The Price Is Right

As promised in my comment that followed my post ‘Vichy Warwick’, I have been inspired to write this post by the media coverage of John Allen’s latest jail sentence for the sexual abuse of kids in his care in north Wales. Allen received 14 years, but he was already serving a lengthy jail term at the time of the trial and Allen had served I think two prison sentences before that for sexually abusing kids in care. My point is that there was very little media coverage and the coverage that there was portrayed John Allen as a lone Filthy Pervert rather than one of the key figures in a multi million pound international trafficking gang that ran north Wales; Gwynne and Dafydd were two other key figures…

I have spent a day perusing some of my 10,000 documents as well as documents that others have sent me and given me permission to use, and I will name some of the many people named on my documents who have not yet starred on the blog who knew that the problem in north Wales was a lot greater than one Filthy Pervert. Some of these people subsequently reached senior roles after passing through north Wales years ago and they have no idea that I have documents mentioning their names…See the source image

Some old favourites will be discussed again in this post because after another read of documents that I had only previously had time to flick through quickly, I am left with an even greater sense of:

‘How did they get away with this?’

Even with a powerful accomplice.See the source image

I have a number of other blog posts under development that need further work, so I’ll ask readers to bear with me if I don’t provide full background details to all the events to which I refer in this post. They have virtually all been discussed in detail in previous posts, sometimes more than once. Regular readers will be well-acquainted with the basics; I want to simply flag up just how many people knew that something was terribly wrong in north Wales (and in the other areas in which linked rings/gangs were operating) and that it was so much more than one Filthy Pervert.

I’ll kick off with events from 1988, when I was working in the Cancer Research Campaign team at Surrey University, led by Prof Vincent Marks, brother of the then BMA President/Chairman Dr John Marks. John Marks was a barrister as well as a Top Doc and at the time was doing battle with Ken Clarke at the Dept of Health. Marks and Ken hated each other but they came to an arrangement whereby they’d attack me in collaboration because they were both concealing the same very serious criminality and they couldn’t beat each other…

When I was working with Vincent, the BMA were providing Tony Francis and the self-styled ‘BMA psychiatrists’ – the Gang had arranged themselves into a pressure group to lobby for my incarceration – with advice re how not to respond to my serious complaints and to instead have me convicted and imprisoned for offences that had not been committed.

Previous posts mentioned that after encountering a dreadfully offensive GP in Surrey near Witley, a Michael Hudson with whom I gave up after one 20 min encounter, I registered with Dr Nigel Baldock at Grayshott Surgery on the Surrey/Hampshire border who was much more pleasant. Unfortunately Dr Baldock soon mentioned that my previous GP from Bangor, Dr Wood, had rung him up and what a nice chat they had…

Hudson was struck off some time before I began this blog; after I began blogging, Dr Baldock voluntarily relinquished his licence to practice. During the latest perusal of my documents, I discovered a short letter that Wood had written to a Top Doc in Surrey dated 11 July 1988, but the name and address of the Top Doc cannot be read on the copy due to the poor quality of the copying. This was obviously Wood’s first approach to any Top Docs in Surrey, where I had been working since Spring 1988. As was characteristic of Wood et al, the letter was written without my knowledge, not in any official capacity and was sent from Wood’s home address, at the time Tyddyn Hen Farm, Llandegfan.

Prof Peter Greig-Smith of the Dept of Plant Biology, UCNW and a colleague of Wood’s wife Chris Wood, was a neighbour of the Woods at Llandegfan. Llandegfan was a very popular village with UCNW staff and the better paid NHS workers. See ‘Our Man In Llandegfan’.

The village was choc a block with Top Docs and academics; Lord Wyn Roberts, the Tory MP and Welsh Office Minister, the Gang’s bestest friend, came from near Llandegfan and his huge extended family lived around every corner. Wyn Robert’s father was a Methodist Minister and the family were the sort of family in which many members were in influential positions; Wyn’s brother Eifion Roberts QC was a barrister/judge. Wyn et al basically just intimidated the plebs. Wyn worked for the security services, as did Greig-Smith…

Greig-Smith was a former colleague of Douglas Hurd’s uncle, the Cambridge botanist Edred Corner (see ‘Additional Security Measures’). Hurd worked for the security services himself and served as Home Secretary, 2 September 1985-26 October 1989, during the years of enormous criminality on the part of the Gang, including in my direction. Douglas Hogg, a barrister, was Hurd’s Home Office Minister, 10 Sept 1986-26 July 1989; Hogg’s father Quintin aka Lord Hailsham had been assisting with the Gang’s criminality for decades, particularly throughout that little local difficulty the Profumo Affair. Previous posts have discussed how the whole Hogg family – including Douglas’s sister Dame Mary, his wife Sarah and their daughter Charlotte – have served the Gang loyally.

I have only just noticed that Douglas Hogg’s predecessor as junior Minister at the Home Office was Lord Simon Glenarthur, 27 March 1984-10 Sept 1986. When he was junior Minister at the DHSS, 11 June 1983-26 March 1985, Glenarthur was the Minister responsible for closing down the British lab that treated blood products to be used by the NHS that ensured they were free from infection. After Glenarthur closed that lab and ordered that ALL blood products used by the NHS should be purchased from the US, thousands of NHS patients have died from HIV, Hep B etc that they contracted from infected NHS blood products. Glenarthur was told very clearly that this would result; he went ahead nonetheless. See the source imageTop Docs are now stressing that Glenarthur was warned; yet the Top Docs didn’t tell the public either. They just ensured that blood products used by them and their families weren’t infected.

Simon Glenarthur was succeeded as junior Health Minister by Trumpers who appointed Savile to the Broadmoor task force… Trumpers also succeeded Simon when he served as the Chief Whip in the Lords, 27 May 1982-10 June 1983. Simon and Trumpers were obviously some sort of double act, foisted upon the nation by Thatch in order to inflict maximum fuckwittery and harm to the plebs. Simon has numerous business appointments, most of them concerned with aircraft/arms/military/security, but he’s been a Director of Imperial Tobacco as well.

Simon combines these with his keen interest in Healthcare. Simon became a governor of the Nuffield Hospitals in 2000. Since 2001, Simon has been Commissioner of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and since 2002 Director of the MDU. Since 2010, Lord Glenarthur has been governor and a Trustee of King Edward VII’s Hospital Sister Agnes.

Hurd’s favourite teacher at Eton was Alan Barker, who was married to Trumpers. Barker too worked for the security services. Trumpers was Thatch’s junior DHSS Minister, 30 March 1985-13 June 1987 and it was in that role that Trumpers appointed Jimmy Savile to the management task force of Broadmoor. In 1988 Savile was appointed General Manager of Broadmoor; his mate Alan Franey, an NHS senior manager at Leeds General Infirmary, was appointed as CEO of Broadmoor. Savile had been of the Gang for decades and his sex offending was widely known; he was mates with Trumpers. The appointment of Savile and Franey to Broadmoor was endorsed by DHSS Civil Service Mandarins who were mates with Savile themselves, including Brian McGinnis and Clifford Graham, both people with histories of worrying conduct. Clifford Graham lived on the Somerset Levels.

Savile absolutely did not slip through any nets; the mental health system had been colonised by organised crime, in particular paedophilia/sex abuse and Class A drug dealing, for decades and every senior person in the DHSS colluded.

The Gang had been operating a staff exchange scheme with Yorkshire for decades and in 1983, Gren Kershaw, an NHS manager from Yorkshire/Leeds, arrived in north Wales. Gren eventually become CEO of the North East Wales NHS Trust aka the Conwy and Denbighshire NHS Trust and then Chairman of the Welsh Risk Pool (the body that determines negligence payments to those harmed by the NHS). Gren is a complete crook…

Ken Clarke was appointed Heath Secretary on 25 July 1988; he was promoted from his job as a Minister in the DHSS. When the DHSS was split into two Depts in the summer of 1988, Ken became Health Secretary and John Moore became Secretary for Social Services. Moore lived in Wimbledon, on the turf of St George’s Hospital Medical School and many of his neighbours were the better paid staff of St George’s/Springfield Hospitals, including one of the Mr Bigs of the Westminster Paedophile Ring Bodger Chamberlain. Bodger grew up in south Wales, where his dad was Secretary to the Lord Mayor of Cardiff. Bodger had a direct link to Cardiff MP Westminster Molester George Thomas, who after serving as Speaker, 1976-83, was elevated to the Lords as Viscount Tonypandy. Thomas was mates with Gwynne, Dafydd et al and used services provided by the Gang. Other members of Bodger’s family were based in Leicester a la Greville Janner. Greville’s dad Barnett began life as a dodgy lawyer in south Wales; Greville was born in Cardiff. This lot had been linked with each other for a very long time.

It was George Thomas’s good mate and protector Leo Abse, bent lawyer and Labour MP from south Wales, who was Brains behind the Cunning Plan in 1987 to fit me up and imprison me that unravelled in July 1987. See the source imageLeo’s brother Wilfred was a psychiatrist who knew Gwynne and Dafydd and who emigrated to the US to become Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Abse spent the greater part of his career in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he was a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia, 1962-80.

Leo’s other brother Dannie Abse was the poet and Top Doc…

Lord Michael Havers was the Tory MP for Wimbledon, 1970-June 1987. Havers served as Grocer Heath’s Solicitor-General, Nov 1972-March 1974, See the source image Thatch’s Attorney General for England, Wales and N Ireland, 1979-June 1987. It has now been admitted that Havers as AG actively blocked the prosecution of VIP sex offenders, including paedophiles Sir Peter Hayman (a diplomat and very senior security services officer) and Cyril Smith. Thatch appointed Havers as Lord Chancellor on 13 June 1987, but Havers stood down on 26 Oct 1987 on ‘medical advice’ re health grounds. Havers continued to live for a few more years after being too ill to take the strain of being Lord Chancellor, dying on 1 April 1992. Havers was, with Nicholas Edwards – Old Nick was the Welsh Secretary, 1979-June 1987 – two of the key movers and shakers in Leo Abse’s Cunning Plan re me in 1987. Old Nick stood down as an MP in June 1987 ‘on medical advice’ because he too was at death’s door. Old Nick bounced back as a millionaire businessman within months and lived until 17 March 2018. Old Nick standing down as an MP allowed him to make a huge amount of money as a Director of companies that were given big contracts for the development of Cardiff Bay, a taxpayers funded programme that was pushed through at Gov’t level by the Welsh Office when Old Nick was Secretary of State…

I’ve now received info that both Old Nick and Havers suddenly came over all ill to ensure that they were not at the scene of the crime when the Cunning Plan re me came to fruition. The Cunning Plan was supposed to result in my imprisonment in July 1987; so Old Nick got out in June 1987. Havers scarpering was even more worrying; it seems that the Cunning Plan was relying on Havers being Lord Chancellor by the time that I was imprisoned in Risley and my dead body as a result of ‘suicide’ was discovered. I didn’t end up in Risley in July; instead Brown listened in to the phone call in Aug 1987 and heard Dafydd trying to bribe me, thus Brown raised his concerns with Alwyn Jones my Bangor solicitor and with Gwynedd Heath Authority, and I told MIND (run by Dafydd’s mates but I didn’t know that at the time) as well.  Then I placed the small ad in ‘Private Eye’ asking for info on Dafydd. So another plan was hatched to kill me, which I have been told was the King’s Cross Fire in Nov 1987. As usual with the Gang’s brainwaves, that didn’t get me but it did kill a lot of other people. I’ve had info that Havers was warned to step down and get the hell out before the Big Event.Image result for lord michael havers images

I have the names of the Top Docs who pretended that Old Nick was at death’s door, suffering from a serious but unfathomable terminal illness and I’ll be blogging about them soon, but I haven’t yet found out who declared Havers to be so ill that he had to stand down as Lord Chancellor. It was probably Bodger. Perhaps Lord Havers’ son Nigel the luvvie See the source image can let us know if his dad had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer or needed an emergency hysterectomy that was incompatible with being Lord Chancellor.See the source image

Lord Havers’s sister Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss was busy herself in 1988. Gwynne and Dafydd’s partners in crime in the North East had caused such havoc that it had culminated in the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal and Lord Elizabeth was appointed to Chair the Public Inquiry necessary to conceal the havoc, the result of Lord John Walton, Butler-Sloss’s friend Prof Israel Cohen and other mates of Dafydd’s. Walton was President of the GMC, 1982-89, had refused to investigate my complaints about Gwynne and Dafydd and there was now an eruption on his own manor, so help from the highest quarters was needed. See the source image

Michael Havers, Butler-Sloss and their father Sir Cecil Havers, a High Court judge who was Of The Gang in the Olden Days, were all of Inner Temple. As was Ronald Armstrong-Jones, Lord Snowdon’s dad, the barrister son of Robert Armstrong-Jones, the Top Doc/psychiatrist from north Wales who had studied at UCNW before qualifying as a Top Doc at Bart’s. Mr Thrope was also of Inner Temple.

One of those who constantly maintained that the depraved old sex offenders of the North East in business with Dafydd were Caring Doctors and Social Workers was paediatrician Jane Wynne, who was based in Leeds… Jane was happy to double up as the Independent Second Opinion when anyone dared question the sex offenders of the North East.

Jane Wynne was born in Leicester, the elder daughter of John and Margaret Wynne, a family of lefties. Her father was an agricultural economist who moved to Leeds University in the 1950s, and Jane qualified as a Top Doc from Leeds University. Jane went into paediatrics and became a registrar in Nottingham. She married neurologist Simon Currie in 1976 and worked at Leeds University as a Lecturer in Medicine.

Wynne ran clinics for disabled children and joined Dr Michael Buchanan, the ‘Leeds pioneer in the field of child abuse’. Wynne was appointed as one of the ‘new breed’ of consultant community paediatricians in 1984 at the Leeds General Infirmary, her colleague and Expert In Spotting Child Abuse Chris Hobbs joining St James’s University Hospital soon after. See the source imageJane gradually became more involved in child abuse work, while a local celeb and his mates ran the NHS in Leeds.See the source image

Meanwhile in Nottingham, City Of Ken Clarke, the Nottingham Satanic Abuse Scandal had kicked off. The social workers at the centre of the Nottingham Satanic Abuse Scandal were so crazed and ridiculous that their moral panic fell apart at the seams within weeks as the nation collapsed into laughter at the allegation that a Mr Poo Pants – as described by a small child – was at the centre of the Satanic Abuse Ring in Notts, in which late-term foetuses were eaten. Sadly no-one returned the kids who had been removed from their families speedily or pointed to the dreadful state of the local Social Services, the lunacy in Nottingham University’s Dept of Social Sciences/Social Work or the criminality prevailing in the NHS in Nottingham, backed up by the Queen’s Medical Centre and Nottingham Medical School. A local Tory MP being a crooked barrister who was concealing all this shit in his Ministerial positions in the DHSS/Dept of Health didn’t help.

Mr Poo Pants I Presume?Image result for ken clarke images

Butler-Sloss completed and submitted her laughable whitewash of a Report in July 1988. At the time, my complaint about the Gang to the Medical Ombudsman at the Welsh Office was finally being processed. I had no idea that Robert Owen, Prof of Orthopaedic Surgery at Liverpool University, the Medical Ombudsman appointed by the Welsh Office to organise the investigation, was a mate of Dafydd’s, lived in Colwyn Bay, had until recently worked as an orthopaedic surgeon in north Wales and was Of The Gang himself.

On 8 Aug 1988, Wood wrote to Nigel Baldock at Grayshott Surgery; this letter was sent from Wood’s surgery, Glanfa Surgery, in Bangor. At the time the surgery’s headed notepaper named Wood, E.W. Owens and George V. Kurian as practice partners. Like so many Insider witnesses, Ellis Wynn Owens has died prematurely; he qualified as a Top Doc at Cardiff in 1976. George Kurian is now practicing at Bro Dawel, Garth Road, Bangor. Kurian qualified in 1974 at Bombay University (he also clocked up membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, 1976 and of the Royal College of Physicians, 1976). Kurian has worked as a GP in Bangor since at least 1984.

Glanfa Surgery’s patch included Maesgeirchan, the big disadvantaged council estate on the outskirts of Bangor. Not only was the Ty’r Felin children’s home on Maesgeirchan, but some of the Gang’s henchmen as well as their victims lived on Maesg. There were teenaged sex workers on Maesg, I presume because of Ty’r Felin and the Gang, which probably accounted for the big drugs problem on Maesg as well. Maesg had one of the highest crime rates in Wales and it will have been the Gang’s work, yet that was never mentioned amidst the tut-tutting re Maesg. One part of Maesg was much rougher than the rest of the estate and had such a fearsome reputation that people on the council house waiting list would refuse offers of accommodation at the rough end.

Owens and Kurian, like Wood, knew the full explanation for the drugs, violence and presence of teenage ‘slags’ on Maesg…

Wood’s letter of 11 July 1988 to Surrey made very serious allegations about my father that were completely untrue and that I had told Wood were untrue when Wood literally confronted me with them in 1983 and again in 1984. In his letter, Wood stated his allegations as fact and indulged in pure speculation re the ‘considerably damaged personality’ of mine that had resulted from all this. Wood went on to explain in the letter that I was conducting ‘a vendetta against the local psychiatric services’.

Wood’s letter of August 1988 to Nigel Baldock was much lighter in style, stressed how he was just trying to help, told Baldock that if Baldock wanted, Wood would obtain ‘hospital letters’ [from north Wales] and invited Baldock to phone him if he wanted. Wood always had a great time on the phone, his kind offers to make himself available by phone to third parties whom I had just met were the source of much conspiracy and criminality. I can only imagine the scale of what was happening by the few lines referring to the contents of such phone calls that appear in my documentation… Baldock did not document the contents of the call, he simply noted that he had phoned Wood as invited…

I discussed in previous posts my encounter with Michael Browne, a psychiatrist at Brookwood Hospital in Surrey and Browne being so out of it and uninterested in patients that I presumed that he was either ill himself or perhaps had a serious drink problem. Just a few years later, Browne was named in a scandal involving the death of a seriously ill prisoner at Wormwood Scrubs just after Browne had left the cell after having assessed the prisoner as being fine. Browne continued to practice, although that was a high profile case with the Scrubs angrily denouncing Browne and asking how they could ever look after prisoners if, when they are that ill, the screws beg the Doc to act and he just walks away… In Court, Browne could give no explanation for the medical notes that he had made about the prisoner; Browne had lied about the prisoner’s dire clinical state.

Before I saw Michael Browne MD FRCPI FRCPEd FRCPsych DMP on 24 Aug 1988, Vincent Marks had told my senior colleague that Michael Browne was ‘excellent’. I never ever understood why Vincent had said that, but then I had no idea that Vincent was as unscrupulous as the rest of them yet alone that he was up to his neck in a Ken Clarke-Gang-Marks Brothers huge conspiracy.

The paperwork compiled by Browne gives his addresses as Brookwood Hospital, Woking and Farnham Road Hospital. Just during the year that I was in Surrey, there were a number of suicides and a scandal at Brookwood, it was clearly dreadful. When I met F two/three years later, F, who had grown up in Woking and gone to art college at Farnham, told me that Brookwood had a terrible reputation. Being near London, there was also a major Class A drug dealing and distribution scene in the Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire psych hospitals.

A huge swathe of Surrey reaped the benefit of Michael Browne’s skills and did so for decades as well as Wormwood Scrubs and no doubt a few other places. He was lethal, dishonest and still not stopped when he made media headlines. Vincent will not have been the only Top Doc assuring the unsuspecting that Michael Browne was excellent…Image result for ken clarke images

Jeff Crowther, the Psychiatric Nursing Officer who appeared in Ysbyty Gwynedd in the early/mid 1980s and who colluded with so much, grew up in Guildford.

After the Michael Browne experience, I kept one more appointment at Brookwood when I was told that it would be with another doc; Browne having been the Important One who had now ‘seen’ me and passed me onto his junior doc. Unlike Browne she didn’t have the appearance of a corpse preserved in formaldehyde, she was actually alive, but she was the sort of junior doc who is to be found in bad UK psych hospitals: overseas junior doc who almost certainly was working there because she was considered not up to much and hadn’t been able to escape. I didn’t bother to make another appointment.

On 6 Sept 1988 I was admitted to Ysbyty Gwynedd suicidal – I had been staying in Gwynedd – and was discharged on 7 Sept 1988. The ‘discharge’ letter to Baldock – written on 26 Oct 1988 – was seriously weird, a strange cod-psychoanalytic account of my wicked criminal plan to bring down the Caring Top Docs of the Gang that had backfired on me. I remember the junior doc who ‘assessed’ me on that occasion; he told me that I wasn’t depressed, I was just an ‘extreme’ person. The negligence and criminality that was evident of the part of others was not mentioned; by this time Brown had written to Gwynedd Health Authority raising his concern at Dafydd’s Aug 1987 attempt to bribe me into dropping my complaint in return for a place at Liverpool Medical School.

Baldock was never unpleasant but had I been a GP I would have been wondering why, in such a situation, I had not been informed of the discharge for nearly two months and why so much dreadful practice and shocking misjudgements were being ignored by so many.Image result for ken clarke images

On 5 Dec 1988 I had a walking accident in the Devil’s Punchbowl near Hindhead. I injured my ankle quite seriously and some friendly people in a nearby cottage drove me back home – I couldn’t walk – and the next day my whole leg was an impressive black/blue and hugely swollen. My housemates took me to hospital in Guildford where I was told that nothing could be done because I hadn’t actually broken my ankle, I’d torn tendons/ligaments. I was told after I began this blog that there was a great deal more that could have been done and had they done that, I would not still have a serious weakness in that ankle. It seems that the word was out that I was not to be given effective NHS treatment under any circumstances…Image result for ken clarke images

The names of the Consultants running that A&E proudly emblazoned on the documentation re my ankle are G.G. Bodiwals; M.J. Allen; D.N. Quinton. Allen and Quinton have both voluntarily relinquished their licences to practice.

On 23 May 1989 the Prudential sent a form to Nigel Baldock to complete after I made an application for life assurance as part of the mortgage that I was applying for, on the first house that I bought in Rachub, near Bethesda. I had just begun working at St George’s but not liking the south of England/London I spent as much time as possible in north Wales. Once I began this blog, info arrived telling me that the Gang even had a hand in my house purchase/mortgage; they didn’t do anything as transparent as blocking the mortgage – although had Baldock wanted he could have regurgitated the rubbish that he had been told by Wood et al and stopped me from receiving the mortgage/life assurance (instead Baldock was helpful, signing the Pru form on 12/6/89) – but I’ve been told that a spanner was thrown in the works in more subtle ways. The most obvious being a Cunning Plan to give me a permanent contract at St George’s, thus enabling me to feel that it was OK to purchase a house, the Gang knowing that I was going to be forced out of my career within little more than a year, leaving me with a mortgage to pay and no job.

I’ve also received a lot of info about people who lived near me in the Rachub area who were considered to be quite dangerous. I knew about some of this years ago, but I always viewed the Bethesda area as being rather like the part of Somerset in which I grew up. There were a lot of people around who had endured harsh and unpleasant experiences from their earliest years – at the hands of the Gang in Gwynne’s generation – and it had left its mark. I have deliberately not banged on about my former neighbours who were petty criminals on this blog because the real criminals were Gwynne, Dafydd – who came from Bethesda and had a lot of henchmen there – Ioan Bowen Rees (who lived in a grand Plas in Llanllechid, hidden from the rest of us plebs by trees), Huw Daniel (who was also in a tree-hidden Plas about one mile down the lane) etc.Image result for ken clarke images

There was one man in Llanllechid who had previously worked as a teacher in Manchester and served a prison sentence for having sex with one of his pupils. After he came out of prison he moved in with his former pupil, they had two children and moved to Llanllechid, where they ran the Rachub Post Office. The former teacher was on the sex offenders register and was known to all police, Top Docs, social workers etc, as well as many local people. I only found out about this family’s situation years later. In no way do I think that their privacy should have been breached and I’m not suggesting that any police officer should have popped over to my place for a cup of char and had a good gossip. However while unfounded rumours were spread around Llanllechid and Bethesda about me, F and other people, the history of the man who ran the PO was widely known, including by the people who were having a go at us.

Two people in Rachub who were actively harassing us, Malcolm Fox and his then girlfriend Denise Baker, were friends with the Post Office family. Fox and Baker will only have established the friendship in order to extract info and cause trouble, as indeed they did, highly effectively. Fox began a relationship with the wife of the PO man, Fox and Denise had a huge public punch-up and it was then revealed that Denise had been having an affair with a social worker down the road. The PO woman left her husband and kids to move in with Fox and Denise moved in with the man who worked as a children’s social worker on Anglesey. They lived in style, in one of the best houses in Rachub, their daughter went to an independent school at Llandudno and their cars were suitably flash. Denise completed a degree in psychology at UCNW and became a psychologist, working with Vulnerable Wimmin! She was sacked from job after job and at one point was declared to be a danger to vulnerable people. Denise’s career with vulnerable people continued for a few more years until it did finally grind to a halt, although she somehow picked up a PhD on the way – although I know that she did not do the work needed for that PhD – and became Dr Denise Baker-McClearns. Then she accused a vulnerable man in Rachub of sexually abusing her daughter. He denied the offence, there was no evidence, but the man’s wife left him and he was later found dead. Denise rode on, opened a café in Bethesda and was accused of harassing the Empowered Service User who lived above the café, as well as abusing her staff.

Denise’s ex, Malcolm Fox, took up dealing cocaine. This was no secret, but Fox still yelled abuse at F and I in public so he obviously didn’t fear a visit from the plods and the discovery of his stocks in the event of us complaining.

It really wasn’t the plebs in Bethesda who were the problem. It was an utterly rotten local ‘professional’ class who behaved appallingly, colluding with vindictive, dangerous people and were able to successfully intimidate others because people knew how difficult their lives would be if they stood up to Dafydd, Ioan, Huw Daniel and their mates. The criminals in highish places had 100% support from the criminals in the highest places, in Whitehall and Westminster. Including longstanding Gang member crooked lawyer David Hunt from Denbighshire, Minister at the Welsh Office in the late 1980s, before serving as Welsh Secretary, 4 May 1990-27 May 1993, then returning for a brief visit in the same role, 26 June 1995-5 July 1995, to sort out a little local difficulty involving Dafydd…

Hunt is a law graduate of Bristol University who was there at the same time as Wood. He is now Lord Hunt and was senior partner at the law firm Beachcroft Wansbroughs (now DAC Beachcroft) between 1996 and 2005. Hunt is now Chairman of the firm’s financial services division and is regarded as a major figure in the world of insurance and financial services. DAC Beachcroft handle work on behalf of the MDU.See the source image

People in the Rachub area who were paid/forced to do nasty things to me have DIED after the Ah the doctors they were wonderful found that they’d ‘missed’ serious illnesses, as indeed have some of those who were very supportive to me. (Lord David Hunt is, most appropriately, the Vice-President of the Holocaust Educational Trust.) Doing favours for gangsters did not get my foes very far although they feared what would happen to them if they said no to Big Dafydd. I refuse to be intimidated by corrupt, thick Top Docs, crooked officials/Councillors and spiteful little Angels.

My point as ever is where were the authorities, because the info coming into this blog indicates that the authorities knew exactly what was going on.See the source image If people can be the subject of murder plots and no-one at all helps, that suggests to me that the problem is rather greater than the petty criminals…

I have been told that the Gang had people in every bank, building society and insurance company. Including the Prudential, who did sell me expensive, worthless policies, but they didn’t just do that to me. See the source image

My former neighbours were not members of the Gov’t refusing to regulate such activities. 

Nigel Lawson served as Thatch’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, 11 June 1983-26 October 1989. Lawson went back as far as the early 1960s with the Gang’s financiers, including Edward du Cann’s old mates Jim Slater and Peter Walker. Lord David Hunt made friends with them in his youth, as well as with the Tory Gang members local to north Wales such as Tory MEP Beata Brookes.

Edward du Cann also stood down from Parliament in June 1987, but remained alive and kicking, living in style, swindling people and in business with other Gang members/associates until Aug 2017… du Cann could not possibly have not been on board with the 1987 Cunning Plan in my direction, he would never have been able to resist the temptation.

Frank Beck, the Leicestershire social worker whom Greville Janner didn’t really know that well at all once they were both questioned by the police for sex offences against children, served as a Liberal Councillor for Blaby, Lawson’s constituency, from 1983 until quite some time after Beck was placed under investigation by the police. Had Beck not been charged and subsequently jailed, his career in local politics could well have lasted decades.

The Gang had excellent diplomatic links with the Leicestershire ring. Kenneth Scott arrived from Wandsworth to work in a children’s home run by Clwyd County Council in the early-mid 1970s, undertook bugger all training in social care/work at Bangor Technical College (later known as Coleg Menai), survived complaints of abuse against him and rocked up in Leicestershire in the mid-1980s, working in a children’s home that had just waved goodbye to Frank Beck as the manager. Scott was subsequently convicted of child sex offences in the 1990s. Ronnie Waterhouse’s Report stressed that there was no link to Beck because Beck had left the home as manager some three weeks before Scott had been employed…

Ronnie didn’t account for the notion that a RING was in operation, a ring that by definition involved members mingling… But Ronnie couldn’t have worked on the basis of such a theory, because one of the Rules of the Ronnie’s Inquiry was that it would only be restricted to investigating events in venues in north Wales. Very useful if the region was the hub of an international ring, which transported children from north Wales to venues in England, Europe and even the US… The gang rape of a boy who was driven from Wrexham to a house in Chester and then returned to Wrexham was beyond Ronnie’s remit, as was the appearance of kids from Bangor in Dolphin Square, yet alone the holidays in France for the kids provided by John Allen etc.

So Ronnie was not in the least bit interested in Kenneth Scott’s travels from Wandsworth to Clwyd to Leicester, let alone my ‘assessment’ ordered by Bangor Magistrates conducted during 1987/88 by Second Opinion Dr James Earp of Leicester, who had previously visited Denbigh but Didn’t Know Dafydd. Earp had known Gwynne but forgot to tell me that. Neither would Ronnie have been interested to know that the MIND rep in Leicester told me in Aug 1987 that he had heard about Denbigh, ooh it’s terrible up there, there’s a corrupt Welsh Doctor and it’s all mixed up with Freemasonry but James Earp, he’s absolutely fine, and that William Bingley, Legal Director of MIND at their London HQ, said exactly the same but forgot to mention that he and his mum were both good friends of Dafydd and had been mates with Gwynne as well.

Ronnie did mention in his Report that Rob Evans, Lucille’s Assistant Director of Social Services for Gwynedd, had completed his degree at Leicester University, had also worked in Northampton and had been a Team Leader in Dorset before receiving a warm welcome from Lucille. Ronnie didn’t comment that Beck had worked in Leicester AND Northampton, that Paddy Ashdown of MI6 had been a Youth Leader in Dorset at the same time as Rob Evans, Paddy who knew folk who knew me, that Paddy bagged his seat in Yeovil in June 1983 as the Gang moved in on Brown and me AND that Paddy’s predecessor in Yeovil was the Tory Lord John Peyton who knew my grandpa, Edward du Cann, Tom King et al… Ronnie definitely didn’t mention that Rob Evans headed for Gwynedd and Lucille just as the 1984 Gwynne Row erupted and that for years Rob stood by and watched his henchmen/women threaten and intimidate me and perjure themselves in the High Court in attempts to have me imprisoned. Ronnie knew the presiding judges as well.

Here’s one for Ronnie in the Afterlife. John Peyton not only knew grandpa, Tom King and du Cann et al but Peyton worked with Sir Walter Turner Monckton, 1st Viscount. Walter attended Harrow School and then studied at Balliol College, Oxford. He was elected President of the Oxford Union. Monckton was called to the Bar at the Inner Temple. He served as advisor to Edward VIII during the abdication crisis and his Royal connections led to Walter’s appointment as constitutional advisor to the last Nizam of Hyderabad.

Walter worked in propaganda and information during World War II See the source imageand became Solicitor General in Winston Churchill’s 1945 caretaker Gov’t, although he refused to join the Conservative Party. After the 1945 General Election, Monckton returned to legal practice and also continued to serve as advisor to the Nizam of Hyderabad.

Walter finally joined the Tory Party after WW II and became MP for Bristol West in 1951. He was Churchill’s Minister of Labour and National Service, 1951-55. Walter was Anthony Eden’s Minister of Defence 1955–56, but was the only Cabinet Minister to oppose Eden’s Suez policy and was moved to Paymaster-General 1956–57. In 1957 Walter picked up his peerage, Dafydd qualified as a Top Doc and Walter joined the Board of Midland Bank. Lord Monckton was Chairman of Midland Bank (1957–64), President of the Marylebone Cricket Club (1956–1957), President of Surrey County Cricket Club (1950–52 and 1959–65), Chairman of the Iraq Petroleum Company (1958) – the Oil Industry was bankrolling the London Hospital, an institution run by the Gang’s mates who were in business with East End gangsters including the Krays, Lord Bob Boothby et al – Chairman of the Advisory Commission on Central Africa (1960) and Chancellor of the University of Sussex (1961–65).

Walter died in 1965 so he wasn’t at Sussex to be Shocked and Disgusted along with Asa Briggs at Merfyn and his mates throwing red paint over the VIP from America as an anti-Vietnam protest (see ‘The Wizard War’), but no doubt the grudge had already been genetically inherited by Walter’s son Gilbert.See the source image

In 1960 Walter headed the Monckton Commission that concluded that the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland could not be maintained except by force or through massive changes in racial legislation. It advocated a majority of African members in the Nyasaland and Northern Rhodesian legislatures and giving these territories the option to leave the Federation after five years.

Walter’s second wife was Bridget Monckton, 11th Lady Ruthven of Freeland, CBE, the wartime Head of the ATS counterpart in India, the Women’s Army Corps (India) and also of the Women’s Royal Indian Naval Service (WRINS).

Walter was succeeded by his son Gilbert, born of his first marriage. Gilbert was the man who genetically inherited the grudge against Merfyn, which spelt trouble for Merfyn in the next generation, because Gilbert Monkton’s daughter – who also inherited the grudge, the Gang’s grudges being dominant where genetic transmission is concerned – is Rosa, who married Dominic Lawson, Nigel’s son. See the source imageRosa was a close friend of Diana, and Rosa and Nigel’s daughter Dominica was one of Di’s bridesmaids. If I was Rosa I’d be none too happy that my mate had hit a tunnel at speed and lies were told, but Rosa still seems to be civil to Brenda, Carlo et al.

See previous posts for gen on the Moncktons and Lawsons; they are an interesting network with lots of charidee work and links with the grander associates of the Gang as well as Royals. Rosa and Dominic are high profile Catholics.

 

The address on the Prudential paperwork in my possession isn’t the rented flat in which I lived in London, it is my family’s house in Somerset. I remember having some strange conversations with the Prudential man in Bangor who kept finding all the options for my address in London unacceptable in terms of ooh you haven’t lived there long enough etc. That man worked very hard to ensure that I used the Somerset address on my application. I’ve been given info that someone in the Prudential wanted that address in an official capacity for no constructive purpose.

Mr Bridgy Celeb had tripped over Zany Python Graham Chapman, Tommy Leigh-Pemberton (son of Robin, the Governor of the Bank of England, 1983-93), etc, some two years before Prudential wanted to offer me a mortgage. Mr Bridgy Celeb’s celeb friends were all acquired as a result of him bumping into David Kirke of the Oxford Dangerous Sports Club. Nigella Lawson was mates with people from the Oxford DSC when she was at Oxford in the late 1970s/early 1980s.

Graham Chapman sexually abused boys throughout his adult life and simply reminded the one plod who dared question him that he was a Top Doc and he was never troubled again. Chapman, the son of a Leicestershire policeman, had Trained at Bart’s so enjoyed the Armstrong-Jones Family Umbrella. Before Bart’s, Chapman undertook his pre-clinical years at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. Tom King is an Emmanuel alumnus, as were/are a disproportionate number of others in the Gwynne and Dafydd support network. Chapman knew the climbing contingent in Snowdonia well; he lived in Hampstead, but was a keen climber and spent many weekends in Snowdonia. Chapman was good mates with a lot of the Top Docs at the C&A Hospital in Bangor and at Ysbyty Gwynedd, many of whom at the time were Bart’s grads, because of the Armstrong-Jones influence.

Graham Chapman developed one hell of an alcohol problem when he was still quite young and it nearly killed him. He and his mates were always frank about this, but I’d be very surprised if Zany Graham didn’t max out on Class As too; his mates did and his mates like Keith Moon were so excessive that no-one who wasn’t in the Class As scene themselves could have tolerated their company. Even when not out of his head on booze/drugs, Chapman himself was usually deeply offensive and it is a matter of wonder that he didn’t ever find himself confronted by someone who was not going to stand by and watch violent sexual abuse of vulnerable people wrapped up as Zany Pythonesque banter. I’m not sure that Chapman quite plumbed Savilesque depths, but he was on the way there. I can only presume that his knowledge of and close connections to the Toppest of Top Docs central to serious organised crime and Bing Spear, Dafydd’s corrupt Home Office Drugs Branch Civil Service Mandarin mate, left Chapman untouchable by the law.

Thatch had won the General Election in June 1987 with a bit of help from Tony Francis dealing with as many corrupt politicians as poss, while the DSC crowd found themselves befriending Mr Bridgy Celeb. Tony Francis had qualified as a Top Doc in Cardiff at George Thomas Central, knew the Windbag from his student days and was playing all politicians off against each other. Thatch came out on top of course because Tom King had a direct line to the folk who mattered as it were… Even poor old Dr Death, a member of the Gang from his student days at Tommy’s, couldn’t triumph over Thatch.See the source image

What a collection of total idiots. Thatch and Ken Clarke won the day.

See post ‘Jennifer’s Diary’ for an account of the bizarre changes in my father’s employment from the late 1980s onward that resulted from the inexplicable interest of a Nottingham businessman – the Uncle Richard of Neil Tennant of Pet Shop Boys fame –  in purchasing a small, ailing factory in Bridgy. The trail leads to Ken Clarke and friends. On the Bridgy level, I have received info from readers that legislation was flouted that will have needed the collusion of town planners, Councillors etc in Bridgy.

Peter Morrison served as Minister of State for Employment, 13 June 1983-2 September 1985 and for much of that time, Tom King was Employment Secretary. Morrison then served as Minister of State in the DTI, then he was Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party (under Tebbs as Chairman), 10 September 1986-11 June 1987, then Minister of State at the Dept of Energy with responsibility for Oil, 11 June 1987-23 July 1990 and Thatch’s PPS, 23 July 1990-28 Nov 1990. When Thatch first became PM, Morrison was Lord Commissioner in the Treasury under Chancellor of the Exchequer Geoffrey Howe.

Re my 1989 mortgage application, I’ve been told that because the Big Boys Of The Gang were busy committing such serious crime behind the scenes, the Gang didn’t want to risk anything leading back to them. The address that the Pru wouldn’t accept on my application ie. my ‘real’ address, was in Tooting, on the territory of Wandsworth Borough Council, who were in business with St George’s/Springfield as well as Dafydd and the Gang. It seems that Wandsworth And Friends knew that they’d be called upon before too long to Share Information re my Insanity and Dangerousness. See the source imageWandsworth was Thatch’s favourite Borough led by the Tory Sir Paul Beresford, High Society dentist… If serious organised crime is on the cards, it’s important that the Biggest Mr Bigs aren’t caught. Which is probably why people have been so keen for me to name locals from Bethesda on this blog…

Can’t everyone concentrate on the real baddies?See the source image

The Pru rep who organised my mortgage application was a man called Dylan who was the mortgage advisor at Reeds Rains estate agents in Bangor. The manager of Reeds Rains lived at Llandegfan; I remember him very well, he was Gareth. His assistant whom I also got to know well was Karen. Imagine my surprise when as my life became increasingly hampered by the Gang, Karen left Reeds and Rains to begin a degree in archaeology at Bangor University. Then Karen bagged a First and stayed on for a PhD. I met Karen again when I began and then finished my PhD at Bangor. Karen was quite frosty and cold towards me which was odd because she had always been very pleasant in Reeds and Rains and I had got to know her over a period of years. Karen’s good mate in the Dept of History and Archaeology at Bangor was Dinah Evans. Dinah is married to Ron, the (now retired) crooked Gwynedd County Council solicitor who for years was the mover and shaker behind the conspiracies to imprison me. Ron was the man who when the investigations re child abuse began told everyone that they must never ever tell anyone what they had all done because it was so serious and so inexcusable…

Alwyn Jones, my Bangor solicitor who did the conveyancing for me re house purchases, was until about 1990 married to one of Ron’s colleagues, a lawyer who worked for Gwynedd CC. She was the daughter of a local policeman who busied himself in the Freemasons. See the source image

Come on the petit bourgeois criminals of Gwynedd, you’re going to have to squeal on the Mr Bigs behind you all… I’m not interested in rigged exam marks by stupid old gits in Bangor University 20 yrs ago or your bungalows and caravans, I’m intrigued as to who perceived me to be such a threat that High Court judges ended up being nobbled.

Fess up Karen!!! I want Huw Daniel, Lords Malcolm Pill and John Roch arrested,  I can’t be bothered with a craven former estate agent who wanted a part-time job teaching archaeology at Bangor, you’ve been a real chump doing the work of an international murdering paedophile gang and you won’t recover from that anyway…See the source image

‘OOH PROFESSOR JONES, I’d SO like a few hours a week teaching in the School of History, please, ooh I’ll do anything…’

Except er um oh they’ve killed Nerys you say???

Well of course we  NEVER LIKED Merfyn, ooh he was a shocker and as for that friend of his, the Philanderer… And you needn’t think that we’re impressed with him being the Guv’nor of the BBC either…

I’m out of here, I’ve heard that there’s a job going at Glyndwr University…See the source image

Along with Ken Clarke, John Moore and Trumpers in the sewer that was the DHSS, was Edwina Currie, a junior Minister, 10 September 1986-16 December 1988. Edwina Didn’t Know about Savile either. Edwina was in the throes of her extra-marital fling with John Major when she was at the DHSS. After leaving the Commons, Edwina made it public that when she was in politics it had been widely known that Peter Morrison was abusing children. Edwina was the MP for South Derbyshire, June 1983-April 1997. The Gang had an exchange scheme with abusive staff in Derbyshire and longstanding links to the ring in that county. Lord Wyn Roberts was friends with Spencer Le Marchant, Tory MP for High Peak, 1970-83, who was alleged to have been a member of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Spencer died at the age of 55 yrs on the Isle of Wight on 7 Sept 1986. Spencer was born in Edmonton, which is where Deb Everard the obnoxious technician of Bodger’s lived who had some sort of hold over Bodger and got away with a great deal. Everard was a Tory Councillor in Edmonton and the Gang utilised all possible networks. Previous posts have discussed the MPs of Edmonton who Served The Gang; Spencer’s Edmonton connections may have been long ago, but the Gang utilised absolutely everything…

Spencer’s wife Lucinda Gaye Leveson-Gower, was daughter of Brigadier General Hugh Nugent Leveson-Gower and his first wife, Avril Joy Mullens. Joy was later the fourth wife of Ernest Aldrich Simpson, himself the second husband of Wallis, Mrs Simpson. Gwynne and Dafydd could never have refused to work a dodgy deal with a shag-relative of Mrs Simpson as it were…

Spencer and Wyn were mates with Colin McEvedy, a psychiatrist who was mates with Gwynne and Dafydd… McEvedy’s daughter Allegra now runs the LEON chain of restaurants with Henry Dimbleby, son of David of the BBC. See the source imageMcEvedy advised his daughter on her restaurant business before he ‘committed suicide’ on 1 Aug 2005.See the source image

Edwina Currie was born into a Jewish family in Liverpool, went to the Liverpool Institute High School for Girls where she was Deputy Head Girl. Edwina will have known many of the big wigs who assisted Dafydd’s Gang in Liverpool and probably knew Lord Henry Cohen CHECK. Currie studied at St Anne’s College, Oxford. While there, Edwina lived next door to Mary Archer, Ann Widdecombe, and Gyles Brandreth‘s wife Michèle Brown. Subsequently, Edwina gained an MA from the LSE.

Edwina was a Councillor in Birmingham, 1975-86, when the Gang and Birmingham’s Mr Big, Robert Bluglass, were in business together. Numerous children from Birmingham were sent to children’s homes in north Wales; that and the associated criminality in Birmingham were such a big phenomenon that Birmingham Cllrs could not have missed all of it.

The St George’s staff Top Doc, who’s job was to get rid of whistleblowers and protect criminals was Nita Mitchell-Heggs MRCP MFOM ‘District Consultant Occupational Physician’. Nita was a psychiatrist who had trained at the Maudsley and knew the Gang. Nita wrote to Nigel Baldock on 26 Sept 1989 (Nita dictated her letter on 19 Sept 1989), asking Nigel if he thought that I was Dangerous. Nigel replied that he didn’t think I was. It didn’t reassure Nita and there was a telephone conversation between Nita and Baldock on 6 Oct 1989….

Graham Chapman died on 4 Oct 1989. David Kirke of the DSC asked Mr Bridgy Celeb to visit Chapman in hospital just before he died, so relations between everyone were well-cemented by Oct 1989. Chapman was ‘in a posh hospital in London’. I never found out which posh hospital, but the news of Chapman’s death will have travelled through Top Docs’ High Society like wildfire.

Chapman was mates with many with Gang connections, including of course fellow Cambridge Footlights Top Doc Jonathan Miller, who’s son William worked with my friend at the BBC before my friend was forced out of his job there in the early 1990s. Python Terry Jones was born in Colwyn Bay and spent his early years there, before moving to Surrey, where he attended the Royal Grammar School in Guildford, then St Edmund Hall, Oxford. The Royal Grammar in Guildford was THE place to send your sons if you weren’t going really posh eg. Charterhouse. Vincent Marks’s colleagues were prepared to kill to get their kids into the Royal Grammar School. Eric Idle came from Durham and his mum was a health visitor, on the turf of the Gang’s partner ring in the North East…

The connections go on and on, including Bill Oddie, who, being a keen birder, knew some of the birders in north Wales who knew me, Graeme Garden, who qualified as a Top Doc but never practised…

The colleague of Chapman’s squarely in the picture is John Cleese, from Weston-Super-Mare, who went to Clifton College and then Downing College, Cambridge. Cleese was friends with psychiatrist Robin Skynner, who along with his wife Prue were accomplices of the Gang. The Skynners were facilitating organised abuse and Robin was concealing abusive clergy in his Therapy Group for Clergy and their Spouses. Prue Skynner was such a good mate of the St George’s/Springfield lot that they named their Therapy Wing after Prue. Cleese was also mates with Dr Death; Cleese campaigned for the SDP and starred in party political broadcasts for them. D.G.E. Wood was a big fan of Dr Death and the SDP.

Readers might remember from previous posts that in Nov 1989, the month following Mitchell-Heggs’ letter to Baldock and Chapman’s death, Dr Chris Hunter, a mate of Dafydd and Tony Francis’s, held a Case Conference about me which culminated in Hunter declaring me to be Homicidal, Extremely Dangerous and in need of being sent to live with Mr Savile on Broadmoor. Hunter offered to prepare a Court Report saying this although I wasn’t facing any charges at the time. See the source imageI was arrested a few weeks later…

I knew nothing about any of this until I obtained the paperwork some four years ago. I had never heard of Chris Hunter or of most of the people who Gave Evidence at the Case Conference. Two names that I did recognise were those of Gwynedd social workers Jackie Brandt and Keith Fearns, who subsequently perjured themselves repeatedly. At the time of the Case Conference I had never met Fearns and had met Brandt at most two or three times, when she had unlawfully detained me in the psych ward at Ysbyty Gwynedd on 17 Aug 1986, which resulted in my first encounter with Dafydd…

It was Tony Francis who orchestrated the Case Conference and he began firing off letters organising it in the month before Bluglass ‘investigated’ my complaint… It was Bluglass who told Dafydd immediately after his investigation that he thought that I was a psychopath who would end in a ward for the criminally insane. Indeed, Bluglass’s mates were doing all that they could to arrange it. See ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’.

I was touched to notice that letters from Nita and her colleagues written on Official St George’s Hospital Medical School Paper loudly advertise the Patrons of St George’s: Brenda Image result for hm the queen knighting bruce forsyth imagesand HRH Duchess Of Kent. The Duchess’s husband the Duke of Kent is Brenda’s cousin. He is President of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club and presents the trophies to the Wimbledon champion and runner-up. Bodger’s house was right next to the All England Lawn Tennis Club and he had doings with them.

The Duke of Kent is famed for his high profile in Freemasonry; since 1967 the Duke has been Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England.

The Duchess of Kent aka Katharine Lucy Mary Worsley was born at Hovingham Hall, Yorkshire, daughter of Sir William Arthington Worsley, 4th Baronet, and his wife, Joyce Morgan Brunner. Worsley’s mother was the daughter of Sir John Brunner, 2nd Baronet, and granddaughter of Sir John Brunner, 1st Baronet, the founder of Brunner Mond, which later became ICI. Worsley’s godparents were her maternal uncle Sir Felix Brunner, 3rd Baronet, Major Sir Digby Lawson, 2nd Baronet, her paternal aunt Lady Colegate, and Margaret Fife of Nunnington Hall.

Katharine did not receive any formal education until the age of 10. After that, she was educated at Queen Margaret’s School, York, and at Runton Hill School in Norfolk, but obtained no formal qualifications. The Duchess worked for some time in a children’s home in York and at a nursery school in London. Katharine followed her brothers to Oxford – where they were at the University – to study at Miss Hubler’s Finishing School, 22 Merton Street, devoting much of her time to music. At Miss Hubler’s, Katharine was one of only eight pupils and was instructed by three different teachers: the Principal herself, Miss Hubler, taught French literature, painting and history; a French woman taught cookery; and a Viennese lady taught music.

I had no idea that the Patron of the World Famous St George’s Hospital Medical School was educated at a Dame School, Bodger never mentioned it. See the source image

Katharine met Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, the eldest son of Prince George, Duke of Kent, and Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark, while he was based at Catterick Camp. They married in 1961 at York Minster; the best man was Prince Michael of Kent. Princess Anne was a bridesmaid. Guests included actors Noël Coward and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. as well as members of the British, Greek, Danish, Norwegian, Yugoslavian, Romanian and Spanish royal families.

HRH and her husband Big Mason have three children: George Windsor, Earl of St Andrews (born 26 June 1962); Lady Helen Taylor (born 28 April 1964); and Lord Nicholas Windsor (born 25 July 1970).

Katharine had an abortion in 1975 due to her contracting German measles and in 1977 gave birth to a stillborn son, Patrick, a loss that caused her to become severely depressed, about which she spoke publicly. “It had the most devastating effect on me,” HRH told The Daily Telegraph in 1997. “I had no idea how devastating such a thing could be to any woman. It has made me extremely understanding of others who suffer a stillbirth.”

Bodger will have milked Katharine’s trauma for all that it was worth. Cilla gave media interviews on the subject of Her Heartbreak at the birth of her own premature baby who did not survive, when Bodger was in need of good PR. I’m not suggesting that Katharine or Cilla did not experience distress re these events; neither am I suggesting that they were not deserving of sympathy. It’s just that they knew that very serious complaints were made about St George’s, including the Dept of Obs and Gynae, that the Dept had been the centre of three high profile national scandals and that their Opening Of Hearts was needed to whitewash a dangerous, troubled hospital that would not get its act together no matter how low it sunk.

The Duchess of Kent converted to Catholicism in 1994, with the approval of Brenda. The Duchess explained in an interview on the BBC: “I do love guidelines and the Catholic Church offers you guidelines. I have always wanted that in my life. I like to know what’s expected of me. I like being told: You shall go to church on Sunday and if you don’t you’re in for it!”See the source image

Basil Hume, then Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, warned the Church against triumphalism over the Duchess’s conversion. Basil’s brother was the Top Doc John Hume, part of the Royal Docs’ team who managed to cock-up a very simple operation of Anthony Eden shortly after Eden had pissed off Brenda’s family, damaging Eden’s health permanently. Basil was a good mate of Jimmy Savile and was the man who bagged Savile membership of the Athenaeum, favoured club of Top Docs and VCs, during the throes of the Gwynne Row.

Basil’s sister Madeleine’s first husband was Sir John Charles, Chief Medical Officer – one of the many who Helped Nye Bring The NHS Into Being – and Madeleine later married Lord John Hunt of Tanworth, Cabinet Secretary, 1973-79. John Hunt’s Service To The Nation paralleled that of Robert Armstrong who served as Cabinet Secretary to Thatch, 1979-87. Armstrong served as Principal Private Secretary to the PM, 1970-75 (Grocer Heath and then Wilson) and as Permanent Secretary at the Home Office, 1977-79, when the dreadful Merlyn Rees was Home Secretary. Rees, born in south Wales but later a graduate of the LSE who then worked as a teacher in Leeds and held a Leeds Commons seat for decades, was in the thick of Gwynne and Dafydd. Merlyn Rees even found himself a Director of Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council and the North Wales Police, in 1996, when Municipal Mutual hired Cherie and Miranda’s mate Michael Beloff QC to ensure that no-one ever found out the truth behind the extent of the abuse of kids in care in north Wales. See eg. ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’See the source image

Michael Beloff’s dad Lord Max was a mate of both Ioan Bowen Rees and Thatch. The Beloffs are a big family with fingers in many of the Gang’s pies; Max’s sister Norah was a journo who worked for Reuters and then the Observer, another sister Lady Anne – who died in Dec 1991, just after Cap’n Bob went overboard – was the biochemist who married Nobel winning biochemist Sir Ernst Chain… See previous posts.

John Hunt is famous for being the first Cabinet Secretary who was a Roman Catholic. He covered up huge heaps of manure, even by Cabinet Secretary standards, because he had Harold Wilson’s wrongdoing to deal with as well as Grocer Heath’s, Sunny Jim’s and Thatch’s. Hunt’s colleague Robert Armstrong was the man who became famous for admitting that he was ‘economical with the truth’, admitted that he knew that Peter Morrison was molesting children but there were no national security issues, knew that Sir Peter Hayman was an active paedophile and also warned Thatch that giving Savile a K could result in ’embarrassment’ because of Savile’s ‘private life’.See the source image

Robert Armstrong knew about Gwynne and Dafydd’s ‘private’ lives as well. Image result for north wales hospital denbigh imagesThey abused and killed people Armstrong you dork, there was nothing private about any of it. Official portrait of Lord Armstrong of Ilminster crop 2.jpg

Armstrong has strong links to Somerset and when he bagged his peerage in Feb 1988 – I was offered the job with Vincent Marks in Feb 1988! – Armstrong took the title Lord Robert Armstrong of Illminster in Somerset. This is the man who is the problem, not the petty criminals of Bridgy or Rachub…

Can I have my money please Robert? Get out of this one now you old bastard…

Basil was a one-off in his family being a priest; the Humes were a medical family from Newcastle. Basil is now most remembered for concealing all that organised abuse in the Catholic Church. No-one’s mentioned that Basil’s powerbase lay not in the RC Church but in his family who ran the NHS in the North East and were of Royal Doc status.Spamalot poster.jpg

The Duchess of Kent with Sir Walter Campbell and Lady Campbell in Brisbane, 1992

In 1978, the Duchess was hospitalised for several weeks due to “nervous strain”. I presume that HRH was not admitted to Springfield or Denbigh. Reports by the BBC stated that the Duchess suffered from coeliac disease and Epstein–Barr virus, whose symptoms resemble those of ME. She stepped down from her role as head of the ME Society in the UK and has since ‘energetically’ worked with various charities and schools.

The Duchess of Kent decided in 2002 not to use the style “Her Royal Highness” and to reduce her Royal duties. Since then she has been informally known as Katharine Kent or Katharine, Duchess of Kent, although her formal style (e.g. in the Court Circular) remains HRH The Duchess of Kent. Despite her decision to stay away from public life, the Duchess continues to appear at major events including Kate and William’s wedding and other big Royal shindigs.

In keeping with her withdrawal from full Royal duties in 1996, the Duchess took a position as a music teacher in Wansbeck Primary School in Kingston upon Hull. She also gave piano lessons in a rented studio flat near her official residence at Kensington Palace. The Duchess of Kent has served as the President of the Royal Northern College of Music,

The Royal Northern College of Music know how to choose their big wigs, Sir Idwal Pugh served as their Chairman from 1988 to 1992. Sir Idwal was the corrupt Civil Service Mandarin who was a good pal of Gwynne and Dafydd, as well as George Thomas. Sir Idwal was born in Blaenau Ffestiniog but was brought up in south Wales. He went to Cowbridge Grammar School, as did Bodger and Sir Anthony Hopkins. Sir Idwal was able to do so much for the three turds – Gwynne, Dafydd and George – in particular during his time as Permanent Secretary at the Welsh Office, 1969-71, when George Thomas and then Peter Thomas aka Pedr Paedophilia were successively Secretary of State. After he left Pedr Paedophilia behind at the Welsh Office, Idwal served as one of the Top Dogs at the Dept of the Environment under Grocer Heath’s Secretary of State one Peter Walker, one the Gang’s City slickers.

Sir Idwal served as Parliamentary Ombudsman and Health Ombudsman, April 1976-Dec 1978. In that post, Sir Idwal entered into a ruse with Jack Ashley MP and staged a Case to show that the Mental Health Act could not be abused again after a lady who was unlawfully detained for a matter of days was Defended by Sir Idwal and received compensation and sympathy. Within minutes of Idwal stepping down from that post, Dafydd illegally incarcerated Mary Wynch for more than a year and Mary never ever received justice. Could it have been that Idwal knew that the Gang would move in on Mary the minute that he was out of the door? They had been in pursuit of her for ages, Mary had gone into hiding and was persuaded to emerge, only to be unlawfully arrested, detained in Risley and then incarcerated in Denbigh…

In Idwal’s retirement the world was still not free of Sir Idwal’s poison. He moved from Cardiff to Oxford and became a Fellow of St John’s College, Oxford, Idwal’s old alma mater, other alumni including Edward du Cann, Kingsley Amis, Philip Larkin, David Lewis Davies the Dean of the Maudsley and, in a later generation, Miranda. Idwal enjoyed a late career in the City, assuming a number of Directorships, including that of the Halifax and Standard Chartered Bank.

Sir Idwal managed to notice that I had received a mortgage offer from the Halifax which would enable F and I to move to Scotland in 1998. It’s all in the documentation that I’ve been recently perusing, Forensic Angel Jackie Ehlen noted everything. The Gang hated me but they didn’t actually want me to wave goodbye to their manor, so Sir Idwal’s influence was utilised… Read about Idwal in eg. ‘The Naked Civil Servants’.

Jackie Ehlen even noted that my friend’s baby had died and I was being ‘remarkably supportive’. Of course I was Jackie, I’d known my friend since we were 12, she was Remarkably Supportive to me when the Gang were in pursuit and paid for it by being forced out of her media career by Michael Grade and Paul Fox and then her baby died at the hands of Musgrove Park Hospital in 1999, due to the gross negligence of Top Doc Robert Fox (a relation of Sir Paul? Or a relation of Dr Liam? Who knows…).

My friend’s film script was plagiarised by Stephen Spielberg as well, beat that. It was admitted, my friend was told that Spielberg had done this to many other unknown scriptwriters but Spielberg was So Big that my friend would never win in Court against him. She was told the same re Robert Fox and the dead baby, the dead baby that caused her much more distress than Spielberg plagiarising her work. See the source image

The film received poor reviews. Had my friend been allowed to use her own script, the film would have been much better. But then I saw a really mediocre book on sale in the academic bookshop in Aberystwyth that I know was plagiarised from a proposal written by Brown and me by Profs Kirsti Bohata of Swansea University Professor Kirsti Bohataand Katie Gramich Professor Katie Gramich BA (Wales) MA (London) PhD (Alberta)of Cardiff University.See the source image

For God’s sake Swansea and Cardiff, if you’re going to plagiarise my ideas, do find someone competent to undertake the work.

The Duchess was the Director of National Foundation for Youth Music, 1999-2007. In March 2004, Katharine became Patron of national charity, Making Music aka the National Federation of Music Societies, an umbrella organisation for amateur and voluntary music groups. Katharine is among the co-founders of Future Talent, a charity that helps young children with low-income backgrounds pursue a career in music.

In August 2016, the Duchess became an ambassador for Samaritans after a volunteer at the Teesside branch contacted her; the Duchess had previously been its Royal Patron, 1971-99.

There was serious trouble with regard to the Sams in Gwynedd as a result of the Sams being run by the Gang and refusing to help psych patients. Some of us had known about this for years and although some Sams volunteers had resigned in disgust and representation was made to the highest authorities at Sams HQ, no effective action was taken and not a word appeared in any media outlets re the dysfunctional crisis-ridden Bangor Sams for years. The only hint of adverse publicity emerged in approx. 2013/14 when a Young Persons Mental Health Story In The Media mentioned that they had attended Ysbyty Gwynedd A&E when suicidal, spent 20 hours left alone in an empty room and were then discharged by an Angel who told them that the psych services would not treat them but gave them the phone number of the Sams. Who refused to offer them help on the grounds that the Sams aren’t Trained to deal with psych patients.Spamalot poster.jpg

The Duchess is a supporter of UNICEF.

The Duke and Duchess’s eldest son George Philip Nicholas Windsor, Earl of St Andrews (born 26 June 1962), was educated at Eton and Downing College, Cambridge. A former diplomat, the Earl is a Trustee of the SOS Children’s Villages UK charity and a Patron of the Association for International Cancer Research. In April 2012, the Earl also became a Trustee of the Next Century Foundation, a charity working throughout the Middle East. The Earl is a Trustee of the Global eHealth Foundation and Patron of the Welsh Sinfonia. On 30 March 2017, the Earl was installed as Chancellor of the University of Bolton.See the source image

On 9 January 1988, St Andrews married Sylvana TomaselliSylvana Palma Windsor, Countess of St Andrews (née Tomaselli, previously Jones; born 28 May 1957), a Canadian-born academic and historian. She is usually known professionally as Dr Sylvana Tomaselli. Tomaselli was born in Newfoundland and educated in Canada and England. Sylvana married Earl St Andrews on 9 January 1988.

Tomaselli is an academic based at Cambridge; she became a Fellow of St John’s College, Cambridge in 2004. She specialises in French and British political theory in the 18th century, especially the history of womanhood. See the source imageSee the source imageSee the source imageSee the source image

Tomaselli is the translator of Book II of the Seminar of Jacques Lacan, The Ego in Freud’s Theory and in the Technique of Psychoanalysis. See the source image Tomaselli is a founding member of the European Centre for the Philosophy of Gender, Siegen, Germany and is currently Director of Studies in History Part I and Social & Political Sciences at St John’s College, Cambridge and also acts as a pastoral tutor for students of Natural Sciences at St John’s College.See the source image

Tomaselli has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.

Earl St Andrews and Sylvan have three children, ie. the grandchildren of Big Mason and HRH Katharine: Edward Windsor, Lord Downpatrick, Lady Marina Windsor, and Lady Amelia Windsor.

Edward Edmund Maximilian George Windsor, Lord Downpatrick (born 2 December 1988), known professionally as Eddy Downpatrick, is the co-founder and creative director of the British fashion label FIDIR. Lord Downpatrick.jpgDiana was Downpatrick’s godmother, but she died before he got to know her well. 

Downpatrick is close to his third cousin Princess Beatrice of York and to his younger sisters, Lady Marina and Lady Amelia Windsor. His great-grandmother Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, Phil the Greek’s cousin, was the Royal family’s fashion icon in the post-war era, although I suspect that as ever with the Royals – and Kirsti Bohata and Katie Gramich – Princess Marina was seriously talked up.Beautiful Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent wearing her Bow Brooch. | Marina, Duchess of Kent's Royal Diamond Bow Brooch Prince Edward, Prince Phillip, Casa Real, Royal House, Royal Life, George Duke, Greek Royal Family, Prince Michael Of Kent, Royal Diamond

After Eton, Downpatrick enrolled at Keble College, Oxford, alma mater of Sir Peter Morrison and Keith Best. At Oxford Downpatrick was the President of the Bullingdon Club. Cameron and Boris were famously members of the Bullingdon and Call Me Dave had difficulty dealing with the bad PR when this was made public, the Bullingdon being notorious for its sole purpose of existing to enable its members to smash up bars and restaurants, members being rich enough to pay their way out of criminal prosecution. Boris has never suffered the sort of embarrassment that Call Me Dave did, probably because Boris’s other activities eclipsed his youthful adventures with the Bullingdon and he never even attempted to dissociate himself from it all.

Downpatrick wanted to join the British Army after Oxford, but had not recovered from rugby injuries.

Downpatrick seems to be a rather unlikely fashion designer. He first had the idea to launch a fashion brand while hiking in Scotland in 2009, but decided to first focus on his studies and career as a financial analyst at JP Morgan. However the pull of silk and taffeta eventually overcame the ex-Bullingdon, Rugger playing, Army aspiring, City financier Downpatrick and he left JP Morgan and began working as a fashion designer in 2016. Downpatrick launched fashion label FIDIR with Justine Dalby in 2017. The brand is a collection of outdoor-wear and accessories. Rugger Bugger Downpatrick designs handbags, wallets, sweatshirts, wash bags, and T-shirts. His designs are inspired by the Scottish Highlands.

Downpatrick’s gran’s position as the Patron of the hospital dominated by Bodger et al could have stood Downpatrick in good stead re his Fashion Label. One of Bodger’s sons was the business partner of Wayne Hemingway of Red Or Dead and Bodger sporting his Red Or Dead Doc Martens at graduation ceremonies and Top Docs’ dinners did wonders for Red Or Dead, as of course did Bodger’s friendship with Cilla and her circle. Bodger’s role in an international trafficking ring supplying meat to the Film Industry won’t have done any harm to business either. See the source image

Bodger died in Oct 2014 and I began this blog in 2016. I’ve been flattered to discover that there were people keeping tabs on me after I left my job at Bangor, was unlawfully detained in psych hospitals for many months  etc and that when word was out that I was a free woman and publishing with my former colleagues again, people knew that it was only a matter of time before I Published The Story…

I wonder if Bodger’s bereaved family needed a boost at that time what with the Don having Passed Over? Downpatrick would have already made the Big Money friendships useful to a Fashion Brand during his time at JP Morgan.

Downpatrick’s sister Lady Marina has a low profile, but his other sister Lady Amelia Sophia Theodora Mary Margaret Windsor (born 24 August 1995) is quite a megastar of a fashion model. Lady Amelia’s paternal great-great grandparents were George V and Mary of Teck. King George V’s wife Mary was the sister of Prince Alexander of Teck aka the Earl of Athlone. The Earl was Chairman of the Middlesex Hospital and Chancellor of London University; Gwynne Trained at the Middlesex and received his medical degree from London University when the Earl was Chancellor…

This sort of thing matters, not to me, but it matters to these grandiose institutions who splash the names of Royals over their headed notepaper and their PR material. It has now blown up in their faces in a very big way, yet still everyone continues to issue silly press statements of lies. What was needed was a frank admission, many years ago, that things had gone very wrong at St George’s, the Middlesex etc and steps to cleanse those institutions of criminals should have been taken. Murdering witnesses, destroying the careers of whistleblowers and appointing Royals as Patrons of yet more charidees run by these scumbags was not the answer. Neither was en masse plagiarism of other people’s work.

In 2013 Lady Amelia was presented to society at the le Bal des débutantes.

Lady Amelia is signed with Storm Model Management. In 2016 she was the cover girl for Tatler. See the source imageIn February 2017 Lady Amelia walked the runway for Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week and also walked in Dolce & Gabbana’s 2019 Spring collection. She was featured on the August 2017 cover of Vogue Japan. In 2018, Lady Amelia released a collaboration with Penelope Chilvers for a line of shoes, and modelled for the line in a video campaign in Spain. 20% of the proceeds from Lady Amelia’s shoe collection were donated to War Child,. Lady Amelia has worked for Chanel, Azzedine Alaia, and interned at BVLGARI.

Azzedine Alaia was a huge name in fashion, entered the business in the 1950s and I don’t have the capacity to discuss him extensively here. What did leap out at me was the info that Alaia was close to Naomi Campbell and she considered him to be a father figure to her from the age of 16. Naomi grew up in Streatham, on the turf of St George’s and in the vicinity of Madam Cyn’s brothel at Ambleside Avenue, Streatham. Madam Cyn’s establishment served as a networking venue for the more senior members of Dafydd’s Gang’s south London branch. St George’s consultants were found on the premises in every police raid but they were never mentioned, the world instead had a good laugh at the procession of peers, lawyers, judges, clergy etc who were always dug up in the raids on Ambleside Avenue.

The usual celebs have Worn Alaia, but one name difficult to surpass as an advert is Michelle Obama a regular Alaïa client. When First Lady, Michelle wore a formal black knit sleeveless dress with a ruffled skirt designed by Alaïa to the NATO dinner with heads of state in Strasbourg, France, on 3 April 2009. Also in 2009, Michelle Obama wore an Alaïa dress to the American Ballet Theatre‘s opening-night Spring Gala in New York. Michelle’s choice of fashion by Alaia, a Tunisian couturier, broke with the tradition of American First Ladies who had worn only the clothes of American designers to such events.

Have You Come Far?

Alaia was a close friend of US painter and film director Julian Schnabel, who in turn was one of Andy Warhol’s/Lou Reed’s crowd.

Matt Moulding (February 1972) is founder of THG. Moulding was born in Burnley, Lancashire – constituency MP Babs Castle, succeeded by Jack Straw –  and attended Fisher More High School in Colne. Moulding studied industrial economics at the University of Nottingham before going on to qualify as a chartered accountant. His father was a tarmac contractor and his mother was an antiques trader.

Matt went on to work at the Caudwell Group, where he became finance director of the distribution business, working directly with John Caudwell.

In 2004, Moulding founded The Hut Group, originally inspired from buying a CD online. He said that he recognised that selling online could be “fundamentally so much cheaper”. After investing £500,000 in the company, it took the business three years to break even, initially selling CDs online from the Channel Islands to avoid VAT. Moulding persuaded Sir Terry Leahy and Sir Stuart Rose to become early investors. Following the launch of the iPhone and rising in digital music streaming Moulding shifted his focus to selling other products online, and acquired a number of other e-commerce businesses, including IWantOneOfThose.com, Lookfantastic, MyProtein, Zavvi, and Illamasqua. In 2014, KKR bought a 20 percent of the business. As of 2016, THG operated 100 e-commerce websites. As of 2018, the company operated 166 websites. In 2018, it was announced that Moulding would be stepping down as CEO to become Executive Chairman.

Moulding lives in Northwich, and has four children. In 2015, Moulding signed a letter supporting the Conservative Party in the 2015 General Election. According to The Sunday Times Rich List in May 2019, Matt has a net worth of £600 million. In an interview Moulding gave to The Sunday Times in July 2019, he said he earns “about £1 million” a year. Matt is a supporter of the Seashell Trust.

Matt’s former business partner John David Caudwell (born 7 October 1952) is a British billionaire businessman and philanthropist who co-founded the mobile phone retailer Phones 4u. He also invests in fashion, real estate and other industries, and Chairs Caudwell Children, a children’s charity, and Caudwell LymeCo, promoting the health of Lyme disease sufferers in the UK. Caudwell is known for being the UK’s largest taxpayer, but has taken many steps to avoid paying tax.  According to the Sunday Times Rich List in 2019, Caudwell is worth £1.576 billion. On the Forbes 2016 list of the world’s billionaires, he was ranked #722 with a net worth of US$2.4 billion.

Caudwell was born in Birmingham but moved with his family as a baby to Stoke-on-Trent and was raised in Shelton, Staffordshire, and with his brother Brian attended Shelton Church of England School, and then Berry Hill High School. Caudwell become an apprentice at Michelin, and worked for several years there as an engineering foreman while gaining an HNC in mechanical engineering. Whilst working at Michelin Caudwell also ran a corner shop and started a mail order business selling clothing to motor bikers, both of which were successful.

In 1986 Caudwell became aware of the first of the then new mobile phones and discovered that there were large profit margins possible, so contacted the American handset maker Motorola to see if he could do a deal. With his brother Brian, in 1987 Caudwell registered Midland Mobile Phones as a mobile phone wholesaler, taking 26 Motorola mobiles at £1,350 each The company made a loss every month for the first two years of operations. As the company developed from a small dealership to a wholesale distributor, turnover expanded to £13 million in 1991, making it the UK’s largest independent distributor of mobile phones. Turnover increased from £13 million in 1991 to over £1 billion in 2000. In 1996 and 1997, the Caudwell Group was named the UK’s fastest-growing company for two years in succession.

Caudwell’s aggressive expansion with Phones 4u into the retail space created a professional rivalry with Charles Dunstone who built the other UK mobile phone powerhouse, Carphone Warehouse. Dunstone’s success was forged in the retail side of mobile, but the Caudwell empire was built on the success of wholesaling with 20:20 Distribution – which became one of the largest handset distributors in Europe – and Singlepoint, an airtime reseller for Vodafone. The dominance of 20:20 in the fast-growing UK mobile market paved the way for aggressive expansion into retail and accessories, with the development of Phones 4u and Dextra. By 2003, the Caudwell Group employed over 8,000 people worldwide and was selling 26 phones every minute.

In 2003 Caudwell sold Singlepoint to Vodafone for £405m (then $648m). Caudwell completed the sale of the wider business on 26 September 2006, when it was revealed that the Caudwell Group had been sold for a £1.46 billion to private equity firms Providence Equity Partners and Doughty Hanson. Caudwell made use of a tax allowance on the sale which limited his tax liability, stating had this not been available, he would have found loopholes to avoid paying anything.

Caudwell is also the owner of the South African F1 Powerboat racing team Caudwell Racing which has competed in the championship since 2012.

In 1999, Caudwell was appointed as the President of the North Staffordshire branch of the NSPCC and became the regional representative for the Full Stop campaign. Of the appointment, he says: “I was initially approached by the NSPCC to sponsor a cricket match. As is my way I got stuck in, took the whole thing over and was determined to raise as much money as I could.”

Caudwell founded the charity Caudwell Children in 2000. It became a national charity in 2006 and as of 2016 Caudwell is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Of the charity, he said: “I wanted to make sure that every penny that was raised would be put to the best use and spent on the children that needed it. My family puts about £2 million a year towards Caudwell Children. In addition I put in a lot of my time and I do a lot of networking. [But] the truth is my fortune isn’t enough to help all the children that need help.”

Caudwell Children has proved controversial because it promotes unproven and dubious health practices and has aligned itself with anti-vaccinationists. The National Autistic Society asked Caudwell’s charity to remove claims from its website that it had the society’s support.

In October 2011, John Caudwell made a “significant” six-figure donation to Middleport Pottery (one of the last working Victorian pot banks in Britain) in Stoke-on-Trent, through The Prince’s Regeneration Trust. Image result for jimmy savile and prince charles imagesIn October 2012, Caudwell was one of three principal private donors for the London’s Bomber Command Memorial Appeal.

In February 2013, Caudwell became one of the first Britons to sign up for Bill Gates and Warren BuffettsGiving Pledge, which calls on billionaires to commit at least half their wealth to charity during their lifetime. Image result for jimmy savile and prince charles images

As of July 2013, Caudwell Children has raised £27 million since its inception in 2000. As a result of his charitable work and his financial success, John Caudwell now plans to give away at least half his wealth when he dies.

Caudwell key charitable pursuit is supporting Caudwell Children; See the source imagehowever, he is also a significant and regular contributor to and supporter of a number of charitable causes including the Prince’s Regeneration Trust, Marie Curie, the Elton John AIDS Foundation, ARK (Absolute Return for Kids), Great Ormond Street Hospital and The Carers Trust, amongst others.

Caudwell still donates to the NSPCC, and undertakes regular 1,000-mile charity bike rides to raise funds for many children’s charities. On one fundraising bike ride from Lands End to John O’Groats in 2012, he raised £58,021 for Caudwell Children.See the source image

Caudwell has been awarded accolades for his philanthropic efforts. On 8 December 2012 at The Noble Gift Gala, he was presented with The Noble Gift Philanthropreneur Award by Hollywood actress Eva Longoria for his dedication to charity work.

Caudwell Properties Limited is involved in property acquisition, management and development. While much of the Caudwell portfolio is solid commercial real estate, more recently he has acquired property in Mayfair in London, the core of which is Audley Square Car Park and some surrounding buildings.

In April 2010, Caudwell donated £2,000 to Conservative MP Bill Cash‘s General Election fund. The Bill Cash who has concealed organised abuse and associated wrongdoing. See previous posts.

In 2019, Caudwell was reported to have donated £500,000 to the Conservative Party ahead of the 2019 UK General Election. John Caudwell also gave interviews stating that he and many other wealthy individuals would leave the UK if the Labour Party gained power. You have nothing to worry about John, even if the Labour Party are re-elected at any time, you’ll only have to explain that you are Connected To Bodger’s Friends The Top Docs and the Labour Party will roll over to have its tummy tickled by a donor to the Tory Party such as you. And they won’t mention the tax evasion either.See the source image

Caudwell was married to Kate McFarlane for 25 years, ending in 2001, and they had three children. He then had a relationship with violinist Jane Burgess, with whom he had a daughter. Caudwell was then in a long term relationship with Claire Johnson for 15 years, with whom he has a son. They separated in 2014.

In 2015, Caudwell claimed that 11 family members including himself, his ex-wife Kate McFarlane, their two daughters Rebekah and Rhiannon, and his son Rufus had been diagnosed with Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a tricky one but I’m fairly sure that it is not that prevalent, it’s not as if it’s the common cold where everyone in the house comes down with it.

The Hut Group sued Oliver Cookson over the sale of Myprotein in 2011. Cookson was sued for £15 million, with The Hut Group claiming overestimation affected the valuation of the company when they bought it. Cookson counter sued for £12.7 million claiming a breach of warranty and fraudulent mis-representation. The matter went to the High Court in London in October 2014 and after a month-long trial judgement was given by William Blair in November 2014 giving Oliver Cookson an overall net result win of £6.5m in damages. William Blair is the brother of that well-known billionaire philanthropist Miranda.

At the costs hearing in December 2014, the judge awarded a payment of just under £7.5 million to be made by The Hut Group to Cookson and the Trust in respect of all of the claims and counterclaims in the action and one third of the costs incurred by Mr Cookson and the Trust. Oliver Cookson and the Trust appealed the court’s decision to award The Hut Groups damages. The court of appeal dismissed the appeal on 22 March 2016.

 

After graduating from St Mary’s School, Ascot, Lady Amelia spent a gap year in India and Thailand before studying French and Italian at the University of Edinburgh. Lady Amelia was named in the Vanity Fair International Best Dressed List in 2017. She was dubbed “the most beautiful member of the royal family” by Tatler. In 2011 Lady Amelia attended the wedding of her cousin Prince William of Wales to Kate.

One thing that interests me now that I know how huge Bodger’s wrongdoing was and that it was all linked to the Fashion, Modelling and Film Industry, was the contract that St George’s Hospital had with a Cosmetics Company, who purchased the placentas of the women who delivered at St George’s. Being a medical researcher I was never squeamish about things like placentas and I also knew that for some years the more expensive skin care products had often contained placenta. Rubbing placental cells on one’s skin won’t make a bit of difference, but a la the Active Liposomes and other pseudo-biological advertising material utilised by the Beauty industry, the placenta in skin cream was a seller, although women did giggle about ‘where are the placentas coming from??’ Even I wondered that, until I worked at St George’s…

The midwives at St George’s, like me, thought that the Beauty company buying the placentas was not that mind-blowing, but I bet those midwives and the Top Docs had a greater awareness than I did that St George’s would have incurred bad publicity from certain quarters if it ever became public that the placentas from new mothers were being chucked into huge chest freezers and flogged without patients’ knowledge or consent. (If there were any Magic Ingredients in placental cells that did wonders for one’s skin, the process of freezing those placentas will have destroyed them. Cells don’t like being frozen, it seriously buggers them up.) I also suspect that whichever company purchased the placentas were paying a great deal of money for them because I can’t imagine that many hospitals would have agreed to it. It had to have been Bodger’s links with the Fashion and Beauty industry that resulted in that contract…

If any readers know which company was paying Bodger good money for other people’s placentas, do let me know. Was it L’Oreal?? I think that they were one of those who pioneered placenta in their skin care products…

Readers!! The BIGGEST problem wasn’t just Bodger playing fast and loose with other people’s placentas, it was that Bodger knew as well as I did that the placentas will have made no difference at all to anyone who was purchasing expensive skin care products on the grounds that Clinical Trials had shown that this Reduced The Appearance Of Fine Lines or whatever lies were told… It was yet another research fraud endorsed by the Top Docs. Because they were making money flogging those placentas… 

Now Then. Questionable research has ‘demonstrated’ that injecting cells from foetuses into the brains of patients with certain neurodegenerative disorders effects improvement. We were told about this research when I was at Hammersmith in 1986-87; it was taking place in I think Sweden. Malcolm Alison, our course tutor at Hammersmith, told us that there was no way that anyone in the UK would ever get such research or treatment past an ethics committee… I am fairly sure that recently such ‘treatment’ for some neurodegenerative conditions has begun in the UK. What’s the betting that the mothers of the foetuses used have no idea?

This is in no way an anti-science stance. Sadly it is this gross abuse of patients that has led to the crisis of confidence in medical science, the rise of the anti-vaxxers etc. People also need to know that it is not usually the Clever Scientists who say and do anything to pursue their work; it is the Top Doctors who are more easily able to lie to patients, offer false reassurances etc, because it is so much an everyday part of their work. Scientists are much more poorly paid than Top Docs, have far less patient contact and tend to be much more anxious if it is suggested that all they need to do is lie their arses off to the patients.

Big Mason and HRH the Duchess of Kent’s  daughter Lady Helen Marina Lucy Taylor (née Windsor), was born at Coppins, a country house in Iver, Buckinghamshire. Lady Helen was educated at Eton End School in Datchet then at St Mary’s School, Wantage, and Gordonstoun. At Gordonstoun, Lady Helen was one of 20 sixth form girls at Gordonstoun.

She was called “Melons” in the popular press.

“I was slightly chubby, it was the boys at Gordonstoun who called me that. I think there are only about two people who call me that now. The original context has long gone” …”If having a pint of Tennents in the woods at Gordonstoun could be considered wild, then I was. The trouble with me and parties is I like to be in bed at 10.30. I did used to smoke but I was always terrified of drugs.”

So the ‘boys at Gordonstoun’ took the blame for the years of crude comments about Lady Helen in the British media. Good to know that teenaged boys were to blame when Helen was well into adulthood. Where’s the Campaign then Sister Hutt?

After Lady Melons – rhymes with Lady Helen, Geddit?? well no, it doesn’t, but it does if you’re a Sun Editor –  left Gordonstoun (where she had art classes), she was desperate to go to London and earn money, starting in 1984 at Christie’s auction house in their Contemporary Department.

1984, the year of the Gwynne Row! Phew, What A Scorcher! Gwynne was much worse than the mythical boys at Gordonstoun, but that was never mentioned in the tabloids. Sam Fox turned up to open the Octagon nightclub in Bangor in 1984, the venue in which Gwynedd social workers sold the kids from Ty’r Felin children’s home for sex… See ‘Local Accessories’ and ‘Are You Local?’. Then there was Conwy’s own Paula Yates, wife of St Bob who began her career as a ‘groupie’ and model for a soft porn mag…

Did the ‘boys at Gordonstoun’ force the kids from the children’s homes in north Wales to pose for porn with animals? Or was that someone else perhaps?

Lady Helen worked with the art dealer Karsten Schubert between 1987 and 1991, behind the front desk and was later credited with discovering Rachel Whiteread and Gary Hume, but confessed in a TV interview that she had turned down representing artist Damien Hirst. As Dafydd would say ‘Interesting, interesting’. I wondered who was behind the sudden success of the YBAs, including Rachel Whiteread. Lady Helen would not have the sort of knowledge or spotting skills to ever ‘see potential’ in Rachel Whiteread et al, so who was really propelling them to fame and fortune?

For 17 years, Lady Helen was a fashion ambassador and muse to Giorgio Armani. It’ll have been those boys at Gordonstoun up to no good again.

At 19, Lady Helen met Timothy Verner Taylor (b. 8 August 1963), an art dealer and the eldest son of Commander Michael Verner Taylor, RN and Susan Geraldine Percy. They married at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on 18 July 1992. The bride wore a Catherine Walker design, inspired by the boys at Gordonstoun. Giorgio Armani provided an outfit for Lady Helen’s wedding. In 1998, Lady Helen’s husband contracted Hodgkin’s disease and the Ah the Doctors they were wonderful.

Lady Helen and her husband have four children:

  • Columbus George Donald Taylor (born 6 August 1994)
  • Cassius Edward Taylor (born 26 December 1996)
  • Eloise Olivia Katherine Taylor (born 2 March 2003)
  • Estella Olga Elizabeth Taylor (born 21 December 2004)

Lady Helen is a Patron of the CLIC Sargent children’s cancer charity and a Trustee of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. I did say that the Ah the Doctors they were wonderful. Does Lady Helen know that the Royal Marsden were part of the big CRC/ICRF funded research fraud begun in 1988 when I was working for Vincent Marks, that involved Vincent’s mates and one of Tony Francis’s friends? It was exposed in 1990 and shortly after scandal, Prof Tim McElwain, one of those involved, was found dead. ‘Suicide. The Shame and Disgrace of it all’. Everyone else who lied, cheated and conspired, went on to hold senior positions in the NHS, cancer research or academia, except for one junior researcher who changed career. A lot of people knew those involved in that huge conspiracy, so it’s just as well that Tim McElwain isn’t alive to tell all or a lot of careers could be finished. Readers can find out more from my posts ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’. Obviously so many people built their careers on the back of that fraud and by keeping schtum about who organised it that not all the guilty parties are named in my posts…

Lady Helen’s younger brother – Big Mason and HRH’s third child – is Lord Nicholas Charles Edward Jonathan Windsor (born 25 July 1970). Lord Nicholas Windsor was born at King’s College Hospital, London. He was baptised at Windsor Castle and his godparents included Carlo and Donald Coggan, at the time Archbishop of York and later Archbishop of Canterbury. Windsor was educated at Westminster Under School and then Harrow School. Lord Nicholas later attended Harris Manchester College, Oxford,

In a private ceremony in 2001 Lord Nicholas was received into the Catholic Church. On 14 July 2011, Nicholas became an Honorary Vice-President of the Friends of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, an Anglican Ordinariate within the Catholic Church. He has voiced strong views on the issue of abortion, which he has stated is, as a societal threat, “worse than al-Qaeda“.

Lord Nicholas, you might like to have a word with your mum’s pals at St George’s on that particular matter. Bodger has Passed On now, but I’ll remind you that the Bodger whom your family launched so many lifeboats to protect, as a Nice Young Doctor working in Washington DC in the mid-1960s, conducted live experiments on late gestation foetuses, whom Bodger then killed. Bodger acquired the foetuses by carrying out illegal abortions on women in late pregnancy whom he told were in need of a hysterectomy. Most of them will have known that they were pregnant, so I assume that lies were told about the baby being dead or the women being so ill that the baby was a gonner anyway, etc. Bodger then made merry with the foetuses, who, even in those days, would have had some chance of survival if they had been cared for as premature babies rather than experimental material for Bodger to kill once he’d finished with them.

None of this was a secret Lord Nicholas, Bodger published it in one of the biggest Obs and Gynae journals in the world. He then returned to the UK and became a Leading Doctor. BTW, the stated purpose for Bodger’s experiments in Washington was his interest in developing an artificial placental system. What was Bodger still banging on about when I worked for him in 1990? Er, how he was trying to develop an artificial placental system. If Bodger was, I never saw him or indeed anyone else busy doing that.

See ‘Now Then’ for full details of Bodger’s glorious moments…

Nicholas Windsor met his future wife, Paola Doimi de Lupis Frankopan Šubić Zrinski, at a party in New York City in 1999 to mark the Millennium. They married on 4 November 2006 in the Church of St Stephen of the Abyssinians in the Vatican and Paola became Lady Nicholas Windsor. Nicholas was the first member of the English Royal family to be married there since the Reformation. As required by the Royal Marriages Act 1772, the Brenda consented to the marriage. If Brenda had said no, would the boys at Gordonstoun have been blamed?

Lord and Lady Nicholas Windsor had their first child, a son, Albert Louis Philip Edward Windsor, on 22 September 2007 at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London, Bodger’s former place of employment. Albert is the eighth grandchild for the Big Mason and HRH Duchess of Kent. See the source image

Lady Nicholas gave birth to the couple’s second child, Leopold Ernest Augustus Guelph Windsor, on 8 September 2009 at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Leopold was baptised by Angelo Cardinal Comastri in St. Peter’s in the Vatican on 29 May 2010. A third son, Louis Arthur Nicholas Felix Windsor, was born 27 May 2014.See the source image

In 2011, Windsor was appointed to the Pontifical Academy for Life. He is co-signatory of the San José Articles which promote the protection of the unborn child.

In 2007, Windsor accepted the invitation to become Patron of Bromley Mind. The position is a public statement of his support for its work and he makes a practical contribution from time to time by supporting special events and fundraising campaigns. If this blog hasn’t finished off the reputation of MIND for good, Nicholas becoming Patron of the Bromley branch has.

Nicholas, Meet Bodger, at an Important Meeting, with his friend a Famous Paediatrician:

Bodger was a good friend of Brave Wendy, who was also in attendance at the Important Meeting. Brave Wendy is an abortionist who has flouted the law on abortion since her days as a med student at the London Hospital; Brave Wendy performs numerous abortions on women who have been trafficked by her friends/colleagues. Brave Wendy boasts of performing over 20 abortions on the same woman ‘if needed’.

Nicholas Windsor has worked for the Refugee Council in London, the DePaul Trust for the homeless and in a school for autistic children. He was a Visiting Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Centre in Washington DC. See the source imageNicholas is a Trustee of the Catholic National Library UK and The Right to Life Charitable Trust, an educational body whose goal is the full protection of the unborn child. Windsor is the Royal Patron – along with his wife Paola – of the Christian Heritage Centre at Stonyhurst, a charitable endeavour to make the historic collections of Stonyhurst College and the story that they tell more widely accessible to young people in the surrounding areas.

Nicholas Windsor wrote for the American journal First Things on the subject of abortion, an article which was entered into the United States Congressional Record by Congressman Chris Smith. He has written in the Telegraph and The Catholic Herald on pro-life issues.

Lady Nicholas Windsor (born Paola Louise Marica Doimi de Lupis) is the daughter of Louis, Prince Frankopan, Count Doimi de Lupis, born in Split, Croatia. Lady Nicholas’s father is a member of the old Croatian and Italian nobility and came to England after WW II when the family fortune was seized by the Yugoslavian Communist Gov’t. Prince Frankopan went to school in the UK and then to Oxford University. Prince Frankopan is a barrister, a member of Middle Temple, along with Ronnie Waterhouse, Paddy Mayhew, Greville Janner, Dame Barbara Mills and others who have been so very helpful to the Gang.See the source image

Lady Nicholas’s mother, Ingrid Detter, is a distinguished Professor Emeritus of International Law at Stockholm University.

Lady Nicholas herself attended Cambridge under her birth name of ‘Paola Louise Marica Doimi de Lupis’ (in 1989); by 1993 her entry includes the added ‘Frankopan Šubic’, while parenthetically including her original name for clarification. The announcement of Lady Nicholas’s marriage refers to her parents as ‘Don‘ and ‘Donna’. She has one sister, Christina and three brothers, Peter, Nicholas, and Lawrence.

Paola Windsor was educated at St Paul’s Girls’ School and at Wycombe Abbey, Paola read Classics at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge and took a Diplôme d’Etudes Approfondies (M.Phil. equivalent) at Paris IV, La Sorbonne, submitting a thesis entitled L’autorité de l’État (English: “The authority of the state”). See the source image

Paola: Next time that you feel inclined to write something on that subject, do send me an e mail because there are just so many people that I could introduce you to who have felt the boot of the state in the form of your family in their chops. Many of them died as a result, but I can find a few survivors as it were…

Paola, as Paola Frankopan, has written for The Tatler, where she is a contributing editor and for Vogue USA.

Is Paola a Satirist of huge proportions by any chance?

Paola has published an introduction to the history of the Sanctuary of Trsat (Trsatska Sveta Kuća in Croatian).

Paola’s brother Peter is having an even bigger laugh than Paola.

Peter Frankopan (born 22 March 1971) attended Eton College, then completed his first degree at Jesus College, Cambridge before getting his D.Phil at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. Peter is a senior research fellow at Worcester College, Oxford and Director of the Oxford Centre for Byzantine Research.

In 2002, Frankopan and his wife Jessica opened Crowley Manor, a boutique hotel and spa on a historic estate in the Cotswolds. They have since expanded their hotel chain, called ‘A Curious Group of Hotels’, to include the Portobello Hotel in London, Canal House in Amsterdam and L’Hotel Paris in Paris. The restaurant in L’Hotel Paris has been awarded a Michelin star.

Peter has served as President of the Croatian Cricket Federation and has played for the Croatian national team.

Peter and his wife Jessica, daughter of Tim Sainsbury, have four children and live in Oxford. Together, they oversee a £14 million trust funded by Jessica’s family’s supermarket fortune.

Tim Sainsbury is the youngest son of Lord Sainsbury and his wife Doreen. His elder brothers are Lord Sainsbury of Preston Candover, a former Chairman of Sainsbury’s, and the late Simon Sainsbury. Lord Sainsbury of Turville, the former Labour Minister for Science, is a cousin. Tim’s great-grandparents, John James Sainsbury and Mary Ann Staples, established a grocer’s at 173 Drury Lane in 1869 which became the British supermarket chain Sainsbury’s.

Tim Sainsbury was Conservative MP for Hove, 1973-97 and served as Thatch’s junior Minister in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, 24 July 1989-23 July 1990, (under Foreign Secretaries John Major and then Douglas Hurd) and held a number of Ministerial posts in Major’s Gov’t, including Minister of State for Trade (1990–92) and Minister for Industry (1992–94). Tim was President of the Hove Conservative Association from 1998 until 2002 and was President of the Conservative Friends of Israel from 1997 until 2005. Tim is a Patron of the Tory Reform Group.  In 2019 Tim announced his intention to vote Liberal Democrat at the General Election.

Sainsbury and his two brothers funded an extension to the National Gallery at a cost of around £50 million, which opened in 1991 as the Sainsbury Wing. Tim was Chairman of the Somerset House Trust, 1997-2002 and was President of a £25m campaign for Worcester College, Oxford. He was appointed as a Trustee of the Victoria & Albert Museum on 17 December 2003 and was re-appointed on 17 December 2007. Tim Sainsbury is Chairman of the V&A’s International Council, which aims to secure major donations for the FuturePlan.

Tim has two daughters, Camilla (born 1962) and Jessica (born 1970), and two sons, James (born 1962) and Alexander (born 1968). Camilla was married until late 2015 to Shaun Woodward the MP who defected from the Tories to Labour, under circumstances that favoured the Gang, as discussed in previous posts.

Tim Sainsbury joined Sainsbury’s in 1956. In 1959 he became Deputy to Fred Salisbury (the first non-Sainsbury Director of the company). Tim was appointed Director of Estates, Architects and Engineers in 1962. When the Company listed on the London Stock Exchange on 12 July 1973, as J Sainsbury plc, his family at the time kept control with an 85% stake. Whilst his cousin, David Sainsbury, inherited his father Robert Sainsbury‘s entire 18% shareholding, Tim Sainsbury had to split his father Alan Sainsbury’s 18% stake with his brothers JD Sainsbury and Simon Sainsbury, and so they held 6% each. It is believed that Sir Robert Sainsbury gave David Sainsbury his entire shareholding (rather than split it between David and his three daughters) so that David would have more votes at the table. David only joined Sainsbury’s Personnel Department when he did not get the grades needed to pursue his ambition to become a scientist.

Tim Sainsbury stepped down from the Board in 1983 to further pursue his career in politics. In 1992 his brother JD Sainsbury retired and was succeeded as Chairman and Chief Executive by his cousin, David Sainsbury. Tesco overtook Sainsbury’s to become the UK’s largest supermarket chain in 1995. As a result, it is believed that JD Sainsbury asked Tim to re-join Sainsbury’s as a Non-Executive Director in 1995 to support David. David stepped down in 1998 to pursue a career in politics and in 1999, Tim stepped down as Non-Executive Director, meaning no member of the Sainsbury family now works for the Company. At the time Tim vowed “to remain a major and committed shareholder.” On 13 January 2006, the company was notified that Sir Timothy Sainsbury no longer has a notifiable interest in the company’s issued share capital, such interest now being below 3%. His wife, who had held the other half of his 6% stake, dropped her interest in Sainsbury’s below 3% the previous week.

When Sainsbury’s was the target for takeover bids during 2007, it is believed that Tim was unwilling to sell his remaining stake at any price, wanting to keep the company independent, as opposed to David Sainsbury, who indicated he was willing to let the Sainsbury’s Board open its books for due diligence if someone offered him a price of 600 pence per share or more. As of August 2009, Tim Sainsbury together with his wife were still thought to own just under 3% of the retailer. The Sainsbury family as a whole control approximately 15% of Sainsbury’s.

In the Sunday Times Rich List 2008 Tim’s family fortune was estimated at £1.3 billion.

Lord David Sainsbury of Turville stars in previous posts, which provide substantial details as to Lord David’s acquiring a peerage and then a job as Science Minister in the New Labour Gov’t after he donated an enormous sum to the Labour Party; how Lord David established the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health that curiously promoted New Labour’s policies and was shamelessly plugged throughout NVQ training material for mental health courses in the years around the millennium (students were told repeatedly in the course literature that they could acquire information and resources from the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health); how Lord David closed the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health and began funding whole wings of research institutes carrying out ‘independent’ research into neuroscience/neuropsychology; and how Lord Sainsbury was appointed Chancellor of Cambridge University after giving a massive bung to that institution. UK Health/Science Policy – as ordered by David Sainsbury!

In the heyday of Thatch’s Gov’t, a radio phone in to Cecil Parkinson included a call from a young woman who quoted a few figures re Tim Sainsbury’s family fortune and asked Cecil how someone from such a background could ever understand the Ordinary Voter. Cecil pompoused away about how brilliant it was that Tim Sainsbury who would not need to work at all if he didn’t want to was prepared to Serve on a miniscule Ministerial salary, such was Tim’s commitment to the Man In The Street.

I would not suggest that a rich person could never be an effective, genuine MP/Minister or that a rich person would never want to serve in public life for noble reasons. However evidence re the Sainsbury family per se suggests that there was nothing selfless about their Desire To Serve; indeed they shamelessly purchased their political careers and in the case of David, bankrolled policy that they promoted as Ministers when they had no understanding or knowledge of the field at all. If David had worked at bagging the credentials for a career in science and learned some science, he would know that the nonsense promoted by his Centres and Institutions will never work as Health Policy.

 

Ken Clarke stood down as Health Secretary on 2 Nov 1990 and was appointed as Secretary of State for Education and Science.

With regard to my adventures as a patient at Springfield after I had been effectively hounded out of St George’s once Bodger and the BMA had colluded with Howe, Heseltine, Hurd et al and deposed Thatch, and I had been arrested shortly after on serious charges as the Drs Francis perjured themselves on a scale as never before, I was admitted to Springfield on 16 Jan 1991, after receiving a home visit from Robin Jacobson, a Springfield consultant, on 15 Jan 1991. I was discharged from Springfield on 7 Feb 1991.

One thing that I remember Jacobson telling me during that visit after I told him of the rampant abuse and criminality in north Wales was that Springfield had a reputation for excellence and there was even an office in Springfield with a patients’ right lawyer. I have mentioned this before on the blog, but I’ll flag it up again here: Springfield was SO BAD that if anyone is serious about investigating the Westminster Paedophile Ring or indeed any serious crime re organised abuse and Class A drugs in south London stemming from that time, they need to trace the lawyers staffing that ‘lawyers office’ and ask them how they managed not to raise the alarm re what was happening.

I might have stated in previous posts that I was admitted to Daffodil Ward in Springfield; it was actually Crocus Ward, I’ve re-checked the paperwork…

Atkinson Morley/Springfield Consultant Psychiatrist Tom Burns had ‘assessed’ me six months before this admission, after Nita Mitchell-Heggs, the St George’s Occ Health Physician, insisted that I see the ‘loveliest man that I know’. Tom’s manner was very different to the usual unpleasant not very bright psychiatrist and we had a nice chat. As I was telling him about Gwynne, Dafydd et al, imagine my surprise when Tom interrupted me and snapped angrily ‘You think that I don’t believe you? You think that I’m naïve don’t you? Well I do believe you, I’m not naïve and I know that this sort of thing is going on.’ Tom went on to tell me that psychiatry attracts ‘disturbed people’ and it was causing big problems. Tom reported back to Nita that I wasn’t psychotic but probably had a Paranoid Personality Disorder.

In Dec 1990, when the Drs Francis had me arrested, Tom told Nita that he didn’t think that he had anything to offer when she asked him if he’d help out. After being arrested on the basis of the lies to the police – backed up by the MDU – told by the Drs Francis in Dec 1990, just after Thatch resigned and Major became PM, my first Court appearance in north Wales after being charged with threatening to kill and threatening to commit criminal damage was scheduled for 29 Jan 1991. I’ve only just noticed from my documents that Robin Jacobson was ringing Alwyn Jones my solicitor, who told Jacobson that because I was in hospital I wouldn’t need to attend the Court hearing. Because so many lies had been told, the charges against me were changing virtually every day and Jacobson noted this on the records. Not that Jacobson acknowledged that the charges were changing because no-one could produce the evidence of my crimes. Jacobson documented that the Drs Francis were so terrified of me that they didn’t dare substantiate their allegations.See the source image

So great was their fear that the Drs Francis just made up another load of cobblers that was then faithfully documented by the MDU, Top Docs, etc although those allegations couldn’t be substantiated either…

Tom Burns remained silent throughout it all.Image result for professor tom burns images

All serious charges disappeared once I had been forced out of my job at St George’s, refused all care and support and I’d returned to live in north Wales full time. Then some more charges appeared and in April 1991 I was back in London for my guest appearance at the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand!See the source image

Tom remained silent.Image result for professor tom burns images

As soon as I arrived at Springfield, Jacobson’s Senior Registrar Ruth White told me that I would not be staying at Springfield because I was a member of staff at St George’s, thus I would be transferred to the Maudsley. Ruth White was a close friend of a Top Doc in Bodger’s team whom I knew well. That Top Doc was one of the saner Docs who used to hint darkly to me that Bodger was involved in terrible things and was not the cuddly old bloke whom many people believed him to be. There were many ways in which this Top Doc would have known about the Gang; as a student she had been involved with the Anti-Nazi League and the Anti-Apartheid Movement and she was also training as an analyst. I have always presumed that she was one of the few sane people who was doing her best amidst the madness; I never ever saw her conducting herself in the way that some of her colleagues did and she was very much more level headed than most of them. She had only ever mentioned Ruth White in passing, but White was rude and hostile to me from our first meeting. I wondered if White feared that I had sensitive info about her but when I subsequently  acquired documentation and read about the cosy phone calls that White and Jacobson had held with Dafydd, Tony Francis and even Lucille Hughes before any Springfield staff had even met me, White’s unpleasantness became understandable. Springfield was in business with the Gang anyway…Image result for professor tom burns images

Angela Pumfrey, Robin Jacobson’s secretary, pp’d letters from Jacobson to D.G.E. Wood on 16 Jan 1991, although I had not been in contact with Wood for years. Angela also pp’d a letter from Jacobson to Lucille Hughes on 16 Jan 1991. Tony Francis had at some point recommended during a phone conversation to people at Springfield that if Jacobson needed evidence of my Dangerousness, he should contact Lucille. I have never met Lucille and had only ever spoken to her once in the late 1980s. I rang her and told her that I had evidence that she and Dafydd were involved with very serious crime. Lucille cackled down the phone and said ‘Crime?? Well you’d better go to the police then’ and hung up on me.

Anyone for a Top Secret Case Conference held by Dr Chris Hunter?

When the Dean of St George’s William Asscher was widowed, elderly and resident in the Vale of Glamorgan on a permanent basis, he acquired a New Lady In His Life, a long-standing family friend, Zylvia Pumfrey. See ‘A Charming Uplifting Sound…’ and previous posts. I presume that Zylvia was a relation of Angela.

I hung around Springfield for days with staff refusing to speak to me on the grounds that ‘You’re going to the Maudsley’. The Top Doc from the Maudsley eventually turned up to ‘assess’ me and explained that he had hoped to have visited me days ago but there had been a suicide on the Maudsley ward where I was due to be transferred and so the ward had been closed for the week.

The Maudsley Top Doc in question was Paul Bowden and he arrived to interview me with ‘his’ charge nurse. Bowden was OK to talk to, he wasn’t a Ruth White and at the end of the interview he told me that he didn’t think that I should be transferred to the Maudsley because I had now been at Springfield for a week, I had made friends with other patients and he thought that was important and positive.

Yet that was not what Paul Bowden told his colleagues at Springfield. There is no copy of any letter or paperwork written by Bowden in my files, but Alice Levinson wrote down what Bowden had said (Alice’s notes read as though she had transcribed a letter or a dictation from Bowden) in her notes about me…

All of these records were withheld from me until 2005, when my lawyer took Keith Thomson, the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust, to the High Court in Cardiff where he was threatened with imprisonment for unlawfully withholding my medical records. However, a great many other people had been given access to my medical records and had even received copies/extracts. 

Bowden declared me to be Dangerous and in possession of a ‘Severe Paranoid Personality Disorder possibly at times Borderline’. I work by ‘splitting and projection’, no treatment had ever made a jot of difference to me – not even my stay in Dafydd’s Therapeutic Community that Dafydd told Jacobson all about – and no treatment would ever work on me. Furthermore, if I was given Therapy I would use that Therapy to cause even more damage to the world. Bowden stated that under no circumstances was I to be sectioned under the Mental Health Act no matter what happened to me or anyone else, although there was of course a danger that I would carry out a murderous attack on a third party at any point.See the source image

Bowden also told the Springfield contingent that St George’s had admitted that my confidence had been breached in so far as when I was in Springfield someone from St George’s had rung my relatives in Somerset without my knowledge ‘to see if they knew what was going on’. Bowden had told the Springfield contingent that if I complained about this breach of confidence I would lose my job. See the source imageI don’t remember complaining about it, so many unacceptable things had happened by then that it seemed to be pointless complaining about anything, but at that time, one of the Bridgy contingent snapped at me that Brown had rung them telling them that I had attempted suicide. I hadn’t but I could barely believe that Brown would ever have rung them without telling me; Brown absolutely assured me that he had not rung them and never would. There was then a row with one of the Bridgy contingent yelling at me that Brown was lying, it was definitely him who had rung.

After I began this blog I was told that the call was something to do with the security services; they’d been bugging us for years and it is alleged that a fake recording/impersonation of Brown was made, assembled from spliced previous recordings. That incident nearly caused a serious rift between Brown and me, which I presume was the rationale, Brown being the one person who always supported me in the face of the Gang and supported me as crap rained down on my head at St George’s. Brown and I also suspect that the call was preparing the ground for my body to be found thus reducing the possibility of questions being asked. Shortly after the call I appeared in the press in south London and north Wales as the star of a news story about a Scientist at St George’s Harassing Top Docs, See the source imagealthough by the time that the story was published I’d been forced out of my job anyway.

Tom still didn’t say a word even with me making headlines.Image result for professor tom burns images

Brown and I suspect that had I been found dead, it would have been against a background beloved of people like Paul Bowden and Bluglass. Mad but clever person who Could Not Be Helped by the Caring Top Docs conducts a Terrible Vendetta against the Caring Top Docs, commits crimes, is sacked from a Good Job that she had bagged as a result of her Cunning Ways and then kills herself…See the source image

Perhaps Sir Robert Francis QC, who for some years now has been the British NHS Patients’ Champ, would like to explain these events in his capacity as the MDU barrister who starred in that particular case against me. See the source imageSee the source imageMy documents demonstrate that the MDU’s own solicitor Ann Ball told the Drs Francis that they did not have the evidence to support their claims and advised them to drop the case against me. The MDU were also well aware that I was demonstrating serious criminality on everyone’s part but mine. I also had a long phone conversation (approx. 30 mins or more) in which I told Ann pretty much everything re the abuse of patients that I had witnessed in north Wales. Ann told me that the Drs Francis knew nothing about any of my ‘allegations’. Sadie wrote Ann a letter in reply telling Ann that they were Experienced Top Docs who knew a Dangerous Nutter when they saw one. See the source imageThe MDU then agreed to go ahead with the case although they had still not been presented with the evidence of my crimes…Image result for professor tom burns images

The latest perusal of my documents shows that Ann Ball was based at the MDU’s Manchester office. Despite being based in Manchester, Ann did manage to make it down to the case in April 1991 at the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand in person.

Paul Bowden’s comments are very typical of psychs who claim to be dealing with Dangerous Manipulative Patients. Bowden was a famous forensic psych who worked on a lot of high profile cases, including that of serial killer Dennis Nilsen. Nilsen died in prison on 12 May 2018. Paul Bowden died in 2014, when the Macur Review was on the way.

I have a mass of documentary evidence demonstrating that Bowden was a liar who knowingly colluded with Top Docs and others whom he knew were guilty of very, very serious offences. Bowden’s motives were to demonise and discredit me and to ensure that I received no healthcare or support whatever although he knew that I would shortly be homeless and jobless. I don’t think that Bowden believed one word of what he was saying. My concern is that Bowden will have done this to other people who unlike me are not in a position to expose this chain of gangsters who had the entire mental health system rigged Image result for professor tom burns imagesto silence witnesses to serious crime perpetrated by their mates.

Now Then. I have looked again and again to ensure that I’ve got this right, but Alice Levinson’s detailed notes written under the sub-heading ‘Dr Bowden’s Opinion’ are dated 8/1/91. I was not admitted to Springfield until 16 Jan 1991. Jacobson did not pay me the domiciliary visit until 15 Jan 1991. I might even have still been in Gwynedd when Alice faithfully recorded Dr Bowden’s opinion on 8 Jan 1991. From what I remember, I was arrested in London by the Burnside and Ted Roach style detectives, detained in Streatham Police Station for what I am sure was an unlawful length of time, driven to north Wales, interviewed by police, appeared before Caernarfon Magistrates Court and then bailed to live at my shared house in Streatham, signing on bail daily at a police station in Tooting, which according to Alice’s notes was Earlsfield Police Station.

Earlsfield Police Station is located in Garrett Lane, which at least when I lived in the area, had the reputation of being the least desirable part of Tooting. I have discussed in previous posts how a Top Doc at St George’s discussed one of the patients ‘from a really scummy family in Garrett Lane’. The Really Scummy Police at Earlsfield Station must have been either as corrupt as buggery or really frightened of the serious organised crime underway in the World Leading Teaching Hospital just down the road.Image result for lavender hill mob images

I signed on bail with the Lavender Hill Mob for just a few days as Alwyn Jones, my solicitor from Bangor, tried to get me a bed in Springfield. I eventually went to the GP’s surgery with which I was registered on 14 Jan 1991 and the GP arranged the home visit from Jacobson. I’ll return to the GP concerned later in this post. Alwyn had tried to secure me a bed in Springfield before my appearance at Caernarfon Magistrates Court, but Springfield stated that there was no bed available.

I was nowhere near Alice until 16 Jan 1991 or Paul Bowden until a number of days after the 16 Jan 1991, particularly with the Maudsley suicide holding everything up. See the source image

So how DID Paul give that opinion in time for Alice to document it on my medical records dated 8/1/91? Even if Alice had meant 18/1/91 – which I think is probably what Alice meant to write, because Alice’s notes re Bowden’s opinion appear after her notes about me on admission and the ‘Plan’ dictated to Alice by Jacobson re my brief presumed time at Springfield before transfer to the Maudsley – Paul had proffered some very firm opinions about me before he had met me and before anyone at Springfield had any chance to meaningfully assess me either.See the source image

Paul Bowden

The 2014 Grauniad obituary for Paul Bowden, written by his friend and colleague of many years, Alec Buchanan, Honorary Prof of Forensic Psychiatry at the Maudsley, was informative but terrifying. Alec’s day job, or at least it was in 2011, is Professor, Division of Law and Psychiatry, Yale University Department of Psychiatry, New Haven, CT, USA. Alec and his colleague Michael A. Norko, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Division of Law and Psychiatry, Yale University Department of Psychiatry, New Haven, CT, USA, wrote this definitive textbook, published July 2011: The Psychiatric Report

The written report is central to the practice of psychiatry in legal settings. It is required of mental health professionals acting as expert witnesses in criminal cases, civil litigation situations, child custody proceedings and risk assessments. This book provides a theoretical background to psychiatric writing for the law and a practical guide to the preparation of the report. The first section addresses practical and ethical concerns, including the conduct of the forensic psychiatric evaluation, conflicts of interest, record keeping and confidentiality. The second section contains practical and detailed advice on preparing various types of report, including reports for use in criminal and civil litigation, civil commitment hearings and child custody proceedings. A final section covers special issues arising during report preparation including the use of psychological tests and the detection of malingering. This is an essential guide for anyone required to write a psychiatric report.

Other offerings from Bowden’s friend and mentor Alec include:By Alec Buchanan - Care of the Mentally Disordered Offender in the Community: 1st (First) EditionPsychiatric Aspects of Justification, Excuse and Mitigation in Anglo-American Criminal Law (Forensic Focus)Care of the Mentally Disordered Offender in the CommunityCompliance With Treatment In Schizophrenia (Maudsley Series Book 37)

Readers can while away a happy hour or so looking up other contributions to the World Of Psychiatry made by Alec and his colleagues and co-authors, who all learnt at the knee of Experts and Shared Best Practice. Paul Bowden

On what date did you assess that patient did you say Paul? Was that before or after the Suicide of your other patient? Or was it before the patient who was Assessed by you had been assessed by ANYONE other than the personal friends of a man whom the referring psychiatrist admits is sexually abusing his patients or indeed the abusing psychiatrist himself?See the source image

See previous posts for details of Buchanan’s career and others in his and Bowden’s circle…

Here’s Alec’s memories (presumably not false memories or repressed ones!) of Paul the Clairvoyant:

The career of my friend and colleague Paul Bowden, a forensic psychiatrist at the Bethlem Royal and Maudsley hospitals in London, was remarkable for its breadth and quality. The criminal courts made extensive use of his expertise, often in high-profile trials. His experience, interests and personality helped make Paul, who has died aged 73, an effective teacher who shaped the skills and outlook of many of the senior figures within British forensic psychiatry. He was born in the Potteries, in Stoke-on-Trent. His father, Sidney, was the manager of a chemical works, his mother, Winifred (nee Sammons) a teacher. At St Joseph’s college in Stoke, Paul led the school orchestra; music, in most of its forms, remained important to him throughout his life. In 1965 he graduated in medicine from Guy’s hospital, and then trained in psychiatry at the Maudsley. He took up his first consultant post in 1977 at St George’s hospital, London, before moving back to the Bethlem Royal and Maudsley where he was to work until his retirement in 1999. Paul’s clinical responsibilities included an out-patient clinic, in-patient wards, adolescent offenders at Stamford Lodge children’s home and adults at Brixton prison. He trained doctors of all grades most of whom, like me, were learning the care of mentally disordered offenders. He was a perceptive teacher who asked the right questions and encouraged us to learn while making our own decisions. As well as being clinically extremely astute, Paul was funny and could be waspish. He made sure he was there during difficult moments, when people had to hear things they did not want to hear, or told to do things they did not want to do. With Robert Bluglass, he edited the UK’s first major text on his subject, Principles and Practice of Forensic Psychiatry (1990). Paul wrote six of the 153 chapters himself. The Journal of Forensic Psychiatry, which he founded, appeared in the same year; he ran the journal pretty much singlehandedly before I became editor in 1996. When I was his assistant, Paul would periodically put his head round the door and tell me I was doing nothing, but more colourfully. This was not true, irritated me and probably made me try harder. He was a stimulating and provocative source of original ideas.

Paul spent his retirement with Judith, his second wife, collecting books – modern first editions mostly – art and Staffordshire china. Judith, whom he married in 1997, survives him; as do the three children, Elizabeth, Thomas and Emily, of his first marriage, to Ann, which ended in divorce; and four grandchildren.See the source image

 

Briefly: Bowden spent his entire life in the bosom of the Gang and their mates. Stoke-on-Trent was on the patch of the big Staffs ring; all local Councillors and politicians concealed that ring, the highest profile MP doing that being Jack Ashley, the dad of Jackie Ashley the political journo who is married to Andrew Marr. Another colluder is Baroness Llinos Golding, who was the Labour MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffs, July 1986-May 2001. The Baroness is qualified as a radiographer, worked in the NHS and is currently the Patron of the Society of Radiographers. The serious problems in the NHS in Staffs are a direct result of the ring in the region; Staffs NHS was in terrible trouble as long ago as when John Major was PM, but discussion of it in Parliament was squashed and calls for investigations went unheeded. Official portrait of Baroness Golding crop 2.jpg The Baroness inherited the seat from her husband John Golding, who was elected as the Labour MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme in 1969. John was educated at Chester City Grammar School, Keele University and the LSE. After some time working in the Civil Service John Golding took up a research job with the Post Office Engineering Union. Golding served in the Govts of Harold Wilson and Jim Callaghan, as PPS to Eric Varley as Minister of Technology, a Labour Whip in opposition, and Minister for Employment. Eric Varley, along with his close friend – they were closer than anyone realised – Gerald Kaufperson, kept the lid on the Westminster Paedophile Ring/Gwynne/Dafydd. John Golding claimed to hate Wedgie Benn, but Eric Varley accepted a job as Chairman of Coalite plc in 1983 in order to resign his Chesterfield (Derbyshire seat) to make way for Wedgie Benn. Wedgie Benn had lost his Bristol seat and was in need of a safe Labour seat but he was needed in Derbyshire because the Gang were in pursuit of Brown and me by then. The link – or one of the links – is Penelope Piercy, daughter of Lord Gnome, my distant relative by marriage. Penelope was a Civil Service Mandarin who was Wedgie Benn’s right hand woman when Wedgie Benn was Minister of Technology in 1968. Penelope bagged a CBE in the same year. Lord Gnome was definitely colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and I suspect that he may have been rather more than colluding with it… Many female members of Lord Gnome’s family went to St Paul’s School for Girls and then Oxford, usually Somerville.

John Golding was a key figure in opposing the entryist Militant group, and especially in mobilising moderate trades union leaders to exercise their block votes to achieve this end. After he died, his writings were published under the title Hammer of the Left: My Part in Defeating the Labour Left by John Golding and Paul Farrelly, who succeeded Baroness Llinos as the MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme. In 1986 John Golding left Parliament to take up the post of General Secretary of the National Communications Union. He held this post until 1988. Golding had served as a member of the Council of the TUC. John Golding died on 20 Jan 1999. John Golding won the seat when his predecessor Stephen Swingler died unexpectedly in office on 15 Feb 1969. Swingler was one of Richard Crossman’s circle and Crossman’s diaries record the shock of Swingler’s sudden death. Swingler served in the DHSS as a Minister of State for Social Services under Crossman when the entire team were in cahoots with Gwynne and Dafydd. Swingler’s death meant that Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate David Ennals took over his Ministerial job.

Swingler was the son of Rev. H. Swingler, and was educated at Stowe and New College, Oxford, where he graduated in 1936. Like so many New College grads – including Crossman and Trumpers’ husband Barker – Swingler was recruited by the security services at Oxford. Before entering politics Swingler was a lecturer for the WEA. In the Labour landslide at the 1945 General Election, Swingler was elected as MP for the previously Conservative-held seat of Stafford. When the constituency was abolished at the 1950 General Election, Swingler contested the new Stafford and Stone seat, but was defeated by Hugh Fraser. At the 1951 General Election Swingler was returned as MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme. Hugh Fraser was Lady Antonia’s first husband, the one whom she dumped for Swearing Harold Pinter. Lady Antonia was the daughter of Lord Longford, most of who’s extended family were concealing Gwynne, Dafydd et al, that’s what the prison visiting and Christian forgiveness was all about. Lady Antonia was also a good mate of Bertrand Russell’s son, Earl Conrad Russell. Lady Antonia lives near Bodger’s mate Cathy Wilson, who was supposed to be supervising my PhD at St George’s. Cathy will know Lady Antonia; Cathy wasn’t just part of High Fuckwitted Society, she considered herself literary, believed that she was a leftie, was loaded and a terrible snob. She won’t have been able to resist Lady Antonia’s company.

Swingler played an interesting but minor part in the serial killer Top Doc John Bodkin Adams affair. On 8 November 1956, the Attorney-General Reginald Manningham-Buller handed the Scotland Yard report into Adams’ activities to Dr McRae, Secretary of the BMA. The prosecution’s most valuable document was then copied and passed to Adams’ defence Counsel. After a tip-off from a Daily Mail journalist, on 28 November Swingler (in conjunction with MP Hugh Delargy) addressed a question to the Attorney-General to be answered in the Commons on 3 December regarding Manningham-Buller’s recent contacts with the GMC. Manningham-Buller was absent on the day in question but gave a written reply stating he had “had no communications with the General Medical Council within the last six months.” M-B avoided referring to the BMA directly (despite it being named in Delargy’s question) and therefore avoided lying, though it could be argued, deliberately misled the House.

Adams was eventually acquitted of the murder of Edith Alice Morrell but was suspected by Home Office pathologist Francis Camps of killing 163 patients. Harriet Harman’s dad Harley Street Top Doc John B. Harman – who knew Gwynne and Dafydd and was the brother of Lord Longford’s wife Elizabeth – gave evidence as an Expert in defence of Adams, although Harman had no personal experience of the area in which he gave evidence. Harman was an old boy of Oundle School… When Harman retired in 1972, he became the President of the MDU. Harman was the son of two Harley Street Top Docs himself.

Harman was in the same class at Oundle as Sir Cyril Clarke, the Liverpool Medical School Top Doc who knew Dafydd. In his spare time, Clarke studied moth genetics and like all Top Docs, Clarke was such a polymathic genius that he Broke New Ground with those moth genetics. Liverpool University have proudly collected Clarke’s papers but have not explained why there are no records at all of Clarke’s data or accounts of the experimental work that led to his Breakthroughs. Clarke worked with others in the field who were exposed as lying about their research results in a big way; some of the lies have become famous in zoology as research fraud and other researchers’ work is now accepted as sounder than that of Clarke’s colleagues. Cyril Clarke knew Gavin Gatehouse, the UCNW zoologist who was my friend Anne’s PhD supervisor when she was killed by the Gang in April 1986. Anne became Gavin’s PhD student after Gavin spontaneously offered her the PhD studentship on noctuid moths; Anne had not applied for the studentship or even asked Gavin if she could complete a PhD with him. I have been told that this was a ruse to keep Anne in Bangor while the Gang worked out what to do with my friends and I, and that Cyril Clarke was something to do with the PhD studentship that Gavin bagged from NERC. See ‘A Trail Of Blood’.

Stephen Swingler was married in 1936 to Anne (née Lily), daughter of John Matthews, of Mitcham, formerly of Newcastle upon Tyne. Mitcham is in the neighbouring Borough to Wandsworth, near to St George’s and Springfield. The Swinglers had four children: Robin, Nicholas, Clare and Oliver. Anne Swingler worked in the Labour Research Department and later volunteered for Shelter Housing Aid. Both of those organisations were of Richard Crossman’s/Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law’s and their friends’ circle…

Baroness Llinos was a safe pair of hands for the Newcastle-under-Lyme seat. Not only was she the wife of John Golding, but her dad was The Right Honourable Onesimus Edwards (5 April 1897-3 May 1968), aka Ness Edwards. Ness Edwards was born in Abertillery, Monmouthshire. He started work at the Penybont colliery on 5 April 1910, his 13th birthday. By the age of 17 Ness was working at the Arriel Griffin colliery filling the role of Chairman of the local miners lodge. A trade unionist, Ness was imprisoned in 1917 as a conscientious objector. Ness was elected  as MP for Caerphilly at a by-election in 1939 and remained in the seat until his death in 1968. At the beginning of World War II Edwards was instrumental in helping Czech miners escape the Sudetenland. An associate of Aneurin Bevan and Jim Griffiths, Edwards was Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour and National Service, 1945-50 and Postmaster General, 1950-51. In 1925 Ness Edwards married Elina Victoria Williams, one of six children of Richard Williams, a county court bailiff, and his wife Anne, of Bridgend. Ness Edwards died at Caerphilly Miners’ Hospital on 3 May 1968, aged 71. 

Ness’s mates Nye and Jim Griffiths were instrumental in not just protecting Dafydd and Gwynne but positively encouraging them… Griffiths, the MP for Llanelli, was the first Secretary of State at the Welsh Office and seeded the rot there…

The MPs for Stafford have also long since kept schtum about the organised abuse in Staffordshire, including Tory Bill Cash. See previous posts…

The ring in Staffs erupted in the form of the Staffs Pindown Scandal in the late 1980s, the extent of which was concealed by the Co-Chairs of the subsequent Public Inquiry, Allan Levy QC and Barbara Kahan. Babs was a social worker who was married to Oxford child psychiatrist Vladimir Kahan and they had both colluded with organised abuse. Babs had been the manager of paedophile social worker Louis Minster who became Director of Social Services for Richmond-upon-Thames. The ring at Richmond run by Minster and his mates was concealed by, among others, Keith Vaz, when he was the Borough’s solicitor and Baroness Jenny Tonge. Tonge is a Top Doc, the daughter of two Staffordshire schoolteachers. Tonge’s career in medicine as a mature Doc substantially concerned ‘family planning’ and health services in Ealing. Jenny Tonge was married to another Top Doc, Keith Tonge, a consultant neuroradiologist at Tommy’s. One of the Tonges’ adult children died as a result of ‘accidental electrocution’ in 2004. Babs Kahan was then appointed as children’s social work adviser to Keith Joseph, when Joseph was Grocer Heath’s Secretary of State for the DHSS. Joseph was the MP for a Leeds constituency and colluded with Gwynne et al from Joseph’s early days in Gov’t under Macmillan. Joseph was part of the Tory Party scrapping and dealing that resulted in Thatch becoming Leader. When Joseph was taking advice from Kahan, Thatch was Education Secretary, having lunch at the Clarence and both Thatch and Tom King were ignoring the terrible problems in the Bridgwater schools, as well as those in the schools in north Wales and other regions where branches of the Gang were at work…

Babs was a big name in social work for years after the Heath Gov’t and worked at the NCB (National Children’s Bureau) with the paedophile social work academic Peter Righton, who bagged a job at Keele University. Keele is in Staffs and had quite a problem with staff and students who were Gang accomplices. Michael Mansfield is a Keele graduate; Mansfield lived in Wandsworth when I lived just down the road.

Bowden was a Guy’s graduate, as were a whole cluster of Gang members/supporters. Prof Robert Owen was an orthopaedic surgeon, a Guy’s man and by the time that I encountered Bowden, Owen had concealed the Gang’s crimes by utilising Bluglass to Chair the July 1989 ‘investigation’ into my complaint about the Gang. Bluglass is a St Andrew’s grad but after working in Scotland, by the early 1970s Bluglass was the Next Big Thing in Psychiatry at Birmingham University. His mentor at Birmingham was Bill Trethowan, into who’s shoes Bluglass stepped. Trethowan was a Guy’s graduate, as was his dad and his mum. The Trethowans ran the place. Trethowan’s dad was an orthopaedic surgeon at Guy’s who almost certainly taught/trained Robert Owen.

Sister Hutt’s dad Michael Hutt was a Tommy’s graduate but in later life held a Chair of Pathology at Guy’s. Uncle Harry held a Chair at Guy’s.

Bill Trethowan was an old boy of Oundle School, as was Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and a whole cluster of those who were Of The Gang, including Harold Wilson’s Minister of Health Sir Kenneth Robinson. Robinson’s dad was a Top Doc and his mum was an Angel. Sir Peter Scott, who served as Chancellor of Birmingham University when Trethowan/Bluglass were running things in the Dept of Psych there, was an old Oundle boy, as was David Lewis Davies, the Dean of the Maudsley when Dafydd, Bowden and many others Trained at the Maudsley.

It was a nice arrangement at Birmingham, because after Tony Francis relocated from Manchester to north Wales, his old boss/mentor from Manchester Ian Brockington relocated to Birmingham to take up a Chair alongside Bluglass! Brockington was in place just before Bluglass ‘investigated’ my complaint about the Gang!

Bowden Trained at the Maudsley just after Dafydd had Trained there. Bowden Trained at the Maudsley when Dafydd’s old boss and mentor Dr Bob Hobson was still in full swing at the Maudsley, running a huge sex abuse ring under the umbrella of community psychiatry/therapy. Robin Jacobson made a point of letting everyone know before they met me that Dafydd had Trained with Bob Hobson at the Maudsley in those happy days! See the source image

So Paul Bowden had heard the alarm blasting away very loudly. I don’t know if Bowden’s ward really had to close because of a suicide thus preventing him from arriving at Springfield to Assess me when he initially agreed, but if a convenient suicide had not occurred, this lot would have been capable of murdering a patient to ensure that they had a suicide on que.

Nita Mitchell-Heggs, the whistleblower shooter at St George’s, Trained at the Maudsley as well. So did most of the psychs who worked at St George’s/Springfield and dear departed Adrianne Reveley who was hired by the Welsh Gov’t to provide an Independent Opinion when I began litigation against the NHS some years ago. Adrianne knew many who’s names littered my medical records, she’d worked with friends of Dafydd and Tony Francis and her dad was a Top Doc who knew Gwynne’s circle. Adrianne’s dad was a Top Doc in er Staffordshire. Adrianne’s husband was a psychiatrist in Leicester. Adrianne’s former junior doc was Ben Goldacre who exposes bad science and has doubled up as a Gov’t adviser…See the source image

In 1977, when Paul Bowden took up his first consultant post at St George’s, St George’s and Springfield had already been working together in the trafficking and Class A dealing/distribution business for nearly 10 years, the arrangement having been forged by St George’s psychiatrist Peter Brett Storey in the late 1960s. St George’s was located in Knightsbridge until the early 1980s, but the Gang went into business proper with Wandsworth Borough Council, on who’s turf Springfield was, in the late 1960s, Storey establishing the link needed. St George’s already had a well-established reputation for protecting very posh criminals, as exemplified by their role in the 1960s re Jeremy Thorpe and Norman Scott. Then they hit the jackpot with Lord Lucan in 1974. Lord Lucan will have paid someone at St George’s a great deal of money to declare Lady Lucan Mad and In Need Of Sedation when she turned up with head wounds while a dead nanny lay in the basement See the source imageand Lord L scarpered.

In 1977 Bowden joined a team of psychiatrists at St George’s who were already quite mad and experienced criminals (see ‘Meet The Gwerin!’). Two psychiatrists who worked with Bowden at St George’s were Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Sex Therapist Jim Watson and his wife Sex Therapist Christine. Jim and Christine subsequently moved on to Guy’s where they established a Sex Therapy clinic. Jim and Christine taught Sex Therapy as well as practised it. One could be reassured that Jim was a Real Sex Therapist because he wore a bow tie: See the source image

By 1977, the other Depts at St George’s were coming along nicely, as well as Psychiatry. Ollie Brooke had his feet under the table in the Dept of Paediatrics and Bodger had arrived – or his arrival was imminent – in the Dept of Obs and Gynae…

Upon hitting the big time at St George’s, Bowden offered his services to Stamford Remand Home in London. Stamford Remand Home was the subject of constant allegations that the boys within were being seriously sexually and physically abused, even in an era when such matters were not discussed as frequently as they are now. Hansard records discussions in the House re events at Stamford Remand Home that caused a national scandal in the earlier years of the 1960s. The complaints continued to pour out of Stamford Remand Home as the years passed. A stint at Stamford Remand Home was the key to professional success for staff; not only did Bowden make it big, but Peter Clarke, the first Children’s Commissioner for Wales – an Office that was established on the Recommendation of Ronald Waterhouse to ensure That It Never Happened Again (although as Waterhouse emphasised, not much did happen) – began his social work career at Stamford Remand Home! Peter Clarke came from Llandudno, as did Gwynne. It’s the Sea Breeze. See the source image

Stamford Remand Home was located not a million miles away from the old BBC TV Centre at Shepherd’s Bush.See the source imageSee the source image

The psych system in which Bowden had risen to the very top was primarily run to assist criminality in high places, especially the Westminster Paedophile Ring. The Maudsley led the fray in terms of psychiatry because it had built a reputation as the leading training institution for psychiatrists. Whilst it was true that most of them passed through the Maudsley, the discipline was in such a sorry state that the reputation of the Maudsley was pure myth, there was no expertise, just a great deal of malpractice and criminals sticking together like glue.

Forensic psychiatrists were as much the business of the Home Office as they were the DHSS. Both Gov’t Depts were as rotten as psychiatry and the Top Docs knew that no-one at the Home Office was ever going to question them let alone rein them in. They did whatever they wanted but then as the business of the Home Office was also concealing or indeed perpetrating state-sanctioned crime, we should not be surprised that the Home Office enjoyed such a good relationship with a rotten medical profession, in particular the psychiatrists and pathologists.

If it is true that Leon Brittan, Home Secretary, June 1983-Sept 1985, was a child abuser himself, that epitomises the scale of the problem. However even if the allegations about Leon are untrue, he and every other Home Secretary undoubtedly concealed very grave crimes on the part of the Gang in a way that cannot be excused. For everyone like Norman Scott or in a lesser way me, who’s cases became known to the public, there were many more people who spent their entire lives languishing in some hell-hole like Denbigh or Broadmoor who were absolutely not the people that these state-bankrolled crooks like Bowden and BluglassSee the source image declared them to be. Dangerous people do exist, including dangerous people in the psychiatric system, but the judgements of Bowden et al could not be relied upon in any way. Furthermore, Once They Have Spoken, the target will not be able to persuade any Top Doc to disagree with them on an official basis, even if, a la my experience with Tom Burns, they hold a private conversation with the target in which they coolly admit that they know what the target is alleging is indeed true. It will be a case of the Price Is Right but in addition Tom et al don’t want to die and they don’t want their families to die and they know that is the bottom line.

What can be done if M See the source imageand C See the source image on Brenda’s Secret Service are personal friends with Gang members or for whatever reason will not take action against them?

After the party games with Paul Bowden, Jacobson Referred me to Prof Nigel Eastman, Image result for professor nigel eastman imagesbarrister, Top Doc and friend of St Helena’s. Or at least I encountered Eastman after I encountered Bowden. So many lies were told by so many people, I’m not sure of the exact sequence of events. Certainly Eastman received a letter from Jacobson about me either very soon after Jacobson arrived at my house on 15 Jan 1991 or it may have even been drafted before… They seemed very certain that I was not going to receive any support no matter what happened and everyone involved was happy to accuse me of being paranoid/dangerous/deluded while admitting in writing that Dafydd had described me as being ‘attractive and seductive’ and that Dafydd and, they suspected Tony Francis as well, were having sex with patients…

Nigel Eastman Image result for professor nigel eastman imageshad been told by Jacobson in a letter dated 16 Jan 1991 that Bluglass had declared me to be ‘a criminal psychopath who would end in special hospital’. Jacobson had written to Bluglass on 16 Jan 1991, but they also seemed to have had a phone conversation as well. Again I’m wondering whether all these spectacular quotes and opinions were ones that they’d prepared earlier, See the source imagebecause as far as I can see, Jacobson wasn’t faxing letters, so how could a letter to Bluglass from Jacobson dated 16 Jan 1991, result in Bluglass providing information and florid comments in time for Jacobson to include them in his letter to Eastman, also on 16 Jan 1991?  I didn’t know about these matters until I obtained my records. Furthermore Bluglass had previously told Dafydd that I would ‘end in ward for the criminally insane’, which Dafydd thought was ‘chilling’.See the source image

Although Nigel Eastman was, like Paul Bowden, one of the Biggus Dickuses who’s Opinion was sought re me because poor old Jacobson needed the advice of Someone Senior With Expertise, See the source imagethere does not seem to be a copy anywhere in my files of anything written by Eastman about me, beyond a copy of the letter from his Dept inviting me to the one and only appointment that I had with him.

I have copies of notes compiled by Alice Levinson stating that I will be discharged from Springfield Hospital with no further contact except for a ‘double appointment’ with Jacobson (a double appointment being the sum total of 30 mins) that Alice wrote very soon after Bowden met with me. Alice was a registrar but was clearly acting on instructions from someone else. Although the decision had been made to discharge me and then refer me ‘to Forensics for containment’ no less (Forensics being Nigel Eastman, the appointment with him taking place after I had been discharged with no job, nowhere to live etc), no-one told me that for a number of days, and a series of events were constructed by Springfield Hospital which seemed to have been designed to provoke me into signing myself out or providing Springfield with an excuse to throw me out.See the source image

One such occasion was the theft of my shoes by another patient, a seriously crazy elderly West Indian bag lady, who was brought in by the police as being in need of care and safety, who was left in a day room by herself overnight and utterly ignored by the staff. She disappeared of her own accord early the next morning and my shoes went with her. I didn’t complain about theft per se because I took the view that the Angels’ ‘care’ of that bag lady was so bad that theft was neither here nor there. I did press the hospital to provide me with another pair of shoes, as they were the only shoes that I had. There was much arse-iness and surliness and after a few hours I was grudgingly given a small credit note with which to buy the cheapest pair of shoes in the notorious Springfield shop, selling ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’ clothes at which the patients marvelled and asked ‘Are such clothes still being made and if so who is making them and WHY??’

I found documentation in my files a few days ago relating to that incident; I note that I ‘alleged’ that my shoes had been stolen. It was stressed at the time that Springfield Took No Responsibility, I left those shoes in the day room when those shoes should have been with me, being My Responsibility. So a pair of not exactly Jimmy Choos but OK shoes disappeared into thin air to be replaced by Institutional ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest Shoes’. When I arrived back at my place I found a letter from St George’s effectively sacking me. I had to settle up re rent, bills etc so there was not going to be any spare cash to buy some shoes good enough for the interviews that I was going to need to attend. Brown understands such games on the part of Those Who Help and thus I didn’t spend too long in Institutional Shoes…

Another event that nearly resulted in me leaving Springfield before I knew that there had obviously been no intention at all to ever provide meaningful help or support was The Time That I Attacked Another Patient. See the source imageSee the source imageNo of course I didn’t, she (mildly) physically attacked me and received a mouthful from me. That was my Attack. This patient’s name is written on my documents but I’m not repeating it here, she wasn’t served any better by Springfield than the rest of us were. She was a young Asian woman who came from a middle class family locally who were, it was said, friendly with Top Docs in St George’s. She was unhappy and distressed about something but she was the sort of patient who caused Angels to mutter angrily ‘She’s not ill, she shouldn’t be here, she’s faking it’. Unlike any other Malingerer, this young woman was given the time of day because her family knew the Top Docs and she had begin to do things in her community that were causing much embarrassment, such as stripping off, asking passers-by to shag her etc. She was certainly risking it doing that in Springfield…

As well as stripping off and hurling obscenities at the other patients, she also enjoyed pulling bed covers off of people and generally pissing them off. Top Docs like to pretend that all psych patients behave like this See the source image but they don’t, it is relatively unusual.

After two or three other patients had discharged themselves as a result of this patient, the Angels rearranged the ward to ensure that her bed was next to mine… When I was accused by Ruth White of Attacking this girl, I explained what had happened and mentioned that it was unrealistic to expect all to go smoothly if a person behaving thus was next to me constantly yelling obscenities, stripping off, pulling my covers off etc. According to my medical notes Ruth White explained to me that psychiatric wards can be noisy and disturbing places. See the source imageWhat happened in reality was that Ruth White et al maintained that I had carried out a Violent Assault and that as I was potentially So Dangerous, if there was one more Incident with this patient I would be discharged immediately. Other patients were told by the Ward Manager that I was Dangerous. See the source imageThey defended me and said no, it isn’t Sally who is attacking people. The Ward Manager then shouted at everyone that he wasn’t going to listen to this and walked out of the meeting that had been called by the patients to discuss the chaos prevailing.

So far, I have found only the initials of the Angels who manned that ward on my documentation, with the exception of one Angel’s signature, an S Walton. Other Angels just signed records with an indecipherable squiggle or initials. I will keep looking, because all Angels on that ward and in particular the two ward managers – a foul mouthed Ozzie called Stephanie and her mate, an older South Asian man who’s name we were only given in passing and which I can’t remember – were witness to the crime that pervaded that hospital. Which will be why they didn’t sign the records properly… The Top Docs were barely ever actually on the wards, in the event of death and an inquest, police investigation, Public Inquiry etc, it is Angels who are summoned to provide Evidence of the Patient’s Mental State, whether they had complained about anything etc. See the source imageI have read accounts of Coroners, judges etc simply accepting a hospital’s statement that signatures are illegible and they just can’t ascertain who was on duty at that particular time.See the source image

The names of Springfield staff on my documents that are clear include Mrs Dee McEvoy, Assistant Manager, Control Services. Mrs Dee handled the request for my replacement shoes.

As for the Official Paperwork used by Springfield, I note that the Standard Documentation headed with ‘Springfield Hospital’, included a tick box re ‘Mental Category’ with the following categories: ‘Mentally Ill’, ‘Psychopath’, ‘Subnormal’, ‘Severely Subnormal’. This was in Jan 1991. The Clinical Director of Springfield Hospital was Rachel Perkins, who ‘retired’ on the grounds of ill-health after a series of rapes and murders at Springfield, then constructed herself as Service Users’ Champ, bagged a seat on the St George’s NHS Trust Board as the Service Users’ Rep and subsequently joined the EHRC as the Disability Commissioner. In my case none of the boxes had been ticked by any Angel or Top Doc.

Rachel: Mentally Ill, Psychopath, Subnormal or Severely Subnormal? 

After leaving Springfield, I attended the appointment with Nigel Eastman Image result for professor nigel eastman imagesand his colleague Dr Bartlett, a female Top Doc, on 20 Feb 1991. Peter Morrison was knighted in Feb 1991 and my friend was forced out of her job at the Royal Television Society in Feb/March 1991…

I have never been able to find out who Dr Bartlett was. Eastman told me to go back to north Wales because Dafydd knew me and was my doctor… See the source imageAlthough I was alleged to have been plotting to murder Dafydd et al in cold blood, they were all terrified of me in north Wales and I had ‘brought the psychiatric service in north Wales to its knees’. See the source imageAnd one unidentified Top Doc in north Wales was threatening to resign because of me.See the source image

Eastman qualified as a Top Doc from Bristol University in 1979; I think that he qualified as a barrister before reading medicine. Eastman is of Gray’s Inn a la William Mars-Jones and Lord Elwyn-Jones – two of the biggest friends of the Gang – and St Helena and Michael Mansfield.

So the essential Springfield documentation relating to the most guilty is either missing or unsigned. See the source imageAs two Attorney Generals – Michael Havers and Paddy Mayhew – a number of High Court judges and goodness knows how many Cabinet Ministers, as well as Thatch, Major and a few Lord Chancellors were on board and of course Carlo, we cannot be surprised that there is no paper trail leading to the doors of the most guilty. Because as any fule kno, Fings Break.

The various plants really were lacking weren’t they. Fings Broke for my friends constantly and Dafydd et al were never put out of action. They are gradually dying of old age now but that’s because the plants were so bloody hopeless. An awful lot of Fings Broke while the plants did sod all worrying that Fings Might Break.

The plants might as well have not been there. I can’t think of much that they saved me from. Obviously someone threw a spanner in the works re the lobotomy plan, but had the plants dealt with Gwynne and Dafydd when they should have, no-one would have dared even try the lobotomy plan.

PLANTS! Gwynne shouldn’t have been there! And if you plants were being ignored by your bosses in Gov’t, the sodding Gov’t shouldn’t have been there. Now do me a favour and deal with these people.

I have discussed in previous posts how, because I was being refused all help by Springfield, I visited the GPs surgery  in Trevelyan Road, Tooting with which I was registered, only to be met with a totally offensive GP whom I had not met before. Bile was heaped upon me and she snapped that she would certainly not be treating me and would Discuss Me With Springfield. I was so fed up by now that I revisited her on 26 Feb 1991, removed the documents from her desk from which this insulting cow was gaining her Insights about me and walked out of the surgery with them. The cow pursued me down the road, all friendliness, begging me to bring the documents back. I returned to Wales permanently days later, taking the documents with me and I hid them. Little wonder there was a panic, the documents were written by Robin Jacobson and he had admitted in writing that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and he suspected that Tony Francis was as well.See the source image Although despite the written admissions re Dafydd, the conclusion of Springfield was that I had ‘Personality Problems’ and suffered from ‘Paranoia’. It’s Official, signed by a ‘JR’. (Yet another diagnosis by an unknown Springfield hand added after I left was Bipolar Disorder.) That was how I knew just a little of how serious the conspiracy was years before I obtained my records in 2005…

The lies and conspiracy simply escalated back in north Wales after 26 Feb 1991, that lot just could not meet patients in an open and transparent way, their criminality was far too serious.

Previous posts have discussed two GPs at Trevelyan Road, Penny Smith and James Le Fanu. Le Fanu is famous, he’s a media doc and for years Le Fanu was the Torygraph’s medical correspondent. See the source imagePenny Smith is still practicing but I note that Le Fanu has recently voluntarily relinquished his licence to practice. Why Us? By James Le FanuPenny Smith had a very nice manner, she wasn’t the appalling cow with whom I was in dispute, but Penny did know that her colleagues were serious criminals and that patients were in danger. My recent perusal of documents show that Penny wrote to Tom Burns on 14 Jan 1991; that was almost certainly because I visited her when I returned from north Wales and told her that I was feeling rough. Jacobson arrived for the home visit the next day. Penny did the correct things for a GP with a distressed patient, but she knew that she was working with a broken system completely infiltrated with serious crime. Image result for professor tom burns imagesWhy Us? By James Le Fanu As with GPs in north Wales, Penny Smith knew that no patients were being helped no matter how many referrals were made.

I have found the name of the other partner in the practice at Trevelyan Road, whom I did meet once but I had forgotten his name; it was E. Tod. As well as being the most senior partner in the practice, Tod also held a senior academic post at the Dept of General Practice at St George’s. Tod seems to no longer have a licence to practice.See the source imageWhy Us? By James Le Fanu

Here’s a few gems from my 1991 documents, re the adventures when I returned to Gwynedd after my ‘assessment’ by Eastman and Bartlett, jobless and with no income; no-one had told me about sickness benefits etc. I found out about sickness benefits when F told me, having met F on the Bethesda to Bangor bus and joined the group of Empowered Service Users who used to go to his house in Bethesda for coffee and Survival Advice.

My friendship with F was noted on my medical notes by Paul Nickson, the Bethesda GP, on 5/8/91, alongside the comment that I was ‘still making accusations of Dr D.A. Jones raping patients’. On 20/9/91, Nickson documented on my notes that he had telephoned Alwyn, my solicitor and Alwyn ‘will phone Dr Mawson on 23/9/91’.

Dr David Mawson was the consultant psych whom Alwyn had contacted when I returned from London to Gwynedd and no mental health ‘professional’ in any part of north Wales would agree to have contact with me because I was just so Dangerous. Dr Mawson, I was told, was based in Yorkshire. He had actually just left his job at Ashworth, with Chris Hunter et al… Mawson had resigned after the dreadful media headlines resulting from the first Inquiry into Ashworth, Chaired by Louis Blom-Cooper QC, who recommended that Ashworth be closed in the wake of the murders, rapes and beatings there. Blom-Cooper had known about that for years; in his role as Chairman of the Mental Health Act Commission, St Louis had ignored all complaints about Ashworth and of course about Dafydd, who was pulling the strings at Ashworth.

When I did eventually meet Dr Mawson, he was very pleasant and entertaining. He really was good fun and easy to talk to. He discussed with me at length the serious problems at Ashworth and attributed them entirely to the POA. The POA were bloody dreadful, but David Mawson never mentioned to me that Dafydd et al ran Ashworth… Dr Mawson disappeared off of the planet a few years after I met him; he moved to Broadmoor not long after I encountered him, starred on a TV show, was appointed to the Parole Board and was subsequently removed from the Medical Register and that was it…

Years later when I worked as a sociologist at Bangor University, I found that two of my colleagues, Catherine Robinson and John Bailey, being psychologists who trained at UCNW, knew Dr Mawson. John Bailey, a clinical psychologist, had worked with Mawson at er Ashworth. John told me that he didn’t know why Mawson disappeared but he was known to have developed an alcohol problem and severe depression.

See previous posts for Dr Mawson details…

David Mawson was of course fully on board with the Gang but had a much nicer manner. Mawson declared me to have Schizophrenia and to be in need of long-term anti-psychotics, although he flagged up that I was a clever, pleasant, likeable young lady. Not a word about Danger or Violence, but I have now realised that the Cunning Plan was to not make a total idiot of himself as his colleagues had, get me on board with a ‘This has all been a terrible cock-up but now it’ll be sorted’ line, hand me back over to the Gang, while Mawson left the scene and then the Gang would do their worst after a polite interval.

I knew that Mawson must have known about Dafydd and Gwynne, but I keep forgetting that the entire network had been warned that I had possession of those incriminating documents that I took from Trevelyan Road Surgery and they really had to work at this one…

My interest now is not in Mawson’s deceit or his role in the Cunning Plan but why the Gang shafted him. He was certainly no worse than the rest of them. Info has been sent my way telling me that the involvement of the Independent Dr Mawson was just another Cunning Plan worked out on a collective basis because of the panic ensuing after I had gained those few highly incriminating documents from Trevelyan Road, wasn’t talking about them to anyone and had secreted them… Brown and I were under surveillance so the security services knew that those documents were in my house and that Brown knew the contents.

I am told that Tiny Rowland was the ultimate mover and shaker behind events because his mega-empire was bound up with the Top Docs’ trafficking ring. Tiny owned shrinks. As well as a few other people.See the source image

Previous posts have discussed Tiny’s biography and activities in some detail, as well as those of his son Toby and Toby’s wife Plum Sykes, whom Toby married in 2005. Just to briefly recap, Toby is a ‘businessman’. Toby didn’t establish his first business until 1999, the year after his dad died. Toby’s business activities seem to be primarily online gambling, unless he has diversified… But it was online gambling – including the site king.com – that made Toby well-known.

There is at present much trauma re the cheap n cheerful explosion in gambling now that people can just take advantage of businesses of the sort run by Toby, enabling less advantaged people to gamble themselves into the gutter, as opposed to the Good Old Days when one had to be Lord Lucan, Sir Jams Goldsmith, John Aspinall or another of the Mayfair Set and have enough dosh to spend all night in Gentlemen’s Clubs frittering away the family fortune. See the source imageEven George Carman QC found that gaming left him in dire financial difficulties which is why the Barrister to the Westminster Paedophile Ring didn’t have quite the fortune that he would have had he not spent so much time blind drunk or at the tables.

Toby’s wife Victoria “Plum” Sykes (born 4 December 1969) is a fashion journalist, novelist and socialite. Victoria Sykes was born in London, one of six children including a twin sister, Lucy, and grew up in Sevenoaks, Kent. Among her friends at Ide Hill Church of England Primary School was Rowan Pelling, who became the Editor (or “editrice”) of the Erotic Review. From there Plum went to a private secondary school, Walthamstow Hall and subsequently to Sevenoaks School, an independent boys’ school that had begun admitting girls to the sixth form. In 1988 Plum went up to Worcester College, Oxford. Plum published a short memoir of her first term at university (Oxford Girl, 2011).

Sykes’ mother Valerie Goad, a dress designer, separated from Sykes’ father Mark while Plum was at Oxford. Plum’s grandfather, Christopher Sykes (1907–1986), whom she knew as “F.G.”, was a friend and official biographer (1975) of the novelist Evelyn Waugh and son of the diplomat Sir Mark Sykes, (1869–1919), associated with the Sykes–Picot Agreement of 1916, by which Britain and France carved up the Ottoman Empire after WW I, with negative consequences. See previous posts. Plum’s 18th century forebear Sir Christopher Sykes (1749–1801), was a major figure in the enclosure movement that seized ownership of common land for private use, forcing peasants off their land, thus ensuring a supply of workers for the industrial revolution…

Plum’s grandpa’s pal Evelyn Waugh was of course the father of Auberon, right-wing journo and satirist of ‘Private Eye’ fame. Bron lived at Combe Florey near Taunton; he inherited the house from Evelyn. The Waughs were Catholics and Tory. Bron lived in du Cann’s constituency and although Bron robustly took the piss out of many things, including Mr Thrope, Bron’s loyalty remained to the Tory establishment and he never published a word about many matters of which he knew, including du Cann’s criminality, Gwynne, Dafydd, the Westminster Paedophile Ring etc. See the source imageI don’t actually know, but I suspect that Bron was mobilised against my grandfather and subsequently me. As my career was being wrecked, as well as the careers of my friends, Bron’s daughter Daisy published her First Novel to rave reviews from Bron’s colleagues and it was stressed that Daisy was a Bright Young Thing From Taunton. I was always told that Daisy went to Bishop Fox’s School – Brown’s mum used to teach there – but biographies of Daisy’s state that she went to Taunton School. As did the boy who was one of my best friends at Bawdrip Infants School…

Bron also starred in the NUS newspaper just after I graduated when the Gang was gearing up for serious war. It was at the time that the disgusting Phil Woolas became NUS President on the back of his knowledge of the Gwynne Row. Phil got as far as a Home Office Minister using his knowledge of Gwynne et al and me, as discussed in previous posts.

So Plum’s family and friends could have well been cashing in on the eruptions between the Gang and me to an even greater extent that Phil Woolas.

In 1993, Plum became a fashion assistant at British Vogue. She was featured that year, with, among others, designer Bella Freud and model Stella Tennant in Babes in London, in a photographic shoot by the American Steven Meisel (responsible in 1992 for the singer Madonna‘s controversial collection, Sex), which was produced by the rising fashion guru Isabella Blow (1958–2007). Isabella ‘committed suicide’ after severe depression and clinical negligence on the part of expensive private Top Docs that would have done Hergest proud. Isabella’s close friend fashion designer Alexander McQueen subsequently ‘committed suicide’ after er severe depression and not receiving the care that he needed. See previous posts for details.

Isabella, McQueen and Plum all knew Bodger’s son and colleagues and very probably Bodger as well.

In 1997, the year in which Ronnie Waterhouse opened his Inquiry and Diana crashed in a tunnel, Plum Sykes became a contributing editor on fashion for American Vogue, of which Anna Wintour, also British, had been Editor-in-Chief since 1988. I wonder if Nuclear Wintour knew Bodger?? This period at Vogue  inspired Lauren Weisberger‘s 2003 novel The Devil Wears Prada. Sykes soon became a familiar figure on the New York social scene, being frequently described as an “It girl”.

A decade later, at 38, Sykes reflected that “when you hit 30 you lose your edge”: invited by the Times to comment on the late-1990s trend for ultra-high heeled shoes, she observed that “these weird space-age shoes look cool and trendy and are a way of getting back to some degree”, but that “this type of trend is not a classic version of beauty. Men want women to be sexy. They’d be happy if we were all [the model] Gisele Bündchen, but that’s just not fashion”.

Which were rather condemning comments of Plum’s industry. Dunno about you Plum, but I’m 57 and I don’t feel that I’ve lost my edge at all, although Bodger et al did their best to ensure that I ended up dead. Thank goodness I got away from them.

The world of New York fashion was the setting for Sykes’ first novel, Bergdorf Blondes (2004), which was one of the most successful examples of “chick lit” (or “chic lit” as some dubbed Sykes’ writing) and sold a quarter of a million copies worldwide. It took its title from the Bergdorf Goodman store in Upper Manhattan.

A second novel, The Debutante Divorcée, was published in 2006. Sykes publicised it with an array of personal appearances at stores in New York (Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Frederic Fekkai, Ferragamo, Neiman Marcus and Oscar de la Renta). The Debutante Divorcée appeared in paperback in 2007.

Some have seen Sykes’ books as lying in natural succession to Sex and the City, Candace Bushnell‘s column in the New York Observer, which was the inspiration for a highly successful television series (HBO 1998–2004). Others remarked that the story was no less than the kind of offensive vapid claptrap you would expect from a dead-eyed rich girl. Despite their satire, others have regarded them as too rooted in Sykes’ own Park Avenue “set” to be reflective more generally of women’s lives in post-9/11 Manhattan.

Having some knowledge of what underpinned Plum’s Scene, I take the view that it is seriously sad, sordid and vacuous, but Plum is not the most culpable. It’s the Top Docs everyone, they’re monsters in disguise. No-one expects anything more from Nuclear Wintour and her mates, but there is still no acknowledgement that Bodger and pals were running an international trafficking ring…

Here’s Anna, with her Problem Area on display:

Anna is allowed to display her Problem Area because she’s the Boss. In the way that Bodger was allowed to have a huge belly and bad breath or indeed be killing and torturing prem babies, and Bodger’s colleagues could Assess me without ever having met me and declare me to be Dangerous and in need of living with Mr Savile, perjure themselves in Court etc.

In 2005 Plum Sykes married British entrepreneur Toby Rowland, son of businessman “Tiny” Rowland, at Sledmere House, her family’s ancestral home in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Her dress, with an eight-foot train and hand-sewn roses, was designed by Sykes’ friend and protégé of Isabella Blow, Alexander McQueen. Plum was sometimes described as a muse of McQueen; she modelled for some of his earliest catwalk shows, as well as for photoshoots of his designs. Before her wedding, Plum wrote an article for Vogue about shopping for suitable lingerie for her wedding night, an article that included reference to a “$900 bra”. Six years later some fashion journalists – anticipating correctly the chosen designer See the source image – claimed that Kate Middleton had been inspired by Plum’s wedding dress to choose Burton to design hers for her marriage to William, although others suggested that the inspiration was that of Sara Buys to William’s stepbrother, Tom Parker Bowles.

A pity about Isabella and McQueen though.

Plum and Rowland had their first child, Ursula, in October 2006 and their second child, Tess, in June 2010.

Sykes’ twin sister Lucy, who moved to New York in 1996, became fashion director of Marie Claire, and later a designer of children’s clothes. Sykes later joked, with reference to the heiresses Paris and Nicky Hilton, that “Lucy and I were Paris and Nicky without the sextape”. Lucy Sykes married Euan Rellie, a New York-based investment banker, in 2002.

In the April 2012 issue of Vogue, Sykes writes of her three-year struggle with anxiety disorder and agoraphobia after the birth of her children, a condition which rendered her unable to work or to maintain her social life. Sykes admitted “I had visited doctors and consultants and had tests, procedures and scans, but no one could tell me what was wrong… I felt terrified, mentally and physically I was jelly. I was afraid to do anything. “Take some Xanax”, said one doctor, ‘it’s anxiety”. Sykes attended an anxiety recovery programme developed by anxiety expert, Charles Linden, which she cites as the solution that returned her to working for American Vogue and a full and active social life. In the article, Sykes says ‘I started The Linden Method… and felt better almost immediately… I took the girls to the park and pushed them on the swings, something I hadn’t been able to do for two years… now more than a year later, the anxiety has not returned.”

I do hope that Charles Linden found that business boomed after this advert starring Plum.See the source image

 

Now Then. Tiny Rowland died on 25 July 1998, from cancer, aged 81, midway through the Waterhouse Inquiry. The Ah the Doctors they were wonderful etc.  By July 1998, F and I were experiencing very serious grief constantly from the Gang, after we had been acquitted by Caernarfon Magistrates Court in the wake of the Gang prosecuting us following Arfon Community Mental Health Team CPN Bridget Lloyd’s lies to the police and perjury.

I must apologise to readers. Throughout this blog I have stated that we were acquitted at trial in Jan 1997; no, it was Jan 1998. The confusion arose because so many of the ‘summaries’ of events in my files compiled by lawyers etc have errors on them. Furthermore, because the Gang were constantly lying, forging, supplying false dates, names etc on documentation, it is very easy to become confused. Whilst perusing the 10,000 documents a few days ago, I found a whole batch of letters that I – and a letter that F – had written to Top Docs and NHS managers at the time and our dates and chronologies are very clear. We were acquitted by Caernarfon Magistrates in Jan 1998, not Jan 1997.

Just a few highlights. On 4 Feb 1997, Alun Davies wrote a letter in response to complaints from F and I about the constant harassment and false accusations on the part of the Gang. F had written in his letter that he didn’t want to get staff into trouble, but this was becoming ridiculous. I had mentioned in my letter that we were so sick of this that I had raised the matter with Dafydd Wigley, the MP for Caernarfon. Davies’s letter to me, dated 4 Feb 1997, actually suggested that as F didn’t want to get staff into trouble, I might like to bear that in mind with regard to my communication to Dafydd Wigley. The Waterhouse Inquiry opened in Jan 1997.See the source image

One of Dafydd Wigley’s political advisors was Ioan Bowen Rees, Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council throughout the 1980s. Prior to arriving at Gwynedd CC in 1980, Ioan had been the County Secretary of Dyfed CC. There was a ring in Dyfed directly linked to Gwynne and Dafydd. When complaints of abuse of kids in care in Gwynedd could be ignored no longer in the mid-1980s, Ioan commissioned an Independent Team to investigate, who gave Gwynedd CC a clean bill of health. The Independent Team were Senior Officers from Dyfed CC, Ioan’s former colleagues. Mark Drakeford worked as a social worker for Dyfed CC. See the source imageIoan advised on the establishment of the Welsh Assembly, being an Expert on Local Gov’t and Democracy. Ioan died on 4 May 1999, two days before the first batch of AMs were sworn in.

Throughout 1997, Ronnie took evidence in public from witnesses. Former kids in care who described the beatings, rapes etc were denounced by the world, as well as by Ronnie, as Lying Criminal Drug Addicts. All ‘professionals’ who agreed to give evidence were granted immunity from prosecution and were represented by lawyers. One such lawyer was the bent Gwynedd CC solicitor Ron Evans. One of Alwyn Jones’s colleagues was another. Another is now Judge Niclas Parry. Patricia Scotland QC, who was representing the Welsh Office, became Baroness Patricia, one of Miranda’s People’s Peers, just a few months after the Inquiry opened.See the source image

Ronnie suspended the Inquiry suddenly in the Spring, just for four weeks or so, declaring that he needed a holiday. He nipped over to Hong Kong, where he bumped into Derry Irvine and they had lunch together, marvelling that within two or three weeks Derry would be Lord Chancellor. On 24 April 1997 while Ronnie was in Hong Kong, Peter Howarth, the Bryn Estyn member of staff who on 8 July 1994 was sentenced to 10 years for the abuse of kids in care, died from a heart attack in HMP Wakefield. Howarth’s long-term friend and colleague, Matt Arnold, Head of Bryn Estyn, had died ‘from an unidentified blood disease’ on 9 June 1994, four days before Howarth’s trial opened at Chester Crown Court.

On 6 Aug 1997, a M. Jones based at 26 College Road, Bangor (the offices of the Arfon CMHT, a joint venture between Gwynedd Social Services and Gwynedd NHS), made a handwritten note stating that I had been complaining about Bridget Lloyd and Dafydd sexually abusing patients.

On 16 Aug 1997 I wrote to Alun Davies re our recent arrest and I told Davies, once more, that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients.

On 26 Aug 1997, Nerys Owen (Director of Nursing Services, Gwynedd Community Health Trust) wrote to Tony Francis, thanking him for the copy of the letter that I had written to Alun Davies. Nerys stated that F and I had written to her re a number of complaints that had not been pursued ‘one because it is unjustified and the other because they make reference to times which are out of date in terms of the policy’.

Problem solved, just Arrest Them!Image result for peter cook biased judge images

Tony Francis was demanding a Strategy Meeting…

On 31 Aug 1997 there was a crash in Paris.Image result for diana car crash images

On 13 Sept 1997, F wrote a letter to John Mullen, the CEO of Gwynedd Community Health Trust, that I do not remember ever reading before. This letter could not have been clearer. F reiterates to John Mullen that our complaints were not being investigated, that my complaints about Dafydd never were investigated, yet in Nov 1994, Dafydd was able to perjure himself in Court and even secure an injunction against us from Liverpool High Court thus. F wrote that Dafydd was known for preying on female patients, that F knew that numerous complaints had been made about Dafydd sexually abusing patients, that F knew women who had told F that Dafydd had behaved indecently towards them but no action was ever taken. In his letter, F explained to Mullen that not long previously, I had given F details of my Dafydd experiences, among them the time when I was unlawfully detained at Ysbyty Gwynedd by Jackie Brandt on 17 Aug 1986 and physically dragged into a room containing Dafydd by Bridget Lloyd, because I was refusing to see him. F mentions that I had told him that Bridget had left my arm bruised, such was the force used. Of course F also stated that once I was in the room, I was left alone with Dafydd who proceeded to Talk Sex… F’s letter explains that he was so angry at what I told him – I hadn’t previously supplied F with full details of that encounter – that he rang the Arfon CMHT and swore at a male colleague of Bridget’s. F goes on to explain that hours later we were arrested for ‘threatening Bridget’. F’s letter of 13 Sept 1997 tells Mullen that ‘we are now nervously awaiting trial’. Image result for derry irvine imagesOnce more, F asks for a full investigation from Mullen.

Mullen’s response to F’s letter seems to have been to immediately sound the alarm with a view to covering up all over again. On 22 Sept 1997, a fax marked URGENT was sent to Alun Davies re F’s letter, with the covering note of ‘urgent comments please, JFM needs to reply before Wednesday’. JFM being Mullen. There is no copy of the content of Mullen’s fax to Davies, but it comprised a number of pages…

On 22 Sept 1997 George Thomas aka Lord Tonypandy, the most notorious of the Westminster Paedophiles died.

On 11 Nov 1997 Robin Holden, Head Of Mental Health Nursing at Gwynedd Community Health Trust, took our phone call re Dafydd sexually abusing patients, refused to identify himself but logged all of our ‘allegations’ and Shared them with everyone else.

Robin Holden wrote a File Note on 13 Nov 1997. Holden had held a meeting with Tony Francis, Jackie Brandt, Sheila Jenkins, Helen Hughes and Sarah Horton. I have no idea who Helen Hughes is. Sheila Jenkins was a highly abusive Gwynedd social worker, a member of the Arfon CMHT, who was married to a Bangor University academic. Their daughter Sarah Jenkins was on the psychology degree at Bristol University with Gordon Brown’s wife Sarah. After graduation, Sarah Jenkins shared accommodation on Anglesey with a girl whom I knew well from UCNW, rented from D.G.E. Wood and located in the extensive garden of his house at Llandegfan. The Jenkins’ family were big Labour Party supporters. Sarah Horton was an Occupational Therapist in the Arfon CMHT. She was a good friend of a neighbour of mine in Rachub who tried to speak to Sarah about the constant intimidation that I was receiving at the hands of Sarah’s colleagues. Sarah refused to discuss the matter on the grounds of confidentiality. Sarah’s friend from Rachub showed considerable public spirit when she continued to raise her concerns with regard to two other Empowered Service Users in Rachub who were very obviously being left to die by Gwynedd Social Services. Then she obtained a job looking after learning disabled adults and was horrified at what she witnessed. She also knew of a case of one of her clients who was neglected/abused at the Hergest Unit and she was well aware of how bad the Bethesda GPs were… Sarah Horton subsequently set up a charidee on Anglesey…

The meeting was held ‘in response to a request that we review the outcome of last Thursday’s meeting at Bron Afon’. Holden noted that there was confusion because there had been two meetings last Thursday… Holden noted that Tony Francis was incredibly rude to them all, asking ‘Why don’t you use your IQ a bit?’, ‘You’re more naïve than I thought you were’ and ‘You don’t seem to know your own GNC code of practice’.

Holden noted that ‘as the meeting progressed, he seemed to settle’.

Bechod! Holden used his Nursing Experience and Skills to Settle The Consultant Psychiatrist! See the source image

Robin had a terrible time with His Patient in that meeting, ‘initially he [Tony] was adamant that he would not be RMO [Responsible Medical Officer] to her [me]’. The Patient subsequently agreed that he would remain my RMO ‘until such time as another consultant took over, but I advised that this was putting him under a great deal of stress’.Image result for male nurse with elderly patient images

I do hope that Robin told Prof Mark Williams about His Patient’s distress, Tony Francis practised Mindfulness and was mates with Mark, but still became hooked on opiates…Image result for professor mark williams images

Shortly after Mark Williams relocated from Bangor to take up a Chair at Oxford’s Dept of Psychiatry, that Dept welcomed another new Prof, one Tom Burns from Springfield Hospital. Image result for professor tom burns images

 

Robin Holden noted that at no time in the meeting were any new threats by me revealed, although there was a feeling by Dr Tony Francis that my ‘insulting manner always seems threatening’. Image result for professor mark williams imagesRobin stated that he would be meeting with Tony and Sadie in the morning. He later added a P.S. to his file note explaining that the meeting was subsequently cancelled following a phone call from Sadie.See the source image

Shortly after this, a notice appeared in the Hergest Unit announcing that the Mental Health Act Commission would be visiting Hergest on 21 Nov 1997 and that patients could raise matters of concern with the Commissioners if they wished. Previous posts have explained that when this had last happened in Spring 1994, F and I had complained to the MHAC about Dafydd, yet no action was taken and Robin Holden had even refused to document that we had alleged that Dafydd had sexually abused patients on the grounds that to do so would be libelling Dafydd. Days after we met with the MHAC in 1994, Dafydd planted a brick, claiming that I had thrown it through his glass door in the early hours and the police recorded this as fact. An alarm system was installed to Protect Dafydd From Me, meetings with the North Wales Police were held about the Danger that I presented Image result for paul bowden imagesand in Nov 1994, Dafydd obtained his injunction from Liverpool High Court after perjuring himself telling them all about me throwing that brick. The police and the MDU knew within days of the brick being planted that I could not have done it, I was seen miles away at the time…

On 31 May 1994, Frank Beck ‘died from a heart attack’ in HMP Whitemoor, Cambridgeshire. Labour Leader John Smith had pegged out some two weeks previously. Letters about F and I making representation to the MHAC had begun flying back and forth by April 1994.

So in Nov 1997, F and I didn’t bother to meet the MHAC. We graffitied the poster, noting that all complaints about Dafydd would be ignored. F made a supplementary notice explaining to patients that if they were feeling suicidal, they needed to tell Alun Davies and ‘he will help you do it’.

On 20 Nov 1997, Dr Chris Jones, Forensic Psychiatrist (based in Wrexham) sent a memo to Alun Davies. Chris Jones stated that further to their discussions on 8 Nov 1997, he wanted to make it clear that Tony Francis remained my Top Doc and Jackie Ehlen my keyworker ‘purely because of the difficulties with College Road [the Arfon CMHT]. I do not accept that at the current time she [me] requires treatment in conditions of medium security, nor that she is a person who meets the criteria for the Forensic Service.’ Chris Jones tells Davies that the Forensic Service will be billing the Hergest Unit for the Forensic input… Chris Jones’s letter was signed pp PA Williams and was CC’d to Tony Francis and Jackie Ehlen.

On 27 Nov 1997, Robin Holden, ‘Head Of Mental Health Nursing/Lead Manager – AMI [Adult Mental Illness]’, wrote an internal memo to Jackie Ehlen thanking Jackie for her first assessment interview with me. After F and I were arrested, Tony Francis et al banned the Hergest Whistleblower and Ella Fisk from speaking to us and we were told that the Forensic Team were taking over our ‘care’, us being so Dangerous. Jackie was the Senior Angel with the Forensic Team. Holden told Jackie ‘I was very impressed with the quality. Please feel free to seek me out if you require support with this difficult case’.

My post ‘Inside Information About A Hergest Unit Death’ discusses how Jackie, Sadie and Sadie’s junior doc Colin Flood (Colin Qualified in 1986 at the University of Dublin; he is still on the Medical Register with a licence to practice and works as a GP in Llandudno) all lied at the inquest of Dorothy Griffiths, a patient who inexplicably died on the psych ward at Ysbyty Gwynedd in 1987/88. The Coroner acknowledged that the truth had not been told, but the matter was never followed up…  I only found out years later that they ALL knew that I knew that they had lied and I had evidence that was never presented in Court…Image result for paul bowden images

Jackie’s Report of her Assessment Interview with me was dated 17 Nov 1997. She noted that F and I had just appeared before the Magistrates and pleaded not guilty. I had told Jackie ‘in a very angry, forthright and absolute way that she [I] was assaulted by Bridget [Lloyd] whilst a patient on Seiriol Ward in 1985. [It was Aug 1986.] It was on this occasion that Sally was then taken to Denbigh and was ‘placed into the hands of Dr DA Jones’. [No, I was taken to Denbigh after Jones ordered me to be wrongly arrested in Dec 1986.] Sally is quite clear in her own mind that Bridget contributed to the alleged abuse by Dr DA Jones… Discussing these events since August [our arrest] I understand that Sally received a letter from the Welsh Office stating that they were not going to proceed with investigating the complaints that she was making against DA Jones…’

The Welsh Secretary at the time that letter was written was either Ron ‘I was looking for Badgers’ Davies Rondavies1998.jpg who was at the time married to barrister Christina, Official portrait of Christina Rees crop 2.jpgnow the Labour MP for Neath, or it may have been Alun Michael, AlunMichael crop.jpgnow Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales; Alun’s son Tal is now CEO of Gwynedd CAB, Lucille Hughes being on the Senior Management Board of CAB! See the source imageThe shift re Welsh Secretary changed as it were on 24 Oct 1998 and guess what? There does not seem to be a copy of that letter from the Welsh Office in my files…

The Welsh Office at the very time that they were refusing to investigate my complaints were paying good money to Baroness Patricia Scotland to represent them at the Waterhouse Inquiry which they had set up under the previous Gov’t when The Hague was Welsh Secretary. Patsy aggressively cross-examined the former kids in care who gave evidence, causing some to throw up and one to collapse. If only they’d maintained their Mindfulness Practice.See the source image

Mark Williams discovered the Miracle Of Mindfulness in 1987 and his first book on the subject thanked Keith Fearns and the Arfon Community Mental Health Team. 1987 was the year of the Cunning Plan to fit me up and imprison me and it was either in 1987 or 1988 when Dorothy Griffiths ‘drowned herself in the bath’ while Jackie Ehlen was in charge of the ward and those porkies were told at the inquest…See the source image

Jackie observed in her Report that F and I were on conditional bail until our next Court appearance in Dec 1997, after our arrest when George Thomas WAS ON HIS DEATHBED.

Robin Holden had written a letter to Bridget Lloyd dated 12 Nov 1997, confirming that Bridget was being given ‘5 days special leave on the grounds of urgent personal need to absent yourself from the area until after they [F and I] have attended Court on 17 Nov 1997. Please contact me on your return so that we can review the situation.’ Holden CC’d the letter to Alun Davies, Nerys Owen and Bruce Stephens.See the source image

The Gang certainly maxed out on Bridget’s trauma at our trial. The Court heard how Bridget was so terrified that I would attack her and ‘her young children’ that she had been issued with a personal alarm to carry with her at all times AND a safe house had been organised for her if I was acquitted.

I have a document written by Bridget that she sent to a senior NHS manager in Gwynedd just after we were arrested stating that she was not frightened of me, had only ever met me once, years ago and she was confident that I would not recognise her if I saw her.See the source image

On 16 Dec 1997 a Strategy Meeting re F and I was held in the Board Room at the Trust HQ. In attendance were: John Mullen, Nerys Owen, Tony Francis, Tony Lane (the Trust’s lawyer, based in Caernarfon), Jackie Ehlen, Keith Fearns, the Hergest whistleblower, Dr Jeremy Corson (Medical Director of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust), Robin Holden, Sadie Francis, Bridget Lloyd, Dr Chris Jones, Ella Fisk (Sister who ran the Day Centre at Hergest), Bruce Stephens (Nurse Manager of the Hergest Unit). See previous posts for details on this crowd…

Ronnie Waterhouse stopped taking evidence from witnesses in the latter months of 1997, just as Jackie Ehlen carried out her first Assessment on me with which Robin Holden was so impressed. Rob Evans, Assistant Director of Gwynedd Social Services with Responsibility for Mental Health, gave evidence at the Waterhouse Inquiry and told Ronnie that the Community Mental Health Services in Gwynedd were among the best in Europe. See ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ No-one cross-examined Rob causing him to collapse, although he was telling whoppers. Rob had consistently flatly refused to take any action against Fearns, Brandt et al for harassing/threatening F and I or perjuring themselves. Before Rob held the remit for Mental Health, Rob ran the Children’s Services for Lucille…

A handwritten note attached to the guff about the Strategy Meeting mentions that our trial at Caernarfon Magistrates Court will be held on 2 Jan 1998. Our trial was held on 20 Jan 1998; this was another error in the records…

In Jan 1998, I wrote a series of letters to Alun Davies reiterating that Dafydd was sexually harassing/abusing/exploiting patients. In response, Mullen wrote to Alun Davies and asked ‘Should we deal with it as a formal complaint?’

This was the CEO of the Trust writing to the Senior Manager responsible for Gwynedd’s Psychiatric and Learning Disability Services during a Public Inquiry into the serious abuse of children in care in north Wales over decades. The Director of Gwynedd Social Services was the mistress of the man whom I was constantly naming as sexually exploiting patients. The Public Inquiry investigated the abuse of children in the child and adolescent psychiatric unit in Colwyn Bay, Gwynfa Unit and admitted that it had been serious. The children were mostly referred to Gwynfa by psychiatrists in Gwynedd and Gwynfa was managed by an Angel who had Trained at Denbigh… See eg. ‘Don’t Be Silly, He’s Nice’.

So what did Alun Davies do when Mullen wondered if perhaps he should treat my letters as a formal complaint? Er, Davies wrote to Tony Francis to ask him if he thought that I might have ‘felt down over the New Year’…

On 21 Jan 1998 the day after our acquittal, I wrote to Jackie Ehlen and absolutely laid it on the line, but no, I didn’t ‘threaten’ or use ‘unacceptable language’ etc. I did mention in my letter to Jackie that Alun Davies had yelled and roared at us after the case when we simply said ‘NOT GUILTY Mr Davies, do we get an apology?’ Tony Francis yelled at F as well when F asked for an apology…

On 16 Feb 1998, Alun Davies wrote to me in response to my letter of 13 Feb 1998 on the subject of er Dafydd sexually exploiting/abusing patients, saying ‘The matters you raise are not new, I am satisfied that procedures within the mental health services in Gwynedd give more than adequate safeguards to the subject of sexual abuse of patients. I am copying your letter to Dr Tony Francis who is currently off sick.’

Tony Francis was by then in the throes of obvious serious illness, physical and mental. I am told that he became addicted to opiates, as a result of the treatment from his friend and colleague, another Gang member who dates back to the Glorious Reign Of Gwynne, Dr Christine Evans, the crude old bag who revelled in being known as the ‘Dick Doctor’. Dr Chris doubled up as charidee worker, community pub manager, local Councillor and as the net closed in, Dr Chris found herself the Chair of the North Wales Community Health Council. See eg. ‘A Charming And Uplifting Sound…’

On 27 Feb 1998, a Mrs A.G. Lloyd, ‘Headquarters Services Manager’, wrote to Alun Davies and told him – in response to my fury at our arrest and the refusal of anyone to apologise when we were acquitted – that Davies could tell me that I could always request an Independent Review under the NHS complaints procedure. That was the procedure that served me so well in 1989 when Robert Owen and Buglass got together and failed to address the serious criminality…

On 18 Feb 1998 – BEFORE A.G. Lloyd wrote to Alun Davies See the source image– John Mullen wrote to me telling me that if I was this unhappy with matters I could request an Independent Review by writing to Mr J. Mercer, Convenor of Complaints, Trust HQ, Bryn-y-Neuadd. Mullen helpfully explained that Mr J. Mercer ‘is a Non-Executive Director of the Trust Board’.

On 2 April 1998, Sharon Thompson – at that time Tony Francis’s secretary – documented that I had ‘threatened to stab Jackie Brandt’. Tony told Sharon not to worry about it.See the source image

On 8 April 1998, I wrote a letter to Bruce Stephens making a further complaint with regard to Dafydd, the sexual harassment, Jackie Brandt’s and Bridget’s key roles in my first encounter with Dafydd and the non-stop aggro and false accusations to which I had been subjected from then on.

On 22 June 1998, Alun Davies wrote to John Mullen telling him not to address a formal complaint that F and I had made ‘reiterating issues’. Er, guess which issues we were reiterating?? Copies of the correspondence were passed to Jackie Ehlen, Case Manager… F and I remained with the Forensic Team even after we had been acquitted of all charges, there was a flat refusal to treat as us Non-Dangerous.

It is striking just how many times during the first two years of the Waterhouse Inquiry, 1997 and 1998, that F and I wrote, phoned or simply said to senior figures in the Gwynedd Community Health Trust ‘Dafydd is sexually abusing patients and NO-ONE ever investigates any complaints about him’.

My post ‘An Error Of Judgement’ discusses how Lord Snowdon’s long term mistress, Ann Hills, was found dead, on the roof of her London penthouse, in a kneeling position, dressed in party gear, in the last hours of 1996/first hours of 1997. Ann’s dad Dr Elliott Philipp was an Obs and Gynae who was one of those facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring; he was a cousin of Sigmund Freud. Ann’s death was declared to be ‘suicide’ by the Westminster Coroner, the notorious Paul Knapman, See the source imagealumnus of St George’s and, I was told when I worked in London, ‘corrupt’. Any toxicologist or Top Doc would have known that Ann could not have died in the way suggested in the timescale suggested, it simply could not have happened, even Knapman, St George’s (1968) then barrister of Gray’s Inn (1972), will have known that.

I’ve only just noticed that Knapman went to Epsom College, the public school known for producing Posh Doctors, many of whom were Of The Ring. Previous posts eg. ‘I Am Passionately Committed…’ discussed Epsom School governor Dame Kathleen Raven, Britain’s Chief Nursing Officer from the late 1950s until 1972, who found herself CNO after working at Leeds with Jimmy Savile, who concealed Gwynne and Dafydd’s crimes and so much more. As Matron in Leeds, Dame Kathleen pioneered Beau Parlours, ‘comfortable rooms where a Nurse may entertain her Gentleman Friends’. Dame Kathleen’s brother went to Epsom School and became a Bart’s surgeon – Kathleen trained as an Angel at Bart’s herself – and her husband was the Prof of Dermatology at Durham. The Dame and her brother Trained at Bart’s, where Lord Snowdon’s grandfather had Trained as a Top Doc and psychiatrist. Ronald Armstrong-Jones, Lord Snowdon’s barrister father who kept a country home near Caernarfon as well as his main residence in Belgravia, was a governor of Bart’s.

After years of aggro and substandard bollocks from Bethesda Surgery, F and I changed GPs. I see from my documents that we were accepted as patients at Bron Derw Surgery in Bangor on 30 May 1997. See the source imageI have blogged previously about Dr Lauren Kraaijeveld at Bron Derw, how I always found her very pleasant, how she had admitted to me that Dafydd was ‘a ‘sick wicked man’ and ‘a crook’ and that she had actually seen documentary evidence of a huge embezzlement from the NHS scam perpetrated by Dafydd, ‘I saw his signature on the cheque’.Image result for peter cook biased judge images Lauren was like Penny Smith in Tooting; she didn’t, to my knowledge, mistreat patients herself, but she undoubtedly knew that they were not safe and that her colleagues were involved with serious crime.Image result for professor tom burns images

Dr Lauren is still listed on the Medical Register as having a licence to practice and she now seems to be based at the GPs surgery in Penmaenmawr in Conwy. Penmaenmawr is near Llanfairfechan, the site of Bryn-y-Neuadd Hospital, the now closed long-stay institution for the severely learning disabled, that also received patients lobotomised by Gwynne who were completely buggered but hadn’t actually died. Bryn-y-Neuadd was seriously grim, the location of as much cruelty, dehumanisation and abuse as Denbigh and Llanfairfechan was a village in which nearly every resident’s livelihood depended upon the grisly reality behind the Happy Place that was Bryn-y-Neuadd never being admitted. After Bryn-y-Neuadd closed, some of the Angels there bagged jobs as tutors in what became the School of Nursing at Bangor University. The building itself served as the HQ of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust and then the new medium secure psych unit was built there, Ty Llewllyn. There are still patients in Ty Llewellyn who were incarcerated on the advice of Dafydd and Gwynne decades ago and as the years passed were transferred Back To Their Home Area. Guess who wields power over their lives?? See previous posts.

Dr Do Nothing Roberts tried to have me transferred to Ty Llewellyn after I Attacked Angels in Taliesin Ward, but Ty Llewellyn refused to accept me, stating that I was not a Dangerous Patient. I only know about this because I now have the documentation… I suspect the real rationale was for the Cunning Plan to swing into action and me to be Imprisoned, having been deemed Dangerous But Not Mad Enough For Ty Llewellyn. Nobody would really want me in Ty Llewellyn, not with my letter-writing habits and powers of observation.

The Penmaenmawr/Llanfairfechan area is a hotspot for Care Homes of varying quality. During the Great Genocide of the Waterhouse Inquiry/Report years, after the Day Centre at the Hergest Unit closed down and Empowered Services Users were gradually rendered destitute and turned up dead, an Empowered one whom F and I knew, Delyth, was rehoused in an old folk’s home in Penmaenmawr. No-one knew why, because she wasn’t from Penmaenmawr or even elderly, she wasn’t dementing, she just had terrible tardive dyskinesia from the Medication That Helped Her So Much, thus she looked weird and was targeted by thugs. But if you listened to what she was saying it was totally rational. She died not long after, in the Care Home. I have no idea how, someone just told me that Delyth had died in the Care Home but no-one knew details.

Not long after Delyth Passed Over, Philip Jones, with whom I had been mates in Denbigh, was found dead in Penmaenmawr, in his Supported Accommodation. George Carman and the Digger knew all about Phil, I used to write to Brown about him when I was in Denbigh and my letters were among those stolen from my house in Rachub by the builders and flogged to Carman and the Digger.See the source image

Carman and the Digger also ended up with the letter that I wrote to Brown the evening of the day that my friend Anne was killed by the Gang.

Dr Lauren Qualified as a Top Doc at Manchester University in 1985. Tony and Sadie worked at Manchester University until they relocated to north Wales in 1983; Sadie qualified as a Top Doc at Manchester. As did the genocidal Dr ‘Do Nothing’ Tony Roberts, Clinical Director of Hergest, who boasted the highest suicide rate among his female patients of any Top Doc in England and Wales except for someone in Camden. Do Nothing won that award repeatedly for many years. The Lady Killer qualified from Manchester University in 1984.

I have only recently found letters from Tony Francis to one of Lauren’s partners at Bron Derw, Dr A.R. Vaughan. My memory might be playing up here, but I don’t ever remember seeing Dr Vaughan in his capacity as a Top Doc. I know who he is because some years before I had a part-time job cleaning at that surgery, so I knew who the docs were, but I’m sure that I didn’t ‘see’ Dr Vaughan, it was always Lauren.

Francis wrote to Vaughan on 1 July 1997 and on a number of occasions afterwards. Vaughan must have known that Francis was a dangerous doctor, even I can see that from these letters… Dr A.R. Vaughan was Dr Antony Rathbone Vaughan, who qualified at London University in 1972. Dr Vaughan has voluntarily relinquished his registration with the GMC. So Dr Vaughan’s Good Name Remains and should anyone forward the documents in my possession to the GMC with an accompanying note along the lines of ‘Howz About That Then??’, the GMC will respond with an arsey letter explaining that this ain’t their problem.

On 10 Nov 1998, Tony Francis wrote to Dr Lauren telling her that F and I had decided not to move to Scotland. That was because Sir Idwal Pugh, Mr Big at the Halifax, had ensured that the mortgage offer that had been previously made on a cottage on the Isle of Ling was withdrawn… See previous posts. I didn’t tell Francis why we didn’t move, but then I had no idea that the Gang knew why we didn’t and were the reason for it. They needed us in north Wales – Idwal didn’t block a subsequent mortgage offer for a house on Anglesey – because more prosecutions would be coming our way. See the source imageTiny was dead and remaining irritating witnesses had to be kept under the jackboot.

Once we were living on Anglesey, Drs Richard and Medwyn Williams of Parc Glas Surgery, Bodorgan, ignored the madness at the Hergest Unit, although Medwyn Williams was honest enough to admit that the problems there were so great that patients were not being helped. Richard W. Williams was just unpleasant and not interested in his patients. The last letter that Tony Francis wrote about me to a GP in his capacity as my Top Doc seems to have been to Richard Williams on 12 April 1999. By 9 Aug 2000, Tony Francis had resigned – Tony left his job pretty much as the Waterhouse Report was published, but then Alun Michael (born on Anglesey) decided that he didn’t want to be FM any longer just as the Waterhouse Report was published as discussed in ‘News From Sicily’ – and Sadie had taken over as my Top Doc, Sadie writing to Richard Williams on that date.

Medwyn Williams turned up on the Community Health Council and made a lot of noise about the shite cardiology service in north Wales, but no-one would tackle the maddest and most dangerous, the sodding psychiatrists and social workers. At the time, the Drs Francis lived at Dwyran on Anglesey, not far from Bodorgan. Sadie was the consultant psych providing ‘services’ for Anglesey, so Anglesey GPs certainly knew her. Then there was the havoc in Llangefni, a small rural market town, caused by Class A drugs. Well the Drugs Team was based in Llangefni and ultimately controlled by Dafydd, who lived at Talwrn, some three miles away from Anglesey…

The house that Idwal did allow us to buy was not far from Llangefni and a few weeks after we moved in we began to experience aggro from local people involved with Class A drugs. I never linked it to Dafydd, although I knew why Llangefni was awash with heroin and coke, but I’ve received info recently that the Gang wanted me within reach of Dafydd’s addicts…

ALL local politicians knew about the crime, the chaos and the cause. As did politicians who had originally come from Anglesey but made it big in Tufnell Park. Image result for glenys kinnock images

Dr Richard Wyn Williams qualified at Liverpool University in 1972 and has voluntarily relinquished his registration with the GMC. Dr Medwyn Williams qualified at Liverpool University in 1981 and has also voluntarily relinquished his registration. I am only glad that their Good Names Remain.

The Drs’ Williams Practice Nurse knew about the Hergest, she discussed the chaos presiding there with F.

As for my complaints ‘reiterating issues’, previous posts have blogged in detail about the forged documentation, constant lies, wrongful arrests, fallacious allegations, breaches of confidentiality or simply fantasies about other patients as well as me that were sent to third parties; there was very little let-up. I won’t repeat everything here, readers will have to do a bit of cross referencing to previous posts, but the issues were reiterated because complaints were just NEVER dealt with and very often followed by another arrest of the complainant…

Just a few examples.

On 4 July 1994, Ian Rickard, Senior Nurse at the Hergest Unit, wrote to Tony Francis to ask him if he thought that I should be assessed by a Forensic Psych. I’d been Complaining again, to the MHAC and there was that Brick that I’d thrown through Dafydd’s glass door.

On 6 July 1994, Tony Francis wrote to Rickard and told him that he did not feel that me seeing a forensic psychiatrist would be helpful – after all I’d seen forensic psychiatrists before…See the source image

On 8 July 1994, Peter Howarth, a key member of staff at Bryn Estyn, was sentenced to 10 years for the abuse of boys in care in north Wales.

On 18 July 1994, Dafydd wrote to Ian Rickard, (Location Manager, Senior Nurse) re me ‘screaming abuse’ at Dafydd and ‘interfering with his car’ no less. This letter was stamped as having been received on 20 July 1994.

On 13 Sept 1994, Tom Harney (Harney was a CPN with the Arfon CMHT and was known to Empowered Service Users as ‘the alcoholic alcohol counsellor, who runs that pub near Conwy’; Harney went to work for Dafydd’s charidee CAIS when he retired from the NHS) sent a note to Alun Davies stating that ‘a female who refused to identify herself by name’ had rung complaining about Brandt at 11-15 am. Olwen W. Olwen, Senior Secretary at the Arfon CMHT, added that at 11-40 am ‘a similar phone call’ was made in which the caller accused Jackie Brandt of ‘treating patients like shit’. I can’t remember making these calls but I share the caller’s sentiments. Harney’s note was stamped as being received by Biggus Dickus on 19 Sept 1994.

On 16 Sept 1994 Rob Evans, Assistant Director of Gwynedd Social Services (address Pencadlys, Caernarfon) Image result for dafydd wigley images received from Keith Fearns, a ‘self-explanatory report from Bridget Lloyd, FYI’. Fearns noted to Rob ‘You may feel this has a bearing on our recent discussions and upon the legal position with regard to Mrs Brandt’. Fearns  CC’d it to Janet Hughes, Legal Dept, Social Services.

At the time, no-one would investigate complaints from F, me or indeed other Empowered Service Users, of intimidation from the Arfon CMHT. Brandt had by then perjured herself in the High Court twice, then in Bangor Magistrates Court and even after that tried to have F and I arrested again. Brandt then refused to go to the Hergest Unit if we were there, claiming that she could not be put in Danger. Gwynedd Social Services and their lawyers backed Brandt all the way. It was then stated that F and I were ‘preventing the mental health staff from carrying out their work’. We were not the only people who had made serious complaints about the Arfon Community Thugs and Perjurers, there were many, including about Brandt.Image result for walk on by the stranglers images

On 11 Oct 1994, Dafydd wrote a particularly mad letter to John Mullen regarding my alleged crimes towards Dafydd’s car (the famous Gold Range Rover), telling Mullen that he had asked the MDU to raise an injunction against me. Dafydd CC’d his letter to Keith Thomson, NHS manager. Thomson was not at the top of the tree in those days, but he became CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust a few years later, after his colleague Barry Shingles who was Tipped For The Top ‘committed suicide’ in 1999. Image result for walk on by the stranglers imagesThomson was in a league of his own, as discussed in previous posts. Thomson was a local Bangor boy who went to Friar’s School who spent a time working in NHS management in Stirling, where he got to know Lord Jack McConnell, possibly Prof Alexis Jay and other fun people…Image result for medical defence union slogan images

Dafydd had previously CC’d one of his crazy letter to the MDU, written to Ian Rickard on 7 June 1994, CC’d to Tony Francis and Dr Devakumar as well. The letter was a classic, referring to a ‘disturbance’ caused by me ‘about a month ago’ and the trauma that I had caused Dafydd ‘today’. In the letter, Dafydd reminded everyone that Prof Bluglass had predicted that I would end in a ward for the criminally insane. See the source imageImage result for medical defence union slogan imagesDafydd was certainly busy on 7 June 1994 because he wrote Rickard two letters, one of which addressed Ian Rickard as ‘Manager, Hergest Unit’. Dafydd mentioned his letter to the MDU and that he’d spoken to Sadie Francis; Dafydd’s letter referred to the Drs Francis own dealings with the MDU. This second letter of Dafydd’s to Rickard was CC’d to Sadie, Tony Francis, Devakumar and the er MDU.

What did the MDU think was going on??? Ah well, Bodger and Malcolm were in the midst of the Huge Research Fraud that would unravel during the last months  of 1994, the MDU are a very tolerant organisation re Top Docs.Image result for medical defence union slogan images

On 28 Oct 1994, Alun Davies sent a letter to Dafydd concerning my ‘allegation’ that Dafydd had tried to bribe me in Aug 1987. The letter was CC’d to Tony Francis and Ella Fisk.

On 9 Dec 1994, Laurie Wood – the former manager of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh who had become the Chief Exec of the Clwydian Community Trust – wrote telling me that in 1989 Dafydd had been ‘interviewed’ by the Medical Director of Clwyd Health Authority (Dr M. Jeffries) about the matter of a voluntary patient being kept in a locked ward ‘and stated that similar problems had not occurred since’. Laurie maintained that ‘evidence to support allegations of sexual harassment had not been produced [by me], despite being asked for on several occasions. I do not therefore feel that this should be pursued further’.Image result for professor nigel eastman images

Laurie continued re a blatant breach of confidence about me by Dafydd in public in Nov 1994 was the ‘subject of legal consideration’. Indeed it was, the law was broken ON THE ADVICE OF THE MDUImage result for medical defence union slogan images and everyone just ignored it. Laurie admits that ‘One outstanding matter relates to Dr Brown’s letter dated 6 Feb 1995 which supports the allegation of admission to medical school being used as a bribe to drop complaints in 1987. Mr Alun Davies has written to you on 28 Oct 1994, 15 Dec 1995 with a copy of Dr Brown’s letter and 9 May 1995 asking for comments on this allegation and has received no reply.’See the source image Gypsy Petulengro had been in action once more, readers will notice that NONE of the dates on Laurie’s letter are consistent!! I will return to my documents to double check, but again and again there are clues everywhere that many of the documents in my files, particularly those relating to responses to complaints, were forged and full of errors.

Among the documents is a handwritten letter re my complaints about Dafydd marked ‘For the attention of Mr Simpson’. No other info is provided, who knows who sent it and who Mr Simpson was. Perhaps it was this Mr Simpson.See the source image

On 3 Jan 1995, ‘Dafydd’ wrote a furious letter to Alun Davies after Dafydd had arrived at the Hergest Unit and seen me sitting on a chair in the foyer, telling Davies ‘I find this completely unacceptable’. The letter was signed pp B.M. Jones. The letter was CC’d to Miss Ball, Hempsons; Mr A.D. White (I have no idea who he is); Medical Director, Gwynedd; Medical Director, Clwyd; R. Hefin Davies (Chairman of Gwynedd Community Health Trust).

I suspect that what Dafydd really found completely unacceptable was my graffiti on a notice stating that Dafydd ‘was a sexually abusing git who should have been struck off years ago’. A copy of the graffitied notice was in my files.

Dafydd also wrote to Tony Francis on 3 Jan 1995 and amidst the details of the Trauma to which F and I were subjecting him re phone calls, used the forever cherished sentence ‘…[a call] ‘to my home when no-one spoke but there was a noise obviously intended to simulate a flatus’.See the source image

The Llangefni police were alerted to the Phantom Raspberry Blower giving Dafydd such a fright Image result for male nurse with elderly patient imagesand the call was traced to a phone box Image result for red phone box images in the Bangor area. Dafydd CC’d his letter about the Phantom Raspberry Blower to Hefin Davies, Ann Ball and Hempsons, John Mullen and the Medical Directors of Gwynedd and Clwyd.

It was in the mid 1990s that the Gang declared war on Graham Day, the Senior Sociologist at Bangor University and sociologist Nerys Patterson, who later married Merfyn, was caught in the crossfire. ‘The Guardian’ published an article libelling Graham, stating that he was a racist and was discriminating against Welsh people when he made appointments. Graham received abuse, grief, telephone calls from journos in London making unfounded accusations and was forever a marked man as far as the Gang were concerned. As was Nerys. Or rather a marked woman. See eg. ‘Badlands’ and ‘Murder In Samarkand’.See the source image

Peter Preston See the source imageand the Gang went back a long way… See previous posts.

On 9 Jan 1995, Peter Cook, ex-Footlights and friend of Zany Graham et al as well as the owner of ‘Private Eye’ for years, died while still in his 50s after some years of heavy drinking and not being as productive as some people thought that he should have been. Cook himself assured everyone that he was quite happy…

On 17 Jan 1995, (but dictated on 12 Jan 1995), Alun Davies sent a letter to John Mullen in response to a letter from Dafydd, that was a real gem, even by Dafydd’s standards. Dafydd had gone absolutely apeshit that Pat Capper, a receptionist at the Hergest Unit, had not Warned Him About Me. What had I done? I had no less had a dream in which I had killed Dafydd. Indeed I had, I remember saying to F ‘Christ I dreamt that we murdered Dafydd and we had to get rid of his body’. (The biggest problem in my dream was what we were to do with Dafydd’s blood. There was a lot of it and I didn’t want it splashing everywhere, so I was wondering how we could store it as they do in hospitals, because of course in Rachub we didn’t have the appropriate equipment etc.) Anyway, there was much taking the piss of ‘Ooh Sally dreamt that she murdered DA’ on the part of the patients and F thought it a truly impressive dream. A Meeting was held and Pat Capper – who had heard about the Dream – was absolutely hung out to dry for Not Warning Dafydd.

Pat Capper had however mentioned the saga to Tony Francis, who told Pat and his colleagues that he would carry out an Emergency Assessment of me at home. What was Tony’s Emergency Assessment? It was him crashing around our back garden in the dark that night, shining his torch into our bedroom window. He didn’t knock, we just heard a rumpus in the garden and saw a flashing torch, so we went out and found Tony. F said ‘Oh it’s Tony, do come in’ and he came in and had a cup of tea. Tony Francis didn’t mention anything about Assessments, he just said that he had wondered if I was OK and was passing, so had called in. His main conversation was about our stonework. We lived in a quarryman’s cottage that had previously endured naff rendering and Brown et al had uncovered the stonework underneath. Tony told us that he had recently purchased a second home at Trefor (on the Llyn Peninsula) and his stonework wasn’t as good as ours. So the Dangerous Patients invited the psychiatrist in for tea and biscuits when we found him in our garden, shining a torch into our bedroom window. We later heard that there had been a conversation at the Hergest on the part of other staff along the lines that it was a good job that we didn’t complain about that or Tony could have been in a lot of trouble…

Tony’s adventures in our garden in the dark was another incident that is logged in my files as having occurred on a number of different dates. Careful reading of Dafydd’s rant and demands for Pat Capper’s head on a platter makes it clear that the chronology is as in the above paragraphs.

Since I blogged about this story in earlier posts, I’ve been told that Tony had been in our garden for hours, that he was a voyeur and have been asked do I remember the patient who claimed that Tony had arrived at her room in the Hergest Unit late at night when she was sectioned and exposed himself to her? Yes, she was denounced as mad by everyone and although she and her parents made a very big fuss, the subsequent Investigation cleared Tony. John Mullen et al declared that Tony wasn’t in the building when the Alleged Incident happened. Furthermore the reason for this young woman’s Delusions About Tony was that her ex-boyfriend was called Tony.See the source image

Police, I am not interested in doing the job that you failed to do for years. There were HUNDREDS of complaints about this lot, HUNDREDS. Image result for red phone box imagesWe were all called liars, mad, criminals and some of us were arrested. If you knew that Tony was doing this sort of thing you should have told us, not arrested us. Why is it that now I’ve begun this blog, I’ve found out that so many people Knew? Tony said and did strange things when I first knew him and I didn’t complain because he lied about it when I challenged him and I couldn’t prove that he was lying.See the source image So I complained about matters that I could prove and I was met with a bunch of gangsters, forged documents, perjury etc. See the source imageI’m fed up with corrupt old tossers who have been embarrassed by this blog asking me to Open My Heart and Tell Everyone What Happened. You were NOT interested before OK and now I’m not interested in wasting my time with hypocrites. It is rather more important that someone finds out who is killing witnesses, including Tony Francis, Michael Mansfield’s daughter, Roger Scruton, Neil Innes etc. Because they are being eliminated…

After the panic re My Dream, Alun Davies had A Meeting with Tony Francis, Madeleine Osborn and Pat Capper. Jeremy Corson ‘was also involved in the discussions’.

Madeleine Osborn was a Consultant Psych at the Hergest who scarpered during the Waterhouse Inquiry. I told her that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and I know that the Empowered Service User who ‘alleged’ that Tony exposed himself to her was then handed over to the ‘care’ of Osborn because the Transference was causing problems. See the source imageThis Empowered Service User observed to me ‘I hate Madeleine Osborn and her bloody fuck-me shoes’. Because of these sort of comments, the Empowered Service User was dismissed as a Madwoman who was Obsessed With Sex. No, it was the STAFF who were obsessed with sex, it was why we were taking the piss out of them re such matters. While the staff ponced around talking about Uninhibited Manic Patients – which can happen – they were running a sex abuse ring that had a sideline in child porn and Class A drugs. The psychology students at Bangor University knew about this lot, THEY were laughing at the depraved old psychiatrists and clinical psychologists, but they didn’t commit their comments to paper as the patients did…

People DID know what this lot were doing, it’s how I have received so much extra info since I began the blog. It’s the oldest trick in the book; because some psych patients sometimes have some delusional beliefs, it is a free-for-all. Anyone can do anything to them and it will be attributed to Delusions. Unless the Gang want to frame a subject of gossip/rumour, then the Empowered ones are led up the garden path by the Gang and all utterances of the Delusional ones are suddenly believable. This was what underpinned the False Memory Row, how does anyone know WHAT and WHO to believe when distressed people are being told lies by people who’s word is taken as the unproblematic Truth or are the subject of lies told by those who are telling the Truth, when the Truth tellers are involved in very serious crime?

Madeleine Osborn was one of the Leaders at the Hergest and when I confronted her and said ‘Do you realise that Dr DA Jones is having sex with patients?’, she looked at me over her glasses and said ‘If I had evidence of that I would be APPALLED’. Then she strutted off in her fuck-me shoes.

Madeleine Frances Osborn is currently registered but without a licence to practice. She qualified at Edinburgh University in 1970. Which puts Madeleine and her fuck-me shoes at the centre of the action; Edinburgh was the location of the big ring facilitated by Dafydd’s mates Prof Henry Walton and Sula Wolff, who became multimillionaire collectors of Art Treasures on their NHS salaries. The ring embraced Tam Paton, manager of the Bay City Rollers and was linked to the rock crowd in Glasgow via Tam Paton’s protégé Midge Ure… The psychoanalysis bit in Edinburgh sprung from Ronald Fairbairn and his circle, Gwynne’s contemporary, father of violent, alcoholic, sex abusing Tory MP and lawyer, Sir Nicholas Fairbairn, one-time bedfellow of Esther and Thatch’s Solicitor General for Scotland.See the source image

Take a long, hard look at the Meaning Of Those Shoes:

Ronald Fairbairn was central figure in the development of the object relations theory of psychoanalysis. Fairbairn’s Psychoanalytical Studies of Personality (1952) is a collection of papers previously published in different reviews. The book is divided into three parts, the first being mostly theoretical, the second one clinical, and the third one concerning more general problems. The first four articles contain the largest body of the most innovative Fairbairn concepts. The table of contents entails:

  • Part One: An Object-Relations Theory of the Personality
  1. Chapter I: Schizoid Factors in the Personality (1940)
  2. Chapter II: A Revised Psychopathology of the Psychoses and Psychoneuroses (1941)
  3. Chapter III: The Repression and the Return of Bad Objects (with special reference to the ‘War Neuroses) (1943)
  4. Chapter IV: Endopsychic Structure Considered in Terms of Object-Relationships (1944)
  5. Chapter V: Object-Relationships and Dynamic Structure (1946)
  6. Chapter VI: Steps in the Development of an Object-Relations Theory of the Personality 1 (1949)
  7. Chapter VII: A Synopsis of the Development of the Author’s Views Regarding the Structure of the Personality (1951) See the source image
  • Part Two: Clinical Papers
  1. Chapter I: Notes on the Religious Phantasies of a Female Patient (1927)
  2. Chapter II: Features in the Analysis of a Patient with a Physical Genital Abnormality (1931)
  3. Chapter III: The Effect of a King’s Death Upon Patients Undergoing Analysis (1936)See the source image
  • Part Three: Miscellaneous Papers
  1. Chapter I: The Sociological Significance of Communism Considered in the Light of Psychoanalysis (1935)
  2. Chapter II: Psychology as a Prescribed and as a Proscribed Subject (1939)
  3. Chapter III: The War Neuroses—Their Nature and Significance (1943)
  4. Chapter IV: The Treatment and Rehabilitation of Sexual Offenders (1946)See the source image

Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpeg

Dafydd’s letter to John Mullen of 21 Dec 1994 following the business of My Dream excels. Dafydd cannot convey his ‘dismay and disbelief’. He reminds Mullen that on 11 Oct 1994, Dafydd experienced a ‘threatening intrusion’ by F and me ‘into my office’ ‘this very disturbing episode which occurred’. Dafydd ‘was appalled to understand Sally was ignored with a possibility that I might have been put in hazard. I had that very morning replied to a letter from Messrs Hempsons Solicitors concerning an injunction application in total ignorance of the events occurring that I replied there was no problem.’

Until I had that Dream about murdering Dafydd!!Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpeg‘It was Dr Osborn at 6 pm which [sic] informed me of the event’. (My Dream.) She of the fuck-me shoes asked Dafydd if he wanted the police involved. ‘I wished them to be informed because they are aware of the menace which [I] poses to me and they are alert to any emergency call that I may make from my home.’

HILARIOUS!! So that’s why dissenters have been sending me transcripts of the piss-taking calls that F and I made to Dafydd, asking me if I remember them! Dafydd’s phone was Monitored Lest I Threaten Him, ready for the MDU and Forensic Experts to swing into action and cart me off to live with Mr Savile. Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpegWhen I realised that someone had recorded our calls, I knew that they would have also recorded all the other calls to Dafydd from Peter Morrison et al, asking Dafydd to rescue them from police stations etc.

Dafydd’s letter continues to grumble about my ‘increased activity’ and the ‘possible menace it caused’. Dafydd was told that Tony Francis would be visiting me later that evening to Assess me. He ended up in the garden and then came in for a cup of tea. ‘It appears that there were doubts raised whether I should be informed at all of this occurrence. [My Dream.] I found this appalling in the light of past events. I would therefore explicitly request that you ascertain what discussion took place as to whether I should be warned or not and who expressed reluctance on this point.’ Dafydd emphasises that My Dream was a ‘situation of potential hazard’ and bangs on at length about his concern that I do not always seem to be accompanied by Clinical Members Of Staff when he is in the building, on occasions he has noted that mere Administrative Members of Staff were accompanying me and this could not have been right. Dafydd CC’d his letter to the Medical Director of the NHS Trust and to the Chairman Of The Unit (whoever that might have been).

So that is what happened when a receptionist heard my friends joking about me dreaming that I’d murdered Dafydd and did not ring Dafydd, the police, Uncle Tom Cobley and all immediately to Report a Dangerous Incident.

This is why the whole of the NHS in north Wales wet themselves in terror as we yelled at them ‘He is shagging the patients you idiots, he has threatened us, he has hit us, he has joked about us having sex with animals, DO SOMETHING ABOUT HIM’.

They just would not investigate any complaints about Dafydd, yet they entertained this utter idiocy from him. Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpegI await the MDU’s explanation… Image result for medical defence union slogan images

On 15 Feb 1995, Sharon Thompson – then Alun Davies’s secretary – on behalf of Alun Davies, sent Dafydd a copy of the letter that Dr Brown, a Lecturer in Psychology at Aston Business School, had written re Dafydd’s attempt to bribe me in Aug 1987.

Brown was unlawfully dismissed from his job at Aston in July 1995, days after Bing Spear and Sir Peter Morrison were found dead.

On 19 Feb 1995, Ronald Fairbairn’s son Nicholas, Esther’s old bedfellow, died of drink as they used to say in Somerset, as opposed to ‘alcohol related causes’. See the source image

On 5 March 1995, Viv Stanshall, friend of Zany Graham, Neil Innes et al – Viv had been diagnosed with manic depression years earlier and had been an in-patient in a psych hospital in the Good Old Days, so had witnessed much – spontaneously combusted at home in bed. Viv was alone in the house at the time.

On 16 March 1995, John Mullen wrote to Dafydd re my complaint of a breach of confidence. Mullen tells Dafydd that he will be ‘most grateful for the information in your latest letter from the MDU’.Image result for medical defence union images

On 7 April 1995, Mullen wrote to Dafydd to tell him that ‘We have allocated funds to improve the personal attack alarm system in the Hergest Unit’. Indeed, Ron Evans the crooked Gwynedd CC solicitor thought up the ruse of £20k being needed to Protect Dafydd From Me, I have the documentation! Dafydd could not produce one scrap of evidence that he was in danger from me or anyone else, but letters flew back and forth about that Brick – the one that the MDU knew was not my doing – and the MDU Demanded That The NHS Protect Their Client.

On 17 June 1995, Gwynne and Dafydd’s old mate David Ennals, one of the Bigguses who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring for decades, died suddenly and unexpectedly of pancreatic cancer. (There were a number of Insider deaths throughout 1995, I’m just mentioning a few in this post.)

On 21 June 1995 I received a letter from Sharon Thompson, on behalf of Alun Davies, that was CC’d to John Mullen, referring to my letter of 14 June 1995 re Dafydd sexually abusing patients. There was no investigation.

My former boss Malcolm Pearce of St George’s was struck off by the GMC in the week of the 21 June 1995. Bodger, Malcolm’s partner in crime re the research fraud, gave evidence against Malcolm and wasn’t even disciplined. No-one dared, Bodger was not just one of the Mr Bigs in the Westminster Paedophile Ring, Bodger was mates with Royal Docs and friends of Royals. Malcolm was kept sweet by finding him a job in a barristers Chambers advising on er medical negligence, See the source imagelest he ever was tempted to grass anyone upSee the source image in return for dosh… The research fraud had been published by the British Journal of Obs and Gynae, a journal of which Bodger was the Editor, in 1994 at the height of the headlines re Peter Howarth’s imprisonment, when the MHAC were refusing to investigate the complaint that F and I made about Dafydd, when the brick was planted and Dafydd rushed off to the MDU and subsequently Liverpool High Court. See ‘Now Then…’See the source image

Malcolm Pearce Trained/worked at Leeds, which was from where the Ysbyty Gwynedd Consultant Gynaecologist Simon Leeson (see previous posts and comments) was working before Simon turned up in Gwynedd in the 1990s. Leeson Qualified at Manchester University in 1984 a la Do Nothing. At Leeds, Leeson worked with some real scumbags, including the Top Doc who gave a glowing reference to a gynaecologist who later starred in a major scandal re numerous botched operations on women; it had been known for years that this Top Doc was dangerous but no-one at Leeds raised concerns. Leeson is very likely to have known Malcolm, because even after Malcolm relocated to St George’s, he was a regular visitor to his old mates in Leeds and was Proud To Be A Northerner in the poncy southern elite circles of St George’s.

Jimmy Shroff, a junior doc in Bodger’s team when I was at St George’s, had previously been a trainee GP in D.G.E. Wood’s practice after Training at Bart’s. Jimmy ended his days – he died youngish of pancreatic cancer, unexpectedly in the summer of 2004 – as a Consultant Obs and Gyae in Leeds. Jimmy’s widow works for the Betsi Board. See previous posts; I have erroneously spelt Jimmy’s name as Schroff in some earlier posts. He was to be precise Jimmy Foden Shroff.

Two Top Docs who worked with Simon Leeson at Ysbyty Gwynedd in 1997/98 did not know their arses from their elbows – I now have documentation to demonstrate this. One was Ashok Damodar Harshey, ‘Associate Specialist’ to Simon. Ashok Qualified at Nagpur University in 1976 and has voluntarily relinquished his registration with the GMC, as has a Sheila Harshey, who qualified at Indore in 1972. A Ravi Harshey who qualified at Nottingham University in 2008 remains on the Medical Register. All Top Docs who read documentation compiled by Harshey knew how clueless and dangerous he was, including Simon, Tony Francis, Dr Lauren and Dr Antony Vaughan. There will have been many more… Mair Martin at the Drug Information Dept consulted by Harshey et al at Ysbyty Gwynedd will also have known how bloody hopeless they were but for some reason Mair wasn’t providing them with the best info that was available at the time. Why was that then Mair?

Previous posts have discussed Old Favourite John Chawner, an Obs and Gynae Consultant who cluttered up Bangor in the Good Old Days, when newborns were abducted from women as a result of collusion with Dafydd and Gwynne – and not just in the case of Unmarried Mothers either – and when all women in north Wales were unlawfully refused NHS terminations for any reason, but were referred on demand by the Top Docs – if of course the women paid – to the Private Abortionist in Chester who was so dangerous that Warnings Were Issued To Students who might end up in his hands (see eg. ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf!). Chawner was in business during the years of Peak Paedophilia and was a colleague of the Obs and Gynae Consultant O.V. Jones, who doubled up as a member of UCNW Council and served as Vice-President of UCNW for some years (see ‘Meet The Gwerin!’). O.V. was busy governing UNCW when Gwynne was sitting in the Student Health Centre and when D.G.E. Wood was putting a great deal of business in the direction of the dangerous Private Abortionist in Chester…

Chawner is now very elderly indeed and has voluntarily relinquished his licence to practice but makes a nuisance of himself whenever possible. His last splash was in 2015 when Chawner and other Retired Top Docs presented a United Front in the Daily Post maintaining that the Ladies Of Gwynedd would not tolerate some new-fangled idea that was being proposed. Chawner, the Ladies of Gwynedd loathed you and your mates, but they didn’t dare speak out in public that you had abducted their babies, forced them into the hands of a dangerous private abortionist, trafficked them into sex work or sexually/physically assaulted them because they lived in an environment in which you and your criminal pals ran north Wales and they knew what would be coming their way – and the way of anyone who dared support them – if they blew the whistle on your charnel house.

Chawner was still working at Ysbyty Gwynedd in 1995 and two of his Accomplices from that era, his Senior Registrars Geraldine McSweeney and David Chui, are at present working as Top Docs. Geraldine, who Qualified at the National University of Ireland in 1983, is currently a Gynae Consultant employed by Hywel Dda Health Board and is based in Carmarthen. David Kwan Chi Chui Qualified at Leicester University in 1984. David stars on the East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust:

Profile: Mr Chui is a Consultant Gynaecologist with over 16 years experience. His subspecialty interest is in Reproductive Medicine including treatments of IVF and other advanced assisted conception therapies.

Professional Memberships:

  • Member of BMA
  • Member of British Fertility Society
  • Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

David sees Private Patients too. He advertises his presence at the Esperance Hospital, Eastbourne and at Longevity Wellness in Monchique on the Algarve as well! So like his old colleague D.G.E. Wood, David’s Gone To The Med. Interestingly enough, although I’m not a globetrotter, I do know Monchique. Back in my days as an Empowered Service User, when Brown used to give/lend F and I the money for cheap off-season holidays, we went to Monchique repeatedly, because in winter it becomes very cheap and it’s warm and there are nice rural bits. We used to go to Monchique during the mid-1990s… The Hergest Unit knew because F and I used to chat to our friends about it and F used to visit the YG pharmacy to stock up on Tablets when we were going away.

If David of the Med wants to let us all know why he never raised concerns about the organised abuse and other criminality facilitated by his colleagues in Gwynedd, a lot of us would be interested to hear the Lame Excuses. Should David Chui wish to send me a pompous letter from the MDU of a How Very Dare You nature, I’d welcome the opportunity to Share Documentation with David, the MDU and anyone else who wishes to go down the How Very Dare You route, because I really do think some answers are needed. 

F liked Portugal so much that he used to tell Tony Francis and Ella that he’d like to live there. It was me who kept saying to F ‘We can’t move to Portugal, we haven’t got heaps of dosh to sustain ourselves in Portugal for the rest of our lives… ‘ Tony Francis, Ella et al knew that F is someone who lives a much riskier existence than me and if he thought that moving to Portugal would be a nice thing to do, he’d do it…See the source image

Malcolm Pearce had a series of wives/partners – as well as all the additional more casual Ugandan discussions – a number of whom were Top Docs and all of whom knew about the very unacceptable activities at St George’s. Malcolm caught Hepatitis when I worked for him and the junior docs were entertained when it was attributed to an ‘unhygienic person’ with whom Malcolm had ‘come into contact’ when he had been to Portugal for the weekend…

Dafydd used to hold Clinics in Yorkshire, in particular at the Queen’s Hotel in Leeds of all places. Savile used to hang out there, it was where his body Lay In State after he died. I found out about Dafydd’s Clinics at the Queen’s Hotel, Leeds in the late 1980s and I took the piss at length. I realised that whatever Dafydd was doing it would not be Holding A Clinic in any mainstream sense, but I didn’t twig as to Savile’s involvement. See the source imageSo a lot of NHS staff in north Wales knew that I knew about the Queen’s Hotel Clinics and I even rang Dafydd when he was there on one occasion. The security services knew that I knew about those Clinics as well.See the source image

On 26 June 1995, John Redwood See the source imagestepped down as Welsh Secretary and was succeeded by David Hunt, the Gang’s very old, loyal friend. Hunt was known to be sleeping in his office during the few days that he served as Welsh Secretary in the summer of 1995, such was the pressure of work and matters that needed to be attended to.

On 5 July 1995, David Hunt’s few days as Welsh Secretary ended and he was succeeded by The Hague. Image result for william hague images Also on 5 July 1995, Virginia Bottomley – a former psychiatric social worker (educated at St Paul’s Girls’ School and the LSE, both establishments favoured by Lord Gnome’s family – who, along with her husband Peter, had numerous links to the Gang dating back years (see previous posts), stood down as Health Secretary and Stephen Dorrell succeeded her in that post. Bottomley had been lurking around in the Dept of Health for years, she had been Minister of State in the Dept, 28 Oct 1989-9 April 1992 and was then appointed Secretary of State. As Minister of State, Virginia was responsible for providing Community Care Facilities for psych patients. She very obviously did not do this… Bottomley’s numerous influential relations include her aunt, Camden Labour big wig Baroness Peggy Jay – mother of Dr Death’s mate Peter Jay, mother-in-law of Margaret, Sunny Jim’s daughter – and wife of Baron Douglas Jay, Richard Crossman’s mate and Labour big wig in Harold Wilson’s era. The Jays and Callaghans were on board with the Gang.Official portrait of Baroness Bottomley of Nettlestone crop 2.jpg

By 5 July 1995, Dafydd had ‘retired’ clutching the contract to provide substance abuse services for north Wales along with an agreement that none of the very serious complaints against him would be followed up. See ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’

In retirement, Dafydd vastly expanded his business and although patients were told that he now had no NHS work at all, in the forthcoming years, most of Dafydd’s ‘private work’ was commissioned by the statutory services, including the NHS. The world was also told that Denbigh had ‘closed down’ in the summer of 1995. It hadn’t, there were still patients there in 2000 and maybe beyond; no-one has ever provided transparent answers to matters Denbigh.

On 5 July 1995, Alun Davies wrote to me, CC’ing the letter to Ella Fisk, re my phone call to Davies on 4 July 1995 asking to meet Davies; Davies told me in his letter that he still hadn’t received replies to his letters to Dafydd re my complaints, so Davies had written to Dr M. Jeffries to ‘expedite matters’.

On 6 July 1995, ‘Alun Davies’ wrote a letter to Dr Jeffries, Medical Director, Clwydian Community Health Trust, but the letter was signed pp S Thompson. (Sharon Thompson, Davies’s secretary.) The letter states that Davies has written to Dafydd several times re my outstanding complaints but has received no response.

Bing Spear died on 9 July 1995. Peter Morrison was found dead in his house on 13 July 1995. Tiny Rowland Passed Over on 25 July 1995. Brown was sacked by Aston University in the same month; he received the letter at the end of July, but offering to pay him until Sept 1995.

On 31 Aug 1995, Alun Davies wrote to Ann Ball of the MDU solicitors Hempsons, at 75 Mosley Street, Manchester, telling Ann that he wanted my files back asap ‘which were sent to you by this office’.

I don’t know whether to flag up the breach of confidence or the thousands of documents that the MDU read – and indeed compiled themselves – that were evidence of such serious crime.Image result for medical defence union slogan images

A letter dated 6 Sept 1995 from Dr Jeremy Corson (then the Medical Director for Gwynedd Community Health Trust) to me confirmed that Clwyd NHS held Dafydd’s contract – people complaining about Dafydd were always bounced between Gwynedd and Clwyd, both refusing to accept responsibility – the letter was CC’d to Jeffries, Mullen and Davies. My complaints were still not dealt with…

On 5 Dec 1995, Sir Charles Evans, Everest Hero, Principal of UCNW, 1958-84 and mate of Gwynne and Dafydd, died.

On 19 Dec 1995, John Mullen wrote to me regarding my complaints. I was not told that ‘silent copies’ of Mullen’s letter had been sent to Dafydd, Jeremy Corson, Alun Davies and a Dr J Gib [rest of name illegible] of the MDU.Image result for medical defence union slogan images

On 17 Jan 1996, John Mullen wrote to me re my letters of 2 Sept 1995 and 21 Dec 1995 in which I had discussed physical assaults on me by NHS staff and sexual harassment from Dafydd. No, there was no investigation, but Mullen CC’d his letter to Alun Davies and sent a ‘silent copy’ to Dafydd…

The names of those refusing to investigate very serious complaints throughout the 1990s remained the same. Jeremy Corson, Robin Holden, Nerys Owen, Hefin Davies, John Mullen, Alun Davies. Keith Thomson and Martin Jones were moving up the ranks from within gathering the dirt on everyone as they went, to become the Dons of the NHS in north Wales post-millennium.

Jeremy David Corson qualified in 1979 from Bristol University. Just like Professor Nigel Eastman of St George’s AND Gray’s Inn, Prof Eastman the International Expert who flies to the US, South Africa etc to provide his Learned Opinion.Image result for professor nigel eastman images Jeremy’s name remains on the GP register and on the Specialist register ie. Public Health. Previous posts have covered Jeremy’s career in some depth; I’m delighted to report that Jeremy is still in Cardiff running his Private Consultancy, Corson Diaz Consulting Ltd, that Jeremy established in June 2001:

Public Health Consultancy and GP Locums for the last 18 years, UK and International. Previously 22 year NHS career including Director of Public Health and Trust Medical Director.

Jeremy will be raking it in providing the locum GPs across Wales in the GP desert that Wales now is, every even vaguely good GP having run screaming in terror as far away as they can because of the activities of Jeremy and all those whom he refused to take action against in the 1990s. The Pink Blancmange is quite happy for Jeremy to consume such a large proportion of the Welsh Gov’ts budget, it is a symbiotic relationship. Corson concealed the crap with which the Pink Blancmange was deeply involved himself and now the wobbly one is FM, Corson gets commissioned! The wobbly one has exactly the same business relationship with Dafydd and Lucille via their charidee CAIS.

And of course Corson knows Biggus Eastman Image result for professor nigel eastman imagesand he knows that Biggus received that letter from Robin Jacobson stating that Dafydd had described me as attractive and seductive, that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and that Jacobson thought that Tony Francis was too. Jacobson also received information that I had Harassed an Eminent GP, who was also ready to supply Springfield with Evidence about me. Who was this eminent GP? D.G.E. Wood, who Qualified at Bristol University some 10 years before Corson and Biggus Eastman, who’s dad was an Eminent Doctor in Bristol.

Oh dear oh dear oh dear, if Jeremy Corson Falls, it’ll be the biggest game of dominoes that British medicine has ever seen… Indeed World Medicine dominoes, Paul Bowden, Bluglass and Biggus are International. But then Gwynne was the Royal Lobotomist.

Neither must we forget another Esteemed St George’s Trained Top Doc and member of Gray’s Inn.See the source image

Corson’s equivalent in Clwyd during those happy years, Dr M. Jeffries, I’m fairly sure is Dr Mervyn Jeffries who has voluntary relinquished his registration. Mervyn must have been as old as the hills, he qualified in 1953 from Dublin. The other possibility is that M. Jeffries was Milton Jeffries, who also qualified in 1953 in Ireland and has voluntarily relinquished his registration. The north Wales mental health services employed a good number of people from Ireland, which is worrying when one considers what the ‘services’ were doing rather than looking after their patients.

In 1995, Hefin Davies, Chair of Gwynedd Community Health Trust, was merely Hefin Davies MBE. By Oct 2004, when Hefin was Chair of the NW Wales NHS Trust, he was Hefin Davies  MBE OStJ JP and Deputy Lieutenant.

John Mullen, CEO of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust, was John Mullen MSc, MHSM, Dip HSM. Yet he didn’t know what to do with a number of letters clearing stating that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and providing dates, venues and circumstances of the offences…Image result for professor nigel eastman imagesSee the source image

Names Of More Witnesses:

A Sharon Price wrote to Alun Davies on 29 Sept 1994, telling him that ‘a call had been received’ from me on 28 Sept 1994, complaining about ‘Bridget treating patients like shit’. Sharon’s letter was CC’d to Rob Evans, who as any fule kno, was managing one of the best Community Mental Health Services in Europe.

Dr Ian Williams, Tony Francis’s SHO, who wrote a letter to Dr Nickson about me on 27 Oct 1994, days before Dafydd obtained his injunction by banging on about a brick that had been planted.

 

At the time of my first meeting with David Mawson -Sep/Oct 1991?? – the meetings took place in Alwyn’s office, me being so Dangerous that Gwynedd Health Authority wouldn’t let me onto their premises – Dr David Mawson DPM FRC Psych was still based in Liverpool, but not Ashworth. He was working as an independent consultant, using the address of the Cunard Building.See the source image

12 Nov 1991 – Mawson wrote to Dr Paul Nickson…

On 17 Dec 1991 Mawson wrote to Tony Francis. Negotiations had begun, kicked off by David Mawson observing that these consultations with a Private Doc like Mawson were costing Gwynedd NHS a fortune and there was no need for it, after all I wasn’t dangerous and Dr Mawson would be happy to advise Francis that I actually had Schizophrenia and could easily be Treated by Francis, if only Gwynedd NHS would stop refusing to treat me. I had been admitted to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Oct/Nov 1991 with serious depression, but that was only because my neighbour had rung the Bethesda GPs and said surely this tale that I was telling about being refused all NHS treatment and arrested if I went on NHS premises couldn’t be true…

OF COURSE IT WASN’T, OOH NO WE NEVER DID!!! NO, NO, THE NHS DOESN’T DO THAT… My neighbour was witnessing the whole mess, so IN FRONT OF MY NEIGHBOUR, the NHS was overcome with Caringness and I was admitted to Ysbyty Gwynedd. David Mawson was MD at a distance but I didn’t realise that another Cunning Plan was underway; See the source imagebeing Paranoid/Suspicious/Criminally Insane and Hostile with Bipolar Disorder/Schizophrenia/Personality Problems/Sometimes Borderline, Image result for paul bowden imagesSee the source imageSee the source image

I believed the Drs Francis when they told me that peace had broken out, apologised for all the High Court cases and assured me that it had all been a terrible misunderstanding.

On 14 Feb 1992, Tony Francis wrote to Mawson, who was by then based at Stockton Hall, Stockton-on-the-Forest, Yorkshire. Stockton Hall is a medium secure psych unit that at present is run by the Priory Group, commissioned by the NHS. Robin Jacobson left Springfield to work for the Priory Group, as did many of his colleagues. Stockton Hall was categorised by the CQC as ‘requiring improvement’. That can only mean that it is dreadful, the CQC consistently under-rates the degree of danger and chaos in ‘services’. Sir Robert Francis QC has sat on the CQC.

Name Of Another Witness: Dr R Kumar, Registrar to Tony Francis, wrote to Nickson about me on 12 May 1992. Dr Kumar was one of the junior docs whom Francis treated dreadfully, Angels used to joke about Francis screaming and yelling at the junior docs. One much-enjoyed anecdote was that of Francis yelling ‘Where’s that bloody house officer?’ and beginning to throw the chairs around, when a little voice piped up saying ‘I have been a registrar for three months now’. Dr Kumar I presume…See the source image

My documents state that my next admission to Ysbyty Gwynedd (with Francis as my Top Doc) was on 25/3/92; I was discharged on 5/5/92. Peace had never really broken out, it was just non-stop aggro, with various NHS staff doing a Good Cop Bad Cop routine and at the same time pursuing their own civil wars with each other.

Previous posts have provided many details and names of the Guilty over the years of me being an Empowered Service User, so I’d like to move onto the names that I have seen on the latest perusal of documents that I haven’t mentioned in previous posts or flagged up as much as I should.

New Name: A letter written to Alun Davies on 8 Dec 1994 from G. Greg?? (signature hard to decipher) of Clwyd NHS states that after Bluglass ignored the Gang’s serious criminality in July 1989 and busied himself with trivia, one of those at the time to whom the matter was Referred for Action was Dr J.L. Williams, CAMC Of Clwyd.

Now for further names on documents compiled under the reign of Keith Thomson as CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust, after I had been assaulted by staff, wrongfully arrested etc. It should be remembered that Sister Hutt was Welsh Gov’t Minister for Health and Social Services, 12 May 1999-2005. The Secretary of State for Wales, 28 July 1999-24 Oct 2002 (throughout the Waterhouse Inquiry and the aftermath) was Paul Murphy; Murphy was succeeded by Peter Hain, 24 Oct 2002-24 Jan 2008.

‘Mary’, Dr Neil Davies’s secretary at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd was mentioned on a note written by Sandra Phillips, Alun Davies’s side-kick, on 21 March 2003.

Caroline Frain (Complaints Manager at NW Wales NHS Trust) wrote to Sandra Phillips on 20 Dec 2002 regarding the letter from my solicitor highlighting the many laws and policies that had been flouted. Frain tells Phillips that ‘Trish [Gaskell, the NW Wales NHS Trust solicitor] reckons we should just send her a copy of the Finance Conduct Policy, even if it isn’t relevant’. My solicitor AND the Mental Health Act Commission had written to Phillips and Thomson and this was the Trust’s idea of addressing such a serious complaint.

Liars who were part of the picture, as demonstrated by my documentation, include Patrick Crossfield, ‘Senior Nurse on call’ on the night that I was assaulted in Hergest by four staff and was stopped from contacting the police. Crossfield was rung and told that I had been assaulted and was asking for the police. The Trust told me and my solicitor throughout that Crossfield was not aware that I had made a complaint of assault. He was, it was his advice not to give me access to a phone to ring the police. Alun Davies wrote to Caroline Frain on 4 Dec 2002, confirming that Crossfield was Senior Nurse on call. Everyone had access to the documents demonstrating this, including Rita Thomas, the Trust’s Claims Co-ordinator, Litigation.

Sheila V. Owen, Assistant Complaints Manager and Secretary to Investigating Officer, Nursing and Quality, wrote a memo to Alun Davies on 3 Jan 2003 and CC’d it to Patricia Gaskell, Caroline Frain, Sandra Phillips. The subject of Owen’s memo was another patient who made a very similar complaint to mine about some of the same people. NHS staff asked each other how I found out about this patient’s complaint and how long I’d known her. The Trust paid her off eventually after she had them bang to rights on so much law-breaking, wrongful arrest etc…

Sue Turner, Administration Officer, Complaints and Deaths, Mental Health Act Commission, wrote a letter to Patricia Gaskell on 14 Jan 2003. The MHAC stopped responding to me as Thomson and Gaskell flouted more and more policies and legislation. The MHAC subsequently told me that they had lost my file; copies of cosy letters between  the MHAC and the NW Wales NHS Trust are in my medical file…

Keith Thomson had written to Sue Turner on 19 Dec 2002 at Maid Marian House, 56 Hounds Gate, Nottingham.

On 10 April 2003, Paramjit Thamu, Administrator, Complaints Unit, MHAC, wrote to Gaskell; Thamu mentions her phone call to Gaskell on 27 March 2003.

E mails dated April 2003 from Caroline Frain to Jeff Pye, Head of Information Management and Technology for the Trust, demonstrate that Jeff Pye had been alerted to an e mail that I had sent to the Complaints Dept re a member of staff on duty that night among the group of those who assaulted me. My e mail had been read by Colin Ashton, Senior Engineer – Web Dept, who took the e mail out of circulation because of the allegation of assault and alerted those higher up the food chain. It was noted that my e mail was sent from my Bangor University e mail address. I’d just begun my PhD.

The Occupational Therapy student who was forced to make a statement to the police about me claiming that I’d threatened him was Michael Williams. Michael had spoken to me on the phone after I was banned from talking to the Hergest Whistleblower; the transcript of the call shows a friendly call, me upset, Michael trying to cheer me up. I was arrested hours later, charged with threatening to kill Alun Davies on 2 Nov 2002 and bail conditions ordered me not to contact Michael, Alun Davies, Alison Parry (the violent Angel who was Taliesin Ward Manager) or Sadie. The signature of Sgt P.L. Jones is on the paperwork. The case was scheduled to be heard by Bangor Magistrates on 11 Nov 2002; it eventually went to the Crown Court, but collapsed on first day of the trial due to the perjury. Michael Williams had left north Wales by then, I never saw him again.

Taliesin Ward staff involved in ‘restraining’ me on 29 Oct 2002 who’s names were kept from me and thus not mentioned in earlier posts include Peter Davies, Mark Colclough, Hannah Roberts, Nicola Griffiths. No-one would give patients their full names and just declared themselves to be ‘nurses’, although on some shifts there weren’t any qualified nurses on duty, it was 100% healthcare assistants (HCAs). The wards were being run illegally and Thomson knew it. All staff knew that patients were being assaulted and that staff were being told to perjure themselves.

Dr Stephen Parry, on 28 Oct 2002, documented that I assaulted a Dr Steven. This probably meant that I had ‘assaulted’ Dr Stephen Parry; the liars and perjurers compiling the records constantly misspelt their own colleagues names, used abbreviations/nicknames etc. Countersigned by Lena Henry (Senior Nurse, Manager of the Hergest) on 30 Oct 2002.

Jane Jones, HCA, on 26 Oct 2002 documented ‘violence’ on my part. Countersigned by Lena Henry on 30 Oct 2002.

Sian Ruth Lloyd, Angel, documented ‘verbal threats and aggression’ on 25 Oct 2002. Countersigned by Alison Parry on 28 Oct 2002 and Lena Henry on 30 Oct 2002.

Gwen Bethan Roberts, HCA, documented ‘verbal abuse and hostile behaviour’ on 25 Oct 2002. Countersigned by Alison Parry on 28 Oct 2002 and Lena Henry 30 Oct 2002.

Michael Davies OT Student (the same person as Michael Williams OT student!) documented ‘verbal violence’ on 24 Oct 2002, but also noted that I was ‘suicidal and light hearted and reflective’. Who on earth was giving Michael Williams/Davies his orders?? No wonder they didn’t even know his name. Michael’s Manager JE ‘Jan’ Roberts countersigned this on 24 Oct 2002. It was further countersigned by Mark Colclough on 25 Oct 2002 and Lena Henry on 30 Oct 2002.

As Lena went through all these ‘incidents’ days later and signed them off, it was documented that the police must now be called. Just to be sure, another incident witnessed by Laurel Knight was signed by Alison Parry on 23 Oct 2002 and countersigned by Nurse Manager Mark Colclough on 25 Oct 2002.

That’ll be the Laurel Knight who began crying when she saw me in Morrisons and asked me not to tell anyone that I’d stopped to chat with her because she was being threatened by NHS Senior Managers.

Dr Antonio Portoles was one of my Victims in one documented incident. Dr Antonio stabbed himself to death in the heart some nine years later, in his bedroom, while his children ate breakfast downstairs. Dr Antonio believed that he had cancer and had been going home to Spain for consultations because he didn’t trust British docs. Kenny Midence, clinical psychologist, told Dr Antonio’s patients that it wasn’t a ‘real suicide’, Dr Antonio was a ‘hypochondriac’. It was probably more accurately described as a murder. At least they couldn’t pin it on me by then.

After the incident with Dr Antonio in 2002 – Alison Parry and others jumped upon me from a height and pinned me to the ground because I was ‘in Dr Antonio’s personal space’ – it was documented that I was arrested for breach of the peace.

Now Then. Paperwork just prior to that is really interesting. On 28 Aug 2002 it was documented that I had committed ‘arson’. The original form documenting my arson was signed by C.J. Jones, who was described as an Acting F grade Angel. Porter Kevin Roberts was mentioned as a witness to my arson. Because I hadn’t committed arson, at a later date, the documentation was altered by Anne Ward (Senior Nurse) and signed on 5 Sept 2002. Anne had put a line through all the previous names and categories of ‘risk’ on the original paperwork, replaced the names with hers and the title Ward Manager and systematically upgraded all the risk categories. ‘Severity of incident’ was amended by Anne from 1 to 4/5; ‘Likelihood’ was amended from 2 to 2/3; ‘Rating’ was amended from 2 to 8-15.

Nice one Anne, preparing the landscape for the forthcoming arrest of me for threatening to kill Alun Davies!!

Dear old Lena Henry countersigned Anne’s forgery on 6 Sept 2002.

My arson was committed when Paul Murphy was Secretary of State for Wales. By the time that documentation was being forged re my arson and other matters, Peter Hain had arrived on duty.

The police were called after my arson, but as the police found that I hadn’t committed arson or indeed committed any offence at all, they refused to arrest me. Just as well that Anne and Lena forged all the documentation after the police refused to play ball. G. Jones and Philip Jones, Fire Officer, also witnessed me not committing arson.

The arson came hot on the heels of my previous crime on 8 July 2002, when I ‘attempted to break down the door of the junior doctors room’. This crime was documented by G. Roberts and Dr Do Nothing Roberts and CC’d to All Junior Doctors, the Hergest Whistleblower, Eifion Williams, Sheena Knowles, Derlwyn Roberts and the Porters.

Sheena Knowles was the highly aggressive Nurse Manager of the Hergest Unit who told me that she had a PhD in Psychology although she didn’t. Sheena Knowles was quite mad – in the words of a polite colleague, ‘seriously ill’ – and on one occasion sized up to hit me. The Hergest Whistleblower saw it coming and got me out of the way… Sheena arrived at work some weeks later, began crying and couldn’t stop and had to be driven home by a colleague. She never returned to work. Lena Henry was then appointed to Sheena’s job! Lena had been a Student Angel at Denbigh in 1986…

Sheena Knowles was bloody awful, but her appointment indicated the scale of the problem even in 2002. No rational person would work at the Hergest and all New Blood a la Knowles, had nervous breakdowns after a few weeks. The only staff who stayed were Of The Gang. No-one else could cope with working with the Gang, they had breakdowns and killed themselves yet there was no Inquiry.

Derlwyn Roberts, I’m fairly sure was the Manager sent in to deal with the Arfon CMHT, in particular Keith Fearns, only Derlwyn went native and joined them. Of course he did, they were gangsters, people either joined them or had breakdowns and were found dead.

The document re the Circulation List after I attempted to break down the door of the junior docs room was signed by Susan J. Owen, Deputy Ward Manager on 7 July 2002. Susan Owen was killed in a car crash soon after I began my blog. Her family Raised Money for the NHS in Susan’s memory. Susan had worked as an Angel at Ysbyty Gwynedd since before the Hergest was built and had witnessed a great deal of crime. Susan Owen was usually much nicer than some we know and love, but on one occasion after Alun Davies had demanded that I be arrested, Susan told the police, in my presence, that I had to pack my bags myself ‘because she accuses nurses of pinching her things’. I have never accused Angels of Pinching My Things, I’ve stated that Angels have been guilty of much else, but I have never accused any Angel of Pinching My Things. Probably because the Angels had far more Things than I did and much more expensive Things as well.

The Circulation List re my attempt to break down the door of the junior docs room signed by the Angel who believed that I accused Angels of Pinching My Things was  drawn up following consultation with Dr Chandron and Dr Chakrabaty, as well as on-call consultant Dr Chesterman. See previous posts for Chesterman, a Forensic Psychiatrist. Chesterman Assessed me in Caernarfon Police Station one night and declared me to Not Be Showing Any Signs Of Depression, although I have never ever met Dr Chesterman in my entire life. But he has met and Assessed me and I have the documentation to demonstrate it. See the source imageGypsy Chesterman has been at the centre of three high profile scandals and miscarriages of justice in various parts of the UK after he gave Expert Evidence, so he’s doing quite well. At one point Gypsy Chesterman held an honorary academic post in the School of Psychology at Bangor University. Gypsy Laurence Paul Chesterman qualified in 1979 at London University and at present is not registered with the GMC ‘for administrative reasons’.

Following the Consultation between Gypsy Chesterman, Chandon and Chakrabaty, it was documented that I was arrested and charged with criminal damage and threatening behaviour. I wasn’t. I was arrested and taken to the police station, where I remained for hours. The police didn’t charge me because the Hergest Unit could not show that I had damaged anything, including the door of the junior docs’ room. Neither had I threatened anyone, so I wasn’t charged with that either. Or if I was, the charges quietly went away as they so often did.

Never mind, there were lots of witnesses, it was recorded that it was all witnessed by HCA Yvonne Lloyd and that was countersigned by Cheryl H.A. Williams on 7 July 2002 and Susan J. Owen on the same date. This documentation was revisited by Anne Ward at a later date and amended as well, bumping up all the risk categories.

It was after this that Chesterman visited and Assessed me in Caernarfon Police Station using his Gypsy ways. The one person who did meet me in Caernarfon Police Station that night was a totally offensive social worker, Barbara Williams, who insulted me, yelled at me when a particularly unpleasant man under arrest began hurling obscene insults at me and I told him to shut up, and also ignored a prisoner who was seriously ill in the station but denied medical help. But then Barbara was ignoring much wrongdoing in my own case. Barbara told the police that I should not be given any medical care, the police refused to arrest me because I hadn’t committed any crimes, so I left the station late at night. I had been made homeless days previously when the Arfon CMHT told my landlady’s sisters that I was a Dangerous Nutter, so I spent a few nights at the Youth Hostel in Ogwen Valley before I found somewhere to live.

Other witnesses names who appear on documentation about me (and indeed other patients who were Hergest patients in Aug 2002), include Elwyn Jones, ‘Senior Nurse on call’ and B.J. Davies. PC Dewi Wyn Thomas is documented as arresting me. Hergest patients tended to like Dewi, we all knew that he was being ordered to arrest us for ridiculous reasons by Top Docs and Angels. On one occasion in Feb 2003 after I ‘disturbed a meeting held by Mrs M. Clarke’, Dewi arrested me, drove me off of Ysbyty Gwynedd premises, let me go on the road outside saying that he was ‘de-arresting me’, but told me not to return to the Hergest Unit because they’d just tell him to arrest me again. Dewi later completed a Masters degree and I bumped into him after I finished my PhD. I asked him if he realised that things were now even worse at the Hergest Unit and he physically scarpered.See the source image

I have found a document stating that on 25-26 Oct 2002, Dafydd rang the Hergest Unit, claiming that I’d rung him from the payphone in the Hergest Unit. Dafydd ‘was fearful for his safety’. The Hergest advised Dafydd to contact the police. It transpired that there was no evidence that I had rung Dafydd from the Hergest payphone, but Dafydd Had Spoken. It might explain the huge efforts that followed to have me charged with any crime possible. Dafydd gave his phone number to the Hergest staff to be passed onto Alun Davies. 01248 371398.Image result for open all hours images

My documentation contains written admissions of staff refusing to identify themselves to patients. On 27 Oct 2002, M Stanley – I think that is Ria (or Rea?) Stanley, the Nurse Manager of the Hergest Unit, documented that there was ‘very low’ staffing levels on Taliesin Ward and that M. Stanley had ‘resorted to desperate measures to secure more staff’. The efforts were unsuccessful, so ‘Steve Edwards will have to cover Taliesin Ward, so there is only emergency cover re the bleep holder’.

Taliesin was the Intensive Care (locked) ward and at the time there were constant complaints of staff aggression and assault – the same staff were named repeatedly – so staff then refused to identify themselves; there were serious mistakes re medication, the ward was dangerous and it was chaos. Keith Thomson and Patricia Gaskell stalled constantly and failed to investigate serious complaints. A number of people wrote to the Secretary of State for Wales,  to which Thomson’s response was that they were ‘attention seekers’.

I have found some particularly interesting documents re my arrest for threatening to kill Alun Davies. Previous posts explained that Alun Davies rang the police some eight or nine times when he was in a meeting with Sister Hutt’s officials – and I think Sister Hutt herself – complaining that I’d told his secretary, over the phone, that he was a fat idiot and demanded my arrest. The police told the Fat Idiot that it would be ridiculous to arrest me for such an offence, so the Fat Idiot then rang the police telling them that I’d threatened to kill him and he was terrified. I was locked in Taliesin at the time, still injured from the Angels not assaulting me, so the Fat Idiot was clearly in immediate danger. Do Nothing released me immediately that my bruises had faded and as I walked through the exit, Do Nothing smugly told me that the police would be arresting me imminently for threats to kill…

My files contain paperwork compiled at Sister Hutt Central on the fateful day, 31 Oct 2002! A 35 page fax was sent about me to Trish Gaskell from Sister Hutt Central, accompanied by a memo timed 2 pm telling Trish that the Fat Idiot would be available on his mobile until 5-45 pm, the number being 079000 51662.Image result for derry irvine images

Christmas Came for the Fat Idiot and Sister Hutt when on 24 Nov 2002, Mr Bridgy Celeb managed to kill Kostadin Yankov, an Oxford University student, after firing him from a medieval catapult. Kostadin sustained serious injuries, was flown to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol but died shortly after arrival. No wonder the charges of me Threatening To Kill didn’t disappear into thin air as everyone believed that they should have done…

The Home Secretary, 8 June 2001-15 Dec 2004:David Blunkett MP Where Next for Welfare.jpg

Mr Bridgy Celeb was interviewed on the TV news after the accident; a friend rang me and told me that I ought to ring him because surely he’ll be in a terrible state. I thought ‘You don’t know Mr Bridgy Celeb’. Anyway she carried on, ooh he’ll be upset, so against my better judgement I rang him. Mr Bridgy Celeb told me that the deceased was ‘a Bulgarian student who didn’t have one living relative in the UK’ and he really didn’t think that anyone would be too worried about that death.

My trial at Mold Crown Court arrived before that of Mr Bridgy Celeb’s at Bristol Crown Court for manslaughter, but the Threats To Kill charges were withdrawn on the first day of the trial and replaced with the lowest category of Public Order Offence. The bent Judge Huw Daniel, old friend of the Gang as was Huw’s dad Prof J.E. Daniel, roared and bellowed with fury when the prosecution told him that the Threats To Kill charges had been withdrawn. Sentencing was adjourned for Psychiatric Reports, which Daniel insisted had to be provided by the Hergest Unit, but the silly fuckers didn’t ever receive the instruction, so when I returned for sentencing Daniel roared and bellowed again but was told that this seemed to the fault of the Hergest Unit not mine, Daniel having threatened to jail me if I did not ‘co-operate with the Hergest Unit’.

So that blew up in the corrupt old bastard’s face. Did anyone actually imagine that Davies et al would be able to carry out the simplest task, even when ordered by Biggus Daniel?

Biggus Daniel sentenced me to the maximum that he could for the very minor offence, over 100 hours community service. He also issued a legally invalid restraining order against me, but no-one dared mention that in Court. Then Daniel told the journos lies about my Victims that the journos faithfully published in the local press. Mr Bridgy Celeb’s case came up at Bristol Crown Court shortly after on 7 May 2004. The Nice Lady Judge Justice Heather Hallett stopped the trial and ordered the jury to acquit, on the grounds that the accident could not have been foreseen. Heather didn’t mention that there had already been a series of accidents with the catapult, one person had broken an arm, another had broken her pelvis and Mr Bridgy Celeb was warned that he could kill someone. He did not long afterwards, but he had the good fortune to know someone who had been at the hands of the Gang for years, he had done deals with people to keep schtum about that back in the days when Zany Python Graham was still alive, then all through the St George’s years and beyond…

So Gypsy Bridgy Celeb was quite right back in Nov 2002, See the source image no-one gave a stuff about a dead Bulgarian student. David Blunkett MP Where Next for Welfare.jpgNot even Sister Hutt. But especially not Heather. See the source image

On 12 June 2003, there had been a change of shift re Lord Chancellor. Derry had clocked off and the next Lord Chancellor – Miranda’s old flatmate in their Wandsworth days – had taken over duties:

Heather: If you don’t mind me saying, now that Gypsy Bridgy Celeb is over 60, you’re the sort of Older Lady whom he might choose to have a fling with if you get my meaning Heather. Gypsy Bridgy Celeb used to boast to his mates that he ‘liked them a bit tarty’. Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpegHaving Shared A Lady With James Hewitt, I’m sure that Gypsy Bridgy Celeb would be delighted to discuss Uganda with a High Court Judge. Particularly one who stopped him from going to prison.

Heather is now Baroness Heather. Of course she is. Anyone remember this graduate of Bristol Medical School?See the source image

Heather Hallett is the daughter of Hugh Victor Dudley Hallett QPM (1919-1991), Assistant Chief Constable and Secretary General of the International Police Association. She was educated at Brockenhurst Grammar School, in the New Forest, and at St Hugh’s College, Oxford. The Baroness is a member of Inner Temple a la the Havers family, Ronald Armstrong-Jones and Mr Thrope. The Baroness is at present Vice-President of the Criminal Division of the Court of Appeal.

Huw Daniel, you have questions to answer you old fool, as does the MDU. Then there’s the other outstanding unresolved matters, including the illegal amending of the PNC immediately after the case re Threats To Kill collapsed to record a conviction for ‘violent disorder’ against my name and the forged certificate of indictment for ‘violent disorder’ found in the possession of Chester Crow Court, the failure of the North Wales Police’s Legal Dept (or indeed anyone else) to deal with this… The failure of every agency in possession of forged/inaccurate documentation re my Criminal Offences to amend the inaccuracies etc. Details are in previous posts.

I’ll wait to hear from Derry and Charlie Falconer then…

More names of witnesses:

19 Sept 2002: Sheena Knowles mentioned Bleep Holder Carol Jones, also a Peter Barry, in relation to my arson.

A Dr Inda chose to sit in a meeting re my arson and criminal damage although she knew that I worked as a teacher at her children’s school. Dr Inda raised concerns that she might meet me at a parents evening. My lawyer raised concerns re Dr Inda’s conflict of interest and breach of confidentiality. Concerns were ignored by the Trust. Virtually every member of staff in the Hergest Unit was invited to the meeting, it was an open invitation to all interested parties. Fearns personally rang the parents of two pupils – who were police officers – to Warn Them about me.

I also Threatened two junior docs, Dr Chandran and Dr Chakraborty (Nice Lady Doc).

A document was compiled on Aug 2002 stating that it was not in my best interests to be given access to my medical files.

9 Oct 2002: I was asking for explanations again; Caroline Frain was told by Sandra Phillips that ‘it will take a while to think up what we’re going to say to her’.

On 30 Sept 2002 Sandra Phillips faxed Gaskell 6 pages FAO ‘Claims Assistant – Legal Services, NW Wales NHS Trust’.

Alun Davies wrote to me on 10 Sept 2002 telling me that I had been granted access to my Denbigh notes (no, they’d withheld those detailing the Cunning Plan cooked up between Superintendent Roberts of Bangor Police Station, Dafydd and Neil Davies to wrongfully arrest and detain me). Once more Alun Davies refused to pursue the matter of Dafydd sexually harassing/exploiting patients, on the grounds that the alleged incidents happened many years ago and have been the subject of prolonged correspondence… Davies had ‘nothing further to say’ on the subject.

One of the assaultive HCAs Michelle Shaw worked for Central Nursing Agency, NW Wales NHS Trust. Shaw worked shifts in the Hergest and at Ysbyty Penrhos Stanley. Michelle Shaw and her partners in crime provided signed statements about their assault on me – I’d Attacked them – on 15 Jan 2003. The assault – or my Attack – occurred on 25 Oct 2002. Keith Thomson simply ignored repeated correspondence about the matter for weeks. Keith Thomson and his successor as CEO of the Trust, Martin Jones (previously the Trust’s Finance Director), were known to rely on agency nurses for the Hergest, who were told that if they ever raised concerns, they’d not be employed again. The agency staff were costing a fortune and there was widespread suspicion that Keith and Martin had a financial interest in the agency.

In Jan 2003, the Assistant Director of Nursing for the NW Wales NHS Trust was Mrs Eleri Hugheston-Roberts. Eleri now seems to work for Anglesey County Council. By Nov 2011, Eleri was the Acting Business Manager of the Gwynedd and Anglesey Local Safeguarding Children Board. Until May 2011, the Welsh Gov’t Minister for Health and Social Services was Edwina Hart; she was succeeded by Lesley Griffiths who Helps The Mums (see ‘History Repeats Itself, First As Tragedy, Second As Farce).

I’ve received info that Eleri bagged her job as the Acting Business Manager after a deal with Edwina, who had ensured that none of my increasingly serious complaints re the constant intimidation, wrongful arrests, unlawful refusal to treat me etc on the part of the NHS in north Wales were being acted upon, although Edwina pretended that they were. The Counsel General for Wales at the time was Carwyn Jones, who subsequently became FM. Yesterday the BBC announced to the world that Carwyn has just been appointed Prof of Law at Aberystwyth University. Carwyn stated that his appointment is a ‘great honour’. Carwyn Jones Alwyn Jones and so many of the local solicitors and barristers who colluded with the Gang or were key members of the Gang – including Sir William Mars-Jones and Lord Elwyn-Jones – were Aber grads. No hard feelings Carwyn, you have a wife and children and you don’t want them to die on any operating tables in the future or find that although the Ah Doctors are wonderful, there’s nothing that they can do a la Nerys. So I’m giving these absolute bastards a kicking, they’ve been after me for decades and all I did was complain about a lobotomist who ran a paedophile ring; I didn’t even complain about the worst aspects of Gwynne’s conduct, just the libel and forged documentation…

In May 2011, Edwina became the Welsh Gov’t Minister for Business, Enterprise, Technology and Science. In that role, Edwina entertained the citizens of Anglesey by providing a business support grant to a man on Anglesey in return for sexual favours from him. Did Ugandan discussions underpin Eleri Hugheston-Roberts’s appointment in any way? I think we should be told.

A Justin Hugheston-Roberts in a barrister of Gray’s Inn who works on the Midland Circuit from Chambers at 3 Temple Gardens.

Dr Varadarajan Srinivasan was a 2002 witness. There is a curious brief scribbled note (undated) among my documents with Dr Srinivasan’s name next to the initials GMC. I suspect that this is a reminder to Gaskell or someone to get on to the GMC to cover arses. Previous posts have discussed how many Docs working for the Trust (including Sadie) were working in roles or at a senior level when they did not fulfil the legal criteria re qualifications; the GMC knew about these cases and colluded. It was likely that Dr Srinivasan should not have been working in his job and that it was feared that I might have found out and be intending to raise the matter, so the GMC were alerted… There were also staff employed by the Trust with serious criminal convictions who had not been CRB checked, it was chaos.

Original nursing notes written on 25 Oct 2002 signed by Alison Parry were scribbled out and rewritten by an unidentified person. The rewrite mentioned Dr Srinivasan and also that I ‘was pounding a glass door with such effort that I [the unknown scribe] was afraid that it would collapse.’ On 15 Jan 2003 Dr Sirinivasan signed a statement maintaining that I had made no complaint of assault to him. No wonder the GMC were alerted…

On 14 Feb 2005, I came across a Top Doc with Traditional Rural Rosy Red Cheeks working in Ysbyty Gwynedd A&E under the name of Dafydd’s son Dr Dyfrig ap Dafydd. Applecheeks treated me – very unusually, at the time I was being met with aggression and threats of arrest when I went near the NHS, that’s why Applecheeks left an impression one me – and signed the records as Dyfrig ap Dafydd. The Doc who treated me and who was wearing Dyfrig’s ID badge was DEFINITELY NOT Dyfrig ap Dafydd! I have no idea who he was, a young Welshman with a north Wales accent, friendly and pleasant, but not Dyfrig. Applecheeks had rosy cheeks, blond hair and was quite tall and well-built. This is Dyfrig as featured on the CAIS website See the source image they were not the same Doc. I think that Applecheeks was much younger than Dyfrig as well. Dyfrig Morgan ap Dafydd is on the Medical Register as having a licence to practice and being on the GP register. Dyfrig works as a GP on Anglesey; he Qualified from Newcastle in 2002, on the manor of Gwynne’s mate Lord John Walton, where anything goes. I wonder if Dyfrig actually passed any exams?? Dyfrig’s wife Tracy, who also Qualified from Newcastle in 2002, is on the Medical Register and is a GP. There is another Dr ap Dafydd on the Medical Register, Derfel Morgan ap Dafydd, who qualified at the University of Wales in 2005 and is listed on the Medical Register as a Clinical Radiologist. One of Dafydd’s kids when he was about 10 had very blond hair. I wonder if Applecheeks is Derfel who was still a student when he was On Shift in YG in Feb 2005 who wanted to earn extra dosh so an arrangement was made with Keith Thomson?

Dr Derfel Morgan ap Dafydd stars on the website of the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, as their Consultant Radiologist and Training Programme Director:

Dr Derfel ap Dafydd is a Consultant Radiologist with a special interest in imaging of the Head & Neck and imaging of the urological system. Dr ap Dafydd obtained  his medical degree at Cardiff University in 2005. As an undergraduate he also obtained a 1st class degree in Medical Genetics. He completed his general physician’s training and MRCP at Bart’s and the Royal London. After concluding his radiology training at Imperial, he obtained further sub-specialty training in oncological imaging at the Royal Marsden. He was appointed as a consultant in 2016 and is now the imaging lead for the Head and Neck unit and Renal unit, and performs ultrasound guided biopsies of the neck and of soft tissue sarcomas. As Training Programme Director, he is the educational lead for the Royal Marsden Radiology Training Programme. He is the principle trial radiologist for the Head and Neck and the Renal research units. Particular areas of active research include intra-oral ultrasound guided Trans-oral Robotic Surgery, Ultrasound guided intra-tumoral injection of Immunotherapy and post radiotherapy MRI evaluation of the prostate and pelvic floor.

 

So Derfel specialises in Brains and Genitalia and has a big interest in computer software. If Derfel is anything to do with Dafydd, that’s quite worrying. Derfel has a heavy internet presence, he’s all over the web; Derfel undertakes much private work and advertises his presence at Chelsea and Kingston-upon-Thames.

Perhaps Dr Pauline Cutting who Led the YG A&E Dept with its crazy, violent, perjuring Angels (see eg. ‘Two Very Dangerous, Dishonest Nurses’) could enlighten us re Applecheeks. Particularly as Applecheeks’s notes about me on 14 May 2005 were written on Official NW Wales NHS Trust/Ysbyty Gwynedd Notepaper with Pauline Cutting’s name printed on it.

Pauline Cutting Qualified at Liverpool University in 1976. Like Dr Chris the Dick Doctor, Pauline has undertaken much charidee work in war-torn countries Abroad. Pauline was congratulated for this on TV by Jimmy Savile. When I met Pauline Cutting I asked her what Savile was like in real life; this was before he died and the Sort Of Truth began to emerge. Pauline told me that he is ‘a very, very odd man, but he is genuine about his charity work’.

There’s a lovely photo online of Pauline and Savile cuddling two Children From The War-Torn Middle East, but one has to pay to use it, so if I post it here it’ll just disappear. In true Gang-style, Pauline began her charidee work and received good media PR at times of crisis for the Gang: Dr. Pauline Cutting, OBE FRCS, … a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons since 1983, Pauline Cutting obtained widespread experience working in hospitals in Liverpool and London. In November 1985, she volunteered to work in a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon…’

So Pauline leapt into the role as Humanitarian Hero as the Gwynne War was underway, I’d begun communicating with the Welsh Office and the first explosion from Tony Francis followed by lies had recently occurred; Mary Wynch’s case had received national media coverage in the summer of 1985.

In April 1987, Pauline’s dad Alan Cutting starred on TV: Press interview with Alan Cutting, father of Pauline Cutting, British surgeon, who has returned to the UK following breaking of a siege by Lebanese Shi’ite Amal gunmen in the Bourj Al-Barajneh Palestinian refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon where she had been trapped for five months.

This interview came hot on the heels of this: Report on a meeting between UK Foreign Secretary, Geoffrey Howe, and Amine Gemayel, President of Lebanon, at the Dorchester Hotel, London. Press interview with Howe and Gemayel’s political advisor…

That’s the Geoffrey Howe, Welsh barrister who had concealed the criminality of the Gang for decades and was a close friend of Ronnie Waterhouse…

So Pauline was on a Party political mission as well as a generally political one. Peter Morrison was Deputy Chairman of the Tory Party, 10 September 1986-11 June 1987.See the source image

On 2 Jan 1988, Pauline’s book was released:

In Feb 1988, I was offered the job with Vincent Marks’s CRC team at Surrey University. Peter Morrison served as Energy Minister with responsibility for Oil, 11 June 1987-23 July 1990.

Pauline starred in the March 1992-March 1993 Granada TV series ‘Extraordinary People’ (see previous posts for details of the friendships between the Gang and big wigs of Granada, in particular Sidney Bernstein):

Series 1 Episode 2 “Return To The Camps” 17 March 1992 Pauline Cutting
Part one of surgeon Dr. Pauline Cutting’s visit to the Lebanon and the Gaza Strip’s Palestinian refugee camps.
Series 1 Episode 3 “Return To Gaza” 24 March 1992 Pauline Cutting
Part two of surgeon Dr. Pauline Cutting’s visit to Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.

Spring 1992: when I was stuck in the psych ward of Ysbyty Gwynedd for weeks making friends with other patients who had been grossly abused by the Humanitarian Hero’s colleagues, including the girl who had been passed around the junior gynaes for sex who arranged her two abortions that followed themselves and the young gay man whom Dafydd was trying to persuade to undergo gender realignment surgery. I had also become friends with F…

Pauline’s mate, UCNW marine geologist Anthony Stewart Gervaise Jones, an RAF Team Mountain Rescue Hero who was always ready with a bit of PR for Pauline et al in the A&E at Bangor, was the unlikely star of Aspel’s ‘This Is Your Life’ in Jan 1993; Tony Jones was filmed with Aspel at the very end of 1992. Tony Jones was an overtly racist South African who enjoyed referring to niggers in the presence of black students and was Bangor’s answer to Ollie Reed, getting drunk with The Lads and having his buttocks tattooed, wrestling naked in mud etc.

Jones was famously unable to cope with girls and women but I never knew whether that was just because he genuinely lived in a world in which the only women were tomboys/sporty or whether something more worrying was at work. Jones’s close relationships with young male students were the subject of gossip, although as Aspel explained ‘he’s like a father to them’. Not if Tony didn’t take a shine to the male students he wasn’t; Tony Jones was famed for his vindictive campaigns against certain students and I knew one student very well who was hounded out of hall (Jones was Senior Warden) for no good reason by Tony Jones. Then there was the time that Tony Jones, ‘for a laugh’, persuaded some of his bent copper friends to wrongfully arrest a student and keep him in the cells overnight before releasing him without charge.

I never knew whether Tony Jones was just odd or whether the more worrying allegations were true; he was undoubtedly friends with a Gang of sex offenders, but after I began my blog I was told that Tony Jones WAS sexually abusing boys… Tony Jones died shortly before I began this blog. Cancer, but Ah his old mates the Doctors – Pauline’s colleagues at Ysbyty Gwynedd – were wonderful…

Tony Jones did enjoy being photographed/starring in the media.

This episode of ‘Extraordinary People’ followed Pauline’s mini-series:

Series 2 Episode 2 “On A Knife Edge” 16 March 1993 Terence Lewis
Heart surgeon Terence Lewis of the Royal London Hospital’s work is followed, as well as the NHS in general.

So Pauline’s adventures were followed by the adventures of Brave Wendy’s colleagues! In the month that F and I were charged after Jackie Brandt told a pack of lies to the police… The Royal London Hospital was pretty much run by the Oil Industry…See the source image

Pauline I’m fairly sure knew Zany Graham Chapman as well, Chapman was mates with the A&E Docs in Bangor in particular. Pauline’s been the stalwart in A&E in Bangor for years now.

My post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’ discussed the ‘Taking Liberties’ programme screened by BBC Two on 5 March 1991,’Who Will Listen To Mary Wynch?’. The producer was Rhonda Evans and the series producer was Elizabeth Clough, who until recently was the partner of Jeremy Paxman.

So the media interest that followed Mary winning her case before the Master Of the Rolls in July 1985 was eclipsed by the Gang’s propaganda.

 

Dave Wood HCA, who was one of those who assaulted me on Taliesin, said in his statement that he’d worked at Hergest for 10 yrs. There were numerous complaints about Wood, in particular from female patients who found Wood in their rooms in the middle of the night. He had previously been obliged to leave a job with children/young people after he flushed one of the kids heads down the bog. For a laugh like. 

Dr Srinivasan qualified in 1996 from Bangalore. He is currently licenced to practice and is on the GP register. Perhaps the GMC could let me know why the Trust needed to have a word with them about Dr S in 2003…

Those who conspired with Keith Thomson not to investigate my complaint after I, once more, tried the Independent Review NHS complaints route, included Lay Reviewers and Lay Advisers, ‘selected from a list approved by the Welsh Govt’. The Independent Review Secretariat Officer was Mrs Margaret Roberts, PO Box 125 Mold. Margaret’s phone number was 0170 411514015; I wasn’t ever given Margaret’s number, but it was given to staff at the NW Wales Trust who were on excellent terms with Independent Margaret. When I first contacted Independent Margaret’s outfit, Lay Reviewer Mr T.N. Davies suggested that before I went down the Formal Route, Mediation (aka local resolution) should be tried. My solicitor and I agreed; previous posts have detailed how the first Mediation (on 7 May 2003) by a Professional Mediator (Steve Hindmarsh), arranged and funded by the Trust, collapsed because all staff refused to attend Mediation – on the advice of Gaskell – except for Do Nothing, who walked out of the Mediation after approx. 3 mins before contributing, refusing to return. The Mediator announced the situation unmediatable. After yet more abuse, aggression etc from the Trust, my lawyer was referred back to Independent Margaret for yet more negotiations. The Lay Reviewer once more suggested Mediation to my lawyer and I. We actually agreed (God we were mugs). Keith Thomson then told us that all staff had refused to co-operate with the Mediation. My lawyer’s jaw hit the floor at this point.

If only I had possession of these documents then, I could have told my lawyer that it was Avril Davies, a member of NW Wales NHS Trust staff, who TOLD THE LAY REVIEWER to advise us to go for mediation… Independent Margaret had ASKED THE TRUST what they wanted to do.

Avril Davies was an old lag, Avril had for decades worked as the Mental Health Act Senior Administrator for Hergest and she was in that role before Hergest was built. It was Avril who knew how flagrantly the Act was being flouted/misused, Avril who told the lies in the face of complaint etc. Re Dafydd’s fuming mentioned above about ‘the intrusion’ of F and I into his office; it starred Avril. F and I had received so much crap and were so fed up of the refusals to investigate Dafydd, that one day when he arrived we followed him into his office and Occupied The Office. Dafydd sat there buzzing his alarm shouting ‘Assistance Assistance, Security Security’ and we were reciting as many of his crimes as we could think of, following each one with ‘BASTARD’. ie. Mary Wynch – BASTARD. Mary Wynch’s Mother – BASTARD. Margaret Richards – BASTARD. We managed to list some six crimes and yelled BASTARD after each one before Avril burst into the Office, shouted at F and me ‘THAT IS ENOUGH, GET OUT NOW’, so we left the office but then began laughing because we wondered which crimes Avril Davies feared that we were going to end up mentioning in public before she shut us up. The police were called and Avril provided a wonderful statement describing how we were ‘towering over Dr Jones’ and he was ‘looking pale and terrified’. Avril also claimed that F had said to me ‘He’s nothing but an old shit’. No, F didn’t say that, it must have been Avril Projecting Her Own Feelings Onto Others (as F subsequently told her), Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpegwhat F did say to me was ‘Come on Sally, he’s an old man looking at his grave, let’s go’.

On 14 Feb 2003 ‘Reet’ aka Rita Thomas, the Trust’s Complaints Co-ordinator, Litigation, documented that Anne Louise Ferguson (lawyer) had advised that if a High Court injunction was ‘needed’ against me, documentary evidence would be required. Ferguson gave the successful example of another patient whom I knew years ago who had a really bad time at the hands of the Gang after daring to complain about Dafydd when he was banged up in Denbigh. This man was in Court as often as I was and there were constant attempts to imprison him. He opted for jury trial on one occasion when the Gang really went in for the kill and cried with joy when they returned a verdict of not guilty and shook hands with every juror. The Daily Post maxed out on the Nutter Who Got Away; well Daily Post, that man was under attack for YEARS from the Gang, they put him through hell. So you go and ask Anne Louise Ferguson  to fess up why they did what they did to him, because I’ve got documentary evidence here.

THEY FITTED HIM UP.

Anne (she’s actually Anne-Louise) can be found on the NHS Wales website:

After Gaskell left her role as NW NHS Trust solicitor, she was appointed to a senior position at the Welsh Risk Pool. The Chief Exec of the Welsh Risk Pool was Gren Kershaw, Gren Kershawformerly the CEO of the North East Wales NHS Trust. Gren arrived in north Wales in 1983, an NHS manager from Leeds, Savile Central.

Reet also consulted Morwen Edwards, ‘out of hours solicitor’ re me on 14 Feb 2003 See the source imageand Kate Elis-Williams was consulted too. Elis-Williams was a member of the NW Wales Trust Board. Elis-Williams ended up as the Finance Director of the Trust and when the NW Wales NHS Trust finally sank and was replaced by the Betsi Board, it was rumoured that the Board members were at each others throats and Elis-Williams knifed all of them. It was alleged that Elis-Williams ran off with what was left of the Trust’s funds. Then Elis-Williams’s son registered for the law degree at Bangor University.

Other witnesses to my Crimes at Ysbyty Gwynedd in Feb 2003 which culminated in PC Dewi Thomas arresting me but who have not previously been named on this blog included a Liz Madine and John Potts.

On 8 Sept 2003 an e mail conversation took place between Gaskell, ‘Trish’ and Reet: Trish e mailed Reet and said ‘I have prepared the letter and disclosures for Kevin to collect, subject to Cenwydd confirming that the letter is OK (will be tomorrow). Please amend if necessary and can you ring Kevin to come and collect the letter and copies – tell him to park properly this time!!!!!’

Reet replied to Trish: ‘I have left a message earlier re Case Ref as he is not available today- I’ll ring him tomorrow with this if that’s OK and yes I will remind him to park properly!! Cheers [At this time, there were constant problems with patients (including me) being subjected to heavy fines if their cars were even parked ay Ysbyty Gwynedd improperly even in a minor way. I found out that not only were Enemies Of The Gang being targeted, but the two parking attendants employed by the Trust were running a racket and pocketing the money, after striking a deal with the Gang to harass Enemies by fining them constantly.]

Trish to Reet ‘re Sally Baker, Police Request’ – Cheers, Jan is copying the documents and if you can print out the letter, I’ll sign it, pending Cenwydd’s approval’ [I don’t know who Cenwydd is, perhaps they could  drop me a line and introduce themselves, having rifled through my undies.] Reet replied with ‘No probs, will do.’

Other names on the documents dated in 2003 include Reet’s colleague Janice Lee-Williams, Claims Legal Assistant, Legal Services.

Hillary Challen, Mental Health Occ Therapist, is named as is Hillary’s colleague June Edwards.

A Dr Oberholzer was consulted about me without my knowledge on 23 Oct 2003. Oberholzer has been the subject of a number of serious complaints and at one point was suspended by the GMC. He returned to work, only to play a central role in the death of an in-patient at the Hergest Unit. The negligence was dreadful, the patient was a popular local man and his parents were interviewed in the media re the possibility of legal action against the NW Wales NHS Trust. It didn’t go anywhere and Wayne Morris was just another Schizophrenic who died in the care of the Hergest Unit. At one point Wayne lived opposite F; it was after they had been neighbours that Wayne’s dead body was found on the railway tracks after he had left Hergest ‘to go for a walk’. Wayne grew up in Birmingham and insisted that he was a witness to a big paedophile ring targeting teenage boys in Birmingham; it was those Delusions that caused Wayne to be diagnosed with Schizophrenia. Wayne was loaded up with anti-psychotics but the Delusions didn’t go away, much to the chagrin of the Hergest staff.

Dawid Johannes Oberholzer Qualified at the University of Pretoria in 1971, although he didn’t obtain his full registration until 1980. Oberholzer is currently in possession of a licence to practice. The three other Oberholzers on the Medical Register all for various reasons to do have licences to practice.

On 23 Sept 2003 Gaskell wrote to Paramjit Thamu at the MHAC and told her that my complaint was being handled under the New Welsh NHS Complaints Procedure!

On 15 Dec 2003, T.N. Davies wrote to my lawyer apologising for the delay but explaining that ‘the Secretariat was endeavouring to engage an independent psychologist to undertake mediation re my complaints… a significant number are of a non-clinical nature. I therefore propose to engage an Independent Senior NHS Trust Administrator to mediate on the particular complaints in order to progress the matter in some way. Mrs Gaskell has agreed to this proposal. The appointed person will meet separately with your client and Trust staff.’

A fax was sent to Gaskell from Margaret but there is no copy of the fax in my files.

Alun Davies wrote Gaskell a letter dated 19 Jan 2004, thanking her for sending him copies of letters from me of 12 and 13 Jan 2004. Davies wrote ‘I am as I am sure you are, rather concerned at the terms of the restraining order imposed by the Court on 5 Jan. [Davies is referring to the legally invalid order issued by Huw Daniel, after the Threats To Kill charge was withdrawn. Daniel issued an order stating that I should be arrested if I entered NHS premises. It was invalid, the whole Court knew this, but I had no legal aid, couldn’t afford a lawyer to fight the nonsense and was by that time fed up with Judges breaking the law in open Court, the Gang being caught perjuring themselves and assaulting me with impunity, so I just thought sod this, one day I’ll publish the lot.] Because of the terms she now obviously feels able to resume her campaign… ‘

I was being harassed, threatened, followed around Bangor, Caernarfon, Llanberis and catcalled by Davies’s sodding henchmen/women, and my medical records were being sent to third parties while colleagues of mine at Bangor University were receiving phone calls from NHS staff telling them that They Knew All About Me And I Was Dangerous, that’s why  my ‘campaign’ continued.

On 5 Feb 2004, Alun Davies wrote to Gaskell demanding that the Top Doc at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd (in the neighbouring NHS Trust, managed by Gren KershawGren Kershaw) should ‘promptly’ return my medical records to the NW Wales NHS Trust for ‘filing’. The NW Wales NHS Trust had refused to treat me, declared me Vexatious yet they demanded the right to keep my files, because in Davies’s opinion ‘in view of the outstanding complaint and outstanding issues as the notes are obviously an important reference point’. Yes and they can pop in and out and remove documents or rewrite them or add a few more forged ones…

Sadly the Top Doc at YGC, Neil Davies, agreed to Alun Davies’s law-breaking and conspiracy but then Neil Davies was fully on board  with Dafydd and had been back in Dec 1986 when I was unlawfully imprisoned in the Bryn Golau Peep Show. When Denbigh closed, Neil Davies relocated to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. I didn’t know that Neil Davies was Dafydd’s paid-up accomplice because the documents written by Neil Davies clearly demonstrating this were unlawfully withheld from me…Gren Kershaw

For much of the time, Alun Davies kept my medical records at home with him; Davies documented this. Just unbelievable.

On 11 Feb 2004, Gaskell wrote to Alun Davies, CC’ing her letter to Tony Jones, Exec Nursing Director and Bethan Nickson, District General Manager. Tony Jones’s PA was Roz Pegler, yet another witness to so much crime. Gaskell thanked Davies for his letter of 6 Feb 2004 and confirmed that she’d written to Anne Louise Ferguson seeking her advice after I had turned down the ‘offer’ of mediation – although Gaskell admits that Sadie and Do Nothing had both refused to attend mediation, so it was fairly obvious why I’d refused to waste my time with it once more – and told Gaskell that I was taking a complaint to the GMC…

On 25 Feb 2004, Keith Thomson declared me to be a Vexatious Complainant and as such would not respond, beyond a simple acknowledgement, to any more complaints from me. Nothing at all had been properly investigated, let alone resolved. The Official Vexatious Complainant’s documentation was completed and signed by Gaskell and Bethan Nickson, District General Manager (Quality and Clinical Assurance) on 24 Feb 2004 and countersigned by Thomson and R.A. Jones, Nursing Director on 25 Feb 2004.

I don’t know Bethan Nickson, but it’s almost certain that she was something to do with Dr Paul Nickson. Nickson’s wife when I knew Nickson in Bethesda in the 1990s was Jenny, but she might have had a different ‘official’ name. I heard years later that Jenny left Paul Nickson and he married again, so Bethan might have been his new partner. I think Nickson’s children were too young to have joined the Gang in a senior capacity by 2004 and I only remember him having a son, Harry.

Gaskell had kickstarted the Vexatious Complainants Procedure on 18 Feb 2004 by sending a request to Invoke The Procedure to Thomson, R.A. Jones and Bethan Nickson. All of whom had very good reasons not to want any complaint of mine investigated. Gren KershawAlthough Gaskell had already on 11 Feb 2004 written to Alun Davies and Sandra Phillips attaching a draft copy of a letter to me classifying me as a Vexatious Complainant.

Sadie Francis was on board as well. She sent an internal memo to David Prichard, Executive Director of the NW Wales NHS Trust on 13 Feb 2004, thanking Prichard for sending her a copy of correspondence addressed to Gaskell re my phone calls and letters from me. ‘I write to inform you that on 9 Feb 2004 I was contacted by the police…I have had no further communication from her [me] since the e mail of 29 Jan 2004 and a telephone call on 2 Feb 2004 which was possibly from her. Thank you to everybody for help in this matter’. The letter was stamped as received by the Trust on 19 Feb 2004 and CCd to Thomson, Gaskell, Alun Davies, Do Nothing.

David Prichard was for years the Clinical Director of Ysbyty Gwynedd/the NW Wales NHS Trust. When I finally obtained my medical records in 2005, there was a note stuck to the top of them signed by Prichard simply saying ‘This patient must be stopped’. Image result for the godfather images

Prichard retired suddenly as I finished my PhD. He left north Wales and no-one knew where he went, which surprised everyone because Prichard had been such a central figure in the North Wales NHS. David Robert Prichard has voluntarily relinquished his registration with the GMC. What a Great Loss to Medicine! Prichard Qualified at Edinburgh University in 1973.See the source imageSee the source image

Why did I e mail and phone Sadie in the midst of the saga? Because she had bumped into me in public, was as friendly as could be, told me that she had heard that I was well on the way with my PhD, asked if I had got back together with Brown or were we just good friends, told me that she had retired and said that she was glad that everything had worked out so well and she was very sorry that it had ended badly with Hergest. THEN Sadie said that she had heard that Brown and I were planning a book on the mental health system and she guessed that ‘we will be in it’. So I wrote her a friendly e mail (dated 30 Jan 2004) when I got home, apologising for ever having thought badly of her and Tony. I then did try to ring them – THEY had given me their home number – and I was only saved from the Trap because when Sadie answered the phone, the recording device that they had wired up was malfunctioning and I heard whirring and whistling and Tony saying in the background ‘Is it her? Is it her? Make sure that thing’s working’. So I hung up…

The copy of the e mail that is in my files and was given to the police is so friendly and chatty AND includes references to Sadie extending the hand of friendship to me, that for the police to be Warning People about me because of that e mail should probably have been a cause for an investigation into conspiracy by itself. My e mail also mentions the terrible problems that F was encountering, although I failed to mention that he had been ABANDONED BY THE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES COMPLETELY AND WASN’T COPING. I sent my e mail to Sadie’s NHS e mail address – she was still doing some locum work – and Sharon, a secretary, forwarded it to Sadie’s own e mail address. So Sharon read the Terrifying E Mail as well…

A Rob Lewis was sent a copy of my e mail to Sadie.

The last contact that I had with Sadie before I bumped into her and then sent her the Terrifying E Mail, was a letter that she had sent me via my lawyer on 2 April 2003 after I notified Keith Thomson that his ‘service’ was too dishonest and dangerous to use and I wanted a referral to another Trust. Sadie wrote to my solicitor saying ‘I should be grateful if you could give Sally my sincere best wishes for her in the future’.

Another witness to the Brewing Of The Plot in Jan 2003 was a Nikki Frandinand (or a similar surname); Nikki sent a fax to my lawyer on behalf of Keith Thomson.

A document simply dated Jan 2004 written by Caroline Frain notes that Gaskell ‘spoke with Alun Davies yesterday regarding SB’s recent letter about there being an orchestrated campaign to try to get her put in prison. Alun denied that there was any orchestrated campaign or that there was the feeding of any info into any channels. He stated that there was no evidence of this. Although he pointed out that there was evidence that staff generally were scared of SB and when they saw her they would complete several incident forms if she approached them or harassed them in any way’.

Freud's couch, London, 2004 (2).jpeg

On 1 March 2004, my solicitor received a letter from Lay Reviewer pp T.N. Davies, stating that unless the Independent Review Secretariat hears directly from me, no further action will be taken. CC’d to Lay Advisor and to CEO NW Wales NHS Trust.

On 24 March 2004 Tony Jones (R.A. Jones, Nursing Director) wrote a note to Gaskell on the matter of Independent Margaret and told Gaskell ‘I have just made one or two minor amendments’.

On 24 March 2004, Independent Margaret wrote to me about my request for an Independent Review re the North East Wales NHS Trust (my request related to the North West Wales NHS Trust, but there are errors everywhere in my files). Independent Margaret thanked me for my letter of 13 March 2004 re my request for an Independent Review with regard to my complaint against the North West Wales NHS Trust and told me that ‘Mr T.N. Davies was the Lay Reviewer considering your original request for an Independent Review and he referred the matter back to the Trust for further local resolution which unfortunately did not prove successful.’ Indeed not, due to 100% non-cooperation from the NW Wales NHS Trust. ‘I have therefore appointed another Lay Reviewer Mr K. Naughton and Mr B. Jones as Lay Adviser to consider your complaint… I enclose a leaflet on how a complaint may be referred to the Ombudsman… I am now seeking your permission that all relevant documentation can be disclosed to the new Lay Reviewer and Lay Adviser. If your complaint contains clinical issues, copies of the same documentation will need to be sent to an Independent Clinical Adviser who will be selected and appointed from the Welsh Assembly Gov’ts approved list…’

I might as well have told Independent Margaret to ask the Windbags, George Carman, Rupert Murdoch or indeed any one of the hundreds of people with whom my medical records, including the lies and the forged bits, had been shared. Independent Margaret gained permission from me to send the records to even more Gossips of the Parish.

An O. Brookes was witness to the lunacy from Independent Margaret et al; on 22 Jan 2004, O. Brookes wrote to my lawyer on behalf of Lay Reviewer T.N. Davies, thanking her for her letter of 20 Jan 2004… My lawyer had written to T. Neil Davies thanking him for his letter of 16 Jan 2004 advising that mediation could now be arranged through Gaskell and asks if T.N. Davies if he could treat this as a matter of urgency. On 16 Jan 2004 T.N. Davies wrote to Gaskell recommending Independent Mediation. Davies CC’d his letter to Richard Jones, Lay Adviser; Thomson and Paramjit Thamu, Admin, Complaints and Deaths Unit, MHAC.

Independent Margaret’s letter continued ‘Please note… free independent support at this next stage of the NHS complaints procedure from your local CHC… the Chief Officer’s name is Mr D.G. Owen and he can be contacted on 01286 674961.’

Previous posts discussed Mr D.G. Owen and his Independent Support. I discovered Glanville Owen sitting in his office in Pepper Row, Caernarfon. He told me that Gwynedd CHC was not responsible for complaints about hospitals. I then found out that it was, so I returned to Glanville and he denied ever having told me that the CHC was not responsible for complaints about hospitals. Glanville was subsequently as obstructive as possible while handling my complaint and after more than a year of utter fuckwittery of Independent Support involving Glanville and his minions, Glanville stated that there was nothing further that he could do to investigate my complaint.

Years later I discovered that Glanville’s previous job had been Deputy Director of Gwynedd Social Services from the mid-1980s onward, with direct responsibility for managing children’s homes. (See eg. ‘I Know Nuzzing…’) Glanville was Lucille’s right hand man. At the Waterhouse Inquiry, Glanville told Ronnie that it was everybody else’s fault, he might have been the Senior Manager responsible for children’s homes but that didn’t mean that he was to blame and anyway he was leaving his job and he wasn’t ever going to work again. Glanville was recycled as Chief Officer for Gwynedd CHC soon after he Gave Evidence to Ronnie. When Gwynedd CHC metamorphosed into the Brand New Betsi Cadwaladr/North Wales CHC, imagine my surprise to find out that one of the members of the New CHC was er Glanville. Glanville was still up and running when Dr Chris the Dick Doctor became Chair of the CHC years after the Waterhouse Inquiry, although Glanville was by then an elderly man equipped with two hearing aids.

Glanville was one of the Ancients from Pwllheli and a graduate of Liverpool University, before completing postgrad work at Nottingham University and then a late career Management Course at Birmingham University, to enable him to be parachuted in as Lucille’s henchman in the mid-1980s when Alison Taylor was blowing the whistle.

Independent Margaret told me in her letter that ‘The Lay Reviewers’ response at this stage is to decide whether an Independent Review Panel should be convened. This is done in consultation with the Lay Adviser and after seeking appropriate clinical advice’.

Independent Margaret’s letter was CC’d to Chief Exec, NW Wales NHS Trust; K. Naughton, Lay Reviewer; B. Jones, Lay Adviser.

See the source image

One of my documents dated 1 March 2004 notes a telephone call from Independent Margaret’s senior colleague Eileen Habbijam re me in which Eileen told an unknown person that ‘neither the Secretariat or the Lay Reviewer should take any further action unless we hear direct from the complainant’. There was also a handwritten unsigned note supplying the names of Independent People, including Abigail Charles, Health Services Ombudsman; Abigail’s phone number is supplied, 029 20 394621.

On 24 March 2004, Independent Margaret also wrote to Keith Thomson telling him of my request for an Independent Review of my complaint. My letter to Independent Margaret’s Independent Secretariat asking for an Independent Review was dated 13 March 2004; it was stamped by the Independent Secretariat on 16 March 2004. The complaints process saga had begun in Oct 2002…

On 13 March 2004 I sent Thomson copies of the letters that I’d sent to the GMC. That was how the GMC found themselves in possession of a forgery purporting to be my letter of complaint about Do Nothing dated 17 July 2003. I must congratulate the GMC, it was a very high quality forgery, but certain clangers gave the game away (see ‘The General Medical Council – And Yet Another Forged Document’). Furthermore the copy of the forged letter held by the GMC was not signed by me or anyone else.

The forged letter from me was compiled months after the Reforming President of the GMC Sir Donald Irvine (who Trained at Durham/Newcastle) stood down, Sir Donald who had given the GMC a damn good shake-up after a series of scandals, the biggest and best being Harold Shipman. After Sir Donald, Standards Had Been Raised and It Could Never Happen Again! The apology to the victims of Harold Shipman was still on the GMC’s website when the GMC refused to investigate my complaints and one of their minions told me on the phone that they were far too busy to waste time with the likes of me.Image result for General Medical Council Logo

I wrote a further letter to the GMC on 6 March 2004. Of course nothing at all was done at any time, although when cars were trying to run me off the road and a gun was waved at me a few years later I e mailed the dear old GMC repeatedly.Image result for General Medical Council Logo

On 31 March 2004 Kenneth Naughton, Lay Reviewer, wrote to me to introduce himself and tell me that he had received my case papers on 25 March 2004 and that ‘I have been selected from a list of independent lay people held by the Welsh Assembly Gov’t and have no connection with any of the parties referred to in the complaint. I will be consulting with another independent person called a Lay Adviser from the same list. I will contact you again once I have had an opportunity to consider the papers and discuss them with the Lay Adviser’. CC’d to Chief Executive NW Wales NHS Trust; Lay Adviser.

On 2 April 2004, Independent Margaret wrote to Keith Thomson, acknowledging his letter of 29 March 2004 and telling Keith ‘I have forwarded a copy to Mrs Eileen Habbijam, Manager of the Independent Review Secretariat in Wales for her attention. I have also copied your letter to Mr K. Naughton, Lay Reviewer and Mr B. Jones, Lay Adviser, for their information’. CC E. Habbijam, K. Naughton, B. Jones.

On 29 Nov 2004, I wrote to Abigail Charles, of the Heath Service Ombudsman’s Office, not knowing that Abigail was on excellent terms with Independent Margaret and the NW Wales NHS Trust.

Another witness’s name is that of Mrs Rhonwen Lloyd Lewis, who’s name appears on a document dated 3 Nov 2004. I have no idea who she is.

Manon Gwilym, Investigating Officer for Litigation and Complaints knows all about the wrongdoing, Keith Thomson wrote to Manon re my ‘lengthy correspondence’ in Oct and Nov 2004.

I was not the only person to notice unsuitable staff employed at the Hergest Unit. Not only was I insulted in Safeways café by Michelle Shaw and her mate Gwen Bethan Roberts AFTER they dumped a whole tray of used crockery on my table and sat next to me, following them entertaining themselves by telling the girl on the till that I was a Nutter (I hadn’t even made a complaint about them, I was having lunch), but on 6 Aug 2004, I saw Hergest HCA Neville screaming and hurling abuse at a customer in Safeways car park because the customer had parked in a disabled space. Neville didn’t need the space himself, he didn’t have domain over the car park, he just yelled abuse at another customer. A group of chavs gathered round and began taking the piss calling their mates over to come and watch this bloke going mad in the car park. Neville was the member of Thomson’s staff who at one point supplied a statement to the police about me, after grabbing hold of my coat and trying to drag me along when he saw me in Tesco…

The conduct of Hergest staff was a matter of wonder openly discussed in the Bangor area. They were unhinged thugs who harassed people in the community when they were off duty.Image result for General Medical Council Logo

On 20 April 2004 Keith Thomson wrote to me telling me that he had disclosed all case notes to me, there were no more. Keith was concealing about 15 box files of my notes, he was forced to hand them over in 2005 or face being imprisoned for contempt by the High Court in Cardiff.

On 20 April 2004, Pat Capper sent a message to Sheila Owen CC’d to Sandra Phillips confirming that ‘all correct, is there anything you want me to do now?’, in response to a communication from Sheila on 20 April 2004 asking Pat to write to me telling me that all case notes had been disclosed to me, there were no more. Someone had even helpfully drafted the reply for Pat.

On 21 April 2004, ‘Sheila’ (perhaps Sheila V. Owen??) sent a 4 page fax to Independent Margaret, with a covering note describing it as an ‘unsigned letter from SB (me) from 2/11/02’. I have no idea what this document was or if it was from me, because there’s no copy provided in my file.

On 21 April 2004 Kenneth Naughton, Lay Reviewer, wrote to me refusing to convene an Independent Professional Review, suggesting that I write to the Health Service Ombudsman for Wales. I did and it was spectacularly unfruitful. The Health Service Ombudsman at the time was Adam Peat, but Adam’s side-kick whom I dealt with, Geraint Jones, was as good as the rude offensive staff of the General Nursing Council who snapped at me down the phone that When Sian Ruth Lloyd’s name had been cleared,See the source image the documentary evidence that I had provided ‘in support of my complaint’ ‘would be destroyed’. See previous posts for details of Rashida Conroy and her team at the General Nursing Council… Geraint Jones the Investigator and Adam Peat’s Office conducted business in a similar manner. Correspondence was ignored for weeks on end, if I phoned Geraint just stalled and when I finally confronted Geraint re the very serious nature of the wrongdoing at the North West Wales NHS Trust, Geraint was so unpleasant and threatening that I only wished that I had recorded the call. Not that it would have mattered, MI5 were bugging my phone, they heard Geraint in action, as well as Rashida and her colleagues. After many, many months I received a letter from Biggus Peat telling me that an investigation into my complaint ‘would not be in the public interest’. Biggus didn’t deny the scale of criminality that had been demonstrated, Gren Kershawhe merely decided that it wasn’t in the public interest to investigate the activities of a scandal ridden Trust with sky-high mortality rates on the part of patients, one of the highest staff sickness rates of any NHS Trust in the UK, huge bills for locum and agency staff and staff regularly topping themselves. It was well into 2005 by the time that the Ombudsman’s Office and I had finished with each other.

Before his appointment as Ombudsman, Adam Peat had previously served as a Welsh Office civil servant. See the source imageAfter his stint as Ombudsman – it was revealed that Adam was only investigating a small proportion of complaints, although one could only approach the Ombudsman if one’s complaint had been deemed serious enough for Keith Thomson et al to have pushed out all boats to blow it out of the water – Adam became the Big Boss of Magna Housing, a huge Housing Association covering much of the West Country. Image result for heather hallett imagesMost online references to Adam disappeared after he starred on this blog.

Geraint outlived Adam in terms of Ombudsmen, Geraint was still in the New Style Ombudsman’s Office recently. The New Style Public Service Ombudsman for Wales, Nick Bennett, is the son-in-law of a Gang member from Anglesey who has been giving loyal service for decades now. There is much dissatisfaction with Nick Bennett as Ombudsman and it has been noted that Nick receives more complaints about the NHS in north Wales than any other matter. See previous posts for details of Adam, Geraint, Nick and Nick’s in-laws.See the source image

On 24 Sept 2015, Geraint, as an Officer of the Ombudsman’s Office, produced a Factsheet for the General Public re Health Inspectorate Wales (HIW). HIW was created in the early years of the millennium and the first CEO was Dr Peter Higson. Higson readers may remember was a psychologist who Trained at UCNW, then spent years as a Research Psychologist at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, before becoming General Manager. Peter then became General Manager of the whole of the metal health services in North Wales before becoming CEO of HIW. Peter Higson failed to investigate my complaints (as well as those of many other people) as General Manager of Denbigh, as Regional Manager of the psychiatric services and as CEO of HIW.

In 2013, Peter was called upon by the Welsh Gov’t to Investigate the Deficits of Merfyn Jones in his capacity as Chairman of the Betsi. Peter wrote a damning Report and Merfyn resigned. Peter Higson was then announced as the new Chairman of the Betsi. Immediately after the announcement, HIW was, it was admitted by the Welsh Gov’t, not fit for purpose. Peter was the only CEO that HIW had ever experienced. Previous posts (and frequent news items) chartered the way in which the Betsi fell over the edge of a cliff in Peter’s safe hands. Not that Peter was ever worried, he was appointed as a governor of Bangor University, continued with his work as Director of Cartrefi Cymru (a housing and support charidee for the learning disabled), continued running his Psychology Consultancy and continued working as an Expert Opinion. For years Peter was a member of the North Wales Health Authority. Peter stood down as Chair of the Betsi not that long ago. Last year Peter was appointed as a member of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority.

Can anyone let me know if Peter Higson is on the GMC yet? Surely such an appointment is only a matter of time See the source imageif it hasn’t happened already. Peter’s sister Dr Ruth Hussey Trained as a Top Doc at Liverpool, Qualifying in 1979, worked as a GP, then specialised in Public Health rising to the Very Top re Public Health in the North West of England. Ruth subsequently spent time as a Gov’t Top Doc in Whitehall at the Dept of Health, only to return to Wales as the Welsh Gov’ts Chief Medical Officer in 2013. Gren KershawRuth was Honoured by Bangor University while her brother sat on the governing body of that institution. Ruth has been held up as a Role Model For Wimmin in Wales. See previous posts eg. ‘Topsy and Tim’ and ‘A Celebration Of Dafydd’s Medical Training’ for further details of Peter and Ruth.

There will surely be fuck-me shoes sported, but I can’t find any full length pics of Ruth. Here’s a pic of Ruth Being Honoured by Swansea University: Image result for dr ruth hussey images

On 28 Sept 2004, Alun Davies wrote In Confidence to Mr S. Atkinson, Child Protection, Dept Education and Science, Mowden Hall, Staindrop Road, Darlington DL3 9BG. Davies thanked Atkinson for his letter of 26 Aug 2004 who had asked Davies for information about my work, having been told by an Unidentified Gossip that I was a Dangerous Mentally Ill Teacher. Davies told Atkinson that his info about me was ‘very limited’ and ‘hearsay’ – that’ll be why Davies and his mates personally rang parents of my pupils, rang my PhD supervisor and sent my medical records to Merfyn the VC, because they just knew so little about me and it was all hearsay – and that ‘Our understanding is that she worked as a teacher in Hillgrove School around 2001 and as a Lecturer at Coleg Menai more recently. She may also between times have worked at a secondary school in the Rhyl area’.

Where was I when Davies sent this info to S. Atkinson? I was doing my PhD in Bangor University, sharing an open plan office with Dee Jones aka Gray, Dee’s two colleagues Esther and Christos (as well as with other people), who were undertaking a Risk Management project in collaboration with NHS Wales. Dee’s partner leading the NHS side of the project was one Patricia Gaskell and Biggus Dickus of the project was Gren Kershaw. Gren KershawTheir Project Meetings were held in our office and the drinks and nibbles would be laid out on the table immediately next to my desk. Trish’s colleague John Bowles, the Risk Manager for Ysbyty Gwynedd, used to leaf through documents on my desk, read the contents on my computer screen etc in order to try to intimidate me. Trish radiated iciness as she walked past me, refusing to even say hello…

One of the secretaries in the Dept in which I did my PhD was Lena Henry’s sister. One of the Profs in the Dept was married to someone who worked at Ysbyty Gwynedd. The Dept also ran an MSc that was popular with er employees of the NW Wales NHS Trust. One morning I arrived for work to find an Angel who had years ago insulted and threatened me having a cup of coffee with my PhD supervisor after dropping in to ask him for advice re the bullying that she had received from her NHS colleagues. Indeed she had, they gave her a terrible time but a gang of sex offenders aren’t very nice really and she’d worked with them since the late 1980s. Gren KershawShe subsequently married Kenny Midence and continued to work for the NHS in Gwynedd. Some of my PhD sessions re IT, stats etc were group sessions with Angels doing degrees at Bangor. Jackie Ehlen was one of them.

I was surrounded by NHS staff from the day that I began my PhD, they suddenly all decided that they wanted advice from my PhD supervisor or to do a postgrad course with him/his colleagues and no, it wasn’t ever me that was rude to them. Their rictus grins were plastered onto their faces as they greeted me. ‘Hello!! I hear that you’re doing a PhD now! Gosh, you have done well!’ Then they’d trot off and tell a few more people that They Know All About Me. The rudest I ever became was after too many comments of ‘Gosh fancy you DOING A PhD!!’ was to simply remind them that once I had walked away and escaped from their fucking criminal, crazy colleagues, I had simply returned to what I had been doing – a PhD – in 1990, before their mates had ruined my life… It was no great mystery.

That’s how little Alun Davies knew about me!

When Steve of the DES wrote to Alun Davies, the Secretary of State for the DES was dear old Charles Clarke. CharlesClarke2014.jpgSee previous posts for info re the Pig Clarke; his dad was a Civil Service Mandarin in the Days Of Gwynne and Charles was Chief of Staff of the Windbag’s Office, Feb 1981-92, when Tony Francis was sending the Windbag’s Office confidential documentation – fact/fiction/fantasy/forged – about me.Image result for general medical council logo images Come on Clarke, fess up, all absolutely unacceptable and furthermore the Windbag never even became PM, because Tony Francis was doing deals with Thatch’s pals in Somerset at the same time. Gren KershawIn Dec 2004, Clarke became Home Secretary and what a mess there was. Clarke was a Hackney Councillor, on the turf of the London Hospital, with Brave Wendy and Gwynne and Dafydd’s other partners in crime facilitating the trafficking ring there.

The letter that Davies received from Steve Atkinson was addressed to the NW Wales NHS Trust, Hafod Las, Llangefni, which was the Anglesey Team’s HQ, an odd address to use. It was the office of Ella Fisk, with whom I was still on good terms.

Steve’s e mail was provided: Stephen.Atkinson@dfes.gsi.gov.uk and his phone number: 0870 0012345  Steve told Davies that the Sec of State CharlesClarke2014.jpghad received a report from the North Wales Police about me following a conviction for pursuing a course of conduct which amounted to harassment [my conviction was for a lesser charge, a Gossip had got it wrong] Image result for general medical council logo imagesand that I had received psychiatric care for approximately 18 years. The DES had to consider action under Sec 142 of the Education Act 2002…

A handwritten addition on Steve’s letter reads ‘open to Kenny Midence, psychology, 2002’. I knew much about Midence but he was never involved with all that Care that I received.

I was touched to note that the DES Logo was ‘Creating Opportunity, Realising Potential, Achieving Excellence.’CharlesClarke2014.jpg

Charles Clarke et al wanted to strike me off the teaching register, me being Dangerous and Mentally Ill, although I demonstrated clearly that porkies had been told about me by er criminals. It was Merfyn’s friend the Philanderer, then a junior Education Minister, who cleared my name. I only worked out that the Philanderer had been the Name In The Frame when he was denounced on BBC News as having let a paedophile remain on the teaching register. I had no idea that the Philanderer was a mate of Merfyn’s, but when I worked out that he was the man who had cleared my name, I wrote to say thank you to him and told him that if the Final Decision had been left to Social Services and Top Docs, I would never have been cleared. I told the Philanderer that I did appreciate my name being cleared, although I was now doing a PhD and looking to an academic career. The Philanderer wrote me a nice letter back, saying that he was glad that things were going better for me, but he didn’t mention that he knew Merfyn.

Shortly after the Philanderer cleared my name, Miranda’s Gov’t announced that Ministers would no longer have any responsibility in assessing the suitability of those with Mental Illnesses re working with Vulnerable People in eg. teaching. The responsibility now lies entirely with a panel of Social Workers, who may take advice from Top Docs. When I heard that I realised that I had experienced a very lucky escape but felt for anyone else in teaching whom the Gang went after. Within a few years, the New Labour Gov’t announced that ALL jobs involving Contact With Vulnerable People – Including Adults – will be subject to the guidance re school teachers. Then it was announced that ALL university lecturing jobs would fall into this category because by definition, ALL university students were now classed as Vulnerable People.

Anyone out there who has ever blown the whistle on organised abuse facilitated by Top Docs and Social Workers? Miranda and Gordon have ensured that you will never work in a professional job again. Take a look at job adverts these days for professional positions; virtually all of them have refence to Vulnerable People, even the most unlikeliest ones. Neither will you be able to work in a low paid job as a care assistant, support worker etc. You’ll be able to get a job as a cleaner, on the tills, in a burger bar etc.

I have a BSc, an MSc, a PGCE and a PhD as well as a good publication list. I am available for dog walking should anyone wish to employ me. I have no regrets at all Miranda and I never ever will. You unleashed a nightmare upon the UK that is now rebounding across the globe. I invite anyone who has ever had trouble with that sodding Gang and their network to use my blog for background info. Lest people fear ‘they’ll pulverise me in Court if I try to take a case against them’, indeed they will try to. But you can take it from me that if you dig, you will uncover lies, bribery, corruption, conspiracy, forged documentation, conflicts of interest, evidence withheld, the lot. If anyone has genuinely told the truth about that lot and has been under attack and smeared, be my guest, go for their jugular, because it is they who are the lying criminals not their victims. But don’t fall for any nonsense about Going For Help to Get Over The Trauma. The well is poisoned, there is no-one in the Helping Professions who will stand up to them without being ruined themselves.

What an irony; I told the Philanderer that things were all OK, because I’d left teaching and begun a PhD. The Gang then moved into Bangor University with me. The Top Docs are now killing them.

On 21 Dec 2004 Rita Thomas, the Trust’s Complaints Co-ordinator, Litigation, received a telephone call from DC Baker of the North Wales Police (phone number 370333 ex 2301) telling her that there was insufficient evidence to charge any staff with offences against me.

On 5 Jan 2005 Kenneth Naughton declared that ‘my concerns were matters for the police and the Trust’s determination to class me as a vexatious complainant was in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Welsh Gov’t.’

Someone else who witnessed so much fuckwittery in Ysbyty Gwynedd whom I remember well was Mrs Gillian Jones, the Trust’s FOI officer. My documents detail Gillian’s letter to me of 14 Jan 2005 re Access To Health Records thanking me for my e mail dated 13 Jan 2005. Mr C. Griffiths, Caldicott/Data Protection Officer, was also party to communications. By the time that I was in touch with Gillian re accessing my files, I was met with lies, more lies and yet more lies, but that was so obviously on the orders of Keith Thomson. When I arranged to meet Gillian to be told the lies made up by Keith Thomson, I was told that I had to be accompanied by PC Dewi Thomas at all times, me being so Dangerous. So I sat in a few meetings with Gillian being told lies while I tried to be polite and ignore the idiocy of the situation. Chit chat with Gillian revealed that she was a graduate of Bangor University who had obviously enjoyed some good Gossips about me. I subsequently found out that like everyone who worked for Keith Thomson, Gillian had been threatened and intimidated, was terrified of Thomson and was desperately looking for another job. I then found Gillian online, networking with other NHS workers on a Gissa Job basis.

Gillian et al knew about the request from the GMC’s Rebecca Townsley, Caseworker, Fitness To Practice Directorate – e mail rtownsley@gmc-uk.org – asking for my medical notes pertaining to my treatment at the Hergest Unit from Jan 2002 until the date of Rebecca’s request. The request was sent to Ysbyty Gwynedd’s Medico-Legal Dept and the notes were requested by 13 Sept 2004. I had signed the consent form to release the records – to be leaked/amended/copied and sent to any interested parties – on 6 March 2004. Of course there was no action taken against any Top Doc. Not even Dr Andy Jones, who was a violent wife beater, caught repeatedly having sex with other members of staff on hospital premises and while he was working as a psychiatrist in the Hergest Unit lost his children to the care of the Social Services on the grounds of extreme neglect and his wife was taken into care for her own safety. Andy had been very violent to a previous partner, who left him and banned him from contacting their son. I knew all about it because for years I lived next door but one to Andy. So he was appointed my Doctor by Sadie Francis when Andy worked as her junior doc after I was sectioned, to ensure that Andy’s story re my Dangerousness was the Official One. Andy was only quietly struck off years later when I told a GP that I had the lowdown on the fate of Andy’s second wife and children…

Andy worked at Hergest alongside another SHO who worked for Sadie, JoeJohn Vattakatuchery. JoeJohn witnessed everything. A Dr Sudhalan’s name is also on my records of 2 July 2002. Dr Babu Hussein was SHO to Sadie in July 2004 and in Nov 2002 was SHO to Do Nothing. Dr Hussein had a habit of quietly appearing on the ward when a patient was about to get a kicking; his presence was appreciated because it stopped the violence. I met Dr Hussein at a later date and asked him why he didn’t grass his colleagues up. He told me that he was a junior overseas doc and Do Nothing and Keith Thomson would have destroyed his career. He will have been right. Dr Hussein is now working as a GP I think and he is a senior doc. Time for Dr Hussein, who seemed so much better than his colleagues, to come forward. Do Nothing and his colleagues were killing people.

Docs more guilty than Dr Hussein include Dr Alwyn Parry, out of hours GP on call on 7 Jan 2003, who refused to treat me after speaking to Andy Jones and Do Nothing. Dr John Morris Jones, out of hours GP on 7 Jan 2003, was told that I was ‘suicidal ++++’ and slammed the phone down on me when I gave my name; documents show that Andy had told Morris Jones had I had ‘set fire to the Hergest Unit on my last admission’ and Do Nothing sent one message if I rang the out of hours GPs: Do Nothing. John Morris Jones is a lay preacher and was the GP in Penygroes. Morris Jones was on duty with GP Dr Karine Oldale who was much nicer than Morris Jones. Karine was the Doc who assessed me as ‘suicidal ++++’ but handed My Case over to Morris Jones and was on her way out of the office when he slammed the phone down on me. Karine was told by Andy not just that I’d set fire to the Hergest, but that I had injunctions  out against me ‘from one consultant psychiatrist, two medical directors and the Arfon CMHT’, and I was not to be treated by anyone. John Morris Jones noted ‘advised to take no action, as known troublemaker’. He went off duty on 8 Jan 2003 at 00-53 am. The message that I was ‘suicidal ++++’ was passed to colleagues at 7-21 am. Even then the advice was ‘Not to follow up’.

Dr Alwyn Parry Qualified at the University of Wales in 1988; Dr John Morris Jones Qualified at Cardiff in 1983. They both Trained at Cardiff when the place was run by George Thomas’s mates and every Top Doc and academic there was concealing organised abuse, as well as that of Gwynne and Dafydd. Most med students at Cardiff dreaded going on placement in north Wales and told each other never to take jobs there. Gren KershawAlwyn Parry and John Morris Jones were highly unusual; whatever could have attracted them to working in a region run by a Gang of murdering old paedophiles?See the source image

Dr Alwyn Parry is a GP at the Llanberis Surgery. That place is notorious, people were going all over the area to escape that practice. I know another person who, like me, gained documentary evidence of serious organised crime at Hergest, only to be called to a meeting with the entire Llanberis practice and told that only one GP there would agree to treat him. This was later denied when the practice was faced with a lawyer. There are also allegations that for years, Llanberis Surgery was involved with massive scams re prescribed drugs.

One of the senior partners at Llanberis is Sonia Maxwell. Her dad was the appalling Terry Maxwell, Clinical Director of the North Wales NHS Trust for years, friend of Gwynne and Dafydd, but one of those who drove Tony Francis to a breakdown; not that Maxwell did it to protect patients, it was a personal feud. Maxwell was a heart-lung specialist and was at the centre of a series of scandals re the wrongdoing of his colleagues, but he never took collective responsibility. See the source imageMaxwell was a Liverpool University graduate and they rang Sonia up and offered her a place to do medicine there ‘because they know her dad’ before she even applied to university. Not that Sonia wanted the place, she went to either the Middlesex a la Gwynne or UCH, a la Bodger. I’ve been told that Sonia has quietly made things difficult for people who supported me; See the source imageshe should be grateful that I’m not a vindictive bitch like her, because one member of her family has massive vulnerabilities because of people like Dafydd don’t they Sonia?

Sonia’s mum was one of the famous Two Old Trollops who provided such entertainment to those of us who lived in the Llandegfan area in the 1980s. How I laughed when I was working at Bangor University years later and someone rang me and told me to go to the Management Centre NOW because one of the Two Old Trollops was in there having coffee ‘and she looks exactly the same as ever’. She did too, it was like Groundhog Day, the same variation on a beehive, the red lipstick and sour look, shiny red sandals that were too dated to even pass as fuck-me shoes…

Both Old Trollops and Terry Maxwell have Passed Over in recent years. Sort of since I began this blog. Terry, loving husband of an Old Trollop.

See previous posts for Maxwell clan information and how Sonia’s sister was the only waitress not to be swindled out of her wages by the landlord and landlady of the Gazelle Hotel on Anglesey, because Terry knew that the ring was in action down there and that the landlord Ken Moulton was flashing at the schoolgirls who were waitressing, so when they tried to fiddle Sonia’s sister, Terry threatened to sue them… When Ken and Barbara Moulton swindled me, Tony Francis told everyone that it was my fault because I was so unpleasant.See the source image

Karine Oldale Qualified at London University in 1994. She is a partner GP in D.G.E. Wood’s old practice in Bangor. Karine arrived in Bangor AFTER all the dreadful media headlines about an alleged paedophile ring operating in the region. See the source imageNorth Wales was obviously the place for Karine, as she filled Wood’s boots. As well as her own no doubt.

John Morris Jones made headlines in 2017 when he announced his Retirement and local celebs – including Hywel Williams, Plaid MP for Arfon and a former psychiatric social worker who originated in Pwllheli and detained people in Denbigh in the Good old Days when Gwynne and Dafydd were busy – were pictured with Vaughan Gething, Welsh Gov’t Health Minister, looking miserable because now that Jones had Retired, there was no Welsh speaking GP in Penygroes. Of course there should be access to be Welsh-speaking GP, most of Penygroes speak Welsh as their first language, but John Morris Jones was so dangerous that the village would be better off with a Foreigner who didn’t leave them to die. After my encounter with him, I enquired about Jones and I was told that he is an absolute bastard and Penygroes was full of people who had lost relatives because of him. No good GPs will work in north Wales because of the presence of John Morris Jones and his mates. See the source imageAnyway, Jones is still on the Medical Register with a licence to practice, so if Hywel Williams MP wants to consult a dangerous sadistic doctor who refuses to treat people in an emergency, then be my guest Hywel, perhaps you can tempt Jones out of retirement if you ask the Pink Blancmange to offer GPs even more than £100k pa and a huge tax free pension pot available at the age of 55. Hywel has a much younger wife and small children and from what I know of Hywel’s wife she’s far too competent to risk her kids’ well-being with Docs like John Morris Jones and I don’t blame her.

A Dr Peter Jones, out of hours GP, on 8 May 2003, noted that there was to be ‘no follow up’ when I rang…

Neither could I gain treatment at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, even once my ‘care’ had been transferred there. As Dr Paul Wright SHO to Dr Neil Davies on 7 Nov 2003 found out. Paul was actually very nice, as was his SHO colleague. After chatting to me, they went off to make arrangements. Dr Wright and his colleague returned looking terrified and told me that they were very sorry, ‘this was not an ideal situation’, but they had been told that the only Doc who could take decisions re me was Do Nothing, although Dr Wright did realise that my care had been transferred to his own boss, Dr Neil Davies. I was told, but very nicely by Dr Wright and his colleague, that I had to leave, because they had been ordered by Do Nothing not to treat me under any circumstances. I explained that I had not had sleep for some 36 hours and they were asking me to drive 30 miles back home. They just looked terrified. See the source imageI drove back home putting myself and everyone else in danger.

This is why there was such a high suicide rate in north west Wales. It really was not Only Me. This was how they treated people and it showed up in the death rates.See the source image Nobody put a stop to it.

 

I don’t know where Gillian Jones and so many of her colleagues are now; if they kept schtum they’ll have reached High Office in the Public Sector. They all knew how serious the criminality of their senior colleagues was and that people were dying. See the source imageWhen Thomson appeared before Cardiff High Court later in 2005 and was threatened with jail for unlawfully withholding my records, his workplace victims knew that they had hit the jackpot.

Awight Gillian! Don’t tell me, a sexually injured corpse was found in Keith Thomson’s swimming pool and ever since it’s been a case of ‘I’m going to tell, I’m going to tell…’ if your promotions and salary rises don’t keep coming.

It was Social Worker D. Owen who took me to Taliesin Ward on 25 Oct 2002…

What was I dealing with throughout these Crazee Days? Among other things, the Ghost of Professor Michael Hutt Past of Guy’s Hospital, a colleague of Uncle Harry, Gwynne and Dafydd’s mates Sex Therapist Jim Watson and Child Psychiatrist Gerard Vaughan and so many more…

Here is the text of an e mail that I sent Jane Hutt on 24 Oct 2019; I have still not received a reply or a reply to subsequent e mails that I have sent to Jane with further information:

Sally Baker baker.sally1@googlemail.com

Thu, Oct 24, 2019, 8:45 AM

to Jane.Hutt
Dear Ms Hutt
Can you please explain why, during your period of service as Health Minister for the Welsh Gov’t, I was: assaulted and injured by four NHS staff whilst detained in a locked ward in the Hergest Unit; denied access to the police to report the assault; arrested and charged myself for ‘threatening to kill’ Alun Davies, the manager of the Hergest Unit, him being in a meeting with your officials in your office when he made numerous calls to the police demanding that I be arrested because of the imminent threat to his life. At least eight NHS staff perjured themselves. The threats to kill charge was withdrawn on the first day of my trial.
While you were Health Minister, I was unlawfully denied access to my medical records. My lawyer subsequently obtained them by summoning the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust before the High Court in Cardiff and among the 10,000 documents released is evidence of serious organised crime, including conspiracy, throughout my many years of dealing with the NHS in Wales and in other regions of the UK. There is also written confirmation that those who repeatedly sectioned me, including when you were Health Minister, were facilitating sexual assaults on patients.
None of my complaints were appropriately investigated at any time.
Should you wish to discuss this with me in person, I would welcome the opportunity, particularly as, so far, the GMC have refused to meet me. So I have had no explanation at all from anyone so far Jane.
After so many years of waiting for answers, I trust that you will reply to this e mail speedily.
regards,
Sally Baker

This Is A Nightmare For All Of Us

As promised in my post ‘A Celebration Of Dafydd’s Medical Training’, I’m going to discuss a few more of the Top Docs who Supported people trafficker Wendy Savage when she Fought The Male Medical Establishment in 1985-86 ie. was the leading lady in the stage-managed 100% rigged Row Between Doctors As To The Management Of Childbirth, that served as a highly effective smokescreen when the police desperately tried to move in on a cartel of corrupt professional people involved with serious organised crime rendered untouchable because of the presence of so many Top Docs and senior lawyers among their ranks.

Wendy and the Top Docs who pretended to Fight Wendy were based at the London Hospital, although a number of them held joint appointments with Bart’s. The employer was Tower Hamlets Health Authority and the corruption was so pervasive and had been in place for so long, that there won’t have been anyone working for Tower Hamlets unaware of what was going on. Everyone in middle management upwards will have been fully on board with the criminal gang that was operating within that Health Authority.

Previous posts have discussed how Wendy was Supported by her old mucker Geoffrey ‘Bodger’ (a rugby nickname, Bodger being a south Walian who dined out on his love for rugby) Chamberlain of St George’s Hospital Medical School. Bodger’s pal Ollie Brooke, the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s, was under investigation by the police when the Male Medical Establishment shafted Wendy. Ollie was convicted of child porn offences and jailed in Dec 1986, on the very day that Dafydd and the Gang unlawfully banged me up in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. Ollie was portrayed in Court and in the media as a sad man, a Medical Genius who had Given So Much who’s life was now in tatters because of a Silly Mistake.

The reality was that Ollie was a key player in a pan-European paedophile ring; he imported, exported and made huge quantities of child porn and he only came under police investigation when a technician went to look for something in Ollie’s office in St George’s and found that every cupboard in there was packed with child porn. A search was conducted of Ollie’s other office and all the cupboards in there were packed with child porn as well. Furthermore Ollie hadn’t conducted any research for years, except for a paper co-authored with his mates from St George’s, published in a journal of which one of their mates was the Editor some two-three weeks before Ollie’s appearance at Kington-upon-Thames Crown Court in Dec 1986.

So the Court was told of the genius of a paediatrician who was found with a few naughty pics and who would never be the same again. Kingston Crown Court and Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane at Ollie’s appeal against sentence (not conviction, because Ollie pleaded guilty) both received literally hundreds of letters from Ollie’s colleagues, many of them from some of the biggest names in Top Doctoring in the world, testifying that Ollie was a great bloke, gosh this is so out of character and Ooh we didn’t know. With a touch of 

It worked like a dream, Ollie’s sentence was reduced at appeal in May 1987, Geoffrey Lane likened Ollie’s role in the international child porn trade as being rather like someone collecting cigarette cards no less and Ollie was freed, certainly by June 1987.

After release, Shamed Ollie who’s Life Was Now In Tatters continued socialising with his old mates at St George’s and even published a few articles with them, including one with Bodger! The timing of those articles were as interesting as that article that was published just before Ollie’s day in Kingston Crown Court in Dec 1986. One was published literally two weeks or so before Bodger offered me a job that sounded wonderful and a small number of articles were published by Ollie et al while I worked at St George’s. The articles stopped when I was forced out of medical research in Jan-Feb 1991. Furthermore, I sat in the tearoom at St George’s and Ollie was discussed in my presence as a ghost of whom no-one had heard since he was jailed more than two years previously. Throughout that time, some of the people with whom I was working were publishing papers with Ollie. Ollie gave his affiliation as the Dept of Paediatrics/Child Health, St George’s Hospital Medical School on each of the papers. The papers were published in high profile Top Docs journals all of whose readers would have known that Ollie had been jailed in Dec 1986. See the source imageSee ‘Too Many Pills’ for the extraordinary publishing history of Ollie and his pals.

Ollie’s appeal was heard in May 1987, but a veil was drawn over exactly when Ollie was released, because this was a most political appeal, there was a General Election scheduled for 11 June 1987… But Ollie was definitely out of jail shortly after Thatch was re-elected.

Thatch’s win in June 1987 defied polls and has been attributed to people being too ashamed to admit that they intended to vote Tory, the Tories being seen as a toxic brand.

I am fairly sure that I know the real explanation. Previous posts have discussed in detail the huge conspiracy by the Gang to frame me for a serious offence and imprison me shortly after the 1987 General Election. My documentation shows that Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities were in on it, so were the North Wales Police, solicitors in north Wales, the Home Office, See the source imageRisley Remand Centre and the Mental Health Act Commission.  It was brilliant, these folk even had the letters typed and ready to send to various people informing them that I was now in Risley having Attempted To Stab A Doctor. I only found that out because Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities and the Mental Health Act Commission didn’t realise that the police had to release me after arrest when it became clear that Top Docs had lied and the pre-prepared letters were sent out as soon as I was hauled off to Bangor Police Station explaining that I was now in Risley Remand Centre, so my complaints could be ignored. Image result for peter higson images

All the leaders of the main British political parties knew about this Cunning Plan and their side-kicks did as well. See the source imageThe foolish old Windbag and Dr Death really believed that they might have a chance of beating Thatch and Plaid were personally friends with the lying bastards who were on the ground in north Wales getting their hands dirty so to speak. Meanwhile the BMA  and their buddies I am sure did what they did when they wanted Heath to win in 1970; they put out the order – but not in public on in the media as they did with Heath in 1970 – to bloody well vote for Thatcher, because I and my friends had the evidence that could bring the Top Docs’ cartel down and Tories in Somerset who knew us and were not well-disposed to us were being used to further shaft us, principally me, but a few of my friends as well. Then Thatch herself would be thrown overboard soon, because the Top Docs hated her, even the Tory Top Docs…

The Cunning Plan had to be amended when the 1987 conspiracy went off at half-cock, but another Cunning Plan was hatched and Geoffrey Howe led the charge later in 1990, assisted by Bodger and the crew from the London medical schools who had me in their clutches because I was working in Bodger’s team by then. Thatch was out in Nov 1990 and my career was wrecked within weeks, as were the careers of two friends who stood by me. 

Fight The Tory Cuts! 

I think that Wedgie Benn missed a few opportunities with regard to that, as did my Posh Relative by marriage, Lord Gnome’s daughter Lord Piercy 1945.jpgPenelope who worked for Wedgie Benn when he was Wilson’s Minister of Technology in the late 1960s.

‘So how will you be voting in June?’ ‘Ooh Somerville of course.’

Dame Janet Vaughan, Principal of Somerville College, Oxford, 1945-67, at the inaugural meeting of the Nuffield Foundation in 1943:


Dame Janet was a Top Doctor who undertook her clinical training at UCH/UCL, as did as did Bodger. Dame Janet grew up in Bristol, the daughter of in a Bloomsbury family, a product of several generations of impressive excess, of ‘Male Love’, of erotic poetry a la Michelangelo and allegations that male members of her circle were Corrupting Choirboys. See ‘A Celebration Of Dafydd’s Medical Training’.

Lord Gnome was a Governor of the Peckham Experiment in 1949, along with Lord Mountbatten, a Person Of Low Morals, the Peckham Experiment being a  sort of project to promote Healthy Living managed and supported by many of the big names in medicine at the time. Gnome also served as Chairman of the Wellcome Trust, 1960-65 and his close female relatives went to Somerville, unless they went to the LSE. So Gnome and Dame Janet no doubt did a bit of nose-rubbing.

 

So, to return to a few more Docs who Supported Brave Wendy in 1985-86 then, as well as Bodger, Tony Jewell and Marion Hall as discussed in previous posts. One Doc who was at the centre of the cartel in Tower Hamlets and will have played a major role in the ring and in the charade that was the Savage Enquiry was the District Medical Officer for Tower Hamlets Health Authority, Jean Richards. Jean Richards was the most senior administrative doc for the Health Authority, but I have not been able to trace her. Like a few others in the middle of this bunfight, including Sir Francis Cumberlege, the then Chairman of Tower Hamlets Health Authority, there is no evidence online that Jean Richards ever existed. But Jean had remained remarkably quiet when the world did know that she existed. See the source image

One Top Doc who was such a Loyal Supporter of Wendy’s that he receives a special thank you in the book of Wendy’s True Story was Luke Zander, who at the time of the Savage Inquiry was Senior Lecturer in General Practice at Tommy’s. Like Jean Richards, Luke seems to have been erased from the web, but Luke definitely existed (he’s starred in previous posts on this blog as well) because there are records of Luke I. Zander’s publications. Luke Zander co-authored (along with many of his colleagues) at least two academic articles in 1986 and 1987 and gave his affiliation as the Dept of General Practice, United Medical and Dental Schools ie. Tommy’s and Guy’s after they merged.

One of Luke’s volumes published in 1981:

An offering from Luke and Bodger, published in 1984, the year that I complained about Gwynne:

Luke Zander contributed to this effort published by Bodger in 1992:

Pregnancy Care in the 1990's: Proceedings of a Symposium at the Royal Society of Medicine, April 1991

Luke was the son of Walter Zander (8 June 1898-7 April 1993), a German-British lawyer, scholar and writer. Walter Zander was Secretary of the British Friends of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem 1944-71, Governor of the University 1972-93 and Senior Associate Fellow at St Antony’s College, Oxford, 1971-88.

The son of a prominent Erfurt lawyer, during World War I, Walter Zander served as a non-commissioned officer in the German Army and was awarded the Iron Cross. After WW II, Zander went on to study law, philosophy and economics in Jena and Berlin. After a brief period as an assistant to one of the leading lawyers in Berlin, Walter set up his own practice in the city. In 1929, Zander took a one-year leave from his practice to study economics at the LSE Lord Piercy 1945.jpgand the Sorbonne University.

Walter Zander married Gretl Magnus in Berlin in 1931 and they had three sons and a daughter. Of Jewish heritage, Zander emigrated with his family to the UK in 1937. Still a German citizen, Zander was interned for ten months as an enemy alien on the Isle of Man during World War II.

Zander’s wife Gretl was the daughter of the famous Top Doc Rudolf Magnus.

Rudolf Magnus (2 September 1873, Brunswick-25 July 1927, Pontresina) was a German pharmacologist and physiologist. He studied medicine, specialising in pharmacology, in Heidelberg, where he became Associate Professor of Pharmacology in 1904. In 1908 Magnus became the first Professor of Pharmacology in Utrecht, where he spent the rest of his working life.

In 1901, while in Germany, Magnus discovered the diuretic effect of the excretions of the pituitary gland. From 1908, Rudolf Magnus worked on the physiology of posture and muscle tension, research that made him world famous. His most famous book, Körperstellung describes the reflexes involved in mammal posture. The Magnus & De Kleijn reflexes are named after Magnus and his colleague Adriaan de Kleijn (1883–1949) ie. the head and neck reflexes of mammals that cause the body to follow automatically when the head moves. Magnus also researched the reflexes of the intestines and phenomena such as motion sickness.

The pharmacological research of Rudolf Magnus was focussed on the effect of medication on the heart, blood vessels, lungs and the gastrointestinal tract. Thus he studied the effects of narcotics, as well as poison gasses on the lungs. Magnus conducted the poison gas study during World War I when he served as an army doctor in Germany.

Note for the uninitiated: Magnus’s research will have involved much cruelty to animals as well as people.

Magnus was very fond of ice skating and would give his whole laboratory staff time off when the temperature was below freezing.

Originally the Pharmacology Dept in Utrecht was housed in an old hospital for victims of the plague (built in 1567). Magnus convinced the Rockefeller Foundation to give him the money to build a new laboratory. In 1926, Magnus laid the first stone for this new institute in Utrecht on the Vondellaan, named Nieuw Leeuwenbergh. In 1968, David de Wied renamed the building the Rudolf Magnus Institute. Due to his death in 1927 Rudolf Magnus never worked there himself.

The Rudolf Magnus Institute for Neuroscience still exists and is one of the research institutes of the University Medical Center Utrecht, where neuroscientific research is performed. The Anatomical Museum in Utrecht houses Rudolf Magnus’ archive.

Magnus had five children: Karl (1903-1989), a lung specialist; Walter Zander’s wife Margarete (Gretl) (1905-1968), who worked as his secretary and translator; Dorothea who died aged 11; Erica (1909-1991), an architect; and Otto (1913-2014), a neurologist.

Walter Zander died in April 1993. Readers may remember from previous posts that there was quite a rush to Pass Over To The Other Side on the part of witnesses to the wrongdoing of the Gang at about that time. Dame Janet Vaughan died on 9 Jan 1993 and Lord Kenyon, who along with his son Thomas, had certain tastes that Thomas at least satisfied by using services provided by Dafydd and Gwynne died in May 1993. Thomas died from AIDS earlier in 1993 but no-one will admit exactly when.

In April 1993, F and I were in the process of being charged and committed for trial later on in 1993 after Jackie Brandt the Gwynedd social worker told the police yet another pack of lies about us.

 

This is the biography issued after Walter Zander’s death:

WALTER ZANDER, lawyer and scholar, died on 7 April, aged 94. His father had been a lawyer. His mother, a gifted amateur painter and sculptor, perished in the Holocaust.

Born in 1898 in Erfurt, Germany, his life spanned the whole of this century and its immense changes, in some of which he was himself deeply involved. In particular, for decades and until the end of his life he worked and wrote on political, religious and legal developments in the Middle East.

As a student he read classics at Jena University, but he was soon conscripted and fought in the First World War on both the Eastern and the Western Fronts. He won the Iron Cross for gallantry in action. After the war he studied law and started a law practice in Berlin. Music was always a central part of his life. In his youth he studied at the Conservatory in Erfurt. He was at the time of his death almost certainly the last person alive to have played under Arthur Nikisch, legendary conductor of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and friend of Brahms. All four members of his Berlin student quartet immigrated to England and continued to play together for decades.

His scholarly impulses were always evident. Early in his professional career he took time off his legal practice to study economics at the London School of Economics. In the early 1930s he wrote several articles and pamphlets on monetary policy. In 1930, he married Gretl Magnus, daughter of the well-known physiologist Rudolf Magnus. She shared and nurtured his love of family and community life. They started their family in Berlin, but by 1937, as a result of the Nazi persecution, they immigrated to England with their three young children, Michael, Luke and Angelica. Benjamin, their fourth child, was born in 1939.

In 1944, Walter Zander became Secretary of the British Friends of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, a job he held for 27 years and which he expanded far beyond its original role of fund-raising. In particular, seeing the importance for Israel of developing strong external cultural and political links, he took the lead in fostering and developing Asian and African studies at the University. On his retirement as Secretary of the Friends he became a Governor of the University.

One of his principal concerns over years was the attitude of Israel toward the Arabs. In 1948, his pamphlet ‘Is this the Way?’ addressed the problem of both securing the new State of Israel and making proper arrangements, including compensation, for the indigenous Palestinian population. Leo Baeck, former Chief Rabbi of Berlin, commenting on the pamphlet, wrote: ‘I was time and again moved by the courage, the straightforwardness, and the accuracy of your arguments.’ The pamphlet led to an invitation from Mahatma Gandhi to participate as the only Jew in a conference on world conflict situations held in India.

Mahatma with Persons Of Low Morals:

In 1972, at the age of 72, he retired from the Friends, as he said ‘to devote his remaining years to study’.

Principally through his close friend for more than fifty years, the Arab scholar the late Albert Hourani, he became Senior Associate Fellow of St Anthony’s College, attached to the Middle East Centre. The connection with St Anthony’s in his seventies and eighties was for him the culmination of his intellectual life.

The Warden of St Anthony’s, 1968-87, was Sir Albert Raymond Maillard Carr FBA FRHS FRSL (11 April 1919-19 April 2015), an historian specialising in the history of Spain, Latin America and Sweden.

Raymond Carr was born on 11 April 1919 in Bath, Somerset and was educated at Brockenhurst School, in the New Forest, Hampshire. Carr then studied at Christ Church, Oxford. Carr was briefly a lecturer at UCL, 1945–46, before returning to Oxford as a Fellow of All Souls College, 1946–53. Carr was next a Fellow of New College, 1953–64, then Director of Oxford’s Latin American Centre, 1964–1968 and Oxford University’s Professor of the History of Latin America, 1967–68.

New College, Oxford was a recruiting ground for the British security services and Richard Crossman studied there and worked at New College as a don before he was elected as the Labour MP for Coventry in 1945. It was when Wedgie Benn was at New College that Crossman recruited Wedgie Benn into the security services… 

Don’t worry about it Wedgie Benn, you didn’t quite manage to achieve that, your loyalty to a Gang of sex offenders and the Ladies Of Somerville who were Of The Right Set took priority. Wedgie Benn showed a high degree of class loyalty, his family were aristos and his dad was an MP when the Posh really knew how to Swing, Bertrand and Bloomsbury-style. 

Raymond Carr became a Fellow of St Antony’s College, Oxford, in 1964, Sub-Warden of the College in 1966 and Warden in 1968, a position he held until his retirement in 1987. After his retirement from Oxford, Carr was King Juan Carlos Professor of Spanish History at New York University in 1992.

Carr’s successor as Warden of St Antony’s was LSE’s Mr Big, Lord Ralf Dahrendorf. Dahrendorf described Carr’s tenure of the post as Warden as the College’s ‘Fiesta days’. Well I’m appalled, to think that Sir Raymond was busy with ‘Readers Wives’ instead of the Finer Things…

A Fellow of the British Academy since 1978, in 1983 Carr was awarded the Order of Alfonso X el Sabio by King Juan Carlos of Spain and in 1999 the Prince of Asturias Award for Social Sciences.

Carr wrote for The Spectator in 2007 – “I am old-fashioned and aged enough to believe that the best history is the work of the lone individual.” His recreation was fox hunting, about which he wrote two books, English Fox Hunting: A History (1976), a comprehensive history of fox-hunting from medieval times, and, with his wife Sara Carr, Fox-Hunting (1982).

Raymond Carr was also:

  • Member of the National Theatre Board, 1968–1977
  • Chairman of the Society for Latin American Studies, 1966–1968
  • Corresponding Member of the Spain’s Royal Academy of History (Real Academia de la Historia), Madrid.

In 1950, Carr married Sara Ann Mary Strickland, daughter of Algernon Walter Strickland and of Lady Mary Pamela Madeline Sibell Charteris. Sara Strickland’s maternal grandfather was Hugo Charteris, 11th Earl of Wemyss, and one of her great-grandfathers was Percy Wyndham (1835–1911), a Conservative politician who was one of The Souls.

Hugo Richard Charteris, 11th Earl of Wemyss and 7th Earl of March DL (25 August 1857-12 July 1937), styled Lord Elcho from 1883 to 1914, was a Scottish Conservative politician. He was the fifth but eldest surviving son of The 10th Earl of Wemyss and his wife, Lady Anne Frederica Anson. His sister, Evelyn Charteris, was married to The 4th Viscount de Vesci; their only child (Mary Gertrude Vesey) was the second wife of Aubrey Herbert (second son of The 4th Earl of Carnarvon), whose daughter Laura Herbert married the writer Evelyn Waugh and was the mother of Auberon Waugh.

Bron was of course a journo and satirist of a right wing bent who lived at Combe Florey near Taunton when I lived in Somerset. Bron took the piss out of Mr Thrope and those we know and love but his loyalty to his traditional circle prevailed, although he did make it known that Evelyn wasn’t up to much as a dad. Bron was a ‘Private Eye’ regular and he knew about Peter Morrison, Dafydd, Gwynne et al when he appeared on ‘Question Time’ saying that Thatch was a force for good. Bron lived in Edward du Cann’s constituency, near du Cann. I imagine that as with Thatch, Bron couldn’t bear to dissent. Or he might have just been terrified, this lot murdered people and du Cann’s mate Tiny Rowland owned everything.

When I was in the first year at UCNW, I used to pop over to Plas Gwyn, a neighbouring hall of residence, to visit my friends Phil and Hugh. I had no idea that we were all under surveillance but one day we were talking Ridiculous Degrees of Capitalism and I said to Hugh and Phil that as far as I could see, Tiny Rowland owned the whole world. I didn’t know at the time that Tiny Rowland was a mate and business partner of Edward du Cann, who was a mate of the Gang that ran UCNW. Within a few years of us graduating, Phil’s career in research had been wrecked and Hugh was severely disabled – virtually completely paralysed – with a neurological condition. Ah the doctors did their best but ooh it’s a serious problem.

Hugo Charteris’s father was the eldest son, and heir, of The 9th Earl of Wemyss (and 5th Earl of March). His mother was a daughter of The 1st Earl of Lichfield (and 2nd Viscount Anson).

Hugo entered Parliament for Haddingtonshire in 1883 (succeeding his father), but lost his seat in the 1885 General Election. He returned to the House of Commons in the 1886 General Election as one of two representatives for Ipswich, a seat he held until 1895. Hugo succeeded his father in the two earldoms in 1914 and served as Lord-Lieutenant of Haddingtonshire, 1918-37

In 1883, Hugo married Mary Constance Wyndham (1862–1937), daughter of the Hon. Percy Scawen Wyndham and sister of George Wyndham. They were both two of the original members of The Souls. His married life was detailed in the book The Wild Wyndhams by Claudia Renton. Among their children were:

Captain Hugo Francis Charteris, Lord Elcho (1884–1916), killed in action during the Great War, whilst serving with the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars. He married Lady Violet Catherine Manners, the daughter of Henry Manners, 8th Duke of Rutland, in 1911.

  • The Hon. Guy Lawrence Charteris (1886–1967).
  • Lady Cynthia Mary Evelyn Charteris (1887–1960), a writer who married Herbert Asquith (1881–1947), son of the Liberal PM H. H. Asquith.
  • The Hon. Colin Charteris (1889–1892), who died young.
  • Lady Mary Pamela Madeline Sibell Charteris (1895–1991), who married married Capt. Algernon Walter Strickland (1891–1938), son of Algernon Henry Peter Strickland, in 1915. After his death, she married Maj. John George Lyon, son of John Stewart Lyon, 4th of Kirkmichael, in 1943.
  • Second Lieutenant The Hon. Yvo Alan Charteris (1896–1915), also killed in action during the Great War.
  • Lady Irene Corona Charteris (1902–1989), who married Ivor Windsor-Clive, 2nd Earl of Plymouth (1889–1943).
  • By 1912, Lady Angela Forbes was Hugo’s mistress, sharing his house in East Lothian, while his wife lived at Stanway in Gloucestershire. Although Hugo and his mistress lived together for many years, he remained married, and his wife became Countess of Wemyss when he inherited the earldom. She died in April 1937, aged 74. Lord Wemyss survived her by three months and died in July of the same year, aged 79.

Lord Wemyss was succeeded in his titles by his grandson David; his sons, Captain Hugo Francis Charteris and Lt Yvo Alan Charteris having been killed in action during the First World War. Hugo’s second son was Martin Charteris, Baron Charteris of Amisfield.

Martin Charteris married the Hon. Mary Margesson (a daughter of the 1st Viscount Margesson) on 16 December 1944 in Jerusalem and they had three children. He retired from the Army in 1951. In 1950, Charteris was appointed Private Secretary to Princess Brenda, who was then Duchess of Edinburgh and heir presumptive to the British throne. From Brenda’s accession in 1952 until 1972, Martin Charteris served as Brenda’s Assistant Private Secretary under Sir Michael Adeane. On Adeane’s retirement in 1972, Charteris was promoted to Private Secretary. He held this post until his retirement in 1977 and returned to Eton as its Provost. He was granted the honour of being a Permanent Lord in Waiting.

Charteris caused a stir in an interview that he gave to The Spectator in 1995, in which he described Fergie as “vulgar”; Carlo as “whiny”; and the Queen Mum Gawd Bless ‘Er as “a bit of an ostrich”, who doesn’t look at what she doesn’t want to see. Neither did Martin Charteris, he didn’t mention Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist, the rent boy ring run by Backdoor Billy the Queen Mum Gawd Bless Er’s loyal retainer (who died from AIDS), Jimmy Savile’s close friendship with Carlo or Lord Snowdon and Ma’am Darling utilising the services of Gwynne, Dafydd and Ann Dally, another Strong Woman Who Was Attacked By The Male Medical Establishment (Dafydd knew Ann Dally and Wendy Savage wrote words of support when Dally published her Own True Story). But then the Gang were busy trying to have me sent to live with Carlo’s pal Jimmy Savile in Broadmoor in 1995, after F blew that raspberry down the phone at Dafydd the year previously. Neither did Charteris mention that Brenda’s Woman of the Bedchamber Dame Mary Morrison’s brother Peter molested boys in care supplied to him by Gwynne and Dafydd.

Lord Charteris’s Own True Story. 

Lord Martin Charteris died on 23 Dec 1999, so he was safely out of the way by the time that the Waterhouse Report was published two months later. Lord Charteris took his Royal Secrets to the grave… 

The 11th Earl of Wemyss’s granddaughter was the socialite Ann Fleming, and his grandson, Hugo Charteris, was a renowned post-war author and screenwriter. The 11th Earl is the great-grandfather of the Scottish cartoonist Jamie Charteris.

Ann Geraldine Mary Fleming (née Charteris, 19 June 1913-12 July 1981), previously known as Lady O’Neill and Viscountess Rothermere, married firstly Lord O’Neill, secondly Lord Rothermere, and finally the writer Ian Fleming. Ian Fleming was friends with Charles Morrison, brother of Peter, customer of Gwynne and Dafydd. Ann had affairs with Roy Jenkins and Hugh Gaitskell.

Ann Fleming was born to Frances Lucy Tennant (1887–1925) and Captain Guy Lawrence Charteris (1886–1967) in Westminster. Ann learnt to value the conversation and friendship from her grandmother, Mary Constance Charteris, Countess of Wemyss, who had her own hedonistic past, having been one of The Souls. Ann was educated by governesses after an unsuccessful term at Cheltenham Ladies’ College. She was a debutante and she quickly married Lord O’Neill who was both an aristocrat and a financier in 1932. Ann had two children before beginning an affair with the influential Esmond Cecil Harmsworth in 1936.

Harmsworth was the heir to Lord Rothermere, who owned the Daily Mail. Ann’s husband went away to fight in WW II and Ann appeared with Harmsworth as well as having an affair with Ian Fleming, then a stockbroker, who became an assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence. It’s the Gang’s Big Mates again. In 1940, Harmsworth became Lord Rothermere. Ann’s husband was killed in action in 1944 and she married Lord Rothermere in 1945.

Ann and Lord Rothermere couple entertained and their social circle included the painter Lucian Freud (who painted her portrait), the choreographer Frederick Ashton and the artist Francis Bacon. Meanwhile, Ian Fleming left the Royal Navy and became a journalist with The Sunday Times. He had built Goldeneye on land in Jamaica and he had demanded three-month vacations from his employer to enjoy his holiday home. The two spent three months of every year together in Jamaica; Ann’s new husband thought she was in Jamaica to visit Noël Coward.

In 1951 Ann was divorced by Lord Rothermere and the following year she married Fleming. Lord Rothermere’s subsequent wife ‘Bubbles’ died in worrying circumstances involving prescribed medication in her continental villa and the explanation for the death didn’t make sense and neither did the prescribing practices of a number of Top Docs whom Bubbles was consulting. I blogged in detail about the death of Bubbles in an earlier post but the text disappeared.

Ann and Ian Fleming had one child, Caspar. Ann was pregnant with her son when they married; Caspar was born on 12 August 1952. Anxiety over his forthcoming marriage is said to be the reason that Ian Fleming wrote the first James Bond novel, Casino Royale. Ann had a £100,000 divorce settlement and Fleming sought additional sources of revenue to add to his salary from The Sunday Times.

The Flemings bought a house in London, where they entertained. They later rebuilt Warneford Place at Sevenhampton, near Swindon, renaming it Sevenhampton Place and moving there in 1963. Ian Fleming was not keen on the socialising, but their houses attracted Evelyn Waugh, Cyril Connolly and Peter Quennell,

Ann’s son Caspar died in London in October 1975 from an overdose of narcotics. Ann Fleming died at Sevenhampton Place on 12 July 1981.

 

The Carrs have three sons and one daughter: Adam Henry Maillard Carr (born 1951), Matthew Xavier Maillard Carr (1953-2011), Laura Selina Madeline Carr (born 1954) and Alexander Rallion Charles Carr (born 1958). Their son Adam married Angela P. Barry in 1988; their daughter Rose Angelica Mary Carr was born in 1991.

Matthew Carr was born in Oxford and studied at Camberwell School of Art, 1970-71, followed by Cheltenham School of Art, 1972-74. Carr left Eton at the age of 16 to study art at Camberwell. After completing his studies at Cheltenham School of Art, Carr returned to Oxford, and began teaching art and art history, until 1977 when he persuaded his parents to allow Andy Warhol to use their house in Oxford to hold a party. In Carr’s own words: ‘So I met Andy Warhol, he saw the drawings I was doing, and next thing I knew he put me up at the Ritz for two days, then took me to America. And he introduced me to Robert Fraser, who became my first agent.’ Carr readily admitted this was both his big break in the art world, but also the start of a problem with drug addiction as he entered the celebrity world of London and New York in the late 1970s. It was to take Carr 20 years to overcome his drugs addiction.

Despite being well connected in the art world, Carr was an infrequent exhibitor of his work. In 1977 he exhibited alongside Hugh Dunford Wood and Sara Lutyens in Church Street, Kensington, London, and he staged his first solo show at the Robert Fraser Gallery in London in 1983. Subsequent solo shows were at the Wildenstein Gallery in London in 1993, and two shows at Marlborough Fine Art, London, in 2003 and 2008. He also showed at Marlborough Gallery in New York in 2006.

In 2006 Matthew also took part in the exhibition Drawing Inspiration, held at the Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal, an exhibition that included the artists Tony Bevan, Christopher Bramham, Patrick Caulfield, Tracey Emin, Hughie O’Donoghue and others.

Carr died of leukaemia on 23 February 2011, a man with knowledge of very great wrongdoing re Gwynne and Dafydd. See the source imageAndy Warhol, a witness to even more himself, came to a sudden and unexpected end in Manhattan on 22 February 1987 at age 58. According to news reports, Warhol had been making a good recovery from gallbladder surgery at New York Hospital before dying in his sleep from a sudden post-operative irregular heartbeat. Prior to his diagnosis and operation, Warhol delayed having his recurring gallbladder problems checked, as he was afraid to enter hospitals and see doctors. His family sued the hospital for inadequate care, saying that the arrhythmia was caused by improper care and water intoxication. The malpractice case was quickly settled out of court; Warhol’s family received an undisclosed sum of money.

Shortly before Warhol’s death, doctors expected Warhol to survive the surgery, though a revaluation of the case about 30 years after his death showed many indications that Warhol’s surgery was in fact riskier than originally thought. It was widely reported at the time that Warhol died of a “routine” surgery, though when considering factors such as his age, a family history of gallbladder problems, his previous gunshot wound and his medical state in the weeks leading up to the procedure, the potential risk of death following the surgery appeared to have been significant. See previous posts.

 

Carr’s working method could be both intense and painful. According to the art critic Richard Dorment, sitting for Carr was a difficult experience involving ‘tedious hours sitting in frozen-faced silence, when, aware of eyes boring into me with frightening intensity, I listened to the scratching of pencil on paper and the ticking of my wristwatch.’

This almost forensic analysis can be seen in the way Carr would often organise images on his paper, most notably when drawing a series of twelve penes on a page, ‘in alarming close-up’, but also evident in his portrait heads which frequently float disembodied in the centre of the paper. In addition to Carr’s study of penes, his is best known for a similar drawing showing the heads of nine rhesus monkeys and a series of drawings of the semi-mumified human corpses in the Capuchin catacombs of Palermo.

Carr claimed to hate the picture he made of the musician Diana Ross, a rare commissioned piece, due to compromising on the singer’s request to include a sunset in the background. Instead he tended to be select his models himself, often from the world of literature, Tom Stoppard (Tom’s first wife was Miriam who began her career as an Angel in Newcastle until she tripped over the ring run by Gwynne’s mate Lord John Walton, after which Miriam soon found herself qualifying as a Top Doc and then becoming Doc to Celebs, Media Doc and writer of volumes on the menopause; Tom moved on to Felicity Kendal and is now married to Carlo’s ex, Sabrina Guinness), Miriam Gross, Sebastian Faulks, James Fenton, Alan Jenkins and Francis Wyndham.

Matthew married Lady Anne Mary Somerset in 1988 and their daughter Eleanor Carr was born in 1992.

Lady Anne Mary is the daughter of David Robert Somerset, 11th Duke of Beaufort (23 February 1928-16 August 2017), known as David Somerset until 1984. An important figure in the world of fox hunting, the Duke was Chairman of Marlborough Fine Art and was well known for frequent conflicts with hunt saboteurs. He also held the office of Hereditary Keeper of Raglan Castle and was President of the British Horse Society.

The Duke married, firstly, Lady Caroline Jane Thynne (28 August 1928-22 April 1995), daughter of the 6th Marquess of Bath, on 5 July 1950. Caroline is the sister of the infamous Loins of Longleat. The marriage took place at St Peter’s Church, Eaton Square, in the presence of Brenda’s mum and dad as well as other Royal family.

The Duchess of Beaufort presided over the restoration of Badminton House and its grounds. She received an honorary degree (LLD) from Bristol University for her charitable work.

They had four children:

  • Henry John FitzRoy Somerset, 12th Duke of Beaufort (b. 22 May 1952); married Tracy Louise Ward (a granddaughter of the 3rd Earl of Dudley, former actress and environmental activist) and has issue, two sons and one daughter. They divorced in 2018.]
    • Robert Somerset, Marquess of Worcester (b. 1989)
    • Lady Isabella Elsa Somerset (b. 1991)
    • Lord Alexander Somerset (b. 1995)
  • Lady Anne Mary Somerset (b. 21 January 1955); historian, married Matthew Carr (1953—2011) in 1988 and has one daughter, Eleanor Carr (b. 1992).
  • Lord Edward Alexander Somerset (b. 1 May 1958); He married in 1982 the Hon. (Georgiana) Caroline Davidson (2nd daughter of John Davidson, 2nd Viscount Davidson) and is reported as divorcing her after he was jailed for assaulting her. They have issue:
    • Francesca Somerset (b. 1984)
    • Rose Victoria Somerset (b. 1992).
  • Lord John Robert Somerset (b. 5 November 1964) also known as Lord Johnson Somerset, married to (now divorced from) Lady Cosima Vane-Tempest-Stewart (daughter of Alexander Charles Robert Vane-Tempest-Stewart, 9th Marquess of Londonderry), and has a son and daughter:]
    • Lyle David Somerset (b. 1991)
    • Romy Caroline Somerset (b. 1993)

The Duke married, secondly, Miranda Elisabeth Morley (born 1947), on 2 June 2000. She is a daughter of Brigadier General Michael Frederick Morley.

The Duke was criticised in January 2009 when a Swansea Councillor, Ioan Richard, discovered by a Freedom of Information Act request that he had been paid £281,431 for a 70 ft bridge to be built over the River Tawe near Swansea. The Dukes of Beaufort had owned the river bed for some 400 years, so when the local council had wanted to build a bridge linking a shopping centre to the Liberty Stadium, home of Swansea City football club and the Ospreys rugby team, it had to pay the Duke for the right to cross his river bed. Ioan Richard stated that he was “furious that public money had to be used to pay one of Britain’s richest estates. For centuries Swansea folk have paid rents to the Duke of Beaufort and we don’t owe this powerful and wealthy family anything.” Although a few other people do obviously. Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

Laura Carr married Richard E. Barrowclough in 1978 and has four children, Milo Edmond, Conrad Oliver, Theodore Charles, and Sibell Augusta.

In 1971, [Walter Zander] published ‘Israel and the Holy Places of Christendom’, which established him as an authority in this complex field involving religious, legal and territorial disputes and on which he wrote further scholarly articles. His last major publication, in the ‘Israel Law Review’ in 1982, concerned a historic dispute between the Coptic and the Ethiopian Churches. The aim in these publications, as always, was to find ways in which a spirit of tolerance and understanding could help resolve deep-rooted tensions and animosities. To bring Jews, Muslims and Christians together and, above all, to find ways of creating peace between Jews and Arabs, were Walter Zander’s abiding concerns to which he brought his full range of scholarly, legal, human and spiritual gifts. These qualities were evident in every aspect of his life: in his natural gift for friendship, his total involvement in the lives of his children and grandchildren, and his deep interest in everyone he met.

In 1988, on the occasion of his 90th birthday, Sir Isaiah Berlin wrote: ‘Walter Zander is probably the purest-hearted man I have ever met during my long life. He seems to me to be moved by a vision of spiritual ideals shared by the major religious faiths and forms of life shaped and dedicated to such ideals … If ever there was an embodiment of integrity and the disinterested pursuit of the good life, these qualities shine through in everything that he has done and been.’

He is survived by his four children, their spouses and nine grandchildren

After Walter Zander’s death, a flurry of obituaries were published.

‘The Times’:

Walter Zander, lawyer and scholar, died in South Croydon on April 7 aged 94. He was born in Erfurt, Germany, on June 8, 1898. When in 1948, Walter Zander published his pamphlet Is This the Way?, questioning the right of Jews to displace the indigenous Arabic population in the newly-formed Israel, it was barely noticed by the Palestinians whom he was trying to protect, and failed to move the politicians. But to his friends and fellow intellectuals (among them Gandhi and Albert Hourani) he was one of the most important Zionist thinkers of the century.

Zander was reading classics at Jena University when the first world war broke out. He fought on both the Eastern and the Western Fronts, winning the Iron Cross for gallantry. After the war he followed his father into the law, and started a practice in Berlin, later taking time off to study at the London School of Economics. In the early 1930s he wrote several articles on monetary policy.
In 1930 he married Gretl Magnus, daughter of the eminent physiologist Rudolf Magnus. By 1937 he and his family were forced to leave the increasingly hostile atmosphere of Berlin and emigrated to England. Showing a certain talent for improvisation, he set up a printing business in Slough and settled with his family in the village of Gerrards Cross. With the outbreak of war, however, he and his family were interned in the Isle of Wight (their rations were supplemented by food parcels from their former English neighbours). Meanwhile his mother, a gifted amateur painter and sculptor, had died in the Holocaust.

Zander was made Secretary of the British Friends of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in 1944. He held this post for 27 years and used it to air his considerable worries regarding proper arrangements, including compensation, for the Palestinians. Is This the Way? so impressed Gandhi that Zander was invited, as the only Jew, to a conference on world conflict situations in India.
One of the few Arabs to recognise Zander’s talents was his friend for more than fifty years, the late Albert Hourani. When, in 1972, Zander retired from the Friends, to devote himself to study it was principally through Hourani’s influence that he was made Senior Associate Fellow at St Antony’s College, Oxford, attached to the Middle East Centre.

In 1971 Zander published Israel and the Holy Places of Christendom. He wrote about the Christian church with an understanding rarely found in non-Christians. It reflected the obvious uneasiness he felt about the “judaizing” of Jersualem, although he held out a forlorn hope for the future in the shape of a probable Arab Israeli agreement.

His last important publication, in the Israel Law Review in 1982, concerned a historic dispute between the Coptic and the Ethiopian Churches.
Music had always been important to him. As a boy he had studied at the Conservatory in Erfurt and he was almost certainly the last person alive to have played under Arthur Nikisch, the legendary conductor of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and friend of Brahms.

His wife died in 1968, and he is survived by his four children, one of whom is Michael Zander, Professor of Law at the London School of Economics.

The Guardian:

THE LIFE of Walter Zander, the lawyer and Hebrew scholar who has died aged 94, overlaps the century and resonates correspondingly. Born in Erfurt, he graduated in classics at Jena University, won the Iron Cross for-gallantry on both the Eastern and the Western fronts in the first world war and followed his father into the law: But his mother, a gifted amateur painter and sculptor, later perished in the Holocaust.

He himself studied viola and piano in Erfurt and may well be the last person to have played under the baton of the great Nikisch, the friend of Brahms and director of the Leipzig Gewandhaus. All members of Walter’s Berlin student quartet immigrated to England and continued to play together for decades. One of his grandsons, Benjamin, is a-conductor. Musicians thronged Walter’s funeral in north London.

Apart from his legal practice, Zander studied economics at the LSE during the thirties and wrote several articles on monetary policy. But during and after the war he took a different route. In 1944 he became and remained for 27 years secretary of the British Friends of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He foresaw that Israel needed to forge cultural and political links
abroad and he fostered Asian and African studies at the university.
In 1948 his pamphlet Is This The Way? addressed the problem of both securing the new State of Israel and making proper arrangements, including compensation, for the indigenous Palestinian population. In 1972 he retired, as he put it, “to devote his remaining years to study,” and through the Arab scholar the late Albert Hourani he became attached to the Middle East Centre at St Antony’s College, Oxford.

This was for him the culmination of his intellectual life. Israel And The Holy Places Of Christendom (1971) established him as an authority in this complex field involving religious, legal and territorial disputes. Bringing together Jews, Muslims and Christians was his chief concern to which he brought his full range of scholarly, legal, human and spiritual gifts.

Roger Owen, Director of St Antony’s; writes: Those of us who worked at the Middle East Centre during Walter Zander’s association from 1970 until 1987 will remember him in particular for his careful scholarship and for the meticulous way he prepared, and then presented, his ideas at our regular Friday seminars. He will also be remembered for his generous parting gift to the centre when age and infirmity prevented him from visiting us regularly. It has now become the Walter Zander Scholarship, awarded each year to the best candidate for the Oxford M.Phil in Modern Middle Eastern Studies. But Walter’s circle of Oxford friends extended far beyond that. Those, who met him at High Table or simply walking slowly in the College grounds were all struck by his air of gentle dignity and the importance he so obviously attached to the simple rituals of everyday life. After even the shortest exchange you came away with the comforting feeling that the world was a reasonable and much more manageable place.

Torygraph obituary:

WALTER ZANDER, lawyer and scholar who has died aged 94, was a latter-day Pangloss. “You never know what is good news and what is bad news,” he would say. When Hitler came to power and he had to flee Germany he thought his whole world had collapsed. “But,” he liked to add, “I came to England and lived happily ever after.”
Walter Zander was born on June 8 1898 into a cultivated and prosperous German Jewish family; his father was an eminent lawyer, his mother a painter.
Young Walter himself trained as a musician and played the piano and viola. Then came the Great War. He fought in the German army both on the eastern and western fronts and was awarded the Iron Cross.

He studied at Jena and Berlin, took a doctorate in law and soon built up a legal practice in Berlin. In 1930 he married Gretl Magnus, daughter of Rudolph Magnus, the physiologist, and they had three children (a fourth was to be born in England).

When Hitler was elected to power in 1933 Zander could not believe what was happening, for it did not accord with his understanding of Germany and the Germans. As he came to terms with reality, he found it difficult to abandon his clients and he did not come to England until 1937. Zander was nearly 40 by then, with a young family and without an income or prospect of employment. But he teamed up with a fellow refugee who had developed a new photogravure process and set up a printing works in Slough. It immediately prospered, but in 1940, shortly after the fall of France, he and other German refugees were rounded up as “enemy aliens”, his factory was confiscated and he was interned on the Isle of Man.
Zander recalled those events, and even his flight from Germany, without bitterness; he preferred to dwell on the kindness of his neighbours in Gerrards Cross. His wife took in lodgers, traders gave her extended credit, and the headmaster of the local preparatory school waived his fees. His experience of those years made him an inveterate Anglophile.

He remained on the Isle of Man for 25 months and joined with other internees to set up a sort of ad hoc university in the camp and a scratch symphony orchestra. He lectured in law and economics and played in the orchestra. (Four of the more accomplished musicians were later to set up the Amadeus String Quartet.)

On his release Zander was engaged by the Ministry of Information to lecture British troops on the Nazi treatment of the Jews. In 1944 he became secretary of the British Friends of the Hebrew University, a post he retained for the next 27 years. It was a lowly office for a man with his qualifications. He began with one assistant in a tiny room, but soon built up a major operation which endowed scholarships, arranged cultural exchanges and remitted millions of pounds to Jerusalem.

The loathed Stuart Stanton at St George’s was up to something in Israel that was alleged to be even more criminal that the activities of his colleagues but no-one was ever quite sure what. Whatever Stanton was up to it involved a lot of money, wealthy private patients and mistresses and organisations that promoted cultural links between Israel and the UK. One such organisation with which Stanton was involved also starred Michael Grade. See previous posts.

Though working for an organisation at the heart of the Jewish national revival, Zander was not a Zionist. In 1948, while the nascent Jewish state was struggling for life, he published a pamphlet, Is This the Way?, in which he questioned the need for a state at all. He was not only concerned about the situation of the Arabs: he was also inclined to regard Jewish culture as a sort of homeland in its own right.
A deeply religious man, without any trace of sanctimoniousness, Walter Zander somehow managed to combine spirituality with geniality.
He could, though, carry charity to uncharitable lengths, and did not let even the Holocaust, in which his own mother perished, open his eyes to the realities of the Jewish situation.

Is This the Way? caused an immediate furore and there were demands for his resignation. But if it was easy to be exasperated with Zander it was impossible to be angry with him. After Norman Bentwich, a former Professor of International Law at the Hebrew University (and a Zionist), came to his support, the uproar subsided and Zander eventually became not only a cherished institution but a governor and an honorary fellow of the University.

In 1971 he was appointed an associate fellow of St Antony’s College Oxford. His eyesight was failing by then, and he became completely blind, but he managed to produce one book on Soviet Jewry and another on Israel and the Christian Holy Places.

He had an idyllic family life and derived great joy from the successes of his children.
One son became a professor of law at the London School of Economics, another a lecturer in medicine at St Thomas’s, the third, conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, while his daughter, a distinguished art historian and critic, is married to the President of Harvard University.

Sir Isaiah Berlin summed him up in a phrase on his 90th birthday. He was, he said, “probably the purest hearted man I have ever met”.
His wife died in 1968. They had three sons and a daughter.

The Indie:

THE PROBLEM in writing about Walter Zander is that readers who did not know him will not believe the words one is obliged to use. How to persuade them that this is not the ritual eulogy of the newly dead?

His life began with distinguished but conventional success: then turned in its middle years into horror and catastrophe. He could. have been, he should have been, bitter, angry, desperate, cynical. Instead, he was tolerant, gentle, courteous, generous, civilised, honourable – beyond belief honourable.Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Born a Jew in Germany, he fought in the Great War on both fronts and won the Iron Cross. Afterwards he established a lawyer’s practice in Berlin. When the Nazis arrived his Iron Cross offered no protection and he moved to England with his wife and young family (his mother died in the Holocaust). His career destroyed at the age of 40, this scholarly, unworldly man became an entrepreneur: With astonishing versatility he set up a printing business in Slough and a family home in Gerrards Cross. How bizarre those names ring out against his Central European background.

But very soon the Second World War destroyed his business and sent him off to internment in the Isle of Man. One of his comic memories was of the village bobby coming to arrest him and being hustled by the indignant villagers, indignant on behalf of an enemy alien with a music hall German accent. Deprived of their livelihood for a second time, his family were supported with food and- comfort by those same suburban, English villagers. The troubles passed.

In 1944 he was appointed secretary of the British Friends of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. This was his profession for the next 27 years and he was a wholehearted Zionist. Whole-hearted but magnanimous: one of his principal concerns was the attitude of Zionism to the Arabs who lived in the land where the new state of Israel was to be established. His pamphlet Is This the Way? (1948) influenced intellectuals all over the world (Gandhi among them) but failed to move the politicians or the public. The Israelis respected him but could not take his advice. The Arabs, convinced of Zionist injustice, were hardly aware of his efforts.

One man on the Arab side, the Oxford don Albert Hourani, saw his worth and became his close friend. Under Hourani’s sponsorship he became a member of St Antony’s College, Oxford, and active in the Middle East Centre, where he was loved and respected by both sides in the grim Arab Israel debate. In Oxford and in London, in Israel and in the United States, there grew around him, without effort on his part, a vast range of friends and disciples. The death of his wife Gretl 25 years ago hit him hard, but he saw their four children into careers of enviable talent and distinction, united by family love and a devotion to music which was central to their lives.

The blindness and infirmity of old age did not diminish his dignity, his grace or his goodness. On his 90th birthday Isaiah Berlin wrote that he was “probably the purest-hearted man I have ever met”. He died calm, confident of his religious faith and preternaturally polite. As we put him in his grave last week we were lovingly but uncomfortably aware that he had set us unattainable standards.

Sir James Craig wrote the above obituary.

The Jewish Chronicle:

Walter Zander, who has died aged 95, was a unique institution in postwar Anglo-Jewry, writes Jon Kimche.

As secretary of the Friends of the Hebrew University from 1944-70, he used his office as a springboard not only to raise urgently needed funds for the university on a level not previously achieved but, even more, to spread the academic range of the university. He was more concerned with achievement than with publicity and he enjoyed the personal support of Israel’s Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, during his years of often uphill struggle to introduce African, Asian and Arab studies – and students – to the Hebrew University. In those early days, Anglo-Jewry, American Jewry and Israelis had more pressing priorities for Israel.
But Walter Zander persevered with incomparable tact and natural charm supported by his profoundly knowledgeable background of all that was best in the German-Jewish liberal culture, he had acquired as an eminent Zionist lawyer in Berlin.

When he came with his young family to England in the 1930s, he first set up a printing business outside London but then suffered internment on the Isle of Man. His appointment as secretary of the Friends of the Hebrew University drew on his scholarship and wide talents. His influence was founded as much on example as on persuasion.

His counsel was sought increasingly and always given discreetly. After retiring at 72 to devote himself to study and writing, he became a Hebrew
University governor and a senior associate fellow at St Antony’s College, Oxford.
Often critical of Israeli policies towards the Arabs, but never of Israel, his greatest achievement was perhaps his ability to understand positions with which he deeply disagreed.

He became one of the foremost authorities on Israel’s holy places. his book on “Israel and the Holy Places of Christendom” has become a standard history of a very complex topic.

Despite his blindness in later years, he maintained his interest in his life’s work to the last. Predeceased by his wife, Gretl, in 1968, he is survived by three sons, a daughter and grandchildren.

Luke and Michael’s brother Benjamin Zander (born 9 March 1939) Boston Philharmonic's Zander.jpgis an English conductor, who is currently the Musical Director of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra.

Benjamin Zander was born in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire and started to compose music at the age of nine. Several of his compositions came to the attention of Benjamin Britten, who invited the Zander family to spend three summers in Aldeburgh, the seaside town in Suffolk in which Britten lived. Benjamin Zander took lessons with Britten and became a student of theory of Britten’s amanuensis and assistant, Imogen Holst.

Benjamin Zander’s main instrument was the cello. He began studying at the age of ten and became the youngest member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain at the age of twelve. Zander boarded at Uppingham School as a music scholar at the age of thirteen and then attended St. Paul’s School, London where he could continue his cello studies with Herbert Withers. At the age of fifteen, Benjamin became a student of the Spanish cello virtuoso Gaspar Cassadó and moved to Florence and Siena, Italy for the next three years. Zander completed his cello studies at the State Conservatoire in Cologne, Germany where he served as an assistant to Cassadó.

After living abroad for five years, Benjamin Zander returned to England, completed his A levels and studied at UCL for a degree in English Literature. During his period of study at UCL, he performed regularly as a cellist, giving recitals and chamber music concerts with the King-Zander-Arieli Trio and he taught at the Yehudi Menuhin School for gifted children.

In 1965 Benjamin won a Harkness International Fellowship and travelled to the US for graduate work at Brandeis University, Harvard University and with Leonard Shure and Ernst Oster in New York.

In 1967, Zander joined the faculty of the New England Conservatory of Music and remained on the faculty until 2012. In July 2012 the New England Conservatory and Preparatory School conferred on Zander the title of Faculty Emeritus, acknowledging his significant contributions to the School over 45 years. This honour came hot on the heels of Zander being fired in January 2012 for negligence amid allegations he had hired a videographer to record concerts, who had (with Zander’s knowledge) previously served a prison sentence for sexual assault of a minor. Zander later acknowledged that hiring the videographer, Peter Benjamin, without informing School administrators was a “significant oversight.”

Benjamin Zander is the Conductor and Music Director of the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, a youth orchestra in Boston comprising both high school and college age students. The BPYO rehearses at the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in Boston’s South End. Their premiere performance took place in Symphony Hall on 25 November 2012. On the program was Strauss’ Ein Heldenleben, Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, and Elgar’s Cello Concerto with Alisa Weilerstein as soloist.

Benjamin married Patricia Zander in 1966 and their daughter Jessica was born a few years later. Jessica and her husband David Tomaszewski have two daughters, Maya, born in April 2001 and Vivian-Rose, born in April 2003. Benjamin’s son-in-law is presumably this David Tomaszewski:

 Globe Staff / February 5, 2012

The conductor, author, and inspirational speaker sits in the living room of his Brattle Street home, listening to what is being said about him:

That he, Benjamin Zander, showed no remorse. That he put children at risk. That New England Conservatory, his professional home for 45 years, had no choice other than to fire him.

Zander, usually overflowing with laughter and enthusiasm, wearily runs his hands through his frizzy white hair. He’s unhappy with himself and he’s unhappy with NEC’s leaders, who he feels rushed to judgment. He notes that when NEC president Tony Woodcock fired him last month, Woodcock hadn’t yet discovered that it was the school’s opera department – not Zander – who first hired videographer Peter Benjamin, a registered sex offender, to record performances by NEC students. “It’s about as bad a situation as things can be,’’ Zander says. These days, he’s left to contemplate the fallout of hiring Benjamin. Three upcoming paid speaking engagements have already been cancelled. Zander is also pained by the damage done to NEC, an institution dear to him. “This is a nightmare for all of us,’’ he says. “I want us to all wake up and say, ‘What went wrong?’ ’’

Zander, 72, began teaching at NEC in 1966. He helped found the Boston Philharmonic in 1979, and, over the last two decades, has developed a profitable and high-profile gig giving leadership talks. Zander’s dynamic approach has been featured on “60 Minutes’’ and Charlie Rose, has scored him the opening speech at a World Economic Forum and, just last October, drew Sting to a rehearsal of NEC’s Youth Philharmonic Orchestra in Brown Hall.

And he refuses to see only the dark side of his current situation. The mess has, he says, humbled and transformed him. Indignant at first, Zander has now publicly apologized for his lack of judgment.

The crisis, he says, allowed him to hear both the appreciative words from scores of parents, teachers, and musicians who feel NEC made a mistake in dismissing him, and the criticism from friends and family members who have helped him realize just how irresponsible it was to support Benjamin without knowing enough about the crimes.

His wife, Rosamund Zander, winces at his defensiveness in the immediate wake of the firing. “It’s very difficult for the ego and psyche to transform when you’ve been beaten to a pulp,’’ she said. “He’s coming to a sense of responsibility or awareness that he hadn’t had before. But in order to get there, somebody came up with a two-by-four and smashed him.’’

It was about 20 years ago when the conductor, who led the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra and taught NEC’s interpretation class, wrote a letter of support for Benjamin on the eve of the videographer’s sentencing for raping and sexually abusing teenagers. Benjamin had worked for Zander prior to his arrest. He says he didn’t know the particulars of Benjamin’s crimes at the time and still didn’t 10 years later when he hired him to film concerts and rehearsals with the YPO or a class he taught at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts, a preparatory school affiliated with NEC. He also did not tell his superiors what he did know about Benjamin, which is that the videographer had been jailed for sex crimes involving minors.

Benjamin underwent a rigorous rehabilitation program, according to his attorney, and has faced no new charges of a sexual nature since his release from prison in the late 1990s. He has not been accused of any misconduct at NEC, but Zander now concedes that it was irresponsible for him to put a Level II sex offender in the same room with the teens the conductor worked with at NEC and Walnut Hill.

NEC learned of Benjamin’s past just before Christmas, tipped off by a parent. On Jan 12, after weeks of investigation and consultation with the school’s board and attorneys, Woodcock called Zander into his office and told him he would need to resign or be fired. In the short meeting, Zander did not resign – or apologize. “I was staggered,’’ said Woodcock. “It didn’t show any culpability. It reinforced the notion of no judgment whatsoever. If somebody is demonstrating no judgment, how can they be responsible for children?

Zander’s firing also has raised questions about NEC’s approach. Why wasn’t he suspended so the school could take more time investigating his role? Did the climate surrounding the Pennsylvania State University scandal, in which legendary football coach Joe Paterno was dismissed after revelations of child sex abuse by a former assistant, drive NEC’s actions?

“What Ben did was obviously a failure of judgment, but I would think in the interest of the school they would have tried hard to define his role and see if anything was salvageable,’’ said composer John Harbison, a friend of Zander’s who believes he should not have been fired. “They’ve not opened any channel to any possible reconciliation.’’

The conductor now says he was extremely naive. He had no idea that his job was at risk at any point, not when NEC first asked him about Benjamin in December, nor when the school phoned him in London during a recording session a few weeks later to ask more questions.

Benjamin’s NEC work, in fact, stretched far beyond Zander. In the school’s video library, there is a rack of almost two dozen DVDs commissioned by the school’s Opera Department. Two of the videos predate Zander’s hiring of Benjamin and one, a 2002 production of “Hansel and Gretel,’’ features two dozen middle-school students who performed as part of a children’s chorus.

At no time did NEC ever do a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) check on Benjamin, now standard practice for schools. It was a failure on NEC’s part, Woodcock said, and an important lesson. “It’s like air travel before 9/11 and air travel after 9/11,’’ he said. “We are in a new world as an organization. I think I need to know absolutely who is under the roof of NEC at any given moment. So I accept responsibility for that.’’

Though NEC had a committee investigate Benjamin’s work, Woodcock was unaware, when asked last week, of the 2002 opera videos. A day later, he said a faculty member, whom he declined to name, hired Benjamin without knowledge of his sexual crimes. The charges against the videographer included his having secretly videotaped himself having sex with three male teens, one of whom he abused for two years starting when the boy was 13.

“If I come to learn otherwise, I will take appropriate action,’’ said Woodcock.

Zander finds it hard to believe that others didn’t know of Benjamin’s past. Whether filming for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, American Repertory Theater, or Boston Ballet, Benjamin was well known in Boston’s cultural community. He was particularly close with the late Sarah Caldwell, the legendary head of Opera Company of Boston. In fact, Caldwell not only attended his 1994 sentencing hearing, she sobbed in court when he was led away, Benjamin confirmed through his attorney, John Swomley. “If [Woodcock] had just stepped back, if he had acted judiciously and said, ‘Let’s look at this. Let’s see what’s going on here,’ ’’ Zander says. “Peter Benjamin, for better or worse, is part of the fabric of the Boston artistic scene. He’s worked everywhere, and he’s worked so much at the conservatory that when he walks in the door, people don’t even look up. Who knew? Who didn’t know? It didn’t seem to matter.’’

Woodcock says Zander left him little choice. He called the conductor a “powerhouse’’ in an interview last week and said he was familiar with his work before coming to NEC having attended one of his leadership talks and read the book Zander wrote with his wife, Rosamund, “The Art of Possibility.’’ But relations between the two grew strained after Woodcock was hired in 2007. Neither Woodcock nor Zander would say why.

In fact, Zander had already been forced out of YPO. Last summer, NEC announced a “transition’’ plan for the youth orchestra that saw Zander stepping down in 2013, after two more seasons. Publicly, the two presented a unified front, with Zander’s exit to be punctuated by a yearlong celebration, tour and lifelong appointment as music director emeritus. Zander says now he didn’t want to leave but had no choice. Woodcock, in an interview last week, said that the conductor’s prominence did not play into the decision to fire him for the Benjamin case and that Zander should not have received special treatment. “I don’t know about one set of rules for individuals because they’re visiting deity and another code of conduct because they’re like you and I,’’ he said.

The loss of the post, for Zander, was crushing. He says that he has always taken special pride in his work with the youth in the YPO on Saturdays and at Walnut Hill on Mondays. “It’s growth and development for the next generation,’’ he said. “That’s my life’s work.’’

Just last summer, Zander took the YPO on a tour of Eastern Europe. To help foot the bill, Zander says he paid $260,000 out of his own pocket – money raised through speaking fees. Players have been writing Zander since news broke. “You CANNOT leave us! You MUST come back!’’ e-mailed Njeri Grevious, 16, a violinist from Newton.

Kathleen Boyd, first flute in the Boston Philharmonic and a student of the conductor at NEC in the 1970s, said Zander’s firing has sparked considerable anger and fear among the many musicians who studied under him. “Ben should be celebrated for the gifts he has given to all of us,’’ she said. “This is such a wrong ending for his time at NEC.’’ Carol Ehrlich, whose son Harry, 15, plays cello in the YPO, felt NEC should have reprimanded Zander, not fired him. She praised the conductor for the care he takes in mentoring young musicians. “The kids don’t just play music. He encourages them to see music as making up a bigger statement in the world,’’ she said. “Now they feel abandoned and hurt. Through this process, the kids came in last.’’

Not everyone associated with the YPO supports Zander. You do realize that he was basically promoting a level II sex offender this whole time, right?’’ wrote one player on a Facebook thread after another suggested protesting NEC’s move. And a parent of a player said she agreed with the firing. “I think that was the exact correct response,’’ said the woman, who asked to remain anonymous for fear her child would lose opportunities in the music community if she criticized Zander. “He was a huge celebrity, he could be extremely grandiose and he seems to me to be failing in judgment.’’

If there is a bright spot here, says Zander, it is how this crisis has changed him. The first week was spent battling his feelings and avoiding reality. He took refuge from the reporters camped outside by heading to his daughter’s house. He threw on a suit, a tie, and a smile and gave a paid talk at a leadership conference for Boston Scientific as if nothing had happened. He managed to get word of his crisis to Rosamund, who was in Africa climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

His older brother, Michael, a celebrated legal scholar from England, flew in to counsel him. He felt Zander wasn’t taking responsibility for his hiring of Benjamin and should apologize. So did former US Ambassador Swanee Hunt, a close friend and neighbour. “I said, ‘Ben, for you, the first response has to be what my part is, not what they did to me,’ ’’ she told him.

A week after he was fired, Zander began to open up. That, he says, is when the transformation began. First, Rosamund returned home from Africa. The two have been separated since 1984, but they talk every day, live around the block from each other, and collaborated on the book and inspirational philosophy that have made Zander a world-renowned public speaker. She stressed how inappropriate it was to bring a convicted sex offender, whose crimes involved video no less, into a school to film children. Then Michael came down for breakfast one morning with a typed letter explaining two approaches. The first would be to accept that his actions were “grossly negligent.’’ The second would be to continue justifying his behaviour. “The reason I think the first approach will serve you better is that it is cleaner and more honourable,’’ Michael wrote. “Taking the blame on yourself will release you from blaming others. It will release you also from endless agonizing over the question and from wondering and fearing what other people think. . . . You will have stood up and been counted.’’

At that moment, Zander says his perspective shifted. He finally understood what he had done. That is when he sat down to write his apology. Last Thursday night, Zander returned to the Boston Philharmonic for the first time since the scandal. The orchestra, he says, is all he has left.

On this night, with the more than 80 some players gathered at the Somerville Armory for a rehearsal, Zander gave a short speech. He repeated his apology and spoke of how much he regretted bringing Benjamin into NEC. He then assured the players that the Boston Philharmonic was a separate entity. “It’s been very tough, the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with in my life,’’ he said. “But I’ve grown enormously.’’ With that, the conductor raised his arms and signalled the start to Richard Strauss’s “Ein Heldenleben.’’ It was a typically energetic performance. He shook his arms until his glasses slipped down his nose, stomped his right leg and sang along with the music as he offered instruction.

During the first break, Zander hugged principal horn player Whitacre Hill. “A big relief that this is still here,’’ said Hill, a veteran of the recently defunct Opera Boston.

Zander talked of the Boston Philharmonic board’s support during the crisis. Then he wiped the sweat from his forehead and smiled. “You can’t lie with your body, and you can’t lie with your eyes,’’ he said. “It’s great to be back.’’

In 2012 I left north Wales after being threatened by a policeman with a gun. Tony Francis was found dead in the same year.

Benjamin Zander’s brother Luke was a GP with a senior academic position at the most elite medical school in London and in 1985-86 gave his full support to Wendy Savage who was facilitating an international trafficking ring along with Zander, Geoffrey Chamberlain and others. Because I refused to withdraw my complaints about their partners in crime in north Wales I had my career wrecked and my friend was murdered in April 1986. The acknowledgements in Wendy’s book state ‘I would like particularly to thank Luke Zander and Ron Taylor whose understanding of the principles of justice and own personal integrity have been an example to all doctors…’

The Chairman of the GMC at the time of this farce, who refused to investigate my complaints about Gwynne and then Dafydd and Tony Francis, was Lord John Walton, a personal friend of Gwynne and Dafydd and the Top Doc who was the Top Dog in the branch of the same trafficking ring that operated in the North East of England.

Neil Leon Rudenstine (born January 21, 1935) served as President of Harvard University, 1991-2001.

Brenda with two high profile Harvard graduates:

Rudenstine was born in Danbury, Connecticut, the son of Mae (née Esperito) and Harry Rudenstine, a prison guard. His father was a Ukrainian Jew who emigrated from Kiev; his mother, a Roman Catholic and the daughter of immigrants from Campobasso, Italy.

Neil Rudenstine is an Episcopalian. He attended the Wooster School in Danbury on a scholarship and was selected to participate in Camp Rising Sun, the Louis August Jonas Foundation’s international summer scholarship program. 

Rudenstine studied the humanities at Princeton University (A.B., 1956) and participated in Army R.O.T.C. After serving in the U.S. Army as an artillery officer, he attended New College, Oxford, on a Rhodes Scholarship and earned an M.A. In 1964, Rudenstine received a Ph.D. in English literature from Harvard; his dissertation, entitled Sir Philip Sidney: The Styles of Love and directed by Douglas Bush, treated Sidney’s poetic development.

Most of Rudenstine’s career has been dedicated to educational administration. Rudenstine taught at Harvard, 1964-68 as an instructor and then an Assistant Professor in the Department of English and American Literature and Language.

From 1968 to 1988, Rudenstine was a faculty member and senior administrator at Princeton University. A scholar of Renaissance literature, he was an Associate Professor and then a full Professor of English. He also held a series of administrative posts at Princeton:

  • Dean of students (1968–72)
  • Dean of the college (1972–77)
  • Provost (1977–88)

After Rudenstine’s time at Princeton University, he served as Executive Vice-President of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation from 1988 to 1991.

Rudenstine’s then went on to serve as President of Harvard from 1991 to 2001. At Harvard he gained a reputation as an effective fundraiser, overseeing a period of highly successful growth of Harvard’s endowment.

Rudenstine was known as a very mild-mannered president, supporting the arts and humanities and generally avoiding internal controversy, usually taking a hands-off approach to leading the university. He is also known for his initially hostile response to the Harvard Living Wage Campaign of 1998–2001, an initiative that drew the active support of thousands of students, faculty, and alumni, including the late Senator Ted Kennedy. In November 1994, citing exhaustion, Rudenstine took a three-month leave of absence, during which provost Albert Carnesale served as acting President.

In Nov 1994 Dafydd obtained his injunction from Liverpool High Court against F and I on the basis that I was an immediate threat to Dafydd’s life; extensive perjury took place on the part of Dafydd. The North Wales Police, the MDU and Hempsons all knew that Dafydd perjured himself. There was only one genuine allegation made by Dafydd in his affidavit and that was that some months previously F had blown a raspberry (or in Dafydd’s parlance ‘impersonated the sound of a flatus’) down the phone at Dafydd.

See the source image

No questions were asked and I – rather than the Phantom Raspberry Blower – was deemed to present such a danger to Dafydd’s life that an ex-parte injunction was issued.

I’ll tell readers a secret. The injunction was read by the police, the bailiffs and other Hergest patients who just pissed themselves laughing at the contents. F and I thought it so ridiculous that a few days later after Gwynedd Community Health Council told me that no, they would not be taking action re a serious breach of confidence by Dafydd and no, they would not respond to yet another letter from Brown confirming that in the summer of 1987 Brown heard Dafydd telling me that if I dropped my complaint about him, he would get me a place at Liverpool Medical School, F said ‘I’ve had enough of this, I’m going to ring that bastard up’. So F did, in the guise of yet another mad upper class Top Doc (Dafydd knew so many of them that he always had difficulty deciding whether it was a genuine call or F). Once Dafydd realised that it was F, he snapped down the phone ‘Then I suggest that you read the injunction served on you by Liverpool High Court’. At which point F responded in the manner of a baffled upper class Top Doc who decided that Dr Jones had obviously gone completely mad.

No we weren’t arrested, we didn’t even receive a visit from the police, I presume because so many people had read the contents of that injunction and were saying ‘Do you know, Liverpool High Court actually gave him an injunction because F blew a raspberry down the phone at him..’ And of course they also knew that extensive perjury had been committed in Liverpool High Court with the knowledge of the MDU, Hempsons and the North Wales Police. What Dafydd and the Gang did do throughout 1995 was try and raise yet another Case For Me To Be Sent To Broadmoor and hopefully lobotomised.

A raspberry down the phone – from someone other than me – was the only concrete evidence that they had.

Well, MDU, Hempsons and MDU barrister Sir Robert Francis QC? Any comments? 

The Presiding Judge of the Northern Circuit in Nov 1994 was Sir John Kay. In Feb 1990, Sir John Kay sitting at Leeds High Court issued an injunction against me at the request of Gwynedd County Council on the basis of the perjury of two Gwynedd social workers, Jackie Brandt and Keith Fearns. I had never met Keith Fearns and had met Brandt at most three times. Fearns and Brandt maintained that I was a threat to the lives of all of the staff of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team.

John  Kay issued an ex-parte injunction that prevented me from even writing to any member of staff of Gwynedd Social Services. The reason that I had been writing to them was that Brandt had unlawfully detained me in Sept 1986 and during that time I was forced into a room alone with Dafydd who Talked Sex and when I challenged him told me to get out of north Wales and if I ever came back he’d have me arrested. No-one would answer my letters or phone calls about this matter; I was insulted, sneered at and the phone would be hung up on me. So that is why I had visited Brandt myself a grand total of two or three times to ask ‘WHAT do you think that you are doing?’

By Feb 1990, I had been detained unlawfully again of course. The Mental Health Act Commission  admitted that Brandt, Dafydd et al had broken the law but no, no action was taken against anyone, except of course me.

Documentation now in my possession demonstrates that Lucille Hughes and Ron Evans, the bent lawyer employed by Gwynedd County Council, were micromanaging the whole discourse re my Dangerousness and were giving detailed instructions to Fearns and Brandt re what to say to the police, in statements etc. I also have copies of sarky handwritten notes written by Brandt’s colleagues who were in fear of their lives that were made after I had tried to get answers on the phone saying things like ‘So she’s going to come to the office!! WOW we’re SO SCARED!!!’

They were a gang of violent, lying people traffickers who were not in any way physically afraid of me or any other Dangerous Nutter. 

After Fearns perjured himself in Feb 1990, he was appointed Leader of the Arfon CMHT. Sir John Kay did far better than that. In 2000, the year that the Waterhouse Report was published, Sir John Kay became a Lord Justice of Appeal.

Sir John Kay specialised in criminal cases but was known as much for his Rugger as he was for his legal career. Kay’s son Ben played as a second-row forward in the England rugby team that won the World Cup in Australia in 2003. Kay was formerly a keen rugby player himself and later an avid follower of the game. He had been President of Waterloo Rugby Football Club and ran the club’s junior sides at the time that his son was coming through. He and Lady Kay travelled to Australia to watch all of England’s games from the quarter-final stage through to the final.

John William Kay was born and grew up at Blundellsands on the outskirts of Liverpool, where his father imported timber. John was educated at Denstone and at Christ’s, Cambridge. He read for the Bar while teaching at a prep school in Hertfordshire and was called by Gray’s Inn in 1968. He was subsequently a Tutor in Law at Liverpool University for a year while starting out as a general common law barrister on the Northern Circuit, based at Chambers in Liverpool.

Mervyn Phillips the CEO of Clwyd County Council was a law graduate from Liverpool University (see ‘Ain’t Nothing Clean, Not Even the Welsh Calvinistic Methodists’). Other members of the Gang also graduated from Liverpool – and not just the Top Docs. Lucille Hughes undertook her social work qualification at Liverpool and her henchman of a Deputy Director in Gwynedd Social Services, Glanville Owen, was a graduate of Liverpool. See ‘I Know Nuzzing…’

Kay was appointed a Recorder in 1982, took Silk in 1984 and was approved to sit as a deputy High Court judge in 1989. He was appointed to the High Court bench in 1992, assigned to the Queen’s Bench Division, and was Presiding Judge on the Northern Circuit, 1994-97 before being promoted to the Court of Appeal in 2000.

In December 2002, Kay sat with Mr Justice Wright and Mr Justice Henriques at the appeal of Jeremy Bamber, who had been convicted in 1986 of murdering five members of his adoptive family at their farmhouse in Essex. See post ‘Family Annihilation’. Bamber argued there were 15 grounds for appealing against his conviction, including new scientific evidence. But Kay and his fellow judges threw out each of these in a 522-point judgment. “We do not doubt the safety of the verdicts,” they said, “and we have recorded in our judgment the fact that the more we examined the detail of the case the more likely we thought it to be that the jury were right.”

In Feb 1990, Kay did not doubt the word of a bunch of lying, perjuring criminal gangsters who were facilitating sexual assaults on children as well as others and someone on his Circuit – I haven’t yet published the name of the Cocklecarrot who issued the injunction in Nov 1994, that’s a Surprise For Later – didn’t doubt the same word of the same Gang… 

Kay was at various times Chairman of the Criminal Committee of the Judicial Studies Board, the National Criminal Justice Board, the Criminal Justice Council and the Criminal Justice Consultative Council.

Kay died at only 60, in July 2004, when I was mid-way through my PhD and Brown and I had appeared in the academic and lay press discussing the mental health services. Kay’s Torygraph obituary stated that ‘in private, John Kay was kind and approachable, always ready with advice, and a loving family man.’

Besides rugby, Kay enjoyed horse racing and genealogy. If he liked Tracing Histories, Kay would also have known that F was fitted up for arson and Class A drugs offences in 1986 after he refused to keep quiet about the boys in Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor being abused and mistreated by Gwynedd social workers. After witnessing a possible murder of an inmate in the Risley ‘hospital wing’, F was transferred to Denbigh, where he was illegally detained by Dafydd for a year. By the time that F was released, Wendy’s colleague Ollie Brooke had either been released on appeal by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane or was about to be.

In 1987, the year of Ollie’s Release, Prof Mark Williams discovered the Miracle Of Mindfulness when he was working with Dafydd and the Gang in Bangor.

In July 1987, shortly after Ollie found himself a free man once more, Tuppence Archer (originally from Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset) won £500k libel damages from the Daily Star after Justice Caulfield raved about the Fragrant Mary. Tuppence perjured himself at the trial but didn’t go to jail for this until 2001. Monica Coghlan, the prostitute with whom Tuppence and the Fragrant Mary maintained that Tuppence had never had sex and who was insulted roundly in Court in 1987 died after a car accident some four weeks before she was due to give evidence at Tuppence’s trial for perjury. Fragrant Mary also perjured herself in 1987 but not a word was said about that. Tuppence and Fragrant Mary have numerous connections with Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang. See ‘Tuppence and His Fragrant Wife’.

John Kay is survived by his wife, Jeffa (née Connell), whom he married in 1966, and by their son and two daughters. Kay’s daughter Dame Amanda Yip styled The Hon. Mrs Justice Yip, is a judge of the High Court of England and Wales. Yip was educated at the Merchant Taylors’ Girls’ School and Emmanuel College, Cambridge, of which Tom King is also a graduate. Yip was called to the bar by Gray’s Inn  in 1991, the year in which that other member of Gray’s Inn St Helena held a test case re Abused Wimmin in the neighbouring court to me at the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand, where I was appearing after the Drs Francis had once more demanded my imprisonment on the basis of yet more perjury, with the knowledge of Hempsons and the MDU. Like her father, Amanda Yip  practised at Exchange Chambers in Liverpool, specialising in personal injury and clinical negligence work. That’ll be a bit more for the MDU to get their teeth into then.

Amanda was appointed a Recorder in 2009, Queen’s Counsel in 2011 and a deputy High Court judge in 2013, the year after Tony Francis was found hanging dead, the year before Anna, the daughter of St Helena’s Gray’s Inn colleague Michael Mansfield was er found hanging dead. 

Yip was appointed a Justice of the High Court in 2017, a few months after I began this blog. 

Jeremy Bamber is hoping to mount another appeal and John Kay was also involved in the case of Sion Jenkins, the teacher who was accused of the murder of his foster daughter Billie-Jo, another possible miscarriage of justice. I have no idea if Jeremy and Sion are guilty or not, but John Kay knowingly colluded with serious criminals. No judgement of his can be considered sound.

From ‘Harvard Gazette’:

Neil L. Rudenstine (1935-) served as Harvard’s president from 1991-2001. Neil L. RudenstineRudenstine, a scholar of Renaissance literature, received his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1964. After serving as a faculty member at Harvard for four years, he joined the faculty at Princeton, where he had earned his undergraduate degree.

At Princeton, Rudenstine held a number of posts in academic administration, including dean of students, dean of the college, and provost.

Rudenstine then served as executive Vice President of the Mellon Foundation for four years before being chosen for the Harvard presidency in 1991.

At Harvard, as part of an overall effort to achieve greater coordination among the University’s schools and faculties, Rudenstine set in motion an intensive process of University-wide academic planning intended to identify some of Harvard’s main intellectual and programmatic priorities.

In 1999, he announced the launch of a major new venture in interdisciplinary learning, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, created through the merger of Radcliffe College with Harvard.

During his tenure Rudenstine worked to sustain and build federal support for university-based research. Under his leadership, Harvard’s federally sponsored research grew to $320 million in 2000, up from $200 million in 1991.

Rudenstine also stressed the University’s commitment to excellence in undergraduate education, the importance of keeping Harvard’s doors open to students from across the economic spectrum, the task of adapting the research university to an era of rapid information growth, and the challenge of living together in a diverse community committed to freedom of expression.

Rudenstine led Harvard’s first University-wide funding campaign in modern times and what was then the largest higher education campaign in history. The efforts surpassed the goal of $2.1 billion to raise more than $2.6 billion from about 175,000 alumni and friends of Harvard.

That success allowed the University to take meaningful steps toward its goals, such as increasing both undergraduate and graduate student financial aid, embarking on new construction projects to provide cutting-edge facilities for study and research, and endowing new chairs and professorships to ensure that Harvard would continue to attract top faculty.

Since stepping down from the presidency, Rudenstine has been involved in a digital arts venture, ArtSTOR, and taught courses at Princeton.

Rudenstine is married to art historian Angelica Zander Rudenstine.

The Neil L. and Angelica Zander Rudenstine Gallery at the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research is the only exhibition space at Harvard devoted to works by and about people of African descent.

17 May 2001, Harvard Gazette carried the first article of two re Neil Rudenstine’s Journey: Becoming

At the age of 14, Neil Rudenstine set out on an epic journey. Physically, the distance was only a few miles, but in personal terms it was like traveling to another world. He had attended local public schools through the eighth grade. Now he was about to enter the Wooster School, a private, college-preparatory institution. Although it was located in Danbury, Conn., his hometown, he would live at the school rather than at home. It was not a turn of events that anyone in the Rudenstine family had anticipated.

“We really didn’t know what a boarding school was,” Rudenstine said, “and we certainly had never heard about Wooster. It was also incredibly expensive. It would have cost practically my father’s whole salary to go to the Wooster School for one year.” Rudenstine was able to attend the school because he had won a full scholarship, a distinction that created its own set of burdens.

“Academically, I wasn’t at all sure I would survive because it was a very selective school, and it was totally different from anything I’d ever been in before. And because I was going on a full scholarship, I felt that … no one had actually told me this – but I felt that I certainly had to do well.”

Rudenstine was not only the first person in his family to go to boarding school; he was the first person in his immediate family to finish high school, period. In that sense, he was a social and educational pioneer, an exciting position to be in, but a scary one as well. It meant that, in some areas at least, he could no longer turn to his parents for guidance or advice.

“I think that must be an experience for many people who are the first ones in their family to go to private school or college, because it’s a world that hasn’t been penetrated. It wasn’t as if you could turn to your father and say, ‘How was it?’ and he would say, ‘It’s nothing to worry about.’”

While Rudenstine’s parents were unable to give him the inside scoop on the prep school experience, they were a major influence on his getting into one in the first place. His father, Harry Rudenstine, never went further than the eighth grade, but he was a voracious reader who instilled dreams of educational attainment in his children. A first-generation American, the son of Jewish immigrants from Kiev, he joined the Army Corps of Engineers as a young man, learning trigonometry and other skills on the job.

It was while he was stationed in Ossining, N.Y., that he met his wife, Mae, an Italian Catholic whose family had emigrated from Campobasso, a town just east of Naples. As a member of the Corps, Harry traveled extensively, but after he and Mae were married, a more settled lifestyle seemed in order, so he got a job as a guard in the federal prison system. More moves followed, but mostly within the Northeast. The last assignment brought the family to Danbury, where a new federal prison had just been built.

“My father was very thoughtful, very interested in education; read tremendously, especially history and biography. I think if he had gone to college, he would have had an extraordinary career, and he made up for it by reading on his own and by being very powerfully concerned that his children should be well educated.”

Rudenstine did do well at the Wooster School, well enough to be admitted to Princeton, again on a scholarship. But Wooster was far more than a stepping stone to the Ivy League. Founded in 1926, the school, at the time Rudenstine arrived, had only 90 students who convened as a group several times daily – for meals, chapel, evening study hall, and athletics. Rudenstine later was to describe it as almost a one-room schoolhouse. But what the school lacked in size, it made up for in the quality of its faculty, particularly its headmaster, John Verdery.

In 1954, responding to the Supreme Court decision Brown vs. The Board of Education, Verdery decided to integrate the school, although, as a private school it was not legally bound by the court’s verdict.

“It had a real effect on me to see him decide to integrate this little boarding school when nobody was pushing him to do so,” said Rudenstine, who graduated in 1952, but continued to keep in close touch with the school. “In fact, a lot of people didn’t think he ought to do it, but he just felt it was the right thing to do.”

Rudenstine describes his experience at Princeton as “wonderful,” although his four years there did not give him a specific career direction. He chose an interdisciplinary major called Special Program in the Humanities and wrote a senior thesis on the poetry and criticism of Keats, Arnold, and Eliot. He also took history courses and thought about becoming a lawyer, but winning a Rhodes Scholarship meant that he could defer his final decision for another two years.

For a young man who had never been out of the United States, New College, Oxford, was a revelation. Rudenstine sailed to England with several dozen other Rhodes and Marshall scholars, an interlude that allowed the group to get to know one another and form friendships.

A mere 11 years after the end of World War II, England was still recovering from the damage inflicted by German bombing, but at the same time there was an exciting sense of rebirth. Rudenstine benefited from the presence of such distinguished professors as Isaiah Berlin, George Kennan, and W.H. Auden. He also took full advantage of the opportunity to see Europe.

“In those days, the dollar was very strong and Europe was very inexpensive, so a student with very little money could still travel. I would zoom off with two and three friends to one vacation in Scotland, more than one in France, more than one in Italy, one in Salzburg, and so on. You could live in youth hostels or inexpensive hotels and eat modestly on a few dollars a day.”

Rudenstine started out studying modern history, then switched to literature, necessitating his staying an extra year to complete his studies. It was during this time that a friend invited him to tea and introduced him to a young student named Angelica Zander.

The daughter of a Dutch mother and a German-Jewish father who had left Berlin in 1937 and settled in London, Zander was working on a bachelor’s degree in modern languages and literature at the time. The relationship evolved gradually, but by the end of Rudenstine’s third year at Oxford the couple were well along the way to being a couple for life.

They were not alone. Three friends – Americans who had sailed to England with Rudenstine and studied with him at New College – also married English women. The four couples remain friends to this day.

Rudenstine made another important decision at this time. He finally gave up all thought of a law career, deciding instead to go to graduate school in English literature. He applied to Harvard and was accepted, arriving here in September 1960, after six months spent fulfilling his ROTC obligations as an artillery lieutenant at Fort Sill, Oklahoma…

 

Another Expert Witness called by Wendy Savage to testify as to her Clinical Competence while she Cared For those Wimmin was named in Wendy’s book as Peter Dunn, then Reader in Child Health, Bristol University. I recognised Peter when I saw his photo, he’s the man who’s photos taken at an Important Medical Conference with his friends Wendy and Geoffrey Chamberlain litter the internet. I’ve used them in previous posts; I wondered who he was because I didn’t recognise him.

Professor Peter Dunn.jpg

Having a cup of char with Wendy between Important Lectures where We Doctors Share Our Expertise:

Catching up with ‘Bodger’ Chamberlain amidst a hectic schedule:

Peter MacNaughton Dunn, FRCP, FRCOG, FRCPCH (born 1929) is the paediatrician most notable for introducing into the UK the Gregory box in 1971, that provides continuous positive airway pressure in the treatment of infant respiratory distress syndrome of the newborn and conducting research into hip dysplasia and foetal adaptation to extrauterine life. Dunn was also notable for being known for founding the charidee the British Association of Perinatal Medicine.

Dunn was educated at Marlborough College before matriculating at St John’s College University of Cambridge to study medicine, attaining a degree in 1953. Dunn was very probably at Marlborough College with Prof David Donnison; if they didn’t know each other from Marlborough, they probably met through some other way, Donnison and his wife Kay Carmichael being key members of the Richard Crossman-LSE-Top Docs and social workers network that facilitated Gwynne and Dafydd’s wider network. I have provided extensive details re Donnison and Kay Carmichael in previous posts (they had fingers in numerous pies, even well after retirement because they became Community Activists then), but here’s a brief resume.

David Vernon Donnison (19 January 1926-28 April 2018) was Professor of Social Administration at the LSE 1961-69, Lord Piercy 1945.jpgand Professor of Town and Regional Planning (1980–91) and Honorary Research Fellow (from 1991) at the University of Glasgow.

Donnison was born in colonial Burma; his father, Frank Siegfried Vernon Donnison, CBE, was a colonial administrator in the Indian Civil Service. His mother was Ruth Seruya MBE, JP, granddaughter of Simeon Singer. David was educated at boarding schools, finally at Marlborough College, 1940-43. Donnison served in the Royal Navy during the Second World War, before going up to Magdalen College, Oxford, in 1947 to read PPE.

In 1950, Donnison was appointed as a lecturer at the University of Manchester, where he worked under W. J. M. Mackenzie. Manchester University’s School of Medicine was solidly behind Gwynne and Dafydd, but other academics at Manchester University, including Mackenzie’s colleagues, were also part of the network, including some who were personal friends of Sir Clough and Bertrand Russell (see post ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’).

Isobel Emmett, a social anthropologist at Manchester University, married a man from Croesor who was friends with the Welsh speaking psychiatric social worker who was appointed in the late 1960s to safeguard Welsh language rights. The effect of the Welsh speaking social worker was to make it even easier for Gwynne and Dafydd to bang people up and lobotomise them because the Welsh speaking assessment box had then been ticked. Dafydd was a Welsh language activist himself… See post ‘Theatre Of The Absurd’.

Prof Eric Sunderland, one of Lord John Walton’s mates from Durham University who was headhunted by UCNW to become Principal in 1984 after Brown and I refused to shut up about Gwynne, was a social anthropologist who knew the anthropology crowd at Manchester University.

Eric replaced Sir Charles Evans as Principal of UCNW, Evans the 1953 Everest Hero who worked as a neurosurgeon and then general surgeon in Liverpool before he was appointed Principal of UCNW in 1958. Evans was a pal of Gwynne and Dafydd.

From 1946 to 1982, the President of UCNW was Lord Kenyon. Lord Kenyon was succeeded by William Mars-Jones, who was succeeded in 1995 by the Windbags’ friend and Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79, Lord Cledwyn. Who was er mates with Gwynne, Dafydd, Lucille etc.

David Donnison remained at Manchester until 1953, when he took up a lecturing post at the University of Toronto. Returning to England two years later, he joined the LSE as a reader (and thus Richard Titmuss‘s deputy as Chair of Social Administration); in 1961, Donnison succeeded Titmuss to the Chair. Donnison was in the thick of Richard Crossman’s LSE crowd who acted as advisers to the post-war Labour Gov’ts, notably Titmuss, Brian Abel-Smith, Peter Townsend, Roy Parker, John Grieve and Tony Lynes“. They believed that they had a “profound commitment to eradicating poverty of income and opportunity’. Sadly they did indeed have ‘a deep and lasting influence on the development and growth of Britain’s welfare state.” They ran the welfare state for themselves and did very nicely out of it. They all knew about Gwynne, Dafydd, John Walton et al and crushed anyone who dared challenge them. Some of that crowd took advantage of the services provided by Gwynne and Dafydd themselves, as did their friends. 

Richard Titmuss married a social worker Kathleen aka Kay and their daughter is Ann Rosamund Oakley (née Titmuss; born 17 January 1944), the feminist sociologist. Oakley is Professor and Founder-Director of the Social Science Research Unit at the UCL Institute of Education. Oakley is discussed in previous posts, but the Feminist Champ who is the daughter of Richard Titmuss, Umbrella for Gwynne and Dafydd, is such a laugh that I’ll briefly revisit Ann’s Life and Works here.

Ann Oakley was born in London in 1944. She was educated at Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls and Somerville College, Oxford University, Lord Piercy 1945.jpg
graduating in 1965, having married fellow future academic Robin Oakley the previous year.

In the next few years Oakley wrote scripts for children’s television and wrote numerous short stories. Returning to formal education at Bedford College, University of London, Oakley gained a PhD in 1969; Oakley’s PhD was a study of women’s attitudes to housework, from which several of her early books were derived. Bertrand Russell’s son Conrad, Earl Russell, worked at Bedford College for years. Conrad was a friend of and co-authored with Lady Antonia Fraser, who was married to first Sir Hugh Fraser, the Tory MP and then to Swearing Harold Pinter. Lady Antonia was the daughter of Lord Longford aka Frank Pakenham, who’s sister married Top Doc John Harman, Harriet’s dad. The extended Pakenham clan colluded with and concealed the criminality of Gwynne, Dafydd, Lord John Walton, the London Hospital crowd and their entire network. See ‘Comedies of Menace’. Oxford Blood By Lady Antonia Fraser

Bedford College is proud of having pioneered medical sociology, but the variety of medical sociology pioneered by Bedford was a disgrace to sociology. The entire stable of medical sociologists at Bedford were lapdogs to Gwynne, Dafydd and the Top Doctors. The most high profile Bedford College medical sociologist was Prof George Brown, who as a younger researcher had worked with Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Kenneth Rawnsley when Rawnsley was one of the Manchester Top Docs protecting the Gang. In 1964 Rawnsley relocated to Cardiff as the academic psychiatrist overseeing Training and Standards in psychiatry across the whole of Wales.12 Folded Armsx633 0 Professor George Brown became a leading medical sociologist… See eg. ‘Sex, Lies and No Democracy’.

Much of Ann Oakley’s research focused on medical sociology and women’s health.

In 1985 Oakley moved to work at the Institute of Education in London where she set up the Social Science Research Unit (SSRU). It was all happening in 1985 wasn’t it Ann?12 Folded Armsx633 0 

It was in the summer of 1985 that Samuel Brittan, brother of Home Secretary Leon, enlisted the help of Michael Grade after Samuel demanded my friend’s head on a plate after she refused to work a fiddle for Samuel in her capacity as box office manager at the Edinburgh Fringe. 

Esther established ChildLine Oxford Blood By Lady Antonia Fraserat the suggestion of Michael Grade shortly after the exchange of letters between Samuel Brittan and Michael Grade, re Samuel’s outrage at my friend’s refusal to pull a fast one for Brittan’s benefit and Grade’s reply to Samuel stressing how Shocked he was at my friend’s ‘rudeness’ and that Grade would Fix It For Samuel…

Ann Oakley has written numerous academic works, many focusing on the lives and roles of women in society as well as several best-selling novels, of which the best-known is probably The Men’s Room, which was adapted by Laura Lamson for BBC TV in 1991, which starred Harriet Walter and Bill Nighy.

In April 1991, another Wimmin’s Champ was busy in my vicinity when the Gang that was for years protected by Ann’s dad and his mates tried to have me imprisoned, yet again.

At the LSE, Donnison focused on housing and planning; he received substantial funding from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation to study the social effects of the Rent Act 1957, served on Milner Holland‘s Royal Commission on Housing in Greater London from 1965 and the Govt’s Central Housing Advisory Committee. Donnison also acted as a consultant to the UN Economic Commission for Europe. In addition, Donnison studied education and served on the Plowden Committee on Primary Education in 1967, developing the concept of Educational Priority Areas with Michael Young. From 1968 to 1970 Donnison Chaired the Public Schools Commission.

In 1969, Donnison left his Chair at LSE and worked (until 1976) as Director of the thinktank the Centre for Environmental Studies. He joined the Supplementary Benefits Commission as Deputy Chairman in 1973 and two years later took over as Chairman, serving until 1980. Donnison was appointed Professor of Town and Regional Planning at the University of Glasgow in 1980. Donnison took a keen interest in the regeneration programme for Glasgow, led the mid-term review of the GEAR project and, with Alan Middleton, edited Regenerating the Inner City: Glasgow’s Experience in 1987. At Glasgow University, Donnison also became the inaugural Co-director of the Scottish Housing Research Group in 1982.

Donnison retired in 1991 and was thereafter an Emeritus Professor and Honorary Research Fellow at Glasgow. Donnison clocked up four honorary doctorates, from the universities of Bradford (1973), Hull (1980), and Leeds and Southampton (both 1981) and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Social Policy Association in 2008.

According to his obituary in The Guardian, Donnison was “one of a group of outstanding academics who played an important part in shaping social policy during the 1960s and 70s, and, in his case, well beyond.12 Folded Armsx633 0 He remained engaged in public debate until the end of his life.” Donnison remained an advocate of marginalised groups for the rest of his life. 

In retirement, Donnison authored Policies for a Just Society (1997) and Speaking to Power: Advocacy for Health and Social Care (2009). He was also a keen windsurfer, painter, draughtsman and poet, and he took up playing in a ceilidh band. Donnison lived in Glasgow for the rest of his life, although he spent long periods of time on Easdale island. He died on 28 April 2018.

St Helena grew up in Glasgow.

David Donnison married Jean Kidger (died 2017), whom he had met at Oxford, in 1951. They separated in 1979 and he married the writer and activist Kay Carmichael (died 2009) in 1987. Kay was a psychiatric social worker who was yet another one of Richard Crossman’s advisers. Kay too was Committed To The Poor and Radical Action, knew what Gwynne and Dafydd were up to and er assisted them and their network, which of course stretched to Glasgow. See previous posts.

By his first wife, Donnison had two daughters (Rachel and Polly), two sons (Christopher and Harry) and a foster son (John), and with his second wife a step-daughter (Sheena).

One of the PhD students of Richard Titmuss’s close friend LSE Prof Brian Abel-Smith was Prof Pat Thane. Thane is a social historian who’s research area is the British welfare state. Thane is yet another Wimmin’s Champ who’s not managed to write a word about Gwynne and Dafydd for whom her PhD supervisor did so much, although Pat has waxed at length about The Poor and Wimmin’s Suffering at the hands of the Patriarchy. Like George Brown, Pat is a British Academy Fellow. See eg. ‘Sex, Lies and No Democracy’.

 

Like Peter Dunn, Ronnie Waterhouse was a St John’s College, Cambridge man and an enthusiastic member of the alumni network. After St John’s, Peter Dunn undertook training in perinatal medicine in Birmingham, San Francisco and Bristol. 

The Bryn Alyn Community or it may be Birmingham or San Francisco or indeed Bristol:

If Dafydd’s reading this blog, the spectre of the San Franciscan Baths will bring back terrible memories for him, memories that Dafydd didn’t even dare to discuss in Liverpool High Court… Much worse than the Baby Doll Nightie with nae panties and MacDuff…

Peter Dunn led Bristol University’s neonatal service, 1969-88 and was later Emeritus Professor of Perinatal Medicine and Senior Research Fellow there. So Dunn was one of the biggest names in neonatal medicine when D.G.E. Wood was a med student at Bristol; Wood’s father was a Top Doc in Bristol and will have been a contemporary of Peter Dunn.

Dunn was leading neonatal care at Bristol when I was at school in Somerset and that ring in the West Country linked to Gwynne and Dafydd’s was in operation. The HQ of the ring was in London, particularly at the London Hospital, where in the late 1960s, Prof Clifford Wilson and Sir John Rogers Ellis had been appointed to very senior roles with responsibility for organising the placements of junior docs throughout the south of England and in the West Country. Their organising mate in Taunton was Brian Wykeham Webb and Peter Dunn in Bristol had a number of senior colleagues who were part of the ring.

Peter Dunn was busy Top Doctoring in Bristol – which meant lording it over the Top Docs throughout Somerset – in 1973-74, when there was a lunch at the Clarence between Thatch and someone who campaigned for Tom King.

Dunn will have known Dr Death, the MP for Plymouth Sutton, 1966-Feb 1974 and Plymouth Devonport, Feb 1974-1992. Plymouth was Death’s home town and Nancy Astor, mother of Lord Bill of the Profumo Affair, held a seat in Plymouth earlier in the 20th century. In spite of Nancy Astor’s presence, Plymouth was dominated by Footie’s family, a legal and political dynasty who were Liberal and Labour.

Footie’s dad Issac was a lawyer and a Liberal MP. Footie’s brother Dingle Foot was a Balliol graduate a la Grocer Heath, Woy and Denis Healey and a member of Gray’s Inn a la Mars-Jones. Dingle served as a Liberal and then Labour MP and Harold Wilson’s Solicitor General, 1964-67. Dingle was called to the Bar or admitted as a solicitor or practitioner in the following countries Ghana (1948), Sri Lanka (1951), Northern Rhodesia (1956), Sierra Leone (1959), Supreme Court of India (as a Senior Advocate) (1960), Bahrain (1962) and Malaysia (1964). He also appeared regularly in the Courts of Kenya, Uganda, Tanganyika, Nyasaland and Pakistan. In addition, Dingle had been regularly engaged in the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council since 1945. Dingle died in June 1978, very shortly before Mr Thrope was charged with conspiracy to murder, having choked on a chicken bone in an hotel in Hong Kong. In the 1940s and 50s, Dingle frequently appeared on TV with Footie and Bob Boothby.

Footie’s brother Hugh was Lord Caradon, Governor of Cyprus and British Ambassador to the UN and father of the investigative journo Paul Foot

Other brothers were John (Lord Foot)  and Christopher, a solicitor who joined the family firm. There were also two sisters.

See ‘The Bay Of Pigs Invasion’ for details of the huge Foot dynasty and their friends, most of whom colluded with Gwynne, Dafydd et al…

The Foots, like Dr Death and Wedgie-Benn, boasted of the Nonconformist background and values. But then so did most of Gwynne and Dafydd’s circle.

Footie knew a great deal about Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang and used the services that they provided. Footie’s friend and biographer was Mervyn Jones, son of the Welsh psychiatrist Ernest Jones. Ernest was responsible for introducing Freud’s theories to the UK. Ernest knew Gwynne, Dafydd and Wilfred and Leo Abse. Ernest managed to kill his first wife Morfydd when he performed DIY abdominal surgery on Morfydd in her parents house in south Wales; they had been married for only a year. Ernest acquired another wife whom he found far less of a pain that Morfydd. Ernest was a pal of Freud but they did fall out over Ernest’s conduct towards Freud’s daughter Anna, who was years younger than Ernest. It all ended well though, everyone went into analysis with everyone else to Resolve Matters.

Ernest was a friend of the Welsh schoolteacher, novelist and Plaid activist ‘with lesbian tendencies’ Kate Roberts who married a fellow Plaid activist, a gay man. They moved to Denbigh  as a young couple; Kate’s gay husband died when he was still quite young, leaving Kate a widow who pursued a lifelong friendship with Dafydd and Gwynne. See ‘Feet In Chains’.

Ernest Jones knew James and Alix Strachey, relations of Clough and Amabel, who produced the definitivate translation of Freud’s works and were two leading figures in analysis in the UK.

Once D.G.E. Wood – a big fan of Dr Death – had parked himself in the Student Health Centre at UCNW, Dunn will have had a hotline to UCNW, an institution rung By Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang, where Gwynne sat in the Student Health Centre after he had ‘retired’ from Denbigh. Wood was also a GP in Bangor and being essential to the trafficking ring, 17 Marlenex633 0held increasingly senior roles in the Royal College of GPs, until he was responsible for just about everything re General Practice across the whole of north Wales. Wood went nation-wide after that and served as the Treasurer for the Royal College of GPs.

Frank Bough formerly of ‘Nationwide’, kicked out of the BBC for partying with prostitutes and cocaine, while Savile remained:

John Rogers Ellis was an old Oundle School boy and was part of the tight ex-Oundle network who knew Bertrand Russel and Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and were Of Dafydd and Gwynne. That group of ex-Oundle boys were of a very similar age and included Harriet Harman’s dad, the Dean of the Maudsley David Lewis Davies, Sir Kenneth Robinson, big wig of MIND and Harold Wilson’s Minister of Health, Micky Wynn aka Lord Newborough and William Trethowan, Top Doc who in the early 1970s was one of the GMC panel who decided that Belfast-based paedophile child psychiatrist Dr Morris Fraser was fine to continue practising after he had been convicted of sexually assaulting a child. Fraser left Belfast for the mainland and obtained jobs at UCL and Springfield Hospital, the psych unit attached to St George’s.

Trethowan’s family virtually ran Guy’s Hospital. His dad was a well-known orthopaedic surgeon who was a Guy’s man and his mum qualified as a Top Doc from Guy’s at the same time as William Trethowan, when, as a middle aged Posh Lady, she thought that it would be fun to read medicine alongside her son. I’d love to know the details of the arrangement because Mrs Trethowan won’t have fitted the entry criteria in any way…

Robert Owen, the Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Liverpool University and the Medical Ombudsman for Wales who on behalf of the Welsh Office organised the 1989 ‘Independent Professional Review’ into my complaint about the Gang that was Chaired by Bluglass, trained at Guy’s and was still on excellent terms with them there. Sister Hutt’s dad was the Prof of Pathology at Guy’s in the 1970s and 80s. Uncle Harry was a Prof at Guy’s at the same time.

It was written in the stars that William Trethowan would be a huge figure in medicine. This is what the Royal College of Physicians Munk’s Roll Lives of the Fellows online says about Trethowan:

William Henry (Sir) Trethowan

b.3 June 1917 d.15 December 1995
Kt(1980) CBE(1975) MB BChir Cantab(1943) MRCS LRCP(1943) MRCP(1948) DPM(1950) FRACP(1961) FRCP(1963) Hon FANZCP(1965) FRCPsych(1971) Hon DSc Chinese University of Hong Kong(1979) Hon FRCPsych(1983)

Bill Trethowan was one of the most influential British psychiatrists of the last half century. Trained at Cambridge and Guy’s, he served in the RAMC during the war, reaching the rank of major. After passing the MRCP examination in 1948 he chose to specialize in psychiatry at the Maudsley, had a spell at Harvard Medical School and returned to an academic post at the University of Manchester. In 1956 he was appointed to the chair of psychiatry in Sydney and here he showed his flair for organization. On arrival he found the state of mental health services in New South Wales “appalling” (his own description) and immediately set about to improve them, with outstanding success. Almost single-handedly he rewrote the Mental Health Act and by the time he left six years later he had established a formidable reputation as a clinician, teacher and administrator.

In 1962 he was attracted back to Britain to become the first full time professor of psychiatry at the University of Birmingham. Once more within a few years he transformed the clinical service and teaching in psychiatry.

Trethowan attracted one Robert Bluglass to Birmingham.

He started a senior registrar rotational training scheme in the Midlands which proved extremely popular and his own lectures and teaching sessions were erudite, witty and inspirational. Amongst other things, he encouraged part time training in psychiatry and he must have taken great pride in the selection of one of his part time trainees to the presidency of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. Trethowan served as dean of Birmingham Medical School from 1968 to 1974.

The years when Bluglass was identified as a future Leader Of The Profession…

Research was not his forte,

So he won’t have been able to supervise the research of all of those stellar trainee psychiatrists in his team

although he published quite widely. He collected and wrote about psychiatric rarities and his special interest was in the relationship between mental illness and musical creativity. His organizational ability and sharp but sensible contributions to debate led to his recruitment to many influential posts and committees, locally in the medical school and regional health authority,

Birmingham Medical School and the Regional Health Authority were already in partnership with Gwynne and Dafydd

in the newly-formed Royal College of Psychiatrists as senior examiner and nationally as consultant adviser in psychiatry to the DHSS, chairman of the Standing Mental Health Advisory Committee and Central Health Services Council, amongst others.

Yet another layer of protection for Gwynne and Dafydd.

He chaired the steering committee that led to the establishment of a medical school at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He was appointed CBE in 1975 and knighted in 1980.

Mary Wynch was illegally imprisoned in 1979 and Trethowan’s mate Bluglass was tasked with rewriting the Mental Health Act in the early 1980s to ensure that It Couldn’t Happen Again. It did, with me, three years after Bluglass’s Mental Health Act 1983. Bluglass investigated and declared Dafydd to be a caring man who had been subjected to intolerable harassment by me. 

All of this, with appropriate adjustments, could describe the career of any distinguished and senior medical academic in Britain, but it reflects little of Bill’s outstanding personal characteristics. He was tall and big (a euphemism for rotund), serious, rather intimidating until you got to know him.

A Gentle Giant with a Heart Of Gold!

“Saturnine”, “dark and brooding” were applied to him by others.

‘Wicked corrupt people-trafficking bastard’ was applied by me.

In its obituary The Times described a probably apocryphal story of his dismissal of an angry horde of medical students who had gathered on the steps of the medical school in 1968 “simply by his imposing presence and the use of two words – both short”.

So what were they protesting about? Med students are idealistic and they do pipe up at what they perceive as outrages until they are told to F off or they won’t be docs…

When you got beneath this rather austere exterior, there was the real Bill Trethowan – charming, warm, clever, witty, entertaining, delightful company.

Drunken old fool who was a regular at Top Docs’ dinners.

Music was Bill’s great passion, with a surprising emphasis on jazz. At Cambridge he was the musical director of the Footlights and he composed the music for the 1938 May Week revue, Pure and Simple, and for a BBC production of Little Miss Rosalind, a musical comedy based on As You Like It.

I get the picture.

Both were highly praised. He was a renowned pianist and trumpeter, playing Bach as well as jazz. Had he so wished he could no doubt have had a successful career in music; he had, in fact, enrolled at Cambridge for a music degree and for a time studied orchestration and conducting at the Royal College of Music. He also ran a professional dance band.

Massive network in the part of High Society that it has now become clear was tied in with exploitation of students, young musicians etc.

His marriage to Pamela Waters, an actress and singer whom he married in 1941, was singularly happy and they both flourished in Australia where Pam produced plays and they established a legendary reputation as hosts. This carried over into their Birmingham years. They had two daughters and a son. In later life Bill built electronic organs in his spare time and enhanced his interest in food by becoming an expert cook. He suffered serious depression after Pam’s death, but found new happiness in a second marriage to Heather Dalton (née Gardiner).

Trethowan wined and dined with the finest luvvies.

 

Trethowan was Chairman of the GMC fitness to practice panel that allowed the paedophile child psychiatrist from Belfast Dr Morris Fraser to continue practicing after sexually assaulting a child in the US in the early 1970s; Trethowan was Dean of Birmingham Medical School at the time.  Fraser treated children at the Kincora Boys’ Home, the centre of a VIP paedophile ring in N Ireland, with which Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang were linked. After being allowed to continue to practice, Fraser relocated to mainland Britain and worked at UCL – Marjorie Wallace’s husband Andrew Skarbek worked at UCL – and Springfield Hospital, the psych unit attached to St George’s. 

The MDU barrister who worked on Fraser’s GMC hearing was Paddy Mayhew, who later served as John Major’s N Ireland Secretary. Paddy was promoted to that role by John Major after serving as Attorney-General under Thatch and then Major, 13 June 1987-10 April 1992. Paddy was the AG who approved every prosecution of me in the High Court for contempt during 1990 and 1991 although he knew that perjury was committed in every case, including by the MDU barristers. Paddy was appointed as AG some four weeks before the Gang expected me to be carted off to Risley Remand Centre as a result of their Cunning Plan hatched during 1986-87. Paddy was a Balliol graduate, as was Grocer Heath, Denis Healey and Woy. A member of Middle Temple, like Ronnie Waterhouse and Greville Janner, Paddy was the MP for Tunbridge Wells and served as Thatch’s Solicitor General, June 1983-June 1987, when Lord Havers as AG was blocking the prosecution of VIP paedophiles. Paddy was elevated to the Lords in 1997, when Ronnie’s Inquiry was underway.

Paddy’s son Tristram is the founder of the adventure company ‘Go Ape’, which has a substantial presence in north east Wales.

David Enoch, William Trethowan’s co-author re those Uncommon Psychiatric Syndromes, also wrote this:

So where is Spiritual Guru the psychiatrist David Enoch based? Tibet? Bhutan? Er, no. He’s in Cardiff. The 2008 spiel for David Enoch provided by Amazon reads ‘Dr David Enoch is a distinguished consultant psychiatrist based in Cardiff. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, a former Senior Consultant Psychiatrist to the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and is President of the Evangelization Society.’

In 2016 when Gwynne and Dafydd’s dreadful colleagues were holding yet another of the endless pompous debates in the media – it’s all rather Wendy’s Battle With The Male Medical Establishment, a load of abusers of the same network firing pot shots at each other in order to convince the plebs that there is intelligent life among them rather than just a criminal cartel – ‘The Guardian’ published a letter from David Enoch, which supplies the names of yet more criminals in the network:

Richard Bentall’s continual, excessive criticism of the “medical approach”, and hence of psychiatrists (medical doctors), unlike clinical psychologists (who are not medical doctors), only serves to cause further stigmatisation of mental illness and fear in people needing psychiatric treatment. His views are summed up in his contention: “A narrow medical approach has been extraordinarily unsuccessful, despite what many people assume.” I do not assume, but declare, from 60 years as a physician in psychological medicine, that the medical approach has been extraordinarily successful. I experienced the old regime of the 1940s and then was privileged to live in a golden era of psychiatry, when there was a pharmacological revolution with the discovery of very successful antipsychotic, antidepressant and anti-anxiety drugs and the establishment of very effective “talking cures”. We also embraced the social aspects revealed to us by Julian Leff and Laing. Associated with these advances was a new attitude and optimism, which led to the emptying of the asylums.

Clinical psychologists came later. I helped to form the clinical psychology course in Liverpool with Dr Slade. I noted that initially they carried out psychological testing, but later, after the introduction of cognitive behavioural therapy by psychiatrists, they undertook more of this work. It is important for the public to know that, when patients are referred to psychiatrists, they are being referred to medical doctors who will deal with the physical, psychological and social aspects, whereas, when they are referred to clinical psychologists, the physical aspects are not dealt with and no drug treatment can be prescribed.

Emeritus consultant physician in psychological medicine, Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Cardiff

The Dr Slade to whom Enoch refers is Prof Pauline Slade. Pauline’s profile can be found on Liverpool University’s website:

My research interests focus on psychological processes in reproductive health with a current emphasis on perinatal mental health. However the ambit covers psychological aspects from menarche to menopause and all phases of reproductive health between. My focus is on understanding adaptation to adverse events and difficulty and also in developing effective interventions and workable systems of care to improve mental health and wellbeing.
There are 4 strands to my work 1) understanding how psychological factors such as attachment patterns and interpersonal processes may influence perception of and response to trauma in relation to childbirth and its associated difficulties 2) considering how we can best prepare women and couples psychologically for childbirth and the transition to parenthood 3) developing ways of training health professionals to identify psychological distress and deliver simple psychological care in the service context and 4) an interest in the experiences of care givers working in potentially traumatic circumstances.
These areas all require close liaison with staff in health care services and service user groups. I am also a consultant clinical psychologist and continue to be involved in clinical service provision . Some of my research is driven initially from theoretical perspective and whilst other work develops from direct clinical observations.
I am currently involved or have completed joint projects with Universities of Sheffield, Nottingham, UCLAN and Leicester and service user groups such as the Birth Trauma Association.
I am strongly associated with the British Psychological Society Perinatal Faculty and the International Society for Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology. The latter involves links with 18 countries via, their national groupings of psychologists and medical and nursing specialists involved in reproductive health care.

Like Spiritual Mark Williams, Dr Enoch (and his side-kick Pauline) are part of a massive people trafficking ring. If you have an explanation as to how Gwynne, Dafydd and George Thomas fit into your Spirituality and New Approach since the Bad Old Days Dr Enoch, let me know and I’ll post your reply up on the blog.17 Marlenex633 0

 

Sir Joe Simpson, the bent copper and member of Gray’s Inn who was Commissioner of the Met, Sept 1958-March 1968, was also an old Oundle boy who was one of the crowd around Gwynne and Dafydd. Joe died in office at the age of 58, ‘his death brought on by stress’. Fings Break as Joe knew. Joe was probably shot dead in ‘The Blind Beggar’ by Dafydd but no-one will have seen a thing, Lord Bob Winston completed the death certificate and wrote ‘STRESS’ as cause of death and Barbara Windsor has developed Alzheimers so she no longer remembers it anyway.

Sir Peter Scott of the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust of Slimbridge fame, the son of Scott of the Antarctic, was another one of that Oundle crowd. Scott  served as Chancellor of Birmingham University, 1973-83, when Robert Bluglass ruled the roost at Birmingham Medical School and in the wider NHS in Birmingham. Peter Scott died ‘from a heart attack’ on 29 Aug 1989, just a few days after Bluglass sent his Report that resulted from him Chairing the July 1989 hearing into my complaint about the Gang to Clwyd and Gwynedd Health Authorities and a copy to the Welsh Office as well. Bluglass confirmed that although Dafydd’s Clinical Standards Must Be Raised, Dafydd and the rest of the Gang were Caring People who could not be expected to put up with Constant Harassment from me. Furthermore I was probably going to End In A Ward For the Criminally Insane and Dafydd thought that was a Chilling Observation.

Bluglass must have been clairvoyant because while he was Chairing that hearing in July 1989, Tony Francis was arranging a Case Conference about me, that took place towards the end of 1989. The Case Conference was Chaired by Dr Chris Hunter – a friend of Bluglass, Dafydd and Tony Francis – and Evidence about my Dangerousness was given to Chris by people of whom I had never heard. Not that I’d ever heard of Chris Hunter either. Or even knew that the Case Conference was taking place, because I was busy in London at the time, working at St George’s for Wendy’s mate Bodger and Bodger’s colleague Malcolm Pearce, being insulted and mistreated by Bodger’s mates. Chris Hunter concluded that I was Very Dangerous with a Homicidal Capacity – Bluglass had ‘mentioned’ that ‘informally’ himself to Bodger’s colleague Dr Robin Jacobson at Springfield Hospital in Dec 1990 – and stated that I should be sent to live with Mr Savile, in a ward for the Criminally Insane. Chris offered to write a Report for the Court recommending this, although I wasn’t facing any charges at the time. Although obviously I soon was, because the Gang perjured themselves yet again and I was taken to the High Court within weeks…

I did not make any complaints about Tony Francis to Bluglass but nonetheless Bluglass invited Tony Francis to Give Evidence. I had no knowledge of that until I read Bluglass’s Report and there was the Evidence from Francis…

Immediately before relocating to north Wales in 1983, Tony and Sadie Francis had worked in Manchester. Tony’s boss had been Ian Brockington, who, within two years or so of the Drs Francis leaving Manchester, accepted the offer of a Chair at Birmingham Medical School, alongside Bluglass and Bluglass’s wife Kerry, another psychiatrist. See ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’.

I did not make any complaints about D.G.E. Wood to Bluglass, but many years later I discovered that Wood had rung Prof Robert Owen, the Welsh Office’s Medical Ombudsman who organised the Independent Professional Review Chaired by Bluglass, at Robert Owen’s home in Colwyn Bay and had even sent unknown ‘information’ about me to Owen at his home address. D.G.E. Wood was no longer my GP and had not been for some years.

In the 1990s, the Fallon Inquiry into the abuse of patients on Lawrence Ward at Ashworth Hospital utilised the skills of Robert Bluglass as a member of the Inquiry Panel. Lawrence Ward was established and managed by Chris Hunter and was full of the Gang’s victims. Bluglass’s job was to investigate the murder of a patient by the Angels of the POA. Bluglass was assisted by two Senior Angels of his selection; one was a Senior Angel who worked for Bluglass at Bluglass’s ‘clinic’ (ie. a secure unit) in Birmingham, the other was a Senior Angel from Clwyd Health Authority who worked for er Dafydd.

The conclusion of the Fallon Inquiry was that ‘shocking’ and ‘outrageous’ things had happened on Lawrence Ward, including child porn shared by Angels and patients, a child in the care of Bradford Social Services being taken into the Ward to ‘visit a paedophile’, sexual assaults and a porn business. It was all the fault of the Dangerous Nutters living within, including the death of the Dangerous Nutter who had been murdered by the Angels of the POA.

The Fallon Inquiry made no comment re the Angels of the POA being members of the National Front, their slashing of the tyres of the Top Docs’ cars, their firebombing of the Top Docs’ cars, their fist fights with the clinical psychologist who was responsible for giving the Dangerous Nutters Anger Management sessions and their constant beatings and sexual assaults of the Dangerous Nutters.

Lest anyone hasn’t got the gist yet: Ashworth was the centre of a big paedophile/sex abuse ring that was RUN BY DAFYDD. The Dangerous Nutters were victims of the ring who had refused to shut up. The POA were Dafydd’s henchmen, they ran Ashworth and the other Top Docs and clin psys were really fucking frightened of them. No-one would sack and prosecute the bastards because they knew who those patients were in Ashworth and which VIPs had sexually assaulted them…

The POA at Broadmoor served exactly the same function and they too were uncontrollable and in addition, stealing huge quantities of dosh from the NHS and Home Office. That is why Jimmy Savile was appointed General Manager of Broadmoor after having been appointed to the management task force of Broadmoor by Thatch’s Health Minister Trumpers. See ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Health Services In The 1980s’. Savile told Thatch that he would contain the POA by blackmailing them and Edwina Currie, a Health Minister at the time, thought that this was ‘a pretty classy piece of operation’. Edwina, who had early in her career served as a Birmingham Councillor, was the MP for a Derbyshire constituency on the site of a big ring directly linked with the Gang in north Wales and who admitted, both in her diary and to third parties, that she and many other MPs knew that Peter Morrison was sexually abusing children… See ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’. Other MPs who’s constituencies were in Derbyshire included the Beast of Bolsover, Margaret Beckett and her caravan and, from 1983, Wedgie-Benn. The Labour Party moved mountains to bag Wedgie-Benn the seat for Chesterfield as discussed in previous posts.

 

Peter Scott was an ornithologist and had numerous links with the biologists and UCNW and their network. Scott was a version of a David Attenborough, Attenborough who’s father Frederick had been Principal of what became Leicester University in the days of the embryonic ring in Leicester that grew to such dreadful proportions in the 1960s and 70s, greatly assisted by Leicester University, in particular the Dean of Leicester Medical School, Lord Robert Kilpatrick, a Scottish Top Doctor from Fife who had excellent links with St Andrew’s University. Kilpatrick was headhunted by the GMC to succeeded Lord John Walton as Chairman in 1989, when the police investigation into Frank Beck and Greville Janner in Leicester happened upon the Top Docs who facilitated their activities, including Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate James Earp.

Peter Scott was a mate of Phil the Greek and was one of the founders of the WWF. In WW II, Scott served with the RNVR, a la Bodger, Edward du Cann etc, while Gwynne, Bingley, Mountbatten et al served in the Royal Navy.

Steam Gun Boat, SGB S309, under the command of Lieutenant Commander Peter Scott:

Sir Peter Scott was another person who was loathed by my grandfather in addition to Gwynne and Dafydd’s man in the City Edward du Cann, the MP for Taunton, 1956-87, when Peter Dunn et al were busy. I never knew why grandpa had a thing about Peter Scott but he really hated him. He didn’t denounce him as a crook a la du Cann or make dark references to his ‘immorality’ a la The Liberal Party, but he hated Peter Scott so much that Slimbridge was Blacklisted in terms of Days Out With Grandpa. Before my grandfather had his stroke, he was very good at doing the days out with the grandchildren bit; they tended to be Educational Visits to museums, castles, archaeological sites, Cricket St Thomas or pantos at Christmas, but it was made very clear that we would never ever be going to Slimbridge. It was quite a mystery to me because the schools in Somerset and the BBC were very keen on Sir Peter Scott and I’d see him on Blue Peter etc and there’d be books/newsletters etc about Peter Scott and Slimbridge at school and I’d be thinking ‘Oh that’s the man that grandpa hates’.

I really am beginning to wonder if my grandfather knew about the organised abuse re children in the West Country. I always took his mutterings about Immorality to be a reference to the Westminster Swinging among adults, particularly after Mr Thrope found himself on trial at the Old Bailey, but a lot of the people for whom my grandfather had what was claimed by others as an irrational hatred were part of Gwynne and Dafydd’s network. Grandpa’s activities with Oswald Mosley in the 1930s will have meant that he knew John Strachey, Sir Clough’s brother-in-law. Strachey was an extreme Westminster Swinger, a gay partner of Lord Bob Boothby and they didn’t come more Swinging than Bob Boothby.

My post ‘A Celebration of Dafydd’s Medical Training’ discussed Boothby, his taste for rent boys, relationships with Dorothy Macmillan and Ronnie Kray and his central role in the ring and associated organised crime facilitated by Savage and her mates at the London Hospital. Boothby shagging members of the Royal Family and Dorothy Macmillan was what made the Krays untouchable for so long. Joe Simpson conjured up a whole variety of excuses as to why he couldn’t get them, but the Gov’t and Royal Ugandan discussions were the real reason and of course Joe Simpson was at the party himself.

Bob Boothby was Rector of St Andrew’s University, 1958-61. Bluglass qualified at St Andrews in the late 50s and worked there and in Dundee (grads from St Andrew’s worked rotas in Dundee as well) as a junior doc before he had relocated to Birmingham by the early 1970s.

Little wonder that there was the Shock Horror Scandal about Ronnie Kray Living It Up In Broadmoor in the 1980s and how the Angels of the POA were calling him Mr Kray Sir and Ronnie was enjoying all sorts of privileges whereas other patients were being battered, raped and murdered by the Angels. Bluglass, Dafydd et al ran Broadmoor, Ashworth and Rampton and Ronnie was Of Them, he was mates with their mates and the Krays were the henchmen for the serious organised crime in London that was facilitated by Top Docs, lawyers and the judiciary. Bluglass was probably the person sending the Fortnum and Mason hampers into Ronnie in Broadmoor. Jimmy Savile tucked in as well, Savile the friend of Gwynne, Dafydd and Top Docs after being so ably helped by Trumpers in 1987. Trumpers, who got into Parliament when Thatch gave her a peerage in 1980, post-Mr Thrope and Mary Wynch.

Trumpers had been a big wig in the Cambridge Tories and was mates with all the right people, including Rab Butler and Tuppence and his Fragrant Wife. Even more importantly, Trumpers was Very Posh, had socialised with Princesses Brenda and Ma’am Darling when they were children and was married to Alan Barker, who had taught at Eton and then become Headmaster of The Leys School in Cambridge and then University College School in Hampstead. Among Barkers many pupils at University College School were Harold Wilson’s sons and at Eton, Douglas Hurd. Hurd and Barker were ‘very fond’ of each other and Trumpers freely admitted that Barker’s influence on Hurd secured her political roles.

Hurd was Home Secretary, 2 Sept 1985-26 Oct 1989, throughout the years of outrageous crime on the part of the Gang. Hurd’s uncle was the Cambridge botanist Edred Corner, a friend of Prof Peter Greig-Smith at UCNW, who worked with Wood’s wife and the rest of the Gang. See previous posts, including ‘Additional Security Measures’.

Hurd worked for the security services. One of the British security services favourite recruiting grounds for decades was New College, Oxford, it was where Tony Benn was recruited by them. Richard Crossman was recruited at New College and became a recruiter when he was a don at New College. Trumpers’ autobiography mentions that when Barker was at New College, Crossman called him in for an interview, told Barker that Crossman thought that he’d make a good MP and asked him which Party he’d like to represent. Accounts of politicians’ biographies from that era make it very clear that for many of them, ideology and beliefs didn’t enter into the equation, it was a matter of being a posh person and Ooh how fascinating, you’re a Communist/Tory/Liberal/Labour whatever. It was how people like Woodrow Wyatt managed to be a Labour MP but a good mate of Thatch, Bertrand Russell, the Digger and the Queen Mum Gawd Bless ‘Er, or indeed how Oswald Mosley served as a Labour MP, established another sort of Labour Party and then became a fascist.

Barker never did become an MP, but he was known to have been Very Supportive Of His Wife’s Career. Lady Trumpington with some of her fellow peersBarker of the security services with the dangerous idiot of a wife who was mates with Jimmy Savile and had to quietly resign as a Cambridge magistrate when it was discovered that she was mates with the Cambridge Rapist as well.

Never mind, turn Trumpers into a Light Entertainment Star and stress that she’s Posh and was at Bletchley Park with Alan Turing.

Ian Hislop and Lady Trumpington

Although my grandfather never expanded upon the Immorality of The Liberal Party in my presence, when I was about nine and used to go out and about on my bike, he once remarked ‘If ever a man Bothers You, you must say go away or I’ll call a policeman’. It’s theoretically sound but doesn’t work in the case of Joe Simpson or indeed the North Wales Police. I know, I sort of tried the Grown Up version of it and I was arrested myself. Repeatedly. I heard one of my friends giving exactly the same advice to his granddaughter a few months ago and once she had left the room we had the conversation of ‘What the hell do we do, we know that she might not actually be helped if she does that but we can’t tell an 11 year old that some police officers are the problem themselves…’ 

 

Peter Dunn was the founder, in 1975 and Inaugural President, 1980-84, of the British Association of Perinatal Medicine and was a consultant to the World Health Organization, 1970-90.

Meet Joe Simpson boys and girls:

Research into congenital hip dislocation, led to Peter Dunn being awarded the British Orthopaedic Association’s Gold Medal and for work on foetal adaptation to extrauterine life he received the De Snoo-van’t Hoogerhuigs Medal and Prize. Dunn was the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health’s James Spence Medalist for 2001. 

 

The website of the British Society for the History of Child Health and Paediatrics features Peter as a past President of that Society:

Emeritus Professor Peter M. Dunn, 2002-2004

Born in Birmingham, Peter was educated at Marlborough College and Cambridge University (St John’s College). After graduating in medicine in 1954 he served with the Goorkhar Rifles before returning to posts in Birmingham and settling in Bristol ultimately as the Director of the Academic Neonatal Service, University of Bristol. He was appointed to a Personal Chair in Perinatal Medicine and Child Health, University of Bristol, in 1987.

In May 1987, Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane released Ollie Brooke on appeal.

and attained extensive British and International awards for his work and publications. These numbered more than 400 publications mainly on perinatal medicine including 120 on the history of medicine, contributed to 123 medical reports including preparation of the BPA/RCOG ‘Recommendations for the improvement of Infant Care during the Perinatal Period in the UK’ (1978). He was the instigator and activist in establishing this Society.

 

History of Medicine became a subject that suddenly attracted the interest of many Top Doctors rather than historians when the police investigations into the big organised abuse rings began in the late 1980s/1990s. I noticed it with Denbigh, I and other Empowered Service Users rolled around laughing at what was being written about the History Of Psychiatry In North Wales by employees of Bangor University who had spent years in denial and were mates with the Gang. It was only when I began researching for this blog that I discovered that the phenomenon reached further than Denbigh; Dafydd’s mates at Manchester had a brilliant time rewriting their own history (see eg. The Science Of Animal Behaviour’). The Manchester crowd and their historian colleague John V. Pickstone even managed to get Prof Roy Porter on board with their ‘It Never Happened’ project.

Prof Roy Porter – who really was an historian rather than a Top Doctor sanitising the practices of his or her older and senior colleagues – had sort of avoided mentioning a few embarrassing things. Roy Porter was truly impressive if one is interested in the history of medicine, he was the ultimate guru. Not long after the Waterhouse Report was published, Roy Porter suddenly and unexpectedly took early retirement from his job as Director of the Wellcome Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL, relocated to Sussex and er died suddenly and unexpectedly as well.

In terms of Top Doctors of influence in the West Country, Hugh Jolly, the paediatrician who become the childcare guru of choice in the 1970s was one such Top Doc during the 1950s before Jolly became one of the most famous Top Docs in the UK. When Jolly was practising in the West Country, he was based in Plymouth but his patch extended right across Devon and Somerset. Jolly was just about the only paediatrician working in the region at the time and he knew about the extraordinary things going on in hospitals in Devon and Somerset at the time. Jolly also knew about Mr Thrope and other VIP molesters of Devon and Somerset as discussed previously on the blog. Jolly was the son of a clergyman, so he’ll have been in on the Secrets Of The Dirty Vicars as well. I have only just clicked that Jolly almost certainly became famous because of his knowledge of that, it certainly wasn’t because of Jolly’s outstanding clinical practice.

I have been researching the Top Docs who were part of Jolly’s network when he wasn’t the only paediatrician in Devon and Somerset and as ever, it is terrifying and leads to those we know and love. I intend to cover it in another post soon…

Jolly died in March 1986, the month before my friend Anne was killed by the Gang. See the source image

When I was a teenager I was told by an Insider that the psychiatrists practising in the West Country ‘Were all mad and they all kill themselves’. Angels and Top Docs outside of mental health have a great propensity for making such statements about psychiatrists, indeed psychiatrists are acutely aware of it, but the unfortunate thing is that there is much truth in it. The standard line used to be that the craziness and high suicide rate among psychiatrists was a result of them spending too much time with Dangerous Nutters, Getting Involved and thus being driven insane themselves. It is now accepted that there is another explanation. It is never admitted in public, although Prof Tom Burns of Oxford University told me in 1989/90 when he was still working at St George’s: ‘Psychiatry attracts disturbed people and it causes big problems’.

Top docs and med students chat to each other about how mad, incompetent and lazy psychiatrists are, but the one thing they daren’t openly discuss is that huge numbers of them are facilitating organised abuse and that this has been happening for a very, very long time. It is why research has consistently shown that med students do not want to go into psychiatry no matter how the pay and conditions are amended to make it attractive or how many Cutting Edge New Centres are built. Med students who are interested in psychiatry before they undertake their psych placements change their mind afterwards. Med students really do run away screaming from psychiatry and it is because of the serious criminality of which they receive a glimpse.

Various authors, off-beat people and the occasional sociologist who when they were down on their luck ‘worked in a mental hospital’ for a bit of extra dosh have however noted with surprising frequency that when they ‘made friends with the patients’ they found out that some of the more florid delusions of the patients, including those of the patients having sex with the doctors or famous people, were er true. It isn’t rocket science to work out that if Jimmy Savile et al want to force people to have sex with them as well as an assortment of animals they need to find captives with no choice who will not be believed if they tell anyone. Kids in care, kids in custody, psych patients, disabled kids or young people. It is a tried and tested method.

Obviously if one meets a psych patient who is expressing unusual ideas who also tells one that they are having sex with Ted Heath in Satanic Orgies, one has to think carefully before accepting that as the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, but the volume of complaints about Gwynne, Dafydd et al in north Wales, their regularity and the similarity of those complaints were such that it was a nonsense for anyone knowing about even just some of them to suggest that ‘this can’t be believed’.

What is happening to some Empowered Service Users is so extraordinary that even other Empowered Service Users themselves can disbelieve it. I have given examples in previous posts of anecdotes from Empowered ones that I did not believe, only to find out later that they had been telling the truth and not exaggerating any part of their account. Empowered ones in north Wales with whom I ended up becoming very friendly told me that when they first met me, they didn’t believe that I had worked with Docs in London who knew Harley Street docs who were flogging Thatch Class A drugs, they presumed that I was ill and this was a symptom…

Some people became so aware that they could do anything, anything at all to Empowered Service Users and the only reaction in the face of complaint would be an en masse How Very Dare You that extreme liberties have been take

Two other Top Docs with strong University College of Dublin associations are Dr Brian Gibbons of Serious Organised Crime, Welsh Gov’t Health Minister, Jan 2005-May 2007:

Professor Anthony Clare, Prof of Psychological Medicine at Bart’s when Wendy Was Under Attack From The Male Medical Establishment:

Prof Clare penned thoughtful articles on the Crisis In Medicine as exemplified by the row over Wendy, while Clare knew exactly what it was all about. Anthony Clare withdrew from all media work suddenly and unexpectedly in the early 1990s, left London and returned to working as a Top Doc in Dublin. From then on Anthony Clare led a low profile existence and died suddenly and unexpectedly in Paris from a heart attack on 28 Oct 2007. Before Brian Gibbons stepped down as Welsh Gov’t Health Minister in May 2007, I sent him details of serious organised crime in the NHS and Social Services in north Wales and he sent me a reply saying that this correspondence is now over. Miranda stepped down as PM on 27 June 2007, after his staff had hacked my e mails and the brother-in-law of his policy adviser had stolen my computer. Miranda was going to hang around as PM for a bit longer but he suddenly zoomed off, using that job offer arranged by George Dubya Bush as the Middle East Peace Envoy as an excuse.

Emeritus Professor Euan Ross, 2016-2018

Professor Ross seems to have largely disappeared from the internet, but I have found information about him with regard to his role as a now resigned Director of two charidees. Prof EUAN MACDONALD ROSS is a Professor Of Community Paediatrics from Harrow, Middlesex. My Posh Relative by marriage, Gnome’s widow Veronica lives in Harrow. Euan Ross was born in December 1937. Ross was a Director of CLIC – CANCER AND LEUKAEMIA IN CHILDHOOD and Movement for Non-Mobile Children ‘WHIZZ-KIDS’, a most appropriate name for a charidee in which one of Dafydd’s network was involved.

‘Mind how you go Sir.’ 

Prof Ross co-authored this 2001 volume (note the Caring Hand Holding):

Children are different. They are not just ‘small adults’ but are growing and changing all the time – a fact that must not be forgotten or ignored when children are ill. This new textbook of paediatrics offers a unique approach that takes the age of children into account. It is divided into two separate and distinct parts: Section 1 deals with children at various ages – from before birth through adolescence – and studies the normal growing child and common illnesses, using a symptom-based approach; Section 2 provides a mini encyclopaedia of paediatric disorders, their aetiology, incidence, clinical presentation, diagnosis and management. Cross references provide the necessary links between the two parts to avoid repetition.

Here’s a volume edited by Euan, published in 1984, the Year Of Gwynne:

Paediatric Perspectives on Epilepsy, 1984 - Ross, Euan (Editor)

Paediatric Perspectives on Epilepsy Edited by Euan Ross, Charing Cross Hospital, London, UK and Edward Reynolds, King’s College Hospital, London, UK.

Both Charing Cross and King’s College were facilitating organised abuse. Charing Cross had Dame Josephile Barnes, who was married to Sir Brian Warren, Grocer Heath’s friend and personal physician. Josephile facilitated abuse on the NHS, Sir Brian privately in Belgravia. See eg. ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’ Charing Cross also hosted the legendary Gender ID Clinic that was rung by a real bastard of a psychiatrist with some very odd ideas of what women are and who enjoyed torturing his patients. When patients voted with their feet and began going abroad, this Top Docs and his colleagues did an about turn and offered gender realignment surgery to pretty much anyone who handed over the money, resulting in the tabloids claiming that Charing Cross had become ‘The Sex Change Capital Of The World’. At least one Charing Cross transwoman patient, Julia Grant, was so badly butchered during surgery that she nearly died. Julia’s case was the subject of a TV mini-series but no, no-one offered to take a case for her although she was treated dreadfully and on camera as well. Julia’s dead now of course, she died on 2 Jan 2019. Another witness safely out of the way. See ‘R.I.P. Julia Grant and Many More…’.

King’s College, London didn’t have Josephile or the infamous Gender ID Clinic, but it had just about everything else…

Paediatric epilepsy is a highly complex disorder which can represent a considerable challenge to the clinician.  Fortunately many of the young brains that develop epilepsy also grow out of it again, but seizures are among the commonest potentially serious symptoms in paediatrics. In recent years, however, there has been marked progress in the understanding of the various types of childhood epilepsy and their causation, as well as major advances in treatment, particularly involving anticonvulsant drugs which control seizures better than before and with fewer side effects. The subject is now attracting considerable interest among researchers and clinicians, and this book presents the latest research findings resulting from intensive epidemiological, immunological, and neuro-investigatory studies. Paediatricians, neurologists and all involved in the practical care of children with epilepsy, will find this book a major step forward in their understanding of the diagnostic, aetiological, therapeutic, prognostic and social aspects of the subject. Other titles of interest from Wiley in this subject area include: The Psychopharmacology of Epilepsy Edited by Michael Trimble (May 1985) Psychiatry and Epilepsy Edited by Thomas Bolwig and Michael Trimble (in preparation)

Here’s another one of Euan’s, published in 1998, mid-Waterhouse Inquiry:

Management of Child Health Services - Begg, Norman T, and Rigby, Michael, and Ross, Euan M

The provision of health care services for children is central to improving the nation’s health and remains a key feature of every government’s policy. This concept has been recognised in the United Kingdom since nineteenth century visionaries prompted increasing interest in the welfare of the country’s school children. Successive generations have built upon these foundations and have been diligent in promoting effective service development. Lucille HughesIt is right that we follow their example, for the young have only one chance of a healthy upbringing. They are totally dependent on others to provide the right services, which are sensitive enough to address individual needs, yet sufficiently comprehensive to enable as many children as possible to reach adulthood with their potential uncompromised by illness. Our objective must be to enable today’s children to enjoy a healthy childhood and to equip them to maximise the benefits of a healthy lifestyle in the years to come. We are making an essential investment in the future and must appreciate the challenges which come with that commitment. We need a multi-professional approach, positive management skills and the adoption of good management practice. I therefore welcome this book on managing child health services and commend the initiative of its editors in bringing together such an impressive team of contributors from different disciplines.

Wendy’s Own True Story names Alexander Campbell, Prof of Paediatrics at Aberdeen University as an Expert Witness, who was, like Peter Dunn, called by Wendy as part of her ‘defence’. Like so many of those to whom Wendy gratefully paid tribute in her book, Alexander has made himself scarce. See the source image

However, Alexander can be found listed as a Company Director.

Alexander George Macpherson Campbell: 34 WOODBURN CRESCENT, ABERDEEN. Alexander George Macpherson Campbell worked in THE MEDICAL PROTECTION SOCIETY LIMITED and the ABERDEEN INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL.

Wendy’s Own True Story didn’t mention that Alexander is a Director of the MPS, the organisation that extracts Top Docs out of serious crap  if they don’t use the skills of the MDU…

‘Mind how you go Wendy and Prof Alexander.’

Iain Chalmers, described by Wendy as Director of the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit gave Expert Evidence in Support of Wendy. Sir Iain Geoffrey Chalmers FRCOG FRCPE FMedSci (born 3 June 1943) is a health services researcher, one of the founders of the Cochrane Collaboration and coordinator of the James Lind Initiative, which includes the James Lind Library and James Lind Alliance.

Chalmers qualified as a Top Doctor at Gwynne’s alma mater the Middlesex Hospital in the mid-1960s and then practised as a Doc in the UK and in the Gaza Strip, 1969-70. In the mid-1970s, Sir Iain became a full-time health services researcher with a particular interest in assessing the effects of care. 

Between 1978 and 1992, Chalmers was the first director of the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit in Oxford. There, Chalmers led the development of the electronic Oxford Database of Perinatal Trials (ODPT) and a collection of systematic reviews of randomized trials of care in pregnancy and children published in the two-volume Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth, co-authoring its summary, Guide to Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth. The NHS Research and Development Programme supported extending the approach to other areas of health care. 

In 1992, Chalmers was appointed Director of the UK Cochrane Centre, leading to the development of the international Cochrane Collaboration. Subsequently, Chalmers became founding Editor of the James Lind Library, which documents the history and evolution of fair trials of treatments, and helped to establish the James Lind Alliance, a non-profit organization that “aims to identify the most important gaps in knowledge about the effects of treatments”. The Library has established strategic agreements with international and non-profit organizations to disseminate its publications to a broad international and multilingual audience.

Chalmers ‘inspired champions all over the world leading to the development of the Cochrane Collaboration and by 2011 this collaboration had nearly 30,000 volunteers contributing towards summarising research evidence to improve health’. Chalmers’ contributions have been instrumental in advancing international policies on research for health -such as PAHO’s Policy on Research for Health, and to ‘promote a better understanding of the importance of building bridges between users and producers of research for health policy and health care delivery’.

So er what’s gone wrong then Sir Iain? Because you being an epidemiologist who is also a Top Doc who has practised with many of those we know and love cannot possibly have not noticed what is going on.

Chalmers ‘continues to promote better research for better health care by increasing public appreciation of good research through Testing Treatments interactive and the James Lind Library and by working with others to reduce waste in research’.

Then why hasn’t Iain said anything about any of the research frauds and scandals that I have discussed on this blog? He will know about them and many more as well, because Sir Iain has access to a bigger dataset than I do; not a dataset that will demonstrate my allegations to be baseless, but a dataset that will undoubtedly demonstrate an even grimmer picture…

Iain came from Liverpool and bagged his knighthood in 2000, the year in which the Waterhouse Report was published. It’s extraordinary what can happen to one after one has given Expert Evidence in support of one of Dafydd and Gwynne’s mates isn’t it, particularly if Gwynne’s mate is Chairman of the GMC at the time. 
When Iain gave Expert Evidence in Support of Wendy, Gwynne hadn’t quite died, although he was on the way out. Prof Greig-Smith was still undertaking research work as an Emeritus at Bangor and also undertook work commissioned by the British Gov’t. Greig-Smith’s son was a Top Doc in Liverpool. See ‘Our Man In Llandegfan’.
Iain can be found on the website of Oxford University’s Nuffield Dept for Primary Health Sciences.

Senior Fellow and Associate Tutor at the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine

Iain was founding director of the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit between 1978-1992, and the UK Cochrane Centre between 1992 and 2003. Between 2003 and 2019 he was coordinator of the James Lind Initiative, which used a variety of approaches to promoting better research for better health care. Iain founded the James Lind Library in 1998 to illustrate the evolution of fair tests of treatments, and he remains the Library’s Articles Editor.

Another Expert who provided Evidence in Support of Wendy was one of Lord John Walton’s club from Newcastle, consultant paediatrician Edmund Hey. Edmund was a colleague of Gwynne and Dafydd’s business partner Issy Cohen (see previous posts). Edmund and his colleagues were splashed by the slurry that emanated from the 1987 Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal (see ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas and the Guilty Were Named’) that followed hot on the heels of Wendy’s Savage Inquiry, but not half as splashed as they should have been. The whole lot of them should have drowned in crap, they were running a paedophile ring and exchanging children and staff with the Gang in north Wales. 

The Royal College of Physicians Munk’s Roll ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online supplies us with what we need to know about Edmund.

Edmund Neville Hey

b.1 April 1934 d.9 December 2009
DPhil Oxon(1960) BM BCh(1962) DCH(1965) DM(1969) MRCP(1971) FRCP(1978)

Edmund Neville Hey (‘Ed’) had an international reputation in neonatal care. His work greatly contributed to the understanding of the physiology of babies, the evidence base for their clinical care and perinatal epidemiology.

Born in Harrow, he was brought up in Tilehurst, near Reading. His father, Max, was a keeper of minerals at the Natural History Museum, whose natural inquisitiveness and attention to detail were both inherited by his only child. A mineralogist, he catalogued the museum’s enormouscollection of rocks and edited the journal Mineralogy for 24 years. The mineral heyite was named after him.

Hey studied medicine at Magdelen College, Oxford (where his father had been a fellow). For his DPhil thesis he worked on thermoregulation in babies with a Medical Research Council research group at the London HospitalMedical School run by Kenneth Cross.

Kenneth Cross is discussed in previous posts; he was one of the senior Top Docs at the London Hospital as the pre-existing ring there rapidly expanded during the 1960s.

Qualifying in 1962,

Edmund was one of the cohort of Docs who qualified at the London Hospital in the late 1950s/early 1960s who became very well-known and like Sir William Asscher or Savage, actively played key roles in facilitating organised abuse, or like Lord Bob Winston knew damn well what was happening, worked and socialised with those at the centre of it, benefited from keeping quiet about what happened to my friends and I but somehow didn’t ever get caught with his trousers down, so to speak, as some of his colleagues did.

he spent some time working in Newcastle before being appointed a consultant in respiratory paediatrics at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Not only was Jimmy Savile nipping into GOSH whenever he felt like it, not only were Sunny Jim and Audrey Callaghan flying the flag for GOSH – Audrey was Chairman of the Governors for years and she and Sunny Jim Raised Money for GOSH while Jim ensured that Gwynne, Dafydd and George Thomas were allowed to continue their criminality – but nearly all those in the Gang’s network in London who were either paediatricians or obs and gynaes worked for at least some time at GOSH, including Bodger and Ollie Brooke. Furthermore, clin psychologists who Trained at Denbigh with Dafydd et al bagged jobs at GOSH, as discussed in previous posts.

In 1977, he returned to Newcastle as a senior lecturer in child health and consultant in paediatrics at the Princess MaryMaternity Hospital and the Fleming Memorial Hospital for Sick Children.

By 1977, Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang were doing a roaring trade in collaboration with Lord John Walton’s Newcastle and Durham lot. Newcastle Social Services and other Local Authorities in the North East were sending hordes of children in care to children’s homes in north Wales. Scores of serious complaints about the kids being abused were ignored. Brian Roycroft, Director of Newcastle Social Services for years from 1970, had grown up in the National Children’s Home at Frodsham, Cheshire, where his mum and dad had been houseparents. They knew John Walton’s friend Gwynne and when Roycroft qualified as a social worker himself, he was ready to do business with Gwynne’s successor Dafydd, as discussed in previous posts. 

George Thomas the Westminster paedophile was Patron of NCH and also supported many medical charidees in south Wales, one of which had as a Trustee Dr Elinor Kapp, a child psychiatrist in south Wales, who’s husband Prof Kenneth Rawnsley was Prof of Psychological Medicine at Cardiff. Rawnsley relocated to Cardiff in 1964 from Manchester in 1964, where Rawnsley had worked with the Manchester big wigs who provided an umbrella for Gwynne and Dafydd. Rawnsley’s job at Cardiff was to er uphold standards in psychiatry across Wales. Rawnsley allowed the lobotomies to continue as well as the illegal imprisonment of the victims of VIP sex offenders in the Denbigh Dungeon and the abduction of their babies. Tony Francis studied under Rawnsley at Cardiff Medical School and then worked for him as a junior doc…

In Newcastle he was influenced by Gerald Neligan, one of the first paediatricians to specialise in neonatal care. Hey believed in a non-interventional system of care when others in the field were far more intrusive. Due to the early work he did for his DPhil, he insisted on babies being kept warm when they were born and many lives were no doubt savedthrough this procedure. Assisting the normal physiological processes of babies, and being responsive to their needs and rhythms, seemed the correct approach to him. Absolutely devoted to ‘his’ newborn babies, his insistence on this system was an occasional source of friction with his colleagues.

There were probably some major rows. As with the more recent debate re in which position babies should sleep, on their backs or in their bellies, for years there was much dispute re the appropriate temperature for the environment of babies. Ollie Brooke, when he was young and doing the bare minimum of research needed to bag a senior post, also carried out research into the optimum temperature for babies. Some babies die for reasons that no-one understands, it still happens and Top Docs would often be at each other’s throats as to what they believed the cause was.

However, long after his retirement, neonatal care in Newcastle still reflects many of his principles which time has proved were sound.

These comments re Hey’s research have the aura of the sort of Doctor-speak that is employed when a dangerous idiot has caused great problems and no-one admits it even years after the event. The writer of this obituary is not detailing any solid advances made by Hey, but indicates that he had an inflexible, proprietal attitude towards his patients (although he will have been working as part of a team) and vague assertions about the many lives that were undoubtedly saved are bandied about with no solid evidence.

He was also ahead of his time in recognising the need for regional data collection to evaluate the outcome of maternity care and neonatal services in particular. In 1981 he established the Northern Region Perinatal Mortality Survey and it still continues at www.rmso.org.UK. 

As with Sir Iain, these stats have been collected for many years now, yet the same problems and inequalities stubbornly remain. Furthermore, as at Bristol University, the data that was collected by Edmund Hey et al at Newcastle was passed around organised abuse rings of academics and professionals and was used to identify children who could then be targeted.

Another innovation was his strong support for the introduction of nurse-led care. When there was a local shortage of qualified staff, his colleague Unni Wariyar organised a team of advanced neonatal nurse practitioners and Hey was able to prove demonstrably improved outcomes.

‘Local shortages’ of qualified staff also tend to persist for years in certain areas or hospitals. Everyone knows why; they are the places where patients are being abused or neglected. Good staff won’t work there. One can look at regions in the UK such as north Wales where ‘local shortages’ have existed since the 1960s. No-one will publicly admit what the cause is and so the problem remains. In north Wales it was literally Dafydd and Gwynne, no-one wanted to be anywhere near them. In south London it was Tooting Bec Hospital; like Denbigh with Dafydd and Gwynne, Tooting Bec Hospital was considered untouchable by any competent healthcare professional, it was terrible. Like Denbigh, Tooting Bec Hospital persisted decades after someone should have dropped a bomb on it and simply said ‘This is unlawful, it stops now’, rather than nonsense about ‘This is the patients’ home’, when that excuse is used to ensure that they never get a better home and another part of the NHS has plundered the ‘ring-fenced budget’ anyway, knowing that no-one will ever be held to account. 

In 1994 he retired, a short time after the two newborn units in Newcastle were amalgamated. He continued active research and wrote (or collaborated on) many excellent papers, always written to meet his own exacting standards. Incensed by what he perceived as persecution by authority,

What did Hey think was happening to the kids in care and patients who dared complain about the ring of which he and his colleagues were a part?

he often worked hard in support of doctors who had been accused of professional misconduct.

Including Wendy, at the centre of the huge trafficking ring that stretched up as far as Hey’s own place of employment.

A lover of classical music, he played the piano and organ when young but later preferred to listen, particularly to the work of Bach and Mozart. Other favourite pastimes were sailing and ornithology.

So Edmund could well have had contacts with ornithologists/zoologists in other parts of the UK, including north Wales.

He married Sue née Lindsay, a nurse he met while he was at Oxford. She later became a librarian and they carried out research together on William Harvey. Sadly, she developed multiple sclerosis and he nursed her at home for 14 months until she died in 1999.

Edmund’s Angel wife who was also an insider witness died just before the Waterhouse Report was published…

Moving to a cottage in Yorkshire, he continued to write and research and became a devoted grandfather. He watched very little television and preferred to write long, carefully constructed letters, rather than use the phone. When he died of meningitis, he was survived by his children, Janet, Ian and Carol.

 

The Guardian published an obituary for Edmund Hey that contained this bit of additional information:

Ed supported many doctors whose careers were under threat in civil courts or at the General Medical Council. In retirement, he continued to give such help

Ed remembered Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist and that went a long way in persuading the GMC that they really ought to stop this persecution now.

and was incensed by what he saw as doctors being unfairly treated by overbearing authority. Those whom he aided attest to the great lengths to which he would go in the pursuit of justice.

Just say ‘Gwynne’. Furthermore, Ed’s dad had been a big wig at the Natural History Museum, so Ed would have known Lord Kenyon and family, who were all enthusiastic about museums and galleries and held governance roles in such institutions.

His parents were involved in the scouting movement, which Ed, an only child, thoroughly enjoyed. He continued as a scout leader after he went to Magdalen College, Oxford. He loved music and he played the piano and organ, especially Bach and Mozart. Ornithology and sailing were two of his other passions….

Sounds like a Balliol man who became PM.

Ed married Sue Lindsay, a nurse whom he met while training in Oxford. As his priority was always his work, Sue and their children did not see as much of him as they would have liked… Edmund Hey

Here are a few offerings from Edmund and his friends, Edmund who helped so many Top Docs Persecuted by the GMC, including Wendy, the essential member of the gang needed to Gain The Confidence of those extremely vulnerable first generation migrant women living in poverty who didn’t speak English and would never have wanted a male doc. So here’s Wendy!

Published Feb 1996, co-authored by Edmund Dell and Sam Richmond:

Principles of Resuscitation at Birth

When the manuscript was submitted to the publishers, there were increasingly loud demands for a Public Inquiry re allegations that a VIP paedophile ring was operating in north Wales. The Hague announced that an inquiry would be held three months after Edmund and Sam’s book was published.

In March 2011, Sam Richmond published this volume, co-authored with Jonathan Wylie:

Sam Richmond’s greatest professional satisfaction was to have served the population of Sunderland for more than 25 years as a consultant neonatologist at the Sunderland Royal Hospital. However, he also had an international reputation in neonatal research and resuscitation training. Sam was a leader in developing the Newborn Life Support (NLS) course in the UK and helped to establish it in Europe as well as Bangladesh and Palestine. He chaired the NLS Committees for the Resuscitation Council (UK) and European Resuscitation Council from their inception until his retirement. He also co-chaired the neonatal task force of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation, evaluating evidence and writing guidelines. Sam left a lasting international legacy of effective training and standards in newborn resuscitation.

During the 1980s, virtually every children’s home in Sunderland had been infiltrated by the paedophile ring that Edmund Hey’s senior colleague Lord John Walton facilitated from HQ in Newcastle/Durham Universities. The Director of Social Services for Sunderland. Colin Smart, refused to remain silent about what was happening. Colin was removed from his job, but continued fighting. After the usual extended battle, Colin was subjected to the solution that Home Secretary found for the problem that was Mary Wynch: Colin, facing unemployment for the rest of his life, no income and massive legal fees if he continued, was offered a modest quantity of dosh as a ‘settlement’. The dosh came with the usual condition ie. any more appearances from Colin in the media sending out the message ‘Do you realise how big this ring is?’ will be met with Colin having the arse sued off of him. The information that Colin made public is still available, I have accessed it, but Colin has not been able to ever tell the full extent of the horror. Some of the kids in Sunderland who had been abused did obtain compensation settlements, but as in north Wales, it was only a few of them and there was much noise about them Lying To Get Compensation. 

This People’s Champ of a Sunderland Labour MP worked hard to ensure that not all of the kids who were abused received compensation:

Chris Mullin fought an admirable campaign to release the Birmingham Six. He was not interested in that huge paedophile ring that operated in his constituency, but then neither was Michael Mansfield, the Radical Defender who also fought to release the Birmingham Six.

When Colin Smart was being beaten into silence, Miranda was the MP for the nearby constituency of Sedgefield in Co Durham. Miranda’s dad was a lawyer who had worked as a lecturer at Durham University. Mandy was an MP for a constituency on the site of that ring in the North East – Mandy who by 2011 was employing the Civil Service mandarin daughter of Ron Evans, the bent Gwynedd County Council solicitor who fitted me up and by his wife’s own admission kept the Gang out of prison, as his right-hand aide – then there’s Nick Brown, Prescott, Alan Milburn, Uncle Harry’s nephew…. There were/are loads of leading Labour MPs with constituencies on the location of that huge ring that for decades has operated right across the North East of England and into Yorkshire. None of those politicians will dare touch anyone involved with it. Partly it is because those politicians are shallow, unprincipled and unscrupulous, but the ones who are not quite as shallow, unprincipled and unscrupulous are terrified. Top Doctors are involved and those public figures don’t want the Colin Smart treatment, they don’t want their kids to be refused effective NHS treatment and they certainly don’t want to be found dead.

That is why, in the face of endless Children’s Champions and Talking About Mental Health, nothing is improving.

Being me, I would like to spend months researching the entire network of Sam Richmond, research all of his publications, then his co-authors and their publications etc, to illustrate the scale of this problem, but I haven’t the capacity to do that on this blog; I’m just providing a snapshot here…

I recommend that readers pay a quick visit to the website of the Resuscitation Council (UK). Adjacent to Sam’s profile is a list of the Conflict Of Interest policy, the Guidelines on Ethics and all the usual. It is meaningless. The reality is that Colin Smart had his career ended and will find himself destitute if he ever goes public on the extent of the criminality with which Sam, Edmund et al were colluding. Furthermore Colin Smart was a Warning to anyone else who might be foolish enough to refuse to shut up.

Meanwhile, the general public saw this, starring a high profile Labour Party colleague of Chris Mullin, Miranda, Mandy etc:

Mandy’s granddad Herbert Morrison was Deputy PM when George Thomas began his political career. Wedgie Benn and other old war horses also were around when Thomas was a young MP. George Thomas entered the House in 1945, along with Sunny Jim, Richard Crossman and others who rose to the very top of the post-war British Gov’ts. People did know that George Thomas molested children, they knew that Peter Morrison did, a lot of them knew that Norman St John Stevas did as well and the world and his wife knew about Bob Boothby. Most people certainly didn’t like what they did and as these molesters gradually died off, a few braver souls emerged in public and confirmed that actually everyone had loathed them… That didn’t help the kids in north Wales or the North East or Islington or Lambeth or Leicester or other areas of the UK that had been saturated by these gangsters… 

If one lives in a region ruled by these gits, all of one’s approaches to Authorities will be met with either a How Very Dare, or a reassurance of You Are The Only Person Who Has Complained, No-one Else Has Caused Trouble Like You, You Are Manipulating People Into Complaining. None of this is true; I know that in north Wales, HUNDREDS of people had complained, one only had to spend time in the company of the dispossessed or even just not very privileged to find out that one was far from alone. I sat with people again and again who had been insulted, abused, or criminally neglected by those we know and love and we would see one of the Gang on the TV or in the newspaper with Hywel Williams, or Dafydd Wigley or Betty Williams and the conversation in the room would turn to ‘What chance have we got when they’re on tele with the local fucking MP, talking about their Excellent Work?’ In 2012 or thereabouts, Keith Fearns was interviewed by Huw Edwards on national TV in Fearns’s capacity as a CBT therapist Who Was Helping and Lobbying For More Therapists Like Keith. I received a phone call asking me ‘Have you just seen WHO has been on national news??? The last thing that we need is more people like Keith Fearns. WTF is going on?’

Keith starred with Huw Edwards AFTER Keith and his mates had finally been sacked for the serious neglect of their clients, after 30 years of flagrant law breaking and abusing their positions. They were at last sacked and within months all of them had set up as Therapists In Private Practice and then Fearns appeared on the national news to advertise their services.

Sam Richmond – DEAD WHEN??

Sam’s co-author Professor Jonathan Wylie can also be found on the website of the Resuscitation Council (UK):

Jonathan Wyllie has been a consultant neonatologist at The James Cook University Hospital since 1994

In 1994 an MP for a Durham constituency became Leader of the Labour Party. Here’s Dubya dropping into that man’s constituency home in Sedgefield:

and was clinical director of neonatology until May 2017. He is Professor of Neonatology and Paediatrics at Durham University. He has a long-standing interest in resuscitation and neonatal haemodynamics as well as an interest in paediatric cardiology. He was one of the originators of the Newborn Life Support (NLS) course in the UK and Europe. He is Chair of the NLS Subcommittee, a previous Chair and now a member of the Advanced Resuscitation of the Newborn Infant (ARNI) Working Group and Science Co-Chair of the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) NLS Science and Education Committee. He is an invited board member of the ERC. He was European Co-Chair of the ILCOR neonatal task force for the evidence evaluation process of 2010, 2015 and continues as Vice-Chair of the ILCOR neonatal task force at present. He is co-author of newborn resuscitation guidelines for Europe and the UK for 2005, 2010 and 2015. In 2010 he was awarded the Fellowship of the European Resuscitation Council for services to resuscitation and in 2015 given honorary membership of the Resuscitation Council (UK). In 2018 he was elected as an honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. In his spare time he enjoys walking, mountain biking and more recently photography.

 

Edmund Hey’s death received coverage in the Newcastle-based media and one Professor Alan Craft’s compliments about Edmund and his Contribution To Neonatology were quoted.

Sir Alan William Craft FRCP FRCPCH FFPH FMedSci FRCPI FRCPE FRCR FRCA (born 6 July 1946 in Newcastle upon Tyne) is a paediatric oncologist and Emeritus Professor of Child Health at Newcastle University. Craft was most notable for work as one of nine founders of the Children’s Cancer Study Group, focusing his research on paediatric oncology, especially the epidemiology of bone tumours that further led to an oncology research unit which has been involved in aetiological studies and in particular the role of irradiation in the development of childhood cancer.

Craft did his clinical training at the Newcastle University Medical School, 1964-69. After qualifying, Craft worked at the Royal Victoria Infirmary. When a colleague at the Royal Victoria Infirmary went on maternity leave in the 1970s, Craft stood in to look after the children with leukaemia and ‘it sparked an interest in children’s diseases and started his road to specialising in paediatric oncology, a field that at the time was relatively new and beginning to develop’.

One downside of such a situation, at least for the patients, is that there is little research governance and no senior figures with experience from whom to seek advice and such a situation is fertile ground for Top Docs who want to make fantastic claims that can’t be borne out by evidence or conceal serious wrongdoing. It happened in Bangor in the late 1980s: 

 

Craft undertook an MRC Fellowship, working for a year at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London, before returning to Newcastle. The Royal Marsden was the centre of a major research fraud in the late 1980s, perpetrated by senior researchers funded by the CRC and ICRF, who were colleagues of the CRC researchers with whom I was working with at Surrey University in 1988-89. For some inexplicable reason, one of Tony Francis’s psychiatrist friends from Manchester, Peter Maguire, had received funding from the CRC to join the team that carried out the fraud. The fraud was exposed in 1990 and one of the team, Prof Tim McElwain was found dead soon afterwards. The rest of the team continued their careers in spite of the public scandal and some of them are now at the top of the tree. The team leader, Clair Chilvers, gave up cancer research and became a mental health researcher and the Chair of an NHS Trust in Nottingham. Only one person walked away from these scumbags after the disaster that left one man dead and that was a junior researcher who changed career. The fraud was begun when I was working at Surrey University in the CRC team led by Vincent Marks, brother of the then Chairman of the BMA John Marks. John Marks was in battle with Ken Clarke at the time and Clarke knew about the barrel of crap that was north Wales, Newcastle, St George’s and indeed the CRC, ICRF etc. Ken Clarke is a Tory MP for a Nottingham constituency and before Clarke became an MP, he worked as a barrister in Chambers in Nottingham. Clarke remained on good terms with his old Chambers throughout his years in Gov’t.

Imagine my surprise when after I began this blog, I discovered that while I was working for Vincent, my work had been plagiarised and given to a Prof Nicola Curtin, a cancer researcher in Newcastle University who published it with her name on as well as mine. I had never heard of Nicola until I found the publication some two years ago; Nicola was not working with our team in Surrey in any way.

See ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’ for the whole sorry story of the dead Professor, the lies, plagiarism and how those at the very top of the CRC and ICRF knew what was happening.

If Professor Craft knows why Prof Curtin ended up receiving my data and published it adding her name to the paper and whether she knows anything about the Chilvers saga, perhaps he could let me know. When the research fraud and plagiarism was going on between Surrey University, their friends at the Royal Marsden and Newcastle University, Lord John Walton was Chairman of the GMC. Walton bagged his peerage in July 1989, in the middle of the scam. In July 1989, Bluglass held the whitewash into my complaint about the Gang while Tony Francis made arrangements for his pal Chris Hunter to hold a Case Conference and declare me Dangerous…

In 1992 Walton became a member of Parliament’s Science and Technology Committee, leaving in 1996, returning in 1997 and leaving again in 2001. From 1993-94, Lord Walton was Chair of the Medical Ethics Committee. When Dafydd obtained a High Court injunction because he was living in fear of

Professor Alan Craft appears on the website of Newcastle University as one of their Inspirational Alumni:

Newcastle University’s Inspirational Alumni webpage is well worth a visit, there’s many famous names there, including Kate Adie and Rowan Atkinson…

Here’s something to think about. At the time of the CRC-ICRF funded research fraud that resulted in the death of Tim McElwain, Sir Walter Bodmer was Director of Research for the ICRF. In 1991, the year after the fraud was exposed, Walter was appointed Director General of the ICRF, a post that he retained until 1996. Bodmer was also Chancellor of the University of Salford, (1995–2005; succeeded by Sir Martin Harris) and Principal of Hertford College, Oxford (1996–2005; succeeded by Dr. John Landers). In 2005, Bodmer was appointed to lead a £2.3 million project by the Wellcome Trust at University of Oxford to examine the genetic makeup of the United Kingdom – the People of the British Isles project. He was joined by Oxford Professor Peter Donnelly (a population genetics and statistics expert).

Bodmer was/is Head of the Cancer and Immunogenetics Laboratory in the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine at the University of Oxford. Research interests of the laboratory include the fundamental genetics and biology of colorectal cancer.

Tim McElwain DIED. He DIED in the midst of a huge research scandal conducted by researchers and Top Docs who were funded by and worked for ICRF while Bodmer was Director of Research. Bodmer knew what was going on. So of course Bodmer was just the man to promote to ever more senior roles in the genetics of oncology.

Sir Paul Nurse joined the ICRF, now (Cancer Research UK) in 1984. He left in 1988, the year that ICRF got together with the CRC and began the Chilvers et al fraud to Chair the Dept of Microbiology at the University of Oxford. Nurse then returned to the ICRF as Director of Research in 1993, and in 1996 was named Director General of the ICRF, which merged with the CRC and became Cancer Research UK in 2002. In 2003, Nurse became President of Rockefeller University in New York City.

In 2011 Nurse became the first Director and Chief Executive of the UK Centre for Medical Research and Innovation, now the Francis Crick Institute.

On 30 November 2010, Sir Paul succeeded Martin Rees as President of the Royal Society and stepped down in 2015 when his 5-year term was completed.

Take a long hard look at the Advances In Cancer Research that this lot have actually achieved over the last 40 years or so without listening to the hot air, the exaggerated claims or the downright lies. The only substantial gobsmacking revolution that has genuinely occurred has been in childhood leukaemia. The treatment of that has indeed been revolutionised, children nearly always died in the 1970s and now they do not. There really has been no massive improvement in any other area.

They have received billions, endless PR and picked up knighthoods and peerages. 

If Paul Nurse wants to e mail me with another example of how cancer research has revolutionised a field I will be happy to highlight it on the blog, because I honestly cannot think of one. I mean a real advance Sir Paul, not just a little bit of an improvement or another piece of shoddy speculative nonsense that you’ve written for a journo who doesn’t understand science.

Tim McElwain was found dead after this lot were exposed. 

 

Alan Craft took further training in adult medicine, undertaking a series of paediatric posts before becoming a consultant in 1978. Craft’s initial consultancy position was at North Tyneside General Hospital, where he worked along with a part-time position at Royal Victoria Infirmary developing the new speciality of paediatric oncology. Craft expanded the unit over the next 25 years into an oncology service for the north of England.

In 1985, Craft returned to work full time at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle, as a senior house officer, a junior doc’s position, presumably because Craft was acquiring experience in a new field. Training in rheumatology led Craft to an interest in joint diseases in children and from that he established a paediatric rheumatology service.

In 1993, Craft was appointed to the Sir James Spence Chair of Child Health and became responsible for the teaching of undergraduate medical students. Craft was appointed by the Secretary of State for Health Charles Clarke to the new Post Graduate Medical Education and Training Board in January 2006, as the UK’s new regulator of postgraduate medical education. Clarke is the son of a Civil Service mandarin and he knew about Gwynne and Dafydd’s activities in Ancient Times. Charles Clarke was elected as a  Councillor for the London Borough of Hackney, being Chair of its Housing Committee and Vice Chair of Economic Development, 1980-86.

After Gwynne and Dafydd’s friend John Tilley had served on Wandsworth Borough Council when the Council colluded with the ring run by St George’s/Springfield – Tilley arrived in London and began organising in the south London Councils just before John Allen opened the Bryn Alyn Community in 1968 – becoming Leader of Wandsworth Council during the 1970s before Tory Paul Beresford took over as Leader, Tilley served as the Labour MP for Lambeth Central, 1978-83. Tilley then worked as the Chief Economic Adviser to Hackney Borough Council. See ‘Lord Snooty The Third’.

John Tilley was born and grew up in Derby, went to Trinity Hall, Cambridge and worked as a journo on a Newcastle paper and then for ‘The Scotsman’ before joining Wandsworth Council.

Miranda shared a flat in Wandsworth with Charlie Falconer when they were junior barristers. Miranda was the pupil of George Carman and Miranda also had a go at being a Hackney Councillor. 

As well as being a mate of Gwynne and Dafydd, Tilley was also a mate of Lord Scarman and it was Tilley who organised Lord Scarman’s Tour Of North Korea after the Brixton Riots when it was decided that Something Must Be Done and it would be Tilley’s mate Lord Scarman who would do it. There were complaints at the time that Scarman was only being introduced to certain Community Leaders and certain police officers… 

Lesley Scarman of Middle Temple a la Ronnie Waterhouse, Paddy Mayhew and Greville Janner, was appointed a High Court judge in 1961, assigned to the Probate, Divorce and Admiralty Division, transferring to the Family Division when the latter was created in 1971. Scarman joined the Court of Appeal in 1973, and was sworn of the Privy Council. On 30 September 1977, Scarman was made a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary, becoming Baron Scarman. Scarman served in the Lords until his retirement in 1986, when Wendy’s Name Was Cleared.

Scarman was appointed Head of the Law Commission, 1965-73, during which time 27 Commission-inspired statutes were made law. As a judge, Scarman’s career had some controversial decisions. Although widely regarded as a liberal, Scarman upheld the blasphemy conviction of Gay News (1979), punctured the GLC’s Fares Fair low-cost public transport policy (1981) and supported the banning of trade unions at GCHQ (1985). Scarman is best known for Chairing the Public Inquiry on the causes of the race riots in Brixton in 1981. Scarman also Chaired Inquiries into the Northern Ireland riots of August 1969 (1969–1972), the Red Lion Square disorders (1975) and the Grunwick dispute (1977).

After entering the House of Lords, Scarman served as Chancellor of the University of Warwick and President of the British Institute of Human Rights. He worked on behalf of the Prince’s Trust, the Birmingham Six and Charter 88. In 1991 Lord Scarman set up the Scarman Trust.

See previous posts for more on Lord Scarman.

Ian Mikardo was an East End Labour MP when Charles Clarke was busy in Hackney (see ‘A Celebration Of Dafydd’s Medical Training’). Mikardo was on the left, one of Crossman and Footie’s 1940s crowd, who, with Jo Richardson and Footie, stood accused of being a KGB double agent. Mikardo was a seriously weird and worrying man who was undoubtedly working for someone but I don’t know if it was the KGB… Mikardo retired to Cheshire, land of Peter Morrison, the Duke of Westminster and Dafydd and Gwynne when he stepped down as an MP in 1987, as the dust settled after The Savage Enquiry and Ollie was released from prison. 

Ian Mikardo and his fellow East End Labour MP Peter Shore Supported Wendy  and Marched Alongside The Wimmin.

Mikardo and Shore: 

Peter Shore’s wife Dr Liz Shore (originally Dr Elizabeth Wrong) was a Top Doc who was Deputy Chief CMO, 1977-84 12 Folded Armsx633 0and even during Harold Wilson’s Gov’ts was one of the most senior Gov’t Medical Officers. Liz was a big mate of Richard Crossman and Championed The NHS throughout the years of Gwynne lobotomising. Liz Shore was Dean of Postgraduate Medicine for the North West Thames Region, 1983-93 and Dean of Postgraduate Training for North Thames Region, 1993-95.12 Folded Armsx633 0 Peter and Liz both ended up in the Lords during the Waterhouse Inquiry. See previous posts.

It was Peter Shore who, in his capacity as an East End MP, persuaded Ken Clarke at the Dept of Health to open the purse strings in the late 1980s to develop the old Mildmay Mission Hospital in Shoreditch into an AIDS hospice to care for the dying rent boys who had been in the children’s homes in north Wales, just when Ken was battling with the BMA and the BMA were providing Tony Francis and other Top Docs with advice on how to refuse to answer my complaints and er frame me  (see ‘Apocalypse Now’).

 

Charles Clarke worked as a researcher and then Chief of Staff for the Windbag, Feb 1981-1992, when the Windbag was deluding himself that he could be PM.

Clarke knew the truth behind such matters as these: 

Charles Clarke also knew about Ollie Brooke, Bodger and the rest. So what could be better in 2006 when Brown and I had begun publishing about the mental health services than for Clarke to appoint Alan Craft, a protégé of Gwynne’s old mate John Walton, responsible for the Brand New Board with the remit for Medical Education and Training?

Lord John Walton:

Charles, when Tony Francis was  supplying the Windbag, you and the Windbag’s other minions with information re my alleged Insanity and Dangerousness, did it really never occur to any of you that I and a few others who were trapped by the Gang and left to sustain their constant abuses were bright, had an education and we knew that no-one at all would help us no matter what those vile bastards did, so we took the piss? A great deal in fact Charles, the Empowered Service Users took the piss regularly and we didn’t actually care that it was all diligently documented as Symptoms Of Our Insanity because we knew that they could assault us, perjure themselves, illegally imprison us and even arrive at or even in our beds in the middle of the night after they had sectioned us unlawfully and no-one was ever held to account  so it didn’t bloody matter what they wrote about us. No complaints were ever investigated properly, that Gang just did what they wanted, so we took the piss.

That is why we sang ‘Dafydd Where’s Your Troosers?’, that is why people discussed Dafydd not having given Mary Wynch’s mother an overdose of barbiturates ooh no just two Kalms to help her sleep, that is why F drew cartoons of Dafydd flying a WW I biplane called ‘Pussyfucker’, made jokes about Dafydd having an extension sheath that reached to Cardiff etc etc. They were a Gang of sex offenders and criminals Clarke and no-one would help. We had all been threatened, assaulted, fitted up for crimes that we had not committed and it was ALWAYS after we had complained about their serious wrongdoing. If I had known that Francis was slandering and libelling us to the Windbag and you Clarke, I would have suggested to F that he gave you a call… 

You explain the 10,000 documents in my possession if we were all so mad and dangerous then Clarke, just explain how that lot were able to detail, sign AND date their plans to have us framed and imprisoned; how letters from public spirited members of the public were being sent to the police, to MPs and to NHS senior managers about what they had witnessed happening to us but were ignored; how perjury by Docs, Angels and social workers took place repeatedly in open court but there was never any investigation… Then there are the forged documents that pop up everywhere…

They murdered people who complained about them Clarke and it was us who were supposed to be Dangerous.

Charles Clarke’s old dad Sir Richard William Barnes Clarke (13 August 1910-21 June 1975), also known as Sir Otto Clarke, was born in Heanor, Derbyshire, the son of schoolmaster William Thomas Clarke and Helen. He was educated at Christ’s Hospital, London and Clare College, Cambridge, where he was sixth wrangler in 1931. Clarke sat the examinations of the Royal Statistical Society in 1932 and was awarded their Frances Wood Prize.

Richard Clarke worked for the British Electrical and Allied Manufacturers’ Association, 1932–33. He was then on the staff of the Financial News (later taken over by the Financial Times) until 1939 and devised the Ordinary Share Index, now the Financial Times Ordinary Share Index. During World War II Richard Clarke served in the Ministries of Information, Economic Warfare, and Supply and Production, and with the Combined Production and Resources Board in Washington, 1942–43. Clarke joined the Treasury in 1945 and was its Second Permanent Secretary, 1962–66. He was then Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Aviation in 1966, then at the Ministry of Technology until 1970, retiring from the Civil Service in 1971. From 1973, Clarke was a Vice-President of the Royal Institution.

Charles Clarke’s dad knew my Posh Relative by marriage Lord Gnome AND he worked with Gnome’s daughter Penelope didn’t he Charles? He was Penelope’s boss wasn’t he? Lord Piercy 1945.jpg

Oh do us a favour Charles Clarke you big corrupt fool and piss off out of public life now. And I’ll have a BIG CHEQUE FROM YOU CLARKE. Where do I begin? Invasion of privacy, theft, conspiracy…

According to Sir Douglas Wass, Richard Clarke was “a character you either loved and hated or hated” – although he himself stated “I loved him.” Wass stated that, with the exception of Sir Leo Pliatzky, (Leo Pliatzky also knew Gnome or his family and friends) Richard Clarke held most Ministers and colleagues “in high disesteem”.

Richard Clarke was given the honours of OBE in 1944, Companion of the Bath in 1951 and Knight Commander of the Bath in 1964. Lord Piercy 1945.jpg

 

Between 2006-08, Alan Craft, along with Sue Killen, Chief Executive of St John Ambulance, undertook a major review of palliative care services for children in England for the Secretary of State, eventually producing a report titled Palliative Care for Children and Young People in England.

Craft retired in 2010, becoming Emeritus Professor of Child Health at Newcastle University. Craft is married to Lady Anne Craft, a children’s Angel.

Craft has a large number of professional memberships, both local and international. From 2004 to 2007, Craft was Chairman of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges. In the 1990s Craft had various roles in the British Paediatric Association before becoming Vice President between 1998 and 2003 and then President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health to 2006. See previous posts eg. ‘Too Many Pills’ and ‘Oliver’s Army!’ for details of the many in those organisations who were either involved with organised abuse, negligent, research fraudsters or all of these.

Craft was Chairman of the United Kingdom Children’s Cancer Study Group between 1992 and 1994 and Chairman of the MRC Bone Sarcoma Committee, 1989-96. Craft was a member of the MRC Cancer Therapy Committee, 1989-96 and of the Management Board of the UK Case Control Study of Childhood Cancer from 1992 onwards. Craft was Honorary President of Together for Short Lives.

Internationally, Craft was president from 1999 to 2005 of the International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOP).

Craft established the North of England Children’s Cancer Research Fund in 1978.

Craft was a member of the scouts movement when he was young and in 2009 he was appointed as Chairman of the UK Scout Association. In 2018 Craft was the County Chairman of the Northumberland Scouts.

Sir Alan Craft, Lady Craft and a Mrs Tracy Craft are listed as Directors of a business based in Northumberland, categorised as a ‘human services’ company. I suspect that the Craft’s business will be some sort of agency that supplies staff at an inflated cost to the NHS that Craft and his colleagues maintain is crippled by the cost of er hiring locum staff.

This is a common scam on the part of NHS staff, although cleaners, catering staff and porters don’t tend to do it. Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate Irene Train, the senior Angel employed at the highest levels by Clwyd Health Authority who was wheeled out to sit on investigations into the abuse of kids in care or psych patients and gave the Services as clean bill of health every time, ran a scam of this nature when she retired. Train was also a Trustee of St David’s Hospice in Llandudno. See previous posts…

These scams are a win-win situation. The Directors of the scam ensure that their NHS organisation remains so shite that no-one but their henchpeople want to work there and remind their henchpeople that if they sign up for the agency they can work the same shifts in the same hospital as before but for double the pay. The NHS will foot the bill while the Directors of the agency join in the screaming about the NHS Staffing Crisis because of Low Pay and the necessity of Increased Investment In The NHS.

Ysbyty Gwynedd has been staffed substantially by agency staff for years now and it has cost the NHS a fortune. When Martin Jones was CEO of the North West Wales NHS Trust, an added advantage of staffing the Trust with agency staff was that Martin made it known that any agency staff who reported abuse of patients or misconduct would not be hired again. Martin didn’t even have to unlawfully dismiss them and pay them off, it was a fantastic arrangement. I was told that Martin had a business arrangement with the agency.

The only Top Doc who has been employed by the NHS at the Hergest Unit for some years now is David Healy. It is entirely staffed by locums who are paid thousands for one shift because even locums don’t want to work at Hergest.

Mark Drakeford knew about this when he was the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister and the situation is worse than ever now that he is FM. Drakeford doesn’t care, it’s just another reason for the big blancmange to share platforms with Jezza Corbyn and bang on about how many more billions they’ll Invest In The NHS they’re doing it right now in the General Election campaign. If any readers want to let me know who is sitting on the Boards of the agencies staffing the Betsi, please let me know. I’ll put their names up on the blog, it is daylight robbery.

 

On 31 July 2009, in a letter to the Newcastle upon Tyne newspaper The Journal, Craft expressed concerns about the local authorities’ plan to restructure children’s services in the region by moving them from North Tyneside General Hospital and Wansbeck General Hospital to a new hospital near Annitsford. Craft stated in the letter that it would be difficult to staff the new hospital at Annitsford, due to a shortage of doctors and nurses, and that “develop[ing] in-patient emergency services for children in Cramlington [would] go against all current guidance and defies common sense”. Craft stated that with the new hospital, there was an opportunity to provide world class services for “all children north of the Tyne, and perhaps further south”, but the proposals meant that children “will be condemned to second rate services for the foreseeable future”.

Business as usual then. 

The flagship hospital in Newcastle was built as the result of a cosy arrangement that Richard Crossman negotiated with T. Dan Smith and other big wigs in Newcastle. The deal was based on the necessity for everyone to keep quiet about but keep the wheels turning of the massive network of corruption in civic life that stretched across the north of England and reached down to London, involving Whitehall mandarins and politicians as well as the usual corrupt professionals. The T. Dan Smith, Poulson and Reginald Maudling scandals were only the tip of the iceberg and the rest of the berg remained hidden because the essential part was the Westminster Paedophile Ring/trafficking operation run by Walton et al… T. Dan Smith was known to have business interests with Wandsworth Council and John Tilley, a Trinity Hall Cambridge graduate, had been working as a journo in Newcastle before, in the late 1960s, he suddenly decided that his heart lay in being a Councillor in Wandsworth…

The Lord Lambton Affair on Grocer Heath’s watch was part of the fest, Lambton who’s daughter Lucinda married Perry Worsthorne, Editor of the Sunday Torygraph.

Eddie Milne was one genuinely honest MP who tried to expose the lot of them. Eddie was hounded out of his seat and the Labour Party replaced him with John Ryman, the husband of Lady Doctor Shirley Summerskill, who doubled up as the MP for Halifax. Summerskill’s mum Edith was a pioneering Lady Doctor who was MP for Fulham and John Strachey’s junior Minister during the 1940s. Edith was subsequently sent north to serve as the MP for Warrington, just as the building of Risley Remand Centre was approved as Gwynne and Dafydd were provided with yet more scaffolding. Shirley was a Somerville graduate who had trained at Tommy’s with Dr Death and Ann and Peter Dally. The Summerskills knew Sadie Francis’s family.

As for John Ryman, he ended up in prison, for serially swindling Rich Ladies out of their life savings. He had married Shirley Summerskill in the late 1950s and they remained unhappily married for years before they divorced. People in the Labour Party did know what Ryman was like, including his Feminist Goddess and – by then a Baroness – of a mother-in-law. Ryman was selected as a Labour Party candidate in preference to Eddie Milne when Harold Wilson was the Leader of the Labour Party.

A deal as rotten as Crossman’s in Newcastle was thrashed out by George Thomas to build the flagship University Hospital in Cardiff. Thomas in his capacity as Secretary of State for Wales plundered the budget that DHSS adviser Brian Abel-Smith had allocated for the rest of Wales to give William Asscher and the big boys in Cardiff a wonderful present in return for their complete silence re Thomas’s own offending, the wider ring and of course Gwynne and Dafydd’s crimes. See post ‘The Great Stink’. There were bugger all medical facilities in north Wales after Thomas raided the coffers but a great many children’s homes. Abel-Smith and everyone else in authority knew what George Thomas had done. The Labour vote in south Wales continued to hold up. 

 

Expert Evidence in Support of Wendy at the Savage Enquiry was also provided by Gordon Stirrat, at the time Prof of Obs and Gynae, at Bristol University and Ron Taylor, Prof of Obs and Gynae at UDMS (Guy’s and Tommy’s).

Gordon is an old mucker of D.G.E. Wood who knew how important it was to Clear Wendy’s name, the staged bunfight being all about keeping Dafydd, Wood et al out of a very deep slurry it. Gordon’s previous is worrying for those of us who know anything about the cock-ups and malpractice in the NHS in the West Country:

This is the spiel provided by Gordon to accompany his profile, but I’m not sure on which date:

As Dean of the Faculty of Medicine I was responsible for the setting up of the Centre for Ethics in Medicine (CEM). I now work closely with Professor Alastair Campbell in my role as Senior Research Fellow. My main responsibility is the development of training programmes in Ethics for Healthcare Professionals.  At the request of the Chief Medical Officer of England we have recently prepared and submitted a blue print for a national programme for Ethics Training of all Healthcare Professionals as part of their continuing professional development.  I teach on both the intercalated BSc programme and the undergraduate course.

As Chairman of the RCOG Ethics Committee I am anxious to be pro-active in considering the multitude of ethical problems faced by obstetricians and gynaecologists.

A look at Gordon’s profile confirms that Gordon was just a common or garden Top Doc until he gave Expert Evidence in Support of Wendy (read Expert Evidence In Support Of Bodger, that’s who mattered in the world of Obs and Gynae), then it was ever upwards for Gordon.

Peek A Boo Bodger!

When the investigations into the abuse of kids in care began in north Wales, 12 Folded Armsx633 0Gordon really was in demand. 

Gordon has published a great quantity on ethics with many others, who must have known what he was/is up to…

Here’s Gordon, who, being so concerned with ethics, was facilitating organised abuse in other regions as well as in Bristol, Avon and Somerset:

See the source image

There are quite a few Stirrats on the Medical Register, but I can’t see Gordon there; he must he in limbo, as pals of Dafydd so often are re the Medical Register. Stirrat is not a common name, so I presume that the Stirrats are a big medical family. There’s a Colin Gordon Stirrat who qualified in 2001, who might be Gordon’s son. A Fiona Stirrat who qualified in 1981 has voluntarily relinquished her registration…

Ron Taylor of Guy’s and Tommy’s has done his best to disappear from the internet but there are traces of him in academic journals if readers want to find out with whom he worked and when…

 

Those who prevailed over the rot that is Bristol University, including that particularly serious rot in the form of Gordon Stirrat Of Ethics:

As of 2016, Bristol University has had thirteen Vice-Chancellors:

  • Conwy Lloyd Morgan, 1909
  • Sir Isambard Owen, 1909–1921
  • E. F. Francis, (Acting) 1921–1922
  • Thomas Loveday, 1922–1945
  • A. M. Tyndall (Acting) 1945–1946
  • Sir Philip Morris, 1946–1966 – Tobacco King, much of Bristol University was funded by tobacco dosh or of course the slave trade
  • J. E. Harris 1966–1968
  • Arthur Roderick Collar 1968–1969
  • Sir Alec Merrison, 1969–1984 – nuclear physicist friend of Gwynne and Dafydd, helped the Top Docs out of a tight spot on a number of occasions
  • Peter Haggett (Acting) 1984–1985
  • Sir John Kingman, 1985–2001
  • Eric Thomas, 2001–2015
  • Hugh Brady, 2015–

Pof Phyllida Parsloe held senior academic and management roles at Bristol University and the University of the West of England. Phyllida is certainly a barrel of laughs. She trained as a social worker at St George’s in the era that saw Mr Thrope pack Norman Scott off to Desmond Curran at St George’s for Treatment after he’d driven Norman to a breakdown, subsequently worked as a probation officer as well and became an Expert on Poor People With Problems. Phyllida may well know my Posh Relative, Lord Piercy’s second wife Veronica. Phyllida passed through Aberdeen University when Gwynne, Dafydd and Wendy Savage’s mate Sir Dugald Baird was busy illegally aborting huge numbers of babies of low income women and later rocked up at D.G.E. Wood Central, Bristol. Phyllida Chaired an NHS Trust in Bristol and was obliged to resign after a scandal.

Phyllida’s long term close friend/partner was Olive Stevenson, who after a long and distinguished career of extracting local authorities from slurry pits in the wake of child abuse scandals became a Prof of Social Work at Nottingham University. Olive bagged that Chair in 1984, the year of the Gwynne Row. I haven’t previously paid any attention to that, but Olive’s reputation as a Wise And Compassionate Voice Of Reason was founded on her additional report on the death of Maria Colwell in 1973, the first big ‘children’s social work failure’ scandal. Maria died in the care of the local authority in Sussex that was in partnership with Gwynne and Dafydd. Olive was a member of the Committee of Inquiry that followed Maria’s death and a truly damning Report was compiled, laying the blame for Maria’s death firmly on the inexcusable conduct of the Director of Social Services and his colleagues. Olive was so cross at Social Workers Being Blamed that she compiled her own additional Report, exonerating the fuckwits who were in business with Gwynne and Dafydd. Nottingham University’s Dept of Social Sciences already hosted a few friends of Gwynne and Dafydd and they welcomed Olive with open arms. See ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’

The site of the trafficking ring facilitated by Wendy and her colleagues at the London Hospital also embraced Newham and the presence of Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Sunny Jim’s Lord Chancellor Lord Elwyn-Jones as a local constituency MP Labour MP for so many years gave that ring a truly wonderful boost, as discussed in previous posts eg. ‘A Celebration Of Dafydd’s Medical Training’. The story of Robin Wales, longstanding Councillor/Mayor of Newham, his rotten borough and the ‘regeneration’ of Newham based on its transformation as a world financial centre bankrolled by so many who benefited from the trafficking facilitated by Gwynne and Dafydd has been extensively discussed on the blog. ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’.

However one Newham MP did something so extraordinary that I’ll revisit him, because now I’ve got a better grasp of what was going on in Newham, I’m intrigued as to why he fell out with so many and why.

Reginald Ernest Prentice, Baron Prentice, (16 July 1923-18 January 2001), was the most senior Labour figure ever to defect to the Conservative Party. Reg Prentice was born in Croydon, Surrey and educated at Whitgift School in South Croydon, then at the LSE. Lord Piercy 1945.jpg Reg served in Austria and Italy during World War II.

Reg joined the staff of the TGWU in 1950, the TGWU that for years was led by Lord Jack Jones, a good friend of Dom Mintoff, who served two terms as PM of Malta and who was in addition Mr Big in the Maltese Mafia. Richard Crossman was also mates with Mintoff, as was Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate Lady Juliet Bingley, wife of NATO Commander Vice-Admiral Sir Alec Bingley and father of William Bingley…

Jack Jones has stood accused of being a KGB double agent when he worked for the security services but it is more likely that, like the others on the left who were so accused, eg. Jo Richardson, Lord Jack was simply corrupt and using his position to facilitate Gwynne and Dafydd’s business. The Maltese Mafia had big interests in gambling casinos, as did the Krays and their associates. I think I now know the answer to the question that Brown posed a few weeks ago ie. ‘What did the British Gov’t do in return for the Maltese Mafia?’ re that very cosy relationship between Harold Wilson’s most senior Ministers and Mintoff…

Prentice was a Councillor for then-County Borough of Croydon from 1949. He served on the Housing, Libraries, Planning & Development, Water and Reconstruction Committees. Reg served as Labour MP from 1957 for East Ham North, later Newham North East. He was a Minister of State in Harold Wilson‘s first Gov’t at Education and Science (1964–1966), then as Minister of Public Buildings and Works (1966–1967), and finally was put in charge of the still-new Ministry of Overseas Development (1967–1969). When Labour regained power, Prentice was Secretary of State for Education and Science, 1974-75, subsequently becoming Minister for Overseas Development with a seat in the Cabinet until 1976.

In 1975, Prentice was deselected by his Constituency Labour Party. He appealed unsuccessfully from the rostrum of the Labour Party Conference for the NEC to overturn their endorsement of his deselection. In 1977, Prentice left the Labour Party after a series of battles with left-wing constituency activists such as Owen Ashworth and joined the Conservative Party.

Prentice was elected as a Conservative MP for Daventry in Northamptonshire at the 1979 General Election. Lady Hesketh was instrumental in Reg standing for Daventry. Northamptonshire was the location of yet another ring linked to Leicester and the Gang in north Wales. Northamptonshire’s USP was St Andrew’s Hospital, then a truly dreadful NHS psych hospital which has now metamorphosed into an equally dreadful private facility for Young Adults With Autism and Learning Disabilities. The Young Adults are being injured and found dead at an impressive rate in St Andrew’s.

Top Docs from St Andrew’s as it used to be supplied evidence that was crucial to the conviction of Jeremy Bamber for mass murder in the late 1980s. Bamber has always maintained his innocence and is regularly slapped down by members of the judiciary who snap that the evidence against Jeremy was overwhelming. So were the lies told by the Top Docs and their friends in the forensic science service and the lawyers involved in those cases. Jeremy’s sister, who was one of those who was murdered by whoever carried out the crime for which Bamber is still in prison, was an Empowered Service User who also worked as a model. The sort of girl who was targeted by Gwynne and Dafydd’s Gang…

They’re a load of lying bastards Mr Bamber, they do not have any ‘expertise’ and they bribe or threaten other people to lie as well; I have no idea if you are innocent or guilty but I do know that nothing that lot say can be assumed to contain even a grain of truth.

Reg’s new friends in Daventry and Lady Hesketh were part of the Tory network of Gwynne and Dafydd… 

Reg was a Minister of State at the DHSS in Thatch’s Gov’t, 1979-81, under Ronnie Waterhouse’s mate Secretary of State Patrick Jenkin. Prentice ‘left the Gov’t owing to ill health’. In 1981 as Mary Wynch began her journey to the Master of the Rolls.

Prentice was knighted in 1987, the year he stepped down as an MP, as the Gang got ready to put the last part of their Cunning Plan into action to frame and imprison me and Ollie Brooke found himself a free man. 

On 30 January 1992, Prentice was created life peer as Baron Prentice. In the last few years before Reg’s death at age 77, he was President of the Devizes Conservative Association. Peter Morrison’s brother Charles was the Tory MP for Devizes and the Morrisons had run Devizes for decades, the family seat being in Wiltshire. Prentice died in 2001 in Mildenhall, Wiltshire.

Whatever Reg Prentice fell out with the Labour Party over, it wasn’t the trafficking ring in his East End constituency, because when they deselected him Reg simply joined the Posh Tories who ran the same ring.

Just a reminder: Reg’s fellow East End MP Peter Shore, married to Liz the people trafficking Top Doc at the top of Gov’t and the London Medical Establishment, wasn’t only a Cambridge grad who was working for the security services, but he went to Quarry Bank High School in Liverpool. That school was made famous by some old boys who were in the Beatles. Geoffrey Chamberlain was a close friend of Cilla, a pal of the Fab Four in their Slums Of Liverpool days when Gwynne and Dafydd had begun to expand on that nice little earner of theirs.

Prentice’s daughter, Christine, followed her father as a London Borough of Croydon Councillor, 1992-98. Warlingham Park Hospital in Croydon was a truly appalling place in which patients were battered and abused, relieved of their inheritances and found dead. The young adult children of one family ruined by the Top Docs of Warlingham Park were, in the late 1980s, ‘resettled’ in Bethesda by an arrangement between Top Docs and lawyers in Croydon and north Wales. The family had never even visited Gwynedd and had no contacts there. A great deal of the money that they were due to inherit from their mum who was found dead in Warlingham Park disappeared during their ‘relocation’. See previous posts…

Reg Prentice’s East End seat was succeeded by Ronald Leighton (24 January 1930-28 February 1994) became a Labour MP in 1979 by regaining Newham North East, the seat held by Reg Prentice when he defected. Leighton was opposed to British membership of the EEC and was Director of the Common Market Safeguards Campaign, 1970-72.

Leighton retained the seat until he died in office, aged 64, on 28 Feb 1994. The Labour MP for Barking, Jo Richardson, who went back to the late 1940s with Crossman, Mikardo and Footie, died in office on 1 Feb 1994, thus creating an opportunity for Little Nell to become an MP. A lot was happening in early 1994, including Peter Howarth, a member of staff from Bryn Estyn, awaiting trial for the serial sex abuse of boys in care in north Wales and Howarth’s long-time friend and boss at Bryn Estyn Matt Arnold finding that he was dying. Then John Smith died in May 1994… See previous posts.

After Leighton’s death, at the subsequent by-election, the seat was held for Labour by Stephen Timms. Timms inherited everything that Gwynne and Dafydd’s trafficking ring took to Newham but Stephen hasn’t commented on anything untoward yet…

 

Lest anyone is wondering if there was anyone in Parliament who had an insider’s knowledge of the uncontrollable POA whom the Tories believed could only be restrained by installing a serial child sex offender as the General Manager of Broadmoor in 1987-88, there was and it was someone who had worked with the POA, knew exactly how corrupt and violent they were but chose never to make that public. The person concerned was John Wheeler, who had worked as an Assistant Prison Governor before he became a Tory MP.

Sir John Daniel Wheeler, (born 1 May 1940) was elected for the marginal constituency of Paddington at the 1979 General Election, winning the seat with a majority of just 106 after two recounts. Paddington is a constituency with a good number of Top Doctors and it also contains St Mary’s Hospital which by the time Wheeler was an MP was the hospital of choice for the birth of Royal babies, as a result of the presence of Royal Doc Sir Hugh Pinker (Geoffrey Chamberlain’s mate) at St Mary’s. William and Harry were born there. See post ‘Wimmin’s Wellbeing – The Fortnum and Mason Connection’.

Wheeler was put on the Home Affairs Select Committee as soon as it was established. At the 1983 General Election Wheeler was elected for the new constituency of Westminster North, a seat based largely on Paddington but also taking in the abolished St Marylebone constituency. Westminster North contained a good few St George’s folk, St George’s having been located at Hyde Park Corner in Knightsbridge until the early 1980s. St Marylebone covered Harley Street and was the constituency for Very Posh Top Doctors.

Sir John was an MP who represented the grandest end of the British Medical Establishment who were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring.

After 1987, as Ollie Brooke was released from jail, Wheeler was made Chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee. Sir John was hoping and expecting to continue this role after 1992 but found that the Conservative whips had made a rule that no member may serve on a Select Committee for more than three terms. It was suggested in the press that this rule was designed to get rid of Nicholas Winterton who had been a troublesome Chair of the Health Select Committee and that Wheeler was regarded as ‘collateral damage’. Nicholas Winterton and his wife Ann were both Tory MPs for Cheshire constituencies and up to their eyes in Gwynne and Dafydd criminality. Nicholas Winterton was known among Bridgwater Tories as being a Westminster Swinger. I am still waiting for Tom King to tell me how they knew about Sir Nicholas’s Swinging in darkest Zummerzet.

Wheeler was friendly with John Major because they entered Parliament together and were ideologically close. Or at least that was their story. When Major became PM, Wheeler was appointed as Security Minister at the Northern Ireland Office. Wheeler  was also made a member of the Privy Council. Wheeler was knighted in the New Year’s Honours list of 1993.

In 1995, boundary changes were announced that would expand Wheeler’s constituency to the west, taking in Labour-voting areas of north Kensington and tilting the seat towards Labour. Wheeler decided that he did not wish to contest such unfavourable territory and sought selection elsewhere. Somewhere perhaps with a greater proportion of rich corrupt Top Docs who were mates with the St George’s/St Mary’s crowd Wheeler?

In September 1995 Wheeler announced his intention to challenge Sir Nicholas Scott in the new constituency of Kensington and Chelsea. Scott was perceived as vulnerable after personal scandals – Scott had one hell of an alcohol problem and was caught out discussing Uganda although the evidence points to Scott’s Ugandan discussions being far more scandalous than ever became public – and ‘also because Wheeler was a very moderate MP in a party which was moving to the right.’ It was also a Party with The Hague as Welsh Secretary who knew that he was about to announce a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and that the Inquiry would be totally rigged. I have been told that Wheeler also knew that in 1995 the Gang were going to throw the kitchen sink at their attempts to have me sent to live with Mr Savile and this influenced his desire to become the member for Kensington and Chelsea. 

However, Wheeler did not make the shortlist and he was rejected for other constituencies. One newspaper report suggested that Conservative Associations were put off by the security detail who had to come with Wheeler whenever he visited. Wheeler also ‘suffered by association’ when the corruption of Westminster City Council under Dame Shirley Porter was uncovered, his constituency being in the city. The corruption prevailing under Porter’s regime was so serious that it should have prevented all of those involved, including Wheeler, from ever holding public office again. One Top Doc member of Westminster City Council was found dead in the midst of the scandal. Suicide. Nothing further to add…

After Sir Nicholas Scott’s ‘private life’ – a private life about as private as Dafydd’s ‘private life’ – became too much for the Tories to stomach and Scott resigned, Wheeler tried again to be selected in Kensington and Chelsea but met with no more success. I wonder why they didn’t want him?

Although Wheeler’s name was mentioned whenever a Conservative seat fell vacant, he was unsuccessful and therefore retired from Parliament at the 1997 General Election, as the action in north Wales re Ronnie’s Inquiry was underway.

Since leaving Parliament, Wheeler has undertaken a review of airport security for the United Kingdom and Australian Gov’ts in the light of the 11 September 2001 attacks. Wheeler was Chairman of the Service Authorities of the National Crime Squad and the National Criminal Intelligence Service between 1998 and 2002. See the source imageWheeler is a Deputy Lieutenant of Greater London with responsibility for the London Borough of Merton, a Borough served by St George’s Hospital Medical School and of which Theresa May was a Councillor in the 1980s and early 1990s. John Wheeler knew another person who knew much about Gwynne and Dafydd, as did his immediate family and his in-laws.

John Elliot Orr Dunwoody CBE (3 June 1929-26 January 2006) was educated at St Paul’s School, then trained as a Top Doctor at King’s College London and Westminster Hospital Medical School. Dunwoody was at Westminster when it was the training ground for Top Docs from south Wales who facilitated the ring eg. Dannie and Wilfred Abse, having been popularised by the presence of Royal Doc Sir Clement Price-Thomas at Westminster. See ‘Successful Surgery Of King George VI!’.

Dunwoody worked in Devon as a senior house physician at Newton Abbot Hospital, 1955-56 and as a GP and medical officer in Totnes District Hospital, 1956-66.

If Norman Scott is reading this blog, Norman, John Dunwoody will have been one of those who caused big problems for you. Dunwoody was a key player in the Westminster Paedophile Ring and he went to work in Devon when Mr Thrope decided that his future was as the Liberal MP for north Devon and then PM…

Dunwoody was in Devon when Edward du Cann, Maurice Macmillan et al were causing problems for my father on his farm in Devon as well.

Dunwoody was active in the Socialist Medical Association, with Uncle Harry, Julian Tudor-Spart, Wendy Savage et al.

Dunwoody contested the safe Conservative seat of Tiverton in 1959 and came close to winning Plymouth Sutton in 1964, losing by just 410 votes in a seat that Dr Death would later hold for several years for Labour. Dunwoody became the MP for Falmouth and Camborne at the 1966 General Election. Dunwoody wowed Richard Crossman when Crossman was Secretary of State for the DHSS and served as a Health Minister under Crossman, 1969-70. Think Gwynne and Dafydd…

A well-regarded orator at Labour Party Conference, Dunwoody was spoken of as a future leader of the Party. However, he lost his seat in 1970 and did not return to Parliament…

Dunwoody had campaigned hard for a total ban on smoking, before its negative health effects were universally recognised, and became the first director of Action on Smoking and Health (ASH). He served as Chairman of the Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster Area Health Authority 1977–82, Chairman of the Family Planning Association 1981–87 and Chairman of the Bloomsbury District Health Authority, 1982–90. From 1996 Dunwoody was Vice-Chairman of the Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth Local Medical Committee. Dunwoody was awarded the CBE in 1986, just as Ollie Brooke, friend and colleague of Bodger who was from a south Wales family and went to Llandaff Cathedral School and then Cowbridge Grammar (as did Sir Anthony Hopkins), was jailed and Brave Wendy’s Name Was Cleared.

Dunwoody married Gwyneth Dunwoody (née Phillips) , daughter of Morgan Phillips from south Wales, a mate of Richard Crossman, Footie, George Thomas et al and a General Secretary of the Labour Party. Gwyneth served as the Labour MP for Exeter, 1966-70 and then for Crewe (the constituency became Crewe and Nantwich) in Cheshire, Feb 1974-2008. Gwyneth was deemed a suitable MP to represent that seat down the road from Sir Peter Morrison at exactly the same time that Morrison was selected as the Tory candidate for Chester. Gwyneth dined out of her status as a Strong Woman from a pedigree of Strong Women. Her mother was Labour Party big wig Baroness Norah Phillips and both of her

Gwyneth also served as an MEP, 1975-79.

Dafydd’s mate Dr Bob Hobson who facilitated the huge ring at the Maudsley for years in his guise as a ‘community psychiatrist’ relocated to Manchester University in 1974. See ‘The Mentor’.

Prior to being elected to the Commons in 1966, Gwyneth served as a Totnes Councillor.

The Dunwoodys had two sons and a daughter; their daughter Tamsin Dunwoody served as a Labour  AM in the Welsh Assembly (2003–07).

The Dunwoodys marriage was dissolved in 1975 and in 1979 John Dunwoody married Evelyn Borner. John died aged 76 in 2006 after an unfortunate accident at his home at Béziers, France…

See previous posts for more Dunwoody laffs, the bad behaviour, the police investigations and scandals, Gwyneth’s extraordinary bounce back from virtual bankruptcy while she served as an MP on the location of Gwynne and Dafydd’s north Wales/Cheshire ring…

 

Sir John Wheeler was Chairman of Reliance Custodial Services Limited, part of Reliance Security Group, 1997-2000. He was Non-Executive Director of security equipment companies Jasmin Plc, 1997-98 and Norbain, 1998-99, and corporate intelligence firm Merchant International Group from 2003. See the source imageWheeler is a Patron of Prisoners Abroad, the Director of which, 1989-93, was Keith Best, the Tory MP for Anglesey, 1979-87, the former Welsh Office Minister, who has been fully on board with the Gang for many years…

More Antonin Artaud

My post ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ discussed some aspects of the Theatre of Cruelty in north Wales that Ronnie Waterhouse detailed in his Report that Ronnie either dismissed with a few throwaway comments or decided not to worry about anyway. I explained in that post that there were so many horrors detailed in the Waterhouse Report that I do not have the capacity on this blog to reproduce most of them, but I did promise to revisit the Theatre of Cruelty in a follow-up post.

So here are a few more details directly related to some of the actors who starred in the Theatre of Cruelty as discussed in ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ and a few other aspects of the Theatre of Cruelty that blows out of the water the notion that Top Docs and other people of far higher status than bottom feeding, minimally qualified (or unqualified), care workers ‘didn’t know’ what was happening in the Theatre of Cruelty.

‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ – introduced the home known as ‘Tanllwyfan’, which like so many children’s homes in north Wales was the site of organised abuse and employed a senior member of staff who later went to prison for assaults on children.

Tanllwyfan was a former farmhouse at Old Colwyn. It was opened as a children’s home in 1916 by the Boys and Girls Welfare Society, whose HQ moved from Manchester to Cheadle. Under the Children and Young Persons Act 1969 Tanllwyfan was categorised as an ‘assisted community home with education on the premises’ ie. a ‘CHE’ and it was operated by the Boys and Girls Welfare Society with Denbighshire County Council and then Clwyd County Council. Obviously there was a very long-standing association between the Boys and Girls Welfare Society and the Gang in north Wales.

Tanllwyfan was located near the children’s and adolescent mental health unit Gwynfa, in which children were raped, buggered, battered, dropped out of the window on their heads, made to wear dog collars and led around on leads… Gwynfa Unit was managed by Nigel Mannering Berry, a former North Wales Hospital Denbigh Angel and the Top Doc responsible for Gwynfa Unit was Dr Barry Kiehn, a mate of Dafydd’s.  Although Gwynfa Unit was located in Clwyd, most of the young patients were referred from Gwynedd. Tony Francis and his colleagues will have been doing the referring. The abuse of the children at Gwynfa was known about by teachers, social workers and clinical psychologists. They all ignored complaints. See eg. ‘Don’t Be Silly, He’s Nice’.

Tanllwyfan was designated in 1971 as a special home available for use of all  the North Wales counties. Some children were also admitted from English Local Authorities in the north west, ie. the Liverpool and Manchester region. The Top Docs in those cities had for years colluded with Dafydd and Gwynne’s criminality, as had the politicians.

Denbighshire Education Committee at that time provided teaching facilities on the premises at Tanllwyfan, but some children attended local schools. ‘Psychiatric oversight and treatment were provided at a nearby child guidance clinic and a psychiatric social worker attended weekly.’ I presume that this is a reference to the notorious Gwynfa Unit.

Gwynfa was so indefensible that it was closed not long before the Waterhouse Inquiry was announced, no doubt because events at Gwynfa would never have withstood scrutiny. There was not even the excuse that the Gwynfa kids were ‘delinquent children in care’; most of the kids at Gwynfa were not in care, they were kids with childhood depression, eating disorders etc…

In the 1979 Regional Plan, Tanllwyfan was available for the use of all Local Authorities within the Welsh region. The educational provision was one teacher and one classroom and there were re-stated provisions for psychiatric, psychological and medical services. However, the future of the home was not very clear from the document because a note stated that it was to close as a CHE in 1980-81, whereas another section of the plan showed it as continuing to be a community home intended to accommodate up to 18 mainly older boys and girls with the same educational provision as before and available to Gwynedd as well as Clwyd. In the event it seems to have accommodated children in the age range of six to 16 years and it eventually closed on 31 December 1984.

So like Bryn Estyn, Tanllwyfan was a children’s home that was closed in the wake of Brown and me refusing to keep quiet about Gwynne during 1984.

On 18 Nov 1984, Lord Maelor aka Thomas Jones, who had served as the Labour MP for the constituency containing Bertrand Russell and Clough’s set at Cwm Croesor, 1951-66, spontaneously combusted in a fire at his home. Lord Maelor was a former schoolteacher who had trained at the Normal College in Bangor, an institution run by Dafydd and Gwynne’s mates; when he was off-duty Lord Maelor relaxed by wearing ladies’ clothes. One longstanding member of Coleg Normal staff from the 1950s, who ended up as Deputy Principal, was Menai Williams, who was a personal friend of Megan Lloyd-George. Menai was also mates with Dafydd et al. See eg. ‘Thought For the Day’. Lord Maelor’s brother Idwal Jones served as the Labour MP for Wrexham, 1955-70. Both Thomas and Idwal grew up near Wrexham. See previous posts…

The 1979 Regional Plan epitomises the confusion that pervaded the welfare services in north Wales; even the official documentation produced by Gov’t was unclear and contradictory, so little wonder that the Gang used any facility for pretty much any purpose that suited them. Hence Dafydd’s ‘Young People’s Personality Disorder Unit’ at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh was a chaotic ward of young people unlawfully detained who were encouraged to have sex with each other while Angels watched the live floor show. See ‘Include Me Out’.

Although Bryn Estyn and Tallwyfan were closed in 1984, kids and staff were relocated to other homes in the region and the abuse of the kids continued in the same vein as before. The world was thus told that the theatre of cruelty had closed down…

I have been told that it was Prof Eric Sunderland, Principal of UCNW, who was responsible for beating the jungle drums and ensuring that a cosmetic exercise was undertaken to ‘clean up’. All senior staff at UCNW were facilitating the ring in north Wales. The Rev Prof Alwyn Roberts, a former Methodist missionary (see previous posts eg. ‘Meet The Gwerin!’ and ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’), was a member of Gwynedd County Council and numerous members of staff at UCNW were training ‘professionals’ in eg. teaching, social work, psychology, theology, who joined the Gang after graduation. Dafydd pulled the strings in the Dept of Psychology. Gwynne sat in the Student Health Centre and his accomplice Dr DGE Wood was married to a Senior Lecturer in the Dept of Plant Biology. In 1984, Nice Young Doctors Dr Evans, Dr Chris Tilson and Dr Lyndon Miles arrived to work in the Student Health Centre; they were all on board with the Gang but were not as grotesquely obvious as Gwynne.

Management of the day-to-day running of Tanllwyfan was vested in a local Committee (managers), including three Local Authority (Clwyd) members, which met monthly at Tanllwyfan. A representative of Clwyd Social Services Dept attended these meetings: Veronica Pares  – Veronica starred in my post ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ as being one of those staff identified by senior officials in Clwyd who was so hopeless that managers of children’s homes were not expected to follow her instructions – attended in the early years when she was Principal Residential and Day Care Officer and later Gordon Ramsay (Principal Social Worker, Children) attended regularly. Gordon Ramsay was a very culpable man re the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. A great many things escaped Gordon’s notice, even violent sex offenders whom Gordon knew of old being promoted or given excellent references to get the hell out of Clwyd and work in senior roles with children in other regions.

The General Secretary of the Boys and Girls Welfare Society also attended the monthly management meetings.

The managers were responsible for the appointment of staff at Tanllwyfan and they reviewed admissions and discharges of children (it was usual for two or three members of the Committee to attend case conferences). It was the practice for a member of the Committee to make a separate visit to Tanllwyfan each month. There was also an ‘independent visitor’ living locally, who was appointed by the General Secretary of the Boys and Girls Welfare Society. An independent visitor living locally would be a member of the Gang, no-one else would have been allowed to occupy that role and there was no shortage of local people happy to help the Gang, it was the only route to success in north Wales. Dafydd was the only game in town.

The Officer In Charge (Warden) of Tanllwyfan when Clwyd County Council took over its part of the shared responsibility for Tanllwyfan was Mr D. Shepherd, whose wife was the housekeeper. The Shepherds resigned in July 1976 and were succeeded by Mr and Mrs Groome with effect from 7 August 1976.

Richard Francis Groome was introduced in ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ as someone who was eventually jailed for child abuse, but only after he had left Tanllwyfan and worked in a very senior position at Clwyd Hall School.

Groome was 36 years old when he took over as Warden of Tanllwyfan, with four years’ experience of full-time social work. Before that Groome had served as a musician in the Royal Marines for 13 years and had then had also served with the NAAFI in South America. Groome had done some part-time work with youth clubs before working as an RCCO (Residential Child Care Officer) for Northamptonshire County Council from June 1972 and served subsequently as manager of a children’s home in Kingston-upon-Thames and then Team Leader for two years at an assessment centre in Hertfordshire. He had also attended the prequalifying in-service training at Ewell College in 1973 and qualified for the CRCCYP ( Certificate in Residential Child Care and Young People) in 1976 at Havering College.

The Leicestershire social worker Frank Beck who was a mate of Greville Janner’s and who received several life sentences in Nov 1991 for the rape and abuse of hundreds of kids in his care had previously worked in Northamptonshire. Beck, with others, is also suspected of having murdered a boy in care; the boy’s death was officially attributed to ‘suicide’ after he ran away from care, but the circumstances of his death suggest that suicide was an unlikely explanation. See previous posts.

Rob Evans spent years during the 1980s and 90s as a senior manager in Gwynedd Social Services. Rob Evans was initially a senior manager of children in care and was then given domain over community mental health teams. Wherever Rob Evans went, clients were abused and found dead. Rob Evans was a graduate of Leicester University and also worked in Northamptonshire. See eg. ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ At one point Evans worked in the Aberconwy social work team with Terence James. In 1986, Terence James was the social worker who arrived in the North Wales Hospital without letting me know who he was or what he wanted. I was being held unlawfully at the time and the next day I was due to appear at Bangor Magistrates Court after a junior doc lied to the police about me attacking him. When I arrived at the Court, I found that the charges against me had been dropped but I was taken straight back to the secure unit at Denbigh because James had sectioned me the day before, either 30 or 31 Jan 1987.

Harold Macmillan, who’s son Maurice swindled and bankrupted my father the year that I was born, died on 29 Dec 1986. I was suddenly released from Denbigh days after Mac’s funeral. I had no access to newspapers in Denbigh and the TV usually was tuned to soaps and I don’t remember hearing that Macmillan had died when I was in there.

I’ve been told that Tom King had something to do with letting the Gang know that I had to be kept under lock and key until Mac’s funeral and the Tributes were out of the way. Tom King was Secretary of State for N Ireland at the time, so he had Kincora and all that depended on Kincora being concealed to think about.

Terence James sectioned me in collaboration with a deeply unpleasant, aggressive Top Doc called Ramiah Ramiah. No-one told me his name either, I discovered their names by sneaking a look at paperwork. I made a note of Terence James’s name and Ramiah’s and also jotted down dates, quotes and other facts on a bit of paper and left it on my bed. It disappeared. When my lawyer finally obtained my medical files in 2005, there was a copy of my piece of paper with notes re the wrongdoing in there.

Re Groome managing a children’s home in Kingston-upon-Thames; Kingston was ruled by Hammersmith surgeon Hugh Bentall. Bentall was a very rich man who owned Bentall’s, the posh department store in Kingston. Brown’s aunty worked in Bentall’s and she and her family (Brown’s mum’s brother Barry Dent and their daughters Katie and Gabrielle) lived in Kingston-upon-Thames. Katie went to Tiffin Girls’ School, was rejected for a place to read law at Oxford in the 1980s and was instead offered a ‘reserved place’ that the school had to read theology at Pembroke College, Oxford. Oxford denied that reserved places still existed in those days. I have more recently been told that Katie’s place at Pembroke was a deal for keeping quiet about my encounters with the Gang. At Oxford, Katie became an official for the Lesbian and Gay Soc and caused a scandal in Kingston when she had a relationship with one of her former teachers from Tiffin. After graduation Katie worked for Gay Switchboard, Centrepoint and the last I heard she was working for Merlin. Katie seems to have changed her name, Brown and I have not heard of her for a long while. Gabrielle went to Bristol University and became a teacher.

Hugh Bentall’s son Richard is a clinical psychologist who trained with Dafydd’s Gang at UCNW and was working there in the 1980s. Richard was married to the daughter of Eifion Jones, the Dean of Science at UCNW. She did her degree in the School of Plant Biology and then trained as an Angel.

Hugh Bentall was perpetrating research fraud himself and only secured his Chair at Hammersmith Hospital after a colleague of his was found dead in the hospital in questionable circumstances and Bentall made a generous financial donation to Hammersmith. Bentall’s secretary doubled up as his mistress and in return she received a degree and a PhD in anatomy and then a lecturing job. See eg. ‘Interesting Facts’.

Adrian Bell, my former tutor in the School of Plant Biology at UCNW, did his degree at Kingston Poly.

Ollie Brooke pleaded guilty to child porn offences at Kingston Crown Court on 18 Dec 1986, four days after Dafydd had me wrongfully arrested and unlawfully imprisoned. The Court at Kingston were not told of the enormity of Ollie’s offending and they were told lies about his academic record and status; the Court knew that they were being lied to as well. See eg. ‘Oliver!’ and ‘Too Many Pills’.

Norman Lamont served as the Tory MP for Kingston-upon-Thames, 1972-97. Lamont was the Minister for Defence Procurement when Ollie was jailed. Ollie’s appeal against the length of his sentence (he didn’t appeal against his conviction, he pleaded guilty) was heard by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane in May 1986 and Ollie’s sentence was reduced; Lane ordered Ollie’s release and Ollie was quietly let out of prison in June 1987. There was of course a General Election held in June 1987 and Thatch won with a landslide. The Windbag had convinced himself that he was going to win and Dr Death believed that his chances were excellent as well. No polls predicted the extent of Thatch’s victory.

Most promotions for Tory Ministers were made immediately after Thatch won once more in June 1987. Yet Norman Lamont was appointed Financial Secretary to the Treasury – it eventually led to Lamont becoming Chancellor under John Major, in which role Lamont crashed the economy – on 21 May 1987. Some two weeks before the General Election that no-one expected Thatch to win, yet the Tories themselves always seemed to approach in a very blasé manner.

Norman Lamont grew up in Shetland, he was the son of the islands surgeon. Lamont and his family knew Sir Douglas Black, who also grew up in Shetland. Black spent much of the middle years of his career in Manchester, working as a Top Doc with the Docs who throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s, concealed the crimes of Gwynne the Lobotomist. Manchester was a real centre of rot but a far more powerful one than was made public. People know about the London and Edinburgh medical elbows, but not many people talk about those in Manchester, which were lower profile but packed a punch because, I suspect, of Gwynne. Lord Robert Platt ruled supreme in Manchester medical circles for decades; Platt wasn’t from a medical family, Platt’s relatives were influential in High Culture, opera, music, theatre etc…

The surgeon husband of Dame Isabel Graham Bryce worked in Manchester until he retired in the 1960s and they relocated to Oxfordshire. Dame Isabel had held senior roles in NHS governance in Manchester, including of the children’s hospital there, but after they moved to Oxfordshire, Dame Isabel became Richard Crossman’s right hand woman re keeping the lid on the NHS abuses and the VIP abuse ring in Oxfordshire. It brought Dame Isabel great influence and was a highly effective method of keeping a great deal of wrongdoing among the dreaming spires quiet. See previous posts…

Dame Isabel was the daughter of Prof James Lorrain Smith (1862–1931), a Professor of Pathology in Belfast and his wife, Isabella. Dame Isabel’s father knew the father of Sir Donald Acheson, Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate who served as Chief Medical Officer, 1985-90, having been appointed, I am told, because I refused to shut up about the Gang…

The daughter of Bertrand Russell’s and Clough’s mate Patrick Blackett who had a second home at Croesor was married to a Manchester surgeon. They knew Eric Hobsbawm who was batting for the Windbag. The Windbag was pandering to Tony Francis; Tony Francis had worked with the Manchester crowd immediately before relocating to north Wales in 1983. His wife Sadie had trained at Manchester Medical School.

Douglas Black publicly wore his Socialism on his sleeve, but an austere Scottish learned Socialism. He was appointed the Gov’ts Chief Scientist at the DHSS in the 1970s and in that role Black Chaired the Black Inquiry into Inequalities. Thatch was PM by the time that the Black Report was finished and she literally threw it straight in the bin. The Top Docs and a lot of social scientists were seething that Thatch had ignored the Great Man’s words of wisdom, but she didn’t give a stuff. See previous posts…

Douglas’s son Andrew is a psychiatrist who has worked with many whom we know and love as discussed in previous posts.

Previous posts eg. ‘Hey, Hey, DAJ How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’ discussed some of what happened to me during 1986-87, including the Gang’s Cunning Plan to frame me for a serious offence and imprison me shortly after the June 1987 General Election. The documentation in my possession demonstrates that the elaborate plan was hatched in early 1987 and involved Clwyd and Gwynedd Health Authorities, the police, the Home Office (Douglas Hurd was Home Secretary), Risley Remand Centre, the Mental Health Act Commission and many people who worked with these organisations… The Leaders of the Tories, Labour and Plaid and Dr Death’s crew knew about it and all hoped to benefit at the polls from Keeping Quiet About The Gang. The one person apart from Thatch who did win from the arrangement was Ieuan Wyn Jones, who got his big break and became the Plaid MP for Anglesey. Ieuan was a bent solicitor who was friends with my solicitor. Ieuan was born in Denbigh where his dad had been a Methodist Minister; he married a girl from a village on the outskirts of Denbigh who worked as an Angel and midwife… It couldn’t have been better for them really could it??? See previous posts for further details of Ieuan, his now deceased wife and their cesspit.

I can work out pretty much what happened at Gov’t level during the first six months of 1987 after Ollie was jailed, but I’m confused as to how the other Party Leaders didn’t realise that only Thatch was going to benefit from the Silence re the Top Docs and the Cunning Plan to frame and imprison me. I think that it was in 1987 that the polls were proved to be completely wrong re predictions of the election results.

I am wondering if the polls were rigged; I am fairly certain that the word went out, but quietly, to all senior Top Docs and others who desperately needed the criminality of the Gang and Ollie’s mates not to unravel to vote for Thatch no matter what they told other people they were voting, but I’m impressed that the pollsters completely missed what was going on. I suspect that the polls must have been rigged; June 1987 was famous for the ‘people too ashamed to admit they voted for the toxic Tories’ effect but pollsters somewhere must have realised what was happening…

It Woz The Trafficking, Murdering Top Doctors Wot Won It!

With a little help from their friends:

 

June 1987 saw the influx of Loony Left MPs into the House, at least in constituencies that returned a Labour MP, although there weren’t many of them… The Loony Left MPs had all previously been Councillors in Local Authorities that were sending kids to children’s homes in north Wales or were hosting rings linked to Dafydd and the Gang…

Brown believes that the security services worked very hard to ensure that the Labour Party remained unelectable throughout the 1980s and much of the 1990s. The security services were keeping a lid on the Gang and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Eric Hobsbawm worked for the security services, as did many others in what had been Bertrand Russell’s crowd.

Well that went well didn’t it Windbag.

Uncle Harry’s nephew understandably became very upset when the Daily Mail published this a few years ago:

Which newspaper found fame for metamorphosing into what Brown described as an ‘abuse sheet’ directed at the Windbag in the run-up to June 1987? Er, the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail should be writing thank you letters to Uncle Harry’s nephew and paying tribute to his security services-linked old dad and his mates, because their desperation to conceal the horror that was Gwynne and Dafydd, with whom so many on the left had colluded kept Thatch in Gov’t, enabling the neoliberal revolution that has done so much damage to so many but not the Daily Mail…

Gwynne’s mate Sir Donald was so influential that Miranda recovered him from the tomb in which he had lain after that embarrassing business re the lies to the general public about BSE and gave Sir Donald Health Inequalities to play with. Health Inequalities have widened since Donald was let loose on them. Donald lied about HIV/AIDS as well… Donald knew that many of the victims of the Gay Plague had contracted HIV from the NHS knowingly using infected blood products on them, rather than their Loose Ways With Rampant, Unprotected Sex. Thus were so many witnesses to Gwynne and Dafydd’s crime empire exterminated, blamed for their own deaths but the Top Docs who killed them enjoyed acres of good PR re their Non-Judgemental Compassion for the dying degenerates. It did wonders for Big Pharma in the long term though, all those lovely expensive drugs that powerful lobbying groups demanded should be made available on the NHS, including Prep….

See eg. ‘Captain Swing and His Crew’, ‘Life In Cold Blood’ and ‘Their Trade Is Fuckwittery’ for details of how the Radicals ensured that the medico-legal complex remained 100% toxic, dominated by serious organised crime and global capitalism prevailed.

 

Richard Groome’s time working at an assessment centre in Hertfordshire took him to the county that was home to Gwynne and Dafydd’s mates Admiral Sir Alec and Lady Juliet Bingley. Lady Juliet was the daughter of Bart’s surgeon Reginald Vick and had trained as a social worker at the LSE. After a career as a Posh Man’s Wife, Lady Juliet felt the call of Good Works once more and became a leading light in MIND. The Bingley’s son William was appointed Legal Director of MIND while his mum was Chair and William later went on to become Chief Exec of the Mental Health Act Commission, Chair of NHS Trusts in the north west of England and Prof of Mental Health Law and Ethics at the University of Central Lancashire. Bingley also worked for Cumbria University, ran a consultancy  and set up a charidee helping Oppressed Wimmin in the Pakistan/Kashmir region. Bingley died in a fell walking accident in 2011, some three weeks after he was obliged to resign as Chair of an NHS Trust when it was found that his consultancy had been flogging its services to the Trust of which he was Chair. William ran his consultancy and the charidee with his wife, a former psychiatric Angel.

Not to worry, Lady Juliet was a personal friend of Dom Mintoff, who served as PM of Malta but was also a senior figure in the Maltese Mafia. Juliet was mates with Gwynne and Dafydd’s pal Richard Crossman, who was also friends with Dom. As was the trade unionist Lord Jack Jones… See previous posts.

Lord Balniel was a big figure in MIND and a pal of Dafydd and Gwynne’s when Lady Juliet first entered the MIND arena. Lord Balniel served as a Hertfordshire MP. His seat was succeeded by Dr Death’s friend Shirl. Shirl covered up Gwynne and Dafydd’s crimes for years, as a Home Office Minister, as Education Secretary and of course as part of the Gang Of Four. Shirl’s first husband Bernard was an Oxford don who worked for the security services, as of course did Dafydd. See previous posts.

The Groomes remained at Tanllwyfan until 11 November 1982 and continued to live in Colwyn Bay until April 1984. From Tanllwyfan, Richard Groome went immediately to work at Clwyd Hall School as Head of Care and then Principal but he left in or about April 1984. It was in April 1984 that I had the operation under general anaesthetic that didn’t need the general anaesthetic at the C&A Hospital, weeks after complaining about Gwynne, as discussed in comments following recent posts. I have been told that I was deliberately given a blood transfusion to infect me with Hep B/HIV. It’s OK, it’s the Gang that we are talking about here, I didn’t become infected. Although knowing how the world works, other people will have instead…

Clwyd Hall School was discussed in my post ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’ Kids were abused there…

After leaving Clwyd Hall School, Groome’s next venture was to found a ‘therapeutic community’ for young people, Milverton Court at Ludlow, Shropshire which occupied Groome from 1984 to 1990. Milverton Court is mentioned in a number of blogs and internet discussions re organised abuse in Shropshire. There was an exchange of staff between Milverton Court and the Bryn Alyn Community. Yet the Shropshire child abuse scandal that received media coverage was that of Castle Hill School, not Milverton Court; the Headmaster of Castle Hill, who played a substantial role in public life in Ludlow, was imprisoned in the 1990s for abusing boys at the school. See eg. ‘The Mentor’.

In June 1989 Yorkshire Television approached Alison Taylor with regard to making a documentary on child abuse in Gwynedd. On 12 Sept 1989, Yorkshire TV filmed Alison extensively for the proposed documentary. In the autumn of 1989, Tony Francis worked very hard to arrange a Case Conference while I was at work at St George’s. I knew nuzzing about this until some four years ago when I obtained yet more documentation that had been withheld from me for decades. The Case Conference was held by Dafydd’ mate Dr Chris Hunter of whom I had never heard until four years ago and evidence about my Dangerousness was provided by people of whom I had never heard as well as Jackie Brandt and Keith Fearns, two Gwynedd social workers. Brandt had unlawfully detained me in the autumn of 1986. Brandt and Fearns went on to perjure themselves repeatedly from 1990 onwards in their attempts to have me imprisoned. Dr Chris Hunter concluded, by November 1989, that I was Extremely Dangerous, Homicidal and he offered to write a Court Report saying this. I was not facing any charges when Hunter made that offer, although I was arrested not long afterwards after the Gang perjured themselves. See post ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’.

In Feb 1990, Yorkshire TV abandoned the Gwynedd documentary for a documentary about Castle Hill School, which was broadcast on 7 May 1991. Castle Hill was bad, but it was not a patch on what happened to kids in care in north Wales.

In Feb 1990, Gwynedd County Council obtained a High Court injunction against me after Keith Fearns and Jackie Brandt perjured themselves. The case was heard at the High Court in Leeds, although all parties concerned lived in Gwynedd. Sir John Kay issued the injunction. See eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

Think Yorkshire, Leeds and TV stars.

Re Groome setting up a ‘therapeutic community’. The Gang loved the idea of therapeutic communities. In 1990/91, Dafydd told Dr Robin Jacobson of Springfield Hospital that he had treated me in a ‘therapeutic community’. When I told Brown that Dafydd had told a barefaced lie to Springfield and they had never checked it out with me (Springfield refused to treat me on the grounds that ‘everything that can be tried has been tried, she even had a place in a therapeutic community’), Brown, as usual, was ahead of me and commented that Dafydd WILL have been referring to Bryn Golau (the locked ‘medium secure’ unit at Denbigh), he’ll have been telling people for years that it is a Therapeutic Community and furthermore they will know that it is a grim facility without the basics yet alone a therapeutic community, but no-one will bother to admit it…

The Therapeutic Community that was Bryn Golau had been subjected to a very damning inspection report just before I was enjoying the Therapeutic Atmosphere there, a report so damning that it was suggested that the Therapeutic Community should be closed asap. The Therapeutic Community was still there 10 years later…

John Allen banged on about Bryn Alyn being a therapeutic community and of course Frank Beck, the senior social worker in Leicestershire who received five life sentences in Nov 1991 for the abuse of over 100 kids in his care, used Therapy as his cover. Beck did truly bizarre things to kids in the name of Therapy and was viewed by colleagues as a charismatic man who was ahead of the game and Could Get Through To Those Kids. I noticed in north Wales that the most extraordinary things could/can be done in the name of Therapy and Professionals never question it. Members of the public do if they get to hear about it, because they haven’t been immersed in the insanity of the world of Therapy and they will ask aghast ‘How on earth is doing that to them ever going to help?’

Ronnie’s Waterhouse Report stated that ‘Since 1990 Richard Groome has been a volunteer worker for SSAFA and director of a leisure company and he has also served as a member of the complaints committee of a regional health authority. We have not investigated the short period of about two years following the Groomes’ departure from Tanllwyfan until it closed because we have not received any complaint in respect of that period’…

The SSAFA referred distressed people to Dafydd for ‘treatment’ for PTSD. See post ‘Feet In Chains’. Field Marshal Lord Edwin Brammall was/is Patron of the SSAFA. Edwin Brammall’s brother Ashley Brammall was a Labour politician who for years held various leading roles in ILEA, while ILEA was sending children on placement to children’s homes in north Wales. See previous posts.

Ronnie’s Report commented that there was some anxiety on the part of Welsh Office inspectors about conditions at Tanllwyfan at the time when it became an assisted community home and there were three inspections between 17 September 1973 and 19 November 1975. The first inspection was triggered by a request by the Boys and Girls Welfare Society for a grant towards the cost of work done on the home, but Welsh Office Social Work Inspector O’Brien was critical of the condition of some of the toilet facilities, ground floor accommod
