HMS Illustrious

When blogging about Sir Peter Morrison, the celebrity with close Royal connections – his sister Dame Mary Morrison was Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to Lilibet – who molested kids in care in north Wales as well as in other places and Keith Best, the barrister and Tory MP for Anglesey, 1979-87, holding junior rank in the Welsh Office who was one of many colluding with Morrison, I have failed to flag up an important link. I do apologise, it was remiss of me, but there is such a mountain of information and so many connections to keep track of with regard to those we know and love that I discover several previously missed links every few hours.

Morrison and Best were both law graduates of Keble College, Oxford. Morrison was born in June 1944, Best born in June 1949. I knew years ago that Best, a snooty English TA officer from the south of England, won’t have arrived on Anglesey to put his name forward as a potential Tory Party candidate for the 1979 General Election for no good reason; Ynys Mon was hardly a suitable habitat for Keith Best and furthermore the Anglesey Conservative Association won’t have chosen him for no good reason. They were very keen on the idea of having Ann Widdecombe as their candidate, but Doris Karloff betrayed them and trotted off to stand in another seat where she thought that she had a greater chance of winning, although on that occasion she didn’t. See post ‘Doris Karloff – Honest About Her Expenses But Not Much Else’.

The then Marquess of Anglesey, George Charles Henry Victor Paget, 7th Marquess of Anglesey (8 October 1922 – 13 July 2013), styled Earl of Uxbridge until 1947, was a very influential figure in the Anglesey Conservative Party. Like Morrison and Morrison’s dad, the Marquess of Anglesey went to Eton, as did the 6th Duke of Westminster, Carlo’s friend, who was President of the City of Chester Conservative Association when Morrison, the MP for Chester, was molesting kids and the members of the association were openly gossiping about this. See previous posts.

I’m not sure if the Marquess of Anglesey was a close friend of Carlo, but when Carlo and Di arrived in Gwynedd on their Royal Visit in autumn 1981, they kipped at the Marquess’s place, Plas Newydd. He was Lord Lieutenant of Gwynedd, 1983-89, so if he undertook those sorts of duties, he might well have hosted Carlo and Di anyway. They couldn’t have stayed in the Castle Hotel in Bangor, because the Gwynedd social workers sold the kids in care for sex in there and it would have been vulgar to flaunt it before Carlo so openly. The British Hotel employed Empowered Service Users to do the washing up for less than 50p/hour and their social workers assaulted them if they refused, so obviously no-one could risk Carlo and Di seeing that going on either. Carlo was Chancellor of UCNW, the institution acting as the vehicle for the gang that was behind these things, but he had to pretend that he didn’t know what was going on. So it was off to Plas Newydd for the night.

The 7th Marquess served as a church warden in one of the village churches on Anglesey. Gwilym Williams, the Bishop of Bangor, 1957-82 and the Archbishop of Wales, 1971-82, who also held an academic position in UCNW (see previous posts), was a paid up member of Dafydd’s gang. The former Bishop of Chester has been named as having abused children. As was Hugh Davies, the choirmaster and organist at St Asaph Cathedral, 1985-98, who in 2015 was imprisoned for child porn offences. There are also allegations that the former vicar of Llanberis was sexually assaulting boys and that his murder by a teenaged boy was an accidental death that resulted from the boy defending himself. See previous posts…

Anglesey Conservative Association told Doris that they were keen to have her because of her anti-abortion stance, but the anti-abortion stance of the Top Docs across north Wales was merely a result of their dedication to doing deals with Dafydd and the private abortionist in Chester, who was putting lives at risk. If girls and women agreed to pay, they were referred on demand to the butcher in Chester. If they didn’t have the money and asked for an NHS termination, they were told that they’d have to stay at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh to be ‘assessed’ by Dafydd, where they would be refused an abortion anyway and their baby would subsequently disappear, but no-one ever explained where. This was happening until the late 1980s, years after the 1967 Abortion Act. See eg. ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – not Arf’.

So who knows why Anglesey Conservative Association were keen to have Keith Best, a hard right Thatcherite who was pro-capital punishment. Shortly after he was elected, Best was involved in a car crash in which his personal assistant was killed. Best was driving at the time, but was not even charged yet alone executed.

Whereas Best was selected as a candidate under Thatch’s leadership, Morrison was selected in 1973, before Heath had been deposed. Patrick Cosgrave – a friend of George Thomas’s who maintained that he did not believe that Thomas was a child abuser (see previous posts) – wrote an obituary for Morrison which was published in the Indie, July 1995, after Morrison was found dead at his house in Belgravia:

In 1973 Peter Morrison secured the Conservative nomination for Chester, a seat which, as he regularly said in private as well as in public, suited him perfectly. At the centre of a thriving agricultural community, with a splendid cathedral, and populated in the main by the most traditional of Tories, Chester returned Morrison, aged 29, to the House of Commons as the youngest English MP in what was for the then Heath government the disastrous general election of February 1974.

By the time that Peter Morrison was elected as the MP for Chester, a paedophile ring had long been in existence in north Wales/Cheshire. Under Heath’s leadership, Morrison was selected for a Tory seat so safe that he won it in the General Election that saw Heath lose power. Morrison’s predecessor as the MP for Chester was the Tory Sir John Temple and he was preceded by Sir Basil Nield. Basil Nield was a barrister who was elected as the Tory MP for Chester in 1940. His appointment in 1956 as Recorder of Manchester led to the by-election that saw John Temple enter the House.

Sir Basil Nield was Recorded of Manchester, 1956-60. As a QC he was appointed as a judge to the newly formed Manchester Crown Court and to the High Court Bench in 1960. Nield had the distinction of serving in every Assize town in England and Wales and published an account of these in 1972. Basil Nield was the MP for Chester when Gwynne was at his lobotomising best and while Dafydd was still a medical student in Liverpool. Basil Nield was a friend of a young barrister at the time, George Carman QC, who until he moved to London after successfully defending Mr Thrope at the Old Bailey in 1979, lived in Cheshire and worked on the Northern Circuit. See post ‘No Ordinary Methods’. Carman was seriously corrupt, friends with bent coppers and outright gangsters and he colluded with Dafydd and the gang as well as with the wider Westminster Paedophile Ring throughout his entire career.

Cherie was a barrister in Carman’s Chambers until 1988 and Miranda was his pupil barrister.

The organised abuse in Cheshire overlapped with the organised abuse in Greater Manchester/Salford. When Morrison was elected for Chester in 1974, Dafydd and Gwynne were rapidly expanding business and would soon expand further when the Children Act 1975, engineered by Westminster Swinger Leo Abse with the help of the then Home Secretary Jim Callaghan (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country), resulted in hundreds of kids being sent into the care of Dafydd’s gang and linked gangs across the UK.

Richard Crossman, the Westminster Swinger who was also a very senior member of the security services, died in April 1974, but while he was Secretary of State at the DHSS, 1968-70, he used the Dept as nothing more than a vehicle to expand and embed organised abuse in the welfare system. Crossman’s legacy is still with us.

The organised abuse in Cheshire/Manchester was linked to Top Docs in Greater Manchester who were close to Dafydd. In 1974, Dafydd’s old friend and former boss who had run an abuse ring from his position at the Maudsley, Dr Bob Hobson, relocated to Manchester (see post ‘The Mentor’), where he joined Professor Hugh Freeman, Dr Michael Tarsh et al who had run the sex abuse ring in the Greater Manchester/Salford area for many years. See posts ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’ and ‘Theatre of the Absurd’. Dafydd’s mate Kenneth Rawnsley had been part of it until 1966, when Rawnsley was appointed Professor of Psychology Medicine at the Welsh National School of Medicine in Cardiff. When Ken arrived there, he not only joined the Top Docs who concealed the crimes of George Thomas, Leo Abse et al in south Wales, but Professor Ken, by then being Mr Upholder Of Standards In Psychiatry for the whole of Wales, rubber-stamped the serious criminality in north Wales and told the world that the Training Of Staff and the quality of care in the Denbigh Dungeon was absolutely fine. This was why there was never a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Hospital, even though after the Ely Hospital Scandal blew up (see previous posts), Ely Hospital defended themselves by asking what the fuss was about because Denbigh was far worse. Kenneth Rawnsley’s wife Elinor Kapp was a child psychiatrist who was a founding Director of one of George Thomas’s medical charidees, which these days goes under the name of the City Hospice, now everyone pretends that they had never met George Thomas. See post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ for info on Rawnsley and his network.

There were organised abuse rings facilitated by Top Docs and Depts of Social Services, with support from a variety of academics, operating in virtually every part of the UK by the 1960s, but in the early 1970s they all linked up together to form one continuous network across the UK, which also fed into networks in Europe and in the US, as a result of pre-existing contacts that the abusers had there in high and low places. Medicine and academia are international and some of Gwynne the lobotomist’s and Dafydd’s buddies eg. Dr Wilfred Abse, made careers for themselves in the US (see post ‘O Jones, O Jones’). Bertrand Russell was a powerful member of the ring in north Wales who spent time himself abroad, including in the US and educated his children there (see post ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’). Ralph Schoenman, Russell’s Secretary, was an American who lived in Croesor and was disliked by the other radicals and activists in Gwynedd, but no-one mentioned why (see previous posts). Scores of the other Top Docs and academics who were members of the Westminster Paedophile Ring themselves, or who were protecting their mates who were, had international networks.

I have discussed in previous posts the farm worker in Somerset who lived near me when I was a kid who, I have been told, was linked to Dafydd’s gang and was spotting potential targets; he was American, it made him a novelty at the time. Then his friend arrived, a young American woman. Americans in Fiddington and Stogursey of all places, who turned up in 1974…

Someone told me the other day to think about the sort of things those Americans did when they made friends with my friends and I; they did things that we perceived as fun, such as taking us camping, on walks and bike rides etc, but they also asked us about our school all the time. I hated my school and I remember at the time wondering why Stuart and Janet were always on about that horrible hell hole when I did my best to forget that it existed when I wasn’t actually inside of it. So of course Stuart and his friend found out that our school employed a lot of teachers who weren’t very nice to us, who had poor relationships with the kids and who would never act if the kids were being targeted by predators and indeed might actually help the predators. Predators would have known that certain kids in certain schools in north Wales and other regions in which abuse rings were at work could also be targeted without anyone asking any questions.

I emphasise that I only even remembered all this the other day after someone told me that what was going on at the time was known by the police and the security services but it was not stopped. Stuart and his friends were the subject of police scrutiny because they were dealing in drugs; I am told that the police saw us going into Stuart’s house, they knew that we were off in the Quantocks camping with his mates and it really didn’t matter to them at all… After all, we were being sized up as to whether we were suitable targets for Dafydd’s international business supplying a whole variety of people including The Posh in a few years time.

Mr Thrope was busy in Devon at that time and in Oct 1975, a hitman tried to kill Norman Scott. See previous posts. It was the Avon and Somerset Police who refused to take Norman Scott seriously when he turned up at a police station – I think it was Bridgwater -distraught, after someone had tried to kill him.

Now everyone’s going to Bring Abusers To Justice. Don’t bother on my account police, I am absolutely not interested. I have only been persuaded to include this part of the story on the blog because someone who’s child died at the hands of this lot has told me that they would like to see someone prosecuted. So if anyone of that view wants to use my blog to help them, that is fine by me, I can accept that others disagree with me re prosecutions. However should someone try and made PR out of prosecuting anyone in relation to crimes committed against me, I’ll arrive in Court and offer to help their defence case. I don’t like people who leave me to die at the hands of a bunch of Top Doctors who doubled up as sex offenders and I have no intention of allowing them to make pompous statements about hunting down offenders on my behalf. Brown and a few other mates looked after me, no-one else. Got that clear police? You really did not want to know.

Stuart also befriended me when my grandpa was dying and info is coming into the blog that it was no coincidence that he did that. He knew that my grandfather had been a Tory activist who had political enemies because of his denouncement of Tories like Edward du Cann as crooks and the man on the far right of this pic as an unprincipled tosser:

A leading Tory in Somerset and Avon during that Thatcher years was Chris Patten, the MP for Bath, 1979-92. Bath became notorious as being the site of the action re Sara Keays and Cecil Parkinson and the pregnancy in 1983. Sara Keays was from a Tory family in Bath and her dad Col Hastings Keays was seriously unimpressed with the treatment of his family by Thatch et al. See previous posts. I suspect that Col Keays was one of the Sir Buftons of whom there were so many in Somerset at the time, who didn’t actually know how bad some of those at the top of the Tory Party around Thatcher were. Like me, my closest friend had a granddad who was an old Tory of a Sir Herbert Gussett nature and she used to remark that her granddad would be appalled if he knew what those in Gov’t were like. At the time they were trying to murder Brown and me and were wrecking our careers, including hers. See eg. post ‘The Turn Of The Screw’.

The lowdown on Somerset life was known to those in High Places, including High Intellectual Places in the Tory Party because of Paul Johnson’s purchase of an estate at Over Stowey in the Quantocks in the late 1970s/early 1980s. Johnson’s son Cosmo was part of the lowlife. See previous posts. Charles Moore aka Lord Snooty also began spending a lot of time in Somerset during those years. Charles Moore was Editor of ‘The Spectator’, 1984-90, then Editor of the Sunday Torygraph, 1992-95. When the marital difficulties of Carlo and Di were discussed in the media in the early 1990s, Lord Snooty stated on ‘Newsnight’ that because he wished to protect the monarchy: “I believe in the importance of concealment in these matters and, if you like, hypocrisy.” Lord Snooty could have fairly asked for privacy re Carlo and Di, but er hypocrisy??? Lord Snooty knew what was happening to us at the hands of the gang and he knew that Carlo was colluding with others to conceal serious crime.

Lord Snooty was born in Hastings, Sussex. His family were Liberals; his dad stood as a Parliamentary candidate several times and his mum was a Liberal County Councillor for Sussex. Sussex was the location of the country homes of some of the Bloomsbury Set who had an outpost in Cwm Croesor in Gwynedd as a result of Amabel Strachey having married Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, an Anglo-Welsh landowner and the presence of Bertrand Russell nearby. See eg. ‘The Village’, ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’. The members of Russell’s extended network were using the services of Dafydd and Gwynne.

and also about his taste for Real Ale. During this period Lord Snooty was already a friend of Oliver Letwin, who also knew about much that has been discussed on this blog.

Moore remained a Liberal into his early 20s, by which time he was at Trinity College Cambridge, with Letwin. The Trinity College which had been at the centre of an elite abuse ring for years, what with Carlo being a student there and Rab Butler being Master of Trinity and Trinity churning out gay spies who used their role in the security services to rape children and ensure that Dafydd and Gwynne et al were allowed to go their own sweet way unhindered. The Cambridge Apostles who evolved into so many of the spies who had their priorities wrong tended to be drawn from Trinity or King’s Colleges. See previous posts.

Auberon Waugh worked with Charles Moore on ‘The Spectator’ and ‘The Sunday Telegraph’; Auberon lived at Combe Florey in Somerset and he knew about Dafydd et al.

It’s not even hypocritically protecting the Royal Family Moore you dipstick, this was/is serious organised crime you deluded stuck-up twat and witnesses were murdered. But then that is one reason why you won’t actually dare speak about it now publicly; you’ll be found dead rather than spending the rest of your life drinking brandy and pontificating with Letwin et al re the shortcomings of the lower orders.


Chris Patten will have had a ring side seat re the Sara Keays business and he will have known that the Bishop of Bath and Wells was concealing abusing clergy as well, including the Rev John F. Rigg of Bawdrip near Bridgwater. See previous posts. Rigg was still the vicar of Bawdrip when George Carey was Bishop of Bath and Wells.

Patten has been Chancellor of Oxford University since 2003. While in that role, his wife, Lady Lavender, acted as Patron for the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, which was established by Professor Mark Williams, while he was employed by Oxford University. Williams launched his Mindfulness fraud in the late 1980s when he worked with Dafydd and the gang in Bangor. See previous posts eg. ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot’.

Mark was joined at Oxford by Professor Tom Burns, who had previously worked with the Westminster Paedophile Ring at St George’s Hospital, where I told him what Dafydd et al were doing and Tom was good enough to tell me that he believed me, that psychiatry attracts disturbed people and it was a big problem. I never saw Tom again, but I later found out that he told another member of the ring that I wasn’t psychotic but I might have a paranoid personality disorder. Tom then used his knowledge of what had happened to me and my friends to get himself a Chair at Oxford. See previous posts.

Lavender is a barrister and in the 1970s she was a big supporter of the Anti-Apartheid Movement. Dafydd’s mate Lord David Ennals was Chairman of the AAM, 1960-64; David Steel, who concealed Cyril Smith’s assaults on children and knew a great deal more about Mr Thrope than he pretended, was President of the AAM 1966-70; and Dafydd and Tony Francis’s pal Professor Hugh Freeman’s big mate in Manchester, Professor Mervyn Susser and his wife Professor Zena Stein, were founders of the AAM. See post ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’.

Top Docs, social workers and others were concealing organised abuse in Oxfordshire, including Barbara Kahan and her child psychiatrist husband Dr Vladimir Kahan; Kahan was appointed as a children’s social work adviser to Sir Keith Joseph at the DHSS in the early 1970s and Kahan remained as a Gov’t adviser for many years. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’. Dame Rosemary Rue’s career was going nowhere until she worked as a Top Doc in a very junior capacity in a hell hole in Oxford where patients were being abused and then the sky was the limit. See post ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’ Richard Crossman’s mate Dame Isabel Graham Bryce was the Chairman of the Regional Health Board for Oxfordshire who was ignoring excesses nearly as bad as those at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and refusing to spend NHS funds on improving conditions, even when she was asked to; the funds were used for machines that go ping another other purposes. See post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’.

Prior to his appointment as Chancellor of Oxford, Chris Patten got in a bit of practise at another university which was concealing organised abuse, when he served as Chancellor of Newcastle-upon-Tyne University, 1999-09, years which covered the publication of the Waterhouse Report and the succeeding years when people shouted angrily that there had been an enormous cover-up. There ring in the North East had direct links to Dafydd’s gang and like the ring in north Wales/Cheshire, it went back many years.  The North East gang had supplied Dafydd’s gang with children and staff; Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth arrived at Bryn Estyn in 1973 from Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead. Miranda’s mate Ernest Armstrong, the Labour MP for North West Durham, 1964-87, had concealed the abuse at Axwell Park and elsewhere when he was a Sunderland Borough Councillor and Chair of the Education Committee. Armstrong was appointed Deputy Speaker in 1979, to Speaker George Thomas and then helped Miranda secure the nomination for the safe seat of Sedgefield… See post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’.

The Mr Big concealing all the crap from his fortress that was Newcastle-upon-Tyne University was the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Dafydd’s and Gwynne’s pal, psychiatrist and neurosurgeon Lord John Walton, who as President of the GMC, 1982-89, ensured that not one of the very serious complaints against Dafydd or Gwynne was investigated. The Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne was appointed Warden of Green College, Oxford in 1983 and remained in post until 1989. See previous posts for the many senior roles and rewards that the Bastard clocked up for allowing the gang rape of children and murder of witnesses.

Patten had himself been a student at Balliol, Oxford – as had George Carman QC – which in the late 1930s, had educated Ted Heath, Denis Healey and Woy Jenkins, all at the same time. Woy was a Westminster Swinger himself, allegations are swirling that Ted was as well and Healey was a nasty old bugger who concealed it all in order to remain in power. See previous posts.

After graduating in 1965 and winning a Coolidge travelling scholarship to the US, Patten worked for the campaign of then-Republican New York Mayor John Lindsay. John Vliet Lindsay (November 24, 1921-December 19, 2000) was a politician, lawyer, and broadcaster. During his political career, Lindsay served as a member of the US House of Representatives, Jan 1959-Dec 1965; Mayor of New York City, Jan 1966-Dec 1973; and after switching from the Republican to the Democratic Party in 1971, launched a brief and unsuccessful bid for the 1972 Democratic Presidential nomination as well as the 1980 Democratic nomination for Senator from New York. After leaving office, Lindsay returned to work in the legal profession, but remained in the public eye as a commentator and regular guest host for ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’. John Lindsay died in Dec 2000. 

Chris Patten worked for the Conservative Party from 1966, first as desk officer and then as Director of the Conservative Research Dept, 1974-79. Matthew Parris worked in that Dept in the 1970s and stated that it was dominated by gay men, one of the senior members of staff spending much of his time cruising on public transport in London. Parris also wrote about group summer holidays taken by staff of the Conservative Research Dept to a venue in Italy known as the ‘villa of shame’, where a good time was had by all, with ‘willing boys’ who were supplied from an unidentified source.

Patten was the Conservative Party candidate for Lambeth Central at the Feb 1974 General Election, but lost to the Labour candidate, Marcus Lipton. By 1974, a huge paedophile/trafficking ring, linked to Dafydd’s gang, was in operation across the whole of south London. All MPs were colluding, but Dafydd et al really were in clover after Lipton died in 1978 and Dafydd’s mate John Tilley succeeded Lipton as the Labour MP for Lambeth Central. Tilley had previously served as the Leader of Wandsworth Borough Council, which, in collaboration with St George’s Hospital, was facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’. Tilley was a graduate of Trinity Hall, Cambridge, who arrived in south London and busied himself settling into and organising the local authorities down there just before John Allen opened the Bryn Alyn Community, to which numerous kids in care from south London would be sent.

Patten was a junior Minister for the N Ireland Office, June 1983-Sept 1985, under N Ireland Secretaries Jim Prior and Douglas Hurd. Patten from Somerset arrived in that post as I and Brown, from Somerset, were targeted by the gang and had been placed under surveillance by the security services. My post ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’ discussed the lazy, dim Jim Prior and his collusion with organised abuse in East Anglia (along with David Ennals and friends) before he ever arrived at the N Ireland Office, as well as his complete lack of interest in, or effort with regard to, the civil war that was taking place in N Ireland and of course the fall-out from the criminal activities at the Kincora Boys’ Home. Hurd succeeded Prior and used his position in the security services to conceal the enormity of the wrongdoing in N Ireland, which was linked to Dafydd’s gang. Hurd was the nephew of a Cambridge botanist who knew one of Profs at UCNW who was colluding with Dafydd’s gang (see post ‘Additional Security Measures) and Hurd was also a friend of Alan Barker, Trumpers’ husband. See post ’95 Glorious Years!’ Trumpers was friends with Rab Butler, concealed the elite paedophile ring based at Trinity College, Cambridge and even managed to make friends with Jimmy Savile and then, in her capacity as a junior Health Minister, appoint him to the general management task force of Broadmoor. See posts ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’ and ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’.

After N Ireland, Hurd served as Home Secretary, during which time he was party to the most serious criminality in north Wales. See eg. ‘Hey, Hey, DAJ, How Many Kids Have You Killed Today?’

Then Patten served as Minister of State in the DES, Sept 1985-Sept 1986, under Secretaries of State Keith Joseph and then Kenneth Baker. The DES at that time ignored serious complaints re kids being abused, particularly SEN kids or kids in residential schools/children’s homes, including in north Wales. Previous posts have explained how Keith Joseph had access to information about Brown and I that we had not given him when we wrote to him about student finance in 1984 and how I suspect that Kenneth Baker was involved in the conspiracy to frame and imprison F in 1986.

On 22 July 1986, Iain Muir, Deputy Headmaster of the Bryn Alyn Community School, was convicted in the Crown Court at Mold of unlawful sexual intercourse with a female under the age of 16, for which he received a sentence of six months imprisonment. The victim was resident at the school for just over three years and was 15 years old when she left.

My house-mate Anne Vernon was killed by the gang in April 1986 and some weeks later, Dr D.G.E. Wood yelled at me that there was nothing for me in north Wales anymore and that I should go somewhere else ‘forget about everything that has happened here and begin a new life’. I went to London in Sept 1986 – not on Wood’s advice, but because I began a Master’s degree – and the gang went after me as well as my friends.

Patten was Minister for Overseas Development at the FCO, Sept 1986-1989. In 1989, he was promoted to the Cabinet as Secretary of State for the Environment and became responsible for the Poll Tax, the policy that is often attributed to having led to the downfall of Thatch. Whether Patten just misjudged or whether he wanted to do us all a favour is not clear. Patten also introduced, and steered through Parliament, the major legislation that became the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Patten served as Chairman of the BBC Trust, 2011-14. In October 2012, ITV broadcast a documentary revealing that the late Savile had been a serial child-abuser and rapist. Police subsequently received more than 400 complaints from alleged former victims. After an initially faltering response, the BBC announced the setting up of two independently-led inquiries, one to examine why the BBC’s Newsnight programme had dropped its own investigation into Savile in 2011 and a second inquiry into the BBC’s “culture and practices” in the years that Savile worked there and whether BBC child-protection and whistleblowing policies were good enough.

On 28 October an article by Patten, as Chairman of the BBC Trust, appeared in the Mail on Sunday newspaper in which he reiterated a public apology over the Savile affair. Patten said “Today, like many who work for the BBC, I feel a sense of particular remorse that abused women spoke to Newsnight, presumably at great personal pain, yet did not have their stories told as they expected. On behalf of the BBC, I apologise unreservedly”. He went on to say “The BBC risks squandering public trust because one of its stars over three decades was apparently a sexual criminal; because he used his programme and popularity as a cover for his wickedness; because he used BBC premises for some of his attacks; and because others – BBC employees and hangers-on – may also have been involved.” Patten posed the question “Can it really be the case that no one knew what he was doing?” Patten said Savile had been “received into the heart of the Establishment; feted from Chequers to the Vatican; friend to Royals and editors. How did we let it happen? And could someone like this con us all again?” Patten declared “The BBC must tell the truth and face up to the truth about itself, however terrible”.

Chris Patten, a Roman Catholic, was for more than 30 years variously a Tory Party employee, activist, MP, Minister and Party Chairman.

Here’s Thatch with one of her close friends who personally lobbied for him to be given a knighthood, although she was told that if this were to happen, his ‘private life’ ran the risk of bringing the honours system into disrepute:

Jimmy Savile sought Margaret Thatcher Stoke Mandeville ...

Chris Patten received national recognition for his services by appointment as Member of the Order of the Companions of Honour in the 1998 New Year Honours. He was given a peerage in Jan 2005.

After Patten lost his own seat in 1992, although he had organised the Tory Party campaign strategy that won them the General Election, he was appointed Guv’nor of Hong Kong, where he acquired the nickname of Fat Pang.


[Peter] Morrison staked out a position for himself on the right wing of the political spectrum. His highly restrictive attitude on immigration – on which he mercilessly harried Roy Jenkins

Woy the Westminster Swinger. Political differences between this lot were irrelevant, these were not principled people and their political interests were eclipsed by their criminal interests and interests in having sex with kids and other people who didn’t want to have sex with them.

– was representative of a strong stream of opinion within the party, as was his strenuous determination to root out social security fraud.

I remember the Scroungers discourse well.

He was fiercely opposed to any proffered schemes for proportional representation, and urgent in his pleas for the restoration of capital punishment.

I am not in favour of capital punishment but among those people who are, those who have committed sex offences against children are often cited as being deserving of the death penalty. Ironically Morrison himself was found dead in his Belgravia house in his early 50s with no convincing explanation for his death being supplied. Sir Peter had joined the First Sea Lord in the Golden Ring in the Sky:

Lord Mountbatten Naval in colour Allan Warren.jpg

He favoured a system of vouchers for education and at one time tried to set up a magazine for the assistance of Conservative school governors.

Sir Peter was taking an interest in those who ran schools then.

But Morrison’s drift away from Edward Heath was less because of his advocacy of these causes than because of his generally critical attitude to the economic policies of the former prime minister and, above all, because of his passionate hostility to any form of Scottish devolution, a cause which for some time Heath favoured. This made him a natural ally of Margaret Thatcher and, over the years, their relationship deepened.
Morrison was one of the few Tories to encourage Thatch and then robustly support her to stand for the Tory leadership, which she won in Feb 1975. A relative of mine had hosted Thatch to lunch when Thatch dropped in on the Bridgwater Conservative Ladies Luncheon Club not long before Morrison told Thatch to go for the leadership…

Thatcher has always prized loyalty to herself as being among the prime political virtues, and, from beginning to end, Morrison was the most loyal of the loyal. Indeed, his last ministerial post, in 1990, was as her Parliamentary Private Secretary.

Morrison being a mate of Thatch and of the Royal Family meant that anything, anything at all, could be done to the proles in north Wales by Dafydd and Gwynne and it would not be investigated.

Ten years previously he had effected a reconciliation between her and his formidable father, Lord Margadale. Margadale, squire of Fonthill, in Wiltshire (and made a peer in 1964), had, as John Morrison, been MP for Salisbury and Chairman of the 1922 Committee; he had campaigned from the Lords against Thatcher in the leadership battle of 1975, while Peter’s brother Charles, MP for Devizes, was like their father, on the side of Edward Heath.

It didn’t matter. They all occupied the same sty, as did their political opponents:

Its Election Special! Your choice!

A hopeless sex offender, but Keble College kept him hanging around and soon welcomed Keith Best into the fold.

After entering the Commons, he served a long apprenticeship in the whips’ office. For three years in opposition he was an assistant whip, and in 1979 he was put in charge of pairing. He made no secret of his desire to become Chief Whip, but his ministerial career took a different turn when he was sent to the Department of Employment as Parliamentary Under- Secretary in 1981.

Morrison’s Secretary of State at the Dept of Employment was Tom King:

lord-tom-king Images - Frompo - 1

He was Minister of State at Trade and Industry for a year and held the same rank at Energy until 1990.

In 1986, however, he became a deputy chairman of the Conservative Party, where it was thought that his combination of administrative ability, grass-roots knowledge

Knowledge of serious organised crime, including that directed at those in north Wales, of which one was me. When my house-mate Anne Vernon was killed by the gang in April 1986, Morrison was at the DTI under Secretary of State Paul Channon – who’s own daughter Olivia died from an overdose at Oxford after a drug-fuelled party; her friends having abandoned her when they realised that she was dying (see post ‘Is The Party Over Yet?’). Morrison was appointed Deputy Chairman of the Tory Party in Sept 1986, which was the month that I left north Wales to begin my MSc at Hammersmith Hospital. I was tracked all the time by the gang. I stayed with my friends at their flat in Bethnal Green when I first arrived in London and they were subsequently visited and threatened by thugs and nasties and then gangsters. See eg. ‘The Turn Of The Screw’.

Patient F was assaulted by the police, framed, imprisoned and then illegally detained for a year in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh by Dafydd and the gang in 1986 after confronting social workers about their mistreatment of boys in the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor, but I didn’t know him at the time.

and persuasive charm would serve the organisation well. He was immediately in conflict with both the Federation of Conservative Students (which he later abolished) and the Young Conservatives. Both organisations irked him because of their lack of discipline, for discipline was high on the list of Morrison’s requirements.

but he did receive the warm praise of Norman Tebbit, who is no mean judge in these matters.
Tebbit has since admitted that it was widely known that Morrison was abusing children and perhaps the Tory Party didn’t take the matter as seriously as it should. You took it seriously enough to go to any lengths to conceal it Tebbs, including the destruction of witnesses lives, framing them for serious offences and failing to investigate when they were found dead even in the most suspicious of circumstances.
In any event, when [Morrison] was made PPS to the Prime Minister it was not generally seen as a demotion. Rather, most of those well placed to judge concluded that she was strengthening her praetorian guard as her political position weakened.
Thatch strengthened her guard by appointing a serial child molester close to the Royal Family who was a member of Dafydd’s gang as her PPS. Morrison was appointed Thatch’s PPS on 23 July 1990. By that time I was working at St George’s Hospital, where my senior colleagues were in touch with Dafydd and facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring; the offer of the job there was a trap of which I was unaware until recently. My post ‘The Bitterest Pill’ details a series of High Court cases brought against me in quick succession during the first half of 1990 by Gwynedd Social Services and Gwynedd Health Authority, as a result of conspiracy between those two organisations and the Welsh Office. In each case, perjury and forgery was involved and one case took place at Leeds High Court, although I lived in Bethesda and the Presiding judge, Sir John Kay, worked on the Northern Circuit and was known to George Carman.

One of the cases took place in July 10 1990, when Gwynedd Social Services took me to Court in Chester and attempted to have me imprisoned on numerous charges of breaching the High Court injunction that they had obtained against me from Sir John Kay in May 1990, on the basis of the perjury of two Gwynedd social workers, Keith Fearns and Jackie Brandt. When I appeared at Chester Court, Fearns, Brandt and their social worker colleague Maggie Fookes, as well as their CPN colleague Bob Ingham, perjured themselves to such an extent that something like 13 or 14 charges against me were thrown out. The Presiding judge, Justice John Roch – he later became Lord Justice Roch – helpfully asked if they would like more time to rewrite their statements, presumably in order to get their stories straight. Their barrister politely turned down the request, but why I have no idea. My post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ provides details of: the perjury; the forged documents, which included a forged letter from a Top Doc, Carl Littlejohns, who had previously been employed at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh; the collusion of the Welsh Office with Ron Evans, the bent lawyer employed by Gwynedd County Council; and the sudden change of judge and Court of which my barrister Suzanne Evans was not told. She was sent to the wrong Court and arrived late and stressed for my case and did not have time to meet me properly. Ron Evans’s daughter was a lawyer who entered the Civil Service and by 2010 was Peter Mandelson’s senior aide.

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

Thirteen days later on 23 July 1990, Peter Morrison was appointed as PPS to Thatch…

When my friend Anne was killed in April 1986, those we know and love would have known that Ian Muir, the Deputy Head of Bryn Alyn Community School would be standing trial for having sex with one of the pupils, for which he was jailed in July 1986.

Morrison suddenly seemed to lose his touch, hitherto a very certain one, in party matters.

I doubt that he had ever been that good, he held his position for reasons other than ability.

He took far too much for granted and was singularly lacking in the pursuit of doubtful votes in the leadership challenge mounted by Michael Heseltine in 1990:

Heseltine was familiar with the Westminster Paedophile Ring, Mr Thrope’s activities in Devon and Dafydd’s gang, being someone who grew up in Swansea and who’s first seat was in Tavistock, Devon, 1966-74. Heseltine tried to capitalise on the Westland Affair in 1986, knowing that Janet Mitchell, an engineer who worked at Westland, knew me and some of what had happened to me in north Wales and Heseltine also knew that I was related to and knew other people involved in politics in the West Country. See eg. ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’. Heseltine also had something to do with Sir Anthony Meyer’s ‘stalking horse’ challenge to Thatch in 1989. Meyer was Of Dafydd, as indeed were all the Tories in his constituency party, although the party was split and they were all at war with each other and he knew what was happening to me and my friends. Meyer was a supporter of Heseltine and hated Thatch; he expected Heseltine to come forward as the serious challenger to Thatch after he put himself up as the joke challenger. Heseletine didn’t do this, but it was never explained why. See previous posts.

Heseltine, was it because in 1989, my friends and I all were still young professionals working in academia and the media, but by the time that you did challenge Thatch at the end of 1990, our careers had been destroyed, we had been smeared and in my case framed for criminal offences, so had any of us popped up with allegations of a sordid deal on behalf of you and your buddies we would not have been listened to?

Heseltine challenged Thatch for the Leadership on 14 Nov 1990. By that time I had been virtually forced out of my job at St George’s and I was trying to find another job. I later found out that St George’s were writing me bad references; the idea was that I should be forced out of medical research and indeed any professional work per se. Thatch resigned on 28 Nov 1990. In Dec 1990 I was arrested in south London on the basis of the perjury of Drs Tony and Sadie Francis. There followed over the next four months a series of attempts by the Drs Francis to have me imprisoned, on one occasion at the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand. Only the best for me. The MDU who supplied their lawyers knew that the Drs Francis had perjured themselves and that I had made very serious allegations about the abuse of patients and criminality in north Wales. The MDU lawyer, Ann Ball and the MDU barrister, Sir Robert Francis QC, also knew this. No-one raised any concerns, although Ann Ball had advised Tony and Sadie Francis no to go ahead with the cases against me because they did not have the evidence for their allegations. They pressed on regardless and in the event, the lawyers were happy to lie in Court. See previous posts.

Heseltine did not become PM, John Major did. Who also knew what was happening in north Wales and to me and used it for his own gain.

Alan Clark claims to have found [Morrison] asleep in his office at a critical point when the walls of the Thatcher battle order were crumbling. When Thatcher went down, Morrison went down with her. A man of considerable personal wealth and real business acumen,

I really would like to know what Morrison’s business interests were.

Morrison had all the resources necessary to stake out an independent political position, but his views were all set out in his first year or so in Parliament, and once he mounted the Thatcher bandwagon he never doubted the correctness of its course. Just as he had won his seat in a bad Tory year in 1974, so he retired from it in an unexpectedly good Tory year, in 1992.

By 1992 the huge cover-up was firmly in place, more witnesses had been found dead and I and two of my friends had had our careers wrecked.

Had Margaret Thatcher survived, he might have gone on to greater things. As it was he will be remembered as an affable right-winger, blessed with money and charm, but without that extra degree of courage, and that extra ingredient of luck, that is required to reach the front rank.

Peter Hugh Morrison, politician: born Fonthill, Wiltshire 2 June 1944; PC 1988; Kt 1990; MP (Conservative) for Chester 1974-92; an Opposition Whip 1976-79; a Lord Commissioner of HM Treasury and Government Pairing Whip 1979-81; Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Employment 1981-83, Minister of State 1983-85; Minister of State, DTI 1985-86; Deputy Chairman, Conservative Party 1986-89; Minister of State, Department of Energy 1987-90; PPS to the Prime Minister 1990; died London 13 July 1995.


Keith Best was born in Brighton and was educated at Brighton College and Keble College, before becoming a barrister Territorial Army Royal Horse Artillery 289 Para Bty and Royal Artillery in airborne and commando forces and as a Naval Gunfire Support Liaison Officer, 1967–89.

Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, the 6th Duke of Westminster, joined the Territorial Army (TA) in 1970 as a trooper and subsequently enjoyed a splendid military career in the TA after officer training at Sandhurst. Gerald owned an estate in Cheshire, as well as other estates and most of Belgravia; he served as the President of the City of Chester Conservative Association while Peter Morrison was their MP. I was told some months ago that Morrison had been sexually abused as a child by Gerald’s father, the 5th Duke, Robert Grosvenor, who lived at the family seat in N Ireland and served as the MP for Fermanagh and South Tyrone, 1955-64. See previous posts.

Boys from Bryn Estyn were taken to the Duke’s estate in Cheshire for work experience and refused to return but wouldn’t explain why. Gerald’s life touched Dafydd’s and the gang’s repeatedly, he was Patron of many charidees with which Dafydd’s network were involved. See previous posts.

Gerald’s family had an historical link with St George’s Hospital and when the St George’s Hyde Park site was flogged after St George’s relocated to Tooting, Gerald asked Thatch for the Hyde Park site – which belonged to the NHS – to be given to him on the grounds that his ancestors had donated it in the 18th century. It was worth a bomb, being a piece of Knightsbridge real estate, so Thatch agreed that Gerald could buy it from the NHS for £6000. In return for the shafting of that group of grads from UCNW and their friends who knew that I had complained about Gwynne, Dafydd and the gang, a central part of the plan being to offer me a job at St George’s where my senior colleagues were running the Westminster Paedophile Ring and ensure that I would be then forced out of medical research for good by them.

Gerald was a good friend of Carlo, Chancellor of UCNW.

The Lord Kelvedon aka Paul Channon, Morrison’s boss when Anne was killed. Channon was a member of the Guinness family.

In 1979 Sabrina Guinness had a romance with Carlo:

Royalty & Pomp: 07/29/15

It was said that Carlo proposed to Sabrina but she turned him down on the grounds that life as a member of that family would be more trouble than it was worth. In 2014 Sabrina married the playwright Tom Stoppard. Tom’s first wife was the legendary Miriam, advert for HRT and agony auntie of tabloid fame. Miriam Stoppard began life as an Angel in Newcastle and became a famous media doc and dispenser of orders to other women on the basis of the knowledge that she gained of the criminality being concealed by the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and his pals in north Wales and the links to High Society in Knightsbridge. Miriam is the auntie of Baroness Oona King, another Baroness who lived on the streets with the best, the Baroness having gone to school with Uncle Harry’s nephews, all of them at the bottom of society together. See previous posts for info on the Stoppards and Oona.

Oona likes to tell media interviewers that the streets from which she came were so mean that when she told her teacher that she wanted to be PM, they told her to be a librarian instead. Well Oona, Brown’s mum was told by his careers teacher that there were good opportunities in wet fish no less and when I told a careers teacher that I wanted to do a degree in zoology, he told me that you had to be ever so clever to go to a Poly but I might be OK for agricultural college. Do Brown and me have traumas over this now? No, we piss ourselves laughing.

Five years later Oona, just before I took my finals, a disgusting old lobotomist propositioned me and his mates who were running a trafficking racket then came after me. They were the people upon whom your Auntie Miriam built her career after agreeing to keep quiet about them and Uncle Harry was mates with them; Uncle Harry’s nephews did some pretty disgusting things as well, along with Uncle Harry’s criminal colleagues, in their joint quest to become PM.


The Cornhill, Bridgwater:

The Cornhill is a nice building, the famous bit of Bridgwater. When we were teenagers, the boys would refuse to go to the public bogs below the Cornhill because they were propositioned by Dirty Old Men in there. The old geezers of Bridgwater installed a load of comfy armchairs under the Cornhill where they would sit on a Saturday afternoon and smoke No 6 fags. Some of the old geezers hanging around the Cornhill had been ruined by the Top Doctors of Tone Vale, the asylum in Taunton. The Cornhill used to have a market next to it where people who couldn’t afford to go into Marks and Spencer could buy clothes with St Michael labels on at a greatly reduced price. I wonder how that was managed?

They were much nicer on the market stalls than they were in Marks & Spencer. The old trouts in M&S ordered the store detective to follow Brown and I around the shop because we laughed at the ‘lingerie’. There were huge pairs of armpit knickers on display with a label saying ‘briefs’ and Brown said ‘look how brief those are’, I started laughing and that was it, aggro.

The wet fish advice from Brown’s teacher was a bit puzzling because there was only one fish shop in Bridgwater, MacFisheries and it closed down anyway. Brown would have been out of a job if he’d followed the careers advice.


Sabrina Guinness’s sister Julia Samuel is one of the godparents of Prince George, as is the 7th Duke of Westminster, Hugh Grosvenor, the son of Gerald, the 6th Duke. Julia is a psychotherapist specialising in grief and worked as a bereavement counsellor in the NHS paediatrics department of St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, where she pioneered the role of maternity and paediatric psychotherapist. In 1994 Julia helped launch and establish Child Bereavement UK and as Founder Patron, continues to play an active role in the charity.

Prince George’s dad William was born at St Mary’s Paddington, where he was delivered by Royal Top Doc Sir George Pinker, a friend and colleague of Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain, one of those at St George’s facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See post ‘Wimmin’s Wellbeing -The Fortnum and Mason Connection’.

Diana crashed in Aug 1997, during the Waterhouse Inquiry. Anyone for bereavement counselling?

New conspiracy claim in Princess Diana death sparks talk - CNN

Julia is married to Michael Samuel, of the Hill Samuel banking family. Dafydd’s mate Prof Robert Bluglass’s father was Henry Bluglass, the Chief Accountant of M Samuel & Co. In 1965, M. Samuel & Co. merged with Philip Hill, Higginson, Erlanger’s Limited to form Hill Samuel & Co. Limited. In 1985, Hill Samuel Australia was restructured as Macquarie Bank Ltd. In 1987, Hill Samuel was taken over by TSB Group plc. By 1995, the merger of TSB Group plc and Lloyds Bank led Hill Samuel to become a subsidiary of Lloyds TSB, now restructured and renamed as Lloyds Banking Group. Lord Kenyon, President of UCNW, 1947-82, was a Director of Lloyds Bank. See post ‘The Mrs Mills Experience’.

Lord Kenyon’s son, Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon, was known to be sexually abusing at least one boy in care in north Wales. Thomas never faced any charges and died from an HIV related condition in 1993. See previous posts…

Julia was appointed MBE in the 2016 New Year Honours for services to bereaved parents of babies.

Julia is a Vice President of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, an organisation to which many of the abusive therapists in north Wales and elsewhere belong.


Re Gerald Grosvenor and the TA: in April 1992, Grosvenor was appointed Lt Col and then Col in Dec 1994. He was promoted to Brigadier in Jan 2000, one month before the publication of the Waterhouse Report and in 2004, Gerald was appointed to the new post of Assistant Chief of the Defence Staff (Reserves and Cadets) with promotion to the rank of Major-General. In March 2007, the Duke handed over this responsibility in the wake of the Eliot Spitzer prostitution scandal in which Gerald was involved. See previous posts. Having been named as someone who was paying an absolute fortune for the services of high class call girls for which the Duke went all the way to the US, the Duke became Deputy Commander, Land Forces (Reserves) in May 2011. In 2011 Operational Pallial was launched to reinvestigate the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. Tony Francis killed himself in 2012, which was the year that Gerald decided to retire from the Armed Forces.

Brown’s dad was an officer in the TA, then served in the regular Army – Col Brown was one of the few TA officers to keep his rank when he transferred from the TA into the regular Army – then when he was older and chilling out, he transferred back to the TA again, retaining his rank. Col Brown was found dead during the Waterhouse Inquiry.

Despite the Duke’s very poor educational attainments, he was given several honorary degrees and fellowships in later life and ‘took an outward looking interest in youth’. The Duke was Director of the International Students Trust, 1976-93, Pro-Chancellor of Keele University, 1986-93, Chancellor of Manchester Met, 1992-2002 and Chancellor of the University of Chester, 1995, serving until his death in 2016.

Gerald Grosvenor was a supporter of, and a committee member for, the Prince’s Trust, as well as Patron of the Trust for North West England from 2001.

The Duke of Westminster died on 9 August 2016 at the Royal Preston Hospital in Lancashire, after suffering a heart attack at his Abbeystead estate. Ah the doctors they were wonderful and although they always do their best, they can’t save everyone. Particularly those who have spilt the paedophiles’ pints or indeed key supporters of the gang if it looks as though the police might be knocking on doors. Dafydd and Lucille are in their late 80s; their longevity is no doubt entirely due to them keeping fit, watching their weight and not smoking. Dafydd was an alkie for years and was also ripped to the tits on class A drugs, but he seems to have survived those excesses.

See previous posts for further details of the 6th Duke, his friends and family and the close relationship between him and Carlo.


Keith Best served as a Brighton Borough Councillor, 1976–80. John Allen owned brothels in Brighton to which he trafficked kids in care from children’s homes in north Wales. East Sussex had been a centre of activity for Dafydd and Gwynne’s network for decades as a result of members of the Bloomsbury Group having links with the Welsh Blooomsbury Set who had second homes at Cwm Croesor and were mates with Bertrand Russell and Clough and Amabel Williams-Ellis. See eg. ‘The Village’, ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’.

Lord Asa Briggs, Harold Wilson’s mate who worked for the security services and served as VC of Sussex University (see previous posts), concealed the wrongdoing of the Brighton branch of Dafydd’s gang. Merfyn Jones, VC of Bangor University, 2004-10, seriously pissed Asa off when he and two of his friends, as students at Sussex in 1967, threw red paint over a visiting US official in an anti-Vietnam protest. Asa made a nuisance of himself for ever after. See post ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’.


Keith Best was selected as the Tory candidate for Anglesey in the run-up to Mr Thrope’s Old Bailey trial and when Dafydd’s gang were in hot pursuit of Mary Wynch. Best was forced to resign as MP in 1987 as a result of him being prosecuted after making multiple illegal applications for BT shares and then being jailed for a brief time. Public life and indeed charidee work continued for Keith, however.

In 1987 Best became the Chairman of the Executive Committee of the World Federalist Movement, a position in which he remains. Best is the former Chair of Parliamentarians Global Action. A deeply humane and charitable man, Keith Best was Director of Prisoners Abroad, 1989-93 and Chief Executive of the Immigration Advisory Service, 1993–2009. He was Chairman of the Council of the Electoral Reform Society, 1998–2003 and served on its Council for fifteen years. Best was Chairman of Electoral Reform International Services Ltd 2004-14 and is Chairman of Conservative Action for Electoral Reform.

The enormous quantity of green paint of the Renault is illustrated by Best’s role leading the charidee SurvivorsUK, 2015-2018. SurvivorsUK is a charidee established to help male survivors of rape and sexual abuse. It is not only a source of wonder that anyone appointed Best to this position but no-one has actually publicised the fact that as MP for Anglesey and a minion in the Welsh Office, Keith Lander Best concealed a paedophile/trafficking ring which targeted boys.


The SurvivorsUK website provides this account of their history:

SurvivorsUK was founded in 1986 by Martin Dockrell and Richie McMullen. In their work with other organisations (Martin as a helpline worker at Lesbian and Gay Switchboard and Richie as the Director of Streetwise, a charity for male sex workers) they had taken calls from male survivors of rape, and had identified the lack of an appropriate service for these callers. From this, the idea for SurvivorsUK was born as a helpline service. Charitable and company status was attained in 1989.

In 1993 a Survivors Counselling Service was developed at Wharfside Clinic, St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. In the following year a three year grant for core funding was received from the Department of Health. Between 1996 and 1999, the Survivors UK Helpline was open for three 3 evenings each week and groups were being run from the Globe Centre, Mile End. In 1998 a multi-agency group was formed with Metropolitan Police focusing on Adult Male Survivors of Sexual Assault.

1999 saw the launch of the SurvivorsUK National Male Rape Training Initiative Project started with funding from the Department of Health and the Community Fund. Core services were part-funded by the Lloyds TSB Foundation, and the Helpline moved from workers’ own homes into premises at the CABOT Centre, Kings Cross. A grant was received from the Charities Aid Foundation to develop a fundraising strategy, and employ a fundraiser.

In 2000 the SurvivorsUK National Male Survivors Centre Project began, securing a home for the organisation and funded by the Department of Health. Core funding was secured from the City Parochial Foundation & Esmee Fairbairn. Rent and running costs for the next two years of the National Male Survivors Centre Project was received from the Lloyds TSB Foundation and in 2002 the National Male Survivors Centre opened in London Bridge.

Over the following years the services delivered by the organisation grew quantitatively in a reactive manner and further funding was secured through a series of Section 64 grants from the Department of Health and trust funding from The City Parochial Foundation, Allen Lane Foundation and Lloyds TSB. The organisation remained in London Bridge and moved premises from Swan Court to Morrocco Street in 2006.

In 2006 SurvivorsUK received 3 years funding from the Big Lottery to secure the Operations Manager post and part fund the core costs of service delivery. The organisation was invited to participate on the Metropolitan Police Operation Sapphire Advisory Board and on the Home Office Stakeholders Advisory Panel for Rape and Sexual Crime. In 2007 further trust funding was secured from The Tudor Trust and The Rayne Foundation to secure the Clinical Services Manager post and cover a shortfall in core costs. Additional funding was secured from the Home Office Victims Fund.

In 2009 the organisation moved into its dedicated service centre in Holborn, central London. At the same time, 5 year funding from the Big Lottery Reaching Communities programme and a further 2 years funding from the Tudor Trust was won, securing the salary costs of the organisation. Additional funding from the Ministry of Justice and the Home Office have stabilized the charity’s finances and allowed for a program of strengthening and development to be instituted.

2011 marked the 25th anniversary of SurvivorsUK operations and the charity delivered a series of fundraising and awareness building events including a gala concert featuring Lesley Garrett, Ian Shaw, Meow Meow, The London Gay Men’s Chorus and many others. This in combination with a landmark art event and participation in several London running events raised in excess of £30,000 over the year.

In 2012 the charity went to market with “Real Men Get Raped”, an advertising campaign aimed at adult male rape victims. The campaign created a stir in the media and resulted in exposure to a potential audience of over 18,000,000.

2013 saw SurvivorsUK on the move again, this time to new dedicated premises in Shadwell, E1.  This year also saw the launch of the digital emotional support services.

In 2014, SurvivorsUK was the primary beneficiary of the Ministry of Justice Male Rape funding stream which has allowed the organisation to create the National Male Survivors Website resource and to increase its national digital support offering to 72 hours per week.  The organisation has also appointed the first male specific Independent Sexual Violence Advisor for London and continues to broaden and deepen its partnership working to ensure that male survivors have the best opportunities to receive support for a broad cross spectrum of problems.

If anyone in Bethesda who knows Dafydd has encountered this website, it’ll be a matter of ‘Jesus Christ’…

There is a picture of a Union Jack on the SurvivorsUK website accompanied by the words ‘funded by the UK government’.

As Home Secretary, Theresa organised the rigged Macur Review, which covered up the cover-up which was the Waterhouse Inquiry. See previous posts.


My post ‘Murder In Samarkand’ discussed the careers of Anna Walker, the daughter of Lord Jack Butterworth, the VC of Warwick University, 1963-85, Lord Jack, as well as Lord Jack’s wife, Lady Doris. Lord Jack was a friend of Richard Crossman, Westminster Swinger who, when he was Secretary of State at the DHSS, 1968-70, built and expanded upon the work of Dafydd’s mate, Minister of Health Sir Kenneth Robinson and ran the DHSS as a huge vehicle for the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Lord Jack participated in corrupt business practices and kept secret files on students. Lady Doris kept herself busy with concealing abuse at the local psych hospital in Warwick and was also the President of the Royal College of Midwives when that organisation was concealing the abuse of pregnant women and their babies in north Wales, at the hands of Dafydd, Gwynne and the gang.

In 1970, the students at Warwick University held a sit-in at the Registry and discovered the files which contained evidence of Lord Jack’s wrongdoing. Two of the postgrad students were Merfyn Jones and one of his friends, who later became a junior Minister in Miranda’s Gov’t. Dafydd and the gang, assisted by Miranda and others, declared war on Merfyn after he was appointed VC, because he gave me a place to do a PhD and then a job at Bangor University. His friend from their days at Warwick also came under fire for clearing my name when the gang made fallacious allegations against me in an attempt to have me struck off the teaching register. Merfyn’s wife Nerys was targeted by the gang as well, having spilt the gang’s pints previously.

Much of the fire to which Merfyn was subjected came from the North West Wales NHS Trust and in 2008 Nerys died at the hands of Dafydd’s mates at the Walton Centre, having been referred there by the NHS services in NW Wales. Miranda appointed Jack Butterworth’s daughter Anna as the Chief Exec of the Healthcare Commission in 2004, as the gang went apeshit in the direction of Merfyn and then in 2005, Anna produced a glowing report with regard to the mental health services provided by the NW Wales NHS Trust. The Trust had just attempted to frame and imprison me, there had been numerous very serious complaints which had not been investigated and the Trust ran the most dangerous psychiatric unit in the UK and presided over the second highest suicide rate among women in England and Wales. Anna was still CEO of the Healthcare Commission when Merfyn’s wife died. Anna stepped down in 2009, once Nerys was safely dead and the Walton Centre was still deemed to be Globally Excellent.

Anna’s previous included working as a senior civil servant in the Dept of Employment when Peter Morrison was a Minister there, under Secretary of State Tom King. Anna is married to retired mandarin Timothy Walker. Timothy Walker served as Director General of the Immigration and Nationality Directorate, 1995-98. Keith Lander Best served as Chief Executive of the Immigration Advisory Service (IAS), 1993–2009...

The IAS website some 10 years ago explained: ‘IAS is the leading charity giving legal advice and representation services to immigrants and asylum seekers free to those who are eligible. IAS was created in 1993 out of the former United Kingdom Immigrants Advisory Service (UKIAS: established in 1970) as an independent organisation publicly funded under the 1971 Immigration Act to provide free advice and representation to persons with rights of appeal against refusal of their applications. Together with UKIAS, therefore, IAS has over 35 years’ experience of helping those facing immigration and asylum difficulties. We now have offices throughout the UK and in Sylhet (Bangladesh).’

He was appointed Honorary President in 2005.


Jack Butterworth was a barrister and a member and honorary Bencher of Lincoln’s Inn. Lord Denning, who spent a career concealing serious wrongdoing on the part of the state including that of Dafydd et al, was a member of Lincoln’s Inn, as was George Carman. So is Miranda, Cherie and of course His Honour Judge Mota Singh QC, Keith Best’s friend.

Miranda and Cherie’s friend and colleague Michael Beloff QC was at Eton with Peter Morrison. Beloff is the son of Lord Max Beloff, who was a friend of Thatch (see post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’) and Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council, 1981-91, when the paedophile ring swung in the children’s homes in Gwynedd and Clwyd (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’). Michael Beloff was the legal adviser for Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council and the North Wales Police, who ensured that the 1996 Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council was completely suppressed, read by no-one but lawyers and insurers and was then pulped. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’.

My post ‘The Bloody State We’re In’ detailed the background of Stuart Errington, one of the Directors of Municipal Mutual in 1996; another Director was Merlyn Rees, who as N Ireland Secretary, 1974-76 and Home Secretary, 1976-79, concealed Dafydd and the gang’s crimes and those related to Kincora. Rees was born in south Wales and was the Labour MP for a Leeds constituency, 1963-92, while Savile’s crime empire included Leeds. Merlyn Rees was an LSE graduate of the time when so many of those Of The LSE were involved with the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts.

Stuart Errington was the Chairman, National Association of Citizens Advice Bureaux. Lucille Hughes has for many years been involved with the senior management of the CAB.

Stuart Grant Errington was born on 23 June 1929.He was the son of Sir Eric Errington and Marjorie Bennett and married Anne Baedeker in June 1954.  Stuart Errington died on 16 Nov 2017 at age 88.

Stuart Errington was educated at Rugby and then went to Trinity College, Oxford. He gained the rank of 2nd Lieutenant in the Royal Artillery. Errington was with Ellerman Lines, 1952-59 and was with Astley Industrial Trust between 1959-70. Errington was a JP for Berkshire in 1970. In 1977 he became MD of Mercantile Credit. Errington was a Director of Barclays Merchant Bank, Barclays Bank UK , Kleinwort Overseas Investment Trust, Northern Electric 1989–96, Nationwide Building Society 1989–97; Errington was Chairman and Chief Executive of Mercantile Group, 1988-89.  He held the office of Deputy Lieutenant of Berkshire in 2000. He lived at Earleywood Lodge in Ascot.

Stuart Errington was a Director of Municipal Mutual Insurance from 1989. Municipal Mutual Insurance employed Michael Beloff QC as their legal adviser – who advised them not to make the contents of the Jillings Report available to anyone…Municipal Mutual told Clwyd that if they revealed the contents of the Jillings Report to anyone, even the Councillors, Municipal Mutual would withdraw their cover and the Councillors themselves would be personally liable for paying damages if any of the former kids in the care of Clwyd sued. Municipal Mutual also demanded that Councillor Malcolm King – who had been asking questions about the abuse of children for a long while –  be sacked if he got hold of the Jillings Report and disclosed the contents. Municipal Mutual were also the insurers of the North Wales Police who refused to co-operate with the first investigation into the abuse of children in north Wales. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’ for the full story.


One of the Civil Service mandarins who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the serious criminality of Dafydd and the gang over many years was Sir Lancelot Errington, but I have been unable to find out whether he is a relation of Stuart Errington. Lancelot Errington was the Under-Secretary of State at the Cabinet Office, 1965-68 and at the Ministry of Social Security in 1968, Assistant Under-Secretary of State at the DHSS, 1968-71, Deputy Under-Secretary of State at the DHSS, 1971-73 and became Second Permanent Secretary in 1973. Errington died in 2011.

Tam Dalyell wrote Sir Lancelot’s obituary which was published in the Indie, Jan 2012,  under the heading Civil Servant Who Helped Found The Welfare State’:

Happily married to the same lady for 70 years, Lance Errington – it did not occur to us to call such an unpompous and witty man Lancelot – was a hugely effective civil servant who devoted his working life to welfare and his social life to keeping friendships in first-class repair.

Errington was born in the then ancestral home at Beeslack, Penicuik, the son of Major Lancelot Errington, who was fighting with the Royal Scots in Flanders at the time, and was subsequently to farm at Quinish on the Isle of Mull. I asked him how many servants there were in his childhood. “About 20,” came the matter-of-fact reply.

With the prospect of being packed off to the Spartan, cold-bath regime of Belhaven prep school at seven, the family arranged for him to have boxing lessons. Errington told me that boxing had taught him to stay cool and keep a firm grip on his temper.
From Wellington Errington went to Trinity College, Cambridge, winning first class honours in History
So he either worked for the security services or was closely linked with people who did.
and entry into the Home Civil Service. With the prospect of war, he joined the RNVR.
Mountabatten, Sir Admiral Alec Bingley, Sir Norman Denning etc… See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’.
After basic training, in January 1940 Errington was given command of a mine-sweeping trawler, tasked to patrol the Firth of Forth and the approaches to Rosyth, based in Granton Harbour.

He recalled being at anchor in the Forth of Tay off Dundee when a signal came through that the German invasion fleet was on its way. “Our instructions were to set out to sea, to meet the German Armada, and if necessary to ram the German ships.” With a chuckle – Errington often chuckled – he added: “By the grace of God the instruction turned out to be a false alarm.”

Seconded in 1944 to work for the Admiralty in Bath, he found himself required to share an office with John Betjeman. With a twinkle, he complained that he would often discover the future Poet Laureate sleeping under his desk after a well-oiled lunch.

Gay spies in the Admiralty etc. See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’. John Betjeman was friendly with Mary, Harold Wilson’s wife, who knew that her husband and his Gov’t were involved with serious organised crime. Betjeman’s daughter Candida Lycett-Green was one of the founders of ‘Private Eye’, at the centre of celeb world in the 1960s and 70s and as her father and many of his social circle did, knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See post ‘Come Friendly Bombs’.

Again and again, people who played a part in the creation of the welfare state eg. Sir George Godber, Lord Charles Hill, Nye Bevan, have been hailed as saints, yet they are the very same people who built abuse and neglect of the most vulnerable and the poorest into the structure and ensured that professional people benefited the most from the welfare state; their status as beyond reproach allowed them to conceal serious crimes, even murder.

I first encountered Errington when he had been seconded to the Cabinet Office to try to sort out Lords reform. He and his colleagues came up with proposals for a two-tier chamber of voting and speaking peers. Errington was unsurprised when it was rejected by politicians in May 1968. As I had been Dick Crossman’s PPS,

That’s one hell of an admission. See previous posts for details of Dalyell’s own collusion with serious wrongdoing and his constant attempts to smear his political opponents by deception; Dalyell, like so many of Crossman’s crowd, was also working for the security services. This lot had all the resources necessary to build an excellent, equitable welfare state. Instead they stuck their noses into the trough as deeply as possible, used their privileged positions to have sex with children/disadvantaged young people or organise that for their friends and then banged on at length about having created a haven for The Poor.

Sir Lancelot, with his aristocratic background, spartan regime of cold baths far from home and boxing lessons at seven years old, fulfils the stereotype of the posh man who had serious damage inflicted upon him when he was young and then as an adult couldn’t quite understand that grown men gang raping boys of 12 really was not acceptable under any circumstances.

a fly on the wall, on that occasion, I reminded Errington of it after he had retired to his beloved Fashnacloich in Appin, Argyll. “Lords reform,” he grunted. “Mission impossible. Two years I wasted.”

Sir Michael Wheeler-Booth, later Clerk of the Parliaments, was a member of the Inner Civil Service Working Group on Lords reform in 1967, along with Michael Moriarty, from the Home Office, and Errington from the Cabinet Office.
Errington was the right hand mandarin to Harold Wilson’s Cabinet of crooks and endemic corruption.
He recalled, “Lance was an old-style civil servant, correct with ministers, and who did not kow-tow to them. I would go to a complicated meeting with complicated papers, and next day Errington as secretary of the group, would have produced detailed and accurate minutes. It was a genuine honour to have worked with him in those days.”

Sir Patrick Nairne, his First Permanent Secretary at the DHSS, told me: “I was responsible for the oversight of this huge department. Lance, as one of two Second Permanent Secretaries, looked after his side of the department very efficiently. Whenever I phoned him, he knew the answer.” Errington’s mastery of complexity also won golden opinions from Brian O’Malley, the influential Minister of State directly responsible for pensions.

In her diaries Barbara Castle, then Secretary of State, records Errington being at her side in her formal encounters with Treasury ministers on Sunday 4 April 1976: “Lance Errington and Co are fighting magnificently on my behalf … I can leave it to them to do the infighting.”
Barbara Castle was a vain ruthless woman who didn’t just conceal organised abuse and the lobotomies and crimes of Dafydd and Gwynne etc, she also concealed the deaths of some 30 children with cerebral palsy in the care of an inner London borough. See previous posts.

The last 30 years were a time of extreme happiness for husband and wife, his son Humphrey told me: “She, a potter of no mean talent, established a studio in the former vestry, and he immersed himself in the affairs of the community and church as well as being able to indulge his passion for sailing on board his boat.”

It came as a surprise to Whitehall colleagues that this Whitehall warrior should take himself off to a remote part of Scotland. It need not have, since for the next third of a century Errington achieved his wish, to immerse himself and his wife in the West Highlands – according to his son because “he had grown tired of the company of High Heidjins in London, and wanted to live among normal people again.”

Lancelot Errington, senior civil servant: born Penicuik, Midlothian 14 June 1917; Ministry of National Insurance 1945-65; Cabinet Office 1965-68; Department of Health and Social Security 1968-76, Second Permanent Secretary 1973-76; CB 1962, KCB 1976; married 1939 Katherine Reine (died 2009; two sons, two daughters); died Kirkcaldy 18 October 2012

An obituary for Sir Lancelot also appeared in ‘The Times’ in Feb 2012:

Sir Lancelot Errington was a senior civil servant who, in 1945, helped to implement the recommendations of the Beveridge Report, which was closely linked to the foundation of the welfare state…

Errington was a modest man of the old school of civil servant, who believed in duty and discretion. The veteran Labour MP Tam Dalyell, a friend since 1967 when both were working on reform of the House of Lords…

He was born at the family house, Beeslack, Penicuik, Midlothian, in 1917, the eldest son of Major Lancelot Errington and Elizabeth Hall Sanfor. He was delivered by the doctor, who arrived in the snow on a horse-drawn sledge. Errington was educated at Bellhaven Hill School, Dunbar, at Wellington College in Berkshire and at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he graduated in 1939…

The same year he joined the Home Office and married Reine, the only daughter of Tom Macaulay, MC, and Katharine Kinnear. Having also joined the RNVR on the outbreak of war, he was immediately called up to serve as a lieutenant in command of a minesweeper off the Firth of Forth. “I remember a signal came through that the German invasion fleet was on its way,” he recalled. “Our instructions were to set out to sea to meet the German armada and, if necessary, to ram the German ships.” Fortunately, that turned out to be false alarm…

He was appointed CB in 1962 and KCB in 1976.

Lancelot bagged his CB at the time of Profumo and his KCB in the year of the great panic; the year that Wilson was pushed by the security services and resigned because there was a real fear that the Mr Thrope scandal was going to unravel and the mass abuse/sexploitation of children and others and the lengths to which Whitehall and Westminster been gone to conceal this would be exposed.

On retirement, he and Reine moved to Argyll — not to the Isle of Mull where his father had farmed at Quinish, but to Glen Creran near Appin. There his wife, a potter of no mean talent, established a studio and he immersed himself in the affairs of the community and church as well as being able to indulge his passion for sailing on his boat, Neil Gow, named after a pirate ancestor.

After his wife’s death in 2009 he moved to Fife, where he had spent some of his childhood…

Some of the Top Docs keeping the lid firmly nailed down on the cess pool, such as Lord Robert Kilpatrick, came from Fife. St Andrews University is in Fife, an elite university much loved by Top Docs; Robert Bluglass is one such graduate of St Andrews. St Andrews is the location of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, the grandest golf club in the UK, which serves as a Mecca for the Top Docs. See post ‘Remember Girls – Never Get Into A Car With A Stranger!’.

Phil Davison beat the Indie and ‘The Times’ to it, having paid tribute to Sir Lancelot in ‘The Scotsman’ in Nov 2011:
AS COMMANDER of a Royal Navy minesweeper in the Firth of Forth during the Second World War, Sir Lancelot Errington helped defend Scotland and the UK against what appeared to be an imminent Nazi naval attack. It never happened – not least because of the pre-emptive defences of the Rosyth Command of the Home Fleet, including Royal Navy volunteers such as Errington. Although part of the old Scots gentry, Errington was always known simply as Lance. He went on to become one of Britain’s most senior civil servants, a key player in the biggest government projects of the 20th century – construction of the welfare state and the national health service. As a civil servant rather than a party politician, his role went largely unrecognised outside Whitehall, yet cannot be underestimated. He was one of the UK’s finest public servants of the post-war years. He ended his career in 1976 as a permanent secretary in the Department of Health and Social Security, when Barbara Castle was the department’s secretary of state.
…Errington was not one to bamboozle his political boss with verbose speeches. Along with the department’s other permanent secretary, Sir Patrick Nairne, he ran the department on a day-to-basis and effectively acted as its chief executive. In that, according to the late Mrs Castle herself, in her diaries, he not only succeeded but was “brilliant”. For the last 35 years of his life, Sir Lance lived…at Fasnacloich, near Port Appin, Argyll – becoming a much-loved stalwart of his local church and community. “I think he had grown tired, generally, of the company of high heidyins [in London] and wanted to live again among normal people,” said one of his sons, Humphrey. Knighted by the Queen in 1976,
Carlo was appointed Chancellor of the University of Wales the same year and George Thomas was appointed Speaker of the House as the panic rose re Mr Thrope.
Sir Lance left Whitehall that year, somewhat disillusioned by what he considered the “mischievous” interference by party politicians into the work of the Civil Service.
They were in a grade A sweat. Just look at what they had been doing.
He foresaw the era of the“spin doctors” whose job was to put their bosses’ survival ahead of the aspirations and needs of those who elected them…. One ancestor, also called Sir Lancelot (or sometimes Launcelot) Errington briefly captured Lindisfarne Castle, Northumberland, in the first Jacobite rebellion of 1715. Lance’s father was Major Lancelot Errington, who had fought with the Royal Scots during the Great War and later farmed at Quinish on the Isle of Mull. His mother was Elizabeth Hall Sanford. (Beeslack House is now the site of the Aaron House care home and the estate also houses Beeslack Community High School). The family seat may not have been quite as grandiose as Downton Abbey, but Lance remembered having at least 17 servants…
…he rowed for Trinity and was president of the Magpie & Stump, an old Trinity society devoted more to humour than debate. It was at a history lecture at Cambridge that he met the love of his life, Reine (née Macauley) and, with war having broken out, they married in October 1939….
Errington was among a group of civil servants tasked with properly implementing the so-called Beveridge Report. Their work played a central part in constructing the welfare state we take for granted today, including the NHS. Errington helped set up the Ministry of National Insurance and, as departments changed names or merged, also worked in the Ministry of Social Security. He had a spell in the Cabinet Office as right-hand-man to Prime Minister Harold Wilson at a time when Wilson was pushing for reform of the House of Lords.
…Knighted as Sir Lancelot, he and Reine moved to the Highlands. They bought the former St Mary’s church near Port Appin, where Reine, a keen potter, set up a studio in the vestry. The couple quickly became stalwarts of the community and of the Church of the Holy Cross at nearby Portnacroish. As members of the Royal Highland Yacht Club, they indulged their passion for sailing aboard their yacht Neil Gow.
It’s All For The Benefit Of The Poor!
After Reine’s death in 2009, Sir Lance had difficulty living in the relative isolation of his Highland home. He moved this year to live with his sisters in Elie, Fife. He suffered a massive stroke on 16 October and died in the Royal Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy two days later. Sir Lancelot Errington is survived by his children Lindsay, Tom, Humphrey and Elizabeth, three grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and by a brother, John, and sisters Elizabeth and Jane.


Meet Sir Lancelot’s brother, Major John Errington, as advertised on the internet:

Sir Lancelot’s sister Jane Errington was, like her brother who did so much to conceal the en masse sexual, physical and mental abuse of children and vulnerable people as well as the associated serious organised crime, dedicated to the welfare of the unfortunate. Jane died in 2015 and her obituary appeared in the ‘British Journal of Occupational Therapy’:
Jane Errington, 1923-2015
Jane was one of the Scottish pioneers who broke down barriers and created opportunities for many disabled people. Indefatigable yet self-effacing, she was a person with vision and a creative drive, celebrated professionally for the setting up of St Jude’s Laundry in Edinburgh and for her contribution to establishing Riding for the Disabled in Scotland. Before the Second World War she completed a course in Institutional Management, leading to work as a cook in a military hospital and later as a shepherdess on the family farm on Mull.
Aspiring to a career with a medical background, in 1945 she joined the first intake of the two and a half year course run by Dorothy Bramwell and Mary Cunningham at the Astley Ainslie Hospital Occupational Therapy Training Centre. From 1948–53 she worked in mental hospitals at Rosslynlee, Midlothian
Conditions and the treatment of the patients will have been abysmal
and then in Vancouver, Canada. In 1954 she joined the Grenfell Mission in Newfoundland, firstly at St Anthony’s Hospital as an occupational therapist and then at a smaller remote hospital in Labrador as housekeeper/dietician. Conditions were tough
If this was admitted in the obituary, it will have been a living hell for whoever was in the smaller remote hospital
and resulted in frostbite to fingers and toes – an ongoing problem in later years. In 1955 she furthered her studies by entering the newly developed occupational therapy course at Columbia University in New York, returning to Edinburgh to become head occupational therapist with the Scottish Council for the Care of Spastics (SCCS, now called Capability Scotland) in 1956. This covered Westerlea School, an assessment clinic at Rhuemore and later St Jude’s Laundry.
She set up St Jude’s Laundry in 1961, the first sheltered workshop for people with cerebral palsy (then termed spastics) in Britain. Levin (1964) described her feat of clear-sightedness in envisaging ‘a scheme of employment
which would enable hitherto unemployable ‘‘spastics’’ to become self-supporting, and, would, at the same time, provide a useful service to the public’.
So Jane put them to work, hard unfulfilling work and they won’t have been paid either.
Despite many obstacles, St Jude’s Laundry was eventually given support and approval by the then Ministry of Labour, becoming fully commercial in purpose-built premises in 1976, and by 1988 was awarded a Royal Warrant by the Queen to do the laundry for Holyrood Palace.
Weren’t the spastics supposed to be providing a useful service to the public?
Jane aimed to show what folk could do, not what they couldn’t.
They could do the washing.
In 1959 Mrs More-Nisbett of the Drum, on the south edge of Edinburgh, had encouraged a little girl with polio to ride the family pony. Jane was approached to expand the idea, as the occupational therapist working at SCCS. A keen horsewoman herself, she responded enthusiastically. With medical approval, ponies were brought to both Westerlea and Rhuemore, and by 1962 there were regular weekday and Saturday sessions. The benefits of this new form of therapy were readily observed. With Mrs More-Nisbett’s continuing interest and generous support, in 1966 the first Riding for the Disabled Group in Scotland was set up. An indoor Riding School was built at the Drum and formally opened by the Princess Royal, President of Riding for the Disabled.
Dafydd’s gang dominate the Riding for the Disabled in north Wales. I never found out what the gang were getting out of it, but there’ll have been a catch, they did not do things out of altruism.
Now working full time at the Drum, Jane wanted to enable people with disabilities to experience many of the activities enjoyed by others. She took small groups of 3–4 young disabled riders, plus ponies and one or two volunteers, for 4–5-day holidays to Fingland, a very basic bothy with two rooms, no telephone, no electricity and only cold running water, which was 2 miles up a farm track in the Peebleshire hills. These holidays were hugely popular and keenly anticipated each year.
I would probably quite enjoy such a holiday, but I suspect that Jane Errington might have not found many people like me hanging around. I can imagine that some of the ‘holidaymakers’ found it in a highly distressing experience, but Jane Errington would have not taken no for an answer. It was the laundry and then the holiday.
Jane’s home in Elie with an adapted flat also became the base for holidays for disabled people.
Get the mop out serf, the floor needs cleaning.
In 1982 Jane was awarded the MBE for her work with Riding for the Disabled.
She served on the Council of the Scottish Association of Occupational Therapists (SAOT) on and off from 1950, was vice-chairman from 1965–68
and accepted the role of co-convenor of the SAOT Journal until it ceased in 1972. Her life was very varied but with occupational therapy philosophy underpinning much of what she did. She was a keen weaver, storyteller and
letter-writer to her many friends worldwide.
Jane did not work in the laundry herself.
What a life she lived and how much she gave to others, achieving it with vision, energy, humility and humour.
This fairy-tale about the life’s work of a woman who made damn sure that no-one dared reveal the catalogue of abuse and misery – as well as those deaths of children with cerebral palsy in local authority care – that disabled people experienced when doing Lilibet’s laundry while her brother ruled supreme in the corridors of Whitehall was penned by Joy Blakeney, Clephane Hume, Catherine Paterson and Averil Stewart. A reference is supplied: Levin, A.K.M. (1964) ‘Cerebral Palsy: The Pioneer Years of Occupational Therapy in Scotland’.
‘The Scotsman’, Aug 2015, also remembered Jane Errington:

Born: 17 December, 1923, in Milton Bridge, Midlothian. Died: 10 July, 2015, in Fife, aged 91. Jane Errington was one of those indefatigable women whose myriad achievements made it almost impossible to define her in a single entity. She had variously been a cook, shepherd, occupational therapist, dietician to Inuit and other inhabitants of remote Labrador, horsewoman, champion of the disabled, dedicated charity supporter and one of the architects of both Riding for the Disabled and St Jude’s Laundry in Edinburgh, both causes endorsed by royalty.

However, the common factor at the core of all she did was a profound concern for others and her enthusiasm and determination changed the lives of many, thanks to her propensity for concentrating on what could be done rather than what could not. The youngest of Major Lancelot Errington and his wife Elizabeth’s four children, she was born at the family home at Beeslack, Milton Bridge, Midllothian. Educated at Miss Campbell’s school in Elie, Fife and then Oxenfoord Castle School, Midlothian, she did a course at the Edinburgh Cookery School in the capital’s Atholl Crescent but her first job resulted in a warning never to cook again – from a doctor who discovered her with badly infected fingers. She failed to comply with his instruction in future but went on to train as an occupational therapist at Edinburgh’s Astley Ainslie institution. After the outbreak of the Second World War she joined her family

The son and heir of which was the major cog in an enormous VIP paedophile ring which targeted kids in care and disabled people

at Quinish on Mull where her father, a former Royal Scot, had become a farmer. There she became a shepherdess, caring for their herd of sheep.

In peacetime she resumed her career in occupational therapy, working at the Rosslyn Lee Mental Hospital near Edinburgh before heading off to Canada to work in a similar institution in Vancouver. She returned to Scotland before sailing for Newfoundland in 1953 to join the Grenfell Mission. Established by British medical missionary Wilfred Grenfell, the organisation provided health services to the area where virtually no medical help existed. She began work at the main St Anthony hospital and then moved to a smaller, more remote facility at North West River, Labrador where she was housekeeper/dietician. Conditions were much harsher there: the supply of heating and hot water was erratic; there was one store but icy conditions prevented deliveries for the six months of the year from December to May; the only road was just three miles long and journeys had to be undertaken either by sea or by husky-drawn sledge. The weather was so bitter she suffered frostbite on some of her fingers and toes, leaving a lasting legacy of problems.

So what sort of ‘smaller more remote facility’ was this? It can’t have been suitable for caring for disabled people, no matter how unentitled they were. Was it er perhaps a punitive facility dressed up as a ‘hospital’? They certainly couldn’t run away if they didn’t like it there; neither could the kids in ‘children’s homes’ in the middle of Snowdonia that Jane’s brother ensured stayed there until they agreed to take up sex work. The Erringtons didn’t have a track record of making life tolerable for people on the receiving end of their largesse.

But by 1954 she was on the move again – to Columbia University, New York, to study a new course of occupational therapy – before returning to Scotland where she worked with what was then known as the Scottish Council for Spastics (SCS), now Capability Scotland, at various facilities in Edinburgh.

The catalyst for Riding for the Disabled came a few years later when Sheila More Nisbett invited a little girl, disabled by polio, to ride on the family pony at Drum outside Edinburgh. It was such a success that an experienced rider and instructor, Jane Crawford, was asked to help expand the idea. Jane Errington was then approached as the occupational therapist with the SCS. Over the next few years ponies from Drum were brought to the SCS out-patient department at Rhumore on Edinburgh’s Corstorphine Road and riding in the garden became a regular fixture, later expanding to include children at the city’s Westerlea School. Then in 1965 the Drum Riding for the Disabled group was formed and Princess Anne went on to become president of the Scottish Riding for the Disabled Association.

Meanwhile Miss Errington had also been working on her next project – investigating the possibility of establishing a workshop for those unable to find work in the open jobs market. It was eventually decided that laundry work would provide the most appropriate form of employment and a washing machine was installed in the garage at Rhumore. However, there were many hurdles to be overcome while gaining approval for the project, a struggle that was reflected in its name, St Jude’s, patron saint of lost causes. But once the project had garnered support plans were submitted to the Ministry of Labour and subsequently approved. A training programme was fully established in 1962, much to the delight of Miss Errington, who was heartened that the transition had been made from therapy to industry,

I am deeply cynical about ‘therapy’, having seen what it was used for in north Wales, but this idea of Jane’s for the spastics sounds horrific even by the standards of sheltered workshops of the early 1960s. Doing a morning in the laundry would be fine, but what’s the betting that they were forced into there and worked longer hours than the full normal working day, five or six days a week?

and five years later the laundry became a fully commercial enterprise in purpose-built premises in Restalrig. St Jude’s Laundry continues to thrive today and has enjoyed 25 years as a Royal Warrant holder.

Miss Errington, who became head occupational therapist at SCS and set up its employment department, continued to support those with disabilities in her own free time. She particularly loved helping out at Fingland Bothy, a rudimentary property three miles up a farm track in the Border hills. With no phone or electricity and just cold running water, she would assist parties from Riding for the Disabled, cooking for them on the range and riding out to check on the sheep. She also used to invite disabled friends to her home in Elie, ensuring the accommodation was all set up to cater for their needs, and in 1982 her work was recognised when, as a member of the executive committee of the Scottish Council for Spastics, she was made an MBE.

Although the Spastics Society changed its name to Scope, the complaints that residents were being abused continued… The Duke of Westminster was involved with Scope. David Hanson, MP for Delyn and PPS for Miranda when the gang tried to frame and imprison me, 2002-04, worked for Scope before he was elected. Hanson and his wife Margaret colluded with Dafydd’s gang and served as Councillors in Cheshire when Dafydd ran the abuse ring in Cheshire… See previous posts…

When Jane Errington received her MBE in 1982 distress flares from Dafydd and the gang were being sent up after Mary Wynch had begun legal action. Lord Kenyon was pushed out as President of UCNW as the Gwerin conducted a civil war and another of Dafydd’s mates, Sir William Mars-Jones, was installed in Lord Kenyon’s place.

keen horsewoman herself, she and her sister Meme went on a long-distance ride in Iceland in the early 1980s. She also took up carriage driving but a couple of riding accidents left her in severe pain. She broke her hip coming off a horse and returned to the saddle too soon, resulting in another fall. This time her injuries left her with one leg several inches shorter than the other. She also suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and was in a wheelchair for the last ten years. A dog lover, keen weaver and storyteller – an attribute that made her an affectionate and entertaining aunt, great aunt and great-grand aunt – latterly she took up watercolour painting and wrote and illustrated her own stories. Determined, gregarious and generous, she corresponded with friends around the world and gave to numerous charities, living her life with a strong Christian ethic, loving her neighbour and at the same time working to improve the world immeasurably for many others.

Think that Lancelot Errington was unprincipled and dangerous? He had an accomplice at the DHSS, the First Permanent Secretary, 1975-81, Sir Patrick Nairne. Sir Lance was about cold baths in the middle of the Highlands and wearing nothing under one’s kilt while thrashing seven year olds to toughen them up, whereas Sir Patrick was a Gentleman of High Culture and Refined Tastes.

To summarise: Sir Patrick Nairne (15 August 1921 -4 June 2013) attended Radley College and then University College, Oxford. His career in the Civil Service started in the Admiralty. Why are we not surprised? Patrick was Master of St Catherine’s College, Oxford, 1981–88. In 1982, Nairne became a member of the Privy Council when he became a member of Lord Franks’ Inquiry into the Falklands War. See previous posts. Nairne was a Governor of the Ditchley Foundation. He was Chancellor of Essex University, 1982-97 and an Honorary Fellow of University College, Oxford.

Nairne was the first Chair of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, 1991-96.

Sir Patrick’s obituary appeared in the Torygraph in Jun 2013:

By the time he retired, in 1981,

Get out quickly, Mary Wynch has begun legal action.

Nairne was facing a wave of unrest in the NHS over the policies of Margaret Thatcher’s government and their consequences for public sector jobs. But he was equipped for this, too: in 1948 he had helped work up “Operation Zebra” to put sailors into the London docks during an unofficial strike. And as head of the Cabinet Office’s Civil Contingencies Unit in 1973-74, he had kept essential services going during the fuel crisis and the three-day week.

Patrick Dalmahoy Nairne was born on August 15 1921, the son of Lt-Col CS Nairne. From Radley he won an exhibition to University College, Oxford, but interrupted his studies in 1941 to join the Seaforths, attaining the rank of captain. The Seaforths fought their way across North Africa, and in 1943 took part in the invasion of Sicily. Nairne served as intelligence officer with the 5th Battalion, and had the dangerous habit of climbing trees to get a better view of the battle. In August he was awarded an MC after he had reconnoitred forward under heavy enemy fire to produce swift and reliable reports. A few months later the regiment landed at Anzio.

Returning to Oxford on demobilisation, Nairne took a First in Modern History, and in 1947 joined the Admiralty. He first came to public notice in 1958 as private secretary to the First Sea Lord, Lord Carrington.

Carrington, like Quintin Hogg aka Lord Hailsham, went back so far in the Tory Party that he too was there with Mountbatten and the gay spies in the Admiralty. It was the beginning of a slippery slope for Carrington; years later it was he who was responsible for ordering the torture of terrorist suspects in N Ireland. The people who did the torturing included Army psychiatrists known to Dafydd and were concealing Dafydd’s crimes as well as those committed at Kincora. See previous posts.

Arriving at Portsmouth dockyard, Nairne, dressed in yachting-style Admiralty “uniform”, went up the gangway of the minesweeper Sheraton — ahead of Carrington — and was mistakenly piped aboard.In 1965 he became private secretary to the Defence Secretary, Denis Healey. Two years later he was appointed assistant secretary for logistics, and in 1970 deputy under-secretary. He moved to the Cabinet Office in 1973 as second permanent secretary, taking charge of the Civil Contingencies Unit. But instead of returning to the MoD after two years, he went to the DHSS,where he robustly defended its continuance as a single department rather than two.

As a single Dept, it was easier to co-ordinate everyone needed to perpetrate and conceal the wrongdoing. It also made it a very powerful Dept which enabled those facilitating trafficking rings to yell loudly and demand that their requests be met or Fings Would Break.

In the fervid atmosphere of the times, Nairne became concerned at the impact on civil servants’ morale of attacks by the media. In 1977 he wrote to Douglas Allen, head of the Home Civil Service, suggesting steps to secure “true understanding” of their work. Nairne’s fellow mandarins liked the idea, feeling that civil servants were being blamed for decisions taken by ministers. Allen set up a “working group on publicity” to ease the criticism — especially of the Inland Revenue, Customs & Excise and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Centre at Swansea — but the initiative ran into the ground.

The Thatcher government set Nairne new challenges. His secretary of state, Patrick Jenkin, instructed him to cut social security jobs and health quangos, but as the economy stalled they strove to limit the impact of recession on the welfare state…

Patrick Jenkin was a mate of Ronnie Waterhouse’s who colluded with Dafydd et al. Jenkin’s legacy lives on in his son, Lord Bernard Jenkin and daughter-in-law, Baroness Ann Jenkin. See previous posts.

In 1981 Nairne left Whitehall to become Master of St Catherine’s; he also became an honorary Fellow of University College, Oxford. He launched the 25th anniversary appeal at St Catherine’s and supported Edward Heath’s unsuccessful campaign to be Chancellor of the university. He stood down in 1988 as some dons at St Catherine’s were mobilising to offer Mrs Thatcher a fellowship – a move from which he distanced the college.

His success at Oxford led Essex University to appoint Nairne its Chancellor, from 1983 to 1997. His first action was to bestow an honorary degree on Carrington, who had recently resigned over the Falklands.

Barely were those hostilities over than Nairne was appointed to Lord Franks’s committee, charged with ascertaining whether the invasion should have been anticipated. Many expected the government to be blamed, but the committee exonerated ministers and the Foreign Office of having failed to heed warning signals.

The warning signals which included General Galtieri announcing that he intended to invade the Falklands.

In 1984 Nairne called for a five-year bar on civil servants taking jobs with companies with which they had dealt during their careers. He told the Civil Service Select Committee: “I did not think it would be right for me to take a job in the pharmaceutical industry or the medical equipment industry, and certainly not in the tobacco industries, simply because I had had a good deal to do with that part of the private sector.”

Nairne’s sense of propriety also stopped him migrating to the Far East to run a string of child brothels, it would not have been right for him to have capitalised on all that experience of that part of the private sector that he had acquired at the DHSS.

In the same year he was appointed, with a local judge, to monitor reaction in Hong Kong to Sir Geoffrey Howe’s agreement to hand the colony over to China in 1997. They found overall acceptance, qualified by “concern and anxiety” about what the communists would do..

Fat Pang’s future job was assured.

 in 1996 [Nairne Chaired] a Commission on the Conduct of Referendums. From 1990 to 1992 he chaired the west regional board of Central Television.

With his wife, he was active in Church politics, and from 1993 to 1998 served as a Church Commissioner.

Nairne will have known about so many of the dirty vicars and raping Bishops, including perhaps the Rev Rigg and certainly the molesting Bishop of Chester and Carlo’s pal Bishop Peter Ball.

Sexual abuse coverup by Anglican Church includes the ...

Peter Ball was the  suffragen Bishop of Lewe (in Sussex), 1977-92 and the diocesan Bishop of Gloucester, 1992-93, when he resigned after being cautioned for sexual abuse; he continued to officiate at several churches after that. In October 2015, Ball was sentenced to 32 months’ imprisonment for misconduct in public office and indecent assault after admitting the abuse of 18 young men over a period of 15 years from 1977 to 1992. Further charges of indecently assaulting two boys, aged 13 and 15, were allowed to lie on file in a contentious decision by the CPS. He was released on licence in February 2017.

Gwilym Williams, the Bishop of Bangor, 1957-92, was a paid up member of Dafydd’s gang, held academic appointments in the University of Wales, including at UCNW and served as Archbishop of Wales, 1971-82.

My post ‘Amber Rudd, The Miners’ Strike and A Memory Jogged’ discussed a family who lived just down the road from me on Anglesey in 1983-85. They had recently moved to Anglesey from Birmingham and were having a hard time. They were trying to make a living by running a small shop and post office; the father of the family was a man in his 50s who had multiple health problems and it was the mother who ran the PO and shop to make a very meagre living. There were three teenaged children and I got to know them and discovered that the youngest girl had been ‘rescued’ by the family, while they had lived in Birmingham, from ‘terrible cruelty’. The girl told me herself one day that she could never thank the family enough, they had saved her life. The family were all very loyal to each other; it became obvious that they were subject to a great deal of malice from local people.

The older teenagers were academically able and had been due to sit a whole string of O levels just before they moved to Anglesey; Ysgol David Hughes at Menai Bridge simply refused to enter them for the exams. The oldest girl was targeted as a ‘girlfriend’ by a notoriously abusive young man from Bangor which caused her parents enormous worry. Rumours were put around – indeed I was told as well – that the teenagers of the family were involved with crime. They weren’t.

The family were having such a hard time scraping a living at the shop that they applied for a licence to sell alcohol. The first that I knew of this was when a man turned up on my doorstep in the summer of 1983 and demanded that I sign a petition to stop this. I refused and told him that the family were in difficulties and that I wasn’t going to add to them needlessly. The man became very angry, shouted at me that he used to be the vicar here – so he was the former vicar of St Tegfans at Old Llandegfan – and that Dr Dafydd Alun Jones from Denbigh was very worried about this family and their plan to sell alcohol would encourage drunkeness and alcoholism. This was the first time that I had ever heard Dafydd mentioned. I told the vicar that the theories re off-licenses causing alcohol problems were related to people being able to purchase big quantities of booze cheaply and anonymously from supermarkets. No lace curtain alcoholic was going to go into the shop at Old Llandegfan and knock back the booze, the whole world would have known.

The vicar was very angry indeed that I would not sign the petition of hate and he ran off down the path shouting at me. I have been told recently that he reported straight back to Dafydd HQ that there was a girl in the vicarage in Old Llandegfan who refused to sign the petition…

The family did not get their licence to sell booze and the unpleasantness toward them continued. The shop went out of business and just before that happened, the father of the family died. He so obviously had never received the medical care that he needed. The two older teenagers both left school without qualifications, although they succeeded in getting jobs in local businesses and then became management trainees. They looked after their mum and the younger girl who’d been rescued from cruelty in Birmingham.

I realised years later that this family had been under attack from the gang, presumably because of the ‘cruelty’ that they had witnessed the younger girl being subjected to and from which they had rescued her. The last time that I spoke to them was many years ago, when I told the older girl what was beginning to happen to me at the hands of the gang, not realising that they were under attack from the same people. That was circa 1987; life was going well for her, she had begun to earn a decent salary as the manager of the office of a local bakery. She had brought a small house and her mum and younger sister lived with her. I didn’t see her again but about a year later, the bakery for whom she worked went out of business after trading for many years and all staff were made redundant.

When this family were targeted, Keith Best was the MP for Anglesey.

I wouldn’t have put it past the gang to have laid siege to the bakery who employed Jane, in the way that Merfyn Jones was subjected to an all-out attack because he gave me a place to do a PhD and then a job…

Gwilym Williams’s successor as Bishop of Bangor, Cledan Mears, also enjoyed a cosy relationship with the gang. See previous posts.

Perhaps Patrick Nairne knew why, after the Rev Wynn Roberts of Bangor was obliged to leave his job as a vicar after a relationship with a parishioner when they were both married to other people, he was then given a job by the NW Wales NHS Trust as the chaplain at Ysbyty Gwynedd. In which capacity he ignored the abuse of patients in the Hergest Unit. The Rev Wynn, excelling as the hospital Chaplin, was promoted to senior management level by the NHS Trust, given responsibility for the ethics committee and sat on Mental Health Review Tribunals and a few years ago took up a side-line as an Elvis impersonator, which was constructed by the NHS as being music therapy for the patients. See post ‘Music Therapy Anyone?’.

Nairne was also, at various times, president of the Association of Civil Service Art Clubs, the Oxfordshire Craft Guild, Modern Art Oxford, the Radleian Society and the Seamen’s Hospital Society; vice-president of the Oxford Art Society; and chairman of the Irene Wellington Educational Trust and the Society For Italic Handwriting.

He was a trustee of the National Maritime Museum, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, the National Aids Trust and Oxford School of Drama .

Dafydd’s network of Radical Leftists dominate the JRF and everyone involved with AIDS concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the gangs like Dafydd’s that fed into it because the rent boys who died of AIDS in the late 1980s/early 90s were the former kids in care who had been forced into sex work. The Pioneering AIDS Wards were at the Middlesex Hospital, Gwynne’s alma mater, which protected Gwynne and Dafydd for their entire careers. The Middlesex was situated in Bloomsbury with Soho nearby. See previous posts…

He was appointed CB in 1971, KCB in 1975 and GCB in 1981. He was sworn of the Privy Council in 1982.

The Guardian’s tribute to Sir Patrick read:

Sir Patrick Nairne, who has died aged 91, was one of Britain’s great, and most enlightened, public servants at a time when they had the opportunity to shine. A highly civilised man of rare talents and interests, he rose to the top in Whitehall through administrative and managerial flair – virtues he combined with humanity, a deep appreciation of the arts, and enthusiasm for facing difficult intellectual and moral challenges.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones


He spent most of his career in the Ministry of Defence – he came from a military background. But after a spell in the Cabinet Office in 1975, his special qualities – a real belief in public administration and an ability to run organisations, including the chairing of meetings, effectively – were recognised by the prime minister, Harold Wilson, who appointed him permanent secretary, the official head, of the mammoth Department of Health and Social Security.

Denis Healey, one of Wilson’s cabinet stalwarts, described Nairne in his 1989 autobiography as “the perfect choice for the most difficult two years of my service as defence secretary, when I was taking my most important decisions on equipment, commitments and strategy … Unfailing courtesy and a pretty wit made him a joy to work with.” The agendas and priorities of the DHSS were very different from those he was used to at the MoD. Yet he drew parallels between them, comparing the often tense relationship between civilian administrators in the MoD and military chiefs with that between DHSS civil servants and the consultants and drug company lobbies.

Kincora and the associated murders in the midst of a terrorist campaign spanned the MoD and the DHSS. As did this:

Born in London, Nairne was the son of a colonel in the Seaforth Highlanders and he married a daughter of a colonel…He joined his father’s regiment and after fighting in the Battle of El Alamein and recovering from wounds in Tunisia, he took part in the invasion of Sicily in July 1943. In recognition of his initiative and outstanding bravery searching for and identifying weak points in enemy positions at Francofonte, north-west of Syracuse, he was awarded the Military Cross.

Vice Admiral Sir Normal Denning:

Norman Denning was a Royal Naval and Intelligence Officer at the Admiralty and Defence Intelligence Staff who served as Director of Naval Planning, 1945-56, Director of Naval intelligence, 1960-64 and Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff for Intelligence, 1964-65.

Norman’s brother was Lord Denning who was such a loyal friend the Dafydd and the network that he even took part in a ‘Jim’ll Fix It’ programme with Dafydd’s pal Savile.

  • Here he is, listening to a recording of that phone call in 1987 in which Dafydd told me that if I withdrew my complaint about him he’d get me a place at Liverpool medical School:
  • Or it might have been of the call in which Dafydd told me that he’d have me arrested and imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre if I didn’t drop my complaint. Or it could have been the one in which Dafydd boasted about killing patients. Or the one in which Patient F blew a raspberry at him which was interpreted by Liverpool High Court as me presenting a danger to Dafydd’s life. Or a recording of the bugged Student Health Centre with Gwynne propositioning me? Or D.G.E. Wood threatening me? Who knows…

I noted in my post ‘And Death Shall Have No Dominion’ how many people from privileged backgrounds who did the most appalling things as civilians, including those up to their necks in Dafydd’s wrongdoing who lied and cheated at every turn, all managed to distinguish themselves during their war service.

...he joined the Admiralty, one of the five organisations to be merged into a combined MoD in 1964. After a succession of posts there, many of them in ministers’ private offices and many playing a key role in integrating the three branches of the armed forces, Nairne became deputy under-secretary (1970-73).

Nairne will not only have known about the VIP paedophile ring at Kincora and its links with the mainland, but he knew that the Belfast-based paedophile psychiatrist Dr Morris Fraser who was involved with Kincora was allowed to continue to practising by the GMC in the early 1970s after he had offended against children and then relocated to London, where he worked at Springfield Hospital (the mental health unit attached to St George’s) and UCL. See previous posts. Later in life Fraser moved to Cornwall and became involved with a charidee that provided sailing holidays for children.

All Aboard Sir Lancelot! Anyone for a Party Ring?

…he ended his Whitehall career in 1981 at the DHSS. In what he said was a great surprise, he was asked if his name could go on a shortlist as master of St Catherine’s College, Oxford, to succeed the historian Lord Alan Bullock. It was unusual then, though not now, for Oxbridge colleges to elect “outsiders” – even former Whitehall mandarins – as heads.

Alan Bullock was a senior member of the security services. He established St Catherine’s after many enjoyable years at New College, Oxford, where, along with Richard Crossman, he recruited for the intelligence services. Mandelson is a St Catherine’s graduate and was mist likely recruited to work for the intelligence services by Alan Bullock. Bullock and Mandy have numerous links with those we know and love. See post ‘A Study In Tyranny’.

Nairne was master of St Catherine’s for seven years. Soon after he took up the post, he was made a privy counsellor and appointed a member of the Franks committee, set up to review the events leading up to the Argentinian invasion of the Falklands in 1982. While the committee described a catalogue of errors, it was attacked for absolving the Thatcher government from “any criticism or blame” for the junta’s decision “to commit an act of unprovoked aggression”.

Nairne soon joined other recently retired top Whitehall officials in the growing campaign for the repeal of the “catch-all” Section 2 of the Official Secrets Act. “Had Sir Humphrey Appleby changed his spots?” he asked, referring to the senior official in Yes, Minister. “Any Freedom of Information bill would have important exemptions; matters affecting national security, such as the organisation of a British nuclear test, would certainly be exempted,” he warned.

As it seems were all matters relating to the Westminster Paedophile Ring, even the murders of witnesses.

He fully recognised that ministers and civil servants were always attacked for their disposition to cover up not only what needed to be kept secret, but what could be politically damaging. “The secrecy culture of Whitehall,” he openly acknowledged, “is essentially a product of British parliamentary democracy; economy with the truth is the essence of a professional reply to a parliamentary answer.”He was under no illusion that there was a long way to go before that culture was fundamentally changed and the doctrine of “the need to know” is replaced by that of “the right to know”.

The citizens of north Wales had no right to know that the social workers who took their kids into care would force them into prostitution. Neither did they have the right to know that the Top Docs to whom they were referred – and by whom they were sectioned if they refused an appointment – were also forcing patients into prostitution.When Oliver Brooke, the Professor of Paediatrics at St George’s, was imprisoned for kiddie porn offences in Dec 1986, St George’s made public statement that people should not be frightened to bring their children to the hospital, Ollie was a one-off and that he had never offended against his patients. Ollie was a key member of a pan-European paedophile ring, many of his colleagues were facilitating the same ring and I’d be gobsmacked if he had managed to leave his patients alone. He became a paediatrician for a reason… See eg. ‘Oliver!’

Nairne enjoyed wrestling with difficult ideas. He was the first chair of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics (1991-96) and in 1993 published ‘Demystifying Bioethics: A Lay Perspective’, in the Journal of Medical Ethics.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones


He was also a gifted painter of watercolours and his pictures were twice exhibited in the Royal Academy. A collection of his watercolours hangs in St Catherine’s College. Sandy, one of his sons and director of the National Portrait Gallery, told the magazine ‘Oxford Today’ in 2010 that Patrick encouraged his children to make room for art. “There’s a line of art that runs through my family. Even though my father spent all his time organising things and making things better, he brought us up with the idea that art had a very strong place.”

Graham Ovenden exceeded Rolf by a long way and was taken much more seriously as an artist as well. See previous posts.

Nairne was also chairman of the Society of Italic Handwriting and his Whitehall memos and minutes were well known for their fine, clear script.

Those memos and minutes which resulted in the concealing of the gang rape and murder of children are examples of the most beautiful handwriting. I’m very fond of illuminated writing myself, it’s most impressive.

He and his wife, Penelope, a lay reader for many years, were part of the church wherever they lived and his Christian beliefs were important to him.

Mandy’s right hand Civil Service mandarin by 2010, the daughter of Ron Evans, the crooked lawyer employed by Gwynedd County Council who kept a lot of people out of prison and tried to put me in, went to school with the family from Birmingham who were targeted by the gang. Mandy, as a member of the security services, should you and your pals not have been blowing them all out of the water when they were teenagers or young adults, instead of bankrupting the bakeries who dared employ the victims of the gang of which their parents were part?

He had artistic interests and skill, as shown by the collection of his watercolours that hangs in St Catz and his chairmanship of the Society of Italic Handwriting. He and his wife, Penelope Chauncy Bridges, created an artistic dynasty: one daughter, Fiona, is a part-time calligrapher

Lambe became First Sea Lord and Chief of the Naval Staff in May 1959. He suffered a serious heart attack only six months after taking office and was promoted to Admiral of the Fleet on his early retirement on 10 May 1960. Lambe died at his home at Newport-on-Tay in Fife on 29 August 1960. Lambe had been appointed Commander-in-Chief, Mediterranean Fleet, as well as NATO Commander, Allied Forces Mediterranean in Nov 1957 and was succeeded in that role by Sir Alec Bingley, who did not have a heart attack and keel over at the height of his powers. But then Sir Alec’s wife and son were friends with Dafydd and Gwynne, Richard Crossman and Dom Mintoff of the Maltese Mafia and ran MIND. See previous posts.

…At the MoD from 1967-1973 Nairne was first Assistant Undersecretary of State for Defence then Deputy Under-Secretary, and worked closely and supportively with the Minister, Lord Carrington.The reason he was so good at this job, as at all his later ones, was his capacity to listen. Whether dealing with a stubborn old admiral, a set-in-his-ways general or a callow schoolboy, he patiently listened with apparent eagerness to hear what you had to say, seldom interrupted and never condescended or patronised. He always seemed genuinely curious about what you thought, and never forget anyone’s name or circumstances.

Inside Sir Patrick’s Cultured Brain it will have been:

He inspired real affection, partly because of his sparkling conversation and interest in your contribution to it, partly because he radiated affability and kindness.
So did Geoffrey Chamberlain and he experimented on live late gestation foetuses whom he had unlawfully aborted, killed them afterwards and ran the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See post ‘Now Then…’

In MoD negotiations he was effective though young; somehow those on the other side always knew they were dealing with someone who had experienced danger and shown bravery and initiative…
Banding the initials MC about after his name might have been part of the spell.

Nairne did not return to the MoD as expected in 1975 but was promoted to head the Department of Health and Social Security. He was knighted that year and made GCB on his retirement in 1981, when he also mused in a radio interview on the conflicts between politicians in a hurry to get things done and the civil servants whose job is to see that projects are brought to fruition thoroughly and properly.

When one looks at the decades of patient, hard skulduggery and law breaking that has gone into providing complete protection for Gwynne, Dafydd and the gang since the late 1950s, one cannot fairly entirely blame most politicians for the co-ordinated effort; they simply haven’t been in office long enough. Whereas Nairne, Lancelot, Sir George Godber and the rest devoted their entire lives to the task, from that first thrashing after the cold bath at the age of seven.

Could Sir Patrick have been the model for Sir Humphrey Appleby in “Yes Minister”? His family will only allow that he “may” have offered “advice” to the BBC. During his tenure he was responsible for the inspired appointment of Mary Warnock as chair of the trailblazing committee of inquiry into human fertilisation and embryology,

Inspired in so far as Warnock knew nothing about IVF, had no idea what the Top Docs were getting up to in their clinics and therefore was unable to come up with recommendations that would nip the fleecing of patients in the bud. However, Dame Josephine Barnes, the ex-wife of Ted Heath’s friend and Top Doc Sir Brian Warren – Sir Brian was wholly opposed to the idea of the NHS throughout his career – was a member of the Warnock committee and Josephine, being an obstetrician and gynaecologist who, like her ex-husband, was facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring, did know what was going on (see post ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’), so she could give orders to Warnock. Warnock was a silly old bat, very Shirley Williams-esque, who had concealed the organised abuse in Oxfordshire that was facilitated by the Top Docs, so Warnock could be relied upon to follow instructions while ‘The Guardian’ could publish articles about her Wise Woman’s ways, a la Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss.

and his continued interest in the subject led to him chairing, in 1991, the Nuffield Council on Biothethics, which reflected on questions raised by the genome project.

As someone with lovely handwriting, a trait genetically inherited by his daughter, Nairne was the ideal person to do so.

It was a tough act to follow Alan Bullock, founding Master of St Catz, as Nairne did in 1981. But this is like no other Oxbridge college. First, it is a masterpiece of Modernist architecture and a congenial environment for someone with so developed a visual sense that he always travelled with his watercolours.
I do hope that Nairne was fully equipped when he saw action and won that Military Cross.
 And it is a particularly civilised college, whose fellows’ interests and origins are varied, as are those of its students.

and its excellence and geniality owes a good deal to him. On retiring, seeking to distance himself and the college from the effort made by some of his dons to grant a fellowship to Mrs Thatcher, and having unsuccessfully campaigned for Edward Heath to become University Chancellor, he chaired the Advisory Board of Modern Art Oxford…

In 1987 he chaired the Institute of Medical Ethics’ working party on the implications for the NHS of Aids….And as he’d been such a success at Oxford, Essex University made him Chancellor (1983-97).

‘Of course ‘The Times’ published an obituary for Nairne as well, but they really pushed the boat out by publishing some additional comments by others after they had published Nairne’s obituary:

John Pattisson, former Vice-Chairman, Radley College Council, writes:May I add to your deservedly warm tribute (obituary, June 5). Sir Patrick was, as you say, knighted in 1975, and he was advanced from KCB to GCB six years later. In 1982 he was appointed to the Privy Council, an exceptional distinction for a civil servant, in anticipation of his becoming the government monitor at the forthcoming key negotiations on the future of Hong Kong. He was selected personally for this important role by Margaret Thatcher, who held Sir Patrick in the greatest respect, reputedly averring that he could be trusted as he was “one of us”.

  • Celebrity arrests could soar after police discover Jimmy ...
  • Dark Secrets of Westminster: Challenging British Elite ...

Among the many bodies to which Sir Patrick gave inspirational service was the governing council of Radley, his old school, of which he was an outstandingly valuable and fondly admired member from 1976 to 1999.

I worked in an old folk’s home in Leicester for a few weeks during 1987-88 and although there was no neglect or abuse of the residents, the home was run and substantially staffed by people who knew about the horrors which existed in Leicester, on the turf of Greville Janner and Keith Vaz and they were just keeping their heads down in terror. I worked with an Asian girl who’s sister had run away from home to escape a forced marriage and this girl was planning to do the same; the Top Docs knew all about it because she had developed an eating disorder and they were fully au fait with her background, but no, they were not going to do anything to help. The lady who used to come to the home to do music and games with the residents was a former NHS occupational therapist who’s son was at Radley and she used to chat to the residents about the children of the rich and famous who were at Radley with her son.

Not surprisingly, soon after his appointment he successfully spearheaded plans to build a much-needed arts centre, which he was able to open in 1979. It remains an innovative and thriving facility, and a fitting reminder of Sir Patrick’s love of the school.

Perhaps the lady with whom I worked on Greville’s manor knew Sir Patrick!

David Young writes: Other contributors are spot on in recalling Pat’s astonishing appetite for work. As a young civil servant I worked directly under him on nuclear defence matters and specifically on briefing for Nato Nuclear Planning Group meetings. These meetings churned out vast quantities of paper and I fear I skimmed some of them until it became painfully clear that Pat had somehow found time to read every word. That he might have been a model for Sir Humphrey is perhaps supported by the fact that I once heard him say to Denis Healey, “I could not fail to disagree with you less, Secretary of State”. I am still not sure what it meant.

One of the people who supplied an obit for Sir Patrick was one Frank Panton. I will try to find out whether he is anything to do with Wing Commander I.H. Panton. Wing Commander I.H. Panton used to supervise a summer work scheme at Penrhyn Castle in the 1980s and every person employed was a victim of Dafydd’s gang. They liked Wing Commander Panton because he rolled his sleeves up and worked with them, took his lunch breaks with them etc. He heard the full details of the very serious crimes that they had experienced and witnessed. He said nothing about it to anyone. See previous posts. Lucille Hughes volunteers for the National Trust at Penrhyn Castle.

Nairne: he was the very model of the best kind of British civil servant, with a genius for administration
Nairne: he was the very model of the best kind of British civil servant, with a genius for administration. Gwynne the lobotomist was praised after his death for being a ‘thoughtful administrator’. He and Dafydd ran a sex abuse gang, abducted and illegally imprisoned victims in a dungeon and some of them were never seen again. Where does one learn the skills necessary to administrate that? Among the dreaming spires?
The ‘Journal of Medical Ethics’ didn’t miss Nairne’s death. Here’s a small extract:

Sir Patrick Nairne, who has died aged 91 years, was a distinguished senior civil servant and academic, who among many other accomplishments and achievements, made a significant contribution to the development of medical ethics in the UK. 

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones


Sir Patrick is perhaps best known in this context as the founding chairman, from 1991 to 1996, of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, the independent ethics advisory body co-funded by the Nuffield Foundation, the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council, which is deservedly regarded as the closest British equivalent to a national ethics committee.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones


Two or three years prior to the creation of the Nuffield Council however, Sir Patrick had chaired an Institute of Medical Ethics working party on the ethical implications of HIV infection and AIDS, one of a series of enquiries …

On 5 June 2013, the University of Essex website carried this feature:

Obituary: Sir Patrick Nairne

Sir Patrick Nairn

It is with great sadness that the University announces the death of former Chancellor, Sir Patrick Nairne on 4 June 2013. The University’s second Chancellor, Sir Patrick held the post for thirteen years from 1983 to 1997. He was also presented with an Honorary Doctorate by the University in 1983.

Warm tributes have been paid to Sir Patrick by those who knew him and worked alongside him. Professor Sir Martin Harris, Vice-Chancellor from 1987 to 1992, praised Sir Patrick for his “wise counsel”, while Professor Ron Johnston, Vice-Chancellor from 1992 to 1995, highlighted his “experience and wisdom”.

Tributes to Sir Patrick can be read in full below.

Born on 5 August 1921, Sir Patrick was educated at Radley College and University College, Oxford, with his education interrupted by World War II. During his career Sir Patrick held key positions in the Ministry of Defence and the Cabinet Office and was appointed Permanent Secretary to the Department of Health and Social Security. He was knighted in 1975.

In 1981 he was elected Master of St Catherine’s College, Oxford, stepping down in 1988, and held a number of public offices, including government monitor for Hong Kong in 1984 and founding chair of the Nuffield Council on bioethics from 1992. He was also a trustee of the National Maritime Museum. He was appointed Chancellor at Essex following the death of founding Chancellor Lord Butler. That is Rab Butler, Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, mentor to Carlo, who concealed the ring at Cambridge.

Tributes to Sir Patrick Nairne

Professor Sir Martin Harris, Vice-Chancellor 1987-1992: ‘Barbara and I were deeply saddened to learn of Patrick Nairne’s death. When we arrived at Wivenhoe Park in 1987, as a very inexperienced Vice-Chancellor I was very much in need of wise counsel. Pat Nairne was one of those to whom I could always turn. Always available but never intrusive, he systematically visited every part of the then very small University, sometimes accompanied by Penny and sometimes alone. They always stayed in the guest room at Lakeside House and it was there, after the busy schedule of the day was done, or on the evening before Degree Day (just three ceremonies, all in one day, at that time), that he gave me such sound advice. He was astonishingly well informed and willing to share so much, not just with me but right across the campus. He was just what a Chancellor should be, and the then young University is very much in his debt. And there’s one other thing: his watercolours. As I write this, I am looking at two delightful paintings which Pat gave us all those years ago and which Barbara and I have treasured, in Colchester, in Manchester and now in Cambridge. These exquisite landscapes are a lasting memory for us of a wonderful mentor and friend.”

Wherever the Westminster Paedophile Ring was, so was Martin Harris. He was born near Wrexham, went to school in Plymouth and university at Queens College, Cambridge and then SOAS. He taught at Leicester University and then spent 15 years at the University of Salford, which was sending social work students on placement to north Wales and ignoring reports of child abuse. Salford also accredited the worthless qualifications handed out to Dafydd’s gang by Cartrefle College. See previous posts.

Harris was a member of UGC, 1984-87, when Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer and the UGC retreated from their plan to close down UCNW, when a deal was done to shaft the recent UCNW grads who had tripped over the Westminster Paedophile Ring…

Harris was VC of Essex University, 1987-92. During that time, UCNW returned Professor Andrew Radford to Essex University, where Radford had previously worked, after much scandal and complaint at Bangor re Radford. Radford was a serial shagger of students; I didn’t ever hear that it was non-consensual, but the students receiving Firsts could be correlated with those who had sex with Radford. The Ugandan discussions created such a bad atmosphere in the Dept of Linguistics, over which Radford presided, that there was a complaint from at least one parent; it was concealed by the Student Health Centre at UCNW and by Dr Tony Francis. Radford was so excessive that Essex could not have not noticed his extra-curricular activities. Radford had completed his first degree, postgrad and postdoc work at Trinity College, Cambridge. He had been a student when Carlo was there and when Rab was Master of Trinity College. See previous posts for further info re Radford.

Martin Harris was VC of the Victoria University of Manchester, 1992-2004, when it became part of the new University of Manchester. Dafydd’s and Tony Francis’s colleagues, including Bob Hobson, were based at Manchester running the ring there at the time. During his time at Manchester, Martin Harris was Chairman of both the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals (now UUK) and of its Health Committee and a member of the Commission for Health Improvement, who told all those lies about the NW Wales NHS Trust in 2004 and was part of the huge scam involving Jack Butterworth’s daughter to conceal patient harm and criminality while firing at Merfyn Jones and his wife. See post ‘Murder In Samarkand’.

Martin Harris was Chair of the Clinical Academic Staff Advisory Group of the Universities and Colleges Employers Association. So perhaps he can explain why so many of the Clinical Academics at Bangor University were colluding against Merfyn, why they were leaking confidential information re his wife when she was dying and why they flatly refused to treat me for a serious condition.

Martin Harris served as Chancellor of Salford University, 2005-09, succeeding Sir Walter Bodmer, who was part of the huge Bristol cancer research fraud scandal involving Dr Peter Macguire, a friend of Tony Francis, which resulted in the suicide – well it was presumed to be suicide – of Prof Tim McElwain in 1990. See posts ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’. Does Martin know how Mcguire, a psychiatrist, received funding from the Cancer Research Campaign, just after I had begun a career with the CRC?

Martin Harris’ other appointments include Deputy Chairmanship of the North West Development Agency, 2002-08 and Director of Fair Access at the OFFA, 2004-12.

Professor Les Ebdon, the former VC of Bedford University, succeeded Martin Harris as Director of OFFA. I corresponded with Les before he was appointed Director of OFFA. Les had written an article about mental health problems in students in the lay press and I explained to him that Brown and I had just written an academic article in this area. Les read my article and wrote a nice letter back telling me that he wouldn’t share it with anyone until it was published (it was still in press). Les was as good as his word, he didn’t plagiarise it. What Les did do however was let a few people know that I had contacted him, that I was, well me, that woman who had been given a PhD place at Bangor, the reason why Miranda was trying to destroy the VC of Bangor University. Les was then given the OFFA job. Before Les stepped down as the VC of Luton, then known as the University of Bedfordshire, he gave Jimmy Savile an honorary doctorate.

Jimmy Savile Stripped Of University Of Bedfordshire ...

Savile’s honorary doctorate was rescinded by the University of Bedfordshire, after the er Savile revelations, by which time Les was Director of OFFA.

Les: Thank you for not plagiarising my article, but the use to which you did put it is not a very good advert for you and your much boasted about commitment to supporting disadvantaged students is it? Would you like to apologise to the VC who really was supporting disadvantaged students and who had his career destroyed because he did so? 

  • Les Ebdon is a chemist who did both of his degrees at Imperial College. Imperial was/is crawling with folk who are Of Dafydd, in particular Lord Brian Flowers, who came from Swansea. See previous posts. Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies also worked at Imperial; when I sent that article to Les, Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies was one of the members of Bangor University Council who were mounting the Great Rebellion against Merfyn.

Les: If you develop a brain tumour, I’ll let you know that they cannot be relied upon to save your bacon, no matter how much you’ve grovelled to them. Because they don’t have an ounce of decency in them. They are, after all, gangsters, Les you big wally.

After Les took up the post at OFFA, he was succeeded as VC of the University of Bedfordshire by Bill Rammell. I corresponded with Bill Rammell as well, just after I corresponded with Les! Bill was Miranda’s Minister for HE, but Bill didn’t know anything about HE. So Bill’s policies weren’t working and he was told this by educational sociologists of far greater standing than me, a PhD student. Bill wrote back to me and told me that I would soon see that Miranda’s HE policies were working and had Transformed People’s Chances.

Miranda’s HE guru Lord Adonis admitted recently that Miranda’s HE policies hadn’t worked as expected and to save the HE sector, it is now necessary to stop implementing them.

I expect that Bill at Bedfordshire will continue to follow them nonetheless. All the best with that one Bill!

  • Martin Harris became President of Clare Hall, Cambridge in 2008 and stepped down in 2013.

Professor Ron Johnston, Vice-Chancellor, 1992-95: ‘Patrick Nairne was everything a University and its Vice-Chancellor could ask for in a Chancellor. He was a staunch supporter and friend: his experience and wisdom were there to be tapped, with advice that was never pressed but always available when asked for – and always given without any follow-up questioning to know if it was taken. He was intensely interested in all that happened at the University. The formal occasions were handled with quiet grace, good humour and the minimum of pomp. He made frequent trips to Wivenhoe in order to visit departments and learn what they were doing – and once gave a seminar in the Department of Government, joining members of staff at the traditional meal at David McKay’s restaurant afterwards. Lady Nairne too was a regular visitor, often attending seminars and other events at the Multi-Faith Chaplaincy Centre.’

Sir Patrick and Lady Nairne bred and they produced Cultured Children.

Patrick Nairne’s son Alexander Robert “Sandy” Nairne (born 8 June 1953) is an English historian and curator. From 2002 until February 2015 he was the Director of the National Portrait Gallery, London.

Sandy Nairne attended Radley College and studied at University College, Oxford in the early 1970s and rowed for the Oxford University second crew Isis.

‘ISIS is known for spreading hatred and executing victims on camera and instigating terrorist attacks.’

'Real Housewives of Isis' screens on BBC2 – and it's upset ...

Sandy Nairne came into contact with Nicholas Serota, while working at the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, 1974–76. Nicholas Serota’s mother, the Baroness Bea, was a friend of Richard Crossman, who was Secretary of State at the DHSS, 1968-70. Bea Serota is mentioned a lot in Crossman’s ‘Diaries’, particularly those diary entries from his time at the DHSS because Bea was Crossman’s Deputy. Bea Serota, an LSE graduate of the generation when so many staff and graduates of that institution played a major role in the Westminster Paedophile Ring, was a civil servant who was one of those powerful posh ladies holding influential positions while Dafydd and Gwynne expanded their business, as the Westminster Paedophile Ring colonised most of the UK’s Depts of Social Services; Bea was one of those who helped it happen. Bea’s talent was spotted by Harold Wilson, when she worked as a civil servant. Wilson gave her a peerage in 1967, appointed her a Gov’t Whip and then as Richard Crossman’s Deputy at the DHSS, although she hadn’t ever been an MP.

Bea’s previous counted for rather more than being an MP. She was a member of the old Hampstead Borough Council immediately after WW II, then sat on the London County Council as a member for Brixton and on the GLC as the member for Lambeth. Until the end of her life Bea was devoted to Hampstead. Just like Peggy Jay, another dreadful old bag who was devoted to Hampstead (see post ‘And Death Shall Have No Dominion’), Bea knew about the trade in underaged sex workers for the Posh, including those fed into the machine of the Bloomsbury Group and in north Wales, the Welsh Bloomsbury Set. Bea was Vice-Chairwoman of ILEA, 1964-67, while it colluded with organised abuse (see previous posts) and it was ‘her distinguished career in local government and the work that she did for children’ that bagged her a peerage.

Thus Bea became ‘a recognised authority’ on child care, Chaired the LCC children’s committee for seven years and was a member of the Central Training Council for Child Care for at least nine years.

Dafydd’s mistress Lucille was working as a children’s social worker at the time.

Lucille Hughes


In addition, Bea Chaired the advisory council on the penal system – Bryn Estyn was an Approved School until 1974 – was the first Ombudsman for local gov’t, was a member of the Community Relations Commission, the BBC Complaints Commission, a BBC Governor and served on the Longford Committee on Crime and on the Latey Committee, which led to the lowering of the age of majority to 18.

In 1985, Bea became a Deputy Speaker in the Lords and then the principal Deputy Chairwoman of Committees. See previous posts for details of Bea and those with whom she worked.

After a period as an Assistant Curator at the Tate Gallery(1976–80) – during which time Sandy also worked on international curation projects such as the Irish biennial EVA International – Sandy Nairne was appointed Director of Exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art, a position he held until 1984. In 1987, Nairne wrote the TV documentary series “State of the Art” for Channel 4.

In 1988, Sandy Nairne was appointed as the Director of the Visual Arts Department at the Arts Council. In this capacity, Nairne oversaw the re-invigoration of the British Art Show, the establishing of the Institute of International Visual Arts (InVA), as a permanent organisation to promote culturally diverse projects, the furtherance of Percent for Art and the creation of the Curating Contemporary Art Course at the Royal College of Art.

Nairne became Director of Programmes for the Tate Gallery under Nicholas Serota. In this capacity, Nairne was responsible for the restructuring of the Tate’s collection administration in preparation for the opening of Tate Modern and the redevelopment of the original Tate Gallery in Millbank as Tate Britain.

Sandy Nairne was responsible for the successful recovery of two late Turner paintings, stolen in Germany in 1994 and put back on display at Tate Britain in early 2003. He negotiated secretly for 8 years on behalf of the Tate to get the two paintings back. 

Nairne became Director of the National Portrait Gallery in London in 2002. On 12 June 2014 he announced his resignation which took effect in early 2015.

Sandy Nairne was awarded a CBE in Lilibet’s 2011 Birthday Honours for services to the arts.

Nairne was among those appointed on 29 January 2015 to the Bank of England’s Banknote Character Advisory Committee, whose first task would be to decide who should appear on the next £20 banknote.

Nairne’s wife is the art historian Lisa Tickner, with whom he has a son, the lighting designer Christopher Nairne, and a daughter, the curator and art historian Eleanor Nairne.

In April 2008, the year in which Merfyn’s wife died at the hands of Dafydd’s colleagues, ‘Country Life’ published an interview with Sandy Nairne, by Jeremy Musson:

Interview: Sandy Nairne

Sandy Nairne’s career in art began at Oxford where he ran the Oxford Students Arts Council.

Sandy Nairne, the director of the National Portrait Gallery (NPG) since 2002, discovered his real interest in contemporary-art curating when an under-graduate at Oxford, but only after a year devoted to rowing (he’s a rowing blue). ‘My first year was dominated by rowing; the second by my running the Oxford Students Arts Council. There were lots of talented people around then in the 1970s, and we used a room over a garage. I had to persuade the owner not to tune up the cars when we were upstairs there was a bit of an issue with carbon-monoxide.’

Two weeks after his finals, he bought a wooden punt. The river still plays a key part in his life and he competes regularly in a racing punt (only 2ft wide and 28ft long). He is a ‘proud member’ of the Dittons Skiff and Punting Club. ‘My son says punt racing is a sport bitterly contested by 17 people, which is very unfair. It goes back to the late 19th century.’

Tall and dark-eyed, Mr Nairne can, in a crowd, seem a commanding, quiet presence, but, in conversation, he has an eager, quick-witted enthusiasm. He grew up near Cobham in Surrey, ‘surrounded by woods to escape to. My father is a gifted amateur watercolourist, and I loved walking with him, sketchbook in hand.’ His father, Sir Patrick Nairne, was a senior civil servant and master of St Catherine’s College, Oxford. After university, Mr Nairne joined Nicholas Serota at the tiny Museum of Modern Art in Oxford. ‘I was assistant director, but there were only four staff. It was a great apprenticeship, and Nick was clearly someone who was going to go places.’

Nick, son of Bea…

He went to the Tate Gallery next, and worked as an assistant keeper with Richard Morphet, ‘a brilliant man. I was surprised to get the job there as I wasn’t an art historian, but I think they needed people with managerial experience’. In 1980, he went on to become director of exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA).With Mr Serota, who was then director of the Whitechapel Art Gallery, he curated a show of 20th-century British sculpture in 1981. Then, having worked at the Arts Council, he joined Mr Serota again at the Tate, in 1994: ‘The great expansion of Tate Modern was about to happen they were very exciting times.’ Mr Nairne revels in the NPG. ‘It was founded in the 19th century, influenced by Thomas Carlyle’s idea that a portrait “was a candle by which a biography for the first time can be properly read”, and, although perhaps not so explicitly, by the Victorian spirit of emulation and self-improvement.’

Not sure that the Serotas and the Nairnes quite embody Thomas Carlyle’s notions. They are more Alex Carlile…

The NPG still commissions five or six special portraits a year of leading national figures current subjects include Sir Peter Mansfield, inventor of the MRI scanner. ‘The trustees decide who the sitters will be, and then delegate to me the choice of artist. Sarah Howgate, our contemporary curator, does much of the hard work.’

How about one of Dafydd? Painted by Graham Ovenden? Graham usually prefers to paint little girls in states of undress, but I’m sure that he could do justice to Dafydd in his baby doll nightie with nae panties…

The photographic collections continue to expand. Indeed, the blockbuster exhibition this year, ‘Vanity Fair Portraits’ (until May 26), is of photographs. Mr Nairne is keen to promote a high standard of research as a way for a national institution to fulfil its public role: ‘We have eight million visitors to our website each year, and they have access to all the results.’

Mr Nairne feels that the NPG is in good form at the moment, and he’s ‘very cheerful’, having just received a substantial gift of £5 million over three years, from US donor Randy Lerner

Is someone taking the piss out of Sandy and the NPG??

(who owns Aston Villa football club) in memory of his father. Half of this is to be devoted to the portrait fund. This is after another major donation from Sir Christopher Ondaatje. And what is the state of British portraiture? ‘Oh, I think it’s in fighting form. The truth is that, although Modernism seemed to turn away from subject pictures, nearly all the major modern-art movements include portraiture in some way. Most contemporary art is about identity, and you have to remember that this is a museum about people first and foremost.’

Indeed. Lord Lloyd Kenyon, umbrella of Dafydd’s and father of Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon who sexually abused boys in care in north Wales, was a Trustee of the NPG,1953-58 and Chairman of the NPG, 1966-88.

Sandy’s wife Lisa Tickner is a British art historian. She taught at Middlesex University, where she is Emeritus Professor, as well as at Northwestern University and the Courtauld Institute of Art, where she is Honorary Professor. In 2008 Lisa was elected a Fellow of the British Academy.

Tickner’s work focuses on the history of modern art in Britain, and on feminist and theoretical approaches to the history of art. In 1979 she was one of the founders of BLOCK magazine. Her first book, The Spectacle of Women, looked at the imagery of the Suffragette movement in Britain, and has been seen as an early model for visual culture studies. Her second book, Modern Life and Modern Subjects, was described on publication as ‘simply the best book yet written by an art historian about British modernism’.

Tickner initially studied Fine Art at the Hornsey School of Art, but was encouraged to pursue art history by Nikolaus Pevsner, a friend of Geoffrey Grigson, John Betjeman and Hugh Casson. All previous stars of this blog. She completed a PhD on the arts and crafts movement in 1970.

In the 1970s Tickner was involved with the Women’s Art History Collective in a way that influenced her scholarship. Her paper “The Body Politic: Female Sexuality and Women Artists Since 1970”, presented at the 1977 AAH conference, was published in the second issue of the newly-formed journal Art History and led to the resignation of one of the members of the journal’s editorial board.

Sandy’s brother Andrew Colin Nairne (born 10 February 1960), is Director of Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge University’s modern and contemporary art gallery. Born in Guildford, Nairne graduated with an art history MA from St Andrew’s University in 1983. He was the Visual Arts Director at the Scottish Arts Council and for eight years he was the Exhibitions Director at the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow. Andrew Nairne also had a position at the Ikon Gallary in Birmingham and was Director of Dundee Contemporary Arts.

Dafydd’s mate, Robert Bluglass, qualified at St Andrews University, worked at Dundee, held a Chair at Birmingham University for many years and now is the proud Director of Compton Verney, in Warwickshire, one of the finest galleries in Europe.

Andrew Nairne is the former Director of Modern Art Oxford, a contemporary art gallery. He joined in 2001, when he renamed the gallery from the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford. Nairne coordinated enhancements to the museum building, and gave MOMA’s substantial library of art books and catalogues to Oxford Brookes University. He shifted the focus to exhibitions of contemporary artists, who have included Tracy Emin and Stella Vine.

Nairne was a Board Member of the Pier Arts Centre in Stromness, Orkney, 1998-2003. Orkney was pretty much run by Jo Grimond and his wife, Laura, who was one of the daughters of Violet Bonham Carter. Violet’s father was the Liberal PM, H.H. Asquith. Jo Grimond was Liberal Leader before Mr Thrope was done for conspiracy to kill and stepped in as Leader again after Mr Thrope was arrested. See post ‘And Death Shall Have No Dominion’.

Andrew Nairne was formerly Chair of the Visual Arts and Galleries Association (VAGA) and also Visiting Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford.

In 2009, Nairne was appointed Executive Director of Arts Strategy at the Arts Council England. Andrew Nairne received an OBE in the 2019 New Years Honours for services to Museums and to the Arts.

It’s all about People.

Crossman and Bea enjoyed trips to Covent Garden:

  • The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London, UK - Stock Image
  • Vilar Floral Hall, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London, England, United Kingdom, Europe - Stock Image

It looks very nice, but the problem is that if I popped in, I’d encounter people like Bea. Or now that she has died, her friends and relatives, such as Sir Nick, who is now Chairman of Arts Council England:

It must have been a great help to People in their pursuit of Culture that Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson, President/Chairman of MIND and Crossman’s predecessor as Minister of Health, served as Chairman of the Arts Council of Great Britain, 1974-82. He was succeeded by Mystic Mogg, another from Crossman’s era, 1982-89 and thus it continues. Previous posts have supplied details of Arts Council bigwigs and in England and Wales they are all closely linked to those we know and love. If we go backwards in time from Sir Kenneth, there was Lord Patrick Gibson – a publisher involved with the National Trust – and Lord Arnold Goodman, Harold Wilson’s solicitor and friend who was a crook. Goodman was Chairman of the Arts Council of GB, 1965-72 and really splashed the dosh about when he built the South Bank Centre. Goodman was Director of the Royal Opera House and Sadler’s Wells, Governor of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, President of the Theatrical Advisory Committee and was a Senior Fellow of the Royal College of Art.

It really was true that Harold Wilson gave money to his friends; and Harold’s friend Richard Crossman was running a sex abuse ring…

While People were paid a great deal of money to direct and hold art exhibitions about Wimmin’s Power and Sexuality, other people with a small p had their faces ground into the dust.

Patient F, in the 1970s, was a promising artist. That was before the gang wrecked his life. He was still an enthusiastic painter afterwards though and he always maintained that he hated the ‘art world’, that I had no idea how sordid it all was and that it was based on ‘cocaine, champagne and young men selling their bottoms to the likes of David Hockney and Francis Bacon’. I heard much about a lot of famous artists. See previous posts. By the time that F was chatting to me about it all, the Hergest Unit simply dismissed his anecdotes as the ravings of a madman, because as I have explained previously, once someone had been dehumanised by the gang, after three years or so they were rendered invisible and the new cohorts of junior staff knew nothing about them. But people like Dafydd and Tony Francis did know their earlier biographies, or at least those bits that had caused the gang to come after them in the first place. Furthermore the security services were bugging my house when F used to chat away about his adventures in the 1960s and 70s on the hippy and rock scene and then at art college and afterwards.

Anyone for giving Bea Serota’s and Sir Patrick Nairne’s children senior jobs in the arts during the Waterhouse Inquiry? Because there was a man sitting in a house near Bethesda telling a woman who had worked with the Top Docs who facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring a great many interesting things. Furthermore, a variety of other Empowered Service Users regularly dropped in for coffee and they all took trips down memory lane together.

During the years that I was unwittingly being targeted by the security services, a young woman sat next to me on a long train journey. We had a great natter and she was ever so interesting; she was an art student who was one of the muses of Robert Lenkiewicz, who at the time was based in Plymouth. Lenkiewicz had caused a sensation by his mural depicting the pompous of Plymouth engaged in an orgy. Then he caused more trouble by embalming the body of his friend, a tramp called Diogenes who lived in a barrel, after Diogenes died, but refused to tell anyone where Diogenes was. He did it all with Diogenes’ permission, it was Diogenes’ last wish, but you know what people are like…

Brown and I had been spotted in various art galleries and the gang were on our trail once more. Obviously I hadn’t been sufficiently tempted by Gwynne and Dafydd’s offers, so now the art crowd could have a go.

I meet loads of interesting people when I am out and about and another interesting girl sat next to me on a train in 1987. She had qualified as a clinical psychologist at UCNW, had done a placement at Denbigh and had been hassled by Dafydd. She knew exactly what was going on in north Wales and told me ‘it is so terrible, everyone just gets away from there as soon as they can’. She was working as a clin psy at Great Ormond Street Hospital. A reference from Dafydd and his gang had bagged her a job there. Jimmy Savile popped in regularly. Audrey Callaghan was Chair of Governors for Great Ormond Street for years and then became the lead fundraiser, assisted by her husband who was PM. Richard Crossman was friends with them.

Everybody associated with health and social care knew what was going on, everyone. Not one person’s conscience was pricked throughout the years of investigations and inquiries…

And Death Shall Have No Dominion

My post ‘He Got On His Bike and Looked For Work’ named a few of the alumni from Oundle, the school attended by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, the Anglo-Welsh landowner in Llanfrothen/Croesor and friend of Bertrand Russell, who was the magnet for the Welsh Bloomsbury Group so ably served by Dafydd and Gwynne during the middle years of the 20th century. See eg. ‘The Village’, ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’. I need to flag something up, something that I didn’t realise the important of when I wrote that post.
Two other old boys of Oundle were Sir Kenneth Robinson and the 7th Baron Newborough. Robinson was of course Dafydd’s mate, the Health Minister in Harold Wilson’s Gov’t who was also a big player in MIND, a member of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and who was one of those directly responsible for letting Dafydd and Gwynne do whatever they wanted no matter how unlawful or dangerous. See previous posts. Robinson was much younger than Clough, but it will have been the alumni network wot did it. The 7th Baron Newborough was six years younger than Robinson, but Lord Newborough owned vast tracts of north Wales, including areas dominated by the gang. The old boys of Oundle will all have been working together, as will be their descendants, because as we know, the crime was so serious and there are reputations at stake, so death shall have no dominion…
Born the eldest son of Sir Robert Vaughan Wynn, 6th Baron Newborough and Ruby Irene Severne, Robert Charles Michael Vaughan Wynn, 7th Baron Newborough, (24 April 1917 -11 October 1998), was known as Micky Wynn.

In 1935 Wynn was commissioned into the 9th Lancers, then joined the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards and the 16/5th Lancers. He was invalided out of the British Army in 1940.

Legend has it that in May 1940, as a civilian, Micky Wynn was given command of a yacht acting as the Air Sea Rescue boat for the Naval air station at Lee-on-Solent. While British forces were being evacuated from northern France, Wynn sailed to Dunkirk and made five successful trips before being hit by shellfire, but just made it to Ramsgate. Wynn then took command of a Norfolk fishing boat and went to beaches south of Calais where it was thought the Guards were hiding in the sand dunes. Wearing naval uniform in case he was taken for a spy, Wynn searched for, but never found, the Guards. The Royal Navy, recognising his abilities, gave him a commission in the RNVR in July 1941.

Thus Micky Wynn joined the Gwynne the lobotomists, the Professor Geoffrey Chamberlains, the Sir Alec Bingleys and the rest of them in the Royal Navy/RNVR, forever committed to keeping the secrets of Lord Louis Mountbatten, the gay spies in the Admiralty etc. See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’.

Stationed at HMS Hornet, a Coastal Forces shore base in Gosport, Micky Wynn was involved with a plan to attack the German battleships  Scharnhorst and Gneisenau. There seems to have been a great many lies told with regard to the circumstances of the sinking of the Scharnhorst, it was all a bit like the sinking of the Belgrano. A great many lives were lost but of the people who did survive, some dined out on the stories of their heroics and did very well for themselves, one such person being Lord Richard ‘John’ Moran, a British diplomat who caused problems by being very undiplomatic.

No-one was allowed to say anything rude about Lord Moran or give him the sack no matter how disastrous he was because he was the son of another legend, Charles McMoran Wilson, 1st Baron Moran aka Corkscrew Charlie. Corkscrew Charlie was Winston Churchill’s personal physician from 1940 until Churchill died in 1965 and it was Charlie who was the source of the allegations that Churchill had a mood disorder. Others have suggested that Charlie was not honest when recounting Churchill’s medical history and was out for personal gain. Corkscrew Charlie was THE Top Doc who conducted the negotiations with Nye Bevan re Top Docs pay and conditions in order to gain the agreement of the BMA members to support and work in the NHS. Other Top Docs as greedy and dishonest as Charlie were involved as well, but it was Charlie who in person clinched the deal and squeezed a great deal of dosh out of the Gov’t for the Top Docs, hence his nickname. For info re Lord John Moran and Charlie Corkscrew, see post ‘The History, Boys…’


The plan re Micky Wynn and the sinking of the battleships involved a modified motor torpedo boat, the MTB 74, which was specially built to house torpedo tubes on its foredeck instead of midships. The mission was to fire the torpedoes over the anti-submarine net in Brest harbour where they would sink to the sea-bed and explode after a time delay. The weapons were nicknamed ‘Wynns weapons’. The MTB entered service in December 1941. However while this experiment was being trialled, the ships made the escape from Brest to the Baltic, the “Channel Dash”. Left without a mission, MTB 74 was instead re-tasked to the St. Nazaire raid in Normandy.

On 28 March 1942, Wynn was to play a decisive part in the raid on St Nazaire, the only port on the Atlantic seaboard in which the newly completed German battleship Tirpitz could be docked. The plan, Operation Chariot, entailed the destroyer HMS Campbeltown ramming the gates of St. Nazaire harbour. The ship was to also carry commandos who were tasked with destroying shore-based installations. The charges in Campbeltown would later explode and hopefully destroy the dock caisson. If this was not successful, MTB 74, commanded Micky Wynn, was to be armed with two delayed-action torpedoes to be fired at the dock caisson. Also deployed to the raid were two destroyers, a motor gun and 16 motor launches.

The Chariot force sailed from Falmouth with MTB 74 towed by Campbeltown. The ships were three miles up the Loire estuary before the Germans opened fire, a battle commenced, descriptions of which would go down well in Boys Own War Picture Library. Campbeltown cut through the torpedo net and rammed the dock gates. Micky Wynn had been successful.

Wynn was ordered to return to England. On the way back he picked up two men who were in danger of drowning on the way and came under German fire, which led to another sequence of events in which Wynn triumphed over adversity, while all around him Gerries and cowards did their best to hinder him. Wynn was taken a POW and ended up in the Marlag Nord POW camp near Bremen. After escaping he was sent to Colditz in January 1943 and was repatriated on medical grounds after feigning illness in January 1945. Hearing that one of the plucky Brits who had saved his life earlier was being held in a German naval camp, Micky Wynn volunteered to join the relieving force and met up with him again.

Subsequently it was Victoria Crosses all round for Micky Wynn and his mates.

While researching for this blog, I have been struck by how many people who spent their time participating in serious crime, lying, cheating and deceiving to ensure that a gang of sex offenders could molest whomever they felt like, did the most heroic things during their war service. After the war, these people showed themselves to be of the most appalling character who were incapable of telling the truth. Why should they have behaved any better during the war? Discussions with people who fought in WW II reveal that some people were considered to have done very brave things; there are also allegations that some people hailed as heroes were complete gits and that history was rewritten.

At that time, the hierarchy in the forces was based on class. Posh people did not join the other ranks, no matter how hopeless they were. Posh people will not all have been hopeless in war by definition, but neither will they all have had the fantastic abilities and war records attributed to them. People of my generation grew up around the old soldiers who fought in WW II and I remember very clearly all the signs of what I now know was class bias. Furthermore the qualities needed as an officer were often very different to the qualities needed in the other ranks. I’m not sure what the prevailing situation is now, but it did used to be the case that the officers usually took the credit no matter how badly they had cocked up. It was probably the parallel of ah the doctors they were wonderful ie. we can’t admit to any other situation…

Some of the most brilliant servicemen just happened to be members of the Royal Family:

  • Because they were members of the Royal Family, toadying being what it is, a great many other people could be relied upon to help them out of difficult situations, as described in previous posts.

The above Guilty Men (see previous posts for their biographies) all knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring as well as Dafydd and the gang and they were all among those who were still concealing it when I and my friends came under attack. They knew that witnesses were fitted up and imprisoned as well as killed…

They’re all dead themselves but where reputations of War Heroes and Giants are concerned, Death Shall Have No Dominion.

Sir Alec Bingley served in WW II on the staff of the Commander-in-Chief, Home Fleet. After the WW II Bingley was appointed Deputy Director of Air Warfare. He went on to be Chief of Staff to the Flag Officer (Air) and then Commander of the aircraft-carrier HMS Eagle in 1952. Bingley was appointed Fifth Sea Lord and Deputy Chief of Naval Staff (Air) in 1954 and Flag Officer, Aircraft Carriers in 1958. He was made Commander-in-Chief, Mediterranean Fleet and NATO Commander, Allied Forces Mediterranean in 1959 and then Commander-in-Chief, Portsmouth and Allied Commander-in-Chief, Channel in 1961.

Sir Alec’s wife Lady Juliet was a personal friend of Dom Mintoff, PM of Malta, 1955-58 and 1971-84. Mintoff was a member of the Maltese Mafia, so there are interesting questions to be asked about Lady Juliet’s activities in Malta which included the organising of the building of a hospital and the provision of other welfare services. I was told a few months ago that Malta is a centre for organised crime and has been for a long time.

It wasn’t only the wives of NATO commanders who were mates with Dom. Harold Wilson’s Secretary of State for the DHSS, Richard Crossman was his friend and so too was Jack Jones, the General Secretary of TGWU. See post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’. Crossman was a member of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, Lady Juliet was a friend of Dafydd’s and facilitated the ring and Jack Jones and his other union baron mates used their knowledge of the ring to gain power for themselves.

There was so much dishonesty on the part of this lot, whoever could know the truth behind the war records of the heroes of yesteryear?

I have turned into the barrister played by Richard Burton in the film ‘The Medusa Touch’ in which he causes ructions in the Court when he goes into his anti-war rant and makes reference to granddad’s medals rusting away in the cabinet and gets himself and his client into a great deal of trouble.

The Medusa Touch - Richard Burtons Court Scene - YouTube

I wasn’t even responsible for a rant as good as Richard Burton’s, I just refused to shag two appalling old men and laughed in Court at a social worker who was a member of a trafficking gang when she forgot her own name in the witness box and then started crying.


After WW II, Micky Wynn returned to farming and in 1963 became High Sheriff of Merionethshire. The land of Clough and the Welsh Bloomsbury Group was in Merionethshire. Eric Hobsbawm’s autobiography refers to Cwm Croesor as ‘Clough’s Kingdom’. It could have been ironic but I’ not entirely sure.

Moving to a Smaller House Means Shedding Books: Should I ...


Lord Maelor the Labour MP for the constituency which included Croesor, 1951-66, off duty, wearing ladies clothes. Lord Maelor died when he spontaneously combusted in Nov 1984. Lord Maelor’s brother, James Jones, was the Labour PM for Wrexham, 1955-70. See previous posts.


Eric Hobsbawm worked for MI5, had a second homer at Croesor and a daughter who’s close friend is married to Gordon Brown:

In 1965 Micky Wynn succeeded his father as Lord Newborough and inherited 20,000 acres in north Wales. The family estates included the Rhug estate in Denbighshire and the Glynllifon estate in the Caernarfon area. Lord Snowdon’s family seat was near Caernarfon and Ma’am Darling and Lord Snowdon used to visit. Before he married Ma’am Darling and became the Lord of Snowdon, Lord Snowdon was Tony Armstrong-Jones, the son of barrister Ronald Armstrong-Jones (1899–1966) and his first wife Anne Messel, later Countess of Rosse (1902–1992). Tony Armstrong-Jones’s paternal grandfather was Sir Robert Armstrong-Jones, a Welsh psychiatrist and physician. Tony’s paternal grandmother, Margaret Armstrong-Jones (née Roberts), was the daughter of Sir Owen Roberts, Welsh educationalist and hero of the gwerin. See previous posts.

Lord Snowdon, being descended from good gwerin stock, was born at Eaton Terrace, Belgravia. Lord Snowdon’s barrister father was a member of Inner Temple, along with Mr Jeremy Thrope and the Havers’ clan, Sir Cecil and Lord Michael Havers and Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, all of whom protected and concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts.

Micky Wynn’s Glynllifon estate encompassed the village of Llandwrog. Llandwrog is a village that was built to house the workers of the Glynllifon estate; it is a pretty village with matching cottages and looks more like a village one would find in an affluent part of England. The cottages were sold off and Llandwrog has become very desirable among the gwerin; it is a hot spot for the oppressed, including the S4C crowd and of course impoverished Angels who are being forced into the embrace of foodbanks. I lived in Llandwrog for a while and after a few weeks was subjected to much harassment with was topped off by a wrongful arrest. I was told that the prime suspect was a deeply unpleasant Angel who lived near me, but I later discovered that John Sims, a senior Angel in the Drug and Alcohol Team ie. Dafydd’s domain, lived in the village as well.

SAIN recording studio, the business established by Dafydd’s fan Dafydd Iwan, is just down the road from Llandwrog.

Yma O Hyd!

In 1976 Micky Wynn was summoned before the magistrates for allegedly firing a 9 lb cannonball across the Menai Strait. The shot went through the sail of a passing yacht and he was charged with causing criminal damage. Wynn denied the charge, protesting that it must have been someone else. He was found guilty and fined. Wynn died in Istanbul in 1998, during the Waterhouse Inquiry and his ashes were shot out of an 18th-century cannon. He was survived by his second wife, Jennifer Acland (née Allen, married 1971), and his son and two daughters from his first marriage to Rosamund Lavington Barbour (married 1945). Micky Wynn’s son, Robert Vaughan Wynn, born 1949, succeeded him as the 8th Baron Newborough.

The naturalist Sir Peter Scott was Micky Wynn’s contemporary at Oundle. See post ‘He Got On His Bike and Looked For Work’. Peter Scott served in the RNVR during WW II:

Steam Gun Boat MGB S309, under the command of  Lieutenant Commander Peter Scott, underway at sea

Peter Scott was the founder of the World Wildlife Fund, who’s President, 1981-96, was Phil the Greek. There was much controversy at the time because of Phil’s penchant for blasting the world’s wildlife to death by shotgun.
Sir Peter Scott served as Chancellor of Birmingham University, 1973-83. It was during those years that Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass found himself going from strength to strength at Birmingham University. The VC of Birmingham University, 1968-81, was Top Doc, Lord Robert Hunter. Hunter had been Field Marshal Montgomery’s personal physician and had spent much of his career at St Andrews and Dundee Universities, when one Robert Bluglass was a medical student and then a junior doctor at St Andrews and Dundee Universities. Wherever Montgomery’s former personal physician was, there was the whippersnapper Bluglass! Lord Hunter was involved in the raid on St Nazaire which made Micky Wynn a hero.
Montgomery spoke out against the legalisation of homosexuality in the UK, arguing that the Sexual Offences Act 1967 was a “charter for buggery” and that “this sort of thing may be tolerated by the French, but we’re British – thank God”. Monty will have been relieved to know that buggery was so unacceptable to Welsh Nonconformists that after the Buggers’ Charter was on the statute books – thanks substantially to Leo Abse, a close friend of leading Welsh Nonconformist George Thomas – Gwynne and Dafydd continued to torture gay men in consenting relationships in the name of aversion therapy at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. While they ran a paedophile ring which provided young boys for George Thomas, Leo Abse and their friends and many other people as well. Dafydd and Gwynne were offered full protection in the face of numerous complaints by Monty’s personal physician and his sidekick Bluglass.

A comment following my post ‘Theatre Of The Absurd’ explained that those we know and love became particularly over-excited with regard to me complaining about Dafydd and Gwynne because they thought that as a child, I had some sort of link to a posh paedophile ring involving Lord Denning and Jeremy Thorpe et al, having lived near Lord Denning and played with his dog when I was little and then spent my teenage years near Jeremy Thorpe country.
Monty lived in Hampshire on Lord Denning’s turf as well, dear oh dear the gang and Thatch’s Gov’t must have been in overdrive.
Lord Robert Hunter was VC of Birmingham University when a member of staff died from smallpox, as a result of dreadful practices on the part of the world leading virologists there, although a rigged inquiry at Gov’t level cleared Birmingham University, as described in a previous post. When I wrote that post, I presumed that the inquiry had to be rigged because no-one would dare admit that the Top Docs playing with smallpox in the middle of Birmingham were doing things that they should not have been, but I wonder if it was also because Montgomery’s mate and a facilitator of the Westminster Paedophile Ring was the VC and had crap all over him?
Readers will be reassured to know that among his other appointments, Lord Hunter was a member of the DHSS Independent Scientific Committee on Smoking and Health, 1973-80. Just to demonstrate how safe our lives are In Their Hands, previously, following the revelations in 1962 of the thalidomide disaster, Hunter had been appointed to the Committee on the Safety of Drugs and was Chairman of the Clinical Trials Sub-Committee. See previous posts for details of the thalidomide disaster, how people were knowingly put at risk and how some of those responsible were then appointed to Gov’t bodies concerned with health and safety and the regulation of medicines. The thalidomiders were fleeced after the efforts of ‘campaigning journalist’ Marjorie Wallace, who was married to a one of the Top Docs running the Westminster Paedophile Ring; the wholly inadequate financial settlement was a result of a rigged process involving the same politicians and lawyers who cheated the Aberfan victims and concealed Dafydd and Gwynne’s crimes… See previous posts.
In later life, Marjorie became a mental health campaigner and used her campaigning to protect Dafydd and the gang; she also became the mistress of Lord Snowdon. See post ‘One Dangerous Fucker’.
Lord Robert Hunter gets a mention in Richard Crossman’s ‘Diaries’. When Westminster Swinger Crossman was Secretary of State in the DHSS, he had lunch with Hunter and Sir George Godber, the Chief Medical Officer, another man who provided Dafydd and Gwynne with armour plating (see previous posts). Crossman mentioned in his diary that he met Hunter and Godber to discuss his ‘new ideas for hospitals’, but Crossman didn’t detail what those ideas were. He did however explain that they went to the Red Lion, that the food and wine were excellent and that the waitresses were nice.
Sir George Godber was one of the civil servants who in the 1940s was involved with the negotiations re the establishment of the NHS, along with Corkscrew Charlie and Lord Charles Hill, the Top Doc who for years was Secretary of the BMA. See previous posts. Godber was a complete shite who spent his entire life protecting a murderous gang of sex offenders and Lord Charles Hill was a greedy selfish git who led the organisation which opposed the creation of the NHS and only agreed to co-operate if they were given a great deal of money. Charles Hill’s friends and colleagues were running the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Harold Wilson only appointed Hill as Chairman of the BBC to ensure that the BBC was in no danger of broadcasting anything that would upset the Top Docs or lead to the exposing of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Hill also provided added protection to the paedophile ring at the BBC which had links with the Westminster ring. See previous posts.
Thus Godber and Hill have been written into history as saints who Did it For The Poor, in much the same way that Lloyd George gained a great deal of excellent PR as a result of the Old Age Pensions, which completely eclipsed some very worrying things that he and his circle were involved with.
Lord Robert Hunter died of a heart attack in his garden in Birmingham in March 1994. So he was out of the way before Matt Arnold, the Headmaster of Bryn Estyn, died from an ‘unspecified blood disease’ in June 1994, four days before the trial opened of his long time friend and Bryn Estyn colleague Peter Howarth, for the sexual abuse of boys in care in north Wales. See eg. post ‘The Banality Of Evil’.
Sir Peter Scott was a student at Trinity College, Cambridge, where his room mate was John Berry. John Berry worked for the security services in the 1930s  – anyone for the Cambridge spy ring and Eric Hobsbawm?  – and became a well-known zoologist and ecologist. Berry was the first Director of the Nature Conservancy Council for Scotland. The Nature Conservancy Council for Wales hosted many associates of Dafydd’s gang and had close links with the biological sciences at UCNW. John Berry did his PhD at the University of St Andrews, which was where Bluglass trained as a Top Doctor while Lord Robert Hunter held senior academic positions there. Berry was much older than Bluglass, but alumni networks of posh universities like St Andrews are powerful things. Whether there is any connection between John Berry and Dr Colin Berry, Bluglass’s sidekick who assisted Bluglass in concealing the criminality of Dafydd and the gang in 1989 (see post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE), I have yet to clarify.
Sir Peter Scott was, like David Attenborough, a familiar face on the BBC re nature and wildlife programmes, particularly those for children, throughout the 1960s and 70s.
Having mentioned so many paedophiles’ friends upon whom Lilibet has bestowed honours on this blog, I keep remembering one of the fantasies of Brown’s brother when he was a teenager. There was a small time farmer who lived near us in Somerset who was notorious for being rough and ready and there were constant allegations that he stole cattle from Taunton market. On one occasion it went around that he had been caught but not charged, but having been caught he was now out of action. A few months after this, he stopped to give Brown a lift and Brown said ooh thanks and got in and noticed that the car was in a very ropy state and they started chatting. The man said the usual ie. ‘you’re Mrs Brown’s son aren’t you’ etc and asked Brown what he was doing, so Brown explained that he had graduated and now wanted to do a PhD. Being conversational, Brown said ‘and what are you doing yourself at the moment?’ to which the response was ‘well I was in calves but I’ve been put out of business’.
This translation of ‘being caught at Taunton market’ caused a lot of entertainment in the Brown household. Even more mysteriously, this man then came into quite serious money, opened a little restaurant and dressed up in posh gear to do the restaurateur bit in the evening. Brown’s brother thought this was the biggest laugh ever and stated that what needed to happen now was for Fatty Plowright – as he was known – to be awarded an OBE and a knighthood and then to have his arrival at a Royal Ball announced thus: ‘Sir Roger Fatteigh-Plowright OBE’…
I’m going to give Brown’s brother something even more extraordinary to consider now. Remember which year it was when Fatteigh came into all that money Brown’s brother?? How no-one quite understood where it came from and that the story of ‘the lottery win’ wasn’t believed by everyone?? Are you thinking what I have recently been told re the source of the dosh???
Fatteigh hit riches after Dafydd et al came after me. Mrs Brown knew Fatteigh’s children and step-children from her parish work in Stogursey. Fatteigh’s step-children were the grandchildren of the lady who used to clean for my granny and grandpa and they knew the man who’s goats I used to help look after, whom I have been told was a member of the paedophile ring in Bridgwater with links to Dafydd. They used to live in the cottage where the man with the goats subsequently lived. One of Fatteigh’s step-children developed serious mental health problems when he was a young man and spent a long time in Tone Vale, the Denbigh of Somerset. I have heard that he’s doing much better now… I don’t have a problem with him, I used to play with him when we were kids, but if he wants to make a complaint about any Top Doctor or other person, he’s welcome to use info on the blog if it helps.
On one occasion, Mrs Brown discovered Fatteigh and a teenaged girl in what Mrs Brown politely described as a ‘compromising position’. Fatteigh and the then teenager will remember it well.
Mrs Brown was found unexpectedly dead in her house in 2005, after the paedophiles’ friends declared war all over again after Brown and I appeared in print discussing the mental health services. Mrs Brown was frail but she wasn’t ill. Before she died she told Brown that the alarm in her house which was used to summon help in an emergency wasn’t working; it was connected to an NHS helpline. I have since been told that it was working but it wasn’t being answered.
Perhaps Dr MacAdam of Nether Stowey could shed a bit of light on this, he was Mrs Brown’s Top Doc for years.
Mrs Brown lived next door to a girl with whom I was friends at school. She was greatly distressed when Mrs Brown died and I was told by a third party that it was she who realised that Mrs Brown had died and summoned help. She had previously been a patient at Tone Vale and whoops that upset with Mrs Brown meant that the Top Doctors descended upon her once more. I have known her for years and while her experiences with the Top Docs weren’t quite in the league of mine with Dafydd et al, I can identify a catalogue of neglect and abuse when I hear about it. When she was young, she acquired a boyfriend whom she met in Tone Vale. He died, allegedly after an overdose, I think in the ambulance on the way to hospital. There was nothing that anyone could have done…
My friend had these difficulties after I began having problems with Dafydd and Gwynne et al. I never told those we know and love that I was friendly with this young woman, but I did used to ring her up and I know now that our phone was bugged and we were under surveillance. Not so long ago her dad died while in the care of Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton. She noticed that the care was dreadful and he died of complications that were the result of a cock-up by the hospital.
One thing that did surprise me when my friend and I were comparing notes on the mental health services was that my friend, like so many in north Wales, had dealings with the police as a result of a complaint by her CPN. While prosecuting one’s own patients has become increasingly common across the UK after having been successfully pioneered by the paedophile gang in north Wales, my friend was the subject of a complaint to the police for something that would have made Gwynedd Social Services proud: for shouting at the CPN when the CPN was in my friend’s house, after initially refusing to let the CPN into her house because my friend really does not like that CPN. My friend has bipolar disorder. The crime was so trivial that my friend was simply given a caution by the police.
My old school friends in Somerset who knew what happened to me in north Wales seem to have experienced a great deal of distress at the hands of the Top Doctors.
The only surprise is that Miranda didn’t make Fatteigh a People’s Peer. Lord Fatteigh-Plowright of Taunton Market. Here are Lord Tom of Bridgwater, with Lord Paddy of Pantsdown and Lady Callaghan of Nepotism, who All Knew About Dafydd:
Some years before Brown’s brother wanted Fatteigh announced at a Royal Ball, I told my friend at school that my ambition was to hold a luncheon for her at Boodles. I had no idea what Boodles was, but we were reading the Court & Circular column in the Torygraph – a section of the Torygraph which was obviously aimed at schoolgirls in Bridgwater – and there was a notice that Sir Bufton Tufton or Sir Herbert Gusset or someone was holding a luncheon at Boodles and I liked the sound of that. Boodles is of course one of the London gentleman’s clubs where Dafydd’s umbrellas hang out, I expect that Richard Crossman was a regular there. Having found out now how High Society of St James’s actually works, I think I’ll give Boodles a miss and take my friend somewhere else. We’ll go to Greggs, where we can pretend to be Tom King’s wife and have a sausage roll.

Sir Edward Dillon Lott du Cann, KBE, crook and Tory MP for Taunton, 1956-87 (see previous posts):
Du Cann served in the RNVR, like so many… He was a student at St John’s College, Oxford, where he was a friend of Kingsley Amis. Sir Idwal Vaughan Pugh (10 February 1918-21 April 2010) was Permanent Secretary at the Welsh Office, 1969-70 and served as Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration and Health Service Commissioner for England, Scotland and Wales, 1976-Dec 1978. There were no investigations into Dafydd and Gwynne while Idwal was in charge. Idwal was the son of a school teacher from Blaenau Ffestiniog, a town just down the road from Clough’s Kingdom, who grew up in south Wales in George Thomas Central. See post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’ for details of the horrors which Idwal managed to ignore and his links to Dafydd and associates.
Kingsley Amis was pals with du Cann, but even closer to another student when Amis was at St John’s, namely Philip Larkin. My post ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’ discusses the well-known poets with whom Harold Wilson’s wife Mary was friendly, being a poet herself, including John Betjamin, the father of Candida Lycett-Green, one of the founders of ‘Private Eye’ (see previous posts). The founders of the Eye did know about the Westminster Paedophile Ring but never published anything about it. Not even when they were given the Jeremy Thorpe story in the 1960s. Ronnie Waterhouse worked as a libel reader for the Eye.
Philip Larkin for years was the librarian at Hull University, an institution in which senior staff were colluding with the trafficking ring in Yorkshire of which Savile was the ringleader. Larkin’s long-term mistress was Monica Jones (see previous posts) who worked at Leicester University. Monica lived near Brown when he had so much aggro and obstruction as a PhD student at Leicester University. See eg. post ‘Life In Cold Blood’.
Kingsley Amis was a member of the Communist Party, 1941-56, so knew Eric Hobsbawm, E.P. Thompson, Uncle Harry’s nephew’s dad et al as detailed in previous posts eg. ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’. Amis worked as a lecturer at University College, Swansea, 1949-61. Rhodri Morgan’s mum and dad were both students at Swansea and his dad stayed joined the academic staff there. Rhodri’s brother Prys Morgan also ended up on the academic staff at Swansea and became a Professor of History there. Prys Morgan was a student at St John’s College Oxford…

Rhodri’s parents’ time at Swansea overlapped with the years when Dafydd’s mate Saunders Lewis worked there. Saunders Lewis was also mates with J.E. Daniel, the father of Dafydd’s pal the corrupt judge Huw Daniel. See post ‘Tan yn Llyn’. Saunders Lewis lived until Oct 1995, so not only was he around to assist the gang after the investigations and inquiries had begun, but Saunders was still busy when Carlo was appointed the Chancellor of the University of Wales, in 1976; Swansea was one of the constituent colleges of the University of Wales, as well as UCNW.

During 1958–59 Amis was Visiting Fellow at Princeton University and a visiting lecturer in other north-eastern universities. After 13 years at Swansea, Amis became a Fellow of Peterhouse, Cambridge, 1961–1963. He found Cambridge an academic and social disappointment and resigned in 1963 and moved to London. Peterhouse was an institution where the dons and students had an interesting past-time of partying while dressed in ladies’ clothes and when doing this they went under girls’ names. Michael Portillo went to Peterhouse. See previous posts…

In 1963, Amis separated from his wife Hilary and moved in with the novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard. Amis divorced Hilary in 1965 and married Howard the same year. In 1968 he moved with Howard to Lemmons, a house in Barnet, north London. She and Amis divorced in 1983. In his last years, Kingsley Amis shared a house with his first wife Hilary and her third husband, Alastair Boyd, 7th Baron Kilmarnock.

Alastair Ivor Gilbert Boyd, 7th Baron Kilmarnock (11 May 1927-19 March 2009) was Chief of the Clan Boyd. Boyd was an aristo and served as a pageboy at the coronation of King George VI. He was educated at Bradfield College and King’s College, Cambridge and was commissioned into the Irish Guards, 1946-48. Boyd married Diana Mary Gibson in 1954 but the marriage was dissolved in 1970. He married Hilary in 1977. Boyd lived for much of his life in Andalusia, where he variously ran a tapas bar and a language school. After inheriting his father’s title in 1975, Alastair Boyd took his seat in Lords, eventually joining the SDP. He served as the SDP’s Chief Whip in the Lords, 1983 -86. Boyd was the Deputy Leader of the SDP Peers, 1986–87 and served as the Chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on AIDS, 1987-96.
The Gang Of Four based their whole strategy for electoral success on their knowledge of the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see eg. ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’), of which Woy was a member and Dr Death one of the Top Docs who’s mates were running it, including Death’s pals in north Wales.
Michael Adler was a Top Doc who made his names as a pioneer in the field of AIDS, when rent boys first began dying from AIDS in the mid-late 1980s in London. Adler knew that many of them had become infected after being forced into sex work when they were in care, including many from north Wales. The first AIDS wards were at the Middlesex Hospital, which was where Gwynne had trained; the Middlesex’s network protected Gwynne for the rest of his career. Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain was one of those who worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School who was colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring, as well as Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Chamberlain’s wife Jocelyn worked at the Middlesex, where she was one of those who developed the cervical cancer screening programme, which has Saved Lives and would Save Even More Lives if only those silly women weren’t Refusing Invitations because they are Ashamed Of Their Bodies.
Please wake up everyone, this lot were running a sex abuse ring and faking their data. Do you REALLY believe that they came up with an idea that would involve every woman in the country being ordered to have gynaecological exams lest they develop a condition which is not THAT common and from which some of them will definitely not be at risk anyway and then didn’t bother to publicise the fact that they didn’t have enough staff in the labs to run the programme, simply out of the goodness of their hearts? If they had really wanted to Save Lives, they would have been screaming at the tops of their voices about the laughable pay that was offered to the lab technicians that made in almost impossible to recruit; there would have been the sort of noise that there is at present over the shortage of midwives.
Michael Adler is married to Baroness Margaret Jay, who was also involved with AIDS work. Miranda made the Baroness a Health Minister when he became PM in 1997. The Baroness, like Michael Adler, knew how so many of the AIDS patients became infected. Her dad and mum Jim and Audrey Callaghan colluded with Dafydd’s gang and the Westminster Paedophile Ring and it was Jim and Audrey who, when Jim was Home Secretary, gave Leo Abse all the help that he needed to implement his plan to rewrite the legislation relating to kids in care. This resulted in the Children Act 1975, as a result of which hundreds of kids were sent to children’s homes in north Wales or into the clutches of linked gangs. Dr Death provided the private member’s bill needed to complete the task. See post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’.
Sunny Jim faced accusations of outrageous nepotism when he appointed the Baroness’s first husband Peter Jay as the US Ambassador. It was actually the Foreign Secretary who advised Sunny Jim to do that, one Dr Death. Peter Jay was Dr Death’s friend.
Dr Death was a pal of Crossman’s and was cluttering up the DHSS when Crossman was running it. Death was giving Crossman orders when Death was still a minion. It was Death who advised on merging the Ministries of Health and Social Security to form the super-dept of the DHSS, thus bring everyone who was playing major roles in the Westminster Paedophile Ring into one Dept, which was of course a huge and very powerful one after the merger.
Peter Jay’s mum Peggy Jay knew Crossman and is mentioned in his ‘Diaries’. Peggy Jay was the Labour Chairman of a Regional Health Board, the organisations which ran the NHS until the restructuring of the early 1970s. After the restructuring, the members and Chairmen of the RHBs were appointed as members and Chairmen of the new bodies, the Regional and District Health Authorities. Crossman was friendly with Peggy Jay and her husband Douglas and socialised with them at formal public occasions as well as at dinner parties held by his friends, including Nicholas and Olga Davenport. See post ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’.
After Peggy Jay died, the Torygraph published her obituary in Jan 2008:

Peggy Jay, who died on Monday aged 94, was a grande dame of the Labour movement, known for her good works on a host of local government committees and as the wife of the cabinet minister Douglas Jay.

It could be argued that the second role was the more heroic. She fell in love with her future husband while in her teens and married him when she was 20 – despite his warning that he considered monogamy “a sin”, a belief that he was not slow to put into practice.

Nontheless the marriage produced four children and endured for almost 40 years; and although Peggy Jay suffered much, in later life she was able to say that her former husband remained “the touchstone of my life”.

She was born Margaret Christian Garnett in Manchester on January 28 1913. A year later her three-year-old brother died, to the lasting grief of her parents; that grief, she later speculated, might have been responsible for her “restless, striving spirit, always longing to be recognised and approved of, and above all, to achieve.”

At the time of her birth her father, Maxwell Garnett, was principal of the Manchester Institute of Technology (now UMIST, part of Manchester University). Six years later he was appointed general secretary of the League of Nations Union, and the family moved to Hampstead.

Peggy hated Malvern Girls’ College, and was sent instead to St Paul’s, where she thrived. Douglas Jay’s family lived next door to the Garnetts in Hampstead, and as an undergraduate at New College, Oxford,

New College was a recruiting ground for the British security services; Richard Crossman was a student and a don there and was recruited and then became a recruiter.

he coached Peggy for her matriculation exam. At her coming out party, as she and her “tutor” danced to The Blue Danube, she resolved to marry him.

At Somerville College, Oxford,

Graduates included Thatch and Shirl…

Peggy joined the Labour Party and took a two-year diploma in Economics and Politics. By now Douglas was a Fellow of All Souls. When, in 1933, they married at Hampstead parish church the couple decided to set off for their honeymoon in Italy immediately after the service, leaving Peggy’s parents to host a reception without bride or groom.

In their early married life the brilliant, but difficult, Douglas Jay worked as a journalist; their friends were figures such as the Gaitskells, Nicholas Kaldor, Thomas Balogh and Hugh Dalton.

Kaldor was a mate of Crossman’s and Kaldor’s wife Clarissa was Chairman of a Regional Hospital Board. I hope to cover them in a future post. They were big pals of E.P. Thompson, who had a second home at Croesor. See previous posts. Kaldor and Clarissa, who was a ‘a prominent figure in Cambridge city life’, as was a friend of Thatch and Jimmy Savile who also protected Dafydd and the gang

had four daughters: Penny Milsom, a former London Borough of Islington Labour Councillor; Katharine Hoskyns, who has stood as a Labour candidate for Westminster City Council; Frances Stewart, Professor of Economic Development at Oxford University and Mary Kaldor, Professor of Human Security at the LSE, who has starred in a previous post for her role in hailing E.P. Thompson as the man who saved the world but hasn’t yet been recognised for it.

Anyone else want to laugh at my friend Biggus?

Peggy busied herself with voluntary work, and in 1938 was elected to the London County Council as Labour member for Central Hackney. A year earlier she had given birth to their first child, Peter, who would become British ambassador to Washington and economics editor of the BBC.

During the war Douglas Jay worked at the Ministry of Supply and the Board of Trade, and after the Labour victory in 1945 he was appointed an economics adviser to the prime minister, Clement Attlee; the next year he was elected to parliament.

Peggy Jay, meanwhile, continued her career in local government. In 1952 she was returned as Labour member for North Battersea, becoming chairman of the schools’ committee and vice-chairman of the welfare committee; she also served on the children’s committee.

The organised abuse upon which Dafydd’s partner gang in London would build and expand was already present in Battersea in the early 1950s.

In 1964 she was elected to the new GLC. As chairman of the parks’ committee she took a particular interest in the development of the “One O’Clock Clubs” for young mothers. In the same year Harold Wilson formed a new Labour administration, and Douglas became President of the Board of Trade.

The Westminster Paedophile Ring was up and running and about to take off in a major way, because Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson had been appointed Minister of Health.

Peggy Jay lost her seat in 1967. By now her marriage was starting to disintegrate, and she and Douglas Jay divorced in 1972.

Her former husband was created a life peer in 1987,

The year that Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane granted Professor Oliver Brooke of St George’s early release from prison after Ollie had been done for child porn. In 1987, Dafydd and the gang hatched an elaborate plant to frame and imprison me just after the June General Election for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’ but it unravelled when two key witnesses didn’t tell as many lies as they needed to. See eg. post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’

and it seems that Peggy Jay could have sat alongside him in the Upper House. She once revealed: “Wilson was said to have offered me a life peerage. Then Jim Callaghan, who was by then my co-grandparent [his daughter, now Baroness Jay, was then the wife of Peter Jay] said, ‘I’m afraid Harold’s withdrawn the offer because he thinks it would be nepotistic to appoint the wife of an MP.’ And who does he appoint? Barbara Castle’s husband. Bit of a phoney that, don’t you think?”

They were all phonies, worthy of leading roles in ‘Catcher In The Rye’.

In the 1980s Peggy Jay left Labour to join the SDP, principally over the issue of unilateral disarmament.

Peggy found her soul mate, who was a good friend of her son Peter:

She returned to the fold only in July last year, explaining: “I have always admired Mr Brown, and when he became the leader I was extremely pleased. I am so happy to be back with the Labour Party again. It is where I feel I belong.”

Gordon Brown, who’s wife Sarah was a good friend and business partner of Julia Hobsbawm who’s family were resident in Hampstead and Croesor…

As a resident of Hampstead for almost all her life Peggy Jay was much preoccupied with its conservation, as chairman (later life president) of the Heath and Old Hampstead Society. Among the objects of her scorn were a new Tesco Express in the High Street, a McDonald’s and a lap dancing club.

She was chairman of North Camden Community Health Council, taking an interest in psychiatric hospitals and the mentally handicapped. She also served on the Parole Board and as a magistrate.

Oh God, as bad as I feared. The disadvantaged of Camden were preyed on by the trafficking ring operating in the area, with which Dafydd had direct links. In the early years of the millennium, as Rhodri Morgan ignored the carnage at the Hergest Unit in Gwynedd, it was revealed that North West Wales had the second highest rate of suicide among women of any area in England and Wales. Only Camden had a higher rate. Surely Peggy should have been asked to explain this?

Dafydd’s mates Robert Bluglass, Colin Berry and David Mawson were all members of the Parole Board after they had proved themselves by concealing the crimes of Dafydd and the gang. See previous posts.

In 1990 she published an autobiography, Loves and Labours.

Peggy Jay’s 90th birthday party was held at Burgh House, Hampstead, the Queen Anne property which she had helped to save for the local community. At the party her son Peter described his mother as “a dragon descending on officialdom… not a traditional politician, no soft words or kissed babies… but a fighter”.

She was a fucking monster in lipstick. However did that lap dancing club gain the impression that Peggy’s neighbourhood may have provided fertile ground for its growth?

She is survived by her sons, Peter and Martin, and by her twin daughters, Helen and Catherine.

Peggy’s obituary in ‘The Guardian’, written by Illtyd Harrington (see previous posts) told us more:
Peggy Jay, who has died aged 94, was the last of a line of Hampstead middle-class Labour grandes dames whom Herbert Morrison selected, or more likely groomed, to take over the London county council in 1934.
Mandy’s granddad…
After Labour’s national collapse in 1931, this ubiquitous apparatchik knew that County Hall would be winnable in three years’ time, and his plan needed the voice, personality and moderation of the middle classes.
The corrupt abusing middle classes…
Among the recruits to his A-team were Helen Bentwitch, Margaret Cole, Mrs Douglas Bolton (Beatrice Webb’s secretary) and Freda Corbett, later MP for Peckham.
The accessories…

Jay was among his “elect” and her opportunity came sooner than expected. A byelection in Hackney, east London, occurred in 1934. She was thrown into the turbulent and violent world of East End politics, confronting communists and the presence of Sir Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists. In her 20s, she won and arrived before the inevitable Labour LCC victory that year, remaining until its successor, the first Labour Greater London council, was defeated in 1967.

Peggy and co were just as ruthless, it’s why Mandy’s granddad selected them. Neither did they/do they give a damn about the miracle of births among those less fortunate than them. Their granddaughters are hiring  doulas, while in north Wales the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is in special measures because the maternity services were killing mothers and babies.

Peggy was born in London, to the Garnett family, which often served radical causes – an alternative civil service for Labour. In later years, she took pride in her niece Virginia Bottomley’s role in the governments of Margaret Thatcher and John Major.

Virginia the former psychiatric social worker: she concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the gang, lied about Dafydd ‘retiring’ and lied about the North Wales Hospital closing down. See post ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’ Then there are the forged documents that are in my possession, forged by NHS staff and lawyers while Ginny was Health Minister and then Secretary of State. Then there’s the  perjury as well… See previous posts.

Her sister-in-law, Virginia’s mother, became the Tory leader on the Inner London Education Authority. Its predecessor had been inflexibly held by the Labour party.

See previous posts for details of Virginia’s friends and relations, of which there are a great many…

Peggy married the self-assertive economic journalist and later Labour minister Douglas Jay in 1933 and they had two sons and girl twins. Peter shone in his father’s light, as a journalist, TV presenter and ambassador to the US, while Catherine and Helen hit every go button in the swinging 60s. Martin became a designer of seagoing yachts.

Did he know a man called Heath?

Douglas glided along the corridors of power and gave out a brazen and infallible doctrine of social democracy. He was renowned for his parsimony and libido; took his own cornflakes abroad. A member of Clement Attlee’s praetorian guard, he was brought up sharply when he pronounced: “The man in Whitehall knows best.” He represented Battersea North in parliament and Peggy mirrored him as the LCC member for Battersea. She was, at first appearances, haughty, perhaps imperious,

But underneath lay a heart of gold…

but she used the Rolls-Royce efficiency of the LCC to help alleviate areas of poverty, children’s needs and in the field of decent housing for working-class families.

She was just so successful wasn’t she.

Her friendship with Audrey Callaghan

The people trafficker and fundraiser for Great Ormond Street

on the LCC’s children’s committee is still talked about as a partnership of practical compassion for deprived children.

Many of whom will have died young, often in prison or by their own hand, after enjoying Help from Peggy and Audrey’s mates in the children’s social services and mental health system.

Even during the early Harold Wilson years, Audrey and Peggy departed in July for the summer on the Isle of Wight, where they had ancestral cottages, leaving husbands Jim and Douglas in Whitehall.

Nye and Uncle Harry really did do it All For the Poor didn’t they.

Peggy’s marriage ended in divorce in 1972, but she never played the part of the betrayed wife. On one occasion in 1964 it is alleged that Douglas did not want to take her to the state opening of parliament. Peggy, arrayed in formal attire, drove off in his old banger, which “broke down” in Hampstead High Street.

Her friends felt she had been deliberately humiliated;

In which house? The residence in Hampstead? Or the ancestral cottage on the Isle of Wight? Or in Harrods? Or on a yacht somewhere perhaps?

others claim that the offer of a life peerage to Douglas came because of her close friendship with what was left of Hugh Gaitskell’s Hampstead set. The matriarch of the Hampstead Labour party, she left for the SDP after it was formed in 1981, returning to Labour only in the past year or so. She was regal in defending Hampstead Heath and the town from unpleasant encroachment.

Encroachment from the lower orders would that be? Who might have disturbed Michael Foot shagging on the Heath, as he admitted was one way that he passed the time of day?

She was sometimes described as the Queen of Hearts, as in “off with their heads”.

The witnesses to the crimes of Peggy’s friends and colleagues in north Wales were left to die and if they hung around for too long they were murdered.

We became close during the GLC period, and when I pressed for improvements and greater access to the London canal system, she defended me and threw the weight of the GLC’s parks department behind the proposal. Her last County Hall chairmanship, of the arts and recreation committee, was a fruitful three years. Our parks bloomed, events were popular and democratic.

Other people’s kids continued to be sent into the arms of Dafydd and the gang

She coaxed Henry Moore, a difficult man, into supporting sculpture in the parks, particularly in Battersea Park and the spectacular setting of Kenwood, and perhaps most of all One O’Clock Clubs, places where harassed young mothers could bring toddlers for organised activity in the early afternoon.

An invitation from Cruella…

At our last meeting, the funeral of a Hampstead worthy, I told her she reminded me of “the Unsinkable Molly Brown”. A quizzical look and a voice worthy of the headmistress of Roedean replied: “What on earth are you talking about now?” I think she knew. Sadly, no one in our ruling political elite floundering for a definition of community asked her advice.

I can see the horror on her face when I took her to a hostel for the homeless in Stoke Newington. Things changed.

QUE??? I used to live near there, Dafydd sent gangsters after me…

Anyone remember the legendary corrupt and violent coppers of Stoke Newington Police Station? No-one stopped them.

Rhett Butler

Or I can see her encouraging park keepers and gardeners or even, best of all, in recent months staring out a developer who was eyeing up Hampstead Heath. Perhaps that is where she should be buried. She is survived by her sons and daughters

To return to AIDS, a field which benefited from the attentions of Peggy’s daughter-in-law, the Baroness Margaret. Older readers may remember that it was Di who was wheeled out to Shake Hands With An AIDS patient at the Middlesex Hospital to Fight The Stigma. However would a Stigma over such a matter have developed, particularly in Rent Boy Central, north east Wales?
‘Now ewe do realise what it would do to ewe’r standing in the community if ewe’r homosexual tendencies were to become known don’t ewe?’
It is just so sad that so many people allowed themselves to be blackmailed by Dafydd instead of taking a leaf out of Patient F’s book.
‘Ewe lied. Ewe lied.’ ‘I lied – you murdered’.
What was wrong with them all? If Empowered Service Users who’d entered the gates of hell into Risley and the Denbigh Dungeon could roll around laughing at Dafydd, why weren’t those who take themselves seriously in tears of laughter? Every time Dafydd opened his mouth something completely ridiculous came out, it didn’t matter where he was or in what context he was speaking. Meanwhile the Hampstead crowd propped up his empire.

See posts ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’ for accounts of medical services and huge building projects which were funded by Gov’t when the former kids in care from north Wales began dying of AIDS in the 1980s and ruthless local Councillors and politicians in London reminded Gov’t of how those boys cam to be infected with HIV…


Sir Kingsley’s son Martin Louis Amis (born 25 August 1949) has spent his adult life under discussion with regard to whether he is as obnoxious and misogynistic as his father. His name was cleared in the eyes of some by having a relationship with Germaine Greer, but in the eyes of those who hate Germaine Greer, this just contributed to the evidence that he was. One of Martin’s novels is ‘Money: A Suicide Note’ (1984). The paedophiles’ friends opened fire on Brown and me big time in 1984, after we complained about Gwynne the lobotomist. Gwynne pegged out in 1986, an attempt to rewrite his place in history was undertaken, the only problem being the existence of people like Brown and I who wouldn’t shut up about him and the gang. My post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’ discusses the many attempts to silence us, including that plan and subsequent attempt to frame and imprison me in July 1987.

In June 1987, the man who’s family and friends ran Swansea University (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’) was elected the Labour MP for Cardiff West, George Thomas’s former constituency.

Martin Amis spent part of his school days at Bishop Gore School aka Swansea Grammar. Bishop Gore has educated many people who later achieved seniority and influence, including Lord Brian Flowers. Flowers was a physicist but in his position as Rector of Imperial College and then VC of London University, Flowers presided over the Top Docs who were perpetrating medical research fraud and running the Westminster Paedophile Ring and allowed them to continue doing it because it resulted in massive amounts of research funding flowing into London University and a seat for Flowers in the Lords. Just to be on the safe side, Flowers also spent a few years as VC of Manchester University, where Dafydd and Tony Francis’s mates had yet another hub. See previous posts for further details re Flowers.

Martin Amis was Professor of Creative Writing at Manchester University, 2007-11.

Amis’s work centres on the excesses of late-capitalist Western society, whose perceived absurdity he often satirises through grotesque caricature; he has been portrayed as a master of what ‘The New York Times’ called “the new unpleasantness”. Amis and his friends would have done anything to have opposed it, except for er, um, er, but I’m a famous novelist, I don’t want live like an Empowered Service User…

All you had to do Martin was to have grassed up this:

Martin Amis: A Famous Angry Novelist

Amis was born in Oxford. His mother father Hilary was the daughter of a Ministry of Agriculture civil servant. After Bishop Gore School, he attended Cambridgeshire High School for Boys. There was an elite sex abuse ring in Cambridgeshire, centred upon Cambridge University where Martin’s dad worked for a short time.

Martin graduated from Exeter College, Oxford. After Oxford, he found an entry-level job at The Times Literary Supplement and at the age of 27 became literary editor of the ‘New Statesman’ where he met Christopher Hitchens, then a feature writer for ‘The Observer’, who remained a close friend until Hitchens died in 2011.

For years, the ‘New Statesman’ was entirely dominated by the crowd on the left who had been part of, or were friends with, the Welsh Bloomsbury Group. Eric Hobsbawm, E.P. Thomson and co were regulars in there and the small ads were for the benefit of people who lived in Peggy’s part of London. Richard Crossman was Assistant Editor of the ‘New Statesman’, 1938-55 and was Editor, 1970-72.

When Richard Webster wanted to trash Alison Taylor and tell the world that there were no serious problems with regard to the abuse of kids in care in north Wales or even in Bryn Estyn per se, Webster published his article in the ‘New Statesman’. Alison sued for libel and won; she represented herself and the New Statesman later admitted that it had published the article on the assumption that Alison couldn’t afford to sue, having been unfairly dismissed by Gwynedd County Council. Which seems to be the MO pf Gwynedd County Council. When I went to see the senior managers of Gwynedd Social Services, Glyn Davies and Martin Davidson, accompanied by my legal aided funded solicitor in the aftermath of me being forced out of my teaching job on the basis of allegations that I was a danger to children – allegations which were known at the time to be without foundation – and over matters of a flagrant breach of confidentiality, Glyn Davies told us that yes, Gwynedd Social Services and social worker Keith Fearns had broken the law and breached all policies, no, there would not be an investigation or any action taken by Gwynedd County Council and if I wanted to take the matter further, I’d have to take legal action for which legal aid was not available and as I was now unemployed Glyn didn’t think that I’d be able to do that. He then literally laughed as we left the office. See previous posts.

I later found out that Martin Davidson, the senior manager responsible for mental health, was married to Nonn Williams, the Director of Social Services for Gwynedd and she had appointed him and negotiated his (generous) salary. See previous posts.

Some two years later I was told by two distraught parents that their daughter had been abused by a teaching assistant in a primary school near Caernarfon. When they raised the matter, they were accused of abuse themselves. I was told that the grandchildren of Dafydd Wigley, the former Plaid MP for Caernarfon, were also at the school, that other parents had raised concerns but the matter was being concealed by Gwynedd Education Authority.

I was forced out of my teaching job in a small private school after I reported the abuse of a child at Ysgol Sir Huw Owen, in Caernarfon. Dafydd Wigley’s children went to Sir Huw Owen, where they were taught by Dr Prys Morgan Jones, the Dean of the School of Education at Bangor University until he retired some years ago. I have been receiving info from readers that Prys, while making every apparent effort to remain on good terms with me, was one of the network who fuelled the fire re baseless allegations etc.

I have mentioned many time that Bangor University was bugged by the security services. A mole has sent me a transcript of an incident that I remember clearly. After I had been forced out of teaching, I returned to Bangor to do a PhD, in the School of Education, which was then the cause of WW III and the demands for Merfyn the VC’s head on a plate. I have been told that Prys was involved but I didn’t know that. Prys went on a cross-country ski-ing holiday just after I began my PhD and when he returned he was quipping that he fell over so many times that if a social worker saw his bottom they’d take him into care. To which I replied ‘we are in north Wales, if you’re bottom is damaged it’ll be a social worker who has done it…’

I’m told that my joke constituted the most blatant threat that the ex-teachers who were Dafydd’s mates and littering the School of Education had ever experienced and so it was all systems go to get rid of me, my PhD supervisor, his wife who also worked in Bangor University and Merfyn.

Well they did it, but I think in the wake of this blog perhaps they realise that they probably should have just appreciated that four hardworking people who had all maintained a silence in public with regard to the most disgusting behaviour on the part of a gang of paedophiles might have had something to contribute to the University.

No they won’t, why ever would I think that any of them have seen the error of their ways?They are petty, small minded, vindictive not very bright and many of them remained silent in the face of serious criminality, why would they ever be regretting any of it?

They’re probably too stupid to realise that they’ve been carpet bombed only as a result of their own appalling conduct.

Geoffrey Robinson owned the ‘New Statesman’, 1996-2008, when it published the libellous article about Alison. Robinson has been the Labour MP for Coventry North West since 1976. Robinson is the seriously wealthy businessman who’s financial dealings with Mandelson with regard to Mandy’s mortgage resulted in Mandy’s first resignation from office. The Mandy who’s dad Herbert Morrison was that mate of Peggy’s all those years ago while Westminster and Whitehall Swung but were firmly in denial; the Mandy who worked for LWT which made a fortune out of its light entertainment TV favourite Blind Date, which starred Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain’s personal friend Cilla Black; the Mandy who served as a Lambeth Councillor, while kids in Lambeth were abused, both in Lambeth and when they were packed off to children’s homes in north Wales. The Mandy who served as MP for Hartlepool, 1992-04, on the territory of Dafydd’s partner gang in the North East of England.

Another of Dafydd’s partner gangs ruled Coventry; kids from Coventry were sent to north Wales as well. Bluglass was assisted by Dr Colin Berry of the Walsgrove Hospital in Coventry in concealing Dafydd and the gang’s criminality in 1989.

Richard Crossman was the Labour MP for Coventry East, 1945-74. Walsgrave Hospital was built while he was Secretary of State at the DHSS, but he didn’t attend the Royal Cutting of the Red Ribbon when it was opened, because that took place very shortly after the 1970 election which Wilson lost so Crossman was no longer in Gov’t. See previous post.

Warwick University is at Coventry. Warwick is a university that takes itself seriously and is a member of the Russell Group. It has a famous business school with such affluent people working there that the car park bears no resemblance to any other university car park in the UK. Warwick University was the location of student riots in the early 1970s, after students discovered that the University had kept secret files on them and that the VC, Lord Jack Butterworth, had been involved with dodgy business dealings. Richard Crossman was good mates with Jack and his wife Doris, but their adventures will be the topic of a future blog post.

The Warwick Events of the 1970s starred Merfyn Jones in his role as Chairman of the Socialist Society and resulted in E.P. Thompson leaving his academic post at Warwick in disgust at the conduct of Jack Butterworth.

Richard Crossman, a member and an organiser of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, was good mates with Jack  Butterworth… Jack was doing such atrocious things that the students rioted and E.P. Thompson published a book discussing the questionable practices of Jack.

Coventry was and is represented by Labour politicians. Coventry is in the most terrible state, it is a city with some of the highest levels of poverty in the UK and the worst health outcomes. Warwick University now has a Medical School, which is of course staffed by World Leading Top Docs. They’re just not doing a great deal for the health of people in Coventry.

Something has gone wrong somewhere hasn’t it.

Anyone for some more Events on a rather bigger scale than those at Warwick in the early 1970s?


As for ‘The Observer’, the other organ for which Martin Amis’s friend Christopher Hitchens wrote, Norah Beloff and her husband also worked for that publication. Norah was the sister of Lord Max Beloff who was associated with Thatch and her various think tanks and projects and was also a friend of Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council when the paedophile ring was busy within the Council. See post ‘The International Language of Screaming’ for details of the Beloff family and their network. Lord Max’s son Michael Beloff QC is a colleague of Cherie’s and a pal of both Cherie and Miranda. Michael Beloff was the legal adviser who completely suppressed the Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council, 1974-93. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’

Rhett Butler


Geoffrey Robinson’s predecessor as the MP for Coventry North West was Israel Maurice Edelman (2 March 1911-14 December 1975), who was born in Cardiff. His parents came to Wales in 1905, escaping the pograms in Tsarist Russia and Poland. Living in Cardiff at the time with that history, Edelman will have known Barnet Janner and his son Greville, Leo Abse and his family and through them George Thomas, who also all lived in Cardiff or south Wales.

Edelman’s father was a photographer. Edelman was educated at Cardiff High School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied Modern Languages (French, German and later Russian). He joined the plywood industry in 1931 as a Company Director and at the outbreak of the WW II was engaged in research into the application of plywood and plastic materials to aircraft construction.

Edelman was a prolific journalist and author of several works of fiction and non-fiction. He also produced screenplays for TV during the 1960s and 1970s. During WW II, Edelman worked for ‘Picture Post’ as a war correspondent in North Africa and Italy.

At the 1945 General Election, Edelman was elected as MP for Coventry West and in 1950 he won the new seat of Coventry North. He was a Vice-Chairman of the British Council and Chairman of the Franco-British Parliamentary Relations Committee. Edelman was a founder member of the Council of Europe in 1949. A lifelong Francophile, Edelman was appointed Officier de la Legion d’Honneur in 1960, having previously been awarded Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur in 1954.

Following further boundary changes in 1974, Edelman represented Coventry North West until his death in 1975.

Edelman appeared on the live TV panel show What’s My Line? from New York on 29 April 1962. Lady Isobel Barnett of Leicestershire who was a Top Doc and a magistrate and had been married to a Leicester lawyer and Councillor was a ‘What’s My Line?’ regular in the 1950s and 60s. Lady Isobel was found dead in her house in Oct 1980, having gone mad in later life, taken up shoplifting, been caught and then killed herself at the shame of it all. Except that Lady Isobel herself didn’t seem to be anywhere near dying of shame, she was rather Rhett about the whole matter until she was found dead. Just after Mr Thrope had got off and at the point when Mary Wynch was heading for her lawyers to begin litigation against Dafydd and the gang. Days after Lady Isobel’s death, the ever caring Greville Janner spoke in the House re the problems of nutters who are caught shoplifting. Greville wanted Psychiatric Help for them and named Dr Michael Tarsh, one of Dafydd’s friends – who’s Expert Opinion had, just four years previously, assisted in convicting an innocent man, Stefan Kiszko, for the rape and murder of a little girl  – as a Top Doc who agreed with Greville that the shoplifting nutters should receive Help from Top Doctors. See post ‘Theatre of the Absurd’.

Maurice Edelman was also President of the Anglo-Jewish Association, and an active member of the Friends of the Hebrew University. He died on 14 December 1975 at the age of 64.

Lord Greville Janner was a man who embraced his Jewish heritage and indeed the Jewish community and held many roles within that community, as did and still do Greville’s family.


Martin Amis’s first wife was the American academic Antonia Phillips. He had an affair with the writer Isabel Fonseca and eventually divorced Phillips and married Fonseca. In late 2010 Amis bought a property in Brooklyn, New York and in  2012 he wrote in ‘The New Republic’ that he was “moving house” from Camden Town in London to Brooklyn.

In his 20s, Martin Amis had a high profile relationship with Germaine Greer, who was then 37 and a lecturer at Warwick University. Merfyn Jones was a postgrad at Warwick when Greer taught there and E.P. Thompson of the second home at Croesor was a colleague of Greer’s at Warwick.

Two days ago I wrote a substantial piece of text for this post, detailing the many links between Greer and her associates in the 1960s and 70s and their links with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s gang. It disappeared overnight and at present I don’t have the time to rewrite it. So I’ll just ask readers to take a quick look at Greer’s wiki entry and correlate some of the institutions and people with whom she was associated with info re pals of Dafydd’s network in previous posts on this blog. Here’s a few to get you started: Newnham College, Cambridge, Lisa Jardine, Footlights, Viv Stanshall, Oz magazine, Kate Millett et al, the BBC, dinners in Tuscany with Ma’am Darling, Salman Rushie, Harold Pinter, Lady Antonia, it is all there.

Even Germaine Greer was somebody else who was too busy bringing about the revolution to give a stuff about hundreds of women – and men – banged up illegally in the North Wales Hospital by a gang of sex offenders, who really were in desperate need of a revolution, rather more than the folk at elite universities were. Not a word was said, even when Germaine became famous for her books which argued, quite correctly, that the women’s health industry is predicated on scaring women into harmful practices. The people promoting the HRT etc and fleecing fertility patients were the very same people who were running the Westminster Paedophile Ring and protecting Dafydd and the gang.

I can cope with the Little People who are simply far too frightened to challenge Dafydd and the gang, but the well-heeled much feted revolutionaries have a great deal to answer for.

Anyone for an interview with the ‘London Review of Books’? I have a subscription and I enjoy the publication, but gosh there’s a lot that remains unsaid, as Tariq Ali knows.

No-one said a word about life back at the ranch:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones



  • North Wales Hospital, Denbigh - County Asylums


The son of Micky Wynn, the 7th Baron Newborough who was one of those involved with high society Ugandan discussions, is the 8th Baron Newborough, Robert Vaughan Wynn. Lord Robert Newborough spent most of his career in finance, in the global capitalist excesses of the Far East, but in later life he returned to the UK to manage the family estates. As a result of this, Lord Newborough describes himself as a farmer. He owns the Rhug Farm Shop which sells the expensive delicacies, including very expensive stuffed peppers, as described in a previous post.

Farmer Newborough’s main residence was in his house in Shropshire, but he seems to have sold that now, for £12 million. Farmer Newborough produces some excellent PR material to promote his business, which features him, a rather clean and tidy farmer in expensive countryman’s clothes, leaning over a gate chewing the cud or sitting in the cab of a huge, very expensive tractor, ready to go out to do a bit of ploughing. Sometimes Farmer Newborough is photographed in the vicinity of sheepdogs.
Farmer Newborough is an environmentally aware organic farmer who flogs his meat in Borough Market in Camden. I don’t expect that the former residents of Grenfell Tower buy much of Farmer Newborough’s produce, but it’ll go down a treat with the Hampstead crowd, such as Julia Hobsbawm and her mates. I wonder if Tulip Siddiq has ever purchased a bit of Farmer Newborough’s salt marsh lamb? They’re reared on the land on the coastal bit between Caernarfon and Llandwrog. Llanfaglan Church is there, which is the resting place of Merfyn’s late wife Nerys. Who died in 2008, the same year as Peggy Jay, but Nerys wasn’t 94 yrs old like Peggy. Lord Snowdon was placed in the graveyard of Llanfaglan Church as well when he died in 2017, which must have rather spoilt Nerys’s view of the sea. I cannot work out why a man who was born in Belgravia, lived his whole life in Belgravia and died there as well ended up in Llanfaglan Churchyard. It’s almost as if someone wanted to stick two fingers up to Nerys after she died in the care of Dafydd’s mates at the Walton Centre. Or of course piss Merfyn off.

I’m still laughing at Biggus Carlo no matter what you have done to us all.
Anyone for a trip to Borough Market for a bit of salt marsh lamb, reared in the killing fields of Gwynedd? I’ll piss on Peggy’s grave while I go to pick up a nice joint.
Do ewe mean mari-jew-ana?
Dr Dafydd Alun Jones
As well as Farmer Newborough’s sheep, that coastal bit is also the meeting place for the class A drug dealers of Caernarfon. I know this because I used to take my dog for walks there early in the morning and I used to watch the young men in their car parked up there waiting for Mr Big or at least Mr Bigger Than Them to arrive from Caernarfon and hand the goodies over. They never hassled me, but by about the fourth time I encountered them I heard them saying ‘it’s that woman with her dog again’ and I thought that they had probably made a note of my number plate so I found a new place to walk my dog. A place which was then visited by a man with a gun.
When I told Someone Who Knows about the class A drug dealers near Llanfaglan and it was agreed that they’d be working for Dafydd, I asked them if Huw Daniel the corrupt judge was being paid off. I was told ‘oh no, he’s terrified of them, they’re killers, they’d kill him as well, he just keeps out of it’.
That’s Huw the No Nonsense Judge Who’s Tough On Young Thugs. As well as on innocent people whom Dafydd’s gang have fitted up.

As might be expected of a member of the landed gentry who is an environmentalist, runs a shop which sells expensive organic food and does the farming bit wearing expensive gear while remaining remarkably unsplattered by cowshit, Farmer Newborough is friends with other similar people:
Although Farmer Newborough is now a farmer in north Wales, he does still spend a lot of time in centres of neoliberal capitalism in the Far East. I presume that he goes there to earn the dosh that he needs to do all the environmentally sound innovative things on his farm, because from what I’ve seen of them, they will have cost a great deal of money.
Much to my amusement I’ve been told that Farmer Newborough knows of my existence and furthermore he knew that I was employed at Bangor University on an EU funded project, part of which involved interviews with farmers. Nice to meet you Lord Newborough! I did used to pop into your cafe before I was chased out of Wales at gunpoint. Lest I wish to drop into the farm shop again, could I ask you to reduce the price of your stuffed peppers?
As Farmer Newborough and his Organic chum from Highgrove were, I am told, involved in the war on Merfyn and Bangor University, I’m wondering if Carlo wrote Dafydd the sort of letter that he wrote Bishop Peter Ball after Ball was the subject of a complaint re sex offences. Peter Ball told Carlo that he had made a ‘misjudgement’ and was now being ‘harassed’ by a dreadful person – which was exactly what Dafydd told people about me – and Carlo wrote back to Peter Ball commiserating over the awful pest and offering to help in any way that he could.
Carlo, I didn’t know you cared. I have always considered you to be bonkers as a result of your dysfunctional parents and the torture at Gordonstoun and as you so obviously preferred Camilla’s company to Diana’s I felt quite sorry for you being pushed into an arranged marriage that so obviously wasn’t working. However I think that you really do need to accept that allowing a lobotomist who ran a sex trafficking gang to occupy the Student Health Centre at UCNW when you were Chancellor and joining in the witch hunt against one of those who complained and who would not withdraw her complaint no matter how seriously she was threatened, was not a good idea.
Carlo is not alone. A great many people really have been very, very foolish. They need to stop the How Very Dare Yous, stop the Trying To Get Compensation Then Are Yous and instead do a Christ Almighty What Have We Allowed Ourselves To Get Involved With?
If anyone else wants to laugh at my friend Biggus, let me know.
Biggus Dickus (Life of Brian, 1979) - YouTube
When he was at the DHSS, Richard Crossman used to deal directly with the Chairmen of the Regional Hospital Boards, such as Dame Isabel Graham Bryce and Peggy. See previous posts. Like Bryce, those Chairmen all knew about the abuse and neglect in the long-stay Denbigh-esque institutions in their region and not only were they tolerated, but whenever Crossman dared suggest that their should be an increased investment in those places to improve conditions for the patients, he was met with total opposition from the Regional Hospital Boards and the Top Docs. Crossman makes repeated entries in his diary regarding how bad the long-stay hospitals are, the abuses that he knows that the Top Docs are perpetrating and he does work out budgets which would allow greater investment in the long-stay hospitals. He is met with total non-cooperation. Everyone wants a machine that goes ping, including Isabel and Peggy.
Although Crossman makes a point of telling the Chairs of the RHBs that they can deal directly with him and the Ministers rather than waste their time with the ‘officials’ as well as hosting lavish dinners for them in the best London clubs or other grand places, Crossman doesn’t have a high opinion of all of the RHB Chairmen. Two of those who are not singled out for praise are Audrey Callaghan (see previous posts) and Peggy Jay…
The RHB Chairman were all in post once Crossman had arrived. They had been in their positions when Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson was Minister of Health.
 Crossman does however rate two of the RHB Chairmen very highly, as both being ‘strong, powerful men’. One is Graham Rowlandson and the other is Desmond Bonham Carter.

Sir (Stanley) Graham Rowlandson (25 August 1908-29 January 1986) was a Tory Party member of Enfield Urban District Council, 1934-46, Chairman 1940-2; member of the Greater London Council, Enfield 1964-73, Committee Chair Establishment 2 May 1967, Finance and Scrutiny 28 April 1970, Finance and Supplies 30 September 1969. Rowlandson was High Sheriff of Middlesex, 1958; Liveryman of Worshipful Company of Masons, Master 1964; Liveryman of Worshipful Company of Paviors, Master 1975. Sir Graham was an accountant who founded the RO Group. The RO Group website has the following pics on display:

Sir Graham Rowlandson,
Richard Rowlandson OBE,
Edward Rowlandson,
Group Managing Director


A charidee is in existence called the Graham Rowlandson Foundation.

On Feb 17 1969, Crossman hosted an ‘expensive and elegant dinner’ for the RHB Chairmen, at which he insisted that Graham Bryce sat one side of him and Sir Desmond the other side. Sir Desmond was an incredibly powerful figure in the NHS at the time. He was Chairman of UCL, which prided itself on being the centre of excellence in terms of research and treatment; previous posts have mentioned some of the high profile Top Docs who trained or worked at UCL/UCH. Some of them were key players in the Westminster Paedophile Ring, including Geoffrey Chamberlain; Dame Josephine Barnes, who was the wife of Ted Heath’s friend and personal doctor Sir Brian Warren; and Marjorie Wallace’s husband, Andrew Skarbek. See previous posts eg. ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’.

Lord Max Rosenheim, who ruled the roost in the medical establishment for years and could make or break medical careers, worked at UCL and was probably the most powerful Top Doc in the place for many years. Lord Max was mates with John Harman, Harriet’s dad. UCL/UCH was located very near to the Middlesex Hospital of Gwynne fame and the medical students and Top Docs of UCL/UCH were good friends with those at the Middlesex. There was a lot of traffick and overlap between the two hospitals. Sir Desmond Bonham Carter knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd and Gwynne. As well as being Chairman of UCL, Sir Desmond was also Chairman of one of the RHB’s in the London area.

When Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson was Minister of Health, Sir Desmond Chaired the Bonham Carter Report, which was the result of the Central Health Services Council establishing in 1966 a Committee to review the role of district general hospitals in the NHS.
Sir Desmond Bonham Carter married Diane Madden. A nursing assistant called Kate Madden used to work at the Hergest Unit; she was a criminology postgrad at Bangor University. Kate witnessed violent assaults on patients by staff and the fabrication of evidence with the intention of securing convictions against patients, but Kate the Criminologist said nothing and joined in the party herself when she was told to. I have no idea whether she was related to Sir Desmond’s wife.
Sir Desmond was the son of General Sir Charles Bonham Carter and Gladys Coddington. Sir Charles was educated at Clifton College and then Sandhurst. He was Director-General of the Territorial Army, 1933-36; Governor and Commander-in-Chief of Malta, 1936-40; Aide-de-Camp General to HM King George VI, 1938-41.
General Sir Charles second wife was Gabriele Fisher and their son, Sir Desmond’s half-brother, was Victor Bonham Carter.

Bonham-Carter also served his fellow authors as secretary of the Royal Literary Fund from 1966 to 1982. The Fund, established in 1790, is a charity that aids professional published authors in financial difficulties. In 1967 Bonham-Carter observed: “We mostly try to help the middle-aged or elderly author who has established his name, but perhaps due to ill-health, or the fact that he has passed out of fashion, has fallen on hard times.”

The son of General Sir Charles Bonham-Carter, who was Governor of Malta from 1936 to 1940, Victor Bonham-Carter was born on December 13 1913. He was educated at Winchester and Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he read Modern Languages in Part I (he was fluent in French and German) before switching to Rural Economics for his Part II. His deep interest in rural matters dated from this period in his life.

After a brief period working for The Countryman, in 1937 Bonham-Carter became a director of School Prints Ltd. The idea behind School Prints was to commission talented artists to create original lithographs, which would be editioned in large numbers and sold cheaply to those schools which were adventurous enough to subscribe to the scheme. Thus schoolchildren would be able to enjoy a direct and continuous contact with good works of art.

Bonham-Carter’s gift for languages determined his course during the Second World War. Having joined the Royal Berkshires he was seconded to the Intelligence Corps, and was based at the War Office. There he assessed information gleaned from the Germans, and was occasionally called upon to question PoWs. After the war he returned to School Prints, remaining there until 1960.

But Bonham-Carter’s great energy never allowed him to concentrate on only one path. From 1947 to 1959 he ran a mixed farm in Somerset. He was also invited, in 1951, to become the historian of the Dartington Hall estate, in Devon, established in the 1930s as a social experiment in resuscitating a rural community. His work there led to his book Dartington Hall, written with WB Curry and published in 1958.

Bonham-Carter wrote a number of books about rural matters, including The English Village (1952), a historical survey of the village up to the modern era; Exploring Parish Churches (1959), described by The Daily Telegraph as “a masterly survey of the whole evolution of the parish church”; Farming the Land (1959), a textbook for secondary school children; The Survival of the English Countryside (1971), an analysis of the historical changes in land use which addressed what would now be described as “environmental” issues; Exmoor Writers (1987); and The Essence of Exmoor (1991).

In 1969 Bonham-Carter (who was president of the Exmoor Society from 1975) started a publishing company at Dulverton called Exmoor Press, which produced 50-page booklets, each written by an expert about life on the moor and some of which remain in print. He sold the business in 1989.

In the field of military history he published Soldier True: the life and times of Field-Marshal Sir William Robertson (1965), and Surgeon in the Crimea (1969), a collection of letters written by George Lawson from the Crimean War in 1854-55.

Among his other books, In a Liberal Tradition (1960) is a history of the Bonham-Carter family using documents dating back to the 17th century, and Authors by Profession (volume one 1978, volume two 1984) is a history of authorship. In 1996 he wrote an autobiography, ‘What Countryman, Sir?’ Bonham-Carter’s last publication was ‘A Filthy Barren Ground’ (1998), the edited letters, written in the 1850s, of the Rev William Thornton, first curate of the parish of Exmoor.

Bonham-Carter was also an able scriptwriter. In 1963-64 he produced scripts for the successful BBC television series The Great War. He also wrote scripts for BBC Radio, and was chairman of a radio quiz programme, County Count.

Victor Bonham-Carter had an enormous capacity for hard work. At their farm in Somerset in the late 1940s and early 1950s the family had no electricity; after a full day’s work on the farm, he would retire with a lantern for several hours to devote himself to his writing.

Although uninterested in national politics, he was much concerned with local issues and was an active member, and chairman, of his parish council.

Throughout his life Bonham-Carter was passionate about music. As a young man he had studied piano under Solomon, and at one time Victor’s mother harboured the hope that he would become a concert pianist.

He married first, in 1938, Audrey Stogdon, with whom he had two sons. The marriage was dissolved in 1979, and that year he married secondly Cynthia Sanford, who survives him.

The Bonham-Carters are of course a famous Liberal Party family. Victor lived on Exmoor, which stretches over West Somerset and north Devon. Jeremy Thorpe was the Liberal MP for North Devon and Norman Scott lived on Exmoor. Andrew Newton, the man who said that he had been paid to kill Norman, confronted Norman on Exmoor, shot Norman’s dog Rinka and tried to shoot Norman.

Helen Violet Bonham Carter, Baroness Asquith of Yarnbury, (15 April 1887-19 February 1969), known until her marriage as Violet Asquith, was the daughter of H.H. Asquith, Prime Minister, 1908–1916. Violet Asquith grew up living in 10 Downing Street when her father occupied it and socialising with the key political figures of her day. She was educated at home by governesses and later sent to Paris and Dresden to improve her languages. Her mother, Helen died of when Violet was four. Her stepmother was Margot Tennant. Violet’s best friend when she was young was Venetia Stanley, who had an affair with her father.

H.H. Asquith was PM at the beginning of WW I and then headed a coalition with the Conservative Party, May 1915-December 1916. The Liberal Party split thereafter between followers of Asquith and of David Lloyd George, who had replaced him as Prime Minister. Ronnie Waterhouse was from a prominent Liberal family and his father was active in the Party when it split; Waterhouse’s father supported Lloyd George. Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies, another very good friend of Dafydd and the gang, after an academic career in engineering in London University, retired to north Wales, was a member of Bangor University Council for many years and was part of the Merfyn Out movement. Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies was the son of Richard Humphrey Davies, a prominent Liberal from Corris in Gwynedd. Richard Humphrey Davies served as Private Secretary to Lord Gladstone in the early years of the 20th century, and later worked closely with both Asquith and Lloyd George in the Treasury and then in the Liberal Central Association. See previous posts…

There was also Richard Davies (29 November 1818-27 October 1896), a Welsh businessman and ship-owner who was the Nonconformist Liberal MP for Anglesey, 1868-86. Davies was born at Llangefni on Anglesey and educated at Llangefni national school. When his father set up subsidiary businesses under the management of his three sons, Richard Davies was assigned to the old ferry-terminal of Porthaethwy, now known as Menai Bridge. This timber importing business developed so successfully that all the family became involved and the business developed into large-scale ship-owning which generated considerable wealth, based to a large extent on guano. Richard’s brother, Robert, was renowned as a philanthropist.

Richard Davies was Anglesey’s first Nonconformist J.P. and was High Sheriff of Anglesey in 1858. He retired from the Commons in 1886, being opposed to the proposal for Irish Home Rule. At one time Davies lived at Bwlch-y-fen, but afterwards at Treborth. Richard Davies was a benefactor to Bangor Normal College, a stronghold of Dafydd and the gang (see post (Thought For The Day’) and to the ‘British’ schools. He was appointed  Lord Lieutenant of Anglesey in 1884.

Davies died at Treborth at the age of 77 and was buried in Llandysilio churchyard. Famously his final words are reputed to be “cannot be fathomed”. I know how he felt. A memorial to him is in the Menai Bridge English Presbyterian Church alongside memorials to other members of the family… The Davies’ family was closely associated with this church, it having been built at Robert’s expense.


Violet became a tireless defender of her father and his reputation. She was particularly close to Winston Churchill, a leading member of her father’s (and later Loyd George’s) administration and whom she (successfully) urged her father to promote to the Cabinet in 1908. She was dismayed at his engagement that year to Clementine, whom Violet thought “as stupid as an owl”. In late August, between his engagement and his marriage, Churchill spent a holiday with the Asquith family on the Scottish coast, and later admitted that he had “behaved badly” to Violet, as they were “almost engaged”. Michael Shelden suggests that Churchill’s holiday with Violet may have been the reason for Clementine’s last-minute threat to call off their wedding.

Violet Bonham Carter, Lady Ottoline Morrell, and an unidentified man:

Lady Ottoline Morrell was associated with the Bloomsbury Set and had an interesting sexual relationship with Bertrand Russell, which I was told, involved her giving Russell good thrashings. That info came from the son of one of Gwynne the lobotomist’s Top Doc colleagues, so I presume that it came from a reliable source.


Lady Violet was President of the Women’s Liberal Federation, 1923–25 and 1939–45 and was the first woman to serve as President of the Liberal Party, 1945–47. In 1951 she stood for the winnable seat of Colne Valley. As an old friend, Churchill arranged for the Conservatives to refrain from nominating a candidate for the constituency, giving Violet a clear run against Labour. She was nonetheless narrowly defeated. Violet continued to be a popular and charismatic speaker for Liberal candidates, including for her son-in-law Jo Grimond, her son Mark and the then-rising star Mr Thrope. She was a frequent broadcaster on current affairs programmes on radio and TV. Violet will have known Sir Robin Day, a Liberal and broadcaster, who was a big mate of Ronnie Waterhouse and who shared a flat with Ronnie when they were young.

In the postwar years Violet was an active supporter of the UN and the cause of European Unity, advocating for Britain’s entry into the Common Market.

Violet served as a Governor of the BBC, 1941–46 and a Governor of the Old Vic, 1945–69.

On 21 December 1964, Violet was created a life peer as Baroness Asquith of Yarnbury in the County of Wiltshire, one of the first new Liberal peers in several decades. Sir Peter Morrison’s family seat was in Wiltshire, the Morrisons virtually ran the county. Violet was extremely active in the Lords, so she’ll have known Liberal Chief Whip Lord Frank Byers, Lisa Nandy’s grandfather, who intimidated Norman Scott so badly at the Liberal Party’s investigation into Mr Thrope’s behaviour that Norman walked out and made a police statement. Violet will have known Emlyn Hooson, Liberal MP for Montgomeryshire, a crooked barrister and defender of Dafydd’s gang who grew up in Denbighshire and was a friend of Ronnie Waterhouse. Hooson knew that Mr Thrope was threatening and harassing Norman, professed to be appalled but didn’t do anything to stop him or indeed ever admit to anyone outside of the Liberal Party what Mr Thrope was doing. See previous posts.

Violet died of in 1969 aged 81, and was in turd at St Andrew’s Church, Mells, near Frome, Somerset. Violet married her father’s Principal Private Secretary, Sir Maurice ‘Bongie’ Bonham Carter in 1915.

Sir Maurice Bonham-Carter was the 11th child of Sibella Charlotte (née Norman) and Henry Bonham-Carter. He was born in Kensington and educated at Winchester College and Balliol College, Oxford. Bongie was called to the Bar at Lincoln’s Inn in 1909. Bongie played for Oxford University Cricket Club and also played one first-class match for Kent County Cricket Club.

Bonham-Carter served as the Principal Private Secretary to H.H. Asquith, 1910-1916, during Asquith’s tenure as PM. He travelled around the country with Asquith at the start of WW I and accompanied the PM when he visited the frontline at Ypres in 1915. Bongie also visited Italy and, following the Easter Rising, Ireland with Asquith in 1916. When Asquith was replaced as PM by Lloyd George in 1916, Bonham-Carter moved to become Assistant Secretary of the Ministry of Reconstruction and then, in 1918, joined the  Air Ministry and Road Transport Board.

Bongie became a leading figure in the Liberal Party and was a “keen supporter of new ideas and imaginative personalities.” He was a partner in a firm of stockbrokers and also held a number of business directorships with companies including: Aero Engine Ltd, Alpha Cement Ltd, Earls Court Ltd, Blackburn and General Aircraft, Hanworth Securities Ltd, Scophony Ltd, Power Jets Ltd and was a partner with merchant bankers O.T. Falk and Partners and stockbrokers Buckmaster & Moore.

Bongie died in 1960 aged 79 and is buried in the churchyard at St Andrews Church, Mells.

Bongie and Violet had four children together:

  • Helen, who became Mrs Jasper Ridley, the mother of the economist Sir Adam Riley.
  • Laura, who became Lady Grimond, wife of the Liberal Party leader Jo Grimond.
  • Mark, who became Lord Bonham Carter was the father of Jane, who became Baroness Jane Bonham-Carter.
  • Raymond, the father of the actress Helena Bonham Carter.

Violet’s grandson Sir Adam Nicholas Ridley (born 14 May 1942) was a SPAD to the Chancellors of the Exchequer, Geoffrey Howe and Nigel Lawson, 1979-84.

Geoffrey Howe grew up in south Wales and before he entered the Commons was a barrister on the corrupt Chester and Wales Circuit, along with Emlyn Hooson et al. Howe and his wife Elspeth were very friendly with Ronnie Waterhouse and his wife from young adulthood onward. Elspeth as well as Geoffrey concealed the criminality of Dafydd et al. Howe was Chancellor, 1979-83 and was Chancellor while Sir Peter Morrison was a Lord Commissioner of the Treasury. See previous posts for info on the Howes.

Nigel Lawson was Financial Secretary to the Treasury while Howe was Chancellor and served as the MP for Blaby in Leicestershire, 1974-92. Frank Beck, Greville Janner’s social worker pal who was jailed for the abuse of kids in care in Nov 1991 was elected as a Liberal Party Councillor for Blaby in 1983 and was re-elected in 1987. The paedophile ring in Leicestershire was directly linked to Dafydd’s in north Wales and in 1987-88, Dr James Earp concealed the criminality of Dafydd and the gang, while Lawson was Chancellor. Lawson was still Chancellor when Professor Robert Bluglass concealed Dafydd and the gang’s criminality in July 1989. The Welsh Office under Secretary of State Peter Walker, who knew Dafydd and the gang as long ago as the early 1960s, orchestrated the Bluglass cover-up, by appointing Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Owen to investigate, who then appointed Bluglass to Chair a rigged inquiry. See post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’. By that time, Frank Beck and Greville Janner were under police investigation…

When she was at Oxford, Lawson’s daughter Nigella was involved with the Dangerous Sports Club. By the mid-1980s, the DSC had managed to encounter someone in Somerset who knew what was happening to me at the hands of the gang and who soon found himself in possession of a great deal of money. The DSC seemed to bump into that man in 1985-86 and they were soon all good friends and business partners. See eg. ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’.

Nigel’s son Tom is Headmaster of Eastbourne College, in Sussex, at the location of Dafydd’s partner gang. Many of those who colluded with the gang came from Brighton or Sussex, including Keith Best. Best was a crooked barrister who served as the Tory MP for Anglesey, 1979-87, until he was imprisoned for fraud. Best was the first MP whom I approached – in the summer of 1985 – re the wrongdoing of the gang. Not only did Best collude with them, but I’m sure that Dr Tony Francis got to Best before I did, as soon as Francis realised that I was going to make a complaint. See previous posts…

In 1985 Brown began a PhD at Leicester University, having been turned down by the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies at Birmingham University. Brown received no support at all at Leicester, not even a shared computer in an office. He set himself up at home and did absolutely everything himself, although he was in receipt of an ESRC studentship and Leicester received tuition fees for him. I have been told that Brown was shafted by Prof Stuart Hall and his Hall’s Radical Friends at Birmingham, assisted by Guy Cumberbatch, Brown’s former tutor at Aston, to ensure that Brown ended up alone and unsupported at Leicester, an institution run by Greville’s gang. See eg. ‘Life In Cold Blood’.


Nigel Lawson was born in 1932 to a wealthy Jewish family of stockbrokers, living in Hampstead. His paternal grandfather, Gustav Leibson, was from Latvia and changed his name from Leibson to Lawson in 1925, having become a British citizen in 1911.

Janner and other members of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, including Leo Abse and his friends and family, ruthlessly used the Jewish network to protect themselves. This was an incredibly successful strategy because of the great number of Jewish people in medicine and law. I have stressed many times that the Westminster Paedophile Ring received protection from across the political spectrum because politicians of all hues were involved in it. Eric Hobsbawm was a Jewish Communist who worked for the security services…

The Bonham Carters had numerous links with the Welsh Bloomsbury Set, particularly among left leaning intellectuals, academics and Top Docs. See post ‘The Vermin Club’.

Lawson was educated at Beechwood Park School, near St Albans, followed by Westminster School in London (following in his father’s footsteps) and Christ Church, Oxford, where he read PPE.

It might be difficult to believe now, but people who were at Oxford with Lawson remember an incredibly handsome man who was much swooned over, in much the same way that Gyles Brandreth said of Ann Widdecombe that she was stunningly attractive as a young woman. I only ever saw one photo, but yes, she was, Gyles was not lying, although people fell about laughing when he reminisced about partnering Doris Karloff in The Season.

Lawson carried out his National Service as a Royal Navy officer, during which time he commanded the fast-patrol boat HMS Gay Charger no less.

  • Lawson began his career as a journalist at the ‘Financial Times’ in 1956. He progressed to the positions of City Editor of ‘The Sunday Torygraph’ in 1961 and then Editor of ‘The Spectator’, 1966–1970. Samuel Brittan, brother of Leon Brittan, worked for the Financial Times. In the summer of 1985, the combined forces of Samuel Brittan and Michael Grade attempted to have my friend sacked from her job at the Edinburgh Fringe. That was the summer that Tony Francis et al declared was in earnest and my friend and her family had given me advice. My friend and the man she later married were hounded out of their media careers completely in the early 1990s. See previous posts eg. ‘The Turn Of The Screw’. Various trails lead to Michael Grade, Sir Paul Fox and others.

Peregrine Worsthorne had a very long association with the Sunday Telegraph, as a journo, Assistant Editor and Editor. Perry went to school and university with and worked with stacks of people who concealed or were part of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Worsthorne married Lucinda Lambton, daughter of Lord Lambton, the Tory Minister who resigned from Heath’s Gov’t when he was caught in bed with two call girls enjoying a joint. It was all consenting, but Lord Lambton knew much about other Ugandan discussions involving the Dafydd’s wider gang which did not involve such a degree of free will. See previous posts.

The Editor of The Daily Torygraph, 1974-86, Bill Deedes, was the Tory MP for Ashford in Kent, 1950-74, a Cabinet Minister in Macmillan’s Gov’t and a close personal friend of Denis and Margaret Thatcher. In the 1990s, the local hospital in Ashford was known to be so dangerous that local people refused to go there, they took each other miles out of their way to avoid it. The state of that hospital never received any publicity at all.

Auberon Waugh wrote for the Sunday Torygraph and The Spectator as well of course for ‘Private Eye’. Bron knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s gang, as did everyone else on The Eye. Sir Clough Williams-Ellis’s father-in-law owned and edited The Spectator in when Clough and his wife were young and there have been many more influential people involved with the magazine who were linked to Dafydd et al.


Adam’s grandfather, Sir Jasper Ridley, 1887–1951, was the younger son of Matthew Ridley, 1st Viscount Ridley, Home Secretary in Lord Salisbury’s Gov’t, 1895-1900. Adam’s paternal grandmother was Nathalie von Benckendorff, a daughter of Count Alexander Benckendorff, Russian Ambassador to the Court of St James’s, 1903-17.

Adam Ridley was educated at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford. He graduated in PPE in 1965. After joining the Foreign Office as a civil servant in 1965, Ridley was quickly seconded to the recently established Dept of Economic Affairs, where he remained until 1968. He was a Harkness Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, 1968–69, then returned to the Civil Service. Ridley was with the Treasury, 1970-71, then joined Heath’s new Central Policy Review Staff (or “Think Tank”) and remained there until the change of Gov’t in 1974. Ridley then served for five years as Economic Adviser to the Shadow Cabinets of Heath and Thatch. 

Ridley was a civil servant when Whitehall was colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring because so many mandarins were part of it. See eg. ‘The Naked Civil Servants…’

In 1975, when Thatch wrested the Party leadership from Heath, Adam Ridley was part of her inner circle. Although the Tories were desperate to get rid of Heath, there was not much support for Thatch. One of her key supporters was Sir Peter Morrison. Morrison was one of the first to suggest to her that Thatch ran for the Leadership and played a big role in drumming up support. Morrison’s brother Charles was a big pal of Ted Heath…  Morrison ran Thatch’s unsuccessful Leadership campaign when she was challenged in 1990…

In the summer of 1978, in the expectation of a General Election later that year, a Conservative Party election manifesto was drafted by Adam Ridley and Chris Patten and edited by Angus Maude. Lord Angus Maude was educated as Rugby and Oriel College, Oxford. He became a journalist and author, working on The Times, 1933-4 and The Daily Mail, 1934-9. Maude was the Tory MP for Ealing South, 1950-58 and then for Stratford-on-Avon, 1963-83, succeeding John Profumo in that seat…

Angus Maude was the father of the Tory MP for North Warwickshire, 1988-92 and then for Horsham in Sussex, 1997-2015. Maude was a Minister in Thatcher’s and Major’s Gov’ts, Chairman of the Tory Party, 2005-07 and a Minister in Cameron’s Gov’t. Before becoming an MP, Maude was a barrister who was a member of Inner Temple – along with Mr Thrope and the Havers’ clan who all actively covered up for the Westminster Paedophile Ring – and served as a member of Westminster City Council, 1978-84, while the Council were engaging in illegal practices which resulted in the leader, Shirley Porter, scarpering to Israel to avoid paying millions in a fines and while some of them were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts. Maude was a Westminster Councillor while St George’s Hospital was still located on the Council’s patch and some of the Top Docs at St George’s who were involved with or friends of those involved with the organised abuse facilitated by St George’s were members of the Council.

While in the Shadow Cabinet Maude was accused of hypocrisy by promoting a “family-friendly” image while being the non-executive Chairman of Jubilee Investment Trust plc, which held 21% of American pornographic actress Jill Kelly’s adult DVD business and Chairman of the Mission Marketing Group, which has advertised for WKD drinks and Playboy. Dafydd’s gang were producing porn, including kiddie porn, by coercion. Professor Oliver Brooke at St George’s Hospital was a key figure in a pan-European paedophile ring and trading in child porn.

Francis Maude’s brother, who seems to have disappeared from the wiki entries of Francis and Angus, was gay and quite well-known in the arts. He died from an HIV related condition. It was only after his death that Francis Maude made noises about regretting Section 28 and the homophobia of the Thatcher years. Francis hasn’t yet mentioned regretting ignoring Dafydd’s gang forcing kids in care to work as rent boys and remaining silent when they died from HIV related conditions. See previous posts for more info on Francis Maude and his brother.


In 1979, Adam Ridley became Director of the Conservative Research Dept. Matthew Parris worked in that Dept in the late 1970s and wrote about the prevailing culture of a close knit group of gay men, some of whom Parrish maintained were very predatory and would cruise for much younger men around London. Matthew also mentioned summer holidays in a villa in Italy arranged by the Dept for themselves at which rent boys were supplied for excessive living during the holiday.

Following the 1979 Tory victory Ridley was briefly at No 10, before returning to the Treasury as a SPAD to Howe and then Lawson.

In his memoir Inside the Bank of England, Christopher Dow notes that in 1979 only Ridley was brought into the Treasury as a political adviser and that he was trusted even though he was not a monetarist. Thatch made room for ‘wets’ Ian Gilmour and Peter Walker in her Cabinet because they had info about something that constituted a far greater threat to Thatch than being a Tory wet… See previous posts.

Adam Ridley played a leading part in forming the new Gov’t’s policy favouring privatisation. 

Ridley’s final post in the world of Gov’t was as adviser to the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster for part of 1985; that was Grey Gowrie until Sept 1985, then Tebbit. Both of whom knew all about Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring.

In 1985, the year that I raised my concerns re Dafydd’s gang with Keith Best and the year that Mary Wynch won her appeal to the Master of the Rolls re gaining permission to sue Dafydd and the gang, Ridley was knighted and moved into merchant banking. He was a Director of Hambros Bank and of Hambros PLC, 1985-97 and of Sunday Newspaper Publishing PLC, 1988-90, serving as Chairman in 1990. Ridley was also Chairman of the Lloyd’s of London Names Advisory Committee, 1995–96, then a member of the Council of Lloyds and of the Lloyds Regulatory Board, 1997-99. After leaving Hambros, Ridley was a non-executive Director of Leopold Joseph Holdings, 1997-2004, of Morgan Stanley Bank International, 2006-13 and of Hampden Agencies Ltd, 2007-12 and then of several Equitas insurance companies, 2009-date.

Ridley served on the National Lottery Charities Board, 1994-2000, most of that time as its Deputy Chairman and since 2003 has been a member of the Council of the British School of Athens.

In 1970 Ridley married firstly his second cousin Lady Katherine Asquith, one of the daughters of Julian Asquith, 2nd Earl of Oxford and Asquith, but this ended in divorce in 1976. In 1981, Ridley married secondly Margaret Anne Passmore, and they have three sons. He is a member of the Garrick and the Political Economy Club.

The Garrick is a favourite of lawyers, judges and luvvies. Sir William Mars-Jones, one of Dafydd’s most effective umbrellas, used the Garrick as his sitting room. Ronnie Waterhouse was also a member, as was Robin Day. The Garrick was Dafydd’s London-based fan club.

Adam Ridley was a distant cousin of Thatcher’s Cabinet Minister Nicholas Ridley.


Adam’s wife’s sister, Violet’s daughter, Laura Miranda Grimond (née Bonham-Carter; 13 October 1918-15 February 1994) was a Liberal politician and the wife of the Liberal Party Leader Jo Grimond. Laura was born in Marylebone, London and married Grimond in 1938.

Laura Grimond was Liberal candidate for the West Aberdeenshire division at the 1970 General Election. West Aberdeenshire was a seat the Liberals had gained from the Conservatives at the previous general election. The Liberal victor James Davidson decided not to defend his seat and instead campaigned for Laura. Her prospects of holding the seat lessened when a SNP candidate intervened in the contest and the Tory candidate won. The Tory won again in Feb 1974, although Harold Wilson won the election. Laura didn’t stand as the Liberal candidate; by 1974, Laura’s husband Jo Grimond will have known that Jeremy Thorpe was at high risk of public exposure in the not too distant future.

If Laura Grimond knew the Aberdeenshire area even fairly well, she will have known that for many years, Sir Dugald Baird had been unlawfully aborting masses of babies of low income families. In the 1970s, the sociologist who had worked for Baird when he was conducting his own brand of class genocide was working with Dafydd’s mate Professor Jerry Morris. See previous posts.

Laura continued to be active in the Liberal Party at a national level. From 1983-85 she was President of the Women’s Liberal Federation. Three times during the mid 1980s she appeared as a Party spokesperson on BBC’s Question Time. Where she will have had a good friend:

Robin Day

Laura was also politically active locally in Orkney. She was a Councillor for Firth & Harray and Chairman of Orkney Islands Council’s Housing Committee. In 1968 Laura co-founded the Orkney Heritage Society.

Laura was still alive and busy when Professor Alexis Jay caused the Orkney Satanic Panic in 1991. It was the result of Dafydd’s wider network using distraction techniques and muddying the waters to conceal their own abuse of children, in north Wales and elsewhere. See post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – The Scottish Play’. Laura did not speak out about the madness which resulted in some innocent adult being accused of ludicrous crimes and some children being separated from the families with no warning, in traumatic circumstances for as long as two years, although there was no evidence that they had been abused.


Joseph Grimond, Baron Grimond, (29 July 1913-24 October 1993), known as Jo Grimond, was Leader of the Liberal Party, 1956-67 and again briefly on an interim basis in 1976, after Mr Thrope was obliged to resign. Grimond was a long-term supporter of Scottish home rule. During his leadership, he successfully argued that the Liberal Party support the abolition of Britain’s nuclear arsenal.

Grimond was born in St Andrews, Fife, the town of St Andrews University, which has trained many a Top Doc, including Robert Bluglass. Elite Top Docs often have links with St Andrews even if they weren’t educated there themselves. That is because St Andrews is the home to the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, which is associated with the University and the toppest of Top Docs do like to have a connection to the R&A. Lord Robert Kilpatrick, a Top Doc who was one of the biggest umbrellas for Top Docs who facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s, had strong links to St Andrews and hung out at the R&A. See post ‘Remember Girls – Never Get Into A Car With A Stranger!’

Grimond was educated at Eton and Balliol, where read PPE. He was at school and university with, among others, cricket commentator Brian Johnston and playwright William Douglas-Home, the younger brother of PM Alec Douglas-Home and a cousin of Lord Lambton of the Call Girls and the Joints. Jo Grimond was at Balliol just a couple of years before Heath, Healey and Woy were all there together. Jo Grimond later became a barrister, being admitted to the Bar as a member of Middle Temple, of which Ronnie Waterhouse was a member.

After serving in WW II, Grimond was selected by the Liberal Party to contest Orkney and Shetland. He narrowly missed capturing the seat in 1945 but entered Parliament in 1950 for the constituency. The Liberals and their successors, the Liberal Democrats, have continuously retained the seat to the present day. It is currently held by Alistair Carmichael, who ignored a first hand account of the abuse of Scottish mental health legislation, as well as violence against patients and theft of controlled drugs by staff at Parkhead Hospital in Glasgow some four years ago. See previous posts. Grimond continued to represent the constituency until he retired from politics in 1983.

Norman Lamont was born on Shetland and his father was the islands surgeon. Lamont was part of the Cambridge Mafia, the group of Conservative students at Cambridge who all became part of Thatcher’s Gov’t. Ken Clarke was one of the members. Lamont was the Tory MP for Kingston-upon-Thames, 1972-97. Kingston-upon-Thames was virtually owned and run by Professor Hugh Bentall, who for many years worked as a cardiac surgeon at Hammersmith Hospital. Bentall was involved in research fraud, he received a Chair after one of his colleagues was found dead in mysterious circumstances and after he made a huge financial donation to Hammersmith and he bagged his secretary, who was also his mistress, a place on a degree and then a PhD in anatomy and then wangled her a job as a lecturer. Bentall was part of Dafydd’s network via Bentall’s son Richard, a clinical psychologist who trained and worked with Dafydd’s gang and married the daughter of one of its key members. See previous posts including ‘Interesting Facts’.

St George’s Hospital Medical School merged with Kingston-upon-Thames University in the wake of the cover-up re Professor Oliver Brooke and the gang, but I don’t know why, because the snobbish elites at St George’s certainly wouldn’t have wanted to get into bed with an ex-poly. Ken Clarke knows what was behind it all and it was something to do with Dafydd’s gang, me and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Do tell Ken! Norman Lamont knows as well.


The Party that Grimond inherited commanded barely 2.5% of the vote in 1955. By the time that he left the leadership in 1967, the Liberals had once again become a notable political force. It was during his tenure that the first post-war Liberal revival took place: under Grimond’s leadership, the Liberals doubled their seat tally and won historic by-elections at Torrington in 1958 (won by Mark Bonham Carter, the first by-election gain by the Liberal Party for 29 years), Orpington in 1962 (Eric Lubbock aka Lord Avebury, who knew all about Jeremy Thrope and the rest of the ring, as detailed in previous posts) and Roxburgh, Selkirk and Peebles in 1965 (David Steel, who actively concealed organised abuse, including that of Dafydd’s gang and Cyril Smith, as detailed in previous posts, including ‘Man Of Steel’).

The Liberal Party made idiots of themselves by protecting Mr Thrope in the face of his dreadful conduct because he was their Great Hope. The Liberals were always getting excited when I was growing up, because there was so much disillusionment with the Tories and the Labour Party that the Liberals were usually dreaming of sweeping to power at any moment. The West Country was a Liberal stronghold, until I went to university I was surrounded by the Sir Buftons of the Tory Party and the Liberals. Labour voters were thin on the ground. The family of John Pardoe, the Liberal MP for North Cornwall, 1966-79, – who supported Mr Thrope until Mr Thrope was such a liability that he was unsupportable – were solicitors in Bridgwater and Taunton and John Pardoe’s brother Robin is a farmer in the village in which I lived during my teens.

John Pardoe’s niece Rachel went to school at Dartington Hall, where Bertrand Russell sent his children, as did her brother Simon, Rachel then studied sociology at Sussex and Simon went to Aberystwyth. Simon became a teacher in London and held a senior role in ILEA while ILEA was on board with Dafydd’s gang and were sending kids to children’s homes in north Wales. See previous posts.

At about the time that Dafydd’s gang came after me, there was a substantial fire at Robin Pardoe’s farm. He was a chicken farmer and later switched to pheasants, but the birds were housed in big wooden barns. One of the barns went up and hundreds of birds were roasted alive. No-one could work out how the shed had caught fire, there weren’t any fire risks there and it was attributed to arson. I was later told that somebody had made it known that one of my relatives who used to work for Mr Pardoe had done it. I understand that the fur flew because she definitely had not. Because she hadn’t got on with her workmates I just presumed that someone had attributed even worse behaviour to her, but I’ve received info that the fire and the direction in which the finger of suspicion was pointed was something to do with Dafydd and the gang.

Before I left north Wales I mentioned that I and other people who had crossed the path of the gang were receiving bills, reminders and even County Court Judgements with regard to bills that we had paid. Gwynedd County Council excelled at this, we were all repeatedly sent Council Tax bills that had already been paid, taken to Court for non-payment without our knowledge and then fined and then sent further threats for non-payments of fines. Imagine my surprise when one of the final demands to pay a bill in north Wales that I had paid anyway came from Pardoes, the solicitors firm in Taunton, which was the family business of John Pardoe. I never got to the bottom of it. I’m fairly sure that there was a branch of Pardoes in Bridgwater as well.

Perhaps one or both of these people can enlighten me re that demand:

Jo Grimond appealed to all wings of the Party and was especially popular with the Young Liberals. In 1967, having led the party through three General Elections, Grimond made way for Mr Thrope.

Among other posts, Grimond was a barrister and publisher in the 1930s, an Army Major during WW II, Secretary of the National Trust for Scotland, 1947-49 and held the Rectorships of the University of Edinburgh and the University of Aberdeen and the Chancellorship of the University of Kent, 1970-90.

Upon leaving the Commons Grimond was created a life peer as Baron Grimond on 12 October 1983. He remained devoted to his former parliamentary constituency and was buried on Orkney.

I acquired a biography of Grimond a few weeks ago but I haven’t had time to read it yet. I expect to find out much more about him soon…

Jo Grimond married Laura Bonham Carter in 1938. They had four children:

  • (Joseph) Andrew Grimond (26 March 1939-23 March 1966), a sub-editor of ‘The Scotsman’ who lived in Edinburgh until his suicide at the age of 26. I have not been able to find out anything about Andrew.
  • Grizelda “Gelda” (Jane) Grimond (1942-2017), who had a daughter Katherine (b. 1973) by the film and stage director Tony Richardson. Tony Richardson was married to Vanessa Redgrave, 1962-67. Vanessa was part of the activism that some of the Croesor crowd were involved with and was accused of putting up the money to help Pat Pottle and Michael Randle spring George Blake from prison (see previous posts); Richardson’s wiki entry states that he funded the escape. Richardson was bisexual but never acknowledged it publicly until after he contracted HIV. He died of complications from AIDS in 1991. Richardson came from Shipley in Yorkshire which was Jimmy Savile’s turf and Lord Asa Briggs’ early years turf as well. Richardson and Redgrave’s daughter died in a ski-ing accident in 2009.
  • John (Jasper) Grimond (born October 1946), a former foreign editor of ‘The Economist’ as Johnny Grimond, now writer at large for the publication, who in 1973 married Kate Fleming (b. 1946), elder daughter of the writer Peter Fleming and actress Celia Johnson and who has three children with her.
  • (Thomas) Magnus Grimond (born 13 June 1959), journalist and financial correspondent, married to travel author Laura Grimond (née Raison) and who has four children.


Violet Bonham Carter’s son Mark Raymond Bonham Carter, Baron Bonham-Carter, (11 February 1922-4 September 1994), was educated at Winchester College and Balliol, where he read PPE. His studies were interrupted by WW II and Mark was commissioned in the Grenadier Guards in November 1941. Bonham-Carter concluded the war by standing as the unsuccessful Liberal candidate for Barnstaple in the 1945 General Election, before returning to finish the last year of his course at Oxford. He then spent a year at the University of Chicago before going into publishing, working for the Collins publishing firm but left as his directors did not agree with his political activities.

In 1955, Mark married Leslie, Lady St Just, the former wife of Peter George Grenfell, 2nd Baron St Just (1922–1984) and the younger daughter of American magazine publisher Conde Nast. Mark Bonham-Carter had three daughters with Leslie: Jane, who became Baroness Bonham-Carter of Yarnbury, Virginia and Eliza Bonham Carter. He also had a stepdaughter from his wife’s former marriage.

Bonham Carter stood as the successful Liberal candidate for Torrington in the 1958 by-election, overturning a 9,000 majority, giving the Liberals their first by-election gain since 1929. Bonham-Carter’s margin of victory was just 219 votes. It was a major boost to the Liberals and the first in a string of by-election victories that would make up the postwar Liberal Revival. Although Grimond was personally hopeful that Mark Bonham-Carter would be his designated successor, at the 1959 General Election Mark lost the seat to the Conservatives. He continued to be a close adviser to Grimond throughout the latter’s leadership but would never again be an MP.

Bonham continued to work as a prominent member of the Collins firm, becoming close friends with the Westminster Swinger Woy Jenkins, reportedly Mark’s wife’s lover and serving as his literary agent. Mark became the first Chairman of the Race Relations Board, 1966-71 and its successor, the Community Relations Commission, 1971-77. Mark was one of the Directors of the Royal Opera House, 1958–82, a Governor of the Royal Ballet, 1960–94 (Chairman of the Board after 1985) and Vice-Chairman of the BBC, 1975–80, being vetoed as Chairman by Thatch.

The Chairman of the BBC, 1973-80, was Sir Michael Swann. Swann was appointed by Ted Heath who admired Swann’s ‘strong leadership’ during student protests at Edinburgh University, which were led by one Gordon Brown. Swann was well networked with the Westminster Paedophile Ring, enjoyed a number of university management positions and had links to the Royal Family. Swann was a cell biologist who early in his career had been a zoologist at Edinburgh and then Cambridge. Swann knew some of the biologists at UCNW who were part of Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts.

The DG of the BBC when Bonham Carter was appointed was Sir Charles Curran, who was succeeded as DG by Sir Ian Trethowan in 1977. Curran was perceived to be a puppet of Lord Charles Hill, the BBC Chairman who, as a Secretary of the BMA, was one of those who squeezed Nye Bevan’s knackers so hard during the negotiations to establish the NHS that Bevan made a pay and conditions agreement with the BMA that left the NHS permanently screwed. In return, Hill has been hailed as one of the Selfless Heroes Who Established The NHS. Charles Hill disliked the BBC as much as the BMA disliked the idea of the NHS, which was allegedly why Harold Wilson appointed him as Chairman, to reign in the BBC. No-one has observed in print that Charles Hill and his mates were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring and there was an elite paedophile ring operating at the BBC which was linked with the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts for info on Hill, Curran and Trethowan.


On 21 July 1986 Mark was created a life peer as Baron Bonham-Carterof Yarnbury in the County of Wiltshire. He became Foreign Affairs spokesman for the Liberal Democrats. Bonham Carter’s last campaign focused on granting British citizenship to ethnic minorities in Hong Kong, a measure that was only passed after his death.

Mark Bonham Carter died from a heart attack in Italy on 4 September 1994. Three months after the Headmaster of Bryn Estyn Matt Arnold died of an ‘unspecified blood disease’ and two months after Peter Howarth, his long term colleague and friend, was jailed for abusing boys in care in north Wales. Greville’s mate Frank Beck had died from a heart attack in prison in May 1994. Lord Robert Hunter pegged out from a heart attack in that Birmingham garden in March 1994.

The Indie published an obituary for Mark Bonham Carter, written by Frank Field, who knows a great deal about Dafydd and the gang’s activities (see previous posts.)

TO RECALL the public positions which Mark Bonham Carter filled with distinction is to tell only part of his contribution to public and political life in Britain. He was above everything a political animal, conscious of being the grandson of HH Asquith, Britain’s last Liberal prime minister, and the son of Lady Violet Bonham Carter, the person who, above all, kept alive the spirit of the old Liberal Party during the earlier post-war years. His death on Sunday while holidaying in Italy denies the public stage a gifted player and robs his friends, particularly the younger ones, of a stimulating, ever-encouraging and loyal colleague.

There was never any doubt about Bonham Carter’s liking for younger people. The endless guest-lists to his house tell their own record. But for younger people, particularly politicians, he was a laid-back figure whose war record was one to be recalled with admiration. Events here held the essential paradox which characterised Bonham Carter’s entire life.

Mark Bonham Carter, like his father and grandfather before him, went to Balliol College, Oxford, and then, when the Second World War came, entered the Grenadier Guards. He was taken prisoner and moved to north Italy, but come the fall of the Mussolini regime the opportunity of escape arose for all inmates. Only three disobeyed what was said to be the orders to the British prisoners to stay put. Bonham Carter was one of these. All the remaining prisoners were shot when the advancing German troops reached the camp. Breaking the rules where necessary was only one of Bonham Carter’s unexpected characteristics. Adding to the risks by turning conventional wisdom on its head was another. Instead of heading for the Swiss border Bonham Carter moved south to the British lines and freedom.

This journey was made largely at night and depended usually on the safety of one priest’s house leading to the next. No one who pushed Bonham Carter to recall these events was surprised at his angry outburst when Margaret Thatcher claimed that there was no such thing as society. It was that very web of history, friendship and shared values which provided thesafe route for the young escaping British soldier.

The years out of Parliament were packed with activity. More than two decades were given over to working as a director of the publishing house William Collins. Many an author was the beneficiary of Bonham Carter’s ability for short, massively concentrated bouts of work-reading a manuscript, and trenchantly and constructively commenting upon it. It wasduring these years that Bonham Carter’s range of cultural interests was both developed and enhanced.

His constructive input to public affairs was seen most clearly when Roy Jenkins, the then Home Secretary, appointed him the first chairman of the Race Relations Board. It was due in part to Bonham Carter’s exercise of the opportunities of this office that the Government was led to legislate a stronger legal framework for race relations in Britain. In 1971 he became chairman of the body amalgamating the Race Relations Board and the Community Relations Commission, and what progress has been made in this field is due largely to his efforts, imagination and calm in those early days.

His list of public offices included the vice-chairmanship of the BBC and, from 1958 to 1982, a directorship of the Royal Opera House. Yet the length of the list of his public posts begins to obscure the full impact of Mark Bonham Carter’s personality on public life and conduct. The paradox of being establishment-born but risk-taker extraordinary has been remarked. But Bonham Carter’s true greatness derived from his ability to cope with an array of talents which fitted him for the highest office but which the turn of events denied him.

The political battlefield is littered with politicians angry at the cards fate has dealt them. In many instances bystanders feel that the cards have been not that unduly dealt. Not so with Mark Bonham Carter. Here was someone not merely born to the purple, but showing so many of the qualities which differentiated him from others in public life. His speeches in the Lords on defence and foreign affairs, where he was a Liberal Democrat spokesman, not only have a feel for the great movements in history, but give each individual event its place on the world stage. His lasting contribution to hisparty, probably, was that Liberalism was about an attitude and an approach to politics, not of drawing up shopping lists of policies. To a party wedded to such nostrums as free trade this was no mean feat.

It is with the clash of abilities and the limited range of opportunities offered that Bonham Carter’s character showed its truly outstanding quality. It is not merely that no one could ever have felt the deep frustration that musthave burned inside him at being denied the opportunities of exercising fully his political abilities. Rather it is that he took pleasure not merely in the young, but in encouraging them to try to achieve what he was denied. Never a hint here of the failure to gain a rightful reward. Nor ever a sign of a truly vibrant character turning sour upon itself.

He was, fortunately, given impressive compensations, a wife of equal courage, a stepdaughter and three daughters of his own. His links with young people naturally overlapped with his devotion to his daughters. They were an integral part of his social life. Many a party quest, and particularly at Bussento, where he died, would be involved in the most animated of conversations until dawn was approaching. And then, as guests went to bed, it would be Mark who insisted on beginning a dance. Never can a private face have been so different from what some saw as an acerbic public countenance.

Recently Mark Bonham Carter became a grandfather. The pride of knowing that the great chain of being’s next link had been safely forged was a compensation which turned out to be for him of incalculable value.

A glowing tribute there to the man closely linked in numerous ways to the Westminster Paedophile Ring from Frank. I note that Frank Field remembered that Mark enjoyed the company of young people. Richard Crossman mentions Mark in his ‘Diaries’, on May 29 1968, when Crossman goes out to Brook’s with Woy for gulls’ eggs and claret, where Crossman and Woy gossip about Jim Callaghan and Babs Castle and agree that Babs’s price and incomes policy can’t be sustained. Crossman observes that while he and Woy were dining, ‘at the bar down below were Mark Bonham Carter and other willowy young men’…  A footnote in Crossman’s ‘Diaries’ states that in 1976, Bonham Carter became Chairman of the Outer Circle Policy Unit.

David Lloyd George

Lloyd George was famously known as the old goat because of his enthusiasm for discussing Uganda. Fans of Lloyd George were sensitive to his reputation in this sphere and there is an account of one lady saying that she didn’t want to hear anything about Lloyd George because Mr Asquith was much worse. I can only assume that Asquith was positively Dafydd. Not that Dafydd was PM, he just thought that his status as Europe’s Leading Forensic Psychiatrist was as great.

  • Ma’am Darling, having a rather more enjoyable time on Mustique with Roddy from south Wales:

Ma’am Darling acquired her recreational chemicals from Top Docs Anne and Peter Dally, who were protected and assisted by the corrupt Home Office Drugs Branch mandarin Bing Spear, who also protected and assisted Dafydd.

Mr Thrope with his second wife, who was previously married to Lilibet’s cousin. Mr Thrope found happiness with a Royal relative after the unfortunate death of his first wife Caroline Allpass in a road accident. Mr Thrope was devastated by the death of the lovely Caroline, although Caroline’s death detracted from some difficulties in the Liberal Party and Mr Thrope benefited political from the outpouring of sympathy after he was bereaved. After a decent interval of mourning and the erection of a phallic symbol in memory of Caroline, Mr Thrope fell in love with Royalty yet again.

In 2008 Jane Bonham Carter was reported to be partner of Baron Tim Razzall. Bonham Carter declared the relationship in the House of Lords Register of Interests.

Jane Bonham-Carter was educated at St Paul’s School, Hammersmith and at UCL. Bonham-Carter worked in TV before entering the family business as a Peer, spending time at both the BBC and Channel 4, producing programmes such as PanoramaNewsnight and A Week In Politics. Previous posts have mentioned the many media supporters and associates of Dafydd and the network, including Huw Wheldon, Robin Day, Kirsty Wark…


In 1996, the year that William Hague announced that Ronnie Waterhouse, a member of a well-known Liberal family, would be Chairing a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, Jane became the Liberal Democrats’ Director of Communications, a role she held through the 1997 election before returning to a career in TV as an independent producer at Brook Lapping Productions, where she produced a number of documentaries for Channel 4, the BBC and ITV, including the award-winning series Maggie: the First Lady.

Jimmy Savile visited Bryn Estyn, where one boy alleged that Savile watched him gang raped. Savile also dropped into Ashworth Hospital when he felt like it, an institution run by Dafydd’s gang.
Dr Dafydd Alun Jones


On 23 June 2004 Jane was created Baroness Bonham-Carter of Yarnburyof Yarnbury in the County of Wiltshire and was appointed Lib Dem Spokesperson for Broadcasting and the Arts.

In 2004, Dafydd’s mate the corrupt judge Huw Daniel expected to be able to imprison me after the gang tried to fit me up for threats to kill. Huw became very angry when the case collapsed on the first day of the trial, which was just before Jane became Baroness Jane.

Baroness Jane has been a member of various House of Lords Select Committees, including the BBC Charter Review set up in 2005 and the Parliamentary Communications Committee. That Charter Review was in the wake of the scrap over Hutton etc. Merfyn was one of the BBC Guv’nors at the time and seems to have politely said nothing while Michael Grade, Ruth Deech et al pompoused, insulted him and others and made idiots of themselves. So someone decided that Jane of the Richard Crossman Ring would make a helpful addition to the Select Committee dealing with the matter. The Secretary of State dealing with the Charter Review was of course ex social worker Baroness Tessa Jowell of the Camden Swingers and Traffickers. See previous posts. The Tessa who was the sister-in-law of Dame Barbara Mills, the DPP who colluded with a mountain of institutional corruption, including that relating to the criminality of Dafydd et al in north Wales. See previous posts eg. ‘A Future Leader of the Labour Party?’, ‘The Mrs Mills Experience’ and ‘Theatre of the Absurd’.

After the formation of the Con-Dem coalition government in 2010, Jane was elected Deputy Convenor of Liberal Democrat Peers and was appointed Co-Chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party Committee for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport, which includes the role of Lib Dem spokesperson on DCMS matters in the House of Lords.

Jane Bonham-Carter has served on the Advisory Committee of the think tank Centre Forum since 2005, and RAPT (Rehabilitation for Addicted Prisoners Trust) since 1999.

Here’s Wales’s substance abuse expert:

Celebrity arrests could soar after police discover Jimmy ...


Jane was a Board Member of the National Campaign for the Arts, 2010-12. She is a Vice-President of the Debating Group. On 19 April 2015 it was announced that Bonham-Carter would be a patron of the Studio Theatre, Ashley Road, Salisbury. Salisbury’s most famous former resident is probably Ted Heath, a sour old bugger who lived alone in an enormous house. I marvelled when Ted Heath managed to leave most of his money in his will to himself. I would never have thought that it was possible but Heath did it by leaving a will stating that his fortune had to be used for the purposes of transforming his house into a museum of himself.

Jane Bonham Carter attracted criticism in 2008 when it was revealed that she and her partner, Tim Razzall, had both claimed Lords expenses for a flat that they shared, although it was not claimed that a breach of the rules had occurred. The Lords expenses system was later changed to give peers a flat rate irrespective of their residence.

Edward Timothy Razzall, Baron Razzall (born 12 June 1943) was the son of Humphrey Razzall, a Liberal Party member who stood as Liberal Parliamentary Candidate for Scarborough and Whitby in the 1945 General Election. Scarborough and Whitby was on Savile’s turf and Savile was so ancient that it was even his turf back in 1945.

Razzall attended St Paul’s School, London before going up to Worcester College, Oxford. Lord Asa Briggs was Fellow of Worcester College, Oxford, 1945-55 and Provost of Worcester College, 1976-91.

Razzall qualified as a solicitor in 1969 and worked for Frere Cholmeley (later Frere Cholmeley Bischoff), becoming a partner in 1973 and Chief Executive in 1990, before leaving in 1995 to set up his own corporate finance business (Argonaut Associates).

In 1974 Tim Razzall was elected a Councillor for the London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames, which he represented for 24 years. During that time Tim served as Chair of Richmond Council’s Policy and Resources Committee for 13 years and as Deputy Leader, 1983–96. He was succeeded in both roles by Serge Lourie.

Richmond-upon-Thames Borough Council facilitated a paedophile ring targeting kids in the care of their Social Services. The notorious Elm Guest House which doubled up as a gay brothel staffed by kids in care was close to Richmond-on-Thames. People alleged to have visited Elm Guest house included Leon Brittan and Cyril Smith. Louis Minster, the Director of Social Services for Richmond, was known to be an active paedophile. On one occasion when the police arranged a raid on a property in which kids were thought to be abused, Minster being one of the suspects, they had to notify Richmond Social Services to arrange care for any children that might be found during the raid. The Social Services Shared the information with Minster, who changed his plans. The police raid found no evidence of abuse.

Carole Kasir, co-owner of the Elm Guest House was found dead in 1990. Top Docs attributed her death to suicide. Her friends have always maintained that she was killed. Carol was found dead the summer that the gang made attempts to have me imprisoned on the basis of their perjury in Chester and Cardiff High Courts. See post ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

Alice Levinson, one of the Top Doctors at Springfield Hospital/St George’s nwho was colluding with Dafydd and the gang in 1990-91 later had a private psychotherapy practice at Richmond-upon-Thames.

(Alexander) Serge Lourie (born 22 February 1946) is the former Leader of the Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames, where he was a Councillor, 1982-2010. Serge was Chairman of the UK Housing Trust, Kingston Hospital NHS Trust and Sanctuary Housing Association. He has also been the General Secretary of Help the Aged, an organisation to which many members of Dafydd’s gang have been attracted and a board member of the London Pensions Fund Authority and the Notting Hill Housing Trust.

Lourie was born on 22 February 1946. His mother was Anna Rootchenko. He was educated at St Paul’s School, London and Worcester College, Oxford, 1965-68, graduating in PPE. Lourie qualified as a chartered accountant with Cooper Brothers in 1971 (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) and was a Labour Party member of Westminster City Council, 1971–74 and the Greater London Council, 1973–77, where he was Chair of scrutiny and Vice-Chair of finance.

Margaret Little Nell Hodge worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers when the paedophile ring in the Islington children’s homes which had thrived under Little Nell’s leadership of the Council became too embarrassing even for Little Nell to brazen out. Keith Vaz worked as a solicitor for both Richmond-upon-Thames and Islington Councils, before he set up shop in a Leicester City Council-funded law centre in Leicester. In 1987, after Brown had moved to Leicester to begin his PhD, Keith was elected the MP for the constituency in which Brown lived and by then I as well.

Serge was elected as an SDP-Lib Alliance Councillor for Kew on Richmond-upon-Thames Borough Council in 1982, becoming a Lib Dem following the merger of the SDP and the Liberal Party in 1988. In 1990, he was re-elected as a Liberal Democrat. Lourie spent 14 years as Leader, and also served as Deputy Leader and Leader of the Opposition. He lost his seat in 2010.

In 1989 Serge was awarded a fellowship by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust. From 1990 and 1994 he Chaired the London Boroughs Grants Committee, awarding grants of around £29m to the voluntary sector in London. Serge was a Board member of the London Tourist Board where he deputised for the Chairman, Sir John Egan. He Chaired the Independent Panel on members’ remuneration for the Association of Police Authorities and was a member of the Metropolitan Police Committee.

There is certainly green paint on the Renault in Richmond.

Serge is a board member of Richmond Charities and of Kew Community Trust as well as Chairing Poems in the Waiting Room, a British charity providing poetry cards to Top Docs’ waiting rooms in England and Wales.

Surely this must have been something to do with Poet, Top Doc and facilitator of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, Dannie Abse? See post ‘O Jones, O Jones’.

‘Barley’ (in memory of Dannie Abse) by Gillian Clarke ...

Serge is a Patron of Cultural Co-operation, a charity that runs world music festivals. In 2015, Serge was appointed Chairman of the Charity Appeal Committee of Kingston Hospital to raise £750,000 to improve the treatment of patients with dementia.

Serge lives in Kew, London and is married with two children.

“Je t’aime… moi non plus”
Je t'aime moi non plus by Jane Birkin et Serge Gainsbourg French vinyl Fontana release.jpg
Je t’aime moi non plus
Je t'aime... moi non plus poster.jpg

Plot: The movie is a classic love triangle drama. Frail and love-starved girl Johnny (Jane Birkin) works in a truckstop café in the middle of nowhere. One day enter two gay truckers, manly and worldwise Krassky (Joe Dallesandro) and his lover Padovan (Hugues Quester), young and handsome, but immature and rather a handful. Krassky, tired of taking care of Padovan who keeps getting into trouble, discovers in himself an attraction for this boyish girl, and she falls head over heels for him. They start a relationship; and even if at first Krassky’s body hesitates before the meager feminine graces of curveless Johnny, he ends up being charmed by her naïve and unconditional love. She is ready to accept anything out of love for him, including anal sex, though quite inexperienced at this, so that her screams of pain cause them to be thrown out of several motels… In the end,the back of Krassky’s dirty garbage truck will be the theatre of their union.

‘Don’t Ewe Think I Was Handsome?’

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones


Furiously jealous Padovan however, to win Krassky back, will shrink at nothing, including murder… and at the sight of this passionate jealousy, Krassky returns to his first love and leaves with him, abandoning little skinny Johnny in her café, brokenhearted and lonely again.



In 1986 Tim Razzall he became joint-Treasurer of the Liberal Party and then Treasurer of the newly merged Liberal Democrats in 1988. He was appointed a CBE  in the  1993 New Year Honours and created a life peer on 22 October 1997, 10 months after the Waterhouse Inquiry opened.

In July 2002, Tim was the best man at the marriage of Charles Kennedy, the then Lib Dem Leader, to Sarah Gurling. The Charles who, along with his colleagues, concealed much crap and who developed one hell of a drink problem which was also concealed by his colleagues. See previous posts. Had they been more honest they would have had a chance of saving Charlie Kennedy’s life but why anybody would have considered that when there were so many troughs to dine at and the vain hope that they might find themselves in Gov’t?

From 2000 to 2006, Tim was Chair of the Liberal Democrats’ Campaigns and Communications Committee. Along with Lord Rennard of Sexual Harassment (see post ‘He Knows Where The Bodies Are Buried’), Tim was responsible for running the Liberal Democrats’ election campaigns. Tim stepped down from this post in May 2006. Tim is a former Lords Liberal Democrat Spokesman on Trade and Industry and Treasurer of the All Party Parliamentary Intellectual Property Group. He now serves on various parliamentary committees.

Razzall married first in 1965 (divorced 1974) Elizabeth and they had a daughter, Katie Razzall, the BBC Newsnight reporter and a son James Razzall. The name Kirsty Wark springs to mind once more.

Through his second marriage in 1982 (dissolved 2003) to Deirdre Martineaunee Taylor-Smith, Tim became step-father to her Deirdre’s sons and two daughters. Then in 2008 Tim became the partner of Baroness Jane.

Violet Bonham Carter’s son Raymond (19 June 1929 – 17 January 2004) was educated at St Ronan’s School, Hawkhurst, Winchester College and Magdalen College, Oxford, graduating in 1952. He then went to Harvard. Raymond held senior posts with the Bank of England, 1958–1963, the IMF, 1961–1963, Warburgs, 1963–1977 and with the Civil Service in the Dept of Industry, 1977–1979.

In 1958, he married Elena Propper de Callejón, daughter of Spanish diplomat Eduardo Propper de Callejon (1895–1972) and his Austrian-French Jewish wife, Helene Fould-Springer. Together, they had three children:

  • Edward Bonham Carter (born 24 May 1960), Vice Chairman of fund management group Jupiter Fund Management.
  • Helena Bonham Carter (born 26 May 1966), the actress who is the constant focus of pointless media articles obsessing about her clothes.
  • Thomas Bonham Carter, who manages a corporate governance agency.

In 1979, the Year of Mr Thrope at the Old Bailey and Mary Wynch’s Unlawful Imprisonment, Raymond  was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Ah the doctors they were wonderful and the brain tumour was removed but whoops Raymond was left quadriplegic and blind. Raymond lived until Jan 2004. The Torygraph provided an obituary:

Raymond Bonham Carter, who has died aged 74, was the last surviving child of the indomitable politician and orator Lady Violet Bonham Carter, and the grandson of H H Asquith, the Liberal Prime Minister; he was also the father of the actress Helena Bonham Carter.

A successful banker who became a director of S G Warburg & Co, Bonham Carter’s career was cut short when, in 1979, an operation to remove a benign brain tumour left him quadriplegic and partially blind for theremaining 25 years of his life.

Raymond Henry Bonham Carter was born on June 19 1929, the youngest of two sons and two daughters of Sir Maurice Bonham Carter (Asquith’s private secretary, known to everyone as “Bongie”) and Violet (Asquith’s daughter), who was later created a life peeress as Baroness Asquith of Yarnbury.

Their illustrious political and intellectual heritage was not lost on any of the Bonham Carter children. Cressida, the eldest, became an archaeologist. Mark won Torrington for the Liberals in 1958 and was Chairman of the Race Relations Board. Laura Bonham Carter continued the Liberal tradition bymarrying Jo Grimond, later Lord Grimond, the leader of the Liberal Party from 1956 to 1967.

For Raymond, however, as the youngest child, the lure of politics (and the pressure from his intensely political mother) was not so strong, although he was justly proud of his Asquith ancestry. He was educated at St Ronan’s Preparatory School and then Winchester, after which he did his National Service in the Irish Guards. At Magdalen College, Oxford, he read PPE and was a keen football player. He was also taught by Harry Weldon, who kept a cask of beer outside his study door and would ask undergraduates to bring him a half – and help themselves while they were at it.

Having graduated in 1952, Bonham Carter won a place at Harvard Business School. The rigours of Harvard, as he later recalled in an article for The Daily Telegraph, came as a shock “after the leisurely pace of Oxford”, but his schooling in international business would stand him in good stead. After graduating in 1954, he returned to England to join J Henry Schroder & Co, where he remained until 1958.

That same year Bonham Carter married Elena Propper de Callejon, the daughter of Don Eduardo Propper de Callejon, the then Spanish Ambassador to Norway, and Helene “Bubbles” Propper de Callejon, the artist, writer and cosmopolitan hostess.

Between 1958 and 1963 Bonham Carter was acting adviser to the Bank of England; and from 1961 to 1963 he was an alternate executive director for the UK at the International Monetary Fund and a member of the UK Treasury and Supply Delegation in Washington.

In 1964 he returned to London to join Warburgs. There his international experience and interest in the human, as well as the financial, side of the business generated both respect and affection. He always combinedmeticulous professionalism with courtesy, charm and humour, particularly when giving clients advice which they may not always have welcomed.

After a lengthy period as head of the banking division at Warburgs, in 1977 Bonham Carter was seconded to the civil service, where he was the Director of the Industrial Development Unit at the Department of Industry.

So Bonham Carter was seconded to the Civil Service one year after Harold Wilson’s resignation, as the Jeremy Thrope scandal gathered momentum, under Edmund Dell as Secretary of State.

Edmund Dell was born in London, the son of a Jewish manufacturer. He served in the Royal Artillery in WW II. Dell was educated at Dame Alice Owen’s School and Queen’s College, Oxford, which is where Ioan Bowen Rees studied; Dell was five years older than Ioan. At Oxford, Dell was a member of the Community Party. He studied history, as did Ioan.

Dell began work for ICI in Manchester as an overseas sales manager, specialising in Latin American trade and eventually rose to Vice President of the Plastics Division. He began to find himself in the difficult position of balancing a career in business with Labour politics. Dell was elected to Manchester City Council in 1953 and served for seven years, while the Councillors colluded with the expanding organised abuse ring being run by Dafydd’s mates in Greater Manchester and Salford.

Dell was elected to Parliament as the Labour MP for Birkenhead and retained the seat until 1979, when Frank Field succeeded him in the territory which Dafydd’s partners in crime in Liverpool had long since colonised. Dell served as PPS to Jack Diamond, then as a Minister  under Wedgie Benn at the Ministry of Technology in 1966 and then in the Dept of Economic Affairs under Peter Shore in 1967. All three of these Ministers knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Peter Shore’s wife, Baroness Liz Shore, was a Lady Doctor who held a very senior role as a medical officer in the Civil Service who was helping run the ring. See previous posts. In 1969 Edmund Dell was moved to the Dept of Employment under dear old Babs Castle, which says it all.

Dell became Paymaster General in 1974, then Secretary of State for Trade and President of the Board of Trade, 1976-78, under Jim Callaghan. Dell resigned his seat in 1979, ‘increasingly disillusioned by Labour’s drift to the Left as he moved sharply to the Right’. Readers can probably guess what happened after this display of Principles.

Yes, Dell joined the new SDP  and, after its merger with the Liberals in 1988, he was a member of the Lib Dems. He served as a Trustee of both the SDP and the Liberal Democrats and served as one of SDP’s three representatives during emergency negotiations with the Liberals in January 1988 when it appeared the two parties’ merger might fall through after the failed launch by David Steel and Bob MacLennan of the joint manifesto, Voices and Choices.

After Parliament, Dell was Chairman of Guinness Peat, founding Chairman of Channel 4 and as a Director of Shell Trading. In 1991-2 he was President of the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Dell was married to Susan Gottschalk for 36 years. Dell pegged out in Nov 1999, three months before the publication of the Waterhouse Report.


But in 1979, just before his [Raymond Bonham Carter’s] return to Warburgs, he was diagnosed with a benign brain tumour and underwent a routine operation, from which he was expected to make a full recovery. After complications during surgery, however, he was left severely paralysed.

Bonham Carter bore his disability with remarkable stoicism and courage and, despite an initial prognosis that he would not survive, managed to regain some movement in his arms. Although he had a full-time nurse, his family also helped to care for him, and he had a profound influence on his children, to whom his daily struggles were an inspiration. Helena Bonham Carter continued to live with her parents for many years after she had become a successful actress. Her mother combined looking after herhusband with her work as a psychotherapist.

Bonham Carter’s condition affected neither his intellect nor his power of speech and, having inherited his mother’s precise and inquiring mind, his opinions were always expressed with force and clarity. Before his sight failed completely, he read voraciously, particularly newspapers, and after the onset of blindness he would sit up late into the night listening to the radio.

Latterly he donated numerous family papers to the Bodleian Library in Oxford, and oversaw the publication of a three-volume edition of his mother’s diaries and letters. In the second volume, Champion Redoubtable, Lady Violet wrote of her youngest child: “His temperament is very like Father’s. I have never – except in him – known such stability of keel – such a marvellous ‘temper’ – both intellectual & otherwise – such philosophy and complete lack of introspection, self-pity & irritability.”

Raymond Bonham Carter, who died on January 17, took much delight in his faithful dog, Kes, and his seven grandchildren, the youngest of whom, Billy Raymond, Helena Bonham Carter’s son by the film director Tim Burton, was born three months ago.

His wife, daughter and two sons, Edward and Thomas, survive him.

Raymonds father-in-law Eduardo Propper de Callejón is mainly remembered for having facilitated the escape of thousands of Jews from occupied France during WW II.

Propper de Callejón was First Secretary of the Spanish Embassy in Paris, when France surrendered to Nazi Germany on 20 June 1940. In July 1940, he issued from the Spanish Consulate in Bordeaux, in co-operation with the Portuguese Consul Aristides de Sousa Mendes, more than 30,000 transit visas to Jews, so that they could cross Spain to reach Portugal. When Spain’s Foreign Minister learnt that Propper de Callejón was issuing visas without prior authorization, he had him transferred to the Consulate of Larache in Moracco. Afterwards, Eduardo was posted to Rabat, Zurich, Washington DC, Ottawa and Oslo.

Propper de Callejón’s father was a Bohemian Jew and his mother was a Spanish Catholic. His wife, Hélène Fould-Springer, was a socialite and painter. She was from a notable Jewish French-Austrian banking family and converted to Catholicism after WW II. Her sister was Paris art patron and philanthropist Liliane de Rothschild (1916–2003) of those Rothschilds.

Eduardo didn’t gain public recognition for his heroic acts until after his death in 1972 in London, following an operation. In 2008, he was officially recognised as a Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem, the Holocaust remembrance authority in Israel.


Raymond’s daughter Helena was born in Islington. Her mother, Elena is a psychotherapist. Helena and her brothers were brought up in Golders Green and she was educated at South Hampstead High School and completed her A levels at Westminster School. Helena was denied admission to King’s College, Cambridge, not because of her academic performance but because college officials were afraid that she would leave during the course to pursue her acting career.

When Helena was five, her mother had a serious nervous breakdown, from which it took her three years to recover. Upon her recovery, her experience in therapy led her to become a psychotherapist herself. Five years after her mother’s recovery, her father was clobbered badly after the complications during that operation. With her brothers at college, Helena was left to help her mother cope.

Helena famously received no formal acting training, but was nonetheless given a break in 1979, the Year Of Jeremy, Mary Wynch and Helena’s dad being left completely fucked after the ah doctors they were wonderful found that the scalpel slipped and soon became a very successful actress.

In 1994, Helena met Kenneth Branagh and they began an affair, while Branagh was still married to Emma Thompson, whom he had met in 1987 and married in 1989.

The vile research assistant Mandy Leigh who worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School and played the role of School Bully for Dr Cathy Wilson and the other senior staff who were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring there (see previous posts) knew Kenneth Branagh and in 1989 was in hot pursuit of him and seriously pissed off that he was on the verge of getting hitched to Emma. Never mind Mandy, you were on a much higher salary than everyone else because of that fiddle that had been done with the Wellcome, you had sex with the appalling Top Doctor Richard Penketh in the lab during work hours while Penketh told you how much he wanted to shag everyone else in the Dept as well and you were a paid-up member of the gang who forced me out of my job because I wouldn’t keep quiet about what Dafydd et al were doing in north Wales.

Mandy’s father was a retired civil servant – so he knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring before his daughter went to work for the people who had run it as Nice Young Doctors – and her brother Charles was a banker. The corrupt MSF rep David Hole at St George’s was very angry when he found out that Charles Leigh’s bonus was bigger than Hole’s annual salary. Nonetheless Hole obtained a nice little number at St George’s by keeping a lid on the criminality and wrongdoing there, managed to purchase a house in Wandsworth that ended up being worth a great deal of money and busied himself as an SDP Councillor in Wandsworth, the Council that was running the Westminster Paedophile Ring along with St George’s.

Donald Naismith, the Director of Education for Wandsworth, was known to be an active paedophile. David Hole came from Minehead and by the time that I had arrived to begin work at St George’s, he had gone right through my CV and made a careful note of my former addresses, educational institutions, jobs etc and I have now been told that he networked with as many people who knew me as he could who were also concealing serious criminal activity…

Jeremy appeared at Minehead Magistrates Court to be committed for trial at the Old Bailey:

1965 Jeremy Thorpe.jpg


Former SBS officer and James Bond character Paddy turned up in Somerset after that business with Mr Thrope at Minehead and the Old Bailey with an unlikely story of having been made redundant and thus he relocated from Geneva to the West Country in search of a job as a youth worker, only to find himself elected as the Liberal MP for Yeovil in 1983. I can see the logic in the security services sending Paddy to the region in the face of Mr Thrope’s activities, but I would have thought that the point of Paddy et al was to put a stop to the Westminster Paedophile Ring, not to collude with it.


Emma Thompson’s own background is similar to Helena’s, ie. Hampstead and luvvie. Emma’s mum was Scottish actress Phyllida Law and her dad was Eric Thompson who did the ‘Magic Roundabout’, while no-one knew about Jimmy Savile or the elite paedophile ring at the BBC. Emma went to Camden High School for Girls along with Julia Hobsbawm and Gordon Brown’s wife and then Newnham College Cambridge, where Emma joined Footlights, had a relationship with Stephen Fry and was friends with many of the other budding stars who also knew my two media friends who were shafted by the gang for daring to support me in the face of Dafydd et al.

Stephen Fry of Celebrity Manic Depression – although the latest diagnosis has confirmed that Fry doesn’t have manic depression after all, having pissed off a lot of people who do have manic depression by making those TV programmes which were not that truthful with regard to the Help on offer from the Top Doctors, just when Dafydd and the gang found themselves in need of a bit of good PR once more – has revealed that at Cambridge, Emma was known as Emma Talented, rather than Emma who’s dad had the shit on everyone and you really don’t want it being made public do you, you know Emma would SOOOO like to be an actress and we think that she’s Talented and the School Agrees!

In 1982, as Mary Wynch’s solicitors Birnberg & Co in Camden began legal action against Dafydd and the gang, Emma’s dad died as a result of circulatory problems at the age of just 52. Emma has commented that this “tore [the family] to pieces” and “I can’t begin to tell you how much I regret his not being around”. She added, “At the same time, it’s possible that were he still alive I might never have had the space or courage to do what I’ve done … I have a definite feeling of inheriting space. And power.” Although Emma does now know how Fings Break when the Top Docs become anxious.

    • Here’s Emma Talented Thompson (far left and on screen) speaking at the World Economic Forum in 2008:

Emma with the award she was given during the ‘Presentation of the Crystal Award’ at the Annual Meeting 2008 of the World Economic Forum in Davos, in January 2008:

Following Kenneth’s Branagh’s affair with Helena Bonham Carter, Kenneth and Emma divorced in 1995. Emma developed clinical depression, but while while filming Sense and Sensibility in 1995, she began a relationship with her co-star Greg Wise. Commenting on how she was able to overcome her depression, Emma told Radio 4 “Work saved me and Greg saved me. He picked up the pieces and put them together again.” The couple had a daughter, Gaia, a pregnancy that was achieved through IVF treatment when Thompson was 39.

I absolutely would not wish Dafydd and the gang on Emma, but it would have been so nice if Emma had not kept quiet about this absolute barrel of shit while her friends and colleagues destroyed the lives and careers of my friends and I.

Emma and Greg’s permanent residence is in Hampstead, but they spend a lot of time in Scotland and Emma has declared that she feels Scottish. I don’t expect that they stay in a Travelodge when they are in Scotland. Although I wouldn’t either because they are quite expensive for such soulless dreadful places.

In 2003, Talented Scottish Emma did what all luvvies who also Care enough to speak at Davos do and acquired a Black Orphan, in Emma’s case a Rwandan former child soldier, named Tindyebwa Agaba. They met at a Refugee Council event when he was 16 and Emma invited him to spend Christmas at their home. “Slowly”, Thompson has commented, “he became a sort of permanent fixture, came on holiday to Scotland with us, became part of the family.” Agaba became a British citizen in 2009. Agaba is no doubt grateful which is fine but er Emma, there were many other people suffering and you um have given the friends and associates of a gang of traffickers who murdered witnesses a bit of good PR which made it so much easier for them to denounce the rest of us as lying criminals.

Emma became Dame Emma in 2018.I found out about this the other day when I was reading ‘Hello!’ or something dreadful in the dentists. Emma explained that she doesn’t believe in honours but she decided that she’d accept it anyway, because it’s a nice little badge to add to all of the others and there was a nice pic of her at the Palace. Which could be viewed as doing as much damage to the Royal Family as Carlo’s friend Stephen Fry did when he boasted about snorting coke in Buck House. If Stephen the Not Manic Depressive Any More and Emma Scottish and Talented are part of a Cunning Plan to undermine the Establishment from within, I appreciate the sentiment but it isn’t working. Stephen, Emma and I might be bright enough to have a good laugh at it, but the Top Docs are still withdrawing healthcare from anyone who spills the pints of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and it is Stephen and Emma’s links with the Royals and bankers and the Celebs who do Good Works that is keeping the show on the road.

What we really needed Emma and Stephen was a bit of help in 1986 when we could have exposed the Westminster Paedophile Ring before our friends were murdered and we were fitted up for criminal offences…

In Dec 1986, Oliver Brooke, the Professor of Paediatrics at St George’s, was jailed for the possession of child porn. Ollie was released on appeal when  Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane cut his sentence and compared Ollie’s vast collection of child porn, which occupied the cupboards of his office in St George’s, with a collection of cigarette cards. Ollie’s Top Doctors friends wrote to the Court explaining that Ollie never meant no harm and he was a lovely bloke really. Ollie was the key figure in a pan-European paedophile ring. See post ‘Oliver!’ His mates at St George’s remained in post facilitating the ring. One of Ollie’s friends was Mandy Leigh’s boss, Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain. Chamberlain was also involved in large scale research fraud and as a young Top Doctor had conducted experiments on live late gestation foetuses whom he had unlawfully aborted and then killed when the experiments were over. See post ‘Now Then…’
Chamberlain was mates with the Royal Gynaecologist Sir George Pinker. See post ‘Wimmin’s Wellbeing – the Fortnum and Mason Connection’. Chamberlain had a Wimpole Street practice with rich celebs as patients, one of whom was Cilla. I feel OK about publicising this, because Cilla was a mate of Chamberlain’s as well as his patient and gave interviews to the media about what a good bloke Chamberlain was. I knew when I worked at St George’s that Cilla was his patient and knew them all down there but Cilla only made it public after Chamberlain and his colleague Malcolm Pearce had been exposed in a research fraud scandal. Which was followed by another scandal in their Dept. Then another scandal in the same Dept. By that time the Waterhouse Inquiry was underway and then in 2000, the year that the Waterhouse Report was published, Chamberlain retired from the NHS, moved to south Wales and took up a lecturing job in the history of medicine at Swansea University. He used to tell everyone that he’d never leave London because Harrod’s was the only place where one could find a decent barber, so I wonder how he was tempted over to the University of Rhodri Morgan’s Family.
Surprise, Surprise! Here’s Cilla in the Daily Mail and Cilla on Desert Island Discs, extolling the virtues of Geoffrey Chamberlain…
Cilla Black kept her love for Scottie Road even when she ...
  • Chamberlain’s son was a business partner of Wayne Hemingway of ‘Red Or Dead’ shoe shop fame and Chamberlain ensured that he advertised Red or Dead whenever he could, by mentioning his Rebel Son who wasn’t a Top Doctor tch tch.

Helena Bonham Carter has or had her own fashion line. As of course has Stella McCartney, daughter of Paul McCartney. Paul was a mate of Cilla’s back in Liverpool in the 1960s when Dafydd and the gang found business beginning to boom because of the appetite of Stars for young sex workers and drugs. The McCartneys used to be neighbours of Ronnie Waterhouse’s in St John’s Wood. Brian Epstein, the Beatles’ manager, was gay, used rent boys and recreational chemicals and died in Aug 1967 in questionable circumstances where the Beatles were over in Bangor, at the Bangor Normal College no less, doing their bit with that guru. See previous posts for further details and the many McCartney/Beatles links to Dafydd’s network.

In 1999, after five years together, Helena and Kenneth Branagh also separated. In 2001, Helena began a relationship with American film director Tim Burton. Helena and Tim lived in two adjoining houses in Belsize Park, London. Graham Chapman of Python fame lived in Belsize Park. Chapman abused teenaged boys for years and this was an open secret. Chapman and his partner adopted a 13 year old runaway from Liverpool but told everyone that he was 17. When Chapman first adopted this boy he was interviewed by the police who were a little concerned what with Chapman being an ‘omosexual – no-one used the word ‘paedophile’ outside forensic psychiatry circles in those days – but Chapman reminded the plod that he was a Top Doc and indeed this was a case of
  • Catherine Tate Quotes. QuotesGram
Chapman was indeed a Top Doc, he qualified at Barts but only practised for a few months before becoming a full-time luvvie, having been introduced to that world via Footlights when he was at Cambridge. Barts had facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring for years, stretching back at least to the days when Lady Juliet Bingley’s dad Reginald Vick was a surgeon there. Things were helped considerably with the arrival of Anthony Clare as Prof of Psychological Medicine at Barts and when Clare departed, Dafydd’s mate Linford Rees was appointed to that position, in 1996, the year that William Hague announced the forthcoming Waterhouse Inquiry. Linford and his wife were from south Wales and Linford’s daughter was the 1970s Poldark star, Angharad Rees. Angharad was married to Christopher Cazenove who’s brother was an officer in one of those posh regiments associated with Buck House duties rather than fighting wars. Christopher hit the big time when he became one of the stars of ‘Dynasty’. He died as a result of what sounded to me very much like an HIV related illness or a condition which resulted from the use of a contaminated needle, Angharad died at a not very great age from cancer and one of their sons was killed in a road accident in circumstances which no-one could explain. See post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ for further details.
Jonathan Frappell, one of the Top Docs who worked in Chamberlain’s Dept at St George’s, was married to a former Angel from Barts. She wasn’t very popular because she was rude and insulting to junior docs and often refused to even speak to them on the grounds that she was married to a senior doc herself. The junior docs resented this intensely and referred to ‘the airhead of a Barts nurse who shagged and bagged a doctor’. Presumably Jonathan was working at the Barts of the Ring at the time. Jonathan subsequently was appointed as a consultant in Plymouth and also has a medico-legal practice. See previous posts.
In 2006, Helena and Tim bought the Mill House in Sutton Courtenay, near Didcot in Oxfordshire. It was previously leased by Helena’s grandmother, Violet and owned by her great-grandfather  H.H. Asquith. Helena and Burton have two children together. Helena told  The Torygraph and several other interviewers of her struggles with infertility and the difficulties that she had during her pregnancies. She noted that before the conception of her daughter, she and Burton had been trying for a baby for two years and although they conceived naturally, they were considering IVF.
After Brown and I began publishing about the mental health services from 2004-05 onward, I was struck by how many celebs began talking of how they had IVF, even those whom, it transpired had conceived naturally. I was a bit puzzled by this because although IVF had become big business by then and people were using it, the success rates were low, the business practices unscrupulous and there was much patient dissatisfaction, which was not appearing anywhere in the media. I knew what went on in fertility clinics because I worked in the St George’s one and I knew other people who worked in other fertility clinics at the time and it was not a pretty sight. Then I realised that all these celebs talking of the wonderful ways of IVF were linked into Dafydd’s network. Dafydd et al knew that I used to work in fertility and they knew what I would have found out about.
Did anyone at all in 2004-05 apart from my old buddies like Brown know that I still remembered the scams and bad practice that I witnessed in fertility clinics? One person did; Merfyn, the VC of Bangor University at that time. I’d had a conversation with Merfyn re societal changes during the 1960s and Merfyn of course discussed the contraceptive pill. After the interview – which is what it was, I interviewed Merfyn while I was doing my PhD, as part of a group of people who grew up in Welsh speaking rural Wales and who then moved into careers in public life – I e mailed him to say thanks and I mentioned that I used to work in a fertility clinic years ago and although what was happening in fertility was scientifically amazing, fraud and bad practice was rampant and resources would probably be better invested in other ways. I did not mention any names or breach confidence.
Previous posts have mentioned that by 2004-05 the paedophiles’ friends were trying to force Merfyn out of his job and indeed out of public life altogether, because his late wife Nerys had Challenged The Paedophiles, then Merfyn’s friend, a junior Gov’t Minister had cleared my name after the gang had tried to have me struck off the teaching register and to add fuel to the fire, Merfyn gave me a place to do a PhD in Bangor University.
I have detailed how John McTernan’s brother-in-law stole my computer in 2005, how documents were stolen from my car, how boxes of documents relating to me, F and our battles with those we know and love were stolen from my property and how a box of all the old letters that Brown and I had written to each other when we were young had been stolen. I have in previous posts and comments mentioned that Sue Collick, Merfyn’s PA, accessed Merfyn’s inbox, even the messages that she knew that she was not entitled to read and that she was passing info on. I have also mentioned in previous comments that Andrew Harrison, an undercover officer, registered as a law student at Bangor and harvested staff passwords in order to access staff e mail accounts. Andrew’s ultimate ambition was to hack into Merfyn’s computer. I raised the matter with IT and admin at Bangor University only to be ignored.

Well paedophiles’ friends in Gov’t and the media, I do hope that you enjoyed yourselves reading my e mails and documents. And of course that you found the contents of Merfyn’s computer as interesting. Perhaps Helena of CAMDEN GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL, which was also attended by Julia Hobsbawm and Gordon Brown’s wife Sarah, could now let me know who told her and others to make those vacuous comments about IVF, lest Brown and I began to publish on wrongdoing in the field as well. Whoever read all those confidential documents and e mails will have read the details of the serious criminal offences on the part of Top Docs and others towards me and others. Patients died as a result.

In 2008, Merfyn’s wife Nerys died at the hands of Dafydd’s mates at the Walton Centre. She couldn’t even rest in peace in Llanfaglan Church without Lord Snowdon Of Belgravia Throughout His Entire Life arriving there after he’d died.

But at least Helena is a Star!

In 2013 Merfyn resigned as the Chair of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board after a spate of patient deaths resulting from hospital acquired infections. The Top Docs and others witheld crucial information from Merfyn and the Board, so Merfyn was not able to make the decisions necessary, would find himself at the centre of a scandal and would be forced to resign. I knew about the conspiracy because I was told; well the person concerned screamed it at me, rather than told me. Just as I knew about the conspiracy to force Merfyn out of his job as VC of Bangor University by a huge co-ordinated conspiracy of non-co-operation on the part of staff who were paedophiles’ friends. See posts ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’.

Helena was made a CBE in the 2012 New Years Honours list for services to drama and in January 2014, the PM, Call Me Dave, announced that Helena had been appointed to Britain’s new national Holocaust Commission. Are we talking the Holocaust in Central Europe or Holocaust in north Wales Dave, the Holocaust which in 2014 was the subject of yet another cover-up by Lady Julia Macur?

On 23 December 2014, Helena and Tim announced that they had “separated amicably” earlier that year.

Various Daily Mailesque ‘reports’ consisting of nothing but photos of famous people hugging and kissing each other have reported on the friendship between Helena and Ruby Wax. Ruby has been one of the cheerleaders for Mindfulness, the fraud perpetrated by Dafydd’s former colleague Prof Mark Williams, when Mark worked with the gang in Bangor in the late 1980s. Ruby became a source of PR for the gang after she purchased an Masters in Mindfulness from Oxford, but they told her that it was a Masters in ‘Brain Science’. That enabled Ruby to become an Expert and she was soon rewarded with a Chair in Psychiatric Nursing at the University of Surrey shortly after Operation Pallial re-opened the investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and about the time that Mark Williams former colleague Tony Francis who recommended Mindfulness to a great many people killed himself. Ruby bagging that Chair was extraordinary but having said that, Ruby cannot do more damage as a Professor of Nursing than Fiona Irvine and Chris Burton. See previous posts for info on Ruby, Fiona and Chris…


There is a never ending supply of Bonham Carters. Meet a distant relative of Helena’s:

Sir Stuart Bonham Carter
Arrival of Powerful American Task Force To Operate With Home Fleet. 3 and 4 April 1942, on Board HMS Edinburgh, in Mid-atlantic. the Task Force Is Under the Command of Rear Admiral R G Griffen. A9241.jpg

Vice Admiral Bonham-Carter on the bridge of HMS Edinburgh, 1942
Born 9 July 1889 Portsmouth, Hampshire
Died 5 September 1972 (aged 83), Petersfield, Hampshire
Years of service 1904–1945

Vice Admiral Sir Stuart Sumner Bonham Carter, (9 July 1889-5 September 1972) joined the Royal Navy in 1904 and served in WW I as the commander of HMS Intrepid and then HMS Shark. A keen cricketer, he played for the Royal Navy Cricket Club. Sir Stuart was appointed Chief of Staff to the Commander-in-Chief, Africa Station in 1928 and made Assistant Director for Navy Equipment in 1932 before becoming Chief Staff Officer to the Commander of the 1st Cruiser Squadron in 1934. Sir Stuart was given command of the Royal Naval Barracks at Chatham in 1937 and made Naval Secretary in 1939.

Sir Stuart also served in WW II commanding the 3rd Battle Squadron from 1940 and the 18th Cruiser Squadron from 1942. He was made Flag Officer, Malta in 1942 and retired due to ill health in 1943, although he was recalled in 1944 to lead Naval Convoys. In 1933 he married Eve Lloyd; they had one child, Joanna. He is distant relative of Helena Bonham Carter.

One of the people who played a huge part in Richard Crossman’s life when Crossman ran the DHSS for the benefit of the Westminster Paedophile Ring was Tommy Balogh. Balogh was a personal friend of Crossman and Crossman rated his advice, so much so that Crossman spent much time drawing up questionable strategies which would keep Balogh at the heart of Gov’t and enable him to have access to restricted material when Harold Wilson removed Balogh from various roles. Crossman’s ‘Diaries’ detail it all, how Wilson knows what Crossman is up to and explicitly warns him that Tommy is not be given access to certain material or invited to certain meetings. Richard Crossman comes up with the plan to trump all others; if Tommy is given a peerage that will overcome the obstacles that are being placed in his way…
Balogh was indeed given a peerage, but I’m not sure exactly how Crossman twisted Wilson’s arm, although I can guess. Balogh was obviously crucial to the running of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and so were both the people to whom he was married.

Tamás (Thomas) Balogh, Baron Balogh (2 November 1905-20 January 1985) was an economist who was ‘an adviser to Harold Wilson’s Gov’t’. The elder son of a wealthy Budapest Jewish family (his father was head of public transport, his mother the daughter of a Professor), Balogh studied at the city Gymnasium, considered ‘the Eton of Hungarian youth’, then at the universities of Budapest and Berlin. He took a two year research position at Harvard as a Rockefeller Fellow in 1928. Following this, Balogh worked in banking in Paris, Berlin and Washington before coming to England.

After getting British citizenship in 1938, Balogh became a lecturer at Balliol College and was elected to a Fellowship in 1945, then became Reader in 1960. He was also the economic correspondent for the ‘New Statesman’, an economic adviser to Wilson’s Cabinet office following the 1964 Labour Party victory and member of the Secretariat of the League of Nations.

As an adviser in the Cabinet Office, Balogh was a critic of consumption and profit-orientated tax policies, arguing that “profit can be earned not merely by satisfying long felt wants more efficiently and in a better fashion, but also by creating new wants through artificially engendered satisfaction and the suggestion of status symbols”, maintaining that nationalisation was a better means of securing wage restraint and a more equitable tax system as a whole. Balogh was opposed to Britain’s entry of the EEC.

Any readers feeling inadequate today because their neighbour has a better car than them? I had no idea that the materialistic crap that Brown and I spent so much of our young lives fighting was invented by a friend of Dafydd’s gang. No wonder Dafydd’s fan club used to stress that Dafydd had lots of money, a Merc and aeroplanes.

On with the revolution!

The ‘Sussex academic’ website mentions Tommy Balogh and plugs a book about him, ‘The Life and Times of Thomas Balogh, A Macaw Among Mandarins’.

Thomas Balogh (1905–1985) had a conspiratorial nature and deliberately kept to the shadows so that his substantial role in political life has been little known. His predictions were usually right and he looked at economic and political issues from unconventional angles, but he was an exasperating man who thrived on controversy. He made many enemies and had numerous fallings-out, especially with civil servants, and this affected the way his advice was perceived.

This first and only biography covers his life and work: from his youth in Budapest, to his coming to Britain in 1930 and being taken up by Keynes; his advance to being a well known if highly controversial political economist; his reputation as a brilliant though eccentric don at Balliol College, Oxford; his burgeoning interest in politics; and the time of his greatest influence as economic adviser to his close friend Harold Wilson.

Balogh’s interests in North Sea Oil and Gas exploitation and his criticism of governmental failure to exact higher revenue from the oil companies is documented and the analysis is a counterbalance to the official history. June Morris’s interpretation of Balogh’s relationship with Harold Wilson and Marcia Williams and, more particularly and perhaps more controversially, the relationship between Wilson and Williams, does not match those contained in the memoirs of Bernard Donoughue and Joe Haines. And there are correctives to some of the myths surrounding Wilson’s leadership of the Labour Party and his Prime Ministership.

He was married twice: firstly in 1945 to Penelope Noel Mary Ingram Tower (daughter of Rev. Henry Bernard Tower, Vicar of Swinbrook, Oxfordshire, and widow of Oliver Gatty [1907-1940], a Balliol Fellow, by whom she had a daughter, Tirril), a psychotherapist, with whom he had two sons and a daughter; secondly in 1970 to Catherine (née Storr), a psychologist.

 Penelope Balogh wrote ‘Freud, A Biographical Introduction’ in 1972; and also a volume entitled ‘Up With the Joneses’ in 1965. Sir Clough’s wife’s relatives the analysts James and Alix Strachey were the British authorities on Freud (see post ‘The Vermin Club’) and Penny Balogh will have known them and their friends.
Penny Balogh gets a mention on the AGIP (Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy) website:
History of AGIP:

In the late 1960s, there was dissatisfaction amongst some reflective psychoanalytic psychotherapists over current practice, including the rigid divisions then operating between psychoanalytic schools. Penelope Balogh became interested in what the ‘new therapies’ coming from the USA might offer traditional models. Her active enquiry in this area was considered inappropriate by the then Association of Psychotherapists (now BAP) of which she was a founder member. Following debate, she withdrew to work with Joshua Bierer at the British Association of Social Psychiatry (BASP) to create an inclusive training. Other therapists joined her there. This group was subsequently evicted for being ‘too analytic’; whereupon it expanded and formed a weekly training seminar under the auspices of Professor Pond of the London Hospital.

Desmond Pond was one of the key movers and shakers in the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Sir Dessie didn’t just see the patients on the wards and in the clinics, Sir Des came up with all sorts of innovations for Poor People to be told that they couldn’t look after their own kids and thus the kids should be given to Dafydd’s gang to look after; assessment centres, therapy units, residential units so the targets could be scrutinised 24 hrs a day for weeks just to ensure that they will never pass the ‘normal person’ test.

Sir Desmond Arthur Pond (2 September 1919-29 June 1986) was educated at the John Lyon School in Harrow and at St Olave’s Grammar School in Orpington in Kent. He graduated from Clare College, Cambridge and trained as a Top Doc at UCH and at Duke University School of Medicine, North Carolina. From 1948 to 1952 Des was Senior Lecturer in the Department of Neurophysiology at the Maudsley. From 1952 to 1966 he was consultant psychiatrist at Maudsley and UCH. Dafydd ‘trained’ at the Maudsley during that time, while the Top Docs at the Maudsley, including Dafydd’s boss Dr Bob Hobson, were running a big sex abuse ring under the umbrella of community psychiatry and therapy, which was Des’s speciality as well.

In 1966 Des was appointed the first Professor of Psychiatry at the London Hospital. The London Hospital serves Tower Hamlets and Dafydd’s partner gang were running the ring down there. Wendy Savage, the Labour supporting Feminist Top Doc, trained and worked at the London Hospital and her patients were the victims of Dafydd’s gang; Wendy performed as many as 14 or 15 abortions on some of them, explaining to the world that she was dealing with chaotic, dysfunctional, personality disordered women who Made Bad Choices, rather than the targets of a ruthless criminal gang. Wendy was a pal of Geoffrey Chamberlain the facilitator of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See post ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends’. Lord Bob Winston trained at the London Hospital and he too knew what Chamberlain, Savage and Dafydd’s gang were doing. See previous posts.

Desmond Pond was a founder member of the Institute of Religion and Medicine in 1964. His efforts helped to ‘establish the role of psychiatry in general practice and his contributions were recognised by the award of honorary Fellowship of the Royal College of General Practitioners’.

Pond served on the Neurosciences Board of the MRC, 1968-72 and President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, 1978-81, while Dafydd and the gang had illegally imprisoned Mary Wynch. Pond was knighted in 1981. Pond served as Chief Scientist at the DHSS, 1982-85. Which was when I was first propositioned by Gwynne and Brown and I were repeatedly threatened by the gang…

Pond married physician Helen Jordan and the couple had three daughters. Pond died of cancer, in Torquay, in 1986. See previous posts for further info on Pond…

Here’s a man in Torquay who found a dead body, tried to conceal it and ended up in a mess from which he could not extract himself:


From this seminar arose two further ventures: the Consortium of Psychotherapists; and the ‘Sunday Group’, which met monthly to learn about the new therapies. This group met in Penelope Balogh’s home, 29 St Mark’s Crescent, NW1.

St Mark’s Crescent is in Primrose Hill, which was where Uncle Harry’s nephews were brought up; they inherited the house when Uncle Harry’s sister and brother-in-law died.

Neighbours - Channel ELEVEN - Network Ten


I never watched ‘Neighbours’, but I did know the theme song. When Patient F was still living in Carneddi with the woman who knew Dafydd’s gang and who fleeced him in collusion with other members of the gang (see previous posts), one of his neighbours was a thug. One day F was outside singing the theme song to ‘Neighbours’ and just as he got to the bit ‘that’s when neighbours become good friends’, the window of The Thug’s house flew open and his wife stuck her head out and yelled out ‘will you fucking well shut up’. So F said, ‘Miriam you’ve got a mouth like the Mersey tunnel, I’m only singing’.

F went into his house and then the door flow open and in marched The Thug. He went to hit F and according to F ‘I didn’t plan it, but my foot just flew out in a reflex action and I got him right in the crotch. He yelled and bent over, everyone saw it and were laughing at him. He crept back to his house and I haven’t heard anything from him or bloody Miriam since’.

I remember the sensation in Carneddi when it all happened, a lot of the Oppressed were grateful to F because Miriam and The Thug caused a lot of people a lot of problems. But I wonder if The Thug and Miriam might have subsequently seen their opportunity for revenge? When the row happened, F was the stepdad to his then partner’s children and she hadn’t yet given birth to the baby who was hijacked and brought up by members of the gang after fallacious allegations were made about F. One of the insults that had been yelled at F by Miriam was ‘you’re a bloody hippy and your kids should all be taken into care’. That was why the hippies of Bethesda were so chuffed that a Hippy had crippled The Thug. I know how the gang works. When ammunition is needed against a target, the sex offending social workers of Gwynedd invite people to Share Information In Confidence. All lies are gratefully received. It’s open season, the gang are going to shaft someone, old scores will be settled.

In 1973, the idea of a formal training, both more thorough and more adventurous, was revived and was planned by Penelope Balogh and others. In June 1974, the Lady Balogh’s Psychotherapy Trust was created, with AGIP as an ‘autonomous part’ of it. In September 1974, AGIP took its first intake of students.


Penelope Balogh died in June 1975. In Oct 1975, Andrew Netwon shot Rinka, Norman Scott’s dog and then tried to shoot Norman.

AGIP’s Constitution was adopted at the inaugural General Meeting of 24January 1981, held at Burgh House, Hampstead. The first meeting of AGIP Council was held in September 1982, in which year also AGIP was represented at the first ‘Rugby’ Conference for Psychotherapy.

In 1987, following much debate throughout the organisation, the Trustees sold 29 St Mark’s Crescent, which was too expensive to maintain. It was decided to re-invest all the money in another large property, which could be a Trust headquarters for potential use by all the sections of the Trust (by then including ENWLPC, SLPC and the Freegrove Society). The Trustees accordingly bought 1 Fairbridge Road, N19, to which AGIP moved.

During the 1980s and 90s, AGIP members played a prominent part in establishing the United Kingdom Standing Conference for Psychotherapy (the beginnings of the UKCP).

Dorothy Hamilton, AGIP’s then Director, was its Honorary Secretary from 1986 to 1992. In 1989, AGIP was enrolled as a member at the inaugural meeting of the UKSCP and in 1992, AGIP’s training was accepted by the Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Section of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. In 1993, AGIP therapists were enrolled on the UKCP Register.

In 1994, the Trustees provided funding for the Fairbridge Clinic for low-fee paying patients, which was opened and subsequently operated by AGIP.

During the 1990s, it became apparent that AGIP was becoming too large and important to remain a ‘part’ of another organisation, and that it needed its own legal status. In 1996, the Trustees made an offer to facilitate AGIP’s independence from the Trust: a joint Working Party was formed to review the matter. Separation was achieved at the end of 1999, when AGIP became a Company Limited by Guarantee and thus entered a new phase of its history as a fully independent legal entity.

The Waterhouse Report was published in Feb 2000, but those In High Places knew the contents by the end of 1999.

Tommy Balogh’s second wife was Catherine Storr, Top Doc herself and the former wife of Top Doc Anthony Storr. Catherine Storr (born Catherine Cole, 21 July 1913- 8 January 2001) was psychiatrist and an English children’s writer, best known for a series of books about a wolf ineptly pursuing a young girl, beginning with Clever Polly and the Stupid Wolf. She also wrote under the name Helen Lourie.


Catherine was born in Kensington, one of three children of a barrister, Arthur Frederick Andrew Cole (1883–1968) and his wife, Margaret Henrietta, born Gaselee (1882–1971). She attended St Paul’s School, where she was taught music by Gustav Holst and became the school’s organist. She went on to study English literature at Newnham College, Cambridge. Catherine then studied medicine, qualifying in 1944. From 1950 to 1963 she worked as a Senior Medical Officer in the Department of Psychological Medicine at the Middlesex Hospital, which was run by Gwynne’s mates, as he lobotomised away up in north Wales. While Gwynne was busy, Catherine wrote children’s books as well as worked as a Top Doctor. Catherine also worked as an Editorial Assistant for Penguin Books, from 1966-early 1970s.

Catherine had met the psychiatrist and author Anthony Storr (1920–2001) during her training and married him in 1942. She had three daughters by this marriage, Sophia, Polly and Emma. They divorced in 1970 and she subsequently married the Tommy Belogh.

Richard Crossman made reference to Tommy’s wife in his ‘Diaries’; it was Penny to whom he referred. Penny, like Tommy, was party to Cabinet information and occasionally turned up for socials and meetings.

Catherine continued writing novels into her 80s. She died at her London flat in January, 2001, the month before Waterhouse published the massive cover-up.

Catherine wrote two series of the ATV series ‘Starting Out’ (1973 and 1976), made to be shown in schools. She had two brothers, one being Hugo Cole, the music critic of ‘The Guardian’.

Anthony Storr (18 May 1920-17 March 2001) was born in London and educated at Winchester College, Christ’s College Cambridge and Westminster Hospital. Leo Abse’s brother Wilfred trained at the Westminster, as did his other brother Dannie. Wilfred and Dannie facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Wilfred was a psychiatrist who spent his early career working in Wales as part of Gwynne and Dafydd’s wider network. See post ‘O Jones, O Jones’.

In 1974, Storr moved from private practice to a teaching appointment at the Warneford Hospital in Oxford, until his retirement in 1984. Previous posts including ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends… and ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’ discussed the existence of an abuse ring in Oxford which was concealed by Oxford University, Oxford Social Services and Oxfordshire Health Authority, Dame Rosemary Rue reaching the highest echelons in medicine after she uncovered the ring. Crossman’s friend Dame Isabel Graham Bryce was the Chairman of the RHB who kept the lid on it all at the top before and during Crossman’s time.

Storr was, as one of his obituarists observed, “no stranger to suffering”. He married twice, to Catherine Cole and then writer Catherine Peters in 1970 after the first marriage ended in divorce.

‘The Guardian’ published Storr’s obituary in 2001, which was written by Anthony Stevens:

Anthony Storr, who has died of a heart attack aged 80, was Britain’s most literate psychiatrist. A prolific author, journalist and radio and television commentator, he was widely respected as a fount of wisdom and good sense in a profession not particularly noted for such qualities. Like other kind and compassionate men, he was no stranger to suffering at formative stages of his life.

Born in London, Storr was a solitary, friendless child, plagued by frequent illness, including severe asthma and septicaemia, from which he nearly died. He was the youngest of four children, separated by 10 years from his closest sibling. His father, Vernon Faithfull Storr, sub-dean of Westminster Abbey, was 51 when Anthony was born, and his mother, Katherine Cecilia Storr, was 44. They were first cousins, and their consanguinity probably accounted for his asthma, from which he, like two of his siblings, suffered for most of his life. He also seems to have inherited from his mother a tendency to occasional episodes of depression.

Growing up in the privileged seclusion of Dean’s Yard, Westminster, as virtually an only child, Storr was particularly affected by the trauma, shared by most boys of his class and time, of being sent away to a boarding prep school at the age of eight. There, and later at Winchester College, he was bitterly unhappy.

Having been deprived of a childhood peer group in which to learn the skills of comradeship, he was ill-prepared for the rigours of boarding-school life. Extremely slow to make friends, and showing little proficiency for games, he was bullied, and made only average academic progress. Though utterly miserable, it never occurred to him to complain to his parents, or attempt to run away, because boarding school was then a fact of life. But the sense of being a loner never left him, and was to affect the course of his career, as well as the content of his books.

What preserved his sanity and emotional equilibrium was a growing passion for music. From an early age, he attended performances in Westminster Abbey of such works as Bach’s St Matthew Passion, and was later allowed to sit in the organ loft, an enormous thrill.

At Winchester, he sang in the choir, played the viola in the orchestra and piano solos in concerts. He always maintained that he would much rather have been a professional musician than a psychiatrist or writer, had he been blessed with the necessary talent and training; he freely acknowledged that his friendship with artists of the calibre of Alfred Brendel, and the musicologist Hans Keller, meant far more than would have equivalent friendships with Freud, Jung or Adler.

Storr’s decision to become a psychiatrist was made soon after he went up to Christ’s College, Cambridge, in 1939. His moral tutor was CP Snow, who became a lifelong friend. “I owed him a tremendous debt,” Storr told me. “He was the first person who made me feel I might be any good at anything. I had disappointed my parents and teachers by not doing nearly as well as I should have. When I told Snow tentatively that I might go into psychiatry, he said, ‘I think you’d be very good at it.’ It was a ridiculous thing to decide one’s future on a chance comment like that. The crucial thing was that he liked me, and thought I could do it.”

After two years at Cambridge, Storr was given a wartime courtesy degree without taking a tripos, and continued his medical studies at Westminster hospital (1941-44), where he won prizes for medicine and surgery. He gained membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 1946.

His asthma precluded military service and, after a period as house physician at Runwell hospital, he went to the Maudsley hospital (1947-50), where he survived the ordeal of being Professor Aubrey Lewis’s first senior registrar on his newly-formed professorial unit. Lewis, an obsessional polymath highly critical of his staff, undermined the confidence of everyone who worked for him.

See previous posts for details of the insanity and brutality of Audrey Lewis and the frank abuse of patients by Lewis and his colleagues.

Storr stuck it for nearly two years, then asked to be moved, thus effectively ruining his prospects for advancement within the psychiatric establishment. “I owed Lewis one thing, at least,” admitted Storr. “Once you had suffered the experience of presenting a case at one of his Monday morning conferences, no other public appearance, whether on radio, TV or the lecture platform, could hold any terrors for you.”

He obtained the diploma of psychological medicine in 1951, and, developing an interest in analytical psychotherapy, went into analysis with Jung’s English friend and colleague, Dr EA Bennet. He later became a member of the (Jungian) Society for Analytical Psychology. He practised psychotherapy privately, and, from 1961, combined his practice with various hospital appointments as a consultant.

Storr’s reputation as a writer and broadcaster began with publication of his first book, The Integrity Of The Personality, in 1960. He was 40, and, up to that point, had not thought of himself as a writer. “I just felt the need to explain to myself what the hell I thought I was doing,” he said. “For me, that is the motive for writing anything. I get intrigued by a puzzle, and writing a book is the best way to solve it.”

During the next six years, 11 other books followed, of which the most notable were The Dynamics Of Creation (1972), Jung (1973), The Art Of Psychotherapy (1979), Solitude (1989), Freud (1989), his favourite, Music And The Mind (1993), and Feet Of Clay (1996).

Although he did a Jungian training, Storr declined to be labelled a Jungian, preferring to remain “an eclectic sceptic rather than a convert”. His books reflected this lack of dogmatism. His love of music and literature, together with his medical and psychiatric training, enabled him to bridge the “two cultures” defined by his friend, Snow.

Storr’s particular gift for rendering difficult concepts accessible, as well as his lucid, immensely readable style, made his books as appealing to lay people as to professionals, and his sales reflected this. All but two of his 12 titles have remained in print and, while sales were steady in the UK, they did particularly well in the United States, where Solitude sold 100,000 copies. The Essential Jung (1983) sold 50,000 worldwide, Freud sold 30,000 and Jung 75,000. The books were translated into 24 languages, including Korean and Malaysian, and Storr was especially charmed when Solitude was translated into Chinese for the republic of Inner Mongolia.

Perhaps as a result of his own unhappiness, isolation and depression, Storr’s work revealed an abiding concern for those trapped in suffering, whether as psychiatric patients, prisoners or victims of oppression and torture. He served as a member of the Parole Board (1976-77) and the Williams Committee on Obscenity and Film Censorship (1977-79), and his need to penetrate the mysteries of deviant or violent behaviour was apparent in his books on Sexual Deviation (1964), Human Aggression (1968) and Human Destructiveness (1972).

At the same time, his understanding of human psychopathology gave him a rich appreciation of the creative possibilities inherent in mental suffering, and the powerful potential for self-healing to be found in artistic and intellectual creativity. This made him impatient with the medical model for psychiatry and its obsession with its symptomatic classification. “I want to show,” he wrote, “that the dividing lines between sanity and mental illness have been drawn in the wrong place. The sane are madder than we think, the mad saner.”

In 1974, Storr gave up private practice in favour of a teaching appointment at the Warneford hospital, Oxford; a post he held until his retirement in 1984. He was very happy in Oxford, enjoying dining rights at Wadham College and becoming a fellow of Green College, where he built his library from scratch.

Dafydd’s mate the Bastard Of Newcastle-upon-Tyne Lord John Walton was Warden of Green College. Lord John Walton’s presence as Chairman of the GMC for years during the 1980s and 90s ensured that no complaints against Gwynne, Dafydd or Tony Francis were ever investigated, although there were many of them and very serious ones. See previous posts.

A number of honours were granted him in appreciation of his contribution to psychiatry and literature. He was elected emeritus fellow of Green College (1984), fellow of the Royal Society of Literature (1990), and honorary fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (1993). The generosity of spirit, so apparent in his writing, was no less evident in his personality, and was freely expressed in the warm support and encouragement he gave to younger psychiatrists, psychotherapists and writers, as well as to the patients who came to consult him from all walks of life…

The Torygraph, March 2001, also provided an obituary for Storr:

ANTHONY STORR, who has died aged 80, made his name as the author of popular and erudite books on psychiatry, and as a broadcaster who was able to tackle the difficult subject of mental illness with lucidity and compassion.

Storr’s subjects ranged from sexual deviation to human aggression and from the individual’s need for solitude to the impulses of creativity. In all his work he revealed a deep sympathy for those trapped in mental suffering; at the same time, he retained an abiding belief in the therapeutic value of artistic and intellectual endeavour.

Although he had been trained under the influence of Jung and was receptive to the theories of Freud, Storr assimilated their ideas without being slavish. He rejected the dogmatic excesses of his profession and was impatient with those who sought to compartmentalise mental illness. He was vehemently opposed to the use of compulsory treatment, once observing that “the sane are madder than we think. The mad saner”.

Like many who have pursued a career in psychiatry, Storr himself was no stranger to mental anguish. His compassion for others was born of his own unhappiness and loneliness as a child and informed by the recurrent bouts of depression that affected him throughout his life. Charles Anthony Storr was born on May 18 1920 and brought up in the shadow of Westminster Abbey where his father, Vernon, was subdean. The youngest of four children by 10 years, Anthony was a chronic asthmatic, frequently plagued by illness. He also inherited from both parents a tendency to depression.

Storr was desperately unhappy at boarding school, where he was sent at the age of eight. Shy, nervous and bad at games, he was bullied and found it difficult to make friends. But he discovered that he could “ingratiate” himself with other boys by listening to their problems, a strategy that allowed him to relate to his peers without exposing himself to ridicule or rejection.

He also found solace in music. At Winchester he sang in the choir, and played the viola and piano. At home, he would often take his gramophone at night to the organ loft of Westminster Abbey and luxuriate as the strains of Bach or Handel reverberated around the empty nave. Later in Music and the Mind (1992) he disputed the Freudian theory that the purpose of music was to sublimate the libido, preferring to see it as creating “order within the mind”.

From Winchester College Storr went up to read Medicine at Christ’s College, Cambridge, where the novelist and scientist C P Snow became his tutor and friend. Snow encouraged his interest in psychiatry and when Storr’s father died in 1940, leaving him with insufficient money to complete his degree, Snow persuaded the college to provide the necessary funds.

Exempted from military service because of his asthma, Storr continued his medical studies at the Westminster Hospital Medical School after leaving Cambridge in 1941, and then became a houseman at Runwell Mental Hospital. He worked subsequently at the Maudsley Hospital where he did postgraduate training in Jungian psychiatry, gaining a diploma in 1951. Soon afterwards he set up in private practice, combining this work with staff appointments at various London hospitals.

In 1960, Storr published an article in the ‘New Statesman’ entitled Torture Without Violence in which he exposed the wartime use of psychiatrists to interrogate and torture prisoners. The ensuing public outcry led to Storr’s being co-opted on to a Government committee charged with formulating rules to outlaw the psychological torture of prisoners.

At that time Storr had no intention of becoming a full time writer. His first book, The Integrity of the Personality (1960), was written not for publication but in order to clarify his own thoughts on the relationship between the psychotherapist and his patient. The book’s popular appeal encouraged him to continue writing and other works followed fast and furiously.

In Sexual Deviation (1964 – part of the Penguin Studies in Social Pathology) he suggested, controversially, that the suffering of children who had been sexually abused “is more the result of adult horror than of anything intrinsically dreadful in the sexual contact itself”.

In Human Aggression (1968), he observed that aggression is a normal aspect of the human psyche and that, rather than suppressing or denying our violent impulses, they should be usefully channelled into competitive sports or in scientific or artistic pursuits. He expanded this theme in Human Destructiveness (1972), a book conceived in horrified response to the newsreels of Belsen he had seen at the end of the Second World War.

Storr saw human creativity as the flip-side of man’s capacity for cruelty and violence, and in The Dynamics of Creation (1972) he argued that artistic creativity has a therapeutic value in helping the artist and his public to achieve a greater understanding of themselves.

In Churchill’s Black Dog and Other Phenomena of the Human Mind (1980) he explored the links between creative genius and mental illness, suggesting in the title essay that it was Sir Winston Churchill’s recurrent bouts of depression that enabled him to express his country’s suffering in wartime and discern gleams of hope in apparently hopeless situations.

Storr retired from his psychotherapy practice in 1974 to take up a teaching appointment at the Warnefield hospital in Oxford. During the late 1970s he served as a member of the Parole Board and on the Williams Committee on Obscenity and Film Censorship. He also became a frequent participant in radio and television discussion programmes and wrote and presented television documentaries for the BBC.

In Solitude: a Return to the Self (1988) he challenged the popular view that happiness lies in human relationships; solitude and reflection, he suggested, are just as vital prerequisites of human happiness, as well as being essential for personal development.

In his final book, Feet of Clay (1996) Storr argued that there are psychological similarities between “crazy” messiahs, such as Jim Jones, the cult leader who led 900 of his followers to mass suicide in Guyana in 1978 and “respectable” religious leaders, including Jesus Christ.

As a writer and broadcaster, Storr cut an authoritative, urbane, almost avuncular figure. Yet throughout his life he remained subject to attacks of depression and self-doubt which he described as a “lot of ups and downs but not enough ups”. Perhaps not surprisingly, psychiatry helped him to cope with his own problems and he remained convinced that his manic periods were a vital mainspring of his own creative energy.

Anthony Storr married first, in 1942, Catherine Cole (the children’s writer Catherine Storr) by whom he had three daughters. The marriage was dissolved and he married secondly, in 1970, the writer Catherine Peters.

Storr was honorary consultant psychiatrist for Oxford Health Authority…
It is a stereotype, but they really all were barking mad and very, very nasty. In the wake of public horror at the conduct of people like Aubrey Lewis and Dr Death’s old boss William Sargant, Anthony Storr’s generation learnt to use the touchy feely language of the emotions to excuse their own abuses and the serious criminality of themselves and their friends. We all watched Tony Francis do it for years. The Storrs and Francis’s weren’t as identifiably mad as Dafydd and Gwynne but the documents in my possession demonstrate that they were fully on board, every bit as dangerous but knew that prison sentences would cometh if a different sort of public image was not created. Their power did not lie in any expertise or successful convincing of senior politicians; they were deeply unpopular and every Minister of Health and PM has privately – and in Ken Clarke’s case publicly – denounced the BMA as absolute bastards who are impossible to deal with. But the BMA know about all that very serious crime that foolish politicians relied upon a corrupt medical profession to conceal.
 The original members of the Westminster Paedophile Ring are virtually all dead now, as are the generation of Top Docs and social workers who led us into an abyss. But Death Shall Have No Dominion because their former students and junior colleagues, children and grandchildren have now taken their place and will do anything rather than admit what went on.

Extracts from a piece published in ‘The Times’ on March 9, 2010 reflecting on the development of public health as a specialism in medicine:
Read carefully, note how many of those who protected Dafydd and the gang are mentioned and how much scrapping over status and power took place.
Dr Wilfrid G Harding CBE, FRCP, formerly Medical Office of Health for the London Borough of Camden and President of the Faculty of Community Medicine…
The Creation of the Faculty of Public Health:
A personal reflection by Walter Holland
 Emeritus Professor of Public Health Medicine
 Member Provisional Council/Board,1971-1972
 Member of Faculty Board,1972-1975
 President Faculty 1989-1992
This is a personal account of my experiences and views. A far more
comprehensive document is available which has some details of the
minutes of meetings which took place. This was prepared by Prof Michael
Warren, who was the first Academic Registrar of the Faculty… The Ministry’s first Chief Medical Officer, Sir George Newman, reiterated the Second World War brought on many changes that had an effect on
population health such as improvements in nutrition. The introduction of the National Health Service in 1948 had a major impact on public health. The strength of the public health departments had been evident during the war when the personal authority of MOH’s [Medical Officers of Heath] proved essential to the organisation of the emergency services for civil defence. Services for mothers, babies and school children had been greatly improved and broadened through the activities of public health departments, though with some friction with the general practitioners and not much help from paediatric or obstetric Hospitals.
Foundation of the NHS
The speciality had expected the NHS would be introduced as part of local
government with an expected expansion of the service provided by local
authorities. They were gravely disappointed. Seeds of antagonism between
LA services and the voluntary hospitals had been present for some time, but
public health, not for the first or last time, did not grasp political reality. It
grossly underestimated the power of concentrated lobbying by the BMA, the
Royal Colleges and the voluntary hospitals….
In 1965 the Seebohm Committee…was set up to consider the organisation and responsibilities of the local authority personal social services. Social workers were also anxious to emerge as a separate professional group not under public health control. Prof Jerry Morris was a member of this Committee. When it reported, in 1968, it recommended the establishment of a unified social service department in each major local authority. This was welcomed by the social work profession, although not unexpectedly it was criticised by the MOHs on the grounds that it perpetuated the division between health and welfare services and residential care for the elderly, mentally ill and handicapped and lost another opportunity for integration…
Another group anxious for its independence from public health supremacy at this time was environmental health…was embodied in the National
Health Service reorganisation Act 1973.
Medical education
…the Todd Commission stimulated the change in the
organisation, accreditation, and education in public health. From the service side this was led by Dr Wilfrid Harding, who was MOH of the London Borough of Camden, and a very senior figure in the Society of Medical Officers of Health. He was also a personal friend of Lord Rosenheim, President of the Royal College of Physicians and Professor of Medicine at University College, London. Change was also facilitated by the proposed changes in the structure of the NHS, which envisaged public health becoming part of the NHS. The roles that community medicine would play in the NHS was outlined in the Hunter report… Academics were almost all members of the Multidisciplinary Society of Social Medicine. Many had considerable renown, both nationally and internationally, e.g. cancer of the lung (Hill and Doll), chronic respiratory disease (Reid), coronary heart disease (Morris) and tuberculosis (Alice Stewart). But relations between academe and service were minimal. My department at St Thomas’s Hospital Medical School was one of the few to have working relations with service departments (Kent County Council, London Borough of Harrow). A major concern in the creation of the Faculty by the members of the Society for Social Medicine was the place of non-medical members of the Society in the proposed Faculty. Prof McKeown, of Birmingham, was particularly concerned with this. Membership of the Faculty. Unfortunately, because it was considered essential that we should be closely affiliated to the RCP, and because the majority of those affected by the initial negotiations were medically qualified, we were unable to achieve equal status for the medical and non-medical individuals. The provisional committee was able to ensure that its first honorary fellow was Austin Bradford Hill, a medical statistician. Achieving equivalence for non-medical graduates has taken many years, in spite of support for this from many members, particularly the academics. This difference between non-academics’ and academics’ in
attitude was, unfortunately, common in many matters at the beginning of the Faculty. It has, gradually, disappeared. Another major issue at the beginning was the equivalence of membership of the RCP and of the proposed Faculty. Morris and Harding, encouraged by Rosenheim, expected that members of the Faculty would be able to progress to Fellowship of the College, in the same way as members of the College. One of the senior physicians at St Thomas’s Hospital was John Harman (father of Harriet). We used to meet at lunch at the time of the negotiations for the creation of the Faculty. He was also Senior Censor of the RCP [Royal College of Physicians]. One day, at lunch, we discussed the formation of the Faculty. He was in favour, but was concerned. He emphasised that the College President, Lord Rosenheim, was giving false encouragement to Morris and Harding. There was no chance that the Fellows of the College would approve equivalence. He felt that Comitia (the ruling body of the College) would reject such a proposal….
Tenure of the President
Another piece of advice from Harman was the tenure of the President. At that time (in the early 70s) PRCP’s could serve for many annual terms (Presidents of the RCP are elected annually). Harman pointed out that it was difficult to get rid of a President, if he was elected annually, and gave examples how, in their later years, PRCPs, with long tenure, had outlived their “sell by date”. ..
Nomination of first President
Another interesting issue in the formation of the Faculty, not recorded by
Warren, was the nomination of the first President. In discussions between
many of those involved in the creation of the Faculty it had been considered
that the first President should be a highly prestigious figure, with an
international reputation. Richard Doll was considered an ideal candidate…
At the last meeting of the Provisional Board, before the
inaugural meeting in March 1972, Harding, the Chairman of the Provisional
Board, before the coffee break, announced that he had received a letter from
Doll withdrawing his candidature because of his workload as the new Regius
Professor of Medicine at Oxford University. This was received with great
consternation. Harding stated that we would discuss this after the coffee
break as we had very little time to make other arrangements.
Part 2 Faculty
Several of us (I believe it was George Forwell, Tom Anderson, Archie
Cochrane, Mike Heasman, Ron Lowe and Walter Holland) were extremely
concerned by this turn of events. We thought that as this matter had been
sprung on us at the last possible minute it was likely that the meeting would
propose Harding as its nominee, as he had done so much to promote the
creation of the Faculty and it would be difficult to oppose this nomination. We were very uncomfortable with this. Harding was not popular with academics or the Society for Social Medicine. The five of us discussed the situation for about one minute (as far as I can recollect) and turned to Archie Cochrane and unanimously urged him to agree that we should, immediately after the coffee break, and before Harding as Chairman could start a discussion, put forward Archie Cochrane’s name as the Provisional Board’s nominee for first President. Archie did require persuasion, but agreed that we could do this. Harding was surprised, but it was accepted by the meeting and Harding became our second President.
Membership of the Faculty
Since the Faculty was to be responsible for the professional standards of its
members it obviously had to set an appropriate examination. It was rapidly
agreed that the Faculty would follow in the footsteps of its parent Colleges
and would not accept exemption from this examination because candidates
had relevant academic qualifications such as MD or Ph.D. Initially, for a period of 2 years, registered medical practitioners practising in the UK and fulfilling the following conditions would be eligible for consideration by the Provisional Council of the Faculty for immediate election to membership without examination:
(1) Appropriate higher postgraduate qualification
(2) Five years’ experience in community medicine
(3) Promotion above the basic grade in the relevant field of community
Page 8
At the inauguration in March 1972 900 members were elected, of whom 144
were elected as Fellows.
Clinical Responsibilities
In admitting aspirants to the Faculty under the “grandfather” clause two
groups posed problems. It was agreed that that the Faculty should be
concerned with population medicine rather than individual medicine. Part of the concerns were historical – as described many of the first MOHs had been, and were, general practitioners. It was, at the beginning, important that the Faculty should not be in competition with the RCGP, thus general practitioners with an interest in public health were not considered eligible. Clinical and Child Health Medical Officers posed particular problems. There were many exhaustive discussions about individual applicants from this group of practitioners. The question was always the balance between individual medical practice and population responsibility. There was little generation of goodwill between the proposed Faculty and this group.
Allied to this question was whether some academics with the label of Clinical Epidemiology, who often did have responsibility for individual patients, were eligible. Arguments were not as heated as with the Clinical Medical Officer
group. There was little argument of their contribution to Epidemiology rather
than patient care.
Occupational Medicine
It has often been asked why individuals from Occupational Medicine were not
included in the Faculty. Many on the Provisional Board wished them to be
included. Several very senior occupational physicians such as Prof Richard
Schilling, of the LSHTM, Dr PAB Raffle (CMO of London Transport), Dr D
Slattery (CMO of Rolls-Royce) and Prof C McDonald of the LSHTM were in
favour of this, but the great majority of those in occupational medicine
considered themselves to be clinicians rather than population doctors.
They were mostly general practitioners or hospital physicians with part-time responsibilities in occupational medicine. They wanted closer relations to the RCP rather than to one of its Faculties. Thus the Faculty of Occupational Medicine (FOM) was founded. We agreed to support this and established links between the Faculties for mutual endeavours.
Looking back on the foundation of the Faculty it is important to be aware that Public Health, after its 19th century achievements, has always had difficulties in establishing its role and esteem. The dramatic advances in treatment first of infective conditions and later of chronic conditions such as coronary heart disease have always, in the public mind, overshadowed the far more effective public health measures such as vaccination ,or the identification of the hazards of smoking and its prevention, lack of exercise and diet in the control of disease. It is unfortunate that we have never been able to make our subject more “sexy”. But, in addition, we have, as a group, always been concerned with inequalities and alleviation of poverty, which has diminished our appeal to many politicians and powerful financial, commercial and industrial interests.

Patrick De Mare

Doctor healed soldiers’ mental scars

PATRICK De Mare, who has died aged 92, was a psychotherapist whose work helped promote the use of group analysis. It was to become a key tool in his chosen field.
Dr De Mare was born in London in 1916. He wanted to be a doctor, and, after leaving St George’s Hospital medical school in 1941, was signed up in the Royal Army Medical Corps.
It was an interesting time to work as a psychiatrist: the First World War had seen ground-breaking work in diagnosing and treating trauma, and with battle casualties arriving home, Dr De Mare had plenty of patients to look after and study.
He served at Northfield Hospital in Birmingham with a group of colleagues who would all make their names in the field of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy after the war.
Northfield became the centre of a series of experiments led by eminent physicians Dr Sigmund Foulkes and Dr Wilfred Bion, which studied how to deal with trauma caused by war.
Dr De Mare was inspired by the experiments and was appointed consultant psychotherapist at St George’s Hospital.
In 1960, Wilfred Foulkes and Dr De Mare set up a private clinic, the Group-Analytic Practice. From this work sprung the Group Analytic Society and then, in 1971, the Institute of Group Analysis. He had moved from Fitzrovia to Redington Road, Hampstead, in the 1960s and away from his work he became known for his love of good food, music and hosting parties.
Dr De Mare was an accomplished accordion, banjo and ukelele player. He would play his accordion at bars and cafés in Hampstead. He also had a love of opera, and would play music at his practice in Baker Street.
Before he died, colleagues were collating his papers to publish in a collection, which will now be done posthumously.
He is survived by his wife Turid, two daughters, six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Bertie, Prince of Wales:

Would Uncle Harry’s nephew be good enough to return my documents please?


Theatre of the Absurd

My post ‘The Science of Animal Behaviour’ discussed Dafydd and Tony Francis’s Top Doc colleagues and friends who were facilitating organised abuse in Greater Manchester/Salford, in particular Professor Hugh Freeman, who had led the mental health services in the Greater Manchester area, 1961-88 and just like his colleagues in north Wales, had pioneered an excellent service that was the envy of the rest of the UK. Freeman’s propaganda was greatly assisted by him being Editor of the ‘British Journal of Psychiatry’ for many years and Vice-Chair of MIND, 1984-88, which as any fule kno Fought For Patients’ Rights, while being run entirely by Dafydd and his friends. When during the late 1980s/early 1990s, police investigations began into the various paedophile rings operating via the Social Services Depts in the UK, Hugh Freeman took the propaganda to a new level, becoming an historian of psychiatry and managed to get Professor Roy Porter, the biggest name in the history of medicine in the UK and possibly internationally as well, to join Freeman in his Lord Haw-Haw activities. See post ‘The Wrong Set’.
Before I discovered Hugh Freeman, I had thought that Dafydd’s outpost at Manchester had been largely established by Dafydd’s former boss and mate who ran the ring at the Maudsley for years, Dr Bob Hobson, who relocated to Manchester in 1974. See post ‘The Mentor’. Dafydd’s mate and umbrella Professor Kenneth Rawnsley who orchestrated matters from Cardiff from 1966 onward had previously been based at Manchester (see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’) but I didn’t realise how substantial the fortress at Manchester was and for how long it had existed.
The Top Docs at Manchester University were not the only Paedophiles’ Little Helpers. Other academics were on board as well. Philosopher Dorothy Emmet was mates with Bertrand Russell and with the alternative crowd in Llanfrothen and Cwm Croesor. Dorothy was a colleague of some very influential political scientists as well as a big mate of Max Gluckman, one of the biggest names in social anthropology. Professor Eric Sunderland, the well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend who was called to Bangor in 1984 as the Principal of UCNW for the purposes of reinforcement, was a social anthropologist who knew Max Gluckman. See post ‘Vested Interests Or A Common Pool?’.
Then there was Isabel Emmett, a social anthropologist from Manchester University (Isabel was surely something to do with Dorothy but I cannot find an explanation for the difference in the spelling of their names anywhere), who married a farmer from Croesor and knew everyone down there, locals as well as Bertrand Russell’s alternative friends and who carried out a famous community study of Llanfrothen, ‘A North Wales Village: A Social Anthropological Study’, published in 1964. Isabel Emmett carried out a lot of other interesting work in north Wales as well, including a study of youth in Blaenau Ffestiniog in the late 1960s, which described local young people trying to be With It in the face of a profoundly small c conservative ‘Welsh culture’. See posts ‘The Village’, ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’ .
Isabel’s husband was friends with the ‘Welsh speaking psychiatric social worker’ who was appointed in (I think) the late 1960s to ‘safeguard the rights of Welsh language speakers’, but who actually made it even easier for Gwynne and Dafydd to imprison and lobotomise dissenters on the say so of Bertrand Russell and his mates, because no-one even had the excuse of ‘you have assessed this person in a foreign language’ any longer. Not that language was ever an excuse that could have been used anyway; Gwynne and Dafydd were first language Welsh speakers and spoke English as well, so the saga of the Welsh speaking psychiatric social worker was the ultimate red herring. Particularly as he was appointed after Dafydd had constructed himself as a Patriotic Welshman Who Supported The Language and had stood as a Parliamentary candidate for Plaid. It will have been Dafydd himself who lobbied for the post of a Welsh speaking psychiatric social worker to destroy people in their first language, Dafydd will have secured the funding and then asked Bertrand Russell if he knew anyone who wanted the job.
The ‘Welsh Bloomsbury Set’, the English radicals who had settled in the Cwm Croesor area as a result of the presence of Russell and Sir Clough and Lady Amabel Williams-Ellis, were friendly with some of the local Plaid activists and some of the English contingent used their experience of activism with regard to eg. anti-nuclear protests to help some Plaid activists. See posts ‘A Message of Peace At Christmas’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’. I heard some anecdotes of interesting night-time raids by Plaid activists skilfully assisted by the old war horses with experience of Aldermaston etc. By the late 1970s, relationships between the English which made up the Welsh Blooomsbury Set and the local Welsh speakers in Cwm Croesor had become very bad and resulted in most of the English radical crowd leaving the area, particularly when Sir Clough’s grandson, Robin Llywelyn, who had inherited his grandfather’s estate, refused to renew the tenancies of their second homes on the estate. Robin did this in the name of Plaid, of which he was a supporter and the problems caused by English second homers in the area.
English second homes were causing a problem in some parts of Gwynedd in terms of pushing prices up beyond the range of local people etc but not in Croesor. It was definitely not an issue in that particular part of Gwynedd. Neither had the language difference caused a problem. The sort of English people who hung out at Croesor were the last people to be monolingual bigots; they were Oxbridge graduates who often spoke several languages themselves. They didn’t take their holidays in parts of Spain because there was a pub with staff who spoke English and supplied fish and chips there. Although some of the alternative crowd helped with the Plaid activism, Eric Hobsbawm did fall out with local people who supported Plaid because he hated nationalism of any sort, being Jewish and having witnessed what happened in central Europe during the middle years of the 20th century. Local people were totally confused by Hobsbawm’s attitude to nationalism; one Croesor resident told me ‘He tried to say that we were like Nazis…’
So there was something very complex going on in Cwm Croesor by the 1970s. The Windbag had upset Welsh speakers in the north by being so hostile to the Welsh language and the locals had become very aware that although people like the Hobsbawms were personally friendly towards them, they were much, much wealthier than people in Croesor and the surrounding area. There was a feeling of ‘these posh English people are playing at being Welsh peasants, we are bloody well living it’, which I noticed in Bethesda some years later. I was friends with many hippies, I liked them, but yes, they could afford to be hippies because their families were going to hand over the dosh and a lot of it, when it was needed.
Robin Llywelyn, the grandson of an Anglo-Welsh aristocrat, had declared himself to be Of The Proles and had kicked his grandfather’s friends out of Cwm Croesor where they had spent so much of their lives for decades, so there was huge upset and Plaid were perceived to have been trying to make political capital by promoting hostility to English people.
Local Welsh people felt that they were being shafted by those in Westminster and the English Establishment.
The elephants in the room were Dafydd and Gwynne, two Welsh speaking Welshmen who waved their Welsh – and indeed Nonconformist – credentials about at every opportunity, while running the Westminster Paedophile Ring, supplying disadvantaged kids, Welsh and English, to posh people and others for sex.
The Terror of Existence: From Ecclesiastes to Theatre of the Absurd
The poor bloody locals at the bottom of the heap who’s parents were not Top Doctors, lawyers, social workers, teachers, lecturers or Councillors were really kicked in the teeth, because there was no-one who would defend them, no-one. There will have been people sympathetic but they will have been seriously compromised because their friends and relations will have been colluding and others will have just been frightened, knowing that it would be personal ruin for them and their families if Big Gwynne and Big Dafydd were challenged. Big Dafydd even destroyed Ron Evans in the end, the bent Gwynedd County Council lawyer who kept that lot out of prison and tried to put me in. You shouldn’t work for gangsters Ron, Dafydd and Gwynne weren’t L’Oreal babes who were worth it, they were horrible old gits who didn’t even have Richard Crossman’s panache re the Bay Rum Oil (see post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’) and they were not going to help the minions when the going got tough.

The far more sensible option would have been to, as one of the waitresses in Wetherspoons in Caernarfon used to say,’kick them in the cerregs’. That lot should have had their cerregs kicked by steel-toed hobnails a long time ago.
Here’s Elfyn, Plaid MP for the constituency which included Cwm Croesor, 1992-2015:
Elfyn was a solicitor and barrister who was President of Gwynedd Law Society, 1990-91. Elfyn’s former election agent, Thomas Merfyn Hughes, was a Welsh speaking psychiatric social worker who lived at Croesor. Merfyn was found dead at the bottom of an embankment, in someone else’s back garden in Llanfrothen in 2011. Merfyn’s body was hidden from the view of both the road and the house attached to the garden in which Merfyn’s body lay undiscovered for quite some time. At the inquest in Caernarfon, the coroner, Dewi Pritchard Jones, concluded that Merfyn had fallen down the embankment on his way home from the pub, decided to have a nap when he found himself in that nice comfortable garden at 2 am on a winter’s night and then died of hypothermia. See post ‘A Particularly Worrying Death’. Merfyn Hughes was the Gwynedd Social Services manager who in 2005 had, in person, retrieved documentation concerning me from the clutches of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team, after they unlawfully refused to hand it over. They should not have had the documentation in the first place and the data within should never have been released to them.
Bridget Lloyd was a CPN with the Arfon Community Mental Health Team; Bridget was the CPN assigned to ‘care for’ Ron Evans when he became seriously ill. Bridget found that there wasn’t much that she could do for poor old Ron. I met Bridget in 1985, when Jackie Brandt, a social worker with the Arfon CMHT, had unlawfully detained me in Ysbyty Gwynedd. Bridget knew the detention was unlawful and refused to let me leave the ward – threatening me with the police and heavies – until I had ‘seen’ Dafydd, who was just dying to meet me. I was left alone with Dafydd, who attempted to have a conversation about sex with me; I challenged Dafydd and he told me that I was ‘volatile and overwrought’. I wonder why that might have been? Not that I was as volatile as I could have been; when Dafydd began to talk dirty, I didn’t kick him in the cerregs and try to strangle him as well, I did a sort of How Very Dare You, but not quite a How Very Dare You, because How Very Dare You tends to make me laugh. Dafydd told me that if I didn’t get out of north Wales immediately he would have me arrested.
Realising that I was dealing with some rather dangerous people, I told Dafydd that of course I would go immediately. I did not say ‘but I’ll come straight back and investigate you, you threatening bastards, because something really big is going on here but I’m buggered if I can work out what it is’.
My next dealings with Bridget were in 1996. She made a statement to the police that Patient F had rung her up and sexually threatened her, that I was part of this venture and that she was so frightened of me and my intention to ‘attack’ her and ‘her young children’ that Gwynedd Community Health Trust had issued her with a personal alarm to carry at all times. Furthermore, a safe house for Bridget and her family was ready if I became even more dangerous. At the same time, Bridget sent a memo to her senior managers telling them that she had never been frightened of me and had only met me once, a long time ago and that she didn’t think that I’d recognise her if I saw her.
Patient F and I were subsequently acquitted at Caernarfon Magistrates Court. I had been charged as well, because although it was acknowledged that I had not played any part in the phone call – which had not contained sexual threats as claimed – I was in the house when the phone call was made, so we were charged with ‘joint enterprise’. I am told that there was quite a struggle in terms of selecting which charge to go for, in that it had to include me, yet I hadn’t had anything to do with the phone call. There was no apology and no investigation into the perjury, although Patient F and I raised the matter with Nerys Owen, the Director of Nursing for the Gwynedd Community Health Trust, who had some two and a half years previously been involved in a ‘resolution meeting’ when F and I made complaint about the constant aggression and fallacious accusations made about us by members of the Arfon CMHT. See post ‘The Banality Of Evil’. Why had F been phoning the Arfon CMHT anyway? He was angry because they had made yet another complaint to the police about us on the basis of no evidence, demanding that we be arrested.
The DPP at the time that F and I were charged with that particular ‘joint enterprise’ was Dame Babs. See previous posts eg. ‘A Future Leader Of The Labour Party’ and ‘The Mrs Mills Experience’ for details of Dame Babs’s extensive corruption and network and her valiant efforts at protecting the Westminster Paedophile Ring
Dame Barbara Mills
Barbara Mills.jpg
 Mrs Mills was married to John Mills, a millionaire and huge donor to the Labour Party. John Mills was the brother of David Mills, Silvio Berlusconi’s mate, who was married to Tessa Jowell. Tessa was the daughter of a Top Doc and had worked as a social worker at the Maudsley and as a child care officer for Lambeth Social Services when Lambeth were hosting a paedophile ring on their own patch with links to Dafydd’s gang and sending kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales. Tessa also served as Deputy Director of MIND for a number of years during the 1970s. The whole Mills crowd lived in Camden, which was the main residence of Eric Hobsbawm and so many of the other alternative crowd who spent long periods of time in the Cwm Croesor area.
When Patient F and I were charged, it was known that Ronnie Waterhouse would soon be holding the Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, that having been arranged by the Welsh Office:
William Hague
However, John Major did know that he would definitely lose the next election and thus the next incumbents were already measuring up for the curtains in No 10:
Cherie e tony elezioni del novantaquattro - Dago fotogallery
Cherie was a colleague of Michael Beloff QC, who, some months before Patient F and I were arrested and charged with ‘joint enterprise’, had served as the legal adviser who ensured that the Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974 was completely suppressed and read by no-one but lawyers and insurers and was then pulped. For a belt and braces approach, some two months after the Jillings Report was published, Clwyd County Council disappeared in a local authority reorganisation. The Chairman of the Boundary Commission who had recommended the reorganisation was Professor Eric Sunderland, who until very recently had been Principal of UCNW. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’
Michael Beloff was a regular at Chequers once Miranda was PM. Those we know and love also benefited from the assistance of Ron Evans at the time. By 2010, Ron Evans’s daughter was a Civil Service lawyer and working as Mandy’s right hand woman. Mandy had served as a Lambeth Councillor before he became an MP. By 2010, the paedophiles’ friends were doing everything possible to hound Merfyn Jones, the VC of Bangor University, out of his job and out of public life, as a result of Merfyn, his late wife and one of his friends spilling the paedophiles’ pints. Merfyn grew up in Llanfrothen and knew all about Dafydd and Gwynne. No 10 was known to have been demanding Merfyn’s head on a platter, throughout the Miranda years and the Gordon years. See post ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’. Merfyn’s wife died in the care of Dafydd’s mates at the Walton Centre in 2008, when they found that there was just nothing that they could do.

The Terror of Existence: From Ecclesiastes to Theatre of the Absurd


In August 2004 Elfyn Llwyd joined fellow Plaid MP Adam Price in a campaign to impeach Miranda over the alleged misleading of Parliament and for allegedly making a secret agreement with George Dubya Bush to overthrow Saddam Hussein, amongst other charges. Llwyd and the then SNP group leader Alex Salmon co-drafted the motion. If successful, it could have seen Miranda tried before the Lords; however, as expected, the measure failed. Not that it would have mattered if Miranda had been tried before the Lords, take a look at what Miranda did in his early years as PM: he stuffed the Lords full of People’s Peers and others who had played a major role in concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the branch of it run by Dafydd and Gwynedd. Such as Baroness Patricia Scotland, who, while Cunningly Disguised as a Black Woman Barrister, represented the Welsh Office at the Waterhouse Inquiry and tore people to shreds who told the Inquiry that as kids in care they had been gang raped and used for child porn. See posts ‘‘Baroness Patricia Scotland QC Was On Board As Well!’ and ‘More On Baroness Patricia Scotland QC – And Her Very Sleazy Friends’ and ‘Even More About Baroness Patricia Scotland QC’.

The Terror of Existence: From Ecclesiastes to Theatre of the Absurd


As for Saddam Hussein, I can remember him from the first time around. In the aftermath of Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait, there was a Vincent Kane show broadcast in Wales and the Monarchy was being discussed. Patient F and I were watching and for once Dafydd wasn’t on that Kane programme, but a daft old bag of a Councillor from Caernarfon was, the woman responsible for Social Services no less. At one point she stopped the discussion and said to Kane ‘I just want to ask, who would you rather have, the Queen Mother or Saddam Hussein?’ We pissed ourselves laughing on the grounds of ‘Is that the only choice?’ and then marvelled that this silly old bat was responsible for Social Services, no wonder we kept being arrested because those lying bastards had perjured themselves again.

After that Kane show, F enjoyed himself by going around Bethesda and Bangor and asking people ‘Who would you rather have, the Queen Mother or Saddam Hussein?’ One of those people was a man with a sense of humour who said ‘Saddam Hussein of course’. That particular man was one of ‘Dafydd’s addict patients’ and although F would stop and chat if he saw him in Bangor, F didn’t socialise with him because this man was rather sleazy, was violent and mistreated his female partners. F used to tell me why; this man’s father was ‘an absolute bastard’ of a prison officer who had ‘abused the whole family’. Furthermore when this man was 16, he had been offered money in return for sex by George Melly, who was staying over in Bangor after a performance at Theatre Gwynedd. The man said no, but F was sufficiently outraged by George Melly’s conduct to have told people what Melly had done in Bangor. As F noted, someone was saying yes to George Melly, even if the prison officer’s son who later developed drug problems and was Referred To Dafydd said no. That man didn’t give evidence at the Waterhouse Inquiry. I can only imagine what Baroness Patsy would have said to him if he had.

The Terror of Existence: From Ecclesiastes to Theatre of the Absurd

George Melly had a country retreat in the Brecon/Abergavenny area, 1971-99 and media interviews would often refer to George’s ‘bisexuality’ and ‘open marriage’, but not to his penchant for underaged boys. Melly was also the Face Of An Advertising Campaign at one point to promote Birmingham as a nice destination to visit. Dafydd’s mate Prof Robert Bluglass ran Birmingham’s NHS and kids in care from Birmingham were sent to children’s homes in north Wales.

One of the advisers to the Waterhouse Inquiry was Adrianne Jones, the former Director of Social Services of the City of Birmingham. Adrianne retired to Abergavenny. Adrianne was a ‘social work adviser’ and involved herself with many children’s charidees. See previous posts.

George Melly was from a high profile Liverpool family and went to Stowe School, where he had a gay relationship with Peregrine Worsthorne, who spent years as the Deputy Editor and then served as the Editor of the Sunday Torygraph, 1986-91. Sir Anthony Barrowclough, the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman who covered up a mountain of crap re Dafydd and the gang, including their criminality relating to me between 1985 and 1989, was at Stowe School with Melly and Perry. See post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’.

The Editor Of ‘The Sunday Telegraph’:

George Melly 1978.jpg

Perry left ‘The Sunday Torygraph’ after years of faithful service in 1997. The year that Ronnie Waterhouse opened the Waterhouse Inquiry.

 Another adviser to the Waterhouse Inquiry was Sir Ron Hadfield, Chief Constable of the West Midlands Police, June 1990-July 1996. Ron retired from the West Midlands Police straight into a job as Ronnie’s Inquiry’s adviser, in particular to advise on the questioning of witnesses. It was Sir Ron wot Cleaned Up The Rot in the West Midlands force. Sir Ron’s findings re the fitting up of the Birmingham Six by the West Midlands Serious Crime Squad are not available to be viewed by anyone for many decades, as a result of a security measure imposed on the file by DPP Mrs Mills. See previous posts. The West Midlands Serious Crime Squad was notorious for its corruption and was disbanded when so many of the convictions secured as a result of their handiwork were overturned. They framed people from north Wales, including Ali Khan from Caernarfon. He was awarded compensation as a result and shortly after, Ali Khan was arrested, convicted and imprisoned again. He maintains that this was yet another set-up as a punishment beating for daring to win against the police, but I don’t know the details of the case.

The Birmingham Six case caused a stir because everyone involved in the investigation and conviction were demonstrated to have been endemically corrupt, including the Home Office forensic scientists. Adrian Bell, one of the lecturers in the Dept Plant Biology at UCNW, used to work as a forensic scientist for the Home Office. He told the students that he left because the service was so corrupt. Adrian was my tutor when I was at UCNW and it was he who refused to respond when I told him that Brown, who was a student at Aston University in Birmingham at the time, had received death threats and was eventually been visited in hall by the man who sent them, held hostage while the man trashed Brown’s room with a swordstick and told Brown that he’d be back. Adrian then refused to answer the office door to me and ordered me to go to the Student Health Centre, to see the dreadful Dr D.G.E. Wood, one of Dafydd’s gang, who was married to a senior lecturer in the Dept of Plant Biology. Wood too ignored what had happened to Brown.

I didn’t know at the time, but one other lecturer in Plant Biology was married to a Gwynedd social worker who was a member of the gang and Prof Greig-Smith in the Dept of Plant Biology knew Prof Edred Henry Corner, the Cambridge botanist who was Douglas Hurd’s uncle. Hurd was Home Secretary, 1985-89, while the gang were in hot pursuit of Brown, me and our friends. Hurd was appointed Home Secretary in Sept 1985, which was approx two weeks after I contacted Keith Best, the Tory MP for Anglesey, about the mental health services in north Wales. Best was a Welsh Office Minister and Of Dafydd’s gang, but I didn’t know that at the time. I subsequently obtained info that suggested Tony Francis contacted Best himself, as soon as he thought that I was going to make a complaint…

There were numerous other links between the gang and the UCNW Dept of Plant Biology. See post ‘Additional Security Measures’. Hurd went to Eton, where his favourite teacher was Alan Barker and Hurd remained a good friend of Barker until Barker died. As a favour to Barker, when Hurd was in Gov’t, he gave Barker’s wife Trumpers – Baroness Jean Trumpington – a job with the UN. See post ’95 Glorious Years!’ Trumpers was a disaster at the UN but that didn’t stop Thatch, a friend of Trumpers, appointing her as a junior Health Minister, March 1985-June 87. I had the sudden and unexpected first confrontation with Tony Francis in March 1985; it was him lying to me and then lying again when I tried to clarify matters that led to the bigger bust up and me going to Keith Best. At the DoH, Trumpers appointed her friend Jimmy Savile to the management task force of Broadmoor Hospital, which enabled Savile to become General Manager of Broadmoor soon after. See posts ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’ and ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’.

In the 1990s, an utterly lame Independent Advocacy Association was established for Empowered Service Users in Gwynedd. See previous posts. It was funded by the NHS and Gwynedd County Council and the Independent Advocates were told not to support patients making serious complaints. All the Independent Advocates except for the two women who were in the senior paid positions were Empowered Service Users who were dependent upon the ‘services’ for their care and benefits and were terrified of the gang. One of the paid senior people was a woman called Marilyn and although overbearing, she too would not challenge the gang, even in the case of deaths. Marilyn’s partner was an Empowered Service User and she subsequently killed herself. Marilyn had a breakdown and left Bangor. She had been given a job as a Wimmin’s Advocate at Broadmoor.

In the late 1980s, a charidee to Help Wimmin in the secure hospitals was established, WISH, ‘Women In Special Hospitals’. WISH knew about Jimmy Savile and said nothing; they also knew about Dafydd and the gang and said nothing and they knew that the special hospitals were teaming with women who had been abused in care and abused again in the psychiatric system. Helena Kennedy was involved with WISH. See post ‘Close Your Eyes and Make A WISH’.

Helena was a member of Tooks Court Chambers with Michael Mansfield QC. I wrote to Mansfield in 1993, telling him of the abuses of Gwynedd Social Services. I received a one line reply. One of St Helena’s books contained an acknowledgement to Professor Nigel Eastman of St George’s Hospital Medical School, thanking him for helping her on so many cases. See post ‘Eve Was Framed – As Were A Lot Of Other People’. Eastman was one of those at St George’s who was colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring and was in direct contact with Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts eg. ‘Some Very Eminent Psychiatrists From London…’

The Birmingham representative of Dafydd’s gang went after Brown in 1983. That was the year in which George Thomas was given an hereditary Viscountcy by Thatch; it was pointless because Thomas was a gay paedophile with no heirs, so the title died with him in Sept 1997, while Ronnie Waterhouse et al were insulting those witnesses at the Inquiry. Dafydd and Francis’s friend Kenneth Rawnsley was married to child psychiatrist Dr Elinor Kapp, who was a founding Director of one of George Thomas’s medical charidees in Cardiff. See post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ For years, Sir William Asscher was the Top Doc at the top of the pyramid, in Cardiff University, keeping the lid on the shenanigans in Wales, including those of George Thomas. After Ollie Brooke was jailed, the Dean of St George’s was deposed. He was replaced by Asscher, who was headhunted for the job of running the HQ of the Westminster Paedophile Ring.

George Thomas died on Sept 22 1997. Diana went into that tunnel on 31 Aug 1997.
