Behind The Scenes With Lord Wigley and Those Perfect Slaves

Some days ago I meant to let readers know of a Forthcoming Event, precisely a Public Lecture by Dafydd Wigley, MP for Caernarfon, 1974-2001; AM for Caernarfon, 1999-2003; Leader of Plaid Cymru, 1981-84 and 1991-2000. I saw an advert for Lord Wigley’s lecture in the Daily Post; it was an impressive advert, the best part of half a page, accompanied by a big pic of a smiling Lord Wigley. Image result for Dafydd WigleyUnfortunately I have so much reading to do and so much to follow up with this blog that I am having to forego many opportunities for taking the piss out of those we know and love and thus I didn’t advertise Lord W’s lecture on this blog as I intended.

I’ve seized the opportunity now, because Lord Wigley’s column in the Daily Post today is a plug for his Public Lecture, which he is giving tonight at 7 pm at the Llanberis Slate Museum. I note that entry is free, but by ticket only; I wonder why, does Lord Wigley fear that I might arrive unannounced?

I don’t mind if Lord Wigley gives a Public Lecture, I’ve been to two lectures given by Lord Wigley myself in the past, I enjoyed them and saw no reason to be rude or disrespectful. However, as with a few other recent events, I’ve been told that Lord W’s Public Lecture is part of the Fightback against this blog.

Lord Wigley’s column in today’s Daily Post tells us that he ‘will recall the fight for the compensation for slate quarrymen disabled by silicosis’. Lord W explains that his lecture is in the context of this year marking the 150th anniversary of Dinorwig Quarry’s Gilfach Ddu buildings, which ‘houses the outstanding Slate Museum’ and Gwynedd County Council’s bid to secure World Heritage Status for the Slate Landscape of North West Wales, which has gained UK Gov’t support; Westminster Ministers Helen Whatley and David Davies have offered their support for the bid.

Lord Wigley emphasises in his column today how hard he worked to fight for Gwynedd quarrymen to be compensated re the lung diseases that so many of them developed from their work. The Gwynedd quarrymen’s cause was certainly not as well-known or supported as the case for the compensating of the miners in south Wales who developed lung conditions. There were far fewer Gwynedd quarrymen than coal miners and Gwynedd is a rural sparsely populated region; furthermore the Labour votes of the south Wales valleys for many years were essential to keeping numerous Labour MPs in the Commons and underpinned the post-WW II Labour Gov’ts to a substantial degree.

If Labour lost south Wales they’d had it, which was one reason why the dreadful conduct of Westminster Molester George Thomas was tolerated and concealed by many Labour figuresSee the source image in south Wales who loathed him.

Of course there’d have been the domino effect if George Thomas’s serial sexual assaults on boys as young as 10 ever had become public knowledge; a great many people outside the Labour Party as well as outside politics completely would have fallen as well, but the rock-solid Labour vote in so much of south Wales which held up long after Labour was a busted flush in other parts of Britain was a major factor that made Thomas untouchable, no matter how often he offended and upset other people. I am very rude about a lot of people on this blog, but I have always acknowledged that most people really do not hold with sexually assaulting children and killing witnesses, even politicians. People certainly did not like what George Thomas, Gwynne, Dafydd Alun Jones et al were doing; I am not angry with those who colluded because I think that for one moment they liked that crew, but because those who colluded were weak, opportunistic and made the lives of people like me very difficult because we had dared complain…

It is true, as Dafydd Wigley tells us in the Daily Post today, that he did fight for the Gwynedd quarrymen to be compensated. However, what Lord W didn’t say, although I have discussed it in previous posts, is that his Brave Fight went rather quiet for a long while – I acknowledge that it was a difficult battle, Gwynedd per se was marginalised, Dafydd Wigley was marginalised in Parliament as all Plaid politicians were, it wasn’t easy for Wigley – and was only resurrected and then rewarded with PR and a bit more success in the 1990s after Dafydd Wigley quietly dropped any interest that he had previously shown in what was happening to me and to F at the hands of the Gang…

I suspected ages ago that a Deal had been done and then I received info via the blog. Once more I’ve been a bit slow; I thought that Lord W just had to keep quiet about me and people like me because of the numerous ramifications and the absolute necessity not to admit that there was serious criminality rampant in the NHS in north Wales. No, there’s A Clue in Lord W’s Daily Post column! It was because MEDICAL EVIDENCE was needed for the quarrymen’s compensation claim! The Top Docs complete co-operation was needed, they absolutely could not have their pints spilt by anyone for any reason.See the source image

Previous posts eg. ‘Successful Surgery On George VI!’ and ‘International Finance, With Thanks To Gwynne’ discussed Prof Jethro Gough from the Welsh National School of Medicine – George Thomas Central – who was one of the senior academics/Top Docs at Cardiff facilitating the organised abuse that spiralled out across so much of the UK and even into other nations, as well of course as propping up Gwynne and Dafydd’s empire. See the source imageJethro built his reputation on his Expertise in the industrial diseases of coal mining and Jethro bagged accolades and awards for this. See the source imageJethro was one of the Experts who helped the coal miners secure compensation when the Gwynedd quarrymen were being ignored.

Previous posts have discussed how in spite of Jethro’s efforts, there was little Expertise or indeed sympathy for the coal miners of south Wales and their Health Problems. One of Jethro’s fellow Experts at Cardiff even conducted research as to why the health of those in mining communities in the valleys was so much worse than those communities who lived in the Vale of Glamorgan; he concluded that the difference was in the psychological orientation of the two communities towards health. The ex-miners in the valleys coughing their lungs up and full of aches, pains and disabilities from former physical injuries were in that state because of, it was argued, psychosomatic reasons. Whereas those who lived in the Vale of Glamorgan, a far wealthier rural area, with lush countryside and some very desirable residences as well, had such a very much more positive outlook re Health that it Manifested Itself Physically.

My look at the difference! Sister Hutt and Sir William aren’t bringing out their dead!Image result for eat your five a day images

Who was the Top Doc who elucidated the reasons for the difference in Health Outcomes between south Wales valleys mining communities and the professional classes of the Vale of Glamorgan? It was Prof Kenneth Rawnsley, appointed as Chair of Psychological Medicine at the Welsh National School of Medicine in 1964. Kenneth was responsible for Upholding Standards of Care, Treatment and Training in psychiatry across the whole of Wales and cheerfully reassured the world throughout Ken’s time at Cardiff that Gwynne and Dafydd were doing such a great job up in the Denbigh Dungeon that the institution was suitable to Train Top Docs and Angels. Ken Rawnsley was President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, 1981-84, while Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist sat in the UCNW Student Health Centre and when the Gwynne Row erupted after I complained about him.

Ken Rawnsley’s wife was child psychiatrist Dr Elinor Kapp who worked in south and mid-Wales. Elinor was a founding Trustee of the George Thomas Society – now known as City Hospice, the name George Thomas no longer being a crowd-pleaser – one of George’s medical charidees. See previous posts.

One of Ken Rawnsley’s students who then worked for Ken as a junior doc in south Wales was Tony Francis. Tony Francis was a big fan of Dafydd Wigley and sung his praises to F and I. Tony was also passing on confidential documents about me – including inaccurate and forged documentation – to the Windbag’s office (Tony Francis had known the Windbag when Tony was a student in Cardiff) and the documentation was shared among many. Even if the many pretended to believe the contents, the many were fully aware of what Gwynne and the Gang were doing and why War had been declared on me. I’m not sure that so many realised that F had also been targeted because he had refused to keep quiet about the abuse of kids in care, police corruption and other serious matters, but even so people did know that much of what had happened to F was the handiwork of the criminality of the Gang’s Well Respected Men.Dr Dafydd Alun JonesImage result for chief constable philip myers imagesSee the source image

Kenneth Rawnsley had also been Head of the MRC Social Psychiatry Unit in south Wales. That Unit was associated with the MRC Pneumoconiosis Unit in south Wales. Both Units had grown from the staff of the Maudsley. Most members of the Units teams were laughable, except for Archie Cochrane who was a good scientist and understood robust research. As far as I can work out, Cochrane himself undertook high quality work, but his colleagues didn’t, including Rawnsley. Archie Cochrane became famous and revered and thus many hitched a lift on Cochrane’s reputation including Rawnsley.

Archie might have been a little too much of a robust enquiring scientist than many felt comfortable with. One of Archie’s pieces of research demonstrated that in south Wales, the mortality rates among younger adults actually decreased when the number of Top Docs in the area fell; for some reason, having Top Docs around was killing younger adults in south Wales. The work was never followed up. In the same vein, on Anglesey in the earlier decades of the 20th century, mortality rates of babies rose in the villages that were served by a midwife…  No-one dared dig deeper.

One of Archie’s MRC Units originals from south Wales years later found fame and fortune just as I was in the middle of much bad PR re my Mad and Dangerous ways; in Dec 1990 Archie’s former colleague published a Discovery in the field of Gastric Cancer Research, along with colleagues from Ysbyty Gwynedd and Bangor University. The Discovery was such that it received high profile coverage on the BBC and on a global basis. Days later a much lower profile press release was issued explaining that ‘shortcomings’ in the research had been identified and the Discovery wasn’t quite such a Discovery after all. The ‘shortcomings’ in the research included a sample size of THREE for the control and the presence of some of the subjects in the study suffering from cancers other than gastric cancer. One of the authors of the paper was an elderly agricultural scientist who’s Expertise had been his research into cancer in pigs some 20 years previously.

How that journal article ever got past the peer reviewers I do not know. However, when I looked closely at the dates re the article being received, reviewed, returned for amendments etc, I suspected that, like Bodger and Malcolm Pearce’s big research fraud in 1994 at St George’s (see eg. ‘Now Then…’), it was a rigged process from start to finish and there was no peer review etc. The Editor of the journal was I suspect in on the scam and any old shite was submitted, safe in the knowledge that it would be published. The dummies who wrote the article were so clueless that it didn’t occur to them that within hours of publication someone who wasn’t a fraudster would read it and respond with

The authors of the daft article were colleagues/friends of Dafydd’s as well as known to Rawnsley; two of them remained at Bangor University for years afterwards, one teaching stats in the Dept of Psychology and one as Head of the Clinical Trials Unit at Bangor. In recent years they have established their own Scientific Consultancy.

The biggest mystery for me was that Sir Richard Doll no less was cited in the joke paper as having provided guidance on the research. Then I found out that Richard Doll had links with some of Archie’s old muckers and the Need To Shaft Sally Baker who had recently been working with some of Sir Richard’s Big Chums In Cancer Research and had witnessed what they had been doing was such that Sir Richard was be happy to help. Richard Doll has been involved in controversies himself – mainly over conflicts of interest – but surely when Sir Richard was carrying out his ground-breaking work on tobacco smoking and lung cancer, he didn’t rely on a sample of THREE?? I presume that Doll’s research participants all had lung cancer as well, rather than wandering wombs or other ailments as diagnosed by Dafydd et al…

See post ‘They Think It’s All Over – It Is Now’ for details of the Gastric Cancer Discovery that wasn’t and other posts for info on Archie Cochrane, Richard Doll et al. The Gastric Cancer Discovery was published in Dec 1990, the month in which I decided that most of Bodger’s crowd at St George’s were so crazy, dishonest and unpleasant that I really didn’t want to work with them any longer. In Dec 1990, the Drs Francis had me arrested, in London, after they perjured themselves yet again. I was transported back to Gwynedd by the police, charged with serious offences, appeared before Caernarfon Magistrates Court and was bailed to live in London until my next Court appearance. I was admitted to Springfield Hospital in Jan 1991 and was forced out of my job at St George’s. See eg. ‘The Price Is Right’ for details, including for extracts of the most incriminating documentation compiled by the Gang and their accomplices at St George’s, Springfield and Wandsworth Social services themselves.

What I want to flag up here is that Thatch was forced out as PM on 28 Nov 1990 by a group of disillusioned Tories led by Douglas Hurd, Heseltine and Geoffrey Howe who were ably assisted by Bodger and the Top Docs, particularly big wigs in the BMA with Dr John Marks leading the charge. The Drs Francis demanded my arrest and perjured themselves days after John Major became PM.

It is clear from my documentation that what was supposed to have happened was that once Thatch had been deposed, I was supposed to have ended up in prison or a secure psych unit and those on the ground in Bangor who didn’t have the status of Bodger et al were going to be constructed as Excellent Scientists as well…

After I had previously blogged quite extensively about research fraud in cancer research, Catrin Finch – who has held the position as Carlo’s Royal Harpist and doubles up as Lord Wigley’s daughter-in-law – tweeted the news that she had recently finished a course of treatment for cancer and Ah the Doctors they were wonderful and she was Now In The Clear. Catrin is still quite young and it is unfortunate that she developed cancer, but the Yah Boo Sucks bit to the blog was silly; Catrin is an excellent harpist but she knows nothing about oncology and she does not know how Excellent or otherwise her Treatment was. She’d know if the staff were friendly and chatty or whether they were rude, hostile and callous, but Catrin has no idea if the diagnostic tests were carried out as appropriate, no idea whether the test results were interpreted correctly, no idea if she received the best treatment regimes and no idea if she had been given misleading info because her clinicians weren’t up to scratch themselves or whether they had actively lied to her. Furthermore, Catrin does not know whether she is now In The Clear, the Clear is not established re the sort of cancer that Catrin developed until several years have passed.

Catrin does know how to play the harp however:See the source image

Catrin has know the Wigleys for years, her harp tutor when she was a girl was Lord Wigley’s wife, Gordon Bennett:

 

Prior to joining George Thomas’s friends at the Welsh National School of Medicine, Ken Rawnsley was based at Manchester University and was one of a large team who were er concealing the criminality of Gwynne and Dafydd. Ken went back even further with the Gang; Ken Trained at Manchester University and as a junior doc worked for Lord Robert Platt, a Giant Of Medicine who was deeply contemptuous of psychiatrists – although his wife was one – and advised all able students and junior docs never to take up psychiatry. However Lord Platt was happy to conceal the crimes of Gwynne et al. See the source imageLord Platt was not from a medical family, the Platts were Bohemian, Cultured and Arty; they were big wigs in Opera, Classical Music and Theatre and Lord Platt’s son became a Prof of Music in Oz. See previous posts.See the source image

After Training and junior posts in Manchester, Ken Rawnsley worked at the Maudsley, where Dafydd Alun Jones himself would soon Train; at the time the Maudsley was peopled by some splendidly mad Top Docs such as the violent and crazed Sir Aubrey Lewis and Top Docs who had close links to some of the Nazi Top Docs. Ken then returned to Manchester to work with the old crowd…

For an account of the small, mad circle of dangerous docs who migrated between the major hubs of psychiatry in the UK, who all knew each other and colluded with/assisted Gwynne and Dafydd, see eg. ‘The Newcastle-Upon-Tyne Connection’, ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’, ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ and ‘The Case Of The King’s Sperm’.

Dafydd Wigley studied at Manchester University. I have no idea if Lord Wigley knew Rawnsley and his chums at Manchester but Manchester University was choc a block with people who weren’t Top Docs but nonetheless were colluding with Gwynne and Dafydd et al. There were friends of Bertrand Russell/Sir Clough/the Croesor contingent working at Manchester at the time as discussed in ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’ One of Russell’s friends at Manchester was the social anthropologist Isabel Emmett who in 1964 published a famous community study of Cwm Croesor, ‘A North Wales Village’. Isabel published other very interesting pieces, such as one about youth culture in Blaenau Ffestiniog in the 1960s. She was a very good social scientist, Isabel would not have missed the excesses of Gwynne and Dafydd but she never mentioned it although there is a passing reference in her work to certain doctors and lawyers in north Wales of whom people lived in fear and who were so powerful that people would be ruined if they ever crossed them.

Isabel spent much time in Cwm Croesor and even married a local man from Croesor who was friends with the Welsh Speaking Social Worker, appointed in the late 1960s to Protect Patients’ Rights in the wake of concern that if English speaking social workers assessed first language Welsh speakers, patients would not be given a fair assessment and might be banged up in Denbigh when they should not have been.

This is a salient point, but a number of things were left unsaid by the (substantially) Plaid campaigners who pushed for the appointment of the Welsh Speaking Social Worker. Including: Gwynne and Dafydd both spoke Welsh fluently and routinely illegally incarcerated people so the presence of a Welsh Speaking Social Worker was neither here nor there. The Welsh Speaking Social Worker took orders from Gwynne and Dafydd; he had no clout at all. The loudest voice in psychiatry on a UK basis and in medicine in north Wales at that time with regard to Welsh Language Rights was one Dr Dafydd Alun Jones. Dafydd Alun Jones had stood as the Plaid candidate for Denbigh in two General Elections, 1959 and 1964. Dafydd Wigley was touting himself around as a Plaid candidate at a similar time, as indeed was Ioan Bowen Rees, CEO of Gwynedd County Council, 1980-91, during Peak Paedophilia. Ioan served as an adviser to one Dafydd Wigley MP.

For further details on the farce that was the Welsh Speaking Social Worker who was going to Protect Patients’ Rights, see eg. ‘Theatre Of The Absurd’.

The Welsh Speaking Social Worker I’m fairly sure was (Thomas) Merfyn Hughes, who lived in Croesor and, shortly after he retired, was found dead in someone else’s garden near Croesor, in Nov 2010. Merfyn’s body had lain undiscovered for many hours because it was hidden from view behind a shed/greenhouse. Merfyn’s Inquest was one of the best that Caernarfon had ever seen, even by the standards of Coroner Dewi Pritchard Jones. Dewi concluded that Merfyn had been walking home from the Brondanw Arms drunk in the early hours, had fallen down a steep embankment into the other person’s garden, had decided to have 40 winks in the garden and then froze to death. Before presumably hiding his body.

See post ‘A Particularly Worrying Death’ for the details of Thomas Merfyn Hughes’ demise.

I encountered Merfyn Hughes in 2005. He was at the time Gwynedd County Council’s Senior Manager for the psychopaths and thugs of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team, who had not only over many years repeatedly perjured themselves in Court in attempts to have me imprisoned, assaulted me, lied constantly to and about me, but although they had always refused to have me as a Client – not that I had ever requested their Services- had accumulated a File On Me that they refused to Share with me. So I contacted Merfyn Hughes, who pissed me off by calling me a Service User, but to be fair to Merfyn when the thugs and perjurers of the Arfon CMHT refused to give my file to him, he went to their office and physically removed it from them.

Merfyn then sent me a copy and what a treasure trove it was. The Arfon Team had acquired copies of EVERY INTERACTION that I’d ever had with any Top Doc and not just psychiatrists; there were copies of blood test results in there, info about the few medical consultations that I’d had for non-mental health matters, the lot. There was press clippings about me, info about my Criminal Nature, info about my education, my career and even my future career plans, info about my friends and even family members in Somerset including those with whom I wasn’t in touch. No-one ever managed to explain what any of this was doing in the possession of the Arfon CMHT.

One Croesor resident who was friendly with Thomas Merfyn Hughes was Gio Bloor. She had been married to a surgeon in Manchester; her second home at Croesor had been acquired from her father, Lord Patrick Blackett, a Nobel winning mathematician who was Of Bertrand Russell, Gwynne and Dafydd. See eg. ‘The Two Cultures Of Organised Abuse’.

I have no idea how Gio Bloor felt about the Gang, I did meet her but I let her lead the interview. I was later told ‘Ooh you do know WHO she is??’ Of course I did, but I can’t assume that Gio Bloor or even her surgeon husband were Of The Gang, they might have hated Gwynne, Dafydd, Lord Platt et al, I have no idea. I have heard that she died recently….

This is why I don’t assume that people are Of The Gang unless I have very obvious evidence pointing to that. What I do know is that a lot of people were and are very frightened of them. So can dissenters stop telling me to make assumptions about people when I have insufficient evidence?

Thomas Merfyn Hughes had political ambitions himself and in 1979 stood as the Labour Party candidate for Lord Wigley’s own constituency. Mr Hughes subsequently Crossed The Floor, because when he was found dead in someone else’s garden what everyone knew about him was that he had been Elfyn Llwyd’s electoral agent. Llwyd was the Plaid MP for Dwyfor Meirionydd (the constituency that included Cwm Croesor), 9 April 1992 – 30 March 2015. Llwyd is a barrister who is widely spoken of as being a crook. Elfyn was President of Gwynedd Law Society, 1990-91. Elfyn Llwyd’s wife is a Welsh folkie, as of course is Dafydd Iwan, for years the Leader of Gwynedd County Council. Dafydd Iwan’s brother Alun Ffred also served as Leader of Gwynedd CC as well as the Plaid AM for Caernarfon, 1 May 2003-3 May 2007 and Arfon, 3 May 2007-4 April 2016.

Dafydd Wigley’s Daily Post article mentions that a successful coalminers case in 1967 led ‘to the 1975 compensation agreement between the Unions, the Coal Board and the Government. Successful court cases were fought for quarrymen by Bangor solicitor Sir Elwyn Jones, on behalf of the Unions.’

Sir Elwyn was a bundle of laughs, he has starred on the blog previously and is not to be confused with Elwyn Jones who became Lord Elwyn-Jones, Lord Chancellor, 1974-79 and People Trafficker In Chief. Sir Elwyn served briefly as the Labour MP for Conwy, 1950-51, the seat later occupied for decades by Lord Wyn Roberts. Sir Elwyn was, like Lord Elwyn-Jones, a crooked lawyer who was on board with the Gang, but a smaller fish. Sir Elwyn was the son of Calvinist Methodists who were living in Bootle when he was born. Sir Elwyn attended Bootle Secondary School, Ffestiniog Grammar School, UCNW and then London University.

Sir Elwyn qualified as a solicitor in 1927, was appointed Clerk to the Bangor Magistrates in 1934 and served as Town Clerk of Bangor, 1939-69.  Elwyn Jones was a member of the Caernarfonshire County Council, 1945-69. He served as a member of the National Parks Commission, 1966-68 and of the Countryside Commission for Wales, 1968-71 and was a member of the Court and Council of UCNW, Bangor from 1943.  Sir Elwyn served as Treasurer of UCNW from 1970 and then as Vice-President, 1977-82.

Sir Elwyn stood as the Labour candidate for Caernarfonshire in 1931 and 1935 and Caernarfon District of Boroughs in 1945, before securing election as the Labour MP for Conway in 1950. He was subsequently defeated in 1951 and 1955. Elwyn was knighted in 1978 and died on 4 July 1989.

A few observations: Sir Elwyn spent his entire life in the bosom of the Gang. When he was a Labour MP, Attlee was PM; Sir Elwyn knew Lord Gnome,Image result for William Piercy, 1st Baron Piercy my distant relative by marriage and indeed Lord Gnome’s emissaries. See ‘Lord Gnome, My Distant Relative By Marriage’. Sir Elwyn died when I was working at St George’s, some three/four weeks after Tony Francis had set out on his first Cunning Plan to rig a Secret Case Conference – held by someone of whom I had never heard, taking evidence from people of whom I had never heard in order to have me declared Dangerous and Insane and banged up. The first that I knew of any of this was some four years ago when I acquired the documentation. See ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’. Just days after Sir Elwyn’s death in July 1989, Gang associates Prof Robert Owen, Prof Robert Bluglass and Dr Colin Berry covered up the Gang’s criminality when they ‘investigated’ my complaint. Robert Owen came from Pwhelli, lived in Colwyn Bay and spent years working as an orthopaedic surgeon in north Wales until he took up the Chair of Orthopaedic Surgery in Liverpool. Dafydd Wigley knew Robert Owen.

The Plaid MP who succeeded Dafydd Wigley in Wigley’s Westminster seat, Hywel Williams, See the source image comes from Pwllheli and is a former psychiatric social worker. Indeed Hywel is a Welsh Speaking Social Worker who is not that much younger than THE Welsh Speaking Social Worker; Hywel, a psychology graduate of Cardiff University, worked with Gwynne, Dafydd et al. Empowered Service Users loathe Hywel as an MP because not only did Hywel ignore the abuses which his former colleagues inflicted upon the Empowered ones, but Hywel also attended the jollies of the thugs and perjurers of the Arfon CMHT and was always happy to praise their work, share platforms with/be photographed with them. Comments of ‘What chance do we have when the local MP is friends with them?’ were common.

I’m gobsmacked that Hywel has got away with it; his work Helping People dates back to Gwynne the Lobotomist, it’s not as if Hywel can ever pretend that he was all about Talking Treatments and Mindfulness…See the source image

Sir Elwyn was Vice-President of UNCW when Gwynne was sitting in the Student Heath Centre, when UCNW was a vehicle for the trafficking ring. Sir Elwyn’s fellow Vice-President was O.V. Jones, a Bangor-based Consultant Obs and Gynae, who’s hands were covered in so much blood there won’t have been any skin visible: women denied NHS terminations for any reason yet illegal abortions on demand in return for payment, newborns abducted at birth in collusion with Dafydd et al and not just from teenagers or Unmarried Mothers, sexual assaults on patients, kids in care trafficked, it was one big laugh with Respected Top Doc O.V.See the source image

However O.V. was Supportive of Rebel UCNW students who were protesting over Welsh Language issues during the 1970s and were facing disciplinary action; one protest was led by Language Activist Dafydd Iwan, although he wasn’t a UCNW student. See eg. ‘Meet The Gwerin!’

Sir Elwyn was a small fish in comparison to Lord Elwyn-Jones, but a big enough fish in Gwynedd to be a pain in the butt and his son, also a bent solicitor called Elwyn Jones, inherited his dad’s solicitor’s firm as well as his dad’s Duties In The Community such as a place on the governing body of UNCW, the job of Treasurer of UCNW and I have been told, the instruction to Get Me.

Sir Elwyn was well-acquainted with Sir Idwal Pugh, the corrupt Civil Service mandarin who was of the Gang and served George Thomas at the Welsh Office before moving onto to serve the Gang’s City slicker Peter Walker when Walker was Grocer Heath’s Environment Secretary, before Idwal bagged the role of Parliamentary Ombudsman/Commissioner for Health Services, 1 April 1976-31 December 1978, under Sunny Jim as the Gang were busy Growing The Business. In retirement Idwal, a Calvinistic Methodist, See the source imagejoined Peter Walker and the biggest City slicker of all behind the Gang, Tiny Rowland, in a Career In Finance. Idwal was, among other things, Chairman of the Halifax and I have been told that Idwal was the cause of the Halifax suddenly withdrawing their offer of a mortgage that they had made me, thus preventing me from moving to the Isle of Ling when I had finally had enough of the Gang. Idwal was an alumni of St John’s College, Oxford, as was Tiny’s old mate and business partner Edward du Cann. See eg. ‘The Naked Civil Servants’ for info on Idwal Pugh.

Sir Elwyn’s son (Huw) Elwyn Jones died in 2009 and the Tribute that appeared on the Bangor University website was penned by His Honour Eifion Roberts QC DL, bent old judge of Gray’s Inn – the Inn of which so many of the Gang’s Big Mates were members, including Lord Elwyn-Jones and Sir William Mars-Jones – and the brother of Lord Wyn See the source imageRoberts:

‘Huw Elwyn Jones’ untimely death was deeply felt, not least at the University which he had served so loyally as a member of Council and, over the last decade of his life, as its Treasurer. A distinguished solicitor, a former President of The Gwynedd Law Society and a deputy District Judge, he was highly respected in the legal circles of North Wales and beyond. See the source imageAlways approachable, charming and good-humoured, he had an excellent rapport with everybody. His knowledge of Bangor, gained in legal practice over many years, was quite unequalled. The governance of the University benefited greatly from his able and informed contributions in debate. Being an accomplished advocate, he presented the annual accounts before Council and the Court with lucidity and gave a balanced interpretation of his own in the interests of the less financially literate among us. Close to his heart was the establishment of the new Law School. He watched its progress with pride and was always available to give advice and encouragement. Both Huw and Anna were pillars of the musical and artistic life of Bangor and ensured that a warm welcome awaited all who attended concerts at P.J. Huw is sadly missed by all his friends and colleagues. We extend our sincere sympathy to Anna and the family.’

The enormous problems at Bangor University’s School of Law from its very beginnings have been discussed in previous posts; the main problem being that again and again it was found that law students on the course had previous convictions for serious offences or had been arrested. It was a complete embarrassment, there were some five or so law students at Bangor who were jailed within the space of some four years. Everyone knew what the root was: the School of Law had been established by the bent lawyers of Wales who were Of The Gang and the children of their friends were bagging places on the law degree at Bangor, no matter how poor their academic record. Neither was anyone checking their previous criminal records. Then there was the flagrant rigging of the exam results that so angered academics at Bangor with standards. In one year, the PVC for Learning and Teaching, Prof Colin Baker – who’s wife Susan worked at Ysbyty Gwynedd so Colin Knew All About Me! – ordered that 30% should be routinely added to EVERY exam script from the Law School. Why? Because the results were so poor that most of the cohort would have failed if that had not have been done.

The Legal Beagle who was the first Head and Prof of Bangor Law School was Thomas Glyn Watkin.

The Reverend Professor Thomas Glyn Watkin QC (born 1952) is a Welsh lawyer and the first person to be appointed to the post of First Legislative Counsel to the Welsh Government,  taking up his post in April 2007. Working within the Office of the Legislative Counsel, part of the Welsh Govt, Professor Watkin had responsibility for the drafting of the Welsh Govt’s legislative programme following the implementation of the Government of Wales Act 2006.

Thomas Glyn Watkin was born in the village of Cwmparc in the Rhondda in 1952. He studied Law at Pembroke College, Oxford (1971-1974). Watkin obtained the degrees of BA (1974), BCL (1975) and MA (1977) from the University of Oxford and was called to the Bar by the Middle Temple (1976).See the source image

From 1975 until 2004, Watkin was successively Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader and Professor in the Law School at the University of Wales, Cardiff, as well as acting as Legal Assistant to the Governing Body of the Church in Wales, 1981-98. He was appointed foundation Professor of Law at the University of Wales, Bangor in 2004.

Professor Watkin is a Council member of the Selden Society, Secretary and Treasurer of the Welsh Legal History Society and a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Legal History. Watkin was elected to the Academy of Private Lawyers of Milan and Pavia in 2002 See the source imageand is an ordained priest in the Church in Wales.

In 2019 Professor Watkin was appointed as Queen’s Counsel honoris causa. Upon his appointment the Lord Chancellor, David Gauke MP, referred to Professor Watkin’s role as the Welsh Government’s “…first principal Legislative Draftsman”, noting that he was “involved centrally in establishing and building the legislative drafting capacity of the Welsh Government – in both English and Welsh – in the initial years of primary legislative devolution for Wales”.

Watkin’s principal publications include The Nature of Law (1980), The Italian Legal Tradition (1998) and An Historical Introduction to Modern Civil Law (1999), and, as editor, Legal Record and Historical Reality (1989), The Europeanization of Law (1997), Legal Wales: Its Past; Its Future (2001), The Trial of Dic Penderyn and Other Essays (2003) and Y Cyfraniad Cymreig (2005). His book, Wales: An Introduction to its Legal History, was published in the autumn of 2005.

The admissions tutor who was so understanding when receiving applications from the children of his friends with criminal convictions and bugger all academic potential was the Buffet Slayer aka Aled Griffiths. See eg. ‘Are You Local?’ and ‘Local Accessories’ for details of the Slayer.

Briefly: the Slayer had graduated from UCNW in the late 1960s/early 1970s and had served as President of the Students Union there. The Slayer’s sister Gwenan Carrington was Director of Gwynedd Social Services; his wife Joanna Griffiths was Director of Conwy Social Services; his twin brother Huw was a grossly incompetent solicitor who used to work in Gwynedd back in the 1980s/early 90s and sit in the Courts – along with (Huw) Elwyn Jones and the Right Honourable David Jones MP – watching me and others being fitted up by the Gang. The Slayer’s dad had been a Nonconformist Minister on Anglesey in Gwynne’s era and Quite Someone. Us sociologists used to enjoy our discussions re the phenomenon of the Anglesey Big Man who’s children were utterly incompetent and dishonest but still felt entitled to the best jobs in the region.

The Slayer was the Dafydd Alun Jones of Bangor University, he just had no understanding of notions such as conflict of interest, nepotism, unprofessional conduct etc. Again and again colleagues would discover something utterly dreadful that the Slayer had done and new members of staff couldn’t understand why the Slayer’s response to their challenge would be to simply bluster at and bully them. ‘Doesn’t he understand what he has DONE??’ No, he didn’t. The Slayer grew up in Gwynne and Dafydd’s world, he had no idea of how he should have been behaving. His longstanding family friends See the source imagewere sitting on the Council of Bangor University,Image result for peter higson images in the County Councils of Wales, See the source image in Healthcare Dr Dafydd Alun Jones or indeed in the Welsh Assembly See the source image and Westminster. See the source imageThe Slayer’s role at Bangor was to train to the next generation of bent lawyers for the Gang. Things were so gross that it backfired; by 2010, such was the stench around Bangor Law School that the law grads found it very hard getting jobs, even, ironically, with Gang-friendly firms. The Slayer didn’t care that the entire University viewed him as a provincial crook but he didn’t realise that his proteges needed to be able to pass themselves of as competent law grads and most of them couldn’t. As with the social work degree, there were good students on the law degree, but guess which students in the School of Law encountered hostility and unpleasantness from the Slayer et al? See previous posts…

 

Sir Elwyn Jones was occupying High Office in UCNW when Dafydd had Mary Wynch, a secretary in the Agri Dept at UCNW, wrongfully arrested and unlawfully imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre and then in the North Wales Hospital for a year. No-one at all at UCNW showed any interest in Mary’s plight, not when she made legal history in 1985 when she won her Appeal before the Master of the Rolls and the Gang fessed up that they had been as guilty as buggery, not when she received coverage in the press and not when Mary was the subject of a TV documentary on 5 March, 1991, questioning why no-one at all would defend Mary Wynch although she had made legal history by winning a case against Top Docs only to encounter yet more law breaking from professional associates of those Top Docs…

Readers may remember that it was (Huw) Elwyn Jones who acted for the Predators who fleeced F, left F destitute in Dec 1992, then made fallacious allegations about him to ensure that he was denied all access to his own young baby, the baby being placed by Gwynedd Social Services with the Predators, of whom two were known child abusers.

None of this was a secret; WPC Jo Bott, the Gwynedd Child Protection Officer, admitted that she knew about the two abusers and her response was to threaten me should I be thinking of Harassing Them. Not that I had or ever even attempted to Harass Them, instead I paid roughly £1000 of bills that they had unlawfully run up in F’s name; it was Elwyn Jones who advised them to send the bills to F and me, explaining to the Predators that the bills were in F’s name and thus he was legally responsible. Elwyn didn’t mention the unlawful use of F’s personal data but then Elwyn didn’t mention a friend of the Predators trying to intimidate me into giving them yet more money when she met me in Rachub High Street or the Predators wheeling F’s baby past our house at weekly intervals waving at us as they did so. Elwyn’s Last Stand was to advise the Predators that as F had no money left, they could apply to have money extracted from me for the upkeep of F’s baby…

Previous posts have discussed the other parties in on the conspiracy with (Huw) Elwyn and the Predators, including the Bethesda GPs, Arfon CMHT, North Wales Police, Hergest Unit, Dafydd Orwig (a Gwynedd County Councillor and retired lecturer from the Normal College, Bangor) and the North Wales Housing Association (new builds of choice were offered to a number of Predators in return for lying about F, the deal being brokered by Dafydd Orwig and Gwynedd Social Services).

Dafydd Orwig served on the old Caernarfonshire Council before Gwynedd CC came into being. Orwig tried his luck as a Plaid candidate in the Olden Days when Dafydd (Alun Jones), Dafydd Wigley, Ioan Bowen Rees and the other funsters were trying to get into the Commons. See ‘Thought For The Day’ for info on Orwig’s many activities.

(Huw) Elwyn Jones must have been as Passionately Committed to the Gang as everyone in the NHS is to Patient Care and Safety, because he worked really hard for the Predators, yet was an utterly hopeless solicitor. I used to see Elwyn when I was in Court; Elwyn was sort of chinless, with very dark hair and he’d sweep in pompously two minutes before his clients were about to be fitted up and imprisoned and he’d be wearing a rather naff suit and he’d flounce up to them with a sort of sneer and a brief nod and say ‘Are you OK then?’ and the poor buggers wouldn’t have time to disagree. Minutes later they’d be in Court with Elwyn utterly failing to defend their corner…

The minute that Elwyn’s last case had finished, he’d race out of the Court, braying at the other solicitors as he went ‘Well I’m off for a round of golf now’. Then it was to Bangor Golf Club, a Conspiring Place for the Gang, including the abusers of the NHS and Social Services. Empowered Service Users used to see Hard Working NHS Staff on Bangor Golf Course – which spread over Bangor mountain, behind the town and was criss-crossed with footpaths for Plebs – mid-afternoon, enjoying a round of golf when they were supposed to be On Duty. Didn’t we Slob Ingham of Arfon CMHT?

The Gang used golf clubs a great deal, they were as valuable for networking purposes as were rugby clubs; I presume that was why Mr Bridgy Celeb received invitations to Celeb Golf tournaments – among those he met were Tiger Woods and Frank Butcher of East Enders fame… See previous posts.

Jimmie McAlpine, one of Lord Alistair’s family  who lived in Denbighshire, served as President of Wrexham Golf Club, of which molesting police officer Gordon Anglesea was a member. Boys at Bryn Estyn were forced to work as caddies for Anglesea and his mates at Wrexham Golf Club. See eg. ‘Edinburgh Wears Prada’ for details of Jimmie and his extended family, one of whom was Archibald Douglas McAlpine, a high profile neurologist who knew Gwynne – who crossbred with the Lloyd Georges as well as other Gang families – and ‘The Cash Box’ for details of Jimmie’s son Bobby McAlpine, who became Chairman of the McAlpine Empire and has spent his life living in Shropshire.

I have discussed in previous posts how in the 1990s, there was a craze among some quite young schoolboys in Bangor for golf. I found out that Bangor Golf Club was heavily promoting Dads and Sons Golf Sessions, the wonderful thing being that once the boys – who were as young as nine or ten – had Got Used To It at the Golf Club, they could go up there on their own and the tired old dad could chill out at home safe in the knowledge that his son was in the company of the worst bunch of small-town crooks, cheats, liars and sex offenders that one could ever imagine.See the source image

How I laughed when I was told that most of the defence solicitors in Bangor were not punitive re Court sentencing, except for Elwyn Jones who was ‘a real hang em and flog em’. What they needed was a Short Sharp Shock.

Indeed many people received rather more than a Short Sharp Shock, they were in receipt of quite a few of them.

In those Happy Days, one of the solicitors who shared Elwyn Jones’s practice was the Right Honourable David Jones MP, since 2005 the Tory MP for Clwyd West:

Sir Elwyn Jones and son Chinless Elwyn – who inherited his residence from his dad – lived in style at Glyn Garth, on the Menai Strait, along the strip of land between Menai Bridge and Beaumaris known as Millionaires Row. Most of the residences on Millionaires Row were occupied by Gang leaders, usually NHS Top Docs or local solicitors like Elwyn, the bulk of whose work was funded by Legal Aid.

What with Elwyn having Passed Over in 2009, Elwyn can no longer let us know if he knew anything about the unfortunate death of Martin, the young man who lodged with the Predators in 1992-93, as the Cunning Plan re F unfolded. Gwynedd Social Services attempted to remove Martin’s little girl from his care and place her with her mum who had injured her within a few weeks of her birth, but as she couldn’t even be bothered to turn up for the custody hearing the abusers of Gwynedd had no choice but to award custody to Martin. Martin was found dead in the road near Bethesda during the Waterhouse Inquiry; his little girl was subsequently brought up by Martin’s parents…

I wonder if The Right Honourable David Jones knows anything about Martin’s death, being a colleague and pal of the late Elwyn?See the source image

The last that I saw of one of the Predators was when he was doing the Sounds for Arthur Scargill when Scargill came to speak at Bangor University in 2011. The Predator’s new wife – he’s had a few, including an Angel at Ysbyty Gwynedd – had stood as a candidate for Arthur’s eccentric Socialist Labour Party and was sharing a platform with Arthur. See the source image

Arthur was mates with Michael Mansfield and MM donated £1000 to Arthur’s Socialist Labour Party just after Arthur established it. I wrote to MM in 1993 about Gwynedd Social Services; he sent me a one line reply but more importantly sent up the distress flare to all other Radical Lawyers should any of them be contacted by me. In 1996 MM represented Sara Thornton at her Appeal – it was a Test Case re domestic violence – and won. MM’s colleague St Helena had first taken Sara’s case to Appeal in April 1991 and was in action in the neighbouring Court to me at the Royal Courts Of Justice in The Strand, after the Drs Francis had perjured themselves yet again…MM and St Helena are both of Gray’s Inn. See previous posts.

Arthur Scargill’s daughter is a Top Doc which places her in a more powerful position than either her clapped out old dad or her Strong Woman Feminist Campaigner of a mother, Anne Scargill, Anne Scargill, Betty Heathfield and other members of WAPC outside Buckingham Palace, August 1984what with Arthur and Anne’s daughter being brought up on the location of the ring in Yorkshire See the source imageof which Jimmy Savile was the leader, who had an excellent relationship with Dafydd and the Gang as well as with other people.Women Against Pit Closures 1984-85 logoSee the source imageSee the source image Image result for jimmy savile and prince charles images

Someone must have been very keen for Margaret Scargill to become a Top Doc, because she has an unusual CV for a Top Doc of her vintage. Margaret completed a BSc at Sheffield Hallam University, 1981-85, which at the time was still Sheffield Poly. Then Margaret completed an MPhil in Animal Physiology, 1986-87, at Sheffield University, before undertaking pre-clinical studies at Bart’s, 1987-89 and completing her clinical years at Leeds University, Savile HQ, 1989-92. Places to read medicine as a graduate student in those days were few and far between and competition was fierce: I know because I secured one. One did not get a look-in without at least a 2:1 and med schools were so snooty that it was virtually impossible for a graduate from a poly to bag a place. I note that Margaret did her Masters in exactly the same year that I did my Masters at Hammersmith and Margaret’s thesis was on a subject very similar to the research interest of the people in Bodger’s team at St George’s…

A few more Interesting Facts: Sheffield University was on the turf of David Blunkett and pals and was of course also a player on Jimmy Savile’s manor; Blunkett holds – or held – a Chair at Sheffield University. My post ‘The Big Questions’ discusses links between Blunkett and Prof Linda Woodhead, who came from Taunton, went to Emmanuel College, Cambridge, a la Lord Tom King; I have been told that Linda knew people who knew me both in Somerset and in Bangor and made good use of that. In the first years of the 1950s Sheffield University was also home to Hans Krebs – the Nobel winning biochemist who discovered the Krebs Cycle – before Krebs bagged his Chair at Oxford. At Sheffield University, Hans Krebs was closely associated with people carrying out controversial WW II research, including DDT Champ Kenneth Mellanby, Director of the worrying Sorby Unit, who knew some of the Ancients in the Dept of Zoology at UCNW.

Hans is the father of John Krebs, an ornithologist who was nothing special until John went to work at the Dept of Zoology at UCNW in the mid-1970s and discovered a paedophile ring. John Krebs’s career was off like a rocket after that and Lord John Krebs is now a Top Gov’t Scientist and gets put in charge of all sorts of things that ornithologist Lord John Krebs knows sod all about. See ‘The Science Of Animal Behaviour’ and ‘The Big Questions’ for details of Hans Krebs et al and John Krebs’ rise to the top, particularly after the Gang killed my friend Anne, a keen ornithologist, when she was a PhD student in the Dept of Zoology at UCNW, in April 1986, as discussed in ‘A Trail Of Blood’.

Re Margaret Scargill’s further studies at Bart’s and then Leeds. Bart’s was the institution at which Lord Snowdon’s grandfather Robert Armstrong-Jones, who grew up in Caernarfonshire and studied at UCNW, Qualified as a Top Doc Lord; Lord S’s barrister dad Ronald Armstrong-Jones was a governor of Bart’s. Traditionally, many Top Docs from Bart’s worked in north Wales. Leeds was Savile Central and Savile and his mates dominated the NHS in Leeds in particular. Previous posts have discussed Jimmy Shroff, a junior doc who arrived to work in Bodger’s team very shortly after I began working at St George’s. Jimmy had Qualified at Bart’s, subsequently worked as a trainee GP in D.G.E. Wood’s practice, passed through with Bodger et al and then held senior posts on Obs and Gynae at Manchester and subsequently Leeds. Jimmy died suddenly of pancreatic cancer when still quite young in 2004. His widow works for the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. Simon Leeson, a Consultant Obs and Gynae arrived to work in Gwynedd with the Gang in the mid-1990s, from Leeds. Simon’s colleagues were doing a great many things that they should not have and Simon knew about this, as discussed in previous posts and comments, including ‘The Price Is Right’. Bodger’s mate and partner in crime Malcolm Pearce trained at Leeds and Malcolm remained in excellent terms with his old muckers at Leeds, visiting them regularly. See previous posts.

Margaret entered Leeds University in 1989, the year that I began working at St George’s, the year of the Secret Case Conference, the year in which Robert Owen, Bluglass and Colin Berry did everything possible to conceal the Gang’s criminality…

Pauline Cutting is a long serving A&E Consultant at Ysbyty Gwynedd who in November 1985, volunteered to work in a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon and soon became Famous as a Humanitarian Hero from Bangor. In April 1987, Pauline’s dad Alan Cutting starred on TV, giving an interview after Pauline had returned to the UK following the breaking of a siege by Lebanese Shi’ite Amal gunmen in the Bourj Al-Barajneh Palestinian refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon where Pauline had been trapped for five months. Pauline’s dad’s interview came hot on the heels of a TV report on a meeting between UK Foreign Secretary, Geoffrey Howe, and Amine Gemayel, President of Lebanon, at the Dorchester Hotel, London.

Pauline starred with Jimmy Savile on TV discussing her work. Here’s Thatch with her friend and hugely successful Tory Party fundraiser Lord Alistair McAlpine when Thatch was PM. See other posts eg. ‘The Price Is Right’ and ‘The Cash Box’ for discussion of McAlpine’s relatives – including Jimmie and Bobby McAlpine and Top Doc Archibald Douglas McAlpine – and their very close relationships with Gwynne, Dafydd and the Gang.

Before Savile’s death and the public exposure of his crimes, I asked Pauline Cutting what Jimmy Savile was like; she told me that he was ‘very, very odd’ but completely genuine with regard to his charidee work. In Jan 1988 Pauline published a book about her charidee Top Doc bit. There is a nice photo on the web of Pauline cuddling two children, accompanied by Savile. See post ‘The Price Is Right’.

Margaret Scargill would also have needed a great deal of money to qualify as a Top Doc via the route that she took, because funding wasn’t available for graduate medical students at the time; they had to self-finance, pay full fees and sustain themselves in an era when student loans were not available. There were often big problems with graduate students because even if they were hard working and took on paid work to help sustain themselves, once they began their clinical years they could not do that because they were working on the wards. Medical schools became very anxious because the only reason graduate students ever withdrew was because they ran out of money and there were rows about places being given to students who would not be able to complete the course if their dosh ran out. So someone gave Margaret Scargill many thousands of pounds to undertake pre-clin studies at Bart’s and then clin studies at Leeds.

When Margaret was busy at Bart’s, Bart’s was under threat of closure and a robust campaign was launched to Save Bart’s. Bart’s had a sort of partnership with the London Hospital and many Top Docs at Bart’s held joint appointments at the London Hospital. Many of Brave Wendy’s colleagues at the London Hospital when Dafydd’s partner in crime Brave Wendy underwent her trauma in 1985-86, Image result for wendy savage book images worked at Bart’s as well as at the London. Brave Wendy was of course a Socialist Feminist, active in leftist politics and her Support was entirely from the Left, from the Trade Unions, the Labour Party etc. Brave Wendy was tolerated by Tories because they were all in the same sewer, but it was lefties and Wimmin’s groups who loved Brave Wendy. See previous posts eg. ‘This Is A Nightmare For All Of Us’.

My post ‘The Science Of Animal Behaviour’ details Jimmy Shroff’s career – he held a senior post at Manchester before ending up at Leeds – as well as some more dodgy research published by N. G. Hodges, the Top Doc who wrote Jimmy’s 2004 obituary for the BMJ. N.G. Hodges, in 2016, published ‘Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in Welsh Slate Miners’: Reynolds C.J., MacNeill S.J., Williams J., Hodges N.G., Campbell M.J., Newman-Taylor A.J., Cullinan P. (2016) Occupational Medicine, Nov 2016 67 (1):20-25.

When N.G. Hodges co-authored that article, he hadn’t published anything since he wrote the obituary for his mate Jimmy for the BMJ in 2004. Before Jimmy’s obit, N.G. Hodges’ last contribution to medical science had been in April 1996. So N.G. Hodges suddenly published a paper about Welsh slate quarrymen in Nov 2016, the month that I first blogged about Jimmy Shroff and how he sought me out soon after I began working at St George’s, telling me that he’d heard that a girl from Bangor as working in Bodger’s Dept and did I know who she was…

When I wrote ‘The Science Of Animal Behaviour’, I presumed that N.G. Hodges probably hadn’t read my post about Jimmy by the time that he submitted that paper, but he could well have discovered that I had begun this blog a few months previously. Now I realise that from the day that I left my job at Bangor University in 2012 the Gang and associates were tracking my every move because they were so anxious about me writing a book or a blog about Gwynne, Dafydd et al and that they were even told as soon as I purchased the website for this blog, it may well have been that N.G. Hodges did get in there quickly with dodgy research; it seems to have been the response of the Gang on every occasion that they have become worried that someone might listen to what I say about them.

On his questionable paper, N.G. Hodges gave his affiliation as the School of Health and Related Research, University of Sheffield. Which is a little odd, because N.G. Hodges is a Top Doctor getting on in years who worked in Gwynedd back in the 1970s and 80s, specialising in respiratory illness…

N.G. Hodges’ co-authors who realised in 2016 that there was a sudden need to publish on obstructive pulmonary disease in Welsh slate miners were Carl Reynolds of the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London; S.J. MacNeill of the School of Social and Community Medicine, University of Bristol; J. Williams of the School of Health and Related Research, University of Sheffield; Michael J. Campbell of the University of Sheffield; A.J. Newman Taylor of the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College and P. Cullinan of the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College.

When I worked for Bodger, two of those who were most unpleasant to me worked in collaboration for the National Heart and Lung Institute and of course Hammersmith Hospital merged with Imperial not long after I completed my Masters at Hammersmith. Numerous big hitters in Gwynne and Dafydd’s circle were either Imperial graduates or had worked at Imperial, including Prof Wynn Humphrey Davies.

Wynn Humphrey Davies was born in Tufnell Park, London, but came from a high profile Liberal family in north Wales. Wynn’s father Richard Humphrey Davies came from Corris (now in Gwynedd) and served as Private Secretary to Lord Gladstone in the early 20th c and later worked closely with H.H. Asquith and Lloyd George in the Treasury and then in the Liberal Central Association.  Wynn studied at UCNW and after he retired returned to live in north Wales. Wynn lived to a great age so spent a very long retirement involved with UCNW, working closely with those we know and love, including Sir Elwyn Jones and (Huw) Elwyn Jones, as well as old favourites such as Gwynne etc. Wynn Humphrey graduated from UCNW in the 1930s and spent a short period as a member of staff before becoming a Lecturer, then Reader at Imperial College, and finally Professor of Electrical Engineering at Queen Mary College, London. Wynn became a member of the University Council in Bangor in the mid-1970s and served on it for 29 years, Chairing the University’s Finance Committee for 23 years. Wynn was instrumental in establishing the University’s Development Trust (for fund-raising purposes) during UCNW’s centenary in 1984, and he Chaired the Trustees for 16 years until 2000.

I have mentioned previously that while the Gang were scuttling about drawing up Cunning Plans to wreck my life, just after I graduated I received a letter from Wynn’s Development Trust asking if I’d donate, which I did and received an individual letter of thanks from Prof Sagar, Head of the School of Plant Biology and a standard issue letter of thanks from Prof Eric Sunderland, who had succeeded Sir Charles Evans as Principal in May 1984, because of Brown and me refusing to withdraw our complaint about Gwynne although I had no idea of that at the time. So all those people from UCNW in 1984 who told each other how dreadful I was and that I was a ‘prostitute’ have some explaining to do. As they do re them declaring my friend Anne to have also been a ‘prostitute’ (Anne and I were, I presume, keeping a disorderly house), while accepting the financial donation to UCNW from her parents after the Gang killed Anne. Obviously when the Depy of Zoology took Anne’s dad’s cheque no-one mentioned that his daughter had been murdered by a bunch of gangsters with whom they were in cahoots. See ‘A Trail Of Blood’.

Prof Wynn Humphrey Davies died on 24 June 2007.

 

Not only was there nothing new in the research published by N.D. Hodges et al, but I note that the work was based on a secondary analysis of MRC data. In 2016, there was not a great deal of slate quarrying going on in Wales any longer and the few quarrymen still working in the industry were well-protected, the deleterious effects of slate dust being well-known. So HOW OLD was the data used by N.G. Hodges et al? Donkey’s years old perhaps? Was it perhaps from the MRC Unit which was located in south Wales many years ago, run by Archie Cochrane, with which Dafydd and Tony Francis’s old mucker Professor Kenneth Rawnsley was involved?

N.G. Hodges is Neville Gittus Hodges who Qualified at the Welsh National School of Medicine in 1964. Neville has voluntarily relinquished his registration with the GMC! Gittus was until 1998 a Director of Gwynedd and Anglesey Hospice at Home; he job was stated to be ‘physician’. Many Top Docs of the Gang have been involved with Gwynedd and Anglesey Hospice at Home…

My post ‘The Science Of Animal Behaviour’ discussed details of Hodges ‘research’ in the 1980s – again flaky and based on old data – that he published in collaboration with other members of the Gang, both in Gwynedd and at other institutions, including the Welsh National School Of Medicine. I question in that post why Hodges et al were publishing questionable research on diseases of Gwynedd slate quarrymen, based on very old data, when the slate industry in Gwynedd was all but finished. Now I think I know; it was something to do with Lord Wigley et al and their campaigning for compensation for the slate workers… Any compensation paid will have to have been a result of the usual dodgy deals, the ‘research’ published by Hodges et al would never have been considered robust enough to stand as Expert Evidence in the face of genuine scrutiny. Some of their research was published in 1986, when the Gang were in full cry in pursuit of me, when the problems in Gwynedd Health Authority – at the time Hodges’ employer – were such that within three years, Wigley and his fellow Plaid MP for Anglesey Ieuan Wyn Jones were asking questions in the House as to the causes of the crisis and demanding answers from Wyn Roberts (see ‘A Visit to Gwynedd Archives’).

As if no-one knew what the problem was…Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

The havoc prevailing caused the Welsh Office to send in a Hit Squad of Management Consultants to Gwynedd Health Authority and David Hunt, then Peter Walker’s Minister at the Welsh Office, went up to Gwynedd to ‘discuss’ the matter with Noreen Edwards, the Chair of Gwynedd HA. The Noreen Edwards who was a long-standing Gang member – her name is all over my documents – as was her husband and indeed Noreen’s dad – Noreen was from the Gwynne Central, the Llandudno/Colwyn Bay area, but Trained as an Angel/midwife in Birmingham, passed through some of the London hospitals with Bodger’s crowd and then returned to north Wales as a Matron in various venues before rising through managerial ranks at Health Authority level. Not only were the ‘services’ provided by the NHS in Gwynedd non-existent but there was no dosh and indeed the HA was deeply in debt, despite bail-outs. The situation never ever changed and remains the same today.

Noreen Edwards sat on the Warnock Committee with Dafydd Wigley; Neither of them had a clue about the issues under scrutiny but as explained in previous posts, that didn’t matter because the only member of the Warnock Committee  who did know anything about fertility treatment was the Top Doc Dame Josephine Barnes who had previously been married to Grocer Heath’s personal physician and close friend Sir Brian Warren. Sir Brian and Dame Josephile were both facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’). Josephile simply gave the orders to the rest of the ‘independent Committee’. Noreen occupied many senior roles in the NHS and nursing at a UK level; as she had no idea how to care for patients or run a Health Authority, one can only presume that Noreen was invited onto Committees for other reasons. Dr Dafydd Alun JonesNoreen was a Colonel in the TA…

See previous posts for info on Noreen, her husband who served as Town Clerk for Colwyn Bay and her dad, a clergyman.

Margaret Scargill is a GP at the Ashville Medical Practice, Sheffield. Margaret has hit the headlines on a number of occasions and sometimes in a Hollywood Gossip way.

On

The daughter of National Union of Mineworkers’ president Arthur Scargill is to marry the man who helped close down the last pit in the NUM’s South Yorkshire heartland, it was disclosed yesterday. Dr Margaret Scargill has announced her plans to marry former Grimethorpe Colliery under-manager James Logan. Mr Logan, 42, is now business manager at the Ashville Medical Centre, in Barnsley, where Dr Scargill works as a GP. See the source imageHe told yesterday how he first met his future mother-in-law, Anne Scargill, five years ago when she was involved in the Women Against Pit Closures protest. He arrived at the colliery to find he could not get into his office because someone had super-glued the door shut. He studied security videotapes and saw Mrs Scargill sneaking along a corridor with a tube of glue in her hands. The couple plan to marry later this year.

On 17 Feb 1998 The Mirror published the following article:

The man set to marry the daughter of miners’ leader Arthur Scargill was yesterday branded a love cheat – by his own daughter. Angry Stefni Logan revealed that her father James had dated his estranged wife Heather while romancing Dr Margaret Scargill. And Stefni warned Margaret’s parents that Mr Logan is a “sly, deceitful toe-rag”.  See the source imageStefni, 17, told The Mirror: “My dad’s the pits. If only the Scargills knew what they were taking on by letting him into their family . . . He really hurt us with his lying and I know he had two innocent women on the go for at least a month.”See the source image

Medical centre manager Mr Logan, a 42-year-old former pit boss, tried to patch up his marriage after falling for GP Margaret, 36. And while Margaret sat at home, he jetted away with Heather, 43. The Logans spent a week in Egypt cruising on the Nile. They shared a cabin, and were photographed arm in arm touring historic sites. See the source imageColleagues at the surgery See the source imagewhere Mr Logan and Margaret work had been told he was going to see Stefni, who was on an exchange visit in America. Then five days after returning to Britain, he jilted Heather and said to her: “I’m not coming back. I’ve fallen in love with Margaret Scargill.”  Asked how long he and Margaret had been having a relationship, he replied: “It’s about four weeks – but we’ve not been sleeping together.” See the source imageCollege student Stefni spoke out after being stunned to read in The Mirror that her father planned to wed Dr Scargill later this year.Image result for nigel dempster images

From the Yorkshire Post, 9 Oct 2006:

WHEN ex-pitman Jim Logan lost his job at a South Yorkshire colliery more than a decade ago he found himself at a loose end. But following an inspirational visit to Cuba and with the help of his GP wife – daughter of miners’ leader Arthur Scargill – he is about to open a pioneering 3m health centre in the former mining community of Kendray, outside Barnsley. The centre, which Mr Logan will manage, is dedicated to helping rebuild the mining community, devastated by the closure of numerous pits in the area. It will be the first of its kind in the country, and it is hoped it will pave the way for others to follow.

It will be the first of its kind in the country, and it is hoped it will pave the way for others to follow. Mr Logan was formerly in charge of hundreds of men as underground manager at Barnsley’s Grimethorpe colliery – famed for its brass band and as setting for the award-winning film Brassed Off.

The pit was the heart of the community, generations of men working there year after year. But when mine after mine began closing across the country in the 1980s and 1990s, the miners at Grimethorpe knew it was only a matter of time before they too were doomed. And 13 years ago the pit finally shut its doors, leaving Mr Logan, 51, and hundreds of other men out of work.

At first Mr Logan, whose wife is Dr Margaret Scargill, 43, daughter of Arthur Scargill, the man who led Britain’s miners in their strike against pit closures in 1984-85, transferred his management skills from the mining industry to the National Health Service. He carried out a number of projects for Barnsley Health Authority, including setting up a practice managers’ group and a management training project for Sheffield and Barnsley which is still in operation today.

He also became manager at Ashville Medical Centre in Barnsley, where he met his future wife.

They married, had two sons and live in a farmhouse between Barnsley and Wakefield, where Mr Logan farms 14 acres, raising a few animals including sheep and goats. See the source imageBut his passion was to build a health centre to help rebuild devastated mining communities. He said: “I am a 51-year- old Kendray lad who worked underground from the age of 15. I left school with no qualifications and worked my way through the NCB training programmes to finally achieve the position of underground manager at Grimethorpe colliery.

“The unfortunate and premature closure of the mining industry meant the end of my ambition to become manager of my own mine.” Working in primary health care led Mr Logan to develop a vision of how the needs of the former mining communities around Barnsley could be met. Many were, and are, in a desperate state. Social problems such as drug and alcohol abuse multiplied once the pits had been taken from the communities. Mr Logan knew there had to be changes, with health and social care being provided together, so he began to look at other models – including foreign countries.

He and eminent British cardiologist Walter Rhoden travelled to Cuba where its health care system is recognised as not only the best of any country in the third world, but also better in some aspects than some services in the developed world.

There the authorities had developed a network of “polyclinics”, or one-stop shops, an idea he brought back to Kendray. At the root of the project is a belief in the need to unite provision of health and social care. He took proposal to amalgamate the two care sectors to Barnsley Health Service and Barnsley Council Social Services Department. But this was turned down, department chiefs saying budgets must remain separate. Undeterred, he went ahead and drew up plans for such a centre, deciding to field the project himself. Throughout the development of the plan he worked closely with the six doctors and staff who were to work at the centre, including his own wife. Once it was complete he sought and won the funding.See the source image

Now it has turned been turned into a reality providing chiropody, dental services, ophthalmology, pharmacy, dietetics, midwives, community psychiatric services, and physiotherapy. It will open for the first time this Thursday, and will serve the populations of the former mining communities of Kendray, Stairfoot, Ardsley, and parts of Barnsley town centre, Worsborough and Lunwood.

On 9 April 2008, BBC News online reported this:

Funeral set for US crash doctors

Dr Kathryn Phipps and Dr Walter Rhoden

Books of condolence have been opened at Dr Phipps’ GP surgery

A date has been set for the funeral of a heart expert and his GP wife who were killed in a motorbike accident during a holiday in Florida.

Dr Walter Rhoden, 47, a consultant cardiologist at Barnsley Hospital, and Dr Kathryn Phipps, 45, died as they were thrown from the bike on 30 March.

The funeral service will be held at 1330 BST on Monday, 14 April at Wentworth Church.

It will be followed by a private cremation for friends and family only.

The couple’s three children, teenagers Jamie, Emily and Olivia, all under 17 years old, were at the hotel in Orlando where they were staying with their parents at the time of the accident.

This world has truly lost two wonderful people who were an inspiration to every one working in the medical profession
Jayne Dolman, colleague and patient

The couple, from Hoyland, Barnsley, died at the scene of the crash on the State Road A1A in North Volusia County after they collided with a truck which pulled out in front of them, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

A website, set up in memory of the couple by their families, features tributes left by more than 100 colleagues and patients.

Dr Andrew Mowat, who worked with Dr Phipps, said: “I can’t remember ever meeting anyone as enthusiastic and dynamic, and we are all – medicine, general practice, patients and people alike – the worse off for her loss.”

Jayne Dolman said she had worked with Dr Rhoden for “many years”, and he was also her cardiologist.

She said: “He saved my father’s life. For this I will be eternally grateful.

“This world has truly lost two wonderful people who were an inspiration to everyone working in the medical profession. My thoughts are with all the family at this very, very sad time.”

Barnsley is a seriously disadvantaged area and Grimesthorpe was in 2006 ranked as one of the very poorest districts in the UK. The MP for Barnsley, 1953-87, was Labour’s Roy Mason. I haven’t paid as much attention to Roy Mason on this blog as I should have; he features a lot in Richard Crossman’s Diaries, 1968-70, when Crossman was DHSS Secretary (and at the top of the security services) and doing everything possible to assist Gwynne and Dafydd. Mason was very close to Harold Wilson when Wilson was PM; Crossman grumbles about Mason and Harold having secret meetings from which other senior Labour figures were excluded.

Roy Mason, Baron Mason of Barnsley, was born in Royston, West Riding of Yorkshire and grew up in Carlton, Barnsley, also in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Mason went down the mines at the age of 14 and became a branch official of the NUM in his early 20s. Aged 26 Mason studied at the LSE as a mature student on a TUC scholarship. Thus Mason was part of the group of LSE graduates at that time who became active in politics, many of whom were advisers to the post-war Labour Gov’ts and involved with the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Lord Gnome was an LSE graduate and taught there at an earlier time, but remained involved with the LSE, as were some of Gnome’s family.

Roy Mason remained in the coal industry until he was elected as MP for Barnsley in 1953. Mason was Labour Party Spokesman on Home Affairs, Defence and Post Office, 1960–64; Minister of State at the Board of Trade, 1964–67. Minister of Defence (Equipment), 1967–68. Minister of Power, 1968–69. President of the Board of Trade, 1969–70. Secretary of State for Defence, 1974–76 and most famously Secretary of State for N Ireland, 1976–79, during some of the worst of the Troubles, while Kincora Boys Home was still open and being used by an elite paedophile ring directly linked to Gwynne et al and alleged to include Anthony Blunt, Lord Mountbatten and Enoch Powell.

Whatever the facts or otherwise re the VIPS involved with Kincora, Roy Mason presided over grim happenings, abuses of Gov’t power and miscarriages of justice in N Ireland. Kincora was closed in 1980 because of a series of scandals involving the staff, who definitely were grossly abusing the boys. One of Dafydd’s mates from the Maudsley was a Top Doc advising on the interrogation/torture of suspects in N Ireland and also doubled up as a Top Doc giving evidence re the trauma suffered by detainees, the detainees having no idea re the degree of dishonesty to which he had resorted to minimise the evidence of their injury.

In spite of all the guff talked about the Clever Psychological Methods used by this lot, there weren’t any; they simply facilitated the beatings, mock executions, sexual assaults and occasionally murders of targets. Experts they were not. When caught they forged documentation, perjured themselves and bribed or blackmailed other people to lie. I have 10,000 documents that demonstrate this but whoops no-one in authority will communicate with me now they know that I have these documents.

Roy Mason Moved On from the mess in N Ireland that was concealed by every effort possible ever after. Nothing near the truth has been told even today.

Mason’s appointment to N Ireland was unexpected and seemed to indicate a tougher response from the British Gov’t than that pursued by his predecessor, Merlyn Rees. Rees was born in south Wales and represented a Leeds constituency; he too was an LSE graduate of the same era as Mason. Rees was a school teacher before he went into politics. Rees was also Home Secretary and was at the centre of the cover-ups re the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. When the Jillings Report was completely suppressed in 1996 on the advice of Cherie and Miranda’s friend Michael Beloff QC, acting as legal adviser for Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council as well as the North Wales Police, one Lord Merlyn-Rees was a Director of Municipal Mutual.

Merlyn Rees’s name was never mentioned amidst the condemnation of Municipal Mutual’s activities in the Commons by Those Who Cared, including a Shocked Rhodri Morgan who tabled an Early Day Motion Condemning Municipal Mutual – which was signed by a great many others who were Shocked and Disgusted and Cared. See post ‘The Aftermath Of The Jillings Report – In Parliament’. NB. I wrote that blog post soon after I began this blog before I had put together much of the evidence that makes it overwhelmingly clear that every MP and peer in Parliament knew at least something about the Gang and their emissaries. I try hard not to make assumptions about people so although I was being told at the time ‘They ALL knew what was happening in north Wales’, when I wrote those early posts I did take the view that while some people eg. Ann Clwyd, were weak and silly on some matters, at least she’d tried to initiate discussion in the House on the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal… Looking at the dates of those attempts to discuss matters and the EDMs of the Shocked and Disgusted, sadly one thing is clear: that lot feared that the game was soon going to be up See the source imageand they were getting in there with the We Didn’t Knows before they were all covered in slurry…

I am intrigued as to why, now that this blog has built up a readership, there is still no discussion in the media about Denbigh. BBC News online has another feature today on Aston Hall Hospital in Derbyshire, re the appalling Mad Psychiatrist Kenneth Milne, who’s presence did much to assist the ring in Derbyshire. Milne was clearly dreadful, but I don’t think that he was quite as bad as Gwynne and Dafydd. Someone is letting us know about Kenneth Milne but not about Gwynne and Dafydd…

Ann Clwyd was so Shocked and Disgusted that she had tried to ask questions in the House on matters Jillings Report but was silenced by George Thomas’s mate Speaker Betty Boothroyd, which was probably just as well for Ann because she knew a great deal about the Gang. Ann was born at Denbigh (although her wiki entry now states Ruthin, until I began blogging about her Ann’s wiki entry always stated her place of birth to be Denbigh), grew up in Flintshire, went to Holywell Grammar School, the Queen’s School, Chester and studied at UCNW. Ann then worked for BBC Wales as a studio manager, before becoming Welsh correspondent for the Guardian and Observer See the source imagenewspapers during 1964–79. Norah Beloff, aunty of Michael Beloff QC, worked as a journo for Reuters and then for ‘The Observer’ for many years; Norah’s husband also worked for the ‘The Observer’. Norah’s brother Lord Max Beloff was a friend of both Thatch and Ioan Bowen Rees. Their sister biochemist Lady Anne Beloff-Chain was the wife of Nobel winning biochemist Sir Ernst Chain. In 1986, Lady Anne left Imperial College with her team to move to the University of Buckingham, which had been established by, among others, Lord Max Beloff. Thatch served as Chancellor of the University of Buckingham. See eg. ‘The International Language Of Screaming’ and other posts…

Lady Anne’s move to Buckingham University – she was asked to set up a new Biochem Dept there – was funded by the Clore Foundation, a charidee established by Sir Charles Clore, one of Christine Keeler’s customers. See the source image Sir Charles’s daughter Dame Viv Duffield inherited her dad’s huge fortune and took over the management of the charidee which became the Duffield Foundation. Dame Viv married John Duffield, a City financier who eventually became a tax exile; John was the son of John Elwes Duffield (1910-2009), a psychiatrist who knew the Gang. In later life, the Dame became the long-term mistress of Sir Jocelyn Stevens, See the source imagethe multiply Royal-connected owner of the Express. See previous posts for their extensive network and the many causes that have been bankrolled by Dame Viv.See the source image

The University of Buckingham has certainly had some interesting Chancellors; I have covered the Chancellor of the University of Buckingham in detail in previous posts, so I’ll just revisit the essentials here. Since 2014, the Chancellor of the University has been the Hon. Tessa, Lady Keswick. The immediate past-Chancellor is Sir Martin Jacomb, Chairman of Canary Wharf Group, and Share PLC (in Aylesbury), and the Director of other companies including Oxford Playhouse Trust. Jacomb was Chairman of Prudential from 1995 to 2000 and has retired from the Boards of Rio Tinto Group and Marks & Spencer.

Canary Wharf was built as a result of deals with the Borough Councils who had previously been in business with Gwynne and Dafydd and the ‘investors’ in Canary Wharf were the City financiers who had been the Big Bucks but behind the Gang’s international trafficking ring. See eg. ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’ and ‘International Finance, With Thanks To Gwynne’.

My post ‘The Price Is Right’ detailed my adventure with the Prudential in 1989, which I have been told was another Gang-backed event. Rio Tinto owned Anglesey Aluminium, for years one of the biggest employers on Anglesey; Liz Stables, the Angel who arrived in the UNCW Student Health Centre in 1983 and who was Wood, Gwynne and Dafydd’s partner in crime had been lured from her previous job as the Angel at Anglesey Aluminium; I was never quite sure why, because Liz spent a lot of time maintaining that her previous job at Anglesey Aluminium was a much better deal that that provided by UCNW and Wood was always doing battle with the authorities at UCNW on Liz’s behalf for extra dosh etc. Liz remained on very good terms with her old mates at Anglesey Aluminium, they were always dropping in, phoning her up at work etc…

M&S had a very cosy relationship with the Gang and even bankrolled the grand building in Belgravia that the Royal College of Psychiatrists acquired as their HQ when the Royal College was first established in 1972 with Ken Rawnsley as the first Dean,See the source imageSee the source image although it was Dafydd’s mate Sir Martin Roth who negotiated the deal with M&S. Lord Sieff must have been fond of the Gang because his widow became involved with a number of charitable ventures led by the Gang, as discussed in previous posts. I suspect that John and Vincent Marks, Leaders Of The Medical Establishment, may have been descended from the original Marks of M&S. See previous posts.

Two Role Models who have been happy to promote M&S Ladies Wear: I must warn Lady Sandra Howard not to wear this outfit anywhere near Gwynne and Dafydd; it was the penchant that Brown and I had for Black Leather when we were younger that gave the Gang ideas (or at least that was the excuse, but I doubt that the 12 yr old boys Taken Into Care and then gang-banged by George Thomas, Peter Morrison et al were wearing Black Leather) and resulted in them trying to murder me when I refused to join Gwynne’s Royal Brothel.

Former Chancellors of the University of Buckingham have included Thatch who retired in 1999, and Gang umbrella for his entire life, before passing on the Duties Of Gang Protection to his children and even grandchildren, Lord Hailsham of St Marylebone. Lord Tanlaw was appointed to succeed Sir Martin Jacomb as Chancellor in May 2010; he stepped down in 2013.

To return to Ann Clwyd. Ann was Vice-Chair of the Arts Council of Wales, 1975–79. She is a member of the NUJ and TGWU, as was Rhodri. The Gen Sec of the TGWU was Richard Crossman’s mate Lord Jack Jones, who doubled up as a mate of Gwynne and Dafydd’s and is alleged to have been a KGB double agent. See previous posts. Ann’s husband Owen Dryhurst Roberts was the son of a Headmaster at Newborough on Anglesey and also became a journo, ending up as a big wig in TV, in particular S4C. In 1970 Ann Clwyd stood as the Labour candidate for Denbigh, after being encouraged by Plaid’s Prof Hywel Teifi Edwards, Huw Edwards’s dad, who wanted to promote Wimmin MPs, but only Wimmin MPs who could be relied upon to keep schtum about the thousands of victims of the Gang – Wimmin and men – banged up in Denbigh.

Ann was another of the Labour Party’s Strong Women who championed women’s causes without ever mentioning the unlawful refusal to give girls/women in north Wales NHS terminations while the same Top Docs referred anyone on demand to the dangerous private abortionist in Chester for a fee (see ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf!’), the unlawful abduction of newborns by the Gang, let alone the mass organised sexual abuse and associated criminality.

Ann served as the MP for Abercynon, 1984-2019 and the MEP for Mid and West Wales, 1979-84. When the coast was clear and the lid nailed down on the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal in terms of the North Wales Police investigation into a possible paedophile ring in north Wales and Cheshire having ended on 4 Sept 1992 ‘with criminal proceedings being over’ on that date, concluding that there was no evidence at all of any such ring, Ann went public on a number of statements she had in her possession from boys who had been in children’s homes in north Wales some years previously. Ann made her Disgust public at their accounts of being forced to have sex with animals and filmed for porn.

Indeed Ann, Dafydd joked to me about me having sex with animals Ann Clwyd winning her seat in 1984as well as with him, the security services were bugging my phone at the time and weeks later I was in the High Court because Dafydd’s colleagues the Drs Francis had perjured themselves again. Dafydd and Gwynne were having a Giggle over bestiality, gang rape et al while you were living down the road from Denbigh as a girl Ann, when you stood for Denbigh in 1970, all through those years when you and your husband didn’t report on any matters Dafydd and Gwynne at all, but constantly repeated your support for Wimmin, Socialism, the NHS, CND etc.

Among Ann’s many highlights included her membership of the Royal Commission on the National Health Service 1976–79, Chaired by nuclear physicist and Gang-associate Sir Alec Merrison. This Royal Commission was established by Battling Babs Castle and her side-kick Dr Death as a result of Babs’s battle with the Top Docs over pay beds in the NHS. Babs, being a Strong Woman who didn’t take any crap from Men or Supporters Of Private Medicine,  told the world that she would rid the NHS of pay beds (carefully not letting on that Babs had utilised the delights of private medicine herself) and thus Babs and Dr Death appointed Sir Alec Merrison to Chair the Royal Commission which as one of its tasks would review pay beds. Babs put the rumour around that she and Dr Death had selected Merrison as Chair because Merrison was sympathetic to the NHS. The truth was that Merrison was mates with Gwynne and Dafydd et al and there was no way that the Top Docs were going to allow their money-spinner to stop, so Babs timed the Royal Commission such that she knew that by the time Gwynne’s friend Merrison reported back with his recommendations, Sunny Jim would have been voted out See the source imageand it would be Thatch’s problem. This is what happened and the system of private practice within the NHS was twiddled but it certainly didn’t disappear.

Ann Clwyd is Vice-Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Coalfield Communities.

See previous posts for more details re Ann and her husband Owen.

An interesting gem:

This is allegedly ‘a letter from Meic Stephens to Ann Clwyd MP’. [There is also a Meic Stevens, a musician.] I know of Meic Stephens principally as the man who wrote toadying obituaries of Gang members/accessories for the Indie, flagging up the noble qualities and love of Wales for at least some deceased people whom I know to have been complete scumbags in the eyes of both Welsh people and Englishers. Here’s the gen on Meic as provided by his wiki entry:

Meic Stephens (23 July 1938-2 July 2018) was a Welsh literary editor, journalist, translator and poet. Stephens was born in 1938 in the village of Treforest, near Pontypridd, in Glamorgan. He studied at Aberystwyth University, Bangor University and at the University of Rennes in Brittany. From 1962-66 he taught French at Ebbw Vale in Monmouthshire. In Merthyr Tydfil he established the Triskel Press and in 1965 he began the periodical, Poetry Wales. He learnt Welsh as an adult, and became a member of Cymdeithas yr Iaith Cymraeg and of Plaid Cymru. From 1967-90, Stephens was literature director of the Welsh Arts Council. Before retiring he was Professor of Welsh Writing in English at the University of Glamorgan. He was a visiting Professor in the English department of Brigham Young University (USA). He wrote many articles about literature in Wales for the newspaper, the Western Mail, and obituaries of eminent Welsh people for The Independent newspaper. He took a particular interest in the life and work of Rhys Davies, the novelist and short story writer, and served as secretary of the Rhys Davies Trust, which promoted the writing of short fiction in Wales.

A few months before his death, he was awarded an honorary fellowship at his former university, Aberystwyth, whence he graduated in 1961. He and his wife Ruth had four children – Lowri, Heledd, Brengain and Huw. His son Huw Stephens is a radio presenter. Stephens is credited as the first person to create the Cofiwch Dryweryn graffiti near Llanrhystyd, Ceredigion. This has come to be regarded as an unofficial ‘national landmark’ commemorating Capel Celyn, a Welsh speaking village near Bala that was destroyed by the construction of the Llyn Celyn reservoir.

Re the document sent to Ann Clwyd written by Meic Stephens; it’s intriguing not only because Ann is not someone who is readily identified with the matters under discussion (Welsh language and identity as conceptualised by Meic and his crowd in the 1970s), but for other reasons as well. The document has a 1970s official ‘received’ stamp on it, yet the handwriting at the top provides a 1981 date; Ann did not become an MP until 1984, yet whoever has written the 1981 date has also written Ann’s name as the recipient and put the letters AS after her name (the Welsh language abbreviation for MP). So in 1981 someone sent Ann a document originally sent to somebody else in the 1970s, but addressed to her as an MP three years before she was an MP. See the source image

Is this document, like some of those sent to MPs and others about me, a forgery in some way? Because nothing about it adds up. A quick perusal of the internet however does demonstrate that Ann is quite a one for suddenly beginning a high profile campaign or Taking A Stand on matters that she has previously ignored for many years… Obviously if one does that, it would be helpful to refer to documents that one remembers receiving from Concerned People years ago, to demonstrate how tirelessly one has been concerning oneself with this matter…

Ann Clwyd received a kicking just a few years ago for daring to denounce the NHS re the dreadful circumstances under which her husband died in University College Hospital. I was very glad indeed that she did that. She then received another kicking when she accepted David Cameron’s invitation to review the NHS; I was one of those who wrote to Ann and thanked her for daring to publicly speak about how bloody dreadful the NHS often is. At the time, I was keeping a low profile after the guns at dawn business and the dear old NHS had made me destitute all over again. There was much on the internet about Ann Clwyd’s sumptuous lifestyle, her car, her materialism etc. I have no idea of her personal circumstances so I’m not going to comment. I maintain that I am still very glad that Ann spoke out about her husband’s death. But Ann, where were you for all those years when you knew what was happening to us? Does it only matter when the NHS is so bloody bad that it clobbers Nice People?

Once again I stress that I do understand that people may be frightened taking on a cartel of Top Docs who have metamorphosed into gangsters. It was the active and wilful slander and libel of my friends and I that I find inexcusable. Ann’s former boss the Windbag and his wife received forged documentation and tittle tattle about me from a Top Doc involved with serious crime. Come on then Labour Party oldies, you all seem to have known about this. Was there not one of you who wondered what sort of Top Doc was sending you confidential info about a patient – even if you were too dim to realise that it might have been forged or even just made up – and whether you should have raised concerns about his conduct?

This is why I am refusing to co-operate with police who are now begging me to make a formal complaint to Bring Them To Justice. Here’s my response Hypocrites Of The Nation:See the source image

YOU DIDN’T WANT TO KNOW. YOU INSULTED US, YOU LIBELLED AND SLANDERED US, YOU DROVE US OUT OF OUR JOBS, OUR HOUSES, YOU FLEECED US, YOU EVEN ATTACKED PEOPLE WHO DARED SUPPORT US.  Don’t pretend that you are now Sorry. The Pink Blancmange and the Sisters won’t even reply to e mails in which I have provided the names and details re Top Docs working in Wales right now who are guilty of serious offences. I was told yesterday that ‘the trouble is that Adrian Bell has not yet been arrested’. I couldn’t give a stuff. I needed someone to ask Bell what he thought he was doing in 1983 and 84, not now. I can’t quite understand why no-one else can understand that after all this, I really don’t want the Empathy, the Support, the Sympathy, of such vile, stupid, shallow people who now want to make capital out of me! I’d like my money though. Money for the porn and compensation for being knowingly left at the hands of gangsters and left to die… Brown was cheated out of his house, F lost everything, including his baby…

How about it Theo Huckle QC?? Reparation to every Empowered Service User who’s lives were ruined because they didn’t want to shag Gwynne and Dafydd?

If anyone wants to put Theo and his High Court Judge mates on trial I would be interested. But no-one wants that.

Ann’s predecessor as MP for the Cynon Valley was Ioan Lyonel Evans. Ioan Evans was born in Llanelli, as was Mandy Rice-Davies and Lord Elwyn-Jones. Jim Griffiths was Labour MP for Llanelli, 5 April 1936-18 June 1970. Griffiths was the corrupt old fart whom Harold Wilson appointed as the first Secretary of State for Wales, 18 October 1964-5 April 1966, after the Welsh Office was established. Previous posts discuss Jim Griffiths in details. The basics: Jim was born in the predominantly Welsh-speaking village of Betws, near Ammanford in Carmarthenshire; Prof Eric Sunderland came from Ammanford. Jim helped establish a branch of the ILP in Ammanford in 1908 and became its Secretary, subsequently becoming Secretary of the Ammanford Trades Council (1916–1919). Jim attended the Central Labour College, London at the same time as Nye and Morgan Phillips, the father of future Labour Party Strong Woman and Gang facilitator Gwyneth Dunwoody. Jim Griffiths worked as Llanelli Labour Party agent (1922–1925), before becoming an agent for the Anthracite Miners’ Association (1925–1936), and President of the South Wales Miners’ Federation – ‘the Fed’ – (1934–1936). Jim served in Atlee’s Gov’t and knew Lord Gnome, my distant relative by marriage. Jim introduced the Family Allowances Act 1945, the National Insurance Act 1946 and the National Assistance and Industrial Injuries Act 1948. Along with Nye, Jim Griffiths was one of the chief architects of the Welfare State. Griffiths served as Chairman of the Labour Party (1948–1949) and was Secretary of State for the Colonies, 28 February 1950-26 October 1951. In opposition, Griffiths became Deputy Leader of the Labour Party (1955–1959) and Spokesman on Welsh Affairs. Jim used his good relationship with Hugh Gaitskell to commit the Labour Party to a measure of devolution. At Wilson’s instigation, in 1964 Jim Griffiths established the Welsh Office and laid the foundations for the role until the 1966 General Election, whereupon Griffiths returned to the backbenches.

Ioan Evans was educated at Llanelli Grammar School and the University College of Wales, Swansea. Evans served on the West Bromwich Education Committee and in 1955 and 1959 acted as the Labour agent for the General Elections for the Birmingham Small Health Labour MP William Wheeldon, 1952-60. Ioan Evans was Secretary of Birmingham and District Co-operative Party.

Evans was first elected to Parliament in the 1964 for Birmingham Yardley. From 2 May 1966 to 26 September 1966, Evans was a substitute member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. From 1968 to 1970 Ioan Evans was Comptroller of the Household in Wilson’s Gov’t. Evans lost his seat in 1970 to the Tory Derek Coombs

Derek Michael Coombs Devastated: Adam's father, former Tory MP Derek Coombs(12 August 1937-30 December 2014) was Tory MP for Birmingham Yardley, 1970-74, when he lost to Labour’s Sydney Tierney. Coombs married twice, first, in, 1959 in Sutton Coldfield, to the elder sister Patricia (b. Leeds North, 1930) of Peter O’Toole, by whom he had two sons, Sian (b. 1967) and Fiann (b. 1968.) Coombs is survived by his second wife, actress Jennifer Lonsdale, mother of his sons Jack and Adam, see below.

On 28 May 2010 Coomb’s son Adam, having just left Bryanston School, in Dorset died of an accidental drug overdose in India in the Himalayan village of Manali while on his gap year, before he was due to begin a degree at Manchester University.

For the last 11 years of his life, Coombs suffered from progressive dementia. Coombs was a very wealthy man and lived at Stepleton House, his estate near Iwerne Courtney in Dorset and in Chelsea.

When Paddy Pantsdown left his job with the security services in Geneva to move to the West Country Cunningly Disguised as someone who Wanted To Work With Yoof before becoming the Liberal MP for Yeovil, he was a youth worker in Dorset. Rob Evans, Lucille’s right-hand psychopath in Gwynedd Social Services from 1983/84, had previously worked as a Team Leader in Dorset, after Qualifying at Leicester University and then working in Northampton, a la Frank Beck. I always considered Dorset rather twee and full of affluent retirees in thatched cottages when I lived in Somerset, but it seems that there was a bit of action in Dorset.

Lisa Nandy’s granddad Lord Frank Byers who gallantly defended Mr Thrope and hurled abuse at Norman Scott when Norman raised the matter of Mr Thrope’s criminal activities with him was the MP for North Dorset, 1945-50. Other Interesting Facts about Lord Frank:  he was a Director of Rio Tinto Zinc, 1962–73 – think Anglesey Aluminium everyone – and he died from a heart attack on 6 February 1984. I encountered Gwynne either days before 4 Feb 1984 or days after. Or it may even have been on 4 Feb… But then Lisa’s dad Dipak Nandy was in the thick of those we know and love, including for a long time at Leicester University.

Lisa talks a lot in a northern accent about being an Asian Woman, but she never mentions that she had a Sir Bufton of a granddad with West Country connections. As did I, but I don’t pretend to be a Northern Asian Woman. I was listening to Lisa a few days ago on Radio 4 and she was banging on in her Northern way and said ‘Eeh up, we’re talking skin here’. And I thought Christ, Lisa is trying to appeal to a nation with millions of normal people who would just be utterly baffled by the phrase ‘talking skin’. The electorate aren’t Uncle Harry’s nephews Lisa! They won’t know what on earth you’re talking about if you use phrases like ‘talking skin’, even if you do it in a Northern Accent a la the ‘Not the Nine O Clock News’ spoof of Professional Northerners, ‘See All Hear All Say Nowt/Eat All Drink All Pay Nowt/And If Ever Thou Does Owt For Nowt/Do It On Prime TV In A Northern Accent’.Image result for michael parkinson images

David Coombs, who once tried to buy the New Statesman, was Chairman of Prospect magazine founded in 1995 by Coombs and by former Financial Times journalist David Goodhart, who edited it. Coombs pumped £350,000 into the venture and had a regular column “Chairman’s Corner” until 2005. In 2008, George Robinson, a Director of hedge fund Sloane Robinson Investment Management, and Peter Hall, of boutique fund manager Hunter Hall, each acquired 26% of the title after Coombs, the magazine’s Chairman and largest shareholder, sold his 40% stake.

Following the mid-1990s Great War as declared by the Gang (assisted by ‘The Guardian’) on Graham Day at Bangor University, in which Nerys who subsequently married Merfyn was caught in the crossfire, Nerys wrote a couple of articles for ‘Prospect’. In one article she dared mention that there might be a problem at Bangor University with the sexual exploitation of students by staff. Nerys wasn’t over the top in the article, she was remarkably low key re her concerns and they were mentioned in passing in the context of an article about sexism in/the sexualisation of the workplace. The Gang Never Forgot…

See eg. ‘Badlands’, ‘Death Shall Have No Dominion’, ‘Lest We Forget’, ‘The Wizard War’ and other posts for the crap that rained down on the heads of Nerys, Merfyn and Graham for Ever After.

 

The Coombs family still owns the Bank and Insurance provider S & U plc, which specialises in pay-day loans and motor insurance for people with poor credit rating. Derek Coombs receives an estimated payment of around £120,000 per annum from the company in lieu of a pension arrangement. S&U operates under the LoansAtHome4U and Advantage Finance brands, and the Coombs family still has influence. The Coombs family further holds stakes in Metalrax.

Following his electoral defeat by Derek Coombs in 1970, Ioan Evans became Director of the International Defence and Aid Fund. Ioan re-entered Parliament in February 1974 for Aberdare. Ioan was appointed PPS to that key Gang member, Secretary of State for Wales John Morris (see previous posts for details of Morris’s facilitation of the Gang’s crimes over many, many years), but Ioan resigned in late 1974 due to his opposition to the Labour Party’s policy on Welsh devolution. Evans ‘feared that devolution would lead to the centralization of local gov’t authority in Cardiff, as well as the appointment of an additional 1300 civil servants’. Ioan’s chief objection, however, was to the additional costs of devolution. Unlike so many soothsayers who’s palms are crossed with silver, Ioan Evans’s worst fears were borne out.See the source image

Eventually, Ioan Evans was one of six Labour MPs to oppose devolution in the referendum of 1979, when the Gov’t proposals were heavily defeated; the others were Ifor Davies (the step great-uncle of AM Huw Irranca-Davies), See the source imageDonald Anderson, Alfred Evans, Leo Abse and the Windbag, as discussed in ‘News From Sicily’.

Leo Abse was a bent lawyer from south Wales, a valued Gang member and a close mate of George Thomas who bribed, blackmailed and threatened witnesses of Thomas’s crimes into silence. Abse’s brother Wilfred was a psychiatrist pal of Gwynne’s who emigrated to the US in the early 1960s and held senior academic posts in US universities; other brother Dannie was the Top Doc and poet. Dannie reigned over Ogmore, the constituency for which Irranca-Davies has served as MP and now serves as AM. Leo was the Brains behind the Cunning Plan to frame me for a serious offence and imprison me shortly after the June 1987 General Election, me having made such Wicked Allegations about his mate Gwynne and then Gwynne’s mates who decided that I could be intimidated, wrongly arrested, unlawfully detained in psych units… If the crooked old tosser was still alive I’d be happy to tell him that I don’t respond positively to such techniques. The result of Leo’s Cunning Plan and Tony Francis doing deals with Tories who knew people who knew my friends and I, while playing off the Labour Party as well and sending documentation – including forged – to the Windbag’s Office:See the source image

A Goal There For Leo And the Boys!!

Although the Windbag was on the No To Devolution side of the Labour Party in 1979, Windbags’ family friend Cledwyn Hughes, MP for Anglesey, 1951-79, was most enthusiastic about a Welsh Parliament. Cledwyn and his mate rotten egg Jim Griffiths See the source imagehad been begging for such an institution for years. While Rotten Jim was Welsh Secretary, rigging the new Welsh Office for the benefit of a gang of sex offenders, Cledwyn was serving as Harold’s Minister of State for Commonwealth Relations, considered to be “one of the Gov’t’s outstanding successes”. During Cled’s two years in post he was heavily involved with decolonization and represented the British Gov’t at the independence celebrations of Malta, Kenya and the Gambia. Cled’s negotiating skills were tested by conflicts within the Commonwealth, notably in Cyprus, Malaysia and the Indian sub-continent where Cled negotiated a cease-fire between India and Pakistan following a military conflict in the Rann of Kutch during June 1965. Cled was also involved in negotiations to avert a unilateral declaration of independence in Southern Rhodesia. In July 1965, Cled visited Salisbury for talks with Ian Smith, but these were unsuccessful and Smith declared UDI in November 1965.See the source imageImage result for peter hain images

In 1966, Harold appointed Cled as Welsh Secretary, in which role his Minister of State was George Thomas… GT was 100% hostile to the Welsh language and other matters that are usually embraced by enthusiastic devolutionists. Cled became a friend of the Windbag via the Windbag’s fruity wife’s family; the Windbag met Fruity Glenys when they were students at Cardiff – which was how Tony Francis knew the Windbag – and it was Cled who introduced the Young Thick Windbag to Labour big wigs, including Sunny Jim. How poor old Cled felt about the Windbag taking such a hostile view to devolution in the Big Referendum of 1979 I don’t know, but Cled was thrown overboard by the Labour Party in 1979. In late 1978 Cled had been again despatched as an envoy to Rhodesia, See the source imageseeking to accelerate the handover of power to the majority population, but as in 1965, Cled made little headway in persuading Ian Smith to co-operate; Cled also failed to persuade Joshua Nkomo to give up the armed struggle. Cled was hugely disappointed by the decisive referendum vote on 1 March 1979 against devolution for Wales held on 1 March 1979. Weeks later, Cled stood down from his Anglesey seat and was succeeded as Labour candidate by his close ally, another loyal Gang member, Elystan Morgan.

Cled had suffered another big disappointment in 1968 when Harold moved him from the Welsh Office to become Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. Cled was disappointed to leave the Welsh Office, not least because he had done much preparatory work for the investiture of Carlo, scheduled for 1969, which included sending a monthly letter on Welsh affairs to Carlo, then at Trinity College, Cambridge. George Thomas took over as Welsh Secretary from Cled…

However, Cled will have been able to serve the Gang at MAFF; that post brought him into contact with the big landowners who were Of The Gang, including Tories Beata Brookes and Lord Kenyon, and the family of Bishop of Bangor/Archbishop of Wales, Gwilym Williams. An added bonus was that Gwilym Williams had been at Jesus College, Oxford, with Harold Wilson.

Another Trial For Cled was the 1970 General Election; Cled was heavily criticised by Plaid supporters and there were ‘unpleasant scenes’ at the count on Anglesey. I haven’t yet got to the bottom of this; everyone in the equation was on board with the organised abuse, they were all Of The Gang. The Plaid candidate was John Lasarus Williams (29 October 1924-15 June 2004), known as John L, who was born in Llangoed on Anglesey, but lived most of his life in nearby Llanfairpwllgwyngyll. In his youth, John L was a keen footballer and he also worked as a teacher. His activism started when he campaigned against the refusal of Brewer Spinks, an employer in Blaenau Ffestiniog, to permit his staff to speak Welsh. This inspired John L to become a founder of Undeb y Gymraeg Fyw, and through this organisation was the main organiser of Sioe Gymraeg y Borth (the Welsh show for Menai Bridge). John L was a long-serving Gwynedd County Councillor. Gwynedd CC ran the Social Services on Anglesey as well; it was under the old Local Authority structure, pre-1973/74, that Anglesey SS enjoyed different management from Caernarfonshire CC. This was used as a defence by the hopeless old offenders at the Waterhouse Inquiry. Ronnie Waterhouse didn’t mention that such was the nature of the Corrupt Incestuous Nepotistic Shithouse that they had all conspired and colluded for decades, played music chairs re jobs and responsibilities and some of them had migrated between different political parties. John L was twice Plaid’s candidate for Anglesey, in 1970 and 1979. The result in 1979 with Elystan The Great standing for Labour and John L standing for Plaid was a Tory win for Keith Best.

John L also worked at Bangor Normal College, an institution run by the Gang (see eg. ‘Thought For The Day’).

Corrupt Incestuous Nepotistic Shithouse stalwart Dafydd Iwan Image result for dafydd iwan albums images stood as the Plaid candidate for Anglesey in Feb and Oct 1974.

See ‘How Much Greater Is A Man Than A Sheep?’ for details of General Elections on Anglesey and the biographies of candidates from all parties.

Following Labour’s 1970 defeat at the hands of Grocer Heath, Cled was not elected to the Shadow Cabinet but kept the Agriculture portfolio. In 1972 Cled was dismissed by Wilson for voting in favour of entry into the Common Market. Cled remained a strong pro-European and was a Vice-President of the umbrella group Britain in Europe during the 1975 referendum. On Labour’s return to office in 1974, Cled was disappointed not to be offered a Ministerial post. However he successfully challenged Ian Mikardo – the hard left East End MP who wasn’t only a Gang member facilitating Gwynne and Dafydd’s partner ring operating out of the London Hospital Image result for wendy savage book imagesSee the source imagebut who also worked for the security services and was widely suspected to have been a double agent, possibly for the KGB  (see previous posts) – for the Chairmanship of the PLP, and held the post throughout the Parliament. In 1976, Wilson resigned suddenly and Cled was tasked as Chairman of the PLP with organizing the election of a successor. Cled was close politically to both Swinging Woy and Sunny Jim Callaghan, whom Cled had first met in 1949 at the home of Fruity Glenys’s parents in Holyhead.

In March 1977, Cledwyn was actively involved in the negotiations that led to the Lib-Lab Pact; it was that which propped up Mr Thrope and once the gaffe was blown on that front, propped up Cyril Smith in the face of an article published by an alternative newspaper in Rochdale about Cyril’s child molesting. David Steel utilised George Carman to ensure that not a word appeared in the national press because Mr Thrope’s Old Bailey trial was approaching and Steel feared that the Liberals would be finished if both matters became public. See previous posts and eg. ‘Man Of Steel’.

We should not forget that at the time, the Liberals were still a powerful force in Wales, Land Of David Lloyd George and of course David L-G’s daughter Megan had been the Liberal MP for Anglesey, 30 May 1929-24 October 1951, preceding Cled. Megan subsequently defected to the Labour Party and served as MP for Carmarthenshire, 28 February 1957-14 May 1966. Megan died in office on 14 May 1966, very unfortunately from cancer; Gwynfor Evans, yet another who’s biography suggests that he too was working for the security services (see previous posts) won the seat, becoming the first Plaid MP to be elected. Megan was MP for Carmarthenshire throughout the Profumo Affair and was one of the Insider witnesses who pegged out in the aftermath. Others included Lord Bill Astor (7 March 1966) and Dorothy Macmillan (21 May 1966). The by-election campaign following Megan death was a dirty fight, Gwynfor maxing out on the row over the flooding of the Welsh speaking village of Capel Celyn near Bala to create the Tryweryn Reservoir that provided drinking water for Liverpool.

Security Services Double Agent Dafydd Dr Dafydd Alun Jones as a med student in Liverpool in the 1950s was part of the Tryweryn campaign and popped over to Ireland to learn violent activist methods at the knee of Republicans. At Liverpool University, Dafydd also made friends with the Liverpool MPs and officials who were showing such insensitivity towards the angry Welsh who opposed Tryweryn and were insulted and abused when they staged a protest march through Liverpool. Just as the British security services supported Dafydd’s Training as a Top Doc to assist and eventually succeed Gwynne the Lobotomist, Dafydd’s MI5 brief was also to infiltrate Plaid AND the Irish Republican activists. It wasn’t the best idea that anyone ever had; here’s Ian Gow’s car after that bomb exploded:See the source image

Friend and adviser to Thatch Ian Gow, Tory MP for Eastbourne, 28 February 1974-30 July 1990, who doubled up as Thatch’s PPS, 4 May 1979-13 June 1983, was a  crooked solicitor who was facilitating (or he may have been active in) the Westminster Paedophile Ring, particularly the part in Brighton, the brothels owned by John Allen to where boys from the children’s homes in north Wales were trafficked  was killed by a car bomb on 30 July 1990. Irish Republicans were blamed but Gow’s assassination was something to do with his involvement in Gwynne and Dafydd’s activities and me. My post ‘An Ealing Comedy’ discusses the events shortly before Gow was killed: An extract from my post ‘The Bitterest Pill’: Sir Peter Morrison was Minister of State for Energy, 11 June 1987-23 July 1990. On July 10 1990, Gwynedd Social Services took me to Court in Chester and attempted to have me imprisoned on numerous charges of breaching the High Court injunction that they had obtained against me in Feb 1990, on the basis of the perjury of two Gwynedd social workers, Keith Fearns and Jackie Brandt. See ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill.’ When I appeared at Chester Court, Fearns, Brandt and their social worker colleague Maggie Fookes, as well as their CPN colleague Bob Ingham [Ingham was a regular at Bangor Golf Club] perjured themselves to such an extent that something like 13 or 14 charges against me were thrown out. The Presiding judge, Justice John Roch – he later became Lord Justice Roch – helpfully asked if they would like more time to rewrite their statements, presumably in order to get their stories straight. Their barrister politely turned down the request, but why I have no idea. My post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ provides details of: the perjury; the forged documents, which included a forged letter from a Top Doc, Carl Littlejohns, who had previously been employed at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh; the collusion of the Welsh Office with Ron Evans, the bent lawyer employed by Gwynedd County Council; and the [last minute] change of judge and Court of which my barrister Suzanne Evans was not told, she was sent to the wrong Court and arrived late and stressed for my case. [See eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter the Arena’ for details of the degree of planning that my documents show was involved in the rigging of the Court and Judge; bent Gwynedd CC solicitor Ron Evans knew all about it and sent detailed instructions to the Four Perjurers to ensure that they arrived at the correct Court in advance to ‘acquaint’ themselves with their signed and sworn in affidavits, which the Four Perjurers had never seen before… Brown noted at the time that he wished that he had the power to nobble judges. No wonder Ron’s lawyer daughter (local talent, nurtured in Llandegfan on Anglesey,  attended Ysgol David Hughes with Aled Jones, D.G.E. Wood’s children, Tony Francis’s children and so many other offspring of the Gang) ended up as a Civil Service mandarin working as Mandy’s right hand aide by 2010. The injunction secured against me by Gwynedd CC in Feb 1990 had been obtained on the basis of the perjury of Gwynedd social workers Keith Fearns and Jackie Brandt; Fearns had never met me and Brandt had met me at most three times; it was stated in the affidavits that I was a danger to Brandt’s life and the lives of her colleagues. See ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’. The injunction was issued at Leeds High Court although all parties lived and worked in Gwynedd/Anglesey, by Sir John Kay – later Lord Justice Kay – a well-known Liverpool based lawyer/judge/public figure, as discussed in previous posts.]See the source imageImage result for his masters voice imagesSee the source image

Suzanne Evans knew that there had obviously been an attempt to rig the trial; she was a young, unknown barrister and after it became clear that industrial scale perjury had been exposed, Roch became very angry with her, rather than the perjurers. He shouted at Suzanne and she was clearly intimidated; as was I, I realised that we were dealing with a madman who was ignoring the obvious lies of four witnesses. Suzanne Evans however has gone on to forge a nice career for herself in the Family Courts having rolled over for a gang of paedophiles (see previous posts), so it was clearly worth it.

On 23 July 1990, Peter Morrison was appointed as PPS to Thatch. On 24 July 1990, administrators at Clwyd Health Authority contacted Andrew Park (the crooked Welsh Office lawyer) Image result for his masters voice imagesSee the source imageSee the source imageOfficial portrait of David Hunt, Baron Hunt of Wirral crop 2.jpgclaiming that I had rung a Kay Hemsley at the North Wales Hospital and threatened an Angel. No-one could produce evidence that I had done this or that if such a call had been received it was me who had made it, so Park wrote to Clwyd Health Authority requesting that next time could Hemsley remember to explain how she knew that it was me calling. Kay followed orders, within a short while she had given a written account of another call supposedly from me and explained that she knew that it was me because she had spoken to me before and recognised my voice. Park had been busy anyway, informing Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities that he wanted as much information as possible, to build up a complete ‘dossier’ against me. The perjury and forging of documents continued apace. See ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’.

Six days later Ian Gow was killed. 

Gow, the son of Alexander Gow, a Top Doc of Harley Street and Bart’s ie. Armstrong-Jones Central See the source image– was MP for Eastbourne; Mary Wynch was in hiding at Eastbourne because after winning cases against the Gang she had still not had a moment’s peace. At some point in 1989, I went to Eastbourne and spent the day with Mary, where we exchanged Dafydd-experiences and Mary showed me some of her documents. We were trailed throughout the day by the security services but I didn’t realise that at the time. See ‘An Ealing Comedy’.

When Thatch was in opposition, Gow was brought onto the Conservative front bench in 1978 to share the duties of Opposition Spokesman on N Ireland with Airey Neave. The two men developed a Conservative policy on Northern Ireland which favoured integration of the province with Great Britain. Neave, like Gow, was a robust supporter of Thatch, worked as her campaign manager during the 1975 Tory Leadership contest (assisted by Peter Morrison) and worked for the security services. On 30 March 1979 Neave was killed by a car bomb a la Gow and Irish Republicans were blamed; again it has been admitted since that it was more likely that Neave was killed because of his role in Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang. They both had knowledge of the VIP ring at Kincora Boys Home in Belfast as well as everything else.

Although later identified with the right-wing of the Tory Party, Gow took a liberal position on Rhodesia; he visited the country at the time of its Unilateral Declaration of Independence See the source image and was subsequently critical of Ian Smith’s white minority regime.

Just a reminder of some World Events during my St George’s Years/Years of numerous High Court cases, preceding and following Ian Gow’s murder:

In 1989, South African State President P.W. Botha suffered a stroke; although Botha would retain the state Presidency, he stepped down as Leader of the National Party, to be replaced by F. W. de Klerk . In a surprise move, Botha invited Mandela to a meeting over tea in July 1989, an invitation that Mandela considered genial. Botha was replaced as State President by de Klerk on 14 Aug 1989. Robert Owen, Robert Bluglass and Colin Berry held the rigged investigation into my complaint about the Gang in July 1989; Bluglass submitted his whitewash of a Report to the Welsh Office and Clwyd and Gwynedd Health Authorities in Aug 1989. Tony Francis had begun orchestrating the Secret Case Conference re me in June 1989, which would conclude in Nov 1989 that I was so murderously dangerous that I should be sent to live with Mr Savile in Broadmoor. In the autumn of 1989, there was a High Court case against me in Cardiff in which the only witness was Jeff Crowther, the Ysbyty Gwynedd Nursing Officer, during which Justice Cocklecarrot made very Mandy Rice-Daviesesque jokes; I was defended by Ian Murphy QC. All documentation and references to this case have disappeared from my files; after the case I went straight to Ysbyty Gwynedd where I attempted, once more, to gain answers. Ella Fisk, the Sister who ran the psych patients’ Day Centre repeatedly asked me if ‘the judge at Cardiff had said anything to me’ other than not jailing me. I was baffled but I remember another Angel saying quietly to Ella ‘they didn’t get it’. After I began this blog I was told that the Gang had submitted numerous Statements From People Who Knew Me – even when I was at school – testifying as to my Insanity and Dangerousness in support of an application to have me detained at Brenda’s pleasure, or at least the first steps towards that. At the time, Somerset Social Services were involved in a business arrangement with Mrs Brady; I have been told that at some point a murder took place that was concealed by Mrs Brady and Somerset Social Services. I have no idea who was killed or when, but I do know that the business arrangement was so obviously dodgy that Brown and I wondered what on earth Bridgwater Social Services were thinking of. These two can explain all:Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

The new State President of South Africa F. W. de Klerk believed that apartheid was unsustainable and released a number of ANC prisoners. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989, de Klerk called his Cabinet together to debate legalising the ANC and freeing Mandela. Although some were deeply opposed to his plans, de Klerk met with Mandela in December to discuss the situation, a meeting both men considered friendly, before legalising all formerly banned political parties in February 1990.

Dame Amanda Yip, daughter of the late Lord Justice John Kay: See the source image

de Klerk also announced Mandela’s unconditional release. Shortly thereafter, for the first time in 20 years, photographs of Mandela were allowed to be published in South Africa.

Leaving Victor Verster Prison on 11 February 1990 – Keith Fearns swore his affidavit of lies re the Gwynedd CC High Court injunction against me on Feb 21 1990 (see ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’) – Mandela held Winnie’s hand – don’t mention Stompie or the necklace killings!! – in front of amassed crowds and the press. Image result for his masters voice images See the source imageThe event was broadcast live across the world. Driven to Cape Town’s City Hall through crowds, Mandela gave a speech declaring his commitment to peace and reconciliation with the white minority, but made it clear that the ANC’s armed struggle was not over and would continue as “a purely defensive action against the violence of apartheid”. Mandela expressed hope that the Gov’t would agree to negotiations, so that “there may no longer be the need for the armed struggle”, and insisted that his main focus was to bring peace to the black majority and give them the right to vote in national and local elections. Staying at Desmond Tutu’s home – Desmond had excellent relations with Wales as a result of Peter Hain’s AAM activities, the 1970s Stop The Tour activism etc See the source imageSee the source imageSee the source image–  in the following days Mandela met with friends, activists, and press, giving a speech to an estimated 100,000 people at Johannesburg’s Soccer City.

Luthuli House in Johannesburg, See the source imageDr Dafydd Alun Joneswhich became the ANC headquarters in 1991. See the source image

Mandela proceeded on an African tour, meeting supporters Dr Dafydd Alun Jonesand politicians in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Libya and Algeria and continuing to Sweden, where Mandela was reunited with Oliver Tambo and London, and where he appeared at the Nelson Mandela: An International Tribute for a Free South Africa concert at Wembley Stadium. Encouraging foreign countries to support sanctions against the apartheid gov’t, in France Mandela was welcomed by President François Mitterrand, in Vatican City by Pope John Paul II, and in the UK by Thatch. Thatch who with husband Denis See the source image had long had investments in apartheid South Africa and denounced Mandela as a terrorist for years before she suddenly came over all understanding. See the source imageIn the US, Mandela met President George H.W. Bush, addressed both Houses of Congress and visited eight cities, being particularly popular among the African-American community. See the source image In Cuba, Mandela became friends with President Castro, whom he had long admired. Mandela met President R. Venkataraman in India, President Suharto in Indonesia, Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad in Malaysia, and Prime Minister Bob Hawke in Australia. Mandela visited Japan, but not the Soviet Union, a longtime ANC supporter. Perhaps Mandela didn’t want to chuck a spoke in Thatch’s plans re the Soviet Union and Gorby…

In May 1990 – in May 1990 I was before Sir (later Lord Justice) Malcolm Pill Image result for sir malcolm pill imagesat the High Court in Cardiff, at the request of Gwynedd Health Authority (see ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’) – Mandela led a multiracial ANC delegation into preliminary negotiations with a Gov’t delegation of 11 Afrikaner men. Mandela impressed them with his discussions of Afrikaner history, and the negotiations led to the Groot Schuur Minute, in which the Gov’t lifted the state of emergency. In August 1990, Mandela – recognising the ANC’s severe military disadvantage – offered a ceasefire, the Pretoria Minute, for which he was widely criticised by MK activists. He spent much time trying to unify and build the ANC, appearing at a Johannesburg conference in December 1990 attended by 1600 delegates, many of whom found him more moderate than expected.  At the ANC’s July 1991 national conference in Durban, Mandela admitted that the ANC had faults and announced his aim to build a “strong and well-oiled task force” for securing majority rule. Oil being the operative word. See the source imageSee the source imageAt the conference, Mandela was elected ANC President, replacing the ailing Tambo, and a 50-strong multiracial, mixed gendered national executive – just like the present day Welsh Assembly Gov’t! See the source imageSee the source imageVaughan Gething 2016.jpg– was elected.

Mandela was given an office in the newly purchased ANC headquarters at Shell House, Johannesburg  and moved into Winnie’s large Soweto home. Their marriage was increasingly strained as Mandela learned of Winnie’s affair with Dali Mpofu, but he supported her during her trial for kidnapping and assault. See the source image Nelson gained funding for her defence from the International Defence and Aid Fund for Southern Africa and from Libyan leader Muammar GaddafiSee the source image but in June 1991 Winnie was found guilty and sentenced to six years in prison, reduced to two on appeal. On 13 April 1992, Mandela publicly announced his separation from Winnie. The ANC forced her to step down from the national executive for misappropriating ANC funds; Mandela moved into the mostly white Johannesburg suburb of Houghton. Mandela’s prospects for a peaceful transition were further damaged by an increase in “black-on-black” violence, particularly between ANC and Inkatha supporters in KwaZulu-Natal, which resulted in thousands of deaths. Mandela met with Inkatha leader Buthelezi, but the ANC prevented further negotiations on the issue. Mandela argued that there was a “third force” within the state intelligence services Image result for peter hain images fuelling the “slaughter of the people”See the source image and openly blamed de Klerk – whom he increasingly distrusted – for the Sebokeng massacre. In September 1991, a national peace conference was held in Johannesburg at which Mandela, Buthelezi and de Klerk signed a peace accord, though the violence continued.

I invite readers to refresh themselves re dates and events re the Gang and my friends and I as provided in eg. ‘The Price Is Right’. N.B. F’s mum was a white South African and F opposed apartheid. As well as organised abuse, the framing and murder of kids in care, psych patients, witnesses etc. Unlike Peter Hain, David Ennals and so many of Gwynne and Dafydd’s crowd on the left who just opposed apartheid. Sort of. Although they always found room for the moving of goalposts. As Meri Huws used to say, ‘Pick Up The Phone’.See the source imageSee the source imageSee the source imageSee the source image

Lord Hain! While the criminal rats descended upon Bridgy en masse and intimidated father in his own house, you’ll be delighted to hear that my father, being the right wing old bloke that he was, never wavered from referring to Mandela as ‘The Elderly Terrorist’ even when Mandela had become a Global Hero. Brown caused a rumpus at an Amnesty conference as well when he asked Martin Ennals’ representative why Amnesty would not support the Birmingham Six but did support Mandela. Martin Ennals’ pal told Brown that the Birmingham Six had received a fair trial in a British Court. Brown came across a former Amnesty big wig years later, as his senior colleague; Brown told me that this Amnesty man really hated him and Brown wondered whether word had got around about the Conference years previously. Image result for michael mansfield imagesVery probably Brown, ALL Amnesty big wigs were mates with Gwynne and Dafydd! As well as other people who had a problem with you and I.See the source image

Re Fair Trials In A British Court, I had lots of them, as did many other targets of the bunch of gangsters with whom the whole Ennals family was in bed, in some cases literally…

1990 and 1991 saw so many occasions that are worthy of being categorised as Dates For Your Diary as detailed in ‘The Price Is Right’ that I keep finding yet more Dates that I have failed to flag up sufficiently, or that I intend to discuss in detail in future posts but need to at least mention here. Consider this:

Donald Coleman, Labour MP for Neath, died on 14 Jan 1991, days after I had been charged with serious offences at Caernarfon Magistrates Court on the basis of the perjury of the Drs Francis and had been bailed to live in my shared house in Streatham. An application by the police was made for me to be held on remand in Risley; the bail application only seemed to have been granted because my housemates were Nice People, one being a junior doc at St George’s. My GP in London arranged a home visit for me from Robin Jacobson of Springfield Hospital on 15 Jan 1991 and Jacobson arranged for me to be admitted to Springfield on 16 Jan 1991. See eg. ‘The Price Is Right’ for details of the impressive conspiracy that was underway before I had even met Jacobson; the St George’s/Springfield contingent were part of the ring and had been working with the Gang for years. Independent Opinion from the Maudsley Dr Paul Bowden – a good mate of Bluglass and a man who had spent his entire career working with Gwynne, Dafydd’s and Tony Francis’s former colleagues – even managed to supply Alice Levinson, Jacobson’s junior doc, with his detailed assessment of me and accompanying diagnosis and Treatment Plan (ie. No Treatment, I was Dangerous, Nothing Would Work On Me and I would Use Therapy to inflict even more suffering upon the world) days before he had met me… I was discharged from Springfield on 7 Feb 1991, forced out of my job and refused all support except for an appointment with St Helena’s friend from St George’s/Springfield, Forensic Psych Prof Nigel Eastman, for, in Alice Levinson’s words, ‘containment’. Eastman told me to go back to north Wales because they knew me there and Dafydd was my doctor no less. At the end of Feb 1991, I obtained a letter written and signed by Jacobson to Eastman, telling Eastman that Dafydd had told Jacobson that I was ‘attractive and seductive’, that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and that Jacobson suspected Tony Francis was as well. See ‘The Price Is Right’.

My friend who had stood by me in spite of the gangsters and threats (see ‘The Turn Of The Screw’) was forced out of her job at the Royal Television Society in Feb/March 1991. Her husband was forced out of his job at the BBC soon afterwards. One of my housemates from my student days at UCNW was forced out of his job with a drug company in Kent at the same time.

Peter Morrison bagged a K in Feb 1991.

I was the subject of another High Court case in London in Feb or March 1991; again the Drs Francis perjured themselves, again the MDU and the barrister acting for them, Sir Robert Francis QC, knew this.

Peter Hain was elected as the Labour MP for the safe seat of Neath – the location of the seriously grim Neath Farm School, where boys in care in north Wales were sent if they didn’t shut up about the beatings, the buggery and associated Giggles With Gwynne – on 4 April 1991. See ‘The Managers Of The Abattoir’.

Sir John Stradling Thomas, the Tory MP for Monmouth, died in office on 29 March 1991. Sir John was found dead in his flat in Dolphin Square. He was due to deliver a speech in the Commons on the allegations that politicians were involved with the abuse of children hours after his body was found. While Old Nick Edwards was Welsh Secretary, 1979-June 1987, Sir John was, along with Wyn Roberts and Keith Best, a member of Old Nick’s team in the Welsh Office. I intend to blog more about Sir John soon, but here’s the essentials as provided by the Dictionary of Welsh Biography:

Sir John Stradling Thomas was born on 10 June 1925, the son of Thomas Roger Thomas and Catherine Delahaye. He was educated at Bryntirion School, Bridgend, Rugby School [as was Tom King], London University (graduated B.Sc) and the Royal Veterinary College. He became an honorary associate of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and the British Veterinary Association. He was called to the bar from the Inner Temple. He was a farmer, a company director and a broadcaster. He served as the chairman of the Carmarthen branch of the NFU, a member of the NFU Council and the NFU Welsh Council, 1963-70.

Numerous Gang members eg. Henry Brookes (Beata’s brother) and Bob Parry on Anglesey have held high office in the NFU.

Throughout his life he felt deep commitment to the cause of farmers.

Think Lord Kenyon and the Dept of Agriculture at UCNW, where Mary Wynch had been employed before the Gang ruined her life; no-one from UCNW ever showed any concern for Mary at all, even when she was making headlines. 

Thomas was a member of the Carmarthen Borough Council, 1961-64. He stood as the Conservative candidate for Aberavon in the general election of 1964, and for Cardiganshire in 1966. He was the Conservative MP for Monmouth, 1970 until his death. By 1987 he had built up his once slender majority to 9,350 votes. Though he rarely spoke in the House of Commons, he was highly regarded as a splendid member of the Speaker’s Panel of Chairman, chairing committees with unfailing flair and good humour. He served as a member of the Select Committee on the Civil List, 1970-71. He was Assistant Government Whip, November 1971-October 1973, Lord Commissioner of the Treasury, October 1973-March 1974.

Sir John was Lord Commissioner of the Treasury under the Grocer’s Chancellor of the Exchequer Anthony Barber, a key member of the Gang, dating back to Supermac’s Gov’t. Barber served as Douglas-Home’s Minister of Health just as Dafydd bagged promotion to Consultant rank. Barber was MP for Doncaster, 25 October 1951-25 September 1964; when he lost his seat, the Tories were so desperate to get Barber back in the Commons that the Tory MP for Altrincham and Sale, Frederick Erroll, stood down from the Commons ‘on Top Doc’s advice’, was given a peerage and thus made room for Barber to serve as the MP for that safe Tory Cheshire constituency, 10 June 1965-20 September 1974.

Frederick Erroll was a valuable member of the Gang, one of Sir Clough’s circle educated at Oundle, then at Trinity College, Cambridge. Under Harold Macmillan, Erroll was President of the Board of Trade, 1961-63. As Douglas-Home’s Minister for Power, 1963-64, Erroll rushed through the Continental Shelf Bill to allow Oil companies to speedily explore the North Sea and thus get in there before the Labour Party. See the source imageSee the source image

In the Lords, Erroll led the Tories in little-reported Lords economic, industrial and foreign trade debates Outside politics, Erroll was an even greater success as an industrialist. He was Chairman of paper producer Bowater and Consolidated Gold Fields See the source image -at Consolidated Gold Fields, See the source imageErroll fought off takeover attempts by South African billionaire Harry Oppenheimer – and Whessoe and [was] a leading figure in the CBI

Which brings us to John Davies, DG of the CBI, 30 July 1965-15 October 1969. As CBI chief, Davies had some quango appointments as a member of the British Productivity Council, the British National Export Council and the Council of Industrial Design. Davies was briefly a member of the Public Schools Commission.

John Davies’s early business career began when he joined the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company as an accountant in the marketing division. Davies worked for the company in London, Stockholm and Paris; the company renamed as British Petroleum in 1954. In 1956, Davies was promoted to be General Manager (Markets) for BP, and in 1960 he was Director of BP Trading. In 1961, John Davies was appointed as Vice-Chairman and Managing Director of Shell-Mex and BP Ltd, See the source imageDavies also became a Director of Hill Samuel Group. Due to his position he was made a member of the Grand Council of the Federation of British Industry and Chaired a committee on technical legislation. The Federation merged with British Employers’ Federation and the National Association of British Manufacturers in 1965 to form the Confederation of British Industry.

In 1969, John Davies was recruited by Grocer Heath to join his Gov’t once he won the next election. Davies failed to win the selection for the Conservative nomination at the Louth byelection of 1969 and for Cities of London and Westminster for the General Election. However, with Conservative Central Office support, See the source imageDavies was found a seat at Knutsford in Cheshire, which he easily won in the General Election on 18 June 1970. Knutsford was the former seat of an eccentric Sir Bufton Tufton of a Gang member:

Walter Bromley-Davenport
John Davies was succeeded as MP for Knutsford by Jock Bruce-Gardyne

In October 1970, John Davies was promoted to be Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, a new department set up by Grocer Heath.

John Davies served as Tory MP for Knutsford in Cheshire, 18 June 1970-6 November 1978. Davies was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour in 1978,as matters Mr Thrope began to look worrying and swiftly stood down from the Shadow Cabinet and from Parliament. Davies was granted the position of Steward of the Manor of Northstead on 6 November 1978. In Brenda’s Birthday Honours list of 1979, Davies was awarded a life peerage, but on 4 July 1979 – Mr Thrope, an early supporter of the Anti-Apartheid Movement, had Walked Free From The Old Bailey on 20 June 1979 See the source image–  The London Gazette announced that “Gentle Davies [was] dead” from a relapse before the patent of creation passed the Great Seal. Peerage history was made when, by Royal Warrant bearing the date 27 February 1980, his widow Vera Georgina was granted the style and title of Baroness Harding-Davies of St. Mellons, indicating the title Davies had intended to take; his children The Hon. Francis William Harding Harding-Davies and The Hon. Rosamond Ann Metherell were given the rank of children of life peers.

Gentle Davies’s son the Hon Francis is better known as Frank Davies, the Canadian record producer, music publisher and founder of the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame (Panthéon des Auteurs et Compositeurs Canadiens). Davies has been a major contributor to the growth of Canada’s music industry and its creative community for more than four decades. Frank is credited with discovering, producing, publishing, and developing the careers of many celebrated artists and songwriters, as well as being an advocate for their status.

Frank Davies started his music career in 1964 as a French correspondent to Billboard magazine. See the source imageSee the source imageHe later worked for both EMI Records and Liberty Records in London until the late 1960s, before migrating to Canada in 1970. There, Frank co-founded the independent record label Daffodil (named after the national emblem of Wales and as a symbol of hope and new beginnings), which became the first Canadian label to be distributed by a ‘major’ in that country, in the shape of Capitol/EMI. In 1978 alongside Daffodil Davies formed Partisan Music a production and publishing company that entered into an exclusive deal with a U.S record company (Capitol) to develop talent for that label worldwide. In early 1982 Davies put his label and production company on hold to become President of ATV Music Canada. In 1986, as a result of ATV’s purchase by Michael JacksonSee the source imageSee the source image Davies formed The Music Publisher (TMP) and built it into Canada’s largest and most successful independent music publisher over the next 14 years. Frank sold TMP to Alliance Communications Corporation and A&F Music in 1994 staying on as its President/CEO until the end of 1999 at which time he founded the music consultancy firm he currently operates – Let Me Be Frank Inc. In 1998 Frank Davies founded the non-profit Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame/Le panthéon des auteurs et compositeurs Canadiens (CSHF/PACC) serving as its Chairman until 2004. The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame has inducted Canadian songwriters such as Gordon Lightfoot, Leonard Cohen, RUSH, Robbie Robertson, Joni Mitchell and Oscar Peterson.

On 1 June 1972 Frank Davies married the Canadian pop singer Lynda Squires, daughter of Ruth Mullen Squires. The marriage produced three children, Meghan Mae Harding Davies, now Ehrensperger, Emily Gwyneth Emerson Davies-Cohen, and Kate Theresa Georgina Davies.

Frank Davies received the Juno Awards 2014 Walt Grealis Special Achievement Award, recognizing individuals who have made a significant impact on the Canadian music industry. See the source image

See previous posts for further details of the Music Mogul who built his career on the back of the lobotomised victims of a gang of old sex offenders.See the source image

[Erroll] was a leading figure in]the Institute of Directors and the London Chamber of Commerce. He led successful trade delegations to south-east Asia and Latin America, and penetrated the Iron Curtain, meeting Nikita Krushchev and Chou En-lai. It’s incredible what one can achieve if one is friends with the Royal Lobotomist.See the source image

When Barber was the Grocer’s Chancellor, Maurice Macmillan served as his Chief Secretary to the Treasury.

Barber had two brothers: Noel, who became a well-known journalist and novelist, and Kenneth, who became Secretary of Midland Bank.  

Stradling Thomas was an opposition whip, 1974-79, and Treasurer of the Royal Household and government deputy chief whip, 1979-83. This was the happiest and the most successful period in his political career. He was also a member of the Select Committee on Trade and Industry, 1979-83, and of the Commons Service Committee, 1979-83. He was Minister of State for Wales, 1983-85, having reluctantly agreed to take the position after the death of Michael Roberts MP in February 1983.

Michael Roberts was the Tory MP for Cardiff North who died a slapstick death in action in the Commons. Michael Hilary Arthur Roberts (6 May 1927-10 February 1983) was the first Headteacher of the Bishop of Llandaff Church in Wales High School when it opened in 1963. Roberts contested Aberdare in 1954 and unsuccessfully fought Sunny Jim in Cardiff South East in 1955 and 1959, in 1959 losing by only 868 votes. Roberts was MP for Cardiff North from 1970 to February 1974 and thereafter for Cardiff North West. He became a junior Welsh Office Minister when Thatch came to power in 1979.

At 9:44 PM on 10 February 1983, Roberts collapsed and was taken ill while speaking at the despatch box in the House of Commons (he was replying to an adjournment debate) and was pronounced dead, aged 55, on arrival at hospital. He had suffered a fatal heart attack. Ordinarily there would have been a by-election to succeed him but none was called due to the impending 1983 General Election, in which boundary changes abolished his Cardiff North West seat.

Michael Roberts died exactly as the Gang moved in on us big time; Brown began receiving murder threats in Jan 1983 and Adrian Bell at UCNW simply ignored that and pressurised me into seeing D.G.E. Wood, who also ignored what was happening to Brown… It was in Feb 1983 that the undercover officer Patricia Margaret Edwards aka Trishles moved into our shared house in Llandegfan and caused havoc. Other crazy people whom I now know to have been undercover then began bothering us as well. eg. Leslie Gore the toxic Therapist, Naomi Grunfeld the Stoke Newington Orthodox Jewish teacher who fell in love with Brown, a whole host of Germans … See eg. ‘They Got On Their Bikes And Looked For Work’.

In 1983, Tiny Rowland purchased ‘The Observer’.

For info on others who held Michael Roberts’ seat of Cardiff North – a seat that it is impossible to win if one does not ignore the crap pouring out of institutions such as the University Hospital Cardiff, Cardiff Social Services etc – see ‘The Paedophiles Friends Of Cardiff North’. The Ale Twat’s wife Julie held Cardiff North, 1997-2010 – THINK WATERHOUSE INQUIRY AND DEATH OF GEORGE THOMAS as detailed in ‘The Price Is Right’!! – but then Julie was so committed to the cause of Sunny Jim, George Thomas et al that as a student at King’s College, London, Julie returned to Cardiff to campaign for Sunny Jim. A career in social work in Wales, as Deputy Director of Barnardo’s and as the wife of an Ale Twat was inevitable.

Tory Ian Grist succeeded Michael Roberts in the seat, Feb 1974-1983 and Grist repeatedly was confronted with the results of Gwynne and Dafydd, only to make silly excuse after silly excuse. Grist served as PPS to Old Nick, 1979-81 and then Thatch appointed Grist as junior Minister at the Welsh Office in June 1987, under Old Nick’s successor Peter Walker (one of the Gang’s money men, friend and business colleague of Edward du Cann as well as Nigel Lawson) just as the Cunning Plan re my fitting up and imprisonment fell apart. Image result for lord tom king imagesGrist was considered a truly safe pair of hands; after losing his seat Grist was appointed Chairman of South Glamorgan Health Authority, a post he held until 1996, ‘when he retired due to ill health’.

Another episode of ‘Friends’. Or ‘Sex In The City’?

[Stradling Thomas] readily admitted thereafter that he missed the whip’s office sorely. In 1985, Nicholas Edwards, the Secretary of State for Wales, replaced Stradling Thomas with Mark Robinson (Newport West) at the Welsh Office.

Mark Robinson was one of those who replied to my communications with the Welsh Office re the Gang when Robinson was a junior Welsh Office Minister, 1985-June 1987, under Old Nick, telling me that there was just nothing that he could do. Mark Noel Foster Robinson (born 26 December 1946) was born in Bristol to John Foster Robinson and Margaret. Robinson’s father was High Sheriff of Avon in 1975. John Robinson’s family ran ES&A Robinson, the paper and packaging conglomerate that later became Dickinson Robinson Group. The Robinsons were famous for cricket: Robinson’s grandfather, Sir Foster Robinson, was captain of Gloucestershire; other members of the family played for, and captained, Gloucestershire. Robinson was educated at Harrow a la Lord Wyn Roberts, Gang stalwart in the Welsh Office and Christ Church, Oxford.

Mark Robinson spent six years at the United Nations: at the UN Relief Operation to Bangladesh; in the Office of the Under-Secretary General; and in the Office of the Secretary General, Kurt Waldheim. From 1977–83 Robinson was Assistant Director in the Office of the Commonwealth Secretary-General, who was then Sir Shridath Ramphal. Dodgy lawyer Sonny Ramphal (see previous posts) has been an excellent friend to the Gang and was most helpful to Lord Elwyn-Jones, People Trafficker In Chief; Sonny served as Chancellor of Warwick University, place of many sins as discussed in ‘Vichy Warwick’.

Robinson was/is: Chairman of the Commonwealth Organisations’ Committee on Zimbabwe; the UK Chairman of the Commonwealth Consortium for Education; a Council Member of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust; Hon. Treasurer of the Commonwealth Round Table: the Commonwealth Journal of International Affairs; and a Trustee of Concordia UK.

Robinson was elected Conservative MP for the notionally safe Labour seat of Newport West in 1983. Because of his background at the UN and Commonwealth Robinson was appointed to the Foreign Affairs Select Committee, a position he held until in 1985 when Thatch appointed him Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Welsh Office. Despite achieving an increase in his share of the vote, Robinson lost his seat at the June 1987 General Election to Labour’s Paul Flynn. Flynn will have been one of those who knew about Leo Abse’s Cunning Plan re me in 1987; then there were the documents that Tony Francis was sending to the Windbag’s Office. In the 1990s, Flynn used to appear on TV in the Vincent Kane Debates with Dafydd; Flynn robustly argued with Dafydd re Dafydd’s nonsense about Reefer Madness, but Flynn had a long and glorious history re Gwynne and Dafydd and I still haven’t got to the bottom of it. Flynn (see previous posts), a Roman Catholic from south Wales, stood as the Labour candidate for Denbigh in Oct 1974; all candidates for Denbigh knew that they would be facilitating butchers. As with working as a Top Doc in north Wales, most people would just not do it. Flynn’s daughter killed herself when she was 15 which suggests something terrible, but I haven’t been able to find out more.

Robinson was re-elected in 1992 for the Somerset seat of Somerton and Frome. He was PPS to the Minister for Overseas Development, Baroness Chalker, one of the Gang’s emissaries who held a Merseyside seat (see previous posts) and one of the Gang’s men in the security services with a hotline into UCNW, Douglas Hurd, (see eg. ‘Our Man In Llandegfan) but was defeated at the 1997 General Election by David Heath. Robinson has since served as a Commonwealth election observer.

From 1987–1995 Robinson was a Director of Leopold Joseph, the Merchant Bank and from 1988–92 he was a Member of the Board of the Commonwealth Development Corporation.

[Stradling Thomas] was a member of the Bow Group, and was elected president of the Federation of Conservative Clubs in 1984. He was a member of the General Advisory Council to the BBC See the source image and a trustee of the Parliamentary Pension Fund. Stradling Thomas suffered a serious fall in 1987 which almost killed him and thereafter deprived him of his powers and energy. During the last years of his life a conspicuous waning of his powers and his general inactivity in parliament had led to some dissatisfaction in his constituency. His conspicuous absence from a parliamentary debate on the Severn Bridge tolls had greatly irked his constituency party which then refused to endorse Stradling Thomas as their candidate. After an initial display of defiance, he announced his intention to stand down at the next general election. He was knighted in 1985. Thomas married in 1951 Freda, the daughter of Rhys Evans, and they had one son and two daughters. The marriage was dissolved in 1982. He died at London on 29 March 1991.

Peter Hain was elected as the Labour MP for the safe seat of Neath on 4 April 1991.See the source image

I appeared at the Royal Courts of Justice at the Strand in April 1991; all documentation and references to the case have disappeared from my files. See the source imageI don’t know the exact date and I can’t remember the name of the judge, but St Helena was in a neighbouring Court representing Sara Thornton in her first (unsuccessful) appeal against conviction in a Wimmin’s Abuse test case. See the source imageI can’t retrieve any info from the Royal Courts re my case unless I know the date; I have e mailed St Helena to ask if she could provide me with the dates that she appeared for Sara in April 1991, but St Helena has not replied. St Helena’s colleague in Tooks Court Chambers Michael Mansfield represented Sara at her second successful appeal in the autumn of 1996. In the latter part of 1993, I wrote to MM about the abuses of Gwynedd Social Services; MM sent me a one-line reply. I have been told that MM sent up the distress flare to all Radical Defenders and it was agreed that none of them would agree to act for me if I asked them.

Ian Gow was on good terms with his cousin Tory MP Nicholas William Budgen (3 November 1937-26 October 1998), aka Nick Budgen. Named after St. Nicholas Church in Newport, Shropshire of which his grandfather was priest, Budgen was baptised at Lichfield Cathedral by his grandfather, who had also baptised Enoch Powell, as well as marrying his parents. It was Budgen who succeed Powell as the Tory MP for Wolverhampton South West.

Nicholas Budgen was educated at St Edward’s School in Oxford and Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. Budgen was raised by his grandfather after his father had been killed during WW II. Budgen carried out his National Service in the North Staffordshire Regiment; in 1959 he transferred to the Staffordshire Yeomanry. Budgen became a barrister at Gray’s Inn in 1962. Gray’s Inn contained the best as far as Gwynne and Dafydd were concerned, because of the presence of William Mars-Jones in a senior capacity there.

Nick Budgen was also a very keen amateur rider under National Hunt rules and in the spring of 1971. In 1974, Enoch Powell left the Tory Party and resigned from his seat over their policy on the EEC, only six weeks before the 1974 General Election and Budgen was selected to stand for the Tories in Powell’s old seat Wolverhampton South West.

Previous posts have discussed how Enoch Powell Cunningly Assisted Gwynne and Dafydd while making a public display of Being Determined To Put A Stop to their Giggles. Powell was a very strange man in many ways but him being famously offensive re matters Skin (as Lisa Nandy would say) has eclipsed discussion about the many other aspects of him. In recent years, Powell has been named as a Westminster paedophile. I have no idea if he was, but Powell was dysfunctional re personal relationships even by the standards of those men of his era and class who had often been brutalised. He experienced enormous levels of survivor”s guilt after his mates had nearly all been killed during their war service, used to become incredibly depressed and openly state that he wished that he had died as well. Powell’s wife found this hard to deal with and Powell believed that was because she was a Woman. His relationships with the young men who had been killed were very close, obviously emotionally romantic but no-one dared to ever confirm whether Powell had been sexually involved with his male friends.

Powell’s famous defection from the Tory Party to the Ulster Unionists and him urging people not to vote Tory wasn’t for the reasons usually assumed. I haven’t had time to dig properly yet, but I have received info that it was something to do with the havoc bubbling under in the West Country about Mr Thrope’s ‘immoral’ behaviour and Edward du Cann being a crook…

In 1975 Nick Budgen voted to remain in the Common Market. In 1981 he was appointed a Conservative Whip, but on 8 May 1982 he resigned as a Whip over his opposition to the creation of a Northern Ireland Assembly. To compensate, The Spectator magazine selected Budgen as their 1984 Backbencher of the Year. It was allegedly Budgen’ speeches in 1985 against the Anglo-Irish Agreement that persuaded his cousin Ian Gow to resign as a Minister from Thatch’s Gov’t.

According to Michael Brown, who was at the time a Gov’t Whip, Nick Budgen was the only critic of the 1988 Budget, which contained many “giveaways” and led to high inflation and the 1990 recession. Brown described the situation in the Commons tea room after the budget as one of congratulatory atmosphere until Nick Budgen entered and proceeded to tell those present, “It is the most irresponsible budget I have ever heard, it will be downhill from now on. In one fell swoop Mr Lawson has squandered five years of responsible economic management”.

Budgen’s denouncement was only the Gang scrapping among themselves again; Lawson’s City career included business with Edward du Cann’s mates, including business partners of Gwynne and Dafydd loyalist Peter Walker. Greville Janner’s mate Frank Beck, the Leicestershire social worker was arrested at his home on 14 April 1990.

Cardiff High Court, May 1990: See the source image By the time that I appeared before Malcolm Pill, David Hunt was the Brand New Welsh Secretary; my documentation shows that all the ground work re conspiracy, perjury, forged documentation etc had been carried out under Hunt’s predecessor as Welsh Secretary, one Peter Walker. Thatch whipped Walker out of the Welsh Office days before I appeared in the High Court in Cardiff. On 26 Oct 1989 – days before the Secret Case Conference Chaired by Dr Chris Hunter (see ‘The Night Of The Hunter’), by then based at the Caswell Clinic in south Wales, was held about me in Nov 1989 that concluded I should be sent to live with Mr Savile – Fatty Lawson had retired as Chancellor. Fatty lingered on the backbenches – ‘I know nuzzing’ – until he retired in April 1992, days before the Brighton Firebomb killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. See ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’. 

On 29 Nov 1991 Beck received five life sentences plus an extra 24 yrs for the violent physical and sexual abuse of more than 100 kids in care, including rapes. Beck served as a Liberal Councillor for Blaby, Lawson’s constituency, from 1983.

Jimmie McAlpine, a keen cricketer who lived at the family seat in Denbighshire, died on 6 Nov 1991; in 1985 Jimmie had handed over the Chairmanship of McAlpines to his son Bobby, who featured in ‘The Cash Box’. Geoffrey Howe, Deputy PM and Lord President of the Council (and therefore visitor to UCNW), resigned from Thatch’s Gov’t on 1 Nov 1991; Howe began life as a bent south Wales lawyer assisting the Gang and the assistance became increasingly effective as the old git rose up through Gov’t; Howe’s dad assisted the Gang in Gwynne’s early era. On 13 Nov 1991, Howe’s resignation speech led to Thatch being deposed by the end of Nov 1991. It was the Top Docs wot did it, but whether they blackmailed Howe over his many previous crimes re Gwynne’s Giggles  or whether Howe was only too happy to stick the knife in I don’t know.

There are allegations that Frank Beck and two others murdered one boy, although the death was explained away as the boy having run away from a children’s home only to ‘kill himself’. There were direct links and exchanges of staff – including Top Docs and social workers – between the ring in Leicestershire and the Gang in north Wales. Lawson’s daughter Nigella when at Oxford was mates with the Dangerous Sports Club tossers who befriended Mr Bridgy Celeb early in 1987…

By 1987, Brown was in Leicester doing his PhD and I shared his house there from May/June 1987 until Feb 1988. In June 1987, the constituency in which we lived elected a new Labour MP, who more recently has forged out a career in selling washing machines:

 

Mr Charles Moore described at Budgen’s memorial service how he once rang Budgen pretending to be a racist constituent. He said that Budgen said he supported a firm immigration policy, but when pushed to agree that all immigrants should be sent home, he forcefully defended their right to be in Britain. “His distaste was palpable. I can think of many more liberal-minded MPs who might have given less firm answers to someone they thought might vote for them,” he said. In the 2019 release of Gov’t papers it was revealed that Budgen avoided Blacks and Irish people in his constituency.

Ken Clarke was at Cambridge with Budgen and invited Budgen (who had at the time lost the Conservative Party Whip) to his 50th birthday party at 11 Downing Street. Ken Clarke the dodgy old geezer who has been at the thick of so much wrongdoing for so many decades…

Budgen’s real prominence came in the 1990s when he was one of the Whipless Eight; the Maastricht Rebels. The Whipless Eight had taken to having their own policy meetings, leading Grocer Heath to describe them as “a party within a party”.

Leolin Price was one of the lawyers who provided legal advice to the Maastricht Rebels. Leolin was married to Lindy, daughter of Lord Brecon. Lord Brecon aka David Vivian Penrose Lewis, a Councillor from Talybont-on-Usk, took High Society by storm when in December 1957 he was appointed Minister of State for Welsh Affairs by PM Harold Macmillan and then in Jan 1958 was raised to the peerage as Baron Brecon. No-one could understand why this bumpkin who very obviously did not have the knowledge or experience for a Gov’t position had suddenly been plucked from obscurity, or at least no-one who didn’t know about Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist. Lord Brecon was admitted to the Privy Council in 1960 and remained Minister of State for Welsh Affairs until 1964, from 1963 to 1964 under PM Sir Alec Douglas-Home. Lord Brecon died just before matters Mr Thrope became horribly public; Mabel, Lady Brecon, outlived her husband by decades and made herself useful by serving as a JP.

It was Lord and Lady Brecon’s daughter Rosalind aka Lindy who really benefited from her dad’s elevation on the basis of Gwynne and Dafydd’s crimes. Lindy was Raised As A Lady and spent her adult life in Good Works, in particular Prison/Penal Reform, especially in the direction of Delinquent Girls, Women Prisoners and other people who were likely to have been victims of Gwynne et al. Lindy was among many things a member of the Police Complaints Board (1983-85).

Lindy and Leolin were based in Camden but in the early 1980s, relocated to mid-Wales. Lindy was mates with Old Nick, so inevitably it was roles in NHS governance for Lindy. Lindy became a member of the Maternity Services Advisory Committee (1981-84) and then a lay member of the Midwifery Committee of the UK Central Council (1983-88). In 1986, Old Nick appointed Lindy Chairman of the Powys District Health Authority, which in 1992 became Powys Health Care NHS Trust and Price continued to Chair it until 1996. Lindy was a member of the Social Security Advisory Committee set up by the Department of Social Security and a number of other similar committees. Geoffrey Howe’s wife Elspeth ‘served on committees’ with Lindy and rated her; Lindy was a Tory and as a young woman had worked for the Tories. In 1996, Lindy Price was appointed by the Welsh Office William Hague (cropped).jpg as Chairman of the Gwent Health Authority (1996-98). Lindy was highly effective at keeping a lid on the most appalling malpractice in the NHS (and of course in Penal Reform, as well as in so many organisations that Help) but at Gwent HA, one of the shitbombs blew up splattering Lindy. The excuse was the existence of a ‘serious management problem’ in Gwent HA of which everyone knew nuzzing. Lindy herself sadly passed over on 8 June 1999, very soon after she was splattered by the Gang into which she was born.

The anti-EU Bastards who famously caused so much trauma for John Major were associated with Prof Richard Howarth, an agricultural economist from UCNW, who bagged a job as Thatch’s adviser shortly after I arrived at UCNW, registered for a degree in Howarth’s Dept of Agriculture and then (along with many other students) changed course because Howarth et al were so hopelessly incompetent. The Dept of Agriculture became notorious when the UCNW-subsidised farm that the Dept ran went bankrupt – twice – as a result of the gross mismanagement. Howarth was an economic adviser to Thatch and busied himself contributing to Bruges Group publications. Howarth’s star fell with Thatch and he was last heard of in the 1990s running a B&B in north Wales.

Howarth was mates with anti-EU Tory politician Sir Richard Body, MP for Billericay, 1955-59, for Holland with Boston, 1966-97, and for Boston and Skegness from 1997 until he stood down at the 2001 General Election. Body doubled up as ‘Old Muckspreader’ in ‘Private Eye’. Body’s wife, Lady Body, the former Marion Graham, was a friend and Bletchley Park colleague of Valerie Middleton, Kate Middleton’s grandmother. Howarth and Body were chums with another similar character to them, Lord Richard Livesey, the Liberal MP for Brecon and Radnorshire, 4 July 1985-9 April 1992 and 1 May 1997-14 May 2001. Livesey’s CV (see previous posts) suggests that he had a great many connections with UCNW, Aber University and people who knew me in Somerset, as well as Gang members in north Wales.

Livesey succeeded Tom Hooson in the Brecon and Radnorshire seat. Tom was the (Tory) cousin of (Liberal) Emlyn Hooson, bent barrister of the Gang, the Hoosons being a Denbighshire farming family. Tom died suddenly in office ‘from a heart attack’ on 8 May 1985, See the source image shortly after Tony Francis went weird on me for the first time and went weird on a friend of mine from Bangor at the same time, which led to the big row between Francis and me in Aug 1985 over him telling bare-faced porkies. Anthony Eden’s son Nicholas Eden, a Minister in Thatch’s Gov’t who had used the services provided by Gwynne and Dafydd, was at the time dying from AIDS. Eden resigned from his job as Minister at the Dept of Environment on 27 March 1985 and died on 17 Aug 1985, virtually to the day that Francis challenged me to complain about him to the Welsh Office for all he cared; he had already contacted the Welsh Office to let them know that I would be coming…See the source image

As well as being Legal Adviser To Bastards, Leolin Price was also Legal Adviser To The Fundraisers For Great Ormond Street. Sunny Jim’s wife Audrey for years was a governor of GOSH and Chaired the fundraising vehicle. Sunny Jim as PM used his influence to raise dosh. Sunny Jim and Audrey Image result for jim and audrey callaghan imageswere good friends with Leo Abse. As Wilson’s Home Secretary, Sunny Jim gave Leo all the powers that he needed to stage manage every part of a new Children Act – eventually the Children Act 1975 – that would result in huge numbers of kids being passed over to the Gang and linked rings… Leo relied entirely on Gwynne, Dafydd and their accomplices at every stage to provide the Expert Advice to the tame Houghton Committee that was established by Sunny Jim (ie. Leo) to review the law. There was a brief interval when Grocer Heath was PM, but as soon as Wilson returned to power in 1974, Dr Death offered the use of his Private Member’s Bill to get the Act on the statute books asap. The molesters running the ‘child protection services’ Image result for jimmy savile and thatch imageshad a continuous supply of kids… See previous posts.

To Nick Budgen, the European question was an issue far more important than Party loyalty. Budgen had a contemptuous attitude towards both Party and his leaders, having the second most rebellious voting record in the Commons, 1979-97. He is quoted as saying, “you know, this is a government you can push” and was aware that John Major‘s Gov’t was reliant upon the right wing of its Party because of its small majority in the Commons. To this end, Budgen helped lead a hardcore of approximately 50 right-wing Tory MPs to influence Gov’t policy on N Ireland and Europe among other things. His hard line on the N Ireland situation ‘was perhaps stiffened by the IRA murder of his cousin Ian Gow MP’.

The day after a conciliatory article in The Times by Budgen, John Major returned the whip to the rebels. Additionally, of the Whipless Rebels, Budgen was the only one to vote with the Gov’t on VAT on fuel in November 1994; the Gov’t were, however, defeated, forcing the then Chancellor Ken Clarke to return to Parliament with a “mini budget”, an unprecedented event.

On 4 Nov 1994 Liverpool High Court gave Dafydd his injunction against F and I on the basis of Dafydd’s ludicrous affidavit in which Dafydd discussed his own anus, complained about F blowing a raspberry down the phone at him months previously and a fallacious allegation that I had thrown a brick through his glass door in the early hours of the morning. The brick was planted and the MDU were contacted in Spring 1994 immediately after F and I met with the Mental Health Act Commission and told them that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients Image result for medical defence union images and that serious complaints against him were not being investigated. See ‘The Price Is Right’ and other posts.

Due to Budgen’s support for a referendum on the question of European integration, James Goldsmith‘s Referendum Party decided not to run a candidate against Budgen. (Lord Alistair McA joined Sir Jams’s Referendum Party after John Major became PM.) Budgen had in fact suggested to the seatless former Conservative Gov’t Minister and relentless sexual harasser/exploiter Alan Clark that he should stand for the Referendum Party. Budgen had said that the Tories “in the West Midlands will be running on alternative manifesto”, presumably meaning with other local Maastricht Rebels, Christopher Gill (Ludlow) and Richard Shepherd (Aldridge & Brownhills).

Previous posts have discussed the ring in Shropshire directly linked to the Gang – John Allen owned and managed a children’s home in Shropshire – that involved the Ormsy-Gore family ie. the Lords Harlech. David O-G aka the 5th Lord Harlech was British Ambassador to the US and in post when JFK was assassinated. Lord H subsequently had a romance with Jackie K, although she turned down his offer of marriage in 1968 to marry Aristotle Onassis, a rich Greek …

Previous posts have discussed the O-Gs at length, in particular the myth of the Curse Of The Harlechs, a tabloid construction in the face of so many of David Harlech’s immediate family dying young and/or in unfortunate circumstances. The Curse Of The Harlechs is as impressive as the Curse Of The Onassises, although The Curse Of The Harlechs only manifested itself once Lord David H had served as US Ambassador. Prior to that, the Harlechs were much as any other aristocratic family who supported the Gang.

William Ormsby-Gore, 4th Baron Harlech, was Tory MP for Denbigh Boroughs, 1910-18, then for Stafford, 1918-38, after which he entered the Lords after inheriting his father’s peerage. Stafford was the site of another big longstanding ring linked to the Gang, concealed by all the region’s politicians, including Jennie Lee aka Mrs Nye Bevan, Labour MP for Cannock, 5 July 1945-18 June 1970.

It is alleged that William Ormsby-Gore by 1916 had become a convert to Judaism; he was one of the primary figures in the British Gov’t who favoured the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. He was recalled to England in 1917 to serve as PPS to Lord Milner and as Assistant Secretary in the War Cabinet headed by PM David Lloyd George and to Sir Mark Sykes. Mark Sykes is the great-granddad of Model Plum Sykes, who is married to Toby Rowland, son of Tiny. See previous posts…

Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann, a personal friend of William Ormsby-Gore, took refuge in Ormsby-Gore’s London home while Weizmann was in London for the Cabinet approval of the Balfour Declaration. With Weizmann’s approval, Ormsby-Gore was the British military liaison officer with the Zionist mission in the Holy Land (then lately liberated from Ottoman Turkish rule) during March to August 1918. After the armistice, William O-G was part of the British delegation to the peace conference at Paris in 1919.

William O-G served as Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies, 1922-29 (with a brief interruption during the short-lived Labour Gov’t of 1924). He was British representative to the Permanent Mandates Commission of the League of Nations, 1921-22. In the 1927 New Year Honours, O-G was sworn of the Privy Council. William the 4th Baron Harlech also held office in the National Government as Postmaster-General in 1931, as First Commissioner of Works, 1931-36 and as Colonial Secretary, 1936-38, resigning, eight days after he entered the House of Lords, in protest re the partitioning of Palestine. O-G was also a firm protester against Nazi Germany at that time. During WW II, O-G was Civil Defence Commissioner for the North-East of England and then High Commissioner to South Africa, 1941-44.

After retiring from politics William O-G served on the Board of Midland Bank, owner of a banking house founded by his family, and was Chairman of the Bank of West Africa. O-G also held the honorary post of Lord Lieutenant of Merionethshire, 1938-57. Sir Clough Williams-Ellis of the Welsh Bloomsbury Set (see ‘The Village’) who used Gwynne and Dafydd’s services was only able to build Portmeirion after he received a loan from the Midland Bank. Portmeirion not only considerably boosted Sir Clough’s income, but because it became famous after it was used as the setting for the 1960s cult TV series ‘The Prisoner’, Portmeirion brought Gwynedd to the attention of a whole cohort of young people of that time who were keen on alternative lifestyles, rock music, recreational chemicals etc. Portmeirion is a mainstream tourist attraction these days but Portmeirion and all that came with it used to be viewed as much more off-beat. The success of ‘The Prisoner’ and the international fame of its Star Patrick McGoohan led to a whole world of film, media and celebs… See ‘Mr Fawlty, I No Want To Work Here Anymore…’

Described as having “a deep interest in the arts”, Lord Harlech was Trustee of the National Gallery (with a brief interval) from 1927 and of the Tate Gallery from 1945 to 1953, Chairman of the Advisory Committee to the Victoria and Albert Museum and of the Standing Commission on Museums and Galleries from 1948 to 1956. O-G had an extensive library at his Shropshire home, Brogyntyn near Oswestry, which he downsized after moving out of the mansion in 1955. Lord Kenyon’s family seat was in Shropshire and Lord K had the same sort of cultural interests as William O-G and sat on very similar committees. They knew each other well.

William O-G served as President of UCNW 1940-45; Charles Paget, 6th Marquess of Anglesey 1945–47; Lloyd Tyrell-Kenyon, 5th Baron Kenyon 1947–82; William Mars-Jones 1982–95; Cledwyn Hughes 1995–2000.

William’s son and heir David O-G had a standard High Society life until he served as US Ambassador. On 9 February 1940, Lord Harlech married Sylvia Lloyd Thomas, daughter of Hugh Lloyd Thomas, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to France, 1935-38, and Hon. Guendaline Ada Bellew.

In 1950, David O-G was elected Tory MP for Oswestry, in which role he remained until 1961. Under PM Anthony Eden O-G served briefly, from November 1956 to January 1957, as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs; and under PM Harold Macmillan he was from 1957 to 1961 Minister of State for Foreign Affairs. After the election of U.S. President John F. Kennedy David Harlech was appointed British Ambassador to the United States on 18 October 1961. He took the Chiltern Hundreds on 1 June, so that he could resign from the House.

David Ormsby-Gore knew Kennedy well from his time in London, where JFK’s father Joseph P. Kennedy had served as American Ambassador. Like Macmillan, David Ormsby-Gore was distantly related to JFK, but had a closer relationship than did Macmillan with the President-elect and his brother Robert. Six months after JFK took office, David Ormsby-Gore was in Washington, D.C. Referred to under the Kennedy administration as “our kind of Ambassador”, David O-G was almost a resident at the White House, being more a friend of the family than a mere ambassador.

After JFK’s assassination there were rumours of a romance between David Ormsby-Gore and Jacqueline Kennedy. In 1968 he proposed marriage to her, but, she did not accept. Ormsby-Gore was one of the pallbearers at Robert Kennedy’s funeral along with Robert McNamara, John Glenn, W. Averell Harriman, C. Douglas Dillon, Kirk Lemoyne Billings (schoolmate of John F. Kennedy), Stephen Smith (husband to Jean Ann Kennedy), David Hackett, Jim Whittaker and John Seigenthaler Sr.. Under the Lyndon B. Johnson administration relations were more formal but remained excellent; and Ormsby-Gore maintained his position after the Labour Gov’t took power in Britain in 1964.

The extent of David Harlech’s influence over the Kennedy administration is disputed. Unable to persuade the American Gov’t to agree with the British line over Yemen and the Congo, or to proceed with either a negotiated settlement with Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev over Berlin or the Skybolt ballistic missile programme, he nevertheless played a significant role in the Cuban Missile Crisis and ensured that Britain’s views were taken into account by the American Gov’t.

Bertrand Russell was one for firing off telegrams to World Leaders telling them what to do; I understand that the telegrams were sent from Penrhyndeudraeth Post Office and local teenagers with a wicked sense of humour were suitably entertained at the orders being despatched across the globe from Penrhyndeudraeth PO… One of Russell’s most famous orders from Penrhyndeudraeth PO was despatched during the Cuban Missile Crisis; in an exchange of telegrams with Nikita Khrushchev, Khrushchev assured Russell that the Soviet Gov’t would not be reckless. Russell sent this telegram to JFK:

YOUR ACTION DESPERATE. THREAT TO HUMAN SURVIVAL. NO CONCEIVABLE JUSTIFICATION. CIVILIZED MAN CONDEMNS IT. WE WILL NOT HAVE MASS MURDER. ULTIMATUM MEANS WAR… END THIS MADNESS.

Jump to it Kennedy. See the source image

A film made by the residents of Cwm Croesor has appeared on You Tube and explains that one of the famous telegrams containing Orders From Penrhyndeudraeth – I think the one that I have reproduced above to JFK – wasn’t written and sent by Russell at all but by one of those who worked for him. It is alleged that Russell only found out about it later. If telegrams were being despatched to World Leaders in Russell’s name without his knowledge, were I a teenager in Cwm Croesor at the time, I would have seen great scope for er Giggles but not quite as Gwynne conceptualised Giggles…

YOUR ACTION DESPERATE: ON-GOING GIGGLES. NUKE DENBIGH NOW!

The friendship of David Ormsby-Gore and Macmillan with JFK helped secure the first Test-Ban Treaty in 1963. Macmillan and Ormsby-Gore had been attempting to achieve a test-ban treaty with the Russians for the past ten years, and won Kennedy over through letters from Macmillan and frank discussions between Ormsby-Gore and Kennedy. They ‘convinced him to act like a statesman’ and conclude Test-ban treaties with Russia and not fear being branded as an appeaser by political opponents in the United States.

Ormsby-Gore was a participant in what is referred to as a “twenty-five year conversation to do with the role of a leader in a democratic society”. He encouraged Kennedy to remain focused on issues relevant to the world and the future, rather than attempting to protect himself politically. According to the Duchess of Devonshire, who travelled with the British delegation to Kennedy’s funeral in November 1963, Macmillan’s successor as PM Alec Douglas-Home had wanted to appoint Ormsby-Gore as Foreign Secretary, but R. A. Butler had insisted on having this post as a condition of serving under Home.

David Ormsby-Gore retired as Ambassador in 1965, a year after his father died and took his seat in the House of Lords as Lord Harlech, briefly also holding the position of Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party. He also had a successful career as a TV executive, founding HTV, and served as President of the British Board of Film Classification. Harlech had an active interest in the avant-garde, and for nearly ten years, beginning in 1969, was Patron of the Institute for Research in Art and Technology.

Lord Wyn Roberts’ years in TV broadcasting were something to do with David Harlech’s TV ventures.

The first indication of any Curse was Lady Harlech’s death in a road accident on 30 May 1967; Lord and Lady Harlech already had five children, many of whom were clobbered by The Curse:

  • Hon. Julian Hugh Ormsby-Gore (1940–1974), who died of gunshot wounds, ‘an apparent suicide’.
  • Hon. Jane Teresa Denyse Ormsby-Gore (b. 1942), who was said to have had an affair with Mick Jagger during the 1960s; some consider the Rolling Stones song “Lady Jane” to be about her.
  • Hon. Victoria Mary Ormsby-Gore (b. 1946)
  • Hon. Alice Magdalen Sarah Ormsby-Gore (1952–1995), who became engaged to rock guitarist Eric Clapton in 1969. Alice and Clapton lived together for five years, but did not marry. Alice subsequently died from a heroin overdose in April 1995, on the day before her 43rd birthday, ‘the syringe was still in her arm’ when her body was discovered. In April 1995, Hefin Davies, the Chair of Gwynedd Community Health Trust, was writing to Welsh Office Official portrait of John Redwood crop 2.jpglawyers as well as to Tony Lane, a Caernarfon-based solicitor acting for the Trust, asking them if there was anything at all that they could prosecute me for. See eg. ‘The Price Is Right’. Alice’s death occurred in a year that saw the deaths of numerous Insider witnesses including Peter Cook, Viv Stanshall, David Ennals, Bing Spear, Peter Morrison, Sir Charles Evans…Image result for exodus bob marley images
  • Francis David Ormsby-Gore, 6th Baron Harlech (1954–2016), who married Amanda Jane Grieve (b. 1959), daughter of Alan Grieve a Director of the Jerwood Foundation and his first wife, Anne Dulake. Before Lord and Lady Harlech were divorced on 31 August 1998, they had a son and a daughter:
  • Lord Francis Harlech was not a celeb, he was a farmer who’s biography had all the signs of someone under attack from the Gang; Francis was sectioned and not long afterwards was found dead in his farmhouse on 1 Feb 2016 on the family estate near Harlech, Gwynedd.

See previous posts for discussion of the obliteration of David Harlech’s family, the possibility that some of these deaths were murders and the serious difficulties encountered by so many of them, most obviously Francis. When David Harlech’s children were in their teens, they were befriended by a disreputable High Society dodgy geezer with Royal Links who it seems was procuring young people for an organised abuse ring. This surely could not have been unconnected to Gwynne and Dafydd…

Lord David Harlech was seriously injured in a car crash at Montford Bridge near Shrewsbury on the evening of 25 January 1985 and died at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital the following morning, aged 66. Senator Edward Kennedy, Jacqueline Onassis and other Kennedy family members attended his funeral in Llanfihangel-y-traethau. David was succeeded in the barony by his second and only surviving son, Francis.

The other UCNW student whom Tony Francis became suddenly unpleasant with in May 1985 was Ros Purkis, a girl from Shrewsbury, who’s mum was an Angel at Shrewsbury Hospital. Ros had been referred to Gwynne approx. one year before I was; after a disastrous encounter with Gwynne – although they were the only sort – she attempted suicide the next day and there was an almighty row, with her mum subsequently complaining to UCNW. Ros was then referred to Tony Francis, who did exactly what he did to me; reassured them that it Would Never Happen Again, that Gwynne had been reined in and that this would not affect Ros’s future ‘care’ with the NHS. It did. Ros continued to struggle with her health and never, ever received appropriate support, even by the standards of the mental health services. Ros’s mum was desperate but got nowhere. By the early 1990s, Ros was living in Manchester where she was pretty much abandoned by the psych services. I don’t know if Ros realised that they were Francis’s former colleagues… After a suicide attempt that nearly killed Ros via an o/d of antidepressants known to be very toxic in overdose, her mum expressed serious concerns that if more were not done, this would happen again. More prescriptions of the same drug were issued with no other support. Ros killed herself on 29 Sept 2010.

One reason why I was so reluctant to see Gwynne was because I knew what had happened to Ros, I had been very friendly with her in the first year in hall. Wood and Liz Stables ended up having a screaming row with me after I complained about Gwynne AND mentioned Ros when I was told that there had been no other complaints. ‘She was ill’. Yes Ros was, but nothing could justify what was going on. Exactly the same excuse was made about me: you were ill. Well I HAD been seriously depressed for months, gangsters were threating to murder Brown, he looked after me when Wood refused to do anything for months, I began functioning again and suddenly there were demands that I should see the wonderful ‘psychotherapist’ who had enjoyed such success. A lobotomist running a trafficking Gang. With added Giggles…

After his first wife’s death, Lord Harlech married again on 11 December 1969 to American socialite Pamela Colin, daughter of a Manhattan corporate lawyer. Pamela was a London resident editor of Vogue and then food editor of the British Vogue. The wedding was attended by Ma’am Darling, the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, the Earl and Countess of Drogheda, the Earl and Countess of Airlie, The Countess Gowrie, Lord and Lady David Cecil, Sir Fitzroy Maclean, J. J. Astor and The Hon. Michael Astor.

Pamela and David Harlech had one daughter, the Hon Pandora Ormsby-Gore (b. 1972).

The Ormsby-Gores bred with the Macmillans when Lord David Harlech’s sister Hon Katherine Margaret Alice Ormsby-Gore, (born 4 January 1921, died 22 January 2017), married Maurice Macmillan, Viscount Macmillan of Ovenden, son of Harold Macmillan, 1st Earl of Stockton and Lady Dorothy Cavendish

Maurice’s son and heir Alexander Macmillan married several times, including to celebs who had also married several times. Alexander’s shag-relatives as it were include Britt Ekland, Peter Sellers, Rod Stewart and many more. Peter Sellers was mates with Lord Snowdon, who seems to pop up with great frequency when one maps those who are linked to Gwynne and Dafydd. Alexander’s son Daniel, Viscount Ovenden, is a British fashion designer and has cavorted with Kate Moss and Jade Jagger. See ‘Mr Fawlty, I No Want To Work Here Any More’ for more names, details and links…

John Biffen succeeded Lord David Harlech as the Tory MP for Oswestry; Biffen who went to school with my father and who’s parents continued to live some three miles down the road from father even after their son was in the Cabinet… Biffen and Tom King were able to co-ordinate a great deal of criminality in collusion with the Gang.

Previous posts have discussed the presence of playwright John Osborne in Shropshire after he relocated there in the 1980s. Osborne had as many shag-relatives as Alexander Macmillan. One of Osborne’s wives was Penny Gilliatt, who’s first husband was Roger Gilliatt, friend of Gwynne and Lord Snowdon’s best man…

The reason why I have introduced the subject of Gwynne and Dafydd’s activities and pals in Shropshire here is because the only part of the ring in Shropshire that ever resulted in a substantial police investigation was the abuse of boys at Castle Hill School, which resulted in the Headmaster, Ralph Morris, being imprisoned. Ralph Morris was well-known in the Ludlow area in terms of businesses, local officials etc. Although other institutions for ‘troubled’ young people in Shropshire – including in the Ludlow area – were employing staff who also worked in children’s homes in north Wales and Gwynne, Dafydd and John Allen’s paw prints were everywhere in Shropshire, Ralph Morris and Castle Hill School were the only recipients of media and police interest.

On 12 April 1991 at Shrewsbury Crown Court, Ralph Morris the ‘Head’ of Castle Hill School, run under the guise of an independent school for young boys with behavioural and learning difficulties, was sentenced to 12 years in prison, on specimen charges of rape, indecent assault and physical, sexual and emotional abuse, from 1984. Twenty five local authorities placed children at Castle Hill, at a cost of over £19,000k per child per year.

31 boys were placed there by Harrow Social Services
At least 40 children were sent by Warwickshire Council
8 were sent by Somerset Council

Castle Hill was opened in 1981 and Morris and other staff abused hundreds of boys; there was of course a paedophile ring in operation. Morris was jailed for 12 years. Morris’s qualifications were bogus and although 25 Education Departments used his services, not one checked that he had 60 children in his care, when only licenced to ‘teach’ 39, and ‘no-one discovered’ that for over years he was systematically and violently abusing children in his care. One of Morris’s colleagues who worked at Castle Hill was also jailed for abusing kids.

April 1991: Ralph was at Shrewsbury Crown Court. I was at the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand Image result for the royal courts of justice images because of the perjury of the Drs Francis, Image result for medical defence union imageswhile St Helena was busy in a neighbouring Court.

It was Justice Desmond Fennell who presided over Ralph Morris’s trial, which was the result of an investigation begun after a meeting on 12 April 1989 between Shropshire Social Services, West Mercia Constabulary and the local authorities who were placing boys at Castle Hill. The investigation was led by Det Super John McCammont. After Ralph Morris was jailed, everyone was so pleased with themselves that Chris Brannan, Rob Jones and John D. Murch of the Child Protection Unit of Shropshire Social Services published ‘Castle Hill Report: Practice Guide’, which was commended by the Dept of Health and Dept of Education.

When was the Practice Guide following the Castle Hill School scandal written by Brannan et al published? Er, Jan 1993. F had just moved in with me and was under attack from the Gang and within a few weeks, F and I would be arrested and charged on the lies of Gwynedd social worker Jackie Brandt… The Depts of Health Official portrait of Baroness Bottomley of Nettlestone crop 2.jpg and Education  who commended the Practice Guide knew all about Jackie and her colleagues.

Sir Desmond Fennell was a member of Inner Temple who Chaired the Public Inquiry into the Nov 1987 King’s Cross Fire; Des published his Report in Nov 1988. Image result for sir desmond fennellSir Des died on 29 June 2011. Sir Des became well-known when he presided over the trials of the Shrewsbury Pickets in 1973, one of whom was Ricky Tomlinson, who later became known as the actor who played Jim Royle. The trial was considered overtly political, Grocer Heath’s Gov’t wanting to shaft the striking pickets. Ricky had a hard time but his fellow jailbird Dessie Warren was ruined by being forcibly dosed up with huge quantities of anti-psychotics when he was in prison. See ‘My Arse – It’s Tatifilarious’.

Exactly the same method used by Gwynne and Dafydd to Help those who refused to shut up about the Giggles. Everyone in the Bryn Golau Peep Show was prescribed what had destroyed Des Warren, before any Top Doc had even seen them. I refused to take it when I was told that ‘medication’ was available for me. I’m not sure why but none of the Angels ever forced it on me. That inappropriate medication was one of my key complaints that was investigated by Bluglass et al. Bluglass concluded that it was entirely reasonable to unlawfully abduct a young woman, illegally imprison her and plan to load her up with anti-psychotics before any Top Doc had made any meaningful ‘assessment’ and that Dafydd could not be criticised on any level re that prescription for ‘medication’.

But then MI5 filmed children being gang raped by that lot, so why should we be surprised at Bluglass’s conclusions?

Here comes the next Report of the Public Inquiry following the latest scandal to reassure us all that it Can Never Happen Again… See the source image

The media interest in Castle Hill School had an interesting history. In June 1989, Yorkshire TV approached Alison Taylor re a film about abuse in North Wales. It was in June 1989 that Tony Francis began orchestrating the Secret Case Conference about me and in July 1989, Bluglass et al conducted their whitewash of an ‘investigation’ of my complaint about the Gang. I began working for Bodger at St George’s in May 1989. Bodger and friends were still publishing with Ollie Brooke and Ollie was giving his address on journal articles as the Dept of Paediatrics at St George’s, although the world was told that Ollie had long gone, in disgrace, A Broken Man, His Life Ruined. See ‘Too Many Pills’.See the source image

On 12 Sept 1989, Alison Taylor was filmed extensively for Yorkshire Television. It was about that time that I appeared in Cardiff High Court with Ian Murphy defending me, Jeff Crowther having been called as a witness by Gwynedd Health Authority – who had brought the case against me – and Justice Cocklecarrot making Mandy Rice-Davies style jokes.

On 4 Oct 1989, Zany Python Graham Chapman died in a ‘posh hospital’ in London, the Bridgy contingent heard all about it…

In Feb 1990 Yorkshire Television abandoned their Gwynedd child abuse film in favour of the Castle Hill documentary. In Feb 1990, Keith Fearns and Jackie Brandt were perjuring themselves in affidavits in order for Gwynedd County Council to secure a High Court injunction against me from John Kay in Leeds High Court to prevent me from even writing to Gwynedd CC to pursue my complaints re unlawful imprisonment, assault etc…

The Crisis Meeting between Shropshire Social Services and West Mercia Police that kicked off the criminal investigation into Castle Hill School was in April 1989. I began working for Bodger in May 1989; my job with Bodger was a Trap and the advert for the job was placed in April 1989.

The activities in Ludlow will not have escaped the attention of the constituency MPs.

Christopher John Fred Gill (born 28 October 1936) was the Tory MP for Ludlow, 11 June 1987-14 May 2001. Gill was known as the “Butcher from Ludlow” because of his family company being a meat processing firm; he retired as Chairman of his family’s sausage-making business F.A. Gill Ltd., in 2006.

Gill was born in Wolverhampton, where he later became a local Councillor, and was educated locally at Birchfield Preparatory School, then at Shrewsbury School a la Sir Charles Evans, Michael Heseltine and the founders of ‘Private Eye’. Gill’s National Service was in the Royal Navy, serving aboard HMS Modeste and HMS Birmingham.

Gill had the Conservative whip withdrawn over the EC Finance Bill on 28 November 1994.

As a constituency MP, Gill fought against the closure of local cottage hospitals. Gill was also known for being an expert on areas of European Union legislation and he was a notable Eurosceptic. During the course of Parliamentary sessions up to 2001, Gill voted in favour of giving greater autonomy to schools, against removing hereditary peers from the House of Lords and against equal rights for homosexuals.See the source image

Shortly before leaving Parliament in 2001, Gill resigned his membership of the Conservatives. In 2006, Gill announced that he had joined the UK Independence Party (UKIP), having endorsed the Party’s policies at the 2004 European Parliament election. Gill was a member of UKIP’s National Executive Committee, 2007-10. Gill stood for Ludlow as a UKIP candidate at the 2010 General Election, coming fourth and losing his deposit. At the time of the General Election, Gill stated that his reasoning for standing was: “I am standing against ‘call me Dave’s’ Tories because I cannot tolerate their utter contempt for the concerns of voters on matters of immigration, economy, individual liberty and the broken promise of a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.” Gill served as Chairman of The Freedom Association from 2001, before becoming its President in 2007.

Christopher Gill was preceded as MP for Ludlow by the Tory Eric Paul Cockeram (born 4 July 1924). Cockeram served as MP for Bebington, 1970-Feb 1974. Bebington was on Dafydd’s Merseyside branch’s territory; the constituency had previously existed as ‘Birkenhead East’. Geoffrey Howe held Bebington, 1964-66. Cockeram was MP for Ludlow, 1979-87, suddenly retiring weeks before the 1987 General Election following allegations of multiple share applications for British Telecom and British Gas.

 

Nick Budgen was a keen huntsman and had hunted in 29 of the UK’s counties; he will have had good connections in Somerset, Devon and Leicestershire. Budgen wrote regularly for Horse and Hound and occasionally for the Wall Street Journal, The Times, Daily Mail, Glasgow Herald and The Irish Times. He took great joy in continuing Wolverhampton South West’s feud (begun by Enoch Powell) with Grocer Heath, heckling him at any opportunity. Budgen served as MP for Wolverhampton South West until 1 May 1997.

Budgen died from liver cancer at Stafford General Hospital on 26 October 1998. Tiny Rowland had died on 25 July 1998. Budgen’s funeral service was near his Lichfield farm at Lichfield Cathedral, where his grandfather had been Dean. The eulogy was given by his close friend and fellow Maastricht rebel Richard Shepherd, at his memorial service at St Margaret’s Church, Westminster and another close friend, Mr Charles Moore, gave a eulogy.

Previous posts have discussed James Loesche, a particularly unpleasant agri student who was at UCNW when I was; Loesche was the son of a wealthy farming family from Lichfield and he pissed off so many people that he was the subject of vigilante action in his (very civilised) hall of residence. After I began this blog I was told that Loesche had supplied ‘evidence’ about me and my ways to the Gang. I could believe that, James Loesche was deeply unpleasant and very unscrupulous. Most students at UCNW were basically friendly and quite good spirited; Loesche was so toxic and did so many unpleasant things to people that by the end of the first year even the most tolerant would not go near him.

On supporting Douglas Hurd in the 1990 Conservative Leadership contest Budgen stated “it is the Conservative worker’s fate to be betrayed by his leader, so we may at least be betrayed elegantly.”See the source image

Dafydd Wigley knew Ian Gow; they were either at school or Manchester University together.

Megan L-G was a close friend of Mr Thrope’s mum Ursula; Megan was Mr Thrope’s godmother and as a boy, Mr Thrope played with the Carey Evans children (David Lloyd-George’s grandchildren). As a young man, Mr Thrope had greatly admired David L-G and used him as a role model. Menai Williams, who worked at the Normal College for decades from the 1950s and ended up as Deputy Principal, was a Liberal and knew Megan; Menai was also a pal of Gwynne and Dafydd. See ‘Thought For The Day’. The Lloyd George family were still massively influential in Wales, particularly the north, when Gow was murdered.

The L-G’s married into the McAlpine clan (see ‘Edinburgh Wears Prada’), the most high profile being Lord (Robert) Alistair McAlpine, Thatch’s close friend who served as Tory Treasurer and fundraiser while Thatch was PM. Image result for margaret thatcher and alistair mcalpine imagesLord Alistair McA was wrongly named in the media as molesting boys at Bryn Estyn and a big See the source image and litigation followed. It was actually far more likely to have been Lord McA’s close relative James aka Jimmie McA who was doing that; Jimmie was President of Wrexham Golf Club, an organisation full of those who used the services of Gwynne and Dafydd… One of the Gang’s networking vehicles were Golf Clubs. Jimmie McAlpine died in hospital in Wrexham on 6 Nov 1991, when I was a patient on the psych ward in Ysbyty Gwynedd, as another Cunning Plan had been hatched by the Gang after Tony Francis pretended that peace had broken out and the series of High Court cases throughout 1990 and 91 had all been a terrible misunderstanding. See post ‘The Price Is Right’.

(Archibald) Douglas McAlpine was a neurologist who Trained at Glasgow University and worked at the Middlesex Hospital a la Lord Snowdon’s best man/Mr Thrope’s close friend Roger Gilliatt (who also became a neurologist) and Gwynne. Douglas became a big name in neurology and trained even bigger names, including Paul Sandifer, the Father Of Paediatric Neurology in Britain. Sandifer founded paediatric neurology at Great Ormond Street and was part of Ollie Brooke et al’s circle. All roads led to Bodger et al at St George’s, Brave Wendy et al at the London Hospital, Uncle Harry’s colleagues at Guy’s, Hugh Bentall and Lord Bob Winston’s crowd at Hammersmith, Savile HQ in Leeds etc and back to Gwynne and Dafydd. See previous posts. Those Trained by these giants migrated across the globe and became Eminent in other nations…

Lord (Robert) Alastair McA’s brother David was married to Welsh actress Angharad Rees of 1970s Poldark fame; Angharad was the daughter of Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate psych Linford Rees, who came from south Wales, spent much of his career at Lord Snowdon Central Bart’s and became Prof of Psychological Medicine there. Angharad’s first husband had been Dynasty actor Christopher Cazenove; after they spilt up, Angharad discussed Uganda with Alan Bates, most famous for wrestling in’t nude with Ollie Reed, Famed For his Drunken Violence And Sexual Exploitation. Linford enjoyed holding At Homes for the Stars at his place in Purley and had a sideline in passing around pics of his patients in the nuddy. They will have been rather more impressive than Ollie, but it was Ollie who made the millions.

How did that work out then Dafydd??

Ollie Reed famously keeled over and died while pissed in a drinking hole in Malta on 2 May 1999, another year that waved goodbye to many Insiders, including William Mars-Jones (10 Jan 1999) and Ioan Bowen Rees (4 May 1999).Image result for exodus bob marley images

There was a good reason for the Exodus in 1999; precisely that a far more significant Movement Of Jah People took place on 6 May 1999 when Jah People Moved straight into the newly created National Assembly for Wales. Just take a look at the biographies of the Jah People who were part of that Movement. The legacy remains, even if Lisa Nandy was delighted at her invitation to the Jah People’s Gala Dinner; that Senedd has become a laughing stock in Wales albeit a twisted laughing stock. The gang are so bloody ruthless that Jah Person Ioan Bowen Rees, former CEO of Gwynedd CC, Expert On Local Democracy and adviser to Dafydd Wigley and Gwynfor Evans, snuffed it two days before the other Jah People took their seats as AMs in the Assembly upon who’s establishment Ioan had advised.

A few links. Tiny Rowland was mates with Sir Jams Goldsmith’s crowd who frequented the Clermont Club. They included Lord Lucan who found St George’s Hospital most useful when Lady Lucan turned up with head injuries alleging that Lord L had tried to kill her. St George’s treated her as though she were Insane – Lady L had been Seeing A Psychiatrist (paid for by Lord Lucan, who was, according to Lady Lucan, conspiring with The Psychiatrist to have her denounced as Insane) – while a dead nanny lay in the basement, giving Lord L time to scarper never to be seen again. See previous posts. Bobby McAlpine (see ‘The Cash Box’) hung out with the Clermont Club, as did Victor Lownes.

Victor Aubrey Lownes III (April 17, 1928 – January 11, 2017) was an executive for HMH Publishing Company Inc., later known as Playboy Enterprises, from 1955 through the early 1980s. Soon after he met Hugh Hefner in 1954, Hefner founded Playboy magazine; Lownes eventually joined his publishing company, serving as Vice President. Lownes was a close confidant of Hefner and gained a reputation for dating Playboy Playmates. Lownes headed Playboy Europe and the UK Playboy Clubs from the mid-1960s until his dismissal in the early 1980s. Lownes oversaw Playboy Enterprises’s move into casino gambling in the UK in the 1960s, which became Playboy’s most successful business other than its publishing until the advent of cable television. Lownes’ oversaw the most successful part of Hefner’s attempt to diversify out of publishing and into motion pictures, hotels and casino gambling. During his time as Head of Playboy Europe, Lownes was Britain’s highest paid executive, drawing a large salary and eventually becoming Playboy Enterprises’s second biggest shareholder. Lownes is credited with creating Playboy Clubs in the United States.

Victor Aubrey Lownes III was born on April 17, 1928 in Buffalo, New York, the elder son of Victor Aubrey Lownes Jr. and Winifred (née Mark) Lownes. At the age of 12, Lownes accidentally shot and killed his best friend, which resulted in his forced enrollment at the New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell. While there, he met Nicky Hilton, Conrad Hilton‘s son, who became a friend.

Lownes matriculated at the University of Chicago in 1944 under the experimental “Chicago Plan” undergraduate program developed by then-Chancellor Robert Maynard Hutchins. In 1946, at the age of 18, Lownes wed fellow University of Chicago student Judith Downs. They had two children, Victor “Val” Aubrey Lownes IV and Meredith Lownes.

After several jobs, Victor Lownes found employment at Yale, the company owned by his grandfather. Following his father’s death, after seven years of marriage, Lownes rebelled against the middle class American dream and decided to abandon his family. Following the dissolution of his marriage, Lownes returned to Chicago, where he lived for several months entertaining young women. At a party in 1954, Lownes met Hugh Hefner, who had recently created Playboy magazine. Lownes was asked to write a couple of articles and in November 1955, he was offered a full-time job with the company as Promotions Director; he set about drumming up advertising for the pariah publication.

Advertising for a club called Gaslight in Chicago, Lownes saw an opportunity to diversify the Playboy brand and suggested to Hefner that Playboy should open a club of its own. Hefner immediately saw the commercial and promotional benefits. Plans for a Playboy Club began in 1959. Lownes’ then girlfriend suggested to Hefner the idea of dressing the hostesses in the image of the tuxedoed Playboy Bunny character. Hefner took some persuading as he had always viewed the rabbit as a male character but once he saw a prototype of the outfit he changed his mind.Image result for male rabbit mating behavior images

Under Lownes’ management, the first Playboy Club opened in downtown Chicago on 116 E Walton Street. It was essentially a bar with entertainment featuring Lady Playboy Bunnies serving drinks and performances by some big names in entertainment. The doors opened for the first time on February 29, 1960 and it was an immediate success. More clubs followed in other cities in the US.

In 1963, Lownes asked Hefner to send him to London to open the first British Playboy Club. He placed an advertisement in The Times’ personal columns that read: “American millionaire seeks a flat in the most fashionable part of London. Rents up to £100 a week.” He found a house at 3 Montpellier Square, opposite Harrods.

Gambling had recently been legalized in the UK and Lownes realized there was an opportunity to add the attraction of a casino to the nightclub. A Playboy Club was opened in the heart of the capital, at 45 Park Lane overlooking Hyde Park, on July 1, 1966 and was an immediate success. It was nicknamed the “Hutch on the Park.” Image result for male rabbit mating behavior imagesSee the source image

The Krays had control of much of the gambling world in London at the time and they were joined in that business by the Mafia, the Maltese Mafia included. The Gang’s protectors Richard Crossman and Lord Jack Jones were both friends with Dom Mintoff, the PM of Malta, who was also a Maltese Mafia don. Gwynne and Dafydd’s friend Lady Juliet Bingley, a key figure in MIND, as was her son William – William went on to become CEO of the Mental Health Act Commission, hold roles in NHS Trusts, academics posts at UK universities, run a charidee in South Asia and run his own management consultancy which he commissioned in his role as Chair of an NHS Trust – was a good friend of Dom Mintoff and Lady Juliet ‘built hospitals in Malta’. Lady J’s dad was Reginald Vick, Bart’s surgeon See the source imageand she married NATO commander Sir Admiral Alec Bingley. See previous posts.

“UK One”, as Lownes became known, slid easily into the feverish atmosphere of “Swinging London”. Regular parties were thrown at his house; attendees included such London Playboy Club habitués as The Beatles, George Best, Warren Beatty, Michael Caine, Judy Garland, Sean Connery, Terry Southern, Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate. In 1967, Lownes moved to 1 Connaught Square, which had previously been the London residence of Mary Augusta Ward, the novelist. A massive Francis Bacon painting acquired by Lownes during this time was so hideous that it was exiled to hanging in the hall, while a grandfather clock inside the property was painted by Timothy Leary.

In the 1970s, Playboy magazine encountered competition from a new generation of rival periodicals (most notably Penthouse and Hustler), precipitating a gradual decline in overall profitability. Gaming profits from the London casino kept rising, making future expansion into gaming very attractive. The Clermont Club in Berkeley Square, known for its celebrity clientele, was purchased in the spring of 1972, while the Manchester and Portsmouth Casino Clubs were opened in 1973.

Prior to his successful defence of Mr Thrope at the Old Bailey in 1979, George Carman QC was based in Manchester. Carman was involved with serious crime as well as with Gwynne, Dafydd, Jimmy Savile et al, had a major alcohol problem and was what would be categorised as a problem gambler. It was where Carman’s money went, even when he became very famous and very rich. Carman’s gaming debts were such that he retained the goodwill of the casinos by giving them legal advice, helping them acquire licences etc. Carman continued gambling when he relocated to London, even when he was a neighbour of Bodger and Lord Michael Havers in Wimbledon. See the source image

St George’s had a thriving Wine Society, run by Bodger’s Chief Lab Technician, corrupt MSF rep David Hole:See the source image

In London, Miranda was Carman’s pupil and Cherie shared Chambers with him until 1988.

A large rural property a few miles from London was added to the Playboy organization in 1972: Stocks House, a Georgian mansion located outside Aldbury, Hertfordshire. As well as being Victor Lownes’ residence the mansion was used as a training camp for Playboy bunnies and was well known for hosting extravagant parties, including the 1978 25-hour party (to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of Playboy magazine), when guests and Bunny Girls who were given green dots to wear, and were allowed upstairs to Stocks’ many bedrooms. Parties at Stocks House were attended by a number of celebrities of the day including Peter Cook, John Cleese, Christopher Reeve, Jack Nicholson, Keith Moon and Tony Curtis. Some shots in the music video for the 1982 song “Our House” by Madness were filmed at Stocks House. The house and swimming pool also featured on the cover of the 1997 Oasis album, Be Here Now.

Despite rowdy celebrations at Stocks, Lownes became popular with villagers for his support for local charities.

Stocks House was on the border of Buckinghamshire, near Stoke Mandeville Hospital. Bodger’s mate Cilla lived in Buckinghamshire and the Bingley family home was in Hertfordshire. These were people who liked entertaining, holding At Homes etc.

With the gaming license approval for the Victoria Sporting Club in February 1981, Playboy Enterprises became the largest and one of the most profitable gaming operators in the UK. They had three London casinos, two provincial casinos, interests in two others, 72 off track betting parlours, and six bingo parlours.

By 1975, Hefner’s penchant for becoming involved in various ventures (including the film-oriented Playboy Productions, Playboy Records and the Playboy Press) before losing interest had exacerbated the lack of profitability in many areas of Playboy Enterprises. Lownes was briefly recalled to Chicago by Hefner as a hatchet man. He was given virtually unlimited powers; on the job, Lownes was so dedicated to cutting expenses that he was known within the company as “Attila” or “Jaws”.

Under the auspices of the fledgling Playboy Productions unit, Lownes was the Executive Producer for And Now For Something Completely Different (1971), the first Monty Python film. Lownes was a fan and proposed the idea of a film specifically designed to introduce Python to a U.S. audience. According to Terry Gilliam, Lownes insisted on getting an animated Executive Producer credit equal in size to those of the group members. Gilliam refused and so Lownes had the credit made elsewhere at his own cost. Gilliam then created a different style of credit for the Pythons so Lownes’ credit is the only one that appears in this way. In their later film, Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl (1982), Gilliam burlesqued the incident by giving one Python a credit name three times the size of anyone else’s: “MICHAEL PALIN – as the man with the biggest credit”.

Lownes was out partying with Roman Polanski when Sharon Tate was murdered by the Manson family in August 1969. Later, Lownes persuaded Hefner to provide $1,500,000 to finance Polanski’s film Macbeth (1971) through Playboy Productions when no other movie studio would touch it. Polanski proceeded to go $600,000 over budget and then mock Playboy’s generosity. Lownes terminated his friendship with Polanski over his behaviour. Angrily, he returned a cherished gift to Polanski, the life-sized gold penis Polanski had modelled for during happier days. Lownes wrote that “I’m sure you’ll have no difficulty finding some friend you can shove it up”.

By 1981, Lownes was back in London, serving as Senior Vice President at Playboy Enterprises with a portfolio encompassing the profitable casinos. He was leading the effort to open up Atlantic City, New Jersey for gambling from his London base. Work was started on the future Atlantic City casino building. Lownes was accused of irregularities by the Gaming Board for Great Britain as the project progressed. Hefner panicked, firing Lownes before his scheduled meeting with the committee in an obvious attempt to save the New Jersey deal. Without him, the company’s British gaming license was revoked and Playboy lost their most valuable assets. Additionally, Playboy’s temporary gaming license in Atlantic City was not renewed.

Playboy, which made $31 million in the year ending June 30 1981, lost more than $51 million in the year ending June 30 1982. With the loss of its gaming assets, Playboy barely survived. In 1990, Hefner and Lownes reconciled after a nine-year estrangement.

Lownes had accumulated a fortune during his years as Britain’s highest paid executive and he still had his wife, Marilyn Cole, whose affections he and Hefner had both attempted to gain. Marilyn was the first full frontal Playboy Playmate of the Month, in January 1972, and the Playmate of the Year 1973. Marilyn continued to pose for Playboy until 1984 and became a journalist who has written for The Observer, Esquire and GQ. During this period, Lownes invested in several successful West End theatre productions, including Other People’s Money See the source imageand Stomp

Lownes reconciled with Polanski following his dismissal. During the Roman Polanski libel case against Vanity Fair in July 2005, Lownes was ill and could not attend the trial, so wife went in his place. Lownes died on January 11 2017 at the age of 88 from a heart attack in London.

Marilyn Cole (born 7 May 1949) was Playboy magazine’s January 1972 Playmate of the Month. Marilyn was the magazine’s first full-frontal nude centrefold. Marilyn also became 1973’s Playmate of the Year. Her original pictorial was photographed by Alexas Urba.

Marilyn Cole worked at a Post Office punched card unit in Portsmouth Central Telephone Exchange, before working for £12 weekly at the Portsmouth Co-op Fuel Office when she was interviewed to be a Playboy Bunny at the London Playboy Club. Marilyn worked as a bunny from 1971 to 1974 and within a few days of starting work there was noticed by Victor Lownes and test photographed for the magazine.

Marilyn appeared on the cover of the Roxy Music album StrandedSee the source image having been noticed by Bryan Ferry after winning Playmate of the Year. Marilyn had previously appeared on the covers of various Top of the Pops albums. Marilyn now works as a journalist and among the subjects that she writes about is professional boxing, which she began covering in 2000. Marilyn Cole’s interests include the tango, which she studied under Paul Pellicoro, and she has partnered with actor Brian Cox.

Her husband Robin announced her death in a statement, released in conjunction with her children: “On Monday Lucy Birley (nee Helmore) passed away whilst on holiday in Ireland, surrounded by her beloved dogs, Daisy, Peg and Daphne. Her husband Robin, and her sons – Otis, Isaac, Tara and Merlin – are understandably devastated and request that their privacy be respected during this difficult time”. In an obituary posted on his blog, sometime friend Duncan Roy wrote of Lucy’s addiction, stating: “Every addict wants to die sooner than God planned.”

Lucy Margaret Mary Birley (formerly Ferry; née Helmore; 18 September 1959 – 23 July 2018) was a British model and London socialite, who was divorced from Bryan Ferry and married to Robin Birley.

Robin Marcus Birley (born 19 February 1958) is an English businessman, entrepreneur and political donor. He had a brother, Rupert, who disappeared and is presumed deceased, and has a sister, India Jane Birley. Robin Birley owns and runs 5 Hertford Street (5HS), a private members’ club in Mayfair. Having found a dilapidated block of buildings in Shepherd Market, Mayfair, he raised £30 million to refurbish them lavishly – fashion designer Rifat Özbek was commissioned to design the interiors – and duly opened 5 Hertford Street in June 2012 with a spectacular launch party attended by Mick Jagger, Kate Moss, and Daphne Guinness. The basement nightclub was named Loulou’s after Birley’s late cousin, Loulou de la Falaise. Over the following five years, 5HS became a staple of London’s social scene and is where Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle had their first date. The success of 5HS emboldened Birley to launch new membership-based venues.

Oswald’s, a club for wealthy oenophiles (wine lovers), See the source image in a townhouse on Albemarle Street, is due to open in February 2018. It has also been reported that Birley has secured an option on two adjoining townhouses in Berkeley Square – almost next door to Annabel’s – to launch a business-focussed club. Meanwhile, in November 2017, Avenue reported that Birley is close to finalising a deal to commence work on a major new club, akin to 5HS but with bedrooms for members as well, near Union Square, Manhattan.

Lucy Birley was born in the Shropshire of Lord David Harlech See the source imageand John Biffen Image result for john biffen imagesLucy’s father worked for many years at the Lloyd’s of London insurance corporation. Lucy was photographed by photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, and was a London socialite for years, attending parties and fashion shows. “She was making an impact on the fashion world too, beyond her modelling assignments. Designers such as Christian Lacroix, Manolo Blahnik and Philip Treacy have cited her as an influence on their work”.

Birley (then Helmore) posed as the cover model for Roxy Music’s album Avalon (although Lucy is not really visible because the photo on the album cover is substantially of a weird helmet that Lucy is wearing). Lucy was 22 yrs old and Ferry 14 years her senior when they married on 26 June 1982, at the Church of St Anthony and St George at Duncton, West Sussex. The couple have four sons: Otis, Isaac, Tara, and Merlin.

The Ferrys divorced on 31 March 2003; Lucy was reportedly paid £10 million in the settlement. In October 2006, Lucy married Robin Birley, the 48-year-old son of Lady Annabel Goldsmith and Mark Birley.

Previous posts have discussed how Alun Davies, the thick as a brick crook who ended up at the very top of NHS senior management in Gwynedd, arrived at Gwynedd Health Authority as a lowly pen pusher in the early-mid 1980s, was kicked about by the Top Docs, including Tony Francis. I have a copy of a real hissy fit of a letter written to Davies from Francis in the mid 1980s because Davies had dared write a note to another minion in which he said that he would ‘chase him on this’ ie. follow a matter up with Francis. Francis saw the note, went apeshit that Davies had used such a disrespectful phrase and received a grovelling apology from Davies. These were people charged with running an NHS…

Alun Davies hated north Wales and north Wales people; he had relocated from George Thomas HQ in the Rhondda and I now realise that Davies was part of the Gang’s Rescue Plan after Mary Wynch caused such a sensation. I was only told the other day that Glenys Windbag of Holyhead was the key to Davies’s arrival in Gwynedd and probably his rise to the top of NHS management as well, although he can barely string together a coherent sentence. It could only be described as Grotesque Chaos.

From 1977 until 1982 Ioan Evans was Secretary to the Welsh group of Labour MPs and active on an array of Labour backbench committees. In 1982 he was appointed as an opposition spokesman on Europe, serving under Gwynne and Dafydd’s accomplice Eric Heffer. The following year Ioan was appointed as a junior spokesman on Welsh Affairs.

The Aberdare constituency was abolished in 1983, but Evans was elected for the new Cynon Valley constituency which had very similar boundaries to the previous seat. He died the following year, aged 56, in Hillingdon, and Ann Clwyd was elected as his successor at the subsequent by-election.

Ioan is immortalised in the Dictionary of Welsh Biography, which tells us more:

Ioan Evans…was educated at Llanelli Grammar School and the University College of Wales, Swansea.

Swansea University has been dominated by the Ale Twat’s family for many decades, as discussed in ‘A Bit More Paleontology’. Swansea University provided the Ale Twat and others with many useful connections, some of which are discussed in ‘A Bit More Paleontology’, but I haven’t flagged up one who has featured on the blog previously as much as I should.

John Scott Fulton

27 May 1902
Dundee, Scotland

Died 14 March 1986 (aged 83)
Thornton-le-Dale, North Yorkshire, England
Nationality British
Occupation University administrator, public servant

John Scott Fulton, Baron Fulton (27 May 1902-14 March 1986), served as Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wales and of the University of Sussex, and was Chair of the Universities Central Council on Admissions between 1961 and 1964. Fulton became a Governor of the BBC, serving as Vice-Chairman, led the Committee on the Civil Service which reported in 1968, and was Chairman of the British Council, 1968-71.

Fulton was born in Dundee in 1902 and attended the High School of Dundee. He then studied at the University of St Andrews, and at Balliol College, Oxford. Fulton became a lecturer at the LSE, before returning to Balliol College in 1928 as a fellow and tutor in philosophy. Fulton’s title was changed to ‘politics’ in 1935 and he remained at Balliol until 1947 and was there while Balliol hosted Grocer Heath, Woy, Denis Healey et al. During WW II, Fulton worked for a time in the Mines Department and in the Ministry of Fuel and Power; during this time Fulton became a friend and colleague of Harold Wilson

Between 1947 and 1959, Fulton was Principal of University College, Swansea; he served as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wales, 1952-54 and 1958-59. At the time much of the University of Wales was facilitating the embryonic trafficking ring facilitated by Gwynne in the years immediately preceding the Profumo Affair. Image result for male rabbit mating behavior imagesPrevious posts discussed how many then undistinguished academics – eg. physical chemist Sir John Meurig Thomas, a Swansea graduate himself See the source image and his colleague physicist Sir Gareth Gwyn Roberts, See the source imagea UCNW graduate – who were working in UCNW during that time found their careers blossoming once the Gwynne Row blew up and then hitting stratospheric levels of success during/after the Waterhouse Inquiry and subsequent times of anxiety for the Gang.

Between 1952 and 1955, John Fulton was Chairman of the Universities’ Council for Adult Education and the Council of the National Institute of Adult Education.

In 1959, Fulton was appointed Principal of the University College of Sussex, which became the University of Sussex (and Fulton the Vice-Chancellor) when students started in 1961. Fulton left in 1967, to be succeeded by Asa Briggs. During his time as VC of Sussex, Fulton played a large part in the formation of the Universities Central Council on Admissions, serving as Chairman, 1961-64. It was the UCCA database that was one of the many that were being misused by the Gang to target victims and witnesses…

Fulton was a member of the Planning Committee of the Open University, 1967-70. The OU was Harold Wilson’s Proud Achievement, but like everything Wilson, it was under the control of rotten eggs; Nye’s widow Jennie Lee and Wilson’s crooked lawyer and close friend Lord Arnold Goodman – himself a friend of Lord Bob Boothby, both of them being Of The Gang – were appointed to establish the OU, assisted by Fulton, Asa and others, mostly from Sussex University.

Sussex didn’t just host John Allen’s Brighton brothels to which kids in care from north Wales were trafficked, but it had long been the favoured area for the country homes of the Bloomsbury Group. Image result for male rabbit mating behavior images

John Fulton became involved in university policy making overseas, Image result for male rabbit mating behavior imagesincluding in Malta, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Hong Kong. In 1962 Fulton Chaired the committee that established the new Chinese University of Hong Kong. John Fulton served as Chairman of the Inter-University Council for Higher Education Overseas from 1964 until 1968. What better idea than to appoint a man who was facilitating Gwynne and Dafydd’s trafficking ring at a senior academic level to advise on University Policy at an International Level?

From 1962 to 1965, Fulton was Chairman of both the BBC and ITA Committees on Adult Education. He served as a BBC governor, 1966-71, serving twice as Vice-Chairman (1966–1967 and 1968–1971). Hugh Carleton Greene was DG of the BBC, 1960-69 and was famously held responsible by Mary Whitehouse for the Filth On The BBC. Greene was a rather unsavoury man, but Whitehouse was on board with Robert Bluglass, Gwynne, Dafydd et al and thus was not really in a position to throw stones. Greene was a pal of Richard Crossman; Greene was the brother of Graham Greene as well as Raymond Greene, a Top Doc and mountaineer who knew Sir Charles Evans and all of them worked for the British security services.

Because of the bad PR for the BBC that Wilson felt emanated from Greene as DG – the bad PR was created virtually entirely by Mary Whitehouse, Lord Longford and their associates – Harold Wilson appointed a Safe Pair Of Hands as Chairman of the BBC in 1967; Gwynne and Dafydd’s very good friend Top Doc Lord Charles Hill aka Charlie Corkscrew of the BMA, Helping Nye Create The NHS and ‘I Was Winston Churchill’s Doctor You Know’ fame (see ‘BMA Calling, BMA Calling’) who had been kicked out of the Cabinet by Supermac in the Night of the Long Knives in July 1962 because of the trouble that Hill and his mates were causing. See previous posts.

The influence of Jimmy Savile in particular at the BBC rapidly increased once Charlie Corkscrew became Chairman. Charlie Corkscrew worked for the security services as well, he had been employed by the BBC to broadcast propaganda during the 1940s in the guise of the Radio Doctor, as discussed in ‘BMA Calling, BMA Calling’.Image result for male rabbit mating behavior imagesSee the source image

So Harold Wilson played a blinder; to reassure the nation that the Filth at the BBC propagated by the too-liberal Swinging 60s Greene had been stopped, he placed the BBC in the safe hands of a Square who spouted hypocritical nonsense about We Doctors whilst he worked with a gang of paedophiles who produced child porn with added bestiality. See the source imageLittle wonder that the BBC developed a substantial problem with molesting children’s entertainers in the 1970s.

The Hugh Carleton Greene Filth that so traumatised Mary Whitehouse included That Was The Week That Was, Z Cars, The Wednesday Play, Cathy Come Home, Doctor Who, Top of the Pops, Horizon, Tomorrow’s World, Dr Kildare, Omnibus.

The Filth that emanated from Charles Hill included the threats, forged documentation, lies, unlawful arrests and imprisonment, assaults and the murder of witnesses, including my friend Anne, that followed the Gwynne Row, Charlie Corkscrew being alive and kicking until 22 Aug 1989; think Bluglass et al, Bodger, Ollie Brooke and co at St George’s…See the source image

Zany Python Graham who was one of the stars of Greene’s era at the BBC died two months after Charlie Corkscrew.

I was entertained by the Scary Dr Who creation, the Weeping Angels:

The Weeping Angels are a race of predatory creatures resembling stone statues. They were introduced in the 2007 episode “Blink“, making repeat appearances in the two-part story, “The Time of Angels” and “Flesh and Stone” (2010), and “The Angels Take Manhattan” (2012) as well as cameo appearances in “The God Complex” (2011), “The Time of the Doctor” (2013) and “Hell Bent” (2015). They also feature in the spin-off series Class, in the first series finale “The Lost” (2016). Since their initial appearance, they have been persistently nominated as one of the most popular and frightening Doctor Who monsters.

The Weeping Angels are better than the Ice Warriors or the Silurians which was the worst that Dr Who threw at us when I was a kid. I knew someone when I was a child who wrote to the BBC and asked for a picture of an Ice Warrior; the BBC wrote a nice letter back but refused to provide a pic of an Ice Warrior. I never knew why because they must have had hundreds of pictures of Ice Warriors… I suspect that the BBC might have noticed that request because of the surname of the school boy who was writing in.

Wilson invited Fulton to Chair the Committee on the Civil Service in 1964. Reporting in 1968, it found that administrators were not professional enough, in particular lacked management skills, and included the creation of a Civil Service College Image result for male rabbit mating behavior imagesas one of its 158 recommendations.

In 1968, Fulton’s international work continued as he became Chairman of the British Council, serving until 1971.

Fulton became a Knight Bachelor in 1964 and a life peer on 19 January 1966 as Baron Fulton.

Fulton’s parents were Angus Robertson Fulton, who was Principal of University College, Dundee and his wife, Annie Scott. He married Jacqueline Wilkinson in 1939 and they had three sons and one daughter.

In terms of the medical students/Top Docs at St Andrew’s University, Bluglass’s alma mater, there is a close relationship with Dundee. The students and Top Docs at St Andrew’s undertake placements at Dundee as well.

John Fulton died at home in Thornton-le-Dale in North Yorkshire on 14 March 1986. My friend Anne was killed in April 1986.

Never mind an Ice Warrior, here comes Zany Python Graham and the son of the Governor of the Bank of England to make friends with everyone in Bridgy…

 

[Ioan Evans] earned his living as a clerk for the Midland Bank, 1943-45, served in the army, 1945-48, and was a lecturer under the auspices of the WEA and the National Central Labour College from 1948-50. Evans was secretary to the Birkenhead Co-operative Party, 1950-53,

Birkenhead, turf of the Gang.

and to the Birmingham Co-operative Party, 1953-64. He held a large number of public offices including serving as chairman of the Labour League of Youth from 1948 until 1950. He also served as the director of the Birmingham Printers Ltd, a co-operative venture… He was a JP for Birmingham, 1960-70, and for Middlesex from 1970.

He…[was] the successor to Arthur Probert MP, for Aberdare, 1974-83, and the re-named Cynon Valley constituency from 1983 until his premature death. From 2 May 1966 to 26 September 1966, Evans was a substitute member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. He served for two years, 1964-66, as parliamentary private secretary to Tony Benn as Postmaster-General… In 1966 he became an assistant government whip, achieving promotion to chief whip and Controller of the Household in 1968.

Following his defeat at the polls in June 1970, Ioan Evans became the Director of the International Defence and Aid Fund. Immediately upon his return to the House of Commons in February 1974, he was chosen as secretary of the Welsh Labour group of MPs. At the end of 1974 he resigned as parliamentary private secretary to the Secretary of State for Wales, John Morris…

From 1977 he returned to his work as secretary to the Welsh group of Labour MPs, and continued in this position until 1982 and was most active on an array of Labour backbench committees. In 1982 be became a Labour front-bench spokesman on the EEC, and in 1983 was appointed Junior Welsh Affairs spokesman working alongside Barry Jones MP.

Lord Baz was a school teacher from north east Wales who became the President of the Flintshire branch of the NUT, served as the Labour MP for East Flintshire which evolved into Alyn and Deeside, 18 June 1970-14 May 2001 and has been of great assistance to the Gang, serving as the Windbag’s Shadow Secretary of State during the Paedophile Years. Lord Baz was well-rewarded; the peerage followed as well as roles with charidees, NEWI/Glyndwr University, the Deeside Business Forum, Army Cadets of Wales and as High Sheriff…

At the June 1983 general election he was returned by a majority of more than 13,000 votes over his Liberal Democrat opponent. Throughout his period at Westminster he also chaired a number of parliamentary committees and groupings. He was considered an authority on Welsh issues and Welsh affairs. Evans was also much interested in European affairs, and thus served on a number of committees associated with the Consultative Assembly of the Council of Europe, the Western European Union and the Parliamentarians for World Order. In 1982 he returned to the front bench of the House of Commons, after twelve years on the backbenches, now as number two to Eric Heffer, the opposition spokesman on European and Community affairs.

Ioan Evans was always viewed as a conscientious and hard-working constituency MP and a staunch supporter of the Labour Party and the labour movement. Although a front bench spokesman for much of his parliamentary career, he never allowed this commitment to restrict his frequent, and often telling interventions in the House, sometimes during Prime Minister’s question time. At the time of his untimely death, he was secretary of the Tribune group of left-wing Labour MPs. During the last week of his life, Evans had spared no effort to attempt to ensure that Wales should be excluded from the government’s controversial new Rates Bill in standing committee and also made a major speech in the House of Commons during a debate on the Welsh Rate Support Grant Settlement.

In 1949 he married Maria Griffiths JP and they had one son and one daughter. They lived at 169 Eastcote Road, Ruislip, Middlesex. Evans died at Hillingdon, 10 February 1984, at the age of 56. His funeral service was held at St Elvan’s church, Aberdare.

The Heidi Koseda Scandal was a Child Protection Failure as a result of the Failures of Hillingdon Local Authority. Heidi’s death in Nov 1984 was the cause of particularly dreadful tabloid headlines re Wicked Parents and Heidi’s mum Rosemary was sent to Broadmoor, what with her being Evil. Take a close look at the details of the Koseda case; this was a matter of two terrified young parents who for some reason refused to have anything to do with Top Docs after Rosemary, who suddenly metamorphosed from a competent and caring young mother into an Evil Monster, had an unspecified bad experience in hospital. There were numerous lies told about the Kosedas and the alleged circumstances of Heidi’s death. The Serious Case Review that followed the death of Heidi and the conviction of her parents was carried out by accomplices of those who had Failed. It was the Gang again, THEM, goodness knows what really went on but it was not as was reported. See previous posts…

And so it came to pass that Wimmin’s Champ Ann was elected as Labour MP for the Cynon Valley on 3 May 1984. Ann Clwyd winning her seat in 1984

I’ve been told that a Little Bird Told Ann about the leftie UCNW student who’d made a complaint about Gwynne, had refused to back down when threatened, that Brown had joined in as well and that things were spiralling. Little Birds would indeed have told Ann, she was a UCNW graduate, she and her husband were from north Wales, they were journos, Ann had previous re Denbigh and the Gang, what better than a Nice Young Labour Feminist as the MP for the Cynon Valley, which was also a recipient to kids in care from north Wales who wouldn’t keep quiet? Then there was the George Thomas link, not to mention the Windbaggery. By the time that Ann had been elected, the C&A Hospital had given me a blood transfusion with infected blood but as they couldn’t do anything properly at all, I didn’t contract HIV or Hepatitis no matter how they tried.

Eric Sunderland arrived as Principal of UCNW in May 1984; that was because Sir Charles Evans had been given a push as a result of me as well. Sunderland had been headhunted from a senior post at Durham University but was an old lag of the Gang, having grown up in the Ammanford area and completed his BSc and MSc at Aberystwyth University. Eric had worked for the NCB as a young man and I was always told that Mrs Sunderland was the daughter of a family from the North East who either owned or managed coal pits.

Because of the 1984-85 NUM strike there was a great deal of networking and joint activism between coal areas, including south Wales, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Durham and Fife. Each area had an excellent supply of MPs who were prepared to sell-out as well as faux sympathetic Top Docs who could wear worried expressions and express deep concern over the Effects Of The Strike On Our Communities. Meanwhile Thomas Jones aka Lord Maelor, the cross-dressing former teacher and Labour MP for Bertrand Russell’s constituency, 1951-66, spontaneously combusted on 18 Nov 1984 at his home near Wrexham. See the source imageLord Maelor’s brother Idwal Jones (who died on 18 Oct 1982) served as the Labour MP for Wrexham, 1955-70. Thomas and Idwal grew up in the coal mining area near Wrexham.

See post ‘Slaves Perfect Slaves’ for details on Lord Maelor, his brother and others who served as MPs for the constituency that embraced Bertrand Russell/Cwm Croesor.

In late 1976, Roy Mason told the Labour Party conference that “Ulster had had enough of initiatives, White Papers and legislation for the time being, and now needed to be governed firmly and fairly”. He rejected both military and political solutions in favour of “justice for all; with equality before the law; and, crucially, with republican terrorism treated as a security problem, and nothing else”

While Secretary of State for Defence Mason had been responsible for the introduction of SAS units into the ‘bandit country’ of South Armagh. At Stormont Mason was responsible for the tougher role taken by the security forces and authorised an increase in British Army covert tactics with the SAS allowed to operate throughout Northern Ireland. Mason’s time in Northern Ireland was characterised by a reduction in violence; “in 1976 there were 297 deaths in Northern Ireland; in the next three years the figures were 111, 80, 120. In 1977 he stood up to militant loyalists attempt to repeat their successful Ulster Workers Council strike tactic of 1974. In the same year he twice attempted to get some movement towards a political settlement from the local political parties but both attempts failed.

Mason’s policies in Northern Ireland earned the ire of Irish nationalist MPs. This played a part in the March 1979 vote of no confidence, which the Labour Gov’t lost by one vote, precipitating the 1979 general election. Nationalist MP Gerry Fitt abstained in the vote of no confidence, stating that he could not support a government with Mason as its Northern Ireland secretary.

After Labour’s election defeat in 1979 Mason came under increasing pressure from some on the left in his constituency party and from Arthur Scargill but did not countenance joining the SDP. Mason received full police protection, over 30 years after leaving office. In 1982 the then Energy Secretary Nigel Lawson suggested to Thatch that she should make Mason the next Chairman of the NCB, but Thatch refused, saying that Mason was “Not one of us”. Instead, Ian MacGregor was appointed.

After Mason’s retirement from the House of Commons at the 1987 General Election, he was created a life peer on 20 October 1987 taking the title Baron Mason of Barnsley.

On 18 Nov 1987, the King’s Cross Fire killed 31 people. I’ve been told that this was an attempt to kill me; I was due to be there at the time of the fireball but I’d changed my plans. See the source imageDr Dafydd Alun JonesSee the source imageIn July 1987, the Leo Abse inspired plan to have me fitted up and imprisoned unravelled when not enough people told not enough lies, shortly after that Dafydd told me over the phone that if I dropped my complaints about him he’d get me a place at Liverpool Medical School; Brown was listening into the call and we subsequently told Alwyn Jones, my solicitor in Bangor and complaints were made to Gwynedd Health Authority. No action was taken at any point.

Shortly before Dafydd tried bribing me, he told me that if I didn’t withdraw my complaints about him, he’d have me arrested and ‘detained in Risley Remand Centre’. I told him not to be so bloody ridiculous. Hot on the heels on that conversation came a High Court injunction from Tony Francis, secured on the basis of perjury, courtesy of Hempsons and the MDU, with the initial threat to apply to have me jailed. Hempsons dropped that part of the bollocks when I confronted them.

In Oct 1987 DATE?? Brown’s brother and I went to Denbigh to confront Dafydd; we were told by an unidentified administrator that Dafydd wasn’t there and no-one knew when he would be. We went into the main building and we found Stephen Bagnall, a former kid in care from Wrexham with whom I’d been friends when I’d been in the Bryn Golau Peep Show, Dec 1986-Jan 1987. Stephen looked terrible, he was skeletal, his face and head were covered in bruises and cuts and his hands were raw and bleeding because he couldn’t stop chewing them. He told me that as soon as I’d left the Peep Show, Dafydd had sectioned him for a year. See the source imageAngels saw us talking to Stephen and broke up the chat… As Brown’s brother and I left the premises, we were tailgated down the drive and onto the public road by Alun Davies. After I began this blog I was told that Stephen was murdered by Angels days after we met him. Someone tried to murder Brown’s brother shortly afterwards; further serious attempts on Brown’s brother’s life followed. See eg. ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Have You Killed Today?’

Roy Mason lived in the same semi-detached house with his wife Marjorie from their marriage until he was aged 84. Mason died at Highgrove Nursing Home, Barnsley, of cerebrovascular disease, one day after his 91st birthday, on 19 April 2015. He was survived by his wife and his two daughters.

Roy Mason was succeeded as MP for Barnsley by Eric Illsley:

Eric Evlyn Illsley (born 9 April 1955) was suspended from the Labour Party after being charged with false accounting as part of the Parliamentary expenses scandal and then sat as an Independent. When Illsley pleaded guilty to three counts of false accounting on 11 January 2011, he became the first sitting MP to be convicted of a criminal offence in the scandal. Illsley resigned from the Commons on 8 February 2011 and was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment on 10 February 2011.

Illsley was born in Kendray, West Riding of Yorkshire and educated at Hunningley Lane Junior School, Barnsley’s Holgate Grammar School for Boys and the University of Leeds, where he graduated in Law in 1977. Illsley was an official for the NUM for ten years, including during the 1984–1985 NUM. In the NUM, Illsley was a compensation officer from 1978-81, Assistant Head of General Department, 1981-84 and Head of General department and Chief Administration Officer, 1984-87.

When Roy Mason announced his retirement in October 1986, Illsley was nominated by the NUM in the selection of a Labour candidate for Barnsley Central. Illsley was viewed as being on the left of the Labour Party while his main opponent was Ronnie Fisher, a Barnsley Borough Councillor identified as a moderate. The General Secretary of the Yorkshire NUM, Sam Thompson, wrote to NUM members encouraging them to attend the selection meeting in January 1987. Illsley was selected and then easily elected to the Commons in June 1987. Dr Dafydd Alun JonesSee the source image Illsley was on the frontbench while Labour were in opposition, See the source imagebut was a backbencher after they won power in 1997. Illsley voted against the privatisation of the National Air Traffic Services (NATS).

On 11 March 2003, Illsley claimed in a speech to the House regarding possible military action in Iraq: “The report states that any military action must be on the basis of UN resolutions. I fully agree: as a Committee member, I stand by that statement, and believe that there must be a second resolution before any military action is taken against Iraq”. One week later he voted in favour of military action against Iraq, despite the failure of the US-led coalition to secure the second UN resolution. Illsley voted in favour of the introduction of identity cards in the UK.

Illsley voted against a bill proposing transparency in MPs’ allowances and the publication of a list of allowed expenses, otherwise known as the John Lewis List. Illsley claimed £149,700 in expenses including £90,000 staff costs.

On 19 June 2009 Illsley was one of dozens of MPs identified by the Daily Telegraph as having made “phantom” claims for council tax on his parliamentary expenses, receiving thousands of pounds more than he was entitled to. Illsley was thought to have made the highest phantom claim – over £6,000. Illsley claimed over £10,000 for council tax in four years although he was charged £3,966 for his Band C property in Lambeth, south London, in this period. Illsley regularly submitted claims for £200 a month, which meant that he did not have to submit receipts.

Shortly after re-election as a Labour MP in the 2010 General Election, on 19 May 2010, Illsley was charged with three counts of false accounting. He was suspended from the Labour Party and had the Labour whip withdrawn in the House of Commons. On 11 January 2011, Illsley pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court to three charges. He was to be sentenced in February 2011 and if he received a prison sentence of more than 12 months, he would have been automatically disqualified as an MP under the Representation of the People Act 1981, causing a by-election at Barnsley Central. Illsley stated his intention to resign as an MP before sentencing, and on 8 February he was formally appointed Steward of the Chiltern Hundreds, vacating his seat. A by-election followed on 3 March 2011. Illsley was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment on 10 February 2011 and was released on 13 May 2011 after serving three months. Illsley wore an electronic tag for the remainder of his term.

On 13 October 2011, Illsley appeared on BBC Newsnight on which he described his inflated expenses claims as “an allowance for living in London”. He also revealed that he receives a Parliamentary pension, although he refused to disclose the amount.

Dafydd Wigley states in his Daily Post column that between 1974 and 1979 he campaigned ‘vigorously for slate quarrymen’s compensation, as did the Anglesey MP Cledwyn Hughes, Union District Organiser Idwal Roberts, the Wales TUC and many others. Facing Parliamentary defeat in 1979, Labour negotiated Plaid support by finally introducing the 1979 Pneumoconiosis Bill. It passed in the Labour government’s dying days – largely thanks to Michael Foot, Labour’s Leader of the House, with whom we negotiated the deal’.

Footie from the extensive House Of Foot in Plymouth, bent lawyers and Liberal as well as Labour Party politicians (see eg. ‘The Bay Of Pigs Invasion’). Footie who dated back to the 1940s, KGB double agents in the British security services, Lord Beaverbrook – for whom Footie worked and got on with very well – Footie who had exotic sexual tastes himself and kept the dirt out of the press by reminding journos when they did threaten to publish that he had the dirt on Lord Beaverbrook and Rothermere… I quite admire Footie for doing that, but I’d admire him more if he’d had his priorities right and had brought down the whole lot of them See the source imageinstead of pursuing the blood of my friends and I.

It was in 1979 that Mary lingered in Denbigh for a year. 1979 also saw the action with Mr Thrope at the Old Bailey  and it was in the first part of 1979 when Shirl was still Education Secretary that Dafydd Wigley asked her to hold a Public Inquiry into the mismanagement of UCNW by Sir Charles Evans, the Principal. Shirl refused, as Wigley knew that she would, because the havoc presiding at UCNW was a result of the Gang, See the source imageof which Sir Charles was a member,  but not one who was liked by the other members.

Lord Wigley explained in the Daily Post that ‘In the first year the Act paid compensation to some four thousand applicants – former slate quarrymen and their widows and workers in other dust ridden industries such as cotton and foundry workers. Sadly some cases failed – for lack of medical evidence… the Act remains in force, paying out significant sums. Tonight’s lecture will recall ‘behind the scenes battle’ to secure the act. The slate communities social history is central to Gwynedd’s World Heritage Bid.’

Boris Johnson has now lent his support to Gwynedd’s World Heritage Bid, so Lord W is in good company!See the source image

Boris: the slate landscape is truly impressive and Gwynedd deserves so much better than it has had but sadly I know what will happen if the World Heritage Bid is successful. Those we know and love who have demonstrated quite clearly for decades now that they are incapable of organising the proverbial piss-up in a brewery will colonise the project and completely screw it up. It is what they have done with everything that has arrived in Gwynedd, no matter how grand or Flagship it is. When Merfyn was VC of Bangor University the Great Hope was Pontio, the huge multimillion arts centre; Pontio finally arrived after much scrapping and infighting and it is not what it should be. Nepotism and fuckwittery won the day because it always does in Gwynedd and that is what will happen with a World Heritage Unesco site. There are plenty of rational, capable people in Gwynedd but they do not get a chance; the region is totally dominated by the Gang who cannot do anything but cheat, lie, bully and embezzle, they won’t sod off and no-one will kick them out…

So I’ll stand back and watch the show as more millions are pissed up against the wall in the name of the World Heritage Centre.

Dafydd Wigley’s Daily Post column just a few weeks ago was little more than a diatribe about how people had been confronting him re matters in Bethesda and how this was his fault he did not know because Bethesda was never in his constituency. Lord Wigley penned that column immediately after I blogged details about some of the criminality and lawlessness that prevailed in Rachub and Bethesda in the 1990s when I lived there. It is indeed true that Bethesda was never in Lord Wigley’s constituency, but as I have discussed on the blog, people in the Bethesda area tended to look to Lord Wigley and Plaid as the Voice Of The People, because it was considered ridiculous that Bethesda was part of Wyn Roberts’s constituency of er Llandudno. It was a standing joke that our interests were lumped in with those of the retired bungalow dwelling petit bourgeoisie from Manchester.

People from Bethesda contacted Lord Wigley because they’d never have wasted their time with Wyn Roberts; the Bethesda officials/Councillors tended to be Plaid, including Dafydd Orwig the most high profile Cllr, the Ogwen Valley Labour Party existed but it was dying on its feet and only about six people attended meetings (see previous posts)… Furthermore, one Ioan Bowen Rees, Plaid-supporting Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council and adviser to Dafydd Wigley, lived in Llanllechid on the outskirts of Bethesda. Ioan lived in a grand Plas down a lane hidden from us plebs by beech trees, but he was most definitely there.

Furthermore, the comments of mine to which Lord Wigley was reacting in his column were written in the context of criminality facilitated by bent Councillors, Top Docs, Angels, police officers, social workers, magistrates and judges. That was my point: I will not blame the Riff Raff for what was happening because I knew that the network of corrupt local professional people were behind it… I do know that my former neighbours shouldn’t have succumbed when bribed or threatened, but if bent Judge Huw Daniel in his Plas in another set of trees just a bit further down the road than Ioan was in the thick of the criminality – Huw’s dad being Prof J.E. Daniel, Theologian, Schools Inspector and early member of Plaid, both JE and Huw being mates with Gwynne and Dafydd – then the mess on the ground was not entirely the fault of the lawless ones who lived on low incomes in the quarry terraces…

Lord Wigley’s battle to obtain compensation for quarrymen with lung disorders was aimed at the elderly in the Bethesda area, there wasn’t a Penrhyn Quarry in Llandudno, that was why Bethesda people knew Dafydd Wigley!

Dafydd Wigley stated in the Daily post that ‘the suffering of the quarrymen should be remembered. For it is on their backs that the slate industry was built’. Should anyone wish to read what is acknowledged to be the best account of the Gwynedd quarrymen, their industrial action, development of their union and the way in which they were literally enslaved by the Anglicised gentry, most famously Lord Penrhyn aka George Sholto Gordon Douglas-Pennant, 2nd Baron Penrhyn (30 September 1836-10 March 1907), they need to acquire a copy of the 1982 volume ‘The North Wales Quarrymen 1874-1922’ by R. Merfyn Jones.

The quarrymen were enslaved to such a degree that Lord Penrhyn told them who to vote for and there was trouble if they didn’t follow his advice. In 1866 George Douglas-Pennant was elected Conservative Member of Parliament for Caernarvonshire and held the seat until 1868. Following this defeat his father sacked 80 quarrymen for failing to vote for him. George was again elected in 1874, but was defeated in 1880 by the Liberal Watkin Williams, QC, a Top Doc as well as a judge from a high profile Denbighshire family, who sat in the Commons, 1868-80, . Watkin Williams was the eldest son of Peter Williams, Rector of Llansannan, Denbighshire – the Mars-Jones family are from Llansannan –  and his wife Lydia Sophia Price, daughter of the Rev. James Price of Plas-yn-Lysfaen, Denbighshire. Henry Wynn-Williams was Watkin’s younger brother. After leaving Ruthin Grammar School Watkin studied medicine under John Eric Erichsen at UCH, where he also worked for a time as house-surgeon. Watkin Williams became the lifelong friend of Sir Henry Thompson and Sir John Russell Reynolds a well-known neurologist which meant that he used the services of places like the North Wales Hospital… Watkin Williams abandoned medicine for law and became a member of Middle Temple.

Between 1868 and 1880, Williams served as the Liberal MP for the Denbigh Boroughs. Although himself a churchman, on 24 May 1870 Williams moved a resolution in the Commons in favour of the disestablishment of the Anglican Church in Wales. The motion was opposed by William Gladstone and was lost by 209 against 45 votes. In 1880 Williams was elected for Caernarvonshire.

In November 1880, on the promotion of Sir Robert Lush to a lord-justiceship, Watkin Williams, who was Lush’s son-in-law, was appointed to the vacant puisne judgeship, even though Williams had recently made a public declaration that he would never accept such an office. Williams played a key role in some famous cases, including in the upholding of the conviction of Most in connection with the murder of Alexander II of Russia.

Williams died suddenly of heart disease at the age of 55 at Nottingham, ‘suddenly of heart disease’ euphemistically describing his demise in one of the town’s brothels on Forman Street. A contemporary Nottingham memorial card reported that he ‘departed this life suddenly at Mrs. Salmands’ and noted that ‘in eight feet deep of solid earth Sir Watkin Williams lies. He lost his breath, which caused his death, ‘twixt Nellie Blankey’s thighs’. 

Denbighshire traditions continued ie. politicians, judges, Top Docs who were friends with others in those professions enjoying themselves between other people’s thighs, safe in the knowledge that there was the North Wales Hospital available for anyone who refused to keep quiet.

Families like the Pennants and Williams’s persisted in north Wales, holding political office, calling the shots, intermarrying with each other as well as with families with even more power (Alec Douglas-Home’s son and heir David married Jane Williams-Wynn in 1972, the Gang’s cup will have runneth over) and I’ve been impressed with how they all were closely connected to the North Wales Hospital. There were a great many influential people including those who were rational in other spheres yet really did not want that place under scrutiny yet alone closed.

For a detailed account of those who have held and stood for Lord Wigley’s former constituency in its various manifestations, see ‘Slaves, Perfect Slaves’. The title of the post was taken from an article written by the ‘Herald Cymraeg’ columnist on Bethesda affairs, as discussed in Merfyn Jones’s 1982 book ‘The North Wales Quarrymen, 1874-1922’:

Does Wales know I wonder, that the workers of Chwarel y Cae are slaves, perfect slaves? Ever since the election of 1868 they slip further every year into the hold of servility, until most of them have by now lost the last grain of independence…they will have to be squeezed almost to death before they will shout.’

This comment was made in the context of Tory George Sholto Douglas-Pennant comfortably regaining his Parliamentary seat in 1874. In a region dominated by the Liberal Party:

In Bangor and Bethesda, however, areas under direct Penrhyn influence, Pennant had a majority. In Bethesda the number of Liberal votes was particularly small, 47 out of 359… Those brave enough to be public Liberals in Penrhyn’s domain were soon made to pay the price…Penrhyn sacked and intimidated many prominent Liberals. In 1870 he purged his quarries of agitators, dismissing “over 80 quarrymen, most of them among the best men in the quarry in character and work…without any reason being given”.

Condemned by the Welsh press, this action was accepted by the Penrhyn quarrymen, who held an apparently well-attended meeting in June 1870 to “protest against the slur cast upon the respected stewards and generous and kind proprietor”. They resented especially the words of a local radical columnist who had castigated them as “white slaves”. On the contrary, the men protested, the sackings had been perfectly justified by the downward turn in the slate trade and even one of the dismissed men maintained that this was so and that he was no radical and had helped with the plans for a union (in 1865) against his own will. Such was Penrhyn’s power, the fear of victimisation and a genuine sense of obligation toward their master demanded a vote, not necessarily for Toryism, but for the Pennant family…Even prominent nonconformist figures…and a host of deacons sat on Penrhyn’s platform and spoke on his behalf…’

The dominance over the economy in north Wales of families such as the Pennants has been substantially eroded, but a craven fear of and loyalty to the Gang remains, manifested in particular by the obligation to maintain that there is no serious problem with the NHS, Social Services or Local Authorities in north Wales. People are allowed to state that the schools are not what they should be, but no-one is permitted to say a critical word about the NHS other than that all would be well if only it were given more dosh. The NHS in north Wales is dreadful, very dangerous and has been for many years; the problem stems from the criminality that can be traced back to Denbigh acting as repository for influential abusive people. So many lies are told about the NHS, in north Wales and elsewhere, that it is very difficult for the uninitiated to work out how big the problem is and what is the cause. Every politician knows but no-one will admit it. Local people are dying needlessly because of this.

As with so many constituencies in north Wales, if a candidate for Caernarfonshire was not a lapdog to the Gang, they stood no chance of being elected. Although the fortunes of the old families have declined somewhat and the power dynamics are not perhaps as simple as they used to be, it is still a case of My How Things Haven’t Changed. The Gang have long been in partnership with the National Trust – Lucille Hughes now works with the NT, so the partnership has become overt, as opposed to the summer Manpower Services Commission scheme run by Wing Commander Ian Panton for ‘disadvantaged local people’ ie. victims of the Gang who were quietly pumped for info and then disappeared into the underclass as discussed in previous posts – which is interesting because the ancestral seats of the families who were using the services of Gwynne and Dafydd to dispose of awkward customers are often now in the possession of the NT, on terms that are advantageous to those families.

Antoinette Sandbach who until the last General Election was Tory MP for Eddisbury is the barrister daughter of a Gang family from north Wales who are related to the 2nd Baron Penrhyn. Antoinette’s dad Ian Lawrie Mackeson-Sandbach was a leading Mason, Provincial Grand Master of North Wales 1990-2004. Just look at what was happening during those years; Ian I think succeeded Lord Kenyon in that role. Hefin Davies of Gwynedd Community Health Trust was a leading Mason in north Wales. Ian’s mum Geraldine Sandbach – she’s the descendant of Lord Penrhyn -was President of the Royal College of Midwives Denbigh branch, held office in the Anglican Church etc. See previous posts for a fuller account of the Sandbach family’s previous and Gang-related activities.

Here’s a bit more info about Ian Mackeson-Sandbach that I don’t think I included in previous posts:  Lt Welsh Guards Emergency Reserve 1952-57; MD of France Fenwick Ltd, 1969-75; Director of Demerara Co Ltd 1969-76, Chief Exec of Ernest Notcutt Group Ltd, 1976-82; Chairman of Crown Estate Paving, 1983-2004; Liveryman of Worshipful Company of Grocers.

Ian Mackeson-Sandbach died on 26 Sept 2012. It was in the autumn of 2012 that someone e mailed me to say that Tony Francis had ‘committed suicide’ but they weren’t sure when and no-one was saying anything at all officially about the matter.

 

Merfyn made a lot of people very cross when he wrote ‘The North Wales Quarrymen 1874-1922’, not because his book didn’t have any pictures in it or was historically inaccurate, but because Merfyn argued that the quarrymen were not only oppressed by Lord Penrhyn and the Anglicised gentry who owned the quarries, but also by the Welsh middle classes who wielded a political and cultural domination over the region via in those days the Liberal Party and Nonconformist religion. Then Merfyn traumatised everyone even more by theorising that Plaid grew out of that dominant Welsh middle class and that was Plaid’s electoral and power base.

Did Dafydd Wigley ever take on the cause of kids in care and psych patients illegally imprisoned/assaulted/fitted up in Court/slandered and libelled? Or did Dafydd Wigley Befriend Top Doctors, Defend the NHS, Sit On The Warnock Committee with Dame Josephine Barnes a Top Doc who was married to Ted Heath’s close friend and personal physician See the source image– Dame Josephile and her husband Sir Brian Warren were both facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring – and repeatedly maintain that he Knew Nuzzing about the organised abuse of vulnerable people in north Wales, although I was not the only person who contacted him about it?

 

Merfyn bagged a CBE a few years ago and when I witnessed someone ask him if he was going to go to the Palace and he tactfully didn’t say yes or no, I had a good snigger. Lord Wigley bagged rather more than a CBE and his daughter-in-law sort of worked for the Palace. As I suppose did/does Lord Wigley.See the source image

See the source image

Anyone for a vicious murderous paedophile ring run by a Royal Lobotomist, the hub of which was Gwynedd, although it was Clwyd that received the worst publicity? The kids who were supplied to Dolphin Square were from the Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor. See the source imageAs Lord Wigley kno, Ty’r Felin wasn’t in his constituency, it was in Lord Wyn Robert’s constituency. However, Gwynedd County Council and Gwynedd Health Authority were the machinery of the ring and nearly all of the key players from those bodies were based in Caernarfon, just around the corner from Lord Wigley’s office. Including the Arfon CMHT until the late 1980s. Some of the most guilty were Lord Wigley’s neighbours…

Lord Wyn Roberts was bestest friends with the Gang and the hub of his constituency was Llandudno, the town in which Gwynne originated. If Lord Wigley was, as he has admitted, passing letters about the abuse of kids in Ty’r Felin that he was receiving onto Thatch’s Welsh Office Minister Wyn Roberts, when no action was taken why did Lord Wigley not follow it up? It wasn’t a matter of a request for an extra street lamp, it was a matter of an international trafficking ring targeting kids as young as eleven years old, some of who were later found dead or simply disappeared…

So when is someone going to recover the bodies?See the source image

 

An Ealing Comedy

A cryptic reader asked me recently to ‘look up Tony Sadler’. I only had time to do this last night, but I remembered who Tony Sadler was. He was one of the Obs and Gynae Consultants (or he might have been a Senior Reg) in Bodger’s team when I worked at St George’s. I always considered Tony Sadler to be one of the less offensive colleagues of Bodger’s; he wasn’t crude and offensive and was always quite friendly. Neither was Tony Sadler someone who was the subject of florid gossip; however he did know what was going on in Bodger’s Dept and he’ll have known about the other outrages at St George’s and Springfield as well. I remember Tony Sadler telling colleagues and I that he’d purchased a new Porsche one lunchtime and I remember that he lived at Ealing. I didn’t know much about him apart from that because he wasn’t one of the illustrious ones…
First I checked the Medical Register to see if Tony Sadler was one of the many who worked with Bodger when I was at St George’s who have been struck off or voluntarily relinquished their licence to practice. Anthony Peter Sadler is still on the Medical Register with a licence to practice; he Qualified at London University in 1980 and he is now on the GP register, although he has the full credentials re Obs and Gynae.
The first thing that I found when I googled Tony Sadler was the account of his unsuccessful appeal against a GMC ruling against him. So of all the crazed Top Docs at St George’s, after Malcolm Pearce hit the world’s media in 1994/95 – Bodger was just as guilty as Malcolm over the research fraud scandal, but it was Malcolm who was struck off, AFTER Bodger gave evidence against him, at no time was the fickle finger of suspicion even pointed at Bodger although after reading the details of the case it was impossible that Bodger really Knew Nuzzing, as discussed in ‘Now Then…’ – it was Tony Sadler whom the GMC went after and actually got. The GMC went after Rashmi Varma as well, the Fertility Consultant at St George’s, after patients complained that Varma was forcing NHS patients to donate eggs to private patients. Varma was cleared and declared the case to be based on Racism and Sexism. I was told by someone at St George’s that Varma was as guilty as they come… Varma returned to India after the case; I suspect that she got away with it because of the dirt that she had on Bodger and so many other people…
As for those who believed Varma’s declarations of Inequitable Treatment on the part of the GMC, Varma was dreadful to midwives and junior docs and always called her registrar Patel, never Dr Patel or Rashmi (he had the same name as her), because Mrs Varma was a Brahmin and she was not going to waste respect on a Patel. She was also a very rich woman and wanted to become a lot richer.
So the GMC went after and clobbered one of the more normal Top Docs at St George’s…
The account of Tony’s appeal appears on the website of Old Square Chambers, who represented the Privy Council in the case. If A Top Doc appeals against a GMC ruling, the appeal is made to the Privy Council, because it is the Privy Council that has domain over the GMC. See the source imageSo Lord Hendy QC and Bella Webb of Old Square Chambers were NOT representing Tony Sadler.
Anthony Sadler v. General Medical Council
(2003) 1 WLR 2259,(2004) HRLR 8,(2004) Lloyd’s Rep Med 44., Privy Council – Lord Hendy QC, Bella Webb
The General Medical Council’s Committee on Professional Performance had jurisdiction to determine the referral of a complaint about the performance of appellant consultant surgeon. There was nothing irregular or unfair in its approach and the intermediate and final conclusions it reached were not unsafe.

Appeal by a doctor (‘S’) from the decision of the Committee on Professional Performance (‘CPP’) of the General Medical Council (‘GMC’) that his registration as a medical practitioner should be made conditional for three years. S was a consultant surgeon in obstetrics and gynaecology with a National Health Service trust. In December 1997 he was suspended as a result of five incidents during his work as a surgeon between July and December of that year. The NHS trust subsequently notified the GMC and in September 1998 the assessment process under the professional performance regime began. The process was completed before the Privy Council’s decision in Krippendorf v General Medical Council (2001) 1 WLR1054 was made, concerning the operation of the General Medical Council (Professional Performance) Rules 1997 and therefore without the benefit of guidance given in that case. Accordingly the assessment panel did not concentrate on the particular incidents giving rise to the assessment. The assessment panel decided S’s performance was unacceptable and recommended remedial action to improve S’s performance, in the form of retraining and temporary supervision. In July 1999 the case co-ordinator produced a statement of requirements with which S agreed to comply. Through no fault of S, his training placement did not commence until July 2000. S made a surgical error during his training as a result of which the placement was terminated after three days. Sunsuccessfully attempted to obtain a new training placement. On 2 November 2000 the case co-ordinator decided to refer S’s case to the CPP under r.25(1)(b)(i) of the Rules because S was no longer being re-trained in accordance with the statement of requirements. The CPP found that S’s standard of professional performance was seriously deficient in relation to good operative care. In doing so it had examined in detail the five incidents that originally gave rise to the assessment process, as well as the incident leading to the termination of S’s training placement. That approach resulted from a legal assessor’s advice that there were errors in the assessment panel’s approach and the CPP should not rely on the contents of conclusions of the assessment panel’s report or anything adverse to S in third party interviews. Ultimately, the CPP determined to make S’sregistration conditional for a period of three years. S’s grounds of appeal related to: (i) the CPP’s jurisdiction under the referral; (ii) the reasoning of the CPP including the finding of a pattern of seriously deficient performance; (iii) the standard of proof; and (iv) apparent bias arising from the fact that the CPP was composed solely of members of the GMC.HELD: (1) Under the statement of requirements S was obliged to take effective action to improve his professional performance by 24 August 2000. S’s non-compliance with the statement did not end as of that date because the statement had effect until 24 November 2000. Although S did all he could to achieve effective re-training, he had not done so and the case co-ordinator had no reasonable alternative but to refer the case to the CPP. That referral was authorised by r.25(1)(b)(i) of the Rules and the CPP had jurisdiction to hear S’s case. (2) The CPP did not err in its consideration of the four surgical incidents in relation to which it made adverse findings. It was entitled to take those incidents into account in reaching its final conclusions. (3) There was nothing irregular or unfair in the CPP’s approach or in its continuation of the hearing after the legal assessor’s advice. The CPP’s overall conclusions and its conclusions on the individual incidents were not unsafe although it could have adopted a different approach, for example, in relation to putting the specialist medical adviser’s views to other expert witnesses. (4) In general, when determining whether the standard of a practitioner’s performance had been seriously deficient the ordinary civil standard of proof should be applied by the CPP. In exceptional cases a heightened civil standard of proof might be appropriate.Furthermore, a criminal standard might be appropriate where the conduct in question would also found serious criminal charges (McAllister v General Medical Council (1993) AC 388). (5) The CPP, as a tribunal for self-regulation of professionals, satisfied the requirements of independence, impartiality and fairness under Art.6 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Albert and Le Compte v Belgium (1983) 5 EHRR 533, Bryan v United Kingdom (1995) 21 EHHR 342 considered.

Appeal dismissed.

Just look at those dates: someone went after Tony Sadler in a big way in Dec 1997, just after Ronnie Waterhouse had finished taking evidence in public from the witnesses at the Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, causing headlines denouncing the former kids in care as being Liars, Addicts and Criminals. After 17 years in medicine, it was in July 1997 that someone noticed that Tony Sadler’s practice was not what it should be. The dates of Sadler’s difficulties in 1997 correlate nearly perfectly with those of the arrest and trial of F and I on the basis of the perjury of CPN Bridget Lloyd of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team.

Bridget Lloyd had worked as a psych Angel in Gwynedd for decades; Bridget was the Angel who, when I was unlawfully detained in Aug 1986, refused to let me go until I’d ‘seen’ Dafydd, then shut me in a room with only Dafydd, who proceeded to Talk Sex and when I challenged him told me that if I didn’t get out of north Wales now and never come back, he’d have me arrested…Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

My post ‘The Price Is Right’ details, with dates, the sequence of events that followed when I told F in detail in the summer of 1997 about the Aug 1986 Bridget Lloyd incident; F rang one of Bridget’s colleagues, swore at him and the next we knew both F and I were arrested for ‘threatening Bridget’, Bridget claiming to be so terrified re her safety and the safety of her ‘young children’ that she was issued with a personal alarm by the NHS. At our trial at Caernarfon Magistrates Court in Jan 1998, the prosecution stressed that the NHS had prepared a safe house for Bridget if I, in particular, was acquitted.

I have a document in my possession written by Bridget soon after our arrest in which she tells her senior colleagues that she is not at all frightened of me, that I only ever met her once and that I wouldn’t recognise her if I saw her.

Weeks before our trial, Tony Francis wrote a Court Report for use WHEN we were found guilty no less, recommending that F should be put on probation and I should be sent to a secure unit.

F and I were both acquitted, only to face yet more aggro from the mental health services, a refusal to apologise and an insistence that we still be treated as Dangerous Forensic Patients. The Case Manager who had been assigned to us was Senior Forensic Angel Jackie Ehlen, who had back in the late 1980s, been Bridget’s colleague on the two psych wards at Ysbyty Gwynedd, before the Hergest Unit was built. Ehlen, like Bridget, was one of the Angels who was of Sister rank in 1986/87.

My post ‘Inside Information About A Hergest Unit Death’ discusses the unexplained death of psych patient Dorothy Griffiths in 1987 or 1988 on the ward in which I was unlawfully detained when I encountered Bridget and Dafydd in Aug 1986. Jackie, Dr Sadie Francis and Dr Colin Flood all lied at Dorothy’s Inquest, the Coroner admitted that none of the evidence was consistent and ALL the evidence of those three witnesses was inconsistent with the post-mortem path lab results. The Coroner simply denounced this as ‘inexplicable’ and Dorothy’s death was written off as just another Nutter who had killed herself. I obtained additional info about Dorothy, the circumstances in which she was detained at Ysbyty Gwynedd, her death, the aftermath of her death and the dreadful conduct of Ysbyty Gwynedd staff. None of this info came out at the Inquest. I didn’t know for years that Jackie Ehlen et al knew that I had the additional info; the security services knew as well because they bugged the phone calls in which I was given the info…

Sadie Francis at the time was holding a contract as a Consultant Psych when she did not have the qualifications to hold that post. The GMC knew this and colluded; Image result for general medical council logo imagesSadie was only one of a number of NHS staff in north Wales who were known to have been appointed to jobs that their own professional organisations as well as regulatory bodies knew that they should not have been offered, yet alone given. Colin Flood is now working as a GP in Llandudno.

My post ‘The Price Is Right’ explains that on 13 Sept 1997 F wrote a full and frank letter to John Mullen, the CEO of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust, after our arrest and in that letter, F discussed Dafydd’s indecent behaviour towards patients, including me and the matter of Bridget facilitating Dafydd’s conduct. ‘The Price Is Right’ details the many times during 1994, 95, 96, 97 and 98 when F and I repeatedly wrote or told NHS staff, Social Services staff, the Mental Health Act Commission etc that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients. I also explained how in Jan 1991, Robin Jacobson, a Consultant Psych at Springfield Hospital, the mental health unit attached to St George’s, wrote to his colleague Consultant Forensic Psych Prof Nigel Eastman and admitted in writing that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and that Jacobson suspected that Tony Francis was as well. I discussed how Dr Tom Burns, a Springfield Consultant Psych, in 1990, also admitted to my face that he knew that this was happening. The letter written by Jacobson was made available to his entire team – including to Ruth White, who was a good friend of one of Bodger’s team whom I knew well – as well as to Nigel Eastman’s team, the GPs at the Trevelyan Road Practice in Tooting and to Wandsworth Social Services, who then rang and wrote to Tony Francis for ‘information’ about me. Tony told them all to contact Lucille Hughes for information about my ‘dangerousness’, which they did.

Of course they did, St George’s and Springfield were part of the same trafficking ring, they’d all known each other for ages, as had Wandsworth Social Services and Gwynedd and Clwyd Social Services. The Dean of St George’s, Sir William Asscher, had until 1988, been in a senior role at University Hospital, Cardiff and personally knew NHS staff and managers in Gwynedd and Clwyd, especially because Asscher had established the dialysis units in Ysbyty Gwynedd and Ysbyty Glan Clwyd.See the source image

Asscher founded a charidee, Kidney Wales. In 1990, EVERY Welsh MP, led by David Hunt, then Welsh Secretary, supported at a beano in support of Kidney Wales, on College Green outside Parliament; hroughout 1990 the Gang repeatedly took me to the High Court, including in Cardiff. See ‘The Paedophiles Friends Of Cardiff North’. The Welsh MPs of all parties knew each other and Bodger knew many of them, having grown up and been to school in Cardiff and having a father who was Secretary to the Lord Mayor of Cardiff. Bodger was from a Labour supporting family and previous posts explain how it was Bodger, the BMA and other Top Docs who colluded with discontented Tory MPs, in particular Geoffrey Howe, Heseltine and Douglas Hurd, to bring Thatch down at the end of 1990. I was the football…

‘The Price Is Right’ explains how after receiving F’s letter of 13 Sept 1997 about his call to Bridget’s colleagues, Mullen seemed to ignore it but on 22 Sept 1997 a fax marked URGENT was sent to Alun Davies, the Manager of the Psychiatric Services for Gwynedd Community Health Trust, re F’s letter with the covering note of ‘urgent comments please, JFM needs to reply before Wednesday’. JFM being Mullen. There is no copy of the content of Mullen’s fax to Davies, but it comprised a number of pages…

On 22 Sept 1997, Westminster Molester George Thomas died. Thomas had served as the Labour MP for Cardiff West, 1945-1983, until Thatch made him a Viscount. See the source imageRhodri Morgan held George Thomas’s seat, 11 June 1987-14 May 2001. See the source imageRhodri held the same  Welsh Assembly seat, May 1999-May 2011. See the source imageGeorge Thomas was the hot potato of the Westminster Paedophile Ring; he plundered the NHS budget for the whole of Wales when he was Welsh Secretary to build the University Hospital Cardiff See the source imagebecause he and the Top Docs had a symbiotic relationship, being involved in the same criminality. See the source imageThe big Labour vote was in south Wales and they loved George Thomas who did so much for the NHS and medical/children’s charidees! See ‘The Great Stink’.

When Julie was a student at King’s College, London, en route to being a Barry social worker and Deputy Director of Barnardo’s, Julie went home to Cardiff in her very first term to campaign for Sunny Jim so Committed was she. Julie and Rhodri were two of a foursome of Bright Young Things in the south Wales Labour Party at the time, all destined For The Top.See the source image

Dr Elinor Kapp, a child psychiatrist in south Wales, was a founding Trustee of the George Thomas Trust, now known as City Hospice, GT’s name being a toxic brand these days. Kapp was married to Prof Kenneth Rawnsley, See the source imagePresident of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, 1981-84 and Chair of Psychological Medicine at Cardiff, 1964-85. Rawnsley was appointed as the first Dean of the Royal College of Psychiatrists upon its establishment in 1972. The priority of Giant Of Psychiatry Sir Martin Roth, an old mate of Gwynne and Dafydd’s, at the time was to acquire a suitably grandiose building in Belgravia to serve as the HQ of the Royal College. The Royal College had no money and Roth was warned that he would bankrupt the Royal College if he acquired the building. Roth did so nevertheless, with the help of a loan from Marks & Spencer no less, on favourable terms.

I haven’t yet discovered exactly why M&S wanted to bankroll a body of people who were known within medicine and in some wider circles to be facilitating serious crime and organised abuse, but it seems to have been something to do with the many Top Docs who were involved in the cartel who had links to M&S, including John Marks, who later became President/Chair of the BMA and did battle with Ken Clarke, and John’s brother Vincent, Top Doc and Prof at the University of Surrey. Thatch’s shameless doubling up as an advert for M&S seems to have also been something to do with Gwynne and Dafydd, most likely the Sir Peter Morrison link and others in M&S circles who were bankrolling the Gang. Despite those M&S ads, Thatch favoured Aquascutum, not the nylon slacks on sale in M&S at the time. As predicted, even with the help of Lord Sieff, Roth’s acquisition of the grandiose building in Belgravia left the Royal College in serious financial difficulties and they had to eventually move out and find a cheaper place in which to crash.

See previous posts for some of the adventures of People Trafficker Martin Roth, who certainly got about; Martin was over in Argentina helping out General Galtieri before Thatch needed to cut diplomatic links and win that war to get herself re-elected.Image result for gotcha belgrano images

Sir Martin Roth: Image result for sir martin roth images Note the Calm Hands. Dafydd used to do the Calm Hands, he knew sod all about medicine, but Dafydd learnt the Calm Hands at the Maudsley a la Martin Roth.

Kenneth Rawnsley had Trained Tony Francis when Francis was a Cardiff med student at George Thomas Central and then a junior doc. In south Wales as a junior doc Tony Francis worked with Hamid Ghodse, who became the Drug Addiction Consultant and Prof at St George’s/Springfield and was Mr Big in a huge Class A drugs distribution network. Hamid’s wife Barbara was a senior manager of St George’s NHS Trust. Rawnsley’s job in Cardiff, was among other things, to uphold standards of care and training in psychiatry right across Wales. As a student, Tony Francis knew the Windbag, who at the time was Students’ Union President in Cardiff.  Grotesque Chaos Followed:See the source imageImage result for gotcha belgrano imagesSee the source imageSee the source imageSee the source image

Year after year, Rawnsley reassured everyone that Gwynne and Dafydd were doing a great job and were even good enough to Train Others. Rawnsley knew William Asscher. Before relocating to Cardiff in 1964, Rawnsley had worked in Manchester – Rawnsley had Qualified at Manchester post-WW II – with a team who were protecting Gwynne and Dafydd.

See eg. ‘The Newcastle-Upon-Tyne Connection’, A Galaxy Of Talent’ and ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ for details of the very close relationships between this incestuous circle of serious criminals who ruled psychiatry in Britain for decades.

I am delighted to inform readers that after I blogged about Elinor Kapp – who described herself as ‘a grandmother with a kind heart’ on the City Hospice website – Elinor was one of the lucky winners in the WCVA (Wales Council for Voluntary Action) Volunteer Of The Years Awards, presented  in June 2018. 

Elinor’s in the middle of the pic, flanked by WCVA Vice-President Tom Jones and Chief Exec Ruth Marks (The WCVA and Ruth have starred in previous posts.)

Dr Elinor Knapp

WCVA tells us that: ‘A retired psychiatric consultant’s dedication to her role as trustee at a Cardiff hospice has helped ensure it consistently provides a world-class standard of specialist home-based palliative care’. 81-year-old Dr Elinor Kapp became a trustee of George Thomas Hospice Care See the source imageon its foundation in 1984, contributing her clinical knowledge as a consultant in child and adolescent psychiatry and her experience in achieving high standards of care in a clinical setting.  See the source image

She continued in the role beyond her retirement after 50 years service to the NHS, seeing the charity adopt its new identity as City Hospice in 2017.  Image result for city hospice imagesIn the past year, a record total of 750 new patients with incurable illnesses were referred to the hospice. The Clinical Governance Committee chaired by Dr Kapp since 1984 is charged with overseeing the quality and standard of care provided by City Hospice’s clinical team, and ensuring it provides a world-class standard of palliative care, working collaboratively with colleagues in primary and secondary care.  

‘She has offered the board sound advice on all clinical matters, and her judgement and wise counsel has proved particularly valuable on the rare occasions when the continuity of the service might have been under threat, or in arguing for investment in the clinical service on grounds of increasing demand or enhancing quality, or both,’ said Chief Executive Mike Walsh. ‘She balances diplomacy with humour and a sound understanding of medicine, people and the complexities of providing palliative and end of life care to patients in their own homes and living with their families. Nothing is ever too much trouble and her commitment to her role in time, energy and enthusiasm has been and continues to be exemplary.’

There were many more links as well between the Welsh National School of Medicine/Cardiff University and Bodger’s mates in other medical schools apart from St George’s. There was traffic in Top Docs between Cardiff and Hammersmith Hospital, the Westminster, the Middlesex, Guys and Tommy’s and the London Hospital in particular. The nightmare became worse as Top Docs from George Thomas Central at Cardiff were appointed to senior roles in other parts of the UK eg. Nottingham and Cambridge, as well as overseas eg. in the US, Canada, Oz and New Zealand as well as in various developing nations such as those in African. See eg. ‘Successful Surgery On George VI!’ and ‘International Finance, With Thanks To Gwynne’.

Tony Sadler’s difficulties continued throughout the Waterhouse Inquiry and continued after the publication of the Waterhouse Inquiry in Feb 2000.

When Asscher was Called To St George’s from Cardiff in 1988 to save the ship in the wake of Ollie Brooke’s conviction, imprisonment and subsequent early release by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane on appeal in May 1987, Asscher kept his home in the Vale of Glamorgan, returning there at weekends. Asscher retired in 1996/97 and moved back to live in the Vale of Glamorgan full-time until he died on 20 July 2014. Later in life in the Vale of Glamorgan, Asscher Found Happiness With A New Lady In His Life, ‘an old family friend’, Image result for hollywood gossip viz imageswho I think was a relative of Robin Jacobson’s secretary in 1990/91, Angela Pumfrey, who read and wrote so many interesting things about me.

Tony Sadler didn’t ever carry on like Richard Penketh… Whatever Tony Sadler did or didn’t do, his referral to the GMC will have been because someone somewhere for some reason wanted to shaft him. Image result for general medical council logo imagesI have no idea why, I can’t see any clues in the account of the case provided on the Old Square Chambers website, but it will have been nothing to do with Tony Sadler’s clinical practice.

In 1999, my close friend who was hounded out of her media career in the early 1990s by Sir Paul Fox and Michael Grade, lost her baby girl soon after birth at the Musgrove Park Hospital Taunton. A family friend who was a Top Doc told my friend that it was inexcusable negligence but not to waste her time trying to sue because he knew that the staff had already been told to lie about the circumstances of her baby’s death. My friend found the bereavement counsellor offered by Musgrove Park highly unsuitable and did not visit her a second time. My friend’s mum was a therapist and my friend subsequently trained as a counsellor; she still maintains that Barbara from Musgrove Park should not have been let loose on bereaved parents. The Top Doc who managed the birth – and death – of my friend’s baby was Robert Fox.

Musgrove Park takes many medical students and Top Docs from the London medical schools. My posts ‘Oliver’s Army!’ and ‘The Logic Of Medicine’ discussed how Sir John Rogers Ellis and Clifford Wilson, two Top Docs at the London Hospital who were partners in crime with Gwynne and Dafydd, during the late 1960s/early 70s were given responsibility for the postgrad training of junior docs across all the London medical schools, arranging placements and junior doc jobs for them across the whole of the south of England. Their Man In Taunton was Dr Brian Wykeham Webb. Ellis and Rogers et al held socials and jollies for the med students and junior docs and built up their network of loyal colleagues.

Sir William Asscher Trained at the London Hospital and worked there as a junior doc before relocating to Cardiff in the mid-1960s. Asscher knew Ellis and Wilson well.

Imagine my surprise when I finally received my medical records in 2005 and Jackie Ehlen had written about my friend’s baby’s death in them. See ‘The Turn Of The Screw’ for an account of the many unpleasant things that happened to my friend and her husband from their early 20s onwards, after they stood by me in the face of the Gang.

I think the Robert Fox who succeeded in killing my friend’s baby in 1999 is the Robert Fox who Qualified at Leeds in 1980 and who no longer has a licence to practice for ‘administrative reasons’.  Savile reigned supreme over Leeds NHS in 1980 Image result for jimmy savile imagesand previous posts and comments have mapped the network of Obs and Gynae Top Docs in particular between Leeds and north Wales. In the 1990s, Simon Leeson Image result for simon leeson imagesrelocated from Leeds to Ysbyty Gwynedd; Leeson’s colleagues were up to no good in their clinics. Jimmy Shroff was a junior doc who arrived in Bodger’s team at St George’s when I was working there; Jimmy was a Bart’s graduate who had worked as a GP trainee with D.G. E. Wood in Bangor. Jimmy Shroff ended up as an Obs and Gynae Consultant in Leeds. He died still in early middle age in 2004 from pancreatic cancer. Shroff’s widow works for the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. Malcolm Pearce, Bodger’s mate at St George’s Trained, and/or worked at Leeds before moving to London. Malcolm remained good mates with his old crowd in Leeds and went back there frequently to visit them.

John Hendy QC was the lawyer who defended Brave Wendy in 1985-86 when Brave Wendy and her colleagues staged a civil war to detract from their huge trafficking ring based at the London Hospital that was run in collaboration with Dafydd and Gwynne. See the source imageBodger was the Independent Expert Witness who defended Brave Wendy’s clinical practice. The entire charade was constructed as a gender-based battle, with Brave Wendy being a Socialist Feminist Woman who favoured natural birth in the face of Possibly Conservative Men who favoured hi-tech deliveries. The braver media commentators explained that it was in reality a battle between Brave Wendy and her Head of Dept who simply hated each other.

No-one had the guts to publish the truth: they were ALL in on the same criminal cartel and had been for years. I was refusing to shut up about Gwynne in north Wales, Ollie Brooke was under police investigation at St George’s, Madam Cyn’s brothel at Ambleside Avenue in Streatham, which was the networking hub for the Westminster Paedophile Ring and frequented by Top Docs from St George’s, was under investigation yet again and some of Brave Wendy’s med students and junior docs were so appalled at what she was doing – including the women who counted themselves as feminists – that it would only be a matter of time before one of them blew the whistle. So the myth of Brave Wendy, the Social Feminist who practiced Wimmin-Centred births was launched.

Brave Wendy held high office in the Women’s Medical Federation (see ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’), subsequently fronted the Keep Our NHS Public and other campaigns and sat on the GMC for donkeys years, the Rebel that she is. See eg. ‘This Is A Nightmare For All Of Us’ for further details of Brave Wendy’s Battle Against The Male Medical Establishment.

Tony Jewell, the East End Socialist GP who Supported Brave Wendy in 1985-86, rocked up as Wales’s Chief Medical Officer, April 2006-Aug 2012, as the slaughter in the north Wales NHS reached a new level and needed even more lies told to explain it away.Image result for general medical council logo images See the source imageTony also arrived once I had begun working and publishing on healthcare policy. See previous posts…

Tony Jewell at a meeting of the Socialist Health Association:

Brian Gibbons was the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister on who’s watch Tony Jewell was appointed as CMO; Gibbons was the first man to give Richard Penketh an Award For Excellence. Gwynne and Dafydd’s mates managed to kill Merfyn’s wife while Tony was Wales’s CMO; then Tony turned up to Bangor University to give a Speech and was rude enough to strut out of the venue as soon as he’d finished, not even a ‘thanks for listening’, no questions, Tony just walked through the audience and buggered off. Merfyn introduced the event and I was in the audience, so perhaps Tony felt that he might be asked a few awkward questions if he did hang about. Previous posts discussed Tony’s glorious career and his disaster as Wales’s CMO.

Amidst all the Bravery and Socialism and Caring, we need to remember that the biggest Mr Moneybags behind the trafficking ring was of course Tiny Rowland, See the source imagethe friend and business partner of Edward du Cann, Tory MP for Taunton, 1956-87. du Cann remained a malevolent presence after leaving the Commons, indeed until he died on 31 Aug 2017. Tiny died on 25 July 1998. See previous posts, including ‘The Price Is Right’ for info on Tiny’s son Toby and Toby’s wife Plum Sykes who is a Top Model.

It Was A Sad Day For This Country When the Top Docs Killed The Man Who Bankrolled Their Cartel.See the source image

On 15 Oct 2019 John Hendy’s became Lord Hendy. John Hendy’s mother was the youngest daughter of the 6th Baron Wynford and his father was “a communist electrician and trade unionist”. John describes his father as “a great fighter for human dignity as a trade unionist” and as being the greatest influence on his life. Lord Hendy’s brother is Sir Peter Hendy CBE, Commissioner of Transport for London from 2001 until 2016 and now Chair of Network Rail. Which raises questions about Lord John Hendy undertaking so much work re transport disasters closely connected to responsibilities held by Sir Peter or Sir Peter’s colleagues. See previous posts…

 

If Lord David Hunt, now Head Honcho of the law firm Beachcroft International, which handles work for the MDU, can explain any of this – particularly Tony Sadler’s difficulties while Bodger rode on – I’d be keen to hear what Hunt has to say.

What is Tony Sadler doing now? He’s working as a GP in the Brighton and Hove area.

Perhaps Tony Sadler would like to select the title of the Ealing Comedy that he feels is most apt for his career since Miranda was elected as PM:

Now Then. A man who had so many questions to answer yet I don’t think anyone even thought to ask him even the obvious ones: Tory MP William Shelton, in who’s constituency Madam Cyn’s brothel was located and where a lot of St George’s and Springfield staff/students lived as well as many other accomplices to the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Image result for medical defence union slogan imagesSir William also had a load of bent coppers policing his constituency, as least one of whom had, before 1990, served with the North Wales Police and was mates with the Gang and their corrupt Tory Magistrate on the ground in Bethesda, Geoff Davies, the landlord of the Douglas Arms Hotel. Sir Willian has starred on the blog before (see ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’) but I can see a lot more in Sir William’s biography now, far more than just his flat in Dolphin Square…

(1929-10-30)30 October 1929
Plymouth, Devon, England

Died 2 January 2003(2003-01-02) (aged 73)
Political party Conservative

Sir William Jeremy Masefield Shelton (30 October 1929-2 January 2003) was Tory MP for Clapham, 1970-February 1974, then for Streatham from February 1974 until he lost the seat to Labour Party candidate Keith Hill in 1992. Shelton was born in Plymouth, the son of Lt Col Richard Shelton of Guernsey and attended Radley College in Radley, Berkshire. Shelton was evacuated in 1940, studying at Tabor Academy in Marion, Massachusetts, on an English-Speaking Union scholarship, and then Worcester College, Oxford, where he read PPE.

Lord Asa Briggs, one of the most senior officers in MI5 from the late 1970s and possibly the Director of MI5 when the world was told that it was Asa’s mate Howard Smith, appointed by Sunny Jim in 1978 to serve until 198, was VC of Sussex University, 1967-76 and the Gang’s Man In Brighton, the location of many of the brothels to which the Gang were trafficking kids in care from north Wales. Asa grew up and went to school in the Bradford area, as did Denis Healey and was a big mate of Harold Wilson’s. Asa forever harboured a grudge towards Merfyn after Merfyn and two of his mates, when undergrads at Sussex University, threw red paint over Asa’s Posh Visitor, Robert Beers, a US diplomat, as an anti-Vietnam protest in 1968. See ‘the Wizard War’.

I had that Philip Pulman in the back of the cab once. And as any fule kno the Guv’nor of the BBC doesn’t live in Wales, he lives in Bridgy.Image result for alan yentob images

Soon after Merfyn became VC of Bangor University in 2004, Asa’s daughter appeared on a Radio 4 programme discussing her dad’s Years Of Glory; Asa minor made a point of telling the Radio 4 interviewer that the biggest trauma of her dad’s career at Sussex was when those three dreadful students threw paint over a visiting US diplomat and poor old Asa had still not recovered even after all these years.See the source image

Among his many other appointments, Asa was Fellow of Worcester College, Oxford (1945–55) again from 1969 and then in 1976 Asa returned to Oxford to become Provost of Worcester College, Oxford, retiring from the post in 1991.

In April 1992, days after John Major won the General Election, the Brighton Firebomb killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. See ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’.

Asa was excellent at toadying; as a young Fellow, Asa Briggs proofread Winston Churchill’s A History of the English-Speaking Peoples. As opposed to A History Of The Welsh-Speaking Peoples. I was intrigued to read in the Daily Post yesterday that there ‘is a shortage of 72 year old Welshmen’; the comment was made with regard to the Right Man needed to star in a future blockbuster. Asa Passed Over on 15 March 2016, but were he still alive he’d be delighted to hear that Welshman are dying out after the Trauma that was inflicted upon him all those years ago.

 

After his time at Worcester College, Oxford, William Shelton lectured on economics for a year at the University of Texas at Austin, before moving into business and advertising, which included work in South America.

Shelton married Anne Warder in 1960 and was knighted in 1989. Shelton developed Alzheimer’s disease in the 1990s and it eventually caused his death on 2 Jan 2003.

On 24 Nov 2002, Mr Bridgy Celeb managed to kill Kostadin Yankov, a biochem student at Oxford, after firing him from a medieval catapult. The Gang were after my blood at the time, attempting to fit me up for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’ after some eight NHS staff and a police officer kindly lied in statements. The case against me collapsed on the first day of the trial when it became obvious that yet again, industrial scale perjury had been committed and in 2003 I pleaded guilty to the lowest category of Public Order Offence instead. Sentence was suspended for a Psychiatric Report, ordered by bent Judge Huw Daniel, one of the Gang (as was Huw’s dad, theologian Prof J.E. Daniel). Huw ordered the Report from Dr Tony ‘Do Nothing’ Roberts at the Hergest Unit, who not only had the highest suicide rate among his female patients of any Top Doc in England and Wales except for a Top Doc in Camden, but was the subject of a serious complaint to the NHS from me and my lawyer and I had written to the GMC about Roberts. Daniel threatened me with imprisonment for contempt of court if I did not ‘co-operate’ with the Report.

The stupid old git Daniel failed to remember that as the Hergest Unit were/are incapable of carrying out the simplest task, when I returned for sentencing, there was no Report and no-one at any point had asked me to attend any appointments with anyone at Hergest. So the stupid old fucker couldn’t even imprison me as he was clearly hoping to at every stage of the proceedings… I received the max sentence possible for such a trivial offence, over 100 hours community service. On community service I met a few other people who had been fitted up by Huw Daniel, including one young man who had the Huw Daniel Experience after he had confronted his probation officer about a solicitor in Caernarfon who was known to be sexually abusing under-aged boys.

One Corrupt Old Fool:See the source image

Some months after I was sentenced by Daniel for telling Alun Davies’s secretary over the phone that Davies was a fat idiot, Mr Bridgy Celeb was acquitted of manslaughter at Bristol Crown Court on 7 May 2004, not because he didn’t kill Kostadin, but because Mrs Justice Heather Hallett – now Dame Heather – stopped the trial and ordered the jury to acquit on a technicality.

See eg. ‘The Price Is Right’ for details of events and dates and the contents of interesting documentation compiled by NHS staff and others that demonstrates a huge conspiracy re the desperation to secure a conviction against me for a serious criminal offence on the grounds of sod all evidence. That post also explains how every organisation with responsibility either refused to investigate my complaint against Tony Roberts, Alun Davies et al or stalled and stalled until the time limits had passed. The GMC came into their own; my post ‘The General Medical Council – And Yet Another Forged Document’ discusses how in 2005, my lawyer found the GMC to be in possession of a high quality forged document purporting to be my letter of complaint about Tony Roberts, that made me sound like a Nutter.

Then there was the unlawful interference of the PNC to record a serious offence against my name of which I had never been charged yet alone convicted, the forged certificate of indictment found in the possession of Chester Court stating that I had pleaded guilty to violent disorder at Caernarfon Crown Court; I have never been charged with violent disorder…

This is why I cannot take the requests of police and others to Name Petty Criminals and Make A Complaint So That People Can Be Brought To Justice seriously. Huw Daniel et al were guilty of very serious crimes and the evidence was in my medical records. People witnessed what was happening at the time and Daniel even broke the law in open Court himself. Furthermore this sort of serious crime at the highest levels had been going on for years as my documents demonstrated. They should ALL have been jailed decades ago. No-one was interested and now I am not interested in helping a rotten-to-the-core corrupt state because the Top Docs are killing Important People. I – and others – are owed a bloody fortune in compensation after being forced into the arms of a gang of sex offenders and then subjected to state-endorsed assassination attempts. Pay up bastards and accept that you stupidity and lack of respect for us and our lives means that you are now in the hands of Killing Doctors.Image result for medical defence union slogan images

Bless!!! It couldn’t happen to nicer people! At least you can die in comfort in your bungalows and caravans, it won’t be in Risley Remand Centre or Denbigh like it was for so many…See the source imageSee the source image

 

William Shelton also lost heavily in the financial crisis at Lloyd’s of London and the 1990s property slump. Furthermore, accusations of financial irregularity led to the closure in 1995 of Access to Justice, a company that Shelton had set up to provide free legal advice to people on low incomes. Consequently, Shelton was given a five-year ban from serving as a company director.

Shelton entered politics upon his return to London in 1964, becoming that year the President of the Wandsworth Young Conservatives. Shelton was elected to the Greater London Council to represent Wandsworth in 1967, and in 1968 he became the Chief Whip of the Conservative majority on the ILEA.

In the late 1960s, Gwynne and Dafydd’s emissaries, the key one being John Tilley, arrived in south London to organise and prepare for John Allen opening the Bryn Alyn Community, which would receive hundreds of kids in care from across England and Wales, but in particular from certain areas, south London being one of them. All Cllrs and politicians were on board, but Labour supporter Tilley was extra-helpful, becoming Leader of Wandsworth Borough Council and then the MP for Lambeth Central, before working in a senior capacity for Hackney Borough Council when he lost his Commons seat. See ‘Lord Snooty The Third’. Tilley was mates with Lord Scarman and heavily influenced Scarman’s Report re the 1981 Brixton riots, which was just as well because the Gang were running Brixton as well. See eg. ‘Only One Died’. Gwynne and Dafydd were also in cahoots with the ILEA, who also sent kids to north Wales children’s homes, under all Leaders, whether it was Field Marshall Lord Brammall’s brother Ashley Brammall or that focus of much piss taking, Frances Morrell. Ashley Brammall was a Labour politician but was always a good mate of the Grocer Heath, with whom he had been at Balliol; Heath succeeded Ashley as MP for Bexley. Ashley was a barrister of Inner Temple a la Lord Snowdon’s dad Ronald Armstrong-Jones, Mr Thrope and the Havers family. Ashley was Chairman of ILEA, 1965-67, Leader of ILEA, 1970-81 and the Chairman of the GLC, 1982-83. Dear old Jack Straw colluded with the Gang when he was Sorting Out ILEA. ILEA was a standing joke, but no-one Mentioned Gwynne And Dafydd. Image result for medical defence union slogan imagesSee the source imageImage result for frances morrell imagesSee previous posts. Ashley Brammall died on 10 Feb 1999; William Mars-Jones died on 10 Jan 1999; Ioan Bowen Rees died on 4 May 1999; there were more as well… Like 1995, 1999 was a busy year for Insider witness funerals.

Neither was it just bent old Cllrs in London or the pillocks of ILEA who were working hard in London. John Allen took out a 20 year lease on the building that housed the Bryn Alyn Community in 1968; at the same time, Paul Brett Storey the St George’s psych forged the partnership/link between St G’s, then still located in Knightsbridge and Springfield Hospital in Tooting (see ‘Meet The Gwerin!’). So the Top Docs running the elitist den of hatred that served the Rich Aristocratic Criminals of Belgravia went into business with the managers of the dumping ground of the dispossessed of Tooting. The Westminster Paedophile Ring was ready to expand rapidly and vastly.

Shelton’s association with Thatch began when she became Grocer Heath’s Shadow Secretary of State for Education and Science in 1967. Shelton refused to participate in the racism directed towards his Labour opponent David Pitt in the 1970 General Election. Previous posts have discussed Lord David Pitt, a West Indian GP who practised in Euston and who had previously been the subject of much overt racism when he stood as the Labour candidate in Hampstead. David Pitt colluded with exactly the same criminality a la Gwynne and David as Shelton did; Shelton wouldn’t need to be racist about Pitt, they were effectively in business together. Pitt was a founder member of the Anti-Apartheid Movement, they met at his house in their earliest days. He was a good mate of Peter Hain and of Ruth First and Joe Slovo, which really gave David Pitt street cred. Nelson Mandela unveiled the blue plaque at 13 Lime Street, Camden Town, where Joe Slovo and his wife Ruth First lived between 1966 and 1978. Picture: PA/Kirsty WigglesworthThat group also enjoyed the support of Chris Patten’s wife Lavender. David Pitt’s Commons ambitions were encouraged by Harold Wilson. Pitt faced hostility from some black activists who denounced him as an Uncle Tom over his attitudes to matters such as black people joining the police. I haven’t read enough on that subject to take a position, black politics of the time was fragmented and complex and I don’t know enough about it, but I do know that David Pitt was one of the Top Docs facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. The medical establishment was and still is institutionally racist in a major way and Pitt was ruthlessly used by them and used them in return. The BMA finally permitted a Black Person ie. David Pitt, to hold High Office in 1984 when those two lefties at UCNW refused to shut up about Gwynne…See the source image

See previous posts for info on Pitt, Ruth First, Slovo et al. They ALL colluded with the Gang. The Radical Voices See the source image just weren’t that Radical if the oppressed could be exploited for sex or were blowing the whistle on Important People See the source imageSee the source imageor people who didn’t matter.Image result for bag lady images

William Shelton became an early monetarist, a supporter of the EEC as a trade bloc and an advocate of parental choice in schooling.

During the 1970 General Election campaign, when Shelton stood as the successful Tory candidate for Clapham against David Pitt, the BMA overtly supported the Grocer, shared platforms with Tory candidates and organised industrial action on the part of GPs just weeks before the General Election, knowing that the electorate would believe Top Docs if they declared that the Grocer’s Gov’t would be better for the NHS. The BMA did this to kick Harold Wilson’s DHSS Secretary Westminster Swinger Richard Crossman because Crossman had refused to pay the BMA the full salary increase that they had requested. The Grocer’s personal physician and close friend was Top Doc Sir Brian Warren, who refused to ever work in the NHS and was totally opposed to it…

Warren was married to Dame Josephile Barnes (see ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’ who was a Consultant Obs and Gynae at Charing Cross and did undertake NHS work, while facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Josephile was the Top Doc appointed to the Warnock Committee on Fertility Treatment, that was Chaired by Mary Warnock and contained mostly lay people, to ensure that Docs and Scientists Didn’t Just Do What They Wanted. Josephile gave the orders, being the only person on the Committee who knew anything about the field and thus told Mary Warnock, Dafydd Wigley, Noreen Edwards and the collection of other people who found that Sitting On The Warnock Committee was one of the things of which they were most proud what to do. They did it too because they didn’t know their arses from their elbows. See previous posts.

Shelton was ‘a traditionalist on moral issues’. So was Dafydd, as the Welsh Baptists’ Union were glad to hear when Dafydd delivered a lecture to them in Llangefni (in the Presbytarian Chapel) in 1971 in which Dafydd explained that learning Bible verses in Welsh as a child could avert people from a ‘serious moral collapse’ later in life. See ‘A Serious Moral Collapse’. After the tea and biscuits, Dafydd and Gwynne popped over to Bryn Estyn because they had the Alsation and camera equipment to drop off in time for the arrival of Peter Morrison, Sir Anthony Meyer, Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon, George Thomas, Jimmy Savile, an unspecified McAlpine and Gordon Anglesea later that evening.

The Baptists’ newsletter in which Dafydd’s comments to the Welsh Baptists Union are reported is so splendid, so incriminating and names so many of Gwynne and Dafydd’s fellow criminals, most of whom are Baptist missionaries who literally span the globe – the HQ being the Southern Baptists in the deep south of the USA – that I’m putting the link in here. I invite readers to marvel at the extent of Gwynne and Dafydd’s reach, simply via the Baptist Church, let alone their other partners in crime.

http://media.sbhla.org.s3.amazonaws.com/3215,14-Jul-1971.pdf

(sorry, doesn’t look as though the link is working; the newsletter can be read in ‘A Serious Moral Collapse’).

I’ll draw attention in particular to just a few lines from the newsletter:

Youth requires a spiritual experience and if the church does not offer it, he will turn to drugs to get it,” said Gwyn Tudno Jones, a Welsh probation officer for more than 20 years. [Dafydd used the same line in the summer of 1984, when he addressed a public lecture in Bangor, organised by the then Bishop of Bangor, Cledan Mears, on the subject of Class A drug use in Gwynedd and Anglesey, Dafydd being the source of the Class As that were flying around, as discussed in my post ‘Amber Rudd, The Miners’ Strike and A Memory Jogged’.] [Gwyn Tudno] Jones was one of two professionals on Welsh social problems [the other one being Dafydd] addressing the annual meeting of the Welsh Baptist Union.

Delegates to the convention adopted resolutions objecting to liberalized liquor licensing laws, expressing appreciation for government help for alcoholics [as provided by Dafydd], and urging restraint in advertising strong drinks. Other resolutions approved a report on smoking by the Royal College of Physicians, expressed regret at increased unemployment in Wales, and urged the qovernment to do everything possible to alleviate the resultant distress and trace the root causes of unemployment.

Turning their attention to their own fellowship, the Welsh Baptists discussed ways to increase their ministers· retirement pensions, and the possibility of buying advertising on commercial television and radio. The denomination’s council is continuing the study on mass media advertising.

The new President of the Union, W. M. Rees of Aberdare, Wales. issued a plea in his inaugural address for a deep concern for society in all its aspects, from preaching peace to supporting the movement for self-government in Wales and equal status for the Welsh language with English.

The Probation Service, both in north Wales and on a UK level, was in cahoots with the Gang. See ‘Only One Died’. The comments of W.M. Rees of Aberdare illustrate how this bunch of ruthless serious criminals infiltrated a range of Causes, some of them very worthwhile to spread their poison and recruit new Gang members….

 

William Shelton was a Zionist, and concerned with Greek and Polish interests, as opposed to Christian Missionary Work, peace building, people on probation, smoking cessation, alcoholism, Welsh Language Rights or indeed averting a serious moral collapse. Shelton served as PPS to Sir John Eden, Minister of State for Posts and Telecommunications, 1972-74.

John Benedict Eden, Baron Eden of Winton, (born 15 September 1925) was the MP for Bournemouth West, 1954-83. Eden was educated at Eton and St Paul’s School, New Hampshire, USA. He served with the Rifle Brigade, 2nd Gurkha Rifles and the Gilgit Scouts during the Second World War. John Eden is a nephew of Sir Anthony Eden (1897–1977), who served as Prime Minister, 1955-57. Sir Anthony’s circle, including his son Nicholas who died from AIDS in Aug 1985, were users of services provided by Gwynne and Dafydd… John Eden succeeded his father Sir Timothy Calvert Eden to his baronetcies in 1963. John Eden is the 9th Baronet of West Auckland and the 7th Baronet of Maryland.

John Eden was appointed to the Privy Council on 10 April 1972 and was created a life peer as Baron Eden of Winton, of Rushyford in the County of Durham on 3 October 1983, following his retirement from the Commons. The Gang moved in on Brown and I proper eg. murder threats etc from early 1983. John Eden retired from the House of Lords on 11 June 2015 under the provisions of the House of Lords Reform Act 2014. Following the death of Lord Healey on 3 October 2015, Eden became the surviving former MP with the earliest date of first election.

John Eden’s Appointments:

  • Member of the House of Commons Estimates committee (1960–1964)
  • Delegate to Council of Europe and West European Union (1960–1962)
  • Delegate to NATO Technology (June–October 1970)
  • Minister of State for Industry (1970–1972)
  • Minister of State for Posts and Telecommunications (1972–1974)
  • Member of the House of Commons Expenditure committee (1974–1976)
  • Chairman of the Select Committee on EEC Legislation (1976–1979)
  • Chairman of the Select Committee on Home Affairs (1980–1983)
  • Chairman of the British Lebanese Association (1990–1998)
  • Chairman of the Royal Armouries Association (1986–1994)
  • Member of Timken Company International Advisory Board
  • Chairman of Lady Eden’s Schools Ltd

John Eden has been twice married:

  • 1) Belinda Jane Pascoe (1954 – divorced 1974); four children
    • The Honourable Emily Rose Eden (born 1959)
    • The Honourable Arabella Charlotte Eden (born 1960)
    • The Honourable Robert Frederick Calvert Eden (born 30 April 1964). Heir apparent to the baronetcies.
    • The Honourable John “Jack” Edward Morton Eden (born 1966). Heir presumptive to the baronetcies.
  • 2) Margaret Ann Gordon (1977 to date). A former wife of the Earl of Perth.

 

William Shelton was one of the first people to advocate for Thatch to succeed the Grocer as Tory Leader, becoming second-in-command to Thatch’s campaign manager Airey Neave. Airey who was blown sky-high on 30 March 1979 by, it now seems likely, rogue members of the security services, possibly the CIA, although the IRA were blamed at the time. See the source imagePoor old Thatch was pole-axed when Airey was killed and used the memorable line ‘Some devil has got him’ when interviewed on TV. It was most likely one of their own devils with a personal axe to grind, this lot were truly appalling…

realised that his chances of becoming PM were buggered after his crooked business dealings began to become public knowledge and my grandfather refused to shut up. See eg. ‘The Milk Street and Other Mafias’. Shelton is reputed to have organised the successful “stealth” campaign to convince backbench Conservatives on the Party’s right wing that by backing Thatch in the leadership ballot they could oust Grocer Heath. Shelton mobilised du Cann’s contingent then, after du Cann knew that he couldn’t stand himself. I wonder if Shelton had a hand in the lunch at the Clarence in 1974 when Thatch was still Education Secretary?

After Thatch’s victory in the leadership election, Shelton became her PPS, but resigned the following year, preferring the freedom of the backbenches. Shelton continued his interest in education, repeatedly being elected Vice-Chairman of the backbench Conservative Education Committee, and serving as a junior Minister in the Dept of Education and Science, 1981-83, in which role Shelton increased computer provision in primary schools and proposed a new vocational qualification of secondary education.

The Education Secretary at the time was Sir Keith Joseph, an old pal of Gwynne and Dafydd’s who went back to Macmillan’s Gov’t with them and the associated sleaze and criminality. Joseph was an MP for a Leeds constituency at Jimmy Savile Central. As Grocer Heath’s DHSS Secretary, Joseph appointed Barbara Kahan as his advisor of children’s social work. Babs and her husband child psychiatrist Dr Vladimir Kahan had for years facilitated organised abuse, including in Oxfordshire where the Kahans had been based for years. In Oxfordshire, Babs was the line manager of paedophile Louis Minster, who later became Director of Richmond-upon-Thames Social Services, in which post he caused havoc. Babs remained very influential in children’s social work for years, sitting on Committees, contributing in many ways and worked with paedophile social work academic Peter Righton at the NCB (National Children’s Bureau). After the Staffordshire Pin Down Scandal of the late 1980s, Babs Co-Chaired the subsequent Public Inquiry, with Allan Levy QC. They did their job well; they waxed lyrical about the Terrible Abuse without admitting that it was far more serious than they ever admitted and was causing massive problems in the regional NHS Image result for medical defence union slogan imagesand at Keele University, that every politician and Cllr in Staffordshire knew about and were colluding with, including Disability Champ Jack Ashley – father of political journo Jackie Ashley, who is married to Andrew Marr – and Baroness Llinos Golding, Image result for llinos goldingwho inherited her seat from her husband John. Llinos – who worked as an NHS radiographer – was the daughter of old south Wales Labour stalwart Ness Edwards, a mate of Nye; Nye’s wife Jennie Lee was the MP for er Cannock in Staffs… See the source imageSee the source imageNeither did Babs and Levy dare mention that the organised abuse was facilitated by police corruption, including that of the infamous West Midlands Serious Crime Squad and was part of a UK network of organised paedophilia and trafficking… Levy subsequently worked with the GMC.

Shelton became an increasingly vocal critic of local gov’t. He clashed with the left-wing leadership of his local Lambeth Council – [which was hosting the same ring as Shelton was facilitating] – and promoted a Bill in 1981 to restrain local gov’t spending. However, he opposed Thatcher’s flagship Community Charge, because it was designed to give Local Authorities more independence.

Shelton was known as a Thatcherite, serving on Thatch’s campaign team in the Leadership election of 1989. The Leadership battle was caused by the challenge from the stalking horse Sir Anthony Meyer, who was expecting Heseltine to enter the competition as the ‘serious’ candidate; Sir Anthony, a Tory MP for Flintshire, was a Westminster Swinger who’s grandmother was a close friend of Bertrand Russell’s first wife Alys Pearsall. Anthony used services provided by Gwynne and Dafydd, as did Nigel Birch aka Lord Rhyl, who held Meyer’s seat before Meyer and ensured that Meyer won the nomination in 1970, when Birch stepped down. Birch’s Commons career dated back to the Profumo Affair and Nigel was suitably Shocked and Disgusted at the Whores and Tarts who had been procured by Gwynne and Dafydd when the Ugandan discussions were discussed in Parliament. Shelton opposed Thatch’s resignation in 1990. Thatch’s execution as PM in Nov 1990 was orchestrated by Bodger and co at St George’s, the BMA and disillusioned Tories including Heseltine, Howe and Hurd. I was working at St George’s at the time and was used in the battle. See the source imageShelton was confident of retaining his seat in 1992, but, having been defeated, he received 5000 letters of thanks, mostly from people who had voted Labour.

The Indie published an obituary for Shelton:

William Jeremy Masefield Shelton, politician: born Plymouth, Devon 30 October 1929; MP (Conservative) for Clapham 1970-74, for Streatham 1974-92; PPS to the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications 1972-74; PPS to Margaret Thatcher 1975; Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, DES 1981-83; chairman, GGK London 1984-86; Kt 1989; married 1960 Anne Warder (one son, one daughter); died 2 January 2003.

It is likely that William Shelton will be better remembered as Airey Neave’s able and loyal second in the successful campaign to secure Margaret Thatcher the Conservative Party leadership in 1975 than for his brief careeras a junior minister in her government or his service as a hard-working and popular MP. His interest in education was long-standing and he played his part in the policy revolution that put parents at the centre of Conservative education policy during their years in opposition. Although dropped from her government after the 1983 election, he remained a loyal Thatcherite and was a member of Thatcher’s campaign team when Sir Anthony Meyer challenged her leadership in 1989.

William Jeremy Masefield Shelton was the son of a Guernsey Regular, Lt-Col Richard Shelton, and was educated at Radley College, in Oxfordshire, Tabor Academy in Massachusetts (on an English-Speaking Unionscholarship) and Worcester College, Oxford, where he read PPE. After a year lecturing in economics at the University of Texas in Austin, Shelton joined the advertising firm Colman, Prentis and Varley in 1952 and spent some years working in South America with Corpa in Caracas and as managing director of CPV (Colombiana) Ltd in Bogota, before becoming a director of CPV (International) in 1964 and its managing director, 1967-74. From 1974 to 1981 he chaired Fletcher, Shelton, Delaney and Reynolds.

He quickly proved he was very much his own man, a pragmatic supporter of the EEC as a trading entity and an informed critic of the inflationary policies upon which the Heath government embarked in 1972. Publicly silenced by his role as PPS to the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications, in private he was an early exponent of monetarism, but one who acknowledged alsothe inflationary role of trade-union monopoly power. When the parliamentary boundaries were revised, Shelton won the nomination to succeed Duncan Sandys in Streatham, and he held what looked to be a highly marginal seat with considerable success for 18 years.

He opposed the calling of the February 1974 election as divisive and was among the first to consider that Thatcher should succeed Heath as leader. When in November malicious rumours that she was hoarding food were circulated, in an attempt to shipwreck her leadership bid, it was to Shelton that she said that they had destroyed Joseph, “but they will not destroy me”.

When the second ballot confirmed her victory, Shelton became her PPS. However, he stood down in the following November, preferring the freedom of the backbenches. To take the job, he had surrendered his role as Honorary Secretary, effectively the Parliamentary voice, of the Conservative National Advisory Committee on Education, but had continued to be a staunch advocate of parental choice and a supporter of experimenting with education vouchers.

 In 1975 he made an abortive effort to put the Parents’ Charter drafted by the Conservative Party on to the statute book. Throughout these years, control of the backbench Conservative Education Committee was in dispute, Shelton becoming Vice-Chairman in 1974-5, 1976-7, 1978-9, and 1979-81, but losing the Secretaryship to Nicholas Winterton in 1975 and the Chairmanship to Bill Van Straubenzee in 1979.
Winterton was a Tory MP with a seat in Cheshire – as was his wife Ann – who were somehow known among Somerset Tories in the 1970s as Westminster Swingers.

Van Straubenzee has been named as one of those who was a member of the Westminster Paedophile Ring; his name was on Gov’t documents in connection with child abuse. Van S was a Bachelor.

In opposition from 1964, Van S served as Spokesman on Labour and Social Services, and then as an education spokesman where his views were heavily influenced by Sir Edward Boyle. Boyle was an academic who as Chairman of the UGC intended to close UCNW down, but the Gang saved their skin three years later in 1984 when Boyle had been replaced as Chairman by Peter Swinnerton-Dyer, a senior figure at Trinity College Cambridge, who was personally known to some academics at UCNW, including the AUT Rep, who’s father was a Top Doc in Gwynedd and who was facilitating the ring and knew Gang. Furthermore he’d been at Cambridge when Carlo was at Trinity and Carlo’s status as ‘AC/DC’ was openly discussed. So the bacon of UCNW was saved in return for my career being wrecked. Boyle by that time had become VC of Leeds University who thus knew much about Savile, as well as Gwynne, Dafydd and Carlo… See previous posts.

Van Straubenzee served in Grocer Heath’s Gov’t as junior Higher Education Minister for Education and Science from 1970 to 1972, under Secretary of State Thatch. Van S was promoted to Northern Ireland Minister from 1972 to 1974, where he fully engaged the Roman Catholic community and often angered the Ulster Unionist Party. After joining Heath’s Shadow Cabinet in March 1974 as shadow Education Secretary, Van S avowed support for comprehensive school education brought him into conflict with the man who held ‘spanking parties with little boys’ – as was discussed in the tea room at St George’s – Norman St John Stevas. The political fight was won by Thatcher and Stevas, who replaced him as Educational spokesperson, whilst Van Straubenzee was moved by Heath to become Shadow Defence Spokesperson. With his political career blunted, especially after Thatch replaced Heath as Leader in 1975 and sacked him from the Shadow Cabinet, van Straubenzee focused on his work with the Church of England and backbench efforts.

Van Straubenzee was a member of the House of Laity, 1965-70, and was elected to the General Synod of the Church of England in 1975 serving until 1985. He Chaired the Synod’s Dioceses Commission, 1978-86 and was appointed by Thatch to be the Second Church Estates Commissioner in 1979 (dealing with Anglican Church matters in the House of Commons), a post he held until he stood down in 1987.

Thatch made William Shelton a junior Minister at Education in 1981 and in the two years he spent in office he did much to further the equipment of primary schools with computers and brought forward proposals for the Certificate of PreVocational Education to be taken by less academic students at 17+.

Bitter clashes with the left-wing leadership of the London Borough of Lambeth
Who were also in business with the Gang
turned him into an increasingly vocal critic of local government. Not only did Shelton promote a Bill in 1981 to curb local government extravagance, but he opposed the poll tax, since it was designed to give local councils more independence. He was greatly irritated when Ken Livingstone talked out his anti-kerb-crawling Bill in 1990. Shelton was confident of retaining his seat in 1992, although he would have wished there had been no change of leader. In the event, he was badly beaten and remarked that afterwards he had received 5,000 letters of thanks for his work, mostly from people who had voted for his opponent.

Shelton had continued his career in advertising as chairman of Washer, Fox, Coughlin, established his own firm, Shelton Consultants, in 1983 and became a shareholder and director of Saracen Consultants in 1987. However, his fortunes went awry. In 1991 he was told that he had lost heavily in the Lloyd’s débâcle and he was also a victim of the property slump. Access to Justice, a company launched in 1995 to give free legal advice to the impecunious, was wound up two years later amidst charges of financial irregularity. Shelton was subsequently given a five-year ban on serving as a company director.

This obituary was written by John Barnes.

Grauniad published an obituary for Shelton:

In 1974-75 Sir William Shelton, who has died at 73 from Alzheimer’s disease, was Margaret Thatcher’s unofficial “chief whip” in her Conservative leadership campaign against Edward Heath. He then agreed to become one of her parliamentary private secretaries, but resigned after six months, having learned that bag-carrying for her was a full-time occupation.

Thus did Sir William gain a reputation, with his then fellow Conservative MP Airey Neave, as having been largely responsible for replacing Heath withThatcher. Yet he had been a mild Heath supporter until his monetarist views led to a parting of the ways in 1973.

Sir William was a competent advertising man who became a very able constituency MP, first for Clapham (1970-74) and then for Streatham(1974-92)See the source imageImage result for medical defence union slogan images

in south London, with a special interest in education.See the source imageHe was a man of mature judgment, who suffered from the polarisation within his party – and opposed Thatcher’s poll tax.

The son of an army officer from Guernsey, he was born in Plymouth, and educated at Radley College, in Oxfordshire, until he was evacuated in 1940, to Tabor Academy in Marion, Massachusetts. He graduated from Worcester College, Oxford, and then briefly lectured in economics at the University of Texas.

From the age of 23, he was a professional adman, initially for Colman, Prentice and Varley, which then had the Conservative party account. Sent by the firm to Venezuela, he met and married Anne Warder, daughter of thepresident of Shell Oil there.

Previous posts have discussed how Shell effectively ran the London Hospital, largely as a result of the influence of Sir Henry Tizard, Churchill’s Scientific Advisor at the start of WW II. Tizard knew Gwynne and many of the Cwm Croesor crowd vis people like Lord Patrick Blackett. All three of Sir Henry’s sons were of the Gang, in particular Prof Sir Peter Tizard, a paediatrician who, after working at Hammersmith and Great Ormond Street, was appointed Prof of Paediatrics at Oxford University. William Asscher,

who’s father worked for Shell, was rejected from every medical school place for which he applied, so Asscher’s dad had a word with Shell-connected people at the London Hospital and Asscher was in. See previous posts.

He then became managing director of CPV’s Colombian subsidiary. He was appointed CPV (International) director in 1964, managing director in 1967 and MD of Grosvenor Advertising in 1969. Further executive posts followed.

In 1964 he also became president of the Wandsworth Young Conservatives. He was elected to the Greater London Council for Wandsworth and in 1968 became the Inner London Education Authority Conservative chief whipduring the three-year period when the Tories dominated it. Then in 1970 – without playing the race card – he won Clapham against Labour’s West Indian-born Dr David (later Lord) Pitt.

By 1973 his ambivalence towards the EEC had turned into antipathy. And in a letter to the Daily Telegraph he denounced what he saw as the stoking up of inflation. It was Thatcher’s tight money policy which won her his backing.

Anxious to find a new role for comprehensive schools in big city areas, in 1981 he became under secretary for education. He introduced computer training into primary schools and strengthened vocational training for the over-17s, but was dropped by Thatcher in 1983.

Subsequently he seemed to lose his moderate pragmatic way. He lost his seat to Labour’s Keith Hill in 1992. His last decade was not a happy one, with losses at Lloyd’s, in the property slump, and the collapse of a free-legal-advice firm, which led to his being barred as a company director. He is survived by his wife and his adopted son and daughter.

Shelton was preceded as the Streatham MP by Duncan Sandys, du Cann’s friend and business partner. Sandys was a Director and then Chair of Lonrho, while du Cann was Director and Chair of Lonrhon, they swapped roles. Sandys’s first wife was Diana Churchill and Sandy’s Govt jobs were very obviously the result of nepotism. Diana and Sandys divorced in 1960. Sandys was in the thick of the Profumo Affair; Sandys was a friend and patient of Stephen Ward, but dropped Ward when the scandal broke.

Diana had several nervous breakdowns. In 1962, she began working with the Samaritans. On 20 Oct 1963, Diana died, at age 54, from an overdose of barbiturates. A coroner later concluded that the death was a suicide. Stephen Ward died from an overdose of barbiturates on 3 Aug 1963, during his trial. Stephen was found guilty in his absence, while he lay dying. Stephen’s death was concluded to be a suicide.

In 1962, Sandys married Marie-Claire (née Schmitt), who had been previously married to Robert Hudson, 2nd Viscount Hudson. The marriage lasted until Sandys’ death on 26 Nov 1987. It has long been speculated that Duncan Sandys may have been the ‘headless man’ whose identity was concealed during the (then considered) scandalous divorce trial of Margaret, Duchess of Argyll, in 1963.

William Shelton was preceded as MP for Clapham by:

Born
Margaret McCarthy

22 January 1907
Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire

Died 1 March 1996 (aged 89)
Political party Labour

Margaret McKay (née McCarthy) was Labour MP for Clapham, 1964-70. Dafydd’s Gang were organising in Clapham when McKay was the constituency MP when John Tilley first arrived in south London making friends with Labour Cllrs in the various south London Councils.

Despite later assertions that McKay was born in 1911, she was in fact born on 22 January 1907 at Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, a daughter of Joseph and Betsy Ann (Catlow) McCarthy. McKay’s family moved to New Bedford, Massachusetts in her youth, but then returned to England. McKay joined the Independent Labour Party’s Guild of Youth, then the Young Communist League, graduating to the Communist Party of Great Britain. McKay’s left the Communist Party in 1932, joining the Labour Party and became active in the Socialist League, a left-wing pressure group within the Party, serving as its General Secretary from 1936 until it was dissolved the following year. McKay also became General Secretary of the National Union of Domestic Workers, a national organiser for the TGWU and TUC Women’s Officer (1951–1962).

Lord Jack Jones, who was elected General Secretary of the TGWU in 1968, worked for the British security services and stood accused of being a KGB double agent. Jack Jones was friends with Richard Crossman, Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Lady Juliet Bingley – wife of Sir Admiral Alec Bingley, NATO Commander – as well as with Dom Mintoff, the PM of Malta, who doubled up as a senior member of the Maltese Mafia. They were all involved with corrupt civic life, business deals directly linked to the trafficking ring run by Gwynne and Dafydd and gambling/Class A drug dealing that included Lady Juliet ‘building hospitals’ in Malta. Whatever they were up to, Harold Wilson knew about it because he was ensuring that Crossman’s jollies over to Malta to stay at Mintoff’s house – Lord Jack Jones enjoyed the hospitality of Mintoff as well – never became public.

After holding various trade union posts, at the 1964 General Election, McKay defeated the sitting Conservative MP Alan Glyn for Clapham, taking the seat with a majority of only 556. At the 1966 General Election McKay increased her majority to over 4,000 against the Conservative Ian Gow, but she stood down at the 1970 General Election. Ian Gow, a solicitor who served as Tory MP for Eastbourne, 28 February 1974-30 July 1990 and Thatch’s PPS, 4 May 1979-13 June 1983, was, like Airey, at the heart of much Gang activity who was assassinated ‘by Irish Republicans’ but more probably because of Gow’s involvement in organised abuse.

Gow was killed on 30 July 1990, by a bomb placed under his car, a la Airey Neave.

An extract from my post ‘The Bitterest Pill’:

Sir Peter Morrison was Minister of State for Energy, 11 June 1987-23 July 1990. On July 10 1990, Gwynedd Social Services took me to Court in Chester and attempted to have me imprisoned on numerous charges of breaching the High Court injunction that they had obtained against me in Feb 1990, on the basis of the perjury of two Gwynedd social workers, Keith Fearns and Jackie Brandt. [See ‘The Bitterest Pill.’] When I appeared at Chester Court, Fearns, Brandt and their social worker colleague Maggie Fookes, as well as their CPN colleague Bob Ingham, perjured themselves to such an extent that something like 13 or 14 charges against me were thrown out. The Presiding judge, Justice John Roch – he later became Lord Justice Roch – helpfully asked if they would like more time to rewrite their statements, presumably in order to get their stories straight. Their barrister politely turned down the request, but why I have no idea. My post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ provides details of: the perjury; the forged documents, which included a forged letter from a Top Doc, Carl Littlejohns, who had previously been employed at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh; the collusion of the Welsh Office with Ron Evans, the bent lawyer employed by Gwynedd County Council; and the change of judge and Court of which my barrister Suzanne Evans was not told, she was sent to the wrong Court and arrived late and stressed for my case.

Suzanne Evans knew that there had obviously been an attempt to rig the trial; she was a young, unknown barrister and after it became clear that industrial scale perjury had been exposed, Roch became very angry with her, rather than the perjurers. He shouted at Suzanne and she was clearly intimidated; as was I, I realised that we were dealing with a madman who was ignoring the obvious lies of four witnesses. Suzanne Evans however has gone on to forge a nice career for herself in the Family Courts having rolled over for a gang of paedophiles (see previous posts), so it was clearly worth it.

On 23 July 1990, Peter Morrison was appointed as PPS to Thatch. On 24 July 1990, administrators at Clwyd Health Authority contacted Andrew Park (the crooked Welsh Office lawyer) claiming that I had rung a Kay Hemsley at the North Wales Hospital and threatened an Angel. No-one could produce evidence that I had done this or that if such a call had been received it was me who had made it, so Park wrote to Clwyd Health Authority requesting that next time could Hemsley remember to explain how she knew that it was me calling. Kay followed orders, within a short while she had given a written account of another call supposedly from me and explained that she knew that it was me because she had spoken to me before and recognised my voice. Park had been busy anyway, informing Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities that he wanted as much information as possible, to build up a complete ‘dossier’ against me. The perjury and forging of documents continued apace. See ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’.

Six days later Ian Gow was killed. See the source imageSee the source image

The Maggie
The Maggie original poster.jpg

 

After Mary Wynch finally got out of Denbigh, because the hassle and intimidation from the Gang didn’t cease, Mary went into hiding, specifically at Eastbourne. I went to Eastbourne and spent the day with Mary not long before Ian Gow was killed. I don’t know the exact day on which I met Mary, but the Gang will have known because I was being trailed everywhere by the security services. Not long after I met Mary, Dafydd asked me all casual-like if I’d ever met Mary… I met Mary after I read a sympathetic article about her in either ‘The Guardian’ or the Indie. Because Mary was in hiding, the newspaper offered to pass a letter onto Mary if I wrote to her and then Mary could decide whether to reply. Mary did reply, we spent the day in Eastbourne – I didn’t go to Mary’s house because the address was kept secret – and as we chatted, exchanged info and Mary showed me her documents, we got hassled by a small number of weird people, one being a very camp tramp who told us that we were pissing him off so much that he could understand why ‘people murder women’. I suspect that these odd unsavoury people were presents from the security services.

I must have met Mary sometime in 1989. After I began working at St George’s in May 1989, within a few weeks the dreadful Nita Mitchell-Heggs, the Occupational Physician who’s job was to protect criminals and get rid of whistleblowers, demanded that I be interviewed by her. Mitchell-Heggs was part of the conspiracy, she’d previously worked as a psychiatrist and knew Gwynne and Dafydd. I remember reminding M-H that Mary had won her case against Dafydd et al and had received extensive media coverage. Mitchell-Heggs felt able to ask if I believed that Mary ‘is a sane lady’. I told Nita that I had met Mary and she seemed quite sane to me…

After I blogged previously about Ian Gow, I was told that he was killed because of something to do with Mary, me and our meeting.

Ian Gow was not well-liked, he was described as being pompous and bellicose. Gow was born at 3 Upper Harley Street, London, the son of Alexander Edward Gow, a Top Doc at Bart’s, who died in 1952.

Alexander Edward Gow

b.9 March 1884 d.19 September 1952

MD Lond MRCS FRCP(1919)

Alexander Gow went to King Edward VI School, Stratford-on-Avon, when a boy and was a medical student at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. He held a number of junior appointments there and at the Great Northern Central Hospital (the Royal Northern Hospital) after qualifying in 1908, and was an assistant physician at the Queen’s Hospital, Hackney Road, when war broke out in 1914. He then joined the Navy as a surgeon-lieutenant and served through the Gallipoli campaign with the Naval Brigade and afterwards at Haslar. After the War he resumed his registrarship at St. Bartholomew’s and in 1919 was appointed first assistant in its medical clinic. He was elected to the staff as assistant physician in 1921 and promoted to full physician in 1930; after retiring, he became, in 1946, emeritus physician and, in 1951, consulting physician. Gow also held the appointment of Physician-in-Ordinary to the Duke of Kent from 1935 until the Duke’s death in 1942 and then that of Honorary Physician to the Household of the Duchess of Kent. He wrote, in conjunction with Lord Horder, with whom he was much associated, a book of high repute, The Essentials of Medical Diagnosis (1928). Gow was an authority on lymphadenoma but was distinguished chiefly as a clinician and as a teacher. He married in 1929 Helen Gordon Rannie and had two sons and a daughter.

Munk’s Roll Lives of the Fellows online also supplies a brief biography of another Gow who could have been a relative of Alexander Gow:

William John Gow

b.1863 d.19 June 1933

MD Lond MRCS FRCP(1904)

William Gow, second son of Rev. John Gow, was educated at Owens College, Manchester, and St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. He qualified in 1885, being Kirkes gold medallist and Brackenbury medical scholar of that year. He remained on the junior staff of St. Bartholomew’s till 1892 when he was appointed physician-accoucheur to outpatients at St. Mary’s, where he became consulting obstetric surgeon twenty-one years later. Gow also held an early appointment at the Metropolitan Hospital and was elected to the staffs of Queen Charlotte’s and the Royal Waterloo Hospitals, which both eventually appointed him to consulting rank. Although contemplating retirement when hostilities broke out in 1914, he volunteered his services. The ill effects of immersion in the water after the torpedoing of his ship, however, necessitated his complete retirement before the end of the War. Gow was a man of striking personality, a fine sportsman and keen horseman. He died while riding on Exmoor.

These two Ancient Gows were at Bart’s when Lord Snowdon’s grandfather Robert Armstrong-Jones was at Bart’s. Robert A-J grew up and went to school in north Wales, studied at UCNW, then Trained as a Top Doc at Bart’s, remained at Bart’s teaching and working as a Top Doc, before becoming a well-known psychiatrist, the Superintendent of Colney Hatch Asylum, that later became known as Friern Barnett. When I worked at St George’s, I shared a flat with a student psych Angel Hilda King, who I now know was working undercover. Hilda knew about Denbigh and we discussed it in detail. She also told me that Springfield Hospital had a dreadful reputation and that good nurses wouldn’t work there. Then Hilda reported abuse – a violent assault on a patient by a member of staff – in the GP-led community unit in which she was completing a placement. Hilda’s tutors refused to act on Hilda’s whistleblowing, they admitted that the assault that Hilda had reported had taken place but simply moved Hilda to another placement. The abusive nursing assistant remained in post. Hilda tried to go over the heads of her nursing tutors and discovered that because it was a GP run unit, there was no clear lines of responsibility and because the GPs refused to act, as did the nursing tutors, there was no-one for Hilda to refer the matter onto. The nursing assistant who had assaulted the old lady couldn’t be struck off because she wasn’t on any register, being unqualified.

Lord Snowdon’s father barrister Ronald A-J of Inner Temple was a governor of Bart’s.

Dafydd Wigley knew Ian Gow when they were either at school or at Manchester University together.

After Ian Gow’s murder, the Eastbourne seat was won by Lib Dem David Bellotti on 10 Oct 1990. By Oct 1990, there had been a whole series of High Court cases against me, the Gang perjuring themselves in each case – and being exposed as having committed perjury – in repeated attempts to have me imprisoned. See eg. ‘The Bitterest Pill’. The Top Docs and discontented Tories brought Thatch down in Nov 1990.

Bellotti took a great interest in Mary’s plight and tabled an Early Day Motion in the Commons in support of Mary on 19 March 1991: ‘This House urges an immediate review by the Home Secretary of the gross injustices suffered by Miss Mary Winch, now resident in Eastbourne, and recorded in the BBC Two programme ‘Taking Liberties’ on Tuesday 5 March’. Six MPs signed this Motion: Alan Beith (Liberal Democrat, Berwick-Upon-Tweed), Malcolm Bruce (Liberal Democrat, Gordon), Ronnie Fearn (Liberal Democrat, Southport), Geraint Howells (Liberal Democrat, Ceredigion and Pembroke North), Matthew Taylor (Liberal Democrat, Truro and St Austell) and Dafydd Wigley (Plaid Cymru, Caernarfon).

In Feb/March 1991, the Drs Francis took me to the High Court on the basis of the perjury once more. In April 1991, they took me to the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand, again having perjured themselves. My solicitor was ‘unavailable’ for the case and I did not have a barrister. St Helena was in a neighbouring Court representing Sara Thornton at Sara’s first appeal, a test case re Wimmin and Domestic Abuse. See ‘The Price Is Right’. St Helena lost the appeal, but St Helena’s colleague Michael Mansfield won Sara’s appeal in the latter part of 1996… I wrote to MM about the abuses of Gwynedd Social Services towards the end of 1993; I received a one line reply from MM.

On 31 March 1993, Alex Carlile asked the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor’s Dept, to order a full investigation into Mary’s case and asked when there was going to be a reply to letters concerning Mary’s case dated June 1991, August 1991, September 1991, October 1991 and May 1992.

Compare the dates of these letters with events happening to me at the hands of the Gang as detailed in eg. ‘The Price Is Right’. It’s a perfect fit re the Gang failing to succeed in having me imprisoned, so pretending the peace had broken out, only to launch another Cunning Plan…

By 31 March 1993, I’m fairly sure that Jackie Brandt, Gwynedd social worker, had lied to the police about F and me screaming and yelling abuse at her in Safeways in Bangor; or she did within a few days of 31 March 1993. We were not told that Brandt had made the police statement until some two/three weeks afterwards, when we were suddenly interviewed and charged. I can’t remember exactly when we were charged but we had our first appearance at Bangor Magistrates Court and pleaded not guilty I think in April 1993. Our trial was in July 1993. As far as I can work out, the police held back from charging F and I until Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon had died; the police could judge roughly when that would happen, Thomas died from AIDS during the earlier months of 1993. His dad Lord Kenyon died not long after Thomas, on 16 May 1993.

John M. Taylor replied to Carlile that Mary had taken legal action against the Public Trustee which had not yet concluded and he wouldn’t comment because proceedings were before the Courts. Hansard, 27 April 1995 recorded that Alex Carlile asked the Parliamentary Secretary Lord Chancellor’s Department if he would make a statement on the actions of the Public Trustee in relation to legal proceedings brought by Miss Phoebe Winch (once more Mary Agnes Wynch’s name was misrecorded).  John M. Taylor replied that he was unable to comment on individual cases where legal proceedings have been brought against the Public Trustee, who was also Chief Exec of the Public Trust Office. Taylor commented that she was also ‘an independent statutory office holder’ and ‘decisions that she takes in exercise of her statutory functions are those of her office and are not taken on behalf of Government’. Taylor adds that as the question concerns a specific case, he had asked the Chief Exec to reply direct. There follows the text of a letter from Julia Lomas to Alex Carlile, 25 April 1995. The mistake with Mary’s name is acknowledged and corrected and Lomas goes on to state that in 1982 Mary brought proceedings against the Public Trustee in relation to the administration of the estate of her dead mother, Violet Wynch. The proceedings were defended. The case was ‘complicated’ and the hearing was ‘anticipated to be lengthy and expensive’ and therefore in 1994 a payment of £15,000 into Court to settle the matter was authorised. Mary accepted this payment, which was made with no admission of liability on the point of the Public Trustee. ‘The Public Trustee has always been confident that had the case been fought the Public Trustee would have won, albeit at a disproportionate cost to public funds. The payment into Court was and remains regarded by me payment to save public funds rather than any admission as to the merits of Miss Winch’s case’.

Mary by then well into her 60s and penniless, who had been cheated out of her inheritance and property by Dafydd and the ring of solicitors who were supposedly working on behalf of Mary but all worked in collaboration with Dafydd was given a derisory final compensation settlement after demonstrating that all of her allegations about the Gang were indeed true. After Howard had ruined Mary, she was never mentioned in Parliament or indeed in the media again. Every MP who signed the EDM subsequently received a peerage. Except for David Bellotti, who lost his seat in the General Election of April 1992 and never returned to the Commons…

By April 1995, F and I had repeatedly raised concerns about Dafydd sexually abusing patients, in writing, verbally, to the Mental Health Act Commission and to the Gwynedd Community Health Trust. Their response had been to declare us Dangerous, ban us from the Hergest Unit and begin forging documents and planting evidence in pursuit of a Cunning Plan to declare me in particular to be so Dangerous that I should be sent to a high security psych hospital. In the spring of 1995, Hefin Davies, Chairman of the Trust, was consulting Welsh Office lawyers and Tony Lane, the Trust’s lawyer based in Caernarfon and asked them frankly if there was anything at all for which I could be prosecuted. See eg. ‘The Price Is Right’. 

 

While in Parliament, Margaret McKay became a supporter of Arab interests, creating a mock Palestinian refugee camp in Parliament Square and wearing Arab robes during debates. Jordan issued a postage stamp in McKay’s honour. After retiring from politics, McKay moved to Abu Dhabi. She became a friend of the then President, Sheikh Zayed, and died there on 1 March 1996. Margaret McKay is buried at Sas Al Nakhl cemetery.

McKay’s obituary (written by Tam Dalyell) for the Indie on

On being informed that Margaret McKay, his parliamentary colleague for Clapham, had set up a replica, tent and all, of a Palestinian refugee camp in Trafalgar Square, the exasperation of the then Foreign Secretary, Michael Stewart, knew no bounds. Any comment to convey his outrage was too mellow. “And I’m expected to run a constructive British foreign policy in the Middle East with this woman’s vote!” The felony was compounded by the fact that on 12 June 1968 McKay, who was chairman of the Jordan Refugee Week Committee, donned Arab robes to lead a deputation of fellow British and Jordanian MPs, along with Mrs Ahmed Elayan and her baby son Ghada and Mr Ismael Mohammed Ismael from Palestine, to the Foreign Office. Contrite McKay was not – and poured petrol on the flames by telling Her Majesty’s Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs that she thought, as a Cold Warrior, that he was quite unsuitable for this job in government.
Some months earlier she had retaliated to a verbal onslaught from George Brown, Stewart’s predecessor as Foreign Secretary, by telling him (unfairly) that his attitude to the Arabs was such that she thought that he ought to have learnt to behave properly when he was a shop assistant dealing with furs in a store.
Alex Kitson, chairman of the International Committee of the Labour Party, who knew McKay well, recalls: “When she was around the Trades Union Congress she was a rebel on behalf of the staff who, ironically, were not as well unionised as they ought to have been. In particular she did not like the general secretary of her own trade union, Arthur Deacon; and he liked her less.”

However, Kitson adds that though she was a thorn in so many people’s sides she was always prepared to be of help to those who needed it and his memories of her are good. She had been for a decade the women’s officer of the TUC and was no great respector of persons in authority. When I said to her, “Margaret, you’re an MP for the constituency of the underdog”, she replied a trifle tartly: “And, Tam, the under-bitch!” I knew I had been rebuked.

To understand Margaret McKay’s behaviour, it is more than usually necessary to reflect on her life before she became MP for Clapham at the age of 54. In her moving autobiography Generation in Revolt (1953, written under her maiden name Margaret McCarthy), she begins Chapter 1: “My mother was a rebel. She married a foreigner – an Irishman, and a Catholic, and she became a socialist!” The flagrant defiance of these steps, the utter flouting of the traditions of her family, can only be understood against the background of the life of the Lancashire moors. “My mother’s father was Catlow. The Catlow family reaches back to the days of the Norman lords of Oswaldtwistle. As far back as the 13th century records reveal the existence of the Catlows of Oswaldtwistle. Pete son of Richard de Catlow was there in 1305.”

McKay outlines how the family were landowners; how the old families had been accustomed for untold generations to live in close units on their ancient holdings, watching their flocks. Her mother was the first known member of the Catlow family in all the centuries to break out of the old tradition and marry outside the family circle. Worse still, she married one of the despised and feckless Irish families who had come to Lancashire to seek work in the cotton mills. Margaret’s father died when she was four and, the eldest of three children, she was brought up by her struggling mother. Politics, she writes, ‘ran in our bloodstream from my grandfather through my mother and on to her children, likewise from my paternal grandfather, a Sinn Feiner, through his son, an Irish home ruler, and so to us, to be merged into a potent mixture which was eventually to drive us “politics mad”, impel us into strange places among alien people and in my case to bring me political disillusionment and despair which forced me into the necessity and effort of building for myself a new philosophy. This was to be at variance with the traditional Methodism of my mother’s family, the careless Catholicism of my father and even, in the end, antagonistic to the materialist conception of history in which I became steeped in the days of my youth’.

In 1927 at the age of 16 Margaret McCarthy joined the Accrington Weavers Winders and Warpers Association. Soon she was chosen to be part of the youth delegation which went to Russia for the 10th anniversary of the 1917 revolution. She had enrolled for classes at the local branch of the National Council of Labour Colleges, where her first tutor, who taught her economic geography, the theory of surplus value and the inherent contradictions of the capitalist system, was one A.L. Williams, later, as Len Williams, the long-serving national agent of the Labour Party, created governor of Mauritius by Harold Wilson.

On 29 October 1927 the delegations both youth and adult met on Tower Hill, London, where a farewell demonstration was held and the veteran Labour leader Tom Mann came down and boarded the Russian vessel Soviet which was moored at Free Trade Wharf “to carry us all away, and there kissed us a hilarious, beery God speed. At three o’clock next morning we sailed off to a Socialist new world, a load of gay enthusiasts. Will Lawther, then a young, laughing , handsome man, was the leader of the adult delegation.” McKay grew up with the future trade union leaders; Will Lawther who, as the boss of the Durham miners, achieved fame by telling delegates of the Labour Party conference to shut their gob was later Sir Will Lawther, one of the all- powerful knights of the TUC.

McKay was captivated by Russia at that time. The delegation was housed magnificently in one of the grand Leningrad hotels with enormous rooms, the inevitable stuffed bears and potted palms, and whisked off on the first evening to see the ballet The Snow Maiden. For McKay it was as if she had been conveyed straight into fairyland. She met Krupskaya, Lenin’s widow, Madame Sun Yat-Sen and Russians such as Rykov and Bukharin and the youth leaders Chaplin and Shatsky.

As a Member of Parliament in her fifties looking backwards to the 1920s and considering the social conditions of the times and the circumstances of her own life she did not see in all honesty what else she could have done other than rebel:

‘I did not want to be a rebel. I was a normal, life-loving young teenager, interested in fun, dancing, boys and art. I just wanted to live with all my being and to the full extent of my capacities but this was denied me. Therefore, in sympathy with the spirit of those years I was possessed by a frenzy for change; and since a change, any change, could hardly be for the worse, it must inevitably be for the better. The Communist Party embodied and symbolised that great change, appeared as the instrument of it, pointed the way, even led us to audit, teaching us how, by revolutionising the economic pattern of society, we could solve the remainder of our problems and cure all the ills to which humanity, and particularly the workers, were subjected’.

Her disenchantment with Communism began on a visit to Germany in 1929 as the guest of the Communist Young Red Freedom Fighters Association. In 1931 she left the Communist Party over their attitude to the National Socialists in Germany. She was prescient about this trouble as she was to be prescient 30 years later about the difficulties which would be caused by the Palestinians.

It would be a wrong impression to suppose that McKay was all about exotic foreign causes. In 1929 with the build of a bantamweight boxer she had been one of the leaders of the Bradford hunger march of the textile workers to London. In the Second World War she organised the Civil Service Clerical Association in Lancashire, vigorously persuading workers to do as much to win the war as she possibly could.

In 1951 she was appointed chief woman officer of the TUC, and her 1954 book Women in Trade Union History recalls how she and her friends used every device and ruse to approach Margaret Bondfield and Jennie Lee during the time of the 1929-31 Labour government.

When she was elected MP for Clapham she pursued mainstream issues. Her maiden speech was made at 2.30am on 27 November 1964 in an adjournment debate on occupational hygiene service: ‘I will do my best to prove to the House that a new member can take a hard day’s night in the same spirit as any of the older members. I wish to draw to the notice of the House what lies behind the fact that 20 million working days are lost by workers suffering accidents and scheduled industrial diseases and that the position is not improving but is deteriorating’.

Ernest Thornton, Parliamentary Secretary at the Ministry of Labour, praised her for a “truly remarkable maiden speech”. A defining moment came when she was chosen as a member of the UN Commission on the Status of Women at their conference in Tehran in 1965. From then on she devoted herself to Arab causes. I asked her whether as a gentile I could inquire as to whether she was anti-Semitic. McKay was furious, perhaps understandably. She was not anti-Semitic, she was anti-Zionist, and that was a very different matter.

She had been elected for Clapham in 1964, defeating Dr Alan Glyn, later MP for Windsor, by 556 votes and winning against the late Ian Gow in 1966 by 4,176. However, by 1968, the Clapham press was referring to her as “the woman on the Abu Dhabi omnibus”. MPs who “take up causes” have to be assiduous in looking after their own constituencies and McKay was not. She was not re-selected for the 1970 general election, when Bill Shelton defeated the Labour candidate, the late Lord Pitt. She then went to live the next quarter-century of her life in Abu Dhabi, where Sheikh Zayed was kind and hospitable to her. Alex Kitson and I and her many friends prefer to remember her when she was a great force on the Left in the 1950s and early 1960s. Image result for mandy rice davies christine keeler

Tam Dalyell, who was a officer in the British security services, as I suspect was Margaret McKay, wrote this hagiography.

Margaret McKay (nee McCarthy): born Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire January 1911; chief woman officer, TUC 1951-62; MP (Labour) for Clapham 1964-70; married (one daughter); died Abu Dhabi 1 March 1996

Howz about this for Gwynne and Dafydd’s contact then, Margaret’s friend the Sheikh: Zayed-bin-Sultan-Al-Nahyan.jpg

Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (Arabic: ٱلشَّيْخ زَايِد بِن سُلْطَان آل نَهْيَان‎, romanized: Ash-Shaykh Zāyed bin Sulṭān Āl Nahyān); 6 May 1918 – 2 November 2004) was the ruler of Abu Dhabi for more than 30 years (6 August 1966-2 November 2004). He was the founding father and the principal driving force behind the formation of the United Arab Emirates, becoming the Union’s first Raʾīs (President), a post which he held for a period of almost 33 years (1971 until his death in 2004). He is popularly referred to in the UAE as the Father of the Nation.

Zayed was the youngest of four sons of Sheikh Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan. His father was the ruler of Abu Dhabi from 1922 until his death in 1926. Zayed was the youngest of his four brothers. His eldest brother, Sheikh Shakhbut bin Sultan Al Nahyan, became ruler of Abu Dhabi after their uncle, Saqr bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His mother was Sheikha Salama bint Butti. She extracted a promise from her sons not to use violence against each other, a promise which they kept. Sheikh Zayed was named after his grandfather, Sheikh Zayed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan (“Zayed the Great”), who ruled the emirate from 1855 to 1909. At the time of Sheikh Zayed’s birth, the sheikhdom of Abu Dhabi was one of seven Trucial States along the lower coast of the Persian Gulf. He also showed interest in falconry.

It is normally held that he was born at Qasr al-Hosn in Abu Dhabi, with some sources stating that he was born in Al Ain, particularly at Sultan Bin Zayed Fort on the edge of Al Ain Oasis. He is at least known to have moved from Abu Dhabi to Al Ain in 1927, after the death of his father. As Zayed was growing up in Al-Ain, there were no modern schools anywhere along the coast. He only received a basic instruction in the principles of Islam, and lived in the desert with Bedouin tribesmen, familiarising himself with the life of the people, their traditional skills and their ability to survive under the harsh climatic conditions.

Zayed was appointed the governor of the Eastern Region of Abu Dhabi in 1946, and was based in the Muwaiji fort in Al Ain. At this time, the area was poor and prone to outbreaks of disease. When parties from Petroleum Development (Trucial Coast) began exploring for oil in the area, Zayed assisted them.

In 1952, a small Saudi Arabian force led by Turki bin Abdullah Al-Otaishan occupied the village of Hamasa in the Buraimi Oasis (the ‘Buraimi Dispute‘). Zayed was prominent in his opposition to Saudi territorial claims and reportedly rejected a bribe of about £30 million to allow Aramco to explore for oil in the disputed territory. As part of this dispute, Zayed and his brother Hazza attended the Buraimi arbitration tribunal in Geneva in September 1955 and gave evidence to tribunal members. When the tribunal was abandoned amid allegations of Saudi bribery, the British initiated the reoccupation of the Buraimi Oasis through a local military force, the Trucial Oman Levies. A period of stability followed during which Zayed helped to develop the region and took a particular interest in the restoration of the falaj system, a network of water channels which kept the plantations of the Buraimi Oasis irrigated and fertile.

The discovery of oil in 1958, and the start of oil exports in 1962, led to frustration among members of the ruling family about the lack of progress under Sheikh Shakhbut’s rule. On 6 August 1966, Shakhbut was deposed in a bloodless palace coup. The move to replace Shakhbut with Zayed had the unanimous backing of the Al Nahyan family. The news was conveyed to Shakhbut by British Acting Resident Glen Balfour-Paul who added the support of the British to the consensus of the family. Shakhbut finally accepted the decision and, with the Trucial Oman Scouts providing safe transport, left for Bahrain. He subsequently lived in Korramshahr, Iran before returning to live in Buraimi.

In the late 1960s, Zayed hired Katsuhiko Takahashi, a Japanese architect, to design and plan the city.

Between 8–11 January 1968, the UK’s Foreign Office Minister Goronwy Roberts visited the Trucial States and announced to its shocked rulers that the United Kingdom would abrogate its treaties with them and intended to withdraw from the area. Goronwy was the Labour MP for Caernarvonshire, 5 July 1945-23 February 1950 and Caernarfon, 23 February 1950-28 February 1974. Goronwy, the son of a Presbytarian Minister, grew up in Bethesda like Dafydd, studied at UCNW, taught at Swansea University  and couldn’t have been more of a Gang member if he had tried. Goronwy Roberts was a Member of the Court of Governors of the National Library of Wales, the National Museum of Wales and the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth (now Aberystwyth University). Goronwy was Chairman of the Welsh publishing house, Hughes a’i fab, 1955-59. Image result for mandy rice davies christine keelerAfter he lost his seat to Dafydd Wigley, Goronwy went to the Lords and fought the Gang’s corner from there, most helpfully as Deputy Leader of the Lords, 1975-79. See ‘Slaves, Perfect Slaves’.

In a seminal meeting on 18 February 1968 at a desert highland on the border between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Zayed and Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum of Dubai shook hands on the principle of founding a Federation and attempting to invite other trucial rulers to join in order that a viable nation be formed in the wake of the British withdrawal.

In 1971, after occasionally difficult negotiations with the other six rulers of the Trucial States, the United Arab Emirates was formed. Zayed was appointed to the presidency of the UAE in 1971 and was reappointed on four more occasions: 1976, 1981, 1986, and 1991.

In 1974, Zayed settled the outstanding border dispute with Saudi Arabia by the Treaty of Jeddah by which Saudi Arabia received the output of the Shaybah oilfield and access to the lower Persian Gulf in return for recognising the UAE.

Sheikh Zayed was determined to unite the Emirates into federation. His calls for cooperation extended across the Persian Gulf to Iran. He advocated dialogue as the means to settle the row with Tehran over three strategic Persian Gulf islands which Iran seized from the (future) UAE Emirate of Sharjah in 1971. The islands remain in Iranian hands, despite over three decades of UAE diplomatic initiatives.

The attitude of Zayed towards his neighbours can best be seen in his position regarding the “Umm al Zamul” dispute (1964), when he expressed a genuine wish that his brother Sheikh Shakhbut would accept “the Sultan’s proposal for a neutral zone”. He said in that regard: “… it was ridiculous to squabble over a [water] well so bitter that few bedouin could stomach its waters, or to split hairs over a tiny area of barren, almost totally unfrequented desert. And even if there happened to be oil in the area, Abu Dhabi had so much already that she could well afford to spare some for her less fortunate neighbours”.

Furthermore, during the negotiations between Abu Dhabi and Dubai that resulted in forming the Abu Dhabi — Dubai Union (which preceded the formation of the United Arab Emirates), Sheikh Zayed was extremely generous with the Sheikh Rashid of Dubai. Kemal Hamza, Sheikh Rashid’s envoy to the meeting between Sheikh Zayed and Sheikh Rashid in Sumeih remarked that “Zayed was extremely ‘karim’ (generous) throughout the negotiations and seemed prepared to give Rashid whatever he wanted”. This amounted to Zayed giving Rashid “oil rights in the sea-bed that might be worth milions a year” even at the risk of criticism “at home for giving so much…” It also gave rise to comments that such concessions constituted “an alienation of territory by Abu Dhabi”. But the future course of events proved, none of these arguments stood the test of judgment in light of the much higher goal that Sheikh Zayed had in mind, and which in the ultimate analysis amply justified the sacrifices incurred by him. Such concessions are rare in the records of history and news of this generosity travelled far and wide.

He was considered a relatively liberal ruler, and permitted private media. However, they were expected to practice self-censorship and avoid criticism of Zayed or the ruling families. Freedom of worship was permitted, and to a certain extent allowances were made for expatriate cultures, but this did not always sit comfortably in the eyes of the wider Arab world with Zayed’s role as a Muslim head of state.

Zayed did not shy away from controversy when it came to expressing his opinions on current events in the Arab world. Troubled by the suffering of Iraqi civilians, he took the lead in calling for the lifting of economic sanctions on Iraq imposed by the United Nations in the aftermath of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990, despite Kuwaiti displeasure and opposition.

Zayed was one of the wealthiest men in the world. A Forbes estimate put his fortune at around US$20 billion in 2004. The source of this wealth was almost exclusively due to the immense oil wealth of Abu Dhabi and the Emirates, which sit on a pool of a tenth of the world’s proven oil reserves. In 1988, he purchased, for £5m, Tittenhurst Park at Sunninghill, Berkshire as his English home.

At the time the British withdrew from the Persian Gulf in 1971, Zayed oversaw the establishment of the Abu Dhabi Fund for Arab Economic Development; some of its oil riches were channeled to some forty less fortunate Islamic nations in Asia and Africa during the decades that followed.

Using the country’s enormous oil revenues, Zayed built institutions such as hospitals, schools and universities and made it possible for UAE citizens to enjoy free access to them. He was also known for making donations to the tune of millions [pounds sterling] for worthy causes around the Arab World as well as in the neighbouring countries and in the world at large.

When asked by The New York Times in April 1997 why there is no elected legislature, Zayed replied,

Why should we abandon a system that satisfies our people in order to introduce a system that seems to engender dissent and confrontation? Our system of government is based upon our religion and that is what our people want. Should they seek alternatives, we are ready to listen to them.

We have always said that our people should voice their demands openly. We are all in the same boat, and they are both the captain and the crew. Our doors are open for any opinion to be expressed, and this well known by all our citizens. It is our deep conviction that Allah has created people free, and has prescribed that each individual must enjoy freedom of choice. No one should act as if they own others.

Those in the position of leadership should deal with their subjects with compassion and understanding, because this is the duty enjoined upon them by Allah, who enjoins upon us to treat all living creatures with dignity. How can there be anything less for mankind, created as Allah’s successors on earth? Our system of government does not derive its authority from man, but is enshrined in our religion and is based on Allah’s Book, the Quran. What need have we of what others have conjured up? Its teachings are eternal and complete, while the systems conjured up by man are transitory and incomplete.

Land was also often distributed gratis. However, while this policy benefited many landless families, enormously wealthy clans and individuals were given free land grants in proportion to their status and influence with the royal family. His majlis (a traditional Arab consultation council) was open to the public. He allowed non-Muslim religious buildings, such as churches and a temple, to be built. Zayed was also in favour of certain rights for women, such as access to education and women’s labour-rights, within traditional parameters. His views regarding women’s rights were considerably more liberal than his counterparts in the GCC nations.

After floods ravaged Yemen’s Ma’rib Governorate in 1982, Zayed financed the construction of the current dam of Ma’rib in 1984. This was to replace the historical one that was damaged in antiquity, and support the country’s agriculture and economy. The area of Ma’rib is reportedly from where his ancestors migrated to what is now the UAE.

Controversy over the opinions of the Zayed Centre caused the Harvard Divinity School to return Sheikh Zayed’s $2.5 million gift to the institution in 2000 as “tainted money.” Former United States President Jimmy Carter accepted the Zayed International Prize for the Environment in 2001. The award included a monetary prize of $500,000 from the Zayed Centre, and Carter stated in his acceptance speech that the award carried extra significance to him, since it was named after his personal friend.

There was similar controversy when the LSE accepted a large donation by the Zayed Centre, to build a new lecture theatre in the New Academic Building in 2008. Despite student protests, the gift was accepted with the Sheik Zayed Theatre being the second largest lecture hall on the campus.

I attended a public lecture given by radical sociologist Loic Wacquant in that lecture theatre and the audience were commenting on the irony of the LSE inviting Loic and booking that particular lecture theatre in which to hold the lecture.Image result for lse images

Harvard’s equivocation, the Carter controversy, and the engendering negative publicity, prompted Sheikh Zayed to shut down the centre in August 2003, stating that the Zayed Centre “had engaged in a discourse that starkly contradicted the principles of interfaith tolerance.”

On 2 November 2004, Zayed died at the age of 86. He was buried in the courtyard of the new Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi. His eldest son, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, took an increasing role in government beginning in the 1980s. Directly after his father’s death, he became the Ruler of Abu Dhabi, and was ratified as the President of the United Arab Emirates by his fellow rulers in the Supreme Council.

Previous posts discussed my landlords when I lived at Llandegfan, 1983-86, who worked in the UAE. Gwilym Parry-Jones had been a lecturer at UCNW but then went to the UAE to work at the University of Petroleum and Minerals. His wife Jean had previously worked at Bangor Technical College, which was run by the Gang. Gwilym had grown up in Anglesey and Jean’s parents had been farmers from Yorkshire. After I began this blog I was told that the Parry-Jones’s property developing business really hit success after the Gang came after me; Gwen, the Parry-Jones’s daughter rose to the top of the British Nuclear Power Industry, becoming a Role Model for Women and Gwen’s younger brother is now a Prof at Manchester Medical School. 
A great many British healthcare staff worked in the Middle East, often in senior positions with regard to developing health services. Dame Kathleen Raven, Deputy Chief Nursing Officer, Ministry of Health (1957–58), Chief Nursing Officer, DHSS (1958–72) began her career as a Bart’s Angel – Kathleen’s brother was a surgeon who trained at Bart’s and Kathleen, in mid-life, married John Thornton Ingram, the Prof of Dermatology at Durham University – and found that she was very soon elevated to the Highest Office at Gov’t level after her stint as Matron of Leeds General Infirmary, 1949-57, while Savile was building his empire there and soon after Bertrand Russell found himself strangely drawn to living near Cwm Croesor. Kathleen was not only a good pal of Gwynne and Dafydd but the amount of criminality and patient harm she concealed was impressive, even for a Gov’t Chief Nursing Officer. In that role, Kathleen became a pal of Asa Briggs. Kathleen had certainly entered into the spirit of things in Leeds; as Matron she pioneered Beau Parlours, ‘comfortable rooms where a nurse could entertain her gentleman friends’.See the source image
Upon her retirement as Chief Nursing Officer in 1972, Dame Kathleen’s husband died and she subsequently went international and among other things became Chief Nursing Adviser to the Allied Medical Group, which involved her with hospitals in Iran, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Kathleen was raised in the Lake District among an Arty Crowd; one of her grandmother’s friends was the painter John Ruskin. Dame Kathleen died in the 1999 rush, specifically on 19 April.
Harley Street of course has close links with the Middle East, in as much as so many of the patients are from that region.
Although so many British with NHS experience find work in the Middle East and are valued, there is a fraught and complex relationship. Healthcare staff like much about life in the Middle East as well as the huge salaries, but there is an odd double standard in which the debauchery of Brits working out there often exceeds anything that the London hospitals can conjure up which is extreme itself, yet the revellers know that if they are caught red-handed as it were, the consequences can be very serious. See previous posts for discussion of the 1978 death in Saudi of Leeds Angel Helen Smith, who her dad, retired Leeds copper Mr Ron Smith’s always maintained was a murder, concealed by the British authorities. It is very likely that Ron Smith was right; Helen was attending a rather excessive party held by a British surgeon and his wife and unbelievably Helen was not the only person to die at the party. Everyone involved in the investigation back in Britain were of the Gang or their associates. No way was the truth about Helen’s death ever going to be admitted. The only surprise is that Ron Smith ever thought that there would not be a massive cover-up; he was a Yorkshire copper who worked and lived in Savile Central, as had Helen before she left to work in Saudi.
 Keith Hill who succeeded William Shelton as MP for Streatham in 1992:Keith Hill MP (cropped).jpgTrevor Keith Hill (born 28 July 1943, Leicester) served in a variety of Gov’t roles as a Whip and a junior Minister. Hill was Labour MP for Streatham, from the 1992 General Election until he stood down in 2010.

Hill was educated at City Boys’ Grammar School in Leicester, from where he won a scholarship to Corpus Christi College, Oxford. He completed a Diploma in Education at University College of Wales, Aberystwyth. Hill was then a politics lecturer, firstly in the University of Leicester and at the University of Strathclyde from 1969–1973, both universities run by senior Gang associates. Hill worked as a research officer for the Labour Party’s International Department from 1974–1976 before becoming a political officer for the National Union of Railwaymen, subsequently amalgamated into the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT). In the 1979 General Election Hill stood unsuccessfully as Labour candidate in Blaby.

In the 1992 General Election, Hill outperformed Labour’s national performance by being the first Labour MP elected for the Streatham constituency. Hill defeated the incumbent Tory MP Sir William Shelton by a convincing margin. This partly reflected changing demographics in the constituency, See the source imagewhich includes a large swathe of Brixton.

Following Keith Hill’s election as an MP, he served on the Select Committee for Transport, 1992-97. His first Gov’t appointment was as PPS to Hilary Armstrong in 1997. Baroness Hilary, a member of Miranda’s inner circle, inherited her County Durham seat from her dad Ernest Armstrong. Ernest concealed the big ring in the North East that worked in partnership with Dafydd and Gwynne, both in Ernest’s capacity as a Sunderland Borough Councillor – Ernest, a former Headmaster in a Leeds school was Chair of the Sunderland Education Committee – and as an MP. When Ernest was doing that, two of the abusers in Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead whom Ernest protected were Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth, who in 1973 relocated to Bryn Estyn and were the chief architects on the ground re expanding the shagfest at Bryn Estyn.

Hill became an Assistant Government Whip Image result for frankie goes to hollywood whips imagesfrom 1998 to 1999, while Ronnie Waterhouse wrote the first draft of his Report.

Keith Hill’s Ministerial career started when he was appointed as Parliamentary Under Secretary for Transport (as well as Minister for London) at the then Dept of Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR) in 1999. During his time at DETR, Hill was responsible for local transport and transport in London. Prezza was something to do with the DETR. Prezza originated in north Wales and was a student at Ruskin College, Oxford, while Matt Arnold was a tutor there and Peter Howarth was Arnold’s tutor. Prezza was President of the Ruskin Students Union, he won’t have missed Arnold and Howarth’s presence. The bladder on a stick subsequently won the nomination as the Labour candidate for the safe seat of Hull, which Prezza represented for decades, although Prezza can’t string a coherent sentence together and didn’t have much credibility re Hull. But Prezza knew about the Yorkshire/North East/Wales ring and Hull was on the location of that ring.

As Minister for London, Keith Hill was closely involved in preparing the way for London mayoral elections.

In the Ministerial appointments following the 2001 election, Keith Hill moved to the position of Deputy Chief Whip. In a 13 June 2003 reshuffle, Hill was promoted to Minister of State rank and joined the Privy Council. He served as Minister for Housing and Planning at the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister until the 2005 General Election. During this period Hill had lead responsibility for housing, planning, the Thames Gateway, urban policy and liveability issues and was Minister for London and the Dome. In the reshuffle following the 2005 General Election, Keith Hill was appointed PPS to the PM Miranda. He returned to the backbenches when Gordon became PM in June 2007.

Since leaving Parliament, Keith Hill has become the Chair of Lambeth Living, an ALMO (arm’s length management organisation) which administers most of Lambeth Council’s social housing stock.

In 2012 Keith Hill was appointed as the independent regulator for the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA) new self-regulatory regime. ARMA is a trade association for firms that manage private residential leasehold blocks of flats in England & Wales and Hill’s appointment marks the first time that managing agents have been subject to independent regulation.

Keith Hill was confirmed by Hammersmith & Fulham Council in February 2015 as Chair of the Residents’ Commission on Council Housing.

Now married, Hill once shared a flat with actor/comedian Eddie Izzard. Eddie was a neighbour to Madam Cyn’s brothel…See the source image

Nicholas Soames popped up on Radio 4 very recently banging on about a possible constitutional crisis, which reminded me that this dreadful old git still exists. Fatty Soames is best known for being the grandson of Churchill and a close friend of Carlo, as well as the most offensive man in the Commons.

Fatty is a ‘Private Eye’ favourite, they’re nearly as fond of Fatty as they used to be of Sir Jams Fishpaste.

Sir Arthur Nicholas Winston Soames (born 12 February 1948), sometimes known as Nick Soames, served as the Tory MP for Crawley, 1983-97; since 1997 Fatty has been the MP for Mid-Sussex.

Fatty was Minister of State for the Armed Forces, 20 July 1994-2 May 1997, in John Major’s Gov’t. During that time, Fatty’s mate Carlo, in his capacity as Chancellor of UCNW, was presiding over the Gwerin’s en masse attack on senior sociologist Graham Day and sociologist Nerys Patterson, after Graham and Nerys dared spill the Gang’s pints. See eg. ‘Badlands’. The real problem that the Gang had was the trial of Peter Howarth for the sexual abuse of boys in care in north Wales, Patient F and I refusing to shut up about Dafydd sexually exploiting patients, Brown providing yet more evidence of Dafydd trying to bribe me into withdrawing my complaint, the Jillings investigation etc.

Lord David Treisman was General Secretary of the AUT at the time; the AUT represented some of the most badly behaved members of the Gang employed at UNCW. At the time, one of the AUT reps at UCNW was the son of a local Top Doctor who had worked with Dafydd and Gwynne and was of the Gang. Early in his career, David Treisman worked as a researcher at the Institute of Psychiatry at the Maudsley, in the Addiction Unit. The Maudsley was run entirely by Dafydd’s mates at that time and the chaos and Class A drug dealing that passed for Dafydd’s ‘detox treatment’ in north Wales (that was reaching impressive heights when the Gang declared war on Graham Day, as discussed in ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’) had been learned by Dafydd at the knee of the people responsible for the Addiction Unit at the Institute of Psychiatry.

Treisman, once a Maoist and a member of the Communist Party, later achieved greatness in the Labour Party, serving as General Secretary, 24 July 2001-16 Dec 2003, where a significant part of his job was to maintain the support of the trade unions who had become disillusioned with Miranda’s Gov’t.

Treisman’s parents were of Eastern European Jewish origin and active Communists. Triesman was educated at the Stationers’ Company’s School in London, before going to Essex University and then King’s College, Cambridge.

After Triesman’s time working with Dafydd’s mates at the Maudsley, for a number of years, he was an academic at the South Bank Polytechnic (now London South Bank University) and held roles in NATFHE. A number of graduates of the South Bank Poly worked as social workers in north Wales and were named in the Waterhouse Report. Triesman became a full-time union official of NATFHE in 1984, holding the post of National Negotiating Secretary. He was General Secretary of the AUT, 1993-2001. In 2000, Treisman was elected a Visiting Fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge.

Treisman was created a life peer on 9 January 2004 taking the title Baron Triesman, of Tottenham in the London Borough of Haringey. 

Previous posts eg. ‘A Direct Threat From MIND In Haringey ‘ have discussed how, by 1986 when I lived in Harringay, the Borough was controlled by a ring working in collaboration with Dafydd.

In 2004, Treisman was appointed as a Lord in Waiting (Gov’t Whip in the Lords).

Under Miranda, Triesman served as a junior Minister in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, 10 May 2005-28 June 2007, with responsibility for relations with Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, Overseas Territories, the Commonwealth, UK visas, migration policy working directly with Miranda, consular policy, the British Council, the BBC World Service and the Chevening Scholarships Scheme. During this period, Treisman conducted negotiations with Iran to secure the release of a group of British naval and marine personnel who had been taken prisoner in the Upper Persian Gulf.

From 29 June 2007 until 5 Jan 2008, Treisman was moved to the newly created post of Parliamentary Under-Secretary of the Dept of Innovation, Universities and Skills. In this role, Treisman had responsibility for quality in HE, innovation and intellectual property and future planning. Then perhaps he can explain why chaos, rigging results and cooking the books was the order of the day throughout so much of the HE sector at the time, the extent of which is now becoming evident and erupting in serious problems throughout HE. Such as the recently launched police investigation into serious organised crime in Swansea University. I heard about that when you were busy upholding ‘quality’ in HE Treisman and the pleas of concerned staff as to what some of their senior colleagues were doing at Swansea were ignored.

Treisman served as the Overseer of the University Sector in Gordon’s Gov’t when Merfyn as VC of Bangor University was facing a co-ordinated campaign by the Gang, supported by No 10, to force him out of his post. One man who openly stated that what was needed was a really powerful person to get Merfyn out was the son of that Top Doc who in the 1990s was an AUT rep in Bangor when Triesman was Gen Sec of the AUT and the Gang were causing havoc. Merfyn’s wife Nerys found that the Top Docs at the Walton Centre could do nothing for her when Treisman worked with Mandy and Ron Evans’s daughter and Nerys subsequently died.

One of the running themes re Gang-inspired Chaos At Bangor:

Official portrait of Lord Triesman crop 2.jpg

By the time that Mandy was running the Dept of Business, Innovation and Skills in Oct 2008 – it might be remembered that the Dept was expanded to embrace so many matters that there was real public anger that the unelected Lord Mandy had been given nearly as much power as the PM – his right hand woman in terms of Civil Service mandarins was a lawyer who had grown up on Anglesey and gone to Ysgol David Hughes at Menai Bridge. Her dad was Ron Evans, the crooked lawyer who had been employed by Gwynedd County Council throughout the Paedophile Years and had been the man who kept that lot out of prison. I know this because Mandy’s aide’s mum, Ron’s wife, worked as a lecturer at Bangor University and told me that when the investigations had begun, Ron told everyone that what they had done was so serious and so inexcusable that none of them must ever admit it to any of it. Ron’s wife didn’t know that I had been one of the targets. I have in my possession stacks of documents written and signed by Ron, demonstrating perjury, conspiracy and the collusion of judges who were later promoted to the level of Lord Justice. Ron was also better at forging documents than his colleagues. See previous posts.

Ron Evans’s daughter loved working for Mandy, she thought that he was great. The only thing that Mandy hadn’t been able to arrange was good medical care for Ron when he developed cancer and suffered a nervous breakdown. He was left to rot just as an Enemy Of The Gang would have been.

Be afraid Mandy, be very afraid. The Top Docs are seriously out of control and if they think that you might blab in the future you too will find that There Is No More That They Can Do For You.

One Short-Sighted Twat:

Peter Mandelson.jpg

Lord Treisman served as Opposition (Labour) Lords Shadow Spokesperson for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, 2010-14.

Treisman is a member of the European Affairs External Affairs Select Committee. He is Chairman of the Design Commission. Treisman is Co-chairman of the All Party St Lucia Group and a member of the All Party China and Chinese in Britain Group.

Treisman is a Senior Visiting Fellow at Warwick University and a Visiting Fellow at the LSE. Triesman is a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society and the Royal Society of Arts (RSA). In 2015, he was awarded the Icebreaker Award by the Chinese Ambassador to the UK for services to Chinese-UK relations, including football.

Triesman is a member of the Henry Jackson Society‘s Political Council and a member of the European Leadership Network Board and Top Level Group.

A longtime fan of Spurs and Patron of the club’s charitable Foundation, Triesman became the first independent Chairman of the Football Association of in January 2008. He resigned in May 2010. Triesman was a Board member at Wembley National Stadium, the Premier League shareholders’ meeting, the Football Foundation and is a qualified senior football referee. In February 2011 Treisman testified before a Parliamentary Committee on the state of the administration of English football. He was heavily critical of the FA, saying it was shying away from governing the game. Treisman was especially damning of the FA’s administrative procedures and its working relationship with other football bodies, in particular the Premier League.

Did Treisman ever hear anything about the organised abuse of young football hopefuls which seems to have been such a problem or did Triesman not notice anything amiss, a la his time at the Maudsley where his colleagues, Dafydd’s mates, were running a trafficking ring and flogging Class A drugs to the patients whom they were Helping?

Triesman has been involved in business in real estate, banking, publishing and fine art. He has served on the boards and advisory boards of several companies including Chairing Victoria Management, the advisory board of UBS and Templewood Merchant Bank and some of its subsidiaries. He is an Executive Board member of the Salamanca Group and its subsidiaries, One Ocean Enterprises, Funding Affordable Homes (and its Housing Association).

Triesman resigned from the Labour group in the House of Lords in July 2019 in support of Little Nell’s traumas in the face of Jezza’s Anti-Semitism. Jezza must have been heart-broken seeing the old bastard go.

Triesman spent many years in a relationship with the writer and critic Michelene Wandor until they split up in the late 1990s. Michelene was known from 1963 to at least 1979 as Michelene Victor. Her parents were early 20th-century Russian Jewish émigrés. After attending Chingford Secondary Modern and High Schools, Wandor studied English at Newnham College, Cambridge, graduating in 1962. She also has Master’s degrees from Essex University and in Music from London University/Trinity College of Music, London.

Wandor has been active in the Women’s Liberation Movement since 1969 and edited its first collection of essays, The Body Politic, in 1972. Once a Feminist followed in 1990 and is an oral history of the previous 20 years. She was poetry editor of the original ‘Time Out’ magazine from 1971 to 1982. In 1982 her work was included in Touch Papers: Three Women Poets (with Michèle Roberts and Judith Kazantzis, published by Allison and Busby.

As with her more famous Newnham College peer Germaine Greer, you won’t hear a peep out of Michelene about the organised abuse of girls and women by the welfare state or the unlawful denial of NHS terminations to all women for any reason across the whole of north Wales until approx. 1990 (see post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’). Germaine has braved the Transgender Debate, as has Julie Bindel and in doing so they have withstood the sort of crap thrown at them that has caused so many less brave feminists to keep quiet. But neither Julie or Germaine have dared touch organised abuse and institutional corruption in the medico-legal system, although they do know about it. See previous posts…

Treisman married Lucy Hooberman, a former BBC executive, in 2006 and has a daughter.

Lucy can be found on the website of Warwick University:

Lucy Hooberman | Professor of Digital Media and Innovation

Prior to joining the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) at the University of Warwick, Lucy worked at the BBC for fifteen years in a variety of roles within Documentary, Drama, Independent Commissioning and since 2000 in an Interdisciplinary Lab focusing on innovation and creativity set up by John Birt to explore what the advent of the world wide web would mean for the BBC in terms of policy, working practise, programme making and content as well as strategy. This future-focused job took Lucy away from the practise and management of programme making and editorial decision making to a more strategic focus. The unit brought horizon scanning, scenario planning and design thinking to the BBC, alongside a practise of prototyping , testing and Imagineering!

Lucy joined the BBC in 1993 from a career in Independent Producing, documentary and drama programme making for Channel Four television , the British Film Institute and Polydor Records. Her first love was the arts and she worked at the Arts Council and the Institute of Contemporary Arts to produce talks and seminars for the public to come face to face with writers, designers, media workers and many more.

She is currently on the Board of Fevered Sleep, a performance and arts production company, a member of BAFTA and the Royal Society of Arts.

 

Fatty Soames was Minister of State for the Armed Forces throughout and remained in post throughout the first few months of the Waterhouse Inquiry.

Sir William Mars-Jones, one of the biggest umbrellas enjoyed by Gwynne and Dafydd et al who was highly effective in both London legal circles and on the ground in north Wales, the Mars-Jones’s being one of the farming families who ran Denbighshire – Mars-Jones was Ronnie Waterhouse’s pupil master and lifelong friend (see previous posts) and virtually a resident of the Garrick – stood down as President of UCNW in 1994 and was replaced by the Windbag’s mate Lord Cledwyn. Professor Eric Sunderland, a well-camouflaged friend of the Gang of old, stood down as Principal/VC of UCNW in the same year and was replaced by Prof Roy Evans, another paedophiles’ friend but one who didn’t emerge with as spotless a reputation as Eric did.

John Smith died on 12 May 1994 and Miranda became Leader of the Labour Party on 21 July 1994.

Fatty Soames was appointed Minister of State for the Armed Forces on 20 July 1994.

See the source image

On 9 June Matt Arnold, the former Head of Bryn Estyn, died from an ‘unspecified blood infection’. On 13 June 1994, Arnold’s long-time colleague and friend Peter Howarth faced the first day of his trial Chester Crown Court for the sexual abuse of boys in care in north Wales. On 8 July 1994 Howarth was found guilty and sentenced to 10 years inside.

Prior to relocating to Bryn Estyn in 1973, Arnold and Howarth had worked together at Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead, on the turf of the big ring in the North East, which worked in partnership with Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang. The organised abuse at Axwell Park had been concealed in the 1960s by Ernest Armstrong, a Sunderland Borough Councillor and Chair of the Education Committee who then served as the Labour MP for Durham North West, 1964-87. Ernest had when younger trained as a teacher at the City of Leeds Teacher Training College and subsequently become a Headmaster. Ernest was the helpful soul who assisted Miranda in finding that safe Labour seat of Sedgefield. Ernest was succeeded in his own seat by his daughter Hilary – later Baroness Hilary – Armstrong, who became one of Miranda’s inner circle. See post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’.

Miranda was elected to the Commons in the same General Election as Fatty, June 1983. At the time, I had been clobbered badly with depression and had been coerced into seeing Dr D.G.E. Wood by my tutor Adrian Bell who was mates with Wood as discussed in previous posts. Wood diagnosed serious depression but just would not provide meaningful help or advice to me or indeed Brown when Brown asked how he could best help. Wood stressed that Pills were not the answer, that a case like this needed psychotherapy. Brown and I were OK with Not Trying Pills but Brown really did not want me near Top Docs of any sort. Wood worked hard at gaining Brown’s confidence and ended up sending me to Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist who was running a trafficking ring, but not until early in 1984.

Wood really did nothing else at all; he wouldn’t respond to my concerns re the death threats that Brown had been receiving from Jan 1983 when he was in his last few months at Aston University, yet Wood kept emphasising that I should carry on making appointments to see him. Neither would Wood help when a crazed teenager on a Manpower Service Commission training scheme hosted by UCNW moved into our house and caused havoc. I have since found out that Patricia Margaret Edwards aka Trishles was a security services plant. She was working as a trainee technician with Adrian Bell’s wife, Alison, who was a technician and Alison’s colleagues. See previous posts eg. ‘They Got On Their Bikes And Looked For Work’ and ‘He Was Looking At I In A Funny Way…’

Amidst the many members of the security services who interpreted their duty re upholding national security to wrecking the lives of my friends and I because of the proximity of Carlo, Thatch, Lord Snowdon etc to the Gang and the history of Gwynne and Dafydd with Churchill, Eden, Macmillan and indeed every other former PM, were some very close to north Wales and Bangor University in particular. Two such agents were Sir Charles Evans, Principal of UCNW, 1958-84 and Sir William Mars-Jones. Charles Evans was a Top Doc but was really famous for being the Deputy Leader of the first successful Everest expedition in 1953 – the Leader, John Hunt, was a senior security services officer who served as Commander of Sandhurst and advised on policing in N Ireland during the Troubles – and Mars-Jones was a High Court judge who’s key role in the security services was disguised by a Cunning Plan.

That Cunning Plan was Mars-Jones presiding over the ‘ABC trial’ in 1978, during which Mars-Jones made a great display of Not Letting The Security Services Get Away With This, ‘This’ being an ‘oppressive prosecution’ under the Official Secrets Act. The Attorney-General was forced to drop all charges against the defendants. Mars-Jones being a No Nonsense Judge Who Stood Up To The Security Services received widespread admiring media coverage and was flagged up in his obituaries after he died.

Interesting Facts: in 1978 Mr Thrope was charged with conspiracy and incitement to kill. The Gang had already been in pursuit of Mary Wynch, who had gone into hiding amidst much publicity and would be wrongfully arrested and illegally imprisoned imminently. In 1977, Mars-Jones had presided over the trial of a number of Met officers from the Obscene Publications Squad accused of corruption. As with all police corruption trials to date, the principle offenders were not on trial and remained in the police. The Gang had a very profitable line in porn, not merely Penthouse-style material, but kiddie porn, bestiality, anything that would sell; that is why the Gang’s victims were subjected to terrorism tactics. If kids had to be persuaded to be filmed having sex with animals, it might take some doing.

When the No Nonsense Judge Banged Up Those Bent Coppers, Carlo had the year previously become Chancellor of the University of Wales (which included UCNW) and George Thomas, friend and client of the Gang, had become Speaker of the Commons.

There really was a great deal at stake so the No Nonsense Judge swung into action.

As for the AG who buckled under Mars-Jones’s judicial majesty in 1978, that was Lord Samuel Silkin, Jim Callaghan’s AG. Silkin was a Labour lawyer from a famous family of Labour lawyers. His brother John at one point was presumed to be the next Labour Party Leader, another brother was a Civil Service mandarin and their dad Lord Lewis Silkin had also been a Labour MP and lawyer. Mars-Jones had stood as the Labour candidate for Denbigh in 1945 and was mates with Callaghan, who for years had been at the thick of the cover-ups re Dafydd and Gwynne.

The No Nonsense Judge died on 10 Jan 1999, as his close pal Ronnie Waterhouse was drafting the Waterhouse Report. Thus the world was reminded once more of Mars-Jones’s Independence, Honesty and Morality Based On His Methodist Upbringing On A Denbighshire Farm. The whole of his family were in the thick of a long-standing paedophile ring (see previous posts) but that was not mentioned. Mars-Jones was well-known in London, where he was a leading light in the Garrick, President of the London Welsh Trust, 1988-94 (that spanned the major police investigation in north Wales) and a senior member of Gray’s Inn. Gray’s Inn also hosted Michael Mansfield and St Helena Kennedy, the UK’s most famous Radical Barrister and  the UK’s most famous Wimmin’s Champ of a Barrister. Who both knew Cherie Booth, a Radical Human Rights Feminist Barrister who’s husband became Leader of the Labour Party in 1994. I wrote to Michael Mansfield about the Gang towards the end of 1993 and received a one-sentence reply.

Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council who, along with his family, played a role in the ring as major as that of Mars-Jones, died on 4 May 1999. Ioan’s obituaries stressed this intellectual public servant’s humble roots in Snowdonia that ensured his sympathies were always with the common man.

The phrase ‘key members of a vicious local elite who had ruined north Wales and enslaved its population’ did not appear anywhere in the obits of Sir William and Ioan.

By early 1983, it was too dangerous for Brown to stay in Birmingham, so he spent as much time as he could at moved our house on Anglesey – we lived on the outskirts of the same village as Ron Evans who’s daughter worked for Mandy when she grew up – and moved in on a full-time basis as soon as he’d finished his finals in May 1983.

Then keep away from the Top Docs who live in Ron Evans’s village who send their kids to the same school as Ron sends his daughter because they’re running a trafficking gang and they’re unlawfully denying women NHS terminations and forcing them to relinquish their babies for adoption…

Ron’s village, Llandegfan, was the favoured habitat for Top Docs and NHS staff, as well as Bangor University staff. D.G.E. Wood lived there, as did Adrian Bell, as did Prof Greig-Smith (one of Bell’s colleagues and a friend of Douglas Hurd’s uncle the Cambridge botanist Edred Corner), as did Bob Whitbread, Chris Marshall, Malcolm Cherrett, John Gaunt and scores of other Bangor academics who knew what D.G.E. Wood and Gwynne Williams were up to in the Student Health Centre. Two NHS administrators who were lying to patients and cooking the books lived in the house next to ours; the Top Docs bit them on the bum when their not very capable teenaged daughter became pregnant and was refused a termination and all support.

Terry Maxwell, the Bastard at the top of the tree responsible for so much blood and guts as the Clinical Director of Ysbyty Gwynedd, (Maxwell was a pal of Dafydd’s who was doing Dafyddesque corrupt deals with Liverpool Medical School as described in previous posts – Maxwell’s daughter Sonia is now a GP in Llanberis) lived at Llandegfan; Melanie Abas who later used her knowledge of the Gang to bag herself a job as a consultant psych and a Chair at the Maudsley (see previous posts) grew up in Llandegfan; one of the corrupt police officers based at Bangor Police Station who knew about the ring lived at Llandegfan; a middle-class lady with a serious drink problem who was obviously under attack from the Gang lived at Llandegfan and ended up sharing her house with a group of grossly sexually and financially exploitative local young men who were highly abusive to her by any standards. In 1994 or thereabouts, this lady left Llandegfan for a new life in Bristol, D.G.E. Wood’s home town. She lived very close to Wood’s house in Llandegfan and he seemed to be behind her stigmatisation and marginalisation. Wood also fanned the flames of the fire of another one of his neighbours, a ‘Schizophrenic’ man who had passed through Dafydd’s hands in Denbigh and who’s cousin died in a car crash…

All human life was in Llandegfan. As of course was the home of 1984 Child Singing Sensation Aled Jones. Aled was discovered and robustly promoted by members of the Gang (see previous posts) when the Gang were in need of good PR because Brown and I had begun to rumble them. We had also made friends with two local teenagers who were at Ysgol David Hughes with Aled who told us a few things about what was happening to some of the less fortunate kids at that school who never received the sort of publicity that Aled and his friends did. Those two girls spent time in our house chatting and socialising. The house was bugged by MI5 who will have heard everything that the girls told us: the names of the teachers and local abusers, the names of the kids, the venues of the crimes, the whole lot. We didn’t understand that it was all part of an international ring, but we certainly found out about some very unpleasant local incidents and individuals.

Tony and Sadie Francis retired to Llandegfan!

On the outskirts of Llandegfan was the Gazelle Hotel, which was owned and managed by Barbara and Ken Moulton from Cheshire.

Barbara had been a porn queen and was er, yes, involved with the ring… Barbara’s ex-husband was a senior detective from Manchester who was still on good terms with Barbara and used to regularly stay over at the Gazelle. The Gazelle’s customers were the Top Docs and their pals from across the region, it was their congregating place.

Ken Moulton became an alcoholic, was given Ron Evans Standards Of Care, lost the pub at Malltraeth that he ran after Barbara had left him for a wealthy builder from Cheshire and I was told ended up in a rather sorry state. When Ken ran the Gazelle, he was the chef. Ken used to enjoy exposing himself to the female staff. Some of whom were still schoolgirls at Ysgol David Hughes earning pocket money. Terry Maxwell’s daughter, Sonia’s sister, worked as a waitress at the Gazelle when Ken was busy.

Ken and Barbara routinely short-changed all staff on a regular basis and after staff had handed in their notice, their final pay packet would be up to anything short of £50. Any attempt to rectify the situation would end in a screaming row and if one persisted, physical violence.

Only one member of staff at the Gazelle ever extracted their dosh from Ken and Barbara after their last day at work. Terry Maxwell’s daughter. Maxwell sent them a solicitor’s letter – over a teenager’s summer job – and they paid up immediately. Maxwell was known for sending solicitor’s letters demanding money. He sent them to patients. Maxwell was an NHS heart and lung Doc – THE  main heart and lung ‘specialist’ for north Wales, but took on much private work. Maxwell didn’t always clarify to elderly confused patients that if they returned as private patients, they would be billed a lot of money. One old lady on Anglesey refused to pay. Maxwell threatened her with Court action and she was terrified. Her disgusted family clubbed together to pay Maxwell’s sizeable bill; they maintained that she had not realised that she had been transferred onto Maxwell’s list of private patients. How did I know about this? Because the old lady was a relative of Liz Stables, the Angel in the Student Health Centre, who was facilitating the ring with Gwynne and Wood and who was a mate of Dafydd’s.

Slaves, Perfect Slaves:

In the mid-1990s, another heart and lung consultant arrived at Ysbyty Gwynedd, Dr David Thomas. He was very popular and there were no Maxwell-like complaints about Dr Thomas. Dr Thomas became the centre of a media show after he attempted suicide by driving his car off of a mountain side. He survived but was sectioned, in the Hergest Unit. Everyone was told who he was – ‘that heart doctor’ – and confidential details re Dr Thomas were leaked to such a degree that they constituted a Niagra Falls of a leak.

It transpired that Dr Thomas had attempted suicide after Terry Maxwell had discovered that Dr Thomas had lied about a professional qualification in order to bag his consultant’s job. Dr Thomas had been so terrorised by Maxwell that he had tried to kill himself.

Dr Thomas should not have lied, but the reason why he got away with it was that the NHS in north Wales and the GMC were not checking Top Docs’ qualifications. Ysbyty Gwynedd was crawling with Top Docs who’s qualifications were insufficient, under GMC rules, for their positions. There were at least two consultants in the Hergest Unit in that category, one being Sadie Francis. Who was the Doc who sectioned Dr Thomas, on a ward in the hospital in which he worked and Shared Information about him with so many.

Dr Thomas’s patients robustly supported him and held demos outside YG, maintaining that he was fantastic, they loved him, the best heart doc that they had ever had. Much better than that other one, the rude bully who lied and cheated and sent patients’ lawyers letters…

The NHS Trust held a press conference at which the Chair and Chief Exec stated that they wouldn’t re-employ the lying bastard Dr Thomas no matter how much support he received. At the time, the Chair and CEO were encouraging perjury, conspiracy and forging evidence in attempts to have me imprisoned. There was also the swindle with BT, the ‘special arrangement’ that Patient F stumbled across…

John Mullen and Hefin Davies, Remember The Names!

See previous posts for the full story re Dr Thomas, Terry Maxwell and the corruption of John Mullen and Hefin Davies.

While this was going on in the NHS in Wales, against the backdrop of Matt Arnold dying and Peter Howarth being tried and imprisoned, the violent drunk who doubled up as a Tory politician in Wales, Rod Richards, served as a Health Minister. Rod was ex-Forces And Proud Of It and although some inaccuracies found their way into Rod’s CV, he did work for MI6. See post ‘He’s Looking At I In A Funny Way…’

What makes Rod’s role in the serious organised crime of Wales’s NHS in the 1990s particularly inexcusable is that Rod admitted that he knew, as did many others, that Peter Morrison was a child molester. Rod probably knew how Peter Morrison ended up dead in his Belgravia house when still in his 50s, four days after Bing Spear, the corrupt Home Office Drugs Branch Civil Service mandarin who was such a great friend to Dafydd, died in July 1995.

If I have time I shall investigate the circumstances towards the end of his political career in which Rod was cleared in Court after being charged with an assault on a young woman. She suffered injuries to her face and a broken arm after her encounter with Rod, so Rod Walking From The Court An Innocent Man is a bit of a puzzle.

Terry Maxwell, like Dafydd, was a graduate of Liverpool Medical School. Liverpool University was on such good terms with Maxwell that when his daughter Sonia applied via UCCA (or it may have been UCAS by then) to read medicine, Liverpool rang her up and made her an offer of I think one E at A level, ‘because they know her dad’. Liverpool had not been one of the medical schools to which Sonia had applied. That’s how good the jungle drums were in 1984. Sonia didn’t want to go to Liverpool at any point. She qualified in London, I think at UCL or the Middlesex.

In 1984, all UK medical schools were constantly stressing in media interviews that the days of Top Docs’ children receiving preferential treatment re the applications process were definitely over. In 1984 I met a woman on the medicine degree at Cardiff who openly told me that she had not met the basic criteria for entry on a number of levels but she was a friend of the Dean of the Medical School and was therefore offered a place. The friend of the Dean was a clinical psychologist in her 50s who needed a medical qualification for a particular role career-wise. I wish that I could remember her name, because all clinical psychologists in Wales were Of The Gang and the Welsh National School of Medicine/Cardiff University was the key facilitating institution in Wales. The Dean’s friend must have been lined up for a very senior essential job in Paedophilia Central, to have made fiddling a place on a four year degree (I seem to remember her telling me that she had only been let off one year of the medicine degree) for a woman who would be nearly 60 years old upon qualification worthwhile.

 

There were so many complaints and employment grievances re the Gazelle Hotel that by the late 1980s, the Job Centre in Bangor told Jobseekers not to take jobs there. So Ken and Barbara began advertising for staff in a catering college in Liverpool. Those students were captive because the jobs advertised in Liverpool were live-in jobs…

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

After one incident in which Ken and Barbara physically assaulted one of my housemates in front of a full restaurant causing some of the customers to walk out in solidarity with my housemate, D.G.E. Wood and Tony Francis documented the event as an example of my aggressive conduct and ‘failure to get on with other people’. Then the CAB in Bangor refused to give me legal advice as to how I could obtain the wages that Ken and Barbara owed me and had admitted to D.G.E. Wood that they owed me. I had no idea that Dafydd’s mistress Lucille was a senior manager of the CAB and packed the regional offices with her lackeys.

See previous posts for info on the Gazelle and the Moultons.

In 1985 Barbara and Ken acquired a boat and joined the Yachting Crowd of Anglesey. The Gazelle was located on the banks of the Menai Strait and provided the catering for the Regattas. Someone else who had his yacht moored off of Anglesey was Mike Williams, the Charge Nurse of Bryn Golau at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, who knew exactly what Dafydd was up to and witnessed Dafydd turning up at midnight to conduct a ward round – just with me – when I was in bed…

It’s The Low Paid Angels! Excuse me while I drive over to where my yacht is moored… As with all psych angels of his generation, Mike was allowed to draw his NHS pension at 55 yrs old what with psych nursing Involving More Stress than normal nursing. Most of the psych Angels in north Wales, who could bear no more at 55 after years of being battered senseless and driven mad by the Dangerous Nutters whom they Cared For, drew their pensions and continued working full time, usually as Consultants or Trainers, flogging their services to the NHS or private medical companies. At least two of the former Denbigh Angels have substantial property-letting businesses and one has a second home in Florida.

After the business of Trishles, when we lived in Llandegfan among the NHS Millionaires, we were then targeted by two other security services plants whom Brown met through the small ads in New Statesman, but of a rather different nature to Trishles. The first was Leslie Gore, a vicious git who worked as an alcohol counsellor at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, after having worked in the North East as a lecturer at Sunderland Poly and a as a psychotherapist. Gore was followed by Naomi Grenfeld, an Orthodox Jewish teacher who lived in Stoke Newington. Naomi had advertised herself in NS as a writer with ‘writer’s block’ and asked for tuition. Naomi it transpired was as mad as Trishles and Gore, a postgrad student at St Mary’s University College, Strawberry Hill, Twickenham, who had gained her first degree from that institution by paying other people to complete her coursework and she wanted Brown to do the same for her Masters…

In 2014, the institution that gave Naomi at least one degree on the basis of work completed by someone else – Brown discovered that Naomi’s mother knew this, as did at least one tutor at St Mary’s University College – acquired full university status and is now St Mary’s University, Twickenham. It describes itself as a ‘Roman Catholic university’.

See previous posts for our adventures with Trishles, Gore and Naomi.

Brown’s dad Col Keith Brown was a senior British Army officer throughout Fatty’s time as Minister of State in the MoD. Col Brown was found dead in the summer of 2001, the year after the Waterhouse Report was published. [Apologies for stating in some posts that Keith died during the Waterhouse Inquiry; there are so many dates to correlate on this blog that there are errors getting through now and then; I always correct them as soon as I realise.]

Col Brown was in the British Army for decades. He went to Sandhurst as a young man, either in the late 1950s or early 60s and remained in the Army ever since. Keith was unusual in that he spent many years in the TA and then transferred to the Regular Army but kept his rank. I think Keith transferred to the Regular Army from the TA when he was a Lt Col in the 1970s. Just to confuse matters further, Keith then transferred back to the TA once more when he was older.

Whatever the details, Keith was in one of the Signals Regiments for years and served as Deputy Lieutenant of Somerset during the early 1980s; thus Keith hobnobbed with those in the West Country whom Fatty and Brian knew. See eg. ‘He Was Looking At I In A Funny Way…’

Carlo’s sister the Princess Snap was Col in Chief of Brown’s dad’s regiment and both of Brown’s parents met Snap. Brenda had rewarded Col Brown with an OBE in return for organising the Bristol celebrations for Brenda’s Silver Jubilee. Col Brown received his OBE along with Cliff and used to stress that his own OBE was a military OBE, not the sort of OBE that Savile and Cliff bagged.

Fatty Soames was born 1948 in Croydon. Fatty’s mum was Mary Churchill, who made an entire career out of being Winston’s daughter. Fatty of course has maxed out on being Churchill’s grandson; if he wasn’t, no-one would ever tolerate him. I will discuss Fatty’s mum and his dad Christopher later in this post.

After attending St. Aubyns Preparatory School in Sussex, Fatty attended Eton. Later Fatty studied at Mons Officer Cadet School, was commissioned into the 11the Hussars on 5 August 1967, then served in West Germany and Britain with the 11th Hussars and later the Royal Hussars. Fatty was transferred to the Regular Army Reserve of Officers on 9 March 1970 before resigning his commission on 5 August 1975.

In 1970, Fatty was appointed Equerry to Carlo or ‘Brian’ if one is an Eye reader. Fatty has remained a close friend of Brian ever since, so the two of them go back a long way. Brian graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge in June 1970.

Fatty publicly criticised Diana during Charles and Di’s estrangement when it was finally admitted that the Thoroughly Modern Marriage which followed the Fairytale Wedding had become horribly sour. When Diana first accused Brian of adultery with Camilla, Fatty told the BBC that the accusation and Diana’s fear of being slandered by her husband’s courtiers stemmed merely from Diana’s mental illness and “the advanced stages of paranoia”. Brian later admitted his adultery and Fatty apologised.

Fatty, the point is that although Diana was deeply distressed, is it not true that the distress resulted from post-natal depression – Brenda’s response was to state that Di would just have to ‘buck up’ – and an eating disorder, that was so badly mismanaged by the Palace that one can only marvel? Paranoia didn’t come into it. Brian was indeed having an affair with Camilla; in turn Di had affairs with numerous people, including James Hewitt from Devon who, after his fling with Di, had an affair with a girl who had lived near me in Somerset and went to Chilton Trinity School with me. I’m not Shocked and Disgusted at the Ugandan discussions but the constant stream of lies about that toxic arranged marriage was ridiculous.

It later transpired that Brian’s courtiers did smear Diana, as did his friends, including Jonathan Dimbleby and Fatty.

Furthermore, the Palace’s initial idea of ‘help’ for Di was a ludicrous old psychiatrist who banged on about Di having serious Mental Problems as a result of her Defective Genes and even seemed to think that Di’s mum leaving Di’s dad when Di was a girl was evidence of those Defective Genes. Di’s mum was a Bolter! Di’s parents also consulted a Top Doc over Di’s mum’s inability to give birth to a male heir early in their marriage. That Top Doc didn’t tell Di’s parents that it was Di’s dad who was responsible for their two daughters; Johnny Spencer’s sperms carrying X chromosomes kept fertilising those ova of Di’s mum, rather than those carrying Ys. Fortunately Di’s brother Charles Spencer later came along. I wonder if the Top Doc told Di’s parents that Charles was the result of that Top Doc’s pricey Treatment?

The batty old psychiatrist who denounced Di’s Defective Genes almost certainly knew Dafydd and Gwynne; after all Dafydd and Gwynne were mates with other Royal Docs and their friends and relatives, including Royal Gynaecologist Sir William Gilliatt – who delivered Brian and Anne – and Sir William’s son Roger Gilliatt. See previous posts. After the insane old fool had only succeeded in making Di even more distressed, someone hit on the idea of employing Susie Orbach. Susie Orbach doesn’t speak the language of Dafydd and Gwynne et al but not only did Susie Orbach fail to resolve Diana’s unhappiness, after Susie Orbach had the good sense never to publicly breathe a word about her famous client Orbach’s career took off in an impressive way. Orbach did of course end up as a Prof at the LSE for 10 years and is a BBC regular. Orbach does know about the organised abuse discussed on this blog.

Susie’s father was the British Labour MP Maurice Orbach[1]. Maurice was educated at a technical college in Wales and then as an extramural student at New York University. Maurice was the MP for Willesden East, 1945-59 and then Stockport South, 1964-79. Stockport was on the site of the ring in Greater Manchester affiliated to the Gang and who concealed Gwynne and his lobotomising throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Those colluding included some of the biggest names in the British medical establishment who were based in Manchester eg. Lord Robert Platt and Sir Douglas Black. In terms of Posh Ladies In NHS Governance, Richard Crossman’s pal Dame Isobel Graham Bryce’s presence in Manchester, her husband was a surgeon in Manchester, until they relocated to Oxford in the 1960s was a great help to Gwynne and Dafydd.

Orbach was a lifelong member of Poale Zion (Great Britain). He was General Secretary of the Jewish Trades Advisory Council (“a Committee of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, aimed at countering anti-Semitism in business life” during World War II) from 1940 and remained its Secretary until his death in 1976. So Orbach would have worked closely with Greville Janner in that role…

In 1937 Maurice was elected to the London County Council representing St Pancras South West, an area of Camden colonised even then by  the Bloomsbury Group and their mates who were part of the organised abuse network in Camden as well as in the Cwm Croesor area, where they had their Summer Colony. Maurice representing that ward will have stood him in good stead when he was after a seat in the Commons. Which he secured in 1964, the year that Dafydd was appointed to a consultant’s post at Denbigh and the year in which Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate Kenneth Robinson became Harold Wilson’s Health Minister. Kenneth who had been the MP for St Pancras North since 1949 and who had previously been a Councillor for St Pancras and who had been educated at Oundle, Sir Clough’s old school.

Orbach was Chairman of Central Middlesex Group Hospital Management Committee. The Central Middlesex Hospital – as distinct from the Middlesex Hospital – in situated in the Willesden area and numbered among its senior Top Docs Sir Francis Avery Jones, a Welsh Top Doc who was mates with the Gang. See previous posts. Francis Avery Jones sat on the DHSS panel that dictated under which circumstances patients could demand access to their records. It was Francis who year after year stated that of course patients should always be given access to all information ‘unless it will cause them or another person harm’. I have numerous letters in my possession signed by the Gang telling me that I absolutely will never be given my records at any time under any circumstances because it had been decided that I and others would be at risk of harm if I was given access. Years later when my lawyer got those bastards in a corner in the High Court and I did receive copies, there were letters and memos written by Dafydd and Wood barking at everyone that I must NEVER be allowed access to my records. No rationale was provided, just the orders…

Francis Avery Jones may have done me (or rather the wider world) a favour in the long run. Because he was the deciding factor at the DHSS re access to records and a mate of the Gang, the Gang were so confident that I would never see those records that they wrote all sorts in them and added interesting documents as well, including copies of job applications made by me – one for a job with a colleague of Francis Avery Jones – copies of letters that I had written to people who told me that they knew how bad Dafydd was, I could always write to them if I needed to etc, newspaper cuttings featuring F and me, even reviews of F’s art exhibitions, letters that F and I had written to newspapers about matters including those unrelated to the NHS and the Gang, copies of academic papers that I had written, confidential information relating to other people, it was extraordinary.

The contents of my records also demonstrated that they were passed around to numerous people who should never have had access to them and at one point Alun Davies was keeping them in his house, as letter after letter was sent to me assuring me that my records were completely confidential and were only ever made available to Top Docs treating me…

One of Francis Avery Jones’s junior Docs was Jonathan Miller, before Jonathan became a Superstar, having gained a taste for that in Footlights. See previous posts. William Mars-Jones was a member of Footlights when he was at Cambridge. As was Graham Chapman – Chapman performed with Miller – who qualified as a Top Doc at Bart’s and spent his adult life sexually abusing teenagers ‘in plain sight’ a la Savile. Graham who spent much time in Snowdonia, being a keen climber and who was a close friend of one of the Top Tories who began using the Cottage Inn at Fiddington and other venues near Bridgwater for his socialising from the late 1980s… See eg. post ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’.

Maurice Orbach was active in the World Jewish Congress (WJC). In 1954, on behalf of both the WJC and Churchill, Maurice went to Cairo to help save the lives of Jews sentenced to death as part of the Lavon Affair. Later, Orbach said that Egypt’s President, Gamal Abdel Nasser, had agreed to spare their lives but then reneged to balance their deaths with members of Muslim Brotherhood.

Maurice’s son Laurence taught history at Columbia University, New York, before founding Quarto Publishing in London in 1976. He was Chairman and CEO of The Quarto Group, Inc.

Susie Orbach read women’s history at the School of Slavonic Studies, London University and then did a PhD in psychoanalysis at the City University of New York.

With Luise Eichenbaum, Orbach created the Women’s Therapy Centre in 1976 and the Women’s Therapy Centre Institute, a training institute in New York, in 1981. She has been a consultant for The World Bank, the NHS and Unilever, who were so generous to Prof Fergus Lowe of the School of Psychology at UCNW when he blackmailed them over Philip Lever aka Lord Leverhulme’s connections to Dafydd and Sir Peter Morrison. Susie Orbach was co-originator of the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty. That led to those photos of attractive but plump women – well plump by Diana’s standards – appearing in advertising campaigns to Give Wimmin Body Comfidence. I didn’t think that it would work either, but it did wonders for Dove’s sales figures.

Susie is also a member of the steering group for the Campaign for Body Confidence – it’s working so well isn’t it Susie! – co-founded by Lynne Featherstone and Jo Swinson in March 2010.

Orbach has been a Visiting Scholar at the New School for Social Research in New York and was Visiting Professor at the LSE for ten years. She was Chair of the Relational School in the UK. Orbach is a convener of Anybody, an organisation that campaigns for body diversity. Susie is a co-founder and Board member of Antidote, which works for emotional literacy. Orbach is also a Co-founder of Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility.

Orbach lectures and broadcasts extensively world-wide and has been profiled in numerous newspapers; the organs of the liberal-left love Susie.

Orbach has a clinical practice and sees both individuals and couples in London. Orbach’s relationship with Joseph Schwartz, the father of her two children, ended after more than 30 years.

According to writer Jeanette Winterson, now Susie’s wife, Orbach “calls herself post-heterosexual”.

While Diana was suffering from the eating disorder that Susie had bugger all effect on, Diana was wheeled out before audiences of Top Docs to talk about matters Health, to support charidees etc and in her speeches she made comments about her not suffering from an eating disorder. Her audiences knew that she was. Furthermore Di was called on to provide PR for many causes with which the Gang were closely connected. Di visited Broadmoor, after being invited by one Jimmy Savile – who doubled up as a marriage guidance counsellor for Brian and Diana as well as Princess Fergie and Andrew – and her visits to the AIDS ward of the Middlesex/UCL made heroes of the Top Docs treating those poor gays who had been abandoned by their families because of the Stigma. See previous posts.

The AIDS patients been abandoned because they were taken away from their families when young, sent to children’s homes in north Wales where they were abused and forced to work as rent boys from their mid-teens and even if they did try and get back together with their families, they had been driven completely mad anyway and were usually addicted to the drugs given to them by the Gang, as well as being rife with STDs. The Middlesex was Gwynne’s old alma mater – William Gilliatt worked there and taught Gwynne and Roger Gilliatt trained there, I think just after Gwynne – and the Heroes at the Middlesex knew exactly how those young men had become infected with HIV. So did the DHSS – under Norman Fowler – it was why the funding was made available to the Middlesex for their care. Meanwhile, up in north Wales children were still being abused and trafficked, including at Ty’r Felin, the children’s home in Bangor.

For details of the beneficiaries of AIDS-Caring dosh other than the Middlesex/UCL (the two institutions had merged by the time that the flagship AIDS ward had opened) after those in Gov’t realised that the kids who they knew were being sent to north Wales and forced into sex work were dying and some good PR was needed for Gwynne and Dafydd’s partners in crime in London, see eg. ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’.

Many of the Gwerin at Bangor University who Hated Graham Day were former north Wales social workers who had been responsible for the kids who were abused and trafficked eg. Dr Delyth Morris and Malcolm John; they had been given jobs at UCNW as social work tutors. Some of their students were named in the Waterhouse Report as the staff of the children’s homes under investigation. One of the social workers who was responsible for Ty’r Felin in the 1980s was Meri Huws aka the Crack of Doom. The Crack of Doom became a social work lecturer at Coleg Menai in Bangor, then at the Normal College in Bangor and after a brief stint in Dublin, the Crack returned to north Wales and was appointed Head of the Dept of Lifelong Learning by the by then VC of Bangor University, Prof Roy Evans. Meri had been a student at Aberystwyth University when Carlo spent that term there in 1968 learning Welsh. See previous posts eg. ‘On The Occasion Of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’.

See previous posts eg. ‘Local Accessories’, ‘Are You Local?’ and ‘People With Energy’ for further details of the incestuous idiocy that could only have been designed to ensure that the serious crime continued. Fatty Soames was in the Commons throughout and a Minister during much of it.

Perhaps Fatty knows why the son of one of the Top Docs who worked in Bangor during the 1950s and 60s, who knew Gwynne and Dafydd and was Of The Gang, used to maintain that Carlo was known to be ‘AC/DC’ when he was at Trinity College, Cambridge. This man was at Trinity College himself, later worked as an academic at UCNW and also proffered the opinion that Di’s death was not an accident.

When I heard about Carlo being AC/DC at Trinity, all I could think of was the Sylvie Krin ‘Eye’ serial ‘Heir Of Sorrows’ character Sir Alan Fitztightly, who runs Carlo’s baths, adds the Duchy Organic bath oils and scrubs Carlo’s back and makes reference to Backstairs Billy, the Queen Mum’s Loyal Retainer who after Backdoor Billy’s death from AIDS it was admitted had a taste for teenaged boys and was running a Vice Ring, as detailed in previous posts.

By Sylvie Krin - Heir of Sorrows (1988-11-14) [Paperback]

Fatty, in 1984, your mate Carlo made an arrangement with Prof Eric Sunderland, Thatch and Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer of the UGC – Swinnerton-Dyer was a maths don at Cambridge, used to walk around the University dressed in nothing but a small towel wrapped around his nether regions and propositioned male undergrads – that UCNW would not be shut down in exchange for my career and the careers of other witnesses being ruined. That is why after 1984 the whole institution was full of thousands of gits silently blackmailing the authorities and why those involved in very serious crime were given jobs as academics that they simply couldn’t do. Their standards were laughable, Meri, Dr Duckula Morris et al had no understanding of what academic work involved; however they couldn’t be challenged because of the barrel of crap that was being concealed.

The main problem being Gwynne the Lobotomist sitting in the Student Health Centre running a trafficking ring with Dr D.G.E. Wood and of course Dafydd giving orders in the Dept of Psychology. But the entire institution was a vehicle for the Gang anyway.

Those are the facts Fatty, no matter how distraught Diana became. Your pal Carlo was the Chancellor of UCNW for decades. In 1988 Carlo received a letter from Alison Taylor telling him that children in north Wales were being abused; his ‘office’ wrote back saying that he couldn’t get involved.

Then there was Carlo’s support for Bishop Peter Ball after Ball had been caught molesting boys. Carlo insulted one of the complainants and allowed Peter Ball to live in one of Carlo’s cottages on the Duchy estate in Somerset. Somerset at the time hosted a number of vicars who were molesters or just criminals, as discussed in ‘He Was Looking At I In A Funny Way…’ The cottage was at Aller.

There is a beauty spot at Aller known as Marshall’s Elm. My friends’ mum Mrs Slocombe used to take me there in her Morris Minor with my friends, her two boys David and Philip, for picnics when we lived near the Slocombes at Bawdrip. Bawdrip hosted a molesting vicar, the Rev Rigg, who’s offending was concealed by George Carey, who also concealed Peter Ball’s sex crimes. Mrs Slocombe knew about Rigg, all the local women who were involved with Bawdrip Church did, they were locking their doors at home to stop Rigg coming in because he hassled adults as well as children. David Slocombe later married the daughter of a local policeman; David has worked for Devon and Somerset County Councils… See ‘He Was Looking At I In A Funny Way…’.

David’s brother Philip has featured in previous posts; Philip went to Sheffield University and ended up working in the financial services. Philip joined the Federation of Conservative Students at Sheffield. Sheffield University hosted a few big hitters who supported the Gang, including Hans Krebs who discovered the Krebs Cycle and of course the city of Sheffield was part of Savile’s empire and ruled politically by David Blunkett who colluded with Savile and the Gang, as did Blunkett’s henchmen, including Clive Betts. See post ‘The Big Questions’. Hans’s son Lord John Krebs was a junior zoologist of no reputation at all who went to work at UCNW, discovered a paedophile ring and did even better out of that than his old dad who made an historical advance in biochemistry/physiology. See post ‘The Science Of Animal Behaviour’.

Philip and I wrote to each other until about 1983. The Dirty Digger has Philip’s letters to me, they were in the boxes of documents that were stolen from my house, flogged to the Digger, given to George Carman QC etc.

Now here’s another Everyday Story Of Bridgy Folk. Philip went to Huish’s Grammar School in Taunton and his big mate at Huish’s was Micky Maxwell. Micky Maxwell, while still at university, became quite a wealthy man. In fact Micky acquired three houses when still a student. No-one quite knew how. Micky wasn’t from a privileged family, Micky was the clever kid of a Bridgwater family and gave his older brother a terrible time for not being academic. Micky’s older brother went to Haygrove School in Bridgwater – he was there when Brown was at Haygrove – and after leaving school became a carpenter. A girl in my own class at Chilton, Julie Coombes, had been friends with Micky’s older brother and she sort of swapped around as the girlfriend of Micky’s brother and his friends. When I was in my first year at UCNW, I was back in Bridgy for a few days and I bumped into Julie. She had just got married to Jon Barnard, Micky Maxwell’s brother’s friend and they had busted a gut to buy a small new-build on the east (the undesirable) side of Bridgwater. Julie seemed to be set for a rather boring existence in Bridgy.

Imagine my surprise when I was advised to take an interest in Julie and Jon Barnard’s business in Bridgwater the other day. Jon’s small ailing business became very, very successful ooh at about the time when the luck of so many people in Bridgy took a turn for the better as the Gang came after me… I note that after I began this blog Julie resigned as a Director of her husband’s company.

Julie arrived at Chilton School later than the usual age at which kids start secondary school. She had previously been at St Audries School, a girls’ boarding school at East Quantoxhead, very different to Chilton. I think that her family must have hit sudden financial problems although I never asked her; they were short of money, Julie was still wearing her St Audries uniform and was being targeted for it. Like me, Julie never had money for trendy clothes and she got it in the neck for quite a few years at Chilton because of this.

I never went to Julie’s house, but they lived in a ‘better’ area of Bridgy, having managed to hang on to the house when they were clobbered by whatever disaster hit them. I’m fairly sure that they lived in Durleigh, the eccentric choice of habitat favoured by Alan Yentob when, during the Waterhouse Inquiry, Botney decided that Bridgy was the place for him to live. See comments following my post ‘He Was Looking At I In A Funny Way…’

The Slocombes lived at Durleigh as well. Quite a few people knew me at Durleigh. They don’t know who Botney is though, although they might now that I’ve blogged about his house near Durleigh reservoir. There is however one person who lives near Botney who knows who Botney is. That is my friend who went to Stirling University with Lord Jack McConnell and who was forced out of his job at the BBC when his wife, who had already tangled with Michael Grade and Grade’s mate Samuel Brittan in that 1985 summer job at the Edinburgh Fringe box office, wanted to make a documentary about north Wales when she worked at the Royal Television Society. She was a close friend of mine at Chilton Trinity School and knew Julie Coombes!

When all young people used to take the piss out of ‘Terry and June’, Brown, a friend from Bridgy and I decided to write some episodes of ‘Terry and June’ that did not revolve around jokes about the cooking of the lady next door or Terry being incompetent re housework. We found that it was quite easy to write episodes of ‘Terry and June’; we had an episode in which June goes to Greenham Common and Terry thinks that she’s become a lesbian, an episode in which Terry catches an STD and the clinic sends the result back to his boss and a few more.

See the source image

It’s just as well that we never bothered to send our ‘Terry and June’ scripts into the BBC, because when my friend worked there two years later, he found out that the Commissioning Dept received scripts from hopefuls, kept them in a huge tray and when another ‘script-writer’ had paid the required bribe, they were told to ‘take a script from that tray, any script that you want’. My friend worked in the Commissioning Dept with William Miller, son of Top Doc Jonathan, son of Emanuel the child psychiatrist, Jonathan who has been such a good friend to the Gang. See previous posts.

Hey Botney, Mrs Brown used to attend a Wimmin’s Discussion Group at Bridgwater College and in one session they conducted a feminist analysis of ‘Terry and June’.

Botney, if middle-aged ladies in Bridgy were ripping ‘Terry and June’ apart as nonsense, who did you think was actually watching it?

Here is a recent photo of Botney to enable his neighbours to identify him on sight:

While Botney has been living under cover in Bridgy, he has been the driver behind some Bridgy Community Initiatives!

There will be more info re Botney and Bridgy in future posts…

I knew another former St Audries pupil as well as Julie Coombes; a girl called Juliet who was in my A level biology class at Bridgwater College. Juliet’s dad farmed on the Somerset Levels, but I remember Juliet telling me that he wasn’t like the neighbouring farmers – I think that Juliet’s dad was interested in various avant garde farming methods and diversification that is much more common these days but was unusual then – and didn’t get on with them. Juliet witnessed much of the insanity at Bridgwater College, particularly on the part of Pam Sellers, the peculiar biology teacher who carried out vindictive attacks on certain students and cancelled our lessons on a Wednesday afternoon because she always went to the Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton then (see previous posts). Juliet was friendly and pleasant but I don’t think that she felt able to tangle with Sellers et al. Her parents were strict and put her under much pressure; she did well in her A levels but not well enough to get into medical school and they gave her a hard time over it. Juliet’s dad featured in a TV documentary on diversification in farming in 1980 and Sellers insisted on us watching the film in class, although Juliet was known to be extremely uncomfortable with this.

I have also been advised to take an interest in the now huge Bridgwater construction business established decades ago by an Italian PoW, Mr Notaro. The Notaros were/are a big family and the older generation had suffered much racism from certain cohorts in Bridgy, ‘those bloody Eyeties’. The original Mr Notaro really did begin with nothing, he lived in an old railway carriage on Paul Triggol’s farm – run by Paul’s dad Alvon Triggol in those days – that neighboured our house near Fiddington and worked really hard…

It’s a real laugh, although the Notaros were doing well when I left Bridgy, they are now building everything in Somerset, absolutely everything. Previous posts have discussed how Tom King’s neglect of the Bridgwater constituency left the town with bugger all employment, but loads of warehouses and big new-build estates, designed to house people who couldn’t afford Taunton prices. Virtually every one of those huge new-build estates has a Notaro flag flying from it. Yes, the Notaros even have their own flag these days.

There was a leading light in the Bridgwater Tories who really hated the Notaros, including all other Italians who stayed in Somerset after their PoW days in WW II. He was a builder himself, he did loads of building work for the Tories in the belief that they would then elect him as a Councillor, but they didn’t. They had an arrangement not to elect him because he was ‘uncouth’. Which he was, but he still did all that building work for them. The Uncouth Tory had a lot of kids and the family were famous in Bridgy because their mum was a martial arts expert, which was very unusual in those days in Bridgy. She had a wild temper and the Uncouth Tory, despite being sizeable, was thrown around the house by her, as were the kids. One of the Uncouth Tory’s sons rated himself as a chess player and had been the Bridgy Chess Champion. When he heard that I played chess, it was the usual ‘Ooh I’ll beat that girl, girls can’t play chess’. So we played a game. I won. He said it was a fluke, another game was needed. I won. It continued, he then returned on another day for a ‘best of three’ match. Er, yes…

Philip G! There was no mystery! You WERE the Bridgy chess champion but the Bridgwater schools didn’t have any chess champions and you learnt chess at Sydenham School. They weren’t up to much re chess at Sydenham so you never learnt to play against a fierce opponent. I did. The Bridgwater Tories will hate this, but my annoying old grandfather taught me chess when I was seven or eight. Furthermore he never let me win. I was really pissed offt this as a kid, every Sunday I was thrashed at chess by grandpa. Then when I was 10 I beat him. So I could beat nearly everyone else at chess as well. I can’t anymore, because I went to school in Bridgwater I never found kids who were better than me to play against so I never improved. In my 20s, everyone keen on chess beat me at chess…

The Uncouth Tory who hated Eyeties hated Eyeties so much that he wouldn’t speak to them. In fact he wouldn’t even look at them. I heard witness accounts; teenagers who were friends with the offspring of Italian PoWs would talk about the Uncouth Tory meeting them in Bridgy with their Italian friends and cutting the Italian friends dead. If the Italian kids tried to say something to the Uncouth Tory, he would look in the opposite direction. If they persisted, he walked off. It was truly impressive bigotry.

Here’s a nice picture of the MP for Bridgwater at the time, with Paddy Pantsdown and Jim Callaghan’s daughter. (Jim’s daughter, after divorcing Dr Death’s friend Peter Jay, married Top Doc Prof Michael Adler, an HIV/AIDS Expert from the Middlesex/UCL. Baroness Jay met Michael through her own HIV/AIDS work. See previous posts.)

There will be another blog post on Somerset Life soon; if any readers know who was leading Somerset Education Authority in the 1970s and 80s, please let me know, because they were very guilty indeed and I haven’t been able to find out who they were.

 

When questioned by the inquest into the death of Diana, Fatty Soames said that he saw his job as “to speak up for the Prince of Wales”. Fatty denied threatening Diana and warning her that “accidents happen” in the months before she died.

In 1972, Fatty left Kensington Palace and the British Army to work as a stockbroker. In 1974, Fatty became a personal assistant; first to Sir James Goldsmith and then in 1976 to US Senator Mark Hatfield, whose employ Fatty left in 1978 to become a Director of Bland Welch, Lloyd’s Brokers. Between 1979–81, Fatty was an Assistant Director of the Sedgwick Group.

Sir Jams Goldsmith has featured in previous posts and comments. Sir Jams was very rich, very right wing, very excessive, took part in many Ugandan discussions and was a mate of Lord Lucan and John Aspinall, the boozing, gambling, self-diagnosed alpha male who kept a zoo in which the lions devoured the keepers. See previous posts.

Fatty was elected as the MP for Crawley at the 1983 General Election and held the seat until 1997. In the 1997 General Election, Fatty stood as the successful Tory candidate for Mid-Sussex after Tim Renton stood down at the election. Fatty has remained the constituency MP since then.

Both constituencies that Fatty has represented are in Bloomsbury Group country and the area elects Councillors and MPs who conceal the Sussex end of Dafydd’s operation. Kids in care from north Wales were trafficked to brothels in Brighton.

Hellingly Hospital, formerly known as the East Sussex County Asylum, was experienced by Patient F before he moved in north Wales in 1979. F told me that Hellingly was if anything as dangerous as Denbigh. While there a completely psychotic patient tried to murder F and told staff that he’d have another go as soon as he could. F was discharged, although homeless and far from well himself, after the Top Doctors admitted that the hospital could not keep him safe from the man who was keen to kill him. It was also at Hellingly that F, a slightly built hippy, was challenged to a fight with a sizeable aggressive non-hippy. The response of the Angels was to gather in a circle to watch the big fight.

Since I began this blog I received information that Hellingly Top Docs were part of Dafydd’s network and the Grapevine Of Corruption was brought into use one more when F began confronting social workers in Gwynedd when he found out about the boys in the Ty Newydd children’s home being beaten up by the social workers. See previous posts, including for more info on Hellingly.

I’m also fairly sure that the family of the odious Mandy Leigh who worked at St George’s when I did and spent her entire time toadying to those facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring and trampling over everyone else lived in one of those constituencies represented by Fatty.

So why did Fatty spontaneously change constituencies in 1997, as the Waterhouse Inquiry was launched??

Tim Renton was a key member of Thatch’s Gov’ts. Renton stood down in 1997, bagging a peerage and thus made way for Fatty.

Eton-educated Ronald Timothy Renton, Baron Renton of Mount Harry, also served as a Minister of State in the Home Office but I’m not sure when. That Tim was Thatch’s Chief Whip from 24 July 1989 until Thatch was deposed in Nov 1990 tells us much that we need to know about Tim. I was lured into the trap of a seemingly wonderful job at St George’s in April/May 1989; Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain published a co-authored paper with Prof Ollie Brooke just as I was in the process of applying for/accepting the job.

Ollie, the key player in a pan-European paedophile ring, had been jailed for child porn offences in Dec 1986 and was released early when he appealed to Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane in May 1987. At both of his trials, hundreds of letters of support for Ollie ‘from colleagues’ were submitted to the presiding judges. The world was told that Ollie was a sad, disgraced man who was finished. See post ‘Oliver!’.

Staff at St George’s spoke to me of the unfortunate Ollie episode, of how Chamberlain was sorry that such a ‘brilliant scientist’ had been ruined, but that Ollie was long gone. Ollie was never a ‘brilliant scientist’; he did what most medics of his era did ie. a few not very impressive publications as a junior doc in order to demonstrate sufficient science to bag a consultant’s job. Once Ollie had been given his post as a consultant paediatrician and Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s – by Nice Lady Doctor Baroness June Lloyd, who knew when she became Head of the newly established Dept of Paediatrics at St George’s that a huge trafficking ring was being facilitated by St George’s and that her job was to fill that Dept of Paediatrics with other Top Docs who would develop the ring (see previous posts) – Ollie never published anything again, until a hastily co-authored paper appeared in a paediatrics journal edited by one of his mates literally days before his trial in Dec 1986. Thus Ollie could be constructed as an active, cutting edge academic paediatrician when the Court was told of his many wonders.

Ollie’s next foray into academia was with Chamberlain when they published a paper just as Chamberlain was offering me a job with his team. St George’s was given as Ollie’s affiliated institution on that paper. Ollie and other St George’s staff then published a small number of papers together while I was working at St George’s. Ollie’s address on the papers was yet again given as St George’s. Once it was clear that I was going to get the hell out of St George’s asap, the brilliant scientist stopped publishing with my colleagues and indeed never published anything ever again. See post ‘Too Many Pills’. Ollie’s sudden and late flush of academic authorship not only coincided with my arrival and time at St George’s, but also with the repeated efforts that Chamberlain’s mates in north Wales made to have me imprisoned by perjuring themselves in the High Court at various locations in England and Wales. Those Court cases correlated perfectly with various crucial events taking place during Thatch’s final years as PM and the fortunate of her friend, Minister and aide, Peter Morrison. See post ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

Tim Renton was Chief Whip throughout it all. He was Chief Whip in late 1989 when a ‘case conference’ was held in north Wales about my dangerousness, by the Gang, while I was living and working in London. The driving force behind the case conference was Tony Francis. It was held by a man of whom I had never heard until a few years ago when my lawyers accessed the documentation, Dr Chris Hunter. People of whom I had never met or indeed heard of gave evidence about me as well as members of the Gang who had repeatedly broken the law with regard to me and others. Hunter’s conclusion was that I was extremely dangerous and should be incarcerated in a high security psych hospital. Hunter offered to compile a report for the Court about me; I was not facing any charges at the time. See post ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’.

Posts such as ‘Security, Security’ have discussed the two Public Inquiries into the horrors of Ashworth Hospital on Merseyside in the late 1980s/90s. Ashworth was run as one of the Gang’s personal prisons and the place was in chaos. A sex abuse ring was running within the hospital, the brutality was unbelievable and the murder of a patient by an Angel finally drew attention to just how bad things were there. Both Inquiries concluded that the Angels had been a little excessive but the main problem was an institution containing Dangerous Nutters. Dafydd’s mates made up the panels of both Inquiries. The Angels of Ashworth were all members of the POA (Prison Officers Association) and many of them were members of the National Front. The POA ran Ashworth and there were fist fights between Angels, Top Docs and clin psychologists, all three ‘professional’ groups hating each other. The POA were far more violent than the Top Docs or clin psychs so they won the day; their Professional Colleagues had their tyres slashed, received death threats and had fire bombs placed under their cars.

Dr Chris Hunter had established and managed Lawrence Ward, the ‘personality disorder unit’ at Ashworth, where the most serious ‘problems’ existed. Having presided over such excellence, Chris Hunter was also given the Caswell Clinic in south Wales to run, another facility for treating Dangerous Nutters. Well he was an Expert.

Tim Renton was also Chief Whip throughout the events detailed in my post ‘The Bitterest Pill’, in which during the first eight months of 1990, the Gang repeatedly took me to the High Court in attempts to have me imprisoned on the basis of extensive perjury that was exposed during each case. The lawyers and judges involved were colleagues and personal friends of many of Thatch’s Ministers who were lawyers themselves. ‘The Bitterest Pill’ correlates dates of the events; they were clearly happening in direct relation to scraps within Thatch’s Gov’t and Sir Peter Morrison’s roles in that Gov’t.

I have detailed many times on the blog how city financiers were involved with the Westminster Paedophile Ring. One of the Gang’s main men in the city was Peter Walker. It needs to be borne in mind that Edward du Cann’s battle with my grandfather – du Cann, the Tory MP for Taunton, was a good friend of Peter Walker – when I was still a kid added fuel to the fire re the Gang’s pursuit of me.

Du Cann was such a successful and well-connected crook that, even after his public outing as a crook in 1974 after the collapse of Keyser Ullman, the merchant bank of which du Cann was a Director (it was in 1974 that Stuart the paedophile who was a spotter for Dafydd’s Gang moved into a cottage down the lane from our house, he was one of our two nearest neighbours), as discussed in ‘The Milk Street and Other Mafias’, du Cann remained an important figure in the City. But then du Cann was back in business shortly after his bankruptcy in 1993 and no matter how many millions were owed to people after the collapse of yet another Edward du Cann vehicle, du Cann always found himself living more than comfortably. He ended his days living in Cyprus – by which time D.G.E. Wood was running clinics on Cyprus – owning vineyards. See previous posts.

Du Cann didn’t just run a corner shop a la Thatch’s dad, he always Thought Big. In 1984, du Cann succeeded Duncan Sandys – who was married to Diana Churchill, the eldest sister of Fatty’s mum Mary – as Chairman of Lonrho. du Cann was succeeded as the Chair of Lonrho himself by Tiny Rowland, when du Cann was forced to resign his Chairmanship as a result of the collapse of Homes Assured of which du Cann was Deputy Chairman. In true du Cann style, he resigned as Deputy Chair two days before Homes Assured collapsed, owing £10 million to creditors.

Lonrho, a multinational with big interests in mining and Rhodesia, starred in previous posts, but it was such an impressive shitfest that I continue to find further gems. I might dedicate yet another blog post to Lonrho if I have time.

Tiny Rowland (discussed extensively in previous posts) had been CEO of Lonrho, 1962-94 and was famously the subject of Grocer Heath’s ‘unacceptable face of capitalism’ comments in 1973. The unacceptability did not go away. Tiny was forced to step down as Chair of Lonrho in Oct 1993 after a boardroom coup organised by Dieter Bock. See previous posts.

Then there was the battle between Tiny and al Fayed re the ownership of Harrods…

Oh well accidents happen as Fatty reassures us.

See the source image

One of Tiny’s fellow Directors of Lonrho when the Grocer denounced it as the unacceptable face of capitalism was Angus Ogilvy. The Bridgwater Tories used to be obsessed with Angus Ogilvy, Ogilvy was seen as epitomising all that was cool and glamourous about Toryism and Poshness. I didn’t realise that he was a mate of Edward du Cann’s, that’ll be how Angus came into the orbit of the Enmore Set, who considered themselves a cut above Durleigh.

Sir Angus James Bruce Ogilvy, (14 September 1928-26 December 2004) was best known as the husband of Princess Alexandra, one of Brenda’s cousins. Ogilvy was named in the scandal involving Lonrho breaking the sanctions against Ian Smith’s regime in Rhodesia. After Ogilvy’s business career ended in 1976 as a result of the Lonrho affair,  Angus was heavily involved in charidee work.

The Hon. Angus Ogilvy was the second son of the 12th Earl of Airlie and Lady Alexandra Coke, the daughter of the 3rd Earl of Leicester. Angus’s grandmother, Mabell Ogilvy, Countess of Airlie, was a close friend and Lady-in-Waiting to Queen Mary. Queen Mary featured in previous posts; Mary was the Queen Consort of King George V. George V was killed prematurely with opiates by Top Doc Lord Bertrand Dawson of Penn, as Penn admitted. Mary’s brother, the Earl of Athlone (originally Prince Alexander of Teck, Mary being Princess Mary of Teck of German Royalty) was Chairman of the Middlesex Hospital and Chancellor of the University of London. I’m not sure if Queen Mary’s brother was still Chairman of the Middlesex when Gwynne trained there, but the Earl of Athlone was Chancellor of London University when that institution gave Gwynne his degree in medicine. See previous posts for the gen on the Tecks…

Ogilvy’s father was a Lord-in-Waiting to King George V and Lord Chamberlain to Backstairs Billy’s boss who evolved into the Queen Mum but went under the name of Queen Elizabeth when Angus’s dad was Lord-in-Waiting. Angus Ogilvy was a second cousin of Diana Mosley, second cousin of Lavinia Fitzalan-Howard, Duchess of Norfolk, and a second cousin once removed of Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, 5th Marquess of Salisbury. Angus was also third cousin, once removed, of Pamela Harriman.

Angus Ogilvy is also related to Fatty Soames. Angus’s grandfather, Lt Col David Stanley Williams Ogilvy 11th (or 6th) Earl of Airlie, was the brother of Clementine Ogilvy Hozier aka Mrs Winston Churchill.

Ogilvy was educated at Heatherdown School near Ascot and then Eton. Between 1946 and 1948, while on National Service, Angus was commissioned as an officer in the  Scots Guards. Angus completed a BA in PPE at Trinity College, Oxford, graduating in 1950.

After Oxford, Ogilvy worked at the Drayton company, later working with Tiny Rowland in Drayton’s subsidiary, London and Rhodesia Mining and Land Company aka Lonrho.

L-R: Sir James Ramsay (Governor of Queensland), Princess Alexandra, Sir Angus Ogilvy, and Lady Janet Ramsay at Government House, 1978

On 24 April 1963, Ogilvy married Princess Alexandra of Kent, a granddaughter of  King George V, at Westminster Abbey. The wedding ceremony was attended by all the members of the Royal Family and was broadcast worldwide on TV, watched by an estimated 200 million people.

The Royal Wedding served the function of so many Royal Weddings, in that it was an excellent distraction from other matters, in this case the Profumo Affair that had been for some months been providing wonderfully sordid revelations re the conduct of people dangerously close to Royals and rumours of the involvement of Royals per se. John Profumo had made his statement to the House denying any impropriety with Christine Keeler on 22 March 1963. Not that anyone believed Profumo; a row ensued with various MPs taking chunks out of each other and in particular Harold Macmillan the PM; Mr Thrope and Nigel Birch – the Tory MP for Flintshire (which became West Flintshire), who later became Lord Rhyl and was a paid up member of the Gang – led the fray. See previous posts.

Meanwhile, Ma’am Darling and her husband Lord Snowdon were enjoying recreational chemicals and Ugandan discussions, some of those services being provided by Gwynne and Dafydd. Lord S – who’s grandfather was a psychiatrist, had his country house near Caernarfon where Lords S and Ma’am Darling dropped in to stay from time to time – was a good mate of Mr Thrope and Roger Gilliatt as well as Jeremy Fry, who lived in Bath. Lord S and Ma’am Darling’s wedding on 6 May 1960 proved a problem where the selection of the best man was concerned. Jeremy Fry was ruled out because he has recently been convicted of opportuning for immoral purposes, Mr Thrope couldn’t do it either because he had been boasting of having shagged both Ma’am Darling and Lord S, so the job was given to Roger Gilliatt. Gwynne’s mate.

For the extraordinary background to Ma’am Darling’s arranged and, from the very outset, utterly toxic marriage to Lord Snowdon, see post ‘Holding The Country To Ransom – Part II’.

Jeremy Fry wasn’t allowed in the wedding photos but he remained a good mate of the Snowdons. Jeremy lived near Bath and held really good parties, nearly as good as those at Cliveden. In Lord S’s final years, it was revealed by a DNA test that Lord S was the biological father of Polly Fry, Jeremy Fry’s daughter. Polly was conceived at the time of the engagement of Ma’am Darling and Lord S. Lord S warmly welcomed Polly as an addition to his family. See previous posts.

I’m not Shocked and Disgusted at the Ugandan discussions and I hope that if a male friend or partner of mine discovered that they had fathered someone years ago they would not be dishonest enough to deny it or tell the long-lost offspring to get lost. My problem here is with the involvement of Gwynne and Dafydd, their activities in coercing people to enter the sex industry who were absolutely not interested and their destruction of anyone who dared challenge their criminal activities.

Jeremy Fry was a member of the Fry’s chocolate dynasty and much of the dynasty was based in Bristol. See previous posts for info on Jeremy and his family.

Bath is not far from Bristol and the two cities have excellent transport links. Bath is a lot posher than Bristol and during the 1980s, Bath became very expensive indeed and was the habitat of wealthy people who worked in London. The train from Paddington to Bath was not like any other West Country train, it was mind-blowing in terms of the packed first class carriage of city gents boozing on their way home.

Bath did not only become popular with Civil Service mandarins and city financiers, it also acted as a magnet for celebs. Rockers purchased homes there, including Peter Gabriel; Artists also accumulated in the surrounding area because there were people in Bath who could afford to pay high prices for works of art. F once sold an oil painting to an interior designer in Bath for thousands. No-one in north Wales could afford to pay F the sort of prices that his work commanded when he did manage to sell it in Bath or London.

In 1969 the pop artist Peter Blake left London to live at Bath.

Sir Peter Thomas Blake (born 25 June 1932) is best known for co-creating the sleeve design for the Beatles’ album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. His other best known works include the cover of the Band Aid single ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ and the Live Aid concert poster. Blake also designed the 2012 Brit Award statuette. See previous posts for details of the Beatles’ connections to the Gang, as well as those of Paula Yates and more information re Peter Black.

Lesley Crowther lived in Bath and was nearly killed when he crashed his Rolls when driving home to Bath on 3 Oct 1992. Crowther sustained serious head injuries and was never the same again. No cause of the crash was ever identified. Crowther was the father-in-law of Phil Lynott from Thin Lizzy who developed serious Class A addiction problems and died as a result on 4 Jan 1986. The account of Lynott’s ‘treatment’ and death suggests serious neglect on the part of the Top Docs.

Leslie Crowther was heavily involved with charidees with links to those we know and love. Crowther had serious drink problem and although he and his family spoke of his Treatment and how Proud everyone was of him, again there are indications of the very familiar ‘We’ll not work too hard to save this rich drunk who knows about organised abuse’ Top Docs’ attitude. Crowther struggled on after his car crash and died on 29 Sept 1996, just as The Hague announced that Ronnie Waterhouse would be holding his Inquiry in four months time. Patient F and I had just been arrested yet again and preparations to sent me to a secure unit were in hand…

Crowther’s family seemed unaware that the Top Docs had not always acted in the best interests of Crowther and Lynott.  See previous posts for further details re Crowther and Phil Lynott…

There are elite ‘detox’ clinics in the vicinity of Bath and such clinics are often a cover for flogging yet more drugs to the celebs. That is rife in NHS clinics and it is even more common in the posh expensive clinics because the patients have a lot of money of which they can be relieved. Cecil Parkinson’s wife Ann helped establish one such facility – Action Of Addiction – after the Parkinsons’ daughter Mary developed addiction problems and became a sex worker. The rescued Mary was found dead on Dec 10 2017. Mary had Committed Suicide By Hanging Herself. Two days after she was discharged from the private Nightingale Hospital.

After Mary’s difficult younger years:

‘she had reconciled with Cecil and his death in January 2016 hit her hard. Towards the end of her life she lived alone as she battled with depression.

Dr Mike McPhillips, a psychiatrist at the private Nightingale Hospital told the inquest: “She was transferred to my care in the summer of 2017. Mary did not really believe that she was mentally ill, and she did not believe she had been mentally ill in the past. She did not admit that she had a bipolar diagnosis. She really felt she should have been in an addiction centre. Friends and family met to discuss what to do. It had been a tremendous difficulty as a group of people trying to persuade Mary what we thought was the best course of action. She found it very difficult to make up her mind.”

Dr McPhillips added: “It was her persuasion to be part of the addiction treatment centre. She strongly believed it was the way to get better, even with things like depression. There was a point I was so concerned that I did invite a section assessment. Those who knew her had the challenging experience of looking her in the eyes and saying ‘Are you going to be alright?’ and then finding out she was planning on killing herself. There was a great anxiety about letting her out of the hospital. All possible levels of care, from living with a friend, living with a carer – everything had been discussed. On each occasion she found a way to avoid that care. Tragically she was found hanging on December 10.”

A friend had come around to meet Mary after she failed to show up for an outing. She peered through the letterbox and at first thought she was standing on the stairs, but then realised she was hanging. A neighbour then smashed a window to get into the house and called an ambulance.

Westminster Coroner Dr Shirley Radcliffe said: “It would seem to me it is a clear case, and that an appropriate conclusion, is that Mary Parkinson has killed herself. She was found hanging at her home address. She suffered from bipolar disorder. She went back to her home address and hung herself. Ambulance crews arrived but it was not possible to resuscitate her.”

The coroner said Miss Parkinson died as a result of asphyxiation and recorded a verdict of suicide.’

The usual advert followed this article from The Mirror:

Samaritans (116 123) operates a 24-hour service available every day of the year. If you prefer to write down how you’re feeling… [If necessary it will be amended by any Top Docs fearful of your credibility as a witness and shared with third parties, including the best lawyers that the MDU and NHS can find. Neither will the Sams help in cases of evidence of criminal activity of People In Gov’t, Aristocracy Or Royals.

Mary Parkinson had knowledge of Crime In High Tory Places. She was found hanging after this blog really got underway and had mentioned people very well-known to Cecil…

 

See previous posts for details of Mary Parkinson and her mother Lady Ann’s contribution to Dafydd-land.

Some of the detox clinics were a well-kept secret; Will Self wrote of detoxing in a clinic near Weston-Super-Mare that I had no idea existed.

Will Self is married to journo Deborah Orr; they separated in 2017. I have only just discovered that Orr was Deputy Editor of ‘City Limits’ when ‘City Limits’ tried to persuade the man from Fiddington whom Dame Heather Hallett ensured did not go to prison for manslaughter to use ‘City Limits’  for PR and advertising purposes. He told them that he really didn’t want to be featured in a magazine for Homosexuals. They snapped ‘You’re not homophobic are you?’

Deborah: Yes he is! As are all of his mates, who were being cultivated by the Oxford crowd when the Gang were after my friends and I. I cannot believe that the degenerate but Oxbridge-educated offspring of the High Tories didn’t notice the cultural difference.

I knew that Deborah and Will knew all about the years of the Upper Classes Going To Bridgy but I had no idea that it was one of her staff who rang him up that day… I was in the room Deborah. I thought ‘That’ll show the unprincipled metropolitan classes what happens in the face of such shameless opportunism…’

I wonder if Deborah and Will have been to dinner at Durleigh with Botney?

 

Bath resident Peter Blake was part of the art movement known as the Brotherhood of Ruralists. Graham Ovenden was a founder of the Brotherhood of Ruralists in 1975, along with Graham Arnold, Ann Arnold, Peter Blake, David Inshaw, Annie Ovenden and Jann Haworth. The Brotherhood is no longer extant, although in 2005 it had a major London exhibition at the Leicester Galleries. They were given the name “Brotherhood of Ruralists” by the writer Laurie Lee.

Graham Ovenden was born in Hampshire, into a Fabian household and was taught music privately by Albert Ketèlbey. Ovenden was a student at the Royal College of Music before taking up painting around 1962. Ovenden was tutored by Lord David Cecil and John Betjeman. Betjeman was a close friend of Harold Wilson’s wife Mary and the father of Candida, one of the originals of ‘Private Eye’. The Eye crowd knew of the Gang and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Candida became Candida Lycett Green after she married Rupert, a Savile Row tailor made clothes for the Stars. In the 1960s, the Lycett Greens were part of Swinging London, friends with Sir Jams’s and Lord Lucan’s mate John Aspinall and the Beatles, Terence Stamp and the rest… See post ‘Come Friendly Bombs…’

Candida was also a friend of Carlo.

Candida died from pancreatic cancer on 19 Aug 2014. By then Operation Pallial had resulted in a few elderly molesters who once stalked north Wales being imprisoned but more importantly, the Macur Review of the Waterhouse Inquiry was on the way. Not that Candida, the key witness of the Posh End of the Gang’s network, could have caused much damage what with Call Me Dave and Theresa May carefully rigging the Macur Review and Lady Justice Macur redacting nearly all of her final Report that was as exhaustive and transparent as Ronnie’s original Inquiry had been, as Julia Macur confirmed.

R.I.P. Candida, founder of the Eye, an organ who’s founders employed Ronnie Waterhouse as their libel reader.

In 2006, Lycett Green organised various events to mark the centenary of her father’s birth. These included a gala at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London and a jamboree in Cornwall for eight thousand people.

Statue (2007) of Sir John Betjeman at St Pancras Station. A most appropriate location, St Pancras Station being the venue throughout the 1980s where one could see kids in care offering their services as sex workers and Empowered Service Users sleeping rough before they were eventually found dead. If I noticed this going on why did so many other people Know Nuzzing? Then there was a TV documentary in the 1990s in which the documentary makers Got Down With The Kids who were living rough in London, including at St Pancras Station. As The Kids angrily discussed Their Lives And Their Hopes with the well-heeled ones behind the cameras, they protested angrily about their public image as Scum and one of them asked that if they were the Scum, why was the MP for NAME OF CONSTITUENCY REPLACED BY A LOUD BLEEP approaching boys at St Pancras Station and offering them money to have sex him?

 

Candida’s dad’s former pupil and friend Graham Ovenden attended the Southampton School of Art and graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1968. One of his most important teachers was James Sellars, an expert on Samuel Palmer.

Ovenden moved to Cornwall from Richmond-upon-Thames in 1973 with his partner painter Annie Ovenden and their family. He bought a cottage on Bodmin Moor with 22 acres of land and began constructing “Barley Splatt”, a neo-Gothic building. All the building was done by Ovenden himself and by 1988 the house was about half finished. It was put on the market as an unfinished project in 2008 and sold.

Ovenden’s art work featuring pre-pubescent girls had long since caused concern, but Ovenden’s colleagues and friends robustly defended him and his work. At various times Ovenden’s work was seized by the police, censored, banned etc but was defended by eminent people including lawyer Lord Jeremy Hutchison and the artists David Hockney and Sir Hugh Casson (Casson taught Carlo watercolour painting). A number of models who had sat for Ovenden as children assured everyone that they had never encountered problems with him. Which they might not have, but some kids definitely did.

In March 2013, Ovenden went on trial at Truro Crown Court, accused with nine charges of indecency with a child and indecent assault on victims aged between six and 14. He denied the claims. On 2 April 2013, Ovenden was found guilty of six charges of indecency with a child and one charge of indecent assault against a child. The charges came from adults who claimed they had been abused by Ovenden as children. Some of them claimed that he abused children while they were posing for his pictures. The abuse charges related to incidents between 1972 and 1985. Ovenden was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment, suspended for two years. On 9 October 2013 the Appeal Court increased his sentence to an immediate prison term of 27 months.

While Ovenden seems not to have abused all the kids whom he encountered, some of them were very clear that he had abused them. Ovenden was a well-known gregarious man and at least some of the adults close to him must have known that there was genuine cause for concern. Yet their universal reaction in the face of questions was ‘How Very Dare You’…

Here’s Candida with Jilly Cooper, who writes books about posh people having sex with the lower orders – Jilly was a fan of Rhodri Morgan and even gave a donation to Rhodri’s campaign when he ran for the Leadership of the Welsh Labour Party –and Brian’s Missus:

Ovenden was defended by some very influential people. Jeremy Hutchison was of the Bloomsbury Group and his ex-wives/partners, friends and relations could be found everywhere; they included thespians, writers, lawyers and Top Docs with a good splattering of politicians and aristocrats eg. Peggy Ashcroft, John Mortimer (who shared sexual partners as well as friends with Roger Gilliatt), Grocer Heath….

Jeremy Hutchison was entertaining in Court but he boasted about defending ‘loveable rogues’ whom he knew were guilty and taking the piss out of witnesses whom he knew were telling the truth. Some of the loveable rogues were serious offenders who weren’t that loveable if one was on the receiving end of them.

Jeremy was best known for leading the defence at the Lady Chatterley trial. Hutchinson was a member of the Committee on Immigration Appeals and of the Committee on Identification Procedures; Vice-Chairman of the Arts Council of Great Britain and a Professor of Law at the Royal Academy of Arts. At the Tate Gallery, Jeremy Hutchison was first a Trustee and then Chairman.

Jeremy was a member of Middle Temple, like Ronnie Waterhouse. Jeremy picked up his peerage in 1978, the year that Mr Thrope was charged…

Hutchison went to Stowe School, the institution that educated Peregrine Worsthorne and George Melly, who had consensual sex with each other when they were still at school. So why Perry railed against Homosexuality in the Sunday Torygraph in the 1980s I’m not sure. Perry is married to Lucinda Lambton, the daughter of Grocer Heath’s Minister Lord Lambton who made waves in 1973 when he was the centre of a tabloid scandal after Lord L was photographed smoking a joint in bed with two call girls supplied by a Mayfair agency. Ronnie Waterhouse’s lifelong bestest friend Robin Day interviewed Lord Lambton and spat at him ‘Why would a man like you need to use a WHORE?’ Lord Lambton explained that he liked a bit of variety and asked Day if he did as well.

I have always admired Lord Lambton for that response, it was by far the best way of dealing with Robin Day, a man who was a big mate of the lawyers  – Geoffrey Howe and others as well as Waterhouse – who protected Dafydd and Gwynne while they ran the paedophile/sex abuse ring. However I have found out that Lord Lambton was almost certainly using call girls supplied by the Gang himself; Lord Lambton’s family estate was in Co Durham, so he was on site with the Gang’s network whether he was at home or in London.

Antony Lambton was the cousin of Alec Douglas-Home. Lambton was elected to Durham City Council and to Durham County Council in 1947, serving for two years. He was Tory MP for Berwick-on-Tweed, 1951-73, a seat which was held by William Beveridge, 1944-45.

See previous posts for Lord Lambton, who was undoubtedly someone else in a High Place who rendered Gwynne and Dafydd untouchable. Lord Lambton’s use of services provided by them will have been why the investigation by the security services after the News Of The Screws expose concluded that Lord Lambton was not a security risk, never had been and only enjoyed a bit of variety on that one occasion.

Following the scandal, Lambton retired, separated from his wife and bought bought Villa Cetinale, a 17th-century villa in Tuscany where he lived with Claire Ward, née Baring, mother of actress Rachel Ward and daughter of the cricketer Giles Baring. Lambton never divorced his wife Bindy, who died in 2003.

Here’s Lord L’s villa:

It is lovely, but I don’t think that Lord L did the sackcloth and ashes bit and lived as a recluse there. People obviously knew how to get hold of him, because he appeared on Channel 4’s ‘After Dark’ in 1991, in a discussion Chaired by St Helena Kennedy, alongside Duncan Campbell, Jane Moore, Clare Short, Anthony Howard and others. Lord L lived at his Tuscan villa until he died in hospital in Siena, Italy, on 30 December 2006.

In April 1991, shortly after I had been forced out of my job at St George’s and left destitute in London after Prof Nigel Eastman told me to go back to north Wales because Dafydd was my doctor and knew me, the Gang took me to the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand in yet another attempt to have me imprisoned! It was perjury as usual, with the knowledge of the MDU, Anne Ball (the solicitor whom they instructed) and the judge. St Helena was in the Court next to me conducting a test case re Wimmin Victims of domestic abuse.

St Helena’s book ‘Eve Was Framed’ thanks Nigel Eastman of St George’s Hospital for his advice and help in advising her over so many years. See post ‘Eve Was Framed – As Were A Lot Of Other People’. St Helena was one of the movers and shakers behind ‘WISH’ (Women In Special Hospitals) a charidee set up in the mid/late 1980s to Help Wimmin in high security psych hospitals. WISH – Julie Bindel was involved as well – knew about Savile in Broadmoor, knew about Dafydd and the Gang and although WISH repeatedly flagged up how many women in those hospitals had been the victims of sexual violence, they never mentioned that that violence had very frequently been incurred at the hands of the mental health services as well as the child protection services. See ‘Close Your Eyes And Make A WISH’.

WISH was established just as Brown and I began telling people of the excesses of the psych services in north Wales. I had written to MPs and charidees/campaigning organisations as well as to the GMC etc.

St Helena and her then colleague in Took’s Court, Michael Mansfield, are members of Gray’s Inn, as was Mars-Jones.

When St Helena’s mate Eastman told me to go back to north Wales because Dafydd knew me, he had received a letter from his colleague at St George’s/Springfield, Dr Robin Jacobson, stating that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that Jacobson thought that Tony Francis was as well.

In the 1990s when Service User Involvement and Advocacy arrived in north Wales, the Service User Representatives and Advocates were selected and appointed by the Gang. The Independent Advocacy Association was so independent that it was funded by the NHS and Gwynedd County Council and advocates were told not to support people making serious complaints, including those who’s relatives had died in the ‘care’ of the Gang.

One of the only two paid positions in the Independent Advocacy Association was held by a woman called Marilyn, who had paralegal training. I only encountered Marilyn a few times; I realised that she was a complete stooge who was never going to take on the Gang. However Marilyn had the required skill-set: she was pompous, patronising, well-educated compared to most Empowered Service Users (although there were four or five of us with postgrad degrees which was more than Marilyn had) and a lesbian who banged on endlessly about Wimmin’s Issues, who was hostile to men and had no links at all with local Welsh speaking people.

After Marilyn had been in post for a while it was evident that the Empowered Service Users loathed her. I have mentioned many times how the Slaves, Perfect Slaves were themselves all under the yoke of Dafydd re their own welfare and that of their families and friends. Marilyn was no exception. Her partner committed suicide when Marilyn was busy leading the IAA and Marilyn had a breakdown. After many months, Marilyn disappeared from Bangor. She had been given a salaried position at Broadmoor as a Wimmin’s Advocate.

St Helena, can you explain how that happened?

One of those who worked as an advocate with the IAA in the early 1990s was Angie Gliddon. Angie was married to Chris Gliddon, a lecturer in the Dept of Plant Biology at UCNW, who taught me. Chris and Angie were friends with the other staff in the Dept (as well as in other Depts) who were Of The Gang and knew about Eric Sunderland’s Deal that saved the bacon of UCNW and of course Chris Gliddon’s job. After Gaining Experience with the IAA, Angie then bagged a job at Bangor University organising clinical trials.

In the early 1980s, Angie wanted to be a Labour MP. She launched her career in politics by serving as a member of Anglesey County Council. Angie soon left the embrace of the crooks and facilitators of the sex abuse ring on that Council, complaining of their Sexist Behaviour. In recent years Angie rejoined Anglesey County Council as a Councillor. Many of Angie’s fellow Councillors were/are the very same Councillors of whom Angie was so critical in the 1980s. Furthermore at least one of them has been to jail since then, come out of jail and returned to their role as a Councillor.

The Chairman of the Directors of the IAA was the Service Users Rep, Les Clucus. Clucus began his career as the Rep in the early 1990s. No-one knew how Clucus came to be the Rep, there were never any elections for any Rep, Clucus just acquired the role and began sitting in the office of Ella Fisk, the Angel who ran the Day Centre, accessing confidential information that Clucus then used against Empowered Service Users. Clucus specialised in sexually harassing female Empowered Service Users, including one in Group Therapy who had Shared that she had been the victim of a violent rape when she was 15 years old. Clucus achieved notoriety among Empowered Service Users on a UK level by declaring at one Service Users Conference that ‘My job is to do what the NHS wants’.

At one point a Real Advocate turned up in Bangor, with a PhD and experience of professional advocacy in the US. For some baffling reason, the IAA actually employed her; Clucus soon rectified their mistake. After she challenged him re his grossly unprofessional conduct at a Service Users Conference, Clucus had her sacked.

The Service Users Conferences were an interesting phenomenon. Just after I finished my PhD, I was working unpaid, conducting fieldwork for use as pilots to raise research funding to pay me a salary. I received an e mail from Fiona MacDonald, a former social worker for Barnardo’s who was then working as a social work tutor at Bangor University (a full-time, well-paid job), asking me to extract money from Bangor University to ‘fund’ four Service Users of Fiona’s acquaintance to attend a Service Users Conference. The registration fees alone for each Service User were in the hundreds. I told Fiona that I didn’t have a salary myself and there was no way that I could ask the University to fund Empowered Service Users (who were not even staff or students anyway) to attend conferences.

I was later confronted by a group of angry Empowered Service Users who told me that Fiona MacDonald had told them that the Vice-Chancellor of Bangor University was Discriminating Against Disabled People and had advised them to sue Bangor University. The Empowered Ones had dealings with the University because since Miranda climbed aboard the Service User Involvement con, all social work courses are legally obliged to have a group of Empowered Service Users who ‘advise’ on the course. In north Wales, the Gang provided those who advised Fiona and co; one member of the Gang, John Borland, a lecturer at Bangor University, set up a Consultancy that supplied Approved Service Users for the social work course at Bangor. John did of course charge the University for this service, although the Empowered ones just received expenses. I had a look at the list of names of John Borland’s Empowered Service Users; I did not recognise any of them. None of them were regulars re Using The Services.

John Borland’s wife Sandra Betts was a sociology lecturer at Bangor University. Sandra’s interest was Feminism. Sandra rarely turned up for work and most of her teaching and virtually all of her marking was done by unpaid female PhD students. On one occasion I met a woman at a conference who had previously worked as a junior lecturer in sociology at Bangor and who resigned after spending the day in an exam moderation session with Betts as Betts systematically marked down a female student who was outstanding, thus ensuring that she did not get a First. Sandra’s problem was that if the student gained a First she would be returning to Sandra’s Dept to undertake a PhD in gender theory and with her on the premises, Sandra and the Wimmin would become a laughing stock.

Because the IAA and the Service User Reps were such a joke I was never involved with their organisations, but I had friends who were. High points included Les Clucus claiming rent for a Service Users HQ, the address of which was Les’s own house and Les appointing his mates to voluntary roles with the IAA, explaining that if they volunteered, they would have their meals paid for. Then one of the Service User Reps stole all the money from one of the various incarnations of the IAA.

Accountability was entirely absent, even after years of cock-ups and swindles. Neither was it just north Wales. Cardiff University, in collaboration with MIND, offered Funding to Empowered Service Users to conduct Service-User Led Research. Money was awarded to people who had no experience of, or training in, any sort of research. Several thousand quid was awarded to a young man resident in a secure unit, who enjoyed himself spending his Research Funding on consumer durables, expensive clothes etc. Mark Drakeford was something to do with that initiative, but I don’t know if the Cardiff Social Sciences Prof who attended the meetings and ‘advised’ on the shambles was actually Drakeford himself.

Another Director of the IAA was a fantasist called Cyril who had retired to a village near Caernarfon from Birmingham. Cyril told different stories to different people re his past, including that he had been a police officer in Birmingham, or a prison officer. Whatever version Cyril told people, it included his role in beating up prisoners, including the Birmingham Six. Understandably people who believed Cyril’s versions of his past career were rather concerned. I suspect that none of Cyril’s claims were true. However it didn’t worry the IAA. After they interviewed Cyril about his glorious past, he was On The Board!

I tried my best to avoid Cyril after he told me that the good thing about being a Director of the IAA was that he could enter any ward in the Hergest Unit, sit there for as long as he wanted, listen to any confidential conversations at all ‘and they can’t throw me out’.

Cyril was of the generation of racist bigots who joked that ‘I just call them Western Oriental Gentlemen’.

When I was arrested yet again on the basis of the Gang’s perjury in 2002, I had I thought long left Cyril et al behind. I had a surprise. As I sat in Caernarfon Police Station under arrest, I was told by the Sgt that because I Had A History Of Mental Illness, I would have to have An Appropriate Adult in my interview. I told him not to be so bloody ridiculous, I had two degrees and (at that time) a job as a teacher. The Sgt insisted; it was the Rules! The Sgt told me that an Appropriate Adult had been called. Imagine my surprise when Cyril walked into the interview room. I told Cyril to leave, immediately. He refused. The Sgt refused to kick him out. So I told the Sgt, in front of Cyril, of every bit of dirt and wrongdoing that Cyril had been involved in of which I knew. Cyril fled. The Sgt didn’t stop his exit.

I asked how on earth Cyril had been called to the Police Station. I was told by the Sgt that ‘the Advocates now hold the contract in north Wales for providing appropriate adults in police interviews, it’s a Safeguard’. I did not have time to investigate exactly how that situation ever developed, I spent the next two years trying to keep myself out of prison after all Safeguards failed.

 

Previous posts have discussed how George Melly offered an underaged boy money to have sex with him when Melly went to perform a gig at Theatre Gwynedd in Bangor in the late 1970s. The boy told F and F was appalled and openly discussed the matter, including with members of the Caring Professions. The boy whom George Melly wanted to have sex with was the son of a prison officer who was violent to the boy; the boy ended up as one of Dafydd’s drugs patients… George Melly purchased a country property near Brecon.

See previous posts for info on Hutchison, Lord Lambton, Stowe School and its former pupils, Perry, Melly etc…

See also previous posts for details of the saga involving Graham Ovenden’s work over many years and the robust campaign to defend it launched by Lord Hutchison and his mates…

 

Fat Pang served as the Tory MP for Bath, 1979-92. Fat Pang was the Brains behind much Tory Party organising and campaigning as discussed in previous posts. Cecil Parkinson’s mistress Sara Keays’s dad Col Hastings Keays lived in Bath – Sara moved back in with him after Cecil dropped her on the spot after her pregnancy caused red faces for his colleagues – and was appalled at the way in which his daughter was treated by the Tory Party machine, as well as the smears published by the Tory-supporting press, including the Daily Mail. Peregrine Worsthorne and Bill Deedes were very powerful figures in the Tory media at the time. Both knew of Dafydd, Gwynne and the Westminster Paedophile Ring; Bill Deedes, a long-standing personal friend of Denis and Thatch, had served as a Tory MP in Macmillan’s Cabinet. Deedes knew those in the Cabinet who were personal friends of Gwynne and Dafydd and he knew Edward du Cann. See ‘Shurely Shome Mishtake’.

Col Keays was mocked for being a Sir Herbert Gussett, but some of the old rural Tories (including my father) did not realise how low those leading that Party in the 1980s had sunk. Thatch successfully sold herself to small businessmen and farmers as being For Them; they had no idea of the troughing, the crime and the systematic shafting of small businesspeople to benefit massive multinationals (like Lonrho) run by crooks.

Fat Pang’s wife, Lady Lavender Patten, is an old friend of Peter Hain and campaigned with him in the Anti-Apartheid Movement in the 1970s. Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate David Ennals and his brother John both served as Chairmen of AAM, Mr Thrope was a keen supporter as were many others on the left who were part of Dafydd’s network. David Ennals spent the 1970s and 80s serving MIND in various capacities and also concealed organised abuse in Norfolk. Ennals reached his zenith when he was appointed Secretary of State of the DHSS under Callaghan. Mary Wynch was arrested and imprisoned on Ennals’ watch. Ennals had been cluttering up the DHSS since Swinging Richard Crossman was Secretary of State, 1968-70. See post ‘The Science Of Animal Behaviour’. Martin Ennals, the Third Ennals Brother, was for years the Secretary General of Amnesty International.

David Ennals’s son Sir Paul Martin Ennals is Chair of Haringey Local Safeguarding Children board (LSCB), South Tyneside LSCB, Gateshead LSCB and Sunderland LSCB. He also Chairs the Safeguarding Adult Boards of Gateshead, South Tyneside and Sunderland. Sir Paul was previously Chief Executive of the United Kingdom’s National Children’s Bureau (NCB) a post he took up in 1998. The NCB was infiltrated by paedophiles as long ago as the 1970s. Prior to his role at the NCB, Sir Paul was Director of education and employment for the  RNIB. He was Vice-Chairman of the Gov’ts National Advisory Group on SEN, 1997-2001, Chairman of the Council for Disabled Children 1993–98 and founder Chairman of the Special Educational Consortium.

In 2000 Paul Ennals Chaired an independent review of pre-schools and playgroups funded by the DfES. He Chaired the DfES/Dept of Health working group which produced the guidance on disabled children aged birth to three years Together from the Start in 2002, which was the precursor to the Early Support Programme. Paul served on the Department of Health Strategy Group for the Children’s National Service Framework and Chaired the group which produced the core standards. In 2003 Paul Ennals Chaired the Task Group making recommendations on children and young people for the Public Health White Paper.

How refreshing that Paul Ennals, the son of Dafydd’s old mate, began running the UK’s school system just as I qualified as a teacher. Lord Ennals himself had sadly passed over, all of a sudden, from pancreatic cancer back on 17 June 1995, some three weeks before Bing Spear and Peter Morrison died.

Paul Ennals was Chairman of the Children’s Workforce Development Council from 2009 until its closure in 2012. CWDC represented the interests of employers and employees working with children in early years, social care, and related settings. Sir Paul currently chairs the Voluntary Organisations Network North East (VONNE), Fareshare Northeast, and the Fulfilling Lives Strategic Board. Ennals is Vice-Chair of Ways to Wellness.

Brenda knighted Paul, Son Of Dafydd And Gwynne’s Friend, in her 2009 Birthday Honours.

Lavender Patten was/is a Patron of Prof Mark Williams’s Oxford Mindfulness Centre, Mindfulness being the fraud perpetrated by Williams when he worked with the Gang in Bangor in the late 1980s (see post ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot’). Williams went public on the Miracle of Mindfulness just after Wood et al were screaming at me in 1986 to leave north Wales and never return. After Williams relocated to Oxford from Bangor, he continued to oversee the Mindfulness Centre at Bangor University. The names of key members of the Gang are all over the early Mindfulness publications.

Mindfulness took off when Eric Sunderland was Principal/VC of Bangor and became the flavour of the month when Roy Evans was VC. It was when Roy was VC that the Mindfulness Centre was established and pandered to by the University. Mark Williams scarpered to Oxford when it became clear that Merfyn was about to become VC. By then it was well-known in north Wales that Mindfulness was a flagrant con perpetrated by the Gang while their patients were found dead constantly, but Williams had backing from Parliament in a truly extraordinary way. The Parliament arm of Mark Williams Scams plc was led by Chris Ruane, a north Wales Labour MP who was a former teacher in north Wales. See previous posts.

Mark Williams launched his con after I left Bangor. When I returned to Bangor University for teacher training and then my PhD, Williams was taking the world by storm, backed by familiar forces. A few genuine Buddhists were saying ‘This is a con, it is not what meditation is supposed to be about…’ They did raise their voices and were met with outrage and aggression from Williams’s corner. See earlier posts.

Fat Pang was Chancellor of Oxford University when Lavender was Patron of the Mindfulness Centre there. Oxford employed Mark Williams in the Dept of Psychiatry, as well as Tom Burns who had been Of The Gang at St George’s until he joined Williams at Oxford. As discussed in previous posts, I detailed Dafydd’s and Gwynne’s activities to Tom Burns in 189/90; he told me that he believed me, he knew that this was happening, that psychiatry attracts ‘disturbed people’ and that this was a big problem…

Richard Tranter arrived to work at the Hergest Unit with the Gang in the early 1990s from Oxford. Tranter is a psychopharmacologist. The excessive drugs scene thrived at Oxford University in the 1980s when Richard was a student there. The med students were involved in the Class A excess, because they could get the drugs and provide advice in cases of overdose.

 

Brenda offered Angus Ogilvy an earldom on his wedding, which he declined. The self-denying Angus also rejected a grace-and-favour apartment at one of the Royal palaces. Instead, Ogilvy leased Thatched House Lodge in Richmond from the Crown Estate for him and Princess Alexandra to live in, where she still lives today. Princess Alexandra retained an apartment at St James’s Palace, which is customary for the Royal Family. So presumably Alexandra let Angus kip on the sofa there now and again if he was too drunk to drive back to Richmond. Richmond was the site of the paedophile ring linked to the other rings, a major player being Louis Minster, the Director of Richmond Social Services and an active paedophile. The notorious Elm Guest House that was used as a VIP paedophiles’ knocking shop by Cyril Smith and, it is alleged Leon Brittan, was near Richmond. Peter Morrison was also known to be busy in the Richmond area.

Dr Alice Levinson worked as a Registrar at St George’s; she was one of those who refused to treat me after reading the documentation written by her boss Robin Jacobson admitting that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that he suspected that Tony Francis was too. Jacobson documented that Dafydd had trained with Bob Hobson at the Maudsley; Jacobson also inexplicably mentioned Dafydd’s age. I later realised that this was code for ‘He was one of Hobson’s team when Hobson was running the ring from the Maudsley..’ Jacobson also documented that Dafydd had told him on the phone that I was ‘attractive and seductive’.

From the moment that Jacobson sent that letter and CC’d it to everyone, I was untouchable. Staff refused to speak to me and constantly repeated that I would not be receiving any care in London and would have to go back to north Wales because Dafydd was my doctor and knew me. I had no idea of the existence of the letter at the time… See post ‘Some Very Eminent Psychiatrists From London…’

Alice Levinson trained at Tommy’s. She now has a private psychotherapy practice in Richmond and trains and supervises other psychotherapists, including at PhD level.

Zac Goldsmith, son of Fatty’s former boss Sir Jams, was elected as the Tory MP for Richmond in 2010, after being placed on Call Me Dave’s A list of candidates. Call Me Dave was at Oxford when the Class A drugs excess was at its best and his mum was an Oxford magistrate. The Oxford magistrates let off the most serious offenders involved in the 1986 death of Olivia Channon, daughter of Thatch’s Cabinet Minister Paul Channon. See post ‘Is The Party Over Yet?’

Paul Channon was a member of the Guinness family – Sabrina is Carlo’s ex  – Sabrina is now married to playwright Tom Stoppard (Tom got together with Sabrina after splitting up with Felicity Kendal of the Famous Buttocks), who was formerly married to Dr Miriam, who began life as an Angel in Newcastle, found out what Gwynne and Dafydd’s partner gang was up to and rapidly became not just Dr Miriam but Celebrity Dr Miriam. Miriam is the Aunty of Baroness Oona King from the Mean Streets of Holland Park School, where she was mates with Uncle Harry’s nephews. See previous posts.

When I lived in Somerset, Tom Stoppard was always in the Western Daily Press; I thought that he lived in Bristol or Bath, but I have now discovered that:

Stoppard left school at seventeen and began work as a journalist for the western Daily Press in Bristol. Years later, he came to regret not going to university, but at the time he loved his work as a journalist and felt passionately about his career. He worked at the paper from 1954 until 1958, when the Bristol Evening World offered Stoppard the position of feature writer, humour columnist, and secondary drama critic, which took Stoppard into the world of theatre. At the Bristol Old Vic – at the time a well-regarded regional rep company – Stoppard formed friendships with director John Boorman and actor Peter O’Toole early in their careers. In Bristol, he became known more for his strained attempts at humour and unstylish clothes than for his writing.

That must have been manna from heaven for D.G.E. Wood, Gwynne and Dafydd… Tom down in Bristol near Edward du Cann, Mr Thrope etc.

Zac’s sister Jemima was married to Imran Kahn who was feted by Bradford University and became their Chancellor when the trafficking in Bradford was massive and operating unhindered. Bradford University were colluding with the ring, especially the Health and Warfare Dept. There were huge problems in the Health and Warfare Dept at Bradford which were concealed by the University authorities as described in previous posts.

Earlier in his career, Richmond Social Services paedophile Louis Minister had worked as a social worker under social work manager Barbara Kahan, when she was a senior manager in Oxfordshire Social Services. Babs and her husband child psychiatrist Dr Vladimir Kahan facilitated organised abuse in Oxfordshire for years. Babs was appointed an advisor for children’s social work to Keith Joseph when Joseph was Secretary of State for the DHSS under Grocer Heath. Joseph was an MP for Leeds aka Savile Central. Joseph’s time in Gov’t went back as far as Macmillan. Joseph was involved with the deals with du Cann et al. Keith Joseph was appointed Education Secretary by Thatch days before I arrived for Freshers Week at UCNW. When Brown and I wrote to Joseph about student finance, Joseph’s (very rude) reply made it clear that he knew that Brown and I were good friends. We had written to him separately from different universities and had not mentioned each other in our letters.

Could John Biffen have been busy?

 

Angus and Alexandra Ogilvy had two children, James (born in 1964) and Marina (born in 1966). When younger, Princess Marina was the subject of dreadful backstabbing tabloid articles written by the Glendas, proffering sisterly advice eg. Marina didn’t need to hide away JUST BECAUSE SHE WAS PREGNANT AND UNMARRIED or she could have worn white at her wedding EVEN THOUGH SHE WASN’T A VIRGIN, NO-ONE MINDS THESE DAYS MARINA LOVE…

See the source image

 

The Glendas did of course all know about Gwynne and Dafydd, including Ann Leslie – for many years of the Express, owned by Sir Jocelyn Stevens who, along with his long-term mistress Dame Vivien Duffield, had many connections to Dafydd and Gwynne’s wider network (see ‘Sex, Lies and No Democracy’) – who comes from a family with a number of Top Doctors in it. The profiles of the First Ladies Of Fleet Street written by younger Glendas marvelling at their ability to hide weapons in their bras and freeze the Cap’n Bobs in their tracks with a hard stare are nonsense. They are all ruthless women navigating their way through an industry dominated by people who’ll stop at nothing to achieve their ends.

None of them of any gender would if it was inconvenient.

Angus Ogilvy – Crazee Name, Crazee Guy – was created a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order on 31 December 1988 by Brenda. In the 1997 New Years Honours, Angus was made a Privy Counsellor, to celebrate the opening of the Waterhouse Inquiry and the discovery of the dead body of Ann Hills, the long-term mistress of Lord Snowdon, on the roof of her London penthouse. Ann had Committed Suicide, which was why she was discovered in a kneeling position dressed in party gear after taking ‘an overdose’ of over-the-counter tablets that could not have possibly killed her in the time or the manner claimed. Ann’s dad, Top Doc gynaecologist Elliot Philipp, a cousin of Sigmund Freud as well as a facilitator of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, told the inquest of Ann’s slapperish tendencies and her Mental Instability, as evidenced by an overdose as an 18 year old decades previously. Dr Philipp stressed that although his daughter was a slapper, at least she was a slapper with the right people, such as Lord S.

Ann was found dead days before Patient F and I went on trial after the perjury of the Gang – on that occasion the Angel Bridget Lloyd was the stooge who followed orders to lie her arse off to the police – was supposed to have resulted in me being detained in a secure unit. Whoops, the lies were so many and so inconsistent that the case fell apart once more.

For the full sad story re Ann Hills, see post ‘Error Of Judgement?’

Ann’s inquest was conducted by that old warhorse Dr Paul Knapman, the St George’s trained Top Doc who for decades was wheeled out for all difficult cases, including Lord Lucan’s nanny Sandra Rivett and Di and Dodi until the Di and Dodi job was passed onto Lord Thomas Scott Baker, an even safer pair of hands. When I worked in London, I was told openly that Knapman was ‘corrupt’. See previous posts.

After his business career ended in disgrace – Tiny Rowland lived to fight another day, he bounced back as many times as Edward du Cann – Ogilvy had to ‘throw himself’ into charidee work.

Angus served as Chairman of Youth Clubs UK, the biggest non-uniformed youth organisation in Britain and was Patron of Arthritis Care.

Ogilvy was Vice-Patron of the National Children’s Home (NCH). The NCH became infiltrated by paedophiles; Glanville Owen who in the mid-1980s was appointed as Lucille’s Hughes’s Deputy in Gwynedd and who never noticed anything amiss in the kids’ homes for which he was responsible previously worked for the NCH. George Thomas was Patron of NCH and Thomas’s friend Thatch was a big fan of NCH as well. My post ‘An Expression Of Their Faith’ discussed a speech that Thatch made in tribute to George Thomas, the NCH and their shared Methodism; as Thatch stressed, the NCH was established by Methodists. After the business of the child abusers, such was the tainting of the brand that NCH renamed itself Action For Children.

Abuse at the NCH went back a long way. Brian Roycroft, the Director of Newcastle Social Services who had a grand business partnership with Dafydd and Gwynne, grew up in the NCH at Frodsham in Cheshire; Roycroft wasn’t a kid in care, his parents were NCH houseparents at the (enormous) NCH Frodsham establishment. Roycroft and his mum and dad moved into the NCH at Frodsham and them moved into other NCH establishments, where they also moved in with the kids… See post ‘He Was Looking At I In A Funny Way…’

Little wonder that the Gang in north Wales/Cheshire had a staff and kiddie exchange scheme going with the big ring in the North East.

One of the Churchill women was involved with the NCH.

Angus Ogilvy was Chairman of the Advisory Council of The Prince’s Trust; inevitable really. The Prince’s Trust has served as a home for many of the most important Gang members/supporters, including Carlo’s close friend Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor aka the Duke Of Westminster and Huw Vaughan Thomas, who succeeded Ioan Bowen Rees as Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council in 1991 but did nothing to stop the ring or the associated criminality.

Ogilvy was also a Trustee of the Leeds Castle Foundation, as well as being a member of the governing Council of Business in the Community, and of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. Angus was also a member of the Royal Company of Archers, the Sovereign’s Bodyguard in Scotland, in which his father served as one of its four lieutenants.

Angus suffered from throat cancer in later years, so he may well have been a pipe smoker; those at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund (ICRF) of which Angus was President for many years could have explained the association between pipe smoking and throat cancer to Angus. Angus’s last public appearance with his wife was when he accompanied her to Thailand for an official tour.

Ogilvy died on 26 December 2004. His funeral took place at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on 5 January 2005. He was buried at the Royal Burial Ground, Frogmore at Windsor.

Extracts from Angus Ogilvy’s obituary in ‘The Guardian’, written by Tom Corby, provides further information:

Sir Angus Ogilvy, who has died at the age of 76 after treatment for cancer and pneumonia, was a man of honourable intentions whose business career was blighted by his involvement in the 1973 Lonrho trade sanctions breach scandal. The affair was described by the then prime minister, Edward Heath, as “the unpleasant and unacceptable face of capitalism”.

In the following years Ogilvy devoted much of his time and energy to good causes, and was notable for his support of his wife, Princess Alexandra, one of the most popular members of the royal family, in her official duties.

The Department of Trade’s report into the London and Rhodesia Mining and Land Company (Lonrho) said that he had been “negligent” as a director and had shown “weakness and indecision” in failing to restrain the aggressive management style of RW “Tiny” Rowland (obituary, July 27 1998), whom he had recruited as chief executive to revitalise the company. Ogilvy and others involved with Rowland suffered from association with business practices regarded as offensive to conservative City interests.

Angus didn’t just meet Rowland at a few dinner parties a la Fiona Woolf and Leon Brittan; Angus headhunted Tiny Rowland in 1961-62 and not just to clean the bogs. Rowland had been in Southern Rhodesia managing a tobacco farm at Eiffel Flats, Mashonaland West province and was living with Irene Smith, the wife of a business partner, when Angus asked him to join Lonrho as Chief Exec. Angus then worked alongside Rowland for 10 years, he knew the nature of Tiny’s business practices and was on board with them.

Ogilvy believed the report was unfair, but he felt obliged to resign his Lonrho directorship, and all 16 of his other City appointments as “the only honourable thing to do”.

The Lonrho Affair was such a big scandal that any future business interests of Ogilvy would be under constant scrutiny and company’s could have been at risk simply from having him involved.

Several companies, including the Rank Organisation and the property group MEPC, refused to let him go, and he retained a few directorships. Later he joined GEC and Sotheby’s.

So Angus DID hang on after being condemned by the DTI and a Tory PM…

I know someone who was wrecked by Edward du Cann who worked for the Rank Organisation; I will investigate further.

His retreat from the City mainstream was seen as a great loss to the business world, to which he had given more than 20 years of hard work and loyalty. As a businessman, he had personal flaws: an accepting, trusting nature, a hatred of rows, and a tendency to concentrate on immediate concerns rather than take the long view.

No honest businessman let alone a gentle natured soul would ever have worked with either Tiny Rowland or du Cann, they would have just gone as the scale of their wrongdoing became evident. Honest people ran as fast as they could in the opposite direction when those two crooks made an appearance.

In 1989 he was appointed a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order, an honour in the gift of the Queen, and to him and the establishment this signified that the cloud over his professional life had at last been lifted.

1989. I was lured into the trap of a job at St George’s Hospital Medical School, with Geoffrey Chamberlain’s team. Chamberlain was facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring and was mates with, among many others, Sir George Pinker, the Royal Gynaecologist who delivered William and Harry. Oinker’s dismissal of Diana’s  distress and mismanagement of William’s delivery resulted in William being lucky not to have lost a few hundred thousand brain cells. See post ‘Wimmin’s Wellbeing – The Fortnum and Mason Connection’. Chamberlain was working in partnership with the Gang and knew Gwynne the Lobotomist, but I’m not sure how well.

In 1997 he was made a Privy Counsellor…

The year in which Ronnie opened his Inquiry which would leave no stone unturned. I was expected to be banged up in a secure unit days after the Inquiry opened, but one drawback of relying on grossly incompetent people to perjure themselves is that Cunning Plans can unravel. As Bridget Lloyd knows.

and after university was talent-spotted by the financier Harold Drayton, who at the time headed a group of successful trusts. He was appointed a director of the Drayton Group in 1956, and once held 50 directorships, many with Drayton associated companies.

In 1961, he met Rowland and, impressed by his approach, persuaded Drayton to finance the expansion of Rowland’s business, mainly concerned with concessionary interests in what was then Rhodesia. Ogilvy believed Rowland could reinvigorate Lonhro, then part of Drayton, and under Rowland’s thrusting leadership

[Shurely ruthless dishonesty? Ed]

the company grew into an international conglomerate.

The bubble burst in 1973

When they were caught

with a boardroom row centred on Rowland’s management style and the company’s financial organisation. The feud went to the courts, prompting Heath’s verdict, and a Department of Trade investigation.

In 1963, Ogilvy married Princess Alexandra, the daughter of Prince George, Duke of Kent, and Princess Marina of Greece. Prince George, who was killed in a second world war aircraft crash, had been the youngest surviving son of King George V and Queen Mary.

Ogilvie and his bride had known each other for eight years, and had shared friends and interests;

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

their Westminster Abbey wedding attracted national attention, and it suggested the new possibility of a more informal style for royalty.

Ogilvy had made it clear that he had no intention of ascending into the ranks of supernumerary royalty and wished to remain a commoner, but the marriage imposed new social demands and with them, financial pressures that drove him to achieve. A friend remarked: “All this fuelled his natural tendency to be a workaholic.” He was soon afflicted with a gastric ulcer, a price other male outsiders have paid for entry into the royal circle.

The gastric ulcer as a manifestation of stress is a theory that has been challenged…

Ogilvy was later quoted as saying: “It was financial brinkmanship. I was always determined that my wife would fulfil her duties only in the best and most proper style.”

See the source image

In the first year of marriage he bought, from the crown, on a mortgage, the lease of Thatched House Lodge, in Richmond Park, having refused a grace and favour residence offered by the Queen. The considerable, for the times, asking price was £150,000.

But his wife had that apartment at St James’s Palace in which they could doss down in emergencies.

The couple’s son, James, who later had an appropriate marriage and career, was born in 1964, and their daughter Marina, whose life style became less appropriate, in 1966.

She is a talented musician, but was largely unknown to the public, appearing only in the background when the royal family were at their most tribal at weddings, Christmas and Easter. But that changed in 1990, when she broke the news that she was pregnant by her photographer boyfriend, the son of a jazz trumpeter. She compounded her family’s distress by selling an emotional account of their reaction to a tabloid.

Who willingly paid good money for it Glenda.

Flogging that story won’t have been a good idea, but the Top Docs who were concealing the activities of Princess Marina’s extended family were forging documents, perjuring themselves, whipping up hate campaigns, leaning on universities and employers, paying criminals to lie about third parties and the Glendas wrote not a word of outrage…

Yet Ogilvy, with every sign of affection, gave her away when she married the boyfriend at a Surrey church that year. Later she was reconciled with her parents.

Who knows what terrible pressure was applied to whom by whom, what deals were done.

Ogilvy had great personal charm, unfailing courtesy, inquisitiveness, and a reputation for kindness.

Yet managed to work with notorious scumbags for so many years and not notice what they were doing.

Sometimes he gave the impression of being over-anxious, but to close friends he was a stimulating companion and conversationalist. 

He had recently been treated for throat cancer, but was able to attend a Golden Jubilee concert in the grounds of Buckingham Palace in June 2002…

He was President of the Imperial Cancer Research Fund (1964-94), Chairman of Youth Clubs UK (1969-89)…

Angus was President of the ICRF throughout the major research fraud funded by the ICRF and perpetrated by some of its researchers, in collaboration with the CRC, the Royal Marsden, the Institute for Cancer Research and the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford, with which the most senior scientists in ICRF were au fait. Tony Francis’s former colleague from Manchester University, Peter Maguire, was one of those funded by the CRC who was involved in the fraud. The fraud became public in 1990 and as a result one of the team, Prof Tim McElwain, committed suicide, or at least was found dead and was assumed to have killed himself. All the researchers involved, except for the dead Prof McElwain and a junior researcher who changed career, remained in research despite having been exposed and a number of them subsequently secured very eminent positions.

Clair Chilvers, who had led the fraud and who’s name appeared most often in the media, held a Chair at Nottingham University’s Medical School, then became a Mental Health Researcher, founded a Mental Health Charidee and was also appointed Chair of an NHS Trust in Nottingham.

See posts ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’.

and the Carr-Gomm Society, a halfway house for those with drug, drink or social problems…

Dafydd dominated all such provision in Wales at the time and was a big mate of most of those involved with such provision in other areas of the UK.

Some fascinating extracts from the Torygraph’s 1998 obituary of Tiny Rowland:

Rowland’s association with Lonrho – originally the London & Rhodesia Mining and Land Company – began in 1961. Lonrho was then a modest and almost moribund enterprise. One of the directors, Angus Ogilvy, was asked by Harley Drayton, a leading shareholder, to find someone to rejuvenate the company. He suggested Rowland, who was appointed joint managing director.

Why did Angus suggest Rowland, a man who’s business practices transpired to be so unpalatable, even to those not prone to criticising ruthless capitalism? How did Angus know/find Rowland?

The business expanded aggressively, particularly in mining. It diversified out of Rhodesia, where Rowland disliked the racist tone of Ian Smith’s regime.

Yet the busting of sanctions against Rhodesia was one of the factors that led to the Lonrho Affair in the 1970s, the Grocer’s condemnation of Lonrho in the House and the end of Ogilvy’s business career. Tiny Rowland was named as one of those responsible.

Rowland early established his habit of taking important decisions with little or no consultation with the Lonrho board. By 1970, however, the speed of expansion had begun to overstretch the company’s finances, while in South Africa Lonrho executives were accused of fraud. The accountants Peat Marwick were called in to report on the company.

In consequence, Rowland was obliged to bring in outside directors; these included, as chairman, the unmistakeably “Establishment” figure of Sir Basil Smallpeice, formerly of Cunard and BOAC, who wanted to change the company’s strategy and to force Rowland to be more open in his methods.

In 1972, Smallpeice attempted to oust Rowland, accusing him of recklessness, intolerance, disloyalty and deceit. But 3,000 shareholders packed an extraordinary general meeting at Central Hall, Westminster, in May 1973, and voted overwhelmingly in Rowland’s favour. Smallpeice and his group were jeered, and themselves ejected from the board. The findings of the subsequent Department of Trade inquiry, which censored Lonrho for flouting Rhodesian sanctions, prompted Edward Heath’s celebrated condemnation.

But thereafter there was no question of Rowland’s power being tempered by independent voices on the board. He once referred to non-executive directors as “Christmas tree decorations”.

From drab and anonymous headquarters in Cheapside, he presided as an autocrat over a conglomerate which grew to encompass some 800 businesses: newspapers, vehicle distribution, textiles, mines, hotels and many others. At its peak, in the late Eighties, Lonrho’s profits exceeded  £270 million.

Behind every great fortune there is a crime.
Balzac

The core of the company’s success remained in Africa. Rowland often spent three weeks in every month there, criss-crossing the continent by private jet. His methods were both robust – he employed a private army to protect plantations in Mozambique – and politically acute. He courted heads of state and, when he saw advantage, rebel leaders. Presidents Kaunda, Banda and later Mugabe were claimed as friends. Unita, in Angola, received his backing, and Oliver Tambo of the ANC had the use of Rowland’s aircraft.

Tiny, like Dafydd and Gwynne, did business with anyone, anyone at all. It’s just that the GMC were never established to regulate Tiny Rowland or told us that they upheld his standards.

Tiny was rumoured to have co-operated with MI6 re activities pertaining to post-colonial British foreign policy in Africa.

In 1996 President Nelson Mandela awarded Tiny the Order of Good Hope, the highest South African honour.

See the source image

Rowland relished backroom influence in high politics, and enjoyed close contacts with the British and American intelligence services.

His access to Anwar Sadat is thought to have helped to open the way to the Camp David agreement in 1978. He was rumoured to have had a hand in Lebanese hostage negotiations, and even in Falklands peace manoeuvres.

IF ROWLAND was unrivalled in his grasp of African business and politics, his touch elsewhere was less sure. His long battle for Harrods, for instance, was felt by many to have been a damaging distraction of his energies and an unjustifiable cost to Lonrho.

The saga began in 1977. Rowland had identified retailing as a potential boom sector, and perhaps believed that ownership of Harrods would provide a measure of respectability otherwise denied him in Britain.

Lonrho began buying shares in Scottish & Universal Trusts, the holding company of Sir Hugh Fraser’s family interests and the holder of 29 per cent of the store group House of Fraser, which owned Harrods. When the rest of Scottish & Universal was acquired by Lonrho the next year, City institutions closed ranks against Rowland. The subsequent battle for the House of Fraser was ferocious. Rowland’s anger was targeted particularly at the combative Fraser chairman, Professor Roland Smith, and the unfortunate Sir Hugh Fraser – whom he had initially courted as an ally but whom he later helped to ruin by revelations about gambling debts.

Professor Sir Roland Smith was a Cheshire-based tycoon who was associated with Liverpool University and UMIST as a student/teacher. His early career resulted in Smith knowing Val Duncan and Mark Turner, the leaders of Rio Tinto Zinc, the company that owned Anglesey Aluminium, for years the biggest employer on Anglesey. Anglesey Aluminium employed Liz Stables as the company Angel for years, immediately prior to Liz joining the Student Health Centre at UCNW and assisting Gwynne and Wood with their trafficking business. Liz continued to enjoy close relationships with many of her old mates from Anglesey Aluminium long after she left their employment. I have no idea if Anglesey Aluminium were breaking Health and Safety legislation, but Liz would have been the witness if they were. Liz who was mates with Dafydd…

Gwynne and Dafydd were well-in there! Rio Tinto Zinc, a huge international mining company!

My particular interest in Roland Smith is his time at the top of the tree in the MDU, while the MDU were party to such serious criminality. See eg. ‘Gwlad y Menig Gwynion’.

Roland was appointed Chairman of British Aerospace in 1987, immediately after the Westland Affair, the civil war that took place in the Tory Cabinet, 1985-86, over a small ailing helicopter company near Yeovil. A girl who knew me from Somerset, Janet Mitchell, worked as an engineer there at the time. Janet’s husband had previously worked for the Bridgwater company of which my grandfather was Chairman. Janet knew some of what had happened to me in north Wales, but more saliently, Michael Heseltine did, as did Heseltine’s mate Westminster Swinger Sir Anthony Meyer who’s constituency was close to Denbigh and Bryn Estyn. Sir Anthony’s constituency contained Broughton, a company that, like Westland, manufactured parts for aircraft. Well Heseltine wanted to be PM and Sir Anthony wanted that as well and then there was Paddy Pantsdown and Westland was on his turf and Paddy was working for the security services ensuring that Mr Thrope was safe and well. There were the relevant MEPs to consider as well and the Church because Janet knew about the Rev Rigg, the sex offending vicar of Bawdrip, but Janet had got married in Bawdrip Church and Rigg had conducted the service and the photos were lovely… Janet’s dad worked at Bridgwater College and he knew those lecturers there who were facilitating the ring in Bridgwater linked to the Gang in north Wales…

Janet’s dad Fred might have paid a terrible price for that, Fred Sims dropped dead very suddenly, as I remember he was chatting on the phone and just keeled over. Mrs Sims could well have been vulnerable re Top Docs as well because in about 1977 Mrs Sims was done for shoplifting – she was innocent, but the affair left her a nervous wreck and Top Docs were needed. The Top Docs who were ensuring that the Rev Rigg not only remained a free man but continued to have access to children. Well Rigg’s family were judges and barristers you see and he had previously been kicked out of his parish in Lincoln for molesting and they’re posh in Lincoln.

So there was a great deal at stake when Heseltine decided that Defending British Interests re Westland could result in him becoming PM.

The Westland Affair very nearly brought down Thatch. No-one could understand why the Windbag did not make more of Thatch’s precarious position; even Thatch told people that she might not still be PM by the end of the day.

Oh Thatch needn’t have worried, it was the Windbag, friend of Tony Francis and Dafydd and Gwynne, he couldn’t do a bloody thing.

Everyone wanted rid of Thatch, but they just couldn’t do it, it was terrible, the Tories, the Biased Press, the Anti-Union legislation, the Unfair Voting System, ooh dearie me…

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

For details of the many who benefited from the Westland Affair, big and small potatoes, see ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’ and ‘A Legend Lives’.

Roland Smith stood down as Chairman of British Aerospace in 1991, after my career and the careers of other witnesses had been destroyed and Roland immediately joined the Court of the Bank of England. By 1991, the Toffs had arrived in Fiddington and Bridgwater for their social life and one of their number was Tommy Leigh-Pemberton, son of Robin Leigh-Pemberton, Guv’nor of the Bank of England, 1983-93, who became Lord Kingsdown in 1993, the year in which Lord Kenyon and his molesting son Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon had both died by the Spring.

Robin Leigh-Pemberton was a barrister and a member of Inner Temple, who practised 1954-60. Like Robin, Mr Thrope became a member of Inner Temple in 1954. The Three Members of The Havers Family, Sir Cecil, Lord Michael and Lord Elizabeth, who have loyally served the Westminster Paedophile Ring for many decades were all members of Inner Temple.

Robin L-P was appointed to the Board of the National Westminster Bank in 1972 and became Chairman in 1977. Robin Leigh-Pemberton also served on the Board of Directors of the BIS, the Bank of International Settlements

The BIS is owned by central banks and “fosters international monetary and financial cooperation and serves as a bank for central banks”. The BIS carries out its work through its meetings, programmes and through the Basel Process, hosting international groups pursuing global financial stability and facilitating their interaction. It also provides banking services, but only to central banks and other international organizations. The BIS is based in Basel, Switzerland, with representative offices in Hong Kong and Mexico City.

The BIS hosts the Secretariat of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and with it has played a central role in establishing the Basel Capital Accords of 1988, Basel II framework in 2004 and more recently Basel III framework.

The present Chairperson of BIS is former adviser to Angela Merkel:

Previous posts discussed how, as Gordon Brown worked harder and harder to make life impossible for Merfyn when Merfyn was VC of Bangor University and resisting pressure to force me out of my job there, the Wrath Of The Bankers descended upon Merfyn, with Gordon orchestrating it. Lord Mervyn Davies, a banker who had grown up in Pwhelli with key members of the Gang, was appointed Chair of Bangor University Council and then became a Minister in Gordon’s Cabinet. That didn’t last long, Lord Mervyn and Gordon parted company but no-one knew why. Anyway, in 2012, after Merfyn stood down as VC, I was made redundant and I have been told since I began this blog that it was almost certainly something to do with Lord Mervyn… See previous posts.

So for reader’s interest, the Chairman of BIS during The Bankers Crapping On Merfyn Years, March 2010-Oct 2015, was Christian Noyer

Christian Noyer (born 6 October 1950) served as Governor of the Bank of France from 2003 to 2015. In this capacity, he Chaired the BIS, 2010-15. He had previously served as the first Vice President of the European Central Bank from 1998 to 2002.

Appointed to the Treasury in the Ministry of the Economy and Finance in 1976, Noyer subsequently spent two years in Brussels from 1980 to 1982 at France’s permanent representation to the European Communities. Back at the Treasury, he held a range of posts dealing with both domestic issues (government cash and debt management, banking affairs, financing of industry and state-owned enterprises) and international affairs (multilateral issues, export financing). In 1995, he became Chief of Staff to Finance Minister Jean Arthuis.

Noyer was appointed Governor of the Bank of France in 2003 by the then-President Jacques Chirac, and confirmed to serve a second term by Chirac’s successor Nicolas Sarkozy. During his tenure as Governor, Noyer was also Chairman of the Autorité de contrôle prudentiel et de résolution (ACPR – the French Prudential Supervision and Resolution Authority for banks and insurance). Noyer also Chaired the supervisory boards of the Institut d’émission des départements d’Outre-Mer (IEDOM) and the Institut d’émission d’Outre-Mer (IEOM), the French overseas note-issuing central banks.

In 2016, Noyer was appointed by the French Gov’t to serve on a task force mandated with leading efforts to attract business from London in the wake of Brexit. He also led France’s successful bid to relocate the European Banking Authority to Paris in 2017.

In 2018, the French Treasury asked Noyer to study all possible options to reorganize Crédit Mutuel Arkéa, part France’s fifth-biggest lender Groupe Crédit Mutuel.

Lord Kingsdown’s son Tommy Leigh-Pemberton came to a sticky end some 30 yrs ago in Nairobi when he was shot dead as he partook of his favourite sport of zooming past a particular embassy at speed after being warned that if he did it one more time he’d be shot. He did it once more and he was shot. Tommy was a twat of the highest order with a fondness for Class As, but although I read the ‘newsletter’ that was sent to Tommy’s mates with an account of the circumstances of his death. it has only recently occurred to me that Tommy might have been murdered for political reasons and a cover story issued.

Tommy’s dad Robin was the personal choice of Thatch as Guv’nor of the Bank of England and the appointment was so controversial that it was announced on the day before Christmas Eve to attract as little of an outcry as possible. Robin Leigh-Pemberton was at the wheel of the Bank of England on Black Wednesday 16 Sept 1992 when the economy fell off a cliff and no-one in John Major’s Gov’t knew why it had happened or what to do, not even Chancellor Lamont’s Bright Young SPAD David Cameron. Sarah Hogg who was Head of John Major’s Policy Unit at No 10 just blamed everyone else.

The Hoggs have been enthusiastic supporters of Dafydd and Gwynne’s criminality for generations; Quintin began it all back in the Time Of Gwynne; then Quintin’s son Douglas joined the party as a colluding Home Officer Minister; Douglas’s wife Sarah stuck her oar in whenever possible; Douglas’s sister Dame Mary exerted influence via her role as a Lady Judge and the latest in the long line of Hoggs, Charlotte, also took a pop at Merfyn when he was being undermined in his role as VC in Charlotte’s capacity as a bigwig at Santander. See previous posts…

By the end of his term as Guv’nor of the Bank of England, Lord Kingsdown was best described as Brown did: ‘a bloody crook’.

Tommy’s brother, James Leigh-Pemberton, continues the family’s association with the Carlo and the Duchy of Cornwall (Robin Leigh-Pemberton was the Duchy’s Chancellor) as the Duchy’s Receiver-General. The Hon. Sir James Henry Leigh-Pemberton (born 10 December 1956) is a banker like his dad and served/serves as the Executive Chairman of UK Financial Investments. James started his career at S. G. Warburg & Co before becoming an MD at Credit Suisse, Investment Banking in London. On 7 July 2008 James was appointed CEO of Credit Suisse’s businesses in the UK.

James is a Trustee of the Duke of Cornwall Benevolent fund and The Royal Collection Trust.

James was appointed Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (CVO) in Brenda’s 2013 Birthday Honours. Brenda followed that up when she knighted James in the 2019 New Year Honours. Bless! James, his brother Tommy and dad Robin had been discussed on this blog by then. Keep it up Brenda, you systematically dishing out gongs to everyone as they are named on this blog as being linked to serious crime will soon have the honours system scrapped after being declared utterly worthless.

Tommy and James’s brother, Jeremy Leigh-Pemberton, is a Deputy Lieutenant of Kent and is the parish Chairman for the neighbouring parish of Wormshill.

Between 1977 and 1984 Lord Kingsdown served as Pro-Chancellor of Chancellor of Kent University.

 

The rest of the world probably knows Professor Sir Roland Smith best as the man who became Chairman of Manchester United in 1991. But I don’t, in 1991 I was far too busy being forced out of my job, left with no income and trying not to be jailed on the basis of the perjury of Top Docs who were assisted by the MDU. David Beckham’s professional club career began with Manchester United, where he made his first-team debut in 1992 at age 17, arriving at Man U shortly after Roland became Chairman. Perhaps Posh and Becks could tell us why a pair of dim, shameless, talentless opportunists like them became so filthy rich and none of the dirt that their associates wallowed in was ever thrown their way by the media.

Why might that have been Posh? The other Spices have all landed in it except for you and just look at the recent revelations re football…

Brenda knighted Roland in 1992.

 

When victory seemed to be in sight for Lonrho, the Government blocked the takeover on grounds of national interest. Lonrho’s shares were then, according to Rowland, “parked” temporarily with the Fayeds. According to the Egyptian brothers, the shares had been sold to them outright; in any case they used them as a springboard to acquire the House of Fraser before the Government’s decision against Lonrho could be reversed.

Rowland responded with a campaign to discredit the Fayeds and their alleged backer, the Sultan of Brunei. This was conducted through the pages of the Observer, which Lonrho had acquired in 1981, and by long, trenchant letters to ministers and public figures.

In 1989 a secret Department of Trade report, highly critical of the Fayed takeover, was leaked by the Observer in a special mid-week edition headlined The Phoney Pharoah. But despite a continuing barrage of litigation, control of the store eluded Rowland. This cast a shadow over his last years.

Rowland never hesitated to flex his proprietorial muscle at the Observer. When he fell out with Daniel arap Moi of Kenya, the paper ran exposes of corruption which named the President. When reporting of atrocities in Matabeleland displeased him, he threatened to sell the paper to Robert Maxwell.

All Rowland’s corporate battles had a dark personal edge. “He’s a very hard man. He’s the sort of enemy no one wants to have,” the wife of one adversary remarked.

The girlfriend of another substantial adversary is no longer with us to offer an opinion.

See the source image

Rowland’s most merciless victory was over the Australian tycoon Alan Bond, whom he at first befriended as a potential “white knight” when Lonrho was being stalked by another predator, Asher Edelman. Bond bought out Edelman’s stake, boasted of himself as Rowland’s natural successor and continued buying up shares. Rowland turned on him with savage intensity, publishing a 93-pagedocument claiming that Bond, sustained by a fragile pyramid of borrowings, was technically insolvent. Bond’s bankers demanded their money back, and he found himself facing bankruptcy and jail.

BUT IN 1991 serious cracks began to appear in Lonrho’s impenetrable facade. The dividend was cut and the share price tumbled. A billion pounds worth of debt forced a shedding of assets. The lucrative Volkswagen Audi franchise was sold and, ever unpredictable, Rowland offered part of his hotel interests to his arch-enemies, the Fayeds.

Most controversially, a £177 million stake in the Metropole Hotels group was sold to the Libyan government, just when the United Nations was considering sanctions against Libya in connection with the Lockerbie bombing. “To me, Gaddafi is a super friend,” Rowland explained. “Don’t talk to me about morality and proper behaviour. I pay my taxes here. Gaddafi and Lonrho are a perfect fit.”

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

At 75, Rowland continued to defy his critics. The arrangements he made in December 1992 for the eventual sale of his own 15 per cent stake in Lonrho – to a little-known German property developer, Dieter Bock, at a price substantially higher than that which Rowland’s loyal band of small investors could hope to obtain – provoked a storm of hostile comment, coupled with speculation whether Bock (whom Rowland had only recently met) was his chosen successor, or was in some way being set up to be “flayed alive” (as one commentator put it) like Alan Bond.

This inscrutability and menace were at the heart of the City’s distrust of Tiny Rowland. He in turn trusted only his closest collaborators.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Fiercely loyal while they were with him, he was utterly unforgiving if they jumped ship.

Although capable of charm – and of kindness to fallen tycoons like Sir Freddie Laker – he had few friends, always suspecting venal motives. He eschewed the social trappings and foibles which his immense wealth (much of it hoarded in cash deposits) might have brought him. The intrigues of business and power occupied virtually the whole of his existence.

Rowland was born Roland Walter Fuhrop on November 27 1917, in a detention camp in India where his father, a German merchant, and his Anglo-Dutch mother, were held as aliens during the Great War. After the war, the family sought to settle in Britain, but were refused entry. They moved to Hamburg, where Roland joined the Hitler Youth. His father, though, lost his business through his anti-Nazi sentiments, and the family finally succeeded in moving to England.

Rowland was sent to Churchers College, at Petersfield. His first job after school was with a firm of shipping agents, for which he travelled widely.

In Berlin in 1939 he was jailed for eight weeks for associating with anti-Nazis, and that year he changed his surname, forming Rowland by inserting his middle initial into the first syllable of his Christian name…

His two elder brothers fought in the German army during the Second World War, but Rowland was enlisted in the Royal Army Medical Corps, and in 1940 served in Norway. However, when his parents were again interned, this time on the Isle of Man, Rowland refused to continue in the RAMC while they were detained.

He was discharged, and detained with his parents. His mother died in detention, and her treatment by the authorities was often cited as a cause of Rowland’s hostility to British officialdom.

Thereafter, Rowland took various jobs, including a spell as a porter at Paddington station and as a waiter at the Cumberland Hotel. After the war he sold refrigerators and car radios, and then in 1947 decided to emigrate, first to South Africa and then to Southern Rhodesia. He bought two farms and had interests in gold mines. He acquired the Mercedes franchise for Rhodesia, and became an agent for Rio Tinto Zinc.

Rio Tinto who owned Anglesey Aluminium. Liz Stables, the Angel at the Student Health Centre at UCNW who was facilitating the trafficking with Gwynne and D.G.E. Wood… formerly the Angel at Anglesey Aluminium. Liz’s old buddies at AA phoned her at the Student Health Centre daily and they would arrive at the Student Health Centre to visit her…

When Angus Ogilvy recruited him in 1961, Rowland’s own group of businesses, Shepton Estates, was exchanged for 1.5 million shares in Lonrho. The holding was the foundation of a personal fortune estimated to have reached £200 million by the late Eighties.

Always impeccably dressed and tanned, Rowland lived in discreet opulence with mansions in Buckinghamshire and Chester Square…

In 1967, Tiny Rowland married his god-daughter Josie Taylor, the daughter of his farm manager in Rhodesia. They had a son and three daughters.

Old Blue Eyes, as any fule kno, was reputed to have had Mafia connections.

Tiny Rowland

 

Tiny Rowland’s business partner Edward du Cann cluttered up the Commons until June 1987. The Gang’s Cunning Plan hatched in the early months of 1987 to frame and imprison me for a serious offence was supposed to have come to fruition immediately after the General Election of June 1987, but it unravelled in July when Sgt Morgan at Bangor Police Station and Jeff Crowther, a nursing officer at Ysbyty Gwynedd, didn’t tell as many lies as required. See post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’ Because the Windbag and Dr Death both deluded themselves that they would be in power after June 1987, all parties were colluding with the Gang’s Cunning Plan, including of course Plaid. The security services were working to keep Thatch in No 10 and du Cann will have known that. So he made himself scarce re politics, concentrating ‘on his business career’, fully expecting me to be in prison within the first few months of the Tories’ election victory.

Du Cann was Chair of the highly influential 1922 Committee of Tory backbenchers, 1972-84. Tim Renton will have been onside with du Cann, even after du Cann left the Commons, they couldn’t have survived without each other. I notice that Du Cann was Chair of the 1922 Committee until the year that I graduated when the Gang had moved in on me and WW III erupted after I complained about Gwynne. Whom du Cann had known from du Cann’s days as a junior Minister in Macmillan’s Govt, when he was a colleague of Dafydd and Gwynne’s mates in Mac’s Cabinet. See eg. posts ‘The Milk Street and Other Mafias’ and ‘Shurely Shome Mishtake’.

After standing down from the Commons in 1997 – here comes Fatty everyone! – Tim Renton was created a life peer on 9 June 1997 as Baron Renton of Mount Harry. Tim retired from the House on 14 April 2016.

Fatty’s first Ministerial post was given to him 1984

Fatty served as a PPS at MAFF, 1992-94. His boss was initially John Selwyn Gummer of the BSE-Burgers business. Gummer has held senior roles in the C of E for years, including on the General Synod. I am hoping to return to Gummer in a future post, there is much about Gummer than has not yet appeared on this blog. Gummer: I know!! Including about the BSE-cover up at Gov’t Chief Medical Officer level on the part of Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate Donald Acheson. Lie after lie fed to the general public. After Gummer, Fatty served under MAFF boss Gillian Shephard. Shephard’s substantial role in colluding with organised abuse in Norfolk, along with David Ennals, is detailed in ‘The Science Of Animal Behaviour’.

When Fatty was Minister of State for the Armed Forces, 1994-97, his Secretaries of State were Malcolm Rifkind and then Michael Portillo. Rifkind is a guilty man on many levels and furthermore he is also the cousin of two guilty frequent stars of previous blog posts, Leon and Samuel Brittan.

Rifkind is a law graduate of Edinburgh University and worked as an Assistant Lecturer at the University College of Rhodesia in Salisbury, 1967-68. Rifkind was called to the Scottish Bar in 1970 and practised full-time as an Advocate until 1974. From 1970 to 1974 Rifkind was a member of Edinburgh City Council. Rifkind is bound to have known about the sex abuse ring in Edinburgh and the role that Gwynne and Dafydd’s colleague Ronald Fairbairn and his son Sir Nicholas, who practised at the Scottish Bar and served as a Tory MP alongside Rifkind, played in it. Rifkind will also have known the substantial contribution made to the ring by Tam Paton, the gangster who was the manager of the Bay City Rollers. See post ‘Remember Girls – Never Get Into A Car With A Stranger!’.

Another thing that won’t have escaped Rifkind is the vast wealth and art treasures accumulated by Dedicated Edinburgh NHS Psychiatrists Sula Wolff and her husband Henry Walton. Sula and Henry, who Did it For The Poor, didn’t inherit wealth but they certainly ended up with it. Sula trained at the Maudsley when Dafydd and his mates were there, Sula taking a special interest in child psychiatry (Sula is considered to have been one of the founders of child psychiatry in the UK); Henry was working at the Maudsley as well, it’s how Sula and Henry met! Henry was a South African psychiatrist. When he returned to South Africa to become Head of Psychiatry at Groote Schuur Hospital Sula went with him. They married in Cape Town in 1959. Sula and Henry moved to the US in 1960 and Edinburgh in 1962, where they became part of Edinburgh’s elite, along with lawyers and politicians. They’ll have known Gordon Brown as well as Malcolm Rifkind.

Sula Wolff died in Edinburgh on 21 September 2009, shortly after being diagnosed with leukaemia. Prof Henry Walton pegged out on 3 July 2012, leaving his art collection worth millions to the Scottish nation.

See previous posts for Sula and Henry.

Rifkind had strong links with the Solidarity movement in Poland. In 1984, he made a Ministerial visit to Poland. Against the wishes of General Jaruzelski, the Polish Communist President, Rifkind insisted on laying a wreath at the grave of the murdered Polish priest Father Jerzy Popiełuszko, and had a meeting with three of the leaders of the banned Solidarity movement. Jaruzelski attacked Rifkind and cancelled a meeting he was due to have with him but Rifkind’s meeting with Solidarity created a precedent that was followed by the West German Foreign Minister, Hans-Dietrich Genscher and other Western Ministers. This helped force the Polish Gov’t to remove the ban on Solidarity and acknowledge the need for political reform and pluralism. Rifkind was, subsequently, decorated by the non-Communist democratic Polish Gov’t for his support.

Rifkind was the MP for Edinburgh Pentlands, Feb 1974-May 1997. He then resurfaced as the MP for Kensington and Chelsea in 2005 and held the seat until 2015. That constituency used to contain St George’s Hospital until St George’s relocated to Tooting in the early 1980s. Kensington and Chelsea is still crawling with people who have close connections to St George’s.

Rifkind was preceded in the Kensington and Chelsea seat by Michael ‘Of Course I’m Not Gay Mrs Thatcher, I support Section 28, Whoops it slipped my mind, I’ve been having same sex relationships ever since I was at Peterhouse dressing in drag and calling myself by a girl’s name, even two gay men living in Bethesda in 1993 told Sally Baker that, they’d seen me in gay clubs’ Portillo.

Rifkind was appointed Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee by PM Call Me Dave, on 6 July 2010, a post he held until 24 February 2015. As Chairman of the ISC Rifkind presided over the transformation of the Committee’s powers to ensure that it had effective oversight of MI5, MI6 and GCHQ.

Wasn’t that exactly the sort of man one needed in such a role while the Macur Review was being planned and conducted? No wonder police officers were threatening me with guns at the time.

Rifkind with American businessman Richard Burt, 2012:

Malcolm Rifkind’s son Hugo is the posh witty one on Radio 4’s ‘The News Quiz’. He stars on the show with Little Scottish Susan, Sir Ken Calman’s daughter, Sir Ken being a buddy of Dafydd and Gwynne’s going back decades. See previous posts.

 

Fatty was Shadow Secretary of State for Defence, 2003-05.

In 2002 Fatty was appointed to the Parliamentary Committee considering the future Hunting Act 2004, that banned hunting with dogs. Fatty opposed the planned Act.

On 9 May 2005, shortly after Michael Howard announced his intention to resign as leader of the Conservative Party, Fatty resigned from the Shadow Cabinet. Amazingly enough, that was just about the time that I handed my PhD thesis in! I couldn’t actually have my viva for another few months; because I’d completed my PhD so quickly, my PhD supervisor and the administrators at Bangor had to write to the Registry at the University of Wales (Bangor was still part of the UoW at the time) and make special arrangements, so it was well-known both in Bangor and at UoW HQ that I’d finished my PhD after Merfyn and my PhD supervisor had both refused to follow the Gang’s orders to unlawfully and unfairly force me out of the University.

It didn’t occur to me that the Chancellor himself knew.

See the source image

Carlo, do you know why, after I passed my viva, Dr John Perkins the hopelessly incompetent Academic Registrar at Bangor just wouldn’t add my name to the list of successful PhD students? Neither would Perkins complete the admin necessary for me to receive my PhD certificate. Not until I told him that if it wasn’t done I would begin legal action. I remembered Perkins of old because when I began my PhD, Perkins refused to register me. Again and again, I and then my supervisor asked Perkins to do the necessary. He just somehow couldn’t. After a few weeks, Perkins rang my supervisor and said that he had presumed that I had now withdrawn from my PhD. My supervisor said ‘No, she’s sitting here at her desk and she’s just completed her first journal article’.

Perkins was a Bangor graduate himself. He is older than me and had completed his first degree and PhD in the Dept of Agriculture, that place of shame that employed Mary Wynch as a Secretary and said nothing when she was wrongfully arrested, imprisoned and subsequently ruined by the Gang. With whom nearly all of them were friends and relations, in particularly the awful Prof J.B. Owen, who’s family had provided the dosh to establish a Dept at UCNW. The Dept of Agriculture. See previous posts.

See the source image

J.B. Owen and Ancestors were farmers on Anglesey. Lucille Hughes was the child care officer for Anglesey in the 1960s. When the north Wales paedophile ring was in full swing during the 1980s, numerous senior officers in Gwynedd County Council who had been so criminal and negligent had, like Lucille, earlier in their careers been responsible for Social Services on Anglesey. See eg. ‘I Know Nuzzing…’

Dafydd and his colleagues carried out Community Research Into Incest on Anglesey when Lucille was the child care officer and Prof Tim Miles of the School of Psychology conducted his ground-breaking Research Into Dyslexia with SEN pupils on Anglesey in the 1960s. The SEN pupils in particular were targeted by the Gang. See previous posts.

Anglesey County Council have a long and glorious tradition of being the most corrupt County Council in Wales, they’re brilliant on Anglesey, the Councillors go to prison and when they are released they’re back on the Council. Glenys Windbag’s dad was a Holyhead Councillor and he was good mates with Lord Cledwyn, the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79. It was Lord Cled who introduced the young Windbag to Jim Callaghan. The Windbag who was at Cardiff University with Dr Tony Francis.

Dafydd lives on Anglesey and has for years.

Dr Delyth Morris was a magistrate on Anglesey but she was obliged to resign after she tried to twist the arms of the police not to proceed with a case against her adult son who had committed an assault on someone. Dr Duckula Morris’s son has worked as the researcher for Hywel Williams, the MP for Caernarfon/Arfon. Duckula and Hywel are both former Gwynedd social workers.

Duckula and her son were the stuff of legend at Bangor University. Duckula was spectacular in herself (see previous posts) but then a PhD student arrived in the School of Social Sciences – where Duckula worked – who was being sponsored by Tesco of all things. It later transpired that he was Duckula’s son. No-one realised because Duckula had divorced and remarried and so his surname is not Morris. Neither he or Duckula managed to mention to anyone in the University that they knew each other.

When Tesco wanted to build their big store at Holyhead, there was much opposition. So Duckula kindly organised the We Want Tesco In Holyhead campaign. It was successful. Then Duckula’s son arrived at Bangor to complete his Tesco-funded PhD.

Duckula herself was an Anglesey farmer’s daughter, although Duckula flogged the land for housing and lived in a bungaloid. Duckula’s bungaloid was used to store her son’s recreational chemicals, the theory being that he was a well-known drug user and might get busted, but Duckula wouldn’t, being a magistrate. At least she was while she was storing the drugs.

Daughter of Duckula was even more fun than her brother. Daughter of Duckula, like Duckula, Hated Englishers and there was much happiness in the Duckula household when Daughter of Duckula became engaged to one of the few people in north Wales who did send bombs to Englishers and served a prison sentence for that. See previous posts. The Duckula clan were particularly opposed to Englishers who had second homes in north Wales. Second homes in certain places such as Aberdyfi and Abersoch do cause huge problems, in that they push the price of housing up way beyond the affordability of even professional local people and there is a knock-on effect re the language and the sustainability of things like schools etc.

Similar problems occurred in other areas with an influx of second homers from elsewhere, such as France. Where Dr Duckula Morris has a second home, as does (or did if he is now dead) Prof Glyn Williams, the loathed UCNW bigot who was the man responsible for Duckula and others like her gaining PhDs and jobs that they should never have had. See previous posts.

Dafydd held clinics in France and John Allen owned his villa there, where he took kids in care ‘on holiday’. The phenomenon of the Gwerin purchasing second homes in France only became obvious in the very late 1980s in Bangor, when an estate agent called Tony Myers was advertising a great many houses in France for sale. Previous posts discuss Tony Myers and how he was loathed in Bangor, reputed to be a crook and banged on all the time about being ex-Royal Navy…

As with so many members of the Gang, such as Huw Thomas, the former Chief Exec of Gwynedd Health Authority (Huw’s signature litters my documentation), John Perkins was happy to share his talents with Darkies. After John had done his best to stop me registering for a PhD, he was featured in the Daily Post, under a headline declaring ‘I Help Afghanistan Women Get An Education’. As Perkins had done everything possible to stop me from getting an education, I read the article and was surprised to learn that Perkins was a leading light in an education charidee committed to education Afghan women and those in neighbouring countries. Perkins told the Daily Post that he drank green tea ‘with war lords’ to ensure that those Afghan women received an education.

Huw Thomas, Dafydd’s mate William Bingley and John Perkins were all working with charidees helping Wimmin in Asia/the Stans…

John Perkins’s wife Ann Perkins is active in the Anglican Church in north Wales and although not an Empowered Service User herself ended up as one of the key members of the Service Users Consultation Group at Ysbyty Gwynedd, along with the Rev Wynne Roberts, the singing, Elvis-impersonating vicar who was appointed a hospital chaplain after he was obliged to leave his parish when it became public knowledge that he was shagging one of his parishioners when both of them were married to other people. As well as being on the Service Users Consultation Group, the Rev Wynne sits on Mental Health Review Tribunals and the Ethics Committees of the regional NHS and Bangor University. See post ‘Music Therapy Anyone?’

 

As for Fatty Soames, he resigned from the Shadow Cabinet – just as I handed my PhD thesis in- and immediately ended speculation that he intended to stand for the post of Tory Party Leader, saying that he merely wanted to be free to think about, and to influence, the future of the party. Fatty later announced his support for Call Me Dave, who’s old muckers from Oxford University began turning up in Somerset in the late 1980s/90s to enjoy an after-hours drinking session at the Cottage Inn in Fiddington and the rather more extreme fuckwittery that has been discussed in previous posts eg. ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’ and ‘A Holy Fool Among A Feast Of Fools’.

Fatty, now that the Tories are in such turmoil and Chris Leslie the Tory MP for Nottingham East (see previous posts eg. ‘A Discovery Of Witches’ for details of Chris’s proximity to the big ring in Yorkshire of which Carlo’s friend Savile was at the centre) has suggested that Ken Clarke should be a Tory Unity Leader, Ken who couldn’t beat the BMA so agreed to join them in wrecking my life and causing as much trouble for my father in his later years as well as they all concealed the same serious crime (see post ‘Jennifer’s Diary’), surely your time has come? Fatty for PM!

Carlo can be King, Fatty can be PM!

Along with Frank Field Fatty is a Co-chairman of the Cross-Party Group on Balanced Migration and has advocated in Parliament and in the media that immigration to and emigration from the UK should be brought into balance.

The British Royal Family: German, Russian, Danish, Greek and much more besides..

Frank Field has since 1979 been the Labour MP for Birkenhead. Dafydd’s Gang run Birkenhead and they have for years. Birkenhead exports a steady stream of distressed, dispossessed, expensive, needy people to north Wales to receive ‘services’ from Dafydd and it is made clear to them that Birkenhead doesn’t want them back, north Wales can keep them. See previous posts for Frank Field and the export of citizens who need looking after from Liverpool to north Wales, where they are of course neglected and abused by Dafydd and the Gang, in spite of the huge fees charged by Dafydd for their ‘care’.

On 13 July 2011, Fatty was sworn of the Privy Council. Fatty was knighted by his close friend’s mum in her 2014 Birthday Honours for ‘political service’.

Diana and Dodi’s inquest was carried out by Lord Thomas Scott Baker. It was Scott Baker’s first inquest. That was one hell of an inquest on which to cut one’s teeth as a coroner – Di and Dodi! I wonder if anyone will let me do Brenda’s inquest when she finally goes? I’ve always fancied doing a bit of inquesting, if only Jim were still with us I could write to him and ask him to Fix It For Me to do a Royal Inquest. Before Scott Baker was a Coroner for princesses who had pissed the Royal Family off and then died in suspicious circumstances, he had for years been a Family Court judge.

In 1995 Thomas Scott Baker presided over the trial of Susan Brooke, a deeply distressed Empowered Service User who was imprisoned for abducting a baby from a hospital in north Wales, after Susan had been assessed at Bryn Golau by Dafydd et al who had concluded that she was Not Mad But Evil. Susan Brooke’s abduction of the baby was so hopeless and had been a result of an abusive husband effectively telling her to do it anyway that only Dafydd’s Gang could construct it as a calculated crime. There was plenty of evidence that lies had been told about Susan by those who Supplied The Facts and that she had previously been targeted by the Gang.

See posts ‘So Who’s Path Had Susan Brooke Crossed?’, ‘More On The susan Brooke Case’ and ‘Update On Cases Of Susan Brooke and Sara Thornton’.

One reason why it was suggested that Scott Baker was appointed to handle Dodi and Di’s inquest was that Dodi’s dad had hired Michael Mansfield to represent him and Thomas Scott Baker was ‘one of the few coroners who could stand up to Mansfield’. There was only one reason why: Scott Baker knew that MM knew about Gwynne and Dafydd and had not responded when I had written to him about the Gang but instead had sent up distress flares and done deals with all and sundry to ensure that no-one ever took a case for me, thus ensuring the future co-operation of the Top Docs for other cases…

It’s an inevitable result of the medico-legal system being 100% institutionally corrupt in order to save the bacon of the Royal Family…


Fatty with former Czechoslovak RAF members in Prague, Czech Republic, June 2014

Fatty was opposed to Brexit prior to the 2016 EU membership referendum. In an interview before the referendum Fatty described himself as a One Nation Tory on the soft left of the Party

and compared Brexiteers to ‘a growling Alsatian that must be kicked really hard in the balls’.

I expect that Fatty agreed in 1984 with Carlo, Eric, Thatch, Gwynne and Peter Swinnerton-Dyer of the UGC, that I too should be treated in a similar manner. Fatty, I am not in possession of testicles, but many of those who were fitted up by Gwynne’s Gang were. They were indeed kicked hard in the knackers – one boy gave evidence to Waterhouse that Nefyn Dodd’s wife June kneed him in the knackers (she explained to Waterhouse that it was an accident) – and Gwynne, when he wasn’t lobotomising Homosexuals at the same time as running a paedophile ring supplying boys to Homosexuals who were too important and/or rich to be lobotomised, was Treating Homosexuals using Aversion Therapy (at Denbigh that translated as ‘torture’) or with Hormones a la Alan Turing, so their testicles withered on the vine as it were and were no longer there to kick.

Fatty you are an idiot who should not have mouthed off in public recently and brought your continued presence in public life to my attention. 10 year olds gang-raped Fatty, female patients covertly filmed in clinical settings and the material used for porn and shown to potential buyers who bid for their services as sex workers… Then there was all the Sharing that victims of sexual assault were encouraged to do with Therapists, that Brown and I always suspected was passed on and used as masturbatory material for Gang members. Our suspicions were right Fatty.

All recorded by the security services undercover who failed to stop it because of the connections with the Royal Family of those involved.

It is you Fatty who needs a kick in the knackers so hard that you do not walk again.

Do me a favour Fatty and pop up once more on the BBC to explain it all away. As for your famous grandfather Churchill, previous posts have explained how it was he who gave Lord Kilmuir aka David Maxwell Fyfe, when Home Secretary, additional responsibilities for Welsh Affairs as well as ordering MI5 to be answerable to Fyfe. Maxwell Fyfe was a personal friend of Gwynne and Dafydd and even agreed to act for one of their mates, a farmer in north Wales, in a minor planning dispute with the County Council. He was the Lord Chancellor at the time but was prepared to do that, just to remind everyone that Fings Break. Or indeed that Accidents Happen.

It was when David Maxwell Fyfe was Home Secretary and MI5 were answerable to him that Dafydd was accepted by Liverpool University on their medicine degree. Dafydd was backed by the security services to be trained up as the tame Top Doc who would kick Alsations hard in the knackers who dared growl after they had been anally gang-raped by dreadful old men. They needed the Next Generation to succeed Gwynne, so planning started well in advance of Gwynne’s predicted retirement. So far in advance that it can only be concluded that plans to ensure that north Wales became the organised abuse capital of the UK were being laid. Dafydd’s cover was as the Plaid activist from Bethesda who Was On The Side Of The Common Welshman, not being all English and posh like wot most Top Docs were.

People who know anything about the founders of Plaid are under no illusions that they saw themselves as anything but Common As Muck.

Saunders et al were, like William Mars-Jones and the other Welsh Sons Of The Soil who made it big in the British establishment, very much an elite in Wales, but plebs compared to the London elite. Dafydd was just a common criminal and a ruthless opportunist.

I was reading a bit of John Biffen’s autobiography the other day and the similarities between the position of Biffen and people like William Mars-Jones leapt out at me. Readers will know that previous posts have discussed how my father went to school with John Biffen, who grew up on a farm just down the road from us. See ‘A Local Boy Made Good?’ and ‘He Was Looking At I In A Funny Way…’. Biffen went to Cambridge and made it big in politics. Biffen hated Somerset, never returned to live there, but his parents stayed living at the farm on ‘Biffens Corner’ and they were most proud of him. In Thatch’s Cabinet and afterwards, Biffen pulled the strings in the Bridgwater area that made life so difficult for me and anyone who supported me…

Media comment about Biffen in the 1980s and 90s, like those of William Mars-Jones, stressed his humble origins, the son of country bumpkins, gosh isn’t it incredible. Yet as with Mars-Jones, although Biffen’s upbringing was nothing like as privileged as many of those with whom he later sat in Parliament, it was privileged compared to most of his neighbours in Somerset. The Biffens had a really big farmhouse and they employed farm workers rather than working as farm workers themselves. They were Tories of the local business class and Biffen’s parents’ favourite spot for socialising was the Royal Clarence Hotel in Bridgwater which was the poshest hotel in Bridgwater until the 1980s when it faded somewhat. As a boy, Biffen remembered watching local politicians coming to campaign – they would always stay at the Clarence – and some of them later became very powerful politicians or were from famous political dynasties, such as the Heathcote-Amory family.

Biffen’s biography really flags up his humble beginnings, with accounts of doing his schoolwork by oil lamp etc. My father used to remember exactly the same thing; none of the houses in that area had electricity until well into the 1950s. Biffen’s dad and my grandfather were two of the few people around who had a car. They were also among the first people in the area to have their houses wired up for electricity…

Biffens weren’t posh by the standards of those educated at Eton, but they were better off than most of their neighbours. Biffen mentioned in his autobiography that his dad let him off the farmwork to study. I know; it was well-known that the Biffens had big ambitions for their son and didn’t want him to be a Somerset farmer. Furthermore Biffen was a kid with asthma and quite serious health problems, it was obvious that he wouldn’t be able to do physical work.

I was always told that John Biffen was much more academic than the other kids at Dr Morgans, the Grammar School in Bridgwater and he did genuinely win that scholarship to Jesus College, Cambridge (a college with Welsh connections), no fiddling was needed, but my point is that John Biffen, by Somerset standards, was quite well-to-do.

At the time that John Biffen and my father went to Dr Morgans, the school was no longer a fee-paying one, but there was the old chestnut of the uniform being obligatory but beyond the pocket of some of the kids who passed the exam necessary. I had an uncle on the other side of my family who couldn’t take up his place at Dr Morgans because those grandparents couldn’t afford the uniform. His younger sister was in the same situation a few years later re Bridgwater Girls Grammar School, but someone in the extended family – it might have been my well-off grandfather, I can’t remember – coughed up for the uniform.

I noted that John Biffen never mentioned any of this when he was supplying those Thatcherite interviews to the media in the 1980s. Instead he waxed lyrical about his parsimonious Somerset upbringing laying the foundations of his conservatism. I had a particularly good laugh when Biffen also Paid Tribute to a history teacher at Morgan’s, explaining that this teacher’s historical insights Made Biffen A Conservative Free Marketeer and a former Morgan’s pupil wrote into one of the broadsheets commenting that the same teacher at Morgan’s had made him a socialist.

I have only just realised that John Biffen was giving those ‘Bridgy Life, Dr Morgan’s School And The Royal Clarence Made Me The Success That I Am’ when the Gang came after me and Brown and my other Somerset friend and Tom King was crawling his way up the ladder…

Dafydd, Gwynne, the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the murder of witnesses, not a good advert John Biffen!

It’s Edward du Cann with Cecil and Thatch, in happier times, before Cecil had to resign and before du Cann was bankrupted and scarpered to Cyprus:

I know of two sons from similar families to the Biffens in that part of Somerset – one of them being my father – who fell out with their own parents in a major way because they wanted to farm…

Alumni of Jesus College, Cambridge include: Roger Scruton (Thatch’s favourite philosopher); Andrew Mitchell MP (son of Sir David Mitchell, the MP for the Hampshire constituency in which we lived for a few years with Lord Denning down the road, Sir David having won the seat after his predecessor Denzil Freeth was forced to stand down by Lord Denning after being named in the John Vassall gay spies in the Admiralty scandal and then an incident in which Freeth, who was known to be gay himself, was fined after being found out and about in his undies, as discussed in ‘Sex, Lies and No Democracy’); Geoff Hoon; Shaun Woodward; Quentin Letts; Dominic Sandbrook; Raymond Williams; Jacob Bronowski; Lisa Jardine; Anthony Julius; Prince Edward!

Think those names are incriminating?

Theodore Huckle also went to Jesus College, Cambridge. Theo was the Counsel General for Wales who a few years ago read my 10,000 incriminating documents detailing serious organised crime and when I was (yet again) unlawfully detained in a psych unit, advised the Welsh Gov’t that I had no case for negligence on any grounds… Theo now shares Leading Human Rights Chambers Doughty Street with St Helena Kennedy, George Clooney’s wife Amal and other Defenders Of Justice. See eg. ‘Theodore Huckle QC’.

Lord Snowdon was also an alumnus of Jesus College, Cambridge!

Lord Snowdon was born on 7 March 1930. John Biffen was born on 3 Nov 1930.

Just send me my NDA Ma’am, I’m ready and waiting!

Hold on to your plumbs Fatty…

Saunders Lewis, one of the founders of Plaid, along with the father of the corrupt judge Huw Daniel and others (see post ‘Tan yn Llyn’) and Dafydd’s mate, was a rather odd academic who was the snobbiest old git that it was possible to encounter, as even the most loyal of Plaid supporters agreed. Lewis was born on the Wirral to a Welsh Calvinistic Methodist family – Lewis converted to Catholicism as an adult – and went to school in Liverpool and then to Liverpool University. Lewis then became an academic at what is now Swansea University, where he taught Rhodri Morgan’s parents and was then a senior colleague of Morgan’s father when Morgan’s dad bagged a job at Swansea. Saunders Lewis retained a God-like status among the Gwerin and the Gang until his death on 1 Sept 1985 and his very existence fanned the flames of the huge How Very Dare You when I raised questions about Gwynne.

 

I have no idea why Fatty Soames’s granddad gave David Maxwell Fyfe, a personal friend of Gwynne’s, all the powers that Fyfe needed to ensure that the Gang could for decades assault, rape, maim, rob, frame and even kill their targets, as well as abduct children en masse, but that is what Churchill did.

There are many other Interesting Facts about the Churchills, including the serious mental health problems suffered by some of their children. Their eldest daughter, Diana, was in great distress when young and received the attentions of the Top Docs. Diana had several nervous breakdowns. In 1962, she began working with the Samaritans. In 1963, Diana died, at age 54, from an overdose of barbiturates; a coroner later concluded that the death was a suicide. Diana’s younger sister Sarah, an actress, had an affair that led to the suicide of the man with whom she had an affair; Sarah became an alcoholic and passed through Holloway Prison briefly. Churchill’s son Randolph was generally rather hopeless and suffered from poor health for years, dying at 57 years old from ‘a heart attack’ in his sleep at his home in Suffolk. He was found by one of his researchers the next morning, 6 June 1968 and although he had been rough for years, Randolph’s death was unexpected.

Lord Charles Hill aka Charlie Corkscrew, Churchill’s Top Doc, knew a great deal re dirt on those in high places and capitalised on this knowledge. Charles Hill was the WW II Radio Doctor and a big wig in the BMA who ‘negotiated’ with Nye Bevan re the establishment of the NHS – Bevan was told by Hill that the Top Docs would not work in the NHS unless they were allowed to dictate their own pay and conditions and ‘regulate’ their own profession. Hill lived until 22 Aug 1989, ever ready to save the day with regard to his friends Dafydd and Gwynne. Charlie Corkscrew was kicked out of Macmillan’s Cabinet during Night of the Long Knives in July 1962, but was very soon after given a peerage and subsequently appointed Chairman of the BBC by Harold Wilson. While making load noises about standards and morality, Hill ensured that the ring at the BBC, including the most extreme member of the ring, Savile, was left unhindered. See previous posts.

That is how long these Alsations have been causing havoc. They don’t need a hard kick in the knackers, they need to be put down – or simply removed from all positions of influence – along with the dangerous idiots who have rendered them bombproof.

According to the book Women in Parliament published in 2005, Fatty has been named as the ‘most sexist’ MP, with several female MPs stating that he has made vulgar comments to them. In other accusations of sexual harassment it has been alleged that Fatty makes repeated cupping gestures with his hands, suggestive of female breasts, when women are trying to speak in parliament, in order to distract them. He allegedly harassed Alastair Campbell by telephoning him and saying “you sex god, you Adonis, you the greatest of all great men”. Fatty didn’t realise that he was actually speaking to Campbell’s young son.

On 31 January 2017, Soames made ‘woofing’ noises at Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh when she was asking the Foreign Secretary Boris a question in the House. Ahmed-Sheikh called a point of order o bring the Speaker’s attention to the noises. The Speaker John Bercow described the noises as “discourteous and that expression should not be used” and Fatty was asked to apologise. Fatty did so, saying he was only offering her a “friendly canine salute” in reply to her “snapped” question.

Oh just get rid of him someone, Fatty is not only offensive to Wimmin, he is offensive to virtually the entire human race. He is also the close friend of a man who has over years consistently protected sex offenders who resorted to very serious crime to cover their arses. That is the real problem, not Fatty simply behaving as he did when he was 14 and at Eton.

In one edition of The Mark Thomas Comedy Product, Mark Thomas investigated the practice of avoiding inheritance tax by declaring art, furniture, homes and land available for public viewing. After discovering that Fatty was claiming tax relief on a “three-tier mahogany buffet with partially reeded slender balustrade upright supports” on this basis, but without making any arrangements for the furniture to be inspected by the public, Thomas invented a ‘National Soames Day’ on which hundreds of people made appointments to see the furniture.

Fatty subsequently decided to pay the tax on the ‘three-tier mahogany buffet with partially reeded slender balustrade upright supports’ and Gordon, then Chancellor of the Exchequer, changed the law. Not that Gordon changed the law that much; when George Osborne was Chancellor, he famously had dinner with the senior execs of multi-national companies and asked them how much tax they would be willing to pay. George who’s brother Adam was a Top Doc who was struck off some four years ago after having sex with a patient, asking her if she’d like to make up a threesome with him and his wife and then threatening her – as did Adam’s wife, a Nice Lady Doctor, too – when the patient complained about him. Adam had previously been before the GMC after it was discovered that he had committed fraud re prescriptions of opiates and flogged them to sex workers. See previous posts…

For George Osborne’s role in the massive rigging of public opinion, Gov’t policy and contracts etc that resulted in the construction of the huge new Hinkley Point nuclear installation in Somerset and George’s contacts, including those in Somerset linked to the Gang, that assisted in this, see post ‘He Was Looking At I In A Funny Way…’

 

In 2015, Mark Thomas told Adam Jacques of the Indie: “I try to find the good in my enemies. It’s not unusual to be able to get on with people despite what they are doing being awful. The only person I have met who I considered to be without any redeeming features was […] Nicholas Soames. […] He was such a pantomime baddie.”

Fatty isn’t just pantomime, he’s a real life obnoxious dangerous git. Sitting in Parliament maxing out on his friendship with a Royal who is good mates with sex offenders.

Take this blog post as your really hard kick in the knackers Fatty.

The latest edition of the London Review of Books has a by-line on the cover asking ‘How Bad Can It Get?’. When I did my ‘Worse, how can it be worse? Jehovah, Jehovah, Jehovah’ bit on Tony Francis in 1986 after he snapped at me saying ‘You’re only making it worse for yourself’ and he responded with ‘It can get a lot worse, believe me’,

I didn’t realise that Gangsters had been responsible for my friend Anne’s death, that they would then try and murder me and Brown and kill my friend’s baby!

Tony Francis was found dead in 2012. It was presumed that he’d killed himself but his death was kept very quiet. Operation Pallial was underway and I have been told that Francis had been questioned. I presumed that Francis had killed himself because he could see that he hadn’t yet exhausted his own Jehovah Jehovah Jehova possibilities. It is believed that Tony hung himself. Top Docs don’t usually hang themselves because they know what an horrific death it is, slow strangulation with the person changing their mind as it progresses and ripping their fingernails off as they grapple with the noose. Furthermore Tony had been taking opiates for years, he’d have had a lovely death with an overdose of those.

Over years, witnesses murdered by the Gang were found hanging and their deaths were dismissed as suicide. Sometimes suicide notes – as well as medical notes – were forged to set the scene. My post ‘He Knew Far, Far Too Much’ discussed Harry, a patient of Dafydd’s who had a relationship with Dafydd’s wife. (Dafydd has a number of ex-wives.) Mrs Dafydd left Dafydd for Harry; Dafydd then gave medical evidence against her in the child custody case, gaining custody of their children. Dafydd was never at home to look after the kids, he hired nannies to do that, who were nearly always young female patients whom he had sectioned for so long in Denbigh that they were left homeless, destitute and unemployable and were then invited by Dafydd to move into his house as his nanny/housekeeper.

It wasn’t illegal for Dafydd to declare his own wife insane to gain custody of the kids but it was very unacceptable and the whole of Gwynedd realised at that point that they had spawned a monster. After spawning the monster that was Gwynne. Harry was later found hung. He had killed himself. Everyone knew that Harry had done that because he believed that his new partner would stand a better chance of getting her kids back if Harry wasn’t around. It was widely believed that Dafydd himself had suggested this to Harry.

Nearly all of those kids in care and Empowered Service Users who were patients of Dafydd who ‘killed themselves’ in Risley Remand Centre hung themselves. Even though they were in the Hospital Wing under observation. It takes a while to die by hanging…

When F was framed by the Gang and imprisoned in the Hospital Wing in Risley, every night he heard the screams of the other prisoners as the screws kicked the hell out of them. From what F told me, he probably heard a murder of a prisoner by the screws as well.

The suicide record at Risley was the worst of any remand centre/prison in mainland Britain. It was dreadful from 1964 when Risley opened. Serious riots at Risley in 1989 that resulted in substantial damage to the building eventually led to a degree of change. Risley was re-roled to a male category C Training Prison 1n 1990, with the Female Remand Centre and a Male Allocation Centre retained on the same site. The female facility closed in April 1999 and the Male Allocation Centre closed in March 2000, at which point Risley wholly re-roled to a Category C Training Prison, known as HMP Risley.

The Home Office did not act re the dreadful conditions in Risley until the 1989 Risley riots in 1. The stats re the deaths of ‘male prisoners under 16’ (children) in Risley were so shameful that the Home Office refused to release them. See post ‘Include Me Out’.

It was the 1989 major riots at Risley that so embarrassed Douglas Hurd at the Home Office that change finally followed. Michael Mansfield represented some of those prisoners who had rioted. They were not the Gang’s victims, they were the prisoners of whom the Gang’s victims were so frightened. As more than one of the Gang’s victims said to me ‘The place was full of murderers, I was terrified’. One of the screws’ favourite techniques at Risley was to tell the sort of prisoners who Michael Mansfield represented that the Gang’s victims were nonces. Then they’d get their head kicked in by the prisoners as well as by the screws. It was at that point that Dafydd would appear and offer them a Bed In Denbigh. They knew that they would be found dead if they stayed at Risley much longer and accepted Dafydd’s kind offer. F was unlawfully imprisoned in Denbigh for a year by such a process, as were two other people known to me. It was of course how Mary Wynch found herself in Denbigh.

During his many hours of commenting on the Risley riots, Mansfield didn’t mention that nearly every prisoner on the Hospital Wing was a kid in care or psych patient from north Wales. I wrote to Mansfield in 1993 about the abuses of Gwynedd Social Services. He wrote me a one line reply.

I am told that when he received my letter, Mansfield sent up the distress flare and I have been informed that all the big legal names agreed never to represent me, in return for the continued co-operation of Top Docs, appeal judges etc for their other cases. Mansfield will have known that he was about to hear from me. I was given his address by Alwyn Jones, a solicitor in Bangor who was married to a lawyer who worked for Gwynedd County Council. Alwyn’s wife was a colleague of Ron Evans, the crooked lawyer for Gwynedd who rigged the cases, forged documents, planned the conspiracy and perjury etc. See eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’. Alwyn’s father-in-law was a policeman who was a member of the Freemason’s lodge in Bangor. When Alwyn split up from his first wife, he married a pharmacist with whom he had been at Aber University.

It was Alwyn who told me about Dafydd giving medical evidence against his own wife in order to gain custody of the kids.

In May 2015 Michael Mansfield’s daughter Anna was found dead, hanging in the bathroom of her house. Michael established a suicide charidee, SOS (Silence Of Suicide), after that Personal Tragedy as discussed in previous posts.

On 18 Feb 2017, six months after I began this blog, the Torygraph published an interview with Melian Mansfield, Michael Mansfield’s first wife, Anna’s mother:

Melian Mansfield has just turned 75, yet pursues a schedule that would floor a person half her age.

Melian Mansfield campaigns for state education

But, in truth, she wouldn’t want it any other way. Her work and her family have helped her through one of the cruellest blows to any parent: the suicide of a child. On May 1, 2015, the unthinkable happened: Melian’s bright, beautiful, high-flying, second-eldest child, Anna – the 44-year-old mother of two boys aged six and three – took her own life and was found in the bathroom of their London home by her husband, Carlo.

QUE??

Anna, who was facing problems at work, had a history of depression. So too did Melian’s own father, Lt-Cdmr Breon Bordes, following war service. One of Anna’s relatives was diagnosed with schizophrenia while at university.

That’s always a bad sign. It’s Genetic!

We sit today in Melian’s homely north London kitchen, where the table is thronged with cards from family and friends for this unassuming matriarch’s landmark birthday, including one from her ex-husband and father of her five children: the campaigning civil-rights QC Michael Mansfield. In a tribute to how hard his ex-wife works, he writes: “I hope you find time to celebrate.”

Her work as an educational campaigner has been something of a solace over the past 18 months. “It keeps me focused; it has helped enormously,” she admits.

This is the first time that Melian has spoken publicly about the loss of her daughter which, she explains, is still raw. “It’s very difficult to say what I feel because it’s so devastating. What could we have done? Although Anna did confide in me a lot, I could never have foreseen what she would do. She had problems at work, but she had such good friends, an amazing group who talk so animatedly about her still. She was so much loved by everybody.”

Yvette Vanson met Mansfield during the 1984-85 NUM strike when they were both in Yorkshire working with the miners. My friends who were forced out of their media careers met Yvette Vanson, she is a Radical Film Producer. Yvette knew about Gwynne, Dafydd etc, one could not be the sort of film producer that Yvette is and not know. See post ‘Workers Play Time’.

In a 2011 joint interview with her father, Anna talked about his “devastating” departure; and in his 2009 memoir Memoirs of a Radical Lawyer, he acknowledged that “the innocent victims were our five lovely, long-suffering children”.

The corpse hanging in the bathroom was the aftermath of a marriage breakdown.

The picture Melian paints today of Anna is of a warm, funny, clever daughter – a daddy’s girl who became the emotional centre of the family as mediator between her parents after their split. She was so multi-talented that, at first, several careers beckoned. “After university, Anna started out as a children’s play-leader,” recalls Melian. “She then trained as an aerobics teacher. She was very sporty, brilliant at gymnastics and a good swimmer, ice-skater, footballer, horse-rider and dancer. She played four instruments. And then she went on to work in the media. She was such an achiever.”

Yet, according to her mother, Anna had suffered from depression “on and off” since her teens. Becoming a mother then brought tragedy, when her first child was stillborn. Melian is still searching for clues as to whether Anna’s bouts of depression were made worse by tough experiences or hormonal issues.

Hormones are always very useful when serious organised crime makes an appearance.
Gangsters are difficult to deal with when even the highest profile barristers in the UK will not act for their victims.

It is a sadness that ripples out to the rest of the family, with one of Anna’s relatives having been diagnosed as schizophrenic, something neither Michael nor Melian have ever talked about publicly.

If they had have done, the grim reality would have put a lot of noses out of joint and the Top Docs wouldn’t have been quite so helpful when Mr Mansfield asked them to provide Expert Opinions for his next high profile case reinforcing his image as a Fearless Champion of Underdogs.

“Anna’s death has been very tough for everyone,” she says.

In August 2015, three months after Anna died, Michael Mansfield gave an interview to this newspaper about the loss of their daughter and the Silence of Suicide (SOS) forum he set up to raise awareness of the subject. “It was a brave thing to do in a way,” says Melian now. “I think it’s important for him to do it, it’s how he operates, he’s a big communicator and much more open about things.

Mike has throughout his entire career not managed to communicate anything at all about the enormous problem that was Gwynne and Dafydd. But then Mike is in Gray’s Inn, as was William Mars-Jones, Dafydd and Gwynne’s good mate.

Whereas I couldn’t possibly have done that because I’m a much more private person.”

Melian drew support from a group called The Compassionate Friends, for parents who have lost children through illness, accident or unforeseen events. NHS grief counsellors, she says, provided crucial help to the whole family. “That service was completely free; they were amazing to us.”

I thought that the NHS might just have come up trumps on that occasion…

Today, Melian pours her energies into campaigning, with a focus on championing comprehensive schools.

If I’d have met you when I was 15 and at the hands of those hopeless unpleasant teachers who were linked to the Gang that your husband didn’t dare taken on Melian, I’d have told you to be my guest, put my comprehensive school on the back of a lorry and take it far away from me as possible. See eg. ‘He Was Looking At I In A Funny Way…’

This stems from her own childhood experiences when her younger sisters, Alison and Jacqueline, failed to pass the 11 plus. It divided the family and they were sent to boarding school instead, which her parents could ill afford, while Melian attended the local grammar. “I didn’t get to know my sisters properly for years,” she explains.

It won’t have been the best situation but it will have been better than being targeted by a gang of sex offenders who had their sights on you from the age of 12 or 13, then accessed confidential info and Gov’t databases to track you years after you’d left the hell-hole behind.

It is the reason why this former French and maths teacher now trains school governors and is chair of the Campaign for State Education (CASE). She is fiercely opposed to Theresa May’s plan to open new grammar schools, which she feels would similarly stigmatise a generation of children. Not to mention, she adds, how it could put financial strain on parents feeling pressured into paying for private education over worries about second-best “sink” state schools.

So sort those bloody sink schools out. The opportunities that you mentioned Anna having as a teenager were not available to most kids in my school – except for the horse-riding that was available for some of the kids who lived in the countryside – and they’re not available to swathes of kids in north Wales or in many other areas of the UK. Grammars do cultivate an unpleasant social snobbery and delusions of brilliance when success in that system is actually closely associated with social class, but generations of children going to sub-standard, brutal bear pits where they are not expected to achieve anything at all is not the answer.

Understandably, she supports another of Mrs May’s pledges – for more mental health funding.

Fings Break. As Mike and Melian are now acutely aware.

A regular babysitter to her grandchildren, including Anna’s two sons, they are, she says, a constant reminder of its importance. “Anna was the focus of our family: a great mother, daughter and sister, and there was such an outpouring of love for her,” she says.

One Empowered Service User who ended up in prison after the perjury of the Gang told me that he thinks that Tony Francis was probably murdered and that was why there was no obituaries, notices or even much discussion about his death.

Dafydd holds a Home Office licence for prescribing Class A drugs and has always been the main supplier in north Wales and probably for the rest of Wales as well. He would have known about Tony Francis and the opiates and might well have been the Top Doc prescribing them.

Tony Francis knew that I knew about Harry and the circumstances of his death and that Dafydd gave medical evidence against his own wife. Tony knew that F and I knew about the patients who cohabited with Dafydd and worked as his nannies and Tony knew that we had spoken to one of them, Therese.

How are your testicles at present Sir Fatty? A little bruised and swollen perhaps?

Fatty was Chairman of the private security contractor Aegis Defence Services which was bought in 2015 by GardaWorld, for whom Fatty now acts as a member of the International Advisory Board. Aegis had a series of contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars to provide guards to protect US military bases in Iraq from 2004 onwards. From 2011, the company broadened its recruitment to take in African countries, having previously employed people from the UK, the US and Nepal.

Contract documents state that the soldiers from Sierra Leone were paid $16 (£11) a day. A documentary, The Child Soldier’s New Job, broadcast in Denmark, alleges that the estimated 2,500 Sierra Leonean personnel who were recruited by Aegis and other private security companies to work in Iraq included former child soldiers.

Fatty was a Director of the liquidated company Framlington Second Dual Trust plc.

Mid Sussex Conservative Constituency Association has received over £1 million in donations, with Fatty receiving well over £100,000 from private military company Aegis Defence Services Ltd from 2010 onwards. US multinational professional services, risk management and insurance brokerage firm Marsh & McLennan Companies Inc has given Fatty £518,069 since 2010 in remunerations for his services as an MP. Fatty has also received private donations from a variety of people, including £5,749 from Majlis As Shura, £10,000 from David Rowland and £20,000 from Ann R. Said.

In October 2017, Fatty faced criticism following a meeting with Robert Mugabe while visiting Zimbabwe. Zimbabwean media claimed that the visit was “part of a private initiative of friends of Zimbabwe in the British establishment” to normalise relations between the two countries, and quoted Mugabe as saying that Fatty had carried messages of goodwill from both Lord Carrington (another life-long facilitator of the Gang, as discussed in previous posts, who had co-signed the 1979 Lancaster House Agreement on behalf of the British Gov’t) and Carlo. The Zimbabwean state-owned Herald asserted that “Sir Nicholas insisted on meeting President Mugabe in the full glare of publicity. He promised to publicise details of the meeting in the British media.”

In response Fatty maintained that he had met Mugabe in a personal capacity, rather than as a representative of the UK Gov’t: he said that his father Christopher Soames, who had overseen Zimbabwe’s transition to independence, would not have forgiven him if he had not tried to “call on” the President.

MP Kate Hoey, Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Zimbabwe, criticised the visit, stating that Fatty’s behaviour “pander(ed) to the vanity of a wily and ruthless dictator.” She continued “(y)ou can’t have a private visit which is then front page of the newspapers in Zimbabwe.”

The gangster Nicholas Hoogstraten was a mate of Mugabe’s and after Hoogstraten finally left the UK some years ago he moved to Zimbabwe, where he was an adviser to Mugabe. Hoogstraten left the UK after he was held in custody under suspicion of murdering a business rival. Charges were eventually dropped and Mugabe finally left the UK. Hoogstraten’s life after his jail term when he was a young man provides an interesting example of what one can do if people are simply terrified of one. Hoogstraten was best known as a truly dreadful slum landlord as well as for vicious business practices. There was complaint after complaint but the authorities never took action to put Hoogstraten out of business and then the complaints stopped coming in the wake of accounts of savage beatings and attempted murders of people who dared complain.

It seems likely that my friends who supported me after they graduated from Stirling University – having met Jack McConnell there – when the Gang came after me who found themselves bothered by gangsters when they lived at Archway in north London were tenants of a house owned by Hoogstraten; he owned a great deal of property in London and Brighton and his tactics were known to result in the sort of experiences that my friends had.

Yet Hoogstraten was feted by the media, appeared on TV – just after my mates had all that trouble at Archway – and people offered to work on the palace that Hoogstraten planned and then had built in the south of England free of charge. He really hated ramblers and cut off public footpaths on his land with rolls of barbed wire, concrete etc and nothing was ever done to persuade Hoogstraten to change his mind.

Not long before Hoogstraten emigrated to Zimbabwe, he was prosecuted for tax evasion on a massive scale. The case was dropped after information was received that if it went ahead, the presiding judge would almost certainly be assassinated. It was confirmed: Hoogstraten had reached Dafydd and Gwynne status. No-one would touch him because they would be killed if they did.

My post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’ discussed the firebomb that killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal days after the April 1992 General Election. Two more witnesses who had survived the firebomb were subsequently found dead, one immediately after giving evidence against John Allen in Court. Hoogstraten was alleged to have owned the building in which the party was held to which so many witnesses were invited before a firebomb was thrown into the building as the party was in full swing. No -one ever proved that Hoogstraten owned the building  in Court – well they wouldn’t dare name him anyway would they – but the building was owned by a sort of shell company (Dafydd uses the same techniques re his Care Homes) known to have links with Hoogstraten.

This is where the mindless bleating of Ah the doctors they were wonderful and They’re Lying To Get Compensation ends up. Trials that have to be abandoned because no judge dares risk his life presiding over them. Dafydd and Gwynne should have received lengthy jail sentences decades ago. They didn’t and now no politician dares criticise Top Docs and no lawyer will represent anyone who wants to take a case against Dafydd and his acolytes.

 

Fatty has been married twice. His first marriage (4 June 1981-1988) was to Catherine Weatherall (the sister of Isobel Bowes-Lyon, Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne). Carlo was best man and the wedding was attended by Diana, the Queen Mum, Ma’am Darling and many others. Fatty and Catherine have one son:

  • Arthur Harry David Soames (b. May 1985)

Isobel and Catherine are the sisters of Edward Percy Keswick Weatherall (born 1957), MD of the Jardine Matheson Group from 2000 to 31 March 2006 having joined the Board in 1999. Weatherall joined the Jardine Group in 1976 and worked in a number of senior executive positions in Hong Kong, the US, the UK, Saudi Arabia, Korea and the Philippines, prior to becoming “Tai-Pan“. Weatherall was CEO of Hongkong Land.

Weatherall is a member of the Keswick family who control Jardine Matheson through complex cross-shareholdings, despite holding only around 10% of the shares in the company. During Weatherall’s period in charge, the Jardines undertook large scale strategic investment in Astra International of Indonesia via the Singapore company Jardine Cycle & Carriage. Weatherall was succeeded as Group Managing Director by Anthony Nightingale on 1 April 2006.

Weatherall was born the elder son of Captain Anthony Weatherall and Sophy Keswick. He is married to Clara Mary Johnston (b. 1960), elder daughter of Nicholas John Johnston by his wife Susanna Maria Chancellor, younger daughter of Sir Christopher Chancellor CMG 

Susanna Chancellor is the sister of the journo Alexander Chancellor. Rosie Johnston, the only person who was jailed after the death of Olivia Channon at Oxford in 1986, is a member of the Chancellor family via her mother. See post ‘Is The Party Over Yet?’

Weatherall and Clara have four children: Bertram, Stella, Ruby and Honor Weatherall. The family lives in South West Scotland, having left Hong Kong in April 2006.

Weatherall has two sisters and a younger brother (who is married to his wife’s younger sister). Weatherall’s elder sister Catherine Nony was Fatty’s first wife. Weatherall’s younger sister Isobel Charlotte, Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne (b. ca. 1963), was married from 1984 to 2005 to the 18th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne and is mother of the earl’s three elder surviving sons.

Michael Fergus Bowes-Lyon, 18th and 5th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne (7 June 1957-27 February 2016), styled Lord Glamis, 1972-87, was a first cousin, once removed, of Brenda. Lord Strathmore was the only son of Michael Bowes-Lyon, 17th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, and his wife Mary Pamela McCorquodale (b.1932). Diana’s sister married into the McCorquodale clan. Lord Glamis was a great-nephew of the Queen Mum. Lord Glamis was educated at Sunningdale School (as was Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor aka the 6th Duke of Westminster), Eton, Aberdeen University and Sandhurst. He succeeded his father as 18th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne in 1987.

Lord Strathmore was married three times. In 1984 he married Isobel Charlotte Weatherall (b ca 1963), sister of Percy Weatherall. They were separated in 2003 and divorced in 2005. They had three children:

On 24 November 2005 at Glamis Castle (the Queen Mum’s childhood home which is reputed to be haunted by a particularly unsavoury ghost; Ma’am Darling was born at Glamis Castle) Lord Strathmore married Dr. Damaris E. Stuart-William, a clinical psychologist. They were separated in 2007 and were divorced in 2008. They had one child, a son:

  • Hon. Toby Peter Fergus Bowes-Lyon (b. March 2005) (legitimised upon the marriage of his parents)

On 4 August 2012 he married Karen Baxter who survives him.

Damaris Stuart-William appears on LinkedIn described as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist based in Southampton at HAMPSHIRE AND SURREY PSYCHOLOGY LTD. Damaris Stuart-William also appears on the web as working with CAMHS in NHS Tayside, Dundee.

 

Fatty subsequently married Serena Smith (a niece of the Duchess of Grafton and daughter of Sir John Smith) on 21 December 1993. They have two children.

  • Isabella Soames (b. 28 November 1996)
  • Christopher Soames (b. 11 January 2001)

Now for Fatty’s father-in-law, Sir John Lindsay Eric Smith (3 April 1923 – 28 February 2007). John Smith was a banker and Tory MP who was involved with many architectural, industrial and maritime conservation charities. Smith founded the Landmark Trust in 1965.

When the previously disadvantaged agricultural areas of Somerset began to be colonised by celebs and affluent Tories after the arrival of Paul Johnson in Over Stowey heralded the invasion, people knew that an earthquake had hit Stogursey when David Essex went there on holiday. It was at some point in the late 1980s. Stogursey was not the sort of village to host celebs on holiday (see post ‘He Was Looking At I In A Funny Way…’). I e mailed Brown a couple of weeks ago to ask him if he could remember the circumstances in which David Essex booked a holiday in Stogursey.

Brown’s reply:

Brown

Sat, Aug 3, 11:46 AM (13 days ago)
to me

I think this was round about the time the Landmark Trust bought and refurbished the house at Stogursey Castle, and I think he was one the first customers. I can’t remember if anyone else famous turned up. I think he was the one of whom Mrs Brown said he’s been offended because nobody recognised him. A lot of men in that area looked like ageing versions of 1970s entertainers and singers anyway so he probably blended in.

More celebs did follow David Essex, I remember Brown’s mum telling me, but David Essex was the one who put Stogursey as a holiday destination on the map as it were. I need to emphasise once more that Stogursey, until the Landmark Trust got busy, was not your usual holiday destination. The High Street looked like a twee Somerset village but Stogursey had always been ‘rough’; a lawless gypsy site nearby, another big caravan site for people who couldn’t afford houses, a drunken violent vicar, fist fights in the pubs, a primary school with a Head who reassured people that it didn’t matter if the kids couldn’t read and write (he certainly wasn’t going to teach them to do so) ‘because they’re all going to work on farms’.

Stogursey now IS a twee village, Brown and I marvelled some years ago of how it had been effectively cleansed of the mass of poor people who lived there.

As for Brown’s comment re the men looking like ageing 70s entertainers, yes they did, particularly the school bus drivers who were shagging the more precocious girls. ‘Keefy’ Miller being the best example, Keefy of the walrus moustache and gold jewellery, a ‘Medallion man’ as Keefy’s variety of male was known. The activities of Keefy and his friends were widely know, as discussed in previous posts.

They did all of course douse themselves in one gents’ fragrance in particular:

 

Fatty’s father-in-law John Smith was born in London, the son of Cap’n Evan Cadogan Eric Smith of Ashfold, Sussex and his wife, Beatrice Helen (née Williams). Smith was a scion of an old banking family: Smiths of Nottingham was founded in the 1650s, and merged with the National Provincial Bank after WW I and his Smith’s father became its Chairman. The National Provincial in Bangor was one of the banks under the control of the Gang; multiple fiddles were underway.

John Smith’s mother was the daughter of Albert Williams and granddaughter of Sir George Williams, founder of the YMCA and a great-granddaughter of Thomas Cook (the holiday king). His elder sister, Fortune, married Hugh FitzRoy, Earl of Euston (later 11th Duke of Grafton) in 1946; she was a Lady-of-the-Bedchamber to Brenda, 1953-66 and has been the Mistress of the Robes since 1967.

Smith was educated at Eton. He joined the Fleet Air Arm in 1942 and served in WW II in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, then as a liaison officer to the US Ninth Air Force and then with a squadron in the North Atlantic. Smith joined the aircraft carrier HMS Indomitable, and served in the Far East with a Naval Air Squadron. Smith was in Ceylon at the end of WW II.

During that lot, John Smith would have become good mates with those of varying ranks who knew Gwynne and Dafydd.

After WW II, Smith went to New College, Oxford, at the time a recruiting ground for the British security services. Smith became an honorary fellow of New College in 1979. He met his future wife, Christian Carnegy, in Oxford and they married in 1952.

Smith and Christian had five children:

  • Serena Mary Smith who married Fatty
  • Bartholomew Evan Eric Smith (born 1 February 1955; founder of the Amber Foundation and West London Aero Club)
  • Adam Carnegy Eric Smith (born 1953)
  • Dido Smith
  • Emma Smith, who pre-deceased him

John Smith owned a property at No. 1, Smith Square in his former constituency. However, he resided at Shottesbrooke Park, near Maidenhead, the ancient home of the Vansittart family which he inherited from his father’s second cousin in 1962. Smith died in Windsor. He was survived by his wife, their two sons and two of their three daughters.

John Smith followed the family tradition of being a director of Coutts and Co, the private bank and a subsidiary of National Provincial, in 1950. He was the ninth generation of Smiths to work in the bank. Smith remained a Director for 43 years, until 1993.

Previous posts eg. ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’ discussed the money that was transferred via a Coutts cheque in the late 80s/early 90s to the Fiddington-based Homophobe who shocked ‘City Limits’. He had to be told what Coutts was (‘the Queen’s bank’) because he and his mates had never heard of Coutts and they thought that the cheque was a dud.

Fatty’s father-in-law joined the Boards of many other companies, including Rolls-Royce Limited, the Ottoman Bank and the Financial Times. He was also a Deputy-Governor of Royal Exchange Assurance. Fatty was awarded the OBE in 1964, the year that Dafydd achieved greatness as a Consultant Psychiatrist.

After the death of the Speaker of the Commons, Sir Harry Hylton Foster in 1965, Smith was elected to succeed him as MP or the Cities of London and Westminster. Smith represented the constituency until he stood down in 1970. Brenda awarded Smith a CBE in 1975.

Smith served as High Steward of Maidenhead and as Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire, 1975-78. Brenda knighted Smith in 1988 and then made him a Companion of Honour in 1994, the year that Matt Arnold died and Peter Howarth was jailed.

Smith served on Committees of the National Trust, 1952-95 and was Deputy Chairman, 1980-95. Previous posts have discussed the scams that the Gang ran in collaboration with the NT, including the summer work scheme for victims of the Gang at Penrhyn Castle back in the 1980s. Lucille Hughes is now volunteering for the NT, at Penrhyn Castle no less. I knew one Empowered Service User who volunteered repeatedly with the NT on Anglesey. It took me a while to realise that this young woman, like me, had been a witness not just to the Gang in north Wales but also to crime in celeb circles when she had worked in London after graduating. The Hergest Unit was systematically damaging her health including by ‘medication’ every time that she began to improve. The NT played a crucial role because her ambition was to return to full-time work in the business world and she kept trying to gear-up for that by volunteering with the NT. The NT would undermine her, elicit confrontations and report back to the Gang on her madness… I didn’t realise at the time how closely the NT and the Gang were linked.

John Smith served on the Standing Committee for Museums and Galleries from 1958 to 1966, the Historic Buildings Council from 1971 to 1978, the Redundant Churches Fund from 1972 to 1974, and the National Heritage Memorial Fund from 1980 to 1982.

Smith founded the Manifold Trust in 1962, to raise money for charity by buying long leases close to the date of their expiry. The venture was very successful, producing a “cataract of gold” which funded many of Smith’s charitable interests, including the Landmark Trust, which he and Lady Smith founded three years later and which still operates from their estate at Shottesbrooke. David Essex benefited along with the Smiths. Sir John identified and acquired properties for restoration, while Lady Smith supervised their fitting out, commissioning soft furnishings for each inspired by objects or design features associated with the buildings.

How did the house in Stogursey come to the attention of Fatty’s in-laws then? Perhaps Stogursey’s resident with close connections to People in High Places (see post ‘He Was Looking At I In A Funny Way…’) can enlighten us:

If Lady Elizabeth Gass Knows Nuzzing, someone else will be able to fill us in:

I have no idea who the man in the middle is between Lord Tom (who dressed up in his whites especially for the occasion) and John Major. He’ll be a famous cricketer but I only know those cricketers who used to go down the Anchor Inn in Combwich with Beefy Botham, drinking with the Homophobes and teenaged girls. Don’t Tell Kath! See previous posts.

John Smith was involved in canal restoration through his friendship with L. T. C. Rolt, and was a driving force behind the preservation of HMS Belfast, HMS Warrior and SS Great Britain.

Here are extracts from Fatty’s father-in-law’s obituary, written by Louis Jebb and published in the Indie on 1 March 2007:

John Lindsay Eric Smith, financier and philanthropist: born London 3 April 1923; director, Coutts and Co 1950-93; founder, Manifold Trust 1962; OBE 1964, CBE 1970; founder, Landmark Trust 1965; MP (Conservative) for Cities of London and Westminster 1965-70; Lord-Lieutenant of Berkshire 1975-78; Kt 1988; CH 1994; married 1952 Christian Carnegy (two sons, two daughters, and one daughter deceased); died Windsor, Berkshire 28 February 2007.

John Smith changed the fate of historic buildings in Britain. Houses and cottages, factories and workshops, disused stations and forts – yeoman buildings that 50 years ago were disparaged, ill used or disregarded – are now the subject of reality television programmes, of competitive efforts of restoration, and the source of national pride. Without the Landmark Trust, which Smith founded in 1965, and his no less significant contribution to the funding of other preservation projects through the Manifold Trust – for ships, museums, libraries and canals and countless other causes – the picture might be very different.

Smith’s achievement with the Landmark was not just in saving precious “minor” buildings but in using the trust and its work to re-educate public sensitivity towards architecture – and also towards a wider awareness of the environment.

As a champion of buildings, Smith complemented the work of two other, very different, visionaries. Nikolaus Pevsner had done a matchless survey with his unpretentious “Buildings of England” series of books for Penguin; while John Betjeman used his popularising gifts as writer and broadcaster to bring respectability to once-despised architectural genres.

But it was Smith, a generation younger, a financier and serious student of architecture, who saw the need, and found the means, to preserve the less exalted buildings of Britain (of whatever category) and to give people daily experience of living with them. Where Pevsner and Betjeman had been journalist pedagogues, Smith was a more private, practical prophet, with the drive and imagination to realise his dreams.

The idea for the Landmark had come to Smith while he was serving on the executive committee of the National Trust.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

He was driven, in 1965, to found the trust after trying, and failing, to take a hand in the preservation of a junction house designed by Thomas Telford on the Shropshire Union Canal. From the first, it was his intention to rent Landmark buildings out to people for holidays – in the hope that these holidaymakers might be affected by their stay in an historic building and return home to spread the word in favour of preservation.

The money came from the Manifold Trust, a charity set up by Smith and his wife, Christian, in 1962. The Manifold was the fruit of a meeting at the Royal Exchange Assurance (Smith was deputy governor), where he was struck by one unusual transaction. He spotted that the purchasing of the end of long-term leases could be a fruitful money-making source for a charitable trust. The National Trust turned down the idea,

How was the NT persuaded to say no to that money-spinner, thus leaving the door open for Fatty’s father-in-law’s crock of gold?

and Smith set up the Manifold to make use of it. For 30 years or more the Manifold produced what h
