Dr Adrianne Reveley – A Loving Tribute

In the comments following my post ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’, I provided a brief outline of a meeting that Brown and I had with Dr Adrianne Reveley, in Harley Street in approx 2011.

This was the short overview that I provided in the comment:

At one point, the lawyer who disappeared from my lawyer’s firm after I was threatened at gunpoint asked me to go for a independent psychiatric assessment. It was at the request of the Welsh Gov’t legal services after we raised the possibility of me suing the North West Wales NHS Trust when no one would meet us or settle, despite admissions of ‘serious failures’, ‘complete failure to provide care’ and ‘mistakes were made’.

The independent opinion was their choice of Top Doc, a Harley Street doc called Adrianne Reveley.

I took Brown with me. We sat in the Harley Street waiting room, after seeing those Low Paid Top Docs from Tommy’s driving along in their Rollers – yes there was a Rolls Royce parked outside of the building in which we were waiting. We were about the only Brits in there, everyone else looked as though they were from Middle Eastern states.

Then Reveley appeared. Saccharine smile, studiously soft ‘I’m a sensitive woman’ voice and in we went. Oh hilarious. I tried to tell her about the murder threats and the cars running me off the road. Adrianne raised an eyebrow and asked in her very soft sensitive voice if I really did think that these things had happened. Brown explained that he had been in the car on one of the occasions and yes, someone really had tried to run us off the Caernarfon bypass at 60 mph. Brown gave a full description of the incident and the car that had tried to kill us.

Adrianne then gave me a sensitive look and said that she’d like to ask me some questions that I might prefer to answer alone. I told her that Brown could hear anything she had to say, I had no secrets from Brown. Adrianne tried again.

‘It could be very very painful for you.’
‘It’s OK Adrianne, Brown can stay.’
‘But I want to ask you very very sensitive things, you really might prefer it if Professor Brown were to leave the room.’

Brown, ever the gentlemen, said ‘ooh it’s OK, I’ll go outside if you want me to.’

So I said to Brown ‘no Brown, you stay’. And I said to Adrianne, ‘Professor Brown stays. Professor Brown stays with me under all circumstances, throughout this whole interview.’

Sensitive Adrianne winced. She didn’t ask me any very very painful sensitive questions at all. She asked us what our next book was going to be about. And we told her. The NHS and the discourse of personal responsibility under neoliberalism of course…

The Assessment ended.

I have no idea what Adrianne said in her Report, but I can probably guess.

Everything fell apart when I was threatened with a gun and my lawyer scarpered.

Just to make it clear Adrianne, Brown was my bodyguard. Because when I was young and asked to go and see Top Doctors alone, I was sexually propositioned. On more than two occasions. When I complained I was called mad or a liar. Then I was threatened if I went in by myself. Or lies were told about what had happened during the consultation. I have been violently assaulted by Angels on more than four occasions and I know other patients, friends of mine, who have been violently or sexually assaulted by Angels and Docs.

So Brown was my bodyguard. Nothing is too painful or sensitive for his Male Ears to cope with, not even a silly patronising ruthless Lady Doctor simpering away in Harley Street. If I had ever taken part in the drug fuelled orgies that Dafydd et al recorded so diligently, I’d be quite happy to discuss them in front of Brown as well. In fact from what I’ve heard about myself, I think that Brown was at the said orgies as well, so obviously there wouldn’t be a problem discussing them, Brown could recall which one of us had had sex with the other 34 people and in what order, he’s got a good memory.

When I googled Adrianne the Sensitive Lady Doctor some time ago I could only find two references to cases in which she’d been involved. Adrianne had given evidence on behalf of the Great Ormond Street Hospital Top Doctor who had managed to miss Baby P’s broken back before Baby P died. Now I was told by an insider that the reason why that Top Doc missed Baby P’s broken back was that she never examined him…

Adrianne had also given evidence in support of a Top Doctor who was due to face a GMC fitness to practice hearing. Adrianne confirmed that he had such a phobia of appearing before the GMC that he should not be required to because of the danger to his mental health. The Top Doc was told that he would not have to face a GMC hearing. I expect that he cried when he told Adrianne about his phobia, it must have been so very painful for him.

Adrianne told Brown and I that when she was a consultant psychiatrist, Ben Goldacre was her junior Doc. Ben Goldacre is of course the psychiatrist who has made a name for himself exposing bad science and he’s done that very well. Ben has exposed much quackery. But the organised sexual abuse that psychiatry is colluding with on a massive scale? Ben hasn’t said a thing. Although he most certainly knows all about it.

I expect that it was all so painful that Ben couldn’t bear to discuss it, not even with Adrianne and her sensitive voice and Lady Doctor’s manner. Let alone write a book about it or publish an article in ‘The Guardian’. Of course if there was an attempt to murder Ben in the wake of him exposing what is going on, Adrianne will go all sensitive, ask him if he’s sure and then try and get the only other witness out of the room.’

 

Since I wrote those comments yesterday, a helpful person has sent me a you tube clip of Adrianne talking about the lovely time that she had when she was a pupil at Bedales School, 1961-66 – she was Adrienne Moore then – as well as a copy of the BEDALES ASSOCIATION & OLD BEDALIAN
NEWSLETTER 2018

https://www.bedales.org.uk/sites/default/files/OB%20Newsletter%202018%20print.pdf

What a mine of information that Newsletter is. Sadly Adrianne won’t be able to read the comments on this blog about her because mercifully she died in May last year. With Adrianne being so highly regarded and a full-on member of the Old Bedalians various associations, the Newsletter provides a touching obituary for Adrianne. It certainly illuminates the encounter that Brown and I had with her and it might explain why I was confronted with a gun after I met Adrianne:

Unusually for a Bedalian, Adrianne’s roots were in a Derbyshire
coal-mining village,

There was a long-standing abuse ring in Derbyshire which had linked up with Dafydd’s gang in north Wales by the early 1970s. John Jillings, who led the Jillings Investigation, was the former Director of Social Services for Derbyshire. When Jillings reported in 1996, he admitted that the abuse of children in care in Clwyd since 1974 had been serious, extensive, inexcusable and that organised abuse had probably been in existence in north Wales at least as long ago as the 1940s or 50s. Jillings refused to say whether he believed that a paedophile ring with links to locations outside of north Wales was in operation. The Jillings Report was made available to no-one but Clwyd County Council’s insurers and their legal advisers, as a result of the legal advice provided to the Council’s insurers, Municipal Mutual, who also insured the North Wales Police. The man who provided that legal advice was Michael Beloff QC, a colleague of Cherie Booth and a friend of Cherie’s and Miranda’s. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’

Other links to Derbyshire that I have discussed in this blog include the 1989 death of the actor Kevin Lloyd (Tosh Lines in ‘The Bill’) as a result of neglect and indifference when Kevin was a patient in a clinic for alcoholism and the suspicious death of his brother Terry, an ITN journo reporting from Iraq in 2003. Both the Lloyds grew up in Derbyshire and had knowledge of the abuse ring. The Lloyds’ father had grown up in north Wales, joined the police force and relocated to serve in the police force in Derbyshire. He had died himself when his sons were quite young in a suspicious road accident. See post ‘That’s Entertainment’.

Edwina Currie, the Tory MP for South Derbyshire, 1983-97, was a DoH Minister when organised abuse and criminality in the NHS and mental health services in north Wales and elsewhere was facilitated by Civil Service mandarins and concealed at the highest levels of Gov’t, as well as when Jimmy Savile was appointed the general manager of Broadmoor Hospital. See posts ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’, ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’ and ‘Rejoice!’. Edwina’s published Diaries include entries in which she notes that it is well-known that Sir Peter Morrison is a ‘noted pederast’ and that her and Theresa Gorman had a discussion on one occasion in the early 1990s which led to Edwina feeling ‘frightened’ at what might be done to conceal a major scandal in the Tory Party which Tories fear may explode imminently. See previous posts.

Edwina grew up in a Jewish family in Liverpool, part of Dafydd’s empire.

Some staff who abused children in north Wales had previously worked with children in Derbyshire.

 

from where her father rose to become a leading
pathologist. Her future medical career had family foundations.

Adrianne’s dad was a Top Doctor who would have known what was happening in Derbyshire and any links with other regions.

He was sufficiently successful to be able to send his daughter to Bedales in 1961 aged 13 years.

A Top Doctor earning a lot of money then, not just a bog standard Top Doc. Bedales did not and does not come cheap. We could ask how Dr Moore earned so much and why he chose Bedales for his daughter. Bedales had a reputation for being a school for posh, rich, slightly bohemian people. It wasn’t actually radical like Summerfield or Dartington Hall, but it was popular with luvvies, arty and literary folk and privileged people who liked to think that they were a bit edgy. Ma’am Darling and Lord Snowdon sent both of their children to Bedales. Ma’am Darling was a patient of Top Doctors Ann and Peter Dally, who throughout the 1970s, 80s and for a few years after that were selling class A drugs to any patient with enough money to pay and concealing crime with helpful Court reports. Ann Dally was assisted in flogging drugs by the corrupt Home Office mandarin Bing Spear, who provided the same service for Dafydd. See post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’. Bing and Peter Morrison both died in July 1995, four days apart. Lord Snowdon was from a Welsh family with a well-known lawyer, Top Doctor and an educationalist in it who visited the family seat near Caernarfon. Snowdon was bisexual and used rent boys. In old age Snowdon had a relationship with Marjorie Wallace, a Sunday Times journo who provided an umbrella for Dafydd et al when they were in greatest need, after I wrote to Marj telling her what Dafydd and the gang were doing. See post ‘One Dangerous Fucker’.

 

Over the next five years she enjoyed herself to such an extent that she formed a lifelong attachment to the school.

Some former pupils of Bedales have spoken of having a great time there. Others have alleged that behind the image of a liberal ‘permissive’ boarding school was a serious problem of sexualised bullying, with assaults and even rapes common and the teachers being fully aware of this but ignoring it. Sexualised bullying in schools is endemic, particularly in boarding schools and it was taking place in the comprehensive school that I attended in Bridgwater. But the people that I went to school with were not the children of the Royal Family and very few of them ended up in positions as adults where they could conceal links to a VIP sex abuse ring. I have blogged about the information that I’ve been given stating that there was a ring in Somerset targeting kids in Bridgwater, but we were just fodder, most of us we weren’t seen as kids who would be able to facilitate or conceal that ring when we were adults. Unless, like Brown and me and just a few of our former classmates, we had relatives involved in politics and we somehow got to university. Bedales however educated huge numbers of future artists, journos, luvvies, musicians, lawyers, Top Docs, politicians…

 

Whatever else she did there, it is worth noting that it was where she first fleetingly met Terence O’Sullivan, whom she was to marry some 30 years later, when he visited as part of a Winchester College athletics team.

I don’t know which Terence O’ Sullivan Adrianne met and later married, but like Bedales, Winchester College is an expensive public school in Hampshire. Winchester is more staid than Bedales and it has educated loads and loads of members of the ‘establishment’; senior officers in the Forces, churchmen, peers, judges, politicians, barristers, scientists, Top Doctors and in more recent years journos, film directors, media executives etc. When I quickly scanned the list of notable old Wykehamists, I recognised many names as being of those whom I know concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring as well as the criminality of Dafydd and the gang and I have blogged about many of them. Whereas a good proportion of Bedales former pupils turn up in leftie circles, Old Wykehamists are less likely to do so. Jeremy Corbyn’s right hand man Seumas Milne is an old Wykehamist who has been subjected to much derision for being an old Trot.

 Winchester College takes sport seriously and as well as the usual games that are played at posh boys’ schools, at Winchester Rackets is also played. Should the same person be Captain of Lord’s and Captain of Rackets, he is known as “Lord of Lords and Prince of Princes”, in allusion to Prince’s Club in London. The “Winchester Ice Club” was formed in 1904 by R.L.G. Irving; amongst its first members was George Mallory, who died on Everest in June 1924.

Some members of the 1924 British Mount Everest expedition; Mallory is highlighted
 George Mallory was born and grew up in Cheshire, although he went to school in Eastbourne and then to Winchester College. Mallory’s father was a clergyman from Cheshire and his mother was from Derbyshire. Mallory went to Magdalene College, Cambridge. There he became good friends with future members of the Bloomsbury Set, including Rupert Brooke, John Maynard Keynes, James Strachey and Lytton Strachey. Sir Clough Williams-Ellis who owned the Brondanw estate at Llanfrothen/Croesor married Amabel Strachey and throughout the middle years of the 20th century, friends and relations of the Bloomsbury Set stayed in cottages on the Brondanw estate, often for lengthy periods or had second homes there. The locals in the area were suffering badly at the hands of Dafydd’s gang and before Dafydd, Gwynne the lobotomist’s gang. See eg. post ‘The Village’. The Welsh Bloomsbury Set knew what Dafydd and Gwynne were up to but weren’t usually on the receiving end. In fact Bertrand Russell found unscrupulous Top Doctors most helpful when dealing with all those mad relatives that he was saddled with who kept claiming that he was shagging their wives or molesting them. See previous posts eg. ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’
Sir Charles Evans, the Principal of UCNW, 1958-84, when Dafydd and the gwerin were using the institution to run a trafficking ring, was a member of the first successful Everest team in 1953. Evans was also a Top Doctor who had worked on Merseyside. Although Mallory pre-dated Evans, Evans was mates with a whole network of climbers – many of whom were also Top Doctors (see post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’) and could trace his climbing and mentoring pedigree back to Mallory.
There were a number of climbers in north Wales who colluded with Dafydd’s gang and one female mental health patient who was sexually exploited and scandalously neglected by first the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and then the Hergest Unit – she was destitute the last time that I saw her in 2011 – was a close relative of a very well-known mountaineer. Everyone knew who her family were but she had been dumped with Dafydd and forgotten about while the UK media produced flattering features about her famous relative.

The motto of Winchester College – and New College, Oxford, that production line for members of the security services – is ‘Manners makyth man’. Don’t worry about the serious organised crime Lord Geoffrey, just remember to pass the port in the correct direction. Geoffrey and his Lady wife Elspeth were close lifelong friends of Sir Ronnie and Lady Waterhouse.

A 1579 wall-painting of The Trusty Servant by the poet John Hoskins hangs outside of the college kitchen at Winchester. It depicts a mythical creature with the body of a man, the head of a pig, its snout closed with a padlock, the ears of a donkey, the feet of a stag and holding working tools in his left hand. It is accompanied by allegorical verses on the virtues that pupils of the college were supposed to have. The college arms are shown in the background.

“The Trusty Servant” is also the name of a magazine published for Old Wykehamists.

Discovering that one of Dafydd’s gang’s principal umbrellas had such close links to Hampshire has reminded me of a conversation that I had with Dr D.G.E. Wood in the 1980s, when he was doing all that he could to shaft Brown and me but before we had realised that. Wood casually remarked one day that he had noticed from an ancient note on my medical records that for a while when I was little I lived in Overton and he was wondering if that was Overton-on-Dee because that was his favourite village. I had no idea that Info Was Being Gathered so I explained that no, it was Overton in Hampshire. I have blogged previously about me living near Lord Denning, Overton’s most famous resident – Lord Denning came from Hampshire and lived at Overton for decades – but I didn’t mention to Wood that I lived near Lord Denning and that I used to play with his dog etc. Wood never returned to the subject again and until now I presumed that the past proximity of people related to me to Lord Denning would have been the reason for Wood’s enquiries about Overton. However I wonder if he was thinking Bedales and Winchester as well? Dafydd and the gang drummed up support from all corners of the globe to silence Brown and me, I’m sure that the Paedophile Gang In Distress signal was sent out to Bedales and Winchester too.

Winchester College has educated a very great many people who later achieved influence and fame in a variety of fields, quite a few of whom have featured on this blog previously. Old Boys include:

Christopher Miles, film director

Richard Williamson, controversial bishop

Christopher Miles, film director

Anthony Gifford, 6th Baron Gifford, barrister

Richard Stagg, ambassador

Joss Whedon, film director

After Bedales, she studied medicine at Trinity College, Dublin, which was in
many ways returning home, because her family had moved to Ireland when
she was very young. Here again she chanced to meet the inadvertently
persistent Mr O’Sullivan, who, not surprisingly, had Irish connections.

The late Professor Fergus Lowe, who built his empire at Bangor University entirely on his knowledge of the crimes of Dafydd’s gang and the many who colluded with Dafydd et al, was a graduate of Trinity College Dublin. Fungus arrived at the Dept of Psychology at UCNW at the end of the 1960s to do his PhD. In later life Fungus enjoyed telling people that when he graduated he wanted to either be a film director or a psychologist and the pull of psychology won. See previous posts. I do not believe that Fungus turned down a future career as Stephen Spielberg to do a PhD in a semi-derelict building in Bangor with four or five clueless idiots – which was what the Dept of Psychology in Bangor was before Fungus overthrew Dafydd years later and took over – working under Dafydd’s wing while they built up a people trafficking business. John Allen and Dafydd began investing in children’s homes in north Wales in 1968 and business soon boomed because their mates eg. John Tilley had been preparing the ground since the mid-1960s (see post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’). Fungus either knew that Dafydd et al had a Cunning Plan and Fungus came over to join them or Fungus was so hopeless academically that he had to doss down with Dafydd et al for postgrad work.

Another key figure in facilitating the Wales arm of the Westminster Paedophile Ring was Dr Brian Gibbons, Labour AM for Aberavon, 1999-2011 and Health Minister in the Welsh Gov’t, 2005-07. Gibbons was born in Dublin and trained at NUI Galway. He relocated from Ireland to Calderdale in Yorkshire – the site of the ring with which Jimmy Savile was involved which had links to Dafydd et al – to train as a GP in 1976 and arrived in south Wales as a GP in the mid-1980s, at one point sharing a practice with Dr Julian Tudor Hart. See previous posts eg.’In Memoriam – Dr Julian Tudor Hart’ and ‘The Wind Of No Change’.

Gibbons’s father, Dr Hugh Gibbons, practised as a Top Doctor in Ireland and served as the Fianna Fail TD for Roscommon/south Leitrim, 1965-77. Hugh Gibbons studied medicine at University College, Galway. He moved to Keadue in North Roscommon in the mid 1940s. Gibbons’ wife Josephine (nee Lee) from Cootehall died shortly after his retirement in the late 1980s. Gibbons ‘loved the Keadue, Arigna and Ballyfarnon area’ and his Top Doctoring ‘brought him into close contact with the people of the area’. Gibbons was a local community activist in the Keadue area. He was an enthusiastic footballer when young and played for County Roscommon in the 1940s.

In addition to Brian the People Trafficker, Hugh Gibbons had three other sons, Luke, Conal and Hugh, as well as daughters JoAnn and Berna. Luke Gibbons is Professor of Irish Studies at Notre Dame University, Indiana, USA; Conal Gibbons is a District Court Judge in Ireland and Hugh Gibbons is a lecturer in Computer Science at Trinity College, Dublin. JoAnn is a Psychologist at Rutgers University in New Jersey, USA and Berna is a solicitor with Kevin Kilrane Solicitors in Mohill.

Do Brian the People Trafficker’s siblings know what he has been part of?

 

Taoiseach Bertie Ahern has described the late Dr Hugh Gibbons as one of ‘Roscommon’s favourite sons‘. Ahern led the tributes when Hugh Gibbons died in Nov 2007, describing Gibbons as ‘one of Roscommon’s favourite sons’ who ‘in community life, in politics and in his profession…made a sizeable difference. He will be long remembered in his native county for the positive and generous role he played in its development’. The Taoiseach added that ‘Dr Gibbons was born in Strokestown in the seminal year of 1916 and as a young man he distinguished himself as both a sportsman and a scholar. As a community doctor and District Medical Officer in the Boyle area, Hugh was hardworking and a strong advocate of improved medical facilities. In this role, he helped countless families across Roscommon. Hugh will, of course, always be a hero to all football supporters. He won back-to-back All-Ireland medals in 1943 and 1944. That side contained some of the true greats of Gaelic Games – players of the of Jimmy Murray, Donal Keenan, Owensie Hoare…,” The Taoiseach went on to say that ‘in the 1960s, Dr Gibbons brought to politics the same qualities of loyalty, enthusiasm and dedication that he had previously shown as a doctor and as a footballer. ”

Hugh Gibbons stood for Fianna Fail in a by-election in 1964 and while he was not successful on that occasion, he established a solid base for the next General Election. In 1965, Hugh was elected to the Dail alongside his party colleague, Brian Lenihan. Hugh Gibbons retired at the dissolution of the Dáil in 1977. 

Another obituary stated: ‘The late Dr. Hugh Gibbons contribution to the GAA community and in particular to St. Ronan’s GAA community and in particular to St. Ronan’s GAA Club has been described as “immense” by the club’s Chairman. Mr Sean Martin, who took over from Dr. Gibbons as St. Ronan’s chairman in 1997, said that he had been “a pillar” in the local community. Dr. Gibbons co-founded St. Ronan’s GAA Club with Paddy Guihen from Arigna in the mid-fifties. Both men are the clubs’ joint-presidents. “He (Dr. Gibbons) was hugely devoted to the club’s underage structure. A lot of changes occurred during his time as chairman. I remember him in Ballyfarnon on cold Saturday mornings in his overcoat looking at various players. He was a great help to mentors and he was also a great man to go to games,” said Mr Martin. Dr Gibbons’s interest in younger players made him an inspirational figure within St. Ronan’s. In 2003 the club presented him with its inaugural Hall of Fame award to honour his dedication to the club’s cause. “He has been the backbone of the club for so long. He always followed the progress of our younger players and nothing would give him greater pleasure than seeing a St. Ronan’s player make any Roscommon team,” pointed out Mr Martin. The current chairman also praised Dr Gibbons’s ability to look after injured players at matches.” It didn’t matter where the player was from. If a player picked up a serious injury and Dr. Gibbons was present, he would always administer medical attention. All the hospital reports would later point our that the medical attention from Dr Gibbons at the scene was second to none,” he added.

Ah Brian the People Trafficker’s dad he was wonderful!

On the GAA front he won two All Irelands with Roscommon. The Fianna Fail Deputy said that Dr Gibbons was one of Roscommons’ favourite sons and served his county as a Dáil Deputy from 1965-1977. “He was a life long member of Fianna Fail and continued actively with the party at organisations level after he retired from national politics,” said Deputy Finneran.

Dr Gibbons had a great affinity and understanding of people and he was always promoting his locality. Deputy Finneran also recalled that Dr Gibbons had spent some time as a young doctor in his home parish of Ballyforann and he was full of praise for the time and advice which Dr Gibbons had given to him over the years. Deputy Finneran also explained that he had attended Summerhill College in Sligo with one of Dr Gibbon’s sons, Luke. “Dr Gibbons was originally from the Strokestown area but also became part of the community in the Keadue, having particular interest in the village of Keadue and its environs, the O’Carolan Harp Festival and St. Ronan’s GAA Club. “

The obituaries mention Dr Hugh Gibbons’ sisters Bridget, Betty and Dympna and their husbands and children. There is a massive extended family of Brian the People Trafficker across the water which stretches as far as Rutgers University in the US.

There are records of yet further tributes paid to the People Trafficker’s dad: Strokestown area Cllr Eugene Murphy has joined in the glowing tributes paid to the late Dr. Hugh Gibbons. Cllr Murphy who is also chairman of the Fianna Fáil group of councillor’s on Roscommon County Council, said that Dr. Gibbons was “an honourable man who had his finger on the pulse of the local community”. The late Dr. Hugh Gibbons was originally from the Ballybeg area of Strokestown where the family had a public house.

They’ll have known everyone.

Cllr Murphy noted that even though Dr Gibbons had retired from national politics in 1977 and medicine in the late 1980s he still remained committed to his passions, including of course, sport. “He never gave up his involvement in the GAA, politics or his work in the community. ….He noted that he was involved in many sectors of community life in Keadue most notable the O’Carolan Harp Festival, Tidy Towns and church renovation works”.

Cllr Murphy said that Dr. Gibbons believed in total honesty and he was the most sincere and honourable man. “He was a true representative of the people, he really knew what people wanted and needed.

Brian the People Trafficker was very keen on telling people what was good for them as the genocide continued in Wales…

He was highly respected across the political divide….said Cllr Murphy.

Well his son certainly wasn’t.

Perhaps Dr Hugh was very different to his vile son Brian the People Trafficker, but if he wasn’t, Hugh Gibbons’s enthusiasm for youth football could be very worrying in the wake of the recent convictions of football coaches and associated people for abusing youngsters.

One of the nastiest most abusive members of Dafydd’s gang with whom Gibbons colluded was the Gwynedd social worker Keith Fearns. For years Fearns was manager of the Bangor Ladies Football Club, who were nearly all social work students or newly qualified social workers and Fearns and the Ladies used to go touring in improbable places such as the former Eastern Bloc.

 

Another member of Dafydd’s gang was an Irish Angel, Bridget Lloyd, who was for many years a CPN in the Arfon Community Mental Health Team which was led by Fearns. Before joining Fearns and the thugs of the Arfon Team, Bridget assisted Dafydd’s gang in illegally detaining people in the psych wards of Ysbyty Gwynedd and refusing to let them leave until they’d been left alone in a room with Dafydd. Subsequent complaints would be met with yet more threats and illegal imprisonment.

One of Bridget’s finest hours was her complaint to the North Wales Police that F had sexually threatened her, that I had joined in and that she was so frightened of bumping into me in Bangor that she carried a personal alarm with her at all times lest I ‘attack’ her and ‘her young children’ and that if I was not imprisoned for these heinous crimes, Gwynedd Community Health Trust would provide a safe house for Bridget and her family. F and I were subsequently acquitted. I now have a copy of a memo sent by Bridget to her managers at the same time as she made her complaint to the police in which she states that she wasn’t frightened of me, that she’d only met me once and that was years ago and that she didn’t think that I’d recognise her if I saw her.

Illegal imprisonment, assisting horrible old traffickers in behaving improperly towards young women whom they had abducted and perjury was not the zenith of Bridget’s career though. That surely occurred when after Bridget had spent many, many months completely neglecting one of her patients, a farmer on Anglesey who was severely clinically depressed and who constantly told his wife that he was going to kill himself, Bridget and one of her pals finally went out to the farm and removed his shotgun. The farmer’s wife found him dead a few hours later, having shot himself with his other gun, which Bridget knew that he had and had left in his possession. At least everyone presumed that he had shot himself. He was dead and there was a gun at the scene. The farmer’s wife worked at Bangor University, in the School of Education, alongside all those former north Wales teachers who knew about the paedophile ring but have spent decades pretending that they didn’t, some of whom were married to/related to/friends with those we know and love and were involved with the attempt to force me out of teaching in 2002…

Ria Stanley, a senior Angel at the Hergest Unit, was also Irish. Ria wasn’t nasty and offensive a la Bridget, but she worked with the gang and she knew what they were doing. Ria used to constantly tell me to stop saying that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients because ‘it isn’t true’. Yes it was Ria and you knew that it was.

Ah when Irish eyes are firmly in denial!!!

When Mary Wynch was unlawfully imprisoned by Dafydd in Denbigh, she remembered a Dr Kieren Lynch from Ireland. Kieran Lynch was around in north Wales for quite a while after Mary won her case but then he disappeared.

 

From Dublin, [Adrianne] moved to America to train in psychiatry,

Anyone for Prof Wilfred Abse’s US network, the Wilf of the famous Abse family of sexual abusers who were based in south Wales and part of Dafydd’s gang (see post O Jones, O Jones)?

 

before returning to begin her long career at the Maudsley Hospital.

Adrianne would therefore have joined them all at the Maudsley in the mid-late 1970s. At the time the Maudsley was full of Dafydd’s mates, some of whom were every bit as mad and abusive as Dafydd (see eg. posts ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ and ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy’). Dafydd’s former boss Dr Bob Hobson, who was one of those running the abuse network at the Maudsley, was at the Maudsley until 1974, when Bob relocated to Manchester and developed the abuse network there (see post ‘The Mentor). Tony Francis did a stint at the Maudsley in the mid 1970s and Professor Bob Woods also passed through the Maudsley. They both ended up as members of the gang in north Wales.

Professor Anthony Clare read medicine at University College Dublin and graduated in 1966, just before Adrianne arrived there. Clare subsequently worked at the Maudsley for many years and then with Dafydd’s other mates at Bart’s. Clare then returned to Trinity College, Dublin, subsequently worked at St Patrick’s Hospital Dublin and then at St. Edmundsbury Hospital in Lucan, County Dublin.

Anthony Clare was the go-to media tart for psychiatry throughout the 1980s and 90s and everyone thought that he was a lovely caring man. He didn’t let on that he knew about Dafydd and the gang, about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and about Jimmy Savile’s offending, even when he interviewed Edwina Currie and Jimmy Savile on ‘In The Psychiatrist’s Chair’. Clare obviously wasn’t tempted to question Savile on air about the rapes of sectioned psychiatric patients or the sexual assaults on boys at Bryn Estyn and other places yet, alone carry out a citizen’s arrest on Savile. Instead Clare let the stupid old git spout his usual drivel about being a pirate, about women giving him brain damage and about dry cleaning his dead mothers clothes so they’d be all nice for her years after her death. Clare should have given Adrianne a guest spot on Radio 4, she could have made sensitive noises at the old bastard.

Here he is, looking all sympathetic, a sort of chisel-jawed Adrienne:

Clare suddenly stopped doing media work, just when he was having such a good time as well, in the early 1990s. He left London and returned to Ireland at about the same time. Why ever might that have been?

In Oct 2007 Anthony Clare died suddenly of a heart attack in Paris at the age of 64. Just like that.

 

Adrianne became a world-renowned researcher into schizophrenia.

So that is why the care and treatment for ‘schizophrenia’ is still so poor and the outcomes for so many people with that diagnosis so bleak. I don’t know what Adrianne was researching when she led the world, but it is acknowledged that there have been no substantial advances with regard to understanding anything about the ’causes’ of schizophrenia, even after all these years of people thrashing about in just about every trope possible. ‘Schizophrenics’ today are usually ‘treated’ in exactly the way that they were before Adrianne went to Bedales; they are given large doses of anti-psychotics, often exactly the same anti-psychotics that Gwynne the lobotomist and Dafydd gave them in 1959.

The process of the diagnosis of schizophrenia is often as flaky these days as it was before Adrianne led the world as well.

 

She was Lead Consultant within the National Psychosis Unit at the Maudsley,
where she offered a second opinion service for diagnostics, management and treatment difficulties for those with severe mental illness, including
the psychoses (eg, major depression, bipolar illness and schizophrenia).

Yes, I have read about that Unit. Part of the empire of Dafydd’s crazy Maudsley mates. The National Psychosis Unit was busy diagnosing severe mental illness in a whole variety of distressed people, including those who insisted on complaining of having been sexually abused as kids in care or within the psychiatric system. Adrianne did in that Unit exactly what she was asked to do by the Welsh Gov’t’s legal services when Brown and I popped into Harley Street to see her: she was offering second opinions on people who had complained about her colleagues, including Dafydd and the gang in north Wales.

She also ran a rehabilitation unit for patients with these disorders, and a
specialist women’s service.

The Wimmin’s Service at the Maudsley was extra-special, I have discussed it before on this blog but I didn’t realise that sensitive wincing Adrianne was in charge of it. The Wimmin’s Service was full of wimmin who had been sexually abused or exploited and one of the rehab wards is named after Jim Birley, one of the maddest and most dangerous pals of Dafydd’s from the Maudsley. Birley was linked to MIND when they were concealing Dafydd’s wrongdoing and he was a mate of Lord David Ennals, who as a Home Office and DHSS Minister and then Secretary of State for the DHSS, 1976-79, under Jim Callaghan, colluded with Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts. Jim Birley established various community services for mentally ill people in Southwark. Southwark Borough Council sent numerous kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales and continued to do so even after the most serious complaints, including that of a boy who was forced to have sex with men at gunpoint. The local Labour MP who knew about this and who was presiding over an utterly corrupt fiefdom was Lord Bob Mellish. See post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’.

It is always female traffickers who run services for trafficked Wimmin now, because the female traffickers Care and Wimmin prefer to talk to another woman. It’s why I was doubly weird and dangerous, because I always rated the Hergest whistleblower higher than his colleagues and he was in possession of testicles. Discussions were held about my Aggression and Hostility to Wimmin, who were Frightened Of Me. Except that they weren’t, as my documentation clearly shows, they were simply told to say that in police statements and in Court because the drunken thugs with knackers were beginning to look a little foolish with their allegations of someone with the body of a weak, feeble woman but clearly the heart and stomach of a king and of a King of England too, a really mad one at that, presenting a threat to their lives and limbs. The accounts of my Aggression and Hostility to Wimmin could be translated as ‘she is not as easily conned as the others, she knows that the Wimmin are accomplices and she’s a fucking feminist too, it’s getting very difficult’.

I expect that Adrianne had something to say about my lack of Female Bonding with her in that Report to the Welsh Gov’ts legal services. If only I had talked to Adrianne about my love of chocolate and massages and Evening Primrose Oil and how Men Don’t Understand and finding my G spot, we’d have got on splendidly. I could have asked Adrianne for her Top Tips on Boosting My Confidence when I have to talk in front of All The Men and other distressing life events which people like Lesley Griffiths had to overcome before they could become AMs and Welsh Gov’t Ministers while they ignored a vicious paedophile gang. See post ‘History Repeats Itself, First As Tragedy, Second As Farce’.

When I used to work in the kitchen of the Snowdonia Parc pub, the landlady Julia, who was notorious for being fierce and difficult, maintained that she refused to employ male chefs because ‘all they do is scratch their balls and drink the beer’. Which I thought was quite a touching gender stereotype. I cannot imagine that Julia ever felt nervous talking in front of All The Men, which was probably why she was running a pub and not working as a Health Minister for the Welsh Gov’t.

 

Living in London again, one day she met a man walking a dog with its leg in plaster, with whom she paused to chat. Surely she realised from some distance that this was the inescapable Terence again. However, at this point, she was married to Michael Reveley and raising her family of two boys, Colin and Tom, both destined to become Bedalians.

I’m not sure to which Michael Reveley that Adrianne was married, but I think that it is the Michael Reveley who is a Prof of Psychiatry at the University of Leicester who in 2005 published a paper in the BMJ entitled ‘Randomised controlled trial of animal facilitated therapy with dolphins in the treatment of depression’, which was carried out in Honduras. I bet that Adrianne loved it, it will have surpassed Mindfulness. However, if one goes to the website ‘I Want Great Care’, one can find a detailed account written in 2016 by a patient who experienced abuse when young and who was unfortunate enough to have been treated by a Leicester Mental Health Team headed by Michael Reveley. This could have been written by a Hergest Unit patient it is so familiar:

Let me tell you about Professor Michael Reveley and the Mental Health Team within which he worked in Leicester. I suffered child abuse in the Fifties and Sixties consisting of beatings and terrorization at the hands of an extremely malicious father. By the age of sixteen I was exhausted. I couldn’t do my school work and I couldn’t work at a job. I fled the familly home and lived in god forsaken bedsitters in Bradford, friendless and penniless apart from the pittance that was Social Security at that time. When you suffer child abuse you don’t grow up to become Rudolph Valentino. Your ability to make friends and have girlfriends is all but destroyed. My life was a living hell of anxiety, depression, poverty and bad dreams. In 1994 I was living in a dilapidated bungalow in Leicester. My neighbour was aggressive and paranoid. He would make noise all the time which made life hell and would come and bang on the front door with his fist when his illness told him to. The police refused to help being themselves out of sympathy with vulnerable people. Environmental Health didn’t help me. They would turn up two hours after I called them having had to attend previous calls. They never caught the neighbour at it and then a manager got shirty with me and shouted at me in the privacy of my own property. At the same time my mother kept phoning me and giving me her take on my childhood abuse. She had always defended my father and lied for him. She would drive me mad with her take on my life and I smashed the phone a couple of times after talking to her. The anxiety and stress at that time in my life were unbearable and I contacted the Mental Health Service for help. They allocated me a psychiatric social worker. He had great difficulty understanding the hell that I was going through. Because he didn’t hear the next door neighbour, at the infrequent times that he was round my property, he concluded that there wasn’t a problem and that I was just mentally ill. The Mental Health Team back at the hospital, headed by Dr Michael Reveley decided to test out my claim that the neighbour was noisy. Somebody parked outside our properties for half an hour one day, didn’t hear anything and the team decided I was paranoid. No amount of reasoning with them could dissuade them from this nonsense. Time passed and nothing was done to help. One day when the anxiety and stress from the neighbour were greatest I broke down. I smashed my possessions including the phone, the television and the computer. The Mental Health Team then decided that I could do with a spell in hospital. I went into the Brandon Unit, Ward 37 in 1995 hoping for help and a cessation of the noise pollution and bullying I was suffering from at home. I was allocated a nurse, key worker. This woman talked nonsense about life and problems all the time. That was the first experience of life on the ward. Then I found that a large proportion of the staff on the ward, about 60% were just simply unpleasant. They had little time for your anxiety and talked rot about virtually everything. One day someone, presumably a patient, made a mess in the kitchen. I walked in there and there was milk spilled on the side with a couple of slices of bread resting in it. Someone had obviously had a hard time and just lost it. The next thing the kitchen was locked by the cleaner so that none of us could enter it. A note was put on the door saying, “Patients! Due to this kitchen being left in a disgusting state the kitchen will be locked for the next two weeks!” By what authority had the cleaner taken this action? The staff were frequently grumpy. The ward accountant used to come at certain times and do the books at a desk that was in the corridor and main entrance space. One day I sat on a chair not far from her desk and watched the people passing by in the hope of a friendly conversation. The accountant frowned at me and told me, in no uncertain terms, not to sit near her. If you tried talking to the ward staff they talked nonsense about life and problems the accent being on your always being in the wrong. Most of the time they were just out looking for trouble. The point is that everything you ever said was being judged by people who had lower IQ’s than you. At that time my mother would ring up every few days wanting to know how I was. The reader of this passage will understand why I didn’t want to be bothered by her. When people came and told me that she was on the phone I would say, “Please tell her that I don’t want to speak to her.” One day I was in the toilet. The key worker somehow knew that I was in there, I don’t know how, and came and stood outside the door telling me that my mother was on the phone. I ignored her. She kept on. She kept calling me. Soon afterwards, the Ward Manager, a new name for the Sister, came up to me and offered me a magic marker. She said I was to write on the board by the phone that if there was a call for me that it should be ignored. There was no need for this. The manager was just deliberately putting me in a spot, either I wrote the message or I would be in her bad books. I knew that if I never answered my mum’s calls she would become ill and start asking for the staff. I told the manager that I would not be doing as she asked. She looked at me with screwed up eyes and it was obvious that I had said the wrong thing. I had been put into a situation that I couldn’t win and now she had it in for me. Later I was in the office for some reason and the staff were going on at me to write the above message. I became angry at the position they were putting me in and lost my temper with them. I gave them a piece of my mind and left. Revely was a hawkish man given to shouting at patients. His thing was to think up a case against you and then confront you with it while being aggressive and raising his voice. This is not something that his colleagues would notice since the bully, like my father, is always nice to everyone else and maltreats the person or persons that he has decided are vulnerable. If you try to talk to other people about it they say, “What? What are you talking about?” One day I was in consultation with Reveley and he raised his voice to me: “What’s this I hear about you losing your temper with people for no reason and then shouting at them. What have you got to say to the fact that you have a paranoid illness?!” I was stunned. The team had already decided that I was paranoid and now the ward staff had obviously done their work. And, of course, none of it was true. I was tongue tied after this attack. I just couldn’t find words to explain how he had been duped by his staff. When I eventually tried to talk to Revely about their notion that I was suffering from paranoia Revely was so set in his opinion that I was unable to talk sense to him. It was hopeless. I was suffering from paranoid people everywhere, the neighbour, the police, Environmental officers, the grumpy Mental Health staff, a hawkish consultant and it was me who was being bullied with a diagnosis of paranoia! I wrote to Reveley and the Mental Health Team and told them that their diagnosis was wrong giving reasons. I never received a reply. In the end, I could see that the Mental Health System is corrupt and I left one day without telling anyone. I went to live back in the hell that I had left several weeks earlier. I had no other option. I contacted a mental health patients organisation operating in Leicester. They promised me the Earth and went to a tribunal hearing. Here they made an abject mess of my case. Reveley was exonerated by all the other psychiatrists on the panel and my advocate was made a fool of. This showing that psychiatry is infested through and through. So, if you think that psychiatric hospital is a retreat, a haven where you can recuperate, think again. If you think doctors are kind and understanding, well too many of them aren’t. If you think that psychiatric staff are helpful, kind and not grumpy and nasty, too many of them are of the latter type. If you are sorry for cleaners who are paid a pittance, too many of them are unpleasant. If you think the Environmental Health know what they’re doing, think again. If you think the police are upholders of law and order, think again. As for neighbours you probably know what they can be like. My experience was that at a time when I was going through some of the hardest times of my life I was made worse by the Mental Health System, headed in this case by Dr Michael Reveley.

That is the reality for patients rather than dolphin therapy, in the way that aggression and abuse in Bangor was the reality rather than Mark Williams’s Mindfulness.

There was a branch of the Westminster Paedophile Ring in Leicestershire and it was being concealed by the Top Doctors in Leicester, the University of Leicester, the City Council, Social Services, Leicester MIND, the criminal justice system, the education system and the Councillors and politicians. See previous posts. The gang was directly linked to Dafydd’s gang and one of the Leicester gang, Dr James Earp, concealed Dafydd and the gang’s criminality in 1987. See post ‘An Expert From England’. There has been scandal after scandal in Leicester mental health services, including one in which a murderer escaped from Earp’s secure unit with help from insiders, after escaping a prison sentence with the assistance of some bent Top Doctors and lawyers. There has also been at least one patient death as a result of serious failings on the ward that the writer of the bad experiences with Michael Reveley documented.

 

As for Michael and Adrianne’s gorgeous talented children, not only did Colin and Tom become Bedalians, but Colin Reveley appears on the University of Sussex website as a member of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science. In Nov 2017, Colin gave two short talks at UCL. The spiel on the UCL website stated:

I’m giving two short talks. The talks are both about my work with diffusion MRI scans of ex-vivo primate brains in a high field scanner. In this work we explore the relationship of neuroanatomy to diffusion imaging. Ex-vivo brains offer the capability to scan for extended periods, yielding very high SNR and spatial resolution as high as 100um isotropic. This allows us to look at what dMRI can do in principle rather than limited by clinical constraints. Ex-vivo brains also afford the opportunity to look at the scanned brain under a microscope. Using both methods together can elucidate the relationship of dMRI methods to the structure of the brain, and this has wide ramifications for in-vivo imaging studies in neuroscience, psychology and medicine.

Can We Use Diffusion MRI to Infer Cortical Connectivity?

In this talk we examine the scope and limits of diffusion tractography for estimating point to point connectivity between brain regions. We look at the factors which determine the behavior of tractography. We find that one of the most important factors is the existence of fiber systems lying underneath the gray matter that have been previously overlooked. This is a potted version of my paper in PNAS in 2015 (http://www.pnas.org/content/112/21/E2820.abstract)

dMRI Correlates of Gray Matter Structure : Pilot Work

Historically, it has been thought that diffusion in gray matter is isotropic. More recently, evidence of changes in anisotropy in the cortex from the white matter boundary to the pial surface has accumulated. This talk shows pilot work in which we demonstrate that diffusion tensors in gray matter show rich variety that can be linked to subtle anatomical features. It seems likely that diffusion imaging is capable of identifying anatomical regions (like motor or sensory) in the cortex, or detecting markers for changes in tissue structure caused by diseases.

So it rather sounds as though the son of dolphin therapist Michael and the ever so sensitive Adrianne has been conducting experiments on the brains of monkeys/apes/chimps or similar creatures. Perhaps the sort of experiments which got the Institute of Psychiatry such a very bad name.

Colin provided a short biography:

I’ve studied a range of topics in Computer Science and Neuroscience. I would presently describe myself as a computational neuroanatomist, but my focus is on anatomy rather than the development of novel computational methods. I am associate faculty in the department of informatics at Sussex University and guest researcher at the Neurophysiology Imaging core facility at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland USA.

Colin Reveley will know the work of Sarah-Jayne Blakemore at UCL who has been using brain scans to demonstrate the beneficial effects of Mindfulness, on a Wellcome funded project in collaboration with Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University. When Sarah-Jayne was a PhD student and a post-doc many of her mentors and colleagues were working at or had worked at the Institute of Psychiatry at the Maudsley Hospital, when Colin’s mum worked there. See previous posts. Mindfulness was a research fraud perpetrated by Dafydd’s colleague Mark Williams when Mark worked at Bangor University in the late 1980s. Dafydd’s gang were abusing kids in care and patients at the time and there were sky-high levels of suicide and self-harm. I remember it well.

One of Mark Williams’s team who carried out the  Mindfulness fraud with him was Isobel Hargreaves, a Gwynedd social worker who lived near Bethesda. I lived near Bethesda myself at the time and Isobel’s husband Ralph Oxley had taught me when I was an undergrad. We weren’t living in Bethesda Maryland, we were living in Bethesda, Gwynedd.

Like the Principal of UCNW at the time, Sir Charles Evans – who was also a Top Doctor – a lot of staff and students at Bangor were keen climbers. The UCNW climbing club was called BUMS (Bangor University Mountaineering Society). BUMS was not a very good advert for Sir Charles, there were allegations that students were not being taught properly, that practices were dangerous and fears that a student would be killed. In 1985 there was an accident on a BUMS climb and a student was killed.

One student who was an enthusiastic member of BUMS was Stel Farrar, although she had a different surname when she was in BUMS. Stel was in the same Dept as Ralph Oxley and I, the Plant Biology Dept. Stel had a relationship with John Farrar, one of the lecturers, moved in with him and was then given a job as Farrar’s research assistant. They later married. Another lecturer in the Plant Biology Dept was married to Dr D.G.E. Wood and another lecturer was having sex with school girls from Bangor. The Head of Dept was Prof Geoff Sagar, who was also Vice-Principal of UCNW while Dafydd’s gang used the institution as a vehicle for the trafficking business. One of the Profs in Plant Biology, Peter Grieg-Smith, was a former Cambridge colleague of Prof Edred Henry Corner, Douglas Hurd’s uncle. For more details of Botany Bay in Bangor and the many links between Plant Biology and Dafydd’s gang, see previous posts.

A well-known figure in climbing and the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team who also taught me  when I was an undergrad – geology rather than plant biology though – was Tony Jones. Tony Jones was a very racist white South African who was overtly butch and did a lot of macho things with male students. Jones had a little clique around him who thought that he was great, but other students – one of whom I was friendly with – found him a nightmare, because he would conduct vindictive vendettas against people whom he did not like. He was able to do this very easily because Jones was the Senior Warden of the Halls of Residence and just decided what the rules were. Tony Jones was friendly with some corrupt police officers in Bangor and for a laugh they agreed to Tony Jones’s suggestion to arrest a student whom he didn’t like and keep him in the cells overnight, then chuck him out the next day without charging him. I have no idea WHY Tony Jones and the Bangor Police decided that this student needed harassing…

There were questions among the students as to whether Tony Jones, who was always described as ‘liking boys’, was actually involved sexually with young men and boys or whether he was simply like one of the characters in the ‘Wind In The Willows’, whom Brown described as ‘homophilic’, ie. their whole world was one of male friendships and social activities but not sexual.

In early 1993, a bizarre event of a north Wales nature occurred. Tony Jones aka Dr Anthony Stewart Gervaise Jones MBE, a marine geologist and climber who had lived in Wales for decades and who was unknown in the rest of the UK except within climbing circles, was featured on ‘This Is Your Life’. Michael Aspel was very professional and smooth with his hosting of the programme, but one could see that Aspel wasn’t very comfortable with Tony Jones, probably because Tony Jones had called someone a nigger in the green room over the drinks and nibbles and Aspel knew that there might be no restraining Jones on live prime time TV. However Tony Jones didn’t thump anyone or insult a black person, although apart from his sister, I think that all of his guests were male. At the end of the programme, a whole collection of Tony Jones’s Boys trooped on to the stage and sat in the chairs and one of them gave a little spiel to Aspel about how Tony was Like A Father To The Boys. Unless they were black or he felt like having them wrongfully arrested that was.

Tony Jones had never earned his living as a crooner and he’d never performed at the London Palladium and I never saw another unknown geologist star on ‘This Is Your Life’. I wonder what Aspel thought was going on.

Tony Jones was constructed as a Hero and Students’ Friend at a time when Dafydd and the gang were in desperate need of good PR to detract from the recent North Wales Police investigation into allegations of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire which was being concealed by people in High Places. ‘This Is Your Life’ starring Gervaise was screened early in 1993 but it was filmed in 1992. The police investigation was closed in 1992 with an assurance that there was no evidence of any paedophile ring.

It was at about this time that the gwerin launched an attack on a senior sociologist at Bangor University who had spilt their pints and all hell broke out, ‘The Guardian’ helpfully publishing false allegations that the senior sociologist had discriminated against Welsh speakers when making appointments. One person who was caught in the cross-fire was the sociologist who later married Merfyn Jones, who when he was VC of Bangor University and Chairman of the Betsi Board, came under sustained gunfire from the gwerin, assisted by many in Gov’t, after his wife died in the ‘care’ of Dafydd’s gang at the Walton Centre on Merseyside. See previous posts eg. ‘Badlands’, ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’.

Since I blogged about Tony Jones, I have been told that there were suspicions that he was abusing boys although I have not received evidence of this. I have also been told to follow up Jones’s possible contacts with Gov’t Ministers at that time who had responsibility for environmental matters, because Jones might have had influence there. Although it would be ironic if he did; in 1988, I was told by someone who had just moved to Gwynedd that they had witnessed a rude man make a point of stomping across an area of valuable ecological land which had been categorised as an SSSI, destroying species in the process and when the new resident of Gwynedd said to a third party ‘isn’t someone going to say something to him then?’, they were told ‘That’s God, he does exactly what he wants’.

David Icke has for a very long time maintained that there is a network of paedophiles in politics and in the BBC. He says some other things as well which I believe are less likely to be true, but David Icke has been expressing his concerns for many years about the alleged paedophile network whom he maintains are murdering people but because David Icke is mad – well we know he is, Wogan proved that – no-one gave his concerns any media coverage.
David Icke used to be a footballer and it is now clear that there has been a substantial problem with abuse and corruption in sport, including football.

 

 

As for Adrianne’s other son, in July 2017, Tom Reveley was listed as a Gov’t Legal Department barrister who had been shortlisted for the Bar Council award of ‘Outstanding achievement by a public service barrister’. Tom works as a Legal Adviser in the ‘DoE’, which I think is the Dept of the Environment.

 

Fate struck in 1993, when two loves of her life coincided.

Adrianne is most definitely a Cosmo woman.

 

On her way to the Houses of Parliament to address a meeting

She’s a Career Woman of course

about Rethink Mental Illness, a charity to which she was devoted,

Rethink Mental Illness are yet another charidee who colluded with Dafydd and other abusive mental health professionals. Rethink Mental Illness has many of the usual suspects on board. See previous posts.

I mentioned in previous posts that in 2006 I wrote to Peter Hain in his capacity as Secretary of State for Wales about the gross abuses to which I and others had been subjected by the mental health services for many years, detailed some of the worst instances and told Mr Hain that I would campaign for a Public Inquiry into the north Wales mental health services to examine why things had gone so wrong yet no-one had ever been held to account. I CC’d my letter to a number of other people, including Paul Farmer, the CEO of Rethink Mental Illness. I received no replies from Peter Hain or anyone else and within weeks Paul Farmer had been appointed CEO of MIND, an even bigger mental health charidee than Rethink Mental Illness on an even bigger salary. MIND have colluded with Dafydd for years and now have a partnership with Dafydd’s charidee CAIS to ‘provide mental health services and therapy’ in north Wales. One MIND executive in north Wales is Robin Holden, who worked as an Angel at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, then as a manager at the Hergest Unit, in which role in 1994 and 1995 Holden refused to investigate complaints about Dafydd, including complaints that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients. See post ‘A Solicitor’s Letter From North East Wales MIND’.

When the Welsh Gov’t legal services requested a ‘second opinion’ from Adrianne with regard to me, Peter Hain was Shadow Secretary of State for Wales and the Labour Party was being led by Uncle Harry’s nephew. Uncle Harry was mates with many of Adrianne’s colleagues, including some of those whom, like Adrianne, had Harley Street practices. Uncle Harry was also a member of the Socialist Health Association, as is Brian Gibbons.

Adrianne addressed the meeting about Rethink Mental Illness in Parliament in 1993. Which was the year following the closure of the North Wales Police investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire and the conclusion that there was no evidence for such a ring. More than one hundred complaints of the abuse of kids at the Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor were made during the investigation and the CPS sent a file to the  DPP, but not one prosecution was mounted.

In 1993, Jackie Brandt, a Gwynedd social worker, made a statement to the police maintaining that I had screamed and sworn at her in Safeways in Bangor and was preparing to launch a violent attack on her. At my trial, Brandt began crying in the witness box, admitted that I hadn’t said anything to her at all but said that I had looked at her. I was found guilty of a Public Order offence and had to cough up £60.

After the case I wrote to Michael Mansfield QC and told him how Gwynedd Social Services were abusing their positions and the law. Michael Mansfield wrote me a one line reply thanking me for my letter.

It was in 1993 that Patient F was subjected to false accusations by Gwynedd Social Services, the Top Docs and Jo Bott, the former police officer who was working as the Child Protection Officer and his baby was placed with a family containing two people with a history of child abuse. See previous posts. Patient F had previously confronted social workers about the abuse of children in the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor and had made it public that he knew that George Melly had offered an underaged boy money to have sex with him when Melly went to Theatre Gwynedd for a gig.

 

[Adrienne] bumped into Terence again. This time they stuck for the rest of her life. She was a Trustee of Rethink.

When I CC’d that letter to Peter Hain to Paul Farmer, I’m sure that Adrianne would have been told about it immediately and she no doubt knew that I was the author of that letter when she met me on my visit to Harley Street years later.

Adrianne was committed to destigmatising mental illness and
worked tirelessly for this,

Along with the rest of the Top Docs who use allegations of mental illness to discredit whistleblowers, of course Adrianne was committed to destigmatising mental illness. Adrianne will have been Empowering Service Users as well. Dafydd’s been destigmatising mental illness for years now and Empowering Service Users.

 

often advising on TV programmes such as EastEnders on storylines with a mental health component.

When I had a conversation with Mark Thompson at a BBC ‘Meet The Governors’ evening in Cardiff re the portrayal of people with mental health problems on the BBC, Mark Thompson said ‘well if you want to liven up a storyline, you stick a nutter in’. He didn’t say it unpleasantly and I appreciated his honesty because that is exactly the idea. However Mark also told me that the then current East Enders storyline about a girl and her mum who both had biploar disorder was being handled more sensitively and the BBC had Taken Advice From An Expert. That expert was Adrianne then, who was concealing a trafficking ring which included Jimmy Savile. When I had that conversation with Mark Thompson, Savile was still alive and molesting and as far as the BBC were concerned They Knew Nuzzing.

 

Her list of publications, mostly letters and articles in learned, scientific journals, runs to several pages.

They will all be bollocks. Just look at what is happening to mentally ill people to judge Adrianne’s contribution.

Throughout the Nineties, she became an increasingly regular visitor to Bedales, firstly as a parent to Colin Reveley (1989-94) and Tom Reveley (1994-99). She was devoted to the school as she was to all the other loves of her life – her work, her family, her charity. In subsequent years she became a staunch supporter of the Bedales Association, regular enthusiast at reunions and ultimately a member of the Badley Society, the school’s legacy society.

I bet she was. Throughout the 1990s, there were investigations and inquiries into the organised abuse of kids and young people kicking off everywhere: North Wales, Islington, Lambeth, Staffordshire, Cheshire, Liverpool, Shropshire, south Wales… The investigations usually focused on the abuse of kids in care but the allegations were that Posh People were doing the abusing and that Posh People, including Doctors and Lawyers and Civil Servants and MPs and Peers, were covering it all up.

 

A few years ago she masterminded and inspired a video showing short interviews with various members of her Block, talking about their lives and what Bedales had done for them. If you would like to be reminded of Adrianne, you can still see it at youtube.com/watch?v=1rFbQ5N6DLQ

The video is a real laugh, someone sent it to me last night. Adrianne remembers that she was Arty and has been Arty ever since. Nice bit of publicity for Bedales there from Adrianne, just as some ex-pupils were coming forward claiming that for them Bedales wasn’t quite all that it was cracked up to be. The ex-pupils coming forward will have been in distress and may not have had glittering careers. The message from Adrianne was clear: you’re losers suckers, we’ve got the upper hand, now go away and shut up or you’ll find yourself on my ward at the Maudsley with me doing my sensitive bit with my soft voice while with every other sentence I ram it home that I’m a Top Doctor and you’re a Schizophrenic.

F gave me the names of many, many artists whom he claimed lived lives entirely around ‘champagne and cocaine’ and the names of some whom F alleged had only been given an opportunity in the art world because they had ‘offered their bums’ in return…

 

Adrianne, who had resolutely fought and ‘outgunned’ myeloma for over a year, died in her sleep at King’s College Hospital with Terence, Colin and Tom at her bedside.

Bechod! Or as F would have said ‘good riddance to bad rubbish’. At least Adrianne slipped away in her sleep in a comfy bed with pain relief, not slowly choking to death while she was hanging from a stairwell in a block of flats in Wrexham (see post ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’) or dying after a firebomb was thrown into the building where she was attending a party (see post ‘The Silence Of The Lambs’). Although I will note that Adrianne died after I began writing this blog and while the media was full of reports of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, IICSA, historical investigations into Ted Heath and many celebs. Myeloma is something with which a lot of people live for many years. Adrianne wasn’t that old and being a psychiatrist she won’t have been up to scratch with myeloma treatment. The Top Docs are such a load of bloody liars anyway that Adrianne would never have been able to be sure that she was receiving what they claimed to be giving her. The Top Docs didn’t work their magic on all those Top Docs in north Wales who could name names, loads of them are dead including Tony Francis.

Fergus Lowe died suddenly and unexpectedly in 2014 and I don’t think that he intended to.

As ye sow, so shall ye reap Fungus and Adrianne… Those who live by the Top Doctor, die by the Top Doctor.

The Institute of Psychiatry relocated from the Maudsley to King’s College some years ago.

Adrianne’s obituary was written by  Dennis Archer, a member of Bedales staff, 1974-2008.

 

The Bedales Newsletter 2018 also contains a piece written by Louki Scott (nee Healing 1960-66), remembering Adrianne.

Adrianne joined Bedales, fresh from Ireland, in September 1961 in Block 3. We were slightly in awe of this spirited girl who, she informed us, was betrothed to her childhood boyfriend who lived next door. He used to write to her every day! Though they never married they remained close friends.

Adrianne made good use of all her friends whom she loved so much.

She was initially very shy and I think that life at Steephurst came as
a bit of a shock to this only child of slightly indulgent parents.

I gained the impression that Adrianne had never done hardship or effort.

There is no doubt that she was quite the untidiest boarder ever…

A sign of Adrianne’s deep intrapsychic turmoil as she was torn between projection and transference and her unconscious desire to have sex with a little pink pussy cat, rather than being a spoilt brat who didn’t put her socks in the drawer. She’ll have been waiting for a servant to do that.

Joyce Caiger-Smith (staff 1948-70) did her best here! Ever keen and enthusiastic, Adrianne made the most of everything that Bedales had to offer.

Particularly all those influential contacts that she made while she was there and via the Bedales Society.

She not surprisingly excelled in all her subjects and gained top grades, to
enable her to return to Ireland to study medicine at Trinity College, Dublin.

Her classmates shouldn’t have been that wowed, getting into medical school was quite easy in Adrianne’s day and psychiatry was often what a Top Doc did when they had screwed up so badly that no other speciality would accept them.

She had many attributes. She could draw and sing beautifully and make her own lovely clothes.

My friend’s daughter makes fantastic clothes and she didn’t go to Bedales, she went to Ysgol Dyffryn Nantlle and she drew so beautifully that she got into Art College. Then she did a degree in anthropology at SOAS. She didn’t even collude with a gang of paedophiles in order to achieve it all!

She starred in many school drama productions, under the direction of the indomitable Rachel Cary Field. I recall her beautiful soft southern Irish accent…

Adrianne had lost that by the time that she went all sensitive on me. The disgusting Brian Gibbons and Fungus had both kissed the Blarney Stone though.

On leaving Bedales, we kept in touch. I was a bridesmaid at her first wedding and enjoyed several visits to her lovely home in Ireland. 

No hard-to-let council flat in Caernarfon or Bangor after two years in a hostel for Adrianne then. Or indeed a sleeping bag in a doorway. That was for those whom Adrianne Destigmatised and Empowered.

She introduced me to Connemara and The West

Gibbonsville

and took me to the Abbey Theatre in Dublin.

Fungus Lowe country…

 

After Adrianne returned from the USA, where she studied psychiatry, we would meet for occasional ‘catch-ups’.

Ladies who lunched.

I did my best to follow her meteoric career

Among Dafydd’s lunatic mates at the Maudsley, sectioning and drugging people whom alleged that Important People known to Adrianne had molested them.

and keep up with her family…

And Colin and Tom are at Bedales now you know, it’s SO lovely, like one big family. Tom wants to be a Human Rights lawyer but there’s no telling what Colin will do, but he’s showing quite an aptitude for pointless cruel experiments on primates! I think that he gets that from me, as well as the artiness of course.

Her untimely death came as a great shock to all her fellow Bedalians.

Well I’m not entirely surprised in view of what Adrianne had spent her entire career doing, what with all those celebs complaining that these Historical Investigations Are Going Too Far Now. I know I grabbed a few boobs but it was just a bit of fun and I never touched kids honest, that’s me, the Hairy Cornflake, over and out for the day.

 

It’s fitting that many of us enjoyed a memorable 50-year reunion at school
in September 2016. We were not to know that the dreaded myeloma would
defeat her only nine months later.

And if any of you had been Top Doctors yourselves you’d have been even more surprised because many people with the dreaded myeloma survive years after diagnosis. Unless they are patients at Ysbyty Gwynedd of course.

We have since recalled how well and lovely she looked on that day and this is how we will remember her.

Adrianne was probably nowhere near death’s door until she received Care and Help from her own colleagues.

 

For readers who won’t have time to read the Bedales Newsletter, 2018 to acquaint themselves with the extensive details of the receptions and events for the rich and well-connected and the success stories of the OBs, here are the highlights:

The OBs who are surgeons, scientists and mathematicians held a drinks do at the Royal College of Surgeons, an event designed to encourage mixing between OBs working in similar professions.

The OBs who studied at Oxford University held a reunion, as did the OBs who studied at Manchester University.

The actress Imogen Stubbs and her daughter the actress Ellie Nunn gave a talk on how Bedales had helped them.

An OB who was a founding member of the SAS gave a talk.

The Newsletter also featured:

OB John Ridding, the CEO of the FT Group; OB Joanna Hardy, the BBC Antiques Roadshow jewellery specialist; OB Viv Peto, a former health researcher from Oxford University; OB Jem Ambache, a retired social worker who is a Labour Councillor for Wandsworth; Judith Barber, an OB who worked for the Foreign Office, including the N Ireland Office, for 30 years; OB Tim Hutchinson who works in the film industry; OB Jane Hyland, who was a cellist in the National Orchestra for Wales and the BBC Symphony Orchestra; OB Deirdre Parrinder, who is an acupuncturist working in a GP’s surgery with torture and trafficking victims – no doubt a friend of Adrianne’s; OB Robin Walesby, a retired cardio-thoracic surgeon at the Royal Free Hospital and UCL and his wife Romayne, a retired anaesthetist, who now spend their time between London, Sydney and Trinidad.

The Newsletter introduced the new Head of Bedales, Magnus Basharat, who previously taught at Eton.

The Newsletter profiled a few OBs: Matthew Batstone, the Co-founder and Director of the New College of the Humanities, an institution for very rich people who haven’t got into Oxbridge; Clare McCaldin who has been involved in something arty called ‘Notes from the Asylum’, not that she’ll be one of Adrianne’s or Michael’s patients, they won’t be up and about doing Arty things.

As well as Adrianne, a few other OBs pegged out recently and the Newsletter has obituaries for: Thomas Cassirer, the former Prof at the University of Massachusetts; Ralph Wedgwood, the former Prof of the Paeds Dept, University of Washington; Robin Murray, the Chief Economic Adviser to the GLC, 1981-86.

The Newsletter also published an obit for Prof Dame Margaret Turner Warwick, who wasn’t an OB but they’ve let her slip through the Posh and Arty With It filter because she was their Chairman of Governors. The old Dame was a Top Doctor who worked at UCL, the Royal Brompton and then what became part of Imperial College, where she was Prof of Medicine. The Dame was the First Woman President of the Royal College of Physicians, 1989-92, when she concealed the appalling criminality of Dafydd et al, the gang in Leicester, St George’s Hospital Medical School, Hammersmith Hospital and colluded with Lord Brian Flowers, that famous son of Swansea who ended up reigning supreme over London University and Manchester University. See previous posts. When the Dame was happy that the whole lot of them were off the hook, in 1992 she became Chairman of the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital Trust, where she remained until 1995. As various dodgy Top Docs who had been part of the gang in London retired to Devon and Cornwall… In retirement, the Dame took a keen interest in young people’s mental health, carers, older people and arts for social change. It was great to know that you were thinking of the likes of me Dame Margaret, I don’t know how I would have managed without you.

 

OBs are represented very well among household names: Gyles Brandreth; Kirstie Allsopp; Sophie Dahl; Daniel Day-Lewis; Cara and Poppy Delevingne; Minnie Driver; Frieda Hughes; Mary Ann Sieghart; Ceawlin Thynn, Viscount Weymouth; Arabella Weir; Sir Peter Wright, Director, Sadler’s Wells Royal Ballet, 1977–1990, and Director, Birmingham Royal Ballet, 1990–1999; Lily Allen.

The Revenge of History (book).jpg

O Jones, O Jones

‘O. Jones, O. Jones’ is the title of a 1970 novel by the Welsh Top Doctor and poet Dannie Abse. Among Abse’s many other works was the 1990 collection of poems, ‘Remembrance of Crimes Past: Poems 1986-1989’.  Dannie Abse achieved much greater fame as a poet than he did as a Top Doctor, although he worked as a Top Doctor in a chest clinic for much of his life. Dannie was  the younger brother of Leo Abse, the Labour MP for Pontypool and then Torfaen, 1958-87 and the psychiatrist Wilfred Abse, who emigrated to the US when still quite a young man.

Leo Abse has already featured a great deal on this blog. The Abses were a Jewish family from Cardiff and a great many of the extended family were Top Doctors and lawyers; Leo’s own father Rudolf was a solicitor who owned and managed a small cinema in a slum area of Newport. Leo Abse was a bent lawyer who was a very, very unpleasant man. He was bright and had a lot of energy but he was the George Carman of south Wales in that people feared him and did not tangle with him. Leo Abse was a close friend of George Thomas and boasted of his success in ‘persuading’ people to drop complaints about Thomas’s sex offending by either paying them off – in one case Abse paid a witness to begin a new life in Australia – or threatening to stitch them up and have them imprisoned. Abse also ensured that bad PR re George Thomas did not hit the media. When in 1984 George Thomas was hospitalised with an STI and in despair because he feared that he was about to be exposed, he summoned Abse to the hospital in the middle of the night and Abse arranged for the press to be told that Thomas had ‘waterworks’ trouble. I don’t know which hospital was caring for Thomas, but the Top Docs colluded with Abse’s media management; the whole of the NHS  in Wales were colluding with George Thomas anyway, it was why there was such a cosy relationship between the Top Docs and George Thomas which manifested itself in Thomas’s medical charidee work. See previous posts eg. ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’ and ‘The Great Stink’ for further details of George Thomas and the scale on which Top Docs and others rearranged the furniture in order to ensure that Thomas’s offending, even his rape of a 10 year old boy, never led to charges or even became public.

George Thomas was known to frequent small backstreet independent cinemas for sexual liaisons with young men and boys, whether they were consenting or not.

It was in 1984 that Dr D.G.E. Wood began overtly threatening Brown and me to withdraw our complaint about Gwynne the lobotomist. Gwynne, Dafydd, Wood et al were part of George Thomas’s network, as was Professor William Assher, the Top Doc from Cardiff who, after Professor Oliver Brooke of St George’s Hospital Medical School was jailed for the possession of child porn in Dec 1986, was called upon by the big boys in London to take over as Dean and then Principal of St George’s. Ollie was a key figure in the pan-European paedophile ring which that lot were part of and the distress flares were going up everywhere. The Dean of St George’s in post when Ollie was convicted was deposed and the public were reassured that Ollie was one lone sad git and The Matter Had Been Dealt With. Ollie’s mates were all still at St George’s running the gang and Asscher, Mr Big in south Wales, was recruited to ensure that the gang was able to carry on business as usual in south London.

In April 1986 the gang killed my house-mate Anne.

In 1986 Cherie Booth was working as a barrister in George Carman’s Chambers. Her husband Miranda, a former pupil of Carman’s, had been elected as the Labour MP for Sedgefield in June 1983, when Mary Wynch was getting ever closer to the Master of the Rolls with her legal case against Dafydd and the gang. Sedgefield was a constituency in Durham, which was the location of a trafficking ring in the north east of England with links to Dafydd’s gang and who supplied Dafydd’s gang with staff and children.

It was in 1983 that Dafydd’s mate and umbrella Professor Robert Bluglass wrote the new Mental Health Act to reassure everyone that after Mary Wynch’s case, It Could Never Happen Again. So when I complained about Dafydd doing it all over again in 1986-87, despite Bluglass’s brand new Mental Health Act, it was Bluglass whom the Medical Ombudsman for the Welsh Office – Professor Robert Owen, another mate of Dafydd’s – asked to investigate my complaint. Bluglass failed to investigate most aspects of my complaint and er concealed Dafydd’s criminality. See post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’.

 

Leo Abse knew Greville Janner, the Cardiff-born barrister and Labour MP for Leicester North West and then Leicester West, 1970-97, who was involved with the paedophile gang in the Leicester area, which had links with Dafydd’s gang and was being concealed by the Top Docs as well as many others. Greville’s dad Barnett Janner had preceded Greville as the MP for the constituency. Barnett was a Jewish lawyer who was originally from south Wales and knew the Abse family. See previous posts.

After Brown and I refused to succumb to the threats of the Top Docs, from 1984 onwards a great deal of conspiring behind the scenes went on to nobble our career progress. Professor Stuart Hall and his chums ensured that Brown ended up doing his PhD with the Centre for Mass Communication Research at Leicester University rather than with Hall’s old mates at the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies, Birmingham University. Thus Brown ended up on the manor of Greville which led to much obstruction and many adventures. See post ‘Life In Cold Blood’. I went to live with Brown in Leicester after I finished my MSc at Hammersmith Hospital/Royal Postgraduate Medical School in May 1987. Unbeknown to Brown and me, the Top Doctors at Hammersmith were of course part of the net, so I when I was at Hammersmith, I was offered what seemed at the time a good number with the Cancer Research Campaign at Nottingham University. However the labs were run by Professor Robert Baldwin, whom was known by all senior figures in cancer research to be mistreating staff and running a research fraud racket with an American drug company. See post ‘Oh Lordy, It’s CR UK!’. Because I had been offered the job at Nottingham, I moved into Brown’s house in Leicester, where we were placed under surveillance by MI5 and were targeted by those we know and love…

Just after the General Election of 1987, Dafydd et al had me arrested and charged when they invited me to north Wales on the pretext of discussing my complaint with me. They not only refused to discuss my complaint, they also made statements to the police alleging that I had tried to stab a junior doctor. The case fell apart because Jeff Crowther, a nursing officer from Ysbyty Gwynedd and Sgt Morgan at Bangor Police Station, didn’t tell as many lies as they were required to tell, so I was charged with a public order offence instead – under the legislation introduced by Thatch to criminalise striking miners, one could be prosecuted for pretty much anything – and my solicitor Alwyn Jones commissioned a Court report from Dr James Earp in Leicester (see post ‘An Expert From England’). Who was concealing the crimes of Greville et al and colluded with Dafydd and the gang in north Wales.. Alwyn I have now been told was Of The Gwerin, but he would have been deeply compromised anyway because his wife was employed as a lawyer with Gwynedd County Council. See previous posts.

 

Leo Abse attended Howard Garden’s High School in Cardiff and then the LSE where he studied law, in the late 1930s or early 1940s. Having joined the Labour Party in 1934, Leo clandestinely visited Spain during the closing months of the Spanish Civil War in 1939.

During WW II Leo Abse served in the RAF. He was in Cairo in 1944 when some of the British military personnel stationed there set up a “Forces Parliament” in which they debated the structure of society that they wanted to see in the post-war world. Abse’s left-wing views were fully in tune with the majority opinion among the lower ranks at its meetings, but the existence of the “Parliament” disturbed the senior officers. When Abse moved a motion supporting nationalization of the Bank of England he was arrested and the Forces Parliament was forcibly dissolved.

After the end of the war Abse set up in practice as a solicitor in Cardiff. In 1951 he established his own law firm, Leo Abse & Cohen, which eventually grew to be the biggest in the city. Leo Abse was also elected as Chairman of Cardiff Labour Party for two years from 1951, relinquishing the post when he was elected to Cardiff City Council. Cardiff City Council was riddled with corruption of which George Thomas and the Top Doctors were a part and this remained a serious problem years later, when the tentacles of corruption permeated the National Assembly for Wales. See eg. posts ‘More Than Politics And Local Government’, ‘The Battle Of The Cowshed’ and ‘Criminals Are Getting Away With It’.

Leo Abse and his mates networked among the Jewish community, among the Top Doctors and of course among the legal profession, no matter what their politics. Leo Abse knew Tory barrister Michael Howard, who was Home Secretary, 1993-97. Howard was born Michael Hecht in Gorseinion, Swansea and was the son of Bernat Hecht, who was born in Romania and came to Britain in 1939. Howard’s mother, Hilda (Kershion), lived in Wales from the age of 6 months. Both of Howard’s parents were from Jewish families. It was Michael Howard who as Home Secretary finally ruined Mary Wynch, although Mary had by then won every part of her legal case (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’). In 1975 Michael Howard married the former ‘model’ Sandra Paul who had previously been at the centre of the celebs who were sexually exploiting the kids and young people provided by Dafydd’s gang. Sandra’s first husband was the jazz pianist Robin Douglas-Home, the nephew of former PM Alec Douglas-Home. At the time of his divorce from Sandra, Robin was having a relationship with Lilibet’s sister, Ma’am Darling. Robin later killed himself after suffering from serious depression.

‘Now don’t you worry my dear, we’ll look after you. Unless you are in a position to name names of course. Past bedfellow of Ma’am Darling you say? Ooh how glamorous! Er, do you know I think that there’s a bit of a waiting list for Care at the moment. You’ll be OK though, I can see that…’ ‘Next patient please…’

The Lord Howard of Lympne
Official portrait of Lord Howard of Lympne crop 2.jpg

Prison works! But not for bent lawyers and Top Doctors running sex abuse gangs obviously, that is why Dafydd et al were never charged, convicted and jailed, although anyone who found themselves making complaints about them was arrested or found dead having ‘committed suicide’. I was repeatedly arrested and charged when Michael Howard was Home Secretary. Those members of Dafydd’s gang who made allegations against me were demonstrated to have perjured themselves but no action was ever taken against any of them, although throughout it all there were various investigations and inquiries underway with regard to a possible ‘VIP paedophile ring’ operating in north Wales/Cheshire.

Mr Howard – can I have my compensation cheque please? Unlike the Bryn Estyn boys who made those scurrilous allegations about those who tried so hard to help them, I am not a ‘drug addict’ and I have never been in prison. I have 10,000 documents demonstrating perjury and conspiracy on the part of the NHS, the police force, the CPS, the judiciary, the criminal justice system, the social services and other people. You owe me a great deal of money Howard, even in terms of the paltry offers made to those who have been the victims of state abuse, believe me, you owe me millions… Cough up you worthless corrupt bastard and when you do, remember all of those who died at the hands of a criminal gang whom you actively assisted. Furthermore tell your ageing dipstick of a wife, the former ‘model’ who tried to resurrect her career in the 1990s by promoting sad clothes for M&S – who have enjoyed a very cosy relationship with the Top Doctors who facilitated Dafydd and the gang –  to make a statement about all those young people who were forced to provide sexual services to predatory celebs and aristos by Dafydd et al.

  • But Sandra’s so glamorous!
  • ‘Ewe know Dr DA tried to help them, ooh he tried ewe know, so many people tried, but…’

    See previous posts for further details of the vile Lord and Lady Howard and the very comfortable lives that they led while the bodies of the gang’s victims littered north Wales. Do they know anything about the deaths of Bing Spear, the corrupt Home Office mandarin who was in cahoots with Dafydd and Sir Peter Morrison, just four days apart in July 1995? See previous posts…

Leo Abse entered the Commons after winning a by-election in 1958, as a result of the then Labour MP for Pontypool, Granville West – who like Abse was a solicitor – being awarded one of the first life peerages in 1958, when Clement Attlee was PM. Unusually for a town in the South Wales valleys at that time, the NUM was not in control of the nomination of West’s successor as Labour candidate, since Pontypool was a centre of the railway industry. Abse won the candidature and then won the seat.

Daniel Granville West, Baron Granville-West established a successful solicitors’ practice, guided by Welsh Baptist principles and became a leading socialist after WW II. Baptised at the Tabernacle English Baptist Church, Monmouthshire, West remained a dedicated member all his life. Prominent in the Labour Party in opposition during the Gaitskell period in the 1950s and early 1960s, he remained ‘committed to law and order in Wales’ – like a friend of Silvio Berlusconi’s who was Tough On Crime And Tough On The Causes Of Crime! – and the nationalisation of the rail industry. Granville was horrified by the legacy of Imperial decline which he blamed for growing unemployment in the valleys.

Granville West was educated at Newbridge Grammar School and studied law at the University College of Wales, which became Cardiff University. Early in his years as a solicitor, West worked in a successful practice in Newbridge and Pontypool, Chivers and Morgan Solicitors and this acted as a financial and legal springboard for his political career. A strong Baptist tradition continued to have a significant presence in the Liberal and Labour parties during the early part of the 20th century. Granville West was an advocate of Nonconformist education as a Sunday School superintendent and in his practice he was the solicitor to Monmouthshire Welsh Baptist Association. West gained political experience between the wars on Aberdarn Urban District Council, 1934-38 and when WW II broke out, Granville West was already a prominent local personage, serving as a Councillor on Monmouthshire County Council, 1939-47. During WW II, West served in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, being promoted to Flight Lieutenant.

After the war ended Granville was demobilised and returned to the legal profession. He was rejoined by partner Emrys Morgan, forming the firm Granville West and Morgan. Encouraged by the Attlee Gov’t to seek a seat in Parliament, West alighted on Pontypool because his solicitors’ practice had taken over Harold Saunders’ practice in 1943, providing a unique opportunity in a safe Labour area.

West was elected as MP for Pontypool in a by-election in July 1946. He was appointed PPS to James Chuter Ede, then Home Secretary under Attlee, in 1950, but the next year Labour lost the General Election.

James Chuter Ede was a school teacher who was active with the NUT after WW II. George Thomas was also a school teacher who was active in the NUT after WW II. James Schuter Ede was the Labour MP for South Shields, 1935-64, on the territory of the ring in the north east of England who by the early 1970s were supplying Dafydd’s gang with staff, including Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth and children.

In 1965, Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth met at Ruskin College; Arnold was a part-time tutor and Howarth a student. Prezza, who ended up as Miranda’s Deputy PM, was a Ruskin student at the same time. See post ‘A Study In Tyranny’. By 1966 Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth were both working at the Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead. Children were abused at Axwell Park. In May 1973 Matt Arnold was appointed Head of Bryn Estyn. Peter Howarth was appointed to the staff of Bryn Estyn in Nov 1973. On 9 June 1994 Matt Arnold died of an ‘unspecified blood disease’. Howarth’s trial for sexually abusing boys in care in north Wales opened at Chester Crown Court on 13 June 1994 and on 8 July 1994 Howarth was found guilty and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. His co-defendant Paul Wilson was cleared on all charges.

The glamorous Sandra’s husband Michael Howard was Home Secretary at the time.

Miranda became Leader of the Labour Party on July 21 1994, the previous Leader John Smith having died at Bart’s on 12 May 1994, after Dafydd’s colleagues there ‘failed to revive’ Smith after a heart attack. Prezza, the former Ruskin student who had been the MP for Hull East since 1970 after gaining a degree at Hull University in 1968 and who originally came from Denbighshire in north Wales, was appointed Deputy Leader of the Labour Party on July 21 1994. A trafficking gang linked with Dafydd et al operated in Yorkshire and the gang had many links with Hull University. As any fule kno, Miranda only appointed Prezza, an Old Labour stalwart, as Deputy PM to placate the old school in the Labour Party. Or at least that was the official explanation for this ignoramus who couldn’t string a coherent sentence together being at the top of Gov’t.

Strange but true for March

No doubt a lot of people were a little surprised when the Fool On The Hull was selected as a Labour Party candidate in the first place, but they’ll need to ask Harold Wilson why that was. The Harold Wilson who was a big pal of Leo Abse’s mate George Thomas.

The Lord Prescott
John Prescott on his last day as Deputy Prime Minister, June 2007.jpg

After that business of Tracy Temple and then the autobiography in which Prezza discussed his eating disorder, it was assumed that his days as anything other than a light entertainment star were over. So imagine my surprise when on 21 Feb 2015 Prezza was appointed as SPAD to Uncle Harry’s nephew, who was at the time the Leader of the Labour Party.

Strange but true for March

Uncle Harry’s nephew’s dad Ralph had been a leading light in the New Left, along with many of those who taught at Ruskin; during the 1940s Ralph had studied at the LSE and he subsequently taught there, alongside so many others who later concealed Dafydd’s crimes and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. In 1972 Ralph was appointed Professor of Politics at the University of Leeds. I was told yesterday that Ralph was one of those leftist academics who assisted Stuart Hall et al in obstructing Brown’s career. See previous posts for more info about Ralph.

Numerous people at Leeds University were concealing Jimmy Savile and the gang in Yorkshire. Jimmy Savile was a visitor to Bryn Estyn. One boy alleged that Savile watched him gang raped. Uncle Harry was a Top Doctor at Guy’s who worked with many of those keeping schtum about Dafydd et al.

James Chuter Ede was closely involved in the drafting of the Butler Education Act and the Criminal Justice Act 1948 and he established the Lynskey Tribunal in 1948 to investigate allegation of corruption among Ministers and civil servants. In 1964 James Chuter Ede left the Commons and was created a life peer as Baron Chuter-Ede, of Epsom in the County of Surrey. Just as the Scourge of Corruption In High Places bagged his peerage, this man was given a job as a consultant psychiatrist at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and was given responsibility for the women’s wing of the institution which at the time had hundreds and hundreds of female patients:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

‘Ewe know he tried so hard to help them but they did keep smoking mari-jew-ana and it wasn’t good for them…’

Dafydd’s boss at Denbigh was Gwynne the lobotomist, who continued carrying out lobotomies on patients long after most other institutions had ceased the practice and after the general public were told that lobotomies were no longer being carried out on patients at Denbigh. Most of those lobotomised at Denbigh were women. Of the medical records from Denbigh that are available, it is clear that the decision to carry out a lobotomy was based on the patient’s behaviour as documented by the records made by Angels. My own records from Denbigh, some of which were compiled by Angels who were employed there as long ago as the 1960s, repeatedly documented that my ‘behaviour’ was a problem, that I was ‘paranoid and aggressive’ and ‘hostile’ to Dafydd. No-one recorded that Dafydd turned up to see me at gone midnight when I was in bed. One Angel did make extensive notes expressing her concern that I had been unlawfully arrested and imprisoned by Dafydd after a ‘deal’ that he had struck with Superintendent Roberts at Bangor Police Station and that she did not want to be part of this. The Angel noted that she was told by Dr Neil Davies that she hadn’t broken the law, he and Dafydd had, all she had to do was to refuse to let me out. That Angel’s notes were ignored by everyone who ‘investigated’ my complaint and I only found out about them myself about five years ago. The Angel is now dead, she died in early middle-age, suddenly and unexpectedly in the care of Ysbyty Glan Clwyd in 2002, just after Dafydd and the gang were trying to have me imprisoned for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’ on the basis of the perjury of some eight NHS staff. The case later collapsed; there was no investigation into the extensive perjury.

Before working in north Wales, Dr Neil Davies had previously worked in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. When I later asked why Dafydd had ever been appointed as my Top Doctor – because I had stated quite clearly that I wanted nothing to do with him – I was told that Tony Francis had ‘referred’ me to him. I was referred to Francis after I made a complaint about Gwynne the lobotomist. Many years later I found that Francis had documented to third parties that I was ‘dangerous’ and ‘very disturbed’ because of the ‘allegations’ that I had made about Gwynne Williams, ‘a deceased doctor’. My allegations were that Gwynne had propositioned me and I made the allegations when he was still alive. Everyone whom I approached, including the GMC, flatly refused to investigate my complaint about Williams, even the part re Williams lying and then rewriting medical records. The Chair of the GMC at the time was Lord John Walton, a psychiatrist and neurologist from Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Tony Francis, Neil Davies and Dafydd all worked in north Wales, at the North Wales Hospital. In the 1980s, if a patient requested a second opinion, they were referred to Dafydd, Tony Francis or Neil Davies.

They were running a sex trafficking gang and all of their colleagues knew it, as did those at the top of the GMC and the BMA.

I am waiting for an explanation British state. You had a great deal to say about Brown and me previously, I am waiting for your comments now. Twelve year old boys gang raped, children filmed while they were forced to have sex with animals…

WELL???

As for ‘ooh there’s a Lady Doctor available now’, the Wimmin were fully on board with this as well, the Lady Doctors, the Angels, the social workers, the housemothers at Bryn Estyn, the Wimmin’s Champs in the Labour Party, except of course for that Angel who objected to Dafydd’s Deal, who was ignored and later died at the hands of her colleagues.

WELL??

‘Ewe know, some of my colleagues would rrrap me on the knuckles for saying this, but if ewe drop that complaint about me, I would only have to have a word with my friend at Liverpool Medical School and I am sure that ewe would be offered a place.’

There were many quips made at the time by my friends and I that Dafydd’s colleagues wouldn’t have rapped him on the knuckles, they’d have had him struck off, but O Jones how naive we were! MI5 listened in to that call in 1987, they knew what Dafydd was doing as indeed did all those colleagues whom Dafydd thought might rap him on the knuckles and Dafydd is still on the Medical Register today. Years later when we began to realise some of what Dafydd was involved with, Patient F used to enjoy himself with suggestions that some of Dafydd’s colleagues would slap him on the buttocks… the bare buttocks…when Dafydd was wearing his baby doll nightie…

MI5 listened to that as well.

The Night of the Hunter

Er – anyone out there still listening in want to comment??? You haven’t done that brilliantly really have you M or C or X or Dame Stella Rimington or whatever you call yourself at the moment? Try TF – for TOTAL FUCKWIT. I don’t care how many of them there were TF, Brown and I could have done better than you lot, in fact we did, we told many people what we thought was going on and everything that we suspected turned out to have been correct. Although we didn’t know about the little boys and the involvement of Carlo, obviously. MI5 need to hurry up with that statement of theirs that they are very sorry…they’ve failed…they are on a journey because they are a learning organisation…

Next time MI5, instead of surrounding me with dipsticks in various disguises to waste my time and energy, please send someone compos mentis in possession of all that money that you owe Brown and me. And I’ll still never forgive you.

Dafydd will be no doubt be settling down with his original of ‘Octopussy’ and a slice of Bara Brith as I write. I’ll be starring in a new Bond film myself soon, ‘From Llangefni with Love…’

 

Glanville West was President of the South Wales and Monmouthshire branch of the Probation Officers Association. It was common knowledge in north Wales in the 1980s and 90s that the Probation Service were on board with Dafydd’s gang, but the Waterhouse Report details the backgrounds of some of the Ancients who were involved with Gwynedd and Social Services while the gang did whatever the pleased and some of the Ancients had worked with the Probation Service decades previously. The career of Geoffrey Parkinson in the Probation Service in Inner London (see post ‘Only One Died’) suggests that there was a substantial problem with corruption in the Probation Service as long ago as the 1950s.

Glanville West also served as Chairman of the Advisory Council on Civil Aviation in Wales. During the Suez Crisis he was strongly in favour of supporting Israel’s stance against Egypt proposed by the Eden Gov’t. In the House, Glanville West persistently asked questions about employment, the levels of unemployment, the jobless statistics and how the valleys might benefit from Development areas. He sought compensation for miners, their tenancies and National Assistance for pensioners.

On 12 January 1937 Glanville West married Vera, daughter of J.Hopkins of Pontypool. They lived in Abersychan, Pontypool and had a son and a daughter.

In 1958 West was one of the first three Labour nominees chosen by Hugh Gaitskell to be created a life peer. Lord Granville-West’s maiden speech on 26 November 1958 tackled the issue of the Welsh language in schools. He was a strongly committed Welshman, passionate about ‘Welshness’ and the rights of countrymen.

As was Dafydd, while he was procuring children to provide sexual services for English High Tories.

  • Christine Keeler was one of many protagonists in Cliveden ...

An advocate of industrial expansion in the South Wales valleys, Glanville-West opposed decline, promoting the cause of railway maintenance to the British Transport Commission. He hoped to attract new industries in the ‘white heat of technology’, having opposed the Beeching cuts. During 1970s industrial decline was accompanied by a shortage of decent housing. Lord Granville-West evolved into a moderniser supporting the enfranchisement of leaseholders to allow more working-class people to aspire to own their own home. Now who made that one of their flagship policies decades later?

The high profile Baptist Baron Granville-West died in Pontypool aged 80, in Sept 1984. In 1971 Dafydd made a speech to the Annual Meeting of the Welsh Baptists’ Union in which he told them that learning Bible verses in Welsh as a child can protect against a serious moral collapse in later life. See post ‘A Serious Moral Collapse’. Penrallt Baptist Church in Bangor was and still is a hot spot for Bangor University staff, Top Doctors and social workers. See previous posts. I know some very nice people who attend Penrallt but in the 1980s there were a great many people in that Church who were working and colluding with Dafydd and the gang and they undoubtedly knew how serious the criminality was.

Here’s an extract from the website of Glanville-West, Chivers and Morgan:

The firm was founded by Harold Saunders in 1904. In 1924, D. Granville West joined this practice to serve his articles. By 1929, D. Granville West had set up a practice on his own account in Newbridge. In 1943 he then took over Harold Saunders’ existing practice in Pontypool. Immediately after the War, Emrys Chivers returned to the firm from serving in the R.A.F., as a partner. We then became known as D. Granville West & Chivers.

Around 1950, D. Francis Dunford joined the practice, forming D. Granville West, Chivers & Dunford. The latter left the firm in 1962 to become a judge and in 1966, Ronald E.Y. (Ron) Morgan returned to the practice as a partner, having trained with us in the 1950s. The practice then gained the name by which it is known today – Granville-West, Chivers & Morgan. The hyphen in Granville-West was added when D. Granville West, who had been the Member of Parliament for Pontypool, became one of the first Life Peers, Baron Granville-West of Pontypool.

The Risca Office was established in 1980, with the Abertillery Office following in 1987. In the same year, Ron Morgan retired from the practice, but continued to practise separately as Chivers & Morgan until his death in 1998.

So Glanville-West’s pal Ron was around until after the Waterhouse Inquiry had heard evidence from the lying criminals of the children’s homes of north Wales to uphold the reputation of a network of old paedophiles who’s mycelia had penetrated all parts of polite society in the UK as well as much of polite society in other parts of the world.

Granville-West, Chivers & Morgan has taken over the practice of G. Edward Williams & Son in Blackwood to further enhance its presence in the Gwent Valleys. Granville-West, Chivers & Morgan has a proud tradition of service to the community. We act free of charge or at greatly reduced rates for a number of charities, churches and other institutions.

So that’s the potted history of Sue, Grabbit and Runn of south Wales.

Leo Abse is remembered for his natty dress sense and of course for the leading role that he played in the decriminalisation of homosexuality. In 1957, the Wolfenden Report had recommended that the law be changed to decriminalise consenting male gay sex, but the Gov’t had taken no action. Abse began to promote a Bill to put Wolfenden’s recommendations into law in February 1962. He kept pressing the issue and, after Humphrey Berkeley, the Tory MP for Lancaster, lost his seat in 1966, Abse became the main sponsor for the legalisation.

Humphrey Berkeley’s father, Reginald was the Liberal MP for Nottingham Central, 1922-24 and a noted playwright. Humphry Berkeley attended Malvern College followed by Pembroke College and was President of both the Cambridge Union Society and Cambridge University Conservative Association in 1948. His studies were interrupted when he was excluded for two years as a result of a practical joke in which he impersonated ‘H. Rochester Sneath’, the Headmaster of a rather odd public school, and wrote hoax letters to public figures. Berkeley knew Rab Butler, who arranged a job for him at Conservative Central Office during this time; Butler also advised Humphrey to keep the hoax letters and their replies safely, and publish them a quarter of a century later (the ‘Rochester Sneath letters’ were duly published in 1974).

Berkeley established his own PR company and became Head of Publicity and PR for a group of civil engineering companies. As a strong supporter of European union, Berkeley was Director-General of the United Kingdom Council of the European Movement, 1956-1957. In 1959, he was elected as the Tory MP for Lancaster.

Berkeley was a strong internationalist who supported the work of the UN; his father had supported the League of Nations. He served on the Parliamentary Assembly of the Western European Union and the Council of Europe from 1963. Berkeley was a member of the Howard League for Penal Reform and from 1965 the honorary Treasurer. That year he also drew up the new rules for election of the Leader of the Conservative Party. They might have been the rules under which Ted Heath was elected Leader in July 1965…

In 1965, Berkeley introduced a Bill to legalise male homosexual relations along the lines of the Wolfenden Report. According to a 2007 article published in ‘The Observer’, Berkeley was well known to his colleagues as a homosexual and not much liked. His Bill was given a second reading on 11 February 1966, but fell when Parliament was dissolved soon after. Unexpectedly, Berkeley lost his seat in 1966 and ascribed his defeat to the unpopularity of his Bill on homosexuality.

Out of Parliament, Berkeley took a job as Chairman of the UNA (United Nations Association). In this capacity he employed Jeffrey Archer to organise the UNA’s flag day collection. Despite barely increasing the previous year’s total, Archer was promoted to organise a dinner at 10 Downing Street, which raised over £200,000. Berkeley would later accuse Archer of having made false expenses claims whilst he worked for the UNA.

The former Deputy Principal of Bangor Normal College was an enthusiastic member of the UNA and was also involved in penal reform. Her family were leading Liberals in Wales and she personally knew Lady Megan Lloyd George. Just after I finished my PhD, this lady and her colleagues in the UNA organised a discussion day on the Dangers Of Drugs. The keynote speaker was Dafydd. Dafydd was scheduled to speak in one of the lecture theatres at Bangor University and I raised my concerns with the University authorities about the presence of Dafydd on the premises because of the misrepresentation of Dafydd’s position and experience on the UNA promotional material. The event was eventually cancelled by the UNA, but not before I received an e mail from a man called Tegai, who was a member of the UNA branch, which contained information about me which was not known to anyone in Bangor University and could only have come from Dafydd. It wasn’t anything horrifically sensitive which was why Tegai will have made the mistake; he had no idea that I would have known that the info could only have come from one person…

I am sure that dear old Dafydd told Tegai and co many more Interesting Facts about me which Tegai didn’t mention…

I’ve been told that the business of Dafydd’s proposed guest appearance under the umbrella of the UNA  on that occasion was a team effort on the part of the gwerin. There’s a post coming soon in which you’ll all be named! Please don’t panic gwerin, I’m not Of You so I won’t be blogging the info that I was given about you under conditions of confidentiality, even if you used confidential information about me. Or indeed simply made up a pack of lies. Are you enjoying your coating of green slime? At least people will be able to see you coming in future, it’s certainly never going to wash off. As for that comment re what you were all going to do to the VC of Bangor University Merfyn Jones once his wife had died… How Lowe can you get? Well-dressed men? You haven’t got a clue, you might as well have all taken a leaf out of the book of Dr Duckula Morris and dressed in nylon slacks. You probably all agree with her that ‘Althusser is just a load of old rubbish really’.

In 1968 Humphrey had resigned from the Conservative Party, largely in opposition to its stance on Vietnam. In 1970, Humphrey joined the Labour Party and stood unsuccessfully as a Labour candidate in 1974. He then spent time working as a roving ambassador of the now defunct Republic of Transkei, until he was abducted one night in February 1979 while dining at the Umtata Holiday Inn, and assaulted on the side of a road, put into the boot of a car and dumped over the border at Kei Bridge.

Humphrey Berkeley found his true home in 1981 when he joined Dr Death in the SDP. He fought Southend East for them in 1987. In 1988 with the SDP splitting over whether to merge with the Liberals, Humphrey rejoined Labour.

 

Although with the Labour landslide of 1966 there was a majority for Leo Abse’s Bill to decriminalise homosexuality, it was still vulnerable but Abse persuaded Woy Jenkins to give the measure Gov’t time, which eventually saw the Bill through onto the statute book. Abse knew that Woy was a bisexual swinger who was colluding with Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring and may have been part of it himself.

In 1968 Abse was appointed to a Home Office Advisory Committee on the penal system. He was elected Chairman of the group of Welsh Labour MPs in 1971. Abse was chosen as Chairman of a Select Committee on abortion, 1975-77. His report advocated restrictions on abortion, including a lowering of the time limit within which abortion was legal from 28 weeks. Abse fought in the House of Commons for the enactment of his Committee’s recommendations and continued the fight in 1980 when the Conservative MP John Corrie proposed a Bill along similar lines; Abse refused to compromise on a limit of 24 weeks.

Abse was one of the ‘Gang Of Six’ group of Welsh Labour MPs who were opponents of devolution when it was proposed in the late 1970s. Another member of the group was the Windbag. There was a great deal of enmity between these MPs and the pro-devolution MPs. See post ‘News From Sicily’. One of the reasons why Abse opposed devolution was that he thought that some in Wales, whom he called “fanatics”, wanted to use it to promote the use of the Welsh language. George Thomas also had a major problem with anyone who dared speak Welsh. Although their mate Dafydd is first language Welsh and his minion Meri Huws was Chair of Cymdeithas, then Chair of the Welsh Language Board and is now the Welsh Language Commissioner.

# No fucking principles at all. Just a gang of paedophiles.

Abse was briefly Chairman of the Welsh Affairs Select Committee when it was first set up, but resigned in November 1981. Abse added to his reputation for taking maverick stances by strongly urging that British forces be withdrawn from N Ireland. He opposed nuclear power and weapons and criticised Thatch for insisting that Argentina unconditionally surrender over the Falklands. Abse supported British membership of the European Communities. His support for liberal divorce laws led him to propose a new ‘child-centred’ divorce reform in the early 1980s; the Bill was piloted by Martin Stevens, Conservative MP for Fulham.

What has received rather less publicity than the noble hero Leo Abse fighting for gay rights and divorce law reform is Abse virtual single-handedly achieving the Children Act 1975, which resulted in hundreds of kids in care being placed in children’s homes in north Wales. Abse began preparing the ground for the Children’s Act in the late 1960s, just as John Allen took out the lease on the building which became the Bryn Alyn Community. Abse wined and dined with Jim Callaghan, the then Home Secretary and Callaghan’s wife Audrey, who were both colluding with organised child abuse, including that carried out by Abse’s pal George Thomas. It was as a result of Abse’s efforts that the Houghton Committee was set up to ‘review’ matters re kids who were not cared for by their families. The Houghton Committee took evidence from Dafydd’s friends and colleagues and on the basis of this recommended a change in the law re kids in care. Because Labour were out of office between 1970 and 1974, Abse was delayed a little with regard to successfully changing the law, but once Labour was elected in 1974, Dr Death very kindly sponsored a Private Member’s Bill at old Abse’s request and the Children Act 1975 came into being. See post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’ for further details.

The kids who were placed in the hands of a gang of paedophiles as a result of the Children Act 1975 were dependent upon the Welsh Office to ensure that standards and care in the children’s homes were acceptable. The Waterhouse Report admits that there was a total dereliction of duty on the part of the Welsh Office with regard to this; the Welsh Office failed to regularly inspect most of the children’s homes in north Wales, even when staff were convicted of assaults on children and the most serious complaints were made. The Welsh Office became responsible for the health and social services in Wales when George Thomas was Secretary of State for Wales, 1968-70.

That is why this is categorised as serious ORGANISED crime…

John Allen took the lease out on the building which became the Bryn Alyn Community in 1968, which was when Leo Abse got busy with children’s legislation.

Carlo became Prince of Wales in 1969. George Thomas was a big fan of the Royals Gawd Bless ‘Em and although Thomas was no longer Secretary of State at the time of the Investiture, it was Thomas who organised the song and dance that accompanied it.

  • Prince Charles Investiture July 1969 Investiture of Prince ...

The British state were so grateful that Carlo wasn’t blown sky high by Welsh Nash – although there was an attempt to do that – that the Top Cop who organised the policing, Sir Philip Meyers, was subsequently rewarded with the post of Chief Constable of North Wales, 1974-82. Myers presided over a deeply corrupt force who colluded with the organised abuse and criminality of Dafydd’s gang. After this triumph Myers then served as HM Inspector of Constabulary. See previous posts eg. ‘Top Of The Cops’.

One of the men who was involved in the plan to bomb the Investiture was banged up in Denbigh. He subsequently became friends with Dafydd and in the 1990s made TV appearances calling himself Rev, stating that Dafydd was the only person who knew how to deal with the Drugs Crisis In North Wales and that under no conditions should the North Wales Hospital Denbigh be closed because ‘Welsh boys and girls are going to prison in England’ for want of a hospital bed. Indeed, Welsh boys and girls were killing themselves in prisons in England because Dafydd et al had fitted them up, but the Rev, who wasn’t a Rev at all although he did acquire a dog collar which he wore on TV, didn’t mention that. Neither did the Rev mention that most of Dafydd’s ‘substance abuse patients’ were English men and women whom Dafydd had positively invited to north Wales from big English cities to buy drugs off of him (see eg. post ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’).

The Rev’s daughter subsequently qualified as a social worker from Coleg Menai in approx 2004, although two members of Coleg Menai staff were so concerned at her false allegations and lies about being a social worker and demands to have people arrested and sectioned when she was a student that they declared that they would prevent her from qualifying. Their concerns were ignored on the grounds that the Rev’s daughter was a Welsh speaker and there is a shortage of Welsh speaking social workers. The Rev’s daughter became a social worker. Top Doctor Graham Thomas, a leading light in the BMA in Wales, admitted to me that he knew about the problems that the Rev’s daughter was causing in her capacity as a social worker what with her penchant for having innocent people arrested and sectioned.

# It’s the gang again.

The person who carried the bomb which was designed to blow Carlo to smithereens was also Referred to Dafydd and she later had her newborn baby unlawfully abducted by the staff of St David’s Laundry. I made friends with her in 2000 and Christ were there fireworks from the gwerin. She was found dead in her house not long afterwards when the gang were in the process of fitting me up for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’.

Strange but true for March

 

# Yes it’s them again.

Oh just deal with them someone. It’s a job for TF if he can only get his arse in gear and stop helping Dafydd.

Leo Abse wrote a number of books following retirement which drew very heavily on psychoanalysis. His volume Margaret, Daughter of Beatrice (1989), is a “psycho-biography” of Margaret Thatcher. In The Man Behind the Smile: Tony Blair and the Politics of Perversion (1996), Abse highlighted some of the aspects of Miranda that were later to be cited by Miranda’s opponents on the left. In Fellatio, Masochism, Politics and Love (1997), Abse drew attention to the fact that fellatio had been unspoken of a generation before but had since come to be seen as an essential part of casual sexual relationships. He analysed the tendency for men to engage in risky behaviour by placing their trust in women whom they barely knew and linked it to political developments.

Abse does make some interesting observations in his books – he argues convincingly that Thatch was substantially influenced in her values and politics by her grandmother with whom Thatch and her family lived for much of Thatch’s youth, something that no-one else really paid attention to – but his writing is at the same time terrifying. Abse is clearly a man who excels at using discredited psychoanalytic theory to excuse his own very worrying sexual interest in children as well as many other unpleasant aspects of his character and to analyse the most benign actions of other people in order to smear them. See post ‘A Peer, More Top Docs And News Round Up’. As I read Abse’s work I was reminded of some of the ‘medical records’ that Dafydd and Gwynne wrote about me. It was strikingly similar material.

Leo Abse has been investigated for historical abuse.

After Abse retired from the Commons his nomination for a seat in the House of Lords was vetoed by Margaret Thatcher. I have no idea why, she should have been very grateful to him because Abse’s involvement in the Westminster Paedophile Ring was one of the reasons why it didn’t all blow up in Thatch’s face.

A bust of Abse was unveiled at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff on 22 October 2009. The sculpture was funded by the firm of solicitors he founded, Leo Abse and Cohen and was made by Abse’s second cousin, the sculptor, Luke Shepherd.

Luke Shepherd’s website is currently advertising the work that he does re the training of surgeons. Luke holds courses for Top Doctors at Marylebone Road and in Devon. The ‘International Journal of Surgery’ published a paper by Luke which Luke publicises on his website. Luke’s website contains many other gems. He spent the first part of his life in south Wales but relocated to Dartmoor, where I think he still is. Luke has been commissioned to sculpt busts of Old Nick Edwards, Rhodri Morgan and George Thomas, as people whom Wales wishes to remember. Surely a double bust of Dafydd and Meri will soon appear in the Senedd? Luke has also created sculptures of Shiva, the Buddha and that other well-known deity, Billy Connolly. Luke set up a Tai Chi School in Exeter. There are ripe pickings in the Exeter region, because there’s a lot of Spiritual people in Devon these days, rather than farmers. Exeter University was one of the first institutions to collaborate with Professor Mark Williams’s Mindfulness fraud. Mark Williams is a former colleague of Dafydd’s (see post ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot’).

Luke’s website boasts of his links with the Welsh Arts Council and the Saatchi Gallery.

 

When Leo Abse stood down from the Commons, his seat was succeeded by Paul Murphy. Murphy was Secretary of State for Wales, 1999-02 and 2008-09 and it was in that capacity Murphy took receipt of the Waterhouse Report on 30 Sept 1999. When the Waterhouse Report was published on 15 Feb 2000, Murphy stated that he was delighted to be reassured that there was no VIP paedophile ring in north Wales, never had been and that the matter had been subjected to an exhaustive, transparent investigation.

Before becoming an MP, Paul Murphy had been a Torfaen Councillor – he was elected to Torfaen Council in 1973 – and knew Leo Abse well. Paul Murphy is a committed Roman Catholic and a Bachelor who has not been blessed with children himself. See previous posts.

 

Leo Abse married Marjorie Davies in 1955. They had two children: Tobias, who is a Marxist historian and Bathsheba. Marjorie died in 1996. Abse’s second marriage was to Ania Czepulkowska, in 2000, when Abse was 83 and Czepulkowska 33. Abse died on 19 August 2008. According to a newspaper report, he left his £1.2m estate to his second wife, with no financial provision for his children or grandchildren. Media interviews with Ania suggested that she was rather vulnerable when she met the elderly predator whom she later married and that Abse dominated her. Although she did bag all the dosh. See previous posts.

Dr. Tobias Abse was a history lecturer at Goldsmiths College, London University, 1994-16. Toby Abse has written extensively about the rise of the Fascist Right in Italy prior to WW II. He has been a member of the Socialist Alliance National Executive, the Alliance for Green Socialism National Committee, the Socialist History Society committee and the ‘Revolutionary History’ editorial board and is a regular contributor to UK socialist newspapers and magazines. Toby was educated at William Ellis School, Highgate and Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where he graduated in 1978. Whether Toby was on board with his dad I don’t know, he might have hated the old git and there was probably a very big scrap after the Last Will and Testament was read.

 

Leo’s brother Dannie’s autobiography ‘A Poet In The Family’ describes how one day in 1958 as a Nice Young Doctor, Dannie met up with the newly elected MP for Pontypool in London, his brother Leo. My how they marvelled at what the two boys from Cardiff had become!

Dannie Abse was born in Cardiff and attended Marlborough Road Primary School, where George Thomas was his teacher. In his autobiography Dannie remarked that George Thomas, despite being a high profile Methodist, ‘favoured’ Jewish children although Dannie does not suggest why that might have been. The Abse family were proud of their Jewishness but certainly had plenty of friends and contacts among other communities. Not only were they pals with George the Methodist, but Dannie then went to St Illtyd’s College, a Roman Catholic School in Cardiff and made lifelong contacts there. Paul Flynn, the Labour MP for Newport West since 1987, also went to St Illtyd’s. Paul Flynn stood as the Labour candidate for Denbigh in Oct 1974 and in the 1990s he appeared on ‘The Kane Debates’ on TV with Dafydd. Paul Flynn did contradict the rubbish that Dafydd was spouting about reefer madness but Paul Flynn has never spoken a word about Dafydd’s far more serious crimes. See previous posts for more on Paul Flynn.

Dannie Abse studied medicine. Dannie had no interest in this but at the age of 13 his older brother Wilfred, a Top Doctor and psychiatrist, ordered Dannie to do medicine and Wilfred put Dannie’s name down for Westminster Hospital Medical School, which was where Wilfred had trained. Before ‘walking the wards’ at Westminster ie. undertaking the clinical part of his training, Dannie undertook pre-clinical studies at the Welsh National School of Medicine in Cardiff and then at King’s College, London.

By Dannie’s own account, he didn’t do that well academically as a medical student and he couldn’t cope at all with pathology cases and the gory bits. However he grit his teeth – although at one point he planned to leave medicine, but his family, particularly Leo, pressurised him into remaining partly by reminding Dannie how much it had cost his father to keep him in London studying – and he qualified. During his years as a medical student, what Dannie did do a lot of was to write poetry and he found considerable success in the field.

Dannie might not have been a hot shot as a medical scientist, but he did what virtually all Top Doctors do at medical school, he made influential friends and contacts. Dannie made even more influential friends and contacts through his poetry and writing. Dannie also joined the Welsh Society at King’s College.

As a student at Westminster, Dannie was on the firm of Sir Adolphe Abrahams, who is considered to be the founder of British sports science. Abrahams was born in Cape Town in 1883, the son of Isaac and Esther Abrahams. He was educated at Bedford Modern School, 1891-99, at Bedford School and at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. Abrahams was the medical officer in charge of the British Olympic teams, 1912-48. He was also President of the British Association of Sports and Medicine and a fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine.

The Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives Of The Fellows’ Online supplies more information about Sir Adolphe. Some extracts:

…Abrahams’ clinical training was undertaken at St Bartholomew’s Hospital

Bart’s was a site of wrongdoing and the concealing of wrongdoing in the generation of the Top Doctors who trained Dafydd et al, ie. Sir Adolphe’s generation. One such Top Doctor was the father of Lady Juliet Bingley who was a surgeon at Bart’s; Lady Juliet worked as an almoner (social worker) at Bart’s. Lady Juliet and her son William Bingley colluded with Dafydd and the linked gangs throughout their entire careers but particularly so when they were in senior positions at MIND during the 1970s and 80s and in William’s case when he was appointed CEO of the Mental Health Act Commission in 1990; a Director of Morecombe Bay Primary Care Trust, 2000-06; then Chairman of North Lancashire NHS Primary Care Trust and Professor of Mental Health Law and Ethics at the University of Central Lancashire, 2000-04. Bingley ran an NHS consultancy which flogged ‘expertise’ to the NHS. His conflict of interest resulted in him having to resign as Chairman of the North Lancashire NHS PCT. Bingley was killed in a fatal accident when out fell-walking three weeks later, in 2011. With his wife Helen, William Bingley was also co-founder of the Abaseen Foundation, a charidee developing health care in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, formerly the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan. S

Lady Juliet was married to Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, who after WW II served as Deputy Director of Air Warfare. He went on to be Chief of Staff to the Flag Officer (Air) and then Commander of the aircraft-carrier HMS Eagle in 1952. Bingley was appointed Fifth Sea Lord and Deputy Chief of Naval Staff (Air) in 1954 and Flag Officer, Aircraft Carriers in 1958. He was made Commander-in-Chief of the Mediterranean Fleet and NATO Commander Allied Forces Mediterranean in 1959 and then Commander-in-Chief, Portsmouth and Allied Commander-in-Chief, Channel in 1961. Sir Alec retired in 1963. Bingley was one of those who served close to Lord Louis Mountbatten and knew about the associated scandals as well as the Gay Spies in the Admiralty etc. See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’.

After qualification he undertook postgraduate study in Vienna. 

Vienna was a hot spot for the Top Doctors of that era who had an interest in psychoanalysis who used their positions as psychoanalysts and psychiatrists to conceal organised abuse. Whether Sir Adolphe was doing anything related to psychoanalysis in Vienna I don’t know, but he will have met analysts while he was there.

Abrahams served in the RAMC as a medical officer, 1915-20, attaining the rank of Major. He was appointed to the consultant staff of Westminster Hospital in 1920 and was also for a time consultant physician to Hampstead General Hospital and to the Royal Chest Hospital. He became Dean of Westminster Hospital Medical School shortly before the opening of the new Westminster School in Horseferry Road, in 1939, at which time he was knighted. 

Some months ago I read an historical account of a Westminster medical student who had been arrested after breaking into the nurses home, sexually harassing – and possibly indecently assaulting – one of the Angels within and helping himself to someone else’s purse. The lawyer representing him, one Ronnie Waterhouse, ensured that the Nice Young Doctor’s career was not adversely affected by a prosecution by thrashing out a deal with the Dean of Westminster Hospital Medical School. I am not sure if the helpful Dean was Sir Adolphe, but this is by no means the only anecdote that I have heard regarding appalling behaviour on the part of medical students of Dafydd’s vintage who should have been identified as far too irresponsible or indeed frankly dangerous to have been allowed to qualify. In that era, academic standards in medical schools were laughable – although that had changed by the 1980s – and once a medical student had begun training there really was almost nothing that they could do which would result in them not qualifying, although they were ferociously bullied and brutalised during their training.

Sir Adolphe was a general physician with a special interest in gastroenterology. He was also deeply interested in athletics and the training of athletes and was consulting medical officer to the British Olympic team on numerous occasions between 1912 and 1948. Abrahams’s written work was largely on gastroenterological subjects, exercise, physical fitness and the training of athletes. In his early years he was also interested in photography, especially that of moving objects, and in motoring.

Photographs eh?? Sir Adolphe could well have been photographing many things, but Dafydd’s mate Professor Linford Rees who held a Chair at Bart’s in the 1990s was renowned for livening up his lectures with photographs of ‘bathing beauties’ who happened to be his patients. See post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent…’. Whichever grim institution the bathing beauties will have had the misfortune to have been detained in will not have invested in bubble bath to have enabled the suds to have acted as a fig leaf a la TV adverts. The bathing beauties may not even have had the privilege of hot water and almost certainly were bathing in a communal area in full view of other people, as well as Linford and his camera.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful!

In 1928 Abrahams was Arris and Gale Lecturer of the Royal College of Surgeons and some years later Lumleian Lecturer, as well as Censor, of the Royal College of Physicians. For a time he was examiner in medicine in the Universities of Cambridge, Liverpool and London and President of the British Society of Gastroenterologists, as well as of the Section of Medicine, Royal Society of Medicine.

He was a physician of the old school to whom a detailed history and clinical examination were of basic importance and of more importance and interest than the results of laboratory investigations, which came last to confirm or refute the clinical diagnosis.

Sir Adolphe wasn’t one to worry about science…

His ward rounds were often enlivened by vivid, and sometimes caustic, comments to students but his detachment perhaps made rapport with patients less easy.

There’s the confession. He was a complete bastard who intimidated the students and was so cold and contemptuous that the patients hated him.

He was certainly an unforgettable figure, elegantly dressed in tail coat, monocled on occasion,

God knows what the patients thought.

  • never in a hurry, and with an almost eighteenth century grace and charm; his knobbly hands in marked contrast to the rest. His face had a Dickensian look about it. He wrote his medical notes and opinions in microscopic script, always lucid and well phrased. A great reader, he once remarked how much he would enjoy a few weeks in prison, away from all distractions, so that he could devote himself wholeheartedly to reading.

If only someone had been willing to arrange it

  • He did not care for holidays, which interfered with his well ordered life and reading and writing.
  • Sir Adolphe the Gentleman Thug must have been the eccentric Top Doctor who rang Denbigh in the 1990s trying to get hold of Dafydd. When Dafydd’s secretary told him that Dafydd was on holiday, the caller replied ‘A holiday? A holiday? I’ve never heard of such a thing. I’m on duty 24 hours a day 7 days a week’.
  • He was an excellent after dinner speaker and a considerable judge of food and wine, of which he partook sparingly.

So how did Raffles ever gain the expertise necessary to be a considerable judge of food and wine? Is this code for Raffles throwing hissy fits if he had been supplied with food which wasn’t up to his liking? It wasn’t that Raffles was the most dreadful old bugger, it was simply Raffles having a discerning palate.

The brother of a renowned athlete, he was no mean performer himself, and was often seen in middle age running round Regent’s Park. At a scientific meeting he showed a section of one of his own arteries, perhaps to emphasize the dissociation between structure and function.

Did Raffles perform an on the spot self-dissection??

In later years his hearing became impaired but even this, he said, had its compensations.

It was even easier to ignore the screams of horror and the many complaints.

On retirement from hospital work, his interests remained unabated and he spent a good deal of his time browsing in medical libraries. On Christmas Day he turned up regularly at his old hospital wards, impeccably dressed as usual, to watch with detached amusement his former junior colleagues, dressed in crazy garb, carve the turkey. ‘I could never do that’, he remarked.

Everyone would have known that Raffles and they probably wished that you’d stopped turning up to blight their Christmas.

He married Adrienne Walsh in 1922 and had one son and one daughter. His younger brothers were Sir Sydney Abrahams, PC, for many years Chief Justice in East Africa and Ceylon, who predeceased him, and Harold Maurice Abrahams, the Olympic athlete.

Raffles died in 1967, so he lived to see Dafydd launch his glorious career at the North Wales Hospital. Raffles will have known Admiral Sir Alec Bingley’s father-in-law, the surgeon at Barts…

 

Raffles acquired some interesting relatives via his younger brother Harold Abrahams. Harold Maurice Abrahams (15 December 1899 – 14 January 1978) was Olympic champion in 1924 in the 100 metres sprint, a feat depicted in the 1981 movie ‘Chariots of Fire’.

Harold Abrahams served as a lieutenant in the British Army. He attended Bedford School, Repton School and then Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, 1919-23. Abrahams then trained as a lawyer. At Cambridge, he was a member of the Cambridge University Athletics Club (of which he was president 1922–1923), Cambridge University Liberal Club, the Pitt Club and the Gilbert and Sullivan Society. Abrahams was also a member of the Achilles Club, a track and field club formed in 1920 by and for past and present representatives of Oxford and Cambridge universities. 

At the 1924 Summer Games, Abrahams won the 100 m in a time of 10.6 seconds, beating all the American favourites, including the 1920 gold-medal winner Charley Paddock. In third place was Arthur Porritt, later Governor-General of New Zealand and Queen’s Surgeon. See previous posts for information relating to Arthur Porritt’s collusion with Top Doctors’ crimes and the role that his son Jonathan Porritt played in colluding with Dafydd et al. The Paris Olympics 100 m dash took place at 7 p.m. on 7 July 1924, and Abrahams and Porritt dined together at 7 p.m. on 7 July every year thereafter, until Abrahams’s death in 1978. 

In May 1925, Abrahams broke his leg while long-jumping, ending his athletic career. He returned to his legal career. In 1928, he was team captain of the British Olympic team at Amsterdam and Editor of the Official British Olympic Report for the same games. Subsequently he worked as an athletics journalist for forty years, becoming a commentator on the sports for BBC radio. In 1936, Abrahams reported the Berlin Olympics for the BBC. Later in his life, Abrahams also became President of the Jewish Athletic Association, and served as Chairman for the Amateur Athletic Association(AAA).

Although not an official timer, Abrahams was present when Roger Bannister broke the four-minute mile in 1954. See previous posts.

In early 1934, Abrahams met D’Oyly Carte Opera Company singer Sybil Evers. They wed in December 1936. Sybil Evers could not have children, so they adopted an eight-week-old boy, Alan, in 1942 and a nearly three-year-old girl, Sue, in 1946. During the Nazi regime and war, the Abrahams’s also fostered two Jewish refugees: a German boy called “Ken Gardner” (born Kurt Katzenstein) and an Austrian girl named Minka.

Evers died in 1963 at the age of 59 and Harold set up two awards in her name: the Sybil Evers Memorial Prize for Singing (1965–1995), an annual cash prize awarded to the best female singer in her last year at the Webber Douglas School of Singing and Dramatic Art and the Sybil Abrahams Memorial Trophy, presented each year from 1964 onward at Buck House by Phil the Greek, President of the British Amateur Athletics Association to the best British woman athlete.

Harold Abrahams was a keen Freemason. 

Abrahams was inducted into the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 1981 and into the England Athletics Hall of Fame in 2009.

Abrahams has been recognised with an English Heritage Blue plaque at his former home in Golders Green which was unveiled by his daughter Sue and nephew Tony Abrahams:

A plaque from the Heritage Foundation was unveiled at Harold Abrahams’s birthplace, Rutland Road in Bedford, on 8 July 2012. This coincided with the Olympic torch relay passing through the town.

In July 2012, plans were announced to erect a memorial to Abrahams in Telford to recognise that before the 1924 Olympics he won a gold medal in the 100-yard sprint at the Midlands Area AAA championships at St George’s Recreation Club ground. The memorial, in the form of a plaque, was unveiled by Abrahams’s daughter Sue in October 2014 in the lounge of the club, which now possesses the medal that he won at the event.

Abrahams’s daughter Sue married Pat Pottle. Pat Pottle was a founding member of the Committee of 100, an anti-nuclear group which broke away from CND. In 1962, at the height of the Cold War, Pottle was jailed for 18 months for conspiracy (as one of the Wethersfield Six) to organise the Committee of 100 demonstrations at the nuclear base USAF Wethersfield in Essex. In Wormwood Scrubs, Pottle met the Communist spy and double agent George Blake and Pat’s outrage at the “vicious” sentence imposed on Blake led Pat and two others, Michael Randle and Sean Bourke, help Blake to escape in Oct 1966. It was a few months after Blake had escaped that Pottle met and married Sue.

For most of his working life Pat Pottle was a printer, running his own Stanhope Press in the 1960s, working as printer for the Peace Pledge Union in the early 1990s and running his own Pottle Press in the late 1990s.

Pat died in Oct 2000 and his obituary in The Torygraph stated that:

‘Though Pottle and his co-conspirator Michael Randle were suspected [of helping Blake escape], the security services decided not to prosecute on the grounds that it might be seen as “persecution – that the big fish had got away so they were taking it out on the little fish”. The pair were only charged with aiding and abetting Blake’s escape in 1991, after they had written a full account of their involvement, ‘The Blake Affair – How We Freed George Blake – and Why’ (1989), and after Conservative MPs had demanded that the case be reopened.

Blake, a British intelligence officer, was found guilty in 1961 of supplying information to the Soviet Union. He was sentenced to 42 years in prison, one year for each British agent thought to have been killed through his treachery. It was the longest specified sentence in modern times.

Pottle and Randle met him and an Irish criminal called Sean Bourke in Wormwood Scrubs where they were serving sentences imposed in 1962 for conspiracy following the occupation of an American air base at Wethersfield, Essex, by supporters of the Committee of 100 (a breakaway group from CND).

In May 1966, after their release, Bourke approached them about springing Blake. In October Blake was helped over the wall by Bourke using a rope ladder. He was then hidden in various London flats by Pottle and Randle. In December he was smuggled to Berlin in a compartment hidden under the bunk of a camper van driven by Randle; he later surfaced in Moscow.

For years it was assumed that Blake’s escape had been masterminded by the KGB, but in the run-up to their trial Pottle and Randle secured the disclosure of MI5 papers which showed they had been suspected from the beginning.

In 1970 these suspicions were confirmed when Sean Bourke wrote a book about the affair in which he thinly disguised the names of the other participants as “Pat Porter” and “Michael Reynolds”. In 1987, Pottle and Randle were named in press reports as having been involved in the breakout. Still no action was taken.

At their trial at the Old Bailey, Pottle and Randle who represented themselves, argued that their motives had been humanitarian and that since the security services had known of their involvement but had done nothing until MPs demanded their prosecution, the trial was political. They were unanimously acquitted by the jury…

In 1960 he joined the Committee of 100, a breakaway group dedicated to using civil disobedience to advance their cause. The following year he took over from Randle as secretary of the group after Randle had been jailed for his involvement in an anti-nuclear demonstration. Pottle participated in a number of demonstrations including a four-hour sit-in at the Soviet embassy.

In December 1961, when he was wanted by the police after the occupation of the air base at Wethersfield, he went into hiding. Only in February 1962, when he appeared at a press conference at Kingsway Hall in London, was Pottle arrested by Special Branch men. He defended himself and attempted to use the trial as a platform for his political beliefs. He, Randle and four other defendants were jailed for 18 months.

After his release, Pottle became secretary to the philosopher and disarmament campaigner Bertrand Russell. In 1964 he was put on trial in China and deported for “inciting the Chinese people to overthrow the state”. Later the same year he was deported from Greece after joining anti-nuclear demonstrations. Months later he was deported from Malta for organising an anti-nuclear demonstration there.

He co-founded the Vietnam Information Group in 1967, to help American deserters and draft dodgers reach Sweden on false documents. A year later he was arrested demonstrating in London against the Colonels’ coup in Greece. Later he organised demonstrations against the Soviet occupation of Czechoslovakia.

In 1969, Pottle seemed to have grown tired of civil disobedience and with his family moved to Wales. There he went into business as an antiques dealer and ran the Pottle Press, printing leaflets for the anti-nuclear movement. Ten years later they returned to London.

 

Pat and Sue lived in Croesor and were friends with many of the radicals and bohemians who were there during the 1970s and 80s, as described in previous posts eg ‘The Village’. They were friendly with local people as well as with the ‘Welsh Bloomsbury Set’ and they will have known about Dafydd’s gang, who were making the life of the locals very difficult. Pat must have known that Bertrand Russell was an abusive man who was utilising the services of Dafydd’s network to put anyone who raised concerns about Russell’s conduct out of action (see post ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’). Sue and her friends did know about the con of appointing a ‘Welsh speaking social worker’ in the late 1960s for language equality purposes, who ensured that Gwynne and Dafydd found it even easier to bang up anyone who had spilt the gang’s pints, because they’d been assessed in their first language so OF COURSE the assessment was fair and yes they are definitely nuts and need to be locked up in Denbigh for decades without trial…

In 2011 Thomas Merfyn Hughes, a retired social worker who lived in Croesor, was found dead in someone else’s garden. His body was concealed from view and Mr Hughes had been dead for many, many hours before his body was found. I do not know if Mr Hughes was the Welsh speaking social worker of legend who simply made it even easier for Dafydd et al to abduct and imprison people who had spilt their pints, but in approx 2005, Mr Hughes was the manager of the thugs of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team and when they refused to hand over their file on me – which they should never have had because I had never been a ‘client’ of theirs – Mr Hughes kindly went to their office and retrieved it, giving me a copy. See previous posts eg. ‘A Particularly Worrying Death’. Mr Hughes had previously served as the election agent of Elfyn Llwyd, a solicitor and barrister who was the Plaid MP for Meirionydd Nant Conwy, 1992-2010 and Dwyfor Meirionnydd, 2010-15. Elfyn Llwyd was President of Gwynedd Law Society, 1990-91. It was always believed in north Wales that Elfyn Llwyd was an even bigger crook than the other lawyers in the region.

Yma O Hyd!

As Elfyn will know, because his wife Eleri is a Welsh songster. Did Eleri sing at Mr Hughes’s funeral then Elfyn? ‘Calon Lan’ perhaps? Or ‘I Am the Mob’ a la Catatonia?

I did know about Pat Pottle being put on trial for helping George Blake escape years after Blake had got away and Pat’s trial was famously farcical, but I’ve only just noticed the year that Pat was put on trial at the Old Bailey. It was 1991. The year that I and my friends who were witnesses to Dafydd’s criminality had our careers wrecked and the year in which the gang made two consecutive attempts to have me imprisoned on the basis of the perjury of Tony and Sadie Francis. One of my court appearances was at the Royal Courts of Justice at The Strand. So I was down from the Bethesda, in the Royal Courts of Justice, on ludicrous charges and Pat Pottle, who had only recently moved from Croesor, was up in the Old Bailey on ludicrous charges…

In Feb 1991 Lilibet knighted Peter Morrison.

Pat Pottle was someone whom it would have been known was aware of a great deal of what Bertrand Russell and his friends got up to and who assisted them. In 1991 the North Wales Police were midway through their investigation into the possible presence of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. The Chief Constable of North Wales refused to co-operate with the investigation and in 1992 the investigation stopped when the North Wales Police announced that there was no evidence of any paedophile ring.

The Westminster Paedophile Ring experienced a major panic in 1990, because Greville Janner and his mate the Leicestershire social worker Frank Beck – a Liberal Party Councillor – were hauled in and questioned by the police regarding the abuse of children in care. Janner’s solicitor Sir David Napley was so convinced that Janner would be prosecuted that he retained George Carman QC, George having established his reputation when he got Jeremy Thorpe off charges of incitement to kill and conspiracy in 1979. Beck was charged and remanded in custody. Janner was not charged and when he reappeared in the House of Turds after being interviewed under caution he was given a round of applause. In Nov 1991 at Leicester Crown Court Frank Beck was sentenced to five life sentences in prison and an additional 24 years for the physical and sexual abuse, including the rape, of more than 100 children in his care. Years later the DPP admitted that Janner should have been charged as well and no-one was able to explain why he wasn’t.

Frank Beck always maintained that he had been scapegoated for the crimes of people more famous and with more clout than he had. Peter Howarth said exactly the same thing when he was jailed in 1994. Beck was found dead in Whitemoor Prison ‘from a heart attack’ on 31 May 1994, aged 51, just over two weeks after John Smith died ‘after a heart attack’. Howarth was found dead in Wakefield Prison on 24 April 1997. So neither Frank Beck and Peter Howarth were around to name names at the Waterhouse Inquiry, particularly as Ronnie Waterhouse suddenly decided that he would be taking a holiday in Hong Kong shortly after the Waterhouse Inquiry opened. Ronnie popped off on holiday for a few weeks in March 1994. While Ronnie was in Hong Kong he met up and dined with Derry Irvine, who just happened to be in Hong Kong as well! On another occasion Ronnie was most impressed with two junior barristers of Derry’s whom Ronnie encountered – a Cherie Booth and a Tony Blair…

While Pat Pottle and I were appearing in Britain’s most famous Courts, it was all kicking off at Bangor University. It was in the early 1990s that Dafydd’s gwerin declared war on a senior sociologist at Bangor and he was wrongly accused by the gwerin – and by ‘The Guardian’ – of discriminating against Welsh speakers when appointing staff. One person caught in the cross-fire was Nerys, Merfyn’s late wife, who years later died after Dafydd’s mates at the Walton Centre found that there was no treatment for her, just after Dafydd and the gang had declared war on Merfyn and were openly telling anyone who would listen that they would get him out of his job as VC of Bangor University (see post ‘Badlands’).

Nerys became ill not long after the brother-in-law of Miranda’s policy adviser John McTernan nicked my computer.

I am currently reading more about the George Blake case and I might return to it in a future blog post.

The Home Secretary when Pat Pottle and I were making guests appearances at the Old Bailey and the Royal Courts of Justice was Ken Baker. In previous posts I have explained why I think that Ken Baker may have had something to do with the framing of and wrongful imprisonment and detention in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh of Patient F.

The DPP when I and Pat Pottle were prosecuted at the Royal Courts of Justice and the Old Bailey respectively was Sir Allan Green.

  • Godfather Horse's Head Cake | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

 

Sir Allan David Green (born 1 March 1935) was DPP, 1987-92. He was called to the Bar in 1959 and rose to become a recorder in 1979. Sir Allan resigned as DPP in October 1991 when he was spotted kerb-crawling in King’s Cross, London. He claimed that he was holding discussions with them but about what he did not explain. Sir Allan’s wife committed suicide in 1993. Or rather she was found dead and it was claimed that she committed suicide, but there were a great many things about that suicide which did not add up. See post ‘A Future Leader Of The Labour Party’.

Sir Allan continued with his career however, both prosecuting and defending in important cases, particularly murders. Between 2000 and 2004 he represented 10 British soldiers in the 1972 Bloody Sunday Inquiry. Sir Allan had been paid £1.5 million for his work on the Inquiry. Just three words:

Kincora Boys’ Home.

Sir Allan is a member of Inner Temple and remained a practising barrister in London until his retirement in 2013. Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss is a member of Inner Temple. Butler-Sloss was responsible for concealing the chaos that Dafydd’s associates in Cleveland caused in 1987-88 (see post ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’). Butler-Sloss is the sister of Lord Michael Havers who spent a lifetime colluding with Dafydd et al and as Attorney General under Thatcher, blocked the prosecution of Westminster and Whitehall paedophiles such as Cyril Smith and Sir Geoffrey Hayman. See previous posts.

After Sir Allan resigned as DPP, Dame Barbara Mills was appointed and then Dafydd et al really celebrated. Mrs Mills’s daughter has just been appointed Chair of the Parole Board. Is it not extraordinary that Dafydd is now nearly 90 years old and all public appointments still have to be made with him in mind?

 

Dannie Abse’s good friend at King’s College was Russell Barton. Russell Barton was one of the 96 British medical students who spent a month in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp two weeks after its liberation in 1945 to help survivors. Barton later became a psychiatrist and in 1968 his comments about Bergen-Belson caused an enormous row when Barton wrote about the medical students’ experiences and his understanding of Belsen based on his time there, in an invited article in Purnell’s History of the Second World War. As well as stating that Bergen-Belsen was ‘not so bad’, Barton proffered the following reasons for the conditions found there:

Most people attributed the conditions of the inmates to deliberate intention on the part of the Germans in general and the camp administrators in particular. Inmates were eager to cite examples of brutality and neglect, and visiting journalists from different countries interpreted the situation according to the needs of propaganda at home.

For example, one newspaper emphasized the wickedness of the “German masters” by remarking that some of the 10,000 unburied dead were naked. In fact, when the dead were taken from a hut and left in the open for burial, other prisoners would take their clothing from them …

German medical officers told me that it had been increasingly difficult to transport food to the camp for some months. Anything that moved on the autobahns was likely to be bombed …

I was surprised to find records, going back for two or three years, of large quantities of food cooked daily for distribution. I became convinced, contrary to popular opinion, that there had never been a policy of deliberate starvation. This was confirmed by the large numbers of well-fed inmates. Why then were so many people suffering from malnutrition?… The major reasons for the state of Belsen were disease, gross overcrowding by central authority, lack of law and order within the huts, and inadequate supplies of food, water and drugs.

In trying to assess the causes of the conditions found in Belsen one must be alerted to the tremendous visual display, ripe for purposes of propaganda, that masses of starved corpses presented.

One thing that really outraged people about Barton’s article were his perceived parallels between the regimes controlling Belsen and NHS psychiatric hospitals; he noted similar harmful psychological consequences for those held within and commented that the public appeared to turn a blind eye to both. Claire Hilton, in a June 2018 article published in ‘Contemporary British History’ which reviewed the row over Barton’s 1968 article, stated that ‘While some of his interpretations of Belsen were incorrect, his experience there connected intimately with his passion and persistence to provide humane and dignified treatment and care for patients and to improve hospital facilities’.

Russell Barton failed with regard to his attempts to do that and although he did speak out regarding psychiatry he did not ever raise the matter of the psychiatric system being used to conceal organised paedophile rings, although he knew that was happening, as did his old friend Dannie Abse and Dannie’s brothers Leo and Wilfred.

Holocaust deniers cited Barton’s article on Bergen-Belsen, most famously in Did Six Million Really Die? The Truth At Last, a pamphlet allegedly written by NF member Richard Verrall under the pseudonym Richard E. Harwood and published in 1974 by neo-Nazi propagandist Ernst Zundel, another Holocaust denier and pamphleteer. In 1983, Holocaust survivor Sabina Citron began a private prosecution under s.181 of the Canadian Criminal Code against Zündel, charging him with spreading false news. Citron was subsequently joined in her proceedings against Zündel by the Gov’t of Ontario. The Supreme Court concluded in the 1988 trial that “The pamphlet Did Six Million Really Die? does not fit with received views of reality because it is not part of reality.” Russell Barton was called as a witness for the defence in the trial of Ernst Zundel.

I haven’t yet worked out what was happening here. Barton – someone who was a personal friend of a man involved with the Westminster Paedophile Ring who was from a Jewish family and using Jewish networks to conceal the offending – made anti-semitic comments in 1968 and combined them with a critique of the dreadful abuses in psychiatry but didn’t mention Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. However his comments re psychiatry caused outrage and his anti-semitic comments were taken up by Holocaust deniers a few years later. In 1988 fire rained down on Barton once more as a result of the Ernst Zundel trial; in 1988 Dafydd et al were busy putting the boot into Mary, Alison Taylor, me and my friends, including Brown who was living in Leicester, Greville’s manor. The Greville who was mates with Leo Abse, who were both part of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and both linked to Dafydd. By 1988, I had made a formal complaint about Dafydd and the gang and it was obvious that I wasn’t going to withdraw it or go away. It was at about this time that someone tried to fracture Brown’s skull. Was someone trying to shaft Barton because of his links with organised abuse? Or was someone trying to shaft him lest he ever went one step further re his critique of psychiatry and blew the whistle on the Top Doctors who were using psychiatry to conceal the Westminster Paedophile Ring?

 

Dannie Abse’s fellow students at Westminster on Raffles’s ‘firm’ were Neville Stotesbury, Eric Trimmer and Norman Kreitman. Neville Stotesbury is described in Dannie’s autobiography as a Tory who was opposed to the establishment of the NHS and argued with Dannie about this. Dannie remained loyal to Nye Bevan of course and explains in ‘A Poet In The Family’ how he knew that the NHS would Help The Poor. Including those Poor who complained about Dannie’s brother’s mates sexually assaulting children. After Army service and GP experience in Wiltshire, in 1951 Neville Stotesbury joined a group practice in East Bristol (doctors Duerden, Plant, Glendinning, Dowling, and Jahans). In 1964 the group, with the exception of Dr Duerden, moved into the new St George Health Centre in Bristol. Stotsebury died in 2010.

Sir Peter Morrison’s family seat was in Wiltshire. Morrison’s father John Morrison aka Lord Margadale was the Tory MP for Salisbury, 1942-65. Peter Morrison’s older brother Sir Charles was the Tory MP for Devizes, 1964-92. Dr D.G.E. Wood, the Bangor GP who was facilitating Dafydd’s gang in the 1980s and 90s came from a medical family in Bristol; Wood’s father was a Top Doctor in the Bristol area and Wood went to Bristol Medical School. Lord David Hunt spent his time as the Tory MP for the Wirral and then Wirral West, 1976-97 and as a Welsh Office Minister and then Secretary of State for Wales, 4 May 1990-27 May 1993 and 26 June 1995-5 July 1995, colluding with Dafydd and the gang. Hunt is a lawyer who did his degree at Bristol University at about the same time that Wood was a student there. In Lilibet’s 1973 burfday honours Hunt received an MBE for ‘political services in the west of England’.

I’d love to know what those services were. Anything to do with that paedophile ring in Bridgwater targeting kids from my school then Hunt, the gang which had links to Dafydd’s gang and thrived under Tom King when he was the Tory MP for Bridgwater, 1970-92?

An unprincipled git who did anything necessary to bag a place in the Cabinet and someone who has questions to answer, including about that drowning of a party goer at a Tory shagfest in the Polden Hills in the early 1970s.

Hunt is now Chairman of the law firm DAC Beachcroft’s financial services division and is regarded as a major figure in the world of insurance and financial services. DAC Beachcroft carries out work for the MDU. David Hunt grew up in Glyn Ceiriog in Denbighshire, although he went to school at Liverpool College. Hunt’s father was Alan N. Hunt, a Royal Naval Reserves Officer. One of the Sir Alec Bingley-Lord Mountbatten network then. See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’. When David Hunt was young he joined the Young Conservatives. So he’ll have found out about Dafydd’s gang from his the big wigs in the Young Conservatives in that era, Beata Brookes and Peter Walker (see previous posts eg. ‘On The Occasion of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’)…

I don’t know whether he is any relation to the Dr Duerden who worked with Wood’s network in Bristol, but a Martin Duerden used to be the Deputy/Acting Medical Director of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board when Merfyn was Chairman and the Top Docs conspired to withold vital information and cause patient deaths to create a scandal and force Merfyn to resign. See previous posts eg. ‘The Point Is To Change It’. Martin Duerden was a smug arrogant bastard who used to do everything possible to trip Merfyn up in Board meetings and he blocked all suggestions for improvement.

‘We’re a self-regulating profession Professor Jones.’

They’re a bunch of fucking criminals who are killing patients.

I note from Duerden’s entry on the Medical Register that he qualified from Dafydd’s mates stronghold, Newcastle-upon-Tyne Medical School, in 1982 and at present Duerden has not got a license to practice.

Oh what has happened Martin? Don’t tell me that you are under investigation for very serious crimes? Or have you suddenly decided that medicine is no longer for you? It’s not as though you’ll have been hounded out for whistleblowing is it…

 

Dannie’s friend Dr Eric Trimmer died in 1997. He worked as a GP for 25 years and also became a well-known medical journalist. Trimmer’s books included books on baby care, childbirth, on rejuvenation, relaxation techniques and healthy eating and specifically ‘Live Long, Stay Young’, ‘A Young Man’s Guide To Medicine’, ‘What Every Woman Should Know About Her Body’ – I’d better order that one, I’ve been in ignorance for years and Eric published that in 1966 – and the intriguingly titled ‘A Visual Dictionary of Sex’ (1971)…

Dannie’s other big medical school pal Norman Kreitman was a psychiatrist who fancied himself as a poet. After graduating in 1949, Kreitman worked at a TB hospital on the Isle of Wight before training as a psychiatrist at the Maudsley, pretty much at the same time as Dafydd was ‘training’ at the Maudsley. As an older and well-known Top Doctor, Kreitman spoke about his application and selection for ‘training’ at the Maudsley and was quite frank about the laughably lax entry requirements, the bizarre interview and the fact that the Maudsley accepted all comers because psychiatry was such an unpopular speciality and the Maudsley wanted as many trainees as possible to give the institution credibility. Kreitman relocated to Edinburgh in 1966 and became the Director of the MRC Unit for Epidemiological Studies in Psychiatry. Like all the big names in psychiatry of his generation, Kreitman concealed extensive wrongdoing, including that of Dafydd et al and actually received a very poor training. Norman Kreitman is credited with coining the term ‘parasuicide’. For further info re Kreitman and his hopeless, abusive, mad colleagues at the Maudsley and elsewhere, see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’.

When Professor Mark Williams worked in Bangor with Dafydd’s gang, there was quite a problem with patients in north Wales injuring themselves but not fatally, which was how Williams became an expert on parasuicide and wrote his book ‘Cry Of Pain’. My own belief is that there was such a problem in north Wales because patients were abused, provoked and tormented by the staff constantly and a lot of injuries were out of sheer frustration. I only know one person who was referred to Mark Williams for ‘parasuicide’ and this person knew of no-one else either, so we’ve always wondered where Williams’s data came from, just as we wondered where all the people in north Wales who recovered from depression by using Mindfulness are. We were patients throughout those years and we saw no evidence of the miracles or indeed the clinical trials.

My friend who was referred to Mark Williams ended up self-injuring more while he was ‘in therapy’ with Williams because he found Williams so difficult and obstructive. Williams was attempting to use a staged plan to reduce this man’s self-harming but the plan didn’t work and Williams acknowledged this but didn’t change the plan. So my friend continued injuring himself and Williams would then order him to Start Again. So my friend never finished the plan, it was just months and months of escalating self-harm. My friend gave up with Mark Williams in the end, but before he did, he found out that Mark was writing ‘Cry Of Pain’ in which he promoted the theory which had failed so dismally with my friend. Some five years ago my friend wrote to Mark Williams and told him in some detail that he believed that Mark had caused him quite serious damage. He was still self-harming 20 years after Mark’s ‘therapy’. My friend asked to see Mark’s data re the successful parasuicide outcomes. Mark told him that he no longer had the data. Williams bagged himself a Chair at Oxford supposedly on the basis of that data, along with his Mindfulness success. And he didn’t keep the data???

Did Mark Williams perhaps bag that Chair at Oxford on the basis of his knowledge of er Dafydd et al and what was done to a group of junior academics and media professionals in the early 1990s who had found out some of what was going on?

There is a substantial problem now with young people self-harming, many years after Mark Williams developed an effective strategy to address this. Over to you Mark!!!

 

Although Dannie Abse and his family maxed out on Dannie’s status as a Top Doctor at every opportunity, Dannie’s real influence lay with all the folk whom he knew from his literary and artistic circles. Even when still a student, Dannie clocked up many worthwhile contacts. Among them were Dylan Thomas, Stephen Spender and Herbert Read. Dannie knew the painter Fred James and he knew Leo Solomon who was very friendly with Leo. Dannie was friendly with Denise Levertov, a poet who had previously worked as an Angel. Denise’s mum was Welsh and her dad, Dr Paul Levertoff, was Jewish. Denise emigrated to the US. Dannie wrote theatre reviews as well as poetry and rubbed noses with luvvies. He was friends with the actors Theo Bikel, Michael Flanders and Miriam Karlin.

Dannie’s Abse’s girlfriend, who became his wife, was Joan Mercer from St Helen’s, Liverpool. When she was still at school, Joan was Secretary of the local Independent Labour Party. Joan went to the LSE; she was there while Ralph Miliband was there and like Miliband she was a big fan of Harold Laski, the man who’s influence enabled Miliband to serve in the Royal Navy, although Miliband wasn’t a British national (see post ‘What’s Left? The Politics Of Social Justice?’). Joan then worked in the library of the ‘Financial Times’.

Dannie Abse certainly knew how to pick his contacts, he knew Noa Eshkol, the daughter of Levi Eshkol, PM of Israel, 1963-69. Dannie knew Noa when she was a trainee with Ballet Jooss at Swiss Cottage. Dannie and his wife were friends with Emanuel Litvinoff, who was at their wedding.

Dannie even met T.S. Eliot when he was a student. I presume that Dannie didn’t mention that business of T.S. Eliot having his wife Viv banged up in an asylum for years, but nonetheless OK’d it with Bertrand Russell to go into the asylum on a regular basis and have sex with Viv. Bertrand will have been pulling a few strings with the Top Doctors again because in those days asylums were segregated by gender and the only men allowed into the women’s wing to sexually exploit the patients were the Angels and Top Doctors. And Bertrand Russell.

  • Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell, OM FRS was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic, political activist, Nobel laureate and associate of Gwynne and Dafydd.

Dannie’s autobiography includes a few of the highlights during his time at medical school, other than the names of all the famous people whom he hung about with. He mentions the medical student from Cardiff who shot himself dead because he feared that he had made a cinema usherette pregnant. Dannie’s girlfriend at the time – his girlfriend before Dannie met Joan Mercer – simply said ‘oh well tough shit’ when she heard about the young man’s death. Dannie didn’t ever get near to shooting himself but he did do a great deal of shagging a great many people and was encouraged in this by every male member of his family. Wilfred however, his older brother who was already working as a Top Doctor, a psychiatrist, did warn Dannie to ALWAYS use a condom. Not lest he made an usherette pregnant, but to protect against catching syphilis, which Wilfred knew was quite likely with Dannie’s sexual habits.

After qualifying as a Top Doctor, in 1950 Dannie returned to south Wales and took a job as a locum in Cardiff. By 1950, Dannie’s former teacher George Thomas was the Labour MP for Cardiff Central.

Dannie undoubtedly knew that George Thomas was molesting boys and he will have known about the trafficking of teenaged girls from Wales to England in the years leading up to the Profumo Affair (see ‘On The Occasion Of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’).

Dannie served in the RAF for his National Service, working in a chest clinic; Dannie Abse spent his entire medical career as a chest doctor, concerned quite often with TB. Dannie’s National Service included a stint in a clinic in central London, near the BBC. Dannie of course had mates who worked at the BBC and they no doubt served him well in later years whenever anyone threatened to go public on the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Dannie was also posted to N Ireland.

Dannie describes serving under the most appalling Wing Commander while he did his National Service. The Wing Commander didn’t violently assault Dannie or the other junior officers, but he was rude and bullying. Dannie explains in his book how he wreaked his revenge on the Wing Commander when Dannie was responsible for carrying out medicals on all the officers, including the Wing Commander, a non-medic. Dannie took delight in repeatedly demanding of the Wing Commander ‘have you ever had syphilis?’ and revelling at the Wing Commander’s uncomfortable silence.

This is just so Top Doctor, I witnessed this sort of thing constantly when I worked in medical research. There’s Dannie, terrified of catching a dose himself and being very, very careful because he knows exactly what the consequences will be if he does – ‘ooh Dannie Abse has the clap’, the topic of ribaldry and shaming – so he really maxes out when he guesses that someone of whom he is not very fond is hiding the yellow star of syphilis. The Wing Commander should have said ‘yes I have, so what and I’ll remind you that your job is to treat people not to pass judgement’.

There was a very unpopular consultant’s wife at St George’s who was indeed the most ridiculous snotty old cow, but no-one ever actually challenged her over her rudeness and vacuous snobbery. No, they found out from their colleagues that she’d had surgery for a uterine prolapse and pissed themselves laughing.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful!

Very often they are not, they are narrow-minded and spiteful and have the mentality of the 18 year old medical students that they once were. There often isn’t much evolution evident.

When Dannie was in middle age he knew that kids in care in north Wales were contracting syphilis, because his brother’s acquaintances were infecting them. Dannie also knew that catching syphilis is not always linked to massive promiscuity, obviously one’s risk escalates if one conducts business like Danny or Leo, but anyone at all can catch syphilis from one sexual encounter with one infected person.

Methinks the Abse Protesteth Too Much:

  • Derek at the men's health clinic - The Catherine Tate Show ...
  • ‘How Very Dare You. Just because my surname is Abse you think that I’m facilitating a pan-European paedophile gang. How Very Very Dare You. I’ve been a Top Doctor since my brother put my name down for Westminster Medical School when I was 13 and my dad owns the little cinema in Newport that George Thomas likes to visit and just because my brother is a crooked lawyer who is concealing Dafydd’s crimes and is a friend of Greville Janner and you think that… I’ve never been so insulted in all my life. I’m leaving. And anyway it’s time for my penicillin. FOR MY TOOTH ABSCESS’.
Dannie Abse

CBE FRSL

Dannie Abse.jpg

As someone who had knowledge of the symptoms of syphilis which remained untreated, Dannie Abse will have realised that Bertrand Russell almost certainly had it.

After taking sadistic pleasure in making senior officers believe that Dannie was never at risk of catching syphilis himself, that had only happened to them, Dannie was appointed Medical Officer directly responsible to Air Vice Marshal Sir Aubrey Rumball.

The Royal College of Physicians ‘Lives Of The Fellows’ Online tells of Sir Aubrey:

Campion Aubrey Rumball was the third and youngest child of Frederick William Rumball, an engineer who headed the family business, and Jane (née Watson).

As a child his curiosity was boundless, encompassing all forms of engineering, chemistry and biology. He was at Dulwich College and had little interest in orthodox sporting activities though later in life he enjoyed and did well at tennis and squash. His inventiveness showed itself very early on. Examinations were never a difficulty for him. From Dulwich he went to Guy’s, qualifying first in Dentistry in 1926 and in Medicine with the Conjoint diploma in 1930. After house appointments at Guy’s he was commissioned in the medical branch of the RAF in 1932. He soon found himself serving in the Middle East and developed an interest in tropical medicine which led to his taking the diploma in 1937. Joining the RAF was a deliberate act for him; he foresaw conflict in Europe and perhaps elsewhere, and wished to be poised to give professional help. He soon became aware of the need for training and experience in psychological medicine to enable an individual to care effectively for aircrew and assist them with their problems. This led to a period of study at the Maudsley Hospital and the acquisition of the DPM.

So Sir Aubrey was one of those who knew that the Maudsley as well as the rest of the psychiatric establishment were concealing the organised abuse of children and vulnerable people. The Maudsley and its network protected Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring for their entire careers. Sir Aubrey was a very powerful figure in that network and he didn’t die until 1975…

With this background and his own personal qualities and dedicated application to this work, he was well equipped to play his part when hostilities broke out. His first wartime posting was to RAF Hospital, Matlock (designed to be an Aircrew Psychiatric Rehabilitation Centre) and then in May 1940 as officer-in-charge of the Medical Division and Neuropsychiatrist at No. 2 Mobile Field Hospital with the Advanced Air Striking Force in France.

On the fall of France, as ‘Officer-in-charge of Transport’ he spent eighteen days crossing France with a convoy of vehicles, using all sorts of ruses to avoid capture and escaping eventually through Nantes. He was specialist in Neuropsychiatry at the Officers and Aircrew Hospital, Torquay, and later at Rauceby where his work brought him in close touch with Air Marshal Harris (“Bomber Harris”, later Marshal of the Royal Air Force, Sir Arthur Harris, Bt.). Harris valued Rumball’s work very highly and is said to have remarked that it was “worth more than a bomber squadron to him”.

See previous posts for Bomber Harris’s links to those we know and love.

While at the RAF Hospital Cairo, he published with others a paper on sternal puncture in the diagnosis of malaria, a contribution of great value. His knowledge of tropical diseases stood him in good stead in this posting, and subsequently when his work took him to Aden, Singapore and Cyprus.

Rumball succeeded Sir Alan Rook as Senior Consultant in Medicine on 1st May 1948, the chief physician post in the Service, which he held till his premature retirement in the rank of Air Vice Marshal in 1966. His time as Consultant in Medicine was a very active and productive one, though the overall numbers in the Service were dwindling and National Service came to an end in 1959. Early on he saw the need for the artificial kidney and through his recommendation a unit was set up at Halton, one of the earliest to be established in the country. Among his other achievements was the bringing into being of the unit for investigation and treatment of hypertension at RAF Hospital Cosford.

In the College he was elected MRCP in 1947 and FRCP five years later. He was a member of the panel of examiners for the MRCP. Honours and awards came to him in good measure. He had a mention in despatches in the Palestine Rising in 1933, was made OBE in 1945, CBE in 1954 and KBE in 1964. He was awarded the Lady Cade Medal of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1956 “for outstanding contributions to Medicine in the RAF”. He was honorary physician to HM King George VI from 1948-1952 and to HM Queen Elizabeth II from 1952-1966.

They don’t come posher than Dafydd’s mates!

In 1969 he was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, having given invaluable service as Treasurer for a number of years. At various times he was Consultant Adviser in Medicine to BOAC and BEA, to the Air Line Pilots Association and the Ministry of Transport (Ministry of Civil Aviation) and after retiring from his post as Consultant in Medicine, Honorary Consulting Physician to the Ministry of Defence (Air).

With hair which turned white early in life, he was invariably neatly dressed whether in uniform or in civilian clothes.

So Sir Aubrey didn’t wear ill-fitting George Melly suits and have a liberal smattering of dandruff a la Dafydd.

His patience was well nigh inexhaustible and he was always concerned for the problems of his physicians…

As opposed to showing one jot of concern for patients. Sir Aubrey will no doubt have been on hand with a helpful letter or character reference on every occasion that a serious complaint was made about Dafydd…

and did all he could to fit in their postings conveniently when it was possible. In retirement he lived near Hastings. He was very skilful with his hands and did much construction work in his home himself. His inventiveness was well exemplified by his axis deviation calculator. At Hastings he had a most unfortunate accident falling from a ladder while doing something to the roof. He was unconscious and damaged an ankle and the effects of this injury dogged him for some time. One of the last contributions which he made to the College was the submission of an important collection of evidence to the Committee sitting to consider the cardiovascular fitness of airline pilots.

 

When I was researching Rumball, I came across the obituary of another Top Doctor who had died at approximately the same time as Rumball, in Dec 1975. But this Top Doctor, Pierre Turquet, had been killed in a car crash in France.

Pierre Maurice Turquet (13 December 1913 – 27 December 1975) was born in Wandsworth and worked as a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst at the Tavistock Clinic. Turquet had a special interest in group relations. He was also a British Olympic fencer.

Pierre Turquet was the son of André Turquet (1869-1940), French-born director of the London Diplomatic Service crammer ‘Scoones’, and Gladys, (c.1889-1977), Head of French at Westfield College, London and Professor of French at Bedford College. Pierre was educated at Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he switched from history to science before completing medical training at the London Hospital. By the early 1970s, Dafydd’s gang were conducting their trafficking business on the patch of the London Hospital.

During WW II, Pierre was a Major in the RAMC, helping to develop the War Office Selection Boards. He married Clare Hunter in 1940. Pierre was subsequently seconded to SHAEF and the French War Office. After the war he was Research Psychiatrist at the MRC Social Medicine Research Unit, researching the interpersonal and intrafamily relations of young people with duodenal ulcers, before becoming a consultant psychiatrist at the Tavi in 1952. He worked as a group analyst. From 1968 to 1973 Pierre was Chairman of the Adult Department of the Tavistock. 

Pierre knew the names and details of those involved with Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring and he’ll have had the dirt on everyone in the previous generation as well. Pierre was killed the year that Leo Abse finally saw his rewriting of the legislation re children in care come to fruition. Three months before Pierre was killed, Andrew Newton had made a bungled attempt to kill Norman Scott but had failed, killing Norman’s dog instead. Norman had turned up at a police station explaining that Jeremy Thorpe had hired a hit man to kill him. Newton was arrested on charges of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life…

Jeremy’s lovely young first wife Caroline had been killed in a car crash in 1970, the last time that Jeremy began panicking seriously… See post ‘Only One Died’.

 

Dannie Abse edited a poetry anthology with Howard Sergeant. Dannie knew A. Alvarez, Sylvia Plath and Ann Sexton; there’s irony for you, Alvarez wrote a famous study of suicide and Plath and Sexton were both wimmin poets who suffered at the hands of Top Doctors, found no resolution to their distress by following the advice of the Top Docs and subsequently killed themselves.

Dannie worked at Central Medical Establishment, which was located opposite the Middlesex Hospital, where Gwynne the lobotomist trained. Gwynne was slightly older than Dannie; Gwynne was of a similar vintage to Wilfred, Dannie’s brother, but the Middlesex concealed Gwynne’s crimes until the day that Gwynne pegged out in 1986 and continued to preserve his reputation years after he snuffed it. Dannie will have been popping in and out of the Middlesex to visit his pals in there.

Dannie Abse lived at Ogmore-by-Sea in south Wales for the last part of his life, but for 30 years he lived in north London/Hampstead area in the thick of the Top Doctors, analysts, writers, comedians, luvvies, BBC folk and Labour Party politicians such as Michael Foot. Dannie will have known about the cottaging and outdoor sex on Hampstead Heath which was infamous, in which Michael Foot participated.

‘Syphilis, syphilis, you’ve got syphilis, Dr Abse told me!’ The whole damn lot of them were at high risk of syphilis.

Hampstead was choc full of professional influential people who knew about Dafydd et al and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Bronwen Pugh, the daughter of Welsh judge Sir Alun Pugh, who later married Bill Astor lived at the family home in Hampstead when she was not at boarding school in Dolgellau. Bronwen’s family lived near Donald Winnicott, the famous analyst! When the Profumo Affair erupted, Bronwen was ousted from polite aristocratic society and denounced as a Welsh slapper who had set out to bag a rich man (see previous posts). So if Bronwen was so unsavoury, why were Sir Alun and his wife invited to Buck House in 1959?

Dannie was in the midst of them throughout it all and Dannie was a leading light in the London Welsh community…

 

 

When Dannie first went to London as a student, he lived in Wandsworth, but only for a short time. If the networker Dannie didn’t know then that Wandsworth was a centre of organised abuse, he’ll have found out at a later stage and he’ll certainly have known by the time that Professor Oliver Brooke of St George’s was busy there by the 1970s, along with Cynthia Payne down the road at Streatham (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’). Dafydd’s mate John Tilley, the Wandsworth Councillor and Council leader who served as the Labour MP for Lambeth Central, DATES, arrived in Wandsworth in the mid-1960s to begin organising on behalf of Dafydd’s gang (see post ‘Lord Snooty The Third). Tilley knew Leo Abse.

After his brief stay in Wandsworth, Dannie moved into London University students’ accommodation at Swiss Cottage, where he lived for the next few years as he frantically cultivated the company of the grander and more famous down the road in Hampstead. After Dannie married, he lived in Belsize Park/Highgate, which is where Graham Chapman lived for years along with his gay partner and John Tomiczek. John was a 14 year old boy in care from Liverpool who had run away when zany Python Graham met him and took him in, although Graham told everyone that John was 17. On paper Graham spoke about his fatherly feelings towards John but people who knew Graham maintained that no, the attraction wasn’t fatherly. Chapman had been picking up underaged boys for sex for years and it was this that was the cause of all those references to Graham being ‘outrageous’ and upfront re being gay. Chapman was a Top Doctor who trained at Bart’s and openly admitted that he exploited this when he was interviewed by the police re his relationship with John. Chapman was an alcoholic who allowed John to drink as much as he liked and John too developed an alcohol problem. John died in 1992. See previous posts.

Graham Chapman died in 1989. After he died, a private memorial service was held at Bart’s, attended by the other Pythons. Including John Cleese, who has taken a keen interest in psychoanalysis for years and is a personal friend of many of the London analysts, including those with links to St George’s Hospital Medical School. See previous posts. The John Cleese who was a fellow traveller of Dr Death’s in the SDP…

Graham Chapman was friendly with David Kirke, a twat of the highest order who was a member of the Dangerous Sports Club – who later went to prison for swindling – and they both knew someone known to me in Somerset who found himself in the possession of a great deal of money in the late 1980s/early 1990s when Dafydd and the gang were in pursuit of my friends and I. See previous posts eg. ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’. Dannie’s circle would have extra cause to worry because by then Patient F had told me much that he remembered from his youth in the 1960s and 70s among rock stars, hippies and artists in Surrey and London. David Hockney! Francis Bacon! Hendrix! Brian Jones! See previous posts.

He’s Sir Mick. His children went to Eton and Mick et al now mix with the best:

Mick Jagger Knighted - Rolling Stone

 

Throughout the 1980s and 90s there was an Empowered Service User, R, in Bethesda who was half starving and half destitute who used to tell us all that she had previously been a groupie who had sex with Mick Jagger. Gwynedd Social Services told concerned citizens who telephoned them desperately worried that one day R would be found dead that R the Empowered Service User was a nuisance and that they couldn’t be bothered with her. I watched R admitted to Ysbyty Gwynedd and then cheerily sent on her way when she very obviously couldn’t look after herself and was homeless anyway. F rang Bethesda Surgery when he witnessed R in distress in Bethesda High Street throwing herself in front of cars. Bethesda Surgery responded with ‘yes we know all about her’. R was left to carry on chucking herself in front of cars.

Wiki estimates Mick’s wealth as $360 million. Translated into Bethesda currency, that is a great deal of money. Can you spare a few pence for R Mick, that is if she is still alive? The social workers who worked for your fellow rocker Gruff Rhys’s dad Ioan Bowen Rees and were paid to look after R treated her appallingly. It was observed that it was as if they were waiting for her to be found dead. Along with all the others. All the others who talked about having sex with famous people. Since when has being a nuisance and talking about one’s ‘delusions’ that one was forced by people known to Dafydd into having sex with famous people been deserving of a death sentence?

R was not called as a witness to the Waterhouse Inquiry. If the rest of us barely knew that it was happening, R definitely won’t have known. That Inquiry took place in Flintshire while the key witnesses sat in the Hergest Unit raising complaint after complaint about the abuse of them and their friends by Gwynedd Social Services and the Top Doctors, only to be repeatedly arrested for ‘harassing’ the thugs who ran the VIP paedophile ring which Ronnie Waterhouse assured everyone did not exist…

Dannie later moved from Belize Park to Golders Green, where his next door neighbour was Bob Monkhouse! Dannie made sure that everyone knew that he lived next door to Bob Monkhouse. The slimeball Bob Monkhouse who had a long-running affair with Diana Dors who was part of ‘gangland culture’ a la Babs Windsor ie. the moll of the sort of gangsters who caused such grief in north Wales. One of the many things that I and other targets of the gang did for light entertainment was to write to Esther’s ‘Hearts Of Gold’ TV programme and ask if Dafydd could appear on ‘Bob’s Full House’ with some patients. We pretended that the letter was from Dafydd’s mole, the Bitch of Bryn Golau, Sister Janice Davies, who told lies about the patients to the police as ordered by Dafydd. Imagine my surprise when I received copies of my medical records years later and there was a copy of our ‘Hearts Of Gold’ application in there. See previous posts.

Ah well Jimmy Savile visited Bryn Estyn and witnessed the sexual abuse of boys there and he also dropped into Ashworth Hospital which was run by Dafydd’s mates whenever he felt like it.

I wrote to Esther supplying her with details of Dafydd and Denbigh before we entered Dafydd for ‘Hearts Of Gold’. I wrote to Esther when she launched her Mental Health Campaign. I did not receive a reply. See post ‘The Compassion Centre’.

I wrote to Marjorie Wallace as well, the ‘mental health campaigner’ who in the late 1980s launched SANE, a charidee dedicated to stopping the closure of asylums. I wrote to Marjorie to tell her that her support for asylums was misguided and dangerous and I gave her details of Dafydd’s crimes. Marjorie did not reply. I had no idea at the time that Marjorie was a friend of Dafydd’s gang, that she was married to a Top Doctor, was shagging numerous paedophiles’ friends on the side and that she only launched SANE to save Dafydd’s bacon as the police at the time were closing in on the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See post ‘One Dangerous Fucker’. Marjorie later hit the jackpot when she had an affair with Ma’am Darling’s ex, Lord Snowdon, the bisexual drug user and client of rent boys who was from a high profile Welsh family containing Top Doctors and lawyers (see previous posts).

Honest police who did move in but who were screwed by establishment corruption: Next time that you almost make it but are faced with a backlash from the gwerin, just contact Brown and I. As two key witnesses who would have cheerfully kicked that lot to death, we would have been delighted to have assisted your investigation. It makes more sense than not warning us that we have been targeted by a gang of killers and repeatedly sending me back into their embrace when Brown and I are continually saying that we really don’t like what is going on and that we’re sure that something terrible is behind it all. You could also stop the gangsters giving people known to me huge quantities of money while I am pushed into destitution. Thanks Police! You know for next time now. Oh but there can’t be a next time, they’ve all died in comfort…

Ah the doctors they were wonderful! And Mrs Mills’ daughter is Chairman of the Parole Board! Bechod!!

 

Dannie’s circle of friends became ever wider. His autobiography mentions that he was pals with Peter Vansittart, the historical novelist who works include ‘Voices From The Great War’ and ‘Voices From the Revolution’ and John Watkins from the LSE.

By the time that Dannie was working as a Nice Young Doctor who was far more interested in making friends with Famous Arty People than doctoring, his sister Huldah was living in New York and his brother Wilfred had also emigrated to the US. Leo was an MP.

A gang of sodding traffickers, not just in this country but around the world, as Nicholas Parsons always stresses re the listeners of ‘Just A Minute’. Which for years starred Clement Freud, a Liberal Party Political Molester and Kenneth Williams who was seriously weird as well.

Now Clement, can you talk for one minute on the subject of ‘How Very Dare You, Of Course There Is No Wrongdoing In High Places, I’ll Sue If You Print A Word..’

Now here’s an interesting extract from David Abse’s biography:

[David’s mum] moved to London as a young woman where she met David’s dad, Dannie. After bringing up three kids, she became a renowned art historian. David’s maternal grandfather (Jack Mercer) had a profound effect on David’s life: He worked as a shop steward for years in the Pilkingtons’ glassworks in St Helens,

Pilkington’s at St Helen’s had strong links with Dafydd’s gang but Pilkington’s subsidiary at St Asaph in north Wales was almost an integral part of Dafydd’s north Wales branch. See previous posts.

but after he retired he went to art school every day for 30 years. He died over 20 years ago, aged 99, still a communist, determined not to get a telegram from the queen.

Despite David’s father’s determination that David should get a “proper job”, David went to Art school in Wolverhampton, and worked for many years in the voluntary sector in the UK – including several years as a union representative, and more years as CEO of Islington Voluntary Actiion Council (IVAC).

Oh dear God, the Abses got together with Margaret ‘Little Nell’ Hodge et al…

After leaving IVAC in 2005 David set up a freelance consultancy business, Toosh, that would still be thriving if not for the bizarre decision of the UK populace to put the Tories in charge of ruining the country.

Do you think that might have had something to do with the nation having had a bellyful of Miranda David? Furthermore, if your dad and his family/mates/whole profession had not been concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring the Tory Party would have imploded in the early 1980s. But then your Uncle Leo would have probably gone to prison along with many others. Including Little Nell.

Throughout these years David continued drawing and painting part time. Six years ago David moved to France, and returned to painting, drawing and printmaking full time.

David didn’t suffer too badly under the yoke of Lord Snooty then.

Plus a bit of writing.: David writes occasionally for L’Artiste and has a regular column in The Hérault Times – and the Aude Times too. He also writes a fascinating blog.

David now lives with his family and cats and dog in a small house in the beautiful village of Bize-Minervois in the Aude. He still thinks of himself as half English, half Welsh, half Jewish and as a Londoner too.

Who happens to live in France.

It is no surprise then that many of David’s paintings focus on issues of identity. Amazingly, David’s son Marley is a maths whizz.

 

The ever-talented Dr Dannie also worked as a medical journalist and wrote in this capacity for the Express. One of Dannie’s scoops was his interview with Prof Paul Niehans and Dr Ana Aslan, for which he travelled to the Eastern Bloc. Niehans and Aslan had claimed to have developed a ‘rejuvenating treatment’ which involved injecting ineffective solutions into people’s faces. Dannie exposed the scoundrels and marvelled at the list of the Rich n Famous – including European Royalty – who had fallen for the scam. At no point in his 91 years, did Dannie Abse ever speak out about the research fraud that he knew so many of his colleagues were conducting, let alone about Dafydd’s ‘sex therapy clinics’ which were a cover for the activities of the sex abuse gang which Dannie’s brother Leo was facilitating.

Dannie was involved with the writers’ organisation PEN and was one of the movers n shakers behind the Poetry and Jazz concerts that were held throughout the 1960s. Wendy Savage the Top Doctor who was famously involved in a civil war with her colleagues at the London Hospital in the 1980s was married to a jazz musician. Wendy knew about Dafydd’s gang and she was friends with Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain who was friends with Ollie Brooke and colluding with the gang in south London as well as with Dafydd’s gang. Wendy was a supporter of the Labour Party and a Feminist. So one wonders why she kept quiet about north Wales, including the unlawful refusal of the Top Docs to provide women with NHS abortions throughout the 1970s and 80s, yet referring any woman who had the dosh to a butcher in Chester who was putting lives at risk and ordering women without money to stay in Denbigh for an ‘assessment’ by Dafydd? See previous posts. Wendy Savage sat on the GMC for years. The years that the GMC failed to take action against Dafydd in the face of so many complaints, the GMC which forged documents to discredit complainants…

 

Anyone remember George Melly, who like Graham Chapman was such a card, ooh he’s honest about his bisexuality you know? In fact Graham Chapman came out as gay on George Melly’s TV show in 1972. George Melly made comments in public regarding his enthusiasm for very young boys and when he stayed in Bangor after doing a turn at Theatre Gwynedd, George Melly offered an underaged boy money in return for sex. How did I know? Because the boy concerned told F, who told me as well as a lot of other people, because F was of the opinion that George Melly should be asked a few questions about that incident. No wonder F encountered such difficulties at the hands of Dafydd and the gwerin. The boy in question was the son of a prison officer whom he hated. He maintained that his father was violent and corrupt and when the boy was a young man he developed a serious drug problem. He was Referred to Dafydd. Of course he was. By the time that this man was in his 30s he was unpleasant by anyone’s standards. F used to avoid him and tell me to avoid him. So we did, but it was another example of a witness who developed such problems that he was isolated and eventually not believed…

I am seriously impressed at the number of witnesses to Dafydd’s wrongdoing who developed drug problems, clocked up criminal records and who encountered friends and partners who gave them endless grief. There are also more than would be expected who found themselves approached by potential suitors with STIs. Nasty STIs as well, HIV and Hep B. How on earth was it happening Dafydd???

‘This service is totally confidential.’

Oh no it isn’t, there is no confidentiality at all in the NHS and social services in north Wales, absolutely none.

 

Dannie knew Jeremy Robson and Boris Pasternak’s sister Lydia Slater. He knew Spike Milligan and Stevie Smith and Laurie Lee, the list of Dannie’s Famous Friends was endless…

In terms of Dannie’s pals who were in the theatre, we should remember that Ronnie Waterhouse had many friends who were luvvies and that the Garrick, one of the hubs of corruption which concealed Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring, was particularly popular with lawyers, judges and luvvies. Ronnie was a member of the Garrick, as was dear old Robin Day and Sir William Mars-Jones and many, many more…See previous posts.

Dannie Abse was a passionate supporter of Cardiff City F.C. He first went to watch them play in 1934 and many of his writings refer to his experiences watching and lifelong love of the team known as “The Bluebirds”. Another finger in another PIE…

Dannie Abse won the Welsh Arts Council Award in both 1971 and 1987 and the Cholmondeley Award in 1985. He was a Fellow of The Royal Society of Literature from 1983. In a foreword to Collected Poems 1948–1976, Abse noted that his poems are increasingly “rooted in actual experience,” both domestic and professional and many display a reconciliation between Jewish and Welsh themes and traditions. While he lived in Hampstead and assisted a pan-European trafficking gang.

For several years Dannie wrote a column for the ‘Hampstead and Highgate Express’. These articles were subsequently published in book form.

In 2005, Dannie’s wife Joan was killed in a car accident, while Dannie suffered a broken rib. Joan went the way of so many who could names names then. Dannie and Leo didn’t die in car crashes or unexpectedly peg out while in the care of the Top Doctors. Dannie lived to 91 years and Leo and Wilfred both hit 90.

Dafydd and Lucille are still going. Unless they’ve pegged out and no-one’s told me.

The Presence’, Dannie’s memoir of the year after his wife died, was published in 2007; it won the 2008 Wales Book Of The Year Award. Bechod!

‘The Presence’ was later dramatised for BBC Radio 4. I expect that Libby Purves reviewed it. And it was probably featured on ‘A Good Read’. Give it a few years and Dannie Abse will be the subject of ‘In Our Time’ with Melvyn Bragg, the MIND ambassador…

Dannie was awarded the Roland Mathias prize for Running Late.

In 2009 Dannie received the Wilfred Owen Poetry Award. Today We Have The Naming of (yet more) Parts, including Dannie Abse. Dannie was a judge for the inaugural 2010 Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine, the ironies of which I blogged about in post ‘The Great Stink’. I didn’t realise when I wrote that post that one of the judges was Mr Big, although I should have predicted it. If Harold Shipman wasn’t six foot under he would be presenting Dannie with his award at the Glittering Ceremony with a Royal guest.

Dannie Abse died on 28 September 2014. ‘Good riddance to bad rubbish’ as F always maintained should be engraved upon Dafydd’s tombstone.

 

There was of course yet another Abse brother whom I have not yet discussed in detail, Wilfred, the man who told Dannie to become a Top Doctor and qualify at Westminster Medical School because ‘Westminster is the best medical school in the world’. Ah the Abses were committed socialists who were right behind Nye! Wilfred, who dispensed crucial advice re syphilis so that the rest of the clan could point at other people saying ‘neh neh neh, you’ve got the pox’…

‘Ewe know some of those kids in the homes were wild oooh ewe know there was one there who had VD at 15, ooh Dr DA was good to them ewe know, no-one else would have had time for them…’

 

David Wilfred Abse (15 March 1915 – 4 November 2005) was born in Cardiff. He did of course go to Westminster Medical School. During and after WW II, Wilfred served in the RAMC. God help anyone who had caught a dose. In 1941, Wilfred participated in the examination of the Rudolf Hess – oh the ironies just never stop – who had been captured in Scotland during an unsuccessful peace mission. Wilfred was later stationed in India, eventually rising to the rank of Major.

After Westminster, Wilfred became a psychoanalyst. Dannie’s book mentions that Wilfred worked at Pen-y-Fal Hospital at Abergavenny. Pen-y-Fal was the asylum at Abergavenny and like all the asylums at the time, Pen-y-Fal contained a good many patients who had pissed off the big wigs as well as patients who for various reasons could not look after themselves. Dannie describes visiting Wilfred at Pen-y-Fal with their mum – like many asylum docs at the time Wilfred lived on site – and Mrs A being horrified at the language used by many of the patients and marvelling that her Wilfred could ever tolerate being among such animals. I’ve got news for Mrs A. A great deal of swearing does go among Empowered Service Users, but the Top Docs and Angels swear like troopers as well, but not in front of people like Mrs Abse.  Empowered Service Users also get to the stage where They Don’t Give A Stuff after years of complaining through the appropriate channels about being abused and assaulted, only to see their complaints investigated by the friends of those of whom they have complained and dismissed as lies of the delusions of a lunatic. There is also a variant of Empowered Service User who Takes The Piss. I was one of them and I was friends with others. One such person was Peter Webb in Denbigh. Like the rest of us, Peter had been illegally imprisoned after a previous stint of being illegally imprisoned. Peter was a good friend to me in Denbigh and reassured me that ‘it is too late for crying’, we needed to torment these bastards. So we did.

Peter rang the police from the only patients’ pay phone and told them that we were being abused and were illegally imprisoned. The police rang the Angels who stormed the room with the phone in it – Peter and I were still in there playing dominos – and they threw us out and locked the room. By that time, another patient, Stephen, had found some loose tablets lying around on the floor in the phone room, so Stephen took the tablets.

‘There are the strictest precautions taken at all times with medication.’

No there aren’t, when F was in Denbigh he purchased class A drugs from a patient who had been given the drugs by Dafydd. F was flogged the drugs in full view of the Angels.

So there we were on the loose in the day room. Peter swore mildly and the Charge Nurse Mike Williams told Peter that he wouldn’t tolerate bad language. While Mike assisted a gang of paedophiles in illegally imprisoning their victims. Then some visitors of a highly offensive petit bourgeois patient arrived and Peter heard them remark that he looked like a tramp. Of course he did, Peter had been illegally imprisoned for three weeks and had not been offered a change of clothes. I witnessed Peter repeatedly ask the Angels if he could have a clean shirt and they simply replied that they didn’t have any spare clothes. So Peter walked up to the petit bourgeois visitors and said to them very politely ‘Why don’t you all fuck off?’

Mike Williams attacked Peter and dragged him into the male dorms, locking him in there. The petit bourgeois ones looked on, marvelling at the Appalling Behaviour Of The Loonies. The petit bourgeois woman was only in Denbigh for 36 hours or so, none of us knew who she was but she was vile. She hurled abuse at us all and pointed at Stephen and screamed at an Angel ‘you needn’t think that I’m staying in here with people like THAT’. So I said to the petit bourgeois woman ‘you’re very petit bourgeois aren’t you?’. She screamed at me that I was a bitch and a slut no less and another patient said to me ‘ooh are you a Marxist?’ Stephen then walked up to the petit bourgeois woman with a packet of cigarettes and said ‘do you want a fag luv?’

The petit bourgeois woman kept telling people that she was a ‘personal friend of Dr Dafydd Alun Jones’s former wife’ and I sat there marvelling that anyone would ever boast of any such link with Dafydd. Which ex-wife I have no idea, Dafydd has been divorced four times so there are quite a few of his ex-wives cluttering up north Wales. Being a friend of Dafydd’s ex-wife was obviously useful in north Wales though, because the petit bourgeois woman was released very quickly with Angels toadying to her and ignoring the poisonous insults and threats to which she was subjecting the rest of us.

 

Wilfred Abse was just a few years older than Gwynne the lobotomist and Wilfred knew Gwynne and Dafydd. Wilfred knew about the trafficking ring and was fully on board with it and there will have been victims of the gang languishing in Pen-y-Fal Hospital. No wonder they were swearing. I am wondering if Rudolf Abse and his cinema were already involved up to their necks with organised abuse in south Wales which was why George Thomas was so nice to the Abse boys and their circle of Jewish friends when he taught them. Dannie tells stories of family life when they were young and of his parents saying ‘Leo will be Prime Minister one day’. All families of course have such memories but the Abses took themselves very seriously and were rapacious with it. Wilfred ordered Dannie to study medicine and then arranged a medical school place for Dannie years in advance; when Dannie wanted to leave medical school, Leo and dad were livid and pressurised him to stay. Dannie wasn’t just overwhelmed by a sudden whim, he was not interested in medicine or in his patients and he wasn’t any good at it either. He nearly failed most exams but was allowed to pass because in that era, everyone was allowed to pass. Dannie was a luvvie and he liked hanging out with luvvies especially famous ones. But the Abses wanted doctors and lawyers and politicians in their family. Such people are very useful if there is a rapidly expanding trafficking ring and crime syndicate to be serviced.

Wilfred didn’t remain on his home turf with Gwynne and Dafydd for long. Wilfred the Psychoanalyst hit the big time when he emigrated to the US to become Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Wilfred spent the greater part of his career as Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia, 1962-80. Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Wilfred as known for his work in group therapy and hysteria and contributed to the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease.

Wilfred’s work in group analysis was influenced by S.H. Foulkes (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’), who was in London at the same time as Wilfred Abse, along with a wider group of analysts who all used their work to conceal their own wrongdoing and to discredit anyone who raised concerns. It was Brown critiquing this discredited nonsense after I raised concerns about Gwynne that upset the Top Doctors so much. This was Gwynne and Dafydd, even if the theory had not have been discredited – which it most certainly had – those two could hardly have been relied upon to have known how to use it to assist their patients. Talk to honest, thoughtful analysts and they will admit that there is and has been a very big problem with analysts abusing and exploiting their patients and also their trainees. Gwynne, Dafydd and the Abses ran a trafficking ring and that was their only interest.

I invite readers to have a laugh at Wilfred’s Great Works:

The diagnosis of hysteria (Williams and Wilkins, Baltimore, 1950); Speech and reason: language disorder in mental disease (John Wright, Bristol, 1971); Clinical notes on group-analytic psychotherapy (University Press of Virginia, Charlottesille, 1974); Marital & sexual counselling in medical practice, edited by D. Wilfred Abse, Ethel M. Nash, Lois M.R. Louden (Harper & Row, Medical Dept., Hagerstown, 2nd edition, 1974); Hysteria and Related Mental Disorders : an approach to psychological medicine (Wright, Bristol, 1987).

Ooh Dr Wilfred, my wandering womb is playing up, what do you suggest?? Sex with Dafydd probably, knowing that lot.

I look forward to hearing Hillary or Michelle on the ‘Today’ programme next week.

Get out of this one then Cherie.

As Cerys Matthews, the daughter of a Top Doctor who was In On All Of It, sung in the midst of the huge co-ordinated attempt to eclipse the Waterhouse Inquiry with Patriotic Welsh Rock (see post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’), ‘Everyday when I wake up I thank the Lord I’m Welsh’. I carried on hanging out with Welsh people long after Cerys had pissed off to the US. Along with so many others who were maxing out on their Welshness when they lived in Hampstead or America… Er, anywhere other than Bethesda Cerys and Gruff??? Because Gruff’s dad has destroyed the place… Gruff’s dad died in 1999, just before the Waterhouse Report was published. Bethesda still hasn’t recovered from Ioan Bowen Rees and the Top Doctors.

Raising a Flag Over the Reichstag’, by Yevgeny Khaldei.

Yes, There Is Still Green Paint On The Renault…

While watching vintage TV clips of ‘Have I Got News For You’ yesterday to remind me of what was headline news and the subject of media comment at the various different times when Dafydd et al feared exposure and called in reinforcements, I watched the Ghost Of Labour’s Wit Past, the late Tony Banks. During his years in politics, Tony Banks was lauded as a highly entertaining fun guy with the best one liners in the Commons. In terms of his public performance, this was true. Yet Tony Banks knew about some truly terrible matters re the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and not only did he remain absolutely silent about it all, he provided useful distractions and a supply of weapons to help out Dafydd and the gang at crucial moments.

Anthony Louis Banks, Baron Stratford (8 April 1942 – 8 January 2006) was the Labour MP for Newham North West, 1983-97 and West Ham, 1997-2005. He served as Minister for Sport, 1997-99.

Children in the care of Newham Borough Council were among those sent to kids’ homes in north Wales and then trafficked back down to London as sex workers. There were complaints about the abuse of kids from Newham but no-one took any notice and the supply of children to Dafydd’s gang continued. Another person who knew about the business arrangement between Newham and Dafydd’s gang in north Wales was the Labour politician and Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales (see post ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’).

 

Tony Banks was born at the Jubilee Maternity Hospital, Belfast, the only son of a sergeant in the Royal Army Service Corps. The family returned to England after the birth and Banks grew up in Brixton and Tooting. He was educated in London at St. John’s School, Brixton, Tenison’s School in Kennington, the University of York and the LSE.

There were long-standing paedophile gangs operating in Lambeth – Brixton is in the Borough of Lambeth – and in the Borough of Wandsworth, which covers the area of Tooting and it was on the back of these gangs that Dafydd, John Allen et al built their business which involved the industrial scale abuse and trafficking of children from the late 1960s onward. John Tilley, the Labour MP for Lambeth Central, 1978-83, arrived in south London in the mid-1960s, made links with those in local authorities, became a Wandsworth Councillor in 1971 and subsequently Leader of Wandsworth Council and throughout it all drummed up trade for Dafydd’s gang. Once in the Commons, Tilley continued to bat for Dafydd et al via Tilley’s interests in alcohol and drug abuse and demands that there should be more Gov’t funding for Top Doctors specialising in such matters. See post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’.

When Harold Wilson’s Gov’t planned the building of a new flagship medical school/teaching hospital in London under the auspices of ‘taking medical expertise into the community where the people were’, the project chosen was to relocate St George’s Hospital at Hyde Park Corner, Knightsbridge, to a splendid new building in Tooting. The staff at St George’s, who could hardly be bettered for social snobbery, had no interest at all in being based on the mean streets of Tooting, but Wilson’s and then Callaghan’s Gov’t pushed ahead with the relocation which was complete by the early 1980s. Thus St George’s of Knightsbridge, a hospital staffed by Top Doctors who saw their job as tending to the needs of the very privileged and who often had many close connections to the very privileged themselves and which had developed a Dept of Psychiatry led and staffed by a small group of truly malignant Top Doctors who consistently discredited the victims of privileged criminals, was plonked on the territory of Wandsworth, which had a well-developed paedophile/trafficking gang. The prime mover and shaker behind the merger of the trafficking gang of Wandworth and the elitist criminals’ friends of St George’s was Sir Paul Storey. A very convenient arrangement for people wanting to conceal the Westminster Paedophile Ring, such as Harold Wilson and Jim Callaghan who knew what a big vote puller in south Wales the child molester George Thomas was and who also had others such as Greville Janner to consider. See post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’.

Lest anyone who hasn’t read all my previous blog posts thinks that I’m in the realms of an over-developed conspiracy theory here, just think of the following St George’s highlights:

When Norman Scott became so distressed at the activities of Jeremy Thorpe that Norman had a breakdown, Jeremy’s circle as an act of kindness assisted Norman by finding him help from Desmond Curran, the man who established the Psychiatry Dept at St George’s and who, along with his colleagues, was facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring.

After Lord Lucan murdered his children’s nanny and tried to kill his wife, Lady Lucan was taken to St George’s Hospital where, despite having head injuries, she was treated as though she was mad; such was the chaos and delay in Top Doctors and others waking up to what Lord Lucan had done that Lucan disappeared and almost certainly fled the UK, assisted by others. Lady Lucan had previous with regard to being nuts: as Lord Lucan gambled away the family fortune and subjected Lady Lucan to domestic violence and extreme emotional abuse, he paid for Top Doctors to help his insane wife. When his insane wife’s condition did not improve, Lord Lucan left his insane wife and paid Top Doctors for their opinion that his children should not be allowed to live with his wife, what with her being insane. The judge at the custody hearing took a rather dim view of Lord Lucan’s occupation being that of a ‘professional gambler’ and ordered that the children should live with the insane Lady Lucan, as long as she employed a nanny to help her. Nannies didn’t stay long at lady Lucan’s household and Lady Lucan alleged that her husband and his associates were harassing and manipulating them. One nanny with whom Lady Lucan did get on with well was Sandra Rivett. Who was murdered by Lord Lucan. After Lord Lucan disappeared, Lady Lucan lost custody of her children to one of Lord Lucan’s friends on the grounds that she was insane. Lady Lucan always maintained that the Top Doctors who ‘looked after’ her drugged her into oblivion, lied to and about her and were working for the benefit of her husband, not her. Because the evidence given by the Top Doctors re Lady Lucan was with regard to divorce and custody hearings, I have not been able to access details of the evidence or the names of the Top Docs involved, but I do know that Lady Lucan was treated by Top Docs at The Priory and at St George’s. The names and signatures of Top Docs working at The Priory and St George’s, along with details of their criminal conspiracy with Dafydd et al in north Wales to have me declared ‘extremely dangerous’ and banged up without trial, are on documents in my possession. Some of those named were working at St George’s when Lady Lucan was encountering serious problems.

I was told yesterday that Dafydd was linked to the Lucan case. I cannot say that I am entirely surprised; by the time that Sandra Rivett was found dead, Dafydd had built up a well-established reputation in England as well as in Wales as being a Top Doctor who would do anything, anything at all, if one paid him enough. I’d be interested to know who paid Dafydd and how much with regard to what he did – and tried to do – to me, because Dafydd would never have bothered to do all that in return for his NHS salary.

John Bingham, 7th Earl of Lucan

The Director of Education for Wandsworth Borough Council, Donald Naismith, was an active paedophile who was abusing kids in care (see previous posts).

Professor Oliver Brooke, a key player in a pan-European paedophile ring who was imprisoned for the possession of child porn in Dec 1986, was the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s and had been working at St George’s for some 10  years before he was jailed. See previous posts eg. ‘Oliver!’

Cynthia Payne’s celebrity brothel at Ambleside Avenue – which when it was raided by the police in 1978 famously contained 58 men including a peer of the realm, an MP, solicitors, company directors and a number of vicars within busy at a sex party – was in Streatham, just down the road from St George’s Hospital Medical School. There were Top Doctors from St George’s present at the party when Cynthia’s brothel was raided, but that received no publicity at all. See post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’.

 

Tony Banks remained a London-based politician throughout his entire career. There was no way that he did not hear about Madam Cyn’s brothel and about the imprisonment of Ollie Brooke; Banks knew the full horror story behind those supposedly isolated, unconnected incidents. A massive trafficking ring involving some of the most privileged people in the UK targeting some of the most disadvantaged, facilitated by Top Doctors in collaboration with the Social Services…

 

Tony Banks worked as an Assistant General Secretary for the Association of Broadcasting Staff union, which represented staff in the BBC and other broadcasting organisations. Jimmy Savile/Stuart Hall/Rolf anyone? There were many more at the BBC, including a number of managers and executives who’s names were not familiar to most viewers; Savile wasn’t allowed to clutter up the BBC for decades by accident. Everyone who worked at the BBC knew at least something about it even if they weren’t part of the shagfest. The Association of Broadcasting Staff later merged with other unions to form BECTU (Broadcasting, Entertainment, Cinematograph and Theatre Union). For several years Banks was responsible for freelances.

Sexual exploitation which often constituted frank sexual abuse was/is rampant in the entertainment/luvvies business, absolutely rampant. It was so rampant that if one was felt to be sufficiently distant from the shenanigans that one could possibly turn up as a whistleblower one day, one was frozen out, as my two friends who worked in the media in the 1980s were. One of my friends was offered a ‘wonderful opportunity’ in Zimbabwe, refused to shag a horrible old movie director and found herself out of a job days later; when she returned to the UK she was unlawfully dismissed from her job with the Royal Television Society for wanting to make a film about north Wales and then her husband was forced out of the BBC after he refused to accept a bribe. My friends committed so many crimes in terms of not behaving like turds that I’m still not sure how much of the aggro that they received in their media careers was because of their friendship with me and how much was because they were not corrupt and exploitative.

Even the most right-on and seemingly pleasant, genuine celebs/luvvies, including those working-class radicals in Mike Leigh’s circle, knew about the sexploitation and the procuring of underaged kids by Savile, Dafydd’s gang and others.

Miranda’s father-in-law:

Tony Booth: 'Can Miliband Win? In Your F***ing Dreams'

 

Not everyone was in entertainment/the world of luvvieinvolved in actively abusing those youngsters but they knew what was happening and have kept quiet ever since, in the way that the whole BBC loathed Savile but remained schtum. The freelancers represented by union rep Tony Banks would have been in particularly vulnerable positions.

 

Tony Banks unsuccessfully stood for the Liberal Party in the 1964 first elections to the new London Boroughs. He later joined the Labour Party, and during the 1970s and 1980s was a prominent Labour member of the GLC, representing Hammersmith, 1970–1977 and Tooting, 1981–1986. Banks was Chairman of the GLC from 1985 until its abolition in 1986.

The whole of the GLC, as well as Red Ken, leader of the GLC, 1981-86, knew about Dafydd’s gang (see previous posts). Red Ken was one of those who signed an Early Day Motion in 1992 opposing the closure of Garth Angharad, a ‘hospital for mentally abnormal criminals’ in Dolgellau (see post ‘More On Those Who Signed That Early Day Motion’). Except that Garth Angharad wasn’t a hospital for mentally abnormal criminals or anyone else, it was an isolated building in Snowdonia that was owned by Paul Hett, a solicitor who was later struck off for embezzling clients’ funds. The mentally abnormal criminals contained within were victims of Dafydd’s gang, who had been rash enough to complain about what had happened to them. Paul Hett owned and managed three schools/children’s homes in north Wales in which children were abused. Even Ronnie Waterhouse couldn’t find anything positive to say about Paul Hett.

Garth Angharad is mentioned in my documentation. A case conference was held there about me – while I was sitting in a London Medical School as a postgrad – by Dr Chris Hunter, of whom I had never heard until I received the documentation relating to all this some three years ago. Dafydd and Tony Francis gave evidence at the case conference, as did Gwynedd social workers and other people whom I had never met. Chris Hunter concluded that I was extremely dangerous and needed to be incarcerated in a high security hospital. Hunter offered to compile a Court report saying this. I was not facing any charges at the time, but soon after the case conference I was arrested on the basis of the perjury of Tony Francis et al. See post ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’.

Chris Hunter was a forensic psychiatrist who worked at Whitchurch Hospital in Cardiff, at the Caswell Clinic in Bridgend and at Ashworth Hospital, Merseyside. Hunter was responsible for Lawrence Ward, the ‘Personality Disorder Unit’ at Ashworth, which was hit by scandal after scandal and, after a patient was battered to death, was the subject of a Public Inquiry, The Fallon Inquiry, in the 1990s, just a few short years after the Committee of Inquiry into Complaints about Ashworth Hospital was Chaired by Louis Blom-Cooper QC, who knew what had been going on at Ashworth but kept quiet. See previous posts.

Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass was a member of the panel for the Fallon Inquiry and it was Bluglass who was tasked with investigating the murder of the patient. To assist him in this, Bluglass employed the services of a senior Angel from the unit of which Bluglass was himself Clinical Director, the Reaside Clinic, Birmingham and a senior Angel from Clwyd Health Authority who was a mate of Dafydd’s. See previous posts eg. ‘Security, Security’. Bluglass had concealed Dafydd’s criminality in 1989 when Bluglass was appointed to investigate my own complaint about Dafydd et al. Part of my complaint was an assault on me by an Angel employed at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, Stephen Rose. The only response that I ever received was the assurance that I was completely mad at the time and that I had misinterpreted events with Rose. Other Angels made statements that Rose acted professionally at all times. When I presented further evidence, Rose was transferred to a job at Park Lane Hospital, which merged with Moss Side to form Ashworth. Where the Angels, who behaved professionally at all times, murdered a patient.

The conclusion of the Fallon Inquiry was that Dangerous Patients had ‘taken over’ Lawrence Ward, were out of control and were telling the Top Doctors and Angels what to do. The solution was a Tougher Regime for Dangerous Nutters. There were indeed things going on in Lawrence Ward that should not have been happening, such as quantities of hard core porn stashed on the ward and at least one child in social services care being taken into the ward ‘to visit paedophiles’, but everyone forgot to mention that Lawrence Ward was established and run by a gang of paedophiles who were working as Top Doctors and Angels. It was admitted that one Angel had been a little bit lax when he was conducted a search of a Dangerous Nutter’s room and during the search sat on the bed, read the porn that was in the Dangerous Nutter’s room and ticked it off on the list of property checked during the search.

Hard core porn and children in the care of Bradford Social Services? Present and correct.

The Fallon Inquiry was the result of an Ashworth patient who escaped abroad, telephoned back to the UK and stated that he would happily hand himself in if it was agreed that there would be an Inquiry into Lawrence Ward, because this man alleged that terrible things were happening there. The patient’s family were the constituents of the Labour MP for Halifax, 1987-2005, Alice Mahon. Mahon went to school in Halifax and then worked in the NHS as a nursing auxiliary for ten years. In 1979, Mahon gained a BA in Social Policy from the University of Bradford and taught Trade Union Studies at Bradford College, 1980-87. Meanwhile, Mahon was a Councillor on Calderdale Council. When the Fallon Inquiry reported, Alice was particularly voluble about the necessity of Security for Dangerous Patients. See previous posts ‘Security, Security’.

Dr Brian Gibbons, the Labour AM for Aberavon, 1999-2011, who served as the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister, 2005-07, moved from his home country of Ireland to Calderdale to train as a GP in 1976. Gibbons colluded with Dafydd and the gang throughout his time as an AM and when I wrote to Gibbons and told him that I had evidence of serious criminal activity in the NHS and social services in north Wales, Gibbons sent me a reply telling me that this correspondence was over.

There was a paedophile/trafficking ring operating in Mahon’s area, with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Mahon has been involved with many left wing causes and Supports The NHS. When Mahon was unable to access an expensive drug for her own non-life threatening condition on the NHS, she took legal action against her local NHS. No getting beaten to death by an Angel for Alice. She’s got the Stop The War marches to go on with Jezza after all.

The escapee from Ashworth made his phone call demanding an inquiry in 1996. In 1996 the man who had previously tried to kill Brown went in search of Brown again. The Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974 was completed in the summer of 1996, but Cherie Booth’s friend and colleague Michael Beloff QC, in his capacity as the legal adviser to Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council and the North Wales Police, ensured that the Report was witheld from everyone, including Councillors, except for lawyers and insurers. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’ Michael Beloff’s dad Lord Max Beloff was a friend of both Thatch and Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council. See previous posts.

 

 

Can Red Ken explain why the leader of the GLC who subsequently became the Labour MP for Brent East, 1987-2001, was so keen to stop the closure of one of Dafydd’s personal prisons in the back end of beyond in Dolgellau???

Ken Livingstone.jpg

Has Red Ken ever even been to Dolgellau? Theresa goes to Dolgellau but that’s because Theresa likes hill walking. When Theresa visits Snowdonia she stays in the Penmaenuchaf Hall Hotel, which is just down the road from what was Garth Angharad. Perhaps all MPs should pay a visit to Garth Angharad and lay a wreath in remembrance of those who died screaming for help upon whom the entire Palace Of Westminster turned their backs. Except for those Members – literally – who were shagging them of course.

‘Well, Clarice… have the lambs stopped screaming?’

Tony Banks was elected Labour MP for Newham North West, after defeating his predecessor, Arthur Lewis, who had been deselected as Labour candidate. Arthur Lewis was educated at Borough Poly and began work as a fitter with the City of London Corporation. Lewis was an official of the National Union of General and Municipal Workers, 1938-48. He signed the first trade union agreement with the catering industry and gained 20,000 new trade union members in the West End London. Lewis was MP for Upton, 1945-50, for West Ham North, 1950-74 and then for Newham West. In 1983, after 38 years as an MP, Lewis was deselected as Labour candidate by his local constituency Labour Party, which he said had become “100 per cent Trotskyist, Militant, Communist and IRA supporters’. By this time Lewis was refusing to attend local party meetings or hold “advice surgeries” for his constituents. The en masse trafficking of kids in care to north Wales from Newham began when Arthur Lewis was in the Commons. He didn’t manage to mention it anymore than the Trotskyite, Militant, Communist and IRA supporters did.

Banks was elected in June 1983. The General Election of 1983 was yet another one where the Labour Party was thrashed but before being thrashed had desperately kept the lid on the criminality in north Wales which was at risk of becoming public because by then Mary Wynch was heading for the Master of the Rolls with her litigation against Dafydd et al. Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass rewrote the Mental Health Act in 1983 to show that Things Had Changed and Dafydd’s other mate William Bingley of MIND wrote the Code Of Practice which accompanied it to make absolutely sure that Things Had Changed and That It Could Never Happen Again. Brown had begun to receive murder threats by June 1983, no-one at UCNW would respond to this and Trishles had moved into our house on Anglesey and was causing havoc; no-one at UCNW would respond to that either, although Trishles was a member of their staff. I now know that Trishles was one of the gifts from the security services to us. See posts ‘He Got On His Bike And Looked For Work’ and ‘A Local Boy Made Good?’.

Dr Death and the Gang of Four were trying their luck by 1983 and Dr Death personally knew some of the Top Docs involved in the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. The molester George Thomas stood down as Speaker of the Commons in June 1983 and Thatch made him a Viscount. People in high places were obviously frantically shifting the furniture about, so the emergence of Tony Banks in the Commons might well have been part of that.

Following a 1995 boundary review, Newham North West was expanded and renamed West Ham for the  1997 General Election. Banks represented that seat until the 2005 General Election when he stood down. Tony Banks hung around until the Waterhouse Report was published and the many loud accusations that it was a huge cover-up had died away.

After Labour’s 1997 election victory Banks was appointed a Minister in the Dept for Culture, Media and Sport, under Secretary of State Chris Smith, MP for Islington South and Finsbury, 1983-2005. Chris Smith was educated at George Watson’s College in Edinburgh and Pembroke College, Cambridge. He attended Harvard and was President of the Cambridge Union Society. Before he was elected to the Commons, Smith worked for a housing charity and became a Councillor in the London Borough of Islington. In 1984, Chris Smith was the first MP to come out as gay and received a standing ovation from the audience to whom he announced this. Then in 2005 Chris Smith told ‘The Sunday Times’ that he has HIV and first knew that he was infected in 1987. There was a paedophile/trafficking gang operating in Islington children’s homes with links to Dafydd’s gang. Chris never mentioned them. However Chris has spoken about being able to live a long life with HIV. But then Chris doesn’t have Dafydd as his Top Doctor.

Chris became Lord Chris Smith in 2005! Which was when things began hotting up at Bangor University and the brother-in-law of Miranda’s policy adviser John McTernan nicked my computer.

 

While he was Minister for Sport, Banks called for foreign players in the English Premiership to become eligible to play for England (“can you imagine seeing Cantona and Giggs swapping the Red of Manchester for the White of England?”). He also caused consternation by suggesting the football teams of the four constituent parts of the UK merge to compete in the Olympic Games, which eventually occurred for the 2012 Olympics.

Among other Ministerial responsibilities of Banks’s were listed buildings and Banks approved controversial additions including the 1930s Three Magpies pub in Birmingham and numerous redundant NHS buildings. He was also responsible for Grade I listing the Severn Bridge. 

After two years in office, Banks stepped down to become Miranda’s envoy for England’s failed bid to host the 2006 FIFA World Cup. The bid failed, Germany winning the nomination.

What do you mean, bribery and money laundering?

From then until the 2005 General Election Banks remained a backbencher, though he made a failed bid to become Labour’s candidate in the 2004 election for Mayor of London. Red Ken won the nomination and was re-elected as Mayor. Tony Banks was in no position to yell ‘but Ken colluded with the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal…’

A vegetarian, Tony Banks was one of Parliament’s staunchest supporters of animal rights, often speaking against fox hunting and vivisection and he was a Vice-President of the League Against Cruel Sports. Banks was regarded as on the left of Labour, being staunchly republican, an opponent of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and a member of the Socialist Campaign Group. The Socialist Campaign Group contained many Caring Socialists who knew about the criminality of Dafydd et al but throughout all the Caring and Socialism they remained very quiet indeed. Just some of those previously named on this blog are Dennis Skinner, Eric Heffer, Bernie Grant, Tony Benn, Stuart Holland, John Tilley, Llew Smith and the Defender Of The Citizen Against Dangerous Nutters, Alice Mahon.

Tony Banks’s only speeches regarding the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan were to request Gov’t money and the help of the Royal Navy for the animals of the Kabul Zoo, particularly for Marjan, the elderly lion who needed air-conditioning for his rheumatism. While I am sure that it wasn’t much fun being a lion in Kabul Zoo, a great many people suffered every bit as badly as Marjan as a result of the invasion of Afghanistan and life for the victims of Dafydd’s gang wasn’t a bed of feathers either. Alan Clark, the ruthless Thatcherite sexual harasser, was unusual for a Tory in that he too was passionate about animal rights and was on occasions filmed being moved to tears by cruelty to animals. People on the left used to enjoy commenting that Clark abhorred cruelty to all animals except human beings, upon whom he quite enjoyed inflicting suffering. Yet no-one ever maxed out on the same inconsistencies in Tony Banks’s character. Tony was always an all round good bloke, even if his wit was a little too scathing at times.

On 21 May 2004, Banks proposed an Early Day Motion in the 2003–04 session of Parliament,  in response to newspaper reports revealing that MI5 had proposed using pigeons as flying bombs during WW II. The motion condemned the proposal, describing humans as “obscene, perverted, cruel, uncivilised and lethal” and proposed that the House “looks forward to the day when the inevitable asteroid slams into the Earth and wipes them out thus giving nature the opportunity to start again”. It was signed by only two other MPs, Jezza and John McDonnell. Banks’s description of the human race on that EDM certainly captured the nature of some of the Top Doctors, Angels and social workers who enthusiastically worked with Dafydd, but I’m not sure that it was an accurate description of the kids of 13 who were forcibly removed from their homes in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle-upon-Tyne or even Wales and sent to live with the gang in north Wales…

Banks is a supporter of the arts and Chaired the Commons Works of Art Committee, which had responsibility for historic paintings and sculptures in the Palace of Turds.

Banks was known for outspoken and often colourful comments. At the 1997 Labour Party conference, he described Tory leader William Hague as a “foetus”, adding that Conservative MPs might be rethinking their views on abortion. That particular comment caused a bit of a row. If Banks had really wanted to do damage to Hague, he could have mentioned that at the time, Ronnie Waterhouse and a pack of highly paid lawyers were repeatedly accusing people who were describing, in public, how they had been gang raped and beaten for years when they were resident in children’s homes in north Wales, as lying criminals who were after a bit of compensation. Some of the witnesses collapsed while giving evidence and others were unable to walk out of the building unaided.

In 1990, responding to a speech by Conservative MP Terry Dicks opposing Gov’t funding for the arts, Banks said Dicks was “living proof that a pig’s bladder on a stick can get elected to Parliament”. He described Nicholas Soames as “a one-man food mountain”. Fatty Soames was Carlo’s friend and adviser. There were a great many more effective things that Banks could have said about Soames than simply calling him a fat bastard.

Banks referred to Canadians as “dickheads” for culling seals. One reason why the seal cull in Canada continued with a vengeance was that the Canadians were very angry at what they felt was criticism from ignoramuses in other countries. I too would have wanted to stop the seal cull if I could but people tend to take entrenched positions if they feel that cheeky sods from other countries are trying to give them orders. China adopted such a position when Stephen Fry took to the media to tell them not to execute a mentally ill Brit who had been caught in possession of a huge quantity of class A drugs. They told Fry to mind his own business and sped up the process of execution.  Nice one Stephen! Jesus Christ, you were dealing with China and that poor bugger was in their hands…

 

Banks crossed his fingers when he took the oath of allegiance to Lilibet during a new session of Parliament. Banks could have made it public that Lilibet’s Woman-of-the-Bedchamber Dame Mary Morrison had a brother who was abusing kids in care in north Wales and elsewhere, particularly when Lilibet knighted Peter Morrison in Feb 1991, when I was facing yet another attempt to imprison me on the basis of the perjury of the Top Doctors et al…  But no, the republican Banks crossed his fingers and explained that the crossed fingers were him wishing himself luck in his new job as Minister for Sport.

Once, during a live debate on UK teatime chat show ‘Richard & Judy’, Banks called for the video game ‘Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas’ to be banned and declared that “Some video games are worse than child pornography”. Some video games are indeed unsavoury, but the making of those games has never involved kids in care in north Wales being forced to have sex with adults and indeed animals while they were filmed, if necessary by threatening them at gunpoint.

Banks was a keen supporter of Chelsea F.C. and regularly attended matches. Whether Banks the footie fan knew about the cases of young people being sexually exploited by their sports coaches and others in sport which have now become so public I don’t know. I didn’t know about it, but I did spend years wondering why Keith Fearns, a member of Dafydd’s gang who worked for Gwynedd Social Services, ran the Bangor Ladies Football Team and took the Bangor Ladies – who were nearly all student social workers – across Europe, particularly to the former Eastern Bloc. When I remarked upon this to someone else I was met with the suggestion ‘a prostitution racket probably’. Then Martin Jones, the former CEO of the North West Wales NHS Trust, began volunteering to coach a local boys football team on Anglesey and I realised that something odd was definitely happening with regard to football in north Wales. There is no part of Martin Jones at all that would be interested in, or make him suitable for, coaching an under 11s football team.

Banks was a member of the British Humanist Association, as were/are many other paedophiles’ friends who have been named on this blog.

On 23 November 2004, Banks announced he would not stand at the next General Election and that he would retire from the Commons. On 26 November, in an interview with Robin Oakley on Radio 4, he said “To be honest I found it intellectually numbing, and tedious in the extreme. I most certainly won’t miss the constituency work. I’ve got to tell you that honestly. It’s 22 years of the same cases, but just the faces and the people changing. It might sound a little disparaging to say this about people’s lives and their problems and we did deal with them … but I got no satisfaction from this at all. I really didn’t. And all you were was a sort of high-powered social worker and perhaps not even a good one at that. I will miss being Chairman of the Works of Art Committee . . . because I was having so much intellectual enjoyment and indeed just straightforward fun, out of reorganising our collection and that kept me in touch with history.”

The reason that all those dreary constituents of Banks’s were turning up on his doorstep with their many problems was that their lives were very difficult thanks to Banks and the rest of the political class not giving a bugger about them and stitching everything up for themselves. The infrastructure of Britain had been allowed to collapse, the ‘services’ didn’t work and in Newham people’s kids were being sent to live with a gang of paedophiles in north Wales for years who forced them into sex work which left more than a few of them infected with HIV.

When the former kids in care began dying in the late 1980s, those caring sharing politicians and NHS professionals who had watched the abuse and trafficking in silence twisted Ken Clarke’s arm to extract dosh to establish an AIDS hospice in the East End, where the victims of John Allen and Dafydd’s gang died, hidden from view, without anyone knowing how they had become infected with HIV and why they had no families to look after them as they lay dying. The cover story was that their families had ‘rejected them because they were gay’. No, some families had rejected them because they were rent boys, but the real problem was that they had been taken away from their families when they were kids and handed over to Dafydd’s gang who ruined them. They returned to London a few years later, drug addicted, mad and infected with HIV. See post ‘Apocalypse Now’.

As for being no more than ‘a high powered social worker’, Norman Tebbit used to complain of exactly the same thing. ‘We are MPs and MPs are here to hold the executive to account, we are not social workers.’ Well if the Executive have turned the welfare system into one huge crime syndicate and social workers are trafficking their clients, MPs are going to find a lot of distressed desperate people knocking at their doors.

But it’s so much more fun being Chairman of the Works of Arts Committee, the food and wine is excellent and guess who I met the other day???? No, it wasn’t an AIDS-raddled destitute kid of 15 who was working as a rent boy, it was Lord St John of Fawsley!!!

On 24 March 2005 Tony Banks made his final speech in the House of Commons. A week after the General Election, on 13 May 2005, it was announced he would be created a life peer and on 23 June 2005 the peerage was gazetted as Baron Stratford of Stratford in the London Borough of Newham. Which must have been the last almighty dump that Tony Banks took on the heads of the People Of Newham.

On 7 January 2006, it was reported that Lord Banks of the Proles had collapsed two days earlier, after suffering a major stroke while having lunch on Sanibel Island in Florida, where he was on holiday. He therefore went out in the manner to which he was accustomed. He was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Fort Myers and died on 8 January without regaining consciousness. PM Miranda described Banks as “one of the most charismatic politicians in Britain, a true man of the people.”

But then Miranda thought that the UK had a People’s Princess who supported Causes Close To Her Heart, such as expensive shopping sprees in Paris, New York and London and messing about on yachts in the Mediterranean.

Yo Blair, I feel the hand of history upon my shoulder, but it’s not a day for soundbites.

Car Crash: 1997 Car Crash Princess Diana

 

Sometime before that business with the tunnel and the white Fiat Uno, Fatty Soames, who didn’t like Diana, was said to have told her that accidents can happen you know. There didn’t seem to be any dispute regarding this comment until Diana crashed in a tunnel after which Fatty Soames maintained that he made no such comment. Ever.

The obituary for Tony Banks published in ‘The Guardian’ mentioned that some time after the ‘food mountain’ comment, Banks became friendly with Fatty Soames and ‘at a time when the heir to the throne was trying to reshape his public image, Banks was drafted to help with suggestions on appropriate issues Prince Charles might consider supporting. This relationship foundered, predictably, over the issue of hunting’.

‘The Guardian’ also stated that Tony Banks was close friends with a number of other Tories, including Ian Gow and David Mellor. Gow was the MP for Eastbourne and Thatcher’s mate, who was blown up in June 1990. See previous posts. Gow’s assassination was attributed to the IRA but Gow is one of those whom it is suspected might have been targeted because of his role in the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Gow was the son of Alexander Gow, a Top Doctor based at Bart’s and Harley Street. Alexander Gow would have known Lady Juliet Bingley’s surgeon father from Bart’s and Lady Juliet herself, both of whom were concealing organised abuse, including the activities of Lord Louis Mountbatten. See eg. post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’ and comment following post ‘Dr Victoria Winckler v Dr Sally Baker: Update’.

David Mellor colluded with Dafydd and related gangs in his various Gov’t roles, including as Minister of State for Health, July 1988-Oct 1989 and as Minister of State for Home Affairs, Oct 1989-July 1990. In 1983, when Mellor was first appointed to the Home Office, he was involved in the pioneering PACE Act 1984, in the establishment of the CPS and the significant vivisection “laboratory testing of animals” welfare legislation the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986. Although the police made much of calling PACE the ‘protection of criminals act’, it didn’t afford any protection to the victims of Dafydd’s gang who continued to be fitted up in north Wales and the CPS was endemically corrupt and a very good friend indeed to Dafydd et al as well as to Cyril Smith and Greville Janner. The Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act was prepared by a coalition of animal welfarists and scientists led by Sir Andrew Huxley (see post ‘On The Occasion Of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’) and was jointly launched by them, Mellor and campaigner Dr Michael Balls – father of Ed Balls MP  – gave the UK ‘what is still the most advanced framework for the protection of laboratory animals’. Lab animals in the UK were certainly not treated in the way that they were in for example Japan, but that is more a function of a different view of animals in Britain as a whole. There are some researchers who ignored the legislation concerning lab animals – it wasn’t as if anyone was going to ever check up or hold them to account – and when I was an MSc student at Hammersmith Hospital/RPMS, 1986-87, some of the other students fell out with a student called Cyril Rooney because he was so cruel to research animals. Rooney is now a Top Doctor in Ireland (see previous posts). The Institute of Psychiatry continued to conduct cruel experiments of questionable value on primates.

Michael Balls studied zoology at Oxford University, graduating in 1960, so he will have known some of the zoologists at UCNW who colluded with Dafydd et al in the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Balls conducted research for a DPhil from Oxford at the University of Geneva, 1961-64. After post-doc research at the University of California, Berkeley, CA, and at Reed College, Portland, OR, 1964-66, Balls lectured in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of East Anglia. During that time he taught at Eton for a term. In 1975, Balls moved to the University of Nottingham Medical School as a senior lecturer in the Department of Human Morphology. Balls became Reader in Medical Cell Biology in 1985 and was promoted to Professor of Medical Cell Biology in 1990. Since 1995, he has been an Emeritus Professor at Nottingham. So Michael Balls knew about the massive research fraud being conducted by Professor Robert Baldwin and his colleagues at the CRC Labs at Nottingham University in the 1980s (see post ‘Oh Lordy, It’s CR UK’).

Michael Balls bagged his job at the University of East Anglia through his friend Ian Gibson, who was Labour MP for Norwich North, 1997-2009. Gibson resigned from the Commons in June 2009 after he was barred by the Labour Party from standing as their candidate for the seat in the 2010 General Election, following his behaviour during the parliamentary expenses scandal. 

Ian Gibson was educated at the Dumfries Academy before attending Edinburgh University where he acquired a degree in genetics and a doctorate. He continued his studies in the US at Indiana University and the University of Washington. Gibson worked continuously for UEA from 1965 until his election 32 years later. He became the Dean of the School of Biological Sciences at UEA in 1991 and an honorary Professor in 2003.

Gibson was a member of the Executive of MSF, 1972-92 and joined the Labour Party in 1983 after seven years in the SWP. He unsuccessfully contested Norwich North at the 1992 General Election. Gibson was the coach of the cross-party parliamentary football team.

Ian Gibson was most recently a member of the Select Committee on Innovation Universities Science and skills. He was a member of the Science and Technology Select Committee from 1997 and served as its Chairman, 2001-5. Gibson was chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer. Whilst he was the Dean of Biology at UEA Gibson was the head of a cancer research team and was awarded a ‘Champion’ award by Macmillan Cancer Relief for his work in support of people with cancer.

Gibson attracted controversy in August 2006 after claiming inbreeding in his constituency may have played a part in its rising number of diabetes cases. However, he did later apologise for these remarks, stating he did not mean to cause offence. Gibson should have also apologised for being so ignorant about the science with regard to that matter.

In May 2009, Gibson became embroiled in the MPs’ expenses scandal when it was reported that he claimed for a flat in which his daughter lived rent-free before selling it to her for half its market value. Subsequently, he was barred from standing in the next general election by a disciplinary panel of the Labour Party.

Gibson has been married to Elizabeth Frances Lubbock since March 1974. They have two daughters. Ian Gibson is a supporter of Norwich F.C.

Perhaps Ed Balls’s dad’s friend can explain why he has remained silent about the research fraud in cancer research, both at his pal Michael Balls’s employer Nottingham University and on the part of the big boys at Hammersmith Hospital, Imperial College and other places. I’m also wondering if Ed’s dad’s mate can tell us all why he said nothing about the MSF reps at St George’s Hospital Medical School concealing the branch of the Westminster Paedophile Ring which was being facilitated by St George’s as well as colluding with serious misconduct and patient harm. Was the decision of Ed’s dad’s friend to begin a career in Labour politics in the early 1990s after so many years in science at all related to what happened to me at St George’s in 1991, after I witnessed what was going on there and the involvement of the MSF reps (see previous posts)?

Presumably because he has been cluttering up Norwich for so long, Ian Gibson will have known a previous MP for Norwich North, Lord David Ennals, who was mates with Dafydd and Dafydd’s mate Dr Jim Birley and who spent his entire career concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts. As Ed’s dad’s mate is a supporter of Norwich F.C. he will know the Labour Party activist and former Chairman of Norwich F.C. who was a pal of Lord Ennals and whom Ken Clarke reappointed as Chairman of Anglia Regional Health Authority ‘because he was such a good Chairman’ rather than because he knew all about Dafydd and organised abuse in High Places when Ken Clarke was desperate to keep the lid on it all. See post ‘Britain In Agony’.

After all these years, can Ed’s dad’s friend shed any light on his decision to leave the SWP and join the Labour Party in 1983, the year that Miranda was elected to the Commons, the Miranda who’s wife knew a great deal about Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring because her dad was in the thick of Dafydd’s associates as a Labour luvvie in Liverpool and her barrister colleagues with their Radical Consciences in the Mansfield community were concealing it all (see post ‘Britain In Agony’)?

Following her husband Tony Banks’s death, Lady Stratford – yes, there is one, she’s Lady Sally no less – vowed to continue Banks’s animal rights work, leading a campaign against the culling of seal pups in Canada. That will have gone down a treat in Canada after Lord Banks insulted them all. Lady Stratford is also a Patron of the Captive Animals Protection Society, CAPS, a charity campaigning for an end to the use of animals in circuses, zoos and the exotic pet trade.

Sally Banks, Lady Stratford:

Your hair dye has been tested on animals Lady Stratford. How do I know? Because by law it has to be…

‘Lady Stratford’s strength of feeling about animal protection issues led to the formation of the Sally Banks Seal Campaign, to campaign against the horrific annual slaughter of harp seals in Canada. Recently retired from her work as a senior social worker, Sally is now a freelance consultant in health and social care.’ Would Sally like to make a police statement?

Lady Stratford is a Trustee of the Newham branch of Age Concern. Age Concern holds a magnetic attraction for people who have colluded and concealed organised abuse, they flock to Age Concern eg. Margaret Hanson, wife of Labour MP David Hanson. Margaret was formerly the leader of a team of family and children’s social workers in Cheshire when Dafydd’s gang were busy in Cheshire. Margaret also served as a Councillor in Cheshire as did her husband. Latterly Margaret served as Vice-Chairman of the Betsi Board, after the Chairman Merfyn Jones and CEO Mary Burrows had been kicked out by the paedophiles’ friends. See previous posts.

Sally Banks sits on the board of Directors of the Theatre Royal Stratford East, ‘which has a strong tradition of working with young people from ethnically-diverse local communities’. Predators target youth theatre, it’s a favourite hunting ground of theirs. The young people don’t say a word because they are desperate to make it big in acting and it’s a competitive business. They are in the same position as those freelances at the BBC whom Sally’s husband represented when he was a union official years ago, one word out of place and they’re finished.

‘Two rescued cats share Sally’s east London home, together with a 70-year-old tortoise, who has lived with the family for many years’. Obviously Sally runs a sort of social services and branch of Age Concern for animals, having screwed up so spectacularly in her day job with people.

Others involved with CAPS include:

Mike Hancock CBE MP:

Mike Hancock CBE MP

Mike was the Liberal Democrat MP for Portsmouth South, 1997-2014. Hancock formally resigned from the Liberal Democrat Whip in early June 2014, until a civil court action brought against him by a female constituent alleging improper conduct was resolved. An out-of-court settlement with the woman, known only as ‘Annie’, was reached later in June 2014, in which Hancock admitted that he “crossed the line” into inappropriate behaviour. ‘Annie’ was an Empowered Service User who had sought Hancock’s advice in his capacity as her constituency MP. Hancock resignation was announced on 18 September 2014 and he then sat as an Independent MP until he left the Commons in 2015.

Hancock was previously the SDP MP for Portsmouth South, 1984-87. Dr Death and most of his followers knew about Dafydd and the related gangs. See posts ‘Dr Death’ and ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’

In between his two periods of time in the Commons, Hancock was a Director of BBC Daytime and a District Officer for MENCAP. Mike has been Chair of the southern region of the NSPCC since 1989. The has been abuse of clients of MENCAP and the NSPCC colluded with the organised abuse of children in north Wales and elsewhere.

Mike has a very keen interest in a wide range of animal protection issues, including those relating to animals in circuses and zoos. Mike has tabled many Early Day Motions relating to animal issues and signed many more. He has been a Patron of CAPS for many years.

Mike Hancock is quoted on CAPS website as saying ‘I wish CAPS well in the future and hope that it will go from strength to strength as many animals are relying on it to speak up for them when they can’t.’ This is a common sentiment expressed by animal rights activists and not one that I have a problem with except in the cases when the people saying it add ‘people can speak up for themselves, animals can’t’. They should have tried speaking up as a kid in care or Empowered Service User in north Wales. No-one would listen, no matter how often you spoke up and how loudly. There really was no getting through to anyone, not even to animal rights activists.

Honestly readers in England, it really did not matter what happened to someone in north Wales in the 1970s, 80s and 90s, one only had to utter the words ‘they’re from one of the homes for naughty boys’ or ‘they’ve been in Denbigh’ and whatever had happened to someone would be completely ignored, no matter how bad it was. This was how people were found shot dead or hanging dead from unlikely places and there were no investigations.

Mike Hancock’s sexual impropriety with an Empowered Service User was only one of a number of highlights in a very impressive career in public life. Matyas Eorsi, a Hungarian member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, said of his colleague Hancock in August 2010: “He is the most pro-Russian MP from among all of the countries of western Europe. You just have to read his speeches. When it came to debates on Putin, freedom of the media or the war with Georgia, Michael always defended Russia. Among the Liberal bloc in Strasbourg we were all stunned by his position. According to him, Russia really is a fully-fledged democracy.”

Hancock said that he would act to defend the Gov’t of Azerbaijan in Westminster. He said that he disapproved of criticism of President Ilham Aliyev’s regime and has stated that, in particular, he disapproved of the democratic opposition movement within Azerbaijan. In 2013 Hancock voted against a critical report on political prisoners in Azerbaijan.

Hancock has stated that he does not believe that the Armenian Genocide actually happened, describing it as a “so-called genocide” based on “dubious historical” claims; in March 2010, he said: “Armenia is like a headless chicken that runs around in circles. They really do not know where to run.”

Hancock is a supporter of homeopathy, having signed several early day motions in support of its continued funding on the NHS, as is that loyal servant of Dafydd’s gang, Sir Alan Meale. See post ‘Britain In Agony’.

On 8 August 2010, one of Hancock’s parliamentary aides, Russian national Katia Zatuliveter and her friend were questioned at Gatwick Airport on returning from celebrating her 25th birthday in Croatia. Hancock had met Zatuliveter in Strasbourg where she worked for the Council of Europe. She started working as an aide to Hancock in 2008, after having been an intern at the House of Commons for a while and undergoing security vetting. Until Hancock was ousted as chairman of the All-Party Group on Russia in June 2010, Zatuliveter had been the All-Party Group’s secretary, giving her direct access to all MPs with the greatest interest in Russia and legitimate reason to liaise with the Russian authorities; according to sources at Westminster, Zatuliveter had access to Hancock’s private emails and virtually ran the UK-Russia group.

Reportedly, Zatuliveter had been identified by MI5 when surveillance linked her to another person with close links to the Russian Embassy in London; the latter was suspected of working for the SVR, Russia’s foreign intelligence service.

On 4 December 2010, it was reported that Zatuliveter was facing deportation in Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre, after she was arrested by the Met on behalf of MI5 and the Border and Immigration Agency on 2 December 2010, on suspicion of espionage, the police action having been approved by Home Secretary Theresa May. The incident happened in the wake of the uncovering and expulsion of ten Russian sleeper agents in the US in June 2010, including a young woman who had British citizenship, Anna Chapman. 

On 5 December 2010, Hancock confirmed the detention of Zatuliveter and advised the media that she was appealing against her potential deportation. In subsequent interviews on the same day, he called the espionage accusations “absolutely ludicrous” commenting further: “I have no reason to believe she did anything but act honourably during the time she was working for me. She is determined to fight her corner and she genuinely believes, and I back her 100%, that she has nothing to hide and has done nothing wrong. If she has, the (security) services are right. But they need to prove their point now.”

The media quoted some of Hancock’s former Council of Europe’s liberal group colleagues as saying that in the 2000s Hancock would usually come to their regular private gatherings alongside a series of young Russian and Ukrainian women – in spite of protests by some of those; Hancock’s former colleagues said they had witnessed his assistants using the computers of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe, the liberal group secretariat, which were supposed to be protected by a password; apparently his assistants knew the password. Hancock denied claims by Matyas Eorsi that he had failed to declare all of his visits to Russia, saying that he did not know exactly how many trips he had made to Russia, as his passport had “fallen into the sea”. It was also reported that Hancock had allegedly agreed to help another Russian national, a 25-year-old Ekaterina Paderina, stay in Britain after she ran into visa problems in the late 1990s.

On 7 December 2010 Russia’s Foreign Ministry described the affair as “vaudeville based on a threadbare spy plot” being whipped up by the UK media, which could “only be regarded with pity”.

On 9 December 2010, Katerina Zatuliveter filed an appeal against arrest and deportation to Russia; in a statement released by her lawyer Tessa Gregory, Zatuliveter said British authorities had failed to provide evidence of her work not being “conducive to national security”; of MI5 she said: “I fully cooperated with them when they questioned me. I have nothing to hide and was only doing my job as a parliamentary researcher.” Also on that day, Alexander Sternik, Russia’s charge d’affaires said of Hancock: “Mike Hancock is one of those people who are known to have a balanced objective and sympathetic approach towards the modern Russia and its foreign policy.” Sternik also said that the Russian view of the affair was that Hancock was being targeted because he was a parliamentarian who “showed sympathy and understanding for the modern Russian state”; of Zatuliver’s detention he said: “We have not received, although we insisted on this, any clarification as to the motives and the reasons that this detention was made.”

At a Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) hearing on her case begun on 18 October 2011, Zatuliveter admitted to having had a four-year affair with Hancock. She also admitted that she had had affairs with a NATO official, a Dutch diplomat and a senior UN official.

On 29 November 2011, the SIAC delivered its ruling that allowed the appeal; the SIAC’s Open Judgment concluded: “Our conclusion, at least on the balance of probabilities, is that she was and is not a Russian agent. […]”. The 2011 SIAC’s ruling on Zatuliveter’s appeal noted of her relationship with him: “The relationship with Mr Hancock was enduring and genuine on both sides.”

In October 2010 a complaint was made against Hancock of indecent assault, which Hampshire Police announced would not be pursued in December 2010 due to insufficient evidence. In February 2013, a civil suit against Hancock over the same complaint was filed. In September 2013 the police reopened their investigation, asking that a report for Portsmouth City Council, be handed over. Hancock was then still a Portsmouth councillor, as well as an MP for the city. The report was an investigation into whether Hancock had breached the Councillors Code of Conduct for Portsmouth City Council, the council suspended any action as a result of the report until all other proceedings have concluded. The Police decided after considering the report that Hancock would face no charges in relation to the complaint.

In January 2014, Hancock was suspended from the Liberal Democrats after the party nationally reviewed the report commissioned by Liberal Democrat run Portsmouth City Council, which had found “prima facie evidence of his unwelcome sexual approaches” to his constituent. The report, which has not been officially published, had become available to The Guardian in December 2013.

The civil case was scheduled to come to trial in mid-June 2014, but a settlement between the parties emerged on 11 June. A week later, when details of the out of court settlement became public knowledge, Hancock apologised to his constituent (known only under the pseudonym of Annie) via a statement issued by the complainant’s solicitors at the High Court in London. Any compensation paid to the complainant was not made publicly known. In part, his statement says: “I understand that you felt degraded. I did not treat you with sufficient respect. I made you feel deeply uncomfortable and discriminated against, and I crossed the line.”

A psychiatric report on Hancock, who was undergoing treatment at the Priory Hospital in Southampton, confirmed that he was freely able to make such a statement. So after indecently assaulting an Empowered Service User, Hancock metamorphosed into an Empowered Service User himself. Tony Francis sought shelter by becoming an Empowered Service User and Dafydd has been using the strategy for so long that he was doing it in the days when the term used was that ‘Dafydd suffers from a nervous illness’. It was certainly a rare condition, it caused Dafydd to do the most extraordinary things… . Hancock resigned from the Liberal Democrats in September 2014 before a disciplinary hearing. The news was disclosed in The Independent on 18 September.

Hancock has been married to Jacqueline Elliott (also a former member of Portsmouth City Council until losing her seat in the 2014 elections) since 1967 and has a son and a daughter.

Hancock has been the Vice-Chairman of Portsmouth Dock since 1992. 

 

Dr Edgar Mann. Edgar has been a patron of CAPS for many years. He has been a Top Doctor – a GP – and a longstanding member of the ancient Isle of Man Parliament, the Tynwald, where, over the years, he held major positions in the Manx Government. At the same time he has been involved in most of the Manx animal charities and has chaired the Pets Aid League, the Manx SPLG and is currently the Chair of the Home of Rest for Old Horses. Edgar was also involved in the formation of the Manx Cat Sanctuary. He negotiated the end of the annual auction of the retiring old tram horses, who now live out their lives in peace at the Home of Rest for Old Horses, just outside Douglas, on the Isle of Man.

There was a very nice secretary at St George’s Hospital Medical School when I worked there, 1989-91, who had moved to London from the Isle of Man. She wasn’t nuts like most of the other people at St George’s and she worked as the medical secretary for the loathed Professor Stuart Stanton, who was alleged to be involved with something very big and very nasty but no-one quite knew what (see previous posts). This secretary told me that she would never have been a patient of Stanton’s under any circumstances. One day I discovered that she had been forced to leave the Isle of Man after a scandal and that was why she was stuck at St George’s, although she obviously thought that they were complete twats. I don’t know what the scandal was but those we know and love knew and they’ll have used it to squeeze her as hard as they could…

Brian Sewell:

Brian Sewell

Brian Sewell was best known as that art critic of the London Evening Standard with the very posh strangulated vowels, which ‘Private Eye’ took the piss out of. Sewell was a prolific broadcaster across news, arts and documentary programming on both radio and TV. Brian Sewell raised funds for the rescue and re-homing of abandoned and ill-treated domestic pets and deliberately developed his London garden as a haven for wildlife.

Sewell was educated at the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School, Hampstead. He then studied at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London University, where his tutors included Anthony Blunt, who became Sewell’s close friend. Blunt has been named as one of the VIP paedophiles’ who visited the Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast. The ring at Kincora had links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales, to the ring at St George’s Hospital Medical School and to UCL.

Sewell graduated in 1957 and worked at Christie’s auction house and subsequently became an art dealer. He completed his National Service as a commissioned officer in the Royal Army Service Corps. 

In 1979, after Blunt’s exposure as the fourth man in the Cambridge spy ring, Sewell assisted in sheltering him in Chiswick. Blunt was outed in 1979. The year that Mary Wynch was illegally imprisoned by Dafydd et al, the year that Jeremy Thorpe stood trial for incitement and conspiracy to kill and the year that there was panic and high drama at UCNW (see post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’). Presumably Blunt’s exposure was related to the net almost closing in on the Westminster Paedophile Ring…

In Dirty Dalí: A Private View on Channel 4 on 3 June 2007, Sewell described his acquaintance with Salvador Dali in the late 1960s, which included lying in the foetal position without trousers in the armpit of a figure of Christ and masturbating for Dalí, who pretended to take photos while fumbling in his trousers. I’ll say that for Dali, he can always be relied upon. The Hergest patient F hated Salvador Dali; F maintained that Dali was an ‘exhibitionist who kicked a blind man down the road in the name of art’.

In a TV programme broadcast on Channel 4 on 24 July 2007, marking the 40th anniversary of the passing of the Sexual Offences Act 1967 which partially decriminalised homosexuality in England and Wales, Sewell said, “I never came out… but I have slowly emerged”. Sewell was described as bisexual but also described himself as gay, saying he knew he probably was homosexual at the age of six. He had chastised himself for his attraction to men, describing it ‘as an “affliction” and a “disability” and told readers, “no homosexual has ever chosen this sexual compulsion”‘. In the first episode of The Naked Pilgrim Sewell alluded to the loss of his virginity at the hands of a 60-year-old French woman “who knew what she was doing and was determined”; Sewell was 20 at the time. In his autobiography, Sewell indicates that he lost his virginity at the age of 15 to a fellow pupil at Haberdashers’ Aske’s School.

Despite all the sexual confusion – and Sewell’s appalling attitude to the lower orders and people who lived oop north – at least Sewell liked fluffy furry things.

 

Angela Smith, Baroness Smith of Basildon :

Angela Smith

Angela took a seat in the House of Lords in 2010 after 13 years as the Labour MP for Basildon and East Thurrock. Although supportive of all animal protection issues, Angela has been a particularly strong opponent of circuses which use animals. As Patron of CAPS, she has written articles for the Labour Animal Welfare Society, in which she reiterated the call for a ban on all species of animals in circuses. Angela is quoted on the CAPS website as saying “CAPS should be congratulated as one of the most active and effective animal protection groups in the country. Its campaigns are well researched and there is a scientific base for its actions, which means I know I can use its campaign materials with confidence.”

Now for some gen on Angela that doesn’t appear on the CAPS website. Angela Evans Smith, Baroness Smith of Basildon was the Labour Co-operative MP for Basildon, 1997-2010. Smith attended Pitsea Junior School and Chalvedon Comprehensive (later Chalvedon School) in Basildon, before reading Public Administration at Leicester Poly, at the time that Frank Beck and his mate Greville Janner were busy with that paedophile ring in the Leicester area, which had links to Dafydd’s gang. In 1978, Angela married Nigel Smith, who has written a number of history books for secondary school pupils. From 1982 to 1983, Smith was a trainee accountant with the London Borough of Newham, 1982-83 and then worked for the League Against Cruel Sports, 1983-95, becoming the head of Political and Public Relations. So Angela called in at all the right places before she worked as a political researcher, 1995-97. Angela Smith was a member of Essex County Council from 1989 and a member of the Fire Authority for the County of Essex.

Angela was selected to stand for election through an all-woman short-list, being at such a disadvantage by possessing ovaries. It was clearly outstanding talent that propelled Angela into the Lords, despite her being held back by her gonads.

Angela was appointed a Gov’t Whip in 2001 – so Miranda knew that she had dirt on someone –  before being promoted to a junior Ministerial post for N Ireland in Oct 2002. In 2006 she was moved to the Dept for Communities and Local Gov’t, with responsibility for Fire Services. On 28 June 2007, Smith was appointed as a PPS to the new PM Gordon, entitling her to attend Cabinet. That was when Gordon’s agents were creating havoc at Bangor University. Angela left her junior ‘let’s sink Merfyn’ role at the reshuffle of June 2009, to enter Gov’t in the Cabinet Office at the rank of Minister of State, when she was sworn of the Privy Council and progressed to a senior ‘let’s sink Merfyn’ role. In the Queen’s Privy as well, there’s posh for you.

Prince Charles (@Charles_HRH) | Twitter

As Minister of State in the Cabinet Office, Angela’s role incorporated the offices of Minister for the Third Sector and the appropriately titled Minister Social Exclusion.

Angela obviously knocked them dead re her expertise in social exclusion in Lilibet’s Privy, because was created a life peeress on 7 July 2010. In the Lords, Smith was Labour Spokeswoman for Energy and Climate Change, 2010-13, N Ireland, 2011-12 and the Home Office, 2012-15. She also served as Opposition Deputy Whip in the House of Lords, 2012-15. On 27 May 2015, Smith was elected unopposed as Labour’s Leader in the Lords and so joined Harriet Harman’s Shadow Cabinet, which is not really something to boast about. 

In June 2009 Smith had to repay over £1,000 for wrongly claimed Council Tax expenses and service charges for her second property in Elephant and Castle. A review by Sir Thomas Legg uncovered further monies over-claimed by Baroness Smith making a total of £1,429 which she later returned.

 

CAPS also campaigns against the use of animals in the audio-visual industry, which surely includes child porn featuring beastiality.

 

Tony Banks had a celebrity friend, the American singer-songwriter Aimee Mann. Banks’s wiki states that Aimee became a close friend of Banks after meeting him in London ‘in the early 1990s’ and the song “You’re With Stupid Now” on her 1995 album ‘I’m With Stupid’ was inspired by ‘their discussions of British politics’.  An interview published in The Indie in May 1996 explains that Aimee Mann was in the UK ‘doing a tour two years ago’ when someone from her record company called and said that a fax had arrived from an MP who wanted to have tea with her at the Commons. None of this made any sense to Aimee because she didn’t know anyone, or have any interest, in UK politics, but her record company encouraged her to go and even sent someone from the record company along with her to join the party. The MP concerned was Tony Banks and it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Aimee Mann began her career in the early 1980s and has won two Grammy Awards. She was called a “lyric genius” by KCRW and was named one of the world’s top 10 greatest living songwriters by NPR in 2006. One of Aimee’s early bands was the Boston punk band the ‘Young Snakes’. In 1983, the band released the EP ‘Bark Along With The Young Snakes’. In 1983, Mann co-founded the band ‘Til Tuesday’ in Boston with her boyfriend Michael Hausman (who later managed Mann’s solo career). In 1987, Mann sang vocals on the single “Time Stand Still” by rock band Rush from their 1987 album ‘Hold Your Fire’. She also appeared in the music video for the song.

In 1988, ‘Til Tuesday released ‘Everything’s Different Now’, their third and final album. The album contained the song “The Other End (Of the Telescope)” which Mann wrote and sang with Elvis Costello. ‘Til Tuesday broke up in 1990 when Mann left to start her solo career.

In 1993, Mann released her debut solo album, ‘Whatever’, which sold modestly but met with critical praise. In 1995, Mann released ‘I’m With Stupid’ through Geffen Records, which, like her debut, garnered positive reviews but modest commercial success. In 1999, Mann recorded original material for the soundtrack to the Paul Thomas Anderson film ‘Magnolia’, which earned both Academy Award and Grammy Award nominations for the song “Save Me”. She negotiated a contract release from David Geffen and co–founded her own label, SuperEgo Records with manager, Michael Hausman.

In 1997, Mann married songwriter Michael Penn whom she met in the 1980s. They courted while Mann was recording Whatever. Mann had previously been in a relationship with XTC guitarist David Gregory. Penn met Mann during the recording of her album ‘I’m With Stupid’ (to which Penn contributed), the two struck up a friendship, which blossomed into romance and their December 29, 1997, marriage. Together with manager Michael Hausman they formed United Musicians, an independent music collective founded on “the principle that every artist should be able to retain copyright ownership of the work he or she has created and that this ownership is the basis for artistic strength and true independence.” Penn and Mann live in Los Angeles.

Michael Daniel Penn (born August 1, 1958) is noted for the 1989 single “No Myth”, a top 20 hit in the US and successful in several other countries. Prior to the release of his 1989 debut album ‘March’, Penn was a member of the Los Angeles band Doll Congress, was one of two musical guests on Saturday Night Live October 24, 1987 (as a solo artist, with his brother Sean Penn hosting), and had appeared as an extra on a few TV series, including ‘St Elsewhere’. 

I cannot find any explanation of why, in 1994, Tony Banks, a Labour MP unconnected with the US music industry, decided to fax Aimee Mann’s record company requesting tea at the Commons with her, why her record company encouraged her to go for tea with him and why they sent a representative along with her. Furthermore, Aimee’s career wasn’t really going very far until she had tea at the Commons with Banks, but after that things perked up quite a bit for Aimee.

Another rocker who wasn’t going very far who also found that his career was suddenly going places in the mid-1990s was Gruff Rhys, who made his name with the Welsh band Super Furry Animals. Gruff’s dad was Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council! Things were looking rather bleak for Gruff’s dad in 1994, because there was a great deal of noise being made about a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire which had allegedly been covered-up at the highest levels of Gov’t. There were demands for a Public Inquiry into the matter and although William Hague didn’t make the decision to hold the Public Inquiry until the summer of 1996, Sir Ronnie Waterhouse knew that he’d be Chairing it back in 1994-95, because he altered his retirement plans to enable him to spend 1995 wining and dining with many of the people who had concealed the VIP paedophile ring which didn’t exist. See post ‘Heart Of Darkness’.

The sudden inexplicable rise and construction of Gruff Rhys as a superstar during the course of the Waterhouse Inquiry was described in my post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’. Gruff wasn’t the only Welsh musician to find fame and fortune at the time, there was a whole cluster of Cool Cymru performers. Nearly all of them had parents or friends with parents who were linked to Dafydd’s gang. Gee the kids of a gang of people traffickers were just so talented! No-one had said that about any of them before 1993-94, they were marginalised and ignored, because for a start Gruff et al sung in Welsh and the UK music industry told them firmly that they really did not want to know. Gruff and his mates were very popular in Bethesda, but they were cold-shouldered even over in Liverpool, until that Public Inquiry was being arranged…

Michael Penn’s label is Sony. Sony gave Gruff Rhys a very, very good deal when Gruff was in no position – or seemed to be in no position – to thrash out such a favourable contract.

I wasn’t a rock star in the mid-1990s, although I did live in the terrace at the end of the building where Gruff used to practice with his mates before he became a superstar. In fact, when Tony Banks was faxing Aimee Mann out of the blue, Dafydd and the gang – helped by Ioan Bowen Rees’s crooked Gwynedd County Council lawyer pal Ron Evans – had embarked on an elaborate plan to try and have me banged up on the grounds of my dangerousness. The plan had really taken off after I and patient F had held a meeting with two people from the Mental Health Act Commission and told them that serious complaints against Dafydd, including those of him sexually exploiting female patients, were not being investigated. Brown had written to the managers of Gwynedd Community Health Trust – again – explaining that he had listened in to the phone call during which Dafydd had told me that he’d get me a place at Liverpool Medical School if I dropped my complaint about him. Brown did not receive a reply. I was told that Brown’s letter had not been received. Among the documents released from my lawyer years later was a copy of Brown’s letter with a handwritten message on it saying ‘what shall we do about Dr Brown’s letter?’ and with a message underneath saying ‘do not reply’.

The plans of Dafydd et al reached a high point when in the autumn of 1994, Dafydd planted a brick which he said I had thrown through his glass door of his house in the early hours of the morning. While I was unaware of this accusation, Dafydd held a number of meetings with the North Wales Police about the brick that they all knew that I had thrown through the door, wrote to the MDU about that matter and the MDU obligingly documented my brick throwing activities as fact. In Nov 1994, Liverpool High Court issued an injunction against me on the grounds of the danger that I represented to Dafydd. The evidence in Dafydd’s affidavit consisted of the details of a number of phone calls that F had made to Dafydd, including one in which F had blown a raspberry down the phone at him and an account of me throwing that brick through Dafydd’s glass door. Dafydd’s affidavit did not detail one other incident of any sort between Dafydd and I. But he obtained an ex-parte injunction from a High Court judge on the basis of it and then further plans to demonstrate that I was becoming a greater and greater danger to Dafydd’s life were laid…

See posts ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’ and ‘The Banality Of Evil’.

On 9 June 1994 Granville Bernard ‘Matt’ Arnold, the Head of Bryn Estyn, died of an ‘unspecified blood disease’. On 13 June 1994 the trial of Peter Howarth, Arnold’s friend and colleague and Paul Wilson, on the sexual abuse of boys in care charges began. In July 1994 Richard Williams was found dead in a car aged 18. He was alleged to have suffered maltreatment whilst in care in north Wales. On 8 July 1994 Peter Howarth was found guilty of child sexual abuse at Chester Crown Court and was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. Paul Wilson is acquitted of all charges. In Nov 1994, Craig Wilson, a former Bryn Estyn resident, hanged himself aged 16…

But Gruff and Aimee would soon be stars!

Aimee’s husband Michael Penn is the brother of actors Sean Penn and Chris Penn. Sean Penn was married to Madonna. Sean Penn has appeared in more than 50 films and won many awards during his career as an actor and director. He has won two Oscars for Best Actor for ‘Mystic River’ (2003) and ‘Milk’ (2008), and was nominated three more times in the same category for ‘Dead Man Walking’ (1995), ‘Sweet and Lowdown’ (1999) and ‘I Am Sam’ (2001). He also received a Directors Guild of America nomination for directing ‘Into the Wild’ (2007).

When Tony Banks was a whippersnapper back in 1975, he became political adviser to the late Judith Hart, Minister for Overseas Development, returning to the trades unions as Assistant General Secretary of the Association of Broadcasting and Allied Staffs in 1976, where Banks then remained until he became an MP in 1983.

Constance Mary Hart, Baroness Hart of South Lanark (née Ridehalgh; 18 September 1924 – 8 December 1991), known as Judith Hart, served as a Minister in Harold Wilson’s Gov’ts during the 1960s and 1970s before entering the Lords in 1988.

Hart was educated at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School, the LSE and the University of London. She married Anthony Bernard Hart in 1946. Judith Hart was a lecturer at a teacher training college, a member of the Fabian Society and a branch Secretary of the Association of Scientific Workers, the union which represented many NHS scientists and technicians which eventually evolved into MSF…

After joining the Labour Party aged 18, Hart stood unsuccessfully as a Labour candidate twice and was then elected as member for Lanark in 1959, holding the seat until 1983. Thereafter she sat for Clydesdale until 1987.

Hart held Ministerial office as joint Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Scotland, 1964-66, Minister of State, Commonwealth Office, 1966-67), Minister of Social Security, 1967–68, Paymaster General (with a seat in the Cabinet), 1968-69, and as Minister of Overseas Development, 1969–70, 1974–75 and 1977-79.

In opposition, Hart was front bench Spokesman on Overseas Aid, 1979-80. She was Govt Co-Chairman of the Women’s National Commission, 1969-70. Within the Labour Party she was a member of the NEC, 1969–83, serving as Vice-Chairman, 1980–81 and as Chairman, 1981-82.

Hart was appointed to Lilibet’s Privy in 1967 and appointed a DBE in 1979. The year that panic broke out and Mary Wynch was unlawfully imprisoned. On 8 February 1988, when Alison Taylor and I were refusing to shut up, Hart was created a life peer. Hart died of cancer at the Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehamton in 1991, aged 67.

The gwerin are featuring in the media and the news so often at present that I have not got time to do justice to their activities on the blog. In the last few days Judge Huw Rees did not imprison a north Wales man for the rape of a girl under 12 years old many years ago on the grounds that this man was of good character. Except for that lapse with the girl under 12 obviously. Most NHS Trusts, in England as well as in Wales, are missing all targets and warning that This Winter Will Be Even Worse Than Previous Winters. NHS big wigs from Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Manchester Universities want more money to Help The Poor of the north of England. Ann Coffey and Julie Bindel are arguing that juries should be scrapped in rape trials because juries can’t be trusted. Neither in my experience can judges or indeed Ann Coffey, who in the early 1970s was employed as a social worker in Gwynedd (see previous posts) or Julie Bindel, who has spent years campaigning for justice for wimmin but who never mentioned Jimmy Savile or the abuse of wimmin by the mental health services and other parts of the welfare sector (see previous posts). Ann and Julie aren’t really gwerin by nature, but in times of crisis, the gwerin welcome anyone on board.

 

When Brown and I were teenagers and crazy things were happening all around us, I used to say to Brown ‘this can’t continue, something is going to happen soon’ and Brown cheerfully said ‘oh it can continue and it will’. He was quite right. The expression we always used in the face of the insanity continuing was ‘Is there still green paint on the Renault? Yes there is still green paint on the Renault.’ This stemmed from an incident at Brown’s school when he was 14, in which the Boys From 5C – the notorious ‘bottom set’ who were about to leave school – splashed green paint over a Renault owned by one of the teachers, the Renault and the teacher being a bit of a joke. The teacher then drove the Renault around for years without doing anything about the green paint and Brown and his friend were monitoring the situation and would regularly ask ‘Is there still green pain on the Renault?’ to which the reply would always be ‘Yes, there is still green paint on the Renault’. I used the ‘green paint on the Renault’ example in a letter to the Top Doctors years ago with reference to Gwynne the lobotomist forging medical records: ‘Is Gwynne still forging people’s medical records? Yes, Gwynne is still forging people’s medical records. And there is still green paint on the Renault’. And the Top Doctors got very angry with me for taking the piss.

So I am delighted to announce that, in the face of the latest activities of the Top Doctors and their friends the gwerin, yes, there is still green paint on the Renault…

Britain In Agony

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

Former British PM Margaret Thatcher dies at 87 | Globalnews.ca

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

Meet the gangsters’ Moll:

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Miranda always maintained that Woy was his mentor.

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

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

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

British Politics | First Draft

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Moonman’s Torygraph obituary told us that:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Of course he did…

During all-night sittings he wrote his MSc thesis

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

He edited essays on The Violent Society (1987)…

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

Michael Mansfield

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

‘We didn’t know.’

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

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

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

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

 

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

Sir Stephen Sedley

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Sir Alan Meale, a member of the Mansfield community:

Alan Meale

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Sons And Lovers

My post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’ discussed John Tilley, a Labour Councillor and then the Labour MP for Lambeth Central, 1987-83, who was the main or one of the main figures in London responsible for ensuring that numerous kids from inner London were sent into the arms of Dafydd’s gang in north Wales without any awkward questions being asked. There was a whole network of other Labour Party people surrounding John Tilley who also played their part. The London Labour Party at the time was dominated by people who were so desperate to wave their credentials re disadvantage or minorities that there were a plethora of jokes about the ‘loony left’ and ‘Private Eye’ quipped about the feat of Frances Morrell becoming Leader of ILEA without being black, working-class or gay. I mentioned in ‘Lord Snooty The Third’ that the real factor which ensured success for Frances Morrell or indeed anyone else in ILEA at the time was to keep their mouth shut about Dafydd’s gang. As long as one did that, one could be white, posh and heterosexual and still rise to the top of the London left.

Frances Morrell (née Frances Maine Galleway) led ILEA, 1983–87. Frances Morrell was brought up in York and educated at Queen Anne Grammar School in York and Hull University. Frances was brought up in Jimmy Savile country, at a time when Savile had plugged into the organised abuse that had previously existed in the region and turned it into an industry. Well before the time when Morrell was Leader of ILEA, Savile had established links with Dafydd et al. Savile used to visit Bryn Estyn and it is alleged that he witnessed the gang rape of a boy for pleasure.

Hull University has educated many of those both ancient and modern who concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al. See previous posts. The situation was assisted by Prezza being the MP for Hull East, 1970-2010. Prezza is from north Wales and went to Ruskin College when Matt Arnold – the Head of Bryn Estyn-  was teaching there and when Peter Howarth, Arnold’s friend and colleague who in 1994 was jailed for the abuse of boys at Bryn Estyn, was a student at Ruskin. See post ‘A Study In Tyranny’. No wonder Miranda made Prezza Deputy PM, 1997-2007.

 

Frances Morrell worked as a schoolteacher, 1960-70, marrying Brian Morrell in 1964. In 1970 Mrs Morrell became a Press Officer, working for the Fabian Society and the NUS. This brought Mrs Morrell into contact with Tony Benn, who was at the time coming to be seen as the leader of the Labour left and someone with whom Mrs Morrell then agreed on many important issues.

The Chairmen of the Fabian Society when Mrs Morrell was the Press Officer were Jeremy Bray (1970-71); Sir Peter Hall, 1971-72 – Sir Peter Hall the urban town planner as opposed to Sir Peter Hall the luvvie – and Lord Anthony Lester QC, 1972-73.

Jeremy William Bray (29 June 1930-31 May 2002) attended Kingswood School, Bath (1942-48), Jesus College, Cambridge and was a Choate Fellow at Harvard University. He also worked as a research officer at the Department of Applied Economics at Cambridge University. Bray was Labour MP for Middlesborough West, 1962-70; Motherwell and Wishaw, Oct 1974-83; and Motherwell South, 1983-97.

There was a trafficking ring in the Middlesborough region linked with Dafydd’s gang; it was that ring who’s activities erupted in the form of the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal in 1987-88 (see post ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’).

Sir Peter Geoffrey Hall(19 March 1932 – 30 July 2014) was the Bartlett Professor of Planning and Regeneration at The Bartlett School, UCL and President of both the Town and Country Planning Association and the Regional Studies Association. Hall was a planning and regeneration adviser to successive UK Gov’ts. He was Special Adviser on Strategic Planning to the Tory Gov’t, 1991–94 and a member of the Office of the Deputy PM’s -Prezza’s – Urban Task Force, 1998–1999.

Hall was born in Hampstead and in 1940, his family moved to Blackpool. He  attended Blackpool Grammar School and then graduated from St Catharine’s College, Cambridge with a Masters and Doctorate before starting his academic career in 1957 as lecturer at Birkbeck College, University of London. 

On 30 April 2015, Transport for London dedicated a train in recognition of Hall’s contribution to London’s transport infrastructure. The train, Number 378 204, is a five-carriage London Overground train:

If one googles ‘Transport For London’ one of the first results is ‘Transport London – Check Your Route For Delays’.

The Torygraph’s obituary for Sir Peter Hall filled everyone in on the highlights of his biography. Hall was:
Britain’s leading post-war planning intellectual’ who ‘taught generations of professional planners. Once an active Fabian and later a founding member of the Social Democratic Party, he was inspired by Ebenezer Howard and the garden city movement, and highly critical of the “planning by developers” approach promoted by some on the Right — seeing it as a recipe for featureless urban sprawl. Throughout his life he argued for centrally-coordinated planning based on the concepts of urban growth areas, garden cities and new towns. While Hall’s leanings were generally to the Left, he was not afraid to lend his expertise to governments of any persuasion. His idea for urban “enterprise zones” to kick-start development in run-down inner city areas morphed into the Urban Development Corporations which transformed Canary Wharf and other urban centres in the 1980s.

He became special adviser to Michael Heseltine when he returned to the Department of the Environment under John Major, and was the main progenitor of the idea of expanding London eastwards along the shores of the river Thames, accompanying Heseltine in a helicopter over what has become known as the Thames Gateway.

Later he worked with Labour’s Transport Secretary Andrew Adonis on his plans for Crossrail and HS2 and served as a somewhat semi-detached member of Labour’s Urban Task Force under the chairmanship of Lord (Richard) Rogers, whose enthusiasm for high density development on “brownfield” sites he did not share.

Hall also made waves by suggesting at a Town and Country Planning Association conference that Heathrow should be closed and replaced with a new airport in the Thames Estuary, potentially offshore — an idea which was subsequently taken up by the Tory Mayor of London Boris Johnson.

Hall had burst on to the scene as a young academic in 1963 with his book London 2000, a futuristic reimagining of the capital as it entered the new millennium. He argued for a major replanning of London and the south-east, with an elaborate grid of urban motorways, “clean sweep” demolition programmes and new towns. His prototypical London family would live at “Hamstreet”, a Kentish village grown into a new town, criss-crossed by motorways, elevated pavements and cycleways, all rigorously separated and linked to the Continent by a new cross-Channel rail link. He imagined a Brixton whose terraced houses had been “rehabilitated and modernised; their road pattern broken up and sealed from the main traffic streams… On a pedestrian deck above are new shops and offices and a higher education campus.”

If his early optimistic vision bore witness to his deep love of urban life, and was prophetic in predicting the need for congestion charging and the cross-Channel link, it also highlighted the dangers of brashly overconfident state planning. Even Hall came to see the dangers of the approach, admitting that many of the effects of top-down planning in the 1960s and ’70s had been dire.

The son of a clerical officer in the pensions service, Peter Geoffrey Hall was born on March 19 1932 in Hampstead, north London. During the war his family moved to Blackpool, where he was educated at the town’s grammar school (he would later repay the debt by chairing Blackpool’s regeneration agency from 2004 to 2008).

Hall went on take a degree and PhD in Geography at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge. After academic posts at Birkbeck College, London University, and the London School of Economics, he moved to the University of Reading, where he was Professor of Geography from 1968 to 1989 and head of department, also serving as chairman of its School of Planning Studies (1971–77 and 1983–86) and Dean of Urban and Regional Studies (1975–78).

In the 1980s he combined his duties at Reading with a professorship at the University of California, Berkeley, where he continued until taking up the chair of Planning (1992) at University College London’s Bartlett School of Architecture and Planning. He was director of the Institute of Community Studies from 2001 to 2004.

Among appointments to numerous advisory bodies, in 1966 Hall had been invited by the Labour government of Harold Wilson to join the South-East Economic Planning Council. He was in the forefront of the cheerleaders for the development of the new towns of Milton Keynes and Peterborough and, as former industrial cities began to fall derelict in the 1970s, produced papers arguing that one response might be to remove planning restrictions in targeted areas to “recreate the Hong Kong of the 1950s and 1960s inside inner Liverpool or inner Glasgow”.

The Council was abolished in 1979 by Margaret Thatcher, ostensibly because the quango was surplus to requirements — though as Hall later observed: “We had three big agendas in our last years: one, that you would never develop London Docklands without an urban development corporation; two, that London’s third airport should be at Stansted; and three, that the first national transport priority should be the M25 orbital motorway. So she shut us down rapidly to implement all three!”

Hall wrote or co-wrote some 50 books and (by his own estimate) more than 2,000 articles and shorter pieces. Among his better-known works, Great Planning Disasters (1980) was an attempt to answer the question: “How is it we can’t get to the airport, when we can get to the moon?”; Cities in Civilisation (1998) charted the role of the city from ancient Athens to Canary Wharf; Sociable Cities (1998, with Colin Ward) explored the work and influence of Ebenezer Howard; and London Voices, London Lives (2007) drew from interviews with ordinary Londoners carried out for an Economic and Social Research Council-funded project and, among other vignettes, featured Gujarati immigrants from the 1960s in Hounslow wanting to move to leafy Surrey “because of the immigrants”.

His last book, Good Cities, Better Lives (2013), asked the question why Britain does not build enough, and why what it does build is often alienating, ugly and poorly-served by infrastructure, while its European neighbours seem to have cracked the art of building happy and prosperous cities. Citing Freiburg as the outstanding example, Hall observed that continental city planners had “created good jobs, built superb housing in fine natural settings and generated rich urban lives. But not only that: simultaneously these cities have become models of sustainable urban life, minimising energy needs, recycling waste and reducing emissions.”

Planning, he argued, should be grounded in an understanding of the real world; informed by a deep knowledge of history; inspired by a sense of optimistic cultural possibility; and, above all, should remain focused on improving lives and creating places where people actually want to live and work — not what planners think is good for them.

Hall, a Fellow of the British Academy, received numerous awards, including the Founder’s Medal of the Royal Geographical Society and the Gold Medal of the Royal Town Planning Institute.

Knighted in 1998, he was named as a “Pioneer in the Life of the Nation” by the Queen in 2003.

In 1962 he married Carla Wartenberg. The marriage was dissolved in 1966, and the following year he married Magdalena Mróz, who survives him.’

 

Professor Sir Peter Hall would have known much about the massive corruption in planning depts and construction, much of which was linked with the associates of Dafydd’s gang and linked gangs, as described in my post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’. Hall had a great deal to answer for, but every time that his own handiwork bit him on the bum, he blamed someone else.

 

 Anthony Paul LesterBaron Lester of Herne Hill, QC (born 3 July 1936) is one of the many Radical Human Rights barristers who knew about Dafydd et al but said not a word. Lord Lester sits as a Lib Dem. Lester was born into a Jewish family and was educated at the City of London School. He studied at Trinity College, Cambridge and Harvard Law School. Lester was called to the Bar at Lincoln’s Inn. In 1987, he was appointed as a recorder and was in office until 1993. Lester works from Blackstone Chambers. He was appointed adjunct Professor of the Faculty of Law at University College Cork in 2005.

In the 1960s and 1970s Lester was directly involved with the drafting of race relations legislation in Britain. During these periods, he acted as the chair of the legal subcommittee of the Campaign Against Racial Discrimination (C.A.R.D.) and was a member of several organisations working for racial equality such as the Society of Labour Lawyers, Council of the Institute of Race Relations, British Overseas Socialist Fellowship and the National Committee for Commonwealth Immigrants.

In 1968, Lester co-founded the Runnymede Trust and was Chairman of the Runnymede Trust, 1991-93. The Runnymede is a magnet for paedophiles’ friends; a great many with Radical Consciences but who nonetheless ignored what was happening to people at the hands of Dafydd et al were leading lights in the Runnymede. The Runnymede Trust was founded by Dipak Nandy, who was also its first Director. Dipak is the Labour MP Lisa Nandy’s dad! Dipak and his then wife Maggie – Lisa’s mum – were both based in Leicester and associated with Leicester University for years while that institution concealed the paedophile gang operating in Leicester with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Lisa’s relatives have been most helpful to abusers, her granddad was Lord Frank Byers who was a Liberal Chief Whip and a member of the secret panel that the Liberal Party set up to investigate Norman Scott’s complaints about Jeremy Thorpe years before Thorpe’s 1979 trial for incitement to murder. Frank Byers’ response to Norman’s allegations was to hurl insults at him so Norman walked out of the ‘hearing’ and went to the police. See previous posts for further information about Lisa’s ancestors and for my very unpleasant experience when I was BEGGED to go to London by Lisa’s supporters to see Lisa in action.

According to Lisa’s PR, she’s an Asian Woman. She is also so fucking hopeless that she has to read her speeches word for word and so fucking rude that she ignores someone sitting in front of her who develops a screaming migraine which makes them quite ill.

 

Anthony Lester was a SPAD to Woy Jenkins at the Home Office in the 1970s, when Woy was colluding with the serious criminal activities of Dafydd et al. Lester moved with Woy from the Labour Party to found the SDP in 1981. For more details re Woy, see previous posts eg. ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’. On 29 June 2007, Lester was appointed by PM Gordon Brown as a SPAD on constitutional reform to the Secretary of State for Justice, one Jack Straw.

Lester is a member of the Joint Committee on Human Rights. Which must be why he ignored these matters:

Anthony Lester is a Patron of the Family Planning Association. He represented the FPA in a contentious case in N Ireland where it was widely claimed that the FPA were trying to use strategic litigation to introduce liberalised abortion laws into the country. The paedophiles’ friends do like joining bodies which have an interest in the control of other people’s fertility.

For years in north Wales, the Top Doctors conspired to ensure that it was virtually impossible for women to obtain abortions on the NHS, even in the late 1980s, many years after abortion was decriminalised. This gave the Top Docs two advantages. A cosy business arrangement was established between the Top Docs of north Wales and a private abortionist in Chester and referrals were made to anyone who asked as long as they had the money required. For women too poor to afford the fee, the outcome was that they would continue with an unwanted pregnancy. This produced difficulties for many women, but for the kids in care or Empowered Service Users who had become pregnant as a result of Dafydd’s gang raping them, it was a nightmare, because they would then be referred to Dafydd for an ‘assessment’ re obtaining a termination on mental health grounds. Did the ‘assessment’ consist of what such an assessment did in every other area of the UK at the time ie. a conversation? Of course not. In north Wales, the assessment consisted of a stay at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. Where the view was taken that the patient couldn’t get more pregnant so it was party time. Geddit?? See previous posts eg. ‘Tan yn Llyn’, ‘Yours Truly, Angry Mob’ and ‘It’s Bachman Turner Over drive – Not ‘Arf’. I am still waiting for someone to tell us what happened to all the babies, because even after Dafydd’s ‘assessment’, an abortion would be refused but very few people emerged with a baby.

Alongside the unlawful restriction of abortion, the Top Doctors of north Wales urged ‘family planning’ on a whole variety of young women who had not ever enquired about such matters, as well, I was told, on girls in care, including those who did not have boyfriends and showed no interest in acquiring one. I noticed this myself and recently I had an e mail from someone else who found out what was going on who concluded that the girls in care were being ‘prepared for action’ by the age of 14. Yes, that was pretty much the conclusion that I drew. I knew of Empowered Service Users who were sterilised without their consent – in one case the Empowered Service User had no understanding of what the effects would be and no-one bothered to tell her. I imagine that this was routine. This was all completely unlawful and it was very widely known.

I do not remember Lord Lester or anyone else coming forward to help.

Lester’s peerage was announced on 13 August 1993. That was the month in which I was found guilty of ‘staring at a social worker in Safeways’ and was ordered to part with £60 by the Bangor Magistrates Court. The social worker in question, Jackie Brandt, was a member of the paedophile gang and her police statement claimed that I had shouted and sworn at her, such that she feared ‘immediate violence’. She ended up crying in the witness box and admitted that I hadn’t even spoken to her but I had stared at her. There was no investigation for perjury. The year before Anthony Lester bagged his peerage, the North Wales Police closed their investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire, stating that there was ‘no evidence’ of any such thing.

Lord Lester: Dafydd et al operated a massive trafficking organisation which targeted kids in care, psych patients and people with learning disabilities. Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people went through their crazed, dangerous hands after ‘being referred’. I am one of the few survivors that I know of. Furthermore by the time that they targeted me – in the early 1980s – they had an enormous well-oiled machine. That gang did not spend the next 25 years trying to kill Brown and me and forcing me out of every job that I obtained because their gang had died a death and was no longer exerting influence. They were very much still in action. So who else have they done this to Lord Lester and WHERE are all the missing people???

Anthony Lester is the father of Gideon Lester and of Maya Lester QC. Gideon was born in 1972, when Dafydd and John Allen’s trafficking gang were beginning to hit the big time. Gideon himself was in no danger from them – it wasn’t the children of Human Rights barristers who were ‘referred’ to Dafydd, they were kept well away from him by their parents – but Gideon may well know a few people who used the services of those procured by Dafydd’s gang, because Gideon is a luvvie.

Gideon Lester is a ‘performing arts curator, artistic director, educator, and dramaturg’. What a dramaturg is I have no idea. The dramaturd is currently Artistic Director for Theater and Dance at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College and Director of Bard’s undergraduate Theater & Performance program. The dramaturd was Acting Artistic Director of the American Repertory Theatre (A.R.T.), 2007-09 and taught at the Columbia University of the Arts, where he created the Arts Collaboration Lab.

Gideon the dramaturd studied at Oxford University and study dramaturdy at the A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theatre Training at Harvard. He taught dramaturdy at the American Repertory Theatre and playwriting at Harvard.

The dramaturd’s stage translations include Marivaux’s Island of Slaves.

Here’s the Island from where so many of Dafydd’s slaves came:

  • Wales child abuse scandal: key questions answered ...
  • The dramaturd is a productive turd, among his many other stage translations are two texts by the French playwright Michael Vinaver, ‘King’ and ‘Overboard’.
  • Lord Tom King, who greatly benefited from Dafydd’s gang:

The General Secretary of the Fabian Society, 1964-76 was Thomas Arthur Ponsonby, 3rd Baron Ponsonby of Shulbrede (23 October 1930-13 June 1990), who succeeded the title on the death of his father in 1976. Thomas Ponsonby served as a member of Kensington and Chelsea Council, 1956-65 and then as an Alderman, 1964-74. He then became an Alderman of the GLC, 1970-77 and was elected Chairman of the GLC, 1976-77. Ponsonby was elected Labour Chief Whip in the Lords in 1982 and served as Opposition Chief Whip until his death in 1990. Thomas Ponsonby was a Governor of the LSE, 1970-90. 

Ponsonby married twice: firstly to Ursula Mary Fox-Pitt, the daughter of Cdr Thomas Stanley Lane Fox-Pitt of Devon, with whom he had a son and three daughters and secondly to Maureen Estelle Campbell-Teich, the widow of Dr Paul Campbell-Teich of Geneva, Switzerland. He was succeeded by his son, Frederick Ponsonby, 4th Baron Ponsonby of Shulbrede. Frederick sits as a Labour peer and is a regular contributor in Lords debates. He lost his seat in the Lords after the passing of the House of Lords Act 1999, but in 2000 Miranda let him back in by creating him a life peer as Baron Ponsonby of Roehampton, of Shulbrede in the County of West Sussex. Miranda will have realised that Frederick did not just inherit his father’s title, but he will have inherited a great deal of the knowledge re the names and crimes of those Who Knew.

Frederick, son of Thomas who was Where The Action Was:

 

The NUS President, 1969-71, was Jack Straw. Straw was Miranda’s Home Secretary, 1997-2001, throughout the Waterhouse Inquiry and at the time of the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

Digby Jacks, 1971-73. Digby Jacks was a member of the Communist Party when he became President of the NUS. Jacks was raised in Charlton, south London, the son of a building surveyor, and read biology at King’s College, London and gained a teaching diploma at the Institute of Education. He taught for a time at Holland Park Comprehensive School before his election to the NUS Executive in 1969.

Charlton seems to be a rather boring part of London within the Royal Borough of Greenwich and has links with the Royal Navy. The Italian writer Italo Svevo lived in a house on Charlton Church Lane, 1903-13. He had arrived there in his capacity as a director in a Trieste firm selling paint for ships, on whose behalf he established a factory in Charlton’s Anchor and Hope Lane, fulfilling a big contract with the Royal Navy. The foundry of J. Stone & Co moved to Charlton in 1917 and produced 22,000 propellers for the Royal Navy during WW II (its products being fitted to battleships, aircraft carriers, cruisers and numerous smaller vessels), plus propellers and water-tight doors for RMS Queen Mary, RMS Queen Elizabeth and Royal Yacht Britannia. In 1963 Stone’s marine propeller business merged with Manganese Bronze and manufacture moved to Birkenhead. Stone Foundries still operates at Charlton, in a plant established in 1939 to produce aluminium and magnesium light alloy castings mainly for the aircraft industry and production of nails and rivets continues at nearby Stone Fasteners.

Young people are unaware of for how long Britain remained acutely conscious of WW II long after that war had ended. Boys of Digby’s generation were raised on a diet of comics in which most of the stories were about WW II, ‘war films’ were on TV constantly and all older people remembered the war and often talked about it. Everybody had a male relative who had Fought In The War. Britain was dead proud of it all and all less reputable conduct that the Brits may have participated in was air-brushed away. But young men like Digby’s were rebelling and had a bellyful of hearing about it all. Digby was a Commie with big ambitions. He’d have been acutely aware of all that relatively recent Royal Navy and MoD activity in Charlton and he will have known that a few things had gone in which were being kept from the ears of the great British public, such as the activities of Lord Louis Mountbatten and some others in his network (see post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’). Digby will have been digging and Digby will have known that when he was President of the NUS, the biggest wig at ILEA was very, very close to someone who, because of his war service and place in ‘the establishment’ could not have afforded to have been associated with anything like the activities of Dafydd’s gang…I will return to this person later in this post.

The school at which Digby had taught, Holland Park, opened in 1958 and was the flagship for comprehensive education. A number of high-profile socialists sent their children to Holland Park School and it became known as “the socialist Eton”. Hilary and Melissa Benn went to Holland Park, as did Polly Toynbee, Jenny Abramsky and Evgeny Lebedev. Some famous people also taught there, including Bryan Ferry and another member of Roxy Music, Christine Blower who became the General Secretary of the NUT and Mary Marsh, the former Head, became a non-executive Director of HSBC plc and a Governor of the London Business School.

Holland Park had a very loyal fan club but there were also fierce critics. In 1970, George Gale, then the Editor of ‘The Spectator’,  claimed that the girls at Holland Park were running a vice ring at the school. I have no idea whether there was any truth in that allegation, but had the girls wanted to do that, they would have been in an excellent position to do so, being young women living in London who were well-networked to people with money who would want to use their services. While someone like George Gale would be delighted to think that the most terrible things were happening at Holland Park, other people would be desperate to pretend that everything really was fantastic there. I went to a comprehensive school – although not Holland Park obviously – at a time when a lot of people in education would not hear a word against comprehensive schools and believe me, our school was shite, as was the neighbouring glorious comprehensive which Brown attended. They both needed bombs dropping on them, but Brown and me were frequently gunned down by right-on people when we dared say this. From what I can work out, Holland Park was like a lot of comprehensive and not so comprehensive schools in that kids from professional well-connected families did very well, others not so well. Polly Toynbee was a real duffer at school but she’s writing bollocks in ‘The Guardian’ in exchange for a great deal of money nonetheless.

However, if there had have been anything approaching a vice ring in operation at Holland Park, just imagine the influence that Digby would wield over all the people who were desperate that the school should remain a shining example of all that was great about comprehensive education. A lot of people have forgotten that in the early 1970s, a lot of Tories supported comprehensive schools as well, it wasn’t a policy solely encouraged by Shirley Williams as Auberon Waugh always seemed to think. The name of the Education Secretary who oversaw the establishment of more comprehensives than any other Education Secretary was one Margaret Thatcher, who was the Education Secretary when Digby was President of the NUS…

Digby died in October 2011 and his obituary in the Indie stated that:

‘Digby Jacks was instrumental in turning the National Union of Students into an effective lobbying and campaigning body, which stopped the then Education Minister Margaret Thatcher from introducing policies which would have restricted the autonomy and finances of the various students’ unions….

Told you so, Digby had real influence over the Tories…

He was disappointed, but took a pragmatic approach when an increase to the student grant system of an extra £10 million he had negotiated was turned down by his conference on the grounds that it was insufficient and that the demands of the wage campaign would only be met when the “organised working class can defeat the wage freeze”…

So Digby’s ‘members’, who in those days were overwhelmingly drawn from the offspring of the professional middle classes wanted rather more than Digby bagged them; they might have been showing solidarity towards the organised working class but the organised working class probably viewed them as a bunch of indulged twats who had a bloody nerve turning down an extra £10 million on the grounds that it was ‘insufficient’.

On leaving the NUS he became a Divisional Officer for the Association of Scientific, Technical and Managerial Staffs, one of the few NUS presidents to become a full-time union official, staying on to become Assistant General Secretary when it became the Manufacturing, Science and Finance Trade Union. He undertook responsibility for looking after those working in the finance industries.

The ASTMS and the union into which it evolved, MSF, had a great many members who held professional/managerial jobs in the NHS and medical schools but who were not Top Doctors. When I worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School, 1989-91, the MSF reps were corrupt and were using their knowledge of the very serious wrongdoing of the Top Doctors – including the trafficking gang in south London which the Top Docs were facilitating – for their own benefit. They didn’t blow the whistle, they didn’t protect patients from harm, they just held the institution over a barrel to shore up their own positions. There was and still is much wrongdoing in medicine, much of it perpetrated by people who have Lord and Sir in front of their names and a great many people find that life is sweet if they let it be known that they have knowledge of what is going on but won’t say a word, as long as they are invited to the party as well.

 

In 2005, Jacks retired as regional officer for Amicus. Amicus was the UK’s largest private sector union, formed by the merger of MSF and the AEEU, agreed in 2001 and two smaller unions, UNIFI and the GPMU. Amicus also organised in both parts of Ireland and was affiliated to the UK TUC, the Irish Congress of Trade Unions and the Scottish Trades Union Congress. Older people in Amicus knew about the elite vice ring based at the Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast which allegedly included Sir Anthony Blunt and Lord Mountbatten, because Top Doctors were involved (see previous posts). They’d have also had  great deal of crap on events during the Troubles, including the Shoot to Kill policy, the torture of suspects and other matters which were flatly denied by the British Gov’t.

So Digby Spart remained in this not at all left wing union which represented many professional middle class people who were using their knowledge of the wrongdoing of even more senior people to feather their nests until well into Miranda’s regime, a regime in which Jack Straw, Digby’s fellow ‘left winger’ from the NUS of yesteryear, played a key role.

On 1 May 2007 Amicus merged with the TGWU to form UNITE, the biggest trade union in the UK.

On retirement [Digby] served as a Labour councillor in Hounslow

Digby remained a Councillor in Hounslow until 2006.

and became Secretary of the Alliance for Finance, an independent confederation of finance unions and staff representative bodies of financial workers.

The Alliance for Finance is a trade union federation in the UK. The Alliance for Finance was founded in 1996 on the initiative of the Barclays Group Staff Union to encourage more joint campaigning and solidarity between the many trade unions and staff associations covering the banking and financial services sector in the UK.

Not MacDonalds employees, although when he led the NUS, Digby’s desire to give the children of what were in those days mostly middle class people £10 million was rebuffed by those children themselves because they wanted more.

The Alliance’s membership was initially 27 organisations, including the Banking, Insurance and Finance Union, the Communication Workers Union, MSF, the TGWU and USDAW. This quickly rose to 36 organisations, although the 1999 merger between the Banking Insurance and Finance Union, UNiFI and the NatWest Staff Association began a process of consolidation, which has tended to reduce its prominence. In addition, many members have affiliated to the TUC. 

As well as Digby, Gwyn Bates, the former National Secretary of Unifi, Amicus and UNITE, was a previous Secretary of the Alliance for Finance. The current Honorary Vice President of the Alliance for Finance is Frank Needham, former General Secretary of the in-house union at National & Provincial Building Society. Needham was Chair of the Federation of Building Society Staff Associations from 1984-87 and subsequently Vice Chair of the Financial Services Staff Federation from 1993-96.

Baroness Turner of Camden is a former Honorary Vice President of the Alliance for Finance. Muriel Winifred Turner, Baroness Turner of Camden (née Price; 18 September 1927 – 26 February 2018). Between 1970 and 1987, Turner was Assistant General Secretary of ASTMS (later MSF, Amicus and now UNITE). From 1981 to 1987 Turner was a member of the TUC General Council. Muriel was created a life peer in May 1985. She had a particular interest in social welfare and pensions issues, which will be why she kept quiet about the organised abuse in the Camden area with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Muriel bagged that peerage as the threats rained down upon Brown and I and just two months before Lord Donaldson, the Master of the Rolls, upheld Mary Wynch’s appeal re Dafydd and the gang. Mary was represented by Birnberg & Co, who were based in Camden. All colluding politicians as well as legal and health care professionals knew that Mary’s case was about the be heard at the Royal Courts of Justice and a lot of them knew that Brown and I were raising serious concerns about the mental health services in north Wales as well. By the summer of 1985, Alison Taylor was blowing whistles regarding the abuse of kids in care in north Wales.

Muriel was Front Bench Spokesperson on Employment for the Labour Opposition, Oct 1987-96, which covered the years of investigations in north Wales as the region was littered with the corpses of kids in care and Empowered Service Users. The Windbag, John Smith and Miranda sat on all of it.

Muriel was Deputy Speaker of the Lords, 2002-08. Up in north Wales, the legacy of Dafydd’s gang continued, particularly as so many of them were holding senior positions in the public services, the local authorities and the police. Corruption was rampant and complaints about the most serious wrongdoing in the ‘services’ were ignored.

Muriel was a member of the Equal Opportunities Commission, 1982-88. Elspeth Howe served as Deputy Chairman of the EOC, 1975 -79 – when Mary Wynch was unlawfully arrested and imprisoned by Dafydd – and in various other capacities from 1980. Elspeth was married to Geoffrey Howe, a member of Thatch’s Cabinet while Dafydd et al caused havoc. Before he became an MP, Geoffrey Howe was a barrister in Wales/Chester, where along with all of his colleagues, he colluded with Dafydd and the gang. Geoffrey and Elspeth Howe were close friends with Ronnie Waterhouse and his wife and had been since they were very young. See previous posts for more information about the Howes and their numerous links to Dafydd’s associates.

Corrupt and female? Then you are given a position on an Equality Body.

Muriel was also a member of the Occupational Pensions Board, 1977-93; Council member, Occupational Pensions Advisory Service,1989-2007; and Chair, Personal Investment Authority Ombudsman Council 1994-97. She was a ranking member of British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom.

Muriel was Vice-President of Humanists UK and an Honorary Associate of the National Secular Society, both bodies which have enjoyed support from many paedophiles’ friends. On 15 September 2010, Turner, along with 54 other public figures, signed an open letter published in ‘The Guardian’, stating their opposition to Pope Benedict XVI’s state visit to the UK. Claire Rayner was Vice-President (and formerly President) of the British Humanist Association and an Honorary Associate of the National Secular Society. In the weeks leading up to her death, Rayner railed against Pope Benedict’s XVI’s state visit to the UK. Like Muriel, Claire Rayner also knew about Dafydd and the gangs linked to him and remained silent. Like Muriel, Claire collected Brownie points for her Caring NHS ways. See post ‘The Wretched Of the Earth’.

Someone should have reminded Turner and Rayner that people living in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones; those two were in no position to have a go at the Pope, they’d concealed exactly the same criminal activity.

 

 

 

To return to Mrs Morrell. In 1973 Tony Benn invited Morrell to be his Political Adviser should Labour win the next election. Mrs Morrell served as a SPAD to Benn at the Departments of Industry and Energy, 1974-79. Benn was increasingly marginalised as the Parliament went on, but Morrell worked to link him with a network of activists outside Parliament.

Details of the many links that Benn had with Dafydd’s network and those who colluded with Dafydd’s crimes can be read in my post ‘No Cuts’. Some years before he died, I wrote to Tony Benn about the abuse of mental health patients in north Wales. Tony wrote back simply saying ‘Sorry – disability is not my area’. It was a disability rights activist who suggested that I write to Wedgie-Benn, because he ‘has a good reputation on disability rights’.

 

Mrs Morrell was selected to stand as the Labour candidate for Chelmsford in Feb 1974 but she failed to be selected for several Labour seats in the 1979 General Election, including Birkenhead and Manchester Blackley. That will undoubtedly have been as a result of the internal feuding between the left and right of the Labour Party. Mrs Morrell was a firm ally of Benn’s who was loathed by the Labour Party leadership by the late 1970s.

It was Frank Field who was selected as the candidate for Birkenhead, who won the seat in 1979 and he is still there. I have previously blogged my appreciation for Frank Field after he named a group of NHS Directors and Top Doctors on Merseyside who had perpetrated a fraud in which the NHS was relieved of funds in the House and then on his blog. One of those named by Field was the vile Lyn Meadows, a former senior manager of the Welsh Ambulance Trust, who after disgracing herself there turned up as the HR Director at Bangor University, where she disgraced herself all over again. The charming Lyn is now a non-executive Director of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. See previous posts.

Much as I am grateful to Frank Field for exposing the NHS crooks of the Wirral whom no-one else dared touch, it has not escaped my notice that Frank has been sitting in Birkenhead since 1979 and that a branch of Dafydd’s gang ran Merseyside and that many of them are still there (see previous posts). Lyn Meadows and her corrupt Top Doc pals were by no means the only or biggest problems on Merseyside. As a Labour Moderate, surely Frank should at least have said something about the slaying of Michael Carr, the former Labour MP for Bootle by the combined forces of Militant and the Top Docs at Walton Hospital in July 1990? It was acknowledged that the conduct of the staff at Walton fell into the criminal negligence category, but successive DPPs just bounced the case back and forth (see post ‘News From Sicily’).

Frank Field is hated by many of the left and many of his comments in the past suggests that Frank divides the poor very much into the deserving and undeserving. He was Miranda’s Minister for Welfare Reform, 1997-98, but famously fell out with Miranda and returned to the backbenches.

Field was born in Edmonton. His father was a labourer at a factory in Battersea and his mother a teaching assistant. His parents were Conservatives. Field was educated at St Clement Danes School, then in Hammersmith, before studying at Hull University. In his youth Field was a member of the Conservative Party, but left in 1960 because of his opposition to Apartheid in South Africa and joined the Labour Party. In 1964, Field became a FE teacher in Southwark and Hammersmith.

Field served as a Labour Councillor in the London Borough of Hounslow, 1964-68. He was Director of the Child Poverty Action Group, 1969-79 and of the Low Pay Unit, 1974-80.

Once in Parliament, Field was made a member of the Opposition front bench by the Leader Footie as a Spokesman on Education in 1980, but was dropped a year later. Following the appointment of the Windbag as the Labour leader in 1983, Field was appointed as a Spokesman on Health and Social Security for a year. He was appointed the Chairman of the Social Services Select Committee in 1987 and then served as the Chairman of the new Social Security Select Committee, 1990-97.

Not a word about Dafydd and the gang throughout any of it Frank, although Dafydd et al were very busy indeed.

Following the 1997 election, Field joined Miranda’s Gov’t as Minister for Welfare Reform in the DHSS. Blair stated that Field’s mission was to “think the unthinkable”. Field thought that the state should only play a small direct role in the provision of welfare and he disliked means-testing and non-contributory entitlement to benefits, which he believed should only be received after claimants had joined social insurance schemes or mutual organisations such as ‘friendly societies’. There were clashes with Gordon and Harriet, but then everyone clashed with Gordon and Harriet.

Blair later wrote that he was disappointed that so little fresh thinking on welfare reform had emerged from his years as PM. That Blair, is because none of you were prepared to admit that the core of the problem is a deeply corrupted welfare state, run by well-heeled ‘professionals’ who run it to ensure that they benefit rather than The Poor. If The Professionals are allowed to lie, steal, embezzle and abuse The Poor with impunity and the response to The Poor gathering some very damning evidence against The Professionals is to smear The Poor, fit them up for crimes and then refuse them all medical care, then you are going to have very big problems. Which is why the only solutions that anyone ever came up with was to blame The Poor themselves, whether the argument used was one involving Cycles Of Deprivation, Neural Pathways or Genes and run around in circles banging on about social insurance schemes and friendly societies. When somebody stop The Professionals from ruthlessly milking the welfare state for their own ends, you will find that there is plenty there to Help The Poor. Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime Blair. But you refused to target the most serious crime – serious organised crime on the part of the state.

The idiocy continues. The introduction of the welfare reform most closely associated with Blair eventually came to pass in 2008: the replacement of Incapacity Benefit by Employment Support Allowance. The think-tank Reform, on the advisory board of which Field sits, said in its 2016 report on changes to out-of-work sickness benefits that ESA had ‘replicated many of the problems of IB’ and had therefore ‘failed to achieve its objective’. Why are we not surprised?

 

After leaving Ministerial Office, Field continued with his duties as an MP and joined the Ecclesiastical and the Public Accounts Select Committees in the House of Commons.

In June 2010 Field was appointed by Lord Snooty the Third’s Coalition Gov’t to head an independent review into poverty, which proposed adopting a new measure centred around life-chance indicators and increasing funding for early years education. In an interview in September 2012, Field considered Snooty III to have ignored his report, saying “nothing had been done about it” and that it was “very disappointing”. Probably because Snooty III had given every spare penny to Camila Batmanghelidjh after she impressed him with her knowledge of ‘thermostatic emotional regulation’ and the erroneous neural pathways developing in foetuses who are busy gestating in the uteri of The Poor of sahf London.

  • Kids Company founder Camila Batmanghelidjh blames Tory ...
  • A charity boss claims the government is silencing her on ...

 

Here’s Frank brainstorming with like-minded people in 2012:

In October 2013, along with Laura Sandys, Field established the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Hunger and Food Poverty, which he went on to Chair. He also chaired a parliamentary inquiry into hunger commissioned by the APPG which reported in December 2014. Field became the Chair of trustees of Feeding Britain, a charitable organisation set up in October 2015 to implement the recommendations made by the APPG.

Whether Frank takes advantage of the subsidised dining facilities in the House I do not know.

Following the 2015 General Election, it was announced in June 2015 that Frank had been elected to the Chairmanship of the Work and Pensions Select Committee. He was re-elected unopposed to the role following the 2017 General Election.

In December 2017, during a debate on Universal Credit, Field described the impact that Universal Credit changes had had on his constituents. Field spoke of how he had talked a man out of suicide and how one claimant felt “lucky” his family was invited to eat food leftover from a funeral.

Frank clearly wonders where it has all gone so wrong after the many years of his silence…

In March 2015, Field was awarded the Grassroot Diplomat Initiative Honouree for the co-founding of environmental organisation Cool Earth, a charidee that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction as a bottom-up solution to an ageing problem. Meanwhile in the NHS on Merseyside…

In 2017,  Frank Field was awarded the Langton Award for Community Service by the Archbishop of Canterbury “for sustained and outstanding commitment to social welfare”, as a result of Frank’s sealed lips regarding the massive scams that Dafydd’s gang have been working on Merseyside during Frank’s entire Parliamentary career.

Frank is an admirer of Thatch, the lady who was personal friends with at least three active paedophiles linked to Dafydd’s gang ie. Peter Morrison, George Thomas and Jimmy Savile. Although there have been attempts to get Frank to defect to the  Tories, they have been without success.

 In May 2010, Field endorsed Ed Miliband and Uncle Harry’s Leadership challenge.

Field is a practising Anglican, a former Chairman of the Churches Conservation Trust and a member of the Church of England General Synod. I am not someone who believes that every worshipper in the C of E is an abuser, but there has been a long-standing problem of denial within the institution.

Field wants to reducing the time-limit within which women can have an abortion and to strip abortion providers such as Marie Stopes of their counselling role and handing it to organisations not linked to abortion clinics. With the Conservative MP Nadine Dorries, Field has been vocal in two defeated attempts to legislate for such a reform in Parliament. I too am a little concerned about the domination of abortion providers in the field of providing counselling for pregnant women, because they tend to be very good at helping women who want abortions but not so good at assisting women who with to continue with a pregnancy in difficult circumstances. However, Field, Mad Nad and their fellow travellers never mention the frank abuses on the part of Top Doctors that continue with regard to their ‘care and counselling’ of vulnerable pregnant women and Frank, Nad et al often seem to not quite understand just how difficult the situations of some women are. ‘Go and see your GP!’ So what do you do if you’re a kid in care who’s been raped by one of the staff and the GP is colluding with the trafficking gang which the local Social Services are facilitating then Frank/Nad?

Here’s Ioan Bowen Rees, Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council, 1980-91:

Frank Field has never married and has not been blessed with children. 

 

Kenneth Eastham was selected as the Labour candidate for Manchester Blackley and he won the seat and remained there until he retired in 1997. Eastham was a planning Engineer for GEC at Trafford Park,  Manchester, and a Manchester City Councillor for eighteen years. Eastham was a Councillor when Dafydd’s old mate Dr Bob Hobson relocated to Manchester from the Maudsley and ran a trafficking ring in the Manchester area (see post ‘The Mentor’). Tony and Sadie Francis joined old Hobson and then made their way to the North Wales Hospital to join Dafydd, as did the genocidal Dr Tony ‘Do Nothing’ Roberts a few years later.

Ken Eastham is very elderly but still with us, so perhaps he could let us know why he wanted that safe Labour seat in 1979, five years after Hobson arrived in Manchester. Mary Wynch was languishing in Denbigh in 1979, having been illegally imprisoned there by Dafydd. Dafydd knew that he was in trouble before Mary emerged, because Mary had been doing battle with Dafydd and the gang since the early 1970s and she already had lawyers lined up to act for her. Previous posts have described how Dafydd et al began sending up paedophiles’ in distress flares in 1979 to summon the cavalry from across the political spectrum.

 

 

Now to return to Mrs Morrell. After the Labour Gov’t left office in 1979, Mrs Morrell helped to create the ‘Rank and File Mobilising Committee’, through which the left organised to bring changes in the Party. ‘Private Eye’ called her Tony Benn’s ‘hatchet-woman’. In the run-up to the 1981 GLC elections, Mrs Morrell was chosen to fight Islington South and Finsbury and on election formed part of the left faction in support of Red Ken.

At the time there was that huge paedophile ring operating in the children’s homes in Islington…

Jack Straw was Little Nell’s Deputy on Islington Council’s Housing Committee, but then Jack pops up everywhere behind someone who is ignoring a trafficking gang. Jack was Battling Barbara Castle’s adviser when he was a whippersnapper and Babs was concealing the wrongdoing of the Top Doctors et al when Babs was Secretary of State at the DHSS. Babs certainly chose her juniors with care, Dr Death was one of her junior Ministers as was dear old Lord David Ennals, both big pals of some of those we know and love in north Wales. See previous posts.

 

Mrs Morrell’s background as a teacher led her to spend most time on ILEA, which came with membership of the GLC. She was chosen as Deputy Leader of the new left leadership of ILEA under Bryn Davies. Mrs Morrell became unsatisfied with Bryn’s leadership –  she considered it ‘weak’ – and built support for a change through the GLC Women’s Group; in April 1983 she challenged Bryn and was elected as ILEA  leader.

Under Mrs Morrell, ILEA became concerned with promoting gender equality. I suppose that ILEA could have argued that both boys and girls were being abused and trafficked. The authority was severely criticised for what the right regarded as propaganda in the schools that it administered. Many of the policies of the Davies leadership were continued, which included the high spending: ILEA deliberately set an illegally high budget for 1985. Thatch’s Gov’t was proposing to abolish the GLC and wanted to abolish ILEA as well but found it impractical to do so. However, new legislation allowed the Gov’t to limit  ILEA’s budget and it did so. ILEA was helped by a bail-out from the GLC for one year.

The abolition of the GLC in 1986 meant that something had to be done to provide for future elections to the ILEA. It was decided that there would be direct elections. Mrs Morrell led Labour into the campaign and with London hostile to the abolition of the GLC, Labour won an easy victory. Mrs Morrell was re-elected quite narrowly herself, as the SDP put up a strong challenge.

Despite Red Ken’s best efforts, the GLC was abolished on 31 March 1986, along with the West Midlands, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Tyne and Wear, West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire Councils. All of these Councils had trafficking rings operating within their welfare services and some of them were sending a lot of kids in their care to Dafydd et al in north Wales. No-one said a word about this among the ranting both against and in favour of these Councils over a period of years, although a great many people knew what was going on.

On 31 March 1986, BBC News reported that ‘Thousands of people have taken part in festivities to mark the historic final hours of 97 years of local rule in London. A throng of 250,000 people have gathered on the South Bank in London, home to the Greater London Council, which will not exist from midnight tonight. Festivities will end with the largest display of fireworks ever seen in the city after a week of events costing £250,000.’

Well Red Ken and his mates transferred millions into the pockets of Dafydd’s gang, what’s another £250k on fireworks?

  • Ken Livingstone

 

Dafydd et al were getting very jumpy in 1986, because a contingent of honest police had begun to close in on them. Oliver Brooke, Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School and one of the biggest players in the pan-European paedophile ring which Dafydd et al were running was jailed in Dec 1986. The paedophiles’ friends will have known that Ollie had been caught by the time that the GLC vanished after that fireworks display. Fortunately for Ollie and his associates, the legal establishment was on their side and Lord Justice Geoffrey Lane allowed  Ollie’s appeal in May 1987 and Ollie was released shortly after on the grounds that the poor man had suffered enough and his vast collection of kiddie porn was no more than the equivalent of a collection of ‘cigarette cards’ no less. See previous posts eg. ‘Oliver!’

By the time that the GLC and Dafydd’s other business partners disappeared, Alison Taylor and I could not have been yelling more loudly that something terrible was happening in north Wales and Mary had won her case…

Dafydd and the gang remained in business and witnesses continued to be harassed, threatened and found dead. Including my housemate Anne Vernon, who was killed in April 1986.

Whatever the security services thought that they were doing in the face of all this, it really was woefully inadequate and no-one will ever convince me otherwise. I look forward to the resignation of C or Z or Dame Stella Rimington or whoever was responsible for this cock-up, along with their statement that they have failed and will learn lessons. Then they can go and do it all over again. That seems to be the model of practice.

Jesus Christ, it wasn’t rocket science was it.

 

Mrs Morrell lost her leadership of ILEA in 1987 by 23 votes to 22, continuing a tradition of internal deselection established by both of her predecessors.

Mrs Morrell became secretary of the Speaker of the House of Commons Commission on Citizenship in 1988. That Speaker was Bernard Weatherill, who had succeeded the  child molester George Thomas as Speaker in 1983, when Thatch gave George Thomas a Viscountcy. Mrs Morrell was a senior research fellow at Queen Mary and Westfield College, 1991-92 and then became Executive Director of the Institute for Citizenship Studies.

Mrs Morrell was lately joint Chief Executive of ArtsInform, ‘which tries to build relationships between schools and colleges and professional artists.’

Mrs Morrell’s husband Brian committed suicide in April 2009 – although I have not found out about the circumstances – and Mrs Morrell herself suffered from increasingly poor health and died from cancer in January 2010. Frances and Brian Morrell died as angry demands were being made by many for another investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. Dafydd’s gang sent up distress flares which caused an influx of paedophiles’ friends to stand for and get elected to the Welsh Assembly (see post ‘The Battle Of The Cowshed’), including Jenny Rathbone, a former Islington Councillor, journalist and member of the family who established a charity that supplied the paedophiles with help when some of them were actually caught (see post ‘The Mentor’).

I can imagine that some unpleasant things could have been happening to the Morrells as people who had previously been at the scene of the crime and could name names; Dafydd’s gang have never showed any loyalty to those who concealed their crimes when the going gets tough.

The other day I asked Brown why he thought that after so many accessories having been found dead someone hadn’t actually murdered Dafydd. Brown quipped that Dafydd was obviously getting there first. Furthermore Dafydd has/had Top Docs working for him and apart from Brown and me, no-one ever suspects them. ‘Ooh thank you for the prescription doctor, I’ll take this lethal cocktail straight away…’ ‘I need THAT particular treatment?? It sounds unpleasant and ineffective, but ooh you doctors know what you’re doing, I mean docs who harm their patients aren’t allowed to practise are they???’ ‘Ooh I’ve heard of Dr Jones, he’s Europe’s Leading Forensic Psychiatrist isn’t he, I read it in the Bangor and Anglesey Mail in 1994, I know I’ll be in safe hands…’

‘Now don’t you worry dear, we’ll look after you.’

In the wake of the abolition of the GLC as well as those other metropolitan Councils in 1986, there were a great many people Who Knew who all had to be found new jobs in order to stop them ever mouthing off. Many of them are still alive and still in the system. Furthermore as they all have a history of being Little Things Hitting Each Other, at times of Paedophiles In Distress, a few of them tend to die.

Tony Travers of the LSE wrote an obituary for Mrs Morrell which was published in ‘The Guardian’ in 2010:

‘…She was one of Tony Benn’s two trusted advisers during the 1974-79 period (the other being Francis Cripps), providing political links to the rest of government as well as connections to various groups and committees on the far left of the party. She won the Islington South and Finsbury seat for Labour in the 1981 Greater London council (GLC) elections, being one of the cabal who then, within 24 hours, replaced Andrew McIntosh as council leader with Ken Livingstone.

Francis Cripps is an economist who was the grandson of Sir Stafford Cripps, Clement Attlee’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, 1947-50.

I do think it’s lovely that the Labour Party have presented such a challenge to inherited privilege.

National Eisteddfod: Dafydd Iwan to play for one last time ...

  • BBC NEWS | UK | Wales | Welsh language paper is unveiled

 

 

Morrell was a large, forceful and controversial woman who had the capacity to polarise views. Yet, when she became leader of the Inner London Education Authority (Ilea) in 1983, she found herself in the position of using this powerful personality in a grim struggle with the left-led Inner London Teachers’ Association (ILTA) over staff redeployment – an uncomfortable position for someone long associated with progressive politics at a time when the new left was in the ascendant in London and other cities.

Mrs Morrell didn’t manage to mention the en masse organised abuse of children among all that discussion and implementation of progressive politics.

….Morrell worked in government with Benn and Cripps to produce economic policies that involved worker co-operatives, an alternative economic strategy, import restrictions and currency controls. This team was devoted to expanding the scale and scope of the state.

I think that Mrs Morrell, Wedgie Benn and Sir Stafford’s grandson lost the battle somewhere along the way, although there was an expansion of the corrupt state, no matter what Thatch maintained happened after 1979.

Morrell worked with other political advisers including Jack Straw (Barbara Castle’s adviser) to provide the “dissenting ministers’ secretariat” during the 1975 European Economic Community referendum campaign. Benn and other ministers were given their freedom to lobby for a “no” vote. Benn’s diaries show that he trusted Morrell’s advice and that both were suspicious of the civil service and the security services. She was seen as a very political adviser during a government that radically expanded the number of such beneath-the-radar outsiders. No 10 was, towards the end of the Callaghan government, concerned that she might be in breach of her status as an adviser. She certainly worked hard to manoeuvre Benn towards the Labour leadership.

Livingstone and Morrell, though both seen as on the radical left of Labour at the time, were not on good terms. The former attacked the latter in the pages of Tribune over the manner of the challenge to Davies.

Running Ilea during the 1980s was not easy. There was the struggle with the Thatcher government over rate-capping that could have had serious consequences for senior figures such as Morrell who wanted, in protest over capping, the GLC to refuse to set a rate. The ILTA made life difficult for what was, by any standards, an administration with radical leftwing leanings. There were random strikes and high levels of absenteeism, often over the need to redeploy teachers.

As with the civil wars within the mental health services, the kids who were supposed to be the focus of ILEA were lost in the middle of all this…

She was then herself deposed as Ilea leader by the more emollient and mainstream Neil Fletcher in 1987.

She held a number of positions within arts organisations, including being a member of the board of directors of Sadler’s Wells and of the NCVQ performing arts advisory committee. Active in pursuing feminist issues and policy at County Hall, she was also a long-serving member of the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy.

Last year, her husband Brian, whom she had married in 1964, took his own life at their home in Islington.

Tony Benn added to Mrs Morrell’s obituary: 

‘It is not often recognised that the position of secretary of state can be a very lonely one, surrounded by ministerial colleagues who are busy with their own work, MPs who are cut off from knowing what goes on, and from the massive government departments which they run, which often have an agenda of their own. Frances and her colleague Francis Cripps maintained contact with ministerial advisers in other departments, with Labour backbenchers, with the trade union leadership and indeed almost all those with whom I came in contact. She was brilliant in performing these tasks and her judgement was always shrewd and relevant’.

Mrs Morrell and Francis Cripps Knew and kept the lid firmly nailed down on everything.

Francis Cripps now lives in Thailand.

 

An obituary written by Stuart Weir for Mrs Morrell also appeared on the website ‘Open Democracy’:

‘Frances Morrell who has just died at the age of 72 was a conviction politician of great energy, imagination, courage and commonsense. She was one of Tony Benn’s two close advisers (the other being Francis Cripps) while he was Secretary of State for industry and energy from 1974-79, and then became Labour leader of the Inner London Education Authority (ILEA) in the 1980s. She had long been active in the left of the Labour Party and was press officer for the NUS, Fabian Society and (unofficially) Tony Benn before joining him in government. Benn relied heavily on her loyalty, judgment and advice.

There are hints in her obituaries that she was part of the ‘hard left’, the trotskyist factions who disfigured Labour Party politics during the 1970s and 1980s. This was not the case. She regarded them (and their ‘soft left’ fellow travellers) with contempt long before her bruising struggles as leader of ILEA with the hard left teachers’ association in Inner London.

Morrell was a social democrat, or democratic socialist, who had a strong commitment to improving life for working class people. With Michael Meacher and me, she founded the Labour Coordinating Committee after 1979, with the aim of creating a thoughtful left programme for the party. The LCC soon became embroiled in the bitter feuding over intra-party democracy and she was one of the very few of us who stood firm for the principle of ‘one member, one vote’ against the Trotskyist demands that only members of constituency party general committees should be enfranchised (they being easier to control). It was not a popular place to be in left Labour circles.

Indeed, her contribution in and out of government could have been far greater; and what she did contribute will not be fully recognised. For Frances was an imposing and forceful figure who was very sure of her own gifts and less so about those of others, friends or foes. She was more respected than liked and after being deposed as ILEA leader in 1987 she left active politics and became active in citizenship and arts bodies.’

Stuart Weir was formerly Editor of the New Statesman, when he launched Charter 88 and Director of Democratic Audit at Essex University.

Weir’s obituary for Mrs Morrell on ‘Open Democracy’ precipitated a rush of rude comments as Little Things Started Hitting Each Other. Contributions from people occupying various positions on the left fumed at Weir’s choice of words and effectively accused him of being a capitalist running dog.

Another contributor to ‘Open Democracy’ observed that ‘The Times’ and The Torygraph didn’t think that Mrs Morrell was worth an obituary. Which just goes to show that the ‘far left’ don’t spend as much time as they should reading The Torygraph, because The Torygraph did publish an obit for Mrs Morrell and whoever wrote it seemed to believe that she did have some positive qualities, rather than simply being a dangerous idiot who colluded with a trafficking gang. The Torygraph even accompanied their obit with a photo of Mrs Morrell in her youth, looking rather Joan Baez:

‘Frances Morrell, who died on January 10 aged 72, was a controversial leader of the Inner London Education Authority (Ilea) from 1983 to 1987; she promoted anti-racism, sex education and gender consciousness in the capital’s schools before disillusioning Left-wing comrades by advocating higher standards.

 

Brinley Howard Davies, usually known as Bryn Davies (born 17 May 1944) preceded Mrs Morrell as Leader of ILEA, 1981-83. Davies graduated from Hull University and qualified as an actuary. He worked in the pensions industry, becoming a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries in 1974. Davies worked for the TUC as Pensions Officer from that year, advising member unions on occupational and state pensions. With this came membership of the Occupation Pensions Board. He was also elected to Lambeth Borough Council in 1978 and became Deputy Leader. At the time, kids in the care of Lambeth were being abused both in children’s homes in Lambeth and in children’s homes in north Wales, where a great many were sent on long term placements (see eg. post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’).

At the beginning of 1980 the opportunity arose for Bryn Davies to go into London-wide politics in a by-election for the GLC at Vauxhall, which he won easily as a Labour candidate. With membership of the GLC came ex officio membership of ILEA. Davies aligned himself with the left under Red Ken.

The 1981 elections brought a left majority to London and on 9 May 1981 Bryn Davies was chosen to be the new Leader of ILEA at the AGM of the ILEA Labour Group, ousting Sir Ashley Bramall, although Bramall wanted to remain Leader. Mrs Morrell became Deputy Leader, replacing Mair Garside. I mentioned Mair Garside in a previous post and speculated on whether she was Welsh, Mair being a Welsh name that would not be known to many English people who think that it might be nice to give their daughter a Welsh name.

A scrap then broke out because the Labour right thought this takeover had been brutal and several of them decided to make life difficult for the new administration. Among the first decisions taken under Bryn Davies’ control was to allow GLC teachers paid leave to attend the People’s March for Jobs, but a rebellion by right-wing Labour councillors defeated the plan. ILEA continued the comprehensivisation policy and intensified it by ending ‘streaming’ within schools and insisted that Church schools end all selection as well.

The Conservatives nationally criticised the cost of schooling under ILEA, which was the highest in the country. Thatch – and most of the Tories – hated ILEA, indeed Thatch had hated ILEA since she was Education Secretary, 1970-74, under Ted Heath. Acres of print in the right wing press were devoted to the excesses of ILEA, particularly when the ‘loony left’ took it over and there was substantial concern about what was happening in some schools under ILEA. Yet no-one mentioned the transfer of hundreds of children from inner London to children’s homes and residential schools in north Wales, which charged a great deal of money for each ‘placement’, such placements frequently accompanied by complaints of the most serious abuse. London Councillors and lawyers heard about many, many complaints and the situation was ignored by everyone, although the Tories fuming at the money being spent by ILEA knew that much of that money was being spent on placements for children in north Wales.

Bryn Davies never had to deal with the abolition of ILEA – although everyone on the left in London at the time was panicking at the thought of Thatch advancing towards ILEA with her axe – because Mrs Morrell used her connections within the GLC Women’s Group to depose him in April 1983. Davies remained as a backbencher long enough to prove his left-wing credentials by supporting the strategy – subsequently held to be illegal – of refusing to set a GLC rate as a protest at rate capping.

Bryn Davies went back into pensions in 1985 as a Director of Pensions and Investment Research Consultants. Later that year he was appointed as a Research Actuary at Bacon and Woodrow and resigned from the GLC and ILEA. In 1989 Davies set up Union Pension Services Ltd., a consultancy on occupation pensions specialising in those for trade unions. He continues to work in and write about pensions. Perhaps Bryn would like to write a little bit about why so much money was spent sending children into the arms of a gang of paedophiles by people who yelled loudly about equality and those suffering in Fatcher’s Britain.

Bryn Davies’s predecessor who was knifed and thrown overboard in 1981 by Bryn’s supporters, Sir Ashley Bramall, had been Leader of the ILEA since 1970.

Sir Ernest Ashley Bramall (6 January 1916-10 February 1999) was Labour MP for Bexley, 1946-50. Bramall’s family were wealthy merchants from Hampshire, but his mother was a socialist who influenced her son to support the left. Ashley attended Westminster School briefly, before moving to Canford School. He studied at Magdalen College, Oxford in the 1930s. Bramall was elected to Chair the Oxford University Labour Club in 1938. At Oxford, he was active in the Oxford Union Society, where he often debated with Ted Heath. Bramall was Treasurer of the Union in 1939.

On the outbreak of war, Bramall joined the Northampton shire Yeomanry, into which he was commissioned in 1941. He transferred to the Reconnaissance Corps later the same year and also served at the Army Staff College in Camberley, being promoted to Major. After the end of the war, Bramall served in Germany in the Allied administration.

Bramall won Bexley for Labour in 1946, but narrowly lost the seat in 1950 to Ted Heath, with whom Bramall always remained personally friendly.

Ashley Bramall had already taken up a career outside politics by reading for the Bar and in 1949 was called to the Inner Temple.

Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss was a member of the Inner Temple. Butler-Sloss was the sister of Lord Michael Havers, who in his capacity as Attorney General under Thatcher, blocked the prosecution of a number of public figures for child sex offences, including the diplomat Sir Peter Hayman. Butler-Sloss herself concealed the extent of the wrongdoing of Dafydd’s Friends In The North when she Chaired the Inquiry into the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal (see post ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’). Butler-Sloss was of course one of the early Chairs of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse who resigned after days because she was just so compromised. It was also revealed that Butler-Sloss, an enthusiastic and life-long Anglican, attempted to ensure that the Church of England was not part of the IICSA. Sir Simon Hughes, who benefited from the abuse and threats from associates of Dafydd’s gang to which Peter Tatchell was subjected in the 1983 Bermondsey by-election campaign, is also a member of the Inner Temple. See post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’.

 

Sir Ashley Bramall was active in local politics in the Metropolitan Borough of Westminster, where the local boundaries made it extremely difficult for Labour candidates to win seats. In the mid-1950s the Council decided to change the boundaries, using the Rateable Value of property. The local Labour Party, under Bramall’s guidance and advocacy, challenged this method at a public inquiry and persuaded the Boundary Commissioner to accept a new scheme for the wards which Bramall had drawn up.

So Ashley seems to have exerted a great deal of influence over someone somewhere who’s interests might to be thought to be inconsistent with Ashley’s interests.

After this boundary change took effect in 1959 the Labour Party won enough seats to elect Ashley Bramall as an Alderman. He was elected as a Councillor to the new Westminster City Council; when Bramall lost his seat in 1968 the Conservative group blocked his election as an Alderman. In 1961 Bramall was elected to the London County Council and made the transition to the GLC when that body was set up in 1964. Ashley Bramall was one of eight people to serve as a member of the GLC throughout its existence.

Previous posts have explained how the London County Council ignored organised abuse and how the GLC colluded with it when business boomed after John Allen opened the Bryn Alyn Community in 1969.

Membership of the GLC made Bramall an ex officio member of ILEA and Bramall specialised in education issues. He was Chairman of ILEA, 1965-67 and was then chosen to lead the Labour Group. Labour won back control in 1970 and Bramall then became Leader of ILEA. Just as John Allen opened for business in north Wales.

Bramall’s ‘strong leadership’ did not prevent the scandal over the William Tyndale Junior School in Islington in 1975, which was centred upon the ‘progressive teaching methods’ at William Tyndale. Allegations were made of badly behaved out of control kids gambling their lunch money and ordering the teachers about. While things did seem to have gone badly wrong at the school – the events resulted in a 1976 speech by Jim Callaghan advocating a return to more ‘traditional methods’ of teaching and the scandal was thought to have contributed to the eventual abolition of ILEA – it is curious that Islington had a major diplomatic incident on its hands when the juniors ran riot, not because of the presence of a trafficking gang who murdered some of their victims.

In spite of the events at William Tyndale School, Bramall received a knighthood in 1975. Under Bramall, Labour retained control of ILEA in 1977, despite losing the GLC election.

 

When Thatch became PM she put pressure on local authorities, especially on ILEA, to cut spending. Bramall was opposed but was not willing to go along with the far left’s demands for an outright confrontation and legal defiance. This made the left determined to replace him, which happened when Labour won GLC control in 1981 with a new left-wing majority. Knowing this was going to happen, Bramall left a note to his replacement on his cleared desk before going to the meeting where the vote for leader was to take place.

Bramall remained on the authority ‘and it was a sign of the respect which the left had for him that they were prepared to choose him as figurehead Chairman of the Authority.’ The scrapping bastards of the ILEA had no respect for anyone, they were ripping each others jugulars out constantly, there was no loyalty to anyone on the part of anyone else. If they allowed Bramall to remain as a figurehead, it will have been because it was necessary for the benefit of everyone. Probably because Thatch was going to abolish them all and they all needed to stick together and put someone with crucial influence in Thatch’s circle at the helm to protect them all. Ashley Bramall was close to someone who did indeed have a great deal of influence over Thatch and who became of towering importance to Thatch’s Gov’t when the Falklands War began, as I will explain shortly.

In his retirement, Bramall held many public appointments, including Directorships of the Museum of London, Chairman of the Westminster College of Further Education and Honorary Secretary of the Theatres Advisory Council. He remained active in local politics as Chair of his local party branch and surprised many by his willingness to undertake menial tasks such as delivering leaflets while in his 80s. In 1996 he acted as Agent in a local by-election which saw Mair Garside, formerly his Deputy at ILEA, elected to Westminster City Council.

Bramall appeared on ‘Mastermind’ while Leader of ILEA in 1976 and was an active member of the Masterminders’ club. His second wife, Gery Bramall, who was a fellow Westminster Councillor, was also on the show.

By 1976, there had been many complaints about the abuse of children in children’s homes in north Wales, including children placed there by inner London authorities. No-one stopped the transportation of kids into the arms of Dafydd, John Allen et al and at the time, Dafydd and the gang were engaged in a rapid expansion of their business. The man who led one of the authorities which was trading in people with Dafydd, as well as that man’s wife, were able to star on BBC TV without fear that a voice might pipe up and tell everyone over what exactly Ashley Bramall was presiding. But then Jimmy Savile was busy presenting children’s TV shows and patronising adverts about fastening one’s seat belt while he molested children and vulnerable people in health and social care settings, including in children’s homes in north Wales.

 

Sir Ashley Bramall had a brother, Edwin, known as Dwin. Dwin is now known as Field Marshal Lord Bramall. In 1981 when the left-wing members of ILEA who had just deposed Sir Ashley had so much respect for him that they reinstated him as a ‘figurehead Chairman’, Edwin Bramall was Chief of General Staff ie. the Head of the British Army. Beat that for armour plating.

The Lord Bramall
Lord Bramall.jpg

Lord Bramall in the robes of a Knight Companion of the Order of the Garter, June 2006

Field Marshal Edwin Noel Westby Bramall, Baron Bramall, served as Chief of the General Staff, the professional head of the British Army, 1979-82, and as Chief of the Defence Staff, professional head of the British Armed Forces, 1982 -85.

On 4 March 2015 officers of the Metropolitan Police searched Bramall’s house near Farnham as part of the Operation Midland child sexual abuse investigation. Bramall released a statement after the search, saying: “Categorically, never have I had a connection or anything to do with the matters being investigated.” On 30 April 2015 under the same investigation Lord Bramall attended a police station in Surrey by appointment. Officers interviewed him for two hours but did not charge or arrest him. On 15 January 2016, the police confirmed that there was insufficient evidence to bring any charges and he would face no further action. Bramall’s wife Lady Bramall died in July 2015, without knowing that he would not be charged. After what ‘The Guardian’ described as a “chorus of calls” for an official apology to Lord Bramall, in October 2016, the Met Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe apologised to Bramall. On 1 September 2017 it was reported that the Metropolitan Police had paid substantial compensation to Bramall for having raided the his home “after accepting that the searches had been unjustified and should never have taken place.”

As with the compensation payments to Leon Brittan’s widow and Paul Gambaccini for the same reason, I am utterly confused by this. If these folk are indeed innocent of course I can understand why they are fuming that they have been questioned and their properties have been searched. But may I remind them that this happened to those of us who tangled with Dafydd and the gang CONSTANTLY, we spent most of our lives sitting in police cells only to be later told that all charges had been dropped. Numerous people perjured themselves again and again in open court in attempts to have me convicted and imprisoned and as case after case collapsed, the perjurers just filed out of the door and no more was said. I lost my home, I lost jobs, I and others suffered far, far more than Gambaccini, Bramall and Brittan. Harvey Proctor lost everything like we did which is why Harvey called a press conference. Harvey is now suing… No-one has ever apologised to us or paid us compensation.

Get over it Lord Bramall. Yes, it is awful to stand accused of something that you have not done but it happens across the UK every day to many people; it’s called ‘being acquitted’. As for your wife dying without knowing that you were to be cleared, that is very sad. Yet victims of Dafydd et al died in Risley Remand Centre before they were cleared; being on remand they were, in law, innocent. People died in the hospitals of north Wales and ‘in the community’ when they had not even been accused of any offence. In April 1992, five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal were murdered by a firebomb (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’). How you ever managed to extract apologies and compensation when you didn’t even get as far as standing in the dock having bent barristers accusing you of lying I do not know. Can you let the rest of us in on your magic formula please?

While Lord Bramall may well be completely innocent, his brother had a great deal of knowledge of the sort of crimes that Lord Bramall was questioned about. Sir Ashley knew that kids were being grossly abused in children’s homes in north Wales on his watch and he did not stop it. Ashley Bramall remained silent about the most serious crime until the day that he died on 10 Feb 1999. Almost exactly one year to the day before the publication of the Waterhouse Report. Ashley Bramell’s lips remained sealed throughout high profile investigations into the abuse of children in Islington, in Lambeth, in the East End and in North Wales.

Brown’s dad was Colonel of one of the Signal Regiments. He was found dead, in bed, unexpectedly, during the Waterhouse Inquiry. Two of the Angels at Ysbyty Gwynedd who threatened me and unlawfully refused to treat me and who then threatened two members of the public who raised concerns at the way that I was being treated are active in the TA; one of them, Stephen Gallagher, attained the rank of Major. Dafydd has for many years been lauded for his work with veterans and charidees/welfare associations concerned with the British Army. See post ‘Feet In Chains’. Dafydd has managed to get Army pensions for ‘veterans’ who have not been in the British Army.

None of this makes Lord Bramall guilty, but it does mean that a great many people known to Lord Bramell have done a great many things that they should not have done.

Lord Bramall is a former President of Marylebone Cricket Club and now Honrary Life Vice-President of the MCC, of which Jeffrey Archer and John Major were keen members. Lord Robert Alexander QC, the barrister who acted for Tuppence when Tuppence sued the Daily Star in 1987 and perjured himself for which Tuppence went to prison many years later, has been both the President and Chairman of the MCC (see post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’). When he was young, Tuppence worked for the UNA. Dafydd is involved with the UNA. See post ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’.

Lord Bramall is a also a Vice-President of the welfare organisation SSAFA Forces Help. Dafydd submitted a memorandum written on 18 March 2008 as evidence to Parliament re ‘PTSD and cross border issues’. In this memorandum, Dafydd waxed lyrical about all the work that she has done to assist veterans with PTSD over many years, including the work at Dafydd’s now closed ‘nursing home’ in Llandudno, Ty Gwyn. Dafydd provided a list of all the organisations who referred ‘veterans’ to him for ‘treatment’ at Ty Gwyn. One of the organisations listed was SSAFA.

Do you know Dr Dafydd Alun Jones Lord Bramall? If you do not, do you not think that SSAFA should have taken a long hard look at his track record before they referred people to him?

 

Lena Moncrieff Townsend preceded Sir Ashley Bramall as Leader of the ILEA, 1969-70. Lena was born in Cairo, the daughter of a wealthy expatriate British family. She was sent to England to Downe House, a girls’ boarding school which specialised in the daughters of colonial servants. She attended Somerville College, Oxford and the University of Heidelberg.

During WWII Lena Townsend was an organiser for the Women’s Voluntary Service and the Land Army. In 1955 she was first elected to the London County Council for her home seat of Hampstead and took a special interest in the Education Committee. Townsend was chosen to be Leader of the Opposition on the Education Committee from the early 1960s.

Townsend was an unsuccessful candidate in the first GLC election of 1964, being defeated in Camden. However, in 1967 she was more fortunate and won, which brought with it membership of the LCC Education Committee’s successor body, ILEA. The Conservatives had won narrow control of ILEA and Townsend ran for the Leadership, but lost to Christopher Chataway, who was the preferred candidate of the Conservative Party nationally.

Chataway made Townsend his Deputy, as well as Chairman of the Schools Committee. The two worked well as a team and both were clearly on the left of the Conservative Party. Townsend supported ‘Schools Councils’ for pupils to take some responsibility for the management of their schools. She was nominated as a member of the Race Relations Board Conciliation Committee for London in 1968. Townsend was a founder member of the Conservative Group for Europe.

In 1969 Christopher Chataway was elected to Parliament and stepped down from the ILEA Leadership. Townsend was chosen as his successor, and largely continued his moderate policies. When morality campaigner Mary Whitehouse attacked a BBC sex education film, Townsend defended it. She was however faced with a strike of teachers in November that year over a national pay claim.

In 1970, Townsend fought for re-election as Leader of ILEA, but Labour regained control. Townsend lost her seat in Camden but was elected as an Alderman to the GLC and was co-opted to ILEA’s Education Committee. She remained as Leader of the Opposition until February 1971 when she resigned.

Townsend remained an Alderman of the GLC until 1977 when the Aldermanic system was abolished. She was a member of several bodies, most prominently as a Governor of the London College of Fashion (and Chair of Governors, 1967-86). Townsend was President of the Anglo-Egyptian Association from 1961-87.

Townsend’s colleague and predecessor as Leader of ILEA, 1967-69, Sir Christopher Chataway, was known as an athlete and TV broadcaster as well as a Tory politician. Chataway was born in Chelsea and spent his childhood in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan; his father was a member of the Sudan Political Service. Chataway was educated at Sherborne School and Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was a successful long-distance runner.

After leaving university, Chataway took an executive job with Guinness. It was Chataway who suggested to Sir Hugh Beaver of Guinness – who came up with the idea for the Guinness Book of Records – that his old university friends Norris and Ross McWhirter should be Editors.

Norris and Ross McWhirter were regulars on children’s TV with Roy Castle in the 1970s, but they were seriously weird. They were both of extreme right wing views and most entertainingly, in the words of one of my friends, ‘looked like Nazis’. When the McWhirters were on TV with Roy Castle they confined themselves to being wowed by kids performing ridiculous feats such as being able to eat more beans than the other kids in a set period of time – the champ would be greeted with a chorus of ‘That Makes You a Record Breaker!!!’ – but in their spare time the McWhirters did some worrying things. Noris McWhirter set up the Freedom Association, which campaigned for a number of freedoms, such as the freedom to not join a trade union (I’d appreciate that if I worked in an establishment with a closed shop led by Dafydd’s mates as named on this blog), but also for the freedom to hang people and flog people. There were a whole list of freedoms, most of which were quite mad. In Nov 1975 the McWhirters declared their intention to take on the IRA, which was certainly brave of them – although being the McWhirters their ideas for fighting the idea involved treating every Irish person living in Britain as a terrorist – but their battle ended not long after in Nov 1975 when the IRA shot Ross McWhirter dead at his home.

Noris McWhirter was involved with the Children of Courage Awards, which made temporary stars of children who were taking the world upon their shoulders when they should not have had to do that eg. children caring for severely disabled parents. I’m sure that it was nice for the kids to win an award and attend a do with people off the TV, but it would be even better if someone put in an infrastructure to help the Children of Courage on a long-term basis. Esther was of course something to do with the Children of Courage Awards.

 

Christopher Chataway knew Roger Bannister, the Top Doctor famous for running the first sub-four minute miles and one of the many who helped keep the lid on Dafydd’s activities. Chataway was Bannister’s pacemaker when Bannister performed the feat in 1954. Chataway himself broke a world record in 1954, at a London v. Moscow athletics competition at White City. The contest was televised via the Eurovision network and made Chataway a sporting celebrity; that December he won the first BBC Sports Personality of the Year award. After competing in the 1956 Olympics, Chataway retired from international athletics.

It wasn’t long after leaving Oxford that Chataway decided to aim for a political career and he thought that a suitable job in TV might help. In Aug 1955 Chataway secured a job with ITN. Chataway and Robin Day were ITN’s first two newscasters. Robin Day was a good friend of Ronnie Waterhouse and it is Waterhouse who is credited with being responsible for Day’s TV broadcasting career. Waterhouse saw an advert for ITN newscasters, took details and encouraged his pal Robin Day to go for it. Waterhouse and Day were very close mates throughout their lives and even as old boys, Day always advertised Waterhouse as the man who made him a star. The two leeches very successfully fed off each other throughout their entire lives, as well as many other people of course, they just had to pop into The Garrick on a regular basis to gorge on a bit of blood, then they were ready for a bit more toadying to corrupt politicians.

After six months, when loss-making ITV cut back on its news output, Chataway switched to the BBC and was for three and a half years one of ‘Panorama’s’ team of reporters. Christopher Chataway was the ‘Panorama’ journo who took part in an experiment which involved Chataway taking psychedelics and then being filmed. Ronnie Waterhouse was one of those who raised concerns that the allegations of abuse by former kids in care in north Wales could not be believed because the people making the allegations had been involved in the drug scene.

Chataway had been elected as a Tory to the London County Council in 1958 in Lewisham North and was then selected to stand for Parliament in the same seat. Chataway was the Tory MP for Lewisham North, 1959-66. He served as a PPS before being appointed as a junior Education Minister in Macmillan’s Gov’t in July 1962. In 1966 Chataway lost his seat.

There was organised abuse of children from disadvantaged areas of London as long ago as the 1940s and the procurement of teenagers for sex work. When the Profumo Affair blew up in the face of Macmillan’s Gov’t in 1962, the scandal centred around activities at parties at Cliveden, Bill Astor’s estate. People invited to the parties included Gov’t Ministers, members of the Royal Family, Russian spies and teenaged call girls. One of the girls at the centre of it all, Christine Keeler, had been a teenager from a difficult impoverished background who was sexually abused by her mother’s boyfriend as well as his friends and who then was persuaded into prostitution. Out of all the people who featured in the Profumo Affair, Chrstine and Stephen Ward were the two who were really hung out to dry. Christine went to prison and Stephen Ward ‘killed himself’, after being given a substantial helping hand (see post ‘In Memoriam – Bronwen, Lady Astor’). Lady Astor, Bill Astor’s wife at the time of the Profumo Affair, was the daughter of a Welsh judge. Bronwen went to school in Dolgellau. Ioan Bowen Rees went to school in Dolgellau and his father was a Headmaster of a school in the town. Bronwen was one year younger than Ioan.

In 1967 the Conservatives unexpectedly won control of ILEA and the Party leadership was horrified to discover that their newly elected Councillors were going to try to break up comprehensive schools and replace them with secondary modern and grammar schools, many Tories being supporters of comprehensives in those days. Chataway was elected an Alderman and appointed Leader of the Education Committee. Cajoling his colleagues into a more moderate line, Chataway avoided a head-on collision with Edward Short, the Labour Education Secretary and proceeded with comprehensivisation.

Chataway returned to Parliament in a by-election in Chichester in May 1969 and he then resigned as ILEA Leader. With the return of a Conservative Government in 1970, he was appointed by Heath as Minister for Posts and Telecommunications and made a Privy Counsellor. In this post he took charge of introducing commercial radio for the first time, ending the BBC monopoly. After a reshuffle in April 1972, Chataway was appointed Minister for Industrial Development.

When the Conservatives were defeated in the February 1974 election, Chataway announced his retirement from politics. He became an MD of Orion Bank, a consortium bank later acquired by one of its shareholders, the Royal Bank of Canada. Chataway stayed with Orion, later becoming Vice Chairman, for 15 years. He held various non-executive Directorships. Chataway was the first Chairman of Groundwork, the environmental charity and Hon Treasurer of the National Campaign for Electoral Reform.

Chataway’s principal outside interest was ActionAid, the overseas development charity, of which he became Hon Treasurer in 1974 and later Chairman. By the time he left the Board of Trustees in 1999, ActionAid’s annual turnover had grown to nearly £100 million. When Chataway’s son Adam decided to launch a water project in Ethiopia in memory of his fiancée killed in a road traffic accident, he chose to do it in partnership with ActionAid.

 

During the 1990s, three Hergest Unit patients, one of them being me, were involved with ActionAid. One of us had previously worked for ActionAid in London. This young woman’s life was destroyed by the mental health services in north Wales and her family also made two serious complaints about Jackie Brandt, both of which they told me were responded to with ‘lie after lie after lie’. When Brandt was finally forced to respond to my own complaint about her – some three years after I had initially complained – she lied. I and this other Hergest patient had made similar complaints about Brandt, including unlawful detention in the psych wards which existed at Ysbyty Gwynedd before the Hergest Unit was built. After the Hergest Unit was built, this young woman became massively distressed and made another complaint about the ‘service’, this time alleging that Tony Francis had turned up at her room late one night when she was sectioned and had exposed himself to her. She was denounced by all the staff as mad and she and her family were told that Tony Francis had not been in the hospital that night. This young woman stuck to her story throughout the entire time that I knew her, which was some 10 years. I have no idea whether Francis did do what she alleged, but the NHS managers and staff in north Wales lied constantly, Francis was doing a lot of very worrying things that none of us were told about at the time but of which his colleagues were fully aware and years later I found out that staff at St George’s Hospital Medical School and Springfield Hospital had documented that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and they thought that Francis probably was as well.

The other Hergest patient who was involved with ActionAid was Patient F, who had found out that boys in the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor were being abused and challenged social workers about this. F subsequently received a visit from the Drugs Squad who planted Class A drugs on him and his then wife. He was violently assaulted at the police station by a Sergeant, then fitted up for arson, detained in Risley Remand Centre and then illegally imprisoned in the North Wales Hospital for a year. The Home Secretary at the time was Douglas Hurd and the Shadow Home Office team were Fattersley and Dafydd’s mate John Tilley. The rampant corruption in north Wales at the time was legendary and Fattersley knew about it. He said nothing. But then Tilley’s main interest was ensuring that the transportation to north Wales of all those kids in care from his constituency – Lambeth Central – continued and Gov’t funding for Dafydd’s ‘drugs and alcohol treatment’ initiatives (see post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’).

 

Dafydd and the gang hadn’t finished with F after he left Denbigh. He was targeted by a group of predators with links to the gang who fleeced him of his property and money. He was then deemed a Risk to his newborn baby – on the basis of lies told by the predators – and refused all access to his child, which was brought up by some of the predators in a household containing two sex offenders. A witness to all of this was found dead just before or at about the time that the Waterhouse Inquiry began. See previous posts.

One of the executives of ActionAid, John Westondorpp, came up to north Wales and stayed the night because of the substantial donation that ActionAid were given by F, in the form of an oil painting that he’d done which was auctioned for ActionAid. John Westondorpp spent a lot of time talking to the three of us and heard a bit about the activities of the mental health services in north Wales from F. When I was giving John Westondorpp a lift the next day, he asked me to ensure that F only phoned ActionAid’s Head Office if he was there. At the time I just thought  that John Westondorpp was worried that F would start chatting to office staff at length about the circumstances of Jimi Hendrix’s death – one of F’s main topics of conversation – and cause much confusion, but I’ve since found out that ActionAid was choc full of people, some of them at a senior level, who knew about Dafydd et al (see previous posts).

Here’s a few more things to think about. The oil painting that was auctioned for ActionAid was originally donated by F to the patients’ lounge in the Day Centre of the Hergest Unit. There was no attempt to hang it, it lingered in store room for weeks and the patients all wanted to know when F’s painting was going to be hung. So F asked Alun Davies who, with typical bad grace, snapped that it would be done soon enough. The painting was eventually hung in the lounge and Davies was photographed with it for the local paper. A matter of weeks later, F and me were banned from the Hergest Unit, on the grounds that we presented such a risk to Dafydd’s Life And Limb that We Should Not Pass. No-one would provide us with the evidence on which the decision had been based. We received a letter from the Hergest Unit telling us that our key workers had been removed and we had both been transferred to the ‘care’ of the forensic team, what with us being Dangerous. Shortly after this, we were arrested on the basis of the perjury of Bridget Lloyd, an Angel with the Arfon CMHT. Our case circulated around the system for months until we finally appeared before Bangor Magistrates. We were both acquitted. There was no investigation into Lloyd’s perjury.

After we were acquitted we asked for an apology. It was refused and we were told that we would remain under the ‘care’ of the forensic team. We discovered that before our trial, Tony Francis had written a Court Report for WHEN we were found guilty. Francis recommended that F should be put on probation and that I should be sent to a secure hospital. When I received my medical records years later, I found all the documents relating to this period of time. Plans to frame us, plans as to how this would be done, instructions to Bridget Lloyd as to what to say in Court, forged documents, the whole bloody lot. The event that had precipitated it all was F and I meeting two members of the Mental Health Act Commission and telling them that serious complaints about Dafydd, including him sexually exploiting patients, were never investigated. See previous posts for the full details.

In the wake of us being acquitted but being treated as though we had been found guilty of a serious crime, F told me that he’d had enough of that lot and that he would be asking for his painting back, because the degree of abuse to which we (as well as other patients) were being subjected by Alun Davies and the Arfon CMHT was getting beyond the pale. By this time, Davies had begun his campaign to close the Day Centre and patients were being very obviously neglected and were beginning to kill themselves at a frighteningly high rate. Davies wrote F a laughably ridiculous letter, hinting at F’s alleged insanity to be requesting his painting back ‘when that was given as a gift’. F said oh fuck off, I want my painting back and he retrieved it.

This was how the painting ended up being offered to ActionAid just weeks later.

When did John Westondorpp come and stay with us Empowered Service Users on Anglesey? The beginning of 2001. The year following the publication of the Waterhouse Report, when the media was still full of allegations that Waterhouse had been a huge cover-up and that a lot of people in senior positions had got away with running a huge trafficking ring and had never even been named.

‘We didn’t know.’

John Westondorpp stayed in my bloody house overnight and heard some of the witnesses talking about what had happened to them at first hand.

In June 2001, some four months after John Westondorpp Knew Nuzzing, this man was elected as the Tory MP for Witney (see post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’):

Snooty III’s mum served as a magistrate in Oxford. By the time that John Westondorpp was kipping at our house, Professor Mark Williams, who spent years throughout the 1980s and 90s working with Dafydd, Tony Francis and the gang in north Wales, was well on his way to his Chair at Oxford University and indeed may have even bagged it by then.

‘We didn’t know.’

 

In 1991 Chataway was appointed chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority. He supported his friend Chris Brasher when he established the London Marathon and was President of the Commonwealth Games Council for England, 1990-09. He was knighted in 1995 for services to aviation.

In the 2005 General Election, Chataway’s stepson Charles Walker was elected as Conservative MP for Broxbourne. Chataway’s brother-in-law was the former Conservative MP Peter Horden.

Chataway suffered from cancer for the last two and a half years of his life. Chataway died aged 82 at St John’s Hospice in north west London in January 2014.

There’s nothing like charidee is there.

 

Six years ago, someone in Gwynedd told me that the Conservative Club had donated I think it was a snooker table to the Hergest Unit. The Conservative Club were upset and appalled at the rudeness and disrespect that had been shown towards them by the Hergest Unit after the donation and were even more upset when they discovered that the snooker table had been dumped in a store room and forgotten about and that patients weren’t even aware that the donation had been made. That was the Alun Davies way of conducting business. You appear in the local paper while being hailed as a hero at the same time as treating people absolutely appallingly. Davies was Chairman of Bangor Lions Club, a charidee. After Davies finally retired from the NHS, leaving the Hergest Unit a smouldering mess and a good many patients cold in their graves, Davies became the CEO of St David’s Hospice in Llandudno, being known for his charidee work (see previous posts). I was told on a number of occasions by different people that Davies used his charidee work as a cover for his corruption. When Davies was CEO of St David’s Hospice, the ‘Coronation Street’ actor William Roache – who went to Rydal School in north Wales – was Patron. One of Davies’s big fund-raising bonanzas at St David’s, ‘The Giddy Goat’ festival, starred Paul Merton, Marcus Brigstocke and Phil Jupitus. I have no idea whether they realised to whom they were giving free PR.

 

 

While researching for a future post, yesterday I was watching some vintage news clips from the 1980s featuring the troubled London boroughs which were sending so many kids to Dafydd and John Allen et al at such great expense. Among the many gems I came across one reporting on the very deep mess that Brent Council had found themselves in. The news report was actually about the massive amount of money that Brent was spending on placing homeless people in ‘hotels’ – older readers will remember the sort of hotels that such folk used to end up in, they were not hotels where tourists would kip, not even for one night – while massive amounts of accommodation managed by Brent Council remained empty. An official from Brent was interviewed who proudly told the journo that Brent was busy evicting squatters and was spending a lot of money doing this, because these squatters were disgusting.

Brent Council in the 1980s: I only ever knew of one spoilt middle-class brat who squatted because she didn’t want to pay rent. Everyone else whom I knew who squatted did it because they didn’t have anywhere to live. Furthermore they squatted in flats which Councils like yours had allowed to become uninhabitable and the first thing that they did when they occupied the place was to fix it up and decorate it…

I have blogged much about Brent in previous posts (see eg. post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Have You Killed Today?’) with regard to the abuse and neglect of kids in the care of that Council, in particular the death of Jasmine Beckford in 1984. Mary Turner, the President of the GMB, 1997-2017, worked in Brent schools and was a GMB union rep throughout the time that Jasmine was being abused and slowly murdered. Mary Turner had a special interest in wimmin’s and children’s issues. Mary didn’t even acknowledge Jasmine’s death (see post ‘Mary Turner – An Appreciation’). Harriet Harman worked in Brent Law Centre throughout the chaos, as did her boyfriend Jack Dromey, who became Mr Harriet Harman and like Harriet ended up as a Labour MP. The Labour MP for Brent East, 1987-2001 was Red Ken and the Labour MP for Brent South, 1987-2005, was Paul Boateng. Red Ken and Boateng knew about the scandalous abuse and neglect of children and they knew about Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts.

One of the most senior Top Doctors in the Central Middlesex Hospital which served Brent was Sir Francis Avery Jones. Jones was Welsh and had links with Dafydd’s gang. See post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Have You Killed Today?’.

When reading a bit more about events in Brent recently, I discovered that one of the most entertaining Tory MPs of the Thatcher years was MP for Brent North, 1974-97. I am talking of Sir Rhodes ‘Whack-O!’ Boyson, who caused everyone in whichever house I was watching ‘Question Time’ in to roll around laughing. Rhodes was just fantastic, he was obsessed with the necessity of reintroducing The Cane into schools. Across the Bottoms Of Boys. But sparingly. Not all Bottoms had to be Caned, just some Bottoms. I never fathomed how Rhodes was going to distinguish between a Bottom in need of the Cane and another Bottom, but Sir Rhodes spent so much time dwelling on the subject that he will have had it all worked out. People like Dimbleby would always introduce Rhodes with reference to everyone knowing him because of his mutton chop whiskers and his strong Lancashire accent and studiously not mention that Rhodes was barking mad and obsessed with schoolboys’ Bottoms. Rhodes spent so much time discussing the need to Cane Bottoms that it eclipsed all of his other policy ideas, but they all had a crazed far-right deep tint with a touch of the 19th century. Brown used to maintain that he could imagine Rhodes Boyson being the Headmaster of a rather mediocre public school.

When I talk to young people and tell them about some of the things that happened under Thatch, they have great trouble believing me and I feel like one of Monty Python’s Four Yorkshiremen. But then I was always gobsmacked that someone like Rhodes Boyson actually found his way into Gov’t, even under the excesses of Thatch.

Rhodes Boyson waas born in Haslingdon, Lancashire, the son of Alderman William Boyson MBE JP. Boyson was educated at Haslington Grammar School, University College Cardiff, the University of Manchester, the LSE and Corpus Christ College, Cambridge. He was awarded his PhD in 1967 by London University.

Boyson served with the Royal Navy in WWII and was based in India at the time of Independence. So he knew about the activities of Lord Louis Mountbatten (see post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’).

Boyson was a Methodist lay preacher from his early 20s. The child molester George Thomas, who was Speaker of the House throughout much of Boyson’s Parliamentary career, was one of the most high profile figures in the Methodist Church in the middle years of the 20th century as well as a Methodist lay preacher who had preached in virtually every town in the UK. Boyson will have definitely known George Thomas via the Methodist Church as well as the Commons.

Boyson became a teacher in 1950 and later a Headmaster, first at Lea Bank Secondary Modern School in Rossendale (1955–61), then at Robert Montefiore Secondary School, Stepney (1961–66) and finally from 1967–1974 at Highbury Grove School, a new all-boys’ comprehensive in Islington of which he was the founding Head teacher. At Highbury Grove, Boyson introduced an unfashionably traditional regime, with strictly enforced uniforms and Caning of Bottoms . This proved so popular with local parents that the school was consistently oversubscribed.

From 1957 to 1961 Boyson was a Labour Councillor in Haslingden, Lancashire, where his father was at that time a Labour Alderman and had been a trade union secretary.

Lancashire County Council had a problem with organised abuse of children and vulnerable people. Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council when the paedophile gang ran riot in Gwynedd children’s homes, had worked as a solicitor for Lancashire County Council for a number of years after a stint working as a solicitor for Denbighshire County Council once he had graduated in from Oxford in the mid-1950s. Bowen Rees subsequently worked for the local authorities of Cardiff and Dyfed where abuse gangs linked with Dafydd et al in north Wales operated.

Boyson left the Labour Party in 1964, joining the Conservative Party three years later. He later wrote:

My own move to Conservative party membership arose from the effect of my research into the cotton industry and the Manchester school of liberal economic philosophy. Here was a body of men who believed that a free enterprise economy was not only efficient but brought moral growth to all men. The employer risked his capital on his judgement and must care for his workers as part of his stock in trade, and the workers would be enabled to become prosperous and through their own industry, thrift and moral courage could establish their own business enterprises and their personal independence to the advantage of themselves, their families and society. Cobden had a moral view of society and believed that free enterprise would not only bring prosperity but social harmony at home and peace abroad within a system of universal free trade.

 

Boyson was elected to the Commons in Feb 1974. He was Parliamentary Under-Secretary at the Department of Education and Science, May 1979-June 1983, under Secretary of State Mark Carlisle and then Keith Joseph, both of whom knew about the abuse of children in schools in north Wales as well as elsewhere, particularly in schools for kids with special needs and who concealed it.

Mark Carlisle, Baron Carlisle of Bucklow, was MP for Runcorn, 1964-83 and then for Warrington South until 1987. Carlisle served as Secretary of State for Education and Science, 1979-81. Risley Remand Centre was located at Warrington and Carlisle’s constituents included many of the staff of Risley. The brutality towards Risley inmates on the part of the staff was appalling, even in the ‘hospital wing’, where nearly everyone was a kid from the children’s homes in north Wales or one of Dafydd’s patients. Kids in care and psych patients were constantly found dead at Risley and Dafydd and the gang had fitted most of those detained out there up anyway. Medical ‘care’ was appalling, but a visiting clap clinic was prioritised. For inmates from children’s homes, some of whom were under 15 yrs old. Carlisle knew about all this and as long ago as 1973 was wheeled out to answer questions in the House after the number of deaths of inmates under the age of 16 yrs there was making even those enjoying a free lunch in the Commons blanch. Carlisle saw no real reasons to worry about what was happening at Risley, so the abuse and the deaths continued. See post ‘Include Me Out’. Carlisle was rewarded for his loyal service to a gang of murdering paedophiles in November 1987 when he was created a life peer.

Carlisle was a barrister and a member of Gray’s Inn, along with Dafydd’s (and Ronnie Waterhouse’s) mate and umbrella Sir William Mars-Jones.

Sir Keith Joseph, Secretary of State for Education and Science, 1981-86, knew that people – including the most senior staff -in UCNW were facilitating the paedophile gang in north Wales/Cheshire. Joseph was the MP for Leeds North East, 1956-87, at Jimmy Savile HQ. Joseph served as Secretary of State for Social Services, 1970-74, under Heath and while in that post had concealed the abuse of children and the crimes of Dafydd’s gang in north Wales, along with his adviser, Barbara Kahan. Kahan was a senior social worker, who in tandem with her husband the child psychiatrist Dr Vladimir Kahan, had colluded with abuse of children for years, particularly in Oxfordshire where the Kahans were based. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’. See previous posts for more information re Sir Keith Joseph.

Boyson served as Minister of State for Social Security June 1983-Sept 1984, specifically as Minister for the Disabled no less, under Secretary of State Norman Fowler, who knew exactly what was Dafydd et al were up to. Boyson and Fowler knew that Mary Wynch was on her way to the Master of the Rolls…

Rhodes was then Minister for N Ireland, Sept 1984-Sept 1986. A move from a job dealing with Dafydd and the gang to a job in N Ireland was a path followed by many Ministers and a logical step because the gangsters in north Wales and their crooked police officer chums were closely linked to Kincora and the associated crime in N Ireland.

Patient F encountered his first serious problems with Dafydd, the gang and the bent officers of the North Wales Police in 1986.

Sir Rhodes Minister for Local Government Sept 1986-June 87. It was known known that at that time, that there was organised abuse of children in care in numerous local authorities across the UK and that the gangs in each authority were linked and that the criminal network had spread into Europe. Dafydd’s gang fessed up and offered Mary compensation in 1985. They then refused to pay her and had a good laugh while telling Mary that she have to return to Court to enforce payment. Alison Taylor had written to Thatcher herself and to the DHSS about the abuse of kids in care and was sacked by Gwynedd County Council in November 1987. Brown and I continued to complain/raise concerns. It was while Boyson was Minister for Local Gov’t that Dafydd et al tried to frame and imprison me for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’. Risley Remand Centre, the Mental Health Act Commission and Clwyd and Gwynedd Health Authorities were all on board but the plan unravelled when Sgt Morgan at Bangor Police Station and Jeff Crowther, a nursing officer at Ysbyty Gwynedd, did not tell as many lies as were required. See previous posts.

Rhodes Boyson could not have been unaware of the enormous problem existing in so many local authorities with regard to the trafficking rings which were, by the late 1980s, all linked. Boyson would also have known that Dafydd et al were at the centre of it all and were responsible for a production line in child/young and vulnerable sex workers in north Wales. Ollie Brooke had been imprisoned four months before Boyson was appointed Minister for Local Gov’t and was released just as Boyson left the job. Ollie was part of the gang run by Wandsworth Council, Thatcher’s flagship Tory-led Council.

It was when Boyson was concerned with local Gov’t that the police began to ask questions about the gang in Leicester, of which Greville Janner was a member. By 1986, Brown was living in Leicester doing his PhD, only to find himself obstructed as much as possible by his supervisors at Leicester University’s Centre for Mass Media Research. They were all very much part of the Radical Left and after I began writing this blog I was told that the man behind all those attempts to hold Brown back was none other than the God of Cultural Sociology, Professor Stuart Hall (see post ‘Life In Cold Blood’).
