michael Trickey. Trickey is married to Jane Hutt, who is the Labour AM for the Vale of Glamorgan. Jane is a former social worker who founded Welsh Wimmin’s Aid and was the Welsh Gov’t Minister for Health and Social Services as the disaster which led to Aaron Gilbert’s death unfolded. Having been such a roaring success in that post, Rhodri then gave Hutt the job of Minister for Assembly Business and appointed her Chief Whip. In July 2007 Rhodri made Jane Minister for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills, where she cluttered up the corridors until Dec 2009. As havoc prevailed at Bangor University…

 

I was told by a friend who is an academic in Bradford that the JRF are well-known for only funding research bids submitted by people whom are already favoured by them. A professional bid writer at a Russell Group university told my friend that if one is not already in the inner circle of the JRF, it is not worth submitting any bids to them, no matter what the JRF are requesting. The only way that academics extract funding out of the JRF is by making friends with them and joining the club. A look at those who do receive funding from the JRF is instructive. They do indeed seem to favour certain people, particularly Professor Danny Dorling, the JRF really loves Danny. Danny writes much about poverty and exclusion and he does his stats and analyses, but one area that Danny does not touch is the neglect and abuse of vulnerable people by the welfare services themselves. Never mind, it’s been enough to transport him from Sheffield University to Oxford University.

 

Until December 2013 Vivienne Sugar was Chair of the National Regeneration Panel advising the Welsh Government. Vivienne is a consultant to Local Government and a member of the Council of the Property Ombudsman. She is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Housing.

Here’s Viv picking up an honorary Doctor of Law degree from Swansea University in 2013, the year after she finished being their Pro-Chancellor:

 

Vivienne Sugar

 

In the spiel on Swansea University’s website, it is explained that during Viv’s tenure as Pro-Chancellor, the University ‘experienced one of the most dramatic periods of growth and transformation in its history, including the realisation of plans for the construction of the University’s new Science and Innovation Campus’. A great many of Those In The Dark such as I wondered how the scandal ridden troubled wreckage of an institution which was Swansea University managed to persuade the Welsh Gov’t to stump up for that Science and Innovation Campus. I presumed that it had something to do with Rhodri Morgan, because Rhodri Morgan’s friends and relations virtually run Swansea University (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’), but the presence of Viv, an insider throughout the decades of corruption in the rotten Councils of south Wales, won’t have done Swansea University any harm at all.

When Viv was given her honorary degree she commented that ‘I have been particularly pleased to be involved in developing the student experience’. The students at Swansea were so impressed with their student experience that after the wrecking ball which is Professor Hilary Lappin-Scott almost single-handedly destroyed the Business School at Swansea, the students held a demo, explaining to the media that the allegations of nepotism and dreadful behaviour on the part of Hilary and the senior staff in the Business School had brought the University into such disrepute that their degrees had been devalued.

Those of us who were employed at Bangor University some years ago also enjoyed the Hilary Satan-Scott Experience. Hilary, was for a brief, terrible time, the PVC for Research at Bangor University. The damage that she did was seriously impressive. A minor crime of Hilary’s was to e mail me and tell me that she had a special interest in Wimmin should I wish to support her. I had already become aware of Hilary’s shameless lies and ruthless bullying in the direction of other members of staff so I sent Hilary an e mail politely saying that I had not experienced discrimination at Bangor on the basis of my gender and that being a woman without children I didn’t see any reason why I should be afforded any special privileges or indeed have anyone taking a particular interest in me because I was a Woman. Weeks later, the University refused to pay my fieldwork expenses -which they were legally obliged to pay – amounting to several hundred quid. I discovered that Satan-Scott had e mailed the finance dept refusing to sign the payment off. No reason, she just wasn’t going to do it. I had no money for petrol or groceries. My mates lent me dosh to tide me over and after communications with Satan-Scott proved fruitless, I went to see the VC who facilitated the payment of my expenses.

Shortly after that, Satan-Scott and Professor Fergus Lowe attempted to close down five Depts at Bangor University, one of them being the one in which I worked. One member of staff from one of the Depts earmarked for closure committed suicide. Satan-Scott’s plans to close down most of the University were stopped because the VC announced his retirement on the day that Satan-Scott and Fungus attempted to force the plans through. Satan-Scott tried to go ahead nonetheless but was prevented for doing so by the University Council…

Meanwhile, the grapevine let us know that while Satan-Scott was employed at Bangor, she was hobnobbing with her former colleagues at Exeter University, telling them all how shite we were and that the VC was a ‘rat leaving a sinking ship’ no less.

The late Professor Fungus Lowe, in the days when he was still in possession of hair:

Fungus’s mistress, Professor Pauline Horne:

  • Prof Pauline Horne | School of Psychology | Bangor University

 

When Fungus died in 2014, his acolytes from the School of Psychology wrote a wonderful obituary for him in which they claimed that as a young graduate from Dublin in the early 1970s, Fungus couldn’t decide whether to become a Film Director or a Psychologist, but he decided on Psychology and made his way to UCNW at Bangor to begin his PhD (see post ‘Feet In Chains’). When Fungus registered for that PhD, the Psychology Dept in Bangor was a derelict house containing a very small number of Dafydd’s mates, who did what Dafydd told them and facilitated the paedophile/trafficking gang, assisted by the rest of UCNW. I do not for one minute believe that Fungus waved goodbye to Hollywood to join Dafydd. Perhaps Pauline, someone else who inexplicably decided that her future lay as a psychologist and went up to UCNW to join old Fungus after she had been working as a biomedical researcher in the London hospitals, would like to tell us the real reason why the sociopath Fungus rocked up in Bangor to work with a paedophile gang?

Hilary Satan-Scott parted company with Bangor University shortly her failure to close the place down. By the end, she was inflicting so much damage upon the institution that there were serious discussions regarding the possibility that she was being paid by someone to damage the University. Bangor University and the VC were most definitely under attack from the paedophiles’ friends at the time (see eg. posts ‘Badlands’ and ‘A Discovery Of Witches’), but whether Satan-Scott was a gift from them or just a fuckwit I don’t know.

When Satan-Scott finally departed the parish, it was rumoured that she had been sacked and escorted off the premises by security, but no-one leaked any information, not even Professor Colin Baker aka The Sieve, so we all remained in the dark, save for a brief e mail from the Registrar telling us all that the nightmare was over and no more would be said about the matter.

My most bizarre Satan-Scott Experience occurred when Duncan Tanner, the former Director of Research at Bangor University, died. Because Hilary was such a nightmare, a lot of the staff, including me, were going to Duncan for advice and mentoring. Duncan was a Welsh Labour modern historian and some of the work that I was doing overlapped with his field, so we began working together. One day I arrived at work and I saw Hilary heading towards me. Because I thought that I would just be berated with more fuckwittery about Wimmin, I tried to escape, but Hilary  caught up with me and opened the conversation with ‘Eee you knew Duncan very well didn’t you? You were working together weren’t you? Well ‘e’s dead. ‘Is ‘eart I understand. Ee, very sad.’ And then she buggered off.

I was gobsmacked, so I went to my office. It was still before 8 am, so the only people whom I could ring to check out this story were my friends but none of them knew whether Duncan had died. One of them observed ‘well surely even Hilary isn’t such a psycho that she’d have told you that Duncan was dead when he’s not’. I found out within the next hour that Duncan had indeed died, just hours before, at Ysbyty Gwynedd. Duncan was only 51 and he died during a minor, routine operation which should never have led to his death. But that’s Ysbyty fucking Gwynedd for you and no doubt the truth will never be told about that death.

Shortly after Duncan’s death, ‘The Daily Post’ ran a fictitious Good News story about the miracles which had been performed on a patient who had died and come back to life repeatedly no less while in the care of one of Ysbyty Gwynedd’s cardiologists. I knew the Lazarus who was at the centre of the story. Some years previously I had caught her stealing from an older lady whom I used to lodge with and her alcoholic husband had been offering to provide ‘sex education’ for the young adult daughter of the older lady, a young woman who had learning disabilities and mental health problems. When I challenged Lazarus and the alkie about their conduct, they rang the relatives of the older lady and her daughter and told them that a Dangerous Mental Patient had moved in with them. The Arfon Community Mental Health Team were delighted to confirm to the relatives that indeed I was Dangerous, so Dangerous that they would refuse to visit the older lady and her daughter – who were both ‘clients’ of the Arfon Team – if I remained in the house. I moved out to give everyone a quiet life.

I raised my concerns about that offer of ‘sex education’ but I was ignored.

The older lady, when she was younger, had a child forcibly and unlawfully removed from her at birth by the combined forces of Dafydd, St David’s Laundry in Bangor and her mother, whom she did not get on with. She old lady’s ‘difficult’ behaviour was manifested by her refusing to shut up about the baby whom had been abducted. She told me that she had called him Martin and all that she knew about him was that he had been given to a couple in Cheshire. Her one wish was to trace him before she died but no-one would help her. She was found dead in her house near Caernarfon during the period of time between 2002 and 2003 when the Hergest Unit were trying to frame me for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’. My post ‘Oliver!’ and the comments which follow it explain that Davies made eight or nine phone calls to the police demanding that they arrest and charge me while he was in a meeting at the Welsh Assembly with Jane Hutt and her officials. At the time, I was sitting in a locked ward in the Hergest Unit, injured, having been denied contact with the police to report the assault on me by four Angels, which had resulted in the injury.

Documents now in my possession show that at the same time, Dr Sadie Francis also made a number of claims that I had threatened her and that she was too frightened to come near me. Other documents written at the same time – by Sadie – confirm that I had not threatened Sadie and no, she was not frightened of me. It appears that Sadie had only made such statements in an attempt to assist the cause of Alun Davies and Dr Tony Roberts, a Hergest Unit psychiatrist who had previously worked with Dafydd at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, who were both desperate to frame me, on the grounds that I should be imprisoned for my terrible crimes.

A subsequent complaint by me to the GMC about Tony Roberts did not result in an investigation. However, a forged letter to the GMC purporting to be from me about Tony Roberts, was found in the possession of the GMC at a later date. See post ‘The General Medical Council And Yet Another Forged Document’.

 

Here are a few other middle aged men involved with the Labour Party with knowledge of skulduggery who died relatively young and unexpectedly from heart problems:

Robin Cook-close crop.jpg

 

[ image: Mr Fatchett said he was once a bearded leftie Marxist]

 

Then of course there was Michael Carr, the Labour MP for Bootle, who died in the ‘care of’ the Walton Hospital, 57 days after he took office, after tangling with both Militant and the paedophiles’ friends. Walton Hospital was effectively run by Militant. See post ‘News From Sicily’.

 

A memorial service was held for Duncan Tanner at Bangor University, during which The Red Flag was sung. At the memorial service, a number of people insulted the VC. But then the paedophiles’ friends had insulted the VC at his own wife’s memorial service, so why are we not surprised. The person who sat behind me at Duncan’s memorial service was a local lawyer, Frances Jones, who told those sitting next to her that Bangor University was being wrecked by the VC’s strategy.

I recognised Frances Jones because just a few weeks earlier, she had joined me at Bangor Police Station when I was unlawfully arrested by Elfed Roberts, the Chair of the North West Wales NHS Trust, for having pink hair, calling his car a penismobile and because he was fed up with my complaints. Frances certainly got me out of the police station quickly and I heard no more from the police. But interestingly enough I heard no more from Frances either, although she had extracted a confession, which was recorded, from the police officer involved, a DC Steve Power, that I had been unlawfully harassed and arrested. I recognised DC Power. He was the police officer who some years before had refused to take a statement or investigate my complaint after I was assaulted by Angels in the Hergest Unit in 2002, although I had been given an appointment with DC Power for the very purpose of making a statement about the matter, having been denied contact with the police by the Angels in the immediate aftermath of the assault. See previous posts.

I was later told by a colleague that Frances Jones is the favoured lawyer for ‘the villains of Anglesey, she gets them off every time’.

Dafydd and many of his henchmen live on Anglesey.

When I took delivery of yet more of my medical records some two years ago, Frances Jones’s name was on them. In one of the cases against me brought by Gwynedd Social Services in an attempt to imprison me in the early 1990s, Frances had been the lawyer who had prepared the ‘exhibits’. The ‘exhibits’ included affidavits sworn by members of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team – two of whom had never met me – which were substantially untrue. Furthermore, documents in my possession contain information which suggests that the four perjurers of the Arfon Team had not actually seen those affidavits which they had previously ‘sworn’ and ‘signed’ when they arrived at Chester Court to give evidence against me. I know this because of the instructions provided to the Arfon perjurers in a little handwritten note written by Ron Evans, the corrupt solicitor who was employed by Gwynedd County Council. Ron told the perjurers to arrive for the case early, to make themselves known to the clerk of the court who will be expecting them and who will then ‘show them where to go’ so that they can ‘familiarise themselves’ with the affidavits. This was the court case over which Justice John Roch – later Lord Justice Roch – presided. The venue and judge were changed just before the case. I have a copy of the note written by Ron to the perjurers telling them this and giving them details of the new venue, but my barrister wasn’t told. She was sent to the wrong court and arrived very late, so didn’t have time to speak to me before the case.

However, whoever had ‘prepared’ the exhibits had told so many lies in the affidavits that the lies in each affidavit were inconsistent with the other ones. Something like 14 charges against me were thrown out. Did Roch make any comment about the industrial scale perjury? Er no. Roch instead offered the perjurers extra time to rewrite their statements to co-ordinate their lies.

See post ‘Some Big legal Names Enter The Arena’.

Frances! How can the villains of Anglesey rely on you when you couldn’t even achieve consistency with the lies in those statements? Could it possibly be because rather than being a hot shot, you are completely fucking bent?

Ron Evans knew all about the abuse of kids in north Wales, because his wife Dinah told me that he did. Dinah told me that when the investigations into the abuse of kids in north Wales began, Ron told everyone that they must never, ever say a word about it to anyone, because what had happened was so bad and so indefensible that everyone would go to prison. Dinah had no idea that I was one of the witnesses whom her husband had shafted, I only got to know her years later when I worked as a sociologist at Bangor. I got to know Dinah because she was a lecturer in the Dept of History at Bangor, having finished her PhD with Duncan Tanner. Dinah is a magistrate in north Wales!

I don’t think that Dinah was in on the skulduggery that was happening at Bangor University at the time of Duncan’s death. Years previously Ron had developed cancer and had a breakdown and the north Wales NHS being what it is, Ron was left to rot. The paedophiles’ friends will have theorised that if Ron died, it will have been one less person who knew what they all did. Dinah thought Duncan was marvellous and she was distraught when he died; she also really loathed Hilary Satan-Scott.

Dinah, you are completely out of your depth. This lot are terrible, they are still killing witnesses and they threw you and Ron to the wolves years ago.

Dinah is a neighbour of Dr Sadie Francis. After Tony Francis killed himself, Sadie told Dinah that it was my fault. Dinah didn’t realise that I was the ‘awful woman’ whom she had been told hounded poor Tony to death, but I worked out from the context that it was me…

Dinah’s colleague in the History Dept who also worked closely with Duncan is Professor Andrew Edwards. Andrew went to university as a mature student; before that Andrew was a police officer in the North Wales Police.

Duncan died in Feb 2010.

This man was PM at the time:

  • Gordon Brown's battle for Britain: 'You have to think ...
  • William Keegan: Gordon Brown Saved Britain... and May Even ...

 

In Feb 2010 Mandy, for whom Ron and Dinah’s daughter was working as a senior aide, was Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills. Universities fell under Mandy’s remit. Mandy was also at the time Lord President of the Council. One of the functions of the Lord President of the Council is that of the visitor for the constituent colleges of the University of Wales, except for Lampeter. By the time that Mandy was Lord President of the Council, Bangor had very recently waved a fond farewell to the University of Wales and was a university in its own right, Bangor University. But what with all those tentacles, I’m sure that Mandy knew a man who could.

Two paedophiles’ friends who really loathed the VC were the leading lights in the School of Theology and Religious Studies at Bangor, Professor Densil Morgan and Dr Catrin Haf Williams. Densil and Catrin Haf had made a great nuisance of themselves for years and there were many complaints from students of vicious bullying and unfair practice on the part of Densil and Catrin; there was also a steady exodus of their students changing course and escaping to other Depts. So there was much celebrating when word got around that Densil and Catrin would be leaving Bangor.

There were constant allegations that the VC was going to close the School of Theology and a paedophiles’ friend hurled insults at him in one public meeting on this basis. However the School of Theology didn’t close, although Densil and Catrin departed – for Lampeter. I had a friend who was a theologian and he told me that Lampeter really did not want Densil and Catrin Haf because their reputation for toxicity was known throughout the UK, but Densil and Catrin Haf had done a deal with another authority somewhere (but I can’t remember which one) to relocate to Lampeter. Within a few years of Densil and Catrin arriving, many members of staff from the Theology Dept at Lampeter found themselves jobs in other universities.

Densil is a Nonconformist Minister. He comes from West Glamorganshire and was was educated at UCNW and Regents Park College, Oxford. He trained for Ministry at the North Wales Baptist College. Following ordination, Densil was settled to the Welsh Baptist group of churches centred on Penygroes in Gwynedd where he ministered for some years before moving to assist two churches on Anglesey. It was after this that Densil became a member of staff of the School of Theology and Religious Studies at Bangor. He also became Warden of the North Wales Baptist College, Bangor on the retirement of the previous Principal, the Rev’d John Rice Rowlands.

That biography suggests that Densil knows a great deal about much of the wrongdoing discussed on this blog. Densil is the man who has written the hagiographies of J.E. Daniel, a theologian and inspector of schools in north Wales. J.E. Daniel was one of the founder members of Plaid. Dafydd knew J.E. Daniel and also knows his son, Huw Daniel. See post ‘Tan yn Llyn’.

Huw Daniel is a bent judge who was a colleague of John Roch. Huw Daniel presided over the hearings after Alun Davies and the perjurers of the North West Wales NHS Trust had me arrested and charged for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’. The charge was withdrawn on the first day of the trial but nonetheless Huw Daniel issued a restraining order banning me from NHS properties which he knew was legally invalid. No questions were asked about the perjury by anyone. See previous posts.

 

Catrin Haf’s father is the clergyman who conducted the marriage of William and Ffion Hague. William Hague, in his capacity as Secretary of State for Wales, orchestrated the carefully rigged Waterhouse Inquiry and Ffion met William when she was working as a civil servant in the Welsh Office, when the Welsh Office was full of people concealing organised abuse in Wales and had been for decades. When Miranda became PM in 1997, he appointed Ron Davies as Secretary of State for Wales. The Ron who had been doing many interesting things that were well-known in south Wales for years, such as cottaging in public, but who was only outed in the media when he had that moment of madness on Clapham Common with a male prostitute called Boogie (see previous posts, including ‘Cottaging At Castle Gate). Ron’s (now ex) wife Christina Rees is a barrister who since 2015 has been the Labour MP for Neath and is now the Shadow Secretary of State for Wales. Who did of course know nothing at all about Ron’s Ugandan activities, even if the rest of south Wales did.

Official portrait of Christina Rees crop 2.jpg

 

When Ron stepped down after the much publicised encounter with Boogie, he was replaced by Alun Michael, the Labour MP for Cardiff South and Penarth and AM for Mid and West Wales. Michael was born on Anglesey, went to school in Colwyn Bay and is a former journalist, youth and community worker, magistrate and City of Cardiff Councillor, who also knew a great deal more about the abuse of vulnerable people in Wales than he ever admitted. Alun Michael subsequently became FM of Wales, but scarpered as soon as the Waterhouse Report was published (see post ‘News From Sicily’). Alun is now the Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales.

Alun’s son Tal Michael was based in London and held a senior role in a London Borough Council until he felt the pull of hiraeth some ten years ago and landed in north Wales. Tal immediately bagged the job as Chief Exec of the North Wales Police Authority and then stood for election as the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales. He was unsuccessful and then tried to become the Labour AM for Ynys Mon when Dafydd’s mate Ieuan Wyn Jones stood down as the Plaid AM for Ynys Mon in 2013. Allegations of dirty tricks were made regarding the process by which Tal was selected as the Labour candidate. Tal didn’t have much luck at the polls and he now runs the CAB for Gwynedd. Lucille Hughes has been involved with the senior management of the CAB in Wales for years.

I once had the pleasure of sitting in an IWA meeting with Tal who assured me that Labour were a dead cert to win the next General Election. I told him that they wouldn’t. Tal snapped that they would, all the polling showed that they would. I told Tal that polls had got it very wrong before. Tal shot back with that was only one General Election when Thatch won unexpectedly.

Tal: Did you notice that Ed Miliband didn’t win the General Election? I know that you told everyone that he would and Ed was so sure that he would that he even promised the tossers like Tristram, Ed and Yvette Cabinet jobs, but he LOST. I told you that he would because I could see that even Labour voters were sick of what was going on. I might be an Empowered Service User Tal rather than a candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner or the Labour AM for Ynys Mon, but I don’t spend my time lording it over people so I tend to know what’s going on at ground level and my father didn’t conceal the fucking Westminster Paedophile Ring either.

A Chip Off The Corrupt Old Bastard’s Block:

Who's who in the Anglesey Welsh Assembly by-election ...

 

 

After mergers, some years ago, the University of Wales Lampeter became the University of Wales Trinity St David. Densil and Catrin Haf were not the only people who exited Bangor only to make their way to Trinity St David. The Crack of Doom aka Meri Huws, formerly a PVC at Bangor and former bedfellow of many a Welsh Gov’t Minister, including it is rumoured Rhodri The Ale Twat himself (see post ‘People With Energy’), left for the green green grass of Trinity St David after causing much destruction in north Wales. In the 1980s, Meri was a community social worker in Bangor and her patch included Ty’r Felin children’s home, in which children were physically and sexually abused and sold for sex by their social workers in north Wales and further afield, including in Dolphin Square in London (see post ‘Are You Local?’).

Nefyn Dodd, the manager of Ty’r Felin, used to boast of his friendship with Dafydd. When Meri was Head of the School of Lifelong Learning in Bangor University, that School offered ‘courses’ carried out in collaboration with Dafydd and Lucille’s Charity CAIS.

Another person who has found themselves a nice little number at Trinity St David wearing her environmentalism hat is Jane Davidson, the former AM for Pontypridd, who was the Welsh Gov’t Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning. Jane Davidson is from Birmingham and has a background in education, but by a process of which I know nothing arrived in Wales and was sufficiently well-networked with those we know and love to sit as a Cardiff City Councillor and then bag a seat in the newly created Welsh Assembly. Davidson’s time as Minister for Education was notorious for the business over ELWA.

ELWA was yet another organisation which provided a few highly paid jobs for the paedophiles’ friends and benefited no-one else to any great extent, although it swallowed a great deal of taxpayers’ cash. ELWA went under the umbrella of being a ‘learning and training’ organisation. At one point it was realised that Jane had authorised the transfer of £2 million from ELWA 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, the ‘proud north Waleian’ refused to relocate to south Wales when appointed as Chair of ELWA, nearly all of whose staff were in south Wales. The Enid who is married to Huw Vaughan Thomas, who was Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council when the paedophile gang were busy within…

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. Dr Peter Higson is now Chairman of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

For further details regarding this sordid con and the huge conflicts of interest of everyone involved, see post ‘You Know I’m No Good…’

 

I note that Jane Davidson was Minister for Education just as I began my teaching career and the paedophiles’ friends had noted that and were sending each other memos that they would have to put a stop to this…

 

Densil and Catrin Haf were famed for their poison, but even some of the more benign members of staff of the School of Theology at Bangor knew much about the wrongdoing of Dafydd et al. Eryl Davies – later Professor Eryl Davies – was when I was in my first year at UCNW, warden of the hall where I lived, Llys Tryfan. Eryl was very popular among the students because he didn’t hassle us and people used to drop in at his for a coffee. I never heard any allegations about Eryl doing things to undergrads that he should not have, but he knew all about Gordon Farley, the sexual harasser who was employed as a lecturer in the Agriculture Dept (see post ‘Not Seen Since The 80s – Carwyn’), because Farley had been warden the year before Eryl was and there had been constant problems with Farley finding himself in the rooms of female students when he hadn’t been invited in. All this was discussed quite openly in front of Eryl, the anecdotes were legion and Eryl was on the scene when a pissed Farley crashed a students party and tried to grope the girls.

There was another reason why Eryl was held in high esteem by the students. That was because it was said that Eryl refused to let the Drug Squad into Llys Tryfan. In the 1980s the Drug Squad in north Wales were notorious for their corruption (see previous posts) and were constantly hassling students and hippies; carrying out busts and if they didn’t find any drugs, they’d plant them. People had so much grief that some people who were in possession of recreational chemicals and didn’t want to be hassled moved into Llys Tryfan for a quiet life. I don’t know WHY the Drug Squad obeyed Eryl’s instructions not to enter, they certainly didn’t obey such instructions from anyone else and they didn’t even obey the law, but it was true that they did not come near Llys Tryfan. They didn’t even pay a visit to the boy who lived on the floor below me who set up shop, kept his scales for weighing out the drugs on the windowsill and who did a roaring trade.

Eryl did something else as well that I never heard any of the staff at UCNW doing; he visited the students who were taken to the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. I have mentioned in previous posts that very few students did go to Denbigh. Because of what Dafydd et al were actually doing out there, huge efforts made to ensure that students were kept well away from Denbigh lest middle class English parents hear a terrible tale and ask questions, but a few stragglers did end up there and Eryl would go out and see them. I always thought that was very good of Eryl and I’m sure that the students appreciated it, but I know that Eryl did know much of what Dafydd et al was up to. Eryl grew up in north east Wales and his brother was a dentist in that area, they will have known a great deal about Dafydd and the gang.

Furthermore Eryl knew Patient F, who, after challenging Meri Huws’s colleagues about their abuse of boys in the Ty Newydd children’s home, was framed by the Drug Squad, assaulted in the police station, framed for arson, unlawfully held in Risley Remand Centre and then in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and subsequently relieved of his property, money and child by the paedophile gang. See previous posts. At one point F began a degree in theology at UCNW and Eryl was one of his tutors. F liked Eryl, indeed Eyl was the only tutor whom F did like, he told me that the others were absolutely dreadful and it was because of the others that F withdrew from the course. However F got to know Eryl well and F, being very chatty and extroverted, openly discussed his time in Risley and Denbigh with Eryl. F never told me whether he told Eryl what he had found out was going on at Ty Newydd, but it is highly probable that he did, it was one of F’s lines of conversation because he was so shocked at the way in which the boys were treated.

 

Following Hilary Satan-Scott’s adventures at Bangor, everyone presumed that she would never work again, except for Brown who said ‘oh no, she’ll be really useful to a totally unscrupulous university which wants to sack staff and close depts’. Brown predicted that Satan-Scott would soon become VC of a former poly in England and that there would be much trauma. That hasn’t happened – well not yet anyway – but within months of leaving Bangor, Satan-Scott landed her job as a PVC at Swansea University…

However Hilary has managed to win an award for being an Inspirational Woman and get herself photographed with HRH Princess Snap.

See previous posts for more information re Hilary Satan-Scott.

One thing that I did hear on the grapevine was that Hilary was going nowhere in her previous job at Exeter University which was why she went to Bangor. Yet Hilary hated Bangor, hated ‘The Welsh’ and was still batting for her old mates at Exeter. Her relocation didn’t make much sense even if she did want to Move On. There were also rumours that Bangor University investigated the possibility of suing Exeter for providing such a misleading reference with regard to Satan-Scott’s abilities.

The VC of Exeter University who oversaw Satan-Scott’s departure was Professor Sir Steve Smith, who has been Vice-Chancellor of the University of Exeter since October 2002. Steve Smith was previously Senior Pro Vice-Chancellor at Aberystwyth, where Steve Smith was most unpopular. Sir Steve is a graduate of the University of Southampton, which is an institution that hosted many high profile Top Doctors who afforded protection for Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘Professor Prestigious And His Associates’).

Exeter has excelled in its choice of Chancellors as well. Their current Chancellor is Lord Paul Myners. Myners was brought up in Truro, Cornwall, and has led a ‘distinguished career’ in international banking and business. Myners attended Truro School and obtained a First Class Honours degree in Education and a PGCE from the University of London, after which he taught for a year in Inner London, 1971-72, by which time kids from inner London were being exported to the children’s homes of north Wales. Myners proceeded. Myners then entered journalism via the Daily Telegraph and moved into a 20-year career in the City as a fund manager, initially at N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd, then at Gartmore plc until 2001.

In 2008, Myners was appointed City Minister in Gordon Brown’s Government and joined the Lords. He now sits as a crossbencher.

Myners has Chaired a number of public companies including Marks & Spencer, Land Securities and Chaired non-commercial organisations, including The Tate and the Low Pay Commission.

Many moons ago when the Royal College of Psychiatrists was first established, Professor Martin Roth was for some reason given a huge loan by M&S, the purpose of which was to buy the Royal College a magnificent building in Belgravia in which to house themselves. Other Top Docs told them that they could never afford it, but grandiosity won the day and the building was purchased. The Royal College was nearly bankrupted subsequently and the grandiose building had to be quietly flogged off. I have not been able to find out why M&S helped Dafydd’s mates out in this way, but years later, the widow of the Chair of M&S also threw her lot in with the initiatives of the paedophiles’ friends.

Paul Myners has held a Directorship of the Singapore Sovereign Wealth Fund and membership of the Court of the Bank of England. He has also served on several arts and public policy boards, including as Chair of the Tate Foundation and Trustee of Glyndebourne, London Symphony Orchestra and the National Maritime Museum.

Myners was Chair of the Guardian Media Group, the publisher of ‘The Guardian’ and ‘Observer’, 2000-08. So he was installed as Chair in time to deal with the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report. No wonder we heard so little about the travesty which was the Waterhouse Inquiry and the Report.

Myners is currently working with a number of public and private companies primarily in the asset management sector.

Being a Cornishman, Paul has a love of the South West and a lifelong commitment to enhancing the future educational and economic prosperity of our region. Paul loves Cornwall so much that lives in London. His interests include contemporary art, opera and jazz.

Coming from Cornwall and going to Truro School, Paul Myners probably knew David Penhaligon, the Lib Dem MP who had much dirt on many people and who was killed in a car crash in Dec 1986, days after Professor Ollie Brooke was imprisoned for child porn offences and days after Dafydd unlawfully arrested and imprisoned me. Myners probably also knew Penhaligon’s assistant, Matthew Taylor, who took over Penhaligon’s seat and ended up bagging a seat in the Lords despite spending his entire career in obscurity. See post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not ‘Arf’.

 

Paul Myners succeeded Floella Benjamin as Chancellor of Exeter. Baroness Benjamin is a Trinidadian-British actress, author, TV presenter, singer, businesswoman and politician. She is known as a presenter of children’s programmes such as  ‘Play School’ and ‘Play Away’. On 28 June 2010, Lady Benjamin was introduced to the Lords by the Lib Dems.

Floella’s Other TV credits include ‘Angels’, ‘Within These Walls’, ‘Crown Court’ and ‘Dixon of Dock Green’.

Benjamin is Vice-President of NCH Action for Children and Barnardo’s and was in the NSPCC’s Hall of Fame. She runs the London Marathon to raise funds for Barnardo’s and the Sickle Cell Society.

Staff of the NCH and Barnardo’s, as well as the NSPCC, were involved with the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and in organised abuse elsewhere. George Thomas was Patron of the NCH, while he abused children. Thatch also supported the NCH, while she ignored warnings that her friend and Minister Sir Peter Morrison was abusing children in care, including in north Wales.

In July 2007 Floella spoke of what she saw as the low standard of children’s television. In Floella’s ‘Play School’ heyday, Jimmy Savile was a staple of children’s and young people’s TV.

In March 2013, Floella used a speech marking International Wimmin’s Day to warn of the impact on children of the availability of violent pornographic material online, claiming this was leading to the increasing objectification of women. 

John Allen’s gang in north Wales used their victims to make child porn which catered to the most exotic tastes, including bestiality.

Floella is a Patron of the charidee Beating Bowel Cancer, having lost her mother to the disease in and knowing much about tumour biology, having previously presented ‘Play School’.

What can we see through the Round Window? Some histopathology slides? No, it’s Big Ted, Little Ted, Humpty, Hambel and Jemima:

In October 2015, in a talk to migrant children, Floella Benjamin said that dropping her accent was the key to her success and that migrant pupils should do the same to avoid racism and bullying. Floella: advising people to drop their foreign accents IS racist bullying, even if the advice is emanating from the Black Baroness with a healthy coating of red lipstick.

I suspect that the real key to Floella’s success was keeping schtum about Savile, Rolf, Stuart Hall and a few others who are sitting next to her in the Lords. I wonder if Floella ever met BBC comedy favourite Spike Milligan who was on record as saying that he could never accept that an Indian man was the equivalent of a white man? Changing one’s accent is not going to make any difference in the face of such theory.

The Chancellor of Exeter University, 1998-05, was the Tory Peer Robert Alexander QC. Alexander was Chair of the Bar Council 1985-86. He represented Jeffrey Archer in his successful libel case against the Star in 1987 – the case that the Star later took to appeal when new evidence emerged that Archer had perjured himself, which eventually resulted in Archer going to prison. The case hinged upon whether Archer had paid a prostitute for sex or not. The prostitute herself was not available to give evidence at Archer’s trial for perjury, having most conveniently keen killed as a result of a car crash shortly before the trial. See post ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’.  Alexander retired from the Bar in 1989 and was Chair of Nat West Bank, 1989-99.

 

Exeter also has a Royal connection, with Princess Snap’s two children, Peter and Zara Phillips, having attended the university. No wonder Princess Snap gave Hilary Satan-Scott an award for being Inspirational.

Exeter has another Royal connection as well. The authorities at Exeter University forced Professor Edzard Ernst out of his job after pressure from Carlo, because Edzard’s work showed that many complementary therapies were clinically ineffective and Edzard refused to fiddle his results (see post ‘And The Lucky Winners Are…’).

 

I have strayed a long way from Vivienne Sugar, so let me return to her.

When Viv was Chair of Consumer Focus Wales, the Board of Consumer Focus contained a few others known to this blog, such as the quango queen Dame Suzi Leather and Sukhvinder Kaur-Stubbs. I presume that Dame Suzi and Sukhvinder were Board members of the wider Consumer Focus, as opposed to Consumer Focus Wales.

Christine Farnish was a Board member and then appointed Chair of Consumer Focus in late 2010, having Chaired the Audit and Risk Committee since 2007. Christine’s career has spanned both public and private sectors. She has been Managing Director Public Policy for Barclays Group; Chief Executive, National Association of Pension Funds; Consumer Director, FSA; Consumer Director, OFTEL; and also held senior roles in Local Government. Christine has Chaired the Family and Parenting Institute and serves as a Civil Service Commissioner. She is on the Boards of ABTA and Aggregate Industries. She formerly served on the Boards of the Office of Fair Trading, ING Direct, the ASA and Papworth NHS Trust. 

Not only do the experiences of millions of people who have been systematically fleeced in various ways by the financial services suggest that Christine has not regulated the financial services in any way in any of her roles, but I doubt that she has sufficient knowledge of both the Aggregates Industry and heart and lung transplants to be making a meaningful contribution to both. Unless this really is a transplant surgeon who then became a quarryman:

Here’s Christine at work, breaking the glass ceiling:

Splitting of the slate blocks with hammer and chisel to produce roofing slates requires great skill. This process was not mechanized until the second half of the 20th century, and some slate is still produced in this way. Christine and her colleagues are working at the Dinorwic Quarry. 
Christine fancied a change after doing this for a few years:
Donor-Derived DNA Predicts Lung Transplant Rejection
Then Christine became Chair of Consumer Focus, working for Mandy, before the task of reigning in the excesses of global capitalism was handed over to Lucille at the CAB.

Mandy certainly picked them to sit on the Board of Consumer Focus. Who else was there along with Viv and Quarryman Christine but this blog’s old friend and that most excellent longstanding friend of Dafydd and the paedophile gang, Enid Rowlands, star of ELWA and the £2 million quid and wife of Huw Vaughan Thomas, Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council when the paedophile gang enjoyed themselves in Gwynedd’s children’s homes. After excelling in that role, Huw rocked up as Auditor General for Wales. Lilibet appointed him when the previous Auditor General, Jeremy Colman, was imprisoned for the possession of child porn (see previous posts). For details of Huw Vaughan Thomas’s myriad public appointments, see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’.

Enid, a psychology graduate from north Wales, began her career working with ‘long-term unemployed and disadvantaged people’. So  Enid was off to a flying start then and is one of many who’s efforts in this sphere produced absolutely no benefit for the disadvantaged people. Not that her efforts will have been designed to do that, they will have been designed to give Enid and her peers well-paid jobs and start them on their ladders to the top of the world of quangos. It worked. Enid ‘has maintained an interest in the users of public services and the importance of working closely with the voluntary sector’ and ‘has nearly 15 years of board experience and is currently on the board of the GMC, Consumer Focus, the Information Commissioner’s Office and has recently been appointed a Trustee of the National Employment Savings Trust (NEST)’. Enid has also served as a Trustee/Advisory Board Member of RNID as well as the Prince’s Trust. Enid’s husband Huw is also big in the Prince’s Trust. Enid has also been Chair of Victim Support and of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority. She had sat on the Board of S4C, on the North Wales Police Authority and on the North Wales Health Authority.

Previous posts on this blog have described the many breaches of the Data Protection Act that I have found the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board to have committed. A few days ago, someone e mailed me with much info regarding how serious the wrongdoing was and recommended that I take the matter up with the Information Commissioner. I did do that more than a year ago and the matter was never investigated. Now that I know that Enid is involved I understand why the Information Commissioner just didn’t bother to do their job or even pretend to do it.

 

Other Trustees of Consumer Focus include Cerys Furlong. Cerys is another person who is well-networked into the right crowd. In Feb 2017, Cerys became Chief Exec of Chwarae Teg, the ‘gender equality’ and ‘wimmin’s economic development’ organisation which Jane Hutt was pivotal in establishing. English readers might be interested to know that ‘Chwarae Teg’ is Welsh for ‘Fair Play’. I suggest that the organisation changes its name to ‘Llygredd a Nepotiaeth’…

The PR puff about Cerys said at the time that ‘Ms Furlong has spent over a decade working in the public, private and voluntary sector in Wales. She has been Director for Wales at the Learning and Work Institute for the last three years, and has a vast amount of experience in politics, government, research and public affairs.

Former Cardiff City Councillor Ms Furlong also holds a number of voluntary positions and is a Trustee and Vice Chair for The Bevan Foundation and a Board member at Chapter Arts Centre. Alongside her husband, Tom Furlong, she has also established several successful food and hospitality businesses in Cardiff, including The Potted Pig, Porro, The Lansdowne pub and The Grange pub.

Ms Furlong said: ‘I’m extremely excited to take up this role with Chwarae Teg at this crucial time in the organisation’s history. Throughout my career I’ve been a passionate advocate for gender equality and social justice, and my experience of working in both the private and public sector has showed me that tackling gender issues is just as important now as it was 25 years ago when the charity was first established.

With a fast-changing political and economic landscape facing us in Wales, my priority will be to continue the vital work Chwarae Teg does to improve the position of women in the workplace and in wider society, and to further raise the issues of gender equality and social justice within Welsh public life.’ 

Sandra Busby, Chair of the Board of Trustees at Chwarae Teg, said: ‘When recruiting for this role, it was critical that we found a candidate who could demonstrate an absolute commitment to tackling the core issues that Chwarae Teg exists to address. Cerys really impressed us with her hugely diverse range of commercial and public sector experience, and her knowledge of education and personal development makes her a perfect fit for the organisation.

Next year marks 25 years since Chwarae Teg was first set up. Thanks to a string of successful leaders including most recently Joy Kent, we have achieved so much in challenging attitudes towards gender equality in Wales and helping thousands of women progress in their careers. There’s still so much left to do, and we’re confident that Cerys will drive the organisation forward in achieving its vision of creating a Wales where women achieve and prosper.’

The economic situation for women, as well as men, is in most parts of Wales, grim. In swathes of Wales most of the jobs on offer are part-time minimum wage jobs. Huge numbers of people in Wales need to claim benefits on top of their wages to make ends meet. There are a number of well-paid jobs available for professional people in Cardiff, but that is where the miracle stops. The affluence of the affluent parts of Cardiff has not even stretched out into the valleys, let alone the rest of Wales. Chwarae Teg has not ‘helped thousands of women progress in their careers’, it has been of great assistance to a very small number of wimmin involved in the Labour Party in Wales, because a period at Chwarae Teg is almost obligatory if you are female and want a job in the Welsh Assembly.

 

Cerys Furlong completed a Sociology degree at Bristol University in 2000; undertook a Masters at Cardiff University, 2003-04; was employed as a Research Associate at the University of Oxford, April-Sept 2005, working on review of Initial Teacher Training in Wales, commissioned by the Welsh Assembly Gov’t. I do not know if Cerys is any relative of Professor John Furlong, the Professor of Education at Cardiff University.

Cerys was also:

Policy Officer, Nov 2005-March 2007 and then Programme Director, March 2007-March 2012 at the NIACE (National Institute of Advanced Continuing Education).

Cardiff City Councillor for Canton, May 2008-Dec 2013

Assistant Director of External Strategy at the OU, April 2012-Dec 2013

Board Member Agored Cymru, July 2013-July 2016

Director for Wales, Learning and Work Institute, Jan 2014-Jan 2017

Governor, ACT Training, Jan 2014-Jan 2018

Trustee, Bevan Foundation, Feb 2011-April 2018

RSA Fellow since Sep 2015

Trustee, Chapter Arts Centre, Sept 2015-present day. Cerys describes Chapter as ‘a multi-platform arts venue and has been at the heart of creativity in Cardiff for 40 years’

I’ve been to Chapter Arts Centre. I used to go there when I was a Trustee of WEN (Women’s Equality Network Wales), WEN liked holding events there. Chapter Arts Centre is very enjoyable if you are me or Cerys Furlong, but many Wimmin in Wales would never think of going there and would consider it very expensive and not to their tastes anyway. But I have found that the social justice and equality organisations in Wales do like a bit of organic luxury and also tend to book venues for their events that exclude the plebs.

Cerys has been or is a Board Member of Cardiff Capital Region Economy Growth Partnership.

She is also a Fellow of the British American Project, since Nov 2017: ‘The British American Project is a transatlantic fellowship of over 1,000 leaders, rising stars and opinion formers who come from a broad spectrum of occupations, backgrounds and political views.’

Cerys is obviously one of those Rising Stars but I can guarantee that they will not come from a broad spectrum of occupations, backgrounds and political views.

Throughout my time as a Trustee of WEN, I met a lot of nice, interesting people, but they were virtually all women from professional backgrounds, usually health and social care or business. Throughout that whole time, I only met one woman at a WEN event who had travelled there on the bus. She had come from Barry and was an Empowered Service User who was taking an interest in all sorts of things because she had lost her job. It was terrifically good to meet her, but she was the only person who didn’t have a car and a salary who I met throughout the whole time that I was mixing with the social justice/gender equality crowd.

WEN used to hold their Board meetings in the Chwarae Teg offices.

Cerys is Director of NIACE Cymru, ‘a charity that promotes opportunities for adults to learn and work’.

‘Sandra Busby left school without A levels but has become the spokeswoman for the contact centre industry in Wales…If you have anything to do with the contact centre industry in Wales you will probably have come across Sandra Busby. The vivacious managing director of the Welsh Contact Centre Forum was born and brought up in Cardiff. Her parents were young when they had her, the second of three girls. Her father was a chartered accountant, the youngest qualifying accountant in Wales at the time, with his own accountancy business employing 40 at its height, as well as running Cardiff’s first wine bar.

So Sandra is not from the mean streets herself then…

Besides bringing up the three children her mother had various jobs. She was a qualified hairdresser and had her own hairdressing business.

Sandra’s mum was a successful businesswoman as well as her dad…

The young Busby had a Catholic education, going to St Joseph’s Convent primary school then Our Lady’s Convent. “I was taught by some very mean nuns, but I was probably just very unlucky,” she said.

Sandra is treading very carefully here…

The experience of a private education convinced her not to send her own children to private school when the time came. “It doesn’t give you a good grounding in life to be in an all-girls school, it leaves you with a lot of things to learn when you leave school,” she said. “I wanted my children not just to have a mixed gender education but also an inclusive education. You don’t get to see all walks of life and you don’t get to meet the people that you’re going to come across in life with a private education.”

Despite her rejection of her schools she had a happy childhood growing up with two sisters, she says.

So Sandra’s family life was enough to counteract those bloody awful nuns, whom she remembers so well that she’s never going to put her own kids through it.

By her own account the schools her parents chose to send her to did not get the best out of her. I was one of those kids who could achieve without trying too hard and probably did not achieve to my potential in my school years,” she said.

Probably because those nuns killed any love of learning that Sandra had, but she’s not going to say a word. Sandra can’t afford to lose customers now that she runs call centres in south Wales and is Chair of Chwarae Teg. The Catholic Church still has a lot of clout and there is a big RC Community in Cardiff.

“So I gave up and my parents immediately said to me, you need to do something.” She went to college for a year to study business, then her father secured her an interview with a firm of solicitors.

Dad to the rescue!!!

She was all set to start a career as a legal secretary when a conversation with a friend sent her on a different course, one that would shape her life. “My best friend at the time was working in telesales at the Western Mail and South Wales Echo, earning what seemed to be a fortune in commission,” Busby said. “She said, there’s a vacancy, you should apply. I applied and got the job.

Well-connected friends came in useful when Sandra didn’t find the job that her dad lined up for her that inspiring.

Busby had found her niche. Beginning in the mid-80s she worked for a decade at the Western Mail and Echo, starting out by selling motors advertising and handling birth, marriage and death notices. It wasn’t long before she was promoted to field sales, visiting car dealers and “having to get under the car to speak to one-man businesses, which private school had not equipped me for.” From there she moved up to field sales manager, a post which in those days carried “real bottom line responsibility, you had your targets, you were also responsible for the training and recruiting.” When Wales on Sunday was launched she was made its general manager, a post which gave her a wider exposure to different aspects of the business. “Those 10 years gave me an unbelievable grounding. I never had so much fun as when I worked in newspapers,” she said.

Sandra spent years working in the media. She’ll have heard the dirt on absolutely everyone, including the dirt that no-one dared print.

Nevertheless, the arrival of her first child heralded a break. She planned to take two years off to look after the baby and had no plans to return to the Western Mail and Echo. But within three months she had been approached by the Cardiff Independent, a free newspaper of the time, to join them as a consultant. Within six months she was general manager. Through various changes of ownership and mergers she ended up working for the South Wales Argus, where she helped set up the newspaper’s website in the early 90s.

Even more years in the media, becoming increasingly well-connected.

But when the Argus itself was bought by Southern Newspapers her post was transferred to Portsmouth, and now the mother of two children she decided to take redundancy.

Sandra doesn’t know anyone in Portsmouth and will lose her place in the pecking order…

Once again a conversation with a friend led to a redirection, and she took up a job at the Cardiff and Newport Call Centre Initiative, a project set up by six public sector partners to attract call centres to south-east Wales.

Mates to the rescue again.

“The WDA’s focus at the time was to take business out of Cardiff and Newport and into the Valleys,” Busby said.

An everyday story of WDA (Welsh Development Agency) folk. Jobs with huge salaries for the spivs that ran the WDA, jobs in call centres for everyone else. Not for Sandra though obviously, she’s running the call centres.

“Cardiff and Newport wanted to make sure they got their fair share of any business that was out there.” At the time there were around 40 contact centres in Wales, a fifth of the number there are today.

So these are the thousands of opportunities for Wimmin. Jane Hutt gets a job as a Minister, the other thousands are in call centres. Being restricted in terms of how often they can go to the loo. Perhaps the Presiding Officer of the Senedd can start clocking Jane in and out when she goes for a wee. Jane will probably take the case to the European Court of Human Rights on the grounds that an Older Woman’s Dignity is at stake. Julie Morgan can join her and they could make it a class action.

One of the first things we wanted to do was set up a small employers’ forum so we understood what was needed to be successful,” she said. “We brought a lot of business into Wales. The WDA then joined the initiative and other local authorities joined.”

Bring on those call centres.

By the early 2000s there was close to full employment in Wales, punctuated only by areas of high economic inactivity in the Valleys.

Oh excuse me, where exactly did those figures come from? Full employment in Wales??? There has NEVER been full employment in Wales post-Thatcher. I lived there from 1981 onward, I remember it well… Furthermore the ‘punctuations’ in the valleys were not so much ‘punctuations’ as complete devastations, it was terrible and many areas never recovered.

There was some resistance to bringing further contact centre business into Wales, while at the same time call centres were being shut down and the work outsourced to India.

People found out what a con call centres were and call centre authorities being what they are, they’ll go wherever people can be exploited most effectively. That used to be Wales ‘with its full employment’ but now its India…

“I could see that the future had to be about protecting the jobs we had, handing the inward investment side back to the local authorities and the Welsh Government,” said Busby.

So Businesswoman Sandra was dependent upon taxpayers dosh to run her call centres.

“We decided to set up the Welsh Contact Centre Forum as an independent not-for-profit company that was a stand-alone business. We got some funding from the Welsh Government to kick-start us on the premise that it was an independent business that could give independent advice and help, not just to the Welsh Government but to all local authorities, and safeguard the jobs.”

More dosh from the Welsh Gov’t needed. This time to give ‘independent advice’ to other people who want to establish a call centre.

The year was 2008, and after years of growth the sector now had 24,000 people working in up to 160 contact centres in Wales.

This is a nightmare. The Welsh Gov’t gave Wimmin dosh to employ 24ooo people in bloody call centres.

It may be difficult to recall now, but in the years before the recession contact centres had a poor reputation, with negative stories about low pay, poor working conditions and high attrition of staff.

‘Negative stories’. I heard them as well, straight from the horse’s mouth, my friend’s daughter worked in a call centre.

“When we had zero unemployment the reputation of contact centres wasn’t great,” Busby admits.

Their reputation was bloody terrible, because the staff were treated so badly. By the way, when did this zero unemployment happen? I missed that.

“[They’ve] become more popular because people are now taking contact centre jobs far more seriously.”

Because so many people have been entirely cut out of the benefits system that they now have to take anything at all. Which was the point of forcing so many people off of benefits. They were getting fussy and refusing to work in Sandra’s call centres.

She added: “We’re one of the only industries that has seen a net gain during the recession…And indeed contact centre employment in Wales has risen 4,000 to 28,000 since 2008.

We’ve forced the buggers in there. I Daniel Blake In Sandra Busby’s Chwarae Teg Call Centre.

In any case, much of that reputation was undeserved, Busby insists.

So why aren’t you, Cerys and Jane Hutt working in the call centres then Sandra?

“Eighty per cent of my board started on phones, so the myth about no career is not right. And the pay was higher than recognised,” she said.

‘80% of your Board’. How many people are on your Board Sandra? 80% of that 24000 who were in the call centres across Wales after the Welsh Gov’t ‘invested’? No, I thought not. That Board will be you and a few of your mates or even members of your family.

It’s all about best practice, which the Forum helps companies to achieve. “We have an obligation to help companies achieve best practice where they want to. We have in the past asked companies to leave our membership because they haven’t operated what we consider best practice in terms of their people.”

How does one develop ‘best practice’ in a fucking call centre?

From the customer side, it was the large scale transfer of operations to India that was the main anxiety, one that Busby understands.

Well at least they’re adopting best practice over there. They’ve probably taken advice from Sandra’s Forum.

How the Philippines is crushing the Indian call center ...

 

“It’s not about accents or understanding. Companies weren’t looking at the cost to their brand. They weren’t getting it right in the UK, so what made them think they could move 12,000 miles away and get it right was beyond me.

If they ‘weren’t getting it right’ that suggests that Sandra’s Forum and Independent Advice weren’t very effective.

“It’s all about customer retention, and whereas the people in contact centres used to be considered back office, companies now understand those people are responsible for the brand.

I don’t think that I can bear much more of Sandra’s propaganda.

 

“A lot of money is being ploughed by the industry into making sure you as an individual have got channels that you want, whether you want a webchat or telephony. If you look at contact centres now, at some of the hi-tech blended [operations] where you’re dealing with phone calls, email chat, webchat, it’s not just voice now. Some of them are completely online.” The big thing facing the industry now, she adds, is mobile communications, “making it easy when you’re walking around a supermarket, that the apps are right so that people can contact you. The stats are staggering about the people who use their mobiles in supermarkets.” A staggering 10 billion calls are made each year in the UK to contact centres, so it’s perhaps not so surprising that the sector has continued to grow in recent years.

The potential for sweated labour is mindblowing, as Sandra has noticed.

And with many companies that outsourced to India bringing their operations back to Europe we’re now seeing Indian outsourcers coming to Europe because they don’t want to lose their clients, Busby says – and Wales is perfectly placed to pick up some of that business.

Because after 25 years of Chwarae Teg, people in Wales are still so desperate that they’ll get in those call centres.

There’s areas in Wales that could benefit from having a contact centre, but also businesses that would make a lot of savings by locating in certain areas of Wales,” she said.

Sandra has her eyes on a call centre near you…

The key drivers are population and skills, but Wales also has a great advantage when it comes to staff loyalty.

It’s not loyalty Sandra, it’s called ‘having no other choice’.

“I was talking to a chief executive of a company that has a base in Caerphilly and Bristol. The place in Bedwas has the same staff it’s had for 15 years, whereas in Bristol they’re constantly trying to replace staff.

Why ever would Bristol have such trouble getting people to remain working in a call centre for more than a decade??? Surely the residents of Clifton would give their right arms to work for Sandra and progress onto her Board?

 

The CEO of Chwarae Teg prior to Cerys Furlong was Joy Kent. ‘Wales Online’ helps out here once more, they published a feature on Joy in Sep 2016, which tells us that Joy has led Chwarae Teg’ for four years. During her tenure, Chwarae Teg ‘has helped thousands of women progress in their careers in Wales’. They’re sitting in Sandra’s call centres. Chwarae Teg has ‘delivered two EU and Welsh Gov’t funded programmes in Agile Nation 1 and Agile Nation 2′.

There is nothing agile about this moribund structure, which involves taxpayers’ money being given in great quantities to ruthless businesses to establish exploitative operations in Wales, while friends of Jane Hutt act as the middlemen.

‘Wales Online’ gives us the essential criteria for Chwarae Teg’s next CEO: ‘they will have a commercial mindset, flair and creativity and will also bring strong leadership, business development, networking and communication skills to the role. Previous experience of leading an organisation is essential.’

No real experience or qualifications necessary then. Just the ability to bullshit for Wales and preside over a load of people who haven’t had the benefit of parents and friends to set them up in business.

Joy Kent told ‘Wales Online’ that she was ‘immensely proud’ of the charidee’s achievements under her leadership and that ‘our work is critical to building a more inclusive Wales, not only for women but for the benefit of wider society and the economy’.

It’s such an inclusive Wales that it involves a small number of not very bright middle-class wimmin having a whale of a time by telling thousands of other wimmin that they are ‘helping their careers progress’ as they sit in call centres.

While discussing Wimmin’s Empowerment, it is worth mentioning that I saw someone whom I knew from WEN featured on BBC Wales News Online yesterday; it was Sarah Rees, who was the Chair of WEN when I was a Trustee. Sarah has given an interview about being unlawfully sacked from her job – because she had a baby. The BBC mentioned that the employer who unlawfully sacked Sarah was ‘a national women’s charity’. I don’t know whether it was WEN because Sarah has very carefully not named the organisation. If Sarah did name them, she would probably find that she’d never work in the Wimmin’s or Third Sector again. Jane Hutt would make sure of that.

 

 

Now for a man who I’ve been meaning to revisit on the blog for a while, Huw Lewis. Huw was a Labour Co-operative politician, the AM for Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney, 1999-16. Born in Merthyr Tydfil and brought up in Aberfan, Lewis went to Edinburgh University. He was active in the Scottish Labour Party, working for both Labour Party leader John Smith and later Donald Dewar. Lewis campaigned for a Scottish Assembly alongside Edinburgh Labour Club colleagues Douglas and Wendy Alexander and Pat McFadden. What is less publicised is that Huw Lewis also knew Jack McConnell, who was at Stirling University with my best friend from school, who, along with her husband, had her media career destroyed and came under attack from gangsters after they expressed an interest in making a film about what was happening to me in north Wales (see post ‘The Turn Of The Screw’).

Jack – now Lord – McConnell became a very, very powerful figure in the Scottish Labour Party, inexplicably so for a maths teacher and local Councillor. Jack became an MSP in 1999 and by 2001 was Scotland’s FM! Not that my friends knew Jack by then. Jack’s friendship with them and the friendships of so many others who were in their crowd at Stirling sort of melted away in the late 1980s when they found themselves under attack from all angles… See previous posts (eg. ‘Badlands’) for the names of the guilty, as well as for the names of the Scottish politicians with whom Jack did his dirty deals. Gordon Brown hated one of them but Jack had Gordon by the knackers didn’t you Jack…

After returning to South Wales, Huw Lewis worked briefly as a chemistry teacher at Afon Taf High School, before working full-time for the Labour Party. Huw was elected to the position of Assistant General Secretary of Welsh Labour and organised the campaign for the Labour ‘Yes’ Vote campaign in 1997, that lead to the creation of the Welsh National Assembly.

Huw Lewis was elected to the National Assembly for Wales in 1999, at the same time as Lord Jack was elected as an MSP. Huw has been party Whip in the Assembly, a post from which he resigned following the resignation of Alun Michael as First Secretary. Alun Michael resigned as FM as soon as the Waterhouse Report was published. Huw was appointed as Deputy Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning in October 2000 – the month after I began teacher training in Bangor – a post from which Huw resigned following the use of a landfill site in Trecatti, within his constituency, for the disposal of carcasses during the foot and mouth crisis in April 2001. Huw has resigned nearly as many times as Mandy.

Huw Lewis was re-elected in 2003 and was appointed Deputy Minister for Social Justice and Regeneration in May 2003. In the Third Assembly he was appointed Deputy Minister for the Economy and Transport on 31 May 2007 but announced to the media that due to his private opposition to One Wales coalition deal with Plaid Cymru he had been sacked on 18 July 2007. The little things were hitting each other again. On 26 June 2013, in light of the resignation of Leighton Andrews, Lewis was appointed Minister for Education and Skills. Not being a Welsh speaker, that brief was returned to FM Carwyn.

In January 2016, Lewis announced that he would leave the Assembly at the May 2016 election.

Lewis is married to his second wife Lynne Neagle, who has been the Labour AM for Torfaen since 1999. Lynne was born in Merthyr and educated at Cyfarthfa High School, Merthyr and Reading University. Neagle worked as a carer in the voluntary sector and then as a Careers Development Officer. Neagle struck gold when she landed a job as Research Assistant to the Windbag’s wife. She was then a dead cert for selection to stand as an AM in a safe Labour seat.

Lynne and Huw live in Penarth – the highly desirable part of Cardiff – near to Jane Hutt and Michael Trickey, with whom Lynne and Huw are good mates…

A quick resume here. Lynne and Huw’s pal Jane was the daughter of Top Doctor Michael Hutt, a pathologist who worked at Tommy’s. Tommy’s was heaving with Top Doctors who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring, as well as the crimes of Dafydd et al in north Wales. Dafydd had personal friends among the Top Docs at Tommy’s and the Tommy’s Sex Therapist Professor Jim Watson was up to his neck in concealing organised abuse, including that of Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts.

Hutt completed her Certificate of Qualification in Social Work at the LSE in 1972. Look at the biographies of so many of those involved in the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal as well as the people who protected them; again and again, graduates of the LSE of Jane’s vintage and older pop up.

I do not know when Hutt came to Wales, but she helped found Welsh Wimmin’s Aid and in Jan 1978 was appointed co-ordinator. I have known enough people who worked for Welsh Wimmin’s Aid to know that the organisation was complicit with organised abuse in north Wales and elsewhere. See previous posts. By 1978, business for Dafydd and John Allen in north Wales was booming, they had hit millionaire status and there were ‘children’s homes’ all over north Wales, loads of them, warehousing hundreds of children, nearly all of whom were being horrifically abused and forced into sex work. There is no way that Welsh Wimmin’s Aid could ever have missed the scale of what was going on.

Hutt will have known the appalling Jo Richardson, another Wimmin’s Rights Campaigner who occupied key positions in the Labour Party, who carefully ignored the organised trafficking of women and their children as well as the thriving business in dangerous, illegal abortions and child abductions in north Wales/Cheshire as recently as the 1980s. The Top Doctors were central to all of it and Hutt’s father knew who was involved. See post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’.

I would be interested to learn whether Jane Hutt was a useful idiot who went to Wales anyway and went into action when she arrived or whether she was sent by a higher authority…

 

 

BBC News Wales featured a Shock Horror report yesterday. A ‘Bangor University lecturer’, Gwil Sion ap Gruffudd, has conducted some research which demonstrated that a lot of the kids at Holyhead School who are entitled to free school meals won’t claim them because of their feelings of shame, a phenomenon that Gwil has termed ‘rural pride’. I do know some kids in that position, but there are so many kids at Holyhead who are living on low incomes that I’d be surprised if ‘rural pride’ is a problem there. Particularly as Holyhead is not rural.

I know Gwil. I used to know him very, very well. I was very friendly with him for some years when I worked at Bangor University, but it all ended rather sadly.

I first became friends with Gwil when he was a PhD student in the School of Healthcare Sciences at Bangor. He was being ferociously bullied by three Angels there – who had bullied his colleague out of a job previously – and they had such a bad effect on him that he ended up having to take time off. None of it was Gwil’s fault, he was treated appallingly and he asked one of my colleagues and I for help. So we arranged for him to transfer to our Dept. He was treated very differently from then on, there were a lot of supportive people around him, including two Professors.

I got to know Gwil very well and he knew exactly what was happening to me at the hands of the paedophiles’ friends; indeed he witnessed much of it. He was frank that he knew many of the people involved, that they were absolute bastards who had abused patients for years and were involved in serious crime. I knew that Gwil’s own family were all employed in the NHS. His mum had been a secretary who knew Dafydd and Lucille Hughes; his brother was an NHS manager at Ysbyty Gwynedd and his sister was a senior manager in the Welsh Ambulance Trust. Gwil told me freely that his brother and sister had virtually no qualifications but had got their jobs through their father, who worked for the Welsh Ambulance Service. Throughout the time that I knew Gwil he supplied me with a wealth of detail about the most serious criminality that he had witnessed at first hand when he worked for Gwynedd County Council, Gwynedd Social Services and the Probation Service. I heard about deaths, sexual assaults and people being fitted up in Court. Some of those involved had played a part in my own case.

Gwil also let me know that he knew what had happened to Patient F.

What I did not realise was that Gwil had extracted money and landed jobs by blackmailing people in the ‘services’ over this wrongdoing.

Gwil was very resentful of his brother and sister who did not have his ability but had been promoted to high levels in the NHS – far higher than they ever should have been – and were earning big salaries, while he was on a studentship. I didn’t realise at first how keen Gwil was to get his hands on huge quantities of dosh.

Because I knew Gwil so well, I let him read many of the documents that my lawyers obtained. We went through them together and after that he said to me ‘do you realise that you could get at least £5 million for this? You have documentary evidence of serious organised crime over 20 years in every agency with which you had contact. You have the names of leading doctors, lawyers, police officers, judges, civil servants and politicians. All of them colluded. You’ll be a millionaire if you play this right.’

I told Gwil that all I wanted after being put through 20 years of hell was to be treated fairly. He kept telling me that I should sue for a great deal of money. Gwil then started to tell me that if I sold my story I’d be famous. One day we were watching TV and he said ‘oh for God’s sake, let me contact the media, you’ll be rich.’ I said that I had no intention of ever going on daytime TV with Phil and Fern or whatever they are called.

Gwil was one of the people who provided a witness statement for my lawyers.

After this, one day Gwil rang me up terrified. He told me that Dyfed Edwards, the leader of Gwynedd County Council, had just called at his house and had threatened him. Gwil told me that Dyfed had told him that the VC of Bangor University would be ‘taken out’, that Gwil and me wouldn’t win this and when we lost, our lives would not be worth living. I took the view that Dyfed Edwards could fuck off.

A few days later Gwil received a visit from some ‘traffic police’, who once in his house produced firearms. Later that week I encountered one of the ‘traffic police’ as well, who also had a gun.

I subsequently received a call from my lawyer. She told me that Gwil had just rung her, had withdrawn his statement and had also told her that if I continued with my case, he would give evidence against me and he had already told the North West Wales NHS Trust this. My lawyer told me not to tell Gwil that she had told me about this. I never did tell him.

I was then told that Gwil had been paid to withdraw his statement and that he had given those we know and love huge quantities of information about me and everyone who was supporting me. I am also aware that at some point he accessed my e mail account and downloaded copies of probably every e mail in my in box. Thousands of them, highly confidential, including info from witnesses.

I didn’t confront Gwil about any of this, I realised that he was very dangerous and was best avoided. I began receiving info that Gwil was trying to find out where I was living – I had moved house at this point – and had been supplying those we know and love with details regarding my whereabouts, which was why people with guns and people who tried to run me off the road at speed knew where I would be.

Over the next few weeks I received e mails from Gwil asking me why I wouldn’t contact him, telling me that he was suicidal and desperately needed my help etc. I ignored them. I never saw him again.

I later discovered that Gwil had established a fraudulent charity with some associates, after dropping out of his PhD.

So imagine my surprise when I learned recently that Gwil was back at Bangor University, registered for a PhD and working as a lecturer in the School of Education no less. Furthermore, his PhD is funded by the Office of the Welsh Language Commissioner – one Meri Huws! So who funded Gwil’s first PhD studentship, the one which he strung out for years and then walked away from? The Welsh Language Board. The Chair of which when Gwil was awarded the studentship was one Meri Huws!

But Gwil has a mountain of shit on Meri haven’t you Gwil?

Gwil had even more shit on Meri once he read my documents!

Gwil, now that you have returned to the thoroughly rotten fold from which you strayed when you thought that I was going to bag millions and it might be worth being friends with me, perhaps you would like to come clean about the massive amounts of serious crime that you witnessed. Including that on the part of your mother and father as well as your brother and sister.

As well as that involving the old man whom you told me that your sister ran over and killed in Bontnewydd when she was 17 and driving illegally. Not that she ever was charged because of that helpful member of your family who was ‘high up in the Courts’.

Gwil told me and other people that he is a distant relative of Huw Daniel. Not that Gwil had a good word to say for Huw Daniel, according to Gwil, the whole family hated Daniel. On one occasion when I was discussing Huw Daniel’s corruption with Gwil, I asked Gwil if Daniel was in the pay of drug barons. Gwil cheerily said ‘no, he’s frightened of them, they kill judges as well, he wouldn’t dare mess with them in any way.’

Uncle Huw just banged up the victims of a sex trafficking gang!

If Gwil is busy chuckling away because he has all those e mails of mine and is ready to sell them to those we know and love – at a price of course – I’ll remind him of that laptop that he sold me before he went over to the Dark Side. Gwil was always flogging his second-hand stuff to me because he liked New. He flogged me an ancient laptop because he wanted a flashy new one.

Gwil forgot to clean his old laptop up once he’d pocketed my dosh. When I realised how fucking dangerous he was, I retrieved the info from his old laptop.

I’ve got the lot Gwil. All the names of those on the rent boy scene in north Wales, Chester and Cardiff. Your contacts, the Top Docs, the lawyers, the BBC and the celeb crowd, the sportsmen, all the closet gays, the whole lot. Furthermore I’ve got all the interviews that you did for the Liverpool Prison project as well. Admissions and details of the most serious crime and corruption in the Prison Service…

By the way Gwil, you still owe me £4000 quid. All that dosh that sustained you when you were too ill to work but unbeknown to me were still able to go clubbing in Chester and Cardiff. You also owe John and Della Fazey £1000. Remember that? The time that they paid your rent arrears when your old muckers at Gwynedd County Council were going to evict you?

I’ll say that for the paedophiles’ friends, they might have all been busy uniting in their attempts to kill me, but they fight tooth and nail among themselves non-stop and there’s no loyalty there. Gwil did a corrupt deal with Coleg Menai which resulted in Helen Owen, a senior manager at Coleg Menai, promising him a job before it was even advertised. Only Helen stabbed him in the back and gave the job to a Pathetic Shark who was working in the School of Healthcare Sciences, Angharad Roberts. Angharad didn’t have any of the qualifications or experience needed but Angharad had much more important things to offer. Angharad’s father was a senior police officer in North Wales; Angharad’s father had also told her to join the right choir, because the man who was a dead cert to be the next Principal of Group Coleg Llandrillo was a member of the choir and Angharad had to make friends with him. Angharad followed all the orders of the Top Cop. She did get the job and was subsequently photographed being congratulated on her outstanding work for Welsh Medium Education by Leighton Andrews, the Welsh Gov’t Education Minister. It was a close thing though, because Ian Rees, the man with whom Angharad made friends in the choir in order to get the job, didn’t become Principal of Coleg Llandrillo. That shook everyone up. But luckily there was so much Llygredd and Nepotiaeth in the system that Angharad still got her job. Which had also been promised to Gwil.

Gwil felt doubly sore because he is a relative of Ann Beynon, who is married to Leighton Andrews…

Gwil was fuming, absolutely fuming. So he then went cap in hand to that old war horse Meri who came up trumps… With her CV Meri is probably being blackmailed constantly.

Why Gwil has been foolish enough to advertise himself on BBC News Wales I cannot fathom. It is not something that any sensible person would do who has been involved with what Gwil has. But then these are a bunch of gangsters who have got away with everything for decades, they feel 100% immune…

By the way Gwil, after you put my life in danger, I took delivery of thousands more documents with many more names. Because you haven’t seen those documents, you don’t know who’s names are on there do you, so you won’t have been able to warn them all…

It’s a Rat Trap Gwil…

Newsflash: After completing this post, I noticed that a big NHS scandal had broken in south Wales. Twenty cases of babies dying and six stillbirths are being investigated by Cwm Taf Health Board. The Board confirmed it was looking at 43 cases with “adverse outcomes” over more than two years from the start of 2016. One Professor Angela Hopkins, the interim Director of Nursing for Cwm Taf, is the senior NHS manager dealing with the media. She stated that ‘We want to offer families our commitment to providing a safe service going forward’.

I know Angela Hopkins. She was the Director of Nursing for the NW Wales NHS Trust, when I was repeatedly threatened, assaulted and wrongfully arrested by the Angels and other staff of that Trust. Hopkins was one of those who wrote me rude insulting letters and refused to investigate. When Edwina Hart – who was given full details by me of Hopkins’s misconduct – abolished the NW Wales NHS Trust, Hopkins disappeared. I presumed that her services had been quietly dispensed with. Silly me. Hopkins had been given even more senior roles in south Wales. After a disaster down there, Hopkins reappeared in north Wales and was given a Chair at Bangor University. Angela, the semi-literate lying bitch, was now Professor Hopkins! When disaster hit Angela’s turf – yet again – Angela announced her retirement. But Angela didn’t retire. She formed herself into a Management Consultancy and flogged her services to the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, which was by then in special measures because of the problems which Hopkins had concealed when she was Director of Nursing for the NW Wales NHS Trust. Problems in the mental health services and maternity services. Which led to patients dying.

So Angela returned to south Wales after that. And now at least 26 babies have died. As ever Angela is offering her commitment to a safe service going forward. Meanwhile, evidence of dangerous staff and patient harm/deaths will be destroyed and witnesses will be intimidated. No matter how much Angela offers her commitment going forward, patients will be personally met with extreme aggression and hostility and there will be no resolution. It will be blamed on them. It was their hostility that was the problem. Or their lack of trust. Or their complaints. Somehow, it will be the patients’ fault.

Angela has conceded that there is a ‘staff shortage’ at Cwm Taf. There was one in north Wales as well, because no-one wants to work for Angela. In north Wales at least two Angels killed themselves when Angela was running the shop at the NW Wales Trust. Both Angels left suicide notes naming senior managers and Angels who had destroyed their lives. One Angel in his suicide note – he was a male midwife at Ysbyty Gwynedd – said that such terrible things were happening at the hospital that no-one would ever believe it. At the time, Angela’s boss was CEO Martin Jones.

Martin is now the man responsible for investigations across the whole of the Wales NHS. Martin was the man who destroyed CCTV footage of an Angel screaming abuse at me, refusing to treat me and threatening me. Martin had me unlawfully arrested repeatedly.

Twenty six dead babies. And it’s Martin and Angela in charge once more.

The Cwm Taf Health Board covers 300,000 people living in the south Wales valleys, with maternity services at Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil and the Royal Glamorgan Hospital in Llantrisant.

One of my friends who lives near Merthyr had her own baby down there about six years ago. She told me that all the mothers were telling each other to avoid one of the Cwm Taf hospitals for their births. Because it was dangerous and women had been mistreated there, but the Top Doctors were denying that there was a problem. So someone obviously decided to employ Angela in the face of those mothers warning each other…

It will have happened when this man was Health Minister:

Mark Drakeford - National Assembly for Wales.jpg

When he was a social worker his colleagues ran a paedophile ring; when he worked as an academic at Cardiff University his colleagues concealed organised abuse and patient harm; his 31 year old son was jailed for a violent rape last week. And he’s probably going to be the next FM of Wales.

What price the Well-being of Future Generations Act now suckers?

And The Lucky Winners Are…

Yesterday the winners of the 2018 Nobel Prize for Medicine were announced: James P. Allison, Professor of Immunology at the University of Texas’s MD Anderson Cancer Centre and Tasuku Honjo, Professor of Immunology at Kyoto University, Japan. Every media report that I have read/heard since they were declared the winners has discussed these two ‘cancer researchers’ and emphasised how their Cancer Research has paved the way for revolutionary new Cancer Therapies which have Saved Thousands Of Lives. Some of the accounts have also talked about Allison being inspired to Cure Cancer as a result of his mum dying of lymphoma when he was 10. Reporting the work of Allison and Honjo accurately would have made a rather less exciting story for the many millions of people who are not biologists.

Allison and Honjo are immunologists who have been working on a highly specific aspect of immunology since the 1980s. It is, if one is an immunologist, a very interesting and exciting area of immunology, but it is nothing like the media portrayals. Neither was Allison inspired to become America’s own Dr Finlay when his mum died. In Allison’s own words ‘I’m a basic scientist. I didn’t get into these studies to cure cancer, I wanted to understand how T cells work’. Which is what he has done. The story about a bereaved child wanting to save the world is a very obvious concoction, because if the media had simply reported the science, the vast majority of people would have no idea at all of what any of it meant and they would not be sufficiently ‘inspired’ to trawl through the text necessary to understand it. The sad reality is that when people like me talk about the sort of work for which Allison and Honjo have won this Nobel, people begin to drop off to sleep. The media friendly tale relating to Honjo is that of a man approaching Honjo on the golf course, shaking him by the hand and thanking him for curing his cancer. So someone on a golf course – if indeed the story is even true – recognised a Japanese biologist who is unknown outside of immunology, as he teed off and thanked him for saving his life. HOW he knew that the Japanese scientist saved his life is a conundrum, because the Many Life Saving Drugs which have resulted from Allison’s and Honjo’s work have, er, not actually been developed yet.

There are drugs based on the work of Allison and Honjo at clinical trials stage, but clinical trials take many, many years before drugs actually arrive in the clinic and the vast majority of them do not make it that far. Read the small print with regard to the Life Saving Drugs under discussion – of the very small number which have been developed, ‘significant side effects’ have been a persistent problem and the proudest boast is that there is ONE person who is still alive 18 years after the trial. One person is not statistically significant…

In the words of Professor Charles Swanton, Cancer Research UK’s chief clinician and a senior scientist at the Francis Crick Institute in London: ‘Thanks to work from Allison and Honjo, patients now have real hope, with over a third of patients deriving long-term benefit and even cures from such therapies.’ This is Cancer Research UK’s best PR – ‘hope’, ‘over a third deriving long terms benefits’. ‘Even cures’? Er no, not yet Charlie and you know it. Furthermore, in this context Swanton is only talking about one form of cancer – metastatic melanoma. Swanton stated that ‘the discoveries had been transformational for understanding the potential of the human immune system to control or even eradicate tumours and blood cancers’. ‘UNDERSTANDING THE POTENTIAL‘. It’s great if you’re an immunologist, but this is not a Medical Miracle Which Has Cured Cancer.

There are reasons why this Nobel Prize has been surrounded by even more dishonest hype that usual. One of those reasons is the appearance of a blog which has named a number of those with links to these Nobel Prize winners as having been involved in large scale research fraud and the most shocking misconduct while Allison and Honjo were engaged in their transformational research in the 1980s and 90s. See eg. posts ‘A Cause Close To Our Hearts’, ‘I Don’t Believe It!’, ‘A Trabant That Wants To Be A Ferrari’, ‘Oh Lordy, It’s CR UK!’, ‘Reports of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’,  ‘Apocalypse Now’, ‘Interesting Facts’ and ‘Now Then…’                      ‘

Another reason is the enormous investment that various Gov’ts, including the UK Gov’t, have made in Cancer Research in recent years. The reason for this investment, certainly on the part of the British Gov’t, has been the dreadful outcomes of cancer patients in the UK. There is yet another report out this morning – with regard to cancer patients, the UK has poor diagnosis, poor access to treatment and people are dying earlier and at a greater rate than in many other European countries. On a global basis, progress in developing effective cancer therapies has slowed down so considerably that the Top Docs are looking a bit hopeless after all those decades of promises. So More Money is required. Not simply an admission that en masse research fraud and drug companies playing fast and loose with the results from clinical trials has remained unchecked for decades and is causing havoc.

Allison and Honjo are not based in the UK, but their field of research is international and there is much cross-fertilisation between them, their teams and people based in the UK.

One of those quoted in the media reports confirming what an all round great guy and wonderful harmonica player James Allison is, was Prof Sergio Quezada of UCL. Quezada, a graduate of Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, carried out his post-doc work with Allison in the US from 2004. In November 2011, Quezada joined the UCL’s Cancer Institute as Head of the Immune Regulation and Tumour Immunotherapy group. Quezada was a Cancer Research Institute fellow, 2005-08 and has recently been in receipt of a CR UK Career Development Fellowship. Since 2006, Quezada has been a young investigator member of the Millennium Nucleus on Immunology and Immunotherapy of the Chilean Ministry of Planning and has served as an external evaluator for the Chilean National Science and Technology Research Fund. UCL’s website tells us that data obtained from the studies carried out by Quezada’s research group ‘will not only inform the basic understanding of the immune response to malignancies but, in the context of the UCL Cancer Institute, will be used as a platform for the development of novel translational strategies in the clinic.’ So UCL could really benefit from this Nobel Prize if they play their cards right…

My posts ‘More Dogs That Didn’t Bark’ and ‘You Know I’m No Good…’ discussed how very helpful The London Clinic, some ‘independent experts’ of Top Doctors and then the British Gov’t, were to the Chilean mass murderer and torturer Augusto Pinochet when he arrived in London for surgery on his bad back in 1998, but found himself detained in The London Clinic under an international arrest warrant which had been obtained by a Spanish magistrate with the intention of extraditing Pinochet to stand trial for human rights abuses on Spanish citizens. Sergio Quezada is Chilean and retains excellent links with Chile. Pinochet remained as Commander-in-Chief of the Chilean Army until 1998. He was Senator for Life of Chile, 1998-2002.

He shut down parliament, suffocated political life, banned trade unions, and made Chile his sultanate. His government disappeared 3,200 opponents, arrested 30,000 (torturing thousands of them) … Pinochet’s name will forever be linked to the Desaparecidos, the Caravan of Death and the institutionalized torture that took place in the Villa Grimaldi complex.’ – Thor Halvorssen, President of the Human Rights Foundation, National Review. 

 

A brief look at UCL’s Cancer Institute’s webpages informs us that the Cancer Institute has collaborations with many who have been named on this blog as having done things that they should not have done. The Cancer Institute has a major collaboration with CR-UK. In 2015 CR-UK gave a £5 million Centres Network Accelerators Award to fund the UCL’s Cancer Research UK Centre involvement in a new initiative in cancer immunology and immunotherapy, building a network across various Cancer Centres in London. This will be led by Professor Henning Walczak, Scientific Director of the Cancer Research UK- UCL Centre and Professor of Cancer Biology at the UCL Cancer Institute.

The Network which the Centres Network Accelerators Award will accelerate consists of UCL, UCL Hospitals, the Royal Free Hospital, the Francis Crick Institute, King’s College London, Barts Cancer Institute, the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Institute of Cancer Research. Sergio Quezada was named as the Scientific Co-lead on the Cancer Immunotherapy Accelerator Award.

To summarise: Sergio’s former boss has just received the 2018 Nobel Prize for medicine. In 2015, Sergio, who was by then working at UCL, bagged £5 million from CR-UK to fund a line of research stemming directly from Sergio’s work with his former boss, yesterday’s Nobel prize winner. During 2016-17, this blog exposed many of Sergio’s colleagues in CR-UK as well as others as having been involved with serious research fraud and misconduct; I named people from Barts, the Royal Marsden and the Institute of Cancer Research in particular as participating in fraud in cancer research.

So this was a very fortuitous Nobel Prize for CR-UK and a number of institutions that were publicly disgraced in previous years with regard to their ‘cancer research’.

 

The current Director of the Bart’s Cancer Institute and lead of the Centre for Molecular Oncology is Nick Lemoine, Professor at Queen Mary University of London, who was appointed Director of Bart’s Cancer Institute in April 2004. Lemoine was educated at Abingdon School, 1971-76 before studying medicine at Bart’s, 1977-83. 

Abingdon is an impressive independent school in Oxfordshire, although parts of it sound rather like the public school satirised by Monty Python, in which boys are caught rubbing oil into the School Cormorant. In 1963, to mark the Quartercentenary of Abingdon School’s re-foundation, the Big Schoolroom was re-ordered as the Grundy Library (opened by HRH Ma’am Darling), together with erection of further buildings east of the Science Wing, the whole becoming known as Big School. In 1980, the Amey Theatre and Arts’ Centre was opened and the Sports Centre opened in 1984. Mercers Court was opened in 1994 by the Chancellor of Oxford University and Visitor of Pembroke College (which has historical connections with Abingdon School), Baron Woy Jenkins of Hillhead, a man who concealed much wrongdoing on the part of the Top Doctors, including the organised abuse of vulnerable people (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’). Woy died in 2003, but Woy was very big mates with someone who is still with us:

Tony Blair crop.jpg

 

One of Woy’s fellow travellers in the Gang Of Four is loathed by the whole planet (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’), except for Top Doctors who remain deeply loyal to him and who have let him remain in their societies, which is very wise of them in view of the amount of dirt that he has on some of the biggest names in medicine:

Many Old Abingdonians have reached positions of influence. One of them who is just four years older than Nick Lemoine is Lord Francis Maude, who was Tory MP for North Warwickshire, 1983-92 and for Horsham, 1997-15. Maude was on the Gov’t front bench for 25 years. In recent years his posts have included: Chairman of the Conservative Party, 2005-07; Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General, 2010-15 and Minister of State for Trade and Investment, 2015-16, under PM David Cameron. Francis Maude is a criminal barrister, who before he became an MP was a Tory Councillor on Westminster Council and party to the illegal activities of Dame Shirley Porter when she led the Council. In 1984, Maude was appointed as PPS to Sir Peter Morrison in the Dept of Employment. Morrison was at the time abusing kids in care in north Wales and elsewhere.

Whilst he was in the Shadow Cabinet Maude was a non-executive Director of Jubilee Investment Trust plc, which held 21% of US porn star Jill Kelly’s DVD business. He was also Chair of Mission Marketing Group which advertised for Playboy and was Director of a company which profited from sub-prime mortgages.

Francis Maude extolled the virtues of family values.

Francis Maude had a brother Charles, who died from HIV/AIDS in 1993, after becoming infected with HIV quite early on in the AIDS epidemic among gay men of the 1980s. Charles Maude was involved with London Lighthouse and supporting people with HIV from the mid-1980s. While Francis Maude went along with Thatcher’s homophobic nonsense and Section 28, he was well aware of the reality and he knew that many of those dying of HIV/AIDS were former kids in care who had been forced into sex work by gangs like Dafydd’s, while they were in care.

See post ‘Disgusting Of Tunbridge Wells And A Few Equally Disgusting Others’ for more details on Francis Maude and his circles.

 

Could a Nobel Prize have possibly been won on the the playing fields of Abingdon?

The Old Abingdonian ties (Griffen and Stripes)

 

 

And here’s the Abingdon Cormorant:

  • Double-crested Cormorant | Audubon Field Guide

 

When Nick Lemoine was a medical student at Bart’s that institution was still very much run by mates and umbrellas of Dafydd’s. Dafydd’s mate Professor Linford Rees, the dad of 1970s sex symbol Angharad Rees, led the first professorial Department of Psychological Medicine at Bart’s. Rees was parked at Bart’s from 1996 onwards, throughout the duration of the Waterhouse Inquiry. See post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ for details of the extensive network of Linford and his celebrity friends and relatives.

 

The website of Bart’s Cancer Institute still lists Professor Sir Nicholas Wright MD PhD DSc FRCS FRCP FRCPath FMedSci as the lead in their  Centre for Tumour Biology and as being a Fellow of the Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College. We are told that for 2012-2017, Nick Wright was funded by a £560,547 CR UK Programme grant. Nick Wright has occupied some of the most senior positions in CR UK for many years, including that of Head of the Histopathology Unit at CR UK. Wright’s wiki is still stating that he has been Warden of Bart’s and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry since 2001. Nick Wright was the Head and Prof of the Dept at Royal Postgraduate Medical School/Hammersmith Hospital when I did my MSc there in 1986-87. He was overtly racist in a good old fashioned ‘I hate the bastards’ way, none of your just being a bit un-PC for our Nick; he punched a technician in a Top Docs vs Technicians rugby match for being a pleb who had the temerity to tackle the Head of Dept and Prof; I was told repeatedly that Wright and his colleagues had committed major research fraud; and an academic from Liverpool who spent a year working with Nick Wright and his team with a view to a long term collaboration walked away saying that Wright et al were ‘a bunch of crooks’ and that he wasn’t going to touch them. Since I began this blog I have been told that Dafydd et al were in contact with Hammersmith while I was a student of Wright’s and that a few people at Hammersmith did very nicely out of agreeing to keep quiet about what was happening to me at the hands of Dafydd et al, who unlawfully arrested and imprisoned me in the middle of that MSc.

I note that Nick Wright did his initial training at Durham/Newcastle-upon-Tyne University, the stronghold of the paedophile gang in the north east, which supplied staff and children to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales for many years. See previous posts. The Bastard Of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Lord John Walton, served as one of Dafydd’s biggest umbrellas for many years, including in Walton’s capacity as: 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 (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’). Professor Eric Sunderland, a well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend, had been summoned down from his senior position at Durham University to become Principal of UCNW (Bangor University) when Dafydd et al sent up a Paedophiles In Distress Flare in 1984, just two years before I began the MSc at Hammersmith.

Readers can discover more about Nick Wright and his mates’ activities by reading previous posts.

Guess who worked at RPMS/Hammersmith Hospital as an Imperial Cancer Research Fund Clinician Scientist, 1989-96? Nick Lemoine! Better still, Nick Lemoine worked for the ICRF under Sir Walter Bodmer, when Bodmer and the ICRF became embroiled in the massive 1990 Bristol Cancer Centre/Clair Chilvers research fraud scandal which involved a friend and former colleague of Dr Tony Francis ie. Dr Peter Mcguire and resulted in the (presumed) suicide of Professor Tim McElwain. See posts ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’.

Nasty business wasn’t it Prof Lemoine? Never mind, I see that you’ve Moved On!

In an interview given by Nick in which he remembers his happy days working with Walter Bodmer, Nick remembers that Bodmer ‘asked me what my ‘big challenge’ was going to be – to which I replied: “Defining the causes of pancreatic cancer and coming up with a treatment.” Now, 20 years later, we have the tools to apply our knowledge of genetics and molecules to the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, offering patients hope of containing the disease so that it does not spread around the body.’

There’s more hope for those ever desperate patients then! They’ll need it if they develop pancreatic cancer, by the time that it’s diagnosed the patient usually only has months to live. It’s a nasty one. At Hammersmith in 1986-87, the message was that if you develop a cancer, you really don’t want it to be pancreatic cancer. If you’re male, testicular cancer is not too traumatic, it has a very high survival rate. Which is why Mike Peters, the rock star who lives in north Wales, has served as such a rich stream of good PR for the Top Docs and butchers of that region, who’s clinical outcomes are some of the worst in Europe. Mike Peters of ‘The Alarm’ plays another gig to say thank you to the Top Docs who Saved His Life! I can understand why Mike is grateful to still be with us, but it may not have had a great deal to do with the excellence of the Top Docs of north Wales. Whoever treated Mike would have had to have been as bad as Dafydd to have not seen him through that. It’s difficult to get it wrong Mike, the testes are outside of the abdominal cavity, at a safe distance, so the cancer doesn’t metastasize. Not unless you are very, very unlucky.

Nick mentions in his interview that after spells of working in different hospitals, he returned to Bart’s, ‘where it all started for me. I never expected to come back here, but it’s a pleasure as we’re blessed with a fantastic new cancer hospital which has great facilities for both research and patient care. Bart’s medical school is also really committed to pancreatic cancer and we have recruited some real stars to focus on new treatments for this disease.’

So Nick didn’t expect to return to Bart’s – I wonder why? There will also no doubt be a few interesting reasons as to why Nick did return to Bart’s in 2004 from his position as Director of the CR UK Medical Oncology Unit at Imperial. The Imperial College which by that time had merged with Hammersmith Hospital as a result of Lord Brian Flowers’ political muscle and Flowers’ desire to transform Imperial into something earth shattering and of course world leading. The Lord Brian Flowers who concealed research fraud, organised abuse and much other wrongdoing in the various institutions which made up London University. See previous posts. The Lord Brian Flowers who came from Swansea and who remained loyal to his old muckers in Wales…

One also wonders why and how Bart’s got the fantastic new cancer hospital to which Nick refers. Particularly as Bart’s was earmarked for closure for many, many years, until well into the 1990s and the Top Docs of Bart’s did a great deal of loud squealing and called in global reinforcements to keep themselves in business. John Smith, then the Leader of the Labour Party died when Bart’s were unable to revive him after that heart attack of his in July 1994. The Top Doc who found that poor old Smith couldn’t be helped was the very same Top Doc who just three weeks previously, had shown Smith around Bart’s and explained that it would be a great pity if Bart’s or indeed any part of Bart’s were to close (see previous posts). In much the same way that Dafydd told me on the phone in 1987 that it would be a ‘great pity’ if ‘you were to be detained in Risley Remand Centre’. I just presumed that Dafydd had gone completely nuts because I was living in Leicester at the time and had committed no such crime that could ever have landed me in Risley Remand Centre. Brown heard the call and said ‘he’s trying to threaten you’. Weeks later I was arrested after Dafydd et al tried to frame me for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’. The only reason why I didn’t end up in Risley was that Sgt Morgan in Bangor Police Station and Jeff Crowther, a nursing officer at Ysbyty Gwynedd, didn’t tell as many lies as they were required to tell. Documents now in my possession demonstrate that Dafydd et al had the whole thing planned months in advance and that Risley Remand Centre, David Ewart of the Mental Health Act Commission, Ysbyty Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authority were all fully on board with the plan. See previous posts.

Fings Break you see, as John Smith soon discovered.

So where were the pastures new for which Nick Lemoine headed after he had graduated from Bart’s? Nick went to the Welsh National School of Medicine, Cardiff University! He was a lecturer in pathology there, Aug 1985-Dec 1988. Which was when my friend Clare Cheek was a student and then a house officer at the Welsh National School of Medicine and when we used to visit each other! Or at least Clare was my friend until it was made very clear to her that she had better stop listening to what was happening to me in north Wales if she wanted to continue in her career as a Top Doc…

I have detailed in previous posts the very great wrongdoing which prevailed at the Welsh National School of Medicine during the years when Nick worked there. Much of the wrongdoing stemmed from the key role that the Welsh National School of Medicine and the wider Cardiff University were playing in concealing the crimes of the paedophile Labour MP for Cardiff West and Speaker of the House George Thomas – who in 1983, thanks to his friend Thatch, became Viscount Tonypandy (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’) – as well as the crimes of Dafydd et al in north Wales.

Surely this must be a coincidence, but it was just before Aug 1985 that I began approaching politicians about the wrongdoing of the Top Docs in north Wales. So Nick rocked up in Cardiff right on cue! I don’t know about Nick Lemoine, but here are a just a few of the people who did know about me and about the many crimes of George Thomas and Dafydd’s gang:

Not that I had any idea at all that I was so famous at the time…

 

When Nick Lemoine first went to work at Cardiff, Professor Sir William Asscher was still working as a nephrologist there. In Dec 1986 Prof Ollie Brooke of St George’s Hospital Medical School was imprisoned for the possession of child porn. Ollie was a big name in the pan-European paedophile/trafficking ring of which Dafydd et al were a part and gosh did the Paedophiles In Distress send out an alert. The head of the Dean of St George’s rolled and he was replaced by William Asscher, who was called to London to help out those High Society traffickers and to take over as Dean of St George’s… Not that Asscher ever waved goodbye to his pals in Wales. He continued to keep a home in south Wales and he returned to live there full time when he retired from St George’s.

By the time that Nick left Cardiff in Dec 1988, I had worked with his pals at Hammersmith and for the Cancer Research Campaign labs at Nottingham University, where there was yet more research fraud in progress – in collaboration with a US drugs company to be precise – and I was working for the Cancer Research Campaign at the University of Surrey, for Prof Vincent Marks. Vincent’s brother was Dr John Marks, the then President of the BMA, who was locked in battle with Ken Clarke and the Tory Gov’t. They really hated each other, but as everyone concerned was concealing the crimes of Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring, it all ended in stalemate. Nick Lemoine knows some of the people whom I knew at Surrey!

After Nick left Cardiff, he joined the crowd at Hammersmith and Sir Walter Bodmer. In 1997 Nick became Director of CR UK Medical Oncology at Imperial College; Imperial by that time encompassed Hammersmith…

In 2004 Nick felt the call of Bart’s and their fantastic new cancer hospital.

Nick went from strength to strength once he was back at the once-doomed Bart’s. He was Clinical Director for the Central and East London Comprehensive Local Research Network and the NIHR Clinical Research Network, 2007-14, which included three biomedical research centres ie. UCL, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital. UCL and GOSH were both institutions which concealed organised abuse.

Nick Lemoine was the Clinical Director of the Cancer Clinical Academic Unit at Bart’s, July 2008-Sept 2012. In Jan 2012 Nick became the Chair of the Challenge Awards Panel for the NIHR i4i Programme, a post in which he remains at present. In July 2012 he was appointed Director of Research and Development for the Cancer and Surgery Clinical Academic Group at Bart’s, another post in which he remains. In May 2014, Nick became Medical Director of the clinical Research Network, yet another post in which he remains. Since 2015 Lemoine has been a Visiting Professor and Consultant Executive of the Academy of Medical Sciences at Zhenghon University, China.

Since April 2015 Nick Lemoine has Chaired the Board of Trustees at the Medical Research Foundation; he has been a Trustee since 2008. Nick was appointed as Chair of the MRF by the MRC. The Chief Executive of the MRC when Nick was appointed as Chair of the MRF was Professor Sir John Savill. Savill is a nephrologist – he will have known William Asscher – who is an Honorary Consultant Physician and Nephrologist with the Lothian University Hospitals Division. He is a member of the Lothian Health Board and Chairs its Service Redesign Committee. Savill was Head of the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine and a Vice Principal of the University of Edinburgh. Savill’s research interest is in immunology and he completed his PhD on this in 1981 – at Hammersmith Hospital. Savill’s salary as Chief Exec of the MRC was between £170,000 and £174,999.

The Chair of the MRC – and who still is Chair – when Nick Lemoine was given that job as Chair of the MRF was Donald Brydon. Brydon knows plenty about medical research, being Chair of the London Stock Exchange. He is not even a Chair of the London Stock Exchange who has done a stint at Hammersmith Hospital. No, Brydon is a maths graduate of Edinburgh University. When he was at Edinburgh Brydon was Chairman of the University’s Conservative Association alongside Malcolm Rifkind as Secretary, with whom Brydon had been at school ie. at George Watson’s College. Brydon was also elected President of Edinburgh University Union. Brydon remained in Edinburgh to teach at the University for several years after graduation. So he’ll know a Gordon Brown who was an undergrad at Edinburgh, then a PhD student and was also elected as Rector. The Gordon who was PM, 2007-10. 

In 1977 Brydon began a 20-year career working at Barclay’s during which time he became Chairman and Chief Executive of the company’s investment arm, BZW Investment Management. From 1997 to 2002 Brydon was Chief Executive Officer at AXA Investment Managers SA. 

Brydon has also been Chairman of Royal Mail, Smiths Group, the London Metal Exchange, Amersham plc, Taylor Nelson Sofres, ifs School of Finance and EveryChild. Brydon has been a Director of Allied Domecq and Scottish Power.

EveryChild was an international development charity based in the UK, which dealt with children’s rights in particular the protection and aid for children growing up without parental care or family. In 2014, EveryChild worked with many of its former local partners and other grassroots organisations to create Family for Every Child; a global alliance of 27 local organisations working together to help vulnerable children and families. So Donald Brydon was tasked with keeping such kids out of the hands of trafficking gangs etc…

Who ever decided that a senior manager of Barclays would know anything about what is needed to achieve that?

 

Brydon resigned from the Royal Mail Group in 2015 to become Chairman of the London Stock Exchange Group. As Chairman of the Royal Mail, Brydon was paid an annual salary of £200,000 for working two days a week. Whilst in office for a period of six years Brydon oversaw the privatisation of the 499-year-old institution.Which I seem to remember was an idea conjured up by Mandy. Before Mandy and Miranda even try to explain Brydon’s salary when he was Chairman of Royal Mail, perhaps they’d like to tell me why, when Brydon was Chairman and at previous times as well, letters to me were opened before they went through my letter box. Letters from my lawyers who were handling my case against the North West Wales NHS Trust to be precise. It is a criminal offence to interfere with the Royal Mail, posties can be imprisoned for doing that and furthermore I have been told recently that some staff of the Royal Mail were/are required to sign the Official Secrets Act, such are the (alleged) precautions re intercepting the mail.

Furthermore, many years ago when I was living in Harringay in 1987, studying at Hammersmith and under attack by the north London gang linked to Dafydd’s, there was a spate of interfering with my mail. At one point, someone sent me my birth certificate through the post and that was one of the items which disappeared. I have always wondered whether a few people have been married in my name or whether a drugs mule is in possession of a passport and claims to be me. Having said that, Dafydd has been doing fake IDs for ages and as for criminal records, well my PNC was unlawfully altered to show convictions against my name for offences that I was never even charged with, so I won’t lose any sleep over that birth certificate. All to be expected by someone who has tangled with the Top Doctors.

The other letter that definitely was intercepted, read and forwarded onto me was back in 1988. I had applied for a research job in neuroscience in the Vet Science Dept at Edinburgh University – John Savill was probably running the place at the time – and their reply to me had gone for a little walk…

Donald Brydon is also Chairman of the Sage Group.

The only thing linked to medical research that Brydon has any knowledge of at all is how to create a demand for and market pharmaceutical products, in which he will have excelled at Amersham plc, which in 1982 was the first privatisation carried out by Thatch. Ah – but that is now what Gov’ts idea of medical research is all about isn’t it…

When I worked in biomedical research, a great many people were keen to get jobs with Amersham International, as it was then called. It was a magnet because the salaries were much higher than in universities. But then people would find that in their role as research scientists at Amersham, it wasn’t the science which was prioritised…

 

The website of the Medical Research Foundation tells us: ‘We exist to advance medical research, improve human health and change people’s lives’ and that ‘The Medical Research Foundation is an independent charitable foundation. Formed by the MRC, we grow and nurture people and ideas wherever we see research opportunities with great potential.’ The MRF also boasts that the heritage of the MRF ‘is remarkable: scientists associated with the MRC have received a total of 29 Nobel Prizes.’

Well as the whole process is rigged and simply involves people doing favours for their mates and everything possible to ensure that the Nobel Prizes are given to the people who’s work has already been identified – on the basis of previous nepotism and cronyism – to be worthy of investment by the MRC and its friends, that is hardly surprising is it.

Nick has served as Chair of the Clinical Training and Career Development Panel at the Medical Research Council, and as Vice-Chair of the MRC Stratified Medicine Expert Panel. He has previously served as Chair of the MRC Stem Cell Strategic Grant and Fellowship Panels and has been a member of the MRC’s Molecular & Cellular Medicine Board. Lemoine chairs scientific advisory and grant award committees for a number of medical charities, including Diabetes UK, Prostate Cancer UK, Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund and Pancreatic Cancer UK.

Nick Lemoine was elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2006 and as a Foreign Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineers in 2017.

As well as Nick Lemoine’s mate Sergio Quezada, Allison’s former post-doc, someone else was all over the media commenting on the richly deserving Nobel Prize winners ie. one Professor Dan Davis. Dan Davies wrote the book ‘The Beautiful Cure’, ‘which describes the work which led to this Nobel Prize’. Yet the work is not a ‘cure’, beautiful or otherwise. Dan himself admitted of the ‘cure’: ‘It doesn’t work for everyone but lives have been saved…I think this is just the tip of the iceberg – many more medicines like this are on the horizon’. Yet no-one is sure IF lives have been saved; one person has lived a long time after taking The Beautiful Cure, a number of other people ‘benefited’ but suffered ‘significant’ side effects and that was the best that the much hyped PR could boast of. Never mind, if Dan wrote that book, it  suggests that he had plenty invested in The Beautiful Cure and he’ll be delighted to have heard who won the Nobel.

Who is Dan Davis? He’s the Professor of Immunology at Manchester University and is currently the Director of Research in the Manchester Collaborative Centre for Inflammation Research. Unusually, Dan did not train as a Top Doctor or a biomedical scientist, he is a physicist. After obtaining his PhD in physics at Strathclyde University, Glasgow, Dan began studying the immune system at Harvard University with Jack Strominger.

Prior to working at Manchester University, Dan Davis was the Head of the Immunology Section at Imperial College London. So somehow this physicist found himself in a senior position with the contingent from Hammersmith who had metamorphosed into Global Leaders under Lord Brian Flowers… Brian Flowers was of course a physicist himself who spent years of his career at Manchester as well as Imperial. As well as being Rector of Imperial, 1973-85 and VC of London University, 1985-90, Brian Flowers was VC of Manchester University, 1994-2001.

Dan Davis did his first degree – in physics – at Manchester University. He graduated in 1992. I think that Dan knows or used to know my former neighbour and landlord’s daughter, Gwen Parry-Jones! Gwen was doing her degree in physics at Manchester at the same time as Dan. I blogged about Gwen and her family in my post ‘Tan yn Llyn’. I and my friends lived in Gwen’s parents’ house  on Anglesey for the years when Dafydd et al first declared war on us. Dr D.G.E. Wood lived down the road, the village was full of Top Docs and Angels and Gwen’s dad Gwilym Parry-Jones was formerly a lecturer at UCNW when the institution was run by Dafydd and the trafficking gang. Gwen’s younger brother Adrian is a Top Doctor at Manchester University! I have been told that Gwen’s family were leaned upon by the Top Doctors and were duly rewarded when they succumbed…

Gwen was featured on BBC News Wales online today! Gwen is now the Executive Director of Horizon, who are responsible for the Wylfa Nuclear Power Station Project on Anglesey and she was featured on the BBC as an Inspirational Role Model to girls and wimmin! The girls whom Gwen is inspiring might be interested to know why Gwen did a degree in physics. It was because she did so badly in her A levels that she couldn’t take up the place that she had been offered at Manchester to do medicine. Her dad Gwilym rang them up and begged, but no, they were not going to have Gwen with those very poor A levels. So Gwilym – who was also a physicist – rang the physics Dept in Manchester and because no-one wanted to do physics, there was lots of spare places and Gwen was in!

What a pity that Dafydd hadn’t illegally imprisoned me by the time that you did your A levels Gwen! Manchester Medical School would have let you in then, no problem. Never mind, you and your family benefited from it in subsequent years, so you didn’t miss out too badly.

 

Predators: Much as I am enjoying exposing you all online, indeed I haven’t had such a laugh for years, I think that you ought to wake up to the fact that this is not going to go away. You have all been very, very naughty and appearing on the BBC and giving yourselves Nobel Prizes is not going to resolve this. You are in very, very deep doo doo. I’m not quite sure when Krakatoa will erupt, but believe me it will sooner or later.

 

Gwen’s mate Dan Davis spent the years of the Waterhouse Inquiry as a post doctoral Research Fellow at Harvard. Very wise Dan. ‘I know nuzzing’. Then Dan returned to the embrace of Dafydd’s associates at Imperial and reached the very top…

Professor Dan – his research interest is in Natural Killer Cells – also known as T cells:

 

Alternate

 

Dan is also Visiting Professor at Imperial College. The Manchester Collaborative Centre for Inflammation Research – the research institute of which Dan is Director – is funded by the University of Manchester, AstraZeneca and GSK.

Professor Dan became a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2011. He currently holds a Wellcome Trust Investigator Award. He is also the author of a popular-level science book ‘ The Compatibility Gene’ (Penguin, 2014) which was picked by Bill Bryson as a Guardian Book of the Year. Don’t tell me that Bill Bryson knows what happened to me at the hands of Dafydd et al as well… Are you a specialist in Natural Killers as well Mr Bryson?

Bill Bryson is an American journo who loves Little Britain so much that he has been resident here for many years. He first visited the UK in 1973 and decided to stay after landing a job working in a psychiatric hospital – the now defunct Holloway Sanatorium in Virginia Water, Surrey. Bill met an Angel there, Cynthia, whom he married in 1975. Jesus, perhaps Bill Bryson does know Dafydd. Bill definitely knew the sort of things that happened to psych patients and he hasn’t ever told all either. Bryson wrote about Holloway Sanatorium in his book ‘Notes From A Small Island’ and recorded that the Sanatorium had a charm about it because ‘it was full of wandering lunatics’. Bryson worked at the Sanatorium in 1973 as a janitor on Tuke Ward. He mentions the ward as home to ‘long-stay male patients in a state of arrested insanity’. According to Bryson, the place was one of the most extraordinary communities in England. Many patients were allowed to wander freely down to the shops and back, mingling on equal terms with the locals, who affectionately referred to the institution as ‘the sanny’.

Yes Bill and the patients whom you didn’t write about were in there because they had knowledge of very serious wrongdoing. As might have the harmless loonies whom you did acknowledge but they were out and about because they had been sufficiently destroyed by their ‘care and treatment’ not to pose a threat to the reputations of the Top Docs or anyone else…

Bill: Patient F originally came from Surrey. The loonies from down there had dynamite – the lowdown on who was supplying underaged sex workers and drugs to rock stars and other celebs and the circumstances of the deaths of people like Brian Jones and Jimi Hendrix (see eg. post ‘Killing Floor – I Know Cos I Was There!’ and other posts…).

Bill Bryson lived in Kirkby Malham in North Yorkshire in the 1980s and 90s. He knew about Savile and the trafficking ring there….

Bill mingles with the best. In November 2006, Bryson interviewed the then British PM Miranda, on the state of science and education. You should have asked him what the hell was going on at Bangor University Bill, you interviewed Miranda just months after the brother-in-law of Miranda’s policy adviser John McTernan nicked my computer.

In 2005 Bryson was appointed Chancellor of Durham University. Here he is in his glad rags:

 

 

Bryson was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society in 2013, becoming the first non-Briton upon whom this honour has been conferred. Well I wonder how Bill managed that? His biography at the Royal Society reads: ‘Bill Bryson is a popular author who is driven by a deep curiosity for the world we live in. Bill’s books and lectures demonstrate an abiding love for science and an appreciation for its social importance. His international bestseller, A Short History of Nearly Everything (2003), is widely acclaimed for its accessible communication of science and has since been adapted for children.’

The things that Bill didn’t manage to include in his volume ‘A Short History Of Nearly Everything’ may be read on this blog.

 

It’s just as well that people who are linked to Dafydd’s network of umbrellas have won the Nobel Prize with their Beautiful Cure, because the Nobels this year have been rather tainted by the goings-on in relation to the Nobel Prize for Literature. Unfortunately it has been scrapped for 2018 as a result of one of those involved, Jean-Claude Arnault, being convicted of rape and sentenced to two years in prison days before Allison and Honjo were awarded their Nobel Prize. Jean-Claude wasn’t due to receive a Nobel Prize himself, but he styled himself as the Swedish Academy’s ’19th member’ and was married to Academy member Katarina Frostenson, a poet and playwright. The scandal involving Jean-Claude caused seven members of the Academy to stand down, including Katarina, as well as the Academy’s permanent secretary, Sara Danius.

For many years, Arnault and Frostenson ran Forum, a club in Stockholm that showcased exhibitions and readings by prominent cultural personalities including Nobel laureates. The club was partly funded by the Swedish Academy, prompting secondary allegations of a conflict of interest. As the scandal unfolded, it was reported that an internal investigation by the Academy had concluded that Arnault may have leaked the names of seven Nobel literature laureates – the subject of heavy betting – in advance of their announcement, including those of Bob Dylan in 2016 and Harold Pinter in 2005. The Harold Pinter who was married to Lord Longford’s daughter, Lady Antonia. Lord Longford and many members of his family and network knew a great deal about Dafydd, organised abuse, the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the wrongful imprisonment of witnesses (see post ‘Comedies Of Menace’).

The scandal first erupted last November when the Dagens Nyheter newspaper published detailed allegations by 18 women accusing Arnault – who describes himself as a photographer – of rape, sexual harassment, physical abuse and harassment over a period of more than 20 years, in Sweden and France. Eight women filed formal complaints, but all bar one of the cases were subsequently dropped for lack of evidence or because they had exceeded the statute of limitations. The woman in the case that came to trial – a writer and academic – told police of the 2011 assaults a few days after the Dagens Nyheter report was published, saying she had not come forward earlier because Jean-Claude Arnault was a good friend of her manager…

 

After finding out who were the colleagues of the Nobel Prize winner James Allison, imagine my delight when I read on ‘The Guardian’ online that an old favourite of this blog has won the Royal Society Prize for the Science Book of the Year – Sarah-Jayne Blakemore, daughter of Mr Oxford University, Mr Cambridge University and Mr MRC. I blogged about Sarah-Jayne in previous posts (eg. ‘They Are MYRIAD, They Are Legion’) and provided details of a number of her colleagues and mentors who either knew about Dafydd and the gang and remained silent or actively concealed their crimes.

Some of Sarah-Jayne’s colleagues have even worked with Dafydd, such as Professor Mark Williams, who recently collaborated with Sarah-Jayne on a Wellcome funded project in an attempt to demonstrate that Mindfulness not only ‘works’ but can be demonstrated to work by scanning people’s brains and other such techniques. Mindfulness was a research fraud perpetrated by Mark Williams in the late 1980s when Williams worked as a clinical psychologist in north Wales with Dafydd and the paedophile gang. Early editions of Williams’s books had acknowledgements to social worker Keith Fearns, one of those who perjured himself in court in an attempt to have me imprisoned. Williams co-authored with Judith Soulsby, another colleague of the people traffickers who will never be forgotten by all who encountered her and with Isobel Hargreaves, who was married to Ralph Oxley, a botanist at Bangor University who in turn worked with Chris Wood, the wife of Dr D.G.E Wood. They all peopled Bangor University when Dafydd and the gang ran the place. Most of Williams’s patients who’s miraculous recoveries formed the basis of his publications are now dead and many of them died shortly after Williams told the world that he was working Miracles in that sleepy little corner of Wales which was run by a bunch of gangsters. Mark Williams made it known in north Wales that he wanted a Chair at Oxford years ago – at about the time of the Waterhouse Report. See post ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot’.

Sarah-Jayne Blakemore is the Prof of Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL. Her network of friends and colleagues hold many positions on grant awarding bodies, as does Sarah-Jayne herself, including on the Wellcome Trust. Sarah-Jayne is continuing a family tradition. Colin Blakemore was Chief Exec of the MRC, 2003-07, which was when many of Sarah-Jayne’s colleagues received funding from the MRC.

Colin Blakemore succeeded Professor Sir George Radda as the Chief Exec of the MRC, with an annual budget of more than £700 million. The reputation of the MRC had been damaged by what was perceived as financial mismanagement, the introduction of unpopular funding schemes and a lack of transparency in its dealings with researchers. Blakemore launched a national roadshow to consult the scientific community and quickly changed the mechanisms for handling funds, rationalised the grant schemes, introduced new forms of support for young researchers and overhauled the communications policies of the MRC. He maintained his research activity at Oxford University during his period of office.

Blakemore argued for a stronger commitment to clinical research and to the translation of basic research into benefits for patients. These actions anticipated Sir David Cooksey’s 2006 “Review of UK Health Research Funding”, which resulted in closer working between the MRC and the Departments of Health, but which recommended that “funding levels for basic science should be sustained”. In the Comprehensive Spending Review at the end of Blakemore’s term of office, the budget of the MRC was increased by more than one third over three years. He was succeeded at the MRC by Leszek Borysiewicz.

On the completion of his appointment at the MRC in 2007, Colin Blakemore returned to the Chair of Neuroscience at Oxford before his appointment at the University of London in 2012.

Sarah-Jayne did her first degree at Oxford University and her PhD at UCL. She received much funding from the Royal Society as a post-doc.

 

Soon after Colin Blakemore’s appointment to the MRC, ‘The Sunday Times’ published a leaked British Cabinet Office document that suggested he was deemed unsuitable for inclusion in the 2004 New Year’s Honours List because of his research on animals – research considered “controversial” by a British Gov’t committee that oversees matters of science and technology despite being widely supported by political leaders and the public. Colin Blakemore was hated by animal rights activists, some of whom tried to kill him. However Blakemore’s research was also considered to be very dodgy by his fellow researchers. I was told in 1990 by a neurosurgeon who had worked with Blakemore at Cambridge that Blakemore’s research was cruel and could not be justified. This was a man who was very au fait with animal work and had done it himself.

I have never met Colin Blakemore, but I did meet some medical researchers who made it quite clear that they should be allowed to do whatever they wanted to animals in their labs and that no-one else even had the right to comment. Some of the experiments carried out by the Royal College of Surgeons, the Institute of Psychiatry and places like the Huntingdon Institute were downright cruel and many medical researchers themselves were of the opinion that they should have been stopped.

After Blakemore discovered that he had been blacklisted for an honour, he threatened to resign from the MRC, suggesting in interviews that his position as Chief Executive was now untenable:

It’s a matter of principle. The mission statement of the MRC is explicit. There’s a specific commitment to talk to the public about issues in medical research. How can I now go to our scientists, and ask them to risk talking about animal research, when there now appears to be evidence that in secret the government disapproves it, even though in public they’ve strongly encouraged it?

A Parliamentary inquiry investigating the matter implicated the Science and Technology Committee Chaired by Sir Richard Mottram. After expressions of support for animal experimentation from then PM Miranda; Chief Scientific Adviser David King; Minister for Science Lord Sainsbury; and the wider scientific community, Blakemore withdrew his threat to resign.

Miranda knows nothing about the use of animals in research and would have said whatever was convenient and Lord David Sainsbury was notorious for being a man who in return for huge donations to the Labour Party was given a job as Science Minister. Lord Sainsbury formulated mental health policy under Blair by the same method and after giving over £100 million to Cambridge University, Sainsbury was appointed Chancellor. More recently David Sainsbury has been bank rolling neuroscience research at UCL. See post ‘Inside Information About A Hergest Unit Death’.

People who have been part of the Science and Technology Committee are not always the ethical men/wimmin of science whom one would hope to find on that Committee. Stars have included Dafydd’s mate the Bastard of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne who laughably also Chaired the Medical Ethics Committee, 1993-94, while witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd’s gang were found dead:

 In a House of Lords debate in 2015. Christ, imagine that looming over your bedside after you’ve just had neurosurgery. I bet that there was some butchery in Newcastle that had to be concealed.

 

Lord Bob has also been a leading light on the Science and Technology Select Committee:

The Lord Winston FMedSci FRSA FRCP FROG FRSB FREng
Lord Winston 2011 (Portrait).jpg

 

Lord Bob is media friendly but Lord Bob knew about the trafficking gang that was being facilitated by Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain et al at St George’s and the rest of the wrongdoing by Chamberlain et al (see post ‘Now Then…’); he knew about dear old Dafydd and the cartel of Top Doctors who unlawfully denied women in north Wales terminations and forced them into the hands of a dodgy private abortionist in Chester (see post ‘I Predict A Riot’ and ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’); and Lord Bob also passed an unhinged sexual harasser whom he unwittingly employed as a junior doctor onto Chamberlain’s team, Lord Bob obviously believing that the sexual harasser would feel at home there. The sexual harasser surpassed himself by having sex with a research assistant, in the lab, while telling her how much he wanted to shag one of the other research assistants. Who, when she heard about it, told me that under no circumstances would she be having sex with him. Chamberlain in turn passed the harassing shagger  onto someone else. Richard Penketh, the harassing shagger in question, ended up working as a Top Doctor in Cardiff, where Dr Brian Gibbons, the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister who concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al, gave him an award for excellence.

Ah, the doctors they were wonderful!

I remember you well Penketh! As no doubt does every other female under the age of 40 who has ever made your acquaintance.

Richard can now be found advertising his services as a Top Doctor who works for Spire Healthcare.

Here’s Penketh, picking up yet another award!

Colin Blakemore finally bagged his K in 2014, so there was a happy ending.

And now Sarah-Jayne has won the Royal Society Prize!

Sarah-Jayne’s book is called, most appropriately, ‘Inventing Ourselves’. Which is pretty much what they have all done. They’ve given each other big grants and prizes, they’ve supplied rave reviews for each other’s books, they’ve invited each other onto media programmes and by such strategies, they have all become ‘experts’ and ‘leaders in their fields’. People despair of the cronyism and nepotism in institutions like Bangor and Aberystwyth Universities and I can understand why, but nothing, nothing at all, beats the Top Doctors in the London-Oxford-Cambridge triangle. Furthermore they are the ones who are at the top of CR-UK, the MRC and the Wellcome Trust and who end up sitting in the Lords.

 

I won’t dwell at length on Sarah-Jayne and her dad in this post, readers can read all about them in previous posts. However, I am interested in the judges who awarded Sarah-Jayne her prize.

The Chair of the panel of judges was Professor Dame Frances Ashcroft, who stated that ‘Inventing Ourselves’ is ‘truly a book that everyone should read’. Frances Ashcroft is the Royal Society GlaxoSmithKline Professor of Physiology at Oxford. Gosh, I wonder who funded that Chair. Frances Ashcroft holds Bachelors and Postgrad degrees from Cambridge and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1999. Ashcroft is the Director of OXION, a training and research programme on the integrative physiology of ion channels, funded by the Wellcome Trust.

Dame Frances has rubbed shoulders with a few of those we know and love on her journey upwards and not just Sarah-Jayne’s dad either. Frances Ashcroft went to Talbot Heath School, an independent school for girls in Bournemouth. Famous old girls include Dr Death’s mate Shirl. Ashcroft undertook post-doc work at Leicester University in the late 1970s, when that institution was heaving with people concealing the organised abuse gang in Leicester of which Greville Janner was alleged to be a member and which had links with Dafydd. The medical school at Leicester in particular was up to its eyes in it, as was the Dean of Leicester Medical School, Lord Robert Kilpatrick, who, like Lord John Walton, Chaired the GMC and loyally served Dafydd and his associates in that capacity. See previous posts.

Frances Ashcroft was one of five 2012 winners of the L’Oreal UNESCO Award for Women In Science. Because she’s worth it! Look, she has lovely hair and ooh I do like that dress as well, black goes well on her but you wouldn’t wear it in the daytime though would you and that necklace is nice, just right, understated oooh classy. Do you know I think that I recognise Frances, I’m sure that I met her when I was carrying out my post-doc work in Laboratoire Garnier.

 

 

Ashcroft is a woman of many talents and appeared (as a diner) on Masterchef during the 2011 series, along with several other Fellows of the Royal Society. Their taste buds are of superior quality to the taste buds of the lower orders, which is why the Fellows of the Royal Society were invited to taste the grub rather than the cleaners of the institutions in which the Fellows are employed. I expect that series of Masterchef was funded by the MRC and Wellcome Trust, which would have ensured that the diners weren’t just anyone.

Ashcroft’s work with Professor Andrew Hattersley ‘has helped enable children born with diabetes to switch from insulin injections to tablet therapy’. Hattersley is Professor of Molecular Medicine at the University of Exeter. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2010. Hattersley did a degree at Emmanuel College, Cambridge and then trained as a Top Doctor at Oxford. He undertook further training in diabetes at Hammersmith Hospital. We’re on familiar territory aren’t we…

Hattersley was a lecturer at Birmingham University, 1993-1994 and he has worked at Exeter since 1995. So Hattersley lectured at Birmingham along with Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass who concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE) and Tony Francis’s mate Professor Ian Brockington (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’). Exeter also employs a few mates of the gang from north Wales, as a result of Exeter’s collaboration with Professor Mark Williams and his Mindfulness con. For a long while, the head honcho for Mindfulness at Exeter University was Professor Willem Kuyken, but he relocated some years ago. Where did he go? Oxford University of course, Willem stepped into Mark Williams’s shoes when Williams decided to ‘retire’. Which coincided with one of Mark Williams’s victims from north Wales writing to the VC of Oxford University about his experiences with Mark Williams. The person in question was a close friend of mine from Gwynedd. He then became seriously ill and was refused all NHS care by the Top Docs in north Wales and lived rough in Scotland for a while. At the same time, the Top Docs decided that it was time to ruin my life all over again and I was unlawfully detained for many months. Imagine my surprise, when I finally got back on my feet, only to find that Mark Williams had decided that perhaps retirement wasn’t for him after all and had embarked on a major collaboration with Sarah-Jayne!

Then there were the extraordinary experiences that I had when I was interviewed for two research jobs at Exeter University; the NHS Chief Exec of the region who narrowly escaped a prison sentence after being convicted of fraud; the death of a young mentally ill man in the police station directly opposite the building housing Exeter’s Medical School, which specialises in Service User Led Research; and Professor Edzard Ernst, who was forced out of his job at Exeter because his research consistently demonstrated that some of the ‘therapies’ which the authorities at Exeter University wanted to promote were clinically ineffective. If Edzard had made up his data like a few other people whom I could name, he’d have kept his job. See previous posts for details of these Exeter Experiences.

Andrew Hattersley has bagged many honours and prizes, among them: 1998 Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, London; 2004 Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences; 2016 GlaxoSmithKline Prize; 2016 EASD–Novo Nordisk Foundation Diabetes Prize for Excellence.

I have no idea whether Andrew Hattersley is any relation of Roy Fattersley, the other half of the ‘dream ticket’ which was going to get the Windbag elected as PM many years ago.

 

One of Frances Ashcroft’s fellow judges was Vivienne Parry, ‘science broadcaster and journalist’. Parry has presented BBC’s ‘Tomorrow’s World’ and ‘Panorama’ and contributes to ‘The Guardian’ online. Vivienne Parry is Head of Engagement at Genomics England.

Parry was educated at the independent girls’ school St Swithun’s, Winchester. She studied Zoology at Bedford College (London) graduating with in 1978 and then went on to UCL to study immunology and genetics…

Parry was Vice Chairman of Council of UCL and in 2009 was appointed a member of the MRC.

Parry’s first job was as National Organiser of the mother and baby charity Birthright,1979-94. Birthright was a charidee which has gone under several different names and was founded by Sir George Pinker, a friend of Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain. Pinker was the poshest of Top Docs and he was Surgeon-Gynaecologist to HM the Queen Lilibet, 1973-90 and oversaw many Royal births  (see post ‘Wimmin’s Wellbeing – The Fortnum And Mason Connection’).

Vivienne Parry worked closely with the Birthright’s Patron, HRH The Princess of Wales for 12 years. HRH Di might not have realised it, but she wasn’t the best advert for Sir George Pinker’s clinical skills; there are indications that Pinker screwed up the delivery of Prince William. HRH was left with the impression that she had simply experienced a difficult delivery, but no, George misjudged badly because he wouldn’t listen to the silly girl and he was quite lucky that William arrived in possession of a full complement of brain cells because that probably should have been a Ceasarian delivery… Not that anyone in the Royal Household clicked, George was wheeled out once more when Di was finally persuaded to have another baby, something that she had made clear that she was very unwilling to do because of what had happened before. Not that the Royals can be blamed for that, they have no way of judging the competence of their Top Docs, the Top Docs are a load of bloody liars who will not come clean when one of them should not be let loose on patients and so even Royalty get it in the neck.

Any Top Docs want to fess up as to which one of you it was who passed the gynae records of a high profile member of the Royal Family around London in the late 1980s then??? I heard the crude jokes. God, people would fucking clock you lot if they knew how you actually conducted yourselves. Never mind, give yourselves another Nobel Prize, it’ll keep the wagon on the rails for a few more years while the clinical outcomes of people in the UK steadily continue downhill and you can scream for more ‘funding’ for the ‘under-resourced’ NHS…

Vivienne Parry was briefly a Trustee of the Princess of Wales Memorial Fund. Di survived the births at the hands of George Pinker but not the drive  through that tunnel in Paris.

In September 2017, Parry was appointed to the board of UKRI (UK Research & Innovation).

Vivienne was very involved with the setting up of the Science Media Centre and Cheltenham Science Festival. In September 2017 Vivienne became Chair of the Cheltenham Science Festival and a member of the Cheltenham Festivals Board.

Here’s Lord Bob enjoying himself at the Cheltenham Science Festival in 2011, but I have no idea of whatever it is that he is boasting about the size of:

 

 

Other judges on the Royal Society Science Book of the Year panel which awarded Sarah-Jayne her prize were Dr Leigh Fletcher, the Associate Professor of Planetary Sciences at the University of Leicester  – Leigh Fletcher has spent most of his career at Oxford and Cambridge; Peter Florence, a literary gent who is Director and Co-founder of the Hay Festival; and Greg Williams, Editor of ‘Wired’ magazine, which is all about techie things. I very much doubt that any of these people are in a position to judge whether Sarah-Jayne has written a work of genius or a work of utter cobblers. However they will all know who her dad is.

There was another judge on the panel as well. None other than Professor Brian Cox. Brian is the BBC favourite who is also Professor of Particle Physics at Manchester University. Brian is not just a David Attenborough or a Johnny Morris who deludes children into believing that he is a scientist, Brian is a real live physicist and he knows his stuff. He also knew about the likes of Jimmy Savile cluttering up the BBC but he kept as quiet as everyone else did about it.

Before Brian Cox achieved stardom as a TV physicist, he was best known as the man who played with the rock group D:Ream, who were responsible for ‘Things Can Only Get Better’, the sound track to Miranda’s 1997 General Election victory. I was delighted to see the back of the Tories myself and I remember watching old Prezza on TV having a drunken knees-up. I did however have two mates who were Labour activists who told me that the arrival of Miranda as PM was no cause for celebration. They were quite right. Up in north Wales, life continued pretty much as before for Empowered Service Users. They continued to be found dead throughout the Waterhouse Inquiry, which had opened five months before Miranda became PM.

One big healthcare story in the news today is that ever increasing numbers of mental health patients are being tasered by the police while they are in hospital. The Hergest Unit was one of the first mental health units in the UK who called in the police to taser a patient. Lest anyone swallows the line that this might be needed in the case of Dangerous Patients, it is not. Not under any circumstances. Hospital in-patients sectioned under the Mental Health Act have no rights at all, absolutely none. Numerous Angels can pile on top of them and stay there for hours, even until the patient stops breathing and dies. It is not unlawful. Likewise the Angels can forcibly inject patients with Medication which kills them. The patients have no right to refuse, even if they know that they have reacted nearly fatally to such Medication on a previous occasion. All these were tried and tested methods of murdering patients before the introduction of police officers with tasers and they served the purpose just as well. Furthermore, if a detained mental health patient dies in police custody, there has to be an investigation and figures are kept regarding such deaths. There is no obligation for the NHS to hold such an investigation if the Angels murder a sectioned mental health patient and very few such deaths are investigated. Deaths of patients in mental health units are recorded but one has to fight tooth and nail to access the data.

Neither are people with learning disabilities faring any better. Horrifying figures were released today with regard to the use of ‘restraint’ on people with learning disabilities in hospital units in England. The number of times that ‘restraint’ was used on such patients rose by 50% between 2016 and 2017. That 50% rise wasn’t from 10 times to 15 times. In 2017, restraint was used more than 22,000 times. Once every half an hour. The figures cover adults as well as children. Face down restraint of patients with leaning disabilities – which Gov’t guidelines now state should never be used in any circumstances – was used 3,100 times in 2017. As with tasering mental health patients, this risks the patient dying and even if that doesn’t happen, it is terrifying for a distressed patient as well as virtually always unnecessary. Many families and carers of people with learning disabilities report how bad healthcare staff are at handling the person whom they care for. The staff have no patience or understanding, they demand that the patient participates in pointless activities which just escalates their confusion and distress and should the learning disabled person swear in distress it’ll be case of ‘now don’t you speak to me like that or we’ll have you arrested, we have a zero tolerance aggression policy here’. They have learning disabilities you stupid fuckers, they have no idea what a zero tolerance aggression policy means.

Many of those being restrained are categorised as having challenging behaviour as a result of conditions such as autism. Some of Sarah-Jayne’s colleagues at UCL, Cambridge and Oxford are considered to be global leaders in autism.

But the mates of those at UCL, Oxford and Cambridge have won their Nobel Prize and now thousands of lives will be saved and many more millions of pounds will find their way into the coffers of those institutions. Particularly as Sarah-Jayne has now won that Royal Society prize for her book explaining how they all Invented Themselves.

It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not ‘Arf

Here is yet another post that I hadn’t planned to write, but which has resulted from a number of recent e mails from readers after I began blogging about the Top Docs of north Wales who formed a cartel to unlawfully prevent women accessing NHS abortions in the region throughout the 1970s and 80s. Women were told that if they wanted an NHS abortion they had to be admitted to the North Wales Hospital Denbigh to be ‘assessed’ by Dafydd, after which they would be refused a termination anyway. However, any woman who agreed to pay could access abortion on demand at a ‘private clinic’ in Chester.

My post ‘I Predict A Riot’ discussed the written information which was given to female students when they arrived at UCNW (Bangor University) informing them of the situation, information which included a paragraph about ‘care’ of oneself after the termination and the ‘problems’ encountered by a few previous students which suggested that the abortions at the unidentified ‘private clinic’ were not safe and that women’s lives were being put at risk.

The only private clinic in Chester registered to provide terminations from 1981 onward was the Grosvenor Nuffield, which was also the hospital where Dafydd conducted ‘clinics’. The Grosvenor Nuffield dispensed with Dafydd’s services in the late 1980s or early 90s, but I don’t know which aspect of Dafydd caused them to finally pull the plug on him.

I e mailed Brown yesterday to ask him if he thought that the Grosvenor Nuffield would be putting women at such risk or whether abortions might have been taking place somewhere else in Chester as well.

Brown observed: ‘One of the first things that the freshers got at Bangor university was material about abortions, which seemed to me to be a rather negative note to start your university experience on. But with some of the background up there it is perhaps rather more understandable. There’s no reason why it wouldn’t be undertaken in a Nuffield hospital, as in the 1970s and 1980s almost all private hospitals were called some sort of ‘Nuffield’.  It was only in the late 1980s that some of the new start-ups were called BUPA hospitals. The standard of care, while more expensive, wouldn’t have been any better. It was a bit like people going to former eastern bloc countries for health care now, where things like joint replacements and dental implants led to major bleeds and hard-to-treat infections. So with perfunctory treatment and limited aftercare it’s not surprising that there were complications. Not to mention the rather judgemental attitude of many heath care personnel who were more than happy to make sure  that this sort of thing yielded maximum pain, humiliation and inconvenience for the patients.’

I suspect that the last sentence of the above paragraph is spot on, because no-one I know at UCNW ever discussed their experiences, although the Student Health Centre continually packed students off to the ‘private clinic’ in Chester. I was never one of the students who spent hours in the kitchen of our hall of residence hugging a mug of coffee and discussing my Experiences As A Woman, but I was always chatting and socialising under the radar with a variety of people, both students and locals and I heard about much wrongdoing. As I mentioned previously, I never ever found out who was performing the illegal abortions in the region, although I knew that they were taking place.

Last night I had an e mail from a woman who grew up in north Wales, who told me that she had been abused at locations familiar to me and she also told me that as a teenager she was packed off to Chester for an abortion, but she definitely was not taken to the Grosvenor Nuffield. So there WAS another, completely illegal, abortionist operating in Chester then, as I suspected.

My correspondent has told me that she attended Howell’s School in Denbigh, 1977-82 and at that time the school doctor was Dr Morton Evans, a GP from Denbigh. She hasn’t told me anything about Morton Evans, instead she asked if I knew anything about him because she believes that ‘he must have been in with the bad guys’.

I don’t know Morton Evans, but as a GP in Denbigh at that time he would have had no choice but to be in with the bad guys. Not only was every working person in the town employed either at the North Wales Hospital or in a business which was dependent upon the North Wales Hospital, but it was the citizens of Denbigh who volunteered to drive the patients to their court cases or transferred them to other institutions. As I have described in previous posts, those drivers were well aware that the patients whom they were ferrying about were not only not necessarily ‘mad’ but had been illegally imprisoned as well. No volunteers that were not 100% tame would have ever been taken on.

The vile old lobotomist Gwynne lived in Denbigh and if anyone had ever had any interest in the welfare of the patients, they’d have set fire to his house in the way in which the gang set fire to the houses of their victims. If someone had moved to Denbigh and had tried to protect the patients from Gwynne and Dafydd et al, scenes worthy of ‘The Wicker Man’ would have resulted:

 

  • The Wicker Man (1973) – Episode 4 Decades of Horror 1970s ...
  • Brian Vs. Movies: The Wicker Man (1973)
  • 1970’s | Through the Looking Glass
  • Wicker Man (1973) movie trailers and photos

 

‘Denbigh is unique’, as Dafydd stated in a media interview in the midst of all those investigations into a possible paedophile ring operating in north Wales/Cheshire. The Empowered Service Users screamed with laughter in response and did Dafydd voices while saying things like ‘Denbigh is unique in having a psychopathic psychiatrist who’s shagging all the patients’ (although of course in that respect, no Denbigh was not unique), but not one politician/public figure/journo had the guts to stand up and say ‘oh for God’s sake, we all know what’s going on out there’ as Dafydd received vast amounts of free PR in numerous media outlets.

Every GP in Wales was colluding with the crimes of Dafydd et al, let alone every GP in Denbigh. Every patient of the GPs in Denbigh will have been Of Dafydd And The Paedophiles, as will have been the GPs. Furthermore, in the way that the midwives in the area around Denbigh knew all about the women incarcerated out there if they had a pregnancy inconvenient to someone else or had to be relieved of their baby illegally and against their wishes or those women who had become pregnant while they were in Denbigh – ‘ooh its those rampant male patients, they’re animals’ – because they were called upon to conceal the crime, the local GPs will have been called upon to deal with some of the serious injuries and illnesses, or at least those for which medical help was summoned as opposed to the cases where the resulting corpse was simply secreted within the grounds.

I encountered a local GP when I was in Denbigh, on New Year’s Eve, 1986. Patients in Denbigh rarely saw anyone but the Angels; dental treatment was unavailable and even the Top Doctors barely dropped in on the wards. Dafydd turned up infrequently, without warning and in the small hours, but the patients’ experience of even the other rather less obviously mad Top Docs was of being constantly told ‘you’ll be seeing the Doctor soon’, only for The Doctor to never materialise. Patients would actually be told to ‘get ready’ because ‘they would be seen’ that morning, only for the Top Doctor to not show up, not warn the Angels that they weren’t going to show up and not explain afterwards why they did not show up. The circus would begin again the following week when the next ‘ward round’ was scheduled. It was by such a process that Mary Wynch was unlawfully imprisoned in Denbigh for a year and was not seen by Dafydd once. Patient F, who had previously challenged social workers over their abuse of boys at Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor (see previous posts), had a similar experience. The contempt with which desperate, frightened, illegally imprisoned people were treated was breath-taking.

As I have described previously, nearly all patients were taken to Denbigh at night, under cover of darkness, by ambulance rather than police car, because police cars would have been noticeable and ambulances could be explained away as being ‘caring’ rather than punitive. This is why the Welsh Ambulance Service in north Wales has for so long been corrupt and problematic, they were a fully paid up part of the trafficking gang. When F was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd with breathing difficulties in 1990, after he was discharged, F was told by the ambulanceman who had been called to ‘help’ with his admission – who was one of F’s neighbours in Porthmadog at the time – that if ever F developed breathing difficulties again, ‘next time I’ll let you fucking die’. Health care staff in north Wales were all too often very unpleasant people.

The GP that I saw on New Year’s Eve in Denbigh was the only Top Doc who wasn’t employed as a Top Doc for Denbigh that I saw while I was in Denbigh. I was never meant to encounter him and there were major traumas on the part of the Angels when I did. Previous posts have discussed how when I was in Denbigh I made friends with a young man called Stephen Bagnall, who I am sure died long ago. Stephen was from Queens Park estate in Wrexham, had been a kid in care in the north Wales children’s homes and had been in Risley and Walton Prison. He chatted a lot to me and told me many of the dreadful things which had happened to him, but he mentioned many more actions of ‘professionals’ which he was unaware were completely unlawful, including a number of things that Dafydd had done. Stephen looked appalling, really terrifying, but he was actually kind and friendly and seriously pissed the Angels off by confronting them about the abuses in their ‘unique’ institution.

On New Years Eve, Stephen and I were watching TV when we heard a commotion down the far end of the corridor near the entrance to the ward, which was obviously as result of a patient fighting like buggery in an attempt not to be admitted to Denbigh. We sneaked down the corridor and noticed that the door between the ward and the outer door, which was locked at all times, had been left open, because the patient being brought in was resisting to such an extent that all Angels were needed and in the panic they’d not locked the door behind them. The ambulancemen had dragged the young male patient just inside the main doors, which had then been locked immediately, but the young man had a fight with the Angels just inside of the ward.

There was a middle aged Top Doctor, obviously a GP, who was waving a hypodermic about while the Angels piled on top of the young man after dragging him into one of the padded cells. Stephen and I walked right through into the inner sanctum and the Top Doc turned around and nearly crapped himself when he saw us. The young man wasn’t yet out for the count, so the Angels couldn’t do anything but watch as Stephen started saying to the Top Doc ‘are you a doctor? Do you know what they are doing to people in here? Will you help us please, its terrible in here’. The Top Doc snapped ‘yes I’m a GP, I’m sure that you are well cared for here’. So I stepped out from behind Stephen and said ‘we are not and you can see that we are not. Look at the conditions in here.’ I then had the usual experience in those days of noticing total confusion on a Top Doc’s face  – ‘she’s English, she has a middle class accent, she is using words and phrases that no former kid in care usually uses, she is not dressed like a chav, who is she and what is she doing in here, OH SHIT’.

The Top Doc looked at us and said ‘well Happy New Year to you both’, I started laughing and said ‘what, in this place?’ and he just scarpered… Angels came running as the young man upon whom they had been sitting had now passed out…

Throughout it all, we hadn’t caught a clear view of the new patient’s face, but the next morning, when he awoke, he began protesting with the Angels again, demanding to be released. They still had him in the padded cell, but the door was left open because they were in there with him. During this time, Stephen and I – Stephen had come to fetch me to see if we could get a glimpse of the new inmate ‘because I might know him’ – had a good view of the protest and of the young man’s face. Stephen recognised him, told me that he was from Wrexham but Stephen didn’t know his name. The Angels heard Stephen telling me that he knew the young man. We were told that breakfast was ready, which was served down the other end of the ward. When we finished breakfast the new man had disappeared. We never saw him again. Stephen challenged the Angels and asked them where the new man was. All Angels stared straight ahead of themselves in silence, until one said ‘he’s been transferred, this was not the right place for him’. No, because Stephen had recognised him…another troubled young man from Wrexham, the location of Bryn Alyn and Bryn Estyn.

We never found out where the young man had gone.

The scenes involving the disappearing young man from Wrexham were all recorded by the security services, as was made clear to me a few weeks ago by an informant. They heard the ‘Happy New Year to you both’ bit. They knew who that Top Doc was, they’ll have known who the young man who disappeared was and they’ll know how and when Stephen died.

It wasn’t stopped. A ‘political decision’ was made not to intervene. On Dec 31 1986, Sir Peter Morrison was the Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party.

This was the Windbag of the Opposition, who obviously agreed with the political decision which was made to save the career of Thatch, because he was fully on board with the Top Docs and Angels of Denbigh and knew Tony Francis, a Top Doc who had patients in Denbigh on 31 Dec 1986:

A reader has also sent me a link to Hansard, 22 May 1981, which is the record of written answers on issues relating to abortion. I was a fresher at UCNW in Oct 1981, which is when I was given the literature re abortion services to which Brown referred to in his comment above.

Hansard recorded that Jo Richardson, Labour MP for Barking, asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many of the deaths in England and Wales recorded in 1978 and 1979 as due to abortion were from abortions induced for medical or other legal reasons; how many were from spontaneous abortion; how many were from other causes, including illegal abortion and in how many cases death followed a main diagnosis of illegal abortion or the abortion was recorded as induced but not otherwise specified.

Dr Gerard Vaughan, the Tory MP for a Reading constituency, replied on behalf of the DHSS. He stated that the ‘available information’ from death registration for England and Wales recorded five deaths from legal abortions in 1978 and two in 1979; one death from spontaneous abortion in 1979; two deaths for ‘unspecified’ reasons in 1979 and no deaths in 1978 or 1979 as a result of illegal abortions.

However, I suspect that if a few deaths from illegal abortions in north Wales/Chester had occurred, Gerard Vaughan would have been keen to ensure that they did not appear in the stats. Because Gerard Vaughan knew Dafydd. Sir Gerard Vaughan was just a few years older than Dafydd, but like Dafydd, Vaughan was a psychiatrist who had trained at the Maudsley. Vaughan was also an enthusiastic Freemason.

Vaughan studied medicine at the University of London, Guy’s Hospital and then the Maudsley. He was a child psychiatrist who was the consultant in charge of the Bloomfield Clinic at Guy’s Hospital, 1958 -79. So Vaughan held a post at Guy’s when so many of them there were colluding with Dafydd and the gang in north Wales, including Dafydd’s mate Jim Watson, who was Professor of Psychiatry at Guy’s, 1974-2000. Jim Watson, like Dafydd, offered sex therapy, pioneering this at St George’s Hospital Medical School, before moving to Guy’s. Jim was busy with his sex therapy when St George’s was concealing a trafficking ring in London and colluding with Dafydd et al in north Wales. Jim not only carried out sex therapy, but he trained others in the techniques.

Here’s Jim:

Professor-JP-Watson

 

For more information on Jim’s glorious career, see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’.

 

Gerard Vaughan worked at Guy’s when Ed Miliband’s Uncle Harry was a consultant there.

Gerard Vaughan was the son of a sugar planter and was born and educated in what is now Mozambique. He became involved in Tory politics in the mid-1950s, serving as an alderman on the London County Council, who’s members were even back then ignoring the abuse of children, one such person being Audrey Callaghan, who was also an alderman on the London County Council and, along with her husband Jim Callaghan, colluded with organised abuse including that carried out by Dafydd’s gang, for the rest of her life. See eg. post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’.

Vaughan was elected as the MP for Reading in 1970 and held the seat until his retirement from politics just before the May 1997 General Election. By which time the Waterhouse Inquiry had been in progress for five months.

Vaughan served as a Gov’t Whip in Heath’s Gov’t and as PPS to Francis Pym, the N Ireland Secretary, 1973-74. So Vaughan knew about the elite paedophile ring at Kincora Boys’ Home, it’s links to Dafydd’s gang and other trafficking gangs on mainland Britain as well as the rest of the seriously grim stuff that occurred in N Ireland during that time, including the collusion of the security services with the most serious crime. Francis Pym was Lord President of the Council, Sept 1981-April 1982. One of the duties of the Lord President of the Council is to act as visitor for UCNW. So Pym was in that role when the Woman’s Guide To Accessing Dangerous Expensive Abortions was distributed to all female freshers at UCNW in Oct 1981.

After Heath’s defeat in 1974, Gerard Vaughan became Health Spokesman for Thatch when she became Leader of the Tory Party in 1975. One of the key people who supported Thatch to succeed Heath as Leader of the Tories was Sir Peter Morrison. Vaughan became a Minister in the DHSS under Secretary of State Patrick Jenkin after the Tories won the General Election in 1979 and it was in this capacity that Vaughan was answering questions on abortion in May 1981.

When Patrick Jenkin was challenged about equal pay as Secretary of State, he famously replied that if God had wanted equal pay ‘he wouldn’t have created man and woman’. Jenkin’s son Sir Bernard Jenkin inherited the gene for being a Tory MP from that dad of his who had an interest in theology and creationism and Bernard is currently the Tory MP for Harwich and North Essex. Bernard is married to Tory peer Baroness Anne Jenkin, who in Dec 2014 stated that one of the causes of hunger and rising food bank use in the UK was because ‘poor people don’t know how to cook’. At the time of the statement, Anne Jenkin was a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Food Poverty and Hunger. She later apologised, saying that she was speaking without a script, as opposed to without a brain. Anne explained that ‘what I meant was that as a society, we have lost our ability to cook’. No Anne, plenty of us can still cook, but there are some people in the UK who do not have a kitchen or indeed even a building in which to live and cook in. Even if one is an excellent cook, if one is curled up in one’s sleeping bag in a doorway or kipping in a hostel, preparing a Good Nutritious Meal From Fresh Veg is difficult. In 2017 Jenkin became Chair of the Centre for Social Justice Working Group for ‘Off The Scales: Tackling England’s childhood obesity crisis’. Anne is also a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Obesity.

As very poor people clearly do not have enough far richer people screaming at them that they are fat, I might set up a consultancy to encourage this. I’ll apply to the NHS and Gov’t for funding.

Further details about the idiocies of the Jenkin family through the ages can be read in previous posts.

 

After his stellar performance at the DHSS under Patrick Jenkin, Gerard Vaughan found that he did not get on with his next boss Norman Fowler , when Fowler succeeded Jenkin as Secretary of State for the DHSS. I don’t know what upset Gerard Vaughan so much, because Fowler continued concealing Dafydd’s crimes as well. However, the fur flew and as a result Vaughan was appointed Minister for Consumer Affairs. In which role he threatened to slash the budget of the CABs, when he discovered an association between Joan Ruddock, then the head honcho of CND and the CAB. The official story is that the CAB workers rose up in a howl of outrage and Vaughan retreated. I am now so cynical that I am wondering what the truth really was. Because by the mid-1980s, Dafydd and the gang completely controlled the CABs in north Wales and Lucille Hughes held a formal role in the senior management of CAB in Wales.

If the CABs did hold any leverage over Gerard Vaughan, it will have been because of their knowledge of the neglect and abuse in the NHS and welfare services which Vaughan and the Gov’t were concealing. Or did Vaughan realise that CABs were a key cog in Dafydd’s empire and thus twig that the budget could not be cut? Or was the budget preserved and then handed over to Dafydd and Lucille to control and utilise?

Vaughan was dropped from the Gov’t in 1983 as a result of the row over the CABs and was given a knighthood in 1984. 1984 was the year in which Dafydd’s gang sent up a distress flare as Mary Wynch approached the Master of the Rolls and Alison Taylor and I wouldn’t shut up when told either. Reinforcements arrived in north Wales, in the shape of Sir Eric Sunderland, who was appointed Principal of UCNW, as well as a collection of Nice Young Doctors and Angels, who conducted themselves just as badly as the ones already in the region but had better manners and were well camouflaged.

Vaughan served on the Education Select Committee, 1983-93 and the Science and Technology Select Committee, 1993-97.

 

The Torygraph’s 2003 obituary for Gerard Vaughan makes for terrifying reading. It told us that it was Vaughan’s ‘devotion to medicine‘ which drew him into politics; that he had a ‘long career‘ ‘in child psychiatry‘ at Guy’s and ‘an expert’s awareness of the deficiencies in the NHS‘. Vaughan found the problems in the NHS ‘myriad‘, with ‘costs rising‘ and ‘the unions were growing ever more aggressive’.

Particularly the BMA of course.

The entire system was creaking‘ and ‘despite Vaughan’s best efforts, few then were ready to contemplate a partnership with private healthcare’.

Dafydd was one Top Doc who was more than happy to undertake such a partnership, as were the abortionists of Chester.

After qualifying…in 1947, he started as a junior heart surgeon. He then became a general physician and started Guy’s child psychiatry department, where he came to realise that many psychiatric problems had physical origins. In the course of this he developed a treatment, later discontinued but now finding some favour again, for anorexic girls. It involved asking them to make a list of things they would like in hospital. This always began with a visit from the boyfriend, only mentioning food at the end; Vaughan said that they could have these things, but in reverse order.’

The Top Docs ‘success’ rate with anorexia is known to be poor. Anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. It is now acknowledged that virtually all psychiatric ‘treatment’ of anorexia has brutalised the patients and for many of them, made their condition substantially worse, such that their relationship with food remains problematic for the rest of their lives.

Although drawn toward politics by the Health Service’s developing problems, he was not impressed by his first experience. When he attended a meeting aimed at explaining how to be a Conservative councillor, he became so fed up with its self-congratulatory tone that he got up, saying, “If you’re not going to teach me something I must go back to my patients.”

I’m sure that the patients just couldn’t couldn’t wait for Vaughan’s return…

But was later surprised to discover that he had been elected an alderman.

Yes, politicians local and national are always desperate to have a Top Doc on board, the Top Doc can then give the stamp of approval to pretty much anything, ensuring that no questions will be asked.

A hopeless attempt to win Poplar for the Tories in the 1955 general election was followed by his being elected to the London County Council as a councillor for Streatham. After being defeated there, he represented Lambeth on the GLC, and became chairman of its new strategic planning committee…

Er, OK. Streatham and Lambeth, two local authorities with organised abuse gangs on their patches which had been in operation as far back as the late 1940s. By the time that Vaughan was a Minister in the DHSS, the gangs in Streatham and Lambeth were closely linked to Dafydd’s gang and were sending kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales. The gang in Streatham was facilitated by St George’s Hospital Medical School (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’).

Once elected MP for Reading in 1970, Vaughan set about putting his medical experience to good use. In his maiden speech, he roundly declared that too much nonsense was talked about the effect of prescription charges on patients.

You lot in north Wales can pay for those life-threatening abortions as well.

He worried that medical centres were in danger of destroying the close relationship between doctor and patient..

Vaughan meant that the likes of Dr D.G.E. Wood couldn’t sit in a grotty little house in a side street in Bangor aka his ‘surgery’ and totally dominate every aspect of someone’s life, years after she had told him to fuck off because she didn’t want him as her Top Doc any more, while Dafydd passed the message on to all other Top Docs that she had ‘harassed’ and ‘threatened’ an ’eminent GP’. An eminent GP. In Bangor that is, as opposed to Harley Street. The creme de la fucking creme in – the most appropriately named – Orme Road.

…admitted he had been wrong to prescribe the drug thalidomide in his earlier career;

Bloody hell. I bet that he didn’t admit that to the parents who’s babies were born with severe disabilities as a result.

..and warned that the government was plugging the gap in the Health Service with “low standard” doctors from abroad.

Nearly every junior Top Doc in Denbigh was indeed a ‘low standard’ doc from abroad. No-one else would work there. Ysbyty Gwynedd was substantially staffed by Top Docs from abroad as well because British graduates wouldn’t and still won’t work there, although the YG Top Docs, apart from the psychiatrists, were not as uniformly ‘low standard’ as the Top Docs of Denbigh were. However bad the many mediocre Top Docs from abroad were, none of them were as bad as Dafydd. Sadly, the high standard Top Docs from abroad were and are still treated very badly because of the rampant institutionalised racism in medicine.

His popularity with Socialist members was not increased when he tried to join the Association of Scientific, Technical and Managerial Staffs in 1977; he enjoyed pointing out that the union made no response to his application – other than to cash his cheque.

Presumably Vaughan was infiltrating for political purposes. It could be argued that Vaughan should have been very grateful to the ASTMS, they were one of the NHS unions which concealed the wrongdoing of the Top Doctors. However, although the ASTMS concealed the wrongdoing, they used it to gain more powerful position for themselves which always upset the Top Doctors. Had the Top Doctors not been involved with so much serious misconduct and criminality, the ‘ever more aggressive unions’ with whom Vaughan was so angry could have been dealt with. ASTMS metamorphosed into MSF. When I worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School, 1989-91, the MSF reps were corrupt and wielded huge influence as a result of their collusion with the trafficking ring which that institution was facilitating as well as with the rest of the malpractice and misconduct. See previous posts.

On becoming health minister in Margaret Thatcher’s government, charged with introducing better services for less cost, Vaughan set about his task with vigour, facing down angry union demonstrators who opposed any reductions. He ordered the scrapping of the Health Services’ Board, which had been invited to abolish pay beds, and started visiting hospitals, where he would dart unexpectedly down corridors to inspect sluices and other areas which his escorts preferred him not to see.

Gerard Vaughan knew exactly how bad things were then and how much patient harm was concealed and denied.

He also endeavoured to tread a judicious line on abortion, favouring the reduction of the time limit for legal operations from 28 weeks, and eventually supported a compromise of 24 instead of the proposed 20.

Gerard was of course a grade A hypocrite with regard to all matters relating to abortion – he knew what was happening in north Wales and Chester…

He was less lucky with the issue of contraception, supporting the prescription of “the Pill” to girls under 16 without their parents’ knowledge, then having to climb down.

Victoria Gillick’s chaos-inducing mid-1980s legal challenge over the prescribing of the contraceptive pill to girls of under 16 without their parents’ consent saw the nation divided into those who constructed Mrs Gillick as a saint who was preserving Family Life and those who thought that she had locked all of her own daughters into chastity belts. What received no discussion at all at the time was that Top Doctors were very widely prescribing the Pill for underaged girls in care, knowing damn well that they were being sexually abused and that this was why the services of the Top Doc had been requested, often by the abusers themselves. The same Top Docs were livid when Victoria Gillick won her case, although the judgement was later overturned. D.G.E. Wood was one of them – he hated Gillick, but he was one who was dishing out contraception to kids and others whom he knew were being abused. If I had underaged teenaged girls I would be livid if a Top Doc was giving out the contraceptives to them without informing me; not because I would want to invade my children’s privacy, but because I know that many of the Top Docs doing that are colluding with sexual exploitation. Life is very difficult for young people who do not have supportive parents with whom they can discuss such matters, but the Top Docs did and do such kids no favours at all.

Gerard Vaughan was elected FRCS in 1993.

 

In line with their tradition of Praising Top Doctors under all circumstances, ‘The Guardian’ found many kind words to say about Dafydd’s mate Gerard after he pegged out. Gerard ‘was a psychiatrist whose political bedside manner was genial – except for the occasional explosion’…’He did wonderful work for children afflicted by thalidomide’,  – well he had prescribed the stuff for their mothers – ‘and sounded loud warnings about the threat of Aids, including a proposal to post health warnings on affected NHS personnel and screen people coming from infected areas of Africa.’

Gerard didn’t mention the risks that Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon, the HIV infected son of the Tory peer Lord Kenyon, posed to the kids in care in north Wales whom Thomas was sexually abusing (see previous posts).

But his ideology led him to privatising initiatives within the NHS, and more drastic planning for wholesale privatisation in secret party conclaves.

Well fancy a Top Doc friend of Dafydd’s doing that!

…in February 1974, the election that also saw the return of a Wilson government, he made clear his intention to privatise the NHS with his proposal to base it on “total insurance cover”. To back his efforts, he formed the Conservative medical society, becoming its president.

What have you got to say about that then Polly?

…he chaired a party working group that proposed tax relief for private health insurance, later extended to users of private medicine.’

Thus assisting the business of the Grosvenor Nuffield and Dafydd’s many clinics…

He pledged to cut £30m in NHS waste, partly by stopping its abuse by foreigners;

The legions of Nigerian women whom every Torygraph and Daily Mail reader knows come to the UK to give birth to their quins are always a good scapegoat.

 

The Nigerian Whose Five Babies On The NHS Cost Us £200,000 ...

 

he urged reluctant regional authorities to contract out more work to private clinics;

Did Gerard Vaughan plan to roll out the abortion policy as practised by the NHS in north Wales across the whole of the UK perhaps?

he pushed to replace the NHS’s tax income with insurance income, along US or continental lines. Despite cabinet meanness, he tried to improve Britain’s supply of safe blood products.

Whoops!!! Not much success with that one Dr Vaughan. I don’t remember you warning the general public that infected blood products were being given to NHS patients without their knowledge and that thousands of them would subsequently die as a result.

‘Now just pop up on the bed here, we’ll soon have you better. Nothing at all to worry about my dear. Did you mention that you’d complained about Dr Dafydd Alun Jones?  Oh I am sorry to hear that you weren’t happy, he’s a bit eccentric but we’ll make sure that it doesn’t happen to anyone else, we’ll have a word with him. Pass me the HIV infected blood please nurse and I’ll just set up the transfusion.’

 

Although hostile to abortions – QUE??? – he backed the use of the pill for under-16s, under exceptional circumstances.

Such as in cases of the under 16s being trafficked by Dafydd’s gang.

After Denis Thatcher told him that sport would be hit by tough action against tobacco companies, Vaughan’s fanatically anti-smoking junior minister, Sir George Young, was transferred out.

Go down the shop and get me a pack of high tar Woodbines will you, I’m desperate for a fag.

Hansard, 22 May 1981, also records that Dr Oonagh McDonald, the Labour MP for Thurrock, asked the Secretary of State for Social Services:

(1) if he will list the names and addresses of those places approved by him in England and Wales under the terms of the Abortion Act 1967  that have special permission to terminate pregnancies of more than 20 weeks’ duration; and what prices were charged to patients for terminating pregnancies of 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, and 26 weeks gestational periods that were performed at each of the places in the years 1975 to 1980, respectively;

(2) if he will list the names and addresses of those places in England and Wales approved to terminate pregnancies under the Abortion Act 1967 of which he required information and assurances regarding prices paid by patients before giving approval; if he will detail against each the cost to the patients before giving approval; if he will detail against each the cost to the patients at 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18 weeks of pregnancy, respectively, and whether there can be extra costs; how many approved beds each has; how many abortions were performed by each in the years 1975 to 1980, respectively; and what were the periods of gestation for operations performed in the years 1975 to 1980, respectively;

(3) if he will list the names and addresses of those places in England and Wales approved to terminate pregnancies under the Abortion Act 1967 in which he does not require assurances about the prices charged for abortion operations; how many approved abortion beds each has; how many abortions were performed by each in the years 1975 to 1980, respectively; and if he will give all available information about the prices charged to patients.

Patrick Jenkin replied:

The 60 places listed below are currently approved for the purposes of section 1(3) of the Abortion Act 1967 for treatment for the termination of pregnancy. Places approved for the termination of pregnancies of more than 20 weeks’ duration and those required to give information on fees charged to patients are indicated on the list. The remainder of the information requested could not be provided without disproportionate cost (My emphasis. So there’s something that the House was not told.)

So even to the extent that Patrick Jenkin was prepared to admit, there were substantial facilities available in England and Wales to provide women with abortions, including late stage abortions, if they were prepared to pay. Many of these women will have been previously denied an NHS abortion. I note that some of these beds were in areas where there was known to be substantial problems with paedophile/trafficking gangs.

 

Oonagh McDonald then asked Jenkin how many abortions in each of the years 1970 to 1980 respectively have been performed in NHS premises in England and Wales that have involved payment by the patient; in how many of these procedures an overnight stay in a pay bed was involved; and in how many was it an outpatient treatment.

Jenkin replied by saying that the information requested was not available.

The literature supplied to students at UCNW in the 1980s made it clear that a termination at the ‘private clinic’ in Chester did not involve an overnight stay. The patient was kicked out immediately, which was why girls were asked to bring a friend with them to the ‘clinic’ to drive them home immediately. So all pretty substandard and dangerous and no doubt as Brown suggested, accompanied by conduct designed to make the patient feel as bad as possible about the whole process, lest they felt like raising the matter with any third parties.

 

Here’s a bit of background on the Wimmin who asked the questions in the House re abortion in May 1981, but did not follow up on the horror story to which the answers clearly pointed.

 

Jo Richardson was the Labour MP for Barking, 1974-94. She was succeeded in that seat by Little Nell Hodge.

Richardson was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and attended Southend High School for Girls. Her father had stood as a Liberal Party candidate in Darlington during the 1930s, but died while she was still young. Her mother was a member of the Congregational Church. 

Joining the Labour Party in 1945, Richardson began her political career as Ian Mikardo’s secretary. She co-ordinated the ‘Keep Left Group’ and went on to become the secretary of the Tribune Group before co-ordinating the Victory for Socialism Campaign. In 1951 Richardson was elected to Hornsey Borough Council and became Mikardo’s full-time secretary and working partner in his business which involved trade with eastern Europe.

Not only did the Hornsey area host a trafficking gang which by the 1980s was directly linked to Dafydd et al, but Ian Mikardo was the Labour MP for an East End seat which also hosted a trafficking gang with links to Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts. Children from the East End were sent to children’s homes and foster carers in north Wales, where they were abused and then trafficked back down to London as sex workers. Mikardo and his fellow East End Labour MP Peter Shore knew about this, colluded with and concealed it. Shore later assisted with the provision of hospice care for young people with AIDS, many of whom were former kids in care who had become infected during that period of their lives. See eg. posts ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’.

 

Jo Richardson was seen as a peace campaigner on the hard left of the Labour Party. She was a member of the Socialist Campaign Group but resigned in 1988 in protest at Tony Benn’s decision to challenge the Windbag for the leadership. She served as a member of the Shadow Cabinet.

Richardson was a ‘central figure of the feminist left and helped to expand women’s rights in Britain’, except of course for the rights of wimmin trafficked by Dafydd or forced into the hands of dangerous abortionists by the Top Doctors. Richardson was the head of a group of women MPs that supported the anti-pornography position. Which must be why she remained completely silent about John Allen’s porn empire, the stars of the material being kids in care from north Wales who were forced to work in the ‘specialised tastes’ porn market, including bestiality. See post ‘I Predict A Riot’.

Jo Richardson was a pro-choice campaigner. But not on behalf of wimmin in north Wales.

‘We Are Wimmin, We Are Strong.’

Jo Richardson:

  • Jo Richardson, MP, speaking at the 84th Labour Party ...

 

Jo Richardson served as an executive member of the NCCL, during the time in which PIE was affiliated with the NCCL and campaigning for paedophiles’ rights. Richardson wrote to PIE journal Childhood Rights, saying that she supported their campaign against corporal punishment.

In 2014 the UK press revisited the time in the 1970s when many Labour figures were deeply involved with the NCCL, at the time when the NCCL campaigned on behalf of PIE. Notable people named included Harriet Harman, Paul Boateng, Patricia Hewitt (who succeeded Greville Janner’s Parliamentary seat and became Miranda’s Secretary of State for Health) and of course Jo Richardson. Tony Smythe, who was a leading light in MIND for years while MIND concealed Dafydd’s crimes, was also a big name in the NCCL. Sue Slipman, who had been a student at Lampeter in the 1970s was a communist who then joined Dr Death in the SDP and was also big in the NCCL. More recently Slipman Chaired an NHS Trust. Anna Coote, who used to be married to Radio 4’s celebrity sociologist Laurie Taylor, was involved with the NCCL. Anna and Laurie’s son Matthew Taylor was Miranda’s policy adviser when Miranda was PM.

Even more worrying were the number of lawyers who were involved at a senior level with the NCCL during it’s Paedophile Period. They included: Little Nell’s husband Sir Henry Hodge, who became a High Court judge; Patsy Hewitt’s husband Bill Birtles, who also became a High Court judge; barrister Peter Thornton, who became the Chief Coroner of England and Wales; Catherine Scorer, the trade union legal officer; the Human Rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson; Howard Levenson, who became a High Court judge and who’s wife was a member of the GMC.

PIE shared an address in London with Release, an organisation established to help people in trouble as a result of being arrested for offences involving drugs. While patient F was illegally imprisoned in Denbigh by Dafydd in 1986, F contacted Release for help. F had originally been arrested after the Drugs Squad planted class A drugs on him and his then wife. F was really wowed when a man from Release came all the way up to Denbigh from London. F said that the man was very pleasant but told F that ‘there was nothing he could do’.

F had been fitted up by the police, violently assaulted by a senior officer at the police station, imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre for setting fire to his own house – although I have now been told that it wasn’t F who set the house on fire – possibly heard a murder being committed when he was in Risley and then was unlawfully transferred to Denbigh where he was detained, again unlawfully, for a year. I think that the man from Release could have done a great deal, but because he knew that Dafydd and the gang in north Wales were the main suppliers of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, he got the hell out of there and quickly. See previous posts for the full story re F and Release.

F was incredibly chatty and open about his extraordinary experiences. I imagine that the man from Release was told to go up to Denbigh and listen to what F told him. The man from Release would then have told his mates in PIE that F remembered a great many details about a great deal of serious crime that he had witnessed at first hand. It’ll have gone straight back to Dafydd.

Amazingly enough, Release received funding from the Home Office. The Home Office which colluded with the crimes of the trafficking gang in north Wales. That funding wasn’t given to Release to help people like F or the many other victims of Dafydd’s gang whom were targeted by the endemically corrupt Drug Squad in north Wales, it will have been given to Release to ensure that, like every other Charidee For The Distressed, they completely ignored anyone suffering at the hands of Dafydd et al. It was the prevailing arrangement with MIND, Wimmin’s Aid and the rest of the voluntary sector. Touch Dafydd and your supply of dosh will disappear.

 

Stephen Carnell was involved with the NCCL in the 1970s. Years later Carnell was jailed for three years after being caught in the possession of 12,000 indecent images and 450 films. Stephen Carnell was the election agent for Chris Bryant, who has been the Labour MP for the Rhondda since 2001. Chris Bryant is a former vicar who, when Thatch was destroying south Wales, was actually a member of the Tory Party. How he was ever selected for a safe Labour seat in the Rhondda I’d be most interested to know.

Bryant’s highlights include appearing on a gay dating website wearing only a rather naff pair of underpants, with his photo accompanied by the question ‘Oy mate, want a fuck?’ and just a few weeks ago gaining much praise when he spearheaded legislation to massively increase prison sentences for people convicted of offences against NHS staff and other ’emergency workers’. Bryant began campaigning on this matter and demanding Tougher Sentences after I began blogging about the paedophiles’ friends in north Wales framing patients for ‘attacking NHS staff’ who had complained about the mental health services.

The involvement with this bunch of utter fuckwits with people who campaigned on behalf of paedophiles thirty years ago is causing very, very big problems. Some of those involved in those campaigns were very serious offenders running criminal trafficking gangs. Others, probably including Harriet Harman, were simply too stupid to realise who they were involved with. However because of their ruthless nature, all of them, even those who were not paedophiles themselves, will now do anything, anything at all, to distract from and conceal their past involvement.

Anyone for Getting Tough On Dangerous Nutters Who Attack Angels?

See previous posts for information on the NCCL and those who were leading lights in that organisation.

 

Jo Richardson co-authored the pamphlets ‘Keep Left’ (1947) and ‘Keeping Left’ (1950) with Dick Crossman, Michael Foot and Ian Mikardo.

Dick Crossman was a big Labour figure of yesteryear. Crossman was the MP for Coventry East, 1945-74. Dafydd’s gang received kids in care from Coventry… Crossman held a number of roles in Harold Wilson’s Gov’t, including that of Secretary of State for Social Services, 1968-70, in which capacity he concealed the wrongdoing in north Wales. Crossman was Lord President of the Council, 1966-68 and thus was the visitor for UCNW when dear old UCNW was entirely under the grip of the trafficking gang. Crossman had many homosexual affairs when he was a student at New College, Oxford. He worked for the security services and was one of those Gov’t figures who used the security services to assist Dafydd et al rather than to stop them. Crossman’s diaries were considered to present such a potential embarrassment to Gov’t that before they were published posthumously in the mid-1970s, the Gov’t tried to block their publication.

Michael Foot was one of Crossman’s legal executors and opposed his own Gov’ts attempts to block the publication of Crossman’s diaries, although Foot was a Cabinet Minister at the time.

Crossman and Foot concealed the criminality of Dafydd et al, as well as the Westminster Paedophile Ring. People of my generation just remember Footie as being an old boy with a walking stick and a dog called Dizzy, but when he was young, Foot was a sexual predator and his wife, Jill Craigie, made references to his ‘extra needs’, which she told him to fulfil but to not discuss with her. See previous posts for more background on Richard Crossman and Michael Foot.

In 1985 KGB  defector Oleg Gordievsky named Jo Richardson as a confidential contact of his embassy.

.

Jo Richardson was Secretary of the Tribune Group (formerly Keep Left Group, Bevan Group), 1948-78 and it’s Chairperson 1978-79; a Member of Labour’s NEC, 1979-91; Opposition Spokesperson on Wimmin’s Rights, 1983-92.  Richardson was Chair of the Labour Party, 1989-90, under the Windbag.

 

Tam Dalyell wrote Richardson’s obituary which was published in the Indie in 1994. It contains some gems:

Jo Richardson in her heyday, and her heyday lasted from 1945 until 1990, was one of the dynamos of the Left in Britain. She was a ’cause and issue’ politician – against German rearmament, and Aldermaston marcher…’

Bertrand Russell co-founded CND in 1958 and led the Aldermaston marches. Russell was highly sexually predatory, including toward members of his own family and utilised the services of Top Doctors to wreck the lives of his son John and his granddaughter Lucy. As a teenager, Lucy complained about Russell’s behaviour toward her and found herself diagnosed as schizophrenic – just liker her dad was, her dad who always maintained that Russell was a nasty old bugger who did appalling things to other people. In his later years, Bertrand Russell lived at Penrhyndeudraeth in what is now Gwynedd. See post ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’ for more details on Russell and his family.

Bertrand Russell was a friend of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who married into the Bloomsbury Set (see post ‘R.I.P. Fenella Fielding’). During the middle years of the 20th century, Clough let out many of the cottages on his estate at Llanfrothen/Croesor to his bohemian friends from England. The local people suffered very greatly at the hands of Gwynne the lobotomist and Dafydd at the time. Clough and Russell and their friends knew about this but didn’t concern themselves with it. See post ‘The Village’. Russell was far too busy bringing about world peace to worry about a criminal gang under his nose and anyway the criminal gang did a few favours for Russell and his mates. It wasn’t Russell who ended up in an asylum, although his son and his granddaughter did. As did at least one woman who was the partner of one of the Croesor radicals, who found herself spending a few decades in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh when she had a pregnancy that was inconvenient to her partner. Who had run off with another woman anyway.

The Top Doctors knew what was happening to the female partners of Clough’s mates because, unlike the locals at Croesor who gave birth at home, Clough’s friends had their babies in the St David’s Hospital in Bangor, which was run entirely by the trafficking gang, who for decades performed a valuable service for powerful people who didn’t want their sexual conduct towards less powerful people becoming public. Such as a sexual abuser who worked as a psychiatrist and ran a paedophile/trafficking gang.

The local Welsh people of Llanfrothen and Croesor knew all about Dafydd and the gang as well as their links to Bertrand Russell, but as locals were swatted under the jackboot of the Top Doctors like gnats no-one worried about them. Until one of them got himself an education and became involved in political activism as a young man. Ever since, the paedophiles’ friends have been desperately doing everything possible to undermine and smear him. Who is this man? Merfyn Jones, the former VC of Bangor University, who found himself under constant attack from paedophiles’ friends in both high and low places, particularly after his wife died when the paedophiles’ friends of the Walton Centre found that there was just nothing that they could do when she became ill some years ago. Merfyn gew up in Llanfrothen, his mum and dad ran the pub there and they knew absolutely everyone. Merfyn has never told anyone that he has the dirt on the whole bloody lot of them, because unlike the paedophiles’ friends he never seemed to be vindictive and insane, but that is why they all really hate him. See previous posts.

The pub which Merfyn’s mum and dad ran was called The Brondanw Arms. Colloquially it was known as ‘Y Ring’, on account of it’s wrought iron decoration, which formed a sort of ring.

Here’s where all the action took place:

Tam Dalyell told us in Richardson’s obituary that If women’s causes now receive such dramatic prominence in the affairs of the Labour Party their advance is due in no small measure to the day-in-day-out campaigning of Jo Richardson. No group was too insignificant, no organisation too obscure to merit a visit.

Well I never saw Jo in Denbigh or at Hergest or even having a drink at The Brondanw Arms. She must have dropped in on a day when I wasn’t around.

As a councillor and later as an MP she championed women: ‘I am not all that interested in the high-achieving woman . . . I’m concerned about all the women with expertise and wisdom, who never get to first base; they’re poor, they’ve got kids . . . their lives are drudgery.’

I’m glad that you understand Jo! I was mates with loads of them for years. Er – they’re still poor and forgotten aren’t they?

The basis of Richardson’s feminism was among the poorer women of her council ward, and later her constituency of Barking…

Little Nell was most concerned about the Oppressed Wimmin of Barking as well when Little Nell took over the seat from Jo. There was a problem in Barking while all this Wimmin’s Wisdom was present in that constituency. Precisely that the residents of Barking kept voting for the BNP. Another little local difficulty was the hospital in Barking, which had an appalling death rate, particularly among women and newborns. Little Nell mouthed off non-stop about the BNP but she didn’t breathe a word about that lethal hospital killing women in childbirth and their babies. Not even when the scandal hit the press and an investigation was demanded.

The Labour Party never asked themselves why the voters of Barking were so magnetically attracted to the BNP. Not even when the BNP were following a strategy of meeting local people having a hard time and helping them with their housing and benefits problems etc.

Meanwhile…

  • Millie Tant by C-Caudrey on DeviantArt

 

In her maiden speech she [Richardson] supported better pay for primary teachers and nursery teachers.

Not that Richardson was ever concerned for better off women. Teachers certainly don’t enjoy the lifestyles of bankers, but they’re a damn site better off than care workers or Empowered Service Users.

She wanted the nationalisation of banks and insurance companies. She sponsored various domestic violence acts to aid battered wives.

While Jo Richardson and Wimmin’s Aid continued to ignore and freeze out victims of the trafficking gangs across the whole of the UK.

 

Richardson was Chairperson of the Black and Advisory Committee of the Labour Party. She was a member of ASTMS [later the MSF]’ and  ‘to the pleasure of her union’ she was made Labour Spokesperson on Wimmins Rights on the front bench… ‘had there been a Labour gov’t she would quite certainly have been the first minister for womens affairs in Britain – alas that honourable ambition was not to be’.

Well there wasn’t a Labour Gov’t for Jo to be in, the Tories remained in power for years because the Labour Party was full of foolish old hypocritical trouts like Jo Richardson, who did the bidding of highly paid professional people involved with serious organised crime and they sold the victims of the gangs which those white collar criminals were running down the river.

While Jo Richardson sang We Are Wimmin, We Are Strong, this dominated the landscape in north Wales:

 

  • PROJ3CTM4YH3M Urban Exploration | Urbex: Denbigh Lunatic ...
  • PROJ3CTM4YH3M Urban Exploration | Urbex: Denbigh Lunatic ...
  • Denbigh's North Wales hospital put up for sale AGAIN at £2 ...
  • North Wales Hospital, Denbigh - County Asylums

 

 

When Labour finally did get back into power, after Miranda had turned it into a branch of the Conservative Party and given key roles to the paedophiles’ friends, the UK was blessed with a Minister for Wimmin. It was Harriet. Who was succeeded by Baroness Jay of Paddington aka Jim Callaghan’s daughter. Who was succeeded by Patsy Hewitt. Who was succeeded by Tessa Jowell. The only reason we wimmin didn’t get Little Nell to represent our interests was that Miranda made her Minister for Children, after her loyal years of service as Leader of Islington Borough Council, when that Council’s children’s homes were infiltrated by a trafficking gang who murdered some of the children.

 

The Jo Richardson Community School in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham was named in the honour of this ruthless, dishonest, paedophiles’ friend.

 

When I read of what people like Jo Richardson did while mouthing off about helping Wimmin, I am reminded of someone with whom I was friends in north Wales, who had the full Paedophiles’ Friends Experience after he developed mental health problems. It culminating in years of abuse from the Top Doctors, one term of imprisonment on the basis of the perjury of the staff of the Hergest Unit and him watching a number of his friends commit suicide, before he was unlawfully denied all NHS treatment by the Top Docs. He was a pacifist and a kind and gentle person, who, after hearing that yet another Hergest patient had topped themselves or was up in court for ‘attacking an Angel’ would sometimes remark of the paedophile gang ‘you just want someone to break their fucking legs don’t you’. This man moved to Gwynedd in 1979 because of his enthusiasm for climbing. Where had he lived before that? North London. He had been a youth worker in Islington and he walked out of a social work course because he witnessed the neglect and abuse of clients by Haringey Council and told his tutors who ordered him to not report any of it. This man knew Little Nell and Howard Levenson. When he moved to north Wales, he made the mistake of telling a few people what he had witnessed in Islington and Haringey.

 

Now to Dr Oonagh McDonald, the other Labour MP who questioned Dafydd’s mate about abortion. McDonald was born in Stockton-on-Tees, Co Durham, the daughter of Dr HD McDonald, an Irish protestant minister. The family moved to London and she was educated at the Roan School for Girls in Greenwich, East Barnet Grammar School and King’s College London, where Oonagh gained a Master’s in Theology in 1962 and a PhD in 1974. She worked variously as a teacher, lecturer, researcher and management consultant. Oonagh taught philosophy at the Bristol University, 1965-76. D.G.E. Wood was a medical student at Bristol in the late 1960s and many of his network had links with Bristol University. David Hunt, who as a Minister in the Welsh Office and then Secretary of State for Wales spent years colluding with Wood, Dafydd and the gang, studied law at Bristol University in the mid-1960s. Hunt is now a leading light in international law firm DAC Beachcroft, which acts for the MDU. See previous posts.

MacDonald also served as a member of the Financial Services Commission in Gibraltar and was a senior consultant on international regulatory and public policy issues.

McDonald was elected Labour MP for Thurrock in Essex in 1976. She became PPS to the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Joel – later Lord – Barnett in 1977. Joel Barnett was responsible for devising the Barnett Formula, which was used to assign funding from Westminster to Wales and Scotland. It was accepted by everyone that the Barnett Formula was unfair to Wales and over-generous to Scotland, but despite many conferences and working parties, the dear old Barnett Formula remained firmly in place. McDonald was Opposition Spokesman on Defence, 1981–1983 and then Opposition Spokesman on Treasury and Economic Affairs, 1983-1987, under the Windbag, during those years when the Windbag planned his election campaigns upon the need to ingratiate himself to the Top Doctors and Angels, including those in north Wales committing serious crime.

In 1998, McDonald was given a CBE for services to financial regulation and business. So she received something during the Waterhouse Inquiry for keeping her mouth shut then, even if it wasn’t a peerage.

McDonald is a Director of the British Portfolio Trust, Complaints Commissioner for the London Metal Exchange, ICE Futures and Virt-x and a member of IMF’s Expert Roster.

Good to see that a woman who wasn’t capable of challenging Dafydd and a dodgy dangerous abortionist was subsequently given responsibility for controlling the excesses of global capitalism.

 

I noted that in the list of the private hospitals that Patrick Jenkin admitted were carrying out abortions in the late 1970s/early 1980s, not only did the Grosvenor Nuffield in Chester appear, but so did the Nuffield Hospital in Taunton. I knew someone who booked into the Nuffield Hospital in Taunton in about 1974. He had suffered a major stroke many months previously, had regained a bit of movement, but wanted to go into the Nuffield for a couple of weeks to give his wife a rest. Off he trundled and three days later there was the most unholy row. His wife received a phone call from the Top Doctors, maintaining that he had ‘gone mad, was violent’ and that if a solution could not be found to this problem, they would certify him and it would be off to Tone Vale (the asylum near Taunton) for him.

His wife, as well as other members of the family, went straight down to Taunton. They found a very distressed stroke patient who was quite sane but bloody fuming, because he maintained that he had discovered that some of the Angels at the Nuffield in Taunton were running a prostitution racket IN the hospital and were offering sex to patients. The Top Docs gravely explained that they couldn’t have such allegations made tch tch and if the family agreed to take this madman out of the Nuffield – but nonetheless agree to pay for his planned stay in the brothel which had been pre-booked – they would say no more about it. If the dosh and removal of the patient was not agreed to, there were already the Dafydds of Somerset ready and waiting to certify him.

The elderly man returned home, where he was reassured by one of his relatives who had spent years working as a nurse in Taunton and then Bridgwater, that he wasn’t mad, that there was indeed a prostitution racket going on at the Nuffield, it had been going on for some while and was widely known among the medical professionals in the area.

I was only about 12 when all that kicked off but I remember it well Dafydd and unfortunately for you, I inherited rather more of the genetic loading of the angry old boy who wanted to do battle with the Bastards of the Nuffield than the Appeasers.

There was a network across the whole of the UK by that time which continued for years, run by corrupt medical and welfare professionals, who were involved in the sex, drugs and porn trade. I will be blogging more about this soon.

By the way Taunton network – MR RAINEY. The butcher of an orthopaedic surgeon who insulted and brutalised his patients and when he thought that he could get away with it violently assaulted a few of them as well. Absolutely legendary throughout Taunton and Bridgwater and became a millionaire to boot. Not one person dared put a stop to him.

You think that my grandpa caused you problems Top Doctors  – he wasn’t a blogger who had encountered Dafydd… By the way, grandpa freaked the Top Doctors out because he tried to ring the police to report the prostitution racket in the Nuffield. In the same way that I and others repeatedly reported the members of a trafficking gang to the police…

 

Here’s a few Interesting Facts:

Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor aka the Duke of Westminster, a close friend of Carlo’s and the President of the City of Chester Conservative Association when Sir Peter Morrison was MP for Chester, was a Committee Member of the Nuffield Hospitals from 1995 until his death in 2016.

Virginia Bottomley, a former psychiatric social worker who was Minister of Health, 1989-92 and Secretary of State for Health, 1992-95, was a non-executive Director of BUPA, 2007-13. Ginny’s daughter Cecilia is a Top Doctor (Obs and Gynae) who undertakes private work on behalf of BUPA.

Enid Rowlands, who is married to Huw Vaughan Thomas -the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council when the kids in the care of Gwynedd were being abused and trafficked to various locations including Dolphin Square (see posts ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ and ‘Are You Local?’) – was/is a member of the Board of BUPA. Enid has also been a member of the GMC; a Trustee of the GMC Pension Scheme; Chair of Victim Support; a member of the North Wales Police Authority; a member of the S4C Authority; Chair of the North Wales Health Authority; Chair of Education and Skills Wales; Chair of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority. Enid served on the North Wales Health Authority at the same time as did Dr Peter Higson. Peter Higson worked as a clinical psychologist at the North Wales Hospital, then was the manager of that institution. Higson is now Chair of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. His sister, Ruth Hussey, is the former Chief Medical Officer for Wales. Huw Vaughan Thomas was appointed Auditor General For Wales after his time as Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council. Huw picked up that job when Jeremy Colman, the previous Auditor General for Wales was jailed for child porn offences. See previous posts.

Here’s Enid, lest anyone wishes to perform a citizen’s arrest if they bump into her, because it’s fairly clear that she is in no danger of being apprehended by the North Wales Police:

The President of the Denbighshire branch of the Royal College of Midwives, 1955-75, knew all about the disappearing women and babies. She was Geraldine Mackeson-Sandbach, the daughter of a wealthy landed family in north Wales, who also owned sugar plantations in the West Indies. Geraldine’s son Ian Lawrie Mackeson-Sandbach was appointed the most senior Freemason in north Wales in 1997, just in time for the Waterhouse Inquiry, where he remained until the cover-up was complete and the dust had settled. Ian’s daughter Antoinette Sandbach worked as a barrister in London until the paedophile gang called for reinforcements some ten years ago, whereupon Antoinette felt the pull of hiraeth and returned to Paedophile HQ in north Wales. Within months she had become a Tory AM. Much as Antoinette was dedicated to the welfare of farmers in north Wales, at the first opportunity she bagged a safe Tory Westminster seat in Cheshire, where she remains. See previous posts for details of the adventures of Antoinette, her ancestors and the Causes Close To Their Hearts.

 

Abortion has remained a political hot potato and a focal point for campaigners ever since the Abortion Act of 1967. There have been a number of attempts to legislate to reduce access to abortion as well as to widen access. The arguments used by anti and pro abortionists are very familiar and have remained virtually unchanged for years, as indeed have the identities of a number of those involved in leading the campaigns.

In none of these campaigns has anyone ever drawn upon or even mentioned the grisly lessons of the Top Doctors Of North Wales.

In Jan 1988, the Lib Dem MP David Alton tried to cut the limit for legal abortions to 18 weeks by the introduction of a private members bill but the bill ran out of time. Alton’s bill caused much debate and mobilisation of campaigners. At the time, I was asked by a Top Doctor at the Royal Free what I thought about David Alton’s attempt to change the law. I told him that I that David Alton may have very genuine feelings on the matter but that I suspected that he did not realise just how terrible the situations of some women were. I was thinking of some of the victims of Dafydd et al in north Wales at the time, but I didn’t say that. I was told by the Top Doctor that the problem with making it easier to access abortion was that ‘callous women’ would ‘take advantage’ of it.

Callous women do exist, indeed they were appointed as Wimmin’s Ministers in Parliament repeatedly, but there was no-one so callous as those Top Docs in north Wales, who while running a trafficking gang unlawfully prevented women from accessing NHS abortions and forced them into the hands of a dangerous abortionist in England who demanded money. I know for a fact that the Royal Free Top Doc who pompoused away to me knew about Dafydd and the gang in north Wales and the situation re access to abortion. Furthermore, the Royal Free was one of the institutions which was providing a big umbrella for Dafydd.

Duncan Orme, when he was the Students’ Union Welfare Officer at UCNW in the mid-1980s concealed the members of the trafficking gang who was occupying the Student Health Centre as well as the harm to students which they inflicted and was rewarded for this with a place on the graduate trainee programme for NHS managers – at the Royal Free (see post ‘I Predict A Riot’). When I was at UCNW, Liz Stables, the Angel who was facilitating the trafficking gang in UCNW, told me that a Bangor student had been offered a place to read medicine at the Royal Free.

The Mr Big who was the link between Bangor University and the London Medical Schools was Lord Brian Flowers, a nuclear physicist who held a number of very senior posts at London University, including that of VC. Brian Flowers concealed en masse research fraud, patient harm and the trafficking gangs who were operating in the London hospitals. Flowers later served as the VC of Manchester University. Flowers was originally from Swansea and remained loyal to his old muckers in Wales. See previous posts.

I accept that there are people who genuinely feel that abortion is wrong and I don’t think that they should be shouted down or have their views dismissed on the grounds that they are a bunch of old misogynists, because not all of them are. However, the Top Doctors are so flawed and have so grossly abused their positions, that I suggest that decisions regarding abortion, at least early abortion, should be taken right out of their hands. The most sensible thing would be to make early abortion available on demand and then for someone to have a long hard think about how the messy and grim realities of late abortion or abortions on very young, vulnerable or uncertain women are addressed, because these decisions cannot be left solely in the hands of such an abusive profession.

 

Anti-abortionists were scuppered yet again in an attempt to achieve a significant tightening of the law in June 1990; not only that, but their attempt backfired due to a complex voting system and resulted in a further liberalising of the law. This was achieved solely by the casting vote of then Deputy Speaker, Sir Paul Dean, which was seen as probably the most significant act of his political career. Sir Paul Dean was not a man whom one would have expected to be particularly sympathetic to liberalising abortion.

Paul Dean was the Tory MP for Woodspring (formerly north Somerset), 1964-92. North Somerset was the neck of the woods from which D.G.E. Wood came; his father was a Top Doc in the Bristol/north Somerset area. Dean was succeeded as the Tory MP for that seat by the right wing tosser of a Top Doc, Liam Fox (see previous posts).

From 1982 until his retirement, Dean served as Deputy Speaker, first under George Thomas, then under Bernard Weatherill. George Thomas sexually assaulted children and young people for years, throughout his whole career. This was widely known in Parliament, to the police and in south Wales, where Thomas was a high profile Labour MP and a leading light in the Methodist Church. A great many people pushed out a great many boats to protect George Thomas and the Top Docs of Wales pushed out more boats than most. Paul Dean knew that Thomas was molesting children, as did Bernard Weatherill.

Dean served as Second Deputy Chairman of Ways and Means, 1982-87 and First Deputy Chairman of Ways and Means, 1987-92. He was preceded by Ernest Armstrong in both posts and was also preceded by Ernest Armstrong as Deputy Speaker. Ernest Armstrong was the Labour MP for North West Durham, 1964-87, who in his capacity as an MP as well as previously when a Sunderland Councillor, had concealed the paedophile ring in the north east of England, which was linked to the ring in north Wales and supplied both staff and children to the gang in north Wales/Cheshire. It was Ernest Armstrong who did Miranda so many favours when Miranda went after his seat at Sedgefield and then built his stronghold in the north east. Ernest Armstrong’s daughter Hilary succeeded him as MP for North West Durham. Hilary Armstrong became one of Miranda’s inner circle (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’).

Paul Dean was born in Nantwich, Cheshire, into a family who owned farms in Cheshire and north Wales. He was educated at Ellesmere College, Shropshire and Exeter College, Oxford. At Oxford, Dean was President of Conservative Association and also the Oxford Carlton Club. He served with Welsh Guards during WWII, but after the war he abandoned family farms and became  tutor at Swinton Conservative College in north Yorkshire. Paul Dean then worked in the Research Dept of Conservative Central Office, 1957-64. At the time, that Dept was known to be dominated by a number of senior staff who propositioned boys for sex. When Matthew Parris worked there just a few years later, he found that holidays in Italy were being organised by the staff of that Dept at a place known as the Villa of Vice or the Villa of Shame, where ‘willing boys’ were supplied for parties. See previous posts.

Paul Dean was a junior Minister in the DHSS, 1970-74. After the Tories’ election victory in 1970, Dean was made junior Minister for social security. He was a parsimonious minister, opposing the abolition of tax on pensioners earning less than £2,000 a year. He proudly introduced the 1973 Social Security Act and attacked Barbara Castle for ‘vicious political vandalism’ when, on Labour’s return to office the following year, she delayed implementation of parts of it. Dean worked under Secretary of State Sir Keith Joseph, the MP for Leeds North East, 1956-87. Joseph’s constituency was at the heart of Jimmy Savile and Police Corruption Country and Joseph spent his whole career concealing organised abuse. It was Keith Joseph who took on as his adviser for children in care Barbara Kahan, a social worker who was married to Top Doctor Vladimir Kahan. Kahan colluded with organised abuse as did her husband. Kahan had been the manager of a number of social workers who were later identified as paedophiles, including Louis Minster. Once she became a Gov’t adviser, she worked with many more social workers, teachers and academics who were using their work as a front for child abuse. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’.

There is no way that Barbara and Vladimir Kahan and Keith Joseph did not know about Dafydd.

When we were undergrads, Brown and I wrote to Keith Joseoh about student finance. We wrote separately and from our university addresses. When Joseph replied – he wrote quite a rude reply, the same one to both of us – he made it clear that he knew that Brown and me were friends and also that we both came from Bridgwater in Somerset. We had not mentioned this in our letters.

Keith Joseph was actually the architect of Thatcherism. Unlike Thatch, he was intelligent enough to understand it, but he blew his chances at becoming Tory leader when he made a speech warning that the lower orders were breeding like rabbits and Something Had To Be Done.

The outcome of that rather rash speech was this:

 

Paul Dean made someone happy, because he was given a knighthood in 1985, the year in which the threats to Brown and me from the Top Docs really began to escalate and which my documents show was the year that the Welsh Office busied themselves with the beginning of their plan to blow me out of the water. In 1985 Mary Wynch won her appeal to the Master Of The Rolls and made legal history by suing Dafydd, thus receiving coverage in the London-based media. Then Alison Taylor refused to shut up.

In 1993, after my career in medical research had been ruined and the media careers of another two witnesses had also been destroyed, Sir Paul Dean became Baron Dean of Harptree of Wedmore in the County of Somerset. I don’t know what Dean’s connection to Wedmore was, but Gary Glitter lived at Wedmore for quite some time before he ended up in prison in Bristol for child porn offences. Professor Robert Owen, a surgeon from Liverpool who doubled up as the Medical Ombudsman for the Welsh Office and was Dafydd’s mate who concealed Dafydd’s crimes (see post ‘In Memoriam – Professor Robert Owen’) had a daughter who lived at Shapwick, a village on the Somerset levels not far from Wedmore. Ian Dunbar, the tame Prison Service Governor who was called in by the bent Home Secretary Douglas Hurd after the 1989 riots at Risley Remand Centre to try and get a rapidly unravelling situation back under control, was based in the south west and lived on the Somerset levels. See post ‘Include Me Out’ and other posts.

After the Risley Riots, there were frank admissions, even from the Home Office, that conditions at Risley were completely unacceptable. The women’s wing was shut down and major changes to the institution did follow. Michael Mansfield emerged as the hero of the hour when he represented some of the rioters, who were in Risley after being charged with serious crime. At no point did anyone mention that the hospital wing of Risley was full – and had been for years – of kids in care from north Wales and psych patients of Dafydd and it was they who were repeatedly found dead after ‘committing suicide by hanging’. See post ‘Include Me Out’. The patients whom I knew who had been in Risley all said ‘it’s full of murderers there, I was terrified’. It was Michael Mansfield’s clients that they were terrified of. There were kids from the north Wales children’s homes as young as their early teens in Risley and because they were on remand, they had not been convicted of any offence. That contingent of the Risley population were nearly always transferred to Denbigh, where once they had been sectioned for a year, the charges against them were dropped. Some of them were never seen again and most of the others died soon afterwards. Michael Mansfield’s clients went on to be found guilty as charged and received long prison sentences. None of this received any press coverage.

Another person who lived on the Somerset levels was a man who taught me at school, Ray Stanlake. I have been told that Stanlake was in touch with Dafydd and the gang…

 

Paul Dean, who was fairly obviously at the centre of many cesspits, was a Director of Charterhouse Pensions and the brewers Watney-Mann and Truman; a consultant to Grand Metropolitan and Antony Gibbs Pension Services; a Governor of BUPA and the Deputy Chairman of the PR firm Roward Panton. Paul Dean was on the governing body of the Church in Wales. Some of whose clergyman were fully on board with Dafydd et al.

Paul Dean’s rot went back a long way. From the outset, he was a supporter of Edward Heath, who was then Leader of the Opposition In 1969, Dean became Heath’s Deputy Spokesman on social security. Throughout his leadership of the Tory Party, Heath colluded with Dafydd et al. Dean was a big fan of private health and pension schemes.

 

One additional note about Paul Dean and his casting vote which accidentally liberalised abortion. It only happened because the anti-abortionists had tried to get the legislation that they wanted by the use of a tied vote on an amendment on the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill. Only days previously there had been a major Commons row over the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill, which people like Enoch Powell were hoping to use to outlaw research on embryos. One MP became very, very angry during the debate, because he had lost two children to an hereditary problem and knew that a third child would die as well. He got so angry that he banged his fist on a chair and damaged the chair. That MP was Dafydd Wigley. He was the Plaid MP for Caernarfon at the time and he knew that the trafficking gang operating under his nose had killed witnesses, including my house mate Anne. Dafydd Wigley really wanted the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill to pass.

So how did you persuade Paul Dean to use his casting vote to support you then Lord Wigley? Anything to do with that letter that I wrote you providing details of my experiences at the hands of Dafydd et al, to which you wrote me a very nice reply, saying that if there was anything that you could do at a Parliamentary level you would? Then when the intimidation of me became even worse, I wrote to you again. I didn’t hear back.

Ooh that was in about 1990 wasn’t it??

Yma O Hyd!

 

Now here’s someone else who was fully aware of the crimes of Dafydd and all related gangs who has successfully gone under the radar: Alan Jinkinson.

Alan Raymond Jinkinson is a trade unionist who was born in Sheffield. Jinkinson was Deputy General Secretary of NALGO, 1983-90; General Secretary of NALGO, 1990-93; General Secretary of UNISON, 1993-96, preceding the very good friend of the paedophiles, Rodney Bickerstaffe (see post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’).

NALGO was the union which represented huge numbers of local gov’t employees, including many who staffed and managed children’s homes and were named as abusers or colluding with abuse. Some NALGO reps were named in abuse scandals, including one rep in north Wales/Cheshire. It was accepted that the NALGO rep in north Wales had abused children in care, so the solution to this was to allow him to take early retirement. He was a bit worried that he wouldn’t be able to begin drawing his pension early as well, but a letter from a helpful psychiatrist sorted that and the member of Dafydd’s gang was able to go off into the sunset into a comfortable early retirement avoiding any criminal charges.

There was one social worker in north Wales whom NALGO refused to support, although she was a fully paid up member – Alison Taylor. NALGO washed their hands of Alison and provided no support when Gwynedd County Council sacked her in Nov 1987, after informally suspending her in Dec 1986. In Dec 1986, Dafydd had me unlawfully arrested and imprisoned in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and two/three days later Ollie Brooke, the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School was imprisoned for child porn offences. Ollie’s gang had direct links to Dafydd and Lucille.

Alan Jinkson became the General Secretary of the newly merged UNISON on 1 July 1993. My trial at Bangor Magistrates Court for ‘staring at a social worker in Safeways’ took place in July 1993. It was planned to be a trial for screaming and swearing at her, putting her ‘in fear of immediate violence’, but once she was in the witness box, she started crying and admitted that she had lied to the police. The social worker concerned, Jackie Brandt, was a member of Dafydd and Lucille’s gang and had previously unlawfully detained me in Ysbyty Gwynedd. See post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’. No complaints of mine against Brandt were ever investigated and neither was her perjury. I had to cough up £60 for looking at her in a supermarket.

Stop The Cuts!

 

Jinkinson stood for the Labour Party in the Orpington by-election, 1962. A supporter of Hugh Gaitskill, Jinkinson he attacked Eric Lubbock – a lifelong paedophiles’ friend himself (see previous posts) – the Liberal Party candidate for supporting unilateral nuclear disarmament. Lubbock won the seat, while Jinkinson took third place with 12.4% of the vote, losing his deposit.

A wonderful article about Jinkinson was published in the Indie on 29 Oct 1992. Here are some extracts:

Alan Jinkinson has rapidly become the most powerful public sector trade unionist in Britain…next year he is due to become head of the new Unison organisation of 1.4 million public sector workers, the largest union in the country.

Note to Gov’ts of all colours: There’s 1.4 million of us, many of us with the dirt on the health and social care services…

Political posturing is not in the character of Mr Jinkinson, who carefully weighs up each comment before making it, avoiding remarks that will upset any faction within the union, or which can be interpreted as favouring militancy. This balancing act is on display when he stresses that a public sector pay freeze, or award at less than the rate of inflation, would be met by a ‘measured response’, while hinting that some of the more militant members of the union could become difficult to restrain from taking strong action.

FINGS BREAK…

 … concedes that stringent public sector pay control is a very real possibility. ‘There appears to be a conspiracy between the bosses and the Government to attack public sector pay over the next 12 months…clearly angered by some of the rumours that came out of Conservative Party conference. ‘Allegedly, an unnamed minister said that it would be nice to have a Nalgo strike. That is provocative, irresponsible and does nothing for good industrial relations.’ He stresses that Nalgo and the other public service unions would respond with restraint. ‘That kind of view will not force Nalgo or anyone else out on to the streets.’
The only people forced onto the streets were the kids in care and Empowered Service Users.

Nalgo and the other leading public sector unions Nupe and Cohse have been in merger discussions for several years…the new union Unison will be in place next July. Mr Jinkinson is to be the general secretary until early 1996, when Rodney Bickerstaffe, currently of Nupe, is expected to take over.

The General Secretary of COHSE was David Williams, who trained as an Angel at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh in the Dark Ages. See post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’.

…stressed that the unions would not co-operate in any exercise designed to cut the real wages of public services staff… the truth is that public sector workers have been taking more than their share of the pain for some years now.

Duw it’s hard. When we get caught abusing the kids in our care we have to get Dafydd to provide us with a letter to enable us to draw our pension early.

Take the NHS trust hospitals as an example. The pay of senior managers has increased enormously, in contrast to the pay of clerical and administration workers, which has fallen in net earnings by about 5.2 per cent. The best part of 100,000 of these workers are paid below the European Community minimum decency threshold of £207 per week.

Alan Jinkinson could have brought down those overpaid Trust senior managers overnight – including those in north Wales who were running a trafficking gang – if he’d blown the whistle on their criminality, corruption and concealment of patient harm and deaths. But he didn’t because some of his members were responsible.

‘The response of our members to pay policy will very much depend on that key word ‘fairness’. The fairer any policy is perceived to be the more measured any response will be. There are about 6 million in the public sector workforce, some of these covered by review bodies. If it was perceived that those covered by review bodies were treated better, the reaction would be very hostile indeed.

Note to Gov’t: We can muster 6 million at a push… Whatever would happen if Fings Started To Break?

Those not covered in the NHS already need an increase of 25 per cent to bring them up to comparative levels.

Don’t make me fucking laugh. In regions like north Wales, public service workers were in clover.

Mr Jinkinson does not see it as his role to help the Government in bringing about its revolution in public sector culture. ‘I don’t like CCT (compulsory competitive tendering), or all the talk about an ‘enabling’ local authority. We’ve got these citizen’s charters by the sackful, but they will not succeed until the public sector workforce is well-paid, well-managed and well-trained.

The sackfuls of Citizen’s Charters produced by John Major were indeed worthless, because the public service workers knew that they could abuse their positions with impunity. After all, they knew where the bodies were buried and Fings Break.

As well as merging into one giant union, the public service unions are also coping with the transfer of their members away from public employers into the private sector; whether into an NHS trust, a private company winning service contracts…Even within the local authority sector there is a strong move away from national pay bargaining towards local negotiation. According to Mr Jinkinson, such changes, though they pose threats, also provide opportunities.

Here comes the deal with New Public Management and neoliberalism… Ooh our members won’t be unemployed after all, they will be encouraged to form themselves into companies and consultancies,  where they will be commissioned by their former employers in the NHS and local authorities to ‘deliver services’ to their previous ‘client groups’ and they will continue to abuse them exactly as before. With the added bonus that those being abused will be told that they are Empowered and Have A Choice.

‘It has been an inevitable stimulus to Nalgo to adjust its delivery of services to its members. One or two people join a trade union for political reasons, but for most people it is a practical question of the value of the benefits at the workplace. We have had to adjust our ways of delivering services and train many hundreds of stewards that are now involved in local bargaining.

Told you so. The paedophiles’ managers and union reps made damn sure that the paedophiles picked up the new contracts.

The trend is towards devolution of provision of support services to district level. Unison is a catalyst to an even more radical approach to service delivery, which will be member-centred, a member-led union, serving all, from the highest-paid manager to the lowest-paid individual.’

Er, hasn’t really worked out that way has it?

One challenge facing Unison is persuading blue-collar and white-collar workers that they have a shared outlook. Tension between Nalgo members and other public sector workers has heightened in recent years as managers have overseen the contracting out of manual work.

The bastards have turned on each other in their pursuit of filthy lucre.

Now the boot is on the other foot, with Nalgo members facing commercial competition for their own jobs.

SCRAAAAP!!!!

Mr Jinkinson is adamant that the contracting out of work must not be used as a means of reducing rates of pay, and that members should resist pay levels being cut to make tender bids more competitive. ‘We say to our branches, ‘talk to your employers, get them to open their books, get into a rational dialogue, and get the best deal available, which is also the best deal for service quality and the local community.’

Fings Break…

We want to encourage the authorities to put in the most competitive bids, but there shouldn’t be cuts in pay to bring this about.’

The Empowered Service Users can take the hit, not Our Members.

Even though the change in public service culture is bitterly resented and opposed by the public sector unions, they are making parallel changes. Local authorities are recognising that many of their powers have gone, so they adopt a new role of community voice and vehicle for lobbying.

They gangs run the charidees, the ‘Service User Involvement Groups’, the Advocacy Associations…

Similarly, Mr Jinkinson sees Unison as a means of bringing about broader change in society.

I’m still waiting Alan.

He explained: ‘A union of 1.4 million people will have enormous influence in society at large, including the European Community, as a driving force for a return to a public sector culture, which very many members of the public now yearn for…

Their wishes for a genuine change in culture were ignored because it was Jinkinson who wielded power over Gov’ts, not the people in the receiving end of the shite, abusive, neglectful public services.

What is needed is increased public spending on housing, schools, sewers, and so on. What we don’t need is to bear down on public sector spending. What is missing in the economy is that indefinable thing called ‘confidence’. Cuts in public spending will bring a further twist to the deflationary spiral, and that is the opposite to what the economy needs at the present time.’

There never were substantial Cuts until very recently, as a result of the aftermath of the financial crisis in 2008. The Empowered Service Users saw no improvement in their services, because the services were run for the benefit of Jinkison’s members, not the Empowered Service Users. Any public sector workers that challenged the scam were sacked and like Alison Taylor, found that Mr Jinkinson and his mates were not in the least bit interested in their plight.

 

While I was reading some old political almanacs recently, I was reminded of a name from the past, which to my shame I had completely forgotten about, that of David Penhaligon. David Penhaligon was the Liberal MP for Truro, who was elected in 1974. Not only did Penhaligon know all about the doings of Jeremy Thorpe, the Liberal MP for North Devon and Liberal Party leader, but when Jeremy became a laughing stock following that rigged trial in 1979 after he was charged with conspiracy to murder his former gay lover Norman Scott and the Liberals dissolved into utter confusion but as ever kept their hopes up, David Penhaligon was considered to be likely to be their next leader. The thing that stopped him was being involved in a most unfortunate car accident which killed him. On Dec 22, 1986. Approx one week after Ollie Brooke went to prison and about 10 days after Dafydd had me unlawfully arrested and imprisoned.

David Penhaligon was brought up in Truro. He attended Truro School, where he knew musician Roger Taylor of Queen and then Cornwall Technical College. Penhaligon worked for Holman Brothers in Camborne as a research and development engineer working on rock drilling. By 1973 he had qualified as a Chartered Mechanical Engineer; he also took over from his father a sub-post office in Chacewater from 1967 (after his marriage in 1968 to Annette Lidgey, she ran the business). His Liberal activities led to some work in local broadcasting.

Penhaligon’s decision to join the Liberal Party was inspired in 1963 when, aged 19, he was an important witness to a murder case. His evidence, which supported the case of the defendant Dennis Whitty, was not enough to prevent him from being convicted and hanged. Penhaligon was appalled by capital punishment. He led the Truro Young Liberals and built up the local party (which had been the weakest in Cornwall) into one of the strongest; he was the chair of the Cornish Young Liberals, 1966-68. However he was not selected as Liberal candidate for Truro in the 1966 General Election (nor for any other seat) and he was also rejected for Falmouth and Camborne in 1968 apparently because his strong Cornish accent was thought unattractive.

By the mid-1980s, everyone loved David Penhaligon’s Cornish accent, what with Old Etonians, City Slickers and cousins and friends of Lilibet having taken quite a battering as a result of Jeremy Thorpe’s activities.

 

 

In the 1970 General Election, Penhaligon fought the Devon constituency of Totnes, when the previous candidate Paul Tyler transferred to Bodmin. Bodmin had previously been held by Peter Bessell for the Liberals. Bessell was a good mate of Thorpe’s and it was Bessell who gave evidence at Thorpe’s 1979 trial that Thorpe had openly discussed killing Norman Scott and the ways in which that could be done. During the trial, the famously biased Presiding judge, Joseph Cantley, trashed Bessell, Norman, Thorpe’s co-defendants and Andrew Newton, the man who openly admitted that he had been hired to kill Norman. The only person who could be believed was Jeremy and that was because he was married to Lilibet’s cousin and had shagged both Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon, although that snippet wasn’t mentioned.

Bessell emigrated to California in 1974 and died there in 1985. David Penhaligon was one of the west country Liberals who would have known the full details re Jeremy and Norman. It was widely known that Norman was being threatened, harassed, robbed and beaten up when he lived in Devon and that Jeremy was behind it. Norman openly talked about his affair with Jeremy and how Jeremy had dumped him and had behaved appallingly ever since.

Justice Cantley might have told the world that Norman was a fantasist but at the time of Jeremy’s trial, I knew two people in Somerset who had Seen The Photos that Norman had of him and Jeremy… One of those people was a travelling salesman who flogged Kleeneze products no less and the other one was the baker from Stogursey, Mr Lovell. After Jeremy was acquitted, Mr Lovell was convinced that someone would have another go at bumping Norman off. To the amazement of many people, Norman remained alive. However Mr Lovell’s wife didn’t. Mr Lovell’s wife suffered from depression and had been a patient at Tone Vale. Tone Vale colluded with organised abuse, although not to the same extent as Dafydd and Denbigh. Mr Lovell’s wife was declared much improved and came home from Tone Vale. So imagine how shocked everyone was when many months later, Mr Lovell came home to find that she had hanged herself. No-one asked any questions, it was all a bit ‘cor poor old Mr Lovell, his wife must have been hiding how bad she felt’.

Mr Lovell had a teenage son and I think that it might have been him who found his mum’s body first. Mr Lovell’s son wanted to go in the Army and he was an admirer from a distance of Brown’s dad, because he once called at the house when Col Brown was in uniform and it wowed him. He had been in the Army cadets, seemed to get over his mum’s death but had the most terrible shock when he was rejected by the Army when he left school. He worked in a factory in Bridgwater instead. I am fairly sure that a few years later, he was found dead as well. Ooh well, he got it from his mum didn’t he…

No-one in the west country disbelieved Norman, they all knew that Jeremy was as guilty as they come. David Penhaligon will have known as well and he’ll have known many more people than I did who were witnesses to Jeremy’s shenanigans.

 

In 1970, Penhaligon polled poorly in the context of an election in which the party as a whole suffered. However, Penhaligon had acquired useful experience of fighting election campaigns and picked up additional tips from Wallace Lawler’s practices in inner-city Birmingham. David Penhaligon wasn’t a complete hayseed then.

In 1971 Penhaligon was easily selected as candidate for Truro, a seat which did not look an easier prospect than Totnes. This gave him three years in which to get his name known and meet his prospective constituents and when the election came in Feb 1974 he won nearly 21,000 votes and cut the majority of the sitting Tory MP to 2,561. Truro became the fourth ‘target’ constituency for the Liberals for the next election – which would take place within months because of the inconclusive outcome in February.

Penhaligon was readopted and worked on trying to persuade the remaining Labour voters in the seat to back him. In the Oct 1974 election, he was elected with a majority of 464 votes – the only Liberal gain of that election. In Parliament he swiftly won a reputation for humorous speeches, urging a national minimum wage and increased state pensions. He voted for fellow Cornish MP John Pardoe over David Steel in the Liberal leadership election of 1976. John Pardoe’s brother lived in the village where I spent my teenage years and Brown and I used to work on his farm in the summer holiday. See previous posts.

Penhaligon was hard to place in conventional political terms: he changed his mind over capital punishment, initially voting against in December 1974, but supporting it in December 1975. Which sort of reminds me of that old Python joke in ‘Election Special’: ‘A little pink pussycat has taken Barrow-in-Furness, that’s a gain from the Liberals there’.

Although frequently speaking on national issues, it was clear that Penhaligon’s main concern was local. He became known in particular for defending Cornish tin mining and local fishing fleets.

When the Lib-Lab pact was first mooted in March 1977, Penhaligon was initially opposed and spoke against it. He later came round and told the Liberal Assembly in September 1977 that it had achieved an ‘economic revolution’. I missed that particular revolution. At a special Assembly in January 1978 Penhaligon was a star speaker in persuading the delegates representing Liberal members to continue the pact. The pact allowed the Liberals to influence Gov’t legislation.

Part of Penhaligon’s support for the Lib-Lab pact was his fear that an early general election would result in a poor performance for the Liberals, and his own seat might be vulnerable. In October 1978 after the pact had lapsed, he explained that “Turkeys don’t volunteer for Christmas!”. The scandal over Jeremy Thorpe – who was charged with conspiracy to murder in August 1978 – was a matter of particular concern and Penhaligon urged Thorpe to stand down and the Liberal Party not to endorse him. When Thorpe did seek re-election, Penhaligon refused to help his campaign. Despite his narrow majority and the belief that he was the most vulnerable of the Liberal MPs, Penhaligon kept his seat with a much larger majority (8,708) in the 1979 General Election.

The Lib-Lab pact involved two desperate parties with much to hide doing a great deal of wheeling and dealing while both trying to shaft each other. At the same time, no-one trusted Jeremy, who was known to be capable of striking a bargain with anyone at all in his desperation to gain power, as he had when he almost joined Ted Heath’s Gov’t some years previously.

After the bomb exploded and Jeremy was arrested and charged, some months before his trial, an alternative newspaper in Rochdale printed allegations that Cyril Smith, another high profile Liberal MP, was sexually abusing boys. David Steel was so concerned at the damage that would be done to the Liberal Party and to Thorpe’s chances of being found not guilty if Smith’s activities found their way into the London-based media, that he utilised the services of the crooked barrister George Carman QC to ensure that the stories about Smith did not appear in the UK wide media.

George Carman was Jeremy’s barrister at the 1979 trial. Carman had until then been based in the north of England and he had lived in Cheshire. He mixed with bent coppers, journos, gangsters and sex workers and had a serious drink and gambling problem. He was also very violent. People did not mess with George Carman, they were very, very frightened of him. Carman knew about Dafydd and the gang in north Wales/Cheshire and after Carman died it was revealed that although he had never acted for Jimmy Savile, he had been retained by him, which was quite enough to have shut everyone up re Savile’s offending.

Getting Thorpe off made Carman’s reputation. He moved to London, where one of his pupil barristers was Miranda. Cherie also worked in Carman’s chambers until 1988. In the 1990s Carman lived in Wimbledon, along with so many of the Top Docs of St George’s, including Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain, Ollie Brooke’s friend and one of those who had colluded with Ollie and the gangs linked to him, including Dafydd’s in north Wales/Cheshire.

For the full background on George Carman, see posts ‘No Ordinary Methods’ and ‘No Ordinary Methods – Supplementary Post’.

 

In June 1981 Dr Death entered Penhaligon’s life, when the SDP-Alliance was formed. The Dr Death who was the MP for Plymouth and who personally knew some of the Top Docs in north Wales involved in the trafficking gang. Dr Death’s fellow travellers in the Gang Of Four all knew about Dafydd and the gang. See post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You’.

David Penhaligon supported the SDP-Liberal Alliance from the start, although he resented SDP attempts to take control of the Liberal Party’s target seats. He was named in January 1982 as one of the ‘firemen’ who would sort out any disagreements between the parties. Penhaligon was particularly prominent in the 1983 election campaign in which he spoke for the Liberal Party on Transport, Industry and Energy. After the election he became an early proponent of a merger between the SDP and the Liberals under a single leader, largely to avoid disputes over allocations of Parliamentary seats.

From 1983 Penhaligon headed the Liberal by-election unit which planned the campaigns in individual seats. At the Liberal Assembly in September 1984 he was chosen as President-elect of the Liberal Party and served as Party President, 1985-86. This carried with it the job of presiding over the Liberal Assembly at the end of his term.

Penhaligon was appointed as Chief Spokesman on the economy in 1985. He was a central figure in planning the Alliance General Election campaign at the time of his death.

At 6.45 am on 22 December 1986, he was travelling to a post office to meet workers there when a van skidded on an icy road and hit his Rover SD1 car near Truck Fork, Probus, Cornwall. Penhaligon was pronounced dead at the scene. The van driver was not prosecuted for the accident. The inquest held in March 1987 strongly suggested that Penhaligon was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, nor was the driver of the van, who was thrown out of his vehicle and suffered two broken legs as a result. Penhaligon’s injuries were extensive fracture of his ribs and fracture of the neck vertebrae. The cause of death was damage to the aorta as well as massive damage to the spleen and liver.

David Penhaligon was very much a west country figure, but the other stronghold of the Liberal Party was of course in Wales. In his various efforts to have Jeremy reigned in, at one point when Norman Scott was living in Wales, a lady who found out about Jeremy’s dreadful conduct was friends with Emlyn Hooson, the Liberal MP for Montgomery. She made representation to Hooson re Jeremy and the Liberal Party set up an inquiry. It ended with Lord Frank Byers, the grandfather of the Labour MP Lisa Nandy, hurling abuse at Norman and Norman walking out and subsequently making an extensive statement to the police. Which was ignored. Hooson told people that he was horrified at Thorpe’s activities, but he didn’t try to stop them or even speak up after Thorpe was arrested and charged. Hooson was one of the corrupt barristers on the Chester and Wales Circuit who spent his career colluding with Dafydd and the gang. Hooson grew up in Denbighshire and was a close friend of Sir Ronnie Waterhouse.

If Emlyn Hooson knew about Jeremy, the rest of polite society in Wales will have. Norman and Jeremy both had links to Wales, including to Denbigh. After he dared tell people about his problems with Jeremy, Norman was discredited by that tried and tested method, a Top Doctor. Namely Desmond Curran of St George’s Hospital Medical School. They have a long and fine tradition there…

See previous posts, including ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’ for the full background on the Jeremy and Norman story.

 

Penhaligon was killed at the end of 1986, which was the year that the Westland Affair nearly brought down Thatcher’s Gov’t. The Westland Affair was a huge scrap within the Tory Party over the fate of an ailing Somerset engineering company in the Liberal MP Paddy Ashdown’s constituency. The scrap was between Thatcher’s Cabinet Ministers and was precipitated by Michael Heseltine, who was born in Swansea, had been the MP for Tavistock in Devon, 1966-74 and who really, really wanted to be PM (see post ‘A Legend Lives’). The Minister of State at the DTI at the time, the Dept at the centre of the scrap, was Sir Peter Morrison. Sir Anthony Meyer, a north Wales Tory MP with Ugandan interests who knew about Dafydd and the gang benefited from the Westland Affair (see post ‘You Know I’m No Good’). A number of the other MPs who took advantage of the Westland Affair were known to people in Somerset who knew me and knew what was happening to me at the hands of Dafydd and the gang. Some of those individuals did very, very well for themselves after Westland (see posts ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’ and ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’.)

 

There were just so many unscrupulous people joining in the feeding frenzy during 1986 and so many people with a great deal to lose that it wouldn’t have been in the realms of fantasy to imagine that a few of them had got together and decided to deal with the dangerously popular Mr Penhaligon, a man who knew Peter Bessell and was on the scene back in Bessell and Thorpe’s heyday.

David Penhaligon’s son Matthew has been an active member of the Lib Dems and was the Party’s candidate for the Mayoralty of Hackney in May 2006.

 

David Penhaligon’s cousin was the actress Susan Penhaligon. Susan was one of the fruitiest actresses of the 1970s, up there with Angharad Rees, who was the daughter of Dafydd’s mate Professor Linford Rees at Barts (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). Susan and Angharad will have known each other and they’ll both have known a few politicians as well, particularly as for many years Susan was active in the Liberal Party. During those years when Jeremy Thorpe was still spoken of as a natty dresser, a charming man about town and a possible future PM, rather than simply being the butt of homophobic jokes by teenage boys.

Susan’s TV roles included parts in ‘Bouquet of Barbed Wire’, ‘Count Dracula’, ‘Doctors’, ‘Casualty’ and ‘Tales Of The Unexpected’. On stage she starred in ‘Death Trap’ and her films included ‘House Of Mortal Sin’, ‘Nasty Habits’ and ‘No Sex Please We’re British’.

From July 1986, David Penhaligon had employed Matthew Taylor, an Oxford graduate, as his research assistant. Taylor was selected to follow him as Liberal candidate for Truro and was duly returned in the Truro by-election in 1987, where he remained as the MP until he stood down in 2010.

Matthew Taylor is the adopted son of Kenneth Taylor, a TV script writer best known for ‘The Jewel In The Crown’. In 2008 Matthew traced his birth mother and learnt that his great-grandfather had been another Liberal MP Sir Percy Harris who served later as an allied-Progressive MP.

Taylor was educated at Treliske Preparatory School (now known as Truro School Prep) in Truro and University College School in Hampstead. Alan Barker, the husband of Trumpers, was the Headmaster of University College School for a number of years, probably when Matthew Taylor was there. Trumpers aka Baroness Jean Trumpington was the junior Health Minister who appointed Jimmy Savile to the task force which managed Broadmoor. In Trumpers’ younger day she had been one of the weekenders at Cliveden, along with the call girls, Russian spies, Gov’t Ministers and members of the Royal Family; Trumpers’s mate Sally Norton had been Bill Astor’s first wife. See previous posts.

Matthew Taylor studied at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. Taylor campaigned in his first general election in 1979 when he was 16 and joined the Cornwall anti-nuclear alliance a year later. While at Oxford, he was elected as President of the Oxford University Student Union, 1985–86 on the Lib/SDP Alliance ticket.

Matthew Taylor succeeded Penhaligon’s former Truro seat in early 1987 and retained it for the Liberals at the 1987 General Election. That was the election of such high stakes that all parties concealed the rapidly escalating chaos in north Wales and Dafydd and the gang designed an elaborate trap in the weeks before the General Election which was supposed to culminate in me being imprisoned for a serious offence just after it. Risley Remand Centre and the Mental Health Act Commission were fully in cahoots, but everything unravelled when a nursing officer and a Sgt in Bangor Police Station didn’t tell the lies that they were expected to tell. See posts eg. ‘Workers’ Play Time’ and ‘Security, Security’.

Taylor’s celebrity status as the Baby Of The House gave him early access to political media and TV programmes including the BBC’s ‘Question Time’ while being an MP in a small party brought quick promotion to the front bench as local gov’t spokesman.

Matthew Taylor had a successful track record in backing leaders of his party, including Paddy Ashdown and Charles Kennedy, whose successful leadership campaign Taylor led in 1999 after Ashdown stepped down. His reward was to be made the Party’s Treasury spokesman, 1999-03, under Charles Kennedy. So that’s where Matthew Taylor was when the Waterhouse Report was published. Taylor was then Chair of the Lib Dems, 2003-05, as Charles Kennedy was busy killing himself with alcohol but instead of trying to save his life the Lib Dems just worried about what would happen if it became public that Kennedy was drunk on TV.

Taylor announced in 2007 that he would not be seeking re-election to Parliament and did not stand in the 2010 General Election. The Truro and St Austell constituency he represented was then abolished after a boundary review.

So what became of this minor politician who had never been in Gov’t and bagged his seat as a result of the untimely and unexpected death of a man who knew a great deal about a VIP paedophile gang that looked as though it was in deep trouble with the jailing of Ollie, Dr Big in London? He was given a peerage of course. In July 2010. Which was just about when it became clear that a criminal re-investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal would be launched and that a judicial review would be taking place of the Waterhouse Inquiry in the face of so many allegations that it was a huge cover-up. Oh yeh and Brown and I began publishing about our experiences with the north Wales mental health services as well.

In December 2015 Matthew Taylor was appointed President of the National Association of Local Councils.

 

Taylor married Vicky Garner, a former Director of pressure group Surfers Against Sewage, in 2007.

I don’t know what this lot are campaigning against sewage for, they have nothing to offer public life but sewage.

Taylor & Garner Ltd provides business consultancy services, based in Roche, Cornwall.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch in Wales, the Welsh Gov’t have announced that the Top Docs and Angels are getting an even bigger pay rise than the one which they have received in England. In a week of dreadful headlines about the dire state of the NHS in Wales, accompanied by stories of scandal, neglect and fuckwittery. By the time that pay rise hits the bank accounts of the Top Docs, the Public Inquiry into the ‘Tainted Blood’ Scandal will be well underway and it will be clear to the general public that the Top Docs knew that thousands of NHS patients were knowingly being given infected blood products which would kill many of them, but the Top Docs said not a word to anyone but other Top Docs. Who of course were not agreeing to accept those infected blood products themselves or for their families.

Carwyn is thinking of backing the Baroness of Ely as the next FM for Wales because she is in possession of ovaries. She is also in possession of a husband who is a Top Doctor who knew about that infected blood and who will also bag the pay rise. The corks will be popping in the Baroness’s house.

As for those who were witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd’s gang and who think that they haven’t appeared on this blog yet because I’ve forgotten about them, no I haven’t. I’ll introduce here another witness to the appalling abuse and neglect of some Empowered Service Users in Bethesda as well as to the framing of F and the hijacking of his child to whom he was denied access and who was given to a bunch of child abusers by Gwynedd Social Services. I am talking about a Blodwyn aka ‘Blod’ of Coetmor Road, Bethesda. Blod had a baby called Liam at pretty much the same time as F’s baby was born. Blod and her husband knew the family who lied about F and fleeced him of his money and property. Blod had been wanting a baby for years but she didn’t have Liam until she was in her late 30s. Blod was of the opinion that Liam was the result of the fertility Top Docs at Ysbyty Gwynedd. I’ve got news for Blod; those Top Docs did not know their arses from their elbows, they really were clueless, Liam will have had sod all to do with whatever they thought that they were doing.

When Liam was a toddler, there were people in Bethesda who had what would now be called ‘child protection concerns’ about him. Not that anyone said anything, Blod was an aggressive unpleasant piece of work and it was only Empowered Service Users who ever found that they were sleighted as being a risk to children. Blod however found one Empowered Service User very useful indeed. A vulnerable woman in Bethesda who’s whole family were grossly neglected by the Top Docs and Arfon Community Mental Health Team and who was unable to have children herself. Blod cultivated her company and in return for a glimpse of Liam, was subjected to hard luck stories by Blod regarding Blod’s poverty – stories which were not true – and the Empowered Service User was so concerned at the thought of a Baby Going Without that she ended up handing over a good proportion of her disability benefits. I watched the scam escalate over a period of months until it became very obvious that there was exploitation almost as good as that to which F had initially been subjected as he was snared by predators.

One day I made a comment to one of the GPs in Bethesda surgery about what was going on. I was told that it didn’t matter, because buying things for Blod’s baby gave the Empowered Service User so much happiness, what with her not being able to have children herself. The Empowered Service User as a young woman had been due to inherit a considerable amount of money from her mother after her mother died. She was swindled out of nearly all of it by a crooked lawyer in cahoots with a Top Doctor. Bethesda surgery knew about that swindle, so a few years later they encouraged another one.

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’).

 

You think that Nerys caused you problems Top Doctors, so it was best if no treatment was available for her brain tumour? Well you ain’t seen nothing yet, to quote from Smashie and Nicey’s favourite track.

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?

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.
