Britain In Agony

I have recently read Alan Watkins’s book ‘A Slight Case Of Libel: Meacher v Trelford and Others’, about the 1988 libel trial that resulted when Michael Meacher sued ‘The Observer’ over an article that they had published about Meacher in October 1983. Meacher sued ‘The Observer’ because they published a piece written by Alan Watkins which questioned Meacher’s claim to be the son of a farm labourer and told the readers that Meacher’s father was an accountant. It transpired that Meacher’s father had been an accountant, but had at one point indeed worked on a farm, but that farm was a farmed owned by famille Meacher. Meacher lost the libel case, appealed, but subsequently dropped the appeal.

Michael Meacher has featured on this blog before (see post ‘A Vintage Crop’). In the 1980s he was the darling of much of the left of the Labour Party and was perceived to be a potential credible leader from the left. Tony Benn had been savaged so badly and for so long by the media that he had been quite damaged in the process, although he did have a following. Meacher was framed as being a Sensible Rational MP on the left ie. not mad with staring eyes like Wedgie Benn.

Meacher’s special interest was in welfare and he was a most enthusiastic griller of Tory Ministers in this area. I explained in my post ‘A Vintage Crop’ that Meacher knew about Dafydd and the associated gangs, he knew about the serious criminality in north Wales and he never uttered a word. Meacher was a graduate of New College, Oxford, a favourite recruiting ground for the British security services and an institution that has produced many people on the left in political life who concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al and the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see post ‘A Study In Tyranny’), as well as the LSE. Scores of people who colluded with Dafydd et al and who were even directly involved in the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal or who concealed it, were themselves LSE graduates.

Before being elected as MP for Oldham West in 1970, Meacher lectured in  Social Administration at York University and then at the LSE.  He also served as the Chairman of the Hull branch of the ASTMS, the union led by Clive Jenkins. ASTMS represented many professional and managerial staff in the NHS who were not Top Doctors and it evolved into MSF. See eg. post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’. It was a deeply corrupt union and I witnessed at first hand when I worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School how the MSF reps concealed and colluded with criminality and patient harm and used their knowledge of this for personal benefit, even their knowledge of the trafficking gang linked to Dafydd et al in north Wales which was facilitated by St George’s. See previous posts. Jenkins was hated by many for being the ultimate in trade union baron hypocrisy; when I was growing up among Tories in Somerset and hearing all about the sins of trade union leaders with their snouts in the trough it was Clive Jenkins who was usually being discussed. Jenkins wasn’t very popular on the left either, but he was very successful in mobilising middle class people. Jenkins boasted that one of his hobbies was organising the middle classes and I suspect that the reason why the union movement today represents the oppressed Top Doctors, Angels, social workers, teachers, lecturers and public service managers rather than people on zero hours contracts or those cleaning offices at 2 am is at least partly a result of the efforts of Lord Clive Jenkins. He was a smug twat, a smug twat from south Wales and furthermore he was the smug twat who was substantially responsible for the Windbag becoming Leader of the Labour Party. Jenkins knew all about the victims of Dafydd et al and he knew about those who were really dispossessed but he wasn’t interested in them. See previous posts eg. ‘I Warn You…’ for more information on Clive Jenkins.

Hull was on the patch of a trafficking ring with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales, so with Meacher being Chairman of Clive Jenkins’s Hull outpost, Meacher was a man who could have expected to go far.

In 1969 Meacher wrote a pamphlet for the Fabian Society, ‘The Care Of Old People’. The institutional care of the elderly at the time was a disgrace and indeed the brutal, dehumanising abuse of the elderly at Ely Hospital, Cardiff erupted in a national scandal in 1969. In its defence Ely Hospital stated that things were even worse at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh but no-one was complaining about that… See previous posts eg. ‘All The Ingredients Of A Scandal…’.

After writing that Fabian Society pamphlet, Meacher never returned to the subject of the care of the elderly again, because he knew just how grim the situation was throughout the entire UK and he did not dare blow the lid off. Michael Meacher certainly wasn’t going to expose Dafydd or let anybody else expose Dafydd either. Meacher had plenty of opportunities to take a shot at Dafydd and the gang, particularly as he was a junior Minister in the DHSS under Barbara Castle, 1975-76, Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Social Security, 1983-87 and Shadow Secretary of State for Social Services, 1989-92. Instead Meacher, like those other Health Ministers under Castle, David Ennals and Dr Death and indeed Castle herself, colluded with Dafydd et al. See previous posts. Dr Death personally knew some of Dafydd’s Top Doc pals in north Wales and elsewhere.

When the Windbag became Leader of the Labour Party in Oct 1983, Meacher ran as a candidate for the Deputy Leadership. The others who ran for the Deputy Leadership were also all concealing Dafydd’s criminality: Fattersley (see post ‘I Warn You…’), Denzil Davies (see post ‘How Much Greater Is A Man than A Sheep?’) and Gwyneth Dunwoody (see previous posts). Dafydd’s colleague Dr Tony Francis knew the Windbag from their time as students in Cardiff and of course the Windbag’s wife had grown up in Holyhead, where her parents and parents’ friend the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79, Lord Cledwyn, had kept the lid on Dafydd and Dafydd’s predecessor Gwynne the lobotomist since the Dark Ages. See previous posts eg. ‘The Cradle Of Filth’ and ‘How Much Greater Is A Man Than a Sheep?’. The abusive social workers of Gwynedd and Clwyd must have been delighted at the prospect of their old mucker Meacher from the LSE being Deputy Leader of the Labour Party with the Windbag as Leader. No wonder they constantly explained the dangers of The Cuts to everyone, while delivering kids in care to provide sexual services to Fatcher’s friends and Gov’t Ministers in Fatcher’s Britain.

The union NUPE, which represented many social workers and and other staff involved with the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and other child abuse scandals, supported the Windbag for the leadership and Meacher for the deputy leadership. One social worker whom NUPE refused to support although she was a paid-up member was Alison Taylor. Jeremy Corbyn had worked for NUPE before he was elected as the MP for Islington North in 1983 and Jezza remained on excellent terms with NUPE after he became an MP; Jezza sat as a member of Haringey Council, 1974-83. Dafydd’s gang had links to the trafficking gang that was operating in Haringey Council as well as in Islington’s children’s homes at the time.

In 1983 Mary Wynch had begun suing Dafydd et al and Brown began receiving murder threats from the gang. When I told my tutor at UCNW and Dr D.G.E. Wood, the GP in the Student Health Centre at UCNW – who was facilitating Dafydd’s gang but I didn’t know that then – about the threats to Brown I was ignored. I knew of other students who were being targeted by the gang who told tutors at UCNW as well as Wood and they were ignored too.

Previous posts eg. ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’ and ‘A Local Boy Made Good’ described how Brown and I had bizarre and distressing experiences with people whom Brown had met through the small ads in ‘New Statesman’, to which Brown had responded when he was in search of a bit of extra work. I have been told that these people were members of the security services who had targeted us, the security services having placed us under surveillance. The ‘New Statesman’ at the time was required reading for people interested in Labour politics and it was the butt of ‘Private Eye’ spoof articles with titles like ‘Whither The Town Halls?’ and ‘Town Halls In Crisis’. I never bothered with the ‘Whither The Town Halls?’ articles in the ‘New Statesman’ because I thought that they were mind-numbingly boring, but had I realised that the Town Halls were in crisis because so many local politicians were  partners in a people trafficking business with those from whom we were receiving so much grief in north Wales, I’d have taken rather more notice of them.

Brown, I and our friends did try getting involved with leftist politics when we were young, but we all gave up because the whole field seemed to be dominated by such unpleasant mad people who were doing anything but working on behalf of those having a hard time. They were of course being led by those whom I have named on this blog…

‘New Statesman’ was dominated politically by people like Meacher – indeed when Richard Crossman was Editor, he grumbled about being assailed with unsolicited articles from Michael Meacher and his wife Molly. People like the sociologist Peter Townshend were on the Board of ‘New Statesman’ in those days; Townsend and Brian Abel-Smith had followed in the footsteps of Richard Titmuss at the LSE as left-leaning academics researching disadvantage and poverty (see previous posts). They all knew about the organised abuse and neglect of people at the very bottom of the heap by the welfare state but they refused to ever publish a word about it, even when gangs of organised criminals preying on kids in care and vulnerable patients became a huge problem in the 1970s. One was not allowed to level one word of criticism at the NHS and social services, even if one was a witness to the most serious wrongdoing.

The other group of people who wielded great influence over the ‘New Statesman’ was the cultural arm of the left, whom Brown had much contact with because of his academic interests. Since I began this blog, I have been given information that even the most Revered and Right-On of those cultural critics – and the most powerful – Professor Stuart Hall, worked very hard to shaft Brown because Brown was frighteningly able, was a witness to what was happening in north Wales and wouldn’t abandon Empowered Service Users. See post ‘Life In Cold Blood’.

It was the ‘New Statesman’ who in 1996 published Richard Webster’s libellous article about Alison Taylor, ‘Can A Whistle-blower Be Wrong?’ At the time, the ‘New Statesman’ was owned by Geoffrey Robinson, who has been the Labour MP for Coventry West since 1976. It was Robinson who in 1998 had to resign from his Gov’t post, along with Mandy, over the business of that loan for Mandy’s mortgage. Dafydd’s gang had links in Coventry and Dr Colin Berry, a Top Doctor from Walsgrave Hospital, Coventry was involved in covering up Dafydd’s criminality in 1989. Alison Taylor successfully sued the ‘New Statesman’ – she represented herself – and it was admitted that they had published Webster’s article after assuming that Alison would not be able to afford to sue them for libel. See previous posts.

 

In spite of all his efforts, Michael Meacher didn’t become Deputy Leader of the Labour Party. Fattersley triumphed instead and thus the nation was offered the chance of voting for the Dream Ticket in the next General Election. Which was in June 1987. This was the result:

In June 1983, a barrister called Tony Blair was elected as the Labour MP for Sedgefield. Miranda had been a pupil barrister of George Carman QC, who knew about Dafydd et al and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Carman had defended Jeremy Thorpe when Thorpe stood trial for incitement to kill and conspiracy in 1979. Miranda’s wife Cherie was a barrister who worked in Carman’s Chambers until 1988. Cherie grew up in Crosby in Liverpool, an area with a sizeable Catholic population where many of the corrupt professional people who colluded with Dafydd’s empire in Liverpool lived. See post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’. Cherie and her family were/are faithful Catholics. There was a major problem in Liverpool with organised abuse in children’s homes and other institutions, including those run by Liverpool Catholic Social Services. Many of those involved in the abuse had links to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. See previous posts eg. ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’.

Cherie’s dad was the actor Tony Booth, the Scouse Git who hung out with the famous faces of stage and screen of the 60s and 70s and eventually married Elsie Tanner of ‘Coronation Street’ fame. Tony Booth was active in the Labour Party  and was also notorious as a shagger. Dafydd’s gang had links to the circle that Tony Booth hung out with. See previous posts eg. ‘Workers’ Play Time’ and ‘My Arse – It’s Tatifilarious’. Cherie’s friend and colleague Michael Beloff QC was the son of Lord Max Beloff, who was mates with Ioan Bowen Rees, the County Secretary of Gwynedd County Council, 1974-81 and Gwynedd’s Chief Executive, 1981-91, while the paedophile gang made merry in the children’s homes in Gwynedd. In 1996, Michael Beloff was the legal adviser for Municipal Mutual, the insurers of both Clwyd County Council and the North Wales Police and it was Beloff who ensured that no-one except lawyers and insurers saw the Jillings Report into the abuse of children in care in Clwyd when the Report was completed in 1996. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’

One of the Directors of Municipal Mutual at the time was Lord Merlyn-Rees. See post ‘I Predict A Riot’. Merlyn Rees was born in Pontypridd, south Wales, was elected as the Labour MP for Leeds South, 1963-83 and then Morley and Leeds South, 1983-92. At the heart of the land of Savile, a corrupt police force and a huge paedophile gang with links to the gangs in Wales. Merlyn Rees was Secretary of State for N Ireland, 1974-76, under Wilson and then Callaghan, in which post Merlyn Rees concealed the VIP paedophile ring which was based at Kincora Boys’ Home, which, it has been repeatedly alleged, included Sir Anthony Blunt and Lord Louis Mountbatten. Rees was Home Secretary, 1977-79, under the Windbag’s mate PM Jim Callaghan. In which capacity Merlyn Rees concealed all that serious crime caused by Dafydd and the gang.

 

Michael Meacher’s first wife Molly – they divorced in 1987 and Michael Meacher married again in 1988 – was educated at York and London Universities and qualified as a social worker in 1980. She then worked as a social worker in north London. Molly Meacher was Director of Information for the National Association of Citizens Advice Bureaux; Lucille Hughes has been involved with the senior management of the CAB for years and Ronnie Waterhouse was also involved with the CAB (see previous posts). Molly Meacher subsequently married Lord Richard Layard, the LSE Professor who was behind the ‘happiness nation’ idiocy, which goes neatly in hand with Professor Mark Williams’s Mindfulness, which was invented by Williams when he worked with Dafydd’s gang in Bangor in the 1980s (see previous posts).

Destitute and suicidal? It’s your own fault suckers, you’re not thinking in the right way and furthermore you are responsible for your own happiness!!! No, there is no key worker available this week, they’re all at a Mindfulness retreat doing their Training, at the agreeable Trigonos Centre in Cwm Nantlle, at the edge of the lake, eating healthy nutritious meals of organic veg, followed by a lovely glass of wine in the evening. So it’s your choice if you kill yourself in your hard-to-let flat on the council estate in Caernarfon or Bangor, you must Take Responsibility. When the key workers have finished their Mindfulness Training at Trigonos, they’ll be off to Dr David Crossley’s All Wales Psychotherapy Network Training Session, held at a nice hotel someone where in mid-Wales, where they will receive lectures and seminars on Compassionate Therapy.

Want to know why the outrageous scam that was David Crossley’s Training Sessions came to an end??? Because when Merfyn Jones was Chairman of the Betsi, he and his CEO Mary Burrows stopped the NHS funding for those troughing bastards’ jollies, so the freebies in hotels for the associates of a gang of paedophiles ended. Crossley et al told everyone that Merfyn and Mary had placed Clients In Danger by Cutting Essential Training.

Baroness Molly Meacher has been/is: Board member, Deputy Chair and then Acting Chair of the ineffective Police Complaints Authority, 1994-2002; Chair of the East London and City Mental Health Trust from 2004; Chair of the Clinical Ethics Committee of the Central and North West London NHS Trust, 2002-08; Chair of East London NHS Foundation Trust, 2007-12; President of the Haemophilia Society; Chair of Dignity in Dying; Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Drug Reform Policy. Molly Meacher has also worked for the Mental Health Foundation. So Molly has spent many years in the bosom of the abuse and neglect of Empowered Service Users. But Molly was off to a flying start early in her career. In 1979 Molly authored ‘New Methods of Mental Health Care’. Well those new methods worked a treat didn’t they. Most appropriately in 1991 Molly authored ‘The Mentally Disordered Offender’ – presumably when she noticed all those mentally ill people in prison for bizarre and trivial offences. Or having simply been framed. It was in 1991 that Tony Francis and Dafydd and the gang worked so hard to try and have me jailed; I even had to go all the way down to the Royal Courts of Justice at The Strand from Bethesda (see previous posts). Documents now in my possession show that the MDU and Tony Francis’s lawyers knew that Francis et al had perjured themselves.

Meet the gangsters’ Moll:

The Baroness Meacher aka Lady Layard
Official portrait of Baroness Meacher crop 2.jpg

 

After Michael Meacher and the Moll divorced in 1987, Michael Meacher married again in 1988, during the libel trial, to Lucianne Sawyer, a physiotherapist. The Meachers have certainly done well out of the NHS.

 

Alan Watkins’s book concentrates on the intricacies of Meacher’s attempt to sue ‘The Observer’ for libel, but there is much interesting information in Watkins’s book about Meacher and others. By the time of the libel trial, Meacher had ended up in hot water as a result of a questionnaire that Meacher had sent out to all the Labour members of District and Regional Health Authorities in the UK in Aug 1984, when Meacher was Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Social Services, ie. the Labour Party’s chief spokesman for health and social services.

By Aug 1984 Brown and I had raised our deepest concerns with regard to the conduct of Gwynne the lobotomist and I had written to the GMC and Professor Eric Sunderland, the Principal of UCNW. The Chair of the GMC at the time was the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Lord John Walton, who was fully on board with Gwynne and Dafydd’s gang (see previous posts) and Eric Sunderland was a well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend who was also a fully paid-up umbrella of Dafydd et al, but I didn’t realise that until recently. See previous posts. By Aug 1984, Mary Wynch was on her way to the Master of the Rolls re her legal case against Dafydd and the gang. Alison Taylor had blown the whistle on the abuse of kids in care in Gwynedd and had already appeared before one formal disciplinary hearing.

 

Meacher had written to all the Labour members of Health Authorities regarding the ‘blatant political bias’ within the membership of some District Health Authorities and Regional Health Authorities – Meacher maintained that the Tories were packing Health Authorities with their mates – and he also complained about the Top Doctors lobbying. Top Doctors do indeed lobby, they ruthlessly dictate to Gov’ts of all hues what that Gov’t will do and make it clear that if orders aren’t followed, Fings Break. The Top Docs were busy fighting Thatch and Ken Clarke (Minister of Health under Secretary of State Norman Fowler at the time) and how the Windbag wanted the support of the Top Doctors!!! The Windbag knew as well as I did that although a few Top Doctors are a pale shade of pink – as long as they remain highly paid that is – a great many of those at the top of the profession are True Blues and very, very greedy. They were not going to vote for the Windbag and furthermore many of them were/are the most ferocious social and intellectual snobs. Thick Windbag, the boyo from the Valleys? No, they weren’t going to go for that, no matter how far the Windbag pushed the boat out to help Tony Francis et al.

It was around the time that Meacher sent those questionnaires out and in the following months that much of the ‘evidence’ of the degenerate Stormy Daniels-style life led by me, Brown and my friends was collected by Dafydd’s gang, as detailed in previous posts and the comments following posts eg. ‘Meet The Gwerin!’ and ‘On The Occasion Of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’. The orgies, the drugs, etc. One wonders how we had time to do well in our finals and pursue postgrad work.

By Aug 1984 I had been referred to Dr Tony Francis who, while doing everything possible to reassure me that he was supportive, was actually in on everything that Dafydd’s gang were doing and had only relocated to north Wales in the early 1980s from the team of Dafydd’s associates at Manchester University in response to the distress flares being sent up by Dafydd and the north Wales contingent in the wake of Mary Wynch’s litigation. Francis too was collecting ‘evidence’ to demonstrate that I – as well as other witnesses – could not be believed.

Does the Windbag know anything about the smear campaign that was conducted by his mate Tony Francis against complainants re the criminality in north Wales?

Michael Meacher, despite being of the left, voted for the Windbag in the Labour leadership election of 1983, not for Eric Heffer, the left wing candidate. Although Heffer and his wife Doris were doing Dafydd’s gang a great many favours themselves over in their constituency of Walton, Liverpool (see post ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’).

 

Meacher’s questionnaire and accompanying letter asked the recipients to liaise with other Labour supporters on the Health Authority; perform an analysis of how The Cuts had affected the NHS in their area; gather politically useful case histories – how about the case history of that young woman and her mates in north Wales who’d complained about a lobotomist who was running a paedophile gang then Meacher??? – and to provide the contact details of one Labour member of the authority with whom Michael Meacher could liaise regularly. Meacher urged Labour Health Authority members to ‘develop socialist principles for health care’.

I have provided many examples on this blog of the paedophiles’ friends being at each others throats in spite of having the capacity to unite in the face of the enemy ie. the Empowered Service Users. One such paedophiles’ friend who hit the roof when he received what he considered to be the highly intrusive and inappropriate questionnaire from Michael Meacher was the Chairman of Islington Health Authority, Eric Moonman, who had previously been a Labour MP.

Eric Moonman (29 April 1929 – 22 December 2017) was the Labour MP for Billericay, 1966–70 and Basildon, 1974–79. Moonman was educated at Liverpool and Manchester Universities and became a senior research fellow in the Department of Management Science at Manchester University. He was a Councillor on Stepney Borough Council, serving as Council Leader until 1965 and then on the London Borough of Tower Hamlets from 1964.

There was organised abuse of children in Stepney as long ago as the 1960s and when Dafydd went into business big time, kids from Tower Hamlets were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. This was concealed by numerous politicians and others in public life, including Ian Mikardo, Peter Shore, Sir Robin Wales and Lord Elwyn-Jones See previous posts.

Moonman contested Chigwell in 1964 without success and was elected for Billericay in the 1966 General Election, losing the seat four years later. He then was elected for Basildon at the February 1974 election, but again lost his seat in 1979. After his second electoral defeat, Moonman pursued an academic career and became Professor of Management at City University, London and a visiting Professor at the University of Liverpool.

Dafydd trained at Liverpool Medical School and Liverpool University was heaving with members of Dafydd’s network who were fully on board with him, particularly those people working in medicine, law and the social sciences.

Moonman was Chair of Poale Zion (Great Britain) and President of the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.

Eric Moonman was born in Liverpool in 1929. He attended Rathbone School in Liverpool, leaving at the age of 13 to begin a seven-year apprenticeship at WJ Pugh Printers and then the ‘Liverpool Echo’. After WW II, Moonman undertook his national service in the King’s Liverpool Regiment, 1951-53, during which he took courses in military studies as well as evening classes in subjects such as public speaking. In 1954 he gained a place at the University of Liverpool to study for a Diploma in Social Science which he was awarded in 1955.

Dafydd and Lucille were students at Liverpool University in the mid-1950s. Lucille did her social work training at Liverpool University.

At Liverpool, Moonman edited the University magazine and became Chairman of the Labour Society.

In June 1967, the Foreign Secretary George Brown made a speech to the UN General Assembly on the Israel-Arab Conflict. Moonman was one of a number of Labour MPs to accuse Brown of “taking sides” against Israel. At a Jewish ex-servicemen’s rally in Southend, Moonman called Brown’s speech a “serious embarrassment” and said he had “aggressively departed” from the Gov’t’s neutral policy, giving “harsh and arrogant advice” to the Israelis.

In 1972 Moonman was at the World Jewish Congress in Switzerland. He approached Stephen Roth, then Director of the European Jewish Congress and told him that changes had to be made in the way that Israel represented itself abroad. Roth accordingly gave him permission to start up a commission on Israel. In 1974, Moonman convened the first gathering of Jewish professionals to work out propaganda strategies.

Stephen John Roth (April 21, 1908 – July 11, 1974) was a US District Judge of the US District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. Roth studied at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Michigan Law School. He entered private practice in Michigan, 1935 -37 and would subsequently return to private practice in Michigan, 1939-41, in 1943, from 1945-48 and from 1950-52. He was an Assistant Prosecutor in Genesee County, Michigan, 1937-38. Roth was the Prosecutor for Genesee County, 1941-42. He served as a second lieutenant in the US Army, 1942-45. He was the Attorney General of Michigan, 1949-50. He was a Judge of the Michigan Circuit Court, 1952-62.

Roth was nominated by President John F. Kennedy on April 19, 1962, to a seat on the US District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. He was confirmed by the US Senate on May 1, 1962, and received his commission on May 7, 1962. His service terminated on July 11, 1974, due to his death.

Milliken v. Bradley (1974) was a significant case heard by Roth. A suit by the NAACP charging that the Detroit, Michigan public school system was racially segregated as a result of official policies was filed against Michigan Governor William Milliken. After reviewing the case and concluding the system was segregated, Roth ordered the adoption of a desegregation plan that encompassed eighty-five outlying school districts. The US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit affirmed the metropolitan plan.

I note that Stephen Roth was born in Hungary in the early years of the 20th century. I am fairly sure that he is a relative of the psychiatrist Sir Martin Roth – a brother perhaps? – who was born in Hungary in 1917. Martin Roth ended his career as Professor – and then Emeritus Prof – of Psychiatry at Cambridge University, but Roth had previously enjoyed many other roles in which he proffered lifelong protection to Dafydd and the gang. Martin Roth, in the early 1970s, single-handedly raised the funds for the newly created Royal College of Psychiatrists to acquire a grandiose building in Belgravia as their home, when the Royal College had barely two pennies to rub together. It is known that Roth raised the dosh by somehow persuading Marks and Spencer to give them a huge loan on very favourable terms. The Royal College quietly moved out of the palatial Belgravia residence some years later, having encountered serious financial problems. I have not found out why M&S were so generous to a man and his colleagues who were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring, but the fact that Roth et al were concealing wrongdoing in high places was undoubtedly the explanation for the generosity of M&S. A possible candidate being the key to this is Woy Jenkins, who not only concealed Dafydd et al and the Westminster Paedophile Ring but was Chancellor of the Exchequer, Home Secretary (twice), President of the European Commission and Chancellor of Oxford University. He was Home Secretary when Bryn Estyn was run by the Home Office. Woy was from south Wales and known to be a bisexual swinger who admitted this in interviews but refused to name those with whom  he was having affairs. Had Woy been an honest man, I would argue that his privacy should have been respected, but Woy was concealing serious organised crime and a pan-European trafficking ring which targeted children and murdered witnesses. One doesn’t really want that in a Home Secretary. See post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’ for more info about Woy.

Miranda always maintained that Woy was his mentor.

See post ‘The Newcastle-upon-Tyne Connection’ for further details re Martin Roth.

Here’s the man to whom they were all so indebted:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

 

The group of Jewish professionals convened by Moonman subsequently met twice every year, once in Europe in the summer and once in Jerusalem in the autumn. Moonman was “the founder and guiding light” of the organisation which became the West European Public Relations Group for Information on Behalf of Israel. The group was initially funded by the World Jewish Congress which later withdrew its funding. From 1980 it was funded instead by the World Zionist Organisation and from 1985 also by the Israel Foreign Ministry. The Register of Members’ Interests 1975/6 records that Moonman visited a conference in Brussels in February 1976, which was probably the winter meeting of the West European Public Relations Group for Information on Behalf of Israel. The register records that Moonman was there as a representative of the Parliamentary Committee for the release of Soviet Jewry.

By 1975, Moonman was Chairman of the Zionist Federation of Great Britain. In August that year Moonman met with the Home Secretary Woy Jenkins to protest against the planned visit to London by two members of the Palestinian National Council (the political wing of the PLO). Moonman criticised the visit as “an attempt to become respectable”. He added “we demean ourselves as human beings if at a convenient point of time we overlook the track record of these people”. 

Anyone for looking at the track record of Dafydd and Woy? Or indeed of Islington Health Authority, the members of whom knew what was happening to the kids in children’s homes in Islington.

Jeremy Corbyn was a member of a District Health Authority before he became an MP, but I don’t know which one.

 

In June 1977, ‘The Sunday Times’ published a front-page story and a four-page ‘Insight’ investigation reporting the alleged torture of Palestinian prisoners in the occupied territories. The Israeli Embassy in London called the assertions a “vicious slander as it is insulting to the only democracy and free judiciary in the area”. Moonman made three complaints about the reports to the Press Council, complaining that unproved accusations were reported as facts, that the paper misled readers with unsubstantiated quotes and headlines and that Israel was denied the opportunity to comment before publication. His complaints were rejected.

In 1981, a broadcast by the Israeli Radio Peace and Progress (summarised by the BBC) referred to Moonman as one of several “leaders of the Zionist organizations in Britain”; although it is not clear if this referred to the West European Public Relations Group for Information on Behalf of Israel or another organisation. The broadcast reported that Moonman had “explained his” opposition to  Menachem Begin in an article in The Jewish Chronicle, wherein Moonman argued that: “We must support Israel, but we must give consideration to the image of the Israel which we support. It is clear that Israel’s Western allies are less and less interested in supporting Begin’s Israel”.

In 1985, Moonman forced the Editor of the ‘Jewish Quarterly’ to resign. According to his successor Colin Shindler: “The offence had been caused by a ‘Jewish Quarterly editorial which questioned the actual dangers of anti-Semitism today as popularly viewed by Jewish leadership”.

A 1986 report in ‘The Guardian’ refers to Moonman as “chairman of the research committee of the Board of Deputies of British Jews” and Moonman’s profile in Debrett’s People of Today states that that year he was appointed senior Vice-President. At this stage, Moonman was also a board member of the British-Israel Public Affairs Committee (BIPAC) where he worked on a publication called EEC Monitor. In 1987, however Moonman was forced to resign from BIPAC after a financial scandal which he considered the result of a campaign against him. Below is an extract from The Guardian explaining the circumstances of Moonman’s departure from BIPAC:

An unusual advert has just appeared in ‘The Jewish Chronicle’, asking anyone who knows about a campaign of malice against the former Labour MP Eric Moonman to send the information to a box number. It has been placed, of course, by Moonman himself, who is senior vice-president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, and chairman of the Islington Area Health Authority in London. Until recently he was also a board member of the British-Israel Public Affairs Committee (BIPAC), but he resigned at the last meeting following what might be called the Alexander Keddie Affair. Keddie doesn’t actually exist, although he was once described as a recluse in Essex who didn’t like taking phone calls; the name was simply used over a period of about four years to steer payments to a variety of people, including Moonman, who worked on a BIPAC publication called EEC Monitor. An accountant’s report into the affair was prompted by Monty Summary, a prominent Jewish businessman and fundraiser, and it concluded that Moonman had left people confused about the Keddie arrangement. Moonman denies this, and is now intent on unmasking his putative tormentors. ‘I do think there is a campaign against me,’ he said this week. ‘There have been anonymous letters and phone calls as well.’”

By 2001, Moonman had joined the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland. In mid January 2002, the ‘New Statesman’ reported that he headed the Zionist Federation’s Media Response Unit, organising email and letter writing campaigns against journalists perceived to be antisemitic or critical of Israel. A week after the publishing of that article, Moonman had reportedly become President of the organisation.

Moonman’s emergence as a terrorism expert seems to have stemmed from his involvement in an organisation called the Centre for Contemporary Studies, a think-tank which published material on football hooliganism and race relations, as well as terrorism. The Centre appears to have been founded by Moonman who ‘seems to have been affected by the Brixton riots and anxious about the possibility of societal breakdown’. The Public Inquiry into the 1981 Brixton riots was Chaired by Lord Scarman, who was a personal friend of John Tilley, the Labour MP for Lambeth Central, 1978-83. Tilley was one of the key organisers of the trafficking gangs in Wandsworth and Lambeth which were linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales (see post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’). Kids from these areas of south London were being sent to children’s homes in north Wales and were then trafficked back down to London to work in the sex industry. Brixton is located in the area covered by Lambeth Borough Council. Scarman knew about Dafydd’s gang and the associated gang working in Lambeth and concealed their crimes. See post ‘Only One Died’.

In May 1981, the Centre for Contemporary Studies published a report called “The Nazis are in the Playground”. According to the BBC’s Nationwide programme, it “claims extreme right-wing groups are recruiting school children and authorities are unable to control the situation”. The BBC interviewed Moonman on this on Nationwide. BBC archive records state that he “discusses young racism increasing 50% in 2 yrs; subtle strategies used; importance of process for future of the National Front; accuses the NUT of indifference and gives Centre’s proposals”. Later in 1981, a further report on the role of neo-fascist groups in music led to an interview with Joan Bakewell on ‘Newsnight’.

Joan Bakewell had a long-running affair with Harold Pinter. Harold knew about Dafydd et al from several sources, including from his wife Lady Antonia Fraser, who was the daughter of Lord Longford. Lord Longford did a truly splendid job of allowing himself to be seen as a national joke during a lifetime of visiting offenders in a whole variety of institutions who were the victims of, or witnesses to, the Westminster Paedophile Ring and gathering info from them. Lord Longford knew exactly who had the evidence on whom and in which institution they were banged up. See post ‘Comedies Of Menace’. Harriet Harman is a member of Lord Longford’s extended family…

 

According to the BBC’s archives Eric Moonman welcomed a “declaration” by the pop group ‘Madness’ that they had nothing to do with the NF and the British Movement, because the extreme right saw pop concerts as a potential market for their magazines.

In 1985, ‘Madness’ was part of a collective of musicians who formed Red Wedge, a rather lame attempt to raise support for the Windbag among the Yoof of Britain. It failed dismally. The only person involved with Red Wedge who was politically literate was Billy Bragg, but he came across in the media as being rather Dave Spart and he alienated a lot of the people to whom Red Wedge were trying to Reach Out. Billy Bragg stood up on stage strumming and singing his song ‘Between the Wars’, which just caused many an alternative comedian to include a bit in their gig in which they adopted a Cockney accent and yelled ‘I was a miner’.

The leader of Red Wedge was Tom Robinson, who was quite a bit older than the Yoof and was most well-known for his gay rights activism. I only found out a few days ago that for six years when he was an adolescent, Tom Robinson lived in the therapeutic community of Finchden Manor. Finchden was a therapeutic community which was established by George Lyward. It housed young people who had not coped at all well at school. The teens at Finchden were not brutalised like the kids in Bryn Estyn were because a lot of the Finchden residents were from privileged families; there were ex-public school boys there and Tom Robinson himself was from a middle-class family in Cambridge. Tom Robinson maintains that George Lyward saved his life after a terrible time as a boy when Robinson realised that he was gay. I am in no position to tell Tom Robinson that this isn’t true, Tom was there and I wasn’t, but Lyward was networked into all those other people like Dafydd and Dafydd’s mate Dr Bob Hobson (see post ‘The Mentor’) who also claimed to be running ‘therapeutic communities’ and who were sexually abusing/exploiting young people.

Can the Windbag tell us if his pal Tony Francis had anything to do with someone in the Labour Party finding a rock star who was grateful to one of Dafydd’s network to launch Red Wedge, at a time when a group of leftie young people working in academia and the media had such damning evidence about Dafydd’s and Tony Francis’s gang?

 

When the General Election was called in 1987, Red Wedge also organised a comedy tour featuring Lenny Henry, Ben Elton and Phil Jupitus  among others. Lenny Henry was married to Dawn French who went to Holyhead School – as did the Windbag’s wife – and was happy to have her name used as PR for that very troubled institution which ignored the abuse of children. Ben Elton’s dad Lewis Elton was a Prof at Surrey University and knew Prof Vincent Marks, the brother of Dr John Marks who as President of the BMA concealed the serious criminality in north Wales and on the turf of linked gangs. Lewis and Ben also had numerous other links with those who colluded with Dafydd (see post ‘The Rakes’ Progress’) and Lewis Elton was also a big mate of Professor Daphne Jackson, someone else who ignored the wrongdoing of people associated with Dafydd (see post ‘Jennifer’s Diary’).  Phil Jupitus more recently performed at a fund-raising gig ‘The Giddy Goat’ organised by and for the benefit of St David’s Hospice in Llandudno, an establishment founded and run by Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts.

The comedians of Red Wedge also published an election pamphlet, Move On Up, with a foreword by the Windbag. After the 1987 election produced a third consecutive Conservative victory, many of the musical collective drifted away. Yes Indeedy, because Mrs Thatch won yet again, in spite of Ben’s best efforts at assisting the associates of a paedophile gang.

In his writings, Eric Moonman focused in particular on the influence of media and television. He published a report in October 1981 on the riots that summer called “Copycat Hooligans”, which argued that: “Youths imitated television film of violence in Northern Ireland when they rioted in more than 20 British cities last summer… Eric Moonman, the Centre’s director and author of the report entitled Copy Cat Hooligans, said the rioters knew what to do because they had seen it on television.

There was much research carried out at the time – including by some of the academics who later did everything possible to shaft Brown – with regard to Copy Cat Violence. Most of the more robust research suggested that there was no such problem, but the researchers who claimed that there was enjoyed much higher media coverage. One such man was the Rev Brian Brown who just spouted nonsense. The Rev Brian Brown was the reason why Brown published some of his early work under his middle name of John, because being confused with the Rev caused great difficulties. Actually, I need to ask Brown a few things – it has just occurred to me that the Rev Brian Brown appeared on the scene publishing in exactly the same area as Brown when the security services were in hot pursuit of us…

Brown would have made a better Rev than so many who were ordained by the Anglican Church if only he were not an atheist, because he did manage to keep his hands off of underaged kids and other people’s bank accounts… A few more people should try it.

 

In 1987, Moonman published a book called The Violent Society which included contributions from prominent terrorologists Paul Wilkinson and Richard Clutterbuck. Paul Wilkinson was identified in the contributors notes as a member of the Advisory Board of the Centre for Contemporary Studies. Insight, the Alumni magazine for Liverpool University, wrote that The Violent Society ‘was well received and, surprisingly for Eric, marked another chapter in his life’. The article states that after the publication of The Violent Society Moonman ‘began to take on consultancy work for ITN as an expert in counter-terrorism’.

Paul Wilkinson (9 May 1937 – 11 August 2011) was Emeritus Professor of International Relations and Director of the University of St Andrews Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence (CSTPV). Dubbed “Britain’s leading academic specialist in the study of terrorism”, Wilkinson was a frequent commentator in the British media and an advisor to the UK Gov’t.

Born in Harrow in 1937, Wilkinson was educated at John Lyon School in Harrow. Wilkinson studied for a BA in Modern History and Politics at University College Swansea, followed by an MA.

Swansea University was pretty much run by Rhodri Morgan’s family; Rhodri’s brother Prys was an historian who spent his career at Swansea University. Swansea was the home town of Lord Brian Flowers, a nuclear physicist who was a big wig at Imperial College and then in the wider University of London. Flowers concealed and colluded with the crimes of Dafydd et al in Wales as well as with Dafydd’s Big Mates in the London Medical Schools, who were facilitating abuse and perpetrating research fraud like there was no tomorrow. Just to ensure that he had all angles covered, Brian Flowers also served as VC of Manchester University. See previous posts.

After serving six years as an education officer in the RAF, Wilkinson began his academic career at the University of Wales, Cardiff as an Assistant Lecturer in Politics in 1966. He became Senior Lecturer and then Reader in Politics at Cardiff before moving to the University of Aberdeen, where he was appointed as the first Chair in International Relations in 1979.

Cardiff University, particularly the Welsh National School of Medicine, was Command and Control HQ in Wales in relation to concealing Dafydd et al and of course the child molesting of George Thomas. Aberdeen University supplied the dreadful Professor J.B. Owen to the Agriculture Dept at UCNW after Mary Wynch began her litigation and reinforcements were required (see post ‘Not Seen Since The 80s – Carwyn’). Aberdeen had a few other interesting people as well, such as Sir Dugald Baird, a Prof of Obs and Gynae who pioneered aborting babies for ‘socio-economic reasons’. Not only did Dugald manage to abort babies if he judged that the women gestating the foetuses were too short of money for his liking – Dugald had a big family himself, he didn’t have a problem with wealthy people having a lot of children, it was just the plebs who had to be ordered to have abortions – but Dugald did this on a very big scale and before the 1967 Abortion Act. All Top Doctors in British Obs and Gynae knew what Dugald was up to, but not only was he left to get on and do it in peace, but Top Doctors at Tommy’s who were performing illegal abortions looked to Dugald as their role model and constructed him as a Wimmin’s Champ (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’). Dr Death was working at Tommy’s while his colleagues were modelling themselves on Dugald.

Dugald Baird also set up the Aberdeen MRC Sociology Unit led by Raymond Illsley, which was linked to his extermination of low-income foetuses Dept. Raymond Illsley’s Unit was commissioned by the Home Office Research Unit which, under various Home Secretaries, including Woy, conducted some questionable research while studiously ensuring that no-one noticed the en masse physical and sexual abuse of people living in units and institutions which the Home Office was running. See post ‘Rab, High Table and the Founding Fathers’. Of course Dugald Baird had links with Dafydd’s network, how could Dugald not have heard of his fellow travellers in north Wales???

Testament Of Fuckwittery:

British Politics | First Draft

 

Aberdeen has hosted more fuckwittery since Dugald’s death in 1986, in the form of Sir Ian Diamond, Principal and VC of Aberdeen University, 2010-18. Sir Ian David Diamond is a Policy Network Chair of  Universities UK. His previous appointments include Chief Executive of the ESRC – it was Sir Ian who was CEO when Professor Fergus Lowe and a few others with knowledge of Dafydd’s wrongdoing were given a great deal of money to set up an ESCR Centre into Bilingualism at Bangor University; Chair of the Research Councils UK Executive Group and Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Southampton, another institution which housed some of Dafydd’s umbrellas, eg. Sir Donald Acheson (see post ‘Professor Prestigious And His Associates’); Chair of Lloyds Banking Group Foundation for England and Wales; Visiting Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford; Chair of British Universities and Colleges Sport, Chair (Ex Officio) of the Mitchell Hospital Trust; Deputy Chair of UCAS and Interim Deputy Chair of the Department for International Development Research Advisory Group, 2017.

Sir Ian is also Trustee of the Iona Cathedral Trust and the Population Investigation Committee.

Sir Ian received his K in the 2013 New Year Honours for services to social science and higher education. Tony Francis was safely dead then and the cover-up of the cover-up that was the Waterhouse Inquiry which was the Macur Review was safely in hand.

Sir Ian is also a qualified football referee and was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant of Aberdeen in 2013.

In 2016 Sir Ian led a review of University finance in Wales which was commissioned by the Welsh Assembly Government, which recommended that grants towards tuition fees should be replaced with support for living costs instead. Sir Ian’s advice was followed by the Welsh Gov’t, who’s previous system of student funding had been designed by Professor Merfyn Jones.

Miranda and Sir Ian: I do hope that you’ve noticed the mess since Sir Ian announced that Merfyn’s model of student finance had to be ditched, because students in Wales certainly have.

The Diamond Geezer was born in Kingkerswell, Devon. He obtained his Bachelors degree from the LSE in 1975 and his Masters degree from the LSE in 1976. In 1981 the Diamond Geezer received his PhD from the institution dominated by the most elite of Top Docs, St Andrews University. Why are we not surprised? See previous posts for further gen re the Diamond Geezer.

 

In 1989 Paul Wilkinson was appointed to the first Chair in International Relations at the University of St Andrews and served as the Director of the Research Institute for the Study of Conflict and Terrorism, 1989-94. In 1994 Wilkinson co-founded Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence (CSTPV) with its first Director, Bruce Hoffman. 

Bruce Hoffman is a tenured Professor at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, where between 2010 and 2017 he was the Director of the Center for Security Studies and Director of the Security Studies programme. Hoffman is the second longest-serving Director in the Center. He is also visiting Professor of Terrorism Studies at St Andrews University, Scotland.

Hoffman received a BA in Government and History from Connecticut College in 1976. He studied international relations at Oxford University, where he earned a B.Phil. in 1978 and a D.Phil. in 1986. Hoffman is a political analyst who specialises in the study of terrorism, counter-terrorism, insurgency and counter-insurgency. 

In 1981, Hoffman joined the RAND Corporation in Santa Monica, California. He left RAND in 1994 to relocate to St Andrew’s, where he co-founded (with Wilkinson) and was the first Director of the CSTPV at St Andrews; Hoffman was also Chairman of the Department of International Relations, 1994–1998. Hoffman left St Andrews at the end of 1998 to return RAND as Director of RAND’s Washington Office, 1998–2006, Vice President for external affairs at RAND, 2001–2004, and Acting Director of the Center for Middle East Public Policy , 2004. He also held the RAND Corporate Chair in Counter-terrorism and Counter-insurgency, 2006–2006. Hoffman served as a Commissioner on the 9/11 Review Commission, which examined the FBI’s ability to counter terrorism, radicalization and cyber crime. The Commission’s report was released on March 25, 2015. He was scholar-in-residence for Counter-terrorism at the Central Intelligence Agency, 2004-06; an Adviser on counter-terrorism to the Office of National Security Affairs, Coalition Provisional Authority, Baghdad, Iraq in 2004 and from 2004 to 2005, an Adviser on counter-insurgency to the Strategy, Plans, and Analysis Office at Multi-National Forces-Iraq Headquarters, Baghdad. Hoffman was also an adviser to the Iraq Study Group (2006).

Hoffman is currently Shelby Cullom and Kathryn W. Davis Senior Visiting Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and was a Visiting Fellow at All Souls College, Oxford University in 2009. Hoffman has been a public policy fellow and a distinguished scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C. and is currently a Global Wilson Fellow. He was also a visiting Professor at Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Singapore, where he was the S. Rajaratnam Professor of Strategic Studies for 2009 and the William F. Podlich Distinguished Fellow and visiting Professor of Gov’t at Claremont McKenna College in 2016. Hoffman has been teaching at the International Institute for Counter-terrorism at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel, since 2006.

Hoffman’s mate Paul Wilkinson was a Visiting Fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge, 1997-98. He is co-founder and was co-editor of the academic journal Terrorism and Political Violence, 1989–2006 and was Director of a research project funded by the ESRC on the UK’s preparedness for terrorist attacks. Wilkinson also served as Advisor to Lord Lloyd of Berwick’s “Inquiry into Legislation Against Terrorism” and authored its second volume, “Research Report for the Inquiry”, published in October 1996.

In 2004 Dafydd gave evidence to the Independent Inquiry on Gulf War Illnesses conducted by Lord Lloyd of Berwick. Dafydd’s nonsense which was submitted as evidence can be read in my post ‘Feet In Chains’.

Lord Lloyd of Berwick aka Anthony Lloyd is a retired judge. He was educated at Eton, served in the army and then read law at Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1955 Lord Lloyd was admitted to the Inner Temple as a barrister. Lloyd was Attorney General to Prince Charles, 1969-77. Oh well Charles was mates with Jimmy Savile… Lord Lloyd was a High Court judge, a Law Lord and a Privy Councillor and in 1996 he reviewed anti- terrorist legislation using Paul Wilkinson as an advisor. Then in 2004 Lord Lloyd relied upon the word of Dafydd…

Lord Lloyd is still alive. Can he explain what he was doing exactly?

 

In August 2007, Wilkinson was appointed Emeritus Professor of International Relations and retired from serving as the Chairman of CSTPV’s Advisory Board, but remained active in academia and policy circles.

Throughout Wilkinson’s career, which spanned the five decades that saw the rise of the IRA bombings to the September 11 2001 attacks, Wilkinson was a strong opponent of terrorism but adamant that democratic responses to it always be guided by the rule of law. For example, he publicly opposed attempts to increase the period permitted to detain terrorism suspects without trial in the UK and condemned the George Dubya Bush administration’s approach to counter-terrorism, such as Guantanamo, which he criticized as flouting “international law and criminal justice”.

Indeed, Wilkinson said that liberal democracy was what sparked his interest in his subject, stating that he had become “interested initially in the mid-1960s in why terrorism had been effective in some conflicts and not others. Then, with the burgeoning of modern international terrorism in the 1970s, I became interested in the politics of democratic and international response”. Wilkinson appreciated it as a multi-disciplinary and “ever-changing” research topic that was especially rewarding because he was a part of “a small band of pioneers in this almost totally neglected field” in his early career.

As Dafydd has been so often. Dafydd with a history of hobnobbing with terrorists.

 

Richard Clutterbuck (22 November 1917 – 6 January 1998) was a pioneer in the study of political violence. In his lifetime he was both a professional soldier and academic.

Clutterbuck was commissioned into the Royal Engineers in 1937 after graduating in mechanical sciences from Cambridge. After Dunkirk, he went through both the Western Desert and Italian campaigns. The Army sent Clutterbuck to different hotspots, including Palestine (1947) during the Irgun Zvei Leumi’s terrorist campaign. In 1956, up against Chinese communists, Lt. Col Clutterbuck shed his rank badges to go on patrol as an ordinary soldier. As Chief Engineer Far East, 1966–68, Brigadier Clutterbuck put into practice in northeast Thailand the counter-terrorist philosophy he was gradually evolving. His next job after Thailand was the top one, as Engineer-in-Chief, 1968–70 at the Ministry of Defence. While in the Far East, however, Clutterbuck had started to read for a PhD in politics. In 1968, Clutterbuck enrolled at London University.

Clutterbuck looks like the sort of mad old bugger who worked for the security services who was ready to organise a military coup if Tony Benn became PM…

 

Clutterbuck’s last Army post was back in the specialisation that he had created for himself, as Chief Army Instructor of the Royal College of Defence Studies, devoted to peacekeeping or “low-intensity Operations” as they were now termed. On retirement in 1972 he became Dr Clutterbuck, and marched straight into the post of lecturer in political conflict at Exeter University.

One thing that Clutterbuck will have known much about is the elite paedophile ring which was based at Kincora Boys’ Home which was alleged to include Sir Anthony Blunt and Lord Louis Mountbatten and the links between that ring and Dafydd’s gang in north Wales/Cheshire.

In 1978, Richard Clutterbuck published a volume entitled ‘Britain in Agony’. It certainly was by 1978, Parliament contained a proportion of active paedophiles who became so worried that they were all about to be exposed what with Jeremy Thorpe being charged, that the whole establishment went collectively mad. More agony was to follow as a great many innocent people in north Wales lost their lives.

 

Despite the overblown claims of Eric Moonman being the go-to man when the media wanted expertise on terrorism for decades, Eric Moonman’s media presence as a terrorism expert does not seem to have taken off until after the millennium. The television archive contains only one item in the 1990s listing Moonman as a terrorism expert and the note does not contain an exact date. With the exception of that item, Moonman’s first appearance seems to have been on a Channel Five Lunchtime Bulletin on 18 July 2002, after which he appeared dozens of times on UK television.

In 1998, Moonman was appointed as a member of the Advisory Board of the Centre for Counter Terrorism Studies at the Potomic Institute for Policy Studies. He appeared at an ‘Executive Luncheon’ hosted by the group on 26 November 2001. The panel was chaired by Yonah Alexander, the Director of the International Center for Terrorism Studies and a fellow Zionist and seminal terrorism expert; and Michael Swetnam, CEO and chairman of the Potomac Institute. Moonman said he thought the media had been, “highly responsible and supportive of U.S. and international efforts to root out terrorism”. Of the critics of the War on Terror, Moonman said: “Many are Muslim, though most Muslims are friendly, good citizens who favour peace. Still, Taliban supporters are currently protesting and causing unrest in both England and the whole of Europe. Many of these dissidents are merely taking advantage of the situation, rather than genuinely pursuing the ideals of peace. Legitimate peace movement leaders, in fact, have actually spoken out against these protesters.” Moonman warned that “Usama bin Laden’s slick operation shows the extent to which public opinion can be bought with marketing and public relations expenditures,” and argued that, “we must fight terrorists on their own terms. We can’t afford to abide by the Queensbury rules of war in the face of such a dangerous and unscrupulous threat.” 

It was after his parliamentary career ended that Moonman became involved in health policy and was Chairman of Islington Health Authority, 1980–90. He created controversy within the Labour Party because of his support for privatisation within the NHS. Moonman was able to win a vote in favour of privatisation by reintroducing the matter on a much-criticised pretext at a meeting at which his supporters were in the majority. In 1987, at the Annual conference of the SDP with whom Moonman was by then involved, Moonman argued for a greater role for the private sector in the NHS. According to BBC Archives: “Eric MOONMAN, Islington, must look at alternative funding for the NHS & consider working with private sector”.

Eric Moonman’s obituary appeared in ‘The Times’ after he died in Dec 2017:

His interests inside and outside parliament were varied, ranging from mental health, computer technology and the decline of the newspaper industry, to management reform, children in care and the plight of Soviet Jews. In the 1970s he wrote columns on these and many other subjects for ‘The Times’.

Eric Moonman being interested in mental health and children in care is every bit as worrying as Molly Meacher Helping The Unfortunate.

The EEC, precursor of the European Union, was another area of interest. “If those who see the Treaty of Rome as a papal plot were to succeed in taking us out of the EEC, they should at least provide us with a forwarding address,” he wrote at the time of the 1975 in-out referendum, adding that a directly elected European parliament would make it more democratic and accountable. MEPs were first elected in 1979.

Jeremy Thorpe also campaigned for a directly elected European Parliament (see post ‘On The Occasion Of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’).

Constituency matters were perhaps not his forte, and at times he despaired of the unrealistic expectations of those he represented. He once used his Times column to produce a “consumer guide to members of parliament”, but he later wrote: “I have now ceased to be amazed at how little even apparently well educated people understand about the power structure in our society.”

Eric Moonman understood that power structure very well and it was just as well for him that most other people didn’t, or no-one would have let him remain as the Chairman of a Health Authority on the territory of a huge paedophile ring with links to mainland Europe, or indeed hold any of the many other positions that Eric enjoyed.

….He followed Everton FC and enjoyed watching films, but his parents were not thrilled by his cinema-going and enrolled him in the choir at Princes Road Synagogue. When he learnt that another singer was being paid three times his rate of sixpence a month, Moonman tried to organise a strike, but found that he could not rely on solidarity from the other singers. Instead he quit. “It was my first industrial dispute,” he said proudly. The other singer was Frankie Vaughan.

In 1940 the family home was bombed and Moonman and his sisters had to be dug out of the cellar…The family moved into a small flat in Southport, where one of his sisters was living, and he continued his education at Christ Church School until the age of 13. He began a seven-year apprenticeship with WJ Pugh Printers and later the Liverpool Echo, joining Labour in his teens…

He left the Labour Party for a period in 1984, alleging ‘Stalinist’ tactics

In 1984, after the Meacher questionnaire, Moonman did indeed resign from Labour, alleging “Stalinist” tactics on the part of Meacher. However, Moonman returned to the fold after a few months and the questionnaire (allegedly) wasn’t implemented. At a later point Moonman joined the SDP.

In 1962 Moonman married Jane Dillon, who had been his research assistant at the BIM. They had three children: Daniel, a social worker; Natasha, a website moderator living in Austin, Texas; and Josh, an undertaker in Dublin. The marriage was dissolved in 1991 and ten years later he married Gillian Mayer, an optometrist he met while speaking at the Southport Jewish Representative Council in 2000…

Daniel Moonman is to be found on the website of the University of Sheffield, listed as a member of staff in the Dept of Sociological Studies. His job title is given as ‘Consultant Social Worker (Adults). Daniel’s first degree is from Oxford, his MA and social work qualification are from Leicester and his MSc is from Birmingham. All three of those universities have social work academics who colluded with organised abuse and in Leicester the abusers effectively ran the University. Rob Evans, the senior manager responsible for children in care in Gwynedd Social Services when the gang were busy, trained at Leicester. After Rob had exposed the kids in care to extreme danger, he was given responsibility for community mental health services. Then the corpses of mental health patients began to turn up everywhere. Rob was then given the community services on Anglesey to play with. Soon there were no community services on Anglesey. See previous posts eg. ‘I Know Nuzzing…’

…[Moonman’s] post-parliamentary career was as varied as anything he had done. He was professor of management at City University and a visiting professor at the University of Liverpool. He was also a member of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, chairman of Poale Zion (now the Jewish Labour Movement), president of the Zionist Federation, a broadcaster on Talkradio and claimed some expertise in counterterrorism.

 

Moonman’s Torygraph obituary told us that:

Among his many interests he Chaired the Zionist Federation, Islington Health Authority and Toynbee Hall’s finance committee, was Northern manager of the Daily Mirror, leader of Stepney Council and a governor of the British Film Institute and Chaired the London branch of Everton supporters’ club.

He read Social Sciences at Liverpool University and took an industrial relations course at Manchester University before joining the British Institute of Management in 1956 as its human relations adviser. Moonman represented the BIM on the Thompson committee on the employment of ex-prisoners and in 1961 published ‘The Manager and the Organisation’, an acclaimed handbook emphasising the need for communication.

In 1962 he became senior lecturer in industrial relations at South-West Essex Technical College, returning to Manchester University as senior Fellow in Management Relations after his defeat at Chigwell.

Moonman advised the Mirror on HR aspects of its activities in Manchester, making contacts which led him as an MP to campaign for checks on press mergers. Yet his political roots were in East London, serving from 1961 as a Stepney councillor and becoming council leader in 1964. When Stepney was absorbed into Tower Hamlets, Moonman won a seat on the new council.

With Wilson in Downing Street and George Brown (whom Moonman greatly admired) preparing his National Plan, he was selected for Billericay, then the first constituency to declare its result on election night, despite having more than 100,000 voters. In 1966 he ousted the Conservative Sir Edward Gardiner by 1,642 votes.

In the House, Moonman became a less enthusiastic cheerleader for the Labour government and Brown’s approach in particular. Having campaigned for a prices and incomes policy, he concluded that it had turned into a wage freeze.

He applied his managerial skills to his new milieu, urging time limits on speeches; he also chaired Labour’s Science and Technology Group and the all-party committee on mental health, in which he took a lifetime interest.

Of course he did…

During all-night sittings he wrote his MSc thesis

One presumes that either that MSc was not up to much or Moonman was completely inactive in the Commons. Moonman received his MSc in 1967.

 

At the start of 1967 he became PPS to Patrick Gordon-Walker, Minister Without Portfolio, moving with him to Education. He still took an independent line, opposing the Common Market and the Vietnam War…

When Gordon-Walker lost his job late in 1968, Moonman’s involvement with government ended. The next summer he was threatened by the chief whip, Bob Mellish, for opposing (as a member of the National Graphical Association) penal provisions in Barbara Castle’s abortive trade union reforms…

Bob Mellish was the London Labour Party’s Own True Cockney, the Voice Of The Common Man, who nonetheless managed to ensure that numerous kids from Southwark were sent to children’s homes in north Wales and continued to be sent there even after one of them was sexually assaulted at gunpoint. Mellish also helped Thatch and Heseltine out by accepting an appointment as Vice-Chairman of the London Docklands Development Corporation, when no other member of the Labour Party would. See post ‘The Battle For the Labour Party’s Soul’ for the background on the entrenched corruption of Bob Mellish and his mates in the Bermondsey Labour Party.

 

Out of the House [Moonman] chaired the Centre for Research and Education, tackling “computer fright” among British management. Chairing the Labour Newspaper Group, he campaigned to maintain diversity in Fleet Street, warning that just two national dailies might survive and urging the adoption of new technology subject to safeguards for NGA members.

In February 1974 Moonman took Basildon, again part of his old constituency, by 10,667 votes. His efforts to moderate Tony Benn’s plans for more nationalisation led to his being ousted as chairman of Labour’s Industry Committee.

Chairing the Labour Parliamentary Association, representing candidates, he urged pro- and anti- (Common) Marketeers to keep their cool in the 1975 referendum, and complained that ministerial chauffeurs, with overtime, were paid more than backbenchers. He also launched a fund to fight the government’s Scottish and Welsh devolution proposals.

Moonman did not take a high profile on the Middle East until the early 1970s, when he became chairman of Poale Zion, the Labour Zionist organisation, then in 1975 chairman (later president) of the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland. He tried to prevent Palestinian representatives receiving visas to enter Britain, and lobbied ministers to protect British business against the Arab boycott of Israel…

In 1983 Moonman came a poor second to Peter Tatchell for the by-election nomination at Bermondsey, a choice Labour came to rue as the seat was dramatically lost – taking 32 years to recover.

Peter Tatchell was the man who opposed Bob Mellish’s naked corruption in Bermondsey and found himself subjected to the most appalling hate campaign and physical violence on the part of Honest Bob and his mates as a result. See post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’.

 

Despite his exasperation at what he saw as the provocative stance of Israel’s Likud governments, Moonman was twice elected senior vice president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews. He pressed for action against desecrators of Jewish graves, and voiced scepticism over claims that Britain housed hundreds of unpunished Nazi war criminals, putting the likely maximum at 15. He also backed the creation of a volunteer force, registered as a charity, to protect Jews against racial attacks.

In 1990 Moonman went to work for the charitable foundation of Gerald Ronson, jailed for his part in the Guinness share-dealing affair. His subsequent appointment as temporary director of the National History Museum’s development trust, after the foundation had given it £500,000, aroused protests from museum staff.

He became chairman of Essex Radio in 1991, visiting Professor of Systems Science at City University in 1992, consultant on Africa to the International Red Cross and chairman of Liverpool’s continuing healthcare review.

All aspects of the NHS in Liverpool were dominated entirely by Dafydd and his mates. Eric Moonman must have been Of Them or he would never have been given that position.

He edited essays on The Violent Society (1987)…

It was a very violent society for targets of Dafydd’s gang.

 

Moonman and his pals who were experts on terrorism will all have known about the links between terrorists and organised crime and that some of the murders carried out in N Ireland were thought to have been a result of the targeting of child abusers rather than British Oppressors.

 

Michael Meacher’s questionnaire demonstrated the degree of detail of the information that the Labour Party had/has on the NHS and the various Health Authorities. Other political parties also kept tabs on the NHS, because at every election there is an enormous scrap over the NHS. All parties of all hues knew about the serious crime that pervaded some parts of the NHS as described on this blog. The I Know Nuzzing bit on the part of any politician with regard to matters like the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal or any of the other big abuse scandals is farcical. Politicians and the NHS know when something like that is happening on their doorstep. No politician will confront any Top Doctor, no matter how dangerous he/she is, because they know that they will have the BMA after their blood. Somebody will have known about Harold Shipman in the way that everyone knew about Dafydd. Health Authorities like those in north Wales had dreadful mortality rates and were effectively bankrupt as well, of course the politicians knew what was going on. The Windbag made friends with Tony Francis rather than his victims because the Windbag feared Tony Francis’s professional group far more than he feared the distraught relatives of the kids in care or the Empowered Service Users. Kids in care and Empowered Service Users are there to have a photo call with in an election campaign which is then published in the local paper with a patronising comment about how they are being Helped. The Top Doctors are there to meet with in private and take orders from.

Whereas Labour politicians would never admit that the Top Doctors were killing the patients because the NHS must be supported at all costs, the Tories were concerned only with ‘profligate’ Health Authorities and didn’t really care that they were the dysfunctional organisations managed by criminals who were killing the patients at the same time. In his autobiography, Ken Clarke freely admits that there were a great many Health Authorities which were in a dreadful state with Chairmen and members who were not fit for those positions. Ken banged on at them about their spending, the importance of reform and the principles of good business, he introduced another layer of management and the trafficking, embezzling, drug dealing and serious organised crime continued. See post ‘Running The Country And All That Jazz’.

 

Moonman contacted the Windbag’s office in Sept 1984, after receiving Meacher’s questionnaire, but the Windbag maintained that he knew nuzzing and then distanced himself from Meacher. In an affidavit sworn just before the libel trial, the Windbag again claimed to have no knowledge of the questionnaire. The Windbag’s affidavit was sworn under the auspices of Lewis Silkin solicitors. The Silkins were a high profile family of Labour lawyers and politicians. Sam Silkin was Attorney General for England and Wales and AG for N Ireland, 1974-79 and at one point Sam’s brother John Silkin aimed to be Leader of the Labour Party. The Silkins all knew about Dafydd et al. See previous posts. In Sept 1984, Moonman also wrote to Jim Mortimer, the Labour Party’s General Secretary.

No Labour MP gave evidence in support of Michael Meacher at the trial, he was very much on his own. Everyone scarpered.

 

Ivor Walker was a fellow member of Islington Health Authority. When Moonman resigned as Chairman of Islington Health Authority in Nov 1984 over the business of Meacher’s questionnaire, Ivor Walker too complained to the Windbag about the questionnaire. The Windbag did not reply to Walker. Ivor Walker died in Feb 2009 and the Camden New Journal published a tribute to Ivor’s time on earth:

IVOR Walker, exuberant Labour Camden councillor, solicitor friend of the oppressed, passionate planning supremo and arts supporter, died on Sunday after a two-year battle against cancer. He was 76.
He was the archetypal lad from London’s East End who battled against the disadvantages in life – his mother died when he was five and grandparents brought him up – to raise himself up the social ladder and make his mark.
And he made his mark with his enthusiasm and determination to succeed, his ability to create friends, even among politicians from other parties, helping to promote the issues he cared for.
Social justice was close to his heart after he won a grammar school scholarship.
He was evacuated from London during World War Two and had an ambition to train to be a farmer so that he could emigrate to Israel. But after training in Manchester, he decided that farming was not for him.
After National Service he began life as a clerk at Thompson’s, the trade union solicitors.
“Then he became a solicitor himself by doing it the hard way,” said his lifelong friend Edgar Rose.
He and Edgar shared a flat in Ridgemount Gardens, Bloomsbury, in the late 1950s, when they were both left-wing members of the Labour Party and CND stewards on anti-nuclear marches.
Serving on Camden Council for more than a decade during the 1970s, he was first chairman of the planning committee, where he gained the support of Camden’s planning officer Dr Bruno Schlaffenberg.
Together they persuaded developers to provide social housing in major developments, notably the office block on the old Gamages store site in Holborn.
Turning Flask Walk, Hampstead, into a pedestrian space was another notable
achievement despite shopkeepers fearing they would lose trade.
Ivor was always on duty. He zoomed around Camden on his motor scooter, playing a significant role in expanding the Camden Arts Festival as chairman of the festival committee, providing support for the Roundhouse project in Chalk Farm, backing for the Camden Arts Centre, in Arkwright Road, Hampstead, and chairing the Camden Arts Trust.
Modern artists were among his friends, and he supported them too by buying their works while, in the council chamber, he always spoke with ebullient ease, combing his wit with serious conviction.
He even took on Ken Livingstone when his policy of breaking the Thatcher regime almost sent councillors to prison.
“Ivor really was the conscience of his party, always making Labour face reality no matter how painful it was to them – and to himself,” said Sir Alan Greengross, Camden’s former Tory opposition leader.
“He never forgot what the real world was all about.
“The truth was so important to him. He was an amazing friend to many people.”
Indeed, after failing to rise to the top at Thompson’s, Ivor left the firm to become, remarkably, a solicitor partner of the late Julian Tobin, a noted Tory councillor in Camden.
He later worked on his own after leaving the marital home in Highgate to live in Frognal, Hampstead, and, subsequently, with his second wife, Penny, in a cottage near Buntingford, Hertfordshire.
He leaves a widow and three children.

Thompsons are a firm of solicitors who act for trade unions and have assisted many an abusive health and social care worker in the face of complaints from Empowered Service Users. A number of AMs in Wales who’s heads have remained firmly in the sand with regard to abuse and criminality in the NHS and social services, including the current Welsh Gov’t Health Minister Vaughan Gething, have been solicitors who worked for Thompsons.

Camden was the manor of so many of those who later became the big beasts of New Labour eg. Dobbo, Tessa Jowell, David Mills, John Mills, Dame Barbara Mills the corrupt DPP, they were all in Camden and cluttered up Camden Borough Council. All of them knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the links between the trafficking gang in Camden and the gang in north Wales. Camden was also the location of the offices and Chambers of some of the dodgy lawyers who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Please see previous posts for the details of the Camden crowd.

 

Anne Rouse was a member of Islington Health Authority, 1982-86, who gave evidence at the libel trial. Anne was a member of Islington North Constituency Labour Party, as opposed to Eric Moonman being a member of Islington South Constituency Labour Party. Rouse was a project worker at Islington MIND. From its very establishment, MIND colluded with organised abuse and at one point was giving platforms to paedophiles’ rights activists at its conferences. Dafydd was a leading light in MIND while MIND told people that they were standing up to Dafydd’s abuses. People who held senior roles in MIND usually did very well in their future careers in public life and that was simply because MIND was concealing serious crime in very high places. See previous posts.

 

Another player in the drama was Barbara Shepherd, Meacher’s researcher who was the person who constructed the questionnaires, sent them out and analysed them. Michael Meacher’s political adviser at the time of the controversial questionnaire was Alan Meale.

Sir Joseph Alan Meale was the Labour MP for Mansfield, 1987-2017. Meale attended St Joseph RC School in Bishop Auckland, studied at Ruskin College and Durham University. His CV also mentions Sheffield Hallam University. Meale’s website lists his previous occupations as author, editor, development officer, trade union official, researcher, political adviser and journalist.

Meale made his maiden speech  in the Commons on 3 July 1987 in the Tourism debate where he commented on the poverty, lack of provision, opportunity and services in the Mansfield community.

Two members of the Mansfield community who are on their uppers:

Michael Mansfield

Meale was a Whip, 1992-94, then he became PPS to Prezza in Prezza’s different portfolios until 1998. Meale served as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Dept of the Environment, Transport and the Regions under Prezza , Jan 1998-Jan 1999. The Prezza who was at Ruskin College at the same time as Peter Howarth and Matt Arnold, who were employed at Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead where boys were abused as part of a wider paedophile ring and who then relocated to Bryn Estyn, where boys were abused as part of a wider paedophile ring with direct links to er, the North East of England as well as to Hull, where Prezza held his seat for so long.

  • Failed Former Deputy Prime Minister Returns To Politics ...

 

‘This Labour Gov’t will increase ‘omelessness’. You were dead right Prezza, they did. I lost my own house in 2002, as a result of the criminal activities of Dafydd’s gang whom you and your buddies protected.

Meale became a Gov’t Whip in the Council of Europe Delegation in 2007 and was acting Leader of the UK Delegation in 2010. He has been the Chair of the British Section of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Cyprus Group since 2007.

In 1998, Michael Ancram accused Meale of “cronyism” following allegations in ‘The Sunday Times’ that he had lobbied on behalf of Anthony Kleanthous, the millionaire Greek-Cypriot chairman of Barnet football club. Kleanthous wanted to build a £14 million stadium on green belt land, 140 miles from Meale’s constituency. ‘The Sunday Times’ article said that Britain’s Greek-Cypriot lobbying groups had paid for Meale and his wife to go to Cyprus and donated thousands of pounds to Labour. Meale denied cronyism, whilst Kleanthous insisted he had not donated to the Labour party and said it was “a bit racist” to link his business interests to Greek-Cypriot political lobbying efforts based on his ethnicity.

Meale was Vice Chair of the APPG for Cyprus and was regarded by Greek Cypriot groups as one of their “oldest and closest friends in Parliament”. According to Meale, he first became interested in the political situation in Cyprus back in 1987 when Wedgie Benn advised him to “pick a political issue and stick with it”.

Where was I living in 1987, when the security services and Dafydd’s gang were trailing me across the the UK and doing as much harm as possible? In Chesterfield Gardens in Harringay, at the heart of London’s Greek Cypriot community. You should have popped over to my place for coffee Sir Alan, you all knew where I lived, my mail was being intercepted and MI5 sent people over to live with me disguised as young people who were looking for a house share! Diane from Cornwall, Theresa from Ireland, David from Cardiff. I did like them, they were very nice actually, but I really do wish that their bosses had put a stop to Dafydd…

Diana was a real laugh, our landlord’s elderly dad wanted to have an affair with her and turned up at our house with some truly terrible dresses that he had acquired from somewhere and said ‘would you like  a 45 year old boyfriend, I can be your sugar daddy’. Hilarious, particularly as the landlord’s dad was very obviously in his 60s, no way was he 45. Our landlord was Mr Iannou, a Greek accountant who’s wife worked in one of the London hospitals… Diane knew all about Dafydd, we discussed him at length when we compared notes on Elderly Men Trying Their Luck.

‘We didn’t know.’

In the run-up to the UK referendum on membership of the EU, Meale campaigned to remain in the EU.

Meale was mentioned in the Parliamentary expenses scandal, having claimed £13,000 over 4 years for gardening. The limit set retrospectively by Sir Thomas Legg was £1,000/year. The Legg Report showed that Meale repaid £11,859.

Meale was one of sixteen MPs to sign an Early Day Motion tabled by Conservative MP David Tredinnick regretting the BMA’s opposition to further NHS funding of homeopathy. I hate the BMA as much as the next person, but neither do I believe that ineffective remedies should be funded by the NHS just because the Royal Family believe that they work. Although the BMA should have asked themselves why so many people who didn’t understand that homeopathy cannot work or at least not in the way that it is claimed were running into the embrace of alternative practitioners. It had something to do with their terrible experiences at the hands of the Top Doctors…

Meale married Diana Gilhespy on 10 March 1983, his second wife; he has a son and daughter from his first marriage in 1970. Meale was knighted by Carlo officiating at the ceremony in January, 2012, after the 2011 Birthday Honours list was announced, chosen for his “public and political service”, Meale having assisted a gang of paedophiles and put his name to an EDM in support of a bit of quackery close to Carlo’s heart.

 

Michael Meacher’s solicitors were Seifert Sedley Williams, who were also Arthur Scargill’s solicitors. Seifert Sedley Williams are yet more members of the poverty stricken Mansfield community. See previous posts.

Sir Stephen Sedley

When Meacher lost the libel case, he appealed – although he later dropped his appeal – and changed solicitors to Bindman and Partners. Professor Sir Geoffrey Lionel Bindman is closely linked with the Mansfield community and specialises in human rights law. Well what else would a satellite of the Mansfield community be doing? Bindman has been Chair of the British Institute of Human Rights since 2005. He received a K in 2006 for services to human rights. Bindman is a Patron of Humanists UK (formerly the British Humanist Association), along with a number of other paedophiles’ friends mentioned previously on this blog.

Bindman was born and brought up in Newcastle-upon-Tyne to a family descended from Jewish immigrants. His father Gerald (1904–1974) was a Top Doctor – a GP. Bindman attended the  Royal Grammar School, Newcastle and then graduated from Oriel College, Oxford in 1956. He became a legal advisor to the Race Relations Board in 1966, a job he retained for 17 years. He also served as a legal advisor to Amnesty International and represented ‘Private Eye’.

In the late 1980s, Geoffrey Bindman visited South Africa as part of an International Commission of Jurists delegation sent to investigate apartheid and subsequently became editor of a book on the topic, South Africa and the Rule of LawGeoffrey has a second cousin who owns another law firm, Bindman Solicitors LLP trading as Bindman & Co, in Whickham, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. His brother is Professor David Bindman (born 1940), emeritus Durning-Lawrence Professor of the History of Art at UCL and research fellow at the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research at Harvard.

In 1974, Bindman established Bindmans LLP as a firm with the aim of “protecting the rights and freedoms of ordinary people.” Such as Michael Meacher. Other ordinary people who’s rights and freedoms that Geoffrey Bindman has protected include Jack Straw and Keith Vaz. Well they don’t come more ordinary than Keith Vaz, everyone knows that he’s really just a washing machine salesman, not a crooked MP who procures rent boys.

Keith Vaz was the Labour MP for the constituency in which Brown and I lived after I moved from Harringay in May 1987! Brown was already living there when Keith rocked up in Leicester and was selected as the candidate for Brown’s constituency. There was a paedophile gang operating in Leicester at the time with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and when Dafydd had me unlawfully arrested on a visit to Wales, I was referred to Dr James Earp, a Top Doctor from Leicester, for him to write a report for the Court case. Earp concealed the criminality of the gang in north Wales. But then he would wouldn’t he.

 James Earp was later involved in a scandal centring upon a convicted murderer who had ‘escaped’ from Earp’s secure unit. It was clear that the murderer had help from the inside with regard to that escape and as more information was revealed it seemed likely that the murderer had received a great deal of assistance from a number of Top Doctors and lawyers to ensure that he ended up in the care of Earp rather than in prison. See previous posts including ‘An Expert From England’ for more information on our adventures when we lived in Vaz’s constituency and on James Earp.

 

Bindman continued his international human rights work when he acted as a United Nations observer at the  first democratic election in South Africa and representing Amnesty International’s interests in the British litigation regarding Augusto Pinochet in the late 1990s. The Pinochet who was assisted considerably by the Top Doctors when an international warrant for his arrest was issued. See previous posts.

In 2001, Bindman was fined £12,000 by the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal for acting despite having a conflict of interest, as well as for breach of confidentiality. It was remarked at the time that he was the “most eminent” lawyer ever to be brought before such a tribunal.

In 2012, Andrew Hopper QC, who was a leading prosecutor before the Tribunal until 2002, reviewed Bindman’s case. He found the main charge was at worst “a ‘bare conflict’ having no adverse consequence” and said the Tribunal’s verdict on its seriousness was “incomprehensible”. He also suggested the decision to prosecute and the level of the fine were reactions to Bindman’s “robust” defence to the charges against him. Hopper sympathised with the view that Bindman was treated “disproportionately because of his stature in the profession”.

In September 2012, Bindman told BBC Radio 4 that he agreed with Desmond Tutu that Miranda should be prosecuted on the grounds that starting the Iraq War was a “crime of aggression” in breach of the UN Charter. 

Perhaps Geoffrey Bindman could say a few words about the activities of Miranda’s wife, a fellow Human Rights lawyer and a neighbour of the Mansfield community herself as well as her mate Michael Beloff QC, who was most helpful to Dafydd’s gang in 1996? See previous posts eg. ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’

Sir Alan Meale, a member of the Mansfield community:

Alan Meale

 

After Michael Meacher lost the libel case, Lord Arnold Goodman – a friend of Donald Trelford and a former Director of ‘The Observer’ – intervened on behalf of Meacher and asked Trelford of ‘The Observer’ if he would waive the costs which had been awarded against Meacher. Arnold Goodman was Harold Wilson’s solicitor and is widely believed to have been as corrupt as Wilson. Goodman worked with Nye Bevan’s widow Jennie Lee on the establishment of the OU (see previous posts ) and acted for Thorpe after Thorpe was charged with incitement to murder and conspiracy. See previous posts for information of Arnold Goodman.

Alan Watkins’s book devotes some time to Ken Clarke, who explained that as Minister of Health, he was responsible for appointing all the members of Regional Health Authorities and the Chairmen of District Health Authorities. It was the Regional Health Authorities who appointed the other members of the District Health Authorities. The appointments were officially appointments made by Norman Fowler, the Secretary of State, but in practice it was Clarke who made them. When explaining how he did not just pack Health Authorities with Tories, Clarke mentioned that he had reappointed the Chairman of Anglia Regional Health Authority, ‘a local man’, the Chairman of Norwich City Football Club, who had been a very active member of the Labour Party, indeed ‘one of the right-hand men’ of Lord David Ennals in the Norwich Labour Party.

David Ennals served as the Labour MP for Norwich North. He was also a Minister in the Home Office, in the DHSS under Barbara Castle and then Secretary of State for the DHSS under Jim Callaghan. In all of those positions Ennals concealed organised abuse and the associated crime, including that of Dafydd et al. Neither did Ennals just bump into Dafydd in his roles in Gov’t. Ennals worked for MIND in the early 1970s when Dafydd was a leading light in MIND and when MIND had close links to paedophiles’ rights activists. After he retired from politics, Ennals served as Chairman of MIND for years. He was in post when MIND told people that they knew of Dafydd’s offending and were supporting people who were complaining about him, but in reality were protecting Dafydd and continuing to work with him. For decades, David Ennals systematically ensured that he held roles which enabled him to protect people facilitating organised paedophile and trafficking rings. See previous posts for further gen on David Ennals, his brother Martin who was Secretary General of Amnesty and his son Sir Paul Ennals, who was involved with children’s charidees and sat on numerous Safeguarding Boards.

When Ken Clarke has explained why he reappointed a personal friend of a man with a track record like David Ennals as Chairman of a Regional Health Authority, Ken might like to explain why every member of the North Wales Health Authority was a friend of Dafydd’s and why Ken was happy to allow Noreen Edwards to remain as Chairman of Gwynedd Health Authority. Noreen was a former Angel who colluded with a trafficking gang and was very obviously unable to run a Health Authority. She bankrupted it repeatedly and such was the chaos that there were questions in the House, a bail-out from the Welsh Office was required and a hit squad of management consultants from the Welsh Office were sent in. See post ‘A Visit To Gwynedd Archives’. Was the people trafficking ex-Angel prosecuted or removed from public life? Of course not.

The people whom Meacher sued knew about the criminality and chaos in the NHS as well as about Dafydd’s gang. Donald Trelford knew about Dafydd and the Westminster Trafficking Ring years before Meacher’s libel trial. See previous posts. Alan Watkins was an experienced journalist who was himself a barrister and a member of the Garrick. Leading lights in the Garrick were Ronnie Waterhouse, Waterhouse’s friend and Dafydd’s big mate and umbrella Sir William Mars-Jones and Robin Day, Waterhouse’s closest friend. Dr Death’s mate Shirl was also a friend of Robin Day, having become pals with him when they were at Oxford University.

 

Throughout the saga of Meacher’s libel trial and the questions over whether his dad was a farm worker or an accountant and who did or didn’t know about those questionnaires, everyone in this collection of utterly worthless journos, lawyers and politicians knew about Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. None of them were as concerned about the murders of innocent victims and witnesses in north Wales as they were as to whether Michael Meacher’s dad was a true farm labourer who’s bath was downstairs in the room next to the kitchen. For the information of the Windbag, who was in this up to his eye-balls, for a few years when I little, I lived in a farm labourer’s cottage which had the bath in a little room next to the kitchen. I really don’t see why it would be in the least bit relevant if I was an MP who was colluding with a gang of vicious criminals.

Holding The Country To Ransom – Part I

My posts ‘Don’t Mess With Daddy’ and ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’ discussed Dr Hywel Francis, Labour MP for Aberavon, 2001-15 and his toadying to Top Doctors in the context of his past membership of the Communist Party of Great Britain and his pride in his dad Dai Francis’s membership of the CP of GB as well as Dai’s position as General Secretary of the South Wales NUM and the Chairman of the Wales TUC. Dai – and therefore Hywel as well – had the dirt on Dafydd and the paedophiles as well as George Thomas going back to the dawn of time as well as the not-quite-so-noble-as-Nye-Bevan-would-have-us-believe-origins-of-the-NHS. Dai and Hywel wielded a great deal of power as a result of being in possession of this gen.

Yet throughout the 1984-85 Miners’ Strike, as Thatch wrecked south Wales, Hywel was one of the many dogs which did not bark. He knew that Dafydd’s gang was supplying kids to Thatcher’s friend and Minister Sir Peter Morrison as well as to others for sex, but he didn’t so much as whimper quietly. He kept as quiet as the Windbag et al. Could that have been because of the necessity to unite against a small group of young people who had found out some of what was going on in north Wales with regard to Gwynne the lobotomist, Dr D.G.E. Wood and the Windbag’s mate Dr Tony Francis and the role that those Top Docs and their associates were playing in concealing the molesting activities of south Wales Labour’s Mr Big, George Thomas aka Viscount Tonypandy and of course all those Labour Borough Councils in London and elsewhere, who were sending hundreds of kids to children’s homes in north Wales, where there were abused and trafficked into sex work? A lot of people were particularly anxious in 1984 when George Thomas was hospitalised with an STI and got into a panic because he thought that everything was about to be blown, but dear old Leo Abse came to the rescue as usual (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’). It was in 1984 when the threats from the Top Docs really began to rain down upon the heads of Brown and me…

What with the collusion of Plaid and Dr Death’s lot as well, Thatch must have been rolling around laughing. They all wanted to Bring Down The Tories, but the whole lot of them were occupying the same sewer…

I have explained in previous posts that the Top Docs began to view Brown as some sort of armed revolutionary in 1984-85, when he was involved with work investigating the way in which the mass media reported the Miners’ Strike and generally publishing the sort of things that Dr D.G.E. Wood didn’t read in his Daily Mail.

 

Brown and I knew quite a bit about the dirty tricks played in the Miners’ Strike, but it is only recently that I have discovered how many of the key players were also involved in concealing Dafydd’s gang, as well as associated gangs and how important the collusion with that cesspit was with regard to events regarding the Miners’ Strike.

Some months ago I read ‘Digging Deeper’, the 1985 volume about the Miners’ Strike edited by Huw Beynon and it was a real revelation. I supplemented it with other reading, including Ian MacGregor’s account of the strike with a view to blogging quite extensively about the links to Dafydd et al of everyone involved, but sadly I’m not going to have the scope for that. However, I will cover some of the major figures with the strongest links over a series of posts.

In this post I’ll explore some of those involved in the run-up to the Miners’ Strike. The Tories themselves have been quite upfront regarding the Thatcher Gov’ts aim to destroy the NUM as part of the wider offensive against the trade union movement in general and how the fight with the NUM was very carefully planned and co-ordinated years before the strike and involved the police, who were effectively turned into a national paramilitary force for the purpose of doing battle with the NUM.

Although Thatcher did conduct a major offensive against trade unions and a very effective one, it is worth pointing out that Thatch went after a certain sort of union in particular and not necessarily ‘militant’ ones. Thatch went for the jugular with regard to unions representing stereotypical ‘workers’, even if they were relatively highly paid ‘workers’. The most powerful union in the country today and when Thatch did battle with the NUM is and was the BMA. The BMA is a union is spite of all the posing and as Ken Clarke observed, the BMA presents the biggest challenge of any union to Gov’ts of all hues. The BMA wins every time. The RCN also does pretty well for itself. Other public sector unions with a high proportion of NHS workers such as UNISON and UNITE don’t have the muscle of the BMA, but they are still very much with us, unlike the ‘workers’ unions which Thatch destroyed.

The Tories found it very hard to take on NHS ‘professionals’; indeed when COHSE had a scrap with Ken Clarke, he split the union by offering the members of COHSE who were Angels more dosh than the other members of COHSE. Those selfless ever-giving Angels took the bait, trousered the cash and poor old COHSE was finished. Ken had the same problems with COHSE that he had with other unions containing Top Doctors and Angels; not only did they have a squeaky clean image – as opposed to miners who hold the country to ransom – but Fings Break in the NHS if the Top Docs et al get cross and the Top Docs and Angels were crucial to keeping the lid on the Westminster Paedophile Ring. David Williams, the General Secretary of COHSE, trained as an Angel at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. They had every Gov’t by the knackers and Ken Clarke et al knew it. See post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’.

Today the trade union movement mainly represents professional or semi-professional public sector workers. That is not coincidental.

The plans to do battle with the unions began back when Thatcher was elected as Tory leader in Feb 1975. Lord Peter Carrington’s first task under Thatch as the new leader was to produce a detailed report on the lessons from the 1973-74 dispute between the NUM and Heath’s Gov’t which brought the Gov’t down. Carrington had briefly been Secretary of State for Energy in 1974. The document compiled was based on discussions with businessmen and former civil servants.

Carrington’s history in the Tory Party went back to the 1940s. He served as First Lord of the Admiralty under Harold Macmillan and he had the dirt on the Profumo Affair as well as whatever it was that Lord Louis Mountbatten and his mates got up to in that era (see post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’). Carrington knew Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, who’s wife Lady Juliet and son William loyally colluded with Dafydd et al’s wrongdoing for decades when they held leading roles in MIND. William Bingley continued doing all that he could for Dafydd and associated gangs when Bingley became Chief Executive of the Mental Health Act Commission. See previous posts. MIND had been serving the purposes of organised abuse on the part of the Top Docs at least as long ago as the 1960s, when Sir Kenneth Robinson, Health Minister in Harold Wilson’s Gov’t, was involved with the National Association for Mental Health (MIND). See previous posts. The collusion was so absolute that it could be argued that MIND was no more than a front for organised abuse.

I have mentioned in previous posts the Bingleys’ strong links with Malta. Sir Alec was stationed there when he was Commander of the Mediterranean Fleet and Lady Juliet – the social worker daughter of a Bart’s surgeon – involved herself with Good Works in Malta, such as establishing hospital services. Lady Juliet was a personal friend of Dom Mintoff, the PM of Malta and retained close links with Mintoff and Malta after the Bingleys left Malta. Again and again paedophiles from the UK were found to have settled or worked in Malta and some of the recent historical prosecutions of paedophiles, including those linked with the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, have involved people extradited from Malta. I wondered why Malta was such a magnet for abusers but I was told yesterday that Malta is a centre of serious organised crime…

Carrington was a member of Heath’s Gov’t and Defence Secretary, 1970-74. Brian Faulkner, N Ireland’s former PM, stated that it was Carrington who was the origin of the policy of torturing detainees in N Ireland in 1971-72. Not only were Top Doctors linked to Dafydd involved with the detentions/torture, but Carrington will have known about the activities at Kincora Boys’ Home as well as the paedophile child psychiatrist Dr Morris Fraser who was allowed to continue practising as a Top Doctor after he was convicted of assaulting a child. See previous posts for further details about Peter Carrington.

Lord Mountbatten has been repeatedly named as one of those involved with the abuse of boys at Kincora and there are allegations that this was the real reason for his assassination. Mountbatten had a home in Eire, just 12 miles from the N Ireland border.

The 5th Duke of Westminster, Robert Grosvenor, spent most of his life at his family seat in N Ireland. Robert Grosvenor was MP for Fermanagh and Tyrone, 1955-64 and later sat in the Lords. Grosvenor also served in the TA for many years. Recently someone e mailed me suggesting that Sir Peter Morrison had been sexually abused by Robert Grosvenor when Morrison was a child and the e mail contained sufficient information to suggest that this was not simply wild speculation. See previous posts for information about Robert Grosvenor.

Robert Grosvenor’s son, Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, was the 6th Duke of Westminster and a close friend of Carlo. Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor was the President of the City of Chester Conservative Association when Peter Morrison was the constituency MP and while Morrison’s child molesting was the subject of open gossip among the constituency party and the constituents. Peter’s sister, Dame Mary Morrison, was HM the Queen Lilibet’s Woman-of-the-Bedchamber for decades from 1960. Throughout it all, Carlo was Chancellor of UCNW, where Dr D.G.E. Wood, Dafydd et al were running a branch of the trafficking ring. Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor spent his early childhood on the family estate in N Ireland.

Boys from Bryn Estyn were taken to Grosvenor’s estate in Chester, at that time one of Grosvenor’s main homes, for ‘work experience’ sessions and refused to return but would not explain why. Gerald Grosvenor’s ancestors donated the land upon which the original St George’s Hospital Medical School at Hyde Park Corner was built and after St George’s relocated to its new site in Tooting, in the 1980s the Duke demanded that the old St George’s building should be given to him. It was a prime piece of Knightsbridge real estate and worth a great deal of money. The Duke was the richest man in the UK at the time. The Tories pretended to put up a fight, with Ken Clarke saying that the Hyde Park Corner site should be sold and the dosh reinvested into the NHS, but what with the barrel of crap which was Peter Morrison, not to mention the rest of the Ugandan activities in high and low places over decades facilitated by Top Doctors – including those at St George’s – which everyone was sitting on, the Gov’t rolled over and Grosvenor was allowed to buy the Hyde Park Corner site for £6k. See previous posts. The old St George’s Hospital is now the incredibly posh Lanesborough Hotel.

The Duke had a thing about posh hotels. When in Jan 1987 Dafydd ordered the Angels of Denbigh to drive me to a railway station and put me on a train to London after telling me that if I ever set foot again in north Wales I’d be arrested, the Duke was Director of Claridge’s! Not that Clwyd Health Authority booked me accommodation at Claridge’s, they just paid for the train ticket to London and then forged documentation which stated that I was still in the North Wales Hospital… After I arrived in London I had repeated encounters with sex offenders and other nasties who came after me (see previous posts).

The Duke had many, many public roles at the time that I was put on that train, including: President of the Spastics Society (Scope); President, National Kidney Research Fund; President, RNIB; and President, North East Wales Search and Rescue Team. Dafydd’s gang were involved in all of these organisations and over the following years, the Duke became involved with yet more organisations dominated by Dafydd and his mates. In Jan 1987 the Duke was also Director of the International Students Trust and Pro-Chancellor of Keele University.

The Duke was President of Scope, 1982-2005. David Hanson, the Labour MP for Delyn in north Wales, began working for Scope in 1982. There were allegations that Scope concealed the abused of vulnerable people. David Hanson served as a Councillor on a number of Boroughs in Cheshire during the 1980s, when Dafydd’s gang were busy in north Wales/Cheshire. David is married to Margaret Hanson, who was also a Councillor in Cheshire and a team family and children’s social worker in Cheshire. Margaret is Vice-Chairman of the lethal and troubled Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. David was elected as the Labour MP for Delyn in 1992. In 2001, Miranda appointed David as his PPS (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part II’). Just the man for the job in the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report!

Hanson (left) speaking to Policy Exchange in 2013:

The Duke of Westminster was appointed Life Vice-President of the NSPCC in 1988, a post which he retained until his death. Esther Rantzen was/is a Trustee of the NSPCC. The Esther who’s charidee Childline ignored calls from kids in north Wales who were being abused and who ignored a letter from me – in 1988 – giving her details of the wrongdoing of Dafydd et al. The Esther who didn’t know about Jimmy Savile; Savile visited Bryn Estyn and one boy claimed that Savile watching him sexually assaulted by a group of men.
The Duke of Westminster was President of the Abbeyfield Society, 1989-95. The Abbeyfield Society, which ‘helps’ elderly people, linked up with the Chester branch of Soroptimist International. Lucille Hughes was a leading light in the Soroptimists in north Wales/Chester. See comments following my post ‘Topsy and Tim’.

Like his dad the 5th Duke, Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor was an enthusiastic member of the TA, reaching the rank of Major General. Gerald was just Major when I was illegally imprisoned and transported from the Colonies of north Wales. Considering that Gerald had only managed to get two O levels despite going to Harrow and spent much of his time with a gang of mad old paedophiles, becoming Major General was quite an achievement. See previous posts for further information on Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor.

Gerald will have of course known of Brown’s dad, who was a Colonel in the TA. Brown’s dad, like Brown’s mum, was found suddenly and unexpectedly dead in bed, but it happened to Col Brown when he was quite a bit younger than Brown’s mum. Col Brown was found dead not long before the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

Col Brown was one of you lot you stupid gits! I’m glad that I’m not one of your friends if you kill them as well, I might as well write this blog.

Peter Morrison’s family were all high Tories and known to Lord Carrington. Morrison’s brother, Charles Morrison, was Tory MP for Devizes, 1964-92 and a loyal Heathite; Peter Morrison, Tory MP for Chester, 1974-92, was one of the key figures who persuaded Thatch to stand for the leadership of the Tory Party.

Charles and Peter’s father was John Morrison, Lord Margadale, the Tory MP for Salisbury, 1942-65. Ted Heath lived in Salisbury from Feb 1985 and his ashes are interred at Salisbury Cathedral. Or should that be ‘in turd’ at Salisbury Cathedral? Talking of turds, in July 1974, Robert Grosvenor, the 5th Duke of Westminster and an ardent Europhile, allowed Heath to rent a property in Wilton Street, Belgravia for an annual rent of £1,250 (just under £10,000 at 2014 prices), a tenth of the market value. The house had three storeys and a basement flat for Heath’s housekeeper and Heath continued to use it as his London home until old age prevented him from climbing the stairs.

Thank goodness that Thatch put an end to subsidised council housing, it really was a scam. If you can’t afford it, you can’t have it that’s what I say. Which is why I’m not living in Belgravia.

 

By the time that Thatch was planning her moves re the confrontation with the union movement, Peter Carrington (who had been Chairman of the Conservative Party, 1972-74) was very well-versed re VIP molesters and those who were colluding with Dafydd et al in order to conceal years of scandal.

After Carrington compiled his report on the basis of the events of 1973-74, Thatch ordered Nicholas Ridley to draw up a plan in order to prepare the ground for a battle with the unions. Ridley was the Tory MP for Cirencester and Tewkesbury, 1959-92. The Royal Agricultural College, which was and still is located at Cirencester, served as a sort of finishing school for very, very posh farmers. Farmers who were so posh that they didn’t do much farming themselves, they employed many other people to do the work on the estates that they inherited or would inherit. Captain Mark Phillips, The Princess Snap’s husband, went to Cirencester, as did Charles Morrison and many more mentioned on this blog and their associates. Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor was greatly interested in land management, being the Vice-President of the Country Landowners Association, Vice-President of the Royal Smithfield Club, President, Holstein UK & Ireland (formerly British Holstein Society) and Life Governor of the Royal Agricultural Society of England. Grosvenor will have had links with the Royal Agricultural College. There were always rumours that a great deal of wrongdoing on the part of the students at the Royal Agricultural College was successfully concealed because of their unbeatable connections.

 

Ridley will have known about the molesters of Westminster and he was a member of the Executive Committee of the National Trust, another organisation which did Dafydd’s gang so many favours (see previous posts).

Both Ridley and his wife came from aristocratic families. They had three daughters: social worker Susanna Rickett, designer and writer Jessica Ridley, and historian Jane Ridley, Professor of History at the University of Buckingham, an institution laden with people who concealed the wrongdoing of Dafydd et al as detailed in previous posts.

 

The Ridley Plan was leaked to ‘The Economist’ in 1978. When Thatch finally went to war with the NUM in 1984, it was clear that Thatch’s Gov’t had followed the Ridley Plan virtually to the letter. The Ridley Plan was a general contingency plan for a confrontation with the union movement per se. The Ridley Plan ordered: the rigging of the return on capital figures so that an above-average wage claim could be paid to the ‘vulnerable’ industries; that the eventual battle ground should be chosen by the Tories in a field which they believed that they could win; that every precaution should be taken against a challenge in electricity or gas – the most likely battlefield ‘will be coal’; that the Thatcher Gov’t should build up maximum coal stocks, particularly in the power stations, make contingency plans for the import of coal, encourage the recruitment of non-union lorry drivers by haulage companies to help move coal where necessary and introduce dual coal/oil-firing in all power stations as quickly as possible. The Ridley Plan suggested that the greatest deterrent to any strike would be ‘to cut off the money supply to the strikers and make the union finance them’. It stated that there should be a large, mobile squad of police equipped and prepared to uphold the law against violent picketing and that ‘good non-union drivers’ should be recruited to cross picket lines with police protection.

The Ridley Plan was a political response to what Thatcher’s Tory Party perceived was the potential power of a mass labour movement. The Tories were determined to elicit a confrontation entirely on their terms in order to cripple the potential of a workforce bringing down the Gov’t.

 

In 1981 the Tories actively avoided a confrontation with the NUM because they considered that the ground for the confrontation with the unions was not yet prepared. The NCB (National Coal Board) at that time was Chaired by Derek Ezra and he announced a major pit closure programme. The south Wales miners went on strike, as did miners in parts of Durham. Thatcher was deeply unpopular at the time, the Tory Cabinet retreated and the pit closures programme was withdrawn. Joe Gormley, the President of the NUM, declared victory and ordered a return to work.

In 2002, the BBC revealed that Joe Gormley was an MI5 informer, who supplied the security services with the miners’ plans for industrial action in the early 1970s. Despite receiving warnings from the top of the union, MI5 and the Government failed to head off the 1972 strike. A Special Branch officer claimed that MI5 told the Government that the strike would not happen; the strike did happen and it brought down the Gov’t. Special Branch claimed that Gormley, a right-winger, was increasingly concerned that the far left was gaining control of the union and agreed to talk to Special Branch. So MI5 sprang into action and continued springing to defend against the Red Threat after Thatch ascended the throne and therefore spent their time hassling my friends and I, because concealing a gang of paedophiles who were murdering witnesses was just so important and one couldn’t possibly have the young adult offspring of mostly Tory families – you stupid old gits MI5 – publishing what they had found out.

Joe Gormley too knew something about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the associated rot which was being concealed by the trade union movement.

It was David – now Lord David – Howell, the Secretary of State for Energy, 1979-81, who’s career was considered to have been damaged by the Tories retreating from a war with the NUM in 1981. David Howell was the Tory MP for Guildford, 1966-97. Howell assisted the Top Docs of Guildford along with their research fraud and plagiarism when they needed a hand (see previous posts).

John Biffen admitted on an episode of ‘Weekend World’ in 1981 that taking on the miners would be suicidal for the Gov’t.

By 1981 Mary Wynch was heading for the Courts with her litigation against Dafydd and the gang.

Thatch prepared for the mother of all battles with the NUM over the next three years. One of her first moves after the Gov’t climb down in 1981 was to order the Civil Contingencies Unit, in the strictest secrecy, to set up a committee, MISC 57, Chaired by civil servant Robert Wade-Gery, which also drew on the skills of the Unit’s secretary, Brigadier Tony Budd. The task of the committee was to examine the files on 1973-74 and prevent the vulnerability arising from low coal-stocks.

Sir Robert Wade-Gery was the son of the Oxford Historian Theodore Wade-Gery. Robert Wade-Gery was educated at Winchester College and New College, Oxford. New College was a recruiting ground for the British security services; MI5 recruited Peter Mandelson via a New College academic when Mandy was at St Catherine’s College, Oxford (see post ‘A Study In Tyranny’). Wade-Gery was a Fellow of All Souls and in 1951 he joined the Foreign Service and began a career as a diplomat. Wade-Gery served at Bonn, Tel Aviv and Saigon. He was Minister at Madrid, 1973–77 and at Moscow, 1977–79. Wade-Gery was Deputy Secretary to the Cabinet, 1979–82, under Callaghan and then Thatch and High Commissioner to India, 1982–87. He left the Diplomatic Service and was a Director of Barclay’s  Capital, 1987–99. Wade-Gery was a member and Treasurer (1991–2005) of the International Institute for Strategic Studies and was Chairman of the Governors of SOAS, University of London (1990–99).

The Torygraph’s 2015 obituary of Wade-Gery told us that he was Very Clever. So that’s why he prioritised the jobs and pensions of a gang of paedophiles and their associates over the lives of witnesses to their crimes. The Torygraph also told us that Wade-Gery joined the Central Policy Review Staff set up by PM Edward Heath, in 1970 to ‘ginger up’ Whitehall.

Wade-Gery got on well with Thatch. When he was sent to Dublin to conduct secret negotiations with the Republic , he was given a choice of travelling under his own name and being met by an armed escort, thus signalling his presence to the IRA, or travelling as an anonymous visitor. He chose the latter, but used a passport under an assumed name, a cloak-and-dagger element ‘that delighted him’. I wonder if Wade-Gery acquired his fake ID from Dafydd, Dafydd’s been doing IDs for years now.

During the Falklands conflict Wade-Gery was joint secretary of the War Cabinet. He was at lunch at Chequers on Sunday May 2 1982 when the decision was taken to attack the General Belgrano. Wade-Gery passed the instruction to the Admiralty and minutes later the General Belgrano was sunk. He ‘always believed it was the right decision’. Pity about all the poor sods on board and the lies that were subsequently told in order to pretend that the Belgrano was somewhere where it wasn’t and presenting a threat when it wasn’t.

It’s the Stigma that’s the problem!

 

Wade-Gery, ‘could be grand in both intellect and manner’. While he was ordering the death of numerous people and concealing a sex trafficking gang with a side-line in drugs and child porn. As well as in fake IDs.

The Wade-Gerys entertained vast numbers of British visitors. On one occasion Sir Robert ‘memorably gave lunch to Norman Tebbit and Rajiv Gandhi, their wives and no other guests, knowing that they were probably the only two senior politicians alive who had begun their professional lives as airline pilots’. Tebbs had been the union rep for the airline pilots as well and a very effective one.

In 1984 the BBC filmed a documentary, ‘With Respect, Ambassador’, in which Wade-Gery was photographed taking tea on the lawn of his Residence. The image appeared on the cover of ‘Radio Times’ and the splendour of the scene, complete with silver and turbaned servants, caused fury in London, where the diplomatic service was under attack for living too luxuriously.

Let them eat Largactil!

Wade-Gery’s ‘mastery of facts, power of expression and willingness to engage in new projects were admired, and he established a role for himself as [Barclay’s Capital] roving emissary to Asia and eastern Europe whenever business opportunities arose. Taiwan was an early prospect, and Wade-Gery was indefatigable in pursuit of connections at the highest level…In the early 1990s, Wade-Gery was closely engaged in [Barclay’s Capital’s] international privatisation work, notably in Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia.’

‘Serious organised crime? That’ll do nicely Sir.’

 

Some of the victims of Dafydd’s gang in north Wales were 11 and 12 years old. Some of those who were fitted up by the gang and imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre were fifteen years old. The deaths of the children in care who’s bodies were found hanging in Risley were recorded in the statistics as deaths of ‘male prisoners’. See post ‘Include Me Out’. They were children who had been abducted by a paedophile gang which was afforded complete protection at the highest levels of Gov’t for decades.

‘Paedophile ring in north Wales you say, concealed by Whitehall and Westminster? But I’m a Fellow of All Souls!’

  • Postcards of the Past - Old Postcards of All Souls College ...
 ‘These young people making the allegations are criminals.’ Yes, they’ve been arrested and convicted for ‘staring at a social worker in Safeways’, the social worker concerned being a colleague of the paedophile ring which doesn’t exist.

 

In 1982 Glyn England’s contract as the Chairman of the CEGB was not renewed; Glyn England was ordered to substitute oil for coal in power stations to accumulate coal stocks. Thatch appointed Sir Walter Marshall, the key ideologist of the nuclear power industry, as Glyn England’s replacement. Glyn England was a founder member of the SDP who subsequently remained loyal to the Lib Dems. Glyn was born in the Rhondda. When he was older, he lived near Bristol and was Chair of the Mendip Society. England and his wife both donated their brains to Bristol University’s brain bank when they died. A fellow traveller of Dr Death who was a pal of Bristol University School of Medicine? Surely Glyn England knew Dr D.G.E. Wood… Glyn England didn’t die until 2013 so he hung around a very long time to cause trouble.

Walter – later Lord – Marshall was Chair of the CEGB, 1982-89. Marshall was born in Cardiff, studied at Birmingham University and joined the AERE (Atomic Energy Research Establishment) Harewell in 1954, where he worked with Lord Brian Flowers. Flowers was from Swansea and spent years covering up all the crap at London University (and Manchester University) caused by Dafydd’s associates. See previous posts. Marshall became Director of the AERE in 1968 and Chairman of the UK Atomic Energy Authority in 1981. Marshall was Chairman of the World Association of Nuclear Operators, 1989-93.

Walter Marshall knew what is was at Windscale that Harold Macmillan’s Gov’t concealed which Dafydd also found out about and subsequently blackmailed people in high places over for years (see post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’).

 

For further information behind the scenes with regard to the 1984-85 Miners’ Strike, particularly the role and activities of Civil Service mandarins in the Dept of Energy, see post ‘That’s Entertainment’.

 

Ian MacGregor was appointed as Chair of NCB on 1 Sept 1983 by Nigel Lawson, Secretary of State for Energy. Lawson was the MP for Blaby in Leicestershire and he knew about the Leicestershire Child Abuse Ring which involved the Labour MP Greville Janner, the social worker Frank Beck who was a Liberal Councillor, as well as many others. The Leicestershire gang was linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales/Cheshire.

MacGregor’s brief was to close pits and reduce capacity. MacGregor was an ‘outside appointment’. He had previously been the Chairman of British Steel, where he reduced the number of workers by half. There had been a similar reduction in the number of workers at British Leyland when MacGregor was on the Board. MacGregor had established himself ‘throughout the west’ as a leader with an anti-union reputation when he was in the US.

It was Eric Varley who introduced Ian MacGregor to state owned industry in Britain re British Leyland. Eric Varley was a right wing Labour politician who was a big pal of the odious Labour politician Gerald Kaufman. After Kaufman died it became clear that he and Varley were even bigger friends than everyone thought, because Kaufperson left absolutely everything to Eric Varley in his will, excluding Kaufman’s children. There was a scrap, although Kaufman’s family didn’t have to work too hard because Varley had died some years previously. The will however came as a big surprise to everyone. See previous posts for more info on Varley and Kaufman.

Ian MacGregor himself had a few links to people who provided an umbrella for Dafydd and the Top Docs before MacGregor got anywhere near the NCB. If I have the scope to do so, I will revisit MacGregor’s background in a future post.

 

Walter Marshall and MacGregor were ready to implement the Ridley Plan.

During the miners’strike, MacGregor used Tim Bell and David Hart as PR people. Tommy Thompson of Opinion Research and Communications carried out polls of miners’ and the general public’s opinions which were fed back to MacGregor.

 

Thatch’s confrontation with the NUM finally happened in 1984 and was the result of deliberate engineering by Thatcher’s Gov’t who were by then ready for it. Thatch was still high in public opinion as a result of the Falklands’ victory. The invasion of the Falkland’s had only occurred because of the gross incompetence of the British Gov’t and the action on the ground hadn’t been quite as glorious as the media portrayed, but the media reporting was all very carefully managed. Furthermore, Thatch’s Gov’t had made diplomatic links with Galtieri shortly after Thatch was elected and the British press weren’t interested in Galtieri torturing and killing his opponents (who were often trade unionists and socialists) or dropping nuns out of helicopters over the ocean until it was useful PR for the British Gov’t.

Killing your political opponents? The British state would never have sunk so low. Killing the witnesses to a gang of sex traffickers in high places? Ooh, that’s different…

On 1 Oct 1983 the NCB announced its pay offer of 5.2% and gave notice of a rapid scheme of pit closures. Thatch denied that there had been any contact between the Gov’t and Ian MacGregor or anyone at the NCB. The Gov’t had actually been in contact with MacGregor constantly via intermediaries and was throughout the strike. Ian MacGregor also maintained private links with Norman Willis, General Secretary of the TUC, throughout the strike. The NUM announced an overtime ban on 23 Oct 1983.  On 1 March 1984, the NCB announced the imminent closure of Cortonwood Colliery in Yorkshire and this was the detonator for the strike.

A Cabinet sub-committee, MISC 101, was established and embarked on twice-weekly meetings. MISC 101 was Chaired by Thatch and composed of: Leon Brittan (Home Secretary); Nigel Lawson (Chancellor); Peter Walker (Energy); Tebbs (Industry); Tom King (Employment); Nicholas Ridley (Employment); and the Attorney General Sir Michael Havers, with Brigadier Budd and David Goodall of the Civil Contingencies Unit in attendance.

All the members of this sub-committee knew about Dafydd’s gang, the related gangs and the involvement of some Westminster and Whitehall figures in organised abuse. All the sub-committee members concealed it. While he was AG, Michael Havers actively blocked the prosecutions of certain people for child sex offences, including the diplomat Sir Peter Hayman and Cyril Smith. See previous posts.

It has been repeatedly alleged that Leon Brittan was a child abuser himself. I have no evidence that he was, but I do have evidence that under Brittan, the Home Office colluded with much criminality, including that of Dafydd et al in north Wales. The Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens gave Brittan a dossier which listed the names of Westminster figures and others whom Dickens claimed were abusing children. Dickens also maintained that the gangs involved were dealing in drugs and child porn. Who ever could Dickens have been thinking of? Brittan later claimed never to have received Dickens’ dossier; then he remembered that he had received it; then he couldn’t remember what was in it or where he had put it. When Brittan was Home Secretary, dozens of files containing information about and details of allegations of the abuse of children by Westminster figures and others went missing and have never been found. See previous posts.

 

Eric Heffer was Chairman of the Labour Party, Oct 1983-Oct 1984, under the Windbag’s leadership. Fatty Heffer wrote the introduction to Beynon’s edited volume ‘Digging Deeper’. Fatty fumes away about the union movement providing insufficient support for the 1984-85 NUM strike and bangs on about how the state apparatus – the police, the law, the judges, the Civil Service and the media – were all used against ‘the workers’. Which is completely true. But the same state apparatus was also used against the victims of a vicious criminal sex abuse gang and there were a few people in north Wales who would have made credible witnesses to that gang and who would have willingly worked with people on the left to bring Thatcher’s lot down. Fatty Heffer et al were not interested in what was happening to us because Fatty and his wife Doris, a former medical secretary, were part of Dafydd’s Liverpool empire. Fatty and Doris were well in with the Top Doctors. Furthermore Fatty and Doris were on excellent terms with Thatch but that was not reported until after Fatty died (see previous posts). The media did Fatty a few favours there; Fatty in his flat at Dolphin Square, the apartment block to which kids from the Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor were being trafficked (see post ‘Are You Local?’).

 

The NCB Area Director of the South Wales Coalfield, 1973-85, was Philip Weekes, one of the Windbag’s ‘boyhood idols’. Which is a bit weird really, because most boys of the Windbag’s generation idolised Biggles or the like.

Weekes’s obituary tells us that ‘Weekes was the last regional NCB boss to join the NCB’s campaign to try to persuade the miners back to work. It was widely believed at that time that only the threat from on high that Weekes’s plans for further investment in the stricken coalfield might be in jeopardy induced him to bow to the NCB’s high command.’ Whoever believed that must have forgotten that the NUM went on strike because Thatch planned to close the coal industry down, including the south Wales coalfield. Although in the end, the strike ‘represented the wreck of his hopes for mining in South Wales, throughout it he worked behind the scenes with the unions to ensure that basic maintenance work on the pits was carried out’. As the Area Director of the South Wales Coalfield, the Windbag’s hero will have known that the ostentatious maintenance work was a con, because Thatch was going to close those pits down…

Philip Weekes was ‘born on the outskirts of Tredegar, the son of a pharmacist who ran the local Boots. He was educated at Tredegar County School from where he went to University College, Cardiff’. So Weekes came from Nye Bevan territory and will have known the Great Man from Tredegar who buggered off to live in the poshest part of south west London when he was able to, because they don’t have a Fortnum and Mason in Tredegar.

‘After graduating in mining engineering, Weekes joined Tredegar Iron and Coal in 1939. In 1942 he joined the RAF with the idea of training as a pilot. Owing to a sight defect this was not to be and by 1944 Weekes was back in the coal industry. By 1946, Weekes was manager of the Wyllie Colliery, near Caerphilly and took it through nationalisation the following year. In 1948 he became manager of Oakdale Colliery, one of the South Wales coalfield’s biggest pits. In 1950 Weekes was seconded to the Colonial Office and sent to Nigeria to assess the situation at the Enugu mines, where miners had been rioting’.

‘Returning to Wales in 1951, Weekes held a number of posts on the ground followed by a spell as Director of Studies at the NCB Staff College in 1964, a period as Deputy Director (mining) in the South Midlands area in 1967. Thereafter he was Chief Mining Engineer and then Director General of Mining at the national HQ in London.’

In 1973 Weekes was made South Wales Area Director. ‘On the horizon, pit closures loomed on a massive scale, with thousands likely to be thrown out of work. The miners’ strike over pay that brought down the Government of Heath in February 1974 was a filip to miners’ morale’, although ‘the tide of closures was irresistible. Wyllie…had already closed in 1968. By the early 1980s, among seven pits on yet another “in jeopardy” list was Oakdale…already by then down to 900 men employed from its peak of more than 2,000. Though he frequently had to steel himself to make blunt pronouncements, Weekes strove where he could to compensate for the closure of uneconomic pits by investing in and developing new projects’.

Weekes knew that the ‘new projects’ in which the Gov’t invested were laughable. Thousands and thousands of people were put out of work and small corners of the coalfield were converted into tourist attractions which employed a dozen or so people on the lowest wages. The tourist attractions are nice to visit but they didn’t replace British industry. I saw a Mr Angry in the audience on a Vincent Kane TV programme say this once and Kane shut him up. Kane was talking to a Gov’t PR vehicle who was boasting about the new investment and all the accompanying Regeneration Of South Wales and Mr Angry stood up and yelled out ‘this is complete crap’ and began reeling off some very embarrassing facts and figures. Vincent Kane told Mr Angry that there was no point in him shouting because he didn’t have a microphone, so no-one would have heard him. Well I did and I wasn’t even in the studio, I was at home watching the tele. Who was given the microphone on so many of Vincent Kane’s shows? Dafydd. See previous posts.

During the 1984-85 strike, Weekes helped to ensure that in South Wales, the strike was policed by ‘local officers’ and not by those brought in from metropolitan areas. It was suggested by Weekes’s fan club that it was because of this that the violent clashes between pickets and police seen in other areas were almost entirely absent from the South Wales area.

Would someone like to explain how the Area Director for the NCB in South Wales managed to wield that sort of influence over policing? It is known that the policing of the 1984-85 strike was being ordered at Gov’t level; Thatch and the Cabinet had that ridiculous Cobra room constructed, which was equipped with hotlines to Chief Constables. Microphones descended from the ceiling to enable Thatch and the Cabinet to direct the troops.

‘Emergency, emergency, students from Bangor with parents who are Tories have tripped over the Westminster Paedophile Ring – get us Dafydd NOW!’

In the summer of 1984, Brown and I attended a public meeting in Bangor which had been called by Cledan Mears, the Bishop of Bangor, 1982-92, to discuss the heroin problem which had hit Bangor and Anglesey. There were teachers in the audience who ALL complained about the removal of local police officers from north Wales to man the picket lines in other parts of the UK. The guest of honour at this meeting who had been invited to address the audience, being an Expert On Drugs, was one Dafydd. It was farcical. See post ‘Amber Rudd, The Miners’ Strike And A Memory Jogged’.

The previous Bishop of Bangor, Gwilym Williams, who also served as Archbishop of Wales, had been fully on board with Dafydd’s gang (see previous posts). As were huge swathes of the North Wales Police, even if they had been redeployed to beat up the pickets at Orgreave. It would have been very difficult for Cledan Mears not to have known what Dafydd et al were up to. Mears went to Abersytwyth University, had served as a curate in Mostyn and in a village near Wrexham, before becoming the vicar of Cwm near Ebbw Vale. From 1959 to 1973, Mears was a lecturer at what is now Cardiff University, after which he became the vicar of St Mark’s Gabalfa, his last position before his ordination to the episcopate.

Weekes’s ‘manifest distaste for the tactics of the NCB under Ian MacGregor inevitably communicated itself to headquarters in London. The last straw was his being summoned to HQ and told by the NCB Chairman to offer redundancy to every miner in the South Wales coalfield. He refused. He retired a few months later.’

Weekes knew what Thatcher’s plan was, he knew why MacGregor had been put in post and Weekes scarpered with his pension intact as Thatch proceeded to destroy south Wales…

Weekes’s had a great time in retirement, as good as any Top Doctor. He gained a private pilot’s licence – even though there had been that problem with his eyesight when he was young – and ‘devoted himself to regeneration projects in South Wales’. He was Chairman of Garden Festival Wales, ‘a project to transform industrial wastelands in Ebbw Vale into gardens, housing, leisure parks and sites for the new industries.’

Can someone let me know where the new industries are? If they’ve replaced the south Wales coalfield, I’ve somehow missed them, as has the Welsh economy.

‘Weekes acted as Consultant when more than 200 men of the Tower Colliery, Hirwaun, closed in 1994, returned the following year to reopen it, and was, from 1994 to 1999, Chairman (unpaid) of the workforce buyout company, Goitre Tower Anthracite, through ‘which the men operate it as a co-operative to this day’.

Tower Colliery was in Ann Clwyd’s constituency and in 1994 Clwyd staged a sit-in to protest against its closure. The world was treated to photos of Battling Ann wearing a hard hat and with black coal dust smudged on her face. Ann is one of many who knew about Dafydd’s gang – Ann grew up near Denbigh and she and her husband were journos – but remained silent until the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal could be concealed no longer in the 1990s. Ann did speak out then, rather more than most other politicians, but she had kept quiet for many decades. See previous posts.

John Redwood was the Secretary of State for Wales who, in 1995, helped the miners buy out Tower Colliery. While he was doing that, Redwood was colluding with the serious criminality of Dafydd and the gang. As Director of Thatch’s Number 10 Policy Unit, 1983-85, Redwood really has to take some responsibility for the carnage in the south Wales coalfield himself.

The much-publicised enterprise at Tower Colliery with which Weekes et al assisted ceased operation in 2008. There are now discussions as to whether the site can be turned into a museum or a tourist attraction. Well they’ll be able to get a grant from the Welsh Gov’t and it’ll provide six jobs through the summer months when a few people on minimum wages are needed to serve the coffees and bara brith to the visitors.

Vincent Kane is dead and this is a blog not a TV programme, so Kane can’t shut me up…

 

From 1992 until recently, Philip Weekes was also Chairman of Silent Valley Waste Disposal. Er, yes, a most appropriate summary for Thatcher’s policy re the Valleys with which Weekes so ably assisted.

In addition Weekes ‘had been for 15 years a governor of the United World College of the Atlantic, was a member of the Prince of Wales’s committee, 1978-89 and a member of the Independent Broadcasting Authority Wales Advisory Committee, 1983-90.’

Well-in with the paedophiles’ friends then.

The Windbag’s friend the Baroness of Ely, who’s dad the Rev Bob was the Labour Leader of South Glamorgan County Council, went to Atlantic College and as an adult the Baroness sat on the governing body, just like Philip Weekes! See previous posts.

Weekes was given an OBE in 1977 and was advanced to CBE in 1993. He’d made someone happy then.

Philip Weekes was survived by his wife Branwen and by a son and two daughters. His younger son was Huw Weekes, an HTV journalist and broadcaster with HTV. Huw was found dead at the age of 43, on a beach near Llantwit Major in Jan 2001. A verdict of misadventure was returned. Huw was said to have drowned and taken an overdose, although it was said that he did not leave a suicide note so no-one could be certain that he had planned to kill himself. HTV newsreader Tara Eugene told Huw’s inquest in Cardiff that she had received a telephone call from Huw hours before he was found dead. She had raised the alarm after Huw had threatened to kill himself. The inquest heard that Huw had been suffering from severe depression for three months. His brother Gareth said after the hearing: “His family and friends were desperately worried and we did our best to help him through, but none of us was aware of how ill he really was. The family always believed that Huw’s death was most probably an accident which occurred when he was in a confused state of mind.” A police officer told the inquest that Huw been found in hiking gear and with an ordnance survey map of the area in his rucksack. The cause of death was given as drowning due to a high level of the tranquilizer Temazepam in his bloodstream. The coroner stated that Huw’s ‘reactions had been altered by the drug in his system and he became immersed in sea water’. Temazepam is addictive but it is mild. One doesn’t lose one’s senses when immersed in sea water, even if one takes a lot of Temazepam. The coroner at Huw’s inquest was Dr Lawrence Addicott, the coroner for Cardiff and Vale, who has a track record of drawing some odd conclusions when faced with the deaths of people whom Top Doctors have neglected.

Huw was born in Newport and began his journalistic career at the age 18 as a reporter on the Weston-super-Mare Mercury. From there he moved onto the Bristol Evening Post before beginning his broadcasting career in 1980 at BBC Radio Newcastle. In 1982 Huw become a presenter at Yorkshire Television and then Tyne Tees Television, before returning to Wales in 1988 to present the HTV news.

So Huw knew a great deal about Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and the associated gangs in Yorkshire and the north east of England. He had also passed through D.G.E. Wood’s family’s manor of Bristol.

Huw died 11 months after the Waterhouse Report was published.

After Huw died, Rhodri The Ale Twat, who was by then FM, expressed his sorrow.

A conference in Huw’s memory was addressed by Jane Hutt, the AM for the Vale of Glamorgan and at that time the Welsh Gov’ts Minister of Health.

The theme of the conference was a very familiar one: the battle to fight the Stigma of depression. Dr Chris Manning, Chairman of the event and of Depression Alliance, ‘the leading UK charity for people suffering from the condition’, explained that: ”Stigma leaves people feeling isolated and unable to talk about their problems. This is why so few people seek medical help until they get too ill. In these cases people will often lose their jobs, and may lose their homes and families as well.’

Chris Manning knew as well as I did that when Huw was found dead, ‘stigma’ was neither here nor there. People in Wales – and in the rest of the UK – were screaming as loudly as they could and there would still be no ‘help’ forthcoming. Huw DID ask for help; that is how he was known to be severely depressed and that is why his colleague Tara ‘raised the alarm’. Presumably no-one bothered to respond. But no-one ever did, I was watching what was happening in the mental health services at the time. Patients were being TOLD to ‘go on and do it then, it’s your responsibility’. If you say that to a suicidal person, many of them will kill themselves.

Whatever a patient’s problem, it was constructed as being their fault, while that smug bitch Jane Hutt sat in the Senedd and bollocked on about Stigma. North West Wales had the second highest suicide rate for women in the whole of England and Wales at the time of Huw’s death and one of the highest rates for men. Was it the Snowdonia climate then Jane? It was often a bit chilly and wet up there and the Stigma probably descended upon the patients along with the mist and the cloud. Then how did I witness one adult man crying and begging for help at the Hergest Unit to no avail, only to be arrested by the police when he became so desperate that he later rang up an Angel and told her that he felt like ‘chopping a gas pipe’? He didn’t even try to do this, he just told an Angel that he felt like it; Tony Francis ordered the Angel to call the police and have the patient arrested. He spent three weeks in Walton Prison, was released to the ‘care’ of Dafydd’s ‘nursing home’ at very great cost to him and his wife and all charges against him were subsequently dropped.

The year after Huw died of Stigma, Alun Davies, the manager of the Hergest Unit, rang the police eight or nine times in one day demanding that I should be arrested, because I had told his secretary, over the phone, that he was a fat idiot. When the police refused to arrest me, Davies phoned them back and said that I’d threatened to kill him. I was arrested. Not immediately, because when Davies made the calls I was sitting in the locked ward of the Hergest Unit, having been sectioned. I was discharged after Davies spent all day ringing the police  and within an hour of arriving home, the police turned up and arrested me for ‘threats to kill’. The case circulated around the courts for nearly two years and the charges were withdrawn on the first day of the trial.

Davies made all of those phone calls from the National Assembly, where he was in a meeting with Jane Hutt and her officials.

All down to Stigma was it Jane?

 
 

 

Kim Howells, an NUM official in Weekes’s era, said: ‘There were many who believed that Phil Weekes, a brilliant mining engineer and communicator, should have been made Chairman of the Coal Board in the early Eighties. If that had come about the story of mining in Britain would be very different.’ It would have also been very different if the whole bloody lot of them had not have been concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring because if someone had piped up about Peter Morrison, Thatcher’s Gov’t would have fallen. As I suspect that Kim Howells knows…

This was the problem Kim:

Thatch appointed Peter Walker as Energy Secretary in June 1983 in preparation to take on the NUM. By June 1983, Brown, me and our friends had been placed under surveillance by the security services and Brown had received his first murder threat.

There was much comment that Walker was an odd choice for Thatch; Walker was a well-known Tory wet who, after the Miners’ Strike, was very critical of Thatch’s economic policies. What Walker did know all about though was George Thomas and Peter Morrison’s molesting, Dafydd’s gang in north Wales as well as a great many other matters.

Walker was the MP for Worcester, 1961-92; there was a paedophile ring in the Hereford/Worcester area, which was publicly admitted in the 1990s by David Tombs, the Director of Herefordshire and Worcestershire Social Services (see previous posts). Tombs maintained that he ‘warned’ people about the Westminster Paedophile Ring but was told by civil servants that he’d never be able to confront it because so many people were involved. However, some months ago I received an e mail which maintained that Tombs was one of the UK Directors of Social Services who had caused major problems by colluding with the gangs and only outed the situation in his own area after many years as investigations and inquiries began across the UK in the 1990s.

Walker was a member of Heath’s Gov’t. In 1970 he was appointed Minister of State for Housing and Local Gov’t; he was Secretary of State for the Environment, 1970-72; Secretary of State for the DTI and President of the Board of Trade, Nov 1972- March 1974. It was Walker holding the latter role during the Miners’ Strike of 1973-74 that people believed was the reason why Thatch appointed him as one of her key people to handle the 1984-85 Miners’ Strike. It is far more likely to have been because Walker knew what was being concealed by all political parties and knew that the Windbag’s mates employed as Top Docs in north Wales were in the thick of it. Mrs Windbag of course came from Holyhead, where her Labour activist parents had kept quiet about Dafydd et al for years. By 1983, the children’s home in Holyhead and Y Gwyngyll, the children’s home in Llanfairpwll on Anglesey, were known to be centres of abuse; events at Y Gwyngyll, the home in Llanfairpwll, really did raise eyebrows and as a result Gwynedd County Council were forced to hold an inquiry in the mid-1980s. The Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council, Ioan Bowen Rees, commissioned his old mates from Dyfed County Council – where Ioan had previously been County Secretary – to investigate and they of course found no serious cause for concern. See previous posts.

 

After Ted Heath’s Gov’t fell, Walker served as Shadow Defence Secretary, Oct 1974-Feb 1975. When Thatch won the General Election in May 1979, Walker was Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. In which capacity he would have dealt with landowners like the Duke of Westminster and Lloyd Tyrell-Kenyon aka Lord Kenyon from north Wales, who’s son Thomas was known to be sexually abusing at least one boy in the care of the social services in north Wales. Among many other things, Lord Kenyon was President of UCNW; Chairman of Clwyd Health Authority; a member of the North Wales Police Authority; a JP; a Director of Lloyds Bank; and the most senior Freemason in north Wales. See previous posts for further details of Lord Kenyon and Thomas’s adventures. Walker would also have known Professor Richard Howarth, the Agricultural Economist from UCNW who by 1982 was dining with Thatcher and somehow became one of her advisers, despite the laughable standards and chaos prevailing in the Agriculture Dept in which he worked (see previous posts). Mary Wynch was working as a secretary in the same Dept when Dafydd had unlawfully arrested and imprisoned her just three years previously. By the time that Howarth was supping with Thatch, Mary was on her way to the Master of the Rolls and people at Gov’t level knew that.

Walker didn’t just have recent dirt on those in High Places, he had dirt going back many, many years. Walker had risen through the Young Conservatives, becoming a branch Chairman at the age of 14 and later National Chairman. He knew Beata Brookes, Tory MEP for north Wales, 1979-89, who was a mate of Dafydd’s and had been a social worker in Denbighshire when she was young. Beata was the daughter of a wealthy farming family in north east Wales, of whom the male members were enthusiastic Freemasons. Like Peter Walker, Beata Brookes was a big wig in the Young Conservatives in the Pre-Cambrian. Walker was one year younger than Brookes.

Here are the two clean-living Young Conservatives:

Rhyl Life: QUIZ ANSWER # 148

 

By the time that north Wales was supplying the Westminster Paedophile Ring in the 1970s, Beata Brookes had as many public roles as Lord Kenyon, but whereas Lord Kenyon’s positions also included senior roles in the world of Museums/Arts, Beata just ensured that she was a leading light in every disability charidee in north Wales, as well as in Clwyd Health Authority and Clwyd Social Services. There was no escaping Beata Brookes if one was ‘in care’ or disabled. Beata’s brother was a leading light in countryside sports/farmers/landowners organisations. For more information about Beata and the story of how she caused a civil war in the Tory Party when she tried to stand for Parliament in 1983, see post ‘The Celtic Iron Lady And Yet More Recent History’. It was Beata’s Parliamentary ambitions which eventually led to Sir Anthony Meyer standing as a ‘stalking horse’ in a leadership challenge to Thatch in 1989 and in my blog post on Brookes, I gave Sir Anthony rather more credit than he deserved; when I wrote it, I presumed that Meyer was so appalled at the trafficking ring being facilitated by Brookes et al that he tried to blow them all out of the water. I found out later that Meyer himself was in it up to his eye-balls, but he just hated Thatch and Brookes and was hoping and expecting Heseltine to stand as the ‘real’ leadership candidate in 1989. See previous posts for the full story of Meyer’s dealings (and Heseltine’s) which were every bit as dirty as Beata’s.

 

Peter Walker was a founder of the Tory Reform Group (TRG). The TRG was formally established in June 1975 from the merger of four like-minded groups: PEST (Pressure for Economic and Social Toryism), two separate London dining clubs – named the Macleod Group and Social Tory Action Group – and a consortium in the North West also known as the McLeod Group led by two Young Conservative activists and parliamentary candidates Steve Perry (PPC Liverpool Edge Hill) and Stuart Lindsay (former PPC Ellesmere Port). Edge Hill and Ellesmere Port were constituencies within Dafydd’s empire. At his home in Westminster, Walker met with the aforementioned Tories and they agreed to come together to form the TRG.

From the start, the TRG was an activist group with membership, as opposed to being a think tank. The TRG hoped to spread its view through publication of pamphlets, discussion with MPs, use of media, and by widening its membership. Weekly lunches were inherited from PEST. London PEST had organized a Tuesday Luncheon Club in local pubs. These lunches provided a programme of speakers as well as opportunities for members to become involved in constituency activities.

In January 1976, TRG released its first publication, entitled ‘Home Run’ by Nicholas Scott MP, the President of TRG, arguing for a nationwide extension of the GLC’s sale of council houses to their tenants. Nick Scott was a well-known drunk who’s alcohol problem eventually became very, very severe. Scott was the Tory MP for Paddington South, 1966-74. The constituency was a wealthy one on the doorstep of St George’s Hospital and was a hub of Top Doctors. The local Labour Party fielded Bertrand Russell’s son Conrad as their candidate against Scott. By the 1970s, Bertrand Russell lived in north Wales and knew all about Dafydd’s gang (see post ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’). Scott also served as the MP for Chelsea, 1974-97.

Everyone involved in the establishment of the TRG had the dirt of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. The President of the Macleod Group was David Knox, the Tory MP for Leek, Staffordshire, 1970-83 and Staffordshire Moorlands, 1983-97. There was a big ring in Staffordshire which eventually revealed itself in the Staffordshire Pin-Down Scandal and the terrible problems in the NHS there; both had been concealed for years. See previous posts.  One Vice-President of the Macleod Group was Robert Carr, the MP for Mitcham, 1950-74 and then Carshalton, 1974-76. There was a trafficking gang in the Mitcham area. Furthermore Carr was a member of Heath’s Gov’t: Secretary of State for Employment, 1970-72; Lord President of the Council, April-Nov 1972; and Home Secretary, 1972-74 and in all of these roles concealed organised abuse. The Lord President of the Council is also the visitor for UCNW. Lynda – now Baroness – Chalker was another Vice-President; Chalker was MP for Wallasey, 1974-92, a constituency within the Liverpool branch of Dafydd’s empire and concealed abuse in her many roles (see previous posts). Vice-President Sir Nigel Fisher was MP for Hitchin, 1950-55 and Surbiton, 1955-83 and from 1951 was PPS to Gwilym Lloyd-George, which placed Fisher at the centre of the action. Nigel Fisher was a big mate of Ian McLeod himself, who was quite mad and at the centre of Harold Macmillan’s Knight of the Long Knives (see previous post), so knowing Ian Mcleod will have been even more exciting than knowing Gwilym Lloyd-George. Fisher’s second wife Patricia was the Ulster Unionist MP for North Down, 1953-55. Patricia’s father Sir Walter D. Smiles had preceded her as the Ulster Unionist MP for North Down. At the time of Sir Walter’s death in 1953, Patricia was living in Cheshire… Patricia’s first husband was the cricketer  Neville Montagu Ford, a descendent of the 4th Lord Lyttelton. Their daughter Sally married Sir Michael Grylls (father of TV pseudo-survivalist Bear). Michael Grylls was one of those involved in the Cash for Questions/Ian Greer lobbying scandal, along with Peter Morrison and Neil Hamilton, as discussed in previous posts. Neville Montagu Ford’s brother Sir Edward was Assistant Private Secretary to King George VI and then to HM the Queen Lilibet. So Patricia and her circle were more people who knew about Ugandan discussions in Royal Places.

 

When Peter Walker was 14 yrs old, he spoke at a Conservative Conference and was invited to meet Leo Amery, who had plotted the overthrow of Lloyd George’s Coalition in 1922. Amery told Walker to become financially independent before entering the Commons, because it would stop him having to be compromised ‘if resignation were necessary’. Obviously an occupational hazard that one must plan for. Walker followed Amery’s advice and went into the insurance business, soon forming a partnership with the future MP for Taunton, the crook Edward du Cann, who not only knew my grandfather (who told me that du Cann was a crook years before du Cann was exposed as, er, a crook and a very big one too), but just before the Waterhouse Inquiry du Cann made a lot of loud noises about ‘having a lot to tell’ and how he ‘was going to tell it’. Du Cann never did reveal all, but he did become very affluent after threatening to tell all, despite being virtually bankrupt at the time when he threatened to land everyone in it. See previous posts.

Tory Party: Do you not think that it would have been a great deal easier to have made friends with Brown and me, rather than pay off all the worthless turds who blackmailed you over us? It would have been much easier, far cheaper and you wouldn’t now have this blog to put up with. We didn’t want money, not being Edward du Cann ourselves; we’d never have voted for you, but we would have been quite happy with appropriate action against Dafydd et al.

 

Peter Walker also invested in property companies and formed a City partnership with Jim Slater, Slater Walker Securities, a scam of an asset stripping vehicle which collapsed in scandal in the early 1970s. Walker worked on JFK’s Primary election campaign team and was PPS to Selwyn Lloyd – who was Chancellor of the Exchequer under Macmillan and a few other things as well – when Lloyd was Lord Privy Seal, 1963-64. Walker and Lloyd remained close friends – Lloyd was godfather to one of Walker’s sons.

In 1965 Walker organised Heath’s leadership campaign.

After retirement from politics, Walker became Chairman of Kleinwort Benson and Thornton and Co. Other business positions Walker held included: Chairman of Allianz Insurance plc; Vice Chairman of Dresdner Kleinwort; non-executive Director of ITM Power plc; Director of Rothschilds; Tate and Lyle; Dalgety and British Gas.

Walker was Chair of the Carlton Club.

Walker was a ‘determined supporter’ of the hospice movement, becoming a Patron of St Richard’s Hospice in Worcester when it was founded in 1984. He campaigned determinedly for greater NHS support for St Richard’s and the wider hospice movement. During a House of Lords debate in 2000, Lord Walker stated: “Anyone who visits hospices and meets the volunteers – the people running them and guiding them – will recognise their unique spiritual and compassionate contribution to the health service.” For some reason the hospice movement is dominated by the paedophiles’ friends, in north Wales and elsewhere as well. The contributions to the Lord debate in 2000 illustrated this. See post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.

 

So what job did Peter Walker bag once he had co-ordinated the defeat of the NUM using his knowledge of Dafydd and Wrongdoing in High Places? He was appointed Secretary of State for Wales of course, where he remained overseeing the charnel house until May 1990 (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’). In 1992, just after the five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal died in the Brighton firebomb (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’), Walker picked up his peerage.

 

So that covers a few of the events and people involved during the time when Thatcher inflicted the most dreadful suffering, particularly on south Wales, yet neither Hywel Francis nor the Windbag barked. Hywel’s reward came in 2001 when he became the Labour MP for Aberavon. The long-term deal was completed in 2015 when the Windbag’s son, the husband of the PM of Denmark, returned from his decades of living abroad and succeeded Hywel in his safe Labour seat, Windbag junior being Committed To The People Of Aberavon. The idea was for Windbag junior to be in place in time to sit in the Cabinet which Ed Miliband was going to form when Ed became PM in May 2015. There was just one problem.

Poor Ed, he was from an impeccable pedigree himself, what with Uncle Harry being a Top Doctor, a paid up member of the Socialist Health Association and working with folk at Guy’s and Tommy’s who had concealed Dafydd’s wrongdoing and dad Ralph being a Marxist academic who also had all the shit on Dafydd and the gang (see previous posts)…

 

I have discussed in previous posts how many of the kids forced into sex work by Dafydd’s gang were the young men who died of HIV/AIDS in the late 1980s/90s. It was known that the kids were being infected with STIs by their abusers, even when they were ‘in care’; Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon died of an AIDS related condition in the early 1990s, by which time he had infected other people. Matt Arnold, the Headmaster of Bryn Estyn died in 1994 from an ‘unspecified blood disease’. My post ‘Include Me Out’ describes how basic medical care and humanity was unavailable to the prisoners in the medical wing of Risley Remand Centre – most of whom were Dafydd’s patients or kids in care – yet one thing that was prioritised was a visiting pox doctor. That will not have been out of any concern for the inmates; it was because the gang didn’t want to get infected themselves…

By the late 1980s, there were so many rent boys in London dying of AIDS – many of whom had been trafficked there by Dafydd’s gang – that in order to ensure that the stories of those dying young men never reached the ears of the wrong people, associates of Dafydd’s gang in London set up a hospice for terminally ill AIDS patients. The Labour MP Peter Shore and the Tory Ken Clarke, then in the DoH, worked together to make funding available (see posts ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’). The young men died in the care of people who knew exactly how they had ended up working as rent boys by the age of 17 and those people ensured that the scandal was kept under wraps. Of course, the Top Doctors knew how those boys had become infected and they kept schtum as well.

A recent issue of the ‘London Review Of Books’ discussed the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 1980s. It was remembered that the number of AIDS cases began to have a real impact in 1985 and after that the numbers just went ever upwards. So those boys were infected from the mid-1970s onwards, under Callaghan and then Thatcher’s Gov’ts… The LRB article mentioned a few familiar names in terms of the Top Doctors who were the Experts re HIV/AIDS eg. Michael Adler at the Middlesex Hospital (Gwynne the lobotomist’s alma mater who protected Gwynne until the day that he died) and Tony Pinching at St Mary’s. To whom is Michael Adler married? One Baroness Margaret Jay, Jim Callaghan’s daughter. Callaghan was instrumental in enabling George Thomas’s mate Leo Abse to rewrite legislation relating to children in care which resulted in hundreds of them being sent to children’s homes in north Wales (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’). Margaret Jay married Adler in 1994; Adler had been Chair of the National AIDS Trust when Jay was its Director. When Miranda became PM, he appointed Jay as Health Minister and Minister for Wimmin. I can only wonder if Miranda did that as a two fingers up to any of Dafydd’s victims who dared to still be alive. In 1997, Tony Francis, Dafydd et al were pushing out all the boats in their attempts to have me banged up in a secure hospital on the grounds of my extreme dangerousness.

In 1996, Miranda and Cherie’s friend and colleague, Michael Beloff QC, served as the legal adviser to Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council (as well as of the North Wales Police) and ensured that the Jillings Report regarding the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974, was completely suppressed and pulped. See previous posts eg. ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake’.

If the Baroness and/or Miranda would like to leave a comment on this blog, I’d be delighted to hear from them.

 

Top Doctors and Angels are not the only people who knew what was happening but kept quiet. Some sociologists did as well. One sociologist who definitely knew – who died in 2012 – was Tony Coxon. I met Tony Coxon a few times at conferences and he was very entertaining but he knew about Dafydd and the related gangs.

Tony Coxon became famous for developing the British Household Panel Survey after he was appointed as the first Director of the ESRC Research Centre, now the Institute for Social and Economic Research, at the University of Essex, in 1989.

Tony was born in Sale, Cheshire and educated at the King’s School, Canterbury and Cheadle Hulme school, Stockport. In his teens Tony Coxon decided that he had a vocation to the priesthood. Initially he trained at the College of the Resurrection, Mirfield, West Yorkshire, from where he was supported as an undergraduate at Leeds University studying sociology and philosophy. However he did not return to Mirfield and after graduation at Leeds continued his studies to complete his doctorate.

There have been allegations of abuse at Mirfield and of course the Leeds area per se was Jimmy Savile’s domain. Ed Miliband’s dad Ralph was Prof of Sociology at Leeds University in the 1970s.

Coxon left the church completely for a time, although he did retain a  commitment to Christian socialism which remained with him for the rest of his life. Coxon was a member of the Third Order of Anglican Franciscans. He was a pacifist and a conscientious objector during national service;  a  member of CND, the Committee of 100 and the Independent Labour Party.

Following lectureships at Leeds (1964-69) and Edinburgh (1969-75) universities, Tony Coxon then joined what was University College Cardiff, becoming Professor in 1975. His research interests included religion, occupations, social networks and male sexuality. He was the Principal Investigator of Project SIGMA, a major longitudinal study of gay men and HIV/Aids which informed Gov’t and World Health Organisation policies at the height of the AIDS epidemic. Some of Coxon’s research involved the study of gay men’s diaries.

Tony Coxon knew exactly what was happening; being based in Cardiff he’ll have known about Dafydd et al and he knew that kids in care were being forced into sex work. He could have named many celebs and ‘VIPs’, including politicians, who were abusing kids. But like everyone else, it was a case of I Know Nuzzing…

In retirement, Tony Coxon returned to Cardiff as a visiting and then honorary Professor.

At Leeds, Tony married and subsequently had three children. He later came out as gay in 1978. In 2005, Tony underwent a civil partnership with Philip Hawkins.

Phil Hawkins is also involved in HIV/AIDS work and one look at Phil’s CV leaves one in no doubt that like Tony Coxon, Phil knew what was going on as well:

While Hywel Francis, the Windbag and others were not barking as Thatch took a wrecking ball to Wales, Thatch’s favourite Council leader, Sir Paul Beresford, led the flagship Tory-led Council, Wandsworth, in south London. St George’s Hospital Medical School relocated to Tooting in a number of stages during the latter half of the 1970s. The elitist grandiosities employed at St George’s still hadn’t recovered from the trauma of being uprooted from their natural habitat in Knightsbridge and replanted in Tooting when I began working at St George’s in 1989. In previous posts I explained how the relocation of St George’s was undertaken as part of Harold Wilson’s Gov’ts ‘democratisation’ of medicine and medical education, the idea being to put the grand new hospital and medical school where the common people were ie. Tooting. It was certainly very convenient for the long standing paedophile ring that had operated in Wandsworth and the surrounding area; the Top Docs of St George’s with their Royal and celeb connections joined in the fun (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’). No-one could touch them, what with them being mates with Top Doctors To The Royals and the Duke of Westminster’s family having an historical link with St George’s…

My documents show that Lucille, Dafydd and Tony Francis had a direct line to St George’s/Springfield Hospitals and to Wandsworth Social Services. Top Docs at St George’s and Springfield admitted in writing that they knew that Dafydd – and they suspected Tony Francis as well – was sexually involved with patients; yet they were nonetheless happy to co-operate with the gang in north Wales. Messages were sent back and forth with phone numbers and bleeps which people very helpfully gave each other to discuss the danger that was me…

Donald Naismith, the Director of Education for Wandsworth, was known to be an active paedophile. See previous posts. Children targeted by the south London ring disappeared and were found dead.

This was Thatch’s exemplar of a Council. Paul Beresford became a Wandsworth Councillor in 1978 and was Council Leader, 1983-92. Bereford was a dentist, but a very posh one; he had a Park Lane practice. I read the other day that most of Thatcher’s Cabinet were patients of Beresford’s.

Beresford was knighted in the 1990 New Year Honours ‘for political and public service’. In 1986, while Beresford led Wandsworth, Oliver Brooke, the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s, was imprisoned for the possession of child porn (see previous posts eg. ‘Oliver!’). Ollie was a key player in a pan-European paedophile ring with connections to Dafydd et al in north Wales. By the time that Beresford bagged his K, Gwynedd Health Authority and Gwynedd Social Services, with the help of a great many people including Andrew Park, the corrupt Welsh Office lawyer, were busy taking me to the High Court on the basis of the perjury of Dafydd’s gang and were making plans to have me banged up (see posts eg. ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’ and ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’).

In the General Election of 1992, Paul Beresford was elected as the Tory MP for Croydon Central, where he succeeded John Moore, who had been one of the Health Secretaries who concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the linked gangs, including the one at Wandsworth (see previous posts). Croydon had its own horror story in the shape of Warlingham Park Hospital, where patients were battered and raped by the staff and found dead in suspicious circumstances, including a family of patients who ended up being sent to live in Bethesda by a group of crooked Top Doctors and lawyers who swindled them out of their inheritance (see post ‘A Trade In People – Between London and North Wales’).

Beresford was elected as the Tory MP for Mole Valley in 1997, succeeding Kenneth Baker. Mole Valley is a Surrey constituency. Patient F from Bethesda, who was framed, imprisoned and fleeced of his property and money, then denied access to his child, by Dafydd’s gang after F found out that boys in the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor were being mistreated by their social workers and challenged the social workers and told other people what was going on, came from Surrey. The father of F’s ex-wife particularly hated F and I have been told was involved with the wrecking of F’s life by Dafydd et al. F’s ex father-in-law was a dentist. A very wealthy Tory supporting dentist. From Surrey. From 1996 onward, Tony Francis et al were making strenuous efforts to have F imprisoned again, once more on the basis of perjury with a bit of help from corrupt police officers. See previous posts.

The London Boroughs of Merton and Mitcham are also served by St George’s Hospital Medical School. The MP for Mitcham and Morden, 1982-97, was another ally of Thatch, Angela Rumbold.

Rumbold was was a graduate of King’s College, London. She qualified as a barrister but never practised. Rumbold’s father was the physicist Prof Harry Jones, who was Pro-Rector of Imperial College until his death. Harry was one of those old fossils at Imperial who will have known the other old fossils Lord Brian Flowers and Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies (see previous posts), who came from Wales and used their academic and political muscle to conceal the crimes of Dafydd et al as well as the wrongdoing of the Top Docs in London University. I have not yet researched Harry Jones, so I don’t know what his origins were.

Angela married solicitor John Rumbold. After raising her children Angela worked as the Chief Executive for The National Association for the Welfare of Children in Hospital. Following that post, between 1974 and 1983, Angela Rumbold served as a Councillor in Kingston-upon-Thames and became Deputy Leader of Kingston-upon-Thames Council. While sitting as a Councillor, Angela Chaired the Council of LEAs, 1979-80 and served as a member of the doctors’ and dentists’ pay review body. The late Professor Huw Bentall, a surgeon at Hammersmith Hospital/Royal Postgraduate Medical School, virtually ran Kingston-upon-Thames, as a result of his ownership of Bentall’s, the upmarket department store in the town. Huw Bentall was involved in dishonesty with regard to ‘research’ and the ‘success’ of interventions at Hammersmith (see post ‘Interesting Facts’). Hammersmith became part of Imperial College in the 1990s, Brian Flowers oversaw the merger.

Huw Bentall had links with north Wales which were strengthened in the 1980s when his son Richard Bentall married the daughter of Eifion Jones, the Dean of Science at UCNW, when Richard was doing his PhD in psychology at UCNW. Richard Bentall is a clinical psychologist who knew all about Dafydd and the gang and he subsequently worked as an academic at UCNW (Bangor University). Richard Bentall has become quite famous and has made a name for himself as a ‘radical psychologist’. He has held Chairs at Bangor, Liverpool and Manchester. Richard’s wife – now his ex-wife – did a degree in Plant Biology at UCNW. The Plant Biology Dept at UCNW was full of people who knew about the trafficking ring, because one of the lecturers in that Dept, Chris Wood, was married to Dr D.G.E. Wood, who was facilitating the trafficking ring. Adrian Bell was one of the lecturers who was mates with D.G.E. Wood. Adrian did his first degree at Kingston-upon-Thames Poly…

During the 1990s, St George’s merged with Kingston-upon-Thames University, which surprised me when I remembered how ludicrously snooty the staff at St George’s were; first they relocate to Tooting, then they merge with an ex-poly… The merger happened when the investigations into a possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Chester were underway. Perhaps Richard Bentall or Adrian Bell could tell us how the plebs at Kingston managed to get hitched to the Snobbiest Top Doctors On The Planet.

When Rumbold was a Kingston Councillor, she also worked at the GLC as a researcher and at Conservative Central Office. Both organisations which concealed the organised abuse of vulnerable people, in north Wales and elsewhere.

Rumbold was Chairman of the Teachers’ Negotiating Committee until it was closed down by Act of Parliament.

Angela Rumbold served as: PPS to the Secretary of State for Transport; as Under Secretary at the Dept of the Environment; Minister of State for Education and Minister of State at the Home Office. In 1992 Rumbold became the Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party. The year that the five witnesses to the crime in north Wales were killed by the Brighton firebomb…Rumbold remained Deputy Chairman of the Party until 1995. She was then Vice Chairman of the Tory Party, 1995-97.

Rumbold’s erstwhile junior colleague Robert Key recalled her advice, delivered with “a wicked smile and that dusky chuckle”, that anger and revenge are very important motives in politics. The deaths from the firebomb didn’t do Angela any harm, she became a Dame in 1992. I hope that she enjoyed an extra-long dusky chuckle. Dame Angela probably had a few more dusky chuckles in the following years, because a few people who had managed to survive the firebomb were subsequently found dead. A sense of humour like that is useful if one is a Minister in an endemically corrupt Home Office which is colluding with organised crime.

In 1994, during the “Back to Basics” row, Rumbold had to resign from a job with a lobbying firm amid a row over the firm’s role in helping to win a £1 billion contract for the construction of a Channel Tunnel rail link station. Was that perhaps one of the firms with a terrible safety record which oversaw the deaths of a few construction workers? Angela will have been chuckling duskily again.

After leaving the Commons in 1997, Rumbold duskily chuckled her way back to many of her voluntary activities. She was Chair of the Governers of both Danes Hill School in Oxshott and Surbiton High School in Kingston-upon-Thames as well as Vice-Chair of the Governing Body of Tolworth Girls’ School, a large secondary modern, also in Kingston upon Thames.

Rumbold was Chair of Governors of Wimbledon High School, a school attended by many of the offspring of the Top Docs and other senior staff of St George’s and a Governor of More House Girls’ School in Knightsbridge. She was Chair of the Court of Governors of Mill Hill School for nine years and set up its Pre-prep School Grimsdells. Angela also Chaired the Minerva Fund for replacement of bursaries in Girls’ Day School Trust schools after the closure of the Assisted Places Scheme.

Rumbold was co-Chair of the Association of Governing Bodies of Independent Schools and Chair of the Finance and General Purposes Committee of the Independent Schools Council. She was a member of the Trust and Governing Council of the United Church Schools Trust and Chair of the United Learning Trust, an Anglican charidee and the largest sponsor of academies in the country. Angela will have had a good dusky chuckle at the complaints of clergy molesting children.

In 1987 I was friendly with someone who’s mum taught at an independent girls’ school which was attended by Angela Rumbold’s children. My friend’s mum loathed Angela Rumbold for her hypocrisy, because while Rumbold regularly lectured the parents of the nation’s children on the necessity of being involved in their schooling, Rumbold never, ever went to parents’ evenings, let alone school plays etc. It was after Rumbold knew the mum of someone who knew me – and who knew what Dafydd et al had done and continued to do to me – that Rumbold was transferred to a job as a Minister at the Home Office.

John Major appointed Rumbold as a Home Office Minister when he became PM – just as I was being forced out of my job at St George’s, when St George’s were facilitating the trafficking ring in south London which was linked to Dafydd et al in north Wales. At the same time, Tony and Sadie Francis made yet another bid to have me imprisoned, although Hempsons, the MDU solicitors, knew that they did not have the evidence for their allegations against me. Hempsons also knew that I had repeatedly reported the serious abuse of patients in north Wales. I had a long telephone conversation with Ann Ball, the Francis’s solicitor from Hempsons and I discussed the abuse of psych patients in north Wales with Ann Ball in detail. Weeks later Ann tried to have me imprisoned on the instructions of the Drs Francis. Ann sat opposite me in the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand, knowing that I had witnessed the very, very serious abuse of patients and had written to just about every authority that I could. Years later I discovered that Ann had advised the Drs Francis not to proceed with their litigation against me. They ignored her advice and Ann represented them nonetheless.

Ann Ball. Hempsons. The MDU. These people are lawyers.

The icing on the cake? At that time, the North Wales Police were mid-way through their investigation into a possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. They concluded that there was no evidence of any such ring.

Former kids in care and psych patients in north Wales were being found dead constantly.

 

This was the Home Secretary at the time; the man who preceded Sir Paul Beresford as the MP for the constituency which housed so many people known to Patient F’s former father-in-law:

In the aftermath of a dusky chuckle following a bout of anger and revenge:

Angela Rumbold BBC.jpg

 

My friend’s mum who taught Rumbold’s children also taught Jimmy Tarbuck’s daughter; I presume that would have been Lisa Tarbuck. In contrast to the Rumbolds, I was told that Mr and Mrs Tarbuck were quite devoted to their daughter and turned up at every school do concerning or involving her.

Rumbold was elected for Mitcham and Morden in 1982 when the sitting Labour MP, Bruce Douglas-Mann, defected to the SDP. Dr Death knew what was going on at St George’s and in north Wales. The whole Gang Of Four knew about Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’). Douglas-Mann resigned as an MP and sought re-election under the SDP banner. The resulting by-election was held during the Falklands War and Rumbold won.

Bruce Douglas-Mann was MP for Mitcham and Morden, 1970-82. Douglas-Mann was born at Bexhill, Sussex, the son of a solicitor, Leslie John Douglas-Mann. Bruce Douglas-Mann was educated Upper Canada College, Toronto, Canada and following national service in the Royal Navy, read PPE at Jesus College, Oxford, 1948-51. Jesus College, Oxford has strong Welsh links and many paedophiles’ friends in Wales studied there, including the corrupt judge Huw Daniel (see previous posts). Douglas-Mann qualified as a solicitor in 1954 and served as a Councillor on Kensington Borough Council, 1962-65 and on the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea from 1964. As a solicitor Douglas-Mann specialised in trade union law and claims over industrial accidents and injuries. He also worked on obscenity cases and briefed barrister John Mortimer on the film ‘Last Tango in Paris’. Douglas-Mann was Chairman of the Society of Labour Lawyers, 1974- 80, a great many of whom did many kind turns for people involved with organised abuse (see previous posts). 

Douglas-Mann was elected MP for Kensington North in 1970, before being elected for Mitcham and Morden in Feb 1974. Douglas-Mann spoke out on the plight of refugees. In 1971, in the East Bengal (now Bangladesh) refugee crisis, he said it was “the worst tragedy the world had known” and the following year, when Idi Amin ordered the expulsion of Asians from Uganda, Douglas-Mann said that returning them would be “like sending Jews back to Hitler in the 1930s”. Douglas-Mann was involved in housing case work as a solicitor and served as Chairman of the Parliamentary Party’s Housing and Construction group throughout the second Wilson and Callaghan Gov’ts. Douglas-Mann worked strenuously with housing associations and knew inside-out the ‘renting and enforcing hell hole’ of North Kensington. Although he was elected for North Kensington in 1970, he was made Minister of State for Housing only in 1974. Following Norman St John Stevas’s introduction of the Parliamentary Select Committees in 1979, Douglas-Mann served on the PSC concerning the environment, because housing was part of its remit.

A number of politicians and lawyers who facilitated or concealed abuse were involved with housing.

 

One of the Tory Councillors for the London Borough of Merton, a neighbouring Council to Mitcham which was also served by St George’s Hospital while the trafficking ring were busy within, did very well for herself. One Theresa May. Theresa was a Merton Councillor, 1986-94, where she was Chairman of Education (1988–90) and Deputy Group Leader and Housing Spokesman (1992–94).

Do you remember a man called Donald Naismith Theresa?

Best of luck with your Blitz on the UK’s ‘epidemic’ of Mental Health Problems Theresa! Somehow I don’t think that you’re going to have much success on that front…The mental health system is still run by those Top Docs at St George’s/Springfield who colluded with a pan-European trafficking ring. They’re on the Gov’t advisory bodies and every committee that there is. They are the Directors of Services, both in the NHS and in the private sector. They are Professors of Medicine who provide the Expert Opinions and the Independent Reports. They sit on the Boards of the drug companies and they run NICE. They tell you what to do and you cannot stop them can you, because they know what you ignored when you were a Councillor in Merton…

 

Thatch’s stated desire to destroy the union movement but leaving those unions which served the most powerful professions who were abusing their positions untouched was far from the only irony of her regime. Thatch stated in the 1980s that ‘we must get rid of the social worker’. Someone will have explained to her that if she did that the supply of kiddies for the Westminster Paedophile Ring would come to a halt. More importantly, if social workers felt like biting back there could be some very embarrassing leaks. I used to wonder why, during the late 1980s and the 1990s, so many MPs had previously been social workers. I know the answer to that now. MPs in a previous era were aristocrats and gentlemen. Then under Thatch the House filled up with businessmen, often rather spiv-like ones. Under Miranda the place became choc full of ‘radical lawyers’ and social workers…

One of the many paradoxes of Thatcher’s administrations, which had been sold to the public on their ability to apply the principles of a grocer’s shop and housewifely thrift to the national economy, was that far from implementing Tory Cuts, public spending rocketed. The 1980s punch-up over rate capping was bugger all to do with reigning in public spending, it was about aiming fire at the Labour Councils. It was Heseltine, in his role as Thatch’s first Environment Secretary, who targeted spending by Councils. I have recently accessed data detailing the spending of Councils during the early 1980s. So details of the spending of those Councils was available to Thatcher’s Gov’t and to Heseltine. Didn’t Tarzan notice how much money certain Councils were spending sending children in care to children’s homes and residential schools in north Wales? Millions and millions and millions of pounds. Bit odd don’t you think Tarzan? Yet you never said a word about it in public, even during the great Rate Capping Rows. Furthermore, it was the Loony Left Councils whom you hated who were the culprits.

The Tories 1983 manifesto committed to abolish the GLC and the Greater Manchester, Merseyside, West Midlands, Tyne and Wear Councils. On the basis of their ‘profligacy’. Not on the basis that they were all spending a bomb filling the bank accounts of a gang of paedophiles in particular. They certainly were profligate but that profligacy would have ended overnight if the Tories themselves had not been concealing what was happening in north Wales. Two other profligate Councils which the Tories identified in the early 1980s were West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire. Anyone for organised abuse with Thatcher’s mate Jimmy Savile at the centre of it?

 

When young black men rioted in the inner cities in the early 1980s, Thatch made some wonderful comments about their ‘animal spirits’. There were certainly plenty of animals about, but they weren’t rioting in the streets.

As the Mental Health Crisis deepens, Theresa has announced the appointment of a Minister for Suicide Prevention. Someone might as well give Princess Middleton the job. She knows as little about it all as the Gov’t and she’s been to exactly the same Summits and Conferences as the Gov’t Ministers, but at least Princess Middleton can go along and have a cup of char with the Empowered Service Users and it’ll be a nice morning for them; they won’t hate her like they do politicians who have for years systematically ignored their complaints of abuse at the hands of the mental health services. It’s Stigma that is the problem! Particularly with Men Who Bottle It Up And Won’t Share.

There was a suicidal patient at the Hergest Unit – a man – who had begged and begged For Help and for someone to Talk to him about how bad he was feeling. No staff would Talk to him; I watched them actively walk away. After God knows how long of this, he staged a dirty protest in his room. It was grim, he covered himself and the walls with turds. As the staff screamed at him ‘why have you done this?’ he yelled back ‘because none of you will talk to me, so I have done something which will force you to talk to me.’ Tony Francis finally paid him a visit and told the patient that if he ever did that again, the NHS would refuse to treat him. That man has spent the last 15 years repeatedly trying to kill himself. Some five years ago, his lawyer finally extracted his records from the NHS. He showed them to me. Back in the early 1990s, Tony Francis had written the most extraordinary letters about him to other Top Docs – this was before the Dirty Protest – stating that he would never treat this patient, no matter how ill he became and no-one would ever be able to make Francis treat him because Francis was exercising his Clinical Freedom. Furthermore, Francis strongly recommended that no other Top Doc should treat this man. Indeed they didn’t, the patient ended up going abroad for treatment. The man in question was well-known in the climbing fraternity of north Wales and was actually very well-liked. He had been in Gwynedd since 1979. Before that he had worked as a trainee social worker and then as a youth leader in north London. He knew about the abuse of kids and vulnerable people in Islington and Haringey and he knew Little Nell Hodge and the Radical Lawyers. He had made the mistake of telling people in north Wales that he had witnessed the lot.

‘Let’s Share Shall We? You Share First.’

A UK network facilitating organised abuse involving every Top Doctors’ body and social services organisation in Great Britain. The Final Solution was to deny whistleblowers all healthcare for all conditions. It happened to me and it happened to the man who witnessed the crimes of Little Nell et al. Everyone knew that it was happening. No-one warned us. We were positively encouraged to Share with Top Doctors who wanted us dead. When we flatly refused to see loonies like Dafydd, Top Docs like Tony Francis were wheeled out and whenever we raised our concerns, we would be reassured by everyone that Tony was just having a bad day, or he was in pain or ill and he didn’t mean to have us arrested/put us in danger at all.

Now just let’s see how Theresa will provide a mental health service with that lot in charge.

 

It was reported yesterday that four Lords who are all former N Ireland Secretaries of State have raised concerns about the ‘waste of money’ that will be happen if historical prosecutions of offenders in N Ireland go ahead. The Concerned Lords are Lords Hain, Reid, Murphy and King.

Lord King has a great many questions to answer, as does Lord Murphy. Lord King, is your Lady wife Jane still making one sausage roll last all evening lest she ends up looking like a Somerset farmer’s wife, as was her fear at the Tory party buffets in Bridgwater in the 1970s? I was only 10 yrs old at the time but even I thought that it was bloody ridiculous. Furthermore, will you tell us the truth about the young Irish students who were jailed in 1988 for not actually doing anything to you at all, but who just happened to be camping across the fields from your palatial residence? Planning to murder you? There was no evidence. The mum of one of those jailed was a psychiatrist, so will have known about the gore, about shoot to kill and probably about Kincora as well. Why have ALL references to the trial and convictions of those young people disappeared from the internet?

Tom King – a mediocrity at Thatch’s side throughout the antics of Dafydd and the Paedophiles…

Lord Murphy is a Bachelor who has not been blessed with children. Lord Murphy was far too busy with matters theological, being a devout Roman Catholic. It was Lord Murphy who took receipt of the Waterhouse Report, in his capacity as Secretary of State for Wales and told the world that he was very glad that the abuse of children in north Wales had now been transparently extensively investigated and that there Has Been No Cover-Up.

I too have reservations about historical prosecutions, but if we’re talking waste of money, I’ll remind Lord Murphy the Bachelor that the Waterhouse Inquiry cost £13 million quid. Then there were the millions which Councils paid to send kids to children’s homes in north Wales and the salaries of all those highly paid professional people who facilitated the trafficking gang in north Wales and elsewhere…the cost of keeping the victims in prisons and in hospitals… Historical prosecutions will be just another drop in the ocean Lord Murphy.

Tell you what King and Murphy, if you’re worried about the dosh – God knows you’ve wasted enough of it screwing everybody over – just agree to one last investment. Excavate the grounds of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, recover the bodies of the victims who are buried out there and date the remains and if possible identify them. Because people were murdered out there as recently as the 1980s. When you’ve done that, no-one will ever be able to do the We Didn’t Know bit. Because you all knew. All of you. We told you what was happening so people then tried to kill us as well.

10,000 documents King and Murphy. I’ve only been blogging on the basis of the Top Docs and lawyers documents so far. I still have all the records compiled by Angels, I have stacks of pharmacy records and there are many, many more names on those records of middle layer people whom  I have not yet had time to research; I will do that though, because by now they will be Top Layer people. There is only one of me doing this, but there are a lot of people reading this blog and they have their own various lines of inquiry and are following up names that I might not have realised the significance of… It’s what I’m putting it all up online for, there is no way that I will be able to extensively research everyone, but in true Group Therapy style, I’m Happy To Share! Particularly because I know how many lives have been ruined by this lot.

 

As far as the animals are concerned, as MP Nigel Evans’s friend said when the excessive behaviour of Nigel and others became public during Nigel’s 2013 trial for serial sexual assaults on young men, it is just Crazy Crazy Westminster. Remind me never to take a job as a Parliamentary researcher, I don’t want to wake up in the middle of the night only to find myself being anally raped by my boss.

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.

PLOT RE ME N PRISON

BROWN N PHONE CALL

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.

For further details of the insanity of John Marek, see post ‘The Bloody State We’re In’. For further details of the sheer bloody callousness of Lesley Who Helps The Mums, see post ‘History Repeats Itself, First As Tragedy, Second As Farce’.

Lesley has long been a supporter of Wrexham Football Club and was elected to the Board of the Wrexham Supporters Trust. Stephen Bagnall used to go to the footie matches in which Wrexham played, where of course Stephen became involved in punch-ups. Keith Fearns, the social worker employed by Gwynedd Social Services, who perjured himself in so many of the court cases in which I was involved, has for many years run the Bangor Ladies Football Team. Keith and the ladies travel all over Europe! Nearly every member of Keith’s Ladies Football Club is a social worker, probation officer or a student social worker.

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:

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

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:

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
Thảm sát Mỹ Lai
My Lai massacre.jpg

 

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.

Fungus’s mistress, Professor Pauline Horne:

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:

John Smith 1992.jpg

 

Robin Cook-close crop.jpg

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.

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.

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

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:

  • Humpty dumpty, The square and Window on Pinterest

 

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:

  • Thomas Keidel | Transforming Finance Transforming Finance

 

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.

Dr Victoria Winckler Threatens To Sue Dr Sally Baker

Earlier today I received by e mail a letter from Harding Evans, Solicitors, Queen’s Chambers, Newport. The e mail explains that a hard copy of the letter has also been sent to me by recorded delivery. Harding Evans are acting for their client Dr Victoria Winckler, the Director of the Bevan Foundation, who maintains that I have made a series of defamatory comments about her on this blog, that these comments have caused Victoria Winckler ‘financial harm’ and furthermore my blog also constitutes harassment of Victoria as defined by the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.

It has not been explained how Victoria has suffered financial harm as a result of my blog; I have been given no evidence of any financial harm which Victoria has incurred either as a result of my comments about her or as a result of the actions of anyone else in response to my blog’s comments. Neither has it been explained how I have harassed Victoria; I have never met Victoria, or communicated with her in any way. Neither has anyone else ever communicated with Victoria on my behalf or at my request.

Harding Evans have sent me quite a long letter in which they have been good enough to repeat the comments which they maintain are defamatory and provide the titles of the blog posts which contain the defamatory comments.

The posts to which Harding Evans refer are ‘The Bloody State We Are In’; ‘He Got On His Bike And Looked For Work’ and ‘Jennifer’s Diary’.

I don’t know how much Victoria is paying Harding Evans but I think that she should probably ask for a refund because even on the first reading of their letter to me, I noticed that they had made some glaring errors. The most glaring one being the statement that I have blogged that Dr D.G.E. Wood was/is an ‘active paedophile’. I have made many allegations about D.G.E. Wood on this blog, but that is not one of them. But then I received an angry message from a friend of Dr Tony Francis months ago who was taking issue with me for stating that Dr Francis was a paedophile. I had not stated that and I still haven’t.

Another Harding Evans comment which is puzzling is their assertion that Dr Winckler ‘is not a Government adviser save that she currently sits on a Ministerial Advisory Group on taxation’. Which sounds rather like a Gov’t adviser to me.

Throughout their analysis of my comments about Victoria, Harding Evans state the various ‘meanings’ of my comments. In virtually all cases the presumed ‘meanings’ were not what I meant and in most cases it is obvious that I did not mean what Harding Evans maintain that I meant. Harding Evans must have worked very hard to draw some of their conclusions regarding the ‘meaning’ of my comments.

Other idiocies are Harding Evans assertion that Victoria is not involved with health and social care. Victoria Winckler has served as a non-executive Director of a NHS Trust in south Wales and Harding Evans state this in their letter. Furthermore, if one takes a brief look at the Bevan Foundation’s website, the phrase ‘Health and Social Care’ can be seen emblazoned on the front page, listed as an interest of the Bevan Foundation, of which Victoria has been the Director since 2002.

In one post I made a comment about the North Wales Abuse Inquiry. Harding Evans tell me that Victoria ‘did not know anything about the North Wales Abuse Inquiry’. Perhaps that is true, in which case one needs to ask why did she not? I would have thought that the Director of a think tank which, among other things, aspires to improve health and social care services should have known everything that there is to know about that Inquiry, being at the time an Inquiry into the biggest child abuse scandal that there had ever been in the UK.

Harding Evans of course object most strongly to my use of the phrase ‘paedophiles’ friend’ in relation to Victoria. They tell me that Victoria does not know any paedophiles and is ‘not friends with any paedophiles’. Harding Evans can’t actually say that with any certainty; what if Victoria does know someone who is a paedophile but she is completely unaware of it? Surely any lawyer worth their fee would have phrased that somewhat differently. I’ll be receiving a letter from Harding Evans next telling me that ‘God does not exist’. Which of course no-one can state as fact because no-one actually knows, not even Richard Dawkins…

I wanna tell you a story. Unlike Victoria, I have to admit that I do know at least one paedophile. As I explained in a comment on this blog recently after someone asked me if it was true that I knew a paedophile and visited him in prison, yes I do and I did. He is a man who was caught in possession of a small number of low category indecent images. He was denounced by ‘The Daily Post’ as a ‘pervert’ and his address was also published by that newspaper, while their online edition showed footage of ‘paedophile hunters’ pursuing another ‘pervert’ who had recently been released from prison down the road through Bangor. He was imprisoned and is now out of prison.

I got to know this man because he lived in a cottage owned by two friends of mine and he helped on their farm. I had no idea at the time that my friends were, in their capacity as members of their Methodist Church, supporting this man who had previously admitted that he had a problem, had begged for help but found that no therapist or counsellor would touch him. He was alone, friendless and terrified. My friends believe that no human being should ever be in that situation, so they befriended him. I got to know him well but I had no idea that he was a paedophile. Until he was arrested after three images were found on his computer.

My friends maintained contact with him after he was jailed and visited him regularly. They were unable to get over to the prison for one of their planned visits, so they asked me if I would go instead and I said yes. I even had a cup of tea with him and bought him a bar of chocolate from the prisoners’ canteen Harding Evans. After he was released from prison, he was penniless and destitute and had received no therapy in prison. So my friends took him in again. I continued to see him when I visited my friends. In total, I have had two Christmas dinners with him, spent a Boxing Day with him, celebrated a New Year’s Eve with him, had numerous lunches and dinners with him and on one occasion he even mowed my lawn for me and afterwards I made him lunch and then tea. How about that then Victoria?

I haven’t seen this man for some while now because I have left Wales, but I understand that he has rebuilt his life and is in work. Which would not have happened had my friends and their Church not stepped in. He was discharged from Stafford Prison with a one way rail ticket to my friends’ house and I think £30 in cash. He was then denied benefits, although the benefits agency had made a mistake – he was eligible for benefits; it took many months to resolve. Then a community social enterprise which occupied the neighbouring farm sent him a solicitor’s letter stating that the Paedophile Shall Not Pass along their farm track. Which was also the farm track to the cottage on my friends’ farm where he lived. So although he had accommodation he couldn’t use the track to get to it. He had to go in and out of his house across the fields. My friends were not even allowed to drive him down the track in their vehicles. Had he not taken a walking tour across the fields and instead moved out, he would have been recalled to prison, because by then, the address on my friends’ farm was built into his probation conditions. So my friends then became involved in a legal battle for some weeks until he was finally given permission to use his own right of way.

As for my biggest ‘challenge’ regarding socialising with this man, it was that his dad had worked as an Angel at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh for decades and I had been asked by my friends never to discuss what had happened to me in that institution in front of him…

This man had never touched a child in his life Victoria and he absolutely begged for help because he wanted to change his behaviour. There was no help, none at all. I will never feel that I have to send a solicitor’s letter to someone stressing that ooh no I don’t know any paedophiles. I am proud that my friends supported him and gathered together a circle of other people to support him as well. What were we all supposed to do, demand his knackers on a platter?

It is, I would have thought, obvious from this blog that my use of the phrase ‘paedophiles’ friends’ refers to the numerous people who knew about the abuse of children – although not necessarily in detail – and either pretended that they didn’t know, or in the cases of D.G.E. Wood and others, actually facilitated the activities of those involved. I can understand why Victoria Winckler may not have appreciated me using this phrase about her, but my point in those blog posts was that Victoria has been employed in at least one organisation – Mid-Glamorgan County Council – when an active paedophile was also employed by that Council, namely John Owen. Harding Evans sniffily told me that of course Victoria didn’t know about John Owen, his offending was not brought to the attention of the authorities at Mid-Glamorgan County Council. That is not what some other employees of Mid-Glamorgan County Council said when John Owen was charged…

I have not responded in detail to Harding Evans yet, but I will of course be telling them what I have always made very clear on this blog – that if someone believes that I have published something which is untrue, I will be more than happy to amend it. I don’t know why Victoria simply didn’t e mail me herself and ask me to do this. I have never yet written ‘sod off I’ll publish what I want’ to anyone who has contacted me pointing out errors of fact and asked for them to be amended.

What Harding Evans have told me in their letter however is that Victoria wants damages from me and that they are currently ‘assessing quantum’ with her. I have been told that I have by 4 pm 17 Oct 2018 to comply with their demands or they will have ‘no option but to apply to court for immediate injunctive relief, damages and legal costs’, ‘without further notice to you’. Harding Evans have also sent me a splendid little pre-prepared statement for me to sign, in which I confess to having defamed Victoria and agree to pay her any damages that are ‘negotiated’.

Even the North Wales Police never wrote a confession for me and ordered me to sign on the dotted line.

My biggest concern re the letter from Harding Evans is not the numerous inaccuracies or the threats within, it is the means by which they accessed my address. It is not the address where I live or indeed have ever lived; it is the address of a friend’s house which I used as a postal address for some months five years ago or so when I fled north Wales for the first time in the wake of serious threats from the gang. There was I think only one organisation whom I provided with that address to enable them to send me their literature – the Bevan Foundation.

I used to be a member of the Bevan Foundation but I let my subscription lapse because I was just so disappointed at the lack of original thinking coming from that ‘innovative think tank’. When I signed up however, I gave them my friend’s address. So I can only assume that someone at the Bevan Foundation has accessed their database for the personal details of a former member, which they have then given to Harding Evans. I did e mail Harding Evans earlier today to ask how they accessed the address to which they have sent the hard copy of their letter, but I have not yet had a reply. I am not sure where this leaves Harding Evans, Victoria or the Bevan Foundation with regard to data protection legislation.

I am not sure that Victoria Winckler has done herself any favours by instructing Harding Evans to send me that letter.

I do not know who is funding Victoria’s litigation against me, but Harding Evans tells me that the Bevan Foundation is 66k in debt…

 

Readers with a sense of irony: The website of the Bevan Foundation tells us that it

is Wales’ most influential and innovative think tank.  We develop lasting solutions to Wales’ most challenging problems and improve people’s lives. We believe Wales should be a nation of equality, justice and prosperity, a nation where everyone has a decent standard of living, a healthy and fulfilling life, and a voice in the decisions that affect them.  Instead, a shocking number of people’s lives are blighted by inequality, injustice and poverty, with little hope of change.

Our vision is to see equality, justice and prosperity for everyone in Wales, to make ours a nation where everyone has a decent standard of living, a healthy and fulfilled life, and a voice in the decisions that affect them.

Our values are high standards, independence and transparency in everything we do, without fear or favour…

Our ambition is to generate 100 new ideas to change Wales and improve people’s lives. We draw on evidence such as statistics and people’s experiences, to inform our solutions, and we persuade governments, public bodies, the third sector, businesses and individuals to take action.’

So the Director of the Bevan Foundation is going to sue me for damages as a result of some comments that I have published on a blog on which I primarily discuss the neglect and abuse of vulnerable people. Comments which her lawyers have misinterpreted and in some cases comments which I did not actually make.

I am not sure why Victoria thinks it is worth her while pursuing me for damages and legal costs, because I have mentioned on the blog that after the gang wrecked my life all over again some four years ago, I was left destitute. I do have a lovely little cottage to live in, but I don’t own it – or indeed any other property – and I only secured it because Brown and other friends clubbed together and helped me. My income is sufficiently low that I doubt that a Court would order me to pay Victoria very much at all, even if I had said the most terrible things about her and completely ruined her financially. Does Victoria not remember the McLibel trial?

Victoria’s Linked In profile tells us that Victoria is a Commissioner with the Living Wage Commission.

 

I have only ever received one other letter in my life from a solicitor telling me that someone was going to sue me for damages. That was in 1987, when Hempsons, the MDU solicitors, wrote to me and told me that I had ‘harassed’ Dr Tony Francis and he would be suing me for damages. My ‘harassment’ had consisted of letters to Francis and Gwynedd Health Authority regarding my complaints which had not been investigated and these included serious crime on the part of Francis and his colleagues. Documents in my possession demonstrate that at the time, Hempsons knew that Francis was preparing to perjure himself in any court case. All talk of suing me for damages stopped when I engaged a lawyer myself. The communication that I received from Hempsons arrived in the form of a telemessage at about 8 am, when there was no-one at all available to advise me, except of course Brown. It was followed minutes later by a stack of papers delivered by courier, papers which screamed at me all over again that Francis wanted substantial damages from me. Francis and his wife were both in receipt of full time Top Docs salaries. I had no income at all – I had only just finished my MSc and hadn’t yet started my first job – and Brown was living on his PhD studentship. I have been told recently by An Insider that the telemessage and affidavit arrived at 8 am to ensure that I would not be able to access legal advice for several hours, to cause me as much distress as possible.

Well it’s one way of dealing with someone blowing the whistle on serious organised crime.

 

 

A few hours after I received the communication from Harding Evans, I received an e mail from a ‘social justice’ organisation of which I used to be a Trustee, WEN Wales (Women’s Equality Network Wales). I liked my fellow Trustees in WEN, but I felt – like a number of other Trustees did – that WEN wasn’t really going anywhere. There was a great deal of celebrating International Wimmin’s Day and letting off balloons and going to events at the Senedd and listening to Welsh Gov’t Ministers and civil servants taking about equality and justice and the problems of low income wimmin, but as with the Bevan Foundation, one was left with the feeling that this was not going to change anything.

Some Trustees at WEN very obviously lived in terror of upsetting the Welsh Gov’t and were frank about this. They were in receipt of funding from the Welsh Gov’t and I was told that if feathers were ruffled, that would be the end. I thought that people were being over-anxious until one day, WEN received a demand from Jane Hutt that a paragraph should be removed from a Report that WEN had compiled because it showed the Welsh Gov’t in a poor light. It wasn’t libellous, it wasn’t even critical; the offending paragraph simply observed that in the wake of the retirement of a number of female Ministers, the Welsh Gov’t was in danger of losing female voices. I was told by a fellow Trustee that Hutt was well-known for leaning on ‘independent’ organisations in this way. The paragraph was removed.

The e mail that I received today from WEN included their latest news updates. Among them was the announcement that Mark Drakeford had endorsed WEN’s Manifesto for gender equality.

Over the summer, our Manifesto was endorsed by Labour leadership candidate Mark Drakeford AM and we are calling on all candidates from all parties leadership contests to follow suit and commit to an end to gender inequality.

 

This is the Mark Drakeford who has a 31 year old son who just days ago was jailed for eight years for the violent prolonged rape of a young woman; Drakeford junior raped the woman as a ‘punishment’. He was also charged with grooming a 15 year old girl.

 

Karl Marx: ‘The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it.’

I see no signs at all that the Welsh Gov’t, the Bevan Foundation or WEN Wales are going to change anything.

 

I will soon be responding to Harding Evans in detail. Unless Victoria wishes to contact me herself of course to resolve this matter. It’s not as if I bite, even if I do take the piss.

I will keep readers updated…

Yours Truly, Angry Mob

This is a follow up post to my last post ‘I Predict A Riot’, which I hadn’t planned but I am writing because of the information from readers which has come in since I wrote ‘I Predict A Riot’ and added the comments which followed that post. People are very good, I do receive much information but I only have time to include a small part of it on the blog, although it does all get read, stored and put to use regarding background information, future lines of research etc.

My attention has been drawn to something which I have been aware of for a long while, that I have mentioned before on the blog but not maxed out on. That is, the presence of many Top Docs and legal professionals in middle class Jewish families. I have discussed previously how Brown and I first came across Greville Janner named as an abuser on a fascist website, which was so obviously crazed and irrational and banged on about a global conspiracy of Jewish child abusers that we didn’t believe a word of it. Some years ago I was told that terrible things were happening to women and children in the Orthodox Jewish community at Stamford Hill in London. The person who told me that terrible things were happening in that ‘isolated community’ I know had knowledge of Empowered Service Users being abused and has remained silent for years. I used to live near Stamford Hill and enjoyed taking walks through there. I liked the Stamford Hill community and I have no problem at all with communities who wish to ‘isolate themselves’, because very often they are doing that to protect their community, not because they wish to conceal wrongdoing.

My post ‘Dates For Your Diary’ discussed how Vanessa Felz, who was at the time married to a Top Doctor with a direct link to St George’s Hospital Medical School, found herself rocketed to stardom in the summer of 1994, when Dafydd and the Top Docs sent up a distress flare in the midst of the Jillings Inquiry when the Top Docs were desperately in need of good PR, particularly because the Chamberlain-Pearce Scandal had begun to erupt at St George’s. Vanessa and her husband both grew up in professional Jewish families in London.

I don’t believe for one minute that Jewish people are any more likely to abuse or conceal abuse than any other cultural/religious group. The salient issue is that organised abuse has been successfully concealed by professional groups, especially people in law, medicine and politics – particularly those individuals  at the very top of those professions – and those professions are held in high esteem among aspirational Jewish families. Thus names appearing on this blog have included Sir William Asscher, Professor Stuart Stanton, Greville et famille, Leo and Danny Abse etc.

It took an e mail to me from a reader yesterday for me to wake up and realise the worst. My comments after my post ‘I Predict A Riot’ mentioned that Dr Bob Tresman, a man from the Jewish community in London, used to work at the Hergest Unit during the Paedophile Years and was recommended as a Top Doctor for patients who had witnessed the crimes of Dafydd by members of the paedophile gang when those patients had refused to see Dafydd again. I told Bob Tresman myself what I had witnessed Dafydd doing. I also witnessed patient F (see previous posts eg. ‘Killing Floor – I Know Cos I Was There’ and ‘Tan yn Llyn’) who was framed and imprisoned after challenging Gwynedd social workers regarding the abuse of the boys at the Ty’r Felin children’s home, then set up by some predators and fleeced of his property, money and denied access to his child, providing Bob Tresman with full details of all of these events. F also told Tresman about his time in Risley Remand Centre, a time during which I believe that F witnessed a murder in the ‘hospital wing’.

Tresman knew just how bloody bad it had all been, because, in response to F’s frequent comments that he felt that his ‘life had been blessed’ – F remained a remarkably optimistic man in spite of what he had been through – Tresman observed to me that if he had been F, he would have concluded that he had been cursed. F himself used to tell people that when he was in Risley listening to the screams of other patients in the ‘hospital wing’ as they were beaten by the screws, there was a bloke in the cell next to him who was completely psychotic and repeatedly yelled ‘I’m in heaven, I’m in heaven’, to which F yelled back ‘Christ if this is heaven mate I’d hate to see hell’. F related this anecdote to Bob Tresman.

Bob Tresman knew exactly what had happened and was happening to his patients at the hands of Dafydd and the gang.

As I mentioned in my comments which follow my post ‘I Predict A Riot’, Bob Tresman socialised with the paedophile gang and their friends in the Douglas Arms Hotel in Bethesda and was suspended from his job by Gwynedd Health Authority for some months in 1992 or thereabouts, but I never found out why.

Dr Tresman was treated dreadfully by Dr Tony Francis, Francis made no attempt to disguise the fact that he hated Tresman and Dr Tresman did face some appalling anti-semitism from the charmers at the Hergest Unit.

Dr Tresman decided to leave north Wales and return to London during the Waterhouse Inquiry. Just like that.

Tommycooper.jpg

Tommy Cooper was born in Caerphilly, where a statue of him was unveiled in 2008, by Sir Anthony Hopkins, in his capacity as Patron of The Tommy Cooper Society. Hopkins is a man who provided much needed PR for Wales at a time when Dafydd’s gang were getting desperate. After providing this service, the Welsh-born Sir Anthony, who loves Wales and feels Welsher than the most Welsh person on the planet, even Dafydd Iwan, emigrated to California and took US citizenship. See previous posts.

Hannibal Lecter

‘Well Lucille…Have the lambs stopped screaming?’

Tommy Cooper was one of Britain’s best loved Funnymen who entertained the nation until the very end, famously dying on stage. What received lest publicity was that he was a wife-beating piss artist who had a long running affair with a bit on the side.

 

I didn’t know much about Dr Tresman, except that he had been an embryologist before he did a degree in medicine and I think that when he was an embryologist he worked at UCL. He was listed as a Director of Robert Tresman and Associates, a company providing ‘healthcare services’ for some years after he left north Wales.

So there is a Top Doctor who is part of the professional Jewish community in London who knew exactly what was happening in north Wales throughout the 1990s, who listened first hand to numerous witness accounts and who has said nothing in response to the many investigations and inquiries into organised abuse in north Wales/Cheshire.

The vile Dr Giles Harborne, who spent many happy years working with Dafydd et al at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and more recently served as the ‘Chief Of Staff’ for the mental health services in north Wales, in which capacity he insulted and neglected patients and refused to investigate even the most serious of complaints (see previous posts), also seems to be a member of the Jewish community or have very close links with people who are.

When I was doing my MSc at Royal Postgraduate Medical School/Hammersmith Hospital in 1986-87, one of the other students was a dentist called Rosie Szasz, who was a member of the Jewish community in Ealing. I was quite friendly with Rosie and she knew what had happened to me in north Wales. She was also appalled at the staff misconduct at Hammersmith Hospital (see previous posts) but being a healthcare professional herself, Rosie very obviously was not going to challenge anyone about it. Rosie’s dental practice in central London included many HIV/AIDS patients; she was one of the few dentists at the time who was welcoming HIV/AIDS patients. She will have known that many of them were rent boys who had entered that line of work as kids in care.

 

The reason why I have revisited the matter of high profile members of the Jewish community in the professions concealing abuse is that after a reader read my comments about Bob Tresman, I was sent a link to the wiki entry of the political journo Robert Peston, who is the son of the Labour peer Lord Maurice Peston. Lord Peston spent his career as an economist at Queen Mary College, London and advised Labour Gov’ts between the 1960s and 90s. Lord Peston featured in my post ‘I Told You I Was Trouble’ and is close to all those paedophiles’ friends associated with Queen Mary College, including the Top Doctors, who starred in that post.

Here’s another Queen Mary Glamour Puss who has spent a career conducting toadying interviews with politicians whom he knows have done disgusting things, including concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s branch of it:

The Lord Hennessy of Nympsfield or should that be Nymphsfield?
Official portrait of Lord Hennessy of Nympsfield crop 2.jpg

 

When old Hennessey interviewed Dr Death, the nearest he got to ruffling Dr Death’s feathers was to imply that Dr Death must have been heart broken never to have become PM. Dr Death went into Top Doctor mode and told Hennessey to stop that nonsense right now. Hennessey, what you should have said was ‘So Lord Owen, could you explain why when you were William Sargant’s research registrar at Tommy’s you assisted him in those illegal, unethical dangerous experiments which resulted in patient deaths? Furthermore Dr Death, which Top Doctor who was facilitating the paedophile ring in north Wales was it whom you knew personally, Dr D.G.E. Wood or Tony Francis? By the way, Sally Baker has told me to tell you that if she ever encounters you in person, she’ll knee you in the knackers so hard that you won’t be walking for a few hours.’ Before winding up with Hennessey’s obligatory ‘Lord Owen, thank you so much for this fascinating insight into your political career.’

 

Roland Rudd is a man who gets around to all the right places which host all the right people. He went to Millfield School, where he was just slightly older than Duncan Orme. When Orme was at UCNW (Bangor University) with me, Duncan Orme took a sabbatical year as the Students’ Union Welfare Officer, during which time he concealed the wrongdoing of Gwynne the lobotomist, Dr D.G.E. Wood and the rest of the trafficking ring. In return, Duncan Orme’s career in NHS management received a wonderful boost from the very beginning. Duncan eventually became the Financial Director for one of the lethal NHS Trusts in Staffordshire, at the time when the NHS in Staffordshire was colluding with a trafficking ring linked to the one in north Wales and wiping out patients. Duncan has moved to other equally senior NHS posts since then and that stint at the genocidal Trust in Staffordshire recently disappeared from his Linked In profile. See previous posts for the full details of the lies that Duncan told and the harm to students with which he colluded. Furthermore Duncan got a Third and, I am told, failed his accountancy exams. Obviously a career in NHS finance at senior management level was inevitable.

The careers service at UNCW in the mid-1980s was famously crap, it was really, really bad. In the second year, we were all invited to fill in a laughingly Mickey Mouse questionnaire, the answers of which were then fed into a computer programme which spewed out a list of about 15 careers ‘suitable’ for one. It was a real laugh because in the case of the students who knew what they wanted to do, the computer told them what they already knew. My list of 15 consisted of about 10 words saying ‘teacher’ and 5 saying ‘lecturer’. Which was at the time what I wanted to do. I then had a short interview with a rather clueless careers officer who said ‘well I think you’d be suited to teaching or academia and I don’t think that something like the police force would accept you.’ And I thought well I haven’t mentioned going into the police force, why ever would I worry if they accepted me or not? Students who didn’t know what they wanted to do rolled around laughing at the truly bizarre suggestions emanating from the computer eg. ‘quantity surveyor’ for a zoology student who had no interest at all in becoming a quantity surveyor. That was the only careers advice that we received from the careers office.

Then in the third year came the crisis for almost all of us. It was 1984, unemployment was sky high and the jobs in academia that I and so many of the people with whom I was friends had aspired to were obviously not going to be there. Students with other interests were even more worried because there were bugger all jobs in other fields. The only students who weren’t lost and/or in meltdown were those who knew precisely what they wanted to do – eg. one girl knew about a supermarket management training scheme, applied and was accepted – or those who entered school teaching, which was straightforward. But not teaching in north Wales of course, there was much unhappiness and students saying that they were not going to continue to teach after they had qualified…

The distress and anxiety of the students was so acute, that the Plant Biology Dept put on special careers sessions for those of us in their Dept, which were very welcome and very helpful. They helped with CVs, chivvied us along with messages like ‘there are not many jobs, but there are some and someone has to get them’. All other Depts left their students to flail, which was hugely resented. People were writing hundreds of job applications and not even receiving a ‘thank for your application’ in return, it was dire. The careers service at UCNW showed not the slightest concern or interest in the hundreds of students who would be facing unemployment after graduation, at least for some period of time. Neither were there any resources in the careers office. It was the front room of a decaying old house on College Road with a few ancient postgrad prospectuses in there and that was it. The students received no help and no advice.

Except for Duncan Orme, who was given one hell of a helping hand. So who fixed it all up for you then Duncan? Was it D.G.E. Wood, because you certainly did him and the people traffickers a few favours?

It has been suggested to me that the shite careers office in UCNW may not have been an accident. The trafficking ring was causing havoc and a few students like me had stumbled across it. If many more students had been encouraged to remain in north Wales after graduation, they would have done what I did anyway – mixed with local people – and begun to realise that some terrible things were happening. There was a contingent of UNCW students who did stay in north Wales, but they tended to be hippyish students who like the area and were not interested in trying to pursue 1980s style yuppyish careers. Furthermore, they tended to involve themselves with charidees or Radical Causes, all of which were controlled by the paedophile gang. English hippyish people working part-time for Wimmin’s Aid knew exactly how rampant the crime and abuse was, but were never going to say a word because their funding depended upon them keeping quiet and under their Radical Carapace, most of them were rather weak. They just fumed loudly about the Tory Cuts, wet themselves when yet another victim of the gang turned up at their door in desperation and made excuses as to why they couldn’t ‘help’.

 

After rubbing shoulders with the tosser Orme at Millfield, Roland Rudd went to Regent’s Park College, Oxford University, where he was President of the Oxford Union. After graduation, Rudd worked as a policy co-ordinator for Dr Death and the SDP. Rudd was the first SDP President of the Oxford Union.

So Rudd probably knew a biology student who was at UCNW with me, Simon Batty, who was active in the SDP. Batty was very friendly and chatty, but he did live up to his name. He drove a green Reliant Robin and trundled off to national SDP conferences and events in it. Batty became famous after he was beaten up at an NUS conference for being a member of the SDP.

After assisting the Gang Of Four – all of whom were up to their necks in concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’) – Rudd worked as a journo on the ‘Sunday Correspondent’ and the FT, where he palled up with Peston. In 1994, Rudd founded RLM Finsbury, which he sold to WPP plc in 2001, earning an estimated £40 million from doing so. In 2011, RLM Finsbury merged with  Robinson Lerer and Montgomery of New York. Rudd remained as Chairman of the merged firm, which in 2014 was rebranded as Finsbury.

Rudd is Chairman of Business for New Europe and a member of the Centre for European Reform’s Advisory Board. Rudd is now a Labour supporter and is such a big pal of Peter Mandelson that Mandy is godfather to one of Rudd’s children. Mandy spent years concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the barrel of crap in north Wales once he became responsible for trying to make the Windbag electable (see post ‘I Warn You…’). Mandy was a Lambeth Councillor when Lambeth Social Services had a dreadful problem with paedophiles in their children’s homes. The gang in Lambeth was linked to the gang in north Wales and kids in the care of Lambeth were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. Paul Boateng and his wife knew much about the abuse of kids in Lambeth and Janet Boateng was both a social worker and Chair of the Lambeth Social Services Committee when Tyra Henry was murdered in the care of Lambeth (see post ‘A Few More Who Might Be Able To Answer Questions’). Esther Rantzen’s sister was a Lambeth social worker and Rantzen appointed her sister’s manager as Chief Exec of Childline, Valerie, now Baroness Valerie, Howarth. Valerie Howarth subsequently was appointed Chair of CAFCASS (Children and Family Court Advisory Service in 2008. In 2008 CAFCASS across the UK was in meltdown. In 2010, a newly appointed CAFCASS officer in Wrexham who had taken the place of a colleague who had experienced a nervous breakdown told me that no-one could ever perform their job in CAFCASS properly as a result of the organisation being in utter chaos, but Gov’t wouldn’t dare admit it because CAFCASS was responsible for the welfare of children.

 

In 1988 I wrote to Esther Rantzen and told her what was happening in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. I did not receive a reply. People who rang Childline complaining of the abuse of children in north Wales allege that they were ignored as well. Savile was involved with the abuse of kids and psych patients from north Wales.

Paul Boateng was working as a solicitor for Birnberg & Co when Birnberg & Co represented Mary Wynch in her successful litigation against Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’).

‘We didn’t know.’

 

Roland Rudd campaigned for Mandy in Mandy’s Hartlepool constituency in the General Election of 2001, the General Election which was held the year following the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

Rudd was one of the ‘Four Wise Men’ who, in 2007, advised Miranda on life after leaving office. Was it really Rudd who told Miranda to stick his nose deep into the trough provided by some of the world’s most unpleasant regimes? I had always assumed that just came naturally to Miranda.

Rudd has been linked to Ed Balls, Cleggy and Tessa Jowell. Tessa knew a great deal about colluding with organised abuse, having been the daughter of a Top Doctor and the woman who Chaired the Social Services Committee for Camden Borough Council when abuse of kids and vulnerable people in the care of that Council was rampant. Tessa also worked as a psychiatric social worker at the Maudsley with Dafydd’s mates and did a stint as a children’s social worker with Lambeth Social Services. See posts ‘The London Connection’ and ‘Baroness Tessa Jowell – A Tribute’.

Roland Rudd is a Trustee of the Royal Opera House and for the Speakers In Schools programme. Speakers in Schools was founded by Robert Peston.  Rudd is Trustee of the Garden Bridge Trust, a non-executive Director of the Army Board, a Patron of the NSPCC and a Governor of Wellington College. Dafydd has had links with the Army for many years and even managed to wangle Army pensions for people who had only served in the Army for a short time and had then been dishonourably discharged. Dafydd has claimed for many years to be treating Army veterans for PTSD. This is known in north Wales to be a con, most of Dafydd’s ‘PTSD veterans’ are drug addicts or alkies who have got into trouble with the law and availed themselves of the services of Dafydd to escape a prison sentence or to achieve a shorter one. See post ‘Feet In Chains’. The NSPCC employed people involved with the abuse of children and Sir Anthony Seldon, who was for years the Headmaster of Wellington College, has been party to many a scam of the paedophiles’ friends such as Mindfulness, measuring Gross National Happiness and the University of Buckingham (see post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’).

Roland Rudd is a visiting fellow at Oxford University’s Centre for Corporate Reputation, which is part of the Said Business School, an institution in no position to teach anyone anything about upholding reputations.

Roland’s sister is Amber Rudd, who served as Home Secretary under David Cameron.
